CORRESPONDENCE.
For the Green Mountain Freeman.
Brother Aspenwall
Your reply to my inquiries relative to the posi
tion of the "Freeman," which appeared in the
sixth number thereof is by no means satisfactory.
Perhaps you did not understand me, and perhaps
the fault was my own that you did not. 1 will now
therefore try to state the question clear and expli
cit, viz: The question, is not; what do you think
of the "meritst"iA' Mr. Birncy's work. Nor is it,
whether you think, F, in my remarks, endorsed the
doctrine thus put forth by Mr. Birney. Nor yet
is it, whether you think I am an enemy to the
church, and therefore ought to take my stand
with Mr. Garrison, N. P. Rogers, Mr. Pillsuury
and others." But this is it, viz. "Is the position
of Mr. Birney that "the American church is the
bulwark of American Slavery," the position of the
"Green Mountain Freeman." And now Brother
Aspenwall, after having thus clearly stated the
main question proposed in my first communica
tion, unincumbered with with any remarks, I will
briefly notice some things contained in your reply
to it, us to my mind they are of u very extraordi
nary chai actor. Ami first. It is marvellous to me,
that a minister of that Gospel, whose cardinal
foundation principle, is that "charity," which
"thinketh no evil," should hold up u brother to
public reprobation, as an enemy of the church of
Christ, for no other reason than endorsing (and
even this I did not avow) the doctrine put forth
and ul'ly supported by the Hon. James p. Birney,
the Liberty Party candidate (or President of the
United States. And secondly. It is still more
marvelous, that either from the eagerness of your
desire to publish me to the world as an enemy of
the church, or by an unpardonable oversight or
from both these causes combined, you Sir, the
Editor of a Liberty Party party, should place
your candidate for President of the United States,
in so awkward a position. What io you think
Mr. Birney will say, w hen he sees himself ar
raigned by the "Green Mountain Freeman" as an
enemy of the church? Yes, and as a chastise
ment for bis temerity, in thus presuming to call
the church to an account, for chatteliziug the im
age of her God for selling her Lord to the high
est bidder, to find himself shut out fiom the col
umns of the "Freeman," and turned over to the
"Liberator," as "a more appropriate channel fur
such sentiments?" And w hat will he say to see
his name associated with "Mr. Garrison, N. P.
Rogers, Mr. Pillsbury and others," with the mot
to "that the first and great w ork to be done is the
destruction of the American church?" Will Br.
Aspenwall, I don't know what Mr. Birney will
cay to these things, but one thing I do know, and
thr.tis, I have such an exalted opinion of Mr. Bir
ney, both as a man, and a christian, that I shall
not feel very bad, for being thought by the "Free
man" to be his disciple, so far at least, as his
charge against the church in this matter is con
cerned. But I must now nay a vvord'nbout the
fhurcli, 01 rather, notice briefly what you said a-
tioul it in your introductory address, for I have not
itime at present to go at length into the subject of
the position of the church on this great question.
You say " we regard the christian church, (by
this we mean all its different branches) as an in
stitution of God. And though it has, in this coun
try, generally taken wrong positions on this great
.question,. lite almost every other department ol
society, we filial! labor for its reformation and not
iits destruction." Now sir, if you mean to nay that
God is the author of " all the different" sects of
professing cbrktiaKS, generally termed orthodox
in this country. You have assumed a position in
.my view equally at variance with the word of God
ns has the slavehoiding Christian, who maintains
that slavery, as it exists in the United States, is
" an institution of -God." T'he very secret of the
truth, thtit the " American Church is the bulw ark
of American slavery," is , the rivalry of those dif
ferent church organizations. In this they are sit
.uated just as the two great political parties are:
which you say are both "irretrievably sold to
slavery." And had you placed them all on a level
in this respect, I assure you that whether I could
exactly subscribe to the declartaion without a
, mending by striking out the word "irretrievably,"
I should not have troubled you with any qucs'ions
upon the subject. Far they have all legislated for
slavery. They have all trampled the image of
the blessed God in the dust. They have all vied
with each other in slandering anil opposing all
who have rallied around the standard of liberty, to
(maintain the heaven-derived principles that " all
men are created equal, and are endowed by their
Creator with certain inalienable rights, among
which are, life, liberty, and the pursuit -of happi
ness." You say truly, that slavery is "amoral
-evil a s'm against God," ai d that our " enter
prise is emphatically a moral reformation, and can
really be promoted only by moral and christian
measures." Why, then, I ask,in the name of reason
and religion, do you attach more imparlance to the
political parties than you do to the various church
organizations? Is not the answer found in your
churchparty attachments? When, I ask, has either
of the political parties, which you say are " irre
trievably sold to slavery," directly legislated away
the right of the christian eiave to testify against a
white man who may liave murdered, or ravished
his wife or daughter before his eyes? And yet
the Methodist Episcopal church has done this.
Yes, such has been the action of this church in fa
vor of the domestic institution, (in w hich church I
believe you stand an accredited minister,) that in
those States where the slave is not allowed to tes
tify in civil courts oguinst n white man, the poor
slave-christian may see his wife and daughter in
sulted nnd ravished before his eyes by a white
man; and that w hite man, and the colored man, and
his-wife and daughter, and twenty other slave of
unblemished christian character (being witnesses)
may all be members of the same Qhuich; and the
poor slave christian, and his wife and daughter, be
without remedy for all this suffering, even in the
church, because the Methodist Episcopal church
has decreed that these slave christians shall not be
allowed, in such case, to testify egni 1st their white
christian brother! Truly the church has "taken
wrong positions on this great question."
Again I ask: when and where have the political
parties perpetrated an act by direct legislation,
that will compare with this? And yet, while the
cutting rebuke is dealt out to the political parties,
that they aie "irretrievably sold to slavery,"
this church, claiming to bo the " pillar ami ground
of the truth," has only done as " almost every
other department of society" has done. And what
is that? Why, nothing, only ns we said, " taken
wrong positions upon this great question." Think
not, my ilear sir, that I mean to be invidious in
these remarks upon the action of your church.
I have befoie said that they have all vied with
each other in manifestations of fealty to the slave
power in the church, as the political parties have
to the slave power in the State. I would place
them all: church parties and political parties on a
level in this respect, with this single exception,
viz., "our enterprise is emphatically a moral ref
ormation, and can be really promoted only by
moral and Christian measures. Hence, as is the
proportion of the "moral and christian" influence
of the church greater than the "moral and chris
tian" influence of the whig and democratic pur
ties" such is the precise proportion of the guilt
and responsibility of tho church more than that of
the whig and democratic parties;. And to say that
these political organizations wield a mightier
" monil nnd christian" influence than does the
church, is a reproach infinitely greater even than
to charge her, as Mr. Biruoy has, with being the
"bulwark of American slavery." But when I
hear any thing like an apology for the church, for
standing where she does upon this question, I think
of poor Eli and his two sons Ilophne and Phine
has. You know that this Eli was a priest of the
Lord, and a very good man: but his sons, whom
he inducted into the priest's office, made them
selves very vile. And tho good old man, probably
wishing " not to destroy, but to reform" his two
sons, addressed them in the following very softly
maniier: " Why do ye such things? for I hear of
your.evil dealings by all this people. Nay, my
sons, for it is no good report that I hear: ye make
the Lord's people to transgress." And for this
want of faithfulness on the part of Eli, God said
of him to his prophet Samuel, " Behold, I wili do
a thing in Israel, at which both the cars of every
one that heareth it shall tingle. In that day I
will perform against Eli nil things which I have
spoken concerning his house: w hen I begin, I will
also make un cud." 0, Sir, (I speak not as a
prophet, but as one who believes that God is just,)
there is a storm gathering which will, ere long,
break upon what you call " an institution of God"
which will make both the ears of every one that
heareth the report thereof to tingle. Disguise it
as we may, our sin will find us out. The voice of
our brother's blood cries to heaven from the
ground. Yea, and God is demanding of the church
with a voice " sterner and louder," " Where is
thy brother?" - Yes, again and again, and yet a-
gain, has he thundered in the ears of his church,
as he diil in the ears of Egypt's haughty tyrants,
" let my people go that they may serve me!" And
surely he will make himself to be heard & obeyed
by the slave-cursed church of this country. I wish
nothing to be left undone which can lawfully be
done for the liberation of my brethren in bonds,
w hom 1 wish to remember as "bound with them."
But my heart sickens within me to hear an inti
mation that a moral enterprizc so great, so grand,
so glorious, as the emancipation of the slaves in
our guilty land being effected without the church.
I do not mean that the church should monopolize
this great work and the "lory of its achievement
to herself; but I do mean that the church should
be the pioneer in this ami every other moral enter
prise in the world. And w hen she ceases to be so,
she ceases to be "the light of the world the salt
of the earth."
Yours, for the overthrow of Slavery
throughout the World.
JOAB SEELY.
Montpelier, 22d Feb. 1841.
For the Freeman.
The Church,
"Ye are the light of the World." Matthew 8, 11.
Our Lord here teaches what the church should
be. She is not a dark body, is not to keep her
light hid, obscured; but. to let it shine out clear
and full, so that it may give light to all around.
And this should be done, that God may be glori
fied. Hence it is said, "Let your light so shine
before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your father which is in heaven. The
church must stand outbefire the world, must take
the lead in every good work, must be an example
the world; let their light shine, and so shine, that
others may see their good works. And what the
church ought to be as a body, each member should
be in his station. Here is the rule, plain, intelli
gible, and enforced by all the authority of Christ.
And would the churches follow it they would soon
break forth as the morning, and become to her en
emies terrible as an army with banners.
The church should take the lead in every benev
olent enterprise, cast her light around it, and ly
her wise counsels endeavor to preserve tho whole
from such foolish measures as lend to ruin and de-
stroy the whole mass. Would she so do, she
would he the light of the world, and the salt of the
earth. But when the church, or her leaders, hang
back, wait to see how the world moves, to lenni
w hat will be popular, and shape their course by
expediency, then we may be sure that their lirht
is gone out, and that their salt has lost its savor.
Then we may expect, that the bouse will bo divi
ded against itself, be involved in darkness, and sink
under God's displeasure. Now I request every
candid person to look at the position of the church
with respect ti) slavery. Most of them are ready
to say, that slavery is a moral evil, contrary to tho
laws of God, and oppression of the grossest kind,
and very few of the churches, except at tho south,
would bo willing to justify slavery. Well, some
of thejmctiihers in almost every church are ready to
say, tha't if slavery is a sin, it sliould be put out of
the church, and that it is as bad to fellowship tho
sin of slavery as the sin of drunkeness, or the sin
of horse stealing. At once an excitement is pro
duced, the spirit of conflict is roused, the minister
and leading members are in consultation, and mea
sures are devised, not to purge out this wicked
ness from the church; but to silence, or exclude
from the church, those men, w ho wish to have
this evil put away from among them. Are such
churches the salt of the earth? the light of the
world. Is there not sad evidence that the salt has
lost its savor, and is fit only for the dunghill?
Again let us look at the position of the church
as respects dueling. Dueling is murder, and in
most cases, murder of the most aggravating kind.
The duelist is then a murderer. His works are
works of darkness and, he shows by them that
he is a child of that wicked one, who was a mur
derer from the beginning. Christ came to destroy
the kingdom of satan, nnd established the church
as a proper organ to carry on his work, and by all
proper means destroy the work? of the devil. The
church should then be arrayed against dueling, and
do what she can to destroy that wicked work.
And did her light shine as it ought to do, she
would do more to destroy it, than all the enact
ments of Congress. The Northern church is more
than sufficient to bailee tho two great palitieal
parties and would she nobly say, I wilf never lend
my influence to support a bloody man, a duelist,
or a man that lives by oppression, for the Presi
dency, her power would be felt, her light would so
shine before others, that tliej would see her good
works, follow her example, condemn slavehoiding
and dueling, and teach political leaders a lesson,
which they would not soon forget. A public and
solemn protest would be recorded against dueling,
public sentiment would be corrected, and those
w ho wish to obtain public offices would soon learn
thatoppression and murder would not recommend
them to the church of God. Then our land would
no longer be defiled with garments soiled in blood,
shed to gratify feelings, which God abhors, and
the corrupting influence of wicked rulers might be
restrained. Why should not the whole church
take this high and honorable ground, obey her
Lord, vindicate hei o wu character, set a good ex
ample, bear her testimony against sins of the deep
est dye, and try to preserve the whole land from
the corrupting influence of wicked rulers, who
live by oppression, and are ready to shed blood?
Would not this be a proper way for her to let hei
light shine before men, ami to oppose the works
of the devil. And if it be her duty so to do, is not
each member of the church bound to do so also?
How can their light shine, if they east the com
mands of Christ behind their back, join w ith the
wicked, and honor murderers and oppressors?
Alas! must we not again acknowledge, that the
vineyard, which should have brought forth grapes,
hath brought forth wild grapes? And must wo not
fear, that God will say of it, "I will lay it waste: it
shall not be pruned nor digged; but thsre shall
come up briars snd thorns. I will also command
the clouds that thyruin no rain upon it. If any
man have ears to haixr, let him hear what the spir
it saith unto the churches.

Letter from the Editor.
Saratoga Springs, Aug. 23.
My Dear Poland .-Here I am, at this great
" Bethesda," surrounded by such a multitude as
cannot be found in any other place on the face of
the earth. You are aware that I was much worn
down by tho united labors of the office, the pulpit,
anil the sick room of my dear dying companion.
It was hoped by myself and friends, who unanim
ously advised me to take the journey, that relax
ation from labor, and a journey would invigo
rate my system, ami divert my mind from so keen
a sense of my unspeakable loss. So tar it has
succeeded quite as welljis could be expected, but
the sad thought of returning, not to the warmem-
ura(.es 0fa ,1)(Kt affectionate and dearlv loved fain-
! jV) )ut t0 mi(j tl,y mmjy broken up, and myself
1 a lonely wanderer, without a home, often forces
itself upon me, in spite of all my efforts, with a
painful, and almost overwhelming force.
-Our journey was rather pleasant. Traveling,
as we did, by private conveyance, and being obli
ged to make frequent calls, I had an opportunity
to ascertain the state and prospects of the cause
oflibet tv in a lai ro iiiniibor of places, and I re
j0;,.B lnat 01. i.e,H stand firm without a single
exception. I have not visited a place where their
number has not considerably increased since last
year. To hold our own this year, in the circum
stances in which we are placed, might well be
j consulnroil a victory; but I am satisfied that our
i increase will be areatur than it has been any fo in
mer year.
We arrived here in the midst of a whig mass
meeting, a borso race, upon whic h the principal
bet was $500,00, and a fisticuff fight, trom which
some less than a dozen came off with sore eyes &,
bloody noses. I am not certain whether the last
two wero of a political character, but they appea
red to be only appendages of the first. Of course,
political steam is rather big!) here, but I have Been
no place where the boilers are kept quite as hot
as they are in Montpelier village.
1 have never visited a place so thoroughly pro
slavery Rf this, A considerable share of the visit-
ors are slaveholders from the South, who come
here to squander away the hard but unpaid earn
ings of their slaves at home, which are extorted
from them by the overseer's gory lash. I should
think that the most of these put up at the United
States' Hotel, tho most extensive establishment in
the place. It has accommodated five hundred at
a time, and is said to have turned away some two
thousand during the present season for want of
room. The regular price for board is $4 00 per
week, and the extra expenses for real gentlemen
at the gambling establishments, &.(., must amount
to as much more tit least. Almost every kind of
gambling is carried on in, and around, these huge
buildings, without restraint or shame. To say
nothing about the card tables, at some of which
individuals are said to have lost from 15,00 to 2,
000 00 in a single night during the present week,
there are an abundance of bowling alleys, some of
which are devoted to the special use of the ladies,
shooting galleries, billiard tables, Sec, and a very
brisk business is going on in them all. The fa
vorite dace of resort with a class of whiskered
young ineii is the shooting gallery. Here they are
instructed to follow in the illustrious footsteps of
tho "great embodiment of whig principles." An
iron figure, the size and shape of a man, one side
covered with soft black paint, having a w hite spot
on the side resembling a heart, stands ul shooting
distance. I he keener of the estiil.lUhmnnf .
whose business is o 'teach the young idea how t
shoot,' gives the juvenile 'gentleman' information
how to stand, and how to hold his pistol, raise it
up, &c. When the fatal instrument is loaded and
handed to the 'gentleman,' the question is asked,
'are you ready ?' to which he answers, 'I am rea
dy,' and the word 'fire' follows with tho count
'one, two, three,' in quick succession. Before tlie
word 'three' is pronounced, the pistol is dischar
ged, and the bullet hits the iron-sided gentleman,
by which it is flatted, and a spot of paint removed
where the ball hits, w hich determines the place
where the charge takes effect upon the grim an
tagonist. Thirty-two shots, which are usually
made in half as many minutes, cost one dollar. I
have been thus particular in describing this kind
of training, for so far as I have seen, it is maiJe a
matter of instruction more than of game, for the
special benefit of those whigs who are expecting
ofliccs under Henry Clay's administration. Un
less they become 'gentlemen,' it is utterly foolish
for thcni to aspire to promotion under his reign,
and if they expect to become accomplished in the
arts and favorite habits of Mr. Clay and his sons,
it is high time they were practising with tho pis
tol and bowie knife.
Beside the free colored people now in the place,
who are estimated to number from three to five
hundred, there are quite a number of slaves here,
who attend upon their masters, their children, &.C
Night before last, a company of these strangely
disappeared, and have not yet been heard from.
They probably took passage in the underground
railroad. I have sought every opportunity to in
form such as are brought here, that they huvo
claim and right to their own souls and bodies, su
perior to that of any other being except their Ma
ker. A colored band have been here "discoursing
sweet music" to us several days, and it was sweet
music indeed. They have now gone to Williams
town to assist in the commencement exercises of
William and Mary's College, but are to return on
Saturday. The. only reason of their being employ
ed in preference to others is, because they are
more accomplished in the science of music than
any others who can be obtained. 'Poor creatures
could'nt take care of themselves if (hey were
free!'
Southern influence and Southern management
is seen here in a great variety of things. Last
Sabbath I attended meeting at the Methodist house.
Rev. Abel Stevens, editor of Ziou's Herald, from
Boston, preached in the morning, and the preach
er stationed here in the evening. No allusion was
made to the great sin of the nation, unless it was
in a very indifferent invitation to the Lord to 'do
away the evils of oppression,' which was contain
ed in the morning prayer. 'Tis pitiful to see how
some ministers who wish to be considered right on
tho subject by their abolition supporters, hobble
over it in their prayers. They seem to think their
brethren uncharitable if they question the genu
ineness of their abolitionism, when it is evident
that all the abolition work they do in preaching,
praying, editing, &c, they are driven up to by the
force of public opinion, and not from any hearty
gooil will of their own. The methodist society
here is rather small and feeble;- aud their preacher
informs me that they were persuaded to build
their expensive Chapel by the promises of South
ern gentlemen, that 'if they would build a good
house, they should not want means to pay for it.'
But, like the promises of gentlemen paupers gen
erally, (for such are slaveholders as a class) these
promises have never been redeemed, and of course
never will be. The consequence is, that the house
now has a debt on it of five thousand dollars, nnd
an agent is out Dogging tor it. I ins is more man
the house is worth, though it cost nine thousand
dollars. When I first camo to the place, before
my position in rcferenco to slavery was known,
I was invited to preach part of the day next Sab
bath. If the invitation is not withdrawn, and God
gives me strength, I shall certainly give the con
gregation my views of American slavery, in lan
guage that will not be misunderstood, if they will
stay to hear me through, anil if not, I will leave
my testimony for the benefit of the house.

THE ELECTIONS,
W c have received returns from only the follow
ing towns. Tho increase of the vote for the lib
erty party for Governor in these, since last year,
is nearly 1000. If those towns not heard from
have done as well, our whole vote in the State
will be between six and seven thousand. Last
year it was 3826. This we think is doing well,
considering the circumstances in which we have
been placed very well indeed. The whigs have
made a desperate effort. Their candidate, Hon
Win. Slade, was better calculated than any other
man they could have selected to draw away liber
erty votes. Indeed, there is but little of any doubt
that he was selected for this very purpose, and it
is possible that by the cry about annexation, Mr.
Slade's abolitionism, &.C., together with the de
crease of the democratic vote, he is elected by the
people, though that is yet quite uncertain. All'
the drift-wood in the State must have been carried
into the channel of whiggery by the floods of whig
literature with which it has been overflowed for
the last few months, in the form of coon songs,
stump speeches, hand-bills, 8tc.
Mr. Dillingham, the democratic candidate for'
Congress is undoubtedly defeated. Much the
largest part of our increase in this election is from
tho ranks of the sham democracy. In Lamoille
county, which was fhe strongest seat of that party
in the State, only six representatives are elected;"
tw o liberty men and four democrats. In this town 1
the democratic majority for. representative last
year was 142 this year -only 20. It seems as tho' '
the false and senseless cry that "the liberty party
are in league with the " locos" must now cease.
Those who have voted with us this year mav
be depended upon under any circumstances here
after. They have conscientiously adhered to
their principles through a tornado of excitement
and can never be moved.
But great as has been our victory, our friends
may look out for a far greater one in November.
The struggle then will not be between Hon. Wm.
Slade and Hon. Wm. R. Shafter, but between two
practical tyrants and the liberty-loving Birney
between the Texas and pistol candidate and an
honest, just man, who hates and repudiates all
these schemes and systems of iniquity.
