work, he gave them ts undermand very
clearly. that hie had n svnmpathies with
their cause, and therefuro declined tihe
honor which they hal confr:rrel uiptn him.
They, then, demounced him witt severity.
And his conduet sinice has not conciliated
them, for he wields the extensive influence.
which he possesses, in itmpoumttg a salutary
check upmon their mischievous platis. and
unhallowed a-sociations. When the Pro

the prominent Abolitionists of Eniglnd
stood aloof Irot him.or received him cold
ly. Mr. Stirge, the Aloulitinitsmt of fatous

slavery is wron;, mid he is thus an Anti
slavery man, but not an Aboliionist. He
reaches his point. not lay hard words and
aibusive epithets. but by a course of rea
soning on general priuciples, such as are
recognised in the Declaration of ladepen
dence and the Bible; as for example: "All
men are born free and equal." - Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." " Do
unto all men a you would they should do
unIt you." lIt seems. that our govern
rnent recogniz's the same general princi
pies in the laws enacted to repressthe Afri
can slave trade. These laws consider that
trade as piracy, punish those rho engage
i it. if taken, as pirates. and liberate the
slaves. Whilst in accordance with the
priniciples tl' these laws, 'the Professor
:hinaks that slavery is opposed to the spirit
oif the Bible and the genius of our govern
ment ; yet considering our system of ala
very as siln aied by the laws, he no where
d-nounces the slave holder as a thief. lie
does not urge the emancipation of the slave
rega dless of consequences. He iscoua
tenatices disobedience on the part of the
slave, and insists on the high motives,.
which the Gospel enforces. to seenre his
quiet submission and faithful regards in the
,.ervice of the master. And in spport of
tiec view% he wielis his great in8anence
agnin the AboliionitA.
Atter closing he argument. by which ho
endeavoirs to show that the system of sla
very is wrong, and should be abandoned,
the Professor adds, "But it may be said,
immediate abolition would be the greatest
possible injury to the slaves themselves.
They are riot competent to self govern
ment. This is a question of fact, which
it is not in the province of moral philoso
phy to decide. It very likely may be on.
So far as I know, the facts are not su.
ciently known to warrant a full opinion on
the subject." lie then points out the man
ner in which he thinks the preparation for
their ul-inate liberation should be made.
