[From the New York Herald.]
BOSTON, May 31, 1865.
T'he New England Anti-Slayery Con
vention met to-day.in the Melddeon, and
was 4ery fully attended. The IRev. J.
F. Sargepnt was choren president..
Wendell Phillips, as 'chairnan-of the
Bubiness Committee, reported c- reselu.
tion to the effect that it is the settled
opinion of the Convention that the re
construction of the rebel States, withoit
negro suffrage, is a practical stirrender
to the Confedetacy and will make the
anti-slavery proclamation of the late
Prosident, and even the expedied nen
ment of the constitution, utterly indf.
ficient for the freedom and protection of
the negro race.
-Mr; Phillips supported the, resolution
in a 'vigorous speech.' Ho contended
that slavery was abolishfed, and that the
reconstruction policy of the administra.
tion, as set fortli in the )roclamation for
the reconstriction' of- North Oarolin,
wsi-''n absolute surrender of'tbe helm of
the Unitj into the hanas of Alexander
,,. tep ens and his .coyorkrs. Re.
coistruction on that basis was a practi
cal fraud upon the North. Every lio
and every dollar they had spent had
been stolen from them. There was but
one vay in which the people could still
hold the hel of affairs, and that was a
declaration of'repudiation ofthe entireywar
debt. ' Such a party wokild have his
voice and vote until God called him
home. He would constantly oppose
every step of reconstruction that did not
place the negro upon an, absolute equali
.ty andilevel with tie white man. There
were but two paitids in the country
the sycophabts of Jeff. Davis and the
lovers of liberty.' Every man who sup.
ported the North Carolina proolamtatibn
was. pi Davis syo6ophant. Better, ihr
better, would it hav6 been for Grpt tso
ha.v surrendered to ]e:e than for Prosi-'
dent, Johnson tW have sufrendered to
