upon the position he ocouptod before the
Court, as one of that unfortunate race
which the Supremo Court of the United ,
Stales has solemnly adjudged to have
"no rights that while men are bound
to respect," he concludes at follows :
Hut in view of all the facts, I say, that,
if ever again a roan is seized near me,
and U about to be carried touthward as a
slave before any legal investigation has
been had, I shall hold it to be my duty
as I held it that day, lo secure for him if
possible legal inquiry into the character
of the claim by which he it held. And 1
go farther; 1 say that if it it adjudged ille
iral to procure even such an investigation,
then we are thrown back upon the last
defences of our rights which cannot be ta
ken from ue, and which Uod gave us
that we need not be slaves. I ask your
Honor, while I sar this, te place yourself
in my situation, tnd you will tay with
me that if your children had been seized by
men who claimed them as fugitives, and
the law of the land forbade you to ak
anv investigation, and precluded the

of

possibility of any legal protection or re

you would not only demand the protection
ol the law, liul you wouia can in youi
neighbors and your friends, and woultl ask
them to say with you, that these your
friends could not be taken into slavery.
And now I thank you for this leniency,
this indulgence, in giving a man unjustly
condemned, by a tribunal before which
he is declared to have no rights, the privi
lege of speaking in his own behalf. I
now that it will do nothing towara miti
gating your sentence, but it is a privilege
to be allowed to speak, ana I liiann you
for it. I shall submit to the penally, be
what it mav. But I stand up here le

to help me, as I would call upon you

basis under their new charter, propose to
hold a Sto".k nnd Sale exhibition, on the
t4ih of the present month. The plan of
this fair is designed, we believe, to be
similar lo that so long and salislac'oi ily
practiced in the old world in England,
Wales, and some parts of Germany and
it is thought with due encouragement and
patronage can be made a valuable aid lo
all the stock interests ot the couniry
The stock will not be limited to horses
alone, but embrace every variety where
improvement will benefit the farmers.
As there will be no charge whatever, ex
cept lor slock ottered lor sale, 11 wouiu
seem that an extra inducement is offered
for a full retiresentation of the best slock
in this region. Horses will be permitted
to be shown in competition with eacli
other, under the well known rules of the
association. As this society is no jockey
concern in any way, it is worthy of the
attention and support of all good farmers,
and the complete success of their first (air
last fall, is a sufficient guarantee that
sensible exertion will be spaied to innke
this new feature of the most praclical
value possible. Ravenna Z'emocrut.
