Still lower down in the 'strata of her
thoughts was this, Anna Willard has just
returned from Europe a rich heiiess.
George Willard lias been quite attentive
to Julia this winter, and especially re
quested that Blie would call upon his sis
ter who was on a visit to her uncle. She
did not like to go and call upon those
styli-h people in that old v'n;tonn-. The
cape was exactly the thing to make her
feel comfortable, and as good a anybody.
If bhe could only think it right to keep ul
She pondered the matter all day. She
had no mother, poor girl, or pet-haps a fur

importance. Several of her young friends

realizing tier hope- lo confide them to her

was to reply,

talking to father about it this morning."

She met Catherine Perry who ex
claimed, "What a plendid cape! Thai to
be sure is worth wailing for. But where
are your cuffs and mull? Nobody wears
a cape alone."
Julia had thought of that, for her hands
and arms felt the loss of their usual pro
tectors, which were not deemeil worthy
companions of the new magnificence.
On her way home he went into a shop
nnl it seemed to her that she was treaied
with more attention than usual. After
making most of her purchases she passed
lo another part of the establishment and
sat down, waiting with an air of patient
condescension, while a young woman be
hind the counter received and returned lite
cordial greeting of a plainly dressed lady
in tleep mourning. 1 Ins haughty air was
not natural ,to Julia. At another, lime il
would have given tier real pleasure to wit
ness such a meeting. But io-day she was
ihe slave of the cape, and here were two
persons who did not acknowledge its pre
eminent claims. She rose disdainfully to
" Pardon me," said the shop-woman,
"I will attend to you at once."
"No matter," said Julia coldly. "I
am in haste and will not interrupt you."
This whs said in an air of superiority
she thought eminently suited l lie wearer of
a sable cape.
She returned home feeling a good deal
exalted in the scale of being.
The next day she put on her handsom
est dress and the beloved cape which kept
both body and spirit so comfortable, and
paid her visit lo Miss Willard. She was
shown into a parlor, whose costly elegance
she painfully contrasted with her own sim
ple and more tasteful home. "It is well
that I have this cape!" 6he thought.
"How should I have felt, to have come
here in my old viciorine."
Presently a lady in black entered and
approached ' her. To her great surprise

a certain way, because our ni rj-' Inns do,

perhaps on the oilier extreme; bu in so
doing, they show at least a sulf-respect

not greatly mistaken, matters of the fiiost

obligres the freemen of the North lo sus
tain the hideous and revolting crimes con

system , of Ncl.o Slavery, either by acting
in the capacity ot blood-hounds lo chase

from that noblest impulse of the human
heart, a love of liberty, is fleeing from a
land of chains and slavery, or by pa) ing
tin? slave market pi ice for his soul and
body his blood and bones to some pre
tended owner of the snme, il is high time
that they be informed of the fact, in order
that they whose hatted of slavery is only
commensurate with their love of freedom,
may have "time and opportunity" to pre
pare for the unutterable self-degradation
involved in sustaining a system absolutely
nl war w;th every moral, social, religious
and poluical principle which they believe
or profess. On the other hand, however,
if the slave hunting doctrines of the slave
holding Democracy an- n the doctrines
of that Constitution which itself asserts
that it was "ordained" to "establish jus
tice" and secure the "blessings of liberty"
to the people of the United Slates, then
tkn tact should be known, and well known
to the people, that they may set the seal
of condemnation upon a party which has
thu3 att mpted to subvert the natitnal or
ganic law, and prostitute the powers of our
National Government to the support of
the nefarious institution of slavery. One
or the oilier of the position;; indicated must
he taken in regard to this question, by the
people of this country; an 1 recent events
seem to show that ihe time is not far dis
tant, when the freemen of the nation must
vindicate the Constitution from the false
and despotic asatim ptions of t he pi o-slavery
Democcracy, or b-.sely permit it to crum
ble and fall, surrounded with the ruins of
a once boasted American freedom.. Thanks
to an unwavering "faith in the people,"
webelkve they will yet vindicate their
capacity for self-government, by hurling
from power the pro-slavery lime-serving
haders of the sham Democracy, and sub
stituting in their place men with the Jef
ferson ian qitalitietitious of "hon.'Siy" and
Ve assume, in the heading of our arti

ing lo force the people ot ihe free States
to turn out as slave-catchers, or to pay for
the escaped slave, out of the hard earnings
of their noble system of free labor. We

Such is ihe position of the Democratic
party in regard tQthis wicked and uncon
stitutional law. Never before was it
avowed that any law which Congiess
could mid;?, could not be unmade by tho
same power. Never before did any party
charge il as a breach of the Constitution,
not to believe in lli3 eternal necessity of
any particular act of our uauoilllfegisla
luie. For upward of sixty years wS had
been making and unmaking laws- 6f" all
kinds. Tho people had become accus
tomed to think themselves competent, to
enact and repeal laws as policy or princi
ple might dictate. They had supposed
1 iicmsch us capable of progress and im
provement, ami had been in the habit of
changing and adapting their laws to suit,
their ever-varying circumstances. But
hi and beholiil In the year of our Lord,
one thousand eight hundred and fifty, the
Democratic party, by usurped power, suc
ceeded in fastening upon an unwilling
people, under various false pietetuce, an
odious and unconstitutional law, which
disgrncis lib in the eyes of all civilized
nations, and which we cannot repeal with
"fidelity" to the " Constitution of the
United Shues!" This posh ion, be it re
1111 tube led, is deliberately taken in two
national conventions, and is now the plat
form doctrine of the party. Will the peo
ple sustain it, or will they indignantly
sweep from power the slave-holding,
dough-laces who maintain ii? We be
lieve they will do tho latter. "My faith
is in '.hi; people" in their love of truth
and light. S.
