Whea the advocate of a human institution be

When they can find no warrant on earth, they

We were reminded of the poeitioni of some of
the defenders of slavery by reading Macaulay's
ecut of the doctrines of that grest stickler
for tha divine right of king, James th First
A greet change was tskiag place in the minds of
th people, who 'were beginning to free them
selves from the shackles of the dark ages. But
Jame claimed more than had been claimed by
those of his predecessors, who had tha firmest
bold of power. "It was gravely maintained
that the Supreme Being regarded hereditary
monarchy as opposed to other form of govern
meat, with peculiar favor; that th rule of sue
cession ia ths order of primogeniture waa a dl
vln institution, anterior to the Christian, and
even to the Mosaic dispensation; that no hamaa
power, not even that of the whole Legislature-
no length of adverse possession, though it ex
tended to tea centuries, could deprive the legiti
mate prince of bis rights; that hi authority was
necessarily always despotic; that the law by
which, in Eagland and in other countries, th
prerogative was limited, were to he regarded
merely as concessions which the sovereign ha
freely made asd might at his pleasurs resume
and, that any treaty into which a ling might
eater with his people was merely a declaration of
his ereeeal Intentions, and not a contract of
which the performance could be demanded."
The doctrine were advanced just before th
people beheaded a king for undertaking to carry
them oot.

In this vol they bare clearly misrepresents!

Louisville represented In that vote? Wo ar
proud to say that an 'overwhelming majority of
the people cf this city are uncompromisingly
1 it favor of ths extinction of negro slavery and
all other forma and shapes of slavery. Aad
unless rosny of the most audacious and intelli
gent wen of the State ar very much mistaken,
there ar a large number of countie iu whicb
public sentiment is decidedly in faVor of eman
cipation. The resolution Is, we have no doubt,
a calumny on tbe common sense and philan
thropy of Kentucky, and we call upon the
people to come forth in their ttrenglb and re
pudiate it. We blush to add tint wo have been
credibly informed that many of th member
who voted for this disgraceful resolution havs
frequently announced themselvea unreservedly
in favor of emancipation in Home "form or
shape," aad yet they faltered and voted In favor
of a resolution that misrepresents their own
opinions as well as tb opinion of those who
snt them there.
Friend of emancipation, the time for action
ha now come! It now devolve on you to
wipe from the fame of our Stale th foul blot
which the member of the House of Itepreseu
tative have placed upon it. It is now your
acred daty to com forth and exhibit your
strength. If tb vote on Mr. Dohoney'ii reso
lution represents th public sentiment of Ken
tucky, let it be known; but if it does not, then
some step are indispsnsable to disprov It.
Delay no longer to act with vigor and direct
nee. Follow the glorious example of Louis
ville. The opponent of slavery in this citv
have held ne large meeting already, and on
Monday nij;ht next, they will hold another
meeting which will doubtless be on of the
most iipoiajr ia number anl respectability
verheld in the State. They will then deny
that the retmUUon adopted at Frankfort on
Monday last reprenents them, in a tone aad
with ca cmphsftia not likely to be misunderstood
by those wbe, on this subjoct, misrepresent oar
city in the Legislature.. Be active, he vigilant,
friends of emancipation. Meet together ia every
county in the Stat and declare your will. Do
not let the perpetual itits impoee fetters and chains
oa your hearts and tongues, but, In the true spirit
of freemen, meet and express your views. This
yoa owe to yoursel re and to the great an J good
cause which has won your ju.lgmnnt and sym
pathy. You must act at onrejand with firm
nees. Do not delay to declare that the Legisla
ture has misrepresented Jyou, and let the world
know that Kentucky is not tbe paradise of
the advocaUs of alavery and slaves.
The pro-lavery men ar growing bold
throughout th State. We are glad to see them
active. Something wa needed to csll oat the

the Legislators fail to hav the desired effect o

mancipation is not to be "agitoted" this year.
Tbia is the very profound policy resolved en by
th pro-slsvery men, and they are chackling

I a conclusion, we will stale that wa are aware
that many of lbs member who voted for Mr.
Dohoney's wretched resolution, lid not mean
thereby to declare themselves to be la favor of
perpetuating alavery. J3ut by voting for it they
hav seemingly repudiated th opinions of th
wisest and beat men this country has ever pro
ducedthe opinions of such men as Washing'
ton, Jefferson, Henry, Madison, Clsy,and others
who ar looked up to with reverence by men
of all sections. Wa know that a mijority of
them profess to be opposed to perpetuating the
arse of slavery, but th resolution they have
voted for expresses entire oppositio.il to emanci
pation. We have no doubt that many of them
will live to repent this lll-Umed act.. It u a
great blander, and that, It Talleyrand li to b

Such is ths testimony of ths people themselves
in behalf of Emancipation, a testimony clear,
expressive aad strong.' So far from deeming
agitation "impolitic and imprudent." agitation
Is the very th In j deiired. Discussion, full, free
and thorongh, thejT desire to have, and they mean

From letters which come to ns from various
parts of tbe Stale, nd from men whose cbarac
tors and position gitemighl to their words, we
have no doubt that the repressatativ of other
sections have failed in ripresentin theaenti
menu of their coastllneM? signally a tha
representative from Loatovill.
But ws hava other facts to pnt. If the
people of Keatucky ar so uttertT opposed to
the disuutsion af th subject of Fancipatioa,
why are tot the newspapers untt Say yea
that aome of them, and influential papers, ,
are silent? Tru, but it la very well known
that fear of political effect, Injury to their

lessly open to lb discussion, and the number

anything rather than fear of agitation.
Let th Danville Tribune, tbe Georgetown
Herald, the Shelby News, the Maysville Eagle,
testify whether their reader unanimously con
cur in the opinion that "agitation Is impradeat
and impolitic"
We migh't allude to other papers, but there
are two, which from the honorable Independence
manifested npon the subject of Emancipation
and th ability with which th subject is discus
sed, are entitled to especial respect and confi
dence. We refer to the Louisville Courier, and
the West Kentuckiaa, published at Paducah.
Wa find in the Courier of th 5th and 6th,
the following article which we commend to the
careful consideration of our representatives:
Kraaaclpatloa la Kestaray.
An idea has been started in Frankfort, by mem
bers of the Legislature, that Emancipation in Ken
tucky Is dead. When it died, and where and by
whom it was killed, are matters upon which we
have been nnable to get any in&rmatiou whatever.
Yet these are interesting and essential points in
veritable matter. We cannot ajwert tbe fact, bm
we bave our fears, thatihe mcaabera of the Legis
lature have taken np for themselvea the idea that
adorned the diadem of the modest and graceful
Louis the fourteenth, of France that tAey are the
State, and that because they in their wisdom wish
Emancipation to be killed therefore, his killed.
But softly gentlemen you know but little of the
spirit and temper of the people or Kentucky, if
you imagine you can thu stifle inquiry, and thus
put an end to a great, a living principle. Emanci
pation in Kentucky ia neither dead, nor m it likely
to die. A principle that wa honored, cherished,

matter of right, justice and trath is not likely to
die. In every encounter with the dsik and gloomy
error that is endeavoring to overshadow it, it will
renew it strength, and go forth to battle with ne
vigor. You might a well attempt to chain the
winds, or to allay the surge of the ocean by I
gislative desire, as to attempt to chain down th
free thoughts of the people of Kentucky.
The slave power in Kentucky is now engaged
striking a blow at Uie prosperity of tbe Slate from
which it never can recover, if success attends tl
scheme. Weallude to the attempt to repeal the law
of 1833 on the importation of slaves into the Slat
When Uiat law is repealed, Kentucky will have at
tained a pre-eminence among the elsve Sute of
the Union she can point to her laws then, and
boast, il she has no shame, no sense of her wrong,
that she is the only slave territory in the Union
where the slave dealer or trader has the' freedom of
the State. There is not a slave Sute in tbe Union
that has not a law similar to the Kentucay law of
1833, and if we repeal it, Kentucky may take her
station alongside of the noble commerce Hint
adorns the Western coast ,of Africa; she will be
come the alnvo mart of the Union, and negro tra
ders will be Ui merchant pnnsca of the Slate.
In tha grent debate in the Kentucky Senate on
tbe South Carolina Railroad scheme, Mr. Uutliri
took occasion to depreca: the attempt to inak
Kentucky the frontier State of a slsv territory
but the slave power is now attempting not only to
make her tbe frontier of tho alave confederation
but the rampart of that power. And is it to be sup
posed that the people of Kentacky will tamely
aubmit to such a state of things as this? Those
who think mi will awaken some dsy from a teni
Die delusion.
Emancipation is not dead in Kentucky, nor is il
likely to die. Such principle aa it has never die,
nor can they be killed. Nor do ita enemie b

We dare tbe enemies of Emancipation to pntthe

may vote on mat question alone. They know better
than to trust themselvea thus to th voice of Die
people. They prefer biaggartism, noise, confti
ion, and proclamation of tbe death of what they
dare not meet In an open encounter. Thi is their
wmdom.snd, peihaps, their best policy.

of renovation is alive and in rigor, and must go

in favor of Emancipating Kentucky from the incu
bus that has weighed her down for many years.
and from tha awful dangers that threaten her more
strongly now than lhiy did when Mr. Guthrie so
clearly and triumphantly pointed them out in the
debate to which we hav referred.

We should lik to know what particular object
those gentlemen, who are fignrinfl so much against
LraancipaUoa,1bink tbe people of Kentucky had
in voting in favor of tb Convention. What great
evil did tha people feel pressing upon them to re
quire the immeus vote of 101 .SB in favor of re
modeling the Constitution. The Magistracy has
never been lei tan an oppression, the mode of An
notating Sheriff t not very disastrous to the peo
ple, nor have tbe Clerkships ever been felt as a scv
rious oppression. Whet great predominant idea
was before the public mind, if it was not the prin
ciple of Emancipation? Scarcely a solitary friend
of the perpetuitticaof alavery can b found among
the 101,828 votes ta favor of a Convention, and
now a little knot or politician la Frankfort have

ia a large mass of th peop?e who are not wedded

goes, it carries decision la Its hands. The politi
cnl parties iu Kentucky will find themselves al an
awful discount, if they are not eareful, npon this
very question. Upon the grest question of the
perpetuation of slavery by a constitutional piovis
ison, or for gradual emancipation, there cau be,
and should be no luioluke s.s lo Die seutiiiientu of
Kentucky. .All attempt to hinder diacuwtiou, to

the attempt. Tha people of Kentucky know their
rights, and will maintain them. We should feel
ourself unworthy of th name of Kentuckian if
we held a sentiment that we were afraid to avow
or maintain.
Let not the friend cf alavery imagine for a mo
ment that they can strangle discussion the game
is up, and will be pursued.
The West Kentuckiaa thus speaks in regard
to the course or "Virginia on th Wilmot Pro
viso and Disunion:"
"Sh begins with becoming solemnity: 'The

the Constitution to let them alone. But break

Th alave will learn this, and where a desire of
liberty now impels hundreds to make their long
and difficult way to Canada, it will then indue
thousand to make the short and easy leap of
her northern frontier. Besides, the people of
those States, no longer restrained by what she
la pleased lo call tha 'compact' between the
State, would then yield lo their natural linpul
to invite tier negroes to their liberty. And
snouui that embroil her in a war with thos
Herculean powers, it might be set down as one
of "tha gravest consequeuce," which the pre

W hav received the first number of this
journal, th publication of which bait been
commenced in Cincinnati. It haa a more mis
cellaneous character than usually belong to
reviews; but we believ this feature will aot de
tract from the interest of lli work. Th Review
will be devoted to the discussion of all tha great
questions that claim the attention of our age.
Ilia conductors do not lay claim to Infallibility,
and they are willing to have both sides heard on
very question. This is to be a Jree journal.
Wa hava been much interested in th article
a our friend, W.D. Gallagher. Th asthorof
the article ia on who stand high in Western
Literature, and who will take a still higher stand
if bis modty doe not prevent After having
given, in a moat beautiful style, som account
of Mr. Gallagher' life, and of th literary en
terprises in which he haa been engaged, th wri
ter proceeds to quote some of the poem of
Mr. G. Th three distinctly marked period of
his poetical life, are pointed out; in th first of
which th soul of the poet was looking at tha
Beautiful in the occurrence of (if; ia th
second, tha charms of External Nature claimed
his love; la th third period, th soul of tha
poet ha been filled with sympathy for Human
ity, and his writing hav aasamed a loftier
tone. We cannot refrain from quoting a poem
whose chief excellence consist in th nob!
sentiment It expresses. It ha little of th
poetical Imagery which appear la other of hi
poems. Th poet seems to be too earnest to
use any but the most direct language. An im
age might have diverted the mind from the lofty
foaling with which th poet wished to inspire
it. Tb poem I familiar to most of our read
ers; bat we never read It without feeling our
selves nerved to encounter whatever may b
bef r us. The feelings which th poet seeks
to arouse are much needed at this tim.
