COMMUNICATIONS. For the Daily Frew. Abolitionists. THEIR PRINCIPLES IN REFERENCE TO SLAV ERY ANI) THE CONSTITUTION. Politicians and others, for the last twenty five or thirty years, have had a great deal to say of the reckless, unreasonable and uncon stitutional principles of the abolitionists. Al most as a matter of course they have not al ways ct^fined themselves to the truth on this subject, more than upon other matters which have been discussed under the influence of heated partisan feelings; nor has the truth al ways been applied to the right kind of per sons. If abolitionists feel that their principles have been misrepresented, and an undeserved odium brought upon them, they must remember that sucli is tlie common lot of those whose views on moral subjects are in advance of their gen eration, and especially is calculated to disturb the settled order of things. They may consid er, also, that the unprejudiced judgment of succeeding generations will lie likely to ac cept what is true, and reject only their errors. It is doubtful if a large portion of the present generation are not without any definite knowl edge of the principles advocated by the abo litionists of thirty years since, and up to the present time. Amid the smoke and confusion of conflict, the position of combatants is not always understood. There have beeu three distinct classes of ab olitionists. 1. That represented by W. L. Garrison, Wendell Phillips, <f-c. 2. Those represented by Gerrit Smith, and Wm. Goodell. 3. Those connected with tile old Liberty party, so called, with Mr. Birney for its first Presidential candidate. These all agreed that slavery, or the holding of men as chattels, was morally wrong,' as well as injurious to all the interests of the country; that consequently it was the duty of individual owners to emancipate; that slave States ought to abolioli slavery by so chang ing their laws that they should protect all men in their personal rights as men. But they have differed in regard to the con stitutional powers of the Federal government iu relation to it. Mr. Garrison and his followers have main tained, in common with pro-slavery politicians and jurists, that the Constitution was intended to sustain slavery, and have, on this ground, called it “a covenant with death, and agree ment with hell,” that it ought to lx- abolished iu order to abolish slavery. They refused to vote or hold office under it. For a time they were apparently as bitterly opposed to the vot ing Liberty party as they were to slavery itself. Mr. Garrison’s anti-Bible, anti-Church, and anti-Sabbatl) principles need not be consid ered in this connection, though they doubt less gave a pungency to his warfare on the Liberty party, who generally rejected his views on these subjects, and at the same time it gave pro-slavery religionists of the New Vork Ob server school, an opportunity, of which they were not slow to avail themselves, to charge infidelity on all abolitionists. The numbers who held with Mr. Garrison iu the matter ol voting were comparatively few. The party represented by Messrs. Smith audGoodell, and who claimed the name of Radical Abolitionists, held directly the reverse of the Garrison party in reference to the Constitution. They main tained that it is, and was iustended to be, an anti-slavery instrument; that it gave the Federal Government plenary authority to abolish slavery in every State by legislative en actment. As a political party, distinct from the Liberty party, they polled only a few thou sand votes in the whole country. THE LIBERTY PARTY Comprised the greater part of earnest abo litionists. They maintained that in spirit the Constitution is anti-slavery; that what were called the “compromises” of the Constitution were not intended to make the Federal gov ernment responsible for the existence of sla very, or commit it in any way to its support On the other hand, they admitted that it gave the Federal Government no authority to abol ish, or interfere with i*. in the States,that being • a right reserved to the people of the States But they maintained that the administratior of the government since about lsgo, had beei more and more in favor of slavery, that this action of the legislative, executive and judicia departments, and the treaty making power bad been prostituted to serve the interests o the slaveholding oligarchy, .and that all the was contrary to the spirit, and, often to the let ter of the Constitution;—and contrary to tlx intention of the fathers who ordained it. The; maintained that not only justice, but the spiri and intention of tbe Constitution detnandot that the Federal Government, should adininis ter it in the interests of liberty, whereon they ! hud the right to act all;—that in all places | where the Constitution gave Congress exclu sive jurisdiction slavery should be prohibited. They maintained that if the government had j been administered by men who sympathiz [ ed with the sentiments of its founders, the cx ! tension of slavery would have been nipped in j the bud, and the slave states long ago have 1 deemed it their interest to abolish it, as was expected by tile fathers who ordained the con stitution they would do. That there have been rash men among this class of abolitionists, and that they have some times made rash speeches, will not lie denied. But that, as a party, they have wished to break down the Constitution, or desired the govern | ment to take unconstitutional action, there is no evidence, unless it is unconstitutional to differ in opinion from such men as Judge Taney and James Buchanan, as to what the Constitution demands. Coming generations will be able to decide as to which party were the best friends to the constitution and their country. But the present generation is very much under the influence of those pro-slavery, religious demagogues, who have attributed Mr. Garrison's unli-biblc views to abolitionists as a body, and those political demagogues who have done the same thing in regard to his an ti-constitutional view's. He must have been gratified to see bis ene mies play ing into his hands with such zeal and ■ perseverance. J* “Suppress the Abolitionists.” This is the cry of some people at the present time, but it is an exceedingly absurd cry, and this is so well shown up in a late number of i Harper’s Weekly, that we copy therefrom as | follows. Says the writer: “hot us suppress the Abolitionists,” cries tile slack-wilted orator, “and the rebellion will end 1” Of course it will, you dear soul; and if all your fellow citizens had been of your calibre and kidney, there would have been no j rebellion at all. if Hampden and Ids friends cry out against ship-money,'’ England would quietly have submitted to the tyranny of the Stuarts. If Otis and Patrick Henry lut'd shout ed, "Hurrah for King George and the stamp act r’ there would have been no bloody Revo lution. If Mirabeau and the French people hud bellowed, "Hurrah for starvation: aristo crats forever!” all the trouble in France would have speedily ended. To be sure eve y right would have been annihilated, every liberty de stroyed. and a few rich and remorseless people | would have governed France; but there would j have been no difficulty, except moral rot and ' general national decay. "Let us supress the Abolitionists!" Rut suppose you begin at the begiuing. First sub due the common sense of the people of tiie country: and then you may subdue those who inlluence it. It is not what you call, with an | amusing persistence, Abolitionism, which caused tile war. but the opening the eyesol the | people so that they saw it. The people of this ; country know perfectly well that slavery is at j the bottom of this rebellion. Iftliere bad been j no slavery there would have been no war;just as there would have been no Abolitionism. The temperance movementspriugs from druuk eness: and when a drunken man tries to kill his wife,don’t you think the teetotalers are res j ponsible for it ? Slavery was trying to kill the country. It had almost succeeded. ‘Watch! watch!'shout ed the Abolitionists. Slavery, maddened that its crime was discovered, shot and stabbed right and left. “There! there!” cry the seusi . ble Wieklitfe and Company— “this conies of calling the watch! Why the devil can’t you I hold your tongues! Let us suppress these fellows that cry watch! watch! and all will be quiet again. Certainly: a dead dog or a dead nation are ] both perfectly quiet. A nation of freemen throttled, with its own consent, by a slave svs tem like ours, is the deadest and meanest of all dead dogs! What miai.i. be done with the Bi.acks. , The question, “ What shall be done with the blacks?” is beginning to answer itself. It is j reported from New Orleans that recently a | “ delegation” of slaves from the plantation of j a Mr. Mauusell White, one of the oldest and wealthiest planters in a river county, below N. Orleans, applied to Gen. Sltepley for advice, in I his character as Military Gov. of the State.— The correspondent of the New York Times says: “These men informed the General that they came lor freedom; they said their fellow serv ants ill other places were all leaving their mas ters, and that they wished also to improve their condition, but that it was not clear to their minds how was tile liest wav to do so.— Thev emphatically said, however, that tlicv ilnl not intend to laiior much, if they could help it, without remuneration, and they con cluded their request* and protests by asking that, if they remained peaceably at home, they might have fair wages secured to them for their services. Gen. Shepley treated the matter with great consideration, and alter conferring w ith Gen. Butler, permission was granted to these meu to make terms w ith their master, who consented to have a partner in the transaction, and these men have gone to work, not as slaaes, hut as hired men.” The I’besident among the Rebel Wounded.—While on Ids recent v'sit to Gen. McClellan’s army. President Lincoln visited some of the rebel wounded. The visit is tints described: “On entering tin* hospital, the sad scenes that Inllow battle met the eye. Mr. Lincoln, ■ alter looking around, remarked to the Conleil | crate wounded that it they had no objection he would he pleased to take them by the hand. The solemn obligations, said he, which w'c owe ; to our country and posterity, compel the ptos ! edition of lids war: and it follows that many j on both sides must become victims, and though they are our enemies through uncontrollable circumstances, lie bore them no malice, and could take them by the hand with as much sympathy and good tccling as if they were i brothers. After a short silence those of the Confederates who could walk came forward, and each of them silently shook hands with j the President. Mr. Lincoln and Gen. McClel lan went to the bedsides of those who were unable to rise and cheered them, saying that every care should In* bestowed upon them to ameliorate their sufferings. It was a touching : scone, and there was not a dry eye among the I wounded.” The letter which (Jen. Kearney wrote to a friend, last summer, from the Peninsula, has been published. Those w ho have been in I strumental in its production, are certainly i very injudicious friends of the lamented Gen ertil. It has lieou brought to the light for the purpose, it is alleged, of proving McClellen’s iiioompetencv. hut its wholesale attacks upon Sumner, Hooker, Porter. Keyes,Franklin, ajul indeed, upon all of his prominent brother offi cers. proves that it is but the hasty complaint of an impetuous iiiiin, laboring under some momentary depression of spirits, or fancied slight. Kearney probably had no intention of its ever meeting the public ga/e. as it is ad dressed to a female friend, and savors nothing of a calm criticism on the merits of those whom it discusses.—| Hartford Post. _ t'jf=“The officers in the army who were i “ going to resign,” if the President took any i steps in the direction of emancipation, have not yet Jurued up. On the contrary, it seems difficult to find those who w ithhold dieir ap : probation from the proclamation. It is hut justice to say that these threats were made, . not by the officers, but in the semi-secession 1 newspapers, with whom the wish was father to the thought. [Providence Journal. Naturally hard to tell the Truth. “Timothy Titcomb" has a keen scalpel, and he thus dissects men on the subject of truth telling:—I have known eminent men who had not the power to state a fact in its whole vol ume and outline, because, llrst, they could not comprehend it perfectly, and, second because their power of expression was limited. The lenses by which they apprehended their facts were not adjusted properly, so they saw every thing with a ldtir. Definite outline, clearly cut edges, exact apprehension of volume and weight, nice measurement of relations were matters outside of their observation and expe rience. They bad broad minds, but bungling; and their language was no better than their apprehensions—usually it was worse, because language is rarely as definite as apprehension. Men rarely do their work to suit them,because their tools are imperfect. There are men in all communities who are believed to be honest, yet whose word is never authority upon any subject. There is a flaw or a warp somewhere in I heir perceptions, which prevents them from receiving truthful impressions. Everything comes to them distorted, as natural objects are distorted by reaching the eye through wrinkled w indow glass. Some are aide to apprehend a fact and state it correctly, if it have no direct relation to themselves; but the moment their personality, or their personal interest, is in volved, the fact assumes false proportions and false colors. I know a physician whose patients are al ways alarmingly sick when lie is first called to them. As they usually get well, I am bound to believe that he is a good physician; but 1 am not bound to believe that they are all as sick at the lieginiiing as he supposes them to lie. The first violent symptoms operate upon his imagination and excite his fears, and his opinion as to the degree of danger attaching to the diseases of his patients is not worth half so much as that of any sensible old nurse. In fact, nobody thinks of taking it at all; and those who know him, and who hear his sad representations of the condition of his pa tients, show equal distrust of his word and faith in his skill, by taking it for granted that they are in a fair way to get well.” A Beautiful Custom,—Among the French settlers in Canada, on the lower St. Lawrence, is a very peculiar custom,—something like the golden marriage in Germany. “Whenever a venerable couple have trod the path of life together for fifty years, they sum mon to a banquet under their roof, from every quarter of the land, all their children and grand-children, in whose presence is re-per formed the ceremony that made them man ami w ife half a century before, when the fea-.t ing ami dancing, which continues for two or three nights together, bespeaks a most heart fed happiness as well as gratitude; and at the expiration of every live years from that period, until separated by death, the aged pair contin ue to repeat tin* ceremony of publicly pledging their vows of fidelity and truth.” Change of Sentiment. The New Orleans Delta contains the following information, which chimes with the reformation progress ing in North Carolina: “Twenty guerillas from the country above, on the right bank of the river, came down to the city last evening on the steamer Iberville, and voluntarily gave themselves into the hands of the authorities here. They had become disgusted witli the life of outlawry which they had been leading, were ragged and dirty, and poorly armed. An officer w ho came down up on the same boat w illi them, says they inform ed him that there were hundreds more that would make tlu ir escape the first opportunity, having, like themselves, Iwen made to realise that ‘the way ot the transgressor is hard.” Some of them expressed a desire to take the oath of allegiance and return to loyalty.” J.

The >e PLrs I’LTRA has been reached at la*t in TODD’S ! HAIR DYE. and the article has given entire satis faction to every person who has used it. It contains no injurious ingredients, and gives the hair a beauti ful rich brown or black color. Directions tor using —which are very simple—accompany each bottle. One superiority of Todd's Lux Solis Hair Dye over all others is, you do not have to cleanse the hair or wash it before or after using the dye, and there is but I one kind to be used, and that can be put on the same i as oil and water, without any trouble, uitliko all oth j er dyes that have two or three different kinds to be * applied every time used. This dye is peculiarly adapted for coloring ladies’ hair, because you do not have to wash out the dy e after putting it oil. Unlike j all other dyes, it will color loug hair, which other I dyes cannot do.
