Hence when we desire to send 4 appeals" to the south, all that is necessary is, to insert them in - some newspaper that espouses our principles, pay for as many thousand copies as we think proper, and order them to be mailed according to our instructions. Such, sir, is the worthless protection purchased for the south, by the most un blushing and dangerous usurpation of which any public officer has been guilty since the organization of our federal gov ernment. Were the Senate, in reference to your acknowledged responsibility for the conduct of your subordinates to resolve. cessions are daily made to tne multitude who embrace our principles. And can you think it possible, sir, that thise citi zens are deliberately plotting murder, and furnishing us with funds to send publica tions to the scuth " intended to instigate the slaves to insurrection ? " Is there any thing in the character and manners of the free states, to warrant the imputation on their citizens of such enormous wicked ness? Have you ever heard, sir, of whole communities in these states, subjectingob noxious individuals to rrock trial, and then in contempt of law, humanity and reli gion, deliberately murdering them? You have seen in the public journals, great re wards offered for the perpetration of hor rible crimes. We appeal to your candor and ask, were those rewards offered by abolitionists, or by men whose charges against abolitionists, you have condescend ed to sanction and disseminate ? And what, sir, is the character of those w hem you hav? in your message held up to the execration' of the civi ized world? Their enemies being judges, they are re ligious fanatics. And whatare the haunts ot these plotters of murder? The pulpit, the bench, the bar, the proftssors chair, the hall of legislation, the meeting for prayer, the temple of the Most High. But strange and monstrous as is this coir spiracy, still you believe in its existence, and call on Congress to counteract it, Be persuaded, sir, the moral sense of the community is abundantly sufficient to ren der this conspiracy utterly impotent, the moment its machinations are exposed. Only PROVE the assertions and insinu ations in your message, and you dissolve in an instant every Anti-Slavery Society in our land. Think not, sir, that we shal . interpose any obstacle to an inquiry into our conduct. We invite, nay, sir, we en treat the appointment by Congress of a committee of investigation, to visit the An-ti-S!aveiy Office in New York. Thev shall be put in possession of copies of all the pub icatiens that have issued from our tress. Our whole conespoudence shall be submitted to their inspection ; our ac counts of receipts and expenJi.ures shall be spread before them, and we ourselves will chceriUily answer under oath what ever intcfTogatoritS they may put us re lating to the charges you have advanced. Should such a commute e be denied, and should the law you propose, stigmatizing us as felcns, be passed without inquiry in to the truth of your accusation and with out allowing us a hearing, then shall we make the language of your protest our own, and declare that, If such proceed ings shall be approved and sustained by an intelligent people, then will the great contest with arbitrary power which had established in statutes, in bills of rights, in sacred charters, and in constitutions of government, the right of every citizen to a notice before trial, to a hearing before condemnation, and to an impartial tribunal for deciding on the charge, have been made in VAIN." Before we conclude', permit us, sir, to offer you the follow ing assurances. Our principles, our objects, and our measures, are wholly uncontaminated by considerations of party policy. Whatev er may be our respective opinions as citi zens, of men and measures, as abolition ists we have expressed no political prefer ences, and are pursuing no party ends. From neither of the gentlemen nominated to succeed you, have we anything to hope or fear ; and to neither of thtm do we in tend, as abolitionists, to affoid any aid or influence. This declaration will, it is hoped, satisfy the partizans of th rival candidate s, that it is not necv ssary for them to assail our rights, by way of convincing the south that they do not possess our fa vor. We have addressed you, sir, on this oc casion, with republican plainness, and Christian sincerity; but with no desire to derogate from the respect that is due to you, or wantonly to give you pain. To repel your charges, and to disabuse the public, was a duty we owed to ourselves, to our children, and above all, to the great and holy cause in which we are engaged. That cause we believe is approved by our Maker; and while we retain this belief, it is our intention, trusting to His direction and protection, to persevere in our endeav ors to impress upon the minds and hearts of our countrymen the sinfulness of claim ing property in human beings, and the duty and wisdom of immediately relin quishing it. When convinced that our endeavors are wrong, we shall abandon them, but such conviction must be produced by oth,- Ooods as low, or lower than any mer chant in the State.

Fessenden, assisted by various A?ri cultural writers, and by the observations of many of the best practical Cultivators in the United States. The New-England Farmer is printed with a new type on good paper in a quarto torm, paged, making a volume of 416 pages ennuallvl to which a title page and index are fur nished gratis. This Journal has been published 13 years, during which time unremitted exer tions have been made to make it accep;a ble and useful to the farmer and gardener. At the end of each year the Numbers can be bound, and constitute a valtnbV work, being worth their subscription price as a book of reference. A weekly report of tho sales at Brigh ton, the state of the markets, crops, &c and occasional drawings of Agricultural Implements, &c. are given in this Jour nal. The N.

The publishers have been induced, in consequence of the very liberal patronage bestowed upon this work, to add to it four teen pages of new music, in addition to the former supplement, without increase of price. The work now contains 250 psalm tunes, giving a large variety, adapted to every metre of sacred poetry found in books used in any of our churches. It also contains 80 anthems and select pieces, including the compositions of more than one hundred different authors. The new plan adopted for this work of placing the full harmony on the Bass and Treble staff, in small notes, has been high ly commended, and will readily be ac knowledged of important advantage to all those who play the organ and piano forte.
