Us patient; pood readers, and allow the
editor to attend the Convention this week,
especially as it is a privilege which lie has
........ tr .u i ,
nem jet enjoyed. K ihe in-idc matter and (
arrangement should not be all that it might j
be, you will bear with it for once. If it
should happen lo be more and hotter than
usual, why give credit to the printer. I
will do what I ran before leaving home.
Lyceum axd Club di.jiates, if managed
right principles, are a source of intellect
ual and moral improvement. But ihere is
n radical error in the principles on which
they arc loo generally conducted, which
leads to to a contention lor victory, rather
than an enquiry for truth, to dial there is
more lost to the heart tlrau there is gained
to the head. 1 refer to the practice of taking
up on either side of a question, without
regard to convictions of truth, or the admo
nitions of conscience. He who allows him
self to engage in the support of what he
knows to be untruth and unrighteousness
weakens his own conscience, and does vio
lence to his own moral and religious nature.
He treads upon forbidden ground. There
are questions enough on which intellectual
and honest men may. and do, conscientious
ly disagree, to furntMi abundant materials to
practice upon. But if it should be desirable
at any time, end under any circumstance?,
to discuss any great moral or religious sub
ject, concerning which honest minds cannot
be found in the club or society who disa
gree, then, in the name of truth, morality,
aod religion, do not let honest minds jro to
doing the devil's work ot defending and
propagating error and sin. If satan ha no
satellites among you, to do his work of de
traction, let it go undone, ancJ count noth
ing lost. There is a better way of improv
ing the" hea J, than to do it at the expense of
the heart. The lovers of truth and holiness
will find sufficient intellectual exercise in
meeting and repelling ai;in' forces, with
out going over and doing the treasonable
and suicidal work of assisting the enemy
of all righteousness.
A Scn9CRiBcn ron Life. A much valued
brother, whose hand 1 have not yet had the
pleasure to gratp, or whose face to sec,

" Brother Murray : I enclose five dolhr.
This, by the way, is in advance J You

Send the back numbers of the present vol

Great Antl-Slavry Convention
The annual meeting of the New- oik
State Anti-Slavery Socie:y held in this city
on Wednesday, Thursday and Fnd ty of

TI,E LAROest and most important
dklibkrativeconventions i:kr hf.ld

at least, a thousand. The roll of regular

(which is not completed, while we are

Kesolved, That we regard the scheme

with the disgust, indignation and abhor-Tn-e,
with which we feel impelled lo
look upon its natural parent American
slavery.
Resolved, That we claim for our color
ed brethren all the privileges, civil and
social literary and religious, to which.

nnd moral worth -vould entitle them ; and
that we look upon those social circles, and

this claim, with lively complacence and
warm app-obation.
R-solved, That whoever would under
pin 1 the doctrines and designs of the A
merican Anti Slavery Society, must study
its Constitution in the light of its Declara
tion of Sentiments.
Resolved, That, in the opinion of this
Convention, it beco-nes abolitionists, eve-
rvwhere, and at all times but
more espe
cially at the present eventful crisis, to be
exceedingly cautious how they listen to
the suggestion of these advis-rs who ask
us to molify our language nnd measures,
and who dissent from our fundamental doc
trine, that all shiveholding is sin.
R -solved, That the mere intention of
slawholding. constitutes the peculiar a
trocity which, by the general consent of
mankind, has branded the slavetrade and
kidnapping as mansiealing.

Anti-Slavery Convention at Wor
cester. The Massachusetts Anti-Slavery
Society held a quarterly meeting at
Worcester, on Wednesday, Sept. 27th.
The President of the Society, Francis
Jackson, Esq. in the chair. About 50
members were in attendance, a large pro
portion of them belonging to the bone
and muscle" of '.his ancient common
wealth, with a due representa'ion of min
isters. &c. of all the Christian sects.
It is known to all the world, by the as
siduity of the anti-abolition press, if in no
other way, that nn unhappy collision had
arisen in the abolition ranksof Massachu
setts, from which m.iny apprehended dis
aster to our cause. The first indication
and evidence of the general spi it of Mas
sachusetts abolitionism, was the adoption
of a resolution, that all persons present,
who hel I to immediate emancipation with
out expatriation, should be invited to de
liberate and act with the Convention.
This was evidence enough, that there was
no par.y here. Not a man desired other
credentials for the adjudication of what
ever question might come up. The feel
ing of all hearts was strong, thai our ques
tion should be d- bated nnd decider by ab
olitionists as such. Some may apprehend
incon venit nee or inequality from the gen
eral adopiio ; of such a rule, in a Conven
tion, wbijh is understood to be a delegat
ed body. Without pretending to decide
that point, we only say, that its ad lotion
in this instaiue, was a most noble expres
sion of mutual :onfiden:e in the integrity
and intelligence of abolitionists. And the
result has not belied the promise.
The subject of the Clerical Protest was
introduced on Thursday morning, at the
earnest instance of a friend of the protest
ers, who was heard at full length in regard
to the grievances complained of. But lit
tle was Slid in reply, and the resolution,
approving the doings of the Board of Man
agers, and exhorting the auxiliary socie
ties and all parties to let the subject rest,
was adop'ed with hardly a dissenting
voice. Thus has a collision, which occa
sioned much exultation among our oppo
nents, been quietly and judiciously dis
posed of, by the good sense and kind feel
ings of the people. The fears that some
entertained for the ark of liberty may be
allayed. The proceedings at Worcester,
together with those at Utica, mentioned in
another column, are evidence, that the
principles of Abolitionism have a deep
foundation in 'he hearts of the people, that
it is not an affair of men or of leaders, but
of truth and human we! ft re. The tree of
liberty stands stronger for '.he rocking of
the storm. We have lost not a man, arid
those who have been waiting in the ex
pectation that the Anti-Slavery Society
would co::ie dotrn, to the plains of One,
have got " O, no" for thir answer. Ab
olitionism i3 "one and indivisible."
Thanks to the Ijord, for all his mercies.

ALcAANPEit CAMPBELL OF LSeTHANY. I
W e have j jst heard, from a gentleman re
siding in Ohio, that Mr. Campbell, on a
recent occasion, at Warren, the Couniy
seat of Trumbull County, Ohio, advocated
in a oiscourse, of from tuo to three hours
leugm, tne principles ot immediate, uncon-(
uiuonai emancipation. We rejoice at this ;
believing, that this gentleman has the
head clearly to perceive, the heart warm- 1
- i
words or writing, "thru the owners of
si tves have no property in the same, or
advocate or adci-e the, abolition of slave
ry''' punishable by a fine of $2000, and
three years imprisonment. Mr. Camp
bell, we b.dieve, has never yet abstained
through fear of men, from preaching or
publishing whatever he thought rijht.
We shall probably soon learn whether he
publishes the same gospel in Brooke Coun
ty, Va., that he does in Trumbull County,
Ohio. That the effect will be glorious,
we have no doubt. Virginia has long
been preparing to receive anti-slavery doc
trines, and waiting for her own ministers
to teach the p'ain will of God on the sub
ject of slavery. It will be a high honor
to Mr. Campbell, to thrust the fiist sickle
into the unreaped field. Emancipator.

Indian Council. Signing the Tret
ty. Yesterday, after a long talk by the
Indian deputation at Dr. Laurie's Church,
the treaty entered into letween the Hon.
Secretary of War, on the part of the Unit
ed States, and Sioux deputation, was sign
ed by the contracting parties, in the pres
ence of a very large company of ladies
and gentlemen. The terms of the treaty,
which we may hereafter publish, are not
materially variant from those proposed by
the Government, of which we published
an accurate statement on Thursday last.
Severul gentlemen were on the platform
during the eeremcny of signing the treaty,

'Fire in rut; Mountains.
We
are informed by a gentleman woo ame
passenger iu the stage from BratiUboro'
on Tuesday, th.tt the fire was then raging
to a frightful and destructive extent thro'
the section of country between the Green
Mountains and the Connecticut River.
Thousands of acres of timbered land have
already been burnt over, and it is said to
be so dry that the pastors and meadows
afford but little security to the buildings
which 'hey surround, as the stubble. of
grass hive become so parched thrt the
fire communicates from place to place
with an alarming rapidity. During the
wind on S-itttrday several buildings iu the
south easterly part of Vermont were burnt,
together with a considerable quantity of
haynd grain. Troy Mail.
The bill to postpone until the first of
January lc-39, ihe 4th installment of the
deposite of surplus revenue with the States,
finally passed the House of Representa
tives, on Friday night by a vote of 1 18 to

and the entire delegation from South Car
olina voted for it, except Mr. Waddy
Thompson. We would have done the
same, had we been called to vote on the
subject. We shtll gel in debt enough as
it is.
This bill, it will be observed, only po-t-poxesihe
payment of the fourth installment
whereas the bill which passed the Sen
ate provides fjr the permanent withhold
ing of the 4th installment from the States.
The House bill, however, does not imply
anv pledge on the part of Congress to pay
the installment at the time specified, or at
all. An amendment pledging the ulti
mate ptyrnent was moved by Mr. Adams,

Sap Accident. On Monday last a
son of Hon. Stephen Oliver of this town,
a lad of about 14 years, undertook, with
out the knowledge of any other person, to
split a log with powder ; and for this pur
pose bored a large hole, put in his powder,
drove a plug over it, and was preparing
the other work for firing, when some fire
dropped accidentally upon the powder and
produced an immediate explosion, driving
the plug through the fore ptrt of his cap,
and burning his eyes and face in so shock
ing a manner as to endanger his life, and
deprive him, at present, if not forever, of
his sight. The frequent and often fatal
accidents by powder, ought to operate as
a caution against me careiess use 01 it.

Shocking Accident
We are in-
formed that a painful accident, the result
of carelessness, occurred at Hempstead
on Monday last. At a military parade,
two young men were thoughtlessly snap
ping their guns at each other, supposing
they were neither of them loaded. But
one of lhe,n, it appear?, unknown to the
other, was charged with buck-shot, and
the gun being fired, the contents were dis
charged into the thigh of the other young
man, mutilating him in a most shocking

Caution to Correspondents. -Tin
postmaster general has decided, in a recen:
instance, that any writing upon the en

"Joseph Thompson, with the respects of

pay letter-postage for it, while the sender
was subjected to a fine of five dollars.
