Because the whites have so long robbed the colored race of their natural and monl rights, it is no justification for continuing that robbery. But, say some, slavery has stood so long and has become so deeply rooted, that it cannot be immediately removed. To such I would say, then let us go to work at the roots uncorer them, and see how they look. if any are so lonj that they cannot be hauled out, let us cut them off, and keep to work until the stump, is remov ed.- '. - - - O ! but you will irritate the Southern Chris tians by preaching up immediate emancipa tion.- " ; J ' :'!

I believe there are many who, could they be made to see bear- ingiAetr holding the legal relation of master to slave has, on the interests of the colored people generally, would say, I will imme diately cease, to hold that relation.. Others deprecate this doctrine, more than any other, because it is the most likely to accomplish the object designed by the friends of the slave. Others still say, ' if you don't stop talking so much about immediate emancipa tion, we'll dissolve the Union!' wbatafine plan that would be ! ! Should it be done, the slaves would skip across the line into the free States like sheep following their leader over a broken fence. No one need fear this.

I presume the Doctor intended well j but look at the result. The Rev. Doctor became bankrupt as to property, and his man Am brose must be sold. Had he brought the lave to a free State, una there given him his freedom, then he would not have been again sold: this principle of benevolence wou have been" carried out, to the honor, of the Doctor, and the benefit of the slave. Here 1 think the word immediate should have been impressed ob his mind. When hehad bought the slave, "let him have started immediately for a lree State; and on ai riving there, said to Ambrose, .'You are now free. Or. if he bad not been able to lose the amount paid for him, - let him have said to him, Go to work." and pay baek as soon as you can, or as much as you can. But instead of this, by purchasing and holding him as a slave, he sanctioned the practice, and the man must Lhe again sold to the highest bidder. Now, according ray view of the word immediate, it is this: Take hold of whatever piece of work a man may, if he use all suitable means to perform the work;- and persevere 'a that work without cessation until it is accompli ed, heroes it immediately, z A man calls at my shop and asks me how soon I will shoe his horse round with new shoes.

How c i et y. -Th is bod y was very fully repre sent ea by delegates irotn the various sec tions of our immense country. An infor mal meeting was opened with prayer by brother Bolls, of Salem, Mass. The com mittee appointed jit the last meeting, to report on the Constitution, being called uponV stated they had examined a large mass of docutreuts expressive of the wish es of various churches,' auxiliaries, and other ecclesiastical bodies, in reference to the question of domestic distribution, and that with the exception of two churches, all had expressed their anxiety that the Society should embrace our own? with all other lands, as the field ot its operations. On a suggestion that the Society should only employ distributions, the common English version Avhereyer it made distri bution in our language, a protracted dis cussion followed; during which it seemed to be generally admitted that the common version is, on the whole, superior to nny other extant in our languagestill .the expediency and propriety of adopting a restrictive principle, was questioned by a large number of the speakers. During the whole of this debate, involving a prin ciple, in which, a dee interest has long been felt in our ranks, it was highly grair in ifying to observe from the language .and. Id I manner of the speaker?, t hat though they were divided in juagmen, tney were not in affection. A disposition was evinced to weigh well the important step, which we were about to take. . 1 hose who khow how soon unpleasant feelings arise, and how rapidly they spread in a large popu- f lar assembly, and tual among men -too, who are jealous of their, rights would J we think, feel .disposed to acknowledge the gracious presence and direction of Him who is emphatically the Prince of Peace, during all the transactions of the day. We were gratified to observe that though there were many speeches-i-r-stil long speeches were hot at all in vogue.. On Thursday the Society was organ ized. The president, S. . H. Cone, . the recording and corresponding" secretaries and nearly all the officers were re-elected. A committee of nine was appointed to report on the various .communications from auxiliary societies, churches, con ventions, &c. &c, with a view to ascertiin (vhether - the- society should engage in home, as well as in foreign distribution A resolution was offered by brother Bab- cock, that iv be recommended to the Boird to apply no part of its funds; for printing or circulating the ; Scripture? in thiscounr try, unless in cases where the donors or contributors had expressly "specified their apphcaiiomto home -distribution.
