Pursuant to a public requuition signed by many citi
MM ot Brooklyn, oalling for an expression of public
op n a la regard to the recant assault upon Senator
fcumner, an immense gaiberirg of the Brooklynitea took
plaee at the Oity Ball in our slater elty. The lust inten
tion was thai the meeting should be held In the Park
fae ng ihe City Hall, but that arrangement was not a
tirat earned out, P'tedbly owing to the faet that the*

p aoe the main business of the evetitg was conducted,
though the large Ucreaoe of the assemblage subsequently
rendered it necessary to hold an outside meeting, as will
he seen below. The Court room wo- Id probably hold fire
or sia bandred: but within a short time after the organ!
za loo of the meeting, it contained muoh more than that
number. It was in fact uncomfortably crammed; and
wallet It was almost impossible to get in, it was nearly as*
difficult to get out.
Ex-Mayor Lamhkrt cahed the meeting to order, and
nominated his Honor Mayor Hall as Chairman, whiah

We are here as firm and true disciples of Washington,
the fatter of our constitution, a constitution
winch bas been outraged by this attack upon
Senator Sumner. Outraged, I say, because the constlca
lion guarantees to every individual, and every Senator
Of the Vnited States, first, liberty ot speech. Our consti
tution prtTides that no Senator or Representative shall
he called In qnestion for words spoken in debate in any
other p'ace but in the Senate or in the Honse. What a
Spectacle have we before us! An eloquent man rising
np in hie seat, Inspired by the mighty truth of his theme,
and for having expressed those words of truth and elo
quence is struck down by a bludgeon In the hands of a
inffian. (AopUuse.) And another feature of the con
stitution, which requires and provides that all onr citi
zens shall have guaranteed to them, at all tlmse, the
iaaliecable right or free speech?that, too, has been ont
ontragad. And acolher feature, which provides the
flcmmoe blessing of life, liber'y and the pnrsult of hu
man happ ness?that has been broken d >wn by this
attaek. Gentlemen, in the days of the Roman
republic the great Julius Caiiar was aaeasslnaed
in the Senate House, and the Roman repub
lic was In arms. Co-sr. renowned In the science
of war and statesmanship; our .Senator Arom
Xasoaohusetls, fir he Is ours as well as theirs?(great
?ppleuse)?jes, our t^ator, equally renowned In the
arts of peace and of statesmanHbip, of scc'al cultivation
and refinement anl Christian principle, be has been
?truck dowQ?for wbt.t r Kor bis zealous adherence to
Ifce faith and principles of the lathera of tbe country, a
lie andarstood tbtiri, and for no other crime. (Loul ap
plause.) Fellow citizens, I shall be verv brief. It is la
pes. ib'e to dlegu>se the great fact that this same fall prln
eiple which knocked Cnarles Sumi tr dewn upon the fioo
of the b>nat* house, upon theiikd day 01 May, ta thevar/
name fell apiilt which sacked the city ol Lawrence oo th
?am* Ull cay cf May. (Immense cheering.) The seal
spii it tnat under look to close up tbe e oquent lips o
Senator .Sumner, the same day adzed upon a free pi in tin;
eflice lu Iawrenoe City and threw it Into the river. Her ?
we have a movement which indicates a power behind the
throne. We have beard talk of "the slave power," and
It ise.Ted to some people a mere abstraction, but when
ire find It breaking in the skulls of Senators, then we gee
wbat it la diiving at. (Applau?e.) Wnat are we
to think of the Senators or the RepieaenUUves
.who pUJlate or justify the c-lmo? (Hisses ) There are
men in that Senate house who claim to be men, who
witnessed this outrage, and perhaps nee who will
eosne before you in a short time asking for your suffrages
??(Vo.(Kn?''never?never.") And no', the least among
those men was a man known as Senator Arnold liouglas.
/Immense biasing?cat calls, and bo o-oh.) A> d, trentle
men, the evUenoe is conclusive that he stood withli a
few fleet of Sumner when taoae bludgeon blows were
?truck upon that man's head; aud be rises up lnhli seat
and says the reason be did not go to the rescue of t ie
Weeding m?n was, ''because his motives might bo mis

Well, just In political parlance, that hie proepeste might
Ike itnieired at Cincinnati; and if the democratic party
?honld be eo mad as to nominate him?
A Vokik?"We'll kill him."

If Southern Senators and Southern reoresen'aiiVM ara
letermined to meet argument wi h violence, sloqusnoe
with bludgeon*, sympetcy for opproaaioa with blood ?I
aay if yon stir up tba spirit of tha Northern people In

?a spirit cf a people who will go into the warfare with
a full faith in the motto which tasolrsd Oram well la all
his eoaquatls?it it well " to trust in God, anl keep our
powder dry." Mr. Winslow resumed his seat aaaid entbu
slastie applause.
General NT* was the next speaker, and observed that
ha came from a sick bed to miog e his sorrow and indig
nation witb his fe 1 w citizens oafora him, at tha sad aid
disgraceful occurrence which took plaoe a faw days slice
in the American Senate chamber. That outrage had
imprinted the badge of disgrace upon the bcow of tha
Ameiioen republic The weuad inflicted upon Swmner
wsa Ihtir blow (applause); the blood that tiiezlad down
his manly face was 'heir bl vd (cheers), and that blow
which strcck bim sense'ess to ths floor, was a blow la
Dieted upon ail their liberties as American oitizsns. (More
applause). Bowersr, he held that this tceurnmoe was
in a manner providential. As be bad occasion to remark
a few days stone la New Jersey, It required tbe hood of a
Wairsn 'to stir np that spirit which vindicated their
fathers and their liberties. It seems t-> me In these alsspy,
drowsy times, when ear country's right' are endangered,
that it tor k the blow on Sumner's bead t > roues ths peo
ple to s proper sense of their ilghta and dignity. (Ap
plause ) I have remarked that it seems to me that this
universal sentiment is exaltly lbs thing that ths coun
try needs. I come not here to speak as a polltiolaa; I
should be ashamed to do It on saab an occasion as this.
But, sir, this outTtge appeals to the maahood of every
one of us. (App'ause.) Aid when we remember thst it
is our collective aotion and operation that makes up the
public sentiment of this government, it seems to me that
we should feel more of personal responsibility, in via w of
the exigencies of the times, than we formerly felt, and
tbat Is just wbat the country requires. Most of you
have seen the manly form of Cnarles Sumner; and real
ly. when we believe that man was created in the image
of his Maker, it really enlarges our views of the Deity
itself, when we think of Humner's manly f rm His phy
sical form is but indicative of his mental strength.
And, sir, it was but the burning words of
of t:u'h?it was touching with as irou that was heated
?n thai furnace of truih that made that universal seriig
irgthere?(laughter and applause)?and for the utter
ance of tbat truth, he was struoa down by as cowardly a
hand as ever wielded a cane. (Kenswed applause.) But,
sir, that was not alone his blow? if it was an individual
blow, we would say it was tbe effervescence of a madman.
(A voice?Never.) Yes, arything?cut it was not.
That blow seenrs to be Justifleo by a large porttou of our
country, and for that reason
Several voices, excitedly?No, uo?only 160,006. (Con
fusion )
Gereral Nvx? 1 speak territoeit '.y?no1, of the number.
It receives justifies! ion at tha hands of presses, and Sena
tors have risen on the floor of the Senate and said that
they approved the aet. (Great hissing and groaning )
Now, sir, the popular doctrine is?my clerical friend be
side me will pardon the allusion?in total depravity. I
have sometimes, until this natter occurred, denied tha
there is such a thing in the human heart as tttal
depravity. I have said it was the common
impulse of tbe wildcat aavage that ever roamed the
forests, if he saw a man lying bleeding prostrate at his
feet, to reach out his hand and give dim aid. But, sir,
I believe refinement and Benatorlsi posiion make men
more totally depraved?if ths exhibitions of tha conduct
of some of them are to be taken as a standard?than the
wildest savsge who treads the wi'derness. (Applause.)
8<r, where slumbered the humsnity of Senator ToomMl"
(i soghter and hisses.) Where slept the gushing heart
of Douglas? (Loud hisses.) Where was taeir manhood
when blow succeeding blow upon ths senseless form of a
prostrate man was unchecked by their stalwart forms
and arme ? (Cries of " That is it.") That, air, givss a
deeper dye to the whole transaction. (Applanss ) That,
sir, is to my mind the poison upon the weapon that made
tbe gashes on Sumner's head. (Heneeed cheers.) Bat
they are arraigned before the tribunal of an indigo sn.
people, and to-night tbe people are sitting la judgment
upon that question. To night, not only here, but every
where where freedom of speech is valued, they are pro
nouncing rentencs upon this inhumanity.
That makes countless millions mourn
(Applause). Sir. 1 would that this were ell. I would,
sir. that those wounds were cicatrized; but, alas! it Is
noi so. There Is a tongue In every wound on great
Sumner's head that will peal in thuader tones through
this nation, until justice?stern and inflexible justioe?
shall have been executed upon the head of the nerpetra
tor of this outrage and bis coadjutors. (Enthusiastic
cheering ) Sad occurrences?heart-rending events?
rarely come single. Sir, while a Senator is bleeding in
Washington, bone ot our bone and flesh of onr flesh are
bleeding on the plains of far off Kansas; am the flames
ot burning Lawrence? lurid flames?have literally pic
tured bell upon the skies. It Is a part of the same eat.
I rejoioe that freemen have aroused in their might now.
You are to-right not playing, bat acting the part of the
good Samaritan. You are pouring balsa into the wounds

on Charles Sumner's head. He trill not Sgbt. His wea
pons are not the weapons of steel, but they are the wea
pons which are thrice whetted?weapons of reason?
end they will vet tell in the oonlltot. (Vociferous plau
ci's, smid which the (ienerai reared.)
Rev Mr. Hatftcid next addressed th? meeting. He
dp sired to eey that he was a minister of the Gospel, bat
still he was a man? (applause)?and he saw no incom
patibility between his duties as a Christian teacher and
bis sympathising with his assembled fellow citizens.
His honor and liberties, as weil as theirs, had been alike
outraged by the moan, dastardly coward who had mur
derously struck dewn Charles Sumner, one of the noblest
men in the Union. (Applause ) The South, he be
lieved. aanUd the free meu of the North to go down
upon their bellies In the mire and eat dirt. ("Never,
never.") He trusted, however, that God in his
t i-dom would bring out of this dreadful outraga
!. ult of value to all lovers of their country, and
the paramount principles of liberty of opan
? xpreision _of opinion. The reverent gentleman
then entered into what ha designated the en
croachments of the flare power?thatis, the
compromise measures?the Fugitive Slavs law,
the Kansas Nebraska bill, and all that. He tbongbt
that |f, after ali they had endured, this last thousandth
insult was <o be passed by unheeded, tike the other insults
cast upon the North, then. Indeed, they had become so
debased, that it was of little come^uence how inuctt more
tbsy might suffer.
Ktv. H. Ward Bixcukr was next Introduced, and when
tho applause with which he was receive! bad subsided,
be spoke in substance as follows:?He alluded to the
apology made by the previous speaker, but thought no
apoL gy should be made, as noua was necep -> -y. Slavery
was a book which was read by the lurid ligl., ef hell?it
is. said be a book whose axioms sprang taenoe, and
whose last reading will be there. (Applau<e and laugh
ter.) He was opposed, with alt his heart and soul, to
siavrtv, for, from his car lest age, he had loved liberty
as dearer to bim tban life itself. For himself, he woald
be free, living or dying, and he claimed freedom not only
for himself out for all menkiad. The only way to edu
ci> '? men for freelom was to give it to tbem. It might
be refused to th in on the ground that they were not fit
(or It, but it would b? on the same ground that you
shou'd not allow a child to go into the water until he knew
how to swim. There is now a gool prospect of establishing
fisedom, after so muoh has b?en sacrificed to slavery.
The Speaker compared it to a upas ties wolch bis eke nod
everything around It. I would n t (ks continued) attempt
to Interfere with sltvery where it is, and would say,
there let It stand till In the natural course o! events It
goes down lor ever. I would not harm South Caro.lna?
the is harmed enough already, fin htvicgench a son.
(Laughter and applause.) Brocks had violated every
principle of humanity?there Is cot a pugilistic sneak in
New dork wto would be gnllty ofsuoh dastardly ooward
ice. I never would lay the hand of violenoe upon them,
no. I would say keep what ynu hare got, but nothing
more shall you have. The genius of slavery rules at
Washington. It was not the ruler of a free nation who
cccupied the 1'resldent'a chair, aod not one of the
?;ovsrnmsnts ot thirty oC our States had a word to say
or liberty. It la time tint this spirit ot slavery
was cast out. As to Sumner, there was not a nobler man
in the Senate, and too much could not be said In hie
praise. The speaker compared him to a lamb which had
Deen torn to pieces?while all pitied the fate of the poor
lamb, not a word was said about the wolf?there was no
body to pursue or hunt it down. Slavery was the welf,
atd it would be destroyed and tha coxntry rid of ibs
bsntlul presence.
Hon. Oharlbs Allen, who was introduced by tbe Presi
dent as a olitzen of Massachusetts, said he deemed it nn
necrssary, in presencs of such a tribute to Massaebusetls
and its nob'e Senator as this meeting pre tented, to say a
word in regard to the honor of that State. They had
dote her honor, and shown their indignation ia a proper
way, at ihe outrage which had been committed upon her
favored son ia the Senate Chamber. He was not of the
same politics' party with that cletiogalshed man, and
when be was in tbe legislature he voted against
bis appointment to t'ae Ssnate of .he ULited Sta es, but
nothing could be said against the purity of his character
or of his aots in his Sena orial capacity. He was pleased
to see the people of Sew York coming up and sustaining
the liberties of speech, wbleh were dear to all. Massa
chasetts, whiob had already sbosn her devotion to liber
ty at Bunker Hill, knew bow to delend bar rights, and
wruld, if nec'SFary ia such a cause, pour on', her blood
and treasures like water. The speaker concluded by
thanking the meeting for the honor they had done Mas
eacnusects and ter noble sen, Charles Sumn-r.
Mr Brigos, of Ohio, wasca'led upon, and returned bis
thanks lor the manner in which tbe citizens et this city
had speken out ou the outrage whloh had betn committed
upon a Senator of the Sta'e of Massachusetts. He would
tell them that if necessary to preeerve the right of free
speech, there were enough Buckeyes who would g) on to
Washington and sustain it tn the face of all oppostti <n.
Ohio had one Senator In Congress whom they noull
have a bout with if they liked. (Three cheers for Wale).
The speaker wished Wade wars present, as the sound of
thoee sheers would be music in bis ea'fl. He then pro
nounced a phil.lplc against slavery, and denounced Rev.
Mr. Milts, or Indianapolis, tor supporting the system.
The gentlemen, Preston Brooks, had a cane presented to
him. (Cries of do gentleman.) Well, a Southern gen
tleman?tbe citizens of Richmond had ua'e him a
prerent of a cane, on tho top of which was
a broken bead; bat ho woald teli tbe
South that if they oared to lay hands upon aaothar rep
resei.tative either in the Henate or tbe House, tbe
Nor'h would rise iu its might and crush beneath l's heel
the head of the tfemon slavery. If they dared to do tbi*
again, Northern men sb uld proclaim the emancipation
of the slave. (Tremendous apdaosa.)
There were loud calls for ex mayor l-ambert, who made
a '?* brief remarks, and concluded by stating that he
had In his hand a most important despatch, whlah he
read, as follows:?

considerable enthusiasm pierelled, but wore moderate in
character than that mani'seted by the audience within
H. N. Holt, Eeq , was called to preside. He iatro'_
duoed the speakers successively to the audience. A po.
Meema^'s lantern being the only light furnished, the
reporters were compelled to take their notes ia the dark.
Dr. McPhao. wee introduced, and apoke at some length,
hut our reporter wee unable to hear what he sail, ex
cept hie peroration, In whieh he characterized Brooks a*
"a loathfome toad, a skunk and n hypocrite."
Rev. Hkokt Wabd Bikciikx, having been called for,
came 'crward and said that he had been asked if he was
prepared to make a speech. He was ready at all times
to do so, end on an occasion Ilka tha present, ha was
reacy at a moment's aitioe. flu heart was like a Cro
ton rese r voir urn the taucet and a stream gushed out?
only instead of water Usaed are. He appeared t> de
nounce the entrsge which had been committed apoa the
oau.e of liberty in the person of one of the noolest men
that ever dignified the halls of leg Nation. But worse
even than be who give that base and cowardly blow,
weie those Senators who stood by and did not Interfere
to prsvrnt that outrage. There was n > man in the United
States whore woids were culled wl(h more rigorous refer
ence Vw the rules of propriety and courtesy that were those
of ceuator Sumeur; out the truth of rhs speech, which oc
casioned the assault carries the veuom to their hearts,
and b< in? unanswerable ia logic, they resoited to the
argumtntwn bacuhnrm. The truth f the speech made
tham lnluriats. We of the North have but one of two
courses to pursue-either to etrugge for eonititu
tioael liberty under the law, or assent to acarshy.
If we want constitutional liberty we mast go to
the heart of the hod/ politic, and not endeavor to
drive an internal disease out by cut ward application.
The nature of slavery has for a long tims been to make
encroachments, aud the time has oome when it has
walked into the government. It overrules the delibera
tions of our cabinet, and it is time thet fre?m*o should
rouse themselves, ant look to their rights Hi hoped
Ibt-y would n>t lorget the pest, but would press for word
until a new and a belter administration was ob ainel at
Mr. bn.CK.s, of Ohio, stated that he was a native of the
hbrpiie State, but thai he hated Brooks as a miscreant,
cowatd, assesnio, and a mean man, which he thought
wss tbi lowest designation could be given to any man
Hike the Five Points, and any man In it wonld be in
sulted it *ou eskcd him if he would striae a man whilsthe
was sitting. But a few more blows on the hseds of
Northern Senators, and .he institution of slavery would
be amor g tbe dark records of the past. There had bet n
a fire kindled at Kansas, which, like those at Concord aud
I<extr>gtan, would lead to liberty. Charles Sumner was a
model American citizen, Senator and a man?and there
was no fear of his death He was a temperate man, mad
not pickled In mleobol, and the day might yet oome wh?n
Charles Smmner might write hit) name President of the
I'mtsd Stale* (Cheers.)
Geo. Nye l.uclee Birdseye, Edward W. Fiefce, Wes??18.

Dr. Worcester of Salem, and Mr. Branson, an egent et tho

The following pieamo'e and resolutions were Intro
la view of the ceaseless aggression of the slave power
in our land, atd especially in view of the recent brutal
attempts to extinguish free speech to the Congress of the
United States, and take the lives of freemen in KaaeA*?
We. Minister* ol the Gospel, to the end that we may
bear oui united and eliiolent testimony before atl men, do
hereby calmly, prayerfully, and as to the eight of Grd,
erabocy our deep rsiigiour convictions, and our unaltera
ble purposes, in the following resolutions:?
Reeo.ved, That the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Chil3t Is
the csly antidote for ain, and the only assure basis either
of personal character or political insti-aiions?adapted
alike to the fa mi y, the church and the State, en 1 pre
cisely fitted to work out in thetn all the highest and
noblest ends.
Resolved, That we can entertain no hope that Ameri
can slavery will be done awey, or its countless usurpt
Mens peacefully cease, except as the result ol a wifely in
creased conviction of its hetefulness In the eight of God,
and its Inherent and inevitable antiginUm to the very
spirit of Christ. And we do therefore 'pledge to eaeh
other our mutual co operation, symoathy and ail in the
work of developing through the pulpit, the church and
the press, en enlighttned public sentiment on this whole
Resolved, That the murderous assault upon our honor
ed Senator, Charles Sumner, is not only e dastardly as
sault opr. a his person, end through him upon the right
of free speech, but also a wound which w* individually
feel, and by which our very hearts bleed; and whether
he snail recover, or sink into a martyr's grave?which
may God avert?we will aldress ourselves unto prayer
and efiort that this sorrowful event msy become the
> glorious resurrection of national vUtue, and the triumph
i f freedom.
Resulted, In view of the present orisls in oar national
affairs, and especially the awful perils that Impend over
Kama' aed the land, we see a new exbiottlon of the es
sentially corrupt and corrupting spirit of slavery, acd a
new necessity tba' we, as miniates of the gospel and
lot era cf liberty, should gird ourselves afresh to op pose
its sggresiions ?nd secure the final triumph of freedom.
There were adopted ana the offlsers directed to trans
mit a copy to Congress.
The Bi lik Church Property?Motion (or on
Before Hon. Judge Roosevelt.
Mat 31? Arkenburg, Karl; and others, vs. The Mo'jor,
Comptroller, &c , of Nexo Yorlc.?Ur. Field, on the part
of the p'alntiffs, proceeded to sum op. This was a suit
brought by citizens and tax payers of New Yoik egalnst
the corporation and other pertles who claim to have pur
cbesed the Brick church property, and to restrain the
Mayor and Conrp'roller from affixing the seal ot the city
to a release of the conditions of the grant mads to the
trustees of the Brick chnrch of 1768. Mr. Field argued
in fkvor ot the perpetuation ct the injunction, and con
tended that if the property was worth 9400,000 at the
present time, there could be tound plenty of men In the
el'y who would willingly elve $200,000 for the right to
dictate to the trustees of the Brlok ohurch the terms of
sale, with e certaiaty of making fifty per cent on their
investment within two years. The chnroh proposes to
give the city oue f >urth rf the $270,000, instead of $200,
fCO, wh'ch the public treasury would receive, if the opin
ion of Mr. Recorder Tlilou bad been adhered to. After
reterrtcg to the law and the fac s of the case, Mr. Field
itJd it wee one In which the Court should interfere, and
that the contliuanc* of the Injunction should he granted
natii a r 1*1 or it ion of the whole case should he made upon
tlewJi'*. If the Court would put the property up, It
wiuli fiol what it was really worth, or iflt were put up
in lots, it would brtiga larger ?um than any that had
been named yet. Decision reserved.

had cot proceeded far when an explosion took place,
much to the conaternatl nof ill on boar]. On examina
tion it vai round Uat one of the condensers had got out
of order, aed that s body of scalding water was thrown
upon the chief engineer, injuring him dreadfully. No
other person, UoweTer, was Injured. The maohioery waa
immediately stopped, and tb<> Fulton lay to off the Bat
tery. The ateamtug J- S. Undethlll came alongside in
the course oi an hour, and took the injured man off and
landed Urn at the Clambers p'-eet d:c*. Workmen were
?ent for, end the owners notified of the aeaident, who,
upon conaulta'ion with experienced engineer*, decided .hat
it waa better fur the veitel to proceed on her j lurney, as
the damage did not amount to muei, and tbere waa no
(larger. Aeeoxdlrgiy, about 6 i'clock in the evening, the
veaeei weighed anchor and elood out to sea. While the
vsyrel ?aa the o?7 the erowlj assembled on the dock
were entmlsing what waa the matter, and the report ?ra<
current among them that Mr. Crampton had gone on
board, a rumor that may have some truth, as he waa
certainly in the ciy yeiteiday.
Suootwu AniUY.?About two o'clock yesterday
morning a shooting affray occurred at the corner
| of Hamilton and Catharine streets, in which one
? sn, united John Watscn hhultz, was sere rely If
not fatally injured. It appears, as far as we have
teen able to learn, that Shults was at:aoted by five
person*, one ox whom he had a difficulty with same days
sgo. when this pereca recognised him, and saying, "Here
is the villain," drew a pistol and fired it at the unoffend
irg man. The alarm was quickly raised, and the polloe
at the Fourth ward hastened to the scene of the affcav,
bat the peipetrator* of the assault had tied; and although
?tiict search was subsequently made for them, they all
escaped. The wonnded man was taken to the New York
Hospital, where (he house surgeon examined bis wound,
rhe ball, It appeared, entered the right breist, ana pass,
log through the iucg went out beneath th# left smulder
blade. Ccrooer Conoety was notified to hold an ante
mortem examloutlen, bat the wonnded maa was too weak
to give aoy testimony in regard to the afftlr. Bat slight
hopes are entertained of Shultz's recoverw.

bis financial report lor the mon'h, whioh showed the oath
cvnulbutions to have baen (264; but that there are bill*
due, and c'aiuis matuiirg before the end of the present

more than provided for by the public. Alter an intro
< uetory address, by the newly sleeted President, F. R.
II.leu, and an appropriate reply by the Chairman and
other members, and the transaction of ordinary business,
the agent submitted his diaries of Discharged Cjnviet
and Detention committees, from which it appears that
nearly 4C0 petsms had beeu viti.ed in our city prisons
d'tiiog the month. From this number those were care
fully selected who had no friend at h?ttd. and were with
tu' means to help themselves, and especially thost who
for the first time were arrested charged with
ciime. The compiafnante, parents, employers or
trends were sought out and onnsul'ed, and the hiitory
and antecedents of the aeeused ascertained, ana whet
e**r?ctrcnm*tances of extenuation appeared, were re
spectfully submitted to the Court on the tiial; and in no
fev instances has this ins11'.ution been instrumental in
uavicg (especially young) persons from the degradation of
a penitentiary and the never-to-be-forgotten brand oon
sequent on being an inmate of tbe State prison. One
hundred and twoniy-seven complaints were iinptrtially
investigated; several of these were abandoned on their
advice, especially where made by wives against their
husbands. Thirty-four persons charged on slightgrounds
wore discharged from cur courts and prisons on recom
mendation of tbe association. Seventeen discharged eon
vlcts teethed assistance in mousy, which enabled soma
(ftbem to reach tteir friends or obtain employment

of the State cf New York (a compelled to repudiate and
denounce the frand perpetrated upon It, and while it t?
spocds to the call fcr a National Amerioan Convention,
by the app intment of dei?*nte? thereto, >o aeciare its ad
herence to the principles, and all the principles, as enuA
ciated by the State Council held at Ifingbamtoa, in
August last; therefore
Resolved, That the Amerioan party of the Slate of
New York, as represented by this Convention, re affirms
the declaration of principles as adopted by the State
Council at Birghamton.
Resolved, That in accordance with the true spirit and
meentig of that declaration, we utterly repudiate and
denounce tbe repeal of the Missouri compromise, we
utterly repudiate and denounce the policy as Initiated by
the present adminlsnation in its Kansas-Nebraska mea
sure, the object and purpose of which wis to extend
slavery into there rerritoiles and ultimatsly to force
them in'o tbe Union as Slavs States; that ws utterly
repudiate and denounce the outrages perpe'.rated lu
Ktnrax, tbe legitimate result cf uoat measure; that
we utterly execrate and abhor the outrages perpetrated
in Washington, the natural sequence of giving sway
to the violent and reckless eptiit of slavery prop*
Resolved, That the two great sentiments pervading the
American mind of tbe B.ele if New Yorka are?f irst.
The American and .Protestant sentiment, secondly, Op
position to the extension of human slavery And that
these two F.euthnxnts. as embodied in tbe Mag ham to a
platform, were outraged by the pretended Philadelphia
comix ation. That the no miner * did not represent the
American and Protectant sentiment, while they did re
present the pro-slavery sentiment of the South?the one
by bis antecedents, his past affiliations, and present as
sociations, by the manner of his nomination and the In
fluences which produce it, and the other by his public
declaration ruaae in the Convention that nominated htm;
and because they thus represent principles and measures
antsgcnistical to those held ani advcoatel by the Ameri
can party, we repudiate and reject them.
Resolved, That while we disclaim ell intention of la
otrnctirg cur delegates in regard to individual* whoae
xames may be presented for nomination in the National
Convention to be held on the 12th of June next,
ws earnestly recommend that they use their best ex
ertions to preeen;, as candidates for the support of the
Acreiioan people, men who embody these two great
conservative elements, in whose support all honeit and
earnest Americans, aud all honest and earnest oppo- '
cents of tbe extension of human slavery, may, without
a eaciifice of principle, or their own self-respect, units.
On motion the delegates to New Yoris Convention
were empowered to flil vacancies.
Mr. moved that the delegates to the New York
12th of June Convention from th's Slat* meet in that
city cn the ilth of June, and proceed to take measure*
fcr the establishment of a Grand Council, favorable to
tbe principles declared in the Bmghamton platform.
Mr. Watker objected, saying that lio did not think
this Convention should title a step so radical?that it
was not prepared to adopt any measure so revolutionary ia
its character. Tho time had not come for such a sever
ance from the Amei ican party, and it would be extreme
ly unwise for this Convention to meddle with a subject
se important.
Another delegate coincided with the views expressed
by Mr. Walker. He, too, thought this Convention *hauld
paut-e. It thould, in fact, nave nothing tc do with
such a proposition. He had been told that there wwra
but twe Councils in the Slate which bad not endoreed
the Philadelphia nominations?indeed, be had heard since
that ore ot these had ratified these nominations. He
could not say how true this was, hut he was for waiting
until Mr. killmore returned to the country and waa in
terrogated upon certain points baforo he could accede to
amy such notion. He intimated, too, taat there waa a
chance c-1 th*lr being expelled from the Order.JHe wanted
to remain in it as long as he could. More could be aa
coBplished that way than ln>ny other.
The mover of tbe resolution had peraUsicn to with
draw It.
On motion of F. H. Haggles, a rasolntlon was adopted,
endorsing the course of th* RtgUUr, whereupon
Mr. Hammond expressed his thanks, and allowed that
it was the Brst particle of consolation he had experience!
