COMMUNICATIONS. Election---John P. Hale---Gov. Briggs. BOSTON, 10th Oct., 1846. Fbibm .' Massachusetts is now the theatre nf great political XciltB tut ltd fjjiiHlitn.

Siiae the pirty in M iino and New Hampsliiro hr.s amalnmntcd w ith tb other parlies, it hua Ion the little Ch irac- tar for honesty it onco had ; and is now lok- d upon every whore, as only a 6ort of iyar land, ndy in tho market, for barter w ith whoever has a spare clerkship or empty sen- ator's chair, at dip s;d. Tho party has recently taken John 1'.

Fr. tidoi cy, r. f.acu unparallcd in tho annals of human folly. I went last evening to hear Mr. II ile ad dress a meeting in tho county of Norfolk. A spacious house, capablo of rearing not less than 1200 people, was procured, I irge noiices were posted in several populous towns adjoin ing the place of meeting, the even-ng was fine, and every thing propitious j but the house was net half filled. It. ill not eny thvt the fact of his coming under llio ausj ires, and at the special solicit. .tion of a Lihe.ty party nominee for Iieprcs. ntattve to Congress, Inn! anything to do with this inou -..fully n.e .cro I attendance, but I itirt not alone in .hat opin-1 ion, nevertheless. For all the pains taken it was a very small affair. I was torry the house was not full, for ma r jr excellent and w holesome truths were ut- tend and full liberty was given, to ask questions, or maue rejections at any stage or the remarks. I saw in this, one grand result of our Ami-Slavery movement we havo ; taught the world ihe value of fr.-e meetings. J To be sure, much that was said was familiar j to Anti-Slavery care, away back in 1835; : and it was almost amusinar to sen will, what eagerness many listened for the first time, to j mcis ana aoctrinrs mat we nave o.cn trying j to gei oe.ore mem, tnese dozen years. Mr. , Hale reaps very well. The only regret is, that he did not help us more in the sowing. J I speak now particularly of New Uamn shire. The Whig party of Massachusetts is des tined to lull. Indeed.it fell with the people, last year. This year, they have again nomi nated Governor Uriggs, but he will probably again have to depend on tho Legislature for his election. They tell ine he has soie vir tues. I am glad of it. No man has more faults to be atoned for. If be were an Irish rail-road li borer, he would be indicted and punished for perjury! Ho swore he would suppon nno oeie.m urn onstiiuiton cl mo tiinfu oiiiins. no nas sworn u so oiicn Ui;il he has come to he almost pulitiirally profane.

They aro glad iho war exists, for with it they intend lo break down Democracy. They arc far more desirous to see the end of the Democratic party, than to set the end of the war. Such a party as the ..lassaciiusetts v lug puny ought to be de molished, whatever becomes of Democracy. Mr. Hale, in his speech last evening, did good justice to it, fur which be had at least my thank.

Everything that tends to divert Iho min i from the con d lemplation of slavery as mainly a moral, n religious question, and from tho American church as the bulwark of American slavery, strengthens the pr-al,iveri sr,-ts in their un- , roliiciuH a(Sociatirn. It it in n certain Brute n pulli- cal question, nud a commercial question, and a social queaiion, but it i pre-eminently a moral, a religious question. The slavehol der so regards it, and although he may retreut behind the slave code for defense, nnd point to constitutional guarantee, yet his tnrin re Ciijjo is in tho religion of tho day, nnd he fetl secure so hmjr as th it sanctions It i -ystem of wrong.

The veteran abolition ist h is learned by years of painful and toil some experience, that the church is the prop, the support ot slavery ; its main arm of de fense; its chief bulwark and that he who would labor most cflectuilly to destroy it, mast attact il in its strong hold, nud dr..g i. even from between the very horn of the al tar. He has been made to comprehend that while the power of the church sits behind the throne, directing and couirollingtheage.it it has placed upon it, he should attack that now-er which is mirrhtier than the throne.

They profess to draw thn lino clearly between themselves and pro-sl tvery sects they claim ing to be an nuti-sl ivory church. But un less we mis itnlerstiod their principles, they grossly violated them on a recent oceision, an I III," s mi of former d .ys went down to Egypt for help. They hel l aennp meeting this ..ninth on the Columbiana circuit about two miles from lions so failed that at the 1st day's meeting , , , , . inrre was nni a single preacnernn ine ground The Wesleyans who had called the meelin" were in a quandary, for a camp meeting without preachers was nn anomaly in church history. The only expedient ihey could think of, was to invite a Methodist Episco pal priest. True, they had denounced ihat church 1.9 pro-slavery, hid refused to remain in christian fellowship with its members, and owed their very existence aa a sect to their war upon it; hut all these considera tions were lost sight of in the great fact that they bad no preachers on lbs camp ground. They a:??riirt nppiiel to M. L. Weekly, a Methnlist Episcopal clergyman residing in Columbians, who very properly declined tho invitation, moved thereto, perhaps, by ihe hostile position in which thn Wesleyans stood. On the 4th day of tho meeting they invited brother Durt, a local preacher of the M. C connection to lend them a helping hand. Their ca-e was truly a desperate one, for nlthough they had by that time obtained one or two preachers of their own denomtna .ion, yet more preachers were needed. Urolher Durt accepted the invitation, nnd the strange sight was presented, of s Metho dist Episcopal minister preaching by invito' lion from a Wesley,.) pulpit! It m.y bo that some nf the Wesleyans were shori sighted enough to suppoco they were using Mat to build up and strengthen their denom inational towers, not dreaming th it tho very opposite was true, ihat thn course they were pursuing was destroying their character for sincerity snd trutli. After the Methodist Episcopal preacher was through, brollier .Savage, the Wesb -yau preacher in charge al luded to him as "our good brother." Lo, what at. ente.t lining sight Are brethren who agree."

To w hose meetings wo recently referred, con cluded his course of lectures on Friday eve ning nf last week. We think it a fact wor thy of record, that while the Quakers of Sa lem shut their meeting house against Paiker Pillshury.an ultra peace man, they opened it lo Joseph Mason who travels with pistols and How it-knife. They are, however, more con sistent in this th in would seem nt first sight, for Ihe position they occupy more nearly ap pro iches the warlike one of Joseph Mason, than ihe peaceable one of Paiker Pillsbury. True, they do not themselves use pistols und Oowie-knivcs, hut they support a government that dors. It seemed strange that Mason spoke not as a man, but as a thing, that although he stood in Ohio, his humanity was not recognized by the laws of the State whose soil he tro-l, but that it stood pledged in ils sovereignty lo "de liver him tip" on claim of his tyrant master. The simple relation of his narrative appealed strongly to the sympathies of tho people, and appeared to take n firm hold ol their feelings. We worn sorry he did not direct their ntten tion to tho fact that the government they w ere sustaining legalized his capture, and the church of which they were members sanc tioned it, that therefore, so long as they con tinued to be a part of ihat government and of that church, they were individually guilty of denying him protection, and of proscribing him as an outcast whom tho claimant of his person might constitutionally re-cnslave wherever found. Let Destruction bo writicn upon every government, which, like that of the United States, disregards the rights of humanity and makes mc.cliaudize of men. Joseph's Mason. Who is Free? Slavery, in order to make secure tho pos session of ils present victims, is obliged to control and abridge the liberty of till. The tyrant toaster is hi.n-.elf far from free ihe chain ho has fastened upon the heel of the slave is rivited ubo.it his own neck, and ils links rest upon all who tome within the in fluence of slavery's power. There is nothing the monster so much dreads us discussion, and when tho light of truth is flished upon it, it shrieks aloud in agony. To shut nut this light, and to enshroud the system in im penetrable darkness, is the studied design of its friends and suppnrters. For this they have plundered the United States mail; for this they have destroyed printing presses and administered Lynch law to the advocate? of truth ; for this ihey have enacted laws against freo speech, made the circulation of Anti Slavery publications a penal offence, and pro hibited their transmissii n by mail. These thoughts w ere suggested by the receipt of a letter from a fiiend who resides in the south, crn part of this stale, requesting a temporary discontinuance of her paper for the following reason : " I am just preparing to spend Ihe w inter in Virginia, my native state, hut cursed with taoery. In the neighborhood in which my livher lives, slavery exists iu its mildest form, but I I. ve experienced enough there tn know that 1 dare nM receive the Bugle or any other such paper through the post-office. Il is to me a piiulul lad, and my mind is harrowed """"' ' u'sr'' ever 1 revisit the scenes of mv childhood, sliilt, however, t ike the numhers I have with me, t'. al my friends there may seo what is being done in Ohio." Tub Electiun. The P sylvania Free- man, in speik.ng of the recent Whig victory in Ohio, says that the election "was lo a great extent, a question of human rights." Wh dou't know how it liny have appeared to thoso at a distance, but to us, it seemed that human rights was one of the last things Ihe electors thought of. The same party is now in power that last year refused to ropeal the Black Laws, and we h ive as yet seen no ev idence of its repentance. Bubb is strongly opposed to extending to the colored man the elective franchise, anJ hi-t denunciation of the Black Laws was used by his party loss to o 4 ranee tha eauss of hvnaaily th: t keep te Whig ir power. 1 The True American. Cassius M. Clay's paper has been diccon tinned. The brother of Cassius, w ho is bis attorney, is not willing lomrel the necessary expenditures. Ha far as the circulation of facts illustrative of slavery is concerned, it doubtless did good, but iho rlTrct of its doc trinct upon the anti-slavery cause were abso lutely injurious, fcr the spread of them would nerrssarily prevent the adoption of that purer, higher standard of principle without which the bondman has but little hope of a sptxdy and peaceful abolition of slavery.
