Agency. Worcester, Mass., Nov., 1, 1846. Dear Friends : In a lato numbrr of the Bugle, I saw a no tice that an appointment had been made for me and some others to become lecturers fur an Association for Free MTiinl Inquiry, kc, located in Ohio. The notice in the Bugle teas copied from another paper, the organ probably of that Association. I am ao uu fortunate as not to know any of the officers or members of this Association, or the Individuals ai pointed v ith mo as lectu rers, nor have 1 seen any thing by which I could fully detcimine the character or objects of the Society. And it seems to me those from whom my appointiner.t came must have been no less ignorant of me. I honor them that they can have faith in a man "whom lliey have not seon," and wish to thank them for this mark of their confidence and respect to wards me. My great distance from their ieat of operations, and constant occupancy with the pressing duties of my mission in behalf of the slave, would be a sufficient reason for declining this appointment, wire I ever so well infunned as to its objects, ever ao deeply impressed w ith its importance, and had I been directly informed (3 I have not) by any officer or member of the association, of my appointment. Of the importance of mental inquiry, of (he most untrammelled freedom of thought and speech, of the most extended discussion of all questions where the happiness and dignity of man are concerned, none are more fully convinced than myself. Nor shall my coun tenance and co-operaion in any honest move ments to secure these objects, ever be want ing. For me, the term Infidel, has no ter ror. Long ago, I elevated my own standard, and bade the world defiance. But I cannot say it is alike indill'erent to me, with whom my efforts are united. We liavo haters of the church and the priesthood, who yet are no lovers of humanity. In their opposition to the religious superstitions of the age, most heariily would I unite, if it arose j from unbending love of man, and of truth and ' humanity. I am ashamed of no person, oi society, for any extravagance of doctrine either may hold, provided there is evidence of an honest, human heart within. The extravagancies of Reform liave not begun yet to he developed. The church and priesthood will ere long em brace til the doctrines yet advanced by Gar rison, Emerson, &, Theodore Parker. But be. fore that time comes, the pioneers will have made more startling advances than any that have yet been conceived. What are the "robes of righteousness" of the church, but the cast off garments of those who are lead ing her onward and upward to eminences be yond her sight? We told her slavery was an evil. She denied it point blank. Her champion, Prof. Stuart, the Goliuh of the host, wrote a learned book, entitled "Slavery not a malum se" (an evil in itself). Then we advanced a step and said slavery is a sin. The church denied as usual, but clothed her self in our last year's opinion, that it was an tvil, and carried no more of Prof. Stuart's books to market. Then we said, a slavehol der can't be a christian. The church storm ed away again, but arrayed herself in our cast off robes of last year, and called slavnry a sen, but sought to justify somehow, the sinner. Thus onward and upward are we leading the church, and her groping, bat-blind priest hood. As she has espoused so many of our entiments, so she will yet, in spite of herself, espouse them all, and many more to be yet advanced. I honor then the unfettered soul that in scribes Excelsior on his banner. If honest and pure, and baptized into the spirit of good will to all men, no matter what it costs, I go with him, and for him. I have no reason to doubt the intentions of the Association who have honored me, un known as I am, with this confidence. It is better, however, so various are men, to be somewhat acquainted with their objects,before wo identify ourselves too intimately with their designs. Your's Truly, PARKER PILLSBURY, Anti-Slavery Religion. To Benjamin S. Si J. Elizabeth Jones i It may be laid down as a general fact, that ' the enemies of truth and righteousness when- , ever closely pursued, perhaps from an in- j ward conviction of truth, or the untenabilily j their position, endeavor to change ground their opponents. They begin with . making falsehood appear like truth, and end ; making truth itself appear like false-! hood. When truHi and moral courage drive ! unrighteous oppressor to the extreme edge of the fiald, and push him to the last stona of the precipice, we then hear the cry, Infidel I I I design these remarks to apply to tho cry of terror and alarm which pro-slavery minis- , ten and churches aro raising against those : laborers in the abolition field, whose instru- I mentalities are exclusively moral and relig ious. A number of the largest denominations of professing religionists in our land, have given sanctuary to the vilest monster that vr the Jight behelJ, or in the language of wllicll ,he aw, ,y lhe hnd make pronertv. anti.8lavery religion makes nothing property, but wmit tie ,m., nj Gud make property -flie former will do nothing but what is ex of peinent; tl.o latter nothing but what is ;ior with ay va. The slaveholder, far behind the ti nes, borrows his religion from Palriarch with ai ag0Si al)j je jsh U3ages. Anti-slavery rejgjon j founded on the precepts and exam the ,,e of Jesugi rll8 former will la8t umil jjuavf. eclos wjtl, ,,e l0UJ cry, Babylon is yuef anj ,t wiu Jia away with the last a founder of one of these denominations, "the sum of all villanies." A little band of faith ful, outspoken, uncompromising abolitionists have pursued this monster to his refuge. They only ask those churches and ministers to be true ard faithful to their own profes sions of Christianity to give up the robber, and restore that which was stolen. They only ask them to inscribe on their temples and their pulpits, "no fellowship with slave holders and their abettors." They only ask them to writo upon their bearih-stones, and their family altars, "We will not give our daughters to their sons, nor take their daugh ters to our sons who trample under foot the marriage covenant," and lo the answer re ceived is, Infidel ! Infidel ! Again, they arc asked to exclude from theircommunion table, men w ho do that in Maryland, which if done on the coast of Africa, would mark them as pirates, and condemn them, by the laws of their country, to be hung as dogs, and they answer, you ure breaking down our church es. They aro requested to cease recognising as a good, christian brother, the man who, in the person of the bondman, violates the tem ple of the Huly Ghost, and tramples with the iron-hoof of slavery, the image of his maker; and they cite to you the horrors of the French revolution. Circumstances develops character. This has been peculiarly the case in the abolition cntcr ri?e. The character of men whoso hu manity and sympathy for the oppressed and robbed slave was not suspected, has had a complete developement, and that under mo tives of greater or less pressure. ' That clergymen and leading members of churches should be so far conirolled by sec tarianism, as to throw their influence against the oppiessed slave, seems incredible. In deed, they appear themselves unconscious of this fact, for they almost always preface their apologies for slaveliolding with "I am as much opposed to slavery as any body." I would not be guilty of slandering any one, nor hold my speech when the friends of down-trodden humanity are slandered. Let us come to the trial. Who are the Infidels ? To the law and the testimony. "By their fruits (not their profession) yo shall know them." "The fool (i. e. Infidel) hath said in his hdart there is no God." For develope ment of character see the context, "who eat up my people as they eat bread," and "they shamed the council of the poor." "When the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice." Again, "I was an hungered and ye gave me no meat; I was thirsty and ye gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me not in ; naked, and ye clothed me not; sick, and in ptison, and y vieiiod me not. ' "And this command ment have we from him, that he who loveth God loveth his brother alfo." Do not these Bible illustrations plainly prove the infidel character of pro-slavery? The infidelity of the pro-slavery priests and churches is manifestly developed in their want of confidence in God ; and in the power of truth. They are filled with fear. "The church will be pulled in pieces'. We shall have the scenes of the French revolution act ed over ; and the Methodist church will be destroyed just as the infidel jacobins destroy ed the mother Catholic church ! Oh, dear ! this Foster, I wish he were dragged through the streets, and mud !" They say he is an infidel. Why are the doors of the churches and school-houses clcscd ? . Why are the minds of the people abused 1 Why aro pro slavery priests afiaid ot free discussion, if they are honest and do not fear the right? Will not truth stand on its own basis ? Cannot an enlightened public be trusted to form its own opinions and fulfill its own res ponsibilities? If not, where aro our boasted liberties ? If we cannot meet and withstand the sophism of infidelity, where is our en lightened Christianity? Let us then go back to Popery (if wo aro not already back of back) and submit to auricular confessions, for if the priests keep our consciences, they ought also to have our thoughts. Slaveliolding religion is quite a different article from anti-slavery religion. Man in the former was made for roligion; and in the latter religion was made for man. Slaveliol ding religion is a system of fear and force. Anti-slavery religion is a system of love and choice. The former is a religion of sect and caste, the latter recognizes the universal brotherhood of man. The former has respect to tho man in gold ringj, and co'.iy apparel; the latter is no respecter of persons. The slave-holding religion makes that property, gurgling of the vasty deep as it settles over the millstone, cast by the Angel of God into the troubled sea. e demand tho abolition of slavery only on religious principles on the eternal rights of God for the rights of man are the rights of God God guaranteed. Deny our relation and obligation to our fel low men, and you deny Godyou have im bibed infiJclily ! JOHN SMITH. Friends Editors: 1 feel called upon In notice briefly friend Crce'sanalysis of a certificate of mine, which appeared in the Bugle of August 11th, in re ference to certain facts published by N. Sel by in your paper of May 15th. And first. Mr. Cree seems to be aware of the fact, that he was mistaken in charging N. Sulby with causing to be published certain items which failed to be facts, wiihnut authority, (accord ing to Cree's showinjr,) C. " interring he had none to give." Hear Mr. Cree speak for himself; " We see paraded as authority, no less a personage than P. Smith," &c. confess I am like Zacheriah, small of stature ; and as to my influence, it may not all be made known by Mr. Cree's weak eulogy. But be that as it may, whatever influence my exalt ed character or personage may give me, it shall be given to break the yoke of the o: pressed. Anil will H. C. permit me here to say, that I never will give my influence to any organization that "trades in slaves, and souls of men," as does the M. E. Church. Sd. Mr. Cree commends my expressed do sire, "at all times to stand for truth and jus. lice." but alas! alas! though I intended to be honest, 1 have been imposed upon by " the hand of Joab," (X. S.,) for, according to Cree's showing, he has been with mo in the whole matter : yea, worse than a Juab, a ty rant, that ho made me certify as I did. O, yes, he imposed on the understanding of me, his weak brother, and in so doing, acted "ri diculously absurd, and grossly immoral." Now friend Cree, hear me speak a little, if you please. I will again parade myself as authority, and will speak on the points at is sue. Sir, notwithstanding my weakness of understanding, and my subordination to N. Selby, I can declare that w hich I have seen, and testify to that which I know. Hear my testimony. The M. E. Church was made out by the speakers (friends Foster,) to be guilty of man-stealing, of robbing, of lying, of li centiousness and murder. Is not this being diabolical in the superlative degree ? say friend Cree. But sir, as to the "priesthood being most wise in wickedness," I do not mean that they are all wise, or all wicked, for as to the former, 1 have had a striking proof to the contrary, and as to tho latter, thero are noble exceptions. Nevertheless, col lect Catholic and Protestant priests together, and you will see that they are most wise in wicked ness. But further, with regard to Cree's declara tions, as set forth in my former certificate, I would say, (for the information of all,) they are strictly true ; he (II. Cree) did contend for all that I charged upon him ; all of which he has very nearly acknowledged in his last published article. And 1 would further saV, that I met Cree, face to face, talked the mat ter over, maintaining the truthfulness of my ccrtificite; and furthermore, I gave him to understand that the controversy was between him and me, and not between him and Mr. Selby. And now I will say, once for all, if Mr. Cree is not satisfied with my public certifi cate, my niaintainance of that certificate in his presence and in the presence of a number of others, he can proceed to bring the matter to a legal issue, and I will make good all 1 have certified to. What say you, friend Cree ? P. SMITH. West Middletown, Pa. Letter from Indiana. Friends Editors: Perhaps it will not be amiss to let tho readers of the Bugle know how our causo is prospering in Jay co. Ia., at which place wo had a convention and fair on the 31st of last and the 1st day of this month, which consid ering all of the inauspicious circumstances which attended it, came off well. Some of the unfavorable circumstances were as fol lows : Jay is a new county, but a few years ago its inhabitants felled the first trees, and erected the first houso, in the region where a few days ago we had so interesting a meet ing. It is a fact known to all who have ever examined the matters, that in new countries money is almost out of the question, from the fact that what money they can get goes to the older states to purchase the necessa ries of life, until they can produce them themselves. This is the great obstacle to getting up fairs in Indiana. Sickness, and rainy weather, also, operated much against us at Jay. But thero is one thing certain, that if all of the enumerated difficulties did retard our progress there, we lacked not the one thing needful in all good works that is, whole souled philanthropy. It would not, perhaps, be saying too much to assert that the friends in Jay did all they could do on that occasion. Indeed, they went far beyond the most san guine expectations. The avails of the fair amounted to 05,73. Philanthropy being equal, I would as soon undertake to raise 8000 in Ohio,as twenty-five in Indiana. Al most all of the abolitionists in Jay, have adop ted the motto, 'No union with Slaveholders. The great change produced in the public sen timent here, has been brought about in a great measure by the operations of Enos Lewis not that he is any more philanthropic than the rest, but he has more of the "gift of the gab" than thry. Wa have had several meetings in Ran dolph, Wayne and Grant counties, but it be ing mostly new ground, they were generally small. We now lime appointments ahead of us for about GO meetings, among which we are to have two fairs. We will give a brief report of our progress, when we send you names of subscribers, if you think it best to do so. Ono word in regard to the extract from my letter to V. N. which was published in the Bugle. Although there was nothing said there hut what was tiue, I should, had I writ ten it for publication, have couched it in somewhat different language. In iis'iiit the term Liberty party, 1 did not intend it to Bp ply to the party in general. It whs only in tended to apply to the Liberty party in Jay co., and a few other places not necessary to mention now. None but the one to whom I addressed the letter could fairly appreciate it. And although I had up to the time of writing the letter, received more opposition from members of the above named party, whenever 1 had come in contact with them, (with a few exceptions,) I should not consi der them as representatives of that pirty gen erally, in other places. Inasmuch as the let ter was published, I thought best to throw out a word of explanation. It yet remains to be ascertained whether those who have at tempted so unjustly to cripple my influence, are representatives of the Liberty party. I think they are not. In Grant co. and several oilier places, the Liberty party and we are on the most friendly terms. J. P. DAVIS. Camden, Jay co., Ia. ) Nov. 7th, 1816.

SAML. BROOKE, General Agent. Action of Indiana A. S. Society. It has ever been the policy as well as the principle of the American A. S. Society, to confine itself to the one great idea which it has embodied in its constitution opposition to the chattel principle. It was organized solely for the purpose of overthrowing chattel slavery, and were it to undertake a crusade against any other evil, it would be a depart ure from its original intention, and a violation of its implied faith. Various attempts have been made from time to time, to dnw it into a discussion of other questions to force ex traneous topics upon its platform. These have been uniformly resisted, resisted with firmness anj not without sacrifice. So far as the question of chattel slavery is concerned, and the equal right of all who believe in the principles of the society to labor upon its plat form, it has always expressed itself in decid ed terms, carefully avoiding a discussion of the false issues which its opponents strove to forco upon it, in order to increase its unpopu larity, and destroy its anti-slavery efficiency. It has been denounced as a Non-Resistant Society, not because it ever advocated or de j fended non-resistance, but because it refused so to act ns to wound the consciences of its non-resistant members, and in a manner not required by its constitution. Although it has been accused of being a Woman's Rights Society, its claim to that title rests solely upon the decision it made, that by its constitution a female member had the same rights as a male. Though its duty required it to oppose po- litical parties, it never became a purliy.nn ; though obliged to contend against religious sects, it never became sectarian itself. Its sole duty is to rc-form public sentiment, not to build up sects or parties, nor to oppose them except so far as they are pro-slavery. With this one idea enstamped upon its be ing, it welcomes all abolitionists to its plat form, taking no cognizance of their sex or color, asking nothing of their birth, their po litical, or their religious preferences. This is the only basis upon which such an organi zation can act with any efficiency, the only foundation upon which tho friends can truly unito in mutual effort. Introduce the Shib boleth of party, sect, or religion, and it is transformed in its character; it measures a man's abolitionism, not by his anti-slavery qualities alone, but by his opinion upon sub jects which are not in themselves connected with the question of slavery. This, much to our surprise, the Indiana State A. S. Society saw fit to do at its last Annual Meeting, as will be seen by tho following resolution, which was adopted as the last of a series: "Resolved, That we yield to none in our devotion to the Bible and uncorrupted Reli gion ; that it is our chief solace in life mid most blessed prospect alter death ; that by patient continuance in well doing, we shall inherit eternal life." This society, like tho American, was form ed for the single purpose of abolishing slave ry, and the introduction of such a resolution was an insult lo its members which should iiave been promptly rebuked. It invited all, even the disciples of Moses, the followers of Mahouimed, the Bramins of India, and the Fire-worshippers of Persia, to untie under Its banner for the accomplishment of its one greal object. It matters not whether tlie invitation were generally accepted, the principle is the same. We see that a tier having used the la bor, the influence, and the means of those who did join it, it has arrayed itself in open hostility to the opinions of the religionists we have named, has set up its standard of orthodoxy, and declared as the established faith of its members, that they were devoted to a book in which none of these believe, and to a religion which they all repudiate. It has no right as an anti-shivery society, to do this, or to establish any other than an anti slavery test. It will, of course, be under stood that we are not objecting to the charac ter of the resolution, but to its adoption by such a body. Although we are as much in favor of temperance and peace as any one can be, yet we would utterly refuse to join an anti-ilavery society that would declare its de votion to the principles of either, for we can not consent to make the question of peace or temperance a test of anti-slavery character. If the subject matter of the resolution is le gitimate anti-slavery ground, then must the society continue its existence and labors long after chattel slavery is abolished, and as an anti-slavery organization labor to produce the conviction that the Bible is the Word of God and Christianity the true faith, and that it is by works that eternal life is to be won. We can hardly believe that a single supporter of the resolution dreamed of such a thing; yet this is the only rational conclusion that can he drawn from the declaration therein made, for every thing which is u proper suhjict for resolution, is no less proper for society ac tion. If the object of tho movers and the adopt ers of it, was to narrow the platform of the society, and mako it a seiiti-evaneliail ami slavery sect, they have certainly effected it, and it has a right henceforth to be regaided with almost as much deference uud respect as the London Broad st. Committee, with its British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society ; and we are almost tempted to suspect that the recent visit to Indiana of some of the sup porters of that Committee, had something to do with the adoption of the resolution we have quoted. That Committee we know are opposed to the anti-slavery reform as it is car ried on in America ; it would have it less Catholic in spirit, more guarded in action, and more evangelical in character. The Indi ana Society has done what it could to meet the wishes of the Committee, although per haps its action is wholly attributable to one of those remarkable coincidences with which we sometimes meet. We hope that ere long it will perceive the mistake it has made, retrace its steps, and hold up a standard under which all who lovo the cause of the slave may rally, without re ferfcnee to evangelical, or un-evangelical opin- The Slave Geobue is freed, freed at least from the grasp of those who strove illegally to detain him. Would that he were as free as the Declaration of Independence declares he should bo; but this hope is vain, for the Constitution steps in and binds him with its cords of compromise, and he is but a slave at large. Honor, however, to New York for her decision; she has gone as far as a vassal of the South could go, and has done belter than we expected. Publio sentiment is changing. Let us thank God and take cour age. . j ( j The Child's Friend. This is the nams ff a monthly periodfcal containing nearly fif ty pages of reading matter; Is not up in tl... best Boston style, and edited by Eliza Leg Follen, whoso name is a sufficient warrant for the interest and utility of the work. We necr before saw a publication that came so fully up to our idea of what the Child's Friend should be. Its contents are instruc tive, and written in a style that cannot but he attractive to juvenile minds. In winning language it discourses of greal principles, and teaches in simple beauty the duty of christian love. We should be glad to aid in extending its circulation in the West ; and would advise those parents who can afford tj advance $1,50, and who desire to gratify their children by making them a handsome monthly present whose healthful influei.ee will be fell through lift, to subscribe for "The Child't friend." Should any of our readers wish to receive it, if they will forward us the subscription money, we will see that they receive a copy of the work. Specimen numbers can be seen by calling on us. Official. By the official returns of the Ohio election, it appears that the number rf votes cas; for Lewis was 10,529, making 2,118 more than King received in 1844. We of course have no means of learning how many National Reformers voted for him, but as he was the regular nominee of that party, it is fair to presume that its members gave him their entire vote. The Liberty party papers, which at the commencement of tho campaign, talked of raising a committee of 25,000, came down about election day to about 15,000, and as the returns came in, the Cincinnati Herald said that if the party polled twelve thousand votes, there would be no cause for discour agement. Seeing that they fall nearly fifteen hundred short of that number National Reformers and all counted we cannot help inferring that there is cause for discourage ment, to them. After all the labor the party has expended. 2,000 gain in two years is not much to beast of for such a State as Ohio. The party, however, seems disposed to imi tate the example of the philosophical Dutch man, who fell from the mizzen mast and broke his leg, and thanked God, not that he had broken his leg, but that he had not bro ken his neck. Depabtcre. Our friends Foster left here last week for Massachusetts, where they ex pect to labor the remainder of the year. Their sojourn in the West has been of incal culable benefit to the anti-slavery cause, and we feel assured that their efforts in Ohio have aided in producing a revolution of which we have only seen the beginning, and whose influence will form no unimportant feature in the future history of this State. Not only will their visit be long remembered by those whose fainting spirits they have cheered, or whose failing strength they have been the means of renewing, or whose minds they have stirred up to more active being, but tho opponents of the bondman's cause will not soon forget those who have ever proved them selves to be the true champions of the op pressed, an J the unflinching foes of wrong. Pleasanthv. An individual at Colrain, Belmont co., who has received our paper from the 47th No., lately returned it with the following endorsement : "I wish you to please discontinue sending tho Anti-Liberty Bugle (erroneously called the Anti-Slavery Bugle) to me, as I never subscribed for it and do not wish to read it." We have no recollection who sent us the name of the writer of tho above; all that we know about the matter, is this that his name was on our books as a subscriber, that we senthim eighteen nos. of our paper, for which somebody owes us 55 cents. Notice It would he desirable if those persons who subscribe for tho Bugle for their friends would inform them of it this would save the Post Masters and ourselves some trouble. Several such have lately been returned, and we give below the initials of the persons lo whom they were sent, and their P.

We see it stated in prtnty that the annual crop of pork raised in the U nited States, is worth three times as much as the cotton crop. In 1815, its value was estimated at $166,000,000.
