" of T. n. Morning Herald, True, Mr. Herald, each voter is responsi ble for these laws. Whigs, Democrats, Li berty party and Native, you all join together in making them ; end, although some of yon are rpposed to slavery, yet when you set about making laws, nnd look around upon your as sociates to see what kind of company you are in, and, discovering a part to he slaveholders, you shrug your shoulders nnd say well, well, I must abide by such laws as we may mutu ally agree upon; such as tho majority shall adopt, I must support ; why then, do you m;;ko a wry face because you incur the guilt of selling the young nnd the old through the means of statute law, w hen nl the same time, you do not raise your voice against being in volved in the same guilt, by means cf a cer tain agreement, called the Constitution of the United States ? We say toe, "if the South must bo permitted to traffic in human beings, let it bn done on its own responsibility, but let not the free States (a bat a paradox to call them so,) be connected w ith the sin and shame of protecting it in that Iridic. "J.'.l such a United States ('institution be repcu'el. The Herald also says : "The following account of a ei.ld blooded and unprovoked murder we cut from an ex change paper. Tho unfortunate victims were guilty of In'ing their freedom belli r than their tyrants. The deed is spoken of, without any sympathy for the sufferers, with commenda tion cf the fiendish perpetrator:-. Shooting down men nnd women, like dogs or beasts of prey, may not be murder by tho law of slavery. W o know what it is by the law of Cod. I'r.EAiciNn tp A Gaxc; o? Ncnrtnrs Two Women shut and twu Wounded .V of some time past tho eiiizcns of Ihe Third Munici pality have been aware that a considerable gang of runaway negroes had congregrated the swami) In the lauborg W ashington, w here they lived upon what they could scrape together at night by thieving nnd contribu tions upon their friends in the citv. On W ednesday afternoon a party of ten or twelve gentlemen, some living in ihe Second, and some in the Third Municipality, whcrtiad lost laves, determined to brum nil the gang. They accordingly sallied forth, armed with fowling pieces loadcj with buckshot, and reached the habitation ot the negreos. I hero were about fifteen of them, male and female, and at the time they were surprised, they were in tho act of eating supper. They were im mediately summoned lo sufreuder, but refus ed and took to their heels, whereupon a vol ley was fired at Ihein, killing a man and wo man, and badly wounding two women. 1 he rest escaped. The men had a number of muskets but did not fire them. The two wc nn;ii were brought to town Ihe same night. and it is not known whether their wounds arc mortal or not." We agree with nil tho Herald has said about the ntrcciti' of tho murder. Hut sup pose its candidate for Ciovcrnnr had been elected, and these slaves, resisting the efforts to capture them, bad collected around them large numbers of insurgents. Tim Louisi- anians, unable to subdue them, ti;e Governor of that State had called upon the General Go vernment for aid to suppress the insurrection, Would Sainl. Lewis, as Governor of Ohio, have complied with the requisition of the Pre sident, in accordance with Ihe obligations his oath to support tho Constitution, and rais ed troops to be marched to Louisiana to shoot theso identical persons? And in lhat event would it bavo been murder to shoot them? Or, on the other hand, would he have perjur ed himself, nnd altogether refused a compli ance with tho requisition of the President, and the requirements of his oath, and follow ed the example recently set at Obcrlin, in an application of Liberty party morality? An application where its theory cf morals was reduced to practice. S. Tho following essay sent us at our request was read at the celebration of the 1st of Au gust, in Oberlin, by Lucy Stone, a member of the institution in that place. Why do we rejoice to-day? U the In law a is it let l Wo rejoice to-day, not simply because tho genius of freedom is now presiding and scat tering blessings, where eight years ago the Demon of slavery brooded; nor merely that where ignorance and heathenism then pre vailed, the light of science and Christianity is now dawning ; nor yet becauso to-day tho anniversary of the moral and political birth-day of eight hundred thousand human beings, hut we rejoice in the grander fact, that in ono of Ihe largest, and most influen tial kingdoms of the world, a public senti ment exists, which shivers the chains of slave, and lets "tho oppressed go free" which practically recognizes tho oqual broth erhood, and inalienable rights of man. Not that every heart does not thrill wilh deep emotion, and leap for very gladness, view of long lost rights restored, of family tic3 renewed, of the rich, though wrecked heart's wealth returned, and of Iho blessings that cluster around the improved condition tho slave that was, of tho man that it. who docs not "rejoice w ilh exceeding great joy," on account of theso things, has no right to claim kindred with humanity. But rejoice more in tho grander fact, becauso influence, not confined to the British West India Islands, will havo a lasting influence in behalf of universal freedom. The doom of slavery everywhere is sealed in that pub lie sentiment which caused England to reach out her hand over the broad Atlantic, to up from his deep degradation, and make con scious of his manhood, the bondman pininj there. The influence of that event, will of is tho in of Ho wo its lift be wide ns tho world, nnd longer than the stream of lime. Like light radiating from n common centre, it will move onward and on ward, dispelling on every hand tho darkness and mist of oppression, until the glad sun light of freedom, shall find access to every heart. By it the moral pulse corrected, will send its healthful throbbing, through socie ty's whole frame, until the fearful paralysis which now so fatally benumbs all its pow ers, shall bo removed, and then, tho true friends of God nnd man. with steady hand and clear moral vision, may apply themselves sure of success to the execution of their holy purpose, in behalf of human freedom. A rectified public sentiment always has been, nnd must cvr be, Iho sovereign reme dy for existing evils. It matters not. though tho stronj arm of Iho law, may bo around systems of wrong, nor though they may be as hoary with age, as with guilt. Let but the indignant frown of a virtuous public be concentrated upon t'acm, and they must inevitably perish. Thus have false systems of religion been destroyed. Thus was the monster Intem perance crushed, nnd thus will tho fr.ul spir it of slavery with its long train of worship ers be banished. The scroll cf history is full of facts which reveal the omnipotence of public opinion. It has but to speak, and it is done. It has but 1 1 stretch out its sceptre, and uncounted millions b w before it. Is there not rcca.sion, then, for us to rej.iico tn-diiy, when the lessons of tho past the spirit of the age and tho Mgns cf tho limes, give promise, that this power is coming into ihe great moral battle-field, on iho 6ido of right ? Though tho warriors arc now comparative ly few, though alone in tho contest, they need not be dismayed, for truth and justice are on their side, and around them, unseen by mortal eye, are "chariots of fire and horse men of fire," led on by Hint who has said that "the battle is net to the strong. " James Russell Lowell has beautifully and truly said that "Mankind is on; inspirit" that "Whether conscious or unconscious, yet Hu manity's vast frame Through its ocean-sundered fibers feels the gush of joy or shame, In the gain or loss of ono race, all tho rest have equal c!aini" Such being the case, when nn event like that which wc to-day celebrate occurs, when a nation dehumanized, brutifiec1, stand up on humanity's broad platform, a new bond ol common interests, and common hopes, unites them to us. Instead of ranking wilh"four-footed beasts, and crcaping things," they may now claim God as their father, and man, made only a "little lower than the an gels," as an equal brother. Instead of see ing in the grave, the last homo nnd resting- place alike of themselves, and the beasts that pinsn, iney may now iook lorwarJ to an endless existence, and to an inheritance in world where man cannot be changed lo brute. If wo except the sccno of Calvary, the event which brought redemption to a world. what other can compare with that, which eight years ago, at Ihe still hour of midnight. released from the thraldom of man, eight hundred thousand human beings? Then indeed no earthquake trembled un derncath no lemplo vail was rent no dead issued from their graves, but slavery's dark pall was torn in twain, and the great soul man from ils moral charnel-houso arose, and mingled its loud amen with God's approvin voice, which was heard echoing from island to island, in the deep rolling thunder. Contrast with that event, tho freedom con tested at the point of the sword, and found only by wading through seas of blood, with whet transcendant glory does the ono stand out before us, while tho othor is blackened deeds of violence and outrage iiillicted'by man upon his brother man. Well may those for whom so great a boon was so peacefully obtained, send up their long, loud shout of joy to-day. No wonder that tho fires of freedom there burn brighter, and more unquenehahly. No wonder that tho slave upon our southern border, is anima ted with the living spirit of liberty. Tho ccean indeed surges widely between him and tho islands of the free, but in deep roar, he hears the knell of slavery, and nerves bis soul to bear nobly up yet a little longer. While we mingle our heart-felt rejoicings with the bond and tho free, to whom ibis is ( no of thrilling interest, wo will also with theirs, our thanksgiving and praise Him through whom alone, we are enable to celebrate so glorious an event. Willi theirs, we will unite our supplications before tho ihrone of the Eternal, that from our slavery-cursed country the chain may ho bro ken lhat every trammel of body or mind, iho wido world over may be sundered, and that tho lime may soon come, when grand chorus which to-day swells up so free ly from the islands of the ocean, may find response in every heart. Is it not fitting lhat here too, while hearts aro encouraged, and our hands strengthened, wo should pledge ourselves anew, each to the other, and all to God, that esteeming no toil too arduous, or danger perilous, wo will labor to intrudueo a cornel public sentiment, on tho great question of hu man n'tkff, and that we will do lhi, as instrumentality by w hich the day of jubilee for liie slave shall bo hastened, mi I th.it wo wiil not abate, one jot nor tittle from our ef foits, so long as ono fetter remains unhiukcn.

This is identical church whose 'principal man, and class-leader is a slaveholder, to a considera ble extent, and last year sent one of house-servants, w ilh her infant, to Hope Slattei, and sho was sold South, leaving broken-hearted husband and father, and that makes life desirable, to fill the cullers this 'pious good man.'
