This question, so often asked and so often
answered, finds a response in the annexed ar

sexes and of all aires, will bo derived from
an officer of tho United States, acting under
a law of ihe Union, for which each voter in the

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
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?
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
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
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
If wo except the sccno of Calvary, the

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

Horrors of the Slave Trade.
A work has recently been published
England, on the Colony of Sierra Leone,
Western Africa, by Win. Shreeve, a
years' resident in thd employ of government.
Mr. Shreeve says lhat many iin.tauees have
occurred of slave-dealing by liberated . J'n-ttii.i
themselves, and ho preuy .-Irong'.y intimnti
that most of iho liiili-ii iuereh..nls on

are guiily i.f aiding and aliening it.
Wo extract below Mr. Shreuvn's descrip
tion, from personal observation, of tint horrors
witnessed in a slave ship on tho passage
across the Atlantic. Il is a revolting picture,
it is true and tho mind can hardly conceive
of such horrors. But while Iho slave ImII'.c

scenes and should urge upon our govern

w hen they I'm I fault with slavery and slave
holding apologists, "oh, slavery cannot be so
bad a thing as yon represent it, for don't you
bear of the Treat revivals of 'rriVo.-i at the
South 1" Wc heard this argument made use
of by one if the mtnU'.crial members of the
recent Wheeling Synod, as an api logy for
our 'dear Southern brethren.' The following
extract of a letter from li iltiniore, will give
an idea of the kind nf revivals and "religion"
they have in the South, and the character
the hyjoerites who lead the exercises.
If Northerners would only treat all notices
of rerimU of "r!iginl', among slaveholders
while they continue to hold their giasp upon
ihe throats of their victims, us mere hypo
critical cant, and consider them as ihey
should he criminals of the worst stamp, w

thieves and counterfcitcts, inasmuch as they
are least criminal.
"Tho 'Sun' announced a few days since,
lhat there were revivals of religion in pro
gress at a number of the Metiiodisl churches.
Having a curiosity to know w hether it
religion or Christianity, I dropped into one
the churches, and found that there h id been
no misrepresentation, for it was really
samo old kind of religion, that is so abun
dant hero and elsewhere. The 'seekers'
wore one man and three women, with about
fifteen of clergy and laity about Iho altar,
some singing, some praying, and all shout
ing at ihe lop of their voices. 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.' This was done
secretly as possible, but it was soon known.
These men are getting sore nn this subject,
and if public, opinion can be kept advancing,
lliere will bn a very pereeptililo change

to work itself into every public body of men,
for whatever purpose convened, on
sides of tho Atlantic, and Southern reading
men must necessarily have it brought before
Iheni more frequently than ever, and the sub
ject of abolition will soon loose ils hideous-
ness. on, at the North, can go on as
as you pleaso ; but w e must be content
ed to go step by step, adopting tho
which are tho most practicable, not always
consulting our own wishes and ideas of
out yielding much lor the good ol tho cause.
as a lew hasty movements would retard
de. elopement much, till wo can act
i. ours in 1 ruth, N.
Doctor Ucccher, in giving an account
the proceedings of the delegates in forminn-
this Alliance, says:
"True, we were stuck occasionally,
we all knew how to back out and star'i. an-ain.
If occasionally the remains of old 'ouiuan
tur spilled over, wo knew how to stop it
resorting to prayer. 1 uey laughed at us,
we all prayed on, and in no inslai.eo did

The chief question that "a.'i.-.V" them
tmt whether slavuholacrs should bo cast
of churches into w hich they had been adinil
li d in good faith AW, whether it was
duty of the members nf such churches
withdraw from them en account of slavehold
ers being members. But whether slavehold
ers should be admitted into a ncto christian
union then funning. "And in this question
the Doctors of Divinity got ttuc'if " and

Ei i si-op Climate on Cri.nR. Tim
climate of !'r ru has a singular i if. ct on tho
color of the different races. It bleaches the
black man into the mulatto, and bronzes Ibo
white man into the Indian. It dwarfs tho
European in statuie, in the second or ihird
generation, and deprives him of lire and cn
erify. Tho ualivo youth, in their boyhood,
exhibit intelligence and force, but ns Ihey
grow up they become feeble in body and ir
resolute in mind. The Indian who inhabits
the ravines and table lands in the Cordiller
as, is tho only one who preserves bis vigor.
Tn his half civilized enterprise and hardi
hood, Peru must look fur her regeneration.
