ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE, SALEM, O.
Apeing a Monarchy. Americans claim to be republicans, demo crat of the first water ; and while ihey wish to retain thi character, they are quite as anx ious to adopt the manners of the decayed aristocracy of Europe, and humbly follow in the footsteps of royally. Neither the Na . tional nor any of the Stale constitutions fur nish titles for their office bearers, presuming that the urvants of a republic are content to be designated by the names of the offices they hold. Experience has, however, shown that such a presumption is a false one, and that Americans have enough human nature about them to be "Pleased with rattle, tickled with a straw." Hence His Exullency and the Honorable, instead of plain President and Governor, Judge and Senator. This is, perhaps, al lowable in a country where those who wear titles are more numerous than those who wear them not, where Squire, and Captain, find Colonel, and Major are legion; but it avors somewhat of littleness for newspaper conductors to follow the example of Court Journals and chronicle the petty sayings and doings of the great men of the land. If James K. Polk passes through Norfolk on a Friday, or tarries in Charleston over Sunday, the important fact is borne upon electric wires and dished up in all parts of the Union with other telegraphic despatches. f General Taylor stumbles over a trunk, a score of reporters note down the ficl, and traitway a universal groan of sympathy goes up from Maine to Georgia. And then the chronicles of the levees at the While House! The Journals at St. James' could not be more minute as to how Her Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and the in numerable tribe of juvenile Princes and Prin cesses looked, walked, dressed and talked, than are many of the papers of this land in a similar detail of like interesting events in the President's mansion. The meeting of Napoleon Bonaparte with a few of the crown ed heads of Europe, was considered a mat ter of some importance in its day, but it wasn't a circumstance compared with the re cent meeting of President Taylor and Gen eral Cass, for an account of which seo nine ty nine papers out of every hundred. Taylor told Cass he was glad to see him, and shook hands with him; and Cass said, "Thank you," and added something that made Tay lor and all the company laugh heartily. Then Taylor said something wasn't a cir cumstance, which made all laugh not only heartily, but immoderately. And then after four or five other laughs these distinguished men parted. This outline, with a very con siderable filling up, forms the record of the first meeting of General Caes and 1'rcsiJent Taylor. Whether its preservation will do more to benefit posterity, or show succeeding generations how supremely silly were their ancestors of this, we leave to others to deter-niine. "I don't profess to be Consistent." This, is, by many, considered a sufficient rxcuse for almost any popular dereliction from principle. It is brought forward to jus tify flagrant violations of right, and stares the reformer in the face at every step of progress. According to our ideas of morality, a declar ed non-profession of consistency is no more for even a slight deviation from the right, than would a non-profession of hones- ty be a justification of theft, intelligent in- is attended with guilt; for he who urges in extenuation the plea, " I don't profess lo be consistent," virtually admits that his moral vision is sufficiently clear to see what the right demands. If he does not choose to do it, if he is unwilling to make the sacrifice it would require, let hiin be hon est enough to say so, and bear the censure, and not coward-like 6hrink away from the responsibility under the cover of "I don't profess to be consistent." We can point to men who are believers in the christian religion and are convinced that none can see God unless they practically a dopt it; but when their own deviations from the Christian's walk are pointed out, they ward off the rebuke with "I don't profess to be consistent Christian." This would be an admirable way of sailing through the world in the Devil's ship, were it not that non-profession of consistency does not effect man's obligations one iota. There are thousands who profess to be a bolilionists, but protest, at the same time that they don't profess to be consistent abo litionists. These, because of their profes sion, demand the rank and name of the slaves' friends; while, at the same time they are continually playing into the enemy's hands, and are curse to the cause of free, dom, but justify it all because of their non profession of consistency. They vote for laveholding Taylor, pro-slavery Cass, or compromising Vsn Buren sustain a pro slavery Constitution of Government on the one hand, and a pro-slavery Church on the other; and when they are forced to examine their action and submit them to the test of unswerving right, they admit they are not exactly what they ought to be, that they are not quitt in the path of anti-slavery rectitude, but then ' We don't profess to be consistent i the all sufficient excuse. We suppose if men are not consistent and know that such is '.he fact, they ought not Jiesboutit; neither ought the thief to pro- feu honesty, but he is nevertheless bound to oe nonest, as men are bound to be consistent. We repeat it; Intelligent, wilful inconsis tency is always attended with guilt, and he who avows it is a self-convicted criminal. The End and the Means. w ould defeat the great object of the govem excusa i ment. It would cease longer to exist as an I organization with power to crush humanity, The Union would be no more ; and slavehol consisleney ders could not use the haters of slavery for j 'he purposes they now do w hen they become to The great aim of the American government has been for years, if not from the first mo ment of its being, to cherish, support, and strengthen the system of American slavery. Its plans have been laid, and its measure a- dopted with an eye single lo this. It has pursued it with untiring energy , sacrificing every thing for its attainment. To accom plish its great end, it has often disguised its movements under a specious garb, and with diplomatic cunning, obtained from other pow ers concessions for the benefit of its favorite system. It scatters its wealth and bestows its honors with a reference to its chief end. To sustain slavery, the government must be sustained; and whatever means arn necessa ry to sustain the government, are the means which will be adopted by its supporters and the supporters of slavery. The people are beginning to understand that the support of slavery is the great end of this government, and that the means to accomplish it, must necessarily be a infa mous as the end to be attained. The ques tion which has been raised in regard to the infdlliability fif the government, its more than suspected integrity, its alledged prostitution of poii'tr, and the evident corruption of many of its office bearers are doing much to deve lope its true character and render unavailing the disguise under which it has appealed to honorable men for support. As an illustra tion of that rharacter, take the history of the present month, which embraces the ret i racy of one President and the inauguration of an other. The one was elected to office because he favored the land piracy of slaveholders, be cousjTexan annexation dark and damning as was the deed received ins sanction, and was the means necessary to the great aim and end of the American government. His administration was an ignoble redemption of the pledge under which lie was elected ; and however unworthy, was in character and spirit one with the government. The closing act of his official life done too, after the Constitution had disrobed him of his official character w.is thebestowalof a reward upon a northern tool of slavery ; and the Congress, whose existence ceased with that of the Pre sident, did, on a sabbath morning, amid oaths, and curses, and drunken orgies, and brutal fights, cease to be. All these were the means necessary for the end. The other President, who has just entered upon the duties of his office, is one who owes his elevation to no noble trait of character which he possesses. It is true, he wears the laurels of a warrior; but the blood which watered them was shed in slavery's warfare; for it was found a necessary means to accom plish the great end of the government, that not only a slaveholder, but a slavehoding warrior should beat its head, and embody its spirit. The rrd is infamous, and the means no lesss). The former could not be attained, were the latter such as honest men could sanction. The adoption of righteous means an integral part of the government. An Awful Wicked People. Should we tell our readers how wicked the folks down in Maine are, we aro afraid they would hard ly believe tu. They are no better than a nation of heathen a race of idolaters. They pretend they are Christians, but they don't worship the Christians' God they bow down to ugly images they have themselves made. And (his, not because of their ignorance, but because of their disobedience. They know that God is the Ruler of the U niverse, but they have rebelled against his authority. They know that it his hand that feeds and clothes them, that it is he who has bestowed blessings upon (hem, and given them a beau tiful dwelling place; but they feel no gratitude for these bounteous gifts, no love the Almighty Giver. The laws which established solely for the promotion of their good, they have trampled under foot. This is a true picture of their terrible wick edness ; and yet if the truth was told of oth ers, perhaps it would appear they are worse than the rest of the American people. If any should think we have done the people of Maine injustice, and been guilty of a gross libel upon thoir character J we refer such the late Proclamation of Governor Dana, who, in consequence of the wickedness his constitulients has appointed the 5th April "a day of Public Humiliation, Fast ing and Prayer." In that Proclamation he say : Occupying the relation of revolted subjects to God's universal kingdom; ungrateful to Him who daily upholds us with hi arm and feeds and clothes us with his hand and scat ter blessings and beauties all around us; disobedient to the laws he has given us sole ly for the promotion of our highest good duty, gratitude apd a proper self, regard, all demand that we at once submit ourselves to his authority, humbly sue tor pardon and res toration to his favor, and henceforth cease our wanderings after the falso gods we have wrought and fashioned by our own fancies, '"a passions. Let us then on that any, as community and individually, publicly and privately, ac knowledge our allegiance to the only true God and King, seek forgiveness for our deep ingratitude and unprovoked rebellion, and ask that he may aid na to com form our future lives to the reasonable requirements of those Isws, which he has briefly summed up in this: " Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind strength, and thy neighbor as thyself." Temperance and Anti-slavery Meetings. The colored people of Salem and vicinity design holding a Mass Temperance meeting in Liberty Hail, on Sunday the 8lh of April, commencing at 10 o'clock A. M. It will be addressed by Isaac Trescott, Jesse Holme and others. There will also be an Anti-slavery meet ing held in the same place on the afternoon of the same day. All colored person wjio can attend are earnestly invited to be present. Provision will be made to entertain those coming from a distance. It is hoped there will be a strong rally on the occation. The Hall ought to be crowded to overflow ing morning and after noon, and we trust that it will be. Though mainly intended for colored persons, we pre sume their white friends will be welcome at the meetings. Graham's Maoaiins. The April number of this work has already been furnished to subscribers. It is embellished with fine mezzotints, " The Gipsey Queen," and "The Minature." It also contains engravings of " The Church of St. Isaac's" at Petersburgh, "The Mormon Temple" at Nauvoo, and several minor illustrations. The reading matter comprises between twenty and thirty contributions from the pens of Amelia B. Welby, Emma C. Embury, Paik Benjamin, J. B. Taylor, Professor Frost, J. R. Chand ler and others. Graham occupies a high rank in magazine literature, and its proprietors seem resolved to deserve it. State Legislature. The resolution of the Senate submitting to the people the ques tion of calling a Stale Convention to amend the Constitution, passed the House on the 23rd inst. So the voters of Ohio will have a chance of expressing iheir opinion in rela tion to this matter through the ballot-box. The " women and niggers" of course have nothing to do with it; their business is not to make constitutions, but to obey them. The Western Roerve Colleoe appears to be in a somewhat critical state at this time, owing mainly to the non-payment of a large amount of money that was pledged for its support. A correspondent of the " Ohio Observer," Bpeaking of its condition, and the need for immediate action says, " It is suicidal for us now to expend our energies upon other objects to the neglect of this. If we can sustain all well. If not, surely it is not the College that should be neglected. Oilier objects will remain to be aided hereafter, but with our College il is " now or never," and " neck or nothing." Whether is it hotter that other objects be temporarily neglected (when this is necessa ry) and the College be placed upon a perma nent basis, or that by present neglect the Col lege be lost forever?" 0" Attention is claimed in Wisconsin for roads formed of charcoal, which are asserted to be more durable and costing two-thirds less than plank roads.

Would not such roads, when they become dusty, create an atmosphere almost as dark as that of Pittsburgh 1 Travellers from the Iron City might feel at home on such roads, but people generally would prefer dust of a some what lighter hue. SoMETHINO TO BE THANKFUL FOR. The Ohio Legislature adjourned on Monday last the 26th inst. The people are doubtless ful ly resigned to its demise, and can feelingly say, its loss is our gain. Senate or the United,States adjourned on the 22nd inst. We have not heard of any fights among its members since the one which occurred on Sunday the 4th of March.

The Son or Louis XVI. in Wisconsin. Rev. Mr. Porter, of Green Bay, in writing to Rev. Mr. Peet, make the following remark; ' We have all been surprised at develop? ment which go to prove that Rev. Mr. Wil liams, of this vicinity, is the son of Louis ; XVI. of France.' fttr The Liberator publishes the followinir Remonstrance from Scotland, received from William Smcal of Glasgow. It was com-j milled to Mr. Smeal's rare, says ihe Libera- tor, "by that eloquent and intrepid friend of humanity, Gioroe Jeffrey, United Presby terian minister. It is written on parchment, and with the signature makes a pretty long roll. Grateful for this limelv co-oneration and valuable testimony, we assure our friend and ins signers, that the best possible use shall bs made of it." Another Scottish Remonstrance. Ve, the undersigned, inhabitants of the Ythan district of Buchan, Aberdeenshire, and members of the Anti-Slavery Society, do res pectfully but earnestly remonstrate with the American Churohes about the countenance which they give to American Slavery. Our common humanity cries out against the sin of depriving men of their natural rights, and of making them the property of other men, to be used snd sold at pleasure; and our com mon Christianity is still more urgent in its condemnation of such an enormity. We then regret, exceedingly, that in your religious so cieties, which proless to care for the best in terests of humanity, and to spread the prin ciples of Christianity, there should beany toleration afforded to a system which outra ges both of them. If Slavery were exclusively a political question, your churches would be justified in any neutrality of conduct which they might observe towards it; but as it i plainly a question with which are bound up all the concerns of personal freedom and social mo rality, we cannot but grieve that your church es should have taken up, and in spite of in numerable remonstrances from Iheir Christian brethren all over this country, should have maintained a position, which is more favora ble to the oppressors than to the oppressed. Be your intentions and sympathies what they may, you practically give full indul gence to Ihe slaveholders; and so far as we can see, you consecrate, in Ihe name of the Divine Redeemer and Lord of all men, ihe tyrannical and cruel relations in which they stand to the injured slaves. You virtually sanction the heavy yoke which no man, much less a Christian man, is warranted to bind upon another. If Slavery be so closely incorporated with your civil institutions as to be difficult of ex tinction, we cannot imagine how it ever should have introduced itself so much into your religious organizations, as that it may not now be repudiated by these. We be seech you lo separate, forthwifh, American Christianity from American Slavery. The alliance has fostered Ihe latter, but weakened the former, a result which we are sureyou do not contemplate with satisfaction, or with any other feelings save those of self-reproach. Praying fervently to God for the prosperi ty of your churches, we have thus also, from a conviction of duty, remonstrated with you concerning an evil which, so long as it exists, will mar,-in a thousand ways, all spiritual prosperity. We address you as brethren, and hope soon to have the delight of witnessing you acting as the brethren of those who are now degraded slaves.

' Another Scottish Remonstrance. The Black Laws---Hypocrisy. " It will be remembered that the Loco Focos in the Legislature voted for the repeal of the Black Laws. After they were repealed Mr. Chase, the Senator from Butler county, in troduced into the Senate ihe following Bill: A BILL to prevent Ihe further emigration of black and mulatto persons tn.o this Mate. Sac. 1. Be il enacted by the General As sembly if the Stale of Ohio, That from and after the passage of this act, it shall not be lawful for any black or mulatto person lo come into this Stale, for the purpose of re maining or residing therein, and if any such black or mulatto person shall hereafter, in violation of Ihe provisions of this act, come in to this Stale and remain or reside therein, he or she shall, so long as he or she shall so remain in this State, be incapable of acquir ing or holding any property, real or personal therein; and shall, moreover, upon satisfac tory proof thereof being made before any justice of the peace of the proper county, as hereinafter provided, be removed and taken out or the Mate, upon the warrant ot the said luslice ot the peace; which warrant it is hereby made the duty 01 said justice to issue, and it is hereby further made the duty any constable, to whom such warrant may be directed, to serve and return the same ac cording to the command thereof.

If sny justice of the peace or constable shall wilfully negleet or refuse to perform any duty required by this act, he shall, on conviction thereof by indictment, be fined in any sum not less than twenty nor more than one hundred dollars, and (hall moerovor forfeit hi office. " Railway Speed. A good many year ago, one of tho loneliest and hardest riders that ever crossed Leicestershire undertook to per form a font which, just for the moment, attracted tho general attention not only of the country, but of tho sporting world. Hi bet was, that if he might choose hi own turf, and if he might select aa many thorough-bred horse as he liked, ho would undertake to ride 200 mile in ten hours 1 1 1 The newspapers of the day doscribed exactly how "the Squire" was dressed what ho hod been living on how ho looked how, at ihe word "away!" he started like an nrrow from a bow how gallantly Tranby, hi fuvorite racer, stretched himself in his gallop how on arriving at his second horse hp vaulted Irom one saddle to another how he then flew over ihe surface of the earth, if pos sible, foster than before and how, to the astonishment and amidst tho acclama tion of thousands of spectators he at last came in a winner 1 Now, if at this moment of hi victory, while with dust and perspiration on his brow, hi exhausted arm dangling just above the panting finnks of his horse, which his friends at each side of his bri dle were slowly lending in triumph a decrepit old woman had hobbled forward, and in the name of Science had told the assembled multitude, that before she be came a skeleton she and her husband would undertake instead of 200 miles in ten hours to p.o 500 that is to say, that for every mile the Squire had just ridden, she and her old man would go two miles and a half that she would moreover knit all tho way, and that ho should take his medicine every hour and read to her just as if they were at home; lastly thnt they would undertake? to perlorm their leat either in darkness or 111 davlight, in sunshine or in storm, "in thunder, light ning, or in rain; who, we ask, would hnvo listened to ihe poor maniac 1 and yet how wonderfully would her predic tion have been fulfilled ! Nay wogons of coals and heavy luggage now-a-days ny across Leicestershire luster and Inrth er than Mr. Osbaklestono could go, not withstanding his condition and that of all his horses. When ihe rait ways were first establish ed, every living being gazed at a passing train with astonishment and tear: plough men held their breath; the loose horse galloped from it, and then suddenly stop ping, turned round, stared at il, and at Inst snorted aloud. JJut the 'nine days wonder soon came to an end. As tho train now flics through our vordant fields, ihe emtio grazing on each side do note ven raise their heads to look at it; the timid sheep fears it no more than the wind ; indeed the hen patridge, run ning with her brood along the embank ment of a deep cutting, does not now e ven crouch as it passes close by her. It is the same with mankind.

No prompting of Ins higher nature, no voice of Infinite Mercy which conflicts with thai wicked coven am, dare he obey. But, as we bclievo him honest to his convictions, we hope he will yet see the wrong of swearing to sustain a smlul compromise, and will frankly repudiate it, and call on honest men to do tho same, Surely, no abolitionist no man who reveres the law of Heaven above human enactments, who loves his neighbor as himsell, or woijlq obey the- divine in !junclions, Hid8 ,h outcast" "Deliver ,J. ., . . u.j.f ,u :i.. the spoiled out of tbhandsof tho spoiler: "Thou shall not delivee. qnto his master tho servant escaped: frorrr bi master un to thee ;" no 0140. who feels the slave be indeed his brother,' and the brother and representative of Him who said, "In as much as yo have done il unto the least of these, ye have done it unto me," will agree with Mr. Giddings to "observe to the very letter," obligations not 10 "se orete," nor "defond,'" nor rescue" lho lave, but to "surrender him on claim of his master." We frankly tell the lave holder and the country, that "man It moro than Constitutions," or compromis es, or human laws.
