The Bible---Father Mathew.
SALEM, August 19, 1849.
Friend Johnson : I am on tha platform or
an A. S. Convention, in Hawley's grove, I
havs just offered and commented on the fol
lowing resolution :
Knotted , That if tha Bible Is not against
Slavery ae Father Mathew and the pro-slavery
priests of this nation say it is not then
it ia the duty of the friends of Justice and Hu
manity to go against the Bible.
Dy Bible I mean just what they mean who
thus quote that book to justify their iniquitous
support of a criminal and cruel indifference to
the outrages perpetrated upon the American
slaves. Twenty years ago, the American
Church and Clergy aid "the Bible inne
iiont slavery." They were met by the as
sertion, " if the Bible emotions slavery, the
Bible is opposed to self-evident truth, and is
therefore a self-evident falsehood." Now
(hey have lowered their tone, and say, "the
Jlible eays nothing against slavery." The
fibove resolution meets this in the only way
in which dt ought 4o be met. It is immaterial
what the Bible docs or does not say on the
uVrject, so far as the duty of all men is con
cerned respecting slavery. The voice of God,
speaking through every element of our phys
ical, social and spiritual natures, has settled
this question. I would as soon go to the Bi
ble to learn my duty to a starving .of drown
ing man, as to the slave.
And Father Mathew lias covered before
the demon of American Slavery !! it is sad !
ft is pitiful ! A man who, while in his own
dear green Isle, could so loudly and no ear
nestly .protest against oppression at home and
.abroad, and .especially against Ameiican Sla
very, declaring even neutrality or indifference
to it to be a heinous offence against justice-,
humanity, and Christianity j and then the mo
ment he lands on our shores, allying himself
lo the sjave-ure&ders and tslave-holde rs of the
land, justifying himself and them by quoting
tli Bible, and heading the millions of his
fellow-countrymen and sectarians in this
country in their hostility to the Anti-Slavery
cause, and to the oppressed American! It is
imean, it is cowardly; it is most unjust, and
iTecrea.nl to -the character he has so nobly earn
ed in the cause of Temperance. Better for
ihe American Slave, for the cause of Human
illy, and for Father Mallrew'a good name, had
he remained at home, or llit ho had been en
.gulplied in -the Ocean ere landing on these
la-very-cursed shores 'to tram incense to the
American Moloch. And is he going lo be
the guest of slave-breeders and slave-traders,
and to be waited on by slaves 1 Is he going
to 'be d umb respecting the horrors of slavery 1
lit is ; and will -ere long bitterly ruo Ihe day
hen lie gave bred to that counsel that has
caused -him--so bitterly to err.
fjr The friends in ieu Lyme always
true und hearty in the cause have voted
itinanitoously, we understand, in favor of tho
"Young People's Convention. This is just
what we expected. Now friends ! not only
in New Lyme, but in every part of the Slate!
go to work and make the Convention what
it should be in numbers and spirit.
07" The Liberator comes to us this week
'freighted with the noble utterances of Bur
leigh, Parker, llallou, Phillips and I.'inerson,
at the great Worcester Celebration. Such
speeches so full bf poetry, cloqnenco and
philanthropy so replete w ith high and en
nobling thought where else could they have
been heard save in a gathering of' the ever
faithful and devoted Abolitionists of the Old
Bay Stale? We must give extracts next
OrThe thanks of the Abolitionists of Sa
lem and vicinity are due lo Benjamin Haw
lev, Esq., for his kindness in permitting
them to occupy his splendid grove, without
fee or reward, lor the recent Convention and
Pic Nic. -In a place where all, or nearly all,
the meeting-houses of lb various sects are
closed' against -anti-slavery meetings, such
an act of kindness and liberality is too pre
cious to pass unnoticed. Thanks are also
due lo Mr. Craft Coast, who cheerfully
gave Ihe friends of Ihe cause access lo his
lumber-pile for Ihe supply of Ihe necessary
.eats. Neither of these gentlemen, we be
'lieve, is in sympathy with the Disunion move-
juent, but it is greatly lo their credit that they
did not therefore refuse to do us a favor w hich
Juarrow sectarians so often w ithhold.
DicnitV. When the President arrived
(Lancaster, Pa. a 'rough looking man'
ays the Tribune's correspondent climbed
.the side of the car in w hich he was silling,
.exclaiming at the top of his voice, as he ex
pended bis hand, "Here's 'Old Zach I
-the old coon!" Instantly a stampede was
.made for that point, and cries of "Old Zach
.give us your paw !" were oil lhat could
heard, A dignified reception, truly, for
second Washington.' Bah !

Ws submit to The Tribune that it is bound
iiy the principle here laid down lo orv. Per
jsb the Constitution of Ihe United Stales,'
for surely it exalts Ihe whiles and depresses
the blacks. Come, Mr. Tribune! eVpand
jour lungs and join the Abolitionists in shout
'ing, ''No union with slaveholders.'
Cleveland True Democrat.
' Perish all Laws and Constitutions which
would exalt the few and depress the many.
Down with any government of party in it,
that will say, lift up one man and tread down
another." True Democrat.
And yet Ihe Demnrral swears allegiance to
the U. S. Constitution, which, by the ac
knowledgment of its late Presidential candi
date and of almost the whole body of its par
ty, does, by a base 'compromise' wiih slave
holders, 'tread down' three millions of its
countrymen into theduil. Will Mr. Vanghan,
for w hom, though personally a stranger, we
have long fult a sincere respect, explain to us
the process by which he reconciles such a
course to his conscience 1 Does he believe
in tho Jesuitical maxim, ' Do evil that good
mny coino'I If nol, how can hn swear to
support the Constitution, ' compromises ' and
all, in order to obtain power lo prevent Ihe
farther extension of Slavery 1 Will he an
swer us these questions with his characteris
tic directness and manliness)
There is another point lo which we
would respectfully solicit Ihe attention of the
Dinmcral. Wo understand it to endorse the
sentiment of one of its correspondents and of
the old Liberty parly, that no slaveholder
should bo esteemed fit for office," How,
then, can it support a Constitution which
brings slavcliolding communities into full
partnership with Iree StateR, not only recog
nising ihijM as "fit for office,' but even al
lowing them lo lie represented in proportion
lo the number whom ihey enslave J Is it not
the very acme of self-slultificaiion to say, thai
slavehoUling Slates are fit for governmental
pai!nership, and yet that individual slave
holders ought not to have their share of the
offices 1
Senator Walker. It is staled on good
authority that the resolutions passed by the
Legislature of Wisconsin, instruciing the
Senators from that State to support tbo V i 1 -mot
Proviso, were introduced al ihe in&tiga-
lion of Walker h'uusulf, who expressed hi
fears that his colleago would nol bo trun to
Freedom without such instructions. Ii is a
singular comment upon this Senator's dis
trust of that colleague, that the latter left a

Diabolical Outrage.

every white man in Ohio lo tiny 1 0 wiih

slavery and the murderous malignity of caste
are yet rife in at least one of the Counties of
ihe State.
A riot occurred at Morrow on Saturday
evening, whicn win probniily give some
trouble lo Iho parlies engaged in it, A theft
was committed by a colored man named
Henry Wadkins a convict formerly in the
Penitentiary who was immediately urresled
and commuted lo jail. I bis aroused the in
dignation of sundry persons in ihe villugtt,
who met on r riday and resolved 1l1.1t every
negro should leave Ihe place in one week
theroaller. IVotlce was accordingly iiven.
and on Saturday, as we understand, nil had
left with Iho exception of two, Charles Casey
and his wile, who hud been assurid thai
1 bey would be suffered lo remain. The ar
dor of the mob I'jr such we must character
ise every body of men who set the laws ol
the country at dt nance and meditate and cifin
u it violence on the persons and properly of
others was quickened by llieir wrath, and
on Saturday night they changed ihe lime ol
the exodus of tin) Casey family and demand
ed that they should gird up their loins, pul
on their sandals and march loriliwitli. Cas
ey refused lo obey. Al ten o'clock Ihey ap
proached the dwelling of tho latter, and com
menced an assault wiili stones and -clubs.
Casey took a position ul the door, armed with
an axe, and his wifo guarded the window,
club 111 hand. noon llio window was
smashed in and a breach made through the
door by (he missiles 01 the assailants. Au
entry was llien attempted by one of ihe mob,
liul iho moment his head .protruded ll.rougli
Ihe door, Casey lapped him with Iho back of
Ihe axe, and he felt senseless to llie ground.
Instantly another mob-head was poked In and
met a similar blizzard. These repealed and
effectual rebuffs brought the mob to a parley.
Terms of uccuiumodaiion wero proposed,
w hich resulted in giving Casey and Ins wife
five minutes start, to make their escape.
They 'closed in the oveilures of mercy,' thus
graciously offered ! The waich was held
up. Ala singlo bound, Casey and his wife
leaped out of the house, followed by a show
er of stones. Fear gave suppleness lo their
limbs, and away they went up the road like
deer pursued by a pack of wolves. As soon
as ihe lime was out, the mob siarled in pur
suit, vengeful and eager for Ihe piey. Hut,
fortunately, Ihey were led on a false trail.
Instead of continuing on Ihe liopkintvilte
road, as it was supposed they would, llie
blacks left Ihe road, waded the Miami, and
found a sure refuge in the cornfields. The
fight lasted some three hours, during which,
Casey and wile defended themselves with a
bravery and nerve worthy the highest com
mendation. Their only sin, so far as we can
learn, was thal'Gud had given iheu a black
skin! They were Africans! What an of
fence lo justify a riol and expulsion from ihe
town! We are told lhat every article of fur
niture in the house was destroyed, and six
teen dollars in money stolen ! The mailer
will, of course, undergo a legal investigation,
and we therefore fotbear any further comments.
The 'Do-Nothing' Abolitionists.
Hon. John G, Palfrisy, member of the
last Congress from the Middlesex District,
Mass., was invited to attend the Celebration
at Worcester on the 3d inst. In a letter ex
plaining his' reasons for non-attendance, af
ter expressing his dissent from the doctrine
of Disunion, he says t
No difference, of opinion from your friends
on any question, however important, will, I
hope ever blind me lo ihe noble courage,
constancy nnd disinterestedness with which,
alter Ihe manner lhat seemed to them wisest,
ihey have struggled Bgainst the giant sin of
Ihe present day, or make me forget the great
value if their services in awakening the pub
lic mind Id the tnnrmUg nf He ceil. Few of
your Society, I suppose, are opulent i hul I
hive been recently told, on good authority,
that Ihere are those who expend for its ob
jects, year by year, as much as for the sup- j
port of themselves and their families. I
know of nothing in lbs history of philan
thropic action to parallel a pecuniary liberali
ty like this, w hile lite sacrifices w hich have
been made in other ways have been such as
perhaps lo manifest even more the sincerity
and force of the sentiment that has prompted
them. No right mind, however it may be
dissatisfied -with your methods of action, can
fail lo admire its vigor, fearlessness, and
generosity. In these qualities, you have
shone 'as lights lo the world.'
This is the tribute of a high-minded, hon
orable man, who, though a politician, is not
blind to llie importance of moral agitation as
as a means of abolishing Slavery. The tes
timony of such a man affords an honorable
contrast to the sneers at Disunionists as 'do
nothing' Abolitionists, so often put forlh by
ihe witlings of party. Fidelity to principle
under adverse circumstances must always
command the respect and admiration even of
those w ho occupy n lower plane of action in
llie field Of Reform. Friends of humanity!
lei us never bo tempted to swerve for one
moment from the path of strictest Rectitude.
Let Ihe faithless devotees of parly cry,
'There's a lion in tho way you can never
succeed;' do we not know that Truth is
mighty ibat what ought to be dono can be
done 1
Example of Hungary.
The Magyars of Hungary, whose struggle
with Iho combined powers of Austria and
Russia the 'vorld is now watching wiih
breathless interest, and for whose success the
most devoted 0 'lends cf peace hourly pray,
before taking up arms in their own defence,
decreed Ihe emancipation ami future equality
of all the subject races throughout their
country. They did nol dare lo sirike a blow
at their oppressors till (bey had solemnly
promised to unbind tho chains of llieir own
vassals. They have (hue given to the world
he highest evidence of their sincerity, and
hence, notwithstanding our strong disappro
bation of war, we cannot help feeling for
them the liveliest sympathy. - ll will be seen
from the latest intelligence lhat they are car
rying every thing before them, and we are
not without hope that Ihey will establish, in
the midst of tbo darkness and despotism
which surround them, a Republic on whose
altar may bu kindled the flame of a purer
liberty than has ever yet been embodied in
any governmental organisation.
Alas! that we should he compelled to hang
our heads in shatuo at llie contrast between
our ow n country and semi-barbarous Hunga
ry. Severily-three years have elapsed since
the bloody Revolution which separated us
from the mother country, and yet, so far from
decreasing the emancipation of our slaves,
their number has increased from 400,000 to
3,000,000, nnd the combined influence of
Church und Stalo has been devoted lo Ihe
maintenance of Iho system w hich is crushing
them to the earth. Our very Constitution is
a Bulwark of Slavery the charter to which
menslealers point with exultation as authori
ty for their deeds of villany !
