Those who expected advanced action on tlio subject of slavery liy tho American Hoard ol' Commissioners for Foreign Mis sions nt Pitts-field, will be disappointed by tlio rciiort of tlicir proceedings'. The wholo ni'iy be summed tip in three words the; did nothing! cn, they met, tlicv talked, they sing, they prayed, they heard reports, they listened to addresses,, they learned that their churches still received and felluwshipped slaveholders, they listened to letters from their niisrionarius defending the employment of skive-labor, and they then adjourned hav ing dune nulh'ng ! Yes, thut expresses the precise truth. They did nothing to relieve their missionary operations from the odium mid em of conniving at oppression. It seems to havo awakened groat joy in ninny minds that such should have been tlio rev.: t ol llie meeting. Tlio New York Observer is iuce stacies nt the masterly inactivity, the let alone, the do nothing" policy, which, to the hon or of multitudes even of it3 own readers, it a few months sinco recommended os tlio proper course of Northern Christians on this subject. Those members of tho Hoard who feel fluttered w ith the praises Bounded thro' th;,t speaking-trumpet of slaveholders, will of course be delighted at the commendations bestowed. Those, however, who justly sus pect thut what suits the Observer and the South, cannot be very definitely or practieal- iv omtosea lo slavery, will erieve mat me Board has allowed another opportunity toes cape of correcting its position. For our selves, we cannot say that we are much sur prised at the direction winch matters took. Vhy should any definite, tangible action have been expected ? According to the old maxim, "Ex nihilo nihil fit." (From nothing nothing conies') If the lioard do not actually feci disposed to separate their missions from slavery, why should we expect them to do it? V. nera there is no disposition, there will, ot course, be no action. Wo hope to publish in a short time the letter which tho Choctaw mission addressed to the Prudential Committee, that our read' ers may have a clear understanding of their side ol the question. A more complete spe cimen of sophistry we never read, by which however, we do not mean to deny that seems good reasoning to those who wrote and to those who endorse it. e shull en tor upon no refutation of it, however, till our readers have tnc document before tliein Mr. Treat's letters, which take ground with which in the main we fully concur, were not endorsed by tlio lionnl, the Prudential Com mittee, whoso views they embody, statin that it was not necessary or desiiuble, inns- iiiutu us nicy were not uinuing on mu mis sions, but were only intended as suggestions This strikes us as a remurkuhle position such a subject. Tho Committee huvo been uniusing themselves uud the public with mere discussion with tho missionaries, quite interesting in its nature, but very unpractical in its results. As tho Committee uulbrtu r.ately did not succeed in convincing missionaries, the latter aro to be allowed have their own way, notwithstanding "suggestions" of the former! True, Prudential Committee tliiuk it is about time that slaveholders should be kept out of mission churches, and that tho missionaries frhould ceiif.o using clave-lubor, but us they cannot mi.ko their agents understand thai me living ill the middle of the nineteenth century, things must remain as they are. Chis;ianitv lias not been developed UiOiigh to become intolerant of oppression. W v honestly grieve over the inaction of Iourd, because we believe that it will injure y.e prospects and be detrimental to the sionary cause.

We tell the Committee that the attitude of Board on the subject of slavery keeps young men from engaging in its service, while Ihc very existence of slavery in land prevents" others from seeking a fiild labor elsewhere, they liclicvhig that there woik to be done at homo more important than that abroad. We know of one man whose heart was set lor years on missionary work, hut who finally decided remain ut home, iu whose mind the question of slavery bad the greatest weight. Ho that he could honor God more by tailoring the l uited States and throwing bis influence against that system of oppression, Church and State should be purified from polluting presence, than by leaving millions ot heathen Imudineu at home disgrace to the Church, and going to his life amnrg heathen (.broad. Then aga:n the missionary f pit it is well-nigh suppressed as it is seen in its technical forms to conic into collision with justice and humanity. ounit men have been accustomed to - lew the missionary cause os the highest and ho liest of causes". It was sacred in the ossocio- ions of their minds, connecting itsell with nil that is self-sacrificing nnd benevolent in Christianity. It is so no longer. The action and wont of action of tlio lioard on the sub ject of slavery os fairly brought before them in their own missions, lias been such as to show that the technical missionary spirit may be allied to inhumanity ond opposed to plu- l.inthropy. Such a result is fatal to the cause t missions. It eats out the very neon oi ue- otion to the work. Ouco array in the pres ent age the cause of missions against the progress ot philanthropy, ami lioni it up ie foro tlio world as on abstract, mystic spiritu- lism, busied onlv with lramcs and fervors, ond it is dead. We are no believers in ici missions, any more than in on unspiritual, in fidel philanthropy. The two elements must be conjoined, ond pietism and philanthropy go hand in hand to subdue this world to Cod. This lesson our great benevolent societies with oil their excellencies aro slow to learn. They must learn it or fail in their work n9 the promulgators of gospel truth to the world, becoming more pieces of ecclesiastical ma chinery to work out the ends of a blind and useless formalism. God can never be truly moored bv nravcrs.idms-giviiig.and preach ing, whilehis imago imprinted on even tho owhest and most degraded and opprcsseu man, is treated with contempt. What Profit ? The stubborn resolution with which the American Hoard of Foreign Missions has resisted all agitation respecting slavery, and supported slaveholding churches among the Indians, is well know n. It seems incongruous to uringtne opcranonsoi u mis sionary organization to a pecuniary test, but as missionaries are necessarily supported by pecuniary contributions, and as churches, like parliaments, understand the coercive power of a refusal of" supplies," it very read ily becomes a money question. While, then, the lioard alleviate "hundreds, and arouse tho suspicions of thousands, in the free States, what is tho measure of support derived from the South? The last "Missionary Herald" gives us on item. The total receipts tor the month of July, were 28,V.!5.13. Of this sum, only $3,411.51) como from slave States.

It was that brother Brooks and his wife, Miss Coburn of the Canada mission, were soon going out to labor on ground with Mr. Thompson, who is already there. Much interest seemed to bo mani fested in the success of the Mcndi mission, and much sympathy and love were express ed lor brother Brooks and his wife.

The St. Louis Union of August yuth, tells the story ot a slave, a young colored woman, who was discovered concealed on board one of the steamboats from St. Louis to Cincinnati. The inhuman captain, supposing her to be a fugitive slave, secured and conluied her, until leaving Uin- cimn.ti on bis backward trip, intending to re turn her to her master. Learning that sho was to be taken back, while passing down tho Ohio, sho broke from her confinement, jumped overboard and was drowned. While she was struggling in the water, the boat was stopped, ond great exertions were made to rescue her, but she sunk ahd was lost. "Whether she was a slave or free," says the it, i'.tAta LhaAiAlJ'J:!' fatal act, and w ho she was, or where she be longed, remains a. secret." This is one of the numberless and cease less horrors hourly begotten by the American slave system, as like unto the system which gave it birth, as ever w as offspring like the parent. It is one of the fruits of our unholy Union and compact with slaveholders. Shameful and cruel as was the act of that captain, he was only obeying the spirit of the American law, and the instructions of the American church, and not on his hands alone rests her innocent blood ; but every man who sustains that uod-uclying I nion, or that corrupt and fidso church, may well ask w hether lie is guilty of her blood.

Jarretl, of Wilminirtnu, we lenru thai an ntroeioos and daring attempt was made near that town on Saturday hist, to kidnap a five colored woman bv (he name of Ann Brown. and carry her into slaver'. The kidnappers were Marcy Fountain, a negro-trader, of Italtimore, and Isaac Clarke, a constable in Wilmiiiiiton, assisted by Charles Lowman, a shoemaker, of Wilmington, who was pro- bahlv the mlurmcr in the case. Fountain held a power of Attorney from Elijah F.. Massev, of Kent Co., Md., who lays claim to Ann Brown as his slave, and em ployed C larke and Lowninii to aid him in his infiunous business. At U or 10 o'clock on Saturday morning, hnving supplied them selves with handcufls aud Willi carriages, one of which was hired at Porter's livery stable, the rufhans repaired to the house of Jacob liihuul, just outside the city, where Ann tin land's sister) resided ; they went through the house, Clarke leading the way, seized Ann in the yard, and attempted to drag tier to the carriage. This they doubtless would have done, but for the intrepidity of llilaud, her brother, who rushed to her defence against the armed man-thieves. Lowman struck Ililand with a pistol, but the latter drew an axe, and told them they might take his sister belore a magistrate, but his life or theirs should be sacrilicd before thev should put her into the carriage Clark then proposed to take them both in the car riage to a magistrate, but he refused, saying she should walk if she went nt all. The slave-catchers lindinif the resolute spirit they had to deal with, yielded and took her on foot before the Mayor. Alter the constubie, wun Ann and her brother, had left, I ounnun, to satisfy those who had witnessed their high handed proceedings, exhibited a watch, ana told them that they had arrested her for stealing it. Before Mayor Hufiington, P. S. J olinson, L.sq., appeared as counsel tor the defence. Hero the rulnaus said not a word of the charge of thelt, and alter a few hours spent m investigating the case, an adjourn ment was hud till ii o'clock, iu order lo ol taiu further evidence. At 2 P. M., the case was called up in the presence of a large number of most respectable citizens, when it was found that the Mayor hud ordered her commitment to prison during the adjourn ment, and thut before the case was fully heard. Application was immediately made to Judce Milligan, who (.'ranted a habeas corpus to have the woman before him on Wednesday, the 2(ith at 10 o'clock, A M. The caso cumo up on Friday morning, the 26th ult buvinir been postponed from the 2(iih exertions ot the friends ot lrcedom, most sat isfactory evidence had been obtained that Ann Brown wus legally free. Before the trial came on, tho kidnappers, finding they had little hope of gaining the case, attempted to sell the woman to her friends for one hun dred iollurs. This was promptly refused. "Not a dollar not a cent will we pay you,' was the noble reply of Thomas Garrett to Fountain s urgent solicitation lor a conipro- be ol up ol a i use. r Hiding tliey had determined men to dcul with, and learing lor their own saiety. the whole robber gang left lor JMnrvlnnd be lore the trial came on, and consequently no claimant appeared in court. Hie judg heard the testimony m her Ueliall and ut clurcd her u free woman, remarking ut the same time thut lie should have discharged her w ithout any evidence, on account of the illegality of the commitment, even had the cluiuiunts appeared. 1 Ins is the second nine an attempt lias been made by the Masseysto reduce this woman to slavery, the first being in this city several years since, when they were defeated in court, and narrowly escaped an arrest lor perjury for their false swearing. At this lime, they doubtless expected to iukc her by force, not counting on the interlt-rcnce of her brother. We understand that the in- liuuous McCreary, the head kidnapper in the ubdue.tion of Thomas Mitchell, was actively engaged iu this case. It is but justice to add, thut much credit was due to the Acting Committee of the Old Abolition Society lor their active aid in se enriiiL' evidence and counsel in behalf of the accused ; and also that they are ever reudy to render pecuniary or personal uid, or ud vice in such cases. and of llie is is per fection well or ganization Im us gra vitation of of sense This Christian Country.

It is church which makes its own bosom a den for such wickedness, and a nest for till un cleanness, w hich we ore called to sanction and sustain bv our fellow ship, or to tolerate by our silence.

Hence aristocracies whose lion's share wns not disputed as long as they com- mouicu men- snare of mental aud physical capital to the common stock.

Some of the advocates of " the peculiar institution " in the South, are continually rendering themselves ridiculous by their in sane zeal for slavery. The wholo world will soon begin to laugh at them. They remind! us of a nest of hornets which are so busy in whetting their stings, that they can scarce ly take the necessary measures lor sustaining lile. There they sit on their nest, watching in all directions for some insult, their very stings aching for want of something to do. If an unfortunate little breeze comes straying among the leaves, or an unhappy shadow passes over the nest, fury fills their magnani mous little breasts, i hey dart out in all di rections, aud woe to the unfortunate breeze or tho unhappy shadow ! It seems that somebody has written a tale which has raised the quills upon the fretful porcupine of tho South. " Wac's me for somebody!" The author of the tale, and every one connected with tho magazine in which it appeared, have been earnestly invi ted to come to the Soudi and be hanged.
