THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE.
Poetry. To the Reformers of England. BY JOHN G. WHITTIER. God blcs yo, brothers ! In tho fight, Yc'ro waging now, yo cannot fail, Tor better is your sense of right Thau kingcraft's triple mail i Thnn tyrant's law or bigot's ban More mighty U your simplest word i The free heart of an honest man Than crosier or tho sword. Go let your bloated Church rchenrso Tho lossou it has learned so well ; It moves not with Its prayer or curao The gates of Heaven or Hell. Let the State scaffold rise again Did freedom dio when Russell died ) Forgot yo how tho blood of Vano From earth's green bosom cried ? Tho great hoarts from your olden time Are beating with you, full and strong j All holy memories and sublime And glorious round yo throng. Tho bluff, bold men of Runnymead Are with ye still in times like these ; The shades of England's mighty dead Your cloud of witnesses The truths yc urge are borne abroad By every wind and every tide ; The voice of Nature and of Ood Speaks out upon your side, Tho weapons which your hands havo found Are those which Heaven itself has wrought, Light, Truth, and Love : your battle-ground Tho free, broad field of Thought. No partial, selfish purpose breaks The simple beauty of your plan, Nor lie from tlirono or altar shakes Your steady fuith in man. Tho languid pulse of England starts And bounds beneath your words of power ; The beating of her million hearts Is with you at this hour ! And Thou who, with undoubting eye. Through present cloud and gathering etorm C'an'st see the span of Freedom's sky And sumhino soft and warm Oh, puro Reformer ! not in vain Thy generous trust in human kind i Tho good which bloodshed could not gain,. Thy peaceful zeal shall find. Press on, !; tho triumph shall bo won Of common rights and equal laws, .-. The glorious dream o Harrington, And Sidney's Gaol Old Cause; .... Blessing tho Cotter and the Crown, Sweetuing worn Labor's bitter cup And, plucking not tho highest down,. Lifting tho lowest up. Tress on ! and we who may not shoro Tho toil or glory of your fight, May ask, at least, in earnest prayer, God's blessing on tho Itight ! From the Anti-Slavery Standard. To BY JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL. We, too, have autumns when om leaves Drop loosely through the dampened air, When all our good seems bound in sheaves, And we stand reaped and bale.. Our seasons have no fixed returns, Without our will they come and go, At noon our sudden summer burns, Ere sunset all is snow. But each day brings less summer cheer, Crimps more our ineffectual spring, And something earlier every year Our singing buds tako w ing. As less the olden glow abides, And less the chillier heart aspires With drift-wood beached in past spring-tides We light our sullen fires By thq pinched rusldight's stoning beam We cower and strain our wasted sight To stitch youth's shroud up, seam by scam, In tho long arctic night. It was not so, we once were young, When spring, to womanly summer turning, Her dewdropg on each grassbladc strung In the red sunrise burning. We trusted then, aspired, believed That Earth could be re-made to-morrow, Ah, why bo ever undeceived ? Why give up faith fur sorrow ? O, thou whose days arc yet all spring, Trust, blighted once, is past retrieving, . Experience, is a dumb, dead thing, . Tho victory' iu believing. The Butterfly & the Baby's Grave. AbutterBy basked on a baby's grave. Where a lily had chanced to grow j Why art thou here with a gaudy dye, Whilst she of the bright and sparkling eye, " Musslccp in tho churchyard low ? Then it lightly soared through tbo svnny air, And spoke from itt airy track ; I was a worm till I won my wings, And she wham thou mouracth liko a seraph sings j Wouldst thou call the blest one back ) Rest Not. Best not inglorious rost Vnnrrvss tho man, Struggle 'tis God's behest ! Fill up life's little span With God like deeds it is the test Test of the high-born soul, And lofty aim The test in history's scroll Of every honored name None but the brave shall win the goal ! Miscellaneous. From the Liberator. V& Tho subject of tlio following fkctc.li, which we copy front tho Christian Kcgisttr, was a thorough friend ot ICclortn. Mie lino borne, her protest against n corrupt Church by separating from it: nntl in circumstances which would have been to most n grcut temptation, always identified herself with tho most radical and' hated of Reformers. There is nothing exaggerated iu the beautiful tri bute of Mr. ITullips. MRS. ELIZA GARNAUT. It is linrd to comply with your request for some further notice of the character of Mrs, Uurnuiit. Those of us who knew her feel it impossible to tell her worth, w hile the words which to us ure tamo and halting, will bo rend by strangers ns the usual exaggeration of nn obituary. I know her long and inti mately, and tlioueh it has been niv lot to know manv rare and devoted men and wo men, 1 cun truthfully nay, the sight of lier duilv lili) lias culun'ed mv idea ol tho reach of human virtue. J am indebted to her for a new lesson of practical Christianity, end I reud now the instances of singular heroism Olid disinterestedness with aunoiuted eyes. Mrs. Garnuut wus the second daughter of John and Aim Jones, and bom at Swansea, ules, on the fcftli day ol April, IclU. While she w as at school licur Bath, her parents died, leaving to her care an elder sister, then sinking in consumption, and a brot her and three sisters younger than herself. To theso she wus father, mother, brother and sinter, wutching over their interests and devoted to their welliirc till years separated them to va rious fortunes. Subsequently she married Richard Garnuut, the son of u French emi grant, a mechanic of great taste and ability. They came immediately to America, and fi lially settled in Boston, where, not thrco years alk-r her marriage, she lost her hus band and eldest child. Lett alone, w ith her infant, in a strange land, without means, and with very few friends, sho niauiicstcd tho same energy and trustfulness, the same put ting aside ol'all regard lor her own comlbrt and profit, which made her last vetirs so clli clenl and beautiful. Alter an interval, slio connected herself with tho Moral Helbnii Society of Iluston, and labored in its causo many years; und when worn out by tho va ried etlbrts which her restless benevolence added to the care und confinement of the of fice she held, became the matron of the Home, established in Albany street for the shelter of orphan und destitute children. Exhausted by watching over two infants w ho hud died of the cholera, with no hope of sa ving them, but with till the tenderness of a mother's love, she lell herself u victim to the disease, on Monday, the 3d of September, aged thirty-nine years. This is the outline of a long life, crowded I mto lew years, whose every day was filled with more acts of love and service to others, than most of even the devotedly benevolent arc auio or privileged to Uo in years. The. Societies with which she wus con- nccted were devoted to special objects; not so her heart, Her ceaseless activity made light of cures, which were enough lor tlio whole strength and tho whole twelve hours of others; and found leisure to seek out and relievo till kinds ol distress. Hers was prac tical doing of good, and no service was too humble lor her to lieriorm. Children left in cellars by drunken parents, and brought to lier so loathsome anil diseased that other be nevolent institutions, though rich in munici pal bounty, refused to take them in, she re ceived ; not to give to domestics, (she hud none,) but to wash, tend, cure and serve her self. Women aud young persons for whom John Augustus could find no shelter else where, be curried without a doubt to her and in those muiiv cases where a woman's influence und aid are indispensable, Mrs. Gurnaut was his adviser and companion. To the forsaken icthn of seduction or temp tation, she has again and again given up her own room and bed, hoping that, if under her eye, she could strengthen their loitering res olution, and give them back to reconciled families. Again und again deceived, sho has gone on with loving iiuticncc. and been rewurded ut last with abundant success. Women ruined by love of drink, and passing almost ull their time iu the House of Correc tion, fled to her lor refuge from themselves and lived usefully and virtuously, alter strug gles and liills which would huve tired out any heart and any fiiith but hers. Jn hun dreds of towns are little ones w hom her ex ertions have suved from utter neglect or the worse influence of abandoned parents, aud provided with homes und instruction. In sane girls, lor whom sho has found one shel ter ulter another, tiom w hich morbid suspi cions would drive them, ulwuys cunio back to her and rested content w"hile under her rooC The morning alter her death, it wus pitiful to w itness tho bitter grief of homeless and friendless pcsons, gathered by the new who felt that they had lost both parent und friend. She died watching over what all saw wore the death-beds of children, from which so many tied, whose parents she had never seen ; and in this, her death was the exact type of a lilb given, so much of it, to those who from vice or extreme youth could not repay her evcu w ith gratitude. A young woman, she put aside ull thoughts of insult, or dmiger to herself; in rtachiug any sho sought to suvc. Strong in a good purpose, she entered fearlessly, ulone, the most uhundoned huunts of vice, ventured on shipboard ut night to snatch a victim from certain ruin, mid, plain iu speech, feared nei ther station nor wealth in her rebuke. Wherever Mrs. Gamut it was, might faid to bo tho vanguard or lieuevoleut ellbrt. Was her society devoted to children, still she could not shut her door to want, even adults. The emigrant who had neither ac quaintances nor work, the criminal who needed uid, tho fugitive slave, the sick wo man, were all sheltered, or visited, or provi ded for. Many years of devoted lubor hud made lier known to a hu ge circle of friend less beings, und 111 every new trouble thev ... I ll'l ! . . .. . -. lieu iu lier. niiu engaged ui Moral Ke form, she did us much lor the iutemneruto. und gavo her nights to sick chambers, w here, bub jiur unweurieu love, none lut the phy, siciun ever entered. Belbro tho most louth some uiHcusu, in ine presence or the most resolute vice, neither her fuith nor her love ever lultered. When others thought they hud done euough, and gavo up, she still perseve red, forgiving seventy times seven j und the iioor wanderer seemed to fi el there was one heart that would never bo closed against her, aud in every passing hour of virtuous resolu tion sought her, with full assurance of sy tit- I ' i j ; s, iu pnthy nnd aid, like a child who knows a mo ther's heart will never cease to hope ; nnd in many cases was her faith sustained. Much doubtless was ow ing to the fascination of a manner, recognized by every one who came w ithin its' influence. Jt was the fitting ex pression of a heart overflow ing with love for every human being. Her own means, tho little presents to her chihl, the compensation paid her, were used to enable the institution sho controlled to go on ( ond they w ore given away as freely as the fluids specially committed to her for dis tribution. She never looked upon any thing as her own. Dr. Follcn has inado a beauti ful uno of the sculpture of St. Martin sharing his cloak with a beggar. Tho emigrant, the intemperate woman just reformed, lioth too iioorlv clail to cet places, the sick trirl without friends or means, for whom this lov ing stranger has taken the shawl from her own shoulders, the shoes from her owii feet, could havo pointed to a daily pructice of the sumo love. Her life was cheered with, some tcstimo uies of gratitude, and a thousand histories of touching interest lie uurtcil in tier grave. Sho was a child to the last in her untloubt ing fuith, in her cntiro unconsciousness of her own peculiar traits, and in the joyotis ness of her spirits. Hut though a child in her Jove and her unselfishness, she was profound' ly alivo to all the great questions of reform and social improvement. Token early from school, lite had been her only education, and with no leisure lor books, she had learned through her allections ; and here, as our wi Rest statesman has said, 'the heart wus the best logician.' Sho saw the right with the unerring intuition of a good heart. Neither sect, cluss, color or country aflbcted her feel ings. In education, social reorganization, nuti-slaverv, the amelioration ot punishments. the advancement of woman, she took a deep and intelligent interest, und felt how slight was tho ellect of all her toil on evils which grew from fidse principles. Sho had good intellectual ability, sound practical sense, rare judgment, sagucity that few could deceive, that probed every case, and did, what sho did, intelligently. Bereaved in so many of her relations, sep arated from her kindred, constantly iu tho presence of so much sickness und want, she was yet always young, the sunshine of any circle, enjoying lilii intensely, happy under ail circumstances, full of health, her day per petual gladness, us if the pathway hud been us full of heaven as tho heart that trod it, Wo say of some, and very truly, that theirs is a Christian life ; but it is very rare that, us in tins case, the traits ot any 0110 arc so un alloyed as actually to remind us of! to recal, the traits of the great Muster. I never kuew one so unconsciously penetrated with the thought that she 'came not to be ministered unto, but to minister.' Sho literally ' cured lor nothing,' but like Luther's bird, rested ull her interests on the Infinite Love, uller which her own lile und spirit were so closely copied. Tho marked peculiarity of her character was this entire giving up of herself to others, uuu iiiu ucuuiy 01 lier peneci unconscious ness of iu We soo many unselfish, mauy disinterested, many devoted uersons. liut neither word, uor ull combined, ut ull describe Mrs. Gurnaut. . What others do with effort, or, at most, from a sense of duty, in her seemed nature. Yet not the heedlesa feu rosity ut childhood or sentiment, but the hurmouious workiugof nature which existed only to tcrve otliers as naturally as a tree grows. So utterly unconscious wus she of this active and unceasing dcvotediicss, that she neither seemed to think liersell ditlercnt from others, or to deem they ought to leave the usual way of the world to be like her. See hud that rare union, great tenderness and greut firmness of churucter. Though lier heart bled at tho sinht of wo. vet she laced and ulleviuted sulleriugs of the most iiorrm description w ith a spuit lull ol cour age and nope. Sho died, worn out, doing all her kind heart dictated, and all the wretched needed, but inure thau one person's strength, or the means placed in her hands, were sutlieieut lor. Sho felt she had herself still to give, und died hi the sacrifice. All this, so feebly described, was the work of one young wo man, lell iu a strange land, without means and without friends. Those who knew her, huve tho joy of remembering thut they did not entertain this angel unawares. Her death practically breaks up the society she served. 'I'l...

What sho created, what nothing but her unique char acter sustained, dies with her. As wus said of tlio good English Bishop, ' Surely tho lile of one liko this ought not to be lbrgotteu. 1, who saw and heard so much of it, shall, I trust, never recollect it without being better lor it. And if 1 can succeed in showing it so truly to the world that they ulso muy bo tho better tor lor it, I shall do them an acceptable service." Yours truly, WENDELL H1ILL1P3. Caution to Travellers. Northern peo ple, when travelling through slaveholding States, should bo very guarded how they address the negroes, as they not only expose themselves to detention und trouble, but to severe penalties. A case in point happened hero on Sunday night last. Two strangers, one from New York und the other a cosmo polite, employed two darkies to show Hmm the city. Taking them into tlio bar-room of tne tiougti at Keady Hotel, the first men tioned indiscreetly asked one of the negroes in the presence of Mr. Wheelv, the proprie tor, if he would go to New York with hint. The negro replied, he wo'ld go any whoro with him. The lour then left the Hotel together. The question having lietu asked with uii parent seriousness, Mr. W. informed officer Haley of the conversation, who iiiiii.e,liiPlv went in pursuit, and with the assistance of uuomer waicumun, overtook and arrested the Whole party.

EDITORIAL ADDRESS. the Whilo venturing this step in the universal march of periodicals, let it be understood that 1 am not anxious to dccluro myself a mental Joan of Arc, bearing especial mission to save tho people in their noble war against ignor ance and wrong. 1 simply prepare a plain feast where the viands will be of my own choosing and some of my own dressing. 1 hojie if what I provide be wnoicsome buu relishing, 1 shall have a host of friends at my board whose kind words and cheerful encour agement will keep me in a proud and honor able position at the head of the table. 1 have been too long known by tliose wnoin I address to feel stranae in addressing them. My earliest rhymes written with intuitive impulse belbre hacknicd experience or politic iudtrmcnt could dictate their tendency, were accepted and responded to by those whose good word is a " tower of strength." The first uctive breath of nature that swept over my heartstrings awoke wild but earnest melo dies which I dotted down in simple notes. When I found that others thought tho tune worth learning when I heard my strains hummed about the sacred altars of domestic firesides, aud saw old men, bright women aud young children, chaimting my ballad strains, then was 1 made to think thut my bur ning desire to pour out my souls measure of music was given mo tor a puriose. Jly young bosom throbbed with rapture for my leeliugs met with responsive echoes from honest and genuine humanity, and the glory of Heaven seemed partially revealed when 1 discovered that 1 hold power over tlio ullec tions of earth. The same spirit which prompted my first otteinnts w ill mark my present one. What 1 have done has found generous support ; let me trust that what I mav do will still meet the kind hand of help. I have full confi donee in my lricnds, und believe if I olle them the combination of rctilitv and nmusc nicnt, they will freely tuke the wutes I bring, and not think worse of mo for mixing freely with them in the market place ot activity and lubor. I am anxious to give my feeblo aid to the gigantic struggle lor intellectual elevation now going on und fling my energies und will into a causo wliere my heart w ill zealously animutc my duty. It is too true that there ore dense clouds of ignorance yet to be dissipated huge mountains of error yet to be removed but, there is a stirring developement in ' the muss' which only requires steady and free com munion with truth to expand itselt into tnut enlightened and practicul wisdom on which ever rests the perfection of social und politi cal civilization ; and I believe that ull who work in the field of literature with sincere desire to save the many by urausing genuine sympathies and educational . tastes, need make httlo prolcssiou ot tncir service, lor "tho people" havo sufficient perception to thoroughly cstiinato those who are truly with' and ' tor' them. 1 nnlv nak n trinl.

The steamship has brought Europe, Asia, and Africa, into our neighborhood, und will greutly multiply our connections, as Merch ants, Travelers and Politicians, with all parts of the world; so that, much more than ever, it now becomes every intelligent American to be informed of the condition and changes of loj-eigu countries. And this not only because of their nearer connection w ith ourselves, but because the nations seem to be hastening, through a rapid process of change, to some new stute of things, which the merely politi cal prophet cannot compute or foresee. Geographicul Discoveries, the progress of Colonization, (which is extending over the whole world,) and Voyages and Travels, will be favorite matter for our selections; and in general, we shall systematically and very fully ucrpiuint our readers with the great de partment of Foreign uflairs, without entirely neglecting our own. While we aspire to make the LIVING AGE desirable to all who wish to keep themselves informed of the rapid progress of the move ment to Statesmen, Divine, Lawyers, and Physicians--to men of business and men of leisure, it is a stronger object to make it attractive to their w ives and children. We believe thut we can thus do some good iu our day and generation ; and hope to make tho work indispensable in every well-informed family. We say indispensable, because in this day of cheap literature it is not possible to guard against tho influx of what is bad in taste and vicious ill morals, in uny other way i.....

We hope, that by winnowing the wheat from the chaff," by providing abundantly for the imagination, and by a large collection of Biography, Voyages and Travels, History,, und more solid matter, we may produce st work which shall lie popular, while ut the same time it will aspire to raise the standard of public taste. fX5" Letters in commendation of the plan and execution of the work from Judge Story, Chancellor Kent, Dr. Bethune, and Messrs Jarcd Sparks, XV. II. I'rescott, George Ban croft, nnd George Ticknor, have been pub lished in former advertisements. POSTAGE. When sent with a cover it ia ranked as a pamphlet, and costs 4 1-2 cents. Without tho cover it comes within the definition of a tiewspajier, given in the law, and cannot legally be charged with more than newspujier postage. MONTHLY PA ItTS. For such as prefer it in that form the Living Jlge is put up in, Monthly parts, containing four or five week-, ly numbers. Iu this shape it shows to great advantage in comparison with other works, containing in each part double tho matter of any of tho Quarterlies, But we recommend the weekly numbers, as fresher and fuller of life. 1 lie volumes are published quarterly. Each of them is equal to three ordinary octavos. Orders should be addressed directly to tho, publishers. . .. . E. LITTELL CO., Bostqx.
