THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE.
David slew thousands of his fellow being", murdered Uriah to obtain his wife, oppressed and tormontcd his people. lived under the influence .of the most revengeful feelings, prayed for the destruction of thoso who AVer his ene mies down to tho third generation, &c But David Ira a man after Gods own heart. There fore we may murder thousand, slay those who stand in the way of the gratification of our lusts, cultivate the most diabolical feelings and yet be innocent t All ' right ' says this divine. Solomon Mid a good many foolish things, kept the largest Harem, revelled in licentiousness. Yet was the special favorite of Cod. Therefore we may soy foolish things, live with hundreds of wives, keep twice as many concubines, and be innocent ! So w-o might go on and show from tho reasoning of Mr. Smith thnt there is no crime that we may not rightfully commit. Our attention is next called to the New Testa ment : Now lionr Punl. Rom. xiii. 1 C. " Let every soul lie subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be, lire ordained of God. Whosoever, therefore, rcsisteth the power resisteth the ordinance of God : and they that resist shull receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of tho power ? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same : For he is the minister of God to- thee for good. But if tliou do that which is evil, be afraid ; for he beurelh not the sword in vain : for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute w rath upon him that dncth evil. Wherefore ye must needs Ins subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience's sake. For, lor this cause pay ye tribute also : for they are God's ministers, attending continu ally upon this very thing." Mr. Smith wishes it to be understood that these commands by Taul are imperative, and thc facts mentioned undeniable. This has been made the weapon of thc priesthood in all lands. It is made the strong-hold of despotism every where. Thc clergy use it in England, Franco, Italy, Russia, Germany everywhere to Btiflo the cry of revolt, to put down every reformatory movement. Thc tones of thc revolution were activo in tho uso of these weapons, ground and tempered to their will. And wo have it reiterated again and aain among us. We want to ask, Did God ordain all the "pow ers" that now exist as his minister t Did God ordain an abaoluto monarchy a limited mon- archy a republic ? Are Nicholas of Russia, Mcttcmich of Austria, l'opo l'iu3 of Rome, Victoria of England, Zachary Taylor of Ameri ca, God's Ministers? Are they Ministers for good t And must thc fathers of the Revolution muit the Churti.sU of Great Britain tho lie- pcalcrs of Ireland the Republicans of Franco the noble Kossuth and his brave compeers, all receive DAMNATION because they reiistcd tli " powci " i Out upon such monstrous blasphemy. We may bs charged with daring to assert our reason. We plead guilty to the charge, and call upon all to exercise their reason in thc ex amination of the facts in tliis caso. In the in- tcrprctation of theso sayings of Faul it is af- firmed first, that tho " powers " are ordained of God for good; secondly that they who resist hall be damned j thirdly, that they arc a terror to evil doers. Wc affirm that tho government under which Paid lived never was a terror to evil doers, that this government is not a terror to tho great evil doers that few governments, if any, from that of Nero down to this, ever stood opposed to the wholesale tyrants and plun derers of our race, that thc governments them selves have been in all ages tho organized rob bers and grinders of tho people that this gov ernment, and Edward Smith knows it, has been engaged in an evil of the worst and most dam ning character from the first moment of its ex istence. It has crushed out the lives and hopes of millions of Indians and Africans, to say no thing of the masses of others who have fallen beneath its influence. Yet wo arc to believe in thc teeth of endless facts, in tho face of tho world's history, that the " Powers that be " aro a terror to evil doers. Is this government a terror to men-stealcrs and men-traders, to the murdurcr and land monopolists? Is it a terror to Z. Taylor, to J. C. Calhoun, and tho one hundred and thirteen thousand men who rob, crush and destroy three millions of their brethren ? These very men aro themselves among the first in tho govern ment, so fur from being a terror to evil doers, it gives political power in proportion to tho evil done ; and the greater the deeds of blood and oppression, tho greater the honor conferred. A terror to evil doers. Aye ! How terrible the re tribution to that hoary-hcaded murderer who now occupies the presidential chair I Fourthly. A praise to thcin that do well." Nothing can bo moro untrue. Where is tho government that gives praise to them that do well ? Was it tho government under which Paul lived ? No, thoy did not praise tho best man that ever lived Jesus of Nazareth but they put him to death ! Did thc early Christians do well ? What praise did they obtain Did the Apostles themselves do well f What was their fate? How much praise has this government given thoso who aro engaged in the great work of well doing ? W. L. Garrison has done well in fearlessly declaring tho right of tho slave to his manhood. But what praiso has ho received from " the pow ers that be " ? What honors have been confer red on him ? or on tho abolitionists generally Did Torrey do well ? What did tho ' powers for him I Did Drayton a Godly a Divine act? What did these ministers of God do to lain ? Did they place him in some post of honor and trust? Did they send him to somo foreign court as the man they delighted to honor ? His tory answers I What of poor old Van Zandt Did he not do well when he sheltered the house less tho outcast ? They crushed his poor old heart, and drank his warm blood I Passing by thc thousands of Abolitionists, what praiso has the government given Edward Smith for any ; j And yet, with the Lord's sword in their hands j for centuries, tho monster has fattened and in pcculiarly creased fifty-fold ; and it must exist forovcr, if ! ' ! ' ' j I j good deed do ever did? Vet tl-U same man makes poor Paul declare that thev that da well shell receive praise. The very opposite is, and luis been true. "They arc continually attending upon tliis very thing." If we know anything of what tho powers that be arc continually attending upon, it is upon their own aggrandizement, their own popularity, tho destruction of their political en- cmies in a word, ou the loaves and fishes of of- Hoc. But still we mut obrv, and it is the dutv of Christians to support and take office in a wick- cd, inhuman, and devilish government ! Jesus Christ himself is made Ui sanction this moat terrible of positions. He paid taxes no-.: know lodged the rightfulness of wicked goeetn- ments, &o. Of course, tho only reason Jesus Christ did not hold office in the Roman Govern- mcnt, was becauso he could not get it I He would havo been content with any office from Tetrarch down to tax-gatherer. I will not or- guo this. We havo too good an opinion of thc Messiah to believe him both a liar and hypo crite. ' We believe he occupied our position exactly. He paid taxes he submitted, because the wick ed, unprincipled Government compelled him to do so. Jesus of Nazcreth was the foe of tho government, and for this cause he was put to death. He was charged with treason, and the " ministers of Ood, for good," commanded his execution. Tho next position of the Rev. brother is, that the Comcoutcrs arc only using tho Anti-Slave- ry cause for thc overthrow of tho Bible. And he complains that they do not write arguments and books in thc defence of tho Bible. Is it any wonder, if the Biblo teaches tho doctrines held by tho American Clergy in general, and Edward Smith in particular ? We publish such books as we think thc people will read, and were wo to write such Bible defences as our assailant, we believe tho people havo sense enough to let us keep them for our trouble. " Thc Bible is the sword of thc Lord God gavo us this weapon to slay tho monster with." Mr. Smith s view of Bible morals is correct. But is it true that Comcoutcrs do not use the Bible a) an instrument to destroy Slavery ? We appeal to thc thousands who hear our lecturers, and read our books and periodicals, if they aro not " mighty on tho Scriptures." But you publish no defence of the Bible no Biblo arguments against slavery Parker Pills bury writes against tho Biblo they all reject the Bible from Garrison down to Pillsbury every one of them discards thc Bible ! Such shameless profligacy is seldom equalled, certainly never surpassed. It is true, some of thc members of tho Anti-Slavcry Societies like Lysandcr Spooncr, of his own party, to whom he is indebted for tho little shadow of argument his address contains reject thc priestly preten sions set up for the Book. But we know of no man who rejects tho Book of uono who do not make a better use of it than Mr. Smith. Tho Society is charged with being responsible for " Pious Frauds." Has it como to tliis that if a man is a member of Temperance, Anti-Slavcry, or any other society, he is to be debarred from cxprcssin3 his viows on any other qucs tion ? And if ho does, is the society to be held responsible? Monstrous! But Mr. Smith says lie went into thc Depository in Ohio and pur chased l'Ulsbury's Book. In this Mr. Smith is as for from thc truth as in most of his other statements. Us hace no Depository in Ohio. Thc Am. Society has no moro profit or control of thc Salem Bookstore where we understand the books were bought than Mr. Smith has. First, he would hold it responsible for the publi cation of a book of whuhit has not the slightest knowledge or profit, then charge the Society with tho sin of a public Book-store for its sale ! And then he asserts, that the Disunion Agents aro circulating this book ; while he himself is spreading it abroad ! The keepers of the " depository " assure us that Edward Smith icho has bought it from them by the dozen. is tho only man professing anti-slavery to whom they have ever sold it, except by the single copy ! Verily, Edward, thou wcrt hard pushed ! At tho same time we would inform Mr. Smith, that when he wants any more of those books, if he will en to the trouble to enquire, ho can be fur nished also at tho Salem Book-store with as many Biblo defences and Bible arguments against slavery, as he pleases. But we must bring this article, already too long, to a close, by saying, that for a strong man, we arc surprised at thc folly of Mr. Smith's position. Wo hope our readers will bear in mind this Theologian's position, That if the government is as bad as comc-outcrs say it is, it is right to support it. What do tho comc outcrs say of this government ? That it is " leaguo with death nd a covenant with hell. Tliis you may support and bo innocent ! , B. Serious Accident. ? ? On Sunday afternoon last, Reuben Stricklcr of Columbiana in attempting to leap from his buggy (his horse having taken fright and be come unmanagablc) was thrown violently against a tree, and very seriously if not fatal ly injured. The accident occurred two miles from Salem on the New Gardon road. Several persons who happened to be within sight when ths accidont occurred, carried Mr. Stricklcr senseless and aparcntly dead, to tho house Joseph Buily. For some time no hope was en- tertoined of his recovery but for tho last two or three days Ins symptoms have been moro fa vorable. California Mails.

Few can conceive thc dpcP interest that hundreds take in the great action of Liberty and Slavery. Never in my recollection was there a timo when the ears of thc P00!'10 cre "P0" to ,ho daim" of humnnity at present. In almost every place may be found those who arc anxiously inquiring, in other than a mere sectarian sense, "What shall I do what shall the nation do to be saved :" Confidence in tho popular religion, s also in the political parties, has been mightily shaken. Tho eyes of the peoplo arc directed to other than tho aliove sources for delivcrcncc, and they seem anxiously to await tho advent of a re deemer or guide to lead them out from spiritual and physical bondage. I am deeply convinced that tho plan adopted by thc Friends west of the Cuyahoga, in visit ing and re-visiting tho different counties and towns, must result in untold good. In fact, al ready a mighty agitation has commenced, and tho cry is when will you visit us again ? After closing our meeting I went, accompa nied by Allen llisey, to Wellington, in Lonun county. Tliis is quite a thriving little village with thc railroad passing close to it. No church could be obtained for thc meeting, so thc meet ings were held in the Town Hall quite a com modious building. There is a Literary Society j comprised of a large number of thc intelligent citizens of thc place. Its regular meeting was on thc first evening of our visit to the place. A largo number were in attendance, both male and female. I was invited to address the So ciety on thc subject of Slavery, which of course 1 did. Four meetings were held in tho plact! a good deal inquiry elicited. The politicians and church members felt quite excited. No wonder where they had never heard the views of the Ameri can Society presented before. Wc sold quite a number of books and obtained ,fce subscribers for Tho Bugle. Honorable mention ought to be made of Mr. Humphry, a coinc-outcr, at whoso house wc staid, and also of Mr. llerriek, a merchant, who treated us with idl thc kindness of a truo man. They arc very anxious to have a visit from II. C. Wriyht. 1 hope he will try to make Wel lington and Sullivan in his way. Our next meetings were in Sullivan, Ash land county. Something over two years since I visited this place, and although there is but little anti-slavery of thc true stamp, still thc Free Soilers differ from those in many places. They turn out to hear, and do much to encour age. The fact is, they owe all they are to the old organization. Before Stephen and Abby vis ited there, they could never cast but three Lib erty party votes. Immediately after, tho vote rose to near eighty, and now to one hundred and fifty. I spoke on Friday and Saturday even-' ings, and preached throe times on Sunday. Tho house was filled all tho time, and the most intense excitement prevailed. Tho town seemed all in commotion discussions in every corner and store, and tavern, were tho order of thc day. Most gloriously did the cause of " Pure Reli gion " prevail in tho souls of thc masses pre sent rooting -up and destroying the old pro slavery feelings so long cherished. The churches were all closed against us. The old cry of Infidel raised. Meetings were held in every church. But in opposition to all, the glorious cause of Truth progressed mightily. In fact, tho very ctforts of the clergy to render us unpopular, on ly extends our fame and makes hundreds feci an anxiety to hear us. At thc close I obtained eleven new subscribers for the paper. From thence we went to Lodi. Thc prospect was very discouraging. Every thing looked dark. The church was there closed also. Thc first meoting in the Town House was large thc impression powerful. At tho close, a Mr. Lomas, of thc church, rose and stated the rea son why ho and others shut us out of the church, viz our infidelity. Ho read the fourth resolution of thc Berlin Convention to prove thc whole Society infidel. I explained the rea sqn of our joy in thc decline of American reli gion, &c. All seemed on our side. This bro ther quoted Paul, where wo are forbidden to bid heretics God-speed ; not so much as to re ceive them into your houses. I showed what tho tendency of such a doctrine was j that if all held such views of Christianity, every re former or tho bearer of higher truths, would be driven out from all shelter and must perish. Still he said if God commanded it he would do it. I rcpUed that if all the Gods in the uni verse commanded me to do so, I would do no such thing. I proposed to speak on thc subject of Christianity tho next day if a place could be obtained. Tho church refused, when a gentle man roso and stated that tho Free Mason Hall could be hired for three dollars. It was imme diately resolved to go there. Wo did so. I unfolded Christianity to them as a great system of Humanity. Tho people saw and were glad. At the close, Mr. Ainaworth, a professed Deist, refused to take any pay for tho use of the Hall In speaking of Christianity, a good brother of tho Wealcyan order who has not felt over good towards me since I left the church, stated that he believed Christianity was to love our neigh bor as oursclf ; and in tho true spirit told me I wanted land I could have twenty acres of his form cheerfully. I know our friend docs desire to know thc truth and practice it. I told him with thanks that whenever I run ashore, would gladly cmbraco his offer. At night tho meeting was very large. I took up tho question of the formation of a Northern Republic. Thc mooting was all attention, and , at tho close I obtained thirteen now subscribers for Tho Bugle. Tho best thing for us is the riosmg of the chujehes, and the opposition of elcrgy. - IhadaplcasantvisitfromtheCongrcgaUonal j Clergymen, at the house of Dr. Sill, at whose home I staid.

At half-nnst five o'clock. M. li mimicotedto tho Legislative Assembly thc iiuiurt iiig iiicraagc iroin me lTesulent ot tlie Republic! " Monsieur lo President Under the prnvo circumstances in which wo lire pluced, the accord w hich ought to reign among the dif ferent bodies of the state cannot be maintain ed unless by the existence ofn mutual confi dence, nnd unless they explain themselves sincerely to each other. In order to give an example of that sincer ity, I come liirward now to state the reasons which have determined me to change the ministry, and to separate myself from men whose eminent services I niii well pleased to proclaim, and to whom 1 owe friendship and gniiuuuc. In order to strengthen the Republic, mena ced by anarchy from so many sides ; to in sure order more efficiently than has been done up to the present time ; to mnintuin abroad the name of France at tho elevation of her renown, men ore needed, who, anima ted by n patriotic devotedness, comprehend the necessity of the single direction ofn firm character, and of a clearly defined policy. which does not compromise power by an ir resolution; of men, whose minds are as much filled w ith the conviction of my pecu liar responsibility ns of their own, nnd of the necessity of uction as well as of words (great agitation.) For nearly it year I have given ninny proofs of sell-denial in order that there might be no misunderstanding with regard to my reul sentiments. Without rancor against any individual or against any party, I have allow ed nicii of tho most contrary opinions to ar rive at power, but without obtaining the hap py result which 1 expected from thut arrange ment. Jn pluce of effecting a fusion of dif ferent shades of opinions, 1 only arrived at a neutralization of lorce. The utility of views and intentions was in terfered with, and the spirit of conciliation taken for weakness. 'Scarcely had tho dan cers of "the Btrect been over, when the an cient parties were seen again to elevate their colors, revive tlieir rivalries, nnd ularm the country uy rousing dismiumidu. Jn the midst of this confusion, France, un easy becutise she cannot see any guiding bund, seeks the hand and will of the elected of December the 10th. But that will "cannot be felt unless there lie entire unanimity of ideas, and of convictions between the Presi dent and his ministry ; mid unless tho As sembly itself joins in lire thought of the na tion as expressed in the election of the Ex ecutive power. A wliol system triumphed on the 10th of December,' for the name of Napoleon is a complete programme in itself. It means at home, order, authority, religion, and the wel fare of the people; abroad, national dignity. It is this system that I wish to cause to tri umph by the aid of the Assembly end the people. I wish to bo worthy of the confi dence of tho people by maintaining the" con stitution which I huve sworn to observe. wish to inspire the country, by my fiiir, straightforward deuling, perseverance and urnuiess, with a confidence that business will revive. The letter of the constitution has certain ly a great influence ou the destiny of tho country, Lut thc manner iu which it is exer cised has perl laps even more. The longer or shorter duration of power contributes powerfully to the stability of things, but it only by displaying ideas and principles that a government cuii succeed iu persuading so ciety to reussure itself. Let us, therefore, again raise up authority without iuterteriug with real liberty. Let us calm Jho apprehensions that are felt by van quishing bud passions, and by giving to ull noble instincts a projter direction. Let us strengthen religious feeling, without aban doning the conquests of the revolution; and we shall save the country in spite of the par ties, the ambitious, and even the infatuations, wliich our institutions may contain. LOUIS NAPOLEON BONAPARTE." ! if I The Journal del Debuts, Bays : All the mcmlicrs of the Cabinet xiionta- neously declared that the President was per fectly at liberty to choose ins Ministers as he thought fit, but that in their souls ami con sciences having fulfilled their duty with zeal and good faith, alter the lust vote of the ma jority, they could not tender tlieir resigna tions. M. Louis Bonaparte then gave them to un derstand that they no longer iossessed his confidence, and that lie intended to cull other persons to his council. On retiring, the Min istersare said to have declared, with a lauda ble anxiety which does them honor, that uu til the new Ministry was formed, they would remuin at their iiost to watch over tho direc tion of affuirs and the public safety oliserv- ing, However, to the President that thev thought that iu the present state of tho pub lic mind a ministerial crisis could uot, with out greut danger, be prolonged more than Hours.

In fact, so important is the action of thc approaching Winter m the politics of our State, that every man should feci interest enough in it to see that his neighborhood is supplied with the proper information.
