THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE.
Letter from E. A. Lukins.
CONCORD N. H. May 31st, 1851.
To tht Editor of The Duple, I)bah Fiukn d :
Having by tome unaccountable michnn o, left a
letter designed for your columns, in Boston, and
not feeling disposed to go over that story again
tvtn for you, I concludo to keep you in susponso
awful h it may be, in regard to that, and go on
to apeak of other mutters.
I feel bound to attend to our interview with
La Roy Sunderland, notwithstanding I have ul
rcady claimed moro than my due, in morn tlinn
column of experience with tlio 'rapping.' I
am not going to excito your imagination or
your disgust, or any feeling that happen to bo
assailed with this matter by a recital of my
particular experience, deeply interesting to my
elf m I confess it has been, hut to do my duty
in defending both Mr. 8. and hi) daughter o
far as I am concerned, from tho ehnrgo of
'fraud, deception, charlatanism' &c, which
people make against them without knowing
ny thing about it only that they are connect
ed with tho most startling phenomena of our
If I have any capacity at all to judge of char,
actcrj Mrs. Cooper is as simple hearted artless
person as I ever saw. Their connection with
this thing is involuntary, often disagreeable and
naver any more than merely consented to, and
now that such a whirlwind of excitement 1ms
boon raised and her namo coupled with every
epithet of acorn and reproach, it has become an
intolerable and frightful boro to her. I smiled
involuntarily on being introduced to her, to sec
the littlo childudi looking creaturo who has
been charged with concocting this stupendous
achcroo of deception and for what! People
say to mako money I
Ah truly I bclievo I never ilil sco a Yankee,
or Indeed many others, turn away col lly when
thcro was "red gold for tho winning,' audi
don't mean to say Mr. Sunderland is an excep.
tion, but in tho four visits I made them, I hud
einplo proof that even gold may cost too much
Jf I never bad it before. The annoyance to
which they are subjected, tho wear and tear of
nerves and patience, as well as having their timo
so completely occupied Biukcs the dollar, even
tho almighty dollar, a poor compensation ; but
most sapient cavillers, what will you say to tho
fact that wo wcro invited to come us often as we
chooso and bring as many hencst interested en
quirers as wo choose, without money and with
eut price, while at tho same time crowds eager
to givo their dollar for tho glory of 'txj:o,ing'
Mr. Sunderland as they thought, but in reality
themselves ; and also others w ho desired merely
to grutify an idle curiosity, were sent away to
givo us an opportunity to examine and test the
thing to our hearts content. Wo had full and
free pomissiun to tukc any table w o pleased,
ct it whoio wo pleased, and to hold the bunds
and feet of tho medium,' while demonstration
ssrere being made. Besides lor uiy ow n particu
lar and private satisfaction, I consider in) sell in
common with many others, endowed with an
internal perception of tho present a of very
gross and vulgar trickery, jf I cannot trust it
implicitly in more complex and minute matters.
If any should inquire, with commcuduble cau
tion or a wisdom chairaiugly sly, who ' the com
pany were, I nave the pleasure of saying, on
my honor you mav venture to trust them, it
was Messrs Thompson, Garrison, Sargent and
Wright, George Doughty and myself; tho for-
mcr of whom, were not long ngo severe sceptics
As to Mr, Sunderland's gcnurnl character it is
as open to you as to me, I know no more about
it, nor is it my business to enquire ; it is only to
say that if I am capublo of understanding or
seeing anything, ho has nothing essential to do
with it, and was in another part of the city
whilst wo wcro having tho most wonderful
manifestations. To those who arc determined
to twist everything into cvidenco of deception,
I have nothing to say, only you have undet ta
ken to account for thoso phenomena trillion!
witnessing them, which wc feel that we hardly
dare do, with it. You can scarcely Le awuro
of the magnitude of the task you have imposed
upon yourselves, Ono says ' why should Sun
dcrland bo in the room ? that is very auspicious,'
another says I consider his going oct, just as
the manifestation commence, very much
against him.' Dear friends you havo clearly
proved that it won't do for him to bo a'nyirhue
whilo they are going on, so try to possess your
souls in pcaco until you see something of it,
which I fear never w ill be w ith your consent.
However in this ago of wonders, perhaps, if
Mahomet will not go to tho mountain, the
mountain will rise up and come to Muhoinet,
uch things have happened I believe in this
A to the manifestations being what they
purport to, I havo nothing to say, this is not tho
place for a discussion of that question, and lie
aides I do not wish to give what I havo w itness
edand roccived, anywhere but in the uuictuury
of intimate confidence. I feel that of what pe
culiarly concerns me I cannot speak elsewhere,
tny duty is dono, w hen I say that nothing tan
bo more evidont to ino than this, that if any one
is deceived thoy arc, and thut they arc placed in
A difficult and painful position, which a little
knowledge of their circumstanacs, a littlo thought
nd human feeling would enable any one to
jerccivo. If they refuse any one a sitting it is
interpreted as unwillinguoss to submit to inves
tigation, or if in a quarter of tho city where
their expenses aro great, they do not submit to
very kind of personal annoyance, their house
used as tavern, and their time at the mercy of
thoughtless callors, without any compensation,
. they aro mercenary. But enough of this.
. Tho Now England A. S. Convention com
menced during a few days of perhaps tho hot
test wcathor often experienced in New England,
and in consequence of tho exclusion from Fan
uil Hall, and being crowded into ono entirely
too small for tho occasion, our "firebrands,"
. tho' far from being extinguished, burned a littlo
- feebly the two first days, but on the evening of
the second Theodore Farker made speech that
Isttpposoyou w ill see in print, as I believe lie
has promised ta write it nut. if he docs not you
will suffer a great loss, if he docs, a little one for
nno ought to see and hear him to have tho full
value of it. I heard him the Sunday previous,
preach in his own pulpit such a sermon as wc
dontoften hear from pulpits I assure you ; sub
ject, " Tho profitableness of right, and unprofita
bleness of vrong," of course not using tho word
profit in tho ordinary sense.
The last day ot tho Convention I shall never
forget. Tho trial of thoso who aided in tho
escape of Shadrach wos pending, and Thomp
son while speaking upon a resolution touching
it, poured out his soul in some of the most tre
mendous bursts of eloquence I ever hoard.
You seemed os in a dream whilo that storm of
passionate inspiration roso tip and rolled abovo
you like tho voico of tho cternnl ono himself
from tho clouds. You must pardon
this apparant extravagance but you should havo
had SinV torn coat before you os I had, and
been conscious that such a trial which was to
settle once for all in ISoston w hether Sims and
Shadruch aro to he called men or classed w ith
beasts and creeping thing, was going on. You
should have seen his countenance, his eyes and
gestures, and heard his tones. As he himself
said, w ith the childliko frankness and simplicity
so characteristic of him, when ho was congratu
lated upon tho tare inspiration of his speech,
" Yes it was nno of those things for which one
cannot himself account, it conies, you know not
w hence." You w ill see the report but will not
know how mud: his voice and manner added to
it, tho rrporti of speeches are never wholly
just. The last ono made in the evening Was
equal in some pnrts to the morning one, but all
things considered, that stands alone.
Last Sunday evening I spent ot Theodoro
Parker's, so had on opportunity of seeing the
great man at home and if in the pulpit,
lie bangs and bcthwacks them, their backs ho
With the whnlo tree of knowledge plucked up
by the roots,
At home, he plants it again, and sits most
quietly and easily in its shade, tulking all sorts
of great talk in tho simplest quietest manner
possible. I could not help remarking the sin
gular healthiness of mind and body which dis
tinguiscd him from nearly all students. But I
am getting this entirely too long.

Mn. Editor; Your Cincinnati correspondent
in his U tter of May 17th, takes occasion to say,
" Your correspondent who givca an account of
tho Anti-Slavery Convention, docs injustico it
seems to me, to those Frco Soilcrs who did not
attend, or did not take any active part in tho
meeting. It is true, thcro was soino show of
man s Uighis,nnn-voting convention,
may have been tho intention nf thoso w ho call
ed it, as to its being a Union Convention, it w as
to all practical purposes a meeting of that class
of abolitionists." I know not w ho tho corres
pondent alluded to is, nor what ho has said,
which is supposed to bo unjust, but I wish to
glance a littlo at the stato of facts disclosed by
this letter. Tho w riter declares, " it was to all
practical purposes a meeting of thut class of
abolitionists," and then very candidly goes on
to show how it came to bo such. Certain pro
minent frco soilers, whim he names, men whose
talents and anti-slavery professions, give great
weight of influence to tho direction in which
they move, "very likely," "may have thought
it their duty to stay aw ay. Had they taken an
active part, or countenanced it in nny way, they
would have been Identified, whether justly or
not, it matters little, with views and mcaiurcs
they do not approve." That tells tho wholo
story. If these persons had attended and par
ticipated, and had given this direction to their
influence w ith others, who docs not see that it
would have changed the wholo aspect of tho
Convention, and a real Union meeting havo
been the result ? And yet their apologist coolly
turns round and assumes thut, whut he has
shown to bo an clfcct of their own procuring,
shtjll bo considered a justification of their lion
attendance! llut let us try these professed
Anti-Slavery men, who are too puro to mix in
efforts for the slave, w ith " Uurrisonian, Wo
man's llights, Non-Voting," men and "with"
"women," by their own rule. Do tho persons
named, and docs tho class in community they
represent, refuse all ecclesiastical connection
with individuals, tho w hole of whoso opinions
nnd actions they cannot endorse? Do they
stund w holly aloof from tho churches of the
land, becauso if they tako an active part, or
eountcnnueo them in any way, they will become
identified, whether justly or not, with views
and uicusurca in respect to slavery, which they
bo not approver is tho poli'ic-ul party, or arc
tho parties with which these gentlemen arc un
derstood to co-operate, perfectly immaculate,
without spot, or blemish, in word or deed ! I
trow not. It is from tho cause of tho slave
alone, when the work ol his redemption is at
tempted, by thoso against w hom they feel tho
bitterness of sectarian or political prejudice, from
contact w ith whom they anticipate a soil to their
reputation that they stand uloof. No more
pregnant delineation do they need, than this
their apologist has pluccd upon record. Let
them answer so far us they can to their own
consciences. Wo will admit, for their works
prove that they havo a degree of sympathy for
tho suffering bondman ; but if they accept this
explanation of tho occasion, for their ubsenco
from the Convention, which has been volunteer
ed, they must ucknowlodgo it has been shown
thcif sympathy is entirely subserviont to their
own self love, manifested in a superior regard
for reputation, or sccturian, or party association.
Let justice bo done though tlio heaven's fall, is
no motto of theirs. Eut lot justico be done,
provided w o can secure the emancipation of tho
slavo without co-labor, ncrformed with wo
men, Garrisonians, and Woman's llights men."
The picturo is drawn by themselves.
I believe it to be a lumcntablo fact, that in
Southern Ohio, tho cuuso of Anti-Slavery 1ms
retrograded, rather than advanced, during tho
past six years. Tho causo for this, I bclievo
may bo legitimately traced to the action of lead
ing men, a part of whom wcro named in the
letter of your correspondent, and originating in
tho motives, in great measure, w hich ho has de
scribed as holding them aloof from the lato
convention. The moral question has not been
kept before tho people. Tho senso of tho ex
ceeding sinfulness of slavery, and of the respon
sibility for its existenco under which every
American citizon is involved, has rather faded,
than deepened in tho minds of the people. The
tricks and stratagems of parties, tho subterfu
ges of political uctiun, w ith calculations of tho
chances of political success, in great degree,
throughout this wholo region havo taken tlio
placo of thoso appeals to reason and to con
science, w hich once gave vitality to Anti-Slavery
feeling. Loving their sects und parties, and
personal und politicul reputation, more than they

they suppose to be tho errors of " Uarrisonism,
Woman's llights, and non-yoting," mora than
they hate slavery. Tho individuals in question j
solemnly believe, aro chargeable before tho
world, and will bo held rosponsiblo by God,
ilti arresting in Southern Ohio the progress of
Anti-Sluvery sentiment, und thereby w ith per- I
portionubly returding the era of Emancipation.
rejoice thnt the remarks of your correspondent
afford mo tho occasion to express my convic
