I reiterate my assertion, thut " love never jet denounced any mini," though it must always, denounce his crimes. Abolitionists may havo denounced the acta of slaveholders in love, and as a uinller of fact, they hnvo often done so, with breaking hearts, but they hnvo never denounced the slaveholders themselves, in love. Ivo never denounces iiiuii, but for thnt very reason, it must do nounce their sins, because these sins are against the men, and love yearns to save men from tite r.

JOSEPH TREAT. Domestic Slave Trade--Fugitive Law. Leonard llacon, I). I)., is writing a series of lo'tors lo Ucrard Ilnllo.k, lq., in tlio i.iMii it nl. From one of thcuc letters w extract the following statistics In toward to tho domestic slave trade and its relation to tho fugitivo !uw. The Mlmlition of tho African slave-trade, then, has had the ell'ect of binding the slavu hnlding ntaten into one community, held to. gether not merely hy the fai-t that they nil have slaves, but much more by the mutual dependence of the slave-hovers and the slave sellers. Instead of the. African slave-trade thern has grown up nit American slavo-ti adit, with horrors of its own. The statistics of Ibis "dreadful tiadu" nro lint easily got at. You remember Iho alarm ol'souiliern sena tors, when, in Iho plan for taking the census of IrCs"), there Ind liecu inadvertently inserted a ipicstinu or two by which furl were to bo iincuilained concerning tho migration from thn old states to the new; nml how peremp torily they iiisi.-ted on suppressing nil in piiry ivltich was likely lo levual what they thought had I Titer be kept secret. Yet now and llien some startling liid, primly suOieieut, looms up li'o u I thai Valley of Iho shadow of ili alii. 'nr example, its long nro ns IS'M, Professor William H. Dew, of William nml Mary College, in mi niL'iiiiieut against lliu abolition of slavery which had be en pro Mised in Virginia, proclaimed the fact lliat tliu liigh-miinled "old ilomiiiioii" wan at that lime exporting her own tialito population us merchandise, nt the rate of (i 0(10 souls every ) ear, and was receiving m return fur them the gross nnoiinl miioiint ol .l.''(M),00O. 1 hu census loo, from one decennial period to an other, notwithstanding Iho vigilancu wild winch impertinent 1 unkee ipieslionn nic ex cluded, reveals, lo Ihoso who " culciihite," some astounding facts. In IsyO, for example, tho slme nmiuhition of Virginia was. (in rniiud nundiers) J'J."i,(iOO. iXine can iiniiiil Unit Iho slave poiulation ol that state, in respect lo climate, looil,. treat ment, iijid nil plijsienl ndvantages, is ns favorublv siliintcii liir mnliiiiK ini' itself ns tho slave population of perhaps liny other stale m lim t ttiiiu rrrtaliilv moro lavoralilv situ ated than the aggregate, slave population of inu l moil as n wlinle. r-uiro Ic il) llin slave popiihition of the I'liion has increased from LKW.OdO lo :i,!iH.()(;0. Had the slavo iioiiii- laltoii of Virginia iucrensed nt llin samn rato, Iho census of IrCO would have reiiorled from ntali! Hrtl.COO slaves; whereiiH the number nclually reluriied hy the census is only W., leaving 411. 17'Jiinacco'inled liir. 'I'ho uianmiiissiiiiis iu Viruiuia, during those thir ty years, cannot have, been in u much greater ralio to tho number of slaves, than the niaiiil missioiiH iu the I'nion at large, for it must ho remembered that, within Iho period iu on ca tion, the abolition of slavery has been roil siimmated iu New York and New Jersey. Nor w ill the escape of fugitives account liir miy portion of the difference between what the slave population of Virginia is iu the census of lfC0, ami what the general rato of increase requires it to he ; for there in no rea son to suppose that Virgiuin (not being n bor der slate) loses more slaves by flight llian Iho averngn of the slavo states generally. Make the largest reasonable allowance for the few slaves who, in company with their hereditary masters, I nun mieraled, unsold, mid in un broken tiimilies, from old Virgiuin to new plantations in tho Houth-west; mid thorn- miiuiiler will show you tho operation ol tho Virginia elave-truilo for Ihcse thirty yenrs. Hut the slave-trade in not carried on from Virgiuin atone. In thn slato of Maryland, the slave population, thirty yenrs ngo, was 107,000. 1 lie manumissions mid escapes are much mni'u nunicroiia in Maryland than iu Virgiuiu more numerous probably than lliu averago for the whole I'nion. On thn other hmiil, the numbe r ol hereditary musters emi grating from Maryland lo iho Sonlli-wcht with their own " people ' is probably less, in proportion, than llie number thus emigrating Iruin Virginia. With the inmost iillowuuco I'oi diminution from llicse various causes, the natural increase of the slaves in Maryland, since It'.'O, must have been not far from 10U per rent., Iho increase! liir thn w hole I'nion having Ix'cii I OH per rent. At that rate, the census for lH.'O would havo reported from Maryland, 211.(100 slaves, instead ol which it reports only IIU,:ltirl. .More than tho whole, natural increase, liir these thirty years, has been swalled up hy the slave-trade. This American slave-trade, I said, linn horrors of its own. Who tire the victims of il? Not savage Africans, only n lew degrees above Iho level of the brutes human only in their capabilities ; but lialivo Americans. They have been horn in n temperate climate ; limy have been ucruslnmeil to labors com paratively light ; they have lived under bond age indeed, but where there is some chance of their becoming free, or nt leant some hope of freedom liir their posterity. They hnvo some degree of civilization nnd of knowl edge. Many of them, members of churches, preachers perhaps of lliu Gospel to those of their own class, have the sensibilities nnd aspirations that nro developed by Christian cultivation. Many of Ilium nre of u Anglo Hiixou" lineage; uot a few of them with the proudest nnd holiest blood of the cavaliers coursing in their veins. Theso people lire torn from nil the associations of homo mid native anil, from nil domnslii! ties, however sacred, from all objects of natural nlleetion and natural duty, from all human hope thin side of death. Manacle. I and fettered Ihr salb keeping, driven in weary collies along iho inland routes, or carried coastwise, iu the floating hell of the slave-ship, they are swept lo a bondage on which no hope of freedom gleams; mid henceforth, with such masters as tho chances oflrall'iu may give thom.they nre lo luhor till death under iho fiercer sun that ripens the cotton, or umid the miii.Mini of tho rice ground and the cuun-field. And who are tho agents of this traffic? Men who, as -all southern gentlemen assure us, are simply infamous tho very worm and most detested cluss thut sluvory uud tho slave- tradn engenders in society men whoso con tact is shunned ns if il were infection. Hitch In the Amfrirnn Inve-trndn; and such are its statistics, as nearly ns the census will give them. And yet intelligent men iu our Northern cities, men of Immune mid Christian sympathies, bill misled hy commer cial intnies's, directly or indirectly, or by the iiilhl 'iircs of political t r ecclesiilVticnl parti sanship, will tell us with such statistics as these within their reach that the represen tation of slavery triven in Mr. Slowe's ex quisite story of " Undo Tom's Cabin," is un just. Yen, men and women loo of high culture nnd refined sensibility while iho census informs us, nnd informs the world, thai this slave-trade with its unutterable crimes nnd miseries, minting everything that in holy and tearing every heart-string, niiui beta at the lowest estimate fiiim twenty to forty thousand victims every year can make up their faces to tell un that " I'ncln Tom's Cabin" is a mischievous honk. "Loan I WHAT IS MAM THAT THOU AHT MISKFUL OK IIIMf" Perhaps you nro wondering what all this has to do with a discussion of the lugitive slave law. You shall see, if yon will be i;i lienl. Let mo ask. Why did Congress pro hibit thn African slave liiide ? Why follow up that prohibition w ith one act lifter another increasing in stringency till the impoitntioii of n slave from Africa was mailt) piracy? Was it the inmiilest duly of Congress to en net those laws? Would it he nu outrage on the moral sense of Iho nation nnd of thn world to repeal them ? Then why has not Congress provided a parallel ntrien id laws against this infamous American slave-trade? Why is it that the laws ngniust Iho African slave-trade, have been permitted to become ill effect a scries of measures for tho prolec tectiou of lliu American slave-breeder against foreign competition? 1.4 there any good reason for such discrimination ? Arc such men an llin slnvo-'nuling firm of Itruiii & Hill any heller, or any less worthy of the gallows, than a man w ho buys slaves on the coast of All ien, except as the law which con demns iho otic protects the other? There ore two plain reasons, nnd no third, why the American slave-trade, from one slato to another, is not prohibited hy art of Congress. Tin: first is that if a hill lor such an net were introduced, tho L'uion would be Immediately " ill danger," hy the " agitation," nnd the hill rnnscfpieiitly could nut puss. Tho second is, that if such u law woro en acted, it could not, in present statu of public opinion nt the South, lin carried into execu tion. J hern would be so mnnV way oH. evading it, and indeed it would he so gener ally regarded as an invasion of the saeied right ol propei tv, that it would presently he come n dead letter on tho statute hook. Now I beg leave to say, that these two ren sons aio cipiallv valid ngniust Iho fugitive slave law of l.'iO. Tho enactment of urA rt law on that subject, mid the nttemiil to carry il into execution hnvo produced mid every renewed attempt to execute it will infallibly produce "agitation," the agitation of tliu whole question of slavery iu till its relations ami limitation, you know, makes it necc sury for commercial men, mid patriotic, men, mid eloquent men, nnd good men, to do ninny (lungs Unit would otherw ise bo very disagree able for tho snko of saving the Union. And then lliu execution of such n law, violating an it noes, every sentiment of jitstico and ol sympathy with those who Miller, and hruak ing down lliu bulwarks erected hy our an cestors for tho delt'tiso of personal freedom, in sure to lie resisted iu every method ol legal or peaceful opposition; nnd a tier n few moru mlcmpts, stirring the public mniil with deep. er disgust mid indignation, it will npjicar thut llin law iu litllu more than n dead letter. Such a law ought not to havu been rum f'd by a government too impotent or loo cow ardly to lake any measure against lliu stu pendous atrocily of the iiiterual klavu-traile, And till Congress shall begin to exert Us constitutional power ngniust thai trade at least till it shall adopt some other policy than thatol protecting tho domestic producer of slaves against all loreigu competition, hy the most eflectual discriminating duly that can he conceived any extra cniistituliunr.l zeal iu the way of giving positive aid lo the re capture of fugitives, may very decently bo dispensed with. The Constitution, as you will remember, contemplates only tho rime of a fugitive from "Hurvice or labor,'1 mid provides only that ho shall hu delivered up to the necessity of per forming the service or labor liom which he has fled, ltut the fact is, tliu legislation of Congress under lliu Constitution has been so conducted that now tho fugitive dons not lly from the mere obligation lo service or labor imposed hy the laws of llie state which en slaves him, but rather from another evil in comparison with which the obligation In life-long luhor, unrequited, on his master's acres, is only n triflu. flu does not escape from labor or service merely, hill from lliu dreadful chance of falling into the hands of the sluve-lrndurs. And when he is caught by some huso device of a venul police, nnd rily "delivered up" hy the sentence of a petty officer fit for a business so degra ding, he is never carried hack to his former pluee, there to perform tliu service or labor lo which he wan held under tliu lawn of that stale, (which in what the Constitution con templates and provides for; ) but hu is cur ried lo tho sliivn-mniket, to n doom which thousands would pronounce more terrible than death. Butler mo to say that the Irn mers of iho Constitution never intended to make such a compact as .this. Our liilhers verily thought that the Constitution gure nil necessary security lor thn complete tupprts lion of the slave-trade; but behold in Iho grand new compromise of 18.10, thin fugitive slave law is introduced, for the purpose of making tho power of iho L'uion auxiliary lo the conservation not of slavery only, hut of that trafiio in slaves w hich, in the words once used by Jefferson, is a continued "civil-war against human nature itself." How much occasion, think you, would there bo for Iho recapture of fugitives, fioiu slavery, if there were no slave-trade between one slate and another? Thnt sl.ive-lrado is w ithin the jurisdiction of Iho federal govern ment; more c ideally go than thin business of recnptuiing sluves; nnd I beg you, and Ihoso who net with yon, to rememhei that your constant agitation in behalf of this fugitive-slnva Inw cannot hut hasten tho limn when the peopln of the Union will demand, ami will have, the suiinrcssion of Iho slave- trade as tho legilimato and only method of putting mi end to Ibis wearisome mid irritn ling agitation for Iho recapture of the wretch es who attempt lo escape from its vortex.

In a recent nmiihcr of Frederick PongbirV Paper we find n hitler liniii A. K.

They thought, if to bo true abolitionists, it was necessary to repudiate the llihlc, government, nnd all church orgnnizn tinns ; tho mieritlre was too great, and coiuo- ! qucntly abandoned tho cause." Now we know something about the his tory of miti shivcry iu Iesvillc, and we af firm that tho above language is in the highest degree slanderous. The 'Ijarrisoiiians' who have visited Leesvillu as lecturers, never said or intimated that, "to he into abolition ists' it wns necessary lo repudiate tho liible, government mid all chnreli organizations." They made no such foolish issue, nor nuy other in tho least degree like il. They did, however, present their views of Iho U. S. Constitution and of the moral obligations growing out of the compromises it makes w ith slavery. They also dealt faithfully with lliu Weslcyan Church, nnd showed bow it was involved iu tho support of slavery by tolerating its members in voting for sluvo- liol lers, giving tliu liaml ol lellowship to monsters of the Old Church, fee. , mid Ibis was precisely what Mr. Demster mid his friends could not hear.

After till thin Mr. Demster comes to Mr. Douglass with loud professions of lovo to the slave, and asks him lo go to Ohio and root out Iho ' Cariso liian' tares!

Once Mr Doug lass would not hnvo received in silence a compliment lo himself ns n Christian, cou pled w ith this stale slander upon the '(iiirri Koninns.' Mr. Douglass' paper goes lo Crent Ibitain, w here this letter of Mr. Dem ster will no doubt ho used by John Hcohlo nnd other enemies of tho Americnii Anti Slavery Society, to bolster up their disuse, mid whero tho silence -of Mr. Douglass in relation lo its principle allegations will ho regarded, probably, as a virtual endorsement of ihrin. As a professed friend of the American Society, Mr. I), owed it lo himself, iu publishing Mr. Demster'n slanders, to meet Iheui w ith n prompt rebuke. Methodist Episcopal Church in Painesville.

Alterwards tho prisoner, being ill, sent for a doctor, and ac lually asked the doctor if hu was an Alioli lionist; and when iho latter answcreil iu the nrgative, tho prisoner then inquired how lie liked the Abolitionists!
