A Fugitive Slave Case. ST. CATHARINES, Tuesday, July 6, 1852. Da srk , I take the liberty to address to you a few line respecting a very Interesting of escape from the great Southern Sodom (New Orleans). On Friday morning last, a fine appearing colored girl, atmost white, waa broughtlo my house by two colored men from Chippewa. She la only In the 14th year of her age, but had been aold four times. From what I ean gather from her, her mother is a lars In New Orleans, having two sons and two daughters, besides this girl, all the children of wealthy banker In the slave-breeding State of Virginia. Her father had occasionally aent money to her mother at New Orleans. $50 at a time. It was the lot or the girl (Mary Elis i beth), to be aold some years ainoe to a slave holder, by name of C , who died at New Orleans about two years sgo, and made provi alon by will for the freedom of his slaves, fifty In number, on condition that they should be carried Into Free State. They were kept In bondage in spite of the will. I think tinder the pretext that there was no mesns of paying for their transportation. Mary's mother was enabled to keop the child with her, by paying $0 per month for that privilege. A Southctn, by name of C , was eoming to the North, and took the girl in charge, Iq the ebtenso of her mother, little more than two weeks sgo, and brought her on to wait on his daughter. On their way from Cleveland to Buffalo, by atcanier, her condition waa ascertained, I think, by the chambermaid, who with othcrt.contrivcd to transfer the child to the British steamer Em erald, in Buffalo harbour. She came concealed to Chippewa. The maator was immediately thore after her, and a lawyer with him from Buffalo. He tried to claim her on tho ground that she was free girl, and that ho was pledg ed to deliver her in New York, where sho wss soon to join tho other emancipated slarcs from New Orleans, who wero be to shipped around. This kind of reasoning would not take ; there waa great excitement about the case in Chippe wa. The eolouicd people took her in charge, determined that aha should havo freedom in Canada, without going to New York for it ; so the claimant and his lawyer had to go back empty. The claimant then began to ofler money for the delivery of tho girl on the New York sido of the river $600 $1,000, fcc. Thus for he has failed. The girl is hero In my family, cheerful and contented but her escape has caused very great excitement. Y'csterdsy morning I received message by telegraph from Chippewa, warning us against the trap of the alavs-huntor, who, It is feared, has one or more ooloured persons bribed ovor In his favour. Laat evening a coloured woman from Chippe wa called to see Mary. She was very full of good will, and had to report that tho girl's clothes hsd boen sent on nr her, but that it was necessary for ler to go to Chippowa to get them. I asked her why she did not bring the clothes with her questioned her and cross ques tioned her, and made her contradict herself in several particulars. I wua satisfied that she was here for for no good. Others aro doubtless lurking about under the influonce of bribery. The poor girl shall be protected and educated in a free country, and not be subject to specu lation and prostitution by white-skinned, but black-hearted knaves and villians from the South. Faithfully and truly yours. HIRAM WILSON. P. 8. While writing the above letter, the coloured woman from Chippewa called again, and in vain asked to ace tho girl, begging my wifo to let her take a walk with her this even inc. Clod forbid 1 She shall bo in no such company. I should have said that tho South erner waa heard to ssy ho hsd paid $500 for her, and that she would be worth a $1,000 to him, on getting back to New Orleans, u. w. Change of Position.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE meets August 1st. Colonization in New Brighton. A challenge from colonizetiontsts for the dis cussion of their principles, Is something that has been unheard of In thoao latter days. But such a thing ha votitably hsppenod. How, sud with whst result, we will proceed to relate Tho Rev. It R, Qurlcy, and the Rsv. Mr. Quadc, agent of the Pa. colonization society, were in New Brighton, on Monday evening of last week, in furtherance of the colonization scheme. After a lecture by Mr. Ourley, who is tho older, and wo suppose the better soldier in the csuae, three resolutions were presented for adoption by the audience. One affirming the " comprehensive benevolence of tha coloni zation scheme ;" another declaring it worthy of support for the benefits it confcrs.on the inhab itants of America and Africa, both white and black j and the third, warmly approving of Mr. Stanley's plan, now before Congress, compelling tho states to appropriate the unpaid Inatallinont of tho aurplus revonue, when it shall be re ceived, to the traniportation of the blacks, or to forfeit the same. To these resolutions some of tho citizens, urged objections. Their coloniza tion neighbors, strong in the conviction that their champion, renowned in both hemispheres for his colonization triumphs, could very easily and successfully dispose of sll opposition, chal lenged a discussion of the resolutions. It wss accepted, and Wednesday evening appointed for tho meeting. At the request of soversl friends in New Brighton, we attended. A quick and pleasant trip we had to this beau tiful and quiet village. How much the pleasure of the ride was marred by trepidation at the thought of meeting two reverend champions, one tho Goliah ol colonization, shall remain un told. It is enough for our roadcrs to know that we survived our apprehensions, and also tho first speech of Mr. Qurlcy, which so fur restored our equinimity, as to enable us to occupy our si lotted half hour. Mr. Qurlcy's speech was dovotod mainly to an argument, to prove colonisation the true remedy for slavery, interspersed with such beautiful eulogies of tho scheme, ss the savior of Africa, as he only knows how to make. In reply, we endeavored to show, that so far from being a scheme of u comprehensive benev olence," it wss one of selfishness. A conspiracy against the defenceless, conooirod and cxecu'.ed by tho conjunction of slavory, prejudice and hatred. That granting all it claimed for itself in behalf of tho emigrants and of Africa, still it was only worthy of our condemnation. For if it had chistiariacd and civilised a portion of Africa, it had done it by preaching Anti-christ and establishing barbarism in America. If it had stopped the slave trade in Africa, it had done it by becoming tho partner of slavo trading and by aiding in extending the traffic in Amer ica. If it had improved the condition of tho less than soven thousand it had transported in 35 years, it hsd dono it by sinking in more hope leu desolation, the three million of slaves at home; and by slandering and degrading the thousands of frco colored peoplo in tho laud. Mr. Curlcy replied to the charge that coloni sation originated with slave holders, by the da duration that it owed its existence to Granvillo Sharp and other distinguished Abolitionists in Great Britain and America ; and then re-pro sentcd his beautiful vision of Africa cvcngcl ized. Mr. Geo. McElhenny, ascnsiblo, true hearted Pennsylvania farmer, very clearly exposed tho relation of the colonization schema with tho prrjudieo of the frco states, and its anti-chris tiunity and wickedness. Mr. Qurlcy in his reply, not occupying his at totted time, Dr. Clark of New Brighton finished out, with a eulogy of Henry Clay, proving we presume to the satisfaction of all the whigs.that through his whole life, ho had been the friend Of gradual emancipation. Appended to this eulogy was something quite the opposite, applied to us, for not having treated tho great colonizs tionist and com promisor with due respect. In substantiating the charges previously msdc, we read from the last annual report of the Col onization Society, extracts of speeches by Hon Mr. Stanton of Tenn., and Rov. Mr. Slaughter of Vs. The atrocity of tho sentiments avowed by theso distinguished colonizatlonista, evidently wss thought not to bo the thing for a New Brighton audionco, however well adapted to one at Washington. And tho chairman of the meeting, B. R. Bradford, Eq., very gently hinted that our roading might not bo in ordor but finally permitted it to proceed. Presently, the Rev. Qusdo came to tho rescue, with sn ap peal to the chair to stop the reading as out of order. Tho chair very promptly responded with the decision, that as the affirmative had present cd no documentary proof of tho correctness of their petitions, it was not In order for the negs tivo to present sny, and the reading must cease. We submitted with most exemplary meekness, knowing that tho necessity for this gag would bo well understood by tho audience. To this succeeded for a few minutes, a specl men of free meeting. The friends present from both sides, uttering what they deemed appro. priate. And tha one not exactly waiting for tho other, in all cases. The chairman, on the suggestion of one of the colonizatlonista finally changed the record, by assigning aa tha reason for his decision, tho irrelovancy of tha quota tions; and finally, without any repudiation of his decision, inrited us to proceed which we MI.I tl.niiti nnfr m-ltls... .Am. r.,rlliAV tnnMtl. ncnt interruption from priest Quads. Mr. Qurley followed, and closed by recount ing his successful encounters with Mr. Blanch ard at Cincinnati, and 8. J. May and George Thompson in Boston. But the crowning glory of his ehsmpionship, seemed to be a contest with Rev, John Scoble, of London, In which,' after vanquishing and causing the flight of that wor thy, he night after night, triumphantly vindica ted tha colonization scheme, as wss overwhelm ingly manifest, by the unanimous vote of the large and Intelligent audience at hia olose. All of which seemed very clearly to ssy I Now you, the good people of Now Brighton, will not sure ly refuse to pass those resolutions, aftor I have advocated them. I, the Rov. Ralph Randolph Gurley J who by my eloquence and my logic, brought the intelligent philanthropy of a Lon don audience, to recognize tha bencvohnce of colonization. Tho resolutions were then put, and notwith standing this vory touching appeal, on the di vision on the first resolution, only fourteen, all told, were found to be in its favor; the remain ing part of the audience rising very promptly In opposition. The Colonizatlonista consoled themselves, howevor, with tho reflection, that their friends had left the audience before tho voto was taken, and by assuring us that they intended to form a colonization sooiety and thon they could pass the resolutions themselves. Tho Rev. Mr. Quade also proposed an attempt to raise funds for the society, and this was also assigned to the colonization society that it to be. Contribu tion! of material aid, we venture to ssy, will he quite limited at Now Brighton, even when their colonization society shall get fully under way. An ovent yet considerably in the future we opine. Since writing the above wo havo seen an ac count of tho meeting in tho Pittsburgh Gazette, in which it is stated that tho challenge camo from tho abolitionists. Wo can only ssy thst wo wero informed otherwise As this writers object is to glorify Mr.Gurlcy, and make the best of the matter, ho very appro priately omits all reference to tho troublesome documonts, and the action connected therewith. For the benefit of tho New Brighton coloniza tionists we Insert his two closing paragraphs. Hero they are " The vote wos then taken upon the reso lutions, which were rejected by n arnall mniori- ty. In justice to the citizens of New Bi'ljrii ton, it should be stilted that, though the dis cussion began and wua carried on for some hours before a crowded audience, in conse quence of the Idleness of the hour to which it was protruded, there were about a score of persons present at the pulling of the ques tion to the meeting, and thnt the moiety of these were 'Spiritual Rupiiers,' 'Wotnun's Kighta Men, ami disciples ol the other stan dard humbugs of the age. It was a source ot gratitirution, also, thai alter adjournment, aeverul persona who up to that time had been cuusisleut members ot the Abolition Tarty, came lorwunl nud prolessed themselves per fectly convinced ot the superior policy and philanthropy ot Colonization. " Mr.Gurloy leuves soon for the Eust, hav ing earned the respect of ull who have heard his addresses, nud the congratulations and kind wishes of every friend of African Colo nization." We will jutt add that tho audience was neither as crowded during tho discussion, nor as much diminished at ita close as this writer represents, and that the majority, by which the resolutions were rejected wss such, that tho chairman did not think proper to announce tho number, though he had announced the fourteen in their favor. II it mitigates at all the mortification of this writer at tho result of the meeting, to think thst it was brought about by a handful of spirit rappers and other victims of "standard hum bugr," we would by no means spoil his conso lation. But we are anxious to know, whethor tho new converts mentioned, were counted with tho 14 ; whether their conversion occurred after the vote, or whether they aro of that number who ran away without voting. We would also suggest the propriety of publishing their names, that the colonization society may hare tha full weight of their Influence. Fare Reduced. Attendants upon tho Anniversary, who travel by the Pennsylvania and Ohio or the Clovcland and Pittsburgh Rail Road will be carried for one half the ordinary faro. That is, they will psy full price going end be returned free. On purchasing their tickets they should montion the fact that they aro going to the Convention. Anniversary.

Naw Railroad. As one of tha stockhold ers in the Under Ground Railrosd Company, we proposed to Rev. R. R. Gurley, at New Brighton the other day, a connection of our line with the Libeiia Packets, for the benefit of those who chose to emigrate to Africa. Ws are not ablo to ropurt a favorable answer from thia distinguished agent of emigration, but as he msdu no reply, we presume he has it under eoiuideraiio. Fx SB Soil Corvbxtiom.

How magnani mous Its people, How free its institutions. Trslned as we are to the love of liberty our sym pathies are ever gushing towards the king ridden end priest ridden masses of less favored lands. Neither do we hide our light under a bushel, but set it on a candlestick that the benightened may see it and be blessed. Especially do we trim our lamp or snuffour candle on the glorma fourth, the day on which the despot's candle went out, and freedoms lamp wss lit. One of two things seems certain, either the people have a very large measure of freedom or they make much, very much of what they have got, bo it ever so little. Some people hsve tho fuculty of doing quito a largo business on very small capi tal, while some make quito a stir and show with fictitious capital alone. The latter 1 am inclined to think ia the condition of this country. From the number of persons employed on tho fourth' to set forth the articlo of liberty as possessed by us ss a peoplo, ono would think the quantity to be very great and the quality to bo remarkably good. In fact, if all that was said on that mem orable day waa written in a book the world would scarcely contain it; and yet amid the whole, millions of bondmen toil in hopeless sgony. Slavo mothes shriek in painful dismay, while the great political parlies sgrce to smother their voices and drown their agonies in their maddened shouts for Liberty end Union. Father forgive snd save them. An incident occurred on the evening preceding tho day on which the nation celebrates its birth, which shows what a mockery, to some, such a celebration must be. I had some timo before engagod to speak on tho third and fourth in Pcnn. and aa myself and wifo were on our road there wo staid all night at tho houso of a friend. About dark an anti-sluvcry brother came in to get a team to take a man and his wife to Jeffer son. Wo soon found that they wero Virginians of sable complexion who wero straining evciy nerve to cscapo from this land of liberty, to one of monarchial rule, where they might rest from their fears, being safe. Of course a team was soon provided, all hands readily aiding the glorious work. AU socmcd to bar o " conquered their prejudices" and went to work with " alac rity." Ono who himself had long felt the gall ing yoke went to tho Hold for tho horses, others fixed the box on tho wagon while the women in the houso took up a collection for tho fugitivca, who were again apecdily under good headway. I accompanied tho friend abovo mentioned in his midnight journey, and a sad yet happy timo wo had, aad to think that at that very time in Jef ferson and hundreds of other places balls were being held in commemoration of freedom, and within sound of the music and under cover of the night in old Ashtabula, American mon and women were trembling Test the bloodhounds of slavery should, from within sight of Canada, drag them back to the hell from whenco they had escaped happy, becauso thero was a pros pect that two of God's children and our follows wero soon to bo frco from thoir master. This poor old couple had served their wholo lives under tho galling lash. For three score years they had endured sll the incidents of chat tlciam. But they could enduro no moro. Qod had blessed them in his love with seven children fond and dear. Ono by one the relentless grasp of slavery tore them away until not ono was left. " Gono, gone, sold snd gone To tho rice swamp dank and lone." AU this continued series of sggressions upon the patornal foclings, they had borne. At laat the mother and wife in hor old ago is to be sold to satisfy the monsters demand. This was too much. They fled to the swamps and woods, and finally after toils and dangers untold they had reach od the border county. Crippled and aged they ardently desired to reach a land where they could die free. I will mention that tho friend who took them on their journey is a Jus tice of the Poace as also a mombor of the Freo Will Baptist Church. We took them to tho house of a government officer to whoso hoapi. tality they wero heartily welcome, could they have been Induced to atay. I told my friend that I waa glad to see office holdcis setting at nought their political obligations, trampling con stitutions and laws benoath their feet at tho de mand of humanity. " Man is more than constitutions, better rot bo- neath the aod, Than be truo to Church and State, and doubly false to God." Tho young mon at the ball contributed some thrco dollars for their aid, and they went on their way rejoicing; what a commentary on tho next days proceedings. I held two good meet ings in Penn. in the neighborhood of Lincsvillo. Where I found Mr. Sclby had been tho week before doing good service On the following Tuesday I started for Modina county, to keep somo engagements alluded to in a former articlo. On Sunday tho 1 1th spoke in Hinkloy twice, to the lsrgcst congregations I ever ssw there, ex cept the grove convention two years sgo. A large barn was fitted up as a sanotuary and thore amid tho smiles of heaven we plead tho cause of our enslaved country men. I trust many hearts were quickened, On Tuesday we hsd ono of tha heaviest rain storms I ever ssw, this prevented our meeting that evening. On Thursday evpnlng I spoke at a place callod Sodom, to a deeply attentivo congregation. A fow Domocrat who believe in equality, and at the same time believe as strongly that slavery will be perpetual were rather excite! at what was ssid about the gov ernment, but although It was the first lecture of the kind in the plsce the seed sown was not in vain. Yesterday (Sunday) I bad two meotir.gs ap pointed at Bonnett's oorners, so had tho Univer salists. But the minister, Mr. Binns, cheerfully shortened bis morning service and gave up his afternoon one so that I might have time to ad dress (he people. There was a largo attendance, and a blessed time we had. . Would that all ministers thus acted. Thon would our opposition to that class necessarily cease, the religion of Jesus be saved from oppro- J brlum, and the slave have hopo in his redemp tion. Yours, . W. Rumors of War. Some of the newspapers aro talking valiantly about going to war with Great Britain for tho aake of catching cod fish within the Bay of Fundy and certain other waters from which j Greet Britain claims the right to exclude our fishermen. From what we can learn of the case, the British Govcnrnmcnt would seem to be unjustiflablo In her course. But we are per fectly suro it will bo adjusted, if adjusted at all, without artillery or bayonets. Northern fishing, in this country, is altogether of secon dary Importance to southern man hunting. This latter sport is nf too dclicste a nature to risk the results of a fight with Great Britain. So that the north may as well make up her mind to do without codfish, or buy them of the isrttisn.unicss sno can amicably settle this little quarrel. The south will be quito as ready to regulato the diet of her northern, as her south ern slaves. And now thst tho former hsve proved themselves such admirablo gudgeons aa to awallow the nlatfnrma. It tnnv Ka thnmrht a good timo if necessity requires, to cut off tho supply of codfish. At all ovents, there is perfect safety in any amount of bluster in which the patriots may choose to indulge. They will not bo called up on to prove thoir courage, by performing their threats. Ridiculous and Wicked. The True Wesleyan recently stated thnt some of tho ministers of llio Methodist Epis copul Church in California, were slave hold ers. Tho InHt No. reports of these ministers, 1 1 in t they have informed the world through the California Advocate that their wives brought them tlie slaves they own, but that arrangements are mndo to send them ull oft' to Liberia. How ridiculous and wicked such exhibitions of prejudice. With emigrants arriving from all quarters by the 10,000 per month, and room yet for millions, these pious souls must expel their fellow beings from their territory because of their complexion. And tliey will probably claim any amount of diMiitcrcstedneMi mid nuti slavery in the set. So blind is the Methodist church thnt it will grant their claim without thought of d.mnir. Change.

Wo have entered into this line of business from cer tain very imprcssiblo feelings, and those feelings aro strengthened by what I romembcr of hear ing my parents read in an old book more than 50 years ago, one of the sayings is as fresh in my mind as when I first heard it, and as prao tico makes perfect, it is more firmly believed in, viz; Whatsoever therefore, ye would thst others should do unto you do you even so unto them." We shall want a good lecturer in Michigan the coining wintor without any regard to the election of Oen.

Mr.THomsT Chuucu Painsvihb The resolutions of this church are of the right sort.

With this political aid, ami thia Inrge amount of money, they hope to do a sweeping busi ness in the expulsion of our colored citizen from their homes. When they shall have ouce secured this end, any amount of neces sary severity will ho introduced into tlie law to, secure the willingness, to remove, after the fashion of Maryland and Indiana.
