CINCINNATI, July 23. 1852. Curious Emancipation Case—Free Soil Meeting Curious Emancipation Case—Free Soil Meeting —New State Asylums for the Insane— Health of Cincinnati—Death of Dr. A. L. Health of Cincinnati—Death of Dr. A. L. Busknell. To the Editor of the Buglet A CAM Of emancipation ha Intuly coma to my know ledge which is worthy of publication. Tha particular have horn given me hy a legal friend, conversant with the facta. . About tlie year 1848, Col. Sumlerlin, re aiding near Meniphia, Tenn., died, leaving a large estate. It was anid by bis neighbors that he coutJ travel on horseback from Mem phis to Nashville and lodge on his own land every night. His will, drawn up a year or two before bis death and witnessed by a Judge of one the Cutiris, divided one half of his estate to his legitimate rhildren, and the other half to ten children Irarn to him by a mulatto alnve. Theso colored children had been brought, previous to the making of the will, to Cincinnati, ntul to I'.vomville, Iml., and emancipated. The probate of the will was at onco resisted by the white heirs mid appealed to the Cincinnati Court for trial. Every obstacle known to the taw has been thrown in the way to prevent the trial of the ra.te. Chancery wns resorted t for an in junction. Sometimes the subscribing wit nesses would be absent, then the Judge, who wuh a witness, declined to testify in a cam over which he was presiding. At tha lust May term of the court, however, the cause mine to a hearing and tlio will was fully rtistuiued and established. When the will wns first resisted, James Birney of Cincinnoti, nt tlio instance of the heir in Ohio, went to Memphis and was offered every facility by the Officers of the Court in examining papers, &e. Ha engag ed JndH B:iily, an eminent attorney of Memphis, to superintend the case, uml by bis attention it has Lci-n brought to so fnvora lilu a conch ision. There was one singular fact connected with the case. The mother who bore the illegitimate children was not emancipated nor remembered in the w ill, nud if wo are rightly informal, was subsequently sold by tlio Kxeculur as part of the estate. This case is only one among the many coutiuuully occurring, exhibiting the workings of thu slave iustiiuliou and kind of morula nud ens. torn insepurnLIu from it. A few evenings since, a large meeting of the Free Suilers was held in the Canal Mar ket space, and much enthusiasm exhibited. Humuel Lewis was the principal speaker, nud spoke with great power, force of illus tration and brilliancy. There are few speak ers who cuu equal him in uddressiug a pop ular assembly, lie deplored the necessity of a third party, nud repudiated the idea of a factious opposition or a sectional orgunin linn on the part of the Free Boilers. Claim ing tliut they form the truly Nationul party, .aid llint the other parlies, by taking the side ff Slavery, had made themselves sectional. The Baltimore platform were reviewed, and shown to Le iiiiuiifctakiibly on thu side of tha Compromise and Fugitive Slave Law, thus forcing the friends of Freedom to keep up a separate organization. The fact that John Van Uurcu and oilier, who acted with ia in the campaign of 1818, had gone buck to the Democratic party, he said Would only move those who were fuiihl'ul in the cause of Liberty to more determined efforts to cnll others to her standard and rescue the Government from the slave power which has so long virtually controlled il. Delegates have since been chooseu to the Convention nt Pittsburgh, and every disposition mani fested to stand up manfully for the same cherished principles we voted lor in 1648, without stopping to inquire how many votes we can get, or what will be the effect of our organization on the result of the Presidential campaign. Having satisfied our minds as to the path of duty, we determine to pursue it without calculating consequences. This is the only honest and manly course. It has been settled that we are to have two new Lunatic Asylums in the State, and the Commissioners have decided to locate one nt Cleveland, and the other at Dayton. It was the general wish that the latter should be located near this city, but the land was too costly, and there was none offered gratu itously to the State. The funds appropriated tire barely sufficient to erect suitable build ings, without paying for ground. These in stitutions are much needed, and the Com mittee having sent two of their number Cast to examine the best in the Union, they will doubtles embrace the latest improvements in construction, and bo eminently adapted for their intended purposes. Rumor have gone abroad respecting the prevalence of the Cholera hero, which are unfounded. It does not prevail as on epi demic nor is it at all likely that it will this year. There have been a lew cases brought from below, by the river, or resulting from carelessness in diet, &c, but the city ha not been mora healthy in any summer for the Just ten year. So say some twenty-five or more of our physicians in a card issued a few daya since. It waa prejiared in reply to inquiries by the Committee of the Ameri can Board of Mission, which body stands adjourned to meet here on the 7th Septem ber. The Committee bad heard exaggerated report of tha prevalence of Cholera, and thought of holding tha meeting in one of the Eastern dii this year, The friends of the 1 ! Hoard here protest against this, hut for other reason recommend the meeting to be held in this city one month Inter that is, some- time in October. A good suggestion, ns the hent and dust make a visit here unpleasant until the very last of September. Dr. A. L. Bushnelt, one of our best physi crans, highly esteemed and respected by nil who knew him. died vrsturdnv after an ill- ness of six week, with an organic disease of the stomach. He has been for some years an active member of the Board of Trustee of our Public Schools, Secretary and Aeent of the City Relief Union, an ardent supporter of the Temperance cause, Superintendent of vimv ui tfiigcei ciiiMiuiii kJ'-Mwvie, mm an if dcr 111 llie (New School) Preshytnrinn Church, He went to Washington hist May a. a dele - gate to the General Assembly, but contrary to bis hopes, the journey did not improve his health. He was a warm friend of the Ami- Slavery cause, voting with the old Liberty . c . 1 1 .. i .i r. a ! party first, and bitterly with the Free Boilers. His life has been one of practical benevo - loncc, such as is rarely ecn, and being of a very even and omiuhlu temper, I presume he had no enemy. All lament tho departure from us of one a well deserving the title of the n.oMTEOi-s max, and especially those of us who have lost in him a good physician and a personal friend whose kindness to us can never fiide from our memories. This is no formal obituary. Every lino is dictated by the wannest emotion ol the heart. Yours, P. j j j j ( 1 . 1 , ' j . Free Soilers and General Scott. In our Inst No. wo expressed our surpriso I Ihul the Ohio Star uml other papers should , Imj silent, while Mr. Tilden ntul others were j to enlist their friend in support of Gencrul Scott. The lust No. of the Star ; containsun article, from w hich we extract the following : Of Mr. Tilden we hnvo but a word to say. Ho did not make a whig speech nor in the true sense of the term a partisan speech, though he criticised with point and plainness the Democratic nominee nud his position. His remarks, in the muiu, would have been well adapted to nu old liishioucd fiee soil meeting, uml with the exception of his avow ed purpose to support (Jen.

Scott i in h i present position, w ithout great inconsis- tcnrv.iuid without an nlMiulniimeiit of those j principle of lieedoiu, equality uiiil humanity tor which we have been contending in these columns for the last four years. Mr. Tilden hns confidence, from bis per sonal knowledge of General Scott, and from former conversations with him, tint the in terests of freedom will Imj sale in his hands. But Mr. Tildun's expectation cannot be re alized unless Gen. Scott violate hi pledge to the south, niuile in In prompt nuccptauco of the Platform. Will he violate that pledge? As n man of honor he cannot do il ami n strongly ns we disapprove of the pledge, we say he is hound to fulfil it if elected, and if he is cupuhlo ol ilelilierately making pledge, with a mental reservation, intending to vio late it, nud thus deceive those who have con fided in him, then i he unworthy of any body' confidence. Somebody must lie deceived. SlatehotJers have never been disappointed! II is sate to any Unit free Boilers will lie nciiher deceived nor disappointed in this campaign tbi they will not rust their confi dence on any such loose and sandy founda tion. On llie rock of principle, stem, unswerv ing, uncompromising, it is alone safe to plant llieir standard. There it ia planted, nud there it will bland. Laroe Strawberries.

Petition from the most emminent mer chants of Boston and New York, hove been cut to Congress for the recognition of tho independence of Haytl. The request is based entirely on commercial reasons, and contain some important statistics in regard to our commerce with Havti. Thi is ask ing too much of the south. What, recog nize the independence of a nation of nig' gcrs? A'rrrr will they consent to it. Not even if the merchant prince of Boston should so far conquer their prejudice for the sake of their trade, a to consent to the re ception of a able ambassador at Washing' ton. Not they. It would be tantamount to an acknowledgment of the right of their own (lave to independence. The Boston petition recite the following fact i That Hayti, it facto nn independent state since the riist of Jniiiinry, 1H04, by the dec laration of her independence, ami de jure since July, 1825, by the recognition of r ranee under diaries llie lenth, and ill the great power of Europe which, subse quently, lias lieen confirmed, hy treaties passed und rolified hclwecn the government of King Louis Philippe of thu French, and Hayti ns nn independent state has, however, never been recognized hy the United States ; for w hich this petition now most respectfully and earnestly prayelh: The great interest of our shipping, agri culture, growing manufactures, and com merce in general, imperatively require that this very important and growing trade should be regulated and established upon as firm n bnsi as it is already with regnrd to the most fhvored European nations while it now cxihts only by sufferance. The importance of this trado is seen in tho reports of the Secretary of thu Treasury of Ihe United Slates, ending June 1850 and 1851, w hich show : That in the fiscal year of 1850, wo had engaged in the Hayiieii trade ?4,U21 tuns of American shipping, which whs navigated by 3,504 American seamen, nml this independently of tliut trade in for eign shipping, clearing from und entering into our pons. And during the same year the United Slates exported to Hayti to the amount of $1,350,118, while to China, this country, in tho same year, only exported to the amount of $1,005 217, and only employ ed one half the tunnage w hich it has engaged in the liny lien trade tho tunnnge in the China Irudu being, in the year 1850, 'J?.),7'M tuns. The tunnnge of the United States engaged in the Irnde to Havti, in 1850, exceeds 20, 000 tuns; that to Ireland nud Scotland to gether; 30,000 tuns to the Hunse towns, and is as much us that to Belgium. It exceeds, hy two thousand Inns that trod- i.ig with both the Atlantic and Mediterranean ports of Spain, and doubles that trading with France on (lie Mediterranean, taking togeth er the French Went Indies, the French fish eries, r rencli uuiunu and the Islo of Hour bon. It equal tho aggregate ninount of that trading to Portugal, Madeira, the Azores, the Cupe ila Verd Inlands, Italy, Sicily Irieste, aim all tlio other Austrian purls, and 1 ur key. Il exceeds by more than 20,000 the trado wuh Holland and the Dutch East Indies. Brazil, with her population of 5,000)00 only employs one third more American shipping, and Mexico employ one-third less Amer ican (hipping, than Hayti. Indeed, Venezuela, Bolivia, the Cisplaline and Argentine Republic and Peru, all to gether only equal Hayti in this respect. Now, this llnytien Initio has increased this last year, 1851, $315,11)7, making, in all, a trade amounting lo $ 1 ,88D,!Hi8, or a ratio of increase ol nearly Vj per centum. And although our trade to China hns much increased during the last year, 1851, yet our tunnage in llie Hiiylicn trade is still equal to that with China, and our exports in do mestic, produce is only $170,573 more than that which we exported in Hayti during the same year tho amount of our import be ing $l,88i),9(i8, and our exports, in domestic produce, $l,(i7D,373, and in domestic and foreign $1,817,2J0. Indeed, with the 81 different countries with which the foreign commerce of the U. 8. is transacted, Hayti is the eigbih in the shipping employed ex clusively of New Granada, w hose ports serve merely as slopping places, or transits. Nor i the interest of the Hayiieii trade confined lo ono portion of thu United Stales, for the New England State export thereto their fish and domestics; Pennsylvania, Northern Virginia, Maryland and the West ern Slates, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois ond Missouri, their pork) Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois and Ohio, their Beef ; Philadelphia and Boston their snap; finally Maine, North and South Carolina, Virginia and Kentucky, their lumber rice and inline- ro. Uur muniitucturca ul new cnglaml, New York and Pennsylvania, have begun to supply the Haylien market with our cheap colion goods, and even those ol Oeorgiu might, with the same enternriso, compete a successfully with European, goods, u do already those which are now exported to tout market liy our rising iimniiliiciures. Mexico wilh a population of 8,000,000 touk last vear from the United Stale to the amount of $315,507, less than Hayti, and employed 2ti,000 ton less than our trado to the latter. Thru the trade to llnyti ia more profitable; for from the former our vessel return to ballast or go elsewhero to seek a enrgo, while from Hayti a freight may always be bad ; if not always in coffee, certainly in muhogany, logwood or hemp. Hayti import from the U. State eleven time more cotton goods than Cuba the last yenr's report showing the comparison of $2,090,000 worth of ex port to Hayti, and only $20,000 worth to Cuba. 'llnyti consume three time inoro of our flour than Cuba; six limes more pork; five time more oan 151t5,0!r3 boxes, to 3d!),- 748 in Cuba ; six time more pickled fish 10,289 barrel, and much more dried and smoked fish; being $2(12,000 compared wilh V4,UUU winch lust article (hah,) must ue considered of the highest importance to the United Stntn, the fishing trade being the grent nursery of our seamen. Indeed, it w us the fisheries which' gave Ihe first impetus to hip-building, when we had no other market but liberated and independent Hayti ; all the other principal coloniee being closed to our enterprise directed to that trade, . I And these beneficial effects are known in every town and city of New England, and felt and acknowledged a the origin of some or the princely fortune of the lam die and merchant of thnra enterprising State which have carried our flag to every country on the globe. Now the West Indie i our great ml principal foreign market for the afore said snides and for which Hayti is sf ill our best customer, and stands foremost on the list as our largest market in the world, and fiir above all other who trade with u in this iinimrtant article. Indeed our, export of dried and pirkled fish to all the West Indie (Cubn therein in cluded) in 1850, amounted to $373,886: of which llayii Krfik $150,802, which Inst amount of the llaytien trade is nhout one third of the aggregate amount nf nur trade in that article to all the world ($1541,494.)

Dr. Lowell contributes to the last volume of the Massachusetts Historical Society's Collec tions an article in which may be found tho fol lowing interesting stutcmcnt. Dr. Lowell msy well say ho has an honest pride in making it : "In tho fourth volume of tho Collections, first series, pago 203, in a communication from Dr. Delknnp, i. the following statement : 'Ihe present constitution of Mas.Hchu.ctts was estab lished in 17'JO. Tlio first articlo in tho Bill of Rights ncrt. that all men aro born free and equal. This was inscrtod not merely as a moral or historical truth, but with a particular view to establish tha liberation of the negroes on gon eral principle, and so it waa understood at the time by tho pcoplo at large.' I feel an honest pride in saying, at I hav authority to tay, that this nluuso wns introduced by my father, the late Judge Lowell, for tho purposo ubovo stated, and that, on its adoption by tho Convention, he offered his services as a lawyer, gratuitously to any slave who might wisa to substantiate his claim to freedom." J udgo Lowell was a member of the Committee for refraining and reporting a Constitution. The spirit of opposition to human bondsge which moved him then, lives now In his son, tho Rev. Dr. Lowell, and hit son, tho poet, Jsmos Russell Lowell. The family, for several generations, has been a distinguished ono, and the time will como when ita representatives will bo honorod no less for this than for other great and good qualities that it has always boon persistent in its lovo of Liberty. Standard. Elizabeth Parker. This girl, it will be remembered, is the sinter of Rachel Parker, whose recent ubdue lion hns excited so much feeling in Chester County. Elizabeth wa abducted first and sold a a alnve, first at Baltimore and after ward at New Urleuus. The citizen of Chester county, believing the girl to be free, interested themselves in her behalf, entered into a bond of $1500 fur her return, und con ditioned for the payment of that sum if she did not prove to be Ihe said Elizabeth Par ker. The Legislature of Pennsylvania, hav ing had the euhject b-ought to their notice, authorized counsel in her behalf lo be em ployed, and Ihe payment of all expenses to regain her freedom thu seconding the praiseworthy effort of the citizen of Chester county and of Ihe city of Baltimore. She ho under thi arrangement been brought buck to Baltimore, where the question of her freedom is to be legally tested. To witnesses from Chester county, we understand, instant ly identified her in a crowd of aome 30 color ed women. There ia no doubt that aha is a free girl.
