In addressing tint public in behalf nf the Young People's Assueiut inn, iho first cotinid eration, is a definite understanding of its designs. In llie cull fur this rnnvrtitioti, we nrc informed tlmt it design is l consult r tlio cluiins of liu until i ty In equal right. By examination vu discover existing in Bocioty, H miillitiuh) of wrong) mid tli.it those wrongs nut only exist nt tin) present, lint hnvo ever existed in n variety of phases Ihro' nil past nuos; neither aro they confin ed to any nno country, lint nro found under every form of government tliu world over. Tim ostensible design nf legislation, wo nro told, is to legalize certain principles .if just ice in order to secure to individual. ami tui tion, H hut nro considered iheir inalienable right. Am tint law of nil government hsvo failed to circet (hi, wo me l d (o con elude, tf Kit they nrn in error with regard lo the element of justice, mid what constitutes nattiml rights; or Unit laws liuvo not been based is pin ported lo Im, upon principles nf equ.il jiiBl ico to nil. ' Premising from satis factory evidenco that both thnsti error are Involved in t lit social, nnd political abuse thnt exist nmnng mankind we nrn led In Br eft n higher standard for justice liy Insliiii tlng nn enquiry into iIkihc natural claims constituting liiiiunn right; nnd to demand that political enactments I in linked upon de ductions arising liom natural truth. Our first object then will lie, to found u declaration of rights upon tlio iinpuriinl in terpretation of nature's constitutional char ter. Tlmt wo exist, is co more n self-evident fact, than tlmt nature ia true ; a the evidence of either cannot ho strengthened by demon titration. Assuming mil 11 1 u 10 ho true, the power governing nature must he alike line, an proved hy the haimouy of nil niitural law, adopting mean to end, throughout nil ex istence whether evinced ns n unity, or a individualities. Therefore, the infinity of natural existences proclaim nn iiiliuile l'ow er. The udaptalioii of nature V laws, demon strates infinite wisdom. Tho need. of nn turo being supplied hy iiatuie, in just pro portions, uniting tho capaeitii'ii, mid reipiiro liientM of every iudikidiialiiy, in an umuiMuk nlilu atuuduid of justice, and gnodnes. Thus, wo have revealed lo u in nature, n .God whose attribute, tig inanifi dteil in his works, tire a sura guidu to all lesser intelli gence. We have evidence that mail pna ecsst' (hi so saiuo utuibolr.t, finite and mi developed. That hu pusscsM'S power us mi individualiiy, is sell'-uvidenl ; though that rumor he derivative, and ilepcndant. His deduetinus hy n process of reasoning from causo to fi'ect nnd vico verso, prove (lis wisdom. That an idea of justice lu in herent in every intelligent being, i deinon Stralud by that inward setisuliou produced by . witnessing nn net of injustice. Even tho Veriest savago if unbiased by education, is . convicted of wrong, nnd regards ns sacred the instincts, and requirements of nature; for he perceives that whutever nature need, is provided in nature, ami it application is a natural right. Tho first requirement of mini's Diiimal n Hlure, is nourishment to sus tain bis present existence, As all natural laws, including pure instinct aro sinless, ' being the very clement of (Jod's will, and 1 ordained of bun to uovcrn nuturu; as a consequence, the application of llioso pro. "visions to nature's corresponding wants, are ' sinless ulso. Jtul those Uod-liko attributes of man being iinpcrluclly develojied, pervert lis oniinal iiiktiuct, anil these auiiiisl pro. pcusities reacting upon these attributes, both nro perverted. Tor it is a uotorioua fuel, that man is not fully governed by cither. Were be governed hy pure instinct, be would be a sinless aiiiuitd ; if otherwise, were be completely controled by thoso Godliko ut .. tributes perfectly duveUqwd, be wuuld be a sinless Spirit ; because those attributes being of themselves spiritual, and being hit attrib utes, would constitute hia very identical self; for nt know nothing of any being, or tub- stnncc, nrido frnm it altribtite or qualilies. Ileum Minn's earthly struggle is n wnrfnro between bis animal intinet nnd hi undevel oped divinity. Were the latter perfectly developed, it would n completely harmonize with hi animal nature, a tho rMiprcmo Di vinity does with tho material univcre. Hut mankind instead nf imitating the order of nature, bus over looked i:pon her law nnd monitions, ns something too gross nnd grov elling lo dictate intellect ; consequently thoso instructive nnd sublime realities, but few nf which nro within innn's comprehension, nro overlooked and rejected ns comparatively worthless, for some jituKriiiiluriil ideality, having no existence save in his own perver ted iiiinginntion. Not only have the nioni lioua of nature been njectud, but tenson, nature' highest dovelopeineiit. Ocensiou ally reason has stood forth nnd demanded to he beard, hut the cry of carnal, earthly, dev ilish, has drowned the feeble voice, and the culprit, nuiid tho tumultuous anathemas of the ovcrw helming multitude, has been con demned lo nn ignominious prison. Yet there never bus been one step taken, in nil the devious, protracted innrcli from snvngo lo civilized lile, only ns renson, hy scientific calculation, ha practically adapted the laws of tiiiliiro to tlio various int.", thnt now so strikingly distinguish those opposite suites ol soeielv. Having partially examined tho natural light of Immunity, lei us now exauiino it wrong, which lllaekslonc defines to bo n lepriviition of right. The first nnd greatest of nil wrong i the outrageous nggrcgrion of man, upon the riidi's of woman. The uimntui til exercise of hi superior phys ical strength is without n parallel in till the jutisdieliuli of instinct. No other mnlo animal wns ever known lo infringe upon the right of tho female, or pervert tho harmony of bis species, by tho least restriction of those feminine qualities thai ore n distinctively recognized among them, ns iu the human species. Tho brute mother bus no fears that the sire of her niV- spiing uill uso bis greater strength to sepa rate tlicm from her natural guardianship by viriiui of nny higher claim of paternity. Hut man regardless of nature's claims, bus usurped the prerogative of making Inws, without woman's nssent which have outraged every (iod iven right, hy bis self' legalized superiority ; tearing asunder tho sncred lies of maternal instinct, hy n forcihlo execution of bis unholy decreo of paternal precedence. Human sympathy cannot, without horror, eonteniplutn the dark history of woman's wrong iu past ngr, where wo find Iter crushed below iho very brute, hy the most laborious, and menial servitude to her tyran ieal husband ; where she has been forcibly compelled to live with him nl his vtiidi, mid lit his will driven nway iu want nnd degra dation; v Lib: her children have been torn from her arms, nidi as lit I lu remorse, as ft ti it from the senseless tree. Even nt tho pres ent, in our own boasted land of freedom, we still find woman treated as nn inferior being, compelled hy taxation In support n govern men! in whose laws she is allowed no voice ; In rear colleges that shn is forbidden to en ter; lo earn property over which she bus no control ; compelled to perforin the some la bor ns limn, for one third Iho pay ; compelled to give up her children to her husband in ensu of divorco ; compelled to see her sons, dear lis her heart's blood, dragged lo war to be shot down ns beasts of prey, having no legal vnieo to stay the umbitioii demands of iho military chicl'tuius who rule bcr country's destiny. She is compelled to witness their degrada tion, n:,d ultimata ruin, by the legalized rob bery of tealing nway their senses by ardent spirits, imil with them, their money; or whatever other abuses her country per mils; for she is allowed no authority In tho laws Ihal govern tlio dearest interests, that thu iifl'cctinnnto heart ever cherished, gho is compelled, tifier bearing all these unjust dis abilities herself, to see her tenderly reared daughters ushered out into tho world to pass through the same ordeal. Yet, if she com plain, she is scoffed nt, and accused of in gratitude to her PRoTKcrona. If she refuse confinement within lire narrow sphero pro serilied by ninn, and persist iu her claims of equality, she is denounced ns an inlidel, for denying bis divine right to rule over her. Another outrage tixm humanity is the claim of one niHii to rule over and enslave another, liccnuse of different color. There is no greater variety of color, or feature, among tho different rates of men, than is found among thu several tribes, iu the sumo spec ies of animals. Among our herds, who ev er (bought one color superior to another, only oi a matter of fancy color being only dijfcrtnt arrangement of the bh:iio element ary particles. Though differing in form and feature, was it ever token o evidence of inferiority? The white mnn after claiming dominion over the fvuinlo, one bnlf our spe cies; claims, in our country, the right to bold ns chnttlo slnves, one sixth of till our population, for the very logicul reason, (They are colored.) If wo call for bis nuthority for ruling the female, he cites ns lo bis theology; lo the original curso against woman. In testing theological creed, by Iinturnl truth, we must not localize our comparisons. There is not n nation on cnrih thnt ha niado nny ndvnnees in civilization, but have tradition lo account for the origin ol' evil ; not one fourth of which believe woman lo bo the originator. Yet there never has been a no tion discovered, iu which woman is not op pressed, and degraded my man. Tho same reasoning will npply lo tlio op pression of tho African race. Our theology again cites ns to thu curse ngaiust Canaan. As nations who never beard of our peculiar theology, enslave and oppress all within their power, there must lie sumo more universal reason for this similarity. Tho plain reason in litis: Mull never lacks nuthority to do what be desires, provided he bus the power; for bis gods always give him whatever nu thority he w ishes, and fight nil bis battles, whether they bo of wood, or atone, or nn ideuliiy. Tho god of every n.nn is generally a counterpart of himself; delighting in cru elty, revenge, nnd domination, if his wor shipper happen to bo of that type. What ever he approves, bis god sanctions; what ever he claims, bis god decrees; nnd so on with all tho aspirations of hi perverted pas sion, mid his executive instruments, nrc hi superior bodily strength and urt in mental subjugation. Another wrong, is the unequal distribution of the products of the earth; which with hold from a part of mankind their natural sustenance, while another part is ovei bur dened with n surplus. Man's undue provi sions for thu future, regardless of nature's continual supply, is one of bis many inven tions. A most instructive anecdote, giving a philosophical hint, is related of n unlive Hrn zilliiui. When told of the immonse treasures of iho French nobility; ha enquired, what became of their wcahh after Ibeirdenlhr On being told that it was transmitted to their children, he exclaimed with astonishment, hat he was sure Iho I'rciichmen were fouls; that bo and bis people bad no such foolish cares; that the earth had always yielded n supply for them, nnd they doubted not it would yield the same :o their children. We nro well uwnro that this simple faith in untuio could not become practical where one man has a Itgul right to iufringo upon tho natural rights of o hundred others, by Hinuouliziug a bundled fold more of the products of our common heritage, tbun is necessary for bis own family wauls. He might w ith seeming impunity heap up gold and silver, nnd all tho gaudy superfluities Ihal prido and vanity could suggest ; but "to w ithhold from nny human being, the privi lege of cultivating and reaping his natural share of thu products of earth, is nn unright eous violation of iinturnl rights, nnd n palpn blo sin against thu laws of nature's (iod. As our business in this world, is w ith our fellow being ; our highest practical duty evidently consists, in treating them with like justice ns ourselves. This is the grand desid eratum of ethical science; the fundamental principles of which (if founded iu truth) must accord with our nntural rights. One great mistake of mankind has been, civiliza tion has preceded science ; that is, man has attempted lo improve upon nature, before understanding bur laws. Comparing the wisdom of nature's Clod, w ith his own nar row views, her seeming evils occasioned a mistrust, and w ith Ids liillo dangerous knowl edge, be has, iu attempting to remedy those supposed evils, perverted the just designs of Deity. A science has advanced, we seo mnn (lin eal ding Iu fears, nnd bis supposed improve ment. Hu no longer apprehends a collision in tho planetary system or a dissolution of terrestrial nffiiiiiies. The physician no lon ger draws tho life blood from tho veins of his patients; for bo now perceives more clearly, iho wisdom ofuatiuo in its supply, nnd its resources w hen its order is disturbed. The philosophical expounder of luw, now contends, tlmt no laws ore valid, (but aro antagonistic to iho laws of nature. Thu theologian, though most tenacious of hi tra ditional creods, is beginning lo think G'od a wiser, and belter being, us be, himself im proves in wisdom and goodness. We no longer benr him contend ihal God created u pnrt of his Intelligent creatures, expressly to glorify him by writhing eternally in un quenchable flames. As be more clearly per ceives thnt the penulty of a broken luvv of our physical bodies, is but n partial suspen sion of nature's bnrinouions relations ofcutise and efTuct, be is beginning to opply the same casouing to spirit. . Hu no longer believe in it God of ven geance, hut that n violation of metaphysical law, is hut a suspension of the same har monious relations of cause and effect, in our spiritual natures, producing ns n legitimate result, a prnportionnlo amount ofmicry. Another mistake of mankind hu been ; in stead of selecting from the ideas of past nges, (hose niornl truths that accord wilh nature, they hnve held them nil sacred in proportion lo their nntiquity, nnd claimed them ns pre cedent for nil succeeding generation. Having examined the lights, w rong, nnd mistakes of mankind ; let u In imagination retrospect iho past history of our race, and g'enn from it il.uk and bloody records, those truthful inspirations, thai have occasionally illumined the moral atmosphere. Din ing all the long and fearful reign of man's selfish propensities, there have liei n fo'.md, iu al most every nge, nnd every laud, some minds that have caught ilm divine truth of nature, nnd urrTfd llieiu upon iimii, ns a rule of prac tice. Minds that hi.vn penetrated the thick veil of higoled error, nnd traced llu jusl de signs nf Deity iu the moral world, n in the pi j sieal ; iu the government of spirit, ns iu matter. Many of thoso mind nro found among the Jewish sage. An Isaiah boldly rijeeled the lit just tradition of hereditary guilt ; and looking bevond the narrow limit of common vision, he saw lint man must dis card those unnatural nnd unrighteous tradi tions, that had originated in the curlier stages of mental progress. 1 lo that ns the cndirju Cod within, became more fully de veloped, mull would rise superior to !.is un due selfishness, and hi holding the bcnulilid order of imture, would bu content lo share equally with his fellow man, tho homilies of earlli. Carrying out this suhliiiio idea, be prophetically discovered that there would be, iu the distant future, such a maturity of wisdom, mid such a pi ogress in l ighteous lirss, that man would cease to war upon his brother man, and that the lion, nnd tho lamb ; the despotic Warrior, nnd the oppressed sub ject would indeed dwell together In unity. A Confurins, six hundred years before the cluistinn era, grasped the golden sentiment, of .iiiing lo others what wo wish theui to do to us; which with thu many other moral precepts embodied iu his philosophy, has had n hallowed influence over the va it, anil pop ulous region, embracing the emp'ue of China, mid its dependences. A Sii-ratcs, discovered the immortal self, without other guide limit Iho deep, inspiring thoughts that stirred within him. l!y analogical coinpaiison be came to the belief, that like himself, till oth ers were possessed of un inmiorlal self; and that during its stay iu the mortal, there were provisions made, and designed for eveiy need; nnd thnt those needs being lilt hy all equally ; all were uliko entitled lo a supply. Notwithstanding the litter contempt iu which woman was held during ihu mail reign of hero-worship ; yet he, even then, dared to contend that thoso feminine qualities, that were by nature intermixed w ilh thu mascu line in oil Iho near relation of life, should in liku maimer bu blended iu every depart ment of government. That woman should be instructed equally with man, anil with him enjoy equally all the blessing of life, which were so plainly designed for equal distribution, A heutheu though ho tuny bu styled; yet during thu lapse of more than twenty cen turies, bow few have caught thu idea ol na ture's ti no God, who regardless of the ego tistic claims of mortals, grants liu higher rights to one than is provided in nature for nil. I'j e-cuiinciiily supciiur to all other teach ers, is tho meek and lowly Jesus. With what n truthful comparison between moral duties, mid natural laws, ho closes bis inimitable sermon on the mount. After appealing to tho moral sensibilities, Willi all the eloquence of love, ullerly denying thoso old vengeful trndilious, recorded ill Jewish history, (which liuvo given so much license to wnr mid op pression,) ho bids his lollowera lore others ns themselves, to love even enemies, nnd to re turn good for evil, that they niny be like their heavenly Father, who n.i.kclh his sun lo risu on tho evil, and on thu good; mid sendetb rain on the just, and on the unjust. Again appealing to their reason (which wo uru lulight is vi ry erroneous) he hid theiii look upon thu lilies of Ihu field, und the hiiils of Iho air, and understand, that iu thu eter nal Father had provided lor them; even so had bu provided lor man. It was evidently tho ilcbign ol Christ lu suppress mail's undue provision lor tho future, when he rulcired 1 1 i in lo the provisions existing in nature. His system of religion being professedly the basis of oil laws governing most of tho civil ized world, it deserves more than a passing notice. Not meddling with thu contentious questions of his divinity, nnd vicarious monu ment ; let us treasure up this combination of natural mid moral truths, which he, so do voledly strove to promulgate. It is a subject of tho deepest regret, that bis niosl : righteous precepts have been so perverted by inter mixture with those of hi follower, ns to in duce so many In reject them, n insufficient to secure universal justice. Taking advant age nf thu popularity of bis religion, ambi tious nnd tyrunicnl men hnvo used il lis nn insti utiii'iit of gaining ascendency over their fellow beings. Know ing full well that a mnn is but half conquered when bis physical body is sub dued ; they have artfully thrown nrouud his purn system of morals, (n explained hy hi liilluwcrs) such nn unquestionably saoelily, with such nn linpardonabln criminality at tached to tho least departure, that ihey bound llie eoneience,wiili n Irnfiild stronger chain, than i required tu bind llie body. When we look around upon the rhris'iuu w oihl, and see mnn cnishing his brother man hy every specie of servitude, and claiming hi niiihoi ity for so doing, frmn the religion of Christ ; wu wonder not that Ihu philan thropist question that authority. Hut umong all the despot, (nun the nillul Constantino, who canonized such of thu tally vviitiiif ns gave him divine nuthority over hi sill jects, down to the Rev. Mr. .Vaudeville of Albany, who recommends nipping tho Woman's Rights questions iu the bud, none have re ceived any such authority in the tenebiugs of Christ. Let tho oppo.cr, ns his soul re volts ul tho nboniiiuiblu abuses tolerated by christian churches, remember that it was not Christ that said, 'Submit yourselves lo every ordiaiiro of man for the Lord' sake, w hether it be lo king as (upreme, or lo gov ernor; for Ibis is the will of (iod." It whs not Christ that bid every soul bn subject to higher powers: because all those powers nre oiih.ined of God. This license lu tyrants is dimnetiically opposed to tho commands of Christ to bis diciple. When lin y disputeil by the way, which should bo greatest, nso'ir sects do at the present, he expressly liu bade the exercise of authority nno over thu other. The slaveholder's license, " gervnnts idicy your Minsters" is not from Christ. Ho taught us to call no muii muster; and expressly de clared it lo be bis minion lo preach ih liv er nnco to the captive, with peace timl pii.ul will to nil. Tho liceiisu In crush womnii, bidding wives bo subject lo their husbands, tn keep silence iu Iho church, forbidding them lo teach, is tint from Christ. The idea of man's being defiled by woman, nnd the recommendation of celibacy, received no shadow of nuthority from Christ. ' From this idea originated such nhomiuahlH cor ruptions, in onn brnneh of tho christian church, thai rulers were obliged lo have re course lo licensed concubinage among the priesthood; which Hume says, muy bo con sidered an appeal from civil mid ecclesiastical tyranny, tu the more just, nnd more virtuous law s of nature. Assuming nature's (iod, to be true In na ture claim; it is utterly inconsistent to sup pose that He would institute n system of moral government antagonistic to natural laws. In nature we find the mnsculico mid feminine elements completely harmonizing. From the lowest trnco of sexual distinction, iu 'hu vegetable kindom, up, through every variety, nno sex is as fully, und as perfectly developed ns the ollii f. The same order is observed in the nnlurnl relations of nil animals, including mnn. An equal number of each sex nro ushered into being, promiscuously distributed iu families with no natural barrier to separate their so. eial intercourse, or retard their equal (level opement. Although what nre termed the masculine qualilies, predominate, in man, and the feminine iu woman; yet both ore blended in their individual constitution; for both possess the same passions, und ufiec lions. Hul mail has rendered this di-liuc-lion ui biliary, und unnatural, by claiming tho masculine qualilies of bis nature, ns f in'or,nnd rejecting the feminine ns inftrioi: From his very infancy ho is tiiught lliin. Even bis boyish plays have reference to the distinctive election of qualifies suited to w hat is termed true manhood. If, hy sudden emotion, bo Is overcome and weeps, ho com plains of being unmanned. If ho manifest n high degree of sympathy, or love, be is called womanish ; that is, unmanly. Thus his best directions uru fin hidden utleruiice, vvhdo his educational depravity is everywhere uialii listed in vvc.rl.iio mid dumitialioii. On the contrary, in tho education of woman, ell the masculine qualilies uru suppressed, and the feminine, though culiivsiud lo Ihu exiitui", are confined nnd forbidden mi ihlloenee whero they nre most needed, that is, 10 b;. lince the masculine qualities of the other sex. It is no longer a subject of wonder, that man's baser passions predominate ; which will ever bo tho case, while m biiraiy cultiva tion perverts the order of nature. .M.,n has ahvajs claimed hi Creator lo Ih: masculine ; yet as bo now begins to believe him a God of lov e, it Is hoped that while be honors this truly fu mini no attribute in God, ho will learn to appreciate, tho same ottiibuto in womnitt nnd claim fur il a more exleiulcrl influence. Mankind nt best Is srill shrouded in Ipnorsrp, nnd il is w ise lo lay bold of every light whos! gi-ui il beam hnve blest our earthly nbodn. Li t u then garner up these precious moral truths, ihnt necoril with the provisions nnd claim of nature. Ami where will we find system, so natural, so prncticnl, am! so lien venlv. a Ihe religion of Jcn Christ. Tbero is salvation in its precepts. Snlvntion from 'm itgninst our fellow beings for we end conceive of no higher morsl duly than it in pulcati's ; no purer spirit llian it breathes. Ii dissolve nn immortality after which nil aspire. Without deception, it tenches Ihnt happiness, or misery, is the consequence ol obeying, or disobeying tho divine Inw of our Creator. Let ns not bo deceived, If llie iloctiine of eternal progression, which is io sc.iibed on cvciy page iu tho "rent book of limine, be true, Ihere follows A fearful loss If we pervert our God-given tntents, during our earthly existence. Lei ns then beware bow we rtject such n holy light, thnt noC w ill. -landing its adulteration, bos done infi nitely more to enlighten mankind, than all other systems of religion, nnd morality com bined. While we confidently hoe to effect, without bloodshed, a moral revolution; let us not fiirgel llie disastrou results Of former revolution. While wo fearlessly contend for the exercise of reason, let us not forgot the example of bloody France, whoso pre tended lils'rntors.iu fleeing from ouo extreme of laiKilacism, wreck themselves, nnd Iheir country upon Iho other. Reason wns made lo rt ign. lis light may be, na it ever has been, obstructed ; but it can never bo ex tinguished. , i A I'yth.'igorus wns compelled In tench the ct.imorocs multitude, that Ihc earth was fix ed, w ith the sun, stars, nnd planets revolving nioimd il ; nnd centimes passed away before Iheir offspring could receive demonstrative evidence to tho contrary ; while bis reason ing pupils wero secretly tnught the tiuo systematic nrinugement of the universe.-. Analogous lu this is the popular opinion of nny ngr, Immovably fixed in the centre, while nny oilier opinion, (tho' founded in truth,) is considered a lesser, nnd an inferior light; nnd is compelled to rctTvh'immuml, until it Itecomes sufficiently luminous to eclipse the paler nucleus; nnd by its own inherent su periority of attraction, proves its ccntricily. The advocate of equal right, in our dny, find themselves now occupying tho same position in tho moral wmld, ihnt the ami wns supprsed to occupy in the aolnr system, in iho days ef I'ythngorus. And, if tlio principles claimed hy them, bo indeed the eternal laws ordained of God to govern the moral world ; just so sure ns tho sun's trim position is now acknowledged; even so will those natural truths, that demonstrate human equality, become tho unchanging central basi of I'MVERSAt, JI SVKT. " During our remai k wo havo niilicipneil Ihe demand that laws bo founded on natural truth; nnd we now close by anticipating the change that must iueviluhly take plaoe iu the political world. In contending for universal snllinge, we find that principles of justice assume dilfereut phases as they aro denied or enjoyed ; for thoso very men who wcru onco denied tho right of suffrage, when fraiichised, havo been among the most zealous in denying tho snmo right to nil over whnm they have had nny control. Hut nothing is moru absurd than the idea of a finality in human legislation, so long as the mass of mankind nre resolved in ddli cnl slruta, ono reared above another, until few find themselves occupying a supreme llevoliuti; vvbilu thoso below possessing the sutue specific gtnvity, inciitully, are kept down for iho lime being, only by an extra neons force, that contains within itself, no melius of reproduction. Tho equilibrium of hiiiimu rights is destroyed. And the mighty governments of earth, being roared in oppo sition to natural laws, contain in their com position, the very elements of their own dis solution. ' - lu vain do tho supremo potentates call upon the upheaving mass below, to submit In iheir mithorily. In vain is tho demand echoed by every sub tyrant, down into Iho depths of crushed hnmnnily. From tho lowest ranks, thiough tho wboln struggling phalanx, thu response comes up in thunder tones, "God made u free!", Yos, the op pressed female, with her long agea of wrong thu degraded down trodden sluve, that now wilil, cs beneath thu lash of his preten ded owner the poor wanderer, thut tins o loot of eanh from which lo gather bis food nil, all shall bu IVec ! Free la purtuke end enjoy thu bounties and blessings, that lia lui u'a God. lias provided fur equal distribution umong his created intelligences. . ' . 'Whrn t'io immortal Sidney was told thnt lie mi;;ht save his Ufa by telling a faliehood by ill living bis hand writing, h said 'Whon Ood hum biuuhi mo into s dilemma, In whiub 1 in net ussul n lie or loose my life, ha gives ne a clear indication of my dutv, which is to prefer death to lutsehood. .
