Death of Daniel Webster. Mr. Webster died at hit rosidenoe in Marsh field at 3 o'clock, on Sunday morning last. The event had been expoctcd from tho Friday pro vious and feared for a much a longer period. Mr. Webster has long had the reputation, how justly we will not say, of the master intcl lect of tho age. Hit eloquence hat often pro duced a most profound impression and may havo turned tho tide of our national affuirt, on important measures. Mr. Webster's admirers were most hearty, enthusiastio and devoted, but he lacked tho genius to attach to himself the pcoplo and thus secure the ends he sought. IIo schemed timorously, and compromised without principlo and thus tignally failed. Had he heroically dushed forward to win or perish, hit boldness would have secured the admiration of thousands, who now coldly assout to his intel lectual superiority or turn in disgust from his moral cowardice. The infamous legislation of the last two years, owes Its existence to his de cision to go with the strong tgaintt the right. His 7th of March speech was the pivot on which turned tho tide of legislation against tho Wilmot proviso and in favor of tho fugitive slave law. It ia a melancholy record for tho pen of history, that Calhoun and Clay and Wobster, tho three mot renowned Sonators of our country and the our country and the ae, devoted thoir latost and Brightest efforts to tho rxtonsioii and perpetuation of human bond age. Lot the youth of our land who are prompted by impulses of ambition rcmcmbor this, and at Ihey would leavo a namo which posterity ahull honor, let them stand by justice, though it be tt the cott of prctcnt sacrifice JJaniol cbstcr has passod away, and yot the nation which ha been proud before the world of hit intolloot and his oloquence, will be penetrated with no profound sorrow, for in their hearts the people know he bat eminently helped to fix upon the nation atrocious guilt, and inef faceable infamy.

We omit several articles to day to make room for the cheering and important communications from Michigan. The Convention Wat large, and all, and more than could have been ex pected. The time of the Convention and of the labors of our friendt In Michigan hat bcon in tome respects unfavorable for the most success ful effort of moral anti slavery. Tho whirlwind of partizan effort, which just now like a blast ing sirocco, la sweeping over the land, leads men to despiso the truth, by turning a deaf ear to its voice and utterly disregarding its most solemn injunctions. True, the character of tho present ' fintitiat ,tilfti ti.. ttrinrin.tlv titniTfirt llnin lbs " " ' " 1 l ' l n " 1 question of freedom, has in some small measure counteracted this evil but still it has remained a vast obstnelo In tho way of our effort. But liko tried and faithful soldiers of freedom as they are, our anti-slavery lecturers havo faced obstacles and dilliculties, in this case, with nio.'t encoursging results. Mr. Urifling't sickness has been a serious embarrassment to tho plant of our agents, as well at a disappointment to tho Michigan fiicnds, as it withdrew him altogether, and in part, Mrs. Grilling also from tho field. In con sequence Mr. rillsbury's labors were greatly augmented. But ho has every reason to be of good cheer at tho manner of their termination. At all events, we arc. A Friend writing from there toys : "Mr. I'illsbury has labored with all his might and with much success. Tho radical abolitionists liko him much." And so they should. Our correspondent, might doubtless have added, that pro-slavery conservatism hated him most cordially. If not, it must bo mate rially different in Michigan, from sonio other places we know of. Andordinarily.pro-slarrry hato it quite ts high an order of commendation of fidelity at anti-slavery love. Tho resolutions embodying tho principles of tho Convention, show that tho abolitioniits nl Michigan have not entered this wurfuro without counting the cost. They understand tho power and resources of their enemy, and propose such measures as general experience, common sense, and moral principlo unito to dictate. They are no triflcrs to amuso themselves and others with falto or comparatively unimportant (though may be partially truthful) issues. They strike st jnifry, not at its adjuncts or its accidents. Thoy aro fearlessly heroic, for they assault without hope or promise of quarter, thoc over shadowing and thoroughly manned bulwarks of slavery the government and the church. Tho powers of slavery arc concentrated within their walls there should tho assault be mode. God speed them in it. If aught within our power thcro is that can be done, our Buelc notes shall cheer them in tho fight. It is a war with principalities and powers, with spiritual t'nd governmental wickedness in high places, and no man's or woman's aid will be despised or go unrowarded. V congratulate our friendt in Michigsa in tbair organisation. Tbeit past history gfrss good eviCenee of their future efficiency. And we hope the coming year will tee great progreai mado U abolitionlsing the State. When our anti-slavery politicians get through their election and get time to read and think of them, wo intend to republish these Michigan resolutions, and call their attention to them, for we aro turo they aro worthy of moro atten tion than they will give them now.

During the last week, a miseriiblo victim of intemperance, was murdered by his drunken companions in PittHhuigh. Tlie fatal afluir occurred in tho house of Jano Taylor, and one of her sons was committed to prison charged with participating in the crime. Subsequently the mother ami her three remaining sons, comprising her whole fumily, in dcfuult of bail, to appear 08 wit ncsses against the accused ton and brother, were also committed to juil. One of the ons, a boy of only ttn yeart of aet. This mny he civilization, justice and humanity but it sounds to us very much like envngcism and cruelty. To imprison a whole fumily for audi a purioso we had never thought of as being poosible. They mny he ignorant and vicious; but this is surely no wny to re form them, especially that youth of so tender age. Is it possible that the civilization uud humanity of the nineteenth century can find no better wny than this, for the adminisira lion of justice! Thut theso persona should be incarcerated with condemned fellons be cause they are supposed to be unintentionally cogniBont of the alleged offence of their rcl alive and his associate ! Even admitting, at ia alleged, thut hanging, like sluvery, is "a divine inetitution," we should certainly be inclined to let this one victim escape, rather than doom his whole family to this fullon's chool, to be harassed by weeks, purhapa months of imprisonment, with the terrible thought that it was all to compell them to become accessory to the ignominious pun ishment of their relutive, We kuow that in our cities, especially in our sea porta, Individuols strangers are often imprisoned for months, to secure their attendance as witnesses. But it seems to us an outrage upon personal liberty and justice, for which no resulting good can ordinarily compensate. It is lime that it was met with the remouttranca of all the humane. Michigan State Anti-Slavery Convention. Dr.AB Mahius: V'o have just been holding a State Anti-Slavery Convention in Michigan. It has equaled in interest and numbers the highest expectations and hopes we had cher ished. The woik of regenerating the State had been well commenced, by tho labors of James W. Walker and others particularly by Mr. Walker. It hat bten still further prosecuted by the short mission of the QrifHngs and my self) and tho Stato Convention, I trust has tei (he came np for iltclf. Thcro is no reason why Michigan should not hereafter be known and re cognized as fully enlisted in, and committed to the cause of genuine, radical anti-slavery. The convention held or. Suturday and Sunday. It was in the Odd Fellow's Hall, hero in Adrian. The interest continued to deepen in intensity, to tho close. The resolutions, as you will see, were of tho most thorough character. Tho defenco of them by Jmcphine Grilling, James Walker, and others, seemed sufficient to tho audience, and every one of them wa adopted with great unanimity, if not unanimously. As there is at proscnt no State organization In Michigan, tho Convention took measures for commissioning a " Stute Central Committee," to tako tho supervision, somewhat, of the movement in the eauso for tho ensuing year. A Committee of twenty of tho tried and truo men and omen in tho enterprise, wat elected, (a quorum of whom reside in or near Adrian), who will u, t towards this State, in tho samo capacity and relation of tho Executive Com mittee of tho Western Anti-Slavery Society towards the field of its operations. And tho Resolution for raising tho committee, provides that it "act a fur at possible, in auxiliarijship Kith the Western ami American Anti-Klnirry Societies." So in effect, there it now a State organization, auxiliary to tho l'arcnt Anti-Slavery Society. And truer or more effective helpers in tho work, can no where be found. The Causa in tho Stato it indebted much to tho different qualitict and degrees of Friendt or Quakers ; who have at length ripened into w lint is now known as tho " Michigan Yearly Meeting of l'rogrcssivo Friends." They havo built their platform broad enough for Universal Humanity, and laid in extra plank enough, "for the rest of mankind," as fnst as they shall bo born. Tho "Yearly mcccting" was noth ing more nor lest than a thorough-going Re formatory Convention- The ' Book of I)ici plino" was consulted, just as much as was tho almanac of year before Inst. We find in Michigan, several young men and women, who might bo employed to grcut ad vantage to themselvct and others, as Lecturers. Thcro aro among tho young Frogressivo Friends," nnd others, all tho elements for Abby Kcllcys and Lucy Stones, if they can only bo brought forward. Tho attention of tho Central Committee will bo turned in that direction; and Idubtnot will bo successful in this part of it ffiotal (Jutre. -The Convention raiaed lo money and pladgoa something over a hundred dollars, besides the eighteen new subscribers to the Bugle yon will herewith reecivo.

Mrs. Grilling hat been constantly withdrawn most of tho timo from the field, and tho wholo work has rested on me. She gave us most invaluablo aid at tho Convention, and so did James Walker on the lost day. Tho storm on tho luko prevented his earlier arrival. Under tho circumstances, wo think that wo have dono all that could bo expected.

Brotbkr Maimvs: My last left me at Youngs town, aince which time I held mcctinga at Aut tintown, Boardman, and Lowcllvillo. When I arrived at tho placo last named, I learned that two meeting wore appointed for the evening one Anti-slavery and the other Freo Soil. After counteling with friends of both parties, It was agrcod to havo but ono meetinrr. which wa held In the Free I'rcs. Meeting house. The gentleman whom tho Free Soilors expected to address them failed lo come, and I was invited to spesk which I did at well aa I could under circumstancct at I wat quite tick at the timo. The meeting passed pleasantly, a littlo Interrup tion by a drunken man, and tooie would-be men and boys excepted. But all so far as I could judgo were plcoscd, and edified. At tht closo of the lecture, a friend enquired of tho "turn-key" if tho house could bo occupied by us on tho next day, (Sunday) to which ho replied that he "thought thcro would bo no objection" he went and consulted the trustee, and returned sn) Ing thut tho houso could not he had. So we appointed tho meeting for tho "Lord's Day" in the school houso just across the alley from the other and thcro wo met ami held our mect'ng tho meeting houso standing unoccupied ull the while. Iho Free Presbyterians left the fellowship of tho old school, on account of her connexion with slavery, so they sny. I was there ibr tho very purposo of laboring w ith those reformers, to bring into diaroputo the flare-holding reli gion which they themselves refused to fellow ship. Why did they refuse the uso of their houso? Do they feel that there i rottenness at homo or aro they not sincere in their pre tensions to anti-slavery ; or do they, like others, mulco the sect the great object of their efforts Do they not know thnt tho Church is but a mrom to bo used for the accomplishment of tho end, viz: tho redemption of men. How per fectly ridiculous it is, for people professing to bo 'simon puro' anti-sluvery ; and yet, from a narrowness of chnrity, or else of interest, they lock up their places of worship, lest at any time, tho speaker might not believe every thing which they thin'x to be orthuilor. ScvturianiMn is more in tho wny of tho deliverance of the slave, than all tho constitutions and laws of the country. I hope that this cursing spirit may oon disappear from among anti-sluvery people. I priy, thut tho anti-slavery friends will avoid that kind of party spirit which would lead them to care moro for tho Society thnn for tho end for which it has its existence, i. e. the freedom of tho slave. Tho timo has fully coino when all anti-slavery people, whutevcr may bo their modo of action, should strike slurenj, ami not one another. Tho voting abolitionists aro not equally as bad, if not considerably worse, than the hunker Whigs and patent Democrats they are doing much to agitata both "in Congress and out of it," may their "pathway ahine more and more unto the perfect day." ' Tho discussion of tho Bihlo question In con nection with Anti-Sluvery, I think unnecessary and injurious and whilo I mny not be uble to rcconcilo those passages usually quoted by Mr. Barker, and others, w ith freedom, I am sure that the great weight of testimony in the Bible, can never bo reconciled with slavery. But I acck no controversy on tho subject. I had meeting last week at MiUbro'ok on Sunday and Wednesday had good meetings. I came to this pluco last Saturduy and lectured in tho Methodist mectinghouso in tho evening had a good timo hnd meeting yesterduy forenoon and P.

There is much ex citement here, s:mc of tho McthodUts suid thut their holy religion was destroyed on last oven ing.
