SPEECHES OF rarher Pillsbury nrnl Frulcriek Douglns.i, At the Jluniversary nf the If. Ji. S. Society, held at Salt m, .lugust, leW. RF.rORTED BV 1. W. TOW.NLB. 1Tpon tlie resolutions with respect to tlie character of Shivery, nrnl the relation of tho Church thereto, Parker Pill.-lnny remarked: It aecina to mo well to begin with l!io rtvowul, thnt there is nu aneli thing ns sin, if Slavery is not n sin. There is tin almost lota misapprehension on the part of the people gene rally, of the character of shivery, I do not helievu it is possible, for a politician to comprehend thu heighth mid length and breadth of tho crime of slavehohling. Wc lo not know whnt is tlie value of man. If we did, we could then tell somewhat of the amount of guilt thnt must stuin the ehnracter of him who would enslave n limit. We es timate n horse nt, any n hundred dollar", n thecp tit two. If a miin can estimate these, and then stent n horse or sheep, we run esti mate his guilt, ntii treat him accordingly. Whoever steals n home worth a hundred dollars, goes to prison a yenr, perhaps longer. Now if thnt is justice, who can tell what ahnll lie doun to him who steal n mini? Hut by such estimates bs these, we can only approximate the reality, for who euu tell what number of dolhirs, or thousands of dollars, man should be ruled at. I know of but one way to nrriva nt anything like n just conclusion in this matter, mid thnl is, to place ourselves in the position of slaves. How much gold would it take to hire nny of you to become a colored man or woman, assum ing at the same time, nil other difficulties nuil inconvenient' ies belonging to such a position. ' We hear a great ileal of the gold mines of California; hut if nil the mountain ranges were one solid muss of gold, it would be a sninll inducement it uiiy ouu to take sush a position. This is hut a feeble illus tration, but we cannot cnlculutclhu value of manhood in uny belter way. There is not eohl enough in tho woi hi to hii u n man of you to send a son or daughter into slavery. Liberty is valuable, because it makes mini valuablu, Mali is valuahlo only ns he is lieu. If you cannot compute tho value of man, you cannot compute tho value of freedom. I wish we could take such a view of man i as we ought. Nothing is so cheap as man, nothing is valued so little. Anil I am a Ira id we have valued uiun so little, for. so long n time, that he has become actually worth hut little. And judging ourselves by our great men, I do not know ns there is much mis take in this mutter. It poems to mo ns if DjIi'I Webster is not worth much, as at pi es cut occupied. I do not know of n muii who could be bettor spared. If Shiveiy could be wiped out by thu sacrifice of n man, I know of none who can bu spared better ihnn he ilut I look upon Aim us great in his ruins. We cross oceans and truvcrso continents, to explore the ruins of the great cities of the deserts, but yet we Aught to know, while admiring these magnificent ruins, thut the meanest slave that sweat, and toiled, mid up lieuved tlioso magnificent monuments, was of infinitely more vuluo than nil those cities, in the zenith of their glory. We look upon the works of creation, and admire our lolly mountains und splendid cataracts, und in them trace the mighty hand of him who created them, but when we stand on the brink of Niagara, and behold its mighty grandeur, we must remember that thn small est tear that falls upon the cheek of a slave child, is of much more value than all tho cataracts that God has ever formed, it is only by such illustrations, that wo can hopo to arrive at the value of man, We might compare him with his Creator, and it would be no sacrilege. Whut is niun hut the im- nreea and iinaue of the divine ? What is man but God daguerreolyped on the polished mirror of the human f'aeo ? Man is Divinely descended. We have heard tiie children of kings and conquorerB spoken of ns mean and idiotic. What if they are. We are not tha children of audi, we are more royally descended, we trace our birthright up to the Great God himself. Wa are bia offspring. his descendants in a proper line, and who ever lays his hand upon one of Ills children and enslaves him, might ns well lay hands upon God and enslave Him. The bIuvo code has written that the child shall follow tho condition of his mother, God's law pro vides that thu child shall follow the condition of his Father in heaven. Now what n crime Is Slavery, estimating a man thus. Our diffi culty is, I think that wo do not thus value num. Nothing is so cheap under heaven wa have murdered and mangled man so long, have hired him for a shilling a day to be shot nt hung him on the gallows, nnd treated him thus in so many forms, thnt we cannot conceive of tho degree of iniquity there is in enslaving him. If the slaveholder could but view man us God views him, 1 tell you, he would coll upon the rocks nnd mountains to rover him, ns is represented iu tho Apocalyptic vision. I wish it wcro poss ible for us to como into some just apprehen sion of man und then we would understand souii.whnt tho enormity of thn crime, and thn measure of the guilt of sluvcholding. I said nothing hi o cheap. Why when :nan un dertakes to improve an iiliimal, what pains he takes, ha even crosses oceans und goes clear down to Cochin China to improve the blood of ham-yard fowls, mid nt thnt very moment, his children mo dying beforo they come to tho age of livo years, through his ignorance nnd neglect; nnd yet it is not thought of. Man Is not estimated so highly us thu beasts of the field. Such oro not competent to estimate the chnrorter of Shi very, nnd 1 am afraid that while we hold such views, we shall not do much fir its overthrow. Our resolutions sny Slavery is a sin, the greatest sin. Now wc Gcnd a man w ho commits one crime to prison, another to tho gallows, thus having our degrees in crime ; ami yet we iniike tho man in whoso guilt, is garnered up the guilt of tho violution of every law which God has mndu, the most honorable man in tho nation. And the South calls upon us to fall upon our fuecs nud adore nod admire her mnitnniiimily. w hen she roiisenlB that a man bo a candidate for tho Presidency, who is not nu owner nnd buyer nnd breeder of his fellow men for Iho miuket. This is tho way we estimate crime. Now in this Convention wo have got lo hrriud Slavery ns the crime of nil crimes. The slaveholder ns thu criminal of nil crim inals, nnd the government that will regard him as fit to he in the government, ns viler than the vilest nf ull the despotisms of the old world. Tho government that will rec ognize him nt nil, is a government as much to be execrated ns nny tyranny tho world ever saw. There is not n muii in Ohio, who would give his son or daughter ns thu price of this Union. Hut wo nro paying millions of sons nnd daughters as tho pi ice. Oh, when ue come to estimate man ns we ought, there will hu no w ish merely to separate the Federal government from slavery. No, wo will sooner sit down with n coneluvo of devils, than with men coming up from slu very, steaming with blood and tears, to leg islate for (ho interests of the human race ! Thn man who will sit thus, does nut know thu value of man or of liberty. I would not talk w ith the slaveholder about Habeas Corpus, trial by jury, etc. If n man tells me he is a slaveholder, I w ill brand him ns the veriest wretch this hide of thu prison gules of hell, if not beyond. Sit down w ith him to legislate for the interests of limn ! No. And w hen wu como to estimalu mail might we shall not think of such n thing. Our nation is a monument of crucifixion of conscience nnd a total annihilation of moral character. Wo have played with theso top ics too long. Wo ought lo take hold of tho root of the mutter, and learn how fur slave holding is a crime, and learning this wo shnll learn to cast those guilty of it, forth ns vagabonds from human society, till a the first great murderer, they are constrained to say, " My punishment is greater than euu hear." lint na long ns ho is welcomed to the Church, und the Governmental platform, who can expect he will abandon his crimes. It is lime wo began at the root of tho mailer. And 1 would to Ilea von, we could begin where every other Convention bus left off, and go on till we brand every man with universal detestation, who dares thus lid his hund uguiust his brother limit. FREDERICK DOUGLASS. ON TIIE SUBJECT Or FINANCK REMARKED! , I want rny good will for the W. A. S. So' ciety understood, mid I dusiro to show especially iu this mailer of sustaining operations. I know notwithstanding I am politician and hnve become n Lihorly party tnun, thut the pioneers of this A. S. move inent, the men upon whom this cause rests most fully, those who will have to bear the burden and heat of the day, ore those who are connected with this Society. 1 know that political action ia necessary only in tho it its a rear of public aenliincnt, and whenever pub lic sentiment is strongly anti-slavery enough, then will be generated a pnrty who will crystnlizo" ns Wendell riiillips snid, " this sentiment into law." I think I understand the philosophy of Reform well enough to know that the man or society which utters the truth most pointedly, nnd applies it most closely nnd stringently to thn public mind, no matter If a small minority, thnt man or body is doing most to pronioto tho A. 8. cause. They mny not be doing nil tho work. They who scorn till nbiice on nccount of principle, nnd bolicvo only in flinging that nriiicinlo before tho public mind, nro tho men w ho are bringing nhout tho abolition of the wrong against which they are so con tending nnd their bunds ought to be held up. Now I can vote one day in tho year against shivery, and think it my duly to do so, but every other day I want tho burning coals of truth to bo thrown upon the nation s naked breast, nud hecaiiso you ore working thus it is our duty os Free Soilers lo aid you in your work. IScsjdcs, wc know that politicnl parties are a very imcei lain sort of machinery, we do not know to whnt huso uses theso organiza tions mny be put, nud we want n force out side of them, something to fall back upon in the day of trial when iheso parties fail us. Wo need a body who will bo faithful nnd w ho w ill apply tho principles of truth con tinually. 1 have engaged for life in this work, but I om going to bo a man. A free man. Free to adopt nny views, nny instru mentalities, which 1 think will advance tho good cause, und although I vote, I believe that tho great instrumentality after nil, is the " foolishness of preaching." Tho work is lo ho dono by exposing tho damning deeds of Slavery, Iho abominations of iho church, in short by ngitntion. Agitate, agitate. 1 his is the grund instrumentality, nnd without this you Free Soilers will come to nothing. I go as a Liberty party man (or sustaining ull tho moral movements of thn country. 1 hnvo no iden thnt you abolitionists of tho W. A. S. Society, will over be uhlo to bring ull tho people up to your platform; nud it is not necessary, for long before you have con verted iho whole people to your doctrine of "No union with Slaveholders," shivery will he blotted out. Go on then with your preaching, you can nil do something, both men nnd women. It is the poor man's work. Tho rich nud noble will not do il. I know whnt it is to get a living by rolling casks on the w harves, nnd sweeping chimnies, and such like, and this mnkes mo able to sympathise with the poor, und tho bound everywhere. It is not to the lieh thut wo are to look but to the poor, to the hurdhnndud w orking men of the country, these tire the men w ho nro to come lo the rescue of tho slave. 1 tell you my friends nnd fellow citizens, Ihcro is room enough for us nil, there is a niche in the temple of Itcform for every body. Aboli tionism has mndo me u great num, (heg par don for the rgntism,) hut it delivered me from the bondage of seetat iuii'sm anil priest craft, from tho bondage of my color even, und false notions of human brotherhood, nud has opened the wido world of humanity, und taught me (hat thniigh my heart is small, yel there every man under thu wide canopy of heaven can find room. Why what has it not done for me, for us nil ? It has taught us thut we have u heart nnd conscience, thut we are a part of the great whole of human ity. Let us up then und he doing, und learn to labor and lo n ail. What mutters il if you nre few in numbers, let me tell you friends, thnt even if n mini bo nlone nnd hu right, he is a mnioriiv iu tho universe. If he does not represent tho present stuto of things, he represents iho future. If not what men are, whut they ought to he. lie true then to your convictions, and I will try and he Hue to mine, und so fur as wo can, let us unite for the common cause. J (lid not como hero to subserve the interests or ends of any pnrty, but to sulisurve the iineresis ot the cutisc, und 1 shall go buck cheered nnd strengthened by what I hnvo seen and heard' Let us devote ourselves heart nnd hund to the work, and go on rejoicing in thu procla mation of truth.

Vari ous fin iiis nnd degrees of government bave ever existed iu society, eae.li inquiring equally well for nil nations nud individuals endowed w ith vni ions decree of self-control, iiioinlily, and civilization. Thn least degree of government to which men most civilived, moral and nilighleiied can ho sub. jeeted, consistently with good order nnd se curity, is that of being governed by laws mndo by representatives chosen by them selves, 'lint Ibis degree of liberty can be safely given but lo n small fraction of indi viduals, i ven in thn best and purest society.

" Thn few adult male whites who are lell to the govern i cut of mere law, if they he good or wiso, or prudent men, lake euro to throw around themselves n thousand restrictions to the liberties which tho law has lell llieui. They become members of churches and of oilier societies, husband mid fathers, nnd still further curtail their lihertien by under taking nnd perfoi uiing tho multifarious ilu I'wm which I tii.ii- various relations rcipiiro. They love not the lawless licence mid liheily which delights thu thoughtless child, thu i.llu negro, or the brutal savage.

With the w hites, wo carefully adapt tho mode mid degree of government to Iho wants of tho governed. Let us adopt the snmo v ise und jusl rule w ith the blacks.

Nay, the "deference to tho pn jiidiees of mankind," which impel tho Virginia tfo'-trinririm to cast out their free negroes rather than enrlavo them is n clear mid shameful ilc rilcc lion from principle. If ihey nre so rensitive lo 'thn prejudices nf mankind,' w iiy not send nwny their slaves ns well ns the free blacks ? If Duly constrains them to hold on to their slaves, why should il not nlsn impel them to rnslnvo the freo blacks, who are niiitbrinly proclaimed by them mo p degraded, incom petent, bni 'bin inn, improvident, than thu en slaved? Hut in fact, no one believes that tho ilerfrinnrirg would find or limey nny necessity for expelling thn free blacks but for their tenacious ownership of slaves. The former nro a perpetual rebuke to Slavery, nnd so must ho put out id' sight. Hut for this, they might bn left to emigrate or colon ize in their own good lime. Runaway Slaves.
