Vhy, Sir, Horace Mann speaks tetli'igly of thevile
purpose to which the Constitution has been subver
ted to meet ; showing irresistnbly clear to us, a'
least, that tho unparalleled crime of American Sla
very had been carried on 111 direct violntion to the
organic Law of tho land. Sir, in direct violation
bf what all abolithutists; Mr. Hoover nnd the rest,
unito in declaring to tho letter, word, and therefore
spirit of tho Constitution, if words hnvo a
meaning. It is needless to ask a repeated adinis-
sion of this prcmisis. In this, the wor'l'ng of the'
Instrument, all mf airrcc. In this, nil W-agreed.
In tho sentence in connexion with the above, you
say, In substance, what has been done under the
Constitution, may bo done and will likely be, ngaiii
"unless it bo arrested by the controlling power of
public sentiment." Very true. Thls is what we
Hll aro so busily engaged to avoid. Hut public
sentiment has been generated in tho hulls of Con
trress, and may ho found terrible to despots In the
A little further down yoii siiy, "TJiO Constitution
Is somewhat u'-iillur to the Ilihlo, that is, mmntjxnl
rkal pull ir'lr it! im'nt make it menu." Very true,
t?o agree with you again exactly. As wo have just
proveu that its words and nienning hud to bo de
stroyed, to niiiko it pronlnrery, w e nre nowA'ngreod
that It, (and for my part, tho Ilihlo with it,) is like
noso of wax, that it may bo changed tn suit the
parties 1 Very well. Hut vrhnt in to becoino t.l
your preinuninition ?
hd what of (iarrisonianismf Do fiurrisoninns
claim tn labor to elevate, to mould public sentiment
to direct it in tho right channel, certainly to
shape It to their own liking (?) Then w hy twist this
noso of wax to suit tho slaveholder? Why, do tell
ino, why can you thus bo led to throw around the
tyrant tho cloak of tho law f Why acknowledge
his legal claim to his victim ? and yet complain ol
his using it.
Mr. Hoover, I think our conclusion is nn una
voidable ono from your premonition laid down.
And now let nic any in conclusion nnd in candor,
that while I can readily imagine an inducement
for tyrants to gain this position, to thus controvert
ovou the organic law of tho land to scrv their de
sign, nnd aid in tyraiiical purposes, I my while 1
(an even In mousiiro piiliitto for tha slaveholder
in s degree, owing to his society, education and
trnining, my powerp utterly fall rn, when I would
account fur thoso w ho aro kiinKn, teiihut friends of
the slave, wasting the finest talent, tho host of pre
cious time and money, biggotedly maintaining what
is worse than labor lost in tho face of 'all truth,
discretion against tho slavo, for tho tyrant, and in
face of thair own every day avowals. I did not
think to nicntion, and hero let us for a moment
try the form of this most powerful of all agencies,
"puMic tenliment" (!) upon tho Supremo Court, wore
our that sontinient. As this ia ono of tho points
Id which we cordially agree, (and wo havo in most
or quito all points, I believe,) then shall wo not
agree upon tho inevitable and noble results that
that would follow, tho Constiution rostorod, its
amplo provisions for liherty soeurcd without spot
br blemish, the tlart set free I
. You point to Art. 1st sec. 2d., Art. 1st soo. Oth,
Art. 4th sec. 2d of tho Constitution, which you say
"is as pro-slavery as the slaveholder could ask."
But, you havo said, "it meant junt ttliat public tn
iiment make il mean I Then it is a nullity.
But I have cnrofully referod to thoso articles, and
Can't possibly find tho word slave, slavery, negroen,
slaveholder or any 61 tier thing thnt can mean slnvory,
If I give words their legitimate moaning, in this
. ease as we do in all othors. I cannot find a single
word that conflicts with the liberty of tho slavo.
Nor could I possibly gain the idea by reading that
(hat document, that slavery over had had an exis
tence under its auspices. Future generations can
not learn it w lieu it be abolished. And now, Mr.
ilootoT, oould you f Your onty answer is no, No
Thon what are abolitionists at war with. Do you
answer, the "intention of it fiamertl" Sir, this
fabrication wui treated in my reply to your first
and bus boon used up by Uorrit Smith aud Spoonor,
and extinguished by Fredorio Douglass aud Horace
Mann, A word in reply to your lost question and

Pittsburgh, this, week;
The identity of the slave is proved preparatory
to th.s exhibition, by a letter from John Mireeve,
an aged and respectable genilcmnn of this vicinity,
and divers affidavits "f o'Iits. Wo copy them as
a record of interest. It will ho seen by them that
Honcral Washington was a freiuent trader in sluves,
buying, sidling and swapping for hind ns his busi
ness interests dictated. It will bo seen too, that
have to do with thoso w ho havo succeeded him as
slave holders and slavo traders, and who hnvo cs-j
poctnl interest in perpetuating these mines, ami
who for this purpose would s.-izo upon the sanctity
which this people havo thrown around his name,
nnd cast it ns. a mantle of honor over tho foul Hoi
of their veneration. For this purpose, more than
for any other, they would build monuments to his
memory, and sing peuns to his praise. It is not
that they love liberty Jiut that they-may praotio
slavery. This history is therefore instructive.
Wo copy from the l'ittsbnrgh Dispatch:
From tho Pennsylvania Democrat, April 22 18.12.
Ne.r Salem, Ohio, April fith, 1M2.
llrnterM Fi i'iul : I urn informed by my grand
son, V. II. Shreve, who tiuderstiHid that 1 was the
oldest man living that resided in tho neighborhood
of Washington's llottom, in Fiiyctto county, l'u.,
that they thought I could remember when Wash
ington built tho tirst hoin.0 and mill on the aforsuid
hottom land, and other information respecting his
lieing tliere, &e. lu order to lend on to I'mf wliu li
1 know respecting it, I shall speak of myself, lu
the time of tho Kev.diitioii in 177.1 and '70, my
father took mo when I was in my minority, into
his regiment, whftr I remained eight months n
volunteer, and about live years a commissioned
olbcer. The year after the liritish moved off their
iiruiv, in the year 171, in company with n relation,
wishing to see the new coiintrv, 1 passed over the
Allleghenv Mountains, crossed the Yonghiogheny
river at Itohbstown, nnd the Mononguhila at Par
kinson's Ferrv, now Williamsport. Wo staved
ono night with a farmer named Itecket, near the
ferry, whero wo were informed that (ienernl Wash
ington had passed a few days before, to see his
laud on the Ohio river bottom, below the month of
tirnve creek. He had been to si c his laud and mill
in Fayette county, and sold his slaves and other
property that lio hud there. Wo went on to
Wheeling, which wits tha frontier settlement. 1
crossed over tho Ohio river, that I could say 1 hud
been in the Indian country, now tho State of Ohio.
I returned in September of that year to Now Jer
sey, where I remained until tha year 178 then
with my wife nnd one child, moved to Fayette
county, Ph., and purchased a small farm of one
Imiitlrcd neres of Levi Stephens. I soon became
acquainted with tho old settlers. I will mime
somo of them. Levi Stephens, Win. Hoc, James
Purdy, Peter Vandolph, Col. Leonard Cook,
Viiniueter, Moses Thompson, Samuel Hums, llen
jiiiuin Harris, llleakley, Xutliuu Brown, Dea
ler Brown, Peter Puttersou, Itccd, Kicliard
Noble, and others.
The Sttito of Virginia claimed all tho land West
of tho Allegheny mountains to ths Mississippi riv
er, and North to Lake Kric and tho St. Luivreuco
river. Tho inhabitants who settled on tho waters
of the Ohio, Mononguhelu, Allegheny nnd Yongh
iogheny rivers beforo the closo of the lievolutioii-
ary war, settled under tho Virginia claim but
when Mason aud Dixon run tho boundary line,, at
tho closo of tho war, between Pennsylvania and
tho States of Delaware, Maryland nnd v irgiuin,
tho most of those settlements lay within Pennsylvania.
iVbout tho year ITo.l, fiovemor Dinwidis; of A ir-
ginia being informed that the French from Canada,
anil tlio Indians wero making settlements on land
supposed to belong to Virginia, ho then appointed
Oco. Washington (thon about twenty years of age)
Colonel, and sent him with about 4()0 men, to as
certain the truth of tho report. On reaching the
first Indian settlement on tho waters of tho Mo
nonguhola (who wore friendly, and not in the inte
rest of tho French) ho was informed that the
French and Indians were in Croat force at the
junction of the Monongahola and Allegheny rivers.
wnure nicy nun a tort, called tort liuquestie, built
whore Pittsburgh now stands, and wore preparing
to attack him. Washington took a stand on Laurel
mountain (about seven miles east of I'niontown)
where lie erectod a Stockade Fort, culling it Fort
v : . .. 'ci. l- i. i i .i : " i
Necessity. The French nnd Indiana eiime in groat
force, and demanded that Washington should cap
itulate, surrender the Fort, and retire over tho
mountain. I believe this was tho scene of the first
military qxploit of Washington, where the citizens
of L'nionUiwn and vicinity are talking of erecting
a monument to his memory.
X was informed by the old settlers alluded to,
that (ion. Cioorge "Washington uftor Braddock
defeitt, and after Fort Diuiiiouso was taken, and
the Frenoh nnd Indians driven out of that country,
and tho settlement commenced Washington being
a Surveyor, went into that country and niado his
home awhilo with Col. Crawford, who wus an In
dian trader, who located hhnself on tho bottom
land near Now Havon, opposite Connellsvillo,
the Yonghiogheny rivor. Crawford purchusod
many improvement rights, under the Virginia claim
of 4U0 acros each, lio gave Washington tho four
traets"6f luYitl containing about 17 hundred acres,
strict measure ; nnd Washington gave him a' female
slave in return for the land. When he oommonoed
tho improvement of the land I tin not know.
