knew, that our boing unarmed exposed us to the
reproach of hasarding our live recklessly,
Ww niako all these admissions nml, yet, we
Justify our rescue of Jerry. On what ground?
Solely on th ground of doing unto others, m we
have others do unto us. Jerry wished to
resencd. Were wo kidnapped, w sholild wish to
be rescued. Were our kidnapper kidnapped, they
Would wish to lie rescued. Wert) Marshal Allen
kidnapped, his heart would go out forever toward
the Jerry the white Jerry, or the black Jerry
should deliver him. Marshal Fitch fired pis-jlng
tols at the rescuers of Jerry. But had Iro liven In
Jerry's place, the kisses of his love would have
imprinted, and the teara of his grutituhe would
have wet, the cheeks of those rescuers. Who Is
there, in fine, that, were lie kidnapped, would not
wish to be rescued ? No one. Thero is no one
then, who is competent to deny, that Jerry's w ish
should have been gratified.
. But it is saiil, that thero was a taw against res
cuing Jerry. We answer, that there was no law
is no law can be no law against the duty of do
ing unto others, as we would have others do unto
i. We say this, not only beuauso the Cireat
'Teacher and Lawgiver has couched this duty in a
commandment s nor because the heart of universal
human nature owns, that this "commandment is
holy and just and good. Wo say it, moreover,
because, in the nature of things, this duty must be
the reason and the soul of every law for tho regiij
of tho mutual conduct of men. Is the
"Statute Book in the face of this dutyt 80 far,
tho Htatuto Hook is no law. Is the Constitu-'
in the fact) of this duty? So far, then, the
is no law,
was no law against rescuing Jerry, be-
cause there was no law for enslaving him. What
vcr the forms of law, under which ho was held,
they waro entirely wanting In the spirit anil sub-
stance of law. The law to do unto others, as wc
would havo others do unto us, is a law to respect
11 human rights. But all human rights arc cloven
down by slavery. Kvory law must bo a law for the
protection of rights. A law for the destruction of
riirhts is a solecism nml an bIliimIiIv
Wo .aid, that there was no law for cnslavlmi
Jerry. That is not t taw for the human race, which
no human being can honestly enforce. To say, that
it is, is to Impeach the wisdom and purity of tho
Author of all law. But thero lives not a human
being, who would reverence, or know, slavery as
law were it to bo turned against himself, nml were
it lo demand a victim in himself. Thero lives not
human being, who, were ho in slavery, would
not bo delivered oven though at the expense of
trampling on all tho Stutute Books and Constitu
tions in tho world. Hence, thero lives not a human
being, who can honestly rccogniio a lnw for en
slaving any one : and, hence, there can be no law
for enslaving any one.
We go farther, and declare, that no person has
the right to use as law, or know as law, even thnt,
which is law provided, that, when it is applied to
himself, he rejects it as law. For instance, he who
resists the collection of a debt, which he owes, has
no right to collect a debt, or to claim, that there is
law for collecting it. Tho resistance, in the one
oase, makes him dishonest in asserting the claim in
the other t and, whether tho thing, which a' mnn
does, is, in itself, right or wrong, ho nevertheless,
must not do it, if it can bo dono by him, only dis
honestly. " Happy is ho, who eondemneth not
himself in that thing, which healloweth." So too,
the man who Ictshis horse jump into hi neighbor's
Held, is not to inquire into the law of tho case,
when, in turn, his neighbors horse jumps into his
field. His own lawlessness estops him from claim
ing, that there is any law in the case. Such reas
oning, applied to slavery, justifies us in saying, that
tho question, w bother slavery is good or bad, right
r wrong, Is entirely immaterial to our argument.
Though It were possible, that its elements could be
' all fiom Heaven, instead of being, as they arc, all
from Hell, nevertheless, no sane man could be al
lowed to claim, that slavery is the subject of law
of sanctioning and sanctifying law for tho simple
reason, that no sane man would consent to be
lave.
We havo said, that the character of shivery is,
no wiso, tnntoriul to our argument against tho pos
sible legalisation of slavery. But we cannot for
bear the incidontul remark, that it is hecauso every
man knows the character of slavery, that every
' man shrink from becoming a slave. Kvory man
knows slavery to bo a hell of horrors. Every man
would infinitely rather havo all hi children in the
grave than onu of them in that Hell.
fa tho light of what his boon said, wo see what
unparalleled hypocrites are tho American people.
The great mass of them are for slavery : and yet,
not one of them would consont to bo a slave. What
hypocrites are thoir Divines, who preach or apolo-
" gizo for slavory ! What hypocrite are their
Churches, that they do not cast theso goaMess Divines
out of the pulpit I What hypocrites are thoir leg
islatur, who legislate for slavery 1 What by po
or iter are the tribunal that recognise the luw
slavery I A few weeks ago, Judge McLean did,
tho name of law, send bis innocent brother into
slavery. What if tho law-making' power in Ohio
should doom the Judge to slavery f would he not
. sooner shod an ocean of blood than acknowledge
tho legality of hi doom? He would: and that
ho would stamp him with the most guilty and
frightful dishonosty. What a painful scene does

lawyer doing, who are thero. But not 10, we trust,
are the Juror.
Judge Hull affect respect for pro-slavery enact
ment ; and ho i willling to send men into slavery.
But, though ten thousand Legislatures had pro
nounced bis son a slave, ho would sooner see
whole Court murdored than ice it succeed in send
ing that son into slavery.
We spoke of the Juror. Happily, they need
not concern themselves with tho law of tho case.
They can acquit all the defendants, on tho fact

Jerry was a slave. Slavery fit must be reniombered,

whipping, or in the other hardship and suffering

very. Iti oisenoo consist (olely in the assumed
fsinversion of it victim into chattels. But
legal fiction, that turn a man into a thing, is
war with every possibility of foot. This fiction

We havo mid enough to justify our rescue of
Jerry. We rescued him, because, aswe linvo mid,
there was no law, and Could be no law, for cnslavc
would being him because there was no law and could be
no law, for reducing a man from the glorious
heights, where his Maker placed him, to the level
i of brutes and things. We rescued him, as we
would have rescued any other Innocent brother
from the hands of any other pirntcs, without prtVur
who one moment to make the absurd Inquiry,
j whether there Was a law for the piracy. Wc should
hftvc beon monsters, instead of men-, had we not
rescued him. To havrj stopped our ears, w hen this
'poor brother cried; and to havo forborne to deliver
' hiin, whon we saw him drawn unto death; would
, have been to incur the frown of Heaven and the
contempt of earth. In a word, we rescued him,
because we could net help it. All in vain, would
it have been for us to try to dam up nur nut lire, at
that high flood time of its feelings. Those feelings
Would have their way. Thnt nature would be true
to itself.
A distinction has been set up between rescuing
a
a fugitive slave from the hands of private cilir.ens,
and rescuing him from the hands of official persons
: Some thero arc, who justify tho the former, but
condemn tho latter. Tho distinction, is absurd
and should never bo made: or, If made, It should
be made against tho official persons, Tho "mi
lation chief framed by law," and executed by tho officers
of law, Is the worst of all mischief, because appa
then, rently clothed with the authority of law. No niis
ion chief should be sa promptly rosistcd, as such mis
Constitution j chief: and no persons should be so promptly pun
Thero ished, as they who attempt to legaliie it, and they
who officially undertako to enforce it. The abuse
'of law-making and of other official powers is the
most fearful wrong, that can befal tho people; and
the most effectual way for the people to invite the
' perpetration of such wrong, is to give in to the false
1 and impudent doctrine, that office shelters the a-
base of office; and that crime, when committed by
Government, is to be unresisted and unpunished,

this treachery to their trust, and this conspiracy

they would bo punished. Or, rather, were the pub

with the remark, that crime on tho part of Govern

There was a mob in Syracuse, October 1st, 1851,
said the newspapers. It is true, that there was.
But it was not what tho new spnpers represented.
It was not tho rescuers of Jerry, who composed the
mob; but it was those, w ho fell upon that poor and
helpless, and inocent man. The President and the
Member of Congress, referred to. wcro virtually
aud prominently among those, w ho fell upon him
were virtually and prominently of the mob. No
other lender of that mob, unless it were Daniel
Webster, or snmo very distinguished clerical advo-
cato of the Fugitive Slave Act, was so conspicuous
and influential, as tbo President of tho United
States. Yes, it w as the kidnappers of Jorry, who
constituted the mob. They were the tramiilora on
law. The law-abiding men were his rescuers.
Jerry was rescued nut by a mob but from a mob.
Fcllow-cititens! we aro nut ignorant, thnt we
are reproached and hated. We are called infi
dels: and weeonfess, that if our deep belief, that
tho current religion of this country is infidel,
makes us infidels, thon are wo infidels. We con
fess, that we have not the most distant idea, that
that is the religion of Jesus Christ, which doc not
heartily espouse the cause of the slave. Wo aro
called tho enemies of luw: and wo confess, that,
if to be the enemies of enactments, which con
tain not truth, nor justice, nor any other element
of luw, makes us the enemies of law, then aro wo
the enemies of law. Wc are called anarchists and
despiscrs, of Government: and we confess, that, if
obedience to human Government requires us to dis
obey the Divine Government; and if "Honor the
King" is acummnndinent to dishonor tho King of
Kings, then aro we anarchists and despiscrs of
Government.
We repeat, fellow citizens, that we arc conscious
of the odium that rests upon us. We feel, that we
are wronged: but wo are not impatient for tho right
ing of our wrongs. . Wo bide our time. Tho men
that shall como after us, will do us justice The
present generation of America cannot "judge right
eous judgment," in tho case of tho uncompromising
friends of freedom, religion and law. They aro so
debauched and blinded by slavery, and by the per.
verse and low ideas of freedom, religion and law
which it engenders, that they "call evil good and
good evil; put darkness for light and light for dark
ness; put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
They have been living out tho Ho of slavery so long
and havo been, thereby, deadening their conscien-
cos so long, a to be, now, w ell High incapable of
perceiving tho wido and everlasting distinction
between truth and falsehood.
Wo are aware, too, fellow citizens, of the peril,
in which wo are envolved by our position and pnr
pose. We havo rescued ono fugitive slave. Wo
must rescue every other, that we can. We have
exhorted our fellow men to trample on the Fugi
gitive Slavo Act. We must continuo to exhort
them to do so. Wo cannot roccde. Vt o owe it to
ourselves, our children, our country , our Clod, to
go forward. We cannot, for the sake of securing
our property or liberty, or any of the intorost of
time, forget, that there is an etornity. Nor may
we count even our live dear to ourselves in the
high and holy cause to which we havo oosocrated
our all. We do not claim to havo risen above the
fear of death. But wa remouibcr, and srtive to obey
the ooramandmont: "Fear not them, which kill the
body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather
fear Him, who U ablo to destroy both soul and bo.
dy in Hell."
We havo, now, said all we wish to say, at this
second celebration of the roscu of Jerry. What
we shall say on the like occasion hereafter, or how
often tho occasion will be re peat. I, we oann ot now
tell. This much, however, we can now toll that,
at every future celebration of tliia precious event'
we shall continue to speak out our convictions hon
estly and fearlessly; and that we shall continue to
repeat the celebration from year to year, until the
impudent and lying claim, that slavery can be lo.
galizad, shall be abandoned in every part of our
guilty land.

most injured having both hi legs broken, Mr-
Darlington of Pittsburg who wa smoking in tho
baggage car had one leg broken by baggage fulling
upon it. Both train were behind with heavy loads.
The first train from Pittsburgh in the morning
having waited for the passenger from the East, the
cause of tho accident was the derangement of
the telegraph at Alliance, by a sudden thundor
storm. A message was sent from Alassiloii, and
received, and one immediately following it failed,
on account of tho register being rendered useless
by a flush of lightning.
The trains were running slow ly andthecngiucors
were whistling, but tho sudden storm and wet truck,
prevented them from being able to stop quick
enough. The train were not much injured, excep

An Old Pear Tsf t. There is a poor tree on the
corner of Thirteenth-tit. and third-av. New York
which was planted there two hundred and six years
Rut by Governor Stuyvesant, on hi farm, then
fur out of town. It stand now inside of an iron
railing on the side walk, and still wcur tho green
leave of summer, still bears its rich fruit. It
venerated by the Knickorliockors, for the old timo
reminiscence it culls up in their minds, of days
when Rip Van Winkle took his nap iu Sleepy Hol

itionists to assemble on such occasious. Our past
experience, and tho present aspects of our causo,
coiiarm our coutiiieiico in tho measure which we
have adopted, and incite us to tho prosecution of
our lalKir with renewed vigor. Tho spirit of re
form and progress which so stikingly marks this
1 perrai)ig almoMt cvrT iiiHtitution uf thitt and
other lands, makes despondency, in such an n
terpriso as ours, impossiblo; whilo a clear view, aud
careful consideration! of the dccply-rooted, widely-
extended, national evil, w hich wo aim to aWlish,
makes relaxation of our labors equally impossible.
The simple statement, tcrriblo in its realization,
that there are, to-day, in our own land, million of
human beings held in slavery, should bo sufficient
to rouse, to their utmost capacities, all the energies
of tho philanthropist and Christian; dud tho very
obvious truth that tho slave power must be van
quished, or rule supremely, in this nation, should
