SECOND DECADE ANNIVERSARY. OF THE FORMATION OF THE AMERICAN A.-SLAVERY SOCIETY! it a iiiiTl" It is almost twouty yonrs since tlio Antsii AX Ax- Ti-iSLAVtar Sot itTrwas organized by a Conven tion held for thnt purposo in the city of Philadel phia. How eventful is the history of the Society and of our country during this period! Tho Soci ety, faithful in a good dgrec to the great princi ples on which, as upon the Everlasting Rock, it was so wisely founded, has gone forward steadily ind fearlessly in its work of exposing the sinful ness of slavery, and its dire effects upon tho pecu niary prosperity, the political relations, and the moral character of the Nation, nnd demanding, at I ho right of the slave and the duly of the master. Immediate nnd Unconditional emancipation. Happy would it have been for cureountry, and O, how happy for those who now pine in in bondage! f the voice thus lifted up in the nnnie of Justice ind Liberty has been heeded and obeyed. Hut ihie! tho American People, liko Pharaoh of old, hardened their hcnrls, refusing to obey tho mandate if Jehovah, and practically demanding, 'Who is lie Lord, that we should obey his voice, to let our bondmen go? We know not the Lord, neither will vtc let our bondmen go.' Tho area of Slavery has been immensely increased by iniquitous legislation and nt the expense of a bloody and atrocious war: ho number of slaves has augmented to nearly two anJ n half millions; nnd tho Slave Pow er exults in the enactment of a new statute fir tin recovery of fugitive boudmen a statute worthy ol the spirit of Caligula and Praeo, disgraceful alike to our professions of Republicanism. Civilization and Christianity. Each advancing step in the pro giess of the Society hns revealed a still 'lower deep' ofnntiomil corruption and profligacy, until both Church and Stale are fhown to bo utterly defiled by tho dark spirit of Slavery, nnd the Constitution o' contaminated ns to lenxe no alternative) to the frionl-i of free 1 :it but t rcrmdmto its obli gations or renounce their allegiance to God. Hut notwithstanding tho development of na tional prolligncv, wo nro fur from being discoui aj'eu. luileeu, wo see in tneso ucvciopmcms a suro sign of progress, and n pledge of Glial success. We hnvo compelled Slavery to exhibit itself in its true character before mankind; wc have succeeded in fixing upon its hideous features tho steady gaze orilin whole civilized world: we have furmed nnu- clcus around which is gathering, surely if not as; rapidly as wc could wUh, a moral powr.a which . will cro long prove itself too mighty to be success- ully resisted. Wo now know, ns we did not at, J f . first' the height and depth; the length and breadth j of tho evil which we are struggling to overthrow and this knowlcdgo is an important preparation for tho work that remains to bo done. Profiting by the experience of the past, and having a never-failing source of encouragement intho consciousness that our cause is just, and Unit God nnd Truth are on onr side, we must go forward, regardless of ev ery obstacle, and undismayed by every danger that may beset our path. In accordance with the vote of the Society nt it last Aumiul Meeting, wo hereby invito the mem bers and friends to assemble iu Sanauin Street Hall j Philadelphia, on Saturdny, Sunday and Monday, December 3d, 4th and 5th, to celebrate the .Twenti eth anniversary of its formation.

Thnt between the radical bIk.U- tionist of the North nnd tho slaveholders of the ( South, there is no middle ground; any more than i between tl.oworsliqqwrsot one living rniu true uo.. mid those of Idols, therefore, all such as pretend to bo opposed to Slavery, and nt tho saino time dis couiilennnco tho anti-slnverv movement, aro cither cherishing a fatal delusion, or clso are guilty of gross hypocrisy. d. liesoheil, Thnt abolitionism, however ma ligned by a time-serving pulpit or caricatured by a profligate press, is nothing more than nn earnest ui'iiiniicl lor the practical cniorccmeni oi mo uoi dmi Rule and tho Declaration of Independence, without regard to complc.vioiial differences among the people claiming for those who nro held in an iron bondage, only what the white inhabitants of this country nssunio to be theirs by a natural and Heaven drived right. 3d. Ucmlreil, That as it is a self-evident truth, 'that nil men aro created equal, and endowed by their Creator with nn in iliennblo right hi liberty,' it follows as it truth equally sell-evident, that whatev er book, parchment, code, statuto or, creed, sanc tions or upholds Slavery, under any circumstances ought to be given to the consuming flro; and thnt whntoier sect, pnrtv, or government, recognises tho right of man to hold property in man. Is thoroughly rruiit. mi'J lit on v to lie trout on in tne uust. 4th. Itisnlred. That he who opologizcsfor slave- holiling, is in licnrt a slave holder una necls only a Southern location to becomo tho purchaser and plunderer of his doomed fellow creatures, to the extent of his menus mid opportunities. &lh. lliatiteed, Thnt tlio peoplo of Michigan, without distinction ot sect or party, liy loaning it a fundamental law of their State, that no resilient therein shall hold another person in slavery ou its soil, nave unanimously declared it to no morally impossible for slaves to he innocently held as such in any other Stutein tho Union; hence, whencverjany of them nttempt to defend the practice of man-enslaving at the South, or refuse to rally under the bnn ner of immediate emancipation, so that liberty may be "proclaimed throughout all the hind unto all the inhabitants thereof," they arc guilty of perfidy to the Constitution of Michigan, and stand condemned out of their own mouths as destitute of moral prin ciple. Gth. ffe,Jnt, That it is the insnnity of Bed lam to talk of a 'Vlorioiis union" subsisting be tween thoso who abhor slavery ns tho worst of crimes, llil'l mosowno viiidicino itns wormy oi uu- limited extension and perpetuity; between those on to a bo w who believe that man was made to ulorify God iu his body nnd spirit, nnd thoso who niaiitiiin that he wns made tor the unction block, ami to lio owned by another us his chaltlo; between thoso who re gard Christianity a dinuictically opposed to every kind of oppression, and thoso who insist thnt it is compatible, with "the traffic in slnves nnd the souls of men;" between those who sny thnt government should miiko slave-holding a penitentiary offence, nnd those who say thnt government is bound to ortcct slavo uroiiertv: "for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Ucliiil;" 7th. Jlesiiler,!, That tho strength of the Slave Power is not to bo found in its own nature, (for as it is tho wickedost, so, iu itself, it is tho weakest Power beneath the sun,) or iu the number of actu al slaveholders at tho South, or in Southern com binations; but it exists in Northern cowardice, ser vility.yonserviitism in Northern religions fellow ship and co-operation in Northern party alliance and subserviency in tho Northern pulpit blacken ing tho characters of tho uncompromising friends of tho slaves, and the Northern press holding tboin up to public ridicule and scorn in hatred mid contempt of the free peoplo of color and in a gener al l.ick of manhood, moral principle, and regard for liberty, 8th. Jenulred, That we meet hero upon the Anti-Slavery platform of broad und universal free dom nnd as such wo know no sect or party. But eordinly greet every friend of tho slave. Howev er widely, wo umy differ in our religious views. Whereas, in tho courso of tho discussion which sprung up iu tho General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, ( New School,) lutoly convened ut lluihilo, N. V., tho Rev. Mr. McLnne, of Missis- idppi, said : "If you nsk how ninny of our church members are sinvelioiucrs, i nnswer, an who nro iiblo to be ; aud if you (ask how many slave tbev own, I nnswer, just as many as their moan will Dcrmit. ana Whereas, on tho same occasion. Dr. Ross, of Tennessee, in derision ot a proposition to inquire lino me nuiuucr 01 slaves neni in connection wuu Presbyterian churches at the South, moved to amend it by inciuiring into "tho number of Northern church members who attend meetings of Spiritual Rappers, Bloomers, or Women' Rights Conven tions, and who are cruel or hen-pecked husbands" and at the snmo timo pronouncing "iUnclo Tom's Cabin" n bad book bail in its theology, and bad in its morality," and that " the impression made by tlie nooKisuiaisciioou nnu telling "tlio Northern philanthropist to learn, from the Biblo that God nowhero says slavery is a sin, aud that the Golden Rule may exist in the relations of slavery" and dchnntly proclaiming to the Assembly, "It is lust simply a fixed fact tho South will not submit to your inquiries ; uo, not for nn instant 1 Wo will not permit you to approach us at ail ami V hercus, tho liev. Jlr. J-.ddy mid " llo wo tired of tho discussion of slavery, and lonired for repose ; ha believed that the great Head of the Church(! !) asked for reposa on this subjoct ;" and tho Rev. Dr. Cox, on tlio presentation of a paper iroin tue usn ego i r suvierv, reiusiiiE to semi l oni- missioners until tho llcueiul Assembly absolves itself from the sin of slavery, by declining fellow ship with shivoholding churches, said" Ho was grieved at the bad uetiou of tho Presbytery, and sirongly reprobated it ; so that, if ho let the Old Adam work witliin linn, ho would not only be in favor of laying the paper on the table, but would kick it under the table, aud tho Rur.

GARRISON'S MEETINGS. On Wednesdny of last week, Mr. Garrison and writor attended a meeting in Weymouth, Mo- Co., Ohio. The day was exceedingly inclem end in consequcneo the meeting was not as largo as It would otherwise have been. It was howevor, rcspcctablo in numbers, many coming fn)m , distance. Mr. Garrison held two meetings, , B(Wnoo ,,:, Icolicnt rcmnrks woro listened to with tho deepest interest by the audience, w hich showed its hearty approval of the principles advocated, by contributing to tho cause tho spot, $20,31, besides making somo pledges be puid nt a future time. In the evening, the Editor of tho Bugle addressed very attentive audience, and was followed by somo remarks from Mr. Garrison. To thoir credit it said, tho Congregational Church fnely gave the use of their houso for the meetings, and the Pastor of tho church, Rev. J. L. Seymour, attended mid manifested an luterest in their proceedings nnd objects. At tho conclusion of the meetings, he remarked, publicly, addressing himself to Mr. Gar rison, "I hnvo no quarrel with you." And why should any professed minister nnd representative of Jesus, liavo any quarrel with tho principles hich anti-slavery men proclaim. They nro iden tically thoso which Jesus taught, and wo only ask thnt men shall aetualiso them in their religion, their government and their lives. But alas, this is their condemnation. Men will stand nnd even np provo the preaching of plain, blunt truth, until they find tho preacher so in earnest as to demand that his principle bo reduced to practice. 1 hen the preacher becomes a fanatic nnd a madman. On Sunday Mr. Garrison addressed threo audi dices in tho Town Hull in this place. Hero as elsewhere, his principles his presenco nnd his manner all tended to remove prejudice nnd arouse an interest in tho causo of tho outcast. Mr. Pills- bury spoko after the close of Mr. Garrison' last address. He exhibited tho guilt of the church in her support of slavery, with a terriblo severity such as ho alono knows how to use. Mr. P. and Mr. and Mrs. Grilling hare just returned from their western tour, somo account of w hich will be found in another column. Wester Asti-Si.avexv Fai.

GARRISON'S MEETINGS. CUBA--NEBRASKA. Tho slave power is yet a busy as ever. Untiring ns it is unscrupulous. Why do not tho people arouse hud resist its diabolicnl energy. Tho rumor is abroad that England propose tu do something in favor of emancipation in Cuba nt some future day. Tho Government organ nt Washington blus ters at this, and threatens Europe with wnr in case of any such impertinent interference. The Na tional Intelligencer is not quite, so blood thirsty .or so confident. It fears emancipation will como some dny. It snys : " It is calculated to startle, but it should hardly surpriso us. When wo consider at what immense pecuniary cost r.ngland abolished slavery in her West India possessions ; thnt anti-slavery is a great and ever oetivo principle in her Govcrninc-ntul pol icy, whenever and wherever there is an opportunity for its exercise ; when wo add to this that slavery has been long extinguished in the Inrco French Island of llavti, it would have seemed ait inevitable event in tho law of progress, that sooner or later slavery would share the saino late in the great eon tiguous Island of Cuba, containing a population of over eight hundred thousand colored, bond and tree We may regard the knell of slavery in tho An tilles to have been sounded the day that tho Parlia ment of r.ngland, rashly, unwisely, mid unfortu nately enacted its extinction iu her West India colonies. Circumstances might retard, lut nolliinri could prevent it e final consummation threiuyh tome instrumentality or other. If, as is stated, the initial steps nro taken against slavery in Cuba, bucked by the the power aud in fluence of England, the event ha approached sooner than we expected, and has been accelerated by the bucennncoring expeditions fitted out on our shores for tho conquost of the island, and the plots still avowedly meditated, and openly encouraged by high public functionaries for wresting tho island from tho dominion of Spain." Slaveholders not only intend to protect slnvory in Cuba and eventually annex it, bat they aro plotting to introduce it also into Nebraska. Says the Forest City Democrat : '' The schema dovelopes. It is now certain that tho slavery propagandists mean to hold this terri tory. They have outwitted tho peoplo thore, and have the support of tha Government. " The " territory is not open to settlement," de clare tho agents of this class. And trherejbret It is not yet ripo for slavery.

Tho settler propos churchcs, I ed measures to secure nu organisation of the terri- t.u-y. These doughty mon resisted. They assailed Bunton; the settlors defended him. Whitfield's second speech is thus reported : "'General Whitfield auraiu spoke with much force i he was for compromise accenting to tho late act ; thought tlio Missouri Compromise ought to rtpeaua ; thought men from all part ot the Union ought to have the privilege of bringiig thoir oron- erty with them, from a negro to a spinning jenny he aid they might cry no aiiUition when slavery wa already excluded by the Missouri Compromise for his part he should aijitate and aiUale, till south ern men were permitted te take their slaves to the territory; he did not care, ersoiially, whether was filially made a slavo Stato or not, ho was for equal rigiii.

The recent State Con tention at Adrian, wa an occasion of no ordinary importance. The weather wa unfavorable, an attendance ofcitixen of Adrian, during the first two csaion wa comparatively small.

There wa great variety of opinion but the utmost freedom of ex pression, although fraternity of feeling, and a gen eral and enrnest desire for cooperation, wa mani fested by all. The principle and measure of the American Anti-Slavery society were clearly pres ented and most critically exnmined question were freely propounded and objection perti naciously and earnestly urged, thongh generally; good fnith and spirit. The result we the re- moval of prejudice and tho conviction on the part friends cf the slave, that though they diner in regard to some measures, yot they can and ihould to sprond tho light, convert the nation and save the slnve. Hence, thongh at nrtuouDnui tho propriety of forming a State Society, after discussion, they enmo forward heartily and unani mously and formed their organitation. we nave no doubt it will prove a most efficient and useful one. We invito all friend of the slave iu the State como forward and sustain tlie Committee by their sympathy and their contribution. They may rest assured, thnt whatever mean may be put Into tlie' hands of the Committee, will be employed econom ically mid wisely for the advancement of the cause. Friend of freedom in Micbignu, give thi Com mittee your vigorous support. They are worthy. They nro earnest, persevering and true. ' Give it and your State can be rapidly revolutionized. . The earnestness of tho friends in the Convention was manifested most encouragingly by the prompt ness with which they responded to the application for funds to carry forward tho work. They needea no urgency or entreaty. They saw the channel through which their contribution could "be mad nvailnblo for freedom and justice, and they came forward iriVi a irifV nnd cast them in for this purpoo. This promptness in contribution greatly encouraged us. In this day of Mammon, it Is the best test we know of anti-slavery heartiness and fidelity.' Mr. Garrison did a largo prop rtionof thcpuulio speaking, nnd his words wero with power. They mado friends to the cause. We should be glad if wo could give our render a full report of several of tho very interesting and ablo speeches of the occasion. But this we cannot do. One of the retnries has furnished us a Irlcf sketch of one uf Mr. Garrison's addresses, and we havooursolf note of eoine others; but ns yet wo havo found no time to prepare them for publication. Every way tho meeting was most satisfactory and pleasant. Natiiax HfST, a youth some six teen or seventeen yenr of age, who had charge of tho Hall, largely contributed to tho pleasure and comfort of the convention, by hisgood taste mid on remitting attention to his duties. If he shall con tinue to discharge tho subsequent duties of life, with the liko euro and fidelity his lifo w ill.be one of no ordinary usefulness. The Hull wa most taste fully festoonced with evergreens, and on the end walls wero inscribed names of well known anti slavery Inliorera, directly over the stand were two hands fraternally clasped, tho one of arfstveratio and the other of tho proscrilcd c niplcxion.' ' On one of tho side walls was inscribod in largo letters, "Iain an abolitionist," and on the oposite wall, the motto, "No t'nioii with Slaveholder" On tho last evening a few persons at tho back part of the hall showed sonic disposition to rowdy ism. Mr. Ludlow tho city Marshall was present. as he Informed them to pecscrvo order and assured them he should do it. All was quiet afterwards, and this part of tho audience listened with quiet, ness to tho subsequent addresses.- A vote wa passed by the audience thanking Mr. Ludlow for the prompt nnd manly discharge of hi duty on the occasion. The Press of the city, proved itself an exception to the liberality und commendable course of the citizens gouornlly.
