Slavery is said toexist in Kentucky in a mild a form. The mild ami patriarchal character of the slave laws is well exhibited in tho following trans action which occurod, it is said, a four days since, in Covington, opposite this city. A slave-holder in Virginia some timo since per mitted one uf his slaves to hire himself out in Cov ington, on condition that he should pay his master lX per year for his services. This was faithful ly performed. The slave married in Covington 11 Jreo woman, by whom he had several children. At lougth tho master came to Cincinnati, and sent for the slave to come to him. Of courso the mo ment ho set foot on Ohio soil by tho consont of his . master, he was free by Ohio l,w. Jlo' came, and j. his master contracted with him (ho then a freeman of Ohio) to purchase, his freedom for $llKJ. Tho man conseuted and paid his uiiuter on tho spot '. and subsequently made a payment of is'iO , more. Tho mnn returned to Covington to his fami ly, not to bis former owner. A few days since the master, repenting of his bargain, cuino und seized . him bim to take him back to Virginia as a slave. He was resisted, and tho caso brought before a Kentucky court. Tho decision was that tho man , was ft sluve, though free by Ohio law and really n cttixen of Ohio, and entitled to her protection; that the ontrnot mado with his master was null,, be cause ft slave is incapable of making ft contract that he could not recover what he had paid towards nis ireuuom, oecuuso an u suivo earns neioii is to his master and so by this mild patriarchal insti- ' lull.. 1 1.1. ui. ...... ... w.i.i...,i ..r i.:. r.. tution, this poor man was robbed of his freedom, his money, his family, and himself. Such is sla very such is slave Law. Less than this it cannot be such things belong to its essence Dare Christians remain in any connection w hich shields, which doos not condemn, such atrocious wickedness? . Yet Southern Christians declare that the sub ject shall not be agitated, and we fuar Northern Christians are preparing themselves to obey. Ckrutain I'm. ' Yos. Even the Christian Press prohibits infidels to agitate it. Aud refuses them its cooperation In so doing. Docs not the Press see that all discussion is to be silenced if its late arduous labors against the iufidel abolitionists shall prove effectual? The church remains in connection with this atro cious wickedness, and shields it, and the persons who are effectually agitating it must be silenced tiniest their theology corresponds with that of the Press. They who tnko this courso are the most effective, practical friends of slavery whatever their ' no lives or their pretensions. THANKSGIVING. - Covemor Crosby, of Maine, has issued ono of tho jnost sensibto thanksgiving proclamations we have ver seen. It is quite fautial and infidel. It proposes to the peoplo of Maine that they should v imutifest their gratitude, not by (briua and reli- ipaus ceremonies, and the formal mumery of pray (ersj 'hut by works of love and charity to man, A ' thanksgiving to kept, would Indeed be ft day of joy and gladness to the poor and of true honor MuxJenedio Oud, ftndftU intelligent beings.

But amidst tho enjoyments and festivities to Winch tho day gives birth, gratitudo to Him who affords us tho occasion and opportunity fur this public expression of Thanksgiving and Prnise should occupy the chief place In our hearts.

Communications. LETTER FROM PARKER PILLSBURY. Mr. GILEAD, Morrow Co., 27th Oct., 1853. m your late tour into Michigan. I am glad you have been there. And glad too, ttmt you were wUh 0ftrri,011fur 10 roop0 now mv0 iCon . . run if' """ .. -h- Dear Marks : Tho Btiglo has come to us rather late, and no word of progress reported from any of the agents. The vacuum U however very well flllod with journrygraphi of your own, jotted down j instrumentalities, but also the ntronir Sliecimetis in - n- r- the homo department of anti-slavery service.- 1 ill' j iiuru Been uuu iii'iiru nuw, uoiii iiiu iwunm agents and tho Editors-at least sufficient of them to judge of our intentions and character. My only regret is, that it was not permitted mo to sit titiitnr von hntnsr In lh (rlopimi eotiveiitinna I and metings you held there. But you may be suro we havo not been idle. The Oriffings and myself, havo held meetings of some kind, every Sunday, nearly every evening, and on many week day .4, since w e left Sulcm, on I tho last of August, lho weather generally, has behaved itself, as Edmund (Juincy would say, re- markably well, nearly all the time and the Indi-LjgImi ana roads, with their unoridged streams, have ueon . as passable as ever which, it must bo confessed, is after all, payiug them but a doubtful compli niont. Cutting our acquaintance for tho present, with the Hoosicrs, wo re-entered Ohio through Parke and .Shelby counties, nnd last Saturday nud .Sun day held meetings at Zannsficld, in Logan comi'y. Almost for the first time since we left Kulcm, our success was somewhat impeded by a heavy rain Still our meetings on Sunday, wore well attended, wero crowned w ith encouraging success. Wcjtcr found the Ilolmeses, the l'eimocks and the Mich-j : eucrs, holding fast their faith, in the midst of sur rounding darkness. They are all Friends, of the "Congregational'' or "1'rogrcssivo" school, the only true representatives of Bcnczct and Wooluian . now left in America. (Wuext movement was lo Kenton, tho capital i of Hardin county as yet but tho tprmit of u town, with the worm of tiro tlintilleriet antl sixteen ijnujijeric, already preying at its roots. Wo en- tered tho place with hesitation, but found, especial-j ly among somo of tho women, a good deal of real moral vitality. They have espoused tho Temper-1 auce causo with a seal worthy of themselves, and worthy of the importance of the enterprise itself, At tho same time, there is much enquiry awakened on the subject of the rights and responsibilities of Woman, which is nlrcadv addinir irreatlv to their strength iu behalf of other causes. Tho late Women's Convention nt Dayton, was nbly repre sented from that place and tho same will doubt less be true again, whenever a Women's Rights or Temperance Convention is held within any reason able distance. It is a most cheering sign of the times, to meet such women as a fow wo found, or who found us at Kenton. Our first meeting hnd but a four hour's notice, and yet tho plaeo was nearly full. Tho Episcopal Methodists kindly gava us the use of their commo dious vestry, for w hich it affords mo pleasure to mnko duo acknowledgments. At the close, there was a loud cull for us to remain another day. We had previously made such arrangements as to ren der this very difficult. Wo however consented, nnd on tho second evening, our houso was crowd ed to its utmost capacity. It somehow fell ou me to occupy tho timo, und I spoku a little moro thun two hours, to one of tho most ttcntivo audiences ever assembled. Mrs. (j rifling followed with un earnest appeal iu behalf of the Bugle. I also added a few words on the necessities of our move ment, with respect to tho pecuniary department. Tho final result was, not ono inhabitant of the town, man or woman, subscribed for tho papor, or contributed ono "widow's mito" to tho Treasury. Wo left early tho next morning, iu a dreary rain Ltorln having oursolves to pay a not ynry modest ' n bill at tho Hotel, for tho keeping of our horse. I trust tho pcoplo were duly thankful for our la bors, though they did not say so. They however, paid us tho compliment to urgo us strongly to visit thorn again. This we muy not havo to do another time, wholly at our own chargos. Certainly not, when the women of tho plaeo shall havo achieved their freedom. Our prolonged stay at Kenton, gave us a most dismal rida in tho mud and rain tho noxt day, for nearly or quite fifty miles. It was only relieved by n single ray uf suusbino from tho humble log cabin of our pocrlcss friend, Anson Clement, and his sister, also a noblo spirit, which we passed in the foronoon. Wo did not loave our carriage, as it rained hnrd, but the cheering effect of a cull ut tho door, and a shako of the hand, lastad us all day long. Friend Clement lives iu the humblest and ubscurost manner, but to fow persons is our cause so much iudubted in all the West : either for fidelity to principle, or gnnorosity in contribut ing the "niatoriul aid." I say not, "May he live a thousand year" for souls like his, never can die. Yours evor truly, PARKER PILLSBURY. THE SCRAMBLE. The following letter from ft friend In Ashtabula County Is quite descriptive of the tactics, atratogy and unprincipled maneuvering which marks the best of our political struggles. It it addressed to a friend who has handed it to us for publication. We have bo bope that the election of those imprao- tioables almost Garrisonions will give any yery important aid to the anti-slavery cause. If nil the officers In the State were equally Impracticable, they could do nothing with publio teutimont, cor rupt and servile as it is. In our judgment, our impracticable anti-slavery friends will do much more to leave sucK" scraniblot" to those who know no higher meant than politics, and no higher object than suecess. Let the dead bury their dead. Lei the abolitionists combine to regenerate and suvq tho nation. THE SCRAMBLE. EAGLEVILLE, Oct. 23, 1853.

Qurley, a colored man from Boston, lie held sumo eight meetings iu this vicinity, and gavo good satisfaction. Ha appears to be a man of power aud oloipjcnce. The Anti-Slavery causo in this county is very fluttering. The small seed that has been sown by Pillsbury and tho Grifiings, has tukon root, it has boon watered and nursed by J. F. Selby, until it has becomo a largo tree, the branches whereof extend over ft large share of the wostorn portion of the county, and the pro-slavery Clergy and laymen are already trying to build their nests In its branches Thus wo live in hopes of seeing the day come when its brunches shall not only extend over a portion of a county, but that it shall extend from the mountains of snow in the North, unto the burning paths of the Sun in tho South, and from the rivors unto the end of the earth, until all shall become anti-slavery, from tho least to the greatest.
