I'EAR iriind Jil ARILS! r.xccpt to moko a few brief entries in my memorandum, I am doing my first writing since losing sight of land, to day. My first latter was to my loved ones nt homo. My second i to you and tho rcadors of tho Bugle. None surely have highor claims, to gratify, no oth er could givo me higher pleasure. At sunset I look often to the west and say, this sido of that goldon cone is New England, nnd beyond N'ew England 1 Ohio, with those adjoi.iing states, where liyo those I most lovo on earth, or of created bo- "J wooro cisc ami mat guucu uiisct cone, I just the frame with which I would sur- round such a picture. And so I gaxo nt my gorgeous vision. You will know, dear Marius, whether yoa lovo your friends, wjiou thrco thousund miles of wutery wilderness shall separate you from them. And then too, if nwful sea sickness shall havo tcizod and bcuud you down day after day, until you scarcely care how loon tho frail plank that partitions you from eternity shall split asunder. You will thou know whethor a smile, a kind look, ft cheering word, or oft soothing hand of inmo cherished spirit, would impart bliss or not lo your saddened soul, rout suffering body. But to-duy, the terror and tor ment of sea sickness arc past, nnd triumphantly l ireaa oiu ocoan under my leet. 1 litis is one victory after another secured oniy by patient en durance. So far, my voyngo ha been attended with less conos of oxcilcmcut than could have been expect ed. We have had ninny squall of hail and snow, indeed no day has been without them. But a severe gale has not crossed our path. No "billows, mountain high," haio coino near us. Scarcely lias a wave broken ou to our docks at all never to nny b-idy's inconvenience. Tho action of our ship has not been rearing nnd pitching I'.ko an untamed colt, but rolling from sido to side liko a log. 1 should have liked iho other motiou belter, ijomc day tho rolling has been so violent, as that every dish on the table, and overy candle had to bo con fined, and tabic and settee of course, screwed fast to the floor. And then you hud t) watch well your tea and coffee cups, your praties and unices, or they would all be leaping into your lap, ns familiarly as a family of playful kittens. But tho su dimo grandeur of tho ocean itself, if a thenio for contciuplutii n, thoi ch r.ot for descrip tion. N'ono who appreciate it w ill daro attempt to uuscal its mysteries. To inu Columbus hns become a rout, not a fabled Neptune, and I contemplate him a indeed almost a god. To plough the pnth lcs surface crcn now, in wintry storm and tem pest, in dark as well as day, is work for heroic men. But what was it when that rash adventurer dared defy it then unknown perils, and feel his doubtful wny over thousand after thousand of before unmeasured miles, with men more mutinous than the waves, in search of unothcr world, in the existence of which, nono but ho had even faith much less know lodgo or-description. Before, it had ruled undisturbed, its nwful empire, as its billow and the ages rolled on together. Such deed of daring, it had never frowned upon till tbon, at least for unknown generations. Suroly it ought to li no surrendered at discretion, a it did. No wonder it boro the conquering hero to tho boon he sought. - In him, subliiiio greutnes met its equal, and imiro than equal, nnd loyally it yielded the sceptre. Tho riddle of tho .Sphinx was solved, and its mysterious power was Buriendored forover. I have loved tho ocean long and well. Many havo asked me on your sido of tho AllcghouicH, why I would imt remain in tho West. My answer lias ever been, I am a child of the sea, and long to be near my mother. But tho has rather tlejt-muth- trcd it over mo on this my first fondling, with her j ever heaving bosom. And I havo almost vowed , ... , , , i. i'i revenge upon her at times, and determined to hide out or ner eignt in tne uoopest vaiioy ot tno west. But to-duy with a ausliino nnd calm, like a New England May, she is rocking mo so gently, and I feel o well, and strong, and vigorous, that she ha convinced and conquered me. And she makes mo believe fully, that I am indeed better fur whut I have suffered that her medicinos, though harsh .to take, are yet most efficacious; and she after ail, fthe Quoen of this grand systom of Hydropathy.

Tho Free Soil party, nnd tho organ of that party, tho Frco Democrat, coming up for consideration, their portion was thoroughly discusteJ by S. S. Foster, Thomas Scott, Mr. and others. EVENING SESSION. "locnvcv. and diKsominato throughout our land the' B. S. Jones and J. W. Walker nrgucd the superi ority of moral and political action, not only in point of principle, but ns a matter of expediency. S. S. Foster, in a concluding and nnd powerful speech, demonstrated from tho very "nature of things," tho organization of nil anti-slavery political party must of necessity provo n failure, 'i ho Financo Conmiittco collected the sum of $o",75. The rc oluticms w cro then taken up separately, and adopted as follows: 1. Vcsohul, That wc rcitcinto moot solemnly the sentiment which from the beginning has been tho rallying cry oi aiMiiuionists, Hint slavery is n sin agninsl God and tho highest crime against man. and shall so declare until this guilty nation repents of its wrong, nnd demonstrates ils sincerity by un doing the heavy burdens and setting tho oppressed free. 2. Res'ihrtl, That this Convcnfion deeply ffle'.s tho necessity of n thorough organization of the niiti-.slaveiy cause in this .State, on the basis of the American Anti-Slavery Sociclv, by which it shall bo taken from the arena of politics, and tho control of demagogues nnd political aspirants, anil placed in tho hands uf enlightened philanthropists, who havo no object to promote but tho highest good of our common country, una nro under no temptations to pervert it to party or sectarian purposes. 3. Hetohat, That wo heartily rejoico in tho au spicious commencement of this work in tho recent organization of n Stalo Anti-Slavery Society, nnd sincerely hope it will go on until there shall bo nn efficient auxiliary association in every county and town in tho Stalo, and wo hero pledgo to the Stnto Society our wannest sympathies and cordial co-operation in its holy work of renovating the public sentiment of tho community, so that slavery cau liud no support, either in tho political or the religious history of tho country. 4. Itesolcal, That wo havo no controversy with Churches, ns such, but oppose them only in so far as thny sustain slavery, as abolitionists it matters not lo us whether ecclesiastical organizations bo catholic or protestant, whether they hold to the doctrino of tho trinity or unity, whether they practice- baptism by immersion or by sprinkling, worship in silence or with hymns of praise nnd songs of thanksgiving, if they nro true to human ity, taithlul in puvoealing tho cause ol tho slave, they will nicot with no opposition from tho anti- slavery platform. llctoleed, That no church organization can occupy ft true nuti-slavcry position, which retains in membership men who arc slaveholders, who do fend or apologise for tho system, who nro members of a government that sustains slavery, or the sup porters oi n party which sanctions or tolerate it. C. Jicsohed, That although there is a difference in the nmuuiit of pro-slavery inllncncc exerted by different ecclesiastical organizations, we know of ! but one rcligiou denomination which we regard as! free from slavery; and it always nf- j fords us pleasure to mako mention ol' the uuti-sla- very character und consistent position of Iho Old school covenanters. I. Ilr-iolvid, That whilo wo rocogmze in tho r reo SM ' RlJ Mrn fl.;cn(U ()f IlTOi wo cannot regard tho party itsolf as in any sense eutitlcd to our confidonco and support, ns an anti-slavery niioucy, but on the contrary, wo bc- - , - ' "? Z' Vh. genius of the niili-shivory enterprise, nnd ono of the most formidable obstacles to its progress : 1st, Bceauso it diverts tho attention of abolition ists from the nil important work of converting tho community to anti-slavery, to a mere scram Mo for political placo and power. 2d, Bo':nuso practically it degrades the anti-slavery cause in tho public estimation from its high moral pre-emiiicneo, to a level with the political questions of the day, nnd transforms its advocates from Christian philanthropist into mere political demagogues. 2d. Because it prevent the nomination and con sequent eloction to nfflco by tho other parties of candidate friendly lo liberty, nnd thereby greatly retard the reform of our national and State legis lation. And J Where, the Free Democrat, the accredited or gan ot tlio r reo Sou party lias witiuiiy ana repeat edly misrepresented the position and doctrines of the agents of the American Anti-Slavery Society now laboring in this Stato, as well ns the position and doctrines of the Michigan Anti-Slnvery Society and its agents, enileavoring Lo produce tno impres ninn that tho principles they ad vocuus are calculated And designed to san tho foundation of all good, to brine into discredit the doctrine of Christian Dem- U..i - r 1(i immoralily. den vine to them and their frionds the right of defenso through the eel- - unitis of the paper through which they have been assailed and maligned. Therefore, Refilred, Hint the Free Pimnoint, while claim ing to be especially a fi iend of the slave, is doing nn eminently pfo-'slnery work in misrepresenting nnd defaming some of the truest friends of freedom, that its denial of the right of defense in its columns proves tho despotism of its conductors, that its cowardly, partial policy disqualifies it from being the recognized organ of any party which clnims to bo the'ndvocntc of " free men, f'ico thought, and free speech." Rewired, That while we do hot hold nil tho members of Iho 1'iec Soil party responsible for tho minim us conduct ot their organ, yet wnen mcj- become acimaiii'.cd with tho fuel of the ense, w o cannot but regard longer continuance of their sup- fort as an evidence that thev approve, or at least uo not unapprove oi MS course; ami nicy can cmj demonstrate tho contrary ny bearing a practical testimony against its present conductors, and so rclorin their organ thai it shall heeomo a lair, im partial, truthful and decent publication. A motion that tho Secretaries bo Instructed to forward a copy of the proceeding and resolutions to the Anti-Slavery Bugle, Voico of the Fugitive and Free Democrat, for publication, w as carried.

N'over wa I out in weather so bitterly coivj. In an open wagon we buffeted the wind and snow, till v.e could endure no longer. After thaw ing out wo started acain, nnd at uight reached Ann Arbor, whore at the hotiKo ol Richard Glazier wo met our good friends the Fosters and others, on their wnv hoi-e.

They enmo on tho cars to Ann Ar bor; just ns they woro nouring the station, passing round a very short curve, tho engine ran off the track, pitching headlong dow n a steep bank, roll ing over nnd over, stopping bottom uppermost.

Next day found us at the heme of Iho Fullers, on tho evoning of which quitu a number of friends met nnd held nn informal meeting preparatory to tho meeting of tho next day. At ten o'clock tho meeting was culled to order, a goodly number being in attendance. Cyrus Fuller was oloclod President. Tho official report will be furnished for the Buglo. During the meeting, our friend U. S. Jones nrrivcil, adding much to cur joy. On Sunday tho bouso w as crowded. Tho discussions were animated and thorough, quite a number par iicipatin;; therein. Tho meeting towards tho close was annoyed by one or two rather querulous froc soil men, still much good feeling prevailed. Thero are muny sterling friend.i of tho slave hero, and they evidence their love for tho cause, by freely sustaining it with their means. This town must havo contributed this year, considerably moro than one hundred dollar to the fun. Is of the Mich. Society. Sevoral of our friends from Adrian nnd the neighborhood were here, though it is ni:;!y miles dis tant, and lhey had to come in wagons, among whom was Thos. Chandler and wife, Jacob Walton, Ann llayhall, Le. On Tuesday morning wo aaiu sep arated. Stephen and Abby returned to Ann Arbor, B. S. Jones to Wuterford, nnd 1 lo Famiington, where I spoke oneo in tho Frionds' House, (Pro gressive) and twico in tho Union House, a new, beautiful building. The meetings were very well attended, tho Ia:,t being the most numerous. Par ticular attention was paid to tho Nebraska Plot on the second night, nnd the enthusiasm was great.
