THEODORE PARKER'S SERMON. , The following Is Mr. Parker' addios to his congregation, on tho Sunday when Anthony Burns : t ii.. n c . n .i. charge of loving Freedom and escaping from Slavery. From The Commonwealth. There was an Immense audienco at the Music Hall yesterday, to hear the Itcv. Thoodnro Parker. There was a general expectation that ho would have a " Lesson for the Day," and that vast hall, with it double tier of galluries, could not contain II the people who sought admittance. Mr. Parker , i delivered a short extempore discourse on the u7" ! ject uppermost In all minds, whieh we give la full below. He then delivered a short discourso on another .ubject. V hen ho arose to prn, he read a request for prayer, for Burns', deliverance. He .aid, in uhjtanee, (we cannot give hi lane-1 uage precisely ) that this wos the old form for such I requests, but he did not like it, It seoniod to ask Ood to do our duty. God was never backward to to do hi work, and we should do ours. He could not ask Ood to work a miracle to deliver Anthony Burns; although if ha should see fit to do so it should be accepted with proper sontimcnts of rev erence and gratitude. Iio had rcccivod tho same request in another form, which he liked better, and read as follows : TV all Ike Ckrittian .V!nuteit of tlie C7tnch nf unnn in isonun. BioTusssi I venture humbly to ask an Interest in your prayers and those of your congregations, that I may be restored to the natural nnd inalien able right with which I am endowed by tho Cre ator, and especially to the enjoyment of the bless ing of liberty, which, it is said, this Government wo ordained to secure. ANTHONY BURNS. Boston Slave Pen, May 24, 1854. ' The discourse which followed his " Lesson for the Day," was on tlie war now agitating Europe, and the rapacious aud unprincipled spirit of the men who would hurry us into another war to aggrandise the slave power, but he had some allus ion to the presont sUito of thing. In Boston. Here is one of tbcin : '. . " Boston I in a state of siege to-day. We are living under military rule, in order that wo may err the spirit nf Slavery, and Boston is hunting ground for the South, who respect u so much ! Our Nicholas is a Virginia kidnapper. Our ruler i a Judge of Probate." MR. PARKER'S DISCOURSE. , I have soma words to say in place of the scripture lesson, after the fashion of the Old Testamont prophets. Since last we came together, then has beon a mam stole in this city of our fathers. It is not the first, it may not be the last. Ho is now in the rat slave nan of the Citv of Boston. Ho is there, if I understand it aright, against the law of the Commonwealth, which it 1 am rightly inlorm ed, prohibit the use of the State ediucos as United States jail I may lie mistaken. Any forcible attempt to take him from that bassacoo of B is too, would be wholly without use. For, besides the holiday soldiers that belong to the City of Bos ton, ana ready to shoot down tiioir hrother in a just cause, or in ai unjust cause, any day, when the City Government gives them its command and it liquor, I understand there are ono hundred and ighty-tour mariues lodged in the Court-llouso, very man of thorn furnished with a musket and n bayonet, with hi side-arms and twenty-fuur ball cartridges. They are stationed also, in building rery strong, nnd where five mon, in a passage-way half the width of this pulpit, can defend it nguinsl fir and twenty, or fivo hundred. To keep the peace, the Mayor, who, the other day, regretted th arrest of our brother, Anthony Burns, nnd declared that his sympathies were vlwlty with tho alleged fugitive and of course wholly against the claimant and the Marshal in order to keep the peace of the city, the Mayor must bettome corporal of tlx guard for the kidnsnpers. He must keep the peace of our city and defend these guosts of Boiton over tho graves, the iinmonumentod graves of John Hancock and Samuel Adams, A man has been killed by violence. Some say he was killed by hi own coadjutor. I could easily to iler it. There i evidence enough that they were greatly frightened. These were not United State soldiers, but volunteor from the street of Boston, who, fur their pay, went into the Court-House to assist in kidnapping a brother man. They, I say. were so cowardly that they could not use the sim ple cutlasses they had in their hands, but smote right and left, like ignorant and frightened ruffians, a they were. They may havo slain their brother or not I cannot toll. It is said by some that they killed him. Another story is that he was killed by a hostile band from without. Some said hy a smlWt, soma by an axe, and others jot by a knife. A yet nobody know the foot. But a man has been killed. He was a volunteer in this service. He liked the business of enslaving a man, and bat gone to render an aooount to God for his gratuitous won. i weive men nave been arrested and are now in jail to await thoir trial for kiIM murder 1 Here, then, is one man butchored ana twelve men brought in peril of thoir livos. Why is this? Whose fault is itf Some eight year ago a Boston merchant, by hi meroeuarie, kidnapped a man w n ,k : . .. .i m i c 1 ' .... "j "4 uiu vuinay, ana earned nun off. Boston mechanics, the next day, held up the half-eagles which thov received a their pay for kidnapping a man. The matter was brought be fore the Grand Jury for the County of Suffolk, and Abundant evidenoe was presented, as 1 understand, tint they found " no bill." A wealthy merchant, ta the name of trade, hnd stolen a black man, swfco, on board a chip, had come to this city, had beta teised by the mercenaries of this merchant, kept by them for a while, and then when ha es caped, kidnapped a second timo in the City of Boston. That was one thing. Boston did not poaissj th deed t the merchant lost no " personal pepalaf Ity," The Fugitiv Slav bill was present ed Lo us, and Boston rose up to welcome it. , The greatest man In all the North came hore, and in this city told Massachusetts sho must obey the rngitiv Slav bill "with alacrity "that we mutt il "uoaojuar our prejudices" in favor of justice nd thj unalienable right of man, Boston "eon quared bar prejudice" in furor of Justice and th unalienable right of man. Do you not remembor the meeting that was hetf In Fnneull Hull, whao "polltiest oWW.f f rtun," (o4im eIM "tin Democratic Princo of the Devil," howled at the idea that there wn n law of dud tiis,her thnn the Fugitive Slave hill, lie sneered, unci asked, will you have tho " Jlilior Law or Uud" to rule over you 1 and tlx multitude that occupied the floor nnd the multitude that crowded the gal leriof howled down the higher law of God I They treated the higher law to a laugh find a howl! That was Tuesday night. It ni tho Tuesday be fire Thanksgiving Pay. On that Thanksgiving Day, I told the congregation thnt tho men who how led down tho hiirhor law of Almiirhtv God. had (got Almighty God to settle with) that they had sown mo winui nnu wouiu reap uiv w nirivriiiu. At that meeting Mr. Ornate told tho people, "ItK MKMBKKI Hkmfmtii: I K'mnnhrrt" Then no body kuew w hat to "romeinbor." Now you know. That is the state of that case. Then you " liK MEM5F.K" tlie kidnappers came here to seize Tho. Sim.:. Tlios. Sims was seized. Nine days he was on triul lbr more l.hsn Ms life, and nevor jaw a Judrc nover taw a uJiT.

They ,, .... vi..i. i.:n ft n i..i i i i .i , ,nn,i ,, ki(Iniirpor of mf) Ucr, mM hllve ,ccn no Fugitive Slavo bill in If.'iO. If Mussachusett in lrjU had declared the bill should not be executed, kidnapper would never havo shown his face in the streets nf Boston.. If, failing this, Boston had j said, in lttol, "Thomas Sims shall not bo carried off," and forcibly or peacefully, by tho majesty of. tho great mass of men, had resisted it, no kidnap- per would have come hero again. Thcro would ' been no Nobraska bill. But to every demand the slave-owner Massachusetts ha said: " Yesli yes! wo grant it nil I'' "Agitation must ceaso !"j " Save tho Union !" Southern Slavery is an in-ti- tutinn that is in earnest. Northern freedom Is nn institution that is rint in earnest, It was in earn est in '70 and 3. It has not been in earnest since. The Compromises arc but provisional. Slavery is tho only finality. Now, since the Nebraska bill is passed, an attempt is niado to add insult tn insult, injury to injury. There was a fugiilvo slave case at Syracuse this last week ; at New-York, a broth er of Itcv. Dr. Pcnuington, an ostablnihod clergy man ol large reputation, great character, acknowl edged learning, who has hi diploma from the University of Hoidollicrg, in. Germany, a more honorable source than that from which any clergy man in Massachusetts ever received his, kit broth er and two nephews wore kidnapped in New-York, and without any trial, without any defense, were hurried on into, bondage. . men at Boston, you know what was done in the last four day, lie hold the consequonces nf the doctrino that theio is no '-higher law." Look at Boston to-day. There are no chains around your Court house there are - around it. A hundred and eighty-four Unit ed Slates soldiers are mere, iney aro, 1 am told, mostly foreigners the scum of the earth, none but such enter into armies as common soldiers in a country like ours. I say It with pity they are not to blame for having been born where they were and tchai they are. I pity tho scum as well us I pity the mass of men. Tho accident of birth keens you and me from being among that same scum. The soldiers are there, I sny, and their trado is to kill. Why is this sol You remember the meeting nt Faneuil Hall last Friday when oven the words of my friend Wendell Phillips, the most eloquent words that get spoken in America, in this century, hardly prevailed upon tlie multi tude from going, and by violence attempting to storm the Court-House What stirred them up? It was tho spirit of our fathers tho spirit of just ice and liberty in your heni ts, nnd in my heart, and in the hearts of all of us. Sometimes It gets the better of a man's prudence, especially on occa sions like this, and so excited was that assembly of four or live thousand men that even the words of eloquent Wendell Phillips could hardly restrain them iiom going nt once inslilv to the Court House and tearing it to the ground. Boston is tho most peaceful nf cities. Why t Because we have com monly had a place that was worth keeping. No city respects laws so much, liecauso tho lav. s havo lioen ma.lo ny the people, lor the people, and am Lif, 1, .h -.wta... II...... ;d n ,iw which the people would not kcop. It is a law of our Southern masters a law not fit to keep. Why is Boston in this contusion to-dnv 7 1 no l ncitivc: Slave bill Commissioner has just now been sowing thi wind thnt we may reap the whirlwind. The old Fugitive Slave bill Commissioner stands back ; ho has gone to look after his "personal popularity." But when Commissioner Curtis docs not dare ap pear in this matter, another mnn comes forward. and for the first time soek. to kidnap bis man in the Citv of Boston. Judne Lorinn is a man whom Judge Loring is a man whom I respcetcd and honored. His privats lifo is whol- ly blameless, so far as I know. Ho Las been, 1 uniformly boloved. His character has enti-! tied turn to the esteem ot Ins lellow citisens. 1 have known him somewhat, I never heard a mean word from Lini many good words. Ha was once the law partner of Horace Mann, nnd learned hu- inanity of a great tcaehcr I have respected him a good deal. Ho is a rctjmtuble man m the Boston sense of that word, and in a much hiuhcr sense; at least I thought so. Ha is a kind hearted, char itable man ; a good neighbor ; a fast friend when politic do not Interfere ; charitable with hi purse; an excellent husband; a kind father; a good rela tive. And I should as soon have expected that venorablo man who sit before me, born before your Revolution Samuel Mar I should ns soon have expected Aim to go and kidnap Hobert Morris, or any other of tho colored men I boo around mo, as I should have oxpectod Judge Loring to do this thing. But ho has Bown tho wind, nnd wo are reaping tho whirlwind. I need not say what I now think of him. He is to act to-morrow, and may yot act like a man. Let us wait and c. Perhaps there i. manhood in him yet. But, my friends, all this confusion is his work. Ho know be was stealing a man, born with the same right to life, liberty and tho pursuit of happiness a him self. Ho know the uavoholdor had no more right to Anthony Burns than to his own daughter, lie know the consequences of stealing a mnn in Bos ton.-' He knew that there are men in Boston who havs not yet conquered their prejudices mou who respect th Hichsr Law of God.

Meanwhilo a new intrigue was set on foot by a former United States consul nt Mexico, and two men, by the names of Greon and Walsh who havo made themselves somewhat notorious since in con have noctlon with Haytinn matters to secure the rocofr of nitiou of the independence of Dominica by the United States, upon such terms as would render that republic a desirable placo of emigration for j , j 1 tho State Department. The time for its consider think, ation by President Pierce, however, finally arrived, The following resolution. nre!?nant with results fur more sorions than will ncnerallv be susnected. was submitted to the Sonata venterdn h Mr. Douglas! 'littmrtdi lliat the tommiltce flh rrcii:n ptuienry of iBmilili.i nf Dominica, and ol opening diplomatic intercourse with the same." To understand the Smnnrt nf this resolution fu!lv' past history of our diplomatic relations with the Lland of St. Domingo should ha explored, and te .ccrct poM-y pursued towards it by every ministration incO iIiTrisou' jhould Lo known. We havo only tinio and spaco to glanco at one two of their leading features. Whilo Mr. Calhoun was Secrotary nf Slate, by the namo of Hogan was sent out to St, Do- mingo on a secret mission, the ultimate object of which was to do something there to counteract the efforts at self-government, mnking at the othor end of the isloniF, by the lliyticns. Mr. llugau report was so absurdly false, that Mr. Calhoun wns ashamed to publish it, nor has it ever been permitted to see the light. Subsequently tho I'ominicnns tnnt is, trioso occupying the eastern extremity nf the island, the successors of tho an ricnt Spanish colonists revolted from the Hay liens, by tho connivance it is supposed, of tlie President Uoycr. When SoloiHiio was chosen Pres ident, he marched an army to the east, with the intention of restoring the integrity of the republic. Uo reached Axua, almut halt tlie Uittnnce, when, in consequenco of the unusual dryness of the sea son nnd the impossibility of getting food for his horses, he was olilitfod to retire. Soon nfter his the planter of the middlo and sonthern States with their slaves. To enhance the value of their services to tho Dominicans, and of courso to imv prove tho conditions and privileges to be secured to tho projected American colony, they also undertook to prevent Solouquo's executing his purpose of re newing his attacks upon the Dominican territory. For this purpose Walsh wa sent to Port-ati-l'rince, the capital of Hayti, by Mr. Fillmore, with instruc tions to co-oncrate with tho EhslUh nnd French consuls resident there, in threatening him with the joint intervention of tho three government if he persiktcd in his design of invading Dominica. ' This absurd proceeding on the part of Mr. Fill more was treated by Solouquo with more re spect than It deserved, for it wnsnot resented ; but the Emperor declined to give nny pledges for the future. Tho correspondence which passed between tlie intervening commissioners and the Haytian government, togother with tho despatches of W sl.-h to the Stuto Department, appeared at length in tho Kttninij 7W, about three years ago, and we voature to sny that our governmeut nover appeared to less adrnntnga in any controversy l itli a foreign power. At the very tuna that Mr. Fil'morc, through his swaggeriti;, ill-bre4 nrd reckless commissioner,! was trying to bully the Haytien government, which by tho way, wo had never recognised, into nn - ac quiescence in tho revolt nnd secession of two-thirds of its territory for tho bcuelit of another govern ment, w hich also Wo had nercr recognized, he was reading Kossuth and his companion long homilies at Washington against entangling alliances and foreign intervention. Ho could not permit tho American envernment to casp a siizh for the wretched Hungarians, because, he said, it was not the policy of our government to take any part in the controversies of other powers; and at the very time he was secretly at work trying to frighten a feeble and ignorant people, who were making an effort to govern thcnisolve nnd to detervc a pomion among the independent nations of tho earth, into a 1 ,,. ----- -1 enneeitBiiin wliii.li wAiitrt inevifnl K tnntl in ponsln.it : . . : ' v . : ijorucr wars, nnu unceasing waste ni vmua nuu ... 1 .

He reached tho city in Fubrunry last, nnd we presume the motion of Mr. Douglas is based upon despatches received from lum. In view ul tins presumption, it mny ho well for the public to know something more ot this commissioner.

Eitqnirtr thus alludes to the increasing insecurity of human "property" of Vir ginia Slaveholder! Em-ape or Slaves. Tho Norfolk Beacon of Wed nesday announces tho escape of five mora slaves to tho North, the property of William W. Hall, Sig ourney and Mrs. Shepherd. Tho Beacon of Thurs dya has the following on the same subject: "Tho practice of stealing our slave property is daily in creasing. It is now almost a daily occurrence for negroes to escape to the North. On Tuesday three more, tho property of Messrs. Camp, Dnlryniple and Crowdcr, editor of tho Argus, made their cm- capo." The montal nnd moral bewilderment which so confounds all distinctions of right and wrong, nnd tho significance of tho most common words is both ludicrous and pitiable. Wure ever good and evil, light aud darkness, truth and falsehood, honesty and fraud more shockingly roverstdf Tho Vireinia slave-breeder who seizes the new born babe, born in his own house, and dooms it from its birth to a life of slavery, mny be a very honest citizen and worthy Christian ; but the plundered slave, who, ofier years nf suffering, escapes from his plunderers to freedom, has stolen himself, nnd every humane or generous man who responds to tho fugitive's nppenl for sympathy and help in Li tiigiti lor irceuom, is also a tiuei. monstrous as arc tl.cso perversions of reason and truth, they arc but tho natural fruit of a system which, barren of all good, is fcrtllo only in monttroBitics. Deeply as thev ma irrieve. t K'v cannot inrnnu mteil hrent and thoughtful men, for the4 have lone since learned to expect evil and only evil from slavery. They know it is the parent of all vices and crimes. that it nourishes and aggravate nil bad passions that it can live only in an atmosphere of falsehood, and In the darkness ol ignorance. This migratory epidemic, which i earryinr off so many ot the slaves of irginia, is by no means eonnneu va tne uoraor otatos. ine ottliction sorely felt, even in the fnr South, where slavery holds undisputed sway, and where escapo from its power, except inrougn ueatirs nark gate, seems altogether hopclessj. Fottcrs and dungeons ovcr scors and watchmen, bloodhounds and professional slave hunters, and the terrors of punishment in- lncled on the recaptured fugitive, are all insufficient to deter men, kidnapped and enslaved, from at tempting to regain their liberty. An illustration nf this truth lies before us in a half column of ad vertisements clipped from the New Orleans Pica yunc of April 2ut,i, which contains eltven advertise ments of runaway slaves, all ofi'oring rewards from twenty-live to two hundred dollars each for their apprehension, 'n . ,i . . r . r ,i . . , ' :.t...1 .
