Krie Co., Ohio, ) May, 12, 1834. j Tbe physical forco argument adoptod by the women ot Y inchostcr, in tho tupprossion of the ruin trnflic, ba called forth a good deal of lauda tory criticism from the press. No doubt much of thi is owing tJ editorin gallantry. For it can nBru'J postime mat any nignor principle it at the root of it. Tbe Lily, of course, mutt be an exception, a it claim the hiuh honor of beinc conducted eolely by women. The Lily thus con cludes an article upon the (ubjoct t " May the good work begun by the women of Winchester, be per tcvercd in. Let them not cease their labor ; let their xonl and determination never faltor or grow cold, but let Ihom keep a steady eye on the too, and be ready for an attack whenever he manifest a disposition to resume his fiendish work, and their triumph will in tho end be complete." The , Lilu is a paper intendod to iterate woman a nancr hiyurst mierest. i et the Lily ap- courso taken by the women of Win- Chester, anil call, their exhibition of physical forea jovo(0j t0 nor ; I proves of the ci a -gooa irorK." it it do a " goon work ' in women, to cultivate the lower passions of their nature, and . .. ...... ... . . ... ... ineir oouiDaiivcness anu aesiruo- utciiuf:., im-ii in. j,ny in ngiu, mm iruinon uugilli to ciuii together, make exciting speeches, arm to of themselves with weapons, and prococd to the work of destruction. Dut it appears to bo rather an tin- elevating course of training for the fair onct cf tbe land. The Lily must have an exulted viow of " good work" for the womon. But it it to suppress the rum traffic. What then becomes of woman's boastod moral power, if she must " kcop a steady eyo ou tho foe, and be ready for an attack" with hatchets 1 The advocates of Woman's Right have mado the moral argument their strongest position. " Tho presence of women," eay they, "at the hut tings or at public meetings, would have a softening influence upon tho other sex it would purify and oluvato public sentiment." Truly, a mob of " Spar tan Indies" dashing into tho midst of an election meeting, ufter tho fashion of the Winchostor Indict into a grog shop, would have an ennobling influ ence on the public, mind. Yet who can eay such would not be tbo case, when wo find tbe fair advo catoof physical force in tho Lily justifying fouii- nino riots. On the other baud, the opposcr of A Oman's KighU have said : 'thatl allow women to go. within the contaminating influence of an election mob? Woman! naturally to retiring, to kind, to gentle, and so modest? Preposterous How corrupting how demoralizing! However anomalous it may appear, the doings at Wincherter triumphantly refute both those positions.' The Woman't Right man ctn no lunger advance the moral argumeut. Nor can the anti-Woman ' Right man exclaim, with tickish eentimentalism, " Oh these women are too soft, too tender, too gentle, too amiable to compete with tho rowdies and ruffi of the opposite sex." Those who have the moral training of the youtli in baud will find their efforts forever unavailing vhey exhibit iu their on n lives a reckless diHrfi.i-.l'P''0-''1"''!'- for order and peace. What impression would the rather make upon Ins child, if constantly preach ing tbo superiority of morul suasion, nd at the sumo tiuio duily applying the Lish? If it be tup- poaeu uiai tno motner endeavor to inculcate the i u'"'" principle of purity, ia ber example of et i important tlian that or the rather? How can the, Ujn, with propriety, touch the ductriuct of rwiee' r,,r,.n , 1 , ,rlfrnoe; ' ''""fciu die sad example of sallying rorth wuh a bludKeon or nn axe to de- j mulish ber neighbor property? How can the a demand or ber son or ber husband a higher r L,j(,i1,,,(,j,j,i r . l. " , ! "ff R T& righteoutnest than ''?' fcelingor appreciating? What- ever may lie the object of such demonstrations, tbe effect upon tbe ooujui unity is decidedly iiijuriuuM. , i i . r ... f " "T i'lVfi 'rnm 'ncrmrageaient tb Winchester women bail from the vloiiy, we aiav i.i. ... ..! -...., . . . . nio uton uiw as nut tlse bngina'uig ot the end overy tuwa ia the t ailed States will have an organ ised hand of rioter, "arrayed witlr truth, Urt and haUlid." ' A jrloriou trio! M'hat connection there is betweeu lov and liakleta, we leave for J. V. Pavnt in explain. : It uaniu4 be the Mm kind of lovt manifested by Christ toward publican ,nd sinners. Pcflmps the Rev." J.' J. I'ooner. or tl. , , j0 Ror. A. Loom, tht leader of the " Spartan ladies," or lb "beautiful and rtaotute" Amanda Way, have discovered tort tcrlpturat connection which lest acute mind bava failod to perceive. Th physical foreti argument I the weakest of all argumont. Women, especially, ought not to retort to it. What law ha placed them in their present subordinate position f Th law of phytioal inferiority. Man claimed th right, because he had the physical power, to put her down and keep ber there. Th Winchetterappeal to arm justifies him in hi course. If fore ia to be th recognised principle by which we are to be guidod in ur re lation to each other, then woman may appeal for freedom in vain. The physical force argument necessarily implies a weakness in moral argument. Let a man feci that he hat justice, truth, right on hi tide, and ha will never knock down hit antagonitt. If the fair ftdrocatoi of physical force come out of the combat a crest fallen a the poor Chinese in the opium war, they must only blame the agency they have invoked. There cannot be more deplorable spectacle than thnt of woman forgetting the dignity of her nature, to enter the arena of physical warfare. wovor just, apparently, the causo in which she may be engaged, th ought never to forget that tier greatest power consist in lore, her greatest victo ries are to be achieved by fore. Frnntio with rage, and armed with weapon, the I a a fit tubject for pity or ridioulc. Her influence for good i forever gone.

DUNKIRK, May 28th,1854. 1 ! Ma. IloniNsos, Drar Sir I It i remarkable that the Anglo-Saxon race is so bitter against tbe sons and daughter of Ham. Just a though there were none of God' creature but themselves. A conversation I bad last evening with a few lead ing members of the M. E. Church, convinces me moro than evor of th dopravity of the human heart. Mon who oall themselves christian, and belong to a christian band can advance such senti ments, as can bo from none other than tho dovil. Can they be regenerated I They say they are. Can they be convorted? to what? not to the truth; for to the truth they are blind. They are aiming their shafts against all Anti-Slavery pnpert, and assort that you are tbe propagator of falsehoods, and the Bugle ia ooinpoeed of lies, and that it the character of all abolition paper. I asked them they were acquainted with the Anti-Slavery Bugle, and bad ever road it ; they answered In tho nega tive. I told them tlioy wero protty judge, to con demn a paper that they knew nothing about Well they judged it from all other Abolition pa- perl, I will take the responsibility upon myself aver that theso individuals have never read a true abolition paper. They ay they an abolitionist. Terhap tbey have seen Mr. Hotmer't paper, the organ of the MctUodlbt E. Church at Auburn but can we tay, he is a thorough aholltionUt. I hardly think be is, for, if he were, he would not ba found publishing a paper for a pro slaver Society. Ther i the if I Chritlian Advocate and Journal, which is decidedly Vrom those paper they get their abolition view. They might as well refor to paper published by the devil, If he were a printer and publisher of a paper for a particular sect, (and sometime I thiuk hi latanio majesty has much to do with many of tbe leading journal the day,) for trutk, a to expect the truth, the whole' truth, and all the truth, to be published these popular papers, They dare not, or at least do not enlighten tbe laity regarding the truo position of the church Slavery. I find a great many men otherwise in telligent ignorant of the foot, that alavery exists in the M. K. Church, North. And there are great number of these individual, who cannot bear htar tbe truth, a wa the case with those with whom I wa conversing last evening.

A FRAGMENT. In all thing portaining to life tbore it no back' ward itep. We go on though we chango and can not be the same a yesterday or Inst year, or in childhood. That which is thought, felt, or expres sed, I ortrert we may think, fed or ak differ ently at another time, but tho past hath received the impress of iu surroundings, and no effort of human power can change it. It I In rain thnt w say " 'twas an idle word, I rocnll it," yet it may prevent the like error again, and thus are w our own teacher, or th life which mil, Influences the life which it. No one ought to allow the energy of mind to languish, or yield to the teeming ill of adrerso circumstances, and I never could realize that "to bear, it to conquer our fate," for not trc but it con quer, and we have made no advance in any way. I mean not that the thousand difficulties which society hot, and (till it inflicting on itself, will not, at many limos, weary th heart and wound the spirit, but au ever open thought, or effort, for the best way will enable ut to go round if we cannot mount orer, and a "labor i life," so will the effort have it reward. , We may not nlway act for th beat, perhaps that very betl lias become o beclouded by ialtet, that we cannot ee it in tbe obscurity; but with a heart full of life' higher aspirations, and a heart searching fur the true, we shall surely know of the joy which are the a:in and end of existonce.

A more coolly planned Insult to the North could not have been devised, nor can wo conceive bow its elocution could have been made more humiliating. The South had just repudiated it contract with freedom, in ipit of remonstrance unexampled in earnestnese and number. It bad stolen thousands of iquare mile of free soil front free labor, and cursed it with slavery, and while yet th cannon were belchiug forth its fiendish triumph over this repudiation and piracy, lackeys are sent to Boston, to teat the subserviency of Massachusetts and the North, by a man hunt. The place tno. It was Botton in the shadow of Bunker Hill, where It was supposed there wa tome remnant of the spir it of those noble touts, who indignantly resisted the military despotism of King George. It wa Botton, where Anti-Slavery had had its tent and centre for a quarter of century. And the time. It wa that of the three day session of the Now England Convention (the fruitful moth' er of anti-alavery assembling,) nnd of tho Freo Soil State Convontion. A time when tbe working Anti-Slavery of Massachusetts aud Now Kngland were assembled, whon they could bo insulted to their fucos, and taunted with the manifest evidence of their feebleness, and tlio overwhelming power of thoir euemy. Slavery challenged the anti-slavery of the State to see it march a slavo by day light throngh the street of their capitol to slavery to tee biin surrendered to his fato by a Boston commissioner of respectability, aud of revolution ary and patrician blood. It challenged thorn to see thoir law subverted their State power anni hilated in the presence of the central despotism at Washington. It challenged them to submission hy th pretence of 184 ruffians, with tT. S. arms and uniform, who pointed those arm at Boatou citixent, and compelled Boston wen quietly to ub- nut to their indignities, witn their artillery cnargeu with grape thot, and ready to rake their itreett and make them flow with blood. And most hu miliating of all, to tee these hired ruffians, sus tained in guarding thi poor, lone Anthony llurni, in tho Boston slave pen, by tome f 00 citixen sold iers of MostachusetU, who wore ready to shoot down their noighbor and fellow citixons, if tbey did not smother their humanity and indignation, and quietly submit to tho outrage, upon Burnt, upon thomselvot, upon their Stato and country. Thus outrageous wa slavery in It insolence, and iu every point it ha succeeded. The aboli tionist are tpit upon Massachusetts with her million of inhabitants, i insulted and hor power annihilated. The law of Virginia are triumphant orer Masaehusett she and ber sister state may as well dismiss their legislatures and sate tbe ex pense of their Govornor'a salaries, unlett they are prepared for resistance, and resistance even unto blood if need bo. Ther wa strong indignation, and deep fceliug of mortification and humiliation. But there was no resistance. No real attempt at rescue. But only submission. Tbe people evidently felt the power of the government waa against them, and they wore not propared for treason and rebel lion. Shame on them that they were not, while their city wa in th hand of troops, and foreign er as soldiors, were quartered in thoir court house to exolude citizens, and teour the enslavement one of their number on their own toil, and in thoir own metropolis. But though poor Burn ha gone to slavery and Masaehusett is dishonored and alavery mad with joy at her hellish triumph yet we are not without hope. Much wa done in Button last week to bring the people to the point of resistance. They learned fast, lust week, tbe true character and purpoee of slavery. Union with tuch perfidi ous men must have lost much of it marvelout tacrednest, and kidnapper Suttle, the V, 8. troops, and Virginia threats to Senator Sumner, with oth er accompaniment, have impressed upon the peo ple a lesson which anti-slavery men have ever in oulcated, but fur which, with tbe niass, they have failed to tecur credence or even attention. ' The beteiging of our cities the garrisoning of our court house to enforce Virginia law, wilt touch the pooplo if often enough repeated. But we doubt whether Suttle will evor eontent again vitit Boston on tuoh an errand, Wa then Id glad to see him try it. He might succeed again. But he would find that Boston wa tht wiser for hi present visit. ' ..,.,,,.. - a FTnn Mattiuw,' the Irish Temperance advo title, ha. h4 a second. alTack of palsy. THE NEXT STEP. Wa Um that th Stat of Virginia t about W press her claim to th right of her citlxon to take" their slave to free State, at their pleasure. Jon athan Lemnion, a Virginian, took hi ilave td Now York, a our reader will temember oa bi way to Arkansas, rather a round about way, at the NewTork Judge thought, nnd he accordingly die charged th .lave on a writ of habeas corpus, from the service of their master. The New York cotton merchant paid Mr. Lemmon about two price for hi discharged chattol. Northern Virginia think ing this good opportunity to transform Nw,York to a slav State, appealed Hid question, and i now about to pre a decision, if possible, in her favor. And with such a court a decide what ia law ror this nation, we do not see why the should not sao' ceed. New York ha consented with alacrity to catch and bold irgiuia slaves when they stray from their masters, and w do not see wby they should refuse this friendly sorvico, when the master himself accompanies them to look after their Inter ests. Of course, tho principle once (ottled that they may take them to the State, they may remain and hold them so long a they ploase ; fur to turn' such honorable men at slaveholder out of th' Stato would not be once to bo thought of or toler ated. Of thia the Tribune lays i "The modest demand of Virginia ia substantially that slaveholders may bring their .lavot to New York, go to Saratoga with tlicrii, and turn the whit men of the Stato into a committeo to watch them, and tee thnt they do not run away from their mat tor. Thlt it one of the first steps towards that gloriou consummation looked for by Toombs, when he shall triumphantly rail the roll of bit slaves on? Bunker Hill." Slavery has now secured all the remaining un nrgnniicd territory of the nation for herself, anal now, a there are no more land in that direction to conquer, she turns her effotts to the subjugation And the question ' f th organfiej free States, wji now bo pressed lo a settlement a question in no ws). ond to that which has just boon decided against liberty, by Congress. - Will our people tee that tliore it and can be no cessation in the demands of slavory, until iht-ha tubjugnted all to herself? ECCLESIASTICAL ACTION. Tho clergy of tho country eem more than' usually aroused to tho importance of doing;. something ngaiust slavery. On our outside to-day may bo found a letter from Dr. Peck, a dig--' nitary in the Methodist church, which certainly nininlests a real progress, since the time when ha. advocated submission to tbe fugitive law. Thar multitudinous remonstrance to Congress against the Nebraska iniquity, is another indication of their purposes, and of the progress of the pooplo. . We see also numerous resolutions of ecclesiastical' bodies, somo of them strong and much to the point True the Presbytoriun Assemblies show a conserv atism which Whig political conventions now-a-dayt would not fail to shame. But even th cowardly New School Aatembly could not quite escape agi tation, a it teem by the following account of their proceeding on the 20th ult., from th Tri bune's report, though it resulted in nothing but a little agitation. But that it wholesome. After tho sudden adoption of the no-action report on the tubject of Slavery yesterday morning, there was no little exultation innuifestoa on the part of ' some, but in the afternoon the Assombly had a scene which show, how full the public mind it of thi. one all-absorbing subject. A we.tern man,.' Prof. Sander, o far a. appearance and declara tion prove anything, w ithout the least idea of dol ing anything to excite heat, moved to postpone .oiiio unfinished business in ordor to introduce ' resolution expressing the erief of this body at th' Nebraska and Kansas bill now before Cougrc., In an instant tho wholo Assembly wot in an ex cited state, but from different causes. Some nauf unto any discussion of slavery at any time, other believe thnt as an Assembly wo have said and donn all we can, other thought that the body having so much business yet to do, ought not to wnstetts timiv in doing again what has bcon done, and still other burn with tool to bear a fresh testimony against Slavery, and especially against the "Nebraska villainy," at one of them called it yesterday. Per--oral capitul speecbot wero made, and showed that, this last stride of the slave power is viewed with the deepest abhoirencc. After tbe ditcutsion had proceeded tome time, the moderator being called on to decide the point of order, ruled Prof. Sander's j motion out of order on the ground that thi being" new businett could not be received except through , me vommiitce on unit anu overtures. An appeal wa taken and the decision of the moderator re versed by a very decided majority. At tl o'clock, nftor several speeches from Mr. Perkins of thi city, Dr. Brainord, Mr. Mill. Mr. Dobie, Mr. Spencer, Ac, the motion to postpone the unfinished businett wnt put to vote and lost. Thit it no in-' dicntion of the feeling of the House on the Ne braska question, but only on the auhject of it' being introduced at thi point. ' ' ' Among the resolutions we tec, we copy tbe fol lowing of the Council Bluffs Association, an Asso ciation ou the very bordors of Nebraska. ' If the' clergy of that region will but tako intelligent and decided action, they will do much toward expelling' slavery from that region, , Wo find the resolution In the Council Bluff Bugle: 1. Res. That we regard tbe Tcuiooranco reform. a tho legitimate rotult of tbe direct application of Gospel prineiple to the improvement of society. .. 2. Rot. That the triumph of these principle demands the united effort of Christian, and that thi Association recommend the churches in their connection to mak a combined effort for the adop tion of a Maine Liquor Law at the next e.sion of our Legislature. SLAVERY. of is to be 1. Ret. That American Slavery It not only foul blot on our national character, which counter act the benign influence of our republicanism ia favcr of freedom in other land, but i also at war with our own freo institutions, and a moat formioV able obstacle to the success of the Gospel in our country. . .. 2. Res. That we as an Association cannot bo truo to the cause of Christ without actively and openly opposing this itupendou wrong. 3. Ret. That the reoent attempt to open Nebras ka to slavery and the movement in reference to) Cuba, both reveal the insatiable character, of sla very and call for renewed and more active effort on the part of the friendt of freedom for its entire, and final overthrow. A PxocLAMATtox. President Pierce ha issued a proclamation against Cuban Filibustering. What it means we aro not wise enough to under stand. Some of the paper eay it 1 a pretonc. That it is issued now, when there i no danger, a even flllibustert do not care to challenge the yellow fever at thi season of the year. Perhap to. Bu we should think he would core a little for appears; anoe with Cuba a with Massachusetts. But poor chance h thinks that weak and eorvile Spl more to be fearod than the aerviU north. At any rate one would thluk from the proclamation that he had most sacred regard for contract and fro in it, would never dream that it author had bear intriguelng for month, for th success of the No braska repudiation. !'.
