NO MORE SLAVE STATES. A correspondent, whose communication inrep'.y to us wo publish to-day. says, " It is a mistake to suppose that the friends of freedom aro seeking to resturo the Missouri Compromise." That it is idle talk of restoring tho Missouri Compromise we fully agree ; but that many per sons p 'ofessing to bo " friends of freedom" have been proposing to restoro the Coinpromiso, and that somo of them still continue to propose it, ia known to all who read the newspapers. Our argument is, that if wo restore tho precise contract which has been broken we are as much bound to our part as tho other party are to theirs. Law and honor alike establish this. But the violation of tho contract by tho other party leaves us as frco as if tho contract had never bo"n made. What we mean is this : The bill establishing Kansas and Nebraska repealed the prohibition of siavory contained in a nrevicusenactment in relation to the same territory, i'ho prohibition thus repealed was generally under stood as a compact between tho slavo and free states, in consideration of tho observance of w hich by the former tho latter had agreed to admit certain other territory, to wit: a part of Texas ,as slave stites. Now the slave states have broken their faith. But we aro also released from every shadow of obligation to admit future slavo states. Let ns take this ground and maintain it. It gives us all wo want or ut least all that there is any possibil ity of our obtaining at present. If we go for this we do it with a good chaneo of success, wo arc not ot those who like to fight for what they do not want, w ith a certainty of being whipped.

Dr. Olds is denouncing the opponents of Shivery nnd the Nebraska bill as Abolitionists nnd Wooly Heads. Twenty years ago when the doctor was so indiscreet as to give way to one of the few honest impulses that ever actuated him, ho was au Aboli tionist himself, nnd was a conductor on tho under ground railroad, which had a station-house at his place. Ha is a Now-Knglander by birth, and it is as natural for a man born in that region to hate Slavery as it is for him to breathe. When ho first settled in this county he so forgot himself as to bo honest in the expression of his sentimenU upon this question. No doubt the ductor will vindicate himself from the chargo of abolitionism in his usual manner by saying, " If I ever was n Abo litionist I was a Whig when I bebnged to them." He said, two years (.go on the stump, " If I did burn my drug store to get the insurance money, which the Whigs charge me with, I was a Whig when I did it. If I stole $o00 out of a letter, which the Whigs chargo nio with, I was a Whig when I did it." Let Dr. Oids's southern friends understand that tho man who was instrumental ia procuring the passage of the Nebraska bill, and who now is a Pro-Slavery candidate fur Congress, was once a fierco Abolitionist, and a violator of the Act of Congress compelling the return of fugitivo slaves. It is iui ca-.v matter for Dr. Olds to be, not only on different ede of tho snino question nt different t in), home yearn ago, when be was a candidate f- r the Legislature, there ivs a lotij question be i'ure the people of thu country, the peujjlo east of the Scioto liiver being oppose! to tho- on the vest side of the river.

A ' in this village has received a statement of j the facts from Mr. Graham himself, which is sub- j s'.antially ns follows : Mr. G. ia a citizen of Treble Co., Ohio. lie wont to Cynthiana to introduce a patent plough of his invention. lie arrived in the place on Friday. On Monday somo of tho citizens informed him I that ho was suspected of being there on some other than his ostensible business; that a man of j 1. f 1. . 1 il- 1 .1 1. il.

Mr. G., in reply, M' roneous, nnd that he would leave, as they proposed, on tho noon train. As the hour for departure approached, Mr. G. took his plough upon a wheelbarrow, and started ., ' . ,,' . , . uwi int. uwpvu ju n cm i i iov,u ij uijij, Limb ut; was followed by a crowd, several of whom carried baskets of addled eggs, with which they pelted him. Seme of the crowd crying "egg him '" some "stono bun !" somo "tar and feather him !" others still, "drown him !" After thus threatening and expending their egs, they blacked his face. Their demeanor was such as to create alarm for his life, and at bis request, tho Judgo of the court, then in session, had him committed to prison. Whilo there, several persons came in to identify him ns tho man, whoso regard for liberty had pre viously given them offence. They undertook to justify themselves by attempting to prove his guilt. A epocimen, probably, of tho justice they motoout to thoir slaves. In this they wero unsuccessful. Nono of tho nion introduced would affirm that he was the man, and no proof was offered of his al leged conferenco with tho slaves. In short, they tound that, tating counsel ot their cowardice, they had outraged and abused a stranger, guiltless of the charges alleged against him. To justify them selves boforo the world. Tho Cynthiana papers trumped up the statements of the case which were widely circulated over tho country. After this, ho was released from prison, compelled to shoulder his plough, and was thus inarched by the mob to the ears. Such, in substance, are tho facta contained in tho letter of Mr. Graham to our friend.. Mr. Gra ham, wo should think, could pretty accurately cs- t;lnato tlio value of this Union for the protection of personal property and iudividunl rights. So far as appears from any of the statements, ho dlrt;J not even profess to be an abolitionist a char acter so abhorred and feared by tho craven hearted slaveholders.

A corscs pondont of tho Philadelphia Register writes that two slaves from Alabama havo taken shelter among tho Indians of Florida, and Billy Bowlegs refuses to surrender them. The U.

It was expected that a rescue of Billy's negroes would bo attempted, and if so, tho troops were determined to give the Indians no quarters. CONSTITUTIOXAL GUARANTEES. TllO Wcllsvillo Patriot interprets the U. S. Constitution very liber, ally for the slaveholders. Speaking of tho Cleve land Herald's condemnation of the Salem rescue, which wo have published, says: Tho language of the Herald is a little warm, but it will bo endorsed by many who have the indepen dence, in these latter days, to acknowledge that the Southerner, as well as the Northerner, has certain rights guaranteed to h:in by the Constitution of the United .States, nnd by the very nature of tho compact which binds us together as one great fam ily.'' Will tho Patriot put its finger on the articlo nnd section of the L'. S Constitution, which authorizes slaveholding in Ohio, under tlio circumstances of the Salem case? Tho Patriot is famous for busi ness puffs and local paragraphs, but it has need to mend it Constitutional knowledge, if this is a fair specimen. "StNB us Lecturers.

The recent rescue, from Slavery, of Abby Kelly Salem, tho interesting protege of tho Western Anti- Slavery Society, nnd" tho consequent excitomontof the public mind thereby, induces nio to suppose that some reminiscences of similar transactions in our past history, with tlio judicial proceedings and decisions to which they led, may provo both inter esting and profitable at tho present juncture It is rumored tho managers of tho Ohio and Pennsyl vania Railwny wax wrathful at tho interference with tho convenience of their passengers, when so trifling a stake as human liberty is the only occa sion. The pro-slavery portion of our own commu nity too are to be heard expressing regret that thoso humane men and women who did the deed, had not been shot down in their tracks, by dozens and scores, so dear to their hearts aro the inter ests of slavery. It is not to bo prcsumod that southern slaveholders, flushed with their easy and frequent victories over the craven masses of the North, and backed as they know themselves to bo by tho presence of such a party among us will yield without further struggle the claim they sot up, of a right to profane Ohio soil with the presence of thoir degraded victims, in defiance of our laws. Nor is it to bo expected a soulless niniwilifillf 1 1 Lr n A 1?iiltanT nnimnmllon la-ill r. vt-iri-it any obstacle to their designs, at least until experience shall prove to thein tho transpor tation of such merchandise will not. pay tho cost. As little is it to bo expected t';.o friends of freedom will hesitate to employ nil tho means within thoir power to reloaso th.e captivo, when ever opportunity is nflbrdci, and henco ns the collissions may probably lie not infrcquont, thero is some importanco in 'understanding just what our legal position is, in respoct to this subjoct. To assist in throwing boiiio light upon it I propose in a few number of the Uuglo to relato some portion of the patt exporienco of abolitionists in Ohio. And this seems to bo of moro consequence from the fact that the judicial decisions alluded to have been mado so long since' that a largo portion of those now nctivo in tho Anti-Slavcry field are pro bably not informed of them. About the year 1830 a gang of ton slaves were being driven by ono man, though tho Southern portion of the Slate of Ohio, who all succeeded in ! escaping. An intelligent freo colored man o" Springboro Warren county was tho principal agent in affecting thoir escape, although as it was nocos sary to conceal thein for near a month boforo they could safely be sturtod for Canada, sovoral others afterwards participated. As tho parties implicated wero never discovered no decision of the question wns then hnd by tho courts. Up" to the year 1840 it was customary with emigrant from Virginia to Missouri, of whom there were largo numbers, to to p".ss through that routo whenever a low stage of water in tho Ohio prevented them from taking boats, conveying by waggons their household goods, nnd negroes. Karly in No' ember 1839, Bonnet Raines, of Virginia, attempted this modo of emigration, carrying with him four negroes. They were observed and followed, and nftor much pains and stratagem employed, tho ncgroos wero ascertained to be slaves. A party of white nnd colored men assembled whoro they had pitched their tents for tho night, near Franklin in Warron Co. Ohio. As soou as tho purposes of the visitors becaino known, the males of tho Virginian's party threatened violence, nnd produced their guns. They were quietly informed they wero not in Vir ginia, but Ohio, and subject to her laws, nnd thcro fote tho less they snid about shooting the better for themselves, which suffised to hush up all further thrcatcnings towards tho whites, although from habit, perhaps, they could not avoid persisting in indulging them towards tho colored persons of the party. Mcnntiine tho women hnd driven the slaves, two adult females and two children within tho tent, nnd refused to allow them to be spoken to. Perhaps nn hour and n half was consumed in ef forts to obtain an interview between tho two par ties of colored persons, which when effected, resul ted in the w omen ngrccing to leave, with their new friends, nnd they entered voluntarily a carriage provided for the purpose. Ono of tho children, a boy of three years of nge, was found to bo mis sing and after a long renrch was disevcred tightly clasped in tho arms of a young woman (like Abby in those of her affectionate caretaker) nnd covered closely in n bed. Ho was wrencbod from hor arms by the uso of somo force, mid dclivored over to his mother. The cniriagc drove off to a well known depot on tho underground road, a conductor on w hich took them still further tho enme night, to a neighborhood which wns unsuspected. The Vir ginians entered tho town of Franklin proclaiming tho loss of their human property, nnd to obtain additional sympathy alleged they bad been robbed also of $500, in gold, and $1000, in Bank paper, nil contained in n tin box. The whole town and neighborhood being desperately pro-slavery, of course the excitement became intense, and tho usual mob-spirit was developed. No concealment of person or residence had been attempted, or desired, and several of thoso implicated wero soon arrested, and bound over to answer for their con duct at court. The moboerats not satisfied with this organised a band of forty men to lynch tho individ ual most obnoxious to them, nnd who was aocusod of stealing the money. As they were -2 miles distant from his residence, their scheme was frus trated by an expression of sentiment by a fow, w ho though not abolitionists wero yet unwilling, tho person and property of 11 noighbor should thus be attacked. For several weeks however tho fami ly was compelled to vacate their home at night to secure their safety. Tho rescuo of these four innocent victims from tho horrors of Slavery, wa9 most vehemently condemned by at least eighth tenths of the population, nnd the wish frequently, nnd uneq uivocnlly expressed, that all concerned in it might be sent to tho penitentiary of tho State, and this where nn unusual proportion of tho peo ple bclorged to the two branches of the Quaker Church. . The Grand jury of the county of Warren found two indictments against the parties. One, 011 tho chargo of stealing the money, for grand larceny. The other, containing numerous counts, charged a riot, and misdemeanor, und in scandalous sub serviency to tho slavo power, indicted the accused, for a breach of the laws of Virginia, and also of the laws of Missouri, by acts done on Ohio Soil ! ! So bitter and exci tod was tho condition of publio sentiment, that a jury of men who had not formed and expressed an opinion in tho case was with great difficulty obtained. As an illustration of tho feeling exhibited, 0110 individual when called up and asked the usual questions, replied " yes, and it is that every damned abolitionist in the Stato should have his throat cut." " You may go Sir" was tho weak response of the presiding judge to this insult to tho court and to justice. Tho prose cuting attorney, in his anxiety to procure a con viction of Bomo sort, refused-to allow the indict ment for larceny to bo tried first, as bo foresaw tho testimony produced upou this would react in favor of the prisoners, on the other charges. Elev en white and threo colored men, wero convicted of a riot, upon tho testimony adduced. Tho trial for larceny then commenced, but the perjury of tho prosecuting witnesses was so manifest, their con tradictions of themselves and of each other so glaring, the jury with scurco any deliberation re turned a verdict of not guilty, on this charge, anxious as all parties had shown themselves to sustain it. And here permit the remnrk that my attention having been called to it nt that time, I huvo never sinco known a trial for freedom, where tho slaveholders and slave-catchers have shown tho least hesitation in perjuring themselves. And w hat bettor had we to expect from men and women whose moral sense is so blunted as to permit them to sustain the relation of Slaveholders? Although hardly prepared to say that every existing slave holder would thus porjuro himself, if tempted, I am as littlo prepared to expect to find many excep tions. Aud I believe the rule will be found inva riable, that any ono who will enter the courts to enslave, or re-enslave a fellow being, or to punish an abolitionist, will never be found scrupling to forswear himself. On this point I ask the observa tion and experience of others. An incident in this trial is worth relating to show tho influ.enco of slavery upon tho oppressors them-selvo-j; whilst the Virginian matron was giving '" h te8tllnny. was asked what State she was from. With some hesitation she renliad" I don't know. Why, the state of Uockingham.!' Thia was during the exciting political campaign of 1840, nnd Mr. R. C. Schonck, lato miniator ta Brazil who was one of the defendants counsel; immediately queried as if speaking to. himself "Stato of Rockingham ? I wonder if: that state goes for old Tip and Tyler too." Tho sentence passed upon the. rioters woro five days imprisonment upon bread and water in the dungoon, and fines varying from fiyo to twenty dol lars. Tho Supremo Court, then in session in Cin cinnati, allowed a writ of error, and at the end of 48 hours tho prisoners wore discharged, to await; its adjudication of the caso. What that was, its do oissiou nnd the relation of somo other - attempts at the rescuo of Slaves before it was finally made, I must kavo for another paper. A BROOKE. Marlborough, Sept. 7th.
