THE ANTI-SLAVERY. BUGLE.
CORRESPONDENCE FROM INDIANA. AflWor. ur.A, Stuben Co, Indiana, 1 March Bd. 18&&. J 7b A Editor of the tiuglt : flit en men est of description, necessarily given of Anti-Slavery la bor or on new ground hah of lute dbtered mo from inflicting communications cf tlill character a Don your render, hoping thereby to givD place . something more in conformity to tile tastes and demands of the people. But tthen t remember the oft-repeated tales, and trullmk that have fur centuries stood sentinel to gonitis and to wdrth, thrilling some new cord of being, by ever Varied Account, and still forever new, to fresh existences, and ever growing with recipient form and beauty, I find some slight npnlngy for saying "in a solemn way," the rery things you knew bofore. And first of all you should soe the pooplo of the far off west who brar in tl.cir relation to the ast, the poets personification of "the thirsty soul, panting for the cooling water-brooks" niado glad and trusting, by the practical demonstrations of rebellion to the slave power, from the pop ular vice of Massachusetts which hut a few months ago came hear extinguishing the flickering hopes of millions of the north, who hung upon Aer action, the des tiny of human freedom, the glory of the world. The election to the U. S. Senate of a man from among the people, a man of bone and musclo, and of healthy, visrortus consoience That little pisoda in Legislative Hall, where liberty in chains truck out a march, that slavery fifty strong could not docoy, or follow Those baskets of petitions, God speed their echo, frotrt tho Pilgrim land, n to the broad lakes and prairies of the west, wher ever freedom lives and Slavery hunts its crouching victims, with or without federal law. Ood save the widows and orphans from the Judge whose charity for a Slaveholder, fills heaven and earth with worse than widow's wails, or injured orphans aighs. The popular Anti-Slavery lecturer admin istered so well, and skillfully to New York and Boston, not in infinitesimal pills, that neither kill nor cure, but in broad ocean baths, with corres ponding friction, which Mrs. Stowe so beautifully tells, unfolded to the light of day, truths, hidden being, from the hearts of startled thousands. There are signs, of great significance to those, nd they are many, who are sure, that "something tint right no how" but have no definito idea of where the wrong can end, or right begin, or which side Up the world would be,if such a change should come. And here I cannot fail to notice that bold, wel- tome universal travclor tho New York Tribune, whose unwearied, dauntless footsteps we have traced alike to homes of affluence and want. Homes in the deep, dark forest. Cabins, where tho light of sun, and stars, 'enjoy thoir pristine freedom, mingling their lessons with that "weekly" orb whose revolution brings the light and warmth that bursts the clay-bound soil, and shoots its tender blade a living thing, to bud and blossom and to scatter golden seed, whose fruit shall heal the nations. The reports of those prime Anti-Slavery lectures of Phillips, Emerson and Parker, before the eas tern lyceums have been read, not only with avidity nd profoundest admiration, but with .enthusi astio hope and the deep, great heart of the people west, throbs out a loud response to freedom's pulses in the East, even though it be "no union with laveholding." Here are however a great number, "which no man can number" and when only greatness con' aists in this, who are "as much as over," opposed to agitation of this question, among which aro the Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian demonstra tions, of which this new country is prolific. I say this is their only greatness, because true greatnesg hat its foundation and validity in goodness. Rev. James Smylie of the Amity Presbytery Miss, in a pamphlet written in defence of Slave- holding alluding to the charges of Abolitionists, admits the facts adduced by them, but denies their criminality. He says if Slavery be a sin, and advertising and apprehending slaves with a view to restore them to their masters, is a direct Viola tion of the divine law, and if the buying and sell ing, and holding a slave or the sake of gain, is a heinous sin, and scandal, then vorily, iiree fourths of all the Episcopalians, Methodists, Baptists, and Presbyterians in eleven States of this union are of the Devil. And Bishop Soule iu debate before the General Conference of M. E. Church in 1844, ad mitting facts alledged of Slavery in the Methodist Church, but not their criminality, said "if Slavery be such an evil our only alternative is, the re-organization of the Church or withdrawal (Vomit, as soon as possible." As an apology for this great evil, Bishop Soule read an extract form the ad dress of the goneral superintendauts of the M. E. Church, at their last session in 1840, from which the following is an extract. "Can we at this eventful time,' render a better service to our coun try, than by laying aside all interference with re lations authorised and established by the civil laws, and applying ourselves wholly and faithfully to what pertains to our high and holy calling, to teach and enforce the moral obligations of the Gos pel, in application to all the duties growing out of all the relations in Socioty ? By a dilhgent devo" tion to this evangelical employment with a humble nud steadfast reliance upon the aid of divine in fluence, the number of 'believing masters,' and sor rants, may be constantly increased, tho kindest sentiments and affections cultivated, domestic bur dens lightened, mutual confidence cherished, and the peace and happiness' of society be promoted. While on the other haud, if past history affords us any correct rules of judgement, there is much cause to fear that the influence of our sacred office, ' if employed in interference with the relation it self, and consequently with the civil institutions of the country will rather tend to prevent, than to accomplish these desirable ends." To this docu ment said Bishop Soule (of which I have copied but part) I dosire that my name may be attached till I sleep in death. I desire to leave it as a legacy to my cbildrens children, even to the latest gener ation and if I could do it, I would leave it as legacy to the Church, as a rule of action on this subject, when I shall be no more. This doctrine of no interference "with the relation itself, ' Bishop Soule and other Bishops of the M. E. Church, first eliminated in the General Confer ence of 1836 in a resolution passed by that body, which reads, ''That they are decidedly opposed to Modern abolitionism, and, wholly disclaim any right, wish or intention to interfere in the civil and political relation between master and slave as ft exists in the Slaveholding States of this Union," has become the cherished inheritance of all the popular Churches in the land. A doctrine adop ted by the M. E. Church most especially Upon worldly policy alone, and not for want of knowl edge of iu true character. John Wesley the , father and founder of Methodism, said, more than sixty years ago of this "relation" toward which this expediency hat been adopted, that the Slave holder procured hit property in slaves, "by means nothing oear9 UBoctot as picking pockets, house breaking or robbing upon tho high way." They are J procured said he, "by a deliberate species of more complicated villainy, fraud, robbery, and murder than was ever practiced by Mohammedans or Pa gans." And jot, "to teach, and enforce tho moral obligations of tht Gospul," in application to all the duties, growing out of this "relation," will with the "aid of Divine influence" accomplish the desirable one's of the church namely, the increase in numbers of believing masters and servants. This doctrine was fully elaborated and carried out at tl.e least General Conference of this body held at Boston in 1853. A writer in the Western Chris tian Advocate, Cincinnati, of last month, says, in reference to to the Dogmn("as he terms it) of some of the Annual Conferences, who ask that Slave- holding shall become a test of membership, we understand too well the interests of the M. E. Church "to wreck upon Scylla to avoid Char rybdis." We have been meeting in this vicin'.ty most formidablo opposition from this Church, upon the ground that none of these things aro true, of her and that she is an Anti-Slavery Church, and arc threatened with a mob and the old "coat of mail" if we do not desist from further operations in this county, where, as said a minister of this demon stration a few Sabbaths sincc.we had, including Mr. and Mrs. Foster, thoroughly poisoned the senti ments of the people, and to a great extent destroy ed their confidence in their popular roliginn. We feel however quite secure, among the intel ligent, liberal, high smiled people of Angola, where wo have just held with Mr. Fust a very large and enthusiastic meeting, commencing Saturday evening and closing with much tho largest nudi enco at the fourth session, and shall go out again to our labor in this, and adjoining counties, fully strengthened by our past experience, and pres ent beliefs, that in this good cause. The martyr dom to day, brings victory to-morrow. In hope of success, Yours for truth, JOSEPHINE S. GRIFFING. FROM IOWA. PRAIRIE HOME, Benton Co., Iowa. Dear FniEND M.ans: I hastily take time to pen a lew lines to the readers of the Bugle: It does me good to let you know how tho world wags along with us, (as many suppose,) in this be nighted region. We have a beautiful country, with its boundless prairies, lying in a succession of waves, like the billows of tho ocean, and almost inexhaustible fer tility of soil, inviting tho farmer to come where he will bo richly repaid for his toil. Our soil is of a sandy loam, of from two to five feet in depth, and it is truly astunishing with what rapidity it shoots forth vegetation. I am confident things grow with half the amount of labor that they do in eastern Ohio. Bosides.the soil will stand tho drouth much better. We live noar Big Grovo, a body of 1,200 acres of as good timber as there is in the State, of a mixed varioty oak, black and white walnut, linn, cherry; and soft elin mostly very tall and straight Tho country is well watered, well adapted to stock raising, and especially Bheep, as our winters are not Wot as they aro in Ohio. We have not had rain enough since winter set in to catch a tub of rain water under the caves. And up to the 1st of January, we had the most beautiful winter weath er I ever saw, in fact, winter could hardly be said to have set in till after that time: Since then, it has been more cold and blustering, generally clear, hardly a day but what the sun has shone, have had but very little snow. The coldost day we had, the thermometer sunk to nineteen degrees below zero. It is surprising how the land has been taken tip for the last six months. Wo camo in July last, and entered on the outskirts, and now thoro is not a vacant quarter within ton miles of us, and houses aro springing up lik magic over tho prairie. But enough of the country. Methinks some one asks "What is the society like?" Why, it is composed of a mixed variety, like tho timber. But, bo it said to the credit of t'.ie place, there is (to my knowledge) but ono regular built, dyed-in-thc-wool old hunker in the place, and we have some hopes, however faint, of his re generation, as wo havo a dobating club in success ful operation, whero such old fogies are handled a withoumittens. We havo discussed some very good questions, among which was woman's rights, and as hunkcrish as this man is, he he hadn't tho courage to come out and npposo that much needed reform. It almost amounted to a lecture, and tho! subject wits handled in a mastorly manner by a Mr. Shults, a very radical reformer from tho State of New York. I am rejoiced that Mr. S. is hero. Would there were more like tiiiri. Ho Is destined to make his mark here. Our last question but one was, Resolved, that the signs of the times indicate a dissolution of the Union. It did me good to sec his earnest indignation of those peace-making and quiet-restoring compromises. Oh, how doubly I felt tho need of that gift that unfortunately I have not got a speaker. Yet I endeavored to show, as best I could, if the Union was worth the price paid for it. Our hunker was very sensitive as re gards that pink of villinny, the Fugitive Slave Law. lie didn't relish being made out worse than Judas. No indeed, this is not the most benighted place under the sun. Forty copies of the Tribune are taken at this office, which soon will pave tho way for something moro radical. There is a paper just started at Vinton, called tho Vinton Eaglo, that claims independence on all subjects. . Mr. Shults informed me he was going to disenss woman's rights through its columns, with a Mr. Dolfort, who has recently Come in with his family from Indiana. But I see I am running on to a greater length than I intended. Therefore I will stop right here, by saying that if anybody wants to come west to get them a good home in a healthy and prosperous country, tell them to come here ; especially if they possess liberality and are not conservative. Yours for Progression in the Far West. Feb. 21, 1855. M. BRANIN. Fdxiral HoNotts, of the most imposing charac ter were paid, in New York to tho murdered Pu gilist William Pool. He was a professional Pugil ist, and kept a grog shop and a gambling house, and yet New York turned out by thousands to honor him at bis burial. Large numbers of Know-Noth ings appeared in tbe procession, for the first time publicly designating themselves by wearing small strips of ribbons in their button holes. Pool was the bully of technical Amerioanisin and was thot by two foreigners. One a welchman by birth and the other an Irishman. This faot doubtless ac. counts in a great measure for the demonstration. But however aooounted for, it reveals a most cor rupt publio tentiment, wben notoriont leaders in vice and rriroc nre thus h0DnrcJ. PROSCRIPTION. Prejudice against colored porsons, pvf n in this oomltiunity is much greater than otio would infer. if he wcro guided in bis judgement by the char- acter Jtalem has abroad. 1 have lately mado somo observations, and much to my surprise, find many respectablo persons either actively engaged in the wofk of degrading the black or colored man, or silently coniving at or rather submitting to usages or customs the tendancy of which 1 1 to degrade and crush him, by fixing the law of inferior cast upon him, Tln.ro is not only no col jred pbrsons in either of the thrco great temperance orders.va Good Templers, Sons of Tcinporanco, or Temple of Honor, but thosoordors are opposed to admitting them, I wish to oxnmine briefly tho injustice of such a course In the first pluce, the black or col ored man has just tho saiuo natural rights, that we tho pale-faced, Anglo-Saxons have, and he, like us, is afflicted with the evils of intemperance. Hence it follows, that If God, the fountain from whom all good flows, hath constituted us his hum- bio missionaries for tho spread of tho p;opel of temperance, we should offer to nil the full benefit of our labors. Tho fact of being born in a different climate cannot effect natural rights. I believe that of one blood, God created all na uations of the earth, to dwell togothcr in peace. What right have I to ask a brother man who culls on metorholp in Ins need, whence lie came or what manner of man he is? Oh I H it not our duty to extend tho helping hand to all who suffer? I love the noblo sentiment of that wise and good man, William L.Garrison "my country is the world, my countrymen mankind." Haste the happy day when nil will acknowledge tho universality of man s natural rights ; when all wi;i acknowledge a common brotherhood, one just God the supreme ruler, and ever present. T. M. BENTLEY. UNIVERSALISTS IN MICHIGAN. BRIGHTON. Mich. March 7th. 1855. Mr. Editor: By attending Church Conventions, n which Anti-Slavery resolutions are discussed, many who now regard the churches as Anti Sla very, would bo convinced of their pro-slavery character, and not continue nny longer therein, that harmony might provail or grace abound. The following is a sketch of tho proceedings of the Universalis Association, hidden in Farniington, Mich., in Juno last. A resolution declaring that christians could not obey the requirements of the Fugitive Slavo La, Was rejected by the council. The Chairman spoko of thb great importance of harmony, and while manifesting considerable ardor himself, exhorted each and nil to keep cool, and make tho advancement of tho causo of Uni versalis!!! their great and leading object. A min ister npuko at great length in favor of yielding obedience to tlio Fugitivo Law. Christianity re quired it. No matter how bad a law was.it should . .. r be obeyed, oven t ioiifih it requiicatiie innSinRni .1.(1 innocent men. hen half a dozen such men had been hung, the law would bo repealed! A mem ber of the council thought a man should obey the law, lest he loso his property, and his family come to want. Another member of the council opposed tho resolution at its introduction, as an element of discord, and afterwards moved to amend the reso lution, by striking out the word Christian, inas much as all true Christians would obey all the laws of the land. This motion was lost. One minister spoke in favor of tho resolution, and an other wished to. but for want of tiino tho vote was taken without further discussion five voting for, and six against the resolution. Other resolutions of a similar character met a similar fate. A min ister begged that no ono would conclude that the Association was a pro-slavory body! They were anli-niavciy men, but opposed to demonstrations in the Church. Yes, the churches aro all filled with anti-slavery but it is a peculiar kind an anti-slavery that fellowships slaveholders as breth ren in tho Lord, who do not hold slaves for gain, but for tilt) good of souls, nud who, having availed thomselvcs of the means of grace, and joined the church, havo mado their calling and election sure. Such churches aro like tho old ladiy's beloved minister not quite equal to Christ, but fully equal to Anti-Christ. Yours with respect, O. ROBERTS. EMANCIPATION IN PERU. Peru has beon convulsed by a revolutionary war. The revolutionists have been successful. Casth.la, their leader, has signalized his success among other things, by proclaiming emancipation to slaves in the country, with tho promise of remuneration to the masters. This measure of Peruvian justico is soriously atfiicting to slaveholders and some of their North ern allies. The Journal of Commerce deplores it as follows i "All tho planters aro ruined. Tho losses of sotne approach f j00,000, besides tho futuro pro ducts of their plantations. Many families in Lima that wero impoverished by lormer wars, and that wero living by the labor of a few slaves that they retained, whom they permitted to labor on thoir own account, by paying their masters a small monthly stipend, are now reduced to absolute pov erty. At the samo timo, eatables have risen 50 per cent., and some still moro; white sugar, lump, is selling by retail at 16 emits, and other products of tho country iu pi opart oh. "Had tho iiianUmUsio.i of tho slaves been grad ual, say 10 percent, annually, nnd funds ready to pay for thein, it is not probable that any objection would have been made to stocking the plantations .nth othertaborers in the meantime, and the prices of products would not have risen. As it is, two or three millions moro will bo expended by the popu lation of Lima alone, yearly, fur the necessaries of lite. If the Government does not take some meas ures to ameliorate tho condition of the planters and consumers, it is much to bo feared that wn shall not enjoy peace for a great length of time." Let tuem do it. Says the Washington Sentinel: In the Next House of Representatives tho alio litionists will havo a majority. Should such vile and infamous propositions be mado; should the vote be takon ; tuiould that vote show a maiority for the incendiaries of whom wo havo spoken then, and we say it solemnly, wo would not an swer for the consequences. They would deserve, maiority though they be, to be drive from tde Hall of Legislation, as Cromwell drove the cor rupt men of his day from their scats in the Halls ot hnglisu Legislature. We should like to see some Southern Cromwell undertake that job. The north has no business in these halls in fellowship with slaveholders. And if she won't stay away from such evil company, or won't turn them out, liberty will bo served by her own expulsion.

A humane con sideration, truly patriarchal. " The Washington Purifier" is praised as a panacea for "obstinate surcs, arising from blows." This consideration ought to make it popular with the South. If the 3,500,000 slaves havo an average of only ono obsti nate sore each, it would require 3,500,000 plasters of tho " Washington" in ordor to euro them, nnd that alono would be a fortune. In the hope of being useful we make this notice, and shall charge nothing for advertising. 2Vi6une. fihSf The wheels of the Government in Indiana are blocked, the Legislature on whom devolved the duty ot electing state Ulticers, adjourned without doing it.
