THE ANTI-SLAVEUY HUGLK.
A CLERICAL DOCUMENT. . Our readers will be Amused by the perusal of the following following curious manifesto issued hj the Rer. Henry M. Donnison who Was so un fertunato a to loose his property recently by the 'tfeoiaion of Judge Jameson of Columbus. After . the girl had been placed In the hands of her gur dian, Mr. Donnison arrived In Columbus nnd made sm Imperative demand of bis property. Mr Van Slyke, lior guardian politely declined it compli ance. Then bis Revorence went back to the Neil uouae ana issued me following address! "To a candid and honest public." We omit the first part of the document which is (biographical, largely detailing tho affection of Rosetta to "Miss Alice" her mistress and the oc casion ot her being caught in a place eo fatal to lave holding as Columbus proved to be. Proceed ing with this topic, he says of bis friend who had ithe girl in custody: . "He thought by stopping in Columbus, where he had once resided, and yet has many friends, he might avoid observation, cloistered under i what should be the sacred roof of a privato mim ily. But alas I in the merciless and marauding t course of abolitionism, no "man's house is bis ens ile," and black Women were soon seen hovering about the house like birds of illomen, and pres ently the Slioriff of the county appeared with n habeas corpus, and by eo infamous a prostitution cf that writ of prictlecs value to a true Ameri- can, and in spito of her asseverations that she did not want to be Tree, but wished to return nor parents and "iittio ucssio," the poor girl was forced away from her protector, on the Sabbath day, and lodged in jail. Tho next morn ing she was brought beforo a court, and with n nioekory of a trial, before time was allowed for the attempt even to defend both her and her rights guaranteed by the constitution to every citizen of .i.tT. ir.. . . . . . no uniieu suites, sue was declared tree, and, be ing a minor, was put under a guardian, lest she should exercise lier liberty in returning to her parents, and this when Almighty God hns made me her guardian, as I have over been her best earthly friend. And now, after this simple statement of facts, appeal to my fellow-countrymen of Columl us and Ohio, to pudge between me and these mom tealing Abolitionists. Who are the friends of this Eoor child f Who is it likoly is most attached to er true interests, her master, or those who are now, it is to be hoped, ashamed of thmr mean ness in depriving as honest) and good a citizen as themselves of the humble friend of his dead wife, and the faithful attendant of his innocent ohild, thus calling in tho majestic sanctions of the lw to give a color of respectability to an action that should sink its perpetrators to the lowest lev el of the contempt ol every ingenious and upright mind J Who have sought really this girl's freedom anil levation in society, those who in defiance of nil right have placed the ward of another under a guardian (forsooth) who is put over her to watch with ly nx-eyos lest, ia obedience to every impulse, he should make uso of her freedom to return borne a guardianship from which, when she merges, she can never raise above the servility of your, hewers of wood and drawers of wu' err or I, who designed to grant her most earnest wishes in making her the fund companion and cherished dependent of a beloved child f Judge, I pray you who sought her happiness, he who whs restoring her So the home of childhood nnd the arms f her parents, to her brothers and sisters, or the kidnappers who havo barbarously forced her from tae society ot all she loved forever?

When tho Ten Commandments forbid tho coveting and stealing pf a neighbor's servant, nnd book of Leviticus en joined it upon the Jews to purchase their "bonds men of the hoathen around them, who should be their heritage forever," and the now Testament repeatedly enjoins upon slaves to be obedient to their masters in aM things," have not those same men .defied the injunctions of Holy writ, and pro n a iced the Biblo a forgery, and God, if ho sanc tioned suoh things, a tyrant ? ' I appeal to you, fellow citizens, to know if all these statements are not truth mil thn T ask you if you will continue, through your Leg islatures and your administrators of justice, to permit, in default of your strenuous opposition, so dire a stigma to rest upon tho noble, and manly, and virtuous pnplution of the North from the actions of theso deluded men, and these . nnwhipped miscreants? If you persist in this supineness I speak it not ns a threat, but in all mournfulness, like a prophecy of Cassan andra bo assured a day of retribution will come. Xou or your children ici see this Republic di vided and its borders devasted by perpetual war. uorn iikb yourselves upoa tree soil, I have spent ui my mannooa among Southern men, i and I knuw that every instance of tamnerinir with the institution of slavery alienates somo truo .uw-ieu piimoi irom thai union which our fat li mn cemented with their blood. I know that perrsonal rights are dearer to the people of the duuiu man ma uarren giory derived Irom a union With strangers, from which too many already thiuk they have nothing to gain and much to lose. And I k now'that this growing dissatisfaction is confined to no one class of men, but that it is shar ed in by the vicious and virtuous, the rich and the . poor, the cultivated and the ignorant; thnt it is found among professional men nnd mochanics, godless wordlings and devout Christians, lawyers and merchant, and clergyman, and judges, nnd legislators ot the state and ledernl government. The adherence of slaveholders to their rights of person and property, is still stronger than all their political preferences or combinations, whether as Whigs, Democrats or Know-Xothings, or even us ckiiens of ti e United Stater, but if through Incessant machinations agninBt theso rights, pat tnetism itself should give way to tho galling sense f wrongs nnd oppressions, tbo Union may perish: but its blood will rest upon those men and their children who could, but did not crush this hydra beaded fanaticism of a portion of their own mini ver by the omnipotence of the ballot-box. The . tHs of a' dissolution of the Union are incalcu'a bls. The farewell address of him, the Father of 'tis Country, and ths far seeing vision of that great ipounderof the Constitution, the late Chief Jus tics Ptory, hare portpysd but half it horrors.

Editoii: Tho Snlcm Division of tho Sons of Tcmpcrnnco is not, it appears, so disloynl to the rul ing influences of church nnd state, in our fice count-y, is to admit persons even slightly colored, to a participa tion in the manifold benefits and blessings of the order. Recently a colored man, respected and esteemed by all who know him intelligent, morsl and In every respcet worthy of confidence and fellowship, was, upon oppli .. , , .,, . . ,, cation, excluded from this Division, solely on account of the fact that some of his ancestors msny generations ago, lived peaceful livoi in Afticnj instead nf (like his anglo-saxon forefathers) prowling nhnut in hordes half starved and raked, and robbing nnd butchering each other, in thj woods of ancient Britain. The people of Memphis ought to know that if Salem th'rf, by accident, rescue a slave girl from tho cars, we are not yet so far gone as to do any thing to protect fugitive slavesagsinst tho temptations that luro men to drunkenness, crime and trie gallows. It is claimed that tho National and Ornnd Divisions have forbidden the admission of colored persons to the order. Why then are colored men admitted to so many subordinate Divisions? Why ia tho 'Pure Fountain,' the only one from whence they are driven ? Intelligent members say thoro is nothing forbidding subordinate Divisions to admit them. It is a frco will offering to the hunkcrism, meanness and brutality, that sluvcry engenders, and church nnd state sustain. Our most influential ministers, and somo of our best citizens are members of the "Pure Fountain" Division. Are these persons going to countenance this proceed ing, giving aid and encouragement to tho pro-slavery feeling so rife, in the land? If not, let them set them selves in a right position. If to let the people know it Y. Z. NEW SCHOOL GENERAL ASSEMBLY. Rev. Samuel II. Cox, D. D., has recently been in St. Louis lecturing nnd preaching. By bis evan gelical toadyism, he has secured quite a breeze of popularity. Ho seems determined that it shall con tinue to fan him, if submission to slavery can se cure its continuance. The next General Assembly of tho New School Presbyterian Church is to meet in St. Louis. And Mr. Cox sends to tbo churches, through tbo New York Evangelist tho following instruction, relative to the delegates to the Assem ble Slaveholders and their ecclesiastical allies at the north mtinngo admirably. They convene their Assembly where all its actions shall bo under slave holding surveillance, and then this famous Rabbi sends forth his instructions to send up just the men who, from deficiency in consciunco or moral courage, shall givo neither trouble or uneasiness to their masters. Tho work in which Dr. Cox i engaged is quite as infamousin character, nnd will prove far worse in its inllucnco than that of his Itcv. Brother, Dcnnison, who is endeavoring to kidnap a frco woman by tho aid of the U. S. Com missionor and Murtbal. Dr. Cox says : " Tho people bore are expecting the General As sembly, next May, with increasing interest and siitisfai tion, It ought to bo anticipated by all our l rosbyteries with large-hcartc! mid appropriate wisdom. I hey will certainly no great good or, great harm, by meeting nt St. Louis. Tho reasons are many and mighty. Of this 1 would ulfuution atnly warn all tho Presbyteries. If a Presbytery has any member in it that is only goodish and weak-minded; impulsive, nnd not otnll compre hensive, or well experienced, or rightly informed ; or, it ho bo par.i'uu, emotional, ami destitute ot knowlcdgo and good manners ; or, if bo be a tlic- irizer, an al stractioniit, or a philosopher of one idea; or, if obstiuato, or unanimous in sclfcstecni 1 1 I v : then I snv. fur thn snlcn ol' nil thn emls ilmt Paul would pu-sueand prefer, or which the winlaitt ! that is piofilubte to direct would inspire, give him I an impartial turlotigli to stay nt home; and consult his honour anil usefulness and fanio and peace, l y putting a wiso man, instead of buu, ns a Commis sioner to tho (icucrnl Assembly of 1805 Sonic may despiso this counsel still I soberly give it, loving the Church nt largo and our own branch of it in particular and loving also ninny dear breth ren who diucr Irom me, possibly, in these things. I do not want to seo tho General AssembW net at II out of character, or against the Constitution, or in any with no or with little wisdom. And this city is full of noblc-mindoil nnd principled persons who will watch them ; and tako impressions for after ages from what they see, and hear, nnd feel, of tho wisdom of tho Assembly. Our dear breth ren in the ministry here, good and true, nro much interested, nil of them.to show tho otucllcnce alone of truth and order, in all the collective snd indi vidual actions of our beloved Assembly. Other wise, we shall only injure them, nnd counteract our own prayers, through our prepastcrous Heal, that is not aecordtna to knowledge. I mean, ns ev ery reader knows, in reference to tho matter of sla very ; hut NOT AT AM. OS TU AT ALONE. Let all the pastors and all the churchos pray that tho Holy liliost may fill all the members with the window that cometh from ahove; and thon nil will be right. Ibis is the epitome ot all my prayer for them, to i. n . ii i . i' .1.- ro i. n- ,. . ... tho Oreat Head of tho Church. Wo havo some en eniics beside tho devil and his anarh : somo that ought to be at better business! and some whose titles, offices, and places, might make the simple ton oasuy mistake them tor trends, iscd. sap. sal. verb. et. preelerea-nun-nihil." We infer, from this voice of warning, thnt the managers of the New School Presbyterian Church are fearful that the "volcano," which they "cap pod " w ith so much difficulty somo years ago, is about to burst forth again and bury them in its fiery eructations. They have taken caro that the General Assembly, at this crisis, shall meet in a slaveholding city, where a foul moral ntmosphoro will aid them to smother the spirit, of freedom nnd choko the utterance of tlioso who dosire to cure Iho Church of hor deadly leprosy. Wo snail see how well they succeed. Tub Wiit Spirit in Conoress The lata Con gress has dono its utmost to cultivate tho war spirit among tho peoplo. They elevated General Scott to a Lieutenant Generalship, to tako rank nnd pay for the same from the timo of ono of his vic tories in the Mexican War, thus presenting him with .re know not how many thousands of dollars. It also passed the Bounty Land Law, which gives. ICO acres of tho publiu lands to anybody and ev erybody who has been in nny way connected vith the military service of the United States since 1700. Or, in case of thoir death, tho same to bo conferred upon thoir widows nnd minor children. It is estimated that fifty millions of acres of land have been given away by Congress, to honor and foster the Bpir t of war among us. This seed, thus sown, will not fail to bring foi tli its fruit, in nn increase of tho military spirit among us in the toleration by the peoplo of tho onlargomcnt of the national War Departments in future war and violence. Why military men should be honored aoovo all others who profoss to love their country, we do not know. To us there would have seemed muuh more propriety In bestowing it upon landless farmers, who would have rendorsd it produc tive, and thus bare Imreucd ths wealth of tho nation. LET THE UNION GO. If there is but oni way to preervo nnd that in mnko you and ni'i sl.ive tho Union. why then let the Union perish rather than our freedom. Such was tlin reply of Mr. Chaso 'at Rochester N. Y. to the suggestion thnt if nnti. slavery meas ures were adopted tho South voulj dissolve the Union. And fitting was the reply. Yes lot the Union go, if to maintain it requires that wo should bo slaves. EvAS-GF.t.rcAt.

Slaves Imported from South Carolina nnd Vir ginia. For sale by J. M. E. SHARP, jati3 tl' 103 Gravior stroet, Now Orleans. " Imported from South Carolina and Virginia!" Why not imported from Congo and Guinea? Cm any one tell us why the importation of slaves from Congo to Louisana should bo a crimo ranked wilh piracy nnd punishable with death, while tho m portation ol'slavcs from i irgmia is publicly adver tised in the japers? In every respect the African trade is less evil. The .-laves who am for sale in the ports of Congo are savage mid heathens, cruel- '' treated, am: liable at any moment to violent arc unquestionably benefited by "eatli. They being transported to ChrNtia.i and civilized Amer ica, even to such Christianity and civilization ns prevail in tho South. Hut a slave transported irom the tcinperato and healthy climate, the com paratively high civilization of Virginia, to tho sul try and unwholesome ctnclicbls, the sevcro toil and the half-civilized society of tho South-west.is griev ously injured. His condition is mado worso in stead of better. Sa far, therefore, as tho argument drawn from tiie real or fopposed welfaro of the slave is concerned, tho African trade has the nd vantago of tho American. So fur!' i ij. t is con cerned, they are 'both equally evil. Tim Congo slaveholder has just as much light to sell his slaves as tho Virginia slave-holder has to sell his. Per haps more. For thu Congo gentleman docs not proless to be a Christian and a democrat, and bis practice is not inconsistent with his princitdes. Boston Teleyruph RUTLAND, MARCH 26. lion! S. S.
