Saturday 31st. The motion to arrest the U. S. Marshal end Par 'aen Dennieon, waa argued before Judge Parker. Mr. Chaiie eontanded that the responsea of those Individuals a welt at thoir whole course of con duct, showed a deliberate attempt to violate the rder of the court. ' The Marshal responded by the admission of the eehare of Rosctta after her delivery to Mr. Van 8lyk, and justified himself on the ground thnt he was but executing bia office as U. S. Marshal.

Aftor argument from lawyora on both - aides, Judge Walker said in conclusion i "A great doal has been said about comity tut that was a reciprocal matter and to use an tld ad ago, "what was sauce for the goose was sauce for the gnndor." He sur posed it would be claimed the United States was the gander and Ohio the goose. (Laughter.) But our State ewes no more comity to the United States than Ahey do to us and ought not to owe so much, fur Uf we trcnoh on the fodcral power, a remedy is ''provided to arraign the Sovereign State at that :brj but we cannot bung asp the United States in ' the same way.

"Judge Parker announced the docision would be rendered on Monday morning. MONDAY, APRIL 2D. Judge Parker dismissed the case for contempt gainst Marshal Robinson and Rev. Dennison. lie decided that the re-arrost of the marshal was not a contempt, inasmuch as the order of the court was fully executed previous to the last arrest. 'The act of the Marshal though not a contompt was illegal and subjected him to the penalties of the law for false imprisonment. In the afternoon Judge Parker heard the.anawcr of the marshal to the second writ of Habeas Cor. pus, which was, that be would not produce the body of Rosetta. For this contempt Judgo Parker sentenced him to pay a fine of fifty dollars and be imprisoned till the order to produce the girl was 'Complied with. The marshal was imprisoned but immediately released on a writ of Habeas Corpus iisued by Judge McLean of the U. S. Court. This -question involves the propriety of Judge Parkers' interference in the case or in other words the su premacy of the U. S. (Commissioner's court, over TUESDAY, APRIL 3D. Commissioner Pendory decidod ROSETTA -REE. She was immediately delivered to her .guardian Mr. Van Slyke. He decided that ns she .was brought here by her master, that act emanci pated her and she could not be claimed under the fugitive slave act. The Anti-Slavery Bugle. SALEM, OHIO. APRIL 7, 1855. .- ' To Corrksi-onuents. We are obliged to our old friends " C. L. M." and the author of "Homely Graphs," for their contributions to our miscellany. The sad tones of the latter, this week are prompt ed by the sorrows of her own stricken heart. She has our deepest sympathy. Civcin-vati Excitement. Well mnv Cincinnati and the whole North be excited, at the super de 'moniac efforts of the kidnapping priest to enslave for life the helpless girl Rosetta. To consumnte this result, which it makes ono shudder to think of, Lr. 3. Senator Pugh is his willing accomplice. A professed advocate of stato sovereignty, with de liberate insult to the people of Ohio, be advocates in open court the judicial supremacy of a kidnap ping commissioner above all the judicial organiza tions of the State. A mercenary wretch he must be, who, for the gold which tho kidnapping priest or marshal could offer, would thus betray the liberties and rcpu.ation of his State, which had .just honored him with her highest gift, and that toe (or the eonsumation of so terrible a crime, as 'the enslavement of a free, helpless and innocent girl. . , The people of Ohio can in this case see, with out possibility of mistake, something of the price of rendering one poor child to bondage. The cleri cal ruffian cannot recover his claimed chattel, with ' out the contemptuous overthrow of the whole State judiciary. All right of all persons must go un- ftrntAntivt from nafiiMil Ainent At. tlin nleaniirA nf I 1 r - - the usurping federal court or the inquisitorial protection of slave-catching Commissioners. W" W give a large space this week to the details of this case, which we have abridged from the Gazette. We could give our readers nothing of . more absorbing interest or greater moment. ... Jpoc Parker. The course of Judge Parker in the important Cincinnati case has been straight forward, firm and manly. So far as we can judge, le has.shrunk from no responsibility, discharging 'his duties in a manner creditable to himself, to the .Court, and to the State. . We should be glad to lay before our readers bis excellent decision on the first writ of Habeas Corpus, but our limited apace for. ' In the course of that docision, speaking of the alleged right of the master to transit through our State with bis slave, be aaya: "We once thought that; the courtesy due from one State of this Union to another,, would require of the free States to grant to tbeir brothren of the South the right of transit with this, as well as other descriptions of property, in going from one portion to another of: our common eountry. Subsequent reflection, how ever, nd the most careful study of this case that our time would permit, has satisfied ua of our error. .. . The emphatic declaration of our Constitution, " There shall be no slavery in this State," stands as an insurmountable barrior to the extension of auoh courtesy. The moment a slave, with the consent of his master, or in his company, breathea the air of Ohio, bia remaining with that waster becomes dependent upon bia own f.a-w,v,u,.;:. , u Biuoarai Yovita baa net yet been succeeded as -., Severs 11th.' Rush R. Sloan'.-We learned lately Irom ft friond who has been active in collecting funds to defray in pari, the fines and costs imposed on Messrs. Sloano, Booth and Ryecraft, that her efforts wore checked by the report which had gained currency in her neighborhood, that these Cues have been ro mitied. We wish to contradict such a report, especially in Mr. Sloane's case, which has received less of publio attention nnd aid than that of Mr. Booth. We learn from good authority, that he has paid over $3000, the fines and costs in the ense; and thnt only between $400, and $200 dollars have been subscribed, (and that not all paid) by friends for his relief. This affair should itfet be suffered to pass off In this manner. Times, as everybody says, are hard. But louder would be the complaints much great er the cause for them, if nil abolitionists had had their pockets picked by kidnappers as has Mr. Sloane. We hope our friond will send on immedi ately, the funds', tho result of her solicitations, nnd that othors will imitate her example and send on their own nnd their neighbor's contributions to lighton the.losa of Mr. S. in this matter. Mr. Sloane's residenco is Sandusky city. A. T. Foss. Mr. Fuss, of New Hampshire, has spent some six months past in Michigan, and Indiana, as the agent of the American Anti-Slavery Socioty. His labors have been every where joyfully welcomed and highly commended, by the friends of the cause, and have eminently advanced l.s interest wherever they have been be stowed. The peoplo of Salem and its vicinity will have an opportunity of listening to Mr. Foss on Senday afternoon and evening next. We hope, tbw to aeo tho Town Hall crowded with listeners. Hkaltiit Rules. Speaking of the present union between England nnd the despota of France and Austria, the N. Y. Tribune says: " Those healthy ru.les which are good for an in dividual, are equally (rood for a nation. The hon est citizen will not form a partnership with the reckless gambler. Well said. "Those Wealthy rules " are good not only to indicate nnd regulnto the union ol individ uals and nations, but for aught we can see, they are equally applicable to the union of States in the same government, oar own for instance. What faith can any one have in tho unnatural and incon gruous union between slavery and liberty in this government. The Tribune sees clearly tho hope lessness and unnaturalness of such a union between nations and between individuals. Why docs it so perseveringly maintain and defend our national Union which so unequivocally seta at naught all healthful laws of association. Our national ex perience has surely not failed to show the sad re results of the attempt of tho friends of freedom to consort with tho desperate, reckless despots of southern plantations. And evidently, the Union cannot last. Liberty must bo crucified, and well nigh has it been, or slavery annihilated. NEW YORK LEGISLATURE AND THE FUGITIVE SLAVE. The New York Legislature has before it a bill for the security of personal liberty, with especial referoncc to tho claim of slave-holdors for tho re turn of fugitive slaves. It will throw serious ob stacles in tho way of slave hunters. Yet it is radically defective in that it recognizes tho right of slave catching or slavo rendition, under any cir cumstances or forms of law. The denial of this outrageous claim should be made outright nnd unequivocally, and no forms of law thrown around tho enormity in any manner. When this is done, and we shall stand on this question, where the Brit ish nation nnd its provinces now stand, we elm!! be free from responsibility in this matter. Until then New York will not be guiltless, even though she enacts as law and executes the bill before her legislature of which tho following is a synopsis: Sec. 1. Secures the writ of habeas corpus and make it tho doty of tho District Attorneys of the several counties to appear as counsel for the ul ledacd fujjitive. 2. Gives trial by Jury, nnd makes the finding of the jury conclusive. 3. Punishes tho seizure, or intendnd seizuro of any person as a fugitive slave, who is not n fugitive, by a lino of not less than 2,000, nnd im prisonment iitho State Prison not less than five years. 4. Forbids tho use of all jails or other public buildings belonging to the Stato for the confine ment of alleged fugitives, except pending the pro ceedings on a writ of hiilieas corfms, and punishes any keeper of ueh biiihMngs who shall permit such confinement by n fine of $500 dollars and two years' imprisonment. 5. Prohibits nil State officers from assisting in the enpture of fugitive slaves under penalty of a forfeiture of office and being ever after ineligible to any office or emolument under the laws of the State. 6. Prohibits, in a similar way, the State militia from any interference in such cases. 7. Repeals a conflicting law. 8. Provivcs certain pclalties for State officers who may prefer to act in obedience to the United States laws. 0. Provides for the expenses under this act. 10. The act to go into effect immediately. New En-gland Nok-Rbsistaxck Society". This Society held a convention at Worcester Mass., on Saturday and Sunday the 24ih and 25th of last month. It seems to have been a spirited and in teresting meeting at which Adin Ballou presided. A long series of resolutions were adopted expres sive nf radical peace principles and making ap plication of those principles to various usages of Society. Kansas. Reports from Independeuce.Mo., state that tho pro-slavery party in Kansas were entirely successful at the late elections, that probably not a single anti-slavery man has been returned to the legislature that the editor of the Kansas Free State was ducked in a pond by a mob in conse quence of a speech he had made. This result was brought about by the Missouri interlopers, who were camped by thousands in the territory at the timo of the election. Probable Emancipation in Cuba. The last ar rival from Europe brings intelligence of a most in teresting and important dobate in the Cortes, at Madrid, on tho 8th of March. The Captain Gen eral recommends the limitation of the slave trade. But the Spanish community and the Cortes seem inclined to go further, and abolish the whole sys tem as their surest defense against American filli bustora. A Maine Law baa been passed by the Nebraska Legislature. All the women and a large majority of the men of the Territory petitioned for it. The late Czar was a devouror .of such newspa pera as represented the independence and intelli- euce of the communities where they were pro uced.

Tho toward for well-doing has bcn,ao wisely arranged that l.o whu per forms his duty has no tioed of the encomiums of his fellows, but In editing the Bugle you are ao much of a representative of nbolitbtoHtt, thnt, as one of your constituents, I feel like expressing to you my henrty approval of your criticisms upon Mr. Oidding's course In Congress. I thank you also for the Unassuming and the kindly tenor of your reply to his letter to jou, nnd'for the promi nence in which you place th idea of the neces sity there is of scanning closely the acts of men, irrespective of their motives. After.tho mnny evi dences his life has afforded it would bo alf'urd, as well as unjust, to doubt that Joshua R. Ciddings most ettrtiestly desires rndlabors lor the entire abolition of Slavery; but whether he adopts the effectual means to do so, nd refrains from every act which necessarily strengthens nnd perpetuates its existence, is quito another question. So of tli' mother who casts her first born into tho Ganges in the belief bIib is securing its best'interests, ns well as her own, we canot doubt the purity of tho mo' tive, yet we fell no less certainty of tho mistake committed by the act. In what text of the Chris tians' creed does nny one find it written that when inquisition shnll be.mnde for the deeds done in the body, difference will be made between those done by the man, und those by the legislator. Ilmve'long felt surprise that among flit many whose love of Liberty is only a little less than their veneration for the constitution, nnd Union, in the Free Soil or Republican pnrty, that no one should bo found prcpnred to wage war upon Slavery in the States, by every natural and fair construction of certain portions of the Constitution of the Uni ted States. Tho first clause of the eighth section of tho first article nf that instrument, expressly confers'upon Congress ,'power to "lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defence and general wolfare of the United States" ic. Now if a pro fessed abolitionist chooses to swear to support the document, one would naturally expect he would seek in it every possible weans uf nssniling sla very, and hcio it is furnished to his hand, for how better could he provide for the common defence, or promoto the general welfare, than by securing freedom to every inhabitant. I have seen Madison quoted, I know not how correctly, ns nverring that this clauso does confer power over the subject upon Congress, and John Q. Adams wo Well remember taught that in case of War it does so. Practically, the Constitution of the United States is just what the pro-slavery community choose to havo it in any given locality. If anti-slavery legislators are bound to submit it to tho influence wrought by those portions dosignod to promote slavery, are they not equally bound to seize upon, and employ efficiently, those portions which may be made sub servient to liberty. Would nny but a cowardly spirit keep men ever on the defensive, when the means of aggression lie within their reach, in n warfare they deem not 'only jusiilionblo but praise worthy. They will tell us such a policy could originnto only in a latitudinarinn construction of tho constitution. Then comes tho question what right have they to unhold an instrument which will only achieve liberty for nil boneath its juris diction, by a forced construction, or will they tell us tho slave-owners would not submit to such a construction, and to attempt it would produce a dissolution of the Union. This is only to say in other words that tho union of these States is pre ferable to tho freedom of their imhnbitants, in the opinion of those who urge it, and thus they forfeit, I think, their lluim to be reckoned abolitionisis. Another occasion for operating against Slavery in the States might bo sought in the fourth soction of the fourth Article, which declares that "tho United States shall guarantee to every State of this Union a republican form of government." When pro fessed abolitionists shall be as earnest in the sup port of liberty within tho government, ns pro-slavery men nro in support of Slavery, and when they shall study as diligently tho means it affords thorn of assailing slavery, ns they now do those portions which restrict their anti-slavery efforts, it seems likely we shall witness the inauguration of i new pclicy, and ono of less questionable fidelity to Liberty. It can never be effectual only so far as it assists towards the overthrow of the goVcrn- ment,but it will bo more consistent with antisluvery professions than tho one they have thus far pur sued. At the present, tho boldest of their politi cians are content with essaying to icpel what they emcem to be tho aggressions of Slavery, uncon stitutionally mado, nnd when they speak of the system as it exists within the States it is with abated breath nnd each faint expression of devotion to hu man freedom is smothered by their more ardent pro' fessions of fidelity to tho Constitution. Whilst this state of things continues tho slave power will be adroit enough to keep them provided withldistnnt outposts upon which to expend their zeifl, and courage, tha t oppression nnd tyrnnny may reign secure nnd undisturbed within constitutional lim its. Yours ever. A. BROOK. Marlboro, April 2nd. MEETING AT ANGOLA, INDIANA. Wt find the following notice of a meeting held at Angola, Steuben county, Indiana, by Mr. Foss and thcGriffings, in an Angola paper. Pursuant to previous appointment, a meeting of the citizens of Stubcn County, Indiana was held at the Court House in Angola on the evening IStli iust. for the purpose of discussing the charactor of the prevailing religion of the United States. Dr. Johu H. Moore, was callol to the chair, and Asa M. Tinker chisen Secretary. The audience was then favored with a song by Mr. & Mrs. Qriff- ing of Columbiana oounty, Ohio after the conclu sion of which Mr. Grilling introduced tho follow ing Resolution, viz f Resolved, That the Religion of this land as de veloped in tho teachings and practice of its lead ing denominations, in relation to the rights of man and a just reverence for God, is a manifestation of the most dangerous form of Infidelity and the bold est blasphemy against God that has ever cursed the world, the Infidelity of France duriug the revolution in koj not excepted. Jesse M. Gale, Esq., alsd introduced the following Resolutions, via : Resolved, That the appointment of an Anti-Slavery meeting in tbis house last Sunday, at ball past two o'clock in the afternoon, was no infringe ment ot the right ot the Methodist Quarterly .Meet ing in session, at the time the appointment was maae ; iccn"so according to the appointments thoy had published for the day, the house was to be vacant during the whole time needed tor the Ann Slavery Meeting, nnd the fact that the Muthodi.-i Quarterly Meeting was closed for the day at half past one o clock l. sj., am) the house remaining vacant until the timo of the evening meeting, is positive proof of the propriety of using itot was proposed, lor the anti-slavery meeting. . Resolved, Therefore that the prevention of the use of this house for said meeting waa a gross vio late p oi the right ot n tree pnapio t- free speech nnd free discussion, dishonorable aliku to th Methodist Episcopal Church, and those who aided thorn in louking the door of the Court House ngslnst a rsspecuble ported ff the oititens of this county, who needed its urt ft tfrnt time to vindi cate the right of speech and for ifre correction of erroneous impressions which had that day been mado against them. Rev. A. T. Foss, of New Hampshire, Mr. and Mrs. Griffing of Ohio, and others addressed the meeting ably in support of the Resolutions, show ing the intimate connection of the Church with the institution of American Slavery, nnd that it had " no just reverence for Ood." The speakers also dwelt on tho charaoter of the revolution in Franco in 1789, showing that it was a necessary result of the oppression of the people of that coun try, by tho chute!1!', and producing amplo docu mentnry evidotico from the church itself to sustain their positions. The epeakers, also denounced the notion of the Methodist Quarterly meeting held in this place on the Sunday previous, in depriving the abolitionists of the use of the Court Room, for the purpose of holding a meeting after it ahould have been vacated by tho quarterly meeting in the afternoon of that day, and vindicated the course persued by Messrs. Foss and Oriffing on thnt oc casion. Invitation waa extended te those who wished to oppose the resolutions, ti take ft part in the discussidh, but no one accepted it. Vote being taken on their passage, they were adopted with but few disenting voices. On motion Resolved, that the proceedings of tbis meeting bo published in the Hoosier Banner. Tho audience were then favored with a song, by Mr. ond Mrs. Griffing, after which on motion the meet ing ndjourntd. It may be proper here, to add, that a goodly number of citizens of the county v.cre present. and manifested a deep interest in the proceedings of tho meeting. J. U. MOORE, Chai rmao. A. M.
