TIIK ANTI-SLAVERY 1JUGLI2.
NEGROES IN COUNCIL---DANGER AHEAD. The Washington Star says Hint great excitement has been caused in tho city of magnificent dis tnncos, by the discovery of the fact that n number of colored people, most nf tliem frcn, and till til Rood character hud been delected holding a pri vate mooting, the principul objector which appears to have been to raise money t purehasd thu free dom of A young woman whom her owner was will ing to sell. Tho Star gives tho following account of thin torrihlo affair: Tho entiro party were, without ceremony, es corted to tho watch houso. They prevented tho spectacle not of a company of loafers, Lut appar ently gentcol colored men. Captain Birch read to thorn t!ii law which prohibits free or slave hi icks and mulattocs, from assembling unlawfully, or incotiiig in Fe rret; the smallest lino fur which is tivo dol lars. T'ho caj tain having asked them whether they liad anything to Buy, one of the blacks requested the examination ol certain books which ho placd on the desk, which consisted t-r the Holy Bible, Morals, and Lii'o tn Earnest. Among the privato papers was one in tho form of a "!-; nfinlt..H f..t tia mitiiliii .A i.f n uh.l'A woman mimpd Eliza Howard, tho value sot on her by her owner j lioing $050.

What despotism on earth will or daro excood ' meanness and oppression depicted above. Pico ( respectable persons benevolent person s for the moro assembling to cor.sumnto a most j praisoworthy object arc cither sent to the work-j house, publicly whipped, or fined. All this in tho capital of tnis 'Christian Republic," and un-, sanction of laws enacted by a Congress a nm- j jority of whom are residents of nominally free States. Neither Austria nor Russia, against whom I our Congressmen rant, can equal ;tho infamy nnd wickedness of this transaction. j Cuban Emancipation scorns not to bo a thing so near at hand as the New York papers last week represented. The niistake originated in an crrotie- ous translation of a singlo word in tho Spanish , Minister's speech. Such at least is tho report ! from Washington and Baltimore. May be, how ever, it is only in thoir wishes that the erroneous translation is to be found. Si.i Vi:'lul.lT",'i' Fast.

Parson Donnisoti meets with sympathy from bis follow slaveholders, a appears by the following from tho Louisville Journal: . Punuc Meeting at Jeffersontown. It will be ecn that the people of this county aro requested to moot in JoUorsontown on Monday next to consider the late outrago of tho Cincinnati court on the rightsof the Rev. Mr. Dennison of our city. We hope that the meeting will be large. Mr. I)en nison has been mast harshly treated. His ihive has been wrested from him by tho authorities ol Ohio, and he is now sued- for ten thousand dollar for -ausing the slave to be arrested, and moi likely ho will be sentem nd to pay it. His cause should bo adopted by Kentucky as her own cause Of this the Cincinnati Gazetto says: We should like to know in wh it tho Ohio courts havo been unjust to the Reverend gentleman. Our State courts declared Rosetta free, and the IT. S. Commissioner declared her free, nnd the Louisville Journal thought that the case was a dear one thai Rosetta was free. As for tho ten thousand dollars suit, it is tho first wo have heard of it. We guc-s the parties will compromise for a big per ccntage on that sum."

TEMPTATIONS OF OLD SHOES—JUSTICE TO JUDAS. The Boston Correspondent of the Anti-Slavery Standard gives (ouiij of the lut naws from tlmt city as follows : " I hcliovo that to-morrow is set down fir the beginning of the trials of thoso two notorious off enders. Benjamin 11. Curtis and Benjamin F. 1 1 ul lett, Thcrrt arc several indictments against them and different Judges will preside at tho several tri als. Judges Wendell Phillips, Theodoro Parker and Thomas W. IIig .Jrison, are among tho most prominent of tho magistrates under whoso auspices they will proceed. Tho unhappy culprits had bet ter fall into the clutches of Minos, Eictis and Hhadiitnanthus. Still, there is no doubt that they will have perfectly fair piny, nnd it is earnestly h ipcd that, justice may be done in tho premises. " n supposed that .Mr. Justice lliggitison will pro Seneca's side fit the opening trial. Various conjectures have been ventured ns to the motivo which could have induced so experienced a hand as the former of these malefactors to put himself in his present un happy predicament. Some think that ho was led into it by his confo 'crate, a villain of a robust type who hoped to finger yet more of the plunder of our common I'nelo Samuel, if he could implicate in his plot some ono who had some pretensions toi character left. But. it is generally believed, in ' . ... ... well-intormeu nnnrtcrs, that no was scluceu into . . the scrape by tho Impo of obtaining tho reversion of a pair of old shoes, on w hich ho hal set his lirart, now worn by ono Roger I). Taney, a Papist, resident in Baltimuio. It is perfectly notorious to .... . , . r , . n" wl,u "vo any knowledge of such matters, that the parties w ho will have the disposal t.f the said old shoes, after the present v oarer is dctio with them, would much sooner give them even to llal the left than to him. In fact, that it is a moral ini persons poss bility that he should even stand in them, un- der any circumstances. Vet, such is the blindness of this class of persons, that this Curtis, though by no means cither ignorant or stupid, has been lor years loilow ing a cnurso ot conduct nnu com der milling a scries of actions which must end in his shameful punishment, in tho vain hope of earning them. Let bis example be a warning to heedless 'youth how they set their nftcctions on tho havings. especially the old shoes, of their neighbors 1 It is but just to say however, that ho has shown s;,,,l8 f ompuuetiuu visiting, or, at least, fimie Hymptnms nf a sense of having made a blun jer K;nu0 ,t. ,,la brought himself within the clutch- c, f Justice. 1 hope it may be genuine repentance, llt (car ,i,llt ;t lnav nut bo moro effectual than that of Prior's Thief, Wlinpo llrpentuni'i1 wruM prnrrp rsvf lii baron ; 'Twuh uot lliut lie in iti'ik-ml, but Unit lie wim uki-ii." However this may be, he, or his friends for him, have been making superhuman efforts to excite sympathy for him and to turn the public sentiment in his favour. The Duity Alcrti.wr, in particular, has deployed its columns into line to cover his po sition, and has fired tons of metal of the heaviest description nt bis adversaries. 1 am afraid thai they have rather overdone their bur iucs and over argucd their client's cause. They certainly en dangered the lives of thoso friendly persons who ventured upon the task of encountering the deadly weight of the argument. But it is understood that the other criminal, Hallett, remains in the most hardened state tif mind, and is evidently resolved to die game. Indeed, he belongs to t nit class ol which Mr. Snake, in the School for Scandal, was u spei iincn, whose whole prosperity and hope depend on tho badness of their characters, and who beg any one who knows of their doing a good action by necident, not to do them tho injury of mention ing it. The following story which is going the rounds of tho Boston gossip, nnd which I have reason to believe is true, will illustrate the impen itent frame of this criminal's, mind and the way in j which he is genetally regarded. A prominent, member of the Boston Bar, meeting this unfortu nate man one day, said to him, "Well, Mr. llalh t . how do you feel about your Trials which are com ing on soon?" "O," replied Hallett, "I feel in ex cellent trim. Everything is going right. 1 know," he continued, "that people noiisj me and call me names. I.ut l uou t care lor mat! i near tuut i am calle 1 Judas, among other things! Let them call me Judas it doesn't distress me!"
