FREDERICK DOUGLAS' SPEECH. We noticed last week the roccptton o( Mr. Dou glass' speech. The spoeoh is one delivered by Mr. Douglas in various places in the East dur ing the last winter, and provokod warm eulogy from some, and aovere criticism, from others, of his anti-slavery auditors. Its subjoct is "the Anti-Slavery movement," and it deals with its past history and its present con 'dition and prospects.' To say the least, tho author 'does the most ample justico to tha Anti-Slavery of tho past, while he dispnragos the movemontt of the present. Indeed tho speech has fixod in oar mind the impression, that Mr. Douglas dooms the movoment as conducted by existing -Anti-Slavery organizations, as but slightly, if at all -advantageous to the cause of freedom, and thut tho American Anti-Slavery Society is positively, Sn its opionions and measures, at war with the emancipation of the slave. Mr. Douglas as does William Qoodoll, month aftor month in the Ameri can Jubilee, charges that the American Society, has abandoned tho great idea of the emancipation of the slave, and is seeking the dissolution of tho XTnion, as its great primary object. They charge upon the disunionista that by socking tho dissolu tion of the Union they noccssarily abandon tho slave. Throw away the "Btaff of accomplishment," ;nd leave the slave to emancipate himself or die hopolossty in his chains. We shall enter into no defenco of the Ameri can Anti-Slavery Society. Its past history is bo fore the world, misrepresented it is true, as its presort friends are caluminatcd. But for the vindication, of tho Society and its members we quietly wait for that justice which tho future will bring, in tho mean time lealously prosecuting bur werk, according to the light that is in us. But wa must say that the tirst statement abovo referred to,i a misrepresentation i f fact. TheAmer- ican Socioty has never nbaudoned Ithe abolitiou of Slavery, immediate and utter, as its grand object towards which all its labors toud and for which all its efforts are exerted. So far as tho slave is concerned disunion fs only a means to an end. The Union us it now exists as it ever has existed is a crime against God and man and is therefore to be abolish 3d for its own sak. It is tho main pillar and prop of slavery and is therefore one step to be taken for tho utter overthrow of Slavery We are not now speaking of some imaginary Union, that is Anti-Slavery and is to result in emancipation, but of tho existing, worso than diabolical union, which now holds our millions of slaves in bonds, and has so held them lor two thirds of a century. Whatever Anti-Slavery tJoodell or Spooucr or anybody else can distill from the Constitution, tho fact is beforo us and all the world, that the Union has held, and does now hold the slave in his chains. Tho Union pledges security, and affords it too, to slave claimauts in tho possession of their slaves. It plolgos tho wholo north, as tho plan tation guard of the slaves. It keeps coustuntly ' pointed to the slaves heart every bayonet musket and caunon niuizlo. of the national army aud navy. A1 crushed Nat Turner and his heroic associates. It has crushed in embryo ten thou and efforts like it. Multitudes of stout hearts . ready to brave death and every danger arc in subjection, because of the uuion of freemen aud slaveholders against them. The Union constitutes the president, whether ho somes from Virginia or New Hampshiro, the prince of kidnappers. It has enacted and executed tho fugilivo slave laws of 1793 and 1SS50. But we need not, we cannot specify all tho support it has yielded the Bystcm. It has preserved and defended it wherever it touuu it in existence and extended it over an immense area, beforo consecrated to freedom by Ood and man. It is the suDoort of Slavery, and that Sla very may full.abolitiuuists bow their strength for its overthrow. 1 , i Mr. Douglass says "the Union under the con stitution requires mo to do nothing which is wrong." Very well. We have no ohjeotion to a union which, requires us to do nothing wrong, provided it also requires nothing foolish, and suici dal to great objects we seek. To us tlutre is xcrong in a union with slaveholders, under the constitu tion, and we will m none of it. WithGuodoll and Douglass tho Union scorns to have more than the negative virtue of "requiring no wrong ; it is a union for abolition ; and for opposing such a .union they decry and denounce the American . .Anti-Slavery Society and its friends. Now to our Vision, enlighteued by past experience and pres ent observation, such a union is in the first place an impracticability. Slavery and freedom are . KntuL'unisms. There never has teen a union be- o ! tween them; there never can bq. No more can there be between men controlled by these epposiug prin ciples. What would Messrs. Goouoll and Doug .las think of the practicability or wisdom of a mioa with persistent horso thieves to abolish ''horsestealing? What of the union of the pure with the purposely, persistent lecher, to abolish licentiousness. ' The very statement marks its glaring absurdity. . Is there any less absurdity in ' the proposed union of abolitionists with doter ' mined slave holders ? If a union is ever effected ' it must be by the sacrifice of one principle or the Other ; that slaveholders will sacrifice their cher ished priuciplos we have no expectation. The form of union may exist in the future as it has in - :the past, by the aid of hypoorioy on the port of -' the professed frionds of freedom, but in ho other '. way. What sort of a union is practicable, what I sort exists, what sort we seek to overthrow may be loarned by the present coollict in Kansas, by - all tile aggressions and extensions of Slavery, by all the ' humiliating debasement of the North, political and moral, past and present, and by all :, the sorrows, of the daily increatirg thoutands of ' slaves.! As therefore we love freedom and hate ' Slavery, as we seek for the establishment of the Jbrjner and the utter overthrow of the luttcr we say "No uuiou with Slaveholders.". THE CINCINNATI CONVENTION. Much to our regret, we wro unnblo to attend thtt Cincinnati Convention last week. Fur tho fol lowing notiuo wo arn indeed"! to Jnuies Uarnaby, who was present and participated in its proceed ings! Th? Antl-Slnvory Convention held last week at Cincinnati, a report of which occupies a largo por tion of this week's paper, was an Important one. Tho attendance, though not quilo so numerous as that of last year, was largo, and tho discussions chnrnclcruod by an earnestness and fidelity to freedom rarely surpassod. Tho principal speakers wore 9. W. Julian, of Indiana j Antoinctto L. Brown, Now Yorkj Win. Wells Brown, Mass.! Dr. W. II. Brisbane, now of Wisconsin, John Ran kin and others. Mr. Julian's. Opening address, and f.is speech of' Friday afternoon, condensed accounts of which may bo seen in tho report, were in tho right spirit and admirably suited to the occasion. Tho nrgul mont'ngainst the Know Nothing movement was as able nnd conclusive as it was appropriate to the timo nnd'eircumstanees. Wo trust ho will giro tho speech In full to tho public, as it was a perfect annihilation of every claim which is or can bo set up in favor of this very peculiar, and at proscnl somewhat popular movement. That persons pro fessing anti-slavery should ever have been misled by such a shallow political artifice, is to us a marvel. That with all its recent developments, thore aro yet professed abolitionists who sustain and defend it, does not at all diminish our wonder. Much regret was felt and expressed on account of the absenco of Samuel J. May and Wendell Phillips from tho Couvention. They were an. nounced in the bills ns 'expected, nnd many were anxious to meet them. Lucy Stone, who was also expected, was prevented by ill-hoalth from attend ing. Antoinotte.Brown" acquitted herself nobly, and Wm. Wells Brown, Dr. W. II. Brisbano and others Hddd much to the interest of tho Conven tion. Our friends, the Griffings, were in attend- atice; and by their noblo nnd chcoring songs of freedom and progress, gave life nnd joy to the proceedings. Upon the whole, this Convention has accomplished as much, perhaps more, for hu- humanity, than any proviously held; nnd we hope; tho noble spm.s who compose tho Anti-slavery Society of Cincinnati, will see to it that each ro turning spring shall bring with it An assemblage of face and noble men and women, such as came together thcro last week, nnd thut each succeeding Convention shall take higher ground nud nccom plish moro good than its predecessors. J. D. THE CUBAN QUESTION. The publick sentiment of Great Britain on tho Cuban question is as :t should be, in regard to the proposed stealing of Cuba by this Government. The robber proceedings of our government meri' and seem likely to receive the scorn of honest men tho world over. The British; pro s has reconily informed its readors of the stato of tho easo. The Leeds Mercury after giving the fucts and charac tcirsiug them as they deserve, ndds. Tho most serious aspect of this question is, that it may lead at some time to war between tho United Str.tcs and England and France. It' the former may and must seize Cuba, there' ure just the same reasons to be assigned why it may and must seize Jamaica and Guaduloupe on tho South, and Cana da on the North ; aud wo believe, therefore, that England and France would resist the sei.uro of Cuba, though they would not oppuse its salo by Spain. Somo of the pro-slavery papers of the United States contemplate this, and speculuto on the course of a war. They state truly that it would seriously injure the manufactures of England, and they are not bliid to the consequences that it would throw the Southern States out of cultivation, and cause land and slaves to lose their value, ns well as nearly annihilato the foreign eoinmerco of the Union. Herein is our best security against tin in sane nttack of the American Government on Cuba. Years may clnp6e beforo hostilities break out ; but as the stato and tendency of things nro serious, and as the p dicy of the Govornmout of the United States is now tirst made known in authentic docu ments, we have thought it due lo our readers to givo the above explanation. The Retort ov the Convention. Th5 Report of the Cincinnati Convention, is copied entire from the Cincinnati Gazette, except tho sketch of a part of Mr. Baruaby's speech, which at our request has been furnished us. Its fidelity to the anti slavery cause was probably thought too radical or perchance "fanatical" for tho eyos of its leaders. Tho read ers of tho Buglo will peruso it with pleasure REMOVAL OF JUDGE LORING. The Massachusetts Sonato has at length con curred with the resolution of tho House of Rep rescntatives for tho removal of Judgo Loring. The vote as recorded was 18 to 11. A resolution permitting him to resign, was lost by about tho samo vote. Governor Gardener it is said, "will un questionably comply with tho request of tho Leg islature. Thus has tho Anti-Slavery sentiment "of Massa chusetts extondod a most enoouraging rebuke to Northern subserviency, and kidnapping under the forms of law. Well done for Massachusetts. Well done for her Legislature. ANTI-SLAVERY TRACTS. A full supply of the tracts of the American Anti-Slavery Society havo been received by Joel!

Sir: Passing yestorday through your city of school-houso nnd plow-factory distinction, I was surprised to seo t her flag of stripes waiving over tho handsome edifice 'that rises so gracefully on the west hill. AVhat does that flag in that posi tion indicate IIs that house, built largely with the money ef Eastern Christians, a military depot a recruiting station an arsernal whero tho machinery- for wholesale slaughter, drums, fifes and bugles (not often heard in Iowa thus far) are kept?or is it put thcro to nnn mr.oj the now out-pouring of the war 'spirit, so rifo just no or; or, to toll us that pulpit-drum-eccleiiaslie is as hereto fore beat wilhjist instead of stick f or to make us know that Mexican annexationists, slave-compel ling martinets swaggering fillibusterers, and learn cd baptists in "mutual well-beseeming ranks march all one way?" AGRICOLA IN DOUBT. "Aamcoi.A in Doubt," is iuformed that the American flag which waves over tho Baptist Col lege, or did yesterday, simply indicated that it was examination day that it was not intended to give'that institution cither a political or mili tary character, but was simply intended to remind tho busy world of tho semi-annual exercises. For ourselves wo aro unablo to seo anything im proper in its use. Wo have indeed fallen upon evil times when tho use of tho "Star Spangled Banner," the emblem of our nationality, is to be a reproach. That flag generally floats" from the dome of the capitol when Congress is in scsson, and nkhough of latj something of a boar-gur-den tho capitol never has been used cither as n "military depot," "recruiting station," or an "arsenal." Whoever no may be, for "Agrio.ola" withhold his name, he will pleuso remember that around that flag, which is emblematic of our government and free institutions, cluster tho warmest and best affections of tho American heart. Around its stripes and stars, millions of freemen will, when occasion demands, rally with stout hearts nnd ready hands. It is appropriate any and every where whether floating abovo nur battlo ships, over our merchant navy on the Ocean, or above a seminary of learning where that intelligence in dustry and application is imparted so nccefsnry to au American Freeman.

Neanper, in his excellent history, iu speaking of Christian life in the first cen'uries, says of the mutual kindness of early Christians: "It was this, which, iu a cold and selfish ago, struck the Pagans with woudor to behold men of different countries, ranks, relations, stages of culture, so intimately bound togother to soo the stranger who camo to a city, and by his letter aod recogni tion made himself known to the Christians of the place, as a brother beyond suspicion, finding at once among those to whom he was personally un" known, all mnnncr of brotherly sympathy and protection.".

The con duct of tiie people of the North, and of many of tho -free iioujcs of this State, justifies the expul sion of every free wjrofrom this Statt." An argument for this infamous measure is pre sented to us ns follows: "And the hard working white man, who has been Contributing to tho maintenance of the laws, aud whom, therefore there is a moral obligation, on the pan of tho community to nrefor. will be j benefitted in tho increased w"ork and wages offor- ca nun. If this is the effect of taking away tho free ne groes, will it not also follow tho removal of the slaves? And if so, what poor man should hesi tate to boip, by t'.ll tba means in his power, the removal of both tha free negroes and slaves from the community iu whiub ho dwells; or, which is better, the emancipation of ail, that they may rcceivo full recompense for their Ir.bor, and thus na longer underwork hint 5;i the indiisll'ie.l pur suits? The appeal mf.do to "tho hard working white man," by this champion, of Slavery and oppressor uf freemen, if his poor white neigh bors can understand it, and are not afraid of the frown of their wealthy neighbors, must beget iu them a spirit hostilo to tho institution of Slavery, because of tho injury it does to them selves. "0, of course do not believe the slaves of Maryland are either vindicative or foolish enough to think of deeds of violence toward their owners, and wo earnestly trust they may never bo csci ted to bloodshed. Their emancipation is not to be cflected through such means. The slavos of tho whole country nro but four millions j nnd though their blasters aro but threo hundred thou sand, thoso musters have intelligence and wealth, and consequently power. The negro raco must do their best to acquire intelligence nnd wealth also, and, by tho in :egrity of their conduct, even under tho infliction of w rong, they must wiu the respect of their fellow men. Just views of human rights aro becoming hu;ve and moro general j throughout tho world, and are operating in lie-1 halt of the negro raco. Lponlhem devolves tne double duty of rightly appreciating thoso views, and sustaining them by the practical exemplifica tion of their improvement, under improved and improving circumstances. A goodly portion of tho colored raco in our free States are nobly performing this duty, nnd it is to them their less fortunate brethren should look for au encouraging example. L. Good ron Rosetta.

Work for tv good cause, be that cause popular or unpopular must be trwk to 1114 cm. Cui cndCrtacing, as radical political abolition ists, is to remove slavery from the national terriM riej by means of our national political power, and to remove it from tho States rilsd, by means 4 the same power, whenever the States shall them selves refuse to remove it. For the success Of this undertaking, wo must depend, under God, upoft ourselves. Of all tho political parties, thore is but ono to give Us countenance nnd that one Is, iu point of numbers, quits insignificant. The Whig and Democratic And Know-S"othin parties are each made up of iilavd hrldors, as w&fi as non slaveholders ; and hence, the condition df their continued existenco is, that they shall nol Attack slavery. Members there are, of each (St these parties : who aro opposed to slavery; Bui fur any ono of these parties to assail slavSrt would be to dissolve itself; TUB Free Stil of In dependent Democratic party !; we" chaerfUlly ad mit, nn nnti-slavery party. Nevertheless, it denies the rights of tho Federnl Government to touch slavery in the States ; nnd, sad to say, it tidrair!. the Constitutional authority of every slaveholder to elaim every State Government for his slave cath rison party; like ourselves, labors, within the lim er. the Amoriean Anti-tiavcry occieiy, or uar- i,s cf morftl sunsi-.sv t-3 Hbolit-h slavery ) but, un like Borsches; H employs no political pdwer to this end. What is still wrrse, it Seeks tt separate the' Freo States from the slave States; nnd to leave tlte slave States, so far as concerns the political powei1 of the free States, at perfect liberty to continue their oppression and torture of the black man.---Tho Liberty party is the only political party in' the land, that insists on the right and duty to.wieM the political power of the nKtlon Tot- the" overthrow of every part and parcel of American Slavery , That little party not only claim's that there is no law for slavery, and can be no law for thnt most sweeping of all piracios, but that the Federal Con stitution demands tho abolition of all American Slavery, State or national.
