$l)c QVnti-SUDcry Bugle. SALEM, OHIO, JUIA'2, 1855. Ill IIfalth has provcnted our usual attention to the paper this week. SLAVE CASE IN ARKANSAS. The Von Buren Intolligcneer says that It has recently docidod by Judgo Kingo, of tlmt Stato, that slaves are not recognized as proporty by tho laws of the United States. The ta.no upon which Lie decision ii based is briefly this : "Two negroes had been convictod ol larceny in forcibly rescuing and taking away a slave woman from two gentleman In the Creek nation. A mo tion was made by counsel for the accused in arrost 'of judgment, on the ground that slaves wcro not known to the United States laws as property, Vhich motion was sustained by the Judgo, and 'consequently the negroes were turned loose "Another nogro indicted in the salno case, was also turned loose, a W prosequi boing entorcd in 'this case after the decision of tho Judgo had beon ' gi vprn "iiifl Intelligencer says that the decision is un doubtedly law, but it Is a bad state of affairs for those owning slaves in the Indian country ; bocause there is no law to prevent the stoaling of all the negroes in the Indian section, if mon aro disposod bo to do. Well dono for Judge Itingo, of Arkansas. Our ' dough-faced Nortliorn Fodoral Judges would doubt ' less kivo found somo method of making a different ''dtiiWion. Judge Kano, for inutnnco, who, as in tho Philadelphia case, could so promptly suggest to the less quick-witted prosecutors, that if the man could not bo hold for negro-stealing, ho might for porjury, or somo other crime. At all events, the men who trespassed on tho right of slavohold ing would not bo turned loose like those Arkansas nogroos. Theso two casos, laid sido by sido, for cibly suggest the doubt, whether slaveholders would be able to got along successfully with their slavcholding if they wero not helped out by the cunning and knavery of their willing Northern holpers. No indeed ; nevor would McLoan, Millor, Crier, Kane or Curtis make such a blunder as to play Into Oorrit Smith's and William Goodell's hands, as Judge Itingo has done. There is a plenty of the heart-rotted timbor left, out of which those Judges can bo mado, in Yaukoe doui. Had not the South bettor get her Judgos from thcro, as she docs her shoes and slavo-whips ? We can spare tho "stuff" without loss. Nay, wo hall be the richer fur it. Two Massachusetts Patriots. Gov. Gardner, of Massachusetts, seems not to have relinquished all intention of nullifying tho personal liberty bill, of that Stato. That bill rcquiros tho appointmont of a State Commissioner in each county, to enforce its provisions, and protect and defond any person claimed as a fugitive slavo. The Governor has soloctod for this purpose somo of the hunkers whose sympathy Cy the fugitive slavo law greatly preponderates. Two of this number have patriot ically doclincd the acceptance of the Governor's commission, assigning as their reason tho uncon etitutionality ot toe Massachusetts la, it is most fortunate for any fugitives who may chance to stray into the respective counties of theso two eminont patriots, that they aro so scrupulously conscientious in their nationality. Ouo of tlicm indeed, is a fugitive slavo commissioner. Southern Kicking. At a ratification meeting in Mansfield last week, Capt. Ford in ado a spcoch iu, which he said, " Let us spoak as a North should, and resolve that Slavery shall not bo rocognized except by tho municipal authorities of the States. The South will kick up ; will kick high ; but will nevor kick out of the traces ; she will always light back in her old tracks. Our country demands it. Our country, look at her." The Captain is right about the height and harm lossness of the kicking, if tho North will only "speak as a North should." lint sho fails to speak as she should, whon she says, Let slavery be recog nized by municipal or any other authority in the Union. More tiiax rouLD.uE expecteo. We learn from the Cincinnati Herald of Freedom that the Cincin nati City Council has performed a little act of jus tice hardly to be looked for in theso days of ne gro hatred and prejudice. Tho voto of a Mr. llcckly, of that city was refused last fall on account of his complexion. Mr. Bockly, determined to maintain his right of franchiso in the courts. He prosocutod tho Trustees of this ward and tho court decided him entitled to tho franchize as a citizen of Ohio. Subsequently says tho Herald, "tho Trustees of the ward applied to Council to reimburso them the money they had expandod in defending tho suit, and the costs which the courts has imposed on them, which request was complied with, Mr, Beokly now came forward and asked the Council to refund to hiui the money ho had expended in carrying on the' suit, ?22,08. Council very prop erly, undor the circumstances granted his prayer also." Minnesota is stirred most thoroughly with the Republican movement. Tho Territorial Conven tion was to have been held on the 25th iust. At two of their County Conventions, we noticed among tho resolutions one affirming the illegality of ahv very, and calling upon Congress to suppress it. Minnesota Republicanism seems boldor than somo of the article we have nearor home. Not Forgottex. Samuel D. Elliott, tho only Massachusetts man who voted for the Fugitive Slave Law o( 1850, was recontly nominated for the honorary degree of L. L. D. The Board Overseers of Harvard College, remombering tho infamy of Mr. Elliott's vote, have refused to con firm the nomination. Some of those Massachu setts Yankees have troublesome memories, as many . a doughface is beginning to find out. Mr. Elliott, it is said, receives his rojoction with Christian composure. Cassiis M. C:.ay and Frei Srtsca Taii-Mru-ant. Just as wa (0 to press, we learn that C. M. Clay and John G. Fee were heard attentively, and without disturbance, on Saturday lust at Scaffold Care. The Slave lioldcri of Rock Castle County have yielded before the courage of these men, and not even attempted to executo their throat that Mr. Fee should not again speak in the county. See what courage for the right will do. Anti-Slaver? Lectckes in Boston. Arrange ments have been mado for another course of anti slavery lectures in Boston the coming wintor. John G. Whittier is to write an anti-slavery poem for the course. Thomas Sroossa President of tho State Know Nothing Council, aits issued a circular to tho fra ternity, urging them to vote for Mr. Chase Governor. GOVERNOR REEDER'S MESSAGE. of The following is an extract fiotn Governor llccd or's McssftgD to the Kansas Legislature: "From this summary, tho length of which was been unavoidable, it appears that tho laws of the United States not inapplicable to our locality tho laws of the Territory of Indiana, made between the twenty-sixth of March, 1704, and tho third of March, lSOj, enacted for tho District of Louisiana tho laws of tho Territory of Louisiana the laws of tho Territory of Missouri tho common law, and tho law of the Province of Louisiana nt tho time of the rossion, except so far as the latter havo su perseded the former, still remain in forco in the Territory of Kansas. As the common law o a considerable extent was adopted for the Territory by Congress as lato os 1812, and by tho Missouri Legislature as lato as 1810, and as it is perhaps the most completo and comprehensive eyftotn in tho world, it lias, without doubt, superseded and sup plied a great amount of tho law previously exist ing. In tho mass of conflicting legislation, how ever, it will impose upon your courts much embar rassment and trouble to decide tho question of im plied repeal which will continually ariso, and I would therefore call your attention to tho necessity of curing this evil by some legislation which will declare distinctly which of these provious laws arc in forco and which aro not. The Slavery question is disposed of in tho fol lowing manner, "Thcro are many specific subjects of legislation, some of which aro expressly referred to you by the bill organizing our Territory, and others spring from tho necessities of our community. Promi nent among them is tho question whether we shall build our Government on tho basis of free or slave labor. Claiming ns wo do the samo capacity for-sclf-govcrnmcnt as our fellow citizens of the States with a far greater, if not an exclusive, interest in the institutions and laws which nro to exist among us: compelled alono to bear tlieir uunicns, ana cu titlcd alone to claim tlieir benefits; wisdom, justice and fairness would dictato that thoso laws and in stitutions insido of tho Constitution of tho United States should be moulded by ourselves, stimulated bv tho absorbing intorcst we must feel in them rathor than by tho representatives or citizens of other States who aro no moro competent to tho task than we who liave no stake with us in their re sults, and who would most indignantly repel any offor of reciprocity from us in assisting to manage thoir affairs. Tho provision of our Territorial Or ganic Act secures us this right, and is founded on tho truo doctrines of republicanism. It may be exercised in various decrees and in various ways, and whenever it is called into action it cannot le gitimately bo attended with that excitement which 19 UlClUt'flt IU 1.1U IlgllllllOM Ol UIU Bliivuijr hucomwii in tho direction of an attack upon constitutiqnni rights. An agitation of that kind, such as we havo seen industriously prosecuted in tho past historv of our country bv tho destructive spirit of abolitionism can never be productive of aught but evil, and is calculated m an eminent uegrco to obscure tho glories of tho pa9t to cvoko the foulest spirit of discord amons tho citizens of our common country, and also to mar our brilliant fu ture, it not to endanger the existence oi our cnr ished Union. A want of fidelity to the solemn compacts of tho constitution, and an attack upon the rights of the states, which are guarantceu uy it. can have no justification or excuse. This view of the caso, howovcr, is not to be confounded with tho discussiou ana settlement of the slavery ques tion iu our Territory, in its bearings upon tho for mation of our institutions. That has been refer red to us as an open question by the legitimate ac tion of tho nation, and horo it is not only the priv ilege but tho duly of every man to speak his opin ions freely and enforce them peaceably and fairly. Advocate and opponent stand on tho samo ground, and must mutually concede to each other tho iden tical measure of riirht which they claim for thom- solvcs. Freedom of opinion and freedom of dis cussion, without licentiousness, aro the very es- senco ot republicanism at all times, are peculiarly to bo respected hero. The permanent character and high authority of a State Constitution, and tho fact of Its submission to a direct voto of the people of the Territory, indicate that event as a signal occasion for tho decision of that peculiar nuestion. In tho mcantimo.howcver. a Territorial Legislature may undoubtedly act upon tho ques tion to a limited and partial extent, and may tem porarily prohibit, tolerato or rogulato slavery in the Territory, and in an absolute or modified form with all the forco and effect of any other legislative act, binding until repealed by tho sauio power that en acted it. The Kansas Legislature has promptly com menced tho work for which it was appointed, that of establishing slavery iu tho Territory. The fob lowing is a copy of one of its first acts. It was vetoed by tho Governor, but afterwards passed jver his head, thoy immediately adjourned to meet at tho Mission on the borders of Missouri, and thercforo convenient for the dictation which that stato will continue to offer through tho mock legisla ture to the peoplo of Kansas t "Srr T Until tlm seat of Government is located by law, the session of tho Legislative Assembly shall be held at tho "onawneo iuauuiu jjuuui School," in the Tcriitory of Kansas. "Sec. 2. Until tho scat of Government is loca te,! na nlmvn specified, tho Governor and Socretary of State shall respectively keep their offices at the Shawnee .Manual i,auor oouooi iu emu of Kansas. "Sec. So soon as this act shall take effect, the Council and House of Hcpresentivcs shall have power by a concurrent resolution, to adjourn its present session and hold the remainder of such aflstamn nt aniil Slmwnce Manual Labor School, and upon such adjournment, it shall bo tho duty of Governor and Secretary-of-State, rcspootivoly, im mediately to remove their offices to said Shawnee Manual Labor School. "This act to take effect from and aftor its pas sage." Among other acts was Jalo one to prevent the abduction of slaves. Mr. M. F. Conway, one of the members elect, of tho Legislature sent iu his resignation to tho Gov ernor, lie would uot by acting with that body give countcnanco to it, forced as it was upon the Territory by foreign arms and he assures the Governor that "as a citizon and a man. ho shall yiold no submission to this ulion Legislature. On the contrary, I am ready to set its assumed au thority at defiance ; and shall bo prompt to spurn and trample under my feet its insolent enactments whonevcr they conflict with my rights or inclina tions." The Kansas Legislature met atShawneo Mission on the 10th, inst., pursuant to adjournment. Mr. Marshall cavo notice of a bill, rcmiiring citizens emigrating from Massachusetts, and thoso other States which have annulled, or may nullify, the laws of the United States, to tako an oath support the laws of Kansas Territory. John Thomas Perry, of the Methodist Church, South.'was elected Chaplain, July, 17th. Mr. Marshall, of Pawnee District, introduced bill, providing that every mon who shall pay tho sum of ono dollar poll tax, and produco a receipt for the same to the judges of uny election, shall be a legal voter, provided such shall be citizens tho United Stutos, and shall have taken an oath support the Constitution of the United States, aud the act organizing the Territory of Kansas. Bill read first timo. Govornor Uoodcr has informed the Kansas Leg islature, that he does not recognise them longer a lecislature, and he declines meeting thorn at the Mission or removing moiuv moro uccurumg their instruction. for Seven slavos escaped from Pendleton county Va , a few nights ago, each oue taking a horse with hiui. They are doubtless making their way for Canada. A considerable number have run away from Pendleton and Hardy within year two, and some of thorn who are iu Canada- are the habit of coneupcuJins with their fueude Slavery. GOVERNOR REEDER'S MESSAGE. FREE SPEECH IN KENTUCKY-CASSIUS M. CLAY. Cnisius M. Clay has resolved, liko an undaunted hero ns ho Is, that ho and others who wish, shall behcaidon tho slavery question or bis tongue shall bo silenced in death. Rev. John G. Fee was some time sinco forcibly carried by a mob from one of his meetings. Mr. Clay and other heroic Ken luckians, havo resolved that Mr. Fee shall be hoard on the very place whero he was silenced. The government of Kentucky gives no protection to free spcoch, and Mr. Clny has gone armed for the unequal contest, with tho weapons or death. The following letter to tho Cincinnati Gazette, or tho 23d inst, was written on the ttvo of liis depar ture. Doubtful, he evidently was of tho result to himself personally, yet dauntless. LIBERTY OR DESPOTISM. July 19, 1855. Eus, Gazette : To-morrow I go to tho field of contest, to dctcrmino whether tho liberty of speoch and religious freedom is longer possible in a slave Stato 1 In this unequal 8t rugglo, ns the result cannot be foreseen, I deem it duo my own charac ter and tho groat issues pending, to say a parting word through a press whero suppression is impos sible. Born and bred in a slave State, every hour of my exporienco compels me to avow that the world has not yet begun to conceive the consistent Jesuitism and unfathomablo atrocity of tho slave propaganda! They who stand at the cradle, igno ring the holy sentiments which consccrato the pledges of devoted and mutual love, to cattclizc God's noblest work, and to stifle tho immortal as pirations of a human soul, arc not tho men to show magnanimity, or indulgo iu tho weakness of jus tice, mercy and truth I It is their vocation to dominate over the human mind, and to subject brute power to th& superior forco of intellect. Gentle, polished, and winning; stern, bullying and remorselessly cruel appealing at one time to tho sentiments, now to tho passions, and thetl to tho fears of men they must bo cun ning in fenco" indeed, who can stand up under such odds. No wonder then that thoy have taken possession of the press, the pulpit, and tho Govern mcnt, and that the boastod liberties of the Ameri can poople lie crushed and bleeding under their iron heel 1 But despotism is, under whatever name, everywhere the same; and its chief and last resort is force. To that has the slavo powor now come. Its organs threaten to drivo out tho new Congress with arms renewed violence swells on westward, and cannon and tho rifle, and the bow icknife, overthrow tho civil power; nnd despotism rules supremo in places of vauuted "popular sov ereignty," in tho groat prairios so often solemnly pledged to Liberty, to Civilization and to Chnsti amty. When Govornor Boeder is threatened with a halt er, and assaulted with intent to kill, the rep resentative of tho American sovereignty and Frank lin Pierce, who was very manly in summoning tho nation's power to tho re-capturo of a poor tremb ling fugitivo from BlaTcry, repudiates his own gov ernment and plunges the sword of justice into the heart of his own standard bearer, it cannot bo ex peeled that I should advance, unopposed tho van guard of tho "Republican" army in tho midst of its enemies. I seo now I havo long seen the meshes gathering around me. Let no man, there fore, too harshly reprove me if tho instincts of self-preservation have caused mo to cry out too wildly, for the composed ears of a self-deluding nation, against the ever onward march of Despo- tisinl When Douglas and Co. repealed tho Mis-1 to a of to souri Compromise, how could I refrain from de nouncing them as icortliy of death f Not from me comes the imprecation. I and mino will be forgot ten in the greater issues of this criino, and my voico will bo silenced amid the tears tho blood the woe which follow in its wake, and the lam entations of the widows and tho orphans, which it w ill have mado ! No, to all America tho timo has come Liberty or despotism I The Courier of Louisville found us quietly at our work it called upon its myrmidons to imitato tho doeds of Atchison and Douglas and String fellow: ready with pistol and bowie knife, they Bi- Imipa .Titlin (1 TVn llift fnirless m.arlvr Rniril. nf our party, in lteligion.

Mr. Fee sends his denial to tho Courier with the programnio of his action, laid down in tho annual report of tho American Mis sionary Society.

I know too well tho scoundrclism of that party to trust myself to their magnanimity. I flatter myself that my namo is placod boyond tho sphcro of ca lumny, and all my past history gives assurance that my friends may have causo to mourn my fate, but novcr my principles. I call your attention onco moro to my letter to tho Now York Tribune, ufter the Nebraska crime. I ask of you the favor of its re-publication. I am cheered that I find myself in sympathy with the great minds and horoio hearts of the Nation. Thank God for his foretasto of "tho good time coming." All hail, Ohio ! all hail, tho "North !" all hail, the ltepulliean Party! Go on; then, with tho sentiments of the 13th July inscribod on your banners July the 4th, and July the 13th; may they both be eras to bo ever re membered among men !

Standing here undor tho acknowl edged responsibilities of homo and country, which uo man can at will put off, I calmly look destiny, whatever it be, iu the faco, but living or dying, my aspiration bliu.ll bo immortal way our country yet be free. Your obedient servant, C. M. CLAY. w Tho following account of n previous meeting Mr. Clay'd, is from another correspondent, pub lished in the same numbor of the Gazotte : CASSIUS M. CLAY ON THE STUMP. MT. VERNON, Ky., July 2, 1855. or in in Coi.. Joiis8on Dear Sir: On Friday last I lis tened to one of the most remarkable as w ell as one of the most iullamatory speeches 1 ever heard. It had beeu published fur some time that V. M. Clay was to addiCES the people ut Biueh Creek mcetim? house, in this county, on the Kansas and Pt'ehrnsk.'t bill: nnd bavins it d sire to heir the ulijo"t discii'.sed. I wpiiI to hoar him but to my disappointment I hoard but little upon tho subject, it only being ulliided to by Mr. ('., in connection with the mob pr :eding (as ho termed tlimn) of the Alisioiiriniis, in tho latu election there; which seemed from tho vehement manner that bo spoke, as only done iu order to nrouso tho passion of his followers to put them in order to rcceivo what followed. Ho at onee took up the slavery question, mid uf ter depicting tho awful sinfulness of the institu tion; and its blighting iullucnco upon the Commu nity, and contrasting (in tho most deniagogueing manner) the most nourishing portions ut somo of the Freo States with some of tho most worn-out portions of Virginia and South Carolina, ho said that ho had come thoro that day to roll awny the groat stone that it need no moro bo nskod what their plan was for setting the negroes free; that their nmltu wu. freedom im lite suit ; that they were as much entitled to it ns any man or woman on that ground, and that the timo was close nt hand when those who contended for remuneration for their slaves would bo glad to get off even; for up on tho principlo of "doing unto others as they would havo others do unto them," tho nogro would have a right to ask for a remuneration for his ser vices. Ho denounced iu tho bitterest terms the old Democratic and Whig parties, find rmid they could not bo trusted, and as to the Know Nothing party, he gives it particular thunder; and seemed to have nif cotifidcnco in any but the Free Soil par ty, which he said was now in the ascendency; that their cause was now secure, nnd went on to show the strength of that party; and tho number of ne groes in the South over tho whites; which he said, in a contact, would ot course bo added to the rrec soil party, so that they had nothing to fear; that the time had now como to make n demonstration; aud ho for ouo was ready and willing to do his part. lie then spoke of tho treatment that John O. Fee had received at tho Dripping Spring, in Lincoln county : that they had applied to the court of jus tice lor redress and had been refused : and ho uow intended that Mr. Fee (should go to tho Dripping Spring one thcro speak Ins sentiments, as a tree man . and ho intended to go with him and stand y his sido ; and if any man, or set of mon took urn down, thev should walk over his dttittl e.irenss. Ho then called ou the crowd to know how many there was on the ground who would go with them, when a number of voices wero hoard that they wero ready and willing to go. Ho then told them to furnish their rilles, if they had any ; if no rifle, their double or single barrel shot guns, their Cult rovolvcrs and if they had neither, then their kitchen butcher knile, for the thing had to have a beginning, and it had as woll begin at the Dripping Spring as at any other place. Ho said that tho timo for tho moetina at tho Dripping Spring would bo set in a few days, of which they would havo duo notice; and then they would meet and consult, and they would not moot in a barn, out-houFC, or any secret plaeo, like the Know-Nothings, but in open day light, like freemen. Ho said that the pro-sla- vory party, both in word nnd action, give tho lie to the Declaration ol Independence, but ho would say, in the language of Patrick Henry "Oivo us liborty or give us death." Now, Mr. Editor, it cannot bo otherwise thaU ad mitted that Mr. Clay is a talented man, and it can not be otherwise than truo that ho is one of tho greatest demagogues in this couutry. Ho spoke most vehemently about the old parties, stilling the commou school system, stating that the perpetuity of this conntryjall depond on tho virtue and intel ligence ot the people, knowing at tho same time that ho and those who he sends out, in all instan ces, go whore thcro is tho least education, to arouso tho passions and prejudices of the poople with thoir treasonable doctrines.

Second Any shipping. Third Any city in fifteen minutes. I must say, judging from the experiments mado, these positions will bo sustained in field or. mar ino service. A six pounder was charged with powder and shell, and was fired at somo rocks at a suitable distance. Electricity could not bo moro sudden than was tho ignition upon rocks ; corrus cations of light aroso some fifteen feet in the air emanating from materials under the most intense ignition. It rained very hard, but notwithstand ing the rain it buvned on tho rocks twenty-five minutes and in various places on tho grass, which was exceedingly wet. Cheers upon cheers burst forth from the gazers wheu they saw tho flames bursting forth on tho bare rocks, covering an area of twenty square feet boforo tho sound of tho cau non reached tho cars, and too with a ininuure ball whoso weight when charged did not exceed nine pounds. Prof. Anderson has accomplished what many have attempted nnd failed. Sudden ignition of gunnery aud that from a cannon with perfect safe ty. He is warmly opposed to war, but considers tho More destructive the agonts usod the moro will they tend to lessen the chances of that great evil.

Suitable fortifications will be erected and a number of pioccs of artillery will bo em ployed. 1 candidly belicvo from what I have witnessed, that Sevastopol, or any other fortification must surrender whenever this agent is cinployod with suitable piceos of artillery.

Let all who feel an interest iu tho cause of Freedom strivo to be prosont. Tho platrorm of the Society is freo j and all who dosire to present their peculiar vews, or advocate tlieir particular plan of action for tho overthrow of Slavery, will be cordially welcome. In theso days, when tho Southorn Oligarchy is making its desperate moves, when tho Anti-Slavery sentiment ef the North is beginning to awaken, it becomes us all wisely to enquire in what manner we can render our efforts most availablo, and whether wo should not all unite our forces under the bannor of " Ao Union with Slaveholders."

NATIONAL ANTI-SLAVERY BAZAAR; TO BE HELD IN BOSTON, MASS., DURING THE CHRISTMAS WEEK OF 1855. This annual effort, having for its end the Aboli tion of American Slavery, has beeu so long befura the yes of the community that wa feel prolonged explanatiou in respect to it unnecessuiy. A very simple statement will bo sufficient Tor our purpose. CutitiiiroJ as u aid that Slavery Is a Rift flhd a eiinto everynbero and under all eiicumstahces, that all complicity or connivance with it implies moral guilt just in proportion to the extent of tho sanction given, that eousoiiueiitly all political and especially nil religious lellowship with ellcli tt syr teui of abominations is eminently criminal aud dangerous, it is our ondf nvnr to promulgate these' sentiments, so far as it may be iu. our power, throughout the wholu length uud breadth of tli4 land. We propose to do this through the medium ot Newspapers, Lecluieis and Tracts, und we call upon all Who Tear Cod or regard Man to givv us their sympathy itnd co-opCialloh. The coliiilly is stirred as it never yet has been, but ol , bow inad equately for tho accomplishment of the groat work that lies boforo it, and, in too many fuses, by what poor and insufficient molitesi Should American BlaH-ry bo abolished througli the force of moral potver, it nobler example will have been given to tho world than any previous ago has ever witnessed. It is in the Colonial po sessions uf Monarchial Governments that Slavery- uis been abolished. He are laboring for it ex tiucticti in tho midst of a great nation) where it U enwoVeii with every fibre of canunercill, political aud religious life, and where, with unimportant exceptions, every man is a voter. We do not allude to these facts with any discoui aging purpose, but only that wo may declare with convincing earnest ness the necessity there exists for the promulgation, not of any half-way testimonies or diluted doctrine, but Tor tho truth in its entire efficiency, "Without concealment and without compromise." This groat mission fho American Anti-Slavery Society alone discharges, and therefore we co-ope-rato with it. Her members refuse to be concerned in the administration of A govefhlhPht cemented with tho blood of slaves, or to recognize as churches of Christ the apostate ecclesiastical bodies of ouf country, who consider as goods and chattels per sotial, subject to all the fluctuations that mark oth er property, the souls for which they profess td believe Ho died. This is the Tteosoh and this the Infidelity that so convulses our country. Whether that country be destroyed or saved, we cheerfully lea! the character of the American Abolitionists to tho vordict of coming ages, believing that it will then appear that Loyalty consisted in adhesion tq Righteousness and Faith, in tho declaration that tho Altars of tho Lord wore not even as those of Moloch, We solicit correspondence, counsel and assistance from all friends of tho Slave, whether at homo or in Europe, and we pledge ourselves to employ most conscientiously whatever of influence or money may be committed to our hands, and to make faith ful account (or the same at the close of our under taking.
