THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE.
From the Liberator. INVIDIOUS DISTINCTIONS. Now and then, thoro are thoso who profess to ckerleh great respect r.nd a warm regard Tor us personally, but little or none f.ir such toil-worn la borer In the Anti-Slavery vincymd ns Parker PlLLRBCRT, STEPHEN 8. FofTF.R, MaRIUS II. UllDIN- on, (editor of the Ohio Anti-Slarcry Bugle.) and the like. With tho warm personal friendship we cherish for the Utter the absolute confidence we have in their integrity of soul and disinterested neti of purpose wo can tolerate no such distinc tion, for a moment. Nothing has occurred to war1 tant tuch a line of demarcation. Wo ore proud f their friendship, and hold them to be worthy of universal respect and 'confidence. If they are to Ve ostracised, we leg to bo included in the list. Individual preferences mny exist, in regard to temperament, method and taste, without invidious, aess; because what exactly tuits one may not bo o agreoablo to another. Mr. Phillips, for Instance is the most popular orator in tho Anti-Slavery ranks; and re think deservedly so: not because be is not as faithful and uncompromising as the most radical of us all, but becnuBe bo has the rar est Rifts by nature, and tho finest cnlturo that edu cation can givo him. But he would indignantly spurn the distinction that should be made by any one between himself and bis co-laborers, on the ground of personal worth or publio respcut. No ene is more gonerous than himself in reference to each, in publio and in private Tni Jodoes of the Sci'rime Court or the United States. The Supreme Court which has recently made the decision in the Dred Scott case is composed of nine Judges. They are s Rooer B, Tanev, of Maryland, Joun McLean, of Ohio, James M. Wayne, of Georgia, Joun N. Catron, of Tennessee, Piter V. Daniel, of Virginia, 8amcel Nelson, of New York, Rouert C. Grier, of Pennsylvania, Benjaiiin Bobbins Curtis, of Massachusetts, Joun A. Casifbell, of Alabama. Thus it will be seen that of tho nino Judges, Ave hre from tho Slave States, nnd fourunly from the Free States. Thus tho slaveholders have eoured tho Court beyond possibility of change fare long time to come, even supposing thero were 6 Northern dough-faces among their number. We see some of tho Republican papers in their indignation at the lata decision of the Court, propose aa alteration in the Constitution, making the Judges elective and limiting their term nt office. Such a change would amount to little if it could be effected, while tho people are ready to elect Pierces and Buchanans us Presi dents. The only Judges that would stand By chance of election in the prosent pro-slavery tate of the nation, are the Jeffries and Scroggses ef tho day. But the effort to change the Consti tution 80 as in any way to cripple, ei'.ber now or prospectively, the cause of Slavery, is utterly out cf the question, while two-thirds of tho members f Congress are needed to Constitutionally origi nate such a propositi in, and three-fourths of the 8tates must vote for its adoption. Thoro is no chance for freedom by any alteration of the Con stitution until the anti-slavery sentiment has re generated the North and a large portion of the South. Disunion would como sooner and with less expenditure of labor. Tni Proceedings or the State Convention, lately held in Worcestor, Mass., have been issued in an octavo pamphlet of 80 pages, which may be bad at the office of the Liberator fir 15 cents. It contains the original call of the Convention, the Speeches made therein by F. V. Bird, Rev. S May, Jr., Dr. Daniel Mann, Rev. T. W. Iligginsou, William Lloyd Garrison and Wendell Phillips, the resolutions adopted, and tho letters received from Amasa Walker.IIenry Wilson, Rev. Theodore Parker, Joshua R. Giddings, Charles Francis Adams, Edward Wade (of Ohio), G jorge R. Rus sell, Francis Jackson, 0. W. Albee, Rv. Henry M. Dexter, Rov. II. V. Bellows Bad Prof. Calvin . Stowe. We believe the day will oomo when ihii pamphlet will be sought for with as deep an interest as that with which wo now lingor over the speeches and essays of the men who created the Revolution of 1770. Every Abolitionist should deposit a oopy of it with bis household treasurer, to be loft as a legacy to his children. IIow TO Write. Fowler and Wells 308 Broad tray, New York havo just puMUho-i the first series of popular Hand Books, entitled 'How to Write: A Pocket Manuel for Compositions and Latter-Writing j embracing hints on penmanship and the choice of wriiii.g materials; practical rules for literary composition in gone nil, and epis tolary and newspaper writing and proof correcting in particular; nnd directions for writing letters of business, relationship, friendship, and love ; illus trated by numerous examples or genuinu epistles, from the pens of the best writers. To which are added, iorms for letters of iotroduction, notes, cards, ic.and a collection of poetical quotations.' The rules and suggestions of this book will prove useful ti all who wish to perfect themselves in ths art of composition. "The Speech or Wendell Paillips, delivered in the Worcester Disunion Couventiontion. Jan. 15, 1847, and published in the Standard of Fub. 7;h, bis been issued in a pamplet, and may bo had at this office for 6 cents. It is, we think, tho best speech made by Mr. Phillips fur many years, and it ought to have a wido circulation. Why will not the friends of the cause buy it for distribution among their unenlightened and pro-slavery neigh tors 1 Standard. m This excellent speech also appeared in the Bugle. We hope the suggestions of the Standard will be complied with. Tub PittsBuro Gazette. Those of our read ers who desire on account of their business or otherwise a Pittsburg paper, will find the Gazette Daily or Weekly, one of the best published iu tbe oity. Its news columns, its prices current, and Hi business notices are reliable. It takes too, a lively interest in the cause of freedom, and ably advocates its claims so far as Republicanism goes. Another Terrible Railroad Catastrophe. One of the most appalling of lUilroad calamities occurred on the Great Western, in Canada on the 15lh inst, A whole train consisting of locomotive, tender, baggage and three passenger oars were preoipitated from a bridge, sixty feet, upon tbe olid ioeof tho stream below, There were about one bundrod passengers in the cars, and it is thought that not less than seventy were killed from the fall or by drowning, it was an acoom tnodation train, and tbe persons killed were most ly residents ajong the line of ths road. WHAT DOES IT MEAN! In nn article in the New Englander for Fohrna ry, reviewing President Pierces's messnge, e find the following pnrngrnpLi Our own confident impression is, that the ques tion of negro emnncipation, or the question of mulatto emancipation, or the question of quadroon emancipation, or the question of the emancipation of persons as nearly Anglo-Saxon us that eminent rlclemlcr nt slavery on the Loor ot the IN. a Presbyterian Assembly, the Rev. Dr. Ross, in tho Southern "States" has never been agitated in Congress, since tho time when a petition was pro- sontcd to tho First Congress, bearing the signature of Benjamin Franklin as President of the Penn sylvania Abolition Society. Tho article quoted from was written by Rov. Loonnrd Bacon, D. D.. of Now Haven, nnd the gentleman referred to in our quotation is Rov, Dr. Ross, of Huntsville, Alal ama, who has been among the most active clerical defenders of the peculiar institution. from the antecedent ref erence to the negro, tho mulatto nnd the quadroon wo are led to suppose that the INow liavun V. V. means to intimate that the Huntsville D. I), has one-eight of negro blood in his vsins. Thoro is evidently a geometrical progression hinted at, and Dr. Unoon s hints mean something. Cincinnati Uazctle. Dr. Ross is reputed as partly of African decent His residence is, or used to be, Tennessee and not Alabama. But we do not see why a Doctor ol Divinity of African decent has not as good a right to own slaves and defend slaveholding from the biblo, as any of Anglo Saxon origin. Down iton them. Sovernl of our cotempora ries of the ''Radical Abolition" stripe are down upon tho "Garrisonians" for tliolast two or thrco weeks in a very savage way. Frederick Douglass' Paper tho Reformer and tho Political Abolition ist, aro simultaneously pouring in their hot shot. They will doubtless feel better by and by. And the "fanatics" will not be much hurt, as thoy are used to it. Tun Patriotic Democracy in Kansas. The time fixed by 'ho Bogus Legislature for registering the names of persons who aro to voto next Fall for the adoption of a Constitution in Kansas, expires some tima this month. Tho Democratic Squatter Sovereign urges in the following earnest strains that pro-slavery emigrants shall hurry on to tho Territory in time to have their 'names reg istered. It says ; 'We urge all men from evory quarter of our common country, who love its Constitution nnd its perpetuity better than thoy love tho nigirer, all who are willing to abide by nnd sustain those great national principle which so recently tri umphed m the election oj Mr. JSucnunan, to le here in time for the registry. And mora espec ially we urgo our Southern friends, who intend making Kansas their home, to hasten on. Let us make Kansas a Slave State, and Democratic if' possible. Where is it? Our neighbor of the Republican says : "Tho Presidents Inaugural and the dec-sion of the Dred Scott case will embolden the South in her depredations on 'Free Soil." Very likely, successful villian always encour ages its perpetrators ; but whore will the South find the freo soil on which to commit her depreda tions. Iot in any toritorv ol thislUnion. Every whero, tho soil is freo for slave hunting, slave sioz- ure and slave holding. So the Supreme Court has decreed, and a day before the decree wa9 announ ced, the Executive of tho nation pledged himself to the world, to see the decree executed. It is not worth while to decieve ourselves with tho idea that U'C 'Democrat s and Republicans have any "froe soil" on which slavery may lay her pi rati eal hands. She has already got all, and if she would have more she must go fillibustering to Mexico or theSiudivioh Islands or somo other land whoso inhabitants wo nickname barbarians or heathen. A Settlement. Two Episcopal papers of New- York, the 'Churchman' and 'Church Journal,' have lately had a porsonal controversy which they were unable to settle without an appeal to the law. fhe resolt was a verdict of six cents dumages to one of the parties. Jacob Heaton, of this place has been appoint ed ono of tho Trustees of tho Northern State Lu natio Asylum at Nowburgh. A good .appoint ment. "No man who believes the decision in the Dred Scott case to be wrong is under any obligation to respect it, or to acquiesce in it, 'cheerfully 'or otherwise. So says the Boston Telegraph. True enough. So neither is the Slave under any obligations to obev his master, but he cannot well avoid it. Dred Scott and his family doubtless think themselves under no obligation to obey this mandate of Judge Taney and his fellows; nevertheless they have no alternative. Of our millions of inhabitants there are hundreds of thousands who believe the decision wrong but who will acquiesce, when the Slaveholder comes to their neighborhood with his chattels, for they will not risk a conflict with the powers of the Government and thus submiss ion 'cheerfully or otherwise' will be effected by the power of the Union. MISS FRANCES E. WATKINS. PHILADELPHIA, 1857. Dear Marius I should like the renders of the Bugle to know something of Frances E. Watkins t colored lady, raised in B iltimoro, Maryland. She is a woman of great abilities as a lecturer on the subject of Slavery, and has been listened to with marked attontion wherever she has spoken. I have heard her in this oity, also in Trenton and Burlington, New Jersey ; all of which places are very pro-slavery, by the acknowledgement ot their own citizens, yot thos3 who heard hor once, voted almost unanimously to hear her again. Her voice is charming, her manner refined, the subject beautifully handled and well defined. For some months past tbe Eastern Pennsylvania Society has had her employed as an agent, nnd as such she is very efficient. I asked her if she would be willing to go to Ohio and lecture. Sho expressed a desire to visit Onio. Said she onco taught school in Columbus. Her services oould not fail to be accept able and highly useful in our State, and I should be delighted if our Western Anti-Slavery Society could secure her labors for a portion of tbe present seaoon.

Tho Democrat publishes a statement In relation to the affairs in Kansas, given by Ucary. The reason of tho Governor's resignation is in conse quence of the failure of Pierce to fulfil pledges mado him at tho time of his appointment. These pledges were to support him (Geary) with army, militia, and treasury, if necessary, hut instead of lecciving this aid, he has paid $12,000 out of his own pocket, to support tho administration. He has been refused military aid under tho mos t ur gent circumstances, and thwarted by the Judicary of the Territorv in every possiblo manner. The Govornor stales that fiftv men were under oath from the dnr he entered the country till ho left, to assnssinnte him. provided his official career did not meet their approval. Gov. Gearv regrets the step be is obliged to Uke. IIo feels confident that if the promised assistance had. been rendered he could Pave ndministcrcd the affairs of tho Territory in a manner ncceptible to all honest settlers. In relation to the oulrnge committed by tho pro-slavery party, ho says the murdei of Buffuin by Havnr was the most cold bloudcd and atrocious affair ever witnessed. Governor Geary. Gov.

Cin. Ccm. Slaverv and Slave-Trade in Cuba. We have been favored with tho following extract from a pri nte letter writen by a gentleman in the Island of Cuba, which shows the condition in which not only the slaves who nrn imported fiom the African coast, but also the whites 1 iving nn the Island, are placed by the perpetuation ot the peculnr institu tion aud tho continuauco uf the Slavo- trade. "Among the fresh arrivals on ono estate whero I havo been, I was informed that the owner has lost some thirty negroes, just newly imported. This was owing to u man having lnlormcd upon Ill's.

The Lower House of the Massachusetts Legislature, on Tuesday, took action with reference to the recent decision of the United States Court in the Dred Scott caso. An order was adopted with a view to instructing tho members of Congress to propose nn auiondiiieiit of the Constitution of the United States, providing for the election uf the Supremo Court Judges by the people for a term of years. A committee was also appointed to coosider what measures should be taken in view of the lute decision. Rev. Henry Ward Beeciier gave ovidonce of Ins Catholic spirit, a lew days since, by immersing a young man, about to join his own church, in the fount of a neighboring Baptist church iu Brook lyn.

A'few days since a family of fugitive slaves, consisting of a mother and five daughters, passed through Cincinnati on their way from Cov ington Ky., to Canada, in search of an asylum where thoy can enjoy the inalienable rights given tbeui by their Creator. One daughter escaped to Canada last year, and it is probable the whole fam ily are now safe and united on freo suil.except the husband and nn only son, from whom they were cruelly separated several years ago. Very few slaves have passed the boundary this season, in comparison with former yours, owing to the strict lookout which has been kept up since the late in surrectionary excitement. The usual holidays have been disallowed, us well as attendance upon night meetings, and in many places the slaves havo been uniformly locked up utter dark Great Geographical Discovery in Georoia A Dry Swamp.

So far from being impeded by water, the expedition suffered severely from want of it, nnd were compelled to sink three wells for driiikini; and cocking purposes. The un derwood ul.o was found of almost labulous thick ness, through which they were compelled to cut their way with knives, thereby they wore so much delayed as to be in danger of starvation, their sup plies being exhausted. The most erroneous opiu ions have been entertained of the extent aud na ture of the w hole region. No published map gives any idea of its goography. The survey will prove a fiirtunuto' venture.

Tbo re cent census ot Louisiana shows the number of slaves to be 203,107, being an increase of only 18, 388 over the total of the year 1850,wbich was 244,- HU'J. llio tree population numbers 324.000, being an increase of 50.B53 over th total of 1850, which was 273,755. Thus, while the increase has been only soven per cent., that of the free population is nearly twenty ono per cent. Itie preponderence of the free over the slaves is at present Gl.400, whereas in the year 1850 it was but 28,940. At ibo tt)!ti relative rate of increase, this preponder ance win in isou reach eu.uuu. ut the whole in crease of inabitants 33,000 was in tbe city of New urleans nnd U,UUU in othor cities and towns. There was a manifest decrease of the slaves of the same communities. Doubtless tho great emigra tion to Texas and Arkansas has operated to pre vent a large increase of the slaves. Mr. Hume of Virginia, who wag shot bv Col. Leo at Washington last week, was the man who went to liostou to reclaim Antony Burns.

A man named Vincent Rosson, says the West Tennessee Argus, has recently been ruu out of that town, fur appearing in Purdy to claim a runaway slave woman, who was induced tu leave his service by ilie most barbarous treatment we ever beard of. Tho Argus says : We aro informed that he pushed her out into the weather during the coldest of last winter, hare fooled and poorly clad, until her fingers and toes were badly frosted; he then touk his knife and out them off, and threw them into the tire; poured hot water nnd threw hot embers on her beat and abused her in every way which the devil himself could havo invented, und she is only 11 or 12 yours old. At length she oould bear it no longer, and ran away she was taken up and brought to town for imprisonment in a horrible condition, covered with sores and nearly dead.
