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. Thine Rospeotfully,
DANIEL BONSALL.

ST LOUIS, March, 17.
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.

Slaverv and Slave-Trade in Cuba. We have
been favored with tho following extract from a pri

placed by the perpetuation ot the peculnr institu

"Among the fresh arrivals on ono estate whero I

This is outiageous. It is high time that tho

Massachusetts Movino. 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

in allowing i.bcir water to be used in so irregular a

A Slave Holder's Model Minister. In a dis

in which he admitted that he killed Frederick

guard of tho army that destroyed Osawatomie last
August. They met Frederick Brown on the rnd
before thej got to Osawatomie. White ordered
him to halt, which he did not do, when he, White,
"let him have it, and ho wbirlodlovor." This was
received in the Legislature with tremendous ap

FuoiTivrs. 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

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. The suhuiergod portion is
found to be easily drained, whereby thousands of
acres of the most valuable cotton lands in the
South will bo reclaimed.
Decrease or Slavery in Louisiana. 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.

Barbarous Treatment of a Slave. 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.

of Secretary Giiihiio.of tho Treasury Department,
thl during tbo year erding June 30, ltf&O, H.843
370 gallons of wine, spirits nnd malt liquor have
been imp o tod into this et.'intrtf. The lolnl valoe
of tliHSe drinkables is ffi.lYS.ftuil : "UB liltle
liquor bill for l'nela Sam to foot up. Brandy
forms tho largest item i.i the bill; 1.715,71" gal
lons have been consumed nt a cost of nearly $3
000,000. The grain spirits imported fall a little
below brandy in quantity (1,582,132 gallons) but
much below in value, 1772,270. Nearly a million
of "other spirits" besides are consumed, nt nn cx
penso of $2.18,000. Ovor a million nnd n half gal

red wines were imported, at on aggregate cost of
about $850,000. Wn havo drank also 1,100,000

Precept vs. Practice. The Vicksburg Whig,
commenting on an article from the Sjuth Carolina
Times upon the death of the "Southern Agricul
turist," makes the following sigmticaut state
ment ;
Evon tho Mississippi Legislature', .at its late ses
sion, allowed its law to go to Boston to bo printed,
and made an appropriation of three thousand dol
lars to pay one of its members to go there and
read the proof sheets, instead of having it done
in the state, and thereby assisting in building up
a Southern publishing house. What a commont
aiy on tho Yankee haters? They passed a law
reducing legal advertisement to about ene-half
the prico charged by nil Western nnd southern
newspapers. They seem to have an adtipathy to
newspapers in their own Btate, nnd no aount
wish to break them down-, to benefit tho circulation
of those in tho Eastern Slates,
