THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE.
marble tould bt animated, to tbnt Iht Rod could kite up and tUnd erect, tin roof would lit lifted from Iht temple. So of men In ilia Republican venkt. Let tbem rite up stand erect, nod the; tear tht roof from tbt party. 80 tbeM men it not escape the difficulty or in tonslttenoy tbey art into! fed in by objecting to or ditproving.if they could do this oar view of the pra-tlavtry obaraoter of the Constitution. They only declare the falsity of the position of their par ly, and their own inconsistency and guilt, in re malnlng in it Still the fact that 10 many resort to this argument at all, it evidence of what I hare jntt aaid, that whatever of anti-slavery thero is, is gravitating toward the doctrine that there can be no nioa between freedom and slavery. Then with regard to the mattor of personal duty. That wt are morally bound to repudiate the union ousting between the North and South, approachcs also, I think, to the character of a truism. If I iiavt moral obligations which I cannot escape from, If it it my duty to bt a whole man and not a met led mats, or fragment of something else , then taj right to stay in the present union niuBt involve 'my right to bt a slaveholder. If Slaveryis strong nougb to save itself, it is strong enough to crush freedom. Have I a right to bo a slaveholder? Wt are agreed in the negative. But if I have no right to be a slaveholder directly, I cannot right fully become such indirectly. I cannot without guilt say to South Carolina, you buy and sell and scourge the slave, coining his blood, drop by drop into gold for your coffers, and I will aid you to 'keep your victims in your grasp, or, at least, ro ' turn them to you if they escape ; or if they imitate 'the txamplt or our revolutionary lathers and at tempt to resist you, I will stand by you with battle' iazt and sabrt ready to hew them down. Yt this is tbt eompact. The Union that it and feat been from tht first, is based on the surrender f fugitive slaves, and the agroement to aid the matter to crush his rebelious victim. Give us a new Constitution either, by new construction or otherwise, and you abolish the present union and tfena another and a different one. If the JSeetft will accept thit new Constitution, that is to set jnti-tlavery, for oot I eball be satisfied ; for I asreSer anion to separation. It is only union with wreaig that I object to. So if you prefer to de an4anew union that shall be true to freedom and jtttfet. and makethat your rallying cry, that it your affair. I think it best to cry "no union with slaveholders." I am willing you shall form a new and perfect Union, but I maintain thai you cannot without wrong remain in the present one, which fledges the parties to it to the greatest iniquity, Go to the courts, they tell you the same of the Union that w tell you, so if the Legislators, and leading politicans of tbe land. Many of the Demo oratt declare it a machine to keep the "damm'd niggers" under the white man's feet, whilo the Re publicans regard it as a pledge to give back the fugitive slaves, and to peimit and piotect the sys tem in the states where it is, but not to extend its dominion. Tht radical abolitionisis, in opposition to oil tbe land beside, claim that the present pro-slavery Union it bated upon an intirely fake interpreta tion of the Constitution. They admit that this Interpretation has been (riven to the instrument from tht vtry beginning of the Government under it. Now I draw tbe conclusion that if the pro- alavery sentiment of tho Nation was such that it toald at the very beginning take an aoti slavery tomlitution, destroy all its fair proportions and anaka it into an instrument for the defence and upport of tyranny, that sentiment must have been intensely pro-slavery, and the Union thus form ed, vile beyond all comparison. I do not propose to argue the question, now, whether the constitution is pro-slavery or anti alavery, but I think the fact that the constitution was put to a pro-slavery uso as sooa as formed, and by the men who formed it, is a good reason for objecting to the correctness of this anti-slavery interpretation. If a man goes to his anvil and tnakta an axe, am I to be mado to believe that he wants U use this axe in mowing the grass in his meadows! If be had wanted a scythe be would probably have made one. So of those who made tbt constitution and applied it to use. They, in 11 probability, made what tbey wanted to use. 'They went to work chopping down trees, instead of mowing grass, with the instrument they bad made It was clearly, then, an axe they wanted ; and vtht inference is unavoidable, that the thing they wanted and used, is the thing they made. If they had made aa anti-s'avery constitution, meaning it to bo so, tbey would have used it as such. Their forming a union based upon it, as tbey did, to strike dowa liberty, thows, at any rate, what that union it and mutt bt to long at slavery is a party to it Tbt onion being thut pro-slavery and wicked, our relation to it involves a question of personal duty. I have no better right to belp another hold a slave than to hold bim myself. I bad better, iptrhaps, of tht two, hold bim directly. Suppose I own a tlave, and somebody rebukes me for it, tell- iing mo bow wrong it it. Yes, I answer, but I am ,m practical man ; I ean do thit man good by bold :iog bim at my property. I can treat bim well, :and prevent othert from treating bim ill. I can .look to hit interests and make bim comfortable. 'Trna all thit sophistry could be made to disappear ia tht light of conscience and reason, still these .considerations would appear to be tome puliation, though no justification. But bow is it with help ing in tne noiaing ot slaves by another man, who may neglect their interests, disregard their comfort, and treat tbem with whatever of wanton eruelty he may choose to inflict ; and that too, hen. I have no power to in terfore, even to tbe lightest extent, between tht overseer and bit vic tim T I compel tbt slave to remain in bis chains under tht power of a man, it may be, devoid of 11 humanity, and controlled by tvtry bast pat- tion, i or tucn an aei wnat shadow or excuse could I make what palliation could I offer T Am I to become, or to continue, a slaveholder 10 pratervo tho nnion ? No consideration could ever justify mo in such a court. Yoo would not bold slaves yourselves, yet you will belong to t union that supports slavery, and supports itbe- aust you art in it. But you would not "so dan ger tht anion." Tht anion, I answer, that you aannot support without becoming slaveholders, is partnership in tyreny and wrong such as had better bt broken op. What though it offer you wealth and power. Art these worth gaining by outraging justice and violating tbt right f What shall it profit a man if ht gain tht whole world of wealth and grandeur, and lost hit self respect, and oonsoious rectitude of character f No consid erations of national glory and grandeur, or of personal gain, can bt any shadow of justification for sustaining a compact that sanctions and sup ports tlavety, I trust those who have been up holding tbt anion thut far will consider wbat tbey art doing, and bt rtady to take a stand in favor of freedom and justice, and in opposition to thit guil ty partnership with oppression and wrong. FIELD NOTES. Near Jamkstown, Pa.. October 22, 1857. ) Dear M, After the conclusion of our Andover meeting we made a brief incursion into I'ennsylva. nia poor benighted Pensylvania, whera tht star of party Demooraoy is always in tbt asoendant,and the majority or whost psople, in tbt tvtnt 01 a dissolution of tbt Union, would, I ftar.be far better fitted for companionship with southern cradle plun derers and stealers of men, than with those who wore determined to form a government in accord ance with the Declaration of Independence. Tht Fosters held two meetings in tht Protestant Methodist Meeting house in tht Brockway noigb' borhood, the Dr. and myself occupying one even ing in the same place. We also held a mooting near Mayville, and anothor in Jamestown. At Mayville we had an audience composed, I should think, of about equal parts of Democrats and Ro. publicans, who were all so ignorant of tht ABC of anti-slavery, that one could "scarcely tell tother from which". A Republican who came to the ser' vice of his party, frankly admitted that a Ropubli can President, by his oath of office would be obliged to see that the Fugitive Slave Law was faithfully executed, and in tho event of a servile insurrection would shoot down the iusurgent slaves. He then attempted to justify such action on the ground of constitutional obligation, and it being ne cessary for the preservation of the Union. He was right in every thing but the attemptod justification of such infamous deeds, and if anti-slavery Repub licans were generally as honest and candid as th speaker referred to, we should not have to spend so much time in exposing the miserable quibbles by which they seek to stultify themselves and de lude others into the belief that the Republican party is an anti-slavery and not a pro slavory in strumentality. At Jamestown we had a candid, and in the main uu apparently intelligent audience. Here was some opposition, or perhaps I should say supposed opposition to our views made by a Republican lawyer, who, from tho exhibition of his powers could hardly be considered as sustaining so near a relation as first, or even second cousin to the Phil adelphia lawyers, whose keenness has passed into a proverb. I could not but regard his speech as an excellent illustration of the Scotchman's defini tion of metaphysics "When the man wha talks dinna ken what he is saying, and the people wha' listen dinna ken what tbey hear". We wero urged to return on the following, or some other evening, but our engagements were such we conld not accept the invitation. So much interest was excited on the question of disunion, and tho inconsistency of abolitioLiists sustaining the United States Consti tution, that a dobate was appointed three weeks hence, the parties to which, will be the Republican lawyer alluded to on the one side, and a plain farm or, on the other, who is ono of the few Scotch Con venanters at Jamestown. The meetings held in the Brockway neighbor hood were the only ones of the kind the people there ever had. They presented to many a new revelation of anti-slavery truth, calling tbem to occupy a higher plane of action than tbey are yet prepared for. I sometimes keenly feel that in our efforts to educate contracted consciences, and awaken in limited intellects the power of compre. hension, wo art making but slow work. Yet al though we may feel impatient to witness the more rapid growth of our principles, we cannot expect it when we remember tbt character of those whom we have to convert into anti-slavery labor ers. "Little by little the bird builde ber nest." The Bnckway family are doing a good werk in that region. They are of themselves enough to keep up a vontinual agitation, end can, by a liberal circulation of tracts and papers greatly increase the amount of anti-slavery light among their neighbors, and ultimately warm them into ofi'ect ive action fur the captive's release. WARREN, Oct. 26th. After leaving Pennsylvania, Mr. and Mrs. Fos. ter and myself held three meetings in.Kinsman just this side of the State line. They were pretty well attended so far as numbers was considered, but many of our auditors we treated contrary to the scriptural rule concerning the disposition of pearls. Tbe town is under Presbyterian influence, and that of the old school stripe. I trust, however, we did some good, and if in no other way, by strengthening the bands of some two or three friends we have there. S. S. Foster held the concluding meeting in Wayne on Thursday night, when the audience was large and interested. The frionds there put a few dollars into tbe treasury, and subscribed for some six or seven anti-slavery papers which will greatly aid in continuing the excitement and inter est which now prevail. On Saturday evening nnd Sun jay last we held meetings at Warren. The weather was unfavora ble for a large attendance, but the moral feeling of tbe place was far more in fault than the weath er. We bad, however, a larger congregation than I expeoted, and if the growth of the seed of truth is not choked by tbe stony soil, which is ever found in csunty towns, wo shall receive, at least, a scan ty harvest. Pledges were made to the amount of $21,75, and $4,56 given in contributions. And thus endeth the last chapter. B. S. J. i'roceedinos of the Convention.

The twenty-first anniversary of the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society recently held its annual merit ing. The lust Standard is largely occupied with a report of its proceedings. Its Philadelphia oor respedent write under date of October 20th at follows 1 Our Pennsylvania Anti-Slaverv Societv held its meeting on Friday and Saturday last, at West Chester, nnd notwithstanding tht unpropitiout state of the weather and gloomy condition of the limes, it wat a gathering, in numbers and spirit, altogether worthy of the occasion. A good doal of disar nointment was felt at first at tho non-ap pearance of Mr. Garrison 1 but when the reasons of his absence were made known' and his lotter.which I send you herewith, read, tht people were satisfi ed , and, before tht meeting was over, they discov ered.as they have more than once discovered under similar oiroumstnncet, that his prtsenoe.bowever de sirable was not altogether indispensable to the in terest or tne gathering. There was no lack or com petent speakers, nor did the meeting suffer much, if any, from want of more foreign assistance. Mr. Gay, whose presenco was most welcome, was the only speaker from a distance : the rest were all Pennsvivanians. They were Wm. II. Furnes, Lucrelia Mott, Robert Purviss, Mary Grew, J. M. McKim, E. M. Davis, Thomas Whitson, Henry drew, B. R. Plumly, J. S. Flint, Robert Collier, J. A.Karsher the two latter.new men, drawn to our meo'.ing by their interest in the cause and per haps others whose names do not now occur to me. To Mr. Furnets we are especially indebted. His address, which was tht feature of tbe meeting in the speaking line, was listened to by a full bouse with the deepest attention. It was sound in doc trine, and happily opportune in tone and general sentiment. It affirmed and illustrated the folly of political action as n means of moral reform j justi fied the faith, doctrinal and practical, of the ultra Abolitionists, and drew valuable lesions of instruc tion from the developments which art now being made by the times. Tns Post Orrici Address, of Charles Lenox Remond and Misv Sarah P, Remond is for tbe present, Salem, Columbiana Co,. Ohio, Cincinnati, nov. 3. Three slaves belonging to Thornton Withers en route for St. Louis to Parker t burg' Va., were seized yesterday on a steam wat at the wart on a writ of habeas corpus, issued by Judge Burgoyne and'plsced under charge of Davis Eggelston by ordor of tbe Court. A habeas corpus was sworn out before Judge Carter by Withers, claiming that the slaves were illegally restrained of their liberty, and elaimins that they owed him service in Virginia, whither be was carrying them when they were wrested from his bands. The writ was served by tbe Deputy Sheriff and the slaves were brought be fore Judge Carter this afternoon. Cincinnati, Nov. 4.

Tht Ciilumhut Stnlom.in in vtpnmlinsl well plomed with the fact Hint large numborsof Indi ans, who have acquired no other element of nivili tation than drinking whiskey, have been lod up to tht polls tn "vote," in Minnesota, utterly unable to read their votes, and scarcely able to mumble a word of English, Our Democratic cotempornry is greatly enamored of these great original Know Nothings. That an intelligent neoro should exer cise the right of suffrsge, or that such a thing iiuuiu oe tnought ot, has seemed to the editor of that paper a most audacious outrage upon respee bit whitt men. What substantial reason should exist for dis criminating in this back-handed way, we were cer tainly at a loss to discover. But the Statesman very naively let out the eerret. It says the Indi ans all vote for the Democracy, and the negroes for the Black Republicans. This satisfactorily ac counts for the increased Democratic vote in Min nesota, if it does not settle the relative rights and merits of the two races. The savages who voted in Minnesota had no more legal right to vote than tht blacks bave in Ohio. They have not "adopt ed the habit of the whites," in any legal sense, aj is well known. But their submitting to march up to the polls, and to rut in Democratic votes, at command, is sufficient qualification, in the view of ur coiemporary, whatever may be said by the constitution or the laws. Cincinnati Gazette. ACt-Riors Fugitive Slave Case has just occur red here, and is not yet decided. In June, 1850. Mr. Louis Clephane, a well known anti-slavery gentleman connected with 2A National Kra newspaper and Secretary nf the Republican As sociation, recoived a letter apparently from Bos ton, informing him that thero was in that city a ooloied woman, Matilda Smith, who two or throe years bofore had run away from her master, a Mr. Martin, of Maryland, with whom she had openod a correspondence, and from whom she had received a letter offering to sell her for $75, she being old and blind of an eye and not worth much as a fugitive in Massachusetts. Mr. Clop hone was requested by the writer of the letter from Boston to buy the woman if Mr. Martin would adhere to hit agreement, Accordingly Mr. Clephane wrote to Mr. Martin, who came to Washington, and verv readily nnd with apparent ly entire good feeling executed a bill of sale of uiainaa smith to Air. Ulupliane, Dy whom she was of course manumitted in due form of law. Mr. Clephane states that during their interview Mr. Martin's conduct and language wore those of a gentleman who was performing an agreeable action, in a frank and courteous rnannor. Do inserted in the bill of sale a description of the woman, at the request of Mr. Clephane, who had never seen ber, and in fact bos never seen ber to this day. About last Christmas, Matilda came to Wash ington, or at least appeared here as a free iro man, and engaged hersolf as a hired servant in the family of a gentleman of the city, where she has lived quietly until Friday evening last, when she was arrested by the police as a runaway slave, and committed to jail. On Saturday morn ing she was brought before a magistrate and ex amined. Mr. Clephane testified to her manumis sion, and brought up Mr. Martin ns a witness, who admitted that he had sold tho woman to Mr. Clephane for $75, but that he wns induced to agree to the tale by fraudulent representations lie alleges that the woman never was in Boston at all, but has been concealed in Washington. The statement that she had escaped to tbe north he avers to be a trick to induce him to part with his property for a tnllo. lie further states that the slave is not his, but bis wife's, and that tho hill of ealo is worthless, as he has no right to sell his wife's property. If this last statement be oorrect, the sale was of course a fraud, fur Inch the seller is liable to pumshmont. The consideration of the case h as been postponed till Thursday next. Meantime. Matilda remains in j ail. Washington Cor. (Oct. 20) Tribune Tnt Malicnant Society. The Washington corretpondent of the New York Tribune says: 'It is an indication of the sectional venom which fills the natives of that little pepperpot. South Car olina, that they gloat over the calamity of the commercial North with unalloyed joy. In a circular, issued by the Bank of South Carolina, the first to suspend after the example of the Phil adelphia banks, the distresres of that portion of the A or thero population deprived of business fur nish a theme of self-ccngra'.ulatiun. Tbe writers recur to the sectional conflict on political issues as a pretext fur asserting that the South will be ex empt from the sufferings which must afUict the North. They evidently regard, or wish others to regard, the orash and disaster in tho Freo States as a judgment upon tbem for opposing slavery.' Here are some facts which indicate that the boasting South will soon be humbled: The Greenville (S. C.) Enterprise says that ne gro property has depreciated at least twenty-five per cent, in that district within a month past. Several causes have combined to lower the price. The panic in the financial market, and the conse quent fall in the price of cotton, have contiibuted in a great measuro to produce the depreciation of negro property. The Galveston Civilian, of the 10th inst. in its review ot the market, remarks : Cotton has shared the fate of all other commod ities, aud suffered a heavy decline, while the mar ket is nearly idle, for the want of available funds to operate at any price. Middling cotton, which was in some instances bold up fur 10 cents in the market two weeks since, oould nut now he cashed at over 13J , and probably tbe amount on hand would close tbt market, if priced at that or even a lower rate.
