DEER CHEEK, Stark Co., Dec, 19th, 2857.
Dear M t Aftor leaving Columbian Count; we
went to Allianci, where our Grst appointment
n maJe fur Wednesday tlie Oth. The night
wa dark and rain;, and perhaps you are aware
that Alliance it not provided with superior accom
modation! for pedestrians undor such circutnstun
ee. When we reached the house of our friend
Dr. Thomas, we learned that lie was absent on
professional business, and his wife thought the
weather was so very unfaToinblo that the friends
would hardly think it worth whilo to open the
meeting bouse. Nut feeling satisfied, however, to
make an appointment and not meet it, and the
Dr.'a daughter volunteering to ho our guido, we
went out into the mud, and rain, and darkness to
find the house, and the people, provided any were
there. In order to travel moro expeditiously we
took the railroad trnuk, and although it was im
possible to tee our way, the rails enabled us to
feel it; and in our journeying we passed, without
the aid of boats or bridges, Duinorous miniature
lakes, and sloughs, if Put of Despond, yet of a
very unplsasant maurial. Upon arriving in the
vicinity of the meeting house we were unable to
discover any lights, and thereupon returned
whence we came, exmmting, wncn we enierea tne
Dr.'i bouse, unmistakable evidences of being of
the earth, earthy.
Coon reachins Atwater. on Thursday, we as
certained that our appointment had not arrived
thero in time, so we were obliged to defer our
meeting there until a more convenient season,
which will probably be next week.
I wonder if you ever chased up an anti-shivery
appointment hunting hither and thither over hill
and valley for the plaae where your aodioiice was
to gather meeting disappointment after disap
pointment, and finally settling down upon the
conclusion that you had been chasing the mere
ghost of a meeting. We had such an experience
on Friday lnat. Having hoard when in Alliance
that an appointment had been made for us at
Deer Creek on tho evening of the llih, wo accor
dingly started from Atwater at 3 o'clock in the af
ternoon, and after a rough ride reached tho meet
ing house whero we supposed wo were to lecture.
No one tbore had heard of such an appointment,
but after making sundry efforts to obtain some re-
liable information, we learned that a meeting bad
been advertised fur us in Lima, We retraced our
way to that place with all convenient speed, hut
found no lights, no Ere, no people, and no ap
pointment tho latter having failed to bo given
oat because of some untoward circumstance.
At 7 o'clock we stopped to take breath, and put
ting up for the night ut tho house of. our friend
Isaac Coates. I hope you will give us credit not
only for meeting nil the appointments made for
j - u . .
us, but doing our best to meet some which never
At Marlboro on Saturday evoning and Sunday
we bad three largo meetings. At (he first two,
when we considered mure ospeciully the moral and
religious bearings of the question, wo had some
opposition from Disciples and Methodists. The
opposition was not, however, of a kind which de
nied that members o( both those sects held slaves,
tut Which attempted to show that those of them
who were anti-slavery in feeling, did not by thuir
religious connection necessarily endorse the chris
tian character of sluveholding members. That
positiou they defended with great zeal, and joined
forces in order to do it. I was assured that under
ordinary circumstances these sectarians are any
thing but nineteenth century patterns cf John
atbans and Davids, but the moment anti-slavery ap
pears,' they forget for a while all their former
feuds, and make common cause agunst what they
regard as a. common enemy. And yet if their
own testimony is to be thken they are very anti
lavery j and it is ol course a mystery to some of
the unenlightened why such excellent abolitionists
choose to remain in religious and political fellow
rbip with Christian and Democratic men-stealcrs.
On Sunday evening, when we discussod very
thoroughly the politiual aspects of the cause, and
anticipated considerable opposition, wo were very
much surprised by having none. Whether the si
lence of our auditors was because of their np'
prove! of our sentiments because of the convic
tion that our position was right, or whether it was
owing to soma other cause I cannot say.
On Mjnday evening we went to IIahrihbuko,
wbereour audience was less than might be ex
pected from the number of bouses in the place.
Jt was mostly settled by French Catholics, and we
Hd not anticipate receiving much attention from
that part of the population. We were assured
that about all of the inhabitants who could under
stand English were at our meeting, and as we
could not speak French, I suppose there was no
special reason for desiring the presence of the
representatives of "la belle Fiance."
The peoplo of Harrisburg had hoard but little,
and knew far less about tho principles and meas
ures of abolitionists ; we therefore thought it hist
to give them the A D C of reform, and present so
plain and simple a view of their duties and re
sponsibilities as we trusted would awaken in them
thought and inquiry. We held hut one meeting
in tbe place, but probably gave them as much
Anil slavery truth as nil! at present benefit them.
Having been invited to Gkeentown, we held
meetings there on Tuesday and Wednesday even
ings, having large audiences in the Town Hall.
This was, also new ground to anti-slavery lectur"
ers. and apparently the people heard the truth
gladly, and neither Democrats nor Republicans
felt disposed to question the correctness of doc
trines which declared all political parties acting
under the United States Constitution to be the
practical allies of the slave power. It is seldom
we meet with a more attentive auditory, or one
whose general appearance indicated more self-re
pect than that which welcomed us at Greentown.
The village itself, though composed mainly of
quite ordinary houses, had a cleared-up look that
was quite attractive, and made me think by con
trast of a village you and I know of, which was
described rather hyperbolical! y, it is true by a
mutual friend as "a place where every body threw
everything down, and where nobody pioked any
thing up." '

For the Bugle.
SOUTH WAYNE, Dec. 10th, 1857.
Deai Friend Robinson: I closed my last letter
to you. by giving you some account of the meet
ing in Jamestown, attended by Mr. Brown, Mr.
Ilowland and myself. I think I did not tell you
that in one of those meetings we were entertained
for half an hour, or more, by a methodist minister
in defsnce of slavery; he asserted that the bihle
sustained slavery, that God had ordained it, and
henoe it must be right but notwithstanding the
divine origin of the holy tin, he denied any con
nection with it eoletiastioally, insisted that the
Methodist Church North, has eome out from the
Methodist Church South, and ths his assertions'
might be proven true, he kindly informed Mr.
Ilowlund that he could obtain a Discipline at the
house some little distance from the room in which
wo were speaking; he seemed, however somewhat
surprised, not to say mortified, when Mr. II. drew
from his coat pocket the Methodist Discipline and
proccded to read therofrom, facta which proved
him guilty of fasehood. The Rov. gentleman,
(Bates by name), found it necessary about that
time to leave, having first informed his followers
that he thought it not best for them to listen longer
to suoh infidelity.
After the Jamestown meetings were concludsd,
we separated. Mr. Ilowland and Mr. Brown going
to Greenville and some other towns. I to Kins
man, Vernon and Orangeville. The meeting was
an entire failure at Kinsman, not one person pre
sented himself to make an audience, save the one
who kindly look us to the place appointed. I was
the guest of Zaphncy Stune in Kinsman, and I
am glad to acknowledge the generous hospitality
of this good friend, who together w ith his wife, did
much lur our comfort and pleasure during our stay
in that place,
At Verhon, we had a very good audience, the
people seemed anxious W hear, treated the speaker
very respectfully, and gave us an earnest invitation
to visit them Again. Mr. Brown has since spoken
to them. At Orangevillo we had a large gather
ing; Mr. Joseph Brockway was with us there, and
assisted us, making an earnest and effective speech.
A young Methodist l'rcachor was present at this
meeting, and took exceptions to our statement that
the Methodist Episcopal Church wis connected
with slavery. After having provel the fact by
the Discipline, which we find peoeseary to tako
with us; he made another complaint, which was,
that we charged falsehood upon the ministers
very unfortunately for the feelings of this member
of the fraternity, wo were able to prove this charge
also; n young man by the nanio uf Keed cinie to
the assistance of his minister in defoneo of the
church we have seldom met with a mure pitiable
eight, than this yuung man; ho seemed to us a
bloated libertine, and his conduct that evening and
tho week fullowing, confirmed us in our first im
pressions. He charged upon us, si iritualism, free-
loveism, anti-marriage, ins., &c, "Out of the
abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh," Mr.
Brown held two meetings in the same place during
that week, and on the next Sunday Mr. Ilowland
and myself went among tbem again. We were
not allowed the use of the meeting-houses, al
though they were standing unoccupied. The after
noon meeting was tolerably civil, though a good
church member delivered himself of some very im
pudent winds addressed to Mr. Ilowland. But
the ovening meeting is hardly describable. The
houso was densely packed, the stove heated to ol.
most a white hear, and the smoke uf tobacco could
be felt as well as smelted. I asked that the win
dows be raised, and kindly requested the young
mao who sat puffing at his cigar to desist, he look
no notice of the request, but when Mr. Ilowland
asked liiui a little mure earnestly o throw it out of
doors, he positively refused, making use uf lan
guage too gross to be written. At length the
simiko so completely prostrated the vitality of Mr.
'lowland, that ho was obliged to leave the house;
I fortunately bore the poison better, and was able,
by standing in the dour to speak. As Mr. II. left
the house, the rou-dies followed and surrounding
him, said all the vile words that their fruitful
memories could rccal, but finding that he could not
be moved to answer, they changed their course
and commenced a tirade of abuse of my humble
self; but this course proved quite as futilo in mov
ing Mr. II. to a quarrel as the precious action had
been. After an hours walk in the open air, Mr.
Ilowland so far recovered as to be able to take the
stand; he spoke with an earnestness and power
equal to the occasion, and though our distuibers
were still near us, sometimes at the windows,
sometimes in the door, smoking the vile weed, say
ing wicked obsceno words; we had a good meeting
and I am sure some good was dune for the cause
of the bondman.
Wc held several meetings in Hartford, and wcie
civilly treated by our audiences. We were all of
us entertained several days at Burgh-hill by Mr.
nnd Mrs. Curtis, not only were our physical wunts
supplied by these good friends but we found a
sympathy of soul, that none but those situated as
is the field worker, in this great reform, can ap
prcciato. God bless such friouJs, I would I could
make them feel how dearly they are cherished in
my "heart of hearts."
At Hartford Mr. Brown left our company, and
Mr. Curtis took Mr. Ilowland and myself to West
Andover, where we have held several meetings,
and are to hold m iro. We huvo also been to
Wayne, Cherry Valley, Dorset and Coldbrook; of
these meetings I have not now lime to speak I
will io a future report. Of the friends too much
could nut be said, the Kings, Deans, Culemans.
Browns, Uossingtons. Wliitiuores, Edwards and
many others; "let their praise be in the mouths of
all the saints," they richly deserve Heaven's choi
cest blessings. In haste,

MEETINGS IN PHILADELPHIA.
From the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Dec. 17th.
A sort of informal convention is being held at
tho corner of Tenth atid Chestnut streets, simul
taneously with the Anti-Slavery Fuir which is in
progress in tho same building, it cuminonced its
session yesterday at 3 o'clock, and was organized
by the appointment uf Henry Grew ns chairman.
Mr. Grew made some appropriate remarks on the
importance of the cause, mid opened tho way lor
other speukers, by declaring the meeting free to
all who might desire to address it.
Mr. Robert Collier, a local preacher among the
Methodists, and lately an agent uf the Pennsylva
nia Anti-Slavery Society, addressed the meeting.
He said that the mling idea of the Abolitionists
was the u nicer sal brotherhood of man. They
taught the doctrine that in every human being, no
matter how degraded or what the color of his
skin, we are to recognise a brother, This, he re
garded us the fundamental idea of the Gospel,
la fact, the Abolition Soeipty of these United
States embraced his idea ul a Christian Church,
better than any otlur organization in the country.
He h .d attended a Presbyterian Church in West
Philadelphia lately, in company with several ol
h.s eyangel.ca frieuc's and had heard a sermon.
able in dogmatical theology, in which the minister
consigned to endless and inexpressible torments,
all who do nut enter through the narrow aperture
oi a certain belief no matter what their moral
oharucter or couduct. His evangelical brothern.
orthodox men, as they were, laughed at the
bigotry of the preacher.
Mr. McKim alluded to a remark made by Mr.
Grew, in which ho spoke of "poliiioal discourage
ments. Mr. McKitu saw nothing umoouragiug
id the political signs of the tunes. On the con
trary, he hailed with great satisfaction the indi
cations afforded by the present aspect of affairs.
The chief fact that now claimed attention was the
split in Ihe Democracy. This reminded him of
the contingency hinted at in the proverb in which
"Honest men were to get their dues." The slave
power was losing its fastest friends. Douglas,
Forney, and others, who bad gone farther than
the farthest in oarrying out the schemes of the
slaveholders, had oow to bare their backs to the
overt eer s lash, nesause there was too ml to be a
depth ol degredaliuu and a point ul selt-stullih-nation
to which even they were not adequate.
The slave-drivers now treated Douglas and Forney
with the same contumely they had poured on the
heads of Sumner and Seward. Here Mr. McKim
read an article copied into a Philadelphia paper
from the Richnrjiid South, in which the editor ol
the latter journal eneers at the ' vulgarities" of
I'oupias- eariy education. "Association irirA
Southern gentlemen says the editor of the South,
'had tmothtd rfoirn the rugged vulgarities of hit
early educatinn, and he had come to be quite a de
cent and well behaved perion."
Mr. Grew agreed with Mr. Collier on the
whole, but objected to his nmking nnti-slavery
synonymous with Christianity. A man might be
an antislavery man and not be a Christian. Mr.
Collier detended bis position. A belief in the
Trinity, the Atonement, Ac, he said, was no test
of character. "If a man hated his brother whom
he bad seen, how could he love God whom he
has not seen ?" It a nun believed, w ith his heart,
the doutrino of the brotherhood of man as Christ
taught it, and acted accordingly, he held the
Cardinal doctrine of Christianity,
At all this Mr. McKim rejoiced. Not that he
looked upon these disaffected Democrats ns acces
sions to the ranks Of Abolitionists, or even of the
"Black Republicans," as they were derisively call
ed ; but besause in the loss of these men und their
confederates the slaveholders had lost their most
valuable Northern coadjutors; and because it was
a sign of the ei'Od time coming, when the North
I and 'he South should be arrayed against each oth
er luir'y and squarely on the sole issue of sla
Mr. McKim was followed by Miss KeiuOr.3. n
lady-like young woman of color, who was listened
to with more interest apparently than either of
me proceeding speakers. Mies Kemond s subject
was well chosen, and her speech that of a person
not unaccustomed to addess public audiences.
Mrs. Mott followed in an earnest and eloquent
appeal. Miss Kemond had noticed as a discour
nging fact that Rev. Dudley Tyng had been turned
out of his church for sonic words in favor of Frco
dom, and Prentice. Irom South Carolina, an owner
of more than a hundred slaves put in his stead.
Mrs. Mott stated that Mr. Tyng now preached to
larger audiences than listen to him in bis former
church, and that "last first day ovening" he ad
dressed a crowded house, with great power and
effect, on the "Siu of Oppression."
The Convention adjourned till 3 o'clock to day.
Post Okfice. We are requested by the Post
Muster of this place to state that tho Post Office

Tho Washington correspondent of tho Evening

tion was such that ha felt himself unable to en

rebollioos speech, and therefore retired from the
Senate chamber immediately after the Senator
from Illinois look the floor.
John C. Fremont and wife visited Boston re

New Haven, Conn., Dec. 19th. Last winter, a
boy named Charles E. Sagi, abouji nineteen year
of age. was missing from hi homo in C ruin well,
near Middle'uti, in this State, and an Irishman
named Putrick Nugent was charged with murder
ing him and putting his body under the ice in
Connecticut river. In a few months afterwards a
body was found in the river without u head. This
body was believed to be that of the missing bov,
from several marks upon it, us well as from "a
portion ol the clothing. Soon afterwards the lin
ing of an overcoat was found, answering to the
description of that worn by tho missing person.
. Some months after, a sailor, named Benson, di
rectly charged Nugent, the Irishman, with the
murder, lie said he saw the doed done, and as
sisted Nugent in putting the corpse under a hay
mow. He described his dress, the color of his
hair, &a. declared that he had not had any peace
of mind since the murder, and that he had come
to Cromwell especially to divulge all he knew
about it. He confronted Nugent, and charged the
deed upon him. The accused denied it, but trem
bled from head to feet.
A true bill was found against Nugent, and he
was to have been tried this month. Within a few
days, however, tho missing boy has been discover
ed in the interior of Pennsylvania by his uncle.
A special court was immediately held, and Nugent
The sailor has been arrested for perjury, with
intent to take life, and acknowledged his guilt.

Mr. Bicdanan's "Domestic Relation."
Great allowances ought unquestionably to be made
f.ir the ignorance of a man who, at the age of
seventy or thereabouts, lias never been n father
or a husband; but when Mr. Buchanan takes up-
011 himself to assert in a message to Congress,
that slavery is the only domestic relation a bout
which the people or a new State ought t be con
sulted, it is high time that position be taken
againet electing tdd bachelors to the presidency.

found some charitable institution in commemora

A Fcoitive Slave Case. Two men from
North Carulina have been in this vicinity some
three weeks, engaged in an effort to secure two

been engaged on a farm somewhere in the neigh
borhood of Ann Arbor. One of the men was a
"roper." brought on for the purpose of decoying
the negroes away qoieily, Ho found their resi
dence, and conversed with them in disguise, and
had fully arranged with them for a trip to Dayton,
Ohio, when his plans were frustrated by the inju
dicious appearance of the ownor, who was imme
diately recognized by them. At about the same
time, they recognized the "roper" as a previous
acquaintance, formerly known at the South. The
negroes refused to have anything more to do with
thim, the owner came to thU city for officers to
effect the arrest. He was informed by them that
the attempt was a bootless one, as the nosroes
were nut likely to remain and be caught, after
having recognized him ; but he insisted upon their
