THIS VOICE OF FREEDOM.
great pith and pungency, in which the whoie house was delighted. We give a single specimen, hop ing to find the whole, ere long, as taken down by the reporter. Mfc H. fell in with a fugitive, who had been taken up in Rhode Island. The trem bling captive sought counsel of the mechanic. On lieing questioned as to the probability of his re lease, Hill assured the man that he need not fear, far he was in " Yankee land." " No, he added, twelve men of Rhode Island will never deliver you over lo the slaveholders unless it can be proved that you were lorn contrary to the Decla ration of Independence!" When ihe New York mechanic resumed his seat, Mr. Lewis Tappan paid a high compliment to his uprightness and fi delity to the cause. " Mr. Hill,' said Mr. T. " was my candidate for Governor." For 'the Voice of Freedom. Isaiah 6,8, For I the Lord love judgment, I hate rob bery for burnt-offering.' Robbery is taking away by force, or violence, that which belongeth lo another. And it will not make this violent act right, if the robber devotes part of his gains to some religious purpose. In former times God required the Israelits to bring various beasts to be consumed on his altar as a burnt sacrifice. A man goes into his neigh bor's field and by violence takes fiom aim a sheep, or an ox, drives it to the temple, and presents it to the priest, who takes it from him, and is about to offer the bullock upon the altar ; when, lo ! a voice from the Excellent Glory, says, ' I hate robbery for burnt offering.' The man is a thief. The ox has been stolen. And now the robber has the presump tion to offer it upon mine altar, and to bring me in as an accomplice of the robbery. 1 abhor rolbery. ' The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to me,' Prov. 18, 8. I desire mercy, and not such sacrifice,' Hosea, 6, 6. A son of good old Eli hears this solemn declaration, looks at the good fat ox, and. longs for his perquisites out of the of fering, and he soon finds an excuse for silencing his. conscience, if he have any conscience left. He wants a piece of fat beef; and surely it can do no "hurt to encourage this Israelite in presenting his ox for so religious a purpose. One rule must ap ply to all, and we need ask no question for con science sake. ' And oamuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.' 1. Sam. 15, 22. Such was the stale of the case in a.icient times. Hcs it been altered in modern times ? Has God become reconciled to robbery, and is he willing to dispense with the claims of justice, and to partake of the gains of oppression ? Instead of an ox I will suppose the price of a man is presented to a benevolent society. A slaveholder has sold an able bodied slave for a thousand dollars, and sends the money to the society. They arc told that it is robbery, the price of blood. They hear a voice saying, ' I hate robbery for burnt offering." What shall they do ? Here is n thousand dollars. It is sent by a very pious Christian, and for a very good purpose. It will help our friends, and if we keep it we may expect more from the same class of people. As they sell off their slaves they will send us a part of the profits ; but if we reject this liberal sum, we shall never get any more from them. Alas! what shall we do? We want money; and as robbers get their money easy, they can af ford to give liberally. Besides, if we don't take it somebody else will. Well, you have taken it. And is there no lingering about your heart ? Is not conscience at work ? Can you retire into your closet and thank God, that your poor brother was sold for that money, and is now sweating and toiling under the lash? An apostle says: 'Be , not ye therefore partakers with them.' Eph. 5, 7. ' Be"not a partaker of other men's sins.' I. Tim. 5, 22. And God again repeats the declaration, I hate robbery for burnt offerings' Is it not better to obey God, than man ? And must not those expect judgment without mercy, who have showed no mercy ? I would shake my hands from hold ing of bribes. . An Aged Minister. For the Voice of Freedom. Mr. Editor : . In his letter to Rev. Mr. Bliss, President Lord says : 'I am an abolitionist.' The editor of the Chronicle, July 10th, says ' Dr Lord is not an aboli tionist in the sense of the anti-sla very society.' Who shall decide this important question ? I have sup posed that to abolish was to destroy, annul, blot out ; and that he who did abolish a thing, or aid in doing it, was an abolitionist, as it respected that thing. Dr. Lord holds to the 'obligation of all men to attempt the immediate and entire removal 'of slavery, according to their best judgment, and in such modes of action as are proper in respect to other mora! and patriotic enterprises.' These are just my views on the subject, and I have sup posed that I was justly exposed to the reproach of abolitionism. But if Dr. Lord is not allowed the honor of being an abolitionist, I know not why I should have the honor. It is true that I belong to an anti-slavery society, and have felt it my duty and my privilege to exert my feeble influence in behalf of the slave ; but I call no man master, and am responsible for the obliquities of no man in the anti-slavery ranks, or in the ranks of christians, untjl I embrace their views. Good men may em brace, in their ardor for the abolition of slavery, principles which I cannot adopt ; and whole asso ciations of good men may try to fx a yoke upon thechurch, & carry out a princ.iple,hch I believe, would carry us back to Rome. In the one case lam no more answerable for the principle pushed forward, than in the other ; and abolition is no more answerable for the errors, divisions, or sins of those, who range themselves under her banners, than Chiristianity is for all the errors, divisions and sins of those who range themselves under her banner. And the infidel may i.npute all the errors, and obliquity, and crimes of Christians to Christianity, with as much truth & propriety, as an anti-abolitionist may impute the errors, or faults of abolitionists to aboliiion. And Christianity is as much answerable in the one case, as abolition is in the other. But there are "journalists and oiler leicers who figure in the present anti-slavery movements,' who seem to the Chronicle to be plague-spols, which corrupt every thing they touch. Well, those same journalists and leaders sometimes figufc in peace societies, in temperance societies, in Bible socieites, and in Christianity. Are all these so corrupt by ihelr figuring, that there is no healing of their malady? Are all their sins to be imputed to each society, with which they are connected, or are they to be divided among the different socie ties, or are they all to be heaped on abolition, the poor scape-goat ? Take one of the journalists, Mr. Garrison, and paint him as black as you please. He figures in the Christian church, and has no little influence in the Christian world. Is Christianity answerable for all his eccentricities? Would- you turn away from that church, with which he is connected? Is the temperanee causey or the cause of peace on earth, to be resisted, and abandoned, because he is connected with them, ' and figures in their movements? Why not? If the aboliiion society is to be condemned because Mr. Garrison figures in its movements, then Christ ianity, and every institution, civil, social, or relig ious, should be condemned for the same reason ; "Doing nothing by partiality." And John said, "Master, we -saw one casting out devils in thy name , and we forbad him, because he followed not with us." And Jesus said unto him "Forbid him not ; for he that is not against us i3 for us.'' Luke, 9, 49, 50. When will the disciples of Christ imbibe his spirit, and hearken to his commands? Kiah Bkyley. What has the North to do with Slavery ? The Lieutenant Governor of Virginia has recent ly made a demand on the Governor of New York for th ree free colored men, citizens of New York, who are charged with the crime of having enticed away a slave from Virginia. A gang of diaboli cal man-catchers, in New York city, in the employ, no doubt, of southern slaveholders, seized on the victims and thrust them into prison, without any legal authority, before the requisition reached Gov. Seward. On the reception of the requisition, Gov. Seward pronounced the evidence in the case to be insufficient to sustain the charge, but he consented, it is said, that the victims of this atro cious system of land piracy should remain unlaw fully imprisoned, until the pirates shall have time to find or to manufacture sufficient evidence ! Why did not the Governoi of New York order these men who had been imprisoned contrary to law, to be released according to law ? What has the North to do with slavery ? Vt. Tel. Mr. Clay in Rochester. Or hoio the abolitionists treat slaveholders. Senator Preston says : "If an abolitionist ven tures among us, he will be caught." When slave holders come among abolitionists at the north, how are ihey treated ? "Read and you will know." From the Rochester Freeman. To afford a just qualification to impressions a bro'id as to the sentiments with which Mr. Clay was addressed here, we publish the following copy of a letter handed to him, while in this city. The names affixed to it are all of abolitionists, and their number might have been quite large, if a few had not been thought sufficient. The publi cations sent were, "American Slavery as it is,'' "Thome and Kimball's West Indies," "The Con stitution of the U. S. Ami Slavery Society, and Declaration of Sentiments," with the last number of the "Rochester Freeman." If they are favored with an answer from Mr. Clay, we shall submit it to the public. Hon. Henry Clay Sir: Having a high es timate of your distinguished abilities, and having heretofore rejoiced in many manifestations of them, in behalf of great national interests, we cannot but feel the deepest regret at your views on the sub ject of slavery, as they have been publicly ex plained. Permit us respectfully to ask, how the principles of slavery can be at all reconciled with the Declaration of Independence, with pure mor als, or republican freedom ? How they can be reconciled with the declarations of revealed truth, that "God has made of one blood all the nations of men, and that all men are brethren ?" And how great, deliberate, and long continued hostili ty to the justice and humanity involved in these truths, can be reconciled to the idea of an irresist able, overruling Providence, ever directed to their support ? Believing in these trutks, as containing the ba sis of all true individual and national prosperity, and that slavery is fatally at war with them, we should delight, by our firesides, and in all our so cial intercourse, if those great intellectual and moral pewers, which were so honorably displayed in behalf of freedom, when the constitution of Kentucky was first framed when the struggle for liberty in South America was at its crisis when the treaty of Ghent was negotiated and on other interesting occasions, could be brought anew, with their maturest vigor into the holy ser vice of humanity. For ourselves, allow us to observe that we are convinced, no efforts can long maintain slavery in any portion of the wide circle of civiliza tion, and its advocacy, therefore, while it will Continually lessen the influence of the most gifted of the men who engage in it will soon be connect ed with nothing so much as regret and mortifica tion. And while we are happy in this belief, we also believe that the result we seek, cannot be af fected by any agencies of violence and wrong, but must be the fruit of facts, arguments and experi ence, operating upon the attribute of our common nature and interpreted and applied in the spirit of truth, candor and kindness. With these remarks, we beg leave to offer to your acceptance, the accompanying publications, which we think establish the irreparable misery and mischief of slavery beyond denial the safety and benefits everywhere sure to spring from it. abolition and at the same time, indicate, in a just light, the peaceful, and Christian means intended always to be used by us, and those with whom we act, for the aboliiion of slavery. Requesting your searching and unbiassed at tention to these publications, at your earliest con venience., We beg leave to assure you of our corJi al good wishes, for your full and everlasting en joyment of all the blessings laid up for such as de vote themselves to the practical assertion and sup port of truth, justice, and humanity.

Rochester, July 22, 1839. In another column of the Roches'.er Freeman, we find the following: Mr. Holley Sir : Were two colored men who accompaned Mr. Clay his SLAVES ? I ask for information. Yours, A. B. July 23, 1839. From the Emancipator. Response of Ministers. The proposal to furnish the Emancipator gra tuitously to every minister who will lecture on slavery, and take up a collection for our treasury is meeting a favorable reception. The following is a sample of the returns that are coming in. Berkshire Vt. July 23, 1939. Dear Sir, I have just seen in the " Voice of Freedom," an offer of the Emancipator to minis ters gratis for one year, who will deliver a lecture on the subject of slavery and take up a collection for the American A. S. Society. I beg lo say that I am often in the habit of lecturing on the subject, and urging on the friends of humanity and human rights the duty of helping the Ameri can abolition society both with their pravers, mon ey, and influence. Seven years ago i left Eng land with my family preached the gospel five years nearly in L. C. and then crossed the Line 45, and took the'eharge of the two Congregation al churches in Berkshire, and the one in Montgom ery. I never go into the pulpit but I take the poor American slave with me ; and I never mean to part company with him till I see him standing in the full attitnde of a man and a fellow citizen. God in mercy hasten the happy day. We have a society in Berkshire and many valuable friends ; we are now making a collection. About a year ago we formed a society in Montgomery and on the Fourth we had a meeting a good meeting. I addressed the people, and spent some time in prayer for those in bonds appointed collectors to raise what they could through all the town. I lectured some time ago in Bakersfield and was well abused I thought this a good sign. Good sailors don't like to see the waters loo calm ; they can make but little way. Now, my dear sir, send me the Emancipator and all the publications you think proper for dis tribution, and I will renew my efforts both in lecturing, praying, and stirring up the people in these parts to help the great and merciful cause. Very affectionately yours, John Gleed. "Recipe for Floating. Any human being who will have the presence of mind lo clasp the hands behind the back, and turn the face towards the zenith, may float with ease, and in perfect- sa ft -tyin tolerably still water aye, and .sleep there, no matter how long. If not knowing how to swim, you would escape drawing, when yon find yourself in deep water, you have only to consider yourself an empty pitcher let your mouth & nose, not the topo your heavy head-be the highest part of you, and you are safe. But thrust up one of your bony hands, and down you go; turning up the handle tips over the pitcher. Having had the happiness to prevent one or two drownings by this simple instruction, we publish it for the benefit of all, who either love aquatic sports or dread them. Mass. Abolitionist. May be so. But we have been trying to con jecture how it happened that Br. Wright, alias the Massachusetts Abolitionists, made the discovery. Perhaps he may have been led to observe The al titude of those "empty pitchers" who may be seen in great numbers, every day, "floating at ease," upon the "tolerably stiTT water'' of popular opin ion ; aye, and who "sleep there, no matter how long." They seldom "know how to swim" a gainst the current. Their open mouths and fas tidious noses evermore uppermost, in the compar ison with their hearts and their brains. Being al ways of the do-nothing class, they are quite ready to "clasp their hands behind them." Accustomed to the shallows of human thought, they are al ways intent on self-preservation when they are caught in the "deep water" of radical investiga tion. They are commonly flat on their backs, and the part of the sky directly over their own dear heads always seems highest and engages their principal attention. So much for the philosophy of floating 'Friend of Man. Slaveholdino Courtesy. "We will not 'please exchange' and be d d to you !" Such is the courteous reply of the Georgia Messenger to our request for an exchange. A very appropriate de fender of a "divine institution !" It will be re collected that we offered to pay the difference be tween their subscription price and ours. The day may be near when the slaveholders will wish they had not confessed so much. Mass. Abolition ist. . Arnold Buffitm, an erect and sturdy friend of the human race, well known as " Arnold Buffum, the hatter," and first lecturer of the New England Anti-Slavery Society, has been appointed by the Executive Committee of the American Anti-Slavery Society an agent to lecture in Indiana. Success to him. The choice could not have been more appropriate. lb. A Hard Case. An aged negro was recently sentenced to ten years imprisonment in the peni tentiary of Md., for reading to the slaves. This was the shortest period the law allows for such an offence. The judge declared.his intention, in ev ery future case, to execute the utmost limits of the law, which is an imprisonment of twenty years, and after the expiration of the term, the offenders are required to leave the Stale, and if they ever return are to be taken up and sold as slaves. Such a punishment for such an act! Ob. Evan. Comforts for Dough-face D. D's. A minis ter related the following to me, which he had di rectly from Dr. Hill. Says Dr. Hill to Mr. , " We cannot but respect and love such men as brother Rankin, and Alvan Stevar, after all, for their ingenuous, frank and honest course pursued against slavery ; in telling us that there will be no peace in the general assembly until slavery is expurgated, and those who hold slaves retire by themselves. ' But such men as Ccx and Bcecher, who have formerly been openly against us, and sympathised for the slave in order to retain us, dodge, and offer compromises, are unworthy of our confidence, and contemptible. We shall never appear with them again." Cor. of Charter Oal . Foreig 11 ft e w s . Fioan the New York Sur. Arrival of the British Queen. Six days later rnoiu London. The British Queen, which has heen looked for during the two days past with so much anxiety, arrived al Sandy Hook about 8 o'clock this morning, and at 10 o'clock was in her berth at Pike Slip. She sailed from Liverpool on the 11th inst., and Ports mouth on tho 12th, bringing London and Liverpool pa pers to Ihe latter date six days later than those received by the Great Western. ' The news brought by the Br'tish Queen is of little impor tance. An engagement is reported to have ta1 en place be tween the Turkish Army and the Egyptian Cavalry, in which the latter were repulsed. The report, however, is somewhat doubtful. From the British Emancipator. The Institute of France has just proposed the question of the abolition of Slavery for a Prize. The delegates from Martinique and Gaudaloupe, informed of the resolu tion of that eminent body, wrote immediately R protesta tion against it; and having tried lo evpose the danger of such a question being publicly discussed in all its differ ent points, M. de Saint Anthoiiie addressed the following letter to the President of the Institute nf France, as a refu tation of the opinion expressed by the delegates. To the President of the Academy of Moral Sciences. (Institute of Fi ance.) Sir: Without doubt the Academy over which you pre side has no need of my pen, in order to signalize the en croachment which is attempted upon the domain of its rights; however that may be, since I am a member of the French Society for the abolition of Slaverv, a feeling of imperative duty urges me to refrain from silence, after the perusal of the letter of the delegates from Gaudaloupe and Martinique, which appears in the Journal dr.s Debats, of the 26th April, addressed to the Editor. I therein see for the first time, I believe, the independ ence of the Academy attacked, with relation to the subject which il has proposed for a pri.e, namely the Abolition of Slavery. It is un '.er the Egis of literary bodies, it is under their protection that the rights of disregarded justice and morality have taken refuge; it is by their support that the civiliza tion of the world moves forwaid, and Government are enlightned. Thus, far from confining itself to a re gard of the subject, as a mere question of political economy, and ente i g simply into a discussion of the principle of 'one man possessing another man,' or tho means whereby dan gerous slaves may be converted into useful citizens, an organized body of persons having the views of the Acade my of Moral Sciences should, as it appears to me, consider the subject, not only as il regards the staves who people the colonies, but as a means of enlightening those governments who still allow the traffic of the blacks, who are thereby given up to outrage and oppression. At all events, a cause mui;t evidently be very bad, w hen any discussion concerning it is so greatly feared by its de fenders. It is with so much more confidence that I address the Academy of Moral Sciences, since it is responsible to it self alone; and if it were impossible for (lie Delegates from Martinique and Gaudaloupe to allow the doctrines in ques tion to pass without protestation, seeing that inactivity would have been, as they sav, a desertion of their dutv. the pnblic can easily estimate Ihe value of their protesta tion oy tne amouut ni their salary. Hippolyte Dr. Saint Anthoine Paris, 6th May, 1839. Important fiiom Canton. Stoppage of the trade With all Joreigncrs. By the ship Omega, Capt. Hil lert, we have Canton dates lo March 25th. They an nounce the stoppage of the trade altogether, and, measures of vigor on the part of the government of China against the deadly trade of opium, which bid fair to be effectual. We give below an extract of a letter from a most respecta ble source, and extracts from Canton papers. The Omega scarcely escaped. A Linguist was sent down to ta'-.e her back but she had discharged her Pilot and got off. Two English ships which weie going out at the same time, were carried back. We give our good wishes to the govern ment of China in its effort to put an end to the importation ol the drug which has made such havoc of the health, hap pincss and lives, of the Chinese. It is an abomination, that for the sake of money making, foreigners should per sist in such a traffic against the paternal efforts of a govern ment, which certainly in this particular see 'S to pro mote the good of its people. The violators of Chinese law, we believe, are almost ail Englishmen. Journal of . Com. Domestic. The Crops. The harvest for small grain is over in Virginia and in the Southern and Western Sta'es, and has been in general more abundant than the harvests of several years past. In the Middle, Northern and Western States, the crops are either just ready for the sickle, or just turning, from these sections of the country the accounts are cheering. In the western part of New York, the wheat is said to be more promising than it has been at the same period frr several years past. In New England the season has been propitious. In Pennsylvania, the harvest has commenced, and crops of Wheat, Oats and Rye are abundant, though in some sec tions of the country the hessiifn fly h& been trouble some. In Maryland, the Wheat crop shas nearly all been har vested, and it appears that it is larger than has been reali zed for some years past. Accounts from all parts of the State concur in reporting the crops .are abundant in quan tity and excellent in quality. In Virginia, attention is now directed to the tobacco and Corn crops. The tobacco crop promises as large a yield aa was ever known in the State. Tha only danger is, that it may be injured in quality by being too forward. The corn crop, generally speaking, is in a most thriving condition; and if it escapes a drought will be most abundant. In some districts the chince bugs, having noth ing to detain them in the wheat fields, have found their way into the Corn, where they are doing great injuryi Pittsburgh Intel.
