The Debates.
No apology, we are sure, will be deemed ne
cessary, for devoting; several numbers of the Voice
mainly to the discussions and documents of the
National Convention. Our first thought was, to
present only an abstract of the debates, but as this
course might give offence to some, we have de
termined to spread out the whole as it came from
the reporter. We bespeak an attentive perusal of
the speeches published to-day, as well ris those
which are to follow. Those of Messrs. Goodell,
Lee, Stanton and Stewart will be found to bo
.especially able, timely and eloquent. The lecture
tof Mr. Scoble, of London, exhibiting the work
ing of freedom in the British colonies is promised
,'by the Emancipator, and will be sought for with
avidity. The Address of the Convention to the
(Citizens of the United States, ought also to be
universally read. And we here respectfully re
quest at the hands of political journalists, of what
ever party, its insertion in their columns.
"The State of Things."
Under the above caption, the editor of the Chron
icle has another chapter on the delinquencies of
the Voice of Freedom the monstrosities of Col.
Miller attacks on " the freedom of the clergy,"
&c. If the editor of the Chronicle and his breth
ren of kindred feelings, could be persuaded to de
vote oncihalf of the time and space now occupied
by them in blazoning the real or supposed faults
of abolitionists, to a consideration of " the state of
things" we mean 3,000,000 " things" according
to the law and religion of the South, we don't
know but the anti-slavery society might dispense
with the labors of such " pestilent fellows" as have
so much disturbed the quiet of the wise and pru
dent, of late. Certain we are that this fault-find
ing about men and means, this din of controversy
about clerical prerogative, and harmony in the
churches, would measurably give place to solemn
discussion and action more befitting " the state of
things" in the American Church at the present
In respect to the controversy between the Rev.
Mr. Ingraham, the Chronicle and Col. Miller, we
have not volunteered a3 the ' champion' of either.
When the Chronicle charged Col. M. with the
avowed intention of "breaking down ministers
and breaking up churches that would not pronounce
his Shibboleth,'' we were assured by Col. M. that
his langaage and meaning had been palpably mis
represented and perverted. That he expressed a
wish and determination to rid the ministry and
the churches of proslaveryism, he freely admitted.
Tliid, ho declared was " the head and front of his
oifending," and that whoever charged him with
any desire or design of waging war against min
isters or churches as such, was guilty of falsehood.
With such assurances, we met the charge of the
Chronicle with a prompt denial, on behalf of the
accused. The Chronicle subsequently published
a. note from Mr. Charles Marsh, purporting to give
some choice expressions, duly dressed up in quo
tations, which expressions, the public were told,
were tantamount to those imputed to Col. Miller
by the Chronicle, as evincive of an intention to
" break down ministers and break up churches
that would not pronounce his Shibboleth." It turns
out, after all, pro-slavery men being judges, that
the terms " breaking down ministers" and " break
ing up churches," were coined in the Chronicle
mint. The bugbear could not be made to assume
an aspect sufficiently frightful without this trifling
draft' upon the editor's imagination. The sly
Jesuitism of the matter has a fair parallel in the
famous effort of the same journal to fasten on M
Garrison the cedit of calling George Washington
" a liar now in hell."
The editor of the Chronicle remarks that " proofs
are accumulating that Col. Miller is not alone in
these intentions," i. e. intentions to " break down
ministers," &c. And who are the accomplices ?
Why, the National Convention at Albany. How
so ? " He was made a Vice President of the Na
tional Convention at Albany "! Who else is guil
ty? The State Anti-Slavery Society, to be sure.
Why ? " Col, Miller, notwithstanding all devel
opements of his doings and intentions, is still lec
turing as an agent of the State Society" ! And
again, " His lectures are honored with an editori
al puff in the last Voice of Freedom" ! and
" his doings and avowed intentions in the premi
ses cannot be regarded otherwise than os theirs" ! !
What an oversight it was that the conservators of
the peace of the churches at the Albany meeting
did not file a protest against that abominable Col.
Miller ! Alas for us, the whole body of 494, and
what is more, their constituents with them, stand
charged with the crime of "breaking down min
isters" no of faithfully rebuking those professed
rninisters of Chri6t who are too proud to take the
part of the poor, outcast victims in the prison
house of slavery !
The Chronicle lakes alarm at our article or last
week, relating to the General Convention, where
in we expressed the hope that the body would con
tend for " as high a standard of ethics as has been
recognized by all consistent politicians for the last
five years." Understand us. Politicians who are
eound abolitionists have for years, in the face of
Doctor W oy'and's book of limitations, pronounced
slavery a sin under all circumstances and in all
places a system involving a combination of all
the moral evil that exists among men. ' They de
clare plainly that slavery comprehends in its scope,
hatred of God, idolatry, profanity, sabbath-break-
disobedience to parents, murder, adultery,
lying and covetousness. Now wo nsk
that the Congregational and Presbyterian Minis
ters of Vermont, in the year 1S39, will pronounce
their solemn judgment upon this complicated inU
quity. If they speak at all, would the Chronicle
have them avoid the grand point of pronouncing
slavery sinful under all circumstances ? Would
the Chronicle advise that the subject be treated as
the merest pecadillo ? For what was the church
instituted for what the ministry ordained, if not
to bear testimony against sin to labor and pray
for its eradication from the earth? We say in
the words of another,
"If in New England, where freedom has loved
to dwell, and where, as the almoner of God's
bounty, she has quenched the people's thirst from
the smitten rock, and made them suck honey out
of the flinty rock, if, in the heart of this free
commonwealth, the ministers of heaven's word
shall, from a blind policy, a faint heart, or a mis
taken sense of duty, refuse to remonstrate against
slavery in our land, one wonld think that nature
itself would speak out; that the forests would
murmur and sigh ; that the rocks would cry out
from the mountain ; that the hearts of these hills
would throb with audible pulsations ; that these
rallies would wail with unsleeping echoes ; and
the broad atmosphere be filled with the cries of
freedom, in agony for the crushed and bleeding
The Rev. Leonard Worcester, wishing to have
Col. Miller's story respecting himself contradict
ed where it had been most heard and credited.
sent a communication on the subject to the. Voice
of Freedom. The champion of " free discussion"
who presides over that paper, would not publish
the slandered minister's vindication of himself.
The readers of the Voice must be kept in the dark
about it. Vt. Chronicle.
Without commenting on the dignified courtesy
of the Chronicle's rebuke, let it suffice to say that
the affair of the " story" has appeared to us, from
its first appearance in the Chronicle, as a studied
attempt to disparage Col. Miller and the cause he
serves, rather than to do away an unfounded ru
mor. Who supposes that Leonard Worcester was
criminally implicated in the alleged gambling fra
cas ? We are surprised that a man of his dis
cernment has been prevailed on to appear in the
papers on so slender a pretext. But we are net
surprised that the Chronicle should seize upon
this small matter with its usual zeal.
The Chronicle's rebuke in this case comes with
a peculiar grace, after having himself utterly re
fused a candid reply to Mr. Ingraham's letter,
written and signed by a member of the executive
committee, brother Holcomb of Brandon.

Exp'osion mid Fire.
To the Editor of the Vermont Chronicle:
Sib, On Wednesday the 27th inst., the store of C. &
R. Ainsworth of East Williamstown, was deslryed by fire
Tho facts are these: There was in the store between the
counter and the door, a hogshead about half full of what
is called " high wines." Two individuals were standing
by this hogshead, one by the head, the other leaning a
gainst the side. While in this position they hoard from
the hogshead a violent hissing noise like that from the
burning of wet powder, while tho individual standing by
the head noticed a blue flame upon its surface. In a mo
ment after the hogshead burst covering the whole floor
with liquid fire. All who were in the store, except two
children, instantly rushed to tho door. There was only
time to rush in again and rescue the two ctildren. This
was done by Mr. 11. Ainsworth and his clerk, Mr. Josiali
Farr, who, in passing through tho fire, were considerably
burned. It was not possible to enter tho lower part of the
store again. The whole building was soon enveloped in
flames. All was burned books, notes, and bank bills.
The loss in store and goods is at least six thousand dol
lars, besides the insurance, which is three thousand four
hundred. The loss on the debts, of which there now re
mains little evidence, must, it is feared, inevitably be
much greater than this. No causa which seems satisfacto
ry is yet assigned for tho explosion of this hogshead. It
is quite certain that no (ire was near it at the time, and
that none had been in the room fur some hours. No liquor
had been drawn from it for more than 24 hours. Can any
one give us any light on this subject ? Do " high wines"
ever ignite spontaneously .'
This pnrt'cular account is deemed necessary, since it is
known that erroneous statements concerning this event
huve gone abroad in the community.
Respectfully yours, A Royce.

From the National Intelligencer.
The Hornet Again. The Army and Navy Chrrnicle
notices a story which has obtained general circulation
founded on a letter from Washington, published originally
in the Charleston Courier, and copied extensively in oth
cr papers. The amount of the storv is, that an individual
in Washington has offered to make disclosures in consider
ation of a pecuniary compensation for himself and pardon
for a friend, that the Hornet survived the-gale in which
she is generally believed to have been lost, and was subse
quently destroyed by conspirators, bribed by a foreign Gov
Tho Chronicle says, " that there is an individual. in
Washington who has offered to make disclosures, is true
enough; but that any faith was placed in his protended
story, or that it ' has led to frequent and long deliberation
is utterly untrue. The individual in question has been
convicted of a criminal offence, and probably hoped to es
cape punishment hy pretending revelations of the fate of
a gallant vessel and her crew, which must remain shroud
ed in mystery until thj day of judgment. '1 he subject
has never been oflicially before the Navy lioard, and only
once formed tho topic of a few moments' conversation, but
was dismissed as unworthy of a serious thought.
Foreign fews
Latest from Mexico.
There have been two late arrivals at New Orleans from
Mexico. One bringing aocounts from Matamoras to the
last week in July; and the other furnishing news from
Tampico to the first of August.
By the way of Matamoras, we learn that general Lemns
had obtained arms and amunition, and was at the head of
2000 Federalists at Monclovia, on the 24th of July, and
intended to march on Wonlery, where the Centralist Gen
eral Canalzo was doing nothing, in cojisequence of tho fee
bleness of his forces.
The town of Matamoras was still considered as in a stale
of siege. Little or nothing was doing in the business line
and the government officers wero quarrelling among them
The latest Tampico paper is dated July 27. Things re
mained quiet, and mercantile business was yerv good.
There was a report among the English merchants, that Mr,
Packenham would settle the disputo between Mexico and

by the way of Tampico. This report had created dissatis
On tho 17th of July, Bustamente entered the capitol of
Mexico, and is said to have been received with gladness.
He issued a manifesto on the occasion, which may be ter
med non-eommittnl, or words with no meaning.
The Captain of the vessel from Matamoras states that
the Mexicans there occasionally boasted of what they in
tended to do in Texas, as soon as Lemus should be put
down. Mexico, tliey said, would send twenty thousand
men to chase back the intruders over the Sabine. These
givings out do not agree with the opinions entertained by
the English in Mexico. The latter think that John Bull
will be able to pa'ch up a peace, from which he may prom
ise himself some important advantages.
Sickness was rather prevalent at Tampico.
The steam packet Liverpool, Captain Favrer, arrived at
an early hour this morning. We havo received by her
several files of foreign papers comprising Liverpool to the
1st of August, London to tho evening of the 31st of July
all inclusive.
Among other interesting news by the Liverpool we have
intelligence of the deaths of Sultan ftlahmoud, Lady ies
tor Stanhope, and Admiral Sir Isaac Collin.
Birmingham has again been the scene of alarming dis
turbances more alarming than any of previous occur
rence. On the night of tho 19lh of July tho town was for
some hours completely at tho mercy of the rioters. A body
of about 500 attacked the prison, tho windows of which
they demolished, without interruption from the police who
were instructed not to act without ordors from tho magis
Having done thoir work here, tho rioters next attacked
along range of buildings occupied by Messrs. Bourne, the
windows of which they also broke to pieces; and then,
dividing into smaller parties, commenced more serious do
vaslalion. They burst into the doors and flung the con
tents of the buiiding, consisting of groceries into the
Then they set fire to the ware house, and also to that of
a Mr. Leggett, and both were destroyed.
. While these houses wero burning, the rioters attacked
and broke into many stores and shops, pillaging and des
troying every thing they could lay their hands on.
Thus mattors continued until half-past 10, when strong
bodies of the police and military arrived, and the rioters
took to flight.
The operations of the chartists were violent and alarm
ing also at Leeds, Stockport and other places.
Tho government had in consequence of thoso events
brought forward a proposition for the increase of the army,
to the extent of 6000 men; and also for the establishment
of a police force at Birmingham.
Tho prospects of the harvest throughout England were
good, but not extraordinary.
Mr. Webstor made a great speech at the agricultural
dinner in Oxford, producing an immense sensation.
Tho Canadian prisoners, John G. Parker and eight oth
ers, were released, somewhere about the 12th or 13th of
July. Thoso released were J, G. Parker, R. Wixo:i, W.
Alves, Finl'ay Malcolm, Leonard Watsor, J. Brown, Ira
Anderson and Paul Bedford. J.inna W. Miller and John
Grant yet remained in prison, but it was thought they also
would be released.
The Turkish and Egyptian hostilities have been brought
to a speedy close. WVbout the 221 of June the armies came

sion. To add to the disasters of tho new Sultan.it appears
that wide-spread disaffection exists among his highest of
ficers, civil aud military; it is even said that tho admiral
of his fleet has made unequivocal overtures to the Pacha
of Egypt, and that the Sultan's new divan was disposad to
follow the example.
