THE VOICE OP FREEDOM
is there the interest of all to get rid of this popula
tion." Af. Rep. Vol. XIV. p. 45.
Notwithstanding these open, frank, and not to lie
misunderstood, declarations, put forth from time
to time in the official documents of this society
yet we are gravely told by such men ns Elliot Cres
son that those men who are a " curse and a pest to
every society in the midst of which they areloca
ted," are sent out ns so many missionaries to re
generate and bless Africa, and that the object of
the society is to emancipate slaves and finally
demolish the whole institution of slavery. It is
not, however, until this unfortunate dog crosses
Mason's and Dixon's line in his journey north
that he becomes weary and " turns over," to
howl the dirge of slavery abolished in prospect,
and Africa civilized, christianized and saved thro
the influence of the " vilest miscreant3 that ever
disgraced our world," the free people of color
The principal impressions made on my mind in
listening to Mr. Cresson's lecture, were.
1st. That nearly all the intelligence and piety
that our country affords is to be found among col
onizationists of the north and slaveholders of the
(outh.
2d. That if the good people of this country woul
unite their efforts they might ultimately succeed
in driving the colored population to Africa.
3d. " That if the colored man stays within see,
ing or smelling distance, we will not like him
we will degrade and oppress him, but if he wil
j;o three or four thousand miles from us, we wil
love him as a fellow man and a brother; and
when he returns to this country for a short visit
we will receive him, and respect him, and when
lie returns we will love him better still.
4th. That the abolitionists are the most addle-
j ated miserable libellers that there are on earth
(if we except, perhaps, the free people of color.)
Mr. Cresson, in his lecture and after it, made
fiequent boast that he worked without wages, and
that it was sheer benevolence to the colored man
that prompted him to action, or words to this a"
mount. Now, be it known to all, that Elliot Cres
son owns a large interest in the colony at Bassa
Cove, and that it is for his pecuniary interest to
get emigrants to go there and that every dollar
he raises in '.he free north to send persons to his
colony is placing money in his own pocket.' Let
Mr. Cresson deny this if he can. Mr. Cresson
stated in his lecture that several states which he
nnmedand among the rest Virginia, were upon the
point of emancipating their slaves, when there
passed over our country a terrible tornado, (mean
ing, I suppose, the Anti-Slavery excitement) which
produced a chill on the south, and had probably
thrown back the work of emancipation halfa cen
tury. Now, I defy Mr. Cresson to show that
Virginia was doing the least thing towards eman
cipating her slaves when the A. S. Society sprung
into existence that- there had been a discussion
in the Virginia legislature on the subject, I am well
nware but the whole matter was put to rest by
a vote of the legislature before the abolition ex
citement had assumed any considerable import
ance in the country. And now I call on Mr. Cres
son to give the public something besides his mere
ipse dixet to show that the Anti-Slavery excitement
had the least influence in determining the vote of
the Virginia legislature in favor of continued slave
ry in 1832. And if Mr. Cressun refuses to come
forward with his proof, chapter and verse, on this
subject, he will stand before the people of Ver
mont as the public asserter of that which is noto
riously false and calculated to mislead the un
suspecting. Mr. C. repudiated the idea that guns,
powder, rum, &c. were taken into their colony,
and represented those who use these things as a
" hellish crew." Now, gentle reader, peruse the
following, and then ask whether Mr. C. truly rep
resented the colonists as a " hellish crew," or not.
From the African Repository, for July, 1837.
" Military Defence. ' We acknowledge,' says
the Colonization Herald, ' the following articles
received by the Commissioners at Bassa Cove,
Mr. Cresson's own colony from Captain J. J.
Nicholson, commander of the Frigate Potomac,
bbl. common powder, 1 bbl. priming powder, 6
muskets, 6 pistols, 2 blunderbusses, 20 lbs. match
rope, 1 ensign, 300 musket balls, 90 small bags
canister shot, 800 musket cr tridges, 150 pistol
oatridges, 8 papers mustard seed."
Most excellent articles these, for a missionary
Matioa. Wonder if the natives did not thank God
lor sending such a lovely supply df " facts and ar
guments" to the colonists, through the influence of
which they are to be converted to Christianity ?
Mr. Cresson proceeded to answer objections
which he was understood to say, were made a
gainst the colonization society by anti-colonization
agents in Vt. Though I have been an agent of
the A- S. Society for nearly three years, and have
travelled in seven different states and the Queen's
dominions, yet I have never heard some of the
objections made which Mr. C. labored so hard to
, answer. Nor do I believe, that he ever heard
them made by any person who is worthy of a
passing notice any thing, however, for effect.
" At the close of the services, a something was
read, I hardly know what to call it, perhaps a con
stitution, and an invitation given for all who were
friendly to the organization of a Colonization So
ciety, to tanry for that purpose some six or eight
lingered for a few moments, a part of whom at
least, were abolitionists, when all retired, as at
Barnard the evening previous, and no society was
formed. The fact is, it is too late in the day, for
even Mr. Cresson to thrust down the throats of
the people of Vermont such a notorious humbug
as African colonization.
I will close my protracted remarks by saying
that never-no never have I found so bitter an
enemy of abolitionism, and perhaps I might say
abolitionists as Mr Cresson. I should think that
the "bitterness of death was in his heart," and in
his denunciations of the abolitionists, he is any
thing but courteous, decent or kind, and the only
apnlegy I can make for him is that his poor sue
cess in this State, probably stirs up all the worst
passions of his nature and he gives vent to all he
feels The Lord pity him, and save the colored
man from the pangs of colonization.
Yours in the cause of equal rights,
G. BECKLEY.
On my Way to Michigan, Sept. 25, 1S39.
Thaddeus Stevens.
The Emancipator has a letter from an agent in
Pennsylvania, giving a clever account of a smal
pro-slavery outbreak in the borough of Gettys
burg!, the residence of Thaddeus Stevens. The
conduct of Mr. S. on the occasion shows that his
heart was made after a large pattern.
'At an early hour a large and highly respect
able audience, made up of people of town and
country, assembled. Shortly after I took mv
seat, previous to commencing my lecture, Thade
deus Stevens Esq., came forward and took his
seat beside me; this he did, as I afterwards ascer
tained, with the view of maintaining order, and
protecting me from any disturbance during the
meeting. The benefits of this moovement I had
soon occasion to feel, for scarcely had I comraeii'
ced my lecture, when some rowdies outside the
door began to let fly the eggs. At once Mr.
Stevens arose and 'hoped some would seize the
miscreant that threw, and bring him forward
where he could be seen.' 'It is only some black
guard, interrupted a voieelrom some who stood
near the door. I know he is a blackguard,' said
Mr. btevens, 'but 1 see no reason why black
guards should be allowed to roam at larce, and
with impunity disturb quiet and respectable citi-
s. liring him before me, and 1 pledge you
that I will prosecute the scoundrel to the very
aoor or tne penetentiary, H it should cost the last
dollar I have in the world." Order was restored
and I resumed my discourse. A few ejnrs and
other missiles were thrown afterwards, but were
not sufficiently well aimed to occasion me any
annoyance. Throughout my lecture, which contin
ued about an hour and a half, there was the ut'
most quiet and attention manifested by the audi'
ence- 1 he disposition to create a disturbance was
confined to two of three of the basest fellows of the
town.
When I concluded, Mr. Stevens moved the ap
pointment ot a chairman ol the meeting, for the
purpose of offering a resolution which he held in
his hand. A gentleman was accordingly called
to the chair, and Mr. S. offered the following res
olution, which was carried unanimously
' Resolved, That we have seen with deeo mor
tification and indignant feelings, the conduct of a
few unprincipled and unblushing blackguards in
ttempting to disturb the peace of such of our fel-
ow citizens, as had assembled to hear a discus
sion upon slavery.'
When this was done another individual from
an opposite part of the house, cried out, that " as
Chief Burgess of the bourough of Gettysburg, he
would give the sum of $10, for the discovery of
any one engaged in the attempt that evening to
disturb the meeting." ' I will add $50 more out
of my own pocket," said Mr. Stevens. The meet
ing then adjourned.
Hereafter no one need fear in Gettysburc;h, any
interruption in the exercise of his right 'freely to
speak on any subject.' "
