who was stationed nt Montserrat. Ha spent the
fivo years previous to July, Jivso, among the Oat- frees in Africa. "I inquired of Mr. S.," says Mr. K., "what lie thought of uniting trading colonies with missionary stations. I shall lonjf remember the 1 holy indignation' of his look and voice when he replied. The sentences inclosed in parenthe sis are his very words, which nre loo deeply im pressed on my mind ever to be lorgotten. (' You might as well think to ally the bottomless pit With the New Jerusalem. It is mingling light and darkness. It is attempting to do the work 01 God through ;he aid and agency of batan. ) " He says the commerce carried on with the natives is a system of deception and fraud. The conduct 01 tne traders creates suspicion anujeaiuus ies against all white men, and obstacles almost insurmountable nre thus thrown in the way of iV missionary. His color is the same as that of the traders, his religion is of the sams name, and his language is the same. The hearts of the natives nre shut against him." Mr. Clay said that every colonist is a missiona ry, not to preach merely, but to enforce the claims of religion by example. And yet, in regard to the free people of color, he, in the same speech, pronounced them the vilestof the whole population, worse than the slaves. " What sort of Christiani ty," asked C. C. Burleigh, " wilPSuch men intro duce into Africa ? . . . We cannot Christianize men into n better religion than we have got ourselves. Until, then, we see that the religion of the United States has put down the slave prisons in the city of Washington, and in Alexandria until it has opened the prison doors of the captive in this land lias proclaimed liberty to all the inhabitants there of, we cannot see that this same Christianity is going to abolish slavery in Africa." " Shall the Christianity of one conlinrnt make it the home of oppression, and yet make another continent the home of freedom ? If we should convert the native Africans to our Christianity in the way proposed, why should they not ant as we do ? Why should our Christianity make them any belter than it does us ? . . . Why should we expect that Christians will be better made in Af rica than in America?. . . The fact is, until this nation is brought back to the primitive and pure Christianity, vain is the attempt to convert Africa to such n Christianity, by rreans of a slave-holding and slave-trading Christianity." To the Vermont Mercury we would say, that its disclaimer as to Mr. Cresson's interest in the Bassa Cove Colony, is not quite broad enough. Strange as it may seem to the Mercury, we sup pose a man may have a pecuniary interest in that Colony without possessing lands therein. We say again, that we understand our correspondent to have referred to Mr. C's interest by way of trade. Mr. Beckley is now absent in Michigan ; but we see no occasion, at present, for the proof, since the change has not been met even by an ex plicit denial. For the Voice of Freedom. Meeting at Townshcnd. The Quarterly Convention of the Vermont A. S. Society met at East Townshend, at 9 A. M., Nov. 20, and was organized by choosing Hon. W. R. Shafter, Chairman, and Rev. II. N. Graves, Secretary. Hon. W. R. Ranney, Rev. Mr. Bur rows, Rev. J. Parsons, Hon. C. Phelps and J. McM. Shafter were appointed a committee to pre pare business for the Convention. The following Preamble and Resolutions were reported and unan imously adopted. Preamble. It is the intention of all philanthrop ic governments to secure, next to their perpetuity, the happiness of their own citizens, and of the world, and while all wish to endure, it is Free or Democratic communities alone that would do so through the intelligence and morality of their con stituent members. Yet, great as are the induce ments to knowledge and virtue, it is not to be con cealed that in Republics, where offices are elective and all have a share in the entire concerns of gov ernment, the excitement of party politics and local interest, tend to obscure and degrade those great First Principles, that are the only safe guards of popular liberty. It is believed we can secure to ourselves safety at home or respect abroad only by a strict and constant observance of our great Re publican principle, " That all men arc created free," and are " equally entitled to the enjoyment of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." While such should be the rule in order to gain for our pro testations of attachment to liberty much credit ; it is not to be denied that the American Republic now occupies towards the rest of the nations a pe culiar and before unheard-of position. In its ori igin and constitution it contains a denial of Bar onial privileges, and of the 'Divine Right of Kings," and yet it retains and fosters in its midst an institution which holds tmd treats men as prop erty by a tenure more strict than that of ancient villanage and which? is without a paral lel in the history of the civilized world. We consider that the institution of slavery as it exists with us, tends to destroy and does materially les sen the influence of our great experiment of self government upon the progress of liberty and the acknowledgment of the " rights of man" through out the despotic world. Nor do we forget that pe culiar as is the position of the Republic in regard to other nations, its policy as connected with slavery is no less singular in regard to the citizens cf our own. The slave, as be tween his master and himself, is regarded merely ns property, while his personality as between the master and the rest of the community, forms the basis of representation ; thus making his human ity in the only place where it is recognized, a reason and a means of the moio deeply injuring and oppressing him. Anti-republican as was this T II coalition at its outset, its practical workings have only the more fully developed its pernicious ten dency, and have shown that the spirit of slavery, as it is the antagonist of liberty, so it is all-grasping and never will be quieted until it has reduced the laborer of all colors to an entire subjection to the aristocratic few. With such sentiments, we cannot but recognize the expediency of voluntary associations which have for their object the main tenance and promulgation of the doctrines of II u man Rights, and the exposure arid conibnlting of oppression wherever it may found. Therfore, Resolved, 1st. That the Anti-Slave ry Society, as it advances and maintains the true doctrines of ethics and political economy; as it opposes itself lo one of the greatest moral and po litical evils of all times ; so it is worthy of the ap probation and co-operation of every moralist and consistent republican. 2d. Resolved, That it is as inconsistent for abo litionists, not to carry out their principles by cor responding action, as it is for Christians to neglect the most apparent dutie3 of their profession. 3d. Resolved, That religious, moral and politi cal power are indispensable in the accomplishment of this noble and philanthropic enterprise and that the "Peculiar Institution" cannot long withstand their united influence. 4th. Resolved, That viewing the Colonization Society as a missionary enterprise, as having for its object the Christianization of Africa, we wish it success, and only hope that for the future it will entertain and manifest the same Christian solid tudo for the happiness of our colored population, which it so loudly professes to feel for the for eigner. 5th. Resolved, That the abolition of slavery furnishes the only efficient guarantee against the Foreign Slave Trade. 6th. Resolved, That the abolition of slavery in the British West Indies furnishes an additional laurel to the British crown, and teaches a lesson in moral ethics which our Republic seems slow to learn. 7th. Resolved, That universal emancipation must and will precede millenial glory, and its calls are imperious upon ministers and churches to take the lead in this enterprise. 8th. Resolved, That prejudice on account of color is really a prejudice against the law of Na- ure and Nature's God, therefore a great sin. 9ih. Resolved, That the Christian law of kind ness and love to enemies does not authorize re sistance to injury, and the slave can alone look to the declaration, " Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord." The foregoing Preamble and Resolutions were ably and eloquently supported by Hon. W. R. Ranney, Hon. C. Phelps, Rev. Messrs. Burrow? and Upham, Mr. J. McM. Shafter, and others, W. R.

England has reduced the pos tage so that a letter may be sent to any part of the kingdom for a penny ; and she finds her reve nue rather increased than diminished by it. So we should find it with us, if the greatest amount K VOICE OF FREEDOM chargeable on a single letter to any part of the Union was only six cents. Seth M, Gates uud Geirit Smith. We recently published an admonitory letter from Gerrit Smith, Esq;, to Hon. Seth M. Gates, member of Congress from the Genesee District, in New York.- The Le Roy Gazette, Extra, brings us a lengthy letter from Mr. Gates, in re ply. The following paragraph, will suffice lo show, on what grounds Mr. Gates endeavors to vindicate his course : "I acknowledge that I am a Whig, was nom inated as such, and feel a deep interest in the prominent measures of which that party are the known advocates : and after the generous confi dence the Whigs of Genesee have been pleased to repose in me, I should indeed consider myself "blind to truth and duty, basely to turn my back upon their interests, unless I had a very different cause for it, than any which has yetoccured. " You speak "uf the "defection in the year 1836, in the ranks of abolition," and of its cruel influ ence on the cause of the slave, as matters conceded and certain. Your remarks may' he suited to the meridian of Madison, but I deny that they are to Genesee. We are conscious of 110 such general defection. And I think 1 may safely say, that a very vast majority, if not "nineteen twentieths" of the abolitionists of Genesee, stili believe that they conscientiously discharged their duty lo the slave and their country in the exercise of the elective franchise last fall; and most of those who do not believe so, so far as I know, are men who, like yourself seem to have become disgus ted with all political parties, and feel little inter est in any except abolition politics. " In stating the number so great, I huve not forgotten, sir, the last fall convention at Warsaw, where I met you, and with others ineflectually re sisted your resolution calling upon the abolition ists of Genesee to repent of voting for a ticket, which, through the tolerence and liberality of the Whigs, had upon it a Lieutenant Governor, n Senator, two members of Congress, and nt least three out of four members of Assembly, all then supposed to be consistent abolitionists, and a Gov ernor, to say the least, decidedly more liberal and tolerant in his views than the candidate opposed to him, and whose answer to the interrogatories, you yourself was pleased to write me after the delate, you found upon a fresh examination, 'was in truth more anti-slavery than you was aware of.' I do not forget, sir, that a majority of the meeting voted to repent, not only for themselves, but certainly with great generosity for the rest of the county; but so far as I have ever heard, it came very generally to be considered a work of su pererogation, never spread, and judging from the result of our late convention, I imagine that it has been retrograde. Why, sir, should we all come to practice what my friend Chaplin, face tiously calls the 'sublime of abolition,' throw away our votes until the political parties are driven to the necessity of selecting their candidates from our truest men, we can hope but for little improve ment upon the ticket for which the abolitionists of Genesee supposed themselves to be voting last fall; however some of us are like to disappoint their and your expectations. Then, ns now, they maybe deceived. It is true Governor Seward's answer was not what I would gladly have had it; but it was in many respects 'decidedly anti-slavery,' and his public life Jhas evinced a heroic devo tion to the 'supremacy of the laws,' an unyield ing resistance to the organized rights of an humble citizen, and a heart deeply imbued with the great foundation principles of liberty and equal rights. His conduct since his election has increased, rather than diminished the confidence reposed in him, and I am informed in his late letter to the Governor of Virginia, among other things deci dedly favorable to human rights, he has distinctly avowed the great fundaments; onii-slavery princi pie that 'man cannot hold properly in man.' Was it nothing, sir, to secure the election of such a man, in the place of one who recommended the enact ment of laws lo prohibit anti-slavery publications ! Was nothing accomplished for the slave in electing to the popular branch of our Legisla ture, men who passed an act giving to the fugi tive Irom slavery, the right of trial by jury, in the place of men decidedly opposed to it, who had joined hands and coalesced with a licentious nnd infidel philosopher, with a wild and fanatical ng- rarianism, and haul voted the Ministers ol the Most High, and their prayers out of the halls of legislation ! " There may have been pro-slavery men anion"' the Whigs at the last Legislature, but for none of them am I conscious of having voted, and yet I was expected to evince a penitent sense ofmy per nicious error, of my folly and sin, and hereafter to number myself wiih those who do not vole pro- slavery ! "I confess I voted for Mr. Seward, and I am absolutely so blind notwithstanding all the light which has bsen shed upon the subject, as to he very well satisfied with that vole. You, sir, I re member, warned ns not to vote for him, but your self voted and called earnestly upon others to vote for Mr. Bradish. Since that vote, sir, Mr. Sew ard has taken new and strong ground in fa vor of human rights, while all I have since heard from Mr. Bradish, is, that he has made a very hand some contribution to ihtxlQireenof all HvmltigsAhe COLON l.AATION SOCIETY, a society which you regard as a main pillar in the Temple of Slavery. I would, with perfect good humor, en quire, whether, if you insist upon my taking the 'Stool of Repentance for voting fur the former, you could not with some propriety bear mc com pany for voting for the latter? I can hardly ven ture to predict what effect such an example, with the prospect of such company, would have upon me." Georgia and Maine. The Legislature of Maine having "declined taking any measure to give satisfaction to the State of Georgia for the violation of its constitutional rights, by the refusal of Governor Dunlapand Governor Kent to deliv er up to its authorities upon their demand the fu gitives from its justice, Fhilbrook and Kellerarr," Governor Gilmer says the latter State will be jus tified in declaring by law, that all citizvns of Maine who may come within its jurisdiction on board of any vessel as owners, oflkers or mari ners, shall bo considered as doing so with the in tent to commit the crime of seducing the negro slaves from their owners, and he dealt wilh accor dingly by the officers of justice. Eah ! Imvortant from Washington'. Extract of a Metter from an officer in the Army to the Editor of the Courier and Enquirer : " We are on the eve of another Indian War, likely to prove more expensive, as well as des tructive to human life than the mismanaged and shamefully protracted War of Florida. You are aware of the dastardly feud that existed between the Ross and Rridge parties of Indians, growing out of the treaty made through the agency of one Schermerhorii w ith the Government. The infa my of this treaty was exposed in Congress; since that time great animosity has existed between these? two parties, which has been increasing, un til the death of Ridge was the result. The Government demanded those engaged in this murder, which has created great excitement among the Indian, thiv flame has been fanned by some Semiiiolcs sent from Florida, and great appn.'heiis-ioiis are t-nlertnincd kat war should break out among them and spread among the oth er tribes ere it can be checked. " An express has been received from Fort Gibson setting forth the state of things, and the exposed condition of the whites to the numerous tribes of Indians that the policy of this govern ment has concentrated on the spot. Should all the tribes of Indians w est of the Mississippi unite against the whiles, we shuuld then have an Indi an war more fatal in its cousequences than any that has been waged for the las, half century. Fathet and Son both elected! It is conceded we believe, by both parties, that ihe venerable Seth Sphaghe, and his son, Se'th SrnAcui?, Jr., are both elected to theSenalc from Plymouth coun ty ; the former as a democrat, the latter as a whig but both as abolitionists. The son, therefore, has not beaten the father, neither has the father hcalcn the sou; hut both together htxve beaten the peo -slavery voters of the county. Liberator. ORDINATIONS.
