The laws of onr country requiru the
rendition of the fug;tive-s!avb to his
master. But J mi talk ot hiyhtr law.
What is the higher lawl ltt us
examine. I know of no law higher
than oars other than the laws of God,
which must be tlio "higher law."
Well, let us see how far slavery it
condemned by it.
First, Oon. Stli chapter, 25 to 2TL
Tertea, where INoali ropliuticaliy
pronounces upon Cuiihii tlio sentuno
that a servant of servants shall he he
unto his brethren; Hnd repeats that
he shall e the servants ot bhein, and
alao ul Japhet. Tbo next cu"o wi
will ruler to is that ol liaar, barah
handumid (Qen. 19.) She. according
to Qallatiatia, i'U chapter, 22 to 31'ii
verao, was u bond woiuun, and iur
son, which she buroeveii to Abraliam,
partook Ot the same relation wl iuh
she bcre in the family, that ot bon
dage-, and therefore could not be heir
with Isaac, the son of the fruo woman.
When II agar had Add from the face
of ourah, being hardly used bv her.
and the angel ot the Lord had fonnd
her, did be say, "Ilagar, you Hre right
in fleeing Irora bonJage, and 1 w.ll
djrect you so that you may escape
without being retaken by y.ur ma
ter." Ni. ha aaid, "lletum to lliy
iniatrtBS and snbmit thyself under li.r
hand." 1 ask, was the angel an
Abolitionist I 1 think not.
The next that 1 will notice is in
Leviticus, 25th chapter, 39 to 43th
verse. This goea to show thed.tfcr-
ence between tlio hired fcrvaut and
the boud servant. Lttnuv oiu take
his Bible and read tlio above verges,
and if he will nt admit thatthe"e
were hired nervunW and bmd iuivm u
for life, and their children uftur them,
why, then. I would despair o cotivin
cing tbeiu of anything So wild are
those person on their 'avorito theory
that all men are bom fruo and inn a'
thiit tliev would sooner see the Weeks
banished back to their barbarous and
wretcbfcd state in Africa, or driveiito
Canada to perish by froez:ng or starv
ation, than to ee th; evidutiuo of tliu
lalsity ot their theory o plainly before
them. Although I bavu nut noticed
the il)('-twetitieth part ol' lite pro l
