Rain Ioco accidents narrow a a vening train of cars on the Bellefontaine Road on last tuesday night was thrown off the track about Pine and a half Miles we St of Anderson by running Over a cow which was lying on the track. At this Point the fill in the Grade is 7 or 8 feet Down which the locomotive went a by was thrown upon its Side carrying with it the Engineer and firemen who marvelous As it May seem were not seriously injured. Fortunately the locomotive became detached from the baggage car which a amp peeled off on the opposite Side the hid wheels remaining p n the Grade. There were two passenger cars both of which were thrown of Quot the Tracis but not Omar the Grade. None of the passengers received any i Jirry. The engine the baggage car and one of the passenger cars received some damage but not to a very great amount. The train was detained from o Cowk till o clock Audi arrived in this City at 5 o clock wednesday a morning. We were along at the time it was our first experience in Railroad accidents. We have no taste for r repetition of it though this May be ci4.ied one of the Quot fortunate id Quot the time set for the trial of John Freeman now lying in the Marion county jail on the charge of being a fugitive slave is monday aug 2?, two weeks from next monday. To cd stats have received some communications in regard to Freeman s Case which we conceive were written under a misapprehension of the facts in the Rase and we have therefore thought Best not to publish them though Many things in them Are Well Wolf h. Their very midst. Quot Wolf readier Tjit commits Sueh havoc Les on Sheet lds so let no the norther no frightened about a profit Betsij less a interest like Quot St. Jess Quot and a ,5ew Otter Northern men in that Dii Itie Anlian 19 v Walt South divinely held to divine service. I of any of our riders have any such interest let Bim a a or with trem Lirag and tremble with tear tor it is avowed by. A new Orleans correspondent of a Natchez paper that tie Wolf is in that very sheep fold. Yes Quot the Wolf Quot abolition he avers Quot is in our very we have no doubt of the truth of this. We have abundant evidence that anti slavery senti Jent is constantly increasing in the Slavco holding states. Not As rapidly to be san e As we could wish but quite As rapidly As we could expect. But hear this new Orleans writer Quot we talk of the abolitionists of the North and deprecate any movement on their part having even Remote allusion to Southern institutions As though the Wolf were not in our very midst. New Orleans is the hot bed of anti slavery from whence much of the abuse and Misri pro sen tation found in the Northern papers have their origin and where the material for such books As Uncle Tom s Cabin Are manufactured to order. The origin of this May be traced to that system of amalgamation which has been practice Ever since slaver of was known in Louisiana and though we recognize in the or Esprit tone of Public morals a More refined and cultivated taste than prevailed Here thirty years ag6, yet it is a lamentable truth that men occupying High and responsible positions Are obnoxious to he charge of living in open concubinage with slaves and free negroes. When such is the Case it is very difficult to arrest an evil that is daily growing and strengthening under such fostering influences. Another evil and one which should be eradicated Root and Branch May be traced to the schools established for the education of free negroes but where the slaves Are also permitted to receive the rudiments of an education which so far from being a Benefit. usually a curse to them. But this is nut All. The negroes have erected a Large Brick Church styled u e Quot african methodist episcopal Church Quot which is under the control of a negro Bishop and where tie services Are a of ruled by a Milgro minister in direct violation of the Laws or the state. 1 take pleasure in saying that this Church has no connect huh whatever with the Methot St Church but is of a fungus growth composed chiefly of secessionists from that religious denomination. Bishop Allen of Philadelphia occasionally visits this City to look after the fortunes of his Black Ilock and no doubt infuses into them a spirit of to the Whites and counsels them against holding any Intercourse with the hated and despised race that has so Long tyrannize Over the descendants of Ham. The negroes both free and slaves have their benevolent associations their widows charitable society burying society and various other societies where such As complain whether justly or not of unnatural from a hard taskmaster Are entitled to such assistance As the state of the funds and the necessities of the applicant would seem to now what in Zzz the state Sentinel say Wolf Down there that is snapping at the chains that bind these sacred sheep with danger in time of biting them off Only think of the Quot lamentable truth Quot at the descendants of these Quot men occupying High and responsible positions Quot should desire the Freedom enjoyed by their paternal ancestors that they should Geek knowledge that they should erect a Quot Large Brick Church Quot and should worship god Quot in direct violation of tie Laws of the state Quot that Bishop Allen of Philadelphia should visit that Quot City to watch after the fortunes of his Black flock that negroes both free and slaves should Quot have to Weir benevolent associations their widows Chi irritable society burying society Quot <fcc., a fee. Verily is not that a terrible Viola 1 wherever negroes whether Bond or free give any indications of manhood the divine institution is in danger. Flowing in the Navy. In the letter addressed to Commodore Mckeever by the under officers of the u. S. Frigate Quot Congress Quot lately returned to new York from a cruise a of three years during which no flogging was inflicted they say Quot Many of us Are old men of oarsmen the most of whose years As sailors have been spent in the Navy while a majority of the rest of us have served in other ships but however Well we May have been satisfied before we must say we have never known a ship like the Quot Congress Quot for kind and considerate treatment and for every attention to our Comfort and welfare of which life on Board a Man of War admits. We have been treated As men who have minds and hearts like other men treated in a manner to Lead us to respect ourselves and thus to Deport ourselves so As to Lead others to us. We Hope and believe that our conduct As ship s company has been such As to show that we appreciate the kindness we have received by the promptness and efficiency with which we have performed our duty and by the constantly increasing Good discipline order and sobriety that have prevailed on Board. We Are proud in the belief that we have shown to the officers of the Many foreign ships that we have fallen in with that the Quot Congress Quot has not been surpassed by any other ship in the quickness and skill with which her Canvas has been handled or tiie precision of aim and strength of Arm with which her batteries have been exercised. We Are thankful for All the kindness we have received from those in Coinman of us. We Are proud of our ship and proud of the Flag she bears and expressing the Good will we feel to you sir. And All our officers we would say that should you in any time after again hoist a Broad Penant you will find Many of our number hastening to place ourselves beneath it in the Confidence of a Happy a Riim under your these remarks seem to show pretty conclusively that discipline and subordination can be maintained in the Nav without a resort to the lash. reply to the fling of the Washington Union that Quot the n. A evening Post is in the receipt of no patronage from the government Quot the Post quotes Johnson s definition of a Patron As Quot one who countenances supports or protects commonly a wretch who supports with insolence and is paid with flattery Quot and adds Quot the pleasure of being patronized we leave to such pants As the Union which admits that it looks upon official patronage As a Peculiar happiness and taunts us with not being patronized As if it were a crime. In this tie Union Only repeats ill different language the. Jeers which the slaves of the South sometimes cast upon their coloured Brethren who Are free of you poor Hebbel you got no Mas a Quot a woman Wai Kiko against , called by the Mantic name of miss Kate Irvine has commenced the arduous task of walking eight Hundred Miles in As Many consecutive hours for it is said a bet of �500. The feat was begun at the Barrack tavern gardens on . J wednesday last., the lady pedestrian seems to say Wijt your be i Bont thirty yrs of a tall and of rather spirit of tile press. We have already made extracts from a it or exchanges to indicate the feeling abroad in regard to the Caso of John Freeman we might Lave made Many More to the same purport. Except the Organ of John a Robi amp son we have noticed no paper that justifies or in any Way apologises for tie extraordinary course of Quot the claimant and More especially of the marshal. We add a few More this week to what we have already copied. The democratic Banner of new Castle. Democrat As it is of the marshal Quot we copy an account of some recent trans actions in reference to the Case of Freeman at Indianapolis. The use transactions must strike every Reader with astonishment and a indignation. Astonishment that such an outrage could be committed in this age and country and indignation at the Wanton usurpation of authority. We submit that the marshal has no Legal Power to sustain his conduct. The fugitive slave Law does not Sanction such proceedings. Objectionable As some of the details of that Law Are it contains no such dark and reprehensible feature As this. It requires no such it it rage to be committed upon Justice and humanity. Such occurrences As these must necessarily add much strength to the organization of the free soil party. They Are Strong weapons and will not be suffered to Rusi in their hands. The advocates of the finality of the fugitive Safe Slaw will lose much ground in consequence of the proceedings in the Freeman Case. We do not believe that these unwarrantable proc Edings should be charged against the Law itself but it will be done and with great effect too in spite of All defense or apology. And if the next congressional election shall Send to Congress a delegation United in favor of repealing or at least amending the fugitive slave Law the pro slavery men of this state will see the legitimate fruit of the seed planted at the South Bend Register whig says Quot the slave . Ketcham one of Freeman s counsel has returned from Georgia with abundant testimony that his client is a free Man. He is remembered Well at his old Resi a Lenic and fifty persons thereabouts who know him All declare him free. A Fine old gentleman a slaveholder Lias made the journey to Indianapolis to testify As to his identity with the Freeman who lived in Georgia and to whom the depositions As to his Freedom refer. He was brought into the jail without Freeman know ing that such a person was in the state or expected and though he was intentionally brought in in company with a number of Otler citizens the poor negro spied him out and rushed up to him saying Massa Patillo is Dis you ? per Contra Rev. Or. Ellington has brought three persons to swear that Freeman is his slave. He demanded that his pantaloons should be taken of Quot so that his witnesses might make a personal examination of the negro s flesh Marks. Freeman s counsel were by and at that time prevented it. The u. S. Marshal j. L. Robinson however came to the City refused to allow his counsel to be present unless they would consent that he should thus expose himself and in spite of their written protest against it compelled Freeman to expose himself before these witnesses who having now found out All the Marks on his body Are enabled of course to swear to them in open court. The trial is not to come off fur some time being set sixty Days from the previous proceedings but we have Only to say that the whole Case thus far is a disgrace to the state. Bail to the amount of thousands upon thousands of do llar8, in which the Best men of Indianapolis including All parties from old Hunters to free spoilers have joined has been refused. He is compelled to suffer 60 Days close confinement in jail through two hot summer months though a Man who in hot blood had killed his neighbors a villain who had outraged your wife or a scoundrel who had Cut your ears from your head would be allowed to be at Large on bail. He has to pay $180 for the hire of guards to keep hims if from running away besides the hundreds of dollars he has had to expend to procure evidence to save himself from a life of slavery. And finally he is compelled to suffer himself to be Strippel for examination before men thirsting for his condemnation. Is it True that the special glory of Law is the Barrier which it builds Between strength and weakness Between grasping avarice and griping want Between the powerful and the feeble Between the haughty and the Humble we shall watch the end of this Case with deep interest. And we were gratified to find at Indianapolis such a Strong preponderance of Public opinion in favor of Freeman. We Are not without Hopes that he will have Justice awarded him. impressions have gone Forth in reference to the so called fugitive Caise. First that Freeman had been released. His trial has not yet l Een had. A the other that Ellington has been taken into custody. This is not True either. Rev. of on exchanges make Ewington a reverend Quot we Ninde retard he does not claim a minister of the gospel but does claim to member of the Church. So we have an exam note of one heir of Christ attempting to make another heir of Christ his property. Who can wonder that there Are infidels for the Indiana free Democrat. aaduater7. I hate no disposition to become tiie apologist of or it Iii of the Church. I believe that slavery tap Tizedes Nobe Titer than in its native deformity. Itis All bad and a ways bad. It has no element in or out of Church to save it from the Wrath of god and tie utter Iti Athing of every honest Enli thened mind. Or. Ritchey in your paper last Yeek says Many things in answer to toy Short letter a in this subject Buttas i agree with Bim in the Mauj and desire As much As he the destruction of this horrible system i will not enter Upton along examination of his views. I Only desire to state that the agreement of the general conference of 1844, not to trespass in the territory of the Southern Church was rescinded in 1848, and there is now no such i would again respectfully suggest that our preachers Are not necessarily pro slavery because they preach on Southern territory. I do not really see anything in my Friend s article beside this mistake that i care about correcting. Anything he can say against members of the body of Christ holding their fellow men in bondage will meet my most cordial approbation. I now say that to buy or sell or hold men women and children to make slaves of them is a sin against god and the Church. Judge Stevens in the paper for this week also pays respects to my article and intimates that i am trying to apologise for slavery. I have Only to say that i must have been misunderstood. Let the judge make out a Creed against the slave system expressive of his known disgust and Abhorrence to the system and i will most heartily subscribe to it but Fiir the lord s Sake do not Call me the apologist of slavery. Among All the vile things said of me i think this the worst Ever uttered against Nie. What does the judge and doctor want us to do As a Church to abandon slave territory entirely that would be both i Mylish and m picked. If our preachers Are consistent anti slavery men Why drive them from territory where they Are doing a mighty work for god and of humanity again would not the judge allow our people on slave territory to buy a slave for the purpose of benefiting immediately and finally freeing him. If our members do buy and sell and whip and hold men women and Chil Durki then with the judge i think that they will be lost in hell forever. I have no doubt of every Avo leaves men women and children by his a i in ii Luevery does by his kill fix his own doom unless Fly a abject ignorance saves him from retribution the methodist Church does not wish to be self deceived nor to deceive others. North and South East and West she does teach and most firmly believe that Quot slavery is the sum of All this is the language of her greatest Many John Wesley and this she still teaches. 1 cannot conceive what motive men can have in reiterating the Stiie slander that the methodist Church is a pro slavery Church. Just As reasonably you can Call her a pro stealing Church because some member some time stole a sheep or a pro whiskey Church because some Man belonging to her once made whiskey. But Why Don t you get rid of slaveholders that is precisely what we Are at. We want to get rid of All who do not hold them As a Charity and who Are not willing to set them free As soon As possible. 1 know places where men sold liquor Yea made it and yet belonged to the Church and notwithstanding the palpable violation of the Rule the preachers could not turn them out for a while. Now we can do it everywhere and will the judge or the doctor find distillers or liquor Sellers in the Church. They Are All out i guess. I know they Are within my acquaintance. We Are really a loing a first rate work in the South and will move on in die Good Way opposed to the Quot great evil Quot and every other evil. Jan any Man find any pro slavery preachers it Quot so where a and i am ready to vote for their expulsion instant ter. Our Bishops Are All anti slavery our preachers Are strongly so our doctrines Are surely anti slavery then Why Brand us As a pro slavery Church Call us pro stealing pro liquor pro adultery pro piracy pro Devil pro everything inhuman and this Only is equal to pro slavery. It is a slander we Are Jost no such Tujing. We want to do Good and Quot spread scriptural holiness Over the in lands if you find a moan methodist who defends slavery then give him the right kind of a scorching but do not Bame the rest of us for Gerrit Smith in Congress.

Roberts secy. Put Mouth embarkation of the Pilgrim fathers from Delft Haven Holland was celebrated at Plymouth mass., on the 1st inst. A number of Good speeches were made. We copy the following extract from or. Sumner s on the occasion. Or. Hale was also present and made some appropriate remarks which we will Endeavor to give at another time. Quot and these outcasts despised in their own Day by the proud and powerful Are the men whom we have met in this goodly number to celebrate not for any Victory of War not for any Triumph of , science or Leaming not for worldly Success of any kind. How poor Are All these things by the Side of that divine virtue which led them amidst the reproach the obloquy and the hardness of the world to hold fast to the truth. Sir if the honors of this Day Are not a mockery if they do not expend themselves in Mere selfish granulation if they Are a sincere homage to the character of the pilgrims a and i cannot suppose otherwise a then is it Well for us to be Here. Standing on Plymouth Rock at their great anniversary we cannot fail to be inspired by their example. We see clearly what it has done for the world and what it has done for their Fame. No Man Here to Day will think their self sacrifice their deviation from received opinions their unquenchable to first for Liberty Ai error or illusion. Conformity might perhaps have Pur Chas for them a profitable peace but not peace of mind it might have secured place and Power but not repose it might have opened a present shelter but not a Home in history and in men s hearts till time shall be no More. All will confess the True grandeur of their example while in vindication of a cherished principle they stood alone against the madness of men against the Law of the land against their King. Better be the despised Pilgrim a fugitive for Freedom than the halting politician forgetful of principle a with a Senate at his heels enthusiastic applause such sir is the voice from Plymouth Rock As it salutes my ears. Others May not hear it.

The Prospect of soon ceasing to be ranked with the sunny South in its chattel izing human souls May have been the cause of the additions contemplated and provided for in their late infamous provisions on the subject of Wesleyan.

Piece and the history of religious his speech at Bali More general Pierce said Quot who can fail to be reminded where the Banner of Undrille unqualified religious toleration was first freely Given to the Breeze Quot the precise meaning of Quot Undrille toleration Quot we do not but certainly Gen. Pierce bought to be sufficiently familiar with history to now that the Banner of religious Freedom Quot was first unfilled by Roger Williams and that tie religious toleration of Maryland so far As it existed was a necessity imposed upon the colonists not a Concession Gra Teci by them. The Colony waa held of a protestant Prince and it Hati not the Power to exclude the protestant religion. The attempt to do so would have drawn upon it the immediate vengeance of the Mother country and might have ended in the exclusion of the roman Catholic religion. Even As it was Maryland enacted that whoever Den a the Trinity should suffer death was this Quot Undrille and unqualified religious toleration Quot Llo Quoter Williams repudiated the idea of toleration because it seemed to imply the right of government to withhold As Well As to give. He denied the Power of human government Over the conscience and held that soul Liberty was granted by god and that any human Power exceeded its just authority in restraining it. He held that the right to work hip god. According to the dictates of conscience was As Blear As the right to see or breathe. And in maintenance of this great principle even yet imperfectly understood but which he grasped in All its breadth lie turned to the pathless wilderness and offered his prayers where no r of interposed Between him and his god. Lord Baltimore was in his personal character the reverse of Roger Williams. We have no reason to doubt that he was tolerant but he neither comprehended nor cared for religious Freedom. He was a Diss Dute Man indifferent to religion and looking upon the Church Only As the Means of rewarding his Boon companions win it the places for which of All others they were least fitted. To make such a Naan the apostle of religious Freedom and to make a Colony which decreed death As the punishment of heresy the Pioneer in religious Freedom is an assault upon the Minory of Roger journal. The judge need not charge me with Riding any Hobby or fearing any Man or any consequences. I despise hobbies of every kind and would ride in old methodist preacher style with Saddle bags and other old fashioned accoutrements to preach against sin in High places and in Low. Methodist preachers would get along poorly on hobbies. They May do for politicians and old fog divines but we wish to be progressive to Fox ahead with Young America to the lofty Civili Zatica of the Bible prophecies. To this ultimatum we look with great Delight. The world seems now to be properly agitated on great moral questions and each Friend of humanity has enough to do to keep himself right and push the Ball keep All moving around you. Agitation is the soul of nil a rals. We will i five no doubt succeed in breathing this breath of life into All the nations by and by. Hope makes the present Joyful and we look with longing to the end of National crimes supported by Law. Let us not friends of Man devour each other but hopefully work and keep All astir around us greeting every Friendly hand and hailing All True and courteous knights on the same glorious Field. I do not wish to protract any controversy on this subject. I Hope my Brethren will not spend their energies in fighting a Man of Straw there is no such anomaly As a pro slavery Quot methodist episcopal Church Quot a presbyterians baptists <fec., can answer for them Selvea. B. P. Crary. Indianapolis August 4. P. S. For the Sake of our common humanity co Iteck if you please the terrible lie that pleasant Ellington is a preacher. It is disgrace enough to All Christendom that such a Heathen dwells in to Call him preacher is an insult to god. Hell itself would hardly dispatch one of its lowest subaltern of an errand so intensely iniquitous. Ellington is not a preacher do Teu it Quick to everybody. _ for the Indiana free Democrat. Thoughts on the in of Iceney of the professed churches of Jesus Christ to accomplish righteousness. It appears to me that if the churches were in deed and in Trutlin the mystical body of Christ the militant Church of Jesus there would be no need of any other organize Ilion to carry out any act of Benevolence described in the word of god. Christ says of his Church be Are the Light of the world a City on a Hill the Salt of the Earth Etc. Why then do we find the need of organizing abolition and Temperance societies outside of Church organizations nay More even Church members and ministers find it expedient and indispensable to join outside societies to accomplish these objects. Is it not because they Are not the Church of Christ because they Are corrupt because Thev have apostate sized they have not Power with such a Light of the world. Such a City on a Hill. Such Salt of the Earth. We have need to put on sackcloth to proclaim a fast such an one As is found and recommended in the prophecy of Isaiah. Quot is not this uie fast that i have chosen Saith tie lord. That be undo the heavy burdens that be let the compressed go free and that be break every Yoke.

This my brother have we not reason to fear the present churches Bear the character of Babylon in revelation where her character is described and her overthrow proclaimed. It is said a part of her merchandise consisted in slaves and the souls of men. Revelations 15 chapter 13th verse. More anon. Yours for righteousness. Y l. G.

He is now Able to be about arid this week attends at Fulton the Christian Union meeting. I found him cheerful but thoughtful in View of the extraordinary circumstances and duties that await him at the National Capitol an arduous task is Befu ire him. He goes to fill a Post of difficulty and danger. He will be an apostle of Liberty in the very stronghold of slavery and almost single handed he will have to dispute the pass Vith the whole Phalanx of slavery s chosen men. Paul at Athens rebuking not stir up More malignant feeling than will follow the preaching of the pure anti slavery gospel at Washington. Most to distinctly will or. Smith deny the legality of slavery. He will strip the vile thing of All gospel constitutional and Legal countenance and will treat it As it ought to be treated a system of Vio Lence and blood no better than piracy. Murder itself will get As much respect from him As slavery for to him slavery is murder. But or. Smith is not Only an abolitionist. He is a land reformer and More still he is now As he Ever has been a believer in an every Way righteous civil government and is therefore in conflict with this government at Many other Points than its slavery. He is at War with every species of class legislation and will stand up for eternal Justice wherever and from whatever Quarter it May be assailed. A mighty work is before him. He is a Temperance Man he goes among the wine fibbers. He is a peace Man he goes to mingle with men of blood. He is a Man of prayer he goes among blasphemers. He is an abolitionist he goes to meet the traffickers in human blood. He is a gentleman he goes to confront Ruffian. There will be few with whom he will have anything in common and if withal he shall pass that ngh the fur Nace heated Quot seven times hotter and shall come out without tie smell of fire upon him it will Only be because the same god reigns now that cared for the hebrews. Gerrit Smith will be in Congress As at Home in Washington As at Peterboro loved respected and honoured. Even men steal ers will acknowledge his superiority and respect in him the principle which they have not the virtue themselves to carry out. Quot upon him will be centred the fixed attention of the nation. He will Cary a new element into Congress. He is a politician without Pride and believes that a Man need not abandon the character of a Christian because he fills the office of a statesman. Let him go to his great work and the players of millions will go with the Smyrna affair. The name of the commander of the St. Louis who behaved so gallantly at Smyrna is Duncan n. Ingraham. He is a South carolinian. Let his name be remembered for in that affair he behaved like a genuine american who feels that his country is with him i wherever he sails and who has the spirit and Resolution to vindicate its Honor. In the last of the Quot Europe Quot letters of the new York times which some people will impute to Kossuth because the 7 Imes encourages them to do so we find the following on this affair a Commonwealth Quot Why sir that s glorious a that s Republican a sorry not to know yet the name of the Gallant officer but so much i know that he by this single act. Did More to raise the Honor dignity and reputation of the United states in the opinion i of the world than All your a Republican foreign diplomacy has done for years and years past. Also there is but one word about the matter through All Europe Quot Honor to our Gallant Yankee Brethren Quot says every englishman whig and tory equally Quot Honor to Republican America Quot says every honest Man in Europe. The virtue of the citizen reflects his own Honor upon his country. Rejoice in it enjoy your share in it a but also mini the moral of the Strain. By the Universal applause with which the civilized world is greeting the Noble act of your Gallant countryman you May see How easy it would be for the United states to command the respect and the admiration of the outward world and to assert a proud standing for the Republican principle in the transactions of the world. Nothing More is required but Only that All your Public functionaries abroad civil and military should be animated by the same sentiments As that Noble fellow your Gallant Captain appears to be a nothing More is required but Only that in whatever position abroad you should remain what you Are at Home. Republicans proud of your country s Freedom and sensible of its moral to dignity a and be sure of it within a turn of the hand. Republican America stands higher than whatever other Power on in the same letter we find the following relative to Turkey and Russia Quot but will there really be a War Well sir today the situation is such lord Redcliffe and my is. la Cour upon receiving notice of the russians having crossed the Pruth went to the Sultan and told him that though the combined Fleet is at his disposition they do not advise him to yet for it but advised him rather to wait till England and France shall have tried a new negotiation directly at St. Petersburgh. Of course the advice was complied with. I believe that England and France have already dispatched their new proposals to St. Petersburgh. Their nature i cannot positively state but i believe it is so Nething of this kind that Turkey sign a pledge confirmatory of its last decree about christians conjointly to All the five Powers and not to Russia alone a Herica is taken for no Power of course and considered not Wortley to be thought of and that the five Powers on their part should declare that they do not mean to interfere with the internal administration and tie Sovereign rights of the Sultan. Something of that kind. So matters will now rest awhile for months perhaps should the Czar have become somewhat less stubborn and less insolent which i scarcely believe but these diplomats left out one element for it a their reckoning and this is the turkish people. I still think it More Likely that War will re suit from the from the to mint a a by a Uterma or ten from the Pittsburgh saturday visitor. The fugitive clause. The late slave Case in Philadelphia has been productive of most excellent effects upon the temper of the press. The old Hunker papers which two years ago. Affected to believe that the salvation of the Union depended on slave catching have had their eyes opened to the enormities of the fugitive slave Law by the course which marshal Wynkoop thought proper to pursue. Such papers As the Philadelphia Sun and the bulletin of the same City with others of like tendency throughout the state have become convinced by the practical operations of the Law As developed in the Bill Fisher Case that it is not Only inhuman b it tramples on the rights which americans Price most highly. This is one step Forward in the right direction and we Are glad to note that the outrages committed in the name of this most infamous Law have at awakened the stolid men who at first were so clamorous for its rigorous enforcement. But perhaps the most result of this slave Case is to be found in the course taken by the new York Tribune. In the editorial columns of that paper of August 1st, a Long article appears which takes the Broad ground that Thecla Usein the Constitution on which the fugitive Law is based has no Legal application to fugitive Slabey this View is elaborated with much ability and sustained by the citation of numerous authorities. We cannot give an abstract of the argument Here and have not room for it entire this week but it shall go hard with us if room be not found for it in our next Issue. It is bold ground for even such a press As the Tribune to take but it is the Only tenable ground on which the fugitive Law can be fairly and successfully fought. Spooner and Goodell have urged the same View before but to a very limited number of auditor and we Are therefore rejoiced to see the Tribune introduce it to its wide Circle of readers. It is a View we know which the education and foregone conclusions of the american people will at first prompt them to reject but they will eventually come to it and it is important therefore to familiarize them with it and keep it before them until they Are ready to give it a hearing upon its merits. The time will come when the judiciary of this country will take the ground now taken by the Tribune but that will not be until the people have occupied it before them. For years past it has been gradually obtaining greater breadth and depth and it is now destined to Challenge a Large share of Public attention. Let us be duly thankful for these evidences of Progress and take courage. The world does move. Quot great is the troth and it will e. A Lee and i 8igned the joint Board or his Teea and vision of Ladiana Ai Niy Unitie Reify at its annul a it i ing J�Ly�-i8th, 1859j�z��z to address pm l of object i if he endowment of a chair of a Erma of Languay and liter Asire in said University. We would respectfully Call your attention to the Lotf Loining facts and snap tons. V we have in our midst a Large and rabidly in creasing German population any of them have had the advantages of a Liberal education in their father land and they desire that their daughters and their sons should be educated in the land of their adoption. I. They have come among is nolo Germanizue America shut to becomes americanized Grennan and while they retain their attachment to their Mother Tongue they Are anxious that their children should re cd Ive an Aine rican Educ Iarion. This is especially tirus of the prot Festant germans. That the germans in stir country Wui make provision for the Tica Tion of their sons in get Nan As Well As in English liter Atuf doubted by those who un<ler3tand the German Elan proposed by the trustees of tie Indiana As Ury University at Green caste commends itself to the germans is. On the ground of Economy. The propose by the Sale of scholarships and the receipt of do nations �fee., to endow a chair of the German language and literature and when such chair is in sowed German students entering the University upon their scholarships will not Only have the of studying German but of taking the entire College Jot Rise will Ion to any additional charge and thus secure All the advantages of the University simply by the Endo a Mentor one chair. 2d. They will have the advantage of associating with Ameri Cati Yot Ith and thereby acquire a More extensive and Coite it knowledge of american character and manners and a More perfect knowledge of the English language and literature than they would be Likely to obtain in a separate German institution. 3d. A Large Amo tent of the germans do not de sire a separate institution of Leaming for their children. They have adopted America As their country and they wish their children educated in such a manner As win Best qualify Jar them Forie duties and responsibilities of american citizens. 4th./ there Are Many pious German Young men who feel called of enter the Christian ministry and have a great desire to be useful but who Are deterred therefrom by want of grammatical knowledge of German. As a veil As As from the want of knowledge of the higher branches of English and Elass c in literature. By All such the proposal of the trustees at Greencastle i ill be hailed with Delight As there they can not Only obtain a German classical and English education but also have the advantages of the biblical department of the University. This enter Rise Coin mends itself to our English population 1st. Large numbers of american youth Are studying and still larger numbers will study the German language. Its social commercial and diplomatic importance demands it. 2d. The founding of separate institutions of Leaming by our foreign population would be regarded As a great evil. It would keep up National distinctions. It would Lay tie foundation for bitter prejudices. It would keep us a divided peo pie. 3d. There is an absolute necessity for giving the German youth among us an american a Christian education. The German language is not Only Rich in literature but it is the repository and vehicle of various forms of in fid Lite the infidelity must be met on our own soil for the enemy is upon us and it can Best be done by cultivated minds who Are conversant with the German language. 4th. The importance of concentrating our efforts at least in the beginning. There will be a limited number of youth at least for a few years seeking to Avail themselves of the advantages Here tendered them and one institution will be sufficient to meet the demand at least for some time and As few men can be spared for this work from other departments of labor it is better to take one Man than several. Greencastle occupies a Central position among the German conferences of the West. It is e by of Access by Railroad and in a Short time will be in connection by Railroad Nith a very important town in the West. Greencastle is is healthy a location As any in the Western country a sound moral influence pervades the Community. The Indiana Asbury University is established on a permanent basis. Its present endowment in Cash notes and property amounts to a Hundred and thirty thousand dollars and All its interests Are in a healthy and prosperous condition. The trustees Nave undertaken the endowment of a Gorman professorship not in any doubtful or hesitating spirit but in kill Confidence that their course would not Only meet with the approval but with the Hearty co operation of the friends of German literature throughout our entire country and the Enterprise is commended to the Public not Only As one of great importance but As one promising much Good. The trustees at their late meeting elected Rev. Win. Nast d. D., to the chair of Gernian language and literature and he has signified his acceptance of the same and will enter upon its duties so soon As arrangements can be made for supplying his present position As editor of the Christian apologist <tc., at Cincinnati. The also elected Rev. Joseph Tarkington agent for the Sale of scholarships and the collection of funds for the endowment of said professorship. For further information we would refer those interested to Rev. L. W. Berry d. a president of the University. A a. C. Holliday Quot. W. H. Goo de j. L. Smith b. F. Crary we. Nast. Indianapolis july 28th, 1853. For the Indiana free Democrat. American colonisation Etc. There Are Many who yet cling to colonization who contend that Tom prejudice that now exists must and will continue to be an insurmountable Barrier in the Way of alleviating the Blacks among us Here in the United states hence the plea of colonization but we would ask such men and women too if there Are such what have they done or what Are they willing to do to remove the prejudice will they contend As some do that it was and is right to vote for and carry out the thirteenth article of the Constitution. Nay verily it will make the Case worse. Can we educate and christianize them in a foreign country easier and with less expense than Here any Man can easily see we cannot. But i would ask such people who make these objections against the Elevation of the coloured people Here if they Are willing on their part to foot the Bill and Bare tie res Tonsi Bilitz at the judgment of the great Day of of of almighty Quot they cannot will not All be removed but a Small portion of them will Ever be colonized so we must educate and christianize them Here or they must go without. If they Are to remain among us we May take our Choice for them to remain ignorant heathens among us or com Nance the work the sooner the better. But is not everything or act done almost that could be to keep them ignorant debased heathens they Are not allowed their oath where a White person is concerned. Jonn Wesley s remark on this particular is Quot what Villany is this Quot they have no part in the Public school funds. With few exceptions they canno Center a school Are Whites most of them incapacitated to teach school among themselves who pities them when they Are sick where is their physician it White minister teaches them the gospel of Christ the key of knowledge is with held from them and who will give an account for that May god have mercy on us and on them. Yours t. L. 6. New party. The new y Ork journal of Commerce contains an Anonymous circular calling a Quot state Union party convention Quot to assemble at Newburyport Massachusetts on the 15th of september Proximo Quot to take into consideration the ways and Means then and there to be presented for the total abandonment of All existing parties and the organization under entire new issues and measures of an Independent state and National the Call says Quot this new party will be devoted to the cause of National Union. It will be pledged to uphold the Constitution the Union and the Laws and to stand by our country and National government Long after All other parties cease to have an exis under its organization it will withhold its support in All future slate and National elections from every element of disunion and from All candidates for office not pledged to carry out the principles policy and measures of this new party. The circular further recommends a Quot Union convention Quot to be hell in Washington City on the 22d of february 1854, to perfect the organization of the Quot National Union what the principles measures and policy of this new party May a we Are left to conjecture but inasmuch As a.
