Transient papers one cent to any part of the United states if pre paid and two menu when not few version of tie Erie difficulty. The Fhil Delphia daily Register is out in a Long editorial in defence of the Merians justifying their conduct and endeavouring to throw the Burden of the blame for the Dib cities that have occurred there on the Railroad companies of new York for alleged violation of their contract with the Merians in not allowing the break of gauge to at Erie instead of at Buffalo and Dunkirk. It says the whole difficulty is owing to a rivalry Between the different Harbor towns on the Lake and that Cleveland Dunkirk and Buffalo Are endeavouring to Quot crush Quot Erie and destroy her Harbor. That the City of Philadelphia has not taken any part in the difficulty having no connection with Erie but that the merchants of new York and other Eastern cities Are trying to make some capital out of it exciting a prejudice against Philadelphia in order to get the mint removed from that City and that breaking Down Erie they also Hope to prevent a Railroad from connecting Between that place and Erie which they fear might in the future divert some of the Western Trade to Philadelphia. Whatever real or fancied grievances May have been suffered the people of Erie it does not justify them in committing such acts of lawlessness and violence As have been reported of them. If they have been wronged the Law was open to them to seek a Legal redress but taking the Law into their own hands and suffering themselves to governed the spirit of mob Cracy they have forfeited the respect of All Law abiding citizens and shown a distrust of the Justice of their own cause refusing to submit it to the decision of the proper judicial tribunals. John Are pleased to informed that several persons have forwarded to Calvin Fletcher president of the Bank at this place donations amounting to forty dollars towards a payment of costs and expenses so unjustly incurred John Freeman in his defence against Ellington for his Freedom. We Hope the friends of humanity will not forget the claim of this unfortunate Man whose property is now in jeopardy for some $1200. Crew have received from the publishers messes. Dewitt Davenport amp co., a copy of the celebrated Quot hot Corn Quot Story Solon Robinson which was first published in the k. Y. Tribune and which has elicited general commendation from the press of the country. The copy before us is handsomely bound and is illustrated with numerous engravings. We have not had time to examine the work but have no doubt it is Well worthy a perusal. The Cha from an absence of several Days just As our paper is going to press we have no Opportunity to notice this week the characteristic articles of the Quot general correspondent Quot in the last Chanticleer. If we deem it necessary we shall do it next week. We notice that has seen fit to reply in our absence to a single item a Alexander de Bodisco russian minister at Washington for the past fifteen years died at his residence in that City on the 23d ult. He was about seventy years of age and possessed a Large Fortune acquired principally speculations in this country. His salary As minister was Over $20,000 per annul. He married an american lady of Georgetown some years ago whom he leaves seven children. Scythe new York papers contain a Call signed the principal business men of that City for a meeting Quot to protest against the project now pending in the Senate of the United states for the repeal of Liat Section of the Missouri act which forever prohibits slavery in the territories lying North of 36 dogs. And 30 Many of the signer Are zealous supporters of the Compromise of 1850.teacbingr immorality. Such is the grave charge brought against the free Democrat in the last number of the Chanticleer. The attempt to substantiate this charge would excite our ridicule but for the Malignity displayed the writer in it endeavouring to build a plausible superstructure upon his false premises. The following Are the sentences upon which this charge is predicated. It they Are taken from a synopsis of the lectures of Lucy Stone delivered in this place the latter part of november last and published in the free Democrat of dec. 1st. How much foundation there is for such a charge the extract will show Quot the miseries and misfortunes resulting to woman from being confined to one or two employments As a Means of living were forcibly portrayed. And we think every word she said on this k int was perfectly True and that it is a subject which Cadis loudly for Reform. She Sho red How it we. That so Many abandoned women were driven upon the world that the alternative was starvation or a life of infamy that Many women would for themselves alone prefer starvation but when they had children around them appending for Succour acid support the Mother offered her body a sacrifice to save them from the Chanticleer says that in the above Quot poverty is Given As an apology for prostitution Quot and that Quot approval of prostitution on account of pretended or real poverty and especially for the Sake of the children could not More forcibly none but a diseased and gangrene imagination would Ever place such a construction upon the language quoted in the above extract. Miss Stone was endeavouring to show that in some of the Large cities where women had to depend solely upon the Needle As a Means of gaining their livelihood and were but scantily paid for their labor temptation to depart fro Iii the path of virtue assailed them through their necessities and especially in the base of the Mother who had children dependent in her for bread he was assailed through the pcs ii tender part of woman s heart it a Mother s love. If mistake not she detailed an instance of such a Case that had come to her own knowledge. She did not attempt to justify any one who should err in such a Case she did not say nor did her language imply that it was hot better for the in Tow and her children to did of St aviation rather than such a wrong should committed. But she listed it As a argument to show what had been and would unless new avenues of employment were thrown open to we Jinan and she had an Opportunity an Independent livelihood. This is not the first attempt of the Chanticleer to falsify and misrepresent the teachings of miss Stone and hot Vedvei let editor May diff from t advanced it does not justify him in Endeavor Ingi to malign a talented and pure minded woman and if we mistake not this last miserable attain it will recoil upon the head of its a Appeal in Beltau to of Freeman. The Indian free Democrat contains an Appeal to the Public in behalf of John Freeman a victim of fugitive Law whose Case last summer was familiar to our readers. The Appeal contains a minute statement of the expenses to which Freeman was subjected during a false imprisonment of sixty eight Days Aud in procuring testimony from go eos a to save himself from slavery on the claim of of peasant Ellington of Missouri. The Case is one of great hardship. Froeman was imprisoned and although bail to the amount of $10,000 was offered the Best citizens of Indianapolis it was refused and his detention in jail until he had time to procure evidence of Freedom was Only allowed on condition that he himself should pay three dollars a Day for a guard to watch the prison if he had been accused of murder the state would have paid the expense but on a false charge of being a slave he had to foot the Bill of his imprisonment Ellington brought Forward false witnesses to prove him his slave which subjected him to the necessity of sending to Georgia for witnesses to prove himself a Freeman. Citizens of Georgia came on at the expense of Freeman but generously sacrificing their time to testify in his behalf. Providentially also the slave of Ellington was found in Canada in time to save Freeman from the possibility of being adjudged Ellington s property. All this overwhelming testimony made Ellington shrink from the trial and assent to his discharge after he had expended one thousand one Hundred and ninety one dollars in his imprisonment and defence. The Money was borrowed from a Bank and his Little property accumulated hard labor under the disabilities of Indiana Laws and the prejudices of caste there existing was mortgaged to secure its repayment. Under Ordinary circumstances the claimant would have been y Able for the costs and an honorable High minded Man the religious profession of Ellington ought to have developed would have done something for his Relief. But not so under the fugitive Law not so pleasant Ellington the Missouri slaveholder and religious teacher. A suit was instituted for false imprisonment but Ellington notwithstanding he had acknowledged his error in claiming Freeman put in a plea that Freeman teas his slave and on one pretence or another swore off the trial and evident a with a purpose of worrying Freeman and compelling him to abandon the suit through exhaustion of his Means to prosecute it. The fugitive Law enables him to do Freeman this great wrong and baffle his endeavours to obtain redress. And yet says the Ohio state journal a Quot the result of this Case shows that under the fugitive Law the coloured Man is sure to obtain Justice Quot Freeman s Means Are exhausted and his Little property pledged to the Bank. Under these circumstances the citizens of Indianapolis make an Appeal to the pubic on his behalf. The Appeal is specially addressed to the ministers and churches of Indiana and Georgia Bat All friends of Freedom and Justice Are called upon to contribute to relieve Freeman and his friends from their liabilities. Any one disposed to do so can address his attorney j. Mitchell esq., at Indianapolis. It is Well to occasionally recount these hateful circumstances of oppression under the Sanction of Law lest we become callous to the claims of Justice and lose our hatred of the wrong and oppression Quot sanctified Quot the legislation of our . Remittances should directed to Calvin Flat cake president of the Branch Bank in this City instead of or. Mitchell As stated in the above. Or. Mite hell is not the attorney of Freeman but has taken a Lively interest in his behalf. He it was who Drew up the Appeal to the ministers and churches of Indiana and Georgia which we published a week or two since and for which i he deserves the thanks of the friends of humanity. Bat we think in making the statement he was rather inclined to smooth Over and cover up the iniquities of the fugitive slave Law the cause of All of Freeman s troubles. This May do As a mat tet of policy when appealing to Hunters and citizens of slave holding states who Are directly interested in the continuance of the Law. But so Long As Liat la remains there will continually happening cases similar to Freeman a and Many of even greater hardship than his. He had the Benefit of the most Liberal construction that could Given to the Law the commissioner did not Dis pose of his care in a Quot summary Quot manner As that Law directs but gave him ample time in which to procure testimony and defend his Freedom. What the consequence would have been but for the fact of his having Money to defend himself with and the trial being postponed is very evident to any one acquainted with the history of the Case and that is he would have had to take a trip South. He owes his Freedom to the fact of his having been possessed of some property at the time of his arrest and the sense of Justice and humanity of commissioner Sullivan in granting him time contrary to the Letier and spirit of the fugitive Law in which to Hunt up testimony of his Freedom and not to any Merit of the fugitive act. He has preserved his Freedom but at the sacrifice of his property unless the amount which he is liable for shall made up the contributions of benevolent individuals. We Hepe it May. But at the same time we object to any apologies for the fugitive slave Law thereby justifying its continuance and multiplying cases of similar hardship so Long As it remains a Law. John Freeman has been Quot unfortunate Quot but his misfortune has been the direct result of a wicked and inhuman enactment and upon its authors rests the guilt of his oppression and As we verily believe god will hold them accountable for it. Remedy for filibuster Inird senator Gwin of California has lately been making complaint in the u. Senate of a Lack of military Force on the Pacific coast sufficient to prevent the inhabitants of California from engaging in filibustering expeditions against their wealthy and peaceable neighbor and asks for and increase of the naval and military Force on that coast. The n. Y. Tribune looks upon this demand of Gwin for More military Force merely As a scheme to rid the Treasury of some of its surplus funds and argues that it would of no Avail in putting Down filibustering if the people Are disposed to engage in that business. It recommends a remedy however and we the ii a Good one. It says a no we cannot Stop filibustering increasing the Arney and Naif it in our Power at All. With five thousand Miles of sea coast and hundres of ports looking out on the Gulf and two oceans an army like the russian and a Navy like the British would not answer that end. One resource we have but that costs nothing and so is unpopular at Washington. Let our government emphatically declare that it will never More interfere in behalf of Defeated and captured Filli busters that if they leave their country to invade or revolutionize foreign lands they renounce their nationality and take their lives in to Weir hands and we shall then have done something to tie purpose. President Fillmore was widely blamed for threatening this in a proclamation respecting the invasion of Cuba when his real Ault was not that he threatened it but that he did not keep his Promise. Men Mil goofy to fight in other lands when no fight can got up at Home we claim the privilege of so doing whenever we shall receive cause or occasion but should we Ever do it and captured fighting for any other country than this we claim no Protection and desire no interference from the Federal City. Fighting at Large for Liberty or religion or in any other than a National quarrel is a Man s own business wherein he has no right to implicate his country and if he a True Man he will not seek to. Let whoever wishes to fight for Turkey for Italy for Hungary for Ireland for Cuba take his life in his bands and go of course not with such War like Parade As to implicate this country in the struggle unless she should deliberately. implicated. Wherever a free fight shall Spring up let those who win go in but let them not seek to involve others violating the Laws and comity of a Brief paragraph in last week s paper in relation to the decision of the supreme court of Iowa on the liquor Law of that state the types were no Ade to say they decided it it should have been Quot constitutional Quot a a very material difference.

Little new York Tribune and other leading Northera journals oppose the Nebraska Bill ion the ground that it repeals the Missouri compromised which it regards As a solemn compact made Between North and South on the admission of Missouri that there should never a slave state North of 36 dogs. 30 min. That the attempt to apply the principle of the Compromise of 1850, reopens the slavery agitation and exhibits a base subservience to the slave Power. After stating the positions assumed the opponents of the Bill which the madisonian Calls a Quot summary of arguments Quot holding us accountable for them we said that the adherents to tie Compromise of 1850 must recognize the doctrine of finality As they claim that the act for the admission of Missouri is a compact which should never repealed though that doctrine was Dis avowed them As applied to the Compromise of 1850. We Are certainly right in this position. Well knowing that the opponents of a Bill for the organization of Nebraska will rely mainly upon the Missouri act for Success and that they Are strongly urging adherence to it As a binding obligation we argued against any construction of the doctrine of finality which if admitted in the absence of other considerations rests from Congress the Power to incorporate in the Bill a provision applying tie principle of the last Compromise. Those other considerations were that the act of 1820, was a Compromise of the difficulties of that period that the acquisition of new territory the question of the Quot Extension of slavery Quot was re opened and that a new Compromise was affected Viz that of 1850, which should regarded As a new compact made Between the same parties. A principle was involved in this. The great questions whether or not the people of a territory have the right to engraft a slavery or anti slavery provision in their Constitution was decided in favor of the right. The principle of non intervention Congress was recognized. The precedents of 1787, and of 1820. Were discarded and the policy of restrictive anti slavery clauses condemned after an exciting and dangerous controversy of Many months. It was a controversy which agitated the entire Union a which aroused the hatred of one Section against another. It was happily settled and a fraternal feeling re established. It should remembered too that pending the Compromise measures of 1850, the North was unwilling to recognize the Quot obligation Quot of the Missouri Compromise which the opponents of the Nebraska Bill seek to impose upon Congress for the reason that As it positively prohibited slavery in the territory above the line of 36 dogs. 30 min., it implication permitted the ingress of slaves into the territory below that line. To the South it opened a wide Field for the Extension of slavery and the advocates of the principle of the ordinance of 1787, then abandoned that Compromise to which they cling with so much tenacity now. The South then yielded a right which it claimed virtue of a necessary imps cation and consented the adoption of the principle of non intervention that the previous compact should have no Force or effect whatever. Then the Missouri Compromise was Quot slavery propagandist Quot now it is Quot anti slavery the tables Are turned and free soil journals cry with vehemence Quot the old compact is still in they were not so scrupulous in the Observance of the contract when under its provisions the South might have turned its hordes of Blacks upon the territories acquired from Sentinel. Such is the language of tie Sentinel in reply to the madisonian senator Bright s Organ which had charged it with being opposed to Douglas s Nebraska Bill. Whatever doubts it May have previously had in regard to the loyalty of the Sentinel to the slave interest we think the above ought to satisfy any reasonable Man of its utter abandonment of the principles of Freedom. The above article is so full of errors As to matters of fact and inference that we do not know whether to charge them most to ignorance or to design but perhaps it is owing a Little to both causes. It says Quot the adherents to the Compromise of 1850 must recognize the doctrine of finality As they claim that the act for the admission of Missouri is a compact which should never repealed though that doctrine was disavowed them As applied to the Compromise of 1850.&Quot we do not think it necessarily follows that because a person favors carry ing out the Missouri compact he Quot must recognize the doctrine of common honesty would require that when there is a contract made Between two persons and one of them has performed his part of the agreement that the other should perform his also. Such is precisely the Case in regard to tie Missouri Compromise. It was a compact Between two parties the icon slave holding states on the one part and the slave holding states on the other. Mutual advantages were derived or supposed to derived from this agreement. The Benefit to derived the South was the admission of the state of Missouri with her slave holding Constitution the North the prohibition of slavery forever in All the territory acquired from Louisiana North of 36 dogs. 30 min., North latitude. The compact was made and the South received her part of the Benefit the immediate admission of Missouri. The advantage to reaped the North was not immediate but prospective the preservation of a portion of the territory of the u. From the blighting curse of slavery for All coming time. Now we do not say that this compact May not repealed but would it just to do it is it just in the South to require its repeal after they have received All the Benefit that they can desire from it and Endeavor to deprive the North of their share of the Benefit throw Missouri out of the Union and place the parties in the condition they the compact was made and there will some show of Justice in this attempt to repeal the anti slavery part of it. Common sense and common honesty it seems to us would require the fulfilment of this agreement without any reference to the abstract rightful Ness or wrongfulness of the Quot finality Quot doctrine. The whole Drift of the Sentinel s article is to the effect that in the anti slavery agitation of 1850 the principle of the Missouri Compromise was abandoned and a new compact made which opened All the territories of the u. To the ingress of the slaveholder. This is not True. The Compromise of 1850 has a provision in it which directly re affirms that of 1820. The National Era has called attention to this Point As follows August 7th, 1850, the Texas Boundary Bill being under discussion in the Senate or. Mason of Virginia moved the following which was adopted provided that nothing herein contained shall construed to impair or qualify anything contained in the 3d article of the 2d Section of the joint Resolution for annexing Texas to Tho United Quot states approved March 1, 1845, either in regard to the number of states that May hereafter for hied out of the state of Texas or what is this famous third article thus explicitly and carefully guarded it is the Extension of the principle of the Missouri Compromise to Texas As follows that new states of convenient size rot exceeding four in number in addition to said state of Texas and having sufficient population May hereafter the consent of said state formed out of the territory thereof which shall entitled to admission under the provision of the Federal Constitution. And such states As May formed of that portion of said territory lying South of 36 dogs. 30 min. North latitude commonly known As the Missouri Compromise line shall admitted into the Union with or without slavery As the Nile of each state asking admission May desire in such state or states As shall formed out of said territory North of said Missouri Compromise line slavery or involuntary servitude except for crime shall it is not True that in 1850 the Quot North Quot or anti slavery men were Quot unwilling to recognize the obligation of the Missouri the prohibition of slavery in territory North of 36 dogs. 30 min. Did not establish slavery in territory South of that line. Slavery the decisions of the u. Supreme court is a local and municipal institution and can Only legally exist virtue of positive enactment. Slavery cannot legally exist in any territory unless there is u Law of Congress sanctioning it in that territory. The right to hold slaves does not exist either common Law or International Law. All territory is free common and International Law and the owners of slaves cannot carry their so called j to Juriy into , and legally hold them there where slavery is not established positive Law. State Laws have no extra territorial Force the moment you i step beyond the limits of the state those Laws cease to operate upon you. Neither did the South yield any right for they never had any to yield. But they gained something and that was the privilege of continuing the illegal practice of carrying their slave property into the territories of the u. Unmolested any prohibitory Law of Congress. More they gained the privilege of cursing with slavery the territory newly acquired from Mexico the Connivance of Congress in failing to apply the proviso of Freedom to those territories. Still Slop . Mussey of Cincinnati furnishes a lengthy communication to a in National Temperance Organ of that City on the injurious effects to children of using the milk of cows fed on still Slop. He says that Quot in most of the Daries supplying the City the cows Are fed on Brewers Grain and distillery slops Grain reeking from fermentation and fluid nearly exhausted of Nutriment but fierce with a stimulating principle forcing the animal organs to unnatural exertion to a Quick diluted diseased yield and to rapid this kind of food is Given because it is cheaper and produces larger quantities of milk but of a very inferior Quality and producing highly injurious effects upon those using it. The doctor further says the very complicated digestive apparatus of the cow requires for its exercise solid food to Mastic ted and ruminated to passed through its series of stomachs and at least converted into Chyle a vital fluid enriching the ultimate secretions and in its properties very similar to the blood which it helps to form. But still Slop feeding employs Only one of the animal s four stomachs and from it no healthy Chyle can formed. A cow can taught to drink from thirty to forty Gallons a Day of this fluid a Hogshead of whih is said taxi contain about As much Nutriment As a Peck of Corn meal. This is Given it various unnatural stages of temperature often reeking hot and straining rapidly through the system produces a Large Quantity of thin bluish milk. And Here is room and Call for farther fraud for As Robert m. Hartly affirms in an elaborate and Well sustained treaties on new York milk and As is probably no less True Here Quot deficient in Nutriment As Slop milk is and must inasmuch As it partakes of the weak Aud diluent properties of t in slush from which it is produced yet As we firmly believe it is never said to the consumer As it is drawn from the cow but is frequently drugged and always Quot in order to disguise its bad qualities and Render it Saleable it is necessary to give it color and consistence. That it is often adulterated is Provan analysis and the confession of those who from principle had relinquished the practice. Starch sugar flour plaster of Paris Chalk eggs annatto etc., Are used for this and he adds that the custom of watering this kind of milk is notorious and so far As he has been Able with some painstaking to ascertain Universal. Liberated noticed a company of eleven covered persons pass our office last evening and their Peculiar appearance induced us to shake some inquiries in regard to them. They Are the property of m. M. And f. T. White of the firm of White Wells a co., wholesale grocers on Pearl Street. These gentlemen inherited them with an estate on the Eastern coast of North Carolina and though they were offered $10,000 in Cash for them they magnanimously determined to give them their Liberty. The negroes seemed to in the most Lively spirits and Are on their Way to the counties of Rush and Henry in Indiana where they will Settle As agriculturists. The conduct of the messes. White in giving these people their Freedom and settling Plieni comfortably in a free state is certainly commendable and we Trust they will reap their Reward in increased Prosperity in business and the Best Success in mercantile . Daily times. We take pleasure in recording the above act of Benevolence on the part of the messes. White referred to above the More so As we understand they Are native Indian ans and have but recently left their father s roof or. John l. White of rays Ville Henry county to engage in business for themselves in Cincinnati. The self denial and moral heroism implied in this act the sacrificing of wealth for the Sake of conscience and the rights of humanity Are worthy of the highest commendation and in the name of every Lover of Freedom and humanity we think them for this Noble Aud generous deed. But what of the Christian and benevolent Law of Indiana which excludes persons from coming into this state on account of their color where is the patriotic Union Saver that will enforce this infamous Law against these liberated Bondmen if such there found we Hope his name will published to the world so that the country May know its benefactors. Oija the Public ought to know their benefactors. The press is pleased to make known the bequests of Rich men in their last wills and testaments. We think it due to the Public As Well As the friends of humanity to place the names of those who have obtained License and their securities legally to beggar their victims to add new inmates to the jail poor House and the various asylums of this state. The list of those who have complied with the Law and their securities in Marion county up to the 24tli ult., is As follows Martin hug securities Charles Garner Charles Warner Alexander f.

Itis said that several whose names Are on the Bonds have requested to have them taken off and that a number of Blank Bonds Are out and not filled. We think it the duty of every business Man to set up a list of these characters where he can have their names and principles before him. City items the democratic have received the second number of or. Bill s review. It is a Medley Ucli after the fashion of Tho present age. Indeed the platform he a dope is suicidal. In heart he sympathy in with the right and Only want a wider View to corrects reckoning and harmonize his action with his sympathies. Vie May Mist Olcen but still do not think we Are in believing that Liberty and slavery cannot fraternize. You May As did our fathers when both were children Rock them gently in the same Cradle together but youth will spent in unpleasant bickering to followed a Man Hood of strife which can terminate Only with the existence of the one or the other. These Are the Modem Jacob and Esau and their paths lie apart. It is no use to plead for their Union in the same country or on the pages of the same review that they Are United under our Constitution. That cannot Avail. You cannot blend Light and darkness nor make sugar of the Mother of vinegar without modifying the elements with which you Deal until their distinctive characters Are lost. So too with Liberty and slavery the chosen of god for the Well being of Man can form no Alliance with Tho Arch blend s daughter. This bringing together of Incompatibles. Is pardonable in the present Case but it is not the Only instance presented on the pages of the review. But on the whole to Hope to see it succeed for there is a spirit at work in our county that will counteract its evil and act in Harmony with ita better nature females were arrested near the new jail on sunday last for drunkenness and Public indecency. One of them was lodged in jail. There is no sight More truly horrible than a Drunken woman utterly void of shame and engaged in uttering blasphemous oaths against the most High and of our nature so deeply to regretted. How much of the guilt of every such exhibition is due to Public opinion and Law ? who can plead while count enhancing the unchristian spirit too Oren manifested toward the fallen and the Laws that License drunkenness that to is wholly guiltless ? if society were to reckon justly there Are Many crimes punished whose immediate authors have not the Only nor indeed the greatest portion of their guilt. . A a company of heavy capital contemplate establishing heavy Iron works on Richland Creek in Green county upon the line of the Evansville straight line Railroad. Such enterprises deserve encouragement from All friends of Tho development of the resources of our state. Ore Coal and whatever else is necessary to establish and support such an undertaking Are abundant in that location. Surely a sensible people cannot boat loss to see that Iron May thus onto ipod much cheaper than from abroad the Cost of Carriage being taken into consideration. This result to sure May not follow at Orco but patriotism demands that an honest and persistent Effort made to bring it about. Goon understand that Thomas h. Sharps esq., sold to C. Elliott and brother the lot opposite the Baptist Church on Meridian Street for five thousand dollars Cash. This is perhaps the Best Sale that has been effected off Washiington Street and indicates that property is still going up in this City. We Are glad too to Seo business men crowded from Washington Street where they have hitherto Boon huddled together too thickly. This Purchase the enterprising messes. Elliott plainly prophecies a Cuba Vigo Evory Wuy promotive of the growth and Prosperity of our City. Small Man who was lodged on Tho Circle during his sickness of this disease has entirely recovered. His physician. Or. Darr Doii cannot too highly praised for his patient and skillful attentions to his charge. He was compelled to minister to Tho sick Man s necessities Bot i As physician and nurse As no nurse could engaged. His perseverance in this goodly work drove him from two boarding houses but he preferred his duty to his Comfort. A generous Public will Reward him. Tub Blakeley s.

In about 18 months afterwards the water was returned to the plaintiff and to its natural Channel a freshet that washed away the canal but the company in 1849, in repairing the canal again diverted Tho water As they had previously done. Held that the statute of 1830, enacting that applications for damages for Promroy taken for the construction of the Public works should made within two years next after the same was taken Possession of or they should not paid common ced running at the first diversion of Tho water in 1845. That statute is not founded upon Tho pres Timpton that the damages have been actually paid within the two years but upon the ground that two years i a reasonable Timo for asserting the claim and that if it is not asserted in that time it should discharged and the Cost of the Public works thereby lessened.

Jtfir., Vai Fei some time since the editor of the Western Chriatian advocate in refer inter to the claim of the slave Hunter Ellington to the body and mul of in Freeman made several very appropriate remarks in regard to the institution of slavery and the character of slave Hunters whom he pronounces As a body to Quot without principle Honor dignity honesty truth or these characteristics Are doubtless correctly applied and i was glad to see them from the pen of. Our Veteran editor and divine ret. O. Elliott. But a sentence follows immediately which partakes so much of sectarian character that i ask Leate to make a Short comment upon it. My criticisms shall made with the utmost kindness. The re. Mark to which i allude reads As follows Quot we never knew of a member of the methodist Episco Sal Church to pursue a slave the general Metho is sentiment has been if they non let them run we will never follow them we Are glad they Are gone Quot now if the above were the fact it would present strange anomaly. Why should not slave holding methodists give Chase to their escaping chattels equally with baptists Fresl Teri ans catholics or jews Slavey exists in that Church the same As in any other is tolerated both theoretically and practically is a subject of Disep Lenaiy prot vision and regulation and even this same anti slavery editor condemns All Effort to exclude it from the Church while it remains in the state Why then should not methodists pursue their slaves Quot with alacrity Quot As Well As others As a matter of fact they do and nothing but the of religions party could have blinded our editor to the fact. But when men Are Quot set for the defence of the Church Quot it is hard to Quot screw their courage to the sticking place Quot and Tell an new come truth on their own fraternity As soon As on others. I propose or. Editor to give a few cases of methodist slave catching taken from among Many for the express Benefit of brother Elliott. I am somewhat afraid however that he will forget them All Amsl he writes the next la Dation of the methodist Church. I begin with a Case of or. Gorsuch of Mainland. This gentleman a member of the he. Church pursued his slave to Christiana declaring he would take him or die in the attempt and. Was accordingly killed in a felonious and piratical attack on the inalienable rights of his neighbor and died As a fool Dieth. Or. Bond in the Chris Tian advocate in an obituary notice characterized this Man Hunter As. Quot a pious and devoted Christian in the to and truest sense of the such christianity May suit or. Bond but cannot pass current with me. The next Case i will introduce is that of a Del r Drake of Zanesville Ohio a member of the Church North and professing Sanctification. This Man decoded a poor fugitive once his property under the Laws of Virginia from this Quot Side of the Ohio across to Parker Burgh under a pretence of giving him free papers and had his agent who seized him for Parker and put him into uie Southern Market to interminable bondage the Case of Ellington at Indianapolis is too Well known to require More than a Mere illusion. This methodist not Only gave chasm to his slave but not being Able to overtake him concluded to catch or. Freeman who would about As Valti Able and had almost succeeded penury to accomplish his object when providentially such testimony was elicited As Defeated the purposes of the Ruffian tyrant. A methodist class Leader in Brown coun o., not far from the residence of the writer rent nine from his meeting on the Sabbath seeing a. Coloured Man whom he suspected for a runaway slave gave Chase with dogs and clubs caught his Viscum put him in an infidel s smoke House took him next Day before a methodist Jude who delivered him up to his captor who took him into Kentucky and received fifty dollars As the Reward of his Niqui a somewhat better Job than that of Judas Iscariot and to this Day he retains the Price of blood and to those who censure the transaction he asks triumphantly what he shall do with the Mon i can brother Elliott inform him shall it go into the missionary fund the anti slavery Public Are familiar wit the Case of or. Reece of Baltimore. _ Here was another methodist slaveholder professing Sanctification. The Rev. Or. Hall on his Way to the general conference at Pittsburgh staid Over Sabbath with this brother and was so favourably impressed with his piety that he saw proper in a Public print to introduce it to notice. As to his slaves or. Hall told us they were to free in accordance with the dying request of his wife whom he inherited them. But to the next thing we know of this sanctified slaveholder he is dragging Horace Pires act and consigning him to return less bondage. Additional cases to Alm it any reasonable extent might adduced of methodist Man Hunters but let the above suf Bce f or the present. We Hope that when or. Elliott shall find occasion hereafter to castrate those guilty of the curse and crime and blood of slavery and we Hope such occasions will frequently occur that he will not always remember to forget that Quot Gui Tiest among the guilty Quot stands the methodist Church both clergy and membership. I am however de. Cidely pleased with the signs of Progress even with brother Elliott and tie Western Christian advocate. Fot Many years since this same editor declared through the paper that the que Stiim of slavery could not discussed pro nor con in the columns of the advocate. Now he puts in some capital blows. He is undoubtedly growing in Grace. A. Smith. Gerrit Smith s second speech was a most Happy retort upon or. Philips of Alabama. Hear or. Smith Quot or. Philips when reviewing my speech a fortnight ago kindly informed me that i am but a sen Timen twists and not a statesman. To use almost precisely his words though i had attained some notoriety in the country As a sentimentalist i had never risen to the dignity of a statesman i beg that gentleman to to patient with me. I May yet become the dignified heartless frigid conventional sort of being that makes up the accepted and current idea of a statesman. They say that Congress is a capital place for making a statesman of one who is willing to come under the process. They say so for the reason that Congress is a capital place for get tint rid of All sentiment tend sympathy and conscience. Now. I cannot say that i am very ambitious to have realized in my own person the popular idea of a statesman. Nevertheless. I beg the Gendeman to patient with me. When shall have been in Congress a few weeks longer i May so far have los tiny heart and killed my soul As to a candidate for the honors of a statesman. And then the honorable gentle wan will no doubt willing to take me his own right hand and instal me into Thia dignity which he and other statesmen so self complacently so much for that. And Well said too. Bit How it came to pass that the pro slavery hosts did not Bolt and refuse to vote for the in Aham resolutions is what we cannot explain. But they were perhaps in the fix of travellers on the canal approaching a Bridge. A shrewd Liberty Man cries out All in favor of Hale Stop Quot Bridge Bridge Quot cries the Boatman. And Down they squat for Hale. The House was near a Bridge. Gerrit knew it. To vote for the resolutions was Manifest destiny. So or. Smith makes the Best pop Ible use of the very Nick of time. Said or. Smith Quot pass these resolutions or. Speaker pass them promptly and unanimously. By doing so we shall Honor humanity and Honor ourselves doing so we shall rebuke our government for having taken three years ago the diabolical position that they who rescued their kidnapped and oppressed and outraged and crushed Brethren Merit at the hands of this government fines and imprisonment. Pass these resolutions and Yon will put the Seal of your emphatic condemnation on that diabolical position and you will cheer the hearts of those who have rescued such poor Brethren and others who Are determined to Resene them whenever they can get the Opportunity to do so. Pass these resolutions and these past and these future rescuers of the most wronged of All men will re Oice in knowing that upon the principle of these resolutions and upon the Pri Cimfe which some on this floor have advocated them they Are entitled not to suffer fines Aud imprisonment but to receive Gold and they did pass an immense vote. Saccs Soful swi Rauno at a swindle has been perpetrated it is said on quite a number of members of Congress lately. A Well dressed individual would Cui upon a gentleman resent him a personal letter of introduction from , esq., and ask hit to subscribe to a fund for the Relief of the poor of that City or. Corcoran having with his usual liberality headed the list with some hundreds of dollars. Hon. Gerrit Smith subscribed and paid $50, and Imite a number of gentleman paid sums varying rom $5 to $25. One of them addressed or. Corcoran a note thanking him for having called his attention to the subject and having Given him an Opportunity to Aid in the benevolent Enterprise. Or. Corcoran replied mined lately that he knew nothing of the matter and it was then ascertained that the letters of introduction were forged. The rogue has not been heard from since. He must have made some hundreds of dollars his Cool operation. A ;
