A meet tog of the Chi Izetti of Sardinia mud vein try was held november 21st, 1838 Eli Huggins was died to the chair Ami James Shaw was chosen Secretary. After a recital of the proceedings of a previous meeting preparatory to this the Foitl wide report and resolutions were adopt led a the Foini Pittee appointed at a meeting of the citizens of Sardinia nel4. Nov. 1st, 1838, to pre sent to this meeting a statement of facts in connection with the arrest and imprisoning iii of the Rev. John b. Mahan of this place respectfully report a that for the last six months our neighbourhood has been unusually infested with negro Hunters who have in several instances and in various ways displayed Itie demoralizing in hence of slavery. They have prowled about the neighbor Hood by night watch the houses and it is believed searched the bams and out houses and a robbed the Grainfield of our citizens in one Case a kentuckian and a rabble of vile Fellows which he had collected about thirty in number were prowling through the Woods on the third a Bath of last september. As they came near a lipase the occupant went out to see what was going a on. When he approached near enough to see the a company judging their business from their appear a Ance he concluded to return again to his own a House. As he turned the kentuckian saw Hon and ordered him to Stop but thinking he had a right to do As he pleased he gave no head to the a order. The kentuckian started towards him and repeated the command to Stop. The Man then quickened his Pace and the kentuckian spurred has horse to the Gallop acid overtook the individual by Lime to arrived at his own enclosure and while he w Tsia the act of jumping or failing Over the Fence the neg Hunter Drew a pistol and bred at him. The Ball glanced the Rad lie sat the instant before. Another Case of the same kind occurred on the 24tli of last june. A kentuckian with a mercenary went 10 the House of a neighbor and inquired for a stray horse. He professed to be an abolitionist this was also on tie sabbat i the Man knowing that abolitionists were not in the Lla Bilof Hunting Lite Ewsii the Sabbath suspected All was not fair charged them with being negro emitters and invited them to leave his premises. The hireling complied but the Kentucky m refused. The Man got his axe and repeated his order. Tie Kent Khan Drew a pistol and snapped it at him. The Man advanced and the kentuckian commenced a Retreat but before leaving the premises be turned and snapped Hia pistol once or twice More and afterwards took deliberate aim and snapped again at the citizen. The pistol was charged for he Firel it on storting away. At the same time William Greathouse a convicted Feior of Mason county ky., who afterwards procured the arrest of or. Mahan was also in the Negh boyhood several Days Humting a fugitive. After searching through the country for some Lime he concluded that his slave was at the House of i edit Pettijohn. He and his mercenaries traversed the country for five or six Miles around Sardinia and having succeeded in col Leeling a of Twenty or thirty Pereo is of the filth and of scouring of society within that Bounds marched to the House of or. Pettijoh a. The to whiff description of the proceedings thaw 1 Zatirac Teri from a letter written by mrs. Pettijohn to her re latin is in by. A Short time after the e vent took % aroused about eleven of clock at night by a coir Pany of strangers we knew not who. Alliey de i it her travellers. And he Ariel As any other traveler would who. Iii Glit have slopped to rest during the Day. Sometimes he was in Llie swim occupied by travellers Romeli Mea in or. Mahanes store on the opposite Side of the Street. He attended a Temperance meeting that was held near town that Day and part of the Day he spent in walking about town and talking with the citizens. In the evening he left or. Mahanes and went by invitation with an individual who resides in the neighbourhood Vitere he remained several Days and or. Mahan did not see him More than once or twice afterwards. We Are also confident that no time during his stay did Mahan conceal him or Aid in concealing him. An when he left the neighbourhood or. Mahan did not give him any assistance. We slate these things Bec Ause we know where he was while Here and How he went away. Respecting the other slave whom Mahan is charged with assisting to escape we have every Assurance Short of absolute certainly that or. Mahan never saw him nor Ever heard of him until two Days after he passed Giro High this Section of the country. And further we would state that at no time. Judging from the rout he travelled could he have been within four Miles of or. Mahanes to tie treatment which coloured persons generally receive at the House of m pc Matian we would stoic that they Are treated As other persons. T heir wan to a re while they Are at his House. If they Are Able to him it is Ipei id a Bell of Ripley John and William Mccoy of Russelville besides citizens of Adams co., is a fact of such general no lot piety in this county that few if and will dispute it. Isaac m. Beck Matthew Kincaid committee. James Shaw. Done if not they Are not Luried away empty on this account. If they Are objects of Charity he bestows As far As the lord gives him Ahi Lily. It is not known that he at any Luize secreted a slave. It being the object of this report to make out a full statement of the Facto connected wifi this outrage we deem it important to state some circumstances that accompanied and followed the arrest of or. . Sheriff Wood agent of ky., stated to one of the committee in the presence of another individual that the indictment was found for acts done in this slate. He also repealed the statement More than once to Mahan in the presence of his family. And we Are informed that on the trial which commenced last week there was no attempt to prove that Muhan was Ever in by. When several of his friends accompanied him to Georgetown for the purpose of getting out a writ of Hareas Corpus and applied to Thomas l. Lamar for counsel. He utterly refused to have any thing to do in the Case and said if he was employed Allego against the Grain Liat he was entirely opposed to All the abolition move men to and that he would ral her be employ etl on the other Side. Before another counsel could be obtained and a writ made out the officers from by. gone so iii time from Georgetown Oil their Way to by. Jos Ali Moore of Sardinia was Atigh oried by sheriff Blair to serve the writ. When he overtook the company or. Mahan was Riding beside sheriff Wood the agent from by. When the writ was read the agent observed that he could nut be Token Back on Lylial writ As it was directed to the sheriff of Brown county whereas it should Havel cd directed to the sheriff of Mason county for the in isomer Hud been delivered into Liis cd slowly by the sheriff of Brown county. He further stated that their Alto Roey had told them that a mistake of that kind would be made. Whether or. Mahan lad been delivered Over we cannot say but we think it highly probable he had not been for or. Rabb the Deputy sheriff by a lion or. Mahan was arrested. Was at sue Milf Blair a getting the certificate of transact written when the company Eft Georgetown and did not Start out after them or some Lime after they had left. Or. Crabb was in company going on to the River when he writ of a Meas corps was read. Whether this was not All a trick we leave the Reader to judge. Depositions.

The said Joseph Pettijohn doth depose and say that on the 14lh Day of sept., 1838, at a general Muster in said Brown county he Heartl a Man that had been in this neighbourhood for several Days from Mason co., ky., in search of two Black men and one mulatto who had run away from ky., say that he would give five Hundred dollars at any time to any responsible Man or set of men that would obligate themselves to deliver Jolt b.

They said they had a warrant to take him told him to Light a Candle. A and they would show their authority Cordingly he lighted a Candle and when they saw that he was alone they rushed furiously into the House snatched the Candle out of his hand presented a pistol to his breast and damned his abolition soul telling him if he opened his Mouth they would shoot Hon dead on the spot. They then commenced a search and after searching the House through to no effect they said he should item them where the negro was or they would give him five Hundred lashes with a cowhide.

Mihan who was in his own House swearing at him that there was Twenty five Hundred dollars offered in Kentucky. We. R. Frazier. Sworn to and subscribed this 1st Day of dec., 1838, before me m. Kincaid j. For testimony that Hamer was the counsel spoken of above we refer the Reader to the defence of the authorities of ky., and of their own conduct in the Case of Mahan published by David Wood and a. A w ods Orth which defence has been Piibe Lilied in Many o f the newspapers of this and o Lher states Days specified in the indictment a Ifil for several i they awry a club end stripped the bed cloth in a off of me 10 see at they said if the negro was not in bed with me. Uliey told us they would kill him if he did not Tell were the negro was. And on the other hand they offered him fifty dollars if he would Tell. So he feigned a Compromise and in a reeled them to Taos. Crap Behy a a Short Way of. It a away they went in High glee for or. Campol s a but they took the precaution to set a Gnant Over a us that we should not leave until they returned. they departed they told Pettijohn the if a did not find the negro Uliey would Retuis end kill they went to Campbells got ii to the House before he knew their business an searched it and not finding the slave they a turned to or a Petty John a but he and his family a a escaped from die ground. The rightly edging that they a might find difficulty in prose Qung further search concluded to disperse. A Lybber of them i re a to Raniag to air Homes pass through the coloured lament near this and violently broke into one houses to. Quot morning Greathouse started borne and said he would go to Kentucky and gel two Hundred men to come Over with him and Bairn Down Sardinia. In relation to the conduct of or. Mahan for which he was indicted in Mason county ky., we would me that a Man called at his tavern on the morn my or the 21t of june 1838. He remain cd m Sardina during the Day. He was treated As Days before and after can be proved we Shiok to the Salia faction of the Public. And his neighbors Are fully satisfied that he has not been in Mason county ky., for sore thug like Nineteen years but we do not deem it necessary to publish depositions to Surat a Lisle these statements for the reason that the contrary was not even inti mated on the trial a and we suppose that the evidence and pleadings will be Laid before the Public. Or. Mahan has always sustained an unblemished moral Clur Acter in this comr Annily where he has resided for the last fourteen years. He is highly esteemed for his integrity and Benevolence Aud firm adherence to principles by the intelligent portion of his fellow citizens. And the Only objection mate to him As a minister of the gospel was of the ground of his abolitionism and tee total ism 00 the subject of Temperance. If Here was an allegation made on the trial that Mahan acted through an agent a coloured Man in Maysville and that he received the fugitives in Ohio and., assisted them to make their escape. In reply we would say that we Are acquainted we a Mahanes opinions circumstances and business and some of us know pm re apse of every fugitive he Ever we think therefore that we Are competent to form a Correct opinion and we cd o not hesitate to disclose As our Settle d conviction that the whole matter in. Relation to Llic Agency business is false Withol. Tie least Shadow of foundation. There has for More than a year past been an unusual degree of hatred manifested towards or. Mahan by slave Hunters and slave holders. And rewards have been repeatedly offered by different persons for his abduction or assassination varying from five to Twenty five Hundred dollars see the depositions below we have not been Able to obtain As Many depositions to sustain this statement As we wished from the fact that the rewards have generally been offered to the mercenary assistants of the slave Hunters who Are unwilling to testify it the facts. But that rewards have been repeatedly offered not Only for Mahan but for a. Pettijohn we. A. Frazier and or. Beck of this Vicinity and Rev. John Rankin and or. Camp resold Rions. 1st, Reml Mihu that As our neighbor and Fel Low citizen the Rev. John b. , has been torn from his Fara ily and friends by the Kulli Oritt a of Kentucky and the Supin eness of the governor of this state acting together upon the oath of a perjured villain we recommend to the serious consideration of our fellow citizens the facts contained in the iof going report and Deposit ofus of the truth of which we have not the least duh la 2nd, resolved a that As the state of Ohio through her constituted authorities has neglected or refused to extend to or. Mahan that Protection which he As an orderly and upright citizen had a right to expect and Dein and we believe Justice requires that he be amply compensated by. The state for All the loss he May have sustained by this culpable disregard of the rights Liberty and safety of her citizens. 3rd, resolved that we invite All our fellow citizens who value their peace and personal rights to unite with us in petitioning the legis lature of this state to make an appropriation for the Relief of or. Mahan. 4th, re Soiot a that rewards offered by slaveholders in the slave states for the capture and delivery of citizens of the free Stales to them or their stale is derogatory to the character of the free states and insulting in the highest degree to their citizens. 5th, we deplore the dark and damning Dirac ice of s Lavery the Wickede St of which has brought reproach upon two, made their governors the dupes of a perjured villain. 6th, Jfe of eed Arhat As the rights of the state of Ohio and her citizens have been insulted and trampled upon in the arrest and abduction of or Mahan we Call Puii our legislators to interpose such Legal enactments As shall Preven such Outra Ges in future. 7lh, i Esolat Dye that the conduct of t. L. Hamer in refusing to give his services to maintain the insulted sovereignly of his own state Anc the rights of one of her citizens and in afterwards giving his counsel to Complete a conspiracy against both has forfeited Public Confidence and ought never again to be entrusted with Public or individual interest until he manifests repentance by its appropriate friits. 8th, resolved a that the proceedings of this meeting be published in the paper in this county and in the philanthropist.

Pro. Lem. Fervent piety the soil is peculiarly adapted to the growth of anti slavery principles. If therefore the South should break off from the Union anti slavery principles would soon take Root wherever there is genuine enlightened piety. If that is not to be found in the Sou tit it could not possibly sustain an Independent government. I hate slavery from my soul and any scheme that would safely bring to an end this horrible system of iniquity which has most assuredly far exceeded the most sanguine anticipations of its original satanic inventor i would most gladly embrace. I am not fully prepared to say that the anti slavery plan is this scheme.

Mahan has returned and he save there waa no Stop made Between Georgetown and ibo River for the Sake of completing the Transfer. He also a a is. Lha the believe the Transfer is not my a a mail they they got to Dover by. So it appears h u Haner not Only refs no Bis As Matanee Bof Alwy sue seated a trick by which Mahan was deprived of the Benefit of the writ of Hareas Corpus. Me. Far the .

Mahan in administering to the wants of the homeless and almost friendless coloured Man which has been made the pretext for his imprisonment for the last two months As a religious duty and instead of being intimidated by the treatment he has received we hereby declare to the world that we have waxed confident through his Bonds and that we intend to discharge this duty More conscientiously in time to come As god May give us Opportunity. 3rd, in View of the sufferings which our dear brother has endured and to which Wear daily 6yposed, we feel our need of More of to mind that was in Christ Jesus that when we suffer for Well doing we May take it patiently and not Dishonour that holy name by which we Are called. 4th, in the effects of brother Mahanes from the South. Farr the or. Bailey a sir i Send you the following extract of a letter received from a resident of the far South and in a state in which the majority of the people Are slaves. John Rankin. Dear brother a i have just finished Reading the philanthropist received by the last mail. The principles of abolition Are making rapid strides a it spreads like fire in stubble. In View of this feet 1 am compelled to ask myself if this Council or work he not of god is it not strange that being of men it should Ilius Prosper it is rapidly assuming a character and position among the subjects of general interest which Are intimately connected with the a weal or won of our common country that will not admit of silence or trifling. There is an array of vigorous Talent moral Power and respect Abiley in the ranks of the Anli slavery party that must command the respect of the most sneering opponent. If we of the South would Stop the Progress of anti Siave by principles it is the con?. Of Folly to Stop our and shut our it is and cry a there is no danger a and fits remain ignorant o f the to and merits of the Case while it is stealing like leaven through every part of the Community until Ere Long we shall be perfectly impotent and helpless before the influence of the North. Aud suppose we bestir ourselves what can we do a Why just what Many of the Southern editors Are now doing giving vent to great swelling words and nothing More. Should the South in a fit of madness succeed in the ruinous scheme of breaking off from the Union the slave holding states would be vastly worse. I am in some considerable degree apprised of the intellectual strength and moral influence which exist in the South and Mark my words for i speak advisedly a except three nay two of the slave holding states and in the remainder there is not virtue enough to sustain an Independent government ten years without anarchy and revolution. The following View of the is inject will bring any candid mind to the same conclusion. The mass of Mankind Are More influenced by their feelings than the Clear convictions of Jii Dement. The evils of slavery Appeal must powerfully to the sympathies of every heart where there is real humanity or philanthropy. Add to this number Liose who oppose the sys. Signatures to petitions to Congress &c., must also be circulated. Our cause Here As elsewhere progresses in proportion As Light is shed upon it and the people read and discuss the subject. I find the subscription paper to be an to show to whal extent the of individuals Are Neligh i ened on the Surjeet of human rights. Below i give you a table 1.n. A Liili you will notice the township societies the presi Deul a and secretaries for the present year the Nuin Ber of members funds raised or pledged previous to the 1st Jan a. 1839 the a. S. Newspapers taken tie. The amount of Money mentioned below does not however exactly correspond with the degree of Light and Benevolence that abound in the different societies for some bad contributed within a Short time previous tor tiny calling on them and had Given More or less liberally to other agents. It will be recollected that our townships on the w. Reserve Are 5 Miles Square. There Are 37 in this county each of which excepting perhaps 2 or 3, Hare one or More a. S. Societies. I would Here mention that brother b. Preston is Labouring faithfully and successfully in this and the neighbouring counties. Bro. P., As you doubtless have been informed is one of those ministers who was suspended by the Eris m. E. Co Forence at their late meeting at Painesville who was they would have us know a As much As Ever opposed to Severy a but it is incompatible with the duties of a minister to lecture on abolition attend a. S. Conventions circulate a. Publications a amp a. I quote from recollection not having la Weir resolutions at hand it seems that brother p. Had cont leaned the gag Resolution alias a up a civic Altos Bill a in. The n y. A. Conference a had said thai ii would lec Iuro As much As he pleased and circulate Zions As much. As. could or. A a he Mads exertions in is Vor of abolition meetings a and even was with dose Ermag f f the Sabbath by delivering Dol upon lectures Lacr Cima he child have the privilege of enjoying his own private opinion with Rchrd to slavery if he had been prudent enough to Tweep it to aim self hut on the whole a prefer thinking of iii a and of course has been a cast out a we will now leave this dear persecuted brother and proceed to the main subject. The abolition cause is advancing nobly in this part of the stale and probably among no Denom Nav on of christians More rapidly Thau the methodist. Having frequently been interrupted by other engagements since i commenced this Agency i have As yet Gune Over but about one third of the county. But having some knowledge of the whole should think that about one half of the residue Woi Ilu pretty nearly compare with the townships mentioned below As it respects Light and Effort and numbers. The remaining part one third must fell Short of this calculation. They have been blessed with More mobs but with less Light and fewer numbers. I report in part at this time As it May tend to a stir up other societies to additional Effort. Perhaps you will recommend a similar or better method to Advance Liis great cause.
