The Philanthropist (Newspaper) - July 3, 1838, Cincinnati, OhioFok had been viewed by Southern men. He reminded the the the convulsion the Missouri question contras their Omri Riveness at that time with their indifference Bronson justified the course the committee in reporting the Bill. It we. True that the lends bed not Blly for Sale but the it amp a Fofo had been extinguished to t Large portion them and they would soon be thrown into Market. Although the settlers had not a fee simple in their forms Many Theu and Lessee and were legally the soil others held Preemption rights and would become citizens As soon As the Sajet were proclaimed and land offices Soto bashed. A Section country extending three Hundred Wales up the Mississippi and from fifty to eighty Miles West it and containing some 0to richest and most Fertile fond m amends would be shortly thrown open for a darned the principle that territorial government a de Huid sales. The very opposite principle had been acted in All the the philanthropist. A edited by 0. Bailey . Cincinnati tues May morning duly 3, 1838. In it amp Tom Laws would be passed end adventurers Koukl go into the wilderness and it would be As easy to Stop the a a Ogof the Sun As this course things in America. The pm Wisdom was to provide for it. There Lay to the wet the Mississippi an extant this territory much he c than the state new York and from in situation people had different interests and feelings in Many re Peete from those in that portion the territory East the Mississippi and it was extremely inconvenient to them to have their seat government As at present across the River. He complimented a Thompson the frankness with which he had stated his objections to the Bill but reminded him that however the aspect this measure might threaten the South it was vain to deprecate the multiplication Northern states. The ordinance 1t87 provided Lor one new one within the former Northwestern territory and the rejection this Bill could not prevent it. East Wisconsin was rapidly fining with people and As soon at k contained 60,000, they might demand a state organisation and it could not be denied them. As to the Case Texas that was wholly different Texas was a portion foreign soil but these new states were to be formed out our own territory. Or. Pope corroborated these views and quoted a provision in the treaty Louisiana in which it was solemnly stipulated that the whole that Region should be incorporated into the United states. Tho new states which the seemed so much to dread were not ready for and and had not asked it. That question therefore not Yel come up. East Wisconsin had asked and a Bill was now reported to admit her into the Union. He deprecated the attempt to draw a line Between free mid slave states in the Valley the Mississippi it utterly vain. The population that Valley was one and indivisible in feeling and interest and so they must Ever remain. As to the oct that the population the proposed territory consisted squatters the More extensively bit True the stronger was the argument for the Bill. If people had got our land the sooner we put Laws Over them toe better. He adverted to the history the other territories now slates and strenuously vindicated the squatters from the injurious imputations so often cast upon them. They set up no claim Adverse to that the United states but looked to the United states for Legal title and be utterly denied that they were trespassers according to the True intent and meaning any Law now in Congress had never viewed them As such in proof which he adduced the oct that when they had been forcibly removed from the Cherokee Cessions government bad Given them floats for 300 acres each a a remuneration for the lands from them. He was in favor having a territorial government established As Early As possible. As tour was be should not oppose its reception because it was a slave state nor should he advocate it that that consideration had nothing to do with the question in his View. He anticipated that Many that were now slave states would become free states. _ Elfr. Thompson observed that what . Bronson bad said about the ordinance �?T87 afforded but another into show with what complacency men sometimes unto instruct others in what they did not understand ves. Ujj Freihat ordinance was examined it would be found that this fa3k mares nest which the honorable gentleman had discovered did not contain to much As the Slidell an egg. The ordinance did not assign the Mississippi As the Western Border the new state which the Geni Lemon had spoken. Or. T. Then read from the ordinance to a How a a a it was in terms which could not now be complied with Alfo therefore no argument Lay from the boundaries there ass ened. The Mississippi was the Wes Tern Boundary the Union then but we had since acquired Louisiana and might extend to the West without violating the spirit the ordinance. As to waiting As proposed by foe gentleman from Kentucky . Pope till these new states came knocking at the door Congress for admission it would then be too late to raise the question new a a the time to consider it before they were risen to Zzz. Wbk. by the South Noth ing Bat a a hindering Power in the Senate which should be sufficient to resist the accomplishment any designs against the slave states. This was the ground their anxiety for die admission Texas. A _ . C. Shepard opposed the Bill. He denied that the Propof must be without Law if it was rejected. The settlements were very few one it Green Bay one at Milwaukee and some scattered population along the Banks the Mississippi constituted the whole. The rest the was a wilderness. They might get along very Well seder the Wisconsin government at Madison. As to the alleged difficulty in the administration Justice that could be obviated by the erection a new judicial District West the . S. Speke with some severity against squatters and a pm Fivi Tsih Dree to Dion amp he a Titi would a amp action such tin those people had been duly punished for a what was not their own. He would be for going there with an armed Force and putting them out by the Strong hand. If this government could not protect what was its own property it was time it was dissolved. He dented any advantage from scattering our population Over new Orionn and contended that the nation would be happier and More prosperous if restrained within narrower limits. As to the question free and slave states he had resolved not to speak it in that House but he kept his eyes open and transmitted to Bis constituents a faithful and minute account a ii font was said Ami done Here which had any reference to that subject. It was but a few Days a Nee the House had Board beam croaking and Dove like lamentations about the Fate Tbs poor Cherokee Bat the same gentlemen from whom they came were now very eager to Estabi feh a new territory and have the Indian title extinguished prep Ralo by Tov White settlements. He invited them if they were m much opposed to fraudulent Indian treaties to oppose with Himi too Purchase any More Indian lands for All the treaties were and would continue to be fraudulent and corrupt. The United states had land enough our people did not any More. He was against buying any More. This was the tree line policy though he had Little Hope Ever seeing it adopted. Elfr. White Kentucky defended the Bill with ear Tinam. That it was in strict accordance with the uniform practice the government heretofore. He was surprised at the argument Mercer who seemed to fret to that Congress should never erect two territories contiguous to each other and Mart not therefore create a territory Iowa till Wisconsin became a state. He numerous instances in our part history where his i done. There was no need the population should be free holders. If their number amounted to five thousand they might be erected into a territory. The government was for men Dot for lands. And there were As Many if not More people now in Iowa than had been in All the other territories put together when they were successively erected.

We forewarned our readers again and again that slave holders had not abandoned tia nefarious project that it was permitted Only to slumber until a More convenient season and that All the move tents in Texas with regard to withdrawing its petition for annexation were delusive. Nothing we were sure but the decisive demonstration Public opinion at the North had prevented the annexation and nothing hereafter can prevent it but the vigilant unabated United opposition the free states.

Wilder in his letter says a a can you not procure a delegation from the Parent society attend our meeting a if they do not Send a delegation they will neglect their duty that Sally rather that is our opinion. Surely Indiana needs help a i do not expect a Large convention yet it is not the less important that one should be held our state has abundant materials for abolitionists but it must be aroused and brought into the work. We need an agent. In fact without one we Shal always be the Back ground. We have a society at Bath 2 Miles from this place Fairfield 12 Miles West Ohio with 25 members. It organized in March last. I shall probably sent you another list names before the 30th the month but i thought that i ought to let you kno w what we were doing now. We invite attention to the following communication from messes. P. And k. Grave. A in conformity with a re quart Home our anti slavery friends Decatur 00., and an appointment Tbs Middle Fork White water anti slavery society we have keen seeking out a place making arrangements foe. For the proposed anti slavery convention. For this purpose a few Days ago a Rode out to Milton a Village situated in the Western part this county where we procured accommodations. We obtained application to the trustee the prior Lego occupying a Large commodious Public school House 44 feet Keg and 23 wide and furnished with seats. Our reasons in preferring this Section the state for the convention if the circumstance its being about the Centre representation As we presume it will be calculating by the average distance the present anti slavery organizations there being but few societies formed in the Western part the state is not sufficient a few remarks descriptive its advantages for that purpose May Serva As additional. A Milton is situated about 30 Miles from the Eastern tins the state in the midst one the most populous sections the state in ironed every hand by Large and Beautiful forms. From one position this with four other villages May be grasped in one View All which Are situated near the great National Road. Other advantages might also be enumerated As its near situation to Ohio thus accommodating those our members rending the Western Frontier that state also making it better Aoe een Hie to our Eastern friends other states the attendance whom we will not Only gladly Welcome but do respectfully invite the occasion. Judging from the interest that seems to be in and about Milton in relation to Tbs proposed convention a presume a numerous attendance from that place and neighbourhood May be expected the Ocea Sion which will doubtless contribute to Render the convention int Eneim end profitable. The exposition dissenting opinions s. Expected to be offered the occasion. And for foe Honor Milton we will any to one and All that be Ritsert fear a Elk outrage need not be apprehend Edof Auy Bho is yoked with slavery. She is not so recklessly regard Fol tas Peculiar interests oppression As to wans a Erar news and blood against the breath word. To Hepe that Deere coadjutor in the great cause human if Tartre every Fifon to the slave and a integrity the Union in the state Wil respond Jwo aptly to the Call from Decatur a tasty lifes we will not abandon the Prospect a convention being called As soon As practicable. We propose the first second Day monday in the fifth month september to Convene at 10 clock a. M. Let us meet few Many Indiana is in the rear. Let her then ply her strength with redoubled Zeal and Diligence. We should almost do injustice to our feelings not to say that our deepest interests Are involved in the Prospect Ufa convention. The cries a suffering people the warnings oppression and the voice conscience simultaneously cry out come let us reason together let us link our Faith buckle our Armor concentrate our energies move Forward in perfect concatenation till the giant oppression shall yield before the mighty Phalanx moral Force. The trumpet Call invitation bursts from every Quarter. Warnings entreaties solicitations Are showering around us to impel us Ward in the great cause Liberty and humanity. And a shall we sleep shall we act a we remain with unceasing a aspect thine in the cause the oppressed a Kersey grave Pusey Milton is in the South Western part Wayne county and quite convenient to the people Frank in and Decatur counties. Our friends in these three counties As Well As in Jefferson will therefore find no difficulty we presume in agreeing Milton As a suitable place for the convention. Three other places it will be remembered have teen named a Indianapolis Crawfordsville and Greene a 8 tie. Indianapolis is in the Centre the state but there is we believe no society there and there is no Assurance that it would furnish the necessary accommodations. Crawfordsville and Greencastle Are both far Over in the Western part the state removed some distance from those counties in which abolitionists Are most numerous and too far off to secure the attendance Many the friends from Ohio. Carroll and Cass counties Are in the Northern half thu state but to Ransport the farthest Point in this direction from which we could expect Many abolitionists is Only about one Hundred and Twenty Miles from Milton. These Are the two principal abolition counties in the Northern part the state and we doubt not that the friends there would be quite willing in View All the advantages presented by Milton that it should be selected As the place meeting. As for Morgan Monroe and Owen counties they would find it still More convenient am seem to agree that the time for holding it should be somewhere in the earlier part september. We Hope that in our next number we shall be Able to announce with certainty both time and place. Cincinnati wrong impression prevails with some persons in regard to the prosecution the Cincinnati rioters. Why it is asked were not the influential citizens who engaged in the doings the Market House meeting and its committee Why were they not prosecuted Why must the whole weight the Law fall 011 the minor culprits in the affair one the counsel for the prosecution dwelt at much length this Point and took occasion from it to argue that the abolitionists were cowardly sneaking mean spirited foe. This person is Welcome to his opinion and we Are very sure that no abolitionist win give himself any anxiety about u. But for the satisfaction Many our friends we will state that it was the Earnest desire the executive committee the state society that . Pugh would bring his suit against the officers the Market House meeting and the More prominent members the Market House committee for guilt these individuals was regarded As peculiarly aggravated. But their desire was decidedly overruled by the advice counsel. We Are not aware that abolitionists have Ever been distinguished by an undue reverence for great men. The South requires the witnesses the late trial the rioters testified that one the defendants in conversation with him had approved the destruction the philanthropist press remarking that a a a South required a demonstration that kind a the South required it exalted motive a mistake Are informed that we were mistaken in stating that judge Wright was one the counsel employed by the defendants in the riot trial. The last Western messenger contains fat Good article the subject a negro apprenticeship in the West such an article is peculiarly seasonable in Kentucky in View the agitation the convention question. The editors that state we would suggest with much deference could not do a better thing just now than bring before their readers the whole truth in relation to emancipation in the British colonies. It certainly is not the part Wisdom for a Community which contemplates the ultimate abolition slavery within its limits to shut out the Light that Noble act Justice by which 800,000 slaves were at once transformed into free labourers. The Greentown anti slavery society at its annual meeting april 3, 1838, elected the following officers for the present year. We. Karnaghan Prest Robt Wilson Sec by. Solomon Flack treasurer. The Church. Methodist episcopal Church Troy conference. This conference met in Kee Reviue n. Y.,� june 6th. The same course proeee4ings was attempted against abolitionists As had been pursued in the new York conference. In the examination Daft footer such questions asked As the the brother circulate Zions watchman a a is he the author such and such communications published in the watchman a did the brother attend the Utica convention a a is the brother the individual whose name is attached to a letter published in the watchman approving the Utica convention a the watchman furnishes some rare specimens Fohy. One a a brother was objected to because he had published certain communications in this proscribed paper. His Case was referred to a committee which after receiving his confession that he hid been imprudent in the use language and infested a bad spirit in his articles reported favourably. Thereupon his character was passed. Another a a brother at an Early session the conference in debate with a few the preachers slavery had said a that if the Christian and voc amp the and journal should be opened to the Fuu and free discussion the subject nearly All our preachers and people would become when his character was called up for examination it wok objected to account this saying and a some other similar remarks equally Obj Eifiona his base was referred to a coif Mitilee he before them his imprudence the report Morable and his character passed Fout Ais n was withheld my Howe said Quot that he considered the watchman a one the most wicked and abominable papers in the s. Beckley says a i was introduced to brother Howe and called him brother. He said he wished he could Call me brother but he could not he regarded me As As a poor Back Slider a but still loved me in common with other sinners. He said he must regard every supporter Zions watchman As an enemy to the Church they Are not they cannot be its friends and he wished that every abolitionist would leave the Church without a an aged and respectable brother in this conference during its present session gave the following definition abolitionism a it is said he a to take a Nigger your Back and run Over the advocate and journal the Bishops and general conference trampling them All under several a a Brethren were arraigned before the conference but according to . Beckley not a single Point doctrine was retracted nor any doubt expressed with regard to the Utility and correctness abolition measures by any one the abolition members. They would do nothing More than acknowledge some imprudence is which had been betrayed in their efforts to Advance a Good cause. An attempt was also made to pass a prescriptive Resolution against the watchman similar to that which had been adopted by the new York conference but it did not succeed. One remark. The great object the ruling men in the methodist episcopal Church in the East is to exterminate abolition. These strange and unjustifiable measures Are taken against their ministers simply because they Are abolitionists. True this is is not assigned As the reason it is found convenient to arraign them because they have written a certain article taken a certain paper attended a certain convention. These however Are Only the acts by which their abolition in a is manifested. If they did not do something they would be no abolitionists. But it is precisely because they do something because they act out their abolition principles that they Are thus subjected to such inquisitorial despotism. Persistence in this attempt to coerce conscience to tyrannize Over menus opinions while it can Avail nothing towards the Protection the a Peculiar institutions the South a will most assuredly endanger and in a probability subvert the Peculiar institutions the m. E. Church. A a new a Ugias committee five was appointed to consider and report the propriety recommending to the general conference so to alter the discipline As to admit no slave Holder to the Church. This re port will have to be Eon tiered and acted in every Anno Al conference in the Union prior to the next general con Ference 1840.

A those who recollect the circumstances under which he formerly resigned the same office will not be surprised should <4 yet be enrolled As a dignitary the anti slavery so emancipator. A a a methodist protestant Tel education coloured people. There is a manual labor institution for the Edu cation youth located within a Little distance Lawrenceburg Indiana. It is a methodist protestant Church institution under the control the Ohio annual conference and from its establish ment about two years since up to the present time has depended chiefly for its Success the Rev John Clark principal agent and superintendent. A coloured boy the son major. Of Wheeling twelve . Fourteen years old who had received very Liberal education for his years was lately sent by Rev. Nicholas Snethen to be placed under the care . Clark with the understanding his fathers part that he was to have such educations facilities As might be thought proper. Major is respectable and wealthy coloured citizen w heeling a member the methodist protestant Church and a a Quot a contributor to the College to the amount $133, $33 which have been paid. One his sons is now a student in one the Eastern colleges. The arrival the lad at the Lawrenceburg in situation created quite a sensation. A vulgar fellow who works the College farm was greatly scandalized symptoms disaffection elsewhere broke out certain negro haters took care to spread strange stories in the Village die Hoy was insulted and abused while . Clark and his family were subjected to the rudest insolence and the meanest persecution and threatened with Lynch Law. Meantime . Clark had written to the Board trustees at Cincinnati for instructions. An answer was returned to which were appended the names four five trustees a the purport which was that As the a contributions were made and the institution got up for the instruction White persons coloured students could not be another letter the same Date was also forwarded a purporting to be written by order the Board requesting the immediate removal the coloured person from the College before the reception the letter . Clark finding himself unable to protect the poor lad against abuse returned him to his father. What renders the whole affair peculiarly disgraceful to the trustees is that the prime mover All this silly excitement and mean mischief was the vulgar Man already referred to who seemed to have had More influence with them than had their faithful agent . Clark. It will be nothing More than Bare Justice for the Board to refund to major a. The $33 he has paid them and also to release him from the balance his engagement. Several our abolition friends Are subscribers to this institution. They will readily determine what course to pursue. Henceforth until the trustees choose to change their position let every body know that the methodist protestant College near Lawrenceburg is in league with the oppressor. From the female my fryers the Church Putnam. But having beef Hind led hitherto a number considerations now induce me to do it publicly. Quot Imp Quot the memorial came into my hands the evening after the formation fhe two assemblies. For various reasons i considered neither them As the constitutional Assembly the presbyterian cd Birch and had refused to sit As a commissioner in either. I was anxious however to have some action the memorial wherever it would be most Likely to do Good. There seemed to be but Little Hope from the old school party. For some years past they have discovered a disposition to trample very to be touched. And it has since appeared in the minutes their convention for prayer and consultation that the members had solemnly pledged themselves to one another that a the subject slavery should not be agitated discussed in the session the ensuing general As it regards the new school Assembly i had just As Little Hope. There appeared to be no disposition in that body publicly to lift a Finger against slavery until it became popular to do so. The opinion often expressed by the members in conversation was a that it would be very improper to meddle with that exciting1 subject still i considered it important to have their decision.

Resolved that every professed Christian is guilty before god and his Ferow Man who does not open his Mouth for the dumb and Pray few the Nion prevailed to some extent in the West last temporal and spiritual deliverance the Down for the philanthropist the two general assemblies. To Horace Nye esq., Putnam dear brother a i had intended immediately after my return from Philadelphia to acknowledge the receipt your favor enclosing a memorial to the general Assembly 011 the subject slavery year that those who in any Way opposed the new school party were unfriendly to the cause abortion. Besides it seemed reasonable to suppose that those whose sympathies were so moved for those synods which had been stripped their ecclesiastical privileges by an act despotism would at least open their Mouth in behalf near a three millions their fellow men Many them their Brethren in Christ deprived their wives and children stripped the ownership their own bodies and above All forcibly deprived the Means which god has Given to save their souls. Accordingly to meet what i supposed the wishes the Memoria lists in Putnam and to a amp be myself from reflections the memorial through a member the Assembly from Michigan was Laid before the committee Bills and overtures. On the next Day that member informed me that a leading member the committee had expressed his utter unwillingness to take up the memorial. On the same Day a leading member the Assembly expressed to me his wish that it should be withdrawn and his fears that considering the sensitiveness out Southern Brethren to meddle with that exciting subject would ruin them. He was informed that it could not be taken Back. The appearance the following minute their doings which i saw yesterday in a new York paper copied from the Philadelphia observer the Organ that party puts the extinguisher All Hope help from that Assembly. A the committee to whom were referred sundry memorials the subject slavery reported that the applicants for reasons satisfactory to themselves have withdrawn their papers. Whereupon the committee were discharged. The report was How Are we to understand this did the Memoria lists the applicants take stage and arrive in Philadelphia just in time to avow their conversion and take Back their papers will any one Stu Latify that grave Assembly by supposing that by the applicants they mean the member members their own body through whose hands memorials from a distance happened to come before them no doubt that member could find satisfactory reasons for consenting to Send Back the memorial nearly three millions slaves in the South a for reasons satisfactory to themselves a have withdrawn their applications for Freedom have never presented them. The truth is this minute is a bungling attempt to gain popular favor by avoiding the question slavery. And it shows How easy it is for merely cunning men by a Little shuffling to outwit themselves and then perhaps chuckle at the trick which they fancy they have played their neighbors. In the Days stir lord Luke xxx. 1�?3, a a Fie chief priests and scribes with the elders the people a ice Only orthodox and constitutional Assembly Potfay to repentance All their sins were applied to for a decision the following important question a a a the baptism John was it from heaven men a thin was one the exciting questions those times.

It is evident from the minutes the two assemblies in Philadelphia that they Are engaged in a hard race for slave holding favor and to consistent abolitionists it will be a matter but Little concern which wins the prize. It is hoped that we will avoid All entanglements which would hinder obedience to the High command a open thy Mouth for the dumb in the cause such As Are appointed for destruction.

During a protracted meeting four Days in the congregation that place in which brother Mcfarland and myself preached every Day we had much abolition discussion and were attentively heard and Well received.

Be that however As it May we Are inclined to think the philanthropic labors fee editor might have been called into requisition at a Point nearer Home and if those sheets that Are sent to the South to convey lessons morality to the so styled ignorant and Grout immoral slave Holder were distributed among fee citizens off Cincinnati and As violent attacks made upon fee glaring i moralities that place As upon one our civil institutions if we should not look for every desirable effect i should at All events form a More exalted idea the genuineness the professions those under whose supervision the philanthropist is issued. Strange indeed feat any the citizens Cincinnati whose hearts Ere overflowing with the purest feelings Benevolence should be compelled to it look to w Point so Distant As fee South for an object . Which to Shower the superabundance feet philanthropy. Strange indeed feat in a City so pregnant wife vies and wretchedness As Cincinnati notoriously is the great and the Good should not have formed More Correct conceptions the Mode operation in order to effect their desired reformation in fee morals the a Merican people. If fee editor the philanthropist Wilt convince us by plausible statements feat the morals his neighbors Haye taken so favourable a Elf luge that it is no longer necessary to watch and guard them show us that fee scores and hundreds grog shops which formerly infested his native place have been changed to schools literature and morality and feat the haunts female degradation Hose antechamber hell have been converted into seminaries female learning and piety a if so we will excuse Bis sympathies As for As the White population the South is concerned. We confess that in these particulars there is room for improvement amongst us and a Large Field is open for those who can find no objects Charity at Home. But there is still another Point which our minds must be put to rest before we can consent to receive instructions from fee food abolitionists Cincinnati. We must be convinced feat fee condition our slaves is worse than feat fee free negro population Cincinnati either As regards morality Liberty. The negroes the South am the slaves masters who Calina their services and in Exchange wife but few exceptions clothe them Well and feed them bountifully and if not Frota principle at least from Good policy exercise Over them a mild influence by which their morals Are preserved to an extent unknown amongst free negro population. The free negroes Cincinnati Are All slaves to the cruelties want and vice unheard in slave states. Drunkenness and indolence Are their besetting sins the influence which leads them to fee commission every crime in the dark catalogue immorality. What say you to this contrast . Editor could you after having witnessed fee deep degradation your negro population their nightly riots and Sabbath breaking Bear testimony with us to fee Good behaviour our slaves you would not regard it in fee tight fiction but a the result accurate and actual observation. In conclusion we will yet add feat when there is no longer any room demand for your philanthropic Labora at. Home and when we have evidences feat your own and fee condition your negro population in a moral and civil Point View is Superior to ours we will gladly receive instructions but until then we can place no Confidence in your professions if the editor the Herald had reflected for a few moments he might have known our a a object in requesting an Exchange. An excitement is now abroad Over the whole civilized world hostile in All its influences to the system slavery. This excitement has resulted in the annihilation slavery in the British dominions is the eve producing the same result wherever the sovereignty France is acknowledged and will Ere Long so revolutionize the Public opinion and policy every nation in Europe that slavery in their estimation 1 and codes Law shall Bear the same Brand As that which the Laws great Britain and the United states have now fixed the slave Trade.
