My of dear brother to ski the convention held at Harrisburg it was Quot agreed upon Between the delegates from the Western part of Pennsylvania and myself that i should proceed to that Region As a Oon As my in would permit with the View of Lal Toring there in tie duties of my Agency. Rut being desirous to Quot visit our National capital because i supposed in so doing i might Subserve the interests of Wiir cause i was induced to fake dub City in my Way a k Levi Mem org last tuesday coniing in the stage for Baltimore. Nothing oct Jirred to beguile away the tedium of our journey excepting a Little disputing on the sul Ector abolition until we had crossed the Maryland line some distance. A there we stopped to take in Pas angers. Among to Csc Wos a Young slave Holder belonging to a very wealthy family of that neighbourhood. He was a fair specimen of Southern a hods and one of the a proudest and most profane men i Ever saw. When i first noticed him which As in the tavern before we got into the stage he was amusing himself with a Well trained but very fierce butl41og which he would Start with a his after Sooke of Tito men Altrui the House and alien Stop him before he could bite then. The people of Trio Lavern endured his Over bearing rudeness with a very til Gnich but were unwilling As i supposed to Loso his Patron age by Eros song him. When he got into the stage he seemed disposed to give us a specimen of a his Spir if in the curses he heaped upon his Uno fending slave who brought his baggage to put into the Boot. After we started and had Rode some Dis Lance he espied a Hittle coloured boy on Ito Seback _ the Road. He demanded of him m a Fie re and profane manner whew it was doing there. Of course the reply of the Little boy at such a distance could not be heard for the noise of the coach. He called upon him to come up to him �?4he boy hesitated As the stage was Gei very cast. He then in a Lone and manner who seemed to frighten the boy ordered him to med at a to ride up along Side of the stage. This he did and Rode along with the stage until his of master so called had Catech ised him sufficiently. He then gave him some curses and dismissed him. These things a med to excite Little sensation among the other passengers but to me it was sex Quot of ceding by painful. It was painful to witness the of slavery upon the temper and morals of the Imbier it was touching to so the poor boys spirit broken with tyranny and crouching with abject fear before such a consummate Young Ruffian and it was a matter of painful in Flection to think that this fellow had absolute Power Over these and others of his fellow men and to have roof furnished dial he made abundant use of Diat when to ice the stage which he soon did one a a of the passe a is observe i that Ivas Young or. J m pm in a High fellow but having some Fine traits of character-�?4te Toses a Good Deal 6f Money by Gamin go but fortunately he is not totem Perates adding that he was now on his Way to Philadelphia after a Bunay slave. We arrived to Baltimore that evening and at 0 of clock the next Morii tog set out for Washington. As the country through which we passed is very Barren and devoid of interest i threw myself into a seat beside tie stove of the ear and gave myself a up to my own these i was not aroused until we reached a stopping place Abott twelve Miles from this City. Here As i was get Ting out of the car a Man opened the door of a baggage car which was next before Yiirs and was urging in a cored lady a come get in hurry away get to. was brought and put in and another in the same by. Then came the Mother with an in fit at her bosom the tears pouring Over her checks and sobbing As though her very heart was broken last of All came the sad looking father with his youngest boy they entered the car with the rest and the White Man first mentioned who it appeared was the purchaser along with them. When toe cars started the coloured people left behind slaves i sippy so came to toe door and kept bowing Farewell until we got out of sight. As we passed a Field in which some hands were at work toe poor follow just now spoken of As a the father a looked out and in toe most touching manner cried Faret Velill Farewell adding with a kind of Menc Tilly satisfaction a a Jytte got whole i h i turned away from toe sad scene. If this is the pain thought 1, inflicted by this traffic where family tics atre left unbroken what must be the agony of toe poor victims where these ties Are ruthlessly Sunder. As such reflections were Rushing upon my mind i was joined by toe Friend with whom i had toe dispute the Day fore and who had berated the abolitionists without mercy a there or. A Kim there a a Case for a a yes said i a Case for you too or. What do you think of it a a ooh its too bad its horrid said he a a it a and having Tylius begun he continued to assert his Abhorrence of toe system of slavery in terms that would have been regarded As Vilfry Denim Chatory if forbid in Theeo Gumns of toe Liberator. On con a creation was at length interrupted by our arrival at the City depot. The next morn Liy in pursuance of the Infin object of my visit to the place i set out for w. 11. Win Naomi slum fact Ort. It was a matter o some doubt to me As i went along whether 1 should get in. I had been told that if i wanted to get admittance i must a let on that i wanted buy slaves. This of of Birse i could not do a but made up my mind to be perfectly candid and practice a kind of deception. I inquired for the place and was directed to it by a coloured Man and by tic Way you need never be at a a loss to find that House while there is coloured Man in Washington to inquire of. I was in 7th Street Between Pennsylvania and Maryland Avenue not far from the Centre of the City and within a Short distance of the stars and stripes of the Capitel. A it is a Large but lonely and desolate looking House. 1 rapped at the door which after waiting some time was opened by a Stout Liick set Man dressed in a pea jacket coat and fur Cap with Large whiskers and Stem countenance. Or. W Iiams at Home a a no sir he is in a have you any negroes now on hand a yes sir we have a Luik a to wish to Purchase any i merely wish to Sec your if Yott have no a none at All walk in sir or. Williams is now residing in Natchez i am Here As his agent. We have very few slaves for Sale of our own most that Are Here belong to other Lynile talking he took me in and handed me to a scat. After some further conversation into which he seemed to enter with much free Tom i again observed that i had no a intention of pair chasing but wished to Sec for my own Gra Tiftic Aibin , if he had no objections.�?�. A none at All sir a and with Liat he went to a window on one Side of the room opened foe shutters Ihil a up , and invited a he to look out. A this is Bur to cwt air. Here a continued he while i surveyed an area of about 49 feet Square enclosed partly by the Walls of the out Biti dings and partly by Leigh jail Walls built for the purpose a a Here we allow them to take exercise and the children to As it was very cold the a a pen was pm pay. They were All Down in the cellar the agent said. A i asked to go Down and see them. He accordingly tie Way through a windbag passage out into a temporary enclosure which communicates with the he took out of jigs pocket a key opened fhe lock of a huge Iron cry it is barred Gato which admitted us to the space within Ile Tii ii opened a door which led us into the Here in an apart Merit of about 25 feet Square where about 30 slaves of All Ages sizes and colors. I noticed one Young girl of about twelve years of age who seemed quite White a rid another a Little child of Stout two years old of the same Shade and one of the most Beautiful children i Ever saw. The very Small children were gambling about unconscious of their situation but those of Moro advanced age were the most melancholy looking beings. Fhe Wistful inquiring anxious looks they cast at to pee suming i suppose that i came As a Purchase were hard to Melure. I soon descried the father and his family that i saw Tom away from to Weir former Home the Day before. A where is your master taking you a said the agent to the Man in answer to a question of mine put to him of the same import a to Alabama i believe they Call it a said the Man in tones of the deepest 8adess. His wife sat beside the stove amusing her infant and never once looked up All the time were in. Not feeling at Liberty to ask questions of these actor things i soon turned to go away. He then led me to two other apartments of about the same size one of them not now used the other appropriated As a sleeping apartment to the females. A do All Trio a persons sleep Down in Liat cellar a a yes sir All the males they lie upon the floor each one has got a couple of a but will that room accommodate so Many a a ooh lord yes sir three times As Many last year we had As Many ast30 in these three i could hardly see Tow this was Poast ble without their lying on each other.

You see we can afford to keep them for nine cents apiece cheaper than they can at the a what is your charge a a Twenty five cents a Day apiece for All except children at the breast he then showed me a title at one Side of the enclosure where their meals Are served up it was in the open air with no other Protection than a covering from the raging Stone. In ans wer to toy inquiries he told me Oljey took their meals Ifni Tito open air summer and Winter. A but a said i a a done to they suffer very much from the cold a a to lord no sir they squat Down and est in. Ten minutes. We give Triem plenty of substantial food Heiting Coffee sweetened with molasses and com a How Many meals do you give them in a Day a a a two sir one at nine of Dock and the other at a. A after a Good Many other questions and answers which i have Eitnier forgotten or deem unnecessary to mention we returned to the room in which i was first int Rodn a upon coming into the House and taking seals by ii fire we continued our conversation. But As my Sheet is nearly full i must leave the rein finder of my narrative for another communication. I have too room for comment. None a hot Ever is necessary. The Guill the shame tie Hartles a Ness the hip Veriay of Liis nation will be thought that will naturally crowd themselves upon the minds of you riders. These arc some of the abominations that exist in the District of the National Domain of the american Republic within sight of the Capitol and under the stars and stripes of our National Flag a a the faustian Flag that proudly Wavea in solemn mockery Over a land of that of yours v pcs of the readiness of a the democracy to sacrifice the interests of Northam freemen to the in appealable spirit of slavery a on the other hand we Aro told by the Globe that the whigs Are guilty of favouring the Riglick of petition that the delegation from Massachusetts a whig state Are tainted with anti slavery fanaticism and that tie whig legislature of Verinon an abolition firebrand into Congress. We do not pretend to understand the character of modern democracy better than the Globe its credited and ofe Ciul Organ. The statements of that paper in regard to the treachery of the great body of a die parly to the principles of old Fash toned democracy is we fear too True. But one thing is certain in Ite extreme anxiety to secure the favor of the slave holding South it has overlooked a multitude of important facts tending to show that the principles of emancipation have found a resting place under the banners of modern Deli Unicy.

Tie late sex president Madison it is said made the remark to miss Marti Neau that the whole Bible condemned slavery but the fiery did not preach this nor did the people see it. And judge Nichols in Leto House of representatives of Kentucky speaking of the clergy who Irti Glit engage in the discussion of the slavery question said but a Short time since a when they come to handle the subject it will be As a matter of conscience. If the Laws of conscience will not allow slavery for a lifetime neither will they allow it for a Day.

The resolutions in question received the vote of both parties in tie legislature. The two is to democratic Van Buren conventions of that stale have openly expressed abolition principles. Some of the most Active and influential members of the Van Buren party in the state arc local agents of tic american Aifiti slavery society. How is it in Massachusetts the Massachusetts legislature contained last year More Ilien 200 Van Buren Mem hers of these Only six voted against the a fire Brand resolutions. The Senate even went beyond the House and the Hon. Seth whiter Arsh who headed the Van Buren electoral ticket was toe most eloquent advocate of abolition at its board., r a awas the editor of tie Globe aware that the Van Buren candidate for Congress in Boston at the last Electron was Amasa Walker a Man almost As notorious for his abolitionism As we.

We commend the above fact to the editor of the Globe As evidence that the Northern and Eastern friends of Martin Van Buren Are Nofel prepared to be sold in the Southorn Market and Itiat however powerful May be the machinery of party truth is stronger than All from Zion to Ultra ism.

M. My pm. From Ike Pemba Vivama free Tom democracy and abolition. The principle of democracy As exp loaded by the democratic conventions of Massachi its and Vermont is that of doing unto others As we Rould that others would do unto us of extending the hand of brotherhood to every member of the human family without regard to outward circumstances or cast or Creed or color. This was the democracy inculcated by Thomas Jefferson and g governor Eustis and Elbridge Gerry. But if we May judge by a recent article in the a Hington Globe the democracy of the present Day is the main supporter of the unlimited system of slavery. In a Long and Laboured article the editor endeavours to show that the great a a democratic party his manifested its willingness to go to any length in upholding the a Peculiar institutions of the South and in putting Doton the friends of Freedom and equal Lighte at the North. To Long for Patton s gag Law the veto pledge of the president a the course pursued by the dough faced Legislatures of Pennsylvania new Hamps Trei and new York arc some of the proofs which the Globe add per opined a very acceptable service to slave hold Lenour ced what Uliey by a gift Joiner Cal some of our readers will remember a hat Effort. Were made at our last general conference a to Southern Hercl Hreibi a by denouncing a Era Oderin but As we have before shown these efforts were far from giving satisfaction. The Southern Chris lift advocate of March 23d contains a notice of d. M. Reese a humbugs which we Darc say is anything but flatten la to the ambition of Ite famous aullion. The editor of that paper Rev. W. Capers says a. A it is due to the author of humbugs to say that in tiie course of his essay he argues quite a beyond his prescribed limits of Dtra abolitionism a As indeed he com not fail of doing after he had made the Bible his Standard of truth. Holtti Irto this Standard and keeping ourself to a question of moral and Christian duty we knew abolitionism or Uura abolitionism the older or the younger die More consider Eue or the Mote fanatic alike As it seems therefore that Trio Rev a Ca docs not agree at All with that clause in the Sipline of the Church of which he is a minister which proposes the a extirpation of the evil of lie goes alike against modern and ancient abolitionism and hence it would so iii motto is a slavery now and slavery por Everix hear him again a a in his preliminary remarks our author says a thai we do not include those abortion site who View Ila very As an evil and benevolently desire its he option and Pray for the emancipation of All who Are in Bonds and contribute As much As in the i lies to prepare the Way for its ultimate annihilation is because such do not go beyond the Bible either in their Creed or practice a now if this could be proven to us we feel persuaded that we should awing clean tour authors sort of abolitionists and take rank among the a Ultras a but it cannot. The Bible no where from beginning to end records any such Creed or practice. What fhe Creed and practice of the Bible is to Pray for the emancipation of All who Are in Bonds meaning a Slavet the idiots with the rest it is quite a mistake we believe it is Only at the North that the sentiment prevails to any considerable extent that the Bible is in Yovor of present slavery and also of a tit image emancipation. Indeed who cannot see that if the Bible enjoins Crim citation agy to that duty is of immediate obligation if Ali Zbihle Eon dems slavery it condoms it Nuto it always has condemned it and always will condemn it. This Rio if of will be seen that the joint committee of the legislature to whom were referred the petitions of the people against the congressional gag Law. I ave made a report full of str Natii and spirit and precisely in Accortt Aiice with the wishes of the Pali toners and the Genius of Republican Liberty appended to which Are Quot equally emphatic resolutions. These Hare passed the Senate unanimously of and will doubtless be As cordially adopted by the House and Ali i for Timeir presentation to Congress Liberator resolves on the right of petition.

Resolved that our senators und representatives in Congress in their Earnest and United assertion and defence of the right of petition and Freedom of debate against the attacks and assumptions of unauthorized Power deserve and have the continued and cordial approbation of the people of this Commonwealth. Resolved that his excellency the governor he requested to Forward a copy of these resolves to Reaidi of our senators and representatives main Congress with a request that the same May be Laid be fore tha t body. Against the admission of two Are into the Unwe which was agreed to yeas 40, nays 38. Some other amendments having been adopted or. Stevens Roveil that the House go into committee of the whole for the purpose of separating the part relative to Texas from the rest of the Hill which was Agre Eil to. After the separation had been made or. Garretson offered As an amendment instructions to support the indexer Kiciuk Treasury or. Johnston then moved that the whole subject be indefinitely postponed which was agreed to years 41, nays 3�. On this subject with three or four exceptions tic members voted by party the Van Buren men going for the admission of Texas. Hayti and feb nce France has at last removed the Only objection which our govt Ramont has dared to urge against recognizing the Independence of our neighbouring Republic of Hayti. Fhe Union one of tiie newspapers published at port an Prince sch 15� 1838, contains two treaties concluded Between the Baron Las cases and Baudin the French plenipotentiaries and those of the a laotian Republic. By the first France unconditionally Yacknow judges the Freedom sovereignty and Independence of the Republic of Hayti. By the second it is agreed that the balance of the indemnity 60, 000,000 f., or about i 1,250,000,1 shall be paid in Twenty annual instalments gradually increasing from 1,500,000 francs to 3,000,000 francs. Whether this indemnity which Justice no scr required of Hayti shall Ever be completely paid or not she is now by tiie recognition of the Mother country a free Sovereign and Independent heretofore France has obstinately refused to re Cognize the sovereignty of her former Colony though for the Sake of extorting Money after the bayonets of Bonaparte had fail Charles eth of Fere to recognize a the Independence of the government in consideration of an indemnity to tic heirs and survivors of the old colonists of 150,000,000 francs to be paid in five equal annual instalments commencing with the year 1825. Boyer had the weakness to Swallow the Hook but the Good sense of the heft Ian people made the measure so unpopular that As is Only on Diwha Vincnt 30,000,000 francs has been paid up to the Date of the recent treaty. France now places Hayti on the same footing As other nations and relinquishes on Hal of her remaining claim for indemnity. In this state of the Case what Shadow of excuse remains to our government for delaying any longer to establish the same International relations with Hayti As us and other nations with which we have far less commercial Intercourse ? will not those who have a due respect for Justice Between men to say nothing of our commercial interests or our National character see that this subject is immediately urged upon the attention of the president and Senate of the United states a emancipator a costly speech six Hundred dollars per annul. Brier not to adv it Ovate Lnch late in Mamieh no cats a few Days since a Bill relating to the office of attorney general passed the Senate of this state thc3il Section of which fixed his salary at $1809�? being an increase of $600. It was twice read in tic House and upon the question of the third Reading or. Sisson of fall River moved to Amend the Bill by striking out the 3d Section in support of which motion he contended that any officer of tiie government either by himself or his friends making application for an increase of salary should come wich clean hands. He commented with just severity upon the speech of that officer at the Faneuil Hall meeting in relation to the Alton tragedy As tend ii to or ate disturbance and riot while he we bound by he is oath of office to prevent All violation of Law that he ought to have been the last Man in the Cor Araon wealth to pursue a course of conduct which tended directly tit subvert All order that if any member of the House doubted that such was the tem Leney of. His conduct he could satisfy him by Reading from the speech As reported by or Austin. Or. Sisson also alluded to his abusive remarks against or. Charming at said meeting see amp a messes. Gray and Guirgis the most influential of the Boston members advocated the increase of salary a but notwithstanding this and its passage through the Senate or. Sissons motion prevailed by three to Onet a so this great buttress of shivery May think himself for this annual loss of $600, which May let the 80uth speak. The Alabama journal. This paper. Doc. 27, has the following paragraph with regard to the Alton massacre in relation to the Alton affair which we Public slide some numbers since we have for Ebonie huh Ergo to comment. It has taken the course we had expected and has become the subject of numerous meetings among the abolitionists. The killing of Dishop by the abortionists is resolved to be justifiable homicide whilst that of Iron Joy is likewise by Resolution pronounced malignant cold blooded murder. We have observed with Tion the comments in Southern papers upon this of air. They attach too much blame to those who in the absence of statute Law to afford immediate Relief against the once diaries who would destroy their property and their lives called into Reques Tion the first Law of nature self a defence. Do the abolitionists expect the slave Holder will wait the tardy operations of the Law when the criminal incendiary under the Law backed As he is by the wealth and influence of a Large Section of our countryman give Security to answer to the the ends of Law and in the mean time May prosecute his infernal machinations in the very face and bosom of the slaveholder until his property is destroyed and the throats of his wife and fit Loren Cut before his face. It is unreasonable to suppose any Community so enduring or so deaf to their own rights and interests. Law or no Law the Southern people will never permit the establishment among them of a Public press Fco a the inciting of insurrection and Relt Ellion among their slaves and where the operation of the Law is tardy they will take the remedy into their Owr hands. And it is to the knowledge of this fact abroad that we owe our present Security. If there were no remedy for these evils save an Appeal to courts of Justice Friere would scarcely be a Volage South of the Potomac but there would be planted an abolition news press and the utter destruction of the lives and property of our people would he consummated before a court of Justice under the forms and delays of Law a Ould redress their fhe execution of mob Law is always attended with danger to the innocent and As a general practice wrong but the end sometimes justifies the Means and though the taking of the life of a fellow being is a matter which every honorable and Brave Man should shudder at and an event under All e i cum stances to he regretted yet that Man or Community who would scruple to take life when necessity or the Law of self defence authorizes it so a a condemns the noblest gift of heaven Petit Luis to tree Ammri the find psf fully arrived when oar in Iees Fri Bali Susia engage in cd curating Peci tiros to the Annat conf Wace for the purpose of obtaining Rign totes.

Some of the conferences will sit in a few watchman a a the slaves Are Haffy. A few years ago mrs. B. Was travelling from Alaba aia to Kentucky. If Len Miles from Bowling Green towards Nashville she stopped to refresh the horses. Just before this she had met in the Road a Effie of slaves gang South. The slaver himself bad Suqi Ped at the Bouse where so stopped. He was engaged in bargaining with the landlord for a negro woman and her infant to add to is gang. The woman had four children. She appeared greatly do treated. Mrs. B. Quot appealed to the companion of the master and spoke of the hardship of separating the Mother from three of her children. To Seei Riei touched fat the moment the tean started in Bis eyes. His wife remarked to the slave Wotan a i told Yon if you did no to do better How it would be a but you Wouida it mind the slaver himself was unmoved. The Slavo was ordered forthwith to get Lendy. She was brought to the door where the slaver had a horse ready for her. 8he was put on it with her infant her other Tiree children were screaming in agony at the departure of the bios in hearted weeping Mother. The he awed a it is not known where he was.
