Cowles and his associates Oberlin highly appreciate the plan oud will do All in their Power to further it.

A the authorities in lower Canada seem disposed to turn that province into a Siberia and to extend there the russian Law regulating the Liberty the press. We have seen a letter from the postmaster at Montreal returning the Ester Pytte a French paper in this City with this reason a that they Are a at awed to he Eirc ulried tar this Corx it a a a new York paper. No need going to Siberia for an illustration such despotism. We can be furnished at Home. What excites so much indignation when done in Montreal is in fact the custom in a Large portion this Union. How contemptible is the conduct some our editors. If they would look at Home they would find enough evil to rebuke. Iie3r How they exclaim against the government Canada because it will not permit the circulation certain periodicals but who them has yet noted a Ven As a piece intelligence Tira burning Breckinridge a Magazine in Petersburg Virginia there is no such thing As Liberty the press in one half this country and yet we dare to Carp at the restrictions imposed . It by the canadians Independent Jiow the inevitable effect and exclusion a Large portion ministers and members from ecclesiastical rights account color condition is to create a distinct and an Independent sovereignty White sovereigns and Black subjects. Suppose people color should constitute one half the Church in regard to them the Whites would be a distinct and an. Irresponsible sovereignty governing them just according to their own Good pleasure Irre spectre by the rights the governed. In View All these facts it is easy to explain How the m. P. Church has come to be regarded As indifferent hostile to the interests the coloured people. A it will be Well for this Church at its approaching general conference to take such ground in relation to slavery As shall prove that its loud professions attachment to Liberty and Equality Are entitled to sonic credit and respect. A Decatur anti slavery society have challenged their enemies through the medium the political examiner to discuss the differences opinion Between them and that their opponents May have a fair Chance have published their preamble and Constitution. This is fair and courteous we. Hope their Manly Challenge will be accepted with the same spirit in which it is Given. The society says truly that a tic Man. Or set men who might succeed in showing that the principles Field by abolitionists Are erroneous would doubtless. Greatly increase the Public happiness for those principles Are widely spread and. Rapidly gaining ground. Bat god forbid that i should seek my ease while suffering humanity Calk and the a a a pressed cry for help. Bui in.

At split hand ky., april 11th, Clark a barkeeper attempted at the request a Landlady to remove . Brown an old resident who was under the influence liquor. Brown Drew a pistol and shot c.

Wondrue while ascending the Arkansas River in a Canoe was shot from the Banks and killed instantly. About the same time in Arkansas Augustus l.

His breast and lie died in a few minutes . Loftin near Murf Reesburg tenn., not Long since in a desperate encounter with a run away negro whom we presume he attempted to arrest Suc Meti Odist protestant Church. We re mar lied in our last number the proportion coloured persons belonging to the methodist protestant Chuck in Maryland. There is a reason for this. A general impression prevails among persons color that this Church is unfriendly to their interests and we cannot blame them for it. As a Church it has never yet said one word against the principle system slavery. In the publication John and Charles Wes Leys general rules which Are bound up in one volume with its elementary principles Constitution discipline and forms the Rule relating to slavery is entirely omitted. It was omitted in deference to slave holders. Its seventh elementary principle declares that a foe Church has a right to form and enforce such rules and regulations Only As Are in accordance with the holy scriptures the Southern sections the Church a form and enforce Regela Lions a by which persons color Bond and free Are excluded from All participation in the government the i Turli from the rights suffrage and eligibility to office. Is this in accordance with the holy scriptures in the Church emphatically the Golden Rule the Law Christian Equality ought to be strictly observed. Rights should be secured equally to All the members without respect to condition color. Any regulation excluding slaves free coloured people from privileges and rights enjoyed by the rest the member cannot be otherwise than unjust and injurious. It tends to wound their feelings degrade them in their own estimation perpetuate their degradation in Public in ton and give countenance to a system that strips them All rights. Southern sections a Church have never yet been Hallett Quot to account in any Way rebuked for the violation this elementary principle. Its eighth elementary principle declares that whatever Power May be necessary to the formation rules and regulations is inherent in a ministers and members the Church but so much that Power May be delegated from time to time upon a plan representation As they May judge necessary and there is no exception Here a minister Sand members a not apart but the whole without any distinction condition Are embraced. And Why should the principle be restricted if it be True let it be carried out to its legitimate consequences. Its unbroken integrity its Universal applicability Are precisely those attributes which Confer it any i in. Is such a Power inac Mif in the ministers Ami members a Church then it is i Hereit in All Black As Well As while. Have tile ministers and members the right to Delegate such Power a then All have it Nane Black As Well As to Hite. If then the Constitution provide solemn guaranties for this right in a Case White members ought it not to Grant the same guaranties to coloured Mem bars ? surely a principle favouritism should not be allowed to nullify inherent rights. None ought to receive Protection from which others Are excluded. Justice is even handed. God has conferred these rights All if they be inherent so that Man if he would guaranty them in any ease should guaranty them in All cases. But what is the fact in this professedly Republican Church a the Constitution article 12, secures to while men otherwise qualified the right to vote Delegate Power but not to coloured Mes. In the same Way it secures eligibility to , to White men but not to their coloured Brethren. Here is a principle discrimination introduced plainly repugnant to the elementary principle just quoted and Titiro diced too for the Sake accommodating the slave Holder the annual conferences in the slave states some them have gone further a ther have absolutely violated this essential principie., a a a Power and a a rights declared to be inherent in the ministers and members a Etui Reh have without scruple utterly taken away from the coloured ministers and Mem bars Bond and free. It May be said that the Constitution confers exclusive Power . A annual conferences to make such terms suffrage and government for persons color As they May deem proper. Whether this Power be without restriction not an elementary principle is violated. One two things then is certain a either a annual conferences Are the transgressors the Constitution itself is a transgressor containing a provision intended to limit an elementary principle announced with studied form and solemnity and without any restriction. If a annual conferences be in fault let proper action be had against them if the Constitution be to blame expose and Amend it. Its eleventh elementary principle declares that the Church has no right to a create any distinct prejudice. Our prejudices Are Almos always founded in. Nature. They arise from a perverted action natural principles the action not infrequently the most excellent principles our the against the jew which daring the Middle Ages subjected him to so Many intolerable abuses throughout Christendom took its Rise in an. Abhorrence the wickedness exhibited in putting to death the son god. By a natural process the deep indignation Felt at the recital this deed was transferred to a perpetrators it but by a most cruel perversion the infamy a few was spread Over a whole race and the sins the fathers visited upon their posterity. Liat was at first a righteous indignation became finally a wicked and most unnatural antipathy an antipathy which led to the infliction injuries utterly forbidden by the precepts him whose violent death was assigned As a reason for cherishing so unholy a feeling. Thus it is that prejudice under an insidious Guise corrupts the Best sentiments the heart. It May startle Many our readers to be told that prejudice against the Man color has grown out some the Best principles our nature. Why is it that so Genera an antipathy is cherished against the coloured Man is it because he is Black Brown that his hair is not so straight As that the White Man ridiculous our prejudices lie deeper than tills they grow out constitutional principles. To Tere is no such thing As prejudice against color it is against condition. We hate slavery a vice ignorance and deep abasement it entails upon its victims. We scorn a passive submission under so grievous a Yoke. This is a ii right. Such feelings become freemen. But Mark what follows. Our degenerate natures Are always erring either by excess perversion. Most cruelly most absurdly the dislike we cherish for the consequences slavery is extended to its victims. This is prejudice. We abhor the poor sufferers for a degradation character and condition not voluntary but a criminal work ers. The train perverted associations once established it becomes More and More unreasonable. Not Content with abhor ring a slaves for air misfortunes we extend our antipathies to All connected with them by a common origin the ties relationship whether slaves not hence a prejudice against a free coloured Man. The prejudice however in their Case is invigorated and kept up by our habit associating ignorance vice and degradation with this much abused people. So then however praiseworthy the original feelings the perversion which constitutes prejudice we see aat the prejudice itself is one the most unreasonable and brutal things in. The world a it is nothing less than hating men for injuries inflicted them by ourselves and others. In the name reason and religion How can reasonable and Christian men. Arty longer suffer this insensate feeling to make them indifferent to the wrongs heaped upon their coloured Brethren Why will they not exert themselves to remove the disabilities under which they Labory to extend to them the benefits the common school system to throw around their persons and Quot property a Ordinary safeguards Law and to secure to them in the daily walks life kind and courteous treatment must their Charity be always away from Home cannot their sympathies be enlisted in behalf a Good work this Side a Atlantic As Well As in Africa must philanthropy take a voyage across the seas before it can reach Forth a hand to Succour the perishing a tis distance lends enchantment to a deed. But a better Days Are coming a thanks to a Wise and merciful Providence a time is hastening Oai when the pure spirit Christian philanthropy shall take a place those Low and selfish feel Ings which distort human nature and Trammel its kindest affections. Hereafter our mighty prejudices against the coloured race will be regarded with the same kind sentiments As those now awakened at the recollection the popular anti Paay which once proscribed the jew As an unclean thing and distinguished him by infamous Marks. The commercial bulletin new Gideons states aat private letters had been received in that City contain ing in Tell i. Gen be the subsequent the Resolution. This Rumor May to True false. If True it would indicate great Folly in the people the free states to relax air vigilance. The texans May think Quot Best to pout a Little put a show Independence and dignity they May be aware that the annexation business shall proceed just As Well whether they continue withdraw their petition. At All events the editor in the free states who would cry peace because Texas has concluded she wont beg any longer for admission into our Union shows no Small share simplicity. American slave holders have conquered this territory from Mexico Foi years it has been air Darling project to have it incorporated with our possessions ambition and a regard to the stability their system slavery impel them to consider Success in this movement As All it port ant it �3 not probable therefore that ave will suffer their tools in Texas to prove traitorous to air wishes.
