Look at4he situ-ition of that country. In the first place there is Texas; which has been récogoized by the American government, and it was a porion of land be-lOTging to the Mexican states, which was filched from them by a set of land pirates. They committed, and were encouraged in the iobbery, because the Mexicans had totally aboltsiied slavery. Alihoufh separated by wilds from the Ü- States, it teas manifest that the negroes, in aeareh of free* dom, would be able to find a track ihroogh the oth-fetwM» pathless deitert, and that the MsxiCaiti Would receive the refugeee.

(Hear.) Mr. Tm then directed the atsention ef the audience to the horrors of the slave-tiade, as at preseni carried on. It might not be known to all that the Western part of Africa was at this hour robbed daily, for the purpose of slavery, of 1660 of her chfldren. Mr, Buxton, who had devoted the last 6 Qf 12 months to an investigation into the state of Ibffwlave trade, had ascertained tliat 356,606 of the n of Africa were slaughtered on the soil, most virulent opponent (Dr. Mac Bpff.), (Hear.) If any man iivuig seven years ago had told him that such an event would take place, he would have deemed it the height of cfti»*dit|. (Hear, hear.) But such waa the force of pubfet>|i4ii|pn. that those who a few yean 1^0 were Aeir bitteif«> earbf theHri|ish Legislature—and at List, by dint eet enemies, were now coming forward to take their share in the praise of the final accomplishment of the work. Let diem be received even at the eleventh hour, aud, late as they had come advance that giorious work, he trusted their sacrifice, even at the eleventh hour, would be received'by Him who was all merciful, in expiation of their past crimes. Reference had been made to the state of slayery existing in the different colonies and dominions of the Crown of Great Britain. He could not but e:lpiress a regirentllt there was an exception in the abolition of slaver in their East India possessions. He understoo J: to effect the extinction of slavery in that quarter, (C heere.) Hitherto rt had proceeded as might have been expected—it had stood still altogether. ^(A laugh.) Unless it was done by the power of Parliament called into action by the feelings of the British people, they would remain for ever and aye ia their present degraded condition. (Hear, hear.) It was the duty, then, of those who represented the people in Farlitunent to bring before *iAthat great ánd crying grievance. With the bles-sing qf God, it was his intention in the ensuing session to bring the sufc^t «Í East Ipdian slavery before the House, and thus, if possible, relieve the crown of Great Britain from the foul blot of having one man in those dominions in a state of sla-vsTy. (Great cheming.) A commencement had been lately made—-they had all heard of the transportation of the Hill Coolies, and they had heard something,'perhaps, of the Government not en-eouraging,, but giving, a qui^ and tacit, and rather active assislance to the exportation of’those unfortunate individuals from the Ea£t Indies to the different settlements of the Mauritius and Guiana. He had Ihe aatisfactíon of informing them that Lord Glenetg in the Monte of Lords, had stated that exportation to be an end. (Great cheering.) The order waa rescinded—the eon tract was broken up—4be system was repudiated, to remaiii simply hereafter a monument of their folly. Hurrah I he would say for the force of public opiu-ion. (jCbepqi.) Hurrah! he would say «gain for the power of truth. (Renewed cheers.) It was nol in the pqUrer of man to pffer any effectual resistance to the progress of their cause. Let ibem be assured that if it was founded in justice, it must ulttmately triumph. Let them use but the means wMcIi Providence had put into their hands of full, free, and pubEc discussion, aud they might depend on it that success would be the result. One word before hfe sat dowW, dilth respect to the address of the American President:—A more unfee-ling addréss, or one more disgraceful to men en-joymg the freedom of liberty themselves, he never h^ peniaadi What, he would ask, wss that roan who elaimed liberty for himself, and denied it to otkefs, drhat was Jit bnt a base hypocrite ? (CbsBring.) What term in the Englwh langoagé could be tee severe for him ? Their jealousy was arouftd Q|ion the subject, for soBit fow years ago ha was in company with the American Ambassador, and he ntver failed to speak of slavery wfien he met an American, and lie prayed them to mark the coward feelings of guilt. He learned afterwards that his observations on jlavery, and their private eouersatioii at (able, bad been transmitted to every |f^rican Minister abroad. It ehowed tbréi for ten kind hearing they had given Ifiim.— His principal motive ia coming there was to pay his humble testimony to the undaunted courage— the determined resolution—^the powerful and nn-shalten principles of his honoured and excellent friend Joseph Siurge, which not merely led him to encounter the d’lfficulties, and forego the comforts of his own home, by going to the West Indies, but to do much more in persevering, unmoved and unshaken, against the cold feeling of the House pf Commons—in. urging his'suit when his representations fell without effect on the unwilling ir1nfjlre"cise of East India slavery before thi House next session.

(Hear, hear.) How delighted have ( been at the Language of our eloqueal aud honored friend this evening! America, through her thousand villages and towns—America, along her multitudinous streams, and amid the roar of her foOusand waters, wül hear foe echo of his voice. She wilt bear that one of the most eloquent living orators of the British Parliament, one of the ikost suecessful of profossional men, and one of the most highly-gifted and impartkf of our ecclsiastical judges, has passed sentence of eternal infrmy upon hen (Much cheering.) Oh yes, they are infe-mous—it was a judge who pronounoed that sentence, but I want the verdict of a jury upon the samequesrioo. Ai many of you as are of opinion foat they are tnfamousi say aye. (A loud shout of "aye** buret from the whole assembly.) Aye!— they are infameus—infamons skveholding America. I believe their very ambayBsador here is a alave breeder; one of those beings who reared up slaves for the purpose of traffic. I» it possible that A-merica should send here a rtasi whA traffics in blood, and who k a disgrace lo hnman itature? I hope thfe assertion is untrue, but it is right to speak out. I was going into foe House of Commons thi other evening, when a tall, gendemanly looking man, yellow and lank, addressed me. (A laigh.) Sir, I am a stranger, and I wish to sec the House of Commons. I replied, I will do what I can to atcommofoite a stranger. You are an American! Yes, from Alabama, And a slave owner, I presume? Yes. Then 1 will have nothing to do with yon. (Roars of laughter.) This is what we should all do. Universal Europe should proclaim that any mun who is the holder of slaves is degra* dcd in moral characteV, and not fit to associate with honfest wlfn. Who would associate with a pidkpofeket, a convicted thief, or a murderer?— You would not; and what is aslave owner? Why, picking pockets rises to the dignity of felony, the convicted thief, or foe murderer, are men of mitigated crimes compared with those who make life impnao; fined £2m* was puqts tion, so that a his child to reafo^4® was one year’s foe Bi-fiUie kshes and" was liable "to" be 'tCfdBBehaakye to write, ti^ and finer at t ^ flogged iqsH^biog panishmenl ^ iQfmld my thi Mm mrmtcx^ SbHf». alter    How.

What do we want I That into slavery we should throw the American ingredient, and make it impossible that these raOnsters^hould be tolerated in any European States. Shall I be told that their Legislature is open to petitions and addresses f Mark the fact—some petitions .were presented at the late Congress against slavery, but they enacted a rule thjt no man should be allotyed to sp«k when presenting a petition for the emancipating foe negroes, and they were placed upon foe table in silence and unread ! (Cries of shame, shame.) The rale was as foolish as it was cruel, for there are sixty anti-slavery, men in Congress who won't present periridhs to have them passed in silence,%ut petition to have the rule rofcinded, and they wiU then be able to argue on the rescifld-ing of that rale, quite as Widl as if foe rale Was never made; at least if they are agitators of my description, they wiU soon find foat out. I came here for two purposes, one to rouse your indignation against America, and if it is said foat the Americans learned this* traffic, from England, let fofem now follow her example. She has set a glorious example, and believe me, the West^ Indies cannot contain eight hundred thousand free blacks, and America keep twice that number in slavery. The hour is coming, when America will regret her conduct in tears of blood. One duly remains to us, and that is loodly to proclaim our hatred and execration of foal pretended friend of freedom, who has given such horrible proofr of her ifieonsistency and brutality. My next pwrpooe was to rejoice with a holy joy, at what has been effected in our own colonies. **This is the day the Lord hafomada, let us rejoice and be glad.** On this day the negro will rejoice, for he no longer shudders when he sees his children pass by—he no longer feels that horrible creeping of the flesh when he sees them growing up into manhood and strength from the conviction foat they must either endure foe lash As himself, or be sold to some distant planter away from his father and his family. The mother no longer weeps when she hugs her youngling to her breast, but rejoiccii that it is no longer a slave, but a creature delightfbl in her Ihfbncy, and promising to be her protector in her old age.
