Depend upon it we Shah one Day find to our utter iii that our foolish Dodona a Iid prejudices Are lighter Tolian air when placed in opposition to the principles of immutable Justice in the True balance of the Sanctuary b. We will then see Liat it is the height of Absurdity and presumption to pro pose to our eolo red Brethren. To leave the land of Iligir nativity into which thur fore fathers were felonious by imported by the avarice and cupidity of Hursas the Condi Don Lipo ii which we will cease to oppress them. If we choose to regard their presence As disagreeable that will not be an excuse for trampling alien Niider our feet in order to extort their consent to banishment.

On the subject of political action there is too Little said and thought. I regard it As the most powerful moral lever in the bands of the people. Nothing like it i v is agitation in agitation Len the tri umps.

It seems to me their More direct business to agree upon great path if 1 is oif a action to be carried out in the in oath and breadth of the land. Under the Impf Effion that Tler opinion embraced in Saad reel Union is Imp Nutant i shall offer a few grief in Zuppert of it and As i am a a a firm believer in.

A it is said to h been the secret of tie Success of Napoleon that he directed All the energies o his actions to a single Point which if lost to the enemy Seca red their defeat at every other. Such a Point there is in our Case. To Prate it Tooey it seems Stra Inge to that or. A other teamed Utterm Roll in settling the duty of the governor in returning aug lives from Justice. The Constitution says a a a person charged in any state with treason felony or of her , we shall be from Jim meet and. Be found in another state shall on demand of the executive dec. Be delivered up. The word crime Here is explained by the enumeration of a part of those known to the world As crime and Eviden Fly never a it elided to made such the Sainte Laws of a state. They might in that Casio make an innocent traveller amenable for an act not qty innocent in itself Siut praiseworthy witness the Law of Georgia by Ali iii w and Butler Werc imprisoned in the Penitentiary of Georgia even after the supreme oort of the a s. Had derided against the legality not to Quot s a a criminality of the Law and then make the governor of his own state accessory to such a wicked act. It seems to me that the weakest capacity is sufficient to see the Absurdity of such a position. Again it is contend ded that our governor is bound by of Congress this i to be Ali of absurd. Cons s Cali make not Laws to com Pei. Our state officers to do an official act they , Bur they Are under no obligation besides 1 doubt if co ingress has airy Power in the Case.

It was not the intention of the society to have the a times of All go before t fic Public until our Secretary had by Cor Respondence secured the acceptance of those who were resell at the convention. I Hope those vice presidents whose names were thus published without Thoi consent will Mireider this a sufficient apology. A. For the Rewoli Tilou of the Indiana congregational Assoc Ailon on the Schlect of slavery the quest to ii w hat is the duty of the a of Fri can churches in relation to the subject of slavery being before the n for discussion it was resolved that it is the deliberate opinion of this association that slav Bolding involves a Combina Tion.

For the . Abolition in Gauga co. A Friend writing from Beauga co. Says a but Little interest is manifested in the abolition cause by the greater portion of the society yet a few Seera to feel its importance and Are warm friends of the oppressed. The society but two publications Viz the Pilaut Brodist and tone copy of each and these Are read Only by few while there Are More papers of other descriptions taken in town than in any other country town in the Vicinity. �?o1 have thought that it Only needed the Plain facts set impartially fairly and continually before the mild to enlist the feelings and sync patties of every bosom that was not entirely lost to All sense of right jul Slot a inhere is no m an or Pomatti blessed with co Motl capacities that Wal set themselves candidly and honestly to examine the subject but will soon become a thorough abolitionist the reason Why so Many Are found opposing this Chr Isi like Enterprise is because Diey do n of cd at Nitie Der s4iieet, ww4 Torii to that it comes in Cun Tacl with their self interest in some Way or other the slaveholder thinks that it is for Ais interest to Lipold his fellow men in bondage the recent facts hav c pro v de beyond controversy that it is Nota so. The haughty proud lord Libigs of the Earth know that Uliey must sink in the same proportion that die lower classes of s o Cie to Are raised and by Light and knowledge hence the unwearied efforts of colonization Tbs to keep the poor Black Man ill the lowest Depths of degradation. Those w to have connections at the South or Are Cou be cts in Trade wit i the southerners must be on the Side with the slaveholder As a matter of course. I have heard. of a ii Orch , that a should the slaves be liberated at the South they would come directly to the North and we should be overrun i Ali them and / Don twist Ike Miu Black scoundrels about me / had rather they mud stay where they Are now this is tie spirit of Christ is it to Pul ones own selfish feelings in Competition with the present and eternal welfare of Baillio us of human being a hear o Earth and five car o a a a much Asye did it not into tie least of these Brethren be did it not unto me a says the Saviour.
