Dear Ltd beloved Brethren s it is generally known although not Publ ahead in the official Pipier of the methodist protestant Church that during the fete session of our general conference at Pitta Burgh the Subj eel of slavery under its moral aspects was under Dis Answon for Severd Days. That body at length concluded to a Liose of the question temporarily by the adoption of a Rea lotion leaving it with the annual conferences and primary Aast myties of the Pecile. For consideration in View of future anti ii upon it by the general conference. Inferring from this Resolution the duty of said conferences to bestow some to mention on the important subject alluded to and to express of rsm my to amp a Ofay Anfe itts conference after Doe deliberation agreed with great unanimity of the resolutions Hereunto appended. A they would beg leave respectfully to Call your attention to triese resolutions. Until within a few years slavery was in appearance universally admitted in this country to be a great moral evil it was thought that Southern christians though involved in this evil sincerely lamented it and were ready to Avail themselves of All proper Means for its removal. For the last few years however indications of a different state of things have been furnished. It is now Welt known that the principal denominations of pro Feming christians at the South Are involved to a great extent in the practice and support of slavery. We shall select Only a portion of the vast mass to evidence on the Point and shall present it to your notice Wahidi the general Assembly the Highiet ecclesiastical tri Bunal in the Church have nothing to do. The general conference of the Muko Eusi Misc Pai Church ill 1836, passed resolutions condemnatory of abolitionism but refused to say any thing against to artery although the members of that body from the South were Geni really slave holders.

Oar Brethren in the South both minister and members Are we presume generally slave holders. Slavery then pervades nearly a whole Mase of prof a sing christians in eleven states of the Union. It has been declared not to be a moral evil it has been vindicated As right again and again by associations presbyteries conferences and not a single protest we believe has been entered against these sentiments by any Porth of tha denominations alluded toil is May except the Able report of the Synod of Kentucky on this subject a few years to. Dearly beloved Brethren these me facts. We have adduced them not to attach odium to any of our to Smurda nominations or to piece ourselves in the attitude of tiie accusers of our Brethren but amply to show How deeply the eur eyes of Christ Are implicated in this matter. If slavery be a great moral evil the feta to which we have directed your attention demonstrate that it is the duty of that Church which would be innocent of upholding it to Bear open and unequivocal testimony against it and to Taka efficient Mai sores for its immediate purification.

Whose heart does not lift itself with gladness whose soul does not sympathize with the eight Hundred thousand souls which Are this Day filled with rejoicing that they have been released from the Thra Dom of another s will and no longer animate slaves but free men. If the British Antilles Harbor a heart so basely selfish a soul so dead to virtuous emotions so hardened by unholy communion with avarice if our Atmos Phefe is polluted with the breath of a wretch to linked to slavery so wedded to crime m lost to virtue let his unhappy presence be no Check to our happiness let Liim for this Day at least flee the society of men and Bury his curse marred head in the Solitude of Cave or Gully where Only obscene reptiles and spirits As unhappy As himself May haunt a a whether the measure of British policy this Day consummated will have any effect and what on the councils of other slave holding states is a question which we May not now discuss. The authorities in the foreign colonies will find their task no easy one to maintain slavery in so near neighbourhood with Freedom and Liberty preaching Republican America hitherto. Kept in countenance and encouraged by the example of free Britain will now have no worthy companion in her political wickedness and must relinquish it or be contented to have her inconsistent pretensions made the subject of just derision to the whole from the Liberty of the same Date.

Dearly beloved Brethren a will you not join us in Teferi fling Aga info the Fen of Fea very ? Jna Clarks d. C. Carson. Next we Aie fur owned with interesting Intel gence in the new Haven daily Herald of a still later Date. Extract of a Kate from a gentleman connected wok a mercantile Home to this i a to a Friend dated Bab Baboo aug. 3, 183s. Yesterdays Sun Rose Upen eight Hundred thousand freemen on whom and their ancestors the Ladge of slavery had rested for two Hundred years. To was a solemn delightful most memorable Day. Look upon it As a matter of exceeding thankfulness that 1 have been permitted to be a witness to it and to be Able to speak from experience and rom observation of the happiness to which that Day has Given birth. The Day had previously been set apart by proclamation of the governor As a Day of devout thanksgiving and Praise to almighty god for the Happy termination of the thanksgiving and Praise were most truly sincere Heartfelt and general. It was an a Mancina for the a 8ugges1ion, to the abolitionists of Clinton and Highland cos of i have Beard of a proc ser of religion who wishing to be interested in a Puree making of for a Horae race took his name off the paper of the Church to which he belonged for the purpose of doing it without subjecting himself to discipline. At a big meeting which soon Foi wed he joined again on trial now i would suggest to abortionists who intend to vote for George Cotlin in this District to represent them in the next legislature of this state to pursue a Lemist course. In the last Assembly is chair than of the committee on the Judic Fefer he reported Aga aet giving fugitive fesses the right of trial to jury against at Towms coloured persons to testify in s court of Justice and against the so Litko of slavery in the District of cd Dambis. Abol Dionista in these counties petitioned for those object Itofe year and probably will do to again. For them to Aid in sending a Man to Columbus who w ill oppose Tufer petitions appears to me not Lees absurd than for a professor of religion to be Coa armed in horse racing. I therefore Sugse of to them tied they take d their names As members of the anti slavery Sci Tiee and Fey aside Tufer Abonit Montem till the election a Over. Itiat they can join again if they Piasse. They will thus reve themselves from the consistency of which i fear there is pros to that Many of than fill be guilty. And other abolitionist whose con Bencea like Mina Are not sufficiently elastic to be drawn out to support one wham they do not re Tion not merely of the slave but of the proprietor. It was Felt As such openly acknowledged and rejoiced in As such. Never have i witnessed More apparently unfeigned expressions of satisfaction than were made on that Day by the former owners of slaves at the Load of which they had been relieved. I do not wish to be nude stodd As asserting that n�viou8 to the working of emancipation the slave Leo Prietos wished the abolition of slavery far ram it. But having though unwillingly been made witnesses of the operations of fre of and tasted of the previously unknown satisfaction of employing voluntary and contented because ree labourers their minds became enlightened softened changed and from being the determined opposes they became themselves the a a Thors of Complete emancipation. I know not in what terms to describe to you the emotions excited by passing through the streets of this populous town on that memorable morning. There was a stillness and solemnity that might be Felt. It was caused Byno display of Force for none was to be seen. Here and there a policeman ing his usual rounds but not a Soldier not the slightest warlike preparation of any kind to strike tha Eye or Over Awe the spirit of disorder. The spirit that seemed to fill the entire population was eminently the spirit of peace Good will thanks illness and of Joy too deep too solemn to allow of any loud or noisy demonstration of it of course All stores shops and offices of every kind were closed. So also were All places of amusement. No found of revelry no evidences of nightly it excess were to be heard or seen. I do not say Tob much when i assert that the reign of order peace and sobriety was Complete. To give eclat to an event of such importance the governor had ordered one company of militia to attend with him the Cathedral. It is an in Raenise building and was crowded in every part o Ite spacious area galleries and aisles with a most attentive assemblage of people of All Coots and conditions i several clergymen officiated arid one of them at the opening of the services read most appropriately the 68th chapter of Isaiah. Imagine for a moment the effect in such an audience on such an occasion where were Many hundreds of emancipated slaves of words like these a a if not this the fast that i have chosen to Loose the Bonds of wickedness to undo the heavy burdens and to let the oppressed go free and that be break every Yoke a the Sermon by the Bishop was As might have been expected on such an occasion interesting and impressive. spoke with great effect of the unexpected Progress of Freedom from Island to Island from Colony to Colony until with a soil tary exception upon that Day the stain of slavery was obliterated forever from every British misses Sion. Few Rita of a duration the gradual re formation of Morats and the increasing thirst for rid pious instruction were All dwelt upon with great Force and the glory of All ascribed As was most fit to the great giver of every Good and per feet gift. It was an occasion Rich with Happy emotions and Long to be remembered As a Bright and Beautiful spot in the pathway of our Carti ily pilgrimage. The close of the Day was not less auspicious than its commencement. In company with mrs. H., i drove through several of the principal streets and thence through the most Public thoroughfare into the Mounir and no where could aught be seen to mar the decent and truly impressive solemnity of the Day. There were no dances no merry making of any sort not a solitary drunkard not a a fired nor even was a shout heard to Welcome in the new born Liberty. The Only groups we taw were going to or returning from the different chapels and churches except in a few instances where families might he seen Reading or singing by tons at their own Dwe Liin. And now sir having arrived at the Long looked for consummation of All the labors and prayers of the friends of the slave for so Many years As i East my Eye around this land of Liberty How Many thoughts crowd my mind i ask myself is it indeed finished and arc thera none to lament the downfall of time honoured hoary headed slavery where Are the mourners where Are the prognosticators of ruin desolation and woe whore Are the riots and disorders the moods bed and the burnings the prophets and their prophecies Are alike empty vain and unfounded and Are alike buried in oblivion. And Why in the name of humanity was not this glorious consummation brought about Ages ago a is it because the slaves of 1838 Are better fitted for Freedom than those of fifty or a Hundred years since no one believes it. The Ottly a reparation for Freedom required in this Island or any where else m order to put a peaceful end to slavery is the pre operation of heart in the beholder to Glant Deliee Ranee to the Cap Feve.
