I was in Antigua in february. 1 there Beard that Montserat lying in sight of Antigua had resolved upon foe total about Iofe of slavery on the first of August i supposed As did others that foe inf Lucoe of foe contiguous Island of anti go a had led to this result and did not for a to aet indulge foe thought that the other islands would do foe same. On my return to Barbados i found that Foo subject was freely Lalk of and in the course of a few weeks frown foe time that foe Quesi Iob tji ised among foe people foe sentiment in Tavik of abolition became quite general. On foe 17fo is a Bill was to be brought before foe the members came to town and foe general sex of citation was that foe Bill would pans. But at the h meeting a Qto my was not food May Fearm to meet the question had House and no business could be done. The friends of emancipation Felt their High raised Hopes a Little damped but the result showed that there was no cause of alarm. The members had deserted in posts immediately commenced a canvass oath ctr a respective parishes to ascertain the sentiments or or constituents. The governor convened the Hoik following week and on the 24th of april lug Foh House fresh from Fos instructions of foe proprietors of the flute population the Bill giving entire Freedom to Tomc slaves on foe 1st of August passed with but a me dim mating voice i was present at the do hate and it was one As you May suppose of 8urpai, fog interest.

It was a glorious Victory indeed Over Pride tyranny love of pow a a Rice and every bad passion. I verily believe that the Joy of Joe emancipated slave was not to be compared to Foai of those who handheld them in bondage. But you May ask would trip owners of the slaves theirs clues have Ever granted in the first instance if great Britain had not struck the first Biow t Uii double july they never would. It is witnessing the results of partial emancipation though which has wrought this mighty change in foe lie arts of the Siave hold and makes Inera now gladly break the last a Jyh Bondmen a chains. Since the passage of inf emancipation oct thousands have been voluntarily set free. The proprietors seem determined to have the credit and satisfaction of doing so Nething in the great work As individuals and when the first of August comes with the act of Universal Freedom there will probably be in in Island but very few subjects for it to operate upon. I have Only to add that All is tranquil Here. St. Kitts Nevis St. Vincents Grenada Tortolo have All followed the example of this Island and i think that Ere this season is past not a vestige of slavery will remain in the British West indies. The pall of prejudice on Sacco int of color will soon be entirely removed front All these islands. Ignorance which in a Community of slaves reigns with unbounded Mastery Over the whole soil must give Way under foe new order of things. Thousands of Black children Are at school in different parts of the Island and you May see mothers and even grand a outliers curning to read by the assistance of these children. And As we daily see from our window foe crowds of Happy and intelligent looking boys going to and from school it is impossible not to perceive that they will be among the Fuire legislators of the Coli Itaf. There is an inf fit school for Black children very near to where we live and if any one doubted in regard to the intellect of foe african race i would like to Point him to the com tenancies of these infants who have begun to learn. There Are no Marks of stupidity there but Preckel foe same animation quickness and expression that arc seen in schools in foe United red the had been deceived it returned to the Village enter night when one of the inhabitants began to barricade hta smoke Louee Anding he feared some one would steal Bis meat now they Felt assured the negroes were in the smokehouse and set a watch while a part Wen for a wan ant the Justice declined giving a warrant to search for stolen Gooda in the night so they had no alternative hut to keep the watch until were stationed with pistols while the rest Lepf but they were hardly quiet in bed before a whittle was heard suspicion was excited they were Tom the abolitionists were about to take the negroes and that they led them through by ways a with a Ball a Pursuit was Given through Briar and Brake Mountain and Deli until Day tight left them nothing to Hope from it and they return to search the smoke House. A warrant was about to % Ptim our readers cured when in Justice cutting his eyes to the Street saw the roasts he Riding briskly out of town and informed hts customers that unless he was detained there would be none to serve the warrant Pursuit was made and he overtaken about three Miles from town. A new Difili Cully now arose they had no warrant and the Constable had other business which he must do first what Sli Ould they do they were told another costs de lived on the other Side of town about two Miles they Clu Rcd for him. In the mean those at the smoke House were encountered with new difficulties the owner let Egan to tear off the roof of the House so that the slaves might is Caine. As they supposed this they forbid and threatened to shout him if he Persia red. He obtained a warrant for the assault and the Constable having returned it was served on them. This was too bad they swore they would not go and leave the Alavo a to escape resistance w As vain but to pacify them the Constable opened the smokehouse door and behold no slaves were there in prey were taken Lief re the Justice and fined. Their insolence was in Toler Alde and their abuse was arrested by a threat to Send them to Mcconnelsville jail. Thus ended this farce much to their discomfiture.

Proscription. Doct. Bailey dear sir As a specimen of the prescriptive spirit of the opponents of anti-8iavery principles i will briefly relate the proceedings of a whig convention held at Chardon Beauga county a few Days since. In the first place those towns in which anti slavery principles have taken deepest Root and in which there is a majority of Anit Severy voters were very thinly represented some of them were not represented at All. But there Are Throe towns Wahidi Are decidedly to and those Hirse towns were greatly Owr represented and sent several More delegates than was their equitable number for the express purpose of voting Down any candidates that might he tainted with abolition Bra. And of they did Bat in order to effect their object some were obliged to it put in two votes for one candidate and when they came to canvass they found five More votes than there were delegates. But so intent were they on Good people May wrest a die Niage of their fellow men with out fee or Reward. I Trust however they base not wealth enough to bribe us to Annfa iniquity por we so. Devoid of of principles As to be brought 1 submit Dur twi sciences to their Otan Derd of Ohdo a wbk a we do a we shall deserve their kind a re a a Iii when we Violata their territory by setting our feet upon their sail the guar Antoe of the Constitution of the United states that 1 he Citi Lens of each slate shall be entitled to the privileges and in my in the several Stales a an or be deprived of life lib it Yew property without due process of Law. When they come amongst us to reclaim their human Chatt efe a which cannot take care of them Selvana they As Eunmi to lord it Over our ito lored a vixens search their houses threaten them and the and talk As if they were indeed endowed by their cd Kator with Somaoa Over Tebei fellow men few ind etl i Trust Here Are amongst us who will submit longer to Thor arrogance for one i say let them beware How a tvs come Here to exhibit their meanness prowling about on Prem sea eaves dropping Atid hiring the scum of owes vice and this Village to do such things that they May reclaim women who escaped from their contaminating Guart Manship and Are seeking a land whare they May claim the ownership of their own bodies and the guardians of their hew Tity. Their names Are known and deeds which should make the Moat debased Blush May yet be proclaimed to the world that it May Learie to know slavery and despise those who claim to Uve it As a right. Let me set the i right in one particular a they Sty an of ignited band Ara constant Gid Ity of indict by abetting and aiding these Hasapes. There a no Nee easily for a Okliar out other to escapes than those the masters and i stresses a Tver these Are abundantly sufficient and the assertion if intended to insinuate that the friends of the slaves go amongst them to induce them to escape is As base As the Ai or who assorted it. And that is enough. That there Are those who with the slave and give him food Zaimant and Money with our Best advice and a takes both a it i Tionesta and we do not deny and i Cap inform this editor that there Are few Here we an honest n an would prise As an associate who give iffy Zairi Tenace to the kid Napper whether under the color of human Law or not i and those who have any reputation to lose had better remove la where soc this Are countenanced. Inere Are a few men in a Ness a he whom the slave holders know As their willing tools who Are constantly in their employ the very sight of whom of this aide of the River be notice mischief and puts the friends of humanity upon the Alert. Last Gik three coloured freemen on their return from Cinci Mim to pitl Simgh from which place they had gone on a keel boat which was left in Conser Uerice of the lowness of the water were about to be Ltd napped by these persons but two of our friends on this Side observing How they were followed prevented it from a slave Stato had Given notice that the Dolce red my Mere in the mood a but wodday and the fact that they were slaves was Imsen fur granted Beeai Mulbey had a skin not comply thing their designs that they refused to re consider the canvass Aslet Alcnse the abolition candidate for stale representative a Nan who was Well known in the last legislature As an enlightened financier and even a know cd by his opponents to be the Brnt Man they could elect we it not that he was an open Frank unwavering Abbot itt Onist which was a crime to race Reprima Ion too great to be tolerant would have had a majority. After disposing of All Maboti zionists if that mean illegal cowardly manner the convention proceeded to choose delegates to District Conye of to by bed it Bloton Febu of a candidate to be run for Congress. An abolitionist was then proposed As one of the delegates to Tiit con Vendor and suffice it to say that he has Ever been considered on e of the most enlightened farinos and judicious men in the county. But he was guilty of being a Friend to the oppressed consequently he was a hotly Dhanu life eve to be a Delegate to a con Votion and Wah at of ice to ced Down in the same illegal and underhanded manner re it a them berth that it wat not Kun in or that fight of a oks Tiow Iete that their Pitt com were to be the the of Guf Liti to a Jyce until Aller the meeting was Organ Jed for if that fact bad been divulged the Reuhs wout id have been very differ enl i apprehend. Now sir what is our duty As abolitionists is it not quite time that the abolition its of Beauga come a Uland take a decided political sited against this accursed spirit of oppression a of opinion the position is forced or on us. One of the Best ind most fit men in the county a a state representative acknowledged to be such Ewe Boykis Opp Onitt a Pica Erilien for nothing but his Mph Difu t Soi Fri for nothing but an opinion. In fever of what ? Why of free doing Freedoine of thang hts Freedom of speech and Frea die Olsfon. Do such such proceedings Harrio Vize with the principles of Jefferson Are they in accordance with the spirit of our state and Federal Constitution do they coincide with ? is it n of time that abolitionists were awake to their Pouti Eai Dutie i Shanw Esil quietly Down and per met this pro slavery spirit to Batter Down every landmark of Republican Huberty anal dts Franchisin Avery Friend a of Freedom an a Amanita make the Man who has the Morai your at to think for Kimeff and raise his a Oka against oppression Ine Guible to say office simply Beaute he is an advocate of Freedom f but the said Abs fiction candidate above refer red to had the audacity at the last session of the Ohio to rate Bis Voi Ltd be he was actually in favor of ameliorating the condition of the free people of color of this state and offered a Resolution requiring the auditor of this state to furnish a report exhibiting the amount of Money that had been collected of the Black population to a locate a a of their Man Chuden that would be worse than four but to educate the White children of Ohio teds was is Arimes in this he exposed is acres a and it was enough. A what need we further evidence to Down with him Down with him. But these Wei of Beauga have outdone themselves and if i am not mistaken they will find in the sequel that their prescriptive spirit will not be sustained at the ballot Box. A subscriber. We Hope so. Let the whig abolitionists of gear a county ascertain the sentiments of the Van Boren candidate and if they ibo favourable to anti slavery give him their votes. But if both candidates he Rotten let abolitionists remain aloof time will teach Politi Tana Wisdom.

Gave new animation and off cosy went after pursuing far that Foey Felt ass 1c? the West May expect that for two or three years to come there will be two sets of accounts of a matters and things in the West indies. So it was in relation to the working of tie apprenticeship system and so it will be in a Clatious to the results of abolition. The enemies of emancipation will Lay Lipold of every fault of the negro and magnify it of every temporary vexatious inconvenience and publish it As a specimen of the results of abolition. A Large class of political and religious editors in this country will draw All their information exclusively from this source. If some of the negroes turn idlers this will be retailed As an evidence of the to Pouch of emancipation. If some of them stand out for higher wages this will be set Down to use account of All the Good effects of the act will be unnoticed and unpublished. On the other hand the friends of emancipation will give the other Side of the picture. From them we shall hear Little of the evil but much of the Good. In one thing however they will differ from Thek antagonists w Hile they proclaim the Guiod effects of emancipation chiefly they will not conceal or deny that there May be Petty Vexa Lions and inconveniences. We do Hope that both the anti slavery and pro slavery press in this country whether it be religious or political will give the Elwie troth pub Lish fair and full reports on both sides of the question so that the american people May be enable pc to judge correctly concent aug this important matter. For one we will try to do our duty in this Way. Id the third of next october an anti slavery meeting will be held at West Bam More. Two clerical gentlemen messes. Stubbs and Boyl Cit it in expected will be in attendance As speakers. A news from the West on our first Page and read the accounts of the horrible devastation and ruin produced by immediate a Manci potion in the West indies. Testified to by the planters themselves and familiar to every pc Ragm in this country who has made the apprentice Syl Terai a subject of observation that this system so flu from having been a school of preparation to the Lalye a state in which the planters and negroes would gradually become fitted of a sustain the new relations soon to arise Betseen them was in fact As degrading to the slave As the old system Eft him no More Lime for improvement subjected him to is Manji cruelties was move irritating to oth parties and directly calculated to create a deadly hostility Between master and slave. Let us hear a greater Man than the Herald Etlis Tor. In the British emancipator for june 6th, there is published a letter from lord Broughan to Enjamin Smith m. P., in answer to one written by this gentleman containing strictures on Brougham a course in advocating immediate emancipation he following extracts Are worthy of notice. A experience a says his lordship a has proved that those who were for emancipation without apprenticeship were right because it has proved that the negro is capable of industrious habits the moment you make him again a a you justly term the bargain of 1833 one which has jailed to produce adequate Benefit to the slaves but Why simply because those who made it if it was a bargain which i deny believed that the slaves could not with advantage or even safety to themselves be made at once a a the transition state was agreed to for the Benefit of the slaves themselves and it was reluctantly agreed to because we believed erroneously As experience has since proved that they were not Jit for Freedom Quot another extract and one peculiarly appropriate to the editor of the colonization Herald who is Ond of citing St. Domingo against us a a i cannot however in passing avoid to remark on the prodigious thoughtlessness which could make you cite St. Domingo against him Bulwer in 838, in proof of the negroes unfitness for immediate Freedom. Many abolitionists myself among the rest held this doctrine in former times others dissented from it. But after the example of Antigua and bermudas which the last three years Lave furnished to decide the question forever can by Man believe it possible that a person Jafet log to reason upon the subject should revert to the disputed experience of forty years ago Olid shut his eyes to what is now Intonte Stiim by going on before his face. Will the Herald editor please to answer lord Brougham a questioned. Of Phil p. S. Another fad in relation to the Choice of a Cali Didato for representation ought to be noticed and noticed too to foe shame and disgrace of Geaugh a county it is the a although a majority of the whigs of a Beauga profess to be Temperance men yet they hate abolition so much More than intemperance that they not Only disposed of the anti slavery candidate in the unfair and illiberal manner above mentioned but selected in his Stead a rom be Era a Roan who Retalia liquor by foe Glass sundays As Well As As other Days and follows the Busiere for a five Hood. When 1 reflect upon the doings of the convention i can hardly believe that i reside in the enlightened county of Beauga. Shall foe voters of Beauga petition their representative next session to use his influence to effect such a Reform As Mas a Achus Seta and Tenn Faaee ? not for be would probably go for distilleries and Gri Geriena. Besides a is a know lodged by Bis supporters to be As much inferior to the Abol Trion candidate in Point of business Talent and general intelligence As can Welt be fact would of equip be inferred from foe manner in which he grins a livelihood by be tailing spirituous liquors.

C7 a Large Supply of Olcott a lec tums has just been received. We shall fill out the numerous orders already forwarded for them so soon As possible. C7 we rejoice that read re of anti slavery works Are multiplying in the West. The demand for books is rapidly increasing. This is a Good sign. There should be anti slavery libraries throughout the a ample. How much might be done in this Way by our Oliree Hundred societies we Call on these societies to awake. Books must now do the of lecturers and they will do it effectually if ouf friends one and All will Only take hold of the matter vigorously. Come Send in our orders Luisa the Money. Cash payments a this is our role. Publishing agent has for some weeks past been forwarding accounts to subscribers of dues to the philanthropist. Occasionally a mistake is made and a Bill sent to some punctual a body a who has already cleared off old scores and the colonization Herald is vexed by use abolitionists Are so vociferous in their expressions of Joy at the recent events in the British colonies its editor rejoices with a chastened Joy. Abolitionists never see beyond their noses but he is a philosopher he reviews the past he dives deeply into the future fearful visions flit before him he fears More than he Hopes he remembers Hayti he shudders when lie thinks of a a Lacfi lords am a Black Empire terrible struggles a much bloodshed a extinguished civilization and yet on the whole he is sanguine enough to believe that the Blacks will at length acquire Possession a without much we would remind the Herald that the supreme governor of the universe has. Not left this Earth or its inhabitants without fixed and uniform Laws and that All his attributes Are pledged to punish disobedience and Reward obedience to them. To to do wrong is not Only to act wickedly but foolishly it is to contend with supreme Power and Wisdom to continue in a wrong practice under the apprehension that evils will Follo w from its reformation greater than from its continuance is not to act the philosopher but shall we say it it is to act the fool for it is to suppose that god has annexed penalties to obedience and comparative rewards to Dis obedience. To doubt when men have Abol shei an immense system of wrong and stand in fear lest ceasing to do evil should be productive of More harm than continuing to do evil betrays shallow philosophy great ignorance of the Laws of the moral world and a surprising want of of tilth in god we have no fears with regard to the results o emancipation in the West indies. If slavery be a wrong action emancipation is a right one am the almighty must approve of it because it is obedience to his own Laws and he will assuredly of Low it with his Blessing if there be Quot any troth in his word. May bewilder themselves with Freir so called philosophy we shall cling to our Faith. The inconvenience of a facts contradict a Many screed the Man is very Apt to contradict facts. In the opinion of the gradualist and colonization St immediate emancipation madness the Only Safe kind of abolition is that which is gradual and conditional. Unluckily for these speculate its the facts relating to West India emancipation frown upon their dogmas. What then is to be done a must we confess ourselves in the wrong nay verily we have a Creed and is True because we have always believed it so it cannot be exactly fitted to facts fact must be fitted to Titius the colonization Herald speaking of the apprenticeship system says a a Titia system of gradual emancipation has been in a a Evatte not four a dirt but i foot satisfy of i Iber of foe two parties a tile Okkens of the Esta Tes or the working people on them. Stitt the lapse of time has served to in apace both to masts and tvs Siats for foe new relations which they were destined to take and have now actually taken towards each these remarks Are made in the very Teeth o the oct believed in by the entire British nation t l and he has not changed his views in regard to it and declines to give a pledge Richer to the friends or enemies of anti slavery. In thus declining we think he did right. We abhor pledges. We. A. Penniman can4idatc for the general Assembly is Trief and to the print.
