From the minutes of the proceedings of a
meeting, of the Patrons of Mr. nail's Select
School, held in the School room, August 27,
1856, we extract the following Preamble and
Whereas, Our Teacher has, during the last
six years, constantly subjected himself to
considerable pecuniary loss, by limiting his
school, for the benefit qf our chittlan, to a less
number of pupils than he always could have
had; and whereas, he now proposes, for the
same reason., to make additional sacrifices if
properly seconded by us; and whereas, we be
lieve that it will be true economy—a saving
of time to our children and money to our
selves, to accept his proposition. Therefore,
Resolved, That hereafter, this School shall
be limited to forty paying scholars, exclusive
V the Teacher's Class, and that the terms of
tuition shall be as follows, viz: Orthography
and Reading classes, $12,00 a scholar ;Fresh
man and Sophomore classes, $15,00 a schol
ar; and Junior and Senior classes, $lB,OO a
scholar, the one-third clue at the beginning
of each session and payable at the end of it.
Terms for the Teacher's Class to remain as
heretofore, $5,00 a month; $12,00 a session;
or $30,00 a year, payable in advance,
Resolved, That the number of scholars
above named, shall be so fixed and determi
nate that no addition can be made thereto,
during the school year, without the unani
mous consent of the present subscribers; and
that such consent must be presented to the
Teacher in writing, before he shall be at lib
erty to receive any additional patronage.
Resolved, That the Rules and Regulations
of this school, as revised and published, Au=
gust 24, 1854, together with the alterations
declared in the foregoing resolutions, are
hereby adopted for the government of the
school the ensuing year.
Resolved, That WO will sustain our Teach
er in the administration of these Rules, and
in the faithful discharge of his responsible
ditties; and that we will encourage all his ef
forts to promote the interests of his pupils,
and to secure the co-operation of his patrons,
Resolved, That if any subscribers not pres
ent at this meeting, shall disapprove of these
arrangements, their names may be withdrawn
from the subscription list, and others substi
tuted, who are willing to avail themselves of
Resolved, That these proceedings be sign

Huntingdon, Aug. 27, 1856.
A Pickpocket Detector has been invented
down East. It consists externally of a case,
resembling that of a - watch in size and shape.
It has a fob-chain or string, and is worn in
the pocket like a watch. Within the case is
a bell and spring -hammer, the latter connect
ed with the fob-chain. The supposition is
that the thief will suppose that the watch
chain is attached to a bona fide watch, and
will accordingly pull the chain in order to
obtain the prize. But instead of getting the
watch, 'the watch gets him. The pull sounds

the rogue, and the policeman conducts him
A MERITED SENTENCE.—In the Maine Su
preme Court, on sth inst., Michael Dunrow,
convicted of placing obstructions on a rail
road, was sentenced to thirty days solitary
confinement, and twenty years in the State
prison. This is a just sentence, and it is to
be hoped the courts throughout the country
will visit -with equally severe punishment
every one convicted of cooly - sporting with
human life. by scores, by placing obstructions
on railroads. '•
Another Highly Important Letter.
We ask the undivided attention of those
into whose hands this number of our paper
may happen to fall, to the able, and as it ap
pears to us, unanswerable positions assumed
in the communication which we publish be
low. Will the reader lay aside for one mo
ment his prejudices and prepossessions, and
calmly review the array of facts presented?
Their correctness will hardly be called in
question by any one who is at all familiar
with the history of our country. All we de
sire is that the subjoined letter should be read
with candor and attention:
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 20th, 1856.
To the Editor of the Pennsylvanian:
Sin—As regards the second position assum
,by us in our conversation, "That every
practical act of philanthropy in relation to
.Negro-Slavery, ji•ont and alter the adoption
of the Constitution, has emanated
been e f fectuated by the Slaveholding States and
their citizens," you will remember I said the
first great practical act on the subject pro
ceeded from Virginia, in the shape of the Or
dinance of 1787, when she surrendered to
the General Government the Territory now
composing the States of Ohio, Indiana, Illi
nois, Michigan and Wisconsin, with the pro
viso that Negro-Slavery should be forever ex
cluded from it, although by . the Local Law,
the whole was Negro-Slave 'Territory, This,
at least, is a full and fair set off to the aboli
tion of Negro-Slavery in the Northern States
prior to that time. For Negro: Slavery actu
ally existed in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, un
der their Territorial Govermnents, to a limi
ted extent, and it was only to a limited ex
tent that the same institution existed in the
Northern States when they abolished it. In
both there were but few Negroes in compari
son with the great mass of the population,
and the Slave-owners were rather an excep
tion to the general rule of the society than
otherwise. In neither had the system be
come interwoven with the general system of
the community, though acknowledged by the
Local Law of both. Besides, the Slave-own
ers found them valueless at home, and sold
them off for the most part, before the Acts of
Emancipation went into effect. But be this
as it may, by this one act of Virginia, a lar
ger realm of Negro-Slave Territory was made
non-Slaveholding Territory, than is embraced
in the whole of New England, New York,
New Jersey and Pennsylvania combined.—
What have the defamers of the South and
the Democracy to say to these facts?
The second great practical act of philan;
thropy on the subject, originating with the
South, arose immediately after the adoption
by the Federal Congress of the Ordinance of
1787, and is to be found in the clause of the
Constitution abolishing the Slave Trade.—
During the Session of the Convention to frame
the Constitution, the Representatives of the
Southern States, with the exception of South
Carolina, brought forward a proposition for
the immediate suppression of the Slave Trade.
This proposition was at once, warmly oppo
sed by the Representatives of most of the
Northern States, on the ground that the North
cm States were too deeply interested in that
trade to consent to its immediate suppression.
New England and Old England had not only
supplied the whole Continent of America,
for a hundred years, with negro slavery, and
to such extent, that it is undeniably . true,
that every negro-slave at this day living in
the Southern States, is held as such under
Bills of Sale originally from one or the other
of them ; but New England was at this very
time, largely engaged in the infamous traffic
and had millions of dollars invested in it.—
Neither New flamshire, nor Massachusetts,
nor Rhode island, nor Connecticut then saw
any philanthropy in the proposition of the
South to abolish this inhuman traffic. They
were too deeply concerned in its profits, and
had too much capital, and too many ships,
and tco many citizens involved in it, to sur
render it on any principle of National poli
cy, humanity or religion. Their Represen
tatives in the Convention, I will do them the
justice to say, ably and zealously , represented
the interests, feelings and wishes of their
constituents, in opposition to the measure of
the Southern Representatives for the imme
diate suppression of the Slave Trade.
The contest on the subject between the
North and the South, became at length so
heated, that for fear of breaking up the Con
vention without the accomplishment of union,
the South yielded to a compromise in favor
of the North. They agreed that the North
might enjoy the profits of the trade for twen,
ty years longer, but then it should cease.—
Hence the clause of the Constitution upon
which the act of Congress on the subject is
framed, reads "1808," instead. of 1788, as
the South would have had it. What have
the defamers of the South and of Democra
cy to say to these facts?
The third great practical act of philanthro
py proposed on the subject by the Southern
States, or their citizens, may be found in the
"Colonization Society" and the purchase of
"Liberia," on the coast of Africa, as a home
for emancipated negro slaves. The first na
tional president of this Society . was Chief
Justice John Marshall, of Virginia, and its
second national president was - Henry Clay,
of Kentticky. The first state president of
this Society in Virginia, was ex-President
James Madison, and its second state presi
dent in Virginia, was ex-President John Ty
ler. Space will not permit me to indulge in
details, but it will be scarcely denied that
this Association in its primary inception, in
its successful beneficence, in its happy provi
deuces, and the actual results it has already
Accomplished in behalf of the negro race,
both in America and in Africa, deservedly
ranks with all right-thinking and right in
tentional men, among the noblest institutions
of humanity of which the age can boast. It
has already Led to the emancipation of thou
sands who would otherwise have been forev
er slaves, and supplied them with all the ap
pliances and comforts of an independent home
and- free Republican government, in that
quarter of the world from which they origi
nally came, and to which God and nature as
signed them—where "none may make them
afraid," and from whence they may spread
the arts of peace and civilization among their
brethren over the continent of Africa. What
have the defamers of the South, and of the
Democracy to say to these facts? They abuse
the Colonization Society, because they perfer
the emancipated negro here to compete with
white labor in industrial pursuits, and with
white electors at our election polls. For one,
I had rather have them further off, if eman
The fourth great practical philanthropy
manifested by the South and her citizens, in
connexion with negro slavery, may be found
in the strongest and purest expression of eman
cipation sentiment probably ever made by man,
to which I shall advert, and, for which I am
indebted to the Rev. Dr. Stiles, of the Pres
byterian Church North, much of whose lan
guage even I shall use. how shall we try
the purity and power of a sentiment in the
human heart? Surely not by words—not by
any process of stubborn and imperious agita
tion—not by any transient aid and comfort
furnished to flying slaves, All these, and
many similar developements, may cost but
little. The power of a principle exhibits it
self by the labors it can put forth, the oppo
sitions it can resist, the self-denials it can
bear, and the sacrifices it can make. Where
shall we find the most commanding expres
sion of that calm, enlightened, benign, high
souled sentiment of emancipation in connec
tion with the negro slave, which is uttered by
the 'sacr?fice? Will you point to England and
her £20,000,000 for the liberation "of the
blacks in the West Indies? These things
will work an abatement of our appreciation
of this act of England. First, this sum was
furnished by the richest treasury in the world.
Second, only the annual interest of this sum
has been paid ; the principal never will be
until her national debt is paid, which can
never be. Third, this sum was paid by her,
not to benevolent principle, but to self-inter
est. She thought that free labor in the West
Indies would be far superior to slave labor
there, and therefore, by . the Act of Enia.nei
pation, she would get her sugars at a penny
a pound less than she was then paying, which
would return to her 100,000,000 of pounds
in the place of the 20,000,000 pounds thus
expended. Again she desired to open up the
abolition question, to produce strife and dis
sension in this Union, that constituted her
great rival in commerce and manufactures,m-=
England never yet performed a disinterested
national act of philanthropy. But the citi
zens of the Southern States, since the adop
tion of the Constitution, have emancipated
250,000 negro slaves. Assuming the E. verage
value of these slaves to have been five hurt:
dred dollars, which is under rather than over
the mark, the citizens of the Southern States
have contributed $125,000,000 towards e»xan
eipation. And when we consider that in al
most every case of individual emancipation
at the South, a sum equal to the full value of
the slave, has been invariably given to him
to enable him to purchase a home for himself,
and in addition to this, the immense sums
contributed to the Colonization Society by
others, we do not exaggerate the sum volun
tarily bestowed in this way by the South,
when we set it down at $250,000,000. This
immense sum has been actually paid out, not
interest only, but principal also ;—not by a
rich public treasury, but by private families,
who lived by the slaves they surrendered ;
not for the public eye, but in the retirement
of private life;- , .not under circumstances
which provided the slightest hope of pecuni
ary emolument, but from no other possible
motive than quiet and conscientious senti
ment. What can the defamers of the South
and of Democracy say to these facts?
The fifth great philanthropic manifestation
made by the Southern States and their citi
zens in this. connection, may be found in the
fact, that they have effectuated a larger con
version of the heathen than the whole world
beside, through` the conversion of their negroes
from Barbaric Polytheism to Christianity/ and
God. What is the whole number of Heath
ens which the ,American Church presents -at
this day as converts to Christianity? The
American Board of Missions have 26,000;
the Baptist, 15,000; the Methodist, 13,000;
the Presbyterians, 250; and the Epipcoppli
ails only "il—in all 54,321. For this state
ment I am indebted to' the Rev. Dr, Stiles, of
the Presbyterian Church North. Now, one
branch alone of the Methodist Church South,
numbers 134,722 negro-slave members, more
than three times the number of heathen con
verts than the combined American Church
can produce. The number of members in
the whole heathen church of the world, ac
cording to the ablest and best authorities,
reaches only 200,000 members. Look again
at the South. To say nothing whatever of
the colored members of the churches in Ma
ryland, (and they . arc numerous;) nor of those
of the Presbyterian Church South; nor those
of the Episcopal Church South; nor those of
the Lutheran Church South, and several oth
er denominations, all of - which have many
colored members, There are enrolled upon
the lists of two church denominations alone,
at the South, negro-members in the Methodist
Church 134,000, and in the Baptist Church
130,000, making in these two branches only,
264,000 heathen converts. Thus it appears
that the South and her citizens have redeem
ed scores of thousands more of the family of
man from savageism and heathenism than all
the churches of the "Free Soil" of the world
combined have yet gathered within their fold.
It seems indeed, that the Almighty in his
wisdom has selected southern institutions and
southern philanthropy, through the grace of
the Saviour, as his methods of removing the
curse from Ham and redeeming Africa.—
What, I again ask, have the defamers of the
South and ofDemocracy to say to these facts?
They can only answer through the ravings of
I might enlarge upon the great additional
philanthropic fact connected with the subject
of the vast social and mental improvement of
the negro slave of the Southean States, since
his first introduction there by old England
and New England, but I fear to impose too
much upon you. When landed in this coun
try, the African captive belonged to the most
degraded heathen and barbarian tribes upon
the face of the globe. His descendants are
now far removed from the universal debase
ment of his progenitors. Changes for the
better have marked the history of negro sla
very from its commencement to the present
hour.. Not only has the slave been redeemed
from barbarism to civilization, and from heaths
enism to christianity, but from being in his
social condition, a blood-thirsty and predato
ry animal, living by the butcheries ho was
eternally committing upon his fellows, he has
been rendered an orderly member of society,
humane to his fellows, and of vast benefit to
the family of man. The laws of the South
ern States in reference to the negro slave, are
more benign than any code of laws in refer
ence to a subject class, ever framed among
men; and the customs of the dominant class
exact from him less labor, and bestow upon
him more care than the customs of any dom
inant class in Europe exact from and bestow
upon its so7called " •,.13-ee white laborers." Ev
erywhere else in the world the laboring class
es have to proyide themselves with houses,
lands, clothing, food, fuel and niedical atten
dance, and have also to take care of their
aged, infirm and adol,escent. If one i$ too
old for work, or too infirm for work, or too
young for work in other societies, and has no
family or friend -who can and will proyide for
him out of his daily acquired pittance, he
necessarily has to appeal to charity and the
alms house for the means to sustain life : —
The daily receipts of the day laborer, even
in the best regulated communities elsewhere,
but scantily supply the means of paying rent,
and providing requisite food, raiment, fuel,
and medical attendance for himself and fami
ly. Sickness or accident often subject him
to the mercy of his landlord, and render him
destitute of the necessaries of life. In the
Southern States the negro slave is always
bountifully supplied with all the necessaries
of life, never suffers from the want of medi
cal attendance, has his aged and infirm and
adolescent amply provided for, and reared in
comfort, cultivates the land whose products
return to himself rent free; and never, from
the hour of his birth to the day of his death,
passes a day without being secure in his ten
ement and home. Even his family, though
liable to be sold, are nevertheless more uni
ted in time and space, than the families of
the slaveholders themselves, and incompara
bly more so than the families of the North
that rarely "abido in one story," which fact
is too easy of demonstration to p.dmit of ar
In conclusion, the census of 1850 exhibits
the statistics showing less blindness, deafness,
lunacy and suffering among the negro slaves
of the South than among any other four mil
lion of laborers in the universe, with regard
to whom statistics have been made; and to
this fact our enemies can answer nothing.
The third position I assumed in our Con
vention I will consider in my next,
