Since the ,attention of the reader is
drawn to this subject, we
,m‘ty as well
show a little more fully how die peculiar
institution " corrupts the manners and
mom . of all connecte4 with it. The
following, from the Boston Common-
tvealth is respectfully submitted to the
ttention.of all defenders of Slavery
The marriage relationvf the laborers
of the South seem to give those who
claim them as property, a great deal of
trouble. The following advertisement,
which we find in a recent number of the
Chiirleston Mercury, gives us some idea
- .
of the inconvenience to which slave
holders are su!jected by the absurdity of
their chattels having conjugal affeciion3 :
"Ftrty Dot.t.Ans REWARD.—Rana way
from the subscriber, at his residence in
Summerville, his negro fellow Winter;
be was purchased last Spring from the
Estate of VA! Pontoux—has a wife
near Vance's Perry, where he is sup
posed lo have done; he had when he
left a cut on one of his right toe:, made
by an axe. The said negro is Awn. 27
or 28 years of age, 5 leet 7 or 13 inches
high, and rather quick spoken. The
above reward,will be paid for proof to_
conviction of his having been harbored
by any r.'sponsible white person or free
person of color, or ten dollars if delivered
to me at my residence, or at Master of
Work House at Charleston. • .
It is probable that if Winter had not
had a wife at Vance's Ferry, he would
not, have run away and put his master
to all this trouble.
In the same paper and in juxtaposi•
Lion with the above, we find the follow
ing t
Run away ;in Slay last, a mulatto girl
named Ceely. She is about 25 years of
age, rather short, thick lips,! bad teeth,
on her upper, lip near. th6•lnouth'is a
'small scar ; is well known by most of the
Policemen of the city. Slre• has been
seen repeatedly about town, and has a
husband named John, belonging to Mr.
- Burn. in SI. Philip st., near Radcliff,
and is no doubt harbored by him. Tne
abiwe reward will be paid for her appre
hension. Apply at. this office."
New,,in the name of common sense
and humanity, what right has Ceely: a
mere chattel—nothing but property—to
run away front her master and go to her
husband ? Then again... why should
Ceely's husband, John, harbor his own
There' certainly must be something
strong, or at least some deficiency, in
the statutes of South Carolina relative to
this subject. The slave laws 'have not
been carefully drawn, or else these things
would not occur. When the laws of
the State converted what God made as
tnen and women into personal prokrty,
by some oversight the blotting °A of the
• human affections and aspirations was
omitted. Hence all this difficulty about
naetvand women running away•tO their
wives and husbands. We would recnm
mend that at the next session of the
Legislature of South Carolina there be
an act passed to amend the creative' act
of. the Almighty by abolishing the hu
man affections in the hearts of all per
sons known as slavfi3. This is the only
• effectitil remedy . for this description of
runaway trouble.

The C'omtuittee on Resolutions being
called upon, reported the 'following, as
agreed to by a majority of said Com

WHEREAS, The cause of Temperance
recommends itself to the reason of: min';
in that community where it. obtains, do
mestic peace, prosperity, and happiness '
ire promoted, and the great interests of
mankind 'more dispassionately cortiill;
erett; and. whereas, the dissemination of
Temperance principles more- generally
among us is necessary to secure a com
plete triumph of the cause in this State,
in the enactment and enforcemeni Of a
prohibitory law. Therefore,' I. • -
1. Resolved. That we pledge our
selves to renewed effort to inculcate
Temperance principles.. I I
. ,
2. Resolved, That the timelbas com e
when no person can be found who does
prof-ss to• be in favor of the TeMperance
cause, the only question being how that
cause is to bu promoted.

hence we have met together to-day to
have the living speaker preach the Gos
pel of Temperance, and present in all
their different phases the arguments and
facts which appeal to the jedgment in
favor of abstaining entirely - from the use
. .
of intoxicating drinks ; • -
4. Resolved. That it -is the duty of
every person. to ,avoi . d. temptation.;, so•it
is a like duty to remove temptatien.from
others ; aria hence, alter we 'have con
vinced the judgment - that the''‘'ae- of
strong drink as a beverage is the sure,
road to- pauperism, misery,' and Arinne,
we have done but half our duty to the
unforturette whose appetites. are stron ge r
' •
than their reason-- till wahava'batiiihed
from society the insidious poison. that
charms but to destroy. '''•
5. Resolved, That tills . work - can 'Only
be accomplished by convincing the peo

ing those laws which sustain mid up
hold the traffic in intoxicating.'drinks„
and enacting in their stead a law 'which
shall entirely prohibit said trainer and

friend of Temperance to vote forme 'nian
for a legislative office who isnotan open
