Abolitionism In Old Knglund and New
We publish >o day a very significant arti
cle from the London Jimcs, which 'reflects
the prevalent sentiment of British states
men on the question of restoring shivery in
the British colonies of the tropics. For years
the British aristocracy have instigated all
manner of mischief in the United States by
violent appeals to the mock philanthropy of
the abolitionists; and have used every means
to inflame a spirit of disunion.
Now they are compelled to defend slavery,
not as a necessity but as a choice. In this
country the prevalent feeling is to devise a
remedy for the evil—in England the ques
tion is how to open anew the traffic with
some semblance of decency, and without
giving too blunt an offence to the moral
sense of the world. It is therefore proposed
that some sort of free contract ghall exist
between the negro and his master, but it
would very evidently be suqh a free con
tract as the wolf makes wjtJl tho lamb—such
as the French Emporor makes with his peo
ple—or such as England herself makes with
her degraded serfs of India.
It is very late in the day for British states
men to manifest conscientious scruples on
this or any other subject. Sho stocked the
Western World with slaves, and tho jnfa
mous opium trade which she forces upon
China at the mouth of the cannon is not jot
less nefarious than the slave traffic.
But we have adverted to this subject to
point out the fact that the hypocritical cant
of New England is just like that of Old Eng
land. In the olden time it was the men of
New England who grew rich upon tho trade
in human flesh and blood; and it was their
representatives who, in the formation of the
national constitution, voted to continue the
slave trade 21 years longer than was the
wish and vote of such States as Pennsylva
nia and Virginia. Now the degenerate sons
of New England come among us with the
price their fathers made out of this unholy
traffic rattling in their pockets, while with
sanctimonious cant they try to teach Penn
sylvania and Virginia the law of rectitude
and humanity.
Some of the facts in the article from the
London Times are too true, and it furnishes
matter for serious reflection.

Proposed National DUnnion Convention.
The Committee of the Massachusetts State
Disunion Convention, which waa held at
Worcester, hairing circulated for signature! a
call for a National Disunion Convention, to
be held at some plsce not yet named, in Oc
tober, "to consider the practicability, proba
bility and expediency of a separation be
tween the free and the slave States, and to
take such other measures ss the condition of
the times may require." (h their circular let
ter eccempar.yieqj tho call, the committee,
coniieting ol Thomas Wentworlh Higginson,
We nil a# Phillips, F. W. Bird, Daniel Mann,
and Wm. Lloyd Garrison, say:
" From mere politics, there is little to be ex
peoted. The slave power baa always com
mended just votes enough to carry its meas
ures, and, under our present organization,
always will. If the Republican party told
truth, last November, the Presidential elec
tion transferred the balance of power, more
than ever, to the side of slavery. It has four
years of corruption, conquest and annexation
before it, and it remains to be proved that
any purely political combination can defeat
it. On tho other hand, the attitude of Repub
liean leaders is now, as always, one of timid
ity and compromise. They depreoaie, with
profuse caution, the charge of any disposition
to inietfere with slavery, as it is, and claim
the support of Southern men, for their nomi
nations, as affording undiminished security to
(the slave properly. It is evident that the
mass of RepublintA voters, in many States,
are becoming more radically anti-slavery.—
And cothing will do so much to promote that
desirable change, as the fearless discussion
we propose. Undoubtedly the first object is

of the Clinton Democrat repels the low abuse
of the Rellefonle Know Nothing organ, which
denounced Judge Thompson as a drunkard,
and says had it charged the Judge with hav
ing been the companion of Cain in the mur
der of Abel, it would not have been farther
from the truth. Now hear the Erie Dispatch,
published at Judge Thompson's residence:
"Judge Thompson is a Democrat— we are
a Republican. In his political conduct we
have not always approved of bis course, but
as a man and a jurist he has ever had our
admiration and shall have our support for the
office to which he has been nominated. We
know the man and do not know his oppo
nents —henco we are not grappling in the
dark. The legal ability of Judge Thompson
is of high order—socially he commands the
respect of all, and as n friend to the oppress
ed, he has hoß's of friends who are politically
opposed to him who u ill give hirn their sup
port, becuuse they know that he, as a jurist,
will know no parly, and that he has no friends
to reward or no enemies to punish."
IV The Muncy Luminary goes into hys
terics because of the appointment of William
Michael as Postmaster at Muncy, in place of
Whitlock, removed. Mr. M. held the office
under the administration ef President Pylk,
and was a very Excellent and popular officer.
He was removed, however, by ihe prescrip
tive administration of Gen. Taylor, and Mr.
Whitlock was appointed. Now the tables
are turned again, and much loss is made, if
the Luminary informs us correctly, about the
re-appointment of man who was removed
only because he was a Democrat. The op
position never did relish the displacement of
their friends and the appointment ol Demo
crats to fill their plaoes. Mr. Michrel is a
hard working and induetrioua mechanic, an
honest, man, and a faithful and efficient of
cently convicted of the murder of Samuel T.
Norcroes at Alttioni, and now in jail at Hol

aged to get possession of a case knile with

discovery by the jailor, be would doubtless
have escaped.
SURVIVING GOVERNORS. —Pennsylvania has
only four surviving Ex-Governors, Kilner,

eight of New York, viz.: Ven Buren, Throop,
Seward, Bouck, Hunt, Fish, Seymour and
Clatk, and Massachusetts has six, viz.: Ev

Washburn. The difference in the number is
owing to the duration of the term of office in
a great measure.

In 1815, Thomas feffereon, the great apos

General Dearborn,of Massachusetts in which
occurs the following paragraph :
"Oh, Massachusetts 1. how I lament the
degradation of your apoalacy! Let ue look
forward, then, to the act of repeolance, which,
by diminishing her venal traitors, shall he the
signal of return to the bosom snd to the prin

Tristram Burgees, in a speech in Congress,

There is in t ese countries a vast region,

Frse Loveism in Ohio.—Free love-ism has
broken out in Ohio, which, next to Massa
chusetts, exhibits the largest amount of men
tal derangement in the population. At a re
cent convention in Ravenna, one lady dele
gate said, "although ehe had one husband in
Cleveland, eMMoOT? , dered herself married to
the whole hnritan race. All men were her
husbands, and she had an undying love for
them." She said also, "what business is it
.to the world whether one man is the lather
of my children or ten men are? I have the
right to 9ay who shall bs the father of my off
spring." The universal affection creed is
crossed with spiritualism and a very strong
trace of relipoa* infidelity. Whether the
three will become incorporated into a new
religion is yet subject of doubt, though there
are strong leanings that way.

Every one knows or'think* he knows some
thing about epidemics. When cholera or

if it doe* nothing else it seta everybody con
jecturing causes for it* having come thi* par
ticular year and not another. Eaoh one brings
up facta in support of hia theory, and though
the theories may die, the Tacts remain. In
the present age-, news Dies by lightning; facts
compared and tiffed. Th old theories
are rapidly exploded,knd broader generaliza
tions take their plaoe.
Are not epidemics all the effects of passion?
Of this there seems very little doubt. Thus
scarlet fever is lound to be best treated, when
regarded as an irritating eubstance perhaps
inhaled through the lungs into the blood, but
chiefly to be expelled Irom the system thro'
the surface, that is the akin, where its poiaon
is destroyed. The chief effort of medicine
should, therefore, be to stimulate the system
so as to enable it to expel the poison, instead
of allowing the vital powers to be depressed
by it. If a person is bitten by a rattlesnake,
every pbysicitn knows that the bast treat*
meat is a stimulant. Brandy, whiskey, or
1 ammonia must be kept at work upon the
system, and the vital forces can bardly be
rallied. This seems now to be considered
the best method of treating fevers. They
must be considered as poisons which have
got In be slqvrly worked out of the system.
But they work Aeir way In t This
is Ibe next question. Is it'in what we eat or
what we drink, by the touch or through in- 1
halation ? There seema to be no reason to
doubt that it may be by any of these means.
The effect of poisons on the skin, and their
different results at different times are well
known. If a painter gels handling his white
lead paints before breakfast, be will be lar
more likely so to imbibe the poison as to
take the painter's cholic, because his stomach
is empty, and the absorbents are active. But
after breakfast, with a vigorous system, be
may labor with far greater hope of impunity.
So we have no doubt it would be found among
those attending yellow fever and cholera pa
tients. They may handle them even when
dying or dead, and so long as the system is
vigorous, feel no evil effects. But if after be
tny fatigued with the watches of the night, the
depressed system is brought in contact with
disease, and copious ablutions be neglected,
it will often absorb the virus. It is on this
account that some hard drinkers have thought
the practice contributed to their safety. But
as all such stimulants must be succeeded by
acorresponding re-action allimes,the habitual
use of suoh things kills twenty where it saves
one. So it was found by VValkef's army in
Bui the poison usually lakes a more subtle
form. Il is chiefly through the •air (hat it is
propagated. In cholera seasons, there is no
liceble an almost total absence ot atone from
the atmosphere where the epidemic prevails,
an ingredient in some way connected with
the presence of electricity, while influenza is
probably owing in part to its excess. Wheth
er these are direct causes, or whether only the
means are letting loose other causes upon the
system, through the iermentation of certain
minute bodies, nfine can say. Carbonio acid
I" wall often aaam to protect typhus fever
But sometimes there will be malaria in en
atmosphere in whiob no chemistry has been
able to detect so far as the presence or the
absence of any unusual element. In the
neighborhood of Charleston, S. C., a malaria
will prevail so marked as to be certain death
to ay stranger sleeping on a plantation lor a
single Eight, and yet those who live there all
the year round enjoy hoalth. All these are
moat certain to be injurious for a few bours
after sundown and a few hours before sunrise.
A hearty meal, by preventing the action of
the absorbents, is one of the best preventives,
and warm woollen ololhing next to the skin
is almost equally necessary. Hence it would
seem that either the lungs or the skin may
imbibe death through a virus so subtle that
no analysis can detect its presence.
Of course whatever poisons may be float
ing in the air will be almost certain to im
pregnate more or lees the water exposed to it.
Often wster will become most obviously the
means of conveying the poison into the sys
tem. In London, the impure water of the
Thamee taken from certain localities, intro
duced cholera and death into many bouses,
while families supplied with water drawn
by another company Ironi a different spot
were scarcely in auy case affected by the
Do poisonous miasmas always act on ibe
same organs primarily, or on different ousel
That is a very important question. In some
cases, such as scarlet fever, it wonld seem as
if the virus was absorbed through the lnngs
into the circulatory system, produoing all its
effects thus. But, in many cases, the first
impression would seem to be made upon the
nervous system. Hence those pains in the
back, and that lassitude and mental languor
which so commonly precede ordinary levsr
attacks. By.l, in cases of cholera, jt rasyTO
regarded'is uncertain which organi are first
affected—indeed, different organs may be in
different eases. Thus, where the poison is
imbibed through water, it may primarily at
tack the stomach and intestines; where in
haled of absorbed through the skin, it may
first affect the blood or the nervous system.
That It does destroy the vitality of lbs blood
with a surprising suddenness, is some cases,
has been olearly shown.
One truth of the first importance ie olearly
demonstrable—that we all pass through infec
tions and miasmas hundreds of limes, where
we are attacked seriously by them onoe; that
usually more is dependent subjectively on
the state of the system tban objectively on
that of tbe presence of miasma, and (bat
when, by temperance, cleanliness end activi
ty, the nervous and digestive systems and
abaorbenta are kept in a perfectly regular and
boalthy slate, liule is usually to be appre
hended from epideraike. But by the general
neglect of any of these in a community, a
miasma may be generated with auoh violence
tbat it may force so entrance into the most
robust and healthy constitution .—Ledger.
