SLAVERY PROPAGANDISTS HERE AND
hi a The termination of the State Elections,
has conclusively proven that there are
mote than two hundred thousand voters in
Pennsylvania wha are firm in the princi
ple of opposing all further progress of sla
very, beyond the limits of the present slave
States ; and not only so, but that the prin
ciple of hostility to slavery as well in Penn
sylvania as in the wide spread regions em
braced in the national domain in the West,
the North-west and the South-west, is dai
ly spreading and taking deeper and deep
er root in the minds of the people of all thel
free States and Territories ; and even in
the minds of all good and humane men
and women in the slave States, as is pro
ven by the fact that many persons in the
slave States have dared to oppose slavery
by their words and writings, and to vote a
. gairist the Sacred Institution, at the risk
of losing their lives and property, their
houses and their lands, t heir family abodes
and the domicils of them and their chil
dren; such being the insane and fiendish
fury of the slaveocracy in the slave States,
that some men have been murdered, as in
Baltimore, and others have been compelled
to flee the State, and forsake their families
for expressing opinions, or offering to vote
at the elections in opposition to Slavery, as I
-in Virginia ; whilst other good men, such
as Cassius M. Clay and his friends in Ken
tucky, braving danger and contemning
death, in the cause of freedom and the
right, have gone to the polls armed to the
teeth,giving notice that though they might
fall in the exercise of the rights of freemen,
yet their fall should be marked in the midst
of their fallen enemies.
Slavery has again triumphed through
the forms of the Constitution, with two
thirds of the people of the free States a
gainst it. As to the slave States, we have
no correct means of judging how many of
the voters there would hare voted for free
dom had they been permitted to seat their
votes as they thought proper. But no matt

racy are animated with more boldness
and inspired with new hopes'. In imagi
nation Cuba, Mexico, and Central Ameri
ca already expand the dominions of the
Slaveocrats. With this splendid view of
the future glories of slavery, the southern
presses and politicians have become jubi
lant. Claiming to talce the lead in every
movement hostile to humanity and the
rights of the human race, her Governor
the other day, in his message to the Legis
lature of the Palmetto States, advises the
immediate re opening of the slave trade,
or at latest as soon as the measure can be
carried into effect. The I'almettos will
have many difficulties to encounter in this
business of the slave trade. It is treated
as piracy by the laws of the United States,
France, England, and all the most civilized
nations. But the Palmettos will have yet
a greater difficulty to overcome. This dif
­ arises in Virginia, the mother of
States and Presidents- Virginia claims a
monopoly of the American slave trade and
will no more permit South Carolina to im
port slaves from Africa at $lOO per head,
instead of paying Virginia $lOOO per head
for the same sort of a negro, than South
Carolina would permit her own citizens to
vote at an election for President, for any
other candidate than one pledged to the
most extensive outspreading of slavery in
all the territories of the Union. From
these dilemmas and misfortunes, all the
labors of the Southern fire eaters and Nor
thern democrats, previous to the late elec
tion, has failed-to deliver the alaveocracy ;
.and in this perplexing state of bewilder
ment, the whole body of the slave-drivers

swamps, must undoubtedly hare continu

headed whip, and the auction block of hu
man duties. They have appeared in a
happy time, to help out the arguments and
reasonings of the Democrats, and other be
lievers in the divine origin and holy char
acter of the institution of slavery. These
arguments have been sadly shattered by
Fremont orators and other disbelievers in
the Divine institution. These arguments
now wielded by a pro-slavery press and
ministry, contain in themselves no solid
consistency, being the mere patch-work at
Democratic politicians—being void of truth
litsties and humanity ; they have been
torn into shreds, rags and tatters) by thia
peonies of truth and freedom, again and a
gain. But the position assumed by this
class of slavery propagandists is remarka
ble. They assert that slavery is instituted
by Divine command, and yet, notwithstan
ding this, they profess to '•hate slavery
with all their heart, and with all their soul
they abhor it;"—but can good men and
true believers in divine wisdom HATE any.
.ring which originated in the divine will ?
It seems to us that human bondage was
rather the work of the Devil, than of the
true Deity, and that wicked men, whose
hearts were full of all sorts of foul desires
had invented the story of its Divine Ori•
gin, to cover or garnish their own fiendish
wrongs, wantonly inflicted on their fellow.
men. But how different is the view ta.
ken of this subject by many of the tinder
shepherds of to-day. And as they speak
from the sacred desk, how can any but an
alien to the Commonwealth of Democracy
fail to believe eve* word they say, of the
heaven descended institution, marking ma
ny passages of Scripture, very pertinently.
We will cite one instance of Scriptural
slavery—we believe it is the first case of a
slave, mentioned in the Bible; and let us
mark the moral. It is the case of the Pa
triarch Joseph, seized and sold by his bro 7
thers, just as the brothers of the "first fa
milies" in Virginia, now.a days, manacle
and sell their brothers, aye, and their sis
ters too, of a common parent. The kid
nappers who sold Joseph to the Ishmaelite.s
or Arabian merchants, were just such men
as kidnappers and sellers of their own flesh
and blood, have been from the time of Jo
seph to this day. Void of humanity, cov
etous and revengful, they seized and sold
their brother, dipping his cont in blood,
they brought it to their father. The day
of retribution came, for those wicked men;
and does not the same God that watched
over Joseph, and afterwards planed his
brothers in his power, yet govern all the
world, and all the men who live.
The sale of Joseph by his brothers, is
manifestly a case of extreme antiquity,—
for when Abraham, Joseph's great grand
father was in Egypt, no mention it made
of the Pyramids, of the Sphynx, nor of
any of the great temples ; and the resi
dence of the king seems from the narra
tive to have been in an open court, or ye
ranch's ; besides it is said that in the time
of Abraham, the civilization of Egypt was
but in its infancy ; for there seems to have
been neither law nor custom to restrain the
king, from the exercise of acts which
could only have been perpetrated in a ma- •-•
vious period. why do not our Democra. some sears ago by tlai Girard and l'enn Tee , n•
