Here is a snarl of con- Another reason, which weighs much in my mind rainst this decision in relation to Antonio, is, that . i -it i,., ik.t :r .,,.1, as that in men, were recognizee, in any pan oi uus -tTTitrv. thea there could be no pretence for Spain tn demand, or for us to surrender this or any other person as sucn. a nis was uie grounu lanen oy uie btinh Government in the late correspondence with ours, upon the claim to compensation for southern slaves, who were earned inw uie onusa v est. n-a; Boris br stress of weather, and were there set free bv the courts. As to slaves, bo brought in before the abolition of British slavery, compensation tras admitted to be due, though they did not consent to give up the men and women ; but aa to those broflHit in after that abolition, both restitution and compensation weru emphatically refused. In this -decision our Government has acquiesced ; for we find no recomniendation to prosecute the claim by force Or Oy iraua UI lire mmrut a wis uicagr Nfaw. therefore, if this whole nation were free, there could be no question that Antonio is, and of rirht ought to De, as rree as any man in ic. uui, then, half of our states are slave states, and only half free ! What then ? Is the evil principle to prej rail in even scales, and that too, when the man, whose liberty is in question, is under the guardian care and of the internal laws of a free state ? Is that villanous, and misbegotten fiction -to come in and turn the scale against liberty ? Shall thirteen slave states prevail, contrary to the law of nature and of nations, against liberty, and thirteen free states with that law on their side, not prevail in fa-tor of liberty ? God forbid. At all events, if this must be. let us hear no more from the Cre3sons and the Breckenridjres about the injustice of calling this 'a slave nation. If this be the settled principle, we shall be com pelledto send back enslaved foreigners, be their color or nation what it may, 6o long as the remotest and wickedest state in this Union, and perhaps as long" as Texas itself shall please to be guilty of slavery! But perhaps it will be replied to one branch of my argument, that the reason why salvage was not taken out of Antonio, as being among the effects ' in which the salvors had a property for this purpose, if any body had a property in him, was that by the laws of Connecticut, he could not be sold, and selling him was the only method known to the law, of raising salvage money upon him. The judge says: - .- 'Here. then. I find this claim the claim .of the salvors upon the slaves! hedged about by fixed and known laws, over which it would be impossible for me to-leap. I have heretofore decided in the outset of this case, that these alleged slaves cannot be sold. There is no law of the United States, nor of .the slate of Connecticut, by which title to them can be ffiyen under any decree of this court. The State of Connecticut! Ay, ay ! we thank heaven it was the state of Connecticut ; for when we find iudsres talking so loosely and inconsistently, and deciding so capriciously, we shudder at the thought of what might have been the tate oi au tnesc injured men and littl1 children, if Ruiz and JVIontez had been as cunning in choosing one port, as they were in avoiding- another ! By the judge's own showing, if he had been sjtting in a State where slaves were allowed to be sold, (as many such there be, slaves m a a. a J recaptured irora pirates oy our revenue cuiiers, aim .-sometimes by accident by a national vessel, having heen repeatedly sold, and the money put into the treasury of the State where they were landed, the gov rn-ment of the United States and of that State thus consummating the crime of piracy!) by his own showing, I say, if he had been sitting in judgment in such a state, he would have allowed Antonio to be sold to pay salvage! It was, therefore, the internal and municipal reg ulations of the State of Connecticut by which judge Judtxra found himself 4 hedged about,' and prevented from decreeing the sale of a man in that State ; and if those laws could avail to prevent a man from being told as a slave, why, by' the same reasoning, should they not have availed to prevent his being earned oasa slave r In a word, why should not the mimic ipal laws of an American State, which had exclusive jurisdiction over slavery within her limits, and which has abolished it, come in to prevent Uie recognition of a right in a foreign nation to property in a man, within the jurisdiction of such nee state, just as much as the abolition act of Great Britain could come in to prevent such recognition in her provinces, after slavery was abolished there ? la both cases, it is a question of the supremacy of the municipal law of the country where the pretended slave is landed ; anc we say again, why should not that of Connecticut, on a subject over which she has sovereign power, prevail as well as that of Great Britain, which quoad hoe can have no more power ? If the government or tribunal of the United States can come into one state and take off one man as a slave in a- case not provided for in the Constitution, they may go into another and take off as many as they please If they may enter one state, and make freemen slaves, why may they not enter another, and imk : slaves free? It is a pity indeed, if they are mighty only for mischief! I trust that the committee and counsel, who have) charge of this important case; will not permit Antonio to be hurried off to Cuba as a slave by our government, or the Spanish minister, until the laws of the State of Connecticut, which have been so far respected as to prevent a slare auction in her streets, hall have been fully tried on other points of the case. Why should not a habeas corpus be obtained j from a State Judge in Antonio's case ? Set him free, and then let him go to Cuba, if he. will. Some ftLe States have unwisely excepted persons com ,utUd under the authority of the United States, from the habeas corpus jurisdiction of their own judges. Perhaps Connecticut has done so too; if she has, then of course there can be no relief there, but if be has not, as Massachusetts . has not, then there "mst be relief by that process, speedily and without delay.' Why should we be squeamish about conflicts of jurisdiction, where universal and eternal principles of right are sought to be overthrown in fa-of crime ? Why should a free State be so timid in the bold and reckless in behalf of the bloody system of -uueryr Let the Lonnecticut judges be put to tbeir responsibility, if there is no law of the Stole to take away their jurisdiction. The very fact of the enactment of such a law in other states, if it mean "y thing, proves that without such a law, their jurisdiction in the case would be unquestionable. In &ct, we cannot see why these victims of piracy we been kept in durance vile for half a year, surrounded by a power, which could, and innst, if ap-phed to, relieve them in a day or two. As to the 3(1, who are to be handed over to gov-fcment, to be conveyed to Africa, I would observe t they are undoubtedly at liberty to remain in "jjcwmiy, if they Uiink proper. II is desirable nt they should do so long enough to complete a "jwable education, if all or any of them desire it The government cannot carry theai orT, or keep j as prisoners, if they choose to renounce the wfit, which the law intended to confer on them, T DrOVldinflf frtr imi!no tlmm ItnfL in.

We have transferred to onr columns, from the Emancipator, a letter of CJetsrit Smith on Political Action. It is not necessary tbnt wo ahould aak our readers to .give it a careful perusal; because whatever comes from the pen of that eminent philanthropist, is regarded with interest by abolitionists generally. , . If the object of the letter was to clear up the doubts of abolitionist, respecting the utility of organizing a third political party, it is, inour opinion, a failure. It gives no light whatever upon this subject. We cannot tell where to find Air. Smith. Sometimes he is on one aide, then on .the opposite, and anon on neither side of the question. One moment, we hear him saying, that, if such a party shall be formed by aboli tionists generally, be shall be indeed concerned for the consequences ho shall expect that a host of evils will follow in its train. Next, he approvingly refers to an independent political nomination which was made by abolitionists in his own county, and tells us that it will cause both the whig and democratic par-. tics, in that county, to make suitable nominations in future. Finally, (as if suddenly becoming oblivious to what he had previously uttered, especially in refer ence to the political abolitionism of Madison cjunty,) he confesses that he does not place much reliance on political instrumentalities; in point of fact, few men place less on them.' Nay,' he adds 'Let me but know that the abolitionist has not been guilty of dis honoring his principles by voting against them, and I core, comparatively, little, whether he is in favor of voting between, or over the heads of, the parties or, indeed, whether he votes at all.' It is obvious, that this is a very confused view of the question of political action, and that all that can be said of Mr. Smith's letter is it proves that much can be plausibly urged on all sides of that question. But light is needed, rather than speculation. Our esteemed friend objects to the impeachment of motives, in the discussion of this subject. So do we, any farther than facts will warrant us in so doing But there are times and instances in which such an impeachment is not only justifiable, but proper. For example after reading Elizur Wright's letter to Hen ry B. Stanton, what respect can an honest man entertain for the motives of the writer? Mr. Smith inquires Why have not the abolitionists of Boston or Utica, of Vermont or Connecticut, the right to nominate any or all the candidates for whom they vote ?' Grant that they have the right the admission settles nothing in the present discussion The real question at issue is, what is the bond of an ti-slavery union, and how broad is the platform upon which the friends of humanity may meet and labor together for the overthrow of slavery. 'When I join ed the Anti-Slavery Society," says Mr. Smith, I had as little idea of having disfranchised myself by the connection, as by my connection with the temper ance Bocicty.' All this is very well, but what does it prove as to the expediency or inexpediency of form ing a third political party ? There is no more necessity for declaring a war of extermination against the whig and democratic parties, as such, than -there is against the various religious sects, as such. Now sup pose a project should be started'by certain individuals in our ranks, for forming a distinct abolition sect, and merging the anti-slavery organization into it, in order to insure the speedy downfall of slavery by religious action. Suppose they should declare, that the vari ous sects are too corrupt to be purified, and should rid icule the idea that the Methodist, and Baptist, and other religious denominations, may be so influenced by the foolishness ' of anti-slavery preaching, that they will clear their skirts from the' blood of 'the souls of the poor innocents, who are perishing in si a very. Suppose they should confidently assert, that the moment such a religious standard should be unfurled, all genuine abolitionists in the various sects would rally around it, and in this manner the Church would be purified from her pro-slavery abominations. Suppose, further, that it should be maintained that 'it is a step which abolitionists have always contemplated as one which Providence might force upon us and that an attempt should be made virtually to ostracise all such as resisted such a scheme. What would our bro. Smith say then ? Would it, or would it not, be a departure from the anti-slavery platform ? a violation of tbe spirit of our sacred league ? a procedure which, if persisted in, would be sure to throw our ranks into confusion ? . In our judgment, these cases are analogous at least, sufficiently so to enable us to illustrate the wrongfulness and danger of attempting to make unmitigated hostility to the whig and democratic parties, the test of abolition integrity, politically. The religious sects in the land are as hard-hearted, as corrupt, as servile, on the subject of slavery, as the existing political parties.' They are as perverse In -spirit, o crookctl in policy, as selfish in purpose as are those parties. Hence, a distinct abolition organization to put down the one is as lawful, as proper, as imperatively called fori as t put down the other. As practically carried out, Whiggism and Democracy are' no more hostile to the immediate abolition of slavery, than are Methodism, 'Calvinism, Unitarianism, Universalism. If we must have a new political party to abolish slavery, must we not also have a new religious sect for the same purpose ? Is the necessity greater in one case than it is in the other ? Yet who among abolitionisms is prcpurcd to advocate such a measure? ' As to the right of abolitionists to withdraw from the existing sects, and start a rival one to them all, it is as indisputable as it is to organize themselves into a separate political party. But such a course, we are persuaded, whether pursued politically or religiously, would be productive of serioiu mischief to the anti-slavery cause. Nor is it demanded by any thing in tbe history of that cause. The progress of abolitionism is strong and sure, and by its own inherent power must and will ovcrcomcjgcro long, both Church and State as now organized. This is our faith. Mr. Su:ith appeals to us to say, whether certain views entertained by the editor of tbe Philanthropist respecting a third party, do not broadly conflict with our mode of political action. We reply, that, in republishing the article from the Philanthropist, from which Mr. Smith has taken an extract, we endorsed its excellence as a whole, without intending to make ourselves responsible for every sentiment advanced in it. As a whole, we deemed it exceedingly well-reasoned, and entirely conclusive on the subject of a third party. Certainly, the questiou of a sub-treasury, a national, bank, the tariff, or free trade, baa been made subordinate (and jubtly so) by all consistent abolitionists at the ballot-box, to the one great question of1 Mt-MAK bights ; and if it be just and good to do so in one instance, it is in ten thousand instances by abolitionists generally as well as individually whetb er organized into one party, or voting. irrespective of party names and badges. For it may bo laid down as an axiom, tbat the legislator who will guard well tbe liberties of the people, will not willingly cripple their prosperity. If he is sound on the subject of abolition ism if he will make no compromise with slavery-he may be safely trusted with all matters appertaining to political economy. In voting for an enlightened and conscientious obolitionist to represent us in Congress or the State Legislature, without regarding party names, we should take it for granted that we had directly consulted the highest interests of the people, in a pecuniary as well as moral sense. Mr. Smith misapprehends the argument in the Address of the Board of Managers of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society that political action for the abolition of slavery will not move faster than religious action. It was not intended by this language to deny that, in a moral and spiritual warfare like that of abolitionism, oue shall chase a thousand politiciana. . and two to pat ten thousand to flight '; but only that I religious action must precede political action and that jn proportion to th extent of the former, will be tho growth of the Litter. ' In other words a smalt amount, comparatively, of abolition moral power has been generated, and has produced a salutary effect npen party politicsin the proportion ef one pound of moral power to one cwt. of political action. Now, then, our political success, as abolitionists, depends upon our moral integrity; and it becomes an intelligible proposition, that political action will not move faster than religiouj action. Mr. Smith is sanguine, that, ere one-tenth of the electors in any State have become abolitionists,' none bat tchote abolitionists ' will be nominated by the present political parties fbr the chief magistracy and the legislature; and he says further, that forty thousand, or even twenty thousand of uncompromising abolition voters in the State of New York, if true to the slave at the ballot-box as the needle is to tbe pole, would deter the political parties from ever again nominating pro-slavery candidates in that State i. e. those twenty thousand voters, by holding the balance of power between the parties, would do more for our cause, than one hundred thousand arrayed as a third party. We agree with him in this opinion ; and therefore we marvel the more, that he can be in so embarrassed a state of mind as to tbe expediency of a new political organization. Allusion is made to 'the course adopted by Gar rison and bis friends at tbe late Massachusetts elec tion. That course Mr- Smith does not seem to on dcrstand correctly. We neither voted, nor helped to select an anti-slavery ticket. Some of our friends ex amined the lists of candidates nominated by the wbigs and democrats, and selected from those lists such as professed or were known to be abolitionists ; but they added the names of no other persons to make out a com' plete ticket. The concluding paragraph of Mr. Smith's letter has an air of moral courage and independence, which is excellent in itself, but fbr the display of which there is no occasion. He misinterprets a sound and grave argument, and then, begging the question, goes into an eloquent plea f r change rather than consistency, and pours a torrent of contempt upon human infallibil ity and the pride of consistency. We shall try to no tice this part of the letter on another occasion. We shall only add, that we trust it will not be long be fore our esteemed coadjutor 'will come to some con elusion on the subject of a third party. Annual Meeting: of the State Society. The Eighth Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts A. S. Society was held in this city on .Wednesday and Thursday of last week. No special pains were ta ken to secure a full attendance of delegates and, in consequence of the schism which has broken out in the anti-slavery ranks the pecuniary embarrassments of the times and the alarm which prevails in the country towns, in regard to the existence of the small pox in Boston we anticipated rather a thin meeting But we were very agreeably disappointed. Between three and four hundred names were enrolled as mem bcrs ; and never has there been a more harmonious meeting since the organization of this Society. It presented a beautiful and cheering contrast to the last annual meeting. All the disturbing elements had been removed a sectarian faction colonized and our ranks purified. So many beaming countenances of old and tried friends did we see, that we "missed nobody, notwithstanding the secession from the old society. Among the persons who participated in the discussions of the meeting were J. C. Jackson, Sam uel J. May, Edmund Q,uincy, N. B. Borden, John A. Collins, John Picrpont, Henry Colman,' W. L. Garrison, John Parkman, Prof. Adam of Harvard University, William TLadd, Seth Sprague, Sumner Lincoln, Rodney French, I. Morton, W. Jenkins, John Smith, C. M. Burleigh, S. Palmer, Edwin Thompson, G. Hannafbrd, and G. W. F. Mcllen. The afternoon meeting, on Wednesday, was particularly impressive and affecting having been consecrated to the mem ory of the dead, the departed Follen, Lcsdt and Alvord. The eulogies of Messrs. Quincy, Pierpont and Colman upon the character of Dr. Folle.v, though wholly unpremeditated, were happily conceived and expressed. All the resolutions, respecting these deceased friends of humanity, were adopted by a rising vote. On Wednesday evening, the Society held a public meeting in the Hall of the House of Represen tatives, which was completely filled by a highly at tentive and intelligent audience. The speech of James C. Jackson, on that occasion, was received with strong bursts of applause, and did credit alike to his head and heart. A resolution, deprecating the organization of a third political party, was adopted by a rising vote, unanimously. The most important reso lutions that were adopted, relate to the support of pro-slavery clergymen and churches. Let them be carried out by tbe abolitionists of this country, in the spirit of the Lord's freemen, without any com promise, and their warfare with slavery will soon be terminated. We shall endeavor to give in subsequent numbers, a part of some of the speeches delivered on the occasion, as made by a friend. The Annual Report of the Society, as far as pre pared, was mainly devoted to a consideration of the rise, progr ss, character and design of the new organization; which was shown to be destitute of principle, and unworthy of the countenance of any genuine friend of humanity. It was adopted unanimously. By the Treasurer's Report it appearea, that tbe re ceipts into the treasury of tbe Society during the year, notwithstanding the efforts that have been made to break up the Society, and cut off its resources, and in despite of the pecuniary embarrassments of the country, amounted to about eleven taousana collars: A large subscription was raised at the meeting to defray the expenses of the Society during the present year several individuals giving each a donation of 100, and one friend $200. 1 The weather was stormy and inclement, and the streets in a worse condition fbr walking than wo have ever known them to be ; yet the attendance was large to the close. The meeting adjourned on Thursday evening, at 11 o'clock, situ die. The proceedings may be found in the preceding page. Special Meeting of the American A. S. Society As we anticipated, the special meeting of this So ciety, which was held in New-York city on the loth inst. proved to be a complete failure. Of 71 members whose names were entered on the roll, 44 were from the city of N. Y. ; 7 from Massachusetts ; 1 from N. Hampshire ; 2 from Rhode Island ; 6 from Connecti cut ; 8 from New-Jersey ; 1 from Pennsylvania ; 1 from Ohio. Resolutions were adopted respecting the decease of the lamented Follkh, and the decision of I the Court in favor of liberating the A mis tad prisoners. The result of the meeting was as follows : 1. Resolved, That notwithstanding the organization of the State societies, and the efficient action put forth by them, we are as much aa ever convinced of the necessity and expediency of maintaining tbe national organization, and sustaining its Executive Committee. ti. Resolved, 1 hat the sum of ten thousand dollars is necessary to relieve the Executive Committee from their present liabilities, and sustain their arrangements to the end of the year. And tbat this sum be apportioned amongst the several State societies,' in the fol lowing ratio: - New York, $3000 , $ Anti-Slavery Society, $1350 ?-nn Abolition Society, l250 2j0 Conn. $1800 Vt. 800 R.

' 200 Allowing each Statu to draw on the Executive Com mittee for books, equal to one half of the amouut paid. 3. Resolved, T hat the several State societies be earnestly requested to use all diligence in making the collections and placing the sums designated in the Treasury oi the National Society, or adopt such other plans in conjunction with the Executive Committee aa will relieve the Society from its einlwrrasament. AoiTATr! AoiTaTK ! AcrT ar ! ; We have before us the first number cf an anti-slavery paper just issued i a Cleveland, Ohio, bearing the exciting title of 'The AorraToa. It i published by F. B. Pea-niman,at $2 a year, ' invariably in advance It eon-tains an address to tbe abolitionists of the Western Reserve and counties adjacent, in behalf of tbe Agitator, from the pen of Cb&rlcs Olrott, an earnest and eloquent champion of the slave. We are apprehensive that this paper may injure the circulation of the Philanthropist, which has always languished fbr support. In the opinion of Mr. Olcott, it wiM have a contrary efTcct. It has not been started in a spirit of rivalry to the Philanthropist it is not a new organization affair. On the subject of political action, it takes right ground, and is opposed to tbe formation . of a third political party. , A short experimenr will soon enable its projectors to determine, whether there is anti-slavery spirit and patronage eaongh ia Ohio to swtain it.

Mr. Garrison i Dear Sir The Women's Anti-Slavery Confer ence, composed of delegates from Haverhill, Brad ford, Georgetown, Ahdover, and other towns ia the vicinity, bad their quarterly meeting in Haverhill, on Thursday, tbe 17th inst. at the house of Nathan Web ster, Esq. ; and, notwithstanding the severity of the weather the thermometer ranging 10 degrees below zero an unusually large number was present,' and forty-five enrolled their names as members of the conference. At half past 3, the meeting was organized by the appointment of Mrs. Harris, of II. President, Mrs. Greenleof, of B. Secretary, and Mrs Palmer, of G. Treas. pro tern. On motion, voted, that two from each local society constitute a committee to prepare business fbr the meeting. ' " On motion, the reports from the different local so- ittes was read. They werw -interesting, and highly encouraging. Several of the reports stated that the conference had a salutary influence upon the local societies ; that since its formation, their meetings had bo en much better attended. Greater zeal was manifested, and, in some instances, more membere were added. Among these, was that "of the Juvenile So ciety of Andover, which was peculiarly interesting, from the tender age of many of its members, and the punctuality of their attendance on their meetings, ant! the earnestness with which they labored to raise funds to carry forward the great work which is before us. Some excellent resolutions were offered by Mrs. Greenleafi of Bradford, aad, after some discussion, were adopted. A copy of them, however, has not been received. A letter from Mrs. M. W. Chapman, of Boston, was read ; also one from Hiram Wilson, acknowledging the receipt of five dollar from the last quarterly Conference. On motion, voted, that the aaoney raised at this meeting be sent to Airs. Chapman, to assist in defraying the expense of publishing the first series of Tales, to be issued monthly. Adjourned to half past 6 in the evening.- ., ....... . -Thursday evening, half past 6.. The Conference was called to order, and the following resolutions were offered, and after much discussion, adopted. Whereas recent events have proved, beyond the possibility of doubt, that the north is verily guilty of aiding ana aoetung uie nefarious sc Hemes ot tbe slaveholder, both in procuring and retaining human beings as slaves ; therefore, Resolved, That prejudice against color is the main pillar that supports slavery, im that this prejudice exists at the north as well as at the sooth. Resolved, Tbat this prejudice is anti-republican, anti-christian, or in other words, that it ia ia direct opposition to tbe example of Jesus Christ, and the pre cepts ot tne new Aestamcnt. . Resolved, That it is tbe solemn doty of all abolitionists to use their utmost endeavors "to expel thi monster prejudice from oar hearts, aad th whol af this boasted Christian republic. Resolved, That wa consider all laws making a distinction on accoont of color, as a disgrace to the Statute-Book of this Commonwealth ; therefore, - Resolved, That wa will not cease ta petition the Legislature of this State annually, till all sack laws be repealed. . , Resolved, That we consider the Liberator the most independent paper if not tbe on It independent one in tins coon try, and therefore worthy tbe support of au true lovers ot unerty. Resolved, That Mrs. Ilewes of Haverhill, be a committee to receive the reports of each meeting of the Conference from the Secretary pro' tern, and record them in a book kept fbr that purpose ; also, tbat she send a report of this meeting to the editor of tbe Liberator for publication.
