Yet nevertheless there wrf many sympathizer* with the republican* 1 her*, though their personal safety demanded their silence. The dignity and respectability of labor was a more important subject to them than the price of cotton or the execution of the fugitive slave law. The philosophy of Shylock's observation that b*s bouse waa token with the props that supported (t, and his IItaken with his means or living, applied precisely to thlfe matter; for your labor urn* degraded when the means wberebv you live wer? degraded. and the laborer also followed In the same descent If the freeman did the work of the slave, and the alavs that of the freeman, they were equals to the extent of the^r occupation. The distance between the two conditions must be overcome. and it wss the part of the freeman to do it. The physical and mental chains of the slave pre. vrrura h]| advance; and in closing up the distance beiw?*n, the freeman adviaed and consented to Uft own degradation and that of his family and friends It wa* not to be believed that so large a number of our people as are at the South uninterested In the perpetration of ne^ro slavery, would be unanimous in support of a system which strikes at the root of their own liberties If the standard if Ameiicnn citizenship bad sunk so low, then the lamb, as an emblem of Innocence, should be displaced, and tn its stead enthroned an American citizen The greatest argument In support of the rfinuhlirjlD nnaitinn *a?as K..- I .-"tic* ? umrict or Columbia Advertisements to be inserted in the Baltimobk Square received at and forwarded from Tub 9tii Office. Mar rise, or thi rkribuca* Association Last lirtiiiN Oi no occasion baa the regular weekly meetiaff of tbe Republican Aasociation of this eftv beea more largely attended, or greater mtbnataam manifested. than waa the caae last evening. After the transaction of the customary ^preliminary business, tbe Glee Club, composed of oembers of tbe Association, sung in a spirited manner aome of tbe choicest republican anthem*; after wb*ch. It was announced that Mr Benj F. - ? * ? ? " iiw, ?uu waa piescai, wooia aaaress uc Nr. Benjamin F TJVlIklns. of Va., waa introduced, and proceeded to addreaa tbe Association He alluded to the fact that too little attention bad bero paid. In the contest between parties, to tbe degradation of free labor consequent upon tbe competition in the same branches between that class of laborers and slaves Tbe recorded expressions of human-hearted and liberal-minded statesmen snd philosophers In every age hart pokrn with a mighty voice for tbe dignity of laboe. Common aenae. moral feeling, humanity and retijrlqp recognized and approved these expressions. and no man or party could obliterate tb* record. Tbr statement might mm atrange, (tbe speaker aid.) hut waa not leas true, that nine-tenths of tbe noa^tavebotder* of tbe t*ooth occupied tbe same ground upon the question of free labor aa tbe revtnblfcah p<*rty. They would deny It possibly, hut tbe drnlal would only prove tbst they did not understand the matter properly. Msny of tbem believed the repabllcsna to be rank abolitionists, J ? - ? ^ l- ll *1M UCIC UUMlllirU. that contact with the slave, In a condition of equality, would degenerate and lsssen patriotic feeling; f?r the revolutionary sires of these docile men would never have been capable of a submission so degrading Opposition by them to a lm oKjeetlonable principle made our toil to reek with the blood of heroes. Here waa the "irrepressible conflict" about wtieh ao much bad been said. If vou make the slave and tbe free work together, you must strike the shackles from tbe one. or bind the limbs of tbe other. There was no truth in the idea tbat an untravimable spirit in man would force him to r:sa anperlor to the accidents of condition?In hofrely phrase, that one mav handle pitch and reiraln undefiled. or be a modern democrat and retail bia parity of conscience. For it was just at this very point of contact tbat the southern rich and the southern poor found their nearest connection?tbe highest point the slave mayattain in the rale of humanity, (a condition of equality to the free.) and the lowrst at which a free man may eiut, (his connection with the slave, and reduction in all but tbe name of bandage to that level ) The limbs and the sp.rlcs of free white men was not a it evil upon which slavery should trail Its poisonous aiid obscene clusters. Whoever aided in any manner In the perpetuation ot a system fraught with tueh danger to themselves were diina 10 wetr grestest blessing They were attempting to kindle a beacon of liberty at the flames proceeding from the sbrine of tbat divinity which tn-tr own Incendiary hand* haw rendered a wreck and a rain. There ww a result growing out of this conflict between two antagonistic elements. which required an allusion Many aoutheru rue< foaaics. 1 cellos arnsiblv the estimation in which they were held by tbelr more fortunate fellow-citizens, determined to nvc their sons from the obloquy attaching to their position, by thrusting them Into the "learned professions,'' md tke result was that many a young man who would have made a capital carpenter, in admirable blacksmith, or a v?-rv capable hod carrier, drag out a wsarv existence by the pursuit of a profession for which tLeir education and their mental capacity renders them unit Trades, and learned professions ss we!), nre thns degraded in the standard of their superiority, by admitting incompetent persons,who can briug to their pursuits nothing but reproach. It was sometimes asked if the republican party was not opposed to slavery, why did all of their speeches binge upon that question The spesker astd that they serre opposed to the extension of slavery over another acre of territory bow free; bat it was also a part of their doctrine tbat tbe HtaUs had sn entire control over the mutter in Ihetr own limits The general argument in favor ofOkt dignity of lelmr. and desiring Its separation from competition with slaves, was not an exposition of what we wished to do for ourselves, so nm' h as marking out the course we would tnve those pursue who have the couUol of the matter ?larery would exltt at the South as loug at it wu profitable, and to longer.

I then went where they were and told Mra B that the wax resisting tbe law by not tflv1*K him np. She aald ahe bad not seen Stafford since morning, and that be was not there, and wanted to know If she coald bring him np to the court house in half an hour. I told her she was Injuring her house She aaked if I did not want to kidnap the negro. (Before thia I heard Mr. Wise tell her be had a warrant to arrest Stafford.) I Md her we could go withont him. I referred her to (?leat. Thomas She then held, with blm, Thomas, a private conversation, tbe purport of wbicfa i do not know Judge Granger came where we were, and asked if we were officers, and !f we bad authority to make the arrest We told h'm we were office*, and had the authority Mr. Granger promised to see Mrs. B , and started for to at purpose. He informed her she was violating the law. as we were officer*, and had authority to arrest tbe negro. I then informed Mrs. B we were going to take Stafford before Jndge Merrick. After this conversation Mrs. B said that Lieut Thomas would bring "he boy. Mr. Wise and Lieut. Thomas started for the boy. I then went out of the front door, and wben 1 got down the steps, I saw Wise and Thomas coming out of the house with Stafford in custody.

The counsel for defense asked for the production of said power, also for the writ under which the arrest was made. The witness refused to produce them, although both the justices demanded them. J. A Wis$, sworn ?I apprehended Stafford Payne on a warrant issued uy Justice Glberson. When I received the warrant I went to the Washington House in company with Mr. Gittings, looked around and did not see Payne. 1 went to where Mrs B was carving. She said the boy had sued for bis freedom, and the case would not come up until October i asked her to produce the man, and 1 would take bim to the City Hall, and wonld wait until she was ready to accompany him. Some words ensued, when Judge Granger advised her to produce the man Lieut Thomas being present, said that be would bring the man tip He told her that he must be taken to the Court-bouae I then went with the Lieutenant to a foom where he called for Stafford. He came out promptly aud was taken before Judge Merrick* when he was remanded. At no time during our conversation was Mrs B. out of our presence. 1 believe that if Mrs B had not been influenced by others, she would not have acted so During tbis tiiue the servants had access to and from Mrs. B to the lower rooms Dont know where the warrant is or what has become of it. The warrant was issued at the instance and upon the oatb of Mi. Gittinus D<>n't know where tbe power of attorney is.

I informed Mra B. about the 1st of April that Mra Thompson would hereafter expect eight instead of seven dollars per month I don't know who made the oath to arrest Stafford; 1 know that Stafford had filed a suit I for freedom before his arrest. Frank Smith, of Alexandria, advised Mrs T. to make the oatb for his arrest as a fugitive. I received a power of attorn?y from Mra. T. to have Stafford arrtsled under the fugitive-slave law, but 1 returned it to her The last receipt waa in May. 1 believe abr hid entered into negotiation, before the lat day of August, for tbe sale of Stafford. This witness declined to give the name of the person to whom the slave Stafford was to be sold by Mrs. T. The power of attorney was after the 1st of August. Oon't know that any money was passed before his rendition to Mrs. Thompson. 1 here was a negotiation for bis sale three years ago, and subsequently in July.

I Bill ahdEvbbitt Clcb ?Theretular wtekl] meeting of the Bell and Everett Club, waa hell last night at the rooms of the association, Thorn'i BulMine. the President, Mr Kennedy, in th? rbair. The attendance was very numerous and U?e meeting enthusiastic. Col. Tayloe, late President of the Club, wa present and entertained the meeting with th result of his observations of the political condition of various states through which he has recentlv traveled. Having alluded to the cauaes wbicn had led to the formation of the club here, and the somewhat darkened peospect of the lTnion and Constitution party at that tune, he went on to jrive in contrast the changes daily taking place all over the country in favor of the election of the candidates of the Union party. Then all was dirk, but now light Illumines the whole political hemisphere, and the prospect for Bell and Everett irrows dailv more hrlcrht Col. Tayloe went on to review briefly a late speech of Gov. 8?ward at Detroit, arguing that from the sentiments expressed by the great abolition leader h? believes that he has left New York all right for Lincoln, but feels serious doubts about the West. Tbe speaker thought the New York Senator had left an enemy in the rear; that tbe abolition hosts of the State of New York are distracted and disorganized among themselves; that thousands of its supporters are becoming alarmed at tbe condition of the country, and will be found on tbe side of the Union in November next Tbe speaker said that when Bell and Everett were nominated, the democrats, In the 4bundance, of their generosity, had conceded to the Union party one State, (Maryland,) and only one. The Union party, with then some appearance of truth, agreed that Breckinridge would carry South Carolina; but since Breckinridge ha< made a speech, in which be advocate* the perpetuity of this Union, he has deeply imperilled hlscbances in that State. Mr Bell was the only man in the South who led off In opposition to the Kansas and Nebraska bill, and he was sustained by (ieji Houston, who bad lately written a letter in favor of the Union and tbe Constitution, snd the enforcement of the laws. Doubtless with his mighty Influence he would aid the cause of the Union party in far-off Texas. The speaker then went on to sum upthevsrious States which, in bis opinion, based upon information received from reliable sources, will cast their votes for the Union candidates in November; after which he reviewed briefly the qualiticatioiis of the variuua Presidential candidates, and the principles which they professed to advocate. From this subject be passed In review the workings of the democratic party from the days of Madison down to the Dresent time, and closed bv a peep at the effects which would follow upou the elevation of the sectional candidate to the chair of state. Mr. Webb here announced that the Executive Committee had accepted Invitations to attend mass meetings?one in Rockvllle, Md., on the '.'Tth; and another in Alexandria on the *29th instant.
