The doors of the galleries had been opened at an early hour, for the admission of ladies introduced by tickets, and they were already crowded when the procession arrived. Eight hundred tickets had been issued, and if the galleries would have held them, there were hundreds if not thousands more, who would have been there to welcome their husbands and brothers, who have enlisted in the good whig cause. After the procession had entered, all the doors of the hall were thrown open to the public, and we hazard nothing in the assertion, that so many persons were nover belore assembled in that place. At a quarter pust 7 o'clock, Juhn C. Park, Vice Preoidpiit of the Whig Club, called the meeting to order, the President, Charles Francis Adams, being absent from the city. After Mr. Ciiai-aian's remarks were concluded, a ,nl ..,11 i'..- I WdWIM.-U U'l... accordingly mounted the rostrum, and was greeted with the most enthusiastic applause; lung-continued shouts, the waving of hats by the men, and of handkerchiefs by the ladies in the galleries, proclaimed the welcome which Boston ever extends to the greatest of her citizens, and marked the interest and pride which Massachusetts never can cease to feel in the uohlest ot her reoreaentatives. It was not for many minutes that the voice of Mr. Webster could he heard; but when silence whs restored, he addressed the meeting as follows:? Gentlemen, Friends, and Fellow Citizens,?Wlum I was invited, some ten or lifteen days ago, to bo present at thil meeting, called for the purpose ol' giving a response tothn nominations to lie made by the National Convention at Baltimore, I accepted the invitation with plea sure, not having then any idea of being at Baltimore myself. But it so happened that afterwards I did attend the Ratifying Convention in that place, and if by tny presence there I gave anr satisfaction to the universal whig mind throughout the country, I am much more than paid for my attendance. (Cheers) I had an opportunity on that occasion of expressing to the representatives ol all the wbigs of the country, my entire and hearty concurrence in the results of the great, wise and patriotic Convention there assembled, from all parts of the land, to select candidates to the two chief others of the Government, lor the support of the whig party. But nevertheless I haye great pleasure in being present here to-night, and in acting on the true theatre of Massachusetts, and before an assembly ol her sous, the same part 1 was willing to perform before an assembly of representatives from the wbigs of all the country (Applause.) Gentlemen, 1 think there can be no doubt that the proceedings of the Baltimore Convention were such as, in both their great results, both do, and ought to gratify the whigs of the whole country (Applause.) In regard to the nomination for the first ollice, the convention had nothing?or, at least, but little?else to do, than to give utterance to the general, 1 may say universal, leeling which had taken possession ot the public mind. It was not necessary for any ono there, neither is it necessary lor me, Here, to enlarge in ine discussion 01 me propriety of that nomination. 1 do not come among you to. night to extol the character of the gentleman who has been *?lectcd aa the whig candidate for President. I have already sai l that the nomination meets my entire and hearty approbation. (Cheers.) I come neither " to bury Ctesar, nor to praise him !" To praise, to commend Henry Clay ! For me, who have spoken so often, here and elsewhere, my opinion of the merits of him whom the whigs have selected as their candidate, without?so far as my knowledge extends?a dissenting voice, for mo to praise him were indeed " Wasteful and r.diculous excess." And as to burying him, gentlemen, however appropriate that may be to those who are his competitors, it is very inappropriate to him. (Great laughter and choering) I concur with cipially sincere gratification, gentlemen, with the nomination for Vice President. (\ppluuse) I hardly dare venture to speak of the gentleman named for this office, because, betides my great respect for him as a public man, besides my hi 'h regard for his public virtues and public services, I cherish a particular, 1 may say an aflectionate, esteem for the loveliness of his private character, for all those virtues which adorn his private life. (Cheers) Gentlemen, our candidates are now before us. They are helore us under auspices of perfect union, so far as I know, and the only question which remains for us to consider is, whether by an effort of ours?n reasonable and judicious effort?we can elect them. With regard to the candidate for Vice President,it lias the entire concurrence of the party. No doubt Massachusetts would have been gratified, il the gentleman whose tisnie she sent to the convention ha t been chosen, and if the good of the causa bad allowed that body, in its conscience and discretion to ?iiii<isf thfi ffotitinman tuVnm V?iu tttnlu hud rn/?r>minoiuloii Hut, as has been remarked, there were several candidates: and for one 1 can only say, that they all were worthy, and that whoever had been selected would have received my hearty support. But I will say further of Mr. Davis, (great cheering) that I havo been long acquainted with him in the public service in Congress, as well when a member of the House of Representatives, as afterwards in the Senate; and it is with great pleasure that I now, as at all times, bear cheerful testimony to the merit of his services. (Great and tremendous applause.) I do not mean, gentlemen, to derogate in the slightest degree from his merits in other respects, when 1 mention two particular subjects in which we feel great interest, and in which we ure greatly indebted to him. And first, a matter in which the people of this Commonwealth feel an especial interest; I mean the just claim of Massachusetts upon the general government, growing out of the war with Ureat Britain. It is now la or '10 years since Mr. Davis mastered this subject in all its bearings, and he has had much to do in carrying our claim through the Senate, till its acknowledgement by that body, as being in accordance with the policy of our government and the principles of law. But there is a higher and more gene ral ground on which he should be esteemed. In my opinion, hardly any man in the country, during the Inst So years, bus done more to protect our home industry, to protect the work of oui citizens, and tho labor of our countrymen, than John Davis. (Cheers.) Both in the House and Senate his conduct was always uniform, his arguments able, his course favorable to the advancement of that cause. And he is as much entitled as any man within my knowledge to the praise of being an able ami zealous linnd to American industry, (Much cheering) I say nothing of the other candidates presented to he Convention. It is enough that the selection was made after lair discussion, and in a friendly spirit. The result was one iu which all good whigs cordially unite, and if Krelinghuyten is not elected on the same 1 ickct with '"lay, if will be becuuse the Whigs have not the power ?winch we all believe they have ? to accomplish the end they have proposed to attain. Now gentleman, >ur candidates being before the people, the question naturally comes up, what are wo to do 1 The field is open ? the career is before us What remains for us to do in orier to accomplish our own wishes and tiie desire of our vhoie party I Gentlemen, the first pledge of our coming success is our own union. A union of purpose, a union 0' .icmiii. Kuril an nun nui onru neiore fxis-.ku since me iur'iiiiiation of Mr. Adams' administration [Hern then was lomu disturbance in the hall, owing to ihe densin with winch the people were [lacked together, mid Mr i'aik naid that if each one of the audience would take care o keep still himself, without regarding his neighbor eery thing would go on pleasantly, and every one would .it aide to hear. Mr. Webster rejoined? ' that, sir, is what 1 believe would tie called ttlf'gorernmmt " After the augh caused by this sally had subsided, Mr W. went on.] Next, gentlemen, to the good omen wc have in this om wn union, is that which is nearly us advantageous for us, though not so good for our adversaries?the notorious tisuniou in their tanks. It is quite certain that the part) apposed to tu is broken ibto fragments, and undecided which way to look. But we may not rely too much on his discord of theirs. They have among them strong principles of cohesion, and we do not know what glue and nitty and plaster may do to bring the party togethei igain. (Laughter.) I am happy to say that during my political life, 1 have known no lime when the great prin inles of the whig party, which I consider the cardinal principle* of good government, were to generAlly re;eiveil by wing* in ail parts of the country as now (Ap lame.) I will allude to hut one of (hasp?a just And rea unable protection of Amerirnn induitry in raising n revt. me i in other word*, a t arid'. (Oreut cheering) Vow ,e.alt men, I feel much respect for the w liigs ot the South mi the nationality ol * mtimmtthey have manifested upon Ins point. I esteem them for bursting the shackle* 01 lo ill |irejudice?, for their broad and general feeling lor the interests of the whole country, which doc* them infinib honor and grea'ly juomotes our Advantages. I honor .itch men us Berrien, (cheers,) Mangum, (cheers ) Archer, (cheer*,) and others, who, living in a very different state it society lrom ours?born mid luel in an atmosphere, shall 1 say perfumed with the odor of different doctiines ip..m ilin.n ivliieii we clii risli have arkno wledired. And igree I to, the grout doctrine that iiroti ction to the labor ol iiecountry it. a political axiom of thehighest importance Uat I will not dilate upon tin* topic, because a just appro ijtion of this doctrine in now rapidly upending over all the land?from exit to wi lt, from north to aouth; fieeaase I feel that all attempts to agitate the subject, to reverie the general sentiment upon it, will utterly fail; and her nine I entertain the confident hope, may I not say belief, that die preaent Congress, when it shall nee fit to rile, will leovc the subject undUturhed. Gentlemen, the men we have, selected a* otir candidates, are before the people.? I'heir names we have nub.nittnd to the public foraupport >r rejection. And what in it that it hccomea ua to do as lilinteraited and patriotic members of this great confederacy?

Who is there at the present day that 'does not regard it as the great lever of the hummi mind For my sell, 1 honor the press. 1 honor ell its honest and conscientious conductors. I regard it as one of society's greatest agents lor good or for evil. It addresses mankind daily. Not u valloy nor a mountain side, not a village nor u hamlet, not a houie nor a man, hut has its happiness, its knowledge, its moral sentiment, I may say, more or less directed by the press. And while I would not diminish the re4|a>usibility mating upon its conductors, I am willing to accord to their duties, wtdl performed, my t ntiie meed ol approbation. I wish to see no diminution in the zeal, no digging in the anient exhortation of the Whig press of the country, i may say that I wish to see even more argument, more reason, more lutional persuasion in itscolumns; because 1 do believe, and I caudidty avow mv nniniou. that mnnv honaet mun in tlm nnnnfrv punk themselves among our opponent through ignorance, or misrepresentation of our principles Our gi oat want has bt en to roacb tho mind?to touch the intellect of these, Hud this oan best be. done through a well-regulated press. My purpose now, as 1 have said, is to olfur some lew practical suggestions on the state of our countrv and party.? One leading fact which addresses itself to ttio mind in the connection I have been pursuing, is that in our NewKnglend, there are not only many cities, towns and villages, which are the centre oi general information, hut many hamlets removed from the sphere of its influence, i submit it to ercry man at ull acquainted with the country, whether this is not true. In the cities and hirge towns, where papers are daily printed, and received by every mail from all quaittrs of the country: where one mail meets another, and interchange! intelligence with his neighbor every hour, there you will find lorty-tive out of every fifty of such cities, towns and villages, to he Whigs. (Luud cheers ) iiut along the mountain sides, in the remote glens and recesses of civilization, where a man has access to, and reads but one newspaper, adhering to one school ot politics, what can we expect from such 11 man but entire acquiescence in that school, and determined aversion to all others? Now ,my friends, 1 say here, as I said at Baltimore, we must make ourselves missionaries. We must carry light into dark, places. (Cheers.) We must raise our voices ami expound our principles ; we must diffuse knowledge among th ise who are not so favored as ourselves. And lor this end, there is no more advantageous means than public uddresses and meetings, throughout the whole country. It is of the highest imjiortance to meet men in thairown localities; because an invitution to attend a public address will always attract more or less of those opposed in sentiment to the speaker, and there is ever some chance, that tiuth spoken, or new views presented, io?y change sucli hearers from their erroneous to a correct opinion. And, therefore, I say that it is not sufficient lor us to only hold great conventions hut we must go abroad amongst the people ; we must endeavor to convince the unconvinced ; to argue conclusively and persuasively against error ; r.nd to bring our neighbors into an adhe ruico to tnosc great principle* ol government and political action, an which we think the preservation of the country and constitution depend. (Applouse.) Gentlemen, there is a power in truth?which under the most inauspicious circumstances, tinally works itself out, and makes itself acknowledged. Fellow citizens, in my opinion, the great principles of the Federal Constitution, and the real interests of the country received a shock sixteen years ago, in the election ot Goneral Jackson to the Prasidency, lrom which it is hut just recovering (Great cheering.) It Is hardly too much to say that he caused a revolution?(renewed applause) ? I do not meuu in the strict sense of the won!?but |I do mean to say that hy the strength of his determination, by the force of his iron will, which would submit to no counsel, by the principles he carried into his cabinet, by the opinions to which he adhered, and on which he acted - pretty much in defiance of law and the constitution? he did much to unhinge the liberty and destroy the wellbeing of the ltepublic. His doctrines tended directly to the subversion of all Iree^ government He pronounced distinctly that lie was the only representative ol the whole American people. Where did he learn that doctrine ?? The constitution speaks of 110 sole representative ot the people?it speuks of the President as no representative at all. The people choose their representatives themselves hy states and in districts ; our whole fabric of government is a limited system, and when any one man takes it upon himself to say he is the whole representation of the people, he means just what General Jackson del. And what did he mean t I will not say he did not mean to govern well- as he understood the matter?(laughter)?but be meant to govern at any rate. No will but his own should have any effect. This was his idea, and while the constitution speaks of checks, and balances, liis idea, his understanding was that his single department ol government embraced and absorbed all others. (Plaudits.) I think the country is now rettllnlng lrom this doctrine. Certainly ,110 one now pretends to walk in the footstep* of Gen. Jackson, with his own gigantic strides?(laughter and cheers,)?and 1 therefore incline to the belief, that we aro coming back to a just view of the various relations of government, and to a reasonable consideration ot ts powcis and duties.

Friday morning, at eight o'clock, the Convention again met ut the Concert ilooms, -IOt? Broadway, for the purpose of coming to a vote on the famous resolutions lor h dissolution of the Union. The members attending were fewer than on the even-' ing previous, und certainly much less interest was | evinced than the hold and reckless spirit und intent j of the proposition under discussion might be ex-1 pectcd to attract, if not through sympathy, at leust from curiosity. Mr. Garrison, the President, stated the older of the dev. ebserving that several considerations made it desirutile that they proceed to business, and conduct It with intelligence and expedition. Mr. Van Ransai.f.r moved that 11 o'olock he tho hour of taking the vote on tho resolutions. Agreed to. Mr. l.isov arose, not as an advocate, but to state simply what were his own feelings uud that of the country towsrds the question Wcloro them They weio waiting for a declaration of sentiment from the Society they wore warmly in favor of it,and he. believed that theyshould adopt the revolutions and not wait for the tnovumeut to coine from any other ipiarter. Some other persons having arisen to speak, Mr. Will r?: said there wus no question before the meeting. Mr. Clarr moved the following resolution : Whereas, no institution is more hostile to tho AntiSUverv mevomont, than the professedly Christian Church in this country ; and, whereas, from her high promises, prominent uositinu, her deep hold upon the olfactions or the people awl her immense influence, she ought to be first among the foremost in tho ranks of freedom ; and. whereas, by continuing a connexion with so base an institution, wo. do surround the system of American slavery with holy sanctions, and entrench it behind religious billwarks t therefore, Unsolved, That it is the deliberate opinion ot this Society that it is the duty of every Abolitionist to withdraw entircdy from the sup|>ort of said institution, anil to hold her up before the people as hypocritical in profession, infamous in piactico, and as having usurped the tiume of Christian Church, and as being one of the greatest obstacles in (be way to immediate abolition. Mr. Garrison said that before any discussion arose en this motion, lie wished to observe that Mr.Chili.'s was there with the annual repot t, and it would he well to hear a part of it, or tho whole, at they might think proper Mr. E. J 1'oKTrn objec.ed to the reading of the re|>ort, a< the time wai ahort. Mr. CHit-na was anxious that they ahould hear it, for which neurly mi hour would be requisite. There wua u part of it relating to J ('. Calhoun'* defence of slavery, which he would wi*h them to hear. That infamoua dolelice relied principally on the last population tables, and .1 more infamous or erroneous one did not exist. When at Washington lately, he examined the subject; and tound that while the deaf, the dumb, the lame, uud tho blind, as well as idiots and mudtnen, cripples and lunatics, were comprised in the returns, not u single colored man was on the li*t. Tho treaty ot Tesns was rested by Cultiwmi principally on these returns, most disgracefully and falsely ; nd showed that slavery was not content to turn people to deal, blind and idiots, but it must, fictitiously, create them by some infernal magic in the system (Laughter atid applause ) Mr. Earn, iu connection w Itli the vending of the report, which was then under consideration, found fault with the conduct of Mr f'hihls in his capacity of Editor of the " Standard," the Society's organ. The accusation though not brought in u dt finite form, was based upon a certain differ' nee of opinion 011 politics, as well as some topic intimately connected with the proceedings of the nboli tion cause. Mr. Child* dvlonded him. elf with tarn; ftuid, andudry humor which caused some laughter. The subject was drorqied, and then referred to u select committee to dispose of it as they thaught pioper The PnrsinrxT th> 11 put the question on Mr. Clapp's re solution, 'which, after a few lemarks from Mr. Deusenbury, was adopted. Mr. Qsrrisux drew the attention of the Convention to me conduct oi me unpust Triennial Convention lately held in Philadelphia, which wai at direct lum: with the Abolitionist body. Their proceedings at the previous Baltimore Convention, he said, were very well remem bereti, on wicked and <-'isgraccfiil;but the resolution passed at Philadelphia, il less infuriated and audacious, was not loss wicked. The resolution was to thia i fleet:? " Resolved, That while we disclaim all connection with slavery ot anti-slavery, we hold ourselves free to take uny course which we may think proper in a Christian spirit." There it was (said Mr. U.) passed by the Bapti?t Convention, three-fourths composed ol clergymen from the T.astern States, and professing in the strongest way their opposition to slavery before they went there. It wus worth while to remember the conduct nt the Baltimore Convention. After they had passed a resolution which repudiated sympathy with the slave, and the Slitherings of humanity, they sung the h) mn beginning "ho, wimt an interesting sight, Are brethren who agu e." (Laughter.) At Philadelphia, immediately ? recurrence ot the same act of blasphemy ami villtuiy. llev. Mr. Davis of New York moved that after the gratify int; wmirmm 17 i"r I /I< 1/ ^ <11111 a H nir ,| ff'i*Dn o/' priryrr?(there wax a strong expression of horror and detestation here,orul cries of "On!

They sung, " utter thil gratifying settlement of the question," " Praise Oodlrom whom all blessing* (low !" (Some laughter nnd strong feeling.) .Mr. O. read some remarks made hy Dev. Mr. Culver of Ohio, a lluptlst clergyman, and contrasted tiiem with those ol a siaveholding minister, showing that they were worse?liss lioeral nnd far more disgraceful and ty ran real. Mr. I'ttit.t.irR moved the following rerolution :? Heaolvnd, That we entirely disprove ot the recent letters ol <\?sii s M. Ci.iv, because while it tells us thnt it is l ight for us to vote for a sinner to conrm t sin ?s our spe eial agent, merely because the sinner himself mnv no' have seen the sin in tha light in which we see it?thus making the eyri ol thocandidato, instead of those of the voter, the guide of the voter's action* ; ami because tin" it will be right for a voter for a slave holder at the next election hut wrong ever after ; propositions that wo consi ler strongly at war with not only sound morality but also with practical common sense.'" A long discussion arose on the resolution. Mr. ( 'iiii.ns thought it was hard to condemn a man's bad actions and not credit him with his good ones, lie was against the resolution. ,?ir wnun nopea mey wuuia noi coniounu ai i lay Willi II. l iny , but ii tliey made any remarks about II Clay ho hoped they would call him hy hit ri((ht name. Mr. Ci.?rr w as against the discussion of the individual opinions of I lay or Van Huron then; let thcin stick to the (trout principles they were contending for. Mr. Van I(?n??i?r thought that the letter of Clay as well n* that of Van Durrn had a northern Hide ami a southern side ; thf y were both fory. (Loud laughter ) He *p proved of Caseins M. < Uy 's letter, arid was opposed to the others Mr. Earn, looked with suspicion on any approbation of a man who did u little good and a threat deal of evil. Mr. (Ihilix agoin got tip. hut the cries of "question, question, sit down, order, chair, chair," stopped his ptogress for some mom-'nts. At length he herame audible In wanted to giveold Harry his due (Criea of " what Harry? Harry the saint, or Many the devil," and much laughter) Yes, he would givu every nian his due, al though there was an old saving "Hive every man hi* lu.t and who would esca|ie whipping." Perha| * it would lie well for the society to tulto earu ol themselves ? (Laughter ) The diseusslon proceeded with great spirit, and turned principally upon the iact oi Mr. Clay having emancipated his sla??s. Mr Ksm. and Mr. Fostf? strongly animadverted or, the life, character, and public career ol Clay, who had not a friend to defend him h it Mr, ( hiljt, and he seemed to do it more for sake of the fnn than t?i? man. Mr. Btiows introduced an old lady from Kentucky, w lie stooJ Up und said that her son,who was a school fellotv ol vtr Clay's, had learned f oin himself that the slaves who were released were not hi*, hut his mothei's. Mr. (fi i.Ncr moved that the whole olfair bo left on the fable. Carried. The President put the two resolutions of Mr. Phillips which reflected on J. U Adams'conduct in relation to slavery. Mr. Bcrrt/m spoke warmly in his defence. It was no reason (hat he should he attacked because he did not come Hp to their mark. He alluded to hit report, in which In1 lenounced slavery at a violation ot the laws of Mod and man. which was more than Clay or t'nlhaun would ilo Dr. Smith supported Mr. Bnll'um's views at acme lenjjtii, when Mr. Van asked, with snnio warmth, if that diarits<lon on individuals was in order, lie felt? Thel'iiKSms.nt said,that as lus name had hecn mentioned, and that as his conduct had been alluded to, he would de ride it w us in order, to give them the advantuge of going on ? (Latig'-ter.) Mr. C i. see thought t hat if some step w a^ not taken to end the debute, it might continue to the coming 01 tliu Jotv* ? (laughter)--lie moved to leave it on the table. Passed. As tho 1 orio I had now arrived for taking the vote* on ;hc 111 Irons an<l resolutions, othei hits nm sum ended. They wore both adopted. some other resolutions being added not much differing (rotn the first. Mr. I.ohimi entered the following protest, which V as signed by two or three other members : The undersigned, members of the American AntiSlavery Society, protest against so much of the action of the present annual meeting 11s undertake* to prescribe to its members the abstaining fiom voting, and Irom every other form of political action under the government, ns an Anti-Slavery dn y j because they view the moral tr-t thus set up ns intolerant and proserlptivr in its spirit and tendency, and ns narrowing the Anti Slavery platform ; and because, while they regard the prescribed course of action as notrrquind bv enlightened conscience, they regard the prop)?ition as impracticable, and as calculated jimtiy to impair the character an 1 influence of this aoeii ty.

A good deal of interest was evinced to see the result of the strong resolutions proposed for adoption. 'lhe Prksidknt called the attention of the meeting to the disposal of the amendments of Messrs. Earl and White, which were, after some observations. Mr Tanner arose?He had heard w ith delight the speeches of both parties, and was convinced j that hoth sides were desirous lor the speedy aboli- | tion of slavery. However he might differ with j others, he would impeach the motives of no rn. n, : but would strive to get at, and stick to, the point, j which was to find out what step duty |*oiiited out on the question. It was tried helore by thent in j many torms, but essentially this: " freedom from slavery or not." It was impossible to vote under ; the government without sanctioning slavery, lie hoped his anti-slavery brethren would act unani- ! mously in abstaining to vote, seeing it must come ( to this at last. There was no fear that they were j about to retard the movement?nothing could re-j tard the movement of truth and standing up for i principle independent of consequences?(applause) . ?let consequences take cure of themselves. (Loud , cheers.) h was made out that the government of j the United States was u slave-holding government 1 and the American Anti-Slavery Society would not support it, whoever must. (Warm and continued marks of approbation.) Mr. Brown, a colored citizen ol Buff alo, then ascended the platform. He arose only to give his assent to the resolutions. He spoke of the corruption ol the government?of its being a slave-holding government, and of the South relying on the aid of the North, nnd getting it to support slavery, us well known. The slavpliolding States were against anything teniling to dissolution. They would strain eveiy point to keep together; and Mr. Wise, on the lloor of the Congress, said?" I am done waging war against anti-slavery petitions: the people ei the North well know how loud; all 1 wantot tlieni is to act up to the spirit of the Constitution." Well, if slavery was in the Constitution, the sooner they got rid of it the better. (Cheers.)

(Laughter.) At last an Irish boy, who did not care, paid one day, wnen told the old story, " Saw away." (Loud laughter.) lie said thut old Massachusetts on scutie occasion, like the hoy, saw through the Southerner, anil had said "Dissolve away," alter which there was no further talk about it. (Cheers.) He told a long story about a slave who had been born so, hut had contrived to-escape, , who was arrested in Illinois, carried back to cap- 1 tivity, and the very first book that counsel opened to prove his slavery was the Constitution of the United States; Iroin that he made out the case, and. but for that Constitution, would have g<>t i to the land o< liberty.

It it was inconsistent for Ami Slavery men to support that constitution, let them tear it down, (cheers) and rear upon its iuiiih an altar to liberty. (Prolonged cheers.) Why should lie not appear before them against slavery, who had brothers and sisters slaves?who had an aged moth- j er with the chains of slavery clanking on her neck? The sooner they got rid of it the better. They had I nothing to do ,wuh consequences; jet them do i right and consequences follow. The time was come lor it, and if they passed those resolutions n woujd be a rallying point for all friends, and they wouid know what they were about. (Cheers.) ? The world was in agitation for freedom. Ireland was demanding it, fearless of results, and it wnsfor them to let results take cure of themselves; they had nothing to do with it. (Cheers.) Mr. Van, another colored man, rose to correct n phrase that hud fallen from the last speaker It was not their wish to tear anything down. They wanted to secure the abolition of slavery peaceably, and were there to Lear testimony against it; it was for those to tear down who believed in it ; they would not. Mr. < Jabrison next arose. Ifc felt this was one o| the greatest and most important enris in the history 1 of society?a momentous period in the history of the country. The sin ol slavery was upon them ; but 1 it was yet a problem whether < hid in his mercy 1 would lead them on to repentance, and suspend Ins ! judgments that hung over the country, or dash it , in pieces liko a potter's vessel. Tliey hud trodden on the rights of humanity ; they find been, and I th?'ir fathers, near 200 years in the slave trade, and it had waxed worse and worse tu iniquity. What 1 were the tidings at that moment from a sister i ity, were they tidings of brotlrarly love! No, th< ' bloody tidings of civil war were in their ears. The inhabitants of Philadelphia were at that moment , in nrma ?f?ninst eaeli other, and the lliilne of the in- I cendiitry reddened the sky.

No Ireemen coulil aervu two nmktsrs, bad the simple question win, " could tyrants and Ireemen legislate tog.tlier lor a free people J" It waa a* impossible ;i? that two and two made nine. (Cheers.) Therefore, the people should blot ,cut Klavcry or slaveholder*, or recognize it boldly. It could not ho doubted that their fathers made provision lor slavery, and were ready to givo np the slave to hi* mu ter, und so compromise the principle* of American independence ; and what were they to ray of those citizens u ho huhl^liHt the Constitution never meant to give power or favor to the slaveholder To those who say so, who hold that it can bo abolished consistently with the Constitution, 1 will say that 1 have little respect lor tlnir intelligence, and less lor their honesty The inllueuco of slavs ry,like a nightman ,was over the nation. There was a law which enabled a m?n to come into thnt Hall to icize your 1'resideiit, or any theie, to carry him us a slave to the Koutli, uud compel him to prove his liaedom he fore he obtained his litierty.

Mr. Umuihon continued?" Well, wc do not say you arc not to take arms." Oh! how easy it was to say the slaves do not resist ; lie would not be surprised to hear non-resistance preached by certain parlies, but thut Irom whence it came wns the quarter from which he least expected (Cheers ) I,et no descendant of their revolution!!! y sires cry down ait appeal to arms. He thanked God thnt no Mood had been shed thus lur. They had waited too long. They rhould have had abolition teats ago.

Air. G. ended amidst mttrb cheering and applause. D.
