Download The Annual Report Of The American And Foreign Anti Slavery Society books, Excerpt from The Annual Report of the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society: Presented at New York May 7, 1850, With the Addresses and Resolutions The Tenth Annual Meeting of the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society was held in the Broadway Tabernacle, New York, on Tuesday, May 7th, 1850, at 3 o'clock, P.M. In the absence of the President, the chair was occupied by Vice-President Hon. William Jay. Prayer was offered by Rev. Lewis Woodson, of Pittsburgh, Penn. The Chairman then delivered the following address: Gentlemen of the Society: - In the present fierce competition of Northern politicians for Southern votes, and Northern traders for Southern custom, we have witnessed many rich and precious sacrifices, basely and ignominiously offered on the altar of human bondage. One of the most remarkable incidents in this competition is the pledge given by the Senator from Massachusetts to vote for new facilities in catching and restoring to their prison-house, such of his innocent fellow-men and fellow-countrymen as had, through the providence of God, escaped from it. Before I examine the details of the bill which is to be honored with the support of Daniel Webster, allow me to inquire whence Congress derives the power to legislate on the subject. The power of the Federal Government is limited by the explicit declaration, "The powers not delegated to the United States, nor prohibited to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Hence, if Congress possess the power to fine and imprison us for not hunting a fugitive slave, or for concealing him from his hunters, such power is delegated in the Constitution. Now what are the terms in which this power is delegated? Only the following: "No person held to service or labor in one State, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due." Second Section, Article IV. Not another syllable in reference to fugitive slaves is to be found in the Constitution. If these few lines delegated Congress the power to fine and imprison me for not joining in a slave-hunt, equally does it delegate the power to hang every individual in this room guilty of the same crime.

Download The Annual Report Of The American And Foreign Anti Slavery Society books, Excerpt from The Annual Report of the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society: Presented at New-York, May 6, 1851; With the Addresses and Resolutions Four thousand years have passed. Here was a hardy nation who had scarcely shaken the sand out of their shoes, who had but just dried their garments - no, I for got! They crossed on dry land - they scarcely had found their place in their promised land, while their shoulders were yet sore with the burdens they had borne; theselaws for the slave; now the laws are for the master. Four thousand years ago, courts were established where the slave could go and tell his story; now there is not a court from Mason and Dixon's line to Texas, that will allow a black man, whether bond or free, to Open his lips. This rs the American system of servitude. That was the Hebrew! Are they alike? Do the outrages of American slavery find any countenance in the humanity and leniency of its oft alleged prototype?

Download Annual Report Of The American And Foreign Anti Slavery Society books, Excerpt from Annual Report of the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society: Presented at New York, May 9, 1848, With the Resolutions and Addresses The Annual Meeting of this Society was held in the Broadway Tabernacle, New York, on Tuesday, May 9th, 1848, at 3 o'clock, P. M., Arthur Tappan, President, in the chair. The Rev. Duncan Dunbar, pastor of the church in Macdougal street, New York, then read the 10th Psalm. Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? 2. The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3. For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. 4. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 5. His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. 6. He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. 7. His mouth is full of cursing, and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. 8. He sitteth in the lurking-places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. 9. He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. 10. He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. 11. He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it. 12. Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble. 13. Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, thou wilt not require it. 14. Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. 15. Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none. 16. The Lord is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.

Oberlin Hotbed Of Abolitionism

by J. Brent Morris, Oberlin Hotbed Of Abolitionism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Oberlin Hotbed Of Abolitionism books, By exploring the role of Oberlin--the college and the community--in fighting against slavery and for social equality, J. Brent Morris establishes this "hotbed of abolitionism" as the core of the antislavery movement in the West and as one of the most influential reform groups in antebellum America. As the first college to admit men and women of all races, and with a faculty and community comprised of outspoken abolitionists, Oberlin supported a cadre of activist missionaries devoted to emancipation, even if that was through unconventional methods or via an abandonment of strict ideological consistency. Their philosophy was a color-blind composite of various schools of antislavery thought aimed at supporting the best hope of success. Though historians have embraced Oberlin as a potent symbol of egalitarianism, radicalism, and religious zeal, Morris is the first to portray the complete history behind this iconic antislavery symbol. In this book, Morris shifts the focus of generations of antislavery scholarship from the East and demonstrates that the West's influence was largely responsible for a continuous infusion of radicalism that helped the movement stay true to its most progressive principles.
