AMERICAN SWEDEN BOROl AN SOCIETY. Ib< second anniversary of the American Swedenborg ian Printing and Publishing Society was held on Wednes day evening, in the Seventh Day Baptist church.

At 8 o'clock Samuel L Waldo, president of the society, took the chair, and the exercises of the evening com m*nceo with the cboir chauntlng a Hal a ta to y. Mr. Waldo then read iroin the Ho y Sci.piures the 62d chapter ot leiiah, whlob was followed by tlie congre gation joining him in the Lord's Prayer. The choir then sang the 185th selection. The people tbat walked in darkness Have seen a great light; They that dwell in tbe land of the shadow of death, Upon tlem hath the light abined. > or unto us a child is born, Unto us a son is liven. And th ergo vern meat shall be on bis shoulders? And his name shall be called Wonderful Councillor ! Clod the Mighty I The Rev. Mr. Barkkit then addressed the assemblage. He suid:? .About Bve year* ago a small number of per sons assembled in the parlor of tbeir worthy President, lor the purpose of devising means to spread abroad the true light* of the Gospel. It waa suggested that a society be established for tbe purpose of publishing the works ol tbe Emanuel Swedenborgians. The project at first met with many difficulties, but, like the lot of every great and good enterprlie? like gold, it stood the test, o' the fire. It spoke but little good of any cause, if all men thoueht gooa of it. *? Wos unto you," asith the Lord, "if all men think well of you.'' The society, by God's kindness, ha* steadily increased in strength, power rnd favor among tbe people. More than 13,( 00 volumes had been published by tbe society during tbe past year, at a cost of $2,t>&6. The sum of )1,&00 bad been expended in stereotype plates, which was three timet the amount expended last year ? thus showing that tbe elTorta of the society have not been in vain; tbat they have been rewarded by converts there waa no doubt; and he hoped it would steadily increase, until its religious principles would be spread all over the va<t country. True religion waa not found among tbe church goers of the present age, or in the Iialls of the legislature. All was in darkness. There was a grevt dearth of religious principles in our land, which would yet shake the very foundations of society to its centre. If religious principles were not properly appreciated, all other principle* would soon fall to the ground. There was reason to believe that a vast amount of infllellty lurked in the churches. It was true, m ist persons went to 'church, but they did not sincerely be lieve in the hoiy Scriptures that ought to guide them in all tbeir thonght* and action* There was, no doubt, a tendency to treat tbe Bible lightly ever * nee the refor mation. Another came to which may be attributed the lack of faith in divinity is tbe number of religious sects tbat have, from time to time sprang up, and the nun qer of ccmmentarles made upsn the Bible by the clergy of thess sects. They looked upon the Bible as upon any other book, and interpreted its meaning juit as the fancy dictated. The speaker condemned the many religious sects tbat have of late spiang up. The spiritualists were among those who were most to be dreaded; for they in their ignorance did not aet for themselves, but did just as the spirits (wbethtr good or evil) told them to perform. How much then was the faith of their society needed in such fearful times ! Every volume issued by the Sweden borgian rociety was a living missionary, preaching peace aDd glad tidings to every house where it is permitted to enter. In conclusion, tbe speaker enjoined all, both rich and poor, to join them in the good enterprise, and with the help of tbe Lord, on the return of their anniversary two years from this date, myriads of asgeU would re joice for tbe good work that had been done, and ioln with those on earth in singing praise* to Him who is the ruler of all things. At the close of Mr Barrett's remarks, the choir sang tbe two hurdreth selection:? Tbe wilderness and the barren place bhall be glad for them. And the desert shall rejoice And blossom as the rose. The Rev. Mr Prbsbick, fr-m England, was then In troduoed to the meeting, which he addressed at some length upon the suscess that attended the labors of the ^wedenborgisn Society in Manchester and elsewhere. Fiom what be ban observed, be bad no doubt of the ulti mate wide spreading of the faith preached by Emanuel Pwedenborg, whose writings were the only unsectarian text books tbat religion is blest with. The following resolution was adopted at the close of tbe last speaker's remark i: ? Reiolved, That this meeting retard the establishment of a new church free reading room in this olty, as an objeot of very grest importance and usefulness, and one eminently worthy of the support ol new ehurohmen throughout the eonntry. The doxology was then sung, and the meeting ad journed. AMEBIC AW BIBLE 80CIETY. The thirty ninth anniversary of the American Bible Society was held yesterday morning in the Broadway Tabernacle. The building was crowded; the majority of the audience, as usual, consisted of ladies. In fact, if we might judge from the composition of the various re ligious anniveisariea which have beea held during this and previous years, it would appear toat the ladle* have a monopoly of religious feeling. As yesterday was the first favorable day they had since the anniversaries com menced, they took advantage of it. The meeting was called to order by the President, Bon. Thkodorx FiKURaHrTSEM, who made a brief and appro priate address. He gave a short sketch of the past his tory of the society, and its present condition, and spoke ol the hopeful prosperity with which it entered upon the ? work of the present year. Be alluded to the large as semblies which attended at these anniversaries as indica tive of a deep religions feeling in the community and as an encouragement for the prosecution of the work in which the society is engaged. There might be fuars In the minds of the timid, the weak might waver, and the de spondent see no hope in the future; bat whi'e there were such proofs, he had no apprehensions about the succsss of the work. It was the work of the Lord, and it must succeed. It was gratifying to all Irue Christians to know that over seven hunared thousand copies of the Bible have been distributed to those who were in need of the word of God, since the last meeting. Was not this fact full of hope; and did it not prove the importance of the society as an agent in the promulgation of Chris tian pr.m iples' Let us, said the speaker in conclusion, continue with unabated seal to prosecute the missitn in which we are employed, and wntch ccnaerns the eternal lntereits of thousands of the human race. The Treasurer's and Managers' reports for the past ?ear ware read by Henry Fisher, Esq. and Rev. Dr. Brig am. The following la an abstract of both reports:? One nsw Manner, Schnreman Halsted, Esq., has been elected to All a vacansy. Mr. Caleb T. Rows bai been ap pointed General Agent, in plaoe of Joteph Hyde, Csq., re fined.

The nnmber of agents at present employed in the domeetio Held is thlrty-flve, in eluding two on tbe I'scMc coast. Darin* the year a new German octave Bible, also a Testament and psalms, have been published from aa approved editicn ol Kaasteia. A Spanish New Tee am*nt, from the Greek; also, a Welsh and English Testament, in patalltl columns, and an Kaglish oc tavo small pica Bible, without references.

A new oatalogue of booke in the library is ptepared, and is about to be issued 1 he remittaaets abroad, tbe past year, have Seen much less than usual, owing to the diminished receipts, and tbe grtat demands for making new hooks, and other home pur poses. It is tbe design of the Board to make further remit tances early the romlar y<ar. Hut while tbe payments of money for the rrinttng the Seriptuies in forelga countries have teen lets than usual, the expenditure Tor making new books at home, and in foreign agancies, has been grester. Oae agent, Rev. Mr. Righter, baa been aent to Turkey aad Syria; another, the Rev. Mr. Montialvatge, to Venexae'Jt, S. A , and get. Mr. FUtcher to Brasil. At the conclusion of tbe foregoing report. Rev. Dr. UrtXAT ofleren and spoke to the following resolution:? Reeolvrd, That the report, aa abstract ef which has been r*ad, be printed and circulated under the direction of tbe Hoard of Managers. The reverend gentleman gave an account of a theo logies! discussion wbicb ho bad with a Catholic clsrgy man, and then proceeded to speak of the blessings which the Bible conferred upon all by whom it was read. It gave freedom to the m na of man, and this, he said, was the reaecn why the Catholic Church refused to allow iu members to read it. It knew well that If it once made such a concession, its power and influence would soon be overthrown It feaied the Bisle as its greatest enemy, and kept the mind of the Catholli oommunlty in a state ef ignorance ind darkness, by withholding from them the truths which it caateined, and without whioh there could he no true liberty. It we*, he said, agratifjing fait that between ten and twelve mil'.lon copies of the Bible t,a4 been circulated ia this country since the wetety w as established. But this waa not ill ? the society should not rent in its labors, while there are ao many in our favore I i?nd who were without th? Scriptures Much had been accomplished, but there was atiil much to be done. All wbo bad a true lore o: man should Lead their co-opera tu n to the society, and anaiat it m the ciicuUtion of the word of God. R*t. lYofeator Havx*, of the Michigan University, presented the next resolution, an folio ? *. ? Resolved, That the more we study the Bible, and ?l.ser?o its adaptation to all the various developemeats of human Society, to teal, to strengthen and to psriect, the m?rt> pro foufcdlv are we convinced that it l?, like its Mtker, inex haustible in its resources, and is, and ever will be, the grand preiervative p wer of al< that i> good among men. Ptufesacr Havsx spoke io reference to the circulation of the Bible a* a work wh ch should enlist the timpi thiee of every men who believed in the saving truth* of Christianity It might be regarded an the foundation of c.vil and religious libtrty? aa the promoter of i tublie education, and all the temporal blessings which ws en joy. Bnt it was not these reasons alone which command ed it 1o ua; it was because in it only is to be found the words of eternal life. This was the principal reason why those wbo believed in it ehould circulate it among those wbo were ignorant of lta glorious and soulsavmg truths. Be did not believe in sny philosophy outside of It, for tliey were human ; wbue that which it taught came from Goi. There could be no virtue without it, no morality tbat is not founded upon its precepts; and philanthropy that was not actuated by its spirit could not exist. Without it the world would fink into its original barba rism and idol worship. There might be, it waa true, a civilization without it. but it would be a miterial civili zation ? without a soul without virtue, without those refining and moral influence* which are the offspring only ot the Bible The next apeaker was the K?v Dr. Black, of Pittiburg, Pa., wbo offered tbe following resolution:? Resolved Tbat the ohjeotion ursed by some against the free use ot the Scriptures, on the ground thit they are hard to he understood, is olearly without oundatlon, derogatory to tbe character of their divine Author, aud perilous to the souls of m*n, aud ought, at this day, to be everywhere abo lished. Tbe reverend gentleman spoke of the objections which ban been urged against the reading of tbe Bible; hut they came from a church which, attar aa agony ana a struggle ot tigbteen centuries, at laat produced the doc trite of the --Immaculate Conception." Wby should the objections of such a church have any influence, when it waa np*d for the purpose of imperilling the souls of man, by withholding from them the right of pri vate j ' /ment and to* trutha of the Bioler Rev. six Thompson spoke to tbe following resolution:? Resolved. Tbat in view of the prevailing ignorance, degra' daiion, superstition, and fanaticism of the land* ot the Bible tbe relation of those lands to the oomnmoiatiia of Christ's kingdom upon ear'h, and the present sspect of Divine Pro vidence toward their populations, we hail with thanksgiving tbe translation of tbe Word of God into the Arabic tongue, which promises to restore that Word in ifs pmity to the re gions where it wss first proclaimed, and which still witness tor its facts and its prophecies. Mr T. gave an account ot the condition of the East, and particularly of the Ho'y land ; and showed the ne cefaity for the distribution of tbe Bible in that quarter. The society waa doing much for this end in tbe transla tion of it into the Arabic tongue, and he believed that it would attll continue its labors until they had brought tbe whole of Asia back to the truths which the Bible alone contained. The following resolution was presented and spoken to by Rev. W. Hallow ay of Brooklyn: ? Resolved, Tbat the precepts, the examples, and the whole spirit ot the Bible, s* we. I as tbe numerous translations now nude, and the favoring coudition of the woild for tlie recep tion of this book, summon those wbo possess it to enlarged effort' ?nd more fervent prayer frr its early diffuiiou among all reople. Tbe resolution was secondtd by Rev. Dr. Tyxq, who read letters from Bon. Robt. C Winthiop, of Maaa , and the Bon. B. W. Billiard, of Alabama, regretting their inability to be present, in conaequeuce of the press of other buaineas requiring all their time and attention at bome. The rev. gentleman then proceeded to apeak of tbe miaeion of tbe United State a aa a Bible distributing country, and the obligations which rested npon all it* citizens to lend their luaiatanoe to the promulgation of lta sacred truths. At the conclusion of Rev. Dr. Tyng'a remarks bene diction waa pronounced, and the meeting adjourned. AMERICAN ANTI-SLAVERY SOCIETY. THE ABOLITIONISTS IN CHrRCH? DISCUSSION ON THK PROPOSITION OF A NORTHERN OONVKNTION. The second day 'a session of the twenty- second anni versary of the American Anti-Slaver y Society was held yesteTdsy morning in the Freewill Baptist Chnrch, Sul livan street, the attendance was very thin, there not being probably more than two hundred persons present, which might be thus d Tided: ? White ladies, ltO; color td do., 60; white n>en, 30; black do., 10. The meeting was opeied bj a prater by Rev. Mr. Griswold, of Con necticut; aft?r which the meeting was addressed by W Lloyd Garkwox, who went on to demonstrate that the Usueof the Anti-Slavery Society was the same as that of the Freewill Baptist church and other religious de mlnatione? namely, that no slaveholder or advo cate of slavery should be allowed to be a member of the Christian church; and that, therefore, If the firmer deserved the name of infidel, the members of the Chnrch which admits him no leA merit the sane epithet. Mr. 6. suggested in conclusion, that as several speeches were to be delivered, it would be well for the speakers to be brief and pithy. (Approbation.) He exhibited a memorial, which was rather too long to be read, received from Scotland, on the sabjeot of slavery, which memorial bad several thousand signa tures. Mr. McKimma submitted a motion that the meeting of to day be public, and that or to morrow be a private meeting or the members of the society.

The American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, the American Home Mission Society, the American Bible Soeiety, the American Bible Uni?n, the American Tract So ciety, the American Sunday Scuool Union, the Amerioan and Foreign Christian Union, tbe American and Foreign B He Society, the American Baptist Publication Society, the American Baptist Heme Mission Society, the Presbyte rian Board et Foreign Missions, the Missionary Socittlesof the Protestant Metbodist, the Ipiaoopal Metbodist and Mo ravian bodies, respectively, being in league and fellowihlp with the slaveholders of tbe Sonth, utterly dumb in regard to the slave system, and inflexibly hostile to tbe anti-slave ry movement, are not only wholly undeserving of any peou marv aid or pnbllo countenance at tbe North, but oannot be supported without conniving at all the wrongs and outrages by which chattel slavsry is eharaeteiised; and. therefore, ought to be instantly abandoned by every one claiming te be the friend of liberty and a disciple of Christ the Redeemer. Resolved. Tbat the attempt of tee New York Intlepmdent , and other religions journal*, to shield the American Board of Foreign Missions from anti-slavery condemnation, and to represent it as occupying a soand petition in regard to tbe enslaved millions in our land, hecaute or its action at Hart ford respecting certain laws in the Cbootaw nation, pertain ing to tbe instruction of slaves and free colored persons in mission schools? is marked by fraud, Jesuitism, and the en prcmacy of sectarian eicluslvensss over the Instincts of hu manity. Resolved, That in the appointment of tbe Rev Dr. Mshe mish Adams of Boston, during the present week. In this city, as a member of tbe Executive and Publishing Com mittee of tbe Americaa Traot Society notwithstanding tbs publication ot bis lntsmous l<oek, entitled "A Southslde Vie* ot blavery," wherein he ridicules the allexed suffer ings snd degradation of tbe slave*, represents their condl tlon as almost an enviable one, and proclaims a state ot slavery to be sisnally preventive ot paoperism, crime, mob oeracy and popular delusions, and highly promotive ot piety and Its kindred virtues? tbat society Indicates a depth ot depravity, and a hardihood of aspect, whiob no language is adequate to describe. One or two other resolutions proposing the disruption of tbe Inion aid the formation ot a Northern confede racy, were also real; but thoy have been heretofore published, having been propoeed at an abolition meeting in Boston a few weeks ago. Mr. Hknry C. Wrhjht inti aated that the reeolntlon jnst read had taken the wind out of his sails. He had prepared some resolutions, bnt he found that tbe senti ments of tbem were comprised In those submitted. Still, his argument was contain* d in those reeolutions, and so be wonld read them : ? Wbereas, the government of tbe United States Is composed in psrt or slaveholders; and whereas, said government ex tends tbe same rights, privtlegss and protection to slave holders which It extends to aon slaveholders, thas ignoring tbe disruption between slavery and liberty, between Jnstioe and injustice; and whereas, it tarns mau into ohattels and puts him oa trial before its tribuaals on the issue- is a slave a msa or a beast? and whereas, according to the terms 0( the compact, at these have ever been understood by its au thorised expounders, elavery aad liberty have aa ennM poli tical right to be represented la all departmeats of the ge vernmsnt, aad that slaveholders have as good a political right to obtala the control of tbe government and wield It to the support and perpetuity of slavery, ae non slaveholders have to gst control of It aad wield it in favor of liberty; therefore. Resolved, Tbat a government thus constructed aad admi nistered can never be ased as means to abeltsh slavsry, er snstaia and perpetuate liberty. Resolved. Ihat tht t'ri" l<n Wlvtome to firm a Northern confederacy, in wbt. ' ? m ??. . it now be held aa a slave, or put on tnal bef. re >? r '.irjat os the ls>ae whether be 'be s run or a beast, am: In ?< hicli sleeeho'dsrs shall he>agarded and treated as highway rifbbers, murderers, aad other feloas sre regarded and treated. Mr. Waioirr proceeded to draw comparisons between sheep stealers, highway robber* muroerers, felons awl n an stealers, and thought tbat asscciatlon with one was as bad as association with tbe other. It Is con temptible (be said) for honest men to eit down In the Senate snd House of Representatives ; and laws mad* by such a sot ot rascals should be trodden under foot. (Ap plause ) But man stealers receive aa much rights and privileges in this country ss honest men receive. The only place wtere the friends of liberty ana the friends of elavery ought to meet. 1s the Held of action snd of blood. Those who sit in Congress are part and paroel of tho man stealing confederacy . and honest men snould tu^n their bseks, at once and forever, on this unjust and Iniquitous Union. L>r Snoimjiukh. Viee I'reiident of the Knnsa* Etiigra tlon Society of New York, next took the floor He said' | he hsd never been a< le to aet with this ? tbe Garnsontan ? section of the antl slavery party, but still he would have <*ote everything in his power to help it along. Ihelr leading principle was dissolution of the ("man, hut that piopvsition was hitherto Intangible and indefinite. For once, however, the/ ha.l a proposition now before ttunto build up an institution in of that which they would paU down Thin is a qu ration practical iu therefore, for the first lime be could oo operate with the GsrriAuni&n*. He proceeded to oppose the resolution referring to the Nortnem confederacy: ai d in tfae co ur km of bis argument nuurud that while ^ortbern men in Wohisgit.n and the South were untrue we re *ac?n r o pti b le? corrupted, Southern men Mr. BrBLHCH (in<'iKnantlj )_ Slaveholders are easily aUre trade aud baT" ?iy*,>WO)Oge o( Interest in the \ N0l,c,<iwj?

I would inquire whether the white people of the South? the uon Uveholding white population of the South? are not the property in a ?L "I* slaveholders/ ? whether the 9 200,000 i.roo of property doea not cstotrol, not only the action of the slaveholders, but ti e conduct of the non slaveholders.'? whether the non .laveholders are not completely subservient, from the very nature of the institution, to tut slaveholders? Mr. Snoduraw acknowledged that to a very great ex tent this watt so; but stated that the people of the free 8 ates who have gone down South are much wane, and place more barriers in the way of progress, than the ? outherD people themselves. He appealed to the Presf dent to protect h<m from further Interruptions. In an !I'^? ?"Motions oi Mr. Garrison, Mr 8. asked whether did he think tbev would have slavery or free sr&ss&s."" J "? ???? ? ?7. lir. GAKJUboM ? Freedom, of course. *r. ?m not to sure of that Mr. 9 con tinued bis remans in reUtiou to the paltrooaery of Northern men lU-Ksnsas. 1 7 or The following persons were appointed the Finance Com mittee -Abby keliy Foster, Susan U. Anthony, Aaron Vi ??' Ro?'*na Johmon, anoe Ruggies. sn^k.?"*.?0^ U?k,th* floor * '??pond to the last speaker. He bad not intended to joiu ia this oebate. ahnim ''?"J1 ?inY"*'' thou?h be came here as an abolitionist, still he was opposed to the Northern confe deracy proposition. He agreed with the remarks which hie friend Garrison made yesterday, that if the Union could not be preserved without a sacriflce of principle aad conscience, then indeed they had but one course to adept He was aot of opinion that that waa so. The argument of Mr. Wright proves too much, for it proves that while we are builcing up onr Northern confederacy, we can have no connection with slavery men. Now ha .greed with the last speaker in bis sSntlmentsabout Northern ajd Southern pro slavery men. The Northern pro slavery men wtre worse than the Soutlierters Ihe argument ol his friend Wngot wa, an argument sgaiust all civil government. In the first place we would 7e~ j? c*rry ^ut his idea ? to colonize all pro slavery men, all rumsellers, and ail dishonest men: and then rl** v? \ JVIi no "tetl c'vii government at all. (Laughter.) Civil government consists in the entire community, honest or dishonest, Mr. Foktkr asked whether he believed it right to enter into a compact with evil doers, even for the purpose of baying civil government y p Mr. Goodkll ? l"hat uuestion ia based on misappre hension. In my idea or civil government, I believe that every man is a member of civil government, whether he will or not. Mr. Garrison.? And every woman too? Sir. Goodell Ye?. Mr Foster.? Then Mr. Garrison is a government man9 Mr. Gooi eli^-1 suppose he ia; I hope so. ( Laughter ) Mr. G. proceeded to give his idea of civil government. He Hcoffed at the Know Nothing idea of excluding for eign?rs living in the nation. Mr. Garrison? Ana excluding women ? (Langb ter?D*Ll^^ **' M(1 *xc'U(lln8 women, too. Mr Pbilijps rose to a question of order? that the question of civil government was not before the meet n"tnb*r T''he? the speaker to go on, an! to tell the meeung wnetber he recognized any distinction between civil society and civil government Mr. Phillips desired the preceding speaker if he wished to have civil socitty and civil government die cursed, to hire a hell for the purpo?e. (Applause ) ill continued hia rem ark h denying 6he pro position that civil government was a mere compact He would not, however, bore the convention by jroin* into a l?^fonrSfU^BD|V , H" tDought, however, that the const i tution of the Untied States was almost completely in favor of liberty-tbe Fugitive 81a ve law being swept away, and the clause aa to the three Bfths repiessnta tion, all the rest was in favor of liberty. Mr. Garrison? What about the clanse to suppress do mestic insurrections!' U *U * bu?bear in ???? North <rn mind. (laughter) Mr. Kostto suggMted that the words of the clause were that the United States should protect each of the I States sgainst domestic violence. Mr. Gogdell? I thank brother Foster; and now that I recollect that when Geriitt Smith was nominated for the Presidency, he said in bis pamphlet, in reference to clause, that domestic violence meant domestio sla rtTJ; ??'l that the clause gave the government power to put it down. (Laughter.) He proceeded to argue that there were no laws in any of the slave States authorizing slavery: but that slave property was held like any other property, by common law right. Mr. Fostxk again intimated that the descusslon was not in order, snd went on himself to make a speech on bis own hook. A Colore!) Bkudher ? (Mr. Remind) rose to a point of order, which was that the retolutions offered, permitted tie wnlest latitude in this debate, and that brother Fos n r W\r,Ut,?f.0rder- j P1*'1"*1*** point waa the dissolu tion of the Union, and be hoped to hear all light thrown upon It (Hear, bear an1 applause ) The CnAiR supported the point of order, and Mr. Goodell was directed to proceed. Mr. Gooiikll continued to argue and cite cases to show that slavery only existed by municiptl law. Mrs. Rose asked bow be would disposo of the distinc tion made in the constitution, between white men and black men. It says precisely all white citizens. Mr. Goodeil? Oh, no ? you are mistaken. I hare got the constitution in my pocket, and It does not say so. (Laugi ter ) Mr I. Rosk.- There Is another point? the provision made for three filtbs vote of the Slave states. Mr. Goodell ? It is not so. It does not read so. I know that is the common impression; but what I am at Is that very tbing-to correct this false impression. There is nothing in the constitution about slaves or oo loted persons. Frederick Douglas is eligible for a seat In the Congress of the United States, aad to the Presidency ?r the I nited 8tates; and so is my friend in the corner? Bemond. (Apuause.) The President can nominate a sWof! State Po,t,n**t*"hlP' or ?*?" to the Secretary Mr. Garrison? I am sure Mr. Goodell does not want to trifle with the audience. Mr. GooniLis? Certainly not. Mr. Garbukw ? Ihe question is not as to the legality of slavery. We do not ask whether there is any pos' t je law for sUvery in the South. It Is not that ques ? n? ihtt*' wi,1 / tb'r*fo1*- 14 '? not worth while to ar gne that ^ hat I put to you as an honest, truthful ?"" " d? JO" to deny that when the const! . 8UtM V " "? intended smJ - ?^??holders as such should represent three nitbfl of their ^)ave population ? Mr, Goomll? Have we evidenoe that they did mean sny sucb thing'' (laughter ) Mr Garrison? what do you believe on this subject? Mr. Goodell ? I am about to sbow you. When you prove the illegality oi slavery you do more than you think. 1 4. Mr" y?u us your veraion of the three fifths clause? (Laughter.) Mr Goopkll ? Ob. yes Those who were not considered freemen, snd bad no right to vote, were in the old Saxon ideas ''aliens;" and It is a rule of legal interpretation tj^t this clause applied to all persons who were not en titled to vote? aliens, &c. He went om to refer to clauses of the constitution which were absolutely on pored to slavery. 3 p Mr. C. C Bcrlmoh next obtained the floor, and com pered the argement jf the last sneaker to the plea of the counsel in the historic ense of the borrowed kettle to wit? that the kettle was sound when his client returned ! 1 U "roken when he received it; and thlr*1 , that be never bad it at all (laughter ) Mr Goodell admitted tbat there appeared to be dis crepancies in bia argument, but contends! that his meaning wss clear Mr. Prs leigh could only judge from words ? he could not go behind tbem. He wished to show here tbat they all agreed on the principles of disunionlsm. The coneti tnt'en did make a distinction between white and colored persons. W ben Mr B. had been speaking some heur or so. he was ?Dut off by Mr*. .Mwy Kkixy Foenru, who came in to report for tb?i I- m. nee Committee. The aomety, she Mid, wished lor ti.ooey for *pecf0c puipow* a? d for K*oerat purpo ?ea independent of tho ?gn in the treasury , which ia already a|]irf>pmte<l or pledged? on* of the>e specific purp<"?g eta to tend 1 1 ? i n * preacher* throughout )he country Tley wanted by thl* mean* to ext'wruiah and fnt to re?t Id Irdiaoa and the Weet. the Pet'ttaand looglaa'a, aa tbey bad pat down the Krerett* and Winibrop* in Maeeachueetta. She therefore proponed that a collection abould now be made in aid of their fund*. Mr*.

And Mr Burleigh, who had been *o cruelly ?hnt off hv Mr*. Foeter. re*umed bi* dl*eour*e and cottoned to inflict hi* view* on the meeting for another thiee-quar ter aof an hour. Mr Gtrrlaoo, at 3 o'clock P. M., mored a rerea* te 4 P. M. , but a* that did not meet favor, he proceeded to *peak in reply to the argument* of Me**ra. Goodell aod ?nodgraaa. STIKINO SKflflON. The anti-slavery people met again in the evening, at the *ame place. The attendance bad dwindled down to fcalf what it bad been in the morning. The rid Quaker g? ntleman who had dl*tinguiahed hiaaclf teste'day at tbo Metropolitan theatre, wa* pre teat ail be day, tra i ttrnizing with tbe reporters.

He condemned disutuoniam. He intimated that Mr. Phillips had not spoken yesterday the exact truth, when ha aaid the society could not procure a cbarch hero to hold their anniveraary. Seme five or six churcbea would have ad mitted item Mrs. Ashy Fohtku aga n applied the screw for more funis, with what success we know not. Mr. Garrison. in tbe absence of Mr Pbithpe, explained what tbe latter meant In the remark alluded to. aaurohes of a convenient size, ami of high standing and repute ? not colored churches. They bad had Or. Cb&pin'a church last year, but it was now closed on tbem. Dr. ?nith inquired what -the Chairman meant by re putablt churches. Wat not Zion church reputabler ? (Good.) Tbe chairman appeared somewhat nonplussed by thia home question, but made an explanation of bis meaning. Mr W right hoped this peraoaal discutalon wosld cease ; If not, that Dr Smith should be put down. Mr. Yin Box Brown (another colored gentleman, who migrated northward In a box) made a long speeoh, in which be went in strong for the dissolution of ihe Union. Major Downing (of oyater celebrity) inquired of Mr. Brown bow he would treat tbe pro Blavery portion of the community. Mr. Brown would answer that The prejudice against tbe A'rican race rise* entirely from slavery. There is no such thing as prejudice against color; If there wm, why did gentlemen have their boots blacked, wheo they might more eerily have them whitewashed)' (Laughter.) Mr. Ired Douglass ("the black'1) next took the fioor and spoke in defence of tbe constitution and Union a^ainet the silly attacks made on it by previous white speakers. He completely swamped Mr. Philosopher Bur ltigli anil all the otber dliunionlst philosopher*. Mrs. Ekms-tink L. Rosk, seeing no opportunity of get ting the floor, bere ( 10 o'clock P. M.) made Mt conge (the old Qu acker gentleman being at the time fait asleep among the reporters). FrkdDocguass continued bis remark! in a manner but little pleasing to tbe audience. Mr. Bi rlsigh appealed to tbe Chair to call Fred to order. Mr GARRISON thought the society was too well aware of the relation between it. nnd the speaker was too well kt own to render any explanation necessary. Mr May reminded the society ot some very naughty thing? said and done by Fred againtt the leaders of tbe society. Mr. Fran*. in amwer to a question of Mr. Douglass, as to what fort of a government he would form, answer ed, a Northern confederacy in union with tbe slaves of the Bouth. Such a union was already formed. He ex pected soon to see a civil war in this country. Frkii Douglass intimated a doubt as to the manly bearing of non-resistants of this society in such u con tingency. [10:35 P. M.? Fred is still speaking? several ladies sleeping, and many quietly dropping out.] Tbe Chair intimated that it wai discourteous for an avowed enemy of their society to be intruding on their time at tbia late hour. Mr. Douglass d d not come to sue for peace, though be did think he was invited to reconciliation. He loon took hi* teat Bev. Mr. Wilson then took the floor, but aa there was little more fun in expectancy the reporters made their MMt 1 be organization of the society Is the same aa last year, with a few trifiiug exception*. NEW YORK INSTITUTION FOR THE BUND. The annual exhibition of the pupils of this institution ! was given yesterday afternoon, at the Tabernacle, Broadway. Tbe liouie was densely crowded .in every part ? the pupils occupying seats in the choir. On ac count of the lack of ihe usual accommodation* for re porters, we could obtain but partial glinspecs of what was going on, but the exhibition seemed to be credit able to the pupils and their teacher*. Annexed ia the progrinrme : ?

The exh bition was under the direction of Mr. Cooper, Superintendent of the Institution. The muaic, both vo cal and instrumental, was vary well executed, and tome original compositions in prose and verse presented by tbe pupiu were above tbe average order of merit. AMERICAN TEMPERANCE UNION The nineteenth anniversary of the American Tempe rance I'nion wm held l&at evening in the Broadway Ta bernacle. To say that the building wm crowded would fail to give a correct idea of its condltiou ? every avail able loot of atanding room even wm occupied, and the very entrances were filled with persona. The Rev. Dr. Syng, the lion of the evening, pieeided, assisted by a number of letter Ughta. The exercises weie opened with prayer by Rev. Mr. Squires; after which the following abstract of the annual report was read by Dr. Marsh, Corresponding Secietary : ? The report commenced with the inquiry, shall a aatiin be boru in a dayf Not. it replied nnder th? operation of say natural or aeltUu principle All the old nations of the earth were atruogers to moral reform. But, under the beievoleat influence ol Christianity, debasing customs sre renounced, avarits is checked, thrones of iniquity established by law are overturned, and nations suddenly rise, like ludividuala, le tbe noblest aspirations and the enjoyment of the riobsei blessings. Tout ) ears have not elapsed unee the State of Maine commenced a revolution wbiob should banish drank - ennetr, idleness, waste, domestic contention, want, crime, and make all things new It was a reform equ&llT demand ed in every 8' ste; the movement r-ached the publio heart, and now twelve States. Maaaachuaetta, Rhode Inland, Ver mont, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, lihio. Inditt a, Illinois, Michigan, and lows, embracing mil lions of freemen, have followed in hor wake, bursting the ohsina in which the) were bound, in s dsy. The report de tails tbe Instructive sad marvellous prnceaa in each iJtata; the operations and results or tbe 1'rohihltory law; the ob structions Ibrown iuita psth; tbv increased attaohmstt to itof th < people; its complete rsmedy, so far aa it prevails, forintemperance aae numerous kindred evils; its rescue or the Sabbath under an elAoient magistracy; the, at first, ap palling, but finally futile objections; the interest with which It ia viewed by distant nations, and tbe effort low required tor the eradication of Intemperance, that it may become the law ot the civilised world. Tbe publications, periodicals, tracts, and agencies of tbe society, have heea much as in former years. Donations fr?m friends of tbs cause, in the >ear ending 1st of May, have amounted to S2.3A0 HU. State aoeleties, auxiliary and other organisations in tht past year, have, for their zeal, merited the highest commendations. The journal of the Union la new in its nineteenth year. Irtm its ? ommencement, in 1S37, it has been conducted by Dr. Marsh, the Corresponding Secretary. A motion wm made and adopted that the foregoing re port be printed and extensively circulated An antnem wm son; by tbe labernaoie choir, atter which K?v. Mr. CooMBf. of Philadelphia, offered and tpoke to the follow ing resolution : ? Resolved, That the great extension of the prohibi'ory principle in lieu of license laws, and it a adoption, under va nous forma, by thirteen States, embracing more than twelve millioaa ot people, ia a subject ot great oongrstulstien . end, as it is the work of the people for the protection of selves and their children, there it reason to belis re u will both be sustained aad become tbe law of tbe civilised world. Ihe reverend gentleman said he wm present as the tepreaentative of Pennsylvania, being the chairman of the Central Committee of the temperance cause In that State. He confessed they were -omewhat behind New York In this reform: but they would toon overtake her, and were determined 'that she snonld not always take the lead. It was gratifying to htm to be able to tay that tke history of the U mperatce movement in I'ennayl vania wax not only hopeful, but It exhibited her in a proud position of supremacy They had not a t nil pro hibitory law, but lie bad no doabt tL at It would soon be pssstd. Thst which they had adopted, however, was nearly equal to a complete pro hi bitioo, ssd they had procured the entire execu tion of 'lie Sunday Liquor law He concluded by ex pressing tbe belief that, if the liquor dealer* outraged the law their action would recoil upon their own heads and lead to a more vigorous execution of its provieiont Ihe following resolution wae offered by Mr. BVUIMM, and sccteded in a few brief remarks by Hon. G. W. arm ujro &f I'oughktepeie: ? Resolved. Tbst under tbs strongly expressed opinion of Us people si>d their Legislatures in favor of prohibitory liquor laws. we are not at all disquieted and dismayed by OLinlora and decisions drawn out by those who cry, ' By this craft we have nor wealth.'' Our appeal from them all is to the reopie. who, in their sovsrsitaty, will not fail to tat* care of themselves, and overthrow svsry throne of ltd qnity established by law. The HaNelojah chorus, a sort of thanksgiving song u r the titumph of the Maine Liquor law, wa* sung by the choir, and then e%n?e Dr. Timo, wno commence i by allnr It g to a notice which he anid he bad seen in a morn ing J arer, that he bad to mace aa apology for errors he had recently coaniritted.
