The annual meeting of the Michigan Wesleyan Anti-Slavery Society will be holden at Ann Arbor on the second Wednesday of January next to commence precisely at 10 o'clock A. M. and continue through the day and evening. Let every member of the Methodist Episcopal church in this State, who loves the cause of the poor slave, and wishes well to Zion, be in attendance. We bid them a hearty welcome to our village, and will do all in our power to make them comfortable while among us. Let those choice spirits who during the past year have felt it their duty to secede from the church come up to our solemn feast. We shall rejoice to receive them as fellow Iaborers in the the cause of emancipation,- Come, brethren, to the rescue! to the rescue! G. BECKLEY. Ann Arbor, Dec. 14th, 1841. Anti Slavery Missionary Meeting. We, the undersigned, believing it to be our bounden duty, no only to withhold our contributions from Missionary Treasuries which in any way sanction the sin of slavery, but to devise new channels for our Missionary appropriations; to make an effort for the mental and moral good of the colored people of Canada, would hereby respectfully invite our brethren of every denomination, to meet with us in Ann Arbor immediately after the adjournment of the anniversary of the Michigan Wesleyan Anti-Slavery Society, which will probably be at noon on Thursday, to organize a Missionary Society. We say to each, and to all of you holding similar sentiments, come on! In tho name of God we say COME ON! W.M. Sullivan, Dr. V. Meeker, S.P. Mead, J. Thayer, S. Bebbens, T. Crane.
