- Thid is the titleota new paper, pubiishcd at Oberlin. Oliio, by aYouth's Anti-Slavery Society. It is monthly at '25 cents per year. Il is on the right plan. - Let the cli'ddrcn all becumu tlirougb abolitionists, and thcre will s;on be no lack of liberty tolas. Wc wish it mucb success. (CThe Signa] of Libcrty continuos its war on the proteclion of hume industry ant northern labor. It offers no reaspns founded on the inerits or demeriis of ïhat policy, but simply denounces thé movemenl in its favor. The whole schenie is so apparentj that little noed be said about it. The editor is an udroit and skilful politician, and nothiriir more. He wouid be a prominent leader inany of the poliiical parties of' the day, oí Ihe best miinagerin the r.mks. He wants to build up hs ovvn party, and of course, oppoises all ol her parties in whatever ihey niay do or say, right or wrong. The whigs are in favour of a protective tariff, and therefore, he is ngoinst it. This is the whoie mystery, and it is quito common-place. If this is to be the end and aim of anü-Llavery, then wliatias been terrred the great moral rnovemeñi "f the age, will terminatein a poütical hvm bug. Jf the party shall ever becomo a mujorit , wliy, a few o( its leaders will get high offices, and tbe poor slaves will take care ol tln:mselves. But the whig abolitioniste wlio have boen sinceiely desiroüa of mainaiín"ng northern interest?, wili hardly follow such a load, r in his opposition to tríe protection bf home mdustry. They are too much in carnest. - Detroit ddvertiser. Weare somewhat surprised at the appenrance of the preceding arlicle in (lie Adveríiser. From the usual tenor of tlie articles n that paper, we had thought be! ter of the Editor than to believe he would adopt the last resurt of fourth rate poüticians iind venal .cribblers - irnpugning the motives,and blackening the character of opponent?, whom he does not and will not atlempt to ovenhrow by argument. His article conveys the impression to hi? readors, that all the leading poütical Abolitionifts are a set of heartlese ltnavt-s and profound hypocriïes,unworthy of confidenceor respect, wbösè flagitiousness needs only lo be mcntioiH'd to show its enormity. He represent them as giádod by no moral principie, and as ready and willing to advocate wrong as right. To such charges we shall mnkeno replay. - Had they come from a differrnt source, wo should not have noliced them. We shall mako no argument to show that we have the cause of the slaves sincere!} at heart. We expect to show our faith by our works. Besides, argument, is unnecessary. The Editor of the Advertiser does not, at heart believe liis own statements, and we are inclined tothink that, upon reviewing the article, he will hirnself bc asharricd of it. Bnt we deern it proper to repeat once more, that WE WAR NOT AGA1NST A l'ROTRCTIVR TARirr. We make no issue npnn that subject. - A protective TariíF is no partoftlie object of the Liberty party. If a majority of the peo - pie wish fora protective 'J'ariff, it will undoubtedly be had. We leave ever y one to be persuaded n his own mind on this subject. But we havo. feit il our duty to warn the friends of the slave against an attempt nniv making, which is calculated, and as we believe, designed, to be a fiecond edition of the T.og Cabin and Hard Cider operations of 1840 - an attempt to secure upon the high pre.-sure principie, by mere hue and cry, the election of a Whig SJavebreeder to the Presidency in 1844, and thus once more perpetúate and strenglhen the reign of the Slave Power.- Such a rcsult we deprécate, and shall certainly opposp in all proper ways.
