IIokeoi'k, Oninrio Co., ) N. y. June 2,1640. i r To S. B. Tkauw 1:1.1.. L My Dear Sir- lt is many ycars since 1 have y met witli you, face to lace, but 1 do not foige: your eaily labora', iu this State lor the onslaved. ( and I a in irequenily gratified to learn, froni the ( western papers, that you are still zoaluusly ( gngod in iho same gó'cd' cause. Your letter to l the Liborty friends in Michigan, in the Signal , of Liberty for May l'öth, I lïave careiully perus . ed, froni which 1 loarn that you differ from me, eoniewhat, in respect to the coursc which the , friends of Libeny ouglit to pursue. I do noi , wonder at this, for I havo not now to leain, loi , the firet time, that wbenever, in the progress o: , ány good cause, it bccomea ueccesary to extend . the application of the principies u'pon jvflfch the áWprise is bascd, the iiret impre&jion, upon inany miMsj is that tiew principies are abotit to be introducedjiind they arcad ihe divnriing effocts whích tbè'y apprehend would ensue. Wiien ii was fust priposcd 10 extend the total absiinence pletlge, froni distilled to feriiu-nied Iiquors, ' most universal was the misapprehensïcn, thai ven Edward C'. Delavdn thought it would bc rumous to "cn'giaft pthec principies ihan tliost1 if the Tempcranco Soc.ety," upan tho , pcrance creed. And 1 hno yet to mett witti o cinglo argument ngoiual theunivertial upplication of ÍÁÍz -ij priiuii'l's liy tho LiLurty party thai does not snbstüntnillv cirr--s;)ond wiüi the argumeuts used ügniasi '.--. 1 uxiiucuon ot' the te-totaifltde. Di8filêd .;q.Jis, it was said, wtfs the ttiaiti evil, in the conipa.-ison wiih wliich. fermonled liquors .■■lid iho possillo eviis feJBuidng from thein were too trilling to benatneil. Lel u sbolish thó "giguiitic evil" first, Baid they, and takc care of tho little evils. (if they prove to bc euch,) afterwards. VVhy divert nttention froni the onc great ljeet befóte us? Would not disputes on sucli doubtful questions as beer, and ei. dor, and wine, luiry the. Ruim ji'nii' Brandy question almosl out of sight? Would not many bccome disgusted, porplexed, and discourucd, to Boe, in the Töinpcranco Sucioty such an ;'end C6S multiplication of ita own creed, lo su-ii iiuü1?idnals and circumstances!" Would not snuh a courso "prove eininently hazardous and doiusive in the oxtrenic?" Would it not be "grasping at ihadows and losing the sulstunce'l Wc are doinga great worli and cannot come down :" Why should the woik ccaso"í Must our eocieticá ''have as ïïiany creeds, good or bad, as tliey have menibers"? The Cider man and tho antiCider man. tho beer man and the ami-beer man. the wine man, and the anti-winc man, will go along with us, now. But the introduction of the te-total test. would set idem fighting toether, like so many "Kilkenny Cats" ándalas! lor the poor inebríate, tlien! Has not the enterpi . . alrendy. been productivo of vast Itencfila? Why, then, despair, & "go down into Ecypt for help"? Why pay ony man'nor of attention to tho vns; niajjriiy of the marses, the low loalere, and brui; zere, who will cárp and cavil, and insist uon ii that theic is ncither consistency nor honosiy in our measures, so long as we ask them to help put down Ruin oud Whiskey, while tho reformers thernsclves still cling 10 the Cider and Wine? No I No ! Let us pny 110 ottention to those ob jections. Is not "shearselfishnesa the coverning principie that guides thein"7 What should we gnin by introduciug inillions üf tliem :nto our xanks? Let us cling to our "one idea" oftoial abstinence, except for medicine, from distilled ligiwrs unly. Tlius reasoned wjse and good men for a long time. Tho American Ternporance Society, with ita Edwards, its fievitt, ifs Governore and Doctor of Divinity without number, iho N. Y.

Tho Liberty party, you sny, was orguniz :d to procuro, througli the civil governineri', the abolilton of chattel Slavery.
