In another column will be found a nolice of the anniversary meeting of ou State Antislavery Society. All shotiK make arrangements for altending it who ran possibly do so. These annual ga therings of antislavery men are highly useful in making thetn acquainted with each other,in imparting mutual confidence and regard, and producing that onenesso feeling and purpose which is ble to success in enterprises requi.ring the concurrence of many. Stirring and im porlant events have transpired since our last meeting. Oregon has be&n given up ; the Harbor Bill vetoed ; Free Labor iDterests sacnficed : Mexico invaded ; a war of Conq'Jest put in progress ; eight Mexican provinces conquered ; Califor nia and New Mexico annexed ; fiftcen hundred American lives sacrificed in a war for the propagation of Slavery ; C M. Clay enlisted in fighting its battles ; Millions spending; where Freedom was, Slavery creating ; all done by a Republic - our oicn Republic - done by Northern Men, Money and Votes, at the bidding, and for the interest, of 250,000 Slaveholders. Whatshallbe our action in view of these and similar events in our country's hibtory ? No annual meeting has ever been held as far west as Kalamazoo, and it is obvious that the numbers in attendance on this occasion must be chiefly from western counties. A large turn out will be expected from them.
