Tin: (jiK'stio!) ofslavery is now being discussetl n the M:ignziuo anti Advocate oi' ihis city. The di.scus.sion arosc on the quesllon of tho "Protest" which is being circulated lor signalures among l ni versal isls. Parsou Skinner, the principie editor, think.s the instilulion safar lfl and so sustnined by laws as lo render u's thunder powerloss, and eflbrts in ihat dircclion a wíisle oflabor, and threatons lo sluit down the gate of discussion. W'v suggest that American slavery i.-i nol hall' wny across t lic universo, andas lir. Skinner's love is, it must necessarily cross ihat 'jjliigue .-spot' in ils widc range throughout tho universe of God! Don'f, Br. S., becomo a rank 'parlialist,' living only lor iho white nan'á portion oí' God's people! tíurely ou liave loo much moral courage to wjnk at iniquity bccause it is 'framcd into i law,' lf youcnn't volc it down, Ilias it down! 'Protest' it down! If Presbyteinnism werc a law establishment in the District of Columbio, and throughout the South, we suspect' your votes and 'protest' vould go out 'thick and fasf,' and in quick jccession ngainst 1 he outrage on human rights; but stül such an establishment is tot quile as bad as slavcry. - Ulica hibcriy Press.U Rcv.
