REVIEW OF ANTI-SLAVERY PUBLICATIONS, AND DEFENCE OF
THE COLONIZATION SOCIETY.
Address of the New York Anti-Slavery Society. Printed by West and Trow: New York,
1833. Declaration of the Anti-Slavery Convention, assembled at Philadelphia, De cember 6, 1833.
We have read the Address and Declaration above named, with surprise and regret. Had they been content with the fullest developement of their own views and principles, however much we might have differed, we should have felt respect even for the errors of misguided good will. But when the Declaration proceeds to enjoin political action, it is proper its principles should be examined; and when the Address, in a style of sin. gular self-confidence, assails and denounces by name, a respectable Society. that has long been labouring for the welfare of the African race, and, as we believe, with the purest motives; we deem it, in common justice, due to the history and the numerous friends of the Colonization Society, that it should be heard in defence.
We must protest against the exclusive and uncompromising spirit of the Address, as exbibited in the following paragraphs: -"It is our object to recommend the only practicable and safe plan," &c. And again, “The only wise method of making it (emancipation) entire, is to make it immediate." We take leave to say, that many sober minded men, after deep reflection, believe that a system of gradual abolition is wiser, because happier for the slave, and safer for the country. And with such views, many of the free states have addressed their legislation to this subject. In New York and New Jersey, the abolition of slavery has been the gradual work of the last thirty years. The enlightened statesmen, who have devoted their best thoughts to this interesting subject, did believe that they not only might, but were solemnly bound to aim at less than immediate emancipation, while they were honestly and earnestly seeking the sure and final abolition of slavery.
- The Address has collected fragments of speeches, detached remarks of individuals, isolated paragraphs, culled from newspapers and reports of
