The Anti-Slavery Convention at Syracuse, N.Y,, on the 30th ult., was broken up by an organized band of ruffians, — as in Buffalo, Rochester, Rome, Auburn, Boston, and other places, — who made the night hideous by their riotous demonstrations, which, on the score of indecency, have not yet been equaled. Effigies of Rev. Samuel J. May and Miss Susan B. Anthony were paraded through the streets, “with shouts, hootings and screechings, mingled with disgusting profanity and ribaldry.” So says the Syracuse Journal. Such are the allies of Mr. George Lunt, Mr. George S. Hillard, and the Courier clique collectively. Further particulars next week.
