By this article, die loss of even a toodi
by the act of a master, entitled a servant to
his freedom. There is not, in the whole
Mosaic code, a single statement that the
servant's testimony whs ever excluded, nor
(he least hint looking in that direction
beside, exclusion could not le leceived ex.
cept by positive enactment, for no one will
pretend it is a law of nature. . Any servant,
therefor, who would go before a Hebrew
mapMrate and testify arid prove that his
master had inflicted permanent personal in
jury upon him to the extent of the Joss of a
Mingle tocdi, he was immediately to tie set
at liberty ; and the coaster was ilm stigma
tized ns unfit to have a servant under his
control. Sucn v us the humanity of tlie
Mosaic code, sudi were its facilities of
emancipation; and m lmpossib.e was it
under the influence of that code to treat
servants with harshness and cruelty.
Une other enactment in connection with
the above also deserves consideration. It is
contained in Exod. 21: 20, 21.
The limitation of tlie statute here looks,
at first view, hard and severe, almost like
some of the slave laws of our own country.
Hut we must take it in connection with the
other statute already recited and if that
expressly prohibits, under so severe a penal
ty, the destruction ol even a tooth, we may
be sure that this statute was not intended to
give license to cruelly. The Jews have al-
way understood the penalty here as death,
(compare (ien. 9. 5,0. Lev. 25: 21;)
and the intention of the statute probably is
to save the rulty master from being put to
death, unless tlie evidence le perfectly clear
that he has caused the death of the slave.
On this subject compare also the follow,
ing enactments: Lev. 19: lb. 21: 22,

The Ireaui that auppliee Ihe capital . el 2,1 37
Here is our work before us. We have
edulu malo from 21 to 15, and females from
16 to 13 as our capital. Divide this capi.
t:il into two classes, married and unmar.
ried. All children under 5 years arc to go
with their parents. Draw for the wife, then
select herdiusband. and give to them their
children under 5. Take of this class until
you have got 6,000 souls for the first emi
gration. Add 10 per cent each year for
five yeats ; then for every five years, add
10 iter cent on the annual emigration; and
the reader sees he is not only lessening the
capital, but he is lessening the stream that
supplies the capital every year. Or start
with a larger number than 6(tX0, and add
whut annual per centage you wish ; and
you can see how long it will be before you
find those in the U. S. are those who cease
to generate, and will shortly b in their
graves. In fifty years what would be seen
of Cie capital, or the ttream ? If you add
to the number who wuld be taken to a
foreign land to remain as slaves, then you
reduce the capital to be removed. Take
another plan. All bvr after 1S30 shall
be free, the males at 19 ; the female at 15.
Allow, or not allow, for those who will be
removed to foreign lands as slaves, before
the law goes into eu"cct. In 1863 the females
are fiee. in 18b9 the mtiles. Say the births
of the slaves are now 120,000 a year. Al
low that one half live to reach the years
they shall be free, which is 60,000. In
1900, fifty years hence, there would be none
but fiee persons in the land, except those over
70. Take of this (50,000, G.OOO, the first
year of emigration, which would leave 50,.
OCO to create capital ; but which would be
subjoin to removal at any time. Add 10
per cent to the C,000 for five years ; then
increase the per centage to 12 per cent for
the following five years; then increase it
for the following five years until it is 15
per cent on die fifieendi year, and let it there
stand, and in thirty years not only is the an
nual increase removed, but the capital there
has been increasing from the surplus left, is
so diminished, dial in die 20 yeais following
theie are none to be taken away according
to the law. Every year from the first year
of emigration, the capital is lessening, and
putting die interest of the removed capital
in Liberia. As to the expense of removal,
let the man and woman who go, be hired
out for two years, so that the man when he
goes is 21 and the woman 17. In no ca.v,
if marriage has been contracted, shall the
husband be separated from the wife. And
if die woman has a child let it go with her.
The hire will pay the passage, and give an
out-fit for husband and family. They can he
taken for $15, each adult. Allow 300
passengers to a vessel. Jay b.OOO are to
l Jcr; ?"d trip, will
fake them, fixing upon January, May, and
September, as the months for them to sail
to Liberia. Add the yearly per centage,
and you will add your additional ships.
According to our plans, the master gels pay
for raisin; the slaves w ho are set free : or

ADDRESS. , -
To the feoiit of Vresf Virginia; showing
that slavery i irturtovs to the public
velfare, and tltat tt may bt gradually
abolished, ivithovt detriment to the rights
and mterests of slaveholders by Merit
ItcrrsiR, D. D of Islington, Va.
. We avow the principle, tjal every Suite,
and every great division of a State, ought,
in a domestic matter of such importance, to
iudgo and act foe ibelf. We ditclahu all
intention to intenere wiin wave in rist
Virginia. We leave it to our brethren
there, to choose for themselves, whether they
will let the institution remain ts it is, or
whether they will modify it or abolish it, in
one way or in another. Their Jlave popu.
jation is relatively eicht time hs'iatse as
otMs. - The same remedy Tnay not be ex
pedient in such different stages of adbcise.
All that we ask of our Lastern breuiren, in
regard to this matter, is, that if West Tir-
ginia shall call for a law to remove slawiy
from her side of the Blue fudge, East I ir-
girua shall not ret use her consent, because
the measures may not be palatable toner-'
Heretofore no such scheme for West Vir
ginia only has been proposed among-us;
and no state has abolished slavery uj one
part of her territory and retained it in anoth
er. For diis reason some iersons nny at
first thought consider such a scheme m un
feasible. A State composed partly of free,
and partially of slaveholding territory,' may
seem to present a political incongruiti, and
to be incapable of conducting its punic af
fairs harmoniously, lo relieve the minds
of those who may feel apprchensbns of
diis sort, we offer the following sugsiions.
1. Free States and slaveholding States
have, during 53 years, lived peaceably and
prosperously under one lederal govern
ment. Sectional jealousies and occasional
jars have occurred, but without evi! conse-
Nodiing in the nature
need create difficulty, except the finiiin of
laws that may affect the rights and interests
of slaveholder. Dut an amendnrnt of die
constitution could easily provide frr the se-
curiiy of slaveholders in East Virginia
against all unjust legislation, arsing from
the power or the anti-slavery principles of
3. After such an emancipation law as
we propose, should be passed for Vest Vir-
. . ' 1 1 . 1
ginia, no immediate change wcuia uxe
place in the institution of slavery aiiong us;
except that masters would probab.y choose
to emancipate or remove Irom th Mate, a
larger number of slaves than heretofore.
As only the next generation of negroes
would be entitled to emancipation, the law
would not begin iu practical operation lor
21 years al least, and then it would opvrate
gradually for 30 or 40 years longer, before
slavery would be extinguished ii West Vir-
ginia. So that for many years the actual
slave interest among us would rot be great-
ly diminished. ! "
4. Theie is, and long has ben, in dif-
ferent parts of Virginia, every d?gree of dif-
ference, from the least to the neatest, 1.

ing interests of the people, lnsome pails,

No rean of common sense, who Las observ
ed thi l result, can doubt for a moment, that
terns have worked side by side for ages, un
der such equal circumstances both political
and phisical, and with such ample tune and
opportunity lot each to work ou; its proper
enects that all must ariruU the experiment
rtr- . . ...
tne system ol lice labor promotes the
growth and prosperity of States, in a much
higher degree than the system of slave la.
bor, In the first settlement of a country.
when labor is scarce and dear, slavery may
give a temporary impulse to improvement ;
bat even this is not the case, except in
warm climates, and where free men are
scarce and either sickly or lazy : and when
we have said this, we have said all that ex
perience in die United States warrants us tt
say, in favor of the policy of emnlorics
slave labor. ..
It is the common remark of all who have
traveled through the United States, Uiat thr
free States and the slave States eihibrTa,
striking conuast'lri their appearance. In
the old free Slates are seen all the tokens
of prosperity a dense and increasing popu-
lauon; thriving villages, towns and cities;
neat and productive agriculture, jrrowins
manufactures and active commerce.
In the older parts of the slave States
with a few local exceptions are seen, on
the contrary, too evident siens of sintmation
or of positive decay a sparse population
i slovenly cultivation spread over va.t fields,
hat are wearing out, among others already
worn out and desolate villages and towns,
"few and far between," tarely crowing,
often decaying, sometimes mere remnants of
wfiat they were, sometimes deserted rums,
haunted only by owls generally no manu
factures, nor even trades, except the indis
pensable few commerce and navigation
abandoned, as far as possible, to the people
of the free States and generally, instead
of the stir and bustle of industry, a dull
and dreamy stillness, broken, if broken
at all, only by the wordy brawl of politics.
But we depend not on general statements
of this sort, however unquestionable dieir
truth may be. e shall present you with
statistical facts, drawn fron public docu
ments of the highest authority. We shall
compare slave Mates with free Mates,
general and in particular, and in so many
points ol view, that you cannot mistake in
forming your judgment of their comparative
Density and increase of population are,
especially in the United States, both an ele-
meat and a criterion of prosperity. The
men of a State are its first element of jxjw-

that whenever there are men enough in a

whether in. or out of the house of rrfug.
They should huvo the power of enforcing the

They should hsve the power of apprehending

them to tho work-house ; and, at proper times,
of discharging Ibem.or.if they exhibit signs of
