JOSEPH TREAT. Domestic Slave Trade--Fugitive Law.
Leonard llacon, I). I)., is writing a series of
lo'tors lo Ucrard Ilnllo.k, lq., in tlio i.iMii
it nl. From one of thcuc letters w extract the
following statistics In toward to tho domestic
slave trade and its relation to tho fugitivo !uw.
The Mlmlition of tho African slave-trade,
then, has had the ell'ect of binding the slavu
hnlding ntaten into one community, held to.
gether not merely hy the fai-t that they nil
have slaves, but much more by the mutual
dependence of the slave-hovers and the slave
sellers. Instead of the. African slave-trade
thern has grown up nit American slavo-ti adit,
with horrors of its own. The statistics of
Ibis "dreadful tiadu" nro lint easily got at.
You remember Iho alarm ol'souiliern sena
tors, when, in Iho plan for taking the census
of IrCs"), there Ind liecu inadvertently inserted
a ipicstinu or two by which furl were to bo
iincuilained concerning tho migration from
thn old states to the new; nml how peremp
torily they iiisi.-ted on suppressing nil in
piiry ivltich was likely lo levual what they
thought had I Titer be kept secret. Yet now
and llien some startling liid, primly suOieieut,
looms up li'o u I thai Valley of Iho shadow of
ili alii. 'nr example, its long nro ns IS'M,
Professor William H. Dew, of William nml
Mary College, in mi niL'iiiiieut against lliu
abolition of slavery which had be en pro
Mised in Virginia, proclaimed the fact lliat
tliu liigh-miinled "old ilomiiiioii" wan at that
lime exporting her own tialito population us
merchandise, nt the rate of (i 0(10 souls every

census loo, from one decennial period to an
other, notwithstanding Iho vigilancu wild
winch impertinent 1 unkee ipieslionn nic ex
cluded, reveals, lo Ihoso who " culciihite,"
some astounding facts.
In IsyO, for example, tho slme nmiuhition
of Virginia was. (in rniiud nundiers) J'J."i,(iOO.
iXine can iiniiiil Unit Iho slave poiulation ol
that state, in respect lo climate, looil,. treat

slave population of perhaps liny other stale
m lim t ttiiiu rrrtaliilv moro lavoralilv situ
ated than the aggregate, slave population of
inu l moil as n wlinle. r-uiro Ic il) llin slave
popiihition of the I'liion has increased from
LKW.OdO lo :i,!iH.()(;0. Had the slavo iioiiii-
laltoii of Virginia iucrensed nt llin samn rato,
Iho census of IrCO would have reiiorled from
ntali! Hrtl.COO slaves; whereiiH the number
nclually reluriied hy the census is only
W., leaving 411. 17'Jiinacco'inled liir. 'I'ho
uianmiiissiiiiis iu Viruiuia, during those thir
ty years, cannot have, been in u much greater
ralio to tho number of slaves, than the niaiiil
missioiiH iu the I'nion at large, for it must ho
remembered that, within Iho period iu on ca
tion, the abolition of slavery has been roil
siimmated iu New York and New Jersey.
Nor w ill the escape of fugitives account liir
miy portion of the difference between what
the slave population of Virginia is iu the
census of lfC0, ami what the general rato of
increase requires it to he ; for there in no rea
son to suppose that Virgiuin (not being n bor
der slate) loses more slaves by flight llian Iho
averngn of the slavo states generally. Make
the largest reasonable allowance for the few
slaves who, in company with their hereditary
masters, I nun mieraled, unsold, mid in un
broken tiimilies, from old Virgiuin to new
plantations in tho Houth-west; mid thorn-
miiuiiler will show you tho operation ol tho
Virginia elave-truilo for Ihcse thirty yenrs.
Hut the slave-trade in not carried on from
Virgiuin atone. In thn slato of Maryland,
the slave population, thirty yenrs ngo, was
107,000. 1 lie manumissions mid escapes are
much mni'u nunicroiia in Maryland than iu
Virgiuiu more numerous probably than lliu
averago for the whole I'nion. On thn other
hmiil, the numbe r ol hereditary musters emi
grating from Maryland lo iho Sonlli-wcht
with their own " people ' is probably less, in
proportion, than llie number thus emigrating
Iruin Virginia. With the inmost iillowuuco
I'oi diminution from llicse various causes, the
natural increase of the slaves in Maryland,
since It'.'O, must have been not far from 10U
per rent., Iho increase! liir thn w hole I'nion
having Ix'cii I OH per rent. At that rate, the
census for lH.'O would havo reported from
Maryland, 211.(100 slaves, instead ol which
it reports only IIU,:ltirl. .More than tho whole,
natural increase, liir these thirty years, has
been swalled up hy the slave-trade.
This American slave-trade, I said, linn
horrors of its own. Who tire the victims of
il? Not savage Africans, only n lew degrees
above Iho level of the brutes human only in
their capabilities ; but lialivo Americans.
They have been horn in n temperate climate ;
limy have been ucruslnmeil to labors com
paratively light ; they have lived under bond
age indeed, but where there is some chance
of their becoming free, or nt leant some hope
of freedom liir their posterity. They hnvo
some degree of civilization nnd of knowl
edge. Many of them, members of churches,
preachers perhaps of lliu Gospel to those of
their own class, have the sensibilities nnd
aspirations that nro developed by Christian
cultivation. Many of Ilium nre of u Anglo
Hiixou" lineage; uot a few of them with the
proudest nnd holiest blood of the cavaliers
coursing in their veins. Theso people lire
torn from nil the associations of homo mid
native anil, from nil domnslii! ties, however
sacred, from all objects of natural nlleetion
and natural duty, from all human hope thin
side of death. Manacle. I and fettered Ihr salb
keeping, driven in weary collies along iho
inland routes, or carried coastwise, iu the
floating hell of the slave-ship, they are swept
lo a bondage on which no hope of freedom
gleams; mid henceforth, with such masters
as tho chances oflrall'iu may give thom.they
nre lo luhor till death under iho fiercer sun
that ripens the cotton, or umid the miii.Mini
of tho rice ground and the cuun-field. And
who are tho agents of this traffic? Men
who, as -all southern gentlemen assure us,
are simply infamous tho very worm and
most detested cluss thut sluvory uud tho slave-
tradn engenders in society men whoso con
tact is shunned ns if il were infection.

WHAT IS MAM THAT THOU AHT MISKFUL OK
Perhaps you nro wondering what all this
has to do with a discussion of the lugitive
slave law. You shall see, if yon will be i;i
lienl. Let mo ask. Why did Congress pro
hibit thn African slave liiide ? Why follow
up that prohibition w ith one act lifter another
increasing in stringency till the impoitntioii
of n slave from Africa was mailt) piracy?
Was it the inmiilest duly of Congress to en
net those laws? Would it he nu outrage on
the moral sense of Iho nation nnd of thn
world to repeal them ? Then why has not
Congress provided a parallel ntrien id laws
against this infamous American slave-trade?
Why is it that the laws ngniust Iho African
slave-trade, have been permitted to become
ill effect a scries of measures for tho prolec
tectiou of lliu American slave-breeder against
foreign competition? 1.4 there any good
reason for such discrimination ? Arc such
men an llin slnvo-'nuling firm of Itruiii &
Hill any heller, or any less worthy of the
gallows, than a man w ho buys slaves on the
coast of All ien, except as the law which con
demns iho otic protects the other?
There ore two plain reasons, nnd no third,
why the American slave-trade, from one
slato to another, is not prohibited hy art of
Congress. Tin: first is that if a hill lor such
an net were introduced, tho L'uion would be
Immediately " ill danger," hy the " agitation,"
nnd the hill rnnscfpieiitly could nut puss.
Tho second is, that if such u law woro en
acted, it could not, in present statu of public
opinion nt the South, lin carried into execu
tion. J hern would be so mnnV way oH.
evading it, and indeed it would he so gener
ally regarded as an invasion of the saeied
right ol propei tv, that it would presently he
come n dead letter on tho statute hook.
Now I beg leave to say, that these two ren
sons aio cipiallv valid ngniust Iho fugitive
slave law of l.'iO. Tho enactment of urA rt
law on that subject, mid the nttemiil to carry
il into execution hnvo produced mid every
renewed attempt to execute it will infallibly
produce "agitation," the agitation of tliu
whole question of slavery iu till its relations
ami limitation, you know, makes it necc
sury for commercial men, mid patriotic, men,
mid eloquent men, nnd good men, to do ninny
(lungs Unit would otherw ise bo very disagree
able for tho snko of saving the Union. And
then lliu execution of such n law, violating
an it noes, every sentiment of jitstico and ol
sympathy with those who Miller, and hruak
ing down lliu bulwarks erected hy our an
cestors for tho delt'tiso of personal freedom,
in sure to lie resisted iu every method ol legal
or peaceful opposition; nnd a tier n few moru
mlcmpts, stirring the public mniil with deep.
er disgust mid indignation, it will npjicar thut
llin law iu litllu more than n dead letter.
Such a law ought not to havu been rum f'd
by a government too impotent or loo cow
ardly to lake any measure against lliu stu
pendous atrocily of the iiiterual klavu-traile,
And till Congress shall begin to exert Us
constitutional power ngniust thai trade at
least till it shall adopt some other policy than
thatol protecting tho domestic producer of
slaves against all loreigu competition, hy the
most eflectual discriminating duly that can
he conceived any extra cniistituliunr.l zeal
iu the way of giving positive aid lo the re
capture of fugitives, may very decently bo
The Constitution, as you will remember,
contemplates only tho rime of a fugitive from
"Hurvice or labor,'1 mid provides only that ho
shall hu delivered up to the necessity of per
forming the service or labor liom which he
has fled, ltut the fact is, tliu legislation of
Congress under lliu Constitution has been so
conducted that now tho fugitive dons not lly
from the mere obligation lo service or labor
imposed hy the laws of llie state which en
slaves him, but rather from another evil in
comparison with which the obligation In
life-long luhor, unrequited, on his master's
acres, is only n triflu. flu does not escape
from labor or service merely, hill from lliu
dreadful chance of falling into the hands of
the sluve-lrndurs. And when he is caught
by some huso device of a venul police, nnd
rily "delivered up" hy the sentence
of a petty officer fit for a business so degra
ding, he is never carried hack to his former
pluee, there to perform tliu service or labor
lo which he wan held under tliu lawn of that
stale, (which in what the Constitution con
templates and provides for; ) but hu is cur
ried lo tho sliivn-mniket, to n doom which
thousands would pronounce more terrible
than death. Butler mo to say that the Irn
mers of iho Constitution never intended to
make such a compact as .this. Our liilhers
verily thought that the Constitution gure nil
necessary security lor thn complete tupprts
lion of the slave-trade; but behold in Iho
grand new compromise of 18.10, thin fugitive
slave law is introduced, for the purpose of
making tho power of iho L'uion auxiliary lo
the conservation not of slavery only, hut of
that trafiio in slaves w hich, in the words once
used by Jefferson, is a continued "civil-war
against human nature itself."
How much occasion, think you, would
there bo for Iho recapture of fugitives, fioiu
slavery, if there were no slave-trade between
one slate and another? Thnt sl.ive-lrado is
w ithin the jurisdiction of Iho federal govern
ment; more c ideally go than thin business
of recnptuiing sluves; nnd I beg you, and
Ihoso who net with yon, to rememhei that
your constant agitation in behalf of this
fugitive-slnva Inw cannot hut hasten tho limn
when the peopln of the Union will demand,
ami will have, the suiinrcssion of Iho slave-
trade as tho legilimato and only method of
putting mi end to Ibis wearisome mid irritn
ling agitation for Iho recapture of the wretch
es who attempt lo escape from its vortex.

From the Penn, Freeman.
From the Penn, Freeman. "Garrisonianism, ' Infidelity,' &c.
In a recent nmiihcr of Frederick PongbirV
Paper we find n hitler liniii A. K. Dcmsler, a
lender of thn Wssleyan Church, in Luesville,
Cnrioll Co., Ohio, in which the writer, w hile
hu compliments ,lr. )ouglasn very highly
und invites hiin to visit the Ituckeyc Sate,
idhidcB to Mr. (j.irrisoii mid those associated
with him ns a set of infidels,' with whom
' those w ho esteem tho lSibln to bo tho re
vealed will of Cod cun liuvcr harmonize,"
" Uarthoiiionism hns Wen so mixed up with
iuiidvlity here, and claiming to bo the only Si
mon pure abnlitioniim in the hind, while n very
lew have been converted to its principle, mnny
havo been driven by it entirely awsy from tho
anti-slavery cause. They thought, if to bo
true abolitionists, it was necessary to repudiate
the llihlc, government, nnd all church orgnnizn
tinns ; tho mieritlre was too great, and coiuo- !
qucntly abandoned tho cause."
Now we know something about the his
tory of miti shivcry iu Iesvillc, and we af
firm that tho above language is in the highest
degree slanderous. The 'Ijarrisoiiians' who
have visited Leesvillu as lecturers, never
said or intimated that, "to he into abolition
ists' it wns necessary lo repudiate tho liible,
government mid all chnreli organizations."
They made no such foolish issue, nor nuy
other in tho least degree like il. They
did, however, present their views of Iho U.
S. Constitution and of the moral obligations
growing out of the compromises it makes
w ith slavery. They also dealt faithfully with
lliu Weslcyan Church, nnd showed bow it
was involved iu tho support of slavery by
tolerating its members in voting for sluvo-
liol lers, giving tliu liaml ol lellowship to
monsters of the Old Church, fee. , mid Ibis
was precisely what Mr. Demster mid his
friends could not hear. Instead of meeting
tin) issue un iy nun Honorably, tliey rutso llie
pro-slavery cry of ' infidel' against such men
ns W. L. (Jariison, J. V. Walker, II. C.
Wright, Parker Pill.shtny and others, and
liieauly tried to shut their meeting-house
against those failhlul friends of the cause.
It wan precisely the nnmo course which ban
been pursued hy the timo sei ving priesthood
in every part of llie laud. After till thin Mr.
Demster comes to Mr. Douglass with loud
professions of lovo to the slave, and asks
him lo go to Ohio and root out Iho ' Cariso
liian' tares! There in a great deal of sig
nificance in this fact when viewed in con
nection with passing events. Once Mr Doug
lass would not hnvo received in silence a
compliment lo himself ns n Christian, cou
pled w ith this stale slander upon the '(iiirri
Koninns.' Mr. Douglass' paper goes lo
Crent Ibitain, w here this letter of Mr. Dem
ster will no doubt ho used by John Hcohlo
nnd other enemies of tho Americnii Anti
Slavery Society, to bolster up their disuse,
mid whero tho silence -of Mr. Douglass in
relation lo its principle allegations will ho
regarded, probably, as a virtual endorsement
of ihrin. As a professed friend of the
American Society, Mr. I), owed it lo himself,
iu publishing Mr. Demster'n slanders, to
meet Iheui w ith n prompt rebuke.

We have already published, we Isdievc, a
