with rigor." (Lev. S3: 44-40.) This ia in
troduced by these 'words, "And tho Lord
apoka unto Moses in Mount Sinin, any ing.''
(See verae 1st.)
. According to tho construction of modern
Doctors of Divinity, and of ancient ones,
too, this passage does menu that God did
pnee authorize his chosen people to buy.nnd

to bequeath them as nn " inheritance,' aa a

in n word, as property to their children,
Will friend Selby tell us if there ever was a
lime when men could be the "chosen, holy
jieople of God," and buy, hold nnd use Im.
man beings as property ?
Will friend Selby construe the following,
"If a man smile his servant or his maid
with rod, and he die under his hand" (im
mediately) " he shall be surely punished.
Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or
two, he shall not be puiidicd; roa he is his
moset." Ex. 21 : 20, 21 .)
This pnssoge is introduced by these words,
"And God spake all these words, saying."
(Ex. 20; l.)
Modern nnd ancient Doctors of Divinity
ay thnt God in this passnge, did once bold
bis "chosen, holy people" guiltless when
they scourged their servants and maids to
fhjuth ; and gave as the reason why they are
pot to bo punished, thut the servants and
innids whom they hud whiped to death were
their money. Christendom says to friend
Selby, u Worship Him na n Cud of justice
and mercy, who, as the Kilile says, spake
the above words to Moses. Will he do it?
Will he condemn me and others who called
the Bible Convention, if we deny that a God

The Slave Trade in Cuba.
The attention of Lord John Russell has not,
it would seem, tern directed in vain to the
revival of the African slave trade from Cuba.
The admirality, we understand, have, on his
lordship's instruction at Foreign Secretary , is
sued orders for the despatch of same swift
steamers to the const of thnt island, to sro
whether if it bo not possible tn check, in tho
commencement, tho renewal of the infamous
trafHo in human beings, and at all events to
show tho Court of Madrid tho sense, wliiih
England entertains of the scandalous manner
in which tho SpnnUh colonial authorities disre
gnrd the dictates of humanity and the obliga
tions of treaties.
Driven from Brazil, the great slave-dealing
capitalists for a time sought repose inaEurnpe.
Dc So, Curncrio, Nctto, and Fonseca curried
their ill gotten wealth to Portugal, and the
persons whom its former colony had rejected
Portugal hat ennobled ! Do Su hat been crea
ted the Baron of Villa Nova do Minho Angclo
Carnciro Viscount Lourct j and on Netto wat
conferred the Cross of the Order of Nossa Sen-
hora do Conceicao. Whether these particular
individuals havo returned to their old habits
and praclicca we know not, but certain it is
that for some time past arrangements have been
made in Cuba, by persons of great exporience
and capital, to fill up by fresh importations
from unhappy Africa the void which cholera
had mado in tho slave population of that is
land. Tho first evidence of this movement was
teen in tho ahipyardt of Baltimore and other
American portt. Thence were despatched, not
to Havana, but to tho minor and lets frequented
portt of Cuba, clippers, such as only can hope
to escape tho vigilance of our cruisers. These
met with a ready salo in the island. The
Spanish authorities closed their eyes to theso
tigniticant preparations, tod rejected as imper
tinence sll prorfcrcd information on the subject.
It thus becsmo only too evident that the pres
ent captain-general was ready to wink at, per
haps to profit by, the traffic. The fittings for
these ships wcro despatched in other vessel and
froDi other countries, to the coast of Africa,
there to be transferred to the clippers as oppor
tunity served. And the hope is that, tailing
light and unequipped from Cuba, the clippera
will elude the provisions of the treaties under
w hich, when equipped, they may be seised.
It U to arrest this iniquitous scheme in ita
first outburst, that the Admiralty now ordcra
additional steamers to tbe eoasl of Cuba. And
though we have never, aa readers know, been
favorable to the largo expendituto that has for
so many years been going on along the western
and eastern coasts of Africa, we are aboubt
to take any objections to this temporary rein
forcement of the Cuban squadron. For, off the
eoaat of that island, a check, it is possible, may
ba givea to what ia quite impoMibl effectually
to repress on the two shores of tho great Afri
can peninsula) and it ia not inconsistent either
with the honor or the past exertions of Eng
land, for her government, when to near, as U
wat anticipated, the triumph of her anti-ilave
trado policy, to regard with indifference or in
dolenco these monstrous proceedings of the
planters and govornment of Cuba.
Better etcn that tho "Lono Star" of Ameri
ca should revolutionise Cuba) that the su
thorlty of tho Court of Madrid should bo ex-1
pslled from itt most valuable remaining colony
than that it should be allowed to renew in
all ita ancient abominations the outrages on
Africa. And this, it is to be hoped, Lord John
Husscll, and hit forthcoming successor, the
Esrl of Clarendon, will plainly tell the Court
of Madrid. The British nation and govern
mcnt can take no interest in tho retention of
Cuba by Spain, whilst Spain refuses to do,
which recent experience has demonstrated sho
can easily do suppress and terminate the slavo
trado in that inland. It ia usulcra longer
arguo or tn rcmonstrato w ith such a court as'
that of Madrid ; fur reason and remonstrance,1
it is now indisponsablo to substitute a deter
mination that cannot ba disregarded.
Unlike Brazil, Cuba is a compact and well-
organised country ; unliko the Brazilian, the
Cuban government has always been, and still
is, a strong, powerful and despotic, government J
unlike Brnxil, Cuba has police an army and a
coast guard to enforce its policy ; and yet lira
ail. far lest favorably situated in all theso re
spects than Cuba, bat tcrminatsd tho slave
trado. It it idlo trifling, therefore, to say that
tho court of Madrid carmot, if it havo the dis
position and tho resolution, achieve what Braxil
hat accomplished. But it has not the disposi
tion. It is by Cuba, and tho moans of corrup
tion it furnishes, that tho court of Madrid Is
able- to carry on that system of domostio mis-
government which is tho curso and blight of
It was under tho vigorous and free constitu
tional system of Espartrro, that tho African
slavo trado wat for a white suppressed In Cuba j
and until constitutional government bo njnin
restored, our cruisers may check, but they will
not be ablo to terminate, this infamous t radio,
unless tl'io court of Madrid is brought to its
senses, and taught that treaties may nut be
wrecked liko tho hopes of bond-holdon.' Af.
proving then, of this step at a temporary
measure, Lords John Husscll and Clarendon
must go further, if they desire to bo perma
nently successful ; and attack tho slave trade
whero it really receives its impetus in tho
camarilla of Madrid.
This important branch of enmmcrco is re

lent her muse to the desei ipliou of tho hopes
and fears inspired by Love, mid many of
her poetical cllitsiotii are characterized by
much beauty, feeling and fire. Thespiigbt

scarcely Imve detracted from the merit of
