thnt the Indians now own negroes, but tho high

As no wickedress Is too gigantic, so none ia too
contemptible and nienn for slavery to nt tempt in
hor own extension and support. Wo noticed last
week, the attempt now making In Alabama, to in
crease the number of slaveholders among the smnll
property holders of that Stnte. Tho object is lo
enlist a greater number in its support, and thus
diminish the risk and danger of sluvcholding.
For slaveholders nre sensible, if nobody elso Is,
that their numbers nre small, their position danger
ous, and they the natural enemies of nil humnnity
besides. Hence, it becomes them to fortify them
selves on every hnnd. Hcneo, the Arkansas slave
holders nro nwnko to the danger of freedom from
