It give a condensed view cf slavery in Missouri ,
which the writer thinks is rapidly declining, and
dastiacd eventually to pass awny. Tho position
land tunics of Missouri, render slavery necessarily
tmnrontable on her soil. Thu influenco of internal
Improvements, nnd tho Influ of foreigners is fust
tending to tho destruction or slavery. It is quoted
laying in the Stato, " that every German emi-
grant displaces three slaves, and every Irishman
which he thinkniM far from tho truth. The;
that slaver is to fade awnv in tho State,

or course thn political parties ot tlia PUUe will act
in accordance with its policy. But "politically it
may be safely set down that three-fourths of tho
State would vole ngainst slavery, wero tho question
to como up tlirrettt slavery or no slavery in Mis
lftiirl." Of the correctness of this opinion, the
election of Thomas II. Benton is considered ns one
'point of evidonco. Others aro nlo enumerated.
But prominent object of tho work is to counter
act tho plot now in progress of dovclopement, lo
Itbrogale the Missouri Compromise, and admit
Nebraska as a re Stil, to tho Union. Should
this be done, the sluve interest in Missouri will be
'most unfortunately fortified, and tho dcvelopenient
of those causes which are tending to freedom in
that State, essentially retarded. Hence, tho whole
lave interest in the Stiilo is nlivo and active with
fierce jealousy aroused. And hence, too, the ne
cessity of vigorous actiou to counteract this move
ment, by all the friends of freedom. With such
action, the whole froo clcmout of Missouri earnestly
Tuoro are thoso who think lliero is no danger of
violation of this Missouri bargain
But w hy not
What are tho facts T
In lS'JO iMiflsouri npplied fur
admission to tho Union. The north w ished no more
lave States, and demured to her admission ns a
dnttkolding Stnte. The south blustered, and threat
ened to dissolve the Union. Henry Clay caino with
his Compromise. It was this : That if tho north
would yield Mi's fi'wie th'tt onec the south would
ask no mora. If tho north would admit Missouri
with her clearly defined huund.iries, as a slavo Statci
the whole of tho Louisiana purchase north of SO"
30s north latitude, should forever bo free territory.
In tho language of tho compromising law t
" In all that territory ceded by Frunce to the
United States, under the name of Louisiana, which
lies north of 30 30v north latitude, not included
within tho limits of the Stnto contemplated by this
act, tlaerry aittl involuntary tervitmle, otherwise
than in tho punishment of crimes whereof the
parties shall havo been duly convicted, thall ., und
it hereby prohibited Jureecr."
Here was a positive pledge on tho part of the
South, that thev would ' Jmvr" refrain from
molesting freedom in every other part of thu Lou
isiana Torritory. But only tixlcen ycurt passed,
before Missouri found it convenient to make the
Missouri rivor bcr western boundary, in.-.lead of
the original line. And Congress in violation of
tho compromise of lKO, consented. Thus was
added to tho state nnd to slavery, a tdrip of terri
tory, running from a point ut tho South, to sixty
miles in width at iho North, and of which have
been formed six now comities, vviih a present slave
population of 4500 souls. The North fulfilled her
infamous stipulation to tho letter. The South was
false and portidotis to her pledge to freedom, ns
he always has been, ns she is plotting with firm
determination again to be, in tho case of Nebraska.
If there was nnv f.iith to be placed in slavehohling
promisos, or in the cuactuieats of n slave governed
Congress, in favor of freedom, theo 4,500 slaves
would be immediately cniancipa'ed, and tho west
ern trianglo declared free, by a re-annexation
Such in substance, is tho statement of tho writer
oq this questiuu. We append tho closing para
graph of ono of his lettors in regard to it. Wc
shall make further extracts hereafter.
But passing that point, let us ask, Is this triangle,
when added to Missouri, freo or slave territory?
That there arc slaves there, and that it is now an
ally of slavo interests, nrc indisputable facts. But
' the question is, Bid the addition of this tiiangle
Missourf change its free character ? Can one cas

racily indicate its abrogation? But. can Congress
' pass any act that shall be jfrpetnulf Men, in this
world, make bequests, endowments, nnd deeds,
.which aro never to bo changed which express the
will of the donor, or conveyor. There aro limes
iu govori'iuout, w hen thu sumo stable kind of ac
tion is desirubie, when great principles nro to
established, and deeds performed which w ill forcv
. er result in good. Circumstances chango ; opin
ions niter; and this is so common, in a world
where the future is all hidden, that it is a rare
thing, that such language as that of tho Missouri
Compromise is introduced. In our Indian treaties,
in refcrcuco to laud titles, the samo construction
of liinguagn is used. A time came in tho affairs
of our country, when every thing demanded that
permanent, enduring enactment should he passed,
. and it was doun. What was that enactment?
. That Missouri, with certain boundaries, should
admitted as a slave Statu. Mark it well! Govern
ment did not promise to add territory to that Slato,
. nor to maintain tho supremacy of slavery there.
. No; it only said to Missouri, "You may brand
tho curso upon your own forehead, nnd we will
' receive you to the Union ; but wust and north
you, thero shall forteer bo uo slavery." Cun
L'aitcd States muko a permanent enactment t
ita word good for even 20 years? I do not know
. or remember any I'nited States enactment, excopt
this, which was designed to be a perpetual statute,
beyond the possibility of chungo. And yet, this
0ioe been trampled upon, in the grossest manner.
ii our government uosirauier
to live under it? If it is, why not maintain its in
ttegritT? Why make it a liar, iu tho ono thing
tallothers, in which it has given nut its word, and
.declared it will not recall it? Shame to the south,
(burning and eternal shuuie, that, for a few acres
" of ground,. for a slight odvuntug,?, they should
.quietly and stealthily attempt to violato the Mis
Hsesiri Compromise, a compromise framrd
themselves, and putted for tiienisolvos, and thut

A Frumvr. Slave Case ix Ixhiaxa. Porno timo
in April last, n negro man commonly known
'George," wns arrested at Washington, la., nt the
inslnncoofa Mr. Bice of Kentucky, as a fugitive
slavo. I pon an exiiiiiiniitii.il of the subject before
a magistrate, and subsequently before Judge Clem
cuts, the negro was irivei. unto Bice. 1'he nvi
demo produced on tho trial was of a most positive
character, identifying (ioorgo ns tho properly of
llico. vi itnesscs tesliheu to marks on tho negro
person, which woro subsoriio nlly found tube as
stated. Before being taken awnv, and while un
der arrest, (ioorge mado a confession to some of cur
citizens, to the effect that he belonged to one Gor
don, of .Mississippi, from whose service ho had
escaped. A letter containing tho statements of this
was forwarded to Gordon in Mississippi
tho negroes directions. Bice having obtained pos
session of George, carried him to Louisville, and
there sold him. it appears, to a "trader," who took
li i in to Memphis. Meanwhile Bico went to bis
liomc, sonievvnere in tno interior u nemucxy, mm
wroto back to this place, stating that (ieorgo w as
work on a certain farm in tho neighborhood, and
well contcntod. I' pon receiving the letter contain
ing tho negro's confession, Gordon of Mississippi,
or somo one claiming to be that person, camo
here and asserted that (Jeoruo belonged to him.
'Gordon claimed to hare in his position evidence

that would clearly establish his right to tho negro,
Ascertaining that 11 cor go IlilU been InKen lo Iven
tucky, (lordon followed hint and finally traced him
to Memphis, where, upon a writ of replevin, Goorgo
was recovered by (iordon, who (as it appears from
letters recently received in this town) has taken
l.lin to Mississippi and put hiin to work on a cotton
plantation. Thus the matter stands nt this time.
Tho above uro the facts in tho case, as given in the
Washington (la.) AVim of December 10. The
wholo aft'air will uudergo a legal investigation, nnd
Mr, Bice will be. summoned hero to answer to

We think this excellent middle position has been
very well illustrated already by Iho teaching of

on tho Southern Aid .Society, wo offered un opinion
that tho true antoi'onistio parties iu the contest eon

a sin against Uoil und a crime against man,
those who defend it as an institution sanctioned
tl.a Bible, and thut, cro many years, ull tho com

To this tho Emittclist demurs, nnd the editor
there is a "golden mean" which most

This, we suppose, is holding fast to the golden

see, of the new and great discovery of tho "middle
fiassngo" in morals. This neutral torritory is
aid down in tho Saviour's obart, fur he taught that,
