Wc add the following extinct from miiiilicf si of
tho scries !
Kentucky contains nbont twcnty-fivo millions of
acres of laud, and, according )o tho Auditor's Ito
port, the value of all the slaves iu the State is n lit
tin over !.r0,IKHI,(KSi. If, hy emancipation, the av
erage increase in the price of land kIiouIiI be two
dollars nn acre, thnt incrente would pay for all the
slaves in the Stnto. We have nodoulit thnt, if our
Comuinnwealth were rid of sinvery, tho enhanced
value of the soil would be nioro thnn equal to tho
nssesscd value of all the slaves.
Wo might add to the statistics we have now giv
en, nnd thus pile proof on proof of the fact that
sinvery is hostile to nil the industrial interests of
the Stale. Hut we have ndduccd enough to satisfy
any man of candid mind, that slavery has greatly
retarded tho growth of our Commoiiwenltli, and
prevented the development of tlio resource with
which she is so richly endowed.
Wc might run the comparison between nil tlur
freo States mid nil the slavo States ; nnd we should
find the advantage, in all important respect, in fn
vnrof tlie freo Stnte : not because of licttcr cli
mate, or better soil j but simply because of freedom
nbseneo of sinvery. Let us look nt facts n mo
ment. And in the fight of these facts, now tlnvo
holders of this State, can sec, to some small extent,
tlie evils they sutler boeauso of shivery.
Within tho Inst fifty yenrs, we have been taxed
fifty-nino thousand dollars for dead negroes exe
Millions more hnvo wo paid for slave-legislation,
and litigation concerning slaves. Thus have tho
poor nnd the majority been tnxed for tho interest
of the few nnd of the rich. Sinvery has deprecia
ted tho relative value of our lands far more thnn
tho vnlue of every slnvc iu the Stnto. It has pre
vented n home market, mid therefore grently dimin
ished the vnluo of our products. It hns banished
to freo Stntcs many thousands of our best citir.ens.
It ha driven many other industrious lalrer to
the poor lnmls of our States, and given the rich
portion to slavo monopoly. It has mndo labor dis
reputable, nnd therefore reared in our midst n nu
merous brood of idlers ni.d spendthrifts. These,
iu their turn, have invited tho gambling table, and
the grog-slio phence rampant vice in these respect.
It fosters a spirit of domination, lawlessness and
cruelty ; hence tho pistol nml bowie-knife. It holds
in our midst thousands of ignorant, debased nnd
defenceless slaves, inviting prostitutii n, mid, a a
result, licentiousness reigns. It hns squandered
