WHAT THE SLAVE POWER IS DOING.
Tho Boston Commonwealth, discoursing of tho
present purposes of slavery, says :
Tho slave interest has three schemes which it is
now pursuing w ith great pertinacity. (1.) Tho !
slaveholders intend that tho Sunrcmo Court shall!
decide that thev may tuko their sluvos into tho free
Suites and hold thein there as safely as in tho slave I
States. Thev are usinir the Leinmon easo to secure1
h,.i. ,l,.,.iin. l-. Thev i.,-.l 1.. ,, all 1
such a decision. (.) They intend to open
our tree territory to tho mtroduc
Douglas Aebruska bill shows
n this direction. (3.) They
oinlort the African slave trade, by securing pay
ment i'or tho Amistud negroes. Some ot theuiuroj
neg.nn.ng ,o say tuts trauo miou m m, restored, anu
" morbid sontiuieutulUm."
Whnt but tender regard fur the African slave 1
trade induces members of Congress to speak and ;
voto iu favor ot paying tor those Amistad Alricans:
They wcro not slaves. Thoy hud just been kid
napped. Their case was curried to tho highust
Court in the land, which decided that thoy were
free, and that -am had no right to demand pay
for thum. And yet the slaveholders and the
Washington politicians, who so constantly trample
the Constitution under foot, and outlaw justice,
are bold and graceless enough to insist that Con
gress shall appropriate money to pay for them.
This can mean notliiiiL' but icsnoct uud natronnno
for tho Africun slnn trudo, uud an nctivo desire to
have it restored lor tne bcuetit 01 slavery in tins
country. Men who aro capablo of voting pay fur
those negroes, nro capablo of voting to rostoro tho
Africau slave trado.
