of nny kind, nlbeit n good deal of fuss is mnde
about them, lsubti.it to the judgement of every ,
honest man thnt this is not the class to colonise.
But what class then?
We answer remembering nur second considera
tion that class which excites the mnstdisturbai.ee,
is most useless, and most inexpensive to rentorsv
Now ns there nro only sonio toO.flOO tlarcholdtrt,
and these aro constantly ere. ting n disturbance in
our country; threatening to destroy our national
prosperity as they n.c i.i no use mining lis, (the
resources of tho South being host developed hy the
blackmail,) nn d ns they occupy a great deal of
Territory which might be better employed, as Ihey
consume without producing, nnd hence nre pauper
it become p.ilpably evident that Ott'j art the clatt
lo tvlonite. Wo uie the morn continued in this
opinion when wc refle t that they cut. be removed
at so much less expense than tho ftmr million
colored people in nur Kopuiilie. mis last consid
eration will strongly appeal to every worthy Yan
kee in the land.
Now having ascertained what class we should
colonize, nnd in arriving at that fact also having
embraced our second consideration (by linding thai
tho class designated can be removed with the lonst
possible expenses as to their ovn removal, much
better at least thai, enn the free colored people in
Virginia) it only remains to speak of our last con
sideration, vis ; that their removal should be im
mediate. Never was thoro n more auspicious timo for com
pleting the benevolent enterprise of their removal
than the present. They nro just now agitating
tho Nebraska question nllcr a vety dnngerou
million they will probably create contention con
cerning tho leriitoiy squired by tho Gadsden
treaty, and distract the country en a Southern
rout in tho Paeillc All theso circumstances in
dicate the unerring justice ff their immediate
colonization. Tho country will be pacified, and
many Inmost wen restored lo their rights, and all
this Continent bcnelited.
We cannot forbear to mention another great
advantage which will nriiofiom selecting this class
lo colonize. Our Government having uluays ovin-.
eed so ready n deuro to uid tbeui in every way,
it is not imrensoualilo to suppoiu that our Culled
States vessels would be sent to convey then to the
country to which thev inicht emigrate.
We will not say wiiilher they should go. But
we may express nn opinion that Ihey would net
find Liberia desirable on account of the prejudico
there prevailing against their color. We do not
know but Labrador would bo w!l adapted to their
constitution and habits.
ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW.
The New York Eiening Post, Aibnny Atlas,
and other pi.pers, very justly present the Nebraska
plot as a 'fraud, do tignod to cover a fraud.' It pro
fesses lo leavo tho cslul lithmciit or rejection of
slavery, to what has been net inappropriately call
ed, tho "tqitatier tucereiijuhj.'' That is, tho men
who shall first rush into the territory nfter the
passngo of tho jill, tlm'.l determine tho question
of thc cxi-lcnco or nun existence of slavery in that
vast territory. Of vourso no reasonable effort
vrould be loll untried to sucuie a controlling num
ber of slaveholders or thoir tools among these
squatting sovereign... True they might in this be
disappointed, ns they were in the t.n.o of Califor
nia. But the proximity of Missouri and Arkniisa
would render tl.ii improbable.
But this is onhj v inj'es.iit)n. The bill doc no
such tiling- ( ttcUtallij etlulUJie) tluetrij on itrri
luri, teJiere couyi ts lias o;ic esen iatd its power tty
uLolinh il. It does not leavo tl.o question to the
decision of the inhabitants. And tho truo uatnt
of the bill is, not fine for tho establishment of a
govcrn.ue.it f.r Nebraska, nor p.eu one fur the
