The Question of the Hay--, lore t on.erva
live Testimony.
Hon. G-orvEßxarn Kkmblb, of New York,
Inn letter to theeleciors of the ninth Congres
sional District of tbat State, presents " th.
question of the day" in a most lucid, impres
sive and manly style. Thin noble letter, and
the speech of Charles O Connor, -.*.[., are
Worthy of the best days and the best men of
the Republic. "Why," exclaims Mr. I-K.mi-.i.k,
••should we enter ui>on a rru.sade against the
Institutions of our sister States I They have
done us no Injury, but great good: tiny have
infringed no l_w___ctiug us, and iv maintain.
leg tbeir rights upon the floor of Congress
bave borne themselves strictly within the
limits of tbe Constitution."' "With them the
question is not whether slavery is riglu or
wro-.g in the Abstract—whether it I_»> consist
ent with the I mere-ts of humani'y to emanci
pate from four and a .j natter to tour and a ball
millions of ignorant slaves, unac. ustomed to
and incapable ot self-government—whether,
if otherwise desirable, it would inure to their
benefit, as il certainly would to ihe destruc
tion of the white population, find the desola
tion of tbe country. With tbem it involves
life and deathand thedearest Interests of man.
It is, therefore, not a question for argument,
but action; and it behooves every right-minded
man in the free Stales, who holds his alle
giance to theC_.iistitution,aiid loves theCnion
as the source of all our unexampled prosperi
ty aaa nation, to look at it in its true light.
nnd before it is too late to arrest it ior these
nggressions upon their tranquility and htippi
ness, which have already alienated tbe mind-
Mi exa.pera'ed the passions In the slave
Slates against us, must otherwise, sooner or
later, eventuate iv a dissolution of our gnat
and glorious Confederacy."
Mr. KEMBi-Ethen refers to the ignorance in re
lation to Southern institutions which prevails
in the Northern States, and fives tin- result
Of his own observations in visiiing the South
He says with truth, that in all ages the negro
has been a slave, but nowhere una slavery
ever existed in a form so mild and beneficent
as that of the United States; nowhere have
the lights of the slave been so protected bj
Wise and equal laws: nowhere his physical
wants co abundantly supplied: nowhere his
moral and intellectual improvement so eared
for; and nowhere can the Increase, which i

country, be compared with it. If has been
double that of t'ngland, and treble that of th.
Continent of Europe in the same lime—a re
sult that could not have taken place under.,
tyrannical and oppressive system of ga
vernment, aud is the best refutation ib_
can be offered to the falsehoods and ezag
gerations of abolitionism. Slavery with at
Is very different from that which former
ly existed in the Hritish West Indies, whir
noountry establishment is still culled a pen,
from a prison in which the slaves were al way
confined for the night; or in Cuba, where flu
same practfce .till prevails on all the largSl
estates, and to which even the Chinese, who.
under false pretences, to the disgrace of hu
manity, bave been induced to emigrate,an
equally subjected. Under suchcircnU-Binnce.
any natural increa-e could hardly occur, and.
accordingly, the number has only been kept
up by importations Irom Africa. Baron Hum
boldt estimated the whole number of slaves
imported into the English West India colo
nies, from tha commencement to tbeexpira
tion of the trade, at two millions one hundred
and thirty thousand. In carrying out the act
of emancipation the emancipated slaves paid
for by the government was about 000,000,aad
the returns gave about !GU,COU tree colored in
all the colonies—together7llU,Uoo—<hawfal de
ficiency. With us an entirely different BJ stem
prevails." Mr. Kkmiili_ then describee in de
tail the mode of supplying the wants, provid
ing for the health, comfort, and religious in
etruction of the slaves, winding up by saying
tbat "a happier people than the slaves of tin
South would be difficult to find ; and Instead
of pitying the blacks —so much better off than
the daily laborer with us—l f»el sympathj
for the whites who are compelled to think for.
nnd take care of them, for ihey are thoughtlest
and excitable, and easily let! estray, although
the crimes that disgrace our Northern ciue.
are rare among them."
Mr. Kkmiu.e quotes Mr. Gallatin la a
statement which ought of itself to arrest tin
attention of all men in the North or England
Who honestly believ. that the slaves are badly
treated in the Southern State-. Mr. ________.
'IIN, after the most carelul researches, maker
the number of slaves imported into the United
Stales up to ihe suppression ol the slave trade

Caby, including Louistunu, states it at 390,01 v

It Is estimated that the census ol 1860 will
not give less than for the colored pop

fectly unknown in the history of the race, and,

of abolitionism.

The Plan te Rescue Jo tin Brsvvn.
The idea of an extensive combination to re..
cue Jchb Brows ha. been greatly ridiculed
by the Black Republican Journals, and the
prompt nnd vig ,-r. ma precaution* of Governor
Wibr made the subject of much affected mer
riment. It now turns out that, beyond all j
doubt, a combination existed olsnlßcientnmg- j
niuitle to warrant the steps which were taken j
by the late Executive, and thst It is owing to !
hl« decided and thorough performance of his I
duty that the most dangerous and formidable \
insurrectionist lv the I"nite.l State* did not i
escape the just penalty of his crimes. We
gave in yesterday'K paper the remarks of A. -

We had no Idea that the Black Republican
. xchl tjt.er waa in such a deplorable condition.
Moot of the surplus funds, tbat might have
dona good service in SawaitD'e campaign ol
i-(in, were probably expended in Jona Baows B
campaign of H*s9. Doubtless they bow wish
they bad ihelr money back again. The Tribun.
aaya the Republicans have the most voters,
nut the smallest amount oi money. This is
hard. The principle, it thinks, is ~n one side,
hut the weight of purse on the other !"•
.idediy a bad prospect for the Black Republi
cans. Perhaps one object of Mr.BnWA___*B
visit to Europe waa to raise funds for tbe next
campaign. In ilns connection, it is slated by
s London letter v.iiter that British officials
have determined to appropi iateaboul amillion
of dollars in tbe support of a Black Republi
can candidate for ibe next 'Presidency, hoping
thereby to bring aboui a dissolution oi the
Union, and bring about an alliance betweea
King Cotton nnd Qneen \'i. tokia.
The Impending « ri«is.
As a sample of the ie. ling:- aud opinions oi
the public mind iv Wei tern Virginia, we pub
lish the following letter from a gentleman of I
a culm nnd reflecting mind, and conservative
disposition, and,who is, moreover, 'i ma ioi

community where he resides. That commu- j

ebullitions of feeUng as any in the world. Thia

it was addressed, tbe author has consented i
