Mr. Editor: Fiom the late action of
Congress and most- of the Legislatures
of the non-slaveholding States, I take
It. for granted the Not th will persist in
their aggressions upon the South, by ex
cluding her from all territory lately ac
juired by the blood and sufferir,g of her
noble sons; and by abolishing the insti
tution of slavery in all other places over
which Congress claims to exercise exclu
sive jurisdiction. 1 say 1 take it for,
granted, because tyranny has rarely
been known to relax its hold until bro
ken by violence or severed by the sword.
I also take for granted, that the South
once nearly her equal in numbers, and
ever vastly her superior in moral and in
tellectual greatness, has not fallen so
low, as to submit like a craven to the
degradation of having her rights wrest
ed from her without a struggle. Under
this aspect of the case, a collision seems
inevitable-it may be bloodless; but e ith
er peaceable or bloody, it ipay sever
the bonds of thik Union. It is then
ti*M'd fo'r 'ds to throw aside all sickly ien
tiniehtality bpn this subject, and look
the eVcht boldly in the face.
As a ihember of a political partner
ship, in'to 'Vhich each State entered as
in eAual and sovereign, any State has
an unquestionable right to secede peace
ably and quietly, wh'enever in her opin
ion the infractions of the Constitution
have become so flagrant as .to be borne
n'd longer with patience, and honor to
heiself. This right has never yet been
denied in the South-indeed it is insep
arable from and Conititutes the chief
conservative feature in our admitably
framed government. I iepeat, singly
this secession can.take place, but jointly
with others the pnd In Viewv will be more
certainly and efTectball secuied But
will the right to resist these aggressions
of the North, by the secession of two,
three, or even dll tho aggrieied Staiest
be peaceably acquiesced in ? It may
ber buAntc . ang.ihatit will 4)1.
It is scarcely to be hoped that that spir
it of fanaticism which burned. witches in
New England, and drove Roger W1l
llams into exile; and w%hich has at a lat
er day mturdered our Southern citizens
for claiming their property under the
constitution, will relax its hold without a
struggle. It is then the part of pru
dence to prepare tor the worst--to cal
culate the consequencea i,nd !ook to our
resources in the evefit of hostile colli
sion. Fortunately for our purpose the
late report of tit Commission of Pa
tents furnishe data upoh which to base
a calculation. From this it appears that
the population of the slaveholding States
proper, leaving out the" breeches pock
et," is now as fol!cws:
N. Carolina, 780,000
S. Carorlina; 620,000
Dist. Columbin; 48,000

e r an agrgregate of 8,843,000 souls.
F Xrom~ this should be de ducted the 3,000,

most readily command them in the mar
kets of the world, in our Corn, Whent,

Cartwright, in his able and unanswera
ble essay upon ihe subject of Slavery,
itifo nis us, that both in the Revolution
and War of 1812, the British govern
ment under the impression that the
South, from her peculiar instittutions"
constituted the weaker portion of this
Confederacy, directed its attacls par'
ticularly to this quarter. But being most
signally foiled and unable to understand
the why and wherefore thereof, they in
stituted inquiries through thir Consuls
and secret agents, the sum and iubstance
of which wbs embodied in a.pamphlet
for the special benefit of the English
aristocracy. While in London, a copy
of this pamphlet accidentally fell into the
leaned gentleman's hands, and ihe re
sult of thi' enquiry seems to lav,e led
our traniatlantic neighbors to the follow

relation, that during hostile invasions of
of the country, he can be safely entrust
ed,with the protection of the wife and
children, and to some extent the culti
vation of the soil, during the master's
absence in the field of active service.
Consequently that enervation, resulting
from the prostration of the Agricultural
operations of countries engaged in war,
does not result to the same extent where
slaves are the labot ers. as in those,where
every one is liable to be called into ser
vice at'any moment.
The necessary result theredf, of this
state of things is, that the sinews of way
are never exhausted in countries like
ours, consequently the war can be in
definitely protracted, until the.invadeit

inoy6siffn - to tlie, usting opinion on
the 'U1ect,:1 I maintain that the South
is g;r-Oy the superior of the North in
wealth, in proportion to the number of
their citizens respectively; and this will
appear by a comparison and progress of
the white people of the rr:spective sec
ions. The North; and even many inl
South, ha;ve assumed a decline in niano
factuies and commerce, to be a decline
of gener;il prosperity. This is an r-rr.r.
The policy of the Federal Government,
and the domestic institttions of the
Soutlhrn States, have indeed been un
favorable to ihb lattet in dhdse pursuits,
but the agriculture of the South has
maintained and advanred in prosperity
beyond that of any other people.
"Let us first eiamine the condiion of
the white peopl ofihe two sections.
. "The State of Massachusetts, fot in
stance, is geneially regarded as one of
the most successful and flourishing of
the North and is contstantly referred to
by the newspapers as a model for all
the others, and very frequently as a tatunt
to the Southern. If, however, we com)
r pare this favorite of the Noith, with
Maryland, a gouthern State of similar
territotial extent, and one of the least
s Southern gtates, we shall fir,d the latter
. to be decidedly superior ii weahl in
proportion to the number of her citizens.
According to the census of 1840, Mary
land had a tree population of 380,282,
and in 1847 her property das assessed
at $202,272,650. Massachusetts in
1840 had a poprikation of 737,699, and
her property now is only $300,000,000.
rTaking these t.wo assessments as the
- basis of compat ison, and it appears that
the aberage property of a free person im

now consides the facts. IIer free popu

a as 790,8101, aimd her property is not
-about $600,000,000. The poptilao
- of New York in 1840' was 2,428,921
e and in 1847 her property wa's asses
"sud at $632,699,993. Tho averag
,property of a fiee wvhite person in Yii
' ginia is $7518; in New York it is oni
t$260, or a little more than one-third.
it "Virginia instead of being poor, ar
c-in need of til e pity of the much poor'
population a the Nor:h, is perhaps il
ichesr com tinity in the wvorld. TI
'e average *e th of the people of Gre
ritain mayne buan,tt the same,- but it
not near so pr6ductive, and I think it
demonstrable that no people .on- earth
live in a condition of greater -comf6rt
.ancf enjoyment than those of Virginia'.
Nor is there any reason to fear a decline
in her wealth. A ccording to the census
returns of 1840, Virginia,. with a popu
lation of less than- one-third of that of
New York, atd a dapital something les,
produced from'the %arious bran'chei of
her industry. more than half th'e product
of Newv:Yorkl and as the total popula.,
tion of Viiginia,slave and free, is only
about half that of New York, it' is clear
that, after deducting tihe annual consump
tion of both, Virgihia will have a la1ger
proportional surplus remaining to aug
ient the stock of her-permanent pro
perty. - * t re* dtve
"Ifn6w we cxamine the reldt.Ve Con.
dition of'the new States the same results
are apparent. The States of Kentucky
and Phio lie side by side, and .are of
similar climate, fertility and cxtent
the proportion of rich land being, how
ever, less in Kentucky. - Their age is
aso.nearly the same, Kentucky having
been admitted as a State about eleven
years before Ohio. O'hio is corisidered
the most prosperou.s.State in the lWest,.
and.is continually conitasted with.Ken
tuckyf6i the ptrpose of illustrating the
blighting effects 'of slavery on ffie latter.
Let us see what reason.
'In,1840, Kentucky had a free popu
lation of 597,570, and property amounts,
according to- her tax assessmenof 1848,
to -about 272,847,696. Ohio, in 1840,
had a population of 1,519,457, and.her
ssessment last year wat$421,067,991.
The average- value of property belong
ing to each free' person m Kentucky is
$456-in Ohio it ii dnly.$27$, or more
ilan'on.-thi6rd 1ess; and-as the popula
tion of Ohio is, riowv still greater in-pro
portion to that of Kentucky than in
1840, the dift!ren'e'in favor of the jttei
is still more.
"Nothing-is mo.e conimon than the
r!tinti. w:f lan i d n.Ken.
much lower than in Ohio. I have ex
nmined :he Auditor's reports of both
States, which present in detail the valua
tion of all their lands. In Kentucky
the average value is aboit seven dollars
per acre, in Ohio it is about eleven, and
I an very confident that the quality of
Ohio land is to that eitent superior; as
itn Ktu :ky there is a large mountain
region tor whiich Ohio has nothing etuiv
alert. Thus, then, it i5i manifest that
the free people of thes!aieholding States
-of those States whiih are unifo:mly
regarded as ihe victims ot poverty and
ruin-are all richer, much richer,. than
those of the non-slaveholding States
which have been usually considered as
the most tlourishing nwnbeis of this
conederacy, and the most prosperous
communtis the wur!d ever saw. Such
at least is the testimony of official docu
ments on the subject-the highest au
thoriv that exists. For 1. have taken
nearly all these btatements of the pro
perty of the States alluded to, from the
assessments made by public officers, for
the collection of taxes. Of the accuracy
of the valuations, it is of course impos
sible tu speak froni personal knowledge;
ut those of Ohio and Kentucky are, ac,
cordIng to my opportunities of obset va
ion, as ne'ily correct as need be de
sired. Aiid as to the other States the
cimances of error are perhaps as great
on one side as the other.
"In the slaveholding States, slavs
are of course included in the p)roperty.
This is sometimes objected to, but I
tink witiout reason. .The question is,
which is the miost profitable investmet
of capital--in land and slaves-as h
usual in the slaveholding States-or ir
land alone, or commerce and matnufac.
tures, as in the Northern States I Ani
this question is almost universally deci
ded in favor of the latter. In the Sotith.
accoiding to its laws, the slave is a~
available to huis owner for the purpose
,of property, as any other prope: t. Th
,North hias hocld, hovdever, that this pecu
liar species of property, instead of beini
prfitable to the owner, has been im
s poerishirig andi ruinous. And in con
tradiction to this I have shown that h
r every comrmunitf ivhere it edists thter
a wealth abounds to a fa r greater exten
I than in the States from which. it is ex
s cded,whateYer may~ be their .chmr~ ,te
- soil, or ter:itory. But even if the~ as
-sessed value of all thie slaves in Ken:
tulsy, Virginia; and Maryland, were lei
n out of thie schnedule of their property, th
,white people of those States would re
main Wvehithier, on an average, tha
e those of Ohio, New York, and Massa
y . "By others again it is cotntended, th~
in estimatitng the average wealth of in
d dividuals in a community, the slavi
'r ought to be included as petsons, ad he
e out as property. Titis, I think, is als
t an error, for the teason before state,
at Where it is contende d that the whi
is .mn ought to abandon shaves, bcedu:
they keep him poor,or prevents nim from
getting rich, iL islibsurd to assert.that hC
not only has pr6ierty in .his ilave, but
that other property b'elongs equally to
-him. But if for an7 othler,purpose or ''.
view 6f yoliti**al economy, the sla e b. -
included with the freeiian in averaging
the property of A State, it will even then
appear qthat in 'the Staiei I have cons
sidered the Southern a're still wealthier
than the Northern, counting the slave-**
as perions and deducting them from the -
property. So tihat iii.n o aspect of the
qtiesfi6ji whate'ver, ii there ainy founda<
tion in fact for the p'opular delusion, that
the Sotuthern Stites, o'r any'of them, are
itfier n6w 'r.heretofdre,.o'r likely to be
liereafrer, inferior t their Northeri
neighbors in wealth- hut the' reverse."
