g o .1ttshow thas South Carolina,
as ac separate :State,.will, by a moderate Tarif,
de-ite-mpleeyenue for all the purpelss of a
new goveinment. and that she will be in a con
ditionfo nisintitin her independence and resp-c
tjilit# we propose now to consider some of
what iay bo deemed the secondary effects of
It is urged, that, by insulating ourselves from
the *other-Southern States, we will cut off every
outlet by -which we might get rid of our slaves.
and will thereby bring upon the State the gr, at
evils of a redundant and valueless slave popula
tion. Let us examine the porceof this argument.
Every one knoews that the institutim of slavery
is already -restricted to the States in which it
now exists-having been. fir all practical purpo
sea, excluded not only fgom California. but from,
all the newly acquired Territory. The high
handed act of injustice and oppression, by which
this object was accomplished, having been tamely
acquieseed in, will continue as a stern political
law, unless resistance to it be yet made by the
Southaern people. The other slave States, equal
ly with Suuth Carlina. are prevented from car
ryina their slaves into these Territories. Know
ing then that they, also, have no outliet for their
slaves, will not these States be placed under the
same necessity as ourselves to guard against
over-popul:ation ? They will scarcely have less
wisdom or prtcaution than ourstlves. But in
self-defence th.-y will, in a short time, be driven
to prohibit all further immigration of slaves into
their borders ; anl that time cannot be remote;
for many of the slave-holdin. States are very-lit
tle behind Sotluth Carolina in denseness of poipu
latiemn. We have to the sqr. mile only about 20
inhabitante; Georgia has about 16: Keitneky,
21: Tennessee, 121: Alabama. 13: Mir-sissippi.
13; Losimna, 9; Florida. 2: Tex. s,1; A rkan
ins. 4. . Georgia, Kenetnieky and Teninessee may.
therefore, in point of n1u1mbers, he placed, at this
time, on a footing with our State. Alabama.
5Mississippi and Louisiana will, in a very few years.
have a population to the sqr. mile equal to that
of '4-uth Carolina at prest nt; and will be driven,
threeugh fear of relumlancy. to proihibit the
furthe.r iiemnigratieon if slaves. Flierida, A rkant
sas and1 Texas will then be th.- - nlv outlet for
the supposetd surlelus slaves of Virginia, North
and South Carltima. Georgia. Kentucky and oth
er S'ates. But with the tide likely to pour in
up.en them- frem all th--se States, how long would
it be before they, also, will be forced to adopt the
same law of self-preservatin I It is evident,
that when it eince becomes a " fixed fact," that
slaves are to be permanently excluded from the
new Territories and from California, all the
Southern States. laooking to this restriction and to
the future increase of their inhabitants, will pro
hibit the further immigration of slaves into their
borders; and this prohibition will certainly take
place, long before there will be a surplus popula
tion in South Carolina.
Whether South Carolina, therefore, be in a
separate condition, ormi a SouthernmConfederacy,
so long as slavery shall be excluded- *om' the
Territories. she will-have to prof'i&vfor the future
increikor thirves? 'Thtere Wllbhe no imaiural

jectioii to sepatateState secession, falls to the
-Bu4 te,.gvile.complained of from the future
increase of our slaves, while reetricted to our
own limits, will not be, we think. so great as
pretended. For a lor.g while, at least, the in
crease will be productive~ of the nest benefcial
results. We have sufii-red irreatly in wealth and
prelsperity byv emiifgraton. A yradual ir(erene of
our inhabitants would hut restore us to a h.-alth
ful state of ad vancemetnt. There is no "ancer
of an eover-population for ce'ntnries. We have
seen that the population of Saeuthm Carolinia to the
sqr. neile is only 20. This glves ahont 30 acres
of land te, every white and black soul in the
State. Now here is evidently a erent runern
bund ance. Thns is entirely too much hend to the
population for a hieh state of rorsperity. What
decree of boteulationi is South Canrolina capnbhle
of supporting? By the proper cnlture of her
soil, and by the development of all her resources.
it is fair to assume that she ennbl snstain 250l to
the sqjr. mile. England has 300 to the sqr.
mile; Tlolland 300: Belgium 330: and all the
German States, which are almsost exclusively
agricultural and mnanufacturing, have from 100
to 300. Even the Chinese Empire. with its
1.6-1,000 sqr. miles, with scarcely any foreign
commere. hits over 130. A neient A ttica with
365,000.slaves, had a population of more than
700 to the sqr mile. Witht her great natural
resources-her fertile soil-her rich iron mines
her great facilities for every kitnd of manufac
ture-and her extensive and growing co~mnmeree:
South Carolina will be able easily to sustain a
population of 250 to the sqr. mile.
This will make space, in the limits of the
State for about 8,000,000 of inhabitants. A t
present, there are in round numbers 650,000.
By a natural increase. how lonw, then. w,.uld it
take fear our population to reach 8.000,000 ?
The ratio of increase varies in different countries.
and in the same country under different circum
stances. A sparsely inhabited territory, for in
stance, with ample supplies of subsistence, will
increase nmoret rapidly than a dlensely peopled
country, where supplies are likely to be les
bematifuil and where many causes coenspire~ to im
pede population. In moswt states oIf this Confed
eracy, the pelpuhaioen, including immigration, has
doeubald itself every 25 ye are. The increase in
South Carolina has been, otn an ave-rage, about
20 per cent. The ratio of inrease in ENGL.AND,
sitnc the year 17m81, has been for each decade
only 10 per cent. It will be found to be a gener
al law that, oewing to a variety of causes, the~ ra
tio of increase diminishes as population becomes
Tho~ugh, therceore the ratio in South Carolina
might continue, for a terma of years, uniform at
20 per cent. yet when we view the causes that
usuahlly retard population, seuch as wars, epidem
les, oeliba&ey'diseases induced by trades and
manufactures, irregulsritie. and diseases that
spring up in crowded cities apd places, tbe emni
gratlon that will'take plaeeamong the whites &'.,
we may conclude thatithe ratio ogf increase will
be reduced much below 29 per cent But tak

events, from the remoteness of the per.od at
which such an event is likely to happen. be an
improper subject of diseussion at present. It
miust fall to the duty of after generations. under
she gu'dance of an all-wise and provident (reator.
But it assay well excite our anxiety to know,
what will be the piribable eifeels upon our m eWath
and prosperity of the itcrease of our population,
if restricted to our own borders. We can only
see into the future by the lights of the past. It
a clear, as population inere:s P, so will also the
I.roductive intdtairy of the state. This, as a
natural result, will greatly multiply capital
among us. And p.h-itical Economy, based on the
experience of nations, teaches, that "aceumula
ted capital. gradually increasing, is a sure means
of furnishing subsistence and for supporting and
in-nutaining permanently a moderately increasing
population." And this is, also, the strongest
evidence of national prosperity. No fears, there
fore, need be entertained as to the e'apacity of
the 'tate to provide for every reasonable in
crease of its population.
It is probable. that after a great while, when
our numbers shiall have reached several millions,
labor becoming clealier, our slaves will, to some
extent, de-preciate in value: but, at the same
time, by the great improvements in aitriculture,
which a dense population always introduces, the
value of our lands will be grt ally enhanced ; and
large and profitable investments will, also, be
nmade in othr r brattehes of industry, as in msanu
faturis. cOnsnneree &c., which will nore than
colmpensate for the diminu:ion in the value
,of our slaves: while, by this transfer of slave
value to objects more affixed to the soil, the re
inovil if the slaves fron our limits. should future
circumtances render it necessary. will be great
ly facilitated, and will be rendered les burdenous
to the slave owner and to the state.
But for a great length of time, owing to the
peculiar products .of our soil, neither any con
siderable diminution in the value of the slave,
nor any necessity for his removal from the State
is likely to arise. Who can tell how n-ueh the
fertility of our soil may be increased by judicious
culture and by the use of manures? It has been
found by experience, that a. field, which in. a
natural state, produces but 15 bushels of wh.at.
nay be made to produce 40. This has been ac
tially done in England. Ins one whole county,
(olfork) not niaturally very fertile, the average
f farms is stid 'to be from 30 ~to 3.S bushels to
he aere. Why'may unt the same degr'ee of prb
kretion be raesebed in Shuth Carolinat Our
oil is nattrally. monferiile that. haf Englanda.
his isnproIvement can be .pade, and.it.will be,
when necessity urges to it.
Suppose then our slaves to be even kept out
f the highly profitabte~ enployments of comn
nere, mechanies atnd manufactures, and direeted
xlusively to agricultural labor, what an im
ense yield tnuy rensonably be expected, when
ur hands have all been reduced to cultivation
and prope.rly improved I The slaves, as they in
rese. could of themaselves support the whole
hite population of shw State. Ins Greast Britaina,
bout 6.(00,000t of agrictiteradl oborers ansd
,anufnturers support by their productive labor4
ahout 10.000.000 of unproductive consin'eers.
Why coula1 ntot equal productiveness be realized
unong us I On this estimate, S. C'arolina could
tinnintain a population of from 10.000,000 to
12,000,~f, and retain her slaves as valuable pros
perty. A t all events. we may safe~ly reckon on
internal and external resout ces of wealh and pros
perity for centuries yet to come. before our slaves
ar.' likely to he rendered vaiueless, or before the
necessity of their remsoval from natural causes,
is likely to arise.

of'Edge eld, Village and Country, that. [have
commenced a MIERCANTILE BUSINESS in f
the house situated between Mr. BRYAN's Store
and the C4ourt I louse.
My STOCK, consisting of all the varieties
usually found in a Village Rietail Store, has been
recently purchased in Charleston. from Houses
that import their Goods.principally, direct from
Europe. And. I flatter myself. that an ex
perience of five years in an Importing and .lob
bing I louse in Charleston, together with other
facilities, has enabled me to get a STOCK of
GOODS. that wiH, in point of SvTLE and PRtcE.
compare favorably with any Establishment in the
place. Persons wishing to purchase Goods for
CASH Or on a credit until first of January next,
will loose nothing by giving me a cal.
A small share of patronage iseernestlysolicited.
