ity among our people. Besides Brazil, it is patent.
to evary observer that Algerin, Cape C'lony in
Southern Africa, India, Australia, New Zealand,
other East India Islands and British Columbia, or
Fraser's River, have become the great magnets,- 1
which attract those who seak not only political
rights, good cheap land and mild climate, but also
cheap btere or rewie labor which cannot be
found here. T o powers of Europe are supplying
their Colonists with such labor by wholesale, at
merely nomsinal prices-tho simple cost of impor
tati.ou. In fact, France in Algeria, and England
on the West Coast of Africa, as well as in her
Great Colony in Southern Africa, and in the fertile
broad valley of t'c Zambeze, are supplying negro
apprentices without even the cost or trouble of
importation. The apprentices are on the spot
"to the manor born," yet they have to cultivate
their own lands with their own hands, to furnish
subsistence and luxury for the white Colohist.
It way merit tho'remark, thit one of the proba
ble motives which actuate the Governuents of
Europe in thus retracing-their steps on the matter
of "Abolition," and the "equal rights of man,"
is to stop the floodtide of emigration to the United
States, by tendering the emigrant in other quar
tors, not only cheaper land but also eheaper store
tl,.,r than can be had here with the slave trade
closed. This view of the case may likewise serve
to explain England's finxiety to suppress the slave
trade outside of her Colonies. She allows a few
Coolies to Cuba, that her own merchants may real
ize the profits of transportation, that she may cov
er her designs-that her own universal apprentice
system may be kept in countenance, but above all
that Cuba way have within her bosom, a more re
belious and inflamatory population than the Afri
can to prevent Creole sympathy with annexation
to thle Uuitud States. England's " apprenticed la
borera " in her Colonies, way also give a cue to her
dubious policy, ad matiiiested in her legislation and
" Orders in Council," with reference to the negrocs
of Africa. She directs all her efforts towards get
tilg a suliolency of white masters in her Colonies
to superintend Negro, Malay and Mongolian ap
prentices or siamos to grow her raw cotton, and the
tropical pruducts wantod by the world. France is
imitating her example on a grand scale, and so
are some of the other European Powers to a limui

tal States are unable to cope with the British Lion
whoso stomach is large enough to crave the land
and labor of the whole uncivilized world for his
morsel of prey. Not satisfied with her vast pos
sessions of land and Mongolian labor in the East
Indies, England has lately been appropriating
mure soil and labor in China. In fine, knowing
that labor is the only true capital, she is compel
ling alI tho colored races to labor in many cases
upon their own land, for the exclusive profit ot
bar white Colonists. Those races must do it or
perish as the American Indiana have done.

which she accorde to her Colonies. Profiting b)

is not at all comparable to the negro as a laborer,
and so he will nut long be permitted to till his na

hut must perish like the Indian, Spanish Mon
grel and Malay.
TLhe Asiato is about as fit for a slave or f.-ee
man, as his Shaghi chicken-is for a game cock.
Of the two, the Shaanghi is a better fowl than tbe
Asitie is a manD, and while he has but little ctndu
ranca or strength for labor, ha is yet treacherous
and mutinous. Hie must end will be superceded
as a laborer by the nugro. The tendencies of the
age foreshadow the extermination of all the Inter
mediate races end colors, between the extremes ul
white and black-the one to govern as aristocrats,
and thme other t-, serve as slaves-slaves to moder
ate anti well directed labor-not slaves to the op.
pression of capital, or to the tyranny of wanaton
iower. It may be said that I htave too much re
gardl for thu negro and too little for the Inidian,
the Mongrel Spanitird, the Malay Islander, unad
tiae Asiatic. Well, I confess tmy affection for Samabo
is much stronger, than it is for those other human
cattle. All the colored races now exist at the mucre
suflerance of the white wan. That thing of get
ting subsistene and luxuries from the land aund
labor of others, is ta potential argument to per.
suade the stronger wan to control the land and
labor of the weaker.
The Indian will not and cannot be a slave, as
we all know from many experimnents taade in our
owa Coloniis end the early Spanish Anmerican set
taemtents. It wvas because the Inadian could not en
dure toil cheerfully like the Arrienmn, that the lat
ter was firat made a slave in the West Indhies antI
l:z our own Colonies. Theo Miongrel Spaniard lias
no where vindicated his claim to be treamted aither
as a slave or as a freeman, and therefore he is en
titled to' no consideration at our hands whenever
we want his land. The Malay is equally unfit for
slavery or freedom, and England is exterminating
him, whila we are destroying the Indian and Span
ish Mongrel. Consequently only the Asiatic and
African remain to labor for the whmito man. Now

ance. The history of Europe until recently was
but the tale of filibustering migrations. Itecall the
movenientsof the Dorians and Pehasgi in Greec
of the Cartliagoians end Rtomans in Italy-of the
Northern hordes who overran the Western Emipire
-of the Saxonas, Dance an~d Normans in England ?
Was theo Partition of Poland any thing but a sue
esful filibustering eapl.oit by the strong white
mltan against the weak, to appropriate the land ofI
the latter and toat fearful oatent even the labor ?.
How tuany Voles are now slaves upon the very
land they once owned ? It will do therefore to
talk about the right to live-the right to enjoy all
the fruits of one's own labor, only as among whites
or egurdsn and nmong them only on condition of
being permitted to exterminate or enslave the
colored races and appropriate their land.
If any one is horror struck at the summary man
ner, in which I have disposed of the inferior races,
I hope some one will prescribe a dlose of paragoric
to comnpose his delicate nerves. Ue must be one of
those "sangary philanthropists," as Carlyle calls a
particular class of reformers in the present age.,
who is opposed to reviving the slave trade, on ac
count of Its uannwernlity. Lest no phtysician may be

myself by reminding bite that the very land which .

" Distance lends enchantment to the view,"
Vut no distance of time or spaco can ever lessen
the cnormity -of the aistract wrong, which South
orn land owners and slave holders have inflicted
upm the Indian and Negro. Hence, sweet-ton
gued gentlemen! you must take things in the
concrcte, or you milst be ashamed of yourselves, if
you will exercise either judgment or memory?
But I shall again prescribe for your sick conscience.
The discovery of America and the discovery of
the passage around the Cape of Good Hope pro
bably had.wore agency in abolishing white slave
ry in. Europe tha.n any pressure of bubsistenceo up
on land, especially in soine of the States in mid
dle and Southern18uropc. After those two events,
the white man acquired a spirit of maratime ad.
venture, which urged him into new onterprises and
brought him into conflict with all the colored or
weaker races of mon. Those conflicts established
his superior prowess, and since then the C-mcas
sian every where has claimed equality as his nat
ural right-hus struggled to rank as the peer of
his fellow. The Serf then commenced to assert
his right of expatriation at least, and from that day
he has also been constantly usurping the land and
enslaving the labor of all the inferior races. So,
that no* in 1859, the prospect is flattering for the
white race at no distant day to lord it over the
habitable globe. The migration from Europe is
so ceaseless and rapid in this age of steam thn t ore
a century more she will have become so sparsely
populated that slavery may be re-established there,
and I predict the ostablishment of negro slavery
in that white man's home before 1959.
So heavy has been the draft upon Europe for
emigrants to distant lands that several States of
thait Continent now have loss than IOU inhabitants
to the square mile. The present attitude of France
and England on the subject of the negro and Af
rica portend that a new era is dauning upon the
world. When negro slavery shall have taken root
in France and in the other States of Europe, per
haps there will then be some such thing as consti
tutional liberty for the white man throughout the
whole earth. Africa is beginiug to feel the impulse
of the white man carrying MJfan Carta with him
and urging the sentiment of subjection to servi
tude of an inferior to a superior race. All right,
but let us have a few more Africans too, with
which to plant slavery throughout this Western
Continent. 'Then we will ruise no objection to
England, France and the other Powers of Europe
appropriating the land of all Africa and Southern
Asia, as well as the labor of the negro and Coolie
apprentice. But until England in particular shall
onsent to such reciprocity, I, for one, will continue
to make war upon her monopoly of Asiatic and
The white race need never, and probably will
never again, to any considerablo extent, suffer for
subsistence. Steamships can now speedily trans
port the excess of population from one Continent
or Dland to another, where land is more abundant
and rail roads can then us readily curry the emi
grant into the interior. No more millions will per
.bh of faminne in Ireland, or elsewhere. If they
do. they will deserve their fate. White men now
have the printing press, mail and telegraph to
get information as to' the best place, whlither to emi
grate for cheap land, or high wages. They also
have every f~icility for quick transportation and
revolvers, as well as other improved ire-arms to
conquer land fromt the colored races, or to control
their labor. The late acts of Enmgland and France
ims the Citinese an.l Japanetise wasters.are as otuti
n'us, urs their recent perfrmumecs in A frient. It
would appeaar that hemceeforth Asiatie-s and1 Africatns
are t' labor andu Europmeans to cijoy. Why should
our white polpulatlion form any exceptionl to the
general rule oft Caucussian atacendency ? While
thle States of Europe (and particularly England)
are steadily pursuing the policy of sppiopriating
the land andI labor of the ioferior races, why
should we adopt the half..banded policy of only
appropriating their land ; But I forgot. Our yov
ernacnt hlas no foreign policy. Still it is a policy
with our peoplc to appropriate the land of the in
ferior races and to uextend toward the tropics, lint
why should it not also be the policy of our people
to get more labor from Africa, or Asia, as well as
more land from the Indian or Spanish Mongrinc
sin they ase both so unfit for slaves ?
Why shoulld Soutlhorn slave holders hesitate
longer about enlarging the area of negro slavery,
by extending it into the territories, and into some of
the present free State', which could he done if the
slave trade were revived ? Why are they not alive
to the importance of planting slavery beyond the
[nited States, and especially in Mexico or Central
America ? Why contend for the abstract right to
extend the area of slavery in Kargas, Californim andl
in other localitics withoit furnishing the A frica, s
necssary to .coumpiish it? The easiest wvay to
attaint a " moral victory" over ab'olitionismn Is to
revive the slave trade. Would the Irseh ret urn to
the land of the Shamnrock if they could get cheap
negro labor ton work our cheap land at the South ?
Would they not ho inclined tom ilibuster the fertile
territory owned by the mongrel Sp'aniards, and
then enjoy themurelves in the shade, while at negro,
once a savage, bmut now a rivilized being by mneatns
of slavery, should work for themw? Would not thme
German', who at present settle in the North-West,
pursue the saune course ? Would not hordes of
abolition Yankees come South for the samne pur
pose ? Would not abolition then decline so fast
that it never could he resusitated ? There wias a
time when yankees and foreigners both uuot-ed
Southward to get cheap land and cheap labor, but
that was before thle slave trade was closed.
Yet from the epithets with which some slave
holders anathematize the slave trade (the only
means of getting wore slave States) it would seem
bat thley apprehend if another slave State were
Irected out of our territories, or that if one, or two,
rr three of them wecrc carved out of Mexico and
Central Autuerica, it wuld deplrecinte thme pric-e and
hire of our p.resenlt negroes to it ruimous nuunt.

The Slave Trade Agitation. f
The columns of this paper have been libcraflly
mpplied, for a number of weeks, with arguments
3pon this questi n P) nd ento. The reasoning
if "smio-and the demonstrations orfR. G. HARPEn
save, we trust, received alike the careful consider
ation of our readers. Roth of these writers evineo
tbilities commensurate with the importance of their
uiject; And in publishing their views, we have
lone what we thought was due to the question in
ieand and called for by the wishes of some of our
miost esteemed subscribers. But we confess that
neo are now growing tired of the discussion, and
we have reason to think that very many of our
readers fool as we do. Enough has been written,
nough has been said ; or at least as much as the
present condition of the Slave Trade excitement
would seem to demand. That excitement, which
Siared up with some display of feeling on the ar
rival of the iranderer's cargo, has almost entirely
died away. Indeed it scarcely extended at any
time in South Carolina beyond the limits of Edge
field. Few, if any, of our country contemporaries
throughout the State have given the subject more
than a passing notice. The Adrertiser has pub
lished more about the matter than all of them
combined; and this for a very obvious reason:
They had no proximate cause, ns had we in Edge
field, to broach the question. There was no ex
citement, no feeling in the premises, one way or
the other, among their readers; and there was
consequently no seeming necessity to argue the
question. In fact, so far as we can gather, almost
the entire press and people of the State look upon
the revival of the African Slave Trade as a totally
useless and impractical issue while this Union shall
continue to stand. Those therefore who are oppo
sed to it-and SZ3.aron HANNOx D thinks they are
nine-tenths of our population-feel little or no
concern about this W1"anderer affair except in so
far as they depreOat. the open violation of a law
of the land. They know that, as matters now
stand, such instances, even though partially sue
cessful, are no harbingers of a Renewal of the
Slave-Trade. They fel, on the contrary, that the
direct tendency will be to diminish the chances of
a renewal. The arm of the Federal 'Government
is outstretched with redoubled strength for its sup
pression upon the occurrence of any-such attempt
to defy the existant law. The vigilance of the
navy officials is increased ten-fold. The guards
and checks upon the illicit trade are at once made
more efective at all points. Hence the quiet un
oncern, in appearance, among the masses of our
people who are opposed to the renewal of this
.traffic. They know that these occasional spasmod
ic efforts at introducing African savages amongst
us will result immediately in abortion; and that
each abortion will throw an effectual 'damper' over
the continuation of such efforts.
But ikmay be claimed that the 1"arnderer affair
is not an abortion. May be not. We see that the
parties implicated have lost something considera
hi by the confiscation of their ship. But perhaps,
like MR. Sxow among the Etbiopean Serenaders,
when he was bothered to answer a certain "conun
dibum" propounded by Ma. JonvstcxG, if they
"gib up de ship," they "dont gib up de niggers."
How this may be, perhaps there is no one at this
time capable of telling. Soine of the Africans
have been taken into custody in Georgia, andt
others of them may yet he captured. We do not
say that they will be. MR. ConnR, sunpposel to
be concerned in the importation, is under arreat,
and others of the lV-ndrer's crew are in linbo.
What prices have been paid for the A fricans that
havc been sent into the interior, or whether any
prce have yet been paid, it is imapossibile to say.
We ,hounild thninnk that thomse prices ill ibe very
lw; undler thu circumstanes of tine case, they
oght to beu. So that whluin the wholel troubele of
the enterlirize, its expnsesL~, its lInsses, its delays
ofC paymnennt, its forfeitunros, conme to he counted, it
manny appear thnat evemn tine Wuenndrer'u succeou has
hen a very little thing. ifinndeed it has not becen but
" the gain of a loss." Even admitting it to be a
success every way, we repeat that its chief effect
will be to decrease the importations for the next
five or six years by calling into active operation
the causes just mntionned.
Thne common opinion of even the Slave-Trade
advocates is, that thiese inportatjons should be,
discountenaned as long as the present lnaw stands
unrpaled. What are the chances of such repeal ?
Let every man ponder for himself the soveratl
poits innvolvedl in this considoration : 1st the op.
position of the United North ; 2nd, the great dis
traction that would inevitably occur at the South
oven In the cotton-.Staites proper; 3rd, the certainty
of our losing Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, Ten
nessee, Missouri, and perhups other States, on auy
issue lookcinig to a Revival of the Slave Trade;
4th, the nossity of a separation of tine Cotton
States from the rest of the Uuion to attain a Re
niewal of the Slave Trade, even if a majority of the
people of these States were in favor of it,-which is
niot the case ; 5th, the new contest with new Iea
nures which any sunch propnosition to sepa~rate friom
/are States would begot annmngs't us. We only
suggest these points to the reflection of our readers.
They arc as capable, as we, of putting them to
gether and drawing ae correct conclusion. We
doubt nnot their arriving at the same opinion with
ourselves, viz: that the agitation of the question
of the Slave Tradle is a bootless and useless effort.
It is on these accounts, that we desire to discon
tinue the publication of long articles on this sub
ject as soon as practicable. Our spaeo can be
filled with matter more acceptable to our readers.
Of course we will cheerfully publish "Scem'o's

Mr. Wx. MCKzUxA, a wealthy citizen of Lan
caster, died recently in that District. The Lan
ceser Ledger learns that he has left the bulk of
his large estate, which is supposed to be worth
nearly $200,000, to the Roman Catholic Church,
cutting off his needy relatives in LANcasTRza with
a pittance. The wife of Prof. J. F. G. AVITTAG is

. The Blue Ridge Question.
The Anderson Gazette gives an interesting ac
coqut of a complimentary serenade to several dis
ti uished gentlemen who were present in that vil
lage at the late session of Court. Major B. F. Pan
ny,-Gen. S. McGowaN, and others, responded in
eloquent terms. The reason of the compliment,
was the advocacy by these gentlemen, of the Blue
Ridge cause during the last session of the S. C.
Legislature. Both speakers expressed the hope
that the measure of aid would pass at the next ses
slon. After an hour or two of music and good
speaking, the company quietly adjourned for the
ovening and went to bed. A tremendous effort
will be made in the Legislaturo next winter to
carry on this Blue Ridge enterprize by State Aid.
We trust that the Edgefleld delegation will go
down united in support of the road. If we are
not greatly mistaken, the people of the District
are in favor of it by large odds; and it is expected
that our delegation will (in this matter) act as the
Hon. James L. Orr.
The papers of Col. Orr's Congressional District
have spoken out, in the main, in terms highly com
plimentary to him upon his present retirement
from public life. The Spartanburg #S)artan, com
menting upon his remarkably successful career,
" Look at him. Ten years ago, an obscure and
young man, he entered Congress from a State
whose refractoriness denied her influence, though
she commanded attention from the intelligence of
her citizens and the ability of her Representatives.
Too inexperiened to have definitely settled his
policy except upon general principles, he gradual
ly took ground measurably opposed to the leading
men of his State, and naintained it with unfalter
ing steadiness. In the midst of bitter denuncia
tion from ultraists, he persevered in elucidating
his politics, until finally his Congressional decade
culminated in the speakerbhip. Truly these were
ten years well spent, having relation only to him
self; but, to see, at the end of his service, a ct
tling down of the sentiment of the State only tech
nically different from the course he has pursued,
is indeed a satisfaction and measure of honur to
Iill his cup to the brim."
The Spavrtu then holds out the possibility of
his yet occupying a stili loftier position before the
contry anad exptrtmes itself assured in the beclief
that his great self-possession, sterling integrity,
and splendid administrative talents will merit a
record as fair as any Executive has left upon the
pages of his cuuntry's history.

It is a melancholy (hity, and we seldom record
the death of one so aniable, so much esteemed
and loved, as the subject of this notice.
Boing possessed naturally of a mild and pleas
ant disposition, and having in early life embraced
religion, and sharing largely in the Many chris
tian graces. she was thereby enabled to discharge
the duties of her station, and to pass quietly, and
nuostentatiously, the short time allotted her here,
with satisfaction and usefulness to all around, and
especially her iatediate family. During her
school-girl days she became a subject of conver
ling grace, and unaited herself with the Baptist
Church at Red Batik, where she lived, loved and
respected, a consistent and faithful member,
"ever adorning the doctrines of God, her Saviour,
by a well ordered life end Godly conversation."
But in the domestic circle, in her own immedi
ate family, and around her own fire-sidle, is the
vaccuum greatest, and will the loss full most heavi
ly. Disliclinesd naturally to mtix tnucha with the
world, atnd delightinig especially ini her own homec,
it was thaereo her virtues shonte b'righatest, anda her
usefulness was perhaps greattest ;anid it may be
sail of her truathifully, that tenaparally, as well as
5spiritualtly, " her houase was ever set in oruder."
Death for her, therefore, hada nao terro~rs. as sihe

whiatever, int the Pruvidonm e of God, awaited her;
And although yet younag in years, seemed more
fitted for the joys of Heaven, than the trying and
pierplexing scenes of earth.
A husband, with four lit-tle children, an aged
Mother, Brothers and Sisters, and nunierouts rela
