foundation for the hope that the Califoinian
speculators may yet ho caught in
their own trap. A regard for justice,
precedent, and common decency, requires :
that California should have a territorial
government, which is all to which she is J
entitled?and that her preposterous Statu
project should he treated as it, deserves.
Whether there is firmness enough in the
majority of Southern Itenrcsentatives to
insist upon this, wo shall soon see.

The views of our telegraphic cones- |

admission of California; and we fear, from
that wc learn from his communications, j
that she will he remanded back. Should J
this be the case, we are by no moans cer- I
tain that, with a fair expression of opinion J
by the people of California?those who
are legally entitled to vote, on the subject
of Slavery or non-?5?lavery in the territory,
that it would be for it. We confess
that we think the speculators only have
spoken through thu convention. When |
the hard-working men are heard, we mav i
hear a different expression of sentiments
from them than we have heard from the
politicians, schemers, and speculators.

"Letters have readied us from California,
stating that, slave labor at the mines
is worth ten dollars per day. A. slave
can at least sceuro that amount of gold to
his master. After the placer mines shall
be exhausted, and even now, the gold in
the rocks, which is the original source of
all the deposites in the rivers, cannot bo
profitably obtained but by slave labor.
Then, again, the valleys, to be cultivated
require irrigation, which is another profitable
sphere for the employment of our
slaves. Thus, then, in the only two pursuits
now known in California, slave labor
is a more profitable investment than
in the United States.
These slaves are yet there in possession
of their masters: and tlie profits realized
by their labor already so great that
their masters could afford to risk their
loss after one year's scrvice. This one
fact speaks volumes, and proves how prodigious
the loss to tho South has been by
this infamous and iniquitos exclusion.
In tho debates of tho so-called Convention
of California, the assertion was made
that the value of the labor of a slave in
Y/uc U1IIIC9 wuuiu auiwuni to pCr
annum?and the impossibility oi competition
of free with slave labor urged as a
reason for its exclusion.? Telegraph.
