the commerce of . hive and courtship, de
pend for their cumulative character . upon
the number and frequency of them, wnd on
the whole- taken together. Much sort or
proof is not like that of r a logical chain of
successive links, in which the strength of the
chain is not at all greater than that of its
weaker link. Nor is it like that of a series of
foots in a chain of oircumstannial evidence,
each fact being absolutely essential to the
chain, and to fastening conviction in the
mind of a jury the absence of one being
fatal. , But the kind of evidence of which we
have been siieaking finds.its illustration in
the fkggot of sticks, any one of which may
be broken. .Bui taken together and no force
of ingenuity can be.id 6r break them. Any
one of the separate incidents of a courtship
may carry very littlo menning. A gift of
flowers may le a mere act of neighborly
courtesy or compliment. The presentation
of a book may betoken nothing more than
gratified friendship. A kiss, not amorous or
sensual, may be the index simply of a perfect
friendly understanding and confidence. Any
one of these, taken by itself, may tell no par
ticular story. But visits running through
months, with innumerable evidences of ex
clusive preference, all unite and concentmtc
in an woman, they do tell a very particular
story, and, in their accumulated shape, are
satisfactory evidence of a solicitation to
marry; and if the attentions are accepted and;
enjoyed, the contract is complete.) . j

will be Whites, 27,000,000; Colored, (Slaves,
4,000,000; Free, 600,000,) 4,500,000. The col
