The AutWSIaverr Agitation .
There was a lima when many of the
lending snd Inflasntial men at lbs South,
though slavsholders themselves, regarded
slavery as a moral, a sooial, and a politi
es evil, aod were CMting aboul ia their
minds Io dsrise some mesns of getting rid
of It. A numeroue emancipation party ex
islsd al ihe South, eipnoisMy in lbs Ststes
ofYirgisls aad Kentucky, io Ihs Isttsrof
whieb 8tetss, a bill looking towsrds smsn
elpatWa easaa witbla one veto of being
passd by the legislature.
It was not unlawful at this esrly period
to tesoh slsvss to rssd; nor did laws exist
obliging free colored persona to lesve
the stats under Ihe penalty ol being sold
ialo bondage. In the Slate of. Tennessee
free blseks were at one time evea permit
ted to vote. ' - '
Bat an entire okangs bss takea p)aoe ia
all tbsse rsspeots. Some yeara ago a dis-
liaguished Southern geollemao assigned
ihe following onuses for Ihe change which
had taken pjkaoe la southern ' ssntiment in
regard to the morality of slsvery. "We
Southsraera," he aaid, " once belisvsd sla
very to bo elefol; but after tbe northern
fanatioshad bgnn their sgitstlon, we be
gsa to Ibiak snd Investigats for oursslves
aod bsve become convinced thst Slsvsry is
not morally wroag. " - Tbe gentleman
Ight base sided the following:
"Tha northern fsnatios hers circulated
newspapers snd tracts counselling the slave
to kill hie matter, if it is nscsssary to do ao
ia older to assert bis own freedom. The
Iswsof sslf-prsssrvslion thsrsfors com pelt
us to forbid tha instruction of our alsves
ia reading. Ia regsrd to the free blsoks,
Ibsy era eoavenienl tools for persons from
tbs North who hsvs insinuated themselves
among is for tbe purpose of tampering
with our alsves. We do - not therefore
deem it prudent to permit free blacks, to
remain witbla our borders."
We msy eoooluds from the foregoiog,
rhst the aeti-elevery agitators hsve been
serening a poller eminently adapted to
defeat the ends which they profess Io hsvs
ia vlsw, lo-wit: the amslioratioa of Ihe
present soaditioa of tba slave, aad tbe ulti
