We would refer the Patriot for "facts and

Iffore'of 'tlie TfflsaWiirl i'reesolfer.
A correspondent of the New York Tribune,
goes into extacies over the frteoil rtcruits
that are pouring into that State. Of the
character of those recruits, we subjoin a brief
extract from the letter :
"The German element in the population of
Missouri is becoming now a most important
one in determining the destinies of the State.
The German shopkeeper, mechanic and mer
chant are crowding one portion of St. Louis,
and already form a population of nearly 73.
000. The G'rman peasant and vine-dresser,
and farmer are settling all over the hillsides
and the beautiful valley of the interior,
which the American pioneer had neglected
for the rich rivtr bottoms. Villages spring
up where one hears no language, day after
day, but the language of tlie old Fatherland.
German Judges of the Peace are appointed in
some of the counties; newspapers are pub
lished, laws printed, notices posted, ecbool
books issued all in this foreign tongue. The
best agriculture of the country is falling into
the hands of this busy, thorough people.
Slavery melts away before tbe free Teutonic
industry. The slaveholders find themselves
competed with on the market, undersold and
far outstripped in the yield of the arable
lands. They sell their worn-out fields to these
intrusive foreigners, aud emigrate with their
H sgroes, in disgust, to Texas. Besides, as a
German well explained to me, the slave is be
coming too expensive an iuctrument for labor.
A healthy negro man costs now in Missouri
home $1,200. Capital is worth here at least
10 per cent, so that his cost to the owner,
without reckoning expenses of food, clothing,
medicine, and shelter is $120 per annum.
Then there must be added to this the cost of
his absent or sick days, his 'sulkiness" (which
is, you know; a disease in the medical books,)
, his tendency to the "drapeto mania" (to run
away), and his general disposition to skiikor
do badly, work in which he has no interest.
Now. against, all these expenses and annoy,
ances, the sum of $100 will procure the ser
vices for the year to the new settler of a free,
intelligent, efficient, careful German laborer,
wbo takes care of himself, aud has no sulks.
Is it any wonder, with this statement alone,
that the new-comers, whether American or
German, detest Slavery, and that the old
slave-owners are glad to get rid of their ex
pensive laborers, and either turn Free-Soilers
or emigrate to more congenial circumstan
It is not much wonder that the St. Louis
Democrat, should, in view of these facts, an
nounce that freesoilisra has already triumphed
in Missouri. It says that the battle is already
fought and won, and that the . great hope of
the abolitionists is being realized without re
sort to Legislation, and takes to itself and
its friends enthusiastic congratulations on the
The closing paragraph of the above ex
tract shows very conclusively the relation
between slave and tree labor, w hich is coming
to be with tbe fanatics a harp of a thousand
strings. It shows that tbe Germans come
into the country and by entering into com
petition with slave labor, reduce wages. This
then, is the great benefit of foreign immigra
tion, to extirpate slavery and degrade the
price of labor. It will suit the rich man
very well to grind the poor man to the dust
by a redaction of his lalor to barely a meat
and bread standard. This is the result of the
logic, and the only wonder is that the masses
of white men in the North do not detect the
poor humbug political demagogues are im
posing upon them, and rise as one man, to
put it down. According to the showing of
the Tribune's correspondent the continuance
of slavery is the continuance of high wages,
by which the white laborer is benefitted as
much or more than the slave-owner can be.
But his miserable abolition zeal will not allow
him to see it
The great Kanaaa Antt-Mavery
The great leader of the anti-Lecomptonitcs
in Kansas, is Gen. Jim Lane. His is the
spirit w hich has inflamed the zeal, and inspired
the courage of tbe anti-slavery crusade within
the territory. II U behests have been the law
of his followers. Rkdpath, the correspondent
of the N. Y. Tribune, and editor of the ''Crusader

bis worshippers. But Redpath halt he can

should appear in public as a conservator of

ter or the man who once, in Indiana, as an
eminent citizen of that State, a friend of his
who knew the fact, declared went from
the bed of a common brothel where he had
passed the night, to a Christian church in the
morning, and partook of the holy sacrament
or rue Lord s Supper.
This is a picture of the "light, the star" of
Kansas Anti-Lecomptonism, drawn by a black
republican artist. A party which acknow
ledges and follows such a leader, must neces
sarily be infamous. It cannot be otherwise.
It is no marvel, then, that it has obeyed only
the instincts of villainy, and is stained by the
blood-mnrks of murder and robbery. How
could such a party be expected to recognize
the authority of law or any authority, which
stood as a barrier to its career of crime!
How could it be expected that a constitution,
framed in pursuance of law, and providing
for the organization of a state government,
undefiled by its touch, should meet its appro
bation ? The only wonder to us, about the
matter is, that any one should have sympathy
enough for Lane and his party, to aid them in
their opposition to the Lccompton Constitu
tion. The Kansas Bandits. A letter from the
black republican correspondent of the St.
Louis Democrai, from Kansas, opens with a
confession as follows :

Ilametle Slavery Normal God the
Author of the ICthnoIogleal Differ
ences Justice or Divine Decrees.
One great argument of the English and
"Yankee" anti-slaveryists is the proposition,
fallacious in truth, though somewhat plausible
in statement, and too readily admitted by
those few thinking and unpredjudiced men in
the North who are disposed to do us justice.
that "slavery islocal,and freedom is national,"
that is, that freedom is the universal condition
of mankind, and the euslavement of any por
tion of it, can only exist as the creature of
local municipal law. As a mere matter of
history, this is untrue. The human race have
inhabited the earth about six thousand years,
and yet in the duration of not one hour, not,
one moment of that whole p riod of time has
the race been free and equal especially not
during one honr of the four thousand years j
that have elapsed since the flood. It is, to ;
say the least, very strange, and analogically
very absurd, to suppose that a law of nature
so universal and normal as this equality of the- j
nice is said to be, should never once, not even
for a single instant, have had an application in ;
whoie the history of nature. But this so much
vauted, argument is really but a begging ol
the question. Reduced to a syllogism, the I
proposition will read somewhat thus j
All men are by nature free and equal Ne-
grocs are men.
Therefore negrois are by nature free and j
Here the "major premise" that all j
men are by nature free and equal, which is as- (
sumed, and thereby the question begged, is '
the very point in controversy. In or- j
der to establish that negroes are by na- i
turc free, and equal with other men. it is nc- i
cessary first to establish that all men are by i
nature free and equal, which is simply assum- 1
ed. Convince us that all men, are naturally
free and equal, and as a consequence we must
admit that negroes, being men, are by nature
free aud equal with us, and that only local '
law can enslave tbem. The most casual in
vestigation of history and of the world around .
us, is sufficient to convince any candid mind
that there is no actual or necessary natural
equality, either physical, moral, or mental in
rnan. Even in the Japhetic race, the highest
development of human nature, no two men i
are entirely equal to each other, though we ,
admit that this portion of mankind are by na :
ture free. The distinction becomes broad and t
permanent when the Astatic descendant ol j
Shein is compared to the European son of
Japhet aud the inferiority, moral. mental and .
physical, becomes absolutely insuperable w hen .
the accursed seed of Ham is brought iuto ;
Tiew so absolutely lnsuperable,indeed, as to ;
have furnished iufiddity one of the rat se- .
lious arguments with which it has attacked
the truth of Christianity. It is true that En
glishmen, even Lord Mansfield, wholly un- j
aqnalnted with the African race have argued .
and decided that negroes arc naturally the .
equals of white meu aud "Yankee'' iunita- ?
tors, equally ignorant, have only followed in !
their footsteps; but we, from practical and 1
long experience of the negro race, as well a
because our Bible has declared that it should f
be so, know that negroes are in no way the
equals of white men, but are in every way.In
tellectually, morally, and even physically, in-" '.
ferior to them, and by nature exactly fitted
to be their slaves. This, as Christian men, wt .'
have proved to our own entire satisfaction; '
and have often proved, and can easily prove ,
again to the salinfuctiou of any rational mind.
The proposition that negro slavery is tbe ere- ,
ture of local law and freedom is natural and ,
universal, baa within, aud ouly within, tbe last
Century, been gravely usi.Tted by high British
authority, but asm rted reluctantly, aud lu the
teeth of tbe decisions, aud the common law oi

every age since the flood, more especially in
Christian countries, and it baa never been

Christianity, save where the population was
fast tending to Infidelity, individual and na
tional, as in New England or from mistaken
political considerations, as in Great Britain.
Throughout the United States, save within
the last two or three decades. African slavery
has always been regarded, in accordance with
the received opinion of mankind, as general;
requiring local laws, not to establish, but to
prevent it Look at the original constitutions
of the States, and it will be found that in
every instance where slavery exists, it is never
direclly estab'ished but is me.tly regulated;
as a relation as naturally existent as the rela
tion of parent and child,or husband and wife,
neither of which require direct laws to esta
blish them but where it does not exist, it is
positively and directly enacted that it shall
The fact then, is certain, that our fore
fathers, wise men as they were, did not view
slavery as the creation of local municipal
law. This whole question has now been au
thoritatively passed upon by the highest
tribunal known to our Federal Union. After
a calm and patient investigation of the sub
ject, and review of Mansfield's decision, the
Supreme Court of the United States, in the
case of Dred Scott, have deliberately and dis
tinctly decided that the negro is, by nature
and by Divine law, of a distinct, inferior and
servile species of the human race, and there
fore he can have no "rights" of citizenship
' and that no territorial law, or law of Con
gress, can divest the master of his property,
in tbe person and services of his slave. It is,
therefore, now, by judicial decision, the posi
tive law of the land, that the oatural and
normal relation of the negro to the white
race, is that of inferiority and servitude, just
as God declared it should be, about 4000 years
ago. This ordinance of God the blessings
of Shem and Japhet, the unqualified curse of
Ham, and continual separation of the three
is not, like the latter day theory of natural
and universal equality, a new thing, trumped
up by charlatans to answer the exigencies of
the reckless moral and social progress (?) of
the 19th century, but has existed tbe great
and unanswerable defence of Hametic slavery
for thousands of years. "Cursed be Canaan
a servant of servants shall he be unto his
brethren. Blessed be the Lord God of Shem;
and Canaan shall be bis servant. God shall
enlarge Japheth, and he Khali dwell in the
tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his ser
vant." This is a prophecy; aud a prophecy
involving the whole history of the human
race, from Noah to the J udgment day. There
are no qualifications: the curse of the race of
Ham is exactly equal with the blessings of
Shem and the enlargement of Japheth, and
they are to continue to the end of time. No
profound knowledge ol human history is
needed to see the literal and continued fulfill
ment of this prophecy. Shem has received
his blessing, and to 6ome extent has forfeited
it; Japheth has been enlarged, has received
dominion of two continents and the highest
social, moral and mental development and
England and Russia are dwellingin the tents
of Shem in all ages since the flood, the
race of Ham have been accursed, and have
been, as their natural and normal condition,
slaves lor their brethren and in all ages the
three races have been marked and separate
the line of separation, instead of diminishing,
as other lines do, becoming greater and "ore
distinct with the progress of time. Philoso
phers generally classify the human race iuto
five varieties, viz: the Caucasian. Mongolian,
American, Ethiopian and Malay; or by col
ors: the white, brown, copper, black and
tawny but these are really and properly re
ducible to three, viz: the European or Cau
casian, the African, and the Asiatic or Mon
golian. Between these three varieties or
species, there havo always been insuperable
barriers ineradicable, organic and distinc
tive differences existent, not from "climate,
food, Jtc," but from the direct sentence of
God. Even before the flood, there must
have existed a marked distinction between
the descendents of Cain and those of Seth;
and this distinction must have sprung, also,
from the direct sentence of God, in the pecu
liar curse pronounced on Cain and his seed.
After the flood, the Creator directly institu
ted new ordinances for the government of the
race, as, for example, the reduction of the
lifo of man to less than one-fifth what it bad
been. The greatest of all the new ordinances
was the appointment of Shem, Ham, and
Japheth. to be the fathers and founders of
three w idely distinct and dissimilar species,
which distinction and dissimilarity were to
continue through all time. This second start
ing point was, therefore, not a unit like the
original, but was triune and the destinies of
these three were to be different, as foreshad
owed in the blessings and curses pronounced
upon each. The original unity of the human
race cannot be doubted, because it is estab
lished by clear Biblical authority but human
reason can establish it in no other way than
this, that God, at the second starting of tbe
race, ordained tbe division of mankiud into
the three distinct and organically different
species, which we find existent at the present

-Washington. -May- 29. Senate Mr. Ma
son, from the Committee on Foreign Rela
tions, to whom was referred the resolotion
inquiring whether additional legislation is
necessary to place power in the bands of the
Executive to obtain redress for recent British
outrages, submitted a report, tbe substance
of which is that the official statements show
a succession of acts of aggression by the Brit
ish cruisers in the Gnlf of Mexico so marked
and extraordinary as have awakened the
indignation of tbe country. .Vessels under
the . flag, pursuing lawful commerce, ' have
been fired into, stopped, and interrogated as
to their cargo, destination, crews, ic. No
less than fifteen American ships in the harbor
of Sagua La Grande, and six on the high
seas have been officially reported, each arri
val bringing additional facts of the aggres
sions of the same power on our flag. It has
hitherto 1 appened that in isolated cases,
where aggressions have occurred through
misconception, the United States has been
content to accept a disclaimer of intent, but
the continued and persevering character of
these outrages is such as to arouse the in
dignation of the country, and require us to
arrest at once, and end at once and for ever,
the continuance of such indignities.
, On motion of Mr. Seward, of New York,
one thousand copies of the resolutions of tha
committee in relation to British aggressions,
were ordered to 1m printed.
Mr. Mason, of Virginia, spoke on the resolu
tions, showing that indubitably the interna
tional law recognizes no right of visitation
in time of peace, and in time of war it is only
conceded to the extent of preventing the
carrying of articles contraband of war. He
cites as authorities Judge Story and Lord
Stowell. showing that no armed ships of any
nationality has the right to stop, visit, or
board for any purpose, and that ships at sea
are not bound to lay to or wait. The reso
lutions indicate no more than that the time
has arrived when this must be settled at once
and forever. It is hoped that it znsv be
immediately settled by the Executive. There
is every reason why it should be, and none
why it " should not. Angry feelings and
reprisals cannot but bring the two countries
into collision; but whether or not, the nature
of tbe indignations is such that tbe American
people cannot longer permit it.
Mr. Mallory, of Florida, proposed an amend
ment declaring that the American people
cannot permit such aggressions, and there
fore Congress should legislate to enable the
Executive to adopt measures at once to pre
vent the continuance of such indignities.
Although fully recognizing that the mission
of the United States and England should be
the preservation of peace, he could not sacri
fice the rights and honor of the country to
any issue whatever. He could not consider
that this succession of outrages was the mere
act of individual naval officers. It was
doubtless by the orders of the Admiral at
Jamaica, who in turn had orders from his
Government; and it was a suspicious circum
stance that these outrages commenced imme
diately after the refusal by this Government
of certain demands made by England respect
ing the slave trade.
Mr. Douglas asked, what good does it do to
resolve that the search is a belligerent act?
The American people and England know it is.
England was informed of it forty years ago,
and has violated our rights thirty-three times
within the past few weeks. lie commend.'d
and admired the promptness with which the
President has sent a force to the Gulf, but
that foree is only up to the point of preven
ting. Do vou suppose it will ever Hud an
opportunity to prevent a search, unless a ship
ot war be sent to accompany every m-rchant
vessel? The Senator from New York (Seward)
was wrong in saying our force could sink the
British fleet in the Gulf. England has there
three guns to our one. Is it brave, at least,
to think our one will s'nk her three? Mr.
Douglas recommended another course; let a
ship of war say ra Wabash get on the
track of the Styx or Buzzard, follow her up,
capture her, and bring her into an American
port, and it will then be time to make explan
ations. If England avows the cruiser's acts, it
becomes an international questiou; if she disa
vows the acts, it only remains for us to say
what punishment we shall inflict on those law
less persons who have perpetrated these out
rages. The President having gone as far as he can
go, let him have at once such powers as are
necessary to protect the flag and maintain
the rights of our citizens at home aud abroad.
He had no fear of the abuse of such power,
by the present Executive, or any that mav
follow him. The President is almost power
less abroad. Every other Chief Magistrate
has power, not only to repel, but punish out
rages on nationality, and why should not the
Chief Magistrate of this Republic have power
ample ana lull, in am or our nagT Instead
of having apprehension that power would be
abused, Mr. Douglas only feared it would not
be exercised often enough.
e cannot protect our commerce in the
Gulf and Carribean sea without power in the
executive to punish promptly the British.
Her name is respected, aud" ours despised
among the Spanish American portion of the
Continent, because the British take instant
reparation; whereas Mexico, and other weak
republics, know our President has no Jinstant
power, and by any delay of negotiation re
paration is lost. Mr. Douglas holds, there
lore, as a general policy, to keep the President
clothed with power to protect our citizens
outside of the United States, by summary
yrocess, without going through this formula
of resolutions, that the aggressor must not
do it again. He was in hopes tbere would
have been no speeches, but that the bill would
have passed unanimously, without a word
which expression of sentiment would have
carried more force than the army or navy.
