We publish, il another cotmnin,.so
much of the presentment of the'G a'and
Jury of' Williamsburg'Di-trictb as re
lates to the remoVal, bY our Govern
ment. of the present prohibition on
the Africah Slave trade. The pre
sentnt-nt is pointed. forcible and full
ofsound truth and good policy. We
regald-it-as a great and growing evil
to the cause of the South and to, the
institt'iobn of slavery tha~ t ls property
is every day rising in value and in
firef, has afready become so high as to
induce those owniiing biut a few slaves,
to part with tlient for the money of
the large Capitalist of the country.
For whenever this spt cies of property
is entirely concentrated itn the hands of
a few wealthy planters, the strongest
of all inducements to protect and de
feid this inlstitution is lost to the
majority and poorer portions of our
people, who will ther ee in the slaves
ofthe rie' only so many rivals in all
the dep art,ments of labor mid industry.
But open again tile slave trade. Let
this species of property become coin.
mnon and every white.ni a slave
owner and you at once erect ac efet
ual and insurmountable barrier to
every thing like abolition and fanati
cal sentiment in regard to this subject.
We do not inteiid, however, to d]is.
