We publish, in another cohamn,-so
much of the presentmyent of thve G'and
Jury of' Williamsburg Districb as re

ment. of the present prohibition- on
the African Slave trade. The pre
sentimint is pointed. forcible and full
ofsound truth and good policy. We
regard- it as a great and growing evil
to the cause of the South and to, tire
instittit'i of slavery that tills property
is every day rising in value and in
fint, has al'ready become so high as to
induce those owning b)ut. a few slaves
to part, with themn for the money of
the large Capitalist of the country.
For whenever this spt eies of property
is entirely concentrated in the hands of
a few wealthy planters, the strongest
of all inducements to protect and do
fend thi insititution is lost to the
majority and poorer portions of our
people, who will then- ee in the slaves
ofthe ricli' only so many rivals in all
the departments of labor and industry.
But open again the slave trade. Let
this species of property become con
mn and every white-mmi a slave
owner anld you at once erect ao efl'eet
ual and insurmountable barrier to
every thing like abolition and fanati.
