In 1828. a memorial for the Eradaal abolition if slavery in this District, signed by upwards it one thousand citizens, was sresentod la Congress. To show tho flew taken of slavery by the signers, we mako the following extract from (be rwlitlon: 'Tho existence nrnoncr us of a distinct class if people, who, by their condition as slavra, are deprived of almost every Incentive to virtue; and Industry, and abut out from many of the Sources or light and knowledge, has an evident tendency to corrupt tho morals of tho people, and to damp the spirit of enterprise, by ac customing I ho rising generation to look with Contempt upon honest labor, and to depend for Support too much upon the lalior of others. It prevents a useful and Industrious class of peopln from witling among us, by rendering the means of siibnlslence more precarious to the laboring class of whites. It dlmiDlflhos the resources of tho commu. (illy, by throwing the earnings of the poor Into the conrs of the rich; thus rendering the for mer di pendent, servile, and Improvident; while the latter are tempted to become, in the sarao proportion, IuiuiIoub and prodigal. " inai mere disastrous results now from tne existence of slavery among us is sufficiently conspicuous, when we contrast the languishing condition of this Dlstilct, and the surroundine country, with the prosperity of thoso parts of Ihe Union which are less favored In point of Climate ana locution, dih messed witn a iree aod Industrious itopulation " We would, therefore, resnectliillr orar that these grievances uwy claim Ihe attention of your nonoraoie body, and tnat a law or uon grera may be enacted, declaring that all chil dren of slaves, born in Ihe District ci Columbia after the fourth day ot July, eighteen hundred And twenty eight, shall be Iroo at the age or twenty five years; and that those laws, which euithortze tbo selling of supposed runaways for their prison fees or maintenance, may be re pealed."

I udtnlt, with your correspondent on the ubovo subject in your Issue of yesterday, that tbis question of " property In man" is a very llcklUh one. James Madison, we arc told, would not permit the idea of " property in man" to be Incorporated into Ihe Federal Con stitution ; neither would Ihe framers ot that In strument permit the word "slave" to be placed in ii ; but does not every well Informed man know that, notwithstanding tbis undeniable ,antl-slavery feeling and action on the part of our fathers, there Were "slaves," and they were held, bought, sold, exchanged, taxed, traded and barlered precisely as " otboi" prop erty was, in Vie Hales inhere it existed Now isi us not cut ou our nose to spite our lace. iidi imog never pays, ii is useless io aucmpl to cover up the light with a bushel. The fact that slaves are property, not only in Ibe slave States, but hi) federal law In the District of Columbia to-day, and In Ino tree States by tne provisions of the fugitive elavo law, Is as patent to all as that the noon-day sun Is at the meridian. I never heard of a Republican pardon me, I mean an antl-elavery man who admitted the " right" ol slavery or property In man ; but I never hate seen a man so blind to laa as to assert mat ine slaves were not " prop erty," just liko horses or-cows or wheat. " Tacts are chlels that uinna ding, And canna be disputed." Take an example to prove the faU, I utterly repudiate thu " riffbt" but admit the ' initrhl" as lollows : Mr. B , ol G orgia, owns (what a man owns is properly; a nunurcd slaves, lie can trade (" swap ') ten of tbi m for a farm : ho can sell ten ol tbem for cash ; be can ex change teu of them for wheat ; ho can buy u mill and give a mortgage on ten ol them ai security lor tne purcnaso money, ii no laus to pay the aforesaid money, the sheriff (or other proper officer) can, according to " due nroccsa ot law." proceed to sell the blaves (uot their services) lo tho highest bidder. In his 'will, ne can give and bequeatn tnts property just as be could a bouse and lot, a span of biys, or a (arm; nnd lastly, after be Is dead, ami has gono where pro-slavery trai ors go, the dower right lu that property is as undmlablo as to any other property owned by Mr. B. Hence It it property, i nai is ine utc oi u ; ana asser lion to tho contrary Is false. 1 have always held that tho tenure to this property came iu Ihe principle of " might over right." On the vunie grounds might be wide property, nnd sold andbougbt, jiiBt as I sell and buy u horse. Of course. I would oppoeo tho M principle," but on the same plan th tt a man guts to the penitentiary, I would very readily acknowledge tho lact, because I could not help myself. I might run away, if 1 could ; ty, II you began abusing a horse, ho might ruu away both would be property. Mow, wnat is gatneu uy covering mis inaucr up! Everybody fcnoicj they are Just as much property as the money paid lor them. Ohio might prohibit the bringing into that State "br Durham cattle, and declare tho penalty of their introduction to be a fine of cxactlv the value of such properly, to be ascertained by selling It at public sale-in other words, annul the riht lo it in iroiirty; but Durham cattle would be property in New Yoik, nevertheless. Now. what Is the const iiuence of our not calling things by their right names ot our whims " SiiDnose the jforemild Mr. II, ol In orgia, owns his hundnd negroes, worth, say, S 1 U0,000; nut no owns noining else, us nan sum ui farms and mills and stock, gotten $100,000 In gold, and bought his 100 negioes. Of course, be (with nearly all elau-holdere) Is ono ol the main pillars of, or a sympathiser with, the re hellion. But our whim exempts him from a ccnt'B taxation II his negroes are not prop erty, then he baa no Income no more than a Ibid has, at least, and lew thieves will be taxed on their 111 gotten .nolle. Helper estl mill, the value of the Biavca In the Uulted States at xixlecn hundred million dollars. As long us we jtow numan beings lo oe neM us property, lei us tax Ihose who assume to oirn thi in until that assumption becomes a jtcunbui burden upon thiir pocket.

The object has been attained by the produc , flora of a material which ' properly named boltonlzed Sax. The flax Is pulled in the Held hy a machine which does the work or forty men.

I JfSrh gentleman, while on his way from bouisvllle to Cincinnati, April 7th, writes to a Irlcnd in this cily as lollows: "I have been much Interested in conversing with many gentlemen direct from the Tennes see river. One, an old merchant frum Savan nah, Tenn , says the rebels are burning all the cotton In that country. There is a deserter too Irom the rebel army. He has been before tbe Federal officers, and Imparted much infor mation. He has a list of all Jhe regiments at Corinth, Miss. He pays they avtrage about 701) men to the regiment Ue csthn ites Ibelr force at Corinth, all summed up, nt 90,000. He says tbe Southern army are kept lu Ihe most perfect Ignorance In regard lo the progress of tbe Federal arms. Ho was utterly astonished to bear of the evacuation of Manassas, and many other points. He saya he has been in tbe ribel service seven months, and has been paid thirteen dollars, which he cold for three dollara In good money." The above was written on board Ihe steam boat Superior, and cornea from r person of strict veracity.
