1 TIOV OF BbAVERY IU TUB DISTItlCT
In 1828. a memorial for the Eradaal abolition
if slavery in this District, signed by upwards
it one thousand citizens, was sresentod la
To show tho flew taken of slavery by the
signers, we mako the following extract from
'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

AeniL 10th, lhiii.
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
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

"I have been much Interested in conversing
with many gentlemen direct from the Tennes

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

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
