It is difficult to ascertain the exact number of
sVOn-alavehobieni ia ICentaeky.
The whole population of the Slate, in 14H,
was 7T3,-00 ; of theee, I2,2i'i were slaves.
Tho fret population is then, 6'j72. Sup-
pcslng 150,j) of these (and this we suppose to
ba a Uir, i not a very large allowauce) to le iu
terested in Slavery, and we have left 4I7.M'
who hold no slaves.
There is yet another, and sairr test. Th.
PresidsnCsl election ia 141 wa the hottest w e
hare had these many years. We polled then, say
ne hundred and tweuty-five thousand voter.
These votes represeut, what may be called, the
set ice population iA Kentucky. Suppose we
at down twentytive thousand of them, again a
fair, if not a very large allowance, a fciave-hold-
rs. We hate, them, one hundred thousand
voters in Kentucky who have no slaves.
Let us ask, with these general facts before u:
1. Who are these noa-laveholder
2. What is their interest ?
3. How ran they best advance their interest '
We would say, before answering these question,
that we are obliged on these aud kindred ul-
JOCtS to speak gaaerally. WecannoJ Mop to notice
txcptit We know that there are among our
mechanics many day laborers, mho escape,
amid rlavcry, all its ills, as there are slaveholder
who rise above the influence of class, and the
institution itself. But for one who of the form
cr who escapes these ills, hundreds fall or suffer,
asd for one of the latter who does his duty, I. 'in
dreda say " let n alone, we are routeut a we
are" So again a to public opinion, as to Ijouis-
tr Je it mav be al! right, or nearly ao. tier voice
i for labor, and for every encouragement to la
bor. Vet the whole effect of Slavery may be fa
tally injurious over the State, so injurious as to
produce ssd results here. All that we ran do t
to notice these general results ; the txctjtimiu
the intelligent reader w ill make for himwlf. We
proceed.
1. Who are these non-slaveholders.
They are laborers. They work for theirdaily
bread. St. Paul said, " this we commanded
you, that if any man would not work, neither
should be eat." This law they recognize and
obey. Some of them are, doubtless, idler ;
many of them, from causes they do not control,
waste their energy, and squander their mean.
But, generally, they labor ; labor hard ; look
to labor a their only means of support ; are de
pendent upon it wholly for what they are, and
what they hope to be and to get. This is the
condition, of four hundred and forty-seven thou
and, ve hundred and twenty-eight persons,
at of five hundred aad ninety-se'Ven thousand,
five hundred and twenty-eight, of our whole
free population, or of one hundred thousand, out
f one hundred and twenty-five thousand, of the
disc men of Kentucky.
2- What is their interest ?
There cannot be a doubt here. Make any
Slaveholder judge, and take for this end the mot
ahre, and w shall hare but nt answer to this
question. It is to remove slavery. That fet
ters them. That cramps their energy and
crashes their hopes. That makes labor ditrrp
uUbU, and, ia this one curse, involves home,
ttsd all that U dear to theiu. No matter what
their let la, whether artisan day laborer, or hod-
arrssrs. kjr U . w,

They sever can be, as a class, what they
should be, without It. Yet, we may as well at
tsmpt to put a bar between the waves of the
am, and sever their fellowship, as endeavor lo
remove the ignominy which follows labor amid
erritade. Slavery ia the doom of the free
worker, and darkens all his hopes. It is a liv
ing scowl pen labor. Nor caa laboring men
frM themselves from it, or lift themselves above
It, or bo what the heart covets, without freedom.
Then ia no interest, then, religious, social, men
tal, or pecuniary, which does not appeal to
as9B-alavehelders against slavery, which does
not erg them to Oppose it ia every legal form.
which U not earnest, eloquent heart-searching

3. How shall they answer this appeal T How
draace their Interest T
There is a plain general answer to this question-Lot
thorn be true to themselves and to dMy.

we shall seek to prove it, to prove that there is
UO hone for either srifhAnf emsnsipsttsa, to

STaaDFa Aj. GoauAM, these many years ever
since have had control of the steam packets be
tween Iuiiville and Cincinnati. How they
have beeu managed, the public know full well.
Not an accident, scarcely, happened to them,
and no traveller, that we have ever met, has hes
itated about Mying that they were well officered
aad well manned. And at last, the old Commo
dores have sold out. Gosmax, ever attentive to
business, quiet yet energetic, aud Jacos Stra
itr.a, resolute iu enterprise, aud full of a true
sailor's generosity, have yieided their places to
younger men Thanks to them, say the united
traveling public, for the care, comfort, speed,
aud safety which they have secured to it !
Pence and happiness be with the old commo
dores, and those who retire with them, as under
a geutle press of sail, and with abundance in
the locker, they float dow n the stream of time,
sharing, they pass on, with the poor and
needy, and helping up the worthy and enter
prising !
And now for the new Commodores ! They
are well known to the public, and will du thtir
duty by it. We have not a more enterprising
set of men, or officers that w ill take more pains
to ensure speed and safety. Capts. Rogers, Bar

have skill and capacity, aud they have under
them as good clerks, engineers, pilots, &c., aa

Marshal Btigeaud's course in this land serins
to be marked bv a savssr f"",''r "
carsion to the Kabyl mountains, he ordered Til
lages to be devastated, and their inhabitants to
be put to the sword. At one town, containing
over 6X0 people, the work of murder was car
ried on with fiendish cruelty. Amid the shock
and confusion of indiscriminate slaughter aad
plunder, by the soldiery, a Kabyl chief rushed
up to the French commander, and, with prayer,
entreated him to stay his bloody hand. The
Marhal relented. Pillage was stopped, and the
lives of the wild African spared. Bugeand loves
to glut his spirit iu blood. He regretted, it is
said, that tlie Kabyl had not offered a stouter
resistance, "that he might have inflicted upon
them a severer lesson!"

Looking over a budget of letters, which the
publication of our pajs-r has called forth, (some
of which come from the Carolina and Georgia)
we have felt, more deeply than we ran express
th$ immense difficulties we have to encounter
and the entire singleness of purpose, we must
possess, or seek to possess, if we would do the
duty set bsfore us, faithfully. The most oppo
site view are suggested iu thsm. Priucipl
aa contradictory as may be, are pressed as the
only principles which can gain our uJ, or giv
the meed we seek. We have only to aay, will
the kindliest feeling, loone aud all, " We thank
yon deeply for your sympathy : we shall con
sider carefully your views; listen with respect
to every suggestion made ; bat, al the sani
time, we mut consult oar own conscience, ami
abide iu decree." Can we do more T Would
any just man have us do Ut f
Passing from these general considerations let
us notice, and answer, if we can, some of th'
Criticisms aud objection, which are made to ou
course.
1 . It is said, we make concession to slave hold
ers. Concessions ! W heroin and how T W
shall be jntt to thcni. But never do we mea
to yield up for them, or for anybody else, prin
eiple, right. True, we declared we should, iu
all that we might do or say, pay a proper regard
to their prejudices, seek to ward off all peril
which might beset them, weigh their interests
and be just, aud violate no right in attempting
to remove a wrong. But thi we consider prin
ciple, right christian principle, and we shall al
ways endeavor to act upon it. Are we, there'
fore, railed upon to wink at wrong, to cease
proving to the quick, error, to push cautiorraud
silence to insincerity, to do injustice, not bv
mhat we say, but by what we do not say ! Far
from it. We are free, and feel all the readier
aud stronger to battle every evil and siu aud
wrong from acting on this principle.
2. It U objoc.ted, again, that we are apologist
of slavery. Strange thi ! It is surely a mis
take. We may deceive ourselves ; perhaps do ;
hut such a purpose or thought has not even
crossed our mind. Apologists of Slavery ! No
freeman. North or South, should apologize to
any human being for the assertion, in it broad
est form, of liberty of speech. No Southern
man should stand bareheaded before Southern
men, and ak, as of superiors, whether he should
discuss slavery. The wrong and wretchedness
of the slave system are before us. We are dis
cunsing ilieiu Wr snail continue to discuss
them fearlessly. But we shall do it in a way to
gain the largest Southern audieuce ; to reach
the greatest number of master and uou-slave-hotder
: aud this, too, uot upou grounds of ex
pediency, but of principle, of that principle
which while it yields nothing, is careful to give
no just cause of offence or alarm, which concili
ates, but never compromises.
3. It is declared, betides, that we are opposed
to the anti-slavery inovemeut- Not iu any
form or haM ! Why on this we rest all our
hope. It is, a it has been, the true leaven of
liberty. God teaches us, through history, and
in all social movements, that even fanaticism iu
It worst form la made productive of good doe
advauce society, and elevate man. Who was
the Ana-Baptist T A fanatic, yet he helped to
gain lilvrly for Europe. Who the Puritan
A bigot, yet hi bigotry enabled us to win our
freedom. Be it, then, that the conduct of Anti
ISavery men has been full f error, still we
should uot he blind to their virtues, or the good
they have doue. We should never assail the
spirit-mover of reform. We, certainly, could
not condemn the first full declarers of the rights
of man, even by implication. We trust the
day may never be, wheu we shall deny the debt
of gratitude we owe them.
Let it be borne iu mind ( if it be we shall be
saved some trouble, aud much misnpprehensioul
that we speak to aud for Kentucky, and, a far
a we cau, to and for the South. This is our
field. We know that those who occupy it, must
plant themselves on the broad principle of right.
We shall try to do so. But we must not quit
this field, and if we have the strength to carry
out our plan, nothing shall force us from it.
We see in naked reality the trial position we oc
cupy. And we shudder at tho responsibilities it
involves ; but we shall strive to forget these, to
forget friendly cheer or hostile assault, to forget
every thing, as we ask, how shall we win free
dom for Kentucky and struggle, with all the
manhood God and Nature have given us, for
tills glorious consummation.

And how ha thi happened! Iu the usual
way. At first a band of small farmers settled
there. They grew, and the country grew w ith
them. But slaves began to increase; these small

poorer, and i liO we have this result.

useful. Some one has well said, that it was

vines were to be seen in the yard, and cluster
Ing over the house, in which they lived. W
are so constituted that the sight of beautiful
things, and the hearing of sweet music has an
effect to soften our hearts, to unbind our minds,

this battle of life, to produce flowers, and bird
song iu our heart' garden. So in society, when
we see in any society a love for the beautiful
thing of art, we are assured that it is capable of
higher things than the mere strife for gain. It has
arisen one step nearer perfection. It has often
happened that this has been the only redeeming
trait of an age otherwise unworthy, and utterly
contemptible, but il ha ofteuer been the rase,
that the age which has seen tlie highest in art,
has seen the greatest in religion aud morals.
The same age saw Michael Angelo and Luther.
The same age saw Thideas aud Socrates, Shak
speare and Bacon were co temporaries. It is for
thi reason that we have been glad to see iu this
city, a new iuterest for art. Our ArtsUuiou estab
lished some six month ago, has brought out all
the talent of the city, aud lias likewise called
public attention to the slate of the arts The
public taste is improving. The rooms of the
Art Union are much frequented by all clause,
and amongst all the hurry of business, and
amid all the efforts consequent upon the creed
of gain, a thought of something higher and bet
ter than these, is generated in the bosoms of
many. In my future; letter, aa I may have oc
casion. I win y swiMcihing more respecting
our artists, and their peculiar styles, believing
that if I shall in any way be instrumental in
cultivating in any one a taste fur these things.
or in introducing to the public, to those who
may be your readers, the names of some who
may yet be famous. I shall have done good
service. Yours, W. J. S.
An exchange paper states that a pretty child
a charming little three year old was not long
ago presented with a nursery kitten saved from
the nsyade that awaited the birth of its brothers
and sisters. A short time afterwards the child's
mamma added two members to the family circle,
in the shape of twins. On being taken into the
nursery to see them, she looked from one to the
other with much curiosity. Then, patting one
of their little cheeks with her rosy finger, she
said: " I think we will keep thi one, papa!"

We are safsried that few dream of the num
ber of slave tautaciputed by w ill ever the South.
It i chiefly d-tne by jvlignu men who think
slavery wronj. and li. ar-- uuwilliug to meet
their Cod w lliout fir-l making, according lo
their view, their souls guillb therein. But
emancipation is uot coufiiied to them. Very
many moral and kind-hearted people, from a
variety of motive, but t-tdl through fear that
the holding of human beiug may involve them
ill misery hereafter, set their slaves free, before
they die.
Nor is emancipation couiiued to auy Slate.
It is made in all. Even iu those where the law
forbid it, a method is devised, practically, to
give the bond freedom. True, the free blacks
are lessening in uuiiiImt in ihe more ultra pro-
clavery States; but this arises from the severe
laws w hich have been pussed agaiutt them. No
free negro, for instance, that leaves South Cum
I iiia. can return, without being sold as a flare.

rhtlercM's MTaks-Parents.
On opening the People' Journal theolhrr day,
we saw lots of uotice of school books, Boy
Books, aud oig for the Nursery. We like
this. It is a gjod sign wheu ttn-demaud for lit
tle uffair for little folks is active aud increasing.
Wheu the boy and girl love to r-ad, the man
and woman will he sure to think.
But in this connection we saw sometk ing for
the Father aaJ Mother. It wa in the Si-ot-tishdilaect,iuurt,yet
iutdligible enough for the
English reader- And it is so good that we can
not help priuting it. Who the piece is written
by, we don't know. That don't matter. It gives
parent good lulvice, under the lo ad of "Prece pt
and Example," and we dou't think they cau d o
better, if they have a spare inomeut, than study-
it out:
Lit precept and example
Aye hand iu hand be seen.
For gude advice is plenty.
And uuco easy gi'eu :
And buirnit-a iu the uptak'
Ye ken are seldom slow.
So aye, whate'er advice ye gi'e,
A glide example show.
They're gleg at imitation.
As ilka a ne may ken :
The lasie a' would women, he
The laddies would be men ;
So leat'i them kindly by the hand
The road that they should go.
And aye, whate'er at viee ye gi'e,
A gude example show.
And should you promise aught to them.
Aye keep your promise true.
For truth a precious lesson is
That they inaiiu learn frae you;
And ne'er reprove a naughty word
Wi hasty word or blow.
But aye, whate'er advise ye gi'e.
A glide example show.
And so to home-horn-trutii and love
Ye'll win ilk bonuie bairn.
For as they hear the old cock craw.
The young are sure to learn :
They'll spurn at mean hypocrisy,
WY honest pride they'll glowj
And bless the parents' watchfu rare,
"h gude example show.
But on looking close, we saw something more
which we thought wor'H noticing. It was a
dissertation on managing children. These little
imp puxzle us. They are all of thenr phrenolo
gist, niesmerizers, sharp discerners. "A gude
example show." There is no other alternative.
If w e pretend to be very wise, they will make
us feel our folly ; if we affect to be oue of them,
they will be sure to unmask oar hypocrisy ;if we he
aught else than truthful, natural beings, we can
not esx-ape their exposure. This is the wisdom of
the heart. They judge by wine sort of instinct
as to what we are, and what we are about, and
what we mean to do, and they judge rightly.
Believing in this theory, Mas. Howirr iu re-
Tietring Nav-wry Rhyssss, Children's Hooks,
Boys Books, Aic, Ac, say:
Singleness of heart, love, and just a much
learning as will keep yon in advance of the
child, while you go hand in hand with it, tire
the true reqnidte in writing for children; and if
you have a spice of fun in you all the better;
for while children love a piithetic story, they
love still better to be made cheerful and happy .
Above all things, in a child' book, do we es
chew too much talk about religion; a child ia
not a sectarian, nor a polemic at the same time
no human beings are so title,! tu receive and un
derstand the true spirit of unpretending real re
ligion as littl.i children. The beautiful, thinking-no-evil
life of a loving, innocent, happy
child is a perpetual hymn to the Almighty; tlie
child praises him in its single-minded joyous
ness, iu the flowers it plants in its little garden,
in the birds it feeds with the crumbs that fall
from the table, in its ready pity for the poor and
the distressed, in the confidence and faith it has
in the word of its mother, and in its tenderness
for its younger brothers and ilers. Alas that
the environment of ill-regulated tempera, thinly
disguised falsehood, many a petty weakness, and
many a master vice, should so soon sully the
brightness of the young spirit which comes to
us with more affinity to good than evil; which
comes to us, as Wordsworth says, trailingrloud
of glory, from God which is its home.
Bat, however, to return to our books: the tru
est way to tca:h a child religion is not through
books, but to encourage it own genuine love of
all which is lovely, and pure, and good; to let it
find happiness in works of love and goodness,
and let il feel and know that by these it proves
its great and glorious kinship to God. For the
rest, make the child aa happy as yon can; let its
books be cheerful rather than learned; let them
have a pure, loving, healthy spirit, for then th-y
are full of the spirit of the child, and fear not,
anxious mother, who wouldst that thy child
ahould be a prodigy of erudition and piety the
spirit of the teucber will be In the books, though
neither thou nor the child miy be at the mo
ment aware of it.
Taw tlsllaj
The'- W one, whatever mry be br speett

can make a man truly great, or a nation truly
happy, unless possessed of a religious spirit 1 1

only b'tsis of au enduring social growth.
'And yet there are few, very few, evea of
those who profjs religion, who act out this
spirit, in their daily walk and life. In trade,
politics, and business of I if-, it fat measurably
forgotten or trodden uuder foot ; aud ia the
Llghc concerns of the soul, it is too often used
as a cloak lo shield our selfishness from our
selves, or hide it from the world.
Were we asked, therefore, what il was, that
uio-l created skepticism or unbelief, we should

tliose who profess to lie religious uiea. It is
tuir faltering which causes so utaay lo stum
ble. It is their impiety iu doing, or as doing.

We never look upon a city from Ih distance
aud f-ee its tall spires looniiug up towards hea
ven, a if poiuting the way thither, or hear tlie
loll of their bells, as Ibey fall sweetly upou the
ear, inviting all to come to the house of prayer.
that we do uot feel au abiding faith iu the safe
progress of Ihe human family. The Bible is
there held up as the only standard. Oo"d men
are sppointed to explain it truth, and enforce
them. And if this be done, how caa Ihe hu
man heart f til lo receive, or the human family
forget lo practice them '
But enter that house of Ood. and listen, day
after day, to those who teach there. You hear
of wars around you. He who died to save, gave
a his command, lure ye sac mnuther. And
they who fill our pulpits, or they who occupy
the pew around them, seek lo enforce this
command Arr miuiin-r aud people uick to
seize every opportunity by which they may per
suade men, as their master did, to lore each oth
er1 A few brave preachers may do this. A
few brave congregations may demand of their
minister this fidelity. But, wherever war is
popular, aud the shout goes up from the multi
tude for victories won in it, the pulpit is loo of
ten silent, and its religious upirrers too often
f.tithless. Thy dan- uot grapple, with the
mighty vice, because it seems so mighty. They
dar? not wrestle with it, because they fear they
will be overthrown- The war, consequently,
careers onward in triumphant success, and the
very boys ujwn our knee are taught to look
upou human butchery as a great display of hu
niau virtue.
Again, you know that slavery, au evil of
dreadful magnitude, and fearful complexion, is
fastened upon u w ith an iron grip, needing the
religious might and wisdom of all to snap it
asunder, and rid us of it. In the church, if any
where, you would naturally look for the exist
ence and exertion of this combined powr. Bui
a you wait day after day, aud, listen for the
wotd of counsel, strong ia its spirit, or tlie
wold of reproof, made keener by its kiuduesi.
you will find, only as exception, a few minis
ters with the courage to speak, or meet only a
few cougregatiou, with the courage to hear,
thi counsel or thi reproof. The evil is wide
spread. It is fixed iu every household. And
there it is rooted deeper, and stronger, because
the men of God dare not open their lip; aud
hence our very children, as we teach them the
d.x-tnue of doing unto others m thev would he
done by, believe slavery lo be all right.
Rut there is a truer feeling, at th-- bottom, in
the community, than most of u suppose. Th
religious spirit of the country ha enlighten!
men consciences. They know the right, whe
ther they pursue it or not. Imagine, then, a
young man, ingenuous, earnest, true, atteuding
every Sablmth day at one of our churches where
nothing is said of populur sius imagine oue of
maturer are, aud stronger intellect, yet alike
good, silling thus under Ood'a alluf aud hearing
not a word uttered against the monster evils of
the day, aud ask, thou lover of religiou. what
muM be their feelings, thoughts, determiua
tionsT lio one step further, and look at those
who throng holy pluces, because thev fear to
stay away, and would be, yet know uot how to
become, religious. They see the minister falter
when he should speak out; they know his con
gregation sympathize with bim, because they
would not be troubled; and yet they- hear it
proclaimed by both, that God's law is irrevoca
ble, and must be obeyed by all. What must
they think, say, do ' This want of fidelity to
truth, more than any thing else, we f -ar, turns
awavjthese rlasees from th- gospel, and makes
doubters, skeptics, unbeliever! Aud who is at
fault? Before t'.ie Kir of Heaven, who will be
held blameless? We judge not. Our prayer is
for the fallen, iu or out of the church.
Iel us not be misunderstood. We do not
w ih to hear from the pulpit invective, denun
ciation, or violence of any kiud. We ask from
it simply, fidelity to truth. IVe any one say,
it ranuot always be practised ? Then cast away
the Bible! For that book tells u that he wbo
puts hi trust in God cannot fall or fail II may
be hard to practice this fidelity; it may require
self-sacrifice; but what of that? He is ao
christian warrior who does not staud ready,
whenever called upoj, for truth's sake, to make
it. But then it will be rare, indeed, in a com
munity like ours, where men are dispose,! to
reverence holy places, and to hear patiently ind
consider calmly, the won! f iithfully spoken in
them, that such self-sacrifice will be required.
Honesty wear a winning look. Truth, when
spoken rightly, falls upon the ear and heart, as
a friendly voice, even if it startle and ehok. It
will not do, then, for minister or congregation,
when they err thus, to speak of danger, er plead
in their defence, their loss of influence. This
cannot shield them, or save the multitude they
have led astray, even if there were threatening
so angry a to bode their destruction.
We trust no one will suppose that we wish to
lessen ministerial influence, or weaken the bind
ing force of the religions spirit upon the Uad.
We would extend the one, and deepen the other,
when faithfully exerted, or religiously acted
upon, until it should away every heart. For
this reason, we speak plainly. Suppose that
every pulpit ia ear laud altered truly the word
suppose each minister, in our State, sinking
bis allegiance to man in his fealty to God,
should, plainly, but ia love, i a form hi congre
gation what he thought on prevailing or popular
sins, snd how, aa christians, they should act
with reference to them. Suppose pastor and
people, quitting Tague generalizations, and
empty common place, should make religion vi
tal by doing what it taught, aad acting out
what they believe can they, can any oue doubt,
a to the results? Will not our very unregea
erate hearts tell as, that, aader this christian
conduct, man would love hie neighbor as him
self; and banish wars from the earth; that he
would do unto others as he would have them do
to him; and thus make human freedom uoiver
s:d ? Are we not sure, as if informed by uner
ring instinct, that this fidelity to truth would
convert doubters into believers, skeptics, into
followers, aud unbeliever, into worshippers, of
Ihe living God ? Wo pray ministers and pro
fessing men to think seriously ef these thing.
For the common well-being here, we pray it,
and for theirs hereafter.
