W e are talking about the moral, not the le- gal character of slavery The titlo to every ; slave originated in violence and robbery, t and its continuance has no other moral char acter. There can be no mistake about the rightful ownership of a human beirg. He belongs to himself. Uccause my father or mother was reduced tn the condition of a slave, does that justify my being reduced to the same condition c f brutism ?

"He that steah-th n man nr.d selleth him.or it he be found in his hands," that is, in his possession, "he shall surely bo nut to death " This rnfiet mont .nln be rut to death this transaction out of the catalogue of or- dinary crime, and brands it with peculiar reprobation. Other forms of theft could le atoned f -r by returning four-fold ; thi claimed thc forfeiture of lite itself, thus ma. king it a capital offence. No squirming of ! sophistry cancel round this. There it I stands, the estimate of the Jewish Scrip- j tures of the crime of trafficking in Imir.ati flesh. So once thought the l'resbyterian churcu, wnen tney aeciareu siavehoiomg to i be a violation of the eighth commandment, ' So thought President Edwards, when he i declared the slaveholder guilty of mansterd j iug every day. This was the consti'utional i law of the Jewish Commonwealth. No other statute could contravene it, any more than a state or territory law could annul a ! provision of the Constitution of the I'nited ctates. All thc instances of buying and selling relied upon by the advocates of si very are confined to the person bought and thc person sold.
