State, of her day, and was never Veaton but by Timoleon, i
except when she broke down at Savannah.—Mark Time
beat Aratus, Washington and others, on the Tree Hill1
course, Va., and was never beaten in this State but by Bci- j
trand, and was of distinguished Turf notriety, both in S. j
Carolina and Virginia. Lamballc won the Handicap,
purse at Columbia in 182f), mile lu-ats, the best 3 in 5, at
seven beats, beating Sally Taylor, Lady Lightfoot, Lady

FOll TJtK FA'QUlllFuT
TO APPOMATTOX.
, I read your essay oil the question which lately agitate:
our Legislature, with a feeling allied to despair. Nottha
I was led l»y it to tlie conclusion which you arrive at;—
, that would l»e despair itself. But I lelt shocked and di >■
appointed that one so eminent for abilities and lor service
—one to wiioin 1 bad tbouglit Virginia could always look
I iu time oi lier “extremes! need,” should, on an occasion
like tiic present, when she is struggling to throw off the
heaviest curse tiiat ever rested on a people, not only with
hold his services from, but throw the weight ol his abilitici
against, so great and holy a cause.
That tho moral wrong, the various evils, and the possi
bility ol the abolition ol slavery, should have boon the
subject of open and earnest dehatu in the Legislature ol
Viiginia, is a circumstance certainly astonishing, whatevei
difference of opinion may exist as to its propriety. Tiiat a
state of tilings, involving considerations of such import
ance, concerning which it has hitherto been thought ne
cessary tiiat we should observe tlie caution and silence of
conspirators, should suddenly become the theme of solemn,
deliberate and unreserved discussion by tlie representa
tives of tlie people, is a moral phenomenon, requiring the
most powerful causes to produce it.
1 he chid ol these, you think you liavo found in the im
pression of our legislators, tiiat a panic had seized their
constituents iu general, in consequence of tho massacre ol
Southampton; and this belief you derive from the language
of certain resolutions offered to tho House of Delegates.—
I reject, with as much scorn as yourself, (lie idea tiiat tlie
people or \ irginia arc such miserable drivellers, as dial
their slaves can excite iu them tlie emotion of fear. But,
Sir, can you rcconcilo a result w hich, at the risk of youi
satire, I must bo permitted to call so glorious—at all
events, so important, with an agent so iguoblc and so in
considerable? Does tlie cause seem commensurate with
tlie effect? It cannot be believed. Sir, tiiat the Legisla
ture ot \ irginia would have taken so important a step, on
a subject the most nieiiientuous of all which could cornu un
der their consideration, urged merely by the motive which
you allege. Indeed, the internal evidence of the whole pro
ceeding is against this supposition. The manner and mat
ter ol this debate—nay, tile single fact that tho subject
was debated—are conclusive against tho idea tiiat fear, on
tlie part of either constituents or representatives, was the
principle which produced (lie discus-ion. Jt do;‘s seem to
me, that a mind far less penetrating than yours, may dis
cern emu., li.r tl.iu .........., ..f ...... I ! . .
deeply laid than the one which you have picked up from
the surface;—a cause, too, infinitely more creditable to
the intellect and-to the hearts of our legislators This
cause may, I think, be found in the long continued exis
tence of a just sense of the overwhelming evils of slavery,
gradually occupying tho public mind, and awaiting an op
portunity ol being expressed.—And what opportunity more
tit than tiic one which presented itseit? what occasion
better calculated to call forth an expression of thissenli
ment in the most enorgotic terms which language affords,
than so terrible an exhibitidn of at least one ,,f the evils ot
slavery? Instead, therefore, of attaching such undue im
portance to this isolated occurrence—instead of exalting it
into tho chief source ol that torrent whoso course you so
much deprecate, I think it fur more philosophical to regard
it merely as tho toucli o( tho rock which called tho waters
forth, l’or it is a truth, deeply rooted in tho constitution
ot our nature, that no moral cause, however potent—no
principle, however grand—has an agency in stimulat
ing to immediate action, to be compared in power to that
I of a single physical event.
So far, then, from ascribing this development of public
opinion to tlm liuso motive ot fear, 1 would assign as its
cnusos. i.oniu ot the noblest und most clev.\tad principles of
our nature ; a desire to free a portion of the human race
from bondage—to eradicate from our society an evil which
sits like an incubus on its prosperity, paralyzing and wilii
| eiing all its energies, moral and physical—in,I to remove
| from our system of polity, a feature' which contradicts its
principles, deforms its beauty, and deranges its harmony.
Such are the causes which your charity, if not your judg
ment, might have suggested; and in consideration of which,
however mistimed you might have thought the philanthro
py—however mistaken the patriotism—you might have
excused, if you could not approve, in your fellow citizens,
the open expression of their thoughts.
For myself, as a citizen of Virginia, I exult in tho
fact, that tho legislature have not been afraid to look tho
monster in the face—that they have at length removed tho
, antiquated mass of prejudice and mystery which has so
j long enveloped the subject, and which you aro sosolicitous
I to replace. I rejoice that they have broken through what
seciued an established principle—that it was an evil which
j must not he touched, even to lie cured; and that they have
resolved to essay the ta sk, gigantic though it lie, of reinov
in<r thi* nvil
ll is a consoling fact, that men in (his age are not so
much under the influence of long existing prejudices, and
venerable errors, as for ages they have been—men are not
now, like children, to be scared by raw-heads-and-Moody
bones, from (lie accomplishment of any object in which
the welfare of society is involved. You may call it “the
march of intellect,” or “the lights of the age,” or “mo
deni philanthropy,” or give it any other appellation which
fancy or scorn may suggest;—the fact is neverthe
less so. And here, by the way, let me remark, that it there
is any one infirmity of our nature more unfortunate in its
tendency than another, it is the propensity to a sari with
ridicule tho most disinterested exercise of tire loftiest vir
tues.
Hut, though the spirit ol improvement an ! tho prompt
ings of philanthropy may and will be ridiculed, ihey may
j not and will not be repressed. The mind which is braced
I to assert and to maintain a righteous can c, is not to be
shaken by ridicule. Not even, Sir, your powerful satire
will l>e aide to deter those who have attacked the gloomy
fabric of slavery, from an energetic prosecution of theii
glorious efforts to raze it to its foundations.—At least I
trust in God it will not!
In the course of your critical and witty remarks on the
extracts which you have culled from various speeches de
livered in the Legislature, you animadvert on some of the
opinions expressed, in terms which might lead one tosftp.
pose that you admit no evilsincident to slavery; but as von
do not express yourself fully upon this point, I reject tin
conclusion as alike discreditable to your judgment, am
your feelings, and only lament that you have thought il
consistent with your duty as a member of society, to exert
yotir distinguished abilities, not to free it from (lie curse,
but to persuade your fcllow-titizens that the hand of fate
has fixed it irrevocably upon them; and that as it Is vain
to struggle, all that can be done, is just to keep it from
overwhelming them. But, Sir, I hazard nothing in assert
; mg, that the most powerful etrort of human wisdom wil
i avail nought to stay the progress of this curse, or to aver
a tremendous issue, ifiliat effort be not directed to its eradi
I ration.— For it is a rinse which increases. Each yem
I adds another and a stronger roil;—and, that eventually
I we must be crushed, appears inevitable, if wo contemplate
! for a moment the attitude in which we arc placed by it.
Society naturally resolves itself into three classes.—Thr
1 first comprehends professional men, capitalists and largi
landed proprietors; tho second embraces artisan* an
small proprietors; and the third is composed of common la
borers. Now, we are a society placed in the anoinnlow
predicament of being totally without a labeling class
for all our labor is performed by slaves, who constitute n<
part of that society, and who, quoad that society, may hi
j regarded n<r brute:* or as machines. This circumstnnci
operates directly as a check upon the Increase of whiti
I population. For, as some intelligence or proper'y is re
| quired to enable a man to belong to either of tho (wo first cl.is
scs above enumerated, (and which I have remarked, ari
the only classes which wo have,) and a* no one wlthordi
' nary self-respect can submit to sink below them, and be
I come outcasts, tbn immediate tendency ot tho supernume
rary members is to emigration. This want of a laboring
! class tends lik'-wise to overstock tho other two, and there
| by to reduce the compensation of the professional man ami
! the mechanic to a minimum. kf ultiludes of tioth these classJ
I es, being consequently f >rced to l.ilmr for a bare subdsfence,
| they arc of course also forced to restrain the natural inclin-a
j lion to marry and have families. Thus are two powerfu
| causes constantly acting to retard the progress of whit*
! population, while that of the Idack population is stimulate*
to the utmost. The disproportion between tho t-.vo -lasso
must therefore be continually augmented, until at h-ngtl
in the natural course of events, the whites must be over
j whelmed.
The moral effect ol this imperfect state of society is nr
less marked. Those not possessed ofintelligencc or means f<
aequirean art or a profession, and, morcovei who uo un
able or unwilling to emigrate, constitute a dead Weight upon
I society. Not able to earn a decent subsistenc* by com
j mon labor, because the occupation of common lahoters i>
engrossed by slaves, and (even w ere this otherw ise) with
held by pride tiom ttti employment which would place
• hein on such degraded lev* I, tlj»*y gradually become
abandoned, corrupt mid debused. Ignorance and poverty
l combine to chain tlictti i’*.ivu to a state ot iniscrv au<l vice,*
from which they rarely a:iso, A very slight observation
ol tlio lowest cl.is: .»! our white population will, I tear,

| dceiniiblo w retclieilness,
I bus tar I have spoken of fids subject only in its mime *
, dliile hearing on society—it is however capable of nssuin
; ing an aspect far more momentous and imposing. A
: glance at the two poiitcal parties which divide this great
i Republic, informs (is that this division is essentially be-'
. tween tho slave-holding States on the one hand, and the
| Kon-alave-holdiiig Stiles on the other. This cmi
scarcely bo an accidental coincidence. On the contrary.
: it can, I think, he shewn that the diflerelioe of |>oliticu[
j sentiment which exists, is the direct result of this very
! difference ol situation; hut to do this would ni'piire more
! lime than 1 have at present to bestow. L.et it, however,*
he conceded, and how irresistible do the considerations be
come which urge the removal of this source of political
contention. I lie continually Increasing rancor and animos
ity which mark the contests of these (Wo parties are matter
ot deep concern to every lover of his country, tor they two
plainly point to the natural result of a conflict between
trreenneileable interests. That result is nothingness than
disunion ! The downfall of our stupendous fabric! The
crushing of the hopes of every friend of his species, who'
now looks with an anxious and prophetic eye to this repub
lie to ligl.t other lards on the path to freedom und self
government.
Shoe.Id Virginia then take the lead hi rooting Olit from
her bordors this fruitful source of so many ills, ami should
the whole South follow her example, what lustre would
ho added to that character which now constitutes her proud
pre-eminence and makes her son* exult in their birth
right ! !• or to her, would he due the glory of preserving
that union which she so essentially contributed to esta
blish, and which is the vital principle of our system.
i ho union ot these States can ho preserved only by
rendering as nearly us may be, the interests of all homoge
neous; ami tho tirst and greatest step towards producing
■ this effect, will he to make our population homogeneous.
But you ask it tho lights ot property' are to ho disregard
ed? 1 shall not hero discuss the right to this or to any
other species of property. I shall even admit, for the sake
of argument, that society though urged by invincible ue
cessity, has not the right to alter its own institutions; and
1 l say to those who arc not willing to yield a portion of their
• property for the public good, that 1 would not take their
| property without compensation; upon the principle that
i in u causo hko iliis l would euii.it all, and run rountur to*
• ho prejudices aud interests ol none. It is a Cause which
will require unanimity ol reeling and of action.
i would then annually apply to the purchase and remo
val ol tho slave population; itr tho first place, our propor
tion of tho proceeds of the public lauds, and then that por
tion of any surplus which might remain in the Treasury
ol tho United States, to which we would he justly entitled
—(supposing of course,That Congress should yield tooui
equilahlo domain! ) If an amendment to the Constitution'
of tho United States, ho required to authorize the pay
ment of this sin plus to any State, for any specific purpose,
I would ;e>k that such an amendment be made.
Tho Tariff of which wo com p I r in so much, maybe sc
reduced as to remove all actual oppression, and yet a sur
plus may bo left adequate to the exigency. Sdrcly to el
met an object like thi,, il*« iinrtizan would r.bate his fervid
1 hostility U> a measure, the burthen imposed by which is
\ inappreciably light, when composed with that,sought to he
I removed."
'1 hat these moans will ho adequate, will I think appear/
*(• we examine the subject fora moment in detail. It will
bo foil ml oil Miialrzing if.« i-omponeiif parts of population,
that rather less than two-ktihs ol it, constitute lliat class
w hich produces ti>o actual increase of population; (the re
maining throe fifths consistin'; of old persons and oftlioso
undor tho ngool puberty.) '1 wo-fifths then of the annual
increase ol society belongs naturally to Hurt class._Let,
then, two-fifths, or rather inure of the afmft .il Increase of the
slaves bo remoVtdJ and let those two-fifths bo all selected
from the producing class, and it i* evident lliat the whole
increase must ho kept down. It will not require, therefore,
in order to produce this effect, the annual removal of tho
! entire increase: and thu, one great difficulty In the scheme
of abolition, dwindles to one of inconsiderable magnitude.
Pecuniary means hi ing provided, the other difficulties
may ho surmounted by -zeal, energy and discretion. You,
indeed, consider them insurinountabl; but, sir, hostility to
any mcajuio however Ic.t.il Ic, is known to engender great
, ingenuity in suggesl.iig difficulties and arranging stumb
ling-blocks. it was then to be expected that abilities,
| such m yours, diroctod against a subject nreirriiiiit with
I uuiicuiiy, would oxIuhK ,*o imposing an array of impndi
J inanW and danger*, i*s to deter the lukewarm and startle,
tho timid. Hut I hope that the hikefrarm and the timid
alone will be convinced.
1'ho danger* arising from excitement among the slaves
duiiiig the process of removal, may, I apprehend, ho
guarded against, by means similar to those which you mjk
ge-t, ns constmlly necessary to keep them in subjection.
; indeed, I very much doubt whether less efficacious means
would not suffice.
The chief ditflculty which yon present, is the fact, that
wo should ho removing a population which now performs
the labor ot the community, u iiilo there would he no influx
<>1 whiles to supply their place, hr have already seen
! fhat Hut existence of the slave population acts as a check
j upon the increase of lie* white-: now a; this check would*

; mg class of whit* s, whose interest will predominate over
tho petty consideration, tha* they are for the moment on a
i level with a class of men who are about to pass away and
j return no more to annoy them.
J,ot me not be told what some have asserted, that
Macks are necessary to stand the climate of the South_
| that men cannot inure their bodies toanv thing, much less
i that men horn in a climate, cannot work in that climate,
j It is repugnant to nature and to the fact.
I Irus will sdl fears be at end, as to a supply of labor to
! replace what shall have been removed; and limit, too, shall
1 w*! Have society restored to its natural snd hfalthlul state,
i That constituent which it wanted, viz: a laboring popula*
| tion, will bo supplied, and every man will be able to find
an appropriate station. None will bo forced to wander
j vagabonds around tho confines of society, finding no class
! which they can enter, because for the' one which they
should have entered, there is substituted an ahtikiciajl
svktfm of labor to Which they cannot attach themselves.
Industry will sum od to indolence, Which we see and
know to be the concomitant of slavery; and from indus
try will result good morals:—For occupation is tho pa
, rent of morality, as surely as indolence is the “root of
evil.”
, But to enumerate all tho happy results which might ul
timately be trared to (lie aboil ion of slavery, would far
, outgo the limits of a newspaper e;*ay,
Tln-re is one view ot this snhject which seems to mo to'
demand peculiar con [deration. Tho profits of agricultu
ral labor In the slave holding States, are already below si
milar profits in othei States, (I include not, of course, tho
profits arising from the cultivation of sugar—these ar«
kept up by artificial means.) -The fact is, that white la
I bor has been encroaching on slave labor for more than half a
century. 1 lie sy stem <>t rigor which was necessary toovrr
rome the disadvantage ari ing from the want of moral in
I ci olive in the slave, has been gradually relaxed as thfl
,! scntiiiu nts of slave-bol lets have changed; until now, (and
, it is with exultation that t say if,) public opinion would
j frov. n with Indignation upon an attempt to re-establish that
| system.
Tho amount of labor, therefore, performed by a slave,
I j may be regarded as a minimum; and the degree of swr
, rtillarifc ncri *ary to produce even that, is h largo addl
! lion to the expcn«e of slave labor in general. Tho dispro
portion between these two classes of labor, must progress
j ivily increase; for the expense of slave labor t an never
■ be materially diminished; whereas, as population advance*
; in the non-slave-hohlhig Slates, the supply ot white labor
w ill press upon the demand, and its wages necessarily do
j rrea»e, while til the same time (he amount of labor por
1 formed by a white man, will approximate to a maximum.
