The iusurrecliou iu India seems to have awakenec
the home government of England, to an nuxiousense
of the duDger of disaffection among the colo
uies. And well it uiny excite the interest, it not th?
inost eerious appreheusiou of all who wish Great Britain
9 God-speed on her mysterious mission?whethei
of amelioration and liberty, or of extortion, imposi
' tion and ultimate despotism, (lie It u'nre alone can
determine. The wealth and strength of the British
Empire are dependent almost entirely upon its pro
Ytncidl possessions. And that magnificent territory in
the East, which is now tne scene oi reueusuu ouu
strife, affords a fund, which is to the exchequer of
England, as the waters of the Nile to the agriculture
of Egypt. The Sepoys are up in arms; and they
1^. coout their effective force by tens of thousauds of
welhtrained fighting men. The government at
home has, of course, adopted as immediate action
and as summary measures for the suppression
of the revolt, as circumstatioes will admit.
But India is not to be reached in a day, and
where the insurrection rages is hundreds of miles
from the landing places of the transported troops.?
Tee English army, in India now, is utterly unequal
to the task of crushing out the revolt?aud should
the spirit of disaffection continue to extend, as there
" is reason to believe it will, until the whole Hindoo
people are aroused with the fury of fanatics, from the
H:snma!eu mountains to Cape Coraorin, it may require
more men and mouey than England expended
in the Crimea, to subdue the revolution and maintain
her sway over her invaluable dotniuions in the East,
The British navy is propoitioned in its number of
vessels and guns, to the widely extended and uncon
nected empire and itscommensurate commerce, wbich
it is designed to protect. But no uavyor army can
be adequate to tbc subjugation aud continued control
of a people, whose numbers are equal to all the force
that ouu be sent against them; who have wealth without
measure, wbo are accustomed to exercire in arms,
and who have risen in rebelliou to buret the bonds of
oppression which nature never intended fhetn to bear.
The Sepoys, in India, wbo have been made soldiers
for the subjection of tbeir own country, their own
kinsmen and comrades, bave turned at last upon the
oppressors of tbeir race; and England shudders at
the loose.
The time has come when the British empire fur*
niebes a fruitful topic for speculation. Whether its
tendency to liberty at home is only the result of reluctant
concessions to an enlightened people, while in
tbedistantprovinces.it is grinding still more deeply
in the dust, every element of freedom ; whether
it is increasing or degenerating in influence and
power, and. indeed, whether its continuance even as
an equal among the first nations of the earth is not
threatened, are all questions which sages and states"

of British arms was ominously impaired in the
Crimean war, acd the potency of the British name,
in arte or iu sciences, injdiploraacy, in every thing,
has had little to increase it for some time past.
Ttie destiny of the British empire suggests a problem
in politics difficult of solution, so much so indeed,
that the circuraataooes now surrounding it must be
sources of serious apprehension to its ablest acd astutcst
statesmen. Australia is inclining to the establishment
of a separate and distinct government of its
own. Ireland is ever restless and on the alert for en
opportnne occasion to throtv off the thraldom of
England. And now that India is iu open revolution,
it is truly a question of debate and speculation,
whether the "mistress of the seas," on
whose dominions it is said the sun never sets,
is not rapidiy declining in .some of the essential
elements of influence and strength. Is the
revolt of the Sepoys a result nf an insane
spirit of unprovoked insubordination, or of England's j
usurpation and tyrannic rule over a people who have
calmly determined to aveuge their wrongs ? British
dominion in India, from its first establishment until
now, has uever been regarded by mankind otherwise
than as an evideuce of the unscrupulous cupidity aud
rapacity of a people, whose empire has been extended
by fire and sword, and in contemptuous contravention
of all recoguised law, both human and divine. The
wealth of India has contributed millions to the coders
of Great Britaiu, at the expense of the liberty and
necessities of its dowu-troddeu Hindoos. It is, then,
no matter of astonishment that, at last, the luxurious
repose ot the oppressor should be disturbed by the
shout of war and the clash ot arms.* The poor, per- ,
escuted descendants ot the nabobs, who bent tbeir i
nocks to the English yoke, aud once bowed humbly 1
a obeisance to Warren Hastings, are no longer over- '
awed by Britl-h bayonets. The flame of revolution
is enkindled; and England, we apprehend, will
?od no little difficulty iu subduiug it. That she will
eventually succeed, however, we have little doubt.?
And it is probably better for the cause of civilization 1
and Christianity, for the development aud proper employment
of the resources of that rich region, for the i
commerce of the world, aye, for the interests of In- 1
dia, that even the power ot British oppression should
not be broken, rather than that people should relapse
into barbarism, idolatry and superstition. But this
revolt should teach the British rulers a lesson. It
is one thing to conquer and colon'.ze a country,
ta elevate it iu reiigiou and laws, aud ameliorate it in
morals, and it is quite auother thing to oppress the
weak and extort their riches, as a reward for that
civilisation which makes theiu feel the loss more
sorely still. Unless the iron rule\.f England is molli
tied, the day will come wbeu India will raise a warcry
that cannot be bu?bed by the roar of the British
The disorderly condition of society in the city of

If there be aught of value or utility in what we shall

truth ot our propositions, and in showing the practicability,
expediency, and legality of what they nf

will sanction and enforce measures and a policy demanded

by a true regard for the peitiianen' V-neo: 01 trie nee
negroes themselves, and t.y our duty to posterity.
As a knowledge <>l historical (nets and of our colonial
legislation concerning free negroes, may be considered
germaiu to our subject, and necessary to our
arguuit-ui, we shall pre-ent an epitome of Ibe record
of the past. That a re\isw and examination of this
kind shoufd b? perfect and unbrokrn in all its parts,
is t:<>; practicable, on account of the time and space
it would consume; nor is it desirable or requisite for
the enforcement of our views. We shall exhume aud
oioduce ju?t enough of the thoughts, experiences and
iaws of our ancestors, as will bring this whole question
of our tree uegro population before the eyes of
our people, that by the past they may read the
We need not tel! the p-op)e bow slavery commerced
by the introduction of A frican negroes into the Colony
of Virginia from a Dutch mau of war in 10-1. We
need not tell them how black slavery, after that, rap
idly supplanted while slavery, or the system of white
iuiierited servants. Xo; we shall seek to tell them how
the unwise humanity of our forefathers induced them
to make fne negroes of their negro slaves-, how, when
too iate, seeing their folly aud its fruits, they sought
to mitigate and preveut the evils that sprung from
their intended good.
Our ancestors, as we do, loved their sluves, and,
when tlieir meritorious services were extraordinary
and devoted, rewarded thein with what Anglo Saxons
deem the most valuable gift and highest boon?freedom.
The colonist had not then learned, nor had
history then demonstrated, that the uegro was unfit
ted for freedom, and that so far from being a blessing,
it was, to him aud to society, an evil and a curse.?
Contemplation of the negro's character and instincts,
no matter where he is found and under what circum
stAuces, now proves that the worst and most valueless
reward for his services is manumission, llut our
forefathers, not having our lights and experiences to
guide them, did uot see this, and continued to set
thein free, till coutiuued emancipation and their great
natural increase, rendered their numbers in the colo
ny large enough to be annoying.
Until about the year lGbO, we see no legislation about
free uegroea ou our statute book; nor uutil a few years
after this do attempts appear to have been made, rcgu
latuig and restraining, within certain bounds, tlieir
-mancipation The right to mauumit sueins, for a
I mg time, to have been regarded as any other private
right of property, wiih the exercise or disposition of
which the legislature had no power to interfere. In
1652, the number of free negroes in Virginia was
about 1600. Small, comparatively, as this number
was, it was sutllcieut to creute, in the minds of the
legislators of tliat day, solicitude for the future, and
to arouse a desire to limit and restrain, as far as practicable,
the further increase of a population worthless,
vicious and abandoned iu its character. Accordingly
the House of Burgesses, in 1684 passed the follow
ing law, which we give with the old orthography unaltered
"Forasmuch as great inconveniences may happen
to this country by the Betting 01 negroes auu uiuurutoes
free, by their either entertaining negro slavbsfrom
their master's service, or receiving stolen good.", or
being grown old, briugiug a charge upon the couutrejjj
for prevention thereof, Be i! enacted, That no
negro or mullatto be, after the end of this present session
of Assembly, set free by any person or persons
whatsoever, unless such pereous, their hirers, executors
or administrators, pay for the transportation of
such negro or negroes out of the countrey within six
months after such setting them tree, upon penalty ol
paying of tenn pouuds sterling to tho church wardens
of the parish wl.ere such peraou shall dwell, with
which money, or so much thereof as shall be necessary,
the said church wardens are to cause the said ue
groe or mullatto to be transported out of tho countrey,
and the remainder of said money to imploy to the
use of the poor of the parish."? | Hening's Statutes
at Large lrom 16M to 1710, vol. page *7.
This old law speaks in language not to be misunderstood,
in its recital of the reasons for its passage.
Our minds readily comprehend the evils which urged
its enactment, and we appreciate that provident care
and parental foresight which induced our old-lawgivers
to watch over the interests of posterity. Shall
we he less mindful of those who shall come after us
Shall we, when the evil threatens us and posterity
now more than theu, shrink lrom our responsibilities.'
The statutary enactment above quoted indicates n
change in the minds of the colonists of Virginia towards
free negroes?a change fuify warranted by n
better knowledge of tree negro character. Before
the passage of this act people had emancipated their
slaves subject to no conditions or testrictions, and
they (the tree negroes) had been permitted to remain
in the colony. But the colonial Legislature saw the
necessity of abridging and subjecting to certain qualifications
this private right ot emancipation, wiiicli,
before that lime, had been ubs'dute. Private rights
have ever been jealously guarded by our AngloSaxon
fathers, and mruuld never be invaded or
abridged, save when required by public necessity
and the interests ol society. Of such necessity was
the law to which we have alluded; and its provisions
were acquiesced in; because the grievance end burden
of this population to so< iety was eveu the.; lull;
and any measure likely to diminish the evil or keep i
it stationary was earnestly desired.
Tfie next act we notice is that of 17t.'3 This
act prohibited slaves from being set free, save for
meritorious services, to be aujucged by the Govern*

lind a summary ot aM the laws about emancipation j
and free negroes, in force at that time. Theouiy section
ot that chapter to which we shall allude at pre- '
tut, is, that wliuli enacts that emancipated slaves,
from the passage of that net, shall forfeit their free

poor for the born-tit of the literary fund. Hut a re- I
:;ord of extraordinary good character and acts of extraordinary
merit, might, in the discretion of the
. ounty or corporation courts entitle the slave to remain;
and this provision nullified the act.
The principal f-atures and provisions of the laws
concerning free n<>groe?, embraced in chapter 111 of
Revised Code of ISl'J, are coutiuubd and incorporated
in the Code of 135,1. Hut the latter is not nltog-ther
as satisfactory and etlicient ?.sthe former, for it makes
no provision tor thecnle of the uegro in caso ho violates
the law by retiiaiuing in the State twelve months
after his emancipation* S > it seems that our laws in
this respect, uro not a.-> good under the Code of ISo'i,
as they were under the act of JGS4, passed by our
ancestors one hundred and seventy thfec years a^o.
So defective and ixietlicieut, so carelessly obeyed
and loosely administered were the laws respecting
emancipation and free negroes in our Statu, that the I
people, through their delegates, uttered their voice
upon this most important uud momentum question,
recognizing its grave lentures ami importance iu

We Lave, up to this moment, religiously abstained ,
from speaking on this question, the merits of which ,
we believe did not warrant the considerable abuse
and inconsiderate defence of which it has been equally
mude the victim. Itisagrent misfortune for any (
man, principle or circumstance to be thought necee j ,
eary of defence aguiust abuse, however violent, or ! ^
hot headed abusers. however numerous. In such j ,
cases, what is intended as a defence is only a provocative
of greater abuse; and, so far from convincing
the reason, it but inspires the adjectives of fboae who,
having nothing to argue from, are but too glad fo nave
something to talk al. You may bridge, but you can-; .]
not stay the mad cataract. By patience, you may !
span it; hut in attcmptiug to stay it, you, direct the ) ..
froth aud fury from one iuto a dozen channels. You !
inay walk over it on solid ground, but cannot walk j .
through it on any. So is it a wajfc of energy to re- , ,
ply to frothy and furious abuse. To those upon '
whom abuse is effective, reason is useless; therefore j
it is not only needless to speak when you cannot do so j
with reason, but criminal to imagine that one is up- '
holding or defending a \iuse or principle by giving I
its wilfully obstinate v.lifiers texts for further and
still more obstinate nonsense. .
It will he said that the abuse is harmless as the
defence is needless. Kvenso; and there is no reason
. why virulently violent people on the one hand, and
violently virtuous people on the other, should go oti
abusing and defending, to the amusement of no one,
and without oven a plausible show of instructing. | [J

Solemnly bound t<> the letter as well as tha spirit of I p
tiie law, as the {'resident is, it would have been weii jj
lor those Southern journalist? who bave gone iuto opposition
to have cultivated a knowledge of the law,
before they flung their flippant and pa-sinuate ol j--c- jq
tions in its way. Thev should constantly remeinber
the provisions of tiie Kiin-as-Nebraska bill, as amend-1
ed by Mr. {ladder's proviso, and never forget tlial the 1
South passed it. _ 0|
The President's instructions to Gov. Walker are in ?i
strict compliance with the bill; and it m-e in ridiculous tr
that a few Southern politician- should have succeeded w
to some c-ztenl, in creating antagonism to the Presi w
de::t for what the representatives of Southern men ri
and measures had done. If these excitablo and sfctioual
gentlemeu are inconsistent euough to scout
what tbe Southern statesmen tiud politicians sustain- j,
ed, it is uot to bo wondered at that their eectiounl j]
brethren of the North should hope to rnnke cousider- jj
able anti-Democratic capital out of it. s.
This is no lime to embarrass the Administration.?
AuJ if these lew Southern politicians, either through
a well-meant, if even factious siucwity, or a wilful e,
love of disorganization, have made proselytes to t(,
their untenable phantasies, we beg of both to look
quietly at the facts before tbey irremediably absolve !.(
themselves of ail recognition of the law of the laud, tf,
The South made the hill what it is. y
In January, I8.VI, Mr. Dixon, of Kentucky,gave rt
notice that lie would oiler an amendment to ihe Ne- j,j
hraska bill, the spirit of which was ?o repeal the Mis :i
souri Compromise; that snid Compromise "shall not
be couetf u*-d as to apply to the territory contemplated
by this act. 01 to any o.'her territory of the United \\
Stab s." Next day {January 1?) Mr. Sumner, of 0[
Massachusetts, gave notice of au ameudment, provi- eti
ding that the Missouri Compromise should remain in jn
full force. On Ihe iKM, Senator Douglas announced tk
the determination of tbe Committee on 'i'eirilories to at
amend the Nebraska hill so as to make two Territo- !
ries, (Kansas and Nebraska.) and also declaring the
Missouri Compromise of 1820 inoperative, being *u |jt
perseded l>v the Compromise measures of ISoll. Mr. qq
Chase supported by Mr. Wade,opposed tbe abrogation
of the Missouri Compromise; and, on the 7th of Februnrv,
Mr. Douglas presented his proposed amend- to,
inept to the 1 If h section of the bill, tliu*: c
"Which (the Missouri Compromise) being itienn- ,u
sisteut with the principles of non-intervention by tb
Congre.^ with slavery in the States nnd Territories, (n,
as recognized by the legislation of 18.00, commonly ?u
called the Compromise measures, is hereby declared fic
inoperative and void; it being the true intent and
meaning of this act not to legislate slavery iuto any
Territory or Slate, nor to exclude it therefrom, but to uv
leave Ihe people thereof perfectly free to form and wj
regulate their own domestic institutions in their own
way, .subject ouly to ibo Constitution of the Uuited

vor mid no little animation by Mr. Everett of Masan
nhuaette, Trumau Smith of Connecticut, and General t)r|
Houston, in opposition to. and Mr. Weller of California,
in favor of the bill, op to the 13th of February, :
when Mr. Douglas* amendment was adopted by :ti to
10, tim only Southern Senator in opposition being V,J
Gen. Houston. A useless amendment offered by Mr.
Chase oaused some debate, and for several days lead
ing Senators cave their opinions?Seward, Sumner ,
and Chase presenting petitions against the hill, and '
Messrs. Badger of N. Carolina, loombsot Georgia,
Hunter of Virginia, Butler of South Carolina, Bmwu "
of Mississippi, Dodge of Iowa, and Cass of Michigan, .'e'
speaking in support of it; when, ou the U'd of March,
Mr. Badger moved to amend by inserting the follow- ?r
iog after Douglas amendment quoted above ,
' provided, That nothing herein contained shnll be
construed to revive or put in force any law or regn'a
liou which may hava existed prior to the act of G*h * ,
March, ldJO. either protecting, establishing, prohibit
iug or abolishing slavery." m
This was adopted by 35 ' > C?Adams of Mississippi.
Brown of Mississippi, Jobasou of Arkausoe. Ku>k ;
of Texa*, and Sebastian of Arkansas, voting In the i . '
This proviso declared unrepealed what the pre- 41,1
vious sentence ot the section, (M> into which it was "*
incorporated, declared repealed. It was, in etiect, L-'
eu'li ks Mr. Sumner suggested he wou:d off.-r.
The prohibition of the revival of any law or regu |
latiou existing previous to ld-0, was ius? the same as , bu
endorsing e-id double knotting the Missouri tJoapro- 1 fou
mise, Mr. Millsjn of Virginia, was right when ho j ot
declared against the proviso, in a speech of great j bm
calmness and ability, proving that the proviso did M
exactly what the Missouri restriction did. He nnti
cipated the decision hi the Dred 6coft ff&sa by a clear J
exposition of. and a drin reliance on. the shelter a.f-j art
forded by the Constitution, Since then, the highest /he
. ?ga! tribunal in th-< country has given it? opinion.? ! or,
