MONDAY MOsIWPtO JAN.* I*o.
lamalra Again.
In his lecture delivered before the Cooper
Institute oa tbe „tb ln»t., Mr. Fuamk Blaiu
endeavored to prove tbat tbe Btitteh West In
dia Islands .exported throe or four times aa
much, ta value, now, as they bad done previ
ously to tbe abolition of slavery ia that quar
ter. Ia ourcorameute upon that atetoment,
weeadenvored to prove, from facts published
to TnoLLorrs tour, that Ihe escese must have
come from Barbadoes, or other islands in
which there was no room for the negro to
sfßßm and aot, iaaay degree whatever, from
Jamaica, where üßOceopled land is abundant.
Two day* after the lecture in question waa de
llvsrod, tho New York Times, n Black Kepub*
lienn sheet of a vary malignant type; publish
ed v tetter from one of its correspondent* so
jonralugat kiugsion, in which this conjee ture
of ours was fully sustained. He tells the
Times that la the year ifttt, Jamaica exported
150,001 hogsheads of sugar, aud in 1359, 36,010
hoasheada. From lsoi to far. ber annual ax-
pormtion averaged i;ci,uyn hogsheads. From
that time It began to decline, and during the
next seven years averaged but I lo.boo. Bubee
yuently it averaged about 9u,WH, until the year
Ist., the period of emanciiiaiiou. The corres
pondent endeavors to show that emancipation
had nothing to do witb the tailingofl' of exper
tations, inasmuch as it had already begun
before that measure had been adopted.—
With that inference we have, at present, noth
ing to do. What we are desirous to show it-,
that where there has been an increase in the
production,it ie tote credited to theaccouutof
those islands in wbicb the negro is compelled
to work by hunger—a master more inexorable
than any other that it ie possible to place over
human beings—and tbat he will work from no
other motive, unles*. be be a slave. This wri
ter himself says : "Covering an area of four
millions of acres, Jamaica bas a population of
378,000, black, white and mulatto. This makes
about eteveu acres to each person. In the
flourishing island ot Barbadoes the proportion
is nearly one and a half person* to each acre.
If Jamaica were as thickly settled a* Barba
does, it would contain over five millions of
souls, nnd would export a million of hogs
heads. Till its present population has doubled
aad trebled, no material improvement can be
looked for. But where is tbe money—where
are the vigor and the energy necessary to ob
tain this popnlatiou ? Wbo.se fault is it that
these are wanting, and that Jamaica with far
greater advantages than Trinidad orduiana,
bus foiled to follow the footsteps of their suc
cess I" ,
Barbadoes, which all ihe abolitionists point
to tut a specimen of what abolition can do, is
the most populous spot upon the face of tbe
globs, with theexcejition of Malta. It bas au
area of IW»,whj acre-, and a population of about
150,000 souls. As A4O acres make a square mile,
it bas an area of Iti". square miles, and npon
this area a population of mm to the square
mile. The population of Ireland is about KO
to the square mile, that of England about •.T'.-:
tbat of France, including Corsica, about ,'M:
tbat of Cbinaabout :KHi; that of Belgium about
M 0; that of Bengal about five hundred. Now,
bere is a country four times as populous ns
Intend, three times as populous a* Eng
land, France, Belgium and China, and iwice
aa populous us Bengal, and these are the most
densely populated countries on the globe.—
Now, in every part of the world, a population
excessively dense is considered the greatest ol
all possible curses. It is the sure parent ot
innumerable evils. Starvation, disease, taxes,
poor rates and distress, in every imaginable
shape, are iv inevitable Consequences. The
whole world Is aware of the efforts Eu
rope has been making for thirty years to
rid herself of this crushing evil. But
In one quarter of the globe it is admitted
that this evil is small iv comparison with ano
ther which it would cure. The abolitionists
themselves confess that a redundancy of popu
lation, three times as great as that which ex
ists in the most populous countries of Eu
rope, would be a blessing in Jamaica, because
thereby alone could the full capacity of the
island be developed. This is to say, in so
many words, nothing but the immineut dan
ger of starvation will make the emancipated
negro work—nothing but the most terrihle
evil known to the old world can corn ct the
atill more terrible evil brought by the aboli
tionists upon the most fertile portion of tin
new. A plenty of fresh land, and ample room
for the exercise of industry and skill, are the
greatest blessings a free country can offer to
freemen. These blessings the perverse inge
nuity of abolitionism converts into a enrsni
whenever it has an opportunity. Let this
wmrr tell what it has done for Jamaica:
*™s briefly as possible—for the theme is thread
bare—l must endravur to tire > our reader* an ap
proximate idea of the decline..f Janitica. or point
out the political and social abuse* and ntuiiiiaiie*.
fur u-li.ch, it seems to me, a reinedi must Im fount!
lie lore the island can be resrored to its former
prosperity. Ido not think it can be disputed—if
history and statistic*aie to be believed—that since
the abolition of the slave trade, fifty-two years
ago, Jamaica has never for a iiioincrt paused in
her downward career. Ido not think it can be dis
puted—if actual observation can lie relied on—tint
she has Dot, even >et. reached tlm inwest point of
possible, depression. Lower mill she. can sink—
lower still she must sink—if her people are not im
bued with a more pregnant patriotism—if the gov
erning claraes are not sriuiiii-itcd to more energet
io action, and are not guided b> more unselfish ac
tion."
The city of Kingston was once a magnificent
city, situated on a magnificent harbor, and
containing a population of -lO.oou inhabitants.
IU commercial prosperity was unrivalled, at
least in the British West Indies. See whnt it
te now:
"If the city ef Kington 1* taken as an iliustra
tion of the prosperity of Jamaica, the visitor will
arrive at more deplorable conclusions than those
pointed out by commercial statistics. It teems
lite a romance to read to-day, in the capital of Ja
maica, the account of that capital's former splen
dor. Its 'magnificent churches'—vow time-worn
and decayed—are scarcely auperior to the stables
of some Fifth Avenue magnate. There is not a
bouse in the city in decent repair—not one thai
looks as though it could stand a respectable hieeze
not a wharf in good order—not a street that n.in
exhibit a square inch of paveinest—no sidewalks—
no draiaass— scanty water—no light. The same
picture ot neglect and apathy greets one every
where, la the business part of the town >. ou arc
oppressed v. ilb its inactivity. Clerk* uwn nvsr
tbesouatsra, or hail with nieedy looks the solitary
atraager wbo comes in to purchase. If a nun
resident lie i» made to pa> for the dullntss of the
Sarket. snd leave* a hotel, a store, or a livery sta-«
a. tolerably well deeced. Prices tbat in N.-w
York would be deemed exorbitant, must lie paid
fur tbe common necessaries of life. The Kincsto
nians remind me much of the .'..than,a wreckers.
Having little or nothinc themgelvp*. they look
upoaaateamer-load of Caiitbrnia passengers cast
away in their harbor fur a da* or a ninlit. as very
K.vptians, whom it as not only their privilege, but
tseir dot*, to despoil.

which occurred recently in Rockingham coun
ty, N.C.:
A man by the" name of Williams, a Justice
of t'.ie Peaoeanda memberof tho Special Court
ol Bochiagbaaa, had seduced a young lady,
Wboea name our informant had lorgotten, un
der promise of marriage. In order to avoid
the fulfillment of the ptomirabe,determ—ed,it
is supposed, to murder her. The girl was
missing, ami no inquiry led to any intelU
geaco concerning bar, until recently bar comb
was found in Haw river, near Williams',
which fact, coupled with other circumstances,
created the suspicion that Williams had made
wav with her. The river was d tagged, but
the" body was not found. Subsequently, a
plant-bed, which Williams had burned for the
purpose of ..-owing lohapm seeds, waa search
ed, and among the ashes was found tha riaga
a.id necklace clasp that were known to have
belonged to the girl, partially melted, and also
some aabstaace pronounced to be part of a
human body. Upou these discoveries Wil
liams was arre»ieti, anil is now in jail.
CoMstonona SiocKroi on mi Union.—ln
reply to inquiries from prominent citizens of
Princeton, Com. Stockton has given his views
rs to 'he dangers which threaten the Republic
His iilea of a Union mooting is tbat it ought
to ba "one which should be so constituted as
to speak substantial words oi fraternity and
encouragement to tbe South,aad which shouM
say that the Fugitive Slave Lav/ is right, ami
ihould be executed; which ■■ should say that
Southern men may lawfully lake their slaves
into die Territories, and that the decisions of
the Supreme Court must and .-.hail be coiisiii
ered the supreme law of the tend." Jfa di
vision of the Union is to occur, the Commo
dore would have thelines of separation drawn
along: the Hudson and the Lakes, rather than
the Potomac and the (lino, lie lias no doubt
that in such an event the North westers States
would unite with New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
and the South. He. says: "Iwill stand by
them, because they are right; I stand by th.'iv,
because they have the Constitution ana "the law
ou fueir side.' 1
Wm. E. Mann, Sheriff of Pasquotank
county. Iff.C,is in this city, on bis way to
Richmond to present a memorial to the Legis
lature of Virginia, asking for an amendment
of our Inspection Law to prevent the escape
of fugitive slaves, so as to place North Caro
lina vessels on the same rooting under that
law as those of Virginia. The memorial is
endorsed by many of our citizens, and what
it asks for being perfectly reasonable and just,
we cannot doubt thai it will be favorably en
tertained by the Legislature. The only ques
tion is, whether the ends of the law would not
be better served by subjecting all vessels to
search- and yet, again, it seems hard that
Southern vessels should be made to pay for
Northern delinquencies. One thing,however,
is certain : the principle of the t-tx for search
ing vessels from North Carolina is turning off
no small amount of trade from Virginia.—
