A copy of the Digest of the Negro Law, repared by the HO. i. B. O'Neall, I erewith submit, with the suggestion that t be printed for public use, unaccompa ied by the comments of its author. It is document of great value, and worthy of hie reputation of the distinguished jurist to rhose labors South Carolina is indebted ar it. The laws affecting the colored opulation. bond and free, require revision. Vhother the whole subject should be re erred to a commission, for examination nd a report at the next session, is a ques ion well entitled to consideration by the .egislature. I recommend that the law concerning laves hiring out their own time be made o stringent, as promptly to crush an evil f great and increasing magnintude; also, hat such a modification of the act in refe. tnce to the trading and trafficking with laves take place, as to substitute, for the acond offence, corporal punishment for he pecuniary fine now inflicted on the arty convicted of selling spiritous liquors that class of our population. or trading rith them in the articles of corn, rice and atton. Luxemberg Claim. I lay before you a communication from . DeChoiseul, consul of France, in rela. on to a debt alleged to be due the Legi uaries of Luxemberg by South Carolina. By the act of 1807, "the remainder" of he amount owing by this State was re trred fur settlement to the Attorney Gene %I, who was directed to pay "to such per Dn as shall, at the time of payment, be the wful and regular administrator of the es ite of the Prince of Luxemberg. according > the laws of this State." Practically, Als statutory requirement put it beyond to power of individuals to sabstantiate oir claims. In 1809, the Legislature re ealed that portion of the act which au torited -' the payment of the balance of te liquidated debt;" and directed that it hould remain in the public treasury.

WAstorotr, Nov. 10, 1I849. Sir: Being casually informed of your recent arrival in this city, I seize the op portunityy of inviting your attention to a subject of high inmportance to the whole country. and of especial concerli to the Southert States of the Confederacy-one of whicll you have the honor to represent in the councils of the nation. The session of Congress is almost at hand, and indi cations Jre abroad, and every moment multiplying, which seem to render it quite probahle_thc the Wilntot proviso and the abolitiirof sladery it the District of Co. lumbia will be again brought forward eith er in the ?enate or House of Representa tives, and supported by the sealous and unscrupulous advocates of these two mis chievous measures with increased violence and con!irmed pertinacity. It is most evi dent to tue that the Union itself will be put in serioss jeopardy by the movements thus menaced, as I hold it to be certain that no State of the South will patiently acquiesce in either of the aggressions alluded to. I regret to perceive that there is an erro neous impression widely prevalent in the i North. that the South is neither in earnest nor uuitil in any schenie of opposition and resistmnee to the insulting encroachments now so,fercely threatened. If this impres sion is permitted to remain uncorrected un til eithc' of the mediated outrages referred to shall have been perpetrated, it is to be feared that it will he too late to save the Republic from consequences too dreadful to be.touitemplated without a feeling of patrioticsolicitude and alarm; whereas, it is mg ;il6tn conviction that, if the sober thinkig mqn of the free States coild once ascertain the danger that demagogues and fanatical agitators are fast bringing upon them and their unof'ending brethren or the Sodth, by the advocacy or schemes of id justice add oppression which cannot possi bly result in practical benefit to any sei. lion or State of the Confederacy, they would rise up, without further delay, and to the agents of sedition, who hove here tofore spotted with their eredtility and abu sed their conidete, that the period has di lettgth atrived when they will not longet permit them. in their name, to trample the sacred provisions of the constitution undei foot. and embroil the legisldtive cauocils of the nation in tnseemlr and wicked con trobersy. Taking this vie* of the thatter, and knowing that you have had an opportutil ty of conferiing freely during the past sum mer with your fellow cititens of North Carolina, I Venture to lay before you the resolutions recently adopted by the South ern Convention Of the State of Mississip pi, and call upon you to say whether or not you approve them, and whether they are, in your opinion, approved in the State of North Carolina atld the South generally. Being it prominent niember of the Whig party, you will doubtless feel authorized to speak, in language to explicit to he misun derstood as to the probable aciion of )our politicd) tssociates in the South, should the prsent sectional contest bo pushe~d to ex treitdt ie. In the Convention of Miississip pi, yout wsill observe. bdth the t*.'f great po. litical parttes of the couttry were equially represeted: the resolutions, unanimouslyj adopted by that body, m.ay be therefore re garded as declatative of the views and feel igs df the wtrle Stare. Ilowever it may possibly he elsewhere, I can assute you most contfidently that the people of Missis sippi look upon thte slavery question, in its eisting aspects, as above party. I am well satisfied that this is the condition ol things generally in thte South; and I hope that you will feel justified in expressiog a cntcrrlent opimont. I hatd the honor of addressing a few dayt since inqniries similar to thoso nowpr pountded to you, to your distinguished cot league, the lIon. \Villie P.

HI. S. Po-. [Ion. Thos. 1n. Cliogmran. RPwi of Ma. CaltrdesAN TO Ma. FooTE WVasitno-roN, Nov. 13, 18-19. Dear Sir:--Y,urs of the 10th instan lhas been rece-ivedi, itt which you ask m: own views, as well as my opinion, us t1 wat will be the course oif the South ii Qither tof thme conmingenciesm referred to 'of the States, and the cnnsidcration tuo personally, merit alike a prompt reply. ti, Having on former occasions given my bI views in detail with reference to the whole at subject, it is not necessary for me to do so Is at this time. ( proceed, therefore, to give si you simply the general results of my re- bl flectiOns. th The Federal government, because it 1 is the government of the United States, is s the trustee and agent for all the States and jn their citizens. Every power, therefore, ri which it can rightfully exercise it rhust of 5 necessity exercise for the benefit of all the s; parties to it. The territory of the United , States being the common property, the he government is bound to administer it as th far as practicable for the benefit of all the n States as well as their cititens. A difl"e' th rence, however, exists among them in -rela; th tion to the institution of slavery. When * the constitution was formed, twelve of the si, thirteen States were. alaveholding. That ta instrument, though it has tlaises ekpress- a' ly inserted fOr the protection of thb rights ti and interests of slaieholders, contains no S, provision for the abolition of slavery any where. If the governttentt therefore, cab sn properly exercise such a power in any In- ,i stance, it must be because its duties as a at general agent, acting so as to meet the in- th terest and views of its principals, reqtire m it. But fifteen of the thirty States of the c Union still maintain the institution of sla- tit very. It is obvious, therefore. thar the government could not eonsistenitly with its powers as a general agent, exclude the slaveholders as a class from all participa tion in the enjoyment of the territory of the United States. It is. on the contra. le ry, under solemn obligations to respect the . rights of all. It has alwdys heretofore, aes t I understand its action, shown a sense of P' this obligation.-When the much talked of de ordinance was adopted, by which the ter- r ritory north of the Ohio river was made Ic free, all that portion of country south of th the river to the Gulf of Mexico was left to Pt be occupied by slavoholders.=When sla- be very was abolished in ihe part of the Lou- at isiana territory, the southern portion, re garded as the most suitable for slavehold- . ere, was left to he so occupied. On the i annexation of Texas, when a provision e' against slavery north of 36 deg. 30 min. f was incorporated, much the larger and i more valuable portion was left still for the w use of elaveholders. Bttt it is now proposed to adopt the poli- C cy of excluding slavelolders, as such, from re all the territory of the United States. This In ttould be an entire revolution in the action ul of the Government-a revolution which it could not occur without a total violation 13 of the spirit and essence of the constitu- e tion. Since those citizens who do own d those slaves are permitted to occupy every d part of the territory of the Union, it has ct been doubted by many whether the govern. d meat cab rightfully exclude slaveholders e 'rom any portion of the common property. f But, even if there should be a power to It divide the public terrh->ry for convenience P between the two classes, it is perfectly clear that there can be no right to exclude " ont class entirely, I have heretofore said a that I should regard such an exelusion as P being as great a violation of the constitution n at the Goventment could possibly commit But even if this action should be viewed a simply as an enormous abdse of power, it would be not thb less objectionable. The government hs unlimited powers in re lation to the establishrment of post offices G throughout the Union. If, however, it tr wetr to *ithdraw all the post offices front : the slaveholding States on the ground that I the citizens of those States were not worthy I of the countenance and aid of the govern medt. we should have as much reason to 9 complain of such action as if it involved a r clear infraction of the letter of the constitu- h mion. In a word, if the governmetnt shottld I adopt the policy of Jxcludintg slaveholders as such, from all the territory of the Ut ed States, it would in substatnce and of feet rease 10 be the Governent of the Uni ed States. While the form of the constitut tion might remain the same, its character would be essentially chamngod. Ought the Southern States to acquiesce it this gream orgianic change in our poilitt cal system ? Ought they remain mein hers of an association wvhich had, in utter disregard or plain constitutiotual guaran4 ties, degraded them from their positiont of equali'y?i As history turnishes nto record of ay people who htave propered after they had forfeited their self-respect, by I subtin g to be degraded to a state of poli- I ical vassalage, I hold it to be the duty of I the Southemrn States to resist this chan::e. That resistetice, to be efclcuad, should be in commtentsuirate w:ith the viilenice of the at- I tack. Trhis they owe to die cause of con stitutiotmal liberay, to justice anid to their ownm honor. WVith referetnce to the abolition of sla very in ite District of Columbiai, I will sitply saty that. waiving all controversy in relatiou to constittutnal right, and ob lgaion to the adjoining St attcs, if such an event were to occur at this time, it would not taske place itt obedience to th:e wishes of the citizens of the District, but would be brought about at te instance of the in-. habitants of the States. But these per sons have no right te control the local af fairs of this District. Should Congress, therefore, thus act at their. instigation, it would be gtuilty of.an act of tyranny so iin suIting and so gross as to justify a with drawal of confi.dence frotun auch a Govern You. ask, in t-he second- plare, what I believe likely to be the course of the South }should suCh a Contingoncy occur? '1There was but tone of the States htavitng ainy con hich 1 had any dnt:bts. From her frbh )r position. and the powerful irfluences ought to hear ont her, I had soie lbtirs to what mighite the action of Kentucky. ut I have been gratified beyond exptes on by the gallant stand which that no e State has recently taken.

The union of both parties in Mis isipi is a type or what will occut else here. The Southern States ougth to ive but one feeling oi this questiDn; as ey cab have but one destiny.
