alone in pointing out some of the
errors, or rather the abuses of the
present system of introducing
laborers into the State. There
arc bad and mercenary men every

one planter who has violated his
contruct with his hands, it should
not be considered, as'it is not in
tended, as an ttasault upon the
houcsty of the whole class. . And
if we should sav that certain
agents engaged in furnishing la
borers to planters, consult their
pecuniary interest more thnn the
good of the State, it does not nec
essarily follow that we have mado
an indiscriminate assault upon all
persons engaged in tho business,
