An Eflay on Slavery,
Defrgned to exhibit in a new point ot view
its effe&s on moralsindujlry, and the peace of
Jociety. Some tatts and calculations are offered
to prove the labor a\ freemen to be much more
produflixre than that ot Jlqves ; that countrifs are
rich, powerful and happy, in proportion as the
laboring people enjoy the fruits of their own
labor; and frencc the nrceflary conclusion, that
slavery »s impolitic as well as unjujl.

\_Mr. IV. Smith's Speech Concluded.
It had been proposed that in lieu of these
stamp duties, the duties of impost should be
increased on all articles which now pay a iju
ty of seven and a halt per cent ad valorunr,
to ten per cent, befiedes the increased rates of
duties pn the enumerated articles. It was
not a little surprizing, he obfei ved, that gen
tlemen who a few days a go preditkd an ap
proaching war, whereby our existing reve
nue ariiing from import would be almolt an
nihilated, should now not only count Upon
the continuance of that revenue, but should
expect further aid from that source, or that
those who are urging a suspension of com
mercial intercourse should rely upon com
merce altogether for revenue. He was de
cidedly of opinion, that commerce wis al
ready luflicienily burthened, and that it
j would be as unjust as impolitic to add to
• the burden. We ought not to rely upon
the proposed duties on the enumerated ar
ticles, which with the proposed incr afeof
tonnage conffituted an item of neaf
400,000 dollars.—Tliis lie considered,
under present circumstances, a very pre*
carious resource. With refpedi to the
other new sources of revenue, being un
tried, they were uncertain ; the house
poffefled 110 data by which any accurate
ellimate could be made of their product;
under all these circumllances, while on
the one hand, the exiding revenues wouid
fall short of those of former years, and
the new revenues were either pretarious
or uncertain as to their amount, and on
the other hand ouf expences were necefia
rily much increased, and were likely to be'
Itill further increased, he was confident
the house would be fenllble of the propri
etv ncjat'vins'the motion. _ ' :
would be some difficulty in can ymg the
tax into execution ; but these difficulties
were inseparable from the very nature of
taxation, It required littie ingenuity to
discover them, and to apply to them all
the common place topics which were re
sorted to on these occasions. But he
thought that if the gentlemen would em
ploy their ingenuity and inventive facul
ties in discovering such revenues as would
enable the government to face the pre
sent exigencies, they would render mort'
service to the country, than by embarras
sing with objections, which were equally
applicable to almost every species of irn
OBSERVER No. XVlt.
Mr. Fen no,
On Friday evening, Mr. Bates's night,
the New-Theatre was filled with an unu
sual number—a more brilliant and genteef
audience has never attended. The Du
enna was well performed—the parts have
never been better call, and the several
performers, never did themselves more
juflice,in pretenlipns to nncommort merit.
Mr. Bates has, perhaps, succeeded betted
than any other Acior in the United
States, in pleasing all descriptions of peo
ple—may he continue to experience their
favors, in such phudits, as his benefit af
Mr. Morris's benefit was on Monday
evening ; and that truly d,eferving veteran,
was notified in a very h6nofable, as well
as beneficial manner—a good hotife, in
point of numbers and refpe&ability, was
never more gratified, by his performance,
than by that in the character of Don Ma
nual. This A£tor, has uniformly filled
his parts with great iuftnefs, but he truly
filled the character Don Manuel with pro
digious strength and elegance. Cibber,
who wrote the play, could not have pof
feficd a thought, which Mr. Morris did
not give its full exercise. His perform
