Yet the record has Been made and will stared

pended the following to the dreft of hi s

having received ono or more of such bonds,
which shall subsequently 0-introduce or tol

or more of such States. ai'to-day, may free
their slaves, in course of tit* may again
insaute slavery. Ten, twenty or thirty
}vats hence, po'ssibly the verdict of the peo

the institution be restored again. ••Does the
P. canlent of the United States really mean
to errubt a law which will destroy the 'value
of a bond of the United States in the hands
of a third, or a thirtieth party, a pier ter fo
a century hence, because, forsooth, said
bond happened to have beep originally giv•

Have I legally any rigtrto repudiate a

Legally,l think not, nor would any princi4

There is no limit to the schemes of the ;nail
in power!to enslave tlie white .poptilOon by
a debt so huge that figures will hardly con
vey its magnitude. Not only was i this war
debt ono created needlessly, and colargep
by the grossest Iztravagance, 'but while we
hear on all sides, the cry of•' patriots to the
rescue, your country is in danger,' I find
that.the thieving scoundrels in high places
are those who bawl the loudest about • pat •
riotism.' When you and 1, brother work
ingmen, look at the vampires sucking the
brood of the treasury, wherever a vein can
be pricked, when we see the - very Cabinet
itself helping to weaken the resources of a
eLgarty goveruMeut by - direct or indirect

though we can hear the silken cords of fra

Oh; it. is vastly fine, it is transcendently
humane and. philanthropic, for us to talk
and declaim about Slavery, to mount the car
of liberty and ride in triumph over one half
of these powerful, happy States. It is high
and noble conduct after a series of gross at
tacks and aggressive Movements, which have
compelled the South to stand on the defen •
sive, then to hold up our hands in pious hor
ror at "the deep depravity of the South,"
and affect to Wonder men can be so wicked.
Bow lovely, how becoming in us, after pit

secede from the 'Union.
Such seems to be the chosen course of
some of our superfine - patriots and philan
thropists of the North, if wo may judge by
the gusto with which many journals fling all

at the ".slaveocracy" of the South. .!1-t ma
