inlcili red it 11 the fiee labor of ths
North. In addition to I hi il wna also
argued that it retarded tho industry
and development of tbo country, bo
sides being a sin in tbo sight of (iod.
Without arguing any of the side bsnea
to which the question gave rise, let US
see how lur the Coolie trade bears ro-
s hlatiee to il.ai.d how inconsirtM't
those men ure who argm d against no.
gro slavery us an interlereneo with
tree labor, and yet advocnto tho sys.
tcin of Chinese slavery which dots tho
Tho negro was a slavo for life. All
be obtained, as remuneration for .bis
labor, was victuals, clothes, nnd the
necessary cure und attention in case
of sickness. Ilis victuals wo place
eijual to ?:'.Ml per week or SlUO .ret1
year. Ilis clothes was crptul to $10
per week or till per yea, while all'
other mutters of expense, including
medical attendance, wo pluco at (iyj
more. These sums in the aggregate
amount to?;j4. The Coolie is brought
to this eounlry und hired out by con-
tractors at the raleof 8(1.(1(1 per month
aud found in boarding. This makes
t'l per year. Wo place his boarding
ul the same rate we do the negro slave,
say Si.oU per week or S:.0 per year.
Ilis Wages, (hen, would aggregate1
or $;JJ less than thul of the negro,
and consequently to I he extent of that
dillereine more inlerferonec with the
free labor of (ho country. Hut it will
be said that (he Coolio labor is free
labor Wo say that il is not. They
arc just us much slaves during the
contract which their masters buvo
mude as were the negroes Tbo only
did'ereiice i-, one is a slave lor life and
the oiher for a term of years. Hut
their interference with American labor
is more deleterious to il than was no
gro slavery, as the calculation we bavoi
mudu clearly proves.
One of the arguments used by tho
slaveholder in support ol sluvery was,
Hint tho system brought tho negroes
from Allien into a Christian country,
and therelore it was giving theso be
nighted creatures a knowledge of God
und lo that extent improving their
condition. Tho argument usod by the
advocates of C'xilie labor is precisely
tho same, nnd does seem strange thai
strenuous abolitionists should be found
on tho same side wilh slaveholder
und using the sumo argument.
Another argument used by tho
slaveholder was, that unless sluvery
was tolerated the cotton, rice and to
bacco fields would beeoino waste land,
as frco labor was not calculated to
tiiuke either of these articles remuner
ative in production. It so happens)
tbut precisely tho aatno argument irf
used by the capitalists of tho .North
who advocate Coolio labor. They
say, we are unable to mako our bnst
ih" productive unless we obtain vhcan
' labor, and ns American labor is too
j deat we must go to China and import
Coolies. So that tho only difference1
1 between them and the slaveholders in
fact is, that tho ono class went to Af-
rica for labor and tho other now go to'
Ulher rtrganients equally as strong
were used in support of negro slavery
which apply w ilh ns much forco Id
the introduction of Coolies under thrf
contract system, but il is unnecessary
to refer to them Suflieo it to say
that if such labor is tolerated in the
United Slates, we may look for an erf
lire und complete chungo in our labor
system which will be anything olso
thnn beneficial lo American mechanics'
uud laboring men of every character.
