PHILADELPHIA, June 5, 184 9.
MV DEAR SIR :—Under the impression
that its publication at this time will pro
mote your views, be gratifying to the peo
Fie of Kentucky, and be of general utility,
am induced to take the liberty to enclose
you a copy of a letter from Mr. Jefferson j
to me on the subject of slavery.
I avail myself of the occasion to tender ;
my respectful compliments to Mr. Clay, ;
and to renew to you assurances of my high j
respect and sincere regard.
To Hon. Henry Clay, Lexington, Ky.
MoerriCELto, August 25th, 1814.
DEAR SIK :—Your favor of July 31st
was duly received and was read with pecu
liar pleasure. The sentiments breathed j
through the whole do honor to both the
head and heart of the writer. Mine on the j
subject of the slaver)* of negroes have long
since been in possession of the public, and
Line has only served to give them stronger i
. e o ;
The love of justice and the love ofcoun- j
try plead equally the cause of these people, ;
and it is a moral reproach to us that they
should have pleaded it so long in vain, and j
should have produced not a single effort—
nay I fear, not much serious willingness ;
-—to relieve them and ourselves from our '
present condition of moral and political ,
repiobation. From those of tiio former
generation who were in the fulness of age
when 1 came into public life, which was ,
while our controversy with England was
on paper only, 1 saw nothing was to be
hoped. Nursed and educated in tha daily
habit of seeing the degraded condition, both
bodily and mentally, of those unfortunate
beings, not reflecting that that degradation !
was very much the work of themselves
and their fathers, few minds had yet doubt
ed but that they weie as legitimate sub
jects of property as their horses or cattle, j
The quiet and monotonous courso of
colonial life had been disturbed by no
alarm and little reflection on the value of
liberty ; and, when alarm was taken at an
enterprise of their own, it wae not easy to
carry out the whole length of the princi
ples which they invoked for themselves.—
In the first or second session of the Legis
"tatnre after I was a member, I drew to ;
this subject the attention of Colonel Bland,
one of the oldest, ablest, and most respected
members, and he undertook to move for ,
certain moderate extensions of the protec- |
lion of the laws to these people. I second- j
ed his motion, and, as a younger member
was spared more in the debate ;but he was
denounced as an enemy to his country, and
was treated with the greatest indecorum, i
From an early stage of our Revolution
other and more distant duties were assign
ed me, so that from that time till my re
turn from Europe in 1789, nnd I mav ssy, '
till I returned to reside at home in 1309, I
hid little opportunity of knowing the pro
gress of public sentiment here on this sub
ject. 1 had always hoped that the young
er generation, receiving their early impres- j
sions after the flame of liberty had been !
kiadled in every breast, and had become
ea it were the vital spirit of every Ameri- i
can, that the generous temperament of
youth, analogous to the motion of their
blood, and above the suggestions of ava- !
rice, would have sympathised with oppres
* eion wherever found, and proved their love
of liberty beyond their own share of it.
But rny intercourse with them since mv
return has not been sufficient to ascertain
that they had made towards this point the
progress 1 had hoped. Your solitary but
welcome voice is the first® which has
brought this sound to ray ear, and 1 have ,
considered the silence which prevails on ,
this subject as indicating an apathy unfa- j
vorable to our hopes. Yet the hour of
emancipation is advancing in the march of
time. It will come ; and, whether brought
on by the generous energy of our own
minds or by the bloody process of St. Do
mingo, excited and conducted by the power
of our present enemy, if once stationed >
permanently within our country, offering
.isvlum and arms to the oppressed, is a
leaf of our history not yet turned over.
As to the method by which this difficult
work is to be effected, if permitted to lie
done by ourselves, 1 have seen no proposi
tion so expedient on the whole, as that of
emancipation ot those born after a given
day, and of tlieir education and expatriation '•
at a proper age. This would give time
lor a gradual extinction of that species of
labor, and substitution of another, and les- i
sen the severity of the shock, which an
operation so fundamental cannot fail to
produce. The idea of emancipating the
whole at once, the old as well 33 the young,
and retaining them here, is of those only
who have not the guide of either know
ledge or experience on this subject.
For men, probably of any color, but of
this color we kaow, brought up from their
lutancy without necessity for thought or
forecast, are by iheir habits, rendered us
incapable as ch,,dren of taking care of
themselves, and are extinguished prompt
ly wherever industry is necessary for rais
ing the young. In the meantime they arc
[icsts in society by their idleness, and the
depredations to which this leads them
1 hen amalgamation with the other color
produces a degradation to which 110 lover
of his country, no lover ,f excellence in the
human character, can innocently consent.
1 am sensible of the partialities with
which you looked toward me as the person
who should undertake this salutary and ar
duous work ; hut this, mv dear sir, is like
bidding old Priam to buckle on the armor
of Hector, ' tremi-nlibus ato humeri t et in-
No. i have over- |
lived the generation with which mutual
labors and perils begat mutual confidence
and influence. This enterprise is for the
young.; for those who can follow it up, and
i bear 11 through to its consummation. It
j shall have nil my prayers, and these are the
only weapons of an old man. But, in the
meantime are you right in abandoning this
property and your country with it ? 1
think not. My opinion has ever been that,
until more can be done for them, we should
endeavor with those whom fortune has
thrown on our hands to feed and clothe
lueni well, proT'ct them from ill usage, re
quire such reasonable labor only as is per
! formed voluntarily by freemen, and be led
J by no repugnances to abdicate them and
: our duties to them. The law does not
permit us to turn them loose, if that were
for their good, and to commum them for
! other property is to commit them to those
1 whose usage to them we cannot control.
I hope, then, my dear sir, you will re
j concile yourself to your country and its
unfortunate condition ; that you will not
lessen its stock of disposition by withdraw*
ing your portion from the mass. That on
the contiary, you will conte forward in the
' public councils, become the missionary of
this doctrine truly christian, insinuate and
! inculcate it softly but steadily through the
medium of writing and conversation ; ns
-1 sociato others in your labors, and when
the phalanx i 9 formed, bring on and press
! the proposition perseveringly until its ao
! complishraent. It is an encouraging ob
servation that no good measure was ever
; proposed which, if daily pursued, failed to
prevail ir. the end.
We have proof of this in the history of
the endeavots in the Ornish Parliament to
suppress that very trade which brought
1 this evil upon us. And you will be sup
ported by the religious precept —'Be not
weary in well doing.' That your success
. tnav be as speedy and complete as it will
be honorable and immortal consolation to
yourself. I shall as fervently and sincerely
pray as I assure you of my great friendship

Wheat will do well to call and show a sample

than any other person in the place, the mill
being situated on the creek, where flour can

besides, the flour is in better order, as the bar

If wheat brings a better price than it will af

a great deal of time and labor in hoisting by

rilHlrf Machine operates equally well on
A a!! kinds of land, end is not injured by
coming in contact with rocks, roots, &c. It
! will plant point rows, and all irregular shaped
! fields, without sowing any part twice over.
With a saving ot from 10 to 15 per cent, in
labor, it will, with ease tor two horse?, plant
J from 10 to 12 acres per day of wheat, oats,
1 barley, and other small grains; and with one
man and horse, it will readily plant from 15 to
20 acres per day ot Indian corn, beans, j.eas,
It will save from 2 to 3 pecks ot seed per
j acre, and yield from 15 to 20 per cent, more
j than the broad cast seeding, by distributing
! the grain uniformly at any desired depth, and
leaving a ridge of earth between the row 9.
; The roots of the young plant are protected
during the winter by the action of the frost
J and rain mouldering "the earth upon them, ir>
j stead of being thrown cut and exposed as in
1 broad cast On this account the stalk is
j stronger and less subject to mildew, and is not
so liable to injury by the fiy.
The farmer is frequently prevented by rain
from harrowing in hie grain alter it is 80wn,
; which harrowiner is needless in seeding with
, this machine as it completes the urork at once.

Thompson 4" Reed: Esteemed Friends—
I have had the Pennock Drill in use for two
seasons, and from the vast difference in the
wheat crop over the broad cast, it is my decid
ed opinion that every farmer should have one
of them, as he will be a gainer of at least one
third on each acre of his crop.

Mr. Ahner Thompson: Dear Sir—The
, j Pennock Drill I got from you last summer,
! worked to my entire satisfaction, in rough and
: J smooth ground. Each tube and hopper" work
> ; ing separate and independent or each other, is
a decided advantage, by escaping rocks, roots,
sowing point rows, &c., and from the appear
ance of my crop at this time, there will be a
better yield to the acre than on what I sowed
broad-cast, besides a saving of one bait bushei
of seed to the acre. I believe it is one of the
most profitable agricultural implements in use
' by the farming community.
JAMES BE ATT Y, Jr.
We cordially concur in the above.

Mr. ABNER THOMPSON : Dear Sir —The

; from the present appearance of my c 1

; crop to pay the price of the Drill, at anv rate.
