A little more than thirty years ago human
slavery was as sinful and as foolish as it is
now, yet it troubled the mental peace only of a
few Quakers and of Mr, Garrison. Since that
time, with infinite difficulty, with no end of
speeches and newspaper writing, it has igen
hammered into the hardest heads that slavery
is a wicked blunder. Now the Northern
man who defends it is justly regarded as a
phenomenon. But who can compute the amount
of talking, wise and foolish, the meetings,
publications, poems, and what not, which it has
cost to bring society into this reasonable frame .
of mind? Man is a noble animal. buthe learns
The above is from the New York Tribune, and
has elicited from the Hartford (Conn.) Times
the following comments :
The idea that slavery, as it exists at the
South, is foolish and wicked, has been "ham
mered" into the heads of many. It required
much hammering, for facts were against the
theory that the Africans do not absolutely need
to be placed in subordination to the whites,
for the benefit of both races. That slavery at
the South might have been ameliorated, no one
will deny, The slaves might have been learned
to read—the marital right among them secured,-
the separation of children from parents, and
wife from husband, forbidden. All this might
have been accomplished, probably, had not the
Garrisoniane attempted to place the blacks
upon a political and social equality with the
whites, a task so sternly opposed by nature
as to make it hopeless. The African race are
contented and happy in servitude, when they
are placed beyond care for themselves and
children. As 't race, they naturally tend to
barbarism, and will certainly land there unless
controlled by the superior white race. Left to
themselves, they fall in La idleness and licen
tiousness, and make themselves miserable.
Where there are large masses of them, they
produce the most disastrous results upon the
communities in which they exist.
In 1790 Hayti was prosperous. It was a
French colony, and contained a population of
half a million, about 40,000 of whom were
whites, 22,000 free negroes, and 432,000 slaves.
Hayti then exported twenty-eight millions of
dollars worth ::;f her produce. Her principal
productions were : Sugar. 163,505,220 lbs.;
Coffee, 78,151,180 lbs.; Cotton, 6,286,126. lbs.;
Indigo, 930,016 lbs.
Emancipation in Hayti occurred at about
the period of 1796. Thirty years later Hayti
exported less than half as much coffee as'in
1790, only 33,000 lbs. of sugar, instead of
more than 163,000,000 lbs , no indigo, and only
about half a million pounds of cotton. In 1849
her exports were: Sugar, none ; Coffee, 30,-
608,343 lbs.; Cotton, 544,516 lbs.; Indigo,

SATURDAY MORNING, AUG. 29, 1863.
EMANCIPATION-THE NEGRO RACE.
The coffee and cotton grow wild. Hayti now
produces very little by cultivation. Her free
negroes will not work. A writer, a resident
there, says : "The indolence of the negro has
brought the once splendid plantations to decay.
They- now gather - coffee - from the grown wild
trees. The cultivation of the sugar cane has
entirely disappeared, and the island that once
supplied the one half of Europe with sugar,
now supplies its own wants from Jamacia and
the United States." He adds : "All is decay
and desolation." Of the Island the writer
"The rich beauty of the tropics is combined
with some of the finest mountain scenery an
"The broad, fertile lagoons, covered with
grOVOS Of orange, citron and coffee, with hero
and there a delicate column of smoke indica•
ting the locality of some invisible dwelling;
groves of mangroves, rising apparently from
the midst of the waters, but indicating the
presence of dangerous shallows, gradually be
•'The mountains are covered with forests of
pine, mahogany, fustic, satin wood, lignum
vitae, and other cabinet woods.
G.A country so capable of producing for ex
port, and therefore for the enrichment of ice
people—besides sugar and coffee, cotton, to
bacco, the cocoa bean, apices, every tropical
fruit, and many of the fruits of Europe—lies
uncultivated, unoccupied, and desolate. Ito
rich mines are neither explored nor worked ;
and its beautiful woods rot in the soil whore
they grow. The present inhabitants despise
all servile labor, and are, for the most part,
content with the spontaneous productions of
the soil and forest."
Not only boo emancipation brought desola
tion upon that rich and beautiful island, but
after nearly 70 years of the African "freed
man's" system, the emancipated negroes, or
their descendants, are fast embracing the bar
beige notions of the 'original tribes in Africa.
A large . class of those', called the iiVaudonx,"
practice the eavageism of their ancestors in
serpent worship, and meet at designated places
for the purpose. They appoint a king, and
place a scarlet band around his head, and a
queen with 8 suerlet scarf. A small green
snake is brought forth and worshipped; and
then naked men and women revel in the most
shocking scenes of drunkenness and licentious
ness. Such has been the result of 70 years of
emancipation in Hayti.
In Jamaica, before emancipation, in 1806,
the exports were $15,000;000. After emanci
pation, in 1854, less than $5,000,000. In five
years, after emancipation, near 400,000 sores
of rich lands were thrown out of cultivation.—
The negroes would not work. They are natu
rally lazy, barbarous, licentious.
These facts show, (and many more can be
produced,) that the negroes must be subordi
nate to the whites, where they exist in any
considerable numbers, or they will become
most wretched themselves, and produce disas
trous results to the community in which they
A NEW CONSTITUTION.
At the "Women's Loyal League" meeting,
held in New York on Friday last, Mr. Johnson,
of the Anti-Slavery Standard, having expressed
a doubt of the constitutional power of the
President to abolish slavery, Mrs. E. Cady
Stanton, the President of the League, re
" If we are a free and independent people,
and have got a Constitution—such that the
wisest and best people c an never tell us where
it stands—she thinks, now that the nation is
upside-down, it will be a good time to get a
Constitution that will read so straight that we
shall know what it says; for after all, Congress
and the President are only the WeatherCOOkil
of public sentiment."
Among the silly things whioh the members
of the League have said and done, the above
we regard by no means.tbe least sensible ; yet
it contains .a suggestion (often put forth by
leading male members of the League puma
sion,) in regard to the Constitution, to which
we think no well-wseher of lie country can
give his assent. If we are to LIMO "a new
PRICE TWO CENTS
Constitution," or such amendments to the old
one as shall be likely to prevent a recurrence
of the terrible strife in which we are now en
gaged, nothing can be plainer than that the
revision should be accomplished in a time of
profound peace, and of universal good-will
among our people—not now, "when the nation
is upside-down," and because it is upside-down,
when the parties directly interested in its pro
visions, and whose fortunes and honor would
be immediately affected thereby, are locked in
a deadly conflict, and could not have a mutual
voice in the work.
But Mr. Stanton is wrong in the start. The
trouble is not that "the wisest and best people
can never tell where it (the Constitution)
stands ;" but in fact that its sacred require
ments are not regarded after they have been
defined. The Constitution is good enough, and
plain enough, and strong enough for any
emergency, and reads "so straight" that a
wayfaring man, though a fool, cannot help but
understand; yet when the officers selected to
execute its provisions repudiate or ignore the
decisions of the learned judges chosen to ex
pound them, what can be expected but confu
sion and disaster?
We go, heart and hand, for "the Constitution
as it is," and deprecate the first intimations of
a desire to effect any change in that instrument
in times like these. This war was inaugurated
to enforce obedience to the supreme law of the
land, and if we ever succeed, it must be fought
out upon the same platform. If the grand end
for which the country's terrible sacrifices are
being made, is suffered to shift about, who
can tell to what bloody lengths it may lead
The fact of the matter is, Mr. Lincoln has
so far yielded to party spirit and partisan
clamor as to pervert the war to such an extent
that its further prosecution with any regard
to constitutional requirements is a simple im.
possibility. To this complexion it has come
at last, that either Abolitionism or the Consti
tution, as a controlling power, must be thrown
overboard. The evident design of the ruling
powers and their party supporters is to let the
latter "slide," but we have yet an abiding faith
that the people will never consent to the aban
donment of the rock upon which our revolu
tionary fathers founded the government, for the
quicksands of fanaticism, which they ever re
garded as the only obstacle in the way of its
Let it go forth, then, from tongue and pen
and ballot-box, that the mountain will not go
to Mahomet, and that Mahomet must come to
the mountain. Never let it be said of us that
we began a war to preserve the Constitution,
but were finally obliged to make a new Con
stitution to. palliate the enormities of the war.

State, residing at Jefferson Oily, where General Loan
was stationed last fall at the time of the November elec
tion, meeting General Loan a few days after the election,
congratulated him on his election, and said he was glad
to see an emancipationist ejected from the St. Joseph
district. General Loan replied that he had never com
mitted himself to the policy of emancipation—that he
confessed to afondness for the institution of slavery.
Mr. Bingham apologized, and told General Loan that he

him it was a mistake."

THE " RECONSTRUCTIOr DISCUS
Most of the leading newspapers teethe coun
try have, within the last few days, entered the
arena, and are discussing, with more or less
ability and much earnestness, the basis, method
and terms of a reconstruction of the Union.
The regular journalists are reinforced, in these
discussions, by hosts of volunteer correspond
ents ; a euro indication that the subject is felt
to be timely and in taking a strong hold on the
public mind. Even the Tribune, which is every
day protesting against such discussions, is
every day drawn into their vortex, publishing
now long communioatiorus on the main question
involved, and now unabridged editorials from
The World, and now argnments of its own to
show the mischiefs and perils of tolerating the
existence of slavery in the restored - Union.
Such discussions are a necessary consequence
of the present military status. When the fiery
meteor of war visibly hastens to its setting, all
eyes naturally turn to the opposite point in the
horizon, and watch for the rising of the orb of
peace. The sole object of the war (certainly
its only legitimate object) is the re-establish
ment of the Union; and it is absurd to sup
pose that the people can look on with stolid in
difference and trust the settlement of so great
a coutro4eray to the discretion of the adminis
tration with the same careless confidence as if
it were a treaty with a petty Indian tribe. It is
contrary to the genius of a free people to take
the infallibility of their rulers for granted in
matters that deeply eoncern the public welfare.
The Canadian Reciprocity treat, was a lead
ing topic with the press for many months ; the
annexation of Texas had to pass the ordeal of
vigorous and vehement discussion in every part
of the country before it was consummated ; and
yet the Tribune professes to think that on a
question of such transcendent interest ss the
restoration of the Union, the people should be
as reticent and apathetic as if they counted for
no more in the settlement than the subjects of
a foreign government.
If the Tribune seeks to stave off discussion
from an apprehension that disouseion will ex
plode the crude theories of the radicals, we
cannot impeach• the•prudence of its advice.
Even in the present early stage of the discus
sion it is apparent that the Abolition policy
cannot stand a close scrutiny even from the
administration point of view. Even if the
Democratic journals and statesmen should
stand aloof, and keep silent, the discussion.
could not go on among the Republican jour
nals without getting them into an inextricable
tangle, presenting knots which the Abolition..
lets can nf-ither cut nor untie. It is on all
hands conceded that Congress has no power
over slavery in States actually in the Union.
Mr. Sumner, the best informed, and one of the
mirt trusted of the radical leaders, concedes
this, and Beata to obviate the difficulty by his
theory, that by the rebellion the Southern
States have committed esuicide," and forfeited
the rights pertaining to them as States. The
general tone of the radical discussions on this
sutject assumes that the rebel States have put
themselves in such relations that they need
readmission to become members of the Union,
and that, on grounds of public policy, an in
dispensable condition of such readmission is
an assent on their part, to the extinction of
slavery within their territorial limits. But if
it' can be proved that the States which have
passed ordinances of secssaien are new States
in the Union, it is obvious that the radical
policy has not even a crutch to stand upon.—
Now it so happens that the administration has,
by its own acts, precluded itself from even
raising the question whether the States in re
bellion aro in the Union_ The two States of
Tennessee and Louisiana passed ordinances of
secession, and joined the Southern Confede
racy iii precisely the same manner as the other
rebel States, No act of Congress has been
passed for their readmission, nor
