Tho Union Is thoro no Dangor
of its Dissolution?
Almost from tlio foundation of tbo gov
crnuicut, and certainly within tbo last
twonty.fiva yoars, tbo dissolution of tbo
Union has boon much discussed, and somo
times openly mena'ood. Tbo coimtry has
passed through several crisis in its.bistory,
in which tho dissolution of tlio Union
feomcd imminent. Womecdonly alludo
to tho periods of the restrictive system of
Jefferson, tbo lalo war with England, tho
admission of Missouri, tbo Nullification
era, tbo compromiso measures of 1950, and
recently tbo Kansas imbroglio. And now,
ns tho latter question may bo regarded as
settled, raoit people may believo tho Union
as in no danger, at tho present time, cer
tainly. But, is these now really no danger of
disunioc-uo causes in existence which
may ripen into a dissolution of the Union?
Wo few tint this question cannot bo an
swered in tho negative.
Communities, liko individuals, are gov
erneu by their interests. Their decisions
and actions are controlled ultimately by
their transcendent material interests. And
what is tho condition of this country, and
what its great material interests ? They
are apparent to tho most casual observer.
It is divided into two great sections, differ
ing in climate, soil, products, and institu
tions. Tho ..prc'douiinasat interests of tho
.North, whiohfis-'on'o of tho great divisions
to which we- alludo, are agricultural and
manufacturing; andhose interests prosper
better -unaer a. systom or freo labor. In--deed,
slave labor is not adapted to such
intcrcsls, and plaves can be mado useful
and profitable only as domestio servants.
Tho dsmand, therefore, for slave labor in
the North, is not, at present, sufficient to
ovcrbalanco tho projudico and fanatioism
which havo' boon excited by demagogues
agaii'St tho systom of domestio slavery.
But it is different at tho South. In' that
section of the Union, and especially in the
great plmting States, negro slavo labor is
absolutely essential to tbo development of
their, resources. Thoro tho, climato is hot,
and tboso .portions which aro dovoted to
the production of tho great staples of cot-1
ton,sug!r and rico, ore moro or loss afloet
ed by deleterious malaria, which render it
impossible for tbo -white man to labor upon
tbo soil. And benco, to a great extent,
that portion of. tho Union which now pro-1
duces the most valuable staples of commerce,
if it were not for slavo labor, would have
to bo resigned to forests and tho wild beasts
Wa consider that tho choieo of tho people
of tbo plm ting Slates of the Union, lies
bctweon tho surrender and destruction of
tho groat cottonand sugar interests, and
tbo abolition of slavery.
It seems to us, that slavery is a necessity
to c-ur brethren of tho planting States,
primarily to them, and consequentially,
we may add, to tho whole civilized world,
as wo will endeavor to show hereafter.
Thereforo, they do and will insist on re
taining the institution. They desiro to
retain Iho institution without molestation
by their brethren of tho Northern State3.
But, they, cannot. On tho contrary, they
find themselves and their institutions and
iutcrcsts constantly misrepresented, vitu
perated menaced and interfered with, by
tho pretended philanthropists of tbo North.
Hero', then, we ra ay observe one causo
which isj and will bo, constantly working
for a dissolution of tbo Unln. Hut there
uro other and ovon moro potent oaiises at
work to bring about such a catastrophe.
Slavo labor is becoming, in proportion
to iho demand, scorcer and consequently
dearer. Tho world demands more cotton,
sugar, and other staples of tho warm cli
mates, than tho proseiH capital and labor
devoted to it, oan'.siipply. Hence, there is
n greater demand for tho' opening of moro
lands adapted to such products, and con
sequently, for moro slavo labor, which is
the only kind of labor that can bo employed
in their cultivation. That demand for the
oponirjg of moro land for cotton and sugar,
and consequently for more slave labor, is
increasing even in tbo. United States. Wo
havo now much moro land capablo of pro
ducing cotten and sugar, than we have
clave labor to cultivate it. Hence, there
id a largo and increasing demand, for an
addition to slavo labor by means other
than tho natural increase of tbo slaves.
An increase by any .other means, is, and
probably vf ould be, successfully opposed by
the free States of tho Union. And yet,
the necessity for it will continue to increase)
and its want continue to be moro deeply
felt by tho ppoplo of tho South. - And here
wo may noto another causo which will, in
the future, constantly operato to bring
cbout a dissolution of the Union,
What will be tbo effect of tho operation
of these two causes, to say nothing of tbo
d-ngers resulting from tho ambition of
aspiring and restless men with which our
ouuntry .'abounds J. They will continuo to

And tho North secures nothing but iho

between tho North and South ?
Tho dissolution of tho Union effected,
what will bo tho ultimato destiny of the

of all the great tropical otaplcs, whose
mountains and valloys glitter with mineral
wealth, whoso political and social institu
tions havo become effete, arc tottering from
decay,and whoso groatis the renovating aim

race? What a field for ambition. What
a scopo for the mero fortune hunlcr. What

man. Will not theso regions bo ultimately

not Mexico, tho West India Islands, and
Central Amoiico, ultimately fail into iho
possession of tbo South? Will it not bo

ag sho will bo, to favor this grand and
magnificent policy of acquisition and an
nexation? And then, with tho control of
cotton, sugar, and tho other great tropical
staples, will not tho Southern Republic
truly control the commerce of tho world.
Do tho peoplo of the North" imagine that
thoughts like these, do not run through the
busy brains of tho restless and ambitious
men of tho South nay, tho adventurous of
all sections of tho Union? There is a
class of men at tho South whom we, of tbo
North, denominato " nltraists" and " firo
eators," Whence do they originate? Is
it the paltry squabble) about Kansas, or tho
Compromiso Aleasures, or aro tboso the
mero pretexts ? Aro they not tho product

content between tho two great sections of
tho Uniun, of the ambitious thoughts, and
of tho possiblo destiny of the South, to
