IS TILE RESULT.-Abolitionism has
been agitating the`country for mo r e than
thirty years, :and it has not made' one
• negro .
free, •unless it has stolen him and run him into
Canada; it has ; not 'made one foot of soil free
that would:not have been free . otherwise; and
slave'proPerty. to day is more valuable. than it
has ever been before. • But for abolitionism;
many negrties would have beeii • made free who
are-still .in servitudec , 'several of the slave
States: would hive 'adopted 'plans of gradual
manumission; and slave
,property would' have
been less valuable than it now is.'
ism, has accOnolished no 'good, but a • worlcl of
mischief. • It his made it necessary that great
er discipline should beexercised in the:govern.
anent of the slaves; it has 'caused the,frea ne:
groes to tie e?tpelfed • from some of the - south
ern States, and it 'Will cause them to beexPel
lidfrOm all the others, and it has. produced a
state of feeling between the South end the
Nottlt 'which, if it shall not be abated, • will
cause the dismembirment of the Union.
