BY HENRY V. NIEMEYER,
Aogu-i 29. is in
the constitution d power of doing, what to
the South, of every exercise of power is to
her the most fa'al.
Gen. Harrison sirs SIvhiM I he ak-
ecl if there is no way by which the (eu
'eral Ciovernment can aid t!ip came oflsothe Wi.ii; .ivernor I
'emancipation I answer that it has long
"been an object near my heart, to see the
' whole of its surplus revenue appropr
iated to that object. With the sanction of
the States holding the slaves, there ap
pears to me to be no constitutional oh
"j -ction to its being thus apphed em
"bracing not only the colonization of those
lhat may be otherwise freed, but the
purchase of the freedom of othets"
Such being the 'Unchanged" opinion of
answer io a demanc
ia declared, in
th- (iovcrnor of
Virginia t'at the te ding of a negro
not a felony or rrime withm the meaning
of the constitution, and as such I cannot
surrender the suppo'-d fugdi c to he car
ried to Virginia for trial." The law pro
tects the rutuwav, &the(1overnor the thief;
the mater loe s his s!a e, and he who ste lis
bun ;e- u .ipuni!hed Will it In. denied
thai the xVbolitionis's at the North are uni-

alliance, whatever i zeal, or however'
great its exertions, is doomed to disappoint-!

mend to Congress the appropriation of the i and io the S ate Legislatures, the ir voles

surplus revenue to this object, so near his
heart. I he South and South-west will he
called on to contrdjute this revenue, net
necessary to any legitimate object of the
Government, but to the. purchase and
emancipation of thrir own slave-; and
those who own no slaves are to be taxed
to aid this great scheme of emancipation.
The number of slaves i:i the U. States
exceed three millions which, at a moder
ate average, would be valued at twelve
hundred millions oj 'dollars. Thi would
not only exhaust the public lands the
surplus revenue but would r; quire a di
rect tax on something more substantial
than chickens ami ducks; anil would
more likely call for th;-; Tile of the log cab
in man s cow in in tut? purchase oi nis
gun, about wh'ch, at one time, we he rd
so much. To the same question, Mr.
Van Huron answers that Congress has no
such power and 'the consent of the
States" cannot add any p.v.ver whieh Con
gress does not already possess under the
Constitution. To the question--' V onld
you sanction any bill granting appropri
ations of the public money to any State,
for the emancipation of their slaves"
JUr. Van liuren answers "I unhesita
tingly sav, Congress could not, and that
1 never would give my sanction to such a
In the same letter, he further adds If
State consent could confer power, when
the want of it. otherwise be so manifest
might it not lead to attempts by the
Federal Government to accomplish the
came object, without either the ceusent of
the slave holder or indemnity for his losr.?"'
That such would be the consequence none
can question, who will loM; around and see
what is passing on this momentous subject
The supporters of Gen. Harrissoa, to a
man, from the non-s-iaveholding Sta;cs,
have voted in Congre-s against the resolu
tions forbidding the introduction of Aboli
tion petitions. They ate pledged to a re
peal of those resolutions. This will be
iheir first move, should they gain a ma
jority. The. abolition of slavery in the
District of Columbia, iuxt. Then the
interdiction of carrying slues from one
Slate to another tor sale. Thus encour
'aged, like the murderer, fatally bent on
mischief," their next and final move will
be universal emancipation. This i no
chimera, intended Io alarm, but a reasonable
calculation, which ihe feeii.t, and conduct
of the Abolitionists fully justifies. The
bold and impudent res .lotions of the
'World's Convention," in London, declar
ing the sale and transfer ot negro s from the
"older to tue more mewlv eetikd States,
and log cabin proee.-ieiis the ballot box is
