the WW. John' Long.Vm. may think
1 neglect his addiess. I nust, therefore.
retaVn a short answer, aid leave it to
roil to rectify my r nimmM. But before
I to further, I must say,
"White, as
ftli are such a nice hand!

N'o,'oiotne lo the point i Sometime
130, I wis looking over a newspaper, and
noticed that Mr. Long had introduced a
pe'iiion to frewi1' masters from separa
ting man anf wife among their negroea.
A; this was the first time I evecaaw of
Mr. Long' jiaking any movement in Con
i' (ess, it draw my particular notice. At
first, the tang appeared well enough;
hut a few minutes rc Or (tion aatisficd me
that Mr. Loighad made a bad beginning
and, for thi reason, I wrote the piece
against his nUion. He has cbmebut and
answered tries to excuse himself s
but I don't think his excuses are good
ones. His fint excuse is, that he was
rrquetted to da so. Now, Mr. Long. 1
ask you seriously, is this a sufficient ex
cuse ? Ja a nrn, and more than that, is
a member of Congress, bonnd to do a
silly thing, ecu he is requested SO to
do? i'uppose some 44 respectablesource'
was to request you to urge congress to

sk if Congress rant as well do this, as to
say that a master shall not sell his'negro
man, unlea . he also sells, at the" Same
time, and to the sime person, the negto
woman loo f It is the grievous m'nfvrtunf
of the Southern States, that they have
slaves X' but eb 4ong-s thia Js ihe casei
these slat es must be treated as property 1
and, aa tuch. neither Congress, nor Mr,
lyong, nor Quaker-meetings, have any
right to mednle in the business.
But the next excuse Mr. Long oners,
is, that if Congress was werej to meet
the petition, he says it will would not

the constitution. Mr, MHig Is n
far as regard tnv Southern negroes, for
I have but a small stock of them and
what I have, I would'ent sell, even to a
shell bark quaker. Out as to the cousti
tution, I can't say what one he reads, tho'
I suspect it is not the one signed by
Washington; for that one, I am sure,
4loilsJlj(reas iur.uaket'iect'
1ngfc,lb'"aay"man"ahalT"iiot sell b!a own
Mr. Long seems to speak shout our
Southern negroea, in a style as if he was
were not from' the South. It is like
ly he may not have the Southern interest
much at heart i but he must not forget,
that hi constituents are Southern people ;
and that he represents the whitci, as well
as the negroes
It would be well enough for Mr. Long,
when he offers petitions of this sort, to
keep in mind what a noise was made in
Congress when he first went there, about
the "negroes of Missouri -and how the
Vankies and Quakers wished to fix that
business. 1 know, Mr. White, that I nm
not . capable pf .holding , a hand against a
Cangrtttman Jn 1 writing, otherwise I might
call upon Mr. Long to answer some more
of his doings, tmce the negro petition :
that is, I saw his name on the list of the
little caucus that was held one night last
month. Certainly, Mr. Long was not
requetted to do this by any Quaker-meeting,
or any other 44 respectable source."
I suppose he thinks that we people are
not hi to elect a President, and that he
would will set us right, But as his ob
ject was to rtammend to his constituents,
I hope he will let the rule wort both ways,
and not get angry again, if one of his con
stituents, in turn, recommenat to him, in
iuture, .not., lojae, meddling with, negro
petitions, and theaj? ,nAf-caucuses.
P. S, Some 'Other writer, before Jd.
Long came out, also tried to answer my
piece 1 but he seems to make a poor hand
at argument. He tries to excuse Mr.
Long, by saying that one Mr. Stanley,
done did the same thing j in this, how
