But before I to further, I must say, "White, as criticising, ftli are such a nice hand! wlr nl try yourself on Mr ig'e piece. at ell as on nine? for it looks a little awkward, too.

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 me.md 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 " . .1. , ,j1 - - , 1 pass a Jaw that no man anaii anouioj sen his land, ualesa he sells LsoldJ his ne eroes with it 1 would you do so f Now I 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 jmr.t tm m ; V-v sofheen--egTjeT 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.

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 O, yea 1 we hare to "touch off' all the piece" we get, whether from a clodpate" or a congressman. im. laniinian. com: ever, you let l1m rifttit.
