eks enslaved Greeks, as the Hebrew often consented to make the Hebrew his absolute lord, as Anglo-Saxons trafficked in Anglo-Saxons, so the negro race enslaved its own brethren. The oldest accounts of the land of the negroes, like the glimmering traditions of Egypt and Phenicia, of Greece and of Rome, bear witness to the existence of domestic slavery and the caravans of dealers in negro slaves. The oldest Greek historian Herodotus, l. IV. c. 181—185. Compare Heeren, XIII. 187 and 231; Blair's Roman Slavery, 24. commemorates the traffic. Negro slaves were seen in classic Greece, and were known at Rome and in the Roman empire. It is from about the year 990, that regular accounts of the negro slave-trade exist. At that period, Moorish merchants from the Barbary coast first reached the cities of Nigritia, and established an uninterrupted exchange of Saracen and European luxuries for the gold and slaves of Central Africa. Even though whole caravans were sometimes buried in the s

King James, had been the deputy of Andros for the consolidated provinces of the north, and had been expelled from New York by the insurgent people; and his successor was Andros himself, fresh from im- 1692 prisonment in Massachusetts. The earlier administration of the ardent but narrow-minded Nicholson was signalized by the establishment of the college of William and Mary, the first fruits of the revolution, in age second only to Harvard; at the instance of the learned and persevering commissary Blair, whose zeal for future generations was aided by subscriptions, by a gift of quitrents from the king, by an endowment from the royal domain, and by a tax of a penny a pound on tobacco exported to other plantations. To the care of Andros the historical inquirer owes the preservation of those few early papers of Virginia which have escaped official neglect, fires, time, and civil wars; but neither from them nor from their successors was there hope of an enlargement of civil freedom.

Fessenden, the ablest and most rabid of the Republicans, spoke so disrespectfully of the Peace Conference that Mr. Crittenden came near knocking him down. --He advanced to within striking distance of him, shook or held his fist out at him, and said something to him in tones too low to be caught. It is believed that the old gentleman did not mince his words. So, putting this thing and that thing together, the submissionists are mightily disheartened to-day. They think because Chase and Blair are going in the Cabinet, there will be coercion, and so the Border States will be forced out of the inestimable Union. They need not be alarmed. There is no danger.--Chase has said. "Inauguration first; adjustment afterward." Besides, if the Border States can be driven out of the Union only at the point of the bayonet, it is very evident that their proper place is not with the South, not yet in a Confederacy of their own. They belong to the North. The speeches of Stanton and Kilgore
