eatest political opponent, Clay, always called him his friend. This is not the place to set forth the motive for the ever growing rupture between the States. The writer of this article has contributed to this subject in the pages of the Kreuz Zeitung. Only as a curious fact for the superficial critics of the whole conflict, it may here be stated that at the beginning of the settlement of the country, the Southern States had a greater aversion to slavery than the Northern States. From 1720 to 1760, South Carolina unceasingly protested against the introduction of negro labor. Georgia forbade it by law. Virginia decidedly opposed it and levied a tax of ten dollars on each negro. They were originally forced to adopt this system through the avarice of the English merchants, and the despotism of the English ministers which had later, certainly for the South, its demoralizing features. It was the South also which at first prohibited the slave trade, and Virginia at the head.
