'the only hope for the te moval of the giant evil is to be found in the ope ration of those silent yet potent laws of political economy, which must ultimately determine the question between free and slave labor. In such a Contest, barbarism has but slight een'se for hepe, intln's age of invention, enlightenment and pro gress..
