Hence it IWii argued, that as the language of this L (.rertrietive in its terms, and merely pro- fr r . „f the exercise of the jiowcr of internict- ihetmlli 1 ' for » l*eriod of time, it cannot he re- il on as containing a grant of such power, at the t'muon of the time limited. That it imports I* , rfjubstauitivo jiowcr, but merely a limi- ISr«f powr. a,Ml that no power can arise by filirat'A oit of the negative words of prohib- P This reasoning proceeds upon sound Liid.-s of logic and construction, hut there J defect in the promises, and consequently , eonelusioa arrival at, is erroneous. Tiiat feet of the oremises consists in taking it for lilted that liiis clause is the only constitution- provision relating to the question. If this is true, it ir list occur to the mind of him who lions upon it in that view, tiiat this provis os singularly absurd. For, why limit a pow- vvhich had not been granted? What sense is tii. ro instring, that Congress shall not pro- hit this importation prior to the year 1808, if sndi negative words of restriction, Con- e« could not prohibit it, before or after that We cannot impute such absurdity to the acinus framers. The recognitionof the pow- i, so clearly manifest in tliis provision, tiiat 6 hc ltd to conclude, cither that they inten- l,inmvey the power hy the clause itself, or n it bad reference to a power granted in some icr provision of tlio instrument That they ended to convey it by the clause itself, is jveJ.v probable for two reasons: In the fit st ir. this clause is not found classed with tho ni> of power. The 8th Section of the 1st We embodies an enumeration of all the pow- inted to Congress, and concludes with the diary grantof power "to make all laws which 3 lie necessary and proper for carrying into cation tho foregoing powers, and all other ccrs vested hy this Constitution in tho Gov- nacnt of the United Slates, or in any depart- nt or office tliereof.’' And then follows im- Jutcly in tlio 0th Section, the prohibitions on the powers contained in the 8th Section. x very first of these prohibitions in the clause question, followed hy many other nrohihito- provisions, running through tlio whole of the h and 10tli Sections. Now this power to pro- bit the importation of slaves was certainly no nioddereble power. It is not reasonable to ilir tiiat it was considered so small in itself, »t it might llow as an incident to the restrict- t »onls limiting tho time. The power, in its line, ms of vast magnitude. It was one luVli the Slates had not surrcndeml by the minus Confederation, It was one which, they id Wvn expressly exercising in their separate tginlatures. It therefore involved a grant to .ingress of iuiporlant power, upon a most im- nrtint suljtvi. Is it reasonable that it should ne been intended, that these prohibitory words f-these terms of negation—should convey it by idv logical inference? And is it reasonable ml the grant should have been classed among nutations and restrictions? In theseeond place, lii not jirolahle that they so intended, because b is not the form and style of the words cm- Aiied hy them, in making other important Wits of power to the Congress. The very na pe of the system they were forming—which a system composed of powers surrendered od imparted by the separate States—limited in »ir very nature—forbids tho idea. No men fcteiood better what they were doing. None hr knew better the force of legal and constitu- ka! language. Nono knew butter than they, Mt juicers did not spring from words of nega- n And no one now knows better than they ,tiiat if they had really intended in their u> convey tliis power to Congress, by nonls—that intention would have failed, louse it was not siipjmrted by the-words. ■lumen is the great rule of interpretation, but is only a rule of interpretation. It is not to cwwd so far as to make tiiat the law, which «(Mauled to make, but neglected or failed lulls. And I am free to confess, that if these eels in-the only foundation of the power, that w though intended to be granted, was not tated, anil is unconstitutionid. But ue these words the only foundation for «;power? They evidently refer to the power mil they restrict They arc of much force this iminstigation, for they demonstrate be- *nd all question, tiiat the power over this sub- *• *'«s rvcognined by tlie framers of tho Con- jUMkw, as living contained in the instrument nut then does that clear recognition havo rc- t* 1 * to ? Beyond all doubt to some of the | |Wf Mntiintsi in the section preceding. To tnnt of power to “regulate commerce with “JV” nations and among tho several States, kw with the Indian tribes.” This is the clause ““t contains tlie power; it is no incidental or pjphei power; it is no implication from pro- »'tt«y wonts; it Is the living spirit of a speci- *' P*nt Fortunately for us, we are not with- bt the light of contemporaneous history and *tnn|uraucous construction upon this point Aw provision relating to the limitation of time, liin which the jiower should not be exerted, s'; rise to facts, and is connected with circum- pfevs, which throw a Hood of light upon this PMiim. In tho Convention the attempt was P* to except the Slave Trade from tlie gcnc- * power over foreign commerce. The first ^ of the Constitution as presented by the [***•* uf five, contained the prohibition in vonb: "No tax or duty shall lie laid *•> 0,1 >ht migration or importation of such *■< the several States shall think proper •Wuit; nor shall such migration or iinporta- prohibited.” This was voted down by ^‘ Stales against three—tlie three being the ‘ iwilinas and Georgia. The matter was ’wfened to another committee, composed “legate from each State, with a view of conflicting sentiments; and they .it >n its present shape, except tiiat the ,i * ID1 ited was “ono thousand eight hundred,” j *®cnded by adding the words “and ; . ,ri| l tlius it was adopted, by a vote of ''l to four.

I found the Eastern States, not withstanding their aversion to Slavery, were very willing to indulge the Southern States, at least with a temporary liberty to prosecute the Slave Trade, provided the Southern States would in their turn gratify them by laving no restrict ion on navigation acts; and after a very little time, the committee, by a great majority, agreed on a report by which tlie General Government was to be prohibited from preventing the im portation of Slaves for a limited time, and the restrictive clause relative to navigation acts was to be omitted. This report was adopted by a majority of the Convention, but not without considerable opposition.” Thus it appears that the little indulgence which Georgia and South Carolina procured, of twenty years, for the Slave Trade, was procur ed by a compromise, and that compromise was etlected in the committee by the aid of the cir cumstance of a conflict relative to the proposi tion in regard to the sulycct of navigation acts. Even then it met with considerable opposition upon being submitted to the Convention. This arose from the fact of tho strong opposition which was felt by most of the States to the Slave Trade. Most of them had already pro hibited tlie traffic by State legislation. It hail even liecn a cause of grievance lie fore the De claration of Independence, that Great Britain continued to force the traffic upon the unwilling Colonies. In tlie original draftof Independence, this was specified in tiiat array of lioyal ini- S uitics set forth in tiiat imperishable paper in icso words: (after denouncipg the Slave Trade in such language as Jefferson alone could em ploy) “he lias prostituted his negativo for sup pressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce.” This was struck out in deference to those States who were still in fcvor of that commerce. All this will serve to show the state of this question pri or to the Convention,and at the time. It was onc,about which there existed profound concern. Is it likely, then, that the Convention were Earning the Constitution with loose ideas upon this point 9 AVerc they leaving the power, which was so necessary to be conferred on Con gress for its extinction, to be derived from un certain implications ? But Air. Martin says the clause as finally adopted was not without consid erable opposition. And on this point he shows what view was entertained of tlio power confer red by the clause “to regulate commerce with foreign nations.” lie says “it was urged that, by the system we were giving the General Gov ernment full and absolute power to regulate commerce, under which power it would have a right to restrain or totally prohibit the Trade: it must therefore appear to the world absurd and disgraceful to the last degree, that wc should except from the exercise of that power the only branch of commerce which is unjustifiable in its nature and contrary to the rights of man kind—that, on the contrary, wc ought rather to prohibit expressly in our Constitution the furth er importation of SInves, Ac.” The power to pro hibit it after the time limited was denied by none; Some even desired it to be prohibited by tlie Constitution itself, and not merely left to the discretion of Congress—he among the number. And had it not been for the compromise aliove alluded to, the power of Congress without limi tation of time, would hare been absolute, or else the Constitution would have contained an ex press interdiction. The next authority which I propose to adduce, to prove that this is no ambiguous power, is that of Mr. Madison. In one of his luminous articles, Number 42 of the Federalist, he says, “Tho second class of powers lodged in the Gen eral Government consists of those which regu late the intercourse with foreign nations, to-wit: to make treaties, Ac., Ac., to regulate commerce, including a power to prohibit, after tho year 1808, the importation of Slaves, and to lay an intermediate duty of ten dollars per head, as a discouragement to such importations.” In the same No. he says: “It was doubtless to he wished that the power of prohibiting the im portation of Slaves had not been postponed un til the year 1803, or rather that it had been suf fered to have immediate operation.” Story,_ in in his Commentaries on the Constitution, VoL 2 S 1337, says, in reference to the clause in tho !)th section: “This dauso of the Constitution, respecting the importation of Slaves, is mani- fectly on exception from the power of regulating commerce. Migration seems appropriately to apply to voluntary arrivals as importation does to involuntary arrivals and so far as an excep tion from a power,proves ts existence, this provi s that the power to regulate commerce applies c- qurJly to the regulation of vessels employed in transporting men who pass from place to place voluntarily, as to those who pass involuntarily.” Chancellor Kent, VoL I. page 180, observes: “Tlie Constitution of the United States laid the foundation of a scries of provisions, to put a final stop to the progress of this great moral pestilence, by admitting a power in Congress to prohibit the importation of Slaves, after the expiration of the year 1807. Prior to that time, Congress did all on this subject tiiat it was within their competence to do.”—This last sentence refers to acts of Congress, passed at an early day after the adoption of the Constitution, upon kindred subjects to that of the imjiortation of.Slaves. And theso acts were passed under the powers con tained in the clause, respecting the regulation of commerce. They were passed too by the early statesman, many of whom were members of the Convention. By tlie acts of March 22d, 17!*4, and May 10,1800, the citizens of tho Uni ted States and residents within them, were pro hibited from engaging in the transportation ot Slaves from the United States, to any foreign place or country, or from one foreign place to another. These provisions prohibited our citi zens from all concern in the Slavo Trade, with the exception of direct importation into the U ni- ted States; and the most prompt and early steps were taken within tho limits of the Con stitution, to interdict tiiat part of the traffic al so. These latter are the act of 1807, prohilnt- ing the importation of Slaves into the United States, under severe penalties; the act of 1810 increasing the jicnaltics, and extending the pro hibition, not only to importations into the Uni ted States, hut generally against any citizen of tho United States, being concerned in the Slave Trade; the act of 1810, authorizing national armed vessels to be sent to tho coast of Africa, to stop the Trade, so for as our citizens were engaged in it, and subjecting their vessels and effects to seizure and confiscation; and finally the act of 1820, which went still farther, and made it punishable as piracy. Thcsc last acts have been recently assailed as unconstitutional, hy eminent Southern men; and of coursejf l»y I'llllUUIIl OTUUIL-I ll lull., — " these are unconstitutional,so must be those of 11 ■ 40 and 1800. It would seem to be sufficient to say that they were passed at an early day, and hy men whoought to have known the extent of the pow ers, as many of them were framers of the Consti tution itself The Courts have adjudicated rases arising under these statutes,and recognized their validity—sec the case of the Marine in the 9th Wheaton. Tho ground upon which these acts were at tacked as unconstitutional in tho recent Mont gomery Convention, was that they are unequal n their operation upon the interests of the States. That they fciled to lay any restraint, or prohibition upon the immigration ofwhite la borers to tho North, and that that immigration increased the power and added to tlie wealth of that section, while theso prohibitions of the Slave Trade, cutoff from the South importations Of negro laborers, and thereby prevented us from tiiat accession to our political power, and toour wealth. This objection, it seems to me, *f worth anything at all should havo been mado before tlie Convention which formed the Constitution or before tho State Conventions which ratified and adopted it If it proves anything, it proves too mneh; it proves tiiat the Constitution was wrong. If we make much more progress in statesmanship and political science, it will per haps be discovered that the Constitution itself is unconstitutional i for, certainly, in its opera tion over a country so diversified ours, it cannot be always perfectly equal in every practiral conscqucnceaml result No system of imports was ever yet so adjusted as to come up to this rule of constitutional equality; there never was perfect evenness in its operatons upon cu n State. Tlie Post Office system, on this ground, must be likewise set aside as unconstitutional, lliccs, anil more routes and fitter contracts in some States than othenj- Tlie distribution of Executive patronage, which done by virtue of the same coii-ditutioual sys tem, is all unconstitutional on the same ground, for it Is never perfectly equal ainongjhe sections, the States or the people. Suppose an act was passed legalizing and re-opening the Slave Trade, might not the freeesoil States of New England, where they have no negro slavery, and could not profitably maintain it, if they would, complain that the traffic worked inequality to them, by inuring exclusively to the benefit of the South ern States ? Then, tlie act would he unconsti tutional. I am the advocate of equality among the States; equality of Sovereignty, of rights and of legislation as for as is practicable; hut I cannot go that far. I think if that idea had been a fundamental ono with our ancestors, in tho sense of this objection, it would have defea ted all efforts to establish the Union. The true rule of equality, which is to govern Congress in the exercise of the power regulating commerce with foreign nations, and among the States, is laid down by the Constitution itself It was not left to conjecture, or to such consequences as might arise from the inevitable course of trade, under any regulation of a general nature, which in many instances could not he foreseen, and then would require the workings of exper ience to decide upon its constitutionality, or un- constitutionality ; and which in other instances would vary witli the changing course of com mercial affairs, and thereby a measure equal at tlio time of its adoption, become unequal under a change of circumstances. A safer and better rule than that’ vague and changeable test of equality was prcscribed,and ifa regulation comes up to it there is an cml of the dispute about its equality of operation. Here is the rule: “No tax or duty shall he laid on articles exported from any State. No preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue, to the ports of one State over those of another; nor shall vessels bound to orfrom one State, be o- bliged to enter, clear or jtay duties in another If tiiesc acts violate this provision, they are un constitutional on the ground of inequality. Tlie wisdom of prescribing such a test i- s manifest in every view we can take of it It Would he extremely unreasonable to say, tiiat a law, gen eral in its terms, and relating to the commerce of the entire country, should be subjected to the trial of experience, to ascertain whether or not it’ would work out with perfect equality upon the diversified interests of every section and every Stnte,and then after tlie trial, tiiat it should be decided, tiiat it was constitutional or uncon stitutional ; and equally unreasonable if from the inevitable diversity of interests, it should not prove equal in its applicability to these sections or States, to declare it unconstitutional.—This would destroy all legislation. And see in what a contradictory way tiiat test would he applied in reference to the very measures under consid eration. There is a large class of Northern pco- £ le, who regard tlie influx of the foreign popu- ition as an evil to the North. As great an evil to them, in the estimation of iome, as the influx of wild Africans would be in the estimation of others, into the South. Now, might they not complain that these regulations of commerce which exclude African importation upon the South, and leave open their ports to tlio influx of the foreign population, are unjust to the North and unequal in their operation ? Might not the Northern laborer say, you pour upon us the la boring population from Europe and reduce the wages of our labor; whereas, in the South, you exclude the importation of Africa Slave labor, and thereby keep up the wages of labor in the South? These illustrations are sufficient to show that there is no other test of equality, which can properly be applied, but that one which the Constitution lias fixed for itself. A Caution to Young ITIcu. .V young medical student from Michigan who had been attending lectures in New York for some time, and considered himself exceedingly good looking and fascinating, made a deadly on set on the heart and fortune of a blooming young lady who was boarding in the same house with him. After a prolonged siege the lady surren dered. They were married on Wednesday mor ning. The same afternoon the “young wife” sent for and exhibited to the astonished student “a beautiful little daughter,” three and a lialf years of age. “Good Heavens! then you were a widow,” exclaimed the astonwHtd ntuJwt - “Yes, my dear, and this is Amelia, iny youn gest; to-morrrow Augustus, James and Reuben will arrive from the country *and then I shall have all my children together once more.” The unhappy student replied not a word, his feelings were too deep for utterance. The next day the the “other darlings” arrived. Reuben was 0 years old, James 9, and Augustus a saucy boy of 12. They were delighted to hear that they had a “new papa,” because they could live at homo and have all tlie playthings they wan ted! Tho “now papa," as soon as he could speak, remarked that Augustus and James did not much resemble Reuben and Amelia. “Well, no,” said the happy mother, “:ny first husband was quite a different style of tempera ment, color of hair and eyes—all different” This was too much, he had not only married a widow, hut was her third husband, and the astonished step-father of four children. ' “But her fortune,” thought he. “that will make amends.” He spoke of her fortune. These are my treasures," says she, in tlie Roman matron style, pointing to her children. Tlie conceit was now quite taken out of tlie Slichigandcr, who, finding that lie hail made a complete goose of himself, at once retired to a farm in his native State, where he could have a chance to render his ‘lioys’ useful, and make them sweat for the deceit practiced upon him hy their mother. Curing Hams. A correspondent, Mr. Wo. II. Bennett, of Warwick, R. I., sends as the following descrip tion of a method practiced with great success hy him for several years in curing hams: lie first takes the cask in which tlie hams are to be salted, and smokes it for lialfanliouriover a low fire made with walnut chips. He then mokes a pickle for two hundred pounds of ham by dissolving fourteen pounds of Turk’s Island salt, half a pound of saltpeter, and two quarts of molasses in sufficient water to cover tlie meat when placed in the barrel This pickle is skimmed while the salt is being dissolved nt a scalding heat When cooled down this brine is poured upon the liams in tlie barrel, and they are allowed to lay in it until they are salted.— They are then lilted out, hung up to dry, and are afterwards rubbed over with a composition of fine salt, black and red pepper, and some ground cloves. When this operation is perfor med, they are sewed in bags, and hung up with shanks downwards. A dry, cool attic cham ber is the best place to keep them. Hams thus preserved havo a very excellent flavor, and do not require to go through the smoking process. The simple smoking of tlie cask will havo the effect of communicating a mild, smoky savor to the meat. Of this we are confident, because we hare seen it done, and ran endorse Mr. Ben nett’s experience in regard to his feature of the process. Wc believe his process is a good one. Scientific American. Pkoclivitv to IIumbco.—A celebrated swind- lercss thus narrates one of her operations: “I was onco in tlio city of 11 ashington, ex amining heads, At, and had rather had luck. I couldn't much more than make my board, and determined in some way to raise the wind So I one day sent tho man who traveled with me to a swamp, where he cut two hundred sticks. These he drew to the city, according to my or ders, and put them on the streets to sell as canes from the Mount Vernon estate, and all of them readily sold for a dollar a piece. ’I don’t Fup- josc,’ added the madam, That a single man who jouglit a cane cared any more for Washington than I do, but they thought it would be a nice idea to have a cane from his farm, and they nev- knew the difference. I tell you there is noth in/ like humbug- People will pay more for it than for anything else; and so long as they will be humbugged, 1 might as well make something out of it as anybody.
