Excerpt from Southern Wealth and Northern Profits: As Exhibited in Statistical Facts and Figures; Showing the Necessity of Union to the Future Prosperity and Welfare of the Republic

The Emperor of the French has said, that "France is the only nation that goes to war for an idea." With more truth may it be said, that "the United States is the only nation that goes to destruction for an idea." This appears, however, to be the settled policy of a party at the North. The United States, at the age of seventy years, have exhibited a degree of success in working out the "experiment" of self-government, that has baffled the sagacity, while it has excited the admiration, of the most far-seeing statesmen of the Old World. This great success manifests itself in the international peace that the country enjoys, its rapid increase in numbers, the general wealth of the people, and the vast aggregate which that wealth presents.

At the close of the War of Independence, the country was composed of exhausted Colonies, having a population of 3,172,464 whites. The government was heavily in debt and without credit, the channels of trade flooded with irredeemable and depreciated paper that had driven away specie, national bankruptcy and individual insolvency were the rule. The people were destitute of capital and manufactures; the employment of the shipping apparently destroyed, and the future presenting but little hope. There were 751,868 black slaves, who were without employment that would earn their own support, and their fate and that of their masters gave ample cause of uneasiness, as well to statesmen as to owners. To abandon the blacks to their fate, under the plea of philanthropy, suggested itself to many. The employment of Northern ships was mostly the slave-trade, while the South, having daily less employment for the blacks, was determined to stop their arrival, - a measure which the North regarded as depriving it of its legitimate business. Thus growing jealous...

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Southern Wealth and Northern Profits: As Exhibited in Statistical Facts and Figures; Showing the Necessity of Union to the Future Prosperity and Welfare of the Republic We have endeavored, in the following pages, to trace the gradual development of this great wealth, to show its sources, the course of the resulting trade, and the great profits derived from sectional intercourse, harmony, and dependence. The mutual benefit will be found to be large and that, on the other hand, the disasters of disunion would be only the more terrible for the greatness of former success. In the midst of this prosperity, a wanton attack, by political and cleri cal agitators, is made upon sister States, a new idea of morality is conjured up as a means of stirring up domestic strife, and wantonly destroying the source of all this material good. Historians record with surprise the amazing folly of George the Third and his ministers, who drove the colonies into rebellion for a system But they wanted revenue. What will the future historian say of the North, which destroyed its source of profit for a more trivial pretence! The monkey that persisted in sawing off the limb between himself and the tree, seems to be the model of modern sagacity. We are told that there is no intention of destroy ing the institutions of the States - that the design is only to exclude the institu tion from territory where it would have been long since had nature permitted. There is here, then, nothing practical a mere pretence of agitating the popular mind and engendering animosities, for the mere sake of those animosities. The national prosperity, the domestic peace, the safety of life and property, the very existence of the nation, are jeopardized for an idea, admitted by the agitators to be fruitless. The agitation has at the North no one practical application what ever; while at the South, it has in the background servile insurrection, blood shed, and annihilation of person and property, involving ultimately the ruin of the North.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 180 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Excerpt from Southern Wealth and Northern Profits: As Exhibited in Statistical Facts and Figures; Showing the Necessity of Union to the Future Prosperity and Welfare of the RepublicThe Emperor of the French has said, that France is the only nation that goes to war for an idea. With more truth may it be said, that the United States is the only nation that goes to destruction for an idea. This appears, however, to be the settled policy of a party at the North. The United States, at the age of seventy years, have exhibited a degree of success in working out the experiment of self-government, that has baffled the sagacity, while it has excited the admiration, of the most far-seeing statesmen of the Old World. This great success manifests itself in the international peace that the country enjoys, its rapid increase in numbers, the general wealth of the people, and the vast aggregate which that wealth presents. At the close of the War of Independence, the country was composed of exhausted Colonies, having a population of 3, 172, 464 whites. The government was heavily in debt and without credit, the channels of trade flooded with irredeemable and depreciated paper that had driven away specie, national bankruptcy and individual insolvency were the rule. The people were destitute of capital and manufactures; the employment of the shipping apparently destroyed, and the future presenting but little hope. There were 751, 868 black slaves, who were without employment that would earn their own support, and their fate and that of their masters gave ample cause of uneasiness, as well to statesmen as to owners. To abandon the blacks to their fate, under the plea of philanthropy, suggested itself to many. The employment of Northern ships was mostly the slave-trade, while the South, having daily less employment for the blacks, was determined to stop their arrival, - a measure which the North regarded as depriving it of its legitimate business. Thus growing jealousy was added to other evils. The lapse of seventy years has changed all that. The North has come to rival the mother country in manufactures - her shipping is the first in the world - capital of every description has become redundant - the Federal debt is nominal, and local wealth superior in Massachusetts to that of any community of like numbers in the world. The condition of the South has changed to one of the most brilliant promise. From a desponding position, in the possession of 600, 000 idle blacks, she has 4, 000, 000, whose labor is inadequate to the production of that staple which the civilised world demands from her fertile soil. The blacks themselves have been gradually elevated in material comforts and religious sentiment - not only far above those of any other country, but greatly and progressively above their own former condition. And this is comprehended in the material fact, that their value, which was 200 by assessment in 1790, is 550 in 1858. From a market value of 250, they have risen to 1500 and 2000. This simple fact alone would show not only the great value that their labor is to the Christian world, but that their owners have thus, as it were, come under bonds in the sum of 1200 and 1800 each hand, to give them the best moral and material care.
