people of Mexico, but a handsome one, and that the true condition of these two countries would warrant a reverse of these terms; that they are in either, eo nomine, arbitrary. Let us look into the mines and manufactories of European countries - let us go among their destitute millions - let us look into the workshops and factories of our own free North, and compare their condition - we are forced to believe that the liberty of the former is a delusion, while the slavery of the latter is the better condition.
From these condensed reasons, it is plain to my  mind that no circumstances can ever occur which will allow the abolition of slavery throughout the United States, and permit the manumitted slaves to an equal participation either in the rights of domicil or citizenship. It is equally clear, that while it is not the will of those interested at present to allow it, yet, if it were, neither individuals nor government have the means either of purchasing or transporting this population to Africa. If, then, no such means at present exist, how much better able would government be at the end of twenty-five years, when the amount required would be doubled, and at fifty years, when it would be quadrupled? It is a reasonable calculation, that at the end of fifty years the coloured population of the United States will exceed twelve millions; and, estimating their then value by their average value for the last fifty years, with the cost of transporting them to Africa, it would exceed the national debt of Great Britain, or three times the amount of every specie dollar in circulation throughout Christendom, and would require all the navies of Great Britain, France, Russia, and the United States twelve years to transport them, allowing each vessel to make three trips per annum, and carry three hundred souls each over and above their own complement of men.
If we look to what most certainly will be the aggregate of this population within the lifetime of many of our children now born, and estimating that aggregate by their average increase for the last fifty  years, we conclude that the generation now coming upon the stage will see the monstrous whole of twenty millions. To the political philanthropist, who may reasonably calculate many changes of interest and policy, which may by this time spring up between the master and these probable unprofitable millions, his mind should seek to provide for them against a destiny so impending. A sure and certain provision is in the reach of the politicians of that country. It requires boldness to avow it, but that boldness is based upon the great necessity of the case, and, as such, the justice of nations will acquiesce in the measure. To provide these existing and forthcoming millions with a country accessible, and a climate suitable to that physical constitution which the great Author of the universe has given them, our southern boundary should extend to the twentieth degree of north latitude, and nearly all will be accomplished which human wisdom can provide. Here is a country in soil, climate, and every other consideration far superior to
