From error so notorious, from pohMcal profligacy so glaring, and from inconsistency so conspicuous and so great, what favour and what justice, ivofonists, let me ask, can you or are you to expect or to receive ?

They intend to complete this object at an early day; but the time wlicii, and the manner how, is to be left to them, not to yoo, to determine. Do not deceive yourselves. These are their steady objects. They believe, and honestly and sincei^lv, I presume, they believe, that they can, if you will only obey their commandments, the object, not only •n safety, and without any loss, but absolutely with great advantage unto you Colonists • It is in this state of things— in this state, When dangers of no common kind, and of the most pressing nature collect around you, that your friends in this country have urgently required of the government, an enquiry before the House of Pc>ers, into the state and condition of your slave population, and the state of severe and unprecedented distress into which, as the Duke of Wellington pt^rtinently observed, you have been pluneed bv a long course of neglect and misfortune." This enquiry, so reasonable and so necessary in itself, bos nevertheless been granted with reluctance by the covernment. L,ord Goderich deprecated, and wa^ decidedly opposed to It, msinuaiing that it must terminate lo your disadvantage. Enquiry iDust expose the errors and blunders, to rive these no harsher names, of the office over which His i S^$ M^f)unm mvmrn* '•• — fci l -W i i T n il L i nffiin ini^ Ihe state ot the case, we ail know what mighty nMlinery the government of this country, without an vtxtril auxiliary assistance, can put in motion, to neutraiilii, or to crush any proceeding to which they are hostile, aiui every investigation which goes, or would go, to criminate them, or to expose their ignorance. Aware of this oppoiition, sou must bo prepared ate\ery point to meet, to answer] and to beat it. Colonists! The enquiry sought, and the enquiry obtained, is of great importance. If properly condticted, it will .!o >ou the greatest service ; but if improperly managed, it will be productive of the greatest mischirf'. It will terminate in your future weal, or in vour future woe. You have sought, and you have chosen h. It if, therefore, your dernier resort ; your properties and your liberties are def>endent upr, or preserved and protected from future and continued destructive innovations, it is quite imfwissible for you to oxwt; and. unless you can, by the complete exposure of all the falsehoods of your foes, put an end to the endless system of unnecessary and dangerous Earopean Icgis'ation which these falsehoods ca!l forth, you never can, and you never will enjoy, cither in person or propertv,' r^^are, repose, or safety ; while the want of these will ^!!!r' ^"** ''at speedily, too, ruin as complete and irrci;^tdiable upon you, as if it were precipitate by insurrec'•on and conflagration, kindled by the hand's of your laves. Colonists Be wise, be prudent, be firm Yield up "(J surrender your rights, as British subjects, lo brute ^••ce alone, if it comes to be employed a-^ainst voo. but levolence of your enemies, and llie errors and weakness of your government, can do you no fuither injury than these have already done. Tliey cannot render your situation more dangerous, or more iaaecure ; nor your property the more unproductive and iiwre valueless, thin it is. Your country cannoi now wound you without inflicting a more aerious wound upon herself. Bear in mind abo how much and how often opportunities to do you effectual service have been lost by the misuitknogement of your affairs in this country, and not let the present important opportunity be lost ; but. by the utmost diligence and uctivity on your parts, secure your future repose and tranquillity. You are at present undermined every day by Anti-Colonial minions, who aie placeoiiited lo entjuire into that case, (and you can only fail by tho grossest negligence on the part of yourselves and your friends,) then you may rely on the fact, that in future you will only have Ami-Colonial authorities, in every de-ree, planted amongst you. and placed over you— men who. like these monsters in Civil Government, Protectors, can only secure their places, and a continuance of grace and favour by trampling you m the dust, and rendering you. as you are now souglit to be rendered, b.ggars— slaves to your slaves, and personal bondsmen— goods and chattels to >our misled, stultified, and ungiateful countrymen, who think, because they are able to ruin and degrade you, that they can raise the barbarous and lazy Africans, not barbarised by you certainly, in the scale of civilization, to a point equal to the enlightened and industrious natives of Europe Cohmists You must tell, and you must show to the House of Peers, that the .\fiican slaves whicli you purchased from your countrymen, and their progeny, are your private properly, in absolute right. They are and they have been constituted such b> all the acts of the legislature, and by all the decisions of tho Courts of Justice of your country, during a p<'rioil of two hundred years ; and having been so. you require that, if they are to be taken from you for any purpose, or for any reason, they must be paid fo i by the nation— vou, as a portion of that nation bearini; yerty. in absolute right, plant your fiM>t. From this firm stand do not argue the question settled and immutable as the laws of Great Britain. Keep the (iovernment and the legislature to this point. Leave them to combat the Anti-Colonists in any way they may think proj)er. Enter into no details on the subject. Your enemies wish to entangle you in tho snares of discussion, regarding the asserted advantage, the policy, and the justice of emancipation, well kntiwing that, it"' they iret you to descend to this, they got you lo relinquish your pr(perty m absolute right, and which done, they bring you from your strong hold tacitly to acknowh-dge their right and the right of the government, to interfere with, to cut and to carve upon, and to legislate for you and for your property, as they may think necessary or convenient. In such a slate, it is scarcely necessary to observe, you are wholly defenceless. You have no chanrp of receiving justice under any circuinstanre, more csperially under the hue ;.nd cry which ignorance and euiliusiasm have raised against you. Cut di>russion short. This is our property. Here arc the British laws which make it so. This was its value.

It is not, therefore, my Lord, religious instruction that the colonists oppose. Mr. Blvth sets that point at rest, at once and lorever, and a more monstrous stretch of arbitrary power cannot Wfll he conceived, than to find the Colonial Secretary of Great Britain stepping forward to command almost the exclusive employment of sectarians (I use the term without any olfensive meaning) to bestow ro)i|{iatis instruction on the slaves. Jlven on this momentous subfectv like orherr<^ mingr luipurt, the muster, it appeals, is not to be allowed to fudi^e, or to interfere. So says tho British Government : that ^'overnnuut which has left the emancipated negroes in Trinid.ul, formcily belonging to the West India regiments, the creatures of its hand, and the work ol its potver, without reliL'ious instruction, 01 iostructors of any description ; till iliey are again become so;>fl^rtMiSfr/, as to be cutting and carving pieces of 'imber into the figures of oouh, before whom they bend down and worship!! When General Grant laid the melancholy state of these people before the Colo lial Ofiice some months ago, he was requested to be quiet, and to say nothing about it so much for Taylor and Co.'s attention and anxiety to bestow religious instruction upon their black population ! The West ludM Colonics are particularly accused of profaning the Sabbath, by following worldly pursuits. 1 do not justify or extenuate those where they are lollowed, but romark, that the Anti-slavery Reporter may find eipjal profanation of the Sabbath goiuL' on every day under his own eyes in London and its oeijjlibourhood, where shops aio open, selling every thing eatable, diinkable, and wearable. At a meeting of tho Magistrates of Queen's Scpiare, [see Louilon Courier, "JA September,] a number of butchers and bakers were fined for selling articles on Sunday. They defended themselves by stJtingthat the practice was unive sal, — that it would hfi impossible to pay their rent andtates irithout so doing ;" iliai chcy '* took more money on Sunday morning than on any other day,'' because ** the poor people would n to reduce the master and his family to absoluie beggary and despair, but by every puUWc act and proceeding to debase him in his own eyes, and to degrade him in the eyes of his barbarous uependent>, and of the whole human race Great Britain believes, and acts upon the belief, that the African savape whom she has transported from Africa to the islands in tin* (iulf of Mexico, has deteriorated, and is deteriorating, u'ider thes\slem of per^ional bondage in which he is placed. A moment's enquiry would tend to sIk?w to the most ignorant and most prejudiced, '|lbat the fact is just the reverse. Great Britain, boweveis uill not believe the truth ; she IcLMslaies in obstin4te ignorance thereof, and consequently, she legislates wrong. Such conduct is worse than insanity. ^It cart only produce mischief; it can only drive back the stave |n to a state of barbarism, and it must, if further actod upon, produce the destruction of c'lr colonies, and the consequent humilialion of our country, and dismemberment of our enmirr. I am one of those, my Lord, who from experience know how greatly those feeliuL'S of afiection and resbett for our native cointry arc increased by being removed to the distance of many thousand miles from it, and to lle KHiiiiiiHmSi WSt mmmmmmsmm The immediate inlerierence of government can alone prevent this tremendous catastroplie. Government must tell this misled country, that tho West India colonists have been unjustly accused ; they must tell this country that West India pro{H}rty, like (*.very other properly in tho empire, must be protected and rendered productive : they must tell this country that the West India colonists are British subjects ; that while they remain such, they must betreaied as such, and protected as such ; an auli-colonijis make. It is 1 fact, ejually unrleniahle, that whenever any document which is sent fioni the colonies, partial and imperfect as many of tliese are, is deman.led by tho antiCfdonists, that the same is realily prtwlucod j while, a|. most every docuiiUMit that conu-s from the colonies however perfect it may be, which gor lo reOito the calumnies and fahehoods advanced by tho i iti-colunists, and to oppose tho particular theories which government hold on colonial subjects— when demanded, is most difficult to bo procured, or frequently withhrld, and when produced, is frequently produced in a garbhd and mutilated slate. Kvery one about the Colonial Office is acquainted with these facts. It would be very easy for me to name documents that have been withheld or garbled; but to enter into the detail of such matters, would greatly exceed my limits. It is, moreover, painful to bo conipclhd to observe, that scarcely in one sing!*' instance does any menibei of government, at any liuio when the ai.ti-colonists pour forth their falsehoods and inisrepretentaiions in parliament, come foru ard lo contradict them, as in duty they are bound to do ; nor do the cover nm-nt, when tho' anticolonial periodical press is spreading its fals.; arnii^ation'i and venom over th^ land, ever attempt to arrest the march of the pernicious system, by stating the trutii through the preu (a murder, a hanging-match, or cock-f.^^f, are r important subjects!) under its influence and controol ; on the contrary, government continually leans il tho anticolonial side. Under these circumstances the defenceless colonists must think that they are despised by tlie mother country, and deserted by the government ; and that while their ru'in IS pursued by the former, it is, to say the least of it, con^'Mted to by the latter. F.very order und every communication that is transmitted frMm Downing Strertn^ and anii-coioniai midst ot new scenes and things; but in proportion as '^^"cour, and tend< to humiliate and to abase the master those feelings are strengtliened by such a separation, so ^" * m<'''5"es adopted by government, arc founded upon deen and so Kivnnrr aill iho ho I., iV,^ I ^e the erroncous and injurioos notion, that it is impossible to be at the same time a colonist and a human man a colonist and a just man — or a colonist and a good man. It is impossible to conceive any state more degrading or debasing than this. The cxp< riencc of all a^t-s ha> shewn lo mankind, that the individual ul.o are locally and intimately acquainted with the society and institutions of n country, are the fittest persons to legidato for that country ; andev^ry day eoos to shew Great Britain, that sho cannot safely l^i*iate for possessions so many thousand miles distant from li^r, and with the particular interests, the habit*, the character, and ile piirsiHls of il^g population of which sho is ignorant and unacquainto#l. The anti-colonist demand and act upon measures of proscription. Governnwnl has been compelled to vieW to their views. Every new law is conscquenllf siarnpcd with a character which wounds, which humiliates and, in deep and so strong will the resentment be in the lnaitt of chihlren, when they find that the parent pursues a reckless cold-blooded (oiirse, which must, by precipitating destruction, burst asunder these lies. In no civilized community, but more es(>ecially in a British community, can, or oucht, men for ever to submit lo bo calumniated, reviled, and persecuted. In commerce, and in politics, it is Impossible that matters in the Colonics can goon longer without most fata' results. The consequences to this country will be throwing altoeelhcr aside the probable destruction of human life, the i.oss op oxk hunored and portv millions 8T' RLiNO of British capital, and property, vested in and serured over these colnnio*. The shock which this loss will occasion to this country, this country, great as it is could not poHsilily sustain. Its i'uracdiate effects would cover towns and districts with poverty and distress,Mind its more remote effects would shake to their foundations her other strongest colomil and internal commercial establishfine, which drives tbo colonists to despair. • Thus the nr <^rn tooncil, sent out last year lelf the government f
