5822. NEGROES, Racial differences.—

It will probably be asked, why not retain and
incorporate the blacks into the State, and thus
save the expense of supplying by importation of
white settlers, the vacancies they will leave?
Deep-rooted prejudices entertained by the
whites; ten thousand recollections, by the
blacks, of the injuries they have sustained;
new provocations; the real distinctions which
new provocations; the real distinctions which
nature has made; and many other circumstances
will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions,
which will probably never end but in
the extermination of the one or the other race.—
