THE HORRID EFFECTS OF NEGRO SLA VER Y In one of the early debates in the reformed House of Commons, on the slave emancipation question, some of our readers may perhaps rT-member the outpourings of the Lord Viscount Howick's indignation against the proprietor and managers of a particular estate in Demerara, whose conduct towards the" unhappy blacks" was described in the stereotyped phrases of the Anti-slavery Association, as diabolical, cruel, &c.- &c. &c. &c. and that such conduct would effectually destroy the uegro population of this estate in particular. The arrival of the Indian Chief, Cap- tain Williams, from Demerara, has supplied us with an ex- cellent commentary On his lordship's harangue, in the shape of an order from one of the ill used, and therefore unhappy slaves belonging to the very estate that was the theme of his lordship's discourse. The order is in the baud-writing of the slave, wliich we copy verbatim et Ii. teratim :— MEMORANDUM FOR CAPTAIN WILLIAMS. A blue dross coat, second quality. 7 stiings of large coral^beads. 7 pair earrings, a little larger than the pattern, and a fellow for the pattern. I piece cotton cambric. b pieces calico gown piece. S lockets" ladic-s,) 3 strings black garnet beads. I piece cointlion White drill. -4 piece coarse linen for shirting. V) r. aud Airs. Vincent's compliments to Mr. Williams and wishes him success and a happy passage home, and they hope you will not forget theui. P.S.—A blue dress coat for my brother, to be a size larger." This order was given oy a slave who )S neither a driver nor a manager one who is employed exclusively in out- of-door worn 011 the plantation. The funds to purchase these articles were supplied by an order on the agent of the estate. The pattern GOLD .earring and pendant together with the paper which we have described may b ith be seen by any person who will take the trouble of calling on the publisher of the LiverpoullStanrtard, in whose possession they are. We have only to add that we have great pleasure in exhibiting this irrefragable proofuf the cruel and inhuman treatment of the West India slaves. -Liverpool Standard.
