ABOLITIONISM UNVEILED. "Mav Heaven's choice blessings, my dear David," rejoined the 'Squire, " rest upon thy head. Thou bast journeyed with me, and participated in my perils. And here, alas! we must part." Now, kind reader, whoever thou art, what parting word must I uitter I can but implore thee to remember the value of the deposit left in thy hands-the liberty of thy country. Upon thee its preservation partly depends; and when years shall have rolled away, "may these States be one and inseparable." May the stars that float on our flag, not wane or diminish, but go on to increase in num- ber, and shine with brighter effulgence " until the consum- mation of all things." CHAPTER XXXIV. Conclusion. NOT intending to publish hereafter a KEY to the pre- ceding work, the Author will, in conclusion, observe, that he has aimed to give the influence of Abolitionism on the slave population in the border counties, in Kentucky, fairly and fully. At the same time a few slaves have made their escape to parts unknown, great numbers have been sold and transported farther South. In this aspect, Abolitionism has been a curse instead of a benefit to the negroes. The mobiem manifested by the negroes in Canada to the citizens of the South, is not a fiction but a reality, as many can testify. A charge has been brought against the Abolitionists, in the body of the work, of electing men to office with a view of defeating the operations of the Fugitive Slave Law. In confirmation of that charge, the Author will submit the following resolution, adopted by a Convention held in Lake Connty, Ohio: "Resolved-That our delegates are hereby instructed to vote for no man, for the office of District Judge, who is not opposed to the Fugitive Slave Law, on constitutional grounds, and who will not by writ of habeas corpus, inter- pose the authority of the State against its execution." 250
