'It has been observed, " You cannot object to a loan on West Indian security; for you contend that its value will be improved by emancipation." I admit that we do so; but it must be emancipaton on our own terms. It must be total and immediate; no longer deferred than till an efficient police can be established. It must not be a partial diluted measure, breaking up one relation of the parties, to substitute another of equal hardship and more difficult operation. This is unsettling one system, which, bad as it is, can work, and replacing it with another, with such a jumble of bad and good, that it becomes inoperative as a stimulus to labour, though it retains the cruel coercive principle. We must not be fixed with an indemnity against a risk essentially different from that which we proposed. It is what the underwriters call a deviation from the policy: of course it discharges our liability.'
We could have wished that the zeal of " Legion" had been somewhat more tempered by courtesy. Such language and such reasoning as we meet with at pp. 21, 22, are unworthy of the cause, and more adapted to give pain and just offence than to convince. The warmth of the Writer's feelings does him honour, but his judgement should hold a tighter rein.
