balance against the South in favor of the North of seventeen
million four hundred and twenty-three thousand one hundred and
fiftytwo bushels, and a difference in the value of the same,
also in favor of the North, of forty-four million seven hundred
and eighty-two thousand six hundred and thirty-six dollars. It
is certainly a most novel kind of agricultural superiority
that the South claims on that score !

Our attention shall now be directed to the twelve prin-
cipal pound-measure products of the free and of the slave
States-hay, cotton, butter and cheese, tobacco, cane, su-
gar, wool, rice, hemp, maple sugar, beeswax and honey,
flax, and hops — and in taking an account of them, we
shall, in order to show the exact quantity produced in
each State, and for the convenience of future reference,
pursue the same plan as that adopted in the preceding
tables. Whether slavery will appear to better advantage
on the scales than it did in the half-bushel, remains to be
seen. It is possible that the rickety monster may make a
better show on a new track ; if it makes a more ridiculous
display, we shall not be surprised. A careful examina-
tion of its precedents, has taught us the folly of expecting
anything good to issue from it in any manner whatever.
It has no disposition to emulate the magnanimity of its
betters, and as for a laudable ambition to excel, that is a
characteristic altogether foreign to its nature. Languor
and inertia are the insalutary viands upon which it de-
lights to satiate its morbid appetite ; and " from bad to
worse” is the ill-omened motto under which, in all its fee-
ble efforts and achievements, it ekes out a most miserable
and deleterious existence.
