(1) Samuel Hopkins speaks boldly and publicly against
slavery—the A. C. S. excuses it. (2) He mentions the
wrong which the colored people were suffering, throwing
the guilt where it rested upon the whites!—the A. C. S.
attaches the guilt to the suffering colored people, and ex¬
cuses the whites who are the actual criminals. (3) S. H.
is moved by the wishes of the sufferers themselves—the A.
C. S. is acting in direct and open violation of the almost
universal wishes of the sufferers. (4) Most of the colored
people spoken of by S. H. were Africans themselves, or,
had still relations and acquaintances in Africa, and retained
the languages of that country!—the colored people, about
whom the A. C. S. busy themselves, are almost universally
Americans, and know nothing of the languages of Africa.
(5) S. H. speaks of his proteges, in the most respectful
and affectionate terms—the A. C. S. slander most grossly
and cruelly the pretended objects of their benevolence.
(6) S. H. speaks of his poor, as already qualified by prin¬
ciples and habits long established, and by attainments al¬
ready made, to be a blessing to Africa—the A. C. S. speaks
of theirs, as about to be transmuted by passing the Atlantic,
from semi-devils to semi-angels, to more than men! in the
United States, unfit to be allowed to remain in their native
country ! but in Africa, above all human influences, uncor-
rupt and incorruptible ;. such men and women as the world
has never seen ; as the United States, with all its real
glory, and with all its cruel boasts, has not! (7) Granville
Sharp in his reply, bids the strangers welcome, but allures
them by no fairy tales of Sierra Leone—the A. C. S. made
Liberia as much and as long as it could, a little paradise.
(8) Both G. S. and S. H. were evidently the ministers and
servants in love for Christ's sake, of the people of their
care—the A. C. S. takes sides with their slanderers and
oppressors, and spurns them with all the benevolence of aris¬
tocratic jiride from their native country. Can darkness
and light—can right and wrong be more opposite. If any
one ask for my authorities, I refer them to the Annual
Reports and to the African Repositories of the American
Colonization Society, and to Judge Jay's admirable book;
