SPEECH OF THE HO.\. .J. R. KWIJKII, On the subject of prohibiting free Negroes fromemigrating to California. Mr. Chairman : —I am constrained to make a few remarks in regard to the matter now under discussion. 1 oppose the introduction of free negroes, from a matter of principle, not from u feeling of dislike to the race. 1 know that the state of affairs here will dniw a large number (if negroes into this country, provided thev are not excluded. What are the evils resulting from it! There is one of vast importance and of sufficient magnitude to swallow up all others; the hare contemplation of it for one moment would convince any person I have already stated that the negro and white man cannot associate in their labours. particularly in this country, and the privilege of admitting free negroes. 1 consider a greater injury than admitting slaves. We want neither free men nor slaves of that particular dy>e in California. Let us make u calculation about the matter, for the yan...
