Men with their families, wiYes,sons and daugh ters, work for themselves on their larm, in their houses, and in their shops, taking the whole product to themselves, and asking no favors of capital on the one hand, nor of hired laborers or slaves on the other. It is not for gotten that a considerable number of persons mingle their own labor with their capital that is, they labor with their own hands, and also buy or hire others to labor for them ; but this is only a mixed, and not a distinct class. No principle stated is disturbed by tbe exist ence of this mixed class. Again, as has already been said, there is not of necessity any snch thing as the free hired laborer being fixed to that condition lor lite. Many independent men, everywhere in these States, a few years back in their lives, were hired laborers. . The prudent, penniless beginner in this world, labors for wages awhile, saves a surplus with which to buy tools or lan...
