Opis: Journal of the Statistical Society of London, Vol. 20 (Classic Reprint) - Society Royal Statistical

Excerpt from Journal of the Statistical Society of London, Vol. 20

The following statement has been drawn up with the purpose of displaying, as clearly as may be, the actual relation, at the present moment, of the slave system of tho United States to the cotton manufactures of the United Kingdom. It has no political object, other than that of averting such misconception as often leads to mistaken action; and that in a matter in which to act with perfect discretion may possibly not, when the time for action comes, be found extremely easy; but in which any serious error on our part would probably be visited, in the natural course of things, with very heavy and widely-felt penalties. It is based entirely upon public documents, and other well-known authorities. It is not intended to support, or to oppose, either slavery in general, or any particular form of it. Its sole purpose is, to show how far we, as a nation, are implicated in the pending dispute. And this will be done simply by bringing together, under one view, facts already well established, placing them together in logical sequence, and stating the conclusions to which, being so placed, they have conducted myself.

After mature consideration, I deduce from the materials now before me, and which I am about to lay before you, the conclusions: -

I. That, in the present state of tho commercial relations of the two countries, the cotton-planters of the United States are interested, to the extent of about two-thirds of their exportable produce, in the maintenance of the cotton manufacture of the United Kingdom - and,

II. That, reciprocally, the cotton-manufacturers of the United Kingdom, and, through them, the entire population of the kingdom, are interested, to the extent of four-fifths of the raw material of that manufacture, in the existing arrangements for maintaining the cotton culture of the United States.

These conclusions I base on the following propositions: -

1. That cotton must be grown, almost entirely, out of Europe, and manufactured chiefly in Europe; and, in Europe, chiefly in Great Britain.
