The authorities upon the subject are numerous and were read by Mr. Smith in the Senate of the United States, in his Speech upon the “Bill for recovering fugitive slaves from labor.” “We all know,” said Mr. Smith, “that Ham sinned against his God and against his father, for which, Noah, the inspired patriarch, cursed Canaan, the son of Ham, and said “a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.” Newton, who was perhaps as great a Divine as any in New-England, and as pro found a scholar, in a book of great celebrity, called his Prophecies, in which he endeavors to prove the divinity of the bible, by the many prophecies that are now fulfilling, says that this very African race are the descendants of Canaan, and have been the slaves of various nations, and are still expiating, in bondage, the curse upon themselves and their progenitors.
