‘Pro Slavery Paper’ in England

‘Pro Slavery Paper’ in England.  The Day Book publishes the prospectus of an English newspaper, to be called ‘Manchester Cotton Press,’ the first number of which will make its appearance in November next.  It is intended to represent the cotton interest, of which Great Britain is the center, and is established by gentlemen connected with the various branches of the cotton trade.  It will also discuss the negro question and ‘the nature of the negro, and investigate the laws of his wise and humane government, without relation to the abstract theories of Mr. Wilberforce and of Exeter Hall on the one hand, or to the extreme and brutal ideas of the Cuban planters on the other.’
