St. Clare doesn't report the murder because he has no right to interfere in another slaveowner's treatment of their slaves. In this chapter, we are given a detailed looked about the reasons St. Clare DOES take care of his slaves and gives them a certain amount of personal freedom. He does not approve of slavery.
