We can, at least, force an adjostrn- m tnt ioithout her admission. Tms being done, w# are safe. The southern States, in convention a t NashTiUe will devise means for vindicating their rights. I do not know what these means teill be, b u t I know what they may bo with propriety and safety. They may be to carry slaves into a ll of southern Cm- ifomia, as the property of sovereign States, and there hold them, as we have a right to d o ; and, if molested, ddiend them, as is both our right and duty. “ W e ask yen to give us our rights by ron - inter - VENTION, if you refuse, I am for taking them by ARMF.n OCC0PATION, issue is made on-interfereuco dissoiu- in rebellion, when every tongi tioe or give us death.” “ Go home and tell your people up, they must now choose between ____ with southern rights on tbe one side, and tion of the Union on tho other. “ If you fancy t h a t our devotion to the Union will keep us in the Union, you are mistaken. Our love for the Union ceases with the justice of the Union. W e onjinotloyo oppreEsipn, nor hug tyranny to our bosoms.” “ I tell you of tho Union. they resisted tyranny. British orators were eloquent in their eulo- gioms on tho British crown. Our fathers felt the op­ pression, they saw the hand that aimed tbe blow, and resolved to resist. The result in before the world.- We will resist, and trust to God and our own stoi hearts for tho oonseqnencos.” “ The South afraid of dissolving the Union !—why should wo fear 1 W h at is there to alarm us or Awaken our apprehensions 1 Are we not able lu mainittin oursotvea T feball eight millioQS of freemen, with more than ono hnmlrea millions of annual exports, fear to take ikdir {losition amoug ikd n&tioftS of thfi earth 1 With our cotton, sugar, rico, and products of a southern soil, yielding us annual! than a huodred millioDs of dollars, need we f< frowns of tho world V* •• Have we any roson to fear a dissolution of tho Union '?

But if you should, we point you to tho record of the past, and warn you, by its blood- stainod pages, that wo shall bo ready to meet you.” These extracts from the speech of tbe gontlemi from Mississippi [Mr. B rown ] are suffioient for o present purpose. The gentleman from N. Carolina, [Mr. C i . i « gman . ,] tells us \uliat is the vieto presented w prospect to many of the highest intellects of the South,” and it is substan- . .L,. .L - . ---------------‘1 Confederacy the Slav* 1 as much as the Unit e up to tho beginning , and still have on hai ____ __________ ______ to devote to tho makiL„ railroads, opening harbors ^and rivers, and for other domestic purposes ” - IT e same gentleman has thus disposed, m advance, of some little matters pertaining to tho interior regulations of tho “ southern oonfode- raoy” to be : “ I h o northern tier of counties in Ren- tucky,” says he, “ would perhaps be obliged to re­ move their slaves to the South. But there would bo to her advantages in the change similar to those of Maryland. Kentucky supplies the South with live stock to a great e x tent; b u t she has to encounter the competition of Ohio and other northwestern States. I f the production of these Statesmere subject to a duty, she might for a while ha)re a monopoly in the trade.” 1 doubt not, sir, that it Will astonish the people of tbe great W est and Northwest to find that the fathers of tho “ southern confederacy” have disposed of the na­ vigation of the Mississippi with such celerity, as much as it will tbe people of Kentucky to loara that their slaves ore henceforth to be removed South— instead o f North. The same gentleman [Mr. C lino - uan I has divulged his plan for removing—thouah not quite so gently—all those in Kentucky and the other elaveholdin^ States who hesitate about swearing allo- gianee to this “ soutborn confederacy ” He intimates that it will not take as long to hang them as it did tho “ Tories in tho Revolution.” I think, Mr. Chairman, that I have now given ex­ tracts enough to justify the opinion I expressed a t the outset of my remarks. W e cannot fail to see that if feelings, purposes, and intentions of the peop! slave holding states are correctly represente io speeches, our countrymen may well apprel the most fearful calamities. Tbe subject nas been calmly considered in all its aspects by the highest in ­ tellects of the South. It has been ascertained b y oal- oulation, that if tbe Sonthem States were separated from tho Northern, n ot only would they escape from \ Northern aggression” in future, b u t they would al­ so derive a dirooti pconniary advantage of $25,000,- 000 per annum. And though it does not appear that he amount o£ d a tj to be paid by the people of the W est and Northwest to tfie “ Southern confederacy” for the pririlego of navigating the Mississippi river has y et been axed, it nevertbeless does appear that such a dnty is to be exacted. I allude to those things sir, to show the minute calculations that have been entered into in reference to the altered condition of things consequent upon tbe.meditatod dissolution of the Union._ They show an advanced stage in tho pro­ gress of this movement, which, in my judgment, will astound tho country. Now. air, lot us see if we can glean from these gen­ tlem ens speeches the shadowing forth of any plan by which this movement is to be commenced and oarried out. I ficst quote from tho speech of the from Alabama, (M r.

Pioture to yourselves Hungary, resisting the powers of Austria and Russia ; and R Hungary, wbiok had never tasted liberty, could make such stout resistance, what may you nol anticipate from eight millions of Southrons made des­ perate by your aggression 2” Do you know, Mr. Chairman, of any a cts commit­ ted or meditated by the North against tho people of the slaveholdlng ytatos, that can hy any possibility justil'y such dcelarations as those I have quoted 1 I know of none, and 1 am rare the gentleman from Mississippi will find it veiy difficult to point them out to his constituents. It is easy, indeed, to deal in ge­ neral charges against the North, and when roq^uosted to specify those charges, to say, as the honorable gen­ tleman from Mississlpp’ ’ho story of our wrongs, people, patriotic, intell _ developments will show. And what, sir, aro tho causes assigned to justify tho act of dissolving this Union 7 They are alleged aggressions by the non-elaveholdlzig States upon the rights of the Slaveholding, in rCSpeet to slavery. AU the charges put forth against the non-slaveholding States have reference to that question solely; and they are all comprised and compendiously set forth in a single brief sentence which 1 here quote from the speech before referred to or the gentleman from North Carolina, [Mr. C lino . man ] After referring a t some length t9 fb« benefits and adrantngee e f elareiy, be course of the free States been “ constantly aggres- this number, nine are slaveholding States, and eight of tho Constitution is considerably more than twice as great as that of the free territory. Does this look like a disposition on the part of the free States to pursue a course of “ constant aggression ” towards the South on the subject of slavery 2 A gain: The annexation of Texas was a peouliarly Southern measure. The necessity of its acquisition was distinctly placed by Mr. C auhoun — himself the embodiment of ultra Sonthem principles, and the master-spirit of the then Administration—npon the wants of slavery. To the North the measure was dis­ tasteful. The North never desired, for its own sake, the acquisition of T e x a s; nevertheless, the South earnestly desiring it, and Mr. C alhoun ’ s great in­ fluence being brought to boar in its favor, for the reogon ohlely, just given, the North generously ac­ quiesced in the measure, though possessed of ample power to defeat it. Texas was acquired—and, a t tho cost of a sanguinary a nd expensive war, we took into Union, a t one swoop, an amount of slave territory our southern ____ the other bos been those places. Even ;ion in tl day in any of ^ve_ their oo- abollshed to i slave-dealers OUpatiOr Il-la -.I aoc .,.- North, 1 slavery ___ ere this 2 She has ance any part of the “ aggression ” unon Slavs which now justifies rebellion against tbe Union 1 Now, sir, lei us consider those minor charges, SO pertinaoiously urged against the free States, that nmke up tho sum total of those “ aggressions” whirii justify these gentlemen in dissolving the Union. W h at are these charges 2 W hy, it is charged, first, that among the people of the free States there is tt preva­ lent and increasing feeling adverse to slavery. This statement,or charge t f ilb o one, 1 cannot deny. But 1 am a t a loss to conceive how that can be regarded as an “ aggression” upon the South, or a justification for the a ct of overtm-owing this Government. Is it required of the free States that they, in aggregate, Bhall keep a supervision over the- views and opiuioni of their individual oitizeus on political, moral or any other subjects 2 Is not this a country of freedom of opinion 2 And do not our soutbem iriends, even, re­ cognize the principle that “ error of opinion may be safely tolerated where reason is left free to combat ow, gentlei . these things—^this feeling, o else you may call i t —oven aj islave-iiolding States, can y< iment, or wna the peo|^e of ________ loiw.tiSnVts’ffe i we to try 2 W hy, on th ’u point wo have th e autheri- ky of the gentleman from, Mississippi (M r.

S o ytra did, by violenee. But, by your own laws and the decisions of yonr own courts, you were punished for it. You were oompelled to make coumensation in damages for your lawless a ct.

But somehow o r other I could itgfeslislp but think that on th a t co«asiop,th^^w e tp--[rtth« ^ “ a litti, g „ ^ £ : $ 9 ^ ^ a a five have been g i m 10 the South. How io i t a t thie. m f - S '? \ w “ t . s a tnia miHioa oE ipra very moment, sir while these very complaints of out­ rage, iusults, tyranny, and loss of office p e being made 2 W hy, sir, tho President—a majority of the Cabinet—a majority c four foreign minister^— a ma­ jority of the members of the Supreme Court, and the- presiding officer and clerk of this House—are southern men and slaveholders. Does not this satisfy the gen­ tleman from North Carolina 2 Surely ho might, on this subject, restqiiite easy. Another oiffieulty gravely set forth in that gentleman’s speech I ought,rperhapB, to notice with becoming seriousness. I allude to the re­ fusal of tho New E n ^ a n d spinster to take the southern gentleman’s a rm ! T h a t was wrong, unquestionably. Bnt then, these Yankee girls are very independent, id will do just as they please—as some of us have aroed from tqtj painful pereoual experience. But 1 do not thiTite that a dissolution of ttio Union need to ^ellew as a necessary li is a proper SuK< jeot for negotiation. And a$ the lady cannot fail to perceive by ibis time that sbe is in danger of becom­ ing a second Helen, she will doubtless be more yield- Another charge against the free States to that of aiding fugitive slaves to make their escape. T h a t we have vicious people as well as deluded people among us, we do not deny ; and that they have aided slaves to elude the pursuit of their owners, is, I regret to say, more than probable. Such acts are not inoonsonanoe with the spirit of our Constitution, and they tend di­ rectly to destroy that good neighborhood among the people and the Btates of this Union, which every true­ hearted American desires to oultivate. They are acts, against the constitution and for the punishment of which the General Government ought to provide. 1 hope such provision will be made before the aiose of this session. It need not bia expected, however, th a t any human laws, however rigidly enforced, will whol­ ly feillBllj tDlfi BDl. Thfiroaro Dad men in all com­ munities—in the North as well as tho South—-and one unprincipled man, by entifnng away or aiding the es­ cape of a slave, may bring reproaches upon a whole State. I am confident, however, that the nnmbgr of sneh men in the free States is very greatly 'overesti­ mated by gentlemen from the South. They should remember that it takes b ut very few men to occasioii all the annoyance they • have suffered in thto re­ spect. They should remember, too, that these things are done secretly, and are by no means conntonano- ed by the mass of the people. For my own part, 1 am ready to go any reasonable length to secure such legislation as will henceforth prevent, as far as possible, this grievance. I desire to see a law en­ acted this present session, which shail seonro to you, as far as pta iticable, your rights in thto respect. The slaves are your own property; reeqgnizod as suob by that constitution, every line and every intend­ ment of which I hold sacred. But let mo ask gen­ tlemen if they^have not negro stealers i n f their own States, if they have not every variety of unprincipled characters among them 1 N either they nor we can free our respective States from such m e n ; and they should consider whether, if things were reversed— they occupying our position and we theirs—they would be likely to keep themselves freer from just re­ proach than we have done. I am not so unmindful of truth as to deny that, in respect to the subject now under consideration, some of our Southern friends have good cause to complain. Bnt it must have been remarked by all of us that the Represen­ tatives from those States which have really been ag­ grieved in thto respect are not those who have thread­ ed us with disunion. Those threats have come from the Representatives of States from which, I venture to say, on an average not one slave escapes in five years. Whoever heard of a slave escaping from Mis­ sissippi or Alabama 2 Where does he go to 2 W hi helps him away 2 Certainly not the pepple of thi North. Kentucky, Virgmia, Maryland and Missouri the only States that are really sufferers by the escapi of slaves, do not seem to have dreamed of dissolution as a remedy ; while the Representatives from a few of the extreme Southern States, whence slaves could 3 committ lestion. The[prooeediiig which fo g California to the door of th morable gentlei SiS'&s'' an from Mississioni against whom' ful possessions.” it is also objected that these proceedings are likely to introduce into the other House of Congress two Free Soil Senators” which will destroy the equili­ brium now ekisting there between the North and the South, by giving to tho Free States the majority.- Well now, sir, what are the proceeding complame of, and for which the Union is to be dissolved and th North held responsible! The President, hiiMelf ; southern man and a slaveholder, with a Cabinet, majority of whom are southern menandslave-holdeis, send Thomas Butler King, a sonthem man and a slaveholder, to “ aid and comfort,” encourage and ad­ vise the gold diggers in their efforts to join the sister­ hood ol Stjates. Mr. King returns, b r i n ^ g as.tro- phies two sonthem men—one a Missossippmn and the: other a Sojith Carolinian—(and both syyeholdors I believe) whom our southern President desires to in­ troduce into tho Senate of the United S tates aametui hera of that hodj. And, thorenpon, offr Eonthexa friends declare that if this infamous measure of “ northern aggresripn” to carried out the Union shslt be dissolved and the North held responsible! jBut what, I pray, has the North h a d to do with a ll this 2 W here i»n you discover the slightest traces of »nqrth-! em man’s finger in the whole m a tte r!
