I b a re, Senators, believed frem the first, that the agitation of the subject of slarery, would, if not pre­ vented by some timely and effectire measure, end in disunion. Entertaining this opinion, 1 have, on all proper occasions, endeavored to call the attention of Doth of the two groat parties which divido the country, to adopt some such measure to prevent _ so great a disaster, but without success. The agitation has boon permitted to proceed, with almost no at­ tempt (o resist it, until it has reached a period when it oan be no longer disguised or denied that the Union is in danger. You have thus had forced upon you the greatest and the gravest question that ever can come under your consideration. How oan tho Union be preserved i To give a satisfactory answer to this mighty ques­ tion, It is indispeusabie to .have a s accurate and tho­ rough knowledge of tho n ^ u re and the character of tho cause by which the Uuion is endangered. W ith­ out snch knowledge it is impossible to prononnee, with any certainty, by what measure it oan bo saved, just as it would bo impossible for a physician to pro­ nounce, in the case of some dangerous disease, with any certainly, by what remedy the patient could be saved, without similar knowledge of tho nature and character of the caneo of the disease. The first question, then, presented for consideration, in the investigation I propose, in order so obtain such know­ ledge, is—what is it that has endangered t'no Union 1 To this question there oan be but one answer—that the immediate cause is, tho almost universal discon­ tent which pervades ail the states composing the southern section of the Unlen. This widely extended discontent is not of rocent origin. It oommenoed with the agitation of the slavery question, and has been increasing ever since. The next question is— W h at baa caused this wide-diffused and almost uni­ versal discontent 1 It is a great mistake to suppose, as is by some, that it originated with_ demagogues, who excited the dis- -Mwii W1.MVU lei.uuea. a uerv 10 uu luuuuai-iuu citoment, and exerted to the utmost to keep the peo­ ple quiet. The great mass of the people of the south were diyided, ns in tho other section, into whigs and democrats. 'Tho luaders and tho presses of both ■ tho south were very intand restore q u iet; ly approciate tho immeuse force which thiscauBO ox- q^i^l x r ‘s gfrnx.TtTasX sStif v r stcTr aud nooro powerful must exist, to produce a discon­ tent so wide and deep, tkim the one Inferred. The tbo southern states, as prevalent as the dtscunient it- next question, then, te be considered is, what has One of the causes is, undoubtedly, to bo traced to the long-coDtinuod agitation of the slave qaestion on tbo partof tbo n orth, and tho many aggressions which they have made on the rights of the south, during ibe time. 1 will rot eriumerate them atpretCnt.asilw iU the great and primary cause, it is to be found in tho fact, that tho equilibrium between the two sections in the government, as it stood when the constitution was ratified and the government put in action, has been destroyed. At that time, there was nearly a perfect equilibrium between the two, which afforded ample means to each to protect itself against tl^e ag­ gression of the other ; but as it now stands, one sec­ tion has exclusive power of controlling the govern­ ment, which leaves the other without any adequate means of protecting itself aga’nst its encroachment and oppression. To place this subject distinctly be­ fore you, 1 have, senators, prepared a brief statistical statement, showing the relative weight ot the two sections in the government, under tho first census of 1790, and the last census of 1840. According to the lormer, the populationof tho Uni­ ted States, inolnding Vermont, Kentucky, and Tea- Ar l.st Inst Hrhs Red Besrh.Small East- ■ “ isted at that time—a true, perfect equilibrium f rt for W o rk.

W hatever section con­ centrates the two in itself, must possess control of the entire government. Rut we are just a t the close of the sixth decade, and the oommencemont of the seventh. Tho oer«ns is to bo taken this year, which must add greatly ti­ the decided proponderanoe of the north in the Houv of Representatives, and in the electoral eolle vo.

This great in- I crease of Senators, added to the great incre ase of I members of the House of Kepresentatives, and elec- I toral college, on tho part of the north, which must take place upon the next decade, will effeetnally and eventually destroy the equilibrium which existed when tho government commenced. Had this destmotion been the operation of time, without the interference of government, the south would have had no reason to complain; but such was not the fact. It was caused by the legislation of this government, which was appointed as the common agent of all, and charged with the protection of tho interests and security of all. The legislation by which it has been effected may be classed onder three heads. Tbo first is that series of acts by which the south has been excluded from the common territory belonging to all of the states, as the members oL the feder^ L uioD, wkich has had the effect of extenHiag vastly the portion allotted to the northern section, and reBtrietiflff within narrow limits the portion left the soath. The next consists in adopting a system of revenue and disbursements by which an undue pro­ portion of the burthen of taxation has been imposed u p ^ the Eonth, and an undue proportion of its pro- stem Oi changed. J propose to bestow upon each of these, in the order they staad, a few remarks, with the view of showing that it ifl owing to the action of this government, that the eqailibriam between the two seotlons has been de- stroyed, and the whole power of the system centered in a sectional majerity. The first organized movement, towards it. com­ menced in 1835.

The occasion will net permit me to trace the measures by whioh this great change h»s it«d. If ife did, it wonld aqt be diffi- powers, will scarcely be denied by any one conversant with the political history of the country, is equally certain; T h a t it also claims tho right to resort to force, to maintain whatever power she claims a gainst aU oeposition. Indeed, it is appa­ rent from_ what we daily hear, that this has become the prevaUing and fixed opinion o f a g reat majority of the oommnnity. Now, 1 ask, w hat im itation oan possibly be placed upon the powers of a government, claiming and exercising snon rig h ts! And, if none can be, now can the separate government of the states :t the powers reserved t the people of the sev Ich are reserved to I vuwui, vuoii sovereign powers, hy Vi.uiuu vucj lained and established, not only their separate te constitutions and governments, but also the constitution and government of the U. States 1 But if they have no oonstitmional means of maintainiBg 'them against the right claimed by this government, it necessarily follows, that they hold them a t its plea­ sure and discretion, and th a t all the powers of the system are, in reality, concentrated in i t . . I t also fol­ lows, that the character of the government has been changed in oonseqnenoe, from a federal republic, as it originally came from the hands of its framers, and that it has been changed into a great national conso­ lidated democracy. It has, indeed, a t present, aU the characteristics of tbo latter, and not one of the for­ mer, although it stiU retains its outward form. The result of the whole of these causes combined, is that the north has acquired a decided ascendancy over every department of this government, and through it, a control over all the powers of the sys­ tem. A single section, governed by the wiU of tho numerical majority, h is now, in fact, the control of the goveniment, and the entire power of the system.. W h at was «nce a constitutional federal republic, is now converted, in reality, into ono as a.t^lnte as that ot the Autocrat of Hnssia, and as despotic in its tendency as any absolute government that ever ex- A b , then, tho north has the absolute control over the government, it is manifast, that, on all ques­ tions between it and the south, where there is a diversity of interest, the interest of the latter will be sacrificed to the former, however oppressive the effects may be, as the south possepes no means by which it can resist, throngh the action of the government.— But If there were no questions of vital importance to the south, in reference to which there was a diversity of views between the two sections, this state uf things might be endured, without the hazard of destruction, by the south. But suohis not the fact. There is a ques­ tion of vitai importance to tho sontherh section, in reference to whieh the views and feelings of the two sections are opposite and hostile as they can possibly sponsible for suppressing it, by the use of and every means. Those less opposed and hestile regard it as a crime—an offence against h umanity, as they call it, and although not so fanatical, feel them­ selves bound to use all efforts to effect the same object. While those who are least opposed and hostile, re­ gard it os a blot a nd a stain on the ohacaoter of what they call the nation, and feel themselves accordingly bound to give it no countenance or support. On the itrary, the southern section regards the relation a • which cannot be destroyed without snbjectinj r.-.ri'n I’to S V T h ™ ^ s™ oi they made an impression on the minds of many, that there was littie or no restraint to prevent tho gov­ ernment to do whatever it might choose to do. ITiis was sufficient of itself to put the most fanatical por­ tion of the north in action, for the purpose of de­ stroying the existing relation between the two races But this powerful cord has proved no better than the spiritual. It resisted for a long timo the explo­ sive tendency of the agitation, b u t has finally snap­ ped under its force—if not entirely nearly st. Nor is there one of the remaining cords which has not , , that can with no propriety of lan­ guage be oalled a Union, when the only means by which the weaker is held connected with thestroqger portion, is foree. It may, indeed, keep them oonnhet- ed, but the conn^tion will partake much more of'the oharaoter t f subjugation on the part of tbd weaker lo the stronger, th to the union of free, independent and sovereign istates in one federal onion, as they stood in the eacjy stages of tbo goveniment, and whioh only is worthy of the sacred name of Union. Having now, senators, explained what it is that endangers the Union, and traced it to its cause, and explained its nature and character, the great qnes- tion again recurs. How oan the Union be saved 1 To this I answer, there is b a t one way by whioh it can be, and that is, by adopting such measures as wUl satisfy the states belonging tp the southom section that they can remain in the Union consistently with their ho­ nor and their safety. There is, again, only one way by whioh that can be effected, and that is by review­ ing the oanses by which this belief has been produced.

So long as the Union, instead of being regarded as a protector, is regarded in the opposite character by not much less than a majority of the states, it will be in vain to attempt to concentrate them by pronouncing eulogies on it. Besides, this cry of Union comes commonly from those whom we cannot believe to bo sincere. It nsnaUy comes front our a ssailants; bnt we cannot be­ lieve them to'be -sjneere; for if they loved the Union, they would neoeS^rily be devoted to the constitu­ tion. ltm adethoU n ioD ,,andto destroy the oonsti- tutionj would bo to destroy the Union. B u t th o only reliable and certain evidence o f devotion to the con­ stitution is, to abstain, on the quo hand, from violai- ting it, and to repel, on tho other, all attempts to violate it. It is only by faithfully performing those high duties, that the Constitution oan be preserved, and with it-the thi \ ’ Union, then stands t aiiswar. a uilo wib , uua i^naa ib is sue umy iiisi,auce, (for there are many others,) b u t because the viola­ tion, in this particular, is too notorious and palpable to be denieA Again, have they stood forth faithfully to repel violations of the oonstitntion 1 L e t their course in reference to tfle agitation of the slavery question, which was commenced,and has been carried on for fifteen years, avowedly for the purpose of abolishing slavery in the states—an object all ao- knowledged to I . . . . . 4 t _x _ _ ______ LStitutio __ ____ __ __ iLem ekow a single instance, during thifl long period, in which ih e j hav«-denounced fchd agitators, or their many attempts to effect what is admitted to bo on- constitutional, or a single measure which they have brenght forward for that purpose.

If tbo individuals . 10 have made this movement had gone Into Oalift r- ‘ nia as adventurers; and, if as sueh, they had con- quered the territory, and established their independ­ ence, the sovereignty of the country would have been vested in them as a separate and independent com­ munity. In that case, they would have had the right to form a constitution, and to establish a government for themselves; and if after that thoy had t h o n ^ t proper to apply to Congress for admission into the Union as a sovereign and independent state, aU this would have been regular and according to estabitobed But snch is not the case. It was tho ? K l \ . . except it can be she: been divested of tbei _ . Nor to it lass clear that the power of legislating over the territory is vested in Congress, and not, as isassumed in the inhabitants of the territories. Nono oan deny that the government of the United States have the power to acquire territories, either by war o r by treaty; brit if the jwwer to acquire|exists, it belOnga to Congress to cany it into execution.

Where the power to v e sted; for if vested ah all in the government of the United States, or any of its departments or officers, the power carrying it into execution is clearly vested in Congress. B u t this important proviso, while it gives to Congress tho power of legislating over territories, imposes import­ ant restrictions on its exercise, by restricting Con­ gress to passing laws necessary and proper for carry­ ing the power into exeention. Tho prohibition ex­ tends, not only to a ll laws not suitable w appropriate to the object, bnt also to all that are unjust, unequal “ unfair, for all such laws would be unnecessary and proper, and, therefore, nnconEtitational. Having now established, beyond controversy, that ..ue sovereignty over the territories is vested in the United States—that is, in the several states corapo- sing theUnion—and that^tho power of legislating over them is expressly vested in Congress, it follows th a t the individnals in California who have nndertaken to form a c onstitntion and a state, and to exercise tho power of legislation, without the consent o f Congress, have usurped the sovereignty of the states and tho authority of Congress, and have acted in open defi­ ance of both. In other words, what they have done is revolutionary and rebeUions in its character, anar­ chical in its tendency, and calculated to lead to tho nost dangerous consequences. Had they a cted from, iremediiation and design, it would have been in fact: in actual rebellion, but snch is not the case. The blame lies much less upon them, than upon those who have induced them to take a course so unconstitu­ tional and dangerous. They have been led into i t b y language h eld here, and the course pursued by tho executive branch of the government. 1 have not seen the answer of the ExecutivO to the calls made by the two honses of Congress, for infor- nation a ato the course which i t topk, or the part rhioh it acted, in reference to w hat was done in Cali- omia. I understand the answers have not y e t been minted. Bnt there to enough known to justify tho iBsertioB, that those who profess to represent and a ct under the authority of the Executive, have advtoei^ aided, and encouraged the movement which termi­ nated in forming what they caU a cohstitutioa and a state.
