CO., Front street, Portsmouth, Ohio. Opinions of tbe Republican ers. BBLOW we bsve selected and arranged a series of extracts pertinent to topics that BOW engross the thoughts of every reflecting man. They are so suggestive, in and of themselves, that any comments of ours would be impertinent. Of the men of late times, Webster, Clay, Jack- son and Douglas are tbe names we have seen proper to cite. From tbe first gen- eration of tbe statesmen of the Repub- lic we have quoted Hancock, Patrick Henry, Oouvernenr Morris, Madison, Hamilton and Gerry. Each text is fairly given. Read and Mari- etta Times. I DON'T understand how a man can claim to be a friend of the Union, and yet be in favor of war upon ten millions of the people in the tlnion. You can not cover it up much longer under the pretext of love for the Union. War is disunion, certain, inevitable, final, and irrepressible. Peace is the only policy that can save the country A. Doug- speech in U. S. Senate. FREE SPEECH is a home-bred right, a fireside privilege. It has ever been en- joyed in every bouse, cottage and cabin in the nation. It is not to be drawn into controversy. It is as undoubted as tbe right of breathing the air and walk- ing on earth. It is a right to bo main- tained in peace and in war. It is a right which cannot be invaded without des- troying constitutional liberty. Hence, this right should be guarded and pro- tected by the freemen of this country with a jealous care, unless they are pre- pared for chains and Webster, 1824. ABOLITIONISM! With abolitionism tbe rights of property are nothing the deficiency of the powers of the General Government is nothing; the acknowl- edged and incorttestible powers of tbe States are nothing; the dissolution of the Union and the overthrow of a gov- ernment in which are concentrated the hopes of the civilised world are nothing tingle idea has taken possession of their minds, and onward they purs-no it, overlooking all rpckloss and re of all Speech in tlic U. S. Senate, 1830. IT is to the last degree vicious and in- famous to attempt to support a Govern- ment which manifestly tends to render the persons and property of governed insecure. Some boast of being friends to Government; I a friend to righteous. Government, to a Government founded upon the principles of reason and jus- tice but I glory in publicly avowing my eternal enmity to in Boston, 1774, on 'lie annniccrsary of the "Jluston Massacre" 1770. Is the relinquishmcnt of the trial by jury and the liberty of the press neces- sary for your liberty? Will the aban- donment of the most sacred rights tend to the security of your liberty? Liberty, tbe greatest of all earthly blessings give us that precious jewel, and you may take everything else. The first, thing I have at heart is Amercan liberty the second thing is American rick Henry, in the Virginia Convention, 1788. I LOVE the Constitution, and I love it because I consider it as tbe bond of our existence. I warn you against pushing ent on thswill of the State Governments the experiment too far. Some people for its chief magistrate and for its Senate, will support a plain, rigorous government Tbe blow aimed at members must at every risk. Others, of more demo- give a fatal wound to tbe bead and tbe cratic cast, will oppose it with equal de- destruction of tbe States must be at once termination, and a civil war may be pro- a political suicide.
