Tho time that English counties and Borough first anti slavery clause Tho ordinance of 1787 a eat Knight of the Shire and burgesses to could not have been adopted was proved represent them the parliament House by i three years rejection without the fun so Tho South because Slio imposed it. 1 repeat it was imposition not a compact. The South divided and took Choice and now it will not do to claim Tho other Linof Tho ground of the original dissatisfaction of Tho other party. Hui lick cannot Divide Costalo that Way a one make Tho division and Tako Choice und afterwards claim the other half. Tho South Luis Hor Tho word and it a refusal weaken less sen the smallest degree act which the committee Calls a Quot benevolent and sagacious act a and which they recommend to maintain unimpaired because it a calculated to increase the happiness and Prosperity of Tho Northwest and Torivo strength Aud Security to its that confess and that without division Between the North and South would not impair act of so much future Good to posterity not even upon Tho mistaken application of a few present inhabitants. But this was not the end of Tho petitions a the Puoplo of Indiana were not satisfied with Ono repulse. They returned to the charge and four times More Tho course of Nauy years renewed their Applina Lions for the ten years suspension of Tho ordinance. It was rejected each time and once the Senate where Trio North Carolina senator . Jesse Franklin was chairman of the committee which made Tho report against it. Five times Many years rejected by Congress and the rejection the More emphatic m some instances because it was Tho reversal of the Llo Tiso of a favourable report from a commit toe. Aud now what inhabitant by Indiana does not rejoice Al the deliverance which Tho firmness of Congress then gave them spite of the request of its inhabitants fifty years ago. Thus five times the beginning of this Century five different times and without any distinction Between Northern and South Ern members did Congress refuse to a him pair Tho slavery Compromise of 1787, notwithstanding five times asked for by the people of the territory. Oil squatter sovereignty where were you then 1 it was a Case Fot you to have shown your head to have Arisen your might and established your supremacy forever. It was a Case of a convention of Tho sovereigns themselves and neither this convention nor the Congress Hail a dream of their sovereignty. Tho convention petitioned con Gross a Ward would its guardian Quot children under ago would Puli Tion their father and Congress answered like a Good guardian a Good lather that it would not give them evil although they beg ged for it benighted times a hese and infinitely behind Tho present age. The Mare i nest had not then been found which has been Laid Tho marvellous egg out of which hns been hatched Tho nondescript fowl pc legit a squatter laughter the illustrious principle of non intervention had not then been invented. Trio ignoramuses of that Day had never heard of it though now to be Learned every Hornbook and 1 believe nowhere else but the Horn books. Renet cd merriment How it poor used to disturb the Compromise. Five times the beginning of this can Tury did Congress Rufus of to impair the slav Ery Compromise of�?T87 and now Tho Middle of Tho Century and after thirty years of peace under the Missouri compromised the offspring and continuation of 87�?we Are called upon not merely to impair for a season but to destroy forever a far greater comp Omison extending to far More territory and growing out of necessities far More pressing. And How called a Pond not by the inhabitants not by Uny one human being living expecting to five the territory to be Aflex Ted but upon a motion Congress a silent secret limping baiting creeping squid two impish motion con coined the dark midwife a committee room and sprung upon Congress and the country Fawkes intended to blow up the parliament five Hundred Tako to accomplish their object without professing it upon reasons which Aro contradictory and unfounded terms which Are ambiguous and inconsistent and by throwing others the responsibility of its own act. Insidious character the Nebraska Bill a attempt to smuggle into the territory. It professes not to interfere with the Sov. Ereign rights of the people to legislate for themselves and the very first line of this solemn profession throws upon them a horse Load of Law which they have no right to refuse Timo to read Money to Purchase ability to understand. It throws upon them All the Laws of the United Stales which Are not locally inapplicable and the t comprehends All that Are not specially made for other places also it gives them the Constitution of the United states but without the privileges of voting at presidential congressional elections of making their own judiciary. This non interference with a vengeance. A Community to be buried under a Mountain of Range Law and covered with a under which they arc not to Havo Ono single political right. Why this circumlocution 1 this Extension of a Mountain of irrelevant Law with the exception of the Only one re Lovent and applicable sir it Tho crooked insidious and pusillanimous Way of effecting the repeal of the Missouri Compromise line. It includes nil Law for the Sake of leaving out one Law and effects repeal by omit Sion and legislates by exception. It a new Way of repealing a Law and a bungling attempt to smuggle slavery into the territory and All Tho country out to Tho Canada line and no to the Rocky the crooked line of this smuggling process this a abolish the Compromise line and extend the Constitution Over the country the Constitution recognizes slavery therefore slavery established soon Tho Lino abolished and Tho Constitution extended and being nut there by Tho Constitution it cannot be legislated this the English of this smuggling process and certainly nothing More unworthy of legislation a More derogatory to legislative body a was Ever attempted to be made into a Law. Sir Trio Constitution was not made for territories but tor states. Its provisions Aro All applicable to a pcs and cannot be put operation territories. They cannot vote for president vice president members of Congress nor elect their own officers prescribe the qualifications of voters administer their own Laws by their own judges sheriffs and attorneys and the clause extending Trio Constitution to them a cheat and illusion and a trick to smuggle slavery into the territory. Nor it intended that they shall have any legislative right under the Constitution oven relation to slavery. They May admit it because it to be there by Tho Constitution they cannot exclude it because the Constitution puts it there. That the argument and it a juggle worthy of the trick of one egg under three hats at the same time a and under neither at any time. Besides the Constitution organic not administrative act. It a code of principles not of inns. Not a Clauso it can be executed except by virtue of a Law made under it not even Tho Clauso for recovering fugitive slaves. Nebraska Asylum for runaway 8laves. But i am not done yet with the beauties of this Mode of repealing a Law by exception. There further Couso Quinco to do selected it. The Missouri Compromise consists of two distinct parts first abolition of slavery All the ancient Louisiana North and West of Missouri secondly. A provision fur Tho recovery of fugitive slaves Tho territory Mado free. By the omitted Extension of this Section both these parts Are repealed. A tract of country larger than Tho old thirteen Atlantic states and bordering a thousand Miles the British dominions made Asylum for fugitive slaves. There will to no Law to recover a Slavo from All that vast Region. The constitutional provision limited to states the provision the not of 1787 limited to the Northwest territory Tho second part of the Missouri Compromise extended this right to All the territory North and West of Missouri Ntuli that being repealed that right of recovery lost. I object to this of the part of the Stato of Missouri the state to to most injured by converting All Tho territory North and West of her. Quite out to Tho British line into Asylum for runaway slav. The Blunder cannot let a corrected at least Tho opinion of those who deny inn constitutional Power of Congress to legislate slavery territories by act of Coo Greas. Then comes the reason for excepting the Missouri Compromise from the Extension which Given to a mass of inns which Are not there and denied to itself which there. If the reason had been because it was already there it would Havo been a logical nil comprehensible Renson but that not Tho canse assigned and those which Are assigned no actually numerous vying a a a crop Quot 11� wow up the pm Mem i sir a 7 �tr1 1 �?o11,0 a a a Quot 1820 and 1850 1 can they not Aland together 1 and if not Why Knock the one Down that Al ready Down 1 ii now four years since this inability to stand together took of fact and How do the two sets of measures make out together at the end of this time t perfectly Well. They Are both their feet standing Bolt upright and will stand so forever unless Congress knocks one the other of them Down this fact known to every body and admitted by the Bill itself for if Tho first inconsistent with Tho second and unable to stand Why Ull this trouble to put it Down 1 Why trip up the heels of Tho Man already Fiat Hii Back the ground then comes another reason that this Compromise of 1820 inoperative and void. If so those who Are against its operation should be con tent. It the very condition they wish it useless powerless inactive dead and no bar to the Progress of slavery to the North. Void vacant empty nothing of it. Now if Tho line of 30 dug. 30. Min. inoperative and void it Tho condition of a Fence called Down and the rail carried away and the Field loft open for the a Toek to enter. But the Lence not pulled Down yet. The line not Yot inoperative and void. It existing substantive line alive and operating and operating effectually to bar Tho Progress of slavery to the North and will so Continuo to operator until Congress shall Stop its operation. Then comes Tho final reason that Thore never was any such line the world that it was unconstitutional and void that it had no existence from the beginning and that it must not be repealed by a direct act for that would to to acknowledge its previous exis tip a to to Bottom and a Theta words a leave it to the people thereof that a a May of the Talca and of the territories to regulate slavery for themselves ther please Only Saiget to the boost dilution be the United Stales.11 certainly this a a new Attje Cioa for the states. Heretofore they have been free to regulate slavery for tie Mel pay admit it reject and Ruurt oot by virtue of any Grant of Power the coast dilution Bat by virtue of ail part of their old sovereignly. It also new of the territories. Heretofore Lioy have been Beld to be wards of co Gross and entitled to nothing under Trio Constitution Bat that which Congress extended to them. But this clause a out act id Lily whose it m jeep up the Dogma of the Constitution territories Bat Only there solution to slavery and that for admin Sion not rejection. Three dogmas now afflict Tea land Videlicet squatter sovereignty non intervention and do Power to Congress to legislate upon slavery territories. And this Bill asserts the whole three and Brauti fully illustrates Tho whole three by knocking each one of , and to nullify the constitutional Greo ment and what Intro a terrible involve Tho authors of the doctrine inconsistency of their own and thereby make themselves inoperative and void. And this the analysis of the reason for the Nebraska Bill that part of i which to get rid of the Compromise of 1820 untrue contradictory suicidal and preposterous. And Why such a farrago of nullifies incongruities and inconsistencies 1 purely and simply to throw upon others a upon the Congress of 1850 and the innocent constitutions the blame of what the Bill itself doing the blame of destroying the Compromise of 1820 and with it destroying nil Confidence Between Tho North and the South and arraying one half of the Union against the other deadly hostility. It to be Able to throw blame upon the inocent that this farrago served up to . Territorial sovereignty nonsense and what All this Hotch Potch fori it to establish a principle they say the Principio of non intervention of squatter sovereignly. Sir there no such principle. 1 lie territories Aro Tho children of states. They Are minors under Twenty one years of age and it Tho business of the states through their delegations Congress to take care of these minors until they Are of age until they Are Ripe for state government then give them that government and admit them to Equality with their fathers. That Tho Law and Tho sons of the Case and has been so acknowledged since the first ordinance 1784, by All authorities Federal and state legislative judicial and executive. The slates Congress Are the guardians of the territories and Are bound to exercise the guardianship and cannot a Dicunto it without a breach of Trust and a dereliction of duty. Territorial sovereignty monstrosity born of timidity and ambition hatched into existence Tho hot incubation of a presidential canvass and revolting to the holders when first presented Welt do 1 remember that Day when it was first shown the Senate. Mark Antony did not better remember the Day when Casar first put of that Mantle through which he was after wards pierced with three and Twenty a a envious it was to Senate 1848, and was received nonsense the essence of nonsense Tho quintessence of non sensor Trio five times distilled essence of political nonsensical Ity. The Sturmf speech the Dill. Why sir the territory itself Tho property of the states and they do what they please with it permit it to to settled not of they Picaso Cut it up by lines they please sell it give it away they Dienso Chase White people from it they Picaso. After this farrago this Olla Poa it Day comes a Little stump speech injected the belly of the Bill and which must have a prodigious effect when recited Prairies and out towards the frontiers and up towards the Heads of the creeks a milk Ter and sensation i will read it nil i Hope without fatiguing the House for it both Brief and Beautiful it runs Thos a a it being the intent and meaning of this act Noi to legislate slavery into and stale territory nor to exclude it therefrom but to leave Tho people thereof perfectly Freo to form and regulate their Domestic instill Lions their own Way subject Only to the Constitution of Tho United surtes. This a the speech Sod a pretty Little thing a self and very proper to be spoken from a stump the Prairie.
