That the Hon liable gentleman docs treat the Northern workmen As Southern slaves is evident from what he has just said. If he had not intended to place them in the same degraded situation of slaves How could he threaten to preach Mitis rec Ion among them sir the honorable gentleman has mistaken the tendency of Northern institutions As much Asho has misconceived the Worth and spirit of Northern . Our institutions have no such tendency no sir but exactly the reverse. They raise up the la place every Man upon in Equality. They give to All equal rights and equal chances Mill hold out to All equal inducements to Northern institutions tend to keep Down the Northern labors the whole history of the North from the Landing of the first Pilgrim on the Rock of plym Riith to this hour con indicts this posit pm. 1 Appeal to the representatives from Pennsylvania.

For a while sir that parallel was made As to the relation of the free negroes of the a orb and the slaves of the South a Lecent however some of those who advocate the surpassing excellence of slave institutions of the South have taken a bolder and More daring stand. Hacking their brains and Illust ratios to justify slavery As prevails among item they have hazarded the bold proposition that operatives Hough Tomio Fly freeware m fact the slaves of Ibe Cupil Atista. Aitch a promo Aitio to of Strous. 1 Tell you sir gentlemen deceive themselves. They a Lauder the free institutions of their country. They wrong the most intelligent and enterprising class of Lien in Earth. 1 know them Well 1 have been Long Issue rated with them. 1 have seen them form lie selves into libraries and other associations for intellectual improvement. I have seen them Avail themselves of every Leisure moment for mental Cul sirs no 1 will do you the Justice to answer for you a ure. I have seen them Learned in the languages skilled in the sciences and info ined in All that is necessary to give Elevation Loi the character of Man and to fit him for the High destinies to which lie was designed. Let the honorable gentleman go among them and he will find them in All respects equal to those who make their boa.& that they Iii All the a usurers in the South. Yes sir As Well que pitied to become honorable rulers of a free people having Heads fitted for the Bif Hest councils tearless hearts and sinewy arnts lbs the enemies of this great nation. Or. Chairman i Call upon gentleman of the North to Bear witness 10 the truth of what 1 have said 1 Call upon them to look Back upon the Days of their childhood and say whom they have seen attain Honor distinction wealth and of ounce Are they not the working the industrious parts of society and do not the institutions of the North necessarily Lead to such results sir when 1 pause for a moment and behold what Are now the Little destitute playmates of my childhood 1 am overwhelmed with astonish intent. Some of them have gone Forth from their Homes become daughters and signers of declarations of Independence founders of new empires Breakers of the chains of despotism Earth even in Irir youth has drunk up their blood shed willingly in the cause of the rights of Man Sony have ministered to the altar of their divine master. Some have led the Bur adorn re the Senate Ilius tra to he inv judiciary and others have wandered in the Loi Pery a Elsol literature trod in Ike Weot Tran Quill sing paths Orphil Amphy delved in the Depths of science and com Pasard the world with their Enterprise. In a word civilization has no Pursuit that they have not already honoured and adorned. And yet these Mon no some of the fruits of those odious institutions against which the eloquent gentleman has attempted his crusade. Sir is the glory of the Northern institutions that they give to every Man poor and Rich High amp Low the same fair play. They place the honors emoluments and distinctions of the country before him and say Quot go run your race for the prize the Reward shall encircle the brow of the most thus is that every one feels and knows that he has a Clear Field before him and that with Industry prudence and perseverance he can command Success in any honorable undertaking. He knows that his Industry is his own his efforts Are his ohm and that every blow he strikes whilst rebounds to his Oion immediate advantage contributes also to the Good of the Community and the glory and renown of his country. My honorable employment arc open to him. The Halls of legislation Are open to him the bar is open to him the Fields of science Are before him there is no Barrier Between him amp the object of his ambition but such As Industry and perseverance May overcome. Look the Workings of their institutions upon the a ipe Stanci of the North. Look her mighty cities her smiling villages her Fertile Fields her productive mines her numerous charities her ten thousand improvements. Behold my own my native state. Pennsylvania is intellectual ised under their auspices. Her soils and Hills and valleys amp rocks and everlasting mountains live and breathe under Tho animating influence of her intelligent ii hard working population a Ery Stream feeds its canal every Section of the country has its rail Road distance is annihilated the Flinty ribs of her Rocky mountains Are driven asunder the bowels of the Earth yield Forth their treasures and the face of the Earth blooms and blossoms and of rectifies like a Jia Rudise. And All this All this is the result of the intelligence Industry and Enterprise of Northern labourers fostered by the genial influence of their institutions. Nor Ore their Effort confined to their own country alone. Their Industry and Enterprise Compass the whole Earth. There is not a wave under heaven thai their Keels have not parted not a Breeze Ever stirred to which they have not unfurled the starry Banner of Tho country. Go to the Frozen Ocean of the North Ond you will find them there to the Ocean in the extreme South and you will find them has no difficulty that they have not overcome the world no limit Thot they have not attained. In every department of mind do the institutions of the North exert a wholesome a developing influence. Sir was but a few Days since you saw the members of this House gathered round the electromagnetic machine of or. Devenport. There Hoy stood mute und motionless beholding for Tho first Lime the secret Sublime and mysterious principles of nature applied to mechanics and there was the machine visible to All eyes moving with the rapidity of lignin log nitwit any apparent cause but the Gentas that made the application of this Susima and mysterious influence who is he hut a Labouring Bard working Blacksmith of the North f sir where do learning literature and Ici Noe a Uriah but in the North where does the press teem with the products of mind but in the North where Are the scientific institutions the Immens libraries rivalling almost this Early Day Lilu rope a vast accumulations but in the North and who sir gives form and Grace and life and pro Kiricon to the Marble but the sculptor of the not yes sir and there too does the genious of the Pencil contribute her glowing creations to the Stock of Northern renown. To Northern Handiwork Are you indebted for the magnificence of this might Capitol. And those Noble historical pieces now filling the panels of the Rotundo which display the beginning Progress and consummation of your Revo fusion and give to All posterity the living forms 6c of the fathers of your re Pumie they too arc the works of a Northern artist i but a Bro i conclude this Branch of my subject let me make one observation that 1 had almost forgotten. The gentleman seems to think that our workmen must of necessity be the passive instruments of our capitalists. His idea of the Power amp influence of wealth controlling the very destinies of the Man who labors must be derived from the institutions of his own generous South where he frankly avows that the capitalist does absolutely own the labourer. His views Are however utterly inapplicable to the North. Who Are the Northern capitalists of to Day but the penniless apprentices of yesterday sir in the North there is scarcely a class of men existing exclusively As capitalists. The character of capitalist and labourer is there United in the san person. In ninety nine cases out of a Hundred who is a capitalist has become so by his own Industry and perseverance. He begins a a Humble a labourer Quot a his Industry virtue and integrity his Only capital. He gradually accumulates. Every Day of toil increases Bis Means. His Means Are then United to his labor and he receives the just and honest profits of them both. Thus he goes on joining bit accumulations with his labor rec Pivia the profits of Bis capital and hit toil scattering tha fruits of his Elf urls abroad for the Benefit of society living in Manly Independence amp laying up a Stock of Comfort and enjoyment for his declining Yeara. Such was the Rich Girard the Quot merchant an Marinor As he styles himself in his lost will. He began his career a destitute Cabin boy. And such Are tie capitalists All Over the North. They were All labourers some few years since and the Humble operative of to Day must and will be the wealthy capitalist in some few years to come and so far Are the institutions of the North from retarding his Advance that they encourage him Aid him cheer cherish and sustain him in his Onward career. But sir there is no limit to this subject. I will pursue no further. I might East ily exhaust myself but the subject is inexhaustible. What 1 have said has been said to vindicate the character of my constituents from unjust attacks and to relieve the institutions of the North from the Burden of denunciation which has been so profusely heaped upon them. I have uttered nothing in a spirit of disparagement of the South. No heaven forbid i am incapable of . The whole country is my country. To me there is neither North nor South nor East nor West. 1 am Humble representative of All. Our fathers fought and bled and died for All. And How can we their sons if we respect their principles and cherish and venerate their memories How can we quarrel about local difficulties i Foster sectional jealousies i stand Here the representative of the Thole country. Not an Inch of any part of that country shall be disparaged with my consent. Whatever concerns its Honor and renown deeply and dearly concerns me. 1 will scrupulously respect the rights and feelings of every Section of the country and do All in my Power to Advance nothing to retard its Peculiar interests except where they May come into conflict with some great fundamental principle which must not be sacrificed. I will exert my influence to heal sectional difference extirpate Petty jealousies Foster a becoming spirit of recollection promote Universal Harmony a Mong the different portions of the Union and make the Union itself As everlasting As the soil which embraces. With these feelings and with this determination i have come into this House. But sir i never can and never i remain silent when the rights or interests or characters or institutions of my own immediate constituents Are attacked. No sir let that attack come from what Quarter May i will be Ever prompt to offer my feeble resist Aco and interpose my voice in their just vindication pkiif8ylva.ma following Resolution has been adopted in the lower House of the a Igieln lure of Pennsylvania Fiat five to forty two resolved that the committee on Banks be instructed to inquire into the expediency of bringing in a Bill compelling the Banks of this Commonwealth to resume the payments of their notes in specie on or before the first monday in february next the same Bill to provide for such restrictions upon the present system of banking in this state As May promote the interest of Tho stale and Tho happiness of the How half the world live has Ever been a mystery to the other halt.
