My Darling has listened quietly now she left her place beside to to go to her Dearest resting place in his arms.

Tho next Day he left us to return to Ohio lie wished he said to make himself a Home and a position before to married and we respected the Noble heart that shrank from seeming to woo tho heiress and he went Hack. At first his letters were frequent then longer intervals Camo Between them and we noticed that each time the writing was loss distinct the words of love More constrained and the letters Shorter.

Than All else tho world offered her and that in heart and truth they were indeed a lady a both. A a Page from the record. In 1856 John w. Forney now tho Leader of the Republican party in Pennsylvania was chairman of tho democratic state Cen trial committee and issued an address to the people in which the following eloquent passage occurred the adversaries of tho democratic party have dissolved the american Union in Advance so far As by their own action they can consummate that dire Ful result. They Onn no longer assemble in National convention they congregate As tho representatives of a fragment of one half of our Happy country and they arrogate to themselves the Mastery of the other half by attempting to consolidate a fierce and fanatical sectional majority in every department of tho government. They declare that the country is on the eve of unprecedented convulsions and they proclaim their purpose to arrest these convulsions by ignoring and insulting fifteen Sovereign states of the Union. They talk of peace and in their conventions proclaim a policy which must end in civil War. They Appeal to heaven to Sanctify a movement which if successful would destroy the fairest fabric of Freedom on the Globe. They invite our countrymen to support their cause in the midst of the most irreverent blasphemies of the Constitution. They Prate of exclusive americanism while they accept As leaders men who profane the sages of the Post with inconceivable Calum Ines. But they deserve credit for their bold Ness. They do not attempt to conceal the car fill end which should they succeed must Crown their efforts. True to the history of All sectional parties they unite men not by a love of country but by a hatred of of atonal principles. Their Bond of action is a sympathy of antagonisms not a Harmony of patriotic sentiments and to consummate their purposes they would sacrifice every great material interests of society. They have already succeeded in dividing the Christian Church and now they would Lay their hands upon the bulwarks of our liberties they would rest the rom the glm ious purpose to which it was Edie ated by its founders and they would oreo at Washington a sectional despotism whose presiding a divinities would to hostility to the Equality of the states and the Equality of the citizens and relentless War upon the Domestic institutions of the such was the picture of or.

I at tho conclusion of these Ron Marks some conversation was had Between the president and several members of the delegations from the Border states in which it was represented that those states could not to expected to Movo in so great a matter As that brought to their notice in the foregoing address Whilo As yet the Congress had taken no Stop beyond the passage of a Resolution expressive rather of a sentiment than presenting a substantial and reliable basis of president acknowledged the Force of this View and admitted that tho Bonder states Wero entitled to expert a substantial pledge of Pool diary Aid As the condition of taking into sons adoration a proposition so important in its relations to their social system. It was further represented in the conference that tho people of the Border states wore interested in knowing the Groat importance which the president attached to the policy in question while it was equally duo to the country to the president and to Thom solves that tho representatives of the Border slave holding states should publicly Ann Unoo the motives under which they were called to not and the considerations of Public policy urged upon them and their constituents by the president.

To the president Quot the undersigned. Representatives of Kentucky Virginia,-.Missouri and Maryland a the two houses of Congress have listened to your address with the profound sensibility naturally inspired by tho High source from which it emanates tho earnestness which marked its delivery and the overwhelming importance of the subject of which it treats. We have Given it a most respectful consideration and now Lay Bosforo you our response. To regret that want of time has not permit off de us to make it Moro perfect. have not been wanting or. President in respect to you and in Devotion to tho Constitution and the Union. To have not been indifferent to the great difficulties surrounding you compared with which All Formor National troubles Havo been but As the summer Cloyid and to. Have freely Given you our sympathy and support. Repudiating the dangerous heresies of the secessionists we believed with you that tho War o i their part is aggressive and wicked and the objects for which it was to be prosecuted on ours defined by your message at the opening of the Prev ent Congress to be such As All Good Mon should approve vie have not hesitated to vote All supplies necessary to carry it on vigorously. Aye Havo voted All the men and Money you have asked for and oven More we Havo imposed onerous faxes on our pen plot and they Are paying them with cheerfulness and alacrity to have encouraged enlistments arid sent to the Field Many of on Best men arid some of our number have offered their persons to the enemy is pledges of their sincerity and Devotion to the country. A. Avo have done All this under the most discouraging circumstances Ami in the Fuco of measures most distasteful to us arid injurious to the interest i we represent and in the hearing of doctrines avowed by those who claim to be your friends most he abhorrent to usand our constituents. But for All this we have nov or faltered nor shall we As Long As we Constitution to defend and a government which protects us. And we Are ready for. To a exod efforts and even greater sacrifices Yea any sacrifice when we Are satisfied it is required to preserve our admirable form of government and the priceless blessings of constitutional Liberty. A few of our number voted for the recommended by our message of the 6th of March last the Greiter portion off us did not and we will briefly state the prominent reasons which influenced orig action. In the first place it proposed a Radical change of our social system arid was hurried through both houses with undue haste without. Reasonable time for consideration and debate and with no time at All for consultation with our constituents whose interests it deeply _ involved it seemed like an interference by this government with a question which peculiarly and exclusively belonged to our respective states on which they had not sought i vice or to limited Aid. Many of us doubted the constitutional Power of this Goy Etui Nenoff to Buey for the , and All of us thought our finances Wero on no condition to Lear the immense out Lay which its adoption arid Faith Ful execution would impose Upun the National Treasury. If to pause but a. Moment to the debt would have it is one which ought to be cherished perhaps if we were to make the attempt vye might find that we differ even among it is enough for our purpose to know that it is right and so knowing we did not see Why we should now to expected to yield it. Ave had contributed our full share to relieve the country at this terrible crisis we had done As much As had been required off others in Liko circumstances and to did not see Why sacrifices should to expect of of us from which others no Ziporo Loyal Wero exempt. Onor see what Good the nation would derive Froin it. Such a sacrifice submitted to by us would not have strengthened the Arm of this government or weakened that of the enemy. It was not necessary As a pledge of our loyalty for that had been manifested beyond a reasonable doubt in every form and at every place possible. Y a a re was not the remotest probability that the states we represent would join in the rebellion nor is there now or of their electing to go with the Southern Section in the event of a recognition of the Independence of any part of tho disaffected Region our states Are fixed unalterably in their Resolution to adhere to and support the Union. They see no safety for themselves and no Hope for constitutional Liberty but by its preservation they will under no circumstance consent to its dissolution and we do them Rio More than Justice when we assure you that while the War is conducted to prevent that deplorable catastrophe they will sustain it As Long As Thoy to Ari i Rigister a Man or coir mind h Dollar. Nor will they Over consent in any event to unite with the Southern confederacy tho bitter fruits of the Peculiar doctrines of that Region will forever prevent them Riim placing their Security and happiness in the custody of an association which has incorporated in its organic Law the seeds of its own destruction. Avo cannot admit or. President that if to had voted for the Resolution in the emancipation message of March last War would now be substantially eroded. Aye Are Mable to see How our action in this particular has Given or could give to the rebellion. The Resolution has passed and if there be virtue in it it will be quite As efficacious As if to had voted for it. Avo have not Power to bind our states in this,.respect by our votes Here and whether we. Bad voted the one Way or tho other they Are in the same condition of Freedom to accept or reject its provisions. Quot no sir the we has not by Eri prolonged or hindered by our action on this or any other measure. Ayo must look for Othet causes for that lamented fact. Ave think there is not much difficulty not much uncertainty in pointing out others far More probably and potent in their agencies to that end. 1 tho rebellion derives its strength from the Union of All classes in the insurgent states and while that in Iori lasts the War will never end until they Are utterly exhausted. Ave know that at the inception of these troubles Southern society was divided and. That a Large portion pm Ruy were opposed to secession. Now tile great mass of Southern people Are United. To discover Why they Are so we must glance at Southern society and notice the classes into which it Lias been divided and which still distinguish it. They Are in arms but not for the Synirie of How can we by. A Quot a. Or a a a a a a Muir a a Quot j a a a a a a a entailed we Are appalled by its magnitude. I jets they Aro moved to a common end but the proposition was addressed to All the states i by different and even inconsistent reasons. �?7.�?.j a i via a a the to riders which Oom Prohens what was previously Kriwow its tie state rights party and is much the lesser class seek to break Down National Independence and set up state domination. Avith thenry it is a War against nationality. The other class is fighting is it supposes to maintain and preserve its rights of property and Domestic safety which it has been made to believe Are assailed by this government. This latter class Are not Dis unionists per so they ate so Only because they have been made to belive that this administration is inimical to their right and is making War on their Domestic ins titu As these two. Classes act to and embraced the whole number of to. The census of 1860 there were then nearly 4,000,000 slaves in the country from natural increase they exceed that num her now. At even the Low average of $300, the Price fixed by the emancipation act for the slaves of this District and greatly below their real Worth their value Ruris up to the enormous sum of $1,200,000,000 and if to that we add the Cost of deportation and colonization at $100, each which is but a fraction More than in actually paid by the Maryland colonization society we have $400- ,000,000 More 1 Avo were not willing to impose a tax on our people1 sufficient to tho interest on that sum in addition to tho vast and daily increasing debt already fixed upon them by tho Exi Gonios of the War and if we had been willing the country could not Bear it. Stated in this form to lib proposition is nothing less than the deportation from the country or $1,000,000,000 Worth of producing labor and in its place of an interest bearing debt of tho same amount 1. But if we. Are told that it was expected that Only the states we to present would of copt Quot the proposition we respectfully Subir it that it involves a sum too great for the financial ability of this government at this time.

Tho following paper was sent to tho president signed by a majority of tho representatives from tho. Border slav holding states and we have the enormous sum of $478,038,133 Avo did not feel that we should he justified in voting for a measure which if Jarriod out would add this vast amount to our Public debt at a moment when the Treasury was reeling under tho enormous expenditure of the War. Again it seemed to us that this Resolution was but the and ounciation of a sont Mont which could not or was not Likely to to reduced to an actual tangible proposition. No movement was then made to provide and appropriate tho funds required to carry it into effect and to Wero not encouraged to believe that funds would be provided. And our belief has been fully justified by subsequent events. Not to mention other Coroum Tanoos it is quite sufficient for our purpose to bring to your notice tho fast that while this Resolution was under consideration in Trio Senate our colleague the senator from Kentucky moved an amendment appropriating $500,000 to object therein i signator and it was voted Down with great unanimity. Arhat Confidence Thon could we reasonably Foel that if we committed ourselves to the policy it proposed our constituents would Roap the fruits of the Promise hold out and on what ground could we As fair Mon approach Thorn and Ohol Lenge their support ? tho right to hold Silivos is a right appertaining to All tho states of this Union. They Havo the right to cherish or abolish tho institution As their tastes or their interests May prompt and no Ono is authorized to question the right or limit tho Onjo Mont. And no Ono Lias Moro Jearly affirmed that right than you Havo. Your inaugural address does you Groat Honor in this Rospert and inspired the country with Confidence in your fairness and respect for Trio Law. Our states Aro in the enjoy Niento Riff that right. Avo do not Foel called on to do fond tho institution or to affirm Tiou. As Long get Hor they will hover assent to a peace. The policy then to be pursued i obvious the former class will Neyer be reconciled but the latter May he. Remove their apprehensions satisfy them that no harm is intended to them and their institutions that this government is not making War on their rights of property but is simply defending its legitimate authority Rind they will gladly return to their allegiance As soon As tho pressure of military Dominion imposed by tho authority is removed from months ago both Ile uses of Congress rid opting the spirit of your message then but recently sent in declared with singular unanimity tho objects of the War and the country instantly hounded to your Side to assist you in carrying it on. If the spirit of that Resolution had been adhered to we Are confident that we should before now have seen the end of this deplorable conflict. But what Havo we seen ? in both houses off Congress we have heard doctrines subversive of the principles of tho Constitution and Scon measure after measure founded in substance on those doctrines proposed and carried through which can have no other effect than to distract and Divide Loyal men and exasperate and drive still fur ther from us and their duty the Peu Plo of the rebellious states. Military of icons following these bad examples Havo stepped beyond the just limits of their authority in tho same direction until in several instances you have Felt tho Nocos sity of interfering to arrest them. And even the passage of the Resolution to which you refer Lias Boon ostentatiously proclaimed As the Triumph of a _ principle which the Puoplo of tho Southorn states regard As run Ioris to Thom. Tho effect of those measures was foretold and May now be seen in the indurated Stato of Southern feeling. A to those causes or. President and not to our omission to Voto for tho Resolution recommended by you to solemnly Bolive we Are to attribute the Terrillo earnestness of those in arms against tho government and the continuance of tho War. Nor do to permit us to say or. President with All respect to you agree that tho institution of so Ivory is a a the lever of their Power a hut to Aro of the. Opinion that a a tho Levor of their Power is tho apprehension that tho Powors of a common government Croato it for Oom Raon and equal Protection to the interests of All will be wielded against the institutions of the Southorn states. There is Ono Othor Idoa in your address we feel called on to a notice. At Tor stating tho fact of your repudiation of gooral Hunters proclamation you add a a a Yot in repudiating it i gave dissatisfaction if , to Many whose support to tho country cannot a Ford to lose. And this is not tho end of it. Tho pressure in this direction is still upon to and is increasing. By conceding what i now ask you can1 relieve to and much More can Rel Oivo tho country in this important Ayo have anxiously looked into this pass. Agu to discover its True import hut to Are yet in painful uncertainty conceding what you now ask relieve of and the country from the to which you refer 7�?~ ave will not allow ourselves to think that tho proposition is that we consent to give up slavery to the und that the Hunter proclamation May Bolot Loo Dpn the Southern people for it is too Well known that we would not to parties to any such measure and we have too much xes doff for you to imagine you would propose it. Can it mean that by sacrificing our interest in slavery we appease the spirit that control that pressure cause it to be la rid the country of the pestilent agitation of the slavery question ? ave Are forbidden Soto think for. That spirit would not be satisfied with the liberation of 700,000 slaves us Cense its agitation while 300,000,000 Sriri Saiid in bondage. Can it mean that by abandoning slavery in our states we Are removing tho pressure from you and the country by rep Arius for a separation on the line of the Ootton states Avo Are forbidden so to think.
