I Tim and again has upon the democratic party that that great political organization was for partizan purposes constantly agitating Liis pestilent question of negro servitude but history in Terance a swayed by the passions of the hour will vindicate its character from this aspersion and speak in glowing Eulogy of its struggle to preserve the constitutional lright8 of thu sections from the assaults of a wild fanaticism Pur Earnest endeavours has been to transmit to posterity unimpaired the invaluable legacy of the free institutions which Yre have received in Trust from our fathers. Why or. Speaker so. Assiduously and with so much solicitude have we been devoted to this great purpose that in derision the democracy has been stigmatized party of a a a a Union savers.�?�. When we pointed to the inevitable results of this incessant abolition a agitation results which Are now fulfilled prophecies we were met with those derisive cries. But sir this term of intended obloquy a and reproach is the brightest Gem that adorns the Coronet upon i to brow. A we Are now arraigned not for too much Fidelity to the Union but for sympathizing with one class who Are seeking its destruction whelming refutation of this a Artize i Derous. Accusation i have but to p masses of its followers from my Cleil Jand. Mcclernand and other Brauff Down to tie humblest private in the. Who have rushed by thousands to the defence of our Flag and to the alacrity with which its representatives stand ready to Send the last Man and Yote tho last Dollar to sustain the. Remarks of Hon. C. L Lamberton. Delivered in the Senate March i to 18g2, on Bill entitled a a joint resolutions relative to the abolition of slavery in the District of tho question being on Senate Bill no. 323, entitled Quot joint resolutions relative to the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia National government and crash democratic party needs sir no Eulogy or my hands. Step by step it has a kept March with the country in its Road to a Empire and the great achievements of the a country a past Are. Tie enduring monuments a of its Fidelity to the Republic. I that party Inis ceased to control the policy of the National government yet the agitation of the abolition of negro slavery does not Cerise. It is still ringing in the Halls of Congress and even like an unwelcome visitant of Trudes itself in thie chamber. Not a single Vieni her of that party there nor Here has sought to introduce it. The agitation Cornos from the opposite Sido of this body. Now sir Why should this thing Bei to give Assurance to the people no assault was intended upon. The constitutional rights of any state that a deep Rove Renco for our written charter Anima Tod the Republican party although sectional in its they incorporated in their i platform if Principio framed at Chicago and upon which Ulicy elected a president a a a i Law them8elvcs and to Kim Quot thut the a a maintenance in Violetc of tho rights i of he states a cd especially the right of each state to order and control its own Domestic institutions. Ace tiding to its own judgement exclusively is Esso initial to that balt Nice of Power on which the per it a a Iii and endurance of our Fahrio depend and to denounce the Lawless invasion by armed Force of the soil of any state or territory no input ter under what pretext As among the gravest of to give still futher Asu ranges to the country the president on the Day of his inauguration from the Eastern portico of tho Capitol in the presence of congregated thousands from All parts of the Union reiterated these sentiments and declared that he pressed a a upon the Public attention the most i conclusive evidences of which the Caso i the proper peace arid Security of Onse Tiona Ca to to in Anywise endangered by the now incoming administration a and a a that All the Protection which consistently with the Constitution and the Laws can be Given will be cheerfully Given to All the Soutos when lawfully demanded for whatever cause As cheerfully to one Section As to author and further that he a a had no purpose directly or India hotly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists that life had not the a a lawful right to do so a and no a a inclination to do Sun if it was lawful sentiments which he again repeated in his message of july. To give additional pledges that no Agge Eusivo assault was intended upon state rights or. Corwin the Republican Leader in tho last Congress offered in that body to be passed and subsequently submitted fir ratification to the several states an amendment to the twelfth Section of the Constitution declaratory that hereafter a a no shall to made to the Constitution which will authorize or give Congress Power to abolish i or interfere within any state with the do-me8tio institutions thereof including that of and especially this miserable subject of abolition must inevitably paralyse tho energies of the government in suppressing this most accursed rebellion. This legislation is not asked for by tho Poplo hut seems to to introduced in obedience to the Behest of the Samo spirit which has brought All this woe upon tho country. It is evil in tendency. Disconnected from ulterior considerations it would not Rise to the dignity that now attaches to it but at this time accompanied As it is by such aggressive declarations upon the part of its friends its introduction Here indicates the inception of a policy pregnant with untold ills to the country. We Are told it is to he but the beginning to tho Universal scheme of negro emancipation it is sir the Small Black a loud that precedes the gathering storm ready to burst with irresistible fury Over the land. When i assert that this is but the entering wedge to ruthless invasion of constitutional right i speak sir not without warrant for at a Largo meeting of the members of Liis emancipation party held at the Copper Institute a few Days since in new York i find by the reported proceedings in the Tribune of the seventh instant Carl Schurz the representative of tho government in a High and responsible position abroad saying amid Load and continued applause a a left. Slavery in the District of Columbia and wherever the government has a memo Fly ate authority to senator Wilmut in a let ter to the Sarito meeting declared a a we must and will now and forever destroy and wipe out from this nation the acct used institution of without seeking beyond this Hall for evidence of this intent tho sentiments of the senators from Allegheny and Bradford sustain to in this position. The senator from addressing the Senate at a previous stage of Jis diffusion said a i tie District of Columbia lie place to begin to attack this institution s will serve As not entering wedge it is t to Stop there that is the senator from Allegheny or. Irish declared that a a abolition of slavery in tho District of Colum Bia is the blow which is to Shako the whole Skiavo system i foundation and that in his opinion this constituted the. Groat importance and Groat Merit of the measure submitted to Congress. Gave the eos to Tjie wings of the wind As the sentiments Fly the on Tirfe North. Tho Southern press Ftfe pulpit tho Halls of legislation and even their very articles of secession us if by concert spoke of the aggressive acts til the abolition Zed North showed How their a a be Euliar institutions was denounced with polygamy As Trio twin Relio of barbarism quoted or. Seward so a irrepressible conflict doctrine a pointed to tho insane raid of John Brown until Many who doubted believed and feverish thousands in the South became convinced that the government of their ancestors failure and that tho time was fast approaching when then should be thrown Back upon natures first grand principles the duty and necessity of Seli preservation a it stated by Post master general Blair in his letter to the meeting Cooper Institute that a a it was proclaiming to tho Labouring Whites who fill tho rebellion that the Cleotien of or. Lincoln involved emancipation Equality of the negroes with them and consequently an amalgamation that their jealously was stimulated to the the result of this accursed conspiracy and this miserable delusion is before us. No sir it is. Our Truo policy so to legislate and act As to separate the deluded followers Iroku tho leaders. To do this make Clear that the whole North , and sustain the Earnest protestation of Loyal men in the South that the re solutions Ejof Congress which form the preamble to my Amend Merit Are not. Meaningless but express the True sentiments of our people Supli legislation As that contemplated by the original Resolution with its subsequent intent will be Worth More to the waning fortunes of the enemy than an army with banners. J. A again sir it is inexpedient because emancipation would not hasten the return of peace but by exasperating the Loyal men of the South would unite them Witolf the rebels against us and prolong the War in this View i am not singular but again quote. From that candid and truthful letter of Montgomery Blair a your d of faculties will not he lessened now sir i am not the Champion of slavery but is this contemplated attack on the rights of property of tho Loyal men in tho seceded states and of the Border states for the Union in keeping with the re Cordeil sentiments of the Republican party at Chicago and in Congress ? if it was unconstitutional heretofore to assail rights in the states any the less so now ?. We must preserve the government inside of the boundaries of constitutional Law else we will if disregarding it part present to the world. The strange anomaly of invoking the Power of the government to defend the Constitution from the from of rebels whilst to Are violating it ourselves the original Resolution is expedient because it panders to the abolition sentiments of the we Dou Phillipss the garrisons the cheer Evsy that Tass of men who the donator from Bradford says a have told Tuffo a world More truth than the world have Givah them credit for a a class of Man who Are disunion its per so men who have denounced the Constitution of our fathers As a a a covenant with death and. A league with loll a an i Union of i free and slave states made by tho men of the revolution a a a chaining of the living o the they have longed for Liis hour of civil War to them it is the forerunner of a negro they desire not the Constitution to be maintained As it is and the Union preserved us it was. To them the conflict of contending by Olli Rhood emits sounds of melodious Iusie they rejoice with exceeding Joy for to them in the language of a Lloyd Garrison it is As if a tho last covenant with death was annulled and tho agreement with Bell. Broken.�?�. And Vendell Phillips a to persons hold to labor in Sery tudo by the Laws of said state a. Thus was the record made up and so has the country read and approved it. But sir before proceeding to tho discussion of this Resolution permit to to suggest that As legislators to Are too often inclined to for or. Life Morton moved to substitute the Fol fiet Ous limited Shoro of duty that to Are in Tom it. 1 i i -1 a a. A a i. I. I re.1 a n lowing Resolution for the one before the Senate and asked that the accompanying preamble to his substitute to read for information _ Wue acas Congress by a vote nearly unanimous passed tho following Resolution which expresses tho voice of the nation und is the True Standard of loyalty a a that tho present deplorable civil War has been forced upon tho country by the disunion ets of tho Southern states Nowin arms against tho constitutional government and in arms around tie Capitel that in this. National emergency Congress banishing a feeling More passion or resentment will recollect Only its duty to tho whole country that this War is not waged in their part in any spirit of oppression or for any purpose of Conquest or subjugation 9r. Purpose of overthrowing or interfering deputed not to represent the people in con gre8s, but to legislate for the Good of our constituents and the interests of Thoo Ommon wealth and that when these duties Are done ours Here ure ended. We Are to Prono to assume Superior Wisdom and forgetting to a a mind our own business a Drift into tho distracting current of National politics and and thereby neglect the interests of the state prolong our session and increase the already oppressive taxation upon the people. And 1 should not participate in the discussion upon this needless and As i deem it profitless question a Taro it not for certain that have fallen from senators who Havo in this Debato which i cannot suffer to puss unnoticed or.

Pull Well they know for Thoy Are taught by the is Tinct of self preservation in tho Prosono of Groat danger that tho agitation of any disturbing Issue whom the senator from Bradford alludes Oue of the progressive men of the Day a a an apostle of Liberty a declared that the party he represented Are Dis unionists and alluding to South Carolina said a a and Egypt will re Joice that Bhe Lias again he declared when addressing tho congregational society of Boston on the a a poetical lessons of the Ilour a that he was a disunion Man and was glad to see that South Carolina and other so Uther states had practically initiated a disunion movement. He hoped All the slave. States would leave the uni in and not stand upon the order of their going but go it onco. A cd again Adis Courso delivered Ubri the 21stof april last in Boston he said that a a Many times this Winter Horo and else where i Havo counselled peace urged As Well As i knew How tho expediency of a knowl edging a Southern confederacy and the peaceful thirty a or states one Oft Lejourn al announces to you that i come hero this morning to retract these opinions. No not Ono of Thorn i need them All every word Ilia pc spoken this Winter every not of Twenty live years of my life to make tho Wolo ume i give this War Hearty and now or. Speaker these Are the men thus uttering sedition and treason Olio Are leading in this crusade upon tho constitutional rights of Somo of the states of this Union Sheso Aro the men who Are driving this a entering i cannot follow where such apostles Lead. Nor does tho democratic party recognize their sir it is inexpedient because it will be additional evidence to be used by the Southern secession leaders to further Pervert and inflame the Southern mind. Prom the Days of the revolution when Northern and Southern blood commingled on a common Battle Field to establish our Independence there has been a deep and abiding attachment in tho Massos of tho South for our free institutions. Thoy looked upon the resplendent and beauteous Bun Norof Trio country As the Symbol of its protecting care and majesty. They saw it circling the Globe and to every citizen of tho Republic giving As ample Protection beneath its folds As Ever the roman Oagle did to him who could utter the proud declaration a a Lam a roman citizen they saw it the Symbol of the government a thrown about tho form of the exile Kosta and giving him Asho Street Hood Forth his hands to it snooty and Security from austrian tyranny. They saw Ito to tho uttermost fends of tho Earth opening tho Isles of tho sea to Commerce and civilization. With them around it Clung the same stirring recollections of the a past and the same glorious Hopes for the future. With this proud attachment for the institutions of tho country it required Moro than Ordinary moans to arouse the passions and jealousies of tho people and induce them with fratricidal hand to strike Down tho Host and freest government Over founded upon tho Foo of the Earth. But these Southern conspirators brooding Over treason for years found the Means at baud to a a fire the Southern mind a and strange As it May appear those Means Woro furnished by tho other of tremor upon this question of extremes met and joined hands in Kindred design. These Southern leaders in treason seized the Doola a rations of tho Northern abolitionists and by emancipation by Congress even if Duvli an act Ivas constitutional. It. Would certainly add to the exasperation of. Tho non Slavo Liolin Quot Whites South and might unite Thorn against the govern Mon and if so1 they would be . As matters.

Aim that they can no longer live in the Union with constitutional rights no in tie past that they Are to be reduced to a Stato of Vassalage that the Loyal As Well As disloyal Are to meet one common Fate much will have been accomplished for the failing cause of these rebel loaders. You will have United them in War will to lingering and protracted our increased National debt will be overwhelming and our taxation fearfully oppressive. Refuse to recognize the constitutional rights of the loyalist of tho . Tako Hack All the declarations of the inviolability of the rights guaranteed to them strike a blow at tho institutions recognized. By. State jaws drive them by oppression to a Union with traitors and this War will not end for years. In the end Thoy will be subjugated for what vast armies and navies and abundant financial resources live Dono in the past they can do in the future. You May then those men who Are Truo and Loyal now As partitioned a Jeand is subjugated always chafing it the chains that Hind her. You May hold them is Austria holds writhing Hungary but take Earo lost too like the hungarians to recover their right they do no carry menace to tho vory Walls of the Cape Tol of their oppressor. You May trample Thorn in the dust As was can sol Greece hut like her they May Rise in their despair to become a nation. You May in Thrall hem As was Italy by that Royal House which like to the Bourbon a neither Loams nor forgets a but a like Italy their condition May invoke tho sympathy of tho world and they Wake up to Beunie a people nid a Power on tho Oarth. A sir to cannot do wrong and Prosper there is a god of nations. We cannot Rob Loyal men of tho South although they he few and even though they be slaveholders of rights vested in them by tho same Constitution which protects us All without exposing ourselves to its Wrath. Then let us be most of artful sir lest in tho attempt to wrong Aud afterwards subjugate the struggling loyalists of the South to do not destroy our , and upon the wreck of constitutional government build a military despotism. A with All Faith would i have this War carried on in the spirit and manner and for tho objects indicated in tho Resolution offered in Congress by the venerable Crittonden which constitutes the preamble to the amendment i have offered and which was Reutel a few minutes Sinco by the Clork for tho information of tho Somite. I would carry the Power of tho government to the Aid of every Loyal Man of the South. I would Havo him protected in Ivory right that he has a citizen of tho Union und in accordance with tho Constitution. This tho government is bound to do. It is told that Llie Helios suffering under painful disease sought in his suffering the help of a distinguished surgeon. To was told that to bring rei Eif and cure the knife must to App lion. As tho Noble to of a Public profession was about to cuter on his duty to was Romin Dod by the Groat Cardinal to Zombor sir you operate upon the minister of Franco to b>3 memorable reply was made by him who so Well understood his Mission to humanity a your Emin Onoe the humblest patient in my Hospital is the prime minis Tor of France to Are so sir should tho same Dutiful care that is extended to the highest dignitary in tho land m the preservation of the constitutional right to Given in like manner to the humblest Loyal citizen whether in his Little Home in the Freo North or like the children of Tennessee a Patriot senator Hobo a fugitive in the mountains or a captive in a Southern prison. Follow tho policy i Havo just indicated and almost everywhere save perhaps in South Carolina you will find tho terrorized pc Plo when sure of Protection As on tho Muks of the Cumberland a greeting the old Flag with shouts of Joy and hailing it As aj��8�f�er.�?� i would the masses deluded by tho loaders in induced them to return to their allegiance but i would crush with merciless hand tho in Immediato authors of this insurrection. I would have the Constitution maintained As it is an not for the Sake of negro emancipation have a new Reading of the Law. A. New Constitution Quot and a new Union. This government was goo Lenough for the Mon who established it and it ought to be Good Chough for their posterity who have inherited it. If we Are not fighting to restore tho Union and preserve the Constitution what Are to struggling for if it is Only a crusade against slavery How have the Ensor Active masses of All parties professions and class who fill our army been missed How have . Hunn duped who rushed at the Call of the president a to Aid this Effort to maintain the Honor the integrity and existence of our National Union a with a Inore fiery Zeah and a. Holier enthusiasm than Ever impelled Knightly crusader to tho Rescue of the Seoul hero of our lord from the defiling touch of the infidel Saracen. If sir they arc to to diverted from this High purpose to support and extend abolition Fin Ati cism then Iii Doc has Rainy of six Hundred thousand men,.gathered Froni the Hills and valleys of tho North and West Trio grandest army Ever marshalled in the world a been enlisted under false pretences. Against this prostitution of the grand object of the War at the Detato of a philanthropy i protest in Trio Tiame of one third of the voting population of my own country who Havo Cne stored the ranks of our army i protest in the name of the thousands from the District i have tho Honor to represent on this floor who have gone out to contest for the perpetuity of fro government i protest in the name of tiie Constitution and on behalf of the people. A i have shown sir and it declared Oil this floor the proposed abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia was butt be a a entering negro emancipation and it is most apparent Tomt the Aioli tip a st Doc spot intend to. Stop in of Columbia. The prophecy of. The Tribune that a John Brown Dcarl is a Power in tho land a is to to verified an incite of a , tried convicted condemned and executed As a Felon is now to be canonized. This outlaw Whoso a flawless invasion a of debt and the Noros taxation upon nil classes of the people until in the language of tho senator from Erie everything will be taxed from a Otbo Radlo to the lot us make no Falso move now. To cannot afford to incur All tho dangers which i have pointed out without deriving a single advantage in return. A o our people jubilant Over Roanoke Henry Donolson and other victories that have recently crowned our arms Bogin to see that the Clouds arc breaking that the night of doubt is past and the sunlight of tho coining Day is upon us. But still to must not forget tho strength of treason. Tho armies of rebellion Are yet in the Field controlled by men of desperate fortunes who have staked their All in the mad Hopo of Success. Thou Why should we help them by legislation of this kind in the time of peril if a Jesse d. Bright or a Clement l. Lead offered a Resolution in a subject so manifestly calculated to distract and. Agitato the Public mind and impair the energies of. The government it would Havo Boon hero and elsewhere denounced As a deliberate attempt to Olivo Aid and Comfort to the enemy and perhaps the senator from Erie with his Cohilj Utora would make Libaste to have him expelled from the hulls of Congress. Hut tho obnoxious Moas Uro is introduced advocated and pressed to a conclusion by those who claim to to tho special keeper of the government and who Aro so Swift upon All occasions unruly to charge the democracy with sympathy with traitors. Aud How or. Speaker a Lew words in reply to the remarks of the senators from ale gli Euy and Bradford. Tho senator from al Allegheny. Or. Irish Lias Given us an extraordinary reason for the. Adoption of this Resolution. told that by so doing sym-3 excited for ii in Fuff Hirl a or. Lamberton i know it never occurred and yet upon the false Enmor that five Imi Nois regiments had Laid Down their a Nib or than debase them to a miserable foray in favor of negro emancipation to declared if to had the Power to would decimate them that he would shoo them Down As mutineers. Sir while lie was thus commending these men to the executioner and while his words Scro yet lingering in our cars they under the inspiring cry of the. Bravo and wounded Logan a a suffer death but never disgrace a were following the old Flag through flame and death up the height of Donelson to glorious Victory. Why sir n Cionglo company the color company of tho eleventh Illinois Rogi Mont entered upon that Battlo with eighty five Bravo hearted men and when the conflict was Over there was but seven left to an ewer at Roll Call. But these seven Lead brought Back with them tie Flag whose Honor it had a Cost so much to maintain. Such were the men rivalling in Valur those Ivhon fell at the pass of who Wero commended to tho executioner a -. S. Or. Speaker the one Hundred thousand a re in of our own state and All tho great army now fighting tho Battlo of free the Union went not Forth to contend for tho abolition of slavery. Sir theim is As holy a cause As Over led Brave men to tho Battle Fields. Of Fth Paliy would to. Excite door us in England. Is our deep debasement in pandering to the of that nation never to end ?

I would arrest tho Davies the Tomb sos tho masons and floyds of this insurrection. I would try them for treason convict and execute them. I would go further and visit just retribution upon the pestilent and rebellious City of Charleston the accursed nest where this treason was Hute hed. I would Seal its Harbor despite English protest and the Whito wings of peaceful Commerce no More shul do Flag upon its silent Waters.
