Through the kindness and partiality of my friends of the Stote of Indiana in convention assembled representing All the elements of the oppo Aibin to the present party in Power in the adn ministration of the affairs of the state. I have been nominated for tha office of governor and it has become my duty and it affords me great pleasure to be permitted to meet the people of Putnam county whom i have known for so Many years to announce to you my sentiment in reference to our Stote policy. Many of you have known me from my youth of you have known me since the Days of my childhood and i could but feel pleasure in meeting but the pleasure of this interview is not unmixed with painful considerations. I miss the kindly greetings of Many of my old friends who have gone hence some to seek Homes elsewhere in the amp a West and some to seek a Home in that far off and Quot Euodia covered country from whose Bourne no int eur i remember the faces of Mcgauhey. Of Roberts of Johnson of or. Cowgill and of Many other scarred veterans in the political contests of times gone by. Immense applause i am Here then for the purpose of Dis abusing your minds of prejudice if prejudice against me exists in reference to some of the exciting questions involved in the approaching contest. A re Soakai. Fla Rosm. The office to which i aspire a state office is always of Impo Runce to the people of the Stote. The constitutional Powers and duties devolving upon your executive Are important in their bearing for weal or for woe. Upon the interest of the million and a half of people now occupying the get Commonwealth of Indiana. To your a ecu be Are in tested Many High duties in the first Price to Aee that the Laws be sit fully executed and in this hour when treason is abroad in the land and the very air is darkened with rebellion it is Pecini warily important that the Laws Befu i fully executed. In do the relations of the stale of Indiana to her sister stotes if i should be elected your representative. I shall in a spirit of Courtesy and comity yield to All their just rights and. God being my Helper. I shall demand All the rights of the Commonwealth of Indiana and of All her citizens however Humble or exalted my be their condition. Long continued up Plause state fount. In reference to Stote policy the first thing that should attract our attention is the matter of Economy in our administration of Public affairs. The people Are overtaxed. That is not As it should be. Every Dollar of tax drawn from the pockets of the people for the purpose of corruption or extravagance is oppression and the government should be honestly administered with the utmost Economy that is consistent with the Public Well being. I believe the affairs of the state of Indiana have been grievously mismanaged by the democratic administration and i shall now proceed to show the truth of my assertion. A few year ago Congressa donated to the Stote vast Tracu of land known As the swamp lands. The were to be drained and the balance of income derived therefrom was to be set apart As a fund for the education of the children of the tour gov. Wright said in Many messages that after draining the swamp land thus even us. A million of dollars Widd remain As an educational fund. Now. Numen there a not a Dollar remaining in the Treasury from the swamp land a million of dollars has been squandered under democratic Rule or Miaria a. One of two Thinn then must be True. Either governor wrist did not understand when he made this assertion what the lands were Worth or be waa endeavouring to deceive you in reference to their value. We All believe that he did know this thing he was familiar with All the interests of the state. Then if he had uie Means of knowing and was honest and with All his fault he always held the interest of Indiana dear to his heart he is shirely a Good witness even to my Brothers of the democratic party and we have proved that there was to be a million of dollars but it Haa gone inhere i cannot Tell you Are told sometimes by democratic oratory that every Blessing Ever showered upon this country past present and to come is owing to the democratic party if the Sun shines or the Dew Falls from heaven it is by the favor of tha democratic party particularly. Now just ask them of the swamp land fund. There is a million worse than gone for it has been used As i believe to corrupt and demoralize the politics of the Stote.

My position Here a Fiat of a Publio prosecutor. I arraign these men of Thia party with the ample for my witnesses and a a a idiot of guilty guilty will shake the country at the october election. Look at another Fiat tor. At the extra kit a of your legislature and again at Ito regular meeting. Gov. Willard recommended the a Stool ashment of another Penitenti a. The legislature passed a Law Carr Yim out the recommendation. Gov. Wilfurd in weapon a panted three democratic commissioners to carry out that us a commissioners of his own selection and party. These men examined different Sites with a View to the Kimation and reported but gov. Wilhard refused to carry out his own Law tied tha he Ida of his up Printces. And at this time the Penitentiary a not located and cover for Willard says it shall not be during Bis administration. If this Ware a recommendation of anybody but himself there might be some excuse for it but he first recommends the establishment in two messages and after the expenditure of Many thousand dollars be refuses to carry out his own Law. I thought at first he was in error but having considered Over the matter somewhat i am satisfied that he is Correct for if the be publican party grows and Wells in the coming six months As it has in the half year just ended we shall not need even one Penitentiary in Indiana. App Tase and Mitch laughter i might cite you to other misdeeds of the democratic party. I might show you that the constitutional rights of the Stote were stricken Down by the insolent corrupt. And unconstitutional decision of s party majority in the Senate of the United stotes. But Appeal from Caesar drunk to Cesar sober Quot Here is the popular sovereignty to which i Appeal i Appeal to the people to rectify All these evils and All these wrongs. National fat tabs. So much in reference to state there Are other Laws effecting the interests of the people of the Stote to which my attention will be Given during the canvass. Inasmuch As this is the year of the presidential election and As upon the result of that election will the result of this depend a inasmuch As the two Are inseparably connected in their interest and Public sentiment i shall for a few Momento detain you in reference to the subject of general policy. The it charge is made that the party with which it is my pleasure to act is in abolition party. Test is the first Cha go. Old whigs. I Call upon you and make you my witnesses. Do Youh member when Henry Clay was called an abolitionist in Kentucky do you remember when general Taylor was called an abolitionist do you remember when Gen. Scott the Gallant hero who received Bis training in Fields of Battle was denounced As an abolitionist simply because he refused to Bow to the false god of the democracy in 1852? this charge has been the standing Sta of All their speeches and Standard for the Imit Twenty five years. My fellow citizens of Putnam county. I propose o give Yod my opinion to show you that opposition to the democracy is not abolitionism and i shall be very unfortunate if i do not succeed in drawing the distinction. That Man who does not know the difference Between republicanism and abolitionism to Day cannot surely exercise the elective franchise with any degree of intelligence. What is our position first in reference to slavery just this we abide by All the compromises of the Constitution and if the most extreme southerner in Carolina would be Here he would ask no More than this. The Constitution of the United stotes is much talked about and that Constitution touches the question of slavery at three Points and at three Points under it the slave Trade was not to he abolished prior to the year 1802. That Compromise was honestly carried out and its term expired by Ite own limitation. Under the Constitution for the purposes of taxation and representation in Congress the slaves of the South were counted in the proportion of three to five. Against that no objection was made. Another proposition was that fugitives from service in the slave stotes. Might be reclaimed in the free states of the country a fugitive slave Law was. In other words provided for. Upon that subject i desire not to be misunderstood for i would not if i could obtain the vote of any individual by false Pic fences. To be your governor High As that office is. For he i cannot take it or any office if the toking involves falsehood or the loss of self respect. Tai Troi tiv slate Law. There Are provisions in that Law for which i should not have voted had i been in Congress but the supreme a part has decided it to be constitutional and is to be enforced. I believe the fugitive slave Law of 1793. Approved by Gen. Washington. Is equally effective and much Leas odious than the existing he. You discover any abolition in that does any Democrat discover it does any Man who deserves to be outside of a Lunatic Asylum or Penitentiary make a charge of against that or a Liecbt. I am an abolitionist it is said because i propose to restrict the Extension of slavery. Gentlemen i stand where Henry Clay stood. I erect no new alters. I in Traduce no new form of worship. He said Quot no earthly Power shall induce me to vote for a specific measure of the introduction of slavery where it had not before so say i. And i aay with him that no human Power shall Ever compel me to interfere with slavery where it legally existe in the different stotes by virtue of local Law. I prefer free institutions because i am Here to enjoy them. The people of Kentucky. Tennessee and Carolina prefer their slave institutions that is their business and not mine and we have no right no Power and no disposition to meddle with them. There is the extent of my abolitionism. I am willing to stand upon the platform of the Quot great whose memory we so much Revere. And whole name we to love. Let that sentiment non Extension of slavery into the territories of the United stotes Quot blazon upon every Banner and Awell every Battle cry until the october election. Is there any abolitionism in All this what a the historical connection of the diff rant parties of the United stotes in respect to this question of slavery help by s Bina. A word Here lest i forget it. Some thing has been said of Helper a Book. I never endorsed the Book i refused to subscribe for the Book i never read the Book but i Bava read extracts from it which i never could endorse. Good god do i desire to stir up civil War in Kentucky where the ashes of All my blood relations lie no. Air we have no right to interfere with Kentucky and i have no auth desire. So much for the Helper Book. Slat but and Patti is. What waa the connection in times Paat of the democratic party with this controversy about slavery you Are familiar with the argument but the risk of fatiguing you to the contrary nitwit Bstanding. I must re a ambulate somewhat. Before the adoption of the present Constitution. Slavery was an exciting element in american politics Stormy debates were had on it in the old Congress from 1784 to 1787. The of st proposition was by or. Jefferson to exclude slavery from the territories. That proposition failed to receive the votes of a majority of two thirds of the Congress. In 1827 the proposition was introduced by Nathan Dane of Massachusetts and it became a Law and we Are Here or the most of us Are. Because that ordinance did pass because we prefer free institutions. I Appeal to the Gentilc kilns who Are seated around me. To Tell me Why Are you Here simply because slavery was not Here. Did you leave Kentucky because the re were More Noble souls on Earth d id you leave because you could find better society upon the Earth than existe there Are there any men More Noble than the Pioneer descendants of Boone and of Hardin and those other men who brought the a and the bib a and general civilisation into the Stote no. Sirs Tou left Kentucky because you preferred free institutions. That is the reason you must give. Heretofore this question has assumed when agitated always a sectional aspects not wholly sectional perhaps before to be inst thirty Yee ers. The ordinance of 87 was passed however by the United voice and votes of North and South and under that ordinance this country was devoted to the interest of Freedom it was made by that one act the noblest residence for freemen which the munificence of a kind Providence Ever spread upon the Earth. Tou Are satisfied with it. You would not Banee it if you had the Power. If then you do not desire to change your own institutions to make slavery prevail Here have you a right a moral i by to extend the evil which you would resist Over the Virgin soil of our territories in 1820, however the ordinance of 1787 having been in Force for More than thirty years a controversy arose again upon the subject of slavery and another Compromise was entered into that slavery should not extend beyond the parallel of 36 Deg. 30 min. We Are now. Told that that waa unconstitutional. Look to the evidence upon that Point. Every Congress from the organisation of the government to 1864, directly or indirectly sanctioned the constitutionality of the ordinance of 17s7. The supreme court sanctioned it. The supreme court of Louisiana and the court of appeals of Kentucky sanctioned it for it was decided that if a kentuckian took a slave to Ohio the Lave became free because the ordinance of 1787 freed him. Slave stoles made this decision under the better Days and the Palmiert Days of Kentucky when the voice of Quot the Gre at com Moner Quot was omnipotent in fashioning Kentucky Institute fans. The same was sanctioned by every president Washington inclusive. To Pierce himself. Almost the first act of Congress under Washington re affirmed the ordinance of 1787. By which slavery was forever excluded from the North West territory. The territory of Indiana was organized under Jefferson. Was be a Democrat go to the declaration of Independence visit the grave at Monticello read the history of your country he was the very High priest and apostle of democracy when democracy meant Devotion to human rights and did not mean the surrender and sacrifice of human rights. In the organization of Indiana of Ohio of Michigan slavery was excluded. Congress first passed the Laws and your presidents approved of them and now you. Are told that the whole thing is unconstitutional that that get secret which was hidden from Washington and Jefferson and Jackson was reserved for revelation in the dress of Quot Little giant Quot of Illinois is it not pas8ing,.str�nge that until 1854 no such doctrine prevailed in the country this very ordinance of 18, the Missouri Coiner Mno a. Was tii muted to or. Monroe Alid. By him to Hia Cabinet and that Cir it decided unanimously in favor of the Constitution Ity 4>f the measure. In order however to make that precedent binding we must see by whom it was mide. Who first was James Lonroe you recollect the Bistry of Brandywine and Germantown. And the con flip to Irlich reddened the shores of a in Schuylkill. He was a lieutenant there. He submitted the question to Bis pc out. Crawford of Georgia was Hiss retry of the of usury. And Yon will remember him As one of the most distinguished patriots of the South. Wirt a distinguished gentleman from the Stote of Yir Nia whose name is synonymous with purity of character and elevated statesman ship was his attorney general and John Quincy Adams Quot the old Man was his secretory of Stock. By this Compromise the controversy was settled and remained a closed question until 1850. When by the acquisition of mexican territory growing out of the mexican War the slavery is be was again opened and what were called the Compromise measures of 18s0 were passed. We Are told now. That actor those measures passed that the Missouri Compromise was certainly unconstitutional and should be broken Down. Clay waa interrogated by or. Cooper of Pennsylvania if there was anything inconsistent with the Missouri Compromise in his measures of 1850, and he said that no such thins had entered into his heart to conceive. More than that the Missouri Compromise was expressly reaffirmed in one of the Compromise Meas uses of 1850. But you Are told they did not pretend to enact the Wilmot proviso. What a the truth about that in refer Eure to that matter or. Clay it Roduco a series of solutions out of which the Compromise measures grew. The second was to the effect that inasmuch As slavery or in voluntary servitude did not exist in the mexican territory therefore it waa unnecessary to extend the Wilmot proviso to those territories. The inference is irresistible that if it had existed their he would have proposed Ito exclusion. His position was the same As or. Webster so that As slavery was not there under the Law of Mexico it could not exit there without positive local Law and consequently that it was unnecessary to my anything about it. On that basis the Compromise measures passed. One of those Compromise measures was i to be Texas ten millions of dollars for her claim to a county that she had no earthly or heavenly title to and one of the provisions of the Bill was to exclude shivery from the territory acquired. Is it not Strang then that we Are old that the Compromise of 1820 was inconsistent with this Fater Compromise. When we find it re enacted in Titis very Bill. In 1852. In an evil hour for the Honor and glory of this democratic atty met at Baltimore and nominated one r. Pierce general Pierce a Man equally distinguished As a civilian and As a Soldier. The convention resolved they would discourage All agitation upon the subject of slavery in or out of Congress. The whig party then met and gentlemen permit me Here to say one thing i was proud of that old party. I am not Here to resurrect it but if necessary to shed tears Over it. It was the purest organization since the Days of the revolution. Applause the whig party in their convention at Baltimore. Resolved upon the same things that they would discount Enante the station of the subject of slavery. Two years rolled round and Stephen a. Douglas introduced into Congress the measure that began the agitation by doing that which no Man of the South or North had asked for by doing that which he had said but a few Short months before he hoped no ruthless hand would Ever do. He brought in a measure to repeal the Missouri Compromise. For what purpose was this to Inaugurato a new system he told us by which the people in the territories could form and regulator their own institutions in their own Way for a few Momento let us see what that stump speech injected into the Bod i that Bill Means. What Are the positions of the three parties now upon the subject of slavery in the territories the opposition believes that Congress has the Power to govern the territories we believe that Congress has that Power which was exerted under the administration of Washington and every subsequent president As i have shown you a Power which has the Sanction of seventy Myra uninterrupted experience. That is what we believe. Why not sin ply because the government has acquiesced in this practice for seventy years but on the ground that there is an express Grant in the Constitution to con Gress of this authority. The Constitution provides that Quot the Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make All needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other progeny belonging to the United under that authority it was the. Opinion of Clay and Webster and the great constitutional lawyers of the psst age that the Power to govern the territories necessarily resulted. The Power to govern the territories results inevitably from another pro vision. Congress representing the sover eighty of the country the nationality of the Republic is Only known through the action of Congress the supreme Power the right to acquire territory is nowhere else and if they have the right to acquire territory it is perfectly absurd to say that they May not a to for its government. The opinion of the democratic party As represented by James Buchanan is that the Constitution of the United totos carries slavery into All the territories of the United slates without local Law. And he says in his late message that neither the Congress of the United stotes nor the supreme court nor a territorial legislature nor any human Power can exclude slavery from a territory. There is the opinion of James Bic Nan. The position of Douglas As i understand it. Is that a majority of tha people cannot exclude it but they can make the place to hot by unfriendly legislation that slavery cannot stay there. Now How does it happen that popular sovereignty does or can attach to the people of a territory when the people cannot organise a territorial legislature without an act of Congress we Are told that California did. Not so fast gentlemen califor Nia never went through to e prot is of territorial org Iniz Alion so she cannot be quo Tod in favor of popular sovereignty. Let us compare the opinions of the two fragments of the democratic party on this subject. Buchanan says that shivery is already in the territories. Douglas says in his Harper article that it can never exist there without local Law to protect it. Yet gentlemen toll us democracy is the same thing everywhere. Well it has something everywhere. It is rather a mein institution everywhere. Loud applause and much laughter that is the Only identity it has. Applause Douglas and All his friends Here and everywhere i suppose resist what is called a slave code for the territories and the people of the South in Sist upon it. These latter say that the Constitution by Ito own Force carries Shi very into the territories whether the peo pie want it or not. And that it is the duty of Congress to protect it. If the one position is True the other is equally so. If the Constitution does Harry slavery into the territory in a the people of the South Are right. The fallacy of the arg meat consists in the fact that the Constitution does not carry Quot the Peculiar institution Quot any where but does protect it where it exists by virtue of local his. John Bbown. But something has been said of a Oer Tain John Brown who figured rather conspicuously at Harper s ferry. In refer enee to his unfortunate attack upon har per s ferry and on the people of Virginia i Bave but few words to describe my Opin Ion. Those words Are Quot murder and trea he was a Felon and very pro diet a Felon a Oom. Long continued applause and cholera for there is my opinion non 4be sii beet of John Brown. .1 do not Fidel in any Way responsible for Bis act. I have taught no doctrine which led to any such result. The re pub i lican party has it taught no auth Doet Rioe. It a a perhaps Safe for the do socratic party to aay that the Republican party did so but it it not Safo for any member of thai party to say that any individual did Toi if Auch a charge la preferred against me i by re As answer in Good Anglo Sozou dialect ready Quot it a Fri Avstri. Bar Orson or Owolab. For seventy years the Tel stories Wei settled Pei fifty. But in �8s4,. When Douglas it used the Bill to Rej a be Mia Sonin Comaromi and from that my ment civil War strip and Contention re ged upon the Plains of Kansas and a Virv drop of blood that the soil of Kari a do knit to reddens upon the skirted Dougl there is a holy Retro Butkiw that will of Law him. To Reward Himfy a of by to blood thirty ambition which led him to lose Ais of Liia country and Hia country s Good. That be. Might be promoted to the preside dim chair. That is my whole View in Brief upon the slavery controversy. . I wish now to speak in a oboe to a few other things pertaining to tha demo Oratio Par for the Huit few Yearb in reference to the extravagant in Migacy Aud corruption of Jamea Bol Banan and a administration. Six Yeara ago the Treasury of the United Statos was overflowing so much so Thatah ter Outing All the appropriations the secretory of the Treasury had to advertise for bold ref the Public securities to Home Forward and a paid a Premium for receiving their Money. Within the last three years the administration has had to create a debt of 950,000,000, and this too without providing any Means of payment when a prudent Man makes a debt he should if he honest provide the Means for the payment then of. Has the democratic party done any auth thing in the a Guage of Quot the discipline Quot the democratic party has created a debt without having a res Saable Prospect of Over pay a bit it. By he the debt Ezi Ateyat All the is one fruitful source of corruption in i sas. It waa Neces Sair to Send an army of three thousand armed soldiers to Kansas to do what to enable the people of Kan in the Hin Guage of the Kansas Nebraska Bill to form and regu Hito their Domestic in excessive for. Fear that they would not do this thing three thousand armed troops Are sent there to make the people do As they please. F a voice Quot hit hip again Quot much some apply use that a a strange dem Nistra tion it seems to to. A voice Quot a democratic i me six or eight millions were spent to Force the Lecompton Constitution big odious As it was reeking is it was it i Rita of pts on bad stained with by the a a a Jef of a ,. We resistor it your members of Congress rested it. And for that we and they ire abolition Sta. If i know myself. I love the Constin ution of my country bad the Union of Thi a state i Van note the fathers of the Republic to whom we owe this Rich inheritance of. Civilisation free Dom and glory which Benei our common country and i would not. Austain their action by going athwart All their teachings by forcing on an Una riling people a a Ensti tuition that they never much the pm Sage of the English Bill Cost the cd it Vermit get it no one will Knopf until the great Day of final in court. I must remind of Here that we due not now at the beginning of i pm at our banners sail aloof in to numb and we Are now to receive the Fruite of that Triumph if we Are but True to ourselves and if we do not give up ourselves to ask impracticable thin and to go off to sympathise with treason and on order. Bur to continue. Way this debt a there is the , at a Cost of about nine or tin Sill Iowa Urith what re suit is mormonism Lem prevalent now than when the contest commenced in the dead of Winter four Thoumy troops were marched across the wild Niess Todo what to put Down what or. Buchanan said the territory waa is a Sib to of rebellion. Well after sending these men there at an expense of nine millions of Dollare it suddenly struck him that. He had better,4send commissioner and Aee if rebellion Aid exist. His sent governor Powell of Kentucky. Ind , of ten ii see and to lib a saw Brigham Young stayed All night Aad Mads peace in the morning before breakfast and or. Buchanan backed Down from his proclamation gentleman we owe that to democracy As Well As the Bright Sun Shine which Cove re the Earth this Day. Laughter and great applause now look to the Paraguay expedition where Buchanan sent All the armament he could raise by Laud or by sea into the Center of South America at in expense of millions upon millions. What a As the trouble Down there a Yankee Captain undertook the navigation of the River Amazon and from the Shore Home of the Tawny sons of South America made up of Nigger. Indian dutch and Iriah. Fired on his ship. He claimed Damium. Fwu Buchanan sent Bis m9b there for what a Well i Dun t know but tha half Iii aked people by their to pay ton thousand dollars images and we paid out several millions to get it.
