Indianapolis Old Line Guard (Newspaper) - October 16, 1860, Indianapolis, IndianaThe Constitution the Union and the Equality the states vol. , ind., tuesday october 16, 1860. No. 39.the old line a a n. I3e5 je2 ass. A a to i , Indiana. My Eudek a . T in 3ve a until after the Previd Colial election. In Advance in All cases. Advertisements inserted the usual rates. Extracts from the speech theron. Franois s. Bartow. We extract tie following passages from the address the Hon. Francis Bartow a Union whig delivered Savannah Georgia the 17th september 1860, to the Union men his native county in my expectation the action the Charleston convention i was disappointed and the country was disappointed. The a outliers democracy were circumvented by trickery and cunning As they assert. Or. Douglas and his friends were there wit i a determination to have Liim no Borly to Rule ruin. The Southern men had demanded the recognition one simple principle indisputable the Protection property by a government organized for no outlier purpose. This simple proposition was denied and Lioy were a told that . Douglas would not recognize and that i nobody but . Douglas should be their nominee. They had no alternative but to leave a convention j thus hostile to the plainest j principles Justice and propriety. I have but one Tault to find with them instead going Back to Baltimore i wish they had then and there when their rights were denied Asem bled in Charleston proclaimed their principles Nom Ina Ted their candidates appealed to the South for Whoie constitutional Rigits they were contending and to the Justice the american people to come to the support those i principles and those candidates who a would have been National in so far As Justice and the i Constitution could make them National. Continued j App use pursuing that action which in their judg j ment the exigency demanded they went to Baltimore i and after making an unsuccessful Eilbert to have their i principles recognized they were compelled to form a separate convention consisting the fifteen Southern states Oregon California and a Large portion the Northern and Eastern states comprising in my judgment the Sti length the demo i Atic party where i they made a declaration Clear constitutional Prin a files with which you Are All familiar and presented to the country As the candidate for the presidency an Able Gallant and High toned gentleman Kentucky a applause a and for the vice presidency a Gallant Soldier and pure hearted citizen Oregon. Applause now is True i might have said Quot you have done what i wanted you Todo you have affirmed Correct principles you have presented personally unobjectionable candidates but you have not done in exactly the Way that i wished. Your party has been divided is split into contending factions and the Union sentiment that was so much needed has not been i might have remained aloof from this controversy. I was not bound to vote for their candidates but could i with consistency a could i with Honor could i with the very words i had uttered my lips say to them Quot i won vote for your candidates because they Are sectional your party has broken up is divided into two discordant hostile Camps you Are pouring hot shot into each other. I a will take advantage the Opportunity you thus present to gratify my feelings revenge Abr past animosities i have now a Chance in the midst your belligerent Contention to raise my party Flag and to carry to Victory by reason your divisions i can slip in possibly my candidates even by minority votes principles no principles i see the Road to Power and i shall follow As All other parties have done and probably will do whenever the time is appointed Quot no was not in my heart to say these things. Applause i had no party ends to accomplish and if i had that Way doing never would have occurred to me. Continued applause these men had done just what i wanted them to do just what i had told them to do and when i had so told them i was sincere. I wanted to unite them in a common cause in a common declaration principles which i thought vital to the South if we Ever expected to preserve our Equality our Honor. Applause now the question was shall i go to them should they come to me ? is said they might Well in the situation in which the democratic party was have rallied around the Banner Bell and Everett that these gentlemen were already in the Field but i cannot think so. If i am right Iii the first part my argument Bell and Everett and their party presented no ground upon a which i an rally for principles could be made. I had no House to invite my friends to. I had no entertainment to offer them. I was myself like them looking for some place Refuge some fortress where we could make a stand against the foe who were everywhere in every Section and now in every party leading their battalions upon us. Great applause 1 say again that in these observations i speak for myself and myself alone. Other gentlemen who support messes. Bell and Everett May not stand in my position they May not have entertained my opinions they May not have acted my principles. To to is a question principles somewhat personal Honor to them May not be. I can Well understand that Many them having in no Way expressed any opinions sympathies attached by Long habits hostility to opposition to everything that is democratic named democratic May honestly rejoice and take Adan j Tage the divisions their ancient enemy. For this class i have no intention to make any imputation their motives actions. I speak but for myself. If j the party to which i have been attached had pro-1 claimed the principles to which such importance is af-1 fixed and had presented candidates to the country upon those principles i would have adhered to those candidates and i would justly have expected that Devotion to principle would have brought the present party Breckinridge to us. The Case being reversed the opposition party Georgia having Oft times pledged i themselves to support that party which did stand upon such principles if their own party failed to recognize a them consistency requires in my judgment that i should adhere to the a edges thus made. Applause but worse than this i ask you with what consistency a with what Honor with what truth can i turn round these Southern democrats and charge them with sectional ism with disloyalty to the Union with treason to the country because they had done the very thing that i wanted them to do and were advocating the very principles that i said were right and had opposed the very Man . Douglas that i thought All others except . Lincoln was most unworthy the presidency ? am i to be branded As a disunion is for sustaining principles which i have been assiduously aging upon the country for four years applause this is a sad chapter in our history and almost induces me to despair the country. a time like this when fanaticism stalks Abib and through the land when the abolitionists in the Republic from the Atlantic to the Pacific Are proclaim my the Quot irrepressible conflict Quot when a treasonable party has Possession the House representatives Washington when they Are about to take Possession the government the country and Are Only waiting for that event to carry into execution their Long Chen shed designs upon your property your Industry your peace the Security your lives your Honor and your Independence How can you ignoble Wrangle among your selves when a common danger requires a Union every hand and every heart ? great applause we should be thus United. There should be but one sentiment. We should present one unbroken rank and say to our enemies come you will find us a band Brothers ready to meet you we Quot know our rights and knowing dare maintain them Quot great applause but instead this language we hear weak and ignoble . Section lists Dis unionists party spirit still represses the nobler impulse courage and patriotism. Suppose there Are Dis unionists in the South Are they so because they do not love the country May not be that they do love the land their birth ? these men have lost All Hope the Union they think i forbearance has been exercised until has ceased to be a virtue. They exclaim with sincerity in the words Patrick Henry Quot gentlemen cry peace peace but there is no loud applause i May not agree with these ardent men but i will not falsify my own feelings by abusing them for saying what in my heart i am often obliged to feel. Applause does not your blood now hotly through your veins when you recall the wrong Sand insults you have been made to endure ? if there be violence feeling intemperance expression who is responsible for who but the assailants our Lonor and our interests ? who but those who have proclaimed us Recreant to immunity who now declare a War against us thac shall never cease who have kindled the fires Servile War who deaf to reason and reckless consequences arc determined to govern us by a hostile administration which shall they say be Able to la our institutions in the dust and reduce us to subjugation. Loud and Long continued applause i will not mingle in one common censure the defenders our rights with their assailants. I have not the same execration for the Midnight Assassin and his bleeding victim. There is a right and a wrong in this matter. There Are not two parties equally obnoxious but one and one Only which has caused those Quot Clouds to lower our ap-1 Plause j i do not to link that action should Ever be the result j Mere passion. A change government a r�volu-1 ton a dissolution Are not Light things to be lightly j spoken . To blot from the heavens this glorious Cotest collation associated states Send them wan i Derma in perplexed and clashing orbits would ovoid cast All nature Slih gloom. Every Hill and Vale j throughout our glorious land would o.=e its Sunshine i and take the hues mourning. All Good and pure j Hopes and principles through Lieut the world would feel i the Shock this great calamity. We owe Nuich to i our present greatness Emch to our past struggles \ much to the Hopes the future. Our duties require calmness reason and deliberation. But surely we Are j not to shrink faint hearted from the View examination our condition. No let us meet and coun Sel together Ami be prepared for whatever necessity shall Force upon us. Let age bring its Wisdom and exper Leuce manhood its matured strength and youth its ardor and Tims with a Clear conscience in the sight Man and god March Forward our Mission. In the mean time i implore you men the South do not alienate your affections from each other. Do not turn upon each other the denunciations which Spring from the bitter fountains party spirit. Are you willing to lie Down forever in silent despair ? have you become a nation cowards ? shall we not even speak our wrongs declare our rights for fear we shall Ait use our adversaries to increased activity and fresh aggressions loud applause this would indeed be a Mournful condition our life. Will you then still Call us faction lists and traitors ? i will not help to kindle the fires spread the flames but if be sectional i will stand by my Section in her hour peril and i will not reproach those unjustly whose indignation May pass the Bounds whenever the South my own state takes a stand where reason should confine . Loud applause will be impossible for me to vote for . Douglas. I will not help him to Divide us. Nor can i give any Aid countenance directly indirectly to his Par to Quot. Applause if there Are any Here who agree Avith my in the Princl Les i have advocated and yet Aid sustain Douglas i have nothing to say to them. If i bad no other reason for refusing to support i. Bell is enough that both . Bell and his leading supporters prefer . Douglas to Jar. Breckinridge and denounce him and his friends As sectional. If i have any allies they Are in the Breckinridge Camp and 1 will sink swim with them though i be branded As a traitor. Tremendous applause i was with them principle before this fight commenced and i will not desert them now. If i had no other reason for this Alliance and i wished to build up Mountain High my objections to . Douglas i could not but oppose him since his recent speech Norfolk and new York. Applause i have never that i remember expressed any opinion what is Tenned the right secession. I was a Union Man in the controversy 1850, believing then As i believe now that there was no such client cause for the disruption the government. I have not liked to talk about secession disunion but whatever be however May be called revolution disruption secession i will stand with her. Immense applause and i think if the Quot Little giant Quot comes Here with the cohorts Lincoln to reduce us to submission there will be manhood enough in the South to drive him and them Back a Little quicker than they came. Continued applause the Quot Little giant Quot i take will not prove a very formidable Warrior. I suppose they Cau him the Quot Little giant Quot to distinguish him from those men now gone who lived in the Day when there Wei e giants in the land. Loud applause this Union can never be kept together by Force. No statesman could conceive such an idea. The Only Choi is that can bind Are the Cboins love. When these fail its vital and essential Organisak fails. Why do you wish to vote for . Douglas not for his principles for they Are condemned by All the authority the Republic in the past and the present by the Wisdom the Senate and the learning the Bench. Not for Power spoils for Don you know that he can Cany a solitary state in the Union a applause a least that is the probability. I do not tii Ink he can get ten thousand votes in Georgia. He May help Lincoln Bell. Is that your object Southern democrats you will not vote for him surely account his j personal dignity because you think he will adorn the chair your presidents. In my opinion he has degraded the dignity the Senate and the nation by dragging the presidential office in the Arena the demagogue by running Over the country impelled by mad ambition to advocate his claims in contempt Quot every precedent and in disregard every propriety. Loud applause see Bim lately in Jones Wood City new York a Barbecue i wasted oxen displaying himself like a mount Bank before a Choice audience such As like to gather around the Quot benecia boy Quot talking about enforcing states should they dare to i exist the reign abolition and to make the farce Complete he holds before him while uttering these sentiments like a puppet in his hands the candidate for the vice presidency our Georgia Champion who ten years ago fed fire proclaimed secession As the rightful remedy and poured contempt upon us poor Union submission rats that Day. Immense applause no my friends if you wish to vote for principle if you wish to vote for Union if yom wish to vote for Suc cd is i counsel you to vote for Breckinridge. Applause he has unquestionably the affections the South and is the representative her rights. What we want is Union among ourselves had we Only this we could command Success throughout the nation. Unquestionably Douglas has no Southern strength. He can Cany no sout Liem state. He can Only Divide us still More than we have been and until be healed in vain will be our efforts either to command respect obtain Justice. With your Sens Lesii wrangling in the face threatening Dan Ger you Are like the athenians when Philip was pre prevent the mind that Man who Aring to enslave them talking instead acting. Quot is could advise vindicate such a course must be filled Philip dead Quot Quot no but he is Quot what is Mth the infernal passions hatred and revenge to you Quot exclaimed Demosthenes Quot whether Philip be 1 have answered what i believe is truly embraced dead sick you who by your senseless divisions in the questions before me but i now reply to the would soon i Alse up another Philip even if this question As though tie words Quot they the Southern were taken a states Quot meant Only the Cotton states.

Perhaps be As Well to examine this ques questions to re Ard Abraham Lineo n As the head and to a still further and Endeavor to determine whether exponent the Republican and abolition factions Ould be Best to advise and vindicate resistance by and his Elevation to the presidency As identical with Ofano one state. This was not the Possession by these factions the executive de the question addressed to . Do alas. was the apartment the United states. This part Mav be j u recession the Southern states Quot which he thou rat characterized further As an unconstitutional action a jute to advise Abraham Lin Cobi Quot to resist United by fanatical crusading and agrarian sentiments in a system aggression the equal rights the people the Sou Fiern states. Giving to the question this construction i am still the opinion that would be unwise in the Southern states to secede upon his election because i believe that Iti the Union we would still have left to us the Means constitutional resist Ince to the aggressions this faction. We would still have in the Senate the United states a majority opposed to the principles and doctrines the abolitionists and without the consent the army and Halter were the remedies proposed by him Quot to prevent the secession tie Southern states Quot least that is what i understand to be his position. If then any one the Southern states should secede upon tie election Lincoln and he should employ Force the Bayonet and Halter to coerce such states Back into the Union such an act would ultimately in my opinion involve the whole country in civil War. A statesman Shodd adopt his measures to., 1 1,1 the occasion. He should not provoke War when he that body no Law could be passed. A e have also the a uld More justly and easily give us peace. He should supreme court the United states whose opinions Alm Wise acid just when dealing with the passions have been clearly announced As favourable to the i have already expressed the opinion that maintenance the constitutional Equality both As to to regain in the Union than for All rights person and property the citizens he Southern states to secede believing that two every state and Section the Union. This High Tab thirds the conservative voters Are with us and Unal have the Honor indicating the Constitution against unconstitutional legislation. They can annul any act legislation in opposition to the Constitution the United states bearing upon the rights the people. In addition to the Senate and the supreme court we have also a majority the voters the United states opposed to the faction which Lincoln is the head. In the last presidential election Fremont received Only 1,341,514 votes whilst Buchanan received 1,838,232 a otes and Fillmore 874,707 votes. The votes Buchanan and Fillmore United properly representing the conservative strength in this country Are More than double that Fremont to wit 2,712,-839, to 1,341,514 votes. If Lincoln then is elected president the United states will be an instance one third the voters by their United action controlling two thirds who for the present Are weakened and divided by the ambition the passions and prejudices politicians. By remaining in the Union therefore is Clear that we can maintain Yurcon Stith knowing that we still hold the Senate and supreme court. Much less would i encourage advise secession to any one Southern state and thus perhaps involve All the friends that state in the dangers civil War. But in Case any one Southern state should secede rash and imprudent As the act might be no True Friend his country could in my opinion advise the head an aggressive unconstitutional party to use Force the army Navy and the Halter not to prevent aggressions by that state but its peat Elul secession. How much belter would be to remonstrate and negotiate for years than for Congress to raise and equip a sufficient array for Lincoln and the abolitionists to conquer subdue drive Back and keep in the Union a state detain lined secession unaccompanied with any act Quot aggression upon the rights others a who does not see that in a War Between the North and the Southern Stales defending what be considers her constitutional rights the ii gun will be the sin real Fri a pvn Ltd to with and government.

If they were to secede from the Union Quot a ism the inauguration Abraham Lincoln before any overt act was committed against their constitutional rights Quot there would remain in the Union eighteen Northern states. is now asked whether i would Quot advise the eighteen Northern state remaining in the Union to employ Force to prevent the secession the fifteen slave states Quot if Force was employed without my advice whether i would Quot vindicate Quot its propriety. This i take to be the True meaning the question and to i respond that i would neither Quot advise nor vindicate resistance by Foree to prevent the secession the Southern would in my opinion be the greatest act Folly Ever committed the Earth for the eighteen Northern states to attempt to raise a Force sufficient to subdue and coerce into the Union to Quot prevent the secession the Southern an army 250,000 men would not be sufficient to accomplish the bloody work our subjection. Abraham Lncoln with a army 250,000 men his command would pay but Little attention to the constitutional rights his own Section much less to ours. Death with multiplied horrors would be preferable to submission association with such a dictator Over the citizens a constitutional Republic. A War indefinite duration would be the result such advice and such a policy. A civil and Servile War extermination and subjection would take the place an Union love for the Protection the Mutual rights each Section. The fierce and unbridled passions War would supersede and destroy the arts peace and the Only constitutional Republic the Earth converted into a military Lawless and despotism. Negotiation Twenty fifty one Hundred years nay Pema Hent separation would be vastly preferable to such a War Quot advised Quot and waged Quot to every four Yeai son the eve the presidential election we hear the outcry the politicians about the Quot Catholic the very name is an insult to the Catholic Boily besides being based upon a calumny. The epithet implies and is probably meant to imply that catholics All vote together moving in unison like a flock sheep under the guidance their Shepherd. This is a Patent slander for catholics like other citizens Are in the habit voting their sentiments and being in consequence much divided in political opinion. is Tiue that they were All compelled through self respect and in natural self defence to vote against the know nothing the last presidential election. The tactics their adversaries which made opposition to the Catholic religion a political test left them no alternative but to vote for the democratic nominee. No one could blame them for this for the Issue was plainly forced upon them. But before the Advent know nothing ism the catholics Kentucky for example were probably As much divided in sentiment As their fellow citizens the majority them we believe especially in the country voting with the old whig party. present. Catholics Are again divided in Kentucky and elsewhere Between the two sections into which the democratic party has been unhappily split. is not True that the whole Catholic body is in favor Douglas a re know Many them in Kentucky both native and foreign birth who Are warm advocates Breckinridge. Elsewhere this is up probably in even a More marked manner. Thus in new York the nominee the Breckinridge party for governor . Brady is a Catholic and the great Catholic Leader the new York bar Charles con esq., is also a Strong advocate the same political ticket. In Massachusetts in Marj land. And More particularly in the More Southern states this is even still More the Case. Perhaps the most contemptible allegation made by certain unprincipled Small Fry politicians is that which asserts that All catholics in the country will vote for Douglas because his present wife happens to be a Catholic this is As false As is How Many catholics voted for general Scott when the out cry was raised against him that his wife and daughter were catholics and that he himself waa tier haps inclined in the same Way ? not perhaps one in a Hundred and Why ? simply because his politics those the party which he represented did not tally with their own political principles. We Are no politicians but we must enter our indignant protest against the tactics certain brawling politicians who would thus drag the religion catholics into the political Arena merely to Subserve their own interested purposes. Whether these politicians mean to cajole to insult Cathou is is All the same their policy is in either Case contemptible. Catholics should vote their sentiments just like their fellow citizens other denominations no denominate and they should regard any Appeal made to them As religionists in favor this that candidate As a direct and deliberate insult and treat the politicians who make such Aji peals accordingly. Let us hear no More then whether from Fried us toe. Of the Quot Catholic orfeas Catholic visit the president and lord Ken Frew to mount Vernon.

They were received the wharf by major Ramsay the Eom Nia Niler the Ai senal and conducted to the Steamer along a carpeted passage to the Gangway where they were met by secretaries Cass Cobb Thompson Floyd and Touchy postmaster general Izolt attorney general Black a mrs Thompson mis. Black and a Small number ladles and gentlemen who were invited to accompany the president s party their interesting excursion to the Home and grave Washington. As soon As tie party was embarked and the Harriet a Emne loosed from her moorings the president s Flag was saluted by Twenty one guns and the English Flag was then hoisted the main and a similar Salute fired in Honor lord Renfrew. The weather was Superb and the View the Potomac and its beautifully to oiled Banks As the Harriet Lane steamed gracefully Down the Stream was repeatedly admired by those Board. When the Cutter arrived in front mount Vernon she dropped her anchors and lowered her launches in which i be president and his guests were rowed to the Ivio unt Vernon Landing. The first launch containing the president and miss Lane was steered by lord Renfrew who handled the Tiller ropes with the skill an evidently Practised Boatman. The distinguished party then visited the simple grave in Whitti repose the Jisi ies tie hero statesman Quot the ii in War the first in peace and the first in the Heanis his countrymen Quot Antl whose name and Fame Are alike known and Lio nored in every part the civilized world. was a solemn and deeply interesting scene one which will be recorded in history As one the most remarkable and Happy events our age to see the president the United states and the heir to the throne England attended by some the highest officers their governments standing uncovered the Tomb Washington animated by feelings the most sincere Friendship and profound respect for each other and thus As were giving pledge to the world the perpetuity the close Alliance and cordial Amity which now exist Between the two great and powerful Kindred nations so worthily represented this occasion by the venerable and gifted statesman who now fills the chair Washington and the Youthful and Graceful Prince who is destined to Wield the British sceptre. Our respected fellow citizen George w. Riggs esq., treasurer the ladies mount Vernon association and mrs.

Lord Renfrew and All the gentlemen standing uncovered and Evide fitly impressed by the solemnity the scene and the occasion. Not the least noteworthy and interesting incident the Day was the planting an Acorn a Little Hillock close to the Tomb by lord Renfrew. May the seed which he planted in ground which every american regards As hallowed Rise and grow and flourish and be an Emblem his own future Prosperity health and strength As Well As the permanence the Friendship that exists Between his people and ours. Shortly after this Graceful ceremony was concluded the party re embarked and partook a splendid collation.

Our exchanges from All quarters indicate the Raj id Grove Fth Public sentiment in favor Breckinridge and Lane and that the National principles which they represent Are fast becoming the voice the nation. There is no doubt this. In the Southern states says the mississippian 25th ult., Quot the revolution is carry ing everything before .
