Indianapolis Old Line Guard (Newspaper) - September 20, 1860, Indianapolis, Indiana To a ii. Sachus Ette or. Giddings of Ohio All identified with the anti slavery party will Tell you Liat they Are for the Union but it is their own sort of Union they want they say they arc for the coir tit udon but they construe the Constitution so As to take away our rights. They Tell you they Are for the enforcement of the Laws but they Are for Laws which would take away our property. Cheers for the Quot Union the Constitution and the they shake hands with you on that but you cannot agree on a single thing under heaven afterwards. Laughter and cheers then this platform gentlemen declares practically nothing Quot and i Luve no More to say about it. Quot Good Good Quot but the platform i have read to you does contain a distinct enunciation of certain principles which touch the rights of property and Pei son in the territories and which declare the equal rights of the states and now is Kentucky ready to meet the Issue we Appeal to you not in behalf of any individual but to stand by your own principles resting As they do upon the Constitution of the United states. Cries of now if it be True that i am not a disunion St and if it be True that the political principles advocate Are the principles of the Constitution will it not be pretty difficult the fasten disunion on sound men with constitutional principles cries of Quot that s that gentlemen would seem to exhaust the subject. Sound men with constitutional principles which Are affirmed in the Mode recognized in american politics and which we propose to maintain by reason and the ballot Box. Really this would seem to exhaust the question. But it is said although i am not a disunion St and the principles i maintain Are constitutional and True yet the object of this organization by a Lnch i have been nominated is to break up this confederacy and i suppose they have selected me As the tool wit i which to execute that scheme. A voice Quot a bad instrument Quot cheers gentlemen i do not think any Man will charge me in my Public address to tie people with want of Candor. I have no doubt a great Many gentlemen in tie Southern states of the Union think that their constitutional rights will never be recognized. A few Are perhaps be Dis unionists Trio ugly i doubt if there Are fifty such in tie Union aside from the abolitionists of Quot the Garrison school. Undoubtedly a number of gentlemen Olio were dissatisfied with the Compromise measures of 1850, now prefer me for the presidency and sustain me on this platform and if i could descend to count noses i doubt not there Are Many More of the same character who sustain other gentlemen upon platforms not so constitutional and desirable As mine. Cheers what is the charge ? nearly the entire delegations of a majority of the states made this nomination and it is sustained by the masses of the Southern democracy and by Strong organizations in most of the Northern states. Do they mean to say that these masses were a Why gentlemen the i country is in a bad Way if Liis be so. But tie charge is a reckless one. The Enilie delegations from California and Oregon United in my nomination and affirmed our j principles. Are these disunion states ? they lie thousands of Miles away from our strikes. What have they said or done that could Lead any Man to suppose Liat they would break up the Union of the slates they arc impartial arbitrators of this dispute and they Tell our Northern Brethren they nudist do Justice and give Equality in the Union and thus alone can they maintain the Union and the Constitution. Arc a Uia Dorily of the senators in Congress Disu unionists ? Are three fourths of the democratic members of the House of Dis unionists arc All the eminent men throughout the Union who sustain this cause Dis unionists ? my friends the Clarge is baseless and absurd. Advantage Lias been taken of tic loyalty of the people of Kentucky and equally to the Surprise and Delight of the gentlemen engaged in it the scheme succeeded better than they . I an sure that the sober second thought of the people will recall them to the maintenance of their Well considered opinions. Kentucky will never abandon a principle which she has declared to be tie Princi Jill of tie Constitution and of the Union loud applause i will not answer the newspaper accusations that this gentleman and the other gentleman who have held extreme opinions suit Piort me. Gentlemen of Lar Muic in Jui u mi.-. It Juii i can i dates. What if a by and a whose opinions you do not like thinking better of a Cei Tain set of principles than they do of a certain other set of principles or no principles at All laughter and applause choose to vote for me will you for this fasten the stigma of disunion upon one half of the confederacy v gentlemen it is unworthy. Judge men by their antecedents and by the principles supported by the mass of their advocates. Do that and if you find the Man unexceptionable and the principles True what Brave Man will be deterred from his support by a false clamor of disunion ? i never would understand How it avas sectional to assert a constitutional right for i have always regarded the Constitution As covering the whole country. Cheers but while Yon Are wrangling among yourselves there Are Dis unionists All Over tie country working and working actively for the overthrow of the Union of the states. They arc those who deny constitutional rights for upon the Constitution the Union rests. They Are those who All Over the North Are engaged to Day in trampling under foot without shame the plainest rights guaranteed to us by the Federal Constitution. Cheers the governor of the state of Ohio refused to deliver up a Man indicted for felony in Kentucky because he says under the Laws of Ohio it is no crime to steal a negro. To Day in the state of Wisconsin a Man indicted Lor a forcible Rescue from the custody of the marshal of the United states is protected by a mob Liose Lawless proceedings seem to be sustained by Public o a Nion. Where in the North can the fugitive slave Law be executed except Here and there along the Border ? How Many of the states in the North live passed Laws making it an offence to be punished by Fine and imprisonment to Aid the officers of the United states in executing the Law in regard to the return of fugitive slaves or eight. I believe. Look at these things. Look at the concentration of anti slavery opinion. Look at the gradual Advance year after year of Micou Stith tonal encroachments. See yourselves in ironed and closed in upon with steady and relentless Steps. State after state enacting Laws making it penal in the people to assist the officers of the United states to execute the Laws which protect your rights armed mobs making rescues from the marshal and refusing to surrender prisoners a thorough anti slavery opinion maturing and taking the form of political action in tie Northern states inroads in every directions at Harper s ferry arsons in Texas the South in ironed and beset the Constitution thrown with contempt in her face the purpose avowed to exclude her from All the common Domain of the Union and thus to begin that Quot irrepressible conflict Quot which must end in the abolition of slavery in the states. Applause and yet when a political organization ventures to protest in constitutional language to ask for constitutional rights those rights which you have said Are yours having no ear to hear no Eye to see no voice of censure to rebuke these unconstitutional encroachments you turn upon and Stab with clamorous cries of disunion your own fellow citizens who Are struggling for your own rights applause and like the jews when Titus besieged their City instead of defending the temp of your liberties you waste the precious hours in insane wrangling and Mutual accusations. Renewed applause a single word upon another Point. It is said that or. Lincoln representing the most offensive principles bet re the country ought to be Defeated and that i am the Only Man in the Way of his defeat. I agree he ought to a Defeated. I agree that he represents the most obnoxious principles in Issue in this canvass. I agree that his principles Are clearly unconstitutional and if the Republican party should undertake to carry them out they will destroy the Union. But does any one pretend that or. Lincoln will carry a single Southern state in any event ? was or. Douglas willing to unite in the Only practical Mode for the defeat of or. Lincoln As Many of the Wisest men in the East thought ? of the details of that i know nothing. Did not the democratic state convention in Pennsylvania before the National convention assembled nominate an electoral ticket and place it before the people and did not a Large majority of the state Central committee of Pennsylvania after a tee old line guard.

Douglas declaring that Quot Oil and water could not mix Quot say his friends should not vote for this electoral ticket but should non Nate one devoted to him alone which a very child knows has not a Chance to carry the state while it is equally sure if the recommendation of the state Central committee had been acceded to the United vote of those who prefer that gentleman and myself would defeat or. Lincoln. Cheers the same thing May be predicted in almost the same language of new Jersey and other states. But no. We who stand upon the principles i have vindicated to Day Are Dis unionists seeders and they will have nothing to do with us and so he Breaks up the Only Mode by which in the opinion of the regular organization of those states or. Lincoln can be Defeated. Now As i have said or. Lincoln can in no event carry a single Southern state of this Union and Vith them Pennsylvania new Jersey and California would make a majority so that the defeat of or. Lincoln would be sure. If perchance he should be elected nothing will have caused that result but the Quot Rule or ruin Quot purpose the restless ambition and almost insane policy of one Man and his violent loud cheers not Content with attempting to defeat at the North the surest Mode by which the democratic organization might control the result at the next election this Tootleman has turned his headlong Couise to the South. And what i ask is his object in coming i South does he expect do you expect does any sane j Man expect that he Mil carry a single Southern i state cries of Quot no no Quot j it is said his friends claim Missouri. I will not end ter into particulars about that. Suppose he can. Yet i think he has no More Chance for Missouri than i have for Massachusetts.

The Encampment of the Volunteer militia of the state for which preparations have been making for some time commences to Day. The object of this Encampment is two fold to instruct the companies that attend in the duties of a military Camp and to direct attention to the necessity of a Law for fostering such j Volunteer organizations and thus having within our i Borders an available Force drilled disciplined and equip died for any contingency that might arise. Gen. Wallace arrived yesterday to take command and to Day on the Terre haute train three companies will come in. They Are to be received As will be seen by a special order from Headquarters published in another column by the City battalion and escorted to Camp. The tents will be pitched at once j the sentries posted and the Camp . The Crawfordsville zouave and fort Harrison Greys alluded to arrived at the expected a time. They marched through Washington Street with the precision of regular troops. Their discipline and appearance reflected much credit upon the rank and file As Well As officers in command. The state should be proud of such military corps and give them All the encouragement in its Power and they in turn will when the exigency comes do the shiite Quot some to correspondents. We solicit our friends in All parts of the state Tofa Orv u8 occasionally with communications Short but to the Point so that the Public May be informed of the strength and spirit of the Breckinridge movement in this Wise to take the stump. We Are it leased to learn from the Richmond enquirer that governor Wise will take the stump for Breckinridge and Lane at an Early Day. Henry a. Wise undoubtedly exercises a i eater Power Over the masses upon the stump than any other living american orator. One blast upon his Bugle is Worth a thousand men. If time will enable him to canvass one half of the state the old Dominion is sure for Breckinridge and Lane by 15,000 majority. The Douglas organs have chuckled a Good Deal because John Letcher the present governor of Virginia has expressed a preference for the Little dodger. The Fai Ignont True virginian says when that old roman we. Letcher the governor s father being a Strong Breckinridge Man was asked what he would do now that his son had come out for Douglas replied Quot i was a Democrat before John teas Horn Quot three cheers for this old Jackson Democrat. The Douglas state ticket. Let it be remembered that the new Albany Leff or claims All the candidates on the state ticket As Doug Las men. We have Rea on to apprehend we again Mer taking the lion s of the loaves and fishes and the latter the Oills. All the influence of the state officers elect All the influence of those expecting to participate in the state patronage will be brought to Bear against the friends of Breckinridge and Lane to weaken their organization now and to defeat their tickets hereafter. For one we arc not disposed to kiss the Rod which will be used to smite us. For one we shall not vote the ticket nor hereafter even publish it considering the refusal of its friends to unite on honorable terms with the Breckinridge men whilst they Are hugging to their bosoms those whom they characterized five Short years ago As Quot murderers Quot and House burners Quot As a premeditated insult which no True Democrat can Indiana election. We have no disposition to interfere in the local concerns of the hoosiers. We believe they Are fully a ble of settling their own affairs in their own Way. Ave live not of traded our advice upon them and shall not do so now. But in a few weeks an important election is to be held in Indiana for state officers. A majority of the state ticket Are said to be Douglas men and on that ground we have seen distinct intimations in papers published in other states of an intention to claim the Success of that ticket As a Douglas Triumph. So far the democracy of that state have not done As the squatters did Here opposed the ticket and have not and will not vote for the negro worshippers to defeat those who Are using their name to break Down their party though the Dougl Sites Here did support Combs know nothing to defeat a regular democratic nominee. But hoping to elect the squatter state ticket through the support of Bright and Fitch and the True democracy there they have informed us in indirect terms of their intention to Call a Success thus obtained not a demo i Atic but a Douglas Triumph and those by whose Aid it is hoped to elect their candidates Are denounced As Quot assassins Quot in comparison with whom the Black republicans Are men engaged in honorable warfare. And rejecting the overtures for a United ticket against the Black republicans which was made by the friends of the National administration the Quot Aid of the Bell men Quot is invoked to enable the Doug Lasics to succeed co operation with democrats is refused and co operation with those whose oaths against foreign born and Catholic citizens Are yet fresh on the paper where they were recorded is invited under these circumstances the democratic state Central committee of Indiana meet to Day to determine upon the propriety of nominating a full democratic state ticket. What they will do is Uncertain. Avith More time to canvass the state it is probable a ticket would be nominated but candidates put in the Field now would have no time to see the people to make their claims known and to perfect arrangements to bring out their friends and we presume no ticket will be nominated. We Hope none will courier. Similar considerations As those advanced by the courier have had their weight with the Breckinridge state committee. After a Long discussion of the subject on last monday afternoon and night a majority of the committee rescinded the Resolution of a previous meeting and finally decided that it would be inexpedient at this late Day to nominate another state ticket. A majority of the committee however regretted that the democratic state convention of the 31st july last had not nominated Candi Quot dates for governor and other state offices As Avell As presid a phial electors when there would have been time for the candidates to canvass the state. But they i agreed with the courier in the opinion that Quot Candi dates put into the Field Norr Quot would not have an Opportunity to Quot see the people to make their claims i known and to perfect arrangements to bring out their. Friends Quot at the state election. The committee however were All in favor of leaving their political friends Indiana free to vote the state ticket or not to vote it As they pleased a free to exercise the Quot largest Liberty Quot at the state i election. I the Breckinridge committee have gone As far i to bring about an Union with the Douglas committee in favor of one ticket As democrats having a due regard for principle could go. 77/<? overtures of support have All been slighted by the Douglas men whilst the Quot a a of the Bell men Quot has been courted and now if the coalition state ticket is lost let the Douglas men take the responsibility. The Douglas Organ on the other Side of the River acting in concert with the Douglas organs on this Side has denounced the Breckinridge men of Indiana i As Quot they have been so denounced and i vilified whilst offering the Olive Branch to their of friends the Douglas men. As the friends of the Uli i Nois demagogue have preferred the Aid of their old i enemies As they have preferred the support of the i know nothings who they have heretofore denounced \ As murderers Quot and a a House burners Quot let them now i get that Quot Aid Quot if they can and make the most of it. I can any True National Breckinridge and Lane j Democrat with the proper spirit attached to that proud title stoop to join in such a coalition ? we know at least one who will not do it and perhaps there May be others who will not. For our part we shall go for a Complete and Thor a Ough organization of the True democrats As soon As. The state election is Over. We shall go in favor of nominations for alloffice3, highest to the lowest j we shall keep the colors of Breckinridge and Lane i flying not Only till the presidential election but As i Long As we have a Mast head. Ave have Confidence in our cause Confidence in our ultimate Triumph but if we stand or fall we shall adhere to the Breckinridge and Lane platform. That platform will prove imperishable. It is the Only one upon which the Union can stand. It is wide and Broad enough 3 is and Strong enough too to sustain in 18g4 one of the largest parties that Ever was or Ever can be organized m Indiana. Mississippi we Are separated by a Border of seven Hundred and fifty Miles from free soil. We live on one Side and they on the othe r. The Waters flow from the North and from the South and unite in that 1 Valley and mingling together they float Down to swell the mighty Stream Laden with Commerce. Well might As Well talk of separating those mingled Waters of taking the drop that runs South from the drop that runs North As of separating Kentucky from her sister applause How wisely then did the True democrats in the Baltimore convention act when they made Choice of the favorite son of Quot old Kentuck Quot As their Standard bearer How True to the Union did they show themselves to be when they associated with him that Noble i old Veteran of Indiana Joe Lane who led her Gallant troops to fight the Battles of his country in Mexico who covered himself and his followers with such imperishable laurels at Buena Vista there is not a drop of disunion blood coursing the veins of either of them not a pulsation in their hearts that does not vibrate for the Union for Quot the preservation of the Union to the latest let us then listen no More to the miserable twaddle of the Illinois demagogue about disunion when he undertakes to Call in j question the loyalty of such Well known and Well tried j patriots there is not an intelligent and honest Man i in the country who does not scout at such stuff. What i a kentuckian a disunion St it is enough to make the Gallant spirits of Kentucky who sacrificed their lives at Tippecanoe for their country Rise up and Hiss at such a calumny. It is enough to make the Gallant associates of Lane at Buena Vista Young Clay Mckee. And Hardin who like him shed their blood i for their country who fell whilst fighting in the same i cause to turn in their Graves and join in the Hiss the Union was Douglas not sustained. Large Breckinridge meeting at West Point. We understand that there was a Large turn out of the True democrats at West Point on the 11th inst. Or. Fitch spoke to a very attentive audience for two hours and a half and with great effect. After the Little dodger finished his speech in Jones Woods new York in which he said that the Quot i Eul Dis unionists desired the election of Lincoln Quot and yet there was not a disunion St in the South who was not a Friend of Breckinridge Quot he called Forth sex gov. Forehead of Kentucky to Back him up in this Kisser Tion. He introduced this gentleman in the following manner Quot when Noi Thern abolitionists and Souther Dis unionists combined to plunge this country into a Rev i solution in 1850, the illustrious Clay came Forward and led the Union whigs and the Union democrats to a Victory in behalf of the great principles of non intervention by Congress with slavery in the territories. Gov. Morehead was one of those patriotic old whigs. Quot three cheers for he is As much a whig to Day As he was then but he loves his country now he did then and if you do not believe it Call on him and he will speak for Grovernor Morehead then addressed the people at considerable length. At the commencement of his speech he replied to the remarks of or. Douglas As follows Quot i would say i am for the Union. I am for its maintenance in perfect integrity. If i have one feel ing in my heart dearer than All others it is that the Union May be preserved. I have Felt As my honoured Friend who has just taken his seat has Felt that there is danger. At this moment a band of music passing j in front of the stand caused considerable interrupt i Tion i have Felt my fellow citizens As i was speaking when interrupted Quot that there is danger to the Union. Jniya heart is Joyal to it and when i say that can say further that the entire heart of the great state from whence i came is As Loyal to it As my own. There is not a Man to be found who is not Loyal to it. There is not a human being breathing in the state of Kentucky who is not in favor of the preservation of this Union to the latest j of course if there is Quot not a Man in Kentucky who is not Loyal to the Union Quot neither Breckinridge nor his friends in that state can be Dis unionists. And it was for this very reason that the National democratic convention at the Baltimore Institute selected its candidate for president from that state. It is impossible for old Kentucky As governor Morehead said on this occasion to leave the Union. Hear him Quot we Are so situated that it is Nettei by Imit Syible for us to separate. Ave occupy the great Valley of the this is the tide of a new paper in Indianapolis which has lately come out ostensibly As an advocate for Bell and Everett As president and vice president whom it apparently supports As the Union candidates. There is however no doubt that it is gotten up Tor the purpose of playing into the hands of Douglas and Johnson the latter one of the most Ultra it i unionists in the country. Its columns Are almost entirely filled with articles against Breckinridge and Lincoln but not one contains a word against the Illinois demagogue or the Georgia amongst other articles we find the following in its columns Breckinridge is. Breckinridge. Or. Breckinridge in his letter of acceptance speaking for himself and those with whom he is now associated says they hold the doctrine of non intervention by Congress or by a territorial legislature Eitnier to is table Isle or prohibit slavery but they assert fortified by the highest judicial tribunal in the Union the Plain duty of the Federal Iov emment in All its departments to secure when necessary to the citizens of All the states the enjoyment of their property in the common territories As every where else within its jurisdiction. The Only logical answer to this would seem to be to claim Sovereign Power for the territories or to deny that the Constitution recognizes property in the services of negro slaves or to deny that such property can in reply to this May be quoted Breckinridge against Breckinridge in his speech at Lexington in 1856, after he had been chosen vice president of the a in Ted states Quot upon the distracting question of Domestic slavery their the democratic party s position is Clear. The whole Power of tie democratic organization is pledged to the following propositions. That Congi Ess shall not intervene upon the subject in the states in the territories or in the District of Columbia that the people of each territory shall determine the question for themselves Avit Hout discrimination on account of the allowance or prohibition of Why did not the Union Flag As it Calls , quote or. Breckinridge fairly v Why did it omit in the last paragraph which it pretends was a passage in his Lexington speech of 1856, several material words what or. Breckinridge did say that year was As follows Quot that the people of each territory shall determine the question of slavery for themselves when they come to form a slate the Flag omits the words in italic. If its editor had inserted them he would have been sorely puzzled to find any inconsistency in or. Breckinridge s views now and his views then. But if the Flag is really what its name imports and is not actually a piratical one upon what ground does it assail the sentiments entertained by the great Kentucky statesman either at this time or in 1856? what is the difference Between or.
