He took it for granted that in spite of the disclaimers of the Republican party id sentiment and practice they a re at War with part of the Constitution which provides for the rendition of fugitive slaves. It then follows that they Are at War with every clause referring therein to slavery for they All rest on Tho sume basis. Besides they Are at War with the Constitution when they make As a Peculiar Issue the question decided by the supreme court relative to slavery in the territories. That same philosophy compelled them to make War on slavery in the District of Columbia every where and in the states. Only one of two motives induced them to carry on this crusade a hatred to the slaves or to the masters. It could not be to the former because Between them and their emancipation lies amp sea of blood. The Only result is to to harm to the people of the South against whom their venom and hatred Are directed. He condemned what he termed the miserable paid errs to the worst passions of the people. Was it fraternal conduct on the part of these fanatics to Lake the sword in hand tor the liberation of slaves or. Hickman of pa., who had been referred to by or. Boyce explained that in i remarks the other Damp a he meant that if the Southern states at any period of time shall determine on a dissolution of the Union for and cause which now exists the North Are resolved to prevent it and if War should be the consequence of the North determining to preserve the Union and the South to destroy it the responsibility will rest on the South if that meant the subjugation of the South he did not so understands or. Boyce rejoined he understood from he gentleman that if the South shall take her destinies in her own hands the North will prevent it but the South could not be conquered by the eighteen millions of the Northern people As intimated. If the Issue was Ever a amp a depend upon it the War would be to the knife. He did not however apprehend that those people would Ever engage in such a strife the majority of them Are Loyal to the Constitution and they will Tell you to pause in your fratricidal career. The South de ire peace Concord and Harmony win you give them to us ? or. English of ind., replied to or. Haskin whose remarks he said were harsh and unt Neri Tod in reference to the Compromise Bill that he or. English introduced into the lost Congress. He narrated the history of the Bill providing for the admission of Kansas which in his opinion realized All that his friends claimed for it and was the Best they could secure at Tho Lime under the circumstances which then existed. On voting for or.
