The Power and discipline of directed As Uliey were by nip to be deserving of Confidence produced a result which never could Hare been ejected if a reasonable Douht of their integrity had existed. Or.

Clay just As they bad denounced him As be intr guilty of bargain Safe for accepting office under or Adams. These Disbo Nortise tactics in which or. Foster played a conspicuous part succeeded and or. Pupik was elected president no sooner had to fraud triumphed than the people to look with apprehension and Dit Tuat upon the future and to realize How grossly Thev had wrongm.1 or. Play and the party who had consistently and firmly defended their interests. At the session preceding the inauguration1 of or. Polk and Only a few weeks lifter his elect Ion a Bill was brought Forward in the House of representatives to rep Al the duty on Railroad imn. Or. Foster who was personally and prominently connected with the full conspiracy by which Pennsylvania was betrayed Tito the mind spa the free and was i Esb from the scene its than Toane t for Protection in order to a Fienie the just resentment iof constituents whom he had helped to deceive. He had planted a Dagger in the heart of by contributing to the Newtion of or. Polk. And then assumed n of her cause to a five himself 1 Roin tie Eft acts of the perfidy. Arnold s treason i s Only valuable to the enemy because be was know i to possess the menus by which his might be sacrificed and be was most of talons in the Public cause when con i firing with foreign foe for the destruct Ion of on liberties. Or. Fortt a. Of traded himself Forward on the occasion referred to with the customary and cheap professions of Devotion to Pennsylvania. Or. Morris then from this City exposed the organized fraud by which the state had been carried for or. Polk Over or. Clay and or. Foster replied in these words he knew the manner in which the can Vass bad been conducted and when the gentlemen came to speak of it As it bad been carried in Bis m r. F s county and to de Clare that the people had acted Uri scr such influences be had mistaken us i altogether Ley had acted under m delusion. The Tariff question was the one which in the Lute canvass in Pennsylvania had deeply agitated the Public mind. They had teen Toldby their whig friends there and generally throughout the country that by the elect on of or. Polk the Iron and Coal interests of Pennsylvania were to trodden Down but he had declared to them that the profession that the whig parly were the Only friends to the pro fiction of the Iron interests of Pennsyl Vania was hollow and had he been mistaken when Law told the people of his state for n fair Equit Able honorable adj system they must not party or. Foster Here Admi manner in which the can Voss had been con ducted by which or. Polk had Upen elec Ted and he endeavoured to justify it he of the Tariff the who knew the to revive after a Long and dreary depression when or. Foster made that speech. We were just starting on a prosperous career and the thing of All others to be dreaded was a change a the whig Tariff. But or. Foster prefigured a new in distinctly it is True at that time but which came with crushing Force soon afterwards. The Tariff of 1846 was passed As soon As the democratic administration and party in Congress were ready and that is the Wir Equit Ible and honorable adjustment which or. Foster promised at the hands of Bis friends _ we care nothing for his individual vote or declarations on this subject they Lave a personal purpose at Home and were Al Wajs designed to acquire influence for a party which has uniformly when it had the Power stricken Down our Best interests. We All know that the most dangerous enemies any legislative measure Are the Treacher Ous friends who while affecting Zeal for it publicly Are secretly consorting and with its worst foes. They preserve their own record right As the Best Meau Sof defeating the very they pretend to support by hypocritical votes. Or. Foster cannot escape the criminality of being a party to the fraud by which Pennsylvania was betrayed in 1844, for we have produced his speech to prove that he defended it Only a few weeks afterwards. He supported Cass and Pierce both of whom were free traders and Buchanan been All things by turns and nothing Long. place the executive responsibility of this great state in such bands would be the most effectual Means of betraying Pennsylvania again and of ensuing the permanent defeat of the Merrill Bill. For if Pennsylvania will not protect herself and those who Hare faithfully stood by her what claim has she for Protection from we warn on friends now to take heed least american. A new j3xpoundeb. Or. Henry d. Foster is traversing the state in the new character of a Constitution Al expounded. He enlightened us recently As to the exact time when the Constitution was adopted and furnished some other equally valuable and refreshing instruction he was also greatly exercised about the re publicans and their dreadful take the following As an illustration the republicans demand that Congress shall prohibit the institution of slavery in All the territories of the Union where Doea con Gress derive such authority from what part of the Constitution gives Congress the Power to legislate upon both sides if they car say slavery shall not go into a certain territory they can say it May go there. I that Congress has no right to interfere with the matter at nil. There is no such Power in these declarations Are Plain and positive like some Uthera made upon the Sion and with just As Little regard for the records of Congress. Or. Foster says con Gress Baa no Power at Alf Over the matter. Let us gee what be did not what he . On the 28th of january or. Brown of Tenn moved Bis Resolution providing that that portion of Texas lying South of 38 30 shall be admitted with or without slaved Ryas toe people of the states to be formed out of it might desire. Or. Douglas asked him to accept the Fol lowing modification after the last clause and in such suites As shall be formed out of said territory North of said Missouri Compromise line slavery or involuntary servitude except for crime shall be Prohic it was accepted on the division the name of Foster of appears ii the affirmative. He thus affirmed the Power of Congress and to far even As to obligate new states in the future by this restriction. More than this he with or. the Constitution Amity of the Missouri Compromise which was thus re a inc Ted though or. Doug is moved the repeal in 1854, and was sustained by or. Foster. Again on the 8th of february 1847, Bronson f Village drugstore surly opposite the glean glean . A with a full us Complete Mior Tient lard my Lump oils Camp beige liquors for medical per Only.

A or Hort Era a Mado from fit per heat put up am Tom Ere went further and changed that the profess Sions of the whig party to the of the Iron although the passed the Tariff of 1842, were these were the charges made nil the Memora ble canvass and it was by that Agency and others discreditable that or. Clay was Defeated. In this very speech or. Foster foreshadowed the disastrous and perfidious legislation which followed on the democratic Tariff of 1846, its soon As or Polk was warm in Bis seat and could perfect the treachery. He said that he told the poo pie of his state that Tor a fair equitable honorable adjustment of the Tariff not rely or Tho whig party a now let it be remembered that the Best Tariff for Penn Ira which had Ever pawed was then i Jour Iron and or. Wilmot moved the following Amend ment to the three million Bill popularly known As the Wilmot i and be it. Further enacted that there shall be neither slavery nor in Volu buy servitude in any territory on the continent of America which shall hereafter be acquired by or annexed to the United states except for crimes whereof the party shall have been duly this Resolution proposed to exclude Sla very for nil time from nil territory to be acquired or annexed on this continent and among favor of it is Foster of Peon he was not Only willing to bind himself but posterity to Tho identical Prin Ciple which he now attacks for a present purpose. He denounced or. Seward As a Radical and yet voted for a proposition which went for beyond any move ment which or. Seward Erer made. As or. Foster was apparently anxious to know where co grew derived the Power to pc Bibit slavery in the territories that Paay be we thought it nut Conven Ien Forbis to furnish the answer from tis own record. He May plead the statute of limitation but can repudiate the journal and his votes. He was among the agitators who began the Carsade with or. Wilmot whom be now so complacently assails forgetting that every such censure is a stinging rebuke to himself and an evidence of double Deal ing on this american or Lincoln s apostrophe on the donation of below we rep fish a portion of one. Of or. Lin coins Campaign speeches in 1858, embracing an eloquent Impromptu on the declaration of Independence. Very few things in the English language equal in its Sublime eloquence and nothing Short of the inspirations of Patrick Henry surpass it it is As follows declaration of Independence was formed by the representatives of american Liberty from 13 of the confederacy of which were slave holding communities. We need not discuss the Way or the reason their becoming slaves holding communities. It is sufficient for our purpose All of them greatly deplored the evil and that they placed a provision in the Constitution which they supposed would gradually remove the disease cutting of fits source. This was the abolition of the slave general was this Public abolish the african slave Trade that the provision which to Cave refer red to As being placed in the Constitution declared that it should not be abolished Pri or to the year 1808. A constitutional pro vision was necessary to prevent the people through Congress from putting a Stop to the traffic immediately at the close of the War. Now if slavery had been a Good thing would the fathers of the Republic Ynve taken a step calculated to diminish its Beneficent influences among themselves and of Titch the Boon wholly from their posterity i these communities by their representatives in the old Independence Hall said to the world of men we hold these truths to be self evident that All men Ore created equal that they Are endowed by their Cre Ator with certain inalienable rights that among these ate life Liberty and the Pur suit of their Majestic interpretation of the Economy of the uni verse. This was their lofty and Wisp an8 Noble understanding of the Justice of the creator to his creatures. Applause yes gentlemen to All his creatures to the whole great in icily of Man. In their intelligent belief nothing stamped with the divine image and likeness was sett into the world to to be trodden on and degraded and Ambru Ted by i Fellows. They grasped not Only the whole a face of Man then living but they reached Forward and seized upon the far theres posterity. The erected a Beacon to guide their children and their children s children and the countless myriads who should inhabit the Earth in other Wise statesmen As they were they knew the tendency to posterity to Breed tyrants and so they established these great self Evi Dent truths that when in the Distant future some Man some faction some interest should set up the doctrine that none but Rich men or non but White or none but Anglo a futons were entitled to life Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness their posterity might look up again to the declaration of Independence and take Cour age to renew the Battle which ers that truth and Justice and mercy and All the humane and Christian Virtues might not be extinguished from the Laud so that no Man hereafter would dare to limit and circumscribe the great principles on which the Temple of Liberty was being built. Cheers now my countrymen if you have been taught doctrines conflicting with the great of the declaration of. Ind Epen i Deuce if Yon have lint nod to suggestions which would Takeaway from its grandeur and mutilate the symmetry of its proportions if you in Csc been inclined that All men Are not created Iqual those inalienable rights enumerated by our Chart of Liberty let me entreat Yon to come Back return to the Fountain whose water Spring close by the blood of the revolution. Think Noth ing of no thought of Bathe political Faith of any Man come Back to the truths that in the declaration of Independence. Ton May do anything with me you choose if you will need these sacred principles. Ton May not Only de feat to for the Senate but you May take me and put me to death. While pretending no interference to earthly honors a claim to be actuated in this contest by something higher than an anxiety for office. I charge you to drop paltry and in significant throw fat any Man s sure was. It it nothing i an nothing judge Douglas is nothing. But do not destroy that immortal if the Decla of am Erivn Independence great my have i you the logical Conte Quew Scott decision in Obi to show of the dred the people of a territory cannot prevent we establish ment of slavery in their midst i have Sta Ted what cannot be Gainsa Yett that the grounds upon which this made Are equally applicable to the. As to the free territories and that the be reasons put Forth by judge a Figlmi for endorsing this decision commit hip in Advance to the next decision and to when decisions enacting from the same and when by All these Means Yon succeeded in dehumanizing the negro when you have put him Down and made it impossible for him to be but As die beasts of the Field when Yon have extinguished by soul and placed him where the Ray of Hope is blown out in the darkness that broods Over the spirits of the damned Are you quite sure the Demon Yon have roused will not turn and rend Yon what constitutes the bulwark of on Liberty and ind Epen it be not on frowning battlements our bristling sea coasts the gnus of our Var steamers or the strength of on Gallant army. These Are not our Reliance against a. Resumption of tyranny in our land All of them May be turned against our liberties without making us stronger or weaker for the straggle. Our Reliance is in the love of Liberty which god has planted in our bosoms. Our defence is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes Liberty As the heritage of All men Ina lands everywhere. Destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism around your own doors. Familiarize yourselves with the chains of bondage and Yon Are preparing your own limbs to Wear them. Accustomed to trample on the rights of those around Yon you have lost the Genius of you own Independence and become the fit subjects of the first Canning tyrant who rises among you. And let me Tell Yon that nil these things Are prepared for Yon with the sure logic of history if the elections shall prom ise that the next dred Scott decisions will ration of Independence Are vindicated against the aspersions of the slave Cracy.
