Men of such Opinio is Are beyond any arguments of mine and i would not waste words upon them. But i would address myself to those who do not believe either of these revolting dogmas and particularly to the More conservative portion of them. 1, desire to show thei i if i can and i think i can that it a most prudent most conserva Tive safest to supp the Republican candidates. Of coarse i do not expect to succeed with those who think they find in the characters or principles of Cor candidates cements dangerous to the country but i Hope to convince any candid person that if there be no real danger in the election of our Candi t there is great Quarter. Let us look then danger in the opposite for a moment at our candidates both of them. Or. Lincoln the candidate for the first office is a Man of the purest character. No one has said and i assume therefore that no one can say word against it but that in Oil Bis relations social and political and All its transactions professional or pecuniary Lio is free from All exception and beyond Afi reproach. He Haft lived a lab Oriot i life of half a Century often in the Robdrt great pm Visioni and great temptations he has not sunk under the privation he has not yielded to the temptation he has risen by the Force of labor and of will from poverty Atud obscurity to competence and honorable refined in his habits simple in. His tastes unassuming in Demeanour All who know him Praise him i have heard Many neighbors and acquaintances of different speak of him and i have never Beard one who did not speak of him with respect and Confidence. He has not been corrupted by of Nee. I believe he has held but one office Tutt of a member of Congress for a single term. He is fresh from the people but he b none the less conversant with Public questions. His speeches in Illinois in that Host memorable canvass i against or. Douglas show him to be a careful observe to a profound thinker a close Reasoner a sagacious i invite his bitterest opponents to look through them cd find one intemperate statement or an extravagant doctrine. They Are Distin gashed throughout by Good temper a d moderate View. Such a Man will ajl n Inister the government tempera Tely h Wever firmly he will give no Provo a 43 a nor run into any kind of extravagance e very portion of the country will receive it tar As depends on him. No s Joe Southern or Northern will find cause lain of him i am confident he w the South and the North alike and the East As though As it was Hia own by the persons who Hare the the largest number of electors. All that could Ever be Eaid against this practice was that the officer elected ought ,10 Hare from i majority of the people no o person so f iras i know t it other tha i a grave mis candidate selected should the people a Les mum than his competitor Over whom to reject therefore or. Lincoln if be should have Leas than an absolute majority and put Over him one who Havi has less than he would oppose the general practice and offend the Sens of Justice of our people. Second if there be danger in the election of one we has not the strongest hold upon the people there a even greater danger from tie struggle in the House of representatives. We cannot shut our eyes t 9 the Constitution of that body to the Lack of self com Mand which Many of its me users have Al ready shown to the suns by which whole classes of them Are inf lamed and to the threatening under the in fluence of which they will be certain in which it has some degree to the worst crisis through Ever passed will be As nothing to what we shall see Dow if the election of president goes the House. There Are Many per sons and politicians at the South who threaten and advocate forcible resistance to or. Lincoln s inauguration if elected by the native West. People. If these men Are sincere they will our candidate for the second office resist his election by the representatives of Hamlin is also it Man of irreproachable the people. Among these advocates and life and character. He has been much More in Public life than or. Lincoln and ass everywhere borne himself vips that every duty will be performed and that no office is too great for him to fill. With these men in office the various in be fists confided to their care will they could not be in safer hands but some of our opponents will say we know Al this to be True the men Are excellent Ait their principles Are which of their principles is dangerous instead of invective and vituperation you will specify any portion of the platform adopted at Chicago any declaration of or. Leo fits or Hamlin which from your lint you pronounce dangerous i will in find a warrant for it in the writings of Washington and be Fierson. In sober Earnest the Republican in this moment the conservative Ali country All the other m its of parties Are advancing some d unknown to the fathers and Sec men or their Tea to some heresy repugnant id the Doc i is of Pur a evolutionary age. F i could reach the ends of our Southern itt Bren and they would listen to me i say to them be assured that the party meditates no wrong to out that we would not if we could Dis tort any of your institutions that what Roun hink Best for yourselves it is in our Opinto your right to have and to keep at we consider you neither our inferiors nor in superiors but our and we Levitt Ever to treat you and to be treated As sikh. Do not mistake the clamor and of few individuals for the 18 threaten Era of resistance son them members of Congress Are the loudest if not the most determined. We May expert therefore at least every sort of intimidation. Threats Lead to Defiance and who can Tell or dares to think of what May happen on the floor of the House before the 4th of March if there be no violence n a there not be corruption the election Rill be in the Palms of the hands of half a score of Mem Bers. The yearly revenues of this govern ment Are from eighty to a Hundred millions. The disbursement of this Money and the making of the contracts for which it is to be in great measure disburse i May be Worth t will Tonto Nisi tin to Confidence of its senators and a concurrence of a majority of All the states shall to necessary to make such a or. Madison seconded the motion. Or. Reed observed that the states hav ing but one member Only in the House of representative would be in danger of hav ing no vote at All in the election the sick Ness or absence either of the representative or one of the senators would have that effect or. Madison replied that if one Mem her of House of representatives should be left capable of voting for the state the state having one representative Only would still be subject to that he thought it an evil that so Small a number at any rate should be authorized to elect corruption would be greatly facilitated by it the Mode itself was liable to this further weighty objection that the representatives of a minority of the people might reverse the Choice of a majority of the states and of the Jwo fee. Wished some cure for this inconvenience might yet be in the convention of Virginia assembled to decide upon the acceptance or rejection of the Constitution it was observed by or. Gun Sori the executive is to be elected by a number of electors in the country but the principle is changed when no one has a majority of the whole number of electors appointed or when More than one have such a majority and have an equal number of votes for then the lower House a to vote by states. It is thus changing throughout the whole. It seems rather founded on Accident than on any principle of government i Ever heard of. The number of become a turbulent body beyond any dreamed in the beginning of the govern ment. Intemperance in language is habit Ual Persona violence even has been proc tided without receiving any Many of the we Are told carry concealed arms. They threaten and abuse each other As if they had been collected to Gether from the lowest classes of into this body thus constituted and thus acting it a proposed to cast the election of chief magistrate of thirty millions of people divided into three or four parties inflamed against each other and struggling for the. Millions. I will not Trust m self to describe ent or designs of a great party. And is a Jumble member of that party i will to predict that the Republican and fion will not be selfish or Prescript Al it Wilt exercise its great Powers As Truitt f r the whole country and not for a Wrt
