Let it not go out Here if you would escape the execration of posterity for infidelity in guarding your sacred great end of the revolution was to secure civil and religious Liberty. Nor did our ancestors misjudge its Valuo in developing the resources physical moral and intellectual of Man. Look of in civil results. Under Republican government we have grown and prospered an expanded far beyond the most a Auguie imagination of the most hopeful devotee of Iti Nroa am Mowa Usif n to Miqu ult inc Iwu Grebl oceans Oast and West. Nearly one half of the North american continent bears upon its Generou bosom teeming trillions of american citizens who make their own Laws and worship a their chosen shrines. From 3,000,000 to have swelled tojj5.000,000. From poverty and ignorance an l weakness we have grown Rich intelligent sad Strong. Our sails Whiten every sea and our Enterprise and Energy penetrate into every land. No longer docs the British lion strike terror into the hearts of our women and children. We at a now Here equal in All the elements of National greatness and Here Superior in every characteristic of personal Liberty and political Idepence. Groat Britain undertook to manage our local affairs by assuming tic right to legislate for us while we were parliament assumed that they wore better judges of our wants and necessities than our own colonial Legislatures. They undertook to regulate the Domestic policy of their Distant imposed duties upon Tea without consulting us and in every manner asserted their right to govern us. Our fathers who had encountered the perils of the Ocean and the greater perils of a Savago wilderness who had fled from Europe to escape political and religious intolerance could not Long Broo such an unjust Assumption. They petitioned import Ned remonstrated the British government without Avail they took their rights in their own keeping and after a Long and do Tiff Ful struggle established a new fundamental articled the science of great american doctrine of the right of the people to govern themselves. Great Chcering no Tenet in political science has More thoroughly indicated its Wisdom than this and when brought into Issue its orthodoxy has not been questioned for seventy eight years until a few months past it is said by some who have forgot Tenor Renott tired the teachings and principles of to Weir father now that the people of Kansas and Nebraska Are incapable of governing to Ern Delvca and that the Congress must assume the tame Guardia. Chip Over these Distant territories is the parliament claimed Over Trio colonies. Where is the american fueling in the bosom of any Man who from fanatical Zeal forthe african slave whose condition cannot improve is willing to renounce this great doctrine of our father cheers abolitionism and aquatic ism mistake the heart of this , in supposing that when they cry out a against slavery it win cause the people to repudiate the principles upon which the governments based. Cheer the country owes my distinguished Fried who will follow me the Little giant of the great West senator Douglas immense applause a debt of gratitude for his powerful and successful advocacy of Thia principle thava been discussing and forts Triu Ruhaut vindicate a in Tho Kansas so Tho misrepresentation which Baabe Cal pm Rod out upon that measure Tho people Are now beginning to understand truly its provision and Ite greatest one so fiercely assailed by whigs and very principle for which oar fathers fought a Vivi Myu Mil we wow k no Uio Ciuc your fathers did. Or will you take the Side of the British parliament f the people of Kansas and Nebraska bar had conferred upon thin by Congress the right to regulate their own Domestic concerns according to their own to Ishea and inclinations.

If mid aug Lur among the democrats it is tiv posed that its purpose is to supp Tunt the Catholic religion and to ostracism every person who was not born upon american soil and everyone whose father was not in Here.

It i assumed by this association that the p i its of the Catholic Church sex or via Iii Iichi inure acc Over Mieir members. This May or my not be to. I to not profess to know. I have no affinities with lilo Catholic Church. I was reared under the teachings of the Shorter catechism a id the of Faith. There Are not fifty Catholic a or one Hundred naturalized or in my congressional District an hence my perfect exemption from any personal considerations in forming a judgment with reference to this new association. Suppose it True Puiul nit pri cuu in Uuie , we Nyji unite in condemning it fur to think Church on state should kept separate but this new Urgani Zhion proceeds to n Politico religious association secret holding its meetings clandestinely to counteract the priests. Tie end the is to justify the Means but two wrongs will not make one right the know nothings Dothe very thing which they complain of the priests for doing. I do not per Toivo any difference Between Catholic Jesuit ism and protestant arc intolerant. But in thin country i protest against a secret political organization which fears to avow Ita principles which shrinks from their discussion and which makes its members by secret pledge spies in every household. Oliero is no a Juuso 111 this country for secret political societies. Every measure in the Federal and state Legislatures undergoes Public scrutiny and debate. No Clu Izen in or ought to be afraid to avow his Nolti Oal sentiments Tif proceeding of this order shows that Thoy door say something which they Are afraid Ornaha Midforth wort to know it is time that the eyes of the country should to turned towards then and their be hems discount a sauced until they ast off the veil.
