After Reading a chapter and prayer or. Edwards was about to commence a lecture in order. Many of the opposition came into the House and inquiry was made by some two or three of the Lead Sra of the party whether or no we would debate on the subject if we would not they could net a Ameli in our safety for there were Many then in to in were becoming very turbulent.

This condemnation we Are dad to a receive is not confined to the papers of me free states but is pro noticed with few except oils that we have seen by those of the slave states in a manner so unqualified Manly and generous As to prove that they have a sympathy with the murderers of a citizen in Gam in the defence and exercise of his rights what renders these notices the More Gratifying is the fact that they Are More than a Ruamy free a those denunciations of mob lit Onisto with which every editor who has Ven turned to rebuke similar outrages in times past has thought it incumbent on him to qualify and dilute his censures. This shows an improved state of feeling and that there Are even in the slave holding states thousands of enlightened and Mignani Moos men who Are not so deeply enamoured of their a Peculiar institutions a As to see Jao Beauty in institutions of a More Noble and sacred character institutions securing to every citizen rights surely is sacred and inalienable As Are these of the slaveholder.

So View out our delegates thought by St to Mace a pledge of time thousand dollars which a consequence of the mobs in Cincinnati and the destruction of the press they were unable to pay As the last on the Tutkus from the exercise of Powers strictly within the sphere of just legislation. Congressional it Ower Over the District has no such restraint. It reverses the whole Field of legitimate Legi Stion. All the Power of any legislature within its own jurisdiction Congress holds Over the District of Columbia. B it has been objected that the clause in question respects merely police regulation and that its sole design was to enable Congress to protect itself against mobs. But if the convention that framed the Constitution aimed to provide for a single Case Only Why did they vote for a a cases whatsoever a besides this clause was opposed Zamany of the state conventions because the Prant of rower was not restricted to police regulations but intended to a fall cases in the Virginia convention Geow Mason the father of the Irginia Constitution Patrick Henry or.

A the alacrity exhibit in this race of infamy is unparalleled in history. In their Servile eagerness to win the approbation of the slave holders they were deterred by no crime however Flag Titus. They have come and pro Strrm no themselves at their Friet. Be offered As a propitiation conscience Honor tiie liberties of their you Iviry Teri our Qoon Mon Constitution. They have been spurned away with contempt and loathing. Like ill trained hounds they have misunderstood the bidding of their masters and they Are suffering tote deserved smart of the lash.

In each of the states the legislature possesses a repress amp native sovereignty delegated pie Pihrt Gay the people through the constitutions the people thus committing to the a Isk Ture a portion of their sovereignty and specifying in their Cortti Tii ution the amount of Grant that the penile in any state where slavery exists have the Power to abolish i none w ill deny. If the legislature do not possess the Power it is because the people have reserved it to themselves. If they had lodged with the legislature a Power to exercise legislation in All cases whatsoever a they would have parted with their entire sovereignty Over the legislation of the state and so far Forth the a Isk Ture would Lave become the people clothed with a Timeir i actions and As Tuch Eom Detent Rittir tits the con finance of the Grant to 00 ail that me people might have done before the surrender of All their Sihrer consequently they would have the Power the Thrif Hovore by of tip District of Columbia exists somewhere. Where is it lodged with the if teens of the District they have no legs kure no representation in Congress Anc no political Power whatever. With Maryland Anc viagra la they have surrendered to the United states their a full and absolute right and entire sovereignty a and the people of the United states have committed to Congress by the Constitution the Power to a exercise exclusive Legi skotion in Al cases whatsoever Over such District thus the sovereignty of the District of Colum Hia is shown to reside solely in the Congress the United states and since the Power of the people of a state to abolish slavery results from their possessing entire sovereignty within the state so the Power of Congress to abolish slavery in the District fou Owa legitimately item its entire loue of Cairn wet iii the District.
