It was so understood by the convention in this state which adopted the Constitution.

The cherish and sustain the or does no wrong in holding the labourer As a slave and by direct inference that it could he no sin for the Northern capitalists to hold the White Northern labourer in Complete servitude. They know and feel already the withering influence of slavery upon the reputation of their honest Industry lowering even in the free states the Standard of the Laborera a re Spectra Hil narrowing too perceptibly his proper sphere in society and connecting with his daily employment the degrading associations of Southern servitude. They have been branded in the Halls of Congress and in the Legislatures of Southern states Immo motion of the goddess on her own altar. Yielding this right or should have nothing left. The silence and the night of a dumb and unnatural despotism would Settle Over us. We might retain indeed the name of a Republic but would the name alone Avail us Venice was a Republic glorious among the nations which beheld her from afar a sepi Ilcare within. With her the inalienable rights of Man were utterly sacrificed to the fancied welfare of the Republic a vague abstraction of National interest apart from the happiness of the individual a soulless phantom of the Honor and the glory of the extract from or.

Not there exists no state necessity so imperative As to require the sacrifice of the in Constitution did not create the rights of the slave Holder. It imply a Lefi this whole painful subject where it found it. And i have yet to learn that ma.8�huseus, in entering into a Union with the a of Washingtonii Franklin Quot and Jay was t South gave her Sanction to slavery or pledged her relations of sir self to silence on the great question of human i rights. Tulita was out of her Power. She could not have done it without first blotting from her own a i glorious chatter those truths which have proclaimed Liberty through All her Borders. It had not then 1 i become fashionable to sneer at the declaration of Independence As a a fan Aronade of abstractions a or to Mere rhetorical flourish a and the reiteration of its doctrine that a fall men Are born free and equal a in the Hill of rights of Massachusetts was regarded As a living and practical reality. Its Efficacy had i might go on to quote still More to my purpose from the writings of the political fathers of our re Cuhlic. I leave it to Thysh to judge whether the by was not calculated a to disturb the relations of slavery quite As certainly As that of modern abolitionists and if so whether their offence ought not to have been a prosecuted As a Misdemeanour at common abolitionists Are attached to the Constitution by no common obligation. It is their guardian. The Providence r. I. Feb., 2, 1836. And what have our enemies to present As the Evi a of their Success Why for every s Tore of up that we have formed they can produce a Liot m their favor. For every speech that we have made in favor of Liberty they can show a brickbats or a Rotten egg or a bludgeon or a Dagger used in support of oppression. For every petition that to Nave put up to the throne of mercy they can adduce a sneer a threat or a malediction. And we Are Dis committed Forsooth this is the general proclamation. Then is Victory discomfiture then is continual Success continual defeat then is the Rise of the tide its ebb then is the Sun near its Meridian waning below the horizon of what then Are we confident Why that Nitti to More than a match for falsehood and that Liberty is mightier than Oppi Sion. Of what do we boast of our own strength and prowess no. But of the certain wog Reu of Kuma ii Tyr the wide regeneration of Public sentiment Gay that a foolishness of preaching a which is yet bring Down principalities and Powers a to emancipate a groaning world from the bondage of sin a and. To bring people of every Kindred tribe and nation into the glorious Liberty of the sons of god who Are we Nesses of the mighty conflict in which we Are engaged All heaven and Earth what is our statute Book the Bible who is our Leader not one on Earth but one in heaven Jehovah of hosts a therefore we will a give unto the lord a the glory due Viilo his name a but to the object of your convention. It is not a foreign nor a local nor a partial object. It is fraught with More than grecian or polish interest. It is emphatically a National object around which Are clustering momentous consequences a Universal results. It is to emancipate two millions and a half of our own countrymen from a Domestic tyranny incomparably More dreadful than that which caused All Egypt to be tilled with plagues and pharaoh and his Host be destroyed in the red 8ea. It is to save a million of the gentler sex from pollution Field labor and the lash. It is to put an end to an impure and disgraceful amalgamation. It is to restore the stolen babe to the arms of its frantic Mother and to reunite All the sundered ties of life. It is to suppress cruelty Stop the effusion of blood undo the Leavy Burden enlighten ignorance destroy the cause of insurrection abolish heathenism place our entire population under equal Laws and suffer none to stand beyond the Pale of the Constitution. It is to save enrich and bless the South by substituting two millions of free labourers animated by the Hope of Reward and the Prospect of happiness in the place of 2,000,000 of cattle goaded to madness by torture. It is to Avert the overshadowing judgments of almighty god from our nation by a a me by repentance. It is to Rescue As Many new victims of slavery in this country annually As Are stolen from Africa by All the kidnappers in the world. It is to make theory and the practice of the american people harmonious and perfect in righteousness so that we May no longer be a proverb a hissing and an Aston Stinem Tii it Terrt it it Tottoc Ocre Geory to the despotism a of the old world nor be guilty of the Awuila crime of self Marder it in Fine there is no interest of Man which Appertains to a is intellect his soul his m Ell being to to iii or does not seek to Advance no reverence for god and his commandments which it does not studiously consult. Was Ever a struggle like this yet More. In one half of our country we who 4 i Hon tested and it stood clothed in the supremacy of i the abandon i it of slavery would be nothing Nore than a practical adoption of the principles of. He Constitution of this Commonwealth and the dec a ration of 1776. It is Well known thata Orne of the 1 most distinguished signers of that declaration also signed the Constitution of the United states. Did they the men who had declared before god that All men were created ree intend to perpetuate slavery did they intend to bequeath it to their latest Posteri-1 Tyas an everlasting curse and to deny themselves i and their children even the privilege of Remon a Serences against it a Why then did they not in the preamble of the speak out boldly and plainly to the work a a Zih promote Ike general we fare impure do Nestie Tranquility and secure the bless mrs Liberty to ourselves and our posterity we establish slavery for Ever Benjamin Franklin signed both the declaration and the const Tulien. He was one of the most act live sup Portere of a the comp act a and was o f course perfectly Well acquainted with All its a a concessions and the rights and privileges of slavery. But he signed anther Constitution a few months after endorsing a the it was that of the a Pennsylvania society for the Ahn Livion if slavery Ibe preamble of which recognizes the doctrines which Are maintained by abolitionists of the present Day and expresses the a a incendiary desire of diffusing them a the mils of slavery of this society or. Franklin was elected president and or. Rush Secretary. In 1790,18 society presented to the first Congress a petition from which the following is an extract a a from a persuasion that equal Liberty was Origi anally the portion and is still the Birthright of All Meir a and influenced by the Strong ties of humanity and i the principles of their institutions your Memoria lists conceive themselves bound to use All Justi Fialele end Deavors to loosen the hands of slavery and promote f m general in Dyment of the blessings of Freedom. Under these impressions they earnestly entreat y our serious attention to the subject of slavery that you May be pleased to countenance the restoration to Liberty of those unhappy men who alone in a land of Freedom Are degraded into perpetual bondage and who amidst the general Joy of sir founding freemen Are groaning in Servile subjection that you will de time Means for removing this inconstancy from the character of the american people that you will promote mercy and Justice towards this oppressed acc and that you will step to the very verge of the Power vested in you for disco rang every species of Trail so in the persons of our fellow men.
