Speech of Senator Douglas at Norfolk
On Saturday evening Aug. 25th, Judge
Douglas delivered an address at Norfolk to
an audience of nearly six thousand people.—
The address_ occupied two hours in delivery.
The following is taken from a report in •the
.21 7 . Y. Herald:
In the middle of his address a slip of pa
per was handed to him. It was cut from the
Norfolk Daily Aefins, and contained two po
lite questions for Judge Douglas.
Having ascertained the questions thus pro
pounded, he said thereon, I am not in the
habit of answering questions propounded to
me in the course of an address, but on this
occasion I will comply with the request, and
respond very frankly and unequivocally to
these two questions.
The first question is, if Abraham Lincoln
be elected President of the United States
will the Southern States be justified in sece
ding from the Union ?
To this I emphatically 'answer " no."—
[Great applause.] The election of a man to
the Presidency by the American people, in
conf'n•mity with the Constitution of the United
States, would not justify any attempt at dis
solving this orious Confederacy. [Applause.]
Now I will read to you the next question, and
then answer it.
Question. If they, the Southern States,
secede from the Union upon the inauguration
of Abraham Lincoln, before he commits an
overt act against their constitutional rights,
will you advise or vindicate resistance by
force to their secession?
Voices. " No, no 1" " Bell men say no,
Mr. Douglas. I answer emphatically that
it is the duty of the President of the United
States, and all others in authority under him,
to enforce the laws of the United States as
passed by Congress and as the courts expound
them. [Cheers.] And I, as in duty bound
by my oath of fidelity to the Constitution,
would do all in my power to aid the Govern
ment of the United States in.maintaining the
supremacy of the laws against all resistance
to them, come from what quarter it might.—
[Good.] In other words, I think the Presi
dent of the United States, whoever be may
he, should teat all attempts to break up the
Union, by resistance to its laws, as old Hick
ory treated the nullifiers in 1832. [Applause.]
The laws must be enforced, but, at the same
time, be it remembered, it is the duty of every
citizen of every State, and every public func
tionary, to preserve, maintain,
the rights of every citizen and the rights of
every State in the Union, I hold that the
Constitution has a remedy for every grievance
that may arise within the limits of the Union.
I am very frank in answering these questions.
I am not in favor of any policy which would
tend to give rise to complaints or murmurings,
much less to such as would call for resistance
from any quarter. I acknowledge the inhe
rent and inalienable right to revolution when
ever a grievance becomes too burdensome to
be borne. I acknowledge the right of every
man to rebel and change the form of govern
ment under which he lives whenever it proves
destructive to the ends for which it was es
tablished. That is a right, however, never
to be resorted to until the operations of the
government become more grievous than the
consequences of revolution. And therefore
I say that the mere inauguration of a Presi
dent of the United States whose political opin
ions were in my judgment hostile to the Con
stitution and safety of the Union, without an
overt act on his part, without a blow tit our
Constitution or our rights, is not such a griev
ance as -would justify revolution or secession.
[Cheers.] Hence, I say, whoever may be
elected President of the United States, he
must be sustained in the exercise of all his
just constitutional prerogatives and powers.
If he transcends them we will punish him
with all the rigor of the law, as you punished
John Brown when he violated your laws.—
[A storm of applause.]
I, for one, will sus
tain with all my energy the President when
ever he may be in the exercise of all the pow
ers conferred upon him by the Constitution,
but I would take just as much pleasure in
hanging him if he transcended those powers,
as I feel pleasure in knowing that you hanged •
John Brown when he was guilty of murder
and treason against the State of Virginia.—
[Renewal of storm.]
I am a law-abiding man, a Union-loving
man, and I believe the Union can be main
tained by a faithful observance of the Con
stitution, but I insist in exacting the fulfil
ment in good faith of every provision of that
Constitution ; I insist on a. line of policy
which will place all the people of all the
States in an exact equality, and maintain
and protect them in their just rights, but
which will also compel obedience to the Con
stitution and the constituted authorities of
the country. Now, these questions, put to
me the first day I landed on Virginia soil,
having emanated from the friends of the Se
cessionist candidate, I ask that like questions
may be also put to those candidates, and that
you insist upon such frank and unequivocal
answers as I have given.
A Voice. "They could not do it square."
Mr. Douglas. Remember that Mr. Brock
inridge was nominated on the theory that the
election of Lincoln was preferable to that of
no man doubts that if Brock
inridge's friends had not seceded at Balti
more, but had acquiesced in the legitimate
action of the Convention, I would have in this
contest beaten Lincoln by the popular vote.
A Voice. "That's so."
Mr. Douglas. Less than one-third of the
Convention seceded from the two-thirds, on
the ground that Southern honor and Southern
rights were not safe in my hands, and that
hence it was necessary to divide the party in
every State of the Union, so that Lincoln
might have a chance of running in between
the Democratic forces of the Democratic
party, and get elected by a majority vote.
A Voice. " That's so."
Mr. Douglas. The only ostensible and
true object sought in making a Breckinridge
ticket in the Northern States was to divide

divide the Democratic party so as to give Lin
coln every one of those States, so that I tell
you if Lincoln be elected President it be
the Secessionists whom you will have to blame
A Voice. " That's so."
Mr. Douglas. Lincoln has no hope of be
ing elected except through the efforts of the
Secessionists, who have divided the Demo
cratic party—supposing that Breckinridge
could carry every Southern State—thoug;l it
now seems ho is not going to carry a single
one by the people. Still by dividing the
North, he gives every one of the States to
Lincoln, thus allowing him to be elected by
the popular vote. Why, what was the true
aspect of the contest before the secession ?
Lincoln bad no show whatever for more than
two States till the Breckinridge division took
place, and I would have beaten him in every
State but Vermont and Massachusetts. As
it is, I think I will beat him in almost all of
them yet. [Cheers.] But should Lincoln be
elected, the Secessionists, who nominated and
now support Breckinridge, will be entitled
to the credit of it, and upon them will rest
the responsibility of having adopted the fatal
policy, and dreading the result of their own
rash and unpatriotic acts which give to Lin
coln a chance of success, :ley come forwa"d
and ask me if I will help them to dissolve tire
Union in the event of Lincoln being raised to
the Presidential chair. I tell them no—never
on earth. [Cheers and cries of " Good."] • I
am for putting down Northern Abolitionism,
but am also for putting down Southern Se
cessionists, and that, too, by the exercise of
the same constitutional power. [" Good."] I
believe that the peace, the harmony and the
safety of this country depend upon destroying
both factions. [Cheers.] Both parties, if
parties they can be called, are allies in a
common cause; for however hostile they may
be to each other, however opposed in purposes
and objects, yet their course of action tends
to the same deplorable result ; and without
meaning any disrespect or personal unkind
ness, I believe that, in the event of the soe
cess of either party, the success of Northern
Abolitionists orthat of Southern Secessionists,
the Union, and our glorious Constitution are
alike put in peril and danger. Northern
Abolitionism could not exist for any length
of time, except there was a counterpoise de
manding the intervention of the South. The
Republicans demand Congressional interfer
ence against slavery, while the Secessionists
demand that Congress shall interfere to pro
tect and extend slavery. This is the piv•it
upon which both parties turn ; this, my
friends, is the whole state of the case; those
are tbe dangers to be apprehended, !un..l ;.has
it devolves upon you to rally to the rescue,
and by voting the National Democratic ticket
placed before the country by the Baltimore
Convention, to preserve this glorious Union-.
[Cheers and cries of " And we will do it."]
His speech has made a most favorable im
pression here in Norfolk. Numbers of Breck
inridge men publicly proclaim defection from
that party and their adherence to Douglas.
The Bell and Everett men stand fast to their
colors, and are sanguine of the - success of
their men. They will certainly carry this State.
On Monday Mr. Douglas will visit Old
Point Comfort, and thence proceed to Peters
burg. He will address the people there on
Tuesday, and proceed to Raleigh to attend a
Convention to be held on Thursday next.—
He will speak there, and then proceed to
Richmond. Ile halts there, and addresses a
public meeting on Friday.
[From the Harrisburg Daily State Sentinel.]
The papers devoted to the Yancy-Breckin
ridge cause, are.continually harping upon the
fairness of the Cresson Compromise. They
cannot understand, they say, why a proposi
tion so fair should not command general re
spect, and why the true Democrats of Penn
sylvania should object to giving it their uni
ted support. Saying nothing about the ine
quality of the action of the Committee, who,
refusing to call a new State Convention io
take counsel as to what had better be done
in the emergency that has arisen, attempt,
without authority, arbitrarily to force this
so-called compromise upon an unwilling con
stituency ; cannot these organs understand
that there is a higher standard of morality
than is found among mere party hacks, a
sturdy honesty that always battles for princi
ple and truth, a manhood that scorns dicta
tion ? If they could, they would comprehend
why true men refuse to clasp hands with trai
tors; why men, within the party organization,
refuse to act with those without ; why men,
clearly in the majority, refuse to recognize a
seceding minority ; why men desire to vote
for that candidate who they believed to be
regularly nominated; why men who believe
that the doctrine of non-intervention and pop
ular sovereignty is the very foundation up'on
which our republican _institutions are built,
and vital to their perpetuity, refuse to vote, on
derany contingency for Congressional inter
vention, and Executive despotism.
Again, they say, if* the true Democracy of
Pennsylvania vote a straight-out electoral
ticket for their gallant standard-bearer, Ste
phen A. Douglas, Lincoln will carry the State.
If this be so, will it not clearly be the fault
of the bolters from the regular Democratic
Convention, at Baltimore, who have since
arrayed themselves under the disunion ban
ner of Yancy and Rhett? We appeal to the
common sense of every intelligent Democrat
in the State for the truth of the assertion,
that at no time, and under no circumstances,
could Mr. Breckinridge carry Pennsylvania,
standing as he does on the Richmond slave
code platform ; -while, on the other hand, it is
equally clear that Mr. Douglas, in the absence
of the bitterly malignant war waged upon
him by the Buchanan Administration, and
with a united Democracy, could sweep the
State by thirty thousand mrjority.
In view of these facts, is it not manifest
that, if the bolters continue " Young Mr.
Brecdinridge" in the field, it will not be with
any hope of electing him, but for the purpose
of giving the State to Lincoln.
These Yancy-Breckinridge organs profess
to mourn over a divided Democracy, and ex
hort the Douglas men to join in this fusion

scheme, only to cover up their deep-laid dis
union plans. They do not want, nor expect
such a result. We believe that the illogical
and absurd combination, called the Cresson
Compromise, was 2ntipos.cly so arranged that
no true Democrat could give it his sanction,
without sacrificing his honor and the integ
rity of his position.
While these gentlemen are talking to us
of the binding force of State organizations,
and holding us bound to support the electo
ral ticket formed at Reading, even though a
majority of those composing it refuse to obey
the instructions of the Convention that
breathed them into life ; their partizans in
Illinois and Indiana, are trying to push a
Breckinridge electoral ticket, where the friends
of Douglas control the State organizations by
an overwhelming majority.
In New - York, too, where the only hope of
defeating Lincoln lies in the Douglas-Bell
fusion, and where the co-operation of the
Breckinridge men would render his defeat
certain, these professed advocates of peace
and harmony have put in nomination a sepa
rate electoral ticket, and are calling upon
DerhoPrats to rally toiSs support. Out upon
such hypocrisy ! Their insincerity and
double dealing are too apparent to require
further co.,iment or notice.
Again, say these sapient organs, they cannot
understand upon what principle the friends
of Douglas refuse to act with the Breckinridge
seceders and interventionists of the North,
while they favor the Bell and Everett move
ment in the South. They cannot understand
that there is a patriotism and love of country
deeply enshrined in the hearts of the Ameri
can people that rises above all party ties;
that the Union movement in the South is a
great uprising of the people, determined to
crush out sectionalism and disunion in that
section, as the Douglas party are earnestly
striving to do in the North, and that, ignor
ing the dead past, they meet to-day on this
common ground. They cannot apparently
understand how in case of a meeting on board
a ship at sea, when the Captain, surrounded
by the true men at one end of the vessel, and
the mutineers at the other, just preparing to
cut each others throats, their further move
ments are arrested by a cry of fire ; and, uni
ted by a common danger, they rush to the
pumps and vie with each other in acts of he
roism and devotion to the general cause,
We presume that from their stand-point
they cannot understand how any Democratic
I journals can remain true to principle when
they can get their thirty pieces of silver for
i betraying it. In fine they cannot understand
/ anything, that does not square with their in
vie Ns, vi- lie,- - within the scope of
' their own limited horizon.
Democracy in 1856
It is well to turn hack and see how south
ern men understood the Cincinnati Platform
in 1856. The following testimonials are but
few among the thousand uttered by them :
"The right to prohibit slavery in any
Territory belongs esclusivsly to the people
thereof.—Jackson (Tennessee) Resolutions,
Reported by C. F. JACK.SON, March 20, 1849.
" That the power under the Federal Con
stitution to regulate slavery in the Territo

The people of a Territory, like those of a
State, shall decide for themselves whether

I am connected with no party that has for
its object the extension of slavery, nor with
any to prevent the people of a State or Terri

The majority of the people, by the action

The principle of self-government in the

It is the right of the people to govern

A. P. BUTLER, of S. C.
Under the Kansas act, citizens from the

Editor and Proprietor
Crittenden on Douglas and Breckinri age.
We publish below an extract from a speech
recently made at Louisville, by that far-see
ing and patriotic statesman, Hon. J. J. Crit
tenden. In alluding to the several candidates
for the Presidency, Mr. C. thus compares the
Democratic nominee Stephen A. Douglas, and
the nominee of the disunionists and secession
ists, John C. Breclonridge : -
I know Mr. Douglas very well, ladies and
gentlemen. From Mr. Douglas, personally,
I should apprehend no danger. I have never
been a Democrat, as you all know. A frank,
fair, and honest opponent of the Democratic
party, I have ever been acting upon Wiiig
principles, from the first to the last. But I
have known Mr. Douglas in the public coun
cils, and have acted with him. Although
generally opposed, and especially upon party
questions, we have at times acted together, par
ticularly upon one momentous occasion, when
we acted together in opposition to that infa
mous Lecompton Constitution. Mr. Douglas
was there making a great sacrifice to his sense
of duty. lle was sacrificing his connection
on that occasion with many old political
friends ; he was sacrificing as flattering pros
pects for the highest office in the Government
as any man in the country had. I fully be
lieve he did what he conceived to be his duty;
and, in defiance of all opposition, the rack of
the President, pretended friends, and open
foes, he acted like a man. He might have
been mistaken in what he did, but that little
diminished the value of the act. lie thought
he was right, and knew he was making a
sacrifice, and he was capable of making it when
he believed the interests of his country de
manded it. I can have no quarrel with him;
he is a Union man. And a Union man I can
always trust, when I believe him to be sin
cere and in earnest, as I believe Douglas to
Mr. 0. proceeded to argue that the Bell and
Everett platform was sufficient, and showed
that a great deal more was said about the
Territorial slavery question than it deserved.
He illustrated the state of the case by the fol
lowing story :
Two Italians were walking out together on
a bright midsummer night. One looked up
to the heavens, thick with innumerable stars,
and exclaimed, "Oh, that I had a farm as
spacious as the heavens ; that would be an es
tate worth having 1" His companion exclaim
ed, "0, that I had a herd as numerous as the
stars above l" "Well„".said the other.
, inaL would you do with such
an enormous herd ?" "Why," said he, "I
would turn them on to your farm." "You
would, aye ?" sneered the other. "Yes, what
else could Ido with them ?" Upon that tkey
quarrelled and fought fur an hour. Now, it
does seem to me that we are about to make
just such a moonshine sort of a case.
I have spoken not to compliment Mr. Doug
las merely ; I have spoken because I desiro
to give my testimony to his truth. I believe
Mr. Douglas to be a patriot, and I know him
to be a Union man by all the evidences that
one public man can give another of his senti
ments. He is a generous, bold man, speak
inc, what he thinks, and doing what he knows
to be right. But lam opposed to Mr. Doug
las. lam for Bell and Everett.
JOHN C. BRECKINIUDGE
And here again; as in respect to Mr, Doug
las, my objection is not to the candidate as
an individual. I should hope that Mr. Breck
inridge is not a disunion man. 1 A voice—
Yes, he is.] He ought not to be. He belongs
to a tribe of faithful, devoted Union men—
the tribe of Kentuckians. He must have
been seduced away from the path of his duty,
far from the path in which all the impulses
of his blood ought to carry him, if he has be
come a disunionist. But Mr. Breckinridge
has made himself the head of a party. He
rs , part and parcel of the present purposes of
that party ; and, assn the case of Mr. Lincoln,
we must judge of his public course by the
party that he consents to represent.
Who are they ? There is not a disunionist
south of Mason and_ Dixon's that I know of
who does not belong to that party. We have
for a long time heard mutterings of disunion
in the South—more than mutterings—morn
than the whisperings of such sentiments.—
We have seen them proclaimed by high men
in high places.

DENUNCIATION OF SOUTHERN DISUNION ISIS.
These sentiments pervade the South, and
make up the body and soul of the party which
has nominated our fellow-citizen, Mr. Breck
inridge, as its candidate for the Presidendy.
Is there no danger that by electing him you
would give new energy to that destructive
impulse, and new power to this disunion sen
timent, and to the cause of disunion ? Mr.
Breckinridge himself follows in the lead.—
He is part and parcel of the great party.—
You see this by his nomination and accep
tance of it, and can hence foresee with clear
ness the disasters that would follow his suc
cess. Possibly it may be the policy of those
who nominated him to unite Old Kentucky
to this new Confederacy. Old Kentucky is
quite an important State in this Union. She
is in the heart of it—she is the heart of it.—
To obtain her concurrence is of the greatest
possible consequence to those who fancy that
they can make a Republic in the South more
glorious and more prosperous than the great
Republic of which we form a part. Such
ave been their plans now for along time. Ken
tucky and Tennessee, which old Gen. Gaines
called the two military States of the Union,
have lain in the way of that sort of treachery
to the Union. They are two States not easi
ly overcome, and though I would not dimin
ish the honor of Mr. Breckinridge's nomina
tion, as he himself conceives it, yet I imagine
there are thousands in the South who would
go for Mr. Breckinridge mainly in the hope
that it might be the means of annexing Ken
tucky as a sort of frontier province to this
Southern Republic of Cotton States that is to
be made. If they can bring about that union,
ifthey can bring over old Kentucky and make
her an ally of their scheme for the dismem
berment of this Confederacy and the erection
of a seperate republic, it would he a matter
of very little consequence 'whether Mr. Breck
inridge was elected or not.
DESERTING THE Da UNIONISTS.—The M
gomery (Alabama) Confederation, twits tile
Breekinridge and Lane men of its neighbor
hood with the news from North Carolina, io
this fashion :
" Anothe‘ elector in North Carolina Jute
written a letter declining to advocate the
cause of Brvekinridge, Yancy, and disunion.
Ilaygood first declines, and declares for
Douglas ; Dr. Keen follows, and does the
same; Hon. H. W. Miller•declines, and 'goes
fur Dell ;' and now Powhatan Bouldin de
clines, and says that he believes Douglas to
be the regular nominee, and intends giving
him his unwavering support. Poor Breckin
ridge! Defeated in Kentucky, frightened
almost to death in North Carolina, and rout
ed completely in Missouri, what will become
of him ?"
Truly, it will need Spaulding's glue to
stick the Breckinridge ticket together in the
"Old North State." The Confrderation
groans with them. Poor fellows! So many
of them were after office, and their anticipa
tions, of course, were high. Now they are
doomed, and many have the honesty to ad
AGREEABLE INFORITATION FOR PORK-EAT
ERS.—The Academic des Sciences of Paris
has just received a communication, which
has literally caused the quills upon that fret
ful porcupine to stand on end with horror.—•
A savant of Wurtzbourg, iI. Wirchow by
name, announces the fearful discovery be
has made of the existence of a dreadful mi
croscope animal, truchina .sparatis, in the'
flesh of hogs, no matter how it is prepared,
whether you call it pork, ham, bacon, sau
sage, or bologna. When an individual hap
pens to eat of this animal in abundance, he
is observed to grow pale and emaciated in a
few days afterwards; his strength deserts
him and he dies at the end of the sixth
week. A postmortem examination shows
the muscles of the body to be filled with
truchina sparalis, which proves that death
must be occasioned by muscular consump
tion, owing to the attacks of this horrible
little monster. Moses knew well what he
was about when he forbade the use of swine's
flesh to his countrymen.—London Star.
THE MISTAKES OF THE PRESS.—The most
laughable case of "mistakes of the printer"
is that where there had been two articles pre
pared for the paper (one concerning a sermon
preached by an eminent divine, and the oth
er about the freaks of a mad dog,) but, un
fortunately, the foreman in placing them in
to the form, "mixed" than, making the fol
lowing contretemps :
"The Rev. JAMES TUOMPSON, rector of St.
Andrew's Church, preached to a large con
course of people on Sunday last. This was
his last sermon. In a few weeks he will bid
farewell to his congregation, as his physician
ad vices him to cross the Atlantic. He exhort
ed his brethren and sisters, and after the
expiration of a devout prayer, took a whim to
cut up some frantic freaks. Ife ran up tim
othy street to Johnson, and down Benefit
street to College. At this stage of the pro
ceedings, a couple of boys seized him, tied a
tin kettle to his tail, and he again started.—

was a grand scene of noise, running and

It is stated that the proprietor of a paint
factory in New York State has accidentally
made a discovery which threatens to revolu
tionize horticulture. One of the factory
hands having thrown some liquid green
paint of a particular kind on a flower bed,
occupied by anemones, the flowers have
since made their appearance with petals
green as grass. The paint had in it a pecu
liar and very penetrating and chemical mix
ture, which has since been applied, with•
other colors, to other plants, annual, biennial
and of the shrub kind —the result being in
variably that the flowers so watered took
the hue of the liquid deposited at their roots.

SINGULAR USE FOR DOGS.—Edward Sydner,
of Hanover, bra., has two pointer dogs, which
can worm more tobacco in a day than any
two hands he owns. The dogs run along the
furrows and show the greatest sagacity in
detecting worms, finding them by the scent
and eye. They never injure the plants and
where the field hands overlook the insects the
dogs are sure to find them. The animals de
vour the insects eagerly, and never give up
the chase until they become completely
