I Tne repeal of tne Missouri Restric
tion, and the attempt to loice slavery
up in Kansas by fraud and violence,
piecip.tated upon the country a con
diet between the antagoui-tic systems
of free and servile labor. In the issue
of tiiis conflict is involved the demo
cratic cnaracter of our institutions of
'government, and the independence*
digui.y and rights -f the tree wiiite
lauor jng an and his posterity.
Slavery is tiio deadly enemy of lire
labor. The two c •- xist on the
same ficid ot enteipiise. Kituei ia

or it will sink into dependence and

intelligence and power. it stands

It ■ ustai is ly its eucrgie > all the uou'e
iiialitutlous of a refined and perfectly
developed social life. It is tile -ource
of oui ptosperiiy and national great
ness. Slavery is labor in igu-.ranee
mid chains— a brutalized humanity,
stimulated to industry by the lasli of a
mastei. It makes the laborer an ar
ticle of merchandize, with out ai . - 'i
without hope. In the place of mi In

his lite the honor and inteoests of his
country, slavery gives to the State an

iou It eudaug *r.s the social fabric by
converting its great element of
strength into an implacable enmity.
Never, ii* the history of partisan
waiiare, were men more unjustly and
petseveiirigly misrepresented than are
the .pponeiils of the extension of slave
ry, and l ie weapons it is necessitated
to employ, and ( artly from the fact—
ho omnipotent has the 61a ve Power
benine in our government —that sup
poit of its every eerriand is made tne
single test of party fidelity, and lite on

thereby—in so far as the National
C4"*erumerit can nnjiose disabilities—
almost as much an alien and outlaw
as is the slave hitn-elf. If the freemen
of liie North consent to occupy iucn
a subordinate position in the goveru
metr of ttie i country, the spirit .f
manly independence will be siushed
out in t eir posterity. Out sous wiii

It is the inevitable rettibution of

substance of our liberties, and the hap

Reason, and the calm judgment of an

terror to slaves* Imaginary dangers
become realities to the timid—to the
