I'or seven long years did ihey labor to impress upon Lord North rind (iitoiti;.: Ill, ihe virtue and power of this "rent fundamental Irulh in the science of government.

Since ih.at day lo the present lime it has been gaining strength in all civilized coun tries. American e;;pericnc,e bus fully solved and settled tho problem of man's ability for self-government.

Who will Ihen at this day d.,ubl the tittiCss of the Ameri can people to disposo of any ipiesiioti of governmental policy found wathin the limits of tho Constitution ?

Whoever says these things doubts all the principles of our republican institutions, and disre gards tho lessons of experience and the teachings of ihe sages of the revolution. Wo have already intimated, lhat we will not discuss the abstract and somewhat difficult questions of Congressional power, which has grown out of the slavery con troversy in ihe balls of the national legis lature. We care not to decide, where so many eminent men have differed, w hether Congress has the power to establish or abolish tho institution in the territories.
