An awful responsibility rosts upon the

the citizens of this great cour. try will

Disguise it as you mav, union or disunion
is the question to be decided in Novem
ber. No man with a thimblefull of brains
in his head can fail to see that the tri
umph of a sectional party, whose avowed
ooject is to war upon the institutions of
the other half of the Confederacy, leads in
evitably to a disolution of the Union.
Hence it as that the Father of his Coun
try warned us to beware of sectional par
ties, and to indignantly frown upon tbe
firt nt'.cmpt to alienate one section sf
the Union from the other. "A house di
vided against itself cannot stand, holds
tiuu in tho political n well ps tbe relig
iojs world. Thy war of one section upon
the other section can have but or.eenu the
disruption ol the Confederacy. If contin
ued, it tnuht lead to estrangement, then
hatred, then open and iolenl altercations
and then the dissolution of the bonds
that bind us together as one people.-
How happily and how truly did the groat

Again, iu a speech delivered in Chicago
during the last Presidential election,
which we find published in tho Illinois
Stato Journa', the State organ of tho
black-republican party of Illinois, on the
lGth day or September, 185G, Mr. Lincoln
"That central idea, in our political op
inion, was and until recently continued
to be the equality or men. Ar.d, although
it was always snbmituA patiently to whatev
er inequality there seemed to bo as a mat

ing has been a steady progress toward the
PRACTICAL equality or all men.
"Let past differences as nothing be ; and,
with steady eye on the real issue, let us re
inaugcrate the good old central idea or the
Republic, W'e can do it. The human
heart is with us; God is with us. We
slull a;ain beahla not to. declare that all
the States, as Stales, are equal, but renew
the broader, better declaration, including
both these and much more, that all nun are

the 20th day of July, 1&3, Mr. 1 in coin

"Sir, I am proud to live in a Common -wciilth
whero every man, black or white,
'of every climo or race, is recognized iu a
a man, standing upon the terms of per
fect and absolute equality before the law.'
! App. Cong. Globe, 1st sess. "51th Cong.,
Senator Wilson made a mistake when
'.10 staled there was perfect equality in
Massachusetts. Such is not tho case. By
the laws of that State a foreigner cannot
vote in it for two years after he has been
'naturalized and a citizen of the Stale,
while a negro, under the same law ac-
I quires a vote after one year's residence !
! On the former occasion (psge l'JG-1) Mr.
'Fcssanden the black republican Senator
from Maine, held forth in this wise
pf the Lred Scott case. Tho Supreme
Court or Maine has decided that they arc
. entitled to a'.l the uriviicaes- that thev
stand upon perfect equality with white
men under the constitution and laws of

Here we have the black-republican Su
preme court or Maine actually nullifying
the decision of the Supreme court of the
United States, so intense is their love for
the negro! Is this not enough to startle
and alarm every lover of hii country !
Now listen to Cassias M. Clay, who was
the chif competitor against Hamlin for
tho nomination for the Vice Presidency in
he Chicago convention :
"Our Legislatures, Stato and Federal,
should raise tho platform upon which our
free colored people stand ; they shon Id give
lothtm the full political rights to hold itfice, to
vote to til on juries, to give their testimony to
make no distinction between them and oursAees.
The instrument called the Constitution,
efter pronouncing all men equal, and hav
ing equal rights, suffer slavery to exist, a
free colored persou to Le denied all polit
ical rights, and after declaring that all per
sons shall enjoy a free intercourse with
the States, sutlers the free negro to be
driven out of oil, tnd excluded from such
rights. Deliver me from such an instru
ment thus partial, thus unjust ; that can
be thus perverted, and made to sanction
prejudices and party feelings, an'l note
thn nccidoiil.nl distinct ion of color." j

Now, lei us hear from Horace (ireeley, '

brought about tho nomination of Lincoln.
As fur buck as tho 17th of January, IlCiI,
