Again, in a speech delivered in Chicago
during the last Presidential election,
which we find published in the Illinois
State Journal, the State organ of the
black-republican party of IIMnnis, on the
16th day of September, 185G, Mr. Lincoln
"That central idea, in our political op:
inion, was and until recently continued
to be the equality of men. And, although
it wa always submitted patiently to whatev
er inequality there seemed to bo as a mat
tcr of actual necessity, its constant work
ing hss been a steady progress toward the

"Let past differences as nothing be ; and,

Yet, again, in his sjeech at Chicago on
the 20th day of July, 1858, Mr, Lincoln
said t . ... r '

See the volume of the debates between
Lincoln and Douglas, which have been re
vised by Mr, Lincoln since hist nomination
for the ..'residency, pages 23, 24. Salmon
P. Chase twice elected Governor of Ohio,
and elected last winter United States Sen-
atoi from that State, was presented with
a silver pitcher by the negroes of Cincin
r.sttion the 6th ot May, 1845. In response
to the presentation he said :
"In what I have done I cannot claim to
have acted from any peculiar coniidera-
tion of tiio colorec people as a se poralo
and distinct class in the community, but
from the simple conviction that all the in

The Hon. Henry Wilson, United States
senator from Massachusetts, in a speech
delivered in the Senate on the 5th day of
May, 1858 tniJ :
"Now, Mr. President, I live in a Com

App. Cong, Globe, lstscss. 31th Cong.,
Senator Wilson made a mistake when
ho stated there was perfect equality in

, the laws of that State a foreigner cannot
. vote in it for two years after he has been
naturalized and a citizen of the State,
whilo a negro, under the same law ac
quires a vote after one year's residence 1
Un the former occasion (page l'.04) Mr.
ressanden the black republican Senator
'entitled to a'.l the privileges-that they
stand upon perfect equality with white
men under the constitution and laws of
tho State. They are voters and recogniz
ed ai citizens under the terms of the con
stitution, which allows any citizen to
Here we hare the black-republican Su
preme court of Maine actually nullifying
tbe decision ot tho Supremo court or the
United Stales, so intense is their lore for
the negro I i Is this not enough to startle
and alarm every lover of his country 1
Now listen toCassius M. Clay, who was
the chif competitor agaiost Hamlin for
the nomination for the Vice Presidency in
he Chicago convention t
"Our Legislatures, State and Federal,
should raise the platform upon which our
free colored people stand ; they thou Id give
tolhrm the fuh political right tt hod office, to
vote t tit on juries, to give their testimony to
make no dittinetion between them and ourselves.
The instrument called the Constitution,
flier pronouncirg all men equal, and hav
ing e.msl rights, sutlers slaverv to exist, a
free colored persou to be denied all polit
ical rights, and after declaring that sfl per
sons shall enjoy a free Intercourse with
the States, suffers the free negro to be
driven out of oil, and 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, and note
the accidental distinction of color."
This black-tepublican maniac ravos at
the Constitution because it does not guar
anty the equality of the necro with the
white man 1 .
Now, let ns hear from Horace Grenlev.
"the chief cook and bottlo'waahnr" in thn
Chicago convention, whose efforts there
Drought about the nomination of Lincoln.
Aa far back as the 17th of January, 1851,
Greeley thus spoke in his 7Vi'6w :
"We loathe and detest all laws which
give or withhold political rights on ac
count of color. 'A man's a man for a
that and ought to have the full rights of j

Again, in 1855, we see him pronosins
and urging the nomination for Congress
of tbat notorious negro. Fred. Douelass.
Just listen to him;
Among the candidates put np bv the

on Wednesday, is Mr. Frederick Douglass,
of Monroe county, who is nominated for

Mr. Douglass will not persist in urging
his election to the office for which he is
nominated, but will make every prepara

Now, hear tbe old apostle of black-republicanism,
Joshua R. Giddings. In his
speech in the Houbo, December 18, 1855,
Mr. Giddings sai l :
"This Government was founded for the
purpose, design, and end of 'securing all
men under its jurisdiction in tho enjoy
ment of life, liberty, and happiness.' It is
now placed in our hands. On this rock

When questioned in the House of Kept
rcientatives, the Hon. N. T. Banks, after
wards elected Speaker of the House, and
governor of Massachusetts, by the black
lepublieans, declared his inability to de
cide whether the white or tbe black was
the superior race, but leave the question
to bo dec! Jed by absorbtion or amalgamation t
"io for as ho had studied the subject of
races, he bad adapted tho idea that when
thero is h weaker race in existence, it
will succumb to, and be absorbed in, the
stronger race. This was the universal law
as regarded the races of men in the world.
In regard to the question, whether the
white or the black race was superior, he
proposed to wait until time should de
velop whether the while race should ab
sorb the black, or the black absorb th white."
In this country tho doctrine of negro
equality presents itself in a two-fold as
pect. To the people of tho North it says,
"You must strike down all laws which
erect a barrier between yott and the black
man, he is hour equal, entitled to vote,
hold ollice, sit at the same table with you,
and marry your daughters. You must
giva him the tamo political and social
rightsyou enjoy, for ho is your equal and
entitled to ttiem!" Arn the people of
the North prepared for thisT If yea, vote

In addition to the extracts we have al
ready given from Mr. Lincoln's speeches,
wherein ho contends that the negro is the
equal of the whito man, and is entitled to
his liberty, and, as a necessary conse
quence, cannot righttully or legally be
held as a slave, we tind him, in a letter to
the republicans of Boston, under da to of
April 13, 1859, again denying the right of
property in a slave :
"The democracy of to day hold the lib
erty of one man to be absolutely nothing
when in conflict with another man s riht
of property. Republicans on the contra
ry, are for both the man and the dollar,
but, in case of conflict, the (negio) Hum be

pcided language .

men are created equal, one man cannot
rightfully exact the service or the labor
of another man without his consent. The'

or service, subverts that equality between'
tbe parties which the Creator established."'
Hon. Charles Sumner, senator froru
Massachusetts, whom the black republi
cans have almost doitied, in his rocont
speech in the Senate, June 4, 1800, scouts
the idea that "man can hold property in
man ." Hear him s
"It is only when slavery is exhibited in'
its truly hateful character that we can ful
ly appreciate the absurdity ot tho assump
tion which, in defiance of tho Constitu-'
tion, yet foists into this blameless text
the barborous idea that man' can hold
property in man. Fore
most, of course, in these elements is the
impossible pretension, where barbarism is
lost in impiety, by which man claims prop
erty in man. Against suoh arrogance thee
argument is brief. There
is no sanction for such pretension ; no or
dinance fot it, or title."
Now, hear tho Hon. Mark Trafton, of
Massachusetts, in the House of Represen
tative., August 6, 1856:

all these ilaveholding laws have the same,

booty, that regulations among robber

I insist that any laws for enslaving men
have just the same force as the arrange

distributing their spoils."
The Hon. Daniel Clark, of New Hamp
shirn, in a speech delivered In tbe SnaU
February 20, I860, not only denios foi
himself, but for a large portion of the re
publican party, the doctrine that man can.
hold property in man. He said :
"Let it be understood, also, that vas'C
numbers of those who comprise the re
publican party, and of those who sympa
thize with it, deny the right of any tnaiv
or hody of men to hold or establish' prop
erty in man."
In this same vein spoke the old' Apoitlrs
of black-republicanism, Joshua R. Gid
dings, in the House' ot Representatives,
May, IG, 1854 :

demands that we should maintain the
