rough-looking man ; it was rather dark,
bat tho party had ft moustache. Did not
recognize the third party among ihe pris

wore a moustache, and wore fashionablo
clothes. The witness could not on ac

Tho tcstimonry taken before tho doors

the topographical department, on Ihe

twenty miles from Staunton,
lie became acriainted with three citi-

of tho Confederacy, and lie told them that
after aich a chase as 'he rebels had then
got from Gettysburg, he believed it looked
rather gloomy.
Booth told that was nonsense, and a 1 1-
ed; ' If wo only act our part right the Con-
federiuy will gain its independence, and
old Abo Lincoln auist go up "the ppout."

So much for the honored Senator from
Illinois and r doctrines. 1 stated in
the beginning that what 1 was saying iu
reference to the Senator from Illinois, was
lamer outside ot tho line nf remark
1 1 . .
1 1 l? mao;on the occasion. I
"'at I should endeavor to show
I recent,
demonstrations made at
Harper s rerry had been the legitimate
result of certain teaching for a ;reat
number of years in this county. I shall
begin by calling tho attention of tho Sen
ate and the country to doctrines promul
gated in rcferenco to the North and
South prior to the year 1800, about ten
years alter the Fedoral Government was
formed. I propose to read an extract from
the fourth volume of Mr. Jellerson's
woiks, an entry under tho head of Decem
ber U, 1W3 ;
"Tho Rev. Mr. CofTm of New ling
land, w ho is now here soliciting donations
lor a college in Green county, Tennessee,
tells me that when ho first determined to
engsgj in this enterprise, which he meant
to got signed by clergymen, and a similar
one for parsons in acivil character, at the
head of which he wished Mr. Adams to
put his name, he being the President of
iho UniteJ Slates, and the application go
ing only for his name, and not for a dona
tion, air. Adams, after reading tho pa
per and considering, said ho saw no posi
bilty of continuing tho Union of tho
States; that their dissolution must neces
sarily take place ; that ho, therefore, saw
no propriety in recommending lo New
Fnglaml men to promote a literary insti
tution in the South ; that it was, in fact,
giving strength to those who were to be
their enemies ; and (herrforo, he would
have nothing to do with it."
Thus we lied thai prior lo tho year 1300,
when a simple application wns made to
the elder Adams for the ue of his name
by a New England man, the Rev. ditties
Collin, to solicit subscriptions to aid in
building up an institution in Urn South,
it was refused on the tiround that the
South would uiiima(ev "become, and p
North : and that as dissolution would fi
nally talce place, it was a bad investment
for northern men to put their funds in
southern institutions. 1 referred to this
ciic jmstance, which is familiar to me, as
a beginning point, as a specimen brick of
the building out of which this whole fab
ric, has been reared against the South and
southern institutions, lulho 27lh Cou tho extra session, John Quincy
Adams said, upon tho celebrated 2lsi
rule, prohibiting tho reception ofaboli
tiuu petitions :
"lie would say that, if tho frro portion
of this Union were called upon to expend
their blood and their liensure to support
that cause which had tho curse and tho
displeasure of tho Almighty upon it, lio
would say that this same Congress would
sanction an expenditure of blood and of
treasure, for that cause itself would
come within tho constitutional action of
Congress ; that there would be no longer,
any pretention that Congress had net the
right to interfero with ihe institutions of
tho South, inasmuch a Iho very fact ol
Ihe people of a free portion of the Union
marching to tho support of the masters,
would be an interference with those in
stitutions ; aud that, in the event of a war
(the result of which no man could tell)
the treaty-making power comes to be e
quivalent to universal emancipation."
And do wo not seo tho wholo idna, to
got up a foray, make a descent on a south
ern State, establish a provisional govern
ment, and if the Foderal Government is
called upon lo interfere, undr the treaty
making power, we will emancipate all
your slaves? This Idea has been longer
inculcated than many ar.' willing lo believe-
lir. Adam'ss speech continues :
"This was what he had then said ; and
he would add to it now, that, in his opin
ion, if the decisiou of tha House, taken
two days ago, should bo reversed, and a
rule establ sh -d that the House would re
ceive no petition on this subject, the peo
ple of the North would bo ipsoueto absol
ved from all obligation to obey auy call
from Congress."
Here is tho whole doctrine laid down
broad and wid, upon which these recent
depredations were to bo committed- Thoy
havo been tho result of teachings like
theso. Tho idua was thrown out as to
tho manner in which the Federal Govern
ment could be caused to interpose, and
how, by its interposition, under tho treaty-making
power, all tho southern slavos
were lobe emancipated- This was what
Mr. Adams said in the Twenty-Seventh
Congress sixteen years ago. About that
lime, in a letter written to tho Abolition
ists of Pittsburg, on the subject of anti
slavery societies, he said :
"On tho subjeot of abolition, abolition
sooieties, anti-slavery societies, or the lib
erty parly, 1 have never been a member
of any of them. But, in opposition to
slaver-, I go as far as any of these ; my
sentiments, 1 believe, very nearly accord
with theirs. That slavery will be abol
ished in this country, and throughout the
world, I firmly kelisve. Whether it shall
be done peaceably or by blood, God only
knows) but it will bo accomplished, I
have no doubt ; and, by whatever way, 1
say let it cowo."
If It 1st to come by blooi, let it come;
1 that his language then. Now, let me
ask my brethren of lb.9 North, what are
07 lur. A (hi ma IhA tannA. urrt
find in the letter, which I have just read,
that ho says he firmly believes the end
will come ; and, by whatever means, even
if it cornea by blood, let it come. Aro wo
prepared to submit to a slate of thinss
ilka Ihis r wa n K.... ...u
ings year after year, and behold the recent
developments, and say that we feel no ap
prehension? If I were to go into Iho

ken application of an old principle to an
imnrooer case, 'flier is a conflict always
going on between capital and labor ; but
there it not a conflict between two kinds
of labor. Bv sophistry and ingenuity, a

but there is a material uuicreii uin.-u..

between labar in the aggregate on tho one
hand and capital on the oihor.
Where is tho conflict ? We know that
as far as labor ond capital are concerned,
labor is always trying to gn as mucu cap-
ital for labor as it can ; on tne otuor nan i
capital is always trying to get as much la
bor for capital ns it can. Hence thero is
an oiernal warfare going on' between cap
ital and labor, labor wanting to absorb
capital and capital wanting to absorb la
bor. Does that make a conflict botween
two kinds of labor? Not at all. Where
