Abolition I'etitions-111r. WarnOP"
The t4usquehanna Register." has disposed of Mr t
Wilmot'sote on whit it is pleased to term the" gag-rule,"
—very csaliery. We prestime the mile referred to, (for
ve have um seen ii given at length, in any pro
tredings of the present session of Congress)—is the
nuk e, or similar to the resolution first -introduced by Mr.
Allmon in 1838—which provides " that every Memo:
vial arc tLuehing or relating to slavery, should, on pre ,
tati th reef wither' any further action thereon, be
on the table, without, being referred, printed or d o .
bear This was adopted by Congress, and remained
for a time, a stinding role of the House of Represents-
Mr. Nymot voted to rest° -e dais rule '; and for th is,
has been arraigned by the "Register," and the "Brad-
hid Argus." The former thinks his dereliction so plain,
that it scorns to argue the point, It phrases it a " gag
fide"—"tiolation of tbe sacred right of petition" ; and
what mor is necessary in the argument The " Brad-
ford Argus," is to treat of the subject hereafter, whenev
er it bassi:ace for the purpose.
We have said, we indorsed this vote of Mr.
.7 - 11=4
and profen to itold in as high esteem, the ConstituUonal
formation in regard to "the freedom of speech and of 1
the Few ;I t or the right of the people peaceably to anent-
we, (we quote the words of the sacred instrum ent itself,)
nod petition the Government for a retirees •of gyre' ti
crica"as either the "Argos," or the " Register." It
is tho' right of petition," which the abolitionists deem
ufriogol by the rule in question.
I A csl take up the Enbjem fairly, and in the first
place, define oar terms. The right to- petition, Is the
right to ask—to supplicate—to solicit ; and necessarily
implies an adverse right to deny—refuse, or _reject. It
is not, strictly speaking. i right to demand; for that
Involves the existences of.poWer or aotbotity on one side,
and subordination of free-will on the other. The right
totxtition, as contra-distinguished, implies perfect equal
ty in the two parties. in the exercise of volition. So far
—all is clear and conclusive..
It is Tally Plain, that 6ery individual in the corn- I
munity, may write, print, or publish in any form or lan
guage Itelehoo-es—(so always, that it is within the pare
of deancy and propriety,) a petition to Congress, or
any othar body of men ;—and has also a right to procure
others to sign it if he am. Nor is it any less-the right
of any individual to whom mien petition shall be offered,
to ascertain its purport and ultimate object, by reading it
hinwelf, Or relying upon the explanation of others. He
may then sign it if he incline'so to do—or,' if be yepudi
mei its principles and its , purposes—helms a nght-'tore
fuse to sign it, or even, to read, discuss, or , debate it,
whether yi l üblicly, or privately. r This, surely, can neither
be doubtfd, not denied. I
liow,lwe should hike to understand how electing so
individual to Congress, is to make suit aulomatemof him.
I, he not a freeman still; and is he leas a moral-agent
than refire !
We put a case, by way of illustration: Suppose Mr.
H, (ani hbolitionist) had called on Hr. Wilmot prod•
our to his being returned tor Congress, and said to him
—Mr. 1;lilmot, here is a petition to Congress demand
ing ihebolition of Slavery in the District of Columbia;
limb on would examine and sign it. "No sir"—re•
plies Mr. Wilmot, "WI 'Mind is made up` on that sub
ject; Ithink I understand the whole question, 'MI I will
neither Iread nor sign your petition. The , passage of
such an enactment by Congress ' s. you desire, would he a
rental infraction of the compact between the general Far
emmenLand the states of Virginia ' and MaryhtUd. The
most in ne and . fanatical abolitionist, could never sup
pose, that those states would have ceded riportiota of their
territori to the Union, if they hkd dreamed Congress
would assume the power to abolish Slavery ? , wins' t the
will oi l the people of the territory thus. ceded. Nor
did the General government, in adopting - the Dis

We look upon the abolition of Slavery by Congress,
in the District of Columbia, u a measure fraught with
the certain and immediate dissolution of the - Union. The
South hair again; and again, in' the most solemn language,
avowed her determination in this respect. This deter
mination, if we are to term*. her 'bleat statesmen, is not
the result of angry resentment—but springs from a calm
conviction 'of ihe'stenters necessity. ' If the Union is dia.
solved, the District of Columbil,Would of:course revert
to Maryland and-. Virginia; from whom it Was originally
derived; and unless those states had abolished , slavery,
any act of Congress to that' effect, Would beco me a nul-
lily. The abolitionists would find, though they had suc
ceeded in bleating one of the fairest fabrics of Govern.

When, the, isnow covers the ground the young
steers may be taken in hand:.We prefer cattle
that have been early issed..to the yoke. CaNee
should be halter-broken and handled, to make
them docile, if they 'are 'not put.iti the Yoke..
When Steers are wild it a good practice to
drive the pair infd.a close stable and yoke them
there. Take care and fasten the first one tight
when you put the yoke on. Don't let him run
and frighten himself and his companion. Bring
both together gently, add let.them have a little
ume,to become used to the'yoke. '
Most people who undertake tc break young
cattle are deficient in patience. _This virtue

will be necessary if yOu take time, and ]et the

Steers in the yoke should•. be taught . to move
backwards as well as forwards. 'This should
be very particularly attended to, unless you wish
to see your oxen back a cart with their heads to

should - alwaynholdtheir heads high to run back
'a loaded cart and they. will do. it if they fare
'properly. taught:. This brings.the yoke to bear
against the back of• the; head,. and the horns ;
and the throat is not compressed by the bows.
A light empty cart. or a light pair of Wheels,
shonld be first used to run back, and this should
be on sloping ground, where the wheels will
run easy. •Say, back!; distinctly, and hold yonr
whip before the cattle. bnt don't strike then; on
