Sir, :who are we, and in what age do we lire ?
Wl' are free and Christian people—lie ion iti the
middle of the nineteenth century, with the Bible in
our hands—familiar with its precepts, its obligations
and its terrible sanctions. tsitnot a reproach that we
should sit here debating a question of Freedom or
Slavery ? Not of the abolition of slavery .but edits pro
pagation and extension. We have obtainoil, alter
an expensive - war, from tour weaker neighbor, a
fair and fertile portion of her territory. It is free
from near° slavery, and it becomes a desperate
and doubtful struggle,Vhether we can preserve
it flee or not. Is it not a. national shame and re
proach ! So help me God. I would as soon vote for
the revival pi the foreign slave trade as for any law
planting :4ascry upon territories now free.
' There is no force in the argument so often pres
ented that the *tension of Slavery does not add to
!he number of !slaves—that to - plant n in our Terri
tories would be to diffuse, not 'to increase the.
evil. It is a 1,41 r of population that races anti na-:
tions increase ill proportion nrthe means of human
stitisistence—td the extent they occupy of fertile and
productive sod. One square mile will sustain only
half the population of two. - If you double the pro
ductive territory of a State, it is certain that in time
its population will be doubled. As you extend the
tea over e hic-h the slave population are to spread.
jest in that proportion are their numbers sure to
increase, In the old and thickly settled countries .
.ot - the world, population is stationary or on the
decrease, while in new and sparsely populated re
:lions, other circumstances being favorable, it ia ra
pidly increasing. There is no increase of Slaves
in Cara, although it is well known that the foreign
slave trade is carried on to a considerable extent
with that Island. The reason is apparent. There
is nn rcnim for them to spread, and the market is
fully supplied with laborers, Slaves are like any
other stoz);., Of which merchandise is made.—
Widen the' market for their sale, and you stimulate
the pie '.uetiou. lucrease their value, and you pro
long the years Of their bondage. The extension ,of
Slavery, and the increase of slaves, are identical
and inseparable—one and the same thing. It is
the influence and etfect of this policy upon white la
bor of which I especially complain. It gives up to
the Cupidity of the slaveholder, and to the tinproduc
tire tillage of his human cattle that which of right
belongs to free labor, an:l which is necessary for
the support 'and happiness of our own race and
people. k brings dishonor and degradation npOn
the poorarbite man, who is brought in close con
tact with the servile labor of the black. It mars his
manhood. It destroys his self-respect and dignity
of character.- lie feels a sense of humiliation,
when he looks np to the vast distance between
himself and the lordly planter, in the shadow of
whose aristocratic possessions he lives an inferior,
if not a dependant. He livei in the midst of a so
cial system,• made up of lords and vassals; and it
lie cannot rise to the condition of the former, he
must sink to a level with the latter.
This is the policy we are called upon to favor,
anti for the advancement of which an effort is made
to eoutml the action of-the Democratic party. The
rights and interests of free labor arc to be trdd
dim under foot-the grunt mission of man's el
evation abandoned—the march of civilization
tented back—thii hopes of the pan lot and philalr
Ginn-4 disappointed : and all this, to satisfy the
demands of a few 'thousand slaveholdersrwhose
pecuniary interests are promoted by the extension
4 , ,Lavery. The name of Democracy is invoked to
carry forwardaltis work of barbarism 4tu of bond
age— a carne Favred - tn progress and human - ad
vancement. 'Sir. before the time-honored name of
Democracy in thus desecrated, there will 'ho a
and mighty struggle m the hind. The young
and ardent. the noble and '4-If-sacrificing, wilt tight
a tattle against sellishttess, and patronage, and the
power of istrty machinery, that shall shake this Con
le2eritcy from its centre to its circumference—that
shall tear down old organizations, and vets:instruct
parties anew. They will strike for the intergity of
their party. the purity of its principles, and the
honor of its ancient name. We know we are tight
in this contest, and we do not mean to surrender,
so loot; as there is art inch of ground upon which•
ice taut and do battle.
Mr. Chairtnan : It would seem as it a studied
elfint were made, in certain imarten., ,to create
alarm for the t•atety-ttt the 'TlieTnion r.

the history of the wrongs and injuties iidlided up-,
on the Coloaics by the tyranny of Great-Britain.—
It appealed to the impartial judgment of the world
and to the justice of Heaven. What would be the
character of thait declaration, upon which our South

upon which they would ask the judgment of a can

and free men,tospum the indignity. Our !madmen!
to the Union is deep and abiding. We do nyt per

the spectre of Disunion be ledd up before u. .r If
it ever becomes necessary, which God forhid, to
eninemplate it, terror will strike no. deeper to the
Northern than to the Southern heart. Sir, let us
have done with this talk about disunion. This
controversy is nut to be settled by appeals to the
fears of either the North or the South. Reason and
justice mnst decide between us.. The fight must
prevail, and the wrong must give way.
Mr. Chairman: I have spoken with that frank
ness and earnestness that I believe dim to this sub
ject, but with no disposition to impugn the motives
or the patriotism of others, with whom it is my
misfortune to differ. Believing, as I do. that this
question is nue of the first magnitude, I could not
discharge my whole duty and say less. Would
that I cculd have said more. Would that I were
able to present to the country this momentous sub-
ject, in all the length anti breadth and depth of its
bearings upon the happiness of the People and the
well-being of the Republic. Its settlement deter
mines for all - coming time, the character and insti--,
Haloes of this Government. If the friends of Free
.dom are overcome in this contest, it. will be the
last struggle ever made against the advancement of
the Slave Power-41 power which will then over.
shadow the country, and bear down all opposition
to its will. Holding in its iron grasp by far the lar
ger aruf better portion of the soil of the Republic,
the great resource of the tattering man, it a ill tram
ple at pleasure upon the rights n; the manses, and
in the end deprive them of their just influence and
control in the Government. A triumph now, a'.
cures to slavery other and larger reonquests. It will
move on like a resistless 'current, until it shall
spread over the whole continent to the South. This
is a certain as that time and the seasons will roll on.
If the events of the fast few years will not arouse
the free laborers of the North to a sense of their
danger, then indeed, will all the acids of their
friends upon this floor prove fruitless and unavailing.
Give to sla very one half of our recent acquisitions
and it Will have added to its dominion, within the
last three years, a territory laiger than that of the
entire free states of the Union. Extend it to the
Pacific, aad it forthwith takes up its match to the
South. The history of Texas will be the history of
every Mexican province, until that Republic shall
be overuu from her Northeni boundary to the
isthmus of Panama. Deretreminatc and unresisting
population will be exterminated or enslaved
Slavery will riot in the extent of its possessions a nt i
power; and then will glow up at the South the
the mightest Oligarchy that the world ever saw.

SHEILII.4,N'S ALL-HEALILNG BALSAM.
Mrs. Attire, the wife of Wer.M. Attlee, Esq. was giv
en up by Dr. Sewall of Washington, Dr. Roe anti Mc- I
Cleilau of Philadelphia, Ins. Rue and Mon of New
York. Her, friends all thought she must die. She
had every eppearaace of being•in conomnpUssi, and was
so pronounced dry her irhysicianhernian's Balsam
was, given and it cured her.
Mrs. thmibeants, of Bull's Ferry was also cured of
consumption by this Balsam erben all other remedies
failed to give relief—she was reduced toe skeleton. Dr.
A. C. Gamic, Dentist; 281 Brqedwilly, lies witneased
its streets iii illesden! cases where no otter medicine effirt
ded telief—but the Balvarn_oyerated likes charm. Dr.
C. also witnessed its wenderful effimis in end,* Asth
ma, which it never fails of doing. Spitting Blood,
alarming as it may be, is c&ctually cured by this Bel
ram. It heals the ruptured or wounded blood vessels,
and makes the lungs sound again. .
Rev. Henry Jones, 108 Eighth avenue, was cured of
cough and catarrhal affections of 50 yearestanding. The
first dap gave him more relief than aU the other medi
cine be had ever taken,. Dr. L. J. Deals. 19 Delaney
street, gave it to a sister-in-law who was laboring under
consumption, said to another sorely minded with the
asthma. In both cases its effects were immediate, soon
restoring them to comfortable health.
Mrs. Lucretia Wells, 95 Christie at., suffered from
Asthma 42 years. Sherman's Balsam relieved her at
once, and she is comparinivel, well, being enabled 'to
subdue every attack by a timely use of this medicine.
This indeed is the timely remedy for. Coughs, Colds,
Spitting blood, Ildv.r complaints and all affections orate
throat, and even Asthma cud Consumption.

It has been proved that nearly 'every disease to which
the human frame is subject, originates from impurities
of the Bloat or Derangements of the Digestive Organs;
and to secure Health, we must remove,those obstructions
or restore the blood to its natural ,rate. This fact is
universally known ,iiut people have t ruch an aversion
to medicine, that, unless the case is urgent. they prefer •
the diseaSe to the cure, until an impaired Constitution
or a lit of i.ick.ricari rebukes them for the folly of theircon
duet. Still they had saute excuse, for heretofore. med
icine in almost all its forms, was nearly as disgusting
as it was beneficial. Now. however. the evil is most ef
fectually removed; for etitkesice's I:egeiable Purgatire
Pills, being completely enveloped with A coariao OF
ryas writes i.erilit,(which is distinct from the kernel) ,
have no taste of medicine, but are as easily swallowed
as hits of candy: Moreover they Jo not nauseate or
ipe in the slightest degree, which is occasioni9d by the
fact that are compoubdtil on scientific iirincißes, and
operate equally on all the diseased parts of the system,
instead of confining themselves to, and racking any par
ticular tegfan. (which is the great and admitted evil of
every other purgative.) Ilence,they strike at the rout
