Confiscation and Emancipation.
In'the Cuitel States Senate, March 3d,
McDougal, Anti-Lecompton, of Cal, i
proceeded to speak at length on the Coo-,
tiscatiOn till. Ile referred to the condit
ion of tbe 'country, and claimed tlfat tack ,
sired the return of peace ; but peace could
not be obtained by subjugation, or by the
principles set forth •in this bill. Such
princiOes.wouhr only perpetuate, the re
lentless war, which must result in extirpa
tion before N\:6 "could hare peace. Ile re
• .
Stirred, to the counsels -of clemency to
enemies given by ancient' Grecian and
Homan statesnietyand also _quoted from
mO'dern authors .Aon internattonal law—
Vane!, Groans 'and others, in favor 'of
eretneneFand against the le-sanction of
.private property. -
He claimed that the policy of this Gov
eramene, as well as the coonsels of the
grcatest and best men of the country I
were opposed - to confiseatitm. He re-1
ferret! to the inaugural of s tile President,
an! the instructions of the Secretary of
.State as in favor- of elemenev.. He said
this bill was a Violation of all international
- law,'ana no such act was ever passed by
a civilizednation. The general usage of
seivilizod war was-not to touch private pro
pert* on land, and Such-wits the usage of
this Government in the Mexican wad., and
be contended that the people of this coun
y-hal as much right to the privileges 101
owed in war as those of any country.
He contended farther, that the_bill
was unconstitutional, as it. was a bill of i
attainder, and suck a hill Of attainder as
is without a parallel in . history--.operating
on a whole class of people and . not against .
a few individualt . :, as easel of attainder in
. England act: It was a bill to send agents
of the Government out to seize the proper
ty of a million of people without proceed
ing before any Court. Nothing was so
disastrous to a country as to organize an
-army of informers to 'scour the country
and pry omppropert yto seize on. Such
a policy as. this would never cure the
evil, • It would only make a large body - cf ,
Altsperate men.
- t Evesy true man, who had ever tasted .
freedom, would rather die than submit to
such degradation. lie could not contem
plate the result, of freeing the vast popula
tion of slaves at the South, and turning, I
them loose Oti . the country, without fear.
\V it honf concluding, Mr. McDougal I
olive way for thC.purpose of allowing the i
Senate to-go into Exentive Session.
Mr. McDougall, resumed his speeeb.l
Ile quoted from Justice Story and other
writers as opposod to any confiscation of
private property, Ile contended that the
- plovisiozi in relation to freeing the slaves
was unconstitutional, and quoted the de
ela-ratiOns of the President and Secretary.
of State as showing an entirely different
• policy of the Government. He declared
that the colonization scheme was wild and
impractieable, and contended that Magna- .
tdmay was the greatest virtue of victors,
and we should go tbrward with the Con
stitution as our common cause, and with
tie olive branch bf peace in our hand.
Mr. Cowan, Republican,' of Pa., said he
agreed with the s Senator from California.
•" He thought This wa.: one of the most itu
portaht measures that was ever brought
. before Congress, and on which the fate of
the pepublie might depend. -The bill
proposes to_go bas.-k to the doctrine of the
feudal ages, and introduce feud's which
centuries cannot quiet. He contended
that the passage of vital a bill would make
the whole Southern people our enemies
and the S'eheme of colonization tentirely
Ana further, the Lill is directly in con
. •.flirt. with the Constitution, for the preser
vation of which alone the war is waged.
Besides, it is Unnecessary, impolitic, and
totally uselcs=. It was, unconstitutional,
. . because the Constitution provides that no
of shall be passed, and no
person, punished for crime without regular
proceedings in the courts. It is m fact a
bill , of attainder, and Congress hasno
poiver to pass it.- The bill makes no dis
unction between thosi'i.foreed into the re
. •bellien and it willing.• He protested
:against that seFtion of the bill freeing the.,
slaves as an' entire departure from the
prineiples.ot the Constitution - and espeei
. ally impolitic at this time. Because we
-are at war, it. would not make a law
which was unconstitutional before any
better now. He ltopad some other. and 1
better way would be taken to punish those I
concerned in the rebellion when shall have
~been suppressed, and a way taken' which
avail not furnish cause for future revolt.
7'ne would punish effectlially those who
-ought to be punished, - and eorgive thor
- • oughly.tbose to be`forg,iveu.
. lie hoped the bill would not pass, hut
that Congress would attend to the meas
_ ures hei . sessary to secure , successin the
grek, struggle itt which we are engaged.
