cuu.-d ai. it.- and .have almost come to
(he conclusion that samba is culirely
'raised up," that there is nothing left :o
liim but a little wool sticking in
of politicians. , , . .
We believe, with very erccptious, that
tho institution of slavery is an evil, and
tlie pro-slavery arisifcrp.taof the south
were 3o certain ufttut fact, .that they
iiuagiued danger, when thgrc . really was

sign of the great . Republican 1'a'ty at
the outstj to prcs';ribc liiilts for th 3. evil,
ani not to disturb it in the states Trhiri
it czistcd by virtue of their domestic
laws; although by : making gr.rblcd cs
tracU from the Chicago Tlatform of lGO,
some politicians endeavored to conviuco
the people that destruction ami limit".!':"'.,
was the object. f , ... -,. ., ; . " , .
But after the slavehelderj d'd fibp.?
and. alter that rebellion had assumed such
a magnitude as was truly horrible, and it
became manifest that that lcbellion could
not be subdued, without laying '.forcible
hands ou the iustitution of slavcry,"thcn
aud not until then would ,our . n.uch la
mented Chief Magistrate 3Ir. Lincoln
interfere in tlie slavery institution even
then be hesitated, and first issued, a Pro
clarration of. warning on the 23rd of
September l$tJ2T-giving the rebels one
hundred days time fo. return unto their
allegiance to the,,. United .States, and in
default thereof he would, at the cod of
tho time specified, emancipate this slaves.
Yet they, .as .1'haroh .of old ."hardened
thoir hearts"; and, stiffened their necks,
a.ud. pleasing iu . the.. . sight of Jchcvafc, j

TTe will .Colonize them,, we have ; to
decide betTreen the two latter questions
either mlordiuatq et ' equality. ..Elevating
their condition, seems to me to '.be tho
duty pfthe present generation by erecting
schools among them and fit them for so
cial life; but to mak.o. ..tHeii our equal,
by .grfteticjj unto them the rights of suff
rage, I ; tun stct'lly eppesed. They are
not yet lit subjects to have these priy;Icgc3
prantcu them. W-e find a few Infolligent
men among them, it is , true. j. but gener
ally epcafclzg they are an ignorant class
of peoploa They liavo no txoro itloa , of
the workings of our Governmental ma
chinery, than our children, hdve of the
F.oman Inquisition, .itow I believe, that
to endorse them at the present tifcc, with
the right of franchise, would be a danger-
experiment, it would, be detrimental to
to .our. .. (,overniu2nt. An . un
educated and ignorant class ot people can
not vote intelligently it is impossible.;
Here the argument might be. brought up
against me that we have a good many
whites who are uneducated, and still have
the right to vote, which is true; but I
am now epeakiog upon the theory, whioh
I think wi!! be universally acknowledged
as a 'id, that the white!. JVcu without
education are more intelligent -than th.3
Here cvmes ai:thcr r.rgr.nent against
me which seems the most plausible
'They went into the army for os and as
sistcc in maintaining - tin supromaey of
our Constitution and we are ' ungrateful if
io net extend 'unto (hem the rt'chf of

We acknowledge t?.!! that, but artf thry
not sufficiently renutnerated for their ser
vices T"ere they riot led trotl under
the yoke of Bondage and Egytian tor
yitnde into a lacd of Ltbf.rty ? Were
riot the sbickless and fetters broken for
j them, and they can go ' wheresoever they

is a sufficient' renumcration to thetn for
