Hon. MONTGOMERY BLAIR,
On the subject of Slavery, its Boils and Emancipa
tion, to the meeting held at the Cooper Institute,
New York, March 6, 1862. .
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,
March, 2, 1862.
GENTLEMEN : I have the honor to acknow
ledge your favor of yesterday, inviting me to
attend a meeting of the citizens of New York,
at the Cooper Institute, on the 6th instant,
and requesting my views on the subject of the.
call. I shall not t.e able to attend the meeting,
nor have I the leisure to write out my views
upon the subject with the care demanded by
the nature of it, but I will offer some thoughts
for your consideration.
I do not concur in the proposition that cer
tain States have been "recently overturned
and wholly subverted as members of the Fed
eral Union," upon which the call is based.—
This is, in substance what the confederates
themselves claim ; and the fact that secession
is maintained by the authors of this call, for a
different purpose, does not make it more con
stitutional, or prevent them from being actual
alders and abettors of the confederates.
No one who knows my political career will
suspect that my condemnation' of this doctrine
is influenced by any indisposition to put an end
to slavery. I have left no opportunity un
improved to strike at it, and have never been
restrained from doing so by personal considera
tions. But I have never believed that the
abolition of slavery, or any other great reform,
could or ought to be effected except by lawful
and constitutional modes. The people have
never sanctioned, and never will sanction, any
other • and the friends of a cause will especially
avoid ;It questionable grounds when, as in the present
instance, nothing else can long postpone their suc
There are two distinct interests in slavery,
the political and property interests, held by
distinct classes. The rebellion originated with
the, political class. The property class, which
generally belonged to the Whig organization,
had lost no property in the region where the
rebellion broke out, and were prosperous. It
was the Democratic organization, which did
not represent the slaveholders as a class, which
hatched the rebellion. Their defeat in the late
political struggle, and in the present rebellion,
extinguishes at once and forever the political
interest of slavery. The election of Mr. Lin
coln put an end to the hopes of Jeff. Davis,
Wise, did omne genus, for the Presidency of the
Union, and hence the rebellion. It extinguished
slavery as a power to control the Federal Gov
ernment, and it was the capacity of slavery to
subserve this purpose alone which has given it
vitality, for morally and economically it is
indefensible. With the extinction of its
political power, there is no motive to induce
any politician to uptold it. No man ever
defended such an institution except for pay,
and nothing short of the power of the Gov
ernment could provide sufficient gratification to
ambition to pay for such service; and therefore
Mr. Toombs said, with perfect truth, that the
institution could only be maintained in the
Union by the possession of the government.
That has been wrested from it, and the pay is
on the bide of justice and truth. Can any man
who respects popular intelligence think it ne
cessary, with such advantages on the side of
justice and truth, to violate the great charter
of our liberties to insure their triumph? Such
an act, in my judgment, so far from advancing
the cause in whose nave it is performed, would
surely be disastrous, and result in bringing our
opponents into power in the name of the Con
It is not merely a question of constitutional
law or slavery with which we have to deal in ' 'se
curing permanent peace." The problem before
us is the practical one of "dealing with the
relations of masses of two different races in the
same community. The calamities now upon
. have been brought about, as I have already
said, not by the grievances of the class claiming
property in slaves, but by the jealousy of caste
awakened by the secessionists in the non
In considering the means of securing the
peace of the country hereafter, it is, therefore,
this jealousy of race which is chiefly to be
considered. Emancipation alone would not
remove it. It was by proclaiming to the
laboring whites, who fill the armies of rebellion,
that the election of Mr. Lincoln involved
emancipation, equality of negroes with them,
and consequently amalgamation, that their
jealousy was stimulated to the fighting point.
Nor is this jealousy the fruit of mere ignorance
and bad passion, as some suppose, or confined
to the white people of the Sciuth. On the
contrary, it belongs to all races, and, like- all
popular instincts, proceeds from the highest
wisdom. It is, in fact, the instinct of self
preservation which revolts at hybridism.
Nor does this instinct militate against the
natural law, that all men are created equal, if
another law of nature, equally obvious, is
obeyed. We have but to restore the subject
race to the same, or to a region similar to that
from which it was brought by violence, to
make it operative; and such a separation of
races was the codition which the immortal
author of the Declaration himself declared to
be indispensable to give it practical effect. A
theerist, not living in a community where
diverse races are brought in contact in masses
may stifle the voice of nature in his own bosom,
and from a determination to live up to a mis
taken view of the doctrine, go so far to extend
social intercourse to individuals of the subject
race. But few even of such persons would
pursue their theories so far as amalgamation
and other legitimate consequences of their
logic. Indeed, for the most part, such persons
in our country, like the leading spirits in Exeter
Hall, are so far removed, by their circum
stances, from any practical equality with work
ing people of any race that they have little
sympathy for them, and nothing to apprehend
tor themselves from the theory of equality.
Not so with the white working man in a com
munity where there are many negroes. In such
circumstances, the distinction of caste is the
only protection of the race from hybridism and
That this jealousy of caste is the instinct of
the highest wisdom, and is fraught with the
greatest good: is abundantly attested by its
effects on our own race, in which it is stronger
than in any other. We conquer and hold our
conquests by it.
The difficult question with which we have to
deal is, then, the question of race, and I do
not think it is disposed of, or that our difficul
ties will be lessened by emancipation by Con
gress, even if such an act was constitutional.
It would certainly add to the exasperation of
the non-slaveholdiog whites of the south, and
might unite them against the government, and,
if so, they would be unconquerable. As mat
ters stand, we can put down the rebellion,
because the people of the natural strongholds
of the southern country are with us. It is
chiefly in the low lands accessible from the
ocean and navigable rivers and bays that
treason is rampant. The mountain fastnesses,
where alone a guerrilla war can be sustained,
are now held by Union men, and they are more
numerous and more robust, intelligent, and in
dependent than the rebels. It is chiefly the
more degraded class of non•slaveholders, who
live in the midst of slavery, who are now
engaged against the government. But the
non-slaveholders of the mountain and high
land regions, while for the Union, are not free
from the jealousy of caste, and the policy I
object to would, if adopted, I apprehend, array
them against us. Nor would we succeed in our
object if they were finally subdued and ex
terminated, if we left the negroes on the
soil; for other whites would take the country,
and hold it against the negroes, and reduce
them again to slavery, or exterminate them.
I am morally certain, indeed, that to free the
slaves of the south, without removing them,
would result in the massacre of them. A gen
eral massacre was on the eve of taking place
in the State of Tennessee, in 1856, upon a
rising of same of them on the Cumberland;
and I have been assured by Hon. Andrew John
son, who was then Governor of the State, that
nothing but his prompt calling out of the mi
litia prevented it.
But this antagonism of race, which has led
to our present calamities, and might lead to
yet greater, if it continues to be ignored, will
deliver us from slavery in the easiest, speediest,
and best manner, if we recognize it as it is—
the real cause of trouble and invincible, and
deal with it rationally.
We have but to propose to let the white race
have the laude intended for them by the Creator
to turn the tierce spirit aroused by the seces
sionists to destroy the Union to the support of
it, and at the same time to break up the slave
system by which the most fertile lands of the
temperate zone are monopolized and wasted.
That is the result which the logic of the census
shows( is being worked out, and which no polit
ical management can prevent being worked out.
The essence of the contest is, whether the white
race shall have these lands, or whether they
shall be held by the blace race, in the name of
a few whites. The blacks could never hold
them as theirown,
for we have seen how quickly
that race has disappeared when emancipated.
Experience proves, what might have been in
ferred from their history, that it has not main
tained and cannot maintain itself in the tem
perate zone, in contact and in competition witn
the race to which that region belongs. It is
only when dependent that it can exist there.
Bat this servile relation is mischievous, and
the community so constituted does not flourish
and keep pace with the spirit of the ags. It
has scarcely the claim to the immense area of
land it occupies which the aborigines had ; for
though the Indians occupied larger apace, with
fewer inhabitants, they did not waste the land
as the slave system does: No political man
agement or sentimentalism can prevent the
natural resolution of such a system, in the end,
any more than such means could avail to pre
serve the Indian possession and dominion.
The rebellion, like, the Indian outbreaks, is
but a vain attempt to stem the tide of civiliza
tion and progress. The treachery, falsehood,
and cruelty perpetrated to maintain negro pos
session, scarcely less than that of the savaaes,
marks the real nature of the contest. Never
theless, I believe it might have been averted if
we had adopted Mr. Jefferson's counsels, and
made provision for the seperation of the races,
providing suitable homes for the blacks, salve
have fur the Indians. it is essential still, in
order to abridge the conflict of arms, and to
fraternize the people when that is past, to
follow Mr. Jefferson's advice.
This most benevolent and sagicious states
man predicted all the evils which it has been
our misfortune to witness, unless we should
avert them by this, the only means which,
after the most anxious thought, he could sug
gest. No statesman of our, day has given the
subject so much thought as he did, or possess the
knowledge or ability to treat it so wisely. Let us
then, listen to his counsels. By doing so we
shallestablish a fraternity among the working
Men of the waite race throughout the Union,
which has never existed, and give real freedom
to the black race, which cannot otherwise exist.
Nor is it necessary to the restoration of har
mony and prosperity to the Union that this
policy should be actually and completely put in
force. It is only necessary that it should be
adopted by the Government, and that it be
made `known to the people that it is adopted,
to extinguish hostility in the hearts of the
masses et the South toward the people of the
North, and secure their co-operation in putting
an end toslavery. No greater mistake was ever
made than in supposing that the masses of the
people of the south favor slavery. I have
already stated that they did not take up arms
to defend it, and explained the real motives of
their action. The fact that they oppose eman
cipation in their midst is the only foundation
for the contrary opinion. But the masses of
the North are equally opposed to it, if the four
millions of slaves are to be transported to
their midst The prohibitory laws against
their coming, existing in all the States subject
to invasion, proves this. On the other hand,
the intense hostility which is universally
known to be telt by the non-slaveholders of
the South toward all negroes expresses their
real hostility to slavery, and it is the natural
form of expression under the circumstances.
It needs, theretore, but the assurance which
would be given by providing ; homes for the
blacks elsewhere, that they are to be regarded
as sojourners when emancipated, as, in point
of fact, they are.and ever will be, to insure the
co-operation of the non-slaveholders in their
emancipation: Nor would they , require imme
diate, universal, or involuntary transportation,
or that any injustice whatever be done to the
blacks. The more enterprising would soon
emigrate, and multitudes of less energy would,
soon follow, if such success attended the pion
eers as the care with which ,the Government
should foster so important an object would
doubtless insure; and with such facilities, it
would require but few generations to put the
temperate regions of America in the exclusive
occupation of the white race, and remove the
only obstacle to a perpetual Union of the
States. With great respect, I am,

THonsA.Nns of persons have read with
astonishment the accounts that historians
give of the conduct of a large number of
women in Paris during the reign of,terror
throughout France. The women are said
to have been fiercer and more blood•
thirsty than even the fiercest and most
bloodthirsty of the men. The she-devils
had more of the spirit of hell than the
he-devils. - They were loudest in their
clamors for "blood 1" "blood!" "blood 1"
and every morning they thronged around
the guillotine, some of their' taking their
sewing or their knitting with them and
sitting all day to behold the heads of
the victims rolling into the executioner's
Many of our people have supposed that
accounts given of these things mast surely
be fictions or exaggerations. They have felt
themselves unable conceive that woman's
nature could become a thing so utterly
revolting. But, if they will look and listen
in this region at the present time, they will
find that they have no further reason for
incredulity or skepticism. The bitter and
ferocious spirit of thousands of rebel
women in Kentucky, Tennessee, and other
States, is scarcely, if at all, surpassed by
that of the female monsters that shrieked
and howled for victims in the French revo
TRAINING A Gux.—The operation of firing
on board one of the Western gunboats is
interesting. Like all men-of-war, the crew,
240 in ail, are divided into watches of four
hours each, with a fresh lot for every watch.
The guns on board are numbered, and
each gunner belongs to a certain number
and fills a certain function. There is one
who brings the powder from the maga
zine—the powder-monkey, as he is stylad;
another the shot; the second to hand them
to the person whose duty it is to charge
the gun; another to sight:' still another to
ram, to sponge, to depress or elevate, and
an officer to direct the firing. The gun
being loaded, at the given signal it is fired,
and the gun bounds back on its carriage
several feet. The'tween decks is charged
with smoke, almost to suffocation, and the
process is renewed. Everything moves
like clockwork, the old rule being rigidly
followed: "A place for everything, and
everything in its place." Matters are ar
ranged with perfect neatness and order on
board, and what is cheering to relate, there
is no extraordinary bustle, but in the beat
of action every one is quietly attentive to
SINGULAR CASE OF POLYGAMY.—The Kill
date (Mich.) Democrat says: "A young
man, aged about twenty-tour years, mar
ried a Miss Smith. of Coldwater, in this
State, in November, 1860, and in a few
months after he married a young lady in
Kalamazoo. During this fall he married
another young lady in Constantine, St.
Joseph county, and in four months there
after he was again wedded to a Miss Rowley
of Goshen, Ind., the daughter of a wealthy
citizen, whom he induced to elope with
him. The father becoming reconciled,
sent for them, and a few days ago became
aware of the above facts, when he caused
his villainous son-in-law to be lodged in
jail. The last named young lady is repre
sented as being very handsome and well
educated, with an unblemished character."
A REBEL paper is in favor of adopting a
new Rebel flag, since the present one has
been whipped so often, having a white field
with a black bar sinister, as a symbol of the-
African slave trade. That would be very
appropriate, as a bar sinister, which signi
fies illegitimacy, would be a fit emblem of
that bastard Confederacy; which is a "birth
strangled babe, ditch-delivered by a drab"
And may the lightnings of Heaven shiver

Ir is astonishing how "toddy" promotes in
dependence. A. well-known "brick," lying, a
