a single slave breathed the air or was
withitt the limits of our country. But i
Itere they are, to be dealt with as well as
we can,, with a due consideration of all
ciititustatices,atfecting the security, safety.;
:toy', happiness of both races. Every I
Slate lies the supreme, uncontrolled and
exelusire power to decide for itself wheth

its limits, without any exterior intervention
from soy quarter. In States, where the,

case with several, the e- -r - lacks mild noe,

Marra, an einiparison with the whites,
was so inconsiderable that we might safe-

erthti Irani the immediate abolition of elav

of the present day contend. Whether
they have intended or not, it is my calm',
and deliberate belief. that they hare done
inearMilafile mischief even to the very
cause wind' they espoused, to say nothin,'
of die discord which has been
between different parts of the Union. Ac
cording to the system we attempted, near
the close of the last century, all slaves in
being - were to remain such, but, all
who might be born subsequent to a cer
tain 'day, were to become free at the
age'of twenty4ight, and during their ser
vice: Were to be taught to read, write, and
cypher.. Thus. instead of being thrown

It may he argued that, in admitting the
injustice of slavery, I admit the •necessity
of instantaneous reparation of that injustice.
;'Unfortunately, however, it is not always
safe, practicable or possible, in the great
movements of States and public affairs of
nations, to remedy or repair the infliction
of previous injustice. In the inception of
it, we may oppose and denounce it, by pur
most strenuous exertions, but, after its con
summation, there is often no other alterna
alive left us but to deplore its perpetration,
and to acquiesce, as the only alternative, in
its existence. as a less evil than the frightful
i consequences which might ensue from the
, vain endeavor to repair it. Slavery is one
!of those unfortunate instances. The evil
' of it was inflicted upon us, by the parent
country of Great Britain against all the
' entreaties and remonstrances of the colo
nies. And here it is amongst and amidst
, us, and we must dispose of it as best we
-can ender the circumstances which intr.
round us. 'lt contmactl, by the imports

country is entirely rid of thp evil. And in
the mealtime, modevation, prudence and
discretion among ourselves, and the bless-
One of Providence may be all necessary to
I accomplish our ulditate deliverance-treat
1 it. Examplei of similar infliction of irre
parable national evil and injustice might be
multiplied to so indefinite extent. The
` case of the annexation of Texas to the U.
&massif a- recent sod anobvioneows-wliialt,-
if it were wrong, cannot now be repaired.
, Texas is now an integral part dour Union,
1 with its own veluntay consent. Many
of us opposed the annexation with honest
zeal and most earnest exertions. But who
. would now think of perpetrating the fully
of casting Texas out of the confederacy
and throwing her back upon her indepen•
deuce. or into the arms of Mexico ! Who
,! would now seek to divorce her from this
I Union ! The Creeks and the Qherokee
i Indians were, by the most exceptionable
1 means, driven from their 'country., ,and
transported beyond the Mississippi river.-
;'''heir lands h ave - been fairly purchased
I and occupied by inhabitants of Georgia,
1 Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.--
Who could now conceive the flagrant in
justice of expelling those inhabitants and
restoring the Indian country to the Chero
kees and Creeks. under color of repairing
original injustice ! :During the waruf
revolution, millions of paper money were
issued by our ancestors as the only curren
cy with which they could achieve our lib
erties and independence. Thousands and
hundreds of thousands of families were
stripped of their homes' and their all and
brought to ruin, by giving credit and eon

If I have been at all inieresafall in the ex

Ist. That the present war *as brought
about by the annexation of Texas and the
subsequeut order of the President, without
the previous conseat and authority of Cod
2d. That the President being unenlight
ened and uninstructed, by any public de
claration of Congress. as to the objects for
,chirp it ought to be prosecuted. in die con
duct of it is. necessarily. left to his ow n
see of what the national intermit and
honor mac require.

objects. is confided to the discretion and
judgement of Congress.
4th. That it is, therefiwe.-the. sight-of-
Congress. at the commencement or during
the progress of any war. to declare for
a hat objects and purposes the war ought
to be waged and prosecuted.

Congress to announce to the nation for
what Objects the.present war shall be lon
ger continued; that it is the duty of the
President. in the exercise of all his official
functions:Su conform to and carry nut this
declared will of Congress, hv the exer

with which hew clothed ; and that. if lie I
fail or refuse to do so. it becomes the im

Let congteas announce to the nation
the ellees fix which this war shall be

public inequietede will no longer remain.
If it is to be a war of conquest of all, or
any part of Mexico. let the people know it
and they will be no longer agitated by a
dark and uncertain future. But, although I
. might have forborne to express any opinion
whatever as to purposes and objects for
' which the war should be continued, I have
not thought proper to conceal my opinions,

TO PRACTISING PHYSICIANS.—Let me
impress upon conscientious physicians the impor
tance of a trial of the Brandretlis Pills. Let them
make only a Mr trial of them, and they will con•
cede the medicine - is the best esscuant of the bow
els hitherto discovered. The ingredients are all
prepared 'sprawly for the manufacture of the
Brandreth Pills, and it is impossible to obtain a
purgative of the same properties except from Dr.
11. Brandreth. Let physicians and the world at
large bear in mind that the Brandreth Pills may
he taken, if necessary, for any length of time dai
ly. not only without injury, hut with a certainty
of beneficial results.
This universal medicine mildly , but Surely
cleanses the whole extent of the alhoentary canal.
it then gives increased power to the enctdation of
she blood, by which it deposits any impurities it
may contain in the bowels, which organ expels
them from the body.
This action may continuo for days, weeks, or
inbtftha as the mildness or urgency 'of the disease
may demand. or - until the entire - body has been e•
scooted and re•made from the food consumed.
How important is it that persons of feeble frame,
.impure constitutions, should, without delay,
commence with this pure and wholesome medicine.
No time ought to be loin by using Lozenges or
Candies as medicines, which are better adapted
for the destruction of the teeth, than for the cure of
any disease. Experience has sufficiently tested
that these remedies contain invariably calomel and
other active a-honked agents that have a very de
structive effect, of which there Ire too many indi
vidually convinced to their cost.
The testimony• in favor of the Brandreth pills,
and the numb,* who are daily raised from a bed
..of misery by their use, render it imperative that all
-who me sulferino from sickness should give them
a trial. To .ow g a tv—
