Immense Concourse to Hear
Him Speak.
Mr. Douglas arrived in our city about mid
night on Monday night. lie was met by a
few of his personal friends, and a commit
tee of the Douglas Club, who escorted him
to his lodgings at the St. Charles Hotel.
On Tuesday morning he was fully occupied
in receiving the calls of the citizens of
Pittsburgh, for without respect of party,
they flocked in hundreds to see the man
who had done so much for the rights of the
people. Ife received all with warm and
manly cordiality, taking them by the hand
and eolivering freely.
It is a glorious thing to be popular - in a
good cause. The brilliant statesman stood
among his fellow citizens, of all hues and
shades of politics, and all welcomed him
with reverence, respect, and affection. There
was no thought of party lines nor of politi
cal dissensions in his presence. Ills bearing,
his talent, and the remembrance of what lie
had done for the country, inspired all about
him with admiration and enthusiasism.
Those who hold the offices of the present
administration in our county, laid aside all
thought of political differences, and wel
comed the distinguished stranger to our city
as heartily as those who claimed to be his
warmest friends. The reception of the
hitesman from Illinois reminded us forci
bly of that of the great son of Kentucky,
alas! now dead—at the Monongahela House.
some years since. Many, who then were
the most enthusiastic admirers of Henry
Chi), were yesterday at the St. Charles,
equally anxious to shake the hand of a man
worthy in all respects to take his place as a
National Counsellor—the hand of Stephen
A. Douglas.

J. M. Cutts, his father-in-law. and Mr..l. R.
Sheridan, his private Secretary. Ile look
the picture of robust health, and his eagle
eye betokene,l a mind as powerful and active
as his body.
After dinner he W :LS conducted to a car

accomyanying them. The were driven to
the beautiful suburb of t lakland, then
visited the Allegheny Cemetery * and re
turned to the city at about four o'clock.
It had been announced in the daily pa
pers that Judge I )ouglas would atidre, , ,
the people from the balcony of his ho
tel. Long before dark the street ? in
front of the St. Charles Hotel began 011
up with persons wishing to secure the'ilfrese 7
favorable position to hear him, and within
an hour the vicinity of Wood and Third
streets was a dense mass of people, number
ing at least five or six thousand. The win
dows of the upper stories of the warehouses
opposite wslire also croweded with spectators,
among whom were several

maithed down, and took up a station in
front of the St. Charles, where they played
one or two favorite airs. As they concluded,
loud calls were heard for ) the distinguished
Senator. He made his appearanceon the
balcony, along with a committee of the
Douglas Club, and was received with cheers
almost deafening.
Mr. Jacob M'Collister, President of the
Douglas Club, introduced the "Little Giant"
to the assembled multitude, in a few brief,
but appropriate remarks,and the iehtleman
stepped forward, and, for an hour, poured
forth a flood of eloquence, which enchained
tho living mass before him as with a magi
cian's power. It is impossible for us to rep
resent the effects of his eloquence. Ills
ne personal appearance, his magnific,ent
voice, his ready command of language, his
astonishing memory, and perfect prepara
tion to reply to every question which was
addressed to him, were astonishing.
It is not enough to say that he has made
a most favorable impression upon the people
here—all who saw him and heard him speak
were delighted, carried away, enchanted, as
the silver.tones of his voice, and his con
vincing eloquence, swelled their souls and
enlarged their manhood. It is good to be
a great manil great to h e a good man, in
the eyes of crateful people.
We publish to-day a full report of Mr.
Douglas' speech.
With his friends,he left the city last night
at midnight, for Columbus, where ho will ad
dressthe people of I >hie at 2 o'clock, to-day.
Next Tuesday our County Fair will 'com
mence, and every preparation has been made
for a good exhibition. Our farmers and our
mechanics will have specimens of the products
of their several avocations on exhibition, in
abundance. There will be a large visitation to
Our city and our merchants and business men
may look out for a brisk week's business. The
sooner they commence advertising their stock
in the newspapers, the more sales - they may
calculate upon making. Strangers always look
to the newspapers for information where to
purchase such articles as they may desire.
THE Dispatch announces that Captain Sir
Edward W. H. Schenhiy, ex-member of Par
liament for the Borough of Dartmouth, Eng
land, has returned to the 'United States. Per
haps he may intend to ruirfect his citizenship,
and offer himself for office in this cloulitry..—
His English style of electioneering Will be an
expensive operation in this country. If 223
votes cost $15,000, what will 3.5,01)0 cost?

-110:N• S. A. DOUGLAS,
SEPT. (;
citizens of Pittsburgh, SOtember Oth.
. Irv : another article, we .hale spoken of Mr.
Douglas' enthusiastic reception by the citizens
of Pittsburgh and Allegheny county. The
following is a correct report of his eloquent
remarks to them from the balcony of the St.
Charles Hotel.
He was introduced to the assembled thousands
by Jacob M'Collister, Esq., President or thy•
Douglas Club •of Allegheriy County. Mr.
M . Cpllister said :
F4.ientts; and Feilow citizens: As President
of thoAlitlieny City Douglas Club, the
pleasing dtitimposed upon me of introdu-
SiVMiSPilJAdSeDouglas,the United Buttes
SenitiOr from Illinois'.
Amid •loud-chenrs from the crowd, Judge
Douglas stepped forwird and said :
Fellow-ritize-ns: This is an unexpected specta
cle tome to-night; when I left Washington to
make a brief trip to my own State, it was not
my purpose to have stopped within the limits
of Pennsylvania; but have been so kindly
received wherever I rave been, that I do not
feel at liberty to refrain expre sing ti few views
to you to-night up - on the queStions which win
to agitate the public mind.
To be thus re, dived by such a large audi
ence, in a city where 1 am an entire stranger,
is to me exceedingly gratifying ; to be thus re
ceived by Pennsylvanians, natives of that great
State which is known as the Keystone of the
great federal arch is sufficient to gratify the
pride of any public man. Your State has been
properly called the Keystone; she occupies that
central'pbsititin in the Repnblic which enables
her to sympathize with all the other States, in
every section of the Fronting in the
East upon;the•waters of the Delaware•and the
Atlantic; in the West upon' the great line of
lakes, with a great city at the heatlef the Ohio,
I she trades with the North and the South, the
East and- the West, and has:vital interests con
nected with every State in the Union. Penn
sylvania is 'ssentially a Union State; she is
the heart of this great confederacy, and has all
the elements of' an ompird within her own
limits. Excelled by few in her agricultere, by
few in her commercial reeources: unrivalled
in her manufactures, and all those elements
which fill up great manufacturing cities, she
has an interest in the welfare Knit prosperity of
every portion of the federaljl - Ilion. You want
the whole nation as a markdt for your produce:
you trade with every State and every Terri
tory, and you, therefore hate an interest in the
preservation of those principles which will
maintain peace and concord throughout the
confederacy. Pennsylvania has always stood
a barrier against that tide of fanaticism, which,
raised in one section of the Union, has threat
ened to sweep over the other section. Penn
sylvania has never yielded either to Northern
or Southern fanaticism. [Great applause.
I trust that Pennsylvania will continue to
maintain that proud position which has thus
far marked her entire history. Pennsylvania
has never sympathized with that system of
polities which rallies sectional parties, and
arouses the North against the South. the S,, f th
against the North. and places them in the posi
tiun of two hostile seetiqm , . Why should
Pennsylvania sympathize with such an organi
zation of political parties Why should shy•
sympathize with that sentiment which hold
that there is an irrepressible conflict between
the labor of the North and the labor of the
South—between the inititutioni of the North
and the institutions of the South, and which
would make the two great sections enemies t
each other '!
Pennsylvania is in favor of the I - nion. and
I triist ;be will manife,t tif r attachment t, , it
by maintllning those great principle upon
which it was founded by Our lather,. In the
days of the Itecohtlon thorn was no
graphical parties as we now find. In the camp
of Washington Northern and Southern mon
were found fighting side by side, in a common
cause, and pouring out their blood in corium. f I
streams for the benefit of a common country
Why then should que,tions be raked at this
time calculated to alienatafthe alLa•tions of the
people of one section from the it of another.
'Recently there has been an organization in this
country, bused upon a geographical lin , . rally
ing every man north of that line or atteruptini.
to rally every one in hostility to the States and
people and aomeatic institutions oath of lint

that the States must therefore be all free or, all
slave" If that ground had been taken when
the eonstitution was !nada, do you think that
slavery would - have been prohibited in all the
States Would the one free State have out
voted the twelve sluveholdilig Stfitei and abol
ished slavery throughout the land". On the
contrary, if the doctrine had then prevailed
that the domestic institution, of the entire
Union roust be uniform, would not the slave
holding States have out voted the one Inc
State and have established slavery by consti
tutional provision on every inch of American
soil ?
This doctrine of uniformity which is now
preached by the ttepublican party, if proclaim
ed at that day, would have fitsteocd slavery on
every State in the Ameritan confederacy : —
But at that day, the framers of the Constitution
were true to those greet principles of self-gov
ernment, upon which the Union was founded.
They had just emerged froin the revolution—
that revolution \which had its origin in the
right of each eolo‘y and each province to gov
ern itself with respect to its local and domestic
concerns. Whoever will take the pains to read
the history of the American colonies, will find
that the first 'Cause of quarrel between those col
onies and the Brit, h floveriiment, arose on the
slavery questiOn.
As early as 1699 Virginia ben-wine alarmed
lest she might have more slaves within her
limits than would be safe for the white settlers,
in view of the vast number of hostile Indians
who surrounded them'. She passed a law im
posing a penalty on all slaves brought subse
quently into the colony of Virginia, but im
mediately the British merchants engaged in
the African slave trade, petitioned the crown
to annul that act of Virginia against slavery,
on the ground that the colony wits the common
property of tho empire, and that all British
stebjects had a right to move into it,carry their
property with it, and hold i# in defiance of the
local law. The king grahted the prayer of
the:petitioners, and annulled the law of Vir
ginia against slavery. Virginia passed soother
and another, and continued until she enacted
thirty-one statutes against 'that trade, prior to
the revolution. Thus, you observe that the
first great point of controversy between the
colonies on the one hand and the British gov
ernment on the other, involved the right of
each colony to control the slavery question to
suit itself. Every one of the thirteen colonies
did control that question prior to the revolu
tion. Sonic encouraged slavery—others ex
cludod it—but all controlled it to suit them
selves, and maintained that it was their inhe
rent right to do so. Hence, when the colonies
became independent States, they founded the

I was about saying that the federal govern
ment and the State germ noicat of our polit
ical system are founded upon that great prin
ciple. The framers of the Constitution well
understood, at that day. Ilea in a republic as
extensive as ours, with mach n t ztriety of cli '
mate, soil, productions anti interests, there
must be a corresponding variety in the local
and domestic institutions- of the different local
ities. They know the laws and institutions
well adapted to the granite hills of New }lamp
shim were not suited to the tobacco plantations
of Virginia. They knew that the institutions
which were well suited to the mineral re
gions of Pennsylvania were illy adapted to
the rice plantations of South Carolina.—
They knew that each locality, having dis
tinct and separate interests, required distinct
and different laws, adapted to the'wards of its
own locality. For that reason it was provided
that each State should hate a Legislature of its
own, and through that Legislttture should have
the exclusive power to adoptipst such Ideal in

of the federal g,overnment to interfere with the
local and domestic institutions or any Terri
tory or State, you can never hate tie and
harmony del ween the different sections of the
Union. Wheiwver you reeogni4e the right el
ono party to intervene in favor of its section,
the opposita party will claim the right to in
terveno In fn von of its section also. Hence
you see that while there is One party claiming
for Congress the right to interfere Will prohibit
slavery everywhere in the Territories of the
United States, on the otbcr hand there are a
few own in the South, narticulaily in the Op
position party in lientneky and the rem
nant of that party in the other States,
who claim that it is the duty of Congress
to intervene and protect slavery in the
Territories, where the people do not Ayala,
it, and will not protect it themselves.—
Ws have a case now before us, demanding
Congressional intervention, which will test that
principle. I allude to New Moxico and Kan
sas. For several years after New Mexico was
organized as a Territory, she refused and failed
to prowl. slave property within her limits, but
in the year I arib her legislature passed` a law
establishing a slave code and protecting slavery
as one of her domestic institutions. A few
months previous to that act. the legislature of
Kansas, which formerly protected slavery, re
pealed the slave code of Kansas and annulled
all laws and institutions protecting slave prop
erty and all penalties for the violation of the
rights of slavery, and withdrawing from the
courts all jurisdiction over the subject. 2 Thus
you find in Kansas the Territorial Legislature
by a system of unfriendly legislation has exclu
ded slavery from that Territory, while in New
Mexico the Territorial Legislature, by a system
of friendly legislation has established and Ninect
ml it in that Territory. Ni ow we are told by the
Republican party, in the resolution adopted at
their National Convention, held in Philadel
phia, in 1556. that Congress has the power, and
that it is its duty to prohibit slavery in all the
Territories. According to the platform df that
party, the Republicans stand pledged at the
next session of Congress to bring in a law re
pealing the slave code of New Mexice,,and
prohibiting shivery in that Territory, find' ac
cording to the principles of the Southern inter
ventionists, they stand pledged to bring in a
law enacting a slave cede. for Kansas, and pro
tecting slave property there against the wishes
of the people. Thus you will find the interven
tionists of the North and the interventionists
of the South pledged to conic forward at the
next meeting of Congress, and re-open agita
tion, and try to settle it by congressional en
actment. Now what 01 he the pi.sition
of the Democratic party when these Mies-
Sons are presented ? I will tell you where the
friends of popular sovereignty stand, and I will
tell you where the ndviicates of the Cincinnati
platform are compelled to stand—that ik l to re
sist any attempt on the part of Congress to in
terfere with slavery either in New Mex ico or
Kansas. If the people of New Mexicoldesire
-Avery and a slave code, they have a right to
it. It is their business, not yours. It does not
interfere with your rights, and you have noth
ing to say about it, if, on the other hand, the
people of Kansas do not want shivery, and are
opposed to a slave code, they have a right to
pass just such local laws as they see broiler,
subject only to the Constitution of the United
States ; and if any man feels aggrieved4by, the
local legislation of the Territory, all he has to
4o is to appeal to the Court and obtain a de
cision, and then abide the result of that de

by the side of Clay, Webster, Cass and the lead
ers of the two great p•irties when we adopted
the compromise measures of that year.
A IMec—W hat about the Fugitive Slave
3lr. Doug will answer that gentleman
now. Br the Constitution of the United States
it is provided • that a fugitive•slavo,-escaping
from its owner shall be delivered up: [cries of
good ;"] that Constitution is the supreme law
of the land, and I am bound by my oath to
support it. So help 'me G0d,.1 will maintain
it as long as I have life and strength, whether
it be popular North or South. [lmmense ap
plause. • I hold that every citizen is bound by
the Constitution of the country to lend all his
influence, when properly called upon, to give
it force and vigor. And hero let me tell you
that there is nothing so dangerous to liberty
and free government as this doctrine that a
man is not bound to obey the Constitution and
the laws when he does not like them. Mr.
Douglas said that under that doctrine the Re
publicans, or a portion of them, had insisted
that the Fugitive Slave law should not be en
forced, and had in many instances prevented
its being carried out, and that the effects of
this bad example could now be seen in the
re-opening of the slave trade, and the escape
of those engaged in it when captured without
1 suffering the penalty.
Fie alluded to the action of the Whig and
Democratic Conventions in 1852, when they
both re-affirmed the principles of the com
promise of 1850, and asked why we cannot
now stand where the great leaders of both those
great parties then stood. If we adhered to that
principle now there would be an end of sec
tional strife, but if we violated that principle
and adopted Congressional intervention there
would be no peace on the slavery question and
no cessation of sectional strife so long as the
Union continued as our fathers made it, com
posed of free and slave States. In the great
struggle which took place in Illinois last year,
the Democratic party had stood firmly united
upon the Cincinnati platform, (16 - adoring
that they would carry out that principle and
let the people act for themselves, not only in
Kansas, but in every other State and Territory.
whether they wanted slavery or not. [Cheers.]
It was true that in that struggle he had found
himself assailed by not only the Republicans,
hut by an unholy and unnatural combination
of opposite parties, but still he had stood firmly
by the Democratic platltirm, and' the great
principle of non-intervention and popular
sovereignty, mad had been faithful t the regu
lar organization of the Dernoeratie party, and
had whipped the combined forces of the ene
mies. ['l hree cheers.] Why couldn't not the
Democracy of Pennsylvania follow that exam
ple, and accomplish the same result, or rather,
he would ask, why not follow their own exam
ple. Never in the history of this country bad
the Democratic party ever elected a President
without the vote of Pennsylvania. Who elected
Washington, Jefferson, M igon, Mon roe,
Jackson and Van Buren, and every other Dem
ocratic candidate front that day to this. 'Wero
the Democracy of Pennsylvallift now going to

against principle or yield it for the salve of har
mony, yet, in order to preserve the principle , .

WASHINGTON CITY, September 6.—Them
is no truth in the - recent statement from Vere
Cruz, that Minister M'Lane had presented an
ultimatum, and demanded an immediate ratifi
cation of the trenty,for it is known hero that the
preliminary points thereof were mutually sat
isieLory to both this government and that of
the Constitutionalists. It was also understood
that if the treaty should be ratified on this ba
sis, M'Lane himself would return to Wash
ii.gton. The Main points probably are right
fo way across the Northern. States of Mexico,
from the Rio Grande to Mrizatlan, and from
Arizona to Guaymas, or- some other outlet on
the Gulf of California; the United States are to
have the privilege of transportion.
