Theyloonlanot he brought North; and if such
a thing were possible, every sane man tenet

worse. They would not only be slaves, but'
miseiehle; starving, degraded slaves. As was
remarked liy the Senator from Virginia the
other day, in tracing the consequences of war
,betw en the two sections, and justly denying
the ight and possibility of subduing , the
Soul , if you' had the South subdued, what
weul you do with the slaves! • i
II said, es-I say. you would have to retain
themlthere ; and if the South were conquered
provinces of the North, the institution of slav
ery Would have to be *maintained, and, the
righti, of property in slaves recognised. What
a begird we are running, then, Mr. Presi
dent; for an idle abstraction or a vain delu
sion! .
I have no pleasure,, air, in this kind of talk.
As ( od is my judge, I have no heart in it at
all. lam in, no spirit of criminatiou. I stand
her between' the extremes of the: North`and
the outh, getting but little cocintenancie or
sym athy from either side; bit I stand for my
country, for the Union of thes&States, for the
curiae or justice and humanity, for the right,
for duty and lidellty,on all bands, and against
a fratricidal war st all times and In every con
tingency. ... .
I I have already said : that"! do not , hold
Southern men blameless on this subject. They
have indulged a spirit of recrimination and
retaliation collards the North neither wise nor

and well : calculated to provoke aggression and

nec ssarjly sensitive and exacting in unim
po ant points, and at all times have left the
imp ession that nothing . that the Northern
peel le could do 'or say would relieve their ap
prehensions or assuage their feelings.
..01 for eecession, — l am utterly opposed to it.
I deny the right and abhor the consequences.
Bat I shall indulge in no argument en that
point ; it is'no remedy for any one of the evils
lam toted, and, 'in m,y judgment, it will aggra
vate rather than remove them; and, in addi
tion, superinduce countless others of a more
distressing and destructive character. di It
were wiser to bear the ills that we have than

South? Will it extend the area of their

Mr. Chairman and Fellow Cttisens:—Aftex
the exhaustive speech of Tliy yeneiable friend,
who has just finished abusing you, I feel
that anything I might add to his ,remarks
would be superfluous. 'But, al I some from

indeed everything breathes of IMMBellakand

you. (Cheers.) The audience that is before me

commencing with the 6iFt of August, and
ending with the next issue after the Pres

CENTS, invariably in advance. Each subscrip
tion will be promptly discontinued at the
expiration of the time, unless other, direc
tions are given by the persons receiving
'the ppaper.
We earnestly urge the Democrats of
Erie, Warren, Crawford - and Ashtabula
*counties to make a special effort to in
crease the circulation of the 011aritilt
during the exciting andimportant politi
cal campaign so soon to open. Let 'no
man wait upon , his neighbor to commence
the work of obtaining subscriptions, but
enter upon it himself, with energy, deter
mination and persistency. • The crisis de
mands the services of all, and no one can
excuse himsell'who fails to perfornihis
dutyo3 this hour of his country ' s danger.
We should hive at least two thousand.

the close of August. Let others do their ditty
and we will not fail to perform oars.
