Will Senator Toombs Call the Ball of his
Slaves under the Shadow of Bunker Hill
Monument 1
Mihen Senator Toombs declared that he
would yet call the roll of his slaves under
the shadow of the Bunker Hill Monument,
the people of the North raised a shout of
derision ut the folly of the remark. It Was
made, if our memory serves us right, about
the time of the passage of the Kansas-Ne
braska bill ; and the South were then war
ned, in and out of Congress, that their
continued aggressions would, era long, pro
voke the North to extreme measures, in
maintenance of their just rights. Since
that the Missouri Compromise has been
overthrown by act of Congress, and that
overthrow sustained by the Supreme Court
of the United States; and in the Passmore
1 Williamson case Judge Crier decided that
! slaves were not entitled to their freedom,
when voluntarily brought into a free State
by their master, notwithstanding State
laws to that effect. Tnese two decisions
taken together, give the sluveholder the
right to hold his slaves as his property
anywhere in the United States—corning
right up to the doctrine of Mr. Calhoun,
that wherever the Comtitmion extends,
there Slavery may of right exist, indepen
dent of any State or National legislation.
The two decisions, then, give Mr
Toombs the right to muster his slaves um
poi' the sacred soil of Bunker Hill, and
there hold them in deliaticn or any Na
tional or state laws; and that shout of de
rision ha's suddenly been turned into an
exclamation fif few and sorrow ! .
