XXV i llth COngress, 11r. Adams and 19
other Members 'of Congress published an
address to the people-1)f the Free . States.
It was dictated and signed by him.
The address, speaking of the annes - a .
Lion of.Thsaii, declares that "it is itupos
elide for 'any man to doubt that the form
atidn of several nee) slarcholdlng States ,
are; the. real 'objects of the Executive.—

Such were the opijiions of Mr. Adams
left on record over his own signature, and
I feel authorized to sly he cherished-them
while he liVed. It is true that the Free
States' preferred subinission. They went
into a novir Union with Texas rather than
separate &Mu the Slave States, They
joined in the war, participated in the sae:-
tine° of eighty thou Sand human yiethns,
and incurred aldebt pf two hundred mil
lions dollars; and to; this day the people .
of i dle Free States are taxed million's of
dollarS annually to • protect tho . poople of
Texati' in their Slavery, and matutain the
ascendancy of the Democratic party by
aid of Texan voles. I may also add that
the Unmanly surrender- to that outrage
I struck the Whig party with moral and po
litiieal death. And I speak the solemn
cOnvietioas of my' own mind-a-lieu I say
that NILO surrender by' the -Republicans
h 1 r' ekard to Cuba aught to be attended
with the like result:
But the doctrines avowed by •Mr. Ad
aMs remained unchanged. I then sub
seribed to them. I signed the address.
It spoke the sentiments of my - heart.—
Those opinions have been strengthened
and intensified by fifteen years of observ-
Aden and ;experience. - Resistance to the
extension l and increase of the slave I 1 pow
er constitutes an essential element in the
liopublienn platform on which that party
has risen and extended until at-this time
l it wields the moral power of the nation.
Tile surrender of this doctrine Would be a
surrendO, a dti4andrnent of the only par
