In this view, I recommend the adop

Resolved, By the Senatj3 and House of Rep

in Congress assembled, two-thirds of both
Houses concurring, that the following .Arti
-1 ales be proposed to the Legislatures or Con
`: ventions of the several . States, !as Amend
• meets to the Constitution of the United States,
all or any of which Articles, when ratified by'
j three-fourths of the said Legislatures or Con
, .rentions, to be valid as a part or parts of the
said Constitution, vie :
Awriesa--Every State wherein Slavery' ow
exists which shall abolish the same therein at
any time or times before the first day of Jan
nary, in the year of our Lord one thousand
nine bnndred,shnll receive compensation from
the United States, as follows, to wit :
. The President of the United States shall de
liver to every such State bonds of the United
States, nearing interest at the rate of for
each slave Shown to have been therein by the
Eighth Census of the United States, said bonds
to be delivered to such State by installments, ,
or:in one parcel, at the completion of the
abolishment, accordingly as the same shall
have been gradual or at one time within . such
'State ; and interest shall begin to run upoh
any such bond only from the proper time of
its delivery as aforesaid, and afterward. Any
State having received bonds as aforesaid,and
afterward introducing or tolerating Slavery
therein, shall refund to the United States the
bonds so received or the value thereof and' ll ;
interest paid thereon.
AILTICLE.—AII slaves who shall have enjoy
ed actual freedom, by the chances of the war,
at any time before the end of the Rebellion,
shall be forever free ; but all owners of such,
Who shall not have been disloyal, shall be
compensated for them at the same rates as is
proVided for States adopting abolishment •of
Slavery, but in such a way that no slave shall
be twice accounted for.
Awricut.—pongress may appropriate money
and otherwise provide for colonizing free col
ored persons, with their own consent, at any
place or places without the United States.:
I beg indulgence to discuss these pro
posed article's at some length.
Without Slavery, the rebellion could
never have existed; without Slavery, it
could not continue. Among the friends
of the Union there is great diversity of
sentiment and of policy in regard to
Slavery and the African race among us.
Some would abolish it suddenly, and
without compensation ; some would abol
ish it gradually, and with compensation;
some would remove the freed people from
us, and some would retain them with us;
and there are yet.other minor diversities.
Because of these .diversities, we waste
much strength in struggles among,nur
selves ; by mutual concession,, we should
harmonize and act together. This - would
be a compromise among the friends and
not with the enemies of the Union.
These articles are intended to embody a
plan of such mutual concessions.' If the
plan shall be adopted, it is assumed that
emancipation will follow, at least in sev
eral of the States. As to the first article,
the main points aro :
I. The emancipation.
2. The length of time for connummat
ing (thirty-seven years); and, II
3. The compensation.
' r
The Emancipation Will be unsatisfac
tory to the advbcates of perpetual Slavery,
but the length of time should greatly
mitigate their dissatisfaction. The time
spares both races from the evils of Bud
' den; derangement; in fact, from the tie-1
cessity of any derangement, while most
of those whose habitual course of thought
will be disturbed by the measure will
have passed away before 'its cons,umtua- 1
Lion, They will -never see it.E Another
class will hail the prospect oCemancipa- 1
tion, but will deprecate the :length of
time. They will feel that it gives too
little to the now Irving _ slaves.- But it
really gives them much. " It 'saves them
from the vagrant destitution which must
largely / attend immediate emancipation in'
localities where their numbers are very
great, and
- it gives the inspiring assurance
that their4osterity shall be free: forever.
The plan leaves to each State choosing to
act under ft to,abolish Slavery now or at
the end sof the century, or at any inter
mediate time, or by degrees extending
over the whole or any part of the period,
and it obliges no two States to proceed
alike. It also provides for compensation,
and generally the mode of making it.
This, it would seem, must further miti
gate the dissatisfaction Of those who favor
perpetual Slavery and especially of those
who are to receive compensation. Doubt
less, some of those , who are Ito pay and
riot to receive, will object; yet that the
measure is both just and economical is
The liberation of the sfaves is the de
struction of property; property acquired
by descent or by purchase,. the same as
any other property.
It is no foil true for having been often
said that the people of the South are no,
more responsible for the original intro-,
duction of this property than are the
people of the North; and when it is re
tempered her unhesitatingly 'we uso—'
all of ns use—cotton and sugar, and'
share the profits of dealing in them, it
may not be quite safe to say, that the
South has been more responsible than
the North for its continuance. If, then,
fur a common object, this property is to
be sacrificed; is it not just that it be done
at a common charge ? And if with lees
money, or money , more easily paid we
can preserve the benefits of _the Union
by that means than we can by the iwai
alone, is it not also economical to do it?
Let ns consider it then. Let us forcer-,
Min the sum we have expended in' the
war. since - compensated emancipation
was proposed, last" March, and consider
whether, if that measure bad been
promptly accepted .by"even some .of 'the
Slave States', the same sum would' not
havtudane more to elose, the war than
has been Otherwise done. If le,' the
measure would save money, and in that
view, would be a prudent and economicali
meastiro.: certainty, ' it is not
,so easy to
_as' it is to pay nothing.
But it is easier to pay a large sum 'than
it is to pay a larger one, and it is easier
to pay any sum, when we are able,:than
it is to pay it" •
.before 'we are able. ',The
war requires them at once. The aggre
gate intm'ne esiary for' compensated
of reline, would be large,
but it would. uire no_ ready cash, , nor
l i
toode-even, any- faster thin:the 'emanci
pation progress:* This might not, and
probably would net' close before the end
of the thirty-seven years. At tbat. - time,
we shall probably. have 100,000,000 of
people to share the burden, instead of
31,000,000, as now; and, not only so,
but - the increase of our population may
be expected to continue for a long time
after the period' as rapidly as before,
because our territory will not have become
full. Ido not state this inconsiderately.
l At the same—ratio of- increase which we
have maintained on an average from our
first National Census-in 1790, until that
of 1860, we should, in 1900 have a pop
ulation of 103,208,415, and why may we
not continue that ratio far beyond that '
period? Our abundant room, ou-rbroad i
National homestead is our ample resource.
Were our territory as limited as are the
British Isles, very certainly our popula
tion could not expand as stated. Instead
'of receiving the foreign-born, - es now, we
should be compelled to send part of the
native-horn away ; but such is not our
condition. We, have 2,963,000 square
miles. - Furope has 3,300,000, :with ' a
population averaging seventy-three and
one-third persons to the square miles.
Why may not our country at some time
average as many? Is it ; less fertile?
Has it more wastesurface by mountains,
rivers, lakes, deserts, or Other causes ?
Is it inferior to Europe iO any 'natural
advantage ? If, then, we are at some
time to be as populous as Europe, how
soon ?. As to when this may be, we can
edge by the past and the present.. As
o when it will, if ever, depends much on
rwhether we maintain the Union. Several
of our State r s are above the average Euro
Ipean population of 731 to the square ,
mile. Massachusetts has 157, Rhode
l lsland 133, New York and New Jersey
each 'BO ;, and two other great States,
Pennsylvania end Ohio, are not far below,
the former having 68, and the latter 59.
The States, already above the European
average, except New York, have increased
in as rapid ratio since passing that point
as ever before, while no one of them is
equal to some other parts of our country,
in natural capacity for sustaining a dense
Taking the nation in the aggregatcf,
and we find , its population' and ratio of
increase for the several decennial periods
to bo as follows :
1790. 3,929,827 , f
1800. 5,305,937-35.02 pr ct ratio ofincrease
1810. 7,239,914-36,45 pr ct ratio of increase
1820. 9,638,131-33,49 pr ct ratio of interest
1830: 12,866,020 .33,49 pr ct ratio of increase
1840. 17,869,453-32.67 pr ct ratio of increase
1850 . 23,191,876-35.87 pi ct ratio of increase
1860. 31,443,790-35.58 pr ct ratio of increase
This shows an average decennial in
crease of 34.60 per cent. in population
through the seventy years from our first
to our last census taken. It is seen that
the rates of increase at no. one of these
seven periods is either two per cent below
or two per cent above the average, thus
showing hoe; inflexible, and consequently
how reliable the law of increase in our
case is. Assuming that it wile continue,
it gives the following results : 1870,
42,323,341; 1880, 56,967,216; 1890,
76,677,872 ; 1900, 103,208,415 ; 1910,
138,918,526; 1920; 186,984,335; 1930,
251,680,914. These figures show that
our country tnay be as populous as
Europe now is at some point between
1920 and 1930, say about 1925—0ur
territory, at 73i persons to the square
mile, being of the capacity to contain
217,186,000; and we will reach this, too,
if we do not ourselves relinquish the
chances by the folly and evils of disunion,
or by long and exhausting war, springing
from the only great element of national
discord among us. While it cannot be
foreseen exactly how much one huge ex
ample of secession breeding lesser • ones
indefinitely would retard the population,
civilization, and prosperity, no one can
doubt that the extent of it irould be very
great and injurious.
The, proposed emancipation would,
shorten the war, perpetuate peace, insure
this increase of the population and pro,
Portionately,of. the wealth of the country.
With this we should pay all the emanci
pation would cost, together with our other
debts, easier than we should Pay our other
debts without it. If we had allowed our
old national debt to run at 6 per cent per
annum, !Amide interest; ficim the end of
our Revolutionary struggle' till, to•day
without guying anything on either
principal er interest, each . man of us would
owe less upon that debt now than each
man owed upon it then, and this because
our inorei,sse of. men through the whole
period has been greater than 6 per cent.,
and has run faster than the interest upon
the debt:' ;tittle alone relieves el
debtor' nation- so long as its population
increases - Ifaster than tiepaid_interest
accumulateS on its debt.. This fant'siould
be tio excuse M. delaying the payment of
Iwhat is justly_due, bat it shows.the great
importance •of time in this connection,
the great advantage Oa *MO , by which
we shall not him to pay until we number
a hundred millions, what by a different
policy we should have to pay now, when
the number is but 81,000,000. In a
word, it shows that a dollar will be much
harder to pay for the war than :will be a
dollar for emancipation on the propOsed
plan—and then the latter will cost no
blood; no precious life. It will be a
saving of both.
As to the second article, I think it
would be impracticable to return to
bondage the class of persons therein
contemplated. Some of them doubtless,
in the property sense, belong to loyal
owners, and . hence provision is made in
this article for compensatinisuch.
The third article relates to the future
of the' freed people. It does not oblige,
but merely authorizes, Congrese to aid in
colonizing such as may consent. This
ought not to be regarded as , objectionable
on the one hand or on the other, insomuch
as it comes to nothing unless by mutual
consent of the people to be deported and
the American voters, throut their repre
sentatives in Congress.
I cannot make it better known than it I
already is that I strongly favor coloniza
tion, and yet I wish to say there is an'
objection urged against the colored
persona remaining in the country which'
is largely imaginary, if not sometimes ,
malicious. ,It is insisted that their
presence would injure and displace white
labor and white laborers. If there ever
could be a proper time for mere en7v
meats, that time surely . is not now. I.n l
times like the present, men should utter
nothing for which they would not wil
lingly be responsible through time and
Is it true, then, that colored people can
displace any more white labor by being
free than remaining slims ? If they stay
in their old places, they lostle no white
labores. If they leave their old places,
they leave them open to white labors.—
Logically, there is neither more nor less
of it. Emancipation, even without de
portation, would probably enhance-the
wages 0' white labor, and very surely
would not reduce them. Thus the cus
tomary amount of labor would still have
to be performed. The freed people would ,
surely not do more than their old propor
tion of it, awl very propably for a time
would do lass, leaving an increased part
to white laborers, bringing their labor into
greater demand, and consequently en
hancing the wages of it. With deportation,
even to a limited extent, enhancing wages
to 'white labor is mathematically certain.
Labor is like any other commodity in the
market ; increase the demand for it, and
you increase the price of it. Reduce the
supply of black labor by colonizing 'the
black laborers out of the country, and by
precisely so much you ineiease the. demand
for and wages of white labor. But it is
dreaded that the freed people will swarm
forth and cover the whole land. Are
they not already in the land? Will
liberation make them any more numerous?
Equally distributed among the whites of
the whole country, there would be but
one colored to seven whites. Could the
one in any way greatly disturb the seven?
There are many communities now
having more than one free colored person
to seven whites, and this .without any
apparent consciousness of evil it.—
The District of Columbia, and the States
of Maryland and Delaware are all in this'
condition. The District has more than
One free colored person to nix ; and
yet in its frequent petitions to Congress,
I believe it has never presented the
presence of free colored persons as one of ]
its grievances:
But why should 'Emancipation South
send the freed people North t People of
any color seldom run unless there be
something to nu from. Heretofore,
colored people to some extent have fled
Noith from bondage, and now perhaps
from both bondage and destituton • but
if Gradual Emancipation or depo rtation',
be adopted, they will have neither to floe
from. Their old masters will give them
wages, at least until new laborers can be
procured and the freed men will gladly
give their labor for the wages till new
homes can be found for them in congenial
dimes and with - people of their own
blood and race.
This proposition can be trusted to the mu
tual interests involved, and in any event, can
not the North decide for itself whether to re
ceive them ? Again, as practice proves more
than theory in any case, has there been any
irruption of colored people northwiard be
cause of the abolishment of Slavery in this
District last Spring?
What I have said of the proportion of free
colored persons to the srliites in the District
is from the Census of 1860, having no refit.-
ence to persons called contrabands, nor to
those made free by the act of Congress abol
ishing Slavery here. The plan consisting of
these articles is recommended, not but tha
