WASHINGTON AND THE CoRNER-StoKE. A
correspondent of tho Bangor Whig gives the
following reminiscence of Gen. Washington :
Being on a visit to Washington during the
recess of Congress in the spring of '67, I
walked one day with a friend, to view the works
which were then already in progress for the
extension of the Capitol. As wo sauntered
among the pillars in the basement of the old
building, we fell in with a venerable-looking
man, having the appearance of a countryman,
who seemed to bo there on the same business
that wo were. We entered into conversation
with him, and he informed us that he was a
Virginian, "raised" a fuw miles down the
river, not far from Mount Vernon. " Very like
ly, then," we remarked, " you may recollect
Gen. Washington." ' Perfectly well," replied
he ; " indeed, I saw him when ho laid the found
ation of this building. I was but a boy then,"
ho continued, " but I remember very distinctly
how he looked as he stood in this way over the
stone, and settled it in its place with a pry. It
was a huge stone, and, as placed, it must have
required no little strength to move it; but the
General was a very athletic man, and moved
it apparently with ease. There were a num
ber of boys thero from our neighborhood, and
it was a standing marvel to us all, how the
General moved that stone. A few days after,
thi General happened to be riding by ourschool
house on horseback, as we were playing out
side. We all pulled off our hats to him, and
he stopped his horse for a, moment, and spoke
to us very pleasantly. One of the boys cried
out, ' Please, General, tell us how it was you
moved that great stone, up yonder, the other
fl day.' ' Why, boys,' said he, smiling, ' did I
5 move the stone 1 ' ' 0 yes, General, you moved
it) we all saw you.' ' Well, boys, said tho lien
eral, looking very serious and speaking slowly,
shaking his long finger nt us as ho spoke, 'Do
you see that nobody ever moves that stone
again I ' "
Oil Anecdote Emm More as Twelve.
A Dutchman leased his lands to an oil compa
ny, last sping, on condition of receiving one
eighth of the oil procured. The well proved to
be a pretty good pno, and the farmer began to
think that the oil men should give him a better
chance, and ventured to tell them so. They
asked him what he wanted. lie said they
ought to givo one twelfth. Tho agreement
was finally made, with tho understanding that
the Dutchman was not to tell any one. All
went smooth until tho next division day came,
when our friend was early on hand to seo how
much better he would be off under the new bar
gain. Eleven barrels were rolled to one side
for tho oil men, and one for him. This did
not suit him. " How's dish," sajs he, " I link
1 was to get more as bvlbre ; by jinks, you
make mistake." The matter was explained to
him, that he formerly got one barret of every
eight, but it was his "own proposition to only
take ono of every twelve. This revelation took
him aback. He scratched his head, looked
cross, and relieved his swelling breast of feel
ings of self-reproach by indignantly remarking :
" Veil, by dunder, dat ish de firs.t time as ever
I know'd eight was moro as dwelve." Trum
Some Opinions of Mr. Lincoln.
SELECTED VERBATIM FROM 11I.S SPEECHES, AND
PERTINENT TO TUB rRESEXT OCCASION.
" I say that we must not interfere with the
institution of slavery in the States where it ex
ists, because the Constitution forbids it, and the
general welfare does not require us to do so.
We must not withhold an eflicient fugitive slave
law, because tho Constitution requires us, as I
understand it, not to withhold such a law. But
we must prevent the outspreading of the in
stitution, because neither the Constitution nor
tho general welfare requires us to extend it.
Wc must prevent the revival of the Africuu
slave trade, and tho enacting by Congress of a
Territorial slave code. We must prevent each
of these things being done by either Congress
or courts. The peoplo of the United States are
the rightful masters of both Congresses and
courts not to overthrow the Constitution, but
overthrow the men who pervert the Constitu
tion I " Speech at Cincinnati, September 18,
" I hold myself undor constitutional obliga
tions to allow the people in all the States, with
out interference, direct or indirect, to do exact
ly as they please; and I deny that I have any
inclination to interfere with them, even if there
were no such constitutional obligation. I can
only say again, that I am placed improperly
altogether improperly, in spite of all that I can
say when it is insisted that I entertain any
other views or purposes in regard to that mat
ter (slavery.)" Speech at Jonesboruugh, 111.,
Sept. 1C, 1858.
" While it (slavery) drives on in its state of
progress as it is now driving, and as it has
driven for the last five years, I have ventured
tho opinion, and say today, that we will have
no end to tho slavery agitation until it takes
ono turn or tho other. I do not mean that when
it takes a turn toward ultimate extinction it
will be in a day, nor in a year, nor in two
years. 1 do not suppose that in the most peace
ful way ultimate extinction would occur in less
than a hundred years at least ; but that it will
occur in the best way for both races, in God's
own good time, I have no doubt." Sjiecch at
Charleston, 111., Sept. 18, 1858.
" Mr. Douglas's popular sovereignty, as a
principle, is Bimply this : If ono man chooses
to niako ft slave of another, neither that man
nor nnybody else has a right to object."
Speech at Cincinnati, Sept. 17, 1851).
" I have intimated that I thought the agita
tion (of slavery) would not cease until a crisis
should be reached und passed. I have stated
in what way I have thought it would bo reached
nnd pasted. Wo might, by arresting the fur
ther spread of it, and placing it whero the
fathers originally placed it, put it where the
public mind should rest in the belief that it was
in the course of ultimate extinction. Thus tho
agitation may cease. It may bo pushed for
ward until it shall become alike lawful in all
tho States, old as well as new, North as well as
South. I entertain the opinion, upon evidence
sufficient to my mind, that the fathers of this
Government placed that institution whero the
publio mind aid rest in the belief that it was in
the course of ultimate extinction ; and when I
desire to Bee tho further spread of It arrested,!
only say that I desire to seo that done which
the fathers have first done. It is not true that
our fathers, as Judge Douglas assumes, made
this Government part slave and part free Un
derstand the sense in which he puts it he as
sumes that slavery is a rightful thing within
itself was introduced by the framers of the
Constitution. The exact truth is, that they
found the institution existing among us, and
they left it as, they found it. But in making
the Government, they left this institution with
many clear marks of disapprobation upon it.
They found slavery among them, and they left
it among them because of the difficulty the
absoluto impossibility of its immedlata re
moval." Speech at Alton, Oct. 18, 1858.
' Let mo say I have no prejudice against the
Southern people. They are just what we would
be in their situation. If slavery did not exist
among them they would not introduce it. If
it did now exist among us, we should not in
stantly givo it up. This I believe of the masses,
North and South. Doubtless thero are indi
viduals on both sides who would not hold slaves
under any circumstances; and others who
would gladly introduce slavery anew if it were
now out of existence. Wc know that some
Southern men do free their slaves, go North,
and become tip-top abolitionists ; while some
Northern ones go South, and become most cruel
" When Southern peoplo tell us they are no
more responsible for tho origin of slavery than
we are, 1 acknowledge the fact. When it is
said that the institution exists, and that It is
very difficult to get rid of it in any satisfactory
way, I can understand nnd appreciate tho say
ing. I surely will not blame them for not do
ing what I should not know how to do myself.
If all enrthly power were given me, I should
not know what to do, as to the existing institu
tion. My first impulse would be to free all tho
tlaves, and send them to Liberia to their own
native laud. But a moment's reflection would
convince me, that whatever of high hope (as I
think thero is) there maybe in this, in tho long
run, its sudden execution is impossible. If
they were all landed there in a day, they would
perish in tho next ten days ; and there are not
surplus shipping and surplus money enough in
tho world to carry them there in many times
ten days. What then? Free them all, und
keep them among us as underlings 7 Is it quite
certain that this betters their condition? I
think I would not hold one in slavery nt any
rate; jet tho point is not clear enough to de
nounce peoplo upon.' What next? Free them,
and make them politically nnd socially our
n, lis? My own feelings will not admit of
this; and it mine would, wo well know that
those f the great moss of white people will not.
Whether this feeling accords with justico and
sound judgment, is not tho solo question, if,
indeed, it is any part of it, A universal feel
ing, whether well or ill founded, cannot be
safely disregarded. Wo cannot, then, make
them equals. It docs seem to me that sys
tems of gradual emancipation might bo adopt
ed ; but for that tardiness in this respect, I
will not undertake to judge our brethren of tho
" When they remind us of their constitutional
rights, I acknowledge them, not grudgingly,
but fully and fairly ; and I would givo them
any legislation for tho reclaiming of their fugi
tives, which should not, in its stringency, be
more likely to carry a free man into slavery
that our ordinary criminal laws are to hang an
innocent one. speech at uttowa, ill., Aug.
" Has anything ever threntcned the existence
of this Union, save and except this very institu
tion of Blavery 7 What is it that we hold most
dear amongst us? Our own liberty and pros
perity. What has ever threatened our liberty
and prosperity, save and except this institution
of slavery? If this is true, how do you propose
to improve the condition of things by enlarging
slavery by spreading it out, and making it
" You may havo a wen or cancer on your
person, and not bo able to cut it out, lest you
bleed to death ; but surely it is no way to cure
it to engraft it, and spread it over your whole
body. That is no proper way of treating what
vou regard as a wrong." Speech at Alton, Oct.
" I suppose most of us (I know it of myself)
believe that the peoplo of the Southern States
are entitled to a Congressional fugitive slave
law. As the right is constitutional, I agree
that the legislation shall bo granted to it, and
that not that we like the ins'itutiou of slavery.
We profess to have no tasto for running and
catching negroes ; ut least, I profess no taste
for that job at nil. Why, then, do 1 yield sup
port to a fugitive slave law 7 Bccauso I do not
understand that tho Constitution, which guar
anties that right, can be supported without
it." Speech at Alton, Oct. 15, 858.
"The real issue in this controversy the ono
pressing upon every mind is tho sentiment on
the part ot one class that looks upon tho insti
tution of slavery as n wrong, and of another
class that does not look upon it as a wrong.
The sentiment that contemplates the institution
of slavery in this country as a wrong, is tho
sentiment of tho Republican party. They look
upon it as bciug a moral, social, and political
wrong; and while they contemplate it ns such,
they nevertheless have due regard for its actual
existence among us, and the difficulties of get
ting rid of it in any satisfactory way, and to all
the constitutional obligations thrown about it.
Yet having n duo regard for these, they desire
n policy in regard to it that looks to its not cre
ating any moro danger. They insist that it
should, as far us may be, be treated as a wrong ;
and one of the methods of treating it as a
wrong is to make provision that it shall grow
no larger. If there be a man among uh who
docs not think that the institution of slavery is
wrong in any of the aspects of which I have
epoken, he is misplaced, and ought not to be
with us, And if there be a man umongst us
who is so imputiont of it ns a wroug as to dis
regard its actual presence amoug ns, and tho
dilliculty of getting rid of it suddenly in a sat
islactory way, and to disregard the constitu
tional obligations thrown about it, that man is
misplaced if ho is on our platform." Sjeech at
Alton, uct. 10, 1B08.
A FEW WORDS TO THE SOUTH.
" We the Republicans, and others, formiug
the opposition of tho country, intend to 'stand
by our guns,' to be patientnnd firm, and in the
long run to beat you. When we do beat you,
you perhaps want to know what we will do
with you. I will tell you, so far as I am au
thorized to speak for tho opposition, what we
moan to do with you. Wo mean to treat you,
as nearly as wo possibly can, ns Washington,
Jefferson, and Madison, treated you. Wo mean
to leave you alone, and in no way interfere
with your institution; to abide by every com
promise of the Constitution ; and, in a word,
coming back to the original proposition, to
treat you as far as degenerated men (if we have
degenerated) may, according to the examples
of thoso noble fathers Washington, Jefferson,
and Madison. We mean to remember that you
are as good ns we are ; that there is no dif
ference between us, other than the difference
of circumstances. We mean to recognise and
bear in mind, always, that you have as good
hearts in your bosoms as other people, or as
we claim to have, and to treat ou accord
ingly. Speech at Cincinnati, Sejit. 17, 1859.
