any concern or interest.' tf slavery is an evil, the
evil is with them. IT there ii rtuilt in it, tho guilt
is theirs, not ours, since neither the State, where
it does not exist, nor the Government of the U.
States can, without usurpation of power, and the
viola. ion of a solemn compact, do anything to re
move it without the consent of those who are im
mediately interested. Every movement which is
madu hy the Abolitionists in the non-slave-holding
States is viewed by our Southern brethren as an at
tack upon their rights, and which, if persisted in,
must in the end endicRte those feelings of attach
ment and affliction between the citizens of all the
States which was produced by a community of in
terests and dangers in the War of the Revolution,
which was tho foundation of our happy union, and
by a continuance of which, it can alone be preserved.
I entreat you then, to frown upon measures which
are to produce results so much to be deprecated.
The opinion which I have now given, I have omit
ted no opportunity for the last two years to lay be
fore tho people of mv own State." I havo taken
the liberty to express tliem here, knowing that even
if they should unfortunately not accord with yours,
that they would be kindly received."
Fellow citizens, of Missouri: May we not
here enquire, in the language of one of tho most
upright and distinguished statesmen of the ago
whether there "can be found, even in the produc
tions of any southern statcsmnn, a more energetic
and unsparing denunciation of the schemes of tho
abolitionists? He pronounces them to be "weak,
presumptuous nnd uncon.stitutional"--illegal, per
socuting and dangerous;" and after depicting in
glowing language tho fatal consequences to which
they must lead, he calls upon his audience with
indignant earnestness, to "frown upon measures
which are to produco results so much to be depre
cated." He lays down in tho broadest and most
unequivocal terms, the fundamental principle that
the subject of slavery is under tho solo and ex
clusive jurisdiction of the States in which it exists,
and that neither the General Government nor the
non slave-holding States have any right whatever
to interfere with it; and lie moreover contends
that discussions upon tho subject in tho non-slave
holding Slates, tending in their consequences, as
they do, to jeopard the peace and impore the
rights of the slave-holding States, are an abuse
of tho freedom of speech and of the pres3, in vi.
olation of the spirit and perving design of the
Constitution. The same declarations were made
by him, and with greater emphasis, if possible, in
an address delivered to an assembly of his fellow
citizens at Cheviot, in Ohio, on the 4th of July,
1833; from which an isolated passage, (in which
the author admitting slavery to be an evil, says he
would gladly see the surplus revenue of the
Union devoted to its progressive extinction by the
purchase and colonization of the slaves, 'with the
ianction of the Stales holding them,') has been
artfully culled, and given to the public, carefully
suppressing the context, in which General Harri
son maintains, in the strong and unqualified Ian
gunge I am about to cite, that "tho slave popula
tion is under the exclusive control of the Stales
which possess them," and that "neither the Gen
eral Government nor the non slave-holding States
can inte; fere in any way, with the right of pro
perty in slaves," and at the same time denounces
the schemes of the abolitionists as fraught with
"horrors, upon which an incarnate devil only
could look with approbation."
hut even if the incidental and abstract sugge.
tions above noticed in tho Clievoit speech of
Gen. Harrison were to be looked at, disconnec
ted from its context, however we might differ
from him both as to its practicability and some
of the principles involved, justice nnd candor
would still require us to beur in mind that, but
a few years ago, similar sstiments were freely
expressed both by the prees end public conn
ciis of Virginia, and that a plan effecting the
samo object, almost identical with that thrown
out by Gen . Harrison, was developed and earn
estly advocated by Mr. Jefferson, in a letter ud
dressed by him, during tho last year of his life,
to Mr. Sparks, which you will see in the 4th
Vol. of his writings, page 333-391. Hut 1
again repeat, where is the man ; whether of the
north, who, in the practical assertion of the
rights of the south, and in energetic an I decis
tve reprobation of tho projects of the Abolition
ists, has gone- farther that Gen. Harrison A
just people cannot forget the noblo and sclfsac
rificing devotion with which ha stood alone,
out of ull the Rrepresematives of the Western
non-slave-holding States except McLane, oi
Illinois and the little band of but two or three
from the whole non-slave-holding region of the
Union, in steadily resisiing on behulf of the
rights and interests! of the south, the memor
able Missouri restriction, und the kindred pro
position mitdo at the same period to restrict th
introduction of slaves into the Territory of Ar
kansas a patriotic solf-devotion by which he
lost his seat in Congress, und incurred popular
odium and proscription, for a season, in his own
Slate. All this Gen. Harrison did freely, from
a sense of his duty to the Constitution of his
Country, and to the rights and interests of the
southern States, at a timn when he had nothing
to ask at their hands. What was the course
tho present chief Magistrate in whoso behalf
General Harrison is now sought to be stiff n
tized as an Abolitionist, under the same fir
cumslances? He, then, as a member of the
Senate of New York, vote! in favor of instruc
tions to tho Senators and Representatives of
that State in Congress; to support the Missour
restriction, and a year or two ufici wards, as a
member of tho Senate of the Lnited States, vo
ted in fuvor of a proposition to restrict the in
troduction of slaves into the territory ol
Florida. Well, therefore, might iho south re
quire of him some pledge of fiduliiy to the
rights, when ho became a candidate for tliei
suffrages to elevate him to the station he now
occupies. Bit what further or higher pledge
can General Harrison have to give, than his
conduct and opinions, uniformly sustained
through every change of circumstances, and at
every personal sacrifice, coupled with thai
jist und Republican definition of the true pro
vince of ibo Presidential veto in his lot'.er to
Sherrod William, Esq , in which he says, "it
is a Conservative power, inlcn led only to be
used to secure the constitution itself from vio
lation, and to protect the right of the mbiorily
nnd the weaker members of the Union," a
definition obviously framed, in its last clause
particularly, with reference to that vital inter
est sf the South, of which be has proved him

"1st. I do not b"?!iuve that Congress can abolish
slavery in the Slates, or in any manner inter re
with the property if the citizens in their shire;:, but
upon tl.e application of the States, in which case,
and in no other, they might appropriate money to
aid the states so npplying to get rid of their slaves.

the ground upon which I voted against the Mis

entertained by Mr. Jefferson and Madison.

slavery in the District of Columbia, without the

Cut we have a sill later letter from the

The Courier says.
"Willi unfeigned delight then, not because we

to do justice, and we tuke sincere pleasure in array

of our correspondent, ive place loan extract of n
letter from deiieral Harrison, dated a tew days
ince. and addressed to a distinguished member of

be genuine) record his lull und unqualified endorse

Here is tin extra:! alluded to from the hand
of the old Hero:
"I saw some time since, nn artielo from the
Charleston Courier, ftatintf that toy Vinrciines
speech contained all that the South had a right to
expect mi the question. In a subsequent article.
however, the editor says that. 1 had concealed my
sentiments on the subject, nficr I had been brought
out as a candidate for tho l'r wiener. In ibis the
editor greatly errs. Thi speech was delivered ai
Vincenuos, in 13:io. At that time my namo was up
ou every Administration paper in Indiana, as the
opposition candidate, and upon most of those in
Ohio, and I had bJen mentioned, in a very con
siderable number of public mee'ings, many months
before. My first nomination at llarrisluirg. IVnn
took place in tho fall of ISU-l. I Pnclo-e you a
paper of Feb. 7, 1335, tu show how extensively I
was then regarded as a candidate for the Presi
dency." We will conclude this lengthened exposition,
fellow. citizens, by an allusion to the garbled ex
tract which is going the rounds of the Van Buren
press, purpoiting to be copied from an address of
General llanisoii, without date, in which he is
made to declare himself a member of an abolition

was to "ameliorate the condition of slaves, an J

MAT i'Eliti AND THINGS.
We have hi e l attending Club meetings th s
vee!.-, which we might oiu-r as an opulegy for
any diminution in llie quantity or qaality id
our editorial. The great s;iac, however,
which is occupied by u continuation of the
Address of tbe Central Co'iunitte'j evhides

also, pnstp ines the pieei s of some of oar cor
res oiidents. The addu ss will be concluded
in ou r next, from w beuc.U'i. rward we v. Ill be
enabled to give greater variety to our oidumns.
Of this variety, will be the most prominent

ed the country from gluducss! And jro-peril j
to wida spread despondency and prospective
ruin. " Prospective," did we say? It would
bo so, but for tho g!uiiou tidingi which
reach us from every quarter, nnd which
cannot find room to spread out to gladden
our readers oa we aro. We havo cxshaken
faith that the majority of General arrisou
will Le decidedly thy heaviest which a private
citizen ever received over a President in of
fice (m contest we never again expect to wit
ness) and already hear of overtures and im
portunities on tbe part of the rnot boastful
and sanguine of tho locos to " draw" the bfts
they have made with the whts. Appropns,
of betting : Thoso who will study the nnturo
of tho human heart, oolit no! to bet against
a parly which has been in the ascendant. It
tends, to some extent at lens'., lo revive old
feelings, and old prc-jad:..es, which have too
long existed already for the country's good.
Let our whig friends, therefore, content them
selves with doing their duty, from motives of
patriotism a'e ne nnd neither yield to their
own excitement wiien a favourable bet is
proposed, nor give at.y other occusion for
connecting aught with iho great issue w hich
is before the country, save that issue itself.
The people will be with ibem the country
will be redeemed from the hands cf hypo
crites nnd deceivers, and in tho restoration
of its prosperity they cm well have foregone
the chances of winning tbe money of tLvu
adversaries. There is something, too, in tie
muxitn, that " a good man loves b;s neighbor
too n-eli to win bis money, nnd himself tiJU
well to loose it." Steady '. all will be we'd.
JXj' Remf.mder: Tiie Winers do not chum
the City of New York in the coming election.
The Custom House is there, and its army of offi
cers are taxed too heavily to support the bribery
fund, to hope for the reclauiauon of tbe city short
of a miracle. It is in tiie Country atnon.'st the
Farmers where Harrison has gained so heavily
on tho last years Whig vote, ai d where lie will
ontinue to pain daily until November.
A PitopiiET. The Democrat of Wednesday
morning contained a p.uajiapli to the effect that,
all its accounts wet.', to shew that the Harrison
vote of this year would be short of the arrisou
and White vote of 'SO. Lo! Tho wail of the
same '.nori.'uu brought the lesult of the election
in Connecticut, giving the arrisou candidate for
Governor a majority of between 4 and 0000, in a
State where .Mr. Van Duren bed beaten old Tipp
567 in the canvass of ".i'i'. DO It is on such
papers as this that the party rely, nnd on such
pred ciions as this that they picdicn'.u their bets.
