The political history of the country
' w" teaches no fact more plainly than that cer
tain headers of the Democratic party have
sought to -foment sectional differences be
tween the Northern and Southern States of
f - th Union industriously, persevering y,
tin ceasing! v. They have suffered no op
... portunity, for the last twenty or twenty-five
years, to pass uuimproved, to spring new
Issues ia relation to the subject, upon
the country, whereby they saw auy pros
pects of promoting their partizati aims. It
is needless to refer in detail to the origin
and history of the contest on the subject of
the reception of nbolitinn petitions, the
Atherton HesoyuLions and the Twenty-first
i Ilule. These, each and all, have had their
day. and are now snugly stored away among
the '"things that were.'" They served their
- purpose, and were thrown aside as east-ofT
clothe., never to be worn again. They
gave rise to violent antagonisms, to tan 'its
and threats, and to acrimony and bitterness
of feeling. They were cherished so long
as they were of the least service to the
party, or until they were indignantly frowned
down by a deceived constituency. In 1 5-U,
when it was known by the party managers
that a new acquisition of territory was event
ually to result from the Mexican War,
which was then in progress, the resources of
the leaders were again put io the test to
invent some new issue on the slavery tjues
iion which would naturally connect itself
with that acquisition. Accordingly, a frce-
' soil democrat from Pennsylvania, taking
time by the forelock, as tarlyas August of
that year, whilst a bill to furnish supplies
for the Army, known as the two million bill,
vas under consideration, offered a proviso,
prohibiting slavery i:i auy territory that
WSUte KvRi AV-i" noiV:?hei?'tnrowu
into the party aid created the utmost con
sternation. The old wire-workers v.cra
surprised at their own game, in their own
camps, by one of their own compatriots.
The three most prominent aspirants to the
Presidential succession at that day, were
Messrs. Cass, Bcchaxax and Woodbury.
They, of course, were expected to take
position upon the uninvited u-sne which had
been so unceremoniously thrust before them.
Mr. Woodbury occupied the Supreme
Uench and pleaded th indolieacv of h
giving an opinion on a constitutional -aes-
tion which he might be called upon to
decide judicially. He was free, however,
to refer to his political record as an exposi
tion of his views of government, ami would
not consent to encumber it with any new
declaration. This laid him on the shelf for
that time, and before the net quadrennial
cycle was complete, he rej-osed in death.
Mr. Ii c han'ax went quietly forward with
Ins duties as Secretary of State, well
pleased that his position required no
f present declaration on the subject.
Gen. Cass was in the Senate, and
was " in a peck of troubles." Nobody
could tell precisely where he stood. He
was in a dense fog, through w hich he dis
covered no ray of welcome light. Time wore
-on and the crisis had to be met. The knot
had to be untied,or cut. In December, 1817,
' in answer to the imperative demand of the
occasion, he addressed a letter to Mr. Xich-oi-sov,
our present Senator in Congress, in
whic h he propounded the theory of terirto
rial sovereignty, since called Squatter Sov
ereignty. It was so cautiously worded,
however,that one construction was put upon
it in thti North and another in the Soutb
This, for the time being, made the fortune
of Gen. Cass. Mr. Bi cjjaxax, with char
arteristic moral weakness, sought to evade
the question, and proposed to settle the
' business iu the party, by going for an ex-
tension of the Missouri Compromise line to
- the Pactic. Mr. Cass was nominated and
defeated. The struggle of 1S50 came on,
2 and the compromises of that year were
passed, disposing of all the territory acquir
ed from Mexico and establishing the doc
trine of non-intervention, as explained by
. Mr. Clay, and leaving the constitutional
question in practical elegance
We pause to ascertaiu what tack the
democratic politicians took in the naviga.
Lion of this sea of agitation and quarrel.
The territorial theory propounded by Mr.
Cass was, that the people of the territory
. while iu their territorial condition possessed
bsolute power over all subjects of domes
. ic concern, Including the subject of Slavery
On this doctrine he was supported by the
Democracy of -the Union except that por.
lion which split off on the Wilniot Proviso,
headed by Martix Vaj Bcbln. So far,
" then, as the theory was understood, it was
fully indorsed by the democratic party of
the country. During the discussions of lioOf
in view of the fact that diverse constructions
had been given to the Nicholson letter
Mr. Cass, on the 21st and 22ud of Janua
ry of that year in one of the most elabor
ate, able and philosophic speeches of his
: life, which did more to establish his ability
and jBuperiot mental, enoowxnenta in our
estimation than any other of Lis efforts
. OTght to put to rest all doubt and cavil up
on the subject of his views. It was on the
threshold of the great argument of that
memorable year, and was a clear and pow
erful exposition- of the principles upon
which be rave bis support to- those meas
ures throughout. Aud wo -way say that,
in our view, that speech did more to give
dignity and respectability to the Squatter
Sovereignty theory, than any other deliv
ered in Congress, before or since. Albeit
that even was not sufficient to establish it.
To show what the doctrines in reality is
and was, we subjoiu the following brief
extracts from that speech. Mr. Caps said:
''A great principle is involved in this
controversy the inseparable connection
between legislation and representation.
And what paramount necessity calls for its
vioiatiou . .ire nut inepeonieoi tne ter
ritories competent to manage their own in

I' roved tlii ir enp it v f.r M.df -government,
and life. liU ttv and ami property have been
a- wH protected bv tbeir laws as by the
laws of the Stales. ". It s clear, then, that
tin re is no nece.-.sity for Congress to legis
late for the Territories. They have never
legislated exclusively; and "the very few
instances of the exereie of such a power
upon the statute book were not only uncon
stitutional, but w ere acts of supererogation,
w hich the Territorial Legislature was much
more competent than the National Legisla
ture to consider and determine to the satis
faction of the people of the Territory.
What, then, have we to fear? The great
issues of life and death are left to the peo
ple. No one calls this in question. And
to the same trust may be committed, with
with equal safety, a'tl the other objects of
'And the late proceedings in California to
organize a government, and the constitution
which has been the result, are the best
proofs that could be offered of the capacity
of the people to lay the foundations of their
Klitieal institutions wisely and justly.
What a practical comment is that constitu
tion upon the doubts we have heard ex
pressed in this hall and out of it, respecting
the intelligence of these remote Territories,
and the necessity of restraining them by
Congressional legislation. I know of no
constitution in this broad Union, where the
principles of rational and progressive liber
ty are better secured than in this first great
political offering fiom the shores of the Pa
cific. .' . 1
"If the necessity for social oruer in the j
Territories, as many, perhaps as most of
the speakers contended, is the true founda-
tion of the right of Congress to legislate )
over them, it is a right which extends no
further than may be necessary and proper to
fulfill this first duty of society. The means
must be proper for the end, mid proportion
ed to it : and if this end can be obtained by
the establishment ot local governments, j
there ceases the constitutional action of
Congress, and the internal legislation should
be committed to the people to be affected
bv it. It is essential, therefore, to ascer
tain whence this power comes, that we may
ascertain how far it may go: essential, that
we may not violate the constitution ; essen
tial that we mav not violate a fundamental
t.ri.ieir.le ot freedom, the unalienable con
nection between representation and intern
al legislation : and essential, that the peo
ple of the Territories may conduct their
own concerns in their own way the very
cardinal doctrine of American freedoom.
" This slavery j is a relation which must
be created by the local sovereignty. It is a
municipal regulation of limited extent and,
necessarialy, of a;i equally limited origin.
It is a domestic relation over which the
Federal covernmeht can exercise no con
trol. And. above all. the institution of
slavery is not within any implication which
can be drawn from the power to regulate
and dispose of the public lands or other
property of the United States. As before
remarked, slaves are not treated iu the

the heat and fervor of his zeal, went the
fullest length of Squatter Sovereignty. He
put bevond question all quibbles that might
bo raised on a difference between Squatter
Sovereignty and Popular Sovereignty. The
case of California was pure Squatter Sov
ereignty just as pure as that now exercised
at Pike's Peak or in Arizona. How was
this sjx ech received by the Democracy, es
pecially by the Democracy of Tennessee?
Let them answer for themselves. On the
Mh February following, the Democratic
members of the Legislature, representing
the entire Democracy ot the State, gave
that speech the following unequivocal in
dorsement: N ashville, Feb. 1S50.
Si "t: The undersigned, members of the
General Assembly of Tennessee, struck
with admiration of the magnanimity and
self-devotion manifested by you in throwing
yourself into the breach lor the safety and
welfare ot your couutry, canuot .withhold
some testimonial of our approbation of the
course you have pursued, and of our high
appreciation of your character and talents.
The present crisis in the affairs of the
nation demands the self-sacrifice of those
distinguished individuals in the Northern
State whose abilities and high position give
them influence to preserve the integrity of
the Union and the Constitution from viola
tion. Your late speech in the Senate of the
United States, on the Wilniot Proviso, is a
most triumphant vindication of the position
heretofore assumed by you, that Congress
has no power, under the Constitutiou, to
legislate upon or to meddle with the subject
of slavery, either in the States or Territories,
and is a complete defence of the rights of
the slavebolding States, and of the people
of all the States aud Territories, to form
and regulate their own social and municipal
This oration will stand a perpetual mon
ument in honor of your memory, and will
hand your name down to the latest posterity,

orator eloquent and powerful, as a statesman
sagacious and putriotic. -

Well might Gen. Cass exclaim, as he cid
afterwards in the Senate: -'The proudest and
most grateful testimonial I have ever re
ceived has recently reached me from the
Democratic members of the Legislature of
Tennessee. I shall treasure the recollection
of it through life." . And: "I want no better
endorsement than this of the correctness of
my Tiewa and the consistency with which I
have maintained them. It is full of compen
sation for all the attacks I have experienced
here or elsewhere." -
Mr. Cass maintained the same doctrine
in the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and went home
and justified bis support of that measure 6n

He Mr. Cass took the view attributed
tohim of the Nebraska-Kansas act, contend-in-',
as every reputable statesman and every
respectablejurist does, that slavery caj&

Kansas and Nebraska until permitted by the
legislatures of thoMs Tferritorica. This 13

Cass ha- tittered the same vietts on this
..;,, If- held them and had expressed
them when he was nominated for the Pfe-
idencyin and has upheld tneni scores
if not hundreds of times since. The Rich
mond " Enquirer" should know this. ;
'Gen. Cass's whole life has been m Keep

aud he is now enjoying one of the greatest
triumphs ever permitted, to a living gtates-
mau an almost uuiversal acquiescence in
the principles he first laid down in a great
eniergencv;"and upon no other principles, it
is clear, can the Union be preserved. :
'We will close this article by briefly stat
iug Gen. Cass's position, for tne benefit ot
the Richmond "Enquirer" and of everybody
else w ho is ignorant of it. - He maintains:
"That Congress has lib power to pass the
Wilmot Proviso. ' ' ' ' "'
'That Congress Jias no coBstitntional
power over slavery, either in the States or
Territories, except to provide for carrying
into execution the fugitive slave requisition.
"That the Territories are entitled to self
government in all respects not controlled by
"That slavery can only exist by virtue of
the law of the place.
"That there is no provision in the Consti
tution which carries slavery into any Teri -ritory
where it did not exist at the time of
'That it can only exist there by virtue of
law passed bv the Territorial government:
"All this Gen. Cass has steadily main
tained. And this right of self- government
from which these results flow has been nick
named by its opponents 'squatter sovereign
ly.' Let it be called what it may, it exists
in the principles and in. the hearts of the
American people.' - -
Cut to make short work' of the whole
matter, and to show that the entire demo .
cratic party, so far as its representatives
could commit it," was committed to this doc
trine, we subjoin the remarks of Hon. W. A.
Richardson-,' of Illinois, the democratic
candidate for the Speakership of Congress
in 1835-C, made in reply to certain interrog
atories propounded to him by Gen. Zolli-
coffer, of this city, onthe 12th January,
"Mr. Richardson. Iu reply to the first
ouestion of the gentleman from Tennessee,
Mr. Zollicoffer j I have to say that I voted
lor the bills organizing the Territories of
Nebraska and Kansas because I thought
them just to all, and I defended that vote
before my constituents upon that ground. I
intended then, and I intend now, that the
people who go there, or who have gone
there, shall decide the question of slavery
for themselves, and, so far as I could, admit
them as Stateswith or without slavery, as
the people should decide. , .In common with
Northern and Southern gentlemen, 1 have
said that, in my opinion, slavery would
never 20 there; but 1 have never, here or
elsewhere, urged that as a reason why I
voted for that bill. 1 voted lor the bill
because it was just, right and proper, and
wanted nothing more to uelend myself. 1
repeat here an argument I have made over
aud over again before my constituents, and
it is this: if a majority cf the people of Kan
sas or Nebraska are in favor of slavery,
they will have it; if a majority are opposed
to it, then they will not have it. This is the
practical result of every theory advocated
by the irieuds ot tne ebrasKa ana lvausas
bill. 1 gave my sanction to this principle
in supporting the Territorial bills of 18 jO,
and have uniformly supjiorted the same
principle since, whenever presented for my
aetion. aud shall continue to do so in all
'ituie cases that may arise. It is a principle
eVnmeRtshat"'tnefi'inr ftf ,al1 popular goy
or distinct community shall decide for
themselves the nature and character of the
institutious under which they shall live, and
by this principle I am prepared to live and
die. I therefore voted for the Nebraska
aud Kansas bill, neither as a pro-slavery
nor anti-slavery measure, but as a measure
of equal right and justice to the people of
all sections of our common country.
"The Constitution, does not, in my
opinion, carry the institutions of any of the
States into the Territories: but it affords
the same protection there to the institutions
of one State as to another. The citizen of
Virginia is as much entitled, in the common
territory, to the protection of his property,
uuder the Constitution, as the citizen of
Illinois: but both are dependent upon the
legislation of the Territorial government tor
laws to protect their property, of whatever
kind it may be. Thus, it will be seen, that
though there may be upon this point a dif
ference theoretically involving questions
for judicial decision yet there is none,
practically, among the friends of non-intervention
by Congress, as the practical result
is to place the decision of the question in
the hands of those who are most deeply
interested in its solution, the people of the
Territory, who have made it their home,
and whose interests are most deeply in
volved in the character of the institutions
under which they are to live."

Richardson answered to the questions of

the Union parly, such high-toned gi-.:iemen
as'Gov.'Haims and Ihu lion. A. O. P. Nich

assertions, (tor both have made it in our
hearing), when every school boy ia the land
knows that Fred Douglass mid all the aboli

Slave Law, and do uot acq ui. see in tie Dred
Scott d'.'ci.-ivn, and wish to destroy the Union
rather than submit to the administration of
such laws. How infatuated m-n must be to
deal in such niiite assertions.
Mr. Nicholson spoke a Fhort time, directing
his efforts to unite the Democracy in Tennes
see inviiiug the attention of his parly to
the danger of losing the State that John
Bell is the old enemy of the parly; that by
long effort they defeated him. carried the
State, and have been for a long time enjoy
ing the fruits of their labors. Thus appeal
ing to the cupidity of his Douglas friends,
aud descending so fir ljelow the dignity of a
United States Senator as to appeal to the
'cohesive power of pu'dic plunder" as the

a statesman and not like au office-holder, he
ought to have told th?nt to forget party ties
rather than jeopardizj the Union. Men in

that the South would not stand it that he
would not staud it-that it would cause a

Bell unsound aud untrue to the South, and,,
lor another purpose,- to jr rv- him a worse

too much enlightened to be influenced by a

None of these gentlemen, in our judgment,
regard the success of Breckinridge aud Lane
as a probable thing, but this tour is to make
a desperate effort to keep this State for de
mocracy, with the offices and their emolu

cy, and they see the "hand-writing on the

the '-Peach-Pie.', So, even the ollicials are
stumping it to save the Slate. Cut even this
