First, wo have jrot what I call, and what I know

men are endowed bv their Creator with cottain nut-
ural, inalicnablo rights, who.-ein they are rqual--!
tlio right ot lite, liberty, nnd the pui-.-uit ol liappi
nesn." That I call the 1-le l of fieodoin. It lend
to democracy. It had its culininating point, in
time '70 in spice, its culminating point, of old
days, was hero in Faneuil Hall. Far up tbo.i

That is the l.'.cn of slavery, which ban its culnn-
mitlog point, in space, in tlie tiiy ot nsliii.gton
iu lime, in me year i.-nj i. .miw, inesu two ii.rccss
nre nntngoinstie, deadly hestdo. luey nre here in
the midst of thin people, nnd nre running theirraee
togcthor. Can Iheso two wink harinniiiottsly to-1
gethcr? Surely they cannot. The idea of frcu -
Uoni ana tlio idea ol slavery cannot stand upon tl;e
same platform, nor live together in the same conn-,
try. Accordingly, ever since the establishment ol
this Government, thoro has been n hostility between
the two. Seo what tho result has been. Twice
ineo tho adoption of tho Federal Coietitutioii
yen, twice since tho Declaration of Indet.cndencc
tho idea of freedom in (he Federal C.'miicils has
tho idea of freedom in (he Federal Council has
prevailed against slavery. One w as in 1 7 w hci.
it wns decreed that freedom should bo perpetual in
tho region culled the Northwest lernlory; that
idavery should never he there, nor in the Stntesj
thence mado, s.ivo as a legal punishment for crime,
That was tho ono step. The other win in ItStW
slave trade tho foreign, alas! nnd not the
domestic was annihilated, and us our fathers sup-i
posed, forever. Thoso wero two triumphs for the
Iiriiiciplcsof freedom ovor the principle of sluvjry
nit since that, tho power of slavery has been con-j
tautly advancing, and it has continually ti-iuinph-i
with the Drinciido of freedom, nnd nino time has
tlio principle ol freedom withdrawn ami slavery
occupied tho field triumphant, and planted it han-
ncr there. First, in IT.-sri, it inaugurated shivery
nito tho Constitution of iho United Slates. Thai
point was the lust. Jvo.xt, in 17U2, Kentucky was
admitted an a ihivo St.ito. Shiiory wns then put
by Federal Legislation in thin country into noil noli
embraced within any ono of the old Thirteen
States. That was tho next sten. Tho third sten
1 the yoar after, and that wa the tirst FugitivoJ
Mavo hill, tho celehrntod law of lSUd, wherein
Conirres adonted slavery, and i-ohinteered.eonti'arv
to the spirit and letter of tho Constitution, to ki.t
nap uiou on free soil who had escaped from tho do
minion of their inhuman master. That waa the
third step. The fourth was the purchase of Louis
iana in 1803, slave soil with shivery oil it, and tho
ercctiun, in In 12, of tho slnvo Sluto of Louisiana.
Thnt was tho fourth step. Tho fifth step was the
carryiii(rof shivery westof tho Mississippi, and in
ugu ruling shivery into the Cunstitntiou of tho
new ntuto ol .Missouri. Iho sixth step was taken
mi me piirenuso 01 1 lori.ia, nnd croeting Unit prov-1

it it that the idea of freedom ht receded and re

that God' higher law is less powerful than the low

is. The South love slavery and is faithful to the
Ide on which that wickedest of uiodorn iuytitn

tho idea which built this Cradle of Liberty. Not
