SKETCH OF WENDELL PHILLIPS'S
On Tuesday evening, Feb. 2fl, Wr.xDEM. Putmra
dolivered an nblo nnd elo(iient nddrcss on the sub
ject of American Slavory, nt tho Broadway Taber
nacle, in tho preseneo ol 11 largo nnd highly respee
tnblo audience S largo wns tho crowd thnt
benches had to bo placed in tho a'ndc.1 for the pur
poso of accommodating numerous persons. At'the
appointed hour tho lecturer mndo his nppenrance,
and whon tho Ion I aeclainations of applause which
5 reeled him had subsided, spoke ns follows. Ln
ios and Uentloman I nm hero to-night to ad
dress you upon the subject of Slnvery, nnd it is
somewhat my mUfiirtutio that I nm to address you
upon a subject upon wliieli many of you have lis
tened nmv to eleven nddresss from some of tho
tnost nblo, nnd some of them the most popular,
men in the community, nnd of course it w ill be
almost impossible, that I shall not trend over some
of tho ground which they havo covered, I hardly
hope that I shall be able to avoid offending the
prejudices of many that have dnnn mo tho honor
to come to-night to hear inc. I belong to tho most
radical wing of tho Anti-Slavery party. I am con
scious th.it our views upon this great 'national sub
ject meet with pjreat repugnanco from nil classes
of our fellow-citizens ; nud in listening to me, all
I ask is, that you shall remember that I am nn
American ns well as you that I havo tho same
share that you have in the honor and ultimate fato
of our country that all that I have dear in the
world is horo nnd that my associations with tho
past aro the same, as yours. My prido iu tho great
names of tho country is exactly liko yours. My
hopes for the future arc bound up with tho fate of
these Republican Institutions which cur fathers
gavo ns ; nnd believe mej I can havo no motive,
hidd n.so :rol or undcrhnnd.oithcr .vgainst tho civil
or tho religious institutions of our common country,
against its good name, its present or its future
prosperity. We nro nil in tho sniiio bark. We
aro to tloat or to sink together; nud the great na
tional issue that calls us together to-night demands
ot us all, ns tho sonsot those honored lathers, w ho,
through great peril nnd nt tho cost of great mcri
fi:o, in ltd red for in the institutions of tlio country
the prosont issuo demands of us that nil, witfi
mutual counsel and mutual conlidence, shall grap
ple with tho question which threatens to shipwreck
the experiment of self-government iu theso t'nitcd
State". It is no personal ambition, no sectional
or S'sllish feeling, no personal piquo, no hnlre I o(
individuals, no wrath against partios, no Viddcn
hostility to fcoctu, that can muko any honest man
Open his lips ujun tlio subject of Slavory. It is
tho mighty and solemn ond to waive nit such con
siderations nnd smother them in the uiomentous
issuo which is presented to every lover either nf
bis country or his raco. Now, plonso do 1110 the
justice that however I may deal with names and
institutions that nro dear to you, I nm exercising
only tho dear-bought right nnd tho most valuable
which our Cithers left us the right to think nnd
apeak. Oilier mcu may pan with it when nud ns
they plu.iso, from considerations of delicacy to
great men to great ptrties to great acts to
fiarchmcnti nud to institutions ; but my fathers
eft me tho right to speak, nnd I will barter it for
nothing (cheer ). Kvcry ulliniato good bangs
upou tho assertion of the right, nnd before its as
sertion for a good purpose, on ncauso vvido enough
to challenge its exercise, all considerations of per
sonal delicacy, and all considerations of the value
of great panics and institutions, nre nothing. "Liv
ing, I sh ill ns-ei t it," ns our great Now Kuglnnder
sari ; "and dying, I shall n.jcrt it" ; nnd, whether
unions or parties nro subverted or perish, 1 mean
to keep freo lips until they nro dust (loud cheers).
I..iJilm and gentlemen, wo havo assembled to
thiuk of Slavery, Now, tho problem of Slavery is
a Tory singular 0110 in tho present nspect of our
country, in rohit'on to tho world. Bear with me
mouiunt, while I go a Tom tho waters, ami look
at tho condition of classus nnd political institutions
there. I will not kocp you long away f.-om homo.
Hut let 1110 remind you simply that, for tho last
Seventy years, under tho Ciuvcrnmonts of Kurope,
which wo nre ncoiistomod to consider as rottoo,
despotic, ariotooratio and partial, Chattel Slavory
has disappu.tro 1, with two exceptions, Itusia still
maintains the system of Slavery, though her Kin
peror is said to bo laboring to abolish it ! and
Spain, rotten and incompetent ns she is, is still the
victim nnd the tool of tho slaveholders of her Colo
nies, lint with these two exceptions, England,
France, Denmark, Sweden, and nil tho countries
of Kurope nnd I might throw Algiers in the
bargain hate got rid of Chattel Slavory, They
still retain their nrintocratio institutions; not one
man in ten can vote ; tho press is not free rcli
' gion is not freely tolerated, nud there is no Democ
racy j Still, Chattel Slavery has disappeared. It
is tlie tendency of the Nineteenth Century, judged
. by nil Christendom (cheers). This is tho great
current of the ngo it tends to breaking tho shackle.
The West Indies, whether owned by England or
Franco, Denmark or what not, nre all free wher
ever their laws go. England may proudly boast
that, whether upon her African Colonies or her
West India or bast India possessions, wherever
lior flag Boats, it melts the shackle (cheers). Now,
1 wnnt you to bear that picture in mind, nnd then
come homo with 1110. Let us paint ourselves.
For seventy years we to a havo had a Constitution,
n4 a Oovcrnment which we bnnstis the freest and
most ntrfcrt in the world. Well lias it proved
. itself so in cerinin great respects. It bus advanced
Domoerutio ideas.. Uur constant tendency lias
. been to the eUTvatinu of the mosses, and to trust
the people more and more. Our whole tendency
ihus been to raise up the masses, to abolish everv
barrier, and to break down every shadow of any-
tuupg mat sceemeii 10 say we oininot trust man
with himself. There is one exception to this pic-
, ture, ana oniy one near 111 111 in 11 the current
- abroad bear iu mind the general current nt home
. There is only one exception, and that is (slavery.
Vt toach everybody; we let everybody vote;
wo tolerate everybody's religion; we cjiooso our
judges 1 and in every other ruspect whito men
cannot be trusted too much, felavery, iostoad
of growing weaker, is growing stronger. In
1 stead of growing narrower, it is broader. In
stead of growing lesij numerous, it is qnudru
' pie. Instead of growing more modest, it is mora
' bold-faced than ever. Instead of bavins 700,000
slaves, we have over three million, lustead of
having a qualified pro-slavery (iuntiment, we have
, a furious and reiuorsoluss one. , Instead of having
a small corner of the country practically wedded
to Slavery, she stretchos her hands over half of our
-'dominion, and strides into t'-ongross and demands
that tlio wholo policy of the Oovcrnment should be
ogulatcd to strengthen, to extend nud to pcrpolu
ite her. Compnro the totio of public oiitiion in
I7t'j with that of tho present day. Take, for in
stance, Oonrgo Washington. When bis dure es
caped to Now Hampshire, he said thnt bo did not
wish her to be reclaimed, if such reclamation would
excite tho indignation or the high feeling of the
eniutiiunilT of New Hampshire (eheersY. Now.
where did thnt mnn come from who stood npon the!
iu(.ui mo iiuvcre iiousc, at nosion, wiinni ino

to smother her preiudices? Why.be cvmo from
nno of those New Hampshire eottnges whose nro-

Wns this the tone of tho devolution ? Hero is n
comparison between two distant epochs the epoch ,
ol aslnngton nnd tho epoch nf Webster. 1 have
not takon common men but lending men.
Let mo tiiko another instance. We have bad a
great man come among us nt least so they say
from tho tyranny of tho Old World. Ho came to
us from Australia, nnd had labored for liberty.
When u man outers the proseneo of a sovereign
prince in tho East, the first thing ho docs is to lay
his presents upon bis footstool, nnd so, when a mnn
comes into tho presence of a great nation, ho usu
ally lnys upon its footstool a present of tho most
acceptable expression that he can inako of his
sentiments ond his respect. Ho endeavors to
shape his ideas to please what bo mny consider
tho character of tho peoplo nmong whom ho comes.
Well, I blush to say that the great man to whom I
allude, follow ing tho course of all the other great
men who havo recently visited this country the
very first thing bo does is to inako known to the
Democratic pnrty thnt he has nn prejudice ngninst
Slavery on the wliolo he would like' to be a slave
holder. All the other great mon who visited us,
with this exception, hnvo kept silcnco upon the
siihje-.'t of Slavery. That was the compliment that
Kossuth paid usi for ho said nothing nboiit it.
What is tho compliment that Mitehel pays us?
"Why," says be, "great American people, know
you all by thoso presents, thnt so far from having
any nnrrow-minded ideas nvcrso to the despotic in
stitution of Slavery, I should liko (o bo n slave
holder myself" (cheers). Never mention a baiter
in tho proseneo of a mun whose brother was linnir-
C'l icneers ami laughter). 1 his is a scotch prov-
eru. i ever touch upon a suliicct that voti think
a sensitive and guilty sinner cannot bear (applause)
What a compliment these foreigners pny us. What
a glass it is in w hich we see ourselves. The very
readiest wny in which a foreigner . thinks bo can
gain the good opinion of the American pooplo is to
put bis band upon his mouth, and bis mouth in
the dust, and make obeisance to tho Slato Power.
Surely, abroad, w hothor rightfully or w rongfully,
they think wo are a Slavery-loving pooplo. John
Mitehel, n patriot ami a Protestant, t onics lo this
country, In loJ, nud mnkes himself agreeable to
tho American -tioople by professing bis willingness
to nceonio a siavuhoider (applause).

Well, again At the time of tlio Revolution, there
was nn old Dr. Spring, whowas a Congrcgnlionn
and nn orthodox clergymen in nn old, leading, nnd
rich Church, at New burvnort. AVell. bis nruver
every Sunday wns, "Oil Lord, overturn, overturn,
overturn, and overturn, until! ho whoso right it is
shall reign;" nnd tho old divine cured not whether
Despotism be duinestiu or foreign, but bo prayed,
Sunday after Sunday, thnt the Lord would do what
was right in the premises. Well, there is a Dr. Spring
preaching now (loud npplnuse nnd laughter). And
no ministers to a rich, rcspectablo, and populous
Church, I nm told, in one of tho great cities of this
Union, and ho daro not pray to tho Lord to over
turn anything, for fear that ho should, by some
turn anything, lor lenr Unit ho should, by some

I want to ask what has produced tliisdotoriomtion.
tiy nnv we gune liack 7 N by has this question
alono been an exception to tho whole tendency of
the age? Allow me to come briefly to tho answer
of the quostion, as time passes. The answer which
lie radical uurrisoman Abolitionists make is this :
U is tho Compromise the ooustaat spirit of Cuin
promist) with which this quiistiua bus been dealt
with by Church and State, and by Individuals and
parties, on all occasions. It is simply because,
uulike all other questions, the Amoriuaus have
never beep willing to walk upon this in a strait
line, and to let their arguments and their logic
lead thein to a result and adopt it. Upon every
j other question, and wcvery other respect, ye take

Mr. Cboate thought it wns right to Inlcrfore with
luVery in Culm, nnd not in Caroliua, and 4,000
merchants applauded his remarks. George Thuinp
not Blin from England, attempted to interfere with
slavery in this country. Tho Press condemned

Douglas's bill, ns amended before it got through
the Senate, does all that it can, directly, to exclude
free lultorers, by shutting out aliens from all par
ticinution in tho government. Nothing could be
more clearly apparent, than tho determination of
tho South to secure this great section of country to
tho dominion of Slavery.
It is gratifying to seo that tho citions of this

Irish, there is reason to believe, genorally take the
same view of it. To the Gormuiis nud Irish, con-
sequontly, it is hardly likely that any public mnn
who identities himself with Douglas's bill, need
ever look for future support. They will not feel
particularly friendly to the slavery propagandists
who have sought tu excludo them from tlio laud to

pect, after all, that the political capital which Sen
ator Douglas mnkes nut of his bill will be capital
against him, and not in his favor. But it will not
be the first time that those who pave trusted to the
devils promises hnve had to whlstia fur their par.
