Toott on Secession, j
Oil the 28th of Jauuary, 1B5C, Senator I
Foote used the following language iu the j
Senate of die United States. What bat
caused such a chimge in him? Then he
believed iu the 'right of secesion. Now
he oppoxet and denounce it, and every body
that advocate it. He made the remark
in consequence of tin amendment offered to
a bill by Seward respecting fugitive elave:
" Sir, it doe seem to ine, that no one who
has listened to the calm, dignified, ami truly
national argument of the honorable Sena
tor from Virginia, (Mr. Mason.) this iloy
pronounced in our hearing, and who duly
appreciated the sound aud statesmanlike
vieivt maintained by him, can even hear
I be amendment of the honorable Senator
from New York tend, without being talis
tied that this ametidinoct was designed to
cap ilia climax of Southern wrongs, to
cause ilia cup of our oppression at once to
overflow, an I to force us of the South,
whose lot it is to be the owner of slave
proerty, to tcccde, from the Union, or, re
mninmg in it, to submit to a wanton,
hmrtlait and insulting deprivation nf all
our cnnstittitionutights, sut h as no free
p'op'e have ever bfcnknoicn to emlnre."

poser, generally. A the canvass proceed- i
ed, he became more personal I had, upon
several orcaeioiis, alluded to the arbitrary joyment with a view to spend the sum
and alarniuiK power asserted by the pre-! . . . ; .p. i
sent Adiuiiiiniratiou I instanced the threat
of President Fillmore, to use the military
force of the United Slates against Texas ;
and I cited the indignity lately offered to
Mississippi in urging the arrest and remo
val of the Gavernor of the State to New
Orleans for trial, on a groundless charge,
thus virtually suspending the Executive
towers of the State Government.
Iu the debate at Panola, Gen. Foote in
answer to this point of my argument, de.
fended the conduct of the President, and
although he disavowed the intention ol im
puting to me any guiit, yet he intimated
that there was cause for suspicion in the
LaHedTed fact that some arms belouging to
Ihe State of Mississippi had been carried
off to be used iu the Cuban expedition.
Iu my reply I said that the charge or in
sinuation, coming from whatever source it
might, that I had either been instrumental
iu, ?.r coguizaut of the removal or abstrac
tion of any tu0 public arm from the
Slate, wasait' taviaaious,
With this I stionoacu further i
the subject would end ; but the next
day, at Sledgeville. Seuator FootiJ "JS the
same qualified manner repealed the insinua
tion. Determined to repel, iu a manner
which could not be misunderstood, such
indirect assault upon my character, iu my
rejoiuder I deliberately proiiounced the in
sinuation as false and cowardly, scanda
lous and ungenllemanly. Upon some in
quiries by him of what I meant I repeated
the same language. He then inquired
whether I intended to insult him. I said I
would answer that question outside of the
Standing upon the ground with a table
and my papers before me, 1 llfeu turned to
the aotiieuce and was proceeding to say,
that under the. circumstances, I believed
further joint debate between us would be
iujiiiious lo public morals, and therefore I
declared our joint appointments terminated
from that day. While thus speakiiig, I
was several times interrupted by Senator
Foote, and at length I heard his voice near
me ou my right exclaim you are a liar, and
turning towards bun, 1 saw him advancing
aud aiming a blow at ine, which "slightly
grazed my person, Before 1 could turn up
ou him, be quickly glidod back out of the
reach of my arm, and as I spraug towards
him a uumber ofgeullemeu rushed in and
protected him from merited chastisemeut,
but uot until I had dealt him a blow with
my list and oue with my foot, the force of
both weakened by the effort of persons
present, to hold me back. This scene oc
curred in the presence of a large and res
pectable audience of ladies and gentlemen.
While I feel mortified in having been
even an unwilling participator in a scene
so disreputable to a public canvass, for a
high and dignified office, I feel assured that
I will be justified by an intelligent public
in having used the . strongest language to
repel an insiduous attack upon my charac
