At the celebration of the 4lh ol July '

was the orator, and ftc two hours held the
audience with words of burnio;; e!' i-eoce
and unswerable logic. e t;ive a lew ex
tracts from his speech :
THE (jCfsllO.V tOK euLt'TION.
Tbe question for solution is, what is lae sentiTe
efsreefeion? Vfby should South Oaroliaa or any
ether State desire a separate are! independent po
sition imaco the nations of the worlw ? As it
cannot be successfully denied that slavery is the
one sole cause of secession, it mstt needs bo that
the motive springs from the same soexree: and it
is found not in wrongs, actual or apprehended,
not in fears, real or feigned, cot in injustioe tuf
fered or justice denied, but in the social separa
tion of an aristjeratk from a demoeratao people
the supercilions exclusion o! a people among
whom labor is honorable and universal, from so
cial equality and contact with a pecple among
whom labor belongs to a subject and menial race
the haughty withdrawal of the "peeoliar in
stilution" to itself, that it may be "let alone" to
reet upon the raviahed domain of the Union, and
mat afterwards added by farced purchase or mar
aadtng conquest, a gigesti- eanpire of slavery
It is a war in which there oan be no compromise.
Compromise with rebellion is capitulation to it.
Count him a traiter who oouoeels ooea prom tea !
u o hare no coraprstcire to make. We fixht, not
from ehoiee, but beoanso tay foioed arms into
onr reluctant sands, and we shall not cease fight
ing till all ams are forced out of lhair parricidal
hands. e ght for the Union and the constitu
tion; anlif by unmanly oompromi-e and any
Compromise woald be unmanly we suffer the ( ne
to be dismembered or the ether overthrown,, in
ever so small u decree, what a hiss of Morn would
rise from the whole world at the twenty million;
(hat truckled to live millions ! Bat let it be un.
derstood tbatwe do not fiiht for "the Ci.ioo as it
was," if my understanding of that umoh used
phrste is correct If it moans aa I believe it
does with those who so trippingly use it the Un
ion dominated by slavery, then we Sght for no anch
Union, nor can such ever again exist. We fight
for the primal Union, the true Union, the Union
that was before King Cotton raised his iron scep
tre, an. before aa arrogant aristocracy lorded it
over as; when, however we might differ on ques
tions of rx Iict, all were intent on he good ot the
whole country, and all willingly bowed to the
voi:e of the majority. Tor that Union wo nhl ,
and no other will cmer?e from tins oontest. Iho
war for this is one wbcee end we jannot now see, j
but we mu-t seo it out to its end. Ids vain to
cry, as many do, "Peace ! reaee ' oh, let us have
peace !' There can be, cught to be, mnat be, no
peace, but that which follows unconditional sub
mission to the constitution over the whole land.
Any ctver would be but the begmning of war
When a merciful Ood grants us peace, let it not
be bjecl on the recognition of a piratical cti led
eraey, but upon its annihilition. then only will
it eodure. And. my friends, it is emphatically a
war of asbjagatioa. One aide er the other mast
be eabjagalcd. There is no middle ground, whera
the combatants may lay down tfteir arms, retire
from the contest aad leave things as thev were.
The conatjtatloo must subjagat the kinsr, or the
ling lb Cottsutntioa. Both cannot be .-unreal

Bst it is not a war against slaver?, though
slavery is warring against the Union f call you to

a war meeting in Indianapolis.the other 'lay
Geft Uumonrfrecently rrem Nashville, made
a sie4ble eneejoh on the necro question. lie
"In the South every man has gone to t le
war. Tbe oooscription tikes everybody, and
yet it takes nobody at all. In the eye of the
Almighty, nobody is worth as much as a
red-headed woodpecker unless be works
So recruits who enter the southern army
go there with sun embrowned foreheads and
hands hardened by honest industry. Tbe
demand for troops takes away a set ot pam
pered men very good men lor the purpose
men who are a sort of walking tirstnal, not
devoid of courage or talent ; but it takes
away nobody from tbe producing clases in
other words, it takes away n-' tdy at all.
Take tbe three congressional mstricts lying
immediately around Nashville. Go amorg
the peopie there and you will find that at
nearly every house you come to the lady is a
widow, and she seeks protection lor herself
and her property, by repeated declarations
tbat she ia a lone widow, left with a large
number of negroes to look after. But when
you come to investigate the matter a little
more closely, you will find, almost without
exception, that tbe negroes belong to men
who ar.- in the field with the gnu upon their
should -is and the knapsack upun the.r backs;
men who, lorgetlul ol their roost sacred amy
to tbeir country, have taken up arms against
the best government the sun ev-r a'.o-ie up
on. Well, why can thoe men o to war
while to 1 cannot? Simply hvao-e they
have the negroes at home to work for th'm,
and you have nothing to do-tend upon but
your own honest industry. Besides, when
aa is most generally the case, the wife h-r-self
is the better man ot the two, the j roperty
is as well taken cire ol in the absence ot the
husband as when be isatboincaod thus these
men can go into ths army and stay there un
til the last star falls Irom H-avcn. and their
wives and children be none the w u-sv off by
it. Within the territory I have mi ntione-J
there are UHI.UOO slaves, toiling day after
day, cheerfully and uncomplainingly, lor
the support of their mast.rs, woo ar - in the
rebel army Niw. su-tpwe you give notice
to all mankind, and the human I .rally in
particular, that every man who shall fail to
return to hi-t tillegianee within a given time,

give suitable cuamnto-s lor bis g v J beba

!' jn't you aupxie there would be
a terrible skedaddling ammg tht it- men
about that tim '.' They would soon learn by
a mysterious intimation ot Divine Providence
that they had got tbeir rights alr.ady, and
that the bait t.ung they cjuld dj was to go
home and enjoy them 1 happ-ned to meet
one day in the road near Nashville, a young
man whose appearance was wretched and
sorrowful enough. I saw by bis clothing
that h had been in the army, and I said to
him. My friend, where sre you ging to?'
Said be, ' 1 am going back to old Kentnck . '
Where have you been, and what have you
been doing ?' " His reply was, ' I was a sol
dier in tiie s oesh army.' Well.' Slid I,
' how long did it take you to get your rights
after you gut there?' O.' laid he. ' I had
them before I started, but 1 didn't know it.'
Oh, yes ' it would be but a viry little while
after such a proclamation at that should lc
made public, unlit all these m.'n would go
home. And 1 wish to Gjd they would go
home tor one reason particularly, il no
other. The ladies who are at ho. a; art just
as zealous and bitter now as their hus-sxnds
were when tbey left for the war. They
imagine their husbands are just what they
were wh-.n they left home , they do not
know what a terrible falling ufl these has
been in their devotion to the cause, and when
their husbands do cotnehome they will bard.
Iy know them. Liughter. I have bad
hundreds of them eome to me after having
been in the rebel army, and beg ti take the
oath of allegiance, stying tbat they had
lieen deoeived, and ' Oh,' tbey would say,
what a terrible wild goose ohtse is that we
have been led since we w.-re induced to jo n
in tbr,rebelli n.'
Well, say you, would you take these ne
groe into tho atmy ? Would nut tbat be
like winning the elephant ? In regard to
what I would do personally, I would just
say tbat I chanced to capture eleven good
looking negroes in the little fight at Leoa
don, and I have just been standing still to
see the salvation of the Lord in the promise.
1 do not much want to see them in the army.
I want to hit the enemy as hard a lick as

do it than the way 1 have already in-licttej
