the result has been a confirmatiotuor.my
first imipression,nd 'a convictioni that the
claim of right is without a shado'w or foun
dation. The qdestii, I must say, hias not
been fairly met. Those opposed .to the

questibn as if we denied the right of ppti

true isiues not as to the eriatenceof the
right. whichjis ackn ovedged by.a1 liut its
e.rtent and .imits, whi "'not.hut one:bt our
opponents hai so mueh Fas 'attempteil -o-as
certain. What they,have declined4ing, I
undertake to perferm.
There -nust be some point, all will gree
where the - right of potiton rnds: and
ihit 1f this body begins. Where I-that
pareu!,, have exa nined this -question..
-carefully,. and I assert boldly, wishbf:*e
least fear of.refuttion, that stretthod ret
the utmost, the- right cannot he *oxteided
beygd the -presentation of a pititiu at
whch point the rights of'this locm
nence. When apetition is pregented it is
betre the Senate. .It must then ,be ated
on. -Some disposition must bq4iiade of it
hefore the- Senate can procee4, the con
siderati6nof. any other subjec -,,rhis no
one will deny. With the act o' .the
t'enate its rights comne:We ' tseue
bya irect provision of the eointitution,
which clothes each IHouse wvith the' right of
regulatmggtr. own proceedings,.thiat is; to
dletermmne, by fixed rules, the d/dler and
form of its acion. .To extend the right of
petition heyond presentation, is clearly to
extenud it beyond that point, where the &'
tion of tihe Sena'fe coimmiences, anid ag nuch,
-is au manifest violation of it~s constitiibnal,
righits. Ilero then levtm'e tib 4nmisbe
tween the right of petition id' the righi of
the Senate to regulate the ,proceedings,
clearly fixed, and so perfeedly defmned as not
to adnrit of mistake, and I would add, of
conitrovbrsy, hid it not been questidned in
this disensdopin.
If what I have asserted required1 enfir
amation, ample might he found iti'pt7'ules
which. embody thu delibeate of~4h
(lovernment to.this dag. . Amn,fjen the
S~enate has presceribed that of its t ig
on the presentations. It is coi its thie
24thr Rule, *thich I ask the S tary to
readjiwith Mr. Jefferson's remtar refer
eafeeto it: . .. . r
"i3dfore any petition or mereorI' dres

ZI feel that r.aighhere terminaie l-ls.Z
Vussion I have showu conclusive1 that.4
the right of petitioi Cannot possibly e -
tendedabeyond presentation. At that point .'
i is met by the- ights of the Senate;rad -
it rollows a a ueeqssary constiuence, that
so far from' being bound. to .T.eeive these
petitions, so1r would -a rejfftion be fr ~

stitution. -ut
But on a question of sffeh ngnitude
I feel it to lie saty to remove every aifi 7
c'Ity ; and that- not -a shadow of doitn
may remain, I shall- nexi proceed to reply
to the objections our opponeuts hae made
to the grounds I have taken. -At the head
of these, it has beegii ored, again and -
again, that petitionei*. have i'rlglt' to hg
heard, and that not to -reeive petitions is
to refuse a heariig. *tisato le regretied
that, throughout -thisitseuisia those op.7
posed to'us have dealtin suc vague gene
ralities, and ventured -assertions wit so
little attention to facts. Why have they
not informed us, in the present instance,
what is meant by the right to be heard,
and how tint right i~c-violated by a refut
to receive I Had they thought proper to
e us this information, it would at least
. avO greatly facilitated my reply; but as it
is, I am constramied to inquire into the iif-.
ferent senses in which the assertion may bo
taken, and then to show that in not on of
then is the fight of petition in-the slight,
est degree, iniinged a reffi-n to receive.
What then is icant by the assertion
4MAP I ifflet Miley have a right
toc i tile npato Chiamber in perso
Ti 4tsence., lf'Pthisbe thep meaning.. . "4
the lidlest apprehensioi imist see that-ti --
question on receivin , has hot the slightest
-bturing on -such rig t. If the'y' finvetho
right to h6 heard persbhally at our bar, it is
not the 24th rule of our proceedings, but
the 1Otf, which. violates that right That
rule expressly provides that a motion to
admit mflhperson'whatever within th doors A
of the Senate to. present a petitio, shall.
,opt of orderiand of edurse, eelhdes the
tioneirs ifrom being heard in person.
B" it may be meant that petitioners hlavo
a .r'ghttohave their petitions prdsented to.
the Senate, and rend in their hearing. , It'
this-he the meaning, the right has been ,I].
joyed in the present instance to the fullest
extent. The ptition was presented by the
Senator from-Pennsylvania (Mr. Buchanan)
4n -the; usual mOde, by giving a stat-h.ent of
its co, tents, and on my call was read by the
Secretary- at his table.
Blut one more sense-ean be attached to
the assertion. It may be meant int the
petitioners have a -ight to have their peti
tions discussed by the Settatt. If this ho
intended, I will veuturo-to say thatthero
never was wn -assertion more diretly in the -
teeth of- facts than that which has.been so
fgequently made in the course of this dis
cussion-that to refuse to receive the peti
tion is to refuse a heariii; to the petitioners.
H1amnot this question heen before us for
months ? hias not the petition been discus
sed clay after day. fully and-'freely, ini all
its bearings'' And how, with these facts
beefore us, with the debates still ringi: n
our dhis, any Senator can rise in -his pib
and gravely ploniounce that to refus to
receive this petition is to refuse. a hearing
to 'lie petitioners-to refuse discussion, ini
the broadest senseC, is pas*my comprehen
stod.. Our opponents, as if. in their cager
iisistporumsrih~e-iho rikh~ts of the Sen
ate, anud to enlarge those of' the abolitionist
(for suceh muast be the eff'ect of their cm: r - -
have closed their senges aegainst facts p
ing before their eyes; and have entirely -4
overlo*iked the nature of the question now
before the Senatte, and wvhich they have been
so long~ disenssing.
'Tli question on receiv'ing the petition,
not qsly admits the discussion, biut ndmits
'it in the most-ample mian'lkr ;more so, in
fiact, than any other except the final ques
tio on the rejection of' the prayer of' the pe
tiuion,or some tantamount question. What
ever may go to show that the petition is or'
is not deserving the actiona of this body,
has been doine on the present oeension.- -
In this~respect there is a striking difference
between it and niany of the subsequent.
qutestions-whieh may he raised aifter recep.
tion, and articularly the one nmade bv~bi,
Senator from Tennessee, .(ilr. Grundy.)
wvho now is so striuus an advocate ini
favor of the right of the petitioners to l'c.
heard. ie spoke witifgreat apparent conk
placencyof his eirse, as it respiects anoth
o r. of those petitions. And what was thise
course ? lie who is niow so eager for dis''
eiission) to give a hearing, moved to lay the.
pet t~he table-a motion which buta -
off seumsion..
