SENATR0SA SUMNEE AND BUTLFR
The following is that portion of Senator
Sumner's speech relating to Senator Butler
which provoked the attack upon him by 34r.
Bro:ks, who is a relative of our respected
" Bit, before entering upon the argument. I
must say something of a general character,
particularly in response to what has fallen from
Senators who raised themselves to eminence on
this floor in championship of human wrongs; I
mean the Senator from South Carolina, (Mr.
Butler,) and the Senator from Illinois, (Mr.
Douglas,) who, though unlike as Don Quixote
and Sancho Panza, yet, like this couple, sally
forth together in the same cause. The Sen:;
tor from South Carolina tins read many books
of chivalry, and believes himself a chivalrous
knight, with sentiments of honor and courage.
Of course he has chosen a mistress to whom he
has made his vows, and who, though ugly tq
others, is always lovely to him ; though pollutied
In the sight of the world, is chaste in her sight
-I mean the harlot, Slavery. For her, his
tongue is always profuse in words. Let her be
mpenched in character, or any proposition made
to shut her out from the extension of her wan
tonnesa, and no extravagance of manner or
hardihood of assertion is then too great for this
Senator. The frenzy of Don Quixote, in be.
half of his wench Dtlcinea del Toboso, is all
surpassed. The asserted rights of - Slavery,
which shock equality of all kinds, are cloaked
by a fantastic claim-equality. If the Slave
States cannot enjoy what, in mockery of the
great fathers of the Republic, he misnames
-equality under the Constitution-in other words,
the full power in the National Territories to
compel fellow-men to unpaid toil, to separate
husband and wife, and to tell little children :t
the auction block, then, sir, the chivalric Senator
will conduct the blate of South Carolina out of
the Union! Heroie Knight! Exalted Senator!
A second Moses come for a seccnd Exodus.
But not content with this poor menace, which
we have been twice told was " measured," the
Senator, in the unrestrained chivalry of his na
ture, bas undertaken to apply opprobrious words
to those who differ from him on this floor. le
calls them "sectional and fanatical ;" and oppo.
aition to the usurpation in Kansas, he denounces
na " an uncalculating fanaticism." To be sure,
these charges lack all grace of orig;nality, and
,all sentiment of truth; but the adventurous
Ssnator does not hesitate. He is the uncom
promising, unblushing representative on thtis
iloor of a fingrant sectionalism, which now d(omi-.
nteers over the Republic, and yet with a ludicrous
jgntoratnce of his own position-unable to see
imself as others see him-or with an effrontery
which even his white head ought not to protect
from rebuke, he applies to those here who resist
hils sectionalism the very epithet which desig
uatks himself. The men who strive to bring
back thie Government to its original policy, when
Freedom and not Slavery was national, he ar
raigns as sectional. This will not do. It in
volves too great a perversion of terma. I tell
that Senator, that it is to himself, and to the
"organization" of wvhich lie is the "committed
Advocate," that this epithet belongs. 1 1.ow
fasten it upon them. For myself, I eatre little
for names. but since the question has b'een raised
hecre, I sffirm that the Republican party of the'
UJnion is in no just sense sectional, but, more
than any other party, national; and that it now
goes forth to dislodge from the high places of
the Government the tyrannical sectionialium of
which the Senator from South Carolitna is one
&.f the maddest zealots.
In the charge of fanaticism f also reply. Sir,
fanaticism is found in an enthusiasm or exag
geration of opinions partieularly on religious
subjercts; but there may ben a fanaticism for
Evil as well as for good. Now, I will not deny,
,that there are persons :among us loving liberiy
coo well for their personal good, in a selfish
generation. Such theTe may be, and, for the
sake of their example, would that there were
mores In calling them " fanatics" you cadt con

Yes, sir, of such are the fanatics of history,
according to the Senator. But I tell that Sena
4o?, that there are charaeters badly eminent, of
whose fanaticism there can be no qntestion.
.Nuech were the ancient Egyptians, who worship
pued divinities in brutish forms; the Druids, who'

cotton-stalks that will do to brag on. They are from
8 to 22 inches in height and abouand in squares. rThey
were selected from the best part of one of Mr. Bates,

has the reputation of being the fullest-hearing cotton
known. The objection to it is, that It is diflicult to

A very neat pamphlet thus designastesd has just been
issued from the " Carolinaian" Oflice (Colsumbia.) It is
matter of regret that it was not arrantg-d to give each
member of the Convetntiun a larger number of copies.
It is a recoard which manay in Sssuth Carolina wotuld
