REMAKES OF MR MOORE.
bill No 35U, b Mr. 8baw a bill to prevent
glelog aid tu fugitive slaves Mr. Moore said:
Mr , SraaB4nXM bill nuder eoneidoratlon Is
designed to aid In the execution of tbe lugitiv
lave law, and proposes to punish by Imprison
ment In the penitentiary, for a term of not more
than three years nor lata than one year, any
person who kuoaingly shall aid or assist a fugi
tive in escaping from hi master. Although
not entirely satisfied with eome of its provis
ions, yet believing, as I do, that so long as we
consent to live in a confederacy of States nnited
onder a common constitution, that it ia not only
the duty of every citiien to comply with tbe de
mands of that constitution, bat likewise to yield
obodienoe to all enactment oi tbe general gov
ernment for the purpose of carrying ont In good
faith all its provisions, I am willing to vote for
this bill. Were we living onder a different con
stitution, one not recognizing slavery nor guar
anteeing to the citizens of the aiaveholdlog
States their right of property in slave, I should
not support it, for I, in common with my Dent
ooratio brethren of tbe North, am opposed to
slavery, at is demonstrated in our framing and
supporting the free constitutions and laws under
which we live. But tbe elaveholdiog States on
ly consented to a onion under this guarantee,
and now to repudiate it would be a breach of
implied faith, no lea criminal than the holding
of slaves. It was an Institution that existed in
all tbe colonies, and at the adoption of the con
stitution in twelve of th thirteen States. It
was one for which the colonies themselves were
not entirely responsible. It had been forced
upon them by the mother country, and constitu
ted one of the griev ances complained of in the
Declaration of Independence. .
In a confederacy composed of freo and slave
States, it was obvious Ibis kind of property
would not be secure without a positive guarantee,
and the framers of tbe cooetiiutioo, to insure it
for all time, engrafted In that instrument tbe
following clause: "No person held to eervice
or labor in one State, under the laws thereof,
escaping into another, shall, in consequence of
any law or regulation therein, be discharged
Irom such service or labor', bnt shall be deliver
ed upon claim of tbe party to whom such service
or labor may be due.' This clause constituted
one ot tbe compromise of the constitution, and
without it or some similar provision, there
could have been no onion; and as the right of
property In slaves waa tboa on oi the corner
atones in tbe foundation of thl Government, It
is obvioua th whole structure must totter and
fall by Its removal. But as it required a law
the mora perfectly to carry out thla provision
and reduce the principle to practice, during
Washington' administration, in 1793, a law was
passed known as the fugitive slave law of that
date). This law, although net entirely satisfactory
to the whole people, waa nevertheless " lived up
to for over nail a century, auriog wnicn time
tbe States went en together In peace and har
mony, till it was at length ascertained that
eses were growing np under the law, and in
1850 it wa amended.
One of th principal defects in the law of
'93 consisted in the absence of a provision re
quiring tbe master to identify hi slave all
that it demanded waa to offer proof to tbe mag
istrate, either by oral testimony or affidavit,tbat
tbe person seixed owed service or labor to the
Serson claiming him, and tbe certificate of tbe
udge or magiotrat constituted a eofflalent
warrant for removing him to the State from
whence be was alleged to have Bed. ' But the
amended law of 1850 throws additional protec
tion aronnd the fugitive. ' It compels tbe mas
ter to furnish satisfactory proof of his identity.
It not only requires him to establish the fact
that be lost a slave that the slave owed him
service or labor which was due, but also to
prove that the apprehended fngitive is the iden
tical slave that escaped from him, and it is uoi
ontil this further proof 1 satisfactorily eetab
llihed that he can reclaim and take him back
Tboa, wbilo the law of 1850 throws protec
ting agi$ around the freo colored citizen,
abioh the former did not, it at tbe aame time
levies an additional burthen of proof upon th
slaveholder, jet still guaranteeing to bin bis
right under the OJnatltutlon. And new, tb
queation of to-day le, Shall w in Oaio cootiuue

American oluzen to bow before tn majesty ol
But tb present la a different age, and while

and I now invoking tbe demon of Intestine war,
and calling on tbe raven wing; of otter deaoia-
tion to envelori a country, once tbe pride of
earth, and blot our lair tern Die of freedom for-,
ever from human view. ' Were we to explore
the fountains of intellect, and trace the cause of
this fanaticiem, I believe it will be found to re
solve itself into two propositions, the loaveeand
fi-bei, and a btl ef in tbe perfect equality of
tbe negro with that ot the Aoglo-SiS ju raoc
roe more completely to settle audouiDui the
latter proposition, a uew pUi.k had to be ludoc-
triuaird into the Chicago platform. Tbe fa
natics of the North have long been struggling
in tbi direction. Abolition leotuiers bave har

Cuide of document npuO this subject Cuu.ri

time, by aaktog-hiai her hero, wnom the di
vested ol all tbe vices and supeifluities of life.
aod endowed him with all tbe sublime virtues
that ean dignify bnmanity, and assimilate it to
its maker. Tbua baa a sickly sentimentality
been engendered in tbe mind of a poitloo of
tbe American people, with a disposition to bow
down to tbeir ebony idol of the Southern cotton
field, with tbe txolamation, Tboo art tbe God of
onr souls, blest idoaltry!
A trne knowledge ot the history of tbe Af
lican negro in his native wilds coold never war
rant snob adulations of praise j for, although
he haa lived in tbe same bountiful country for
over thirty centuries, he has not advanced be
yond the condition of that in which be probably
commenced his intellectual career. His mind,
like the land of bis nativity, has been a barren
waste, where fiends and tempests bowl. His
genius haa ever been an idle guest, and brouebt
back no trophies from the ocean, earth or tkiee-;
no tablet or bronze, nor obelisks ot granite,
record his deeds. Deetitnte alike of both priest
and temple, and ever roamiog amid those sub
lime solitudes of nature, with superstition like
an incubus brooding over bis terrified imagina
tion, we louod mm the helpless victim or tbe
elements, scorching amid the burning Bands and
desert wastes, and, a little over two centuries
ago, we took him from where be lay, an unpro
tected and timid stranger, and brought blot In
contact with civilization and refinement, thereby
assimilating him to a higher and more exalted
destiny. We gave him a Christian Sabbath, a
holy religion, yea more, we christianized and
colonized a half milliou of the race, returning
them to tbeir native lat.d. In view of all tbe
efforts of the past, who would lay that tbe Af
rican' sojourn among os ha not rather prov
ed a bleaiins than a curse to him, or that
would now willingly blot out tbia progress and
return him to his original condition? .
' Although it is notorious that the negro has
not added a single trophy to the brow of
fame, nor shed a solitary ray to light man's
dreary path, Vet my friend from Like, the giber
day, grew more than nsuatly eloquent In aarrd.
ting tbe great exploits of his African brother; and
it it is really true, aa tne gentleman avers, that
the negro built tbe city of Nineveh, raised tbe
pyramid of Egypt, and originated the art and
sciences, and handed them down successively,
first to the Greeks and afterward to the Ro
mans, these are atrlking events in the faded
volume of the past in whioh th world has long
been in darkness and in error, aad we should

Then, and not till then, let the capstone be
