bly, passed at the adjourned session, which clos

Loyalty to the Union.
The words loyai and loyalty are becoming
stereotyped in the current language of the
d. Wa sneak of Ioval States and of
the loyalty of the people. These words are de
rived from a Frenoh word,' signifying law, and
hence, to be loyal la to be obedient to law, or
devoted and faithful to one's duty and obliga
tion. A loval citizen is one who cannot be
bribed or seduced frcm his allegiance to the
Constitution and laws of bis country, sod to
those who sre duly appointed to administer them
while acting within the sphere of their const!
tutional and legal authority.
If there has been any one thing that has die
tirjguisbed the American people more than any
other, it has been loyalty to their confederated
Union. It was by a union Of the colonies that
our Independence was achieved. Almost ss soon
as the revolutionary sttoggio was over, the first
and most prominent object with the statesmen
and tbe people of that day was to perfect that
nnlon, in order to preserve the independence ai
ready gained, and to seeure the blessings of lib
erty to themselves and their posterity. This
darling object was at length accomplished In the
formation of the existing National Constitution
which went into operation In 1789.
Next to the Declaration of Independence,
the adoption of the Federal Constitution, which
consolidated the union that had before existed
in a crude and Immature state, is tbe moat lm
portent and momentous event in American his
tory. Tbe national sentiment was fitly express-
d in the national motto "E Plurilmi Vmetn"
one cut of many one nation, one govern
ment formed out of many separate and distinct
sovereignties, that had originally nnited in the
defence of their liberties, and were now consoli
dated in a permanent noioa for their mainte
nance and preservation. From that time for
ward, tbe American heart has clung to the Un-
ion as the citadel of its safety and prosperity.
What the terms nation and country have been
to other peoples, the word Union hits been te
Americana. It has carried with it to the bo
som of every man, tbe ideas of nationality, of
common interest and a common destiny A
man who would deliberately plot the severance
of tbe Union was, by common consent, consign
ed to the same roll of infamy as ITmidict Aa
molo and Aaaon Bur.
Is this sentiment of loyalty to the Union ex
tinct in the American bosom T A lew months
ago, a stranger unfamiliar with the holy memo
ries and the undying affections' that cluster
around the Ark oi our Union, might have sup
posed, from the seeming indifTerence and apathy
with which the threatened profanation of tbat
Ark was viewed, tbat the people bad forgotten
tbe noble purposes for which it waa reared and
consecrated. But aa soon aa an aggressive and
hostile hand was raised to jostle the Ark of our
Covenant from Its place, the unanimity and
zeal with which tbe mass of the people In a ma
jority oi the States rallied to save it from the
unhallowed touch of disloyalty and treason,
would have convinced the most skeptical visitor,
tbat the old spirit of loyalty and devotion was
as warm in the hearta of the present generation
of Americana aa in those oi their ancestors. '
We have indubitable evidence that nearly
ell the people In a majority of tbe States are
loyal to the Union. We have atrong reasons
for believing that a Urge portion, if not a ma
jority of the citisena in those Stales, whose
governments have not come forward to maintain
the Union in thla crisis, possess the same" senti
ment of loyalty in their hearts. It needs but a
fitting opportunity to be kindled into a bis xe of
patriotism. Loyalty to the Union Is to be found
in the East and the West, in the North and the
South; it is like the air or tbe sunlight, nniver
al, and is destined to save our glorious country
from being divided into separate, petty and hoe
tile sovereignties. .
ST A Kentucky subscriber appends a note to
his letter, renewing hia subscription to the
Statesman, thua "Don't bear so hard on us.
We are for the Union; and all we ask ia our
Constitutional rights. The Statesman has
never been hard on Union men in Kentucky or
any other State- While there waa any hope for
compromise we were in favor of it, and if we had
the power we would cheerfully settle our difficoi
ties now on the proposition of Mr. Caittchdih
or the Border State plan. But the time for com
promise baa gone by, the Cotton States having
precipitated tbe country into a revolution, ao
eotdiogtothe plan of Yancit & Co-. Bad the
Democracy of the South stood by their friends in
tbe free States; had not a large portion of tbem
wickedly end wilfully broke op our organization
at Charleston, aad thua aided indirectly in tbe
election of Lincoln, we believe the country
would have been spared the calamities whlob
now overwhelm ns as a people.
But tbe success of the Republicans and tbe
election of their President was no cause for
the revolutionary movement in the Cot
ton States, which followed. - However
much the Democracy of the North may have
sympathized with tbe true men in the Sooth, in
their opposition to the doctrines and principles
of the Republican party, tbey are nevertheless
the steadfast friends of the Union, and have now
no other course left open to them but to stand
bribe Constitution and maintain the Govern
ment In its Integrity. In doing this they do not
commit themselves to tbe Abolition doctrines and
doemaa of the "higher law" men in the North;
thev do not make war on the Southern Statee or
the Institutions of those States; but simply put
forth tbelr nnited power to rare the Conatltn
tion and the Unions S ' ' ' ,
The Democracy In tbe free States ere now,
aa they have always been, the enemies of tbe
oilouaand hateful doctrine of secession. Tbey
believe that our government ia not a rope of
ind, to be broke asunder at any time upon
the mere motion of disappointed or disaffected
men in any of the States, but that it I a per
petual Union, established to promote tbe gener
al welfare end common good of ell..---.--
The people of the North f: I theut respect to
ferty, will atand by the Union, and tend all their
power to vindicate Its authority in all the States,
sad it ia Important that the Union men In Ken-
lucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia and Mary
land, should not only stand firm, but that tbey
shonld be active la upholding the lawful au
thorities of the land, in all eonstitutloaal snorts
to put down rebellion. This duty Is Incumbent
on every good and loyal citizen, whether his lot
be east In Ohio, Kentucky or any other State,
and much depends on a faithful and earnost dis
charge of It.

Remarks Mr. Plants in the House of Representatives
May 13, 1861.
ON THE SEWARD-CORWIN AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION
OF THE UNITED STATES.
Mr. PLANTS said, hs desired very briefly to
state his reasons- for opposing the adoption
ox tne proposition lr amending the constitution
now beiore tbe House, lie aaid he bad beard
of no reteon for the adoption of the proposed
amendment, other than tbe presumed effect its
adoption will have In winning back to their alle
giance the seceded Slates, and to prevent the
secession ot others, liut be did not believe its
adoption would have any suoh effect. Whatev
er else may be true, it Is not true tbat the lead
ing spirits in the seoesbluu movemeut are fools.
Bat unless tbey are hopelessly demented, such
an amendment, adopted with the pretended ob
ject in view can have no such effect. They know,
aa all tbe world knows, that tbe Republicans
without exception bold, and have ever held slave
ry te be a purely local Institution, limited to tbe
Statrt which maintain it.and over which Congress
bos no control whatever. And in this unanimous
opinion of the Republicans be believed the masses
of all other parties now concurred. If, then, with
this knowledge, tbeslave States have determined
to break up the Union and destroy the Government
established by tbe Constitution ss it Is, does any
sane man preUnd to believe that the adoption
of this amendment will bring back the revolted
States to their allegiance, or prevent others from
There is no evidence that a single siavei btate
desirrs tho adoption of this amendment, or tbat
its adoption will bave the slightest enect noon
the conduct of those dissatisfied with the Con
stitution as it is. Tbe proposed amendment
does not meet tho demands of the disnnionists,
and no others bavs any objection to the Con
stitution as our fathers bequeathed it to us.
Nothing less than a radical change in the
structure and workings of the Constitution,
so as to give the control of the Government to
a minority representing a sectional olasa inter
est, or a dissolution or the Union, will satisfy
tbe secessionists. This amendment does neith
er. It, in fact, does not make any practical
ehange at all, for nobody proposes to do what
the amendment purports to prohibit. The se
cesslonists are not so stupid as not to see this.
Its adoptlon,therefore, being unasked by tbem
being, so far as tbey ere concerned, a delusion or
Bhsm, wilt have" a tendency rather to Irritate
than to satisfy them. It can do no good, there
fore, and will only tend to complicate our diffi
culites, and widen tbe breach which it la pro
fessedly Intended to close up.
But, Mr. P, aaid, there waa another reason,
which was conclusive with him, against the
adoption of the proposition.
The General Assembly of the State of Ohio,
in generous response to her sister States ol
Kentucky and Illinois, has adopted a joint reso
lution, asking Congress, in pursuance of the 5th
Article of tbe Constitution of the United States,
to call a general Convention of all tbe States,
for tbe purpose of doing whatever the exigen
cies of the whole country and the sovereign will
of the people may require to be done. And he
would not embarrass the action of the Convention
representing, as it will, the sovereignty of the
people, by the adoption of this impertinent (and
unoalledlbr proposition. Can you not trust the
people T Are we, who were not elected for any
such purpose, and without the consent, and
scarcely with the knowledge of the peoples to
forestall the action of the people, themselves by
passing an amendment to the Constitution which
in terms proposes to bind their sovereign will
forever, and prevent the people even by a unani
mous Vote, from undoing our basty work? This
may do in South Carolina but the sons of the free
West are hardly yet prepared to bow their necks
to the yokel -.
Neither can tbe President or Congress
recognize the dissolution of the Union or tbe
government formed by the secessionists.
A atate of things, therefore, exists un
known to the Constitution, and not contem
plated by its frsmers. No department of the
Government can act outside of the authority of
that instrument. Their plain sworn dnty ia to
enforce the Constitution, and not to change or
violate it. large maasea or tbe people, includ
log many whole States, have plaoed themselves
in open rebellion to tbe Constitution. Should
the President attempt to enforce tbe laws and
maintain tbe Constitution, not only those in tbe
South, but members upon thia floor, tell na that
civil war will be Instantly inaugurated Are we
prepared for war 7 What good could possibly
result from Itf Admit that treason should be
punished. But if treason becomes so strong as to
oeeomea auccessiui revolution, now will you
pumsn me traitors t
Tbls amendment will either give to slavery a
sanction which the Constitution, at our fathers
made It, never gave, or it will not. ' If it does
its passage will be a stultification of sentiment
or tbe people or the State, and if it does not,
then tbe transparent sham la an insult to the
South. Ia any event the passage of the resolu
tion, unaer present circumstances, is ill timed
uncalled ror, improper.
