Lecture of Miss Emma Hardinge
Miss Emma Ilardincre delivered ilarlers at
the Unitarian-Church, corner of Fourth and
Rare-afreets, lart night, on the subject of
establishing a home tor the reformation of
iii'paaieni'9. 'rue rdihce was compactly
filled, and the speaker succeeded In interest
ing the audience durihg the tour and th-ee-quarters
which she consumed in delivering
her address. She appears earnest in her ef
forts and devoted to the cause of the eleva
tion and reformation of the fallen of her
pcx: and this amply compensates for all the
faults in her elocution.
She eaid that we must not rush headlong
into reform, but calmly consider every step
before we take it. Nothing should be done
without calm reflection and a careful calcula
tion of all the results that may accrSie. Her
object was to induce society to stretch forth
its band and rescue those of her sex who
have fallen, and who are now outcasts, as
well as tliOFe who may hereafter become so.
In this work several objections and ob
stacles presented themselves. It was said
that these females these women of the
town were irreclaimable, that no matter
what was done or what inducements were
held out, the fascinations of their dreadful
life were sure to hurry them downward to
But this was only imaginary. She had
yet to learn of one created thing, even. the
humblest animal, that God formed for de
struction. Hut to whom shall the Magda
lene fly? She is cast off by her sisters, and
those females who would cheerfully stretch
forth the hand of friendship to the man who
had brought rain and desolation upon her,
would turn away with scorn and contempt
from his victim. Let it be remembered that
in all crimes against chastity there must be
The second objection is, that Mogdalenes
are necessary members of society that if
they were taken away,no house would be safe
from ruffianly attack, no virtue ashield against
violence. This objection, too, was with
out validity. Man possesfed large destruct
iveness; vet no one ever proposed to have
appointed victims to satisfy his desires. Kach
individual possessed tho organ of acquisitive
ness ; but there were no houses erected on
purpose to permit him to commit legalized
robbery. We must not look to legislation ;
legislators are too frequently of that class of
persons who, in" their ' pride and strength,
trample frail women down.
The crime ngainst women has always ex
isted. It must have originated in the age
when might was the only standard of right,
and when the strong man regarded the in
mates of his harem as so many tributes to
his power. As society became more civilized,
the systemof polygamy was introduced. But
it was not till the great founder of tho
Christian Church appeared, that female
slavery received a rebuke, and the proper
system of marriage was instituted. The cli
mate of the North was favorablo to virtue,
and hence the practice of polygamy was
abandoned in Europe.
The reign of mind is now superseding
that of might, and now is the time to strike
for the elevation of down-trodden humamtv.
She did not demand what was popularly
termed "women's rights," but Gud will re
quire the talent back again, whocrer its
She had found the lowest animal capable
of improvement by training, and she did
not believe that humanity could be sunk so
low as to be beyond reclamation. Let the
proper means be employed, and every fallen
creature can be placed iu that elevated posi
tion which God and Nature desigued he or
she should occupy. Let man place himself
in the position of those fallen women; let
him be the scoff of all his old companions;
let every avenue, to honest employment be
shut out, everv door be closed upon him; let
him feel the pinchings of hunger, or be shel
terless amid storm and cold, and how much
better would he be than those poor creatures
in our streets? They sell their virtue for
bread, and are unchaste tor shelter; but man
has no such excuse.
Since her (the speaker's) childhood, Bhe
had been before the public, first, as a musi
cian, aud within the last three veara mi a
public speaker. In her profeusionnl capacity"
cue unci unu ircquum opportunities to 00-
sctve these women. In her native eountry
(England) they were permitted to go to all
places of public amusement, free of charge,
in order to induce men to go there. In
Paris, she found the "women of the town"
still more wretched. Fully fifty every
month and their number is increasing
drown themselves in the Seine. Who can
imagine the wretcheduess of those who,
driven to desperation, throw off that life
destined for a better purpose? In America
hospitality is extended to every class, except
the Magdalene; but for hor there is no kind
word no offer of protection no shelter.
If one attempted to reform, she could not
obtain honest employment, without de
ceiving her employer; and then, if her real
character became known, she would be at
once cast off, for what she has been, no mat
ter how exemplary her conduct at the time.
Then bow shall she be reformed? You tell
her to go to Jesus; but she will answer that
bhe lives in the world, and must have bread.
But if every method of acquiring a liveli
hood by ordinary labor is shut out, is there
not some specialty at which she caa find
People buy goods, nor ask by whose hands
they are manufactured; they purchase bou
quets, nor ask how chaste the one who ar
ranged them. Can they not be employed in
manufacturing some thing which is neces
sary, and will command a price ?
The raising of flowers was an ennobling
pursuit It cultivated the taste, elevated
the character, and was condacive to cheer
fulness and health ; and she proposed to have
a great reform-farm of this kind, where seeds
could be cultivated and sold, as successfully
and profitably as by the Shakers; where medi
cinal roots could be raised and prepared;
where bouquets eould be arranged; and
where the lost ones could bury, in happy,
cheerful pursuits, the bitter recollections of
the past. Such an institution would be self
sustaining, as all institutions, to be flourish
ing, must be. Such labor would be well
adapted to the object in view, and would fit
those engaged in it to again go forth, re
generated, and such adepts, that their service
would be indispensable.
To carry out her project, $50,000 would be
needed ; but lest some one might suspect she
appropriated the money to her own pur
poses, not one dollar should go into her
hands. In every town she entrusted the
funds raised to responsible parties ; and, in
Cincinnati, Mr. Conway and Mr. Lovell
would act as her agents.
After she had concluded, Mr. Conway de
livered a brief address, and exhorted liber
ality. A collection was then token, aud a
considerable sum raised, and more promised.

WASHINGTON, December 27.
SENATE A number of petitions were
presented. Mr. Rice presented a resolution,
and asked for its reference to the select Com
mittee of Thirteen. It was so referred with
Mr. Green called for the order of the day
Territorial business. A bill was reported
from the Committee on Territories, to pro
vide for the Territorial Government of Ari
zona, and taken up. Mr. Green explained
the bill. 1
Mr. Brown moved to add a section that the
act of the Legislature of New Mexico for the
protection of slave-property, be in force in
Mr. Trumbull moved to amend that the
law which was in force in the said Territory
st the time of the annexation, remain in
force until it becomes a State.
Mr. Doolittlo said we had lived together
for eighty years in peace. Peace was based
on two ideas ; first, that the Federal Gov
ernment and citizens of non-slaveholding
Estates should make no aggression on
slavery in the States, and the other, that
neither the Federal Government nor the
citizens of the slaveholding States should
make any aggressions, nor undertake to
overthrow freedom in the States. If these,
conditions were broken, there can not be
peace. He said the Constitution was the
Etiprerne law of the land, of every State,
and if the Constitution contains any lan
guage wliich would abolish slavery in a
Territory, it would abolish it in a State. He
then referred to the Dred-Scott decision,
and claimed that there was nothing in that
decision to lead any one to infer that the
Constitution establishes slavery in any Ter
ritory; nothing that justifies men in saying
that the Constitntion enters the Territory
acquired from Mexico, and abolishes Mexi
con law and establishes a law guaranteeing
the right to take and hold slaves in this
He argued that if we should annex Can
ada, the Constitution had no power of its
own force to repeal the law there in regard
to slavery, which had been in force 100
years. He said the Senator from Teunessee
(Mr. Nicholson) had said there was great
alarm at the South from the free States, and
said he apprehended the time would come
when the f ree Slates would attempt to amend
the Constitution so as to extinguish slavery.
Why did not the Senator from Tennessee, if
he wished to allay the alarm, quote in his
speech part of the Republican platform,
which declares an essential principle to be
the maintenance of State rights, in order to
maintain the balance of power, and de
nounces the invasion of any State, on no
matter what pretext ? Why did not the Sen
ator quote from the speeches of the President
elect, when he had declared, over and over
again, that he did not intend or wish to in
terfere with slavery in the States 7
Mr. Doolittle then read from Mr. Lincoln's
speeches, where he had declared he had no
purpose, QirectJy or indirectly, to interfere
with slavery in the States.
He believed he had no lawful right to do
so, nor had he any inclination to do so.
Mr. Nicholson said he had stated that the
Republican parly had expressed a determina
tion 10 regard tne rignts ot Southern men
in the States, but he laid down a general
principle outside of the State which, if car
ried out, would destroy their rights in the
Mr. Doolittle said he understood the gen
tleman to say that he apprehended the Re
publican party would so lucioaso in power
that at last it would amend the Constitution
so as to destroy tho rights of the South and
emancipate the slaves.
Mr. Nieholson said ths policy and princi
ples of the Republican party, if carried out,
would extinguish slavery, and he had ex
pressed the apprehension that if the power
of the free States increased, and they intended
to carry out their purpose, it would lead to
the ultimate extinction of slavery.
Mr. Doolittle f-aid the Republican party,
as he understood, it, stood to protect aud
maintain the rights of States to all powers,
not expressly delegated or necessury to
carry into effect the powers delegated. It
was fundamental with them to maintain
the sovereignty of the soveral States, and
the right to control all domestic institutions.
He would undertake to Bay that uo Repub
lican expressed the desire or wish that tho
General Government has power to interfere
with slavery in the States. He knew there
was a book published by an individual
named Spooner that took the grouud that
the Constitution itself abolished slavery, bnt,
it found no supporters of any weight. It
was precisely like that other fanatical idea
that the Constitution, of its own force, es
tablishes Slavery any-whete on the earth.
Mr. Clingman said he bad seen it pub
lished that the Senator from New York(Mr.
Seward) had recommended the book. Did
the Senator from Wisconsin mean that this
was a forgery, or did he mean the Senator
from New York bad no weight.
Mr. Doolittle said the Senator from Mis
sissippi (Brown) recommended it. He be
lieved that the author wus a man of sound
tense, but what he (Doolittle) said was that
the idea that the Constitution establishes or
abolishes sluvery had no shadow of founda
tion. The Constitution was formed by men
who knew the meaning of the words they
rmplayed. . They recognized the right of
slaveholding States to persons held to serv
ice, and mode it the duty of free States to
deliver np such persons, but left each State
sovereign over iu owu laws. The law of the
slave States makes the slaves property. The
luw of the free States does not make them
property. The Constitntion does neither.
With the idea, that the Constitution estab
lishes slavery, we can not have peace on the
slavery question, and, we may as well know
it first as last. The people of the United
States will never consent that the Constitu
tion be so altered as to become by iu own
force a slavery-extending Constitution, but
they do not put a construction upon it which
will make it abolish Blavery in any "State or
We simply ask, that the Constitution stand
as onr fathers made it, neither offering or
denying, then we can have peace.
He read again from Mr. Lincoln's speeches
to show that be had no desire to infringe on
the rights of the States. He said he desired
to speak a few moments, on what was al
leged to be the causes of the existing agita
tion one was introduced by the Senator
from Kentucky, which he very much re
gretted to see brought np. It was only
recently that he had heard'of it in connection
with this controversy. It is thought some
of the non-slaveholding States refuse to Bur
render criminals. He said that it had gener
ally been admitted, as a rule, that if a crime
committed was a crime within the law of
the bate to which the criminal fled, then be
should be surrendered, not otherwise.
He cited a case of Virginia refusing to
deliver some negroes at an early day in the
history of the country, and the case of the
Governor of Kentucky. He said, lay aside
the excitement on the negro question, and
he did not think ten men on the floor would
advocate the doctrine that a State could by
its own law, make what it concedes to be a
crime, and can by iu indictment establish of
necessity, the evidence of guilt as well as of
The honorable Senator from Kentucky
said it was annoying. He knew it was an
noying to have negroes kidnapped from Ohio
and Indiana, and annoying to the slave
holders that their slaves may be enticed to
run away, but there was a higher principle
involved. Another cause of the trouble was
said to be the non-rendition of fugitive slaves.
He admitted the validity of the clause in the
Constitution requiring rendition. He ad
mitted that was one of tha clauses in the
Constitution that ha had sworn to support,
but he must say that questions had arisen as
to the construction of this clause. He be
lieved that the Constitution should be strictly
construed, and he thought it the duty of the
States to make provision to faithfully carry
Into effect this clause of tba Constitution,
but ha admitted with equal frankness that a
majority of the people of the United States
thought Congress possesses the power to
legislate to carry this into effect.
He said Mr. Lincoln was in favor of giv
ing the South the Fugitive-Slav Law, aud
read speeches to support the assertion. The
South complains that they lose a great dual
by fugitives, and few are reuUiiuv4. TUii
arifes from the foci that they jossese a pecies
of property with a WaU'of its own, and legs
of its own, and desire o.f its own to get away.
This is no fault of ours, a.id tho North is not
responsible for that. The Senator from Vir
ginia (Mason), holding that few years ago
Virginia lost annually $100,0V0, and be be
lieved she lost the saute now. He would
concede that for the sake of argument, Vir
ginia had about 5,000,000 slaves, worth arvut
$800 at least, before the panic, making $f V
000,000. The loss of $100,7)00 is only one
fortieth of one percent., or about one quarter
of a mill on the dollar. This is less than the
risk incurred in any other species of property
in the United States. Suppose the people
of the harder States resolve themselves into
n insurance company, how small would be
the premium to cover the lo98, and special
prosperity has special advantage, ft has
advantages of representation. Is it strange
that such property should be subjected to
peculiar risks? What will those gentlemen
gain by severing tho bonds of union if they
run these slight risks now? What risk will
they run when the Northern States will be
under no obligations to return their property?
Would ten per cent, cover ths loss of the
State? Let the bond of the Union be broketi,
and slave property would .of necessity retire
from the border.
He eaid the Abolitionists of the North
stand looking with anxiety, and praying
that the Union may be dissolved, that tho
North shall no longer be compelled to re
turn fugitives. They know what tho effect
would be, and desire dissolution. They
know that the time i coming when the
slave population of some of the slave States
will preponderate, so that the physical power
of the State will no longer keep them in
subjection, and they want the Union broken
up, so they may aim the Federal Govern
ment and not be called upon to put down in
surrection. They are as nnxioti for disso
lution as the extremists in the Gulf States,
lie said there was one other matter whirh
he wished to refer to. The Constitution was
the supreme law of the land, and of every
State, any State law to the contrary not
withstanding. Every citizen of the United
Stater, therefore, holds double allegiance to
the Federal Government ; also to the State,
and may be gnilty of treason against either
or both. If Congress goes beyond the Con
stitution in enacting a law, the law is null
and void; and if the State makes a law
against the Constitution of the United States,
it is also null and void.
Mr. Benjasnin asked if a citizen could be
placed in conflict between these two ; if so,
he must, of necessity, hi guilty of treasou
to one or the other, and he hanged any way.
Mr. Doolittle said he could not. Thero
was no act of a State making treason which
is in conflict with the United States Consti
tution. It does not make treason though
the State declares it so.
Mr. Benjamin asked what advantage that
could be to the citizens?
Mr. Doolittle said the citizen must act at
his own peril. He went on to argue that it
was not in the power of the citizens of a
Stute to annul an net of Congress, if a mo
tion can dissolve the connection of the Fed
eral Government, if one State can secede
from all the rest, then all the rc3t can se
cede from the one which gives power to ex
pel a State ; fo the right of secession in
volves the right of expulsion. He referred
to the War of 1812, and the Hartford Con
vention, aud said if the doctrine was coricct
the New England States could have resulved
themselves out of the Union nod gone over
to the enemy and taken the fortresses hi Bos
ton harbor nnd other. forts, and turned our
own guns against us; or, if now in time of
peace, Pennsylvania should withdraw, she
could cut oft nil the mail-routes, and we
could not go from New York to Virginia
without crossing a foreign country, and so

Green and Doolittle, when the Senate ad

Mr. Stevens said bis attention was called

to arrest the attention of the House.
It was his fortune to be Chairman of the

his utmost energy to make the wilderness

was a most false and malicious slander prop
agated on an honorable body of men, and
which required a most severe rebuke. He
never knew these bonds had existence till
the fact of ths robbery was made known
this morning. He called on the Chairman
of the Select Committee asking lilm to nroba
this matter to the bottom, so thut punish
ment may fall on the guilty.
In relation to the article in the Boston
Herald, the speaker said it appears on in
vestigation, the youug gentleman informed
him to-day that these words wore interpo
lated in Boston, showing a disposition to
break down an organization supposed to be
adverse to that of the editor iu the World.
The words "it is thought," appear in con

Buie the reputatiou of honorable men, who
were exposed to the irresponsible attacks of
the foul and filthy herd of men who en
deavor to east their slime on men on whom
they are not worthy to look. It is the duty
of the committee, if they can, to stop this
defamation of character.
Mr. Morris, of Illinois, said that Mr.
Stevens called on him this morning and ex
pressed his desire that the subject be
thoroughly investigated. He had, as the
Chairman, informed him that he had no
control ever the matter, but would lay the
matter before the Select Committee, having
them to determine what was proper to be
done in the premises.
