HOUSE Mr. Farnsworth, of 111.,' being
entitled to the floor, was willing to give way for a
motion to proceed to a vote for Speaker.
Mr. Bnfflln, of N. O., and other Democrats objected,
insisting on Mr. Farntwortb either pruoeediug with
bis remarkaor abandoning tbe floor altogether.
Mr. Farnsworth saltf he made the proposition In
good faith; he did not desire to place any Impediment
in the way cf an organisation. Be and his Republi
can friends had been here for nearly three weeks,
desirous and anxious to vote for a Speaker. They
had no disposition to discuss the slavery question
now. bnt would wait till an ora-anlzation had been

the leading Democratic paper, uf June.'S' 7, aud May

irrepressible cuuflict doctrines, and prouuuucsd fice
society a failure, and further said that war betw, en
the two systems will ran every where until the oue
conquers and tti a other Is exterminated. Mr. Rew
ard, he said, never uttered irrepressible conflict doc
trines half so strong aa that. Senator Hammond,
he added, bad presented similar sentiment with re

He proceeded to arraign tbe Democratic party for
Indorsing the book called Black Diamond, written
by Pollard of Virginia, and caused to be read varloue
testimonials iu iu cover, adding, the writer advo
cates the golug into Africa aud eelzing and deludi ng
natives lo gain their conaeut to ba so loped to tbie
country by tbe middle passages as apprentices, aud
after getting them here to induce them to live In
perpetual bondage. The writer admits it would br
an Infraction ana violation of the laws of tne United
States, but Justifies it by tbe necessities of the case,
and says that the Union could be preserved only by
this so-called conaervatlve policy. Is this th senti
ment of the Democratic party.
Mr. Cobb. 1 deprecate tbe reopening of the slave
trade. Now you speak out and say whether you in

Mr. Farnsworth would like to ask Mr. Miles the
question, whetner ne Indorsed tbose sentiments.
Mr. Miles replied he most heartily, utterly and
from ths bottom of b is heart, deprecated any evasion
of the laws. (AnDlause.) He recoanlaed tha hlaher

Mr. Farnsworth wanted to know whether h was
In favor of reopening the trade by the repeal of the
laws.
Mr. Mile said he was not prepared to say whether
he was in favor of opening the slave trade at some
future time, but not so long a tbe laws of the land
lorbldanaafllnsr in the traffic. Ha believed it now
useless to discuss the Question. Bo long as the South
remained In the confederacy no one believed that In

whether he was In favor of the repeal of the fugitive

Mr. Bon ham said ths act of 1830 which obaraoter.
laed the slave trad a elraoy, was a blot on ths statute
book, and ought to bs expunged; bnt he knew no
party in the South wa in favor of having tb law of
liiu repealed. With igard to the latter be waa not
prepared to say it was unconstitutional, there was
no considerable part of tb South or of the Demo
cratic party, who agitated tbe question of reopening
the trade. It can never ba done iu the confederacy.
As to whether he was in favorof reopening It at soma
future time he waa not prepared to say.
Mr. Farnsworth-Does tbe gentleman Indorse the
sentiment In th book "Black Diamond," for tbe re
vival of the slave trade by law?
Mr. Bonham It I impracticable, I do not stand
In tbe attitude of one who Indorsed tbe violation of
aay existing law.
Mr. Farnsworth asked Mr. McBas whether he in

Mr. MeBae, as an individual, wa In favor of reop

Deuiocratio party in Mississippi or any other South
