KENTUCKY. HOT FOR 'DISUKI0N SECESSION
,. Bl'lC'lDAL. ..
As to the -dissolution of the American
Uuiontbo settled and deliberato coovio
tion of Kentucky is that it is no remedy for
anything whatever, but that it is' of itself
the direst of ell calamities. Kentucky
never had any existence as a Common
realth, except as one of the Stales of the
Ameiican Union. She. never had a dis
loyal thought towards that Union, or to.
wards any sisler state; she never for one
instant desired to enlarge her rights under
.. ni.ts-. ..... . T
me feaern.1 uoneiuuiion.orio exercise any
of those rights offensively, or to deny to
otners tnur equal rights unaertnat lonsu
tuiion. Wholly unable . to comprehend
how it would be lo tbe interest of any
State to secede from the Union, or how
tbesigrlt to Serene' can be considered any
thing else but , pmely revolutionary, she
sees nothing in ihe pst conduot of tbe
Federal Governint.nt to justify secession if
it were a coustituiionul remedy, nothing
in the aspect ot tbe tin es premising any
thing but disaster to the oouniry, to every
seoeding State, sud most especially to her
Self, from the application of any such rem
edy, whether by war, by revbluiim, by
the formation of hew cobfedbraoics, or by
the secession of individual Stales.- As far
as sho can understand, it is mainly the un
ruly pasn'ons of unreasonable men, and the
violent assertion of dubious, 'or, to say the
least, extreme rights and tbe madness ol
political parties in (heir struggle for power
ihat has brought the country td its present
perilous condition. Tbe true remedy for
such disorders is not , the breaking up of
tbe government, but the due enforcement
of the laws, and. posterity will execratu to
tbe enl of time whatever uovernmen
shall allow., the lawless conduot of any
portion of the people to run into secession
or divide others into it. The lives of trai
tors ottgb't not to weigh a feather against
tbe peace of security, ' much less against
the very existence of tbe nation; and their
blood cements instead bf weakening tbe
foundations of society." Civil war itself
within the Union, horrible as civil war al
wave is, is necessarily temporary, and is
inconsistent with the ultimate preservation
of everything destructive in our presen
nationality, and in all our institutions, gen
eral and particular; ami a universal cm
war at this lime, xcitldn tin . Union, could
hardly fail to end in the permanent eatablis
meet, for the whole country, of just what
our fathers established horn 1770 lo 1789
But after the division of the Union upon
tha slave line, and tbe cacessary breaking
cutol'a fierce and interminable war along
fioctiar, eitemlina from the Atlentio
Ocean to the Western border Missouri, no
man can foresee a state of case when peace
can ever be preserved along that fronlibr,
as Well as it oah be In tbe Union, and any
man can see that any future union Of th
divided pbrtions 01 the confederacy, if any
union shall ever be possible, must be upon
tbe very terms now (listing Tbe fnevit
able effect of the recent events at Harpnr'i
Ferry, taken all together, must be to give
a degree of security to the whole slnv
frontier uithin the Union which no part of
it csn ever b)ve out of mt Unon and the

50 Q00b KEASOM V0R TUB PRKSINI SOUTH
O KBN EXCITEMENT. , ; , ,
. , By what blindness, and by what vio
lence of political parties, by what incom
petence of public men, or by what, mad
ness pf the people the couhtry has been
brought to the verge of ' public , violence, I
upon a topio whiob bds been . familiar to
every one since tbe first settlement of this
continent, are questions which . genera
rations we should answer to ourselves are.
what is the preois's nature of the difficulty
now, and in what manner may that diffi
culty be surmounted? If, oei tain people
of the fiorlli come feloniously among tbe
people of the soutlij and are put to .death
for their crimes: and then if other bebnle.
even in great numbers, glorify .the dead
felons ss martyrs, but take care not to
commit an overact and be hung, it seems
to me that the very most futile of all pro
posals against such dangers and suoh an
noyances is the overthrow of tbe . Federal
Government. It may be possible that Gov
ernment can never do all that needs to be
done; 'it may be possible to f pervert it to
the doing of intolerable mischief; but in
the former case the lack of power in the
Federal Government results from the very
nature ol our institutions andits intolera
ble abuse of power in the latter case would
necessarily bo fpllowed by the universal
ming of all (be slave Stales., The real
difficulty does not lie in any such grounds
as these, nor its remedy in anything that
oan be done touching such aspects of tbe
case, , in like manner those great ques
tions of the rendition of fugitive : slaves by
the North, and of the foreign slave trade
at the South, are finally settled so far as
the Constitution and laws of Congress can
settle them, sud it remains for 1 the. legal
tribunals and executive i authority to en
force the laws iu both respects. , That du-
ing periods ol unusual, excitement those
laws, touching both mlijeof, may be im
perfectly administered, in extremely prob
able; but that the North will opeuly defy
the power of the nation, and permanently
reluse to execute the fugitiqo slave law,
and that the South will act in a similar
manner with respeot to the foreign alave
trade, is what no man ii justified in assert
inc. I admit that tbe permanent continu
ance of the Uhio,n would bo impossible, if
the North or Oodib'sbould, deliberately per
sist in sueb a revolt against the Constitu
tion and laws, if st. the same tlje Federal
Adminiatialion should be too-.febblo or too
timid to coerce obedience, tut surely no
such revolt, either North br South and
no Buch imbecility iu the Federal Govern
ment as justifies the overthrow of our na
tional institutions, ctn be alleged to exis!.
If the minds of men were calm, or if their
thoughts would be directed steadily to the
results that mo3t follow the dissolution of
the Union, It seems impossible of beliei
that adequate motives (or such an nctuould
be found in Ihe existing state of any of
these questions. . '
THE UUODEAK OF REPUBLICANISM.
If the wholo North could ol in concert
permanently, they must Lave (he perma
nent control of tie Federal Government;
and the wide conviction of the North that
the whole policy of the General Govern
ment k&B been for some years dictated bv
the slave States, and the whole policy of
the slave Statee dictated by the cotton
States, has Come Very near to easting tbe
majority of every Northern State tempora
rily ipto the Republican tanks, it would
be an abuse of tho Federal power, not less
atrocious oertainly to extend tban lo cur
tail slavery by tbe systematic use of il;aqu
the North has believed that this wasdono,
and tbe rise and extension of the Republi
can parly is tha fruit of this oonviotton
Disabuse the .North of this delusion do it
fairly, truly and Ihe Republican parly
will shrink at onoe to tbe comparatively
insignificant faolibn of radical Abolitionist
upon whom it was originally based. , Un
the other band, tbe united south never
could ' fail lo carry wiib it id all its

a freo constitution; and this is oevar lost
under such a constitution, except by gross
mismanagement. r if therefore, there is i
foreirone conclusion to break up theoonfed

party will answer as A pretext; but.. Ken
tucky dreads no party and Will, use no
such pretext but will make any party in

'TUB' KIT0RIES A
' ''"com. -"
The question'of slavery in the terrjto-
.ries, praotioally developed os that rluestion
w.. m int qti, 01 Rn-. no proww.j
had greater influence than any other, botb
upon the present condition of political par
ties and ib bringing thi jmblio mini to its
present agitated state. Ihe tssiie to which
tbe question io iU abstract form and in
the DeHdcr.-ilio parly has been brbngta is
this! that on one side the' people of the
south very generHlly believe and claim
tbat the Supreme Court hits decided - (bat
every slaveholder has tha constitutional
right to take slaves into every Territory,
and that neither Congress nor the poople
of tbe Territory have any power to pre
vent this: in other words, tbat every Ter
ritory is by the Constitution of tbe United
States a Slave Territory. On the other
hand tbe Democratio party at tbe North,
very generally and decidedly repudiate
these statements as untrue, , arid these
claims as monstrous and assert for the peo
ple of each Territory constitutional power
to deteimlne and regulate for themselves
the tjuestioh of slavery. - In the meantime
tbe Republican party perhaps unanimous-.
ly assert that Congress has complete pow
er toexolude Slavary from nil the Territo
ries and desire this power to be exercised
in all cases as it lias been in fover!. Al
most tbe entire North is therefore directly
against both the fact and the right of what
Ihe greater part of the Souih asserts is the
law of tbe land under the decision of the
Supreme Court. In (he South itself how
ever there is a farther nnd singular devel
opment 6f opinion: ' II has been attempted
in Kentucky and other bonthern States to
make It a part of tie political dioedoftbe
Opposition to demand of Congress a slave
code for the Territories while in the same
region non-intervention by Congress, ex
cept in extremity, if at all, bas appeared
to be the doctrine of tbe Democraiie par
ty.. The result is that tho entire North,
repudiates, and under nisting eiicumatan. i
oes will continue to repudiate,' the idea
that tbe Federal Constituiion or the Su
preme Court makes all the national Terri.
lories slave, while almost the entire South
believes and olaims tbat all ths national
Territories are slurs, by that Constitution.
The drspute is enlarged, not settled, not
even transferred. This is a most calami
tous result of attempting lo turn over ques
tions pre-eminently political to tribunals
wholly judicial; as if public men were war
ranted in supposing tbat great naliona in
tbe highest state of political excitement
believed any more in (he infulibilily of
judges than tb'y did in th infalibility of
bonstors. Kings, or ropes. Even if the
decision of the Supreme Court had been
so dear that no man could doubt what
was decided, so cogent that no man rould
gainsay its justice as between (he parties
to the particular ' cause then heard, it
would have been a miracle if the decision
had settled any political qneslioti. lis
main effect was obliged to be let the ex
cision be what it might to exisperate all
parties, and to reuder any peacelul adjusts
taent of anV aspect of the slave question
far more difficult than before. In truth,
the Constitutional right which tbe South
supposes she has secured, can be of no
praotioal value, even if it were universally
concedid. For if she remains in the Union
she caniot carry on the foreign slave t. ade;
and Unices she oan do thiit she cannot prof
itably send slaves enougn into any Terri
tory we possess nor masters enough with
those sbe may Be rill', to prevent (heir e
mancipation as soon at the territory be-
ponies a btate. 1 he experiment in Kan
sas is surely decisive. If, tin the other
hand, any portion of the South Trill c"eem
it a sufficient reason to secede, that more
slaves may be imported from Africa, and
hew slave teiritorlcs formed; either half
the slave Slates will not sacode for that
reabotl or, if all secede and a confedera
cy of tho slave States is formed, that con
federacy cannot be expectoJ to allow the
African slave trade to bo renewed.. With
