' Speech of? Hon. Chan. Keadf.
In to-day's Patriot we give the firrt half
of Mr. Eeadt's speech on ibe admission of
Kansas. We have already devoted a great
deal of our "-pace to t5ie diECUgfiiona upon this
abject, on both rfdes. . We Jiave all along r-gardt-d
it as a question of great moment, and
more so in its ulterior and future effects than
in its immediate application to Kanww. We
have therefore been induced to give a pretty
full record of its propreBH. We hope noon to
be able to announce the conclusion of the de
bates, when the public mind can ntt from a
subject the most irritating and dangerous to
the Republic ; and when we can devote more
of our time and space to matters infinitely
more congenial to us and pleasing to our
readers. Mr. Readt's remarks will be found
calm, considerate and dignified, and we com
mend them to the read :r's attention.

The House being in Committee of the Whole oil the

Mr. Chaitiji in : I propoe to ditciiKS the
pending proposition fr tlie udmiwion of Kan

doing so.it in not my intention to go into a
la'iored d fence of slavery, or to elaborate
the question as to whether or nor. it can law

on the subj ct. For my pr-sent purpose, I
am content to find thi-Constitution recfgni-

that tti Tin-fifths of the slave population are to

to draw invidious comparisons lx-lween the

different sections of the coiintiv, as they may
be affected one way or the other, by their heal

this point, was wholesome and appropriate;
and 1 wish that Northern as well a.i Southern
gentlemen would reflect upon, and act in ac
cordance with it. Having said this, I mu-a
add, that I am sure there are f-w if amy in
stances in which Southern men may have !een
betrayed into the use of remarks of the char
acter indicated, except in rerpons" to dispar
aging and offensive arguments appln-d to their
section, lint I drop this now, and I trust

the Constitution, whose platform is broad

Without further preliminary remarks, I
come directly to the discussion of the impor
tant measure which has occupied so much of
our time. Under a law passed lour years
since, Kansas was organized as a Territory.
Her organic law was I'oiineltd upon the uiisr
tion of n great fundamental principle the
- non-intervention of Congress on the subject of
slavery in the Territories; to give edict to
which, it was mcess:iry to repeul the Missouri
Compromise. Finding in the Consiituliou no
Kfttnt of power to Congress to restrict slavery
iu the Territories, or elsewhere, 1 believe the
Compromise was unconstitutional. I, al o,
believe it was a violation of our treaty stipu
lations with France, by which we aoiuind
the territory; and that it was unjust to the
South. 1 w as, th- refore, iu favor of its. repeal,
aud of leaving the people of the UriMoiy
perfectly free to form u;id regulate their
dom"ttic institutions in their own way, suls
ject only to the Constitution of the United
Whatever difference of opinion may have
existed in regard to the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise when the act was pi-! d, 1 Is-lieve
a very large majority of the Unit- il States
finally came to the conclusion that Conens
siouai non-iuTLrveiition, nsdet-lareil in tin-act,
was the true doctrine on which the iustioii
of slaviry was to be scttld. 1 tut of that
opinion; und believed, in common with the
friends of the measure, that it would har
monize discordant (.lenient., and give quit t
to the country on the most ni;itainig sub
ject. la the progress of events, a difference of
opiuiou was developed as to the construction
of the clause d clui'iut; that "ilie people of the
Territory wire left perfectly five to loan nnd
regulate their domestic iui-titutions in their
owu w ay, subj ct only to the Constitution of
til United States."
One s d : asserted the ri?ht of the rot.l of
the Territory, ia their Mritor.ul capacity, to
eaaibb-h or prohibit bl.iry; a dociriue
which h is generally bjeu call d "tqu tUer aote

correctly, that miihtr the p. epic- in th.ir
terrion; l capacity, nor the territorial legi.-l.i-ture
hav? p.iwer either to establish or prohils
it it. I lisl.uctly anuouueed tlii pjsition in

1 1 view of h r history, it is not a matter of
uprise that she is eudurrassed ut ev ry tti p
t ikea to divest herself of her territorial pupil
age, a'ld assume the character of a sovereign
State, but, we should n -ui uilxr, she is asking
a high constitutional privilege which should
not be denied her, except on weih'y and cou
cluslve reasons. Saall bhj be admitted T 1

It is couceded by all that she has sutlicit nt
E ovulation to entitle u r to admission; aa l 1
ive not heard it doubted that her cutitu
tioa is repuUicau in form. Wa it L'ally
fo aied! If it was, thery can le no valid oi

T .Titoral Legislature passed an act. sibmit
tl ,g it to the vote or ttie people to determine
w it ther they were In favor of holdiug a con
Tsatiou to frame a Stale constitution, prepar-ax.-y
for admiasiou iuto the Union. An elec
tion "was accordingly held, in Octolier, lNitf,
the result of which was au almost uuaninious
vote in favor of tiie in -a lire, la accordance
therewith, the Territorial Legislature oa the
19th of February, pved a law tor
making an euuiuerabou of the inhabitants;
for reg strring the qualified voter; and lor the
election of del rgaus to a conrcutiou. Tlnj
the'iGoveruor, Mr. Geary, vetoed the bill, .
cause it bid nut require that thj cuuslilutioo
to b.i frame 1 should be suwu.tt.d to a jM.pu
lar rote for adoption or r -jt ctiou. Ujoa a
r coo -ideratiou of the bill iu each Loue of
the legislative asa-mMv. it was iuei over
tb Goreroor's vote: bj a two-th'.rda tou;
sal e uis i neatly, it became a valid law. It
wa regular y, lirly, aud legally enacted, as
far a .. u.ve any know ledu ir iut.n muon.
It is uHiuually guard d ut all iu prwviona,
with the yi w of protecting the r.gL oi eve j

frauds; and for securing a full and fairexprrs
sion of the popular will in the election ot del
egates. There is nothing in it startling to fair
minded men; but much to claim their admira
tion and confindence. If it differs from pre
vious laws passed under like circumstances,
for a like object, the difference veas in favor
of the honest legal voter aud against cor
rupt and bad men. The 11th section of the
law provides "every bono, fide inhabitant of
Kansas, being, a citizen of the United States,
and twenty-one years of age. whose residence
in the county where he offers to vote shall
have been three months next before said
electtion, shall be entitled to vote." With
this specification of the qualification of voters,
fo emim utly just and proper, and the means
provided for ascertaining the qualification of
each and every man presenting - himself as a
voter, and preventing and punishing violence,
fraud, and illegality oC any kind.it is incon
ceivable how fair men can raise an objection
In pursuance of this law. the enumeration
of the inhabitants, and registry of the voters
were taken, as far as practicable. The voters
registered numbered 9.2ol, tailing but little
short of the largest vote, up to that time, ever
cast in the Territory. The apport.onment was
made by the actng government ; and on the
3d of June, 1837, in pursuance of the law,
the election of delegates took place. The con
vention assembled at 1 toompton, on the hret
Monday of September, 157, I lx lieve ; and
the constitution cow before us is the result of
Upon the fcceof the record, all is fair : and
the question recurs, shall Kansas lie admitted
as a Stat", under this constitution ?
It Is opposed by some gentlemen, first: lie
cause there whs not an enabling act passed by
Congress; while others as strongly oppostd,
take the ground that an enabling act was not
necessary. I apprehend the jrrouuds of the
opinion of loth cl tsses, are alike inconsistent
with the rightof admission under the Lecoinp
ton constitution. '
I hold that the act of the Territorial Legis
lature, authorizing the ele-ction of delegates
and the holding of a convention, bawd as it
was upon the previously expressed will of the
peopl , iu pursuance of law. was the only
enabling a' t neoesury. in addition to the or
gauic act of the Territory, which is, of itself,
an enabling act.
"It being the true Intent anil meaning of this act not
tu U-kikIhU; (Uvery lulu any Territory or Hiite, nor to
xelii'le It tUuretram, but to leave the people thereof
jmrl'wt'y free Ui form anil regulate their domeftic in
stitutions in their own wny, subject only to the Consti
tution of the United Mules."
This provision, as I have already intim:t"d,
did not authorize the pi ople of the territory,
while in their Territorial pupilage, to decide
upon the question of slavery. Congres has
no powi r itself, to cstahlUh or prohibit slavery
iu the Territories or elsewhere, as luis In?, u
d -cided by the Supreme Court ; and. this was
the broad foundation on which rested the re
peal of the Missouri restriction of slavery
north of 3!i 30 . Not possessing the power,
of course Congress could not cunfir it else
where. lt was not necessary to incorporate the pro
vision qtiot' d, in the organic net, merely to
authorize the p -ople of the Territory to es
tablish or proh bit slavery w hen they came to
act in their sovereign capacity, us w hen fram
ing a State constitution. The right exists as
an attribute of sovereignty ; was not. by the
Constitution, couf. in d on Conjjres. aud was
therefore ''reserved to the States, respectively,
or to the people."
l.r.t there was a motive, an object to be ac
complished by this provision of the act ; and
it doubtless was. to enable the people of the
Territory, after the period had arrived at
which tin y could constitutionally act. in their
own time and maun' r, cither by the employ
ment of a convention chosen by themselves,
or by popular vote, to decide the- question of
slavery for themselves, without the necessity
of further Cont;resional nciion. How could
they be jwrfectl '; J 'in to farm and rrjulate thiir
domestic institutions in Uttir omi way, tu'ijct onbl
to tf.t (iiitstittition of the I'nited States,'' ii it was
iiecesfary for Congress to passu subsequent act
to '-liable them to do it? If the right re'sti d
with Congrt ss, why should it not prescrilte tin;
mode as well as the time? Then one or both
might not accord with their wishes ; and, be
ing thereby restrained, they would not le
" perfortly free to form and reyulute their doine&lic
iit.-titittons tn tlteir own vv."
I might r. fer to the opinions of distinguish
ed gentlemen, whose peculiar positions at the
time they were express, d. und the relations in
which thiy now stand to this subject, give
tin m unusual point at:d force. I refer to the
opinions of Senator Houghi. in his Spring
lit Id spe rh, of the 12th of June, 13.17; and to
the speechcH of Governor Walker and S. crc
tary Stanton, to the people of Kansas, pend
ing the i-lirtio:i of d--legateii to the Conven
tion, in w hich they ail hold that uo other ena
bling act was necessary.
A majority of the House of Itepresenta
fives of the 31th Congress, in which Rt publi
can members were in the usccudaucy, and
many of whom are memlsTS of the present
lions", did not consider an enabling act by
Congrets n cessarv, iu regard to Kansas. The
Toombs bill, caret ul ly prep ired. fair and ju-t
iu its provisions, authorziitg Kansas to form
a constitution, passed by the Senatu ly a
large majority, was lo.-t iu the House by the
voles of t'ae Republican party. It will be
reiuemtieri d they then had rt favorite bant
linp, known as the Topeka constitution,
frumi d by a convention gotten up without
any law, in opposition to, and iu defiance of
till lawful authority, and revolutionary in its
character, under which they were atti mpting
to bring Kansas into the Union as a sovereign
Stale. No enabling act was then necessary in
Wh-ii th.- territorial act of July ls.'ij, au
thorizing lh ' holding u convention, r itched
ihe 3ltu Congress, th -n in session, and its
fair, just and wise provisions w r.- seen, but
f -w regri Is were ent rtaini'd iu ither House,
for lh'? failure of the Toombs bill; and douots
were no longer entertaim d. that in due sea
son the p' ople of Kansas would form aud
regulate their domestic institutions in their
ow n way, iu accordance w ith the strict' bt
fid, lity to the organic act and the Constitu
tion of the l uited States. Th" lute, and the
existing administrations recognized the 1 gal
ity i f the procecdiuc; and 1 believe I may
say. t'a. re was a general aequo i-c nee in nil
the d partments of the Government.
lt u.ts, in fact, never b en considered an
indisp.'UMihleor necessary p:i liminary in any
ca.se, that Congrt t should puss un enabling
act, though it has som. times been done. At

A second objection is, that a large portion
of the tre. -State oiers w ere disfranchise d and
uot ailowtd to vote for delegates to the con
vention; that the arrangements for a registry
of the votes were iuad. quute to the cud, or
that the ollicers tail, d to discharge their duty
through negligence, fraud, or some other
cause; und not having Iseil registered they
were prevented from voting.

George Wilson, Judge of Probate for An
derson county, made an affidavit that to bis
personal knowledge, this party threatened the
life of any who should attempt to take the le
gal census; that the life of any one attempting
to execute the law in this respect was in dan
ger; and - that these threats prevented the
taking of the censuss in Anderson county
Tri thin the .time prescribed by law. He also
rwears that similar threats prevented the ex
ecution of the law in Allen and Franklin
I believe these statements have never been
refuted, or seriously controverted. On the
contrary, the determination of the V-w7r
not to vote in the election of delegates to the
convention has become a matter of history,
as also the efforts of Governor Walker and
others to induce them to change their inten
tions, by warning them that those who ab
stain from the exercise of the right of suf
frage, authorize those who do vote, to act for
them in that contingency, and the absentees
are as much bound under the law and consti
tution, where there is no fraud or violence,
by the act of the majority of those who do
vote, as if all bad participated in the election!"
This principle lies at the very foundation of
all representative government; which could
not exist without it. Strike it out of our po
litical system and you could not elect a repre
sentative to this House, whose enemies might
not manage to avoid his election, and render
it a ui'-re farce. In view of thuwimportaut
truth, those people were admoni-'fied by the
Governor not to eotttole themselves triih theerpectii-
tion of defeating the ratification of Vie constitution
by a subsetflient vote; for although he was in fa
vor of submitting it to the p -ople for their ap
proval or rejection, he did not know the con
vention woum so decide, ana there was no
power to control their discretion.
These nJmonitio is, and the great truths on
which they were found ed, were unheeded, and
we are now invt kid to treat thm as idle
babblings, and political heresies. For myself.
I am w llliug to test this objection by such
I pass to the charge of fraud, which may
be numbered as objection third. Fraud iu
the election of d -legates to the convention,
aud fraud generally ; for I believe 6ome affect
to consider everything connected with the
convention, from the enactment of the law
for the eh ction of the delegates to the end of
their labors, and the entire wrk of their heads
aud hands as so' led with fraud. I believe
one gentleman Mr. GniixoEii said the Le
compton constitution w covered all over with
fraud, and epottel u-ith corruption.1'
This is a grave charge. It is easily made.
and frequently bard to prove. It is a legal
aphorism that fraud must Is; proved and not
presumed. It is founded in good sense, arid
must prevail as well iu political as injudicial
tribunals. I ask, then, where is the evidence
of fraud? It was not itithe enactment of a
wise-, just, and efficient law to preserve the
purity of the ballot-box, and the rights of
every bona file citizen: to prevent and punish
nil fraudulent and violent interference iu the
election, and secure a full and fair expression
of the popular will. It was not in the faith
ful attempt of the officers, und r that law, to
carry out its laudable intent, by making a
fair registry of all the voters in the Ti rrito
ry, for the purpose of securing them in the
exercise of fie elective franchise, and to ena
ble th"in to keep oil' aliens. non-rt titleiii.--,a;id
invaders of every description. It was not in
the willful obstinacy, fraud, aud threutemel
violence of the free-State men to prevent the
completion of the registry. Sur. ly gentle
men of the Republican party will not now
turn on their present co-laborer, late acting
Governor Stanton, by whom the apportion
ment of delegates w as mid.', and say that
was fraudulent, and "tftou art the ni'tn."' No,
gentlemen, though I may be prepared to lie
lieve much. I can't believe you will be guilty
of such ingratitude. It would be an accumu
lation of misfortunes on him. too grievous to
be borne; and iu the bitterness of his anguish
well might he exclaim, " save me from my
Was there fraud iu the election of delegates
to the convention? There is uo proof of it.
And in nil the investigation of illegal voting
in Kansas, I am not aware that any attempt
hns been madi to ferret out illegal votes in
this ( lection, for the reason, I suppose, that
the registry was an ample prob ction. But,
even it it be conceded that fraudulent votes
were cast, the fact would not, in legal phrase,
be cause for challenging the array, or setting
'aside the verd'et of the jury; annulling the
convention and avoiding its act-, any more
than it would give cause for annulling the
present House of Representatives, or declar
ing its nets void, because illegal vote's may
have Iwen cast in the election of its members;
a tiling w hich probably occurs to some extent
in every popular election. Nor would it in
validate the e lection of an individual dele

not greate r than the number of legal vot. s

Tiie Quackery of Benevolence.
The Rev. John Gullivar, of Philadelphia, is
the Secretary of the "American Systematic
Beneficence Society," which proposes to col
lect ten million of dollars from children in the
Sabbath Scfiools, by the issue of stock cer
tificates at twenty-five cents each. The fol
lowing is from the prosptctus which this rev
erend gentleman has put forth to the public :
"Stockholders are guaranteed to receive
one hundred times as much as they put in,
(Mark 10: 29,30.) Those who continue to pay
into the Fund as much as six cents a week. for
three years in succession, to be Life Members
of the American Systematic Beneficence So
ciety. Those who do this for six years, to be
Honorary Managers for life. Those who dp
this for ten years, to be Honorary Vice Pn si
Presidents for Life. Thce w ho do this (from
love to Christ) while they live, will have a
fret admission, through the gates, into the Heavenly
VUy, a tnow-tchue rote, a heavenly harp, a crown
of gold, and a seat at the right hand of the final
We can imagine nothing better calculated to
bring religion intocoutempt than such trans
parent and blasphemous quackery as this.
The Reverend Mr. Gulliver may be a very
honest person, and may intend to -nake a ve ry
honest and prope r use of the money wh ch he
proposes to collect, but we should want very
different evidence of his integrity from any
afforded by this prospectus. We trust sp cial
pains will he taken by those interested to put

A Powerful Dredge.
We visite d the steam-dredge ZaMzji at the
Long Uock, Jersey C;ty, in company witu a
distinguished corps of engineers aud oth ts
ye-ste-rday. The machine is a rotary dredger,
capable of digging iu any depth, up to 25 feet.
and can be raisi d aud lowered at all times
without throwing it out of gear, or stoppiug
the engine a desideratum sought for during
the last century by all engaged in dredging
operations. The machine Jiad been operating
for some hours, aud had unfortunately struck
a rock, aud thereby crippled three of the
buckets; but, with praiseworthy perseverance
her proprietors continued the work, and with
watch in baud her operations we re closely
scrutinized. The rt sult iu 44J minutes, by
actual measurement of the scow, showed 245
vards, or at the rate of 3,370 yards in teu
hour?. This stupendous pe'rformauce can be
realizi d when it is reflected that one cubic
vard contains three ordinary cart loads. Add
to the above re'sult 25 per cent for the addi
tional woikof the crippled buckets, and the
astonishing rate of 5.200 yards is shown iu
ten hours! truly an accomplishment worthy
of its name. The machine appears to be par
ticularly suited to large works by Govern
ment, such as the mouth of the Mississippi, to
clean flats, tc. Sew York Journal of Com

Ve learn from Mr. Kirk, who left St. Louis
on .Sunday evening, that the Ohio and Missis
sippi It eilroad has sustained serious damage
by the rain on Saturday and Sunday. All
the streams had swollen tremendously nnd
done immense damage to private aud public
property. T'ie train bud to come to a halt
twice oast of Vincennes, and between Mitchell
and Seymour full a mile of the track had
been washed olf ; the cars could not pass this
point, and the Eastern and Western trains
chang- d trips. The passengers who should
have arrived early yesterd.iy morning nrssi d
the connecting train ut Seymour and had to
wait for that due here at 1 o'clock.
The ferryboat, in crossing tlie river with the
passengers, their baggage, and the mails, was
tossed about by the storm and in imminent
dtng'-r. Great alarm prevailed among the
passengers. She was finally lande-d at Port Ful

Accident to Jlr. J. XV. fir ay.
We regret to learn that Mr. Gray, the editor
and proprietor of the l'laindealrr, has met
with an accident which has deprived him of
the sight of one eye. It appears that on
Thursday eveningMr. Gray was standing near
his little son whilst the latter was exploding
percussion caps on a tov gun. A portion of
one of the cap-, in bursting, entered the right
eye of Mr. Gray, a v ry 1 t;le to the right and
below the center of th pupil, passing entirely
through the cornea, giwng a five discharge to
the iitpjeons humor, and lodging in the in
t rior chambers of the eye.
Owing to the peculiar shape, of the piec,
the ep rating surgeons found it very dillicult
to r move it, but linally suceeedtd.
We synipatlrz'i deeply with Mr. Gray in
this serious afIlie.tio:i. a:id hope he will soon
be able to return to his duties. Cleveland ller

Tlie Literary Attractions of
Or, A Plea for the Word of God, con
sidered as a Classic.
BT LE BOY J. HAI.8ET, D.D.
1 vol. V.Mno. $1 25.
In the following page it Is proposed to present an
outline of what may be called the incidental attrac
tions of the Bible to et forth its claims, both aa a
classic and as a book of general education. Regard
ed simply as a book of learning, of taste and genius,
of history and eloquence, It has exerted an influence
which canuot be too highly estimated, and commends
itiself tn every cultivated understanding. It is the
b'Mik of our learning, not less than our religion; the
basis of 01 r civilization, not less than our salvation
It has moulded into shape, it has quickened into life
the whole body of our secular learning. as well as our
theology: it has breathed its own vital spirit into all
our science, literature, legislation, philosophy, and so
cial and political institutions.
It is these attractions, which may be felt and ap
preciatcl even by the irreligious and worldly mind
ed, which we propose t group together In one distinct
and connected view. Our object will be to speak of
the Book of Cod as a production of inspired genius
and classic taste; to reveal some-thing ef iu immeas
urable wealth, as a field of knowledge and a mine of
wisdom, a model ef eloquence, a master-piece of poe
sy, a text book of instruction ; and thus to render it,
so far as we shall bo able, attractive to all.
