SENATOR DIXOVS SPEECH.
W " T"-' 've UP ,t03l f our space to-day to thepub-vvat-w
tIk ation of a speech lately delivered by Mr. Dixon,
"".'Iv. whig Senator from Kentucky. The Reporter, the
democratic paper printed at Henderson, the place of
Mr. Dixon's residence, says of this speech, that "it
is O'paper that we moat cheerfully endorse, as can
every national man in this broad Union. Its prin
ciples and positions are invulnerable. It coming as
"'' -it'docs from a high source from a man who has
L . .lcng been in public life from a man whose pure
' J, ,' patriotism has ever stood above suspicion from a

' ' '.."y , ly it must have its influence upon the public mind
at this truly important era of our country's history.
. Senator Dixon having all his life tesn associated
.with, and a prominent member of, the late Whig
( rartyi might give unscrupulous men a pretext, (lim
ey though it be, for impugning his motives for hav
ing taken this step. If so, let all who read or hear
each imputation Tellect, that those who resort to
" jjuchan unjust and unfair course do so in default of
- -r argument to combat the high positions he has taken
m Una most able, patriotic and timely effort
Throughout the entire speech thcauthor maintained
a lofty bearing, as if under a deep conviction of the
t- 4 -importance of giving a proper direction to the pub-
. " lie mind, in view of suchrn honorable adjustment
of 'conflicting- opinions and interests in the differ-
' ent sections of the Union as might restore tranquil
ity to the country, and secure thereby the adoption
of a line of public policy -mutually satisfactory to
f.ihe North and the South, to the East and the West,
L.iu.u UiUtuj perpetuate una glorious union, WllU
all- its beiufita and blessings, to the latest posterity.
We can say, in very truth, that Senator Dixon
t was not controlled by any motive other than that
prompted by the loftiest patriotism in view of the
' promotion of the country's good. For that noble
.purpose this important step was taken but not
' "without calm, deep and sober meditation, and a

it is to bo doubted if any country is so inviting to

inconveniences as all new lands have, but its re

SPEECU OF HON. ARCH'D DIXON,
At a meeting of the Democratic and Naiipnal men
of the county of Henderson. Delivered at the
Court Souse, in the City of Henderson,on Alon
day the 2M of September, 1855.
Mr, President: England and France, long ene
mies, and waging' the fiercest conflicts with each
other, ire now united as allies againstthe ali-grasr
ing power of the Czar of Russia, which seeks 10
break down the balanco ot power'in Europe and
render subordinate to it all other powers. So the
old line Whigs and Democrats, long divided upon
questions of minor importance, are compelled from
circumstances of the times, to lay aside the subjects
of their former divisions and strifes, and to meet
together on a common platlorm embracing in its
great principles the preservation of the Union of the
states ot the Constitution ot the United states
and the rights of the citizens of all and every sec
tion of our country, as secured by the Federal Con
stitution. To aid and assist, in the maintenance of
these rights he was willing to blot out all former
party distinctions toforgetall former party names
and to Dura upon the altar ot his country an his
-former party prejudices. Indeed, he said that the
great Whig party!' with which he had been assoc.
ated from th&time he was old enough to take any
part in politics, had ceased to exist as a political
organization; but the principles, for which it had
battled for more than a tiuarter of a eentur? were
'stilt living principles they .lived in the hearts of
thousands oi patriots, ana would continue to live
there sa longvas' there were men found to love their
.country, and to aid in the defence ot its institutions.
. His' party, he said, had been nearly absorbed by
the American party, which had risen up on Us ru-
' jns. To' this party he had never attached himself
-not because he douDteu us patriotism or devotion
to the Union, for it numbered among its supporters-
seme of the best and awest men ot the country
but because he distrusted from the beginning, its
power to do good,, or to sava the country in its
hour of uanger and extremity. I'his distiust-hsd
q )L been jesseneu, uui connrm;a dv rcenr, aevoip
uients made by the American party in tho free
States. He said that his sympathies had been, and
were now, if not with the American party aoutb
with those who composed it. They were, most of
them, his old political friends they were true men
true to the old Whig party so iqbe as it had a
political orgauizition true to the great principles
which that party combined, and abSve al', true to
the country. They were the men who, with the
immortal Ulay at their head, knew no iS orth and
no South msu of whom it might be said tint all
the ends they aimed at were t'leir country's, their
God s and truth s. True to their ancient instincts
they had made an hones: effort, at Philadelphia, t3
build up a great national party a party founded
upon the Constitution and its sacred guarantees
that would be true at once to the people of the
North and in the South that, looking to the Un
ion of the States as the great. palladium of Ameri
can freedom, would protect the right3 of the people
of every section of this great confederacy, against
the aggressiODSol those, who, trom whatever mo
tive, might see to destroy them: and in resisting
such aggressions, feel that each effort they made
was to uphold the Constitution and preserve the
Union well knowing, as they did, that tlje great
object ot the Constitution ot the United States and
ot the union of the States was the protection of
state rights and ot individual rights, and that every
blow aimed at them was a blow aimed at the Con
stitution and the Union. Could they have succeed
ed in their noble and patriotic effort the country
would have been saved; but alasl for the times
the all embracing spirit of patriotism which ant
mated the noble and immortal Webster, and which
he imparted to all glasses of the people in the
North whilst he lived, (if it did not die with him
has ceased to guide tho political counsels of tho
JNorth, ana iett the true men ot the country with
out the support that is necessary to stve the Con
stitution and the Union.
Fanaticism and a blind and bitter hostility to the
people ot the south and southern institutions as
the foundation of all their political movements.
Resistance to the slave power, as they call it, when
the slave power has never encroached upon any
right, political or otherwise, belonging to the peo
ple ot the North, has become a cardinal principle
.in nearly all of their political rituals; aud so great
is the extent lo which they carry their opposition
to the South and her institutions that on the 4th
day of July, laoi a day forever sacred to the
cause of freedom throughout the world a paity
beaded by the notorious Garrison amidst bacchu-
"nalian'shouts and 'wildhurfahs, burnt' the Constitu-
lion ot the United States in the streets ot Boston
declaring that they preferred the freedom of the
Southern slave to the preservation of a Constitution
which authorized his servitude and secured his ser
vice to the owner. I have said that the Southern
members of the American party made a noble and
patriotic enort, in their convention at V niladelphia,
tobuild up a national party a party which, know
ing no geographical distinction, would be as ready
to defend and protect the Constitutional rights of
the citizens of Massachusetts as those of Louisiana,
and in the deicnco of which the citizen's of the
extreme North and of the extreraa South migLt
unite. But, unfortunately for them and their
country, their effort proved a signal failure. In
stead ot a great national party to defend the Con
stitution and protect the Uniou, two great sectional
parties, like tlie fabled goddess that sprang Irom the
brain of Jupiter, leapt lull armed to do the country
evil, from the deliberations of the convention.
Fourteen Northern and Western States united on a
common platform in opposition to the Constitutional
rights of the citizics ot the Southern States whilst
the fifteen slave States with California to assist
them, united upon a platform iu defence of these
rights, and a3 opposite in principle to that put forth
by the Northern States as the light is to darkness;
aud so utterly hostile are the parties to each other
that a Union of them on national principles can
never be effected.
That this separate org.m'zjtiou of the whole of
the Northern Stales upjn a c mmon platform iu
opposition to the cjcstitutional rights of the peo
ple of the South promises uo good to the country","
all must admit; but on the contrary menaces the
Union with almost certain destruction.
For, said he, should tho contest forr power in
thi future elections of the country bo betweten
these two organizations of the know nothings
formed by the Phdidelphia Convention, it wemd
amount to nothing more nor less than a contest
between the Northern and Southern States. The
one warring upon the rights of the other and the
other defending those rights to the last extremity.
That such a contest will prove mo3t disastrious to
the whole country none will deny. But biking;
to the consequences that wdl grow out of it, ns
Southern and nationial men, what can the South
hope and expect? VVU not that worst of all cala
mities that can possibly befall the country, the elec
tion ot some abolitionist to tne resiaes.cy, ue rue
result? Would there be even the possibility of
preventing it. What free State, unless, perhaps,
California, would vote with tho Southern know
nothings on the Southern p'atform? Not one and
who does not know that the South would be in a
deed minority in the electoral colleges without the
aid and assistance of some of tho free Slates to vote

very and'the Sjuthern p'a form. Whatgto 1 ttur , -san
tb'emericsrrprUVtuuS. divided thus opposeu on
great Coistitutioi al questions,- do the country?
In this, its hour .of peril and'ot dangerj when the
united efforts of all the patriotic and national men
of every tection are required to save the country,
. what aid, what. succor can the American party af
ford? The Northern metribers, in conjunction with
freesoilers and abolitionists; aiming ponderous blows
at the Constitution to. destroy lasvery, and the
Southern members arming themselves with the.
fires of bigbtry and religious intolerance to crush
out foievcr the religious rights rights sacred to
every freeman, of a large portion ot American ci
The question is. not whether the platform put
forth by the-A neiinn party1 South, on" the sulject'
of slavery is a good one, or even better ihm that
-which any other pirty-has put forth, and itisno
better than that put forth by the Democratic party,
but.it is what can the Amer.can party South, do
for the country in this; its time Of trouble -and of
danger? IIoW many members to Congress (an it
o'ect on this jilatfcrm? Can it elect any from the
free States? Can it carry a single free'State iu fa
vor of a candidate for die Presidency on its South
ern platform? These 'are questions which force
themselves on the minds of all true and national
men of the country. ' . t
He again repeated that from tha Amerisan party
the South and the country bad no hope. He did
not object to its Southern, platform -on the sub
ject ot hlavery. It was entirely national a-id all
that the South could require, but unfortunately
none of tho American party, in the free States
could be brought to it? support, and without their
aid the. American party, South, could' not help the
country. Could it carry along -with it every South
ern State, it could not prevent the election of an
abolition President without the aid of "some of the
Northern or free States, aud this -aid it could
not hope to get so long as it adberc3 to its present
platform; for even -New York, Pennsylvania and
New Jersey, states that wero thought ta sympa
thise with the American party, Suth, have, by
resolutions recently adopted, ratified the platform
of the Northern American anti-slavery party, and
placed the American patty of those States side by
side with the abolitionists and freesoilers, and the
American party of all the other free States, ex
cept California, in opposition to the institution of
slavery. Northern Janaticism, divided on all oth-
er"qrie3tioiis, ls'uhileil in "opposition to Southern
slavery. Its platform was no more slavery ter
ritory; no more slave Statetf tha abolition of slave
ry in the District of Columbia; tho abolition of tne
slave trade amopg.. the several States'where slave
ry exists; the repeal ot the fugitive slave law and
the reetqratjou of thexilfaraoui Missouri restric
tion. To accomplish all of these disastrous meas
ures to the cauntry tlie know nothing party, North,
were united in sympathy, as they would be in ac
tion, with ill! the other anti-slavery factions ; and
the American party, South, thus cut off from all
support from the Northern and free States, was
impotent to do good, and if strong at all, only to
dp 'e vil.
. iu the remark last made, he did not mean to
question tie patriotism ol the" members of the
American party, South; he knew their davotion to
the' country and their undying attachment to the
Union; but what could they do but divide with the
Democrstic party, in the election for Pretilent of
the United Statesand candidates for other offices,
the Southern votes; and thus weaken those who,
on principleaof sed-preservation and in defense of
acimmon right, should be united.
Iu addition to all this, said he, Protestant a3 he
was in all his feelings and in all his convictions,
lie could not subscribe to that portion .of the plat
form which proscribes Catholics for their religious
opinions lie saw no good to -grow out of it, but
incalculable evils to the people and to the free in
sti utlons of the conn'ry. By it Protestantism
was already in the fitld against Catholicism, acd
tie war is not one of conflicting principles, but
conflicting -sects, arjd theconiest for power is to-bo
changed irom what it once was mere political
into that ot a politico religious struggle, in which
the worst pass'ous ot our nature are to' be aroused
to the most fearful intensity, and the' true spirit
and genius of the government lost sight of in tha
three and maddening strife of religious bigots
contending for religious ascendency upon tne po
litical arena. If the objection to Catholics ex
tended only to such a3 acknowledge the temoral
power ot the t ope, he should give it ins lull ap
probation: but to those who not only di claim such
a power, out refuse, in any respect whatever, to
submit to it, he did not think tho objection should'
.i.'ply. Those who acknowledge the temporal -ir.-
uueuce 01 any -rviu, loreigu poiuuuuu ur power,
of whatever character or organization, to control
their political opinions or actions, could not re
ceive his support as candidates for office, either
under the State or Federal governmeni; but in
regard to mere matters of religion, the profession
of particular tenets, whether right or wrong, is a
matter that concerns themselves, their consciences
and their God. And, as an individual, he would
deprecate all political proscription for tlie holding
of such opinions. The history of the world proves
that religious bigotry and intolerance have been
couGned to no particular church or sect; and that
every religious organization is more or ' less hostile
to all others that do not ngree with it The per
secution at one time of ihe rroteatmts by the
Catholics-, and at a subsequent period of the Catho
lics by the Proti slants, shows hqw fearful a thing
it 13 to couuuu me pjiiuuki loner ui govern
ment to the bands ot religious bigots. It was the
exercise of such a power, and by such men, that
kindled the grim tires of persecution on the plains
Of Smithfield when the Catholics werein power,
and afterwardswhen tlie Protestants got the pos
session of the government, drenched the country
in Catholio blood. Tne same tell spirit that stimu
lates the Catholic to persecute the Protestant, stim
ulates the Protestant to persecute the Catholiq
and whilst it snatches the sword from theCatbolic
scabbard with the one hanl, it seizes that of the
Protestant with the other, and with a .merciless
fury plunges each into the heart of the v.ctim.
Among the chief glories-of the Federal Consti
tution is that provision which secures to every citi
zea tho liberty of conscience and the right to wor-
hip God in his own way and at tr.s own time, and
if the framers of the Constitution were right in se
curing thcsi privileges, those who exercise them
according to the spirit of the Constitution cannot
be politically criminal, and I .cannot but think that
all political organizations that have for their object
tho political proscription 01 men nr ino conscien
tious d.scharge of religious dutie3, wholly di con
nected with politics, are wrong in priLciple and
tend to the s ibver3iou of the government.
Tlie hope and theexpectmcy, niy, the very safe
ty of the government, is in the separation of the
political from tha religious power, and so sensible
were the -trainers of the Constitution that this
should be done, that they exproisly declarred tha
Congress shall make no Jaw respecting an establish
ment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof; and that no religiousteit shall ever te re
quited as a qualification to an office of public .
trust under the United States. If this principle,
a3 declared in the Constitution, is correct it ought
not to bo lost sight of any more by the people than
by their Rspresentatives in CoLgress, aLd should
be held as sacred, and be as strictly observed by the
voters at the ballot-box, as by those whom they se
lect to make their laws. Unless this -be the case,
people at the polls might declare that a religious
te3t should be required as a qualification for office,
while their representatives in Congress would feel
themselves restrained ftom carrying out their wnl
by the above provisions. Sjrely it cannot be dt -sirable
it cann t be wise it is not patriotic m
any political organiz .tion to ttimu ate action so op
posite in its character between ihe Representative
and his constituents, and especially when the secu
rity of our religious as well as our civil rights are

But without elaborating' these questions he
would return to the great question between the
North and South. He had shown that the Ameri
can party North had adopted tho freesoil and abo
lition platform, and that the Americanparty South,
-although.-sound.on the -subject of slavery, had no
power to help 'the" country' or to prevent the cov-
efhne it's filling into the hand3 of its worset ene
mies, the aDoutionists.
No. party could save - the
country who could not take-from the freesoil and
abohtion'pirty some qf the Northern or free States
lor if, as he had before shown, all the free States
vote together, they notpnly exceed the slave States
in number, but hare a majority of from forty to
fifty over them in the electoral colleges. That
the American party South can get "none of the
free Siates.unlcjs it abandons-its pro slavery plat
form nose will contend. That, it can or ever will
abandon this platform, none can 'believe; What
can the Democratic party do.? has it a national
platform and a national party, a platform reaching
from Maine to Giliibrnu and a party standing -on
that platform from one end of the Union to the
