Then, he .a anger, then, he saw
ground foralarm; then, he saw vorse
than disunion itself in the pros
pect of the future. Now, the same
getitinan says, amidst hll the superad
ded.dangers of. the present period, "I
have made no slavery speeches in Con
gress and do not mean to make them.
Property is timid: and slave property
above all. It is not right to disturb
the qietude of the owner, to harass
him with groundless apprehensions. It
is a private wrong to disturb a single
individual by making him believe, un
truly, that his property is insecure. It
becomes a public evil to disturb a whole
community. It creates a general un
easiness, generates animosities, deran
ges business, and often leads to hasty
and improvident legislation." How
charmingly philosophical! He is afraid
of producing excitement by making sla
very speeches in Congress; then why,
does he undertake to deliver anti-slave
ry speeches in the bosom of the slave
States of the South. If this sort of
propery be so timid, then why go near
it to alarm! If "it is a public evil to
disturb a whole community," then
how dare he to disturb the whole slave
- holding community of the South by
keeping up this fierce agitation in their
midst? Why disturb them still more
by presuming to hold out open encour
agement to their enemies to prosecute
their dire schemes of hostility against
them, in despite of the noble teachings
of a Cass, a Buchanan, a Dallas. and a
Dickinson and others?
But I assert that it is not true, in
point of fa'ct, that Mr. Benton has not
"ma-le slavery speeches in Congress."
In his better days, when the pro-slave.
ry side of the question was the strong
side-when yet he had not forfeited
forever, the confidence and kindness of
the South, by his opposition to Texan
annexation-his heartless persecution
of several of her favorite sons-his op
position to the Mexican treaty, by Wihich
Caiifornia and New Mexico were both
acquired-his flagitious protocol move
ment, notoriously set on foot for the
double purpose of bringing about a for
feiture of our valuable possessions on
the -Pacific, and disgracing the lamen
ted, respected, almost idolized Polk, by
an impeachment;---then, he did find it
convenieng to pro-slavery speeches
fierce, furious, and fire-brand pro-slave
ry speeches; of which I will give you
here a few charming extracts. I quote
still from the speech en Foote's resolu
tions. Here are thle extracts:
"Sir, I regard with admiration, that
is to say with wonder, the sublime mor
ality of those 'whio cannot hear tihe ab
stract contemplation of slavery at a dis
tance of five hundred or a thousand

&ore of that arraignment anon. For
he present, see what Mr. Barton said 1
>f our present accuser as a sectional ag- I
tator and an enemy to the Union. Mr.
Barton, on the occasion referred to,
Foote's resolutions being still under
hscussion,) took it upon himself, in
he first place to make a sort of profert
n curia of his lusty colleague; describ
ng hini as "a minor chieftain' of the
Democratic party of that period, "of
iot much renown for either policy or
ivar; who, not satisfied with the scalps
ic had taken in the late campaign, fell
iuddenly and unexpectedly upon the
>risoners of the minority, and commen
aed a scene of massacre of the living,
ind dragging the dead from the grave;
!vcn rescalped those who had been
icalpedand buried by other armsmore
valorous than his own,during the exist
ance of the by-gone war. And thus,'
continues lie, "one arrogantly speaking
ror the whole West threw the firebrand*
among the members of this body, and
lighted up the flames of this partisan
warfare, of sectional prejudice, local an
inosity, and civil war." ' * * * * I
Mr. Barton continues :
"But as this debate has been convert
ed into a mere partisan warfare of sec
tional prejudices and civil discord, and
as this war has degenerated into a mere
relentless massacre of prisoners, sacking
of towns, and robbing of graves. I will
shield myself under the great funda
mental principles of the Constitution1;
and, with the light of the farewell ad
dress of the Father of his Country in
my hand, and with something of the
little liberty still remaining to the minor
ity, carry back the war into the ene
my's country, so far as to attain that
indemnity for the past which can only
consist in recapturing our lost property,
and that security for the future which
can only consist in placing our motives
above the reach of the assailant; not
hoping to conquer in him the propensi
ty to violate the rights of others, or to
destroy in him the ability to (10 further
mischief, while backed and sustained
by such a majority as that to which lie
has attached himself,"
Now comes the Catiline figure:
"It is true we had been solemnly
warned in the farewell address of the
Father of his Country to the people of
the United States, in the most anxious
and parental soliditude, that Catilines
would at iso in day's to come, in .these
thrice happy States, and that dema
gogues and aspirants would spring up
among us, whose objects woud be to
gratify their inordinate and uinhallow
ed ambition ; whose means cf mischief
would be to inflame sectional prejudices
andi local animosities in one portion of
the Union against each other; to repro
scnt their interests to be 'different and
inconsistent with each other ; and to
cultivate and cherish the young devils
of discord to tear out the vitals of the
Union and scatter them to the dogs of
civil war and horrid anarchy ; that such
Catilines might reign as champions 'of
their deluded section of the Union,- and
enjoy'* a little illegitimate and parricidal
renown. Of these, above all other en-1
emies, the Father of his Country ha
warned us to be on our gun .'

The Next Congress.
One of the most important events connect
d with the very ex:stence, we may say, of
he present administration, are the elections
vhich are yet to come off for the ensuing
"ongress. There are, at present, 72 Dem
crate, 82 Whigs and 10 Free Soilers elect
d, and elections, are still to be held in Ma
yland, North Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana,
i'exRs, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky

sland, one in Massachusetts and one in

ire to be chosen by slave-state.;, and if those
itates will be true to their rights there will
)e a majority, in the corner house as there is
nthe Senate, against the2 present adminaie
ration. Some doubtsi have Leen expre.ed
as to the course w hich General Taylor will
aursue on the great and excitigg rueio?,
.ouching the liberties, safety and cnstit ution
il rights of the South. We apprehend there
:an be no doubts at all on the subject. Gen.
raylor has entirely surrendered the Govern
rnent into the hands of a niost decided Vhig
Cabinet and will, on every point, be controll
3d by the vote of that cabinet. Strange as
it may appear, and hostile to.tbe very safety
)f the country, he has determined to take
that course. All that remains for the slave
states is to make the most strenuous exer
tions in every district to elect Democrats in
tead of Whigs, and, by placing the majori
ty in the hands of the Democratic party,
control the action of the administrat ion on
those great questions essential to the very
Existence of the South. If the slave-states
are not true to themselves how can they ex
pect to have friends on their side who ill be
true to thema Southaern "wvhiga vote wvith
northern whigs. Northern wvhigs never vote
with the South for the protection of South
ern Rights. WVe may hold conventions, we
may make appeals to the South, we may en
deavor to consolidate and unite in defence of
all that is dear to us, it wvill all be unavailing
-our true safety is in the ballot-box, it is to
rally the whole force of the South at elections
and sendl Democrats and -not Whigs to Con
gress If the eminent and active men, the
true and reliable mn of the South will
agree to take the stump, appeal every where
to the people, and shew the magnitude of the
ruestion at issue the people wvill do what is
right..- Southern whigs may be disposed to
vote right on Southern questions, but influ
cnces are brought to bear upon them wvhich
paralyzes all the good that their votes can se
cure. W ith a majority, not a violent or fact
tious majority, against the present admninistra
tion in the House of Representatives there
is a check at once upon that odious Wilmot
Proviso, and on all measures which are in
tended to outrage the South ; nothing will be
left for the Cabinet to decide upon-as to the

and his new allies will split on the sub.

to oppose the Wilmot proviso ,while
his friends at the North, the freesoilers,
will insist upon its passage, so that these
loving allies will have a fight the moment
the bull is in motion. We can conceive
no situation more pitiable, more deplora.

Col. Benton may be, we exonerato from
the folly of supposing that he can carry a
single electoral vote for the Presidency.
We apprehend this year will scarcely

Europe our deltors instead of creditors,
and we should sensibly feel the effects of
this depression were it not for the great
surplus of produce which will enable us
to live comfortably on less profits. It is,
however, at this moment of flat and un
profitable prospects that oun STATE should
be active, in improving its condition and
establishing its independence. Our geol
og'ical researches for coal, iron, gold and
ot her valuable minerals and metals should
be active and energetic; wherever a furn

roads are doing wvonders in the Northern
States, paying ten per cent under greatly
reduced tolls, and our rneighbor, Nprth
Carolina is pushing rapidly ahead wvith
her enterprises. We have only to devel.
