Ordinance was adopted bv the unani
mous voles of all the Slates in Con
gres.. It covered every inch of terrilo

of the General Government.
In the same year the National Con
stitution was framed. Mr. Madison
declared it "wrong to admit in the Con-
ttitulioii the idea that there could be
property in man." No such word as
Slave or Slavery lound place in any
cf IM provisions All recognition of
the rightfulness of slaveholding, and
all national sanction of the practice,
was carefully evcluded from the instru
ment. In every clause which has been,
or can be construed as reterring to Sla
very, it is regarded as I he creature of
State legislation lor its existauce and
continuance. There is no trace in the
Constitution itselT, or in the debates of
its i'arnier., ot any expecation tor ap
prehension ol the institution or main
tenance of Slavery by national law, or
in national territory. No one anticipa
ted its ex:ention beyond the limit's ol
existing States. But the people required
additional" semieity. When, therefore,

time aimed fir the organisation of
government for this territory with a
vii-w to open it lor settlement snd cul
livation, the couutry was sstouned by
the demand of Siave Power for the ab
rogation of Missouri inohibition. At
lirt the demand wt heard with incred
ulous smszement, and then with una
ailing indignation. It availed nothing
to appeal to plighted faith; uothing to
appeal to ancient policy or Constitu
tional guaranties. The great dominant
power of Slavery demanded the sacrifice
of Freedom, and the obligation must
be made. The Missouri Piohibiuon wa
repealed, the Compromise of 1820, per
formed to the letiar; and far beyond
the letter, by the Free State, was bro
ken up end destroyed by Slave Sta'.e6

The pretences under which this
wrong was perpetrated, gave additional

It was boldly asserted that the pro-
hibiiion was uuconstitutioual Slavery
had been eiercised by the fust Congress
under the Constitution in the act fro
Tiding for continuing in full effect, the
ordinance 1787. The Constitution, in
express terms, had conferred on Con
gress the power to make all needful
rulss and regulation cooceming the
Territory oi the Uuilde Stutes. This
provision had beeu uniformly regarded
g authorizing atl uecesiary territorial
legislation. Almost every Congress
lud exercised the power, and almost
e very President had annroved its ex
ercue, I tie very persons who tleaieii
the power to prohibit Slaveir, asserted
the power to establish leiri.oral gov-
lemmeuls aud to define their depart

It was, also, insisted that the doc
trine of populur sovereignly required
the repeal ol the prohibition. This nas
a mere abuse of terms. The true idea
of popular soieruigety demands as i
primary essential candiliou the recug
iiiiiuu of inalienable personal rights.
there can be no genuine popular soer
eiguly where a portion ot the popula
lion is enslaved. Ihe prohibition ol
slavery is therefore a cecessary pre-re-quisile
to a real sovereignty ot the peo
ple. In the sense of the apologists lor
repeat, popular sovereignty signifies
nottiiug but the right of a

In all these things our own Stale has

The question of slavery, it ie almost
universally conceded, transcends in pre
sent importance all other political
questions of a national character. The
repeal of the Missouri Prohibition,
abrogating the Missouri Compromise,
opens a ue iv the w hole subject of the
relations of S'avery to Die Union, to
the Slates, and lo the Terriiores. lu
determinin g the true line of duty, ua
derthesecircumstances.it seems to be
the part of wisdom to recur to the tct
of the Founders of the Republic, and to
the principles of the Constitution. To
me these guiies seem to indicate a
plain path. It leads back to the orig
ina'.antional policy. That policy, I have
already remarked, whi'e it sanctioned
no outside interference with slavery in
Slave States.ron lemplateil no extension
of it beyond State limits, It regarded
slavery in all its relations as subject,!
clusively, to State legislation, and ab
solved the General Uoremmut (run;
all respoualbll liy, lor r.e cxieucn
continuance. Our renin: to ihut poli
cy should be signalujJ by tin reston
lion of the g iaraaty of freedom to in
Territories which have been deprived
of it by the retrograde legislation cf
Congress. Had the puuey oiigiakth
sdopted been persislenty pursued, 'hi
question slavery would have ceased
long since lo vex our co unci Is. Should
that policy be restored, may we not
confidently expect ihe lestoration.also,
of those relations of lurmony and good
will which cluracterizsd the era lor its
adoption, and that, l!ioiough repeul of all
