Is this not tntra-Abolition ground? The

Compromise; introduced Slavery into Kan

We charge the Democracy with being
in favor of WHITE SLAVERY; ofreduc
ing every man to bondage who is poor,
because the leading Democratic paper in
the Union the Richmond Enquirer
clearly and distinctly avows the doctrine,
and no Democratic Convention, or news
paper, or speaker, ever dared to ropudiate
the sentiments of tho Enquirer. Poor
while Democrats! lloarkon to the fearful
words of Mr. Buchanan's organ in Vir

"Make the laboring man the slave of one

and never hut a Northern Congo Demo

Tht latter are dumb asses before their
masters, and would suffer the horrers of
the inquisition before they would bray a
word sgainst such derogatory .language.
How do the moelmnios and laboring men
of the North relish such doctrines? Are
they leady to be white slaves to return
to their "natural and normal condition'' df
slavery? Do they wish to bend their
backs and be bettriddea by Wise, Toombs,
Keilt, and such like enemies uf liberty
"because the riding dots tliem good!";
Are they debased enoogh for "iho whip,!

the settled doctrine of the Congo Democ
racy in the North, as it is now among the
three hundred thousand slave holdeis of
the Souih, in fifty years from this tin.e,
slavery will exist in every State in tbe Un

as nogro slavery. The Dred Scott decis

In a speech in the United States, Senate

It exists only by local fute.
