The Address of Southern Members of
Congress to their Constituents.
( Concluded from last week. )
It can then only be effected by this pros
tration of the white race ; and that would
necessarily engender the bitterest feelings

But the reverse would be the case between
the blacks of the South and the people of the
North. Owing their emancipation to them,
tbey would regard them as friends guardi
an, and patrons, and centre, accordingly,
all their sympathy in them. The people of
the Worth would not fail to reciprocate and
to favor them instead of the whites. Under
the influence of such feelings, and impelled
by fanaticism and love of power, they would
not stop at emancipation. Another step
would be taken to raise tbem to a politi
cal and social equality with" their former
masters, by giving them the right of voting
and holding public offices under the federal
government. We see the first step toward
it in the bill already alluded to to vest the
free blacks and slaves with the right to vote
on the question of emancipation in this Dis
trict But when once raised to an equality
tney would become me tast political asso
ciates of the North, acting and voting w'ith
them on all questions, and by this political
union between them, holding the white race
at the South in complete subjection. The
blacks, and the profligate whites that might
unite wim mem, wouia oecome me princi
Ttal recioients of federal offices and natron
age, and would, in consequence, be raised
above the whites of the South in the politi
cal and social scale. We would, in a word,
change conditions with them a degrada
tion greater than has ever yet fallen to the lot
of a free and enlightened people, and one
from which we could not escape, should e
mancipation take place, (which it certainly
will if not prevented,) but by fleeing the
homes of ourselves and ancestors, and by
abandoning our country to our former
laves, to become the permanent abode of j
disorder, anarchy, poverty, misery and
With such a prospect before us, the grav
st and most solemn question that ever
claimed the attention of a people is present
ed for your consideration : What is to be
done to prevent it ? It is a question for you
to decide. All we propose is, to give you
We, then, are of the opinion that the first
and indispensable step, without which no
thing can be done, and with winch every
thing may be, is to be united among your
selves, on this, the greatest and most vital
of all questions that ever have, or probably
ever will be, submitted for your considera
tion. ; The want cf union and concert in
reference to it has brought the South, the
Union, and our system of government to
their present perilous condition. Instead
of placing it above all others, we have made
it subordinate, not only to mere questions
of policy, but to the preservation of party
ties and ensuring of party success. As high
as we hold a due respect for them, we hold
them subordinate to this and other questions
involving your safety and happiness. Un
til they are so held by the South, the North
will not believe that you are in earnest in
opposition to their encroachments, and they
Will continue to follow, one after another,
until the work of emancipation is finished.
To convince them that you are, you must
prove by your acts that yon hold all other
questions subordinate to it ' If you become
bnited, and prove yourselves in earnest, the
.North will be brought to a pause, and to a
ealcoiattai of conseqnenses ; and that may
lead to a change of measures and the adop
tion of a eoarse of policy that may quietly
and peaceably terminate this long conflict'
between two -Motions. If it should not,!

As the assailed, you would stand justified
by all laws, human and divine, in repelling
a blow so dangerous, without looking to con
sequence, ana to resort to all means neces
sary for that purpose. . Your assailants, and
not you, would be responsible for conse
auenceS. fit would be for them, and not
for you, to count the value of the Union.
Without your rights, it would be worse than
useless a sword to assault, and not i

ly entreat you to be united, and for that pur
pose adopt all necessary measures. Be
yond this, we think it would not be proper:

We hope, if you should unite with any
