For thorough prevention the metropolis
would need a thorough reconstruction of its
drainage ; but without waiting for any plans
so tedious, the commissioners suggest imme
diate steps to improve existing arrangements,
to cleanse out sewers, ami augment the
drought of water. Tbey do not recom
mend any renewed use of cholera hospitals,
bit suggtst the much more effective meas
ure of providing effectual medical attend
ance at the houses of patients. The very
destitute can be taken to the fever-ward of
the union work-houses. The non-contagion
which is established on very strong ev
idence, is most important for iu moral con
sequences; on the former visitation of the
cholera, the abandonment of the sick was
common, fear of infection being the mo
tive. The admitted absence of contagion
greatly facilitates the treatment of the sick
in every way. It will be desirable, as no
doubt it will be provided, to give the medi
cal officers authority to enforce the needful
ar.atory regulations on all places that coma
within their observation. It is to be ob
served that the regulations and improvements,
here indicated, will not ba useless, even
should the cholera disappoint the general
fear and spare this land ; the samo plans
will be of the greatest and most direct utili
ty in counteracting fever and other general
ailments induced by bad atmosphere. Spectator.

the Highlands, remarkable lor the amount of
his stock and sides, whilst boasting one night
over his cups, of his doings at Falkirk, and
the vast number or his nocks, was interrup
ted by one of his companions with the re
mark : " V hy, you are making yourself as
great a man aa the Duke of Wellington."
"The Dukeol Wellington! replied tlie
oilier, with a look of astonishment, not un
linctured with pity."1 " It was easy for Uie
Duke of Wellington to nut down his men
at Waterloo, seme men here and some there,
up and down tlie fields; but let him try to
put down ten thousand sheep, forbye black

he'll make a very confused business of it."

Gov. Johnson, of La., ha seat a long message
to the Legislature. He is for the war; say it
will remodel f ie institutions of Mexico upon
the great principles of human progress. The
reason he amigns for the war is the incapacity
of Mexico to assert the dignity of human na
ture, and that, therefore, her renovation is fated
to be brought about by seed sown by the hand
ef violence. Hear him:
what is the matter with them. They continue I what you cau spare, and then take the rest, and

Allow me now to take np the question
which I proposed to treat upen, What produ
ced this War? The answer must bo anticipa
ted by everybody. It was Slavery. "Another ab

when we learn that elavery at tho present mo
ment is taxing the people beyond all former pre
cedent, when we know that wo are spending
this year nearly three time, as much as was
spent in the last war to maintain freedom upon
the seas, in another war to maintain slavery up
on the land,ie it not time to speak oat T I know
that there have been prophet upon th. moun

The cloud has extended in dimensions, and set

been again sounded, but thedull sleepers say, Not

The cause of tho war was slsvery. Annexa
tion, the first step. Were a mm to take np
the eorrespeadeace of tho Government from
184.1 to 1844, he would suppose the great inter
ests of the country to be slave-breeding and
stave-holding. Tho extension and perpetuation
of slavery was the cause of the war.
"The rVcretary of State, writing to Mr.
Marphv.our Charge in Texas, on Jan. 16, 1844.
aays, speaking of slavery :
"'1 will only add. that if Texts should not
be attached to the I'nited States, she cannot
maintain that institution ten years, and proba
bly not bail last time. "
there was the proposition. If we only let
Texas alone ; if we attend to our own business),
slavery would die out, and liberty would sue
ceed in five years. That was Ihe attitude in
which we were placed. There was th. Ameri
can nation, a bumble republic, bringing into ex
istence tho bumble announcement, that "All
men are born equal, not content with the an
nouncement, of it. bat appealing to th. God of
Heaven to attest th. ndelity with which they
made the announcement, and ths interrity with
which they would sustain it ; and .re that gen
eration had eatirely passed from tho stage, we
find it carrying on a crusade in foreign lands,
and stretching out robber bands to take home
tha provinces of a aUter republic, lest the boon
of freedom should be enjoyed by their bond'
men, and the withering aurse of slavery should
die out of their midst. That is tho position
in which oir government placed as, and tney
hare said this, in no equivocal terms, over and
over again."
The Sretary of State also declared that the
establishment of a Government prohibiting the
existence of elavery there, woald be one of the 1
greatest calamities which could befall the coun
try. Some of yon may say that thin doe. not
belong to Massachusetts. "It may be very good
talk for your New Hampshire Locofocos, but
, ... WH. . a 44... O..M.MW.I
of the U ailed State, and th. Execativ. have
declared that that was the policy they followed,
that was the reason they laid down aa influenc
ing their conduct. And the whole country fol
lowed, the whole resource, of tre country have
been pledged; the arms, the men, the force, of
the nation are being employed to-day to carry
out theoe very principle, and measures. Your
Massachusetts regiment have gon. there to car
ry out these doctrines and to prevent tho cap
lamity of n free nation. Our Government
pledged themselves that they would not allow
it to succeed without tne most strenuous elorts
to prevent It; and what efforts more strenuous
than sending men to hght th. battles .f slave

is a national policy; and tho whol. nation are

disasters overtake us, oae ruin will Involve as

on. from another. Una welfare or one rum is
our lot; and a eonuuoav. destiny ia onr Inheri
tance.
That these transactions might not b. wanting
in atrocity, H was all in th. nam. of freedom.
It was to extend tho are. or freedom, to extend
our free institutions; because we were a free and
Christian people. Aye, and we are sending our
missionaries abroad, and 1 suppose yon have ia
this city societies which ask that yon will give
of vour abundance or vour oenurv to send the
gospel off to heathen lands that have not got
aay free institutions. I would ask wh.ro they
propose to senat tho missionaries? What place
so loot and reprobate as te require such a gospel
as ours? Have they lound an island in the soli
tudes . of tho ocean. mountain la the bosom
of Asia. or a rock in tho deeert of Africa, in
habited by a nation or tribe so forgetful of God,
so lost to every high,' ard generous, and honora
ble impulse of humanity, that they are stretcn-
Ing out their bands to extend the empire of
chaise and slavery T If they bay. got such a
place as that, give them something; bat see to It
that yon do not give them more than half of
your national rulers, the first principleo ef thai
religion which is to send "deliverance to the
captive, and the opening of tho prison doors to
them that are bound."
The war was commenced and is carried on in
behalf of slavery. Have the people then no
Interest in the matter? Are the free States con
tent to be qniet?
Do the citizens of Massachusetts .we noth

If they can see their national character prostra

all pledged to such a purpose as this, and do not
wake ap, let me ask you what wiiZdo itf What
new purposee must they disclose to wake the
dormant patriotism and sleeping energies of
those who baliev. it is not quite time to arouse?
1 confess that I do not know, I cannot see any
thing Iu the future darker than tho present
which now envelopes ns; aad if the measures
now publicly avowed bo not enough to roase
the people ef the free Stale, to a sense of their
daager aud degradation, 1 confess that I have
not oiitica which wtii sm oWp ancagW into tho
pit ef infamy to reach the point wbera tlrar- will
wake up.
I know that the doctrine prevails exteasinelv
that sets it down as treason to make iaqoiry be
cause we ar. engaged in a w ar. It ia admitted,
that in time of peace you may acrutinizs with
the greatest severity, and thfre is no fanlt to bo
found, but it is maintained lhat ia time of war,
a different rule of morals prevails. Then tho
voice of opposition should be paralysed, then
mere should be no voices but pa-ana of praise,
no note, but shouts of ho nna. I do not so
understand our duty. I hare not so read his
tory; because I read that in tha days whoa the
country from which our ancestor emanated.
wagxl a war upon our fathers, the I richtest and
purest patriots ef English hltory found ths path
of duty leading them to the denunciation of a
war hostile to liberty, and these name, will live.
sacred and dear in the memory and hearts of pa
triots as long as the love or liberty fanUe a rest
ing plane in tho human boocni. The name, ef
those distinguished men who plead the cnuso of
freedom and of justice, agair at the hand of pow
er in tho British Parliament, have not yet been
held np aa traitors to their eountry, or enemies
to liberty; and so long as civil liberty shall find
an advocate, so long shall Chatham, and those
that stood by his side, be held in esteem.
1 am at a loan to know bow a different rule
has ever been established. If an administration
has been guilty of minor nigrancy, and would
wash themselves clean of Uie pollution, they
have only to baptise the land in blood and they
are clean. It seems to me that the condemna
tion of each a scale of morals cannot bo too load
or too severe. It seems to mo that the present
is tlie time for it, aud that Massachusetts ia em
phatically the place. Why, I wonder that Bunk
er Hill Monument, with ail ii ponderous weight,
can keep the bone, of our Revolutionary fathers
quiet la their resUog places while such senti
ments are uttered.
This is still going on. More men and mere
money is the cry. Ibave bteaamusedatsoeing
the attempts to throw tho responsibility from
one party to the other. 1 have heard it serious
ly stated that if the Congress of tho United
states had only promptly voted the volunteers
who were wanted, we should have had peace ia
six weeks. Aad 1 conld not help admiring the
answer. "Sir, have we not voted every man
and every dollar that the President wauled ?"
And it turned out to be true that he had eotsv
erything he had aiked, and has been at work
two years to conquer a peace," and has not
conquered it yet, and now he calls for more
men. Were it not too serious for a joke, 1 might
illustrate it by an incident. I knew a fond fath
er aud ..foolish son w hom tho father trusted
with money and it rained him. When the
father was bewaiiiug the result, tho son said,
"Sir, the only fault waa that you didn't give me
money enough- I had enough just to ruin me;
a little more woald have made a genUemaa of
me."
It is not necessary for me to state my policy.
for I have stated it again and again, i bei leva
tho war to be wrong, totally wrong, wrong in
its inception, wrong in its purpose, wrong in its
object, wrong in its aim, all wrong, everything
wrong. i am at n loss to conceive how patriot
ism or duty, requires any man who believes this
war to be wrong in all its phases, to vote money
to carry it on ; 1 am still more at a lees to know
how any man can vote to furnish the mean, to
the administration, and avoid tho responsibility
of carrying on a wrong and unjust war. To
my mind it is aa palpable aa if i saw an assassin
aud should give him a dagger, and should say.
Mind, 1 throw tho responsibility upon you. It
is a principle of law and good sense too, that ia
murder there are no accessaries before the fact.
They are all principals, those that strike the
blow, those that aid aaa abet, and these that
furnish the means, before tlie deed, all aro principals.
