4. That the act of the thirty-third session of ,
repealing the law of 181:0, known n9 the,
Missouri Compromise, by which slavery was for-

.. 0. that the act or ISoO, culled the I ugitivo S.avc
law, is unconstitutional, and odious to tho wholo
Maine, therefore, demands its immediate
nod unconditional repeal,
, 7. ihat it is the duty of the general government
without delay, tu abolish slavery wherever it lias
exclusive jurisdiction ; and to exert its influence'
whenovor nnd wherever it legitimately mny on the
Bide, of universal liberty. .
. 8..Th;Uthe.t!urd paragraph in the second see-:
ttun of the lirst articlo ol tho constitution ol the ;
nited States, slieuld bo amended by striking out '
.'the words, "which shall be determined by adding 1

Indians not taxed, throc-hUhs of all other ;
pcreons," ahd adding in place thereof tho words, '
,','excepting Indians not. taxed, and all persons
deemed f.nd hold as chattels personal."
,; liierofore, Resolved, That our senators in con-j
jjros be instructoJ, and our representatives re-'
.quested, to use all pruolicable means tu secure the

,at all times hereafter, most strenuously to oppuscjhvtho
in every justifiable way, the admission of any new i

It cannot be higher than that of the livci ngo.of those j

state and church should sillier, as they must, unti
tho constituents of tlio 01.0 and the other are
taught to know, love, and obey the truth and the
0:eat progress has been made towards tho re
demption of our country from the greatest iniqui

ihe evidence ihielly relied upon to maintain
this very paradoxical ass. n tion, ist;;e unquestiona
ble fact of the great change which, iu the last liv--and-twehly
years, has taken place in the theoreti
cal views current ;it the South 0:1 the subject ol
Slavery. It umiI, they say, iu tl.o old times ol
Patrick Henry, Washington and (eff-rson, I eforo
modern Abolitionism was heard of, to be fairly ad
mitted by the sl ivjiiohici-s tueuiseli es, that Slavery
was p. t inly an economical and political, but a
moral ciil nisi ; while its ultimate abolition was re
1 guide 1 as an essential article of faith a thing to
be lo .k-d forward to by all good men, though 110
' body seemed to hale any very accurate idea when
,or li'i'.v it win. to be brought al-nH.
In this respect there has, beyond doubt, a great
change come in er the dream of the South. The
slaveholders began with denyiiiu that Slavery was
a m ri,: evil. They did licit, s naj of tin ni, itt the
I'i.nventiou that forme! the Coiistituti m of the
L'nitcl State-; ; mid the same d-nial was rcpe ited
in the First and S.wmd '.' ngre-.s, and in every
'nog! -ss sine-in which tin; i: :..-; ioil of the sub-,
j-ct lias come up. Afterward they went on tj dj-
'ny that Slavery was either apolitical or an e-'-j
nouiii al ci il. Tho groin: I taken by tho Sonth in,
i'avorof the extension of sl.iveliolding 11! the time
of the .Missouri Com promise, forced thorn all upon
ibis platform, since it would have been too utroei-,
ous to arguo iu favor of extending a cju'essciiy
economical and political evil to ail the vast regions
wc-t of tho Mississippi.
Such was the sliil-of theoretics! opinion among
the slaveholders when the modern Anti-S. avery
uioveiuoiit; took its rise. Since then the slavchuld-
ers and their Northern allies have gone a great wav
further m the same dirccticn. They now hold that
