I thought the honorable Senator from Georgia, Mr. IvEitso:;. the other day presented as fair a case fur a good wholesome homily as I had ever seen in the Senate, but nobody ever thought of administering it to him. When my friend from Michigan, Mr, Chahdler, however, fired, I suppose with tne magnet ism winch the Senator Irom Georgia threw expense ol your Army lor the past year, and out, got up and undertook to respond to him : it is aii alarming expense. -in the same style, perhaps not so eloquently ' Mr. Pros dent, it was my purpose at one and presented simply a counter opiuion to period ol time to address, the Senate on this the one which had been announced by the j question, but other Senators have amicipated Senator from Georgia, he had to take a lec- ; me in what 1 proposed to s'iy. I shall, there ture; but the Senator from Georgia went ; fore, content myself with voting upon rea scathless. j sons which have been given by others. I I do not wish to lecture anybody; but I ; wish, however, to state one suggestion which must say that I look upon the avowal of the occurs lo me as worthy of remark, aud which Senator from Virginia, made cuoily and de-! has not been slated to the Senate.

He would not main tain peace in Kansas on such terms or have order there, at such a co-it. If freomeu could not maintain peace among themselves, they were unworthy of the exercise of e;-!f? government, they were not fit to be freemen.

This is the common strengthening means lurv -thrown into every argument here.- While we prize the Union, while we would, I am sore, end the very gentlemen who use this lanr'tit-ne would do all they could to preserve and per petuate the Constitution and the Union, there is not a day that we ere not doomed to lis ten here, over and over again, to threats of Its overthrow; predictions made; little proph ecies thrown out, that to sfay, or to-morrow, or. at some near '-day at- hand, this Govern ment is to be no more. Sir, this is the nio4 unfortunate and ominous sign that exists in the whole country, in my jndgment. 'If such language cat? be Tatmliarly used, and thrown into ever argument as a iiiake-'.velhlas dust in the balance if tlnse threats ccn be mads here against the ex:stcnce of the Uni on, and if they can have any effect upon the people of this country, then, indeed, sir, we may well apprehend that it cannot last long." I hope it will last forever; and if nobody threatened it until I did, it would last forev er. Applause in the galleries. - Yes, sir, and it will last much longer than gentlemen here, by continual repetition and reflection, and meditation, believe to be so near at .handf and it would last much longer, perhaps, but for these meditations. They prise it so high ly that the remotest danger affects theiii; and they forthwith begin to prophecy that the end is near at hand; or they are provoked at something which is done which they think is adverse to the interests ot live tiepublic and the Union, and then they threaten; but all this is promoting the very purpose and end against which I know, in their hearts.. l!.ey ore opposed, and with their hands would j oppose. ' : We' would do well, I think, to throw oiit of all our ordinary course of argument theo threats and these prophecies. I believe the Union is to live, not because'!

I assume, as I have always assumed, that in the Territories no State has any right. There is no such thing as the right of the State in a Territory. The rights if they exist are lhe rights of tbe people of the States personal rights, and when an indi- j yidual, a citizen of a State, leaves that Sta'e j xvith a design to go to another, and passes i beyond its limits, he loses every right which he had as a citizen of that State, for lie ceases to be its citizen. It being a person- ai right, if vou wish to put it on that jround, mid wish to divide this Territory ac- ennlinir In the interest the oeoruo have ?n it. in proportion io nniuoeis, now mum, t m, would the slaveholders of the Union be en titled to! How much would the half million of slaveholders, with their wives and children, be entitled to out ol the Territories of the United Slates when put against more th in twenty millions of free people, who h ive the same rights with themselves! And yet the doctrine is taught here lhat because in some of the States of the Union slavery exists, thefore we are to take the number of States j anj on tiu ground of State rights claim that j ; t,e Territory be equally divided, with eqtril j privileges. j j Sjr, it is a personal privilege. Sj fir as j ! you may be a slavehol ler, and decire to go j to lhe Territories, you have all the right.. ; ; u,ich belong to yon as nn individual.
