The House resumed the consideration of the Report of the Committee on tlu» subject of Abolition, the ques tion being on Mr. Watkins' motion to strike out the 2d resolution and insert a series of resolutions submitted by him. Mr. Stanard said, before he proceeded to the task he had undertaken, tiiat of showing that by tile amendment ottered by tiic member from Goochland, the most mate rial opinions expressed, und rights asserted by the people iu their primary assemblies, were passed by, evaded, or renounced, he begged to be indulged in a few prelimi nary observations, on topics connected with the main «i»e by very close affinities. I indulge a hope, said Mr. S., that the good-humored, and indeed sportive, address of my friend from Albemarle, will in some measure have caused nn abatement of the excited feelings which have been exhibited in the earlier stages of this debate, so a* to furnish a well-grounded expectation that a calmer judgment will be exercised on the subject now before the House. 1 the hi ore readily indulge this expectation, because there has been, within tlie lust two or three days, an abatement ol hostility to some of the leading propositions contained in the resolu tions which have been ottered by the majority; and mem bers, who, from the commencement of this debate, have most earnestly deprecated an application to the non-sluve holding Stales as supererogatory and improper, now con- ' cur iu the propriety of making the demand. 1 look to this i fact as a good omen, as justifying the augury that we shall at last agree upon some measure which will satisfy pub- | lie expectation, and to some extent avert the certain mis- | chief which has been produced by the extraordinary man ner iu which this subject has hitherto been treated by the iiousi*. It is with feelings of regret, mortification and chagrin, that I have compared our proceedings in re lation to this question, with those of the neighboring Stales with whom we are equuily interested on this sub” ject. Looking to the South, 1 see South Carolina, (which till very recently, has been the seat of the' fiercest party strife that ever threatened to sever the Union,) passing the resolutions winch have come to us from that quarter, with the most perfect unanimity and concord. Nullifier and Unionist, have met togeth er, and, wilhouleyvn the shew of dissentor disagreement Jisve ngresn upon the propositions which have been before us. Look at the Stall* of Georgia, where the rival parties are almost balanced excited by a recent political struggle in which parties have been brought neatly to an equipoise; more than a moiety taken from the former majority of the dominant party, and where the dominant party is threatened with overthrow at the next election; und yet we see the legislature of Georgia una nimous upon this subject Look at North Carolina, with parlies arrayed and impelled by fierce, uncompromising hostility on political questions connected with the Ad ministration of the General Government, and where parties are placed in a peculiar attitude- for, while the majority in the l^ gisliituri* is in favor of the Adminis tration, tin; vote of (lie Slate for members of Congress shews that a majority of the people are of the opposite opinion; and yet m that State there lias not been the semblance ol a diversity of opinion upon the more im portant questions belonging to tins subject. On some single question of constitutional law, like that which came up here yesterday, (ihe right of Congress to eman cipate in the District ol Columbia,) there may have been a little controversy, but upon the great and primary question of abolition,none. In all the Southern States this subjer.i has been acted upon with unanimity and celerity, und without any develnpeuient of party feel ing. All seem to have concurred in sacrificing indi vidual and paity considerations in order to give force to the measures adopted upon this important matter— Why caunot we, standing upon similar grounds, do something to mitigate the evil which our disseniions .have caused ? In order to do this—to discover a reme dy and the best means of applying it, Mr. S. said it would be necessary to lake u review of sentiments con veyed to us by the people in their primary meetings, and of the past proceedings of the House upon this sub ject. I*et them in the first place nscertuin, strictly nnd accurately, tho sentiments of the people in relation to this great question, and having done that, adopt such re solutions us most truly expressed those sentiments_ mould their action so us to conlorin entirely to the w ill of the people. Lei them do tins, and although the past mignt still bo a subject of iegret, yet the mischief that had been done might be, by sutn a course, neutralized, if not entirely obviated. lhi« subject, continued Mr. S., was put early in the ! nessiuu, into the bands ol' a Coiiimittee. Various causes •retarded the action of that committee; but, when it brought its labors to u termination, it presented to the House a set of resolutions moulded to the expression of popular sentiment—abstaining scrupulously from all par ty allusions, from every thing calculated to create dis sension—presenting no extraneous question, nor deviat ing into any collateral topics: und so predominant was the wish to avoid ail unnecessary subjects of dissension that a preamble was declined, because it was feared that while we might agree in our conclusions, we might differ in the process which led to them. These resolution* were offered by a committee, the ina jority of which was composed of members of the domi nant parly in this house. The resolutions were placed in hands—accessible to every member of the committee before the ruXe, except on the two first resolutions, was I takcA, as Xo their adoption or rejection hy (hat body_ Ample time was given for consideration. W hen the re solution came before tlw-cuuimitlse for its final action ' the first proposition was unanimously adopted The se cond, after an ineffectual attempt had been /nude to sub- ! stitute almost nn equivalent, was also adopted The third was agreed to without a dissenting voice. The fourth was likewise adopted in a similar manner. The fifth encountered a single objection, and that was the I coupling with the requeat to the North, the mode (bytpo an! inhibition) in winch they should suppress the-** *,b- ! jftclion/ible associations. Strike out the words “penal inhibition, and all objection to tlie f»tli resolution van ishes For the (ilh resolution it was proposed to substi- ! lute one nearly equivalent, taken from the set passed by the Legislature of North Carolina. This question to I substitute w-r (rird, but failed, and ll*. resolution was then adopted. The 7tl> was then considered snd adopt ed with hut one dissenting voice; but imim-diau-ly *ti>-r ; the decision another member (the member from ituck- i inghnm, Mr. BookerJ of the committee expressed some doubt of its propriety. The resolutions being thus passed upon utrietim, an ef. fort wss made to take (he question upon them as a whole ; but it was rejected, ts bemg out of order. A propoai- , tion was next made to supers ode the resolution* by, or rather to prefix to them, a preamble, which has since I *»een presented to the House in the report of t|M< tin no- I T*lf’ d4Y:'^,,d '» the negative; and hence, i str, said Mr. S , these resolution* became the final set of the committee. I bey members of this House, whose minds have not been inflamed by the events of the last lew days (or w hose m.nda having been to inflamed, nave CMded down so as to enable them impartially to exerei.se tlmir judgment) lobear tliese fuct* in their mind. After the action winch I hare stated of the committee came 1 the rcpoit of five members of the minority, (and yet ' these gentlemen did riol objeet to the entire report <>l the committee, they had not objected at all to the major part of a.) 1 give this history, said Mr. tttanard, to show that the infusion of those prejudices which have Ifd to the headlong and intemperate hostility to the report of tliu committee, i* referrahle to some influ «rno« that disregards the menu of the report.— I 1 liut influence has had the effect of developing the strange diversity of opinion which the House has wit nessed upon a subject respecting which no difference l eaxns among tile people ; ami ot bringing into nelinB toe slioiigcst and most eutbiUered parly feeling. In the ) House the first effort made aguiust the resolutions of the committee was an attempt to supersede them entirely j by the report of the ininoiily—by taking them vp and Considering them :is a w hole, contrary to nil purliauient ary practice; thus depriving members of an opportunity ot placing themselves erect before the people, by giving a vote upon each proposition separately. Yes! the first effort wus an utteiiipl to eaneel in omniOuji—to sidle the expression of opinion continued in the report of the committee—to substitute tor that report a preamble and propositions ol the minority, 'l'his was a course, said, ,tlr. S., (and 1 appval to the House whether the assertion 1 make is not correct,) wholly without prece dent. Such an attempt was uever beldre made, and if successful, would, us 1 have before said, entirely have deprived members of the opportunity of expressing tlieii opinion in relation to the principles laid down by the people in their primary assemblies—would have eva ded oi slurre'd over the most important questions agi tated in, und decided by, those assemblies. Why,i sir, so strong was this feeling of passion or prejudice, (and the House will iniderslund me ns not making these allusions so touch with a view of censuring what is past, us ot securing some beneficial action m f uture,) so strong " U!4 lbis feeling, that eveu the first resolution of the com mittee, declaratory ot the ultaclnueiil of this Assembly to the Union, was involved in the general sentence ol ostracism. And nut only so, sir, but one gentleman has tiioiight hinisell justified in cuslmg contumely upon the • committee Ibr leportiug that resolution, uml has used, m relation to it, u slung proverb, taken from the stews und purlieus of the city—a proverb which, however, in ac cordance it might be with the oratory of the gentleman • else where, was certainly oulol place in the legislature i nl \ irgiuia. Yes, sir, so reckless lias been the spirit ol opposition upon this occasion, that the contumely cast by the gentleman from Goochland upon tlte first lesolution of the committee, is uiso cost upon the resolutions of the ! people in their primary assemblies. For, sir, the people expressed precisely the same sentiment as that ndicul- , eu and impugned oy the gentleman in the report of the 1 committee, uud his proverb applies with equal npilutle ! to them as to the committee. 'Flic sentiment is ex- > pressefa' Dy many ol the iiicetin^d whose proceedings ‘ are before us, bul 1 content myself with referring i to llie loyal counties ot King William and Louisa.— j So m lull sc was tins feeling of prejudice—so reck less llie spirit ol opposition—that the contumely uttered j by its author, applies even to him&cjf. For who is more I lavish than llie gentleman from Goochland ot professions ! of lovo of the Union r And yet, according to the gen- t tieniau s proverb, such declaiations und professions are 1 only made by rogues, in order to cloak their hostility to j the Union! So heedless, sir, was the gentleman iv : his denunciation ot the committee, that he denounces j equally with the committee, his favorite Governor Aiarcy, and the Resolutions of ITlftj, drawn by Aludi son, and presented by John Taylor, of Garoline—for tile first resolution ot the committee is in part copied from 0110 of the memorable resolutions of 17!>8, pre pared by Air. Madison. Looking, then, into tho past, 1 usk it whut we there find is not sutlicient to induce the belief that a lair and unclouded judgment has not heretofore been exercised in relation to this ques tion; bul that, on the contrary, aounscl has been uiken of passion and of parly; and that thence have pro ceeded these wide divisions—these wicked dissensions_ which have prevailed upon a subject in regard to which there ought to be such perfect unanimity. Jtut, sir, I huve not staled all the indications of the prevalence of this in auspicious influence during the past discussion. Much yet remains to be told. When the first resolution had been passed, and tho second was propounded to the House, a proposition was made to strike out the latter' and this without the assignment, ol' u single reason by the mover. And on reasons being called for, the only one as signed, was, that the resolution of the committee, though correct in designating any interference with our rights bv the General Government or the Slates, as u violation of Iho Constitution, i&o., went loo far in saying, that any in terference by tho citizens would be such a violation of the Constitution. This was the sole objection made by the mi nority to the 2d resolution of the committee. And the question being put to the House whether the objection was u valid one—whether the words “citizens thereof’ should be stricken out—the House decided in the negative_de clared by a vote of lUti to 20 that the words should re main. Subsequently, two other objections were taken to the resolution. One of which was, that the manner in which the words “citizens thereof” was used in the reso lution, was ambiguous, mid taken in connection with the words Slates and Federal Government, which preceded them, might be supposed to apply to both. Tliul, in fact the idea that there were citizens of the General Govern ment, might be hidden under the language of the resolu tion. Tins objection was raised by the member from Campbell, (Air. Daniel,) und having us he said, such ob jection, he could not support the resolution. Now, con tinued Air. S., although all the principles of grammati cal construction, und the fuel that the phrase citizens of the General Government was an anomalous one, utterly repudiate the view token by the gentleman from Camp bell ot this matter, we bowed to this hypercriticismof the gentleman, and removed the alleged ambiguity from the resolution, by inserting the words “ citizens of the other Stales.” The remaining objection was to tho conclud- I ing part of the resolution which uliirms that such inter- | ference by the citizens of the other States violates their I constitutional obligations; and yet we have front tho very gentleman who makes this objection, the declaration that the citizens of the Northern States are subject to con stitutional obligation—Also, that it is correct doctrine to say, that the citizens of the other Slates have no right to interfere with our slave property. Thus, by these two concessions, you have it demonstrated in the clearest manner, that the gentleman s objection is groundless and that tile position of tile committee is correct. Thus all objections to the 2d resolution of the Committee were completely removed. The gentleman from Campbell, continued Air. S., in the early part of the debate, announced his conviction, that H w as inexpedient lor the slave IS tales to make any demand upon the North; but now, sir, (now that, us he has said, lie bus become acquainted with the sentiments of the people—did ho not know them before, sir?) lie of fers an amendment which goes a bowshot beyonu the re solution of tho Committee. That resolution merely af firmed that any inteterence on the part of the citizens of the Northern Stales, would bea violation of their consti tutional obligations; nut the amendment of the gentleman declares that such interference would be a violation, not only of their cuustiluUori.il ubhgut.ons, but of their so- I c.s! Julies. Air. Daniel said, the amendment was equi valent, and only equivalent, to the resolution of the Committee. Mr. Stanaiid. It is equivalent to the resolution of the Committee ! ’I lieu why strike out that resolution to substitute an equivalentl Now, air, said Mr. Btau **rd, I do not take this review witii u view to the grati fication of any personal feeling, but to bring to the no tice of the people and of the House, that the question to strike out the second resolution of the Committee is a question to strike out a proposition, against winch there has not been made, and does not exist, a single valid objection. Only two objections have been raised to it, and these have been effectually removed, the one by inserting the words “citizens of the States,” in com plinnoe with the philological views of the gentleman troiii Campbell—the other, by the tact that that gentle man lias offered an umcncimcnt which he declares Vo be an equivalent to the resolution. The question then be fore the house is, whether they will strike out a resolution thus vindicated from all objection, for the mere purpose ol substituting a proposition precisely similar—for, ex [ ceplmg that part of the resolution which declares that the “Citizens of the States can violate the constitutional obligation, its' provisions are precisely similar to the amendment of the gentleman Irom Campbell; and the House have already passed upon that inulU-r—sanction ing the principle laid down in relation to the citizens—by a vote ot 108, over SJO. Unless the House is disposed to eat its words, that principle must be retained. Should the House udopl the amendment of the gentleman from Cumptiell, it will reverse its own solemn decision given by the large vote 1 have mentioned. Will the House do this' Mr. S. here made an earnest appeal to the House to discard party considerations in considering this question, and to cast out from among them that spirit of dissen sion which had hitherto been productive of so much evil. He called upon gentlemen to join him in exorcis ing the pernicious uuu misleading influence that hud been at work among them. 1 cull, said Mr. Si , still more emphatically in this respect, upon those members who have professed a willingness to tarry out the senti ments of lha people. 1 call upon them not to falsify those sentiments—not to bring reproach upon themselves by voting one day upon a proposition in the affirmative) and Hie next reversing their vole, and this in order to’ evade compliance with the popular will. Having, said Mr fltanard, taken tins review of the past proceedings ot the House, 1 come now to fulfil my main purpose, which is, to ascertain precisely the state ot icelin * existing among ihe per.pl i m relation to this subject* —and having ascertained this, to show Hint, in the substitute ottered for the resolutions of the Committee, the popular sentiment is either cast aside, evaded, or rfi tirely rejected. Let it be noted then, air, that at the pri. mazy meeting* of the people, there were three points up on which they expressly declared their wishes and <q!i mona. to wit: the interference of the citizens of other Slate*, thu suppression of the Abolition Societies, a rid the infliction of adequate penalties for that purpose. Upon these points they instructed their representatives. In relation to the first of these they said, that they regarded any interference of the citizens of the other Male* with 111*- question of domestic slavery here, ns wholly unwar ranted. for them had been no interferenee, sir, from any other quarter—no Htste, no functionary, either legislative or judicial, had attempted to Interfere wiili our slave property. It was the action of the citi zens of the Northern Stales that the people deprecated, and the danger arising from which, they charged us here to endeavor to avert. Now, what had been the course of gentlemen taken in ronaeotinn with these sentiments of the people} Certainly the moat extraordinary within the scope of hia (Mr. tf .'a) knowledge of legislative his tory. While the acts of the (ilium of the North wera th- sole cause ot apprehension,gentlemen came in with propositions deprecating the inteference of Ihe State* or the General Government, omitting any declaration as to the real source of danger—nay, not only omitting, hut striving with all their might to suppress such declara tion iu the resolutions of the committee—a studious en deavor to avoid the reprobation of the interference of citizens ul the North, and a superfluous energy in de nuuncing such interference on the part of the General Government or the States. I return, said Mr. 8., to the position that the people have expressly directed us to de uouuce and arrest the interference of the cititene of the North with our slave property, and that they have in voked the action ol their repiosentalives to carry out j their wishes in this particular—and now, sir, to prove the accuracy of this position, let us refer to the meet ings ol ihe people.—I here desire to perlorm a double duty, and cite the proceedings at these meetings, not only for the information of the House, but iu order that, through tins medium of the public Journals, they may be spread in an available form before Ihe people. I wisii these resolutions to stand grouped together, and 1 beg the slenugrupheis will lake note of the numbers of those which i will rend. Those to which I now refer, sustain the first position as to the interference of citizens of other 8tates: 1 lie lirst resolution of the .‘lugueta meeting says: “That the institution of slavery, as it exists in the Southern States, is exclusively domestic iu its character, and the •ole right ol modifying or abolishing it, belongs to the several Slates in whirHi it exists, and every attempt by the citizens or legislatures of any State, or by the Con gress ol the United States, to interfere with the subject in any other Stute, should be looked upon as uu uncon stitutional invasion of the rights of such State.” Here it will lie perceived itiat every attempt (not alone the acts ol printing and circulating pamphlets) is de dared unconstitutional, «Jkc. 1 he county of liucktHglunn say in their first resolu tion : “ '1 hat they will not argue the question of the l ight ol slavery ; that is a question for each Stute holding slaves to decide for itself; and that they will not permit any people to interfere between them and their slaves. ’ The first resolution of the county of Campbell is us fol lows—(It does not specify the ucls of citizens; but it will be found in the body of the resolutions llmt it is aguinst the citizens of the North that the indignant lan guage of the resolutions is directed): “ That we shall hold any attempt to impair the rights of property in our slaves, ns guaranteed by the Constitution, by the aboli tion of slavery by Congress in any of the Stales, or any ol the Territories or District where slavery now exists, or to regulate the manner in which slaves muy be sold from one Slate to another, as a wanton violation of our political compact, and destructive of the whole frame of our government.” Tile 2d resolution of Caroline says : “ Tltnt the aboli tion societies ol the Northern States are combinations of citizens of those States whose o|ierations have the direct tendency to overthrow the governments of the Southern Stutes ol this confederacy, by destroying their property, breaking up their industry, and exposing their citizens to all the horrors of civil and servile war." The 2d resolution of Charlotte: “That uny inteiTe rence with our slave property, by citizens of the non slave-holding Stutes, is alike unwarranted and unwar rantable, and cunnot for a moment be tolerated by|lhe citizens and slave-holders of the Southern country. Elizabeth City: The tirst resolution declares: “ That our right to exercise ownership over our slaves, is gua ranteed to us by our political compact; and that any at tempt to invade it by any society or association of men, will be resisted by such means as the nature of the case may require.” The Town of Fredericksburg j8 next in order. And here let me premise that I recollect having been inform ed through the public press, (for 1 was lur distant at the time)—that 1 saw it recorded in the organ ol' a certain party in this city—that the resolutions were from the pen of the Hon. John M. l’atton, and the announcement was accompanied with a flourish of approbation. The 1st resolution suys: “ That wo entertain the opinion, in common with the whole of the slave-holding Slates, that the subject of slavery, as it exists in the slave-holding Stales of this Union, is in all its uspecls, a domestic question—belonging exclusively to the citizens of these States, and that the people of no other Slate have uny right to attempt to change the relation therein existing between master nnd slave, and that no such interference can be permitted.” Gloucester declares the same sentiment in the 2d reso lution: •• That for the people of any foreign government uurestiuinedly to adopt and persevere ill u systematic course of measures calculated to place in jeopardy the peace and tranquillity of uny Stale of this Union, would turnish, not only to the Stale thus threatened, but to the United Slates, cause of Ihu most serious complaint; und this remark loses none of its force as between the seve ral States of this Union in regard to eucli other; on the contrary, the fact of their union renders it imperative on each mid all to secure against the machinations of any portion of their citizens, the undisturbed tranquillity of each and all.” 1 Greensville passed no detailed resolutions; hut adopted, with unqualified approbation, the resolutions of the meet ing in the City of Richmond. I lie first resolution ot the Oily of Ilichtnond is as fol lows: And here i may say that the resolutions of that meeting were digested by an assemblage formed of all par ties, and, so far as 1 am informed, had the nuppoit of all : “ That we shall hold any attempt to impair tiie rights of properly in our slaves, us guaranteed by the Constitu tion, by the abolition of slavery by Congress in any of the Stales, or any of the Territories or Districts where slavery now exists, or to regulate the manner iu which slaves may be sold from one Stale to another, us a wan ton violation of our political compact, and dcstructivu of the whole frame ot'uur Government.” Louisa speaks thus in her 2d and 3d resolutions : 1 hat we view with indignation and horror the course of the Northern Abolitionists, which is calculated, with onetring certainty, if not speedily checked, to result in disunion and the awful calamities of civil and servile war—That this unholy interference between master and slave, by a portion of the people of the North, is a direct violation of tin; Federal Constitution, and cannot and will not be tolerated by us; and further, that we recog. mze no better right in them to interfere with our domes tics, than they have to preach up doctrines of rebellion und bloodshed among the white slaves of Great iiritaiu, Ireland, or any other foreign country, wejbeing to them) as respects the abolition question, a foreign nation to all intents and purposes.” Observe, sir, that this unholy interference is the in terierencc of citizens and not of Slutes. The town of Lynchburg declares: II 1 hat the discussion ol the question of slavery, us it exists in the Southern States, with reference to its pros peclive or immediate abolition by the citizens of the non slu veholding States, cither as individuals, or as legisla tive bodies, isuii inpertinent interference with the rights of the South, as recognized by the Federal Constitution, and will not be submitted to.” The first resolution of the county of Mecklenburg soys: “ That we cordially respond to the sentiments and re solutions of our fellow-citizens of Richmond, expressed by a public meeting in lliut city of the 4th instant, and that we firmly co-opcrato with them, and with our fel lon -citizens ol the bnuth generally, iu such measures us limy secure the undisturbed enjoy incut of our common rights. .Middlesex docs the same. jVurtlnnnjiton thus expresses her views:—“That the relation subsisting between the several States, and the duties and obligations which spring from that relation, require that eacii State shall prevent its own citizens’ from attempting to injure the Governments or People of the oilier Stales ; that a Stale which refuses or volunta rily neglects to perform its duty in this respect, violates 1W constitutional obligation, and places itself in the atti tude of an enemy to the other Slates; that the anti slavery societies, organized in New York nnd other Northern Stales, are combinations of citizens of those States, with the express view of overturning the Go vernments of the Southern Slates, by destroying their property, breaking up their industry, und exposing then citizens to all the horrors of civil und Bcrvile war. jYottoicoy declares—“ that wc view the combinations of persons which have at any time been formed in this Union for the purpose, in any way whatever, of inter meddling with our slaves, or of aAVcling the legal male ol slavery as established umorig us, as direct invasions of our rights, nnd settled conspiracies to encourage rebellion and murder.” i lie 4th resolution of the Pittsylvania meeting j* n* follows;—*• ITi.it we regard ilie present movements of a portion of the people o! the Northern States, on the sub ject of slavery in the South, ns u wilful, deliberate, open uml dangerous attempt at a violation of both the Federal and Stale Constitutions.” Powhatan says“That we consider the existence of slavery amongst us as a subject for out own peculiar and exclusive consideration, and one with which we cannot and will not permit the interference,directly or indirectly, of any person or persons whatsoever.” You perceive that the interference of any “person or persons whatever,” is denounced—and all interference is repelled—not merely the printing arid circulating of in cendiary works. The resolutions of Prince George arc equivalent to those of the city of Richmond. Now this review has shewn the House that one of the prominent and leading aubjects of reprobation among the people, was the interference of the citizens of the Northern Wtnles with our slave property. 1 have said that there were three points upon which the people have distinctly declared their sentiment*. I think I have proved the truth of my assertion us regards one of these points. Let us now proceed to another—let us proceed to answer the enquiry w I tether the people have uutlio riser! ns to call upon the Northern Mimes to suppress this interference of her citizens, hy legal enactments._ Upon this point the people have been even moro unani mous than upon that to which 1 last adverted They come to two distinct propositions- first, that this Wtate has a right to demand or the Northern Mlutes the sup pression of the interference of their citizens in this ques tion—and secondly, they point out ih«> mode hy which this end is to be attained. Now, sir, as the exponent of the proceedings of the meeting in Mecklenburg and many other counties, let ns refer to the Richmond resolutions, whieh they adopt. We shall find that the right asserted in llie second reso lution of the Richmond meeting, in not merely a right to demand the suppression of incendiary publications, but the prevention of nil interference. I beg gentlemen to give me their attention on this point. I Conjure them not to neglect the mandate of the people, no plainly express ed. I do not charge them with harboring stir h an in ten lion. I speak of result* and do not charge intentions. I ask every member as he wishes our odious here to b« the reflex of the people's sentiments, not to forget the distinction between an assertion ot'the right to call I'or the suppression and to prescrilw the mode of suppression —and the total surrender of those rights, which charac terizes the substitute. But to return—llic 3d tesoluliou of the Richmond meeting is as follows: ‘•!id. Htfutrtd, That we have a just claim on all the non-slavcholuing States for the enactment of suitable and efficient laws, to repress and put down bv adequate |»enaltiea, all incendiar' or seditious associations, whose avowed purpose is, to disturb our peace and excite insur rection among our slaves, and we confidently rely on the wisdom und firmness of the General Assembly, by a proper appeal to those Sitater, to procure the passage of such laws." - Here, sir, is no evusion or equivocation. No ground is left for the most subtle mind to expound awny Tiis du ly to the people. Observe what this resolution declares. In the first place, that we have the right to demand the passage of laws by the North, to suppress those Associa tions, and in the 3d, the Legislature of Virginia is relied upon to exert itself to procure the enactment of such laws by the Northern people. The meetings whicn adopted the proceedings of the City ol Richmond, were those of Mecklenburg, Middle sex, Petersburg, Accomac, Greensville,and Halifax. In addition of these counties, you find the declaration of these principles equally distinct, although in different language in the proceedings of many others.

The public may be aware of the fact, that it is extreme ly difficult to purchase the full-blooded Arabian; und no doubt the Emperor of Morocco would have been highly insulted at an ofier to purchase lilnck Arabian, even at an extravagant price. Many good judges have pro nounced him in all respects the finest horse they ever saw. He is eight years old this Spring-full five feet high (lull for un Arabian)—of great muscular powers— smooth, graceful action—and commanding in his gene ral appearance. He exhibits all the trails in character andi f'oiin of the genuine Arabian, lie has proved him self to he an uncommonly sure foal-getter.
