HOUSE OF DELEGATES— t'riday, Jan. 15.
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
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
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
.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. They
all concur in the right to demand the supprr>sion
of abolition, and that it is the duty of the Legis
lature to cull upon the Northern States for the en
actment ot luws for that purpose. These rights are less
strongly asserted in some than in others; but in till of
the following counties, the doctrines are maintained:
Amelia, Aujrusta, Campbell, Caroline, Charlotte, Eliza
xetli City, iairtax, Fluvanna. Fredericksburg, Glouces
ter, Hanover, Henry. King and Queen, Norfolk, North
ampton, Nottoway, 1'iUsyTvania, Prince Kdward, and
SpotUyl vauia.

uoou pasturairo lor mares Jell with the horse, gratis,
and well led, if required, at twenty-five cents per day.
Great personal attention will be given by Thomas Flour

Black Arabian was presented by the Emperor of Mo
rocco to the U. Slates Consul at Tungiers, doubtless us a
marked evidence of iris friendly feelings to our Govern
ment, and was sold by order of Congress, at public auc
tion, Feb. 88th, 1835.
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. Wo refer
the public to the perfect cross which is presented, as an
inducement to breed from this horse. We consider him
the cheapest horse in this country, und well calculated
to improve the delicate, long-legged horses of the present
