A DEFENCE OF THE liARNBCRNERS.
Washington, frytcmbtr 18,1850.
To tkt Editor of th* National Era :
Your strictures on the action of the recent Convention
at Syracuse. I tFink call for a reply.
You charge the Barnburners who participated in
tut jirufcevuiugs of ?i*,a t.vlu^
"*"fr" of r>rir>rw)oH
promulgate*! in the ttutialo Convention, and contended
for in the Presidential election of is IN,
find especially by adopting the Baltimore resolutions
of lStO-'d*, on the subject of slavery. You
assume that th' y openly acknowledge to the
world that they were wrong, and the Hunker seo
[ion were rijtnt, hi iunr otuuu uu iuia oukjcwv.
This is a very serious charge to make against any
party, and when it is made against a body of men
who. for three years, have been subjected to more
insult and misapprehension than any party ever
before in our politioai history, it should be
promptly met and refuted?and the statement of
% few simple facts will, I think, accomplish this.
The Baltimore resolutions express the position
of the Democracy, on the subject of slavery, past,
present, anil future. That is, that Congress should
not interfere with slavery in the States, or take
any incipient steps that may lead to such interference.
The Democracy are strict constructionists
of the Federal Constitution, and hold that
the individual States, with the exception of the few
subjects enumerated in the Constitution,are separate
sovereignties, and that New York has no more
right to interfere with the municipal institutions
of South Carolina, either directly or indirectly,
than she has with those of Great Britain or Hol>rt>d
The therefore, r.-ft pr.
consistent in adopting this resolution?not only
now. but would have been so had they adopted it
in 1848.
But this resolution in 1848 dtd not Vouch the
question in issue. The question was slavery in the
Territories, not in the States. The Mexican war
closed with a vast acquisition of free territory;
?nd the '-slave interest" demanded that it should
he surrendered to slavery, by a constitutional
construction. The nominee of the Baltimore Convention
indirectly admitted this construction by
living an opinion that it would be a violation of
the Constitution to enforce an opposite < ne. His
election and endorsement by the people would
therefore have been an indirect admission of the
demands of slavery.
On this the New York Democracy took their
position. It was to defeat such indirect ndmission,
and consequent construction of the Federal Constitution,
they placed theni?eves on a vital principal,
immensely transcending in importance the
right or wrong of slavery, or even the destinies of
the territories in question?a principle, in fact,
that involved the whole structure of our government.
and that was to decide which was the preponderating
element in the Constitution, slavery
or freedom They therefore separated from the
National party, and the party and personal
friendships of many years?cast behind them all
the blandishments of power and the emoluments
of office, ami subjected themselves to more abuse
and persecution than was ever before, in modern
times, inflicted upon a political party ; and they
passed throngh the fiery ordeal with a constancy
and unflinching bravery that challenged the admiration
of the very millions opposed to them.
The defeat of (Jen. Cuss, and consequent safety
of the Constitution, accomplished the great leoding
object for which they had separated from their
party and subjected themselves to so severe a trial:
but. they also wished, as a practical question, to
exclude slavej-y from the Territories in question,
and in this they were joined by another body of
men, who, believing that slavery is a great wrong
intlicted upon the black race, and acting wholly
upon and always in opposition to theConstitution,
were necessarily opposed to its extension into the
Territories. The Convention at Syracuse assunw
that the admission of California practically settles
the question, and that slavery is or will l?e wholly
excluded from the Territories. The ilarnburnprs
therefore havintr first decided the irreat nrin
siple involved, and then excluded slavery from
the Territories, now assume the position that they
have always occupied in regard to slavery in the
States; and the causes that separated them from
ihe National party having passed away, they
again take their place in the ranks of the National
party, with whom they have always fraternized
This is a statement of the facts in the premises,
ind you now charge them with an abandonment
it their principles and with had faith to their
lilies on the Territorial question. You assume,
that by acting with the Liberty men in u common
)bject, when that object was accomplished tlu^r
were bound to adopt the prior creed of t heir allies,
ind thus contradict the leading principles upon
vhich, as yoh'ical jnrtisnns, th? y had always acted
ind which, with the venerable Ex-President at
heir head, would have held every man of them
lp to the scorn and ridicule of the world. There
s, I suppose, no doubt that, out of IVO/tOO votes
:ast for Mr. Van Buren in the Presidential elecion
in the State of New York, a majority were
Barnburners; and if you had reasoned in a presisely
opposite direction, anil retched the conclulion
that the Liberty men were bound to ndopt
he Baltimore resolutions, (the prior creed of the
Barnburners) and thus become ustful sndavailable
Democrats, your skill as a logician would have
>een better displayed, although such a conclusion
would scarcely have been reached by a
Hahnhirnkk.
REMARKS.
We see nothing in the reply of a ' Barnburner,"
to change our opinion of the acts of the Syracuse
Convention. I lis construction of the Baltimore
resolution on the subject of slavery is totally
incorrect. That resolution expressly recognises
the doctrine of non-intervention by Congress
with slavery, not only in the States, but t?i the Territories.
Its language is unmistakable.
" That Congress has no power, under the Constitution,
to interfere with or control the domestic
institutions of the several States, and that
such States are the sole and proper judges of
everything appertaining to their own affairs, not
prohibited by the Constitution ; that a'l efforts of
abolitionists or others, made to uulure Congress to
interfere tn/h i/vestions of Slai-eiy, or to In he incipient
steps in relation thereto, are calculated to Itml to
the most iiliirminn anil thliinerous Cnnsnpontrs; and
that all such -Jfurts have an inn liable tenth ncy to diminish
thi ha jejune ss of tin jaoph and endanger the
slohiliiii anil iiejmanencti of the Union, a ail Out: hi not
to he count enuuctl by any jfrunr! of our political insti- |
lotions."
The Barnburners admitted the truth of that
part of the resolution which relatwl to slavery m j
the States; ao <li-l the Liberty men who unil???l
with theiri; but they all opposed that part which
related to slurry m I If Terr it or us The Baltimore j
resolutions enjoined Non-intervention in respect
to the question of slavery in the Territories,
the Barnburners denied it, and insisted on the 1
right ami duty of positive interference by Congross.
They voted against Geueral Castas the
representative of Non-1 uterventiou, ami for Martin
Van Huron, us the representative of WiluiotFroviaoism.
That was their fs?sition in InIS.
Where do we find them in 1V?0? On precisely
the ground they repudiated iu |hjh?sustain- ,
ing uoir a policy whieh th-n they deemed so wrong
and mischievous as to justify their separation
from the Nitional lieinocrscy! The Washington
Union understands that matter when it says
"The beet sign in the Syracuse Convention,
therefore, is the reailo/iiion of the. Jlultmure A'??Jntertrnt
ion Platform, ami the. profvurut silence rrInch
reigned 1,1 the Com-emiou about the hujfulo Wdmot- '
Proviso Platform, on which the Free-Hoilers went ;
off in the late Presidential election. Indeed, It is
laid that Mr John Van Huren declared he was
no Free Boiler, and that there was no such party.
It is a pity that he had not made this discovery a
little earlier. Thu Convention also up}trove of the .
bite measures of Congress n hie It threw overboard the
Wilmol Pronto."
The Territorial UuesUon has undoubtedly
been settled by Congress on tkn Principle of.
Non-intervention The Hyracuse Convention by
resolution expressly approves of Utis settlement,
-w tr-fw
tE NATIONAL ERA,
ind in adopting the Baltimore resolution above t>
(uoted, expressly affirms ita faith in the doc- <
rine and policy of Non-Intervention with all
in eat ions of Slavery?and that in the Cass platrorra!
We did all we could to effect a Union between
he Liberty men and Barnburners in New York,
ttid to bring about a general union of all the opponent*
of slavery extension, during the last
Presidential canvass. Under the same circumstances,
we should do so again. We see nothing
in our course then, to regret. The nomination of "
Martin Van Buren, and the three hundred thon- q
sand rotes iriven to him as the representative of
"
the Wilrnot Proviso, were links in the chain of *
causes leading to the passage of the Oregon hill J1
with its inhibitory clause against slavery, ami to e
the exclusion of slavery from the shores of the
Pacific. For all that the Barnburner* did by ?
word and deed to contribute to these result*, we "
hare given them ample credit. Nor were we ^
ready to blame them, when one year ago they t
adopted the doubtful policy of a uniou with the r
Hunkers. Although questioning that policy, we ,
vindicated their integrity, and hoped for the best. j |
But, now, when the State Convention, in which t
they are equally represented, with shameless j ?
profligacy abandons all they contended for in '
1848, and adopts all that they then repudiated, as (
an independent journalist, hound by no party (
tie* or considerations, we are not at liberty to ! I
suppress our opiniu^of thp movement ]'

OUR REPRESENTATIVES IS. TEXAS BOUNDARY i
BILL.
i
The question has been again and again asked
why no effort was made iu the House to amend
the Texas Boundary bill, and at last, one member,
in reply tw the New York 7Vi/>mtk, who seems to
have in his mind the adage, that" a poor excuse is
hottor than a >' ik..? V..?
were rendered unavailing. because the Speaker
would not look nt any one who rose upon the
Free Soil side That gentleman had no eye for
anything but the Texas appropriation?no eye
towards anybody but his own party. Gentleman
rose as numerously, in succession, as the phantom
kings did before the eyes of Macbeth, and they
spread out their chests, and held out their hands,
and even hemmed; but the impassible Speaker
looked only to Mr. Boyd; and so the most disgraceful
act upon the American statute book was
carried.
We admire the simplicity of the man who
could adventure this apology for one of the most
fl igrsnt neglects of duty, and one of the most
glaring exhibit ions of supineness and cowardice,
that have yet been perpetrated in the House "of
Representatives; and it would increase our admiration
to know whether he believed it satisfactory
or not. flow would such an apology have soundfrom
the mouth of John Uuincy Adamf? '
Worcester Spy.
John Uuincy Adams, had he l>een living, oould
have done no more than was done on the oocasion
referred to. The editor of the Worcester Spy does j
injustice to the true men from the free States j
who sought to defeat or amend the bill. The
rules of the House, enforced by a Pro-Slavery
Speaker, could not be set at naught. It is sheer
nonsense to talk of the representatives of freemen
betraying their trust, because they did not amend
the bill. Men cannot do impossibilities The
Speaker gave the door to Linn Boyd?how could
Judge Allen or Mr. Rockwell deprive him of it?
Ami when Mr. Boyd got the floor, offered his
amendments, and sprung the previous question, i
how could other amendments be introduced? It
was an impossibility And when the previous
question was not seconded the ever-ready Speaker
took care to give the floor to somebody who
would move to commit, and spring the previous 1
question on that. How could Unit lie helped? I
Woulil you have the Speaker lynched, and the
Homebody on the lloor choked oil' by main force?
There are plenty of Generate who can always
plan a better campaign and fight a better fight
than the man on whom are the actual responsibilities
of the battle field, plenty of heroew, out of
harm's way. Once for all we nay, essential amendments
to the Teias Boundary Hill were rendered
impossible by the fact that the Speaker und a
decided majority of the House were against them
Thk W ahhington Rkpiihi.ic continues to cultivate
harmony in the Whig Party by denouncing
all those sections of it that dislike the bills lately
passed, and by stigmatizing as baleful agitators.
Whig journals that venture to differ from it in
opinion respecting the adjustment. It is already
at loggerheads with the Philadelphia North Americon,
the Albany Evening Journal, and the New
York Tribune. This may suit Mr. Webster, but
will scarcely advance the interests of the Administration.
X, xAS?It seems that the Governor of Texas
has vetoed the bill referring to the people the i
proposition from the United .States to purchase
territory, &c. The Legislature adjourned till

(From the read in z of the bill we learned that
it requires, among other things, that every steamfifth?.

Mr Bayly replied, forty-one million four hundred

nor did it include the million put into the Civil
and Diplomatic Appropriation bill by the Senate;
nor the amendments to the Indian Appropriation

he turned, to th?y condition of the
Treasury. The actual receipts last year, from
all sources, were forty-three millions four hundred

(for reasons which he stated) can hardly lie as
large as they were the Uwt And thi# JWMTC 'he

printing, on which a committee stands ready to
make a report containing facts nil-important to
be known before a vote was taken
The House, however, passed the resolution, refused
to allow the report to be made, and went

his means and of his strength ; and he possessed
that rare gift of carrying forward into age the
