formed a part in tbe sectional strife, wbiub nas

death knell of our glorious ' Union had . already
been heard; that it was to bo dismembered
and torn into fragments, that State would part
from State, and oltle from tha State to which

Ob! what ia the treason of those mea who
thus sacrifice the noblest hope of man?.. And
who is there that would not lay down bla life a
wllllnr tacrifice, to preserve the Union of these
States? A Union that la modeled after that of
our Church, which allows every man the lar-
gest liberty in doing right, and only restrain
blm when be attempta evil.
The Catholic Church la conservative, and
around the ona idea of union, all itsfrinoiplee
revolve and gravitate,' What is th principle of
secession, but the carrying ont of the principles
of private judgement? There I an incident
recorded in Holy Writ, in which, it ia stated
that whenever a dead body wa foabd upon tbe
highway, all whose step led from the spot
were brought to the corpse and made to w.'

show that tbe Doctor was guilty of Inconsisten.-
cy when be voted for the. eighth resolution in
tbe Senate, endorsing Mr. JJuubanan. , it reads
aa follows:
"There can remain co doubt in .the minds of
the American people lnrelation to Buchanan s
complicity with the secession movements; and
that he ought to bo Impeached, we think, will
find a response in tho heart of -every true and
loyal American citizen, ilisaending Secretary
Thompson, a tborougn-blooded traitor, to North
Carolina, with tbe publio portfolio in his band,
is, of itself, ' a sufficient ground, lor impeach
ment, outside of the immense amount ol other
testimony against him. We doubt whether God
didn't make that crook in the old traitor's neck
for some wise purpose, and U will be the eln of
the government if the purpose is not carried
ont. It would make tbe.oUl chair of Washing
ton, Madison, Jefferson, -Monroe and Jackson
laugh, if one of Its degenerate' occupants were
taken out aad strung up by tbe neck, occasion
ally, and we don't know, of a better subject to i
commence oo, than tais ee.f-ssrue Jame JtJuon

think oi their neck vhen they contemplated
treason against their Country."..",''....'

bad jnat now voted, and the gentleman from
Butler would see by examining the 8tb resolu

bad not a word of bis editorial, In rotation to
Mr. Buchanan', to take back.. That itwasjut to
his administration, tljl within' the laettbreeor
four weeks, no one on the floor will pretend to
deny. But as the President, since the dismissal
or withdrawal or nis treasonaoie uaDio?i, nao
exhibited some back bone, and was willing to

he wa willing to endorse thar much bf James
Buchanan. ' .'"' ' '.' ', ,7

- The report was agreed Hi and the bill was en

Air. iua, to whom Was referred hi reso
tion lostractioa- the military committee to mak
certain inquiries concerning' tbe necessity of
putting tna ocaie in preparation ior oerenoe ror
any emergoncy,' iSta., reported it back, recom
mending its passage.
Mr. WHITE moved it reference to tbe com
mittee on lederal relationa.
Mr. SCIILL.ICII eureested the nrorirletv of
oeiajiDK aouon.
j-i i .! r--w
Mr. COX felt obliged, bv a flense of duty, to
press It. He thought If the people knew their
aeienceiese condition, tney would demand prep
aratlons of a defensive character.; t .'e't
. Mr. WHITE thought it an imprudent meas
ure at this junction, hud sister States - would
regard it a menaces i Although it may be (im
ply defensive In desien. it would be misoon
etnied and would therefore bare an evil effect.
It would be sounded as a declaration of hostil
ity. He would prefer that the standing com
mittee on federal relations should take charge
or ue subject.
Mr. FISHER thought there wa an undue
delicacy on thi aubiect. It Is wise and owner
whether in peaoe or war to look at the defences
of the btate.- He did not think tbe aotion nro
posed to be taken, would have the effect sug
gested by the Senator from Brown. Tbe Militia
Committee does not aot upon this lubjeot be
cause tnis revolution wu pending. Therefore
this resolution "should pass. He wa out of
p&tiencawith tbi sensitiveness. The Senate
appear to be afraid of doing anything, while
tbe people are waiting for them to act, and the
uenerai Assembly should aot promptly. Mr
F. went on to describe how the Militia of the
State bad beea culpably neglected by the Leg
Islatnre, and held there -should be reform. If
the Senate will proceed with tbia business, and
will not talk so much about it, nothing will be
aaid ol 1L We ought to go at it and do the
work promptly, becaiwe it ia proper and right.
We ' simply inquire what is the eondition of
our own bouse, and if it ain't sale we baro a
right to make it so, and it oan't be offensive to
our neighbors.
Mr. SCHLEICU eaid be could not permit
tbe positiou ot benators to ba misconstrued even
by implication. Nobody is afraid. Senators of
Ohio do not fear, the people of Ohio are not
atrald .' U hey are patriotic, and should there be
war, they will do their whole duty. He thought
if we display our preparations in the eyes and
shake them m tbe ears of other States, it will
give offence.. It is our doty to discharge our
own obligations properly, so our conduot cannot
be misconstrued, tie proposed to modify the
word "defense" in tbe resolution, so tbat the
general sense might be adopted, which ..would
convey tbe fact thut we are reducing all our de
partments to order. He would not have any
thing In the resolution which anybody could
misconstrue into war preparations. . . ... .
Mr.1 MONROE wa a peaoe. man, but be
thought that whatever a State nudertook to do,
should be done well or not al all. The Consti
tution and laws of the State, recognise a Mili
tary system, and we should therelore, keep up
a proper organiaation. He had always main
tained such maxims, and be saw no reason
why It ibonld not be done now.. He thought
It proper to vote on such a measure as that now
pending. Ho wa not particular about tbe lan
guage of the resolution, if he could get the sub.
stance in any other form. He thought th less
talk we bare about it, tha better the effect.
Mr. STANLEY held that when guns arc
planted upon the Banks of the Mississippi to
intercept steamboats and require them to "come
to" like vessels of a foreign nation with which
we are at war, It ts a bad time to talk about
tbe fear ol excitement. The country ia full of
excitement, ine resolution is timely and
proper, and should be adopted.
Mr. HOLMES wa favorable to the object
of tbe resolution upon general principles, but
thought It unwise at this time.; He supposed it
wouio cause excitement in our sister. states.
The resolution come from a mild, peaceful
man, and it therefore has more significance.
Had It came from a brilliant distinguished mill
tary man It might have been different. .
Mr. SCHLEICH Interrupted that he could
not allow tbe service to be misrepresented.' Mr.
Cox Is a Brigadier General of (he 0. V. M
Mr. HOLMES backed, and said ho bad re
garded Mr. Cox a peaceful man, not a warrior.
Laughter The committee on Militia Affairs
waa named to' Mr. Holme, when he Mid be was
satisfied tbe State was safe in its bands. Laugh
.Mr. GARFIELD advocated th resolution as
eminently proper, and proceeded to compare the
iieeoie armament oi umo witn mat oi otner
I States, and reviewed generally thesubiectof ar
maments In the country to show the duty of
this state to reiorm it military arm. He
thought it a matter of no consequence whether
Ohio action upon this subjeot causes excitement
or not. It bas been tbe policy of the South
ever since 1832 to get excited, so that all means
of defence should be taken from one side, and
that the other side should be strengthened.
Mr. Garfield went on to say that it would be
weakness, pusillanimity in Ohio, to neglect her
duty in tms matter.
' Mr. JONES rose to a point ol order. He ob
jected that the Senator bad no right to charge
the Senate with belngpuslllaminous.
Mr. GARFIELD did not recognize the right
of the Senator to call him to order for snch' lan
guage. But he desired to explain that he did
not mean to characterize any Senator or the Se
nate as polBillanlmon. He had not designed
to use bard words but to express what seemed
to him to be the true ltite of the chc ' He fa
vored the resolution. " ' ' '
-. Mr. WHITE thought It proper tbatquestlocs
should be discussed in the light cf circumstances.
Tbe Republican party Is responsible for tbe con
duct of the publlo affairs. The question bas ar
rived shall (the Republican party or the Con
stltution, go to the wall. The dominant portion
ot the Republican party are unwilling to make
concession. "Tbey are aconstomed to construe
the Constitution In one way, and We in anoth-
Mr. FISHER called the Speaker to order, re
questing that be be confined to the question. '
Mr. WHITE said if tbe gentleman would be
patient he would come to iu . Tbe question Is
one ot war whether by force of arms, we shall
go . down and force our Southern brethren to
acquiesce in our views He would ' not do
any act that looks directly or remotely Into
ooercing our Southern brethren into an acqui
escence In our views of the Constitution upon
tbe question which divides parties.. This reso
lution look' to coerolon. It Would use the
strong arm of the sword to compel tbe South to
accede to us. He would not endorse it, ' It pre
tends to be a resolution looking to prCparatlob
for defence; We didn't cecd such preparations.
Nou of tha Slave State propose to invade us.
Mr. WHITE in reviewing tbe crisis remark
ed concerning the controversy between the
North and tbe South, at one of tbe grievance
of th latter, that Ohio had been guilty of nul
lifying law. One of the Judge ofber Supreme
Court had shown himself incapable of apprecia
ting tbe obligations of ah oath, and the people
bad endorsed him. " ' '.', " ," '

-Mr. WHITE replied that the strong arm of
tbe tword should follow the civil authority. Let
tho civil authority be applied to those who have
violated tbe law, and let the power or tbe gov
ernmeot be Invoked In tbe name of tbe law
Let tbose who violate the law b taken op and

Mr. COX said tbe subject matter of the res.
lutioe Is strictly wilbio tbe scop of the com
mittee to whom It It directed. He wa turprlsed
at th rang Of the debate., ,W are 'Informed
tbat tbe people of Ohio., (n a )et courageous
manner than the people of Mississippi, and in at
wanton and recklessa manner as tba South,
hav disregarded the Constitution. It ls laid
a Jade of tbe Supreme Court of unto nao done
to. (Mr. White referred toModg Brlnkerboff
decision noon the Fugitive Slave Law.) Thi

subject, we find - that he" arraign a dissenting

people are not seoeoers, or traitors, i ney nave

Mr. White as proof of the treason of the se
ceding States, and a justification of any aot the
other States may deem necessary and proper to
defeat it. -,'; i a 1 1 1 I
Mr. COX. proceeded to vindicate and press
bis resolution) holding it due to tbe Stata of
Ohio. It ,ia a peculiarly appropriate question
for the militia committee, just as a purely legal
question belongs to the judiciary. It propose
simply to instruot this committee to Inquire and
report. We are told the people of Ohio are in a
different condition from tbe South end -we do
not need preparations for defence. ! He did not
know what are the relationa of the Senator
from Btown, with tbe Soutb, but from hi de
claring tbat the people of Ohio have acted In a
cowardly and traitorous manner, he thought his
reiatisns were closer than witn nis ,own people.-
'. a- .... ; f'i
Mr? COX discussed the condition of the
country, when
Mr. WHITE Inauired whether Mr. Cox be
lieved in the power of the Government to make
war on a State? v
' Mr. COX No air, but I do bolleve in tho
power and the duty of the Government to en
force tbe law.
Mr. WHITE Precisely the ground I as
sumed. Tho civil power should be invoked,
and if that is not sufficient, martial law should
be proclaimed, z. l-? . r
Mr. COX continued, tbat it is because of tho
probable necessity of the contingency here allu
ded to, that Ohio Bhould be prepared for it.
He was not disposed to believe there Is olvil
war, but be would not by bis vote consent to al
low Ohio, to remain in a defenceless state, so
that ahe will be unprepared when the govern
ment calls for our services. It Is not for us to
inquire whether, what we do in this matter will
cause excitement. Our duty is to put ourselves
in a state of preparation: Mr. Cox reviewed
tbe progress of eventa in the. South, suggested
tbat such facts indicate the probability tbat wa
will be oalled upon to defend ourselves here in
Ohio, and held that this people ought to calmly,
deliberately prepare for any event that may
come. While Ohio is willing to bold out the
olive branch it is still her duty to prepare for
tbe worst. Ho closed by remarking that when
a Senator, for whom we have so much personal
respect, as we have for the gentleman from
Brown, declares that a Judge ol -th Supreme
Court kad been gulltyjof deliberate perjury, and
tbat tbe people are cowardly and traitors, it be
comes os to look well to it that Ohio is prepar
ed for any emergency. . H;-; . 1. I

to make a political qneation of tbi matter; but
it occurred to him tbat tbe Democratic party
not many year ago, mpported a man for the
Tic Presidenoy'wbo had lived a life tim with
a black women as bl wife. He said this in re
ference to the snxiety in the party now, upon

Mr, PLANTS did not know, in the Stata of

Mr.'. JONAS alluded to th raptdi lnllux of

Mr. SCOTT of Warren regretted that the last

rinse or other. Boiomau. wno was oanuuuiaeu
in tbe gentleman' churoh, bad said he;was
black' 11 thought thi law unnecessary i bnt
t.h fact ia. that the case of amalgamation
which do occur, ttake plao without marnge,
and in a few cue of marriage occur for tne
purpoio legitlmtalzing tbe oirtrrlng or previous
wrong. His remedy would be this, when the
wrong intercourse of the races can be proved
upon a white man, be would oblige bim to make it
lawlul bv marrying tbe woman of color. This
h thoueht would reach Ihe caso. Ha did not
want it to appear abroad tbat such a bill is
necessary in Ohio,' """' "" --,
Mr. MONAIIAN hoped the gas to be ex
pended on the negro question, would b ex
hausted on thia bill, tbat we might be done
with it. . He laid that the offspring of mixture
waa unhealthy, and would soon die out. i He
had no objection to their dying out - He also
thought that tbe man or the woman who was so
degraded as to marry a colored person was tit
to marry no other. .
Mr. BRUFF said the proposed object of the
bill wa not provided lor 4u It.. JNOt one in ten
ot tbe mulatto of tbe country are tbe offspring
of marriage, wbioh the bill forbids; hot It pro
vides no penalty for illicit mixture. II tbe
mixture does taka place, is it better that it
should b unlawful? Thi bill encourage snch
mixture rather than otherwise. ; .:
Mr. VORIS moved the previoua question ,
whioh was sustained. I Yeas 49: nnvs 44.
, The question then turned on ordering the bill
engrossed, whion waa decided, yeas ov, nay4u.
Mr PARROTT moved that tbe bill be re
committed to th Judlclsry Committee, with In
structions to amend the last section so a to
make the penalty a fine. . , . - . .,,-.,-.
Mr. FLAGO said he was glad the question

sing tbi mixturelof race ;and be would Impret
upon tne House tne necessity oi wo niu- very
little argument had been offered a faot which
he regretted and Instead of argument, be bad
beard chitdj insult to the friends of the bill.
We ought to aarlouaiv provide against ino de
grading mixture, by whioh we may debase our-
ourselves, witnoul eievauna; ma coiorea race.
It.ls a much as the Anglo Baxon can do- to

- Mr. BRUFF moved lurtber to instruct tbe
oommlttee to amend the bill , so aa to prohibit
illicit mixture or the eclors a well aa luter
marriage. ; Mr. VORIS supported thi mr.tloo, and said h
thought,, this was a provision that would maka
the bill mora generally acceptable, it aot en
tirely so.J ' i .'!. ;'---
Mr. HlUH tbought tbe bill would be ot use
to prevent amalgamation.: H could not tx
peot it to be effectual. He regretted that tbe
discussion bad taken a political torn. ' Tbi wa
a question of State policy merely, that did o
affect national qncstion. He opposed the re
fereoc and Instrooliun. ''The amendment pro
posed would only weaken the bill lie was op
pesedto amalgamation, od said the Republi
cans were, as a party.- He bepad they would
