Speech of John llossack.
The following is the speech of Mir. IIos
sack, addressed to Judge Drumrtipnd, of
the TJ. S. District Court nt Chicna,' in re
ply to the usual question, whether the
prisoner had anything to say why tee sen
tent-? of the law should not be pronounced
against him. We publish it as a matter of
local interest, wholly dissenting, of course,
from most of the positions taken by JIr. II.
May it tilease the Court: I have; few
words to sny why sentence should iot be
pronounced against me. I am found guil
ty of the Fugitive Slave Law, and it may
appear strange to your Honor that I have
no sense of guilt. I came, sir, from the
tyranny of the Old World, when but a
lad, landed upon the American shores,
having left my kindred and native land in
pursuit of some place whore men of toil

nothing that snould destroy any sympa

Surely 1 have been protected. The fish
in the rivers, the quail in the stubble, the
deer in the forest, have been protected.
Shall I join hands with those who have
made wicked laws, in crushing out the
poor black man. for whom there is no pro
tection but in the crave, where the wick
ed cease from troubling and the weary are
at rest.
It is true. sir. I am a foreigner. I first
saw the liht among the rugged but free
hills of Scotland; a land, sir, that never
was conquered, aud where a slave never
breathed Let a slave set foot on that
shore, and his chains fall olf forever, and
he becomes what iod made him a man
In that fur oil' land 1 heard of vour free
institutions, vour i.r.iirie lands, vour jiro-
p-cte.l canals and vour growing towns.
Twenty-two years ago I landed in this
city. I immediately engaged on the pub
lic works on tie' canal then building, that
connects this city with the great river of
the We-t. In the process of time the
State failed to piocure money to carry on
the public works. I then opened a prairie;
farm to get bread for my family, and 1
am one of the men that made Chicago
what it is today, bavin

the fir-t gram that was exporte
this city 1 am, sir, one ol tne pioneers
of Illinois, w ho have gone through the
many hardship of the settlement of
new country. I hav s.j-nt my lest days
the strength of my manhood. I have
eleven children who are natives of this
my adopted country. No living man, sir,
has greater interest in its welfare; and it
is because I am opposed to carry out wick
ed and ungodly laws, and love the free
dom of my country, that I stand before
you today.
Again, sir, I ought not to be sentenced
because, as has been argued bv the prose
cution. I am an Abolitionist. 1 have no !
apologies to make for being an Abolition
ist. When I to this country, like the
mass from beyond the sea, I was a lmo
crat; there was a charm in the name.
Hut, fir, 1 soon found I had to go beyond
the name of a party in thi.s country, in or
der to know anything of its principles or
practice. I soon found that however the
great parties of my adopted country dif
fered upon banks, taritis and land ques
tions, iu one thing they agreod, in trying
which could ttoop th9 lowest to gain the
favor of the mot cursed system of slavery
that ever swayed an iron roil over any na
tion, the Moloch which they had set up,
to which the' ottered as human sacrifice
millions of the children of toil. As a
man who had tied from the crushing aris
tocracy of my native land, hew can 1 sup
port a worse aristocracy in this land? 1
was compelled to give iny humble name
aod influence to a party who proposed at
least to embrace in its sympathies, all
classes of men, from all quarters of the
globe. In this choice I found myself in
the com pi ny of Clarkson and Wilberlorce
in my native land, and Washington and
Franklin, and many such in this boasted
land of the free; and more than all these,
the IJedeemor in whom I humbly trust
for acceptam e with my (Jod, who came to
heal the broken hearted, to preach delive
reiice to the captive, to set at liberty those
who were bruised, yea, this rery religion
binds me to those in bonds as bound
with them. Teli me, sir, with these views
can 1 be anything but an Abolitionist?
Surely for this I ought not to be sentenced.
Again, sir, I ought not be sentenced, be
cause the fugitive slave law under which
I am torn from my family and business
by the subtle tools of the siave power, the
slave breeder and slave hunter, is at va
riance with both the spirit and the letter
of the Constitution. Sir, I place myself
upon the Constitution in the presenc of
a nation who have the Declaration of In
dependence read to them every fourth of
July, and profess to believe it. Yes in
the presence of civilized man, I hold up
the Constitution of my adopted country
as clear from the blood of men and fron a
tyranny that would mike crowned heads
blueh. The parties who prostituted the
Constitution to the support of slavery, are
traitors; traitors not only to the liberties
of millions of enslaved countrymen, but
traitors to the Constitution itself, which
they have sworn to support A foreigner
upon your soil, I go not to the platforms
of contending parties to find truth. I go,
sir, the Constitution of my country; the
word slave is not there to be found. I
read, "We, the people of the United
States, establish justice," yes, sir, esta
blish justice "to promote the general
welfare and to secure the blessing of lib
erty to ourselves and our posterity, do or
dain and establish this Constitution for
the United States of America." Those
were the men that had proclaimed to the
world that all men were created equal,
that they were endowed by their Creator
with certaiu inalenable rights Life Liber
ty and the pursuit of Happiness; and con-
tenked even unto ueatn lor seven long
years. Can it be, sir, that these great men
under cover of those hallowed words, in
tended to make a government that should
outrage justice and trample upon liberty,
as no other government under the whole
heavens ever dene. This dreadful power
that has compelled the great political par
ties of the country to creep in the dust
for its power ; that has debauched te a
large extent the Christianity of the nation ;
that bids a craven priesthood stand with
golden rule in hand and defend the rob
bing of mothers- of thtir babes, and hus
bands of their wives; that bids courts de
cree injustice. Sir, I plant myself upon
the Constitution, or temand for justice
and liberty, and say to this bloody Moloch,
away I Sir, th world has never furnished
so great a congregation of hypocrites an
as those that formed the Constitution, if
they designed to make it the greatest
slave-holder, slrve-breeder and i-lave eat'-h-er
oa earth. Ho is a s:reat slaveholder
that has a thousand slaves, but if this law
is si true exponent of the Constitution,
this government ordained for justice and
liberty, holds four millions of slaves.
sir! no! for the honor of the fa
thers of my country, I appeal from the
bloody slaveholding statute to the liberty
loving constitution. While these father's
lived, .State after State, iu carrying out tho
spirit of the constitution, put an end to
the dreadful system. The great Washing
ton, in his last will and testament, carried
out the spirit of the constitution. I!ut,
sir, the law under which von mav sen
tence me, violates loth the "letter and the
spirit of the constitution. I have a word
to say upon the articlesof the constitution
which it is claimed the fugitive slave law
is designed to carry out. " Xo person held
to service or labor in one State- under the
laws thereof, escaping into another, shall
in consequence of any law or regulation
theruin, be discharged from such service
of Tabor, but shall be delivered UpcrtttteM
claim of the party to whom such service
or labor is due."
That is the provision that it is claimed
transforms the government into a mon
ster of ini'iuity. I have road over and
over that article, interpreted by till laws of
language known to a plain man. How

and offers him a bribe to trarr.ple right ai d
libeity under foot. I know, s,ir, it may be
said Jim tiray was a slave, and ml entitled
to thee humane provisions. Had he ne
ver worn the chain of the oppressor, nor
felt the lash of the bloody ta-k master
had he been born in Canada, or anywhere
else on the plobe had he hern a citizen of
one of the States of this Union, and never
been enslaved, it would have been all the
same. Hislibertv would have been strick
en down, and he been given to the party
claiming his life-long toil and your Com-
missioner would have pocketed the bribe
oflered by this law for doing such a crime
against humanity and the plainest provi
sions ot the Constitution.
No, sir, in a Court of the United States,
while the Constitution provides for trial by
jury, I ought not to be sentenced for rais
ing my hand to rescue a fellow man from
a mob that would strip him of his liberty
and life-long toil without duo process of!
law, without trial bv jury. Sir. this law I
tramples so flagrantly upon the spirit ami
l.il.- .i it. 1 Vt.i..i.... aK.A I -..-l A.-a,
lettr of the Constitution, that I ought not
to te sentenced.
Before passing from the Constitutional
objections to this law, I would call the at
ten'ion of your Honor to the partiality of
the law, which is so at variance with the
designs of the fathers in organizing this
government. No man can read the Con
stistution in which the word slave cannot
be fouud; from which the idea that a man
could be reduced to a thing, and held as
property, was carefully excluded no man,
I say, can read that Constitution, and
coma to the conclusion that slavery was to
be fostered, guaranteed cuul piotceted far be
yond everything else in the country. Ad
mit that Jim Gray was Phillip's property,
how comes it that that particular property
is more sacred than any other property ?
Phillip's horse escaped from him, and is
found in a distant State, but the President
of the United States, and every depart
ment of Government, is not put on the
track until the horse is found, and then
return him to Phillip's stable, and then
pay the whole bill from the nation's treas
ury. No sir. But his sl?e escapes he
runs away, and, for sonio reason, his
property in man is so much more
holy and sacred, that the whole Govern
ment is bound to take the track and hunt
the poor, panting fugitive down, and carry
him back to his chains aud bondage at the
Government's expense.
Sir, under a Constitution unstained by
the word slave, we have a law magnifying
slave property above all other property in
the nation a lawgiving it guarantees that
no ether property could possibly obtain.
Sir, the partiality of this law is so great,
that it stands opposed to a Constitution
that guarantees equal justice and protec
tion to all.
John G. Fee is driven out of his Ken-
tucky home, and robbed of the fruits of
his life long toil. There is no power to se
cure him his home, or protect him in his
rights of property or opinion. But had
John G. Fee enly owned a slave, and his
slave escaped, the Government, under this
law, would have followed his slave to the
utmost limits of the United States, and re
turned his slave to him at its own ex
pense. Y'our Houor will pardon me, (if I
need pardon,) but I cannot, for the life of
me, see what there is in robbing a man of
his inalienable rights and enslaving him
for life, that should entitle it to the special
and peculiar protection of national law. .
I am aware, sir, that I shall be reminded
that judges, marshals, attorneys and many
citizens regard this law as constitutional,
and stand ready to execute it, though it
trample every principle of the Declaration
of Independence in the dtML Sir, no law
ran be enacted o bad but that it will find
men deluded or bae enough to execute it
The law of Kgypt that consigned the new
born babe to the slaughter, lound tools lor
its execution. The Moody decree of IIc-
rod, found men ready to obey the law of
i the country, though it commanded the
! slatighti-r of the inr.occnts of the province.
Sir, tell me not of men ready and willing
j to execute the law. My Redeemer, whose
j name I am hardly worthy to speak, and
j yet whose name is all my trust, although
he knew no sin, yet he was crucified by
Again, sir, it will be seen that some
whom Uiv world calls lctors of divinity
and doctors of law, have undertaken to
prwve slavery was guaranteed by the Con
stitution. If that be so, in the name of the
Host lIighiod, tear out the red strip of
blood; it was not written by the Angel
(Jabriel, nor nailed to the throne of tho Al
io ghty. If slavery is in it, it is a covenant I
with death and an agreement with hell.
Hut, sir, I have one consideration more
that I will urge why sentence should not
be pronounced against me. This law,
which i think I have proved outrageous
to the rights of man, is so obviously at via-ria-.ioe
with the law of that Cod that com
mands me to love Him with all my soul,
mind ami strength, and my neighbor as
myself, and the Redeemer that took upon

Having wasted the time for action, and
restored darkness and de-pair at home, 1

this country with your grand dogmas and
theories; to repeat precisely the same ex-
I pioded experiments and absurdities. When j
, your own house was ou hie, instead ol
j rushing to the rescue of its inmates, you
' sounded th.) big trumpet of a "universal
republic," "we must free Poland," "we
must free Italy," "all the world must be
free." Such were your valorous shouts. Put

: jlls,tead of talking aboi "r-irialism
i nes tc secret of their success.
But to return to my proposition. Al
though not reared like you, sir, in a col
lege or university, and having but a plain
and limited education, I am learned
enough to understand the Constitution of i
this country, which teaches me that this
republic is a confederacy of independent
sovereign States, each entitled to enact iu
own lawa for the projier management of
its own local ailairs, without dictation
from any other State, or from the Congress
ftf the United States, or from any power
outside the jurisdiction of such State. In
proposing myself as an opponent to you, I
hope you will be too generous to class me
with those Germans whom your party
charges vith following the Democratic
banner through ignorance. Against this
charge, which has been repeatedly made
by your party, I most solemnly protest,
and still further no I protest against the
unfounded boast that a majority of the
adoptwd citizens and by "citizens," 1
mean men who have a rielu to vote, who
have any sympathy with the dogmas of
the Republicau party. The industrious
mechanic knows only too well that his lv
bor will be rewarded properly only so long
as we maintain the Union, and that he will
gain nothing, out lettins loose a hit do of
African negroes, with no aspiration, and no
wants familiar to the European or Ameri
can mechanic. He knows to well that all
the cries about the "poor bondman," are
only proffered in the hope of obtaining fat
offices thereby : because ho has tho unde
niable fact before his eyes that no man,
even the most fanatical Abolitionist, asso
ciates with the African, even if he is a free
born man. The people know too well fliat
the negro is nothing but the stirrup from
which the negro-worshipper means to vault
into the seat of power.
In point of fact, nearly all those of our
countrymen who make so much noise
about this slavety question aro the young
immigrants, the majority not able to speak
tlu Luglish language, and not yet entitled
to vote. Sir, these are the ma.-sea who
form the majority of tho "intelligent Ger
mans," you sir i your party so loudly pro
claim as your ti.ppoi ters. But, sir, the
masses of the German adopted citizen
who have a right to vote are lotal to the
Constitution transmitted to us by the
Father ot the American republic, and
consider that sacred instrument as the
vovjna ch.irta of our Hlitical rights and
liberties, and not, as your associates do,
"an agreement with death, and a cove
nant with hell." The majority of the Ger
man adopted citizens w ill follow no leader
who will not uphold the Hag and " keep
step to the music of the Union" a union
cf Slave States and free States a union
formed by the people of twelve States and
but one free State.
We declare further that we hold only
to that kind of "higher law" which has
iu foundation in the Constitution ami is
in perfect harmony with that instrument,
and not to the kind of bhjiWr law which
originates in the brains of theorists, ex
perimentalists and Utopians.
If it does not suit you to meet me in
Boston, which appears to me the most lit
ting place, 1 am willing to meet you in
any town or city this or tho other side of
Mason & Dixon s line Philadelphia, Mil
waukee, Richmond, Va., or New Orleans,
La. '
Sir, it took you the other day, ia- New
I York, three hours and a half to ab4se one
j man without' cier proving one potnl
i against his doctrines to which, let me tell
I you. I do not jafi. in all their dttails, sut.
i scribe, but I, a plain, humble, uneduqated
j nian (crinalry a m'-chamc a cabinet
: maker) propose to demolish the whole
structure of the Republican party in tif
tecn minutes, provided you will answer air
the questions I shall put to you, fairly and
J hope you will receive this communica
tion in the same kind spirit rfi which it hf
tendered you,- fnd ha?e th honor to sas--
cnoe foyself.
Yours respectfully,

The only real objection to the doctrine?
