E?erv hing that 1 have , 1 had both as regards life and property, has j been puriied in this cau-e. and I liiink that I u'ldersland what should be the true directio.. of this question, and what coarse of policy would result iti the .amelioration and ultimate elevation n?t o.iiy of ihe col- ored, but of tlie great mass ol the people or the United S ates. I say that if 1 have not given evidence thai I arn a friend of hu manity, and especially the friend of the col- ored man, in my past conduct, there is no h- ing that I can row. do thai would. Ill know myself and iho feelings of my own heart, they have been for the colored man. I have owned slaves and bought slaves, but I never sold one. I might say, however, that practically, so far as my con nection with slaves has gone, I have been their slave instead cf their being mine. Some have even followed here,hi!e others are occupying and enjoying my prrper'.y with my consent. For the colored race my means, ray time, my a'l has been perilled, and now, al this late day, after giving tan gible evidence, I arn fr?o to tell you that I 1 do noi like to be arraigned by some who can get up handsomely rounded periods, and deal in rhetoric talk about abstract ideas of liberty, who never perilled life, liberty or property. This kind of theoretical, Isollov unpractical friendship amounts to hut very iiiiie. . While I say that I am a friend of the colored man,! do not want to adopt a policy that I believe will end in a. contest between the races, which if7persis:ed .n, will result in the extermination of one or the other. God fotbid that I snocia De eugageu m mca 1 a work now. It is always beet to talk prao- lieally and.jn a common sense way. Yfs, I have said, and I repear; it here, that it the colored man in the United States could find no other Moses, or any Moses that would be more able and efficient than myself, 1 woold be hit. Moses to lead him from bond age to freedom ; that I would pass him from a land where be had lived in elavery to a land (if it were in our reach) of freedom. Yes, I would be willing o pass with hirn through the Red-S'eawo the land of promise, to Ihe land of liberty ; bet I am not vcilJirg, under either circumstances, to adopt a poli cy which will only result in the sacrifice of his life mid the shedding of bis blood. We talk atont justice we talk about rifht We say the wf:ite man has been. in ihe wrorii; in keeping the black man w s'a vrry a long us he has. That is all true. Again w e talk about the Declaration of In depencence, and quali:y be.'or9 Ibe law. .You ut.der?land all that, and know Uox to appreciate it. Bji now let us look each other in the face. Let r.s go to the gr!n: mass of colored men throughout the slave States. Let us take the condition in which they are ai the present time (and it is bed enocgh we all know)and suppose by Borne magic you could say to every one, "You shall vote to-morrow." How much wocld that ameliorate their condition at this time ? Mr. Docglass Mr. President: Do you wish The President I arn not qnite through yet. Slavery has been abolished A great national guarantee hasbem given one that cannot be revoked . I was getting at the re lation that subsided between the white man and the colored man. A very small propor tion ol white persons, comparpd wiih the whole number of such, owned the colpred people of the South. I miahl instance the Sia:e of Tennessee in illasiraiion. There were twenty-seven non-sl.ive:io!ders to one slaveholder, and j et the slave power cdi IroII-ed .tbat Srate. Let us talk abont the matter as it is.

Where such is the cae. vre know there is an eumiiy, we know there is abate. 1 he poor white mart, cn. the other hand, was opposed to the slave and his master, for the colored men ar.d his mavor combined kept hirn i i slavery by depriving him of a fair participation in the lalur and ; production of the tich land of the country. Don't yoo kuow that a colored man in going to hunt a master (a they call it) lor the ; Rext year, preferred hiring to a man who owned slaves rather than one who did cot know the fact, at all events.

Mr. Douglass Because he wouldn't be j treated as weil.

The whitman was per-1 mit.ed to vote before government was deri- j ved from him. He part and parcel ol the j political machiuety, not by ret eii o:i cr revolution. And when yon come back to the i-bjct of this war you li-d . that the abolition r! , slavery. was not one .of tbe olj-cts. C: n-, gres, a' d ihe President himself, d?c!ar 1 thai it was w&ged on ocr par: ia ord.T to. s suppress the rebellion. Tl.e abolitit n of j elavery ha come as an incident to the sup pression of a great rebellion as an incident ; and as an incident w'e 6hou!d give it the I 1 proper direction. ihe colored man went j into this rebellion a slave. By the operation j of ihe rebellion he came out a . freedan, eqoil to Ireedmen in other portions of the country. Then there is a great deal 'one for him on ihU point. The non-slaveholder who was forced into the rebellion, and wu as loyal as those thai lived beyond. th lim its of the State, was cariied iijto it, an I his property, in a number of instances ihe Jives o! such were sacrificed, and he who has survived has come out of it with nothing gtined, but a gra! deal lost. Now, upon a principle of jnstire, should they be placed in a' condition different from what they were before. On the one hand or.e hai a'.taired.a great deal ; ' on the other band one ha lost a great deal,ahd, iu a po litical point of view, scarcely stands where he did before. Now we are talking about where we are going to begin. We have got a: the bate that exists between the two racesi The query comes np whether thee two races situated as they were before whether the one should be turned .loose upo.) the other and be thrown together at iho baflot box wall this enmity and .hate exfsting between them. You have spoken about government Where is power derived from 1 ' We eay it is derived from the people. Let us take 't so, and refer to the District of Columbia by way of illustration. Suppose, for instance, herein this political community, which ti a certain extent most have government, rnuM have law, and potting il cpou the broadest basis you can put i' j tnke into consideration the relation which ihe .white has heretofore borne to the colored race ; is it proper ta fcrce pon this community without their consent the elective Iratichiee without regard to color, making it univer.-ai? Now, where do yon begin ? Government must have a controlling power must have a lodgment. For instance, suppose Cor, ftess should pass a law aalLcriziug an elec tion to te held, at v. Jsich all over twenty-one years cf age, withont regard to color should be allowed lo vo;e, and. a majority should decide at scch election that the elective franchise should net be cniverssl, vvtiat would you do about i: ? Who would settle it 1 Do jou deny that first great principle of ihe riilhl of the people to govern them selves 1 Will you resort to an arbitrary power, and ea a Minority of thi people snail receive a slate cf things they are op posed to ? Mr. Douglass That was said before the Wilf. The President I am now talking about a principle, riot what somebody elre said. Mr. Downing Apply what "you have said, Mr. President to South Carolina, for instance. The President Soppne yon uo to South C.roina suppose, -vou no K O:io that does not chart ire if.e principle at all. The query to whicn I have referred still comes up when Ihe government is undergoing a fundamental change. The government com - rrwnced coon this nriucioie : it has existed up?n it, and you propose now to irCorpo rste into it en elemar.t that d:d not exist be fore. I gay the qr.ery comes op. in under taking this thing, whether we have a right to make a change in regard lo the elec ive franchise in Ohio, for instar.ee whether we shall nctjet the people in that S'.ite decide ! the poor who who wil. ral.y wmi lnm there the mafer Icr themselves ? . in this conflict that yoa speak of between Each cemmunitv is better prepared to dd- the wealthy slaveholder and Ihe poor man. termine the depository of its political pow- j The President Yoa touch right npon the cr than any tody else, and il is for the Leg- i poir.t there.
