last amendments to the federal con

destroyed the fundamental principles
upon which this government was
tornu d, and that the rights of the
State and the people now, as con-
trusted wr.h those cmranteed

more alike than is a pure African
negro compared with a pure white

less enslavement to the negroes, lie
belongs now to our enemies, and not
to the catagory of our friends and

strayed from the true doctrine, in the
