Mr. Clay's Speech at Frankfort.
The concluding part of the speech
we give entire. ; .
Thus, Mr. Speaker, I trust and be
lieve tbat of all the numerous threat
ening topics connected with slavery
at the commencement of the late
session of Congress, one only re
mains to create interest and solid
tnde.and that is the fugitive slaye bill
IN arrowed down to that ' singi
ground, the slave holding States wi
occupy the vantage position.
The constitution is with them, and
if its execution shall be opposed
attempted to be thwarted by force
that State which makes such an op
Tosition wi'l place itseli clearly, man
ifestly and indisputably in the wrong
occopving such a ground that the
slaveholding Slates may fearlessly
and consistently await the issue
was not to be expected, nor did
expect that the measures adopted at
the last session of Congress woul
lead to immediate and general ac
quicsence on the part of the ultras at
the Worth and at the South. They
had been impelled by such violent
and extreme passions, that it was too
much to expect that they would si
lently and promptly admit their er
rors, and yield to what had heen
aone tor me oesi interests ot our
common country. Accordingly, we
perceive tnat at the bouth that sec
ond edition of the Hartford Conven
tion has again assembled, and is la
boring to stir up strife and conten
It
tton, and in several of the tlavehol
ding States the spirit of discord and
discontent is busily engaged in its
unpatriotic work, but 1 confidently
anticipate that all their mad efforts
will be put down by the intelligence,
the patriotism and the lovs of Union
of the various slaveholding States.
And here, Mr. Speaker, let us make
momentary inquiry as to what
would have been the condition of
the confederacy, on the subject of
slavery, if unhappily it had been sev
ered.
Assuming that the line could have
been drawn between the slavehol
ding and the non-slaveholding States
all north of the States ol Maryland
and Virginia and all north of the
Ohio river would have become a for
eign independent sovereign power;
contrast, il you please, our present
condition with what it would have
been under that order of things. At
present, we have a right if any slave
escapes from service to demand his
surrender. We have a right to take
the Constitution and the law in our
hand and to require the surrender,
. a. a .
i do not believe there will be any
open or (orcible resistance to the ex
ecution of the law the people of the
XNorth have too strong a sense of the
propriety of the obedience to the law;
but if there be any such resistance,
we have the right to invoke the em
ployment of any part of the militia
of the United States, or the Army or
the Navy of the United States, to
enforce the Execution of the law.
And, although I have no power to
command Presidant Fillmore to any
specific line of duty, I have known
him long, well, and intimately, and I
leei entire confidence in him as a man
of ability and. honesty, and of pat
riotism, who will perform his duty,
and his whole duty, in seeing to the
effectual execution of the laws of the
land, to which I pledge the support
the utmost of my poor ability.
In the exciting state of things, we
doubtless shall not recover all our fu
gitive slaves that escape. v We shall,
however, recover some, and the
Courts and Juries in the free States
have demonstrated their readiness to
give, by their verdicts and judg
ments, ample indemnity against those
who entice, seduce away, and harbor
our runaway slaves. But how
would the case stand in a dismember
ed Constitution of the Confederacy? '
Then we would not have a right
demand a solitary slave that might
escape '. beyond the Ohio, ' into what
would then be a foreign power.
If all the slaves of Kentucky, in
that contingency, were to flee be
yond the Ohio river, we would not
have a right to demand one of them
the absence of extradition treat
ies, and no such treaties would ever
concluded with respect to slaves.
We should have no right to demand
surrender of one of them.. .Noth
ing is clearer in. the whole public law
Nation! than that one independent
foreign power is not bound to surren
der a fugitive who takes refuge in an
other independent foreign power.,
We' have recently seen this great
interna ti6nal ' principle acted upon
by the Sultan of Torkey in the case
Kossuth and' his Hungarian com
panions, who took refuge in the Sul
tan's dominions, and his, refusal to
surrender them , upon the demand

tically admired, approved and ap
plauded by all of us.

Nowj Mr. Spealer , we have the
Constitution, the Law, and the right,
on our side. Dissolve the Confede
racy, and create new and indepen
dent powers, the law. and the right
would be transferred from us to them,
I may be asked, as I have been asked,
when I would consent to a . disso
lution of the Union? I answer nev
er! never! never! because I can con
ceive of no possible contingency that
would make it for the interest and
happiness of the people to break up
this glorious Confederacy, and to
seperate it into bleeding and bellige
rent parts.
Show me, what I believe to be
impossible to show roe, that there
will be a greater security for liber
ty, life, property, peace and human
happiness in the midst of jarring,
jealous and , warring independent
North Amencan powers, than un

would hold to it if Congress were to
usurp power, wnicn i am sure
never will, to abolish slavery within
the limits of the Stales; for in the
contingency ol such a usurpation,
we should be in a better condition as
to slavery, bad as it would be, out of
the Union than in the Union. Ap
prehensions have been entertained
and expressed as to the world in fu
ture time, of Territorial scope for
the slave population. I believe, that
a very distant day, not likely to oc
cur in the present or next century,
whenever the vast unoccupied wastes
in Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana,
Alabama, Florida and Texas shall be
come fully peopled, slavery will
have reached its natural termination
The density of the population in
the United States will then be so
great that there will be such reduc
tion in ihe price and value of labor,
as to render it much cheaper to em
ploy free than slave labor, and slaves
becoming a burden to their owners,
will be voluntarily disposed of, and
allowed to go free. Then I hope
and believe, under the dispensations
nd blessings of Providence, that. the
continent of Africa, by the system
of colonization, will be competent to
receive from America all the descen-
ants of its own race. If the agita
tion in Tegard to the fugitive slave
law should continue and increase.and
become alarming, it will lead to the
foundation of two new parties, one
for the Union and the other against
the Union. . Present parties have
been created by the division of opin
ion as systems of. National policy;
and as to finance, free trade, or pro
tection, the improvement of rivers
and harbors, the distribution of the
proceeds of public lands, &c; but
these systems or policy, springing out
ol the administration of the govern
ment of the Union, lose all the inte
rest and importance if that Union be
dissolved. They sink into utter in
significance before the all-important
pervasive and paramount interest of
the Union itself, and the platform of
that Union party will be the Union,
the Constitution.and the enforcement
of its laws; and if it should be neces
sary to form such a party, and it
should be accordingly formed, I an
nounce myself in this place a member
of that Union party whatever may
baits component element's. Sir, I
go farther.. I have had great hopes
and confidence in the principles of the
Whig party, as being most likely to
conduce to the honor, the prosperity
and the glory of my country, but if it
to be merged into a contemptible
abolition party, and if abolitionism is
be engrafted on the Whig creed,
trom that moment 1 renounce the
party and cease to be a Whig. I go
yet a step farther. If I am alive 1
will give my honorable support for
the Presidency to. that man, to what
ever party he ma v belong, who is un-
contaminated by fanaticism, rather
than to one who, crying out all the
time, and aloud, that he is a Whig,
maintains doctrines utterly subver
sive of the Constitution and the Un
ion. . . . ' " , .
Mr. Speaker, I speak without re
serve, and with entire freedom: it
there be a man who treads the soil
this broad earth that feels himsel!
perfectly independent, 1 am that
man. ; I have no ambitious' aspira-rations.-1
want no office, no sta
tion in the gift of man. ' I would re
sign that which I hold, if I thought
could do so at this time with honor.
beg pardon, sir, there is one place
only which I dosire, and that is a
warm place in your hearts. - -
Out of our late heated discussions
and' divisions' one good Tesult has
been produced; the people, generally,
Whig .and Democrats,' have been
more thrown" together in ' free and
friendly interroure; both have learned-to
appreciate each other.' For
myself, 1 say alike with truth and
pleasure, thatbrieg the late ardu
ous and protracted, session, I was in
conference and- consultation, as of-

than Whigs, and I found in the Den
ocratic party, quite as much patriot
ism, devotion to the Union, honor
and probity, as in the other party.
; Mr. Speaker, the Stale of Ken
tucky, although net one of the largest
States in point of population, occu
pies a proud and lofty position in the
confederacy. She was the pioneer
Slate in the settlement of this great
valley.'; She is geographically not
remote from the centre of the Union
to which she has always been firmly
attached. The renown of her arms
and the uncalculating gallantry of
her people, are well known and ad
mitted. To every field of battle
within her reach since the days of
. - .
the revolution, her sons have rushed,
and poured out freely their rjatrlotic
: r
blood. That SDlendid monument be-
yond a hill, overlooking this oictur-l
esque valley, . so . creditable to the
sculptor for the beauty of its classi-
cal design and the excellence of it-
chaste execution, attest their glory
and the afflicting loss of their friends
and country.
Covered as the column almost is
with the names of the heroic dead,
let us cling to the Union until there
is not a space left upon the marble
or ' inscribing 1 the names of those
who may hereafter fall in fighting
the battles of their common country,
Whilst the ' Northwestern States-
Pennsylvania, Virginia, 1 Tennessee
and Kentucky remain firm in their
attachment to the Confederacy, no
presumptuous hand will dare to at-
tempt to draw successfully, a line of
its seperation. - "
In conclusion, Mr. Speaker, I re-
new an expression of my respect-
lul acknowledgment for the distin-
guished honor of this occasion. It
will form an epoch in my lire. will
be ever cherished most gratefully in
my memory, and will be transmuted
to my descendants as a precious leg-
acy to them.
