The Liberty Party of 1845.
We are indebted lor the fol
lowing extract from a speech of
Judge Chase at the formation
of 1H1 historical party, touWar
den's Life of Chase
What then, is tie posilion
of the political parliea of the
country in relation to this tub-
jac'f One of these parties pro-
femes to be guided by the most
liberal principles. 'Equal and
exact juetice to all men;' 'Equal
rigbls for all men;' 'Inflexible
opposition to oppression are its
favorite mottoen. It claims to
ne the true friend of popular
government, and aseumes (he
name of Democratic. Among
its members are, doubtless.
many who cherish its profes
sions as sacred principles, and
Lelieve that the great cause o
Ireednm and progress is to be
served by promoting its ascen
dancy. . But when we compare
the maxims of the so-called
Democratic party with Its acts,
us hypocrisy is plainly reveal
ed. Among its leading mem
bers we find the principal
slaveholders the chiefs of the
oligarchy. It has never scru
pled to sacrifice the rights o;
(lie free states, or ot the peo
ple, to the deaiands ol iheslave
power. Like bir Perlinax Mc
Sycophant,its Northern leaders
believe that the great secret ol
advancement lies In 'bowing
well.' No servility eeems loo
gross, tio self degradation too
great, to besubmit'ed to. They
thnk themselves well reward
ed if the unity of the party be
pieserved. and the spoils ol
victory secured. It, in the dis
tribution of t Iiese spoil', they
receive only the jackal's share.
they content 'themselves with
the relied Imi (hat I i 1 1 1 a is bet
ter than nothing. They de
claim loudly Hgainet all mn
otolies, all ppecial privileges,
all encroachments on pmonal
rights, all diutinctions lounded
upon birth, and coutpensate
themselves lor these tfTurtso:
virtue by practicing the vilest
oppression upon all their cun
ii vnu n in whose nomplexioiiH
the slightest trace ol Airican
derivation ctn bo delected.
Profoundly do we revere the
maxims of true Democracy; they
aie identical with those of true
L'hrifitianity in relation to the
rights and duties of men as citi
zens. And our reverence for
Democratic vrincrp'es is the pre
cise measure of our detestation
of the policy f those uho are
permitted to shape the action of
ihe Democratic party. Politic-
si concert wiih ihat .party, un '
der i i s present leadership, is
iherelore, phinly impossible.
Nor do tee entertain the hope,
which many, no doubt' honestly
cheribh, that the professed prin
ciples of the party will al length
Iring it right upon the question
of slavery. Its professed prin
eiples have been the same for
nearly hall a century, and jet
the subjection of the party to
the slave power, is at this mo
ment, as complete as ever
There ia no prospect of any
change for the better until
those Democrats whose hearts
are really possessed by a gen
erotis love of liberty for all,
and by an honest hatred of op
pression, shall manfully assert
their individual independence,
and refuse their support to the
panders of slavery.
"There is another party
which boasis that it is conserv
ative in its character. 'Its
watchwords are A 'tariff,' 'A
banking system,' 'The Union as
it ii.' ' Among its members, al
so, are many sincere opponents
of slavery; and the party itsell
seeking aid in the attainment
ol power, and anxious to carry
Ms favorite measures, unl
bound together by iiofuch pro
teased principles as secure the
unity of the Democratic party,
often concedes much to their
anti-slavtry views. It is not
I un willing in those (States and
parts of States where anti-slavery
setiment prevails, to as
sume an anti slavery attitude,
and claims to be an anti slav
ery 'party. Like-the Demo
cratic party, however, the
Whig prrty maintains alliance
wjh the slaveholder. It pro
poses in its national conven
tions, no action against slavery
It has no anti-slavery article in
its national 'creed. ' Amnne its
leaders and champions', in Con
gress and out of Congress, none
are so honored and trusted as
slaveholders in practice and in
principle.. Whatever the Whig
pir ty, therefore, concedes to anti
slavery, must be reluctantly con
ceded. Ms natural position is
conservative. Its natural Jine
of acion is to maintain things
as they are Its natural bond of
union is regard for interests
Ta ther than for rights There
are, doubtless, zealous oppo
nents of slavery who are also
zealous Whigs, but thev have
not the general confidence of
their parly; they are tinder the
ban of the slaveholder?; and in
iny practical anti-slavery
mo vement, as, lor example, the
repeal of the luwa which sane
lion slaveholding in the Dis
rirt ot Columbia, would meet
I he determined opposition of a
large and most influential sec
lion' of the party, not because
the people of the free States
would be be opposed to the
measure, but because it would
be .displeasing to the oligarchy
and lata! to party unily. We
are constrained to ihiiikihere
lore, that all expectation of effi
cient anti-slavery action from
the Wing party as now organ
ized, will prove delusive. Nor
do we perceive any probability
of a change in its organization,
separating its ami-slavery Irom
its pro slavery consiituenis.aitd
Uaving the former lri posses
sion ot the name and it fluence
of th party. With the Whig
party therefore, as at present or
ganized, it is as impossible for
us, whose mottoes are, KEqual
rights and fair wages for all
and The Union as it should be?
to act in alliance and concert,as
it is forvs to act with the' so
called Democratic party We
can not choose between those
parties for the sake of any lo
cal or partial advantage, with
out sacrificing consistt ncy.self
respect, and mutual confidence.
While we say this,weare bound
lo add, that, were either of these
parties to disappoint our expccla
tions, and to adopt into its NA
articles, the prinniples which we
regard as fundamental, and en
ter upon a course of unfeigned
and earnest action against the tyt
Urn of slavery, we should not he's
itate, regarding, as we do, the
question of slavery as the para
mount question of our day and
nation, to girt it our cordial and
vigorous supvori until slavery
should be no more..
The last ol the foregoing
sentences opens the way lo un
demanding of the following
extract: ,
With what party, Ihen, shall
we act! Or, shall we act with
none? Act, in some way, we
must; lor the possession of the
right ol suffrage, . the tight of
electing our own law-makers
and rulers, imposes upon us the
corresponding duty of voting
lor men who will carry out the
views which we deem of para
mount importance and obliga
tion. Act together , we' must,
lor, upon questions which we
regard as the most vital we are
fully agreed. We must act
then act together aud aot

ing at the same results as our

"That here is such a party is
well known. It is (he Liberty
party of the United Elates. Its
principles, we cordially ap
prove. It founds itself upon the
great cardinal principles of (rue
Democracy and of true Christian
ity, the brotherhood f the Human
Familg. It avows tts purpose to
wage war against slavekolding as
the direst form of oppression, and
then against every other species of
tyranny and injustice. ) It's views
on l he subject of slavery in this
country. reLiajhe; id ainTthe
same at those which We have
set forth in this "address: It
members agree to regard the
extinction of slavery -as1 rthe
most importantend. which can.
at this time, be proponed to po
litical action; and they agree
to differ as to other Questions
of . minor importance such' as
those of trade and currency, be
lieving that those can be satis
factorily disposed oft when tbe
question of slavery (8ha be
settled, and that until then hoy
can - not; be 'Satisfactorily dis
posed of at all.
"The rise of such a party as
this was anticipated long be
fore its 'actual organization, by
the single hearted, and patriot'
ic Charles Pollen, a Ut-rman by
birth, but a true American by
adoption and in sp.nt. ll there
ever is to be, in this country,'
he said, in 1833, a party thil
shal', tar. its name and charac

measures or popular men, but
Irom Us uncompromising and
consistent adherence to free
dom a truly liberal aud thor,

must direct its first decided el-
tort against, the grossest form,
i he most complete niauil'ebta-
lion ol oppression; anj having
taken anti-slavery ground, it
must carry out ihe principle oi
liberty in all its consequences.
It must support every measure
conducive lo the greatest pos
sible individual, aud social,
moral, intellectual, religious,
una political Ireedom, whether
that mea'sure be brought .for
ward by inconsistent slavehold
ers or consistent freemen. It
must embrace the whole sphere
ol human action, watching and
opposing the slightest illiberal
and anti republican tendency,
and concentrating its whole
force aud influence against
slavery Uselt, in comparison
with which every other species
of tyranny is tolerable,'' and by
which every other is strength
ened and justified.' ' : "u .
''Thus wrote Charles Follen
in 1836. It is impossible to
express better the want which
enlightened lovers of liberty
f. It of a real Democratic party
in the ' country Democratic,
not in name only, but in deed
and in truth. In this want,
thus felt, tbe Liberty party had
its origin, and, so long as this
want remains otherwise unsat
isfied, the Liberal party must
exist, not as a mere abolition
parly, but as a truly Democrat
to party, which aims at, the ex
tinction ot slatery, because
slaveholding is inconsistent
with 'Democratic principles;
aims at it, not as an ultimate
end, but as the most important
present object; as a great and
necessary step in the work ol
reform;, as an illustrious era in
the advancement of society, to
be wrought' out by its action
and instrumentality. t The Lib
trig party of 1845 ii in truth the
Liberty party of 1776 ' revived.
