TOM CUBWlft ON XILES STUMP, nis SPEECtl AT WOOSTER, OHIO?TUE OKDIUASCi: OP 1787 AND ITS EFFECTS?GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OP POPULAR SOVEREIGNTY. From the Cincirtnati Gazette, we take the following summary of Hon. Tom Corwin's re marks at a great meeting, the other day, in Wooster, Ohio: I may assure you.it will be entirely impossi ble for me to extend my voice to the outward limits of the crowd, because, as you must ob serve, it has been somewhat impaired by too hard usage during the lust Week or two. I would very gladly, if it could be so, agree that we should separate' upon what we have heard. I believe it would be preferable to us all, for I think enough has been said to enable every man who choses to exert the faculties with which God has endowed him, from what we now know to form a right appreciation of the manner in which he should vote on the second Tuesday in October, the near approach of which lias brought us together to day. You will observe that whenever yon are ad dressed?whoever speaks to you about public affairs this year, makes the burden of all he has fj say to you, turn in the main upon this ques tion "of Free or Slave territory. Clustering around these topics, which so engross and inter est the mind of all the Free States of this coun try, there are other kindred subjects. It would be an idle task, one the power of Mr. Douglas himself would have to knuckle to, the task ol coming out here to Ohio, to establish that it had been better for us in the year 1787, that' Slavery had been established among us, than that the ordinance made by the Congress of tlvp United Stales had excluded it from us. You never will be able to convince the people of a Free Slate, who have seen the benefit of what we call free institutions, who have seen the workings of free labor sis compared with forced labor; you never can get a people that have grown up under the influence of this free system, after what they have seen of the product of a system of forced labor, to go back to or adopt the other system; and while we are regarding the people of the South, as we call them, as in some sort inimical to us, 1 have always thought of tliehi as an unfortunate people, laboring un der the influence of an unfortunate system of things, and as being more entitled to our com iiiisscRition than to any of tho.-c feelings of resentment which controversies of this kind are but too apt to engender. The speaker continued by remarking that nil that the Free States ol the Union can ask, in the way of legislation, is the exercise of such power as is given under the Constitution, sub mitting the question to the people to be govern ed, and to abide by their decision. It has been agreed to make five negroes equal to three white men in the lialUof Congress, and although this may appear to be wrong, whatever shall be the fair and unbiased judgment of the majority must be the law for all. In 1S2U-21, the question oTSlavery seemed to have been settled. Nobody questioned the power of Congress to settle the question by .-aying that there should be no Slavery, beyond a certain line, in a Territory of the United States, and the able Cabinet or Mr. Monroe, with him self as President, approved of the bill in which that power was exercised. I hat Democratic sagacity which is now so boastfully paraded, seems then to have slept, and the discovery was made but four or five years ago, that the wisest and n>ost patriotic men of liie land had acted, when they had no power to act under the Con stitution. Where was Douglasand his excellent followers in 1S18, when Mr. Polk signed the biil organizing Oregon V When the Democratic divinity of Ohio, Col. Allen, was in Congress voting for the restriction ot Slavery; when he was usurping the power ol the people of the Territories, saving that they should have this gieat ble.ssing of human Slavery iu the Territory of Oregon? (Laughter.) Surely the people arc asked to believe that some revelation has come down?or up, (.laughter) and enlightened the intellects of one or two men, and these have scattered it ai ound among a considerable portion, ol what is called the Democratic party of tho North; a revelation which was concealed from all mankind from 1787 up to ISo-t. If all this be ti up, then no intellect in this Republic was competent to read it and understand it fur sev entyyeai s of our national existence. The old men in the nation are exceeded in wisdom by the young men who tell us, that the men w ho made the Constitution and went to woikaml acted un der it, did not comprehend the meaning of their own words and deeds. Now iuthe ) eai ofgiaco 1854, a gentleman comes from the prairies of Illinois, with all "the hearts or Egypt" about him, (laughter) and tells us that he has found out, that he knew better what Washington, and Madison and Jefferson meant when they framed the Constitution than they themselves. It that be si', let it no longer be said that the days ol miracles are passed away. This new scheme of Popular Sovereignty denies tho right of Con gress to legislate for the Territories, and yet the man who made that instument, out uf which the controversy all arises went to work and acted upon it as if they knew they had conferred that power upon themselves. Why do the Republicans wish to restrict Sla very in the Territories? Look . for a reply, to the States of the Northwest, and to those of tho South and Southwest. In the one Bet is free dom; in the other there is slavery. Look to Kentucky, older than Ohio, with a soil and cli mate as tine as that of Ohio, and then Iouk to this State, llere iu the Northwest ore States more prosperous and better adapted to the ends to which God has called man into existence than can elsewhere be found in the \toild, and these States grew out of tho Ordinance of l-87." Such a power it was, therefore, that he for one Republican desired to biing to bear upon the future States of the Union. Such was the intention of the Republicans in the Homestead bill, which was killed off by the Democrats.? Their aim was to settle upon the land ^the in dustrious but poor couples, that they might by "subsequential consequence'" have their families on their farms, rearing school houses for their children, and churches for them ail, instead of seeing the planter nourishing in the centre of his two thousand acres, surrounded by his ne groes, educating his children so that heieafter their chief labor would be to bet at a faro bank, or to win money at horse races, lie did not desire to he understood as saying that all the people of the South were or this class, but then system by its consequent idleness, becomes the mother of all the vices known in the world. THE PORTRAIT OF A SOVKRKlfiX. He had no idea of treating Mr. Douglas other than with respcct, but thai must not be oxpect ed to reach the argument of that gentleman. Gov. Chase had denominated that "great prin^ ciple" of "Popular Sovereignty" a "humbug." Ha believed that term had got to be of legitima e use in the English language, and so he ? oul I say that if there was anything to which it would <M>I>ly it was just to this thing. Popular Sov ereignty sounds well; it is the family name of our system of government; but the gentleman shows yon his Popular Sovereignty under a veil; he shows the people as the crowned mon arch of the world, and then he stops. But when you look further you sec this monarch strultirg about, when just at the moment that the sovcr~ eign is uttering his expression of congratulation, a little man comes up before, him and says, "I am Governor; down upon your knee.-, you pre tended sovereign. Before me I hold a com mission* from the 'man at Washington that" occupies the White House, a foreign Governor to yon; and the inalianable, God given rights that you prate about T Jiold in the hollow of my hand. There is tnv sovereign socptre: let me see your Bill; read your lucubration to me; let my royal ear drink in these ma tured thoughts of yours that you say are law;'' and when this "lion of the White House," or "cur dog" that has been sent, because, per haps he had a ballot-box under a wood pile, shows his teeth?this monarch, this embodi ment of sovereignty, lies down like a "puppy dog," and he says, wagging his tail, "Will it please your r03*al nature to allow me to make a law V" Now, says the Governor, holding his commission from the pro-slavery man at Wash ington, "You have made a law which says that I a man shall not come to this country with a negro, and I am appoi nted by a man who repre sents the South, and there a negro is property, and no tnoro property than a white man or horse. You are a fool; you don't understand the constitution of your country; the fathers that made that constitution were stupid, and did not understand it themselves; the men who acted under it for sixty years were unfriendly to it; here is, however, my royal scepter?bow down before it. I say Veto I"?and your sovereign walks oft' and hides himself behind a log.? There is no redress for him. The royal Govern or "has decided. (Prolonged laughter.) Does not the heart of every Democrat swell with un utterable emotions of glory when he thinks ol this. (Laughter.) When he first heard of it he rejoiced; in his imagination it appeared as though an angel were visiting the world; he re cognizes in the term given it for a name, that word which was baptized in the blood of the ! Revolutionary fathers. Ul'.u.iUti J.
