In a speeclL in the United States

said :

In a r wei li iu the United States
Senate, in 1851, Mr. Clay denounced
Chase as an bolitiooist. He'sats:
Uj'on aiy word, if the Senator
(Mr. Chase) does not know what
Abolitionist means, when he hatprac-
liccd the doctrine for to mmy yean, 1
am sure I am unable to instruct or in
form him."
On the 22d of August, 1851, in fj
speech in the United States Senate, rj
reported in the 'Congressional Globe,;
Chase 6aid:
"I agree with the honorable Senator
then, to this extent, that the fugitive
clause ot the Constitution constitute?
an article of compact between the
States; and, I think, this proposition
once being established, it will be ex
tremely difficult lor any legal mind, U
any train ot logical lessoning, to d
rive Irom that compact between Stats
a power of legislation to the Federil
Government. 1 repeat that, iu irn
judgment, each Slate must judge for (t
sell as to the character of the compact,
and the extent of the obligations crea
ted by it."
In his speech accepting the nomina
tion for Governor at the 13th of July
Convention, Chase said: '
"On many pubtic questions not now
directly iu issue I have had occasion
heretofore to express my opinions in
various forms. Those opinions re
main on record and unchanged.'

In a speech on Long Island, on the
1st of August, 1855, William Lloyd
Garrison, a distinguished Black Re
publican Leader, says:
"There is no Union,Union is equal

no Union about. We have no rights
even as white men. Why continue

and when it goes slavery will go witn
it, and tue slaves will rise up, and I
