MILLARD FILLMORE'S CREDENTIALS FOR
Let us first take the question of slavery -
the only questionlupon which his friends in
this State Iase his claims to popular estimation.
Listen to this letter:

Commitee nppointed by the antislavery society of
the county of Erio has .hinlt come to hnnd. You so.

First. D)o you believe that petitions to Congress

T am much engaged. and have no time toenter into
an argument, or to explain at length my rensons for
my opinion. I shall, therefore, for the presunt, con
tent myself by answering AL.. your interrogntoriemm
in the AlrIIt.MATIYE. and leave for some future occa
sion a more extendmd diocussion of the sbhjoct.
Very respectfully, MILLARD FILLMORE.
This is the first footprint-where do we find
the second? On the 20th day of December, l
1 30, Rice Gnrlnnd introdneedr in the lower
House the following resolutions:
1. Resolved. That the freedom of speech. of tlher'
press. and of the people peaceably to nsoa.mble and to
petition the government for a redress of grievances. I
are rights secured to every citizen of the United I
States: lint in the exertce of these rihlts and privl
leres no eitizn or lnodv of people in one State of
this Un'nn. has the ri,.ht so to loe them as to dler've
the citizens or people iin notlher Stahte of tlh'r rich' I
and privileves. or of the property secured to thlim
by the constitution and laws.
2. Re-olyed That the power given by tlle cnnati- I
tution to Onllreas. to exercise excleiive legislation.
In all eases whntsnover. over such distriet (not ex- I
ceedine ten miles plnareo an may. hy celnion of par- 1
ticular States and flth neceeptanelc nf('ongress, becn mo
the sent of government ofthe U'nited States. gives no
right or authority to take tile probate property of
any citizen in such district for public uise without I
jtust comp.nsatlon : and much less does it confer the I
power to take such property for no uie at nll. with
out the consent of the citlzens immedinhtlv interest
ed. and without making any conmpensntion for it.
3. Resolved. That the initerfirnef byiv the citizens '
of any of the Ssttes with tllhe'lew to the nabolition of I
alnrervtln t'1 Prntrinrc P .'r C 1uulnnin. In e'llnutllgernier
thlle rirht. and ocurity of th1e people of the District
nad that any ant or menanre of ('nnrress designed to
nlol'vlh a'erv In this District. would be a violation I
of the tlith implied in the cessions made by the States 1
tof Virginia and Manrland of said territory. a just
canoe of alarm to the people of the slaveholding
Staten and have a direct and inevitable tendency to
l!-tract and unilanxer this Union.
4. Resodlved That the House will not consider any
proposition. petition. remonstrnnee, memorial, reso
Intion. motion or paper. asking or requirlng. or In
any manner relating to, the abolition of slavery In
tlih District of Columbia or the Territories, nor will
this House conslder any proposition, petition, remon
strance, memorial, resolution. motion or paper. ask
in or requiring. or in any manner relating to. the
abolition of the slave trade in the District of Colnm
hia. or among the several States of this Union.
Fillmore voted with Johni Q. Adan.s of
Mnss., nnml Wim Slade of Vermont, and Gid
dings of Ohio. those inotorious abolitionists,
aru,lhnt thise i'resnllltions.
Mr. Th'lomlpson of South Carolina, on the
14th of J.Tnary, 1840, offered in the House,
the following resolution:
R,-slvred. That upon the presentation of any me
morlnl or petition praying for the abolition of slave
rv or the slave trade, in any District, Territory or
State of the Union, and upon the presentation of any
ronllltion or other paper touching that snltject, the
reception of sach memorial, petition. resolution or pa
np'r. shall he considered as obeicted to, and the ques
tion of its receplion. shall he laid upon tihe table, with
out deInate or further action thereon.
Fillmore ngain voted with Adams, Giddings
and Slade, againsl the resolution.
On nother resolution, which is more com
prehciusive than any of the rest, we find him
still in the same company. And yet, this
resolution was offered nearly a year after tile
" Resolved, That all attempts on the part of C.n- ,
grroes, to anolish shlvery In the District of Collhmblia
or the Tirritnrieru. or- to. prolhit tile reinoval ifslnaes

ill vi~il t: , ot' ' enmalplronline of' the ast Illtution,
Iand d .I'stretive of thie t'tlndalmental principles on
whtich the UniTlon of theme Staten rests."
Fillmore voted nay, with Adams, Giddings
On the question of the recision of the 21st
rule, we find him, equally consistent with his
Mr. Adams of Massachusetts offered the
" Resolved. That the standing rule of thin Tilone.
in the following words, "No petition, memoriil resn
lution, or other paper. pr'nying the abolition of' sl.- I
ry in the District of Columbiia, or any State or Terri
Itory, or the slave trade between the states or Torrl
toreos of the United states, In which it now exists.
shlll be reeii-ed by tills Toinle, or entertained In
anty way whatever,' be, and the same is hereby re
Filhnitore again voted with Adams and Slade.
G iddings was not present.
Mr. Citles offered the following resolution:
' All petitions memorials. and papers touching the
a abolition of slavery, or the buying, selling or trans
ferring of slaves. In any state, district or territory of
the United states, shall, upon their presentation, he
laid on the table without being debated, printed,
I read or referred. and no fi-ther action whatever
shall ibe had thereon." ,rllla
Fillmore again voted witlhidanms, Giduhines
ariand Slade. gainst this resolution. The immn
diato question was on the motion of Mr.
Thompson of South Carolins, to lay on the
table, with a view to an amendment. The
amendment was the resolution proposed by
him, as already explained, against which Mr.
F. also voted.
After the expiration of his term in Con
gress, he wnas in the service of the State of
New York its Comptroller.
In October, 1847, a Whig Convention was
hold at!Albiny, and Mr. Fillmore was nomina
ted for the Vice Presidency.
The Convention adopted the Wilmot Pro
viseo. The address which it sanctioned, avows,
" uncompromising hostility to the extension of
slerery. .No more territory is our watchdord
unless it be free. We present you sound, go
men, who PErnsoNATs these principles-" This
enodation of Mr. Fillmore, shows that his
corrse on slavary had never wavered from
1888 to 184', rd period of nearly ten years.
No act, no word from him; not a line nor a
letter can be produced to the contrary. He
was not only the impersonation of abolition in
eviry vote he gave, but he kept pace with its
derntds tupon every new question.
DT)ring the canvass for the Presidency, his
opinions we' e, except in this particular, scarce
ly canvassed. IH, was selected for the purpose
of conciliating the sentiment of the State of
New York, of which he w.is supposed to be
the embodiment. It was declared that Gen.
Taylor hatd cnmmnitted himself to the princi
ple of the WVtmnn Proviso. It was contend
ed that in his AILoion letter, he had avowed
tnt " the lur'ciplhs of our government, as well

It was contended in New York, especially,
that Gen. Taylor's position on the subject of
the extension of slavery was thus identical;
and that although he was himself a slavehold
er, he was opposed to the extension of slave
ry to territory now free; and that, in what
ever territory we acquired, either as an indem
nity for, or resulting from our conquests in
Mexico, he, and Fillmore both, were not only
pledged to the principle of free soil, but that
they were both pledred by their well known
views on the veto power, not to arrest the legis
lation of Congress, on this or any other subject.
These views predominated in the Cabinet
of General Taylor, and the result was that
California was brought in as a free State, and
lost to the South. What possible hope can
the South have for Kansas, should the almost
impossibility occur, of Fillmore's election to
the Presidency ?
It is the conduct of the South, in holding
up and supporting such men as these, that has
cheered and encouraged the abolitionists, and
nurtured and increased their strength, until
they are now ready to overpower and crush us.

beauties and benefits of abolition fanaticism.
But for it the cost of the number of slaves in

training assisted by a pure and undefiled im

cold oI,, hungry little girl, gazing wistfully at
soime of hIh! ntakrss in at shop window. She
stopped, aind tkihg the little one by the hand

that bread might be better for the cold child
than cake, y.,t desrilng to gratify the shiver
