Not. 18. wlamfJm Quarto. Why the Word Slave is not Used In the United States Constitution. Mr. Millson, of Virginia, in the course of a speech in Congress on the 21st of January last, said: I have heard it said by members of the Re publican party that the framers of the Consti tution refused to use any terms that would indicate a recognition of the right of proper ty in man ; that they excluded the word Slave or Slavery, from the Constitution, because of their relutance to disclose the fact there was any such personal relation Acknowledged or established by the laws of any of our States. Sir, such an argument does great injustice to the framers of the Constitution. They were moved by no such sentimentalism. It is a re proach to them, to say that they were so in tensely hypocritical that they were not asham ed to do what they were ashamed to talk about. It is an aspersion upon them to sup pose that they were so intensely hypocritical as to consent to the continuance of the Slave trade for twenty years, with all its attendant horrors and atrocities, and yet, like timid maidens, to shrink from tho words “ Slave,” and “ Slavery,” as recognizing property i«a human being9. No, sir, they had strongor and better reasons for the adoption of the lan guage they put in the Constitution. They knew—and the gentleman from Ohio, (Mr. Corwin,) Las relieved me from much of the discussion by the able and lucid manner in which he has illustrated this subject to-day— they knew the word Slave, or Slavery, was a word of vague and indefinite signification, having a variety of meanings. Had they used tho word Slave, it would have led to infinite cavil and dispute as to the precise meaning intended. Some Abolition ists might have argued that it did not apply to Africans held to servitude under the laws of Virginia and Maryland ; that a negro sorvant escaping from his master, was not such a Slave as the Constitution required to be delivered up, because the master had not the power of life and death over him, as under the Roman law, which authorized the master to take tho life of his Slave. They might have argued, moreover, that the word Slavery, in the Con stitution, was one, and to be taken in one •ense alone, that is, that two different inter pretations could not be given to it; and, there fore, if the laws of domestic servitude in South Carolina differed from those in Virginia, the word Slavery might bo applied to one or the other of them, but it could not be applied to both, because you oould not give different in terpretations to the same word. The framers of the Constitution, then, sir, wisely substi tuted a description for a word. They said persons held to service or labor under the laws of any State.” It embraced every kind of servitude. It comprehends the servants of Virginia, of North Carolina, of South Caroli na, of Georgia, and of all tho States. It ex cluded all cavil and all doubt. But they were guilty of no such miserable hypocrisy as that sometimes attributed to them—that they wero uuwilling to introduce into the Constitution any phrase which might imply that there could bo property in mau. To insist that they are persons, as well as property, is to take the highest position on which the South can rest her claims. To say that they are property, and nothing but prop erty, is not true in any sense of the word.— It is not true in physics; it is not true in mor als ; it is not true in religion ; it is not true in politics. A slave is a mpn. He is a respon sible man ; responsible to our laws, responsi ble to God. He is a person ; a person held to service ; and it is because he is a person that the position of the South before this Congress and in the Constitution is impregnable. I nay it is beoause he is a person that gentlemon of the Republican party are forbidden to pass a law prohibiting his emigration into the Ter ritories. As mero property you might set up a plausible claim to exclude bitn. Ay, as mere property there would be a color of argu ment in favor of his exclusion ; but as a per son, a person held to service, a man holding a personal relation to another, a member of the household, a part of the family, you have no more right to exclude him from ttie privilego of going into the Territories with his master than you have to exclude a wife from going in to the Territories with her husband. The wife, too, by law, owes serviee and labor to the husband. The relation existing between husband and wife is the relation established by the laws of the Stales ; and the gentleman from Ohio cannot say that these are laws which are looal, and do not extend beyond the limits of the States where they were enacted ; beoause the same argument would force him to the conclusion that it is within the power of Congress to exclude from a Territory a wife bound to her husband under the laws of any State, and that a husband cannot carry a wife occupying that relation with him into the Territories, because the law under which that relation was established or rceognized does not extend beyond the territory of the Stale in which it was snaoted. And permit me, sir, to sty that, If they were property, and nothing but properly, they would not be represented in Congrees; for there ie no dteoriptlon of property represent ed ia Congress as property—neither lande, nor money, nor stocks, nor any other kind of prop erty. If they were property, and nothing but propertr, then we deprive ourselves or the right of representation of three-fifths of their whqle number, exoept upon the eondition that an equal representation be given to property of an equal tains ia tha ether States of the Union.
