This is the foundation argu ment of all abolitionism 1 cannot admit it, be a use I*do not believe it correct. Slavery is the creature of Divine law. lie who or rigiiially gave man dominion over the beast of tlie field, of the sea, and the fowls of the air. afterwards made Japhct the mns tcr of C anaan and decreed Canaan to servi tude forever. The first decree is older in date, but not higher in authority than the j . last, and it is not for me to q uosiion tin , , wisdom of either. He knows best, and ‘ there can be no wisdom or right which ! does not submit to Ilis will. The slave then, is property. The title is j not made by human law. If I bad only human law for my title to right of my human slave, L would lose him before the sun went down. Slave property differs from all other property not in the rijLt, but in its O'. He who made the servant, prescribed rules and injunctions tor Ids humane treat ment, and for this the master will be respon sible, and surely for its abuse ho will be punished. 1 demand of government that wluch wc ha ct • —a property code for tin pro tection of alt property , and therefore of 1 S’accs. But, again, I will not now demand of Congress a slave code, because the laws, as the}’ now stand, outside of the Kansas hill, are sufficient for our protection. If the government is honestly administered, the citizen has ample protection under the rem edies now provided. On a former occasion, .’ explained this. It is sufficient at present b. state i he. general fact, that we have suf ficient legal remedies for R pr. -. m pur poses (outsideoj Kansas t vi .Y, ‘• which protection to Coin , - u.i i by theorgauicaet) But it uigy besaid i! we ha i sufficient laws already, why uow insist on the power and duty of Government to pro tect. Wc must insist upon it, first, because this right and duty have been denied, and they who deny are seeking to get control of the government. Their success is a triumph of the denial. Alroady lias this doctrine been denied by actual legislation in one case—-in the Kansas and Nebraska bill. Again experience shows that remedies which are sufficient for the present, become inefficient under t lie change of ever progres sing and aggressive events. Why'do yom legislatures meet annually ‘t Simply to pass such view laws and to remedy such defects in existing laws as time and experience con stantly show to be necessary. Thus in 1798, Congress enacted a fugitive Slave law, to carry out a plain constitutional pro vision. For that day, and for years after that day, that act was sufficient-—But the over-growing madness of anti-slavery fanat icism, and the interference ot anti-slavery legislatures, rendered utterly nugatory the remedies provided by the act of 1798. Hence, it became just as much a necessity, and just as muCh'a duty, to pass anew and more efficient law as it was to pass theorig nal act. What would now have been our condition had our fathers agreed to be satis fied for ever with the law of 1798, and re leased Congress from its duty of further protection ? So, though the legal remedies arc now sufficient, how soon may not the perverse ness of the human will, the ingenuity of as piring demagogues, the invasions of a mad anti-slavery, world-wide sentiment, and the positive intervention of unfriendly territo rial legislatures and people, render present remedies utterly nugatory ? We must in sist that government, every department in its appropriate sphere, shall keep our reme dies efficient for all time and against all en emies, wherever the authority of the gov ernment extends. ’C‘ 1 have given reasons enough t show the correctness ot tile great leading thought to he insisted on a- the true solution of the question iii this canvass. The next inquiry is, for whom shall we vote in order most effectually to secure the triumph of this principle ? To secure this triumph and make ii effectual, we must have a constant and honest eye to two tilings: First Wo must endorse the principle by ! our vote. •, eoudly.

True, ihe says < ‘otigress shall not prohibit slavery. Rut he says the Territorial Legislature, a provisional arm of the Federal Government, may prohibit slavery in two ways—by lion actiim and unfriendly legislation. 1 have explained his non-action theory and the pre mise on which it is based. I deny the cor rectness both of the premise and the eon elusion. Unfriendly legislation is not only |to deny the duty of protection , and the light to refuse such additional remedies as time and circumstances may show to be ne cessary, but ma'y also interfere with and ren der nugatory cot'stiiu/ remedies, lie claims the power under the Kansas bill. It is claimed that the South has agreed to the non-intervention and denial of protection clauses and doctrines as contained in that bill. Here, my brothers of the Constitu tional Democracy, is the light for you to make, It is not for me. All the world knows ne never agreed to that. No, thanks to the sweet recollections which struggles for truth always fix in the mind, ire were no parties to that agreement, nor partners in its spoil. Wc cannot, therefore, support Mr. Doug las. The difference between us is one of principle. It is radical, fundamental, and 1 fear incurable*—certainly go, unless he shall change. As I intend this day to speak can didly, and do full justice to even an enemy, I will add that outside of this question, 1 see much in Sir. Douglas to admire. On other questions, and on many occasions, he lias been a bold and fearless defender of our rights. He certainly lights the Republican ; ~-ty most manfully, and if there is a man north of Mason & Dixon’s line, whom?above all others, I could wish to be, not almost but altogether, such as we are, that man is Stephen A. Douglas. But on this question 1 have always differed with him widely, and must continue to differ. But 1 will do him the further justice to say 1 never mistook him Ilis friends South have ruined him by denying, in 185(i, that he held these opinions. He was too honest to affirm their denials, and the truth is now manifest. The musses of the southern Democracy have been deceived, and for that deception they curse Mr. Douglas. The curse should boon those who deceived them, rather than on Mr. Douglas. The issue is, thus, narrowed down to Mr. Bell and Mr. Rrcekctiridgc. With a per fect willingness on my part to support the election of whichever of these two, would most effectually secure the principle enun ciated, and restore peace to the country, 1 have examined this question, and have ar rived at a conclusion to which, I think, un prejudiced investigation will bring every southern man. In no event, will I make voluntary war on Mr. Brcckcnridgo, but 1 am fully convinced that the policy and the safest patriotism, require us to support Mr. Bell. I will proceed to give my reasons, and beg you, fellow-citizens, to leave party and prejudice behind while you listen to mo. 1 admit here, that the how platform on which Mr. Brocken ridge stands, is, on this subject, sound. Ilis re.cord is not sound.— This Gov. Johnson proved last night, and could have proved much more conclusively than lie did. But, for myself, if Mr. Brcck enridgp gets on the platform and thus re cants his errors, 1 will admit him as sound on the platform. No issue with me here. Mr. Bell’s platform duos not define this question. His platform is the Constitution, the Union and the Laws. To know liow he interprets the Constitution, and what, laws he will cnForee, wo, mu: * go to his record.— If his record fails, then lie and his platform must fail. If his record is sound, it gives meaning to his platform and strength to him. To this record lie refers us in his letter of acceptance, and to the record 1< t us go. My first proposition, and which I shall establish without a doubt, is, that John Bell is as found as the platform oil which Mr. Brecki nridge is nominated. This platform contains three distinct pro positions : 1. ‘I Congress lias no power to abolish slavery in the Territories. •> That the Territorial Legislature hasuo such power. li That on the contrary, it is the duty of lie Government to protect property (slavery j .. i, vie rarer u rcr-ary. , i!i oiind propositions, mid t; . io. ri ■ Jo: i o <T and ’ ‘ \ Jam , 1 J l , , f \.. ii rk ‘fierid the following a? an utucudmeat to the Compromise laces nr*’- in the t*i list**: “Neither slavery nur involuntary servi hide, Otherwise than by conviction far crime, , i shall ever tie allowed in either of said Terri tori- -of Utah and New Merino.” ‘1 Ilis is the Wtlinot I'roviso John IMI • rut*si no, and lhn eudon-ed under <wth,th< In t iiroinsitiott of tin platform On tin same day, Mr Berrien ibalgrrmi man |roiu Gmrgt*, Ofl< r< and the fullowin ■tni iidnn nt . •’ But ini Uw shall la: p*e<d ini*ffi ring itilh Ibe pi lutry disposal of tin suit, llof * ’ ü <a prohibiting ifmvi slavery Tin- w* ayiomt B-fUailer y.irer.-lynty John |b U *ot*s| f>, and <<* m ssstsd prupoaHitat of tli* |4**tfnrut i i*t, th< t7th <4 *<* ***"’ D” . 1 Mr. Pratt, of Maryland, and Mr. Davis, of Mississippi, agreed upon, and Mr. Davis of fered the following amendment to the same hill: “ Provided, that nothing herein contained shall he construed so as to prevent said Ter ritorial Legislature from passing such laws as may be neeissary for the protection of the rights of property 4 of /‘very kind, which may have been, or may be hereafter, con formably to the Constitution mid laws of the United States, held in, or introduced into, said Territory.” Mr. Davis also prefaced this proviso with some remarks, declaring his object to bo to assert the duty of the Goverumont to pro tect slavery. On this proviso Mr. Bell voted yet, thus asserting, under oath, the duty of protec tion, when necessary, in the very language of the platform. For Mr. Davis’ proviso, see Congressional tilohu, vol. 21, part 2, page 1071. For all the votes, see same book, page 1 Dl l. Therefore, to an actual demonstration, Mr. Bell is certainly as sound as the Brecken ridge platform, My next proposition is, that Mr- Bell is sounder than this platform. Now to the proof. This platform, of course, says nothing about slavery as a political, moral, or social good or evil; nor does that platform assort any good in slavery to the couwtry, or as contributing to its prosperity. But on the (ith day of July, 1850, in his place in the Senate,. Mr. Bell made a speech, in which, after assorting the right to pro tection, to bo constitutional and “ unques tionable, ’ he proceeds to give his views on slavery itself. A better argument lias never been made in defence of slavery, lie proves it right by the laws of nature and ot God, and a political, moral, social, and religious good ! 1 beg every man in the South to get. away from demagogues aud party —sit down with a pure and honest heart, and read that speech before lie votes against Mr. Bell, or stultifies himself by calling him unsound. Nothing like it can be found in all the tile of Johu 0. Breckcnridge. Thus, Mr. Bell is sounder than the plat form, and sounder than Mr. Brockcuridgi and his platform together. Now, fellow-citizens, I will way here, in general terms, without taking up your time to read so much, that there is nothing in all Mr. Bull’s record inconsistent with this.— 1 care not how designing editors and deina gogues disgrace them.-ulves with garbling falsehoods and mean perversions to the con trary, this is true, and there lives not in all the South a purer, sounder, bettor statesman for the South and the Union, than John Bell. But you will gay how is it that Mr. Bell with such a record has been declared to be unsound so often at the South. The grounds of this charge have been two —his votes against the Kansas hill and the LcCompton Constitution; and also the general fact that everybody not a Democrat, is habitually de nounced as unsound by the small men of that party, lo 18:Ti, they burnt me in effi gy as an ally of the Black Republicans, an 1 last night they hung Gov. Johnson for the same reason I suppose. To the Governor 1 send greeting, with the hope that, four years lienee he may stand as fully vindica ted as 1 do to-day. But why should our Hreckenridgo friends Mr. Bell for voting against the Kansas hill ‘ lie did honestly believe and fully declare that that bill would be evil arid only evil to the South and the Union. Do you not. all admit it? When you seced ed at Charleston, you put on record lire reasons lur that secession, and in looking over your reasons I find many epithets ap plied to the Kansas bill and (lie Cincinnati platform,such as “cheat,” “swindle,” “hum hug,” and a “deceit upon the Sou!h.” On this hill, then, why condemn Mr. Bell? The only difference 1 can see between you and Mr. Bell on this point is, that it required six years of hitter experience and earnest warnings to teach you whit .Mr. Lull aw from the beginning! Then as to the Leeompton issue. Mr, Bell did not vote against this hill, because i! contained slavery, lie honestly believed (t w. s framin'’ nt. Whether so or not, he j hole ■■■j believed so, and so believing, was i,., j, i.ey to voo against it? Weought ■. .( in to Im corrupt, cv< n to ,i u- Every man wlm j ,r ... u for ibis vote, only ini j, s /tisoien r<Habitity , doubt f-- without j i intending it However we mi lit differ I | with Mr. Bell as lo tie fact of 1. m I yet j llio vote itself proven nothin ‘ that J \| r |p 11 ua.hoii'-t, ye*, hum -t enough Ii; ,do right against his own prejudice lad mi: Imt f< w jwliti'iatis will uo ler-taml how i f|,i is | m* ilit* ■!

Mr. Bell has always regarded our Constitutional rights as unquestionable, j I hey were fixed, and above the power of Government to destrov Therefore, he has opposed agitation as unnecessary and un wise. Foolish agitation always stirs up and invites positive aggression. When issues and votes have been forced by the thought less, Mr. Bell has voted right, but he has done so, deprecating the evil to the country 1 j ot gratuitous agitation. If all our public men had taken John Bell for a model, tin j rights of the South and the perpetuity ol the Union would tq-day bo unquestionable i and unquestioned. ‘fin l election of Mr Bell will give our principles a peaceful, quiet triumph, arid disband the Republican party. The election o! Mr. lircrkcnridgc will liierease the strif , and tend to build up the Republican ! 1 arty. Again, on the ground where my Breeken- j ridge friends now stand, and claim so much credit for vamdini, John Bell lias been standing for years. Yes, he and we were standing there when you were excited, mad, carried away in thoughtless adoration ol’ this “cheat” and “swindle,” us you now term the Kansas hill; and you abused us, called us traitors and allies of abolitionism You drove him from his seat in the Senate I'or his very fidelity. You drove the gullunt and noble Crittenden from his seat for the same reason, and have placed Mr. Broeken ridgo in the place. In this hour of our vindication, must we abandon Mr. Bell? Honor and a high sense of justice should force you to him. Nothing Imt ingratitude and the loss of self respect, can drive it* from him. We have learned howto forgive enemies, but we have never learned Imw to abnmbui friends. Again, Mr. Bi ll was in the field first The convention was called while you were still iii tin- Nutim id Democracy with your “sound forty four faithful !” lie was nom inated while you were tryimj to yet back af ter once going out You ought not to have nominated another, and thus divide those who agree.
