Ttarcy eat ttlavsry.
IVtlun Democracy, in bop of n eartb
ly immortality, Liu token to iu boom tbnt
, rile repealer of sacred compact, the Kan
let-Nebraska bill.
In point of fact tbo repeal of iho Mis
souri Restriction waaa pro-lavr act
li a much at any slaveholder can ask of llio
Government a permit to uso the only otu
ar power known to tba alava system, viz:
the individual power of tba master lo hold
men in bondage. 13y tbia power slavery ex
itta in Kansas. Yet Jot. Lane upon the
itump declare that if a slaveholder were to
take bia negro- to Kantaa lliry would be
free under tbe Connitution, in the absence
of positive enactment Then he nut be
lieve that tbe Constitution i ojiputed to la
ter y; consequently pro alavery lawa in tbe
.Terri tone mutt bo unconstitutional. But,
no 1 you can't "consequence" the Gen. to
eatily. He believes that turritorial rcgula
tiona for tbe protection of alavery are per
fecily right and constitutional, and therein
lie exhibits a moil beautiful consistency of
pro-slavery and anti-slavery opinion. He
would no doubt avoid tuch great and tub-
lime blunder by a little attention to tbo vig
orous thought and opinion of a greater, in
democracy, than himself, I ho hitcheta of
whote hoc ho it tcarcely worthy to loote.
I commend him to tho tender mercie of
ex-Senator Benton, and I beliere tbe groat
man will look down upon him with consid
arable commiseration.
The Gen. in hit ipecchet appcalt to the
Spirita of '70, and plead thut : Did our
father not fight that they might be free 1
Did they not fight, bleed, end die, all, to
nourish that gloriou tree of Liberty now
towering amongst ut I and w ere they not
capable of governing themselves I and arc
we not competent to chooso for ourselves
what kind of institution we tthall liavo?
And shall not the people regulnto their own
domestic affair I A ro not tho people of 'lie
Territories a competent as they were be
fore they left tho States t They are certain
ly. Nobody will deny that.
, vv hat a pretty stop could have been put
to tuch loose and pointless political senti
mentality by asking one or two plain and
aimplo questions. Suppose n poor foreign
er (and lam told the Gen. loves a rich brogue
now) to hold the following conversation with
tho Gen., who, I havo no doubt, would be
very willing to initiate all foreigners into the
delectable tnystorics of Squatter Sover
eignty. . Foreigner Who makes your law in this
Territory f -
Gen. Lane (with exultation) V e, the
free peoplo of tho Territory.
, For. Arc your laws subject to any revis
ion except by the people ?
Oen. (hesitatingly) W-e-1-1, y-e-s :
Congress hat a veto power, but don't use it.
For Who elect your Territorial oflicev-.?
Oen. Well, to tell you about that. They
are appointed by the President.
Jor. How ubout their pay, fcc. ? Tell
us nil it.
Oen. Weill Congress pays the oiHcers
the expmises of the Legislature, and for the
public printing, and also gives us an organic
For. Docs Congress do the same for
otber Territories, and is this the custom f "
XT .a .
ven. ies, Mougu their organic a..:
may differ somewhat. , ' ,
For. You want a change, I suppose
you want a State.
Gen. Look here I you sec now that I go
with Messrs. Cass and Douglas in favor of
Squatter Sovereignty, and for Liberty, yes,
for the largest liberty to every body, wheth
or in the Territory or not, and for the peoplo
of the territory to regulate their own do
mestio affairs.
For. Gen., you say the Legislature is
elected by the peoplo, and Congress don't
use iu veto power J how then, don't you
regulate your domestic affairs I
Oen. Partly; but there is in our organ
ic act a "Wilmot Proviso," preventing the
people from holding slaves. I want to
leave that vexing question to the people,
where it belong. .
Fory t appear that that vexing
question i settled rightly now. The peo
ple in righteousness could only settle it as it
it already settled, and the agitation would
only eosttime and trouble, and might end
ia slavery a most horrible curse, i .
Gen. Oh 1 I am a much opposed to
alavery as any body, bat what I argue is a
great democratic principle; the opposite of
it ia in violation of the Constitution. Con
gress has no right to legislate for Territories.
- It it not to be expected that the poor for
eigner, though he had tbe best of the argu
ment, was a lawyer, for at the large word
"Constitution" he became silent, and was uo
doubt confounded. If he had taken time to
consider that the Gen. perpetrated no argu
ment, but made a sweeping assertion, prob
ably be would have answered him. But
to it ia.
Mr. Bush reiterates the same groundleu
assertion, . and continue with this argu
ment: "The right of Congress to keep Sla- ILTUrisf k letMucd by oanuuoa endurance
very out of tho Territorial carriel with U'JnendbopaMwa.urby oomroon ojoyra.ut.
the right to legislate Slavery into the Ter
ritoriet; consequently he denies any right
at all. Now, the redoubtable editor be
liovtt in kgi.liiting Slavery iuto Territories
by an abnegation of power, but he dou't be
lieve In prohibiting Slavory by a direct exer
cise of that power.
For thn benefit of the opposition and iho
eople Iihall quote the opinions and argu
ment of the Hon. Tlio. II. Bentoti. from
hi speech in Congress on the Nebraska
Bill :
" A lid what I all liii hotch-potch Air t hi lo

the Senate in 1848, aud was received as nonsense,
a the i-eneuce of nonsense a the quintessence
of nonsense aa the five time diatilled etaenc of
political nons usieality. Why, Sir, th. Territory

what they please with it permit it to be settled of
not, aa they please ; eut It up by linee, aa they
please sell it or giro it away, a they plea ;
ehaao while people from it, a thev please.
"After til it farrago thi olla podrida come a
little stump speech, injected in the bslly of the bill,
and which must usve s prodigious ettcct when re
cited iu the prairies, and out towards th frontier,
tnd up toward th head of the creeks. I will
read it, nd I bop. without fatiguing the Howe, for
it la uoin brief and beaulilul, and run thus: 'it
'being the true Intent aud meaning of this act not
'to legislate Slavery into any Stale or Territory, nor
to exclude it therefrom : but to leave the people
'thereof jierfectly frre lo form and regulate their
'domestic institutions m.their own way, subject on
ly to the Constitution of the United Slates.' This
is tho speech, and a pretty little thing iticlf, and
very proper to be spoken from a stump in the prai
rie. It has intent, and a truo intent, which is nei
ther to legislate Slavery iulo or out of any State or
l emtory. men why legislate at ill 1 vthyall
tin disturbance if no eftect is produced, and things
to remaiu just a they were! Let well enough
alone, was the old doctrine ; to make well enough
still better, is the doctrine of progress; and that in
spite of the Italian epitaph, which says: 'I was
well, and would be better; took physic, and here
I am.' But the Start must be greatly delighted
at the polltft'iecs and forbearance of this bill. It
puts States snd Terrilori-.-e upon precise equality
with respect to the power of Congress over them.
Congress does not mean to put Slavery in or out of
any Slate or Territory. To all that polite abnega
tion I have tossy that, in respect to the States, it
is the supererogation of modesty snd humility, as
Congress happened to have no power to putSlavery
in them or out of them, and in respect to the Ter
ritories, it is aa abdication of a CONSTITU
TIONAL POWER AND DUTY i it beiug the
right of Cougriss to kgisluto upon Slavery in the
1 crritoneK, and its dutv to do wi when there is oc-
casiou for it as in lib? aud 18W0."
As to the assertion of Gen. Lane that
slaves in Kansas are free under tho Consti
tution, or can bo freed by that instrument,
i't u.s hear Mr. lieiiton aL'uin. He says:
"Sir, the Constitution was not made lor Terri
tories, but lorbtatis. lis provisions are all applica
ble to Stales, and camml be put in operation in
Ti-rritniies. Tiny tsjnuul vole fur President or
Vice IVesi ipnl, or inemiien nf Congress, nor elect
tlicir own olli. ers. or prescribe the the qualifications
of vote is, or administer their own laws by their
own julges,slieriiVs, and attorneys: and the clause
exlenoiiig the Constitution to them is a cheat and
an illusion, and a trick to smuggle Sluvery into the
1 err, lories. Nor is it intended that they shall have
any U g slativo right under the Coiiniituliou, even
in relution to Slavery. They may admit it hecuure
it is to be there by the Constitution ; they cannot
exclude it, because the Constitution puts it there.
That is the argument ( and it is a juggle worthy of
the ti'icK of one e'g under three hnis ut the sumo
time and under neither at any time. Besides, the
Constitution is an organic, not an administrative
act. It ie a code of principles, not of laws. Not
a clause in it can be executed except by virtue of
a law made under it not even the clause for re
covering fugitive slaves." '
The same arguments which induced Mr.
Benton to oppose the Kansas Bill should in
duce lovers of Freedom and free institutions
to demand its repeal. The pro-slavery dem
ocrats of Oregon, not contented with the
opening of Kansas and Nebraska to that
direst of curses, Slavery, resolved Congress
in regard to the anti-republican nature of
the Wiltnot Proviso, and the right of tbe
people to settle that matter themselves.
I would advise the Hon. gentleman, who
introduced those excessively democratic res
olutions, in the language of Tom Benton,
that those resolutions are a prelude to a
i ci .u f Tl
"trick to smuggle Slavery into the Tem-K

of that delightful book, "Rome in the Nineteenth
Century,'' has lately been converted to tb. Roman
Church a consequence, we infer, of th. mother's

The teal of th. new convert wa recently exhib

in tbe aubterranean chapel beneath tbe Church of
Sc Peter's in Rome, in th. presence of th. alleged
