His Abolitionism Proved—HE IS IK" FAVOR CF NEGRO EQUALITY. The doe'rine of negro equality lies at the foundation of all Abolitionism ; for when Uiat doctrine is fully acknowledged and cani-d out and the negro is put upon an equality with the white man, of course slaveiv would be abolish ed—there would he no slaves—all would be placed upon an equality. The leason the Re j publican* insist so strenuous! v upon that doc trine is because it is sine to drive to abolition . everywhere ; and no man insist more strenuous ly upon it Mr. Lincoln, lot" in hiis celebra ; ted Chicago speech he uses the following extra ' ordinary language ; "I should like to know if, taking this old Declaration of Independence, which declares 'hat all -n*n are equal upon principle, and ma king EXCEPTIONS to it, WHERE WILL ITSBOP ] IF ONE MAN SAYS rr DOES NOi MEAN A NEGRO, why not another say it does mean some other man ?"—(SeeiLin coln and Diuglas' Debates, p. 22— Lincoln's edition.) Here is a pointed decf ara'ion made [ )V Mr. Lincoln that HE BELIEVES in the doclrine of NEGRO t EQUALITY without qualifird l lion. And to show his vim in expressing his fim ; belief in the doc line, he adds: J --H that declaiation is not the trulh, let us ! gel the statute book AND TEA aIT OUT 1 If it is j oot true, let us TE\R IT OUT! [Cries of no, no!] L-t us stick to it then ; lef ( ,s s'aod firmly bv it."—(Debate#, page 23, Lincoln's edit On.) A< Galesnurg he affirms the dec.'ara 1 ions in Useff-'tv v world from the date ot 'he Decla at ion of Inde pendence up to within three years ago, mav oe searched in vain for a single affirma'iou FROM j ONE SINGLE MAN. [THAT THE NEGRO WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE DECLA RATION OF INDEPESDENt E.—(See De oales, Lincoln's 178.) VVmcn simply means that wtien our fathers •. vv ho were most ot them slaveholders, declared; THEM-•:LVK. free, thev were declaring the NE- • GROES FREE ALSO ! Again Mr. Lincoln not only declares that the Declaration of Independence includes the negro as created equal, but he adds that they aie cie- . ated iiee and equal, in (he following codicil his benediction at Chicago : "My Iriends, I could not without launching oil upon some new topic, which would detain vou too long, con'inue to-night. I thank you for tins mist ex'ensive audience you have . ir i uhed me to-night. I leave you, hoping that the lamp of Itbert v vvill bui n in your bosoms un til there shall be no longer a doubt 1 hat all men are created FREE AND EQUAL ' —(See Lincoln's edition of Debate*, page 2i.) Thus interpolating the Declaration of Inde- pendence, in older lo carry oui his Abolition Joel rines. Tiiat Mr. Lincoln desires to reduce thi< doc fnoe to piaclice is proved by turning: to the Illinois Journal of September Mi, Ibbti, where in we we find him reported as declaring at a banquet at Chicago: I'll at central idea, in our political opinion, at tiie beginning was, and until recently con tinued to be, the EQUALITY OF MEN. And al though it was submitted patiently, lo whatever inequality there seemed to be as a matter of ne cessity, its constant working has been a steady progress towards the PRACTICAL EQUALITY OF ALL MEN. "Let past differences as nothing be ; and wilh steady eye on the real issues, let us inaugurate ihe good old centi al ideas ol the Republic.— We can do it. The human heart is with us; (iod is with us. We shall again be able not to declare that all the States, as Slate?, are equal, nor vet that ail her i iiiz- ns as citizens aie e qual, but renew the broader, better declaration, including both senses and nun li more, that all men are cu-ated equal." When pushed by Judge Douglas as to his meaning when he declared that "it (slavery) should be placed wheie the public mind sh iuld rest in the belief that it was in the course of ultimate extinction," he dei lares that "I did not even say that I desired that sla very should be put in course of ultimate ex tinction. IDO SAY SO NOW, however, so there need be no longer any difficulty about that. It may be written down iti the great speech." Webster savs the word extinction means "lo putou'," or "iliejuct of nutting out, 4 ' "destruc tion," or, in other words, "ABOLISH." At Charleston, JII., Mr. Lincoln says : "An elderly gentleman called upon me to know whether I was really in favor of a PLR FECI equality between the negroea and the white people."—(Debates, p 136.) And then he goes on to say hat he is not, noi ever has been in favor of the perfect social anc political equality ol the whites and blacks. — But truly adds : "I have never seen, to my knowledge, a man BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5,1860. | woman, or child, who was in favor of produ nog a PERFECT equality, social and politics ( between negroes and white men." Debates. page, 136.) Not even Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Phillip*, Gen it Smith. Dr. Cbeever, or even Greeley or • Giddings, are in iavor of producing a perfect ; equality, "socially and politically,"among the e whites and blacks." But only a political e - quality. Not a perfect social equality. -Mr. Lincoln is a lawyer, and knows verv well how to befog obnoxious sentiments bv a . connected verbiage. Why did he not sav that , he was not in favor ufa political equality otlhe white* and blacks instead ol coupling it with a j ''social" equality, and qualifying it with the word pel feet. A perfect social and jwlitiral equality dot-s not exist upon earth even among unite men, lor in the sea!.* ol morals and in<el . lert one is higher or lower than another, as t lie case may be. At Alton, Mr. Lincoln sa iii : •'I think the authors of that notable instru ment intended to include all men, out thev did nut mean to declare all men eqal in nil respects. (Mr. Lincoln s italics.) 1 hey did not mein to say ail men are equal in size, color, intellect, moral development or social capacity. They defined with tolerable distinctness in what they did consider all men created equal—equal in certain in alienable rights, among which is lile, LI bc,R fY, and the pursuit ol happiness. In ths speech M . Lincoln gave his tiue sen timent*, and it will be seen that the political equality of the negro and white man is cate i tul y and designedly left out. But his inaiien- i able r ght to lioerty he never forgets. In a speech Mr. Lincoln ri.a )e at Peoria, October 16th, 1854, he explains himself as <oI- j low* : "'A hat Ido say is, that no man is good e- | nough to govern another man, without the oih- I i*i s ( ().VSE ' I. J say this is the leading prin- • ciple, the SHEET ANCHOR OF AMERICAN REPUBLICANISM. Our declaration of Inde pendence savs : "We hold these truths to he self-evident That all men ait* CREATED EQUAL ; that th v are endowed by their creator vviih certain i inalienable rights, that among these are life.!, I\ , and the pursuit of happiness. Tnat j to Set ure these rights, governments aie i;ij i tuled among men, deriving their just powers from the consent ol the governed." '•I have quoted so much at this time merely i 1 ishow 'bai, according to onr ancient laith, the j ist powers ol governments arederived from the consent of the governed. Now, the reh'ion of nm.lani- - ihe slave without his consent, but he governs ; turn bv a set of mles altogether dilT'eient from j those which he prescribes for himself. AL- i LOW ALL the governed an EQUAL VOICE J tn the Government ; and that, ami that only is I ' selP-oovernment." (Howell's Liie ol Lincoln, j I P 279., | Here the doctrine is clearly 'aught, I bat, in! order to have self-government, which Mr. Lin i coin savs he a "thousand times"' favored, we j : must allow ail tin* governed an equal voice in I the o-overnment, (black a* well as while.) i ins is lrulv the political equality of all men, and , "Honest Abe" further adds that '"his is the lea- ' ding principle, the sheet anchor of American j i Republicanism" and there is no use tor (he Re- | publicans of C~*nlial or Southern Illinois to fur ther dispute it. Mr. Lincoln, in ills Springfield speech ol June 17th, 1858. when tie was nominated for ;be United States Senate, wfiich was ine first! j i <gg laid, that fie was ever afterwards in the ef- j to t ofcovenng up or explaining away, in Ins d 'bate with Judge Douglas, complains that the • Supreme Court of the United Stales decided a> j follows in relation tolhat darling pet ol hi-, the ' i negro: •'That no negro slave imported as such tiom ; Africa, and no descendant ot such siave, can ever be a citizen of any Slate in the sense of that term, as used in the Constitution of the United States. This point is made," says Lm- Cviln, "in order to deprive the negro, in every possible event oI th<* benefit o! that provision ol the United Slates constitution which declares that "The citizens of each State shall be enti tled to at! privileges and immunities of citizens in the several States." This decision of the Court is complained ol by Mr. Lincoln because it has "deprived the ne gro," who has become a citizen ol Massachu selts, and is entitled to hoid office, sit in juries, and vote there, wiwn he emigrates to Illinois or Kentucky, deprives him of of "all the privi leges and immunities of citizen" oflll-nois or Kentucky ; or, in other words, he complains that the Court has thrown it out of the power ol the negro slave, o; a descendant at one vvuo has become a citizen Massachusetts, and by virtue ot citizenship is politically equal to a while nan in Illinois or Kentucky, to wit : the right to hold office, to sit on juries, to mar ry. to vote at elections, and, indeed, every other political right that the white man has, and yet ! the Republicans say he is not lor negro equality. — Patriot and Union. ss s S SSSS SS S i S From the Selinsgrove Times.

The shameless denials oi the Black Republi- j can pasty, when charged with fueling a sympa thy with old John Brown, and with approving j the atrocious acts he perpetrated in Vi'ginia, i are striking instances of the audacity to wuicb desperate men may be driven.

We present a few gems culled from a speech of John A. Andrews, the Black Repuplican | candidate for Gjvernorol Massachusetts, a State i in which the cauldron of Abolitionism and j treason is always kept boiling. On the 19th of November, 1809, in the Fremont Temple, i m Boston, John .A Andrews said : "1 pause not to consider, because tt is wholly j outside ol the duty t the lUoilght ol tills dsseui- ■ bly to-night, whether the enterprise ot John j Brown and Ins associates in Virginia was wise or loulish, right or wrong. I know only tuat i whether the enterprise ilselt was the one or j the other, John Biowu himself was right." j Again, says Mr. Andrews : '•There is an irrepressible conflict betweeu j freedom and slavery, as old and as manorial as j the llrepressive conflict between tight and j wrong. They [Brown and his companions] I are among the martyrs ot that conflict." Mr. Andrews thus concluded Iris speech : We are to-night in the presence ot a jgreat j and an awful sorrow, wtiicii has fallen like a ■ pall upon many families whose hearts lad, whose atlectious aie lacerated, anil whose i hopes are ciushed—[no sympathy lor the wives and children ot the murdered men ol Harper's J Ferry]—all ol hope lelt on the earth destroyed . bv an event which, under the Provuieuce ot Gcd, I pray will be oveiruled toi that good j which was contemplultd and intended by John Brown himself " ; It (he Black Republican party, disapprove j of ihejolin Brown raid, why do ttiey make : the peculiar advocates and champions ct it their j candidates for office, their ctnet orators and their most trusted leaders? liie answer i plain.
