It then goes ou to congratulate tho demooracy upon the prospect of poaee with Mexico, taking an enlightened view of our post and present relations with that republic. It then goes on to ?6l ??? ?? It appears to bo conceded upon all bands, that whenever peace may take place, one of its conditions Is necessarily to be, ths oesslon of territory by Mexiao to the United States. Such territory, whatever its extent may be. is now-freo from the pollution of slavery; and the questions whioh will arise by its soquisitlon will bs, whether the mere aot of onesion to the Ualtod States of Amerios, by the grace of Ood free and independent, changes it from a land of freemtn to a land of slavee ? And if not, whether such change should be made by any subsequent act of ths national legislature ? The subject of excluding slavery from territories of ths United Htates, where It does not now exist, has for er,vn>, t(m? nail ttirncrfil ths attention of the nsnnle of this country; and the present Legislature bos Instructed the Senators, and requested tho representatives o( this State in Congress, to procure, if possible, the insertion of a provision seourlog this obj?ct, in sny set which may be passed by CoDgresa.for the erection of a territorial government. The position of the republioans of this State was correctly defined atths reo. nt democratic convention,held atUtica, in pursuance of established usage, to scud thi'ty-six delegates to represent this State in a National convention for the nomination of democratic oandi dates ,for the offices of President and vloe-i*resIdent of the United States. Thees positions, were first: ?That the principle of the ordinance of 1787, by which the institution of slavery was excluded lrom all the unsettled territories then owned by the United States (whether derived from slave or free States) should be appllod to Oregon, and each portions cf Mexico as may bo ceded to the United States, whenever, la pursuance of the invariable usages of the federal government, territorial governments arc established for them by Congress; and second:?That sineible of the difficulty of maintaining the organisation of the republican party of the Union, as it has hitherto existed, it those who take different sides on this exciting question should iusist upon a declared conformity, to tneir respective opinions on the part of the oandidates fo r the Presidency, tho democracy of New York had never made this a test question, and felt called upon to apprise their Southern brethren who persisted in doing so, what would he the inevitable effect of euch action. | In the justness and liberality of these positions, it might well hove been believed true demoorats in all sec, tions of the Union could cordially oonour. And although the views of the Utioa convention, expressed with marked moderation and a commendable regard for the feelings of our southern brethren, have not received the publicity to whioh we supposed them entitled, on every principle of justice and lair dealing, they seeis to have attracted a considerable sbare of publio attention, and to have met with a recaption us unexpected to ua as it was undeserved. The demoorats of Alabama have einoe assembled in State oouvention for the purpose of sending delegates to the same national convention; they have adopted resolutions summarily denying the power of Congress, or the people t-f the territory, either hv direct legislation or through the nation of a territorial legislature, to prohibit the introduction of slaves into territories now fres. and affirming that such prohibition can only be made by a State constitution framed by tho people of the territory, prsparat ory to their admission into the Union as a State In the meantime they insist that thoso who ohsoss to do so, may rlg'-tfully settle the territory in question with a slave population. Toentorca these positiuus they pledge themselves to the oountry and to ouoh other under no political necos?ily whatever to support for the offloes or President or Vioe President any person who ehall not be openly and avowedly opposed to either of theee forms of excluding slavery Irora the territories of tho United States, which they denounce In tbeir resolutions as belug alike in violation of the constitution and of the just and equal rights ( the oitizsns of the sUve-hotding States. Th?y also instruct and bind the delegates they frjsct to the national convention to vote for no man, for either of those places, who will rot unequivocally avow himself to be so opposed. Tbs etrse positions have since beon re-atlirmed by tba democratic State oonventlon la Virginia, assembled to select delegate* to the national oonventlon And the proscribing decree ngainet ail who will not oome torwurd and subscribe the creed sought to be enforoed, is rcferrsd to with apparent enthus asm as the noble resolution of Alabama.'' And the democracy of Klorida, one of the youngest States in the Union, in selecting tbeir de)egvtes to the National Convention, bava, within a fow days, in a manner at least as exceptionable, assumed similar grounds, seeming determined that the dumooracy of New York should re-assert their principles, or forever herealter be foreolosod by their silenoe- No reasons have been offered by either convention to sustain the i positions thai assumed. And tho people of the North havp thus not even been afforded, so for as we havu observed, the satisfaction of knowing the grounds upon which his ostracism has been pronoune J Nay, I even the sensibility which we should cxpeot to have found awakened by the snpposei necessity for so abrupt a severance of ancient and honorable political lias, seems not to have been aroused In the least degree on the part of old political associates, who have found themselves forced to so harsh a termination of Intercourse. We shall leave them to judge, as they are abundantly able to do, what is the opproprlnte course for them to putsue. Kven now, wo are oontent that oar Southern mends shall stand fully justified, if we are unable to Dow the fairness ana oonsuvuuonsriiy w me coarse pursued or advocated by the democrats of thle State, iygsrd to the entire subject of slavery. Vitally impdrtant as Is the exclusion of slavery from territory row free, we do not desire It to be effected through the exercise of any doubtful power of the oustitu'lou The founder* ot the republic earnestly and actively desired to restrict the spread of slavery. We invite to cur shores the children of labor an 1 the votaries of liberty from every clime, by holding out to them the promise of equal participation in ths blessings of free institutions; we reoelve accession* to our territory of entire States, and consent to tbalr admission into our glorious Uaionquodcr the Impression thet the enlargement of our national boundary 1* hut another term for an extension cf the area of freedom. If this b? a (Ulusiun, as it if if the"* acquisition* be made the abode of slavery, good faith demend* that the delusion should be acknowledged We have acted upon the belief that the frawr* of the constitution made ample provision for the adoption of every meesure that might become necessary to seoure the true bapplcees of a I the people that should seek a shelter under tiio institutions to which our glorious revolution gave birth. Amongst the first end greatest of these, |s the securing to the white laborer a hem* and an hoaorable station In all the free territories that tho I ore.) Mats s may possess or acquire. To do this, we bulleve It indispensHblo that blaok slaves shall bo excladed theretrom ; and we ontertsin no doubt that Ibis object can be properly and constitutionally eff voted In the ciods we have Instructed our Senator# and requested our representatives to pursue We oan well conceive that honest wen may have doubted tho polioy of seeking theaccoaiplisnmentof th s object by attaching a proviso to a bill appropriating money for the purchase of territory, or by its insertion In a treaty by which such purchase waaeff cted. They might euppoee that in either of these modes the great object of ex'oading our territory would be embnrrsssed, whilst tho grcoter obj-ct ef extending freedom oculd be oiherwise secured. We know, too. that a cover wts thus furnished to the fslse-henrted men of the North, who are operated npou by federal patronage and a factious desire to prostrate the just influence of our stato, under whioh, witonut directly meriting the great question of freedom itself, they might shelter themselves by the pretence that tho one provision was an unnecessary abstraction. bios un# new territory might not be acquired, aod that the other was unattainable, because no treaty containing it oould secure ? ratification. We oan, therefore, well appreciate the conciliatory disposition whijh Indu ; cod the democrats assembled at Herkimer so far to modify their position on this sntj?ct ar simply to in sist upon a guaranty that th# territory of the l/nl'ed Slat's then free ahoiud remain (o until its Inhabitants formed ?

The iaventoce end advocates of this theory,therefore, though manifesting a condescension which would be ooramendable in a good cause, have net only felled to secure the fevor of our eoutbeni brethren, but have been unablo to protect themselves, any more than we have been nble. from political oetraolera. Slaveholders olalm a right independent of any aotion of Congress, or of the peoplo of the territories, to hold slaves In a free territory. They ooneeda that the people of the territory, in forming a constitution prior to their admission 01 a State, may prohibit slavery; hot deny their power to do eo otherwise. Tba reason for this reQned distinction as to the oonatitutional power of tho ismo people, baa not been assignee: and,though the effsot of the distinction in securing the propagation of ? slavery and its permanent establishment, is obvious, the ground on which it rests cannot be disooverad. That the position must be maintained by thoae wha wish to uphold the institution of slavery, is apparent, from the afaot that human alavery oannot be sustained upon any principle of natural justice or national law, and an admission that power over the subject is vested in those who form State oonstitutloue, would strike at tha root of the evil, and proolalm freedom to tho slave thrangh the length and breadth of the laud. The assartion, than, of a want of constitutional power in Congress to prohibit tha original establishment of slavery in territories now free, is tho last entrenchment of the propagandises of slavery. [The address then outers into into along and slaborata examination of the doctrine, that Cong rasa baa not power over ths question of slavery in new territories, and oontends for ths prlnoiple that Congress has, and always had, the power to exclude slavery from new territories, golr.g over the whole history of tne constitution and aots of Congress, with the opinions of ths founders of the constitution, nnd of all the great man of the oountry, showing that Mr. Jefferson himself Introduced a I pruTIKU, 1U llin nuapa ui a iuo".miwii| iuouwubi iu -uwstance and spirit with the Wllmot proviso, in referanse to the North Western territory, nod that it was approved and acted upon by the Sooth as well as the North. It then goes on to say:] ??*? ?* May we not safely challenge an examination of oar publio archives for a more solemn recognition of any one principle than is here exhibited, of what we oontend for? What is it? 1st. A series of acts of Congress embracing tho principle passed at short intervals during the last (lftv years, approved by Presidents Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, and Vaa Buren; acts to which It would have been their sworn duty to ohjeot if they had doubted their oonstitutlonality. 3d. Acta ol a obaraotsr not less solemn than that of organising the government, prescribing the rights and duties personal and political; regulating the estates, their descent and the manner of disposing of them?of the inhabitants of eleven territories, nine of whioh have actually become States and members of the confederacy, and the remaining two are virtually snob. Si. Ante in six of wbioh, including the provision far Ohio, the existence oi slavery in ths territorial was prohibited expressly and forever, and in all of which, with one exception, express enactments were made, equally asserting the constitutional power in Congress ct 1 glaiative control over slavery in the territories. Vet strange to say, notwithstanding thle array of authority derived from the clear language of the constitution, us harmony with similar provisions, in respect to which there has never been any dispute, and with the known dispositions of its powers on the aubjeot of slavery, the continuation which the construction wo give to derived from contemporaneoee exposition?the opinions of our writers upou public law, and the solemn decisions of our highest judioial tribunals, ell sustained by an exercise of the power whioh in point either cf the solemnity PI mi HOlii icurni e<i|uiv?uau?v.

Nay mora, that daaial is mads by our southern associates in polltfo* a basis of a proscription of their political brethren at the north, as despotic as it Is unjust [After showing the liberal conduct of the nothern democracy towards their southern brethren, and that in supporting the south and its pecaliar institutions, they went as far ae they could, and even much farihsr than i their local opponents theught was right and just, the adI dress, iu reierenoe to this support, says :]? It is under these circumstances eud with such claims ! opon the forbearanoe and the justice, not to say thegra: titude of the South, that we are called upon to assume 1 the extraordinary and untenable petition which we i have discussed We are rcalled upon to deny the constitutional power of Congress to prevent or prohibit i slavery in any territory which is or may come within the ^jurisdiction of the f-deral government ; to deny e<]oal y the constitutional power of the people of snoh territory, while in a territorial condition, to prohibit slavery, and to assert the constitutional right of any Individual to go into such territory and hold slaves there as effectually as lie oau do in any Ststo where slavery is expressly authored by law. Farther, as wo hava already shown, the doctriuu oould not be carried without destroying the foundation of slavery it'a!,even io the -statoa. This doctrine has b:en deliberately adopted by th? democratic convontions of VngiaU. Alabama and Florida, I and in many other forms, by our SoutLrrn brethren; and : the dtmooracY of the North a.t- Soiled upen also to adopt it, and make it a part, of tMl political ''.reed, and M | ment of their issue w ith their poilti, al oppouentsloWn localities. We ere oaMcd tipou to rsrv '? constitutional the power of Coiigre" o?ef tu. iu - i.> [ rics, which has been exercised from the very ioundation cf the government, and under all administrations. We are called upon to deny ail power in Congress which has the government ot the territories, and iu tho people of tho toiiltorles, to prohibit slavery. but to Hfflrm the power of any one individual to establish it within the terrtry. No man is compelled to.bold slaves, even where slavery Is expressly authorised by law, and if any man who ahoosM to do so, can hold slaves iu territories, slavery is just ue'mur.h established there as In the Btatea where it is upheld by positive enactments. The dociriDo, therefore, when p'atnly stated, that wherever the flag of the Union goes, it carries slavery | with It, overturns the looal institution*,no matter how j strongly; ontrench-d in tho legislation, habits, and afTec tion oi loo ueopis, lr ireeaoin oe to?ir loiiantii condition, aul establishes in it* place slavery; it repeals the local laws, If they assure personal freedom to all, and eutboriz-s slavery.
