7 2 perty stand 1b Nature and God, and every Invasion of them is sacrilege The only legitimate fanction of cm! government is to protect these rights in all their original fulness and sacrcdnees But the Vice President la a slaveholder, and in self defence he must assert the power of civil government to destroy the rights of persons So too be must assert its power to destroy the rights of property, and to abolish slavery. For to abolish slavery is, as he holds, to destroy those rights and he clearly sees that If civil government cannot abolish sla very, then upon hut own principle it cannot creste it. The Vice lTesident has made a mistake The only posi tlon at this point on the side of slavery, which he could have taken with consistency, he ha- failed to take In one breath he makes property in man to be as full as pro perty in any thing else?as propertyof whatever kind." In another breath ho admits that the State can abolish property in man. What if his State should undertake to abolish property tn the matchless blue grass tields around hia Lex lngton, and In the highly improved breeds of cattle that graie upon them?would he not rcMti such abolition? From what I personally know of hisspirit and intelligence, I ven ture to attlrm that none would be before him in decUnug that God and nature have said what is property and that their authority is paramount to that of Kentucky - T" j have been consistent, then, he should not h^yesdiuiltod j the right of the State to abolish property In man lie has | admitted a distinction between slave proj>ertjr and other property. and if not so wide as that the republicans claim, nor even so wide as thai acknowledged by the DougliwiUw, sufficiently so, nevertheless, to g!V" countenance to each, and to deprive lna opposition to each of the dignity and foree of a coolest lor a priuciple. Tn# only contest for a principle at Ibis point i< that which the abolittooists are waging against republicans, democrats, Douglas itc.-. and all oilier ruemies and despisera of human right* The soum! abslitiouist tolerates tn no circumstances Uo- claim of property m man. He respects God, and cannot consent to sink to the lovetof hi stss the bsiigmade in His image. 1 "resident Buchanan in bt? speech of last Monday asks i what he "as a l'eonsyIranian would say or do" in case it should be contended that aTerrMsry could outlaw iron or coal. And 1 ask him what he would say or do iu case Pennsylvania herself should attempt such outlawry. If he is still a man?if the politician has not yet entirely consumed the man?he would promply ret. 1st his Slate, and scout the idea of her power to strike down the rights of property. Bui, Mr. President, >ou did cooseol to her abolishing slavery?or, in other words, to nej- obolithing property in man. What Uien becomes of tbe lis.-is doc trine of your speech?that property Is property ?and that oronertV in men IB an u ant? r,lli..r nrnnarli-V Th* right* of property Me a* inviolable and Indestructible an those of person?and the jUHliiicalioa of Pennsylvania for abolishing slavery is that she therein touched no rights of property. Just here let roe say that the parties vastly over rate the importance of the petty issue* between them. The battle is to he (ought between the slaveholders and the abolitionists and it will be fought just as soon at these parties that block tiie way get out of the way. The result will be, not this or that I condition, this or thai liability, of a Territory; but a na lion all overspread with slavery, or all emptied ol it. The result will be to give the lie to the Declaration of Inde poo deuce," or to honor its great doctrine, that ''all meu are created equal." It is true that many members of the republican party believe slavery to be unconstitutional wherever the federal government has exclusive jurisdiction. Itut they all acquiesce in the proposition that this government has no right to array itself against slavery in the States, aud nearly all would accept the logical sequence that this government is bound to prMeet Slats slavery from all foreign aggression. In s word, all the parties believe that the Nortb is pledged by the coustitu tion, not only to return the fugitive slave, but even to inarch South for the defence ol Slav cry. Truly, this is bemg pledged to the |>er|>eiratlon of enormous wickedness. f or my own jisri I do not sec 1uai this pledge exists Hut the North does; and hence Iter only wise aud Christian course is pi eulreat the South to liberate her from It either by consenting Pi change the constitution at this point or by consenting to let her, the North, to go out of the I'nion. Surely, the people of the Sluth will not insist that we ahall continue pi Irsmple up.iu our consciences and kill our souls by contributing to uphold a system, whitb, however innocent it miiy be in their eyce. is in our own more full of injustice to inau and dishonor to Hod than any other on earth lot the Siutb do to the North as iu an exchange of circumstances, she would have the North do to the Smth. What if the Northern States should adopt the policy of ou-lavmg her light haired iieojiie, and the South should then be holding as she does now, in common with the North, to Hie doctrine of the absolute right of a , State, as against the national government, Pi do what ahe will with her neoeie?she would, of course, regard herself I as constitutionally bound to ii|>bold this |?>licy. How deeply desirous, therefore, would she be to be released from all responsibility for it. Kor she would believe it to be ail e(weeding|y wicked policy. Yet, what more wicked is it to euwlare peo|>ie because of their light hair tbau because of their dark skint I believe the constitution to be ant i slavery. I believe that it im|>oeea no obligation upon me to uphold and fight for murder in Maryland or for the worse crime of starery in Kentucky. Hut const itu I ton or no constitution. I would have the North vole slavery to death. The North, however, believes the constitution to be pro slavery, and that whilst It remains unchanged such vol tug would be wrsng. Again, 1 would have every slave run away from his macter, and I would ailord him every facility for his peaceful escape. I would tell him, as I have been telling hitn these twenty years, to "take the horse, the boat, the food, the clothing," and to believe in no rights of property anywhere in the boulh, as against his needs?uor, indeed, in the North either so long as it continues to be to him so "enemy's country " l?t him take what be will, human life alone excepted But the North, interpreting the right uf the slaveholder to hit slave to be a constitutional right, and holding every constitutional I right to be sacredly inviolable, and paramount to every other right, whether in earth or heaven, cannot consistently put forth its hand in any way to deliver the slave. I repeat, then, that the North, taking her at her own view of her obligations, bas no other alternative than to east herself upon the good feeling of the Honth, and petition for a change in the ennsittuinm or a peaceable release from the I'nton The right of such release?be It the release of the North or the South, the Kast or the Writ? I argued is my speech in Congress on the Mexican Treaty. That right I hold to now, and that right I be lievr the South is mst and generous enough to acknowledge. As you are aware, I am as ready to look South as North for justice, generosity and manliness l*> you say that the .south Is greatly corrupted by slavery? Sbe Is, but not more than th?> North Slavery is upheld at the South in accordance with education. At the North In the I face of education. The South believes It to bo morally right to demand the return of fugitive slaves The North brlieves it to be morally wrong?constitutionally rtghl.bul morally wrong?toLreturn them and yet re turns*them Is not the North, then, the more wicked ? the more corrupted?of the two? Certain is It l? my own mind that the North bears a more corrupting relation to slavery than does the South Char he Sumner, that pare and brave sad strong and learned man, does, in his speech of day before yesterday tn New York, distinctly convey the Idea that the American I'oion is no more responsible far slavery In Charleston than in Constantinople.

But I have no such surplus goodness to vote upon. and therefore tor me to cast sucn an unrighteous vote would be to reduce myself to utter Slid immediate moral insolvency. Christian, were Jesus again on the earth, would you vote to have him lead the tones for returning the poor slave to the disabilities and tortures from which be had escaped? The bare proposition Is most abhorrent to you. How, then, can you cousent to vote for Mr. Douglas, or Mr. Lincoln, or any other man. who virtually tells you that be is willing to lead them lias not party spirit blinded you? Nay, has it not corrupttd you? What is too abominable for Christ to do Is too abominable for any man to do; and llins would you yourself decide la every case where the spirit of Christ and not the spirit of party prompted the decision. 1 sail! thai I must not vote for a slave c itcner. *> pro feasion of deep and tender interest for the slave is a life, long one To turn now and vote again-it him?to vote that if he escape from chattelhood to manhood he shall be thrown dow n again from manhood to chattelhood? would not that be giring an emphatic lie to this profes Hon? Again, when men get to be as old as lam. they have an especial reason for not adding to the number of their sins?particularly of their great rids Their '-space for rc|n-iiiaiue" it. reduced to a narrow one?too narrow to supply all the penitential tears which even one such enormous sin as voting a man back into slavery calls for. Hut I am asked whether I would withhold my vote from a candidate because I foresee one official wrong In him, and yet feel assured that lie will be guilty of no other Certainly, if that wrroug is the murdering, or, what is worse, the en-daving, ot bis fellow men. The wrong done to one man is not cancel! d by right dealing toward even all other men. Moreover, lam not at liberty to feel assured that In- w ho is pledged to commit the tnos ttlagr&n! uijuslice against one man will not. when as strong temptation calls for it, b? guilty of as llagrant injustice toward oilier men There is but little hone for cither temperance or freedom in our day. Too few of their present friends are their true friends <lod grant that the next generation may hare the wisdom, integrity and courage to rote away the dramshop and slavery. But in the mean time will not our land b? more deluged with rum than It Is even now It And (fearful question I> will it not alao be deluged with the blood of the slaveholder and the slave' It does not follow that because four millions of slaves submit to the yoke, six or eight millions w ill. How, indted, ran we hope for either of these great causes in our d*> f The f tends of temperance would like to vote against rum?hut they love their parties too well to do so. Politics have a far stronger hold than temp* ranee upon them. As to slavery-, the North does not dislike it enough to break away from all scruples and all parlies for the sake of voting against it and neither North nor booth is willing to come into the amicable v rangement of putting away slavery by their consenting to share in the present lose of putting away the crime and corse for which both are equall) responsible.

The Democratic Party-Its Division?Its Doty In Connsetlcnt. From the Hartford I Conn.) Dally Time., July 19.] There is a split In the democratic party. This fact cannot be denied, and it is better for the party and the country that it should be calmly considered by the democr?i c masses. We bear much about "office holders." Tt).- try has been used by the btsck republicans ever sinr. they had a party organization, and it is now taken up by the office seekers who support Judge Douglas, death m' n selected for their capacity and their virtues to disclarge official duties are entitled to as much respect as oilier cilisens, so long as they bebeve themselves as good citiaens should. At least they ought to be considered as worthy as office seekers whose virtues hare not yet been tried w any public capacity. The office seekers My that the office holders are guilty of a political crime in endeavoring to keep the democratic electors together in tli< support of s single ticket against the common enemy. It will he well for the people to consider this grave charge, and decide for themselves whether H Is really a political crime to keep the old dmscracy together in Connecticut, to My nothing of other .States. New. being neither officer holders or office seekers?be log aider no obligations to government, State or national? never having held any office and never Intending to hold any, having no favors to ask; but being, as we have been or many years past, devoted to the weltkre of the democrat c party, and being most earnestly opposed to the present sectional and dangerous black republican party I our roailnpu mr 111 imp.L.n nu If mtm onnnat In Ikn risannrratii' voted Uumselves, lo take this subject into their own bands, and save (lie democratic party in Connecticut from dk-ruptioh A.- we bave already remarked, their la a split in the national organization. Whether this split shall last longer ill hi the sixteen abort weeks that intervene between tlutime and the Presidential election, remains to be seen. Of one thing we foel certain. There will be a democratic national organ i tat km, in which the friends of State rights, the constitution and the Union, North and South, can act te- I getber unitedly. But in the tew weeks of this campaign there will be two Presidential candidates. Each will have lus friends and supporters. It is claimed on one hand, that Mr. Douglas is regularly nominated, on the other. thathU nomination was in violation of the usages of the democratic party, after refusing seals to a large number of de legate. who had a legitimate right to participate in the proceedings of the Convention. At the same time Mr. Breckinridge did not get a nomination under the rules and regulat.ons of the democratic organisation, and as President Hu< lianan suggest-, neithsr having been uomin ted under the rules of the party, democrats will not be bound to support either, but will vote for one or the other as their preferences may dictate. Here is a split that all good democrats must deplore. But still it exists. and it is evident to every impartial observer that Mr. Brirkinridge will carry full one third, if not quite one-ball, of the el*ctoml votes of the Union. But in tha present condition of the party it is difficult lo aay where Judge Douglas cao get one electoral vote. We had sup posed he could carry his own State. But four tickets, it is announced, w ill be run there, and we must confess that the present state of the case throws a doubt over the result in Illinois In Peonsylranla and New Jersey a union ticket would probably be successful, and the [xaople there are moving lo effect it. Without a union those States will go for Lincoln, certain. Straoge as it may appear, under these circum-lances, the Douglas leaders, or office seekers, oppose the union. We can account for this only in one way. They desire that the democratic party .'shall be broken up, and that Lincoln shall be elected, ou the suppwltioa i bat his success will speedily be followed by a disruption of the black republican party, with fragments of whtoh they intend to combine, form a new party, and ride into office. This, it has been suggested, Is their plan. We can hardly credit it, but slill their movements appear to give much plausibility to the assertion. If any such scheme exists, it must Inevitably be broken down completely with the termination of the present Presidential canvass. Now, for one moment let us loik st the condition or Connecticut. The democracy polled last April 43,920. and fell only 624 votes short of success. Since 1830 they have gained about 10,000 votes, and cut down a maturity against them or over 10.000 to about 500. The same rate of gains would carry us through the contest of next November in triumph. Now .'shall the 43 920 democrats who so noblv stood shoulder to shoulder last April, remain firm and united in the November contest, with a prospect oi succes*; or shall they be divided, and go into the oon test with no prospect of a triumph7 Six names can be selected in Connecticut, of oil and reliable democrats, in whom every democratic elector lias the ftil est confi dence?the preferences of three of them to be in fsvor of Breckinridge and of three for Douglas The conditions in their nomination may be simple sod unobjectionabls to any democrat who cares more for the welfhre of the par ty than he does for aelfish ends; athus, If elected, the six votes of these electors shall bal eiven where thev will most surely defeat Abraham Lincoln. If they can be at any benefit to Senator Douglas he shall bare them. If tbc> can elect Breckinridge, give them to htm. If they can elect neither, but can still aid In defeating I.lncoln, let three be gtren to each. t every democrat ask himself whether, in his own mind, there Is an) thing objectionable In such an arrangement. It If not to fofm a revolting coalition with opponents, bat s simple proposition to keep the old demo ciatlc famlh together in this crisis?to coocentrate the 44.000 democratic votes so that they will tall with affect. I?nl It wound your sense of political duty to act in harmo ny Ust spring, democrats of Connecticut" Will it hurt your feelings to "give a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull all together" next fall* {foiled, you msy defeat the common foe. Divided, you will yourselves be defeated. This Is certain. But, successful or defeated, the democracy of Connect 1 cut, weprosumr. will not have fulfilled their mission ths moment next fall's election Is ended. Wo have congressmen, s Governor. legislature, he , to elect next spring. If united this fall, ho shall we present a compact and |<owrrfiil front next spring, and shall secure most gratifying triumphs then. But if divided this fall, we fear the breach will not be readily healed, and that de feats in the future will fall upon us Kor the fetors wel'are of the part) union in defeat in the coming fall will be of as mu' li importance to us as union in triumph. In either case Its infloenre must bs great. It is for the people in the various towns to say whether a united demo- I cracy shall go into the coming contest with a prospect of snooeMi. or wbalher, divided, we shall bo plungsd upon Inevitable defeat.

It thinks New Haven and Hartford together will exhibit an increase of over 40,000, which would be, of itself, an increase of 11 per cent on the total population of the State. Meridea, which numbered 3,670 inhabitants in I860,it now ored ted with 7,300?en increase of 3,830. New Britain has increased from 3,029 to nearly 6,000 Vernon stands at 3,823, ! again.-12.900 in 1860. The borough of Danbury counts over 6,010, which is larger than the whole towa, inctui ding the present town of Bethel, ten years ago. Those places. It is true, are amoug the most thriving maaofae! turing towns or the State, but there are plenty more like them.
