There may lie disunionists in the South, but leave us to deal with them and crush them out In the same way deal you with black republicanism and crush It out. (Ap plause ) Slavery will not go wbere it is not wanted; It is governed by natural laws-of soil and climate, and we are content to leave it to Its uaturai expansion. Above a well defined parallel of latitude it cnuuol be profitably employed It is madnoss, then, to seek to limit it by le i striatum, by us .r|>aliou, by tnttsmtng the North against ! the South, and by proclaiming huinauitarlan doctrlues, as thallo* as tbey are dangerous To God's providence tbis great tnt-*rest m utt be committed; He sees tbe sub- ' lime march i f nations?He a'onecan guide our steps; and i it is stupendous f>lly, as well as audacity, for our brelh- | reo or the North to iwss away from the lines of tltsir own social system in the vain hope of reform! g ours. I have said that It would be s gro-s violation of tbe constitution l> engraft upon the government a doltcy luwtile to slavery. It would be more than thin?It would be a llagrant breach of good faith. Dies any man believe that tbe federal government could have been con structed t! It bad been understood that the powers were to be directed against slavery In tbe Slates? Why, It was expressly stipulated in the constitution that the fo reign slave trade should not be prohibited by the g ivern moni tor twenty jears after III adoption. Why stipulate for the continued Importation of slaves for twenty years, if It was to be the policy of the govern me it In Tut ire to eradicate that ina.itution In the States? Why not forth with cut ofl all further supply of slaves fiom abroad? Ho resolute were tbe framera of the constitution upon this pMM that the power to regulate com nerce by n bar majority v He ot tbe two houses of Congress was not granted untd that clause in reference to the importation of persons from abroad was first secured. If, then, the government could not have been constructed with a dis tinct understanding at the lime that its policy was to be directed agaiual slavery, ts it not both unaousti '.utlunul and a flagrant breach of good faith to seise the departments of that government?a government common to all the States?and turn them against that system of labor in ths Southern States? The constitution provides fur tbe re presentation ol slaves as an elementary part of the ma chtnerv of the gpvermnenl: and it prohibtti tbe cutting off a still larger supply of slaves from Africa for twenty year*. How, then, can It be sneer tod that this ts an auti slavery government in its un tare, a d thti tt was put upon the wrong track forty years since by admitting a alaveholdlng Stale into the Colon. Ought not the people of n Stale to ea.ioy the privilege of framing their own dorientic institution? Can hostility to slavery, upon the ground of its being a moral wrung, as Mr Seward aoaerls It to be. authorize a slat?amau to direct tbe energies of a common government ugaiusl it, when the constitution not only confers no such power, but when us provisions actually are made to |>er|>"tuaU tt* Is not thisadirsct appeal to the higher law All that the South asks is that the constitution be upheld; she demands noibtug but that the gorernmrrt be ad ministered in the spirit of that instrument Her enemies are the enemies of the constitution, and they can reach her institutions ooly by trampling tiial under loot, due does not envy tbe prosperity ol tbe North She rejoices in the increasing wealth sod |?ver of a kindrei people: she witnesses your rapid advancement, your wonderful growth, with just pride, and she bids you go on in your course of expansion and civilization she stea your splendid cities with hearty aatlMactlon, and glories in your onmmerce, which boars tbe flag of the republic to the rcmstest seas of the globe, she si content who her own lot. site asks no special legislating for her benefit, all that ah- Unman'Is la a full particl nation In tbe benefits of n common govern ment, n full recognition of her rights, and a clear vindi cation of her honor.

But feeling aa I do, that the perpetuity of our government Is oaramounl to all party tiea, I do not hesitate to declare my wil lingoeas to unit* with all national Union m-u to crush out the spirit which vitalizes a moot dangerous sectional organization. How this Is to be beet accomplished Is not for me to say. I leave It to thoae who are beat acquainted with all the local influent** by which you are surrounded, to adopt that mode of combination which shall be beet calculated to attain the desired end. Your motto of "Cnton fbr the sake of the Union" Is the motto of victory as well as of patriotism. ( Aupla-taa ) I have said, and I believe, that this sectloual republican party la a dangerous organization It Is confined to one section alone Its candidates fbr the Presidency and Vine Presidency are taken from tbe same section It cannot poll one single electoral vote In all tbe slavebolding States. Appealing to all the fanatical prejudices agaiost slaverv, and oomblnlng the perhaps equally strong element of tbe spoils of otlice, they are waging war against the rights and Interests and prosperity of Ufleen stales of this con federacy. I do uot eav that there are not conservative men who have atta-b.'-d themselves lo this party under lh? vain deb sion that they can arreat the wild Intoxica tion of a blind fanaticism. They are wofully mistaken if they ihuik so They will be crushed to the earth, and thrown on as a useless Incumbrance In the onward progress of this higher lew party As Hanry (.'lay said to some gentlemen to whom he talked upon a kindred subject to this, " You cannot keep up with this party, if you attempt to do it and have ulti mately to stop you will be denounoed es a traitor to Its principles, and fall far below whu you would havebien If you bad never united yourself to it ' I r?{rot thxt these oooservattve men in different portions of tbe coun try have fell Inclined to unite, from one nurse or an other, with a party that I conscientiously believe to be i tbe moat dangerous party that ever arose in tbis govern ment, or any other government, according to any history that I have read of any country upon earth Whit are the principles of that party* They say that they desire to prevent slavery going into tbe Territories tint that is the only distinctive feature they have got?thai It It the one idea, (tome of them ssy that but one geotlemsn who came Into Indiana, to the border* of Kentucky, to answer a speech I had ma-'e there att-mpting to portray the dangers of sectionalism, agreed, so I was told by a gentleman present 1 dil oot bear htm my self?agreed that slavery ought to go where it is profit able, but not to Ibe cold and irozen regions of tb* North, where every Southern man knows it raaiud go Mr Seward, In the Senate < f the l ulled states, said that the j battle had been fought and the victory won; and he says i now in a speech he reoently made, that slavery cannot go into tbe Terrttor-es, unless you open the Afrioan slave | trade, and import more alavrs to curry there. Now Is thee any probabil ty of that* I tell yod?and I am from a Southern State, one called a Southern Slate, from a , eaveboid.iig Slate?ibat among all my acquaintance throughout the entire South, there are tine men in every ton?aye, ninety nine ia every ore hundred?who are op posed to reopening the African slave trade (Loud ap i plan-so) Now, If that la their object, If that portrayed really and truly tbe principle* of Ihli ri publican parly, I if they desired aaly to save northern Territory where Shivery caim d go, then sectional at that parly is.

If the South ffaoull form a merely Southern sectional orgaaizlaloa, such on this sectional Northern party, dividing the coun try by n geographical line, the drat great efficient step for disunion will have been token I appeal to all the lovers of tho Union, no matter what their past partiss ties may have been, to unite for the purpose of pro renting such n calamity (F.otbuiiastic applause).

The whole people of Kentucky cherish towards it an abiding love, an unfaltering devotion, and thoy appeal to tbslr Northern brethren to rally under a cominun atandard for its protection and defence (Great applause). To do this you must crush out sectionalism. North and &>uth, banish disturbing attractions and adhere to the ooi ntilutiou as It was mate by our fathers. It seems to me that s voice is now arising from every battle field of liberty, invoking us to unite to preserve unimpaired tin-glorious heritage which has been trans milled to us I believe if the sun of this Union should ever set it will go down in blood, and there will be no morning to the dark night of anarchy and despotism wbxli will ensue It ts In your power to avert this calamity.

That was the sentiment of 1774 That was the sentiment of the Declaration of Independence, which is unjustly cited by the republicans to show that It was the spirit of that time that the negro was 0,0a! with the while man. But all Intelligent men wid readily perceive that the words of the Declaration, which they misrepresent, were never intended to apply to the negro. It Is unjust for the republicnn party to put such au errmeous construction u|>oo It. All Instruments should be interpreted according to their ootem|>oraneous history; and all know that there eras no agitation about the negro at the lime of the forma tion of the constitution. Toe declaration that all men are equal was called forth by the oppression which the people o[ the colonies endured from the Brlli-h Crown, and had reference to the people of Kngland and the people of the colonies. It never for one moment was Intended to apply to the negro. (Cheers, and cries of "Good ") Passing from this topic, the speaker alluded to the principles of the republican party, which. If carried out, would array one portion of the Union against the other, and the fanati al leaders of that party would not top till one portion ws- -ubdnad.

' Therefore, In ctnclus on, he earnestly appealed to all Union loving citizen-, a I I King's.-, aud Bell, and Breckin ridge men, lo stand upon one oirmon ground, and to act lu perfect union, so that at the ei >uing olerlion tliey might defeat their common enemy?the republican nomi nee. Old Abe Lincoln (Loud d eer* ) Bunt L. Ykuk was the neat speaker. He was greeted at the outset with great enthusiasm. He spoke in the beginning of the fallacy of the policy which toe republt can party pursued in always agilaliug (be questica of the eternal nigger. For himself he bad nothing to sty about that matter further than that It was beuraeh common sense, com.non decency and men of intellect to discuss the miserable question of what ihall be done with a few niggers (Cries of "That's so" and cheers ) But It was for all lnteUllgeot men rather to say what shall lie done with our common country? It was now In peril in oonse quence of the spread of rcpublloan ; rtnelples It was through the d -mocrat c party, uoder tn? lead of Jeirerson and Jaokson, that all the bloes<ng* wlflch our people now enjoyed bad been vouches'ed to the country. (Cheers ) The republican party had never brought any benefit to the nation This blank republican party was now no more nor less ibsn an abortive attempt at Federalism. After remarks Irom Hon John Cochrane, Henry Arcula George Campbell and others, the meeting adjourned amid much enthusiasm. THE WESTERN STAND. BTEKCH or ?U P. NORTON.
