Tho Hennto then took up tbe specinl order, viz: the joint resolution to amend the constitution ao ai to forever prohibit slavery and Involuntary servitude, except lor crime Mr. Trcmmu., (rep.) of III., said, without stopping to inquire into all tbe causes which led to tbe Preseut rebel lion, and had brought oo the country all the distress, desolation Mid doaih which bad followed iu tueir traiu, be could sa:ely assume that they chiefly sprung from slavery. Jf a la:ge party in the country attribute tbe carjee of our difficulties to tho impertinent interfererca of philanthropists aud fanatics In tbe Vorthern States with an Institution In the South which did uot concern them, hi; replied bad there been n<>eucb institution to Imorrcro with, there would have been no such alleged impertinent inieriorenne. Had there been | no slavery in tbe ^outt there would have been uo ab II tionists In tbe N'ertb If It be ?ald It was the detertnitia tion or^tbe South to rule the government in tbotntoiests of slavery, and failing iu that to set up au empire of its own, founded on slavery us iu chief corner stone, which led to tho rebellion, he replied that without slavery there could have been no such foundation on which to build It tbe rreedom of spe?cb and of tin prats, so d-ar to froetn^n everywhere and tin all times, and cherished eipertally in ibis tioie-of war by those opposed to tho ad ministration, hM during all our lives beon denied as iu a largo portion 01 the republic, It was slavery which de manded it. If tbe halls of tbe <>apitol have rebounded from our earliest recollection* with the strireimd coolest* of acctlnns, ending sometimes iu blood, it wag slavery which almost always occasioned them. No superficial observer of our history, North or ?outh,ofauy party, cou'd doubt that slavsry was at Ihe bottom of our present troubles. Our fathers, who fr?tne<i ihe constitution, regurded slavery as an evil, and looked .'orwcnl to Its early extinc tion. l'hey felt <ho inconsistency of their position while proclaiming the equal rights of all to life, liberty and nipplneaa. Henco they refused to permit the word "Slave" to be iuoorporaiod into the constitution, ieat future generations should learn from tbe instrument itself that It bad once existed. The history of tbe last sovonty years bad proved that the founders of the re public were mistaken tn their expectations that slavery would be abolished; and slavery, so far from gradually disappearing as they anticipated, had so strengthened Itself that in 1800 its advocttcs demanded the control of the nation Iu its Interest; falling in wbleft they attompted the overthrow of the government. .At Ural there was adis Incl nation ou tho part of the Executive to Interfere in any m .lit er with slavery; and orders were issued aud executed driving back to tbo assistance of the enemy slaves who escaped to our lines. Concres?, nowover, In obedience to popular sentlmont, at an early day took action against this policy. At the July session in lHfll an act was passed forfeiting tbe owner's right to any slave whom ho should permit to be employed in any shape in aid of the rebel lion. Ibis act eflicier.tiy enforced would have treed largo numbers of slaves, built was never esocuicd. At the r.vui'ir sc?ston convened la ! e ember, lWll, ?'ongress p -sod another act miking froanll slaves who shoul-1 come wiili,a our lines, be deserted by their masters, or v bo should come under the control of tho l'nito4 Slates authorities. It v as a long tin* before slaves cac i|un; to our lines were protocted, and longer still before they wi? orgsnizod to aid in tbe suppiesaion of the rebellion. In :act, it wis more tliau a >iar afur t'.o jxiksage or the act demsndeil by tho public voico bet re snr ctr.ishientble number of |*r*cns of African descent wric airaej; sod even now a m eli less number are in the fold ;..?i mighl h.ivo been by tho adoptk n or more energetic measures on thj part of those charged with ihe execution of the iaw?. , Tbo constitutional authority of Congress to pass sets ! giving freed m to tho slavs of itbe's Mor.s hns been questioned by come, thangb It la hollared to be fully <-i!S'ttti.rd liy the usages of u Uuc.1 uud mo doewtou* of courts. Tb-so acts of (onsrosa, If efficiently execmcd, ?ouiii during the progress of tbe v sr hrive emancipated most 01 the slaves; for they be! nrcd to p?rrons who have In si me Way aJed iu tb' rebel I loo. Tbe power ex ercised by a commander In chief as sm h nmst be a pi*, er exercised infant and b ymd his I'ne*, where his a: mi *s eiuoot go, bis order.'! aro mo re Inn am and a*n neither work a foneitme ot properly nor iieo dom o slaves. ,tll ttieae laws and proclamation#, giving to ?ach the 'argent eject claimed by tta friends, are ln?f. fectual to tbo destruction or slavery The towa of Con gress, If eflictfMty execnietl, would leave rrrnainmg tbe slaves belonging to loyal ma-1ere, which, considering bow many aro hold by children and females uot engaged In tho rebellion, would be no inconsiderable namber, and the President's prootaaatioa exe pts from Its provisions all of Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Toaneasec. Mis souri. snd s good part of Louisiana and Virginia, almost half tbe slave States. If, therefore, we would get rla of elavery, and make enr land In ract what we bare Kng eiaisned for It in name?the "land of tbe frd?." Pome more affective measure nraat be rasorteU to than baa yet been adopted Some bad supposed that this conlil be accomplished by an act of Congress declaring slavery abolished everywhere. But tba power to pass snch sn sot was <leoied by others, snd It was difficult to see bow it 0011 Id be malntaiued. It was asserted by eoino tbst this power mighi be exercised as Incident to tba war power, which waa conceded to exist in tbe federal government. What is tbe war powsrt It is tbe power to ralae and snpimrt trolsa. std use them against tbe oonasoa eoa my. Under this power aiavM as wall aefreemwi mav doubtleas be put Into the army, enemy a property may be taken, and biaalavaaaot at liberty. But wbat right tfoea thia give to frea tba alavoa of loyal oitiMhs In loyat Htatas? None, suraly, unle a it is a necessity to tbe raising and aapp rtlng of srmiea aad carrying oa the war. Congrera had authority to draft, and bad passed lawa for that pnrpoes If It bad not dona sa, power to do It exists, and there can, therefore, be no necessity to rree all tho slaves tn tho land In order to rates armlee. Nor ia it neceasary to froo tbatn la order to carry on tba war. It ralglit bs a coavenieoos to do sa, and it may ba asserted that Incidentally each an ant woald a d in snppressiag tbe rebeliioa. Sn it aatght be said Al>at If Cu greu wore to pass a law limiting tbo prtcs of wages la tbe land, no Mate m ecu ante or laborer shonld rscaivs 'or bH services mora than flveorot* aday,ths edeot would hat. euc rsge eullsuneula aad prevent da> sertlon, as well as to aave moaey to tbo pavernment, which vonld then be abla torsive troops at less expense than at |Ve>?nt yet who w uid pretend Oial Omar sea possessed authority to pass snch a law? tbd eO'y emo tive mode of udding tba oountry or slavery la by a coostl tntMhal amaodment, forever pr hi bit lag iu axiatenoa within tba Jnrladlotlon of tba United Stataa. This amend ment adopted, and not etily does elavery eeaaa, but licaa never be established by ftate authority or m any other way than by again amandins tba oonstitatkm: whereaa If slavery thould now be atHlshed by an aet of Ooogresa ar preoliiBiatwn of tba l'reaidetit. assuming that either bss.lhe power ta do it, there is natbtuff in tba aonstItalian to prevent any State irom agam re-eatabUsbing It.
