      And also, more darkly, for the armies already assembling. This act also was passed without yeas and nays. Accordingly Lincoln's talk was largely limited to establishing that the federal government had the right and power to restrict the spread of slavery to the territories. In the act of organization, they prohibited the bringing of slaves into the Territory, from any place without the United States, by fine, and giving freedom to slaves so bought. Those who now insist that federal control of slavery in federal territories violates the Constitution, point us to the provisions which they suppose it thus violates; and, as I understand, that all fix upon provisions in these amendatory articles, and not in the original instrument. Instead, Abraham Lincoln did triumph in New York.

      But you say you are conservative - eminently conservative - while we are revolutionary, destructive, or something of the sort. Let all the guaranties those fathers gave it, be, not grudgingly, but fully and fairly maintained. It is surely safe to assume that the thirty-nine framers of the original Constitution, and the seventy-six members of the Congress which framed the amendments thereto, taken together, do certainly include those who may be fairly called "our fathers who framed the Government under which we live. Those opposed to the National Government regulating slavery in the territories often point to the Amendments to the Constitution to justify their position. Over time, poor immigrant children, such as future Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, found it a quiet haven in the hurly-burly life of the lower east side. An enthusiast broods over the oppression of a people till he fancies himself commissioned by Heaven to liberate them.

      The burden of proof is on you. After taking the oath, Lincoln kissed the Bible surprisingly, given some of his ambivalence about organized religion. But no such right is specifically written in the Constitution. The country was left to form its own impressions. This is the rule; and the slave revolution in Hayti was not an exception to it, but a case occurring under peculiar circumstances. He urged fellow Republicans not to capitulate to Southern demands to recognize slavery as being right, but to "stand by our duty, fearlessly and effectively.

Macaulays speeches on copyright and Lincolns address at Cooper union book

We resisted, and still resist, your innovation; and thence comes the greater prominence of the question. One restriction forbade the importation of foreign slaves.

All they ask, we could readily grant, if we thought slavery right; all we ask, they could as readily grant, if they thought it wrong. The question recurs, what will satisfy them? But you will break up the Union rather than submit to a denial of your Constitutional rights. Indeed, such condemnation of us seems to be an indispensable prerequisite—license, so to speak—among you to be admitted or permitted to speak at all….

Of these, Roger Sherman, Thomas Mifflin, and Hugh Williamson voted for the prohibition, thus showing that, in their understanding, no line dividing local from federal authority, nor anything else, properly forbade the Federal Government to control as to slavery in federal territory.

They counted on white Southern slaveholders to realize — at some point in the future — that free labor would create a more prosperous and productive society than slave labor.

You will rule or ruin in all events. An eyewitness that evening said, "When Lincoln rose to speak, I was greatly disappointed. Every Republican man knew that, as to himself at least, your charge was a slander, and he was not much inclined by it to cast his vote in your favor.

Four of the thirty-nine were in the "Pre-Constitution" Congress when in it failed to pass an Ordinance prohibiting slavery in the Northwest Territory 3 voted for the prohibition, one against.

Thus, the Republican stance of the time was not revolutionary, but similar to the Founding Fathers, and should not alarm Southerners, for radicals had threatened to secede if a Republican was elected President. You advocate new and untried ideas.

And also, more darkly, for the armies already assembling. Spelling and typographical errors have been preserved as in the original.

Lincoln Addresses the Nation

The two men faced each other in a series of seven debates across Illinois inand the well-publicized encounters established Lincoln as a political force in his home state. Silence will not be tolerated - we must place ourselves avowedly with them.

If slavery is right, all words, acts, laws, and constitutions against it, are themselves wrong, and should be silenced, and swept away.

I am quite aware they do not state their case precisely in this way. To be sure, slight majorities of Republicans in both houses of Congress voted against the amendment, but it never could have been passed without Republican leadership and significant Republican support.

We must stop calling slavery wrong. They may have voted against the particular bills because they found them inexpedient there is no record of them calling the Bills unconstitutional.

This time the prohibition became a law, being part of what is now well known as the Ordinance of ' Silence will not be tolerated - we must place ourselves avowedly with them.Jul 05,  · Welcome to part four of our series on the serious and striking comparisons between the U.S. in the months (and years) before the presidential campaign and the presidential campaign.
