FOR PRESIDENT IN 1SG0,
STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS.
Of the United Slates.
- - Of Tennessee:
We gave last n abstract of the
Message of the President, and quoted the
most'ir.portant pan relative to slavery in
the Territories. It is hardly necessary to
eay that the positions taken by Mr. Buch
anan "totally differ from what u considered
ns'th'c true doctrine ly the Democracy of
the North and West, and will be repudi
ated by the great majority of the party.
In order to show the fallacy of the Pres
ident's argument, it will do no harm to
. . t ' . i
put again betore ine eyes oi oar reauers
the .most extraordinary passages of that
extraordinary paragraph in the Message
concerning the territories. It cpens thus :
I cordially congratulate you upon the
final settlement Ly the Supreme Court of
the United States, cf the question of sla-
...... " V, n Torrilnrlo tvKirfl hr.t f!rS-
cnted cn aspect so truly formidable at the
-commencement of my administration."
If it is true that the Supreme Court,
ly the Drcd Scott decUion, "finally settl
ed the question of slavery in the Territo
ries," then Mr. Buchanan is singularly
behind his time in congratulating Con
gress upon an event which had occurred
three years, previous the delivery of his
Message, a document supposed to con
tain new information. Bat he knew very
well that such was not the case, and in
writing those Jiri2S, he evinced a degree
of coolness unsurpassed by anything we
have heard of for a long time. The truth
is, the question of tslavery was not settled
by the Supreme Court; it lias perhaps
never been so far from being settled as it
'is now ; it is the prominent topic now at
'issue in all parts of the Union; and
UCYCr UClUIU YY&3 UUilllUU UU 11113 cdlllC
"settled question more violent than it is
at the present time. Everybody knows!
that, "and no one is better acquainted with 1
these facts than the President.
Mr. Buchanan proceeds as follows :
'The right has been established of cv-
ery citizen to take his property of any kind,
including slaves, into the common Terri
tories belonging equally to all the States
of the Confederacy, and to have it pro
tected there under the Federal Constitu
tion. Neither Congress, nor a Territorial
Legislature, nor any human power has
any authority to annul or impair tnia ves
ted right. The supreme judicial tribunal
of the country, which is a co-ordinate
branch of the government, has sanctioned
and affirmed these principles of consti
tutional law, .o manifestly just in them
selves, and so well calculated to promote
peace and harmony among the States."
Now, there area great many men of
high standing, Mr. Djugla3 among them,
who, we suppose, are as good readers and
. as good lawyers as Mr. Buchanan, and
who deny that the Supreme Court ever
decided any such thing. The attorney of
the slaveholders in the Dred Scott case,
Hon. Reverdy Johnson, and even mem
bers of the Court itself, have repeatedly
declared that no such decision was given.
. The only point really decided was, that
Dred Scoit, being a negro, was not a cit
izen of the United Slates, and, therefore,
right to property in slaves, J.ic evil would
"The evil would be intolerable!" In
deed! When did Mr. Buchrr.an made
this discovery ? No dU it u since he
wrote his letter of acce;tauc8 cf the Pre
sidential nomination; for, i;f w: "re...e
Icr right, he then sai l thru' '',:.$ r.ecple
of a Territory, like ihos cf' a Side,
should determine the slavery question for
The ?.z quotation we will make, reads
as follows : V- ,L..' .'. '
"Thus his the stilus of: a Territory,
during the intermediate period frou
its first settlement until it shall become a
State, been irrevocably Hied by the final
decision cf the Supreme Court.".
This is cool, too! "There's ice in it."
Irrevocably filed ! Are the decisions cf
courts never reversed ? In the language
Mr. Buvhansn himself used when speak
ing in the Senate of the United States on
a decision of the Supreme Court, "eyen
these decisions, like all other human
things, are modified and changed by the
exrericr.ee of time and the lights of
knowledge." But far from "irrevocably"
fixing the ttatus of a Territory, the
Slavery Prohibitory Bill.
, The Bill prrhibiting Slavery in the ter
nary cf Nebraska, passed the House,
with seme crnendment3, on the 3d, by tho
fc!'. iving vote :
Ayes 3.iin, ILker, Bo wen, Bur! ink.
Campbell, Collier, Crowe, Davis, Ilan:

Myers, Rogers, Reck, Stevenson, L.w

son, Keeling, Kennedy Malcolm, Noel,
Nuckolls of btoe, Nuckolls of Richard
ardson; Reynolds, Shields, Tufft, 17.! :
Absent Bates and McCasland.
On the same day the bill went to the Coun
cil, end the amendments were concurred
in. The vote stood as follows :
Ayes Boykin, Cheever, Doane, Dun
dy, Furnas, Porter and Reeves 7. '
Nays Collier, Little and Scott 3.
The bill reads as follows:
Whereas. Some of cur citizens seem
to fear that Slavery or involuntary servi
tude may be a fruitful source cf discord
an! disunion in the Territory, and in or
der that we may not have any further
agitation upon this unpleasant subject and
that the same may be rorever settled,

punishment of crime, be, and the same is
the very simple and very plausible reason
that the question was net before that
body for adjudication.
Such a perversion of facts, and such a
doctrine, coming from a Democratic Pre
sident, would be perfectly unaccountable
without lijrht thrown on the antecedents
of Mr. Buchanan, and the motives which
prompted him to utter sentiments so con
trary to the popular sovereignty principle
to which he owes his election. ' The Cle
veland Plaindcalcr says:
"Mr. Buchanan has undertaken to de
cide by his ipse dixit a question which the
Supreme Lcurt has not decided, and to
forever prohibited in this Territory.
w ... .
Sec 2. This act shall take enect and
be in force from and after the first day
of July, 1SC0. .
As the above bill passed both branches
cf the Legislature after the Message of
the President had been received at Oma
ha, the prompt action of the Represent
atives of the people cannot be considered
otherwise than as a rebuke to, and a re
pudiation of, the "new and dangerous
doctrine" enunciated by Mr. Buchanan.
It shows that the Democratic party in
this Territory, are, not disposed to sub-
dictate the Democratic party what it shall mit tamely to the 'dictates of any man,
do at the Charleston Convention in refer
ence to the slavery question. Mr. Buch
anan will find out that he is not yet king
of this country nor dictator to the Demo
cratic party. His opinions in regard to
political matters are cf very little account.'
He is often and most grossly mistaken in
regard to what constitutes Democracy,
and his reading of party platforms and
court decisions amazingly defective. He
commenced life a Federalist. All his

The Leavenworth Herald of the Gth
inst. says : The Denver City Express ar
rived yesterday, seven days out from Den
ver, and brought S22:000 in -gold. Mr.
had no right to institute a suit in our
tional courts; and the opinions indirectly
expressed by the court, or by the different
members of it in the case, have no legal
.and binding authority. The doctrine
laid lown by the President in his Mes
fnge, being divested of the mantle of
sanctity he would cover it with a decision
of the Supreme Court, rests then on its
. merits or rather demerits alone; and
it nover will be indorsed by the people of
the North. His opinions that slavery ex
ist mall the Territories by virtue of the
Constitution; that although the people of
a Territory were unanimous in their de
sire to prohibit slavery, they could not do
it; that Congress and the people of the
Territories through the Territorial Le
gislature have the power to protect but
not to prohibit slavery ; that no human
yoirer can stop its extension ; are Views
which the Democratic party in the great
Northwest are not vet. and likely will
never be, prepared to adopt.
The closing remark that such a princi-
pie is "well calculated to promote peace
and harmony," is another cool assurop
. tion. If slavery exists in the Territories
under the Federal Constitution, it is the
. duty of Congress to pass laws for its pro
tection, the Territorial Legulature fail
ing to do it. Then, instead of being
localized, the slavery question becomes a
subject cf national politics; "the agitation
would thus be rendered incessant;" ma
terial would be afforded "to keep alive a
dangerous excitement among the people
of the several States;" and sectional
strife and struggles, which would con-
.vulse the country, would be the result.
The only way to have peace and harmony
is to adhere to the doctrine of Congres
sional non-intervention, and let the peo-
