Mr. Stanly said : There, sir 1; so
the gentlwaan from Tennesee. Now
I call on him to bring the. leader frbro iKin

another old Federalist who will not vote to
reject these abolition petitions ; yetbe gen

his' argument, prove all who voted to receive
these petitions were desirous to- bring the

tletnan tell me what sort of a flag
centieman irom iew tjamosmre raise r is
it the white flag of peace ? Is it the gfori
ous star:spangled banner, under tvhicli he
would have us assemble to deliberate free
frojm party excitement, for the promotion of
Ihe good of the whole country?! INosir ;
noi If it is not a black flag, it s wrse ;
it 9 ringed, streaked, 6j?eckled, and white
washed, looking fair in tho distance but,
upon examination, dark, unsatisfactory; no
two can agree what color it bears a prop
er flag for thoso who concocted! tbe insin
cere, hypocritical resolutions of th!e last ses
sion.- Thank Heaven I can now! .speak of
. ! . 1 . . . . !.;T - ;!5 .
inose resolutions as j wished to sneak at
th last session ; the opportunity was lint
formly denied me then, when your prde
cessor was in the chair. He never hesita
ted to do whatever his party required. A
more complete slave never served a deVpot.
I Can nrw denounce these pitiful ifsolutions
onf this floor as I denounced Uhehi at home,
wjthont being told by the toil pflai caucus
tojtake ray seat. : H .
The! gentleman from Tennrssele tfjlls us
that the Lieut. Governor of NeW York is
an abolitionis'. If he is, hp ran nearly two
thousand votes behind his ticket in the! city
oil New York. In that city, wb!ich:f gives
nearly forty thousand votes, the ;abohtion-
sts themselves claim but fifteen hu
here. - There is no disguise, no double-dealing,
no non-committal. When fie; was ques
tioned by the. abolitionists as tojthe power
of Congress over slavery in this District he
told them 'be deemed any interference with
the subject of ; slavery in the District of Co
lumbia Jnexpedtent and anwarrantable'Re
abhorred and spurns?! the idea t of turning
this subject to politicltl,account.i Yet sir,
after tins manly declaration, he j received a
majority greater by fifteen v hundred Totes
than he first had when he wasj a candidate.
And yet this gentleman is a Whig Abolition
ist! His competitor did not answer the in- j
quiries aaaresseo to pirn non-commiuai
Mr. Speaksr, I wisl, as nearl
vble, to follow the gentleman ftotn
in his course of argument. After leaving
Pennsylvania, he jumped to Vermont. Well
sir, how stands jhe case there j? I There 11
one member from Velmont on thts floor, an'
open and notorious abolitionist, (51 r.Slade )
So well known is he ps an abolitionist that
some persons belonging to thjVan Buren
party have heretofore barged with being
an abolitionist, because I voted jwitb htm on
a motion to adjourn, or on somequestionlof
ordei ! i From such evidence as this, Extra
Globes and thousands of Van Buren papers
were distributed in ny district Ho prove I
was an abolitionist ! But. sir, in the district
represented by this mmber the; Van Buren
abolitionists had a contention, and the Sec
retary of the Anti-Sfavery Society, Ei t.

Another a Mr. Smith, (I do not know that

No principle at Btakenosuggestiort that
the rights of the South might be sacrificed
by the action of Congress but it Was a
mere question of expediency. Yes,' sir,
miserable, unprincipled; selfish expediency,
which influenced his conduct. The object
of the petitioners could: not then be granted,
bbt hereafter . may be expedient to gratify
the wishes of his constituents! j
if Here, sir, we have the recorded opinions
of a prominent member of the party to which
tbe gentleman from Tennessee belongs Tl.is
gentleman of expedieocy voted Ifor the
Atherton resolutions with us of the South.
I? put it to the candor of the gentleman from
Tennessee, will he trust tho rights of hi
constituents to such . bands ! Could the
friendship of such a man be relied upon in
an hour of trial ?. , ? T ; j

courteous gentleman from Tennessee re
ferred to the venerable gentleman from
AJas3achu setts as 'deranged Hebasilnot
yet read, 1 presume, the letters written by
that gentleman, published in tha National
htelligencer, on the subject of abolition. If
he can find such patriotic derangement in
any supporter of this Administration, I shall
be happy to see it. The gentleman from
Tennessee will find out, before tbe end of
the session, that be is mistaken in his bpin-

': But. sir, I shall not bestow any panegyr

Once before, from tbe impulse of feclinT, I
was induced to do so. and I was accused of
favoring abolition. The abolitionists in
that gentleman'a district are not 'deranged"
