"If there be a curse in the practical
politics of this country, and one which
more than any other inflates the Execu

legislation. The initiative, the great pub

by the President, and the Veto has been
so regularly applied when the President's
personal opinions were against theaction
of Congress, that it would reallyseem
that the President had grown to be ex-
otficio member of Congress, with the ad
ditional advantage of having U casting
vole upon all questions where a Imajority
was less than two-thirds. So faj has this
iniquitous perversion of the Constitution
been carried, that a member of Congress
under the Tyler administration, we think
a Massachusetts man, had the ejffrontery
to declare the President to be a co-ordinate
branch of the legislative body. Cer

U. S. SENATE.
Washington, June 27, 1848.
On motion of Mr. Bright, the Senate
then resumed the consideration of the
Oregon Territorial Bill. Mr. B. made a
few remarks, stating his reasons for mo
ving to strike out the 12th section, and his
motivesj for withdrawing that motion.
But the Senator from Georgia, (Mr. Ber
rien,) had renewed the motion, and it had
been followed by the Senator from Missis
sippi with an amendment, involving in its
discussion the most Serious consequences
to the Union. Under these circumstan
ces he would present a paper, which he
proposed to offer at the proper time as an parlners with the restf having contrib
amendment on his own responsibility, and their share in money and in iives lo
which he believed would satisty the great

iThe true and real distinction! between
a Whig .and a Tory is in this difference
on Vetoes, Prerogatives, Royalties, and
whenever even the Loco Focoswill pro
perly study the Constitution, those among
them not tories, but who are true demo
crats, will agree with us, that the Gov
ernment is in the People, or what is the
same thing, the Reprsentatives of the Peo
ple, and not in one man, elected by the
machinery of National Conventions, and
elected by the machinery of Electoral Col
leges. ; .
True then, as the Union sets forth in its
word ' Revolution," we Whigs, under
General Taylor are intending ai Revolu
tion of the practices of the Executive since
1829 up to 1848. To have this j Revolu
tion" is the very purpose for which we
support General layior. We demand
improvements for Harbors) and Rivers,
ahd, by " a Revolution" in the Veto Pow
er, we mean to have them. We demand
that, in matters of Finance, and of Pro
tection, Congress be the Government, and
not the Executive, and by "a Revolution,"
we mean to so order it. We demand that
the Executive Power be curtailed in ma
ny and various ways, and by a Revo
lution," we mean to perfect it. General
Taylor is to revolutionize tins Government
from the track on which it has run down
body of the American people there were
some whom nothing would satisfy. It
was substantially the Missouri Compro
mise providing that in all territory north
ot 36 30, to the Pacific ocean, embracing
New Mexico, California, and other new
territories acquired, neither slavery nor
involuntary servitude, except for crime
shall be permitted, providing that slaves
escaping into such terrritory shall be sur
rendered to their owners.
After a few remarks Mr. Berrien, ex
planatory of his view in renewing the
motion to strike out the 12ih section,
Mr. Calhoun addressed the Senate.
The South desired the enactment of no
laws to give them any peculiar advanta
ges. They simply desire that the territo
ries, shall be left open to all, while they
remain territories and when they come
into the Union that they shall be left to
make their own laws, with no farther re
strictions imposed upon them than are
provided by the Constitution.
On the great question whether the non
slaveholding States have the powers to
prohibit slavery in thejterritories, he should
claim for the south nothing to which they
were not clearly entitled, and yield no
right guaranted to them by the Constitu
tion. He stood here unconnected writh party
considerations, and should examine the
question solely with a view to what he
considered the true interests of the coun
try. He contended that the constitution ne
ver intended that their should be any dis
contemplated. They are mere trustees
for the benefit of the United States, with
out the authority or right to make a dis
crimination, in reference to that trust be
tween the citizens of the slaveholding and
non slave-holding States.
Neither have the territories that power.
All the arguments which he had used in
reference to the powers of Congress, he
contended, applied with equal force to the
territories. Neither Congress nor the ter
ritories have the power to exclude slavery.
Nor is there any power in the laws ex
isting in the territories, when so acquired,
to exclude it. No power, in any form or
shape, exists by which it can be excluded.
1 he slaveholding States, he said, are
money and in lives lo the
acquisition, and could not be excluded
from an equal participation in the bene
fits. They have been full contributors,
under every aspect of the case, and who
could stand up, and in transaction un
der similar circumstances, in private life,
say that they were not entitled to be full
participants ? Nothing but deed, abiding
prejudice could insist on the contrary.
It the non-slaveholdingStates were dis
posed to do right, let them vote for the
amendment of his friend, (Mr. Jefferson
Davis.) And to the slaveholding States
he would say, if they were prepared to
concede this right they had greatly de
This is a time, he said, when the coun
try feels that great movements are in ag
itation which may burst asunder the ties
of the Union and that this is the time
for a settlement. In the language of
Mr. Jefferson, he was in favor of leaving
the question to the Constitution.
And if left to the Constitution, it would
be settled very nearly by the line of 3G
to 30 the existence of slavery would va
ry very little from that line. It was near
ly impossible that it should be otherwise.
And he trusted the time never would come
when there should be a white man at the
South to perform manual labor.
He then proceeded, in an ingenious ar
gument, to prove that all men are not
born "free and equal" that there is not
one word of truth in that declaration "All
men are born," it is declared ; but ien are
