I would -.readily waive all objections of regard to personal - feelings, or to my own convenience, and promptly 'laying aside all other things,' submit myself, .as a private citizen might well do, to the mter- rogatories ; which have been , ordered to be pro- " ; pounded to roe, ' by the President of the Society and the Secretary of this meeting.' ; To be sure, . the mode of catechism is somewhat more peremp .tory than usual, and might be deemed .scarcely . . more decorous than it is respectful. Yet to this I .should take no exeptions, if it involved alone my own , sense of what is due to personal . intercourse, in the private relations in which stand , to others, my fellow townsmen and neighbors. . i. My, name is before the citizens of this district, . as a candidate for their suffrages, not .through t any agency of my own, but by the unsolicited .favor of their constituted agents. .. The Conven- . lion which favored me with the nominaln, was - composed of delegates from the politic! arty with whose sentiments and views of puoac pof- , icy my official conduct, hitherto, has been identified, and to whom' I owe the responsibility ; which the expression of their confidence irripos--. es. ...They proposed no interrogatories to be an-t s we red as a precedent . condition to nomination, , , but. from : satisfaction with the past, and having , : trust in faith fu'ne for the fa tn re, placed me in the canvass Cor the pending election... I am not apprized, that the members of the Anti-Slavery ; Society, VVhis as most of them are, were excluded from th vr-onvention, or that there or else- -where, iSevr hiv heti precluded the opportuni- -: ty of objecting it the nomination.

Measures of legislation are, or ought to be, the.result of profound reflection, of free and full discussion, of thoughtful reference to 'the condition of the country, the. constitution of government, and. the" will of the" people ; and j the Representative, who, regardless of what these may require, will, beforehand, bind himself by pledges, as the price of election, to a precise manner of action, degrades himself to the service of a machine, and is in spirit a slave !

At an early, period,! was a peti-, tioner to Congress for the abolition of shi very yi-the District of: .Columbia .. AfterwardyLwa,'! among the first to join ,in forming an Anti-SU-very Society in. this. place.., .. Of that society I still continue to be a memberj aud have annaf ally contributed to its , funds. , ... My: course. in ' Cpnsfress is matter of public recordand therefore I need not. refer to it. . Having been; thus connected . from almost the, origin of tLe, AntM Slavery movements in.this country, my .vietvi "gjn trfe-4hot . of -L very . generally may readily, mlerred. .. . , . .. . - '. : ; .1 view slavery as an evil of vast magnitude, . both moral and political, and one that ought immediately to be removed. I can conceive of no greater wrong in human society, than, for one man to trample upon , the rights of another, as the' slaveholder does upon the rights of the slave. Is the slave a man ; and has he no . rights '? , If he has rights, what are they ? It seems to me there should be some point on which we should -all be on.5 "V-some rights which all should equall it if a man is not 'allowed the right 'c, "Qtrolling his own person, and the effects' s'own labor,j(provided by doing so he does not infringe upon the rights of others,) I knowf-Vwhere this point, or these equal rights, are .to i found.. To me too, there is something aKirreiit in the. idea that one man has a right to bold another iti bondage, and to convert to his own use the"produets of his labor without making him fair compensation therefor. , It seems . to me that thejirinciple strikes at the very root of republicanism- and in the professions of the man who pretends to hold to equal privileges, and still upholds the system of slavery, I must say I have but littl confidence. ' My views in spn to the duty of Congress in reference to wery in the District of Columbia, may readily inferred from the fore- ' Th ' fish't to grant, A. ,,. ', The man who would petition ' Inch he be he ved they had or that they ought not to f would, to say the least of it, be triflinsr ' viln-ihe right of petition. Such was not my yfew when a petitioner. 1 believed then, and believe .now, that; Congress has the right to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia, and that the right ought to be exercised, and all the votes which I bve given when the question has been involved, since I have had j the honor . of a seat in that body, go to show, that I am sincere in that leiief.' That I may not have -been as zealous inif prosecuting the subject as . some, others, I admit., I probably do not prose- cute any subject with, as much zeal as some -others do. -It. is not in accordance- with my , temperamYtoJdo so. ' But "that I. have not -been firm aM. steadfast in my purpose, ! chal- . Ije a deiQs'nd w hile upon this ' sul ject I is always, those., who ; manifest the most zeal that accomplish the most., I have been led to this course of remark, for-.-eign I know to the su"bject of this'' comtnuhica- tion, from the fact that J am. cfiarged by those whom I have every reason to betieve are honest Abolitionists, with an .indifference upon' this qustion. There are mari at this day that 'cr aloud,' who in the.,infancy of Hie can?e"were not ' knovvn, -or if they twere , known, kept themselves entirely aloof from those, who - weres en- !Pffpd ifflf it. l' ''' ' ' '' -J'5 (" lii 'vi'l .,t Upon(t,he powersand duty of Congress irt re-i lation at the inter-jtate slave irae. therejs niore doubt; and Alus point I, perceiye lias generally" r leen evaded -by tho&ewlo have beeo. question-' ed upon the subject: Congress; however, hostile power to regulate commerce ; and the only h question is, whether by, a. power to -regtilate-may le inferred. a. power ionbolishJ lf such an -' inference may rbc drawhj, the 'power Js" plainly. m congress; ana tne same reasons wnicn urge; the abolition of Slavery' in the District of Co-- lumbia, apply with vastly more force to theabol-"' ishing ol this internal trade, r My own opinion U, that to infer the power,1' would be giving a - very brod construction to tlie words of the constitution ; but in this case, as in all others where human rights are 'to be restored, I should be disposed to take the most liberal view. It would however seem to be an anomaly,-that government should recognize the holding of a species of property which it would not allow to bo sold.! Upon the subject ol this right, 1 cannot be v posttTye as uperi that of abofishlrtgSlayety the District bf-Columbia, op the right to 'refuse the admission of new1 slave SSatea.'4 The sV ject is how undergoing a" course 'of- discusaiia.
