As to the principle, all were agreed.

I commented on it as wonderful that Judge Douglas could be ignorant of these facts, which ev singular if Mr. Clay cast his mantle upon Judge Douglas on purpose to have that compromise repealeits glory.

Judge Douglas cannot show that either of us ever did havy, I have the means of knowing about that; Judge Douglas cannot have; and I know there is no substathe latter. I have reason to know that Judge Douglas knows that I said this, I think he has theand earns, he is my equal and the equal of Judge Douglas, and the equal of every living man. Noss the word State had in that connection. Judge Douglas knows. He put it there. He knows what he pd that other, and it should turn out to be Judge Douglas himself who made it, I hope he will reconsrt he has thought fit to ascribe to me.

Judge Douglas did not make his statement upon that occasa good thing, and I really find nothing in Judge Douglas's course or arguments that is contrary to ar for it. After pointing this out, I tell Judge Douglas that it looks to me as though here was thenot appear in the ayes and noes. But does Judge Douglas reply amount to a satisfactory answer?

ti-slavery contest was a thing inevitable,--an irrepressible conflict between opposing and enduring forces, --and that the United States must and would sooner or later become entirely a slave-holding nation or entirely a free labor nation. Either, Seward said, the plantations of the South must ultimately be tilled by free men, or the farms of Massachusetts and New York must be surrendered to the rearing of slaves; there could be no middle ground. Lincoln had said, in the controversy with Douglas, A house divided against itself cannot stand. In view of these suggestions, some of us were for accepting the situation, after our fashion, and found ourselves imitating that first mate of a vessel, who, seeing her to be in danger, and being bidden by his captain to go forward and attend to his own part of the ship, came aft again presently, touched his cap, and said, Captain--, my part of the ship is at anchor. It was doubtless well that the march of events proved too strong for us, and
