Speech of Senator Douglas, on the occasion of his public reception at Chicago, Friday evening, July 9th, 1858. (Mr. Lincoln was present.) Mr. Douglas said: Mr. Chairman and Fellow-citizens — I can find no language which can adequately express my profound gratitude for the magnificent welcome which you have extended to me oes of that year, when I returned to my home, there was great dissatisfaction expressed at my course in supporting those measures. I appeared before the people of Chicago at a mass meeting an vindicated each and every one of those measures ; and by reference to my speech on that occasion, which was printed and circulated broad-cast this last winter it became my duty to vindicate it against assaults from the other section of the Union. I vindicated it boldly and fearlessly, as the people of Chicago can bear witness, when it was assailed by Freesoilers; and during this winter I vindicated and defended it as boldly and fearlessly when it was attempted to be vi
Speech of Hon. Abraham Lincoln, in reply to Senator Douglas: delivered at Chicago Saturday evening, July 10, 1858. (Mr. Douglas was not present.) Mr. Lincoln was introduced by C. L. Wilson, Esq., and as he made his appearance he was greeted with a perfect storm of applause. For some moments the enthusiasm continued unabated. At last, when by a wave of his hand partial silence was restored, Mr. Lincoln said: My Fellow Citizens: On yesterday evening, upon the occasion of the reception given to Senator Douglas, I was furnished with a seat very convenient for hearing him, and was otherwise very courteously treated by him and his friends, and for which I thank him and them. During the course of his remarks my name was mentioned in such a way as, I suppose, renders it at least not improper that I should make some sort of reply to him. I shall not attempt to follow him in the precise order in which he addressed the assembled multitude upon that occasion, though I shall perhaps
domestic institutions of the Southern States, and to prosecute that war until they shall all be subdued, and made to conform to such rules as the North shall dictate to them. I am aware that Mr. Lincoln, on Saturday night last, made a speech at Chicago for the purpose, as he said, of explaining his position on this question. I have read that speech with great care, and will do him the justice to say that it is marked by eminent ability and great success in concealing what he did mean to say ierfere, and render themselves responsible for the consequences. Oh no! They stand on this side of the Ohio river and shoot across. They stand in Bloomington, and shake their fists at the people of Lexington ; they threaten South Carolina from Chicago. And they call that bravery! But they are very particular, as Mr. Lincoln says, not to enter into those States for the purpose of interfering with the institution of slavery there. I am not only opposed to entering into the slave States, for

were firmly and fairly carried out. Those compromise measures rested, as I said in my speech at Chicago, on my return home that year, upon the principle that every people ought to have the right to fll over the country in 1854 when that Nebraska bill passed. I could then travel from Boston to Chicago by the light of my own effigies, in consequence of having stood up for it. I leave it to you ton Mr. Lincoln to explain what he did mean, if he did not mean this, and he may made a speech at Chicago, in which he attempts to explain. And how does he explain? I will give him the benefit of hisct. How are they going to make that reversal effectual? Why, Mr. Lincoln tells us in his late Chicago speech. He explains it as clear as light. He says to the people of Illinois that if you electgue that the language all men included the negroes, Indians, and all inferior races. In his Chicago speech he says, in so many words, that it includes the negroes, that they were endowed by the A

Doubtless, he repeated it again to-clay, though I se and an expectation? I have often expressed an expectation to die, but I have never expressed a wish to die. I said at Chicago, and now repeat; that I am quite aware this Government has endured, half slave and half free, for eighty-two years. I un expressed the opinion I did, because I perceived-or thought I perceived — a new set of causes introduced. I did say at Chicago, in my speech there, that I do wish to see the spread of slavery arrested, and to see it placed where the public mind shesisting it as a political rule, I disturb no right of property, create no disorder excite no mobs. When he spoke at Chicago, on Friday evening of last week, he made this same point upon me. On Saturday evening I replied, and reminded him of a S

en the two rival candidates for the United States Senate: Mr. Lincoln to Mr. Douglas. Chicago, Ill., July 24, 1858. Hon. S. A. Douglas-My Dear Sir: Will it be agreeable to you to make an ars of such arrangement. Your obedient servant, A. Lincoln. Mr. Douglas to Mr. Lincoln. Chicago July 24, 1858. Hon. A. Lincoln--Dear Sir: Your note of this date, in which you inquire if ityou should have waited until after I had made my appointments, inasmuch as we were both here in Chicago together for several days after my arrival, and again at Blooming ton, Atlanta, Lincoln and Sprction, largely over two months of clear time. For you to say that we have already spoken at Chicago and Springfield and that on both occasions I had the concluding speech is hardly a fair statement. The truth rather is this: At Chicago, July 9th, you made a carefully-prepared conclusion on my speech of June 16th. Twenty-four hours after, I made a hasty conclusion on yours of the 9th. You h

d to their respective places, and not a piece too many or too few — not omitting even the scaffolding-or if a single piece be lacking, we see the place, in the frame exactly fitted and prepared yet to bring such piece in — in such a case we feel it impossible not to believe that Stephen and Franklin, and Roger and James, all understood one another from the beginning, and all worked upon a common plan or draft drawn before the first blow was struck. When my friend, Judge Douglas, came to Chicago, on the 9th of July, this speech having been delivered on the 16th of June, he made an harangue there, in which he took hold of this speech of mine, showing that be had carefully read it ; and while be paid no attention to this matter at all, but complimented me as being a kind, amiable and intelligent gentleman, notwithstanding I had said this, he goes on and eliminates, or draws out, from my speech this tendency of mine to set the States at war with one another to make all the institutio

Reynolds, of Belleville, Sidney Breese, of Carlisle, and John Dougherty,than to talk about the inexpediency of the Nebraska bill, whilst his allies at Chicago, advocated negro citizenship and negro equality, putting the white man and theame terms in Kentucky that I declared in Illinois, in Charleston as well as in Chicago, in New Orleans as well as in New York. So long as we live under a Constitutitform, I denounced him, and declared that he was no Democrat. In my speech at Chicago, just before the election that year, I went before the infuriated people of thtance from the execution of the laws, and as I was the only man in the city of Chicago who was responsible for the passage of the Compromise Measures, I went before ne of those measures, and let it be said to the eternal honor of the people of Chicago, that when they were convinced by my exposition of those measures that they we

s in the month of August, he made a speech at Chicago, in which he made what may be called a chargeupon Judge Trumbull is, that when he spoke in Chicago he made his charge to rest upon the fact thatast, the first thing he did when he landed at Chicago was to make a speech wholly devoted to assaulort of his charge since he made his speech in Chicago. Let us see. The Chicago Times took up Trumb candidates. When I commenced the canvass at Chicago, I spoke of Mr. Lincoln in terms of kindness ass's friends. I witnessed an effort made at Chicago by Lincoln's then associates, and now support he knew it to be false when he uttered it at Chicago ; and yet he says he is going to cram the liecape it, the truth of every word I uttered at Chicago. You, fellow-citizens, are the judges to detches and establishes forever all I charged at Chicago, and more too? I propose now to furnish tll read them, as made by Mr. Trumbull, in his Chicago speech, in his own language. He says: [9 more...]

to believe that the same man ever uttered both. In a speech in reply to me at Chicago in July last, Mr. Lincoln, in speaking of the equality of the negro with the wy or change them a hair's breadth in order to get votes. I tell you that this Chicago doctrine of Lincoln's — declaring that the negro and the white man are made eqand read north and south. I knew all the while that the speech that I made at Chicago, and the one I made at Jonesboro and the one at Charleston, would all be put it the truth of any doctrine? Why, I understood that at one time the people of Chicago would not let Judge Douglas preach a certain favorite doctrine of his. I commend another for Charleston. He does not pretend that I hold to one doctrine in Chicago and an opposite one in Jonesboro. I have proved that lie has a different set ual. [ We believe it. ] Very well. Mr. Lincoln assorts to-day as he did at Chicago, that the negro was included in that clause of the Declaration of Independence
