Massachusetts. I know that free speech, free toil, school-houses and ballot-boxes are a pyramid on its broadest base. Nothing that does not sunder the solid globe can disturb it. We defy the world to disturb us. (Cheers.) The little errors that dwell upon our surface, we have medicine in our institutions to cure them all. (Applause.) Therefore there is nothing left for a New-England man, nothing but that he shall wipe away the stain that hangs about the toleration of human bondage. As Webster said at Rochester, years and years ago, If I thought that there was a stain upon the remotest hem of the garment of my country, I would devote my utmost labor to wipe it off. (Cheers.) To-day that call is made upon Massachusetts. That is the reason why I dwell so much on the slavery question. I said I believed in the power of the North to conquer; but where does she get it? I do not believe in the power of the North to subdue two million and a half of Southern men, unless she summons ju

at this late hour, nor would it be appropriate to the occasion to do so; but I believe it to be as demonstrable as any proposition of Euclid, that this doctrine of secession, that is, the constitutional right of a State to sever at will her connection with the Union, is, if possible, still more unfounded, still more fallacious, than that of its ill-omened and now universally discredited predecessor, Nullification, which was crushed, never to rise again, thirty years ago, by the iron mace of Webster, in the Senate of the United States. I will only say at present, that this monstrous pretended right of secession, though called a reserved right, is notoriously nowhere expressly reserved in the Constitution, although every one feels that nothing but an express reservation, in the plainest terms, would be a sufficient ground for claiming such a stupendous power. What is maintained by the politicians of the secession school is, that the right may be inferred from one of the amendments t
an in the mere sanction of delegated authority. The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of the consent of the people. Certainly, the most venerated expounders of the Constitution — Jay, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent, Story, Webster — were of opinion that the intention of the convention to establish a permanent, consolidated Government, a single commonwealth, had been completely successful. The great and fundamental defect of the Confederation of 1781, (says Chancellor Kd such imaginary rights, we should violate the first principles of our political organization, should fly in the face of our history, should trample under foot the teachings of Jay, Hamilton, Washington, Marshall, Madison, Dane, Kent, Story, and Webster, and, accepting only the dogmas of Mr. Calhoun as infallible, surrender forever our national laws and our national existence. Englishmen themselves live in a united empire; but if the kingdom of Scotland should secede, should seize all the na
es. Nothing has occurred to warrant or justify the change in our Government proposed by the ordinances of our Convention. Adopting the language of our fellow-citizens of the county of Berkeley, at their late mass meeting, we can truthfully declare: That we have never yet agreed to break our allegiance to that Constitution which was signed by George Washington, framed by James Madison, administered by Jefferson, judicially expounded by John Marshall, protected by Jackson, defended by Webster, and lived for by Clay. That we have never known Virginia save as a State in the United States; and all our feelings of State pride are indelibly associated with her, as a bright star in the constellation of a glorious and united country. That we have lived happily under the great Government of the United States, and if that Government has oppressed us by any of its acts, legislative, executive, or judicial, during its existence, we do not know it. Such, we are well persuaded, mus

I only undertake to report the particulars of that part of the expedition under my immediate command, and which marched upon Philippi by way of Webster and the bridge. I speak of the part of the expedition commanded by Colonels Kelly, Milroy and Irvine, only because Colonel Kelly's condition is such as to render a report from him impossible. In doing so, I may have made some mistakes, but notoriety. Col. Kelly's division moved east by railroad to Thornton, a small way station, five miles distant from here. Thence they marched to Philippi, a distance of twenty-two miles. The Indiana Regiment moved out the N. W. Virginia Railroad to Webster, where they were joined by the Ohio 14th, from which place they pushed forward on foot to Philippi, twelve miles distant. The march of the two divisions was performed last night, through darkness, rain, and mud. It was a terrible undertaking,
eing the evil it has assisted to bring forth, denounced it as that monster, state sovereignty. Webster and Jackson successively demolished it, and the argument now insolently advanced by leaders of r acts of secession has been purposely, systematically, and practically denied. There is, said Webster — and his words were never before so fearfully illustrated--no usurpation so dangerous as that Rhett frankly declared that he regarded the fugitive slave law as unconstitutional, and that Mr. Webster and Mr. Keitt had expressed the same opinion. You have seen, too, from Mr. Stephens, that ent on God's earth that secret treachery may not enfeeble or temporarily overthrow. If, said Webster, those appointed to de. fend the castle shall betray it, woe betide those within. Let us hope,eferences, had consented to preside over a depleted treasury, renewed the miracle attributed by Webster to Alexander Hamilton: He smote the rock of the national resources, and abundant streams of rev
