Now, the same getitinan says, amidst hll the superad ded.dangers of. the present period, "I have made no slavery speeches in Con gress and do not mean to make them. Property is timid: and slave property above all. It is not right to disturb the qietude of the owner, to harass him with groundless apprehensions. It is a private wrong to disturb a single individual by making him believe, un truly, that his property is insecure. It becomes a public evil to disturb a whole community. It creates a general un easiness, generates animosities, deran ges business, and often leads to hasty and improvident legislation." How charmingly philosophical!
