Excerpt from The Campaign of 1860: Comprising the Speeches of Abraham Lincoln, William H. Seward, Henry Wilson, Benjamin F. Wade, Carl Schurz, Charles Sumner, William M. Evarts, &C

For my part I do not see anything unjust or unreasonable in the declaration often made by Southern members on this subject. They tell us: If you will thus assail us with incen diary pamphlets, if you will thus create a spirit in your country which leads to violence and bloodshed among us, if you will assail the ih stitution upon which the prosperity of our country depends, and will elevate to office over us men who are pledged to aid in such transactions, and to Oppress us by hostile legis lation, we cannot - much as we revere the Constitution, greatly as we estimate the bless ings which would flow from its faithful en forcement - we cannot longer depend on your compliance with its injunctions, or adhere to the Union. For my part, gentlemen, if the North continues to conduct itself in the selec tion of representatives to the Congress of the United States as, from, perhaps, a certain de gree of negligence and inattention, it has here tofore conducted itself, the South is not to be censured if it withdraws from the Union. (hisses and applause. A voice that's so. Three cheers for the Fugitive Slave Law.) We are not, gentlemen, to hold a meeting to say that We love this Union; we delight in it; we are proud of it; it blesses us, and we enjoy it; but we shall fill all its offices with men of our own choosing, and, our brethren of the South, you shall enjoy its glorious past; you shall enjoy its mighty recollections; but it shall trample your institutions in the dust. We have no right to say it. We have no right to exact so much; and an opposite and entire ly different course, fellow-citizens, must be ours - must be the course of the great North, if we would preserve this Union. (applause, and cries of Good)
