Excerpt from Facts and Arguments Against the Election of General Cass, Respectfully Addressed to the Whigs and Democrats of All the Free States

About the wrong of slavery in the abstract, I will waste no argument; it being a subject on which, in this age of light, the enlightened and disinterested cannot disagree. I urge nothing against the rights over slavery retained by the Old Thirteen States, and by Kentucky and Texas; rights which, however condemned by reason and Revelation, and by all human experience, and however improperly extorted by some of those States, and unwisely yielded by the rest, are securely anchored by the Federal Constitution. But because unhallowed cupidity has covered too much by Constitutional compromises, and because timidity or temporary interests have permitted their extension far beyond their original ground, the South must not be permitted to extend them indefinitely, and thus make the Union an instrument of evil. A government established for the protection of human rights, must not be perverted to hewing them down. Slavery, which never should have been carried beyond the original Thirteen States, and even there should have been loaded with burdens insuring its speedy extinction, must not be made by the South, the weakest portion of the Confederacy, the chief purpose of the Federal Government, a great National object of perpetuation and extension. For the Free States, union on such terms would be criminal. Nor must the South be permitted to dictate all the National policy, to control the National Government, to make all the National interests subservient to its own, and to regard the North, Middle, and West, a great majority of the Confederacy, as united with it for the sole purpose of executing its decrees. To the Free States, union on such terms would be degrading.

In thus interfering with Presidential elections, I am no man's man; no man's champion, no man's assailant; have no personal end to promote, no friendships or animosities to gratify. My sole object is the exclusion of slavery from another square mile of territory. In pursuit of this object, I appeal to all men of the Free States, "Whigs," "Democrats," "Abolitionists," all, without partisan distinction; and I make the appeal as neither "Whig," "Democrat," "Barn, burner," nor "Hunker," but solely as an American citizen, free from local or partisan prejudices, and seeking the permanent honor and prosperity of our Country, and our whole Country.
