Excerpt from Selections From the Speeches and Writings of Prominent Men in the United States, on the Subject of Abolition and Agitation: And in Favor of the Compromise Measures of the Last Session of Congress, Addressed to the People of the State of New-York

Fellow-Citizens of the State of New-York:

By a resolution of the Union Safety Committee, the undersigned were appointed a Special Committee to disseminate Union sentiments through this State, by means of the public press and the circulation of public documents.

We accordingly ask leave, respectfully, but earnestly, to invite your attention to the sentiments and views, the arguments and advice contained in the following extracts from the speeches and writings of some of the leading public men and prominent citizens of our country, without distinction of party, on the all-important subject that has so long occupied the public mind.

You will find, in this summary, allusions to important facts which may have escaped attention. You will read the legal opinions of eminent professional men; and you will perceive the apprehension and anxiety entertained by statesmen long trained in the councils of the nation: nor has it been thought inappropriate to add a voice from the pulpit.

The dangerous excitement upon the subject of Slavery, which fanaticism originated, and which a species of infatuation has extended far and wide, still threatens the peace and safety of our Union.

To such an alarming extent have misrepresentation and delusion spread throughout our land, that the fraternal ties which link together our happy confederacy appear no longer to possess their magic charm to maintain the constitution in its integrity, and uphold the union of these States. We know that the great body of the people in every State are devotedly attached to the Union; yet we cannot close our eyes to the fact, that the people of our State have permitted their honest judgment to be misled and their generous sympathies to become enlisted, by specious appeals to their feelings against the system of Slavery that has existed in the Southern States since the formation of our government.
