Excerpt from An Oration Pronounced at Boston Before the Colonization Society of Massachusetts, on the Anniversary of American Independence, July 4, 1833

North to stir up their slaves to insurrection To think of induc ing them to abolish the slave-system, by such language as I allude to, and as I not seldom see or hear used for that purpose, - hylan guage of menace, dictation, reproach, and general obloquy, - is mere infatuation.

Practically speaking, therefore, and leaving alone the decision of various abstract questions, and curious points of religious or moral doctrine, which have somewhat unseasonably been mixed up in this controversy, - setting these apart, the considerations, which I have thus brie y suggested, exhibit, as I understand it, the line of discrimination between the policy of the Colonization Society and that of the anti-slavery Society, touching the great question ofabo lition. We, who maintain the principles of the Colonization So ciety, ardently desire the abolition of slavery, whenever, and so soon as, it can be peaceably accomplished; and herein our anxiety falls not short of that, which actuates the members of the Anti Slavery Society. But we aim at practical objects by practical means and we are at a loss to understand the definite point 011 which our assailants would lay their hands, and to which they would apply their money, - and still more to conceive how any useful purpose whatever is to be accomplished by such means as they employ. I say our assailants, because extraordinary as the fact is, it is not the less true, that the main immediate object of the anti-slavery Society would appear from its publications, al though not so expressed in its constitution, to be the denouncing and maligning of the Colonization Society, its founders, its mem bers, its purposes, both in Europe and America.
