This is a good assignment. If you read chapter six over again, it will help you, because such a speech exists. If you did not know, Napoleon accuses Snowball of harming animal farm. That said, here are few pointers to get you started. 

In any speech, you want to be persuasive. This means that you need good rhetoric and good content. 

In terms of rhetoric, just read any of Squealer's speeches. They drip of rhetoric - high sounding language, scientific points, and rhetorical questions. 

In terms of content, you should probably mention these themes. First, Snowball has been plotting with Mr. Jones in secret from the beginning. Second, the most dangerous enemy is an enemy from within. These two points will increase the fear factor, which is a powerful force in any speech. Third, time is of the essence. In other words, the time to act is now. Any delay will make Snowball stronger.
