He accepted the invitation and spoke last evening at Hall to as lurge an audience us could squeeze into the not very spacious room Bis appear ance on the platform was greeted with demonstrations himself delighted at the enthusiasm prevalent in the convention and throughout the Empire State at this moment in the country's histo- ry in behalf of Douglas nnd Douglas and the Douglas and poli

of the fundamental ples of civil liberty ns would forever silence the of the day and put down were three important objects to be in this the of the principle of tion second the cleansing away of all ing corruptions in office tho reformation of certain evil usages of most deleterious ence at the present day and third the saving of the Union itself from the danger it The principle of has been so often of lute and f-o especially by their own distinguished candidate for the Presidency that it would be a wearisome and unprofitable tusk for him to to discuss it here There are ny who undertook to assert that this doctrine of a new trine How dared any man to say Pro idle worse than absurd was it assert so It M as old as the principle of itself in this land of It was embodied in tbe faith ol their colonial tors It wa a radical pi of the old re- publican party One of the most illustrious statesmen that Virginia ever Taylor of apolitical work which he published early in this century asserted this principle and unfolded it fully without any opposition from any quarter And n ho was John Taylor of In tho Old Dominion that question would be answered by evory schoolboy of ten years of age They had all heard of the celebrated resolutions of 1798 and certain shallow and as they mischievous of the sunny South uttered habitual praises of these resolutions which he ventured to say these gentlemen bad either never read or had never been able to comprehend Either that or else Mr Madison was a fool for Mr son had years ago in a letter to Mr Everett asserted that there resolutions were not to embody the accursed doctrines of n H ion or the infernal doctrine of were they intended to refer ever so remotely to such evil and diabolical projects Mr Madison was the author of these resolutions but it was John Taylor of Caroline who offered them for adoption in the Virginia Legislature and this same John Taylor asserted boldly ly eloquently and irresistibly the great principle of in his work en- titled Constructions Construed and Vindicated He would recommend them the did not despair of their good cause They embodied that very doctrine in ibe mise measures of 1850 with the consent of Clay Webster and other of die leading of that thy They In accordance the recommendation of Mr Fillmore were in both Congress that these promise measures constituted a final ment Thus the principle of tion was adopted in the democratic creed hi 1852 and in the whig creed in 1892 and was accepted by all Americans with tbe tion of a few wretched abolition ists in the North ami n few equally wretched ists in the South It WM therefore an an- cient doctrine and no man could honestly gainsay PRACTICAL Of what injury bad it been to any man to assert that any portion of the American ple should allowed to some extent the power of self-government f Some people could not understand the wisdom of taking the question out of of Congress and thus into a truly National body which would attend practically and wisely to the general of the nation instead of being a fountain of mischief of discontent of discord now flowing and which must continue to flow so long ns that The republicans

and stormy declamations on grave ters of statesmanship which they never had been and never would bi able to comprehend Applause and Laughter t FRIEND DICKINSON A certain Senator from N T whom he once loved and reverenced and whom be still loved but pitied his friend Oh Daniel's played out Laughter resolutions in tbe Senate of the Uni- ted States in December 1847 in which be trade the first parliamentary declaration of the groat principle of popular sovereignty and now Mr Dickinson become to some ex- tent forgetful of that principle He had brought these resolutions to him Mr Foote nnd others to know whether they would be wilting to support them Ho Mr Foote was delighted with them He thought they exhibited tbe great fundamental principle of the democratic creed and he told him he would sanction them Gen Cass also ved bnt Mr of ship Mr Dickinson now boasts seemed de- termined tn denounce his and self and they therefore advised him ly not to prow his resolutions to a vote but try content himself with letting them lie table He took their advice and the lie thereat present moment The step in tbe matter WM Gen Nicholson Letter That sot with marked deliberation Tbe leMer

soil may demand the institution of The democrats who go for say No let the people of the Territories alone let them have slavery if they choose and if the and mil are favorable Applause But that would not suit tbe views of some gentlemen of the South It would suit them very well for congress not to intervene against the South but they would have Congress interfere for their they would have Congress to enact taws to force slavery upon the people of the But true democrats North South East and West that the tine principle of would be violated by such and therefore they are opposed to them DAVIS AND CALEB He wanted the people of tho Territories to enjoy their rights as American citizens This was not squatter sovereignty squatter was a term invented ty Jeff Davis and some other shallow demagogues like him Jeff Davis who had the temerity to de- ny in the Senate of United States that ho ever was a secessionist when the fact was that in the State of Mississippi he was the champion of secession he Mr had the honor of being the champion of the Union Cheers Hero as Jeff Davis wus ho Mr Foote by force of truth and thu ad- of sound principles him to his own quiet abode on tho banks of the sippi where he would huve remained but for the great mistake committed by Mr Pierce a well-intentioned and amiable man but subject to be deluded Pierce took the advice of Caleb Caleb Cushing the synonim of treachery corruption I Mr Foote in an excited I say und hope it will be re- ported 1 would say it to his face and I would like to be permitted to repeat it in Newburyport I say that is as corrupt a man as the world seeu He was abolitionist in 1836 when he op- posed the admission of Arkansas on the ground of abolitionism in a speech which some said was eloquent and all admitted to be very fervid nnd fierce This old political demagogue is now one of the heads of the cession faction in the South and was specially honored lately in the State of Alabama where they could not close a popular demonstration without firing a double shotted cannon for Wm L Yancey and Caleb But for that man and his diabolical treachery Mr Davis the champion of secession in 1891 would never have been allowed to emerge fiom that retirement to which by the force of truth and by the aid of heaven I was able to drive him A sympathising voice Take the hides off all of them AGAIN Some gentlemen in the South were so very wise as to say that they hod a right to demand of Congress special protection protection far beyond the true and legal scope of the non- intervention principle Mr Douglas never did maintain the doctrine of squatter sovereignty and there is not a supporter of bis in aU the Union maintains it He never met a man enough to assert that thn mere to the Southern champions less cruelty in unscrupulous in d court in low and vulgar J gard of all that is usually held in a partiality for low men and for corrupt tools tS be the base instruments of he Tiberius He wanderers in tho Territories who had gone there the consent of Congress hod the right to meet together for the purpose of adopting legislation which in nil time to come was to nx the destiny of that portion of the Territories in regard to slavery No one ever asserted the doctrine unless it might be some madman from the doora of a madhouse What they did maintain and were determined to maintain was this and be would throw down thn gauntlet to all Southern men from Wm L down for a free and fearless con- test on this question He woe determined on the of August in the city of ville to talk a little more plainly about this matter Applause Their doctrine was this as he heard it most clearly and luminously ted tbe other night in Boston to Judge Tbat when the people of the U States freemen all go from their own homes on the invitation of Congress to settle in the new and to locate themselves there they should be allowed special pre- emption rights in to tbe purchase of thuir lands and tbat when they should have built their cottages and churches and schools and in the wilderness when these communities and when Territorial governments be given to them and they should be invited to send a delegate to then they should
