Act- L.7ja., PiATFOEM OF .PHIBfCIPiES Adopted by the 'Wisconsin Democracy al Oilober 2; Resolved. Thai in Lbe present National crisis ttie. rallying cry of true men and patriots should be "The it must and shall be preserved." Resolved, That we deny the right of any State number of Stales to vpjthdraw from the Union, and lo relinquish their obligations and allegiance to the constitu- tion and laws of the United Slates, and that the attempt so to do on the part of the seceded Slates is in direct conflict with the spirit and letter of the constitution, and a blow aimed directly at the existence of the government, which should be re- sisted with all the power at ils command. That it has ever been, and ever should be the policy of to resist the claim whenever and wherever asserted, and to blast it with prompt and vigorous action. Reiolved, That the Democracy ever have and still do, deprecate the agitation, both NorLh and South, of those sectional issues which have distracted Lbe country, and that political policy which has asserted the light of construing the consiitution ancl laws of the Federal Government to conform to ihe views of particular Slates, ignoring the fact that the consiitution is ihe supreme law of the land, equally bind- ing on ibe people of all the States, and thai it is susceptible of but one eonslruc- lion in all localities. And we assert, that although these secilional agitations and consti'tulional interpretations, North and South, have immed the impending war, they afford no justification for ilie aclion of the seceded States, and ihal- the Union ;ind constitution iniisL be preserved and enforced in every State, and Territory of ibe United Resolved, That depreciate llie spirit. manifested by all (hose people ill the North wlio seek lo force :he National Arlniinis- ration to abandon llie policy which has been sJiiic'ionfrl bv the Government of ;lie Uniied States in ilia comlucS of ihe war, and lo sulifiitute therefor the aboli- liun of slavery u? its primary object, as at var with the very purpose tor which i.he war is prosecuted, anil us incompali b'e wiih a coiriplela restoration of the of these Slates. Resolvz'l, Thai we owe it to those noble men in Lhe Border Slates who are struir to maintain the Government in their respective Slates, as well ,is to our- selves, lo erase from our statule book all laws and resolutions lhal have been seel which are at variance wilh the cor.sti- laws of ihe Uniled Slates, and are calculaied lo embarrass the Govern- ment in suppressing the rebellion We therefore recommend to ihe loyal people of this Suite, may. threaten it. That in the Ian- gu ige of the lament Douglas, "We should never forget that a man cannot be a true Democrat, unless he is a '_ loyal and, that ihe words of our dying states- pout, and they :w ere read by the Clerk.; A motion -was adopted requesting the attendance of the 'Sheriff upon the Board during its session.

Eggers, Pierpont-ar.d Esslinger. .The committee appointed lit the July sesssion to examine into A certain road, in the town of Franklin, made the following REPORT. To the Hon. the Board of Supervisors. of County of Manitowoc. The undersigned a committee appoint- ed by your HOD. body to lake inlo.con- sideration a petition numerously signed by the citizens of the town of in said county, relative to a certain road therein named, to examine said road and to report thereon, would respectfully .re- port as follows, to wil: Your committee have had the subject matter of said petition, and the whole sub- ject referred to them, under deliberate consideration.. They find first, that the road, alluded to in gaid peiitioji is one of the oldest travelled roads in tha western part of ths county, (except, perhaps a mile and a hnlf on tha north east of said Road, whera it lies through n cedar and ia not was laid out by the pro- par authorities of Maple Grova, when thai, town composed the present towns of Ma- ple Grovej Rockland, Cato aud Frauklin.

Chapter 181 of. the private and lo- cal laws of 1859 describes saiii road for the purpose of authorizing a tax lo -be as- Bossed on the lands adjoining it, in sucb. description it is made-to. follow the town line of the towns of. Fraufclin and Maple Grove, from near the Catholic Church north to the line of Brown county, about a mile am! a half of the north part of lies chiefly through a cedar swamp, and does not connect at the county line, wiih any olher road., This part of the road is not opened, and cannot be made a good road, in the opinion oi your committee, for less than two or ihree thousand dollars, anil if built would accomodale only a'very few families who live near its northern termi- nus. Your committa would most respectfully recommend lhat the building of said be abandoned, and memorialize the'Leg.- islature to repeiil said ,act, granting said tax for said-road.
