Gov. loote, of KunMippi on the Stump for Speech at [Special Report for the New Tork Herald.] August 1, 1860. Ex-Senator, Henry S. Foote, of Mississip- pi, who has been spending some wicks at tho Springs, was invited yesterday to address the Young Men's Democratic State Convention, in stssioii here. He accepted the invitation, and spoke last evening at Metrupolitean Hall to as lurge an audience us could squeeze itsulf into the not very spacious room. Bis appear ance on the platform was greeted with entliu- sinstic demonstrations. Hcexprcssed himself delighted at the enthusiasm prevalent in the convention, and throughout the Empire State at this oi-iticnl moment in the country's histo- ry in behalf of Douglas nnd Douglas and the Douglas and poli ttcal reform. Ho pray- ed that that feeling might prevail still more widely, might grow stronger and stronger, and energize every man in the republic, until in November next, such a majority would be rendered in favor of the fundamental princi- ples of civil liberty ns would forever silence the eavulers of the day and put down were three important objects to be ac- complished in this grenl the of the principle of non-interven- tion; second, the cleansing away of all exist- ing corruptions in office, unj tho reformation of certain evil usages of most deleterious influ- ence at the present day; and third, the saving of the Union itself from the danger thtit me- naced it. The principle of non-intervention has been so often of lute, and f-o nbly, especially by their own distinguished candidate for the Presidency, that it would be a wearisome and unprofitable tusk for him to underUtku to discuss it here. There are am- ny who undertook to assert that this doctrine of non-intervention a new fnngltid doc- trine. How dared any man to say BO? Pro idle, worse than absurd, was it 4a assert so. It M as old as the principle of libeity itself in this land of freudom. It was embodied in tbe faith ol their colonial ances- tors. It wa; a radical pi inciplc 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 Caroline? 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 iactionists, shallow and uri- substuntial as they mischievous, of the sunny South, uttered habitual praises of these nnble 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. MaJi- son had years ago, in a letter to Mr. Everett, asserted that there resolutions were not iu- lendm) to embody the accursed doctrines of n H fl-a ion, or the infernal 'doctrine of seces- 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, clear- ly, eloquently, and irresistibly, the great principle of non-intervention in his work, en- titled "Constructions Construed and Consti- tutions Vindicated." He would recommend them ''But- the Dern'ocriwy' did not despair of their good cause. They embodied that very doctrine in ibe compro- mise measures of 1850, with the consent of Clay, Webster, and other, of die leading statmmen of that thy." They ;In accordance -with' the 'recommendation of Mr. Fillmore, were 'offereJ in both houses'of Congress, deolaririg' that these 'oom'- promise measures constituted a final cettlc- ment. Thus the principle of non-interven- tion was adopted in the democratic creed hi 1852, and in the whig creed in 1892, and was accepted by all Americans, 'with tbe excep- 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 it.1 PRACTICAL NON-INTKBVENTION. Of what injury bad it been to any man to assert that any portion of the American peo- ple should br> allowed, to some extent, the power of self-government f Some people could not understand the wisdom of taking the question out of bidls of Congress, and thus converting- Cngresc into a truly National body, which would, attend practically and wisely to the general business: 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 blnck republicans would1 bare been, a'majority of tlii people at this time under the dunti_____ tbe Congreei of the.United State j, and greas would have been tbe meat writable -Hs potiim that .the world fjrji' AI molt emphatically assert' the; grew to eulmit- or reject take now to assert that tbe people ritorfes have no right woateter in their WiiOaiionT they tj the plain first principles oh which meat irCcnffrtti _ 7. to ezeraice power; of admitting there would ban- been a majority ot pie ilavec to an tnoniinnte that deepotUm wonld dated Itntf repablioan. t. vtv e A CLASSICAL COMriattM ,V Long before now then wouW "hare 'been a raorrgHndirtg tbanithat which Bocbanan is now atteaptiag to __________ dttpotisra much more grinding tha i MST would- be Ttbenua has been abb to Mr, Buchanan, be continued, is BKUW like Tieerias in bis relations than any man-1 e er lieiniof in the pagsaiot' history. 1 nave grant respect however, for for the intdtootual rmratter of Tiberius, and should be very sorry to attijbote Mr. Buchanan a of .T-ibrfius' uitet- to Mr. Buchanan a tithe of .T-ibrfius' intel- lect.

Passing on to- the questions of d in the North, ho alluded to the" moeratic victories of 1856, and declarwi that tetuoorabi) would still have been triuniphaht in every State in the North, if Mr. Buchanan had been trne to his trust. And, DOW, bnt for one gallant, upright, fearless, immortal statesman, with all the heroism of Jt-ctooii In his bosom, still holding up tbe old i on-inter- vention flag of the dentueratir part in tint Senate of tbe United d, mocratic party in tbe North would have bee n utterly and they wonld have BiA'ne national denooratie nominalinti to There no one so well filteif to r redeem 'the partj, to vinaicaie iU, p and to oppose the host of eomtpiraiors combinot for his7 deatroettop, aJet the Presidential tyraDtfuoetofi.ee, anri disgnuwd hlin: He met thtrJeft fflrWlm Ibe the HtMisiB, and the TROY AND, OLD RENSSXLASK: Thia magni- ficent reception from you, on my arrival in the native city of my father, and of my grarul- fathen, tills my henrt with joy and creates feelings which I cannot adequately express to you in words.' In this county, for more than one, hundred years, my ancestors duolt, and I have perhaps a larger number of relatives within its limits than in thorn 'of any other county- in' the world. Therefore 1 greet ydu as friends, who, withoutdistinction of party, have come out to give me welcome. I am glad to meet this vnst auiiience vast in mim- becs and vigorous in its enthusiasm. And 1 am glad to learn, as I do from the remarks of your Mayor, that you have come here to en- dorse those principles- which.it haa been -the labor of my political life tu defend. The 'tones of his speech are highly gratifying to me. Fur thrre oanbe no reward taapublia man so grateful, after, the approval of his own1 con- soience, an the approbitfon of his frflow citi- zens whom it is his effort to serve. It was true, M was said by 'your Mayor in, the course of his remarks, that my first speech in the council hallo of this nation, was made in vin- dication of the old- hero' of New 'Orleans, for the performance of tmit rlobteactby which he saved hb country from-tho approach of the in- vader. I fat it raj, duty well as my pleas- ure, to defend that oW hero from the assaults which had been heaped upon him in conse- quence of that act, and to do what I onuld do, to procure him relief from- tbe penalties of a sentence pronounced on' acoonnt of 'its per- formance. And IrwilLsay now, that no act- of my life haa given roe [mom pleasure, or left behind it a siticerer gratification. My only, regrefnow'is, in these days of turmoil, of dan-' ger, when the of rain threaten Kappinew of our own; beloved there is not another "Old Hickory" to pot ,down, not only abolitionism at tbe North, but nulli- fication and disunion at to repress the elements, of discard and, evil wherever they exist, and give peace to our loved to pour oit upon7 the troubled watersv and bid the roariirg; "peace, be afiUi" say friemts.U is vain and criminal to attempt to conceal tbe fevcty that the institu. tions and happiness: of country' are now in greater danger, in more absolute than they have been at any other period in its his- tory. Whenever our institutions have Seen put in danger from civil in' the oDr cons. you n ttercoly raging be. tween the 1 two' great distinctive sections' of a conflict that can only 'be set tied in one or two wnys, either by the dicso- lution of the Union, or by_ the adoption of tbe principle of non-intervention with slavery, or any other domestic institution of the 'federal non- intervention now, and non- intervention everywhere leaving the people of the territories perfectly free to foim and regulate their domestic institutions in their own way ..subject to no outside control or vin- terterence whatever. The democratic party stands pledged to this principle now, as it hits ever stood; and it will not desert it while the Union exists to be defended It maintains tbat tbe people of the territories arc perfectly able to control their own internal affairs, and it purposes to leave them, as it does those of the States, free to do 'it. Tsay now nnd here, a's T tmve always said, that the democratic party is not entitled to the sole honor for the discovery of the principle of non-intervention. In the great contest of 1848 and 1849, the no- ble Clay stood firmly and consistently upon this ground; leaving the quiet of a cov- eted retirement, .nnd coming forth ugnin inhis reverend old age, to pour oiiupon the troubled waters of bitterness nnd strife. Clay was the leader of all National Union men in tbat groat and heroic Htiuggle, and the representatives of-both the Whig uud Demo- cratic parties rallied about him, and gave him their earnest support. Fur eight or nine months we assembled, together in the council room, at eleven o'clock of each day, to consult 'upon measures for, healing the existing bitter-, ness a tul giving -peace, to the country.< There was the godlike Clay, the father and leader in the movements. And there VKIS. the noblo Webster upon his right, and the venerable Casa upon his left, and around them' the men at.texineton, Ky., aooepting for Vice President. I stood ,hjm the same platform, at Tippocanoe.aruijieewd him maintain this and! John iC. Breckenridge went as far in its any other sovereign went. 'Neither Buchan- an nor Breckenridge would or' could have been t elected on any other platform. they had come, to yon here at the North and toM you aiey did notbolievc in thii piiuoiple, tbat j they wore in favor of forcing slavery upon tho peoplo that did not want it how many fotM do you; suppose they would tare gottV'( '.Not No, net any..
