On motion a committee of five were appointed As follows to draft resolutions expressive of the sense of the meeting Thos. D. Walpole j. Tomlinson Kilby Ferguson j. Ii. Mcrea and o. B. Stout. The committee returning reported through their Chain iian the following which was unanimously adopted whereas the late National democratic convention both at Charleston and Baltimore failed in United and regular convocation to present to the democracy for their support names for the offices of president and vice president of the United states thereby disappointing the patriotic Hopes of those who were More anxious for the continued Ascendancy of genuine democratic principles than the gratification of the personal aspirations of candidates and causing a separation into two bodies of the elements composing the convention the one resolving to support Stephen a. Douglas of Illinois and Herschel v. Johnson of Georgia the other John c. Breckinridge of Kentucky and Joseph Lane of Oregon and whereas it is believed by tins meeting that the circumstances under which the organization Wasey i acted that nominated Breckinridge and Laue were not Only such As fully and fairly justify the step but to make it imperative therefore resolved that this meeting most cordially approves the action of that convention and pledges a Hearty and zealous support of the nominations.

Eckles of Putnam being present and unanimously called upon addressed the meeting i As follows fellow citizens of the county of Marion i have j witnessed with Pride the growth and Prosperity of i your Beautiful City of Indianapolis. My first visit Here was when general Jackson was the candidate of the democracy for president. I came Here to promote that nomination in so far As the s state was concerned but i never before have had occasion to address you. And it is with pain now that under the circumstances i i appear before you. It is with pain in View of the divisions of the demo Ira tic party. United always and every Liere is the democracy victorious. Having no dissensions among ourselves no party has Ever i been Able to prevail against us. If we were not divided to Day no party could beat us. Upon somebody somewhere rests a fearful accountability for this disruption. I do not now intend to Stop to inquire who i has driven the Assassin s steel into the vitals of the party. I shall use no hard words at ally they Are bad arguments. I simply propose to inquire what was the Patio our fathers trod and which it is our duty to follow. There is a difference Between us As to the time j Wincn the a Cople of a territory May decide with Lel i Elencu to tie establishment or prohibition of slavery i among themselves. There is a difference Between us Wilh respect to the Power of intervention by Congress regarding the rights of property personal and domes i tic in the territories. These Are the two Points upon i which we disagree. I quote from president Buchan-1 an s inaugural upon these Points. I read you the sex i to act simply Abr tie a purpose of showing that there has j for years existed a Dihe rence of opinion in the democratic party As to the time when the people of a ter i Mitory might establish or prohibit slavery. Or. Doug i Las insists that the people of a territory themselves i without intervention one Way or the other by con a Gress May while in a territorial condition make what a Ever enactments they May choose with reference to j the institution. They May inhibit it or they May establish it or they May adopt a course of unfriendly legislation with respect to it. Or. Breckinridge on the other hand assets that the proper time for any legislation on the subject is when they come to form a state Constitution. Our Plati Brm alleges this. Or. Douglas platform says not Liing about it. These Dizier i fences produced the disruption at Charleston. It has been said that a purpose to Torce slave code resolutions upon the convention brought about the i Sruv Tion. My friends it was Jio such thing. I read you the resolutions which caused the split. The constitutional doctrine regarding territorial rights of property was maintained on the one Side and denied on the outlier. Now my fellow citizens let us look Back to the Good old Days and see what the Law of this territory was when we acquired it. I refer to the treaty of 1803, under which we made the acquisition from Napoleon. Territorial Laws do not seem to be generally Well understood. Virginia in the cession of the North Western territory Quot imposed conditions. There was a condition in the deed and it became the duty of the Federal government to keep the Grant. Now with respect to the territory acquired from France there was also a condition imposed. What was this condition ? i read you from the treaty to show that until the people thereof came to erect state governments All rights of property were in the mean time to be respected and protected. Our fathers understood the matter. They knew that the people of a territory could in no Way infringe upon rights guarantied by treaty. They could do nothing in contravention of an instrument made under the constitutions their Paramount Law. Until such time As they made application for admission As states into the Union what was to be done ? the Federal government had taken it upon itself to maintain them in the full enjoyment of All their rights of persons and property. Then when we purchased this country it had fifty thousand slaves in it. Arhat did our fathers do ? they consented As i have shown you to guarantee to the people their rights respecting this slave property and to protect them therein. The consented to do this by solemn compact with a foreign Power. Avas not this the condition of things Ashen we acquired Louisiana ? was not every Inch of it slave territory there used to be two men in Congress in 1836�? a particularly objectionable on the score of abolitionism. Nobody was willing to vouch for Thomas Morris of Olio and John Quincy Adams of Massachusetts. That year was a memorable one in our history. In that year France refused to pay the s5,000,000. That was the year of the revolution in Texas. That was the year in which Arkansas applied for admission into the Union for admission As a slave state. For Twenty eight consecutive hours without adjournment and without refreshment the South and the North in Congress were pitted against each other Over the matter. Adams much As he disliked the Bond Morris much As he hated slavery As a moral evil both declared that Arkansas was entitled to admission As Louisiana and Missouri had been admitted As a slave state being erected in territory where slavery was the established Law of the land. Both were for abiding by the com act. Are you not afraid when you cannot go where Adams went that you Are getting a Little too tender footed ? Adams knew that it was not honest to acquire a country and keep it and refuse to keep the bargain by which it was acquired and it made him walk up to the rack and vote As was recorded. And the Missouri Compromise line was in violation of that treaty in maintenance of which Adams in the Case of Arkansas had voted. Republicans say slavery must be kept out of this territory by congressional intervention. Douglas says it must be kept out by territorial legislation. Whether the Southern men Are kicked out with the right foot or the left one makes but Little difference. This Union was made by slave states. There was but one free when it was established. The old to liar teen must be beginning to feel very much As we old men do at the antics of our fast boys at the antics of Young America who snubs us with his fingers on his nose and jigs hands in our pockets. It becomes us to look carefully into their Riff tsp the rights of the slave o states and respect them. As the Power is passing into our hands we ought to be All the More careful to weigh Well what is their due and Accord it to them. Do our Southern friends ask for anything More than is nominated in the Bond ? we have divided immense gains by our acquisitions from them. Let us live up to the Bond. The admission of Arkansas settled the question until the mexican War then our Northern friends threw in the niger instead of the supplies into the army. Then were Brou let on the troubles which beset us in 1850, when Chiy and Cass counselled to Geilier for the iof Cly of the country. I wish la per a or huh Anima to a taxi a Slor Ioos Patriot Val been a How in the Liol. Jim pm in a of a new 1i0 a f face n he of All prof Mied to it sect the rights of All and m democrats Howaad All be pub a cans ought to remember it and As is proved to have been the understanding and intention of those patriots by the Compromise resolutions from which i read leave the question where they left it asserting As they asserted no Power either in territorial Legislatures or in Congress to interfere by inhibition respecting the rights of property in any citizen from whatever Section of the confederacy. The territories Are the common property of the people of the whole Union. And Clay the prospects of Breckin. Ridge and Lane. The Cincinnati enquirer Clainda All the Northern states except two for Douglas. Why not claim Massachusetts and Vermont too the enquirer would make its readers believe that Breckinridge and Lake Are not in the fight at All. That our read Ere May see what our friends Are doing North and South we extract the following from the new York Day Book and Cass understood that regarding slavery the time Abr the people to act was when with a sufficient population they came to erect Quot for themselves a state government. Where is the Quot old guard to Day a where Are the scar worn veterans whigs and democrats alike who had embraced on this question ? in 1852 the people ratified this platform by the election of Franklin Pierce. Whigs and democrats everywhere agreed to abide by it. In 1854 some troubles arose in Congress. Douglas introduced his Ivanas and Nebraska Bill asserting certain rights in the people of a territory. Finally it was agreed that they the people should regulate and establish their own institutions in their own Avay subject Only to the Constitution of the United states. That Bill was a very unfortunate Bill. You and i and everybody see this to Day. It revived agitation. It brought upon us All our present troubles. The North and the South had agreed that the courts should Settle the question As to Lime. They had agreed to leave it to the courts. Jar. Buchanan had said it was a judicial question. I want to satisfy my Douglas friends about this matter. Has the supreme court decided with regard to time if it has somebody has not been sticking up to the bargain. Dred Scott claimed his Freedom on two grounds one was that he had been taken by his master into free territory. Here the question is brought up As to the right or Power of Congress to interfere with slavery in the territory acquired from France. I have already referred to this Point and i read again from the documents. Titis territory was acquired from the general government subject to the rights of All. The decision said that property therein must be held under the Laws in Force when the territory was acquired until the people thereof came to form for themselves a state. 1 am aware of a Dodge going around about orbiter dictum and All that. Kansas was settled under the Douglas Bill. The Bones of the slain Whiten her Plains. If you revive this idea that the ii St set of Fellows who get into a territory shall Settle this question you renew those scenes of Contention and carnage again. Only by constitutional Means can the territories be settled peacefully. Only under the Constitution and in accordance therewith can they Progress prosperously until the time comes for their admission into the Union. But after All our Republican friends Are answer ble for All the trouble we have got and Well pay them for it one of these Days. If in Northern Illinois they and addressed by him Bradley t. Johnson and oth had not pressed or. Douglas so hard with that rail ers. The course of the latter who was a Delegate was there would have been no difficulty. Lincoln s interrogatories got or. Douglas Down. He had in answer thereto expressly said Liat the people of a territory a could exclude slavery in contravention of the decision the National democratic nominations. Baltimore Friday july 6.�?the friends of Breckinridge and Lane Are holding a Large ratification meeting Here to night in Monument Square. The speakers Are sex governor Lowe Hon. Humphrey Marshall and others. A private letter to a gentleman in Washington City dated Columbus Geo., june 30th, says a Quot All along the Road through East Tennessee and Northern Georgia there goes up one Universal shout for the democratic tickets Breckinridge and Lane. The bogus democracy will Hai Day have strength enough to make a jarring note in the general voice which is raised for the support of the party. As yet there Are not five Douglas men in we Are authorized by a responsible gentleman to say that he will bet one Hundred dollars that two states cannot be named that will give their electoral votes to Stephen a. courier 3d.

Reed in favor of the platform of the Baltimore democratic convention and its nominees Breckinridge and Lane. The Frederick my citizen describes a ratification meeting presided Over b sex governor Lowe of the supreme court. If this language of or. Douglas. Which i have noted had preceded the decision of the supreme court there might have been some excuse for it. And this answer by or. Douglas was in direct denial of the Cincinnati platform from which i also note and upon which he has professed to stand. Whence comes the determination to throw the elections of this year into the hands of the republicans ? who have resolved to do this but the followers of or. Douglas in the Charleston convention ? i am not Active enough old men generally Are not Active enough to Clear platform candidate principle and All at a single bound. I who voted for general Jackson two years before i was old enough cannot thus desert principle. There i stand upon Denio i Atic principle and never will i surrender.
