You May assert positively that general Joseph Lane gov. Powell of Kentucky Hon. G. N. Fitch and j. D. Bright of our own state and others will address the meeting on that Day. July 9,1860. One of the most common and perhaps the most striking features of party politics for Many years past has been the sudden and seemingly wide inconsistencies which have marked the course of prominent Itic ians both at the North and at the South. Or. Webster first led off in this sudden and on apparent total disregard of Long cherished principles for the charge that or. Van Buren betrayed his avowed opinions or even faithless to his party obligations in 1848, we think cannot be sustained. The fuestion e resented a new one one on which or. Van Luren had never acted and though the Early policy of the government never anti slavery As now claimed by the republicans it is Well known that or. Jefferson John Randolph and Many of the leading minds of that generation entertained Quot anti slavery Quot opinions and As or. Van Buren an ardent admirer and Earnest Bruever in the general doctrines of the former it perfectly natural when the question actually came up in 1848, that he should desire to apply these personal and abstract opinions of or. Jefferson to the Federal territories. History will be even More lenient to his memory in re pet to party obligations and the pledges implied if not expressed in p dirty associations. The regular delegates from new York to the Baltimore convention in 1848, were excluded by that body though the bogus delegation that contested their Rii it to represent the state had infinitely less ground to stand on than the Wood delegation at Charleston for however irregular the latter May have been it had a real popular and Bona fide constituency in this City at All events. With such an insult to state sovereignty there no alternative. The delegates were not Only justified but it due to the people they represented that they should shake the dust from their feet at Baltimore and vindicate state sovereignty by an Independent nomination. This they proceeded to do at Utica but the wild passions aroused led them on still farther and to assimilate with anti slavery ites at Buffalo though history will probably relieve intr. Van Buren from Many of the subsequent errors of his friends. In regard to or. Webster the Case widely Dlf Fernt. In his celebrated eth of March speech As Well As the so called Compromise he actually trampled under foot the convictions of a lifetime. He not Only abandoned his Quot anti slavery Quot position but he divorced himself from a system and bad he lived to this time and remained in Public life the Ine Xoi Able necessities of that act would have driven him Onward to stand Side by Side with Cushing in the support of Breckinridge and Lane. The changes and mutations among democrats Are not so Radu Al As among these old fashioned or Federal whigs but they have Otten seemed even More sudden and inconsistent. Senators Foote and cd mens came to Washington in 1850, the most uproarious of Dalsun Lonist and a 1851 they were the head and front of the great Union party of the South messes. Forsyth and John iii the latter the Douglas candidate for the vice presidency were in 1852 the most violent secessionists in the South and they claim to Lead now the forlorn Hope of the unionists but it is the North and especially in this state where party politicians have displayed their greatest capacity for a adapting their principles to supposed party or personal necessities and from 1849 to 1860 there is scarcely a politician in the state that has not occupied All sides on the Quot slavery the late governor Mairy dug out of the debris of the state Bank interest finder a hich he buried in 1840, to be used As an instrument for Quot killing off Quot governor Wright but like the adder warmed into life by the simple Gardener he sold out his owners to the Quot free spoilers Quot without a moment s hesitation or the slightest compunction. In. Dickinson has doubtless been personally considered the most consistent politician in the state but even he has been on most sides if not quite All sides of the question. His Especial friends sought to make a party test of the Quot comp Ronnoc of 1850,&Quot but it the two great wings in opposition to that Compromise that nominated general Pierce and that Quot substantially controlled the Pierce administration. Again when the repeal of the Missouri Compromise which really deserved to be a party test made such the friends 8f or. Dickinson were bund to be rather Quot weak in the Knees Quot and a majority of them voted against it. Finally and perhaps most glaringly inconsistent of All the bitterest opponents of that repeal Are now the leaders of the Douglas party and several journals that Only a year ago supported Lecompton ism Are now the warm admirers of the Little giant Quot because he is supposed to have Defeated that policy now what does All this mean ? Are the party politicians utterly demoralized and ready to sell their democracy their country even their souls if they have any for office ? not it is not quite As bad As All that though it is very certain that the k Lotical morality of the country or at any rate of this state is sadly deteriorated below the Standard of other Days. It is because there has been no party Issue nor in any True sense a democratic party for the last twelve years. The great party led by Jackson completed its Mission with the Polk administration and there have been Only mercenary factions since struggling for the spoils and personal ambitions. But a real living and glorious democratic party is now rapidly organizing All Over the country whose Mission is even broader and grander than that led by the old hero of the Hermitage. Its Mission is to defeat to exterminate to utterly annihilate anti slavery ism and to restore peace and fraternity to All sections of the Republic. It therefore unfurls its Standard of equal rights the same Protection of person and of property for All american citizens within the jurisdiction of the common government. This great fundamental principle cannot be mistaken by any one and it is unanswerable except on the theory of the Quot republicans Quot that Negi Oes Are citizens. The Issue therefore Between Breckinridge and Lincoln is As Plain and distinct As it is deep and momentous. The former holds this to be a Republic of White men and demands Legal and political Equality for its Twenty five millions of citizens the latter holds that negroes Are entitled to the same lights As White men and proposes to place them on a common level in Short one is Quot pro slavery Quot and the other anti slavery Quot and every voter in the Northern states is called upon to make his decision for one or the other of these positions. Douglas ism and Bellis Are no where in this conflict. They do not even modify it and before the election takes place every one the most stupid and the most dishonest alike will see beyond doubt or question the stupendous importance of the Issue involved. There is therefore no longer any motive nor indeed any Chance for double Flea Ling. It is a Square stand up fight and the Man not in favor of equal rights in the territories or who tries to avoid the Issue before the country will be thrust aside trampled under foot or driven into the ranks of anti slavery ism. Those who Are not with the True living regenerated democracy Are against it. They Are whited sepulchres Lair perhaps to the outside but within full of rottenness and dead men s Bones and in their attempt to steer Between the contending forces must be ground to . Y. Day Book. Newark july 3, 1860. New Jersey democratic state executive democratic state executive committee of new Jersey held a meeting in Jersey City yesterday Forenoon and voted to Issue a Call for a state convention to be held at Trenton on the 25th of july to nominate an electoral ticket. The committee recommend that the ticket be composed of four Douglas and three Breckinridge men to be supported by the friends of each candidate and respectively headed Douglas ticket and Breckinridge ticket. If this is successful the ticket having the majority is to have the electoral vote of the state except in Case the whole vote will elect either candidate he is to have it. Exl it from the speech of Hon b. F. Hallett of mass., author of the Cincinnati platform at the grand serenade to Breckinridge and Lane the nominees of the democratic National convention at Washington june 2bth, 1860. The nomination of Breckinridge and Lane ratified by a mass meeting of the democrats of Knox county in this City on last evening. Able Elmunt and appropriate addresses were be by col. Darid h. Cummings of Anderson William Parker es�., Gen. J. C. Ramsey and major j. F. J. Let of this City. It a Large and harmonious meeting. We will give full particulars next Register. And now permit me to Point out to you the line of division which clearly Maas the two positions of the democratic party touching the platform. I believe in platforms As essential to the very existence of political Faith. The democratic party has always relied on platforms since the resolutions of 98, and it has never before refused to explain its platforms when subject to a double construction. Is not that the present condition of the Cincinnati platform which both conventions have adopted entire ? in that connection i May say Here to night that i made All of the Cincinnati platform which bears on this question and therefore i think i understand it and have some Little right to expound it. And i affirm of that platform that it has not nowhere in it or under it by one or sentence or word or construction or possible Conception one particle of Quot squatter Quot squatter sovereignty Quot if it have any meaning Means that the legis Hilture of a newly organized territory at its first session can prohibit and destroy the right of the citizens of All the states to come into that territory or live in that territory with their slave property. Jut the Cincinnati platform denies that Power in the most explicit terms. Alter announcing Quot non interference Quot by Congress As the Rule it fixes the precise time when alone and not before the people of a territory can intervene and act upon slavery and that when forming a Constitution for a state. It sums up the whole Power of the territories Over slavery thus a a resolved that we recognize the right of the people of the territories not the legislature whenever the number of their inhabitants justifies it to form a Constitution with or without slavery and be admitted into the Union upon terms of perfect Equality with the other thus it is defined that the right of the people of a territory to Settle the status of slavery begins Only when they begin to form a Constitution and not before. That is the Cincinnati platform Clear and palpable. And in no Wise liable justly to a double faced construction. And it fixes this Sovereign a it Ower of destroying or impairing property at the time of making a Constitution for a ver sound reason. It is tins a territorial legislature can raise no revenues from the people but is itself merely the paid agents and servants of the general government and therefore can have no Power to take property from citizens because it has no Power to compensate them for taking away their property. When it becomes a state it has that Sovereign Power and May justly exercise it because it will provide As in All state constitutions that private property shall not be taken away without adequate compensation. But plam As the Cincinnati platform is it has been subjected to misrepresentation and squatter sovereignty instead of popular sovereignty has been attempted to be interpolated in it. This one common sense reason Why it should be fairly explained. Moreover when the Cincinnati Pla Tibuni made there a judicial question not decided As to the precise time when the people of a territory should determine the slavery question for themselves under the Constitution. Now the supreme court since the adoption of the Cincinnati platform has decided that the Power does not begin till the Constitution begins. Hence the single question for the convention at Charleston whether they would make an explicit declaration on this Point explanatory of the True intent and meaning or it rth Arad South of the Cincinnati platform in this respect. Tell me not that a just and reasonable demand that it should be explained and put upon record beyond doubt or Cavil ? such is the uniform practice in All declarations of principle in religion or politics. That All that required touching this question of territorial Power Over the individual property rights of the settlers in a territory before it becomes a state and How can any fair minded Man say that it ought to be kept open to a double construction North and South ? As honest men we could not preach two opposite doctrines from the same text in the same Church and therefore the democratic party when reconstructing its platform to place a candidate upon it were bound to declare just Whit they meant by Quot popular sovereignty Quot As applied to the National democratic nominations. It will be seen by the following from the Fayette Volle carolinian that gov. Ellis the democratic and John Pool the opposition candidates for governor in North Carolina Are for Breckinridge Quot by advices from the mountains we learn that gov. Els on last monday at Waynesville Haywood county declared in favor of John c. Breckinridge and Joseph Lane. John Pool s Mouth is shut thereby As he has already declared in favor of the seeders at or n. L. O Brien Branch m. C. From North Carolina who advocated the nomination of Douglas is out tor Breckinridge Quot the Raleigh press is authorized to state that the Hon. L. O b Branch will support Breckinridge and Lane. Or. Branch stands with the entire democratic press of the state and truly represents the feelings and sentiments of the democracy of this District when he declares his adhesion to the National democratic ticket which will carry the state next this is the unkind destout of All. The Georgia democratic platform published at Atalanta says we Are credible informed that the Hon. Alexander Stephens has declared himself for Breckinridge and Lane. We Are heartily glad of it glad to know that there is but one distinguished georgian who will ride behind the free soil squatter of Illinois. Sex president Tyler has written a letter in which he comes out for Breckinridge and Lane. Hon. J. S. Barry the democratic candidate for governor of Michigan is reported to be for Breckinridge and Lane Hon. Cave Johnson of Tennessee supports the nomination of Breckinridge and Lane. A democratic convention held at Irvine Estill county ky., on the 5th inst., in which thirty one counties in the state were represented Nam Mously adopted resolutions endorsing Breckinridge and Lane and repudiating Douglas and Johnson. Andrew Johnson of Tennessee who wa.? one of Many candidates proposed by the Douglas interest for the vice presidency has surrendered to or. Breckinridge like or. Pryor Clingman Toombs and others who were regarded As among his supporters at the to Tribune. We learn that that distinguished Democrat Gen. Gideon j. Pillow will cordially support those statesmen whom he knew so intimately in Mexico and whose course he has since known so Well in their High position in the councils of the nation John c. Breckinridge and Joseph Lane. Gen. Pillow believed or. Douglas the most available Man with a United democracy to beat Black republicanism. But since the action at Baltimore he sees no Hope of carrying a state for him and he will not help or. Bell by drawing any strength from Ivor. Union. A Breckinridge paper is about to be started in St. Paul Minnesota. We have no doubt that a Large majority of the democracy of that state Are for by cock i Ridge and Lane and the Coli Quot be of the a. Paul Douglas Organ in assailing the most popular and Able democrats in the state assures us of the . We observe that the St. Peters slates7nan and the Scott county Democrat both hoist the Breckinridge Fly and Nail it to their . Paul daily times.

Herald. A Friend writing from Shelbyville says Quot i have taken some pains to ascertain the sentiments of several democrats from the Interior of this county and there seems to be More men delighted with the names of Breckinridge and Lane for candidates than i have Ever known since we learn from a gentleman just returned from Springfield that the democracy of Robertson have just had a rousing ratification meeting. There were Over a thousand persons present Gen. Quarles and or. Lenses two of the delegates to Baltimore made speeches. Their conduct in withdrawing from the Douglas convention and uniting with the delegates from the Southern and several of the Northern states in convention at Maryland Institute Hall cordially ratified. The nomination of Breckinridge and Lane enthusiastically endorsed and the platform adopted endorsed to the full. Speeches were also made by or. Bidwel Laud or. Union and adv. We place at the head of our columns the names of John c. Breckinridge of Kentucky and Gen. Joseph Lane of Oregon the nominees of the acceding convention at Baltimore. This a the Fourtly presidential canvass in which we have actively participated Dit ring our connection with the press Ami we can since rely say that we have never run up a Flag with names inscribed upon it which gave us greater we Bali love altogether that we Aje better a a leased with them As men and statesmen than we have before been with any ticket. It would be exceedingly difficult to obtain two who combined in a higher degree so Many elements of personal probity and purity United with Ualifi cations tor Tenn examiner. The Baton Rouge Louisiana advocate says the nomination of the Gallant Standard Beai ers a Hose names float at the head of the advocate has Arousell a degree of enthusiasm among the democracy of the South that we have never known there is Joy and Hope beaming from every face and animating every heart As the glorious tidings go Tarth to the people.
