Extracts from the address of the National democrats of the state of Iowa. Assembly fill in state convention at Davenport August 15m, 18g0. Nation a i. Demo cats and fellow citizens of Iowa a tiie National democratic a party is confused and distracted but it is not dead. It still lives and though wounded in the House of its friends it will yet recover its Birmer vigor and Pristine glory. Though we May sincerely deplore the a present unhappy condition of affairs we j it believe that the principles of True democracy must occasionally be tested and purified in the ordeal of trial and if need be temporary defeat. To be worthy of the High Honor and proud distinction of enrolment in the National democratic Quot Quot fierce preset patiently on. A a. Tonal duty trusting Ever to the rebounding Energy of ready at a moments Call Agam to Perd their lives in our tried principles and relying upon Quot the sober j the defence of their country yet Petty politicians and second thou it the Quot of the patriotic masses. To Al spoils men cowards and slaves to the will of one when we have studied carefully the history of our Man have the supreme meanness and audacity to Call country and have considered the great measures a Quot cd patriots Dis unionists and Quot worse than Benedict which have led to its present wonderful development we have Clearis recognized As the agent and instr a but let us look beneath such Billingsgate and the ment of this amazing Progress the great party around i catch words of &Quot.slave-codists, interventionists Etc.,&Quot which All our Boyish love and Manly Hopes have dus and learn from authoritative teachers what the catered. We have seen dark Clouds Quot Roll up upon our tonal democratic party does teach political sky tie after tic snapped asunder Church in his letter of acceptance wlm sch is but the logic after Church dissolved by geographical and sectional and spirit of the platform on which he stands John issues but we have always consoled ourselves with the j c. Breckinridge says we Quot hold to the doctrine of non reflection that while the National democratic party intervention by Congress or by a territorial Legisla remains intact the Union was Safe. But now alas Ture either to establish or prohibit slavery but assert this last great bulwark of the Constitution is threat fortified by the highest judicial tribunal in the Union ened and we Are passing through a crisis pregnant the Plain duty of the Federal government in All its with great events. Departments 1� secure when necessary to the citizens it is useless for us now to investigate the causes i of All the states the enjoyment of their property in the which have led to tie division of the democratic Par common territories As everywhere else within its to Crim nation and recrimination can do no Good. it is the part of Wisdom to recognize and Deal with to language can be plainer or More beautifully facts and to inquire for a remedy if indeed one can or. Breckinridge is not Only opposed to be found. ,1 i congressional action to establish or prohibit slavery. It is apparent to the most casual observer that the in Jug Jig opposed to territorial action for the same most profound anxiety pervades the Public mind. A pm pose. He does not wish to create or extend any violent and bitter political Campaign is before us. J a a a a rights not recognized by the Constitution. But men equally sincere m their respective political con i he wishes to protect and secure existing rights and like Vici ions formerly political Brothers but now almost True Patriot he is willing to look to tie Constitution sworn foes will wage War against each other. Excite a interpreted by the supreme court for the Defini ment will increase and men drunk with passion and Jujj and assertion of existing constitutional rights but is said to be Quot the Price of let us therefore each for ourselves carefully investigate every political question in order that we May intelligently exercise tie sacred right of suffrage. With these preliminary cautions and with an Earnest desire to seek truth rather than Victory we proceed to discuss the principles of the three great political organizations which Are now struggling for the control of the government with the question which in some of its phases is the All absorbing Issue. These parties we will name the Republican the Douglas and the National democratic. The Republican party regard slavery As a social moral and political evil and Are banded together in a crusade for its abolition. In their opposition to Quot the Extension Quot of slavery into territories now free Quot we quote their expressions they invoke the hostile legislation of Congress in opposition to the Plain provisions of the Constitution As authoritatively decided by the supreme court. They intend to Check and circumscribe slavery and the body of the party mean to attack it not Only in the territories but in the states and wherever it , regardless of consequences. The vital principle of this organization is ceaseless War upon slavery. Conservatism on this subject is political death to any Republican Leader and Sumner now is regarded As a More authoritative exponent of Republican principles than even Seward himself and the real aut Lior of the Quot irrepressible conflict Quot is the Standard bearer of this party. When you remind them of constitutional rights and of Blair it ions they resort to glittering generalities Ulicy speak of the so Irit of the age the Equality of the human race the declaration of Independence the Light of the nineteenth Century the dark Ages and denounce slavery As a crime against nature a sin against High heaven one of the relics of a barbarous age and their to such a seeming monster of Iii Ifju Ity is but the logical effect of such premises. Tie framers of the Constitution and the fathers of the re Quot Public they regard As Clever old fogies but As entire a behind the spirit of the present age. The republicans show their hands boldly and there is no equivocation ill their position. They Are open and unc oui Promise big free spoilers and they mean that slavery shall ice driven from the Republic. In the a com Plis lenient of this purpose they Are professedly for the use of Legal and constitutional Means Only but we have seen few Republican papers denounce John Brown s piratical raid into Virginia and we fear that Quot the rank and file Quot would not have mourned Over his Success. If this party succeeds they will be forced to strike at the i Pality of the states and the constitutional rights of the citizens and leave to the South but the alternative of ignoble submission and Union or Manly resistance and dissolution. The republicans hold that the Federal Constitution conferred absolute and unlimited Power of government Over the territories upon Congress and that it is not Only the right but the Ulutu of Congress in the exercise of such Power to prohibit the introduction of slavery in any Federal territory i next we have the Douglas party we mean no of i Fence by the term but use it by Way of distinction and to designate the followers of the squatter chieftain and whose demise whether natural or political will be the signal for its dissolution these men Are much Given Quot to lip service Quot they talk Eloi Pientl of the rights of the dear people when they want their votes they Jiro pose to Confer upon them Powers not recognize in in the Constitution they sing a ans to the Union and speak softly to their Southern Brethren in polished periods while at heart we mean the leaders they hate the South and Are ready for local spoil or personal advancement to join in a crusade against Southern rights. Semi abolitionists and slaves to popular clamor they denounce As Dis unionists and boaters the Gallant men who Are heroically fighting the Battles of the Union by firmly and boldly upholding the Constitution. Their Leader once a Gallant Democrat but who never Drew his sword or per led his life in defence of his country has the Folly to imagine himself a second Jackson and is now marshalling his forces for the contest of 1864, and Hopes for personal Victory Over the ruins of the great party to which he owes All his consequence. The Douglas party deny the Power of Congress either to establish or prohibit slavery in the territories. They hold to absolute non intervention on the Jimart of Congress with the subject but claim for the territorial Legislatures the right and authority to establish or prohibit slavery in the territories. They deny that slavery exists in the territories by virtue of the Constitution of the United states and say that it can Only have Legal existence there by virtue of a positive enactment in its favor made by a territorial legislature. They submit the whole question to the tender mercies of the varying Dumois of a territorial , and Quot Don t care whether it is voted up or they have male the novel discovery that the right of property can be decided at the ballot Box and that the offspring of congressional and Federal Power has More Quot inherent Quot authority than its Uvea Tor we next come to the National democratic party. When ascertained like an honest Man whenever and wherever such rights Are attacked and imperilled As the next president of the United states he will discharge his Quot Plain duty Quot by using the whole Federal government to defend and Quot secure Quot them. We hold that our Union Quot is a confederacy of equal Sovereign states for the pm roses enumerated in the Federal that whatever Quot the common prejudices and inflamed by insidious a peals from ignorant and designing men will be. Ready to crucify their very Brothers in the flesh. But the soothing influences of time and sober reflection will bring men Back to reason and they will then certainly Loath and discard the novel and delusive positions which they now cherish with so much fondness. The old land Marks will again be sought for and the old paths Wui again be trod with patient j a Ove Mnew the lds Quot in Trust for All the states Mist be Quot footsteps. Equally enjoyed by that Quot it controls the ter As old line democrats of the Pelterson school we Rit ories in Trust for All the that Quot nothing less have the profoundest Confidence in the popular judg than sovereignty can destroy or impair the rights of Niento and feel that the Only Safe Reliance for the safety j persons or that the Teri Lorial govern and perpetuity of this government rests in the Intel ments Are subordinate and temporary and not Sov licence and patriotism of the people. Avha Tever of Ereign and hence they cannot destroy or impair the imperfection there May be in our National govern rights of persons or that Quot while they ment How incomparably Sujie rior it is to any other continue to be territories they Are under the control government in the world ? founded upon the virtue and intelligence of the people it must increase in perpetual vigor and Beauty unless ignorance and vice shall be a permitted to sap the foundations of the Republic. We ought then carefully to scrutinize the teachings of our political leaders in order that we the True sovereigns May sit in impartial judgment upon their acts and recommendations. It is dangerous for us to yield our judgments and consciences implicitly of the keeping of any Man. The Bible warns us to put Quot no to Steven in princes Quot and Quot eternal vigilance Quot of Congress but that the Constitution nowhere confers on any Branch of the Federal government the Power to discriminate against the rights of the states or the property of their citizens in the that it therefore follows Quot that the citizens of All the states May enter the territories of the Union with their Pix Perty of whatever kind and enjoy it during their territorial condition without loss or hindrance either by Congress or by the Tsuboi Diate territorial governments Quot we aver on the one hand Quot the absence of sovereignty in the territorial governments Quot and on the glorious Constitution this is the Protection which we other ave deny the Power in Congress to invoke for our Southern Brethren As for and property or Quot to discriminate against the rights of the this is the Protection of the maintenance and securing states or the property of their of which for a very Section of our common country we wage War against territorial sovereignty As hero this Day solemnly k de ourselves shall be Well As congressional prohibition. We esteem them impartially extended to every american citizen or equally unconstitutional and equally destructive of tie else we will not Only sustain those whose constitutional Cardinal doctrines of state rights state sovereignty rights Are invaded by so Eedeh and vote but in the and state Equality and equally calculated to Elan hour of Battle and Blotny if need be we will sustain Ger the fraternal relations which should exist Between them with our swords.

We would that this Glori the truth we seek to be guided in our a political dark Ous Union with its teeming associations its amazing Ness by tie Light of the Constitution determined to Progress and its future Promise should be forever pre follow whence it leads.

Douglas in the special telegraphic correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette says Douglas is expected Here this afternoon. He Avill rest a Day and then go to Baltimore and Frederick Maryland. He has Wen mainly received by Bell men South who have finished All the enthusiasm and All the receptions. All their demonstrations Wei a of course insincere As they intend to give him no a ote.

To so Peak of him As a Quot Canander it is not necessary of vindicate him from that charge. His letters have been proverbial for their accuracy in political a speculation. And have been More widely copied than any other Leitis written from the Federal their author is Liot judge Douglas Secretary As the Yancey Organ charged. The motive of the co7�mer- a it introducing our correspondent is obviously one of malignant Delsi appointment and spleen. It inaugurated the system of special dispatcher but for a Onie cause it has fallen behind and allo aved its Cote Jamji Aries the a Hole Field. Having been in gloriously beaten it takes Refuge in snarls of rage Ajr inst its More fortunate Cincinnati ent hirer. Ave charge that this Cori respondent of the enquirer signing himself Quot Cleveland Quot is a Fel Loav named or at least by the name of Sherillan for he May haae As Many aliases As a horse to Lief for aught we know to the contrary. This Sheridan was the Pula ate Secretary of or. Douglas avas brought Avith him into Ohio last fall to report his j a Ches. And did report his a Ooster so Leech. In which or.

And in Telegram thing falsehoods to other a apers Tolian in writing letters Tor and Rei Orting speeches of the candidate Tor president av1o pays him his salary. This Sheridan is the same Muir cured whelp that started the canard that Imp.

Of retiring from the contest in order of attend to his private affairs in the hoj e of retrieving his feb Rennes and becoming the demo i Atic candidate for president four Yeai a hence. The reason achy we know that Sheridan is the Man that started the canard ave can give having an account direct from one Avo avas present alien the idea avas conceived but name ave Are not at Liberty to use.

Ave have Noav no doubt of the sincerity of his preference for Breckinridge and the integrity of his purpose Avith regard to the pending contest. We have no doubt that Gen.
