Douglas friends exhaust All their arguments in attempting to prove the Quot regularity Quot of his nomination. The claim has been so Olen and so completely refuted that it is not necessary to dwell upon it any longer. It was a gathering democratic in everything but principles numerous in All things but representation performing squatter sovereignty to two shilling houses at front Street theatre. It was Quot much ado about nothing Quot by competent performers. Quot i had As Lief the town Cher had spoken Quot a platform As these supernumerary democrats.

To whom was that invite in weal Tion to appoint delegates extended ? to the Denio a Gamester they present a striking example of How racy alone of course.

A a a Tate of Illinois having received two thirds of of influence who have for years professed Distin f s a his Conven Ion is hereby de a dared in accordance wit i tie uniform customs and gushed dissatisfaction at the proceedings of the democratic party. They presented a pleasing variety of political vagaries United by great unanimity of of Pix sit Ion to democracy. Their leaders were men whom Fortune had once Given a position in our ranks for which nature had at an Early Day disqualified them rules of Fri Mer democratic National conventions the regular nominee of the democratic party of the United states for the office of president of the United two thirds of All the electoral College no not men of Long retired Reni stations remarkable for the by any Means. But Quot two thirds of All the votes Given Fidelity with which they had sought Success and the convention Quot Felicity with which they Iliad failed. Political exiles Ever eager in revolutionary times to relieve the tedium of their banishment by re asserting their claims to Long abolished titles and confiscated estates. O they certainly deserve some credit however for the perseverance with which they have waged an Quot irrepressible conflict Quot with Public opinion relative to their own merits. A majority of these gentlemen generously released the democracy from any annoyance in the premises by convening at a hotel and with Mutual interchange of puffery delegating one another. The balance Labouring under the embarrassment of a first with the party they were ambitious of representing modestly sought some provincial town where under the protective obscurity of their own Fame and Rural districts they went through the motions of a div socratic convention manifesting considerate mimic Talent considering their inexperience with the subject matter. These gentlemen came to Baltimore led by or. Pierre Soule that Arcon Talma of their boards in the Pride and pomp of his thes Pian tones and Bastard heroics in some instances ashamed in Many instances amused at the impudence of their own pretensions. Their claims instead of being summarily rejected were referred to a committee on credentials. In Stormy times the worst rubbish rides jux a the surface. Upon that committee i notice the name of s. A. Hall of logans Wrt. Sam Hall a Delegate in a National democratic convention Sara Hau a member of the committee on credentials to determine the of the democracy it is one of those eco an open and bold violation of the Charleston Resolution an open and bold confession in their own records that they did not have two thirds of the electoral College present. What were the reasons assigned for the passage of this Resolution simply and plainly that they had not 202 votes and they might As Well acknowledge it first As last. I quote from the official report of their proceedings Quot or. Dunning of Indiana inquired How it would be possible for this convention to give the candidate a two thirds vote of the electoral College when there was not that number in the convention that of itself was a sufficient reason for the Resolution. They owed it to the honest democratic voters of the United states Nineteen twentieth a of whom if asked to Day who was their first Choice for the president of the United states would respond Stephen a. Douglas of or. Gittings of Maryland protested As did Hoge of Virginia against the adoption of the Resolution As being a violation of the two thirds Rule. But in vain. There was no help for it they had not two thirds. The Resolution must be adopted. By a vote of states by a Call of ayes and nays absurd cuestion8 it was adopted on motion of Craig of Missouri Quot by a big old democratic yell Quot what a decorous and charming manner was this of nominating a candidate for president a tribe of comanches fresh from a Scalp Hunt would have selected a Leader with greater dignity. Lacking Over Twenty of the nominating number without a president without a quorum on half the trusted picture of the Motley troupe democracy in the front Street theatre. Lament to the Senate with Yancey s sagacity Doug Liete Are the men who shorn of their Power but Las would not not now occupy a position which while for mischief have endeavoured by personal hatred of it destroys his past obliterates All his Hopes of the fun the resent democratic administration to coerce the Ture. Democratic party into the sup Ortof its bitterest Eno on the whole we have no particular objection to the my. It would be unjust to omit stating the reason As title signed by or. Douglas himself for accepting a Iio Niin i the last charge brought against or. Breckinridge action under such circumstances. Is that he Ashli Atco with the know no tilings. The he says in his letter of acceptance that his Nomin charge originated in a letter from ill. John Savage to action having been made without Quot any Agency inter a Hon. Henry a. Wife Ference or procurement on his part he feels that he As it is not to be exerted of course that one of is in Honor and duty bound to this is hand you Ever heard of or. Savage before it May be As some. Since the Brave old pasan Days of Rome Well to remark that his name does Hisiu great injustice when the conscript fathers malt be patriotism Inin Portal. He is a very harmless inoffensive Little gentleman we have not had a More striking instance of disinter whom the a Blic has always treated with generous ested self sacrifice. Evidently the senator stands neglect. He is the author of one tragedy that was alone. Modern degeneracy has not reached him. It read and damned and one Book that was Danied was vulgarly supposed that or. Douglas nomination without being read. Or. Savage it seems is worry was the result of ten years of solicitation and in ing his tender intellect with politics. It is the old Trig an unlimited Sale of political indulgences and Story of Penelope s suitors tugging at the Bow of Ulys Post obits an attentive forgetfulness of former Prin ses. The entire basis for the charge against or. Caples and an enthusiastic insincerity in future pledges Breckinridge is contained in a statement made by him assisted by a Liberal exhibition of Belmont and Brandy in a Public speech that Quot he would rather vote for one but this of course must be an error which it is to be of his own countrymen than a foreigner All other regretted however has become so popular and Iradi things being Titis is certainly a very grave Cable in the american mind. The Only wonder is offence consider ing that in the Verv next sentence he How in these Days of presidential aspirants when so denounced the know nothing organization upon High Many bold bad men Are devoting All their Uii hallowed moral and constitutional grounds energies to the attainment of that High Honor it i <1111 afraid a foreigner one of or. Savage s own should have been thrust upon so unobtrusive Minos class an irishman for instance would t vote for one tentation a a gentleman As or. Douglas. Verily the of his own countrymen in preference to anybody else Quot gods take care of Quot All other things being equal Quot or Une Tuai. It must or Douglas has always paraded his Devotion to be a mistake about their Ever doing such things. If principle As one of his most prominent Virtues but it that be know nothing ism then make the most of it. Was never so strikingly illustrated As in the Nomina having thus briefly alluded to the character of the Tion of senator Fitzpatrick by his friends at Balti attacks upon our candidates i wish to Call your attn More. Having sheltered himself behind the glorious Tion for a moment to a recent Douglas Opidi Sioui of our uncertainty of that celebrated double Lentendre the platform an opinion which being of an official a Cincinnati platform it was Only requisite to place his Ture cannot be repudiated. The Breckinridge Piat political Antipode on the same ticket to have every form As you arc All aware is simply the majority re thing satisfactorily arranged. Port of the Cliar Leston convention. The Southern senator was to Lead the Cavaliers of that report a Frank statesman like declaration of the Cotton states while Douglas marshalled the round Princi it Les the rejection of which was the cause of so Heads of new England. Fitzpatrick having repeat cession at Charleston was denounced by the Douglas edly repudiated Quot my great principle Quot must of course delegates As a Quot slave code Quot a an expression which they be popular among the democracy while the Illinoisan spoke Quot tripping by on the Tongue Quot not having the by reiterating his advocacy thereof would make fear most Remote idea of its meaning sup used to be some Ful inroads into the Republican ranks. The one hav i thing especially Foi Ocious. To anyone credulous ing voted for the Davis resolutions and the other enough to believe their twaddle the majority report against them one having advocated congressional was As ruthless As a piratical league and As Lawless As Protection and the other unfriendly legislation a mag a code of the comanches. If cent latitude for every div Cristy of opinion was this document however afterwards proved so a thus presented and it Only required a judicious Selec septable to the National democracy that it became Tion of localities to insure Success. There existed but necessary for the opposite faction not Only to add a one obstacle to this scheme an obstacle the nature codicil to their last will and testament identical in of which being out if the Range of or. Douglas sys principle of which anon but also to mollify Timeir system of tactics was entirely overlooked namely the tem of attack upon it very materially. Tie Douglas honesty of senator Fitzpatrick.

His name added great strength to their ticket seems a special aversion to self evident truths an and its absence still More. He was a distinguished aversion manifested clearly in Many statements in statesman three Days before Johnson s name was known their own manifesto and entirely consistent with their but from the hour that glorious obscurity arose from enumeration of or Douglas Virtues and their approx the horizon Quot decorating and cheering the elevated Val of his dogmas.

This demand something succinct Clear and put in Ted like selection of Johnson is an Apt illustration of the much the Wicki Ille Resolution for instance a Fine Mac boasted Quot regularity Quot of the Douglas ticket and shows i Flecknoe production to which no human ingenuity How far any Loyal Democrat is bound by his demo. Can Ever give two meanings or even one. Cratic fealty to Supit Ort such leaders. Ten or fifteen i cannot refrain from Reading you. Gentlemen in gentlemen Quot urged by hunger and request of friends Quot this connection an extract from the speech of a Dis met one night in the dining room of the National to Ting Ishad democratic politician on the requisites of a Tel at Washington when having disposed of a cold col-1 regular nomination. I read from the reported speech lation they proceeded to dispose of the vice presi in the Richmond enquirer of july 20, 1852 Dency. As there were no aspirants Abr the Honor of on the 9th of july 1852. The Hon Stephen a. This Post prandial nomination their labor would have Douglas addressed the democracy of Richmond a. Been Liht out the difficulty finding any one to even a a the african Church. From the speech prepared by accept it when preferred. Finally Afler a voracious i self published in the enquirer of july 20, 1852, acid anxious session during which every Bone was make the following extracts. It will be remember picked and Dernier resort Ninffa room candidate a two if note nominee this Quot lame Iho sent commenting every name canvassed hey chose As a go that at the Baltimore whig convention of 1852, it or. H. \. Johnson. And now this i North demanded the nomination of general Scott Candida Tel a Waif this Quot Lanie the South resisted the demand. C it conclusion Quot to a cold supper and a secret the sectional aspect of that nominal in a. Caucus is proclaimed the Only regular democratic deplorable results that would come from it or. Doug Standard bearer to oppose whom is to dissolve the i a Gaid Union. Or. Johnson s qualities for Lunning Are in perfect Quot Ell. Gen. Scott received the nomination Natt keeping with the manner in which he was put upon i Mously according to the official or weddings of the the course. He led the secession from the state convention. Laughter fellow citizens did you convention in Georgia hence the Grace with which Ever hear of a unanimous nomination which was made his supporters so glibly charge us with being secede re. In a Defiance of the fifty times repeated protest and re he took the stump against Lowell Cobb As the Dis-1 Mons trances of the delegations from one half the Union candidate for governor hence the refreshing states of the Union represented m the convention piquancy with which his associate accuses us with i every Southern delegation voted against him More seeking to destroy our Quot free he was rejected by the Baltimore convention As a Dis organi Zer and a bogus Delegate hence the Peculiar appropriateness of endorsing Liim As orthodox by placing Lim on a presidential ticket. He announced in his Georgia report that slavery in the territories was Quot upon the same footing As other property Quot and entitled to the Quot same recognition and Protection in the legislative judicial and executive departments of government Quot hence the pungency with which his followers can denounce our platform As a he proclaims that Quot neither the general government nor any territorial government can destroy or impair the right to slave property in the common territories Quot hence the delightful Concord of opinion that must exist Between Hii of and the great Patentee of Quot unfriendly of rare Johnson i it is under the leadership of such men As these that the Donglas ites charge us with Multi aim and disunion sentiments. There is nothing equating it since falstaff complained of cowards. Our candidates Are both pro slavery men in the Vul if acceptation of the terms that is they Are for equal rights in the territories and Equality of the states and while they do not pretend to have discovered any Quot great principle Quot they prop Cee to maintain inviolate those embodied in the Constitution As expounded by the supreme court. Than Fify times Day after Day and night after night and yet the nomination was unanimous. Great laughter the nomination of general Scott therefore presents to the american people this extra Ortli nary anomaly. For the ii St time in the history of our party contests has a sectional nomination Ever been forced upon either of the two great parties you May talk about danger to the Union growing out of partisan strife and political contests you May tremble at scenes through i which we All recently passed connected with the slavery agitation yet there was nothing in All that so perilous to the safety of the Union As a sectional nomination to the presidency where the North demanded the nomination of a particular Man on a sectional Issue. And the delegation from Ever it Southern state without exception resisted the nomination As dangerous to their rights and institutions. A nomination forced upon the South by the file soil Wing of the whig party North is now presented to the american people As a unanimous Quot it matters not whether the North forced the nomination upon the South or the South upon the North the danger consists in the fact that a territorial line divides men s opinions that Northern men were one Way and Southern men another. But after tie nomination is made we Are told that it was a fair Compromise. Because the South received the platform and a so. 29. But did any one advocate the re opening of the african slave tra it be in the Breckinridge convention has either of our candidates plea led himself to sup Xiu t no one whose Quot principles Are inconsistent Quot with a slave code ? has either of them boasted in the Senate of the United states that he had Given More territory to slave labor than any other Public Man a has either of them Ever introduced a Bill into Congress proposing to make abolition assemblages an indictable offence and to put Down anti slavery agitation by criminal prosecution in the Federal courts if the Douglas its have Little argument it must be granted they have a desperate fecundity of epithets. One of the serious malediction conclusive at once of the original purity of the Douglas ticket and the actual sin of the Breckinridge nomination is the the a item Reserve where father Giddings fatten i charge that we Are Yancey ites. Fiat May or May in idolized supremacy sent a Constellation of strolling not be offence let As see. The Best reason stars to the thespian Assembly. Wherever repel it the a highest eloquence a courage to meet Lica ism had Sway Sci matter sovereignty was in the All new Comers in the political Field and skill to con ascendant. It seemed As if the victories of John c. Found to Lien Eminence by Universal Concession fore Fremont had bloomed into the mob Cracy of Stephen sight daring Devotion irreproachable in private life a. Douglas. I reliant adventurer everywhere Means simply we. Add to these a retinue of funny Little fat gentlemen l. Yancey with big canes imposing stomachs and the Are traits admired by All men. With the necks who had come Down from the provincial towns personal preferences of or. Yancey and his in do the North the candidate under the direction of men who defy and spit Ruixin the platform. Thus we have Winfield Scott before us Lor the presidency. After mature deliberation he proceeds to accept the platform and to write the letter which he had prom ised or. Archer in the private note that was found in Botts breeches laughter you will observe How sarcastic and felicitous the gentleman is on Quot sectional nominations Quot a How he deplores a nomination forced Union the South against its fitly times repeated protests. The entire extract is a treat considering the source from whence it comes and the aptness of its contents to the present position of the gentleman himself. Whenever any one denies the sectional character of or. Douglas nomination just x Likely Call his attention to this portion of his record. And yet we arc told in the face of All these facts that or. Douglas is the unanimous nominee of the democratic party. I have heard it so claimed in this House in a ver unique organization called a Quot Young Hickory club a Young Hickory composed of some Youthful individuals As judge Stuart or. Jerol Anian s. A. Hall and other refreshing lads. It is a Public entertainment to hear Vliem talk one might a Uppole to look upon the Young gentlemen that Thev were somewhat advanced in jeans. But you have on v to hear them so Peak to perceive All the freshness and inexperience of youth. In the old Nursery piece Quot void would scarce expect one of my age to speak in Public Oil the in Innocci ice of ability in Ler Dailey of opinion in Sportive awkwardness of Elou Tion they fully Denion Strate their qualifications As members of the a a Young Hickory it is said Quot a Little learning is a dangerous thing Quot but if you listen to these youngsters discussing polities you will readily perceive that perfect is perfectly compatible wit i limited information. It is needless to add that the Young Hickory club talks much about a a immediately after this nomination the senat Irr set about in search of his aged Mother and Ever since he has been wandering about like the tribe of Israel in search of the Proni Iscil land. One would sup Ose. To Sec the Dit Lerent Dii actions he has taken and the re heated and anxious Cik juries he has jut birth about his venerable Parent that a whole orphan Ashim had broken Loose and each individual foundling avas on a pilgrimage to the maternal shrine. I live been requested by the friends of a Bereave to Mother to re us the following advertisement in Hopes that some one May be Able to furnish the required information Quot left Washington. D. A. Some time in july to go Home to his Mother in Nev York. He has not reached his Mother who is very him. He has been seen at Iii Ladelphia new York City Hartford ct., and at a Elam bake in re Toile Island. He has been heard from at Boston Portland Augusta and Bangor Maine. From some expressions he dropped it is feared that he has become insane upon a subject he Calls Jagt Pular sovereignty. He is about five feet nothing in height and about the same in diameter the other Way. He has a red thee Short h is and a Large belly. Answers to the name of Little giant talks a great Deal and very loud always about himself. Has an idea that he is a candidate for the presidency. Had on. Wien he left drab pants a White Vest and Blue coat with brass buttons the fail is very near the ground. Quot any information c oncoming him will be gratefully received by his afflicted Mother. For Furterer particulars address Quot Ari it , new York a Wilms a. Go Max the remainder of the speech was devoted to some remarks upon the state and county tickets and the a fibres that Ivor. Fitch had observed among the Douglas sub leaders and some of the candidates to prevent the people coming to excellent letter for every one to read. The to allowing letter says the Philadelphia Ledger was written by Daniel Ebster Over eight years ago. It originates in homely topics and proceeds from those to others of More general import and duties of a Patriot under the Constitution and the Union. I Quot he great practical sense of the constitutional expounded was not More evident in the Mode of illustration than it is in the which inspires every word and the True National sentiment which it seeks to inculcate. Or. Webster had grown up with the Union he had seen it daily giving strength and Power to the nation. His comprehensive mind saw that the liberties and Security of the people and the Prosperity of tie country rest upon the foundation of the states with the faithful Observance of the obligations that each state owes to the other. Hence the earnestness with which he seeks to impress this fact in the familiar illustration which his letter nothing probably has been written u a it a our constitutional obligations which comes Home so practically so forcibly and so strikingly. It is a valuable lesson such As can come Only from a Patriot and statesman and As an illustration of political duty it is Woith volumes of exposition. Its frankness its generous sentiment ail conscientious sense of duty must commend it o every Reader from Hanifi. Wk15sti k to John . W a till i in ton March 17, 1852. A Vijit Taylor to ahead.
