Racy. Wherever the Dougl Sites have possessed numerical strength they have excluded the friends of Breckinridge from any participation in the proceedings of j their conventions and have formally read them out j of the party. The friends of maj. Breckinridge have j Pui sued a precisely opposite policy they have sought to re unite the party on a basis of Union satisfactory and honorable to All. They have extended the Olive j Branch of peace to the friends of or. Douglas but their overtures for conciliation have been indignantly spurned and rejected. In Pennsylvania the regular state Central committee a majority of whom Are the supporters of Breckinridge on the disruption of tie party at Baltimore proposed that the electoral ticket selected previous to the disruption of the party should be sustained both by the supporters of Breckinridge and Douglas. There was no irregularity in the selection of the electoral ticket it was composed alike of friends of Breckinridge and Douglas. A cordial Union upon it of All the parties opposed to the Black republicans would beyond doubt have secured its Success. The Douglas men however rejected the proposition and nominated a straight out Douglas tickets not with any Hope of securing the state for Douglas but for the sole purpose of dividing and defeating the democracy. In new York even the friends of or. Douglas conceded the necessity of United action against the Black republicans and a proposition allowing ten electors to Breckinridge was acceded to by a sub committee of j Dougl Sites. Douglas however about the time the i Union was being consummated visited new York and j his friends acting under his advice rejected the prop-1 position of the friends of or. Breckinridge the Only result of which can be to ensure the defeat of the democracy in that state. The same spirit seems to have actuated the Douglas men of Kentucky in the recent state election. In that state they not Only abandoned the democratic party and bolted the regular nominations but at a single stride landed themselves in the Camp of the opposition lists. How different has been the course of the friends of maj. Breckinridge in new York and Indiana they offered to the Douglas men honorable terms of Union. The propositions were rejected. In Pennsylvania they pursued the same policy of conciliation and offered terms upon which both parties might have successfully United but again the Douglas men rejected the overtures for United action against the Black republicans. In Tennessee where the friends of major Breckinridge have a Large and unquestioned majority Desir Rous for securing the Harmony of the party they have placed two of the supporters of or. Douglas on the electoral ticket. A proposition has recently been made in Kentucky to Call a convention for the purpose of harmonizing our party and thereby securing the Success of our ticket in that state. The Ixia Siville Democrat the chief Organ of Douglas in the South however opposes the proposition and declares its determination to oppose any terms of Union Between the friends of Douglas and Breckinridge. In this state the Dougl Sites have formally read the friends of or. Breckinridge out of the party. If the democratic party is Defeated it be by the reckless Quot Rule or ruin Quot policy of Douglas and his friends. They have rejected All overtures for Union j if we arc Defeated they and they alone have to Bear the fearful . Douglas As a Black Republican. As or. Douglas is so Apt at answering questions to 1 a a nok i a Aiqun q held replying to accusations it scams strange that he Douglas ism in 1854 and 18bo a strange has not then notice of the direct and unequivocal Yoonsi Stony. Statement recently made by or. Trumbull in one of. I his Illinois speeches to the effect that he or. Doug it not be denied for a moment that the doctrine Las had proposed to give his adhesion to the Black of squatter sovereignty Means that a territorial be Republican party on condition that he should receive Iri Slature Lias the i Ower to exclude slave re from such the support of that party in his canvass for re election pc Quot Quot Quot.

It is also a known fact that a the go tement deliberately made in reply to a Dis Douglas papers South As As All the stump orators a a a act question by or. Douglas colleague in the sen of the Douglas a party claim that the Nebraska Bill ate. We have preferred not to notice the fact before contains squatter sovereignty As enunciated by judge this moment because we presumed that or.

In his in Cin Uati Speerli or. Douglas said Quot examine the Bills and search the records and you find that the great principle which underlie those measures is the right of the people of each state and each territory while a territory to decide the a Lavery question for ? we have examined the records and can find Volpi ing therein to show that Congress in that Bill Ever in he re follows the statement of or. Trumbull which has been heretofore published in the old line guard. This statement comes in a form so minute and Cir a Una to tial it is so thoroughly consistent with the partial revelations made by or. Kellogg last Winter and with the position accepted by or. Douglas at the period referred to that it bears Ltd its face the indications of probability. That probability is strengthened into certainty now that the assertion has been suffered to pan Thieu a the country it can not de doubted by impartial Man that or. Do Tiglas did really attempt to Bart away his principles or what Little remnant of them he had left in return for a seat in the Senate to be conferred by Black Republican votes. Had the Black thought the game Worth the candles had tiie not been fully convinced that the Power of the numbers was great enough to secure them a Vietty throughout the North without the necessity of por Chaang the trifling support which Douglas could bring to them or. Douglas would be now a vigorous if not an Earnest labourer in the Black Republican Field. Or. Slidell s prophecy that in one year or.

J Kentucky rules a och Pat Don t you see How the squatters Are Crow i the contrast. Ithe Man who made the Douglas platform expounds it. It is unnecessary to introduce governor Robert c. Wickliffe of Louisiana to our readers. They All know him. He it was who added the Southern a Lank to the Douglas platform at Baltimore. He like Soule is beyond All question a squatter Leader. He beyond All question knows what Are the real feelings of the Douglas party in regard to a dissolution of the Union and has a right to express them. Let him Tell us what he thinks of the Union. We quote from his inaugural address an official document Quot i do not wish to speak lightly of the Union next to the Liberty of the citizen and the sovereignty of the states i regard it As the primary object of patriotic desire it should be dear to us As a sentiment and dearer to us for its real value. But it cannot have escaped observation that the hold Wirich this l Ulon once had upon the affections of the South has been materially weakened and that its dissolution is now frequently spoken of if not with absolute levity vet with positive indifference and occasionally As desirable. Quot some thirty years ago when a distinguished citizen of the United states said it was time to calculate the value of the Union a general burst of Wiull Gatlon Lirou ghost the country was the patriotic Ros x now. Good men and Wise men do calculate the value of the Union and the Public heart does not seem to be aggrieved by the comparatively Low estimate that is Sonie tines placed upon Good men and Wise men do calculate the value of the Union and sometimes put a comparatively Low estimate upon it do they ? but hear him again he invites an unlawful combination of the slave states for resistance to the Federal government Quot unless the Progress of this insanity is checked the Union soon be a matter of history. Unity of action on the part of the South a determination calmly made and fearless Quot executed to permit no further encroachments can alone perpetuate the Union of these states and that Union is not Worth preservation if we of the South Are to be incessantly engaged in and out of Congress in defending ourselves from the attacks of those who use the Union As a Means of assault upon us. Quot it has therefore become the painful duty of every slave state distinctly to declare that no further aggression be permitted and to invite the co operation of every state in vindicating to the last extreme the rights secured by the Constitution and which arc immeasurably of More value than the Constitution hear him once More. He becomes rampant for a dissolution a Postow lenient of it May make oui selves and our children the meanest of vassals Quot it is worse than useless to disguise from ourselves the tendency of events. Heretofore the safety of the South has been in party now its Only Hope of safety is in party let us aim at a higher Security and that without a change in the Constitution can be found Only in at least an equilibrium in the Senate. The North struggles to destroy the equilibrium that she Mav have a like Ascendancy in every Branch of the government we must have Ower somewhere o protect ourselves. The North demands superiority not for its Protection but for our Union. Whenever therefore it shall be made to appear that we Are not permitted to guard ourselves from wrong whenever it Sigall be made appear that no More slave states Are to be admitted into the Union the time for a separation have arrived postpone it and it May be impossible ourselves and our children May become the meanest of vassals under the forms of constitutional Law and we shall have forfeited deservedly our heritage of Freedom and the memory of our ancestors be but the Brand of our own the Quot Scarlet letter Quot pales to a Milky Hue beside the fierce Dis unionism of the maker of the Douglas platform. The awful Yancey the dreaded Yancey the frightful Yancey that sits like a Nightmare on the popular mind becomes quite tame and insipid when placed Side by Side with one of the great leaders of the Douglas Yeoman.

Or in the manner in which the Senate elect giving to each senator a vote we have the following i result j for Joseph Lane. .37 i for Hannibal hamlin25 j for Iler Schel v. Johnson. 2 for Edward Everett. 2 therefore it is apparent that Breckinridge can be elected in the House if the votes of Tennessee Ken j Tucky Maryland and North Carolina Only four slave i states Are added to what he has already and the Gal Lant general Lane can carry the Senate As it stands against Hamlin Johnson and Everett combined. While it is equally True that Bell and Douglas together have not the strength to get a majority for either in the House no not even if All the Southern states were to lend them their undivided vote upon what ticket then should the South concentrate its strength to beat Lincoln and Hamlin the change san Pongee is. Facts speak louder than words Elivd figures Don t Liew democrats read what follows and heedless of the clamor of demagogues decide for yourselves which of the tickets now m the Field has the Best Chance of being elected Over the Black Republican candidates. Article Xii of the amendments to the u. S. Constitution prescribes the Mode of election Viz article electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for president and vice president one of whom at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves. They shall name in their ballots the person voted for As president and in distinct ballots the person voted for As vice president and Altey shall make distinct lists of All persons voted for As president and of All persons voted for As vice president and of the number of votes for each which lists they shall sign and certify and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United states directed to the president of the Senate. The president of the Senate shall in the presence of the House of representatives open All the certificates and the votes shall be counted. The person having the greatest number of votes for president shall be the president if such number be a majority of the a Hole number of electors appointed and if no person have such majority then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for As president the House of representatives shall choose immediately by ballot the president. But in choosing the president the vote shall be taken by states the representation from each state having one vote a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two thirds of the states and a majority of All the states shall be necessary to a Choice. And if the House of representatives shall not choose a president whenever the right of Justice shall devolve upon them before the 4th Day of March next following then the vice president shall act As president As in the Case of the death or other constitutional disability of the president. The person having the greatest number of votes As vice president shall be the vice president if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed and if no person have a majority then from the two highest numbers on the list the Senate shall choose the vice president. A quorum for the Pur Tose shall consist of twb4hird8 Oahe whole number of senator and a it majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a Choice. The 36th Congress upon whom this election would devolve under a constitute in is already elected. The preferences of its members Are known. We sub join what would be the result of Missouri democratic state convention. Col. Snyder from the committee on resolutions reported the following whereas the National democratic convention which assembled at Charleston in april last and adjourned to Baltimore failed to nominate candidates for the presidency and vice presidency of the United states according to the rules there adopted and the usages of the party and whereas the Quot delegates to thai convention separated and formed two conventions each presenting to the country candidates for the presi Plency and vice presidency and a platform of principles thereby leaving to the people their Choice of candidates and principles to represent them a we therefore declare As follows first. That we still adhere with unfaltering Fidelity to the principles of constitutional government which the democratic party has Ever us held principles which were Laid Down in the Virginia and Kentucky resolutions of 1798-99 which were ably expounded j by or. Madison in his report to the legislature of Virginia which were carried by gliomas Jeff i soil into the Federal government which Weie faithfully acted upon by the Long line of Deino critic presidents who succeeded the great founders of the party which were endorsed and illustrated by Andrew Jackson and which recognizing and upholding As they do the Equality of the states and the equal rights of tie citizens of the several states if faithfully adhered to not Only perpetuate the Union of the states but disseminate its blessings equally and beneficially throughout the Borders of the conf Deracy. Second upon the subject of slavery in the Tempo Riesz the question which led to the disruption of the National convention the democratic party of Missouri holds the same principles that we held in 1849, i when we with marked unanimity declared through our representatives in the legislature that Quot the right to prohibit slavery in any territory belongs exclusively to the people thereof and can Only be exercised by them in forming their Constitution for a state government or in their Sovereign capacity As an Independent we hold the same principles that we held in 1852 and 1856, Ashen we made substantially the same declaration through our state convention. We hold the same principles which we held in 1859, As unanimously declared by our representatives in the legislature by solemn resolutions and reaffirm and continue to stand upon the platform of principles adopted by the state convention assembled at Jefferson City in april 1860 and we declare our unaltered and steadfast Devotion to and endorsement of the platform reported by the majority of the committee at the Charleston convention and subsequently adopted by the National democratic convention assembled at the Maryland Institute in Baltimore in june last. Believing that John c. Breckinridge and Joseph Lane nominated by the representatives of the democratic states of the Union for president and vice president faithfully and zealously enforce these principles in the administration of government we unhesitatingly accept them As the candidates of the democracy of Missouri in the pending presidential canvass. The resolutions were received with loud applause and were passed result. Ivo. 32. Arrest the danger by appealing to the Dougl Sites to make with them one common Effort to defeat the democracy by a Union upon Lincoln of the entire free soil sentiment of the state. We have alway s feared that this would be the final result of Douglas ism and that Ever advocate of squatter sovereignty would sooner or later find himself in the Black Republican ranks. Our fears Are being realized sooner than we anticipated. The squatters de Spiering of Success with Doug Las Are already retaking themselves in crowds to Lincoln and we fear very much that the latter not Only Lead Douglas in Missouri but poll a very heavy vote thirty thousand at least. We Appeal to our friends every where to be on the Alert to direct their attacks against this new and now More dangerous foe to persuade Ever True Democrat who has been deceived into the support of Douglas by the Felse cry of Quot regular nominee Quot to come to the support of the Only democratic candidate the Only Man that can defeat Lincoln the Only i indicate who is True to the . Louis bulletin. That the state convention has Iven the death blow to squatter sovereignty in Missouri is obvious to every one. The Dougl Tes themselves admit the fact by their disconsolate faces and dejected bearing while the jubilant countenances and smiling looks of the democracy attest their confident belief that Missouri give her electoral vote without any doubt to the democratic candidate John c. Breckinridge. The Sharp sighted republicans perceive it too. And seek to first principles. The Richmond enquirer has Publ Ihfe the to allowing paragraph Quot the Dinoi Ratic party with John c. Breckinridge As its Standard bearer occupies re Eliely the same position that it dec pie i in 1800, with or. Jefferson As Ife Standard bearer. It adheres rigidly to in get principles to the Constitution in the letter and it Pipit in which it was and it is this which has Ever Givin to the democratic party its Unity strength and perpetuity. At the outset of our Gove ziment the people became divided in opinion a it to How the Constitution should be interpreted. Some were for a Constitution which tended to draw into the vortex of congressional legislation subjects foreign to its original intent to centralize and consolidate the government of the states. Others were for a Lonstrup Cimon prohibiting Congress from the exercise of doubtful Powers and confining its action to such As were expressly granted to it by the Constitution. These received the name of democrats their opponents were called federalists. The doctrine of strict construction has Ever been the characteristic Doc Trine of the democratic party if has always adhered to this Lino of policy which. In rep at de instances has been demonstrated As the True policy by which our government should a be one of the most remarkable instances occurred during the admin iteration of Andrew Jackson. Previous to his inauguration. Congress Hail ran riot in the exercise of unconstitutional Powers. It had usurped the reserved rights of the states and was legislating of matters belonging exclusively to them. The Independence of the states was fast merging into a centralized and consolidated government entirely differ ent from what was intended by the original compact. An immense system of internal improvements had been planned and was being carried into execution. To sustain this an oppressive and unconstitutional Tariff was imposed. The Public debt became largely increased. Jackson Peire ived the mischief and foresaw the evil Conse spences that would ensue. He determined to bring the government Back to it i legitimate action to restore the old policy of the democratic party from which the government had departed he used the Powers which the Constitution conferred upon the executive for this very purpose. He vetoed their unconstitutional acts. For this he was most bitterly assailed. But the attention of the people having been thereby called to an examination of the first principles of our government and the rightful Powers of Congress he was triumphantly sustained. The policy of the democratic party became vindicated and the party strengthened. Standing upon an enduring basis it has with sight interruptions continued the dominant and ruling party of the country. Again is the democratic party called upon to vindicate the equity and Justice of their time honoured policy. At length has the vexed question of the Power of Congress and of territorial Legislatures Over the subject of slavery found its solution in the decision of the supreme court. By a recurrence to first principles and with a single Eye to the Constitution the court has determined the just Lon. With alacrity the Tnie democracy takes the position pointed out by this tribunal. There they continue to stand until Victory shall Perch upon their Standard and All persons disobedient to the Behest of their government be brought to yield to its Beneficent established by the decision of the supreme court of the United states. In the 19th vol. Of Howard s reports Page 395, a syllabus of the dred Scott decision embracing the Points established by the court is Given in the following words Quot 1st. The territory thus acquired is acquired by the people of the United states for their common and equal Benet it through their agent and trustees the Federal government. Congress can no Power Over the rights of persons or property of a citizen in the territory which is prohibited by the Constitution. The government and the citizen whenever the territory is open to settlement both enter with their respective rights defined and limited by the Constitution. 2d. Congress has no right to prohibit citizens of any particular state or states from taking up their Homes there while it permits citizens of other states to do so. Nor has it a right to give privileges to one class of citizens Ivsich it refuses to another. The territory is acquired for their equal and common Benefit and if open to any it must be open to All upon equal and the same terms. 3d. Every citizen has a right of take with him into the territory any article of property which the Constitution of the United states recognizes As property. 4th. The Constitution of the United states recognizes slaves As property and pledges the Federal government to protect it. And Congress cannot exercise any More authority Over property of that description than it May constitutionally exercise Over property of any other kind. 5th. The act of Congress therefore prohibiting a citizen of the United states taking with him his slaves when he removes to a territory in question to reside is an exercise of authority Over private property which is not warranted by the Constitution and the removal of the plaintiff by his owner to that territory gave him no title to Freedom. 6th. While it remains a Tenito a Congress May legislate Over it within the scope of its constitutions Powers in relation to citizens of the United states and May establish a Tempo rial government and the form of this local government must be regulated by the discretion of Congress but with Powers not exceeding those which Congress itself by the Constitution is authorized to exercise Over citizens of the United states in respect to their rights of senator Benjamin in his speech of May 22d, 1860, says that this syllabus was prepared and written out by judge Taney himself 0ti0n_tic5kets. In reply to several inquiries we state that we Are prepared to print tickets for state congressional. And county officers on Good paper for s3.00 for the first thousand and $2.00 for each additional thousand. Orders received one Day can be returned by Eress the Day following. If onders arc sent be particular to write each name Plain and distinct so that there can be no mistake. A orders must be accompanied with the Money to receive attention.
