In pursuance of the notice Given the delegates to this body met precisely at twelve o clock on tuesday morning in the Hall of the musical Asb Ocia Tion. Felix a bundt. Esq. Called the convention j to order and then moved that governor Hilt of new Hampshire take the chair and that Gen. Dix of new York be appointed Secretary pro Tern which was agreed to. On motion the Rev. Or. Bubke offered up prayer to the throne of Grace. On motion of or. Sampson a committee consist aug of one member from each state was appointed to Nomin candidates for president four vice presidents and a Secretary. I hated that at the coming presidential election the Jalm Cracy of the and of Penn could not be beaten tory federalism. The whole democracy of the stat were Here represented and they would speak trumpet tongued to the people. Quot we Quot continued or. K Quot hanging our Banner on the outer Wall we proclaim the eternal principle that Man is fit a self government and by the Aid of Almi to obd the people shall and will Rule. They they shall Triumph. And that party who Are afraid of their principles Are unworthy of the Suffrages and Confidence Oftle people of this glorious or. A bundt Rose amidst loud and enthusiastic cheering and said in one thing fellow citizens you Are not mistaken. I am a Veteran in the cause of democracy i was born so and have lived so even beyond my three ecord years. 1 have often met in political conflict men of the other party and am still ready to meet them wherever and whenever they May present themselves on proper and fit occasions. Yes sir an Olind sound vessel that has stood the Quicksand. The vials and the Sawyers of the Mississippi a that has met in the open sea the proudest Force of the enemy and never struck her Flag has often been compelled to meet their Little skiffs and bark canoes is still As sound As Ever and prepared for a new contest. I stand Here fellow countrymen As a Teni Tessean should stand Here a As an old Democrat and not Only that but i bring with me one who has done his duty in the Field this allusion to general Carroll was received with an Universal burst of applause Here we present ourselves to the democracy of the Union not fearing to speak to them As boldly As we have done in the Field and the Cabinet whatever it becomes patriotic to say and do. This however has Little to do with tie present question. What then is our duty 1 what Are the principles on which we Eland 1 we Bay that we Are the friends and advocates of equal rights or in other words that every Freeman shall stand on the Broad platform of Liberty and Equality we want an open Field and a fair argument we want no adventitious Aid either from exclusive privileges or banking corporations. But let me admonish you fellow Citize a that we must take care of this institution called a Bank of the United slates. Do you say that you will put it under such restraints As will prevent u from usurping the liberties of the country 1 what you put re j on the abject of abolition which the whip com it Mittee will not let their candidate seem i oat Apo. Van Buren has been most explicit. He has radar de Bia of Pattion to that fell spirit in terms and stated to Advance that he Oitto veto any Bill passed by Congress interfering with the quest Iii of slavery either in the state a in tip Dia it strict of Columbia Fiat How is it with the whig candidate 1 there Are vast numbers of abolitionists at the North and though they Aro a troublesome set of people their vote court a Well As those of others. Now the whig committee of Cincinnati have come to the conclusion that a letter written to the abolitionists unfavourable to their View would cause the loss of their votes while a letter of a contrary character would Cost them the votes of the South. Hence the Nece nity on their part for avoiding All correspondence on that subject for whether they wrote one Way or the other they would be placed in an awful predicament. After a few remarks or. G. Concluded by pledging himself that the people of his state would never vote for any Man whose principles and policy were not openly and fearlessly avowed to them and that Well knowing and having the i fullest Confidence in the present democratic candidate for the chief magistracy they would give him a Hearty and efficient support.

There was no British influence Actu if upon Iheson for they loved their country too or. Clat of Alabama took a similar View of the was no Antis a Gold diffused among them for Tivey it has so happened that i never belonged to a deliberative Assembly. Of course then it is not to be _ expected that i should possess such a knowledge of Well to be swayed by foreign influence. Now i do the rules to govern their proceedings As is Necess a question.

Resolved that the Federal government a one of limited Powers derived solely from the Constitution and the Grants of Power shown therein ought to be strictly construed by All the i part ments and agents of the government and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful constitutional Power. 2. Resolved that the Constitution does not Confer upon the general govern sent the Power to com Mence and carry on a general system of internal improvements 3. Resolved that the Constitution does not Confer authority upon the Federal government directly or indirectly to assume the debt of the several ates contracted for local improvements or other state purposes nor would such Assumption be just or expedient. 4. Resolved that Justice and found policy forbid the Federal government to Foster one Branch of Industry to the detriment of another or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another portion of our common country that every citizen and every Section of the country Haa a right to demand and insist upon an Equality of rights and privileges and to Complete an ample Protection of persons and property Froin Domestic violence or foreign aggression. 5. A solved that it is the duty of every Branch of Tite government to enforce and practise the most rigid Economy in conducting our Public affairs and that no More Revenue should be raised than is required to defray the necessary expenses of the government. 6. Resolved that Congress has no Power to charter a National Bank that we believe such an institution one of deadly hostility to the Best interests of the country dangerous to our Republican institutions and Tim liberties of the people and calculated to place the business of the country within the control of a concentrated Money Power and above the Laws and will of the people. 7. Resolved that Congress has no Power under the Constitution to interfere with nor control the Domestic institutions of the several states and that such states Are the sole and proper judges of every thing appertaining to their own affairs not prohibited by the Constitution that All Efi torts of the abolitionists and others made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery or to take incipient Steps in relation thereto Are calculated to Lead to the Moat alarming and dangerous Conseen Ces and that All Sach efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union and ought not to be countenanced by any Friend to our political Inabit Timis. 3. Resolved that the Liberal principles embodied by Jefferson in the declaration of and sanctioned in the Constitution which makes Oura a land of Liberty and the Asylum of the of preened of every nation have Efer been Cardinal Prici Plain the democratic Fri it and every attempt to Atridge the present privilege of becoming Citi Iena and the owners of Oil among a ought to be resisted with the same spirit which swept the a Lien and sedition Laws from our statute books. the moved that the ovation be taken on each real upon separately which bail been accordingly done they were severally Unnar Monsler.
