During the discussion of this motion. Henry C.
Murphy, from the Committee on Platform, re
ported a set of resolutions. The ninth denounces
thu usurpation and tyranny or the Radical party:
tho violation or its pledges that the conduct of
tho war was only for the preservation r the
Union, und not for the subjugation of the South
ern States ami the overthrow or the freedom of
speech, wi the Radical press declared; that in
stead thereof the Radicals have ilblislit.il n
system orespionngo; have disregarded the writ
ailtnbta cvrjnu; have made the National Capi
tol a bustlle; threaten now to destroy the original
jurisdiction or the Supreme Court, and have ma
ligned its Justice because or his integrity on the
trial or the President.

ly to Hio control or oocli State. Congress bag
usurped It In violation or the Constitution.

tion, unconstitutional and void; demands that

oally administered, should ho honestly applied

their face, or the law undor which they were is

an address to the NalintMl Democratic Cuuvea-
tion, declaring the objects or the Conservative
Soldiers and S.tilor to lie the oaiae as antmatml
them during the war; deploring Radical legfedo-
tion; denouncing the apoetney uf men who were
once Uemocrats; declaring that crime were now
being perpetrated in the name or Repnblleaniatn
oad loyalty, not lws amnning than tbo-e com
mitted hy the armed foes of the Government du
ring the war. The address makes a long Indict
ment against the Republican party lor many
sets since it came Into pewer, sad "declare the
belief that they intend, by use of the armv under
Grant's supreme control, to caiw the electoral
vote of eme State" to be cast for hiasself by
force and fraud. It also declares the solemn
conviction that the free institutions of the coun
try have never been in greater jeopardy than
now, and tbey look to the deliberations of the
Democratic party now assembled In Convention
with the greatest cnxiety. believing that on their
action depends the future prosperity of our
country. The address expresses the belief that
there a"re now living half a million or men who
served in the army of the country, who are
in sympathy and judgment oppoed to the acts

more who have heretofore acted with the Repnb-
lican party, but viewing

claring that with a platform of principles reviv
ing no dead issues, but looking only to the
arrest of existing evils, and with candidates
whose fidelity to the Constitution and devotion
i to the countrr cannot be nuemtioniHl. we nlmtl
co-operate with the Democracy in this campaign
( with enthusiasm, and with confidence that will
bring victory and aalvatien to the country. A

Denver, of California, took the chair.
Mr. Slocum reported a rcsolntlon from the
committee on platform, reciting that the Inter
change of opiuion had with the Democratic Con
vention fullv confirmed the former estimate of
the nuritv and natrinllsm of that bn.lr.nnd ftlllr
justifies the belief that, in the selection of candi
dates and the construction or a plaironn tuc Con

address adopted by this body; therefore
Ilttctved, That we support their nominees, and

Col. Campbell, of Ohio, moved to lay the re
port of the committee on the table, as he was un

Lovers in a Fix.
Tho Memphis (Tonn.) Arrjru, relates tho
Night before last, as the moon rose over
the hills nnd dusty tree tops, gilding the
spires of our beautiful eily with her' silver
rays, there might have been seen upon the
roof of an Etyptian cottage, which is tint and
covered with pure white gravel ind pitch, a
couple of lovers, seated and enjoying the
beauty cd" the scene, and,
Though few the hours, the hnppy moments few,
So warm with heart, no rich with love they flew.
That their full souls forgot to roam,
And rested there as in a dream of home.
The sun during the day had been very
warm, and thus they met to spend the fleet
ing hours of twilight, enjoying tho pleasant
breeze .that flouted up from the magnolia
garden lieneath, and interchanged those
soul-longinga nnd warm allections for each
other, the lovers sat ; with one arm he en
circled the waist of the fair creature at his
"Her little hand lay lovingly, confidingly in
and all pass lovingly and quietly until the
bell tolled the midnight hour. .
"None but the loving and beloved. .
Should be awake at that sweet hour.'
The tolling of the bell reminded them
Tired Nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleep,"
was requisite for lovers as vraV. as ethers.
Still seated near each other the plighM
vows were exchanged and staled with kesvs,
"Linked sweetness long drawn ouL"
At length after many efforts to sever those
pleasures, the transported lovers found they
were bound to each other by more sticking
bonds than lovers vows. The hot sun had
melted the pitch, and after sitting so long,
and the night air having cooled the resinous
matter, they were "ituck fast." The young
gentleman tlrst attempted to disengage him
self, but found like Aunt Jemima's plaster,
u the more you try to pall it oif, the tighter
it sticks the faster." The young lady then
tried to get up, which she did, minus the
skirl of her drer-s and all of her underclothes
as far as the "tilterss.'' In this plight she at
tempted to remove her disconsolate partner,
but it was no use he couldn't come. After
some parley he concluded he could manage it
bv (dipping off his pant. Accordingly he
asked of bis companion the loan of a pair of
pant until he could get home. She thought
her pa's would do if "they were not too long.
With this information he slipped off his
boots, and looking his suspenders, drew him
self out nf his pants as easily as possible, and
the disconsolate couple took "themselves down
stairs in a very blushing manner. The lady
procured as quickly as possible a pair of her
fathers pants, which were run into pretty
quick, and the Adonis decamped with his
pants rolled up about six inches. The joke
was too good to bo kept; by little and littlo
it leaked out until the truth had to como to
exculpate the happy innocents.
