Tbe Boston I nlon Ratification
We haTe received full details of the great
meeting held in Faneuil Hall, Boston, on the
1st inst. to ratify the nominations of Cell
and Etekett. It was altogether one of tlie
most enthusiastic and magnificent displays,
of the kind made in Boston since tbe days
cf Webster. Immense in bulk, united in
sentiment and purpose, says the Courier, it
was a gathering worthy of "anniversary
week," and composed of men whose patriot
ism was not inspired by visions of custom
houses, and who mean what they say; honest
citizens who 'fear God and honor America.'
lion. Samcel A. Eliot presided, assisted by
a long list of Vice Presidents selected from
the substantial conservatives of Mas?achu
netts. Speeches were made by Messrs. Dan
iel Warrex, J. T. Steven-son-, Geo. S. Hil
lard, Leterett Saltoxstaix, Geo. II. De
tbreacx and Gcstaws A. IIexrt, of this
State. We shall try to find room aiother
day for portions of these speeches, all of
which were ot the very first order.
Baltimore and Richmond are a3 wide apart
aa Baltimore and Chicago. Washington States
Quite true. Baltimore is nothing but a
Docola3 ratification meeting. Docglas
theory is a "near cat to all the ends of Re
publicanism" while Chicago is the round
about way to the same destination. The
space which separates them i?, indeed, small
Richmond is about equally distant from both.
Democratic "Irrepressible Conilict
iu tbe aliird District.
The Chattanooga Gazette, of Saturday, pub
lishes a leDgthy and graphic account of a
political discussion at Harrison in Hamilton
county, on the Monday and Tuesday preced
ing. The discussion was warm and excitlDg,
and was participated ic by Messrs. John' L.
Hopkins and D. M. Ket, on the side of
squatter sovereignty, and Col. Jxo. A. Mixxu
and Henry S. Hill in behalf of Congression
al protection all democrats, in the generic
sense of that term. The tone of the speeches
on both sides were decided, and their outgiv
ings unequivocal. The two former were
positive in their declarations for the nominee
of the democratic Baltimore Convention, and
the latter equally poeiiive in their declara
tion against Docglas. Col. Mixxis is report
ed to have said that "he would see his coffin,
gather his shroud around him, ami sink into
the depths of the great unknown future, be
fore he would vote for euch a man under any
circumstances." Considering that nothing
short of a miracle can prevent the nomina
tion of Docqla8 at Baltimore, this Btrongex
pression of repugnance to his doctrines shows
that there ia no chance for a reconciliation
between the?e factions of the Democracy.
These occurences, taken with recent meet
ings in Memphis and KnoxviHe, indicate
that the Richmond nominee, if there be one,
will have an electoral ticket in this State, un
less the friends of Congressional protection
consent to be ruled out of tbe democratic
organization and disfranchised at the Novem
It was a "free fight," and after the com
batants had pretty thoroughly "wooled"
each other, our friend Thomas J. Campbell,
Esq., iu respont-e to urgent calls, uiade a
glorious speech iu behalt of tbe Countiiuliou
and the Union. Fortunately the occasion
was most favorable, as an illustration bad
just been given of tbe division and distrac
tions of the democratic party, and that the
friends ot the Union could no longer rely
upon that conglomerate of disagreeing fac
tions for tbe assertion of the rights of all sec
tions under the constitution and the preserva
tion of the Union; and the speaker eloquent
ly and convincingly appealed to tbe people
to rally to the standard of Bell and Everett
as th only one to overthrow the fanatics of
both the North and the South. It was a
glorious day' work for the Union.
Can tbe Seceder be Received at lial
ilmerel There are two just reasons why tLey cansot
be received. Tbe first is so conclusive as to
render tbe mention of the second unnecessa
ry. Their retirement terminated their official
life as delegates. They are politically dead
in the Democratic party. Can a member of
Congress who resigns hi office, and thus pla
ces Limself beyond tue reach of the Seargent-at-arms,
return and execute the duties of. a
ReDresentativet The seceders retired from
the cou vention and set up an organization of
tbeir own in opposition to tbe body from
which they separated themselves. This
brings us to the second reason; They disa
vowed tbe principles of tbe Natioual De
mocracy; they repudiated them, and organi
zed at once a sectional party. It tbey were
honest in going out, tbey cannot be honest in
seeking to return. If principles guided them
away, policy can bring them back only on
the condition of the sacrifice of those princi
ples. If it was robust manhood to steczde it
is weakuess and disgusting abortion to hob
ble back and ask to be received. But w? an
ticipate no such abnegation, no such stnlliti
cation and folly. As little as we respect tbe
cabal of presumptions Senatoral managers of
secession in this city, we e sinuate tue reti
ring delegates too highly to suppose for a mo
meut that they can be used in any such de
grading work. Certain it is, if we are wrong
in our judgment upon this point, tbe Balti
more Convention will never receive into - its
councils the seceders. It is to be a Democrat
ic convention; it ia to represent the Demo
cratic party of tbe whole country. It ac
knowledges no appeal from its decisions, and
no appelate power at Richmond. It cannot
recognize tbe secessionists, nor can it afford
to receive the least taint from them. It
must stand or fall upon iu cherished princi
ples and tbe purity of national faith. Wash
vxjlon State and Union.

During the absence of the Committee, Gen.

appeal to the people to come up to the sup

dispassionate investigation relying upon
the truth and justice of our cause rather than
enlisting, iu its behalf, the passions and
prejudices of the people. At ' the close of
Gen. nornberger's remarks, the Committee
made tbe accompanying report, wh n Dr.
Cobb was called out. In bis usual earnest,
Impassioned manner, the Doctor, for a few

Tbe Preaidenta Protest on Kaiiuer
" ' tbe t'ovode Committee. '' -
The following proceedings occurred in tbe
House, on Friday, 8th inst on the resolution
from the majority of the Judiciary Commit
tee dissttting from- the protest ot tbe Presi
dent on raising the Covode Committee: .
Mr. Hickman called up the resolution
heretofore reported by him. from the Com
mittee on the Judiciary, declaring the dis
sent of the House from tbe doctrines in the
message of the President, against the reso
lution authorizing the action of the Covode
After some conversational debat':, Mr"
Houston, offered a substitute from tbe mi
nority Judiciary Committee, declaring the
inquiry should have been founded upon a
substantial charge by Borne person whoe re
Fponsibility should have been vouched for;
that an investigation in advance of such a
charge would be showing a want of respect
and courtesy due; that tb6 indefiuiteness of
that part of the resolution under which the
Committee was appointed was liable to be
perverted to partisan ends, aud therefore the
prosecution of said inquiry is derogatory to
tbe dignity of the House.
Mr. Hickman refused to entertain the sub
stitute. Mr. Houston said that it was understood
that he should have tbe opportunity of offer
ing a substitute.
Mr. Hickman was of a different opinion,
and demanded tbe previous question.
Mr. Taylor said that if be persisted iu
bis refusal., be should withdraw from tbe
Committee of the Judiciary never again to
Mr. Hunter (from self-conviction) asked
to be excused from serving on that Commit
tee. Mr. Hickman's resolution was adopted 87

that the Speaker be directed to issue a pro
cess for tbe arrest of Charles a Dunham and
Alexander Hay of New York, Gideon J.
Westcott and Albert Scofield of Philadelphia,
and Mr. Kearns of Reading, Penn.
Mr. Houston again asked to be eicnsed
from service on the Committee, and made
some remarks expressive of his astonishment
at the denial of his request, saying it was
extraordinary that the courtesy should have
been denied him.
Mr. Taylor took a similar view, and felt
compelled, by self-respect, to ask to be ex
cused from service on tbe Judiciary Commit
tee. Mr. Hickman said that this matter never
excited any feelings in his breast, and indeed
very little interest. He bad no malignity of
feeling to gratify. He acted simply in per
formance of a plain duty. In reference to
charges of discourtesy, be must say he did
not recognize a minority report at all. Such
action on tbe part of tbe minority was an in
vasion of proper and parliamentary practice.
Pending the question on excusing Messrs.
Houston and Taylor, the House adjourned.

therefore insist upon and reaffirm the name.

Another Stale Convention of the Democra
cy was held the some day at DonaldsonvlUe.
This Convention- was presided over by
Gen. Moxdat, who was assisted by numer
ous Vice Presidents and Secretaries. Hon.
Pierre Soclk was the leading spirit. : The
following resolutions, reported by him on
behalf of a Committee, were adopted: "
Whereas, The Louisiana delegates to tbe
National Democratic Convention lately as
sembled ia Charleston, by withdrawing from
the convention, and joining in the formation
or a new and strictly sectional party have
vacated tbeir seats in said convention, and
severed themselves from tbe great national
Democratic family: -
Whereas, Tba Democratic Executive Com
nUt for this Stat bay net eoly dscliatd
to convoke a Democratic State Convention
to 11 the vacancies thus created, that Lou
isiana may be represented at the adjourned
session of; the said National Democratic
Convention, at Baltimore, but have endorsed
tbe action of the seceding delegates, thereby J
renouncing ait ieiiowsnip witn tne national
Democratic party: - : - ; .
And whereas. In default of action on the
part; of said Executive Committee, a call
spontaneously issued by organized Democratic-
bodies -of New -Orleans,- afterwards
sanctioned and regularized by another call
from the represenative of ; Louisiana In tbe
National Democratic. Executiva.Committee,
has invited the Democrats throughout the
Stale that were in favor of maintaining the
National Democratic party in its present or
ganization and of supporting the platform
and the nominees of the National Democratic
Convention, to meet in State Convention, at
this place of Donaldsonville, and on this day,
the 6th of June. . , f - .. .
And whereas the delegates sent from the
different parishes of the State in pursuance ot
6aid sail, being now assembled, desire to ex
press their sentiments with reference to. the
issue'raised by the secession which fo unfortu
nately broke out at the Charleston Convention
and forced its adjournment to Baltimore.
Be it thereore resolved, 1. That the conven
tion deems the action of the seceding dele
gates as an unwarranted rebellion against the
great principle of Democracy and paramount
rule of party discipline which pledges the
assent and submission of the minority to tbe
will and resolves of the majority. The pre
tense on which it is sought to be defended is
repugnant to all claim of good faith on tbe
part of those who invoke it. It were utterly
preposterous that the decisions of a great de
liberative body should be made subservient
to a pretension from each of its members to
overrule the will of others and to have his
own views and sentiments incorporated in
every measure the body might think fit to
1 2. That the true and real Democracy of
Louisiana have no sympatbyfor such as seek
to subvert the time houored usages of the
National Democratic party.
3. That this is no time tor the introduction
into the Democratic creed of doctrines which
can work no practical results, and are only
calculated to distract the party and render
its strength and preponderance unavailable.
4. That whilst it is admitted on all hands
that there is no occasion at present for any
legislation respecting slavery in tbe Territo
ries, and when the majority in both houses ol
Congress is averse to elavery, it is passing
strange that those who claim to be the exclu
sive friends ot that institution should exhibit
such anxiety to commit its keeping and main
tenance to the very power which they know
is bent upon its destruction.
5. That the doctrine of non-intervention
constitutes the covenant by which, at tbe in
stance of the South, the irritating question of
slavery was forever to be excluded from the
halls of Congress, and to be referred to that
fountain ot all political power, tbe people,
whether in the States or in the Territories;
that it was proclaimed by the compromise of
1850, so much applauded by the whole South;
acquiesced in at Baltimore in 1852, by those
who bad most vigorously opposed it, in de
ference to tbe prevailing sentiment of their
respective States; consecrated anew in the
Kansas aud Nebraska bill, and solemnly re
cognized as the abiding faith of the whole
Democratic party in the Cincinnati Conven
tion; and that it were a flagrant violation of
plighted faith on tbe part of the South to re
sign its obligations under it:
C. That the attempt to call for the inter
ference of Congress in questions concerning
slavery in tbe Territories can only be pro
productive of a conflict between the North
and South, which must inevitably end in the
disruption of this great confederacy of ours:
7. That it behooves neither the wisdom nor
the dignity of the South to risk it fortunes
on abstractions and sacrifice real advantages
to the delusive hallucinations of political
dreamers: The doctrine of non-intervention
has enabled New Mexico to organize itself
with slavery, while, under its repeal,".the
transfer of power from the people in the
Territories, to Congress, would forever ex
clude it from all our present or future acqui
sitions: 8. That this convention has the most un
bounded confidence in the firmness, patriot
ism and political honesty of Stephen A.
Douglas, and looks upon him as upon one of
tbe safest guardians of popular rights and
of the equality of the States under the con
stitution. But whilst it unhesitatingly avows
its preference for him as tbe champion of tbe
Democratic party in the coming Presidential
contest, it pledges its support and tbe sup
port of Louisiana to the nominees ot Balti
more, whoever they may be.

For the Patriot
An InnideView of Taxation.
The ruling (or rather misruling) patri
cians of Nashville, are wont to cry "Dema
gogue!" at every citizen who dares, in cross
ing the track of tbeir purposes, to reason
with the people upon the interests of the
many; and yet there are no greater dema
gogues than themselves for I take it, that
the word demagogue, as now used, means one
who appeals to a class, rather than one who
addresses himself to the entire people, or to
so many of them as he can induce to hear
him. The hobby-horse of the clique who strive
to rule our city by this sort of clap-trap, is
the. "tax-payer' humbug.
It frequently happens, that men of inde
pendent mind, who essay to advise with the
people on subjects connected with the pub
lic weal, are persons of moderate means not
possessed of any considerable town property;
and when tbe dominant lions find their hides
too short for fair conflict with these auda
cious "interlopers," they piece out with fox
skin, by straightening up like doges in
tbeir arm-chairs, lifting with immense dig
nity their gold speetalces, and exclaiming
with scorching irony, ."Yes. such men ought
to teach vs how to manage our affairs! They
pay taxes on so much property!"
Messrs. Editors, will you or any other men
of observation, doubt what I say, when I as
sure you that some of these puffed-up sucker9,
"are not worth, in their own name, so much
town property as would, if sold, bi?ng enough
to pay for one yard of tbe tapestry carpet on
which they walk so daintily? Whatever
may be your doubts, or those of others, I have
no doubt such prodigies of impudence exists
But those who really have" great possessions
within the corporate limits, are scarcely
less excusable for assuming that the poorest
citizen may not feel as much interest in
Nashville's welfare asv themselves. - The
simple fact that such men 'overshoot the
facts and arguments of any man, though he
werea resident of the moon, and raise the
hue and cry that he is not a lax-payer, is
proof enough that they are cornered, and
wish to secure their escape by throwing dast
in the pple's eyes. Yet, as there are those
who take up tbe "no property" cry as boys
take up the alarm of fire. - i propose to show
tbat it is but a dodge, like that of the Jews,
who, when" they could no longer dispute
with tbe blind man, reviled him and said,
"Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost
thou teach us?" . . . ..,-.:
Who are the tax-payers of this or any other
city I -They are the laboring hive of the
population. Not merely those who drive the
plane, wield the hammer, and handle the
trowel ; but these and all other free white
men and women, who follow bonest avoca
tions of mind or muscle. - Every freeman who
dwells in our city for a long or a short periodt
and strives while here to pay his just debts,
Is" necessarily' a taxpayer.' And, from the
very nature of tbingj under the present or
ganization of society, those who own the most
property are likely, in fact, to pay the least
share of the taxes. He who possesses the
most desirabls real estate, or the greatest,
number of valuable slaves, if a shrewd man
(and such art generally sfcrtwd enough,) will
be the last to suffer'an abridgement of income
from theRevenae Collector's requisitions.
Ask those who rent dwellings-and business
bouses, and . those who 'hire slaves, if their
rents and tbe hire of their servants do not
rise as taxes rise. The answer will come up
like the voice of many waters, "They doT"
But the ramifications of taxation "may be
traced farther than this, into the minute
branches of society. The man who seems to
pay only tbe poll tax, unconsciously pays his
share pf the property tax. .Tell that clerk, or
that journeyman mechanic, who is neither
"house-holder "nor " freeholder,1' to" ask the
lady or gentleman at whose private domicile
or public hotel he boards, why his fare costs
more now than it cost a few years ago, and
he will bring you the answer, that rents have
risen, negro-hire has risen, and taxes of priv
ilega have risen. Then go to the lady or
gentleman of the boarding-houses, and to the
proprietors of the hotels, and ask them wby
their rents and the hire of their servants have
gathered so much weight within the past few
years. Their answer will be, "The wealthy
persons from whom we rent and hire say tbey
mutt havi more to cover taxes.'
So you perceive, Messrs. Editors, there is
not a wight of all us poor. contemptible dev
ilf who sojourn in tbe city long enough to
eat a plate of bacon and greens and drink a
glass of diluted milk, who does not pay a
portion of the vaunted property tax, if he
pays for his dinner. The only exempts from
the real burdens of taxation, besides tbe stifi
rumped nabobs, are those insolvent fungi
of splendor, who pay only wben they please,
or when they are rt quired to do so in ad
vance, and who have not tbe fear of sher
iffs and constables before their eyes. Would
it not sound rscA, to hear some of these very
fungi talking disdainfully of those who have
no property of those who are not " lax
payers? - If we could all keep In view this plain,
practical, inside view of taxation, those over
bearing old fogies of Nashville who attempt
to beat down the truth, when they don't
like it, by shouting, "no tax payer," at him
who tells it, would incur tbe contempt they
merit. Possibly, with yeur permission, I
may in future have something further to say
on this subject. Plebeian.
