General G. W. Morgan rose and said :
I move that Judge Allen G. Tburman,

statesman, a man who, like the Constitu

in time ofwar as well as in time of peace,
be by aoolamation declared tbe Democrat
ic candidate for Governor ; and with God's
blessing, by the will of the sovereign peo
ple, be will be msde tbe next uovernor
of Ohio. -
The motion was received with a storm
of applause, and there being no other
candidate, Judge Tburman was deolared
the Democratic nominee for Governor, by
ajinaoimous vote of tbe Convention, amid
great and prolonged applause.- '
fjen. J. W. Fitob, of Cuyahoga, Gen.
Geo. W. Morgan, of Knox, and Mr.
Steel, of Hamilton, were appointed to

of his nomination, and request his pres

Tbe Commitiee retired, and after a

rather a demerit j for he who devotes him

purpose to discharge offioial duties as
they ihoold be discharged, it more enti

It la not then to take- credit to myself

simbly to aocount tor my unfoigned and

to decide for me ; and, as a true Demoorat,
I am bound to acknowledge and respeot
yoar authority. And, certainly, no one
eould feci more strongly than I do, how
great is the debt oi gratitude I owe yoa.
For, be the result what it may, the honor

we will hold then again, aad tram guide
the chariot of State as we did formerly
guide.it, along the pathway marked out
by tbe Constitution a path of pleasant
ness snd peace; I do not entertain a donbt.
For the Demoeratio party is the natural
party of fret institutions the party whose
principles best harmonise with our forms
of Government, in a word, the natural
party of this country. Oar whole history
proves this. : It was the Demoeratio sen
timent that freed us from Great Britain ;
it wts ibis sentiment tbat laid the foun.
dations of oar State and Federal Govern.
ments; it was tbis sentiment that gave to
our party so long a rule and msde its rule
so beneficent and glorious; it was this
sentiment tbat gave to our country Tor
more than seventy years tbe profoundeat
domestie peace the world ever saw, to
thst of v that long 'period of time it
can truly be observed, what eaonot be
said of any snob period in any other eoun
try, that m it no man in the republic
lost bis life for political offense, no man
ever perished In oivil war. And it is not
strange that it was so. For Democracy
sdminibtered the Government for the
equal benefit of all, rejecting selfishness,
discouraging sectionalism, abstaining from
usurpation, and, with a wise jealously of
power, requiring all Constitutions, eiate
or Federal, to" fee strictly construed. It
knew the tendency of power to steal from
the many to the few, the proneness of
Government, to enlsrge its authority, snd,
tbe imminent danger ot centralization ;
and it therefore clang to our Constitutions
as the greet barriers against tbe evils it
apprehended. ' '' '
It is to-day what it his ever been, tbe
great Constitution and Union loving par
ty of the country. It loves the Federal
Constitution for the glorious events that
gave it birth tor the glorious memories
of its mighty framers, for the incalcula
ble benefits it bat oonfcrred upon tbe
country, and yet more than all these, for
the limited powers it contains, and the
reserved rights it leaves to tbe States and
And we love ear State Constitution for
the wise form of government it institutes,
tbe guarantees of liberty and property it
contains, its express recognition of tbe
people as the source of power, and its
oare not to trench too deeply oa the rights
of tbe individual.. And our late sad ex
perience of constitutions violated, and
their most saorcd guarantees trampled un
dcr foot, only makes us adhere the more
strongly to the instruments designed for
And believe me, gentlemen, that no
party tbat habitually disregards our ton
stitutional rights can long maintain its
ascendenoy. This is a land of written
Constitutions, and has been so from its
very first settlement, lor even tne royal
oharters of the olden time, imperfect as
they were, guaranteed many liberties of
the people, wrung by sturdy manhood
from reluctant Kings, and wore in effect
written Constitutions. It has ever been
s part of American education to regard
written Constitutions as essential to our
welfare, happiness and freedom. For more
than eighty years it has been our boast
thero was no such thing as aa unwritten
Constitution or an omnipotent Parliament
in the United States. And for more than
three quarters of a century, we have re
quired every oSoer,' groat or small, to
solemnly swear to support our ' written
Constitution., ! And time and. again have
we, by amendments, yet further restricted
the powers ot Uovernment, but never, un
til 1865, by amendment, enlarged them.
These are most significant facts, and
the inference to be drawn from them is
not overthrown by the sad experience of
our late war. in that tembie straggle a
large portion of the people became for a
time regardless of our fundamental laws,
and without even a murmur saw them
daily violated. ' They seemed to think,
and most of them probably did think,
that in no other way could the Bepublio
be saved from destruction. A most erro
neous and dangerous belief, but nevcrthe
less entertained by many, though never hy
And even now, when war bos ceased,
we find a majority of tbe people or the
North apparently sustaining a self-styled
Congress in the plainest infraptious of the
Federal Constitution, and of the rights of
the btatei. But let no Demoorat, there
fore -despair. ' ' Tbis state of things is nee
essarily temporary. Tbe force of reason,
education, habit, wisdom, patriotism -and
magnanimity will again be felt, and the
landmarks of Iho fathers will once more
be set up.'. Then, gentlemen, what is the
plain state of the oasef The fundamen
tal idea of American institutions (some
what modified by the Federal Govern
ment) is that the majority shall rule,'but
tne minority have rights that must be re
spected. But the Radical party now in
power seeks to establish precisely the re
verse of this. Though a minority of tbe
voting population of the United States ar
rogates to itself an exclusive right to rule,
and it denies Its millions of eitisent their
plainest Constitutional privileges, it doet
not den j tbat it it minority. Oa the
contrary, it avows It, and makes that fact
the ground for seeking to enfranchise b jlf,

I do tot believe, gentlemen, that . a
scheme te repugnant to every prinoiple
that ever honored America te every idea
that Americans have tor a century cher
ished, can succeed,- or that a party that
upholds it, or allows itself to be identified

I know fall well the foroe of party or
ganisation and party ties, aad it has beea
exemplified too lately to be easily forgot

the majority ' of the people, whenever it
shall be expressed, have boon heard too
often to permit those who desire peaoa to
feel unconsented. Thst these are evil
omens it would be folly to deny : and as-
aurredly they teach us but too plainly that
the future is full of dtnger. .
But, nevertheless, I adhere to my be
lief. Tbore is stilt virtus enough in the
country to stvs it, and it will be saved.
Tht Demoeratio partya mighty h.ojw
i all right, and the hour is not far dis
tant when thousands and tens of thous

it. But be that hour far off or near, our
duty, my fellow Demoeratt,' is plain.
We are enlisted rtj a sacred cause enlist

tbe Union ) tbat the Federal Government
is unfitted to legislate for or administer
the local oonoernt of the 8tatesj that it
would be monstrous thst the local affairs
of Ohio should be regulated by a Federal
Congress in whioh she has bat two Sena

ministration is to usurp the reserved
rights of tho8tates and of ths people,
and that, therefore, a centralization of
power in its bsnds it in ever impending

er would, while it lasted, be destructive
of tbe liberties snd interests of the peo

usurpation, and therefore government
needs to be wstohed ; tbat another of its
tendencies is to govern too much, unn

that freedom of speech and of the press

sessee and Louisiana to sit In. the Home
of Representatives, after thoss States had
passed their ordinances of secession,' 'and
while tht war wu being carried on, and
which further recognised them at 8 tales
in .the Union by the Congressional Ap
portionment Act, providing for the:r due
representation it Coagrens; by various
tar laws, and especially the Direct Tax
Act; by tbe resolntions submitting amend'
ments to the Constitution for their ap
proval ; and by various other acts and res
olutions Importing the same recognition,
sll which were passed since the attempted
secession of these States. , By the Judi
ciary of the Uiiited States,' which holds
Federal Courts in all those 8lates and
especially by tbt Supreme Court, which
entertains jurisdiction oi cases coming
from them, whioh it eould not do were
tbey not in the Union.' That being thus
in tne union, they stand ou an equal foot
ing with their sister States States with
unequal rights being a thing unknown to
tht Constitution. That by the express
terms of the Constitution, each State is
entitled to two Senators and a due propor
tion of Representatives in Congress,' and
to vote at all elections of President and
Vice President. Tbat though these rights
are subject to Interruption by a state of
civil war, they eannot by civil war be ex
tinguished, or in time of peace, be so
much even as suspended, without a plain
violation of the Constitution. Thai the
assent of three fourths of all the Mates,
whether represented in Coneress or not.
is essential to tht validity of Constitution
si amendments. That QqngreU has, no
powor to deprive a 8tata of its reserved
rights and reduqe it to, a territorial condi
tion. That therefore, the exclusion by
the to-called Congress of all representa
tion from tea States, the' proposed exclu
sion of those States from all voice in the
next Presidential election, the threatened
overthrow of their State Governments.
and reduetioa of those Stajet to the con
dition of territories, are etch snd every
one of them, unconstitutional, revolution
ary and dcspotlo measures, destructive
not only to the rights of those States, bat
also the rights ot every other Stale in the
Union. That those measures aro parts of
a plan to nullify the Constitution, virtual
ly overthrow the State Governments, to
erect a consolidated despotism on their
ruins, and. to establish and perpetuate a
tyrannical rule of a minority over a ma
jority of the American people. That the
people oannot, without a loss of their lib
erties, prosperity and honor, submit to
suoh a result; sud we, therefore, a tbe
nope tbat the warning will be heeded, and
tbe danger of our institutions bo peacea
bly averted., do solemnly wn the advo
cates oi the plan, that it will not he sub
mitted to - V - '
3. Rtiolvcd, Tbat Congress is Hot an
omnipotent law-making power. That the
Constitution provides thai no bill shall be
come a law withont the anoroval of the
President, unless it bt pissed by two
thirds of cash House of Congress. That
one of the objeots of tbe present so-call
ed Congress la exoludine ten States from
representation, it to pass bills by a two
thirds Vote whioh, were all the States rep-
rarcuuia, oouia not ao past ; and thus to
virtually abolish the Constitutional provi
sion aforesaid. That if this precedent be
acquiesced in, (here will be nothing to
prevent I bare atjorit of Congress, at
uj uu, ! i us luturo, iron ouiwjiog
the Constitutional veto of the President
and usurping uncontrolled legislative Bow
er, by an exclusion of tbe minority from
their Mala. That exolasioa of even a sin
gle 8tate might giye the control, and a
pretext lor suoh an delusion would be
never wanting to . sq unscrupulous and
raroiuuonary party. - - -
