During the taking of the vote for Vice President,
thf following telegraphic dispatches were read :
From Stephen H. Douglass.—"l congratulate the

held in Ck.ciuuati; and it was further decided
that in that Convention each State shall be entitled
to twice as mauv delegates as she has votes in the

THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
RESOLUTIONS OF THE DEMOCRATIC NA
TIONAL CONVENTION.
Reso/ved, That the American Democracy
place their trust in the intelligence, the patiiot
ism, and the disciitainating justice of the Ame
lican people.
Resolved, That we regard this as a distinc
tive feature of our political creed, which we are
proud to maintain before the world, as the great
moral element in a form of government, spring
ing from and upheld by the popular will; and
we contrast it with the creed and practice of
federalism, under whatever name or form,
which seeks lo palsy the will of the constitu
ent, and which conceives no imposture too
monstrous (or the popular credulity.
Resolved, therefore, That, entertaining these
views, tlie Democratic party of this Union,
through their delegates assembled in a gene
ra! convention of the States coming together
in a spirit of concord, of devotion to the doc
trines and faith of a free representative govern
ment, and appealing to their fellow citizens for
the rectitude of theii intentions, renew and re
assert, before the American people, the declara
tions of principles avowed by them when, on
former occasions, iu genera! convention, they
presented their candidates for the popular
suffrages :
1. 1 hat the federal government is one of
limited powers, derived solely from the consti
tution, und file grants of power made therein
ought lo be strictly construed by alt the depart
ments and agents of the government; and that
it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise
doubtful constitutional powers.
J. That the constitution does not confer upon
the general government the power to com
mence and carry on a general system of inter
nal improvements.
3. That the constitution does not confer au
thority upon the fedeial government, directly
or indirectly, to assume the debts of the seve
ral States, contracted for local internal itn
pioveiuenls, or other State purposes; nor would
such assumption be just and expedient.
4. That justice and souud policy forbid the
federal government to foster oue branch of in
dustry to the detriment of any other, or to
cherish the interests of one portion to the in
jury o! another portion of our cotntnen coun
trj ; that every citizen, and every section of the
country, has a right to demand and insist upon
an equality of rights and privileges, and to
complete and ample protection of persons and
property from domestic violence or foreign
aggression.
That if is the duty of every branch of the
government to enforce und practice the most
lipid economy in conducting our public atfuirs,
and that no more revenue ought to be raised
than is required to defray the necessary ex
penses of tht government, and for the gradual
but certain extinction of the public debt.
C. That Congress bus no power to charter a
Uatioual 1. ok; thu we believe su»h mi
lion one of deadly hostility to the besti nferesla
of the country, dangerous to our republican
institutions and the 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 the will of the
people; and that the results of democratic leg
islation, uf this and all other financial meas
ures upon which issues have been made be
tween the two political parties of the country.
ha»e demonstrated lo candid and practical
men of all parties, their soundness, safety and
utility in ail bu-iuess pursuits.
7. l'hat the seperation of the moneys of the
government Iroin bunking inslitutoris is indis
pensable for the aaf ly of the funds of the gov
ernment and the rights of ibe people.
8. That the liberal principles embodied by
Jefferson in the Declaration of tudepeudence,
•ml sanctioned in the constitution, which
makes ours the land of liberty, and tbe asylum
ol the oppressed of every nation, have ever
been cardinal priuciplea.in the democratic faith;
and every attempt to abridge the present privi
lege of becoming citizens and the owners of
•oil amonp us, ought to be resisted with the
same spirit which swept the alien and sedition
laws from our statute books.
9. Th«t Congress has no power under the
constitution to interfere with or control the do
mesne institutions of the several States, and
that such States are the sole and properjudges
of everything appertaining to their own affairs
not prohibited by the constitution; that all ef
forts of the abolitionists or others made to in
duce Congress to interfere with questions ol
slavery, or to tske incipient steps j n relation
thereto, ate calculated to lead to the tnost
alarming uud dangerous cunsequencee, and
that all such efforts have uu inevitable tenden
cy to diminish the happiness of the people,
and endanger the stability and permanency of
the Union, and ought not to he countenanced
by any friend ol our political institutions.
He sot red, That the foregoing proposition
covers and wan intended to einluace the whole
subject of slavery agitation in Congress, and
therefore the Dem lcratic party ol the Union,
standing upon this national platform, will
abide by nnd adhere to a faithful execution of
the acts known as tlie compromise measures,
settled by the last Congress—the act for the
reclaiming of fugitives Irom service or labor
included, which act, being designed to carry
out an express provision of the constitution,
cannot, with fidelity thereto, be repealed or so
changed as to destroy or impair its efficien
cy.
lirsolved, That (he Democratic party will
resist all attempts at renewing in Congress or
out ot" it, the agitation of the Slavery ques
tion, under whatever shape or color the attempt
inav be made.
Resolved, That the proceeds of the public
lands ought to be sacredly applied to the na
tional objects specified in the constitution; and
that we are opposed to any law for the distri
bution of sucli proceeds among the States, as
alike inexpedient in policy, and repugnant to
the constitution.
Resolved, That we are decidedly opposed
to taking from the President the qualified veto'
power, by wkich he is enabled, under restric
tions and responsibilities, amply sufficient to
guard the public interest, to suspend the pass
age of a bill whose merits cannot secure the
approval of two thirds of the Senate and
House of Representatives until the judgment
of the people can be obtained thereon, and
which has saved the American people from the
corrupt and tyrannical domination of the Bank
of the United States, and from a corrupting
system of general internal improvements.
Resolved, That the Democratic party will
faithfully abide by and uphold the principles
laid down in the Kentucky and Virginia reso
lutions of 1798, and in the report of Mr. Madi
son to the Virginia Legislature in 1759; that it
adopts those principles as constituting one of
ihe main foundations of its political creed and
is resolved to carry them out in their obvious
meaning and import.
Resolved, That the War with Mexico, upon
all the principles of patriotism, and the laws oi
nations, was a just and necessary war on our
part, in which every American citizen should
have shown himself on the side of his country,
and neither morally or physically, by word
or deed, have given aid and comfort to the
enemy.
Resolved, That we rejoice at the restoration
of friendly relations with our sister Republic of
Mexico, and earnestly desire for her all the
blessings and prosperity which we enjoy un
der Republican institutions,and we congratu
late the American people upon the results of
that war, which have so manifestly justified
the policy and conduct of the Democratic
party, and insured to the United States "in
demnity for the past and security for the
future."
Resolned, That in view of the condition of
popular institutions in the oic|Aorld,a high and
sacred duty is devolved with increased res
ponsibility upon the Democratic party of this
country as the party of the people, to uphold
and maintain the rights of every State, and
thereby the Union of the States, and to sustain
and advance among us constitutional liberty,
by continuing to resist all monopolies and ex
clusive legislation for the benefit of the few at
the expense of the many, and bv a vigilant and
constant adherence to those principles and
compromises of the constitution, which are
broad enough and strong enough to embrace
and uphold the Union as it is, and the Union
as it shall be, in the full expansion of the ener
gies and capacities of this great and progres
sive people.
Fire in Jersey City.
