y\ delivered before the Metropolitan Democratic
m 'Club, in which he said '-he rejoiced to see]that
JT we wera on the eve of a great uprising of the
American people. TBuIlyJ We saw one six
years ago to save the Union of these States;
we are now called'on to save tho constitution.
, We. who have left the Republican party to de
V-fend. the .constitution are accused of siding
' with rebellion. The South is the victim of a ,
horrible tyranny, and^ypur turn will not be
long delayed." The South is crushed and de- '
.-. spoiled, and you also will soon be crushed and 1
V;. despoiled. Your own immediate intereste will 1
be overruled by fifty earpet-baggerd' in'the I
- House of Representatives and twenty in the ]
'Senate af the United States. A large body of i
intelligent men at the Son th have been dis- ,
franchised; and a quantity of ignorant negroes .
'-:e??r?ncb?8ed, .and to govern, .whom? , The *
\'? Southern States? Not You here in New York! 1
You will have to ' support an army which will
drain your wealth, and a military aristocracy ;:
built upon rta spoliation. ' I have been al ways
a Democrat, an d my father .was a friend of the
hero-President,' General Jackson, and when I
felt compelled to leave the Democratic party it
waa because the Southern wing made the slave
power praoticaliy the governing power of the
country. I see now quite as little and lax lesa :
Democracy in tountlmgra government of the
sword, aided by the negro. This sovereign
Bump Congress- has lately e nf ran chis he d'
twelve hundred-of the worst rebels of the .
South because they voted the Radical ticket,
and. men who were opposed before the war to.
secession remain disfranchised because they j
will tiot endorse its acts. Why should hot the
citizen s of New York. and New Jersey be dis
franchiflhed if they also disprove ita course?
Their turn will surely follow." .
-Mr, Belmont's speech, in opening tho New
York Convention, concluded as follows: "The
American people will no longer remain deaf to
the teachings- of the past. They will remember
j, that it was under successive Democratic ad?
ministrations , based apon our national princi?
ples-principles of constitutional liberty-that
our country._ rose to a prosperity of greatness
unsurpassed in the annals of history; they will
remember the days- when North and Sooth
marched shoulder to shoulder together in the
conquest of Mexico, which gave us our golden
* empire on the Pacific, our California and our
Oregon, now the strongholds of triumphant
Democracy. They will remember the days
when psace- and plenty reigned over the whole
Union, when we bad no national debt to crush
_-tho-energics of the people; when federal tax
gatherers were unknown throughout the vast
extent of the land ; when the credit of the Uni
? " - tedStates stood as high in the money marts of
the world aa that of any other government; and
they will remember with wise sorrow that with
the downfall of the Democratic party in 1860
came that fearful civil war which has brought
mourning and desolation into every household;
has cost the loss of a million of American citi?
zens, and baa left us with a national debt, the
burden of which drains the resources, cripples
tho industry and impoverishes the labor of the
country. They will -remember that after the
fratricidal strife was over,' when the bravery of
-our army and navy and the sacrifices of the
. people had restored" the Union and vindicated
the supremacy of the law ; when victor and
van finished were equally read* to bury the
past and to holdout the hand of brother?
hood ?nd good-will across the graves of their
Allen comrades, it was again the defeat of
D?mocratie candidates in 1864 which prevented
this consummation so devoutly wished for by
all. Instead of trying to wipe out the miseries
Of the past by a magnanimous policy, dictated
alike by humanity and sound statesmanship,
\ ?and so ardently prayed for by the generous
heart of the American people, the Radicals in
Congress, elected in an. evil hour, have placed
the iron heel of the conqueror upon the South.
Austria did not more to fasten upon vanquish
ed Hungary, nor Russia to impose upon con?
quered Poland the ruthless tyranny now in?
flicted by Congress noon the Southern States.
Military satraps are invested with dictatorial
i po-w,.overridin?7 derisions of courts and as-,
sumingjtlfe functions of civil authorities, while
populations are disfranchised or forced to sub?
mit to test oaths alike revolting: to justice and
civilization, and a debased and ignorant race,
just emerged from servitude, ?B raised into
power to control the destinies of that fair por?
tion of our common country. Gentlemen of
the Convention, your country looks to you to
stay the tide of diaintegrationrviolence and
despotism. It will not look in vain when, next
November, the roll shall be called, and when
State after State shall respond by rallying
around the banner of Democracy, on which in
the roture, as in the past, will be inscribed our
'Keyingmotto: The Union, the Constitution
t ut ;h"- Lawe."
WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 8, 1868.
The Democratic Platform.
We print'this morning tbe platform of
the ' National Democratic Convention-a
platform whose plain, manly and earnest
language upon the great questions of the
day contrasts happily with the double-faced,
shuffling Republican resolutions lately
adopted in Chicago.
It was'feared that the Democracy of the
nation would be tempted to prefer 'expedi?
ency to far-seeing statesmanship; but.the
delegates of North and South,' East and
West, have been worthy of their ancient
fame, and speak at last in earnest, hearty
tones that carry with them the assurance
of confidence and victory. - - Upon the
subject of taxation, upon the subject
of the tariff, upon the subject of the
right of suffrage, their words cannot be
misunderstood, and their declaration that
the monstrous Reconstruction acts are un?
constitutional and void will cause every
Southern man, every lover of republican
liberty/ to -enlist his whole strength in the
cause of the National Democracy. Their
caus? is pur cause, our cause is theirs ; but
we may well be grateful to Providence that
the patty which represents the honesty, the
intelligence and the wealth of the nation,
has explicitly and unreservedly, taken
SIGHT AND CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM as
its motto, ?nd has given us a war-cry that
shall Bend a thrill of terror to the heart ot*
every Radical in the land.
Tlie Message or Governor Orr.
The message of Governor OBS to the
State Legislature, published .this morning, !
is one of the most able documents ever sub?
mitted to this people, and with the accom?
panying reports and statements, exhibits, ia
a clear and: comprehensible manner, the
present condition of the different depart?
ments of the government.
'r In his recommendations Governor ORB is
frank and plain, and he has evidently been
prompted by a proper desire to render a
faithful accoum of his stewardship, while,
at the same time, he points put to the inex?
perienced legislators who temporarily di?
rect our affairs the shoals upon which they
are most likely to be wrecked. The views
of Governor ORR concerning taxation are
reasonable and just, but it will be a shock j
to Republican property holders to.learn 1
that the late convention absorbed $110,000 ;
that the sitting Legislature will cost about
$140,000; that the city and county jurors,
ander the new constitution, will cost $99,
000 against $42,000 under the old plan; .
and that the total amount to be met by the
State in the coining year, including the ]
Legislature, the deficit for this ye ar under 1
General CANET'S order, nnd the interest on
the State debt due October, 1868, will be no
less than $1,057,638, without one dollar be?
ing appropriated for free schools.
Governor ORR advises a State loan, de?
nies the State liability for the notes of the
Bank of the State, urges that- the Legisla?
ture take measures for defeating the at?
tempt of persons representing a small por?
tion of the bonds of the Greenville and Co- :
lumbia Railroad to sell the road to the pre- ?
judice of the State and all other creditors,
and warmly advises immediate action for
securing the complet ion of the Blue Ridge
Railroad, -whose importance he well ex?
Governor.OBB explains the position of the
Penitentiary and Lunatic Asylum, and
passes to the University, which he recom?
mends shall be appropriated exclusively to
the whites, while the -Citadel, in Charles?
ton, may be converted into an educational
institution for the colored people. White
immigration, he says, should be encouraged
by all available means within the command
of the Legislature and the people. It is
recommended that the State House be com?
pleted, and that a residence be furnished
the Governor or his pay be increased. The
codification of the criminal law and the
adoption of a uniform system of punish?
ment for crime and the restriction of the
death penalty to murder and arson and
other crimes -of the greatest gravity, are
recommended. The-Governor offers more
valuable advice as to the responsibility of
sheriffs, the sale of land for taxes and the
selection of juries. He has no doubt as to
the constitutionality of the homestead ex?
emption law, and urges that a stay law be
> The whole message is luminous, cogent
and thoughtful in au eminent degree, and
will be an enduring record of the thor?
oughness with which Governor ORB has
coiuicLsred the wants and necessities of the
It is whispered that the white Republi?
cans of South Carolina are in sore distress
for lack of a newspaper organ. They are
ill-satisfied that the sole exponents of "the
party of great moral ideas" in South Caro?
lina should be the dingy sheets sent forth
under the pious auspices of negro preach?
ers like Cain and Webster, or the more pre?
tentious but shorter-lived publications
started semi-eccasionally by our Coroner
that-is-to-be, the indefatigable HURLEY.
Accordingly, the fiat has gone forth that "a
first class daily paper"-Republican in pol?
itics and respectable in character-must
forthwith be established in the City of
Charleston. The magnificent sum of twenty
thousand dollars is said to have, been sub
scribed: Co float: the enterprise decently,-and
the hope!is entertained that, with so liberal
a/start and bolstered.?up by the patronage
of the oliy and' State governments, with- an
occasional fat job from Washington, the
new paper will live and flourish. The great
perplexity is about an editor. It is under?
stood that -the "General'1'- PIERCE, who has
lately beeu figuring at the Radical meet?
ings, is ready to sacrifice himself .b? be?
coming the occupant of the tripod; but the
parties whose money is at stake have not* |
vet been able to discern his peculiar quali?
fications as an editor, and so there is dan?
ger after ali of his shining talents being
lost to the cause of Republican journalism.
Who, then, wants the honor of ushering
the new daily into- a moribund existence '
We pause for a reply.
Mr. J. P. THOMAS, of Columbia, publishes
a card in the Phoenix, in which he says that
the assertion made in the Columbia corres?
pondence of the Charleston Mercury that
he, with other gentlemen named, would
publish ?a manifesto calling upon the
people of the State to stand by the new
State government," is, so far as it refers to
him, wholly unfounded. We may add that
the assertion is equally unfounded so far as
it refera to one of the proprietors of THE
