Krona tine State Central Executive
The Central Executive Committee
have received information that each
State will be entitled in the National
Democratic Convention, to double
os many delegates as it has represen?
tatives in Congress. This will give
to this State twelve delegates: four
from the State ot large, and eight
from the Congressional Districts.
The recent Convention here appoint
. ed but six delegates, and the Execu?
tive Committee do not feel authorized
to fill np tho delegation, nor do they
desire to do so. lu order that our
State may have ber full representa?
tion, somo actiou must be taken by
the people. The Central Club in ouch.
Election District might send to the
Executive Committee tho names of
one delegate fo? tho Congressional
District in which it is located, and
two for the State at large. From tho
names thus selected, the Committee
will appoint three gentlemen, having
the highest number of votes. Should
this pian be deemed impracticable or
inexpedient, it will bo necessary to
coil a Convention, for the purpose of
filling up our delegation.. This mut?
ter is brought before the people, iu
order that some expression of their
wishes may bo given. The Demo?
cratic Clubs throughout the State uro
requested to respond to tho Execu?
tive Committee promptly.

From the oorrespondcnoV*'^IWj
New Tori; Times, we toar>'t^t. ft
?rand demonstration took place at
Chicago. The stage WAS ornamented;
the acto? were numerous in
high glee. Carl Schurz, tho red Re?
publican, and tho fiery Logan, of
warlike aspect-a very Mars-the
great god of war, Lieutenant-Gene?
ral to tho Earl of Mar-seemed to bo
the leading spirits. After Grant had
been nominated, the following scene
was enacted, and it brought down
A dramatio surprise, little expected
by the large majority nrponnt fol?
lowed, and added' to the delight of
the spectators. A dove, representing
the national colors, and the harbinger
of peace, flew from one of the pro?
scenium boxes, and made the passage
of the vast audience room several
times, until it landed at the rear of
tho stage. The band struck up
"Hail to the Chief," and at a given
moment tho bunting which covered
the rear of the stage was pulled aside,
and Nast's splendid new picture, il?
lustrative of Grant's candidacy, ap?
peared in view and received tho
unbounded applause of people al?
ready wild with delight. Tho scene
covered the entire rear of the stage,
aud represents tho portico on the
White Houso, with a large pedestal
on the right, with Grant seated there?
on in uniform, and tho base of it
endorsed "Chicago nominee, 1868;"
and on the left of tho portico is an?
other pedestal, but vacant, on which
is painted "Democratic nominee,
New Ycrk, 1868." By the side of
Grant, with one hand pointing to bim
and the other to tho vacant platform,
stands the figure of Columbia, and
over all the significant words, "Match
The enthusiasm now reached its
highest point, and it was many mi?
nutes before the Convention could
proceed with its work. This was tho
first real burst of genuine feeling
which had yet been felt in the Con?
vention. The soldiers present struck
up "Rally round the flag;" tho au?
dience joined in the chorus, and
then a glee club sang a new campaign
song, entitled "Hurrah for Grant,"
with fine effect.
Wc have looked carefully, and have
been unable to find the names of the
South Carolina performers, and we
cannot report whether they were
black or white. In fact, the colored
man is put behind the scene aud
does not appear at all npou the
stage. The following part was played,
and it produced "immenseapplause."
The theatre was crowded, ar 1 thc
enthusiasm "immense." Read, now,
and tho account is so graphic that it
will be the same, reader, as if yon
had been there. Who spoke for

party, I nominate, as candidate for
the Chief Magistracy of this nation,

The greatest enthusiasm prevailed
upon the nomination of General
Grant, The members arose to their
feet, and gave three rousing cheers
for the General. Handkerchiefs were

Od this principle, we append tho
platform of the radical party:
Th?3 Hon. Richard W. Thompson,
of Indiana, Chairmau of the Com?
mittee ou Resolutions, advanced to
the platform and reported as follows:
Tho National Republican party of
the United States, assembled in Na?
tional Convention, in the city of
Chicago, on the 20th day of May,
1868, make tho following declaration
1. Wo congratulate tho couutry on
the assured success of the reconstruc?
tion policy of Congress, as evinced
by the adoption, in tho majority of
the States lately in rebellion, of Con?
stitutions securing equal civil and
political rights to all; and it is the
duty of the Government to sustain
those Constitutions, and to prevent
the people of such States from being
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guarantee by Congress of
equal suffrage to all loyal men at the
South was demanded by every con?
sideration of public safety, of. grati?
tude, and of justice, and must be
maintained, while the question of
suffrage in all the loyal States proper?
ly belongs to the people of those
3. We denounce all forms of repu?
diation as a national crime, and tbe
national honor requires the payment
of tho publio indebtedness in the ut?
most good faith to all creditors at
home and abroad, not only accord?
ing to the letter, but the spirit, of
the laws under which it was con?
4. It is due to the labor of the na?
tion that taxation should be equalized
and reduced os rapidly as the national
faith will permit.
5. The national debt, contracted,
as it bas been, for the preservation of
the Union for all time to come,
should be extended over a fair period
for redemption; and it is the duty of
Congress to reduce tho rate of inte?
rest thereon whenever it can be
6. That the best policy to diminish
our burdon of debt is to so improve
our credit that capitalists will seek to
loan us money at lower rates of in?
terest than we now pay, and must
coutinue to pay, so long as repudia?
tion, partial or total, open or covert,
is threatened or suspected.
7. The Government of the United
States should be administered with
the strictest economy, and the cor?
ruptions which have been so shame?
fully nursed and fostered by Andrew
Johnson call loudly for radioal re?
8. We professedly deplore the un?
timely aud tragio death of Abraham
Lincoln, and regret the accession of
Andrew Johnson to the Presidency,
who has acted treacherously to tho
people who elected him and the cause
he was pledged to support-who bas
usurped high legislative and judicial
functions-who has refused to exe?
cute tho laws-who has used his high
office to induce other officers to ignoro
and violate the laws-who hos em?
ployed his executivo powers to render
insecuro tho property, the peace,
liberty and life of the citizen-who
has abused tho pardoning power
who bas denounced tho National
Legislature as unconstitutional-por
?ioteutly and corruptly resisted, by
overy measuro in his power, every
proper attempt at the reconstruction
of the States lately in rebellion-who
has perverted the public patronage
into au eugino of wholesale corrup?
tion-aud who has been justly im?
peached for high crimes and misde?
meanors, and properly pronounced
guilty thereof by the vote of thirty
9. The doctrine of Groat Britain
and Other Europeau Powers, that be?
cause u man is once a subject, be is
always so, must be resisted at evory
hazard by the United fltnr.??, qa ?
relic of tho feudal times, not author?
ized by the law of nations and at war
with our national honor and indepen?
dence. Naturalized citizens are enti?
tled to be protected in all their rights
of citizenship as though they wero
native born, and no citizen of the
United States, native or naturalized,
must be Hablo to arrest or imprison?
ment by any foreign power, for aots
done or words spoken in thisoountry;
and if BO arrested and imprisoned, it
is the duty of the Government to in?
terfere in bis behalf.
10. Of all who wero faithful rn tho
trials of the lato war, there wero none
entitled to moro especial honor than
the brave soldiers and seamen who
endured the hardships of campaign
and cruise, and imperiled their lives
in the service of the country. The
bounties and pensions provided by
the;J*wa for those brsvs def coders ot
the nation, are obligations "never to?
bo forgotten. Tbe widows and or?

the past, has added so much to the
wealth, development and resources,
aud increase of power to this natior,
the asylum of the oppressed of all
nations, shonld be fostered aud en?
couraged by a liberal and just policy.
12. The Convention declares itself
in sympathy with all the oppressed
people which are struggling for their
The New York Herald Mya
The platform upon which this
ticket is presented to tho peoplo is a
work of some ingenuity. Liko an
old campaigner, the Convention
moves with a bold step where the
ground is firm, but treads cautiously
aud gingerly over the boggy places.
The country is first congratulated on
the success of Southern reconstruc?
tion under the policy of Congress-n
proposition which could not be
avoided, good or bad. Next, how?
ever, equal aud impartial suffrage ie
demanded iu tho South, regardless
of race or color, which looks very
much like the abnudoument, as far as
convenient, of the universal negro
suffrage policy of reconstruction.
Next, every form of repudiation ol
the financial obligations of the Go?
vernment is denounced as a crime-n
declaration which is broad enough tc
meet all questioners, but still so du?
bious as to signify nothing. Next,
an equalization of taxes, economy ir
the administration, and an abatement
of corruptions in office are promised
and as these things are sorely needet
to save ns from wreck and ruin, thes<
promises have a pleasant sound. Pro
mises, however, are one thing,' anc
performances are another, as we sei
in the inequalities of the taxations
the lavish expenditures and tin
shocking corruptions in office, fo:
which this party in power is responsi
ble. So far, at all events, this nev
Republican platform is broad enougl
to admit all the various shades o
opinion in the party camp on thi
thing, that thing and tho other
without any promises of a definite o
satisfactory character on the grea
issues of the day.
On the main question (Amlre\
Johnson) the Convention speaks wi tl
a bolder manifestation of earnestnes
and emphasis. He is denounced a
worthy of impeachment for "big!
crimes and misdemeanors," which
being interpreted, means that wbil
the Convention could not uudertak
to pass an ex post facto party la1
against the Republican Senators
Fessenden, Trumbull, Grimes, Hei
(?erson, Fowler, Van Winkle an
Ross-for voting "not guilty," o
the eleventh artiole of impeaohmez
against the aforesaid Johnson, he :
to be hauled up again, and the
every Republican Senator votin
"not guilty" will know where he b<
longe. This is the most significar
feature of this Chicago platform, an
wo dare say that it covers a delibera!
understanding between Washingto
and Chicago that Andrew Johnac
must be removed, so that the in
meuse patronage, which at be
is frittered away in bis bands an
lost to the radical cause, may, i
being turned over to a distributic
by "Old Ben. Wade," be turned to
The platform in question clos
with a sop to our naturalized citizei

and in pronouncing in favor of tl

But it strikes us that if the admini

bas fallen short of its duty on tb

acts of its official representatives
