Speech of Governor Seymour, of New York, at the Ratification Meeting in Cleveland.
Tbe first Fpesker waa Ibe Hon, Hnrstio Sey
mour, of New York, who came forward amid
cheee, and in substance said:
Fellew eilizen$--l aland before you impress
ed with the greatness and glory of our common
country. I have recently met in the Notional
Convention delegates Irnm every portion of
Union, from Slain, iron Ueorgia, from Mary
land, and from California. I have lound a
unity of feeling and of principle pervading
the Democracy of the whole country, which
makes me proud of our party, its stnndard
bearers, its nationality snd its principles.
The Notional Demociatic Convention have
p!aced in nomination for the office of Presi
dent of the Uniied States a man eminent for
his ability, his experience and bis patriotism.
He hss those qualities which give assurance
that bis administration, will be wisely conser
vative, while it will uphold all the rigbta and
interests of the American people. It will be
firm, uniform and dignified. Associated with
him on the ticket is 'the candidate for the
Vice Presidency, youi'g, generous, snd gifted
wilb rare talents. The two uniied satisf the
demands ofour judgement snd the sympathies
of our nature. James Huchanan sml John C.
Breckinridge will be triumphantly elected, for
their nominations commend themselves to the
beard and the judgement of the American
people. Tb? scene piefented when they were
selected to represent! he Democratic sentiment
was one of morI lublimny. I heir names
were shouted forth bvrufn cominc- from the
most remote psrls our land r"';rn the J.'ioifs
of the great lukts at the North, from the bor
ders of the Gulf of Mexico at the South, from
the Atlnniiu and Pacific coasts, from those
who live on tbe euslern slopes of the Alleghe-
iesand the western declivities of the Rocky
.Mountains. It was like thepoela description
of the Alpine storm:

The freauent chnnne of party uames made
by our opponents, murk' the occasion when
tbey have been compelled to acknovtlec'se
the triumphs of our principles, and lo evade
the force of our victories by assuming ntwpo
silioos. Amid all tbess changes the great and
essential dilference in principle remain uu-
chsneed. Tbey have ever been in luvorsi
the policy of. interference. We hove urged
the wisdom of letting men and communities
alone, and have always objected lo a meddling
system. In religion they deem denunciation
better than tolerationy in morsts, coercion
more effective tliau perauaeionr'tn' legislation,
interference with the business of others wiser

most deeply interest io tbe couduct of their
owu affairs. !,. , ... .
I do not stand here to denounce) the raotives
of Others, but lo point cot the errors in their
principle. Uood motives will not preent
the evil result Of mistaken action. The rarf
ical fault in their views have been shown in
the enactment . of coercive , temperance
laws. In Kuow Nothing excitement, and
in the attempt to withhold from the people of
Ihe Territoriesthe right they demand fur them
selves, those of self-government. All of these
deviations from covert principles have been
marked by fierce denunciations of those with
whom they may differ, if any doubt the wis
dom of coercive temperance laws, they are
stigmatized as the promoters of intemperance.
If they uelend the rights oi conscience tuey are
held up ss unfriendly to reiigionand morality.
If they contend lor common political rights ol
sclf govermtnt, they are charged wilb designs
unfavorable to treeuom, we nave seen good
men ao frenzied by excitement tbat they aee
foul aerpenta in the sacramental altar and
deadly poison mingled in Ihe solemnities of
the Last Supper, bo distrustful of the prin
ciples of tbe religion Ibey profess thai they
are unwilling to leave truth free to combat
with error; ao heated by partisan passion that
they believe that liberty will be endangered
if men and comrounitiea left free to defend
tbeirown lights sna interests. They are la
boring under tb delirium uemensol Janalt

One class wish to prevent foreigners from
coming to our shores, as our own forefathers
did. Others think they would become better
citizens if deprived of their political tights.
What would be inougnlor the wisdom which
should propose lo make men belter laborers
by denying tnem the right io acquue proper
ty! or which should auggest that lawyer
would become more skilled in their profession
if they should aot be allowed to become
judges? It is equally absurd lo deny men po
litical privileges it you wisn to animate uiem
with motives for eood conduct.
At this moment persistent attempts are made
to excite tbe prejudices of tbe Nufth against
tbe South. It is said our rights are invaded;
that for a long lime we have suffered from an
aggressive policy; that honor demands that
we now resist further enactments Let us
tee if Ibis is ao. When our Constitution was
made, the populstion of the free and alave
States weie equal, ana the power or govern
ment balanced between them. At ihia day
our population exceeds that oi tbe South more
than four millions, a greater number than the
whole original ponulalu n, and we have th
preponderance of power in both braiichee
the No liona 1 Leg islatu re. The a n hue 1 increase
of tbe Norlb over the Soulb ia more than two
hundred and fifty thousand. ' It is strange
there is danger oi being out-voted by the mi
minority, it is still more strange that the note
of alarm is now sounded, and tbat no danger
waa feared while ihe power waa equally divi
ded bet wee u the Nortb and ibe South. Is
courage or cowardice wbicb aeek a Conflict
with number T - - . .
- But ia said tbat attempt have been and are
now made to reserve thi advantage we have
gained by making additions to our territories
for tbe advautage of the Soulb. is this truef
Since th foundation of our government Flori
da baa been purchased. It is a slave State,
but with a population lesa than that of aingle
counties in Phioand New York. Florida was
bought for the benefit of Northern commerce.
While it with Cuba was in the bands of Spain
she controlled the commerce ol tb Gulf
Mexico. Then csme th purohaao of Louisi
ana by Mr, JtflVriou., Tbi territory reached
from theOulf of Mexico to tb bordra of Canada.
At the Norlhil spread oat to the Pacific Ocean,!
while at th South it waa limited to a narrow
atrip of laud on each aide of the Miiaippi
River. ;;fith a trig exception, it was
Northern acquisition, both aa to value and
mialilu. ' li tiAiiaht IA ciro thS North wes-
urn Sutei a passage to tb Ocean and to the
maritime world. Not one original Southern
State needed this, they ail bordered upon the
Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic. It was ob
tained for your advantage. We then acquired
Texas, which is a slave State. By the war
iih Mexico and by purchase, by common
blond and treasure California bec.-.me ours, and
was made a free Mate by the "Border Ruffi
ana" of the day, and thus the entire Pacific
coast wss gsined to the free Slates. Make tbe
computation and you will find that two-thirds
of the areas an-t nine-tenths of the value of the
acquisitions have or will become free Nates.
1 here invasion then la not upon our share of
numbers nor of territory. But what is the his
tory 61 Ohio? It ia a part of the great region
ceded by Virginia to the Union. Let not its
oit-be polluted by treason or iia peace be dis
turbed hy unpatriotic denunciations of the
Slate which gave it a separate existence. So
mun lor genera! results. I tie political power
of Ibis government bsss passed into our hanclj.
it ia now lo be seen if we will exercise it
fairly. ' If we do not, the South have the dow-
er, and I hope the spirit, to resent any injus
tice. - II they do not ihey mil be untrue lo us
and untrue to themselves. There is no cour
age, no honor, no patriotism in this sectional
But a particular complaint is made. It is
said the Nebraska bill is an outrage which
must le resisted, and that great wrengs are
done under its provisions. Let us look into
this, l lie principle of '.he bill aud the manner
in whirled, isrnloiced are twndistinct things.
We will examine them separately. The prin
ciple 01 Hie Dill is ibis: 1 lie people who go
into irmoie territories ami encounter the hard
ships uf frontier life shall lose none of their
politics! rights by doing so. Why should they
lose tlitmf Why will you withhold from them
lights you demand for yourselvea? They were
capable of self-government befoie tbey left this
aud Other States. WhynotiowT There is
nut a tows nor a county in the Stale which
)vli; not resist to the .o&t any interference by

neighbor, who has i;onc to any c! the lerrito
ries, staked bis fortune upon its good govern
ment?; Does be not know his own interest;.'
Doyoti pretend to understand them 1 If the
settlers in Kansas should attempt to interfere
with your local government would you not
laugh a', its folly! Ia your lolly less when you
interfere with them?-- Some saylet thegeneral
government dictate local laws to the inhab
itonti of the territories. Will you lei thegen
eral government diotote local laws to you?
It will be found that (his bill only contains
those principles of American freedom which
cannot be assailed wiihoul attacking jour own
Hut it is ssid the law is not carried out. It
H is not, let us all unitesnd see that it is fairly
enforced. There need be no difference among
us upon that point. But let us warn you
against aise reports; wehae bad more rumors
of wsr and accout ts of the movements oi srmeu
men and of imnending honor than attended
the war lrUhe urunea, when one uunureu
thausaqd Jcs were sacrificed. There have
feu wrifngs done there; but more ink than
blood has been shed. In view of exciting ap
peals from the pulpit and tbe presa ilia won-
uerful that more lives have not been lout.---More
men were killed al a charter diction in
Louisville-tbsn hare been injured in Kansas,
but not one sermon was preached upon tbe
occasion, and it ia now almost forgotten.
Greater wrongs have been done io your own
Stale and in New York, but virtuous indigna
lion is kept for Kansas alone. But for med
dling interferences, there would have been no
more trouble than in Nebraska or other Terri
tories living under the tame system. When
political purposes have been settled we shall
hesr no more rumors of wsr or murders. Well
meaning clergymen have been imposed upon,
and hereafter they will be the laughing-etock
of fire-side characters. They will be the Cot
ton Mathrrs snd Hugh Peters of Kansas tradi
tions. To those who know Ihe wadts and
conditions of a new country, there is some
thing ludicrous in tba fierce air of the emi
grant from tbe East who graps his rifle with
desdly intent, end carries it with its necnuary
ammunition to (he great discomfort, bszlrd ol
his wife and children in bis long journey to
the Far Welt. In three mouths time he will
sell bis desdly weapon and part with his des
perale purposes for a bottle of Indian Choi
agogae to his Missouri neighbor, who is aiding
lmi through the horrors ot the fever and ague.
In conclusion, let me assure you that our
principles must triumph, for they sre just.
Adhere to the simple msxim of the Democratic
party. Let our country be the asylum ef tbe
oppressed uphold toleration in mattera ol
faun. Leave to iiie pulpit and not to politi
cians to promote relit, ion; rely upon education
to advance mora If , do not believe in legislative
inspirations give to oihera the right of aelf-
government you demand lor yourselves. (Loud

Extract from Senator Douglas' Speech at the
Democratic Ratification Meeting in New
We make the following extract from the
strong, able and logical speech of Senator
Douglas, recently delivered in New York. Mr.
Instead of carrying out their pledges they
now wish to ignore every plank in their plat
form, they desire to dodge all the issues, and in
lieu oi it make ttu a side issue upou the recent
events in the Territory of Kansas. Now, what
are those events! They tell us that civil war.
bloodshed and violence prevail in Kansas.
Why is that' It is the result of the Kansas
Nebraska B ill. Bear in mind, my countrymen,
that the same law, the same act of Congress
which created Kansas created Nebraska; both
Territories depend upon Ibe same organic law,
and have the same lights, the same principles
secured !o them. . Aud yet in Nebraska there
has beer peace, harmony, quiet, good will
everything to gladden the heart of a patriot.
Applause. ' - - - - -
Ou the other bind, in Kansas, you lave re
bellion againit the law, violence, murder,
house-burning bloodshed every crime that
ean disgrace humanity, W by ir it that both
being under Ibe lama organic law In one
Territory very blessing that a free people
could desire results from Ihe Kansas act, while
in tbe other everything that can disgrace free
institutions has occurred? What is the cause
of this difference? You wilt find tbe cause
Ibe action of those men, who, originally op
nosed lo the Nebraska Bill, resolved and d
lermiued to render it odious Ly; tbe vile acts
wbich. should -be-pttpetrated under it.. In
Nebraska,' where, peace prevails, the Aboli
tionists and their emigrant societies don't ex
tend their influence. Foreign interference
waa kept out; tbe people were aiiovea to reg
ulate their own iffmre in their own way, uit
molested and undisturbed by. foreign interfer
ence, iu Nebraska, therefore, the true prin
ciple! of the bill the principle, of isH-govoia
me lit in obedience to the Connlitu lion had
fair plav. Applause. 1 And wherever fair
play hid bee given to that principle, pesce.
luiet and happiness have been the result. On
theo'her hind, in Kansas you find that the
New Englsnd Emigrant Aid Society, through
corporation with a combined capital of 15,
000,000, undertook to regulate Ihe attain of a
t erritory fif een hundred miles off, and lo con
trol the liberties of the people with respect to
their rights and interests in Ihe Territory.
This interference on the port of the Freesoil,
Abolition and Black-Republican parties, by
corporations from New England, io regulate
v cstern affairs, has created in Kansas what
every man supposed it would create civ tl
war, dimension, violence ami bloodshed. For
erery drop of i-loud hat has or shall be shed
in the li-rntory of Kansas, the Black Repub
lican leaders ore responsible.
11 is a part ot their line of policy to get op
eivil war there, and then make political capi
tal out of the innocent blood shed by their tools
and dupes, for the purpose of promoting tbe
interest of ireir candidate in the Presidential
electionr What ia their excuse for not obey
ing the law in Kansas? They tell us the lows
enacted by the territorial Legislature s;e bar
barous and inhuman. The taws comprise a
large volume of at least a thousand pages, con
taining numerous enactments protecting every
interest in society. Yet out of that long listof
laws only two short enactments have been
specified as being either unjust nr improper.
Applause. The first relates to the question
uf slavery, end the second regulates thjeaffain
of election. It ii worthy of remark, and
should never be forgotten, that under neither
of these lews has any one case yet arisin which
was objected to as being improper No case
has ever yet arisen, no writ ever been issued,
no trial ever been had, no act of violence ever
occurrei! under either of these two obnoxious
avis. Then what excuse is there for that vi
olence? These men, these Black-Republi
cans, sent their acen'S there to get up atiife
end bloodshed, to be copied into abolition pa
pers here for political effect. Contributions
are taken up to buy rifles to send to men that
my resist the law, Prerchers of the (Jospel
adobt rifles as the instruments of salivation,
instead of the Holy Scriptures.
'I be pulpit of ihe house of God is turned
into a recruiting office for brigands to go to
Kansas te stir up strife and civil war, in order
that the Inbunr, the Timet, the Keening
Poll and other abolition papers here may par
ade the horrors of the border ruffians, and that
your Sillimans, your Theadore Parkers and
your Lloyd Garrisons may get men to go into
Kansas to burn innocent people's houses, an ',
when writs sre issued against house-burners,
to shoot down the officers of the law, rescue
the house-burner, protect him in his violence,
and then they talk uf the consequences of the
Nebraska bill. Now, it is simply a'ques-ion
in Kansas whether lsw shall prevail or vio
lence triumph it is a queslio i of the supre
macy of the law over rebellion against tbe
constituted authorities. .
The Black-Republicans being in the minor
ity are determined to accomplish by violence
what tbey cannot accomplish at the ballot-box,
and yet we are celled upon in Congress to
bring forward some measure te restore pesce
ia Kansas. My friends, I amsoxious for pesee
in Kansas, and will do snyihing consistent with
the character of a good citizen lo establish
peace and qnietinKauaaa. (Applause.) But
this can only be done by making the criminal
submit to the laws of tbe land. It can only be
done by putting ibe bouse burners in the pen
itentiary, by hanging the murderer unuer tnr
sentence ef the Court, and by protecting the
righta of the people of Kansas aa we protect
the rights of our citizens here. (Applause.)
Mr. Douglas continued bis remarks to aeon-
sideiable length, and explained the passage of
the Kansas-Nebraska Bill,
What His Neighbors Says of Him.
It is no matter of trifling consideration and
'mporlance tbat those who know a man best
should eulogize him most. More especially is

spected fellow citizens; a geutlemsa ofuu

pour widows of this city, who, when the pier
cing blast of each successive bias j of winter
brought shrieks of cold and hunger, and want,
in the frail tenements of poverty, could apply
to th "Buchanan Relief Donation" for their
annual supply of wood, and ait ting down with
their orphaned children in tbe cheerful warmth
ol a blazing fire, lift their hearts in silert grat
