mended by Judge Thossun, wh adopted witl
but few dissenting voices.
Th. (W molution declares that the Democ
racy of Ohio have always heretofore been, and
Jntl to the Constitution, obedient
to th federal laws, and that thoy respect the
constitutional rights and regard the interests
II niir atatar States.' '
The second resolution declares the willing-
nM of our party in an effort to save tbe Union,
to eompromiso out present national uuueuiw

State, or any other plan, honorable to an. yes
.-,.tm tha nacaa&Uv ol A national convention
Of all the States, for the purpose of proposing
amendments to the Constitution. . -Tha
third recommends and requests the (Jen
ral Assembly of Ohio to make application to
Congress to call convention, pursuant 10 me
fifth article of the Constitution, for the purpose
of proposing amendments thereto. ,
The fourth instructs the President of the Con
veutioa to communicate the third resolution to
the presiding officers of the General Assembly,
with a request that the same maybe laid before
their respective Houses. -
The fifth resolution, as adopted, is as fol
lows: .
Retolved, That the two hundred thousand De
mocrats of Ohio send to the people of the Uni
ted States, both North and South, greeting:
And when the people of , the North shall have
fulfilled their duties to the Constitution and
tbe South then, and not until then, will it be
proper for them to take into consideration the
question of the right and propriety of coercion.
This resolution is clear and distinct, and it
would be well for the late triumphant party In
this State, and the dominant party In tbe Gen
eral Assembly, to give to It, as well as to the
third resolution, that consideration which their,
importance demands.
The North must do its whole duty to he Con
titntion and the South. The partizin must be
thrown aside, abd a rigid self examination must
be bad, and whereio we, In the free States have
done wrong, in our legislation, ln! the action of
our Executives, in the false doctrines we have
tanoht. mm must correct our past errors and die
nh.rire our duties to the Constitution and the
southern portion of the confederacy, and until
this be dane, the Democratic masses of Ohio
will not consider the question of the coercion of
a State. They are devoted to the Union and
tbe Constitution, obedient to the federal laws,
and they insist that wherein the first has been vi
olated by northern legislation, and the se
cond nullified in northern States, a complete
and thorough reform must.take place, so that
we may go forth as a State, to act our part in
the events of an unknown future, purged from
all wrong-doing, and with the evidence, plain,
palpable and satisfactory, that a spirit of Justice
f,.i,n(i. and fidelity to the compact of the
Union, has been Installed, and wiU be hereafter
maintained, in all the free States or the uomea
eracy; and then, and not till then, will the Dem
ocratic party of Ohio be prepared to consider
and discuss the question of coercion.
We notice that our cotemporary of the Jour
nml in this morninic'a issue, is not satisfied with
tha nntneedines of the Convention. We are not
surprised at this. That paper is the represents
tianf tha ultra wine of its party the Gid
dings, Chati and .BimiiRHorf interest. It
and it) class are as decided disunionista,,, as tbe
Charleston Jh'rfeiir,and1lHaTr AndYcr,and
their school of ipoliticians, in the South: We
hope.however.la the present emergency, that
that portion of the Republicans who love the
Union, will separate themselves from the mad
f anatios who have done so much to precipitate
the country into its present aad condition, ana
co-operate with the Democratic party in all
honorable and patriotic efforts to save the Un
ion from its Impending danger . '

his election to tbe Presidency of tb Conven
tion, and request hla presence. Tbe Commit
tee, after a abort absence, returned with the
President elect, and through the President of
the temporary .organisation, presented him to
th Convention.
Mr. Jewett, upon taking the Cbalr, made an
able and eloquent speech in behalf of ths Un
ion of these States, counseling such action by
tb Convention as shall tend to avert the danger
which snrroundsui as a Nation, and bring about
ones mors harmony .union, and good-feeling, be
tween th people of all lections of this great
Republic. He concluded by tendering the Con
ration bis thanks for the honor conferred npon
bim in bis election to preside oyer Its delibera
tions. ; . , : '
Mr. Jiwett'i remarks fere received with
marked pleaenre'and applause by th C craven-
lon,y
Judge Thuimsn was then cilled for. He
came forward and delivered a speech of great
force, power and patriotism.' It was an lo-
auent appeal for the Union an unanswerable
argument against th coerolon of a Stats
abounding with hlstorlo allusions and Illustra
tions, tending to show the effects of civil war,
and ths impossibility of subjugating tbe South
ern States, and tbe folly of attempting it. The
causes of existing difficulties and dangers were
given, and the hop was expressed that the Con
vention might so something to remove tbe for
mer and avert the latter, k... , . ; , '
Hon. B. B. Taylor, of Kentucky, (formerly
of Ohio,) being present, was, upon motion, Invi
ted to speak: He took tbs stand, and delivered
an elaborate speech in favor ot Compromise and
the Union. II expressed the hope, that tb
aotion of tbe Conventtlon would be suoh as to
enable him to goback to Kentucky and say to
to the Legislature now in session there, that the
patrlotio and conservative citizens of Ohio,
would be able to aid In doing justice to the
South, and thus avert the Impending danger to
his glorious Unton of ours. Before concluding
be gave way to the Committee ou Resolutions,
who came in prepared to report.
Judge R. P. Ranney, Chairman of the Com
tuittee, then read tbe following
RESOLUTIONS:
1st. Rnolvrd, That since tbe admission of
Ohio as one of the United States, the Demo
cratic party of the State has uaiibrmaly shown
devotion to tbe Union, allegience to tbe Con
stitution, obedience to the Federal laws, and
respect for the Constitutional rights, and re
gard for the Interests of each of her Sister
States; and that the same views and sentiments
now animate tbe Democrats of Ohio.
2nd. Rtiohed. That while we greatfuily ac
knowledge the services of those of our public
men In Congress, who are striving to prerve
tbe Union, and thus to protect the best Interests
of our nation, and tbe cause of Constitutional
liberty among mankind, and while we would ac
cept with joy the compromise measures known
ss the Crittenden Resolutions, or the proposi
tions of Senators Bigler, or Douglas, or those
known as the "Border States" Resolutions, as
a basis of settlement of our national difficul
ties; or any other settlement of our affairs hon
orable to us all, which can be effected by con
ciliation and compromise, and, mutual conces
sions of all concerned, to secure the safety and
perpetuity of the Union: yet we believe that the
questions that disturb tbe country, are of such
a character and have existed lor so long a
period, that the time bis arrived when the peo
ple of tbe whole country should avail them
selves of that provision of the Constitution,
which requires Uougress upon tbe application ol
tho Legislatures ul two thirds of tbe several
States, to call a convention of all tbe States,
for proposing amendments thereto.
3d. Reiohcd, Tbat this convention does recom
mend and request tne uenerai Assemoiy ot tnis
State, now in session, to make application to
Congress to call a convention, pursuant to ?tbe
tilth article of the Constitution of the United
State, for the purpose tf propping amendments
thereto.
4th. Reiolvtd, Tbat tbe President of this Con
vention be Instructed to communicate the fore
going 3d resolution to tbe presiding officers of
tho General Assembly, with the request that
,hpv nrittpnt tha asms to thair respective
- J I . ' r A

And when the people ot th North shall hive

Tbe first four Resolutions of the foregoing
serin were unamioutly adopted by the Conven
tion Judge Key offered a substitute for the
fifth, and made a speech In favor ol it. After
considerable further discussion, which was par
ticipated in by Judge Ranny, Gen. Bchi.eich,
Mr. Connell, Judge A . G. W, Carter, Judge
Warden, Mr. Flago, Gov. Medary, Judge
Thurman, and others, Judge Warden proposed
Resolution to take the place of Julge Key's
substitute for the fifth Resolution, which was
accepted by the latter. . Judge .Thurman then
proposed a slight modification of the fifth Reso
lution, as first proposed by the Committee, when
the substitute was withdrawn, and the Resolu
tion as it Is given above was adopted by an al
most nnanlmous vote, w
The following resolution was adopted:

Hon. B. B. Taylor then concluded hm speech
when the Convention voted that the proceed
ings be published in tbe Democratic papers of
the State, after which it adjourned.
The Working Men's Convention in Philadelphia.
The adjourned meeting of the delegates rep
resenting the industrial interests of Philadelphia,
was held on Saturday evening, at Spring Gar
den Hall, Dr. A. L. Kennedy in the Cbalr
The number of delegates was largely increased
over the former meeting. The Committee on
resolutions made a report whloh was amended
and adopted In the following form:
AefoW,That we, delegations of the work
ing men of tbe city of Philadelphia, assembled
without distinction of party, are fully convinced
of tbe inestimable value of the union of these
United States under a Federal Government, and
we are confident that all will agree that nothlne
should be permitted to check it, and Inasmuch
ss enemies of the Union are now usulng every
effort to dissolve It, our duty is to declare our
determination to resist resolutely every such
effort, and to nse all our power to maintain uni
ty and peace.
Jtoolwd, That the recommendation of John
J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, as amendment to
the Constitution of the United States, be ap
provrd of by this meeting, and that the Sena
tors and Representatives frtru this State in tbe
Senate of the United States and the Congress
thereof, be requested to nse all honorable
mean in their power, that said recommenda
tion) be submitted for th people of our whole
country, for their aeeeptance or rejection.
Tb following paragraph 1 taken from th
report of the highly Interesting discussion on
the second resolution:
Philip Lowrle insisted that we should tell the
demagogues at wasbington what we want.
Cheers. And be defied them to oppose the re
commendations of the freemen of America.

lution. Air. Crittenden is a venerable states
man, not identified with tbe two great parties of
the country, and, with on toot in tn grave,
he come forward liks Henry Clay, with a com
promise tbat treats all parts of lbs country
alike. Cheers Let tbs workiogmen, in tones
or thunder, say to (congressmen tney win nave
a compromise. Cheers. If they don't give it,
the workiogmen can and will burl them from
nower. It is time that mechanic! steped for

country. The speaker defied tbe representatives
of the people to disregard tbeir wishes. .
After appointing a Committee to make ar
rangements for a mass meeting of the working-
men of.Philadelphia, in Independence Square, on
Satnrdav evenine next, the Convention ad
journed.
Tbe following is tb closing paragraph of a
long article In the Newburyport, Mass , Herald.
Tbe editor supported Lincoln, at the last elec
tion, but is now, a will be inferred from the
extract below, a very moderate Republican
We may see disunion but tbe parts will re
unite, we may see fragments thrown from tbe
central pivot, but as sure as tbe law of gravi
tation brings back what Is hurled from the sur
face of the earth, so sure must all here tend to
tb centre. The very configuration of (he con
tinent, the formation of th mountain ranges,
the scooping out of ths valleys, th conjoining
of th lakes, and the courses of (ho rivers, are
nature's guarantee of our unity. I( Is only
now a question whether unity shall grow with
fieeoe and brotherly affection, or whether vlo
eno shall reign, blood flaw, and then free
dom and union be sought afterwards. If we
will quiet our passions and forget our parties
ws may agree today each may compromise
to day. If not, we fight wepour our treasure,
we wast life, we alienate affections, but neith

in the snd ws shall make peace and compromise
as we can to-day, snd not wblt better.
The Republican Objection to a Comprmise Answered.
awared.
We quote the following paragVagh from the
National Intelligencer, and wish, our Republican
friends to read it and lay it to heart:
"To those who refuse to offer' or accept any
compromise on tbe ground tbat tbey will not
compromise with 'traitors,' we beg to suggest
that tbey are not required and have not been
requested to do so. Those who are working to
precipitate the South into a revolution fear noth -Ing
so much as a compromise. Tbey have con
sequently made no demands save such as they
well knew were too extravagant to be complied
with. But even it' we be justified m refusing to
do what is plainly our duty as, for instance,
to repeal such personal lioerty bills as may op
crate to hinder or prevent the faithful execu
tion of the fugitive slave law, and to furnish
additional remedies in case of unlawful resis
tance to tho same because we will not be 'co
erced' into doing it by the violence' of 'robels, 'it
is still incumbent upon us to strengthen, by
honorable concessions, tbe hands of those who,
particularly In the Border States, are working
micht and main for the Constitution aud the
Union. Br such concessions. If Boeedilr made,
we can secure tbe masses who are wavering, and
over whom tbe secessionists are daily gUning
greater ascendency, by representing to them the
uooonciliatorylemcanor of the Republicans, as
the best evidence ot tbeir hostility to tneouin.
Bv maklniran honorable compromise, tbe lead
ers of that party may retain the Border States
in the Union, and thereby place m In a better
position to bring back the aecedera by peace
able means. By refusing to make one, tney
mav nresorve their political consistency, and
receive theirreward in tbe execrations of
country conrulBed with civil war."
The Battery at Vicksburg.
Tbe Governor of Mississippi, in a special
message to the Legislature of that State, dated
the 15th inst., alludes to the battery at Vicks-
burg In the following terms:
"Being advised by the Governor of Louisana
that he had reason to believe that an expedition
would be tent down the Miieititppi rtver to rein
force the Oarriton of th Forti and Areenal of
that State, I sent Capt. Kerr with sixteen ot tbe
Jackson Artillery Company, and ordered Capt.
H. H. Miller to call out tbe Volunteer Com
panies of Vicksburg, and take sue A volition at

from the Northern State dacendmg thi river
Learning that the torts and Arsenals were fully
garrisoned by Louisiana, I have directed Capt.

position they had taken."
Fight with the Indians.
A dispatch from Independence, Mo., states

his command from Fort Union, came across a

THIRD XEADINOS.
U.B No. 146 Further to organize and dis
cipline the Volunteer Militia better known as
the bill to provide for the organization of fifteen
regiments ot troops.
Mr. JONES understood this to be a bill for a
slruding organized militia in Ohio, lie under
stood tbat to make it eflioient it would require
an expenditure of $300,000 or $400,000. It
calls for 6,000 men. He believed there are not
arm s enough In the State for them.
Mr. SCI1LEICH corrected tbe last remark.
alleging that there (are over 6,000 stand of
arms in first rale condition.
Mr. JONES thought gentlemen should Inoulre
Into the facts before pausing the bill.
Alr.SCHLbicti said "we have inuuired and
what we say Is correct."
Mr. JOWLS said be bad Inqiied and was in
formed by good military authority that several
hundred thousand dollars would be necessary' to
make the law efliciont. He opposed the bill,
because it is unnecessary; because it is not de
sirable at this particular time; becauee of the
condition ol the Treasury; because the people
don't want to pay taxes for it; because It would
become a political engine.- it could not pass
In ordinary times. It is pressed at this time,
because It Is supposed it can De put through.
Ask,, and the Quartermaster General - will
tell you" this" meSSUfS-esSfiOt-bB-put. Into
operation under eight months. It is claimed
as one argument that this is necessary as a prn
dential measure. He would (ay it is inefficient.
He disliked it as a peace measure.; . Here be
would remark that when It becomes necessary,
he whould resist even his father or brother with
violence in defeno of the flag of tbe country,
it tney were in reoeuion against tnat nag. iJut
hero be would say to the gentlemen of th oth
er aide (Democrats) if they continue, as tbey
did yesterday, in their State Convention, tc ex
cite, inflame and misrepresent their fellow-oiti-
seus, the time will come that w shall all unite
as brothers in a common patriotic cause, and
right or wrong, we will maintain tbe nig, the
laws sna tne nonor oi our country. Let gentle
men be warned lest tbey go too far. In conclu
sion, Mr. Jones repeated bis objections to th
bill. . -. c . -
Mr. SCHLEICH dented that tbs measure has
any party character. - It Is a measure of Justice
to one department Of tne state. ' Whatever tbe
Democratic party may have done yesterday, re
gardiog tbs vexed doctrine of coercion is not in
volved in ths passage of this bill. Mr. S. then
proceeded to state tbe oharaoter of tbe bill, and
said tbe Senator from Delaware is In error con
cerning the arms of the State. " The official re
port or the proper military officer of Ohio,
shows there Is a suffloient number of arms in
the State tor tbe purposes contemplated in
th bill. At present there are but 1200 or
ganized militia in the State now to take ad
vantage of tbe bill. Its mistake to suppose
a large amount of money will be required for
this measure. The bill calls for what isnecssa
ry to preserve the public arms. At tha greatest
extent only GOOOmen percevlng $5 each are au
thorized. If the Senator objects to tbe peace estab
lishment, let him lay bis objections against tbe
Constitution of th Stat, Dot against tblsj mess
nre. Now concerning the possibility of a col
lision with other States, he believed in tha
right of the government to enforce th laws, bnt
to encage in war now o believed would be
criminal. Every peaee measure should be first
exhausted before resort to force. But the tlm
may come when It will be the duty of the gov
ernment to require our armed services, sod
then it will be our dntv to meet resltanos of
rebellious citizens. When that tlm come,
then we will sustain the flag of our country and
tb government. Thi be believed to be tbe
position of all th Democracy of Ohio. ' '
mt. iu.x opposed tn run became it waun.
accessary and exciting at this time; because he
did not wish to foster a military splrlt-tbere Is
already too much of it, because it is a political
element. JNo sooner does it raise its neao tnsn
it thrusts it Into the Senate. It is a dangerous
spirit. It threatens legislators for daring to
oppose military measures, f oster its growin
and it will Intimidate your members ot tbe leg
islature; encourage it, and it will overwhelm
von. He would not encourage it.
Air. UAtirin,ijL saiu in soul ana spirit m
the bill is tbe care and preservation of the pub
lio arms, with another associative Idea. He
agreed with Mr. Key about the evil infiuenoes
of a military power. But why have arms un
a.a r-t a nnrlll Vk U L -
less we bave men who Know now to ubo mem i
Why bave a system, and have it dereotlvel
Why have half, and not the whole of the shares?
Now. In relation to tbe obiectiona oi mr. Jones
annnArniue the armament, the Governor's mCS
Sage shows tbat we have 6,000 muskets In good
condition. ' '
We should bave our system in order so It can be
tired if nceeasary. It appears we bave 34,000
muskets of which about one sixth are in service.
able condition, and w propose means te keep
the remainder In good condition. Tin bill
merely provides tbat those who enroll according
to law, shall bave only $j per annum each, to
pay armory expenses. This is a thing we ought
of rinbt to do. ' The State should protect its
property, and tbat la all this bill requires, the
militia organization wbicn It authorizes win
prove simply a nucleus for any force which em
ergency may renaer necessary.
Mr. GARFIELD went Into the military sta
tistics of other States, North and West, to show
tbat Ohio is far inferior to all others in
military arms, and went on to show that the
pending bill did not contain one word looking to
"coercion." With reference to this word be
said much mischief bad been done by the misuse
of the word. Gentlemen had spoke of "coercing
sovereign State." - No man ot any party en
tertains suoh an Idea. If by "coering a State"
they mean "enforcing the laws" upon one man
or a tbousani wno aiBoney or resist tne taws
thev are rieht. but if tbey mean absolutely "co
ercion ot a sovereign State," they Indulge In
absurd abstractions. ' No man anywhere thinks
of it. M. G. concluded by asserting that it la
the ceneral sentiment of tbe people of the State
of Ohio, tbat ber militia system should be put
upon a more emolent looting, tuner states.
Virginia, Kentucky, &o., may do five times as
much, ana wbat tney oo is not regaroea as a
hostile demonstration, nor should-this measure
be so recarded. ......
Mr. KEY said the Senator (Garfield) held that
the main design of this bill is to take care of and
preserve the arms. I bat is to say we employ
6000 men for that purpose. Here seems to be
a treat disparity between means and objects
But if this is meant as a war measure it is in
sufficient. - If other States have been enoour-
airinff the militarv sentiment of Its people, it is
our duty to oppose it. It is dangerous, and if
we give it scope it win overwneim our linar
ties. Mr. Key went on to show the want
of security of the mllitay arms In tbe South
ern oart of the etate, because - the civil
power baa been sufficient. There might
be reason for such a force in the north eastern
cart of tbe State to execute tbe federal laws
If so be did not know tbat he had objection to a
local measure to execute such laws, On tbe
questlon'of economy he said there is no drain
upon the Treasury equal to tbat for military
purposes. We are warned with reference to
expenditures even for trifling matters of neces
slty, because the people could not sustain It.
This of Itself, is a strong reason why we should
not adopt this new mode of expenditure. No
other is so liable to abuse none so dangerous.
Mr. GARFIELD said in reply to Mr. Key's
crltiolsm of his Btatement of tbe character of
the bill, tbat it was not the design of the State
to keep the arms in tha arsenal, but to put
them in tbe bands ot meu lor public deience.
In reference to tbe remark oonoerning tbe north
eastern portion of . the States, he declar
ed the loyalty of the citizens of that sec
tion.. He was very sure that it had not become
necessary at Cleveland, or elsewhere In the
north east, to call out three companies of mill
tary to protect policemen and keep them from
being killed by a mob, as it nas been necessary
to do within three weeks, at Cincinnati. . -
Mr. SCHLEICH thought tho argument ad
pecuniam unworthy and contended tbat the
militia had not been properly treated by the
legislature. Me was astonished tbat tbe Sen
ator (Key) born in Kentucky, "(he dark and
bloody eionnd" should imagine himself inves
ted by the 6000 of Ohio in military panoply,
and in one Dream pro loss nis lear ot tnem, and
In tbe next defy them. Mr. S. went on to vin
dicate tbsO.V.M. as peaceable, law-abiding
people , or nign cnaraoter, and demonstrated
that no man can enroll himself according to
law at less cost to himself than $15, and it is
but fair tbat the State should make up a small
portion of that sum. He continued to argue the
necessity oi sucn a system lor seir protection in
case of emergency. Mr. Scbleioh la replv to a
suggestion of Mr; Jones eald.thatthe volunteers
suddenly collected are in the nature of a
rabble, unfit for instant service.
- Mr. MOORE vindicated the volunteers of
Ohio against the charge of being a rabble. He
had all confidence in the noble volunteers. They
are the.bulwark of the country. Twice in Mex
ico they saved General Taylor's honor, snd if
duty should now call tbem, &0,UU0 brave and
patriotlo volunteers would spring to arms in de
fence of the conntrv.
Mr. SCHLEICH explained that he did not
characterize the volunteers to Mexico as a ra
ble, but bad meant that tbey were not organized,
disciplined troops, even in sixty days from ths
time tbey were enrolled.
Mr. MOORE proceeded to oppose tbe bill be
cause It is inflammatory at this time.
Mr. f istiLK expressed desire to speak upon
tbe subject, and moved a recess until 3 P. M.,
