The people of Ohio cannot be misled by the

It is the Infldelity of tbe Republican party to

- that has precipitated tbe con a try into Us present
condition, and brought us to tbe very brink oi
civil war, and that fact is new well understood
by the people. . v . .
Tbei Convention of the 23J declared that
while the Democracy of Ohio always had been,
and now are, faithful to the Constitution and
the Union, and In favor of tbe enforcement of
the laws, yet that they were unwilling to enter
tain tbe discussion of the question of coercion,
until tho North purged itself of its Abolition
heresies, and treasonable doctrines and prac
tices. 'The Democratio masses and oil other
conservative Union men in tbe State, will re-

Proposed National Convention at Louisville, Ky.
The following communication from Z. Cabit
jq., Cbairm&n of the Democratic State Con
vention of Illinois, lately assembled at Spring
ield, was received by the editor of the Siatct-
ian yesterday; ' We regret, that it did not
come to hand beforo the meeting of our State
Convention, to the end that definite action
might then have been takon upon it.
We think that good might result from the
holding of aucb a f cation, and if hold, Ohio
shuold be represented. It will be competent
for tho Congressional uistricts to move in lbs
matter, and select their own delegates, and this
done, no doubt a satisfactory mode could be
adopted for tbe designation of two delegates
from the State at large, without calling togeth
ftt a State Convention for that purpose.
SPRINGFIELD, III., Jan. 17, 1860.
tir: - There ,was hold in this city, on toeiCth
inktant, a large convention ot the Democratic
Partv of tbe State of Illinois
In one of the resolutions of said convention
thev "recommend that a National Convention
be beld at Louisville, Ky., on tbe S2J of Feb
ruary next, to take into oonaideratiun the pres
ent perilous state of our Couutry, and recom
mend to tbe people such just -corrections and
amendments to tbe federal Constitution, as will
be likely to produce peace, harmony and fra
ternal feeling throughout . the whole Union.
That said convention do oonsist of . one dele
gate from each congressional district,, and two
at large, from each of tbe Thirty-Three States
in the Union. And in another resolution it is
provided "that the President of the said Illinois
Democratic State Convention be constituted a
committee to eorrespond with our friends in
tbe other States of the Union on tbe subject of
the Louisville Lonveultun, with authority to
change the time and place of holding said Con
vention. " " ;
in discharge of the duties required of me, al
low me to say the union of these States Is of
prieeless value. I ean safely say that a large
majority of tbe people of Illinois are desirous
to seethe federal Constitution so ameneded as
to secure the tigbu of all taeStaiesof the Con
fedmoy. ., ':
Hoping that your State may take some action
oo the subject, I have tbe honor to be, with great
respect, , i our oneaieut servant,
Z. CASEY, President Ills, Dom. State Convention.
Mr. Shhman, member of Congress from this
State, declares that he "never will, whatever
may be tbe consequences, vote for a proposition
to establish',: protect and uphold slavery any
where on God's earth."
This, the New York Tribune alleges, is the
Republican doctrine in regard to slavery. Then,
the Republicans are, and the Li.tCDLH adminis
tration will be, if controlled by Republican
leaders, inflexibly opposed to the existence of
slavery in any territory aireidy organized, or
that may be hereafter acquired, and to the ad
mission of any more sle.vo S'.atoa. ' If these
news are adhered toby the Republicans In
Congress, and by the incoming administration,
a permanent dissolution cf the Union isinevi
table. - They may attempt coercion, but they
will find it an up hill business. Tns mass of
the people la the North-vest will never sanction
coerclv omoasurcs, anless a compromise Is first
offered, which will bo acceptable to the Unicn
Resignation of Naval Officers.

At a meeting of the soldiers of tbe War of

1. Retailed, That the rights of the Sontb,
like any other part of our common country, are
more likely to be observed and respected in the
Union than by tbe unlawful mode of secession
recommended by some of our sister States; and
we therefore trust our Congressmen turn not a
deaf ear to tbe voice ot patriotism, but exert
their every Influ ence to secure proper redress
and protection of our rights within the brother
hood of States.
2. That secession is noremedv for any evil,
but must of itself lead to untold misfortunes
and a devastation of life and country, that we,
as old soldiers, must forever turn from wiih
heartfelt pain and anguish.
3. That, tor the services we have rendered

(Militia) bill. He denied tbat tbe, bill proposes
to pay lor military services, un me contrary
militia pay tbeUtate for the privilege of serv
ing It. Every man who unites with a military
company equips himself at heavy personal ex
pense, ana they place memseiveain positions
where they are tbe first to be oalled upon to
protect and defend society. It was the original
design oi toe- lainera mat our ireo insuiutious
should depend, not upon standing armies, but
upon a well organized militia, uur constution
was projected upon tow weory, aua me out; oi
maintaining a good militia system is imposed
upon us by onr constitution Tbe militia is
necessary to protect ine ptaca in emergencies,
and it is wise not only to have arms but organ
ized men to use them. The argument of fear
Is fallacious. There is not tbe slight at danger
to be apprebendeed from the small organiza
tions contemplated in tn is Din. He made a
strong appeal in bcbalf of tbe militia of the
State, insisting that same encouragement from
the State is due to tnem, aud denouncing tbe
refusal of tbe appropriation - ol the pitiful sum
oalled lor in tbe bill, as shamefully penurious.
Tbe argument to tbe ousis interposed to de
feat the bill, is untenable.' It is not our prov
ince to inquire whether other States will be
pleased with onr constitutional acts.. When
Kentucky, Virginia, and other stales proposed
to arm themselves, did itacare net And suppose
we do alarm other Slates... What have we to
do with the fears of those mutes wbj have es
tablished batteries on the banks of tbe Missis
sippi, and threaten a diauuiou. Let thtm an
swer for the consequences but let us not sit bere
like cowards and be terrified Irom tbe discharge
of our duty. Tbe times demand we should con
sider them. The people expect us to prepare
for trouble. No man knows What present trou
bles mav bring fortb, and we should be prepar
ed. This people do not waul to fight, but if
thev are compelled to ngbt, they wish to be pre
pared. If Senators do not give beed to tbe
warning, tbe people will fill their places with
men who will do tneir fluty, it was urged by
Mr. Key that this bill looks toward thu evil of
a standing army. There Is it not an element of
standing army in it. But 6000 honest, industri
ous men, enrolled ss malitia, are not ball so
daugerous to tbe countiy, as a hundred wire
woiking pollutions In conventions. While tbe
former could not affect legislation, no man can
denv tbat a resolution of instructions directed
by a political oooveniloo, to vote for a malitia
bill or any otner bin, would conmeud toe vote
of evert man or tne party so instructed. Mr,
Fisher declared his inteUion to vole for tbe
Mr. WHITE quoted tbe Constitution, and
Bill of Rights to show its position upon tbe sub
iect. and argued that this bill contemplated
something in the nature of a standing army.
He objected lo tbe bill, tbat tbe exietiug militia
is ample to discharge all constitutional obllca
tious The bill will introduce tbe genu ot an
evil which will corrupt our liberties. The or
ganization will become a political elements
which finally win exiort its aemanos Horn the
legislature. Let tbe tco In ol war souud, aud
you will see thousands of soldiers from hill and
valley, rusniog toaruiaiorineoonimoooeience.
The object of the Constitution in relation to tbe
militia, is Similr to orgau'ze them tor police,
aud tbis bill is foreign to this object. Tbe ex-
egencies of tbe times do not demaud this fruit
less expeuditme. Wo are not asked for $30,000
for one year, or two, but lor an lodtnoite series
of years. Introduce this evil and it will Indefi
nitely expand. Mr. White at considerable
length showed the evils to grow out of soon a
system, and held mat in time it real danger
the ireemen oi tne country would re lounu suf
ficient for tbe common defense. Let tbe alarm
of war be sounded and 200,000 men in Ohio
would fly to arms. Ono week a lime would dis-
ciplice tbem in every movement required by
any system of tactics. But this is anew leak
sprung in tbe publio treasury, and tie Lord
knows where it will end. Let us hope tbat it
may not be written in tbo history ot this Stale
that it required thirty, fifty or one hundred
tbooatnd to execute a civil writ, or a simple law
of the State or Nation. .
Mr. MoCALL had been disposed to view this
bill as a rather modest militia organization, but
it seems, according to the views or gentlemen,
to be a pbanthom starting up, full of dangers
and fears. He was rather disposed to think it
right to maintain a little organization of this
kind. . If, as some say, we have no arms, it is
time we are collecting some. He dldu't know
there was any reason why wo sbonld sit bere
trembling in the presence of this little bill, be
cause It perhaps may displease somebody. It
is rattier cur duty that we snouid dispose ot all
our duties like men. He would vote for th'e
Mr. ORR had voted for the bill last winter,
but tbe times have changed, and the bill bas
changed with the times. The change in tbe
times has cansed a change of views. Excite
ment is abroad, and it is best we should not In
flame it. It excites a feeing of hostility on
tbe part of other States, and therefore we had
better let it alone. If there were necessity for
such a law at this time, he would vote for It.
but for the foregoing reasons, and because It
entails expense upon an Impoverished treasury.
ir yon provide lor six thousand troops In tbis
bill, hereafter von will have to rnulothem
thoroughly, and there is no telling when the
leak will stop. Bat Ohio is in no danger of in
vasion; no enemy to fight, Sbajl we arm to
fight our brethren? . No! ' May tbe time never
come; but let us not hasten It, but meet this
question with discretion.

Mr. READY, from the same committee, re-
norted back House Bill No. 46. bv Dr. Stout
VTo prevent the amalgamation of the white
and colored races," with a recommendation tbat
A motion to engross lor third readme was do
Division was called, when, on motion of Mr.
Harrison, there was a call of the Senate.
Thirty. ono Senators present, Messrs. Cox and
Brewer being absent ou leave. Further proceed-
togs under tbe call were dispensed with, and tbe
bill came up on its passage.
Mr. fAKlSU regarded tbis a novel measure.
We bad got aloug 58 years without such a mea
sure, lie would lire to Know wbat particular
thing had occurred to make such a law necessary.
There had been disposition upon one side of tbe
Senate not to press its extreme measure at this
particular crisis, but while we withhold such
measures, tbe other side seem disposed to force
their extreme measures upon us requiring us
to take a step down hill. He (Mr. P.) was de
sirous to remain quiet, but if such thing were
diue ho would opeu bis mouth. He had no fear
oi tbe charge of ultraiam or Abolitionism. He
stood upon tbe broad plane of humanity, as
recognized by all civilized nations. But what
is this bill. It seems a violation of the natural
rights of mau. Tbe divine and all intelligent
human law recognizes the right of man to con
sider such things as a matter of taste, and to be
governed by such considerations. He had no
fears for false charges of amalgamation prin-t
ciptes. lie wouia consider amalgamation as
inexpedient, and would not advise it. But
tho people of Ohio with whom he is acanant-
ed have no such disposition. If any class of
whites bave such tastes it Is only those who
are reduced to the lowest depths of - moral de
gradation. There are countries where laws to
firevent elicit intercourse between the races are
oudly called for, but they are not oalled lor in
Ohio thank God! If you should strikeout the
intermarriage clause he might ultimately vote
tor it, but not as It is. He objected to tbe law
again, became it implies an eyU which does
not exist. There might bs such an evil as illicit
Intercourse between the races, and it is well to
prevent it as much as possible, but that there is
lntemarriage between the two races in Ohio, Is
an imputation upon tbe fair fame of Ohio which
be would resent. There ie not one marriage of
this kind in 50,000 in Ohio. But this bill U
a mere Buncombe. It la designed to see how
far the Republicans will go back. It Is Intend
ed to charge, if the bill ia defeated, that we are
amaigamationiats. tie did not wish lo say
anything against Democrats on this subject,
though ne could oo so, and he could say some
thing in their favor. But against the Renub
licaus no charges implied in this bill
could be laid Discoursing upon the subjeot of
amalgamation, Mr. Parish reminded the. Hen
ate that a distinguished citizen of Kentucky, who
bad been guilty ot tbe thing npeoibed inltbis
bill, was absolutely eleoted Vioe President ol
tbe United States. Mr. Pariah closed by de
nouncing tbe bill as an imputation upon the fair
fame or Ohio, and del ending the negroes from
persecution in this country, not Demg responei
ble for their own misfortunes. .
Mr. HARRISON wholly dissented from the
leoliEgH, sentiments and principles or tbe Sena
tor from Erie, so far as tbey relate to tbe merits
of this bill; and he wholly dissented from his
views upon current national qoeetioos. Tbe
Senator had intimated threats that in certain
events certain portions of tbe Republican party
would withdraw irom it. tie was not to be de
terred Irom discharging his whole duty regard
less of any intimidations. Where his country
and his party were hrongbt into contact, he
would let bis party slide.'
Mr. PARISH-So will I. ' '
Mr. HARRISON Bid he would faithfully
carry out every olearly defined principle of the
party, and there was nothing lo ita principles
which make it inoonsistant to exercise every
possible honorable effort at adjustment of our
national differences. He would go all lengths
to settle the distractions of the couutrv.
The Senator from Erie had Intimated
that there Is design to persecute a class of
inhabitants. He. Mr. Harrison, had na nre-
Udioe against any class, but he was in iavor of
maxipguhto, the home ol tbe whit eman. He
v would do every thing be squid constitutionally do ,
to discourage lurtntr immigration Into Ubio of tbe
African, and to oarry Out his polloy of keeping
Ohio for tbe white man, he would support this
bill. He would do nought to persecute the
African. He deprecated as muoh as any man
ooulddo.tbe first act of importation which
brought them into this couutry- He believed
God had intended Africa for the black
man, and America for tbo white man, and the
bringing of the African into this country, had
beau attended by all tbe sad consequences
wnicn wesnouia expect to iqiiowtne yidation
of natural laws. It was a, part of his polioy in
keeping Qbio for white men to discourage amal
gamation, and therefore be advocated this bill.
it is not intended to persecute the African.
neither is It intended for buncombe so far as
he was Involved- (f he desired buncombe,
be probably would vote for the bill, but
be desired to do right. He supposed
some of his constituents would be dis
pleased with it but he hoped not. It as his
opinion that all efforts to amalgamate the two
raoes would work to the destruction of bath, and
be would do everything rogardless of threats or
opposition to discourage it.
