COSVIXTION AT CINCIN
NATI ON THE 4tH ,
OF JUNE, 1S-56.
Resolved,. That tho American De
mocracy placo their trust in the intei
ligenc?, the patriotism, and the dis
criminate justice of the American
people. .
f . Resolved, That we regard this as
" a distinctive feature, of our political
creed,' which we are proud to main
tain baforo the world, as the great
'moral element in a form of government
Eprirfging from and upheld by the
popular will; and we contrast it with
, the creed and practice of Federalism,
" under whatever name or form, which
seeks to palsy the will of the consti
tuent, and which conceives no impos
ture too monstrous" for the popular
'credulity.

; jjjiCgaies assemuieu in a general
uonvenuou, coming wgemer in a
spirit of concord, of devotion to the
doctrines and fa"th of a free represcn
V tative government, and appealing to
"V their fellow citizens for tho rectitude
"of their intentionsrenewand reassert,
before the American people, the de-
. ciaranon oi principles avowea oy tnem
wncn, on lormer. occasions, in gener
.. al Convention, they have presented
their candidates for the popular suf-
frages. .
i. lnac tno federal uovernment;
is one of limited powers, derived
solely from the Constitution, and the
grants oi power mnae tnerem ougnt
to be strictly construed by all the De
partments and agents of the Govern
ment, and that it is inexpedient and
dangerous to exercise doubtful con
Btituticnal powers. ;
' 2. That thb Constitution does not
confer upon the General Government
the power to commence and carry on
a general system of internal improve-
. ments.
, . 3. That the Constitution does not
"confer authority upon the Federal
Government directly or indirectly to
:- assume the debts of the several States,
. contracted for local internal improve
" rnents, oc other State purposes; nor
.would such . assumntion be iust and
: . .
. .expedient '
' 4. That justice and sound policy
lomia uio xeuerai uovernment - to
foster one branch of industry to the
detriment of any other, or to ch?rish
- tho interests of one -' portion to the
injerj' of another portion of our com
mon country; that every citizen and
ipyery section of' thecountry has a
. right to demacd and insist upon : an
eqa;dity'cf rights and privileges; and
to complete and ample protection ' of
persons and property from domestic
violence and foreign aggression.
6 That- it is the; duty of every
branch: of the G overnment to enforce
nr practice tha most rigid economy
in conducting our public affairs, and
that no more revenue
raised than is. required to defray "the
necessary cxp5ncs cf the Govern
ment, and fur the gradual but certain
extinction of the public debt
' ,G, That the proceeds of the public
lands ought to be sacredly, applied to
the niticnal.cljects specified in'the
Constitution; and that we are opposed
to any law for the distribution of
puch proceeds among the States, as
alike inexpedient in policy and repug
nant to the Constitution.
7. That Congress has no power to
charter a national bank; that we be
lieve such an institution one of dead
ly hostility to ths lest interests ot
the country, dangerous to our republi
can iostitutions and the liberties of
tho people; and calculated to place
the business , cf the country within
the control of a concentrated , money
power, and aboye the laws and the will
of the people: and the result of Dem
ocratic legislation in this and all oth
er hnancial measures, upon which is
sues have been made between the
two political parties of th i country,
have demonstrated . to, candid and
practial men of all parties their sound
ness, safety, and utility in all business
pursuits.. . ' . .
8. That the separation of the mon
eys of the government from the bank
ing , institutions is indispensable to
the safety of the funds of the Gov
ernment and the rights of the people.
9. That we are decidedly opposed
to taking from the President the qual
ified veto power by which he is ena
bled under restrictions and , responsi
bilities amply sufficient to guard the
public interests,' to suspend the pas
sage of a bill whose merits cannot se
cure the approval of two-thirds of the
Senate and House of Representatives,
until the judgment of the people can
be obtained thereon, and which; ha3
saved the American people from the
corrupt and tyrannical domination of
the Bank of tha United States, and
from a corrupting system .of ' general
internal improvements.
10, That the liberal principles em
bodied by Jefferson in the Declara
tion of Independence, and sanctioned
in the Constitution, which makes
ours the land of liberty, and the as
ylum of. the oppressed of every na
tion, have ever been cardinal princv
pics in the Democratic faith, and ev
ery attempt to abridge the privilege
of becoming citizens and the ownels
of soil among us, ought to bo resisted
with the same spirit which swept the
alien and sedition laws from oar stat
ute books. '
And Whereas, since the foregoing
declaration was uniformly, adopted by
our predecessors in National conven
tions, and adverse political and reli
gious tests has been secretly, organi
zed by a party claiming to be exclu
sively American, it is proper that
the American Democracy should
clearly define its relations thereto and
declare its determined , opposition to
all secret political societies, by what
ever name they may be called. .
Resolved, That the foundation of j
this union of States having been laid
in its prosperity and pre-eminent ex
ample in free Government, built up
on entire freedom in matters of ; reli
gions concernment, and ho respect of
persons in regard to rank or place of
birth, no party can justly be deemed
national, constitutional, or in accord
ance with American principles, which
bases its. exclusive organization upon
religious opinions or accidental birthplace.-
And hence a political cru
sade in the nineteenth century and in
the United States of America, a
gainst Catholics and foreign-born,- is
neither justified by the past history
nor the future prospects of the country;
nor in unison with the spirit of toler
ation and enlarged freedom which pe
culiarlydistinguishes the American
S3stem of popular government. "
: Rcsotvcd, That wo reiterate with
renewed energy of purpose,' tho well
considered declarations of former
conventions upon the sectional issue,
domestic slavery, and concerning the
reserved rights of tho States, which
are as follows:'"'- . :r : '
: 1. That Congress has no.Dowcr.
unuer me constitution, to interfere
with or, control the domestic ; institu
tions of the several States; and that
such States are tho solo and proper
judges of everything ar.nertaininsr to
their own affairs, not prohibited by
the Constitution; that all efforts of
the abolitionists er others; made to
iuduco Congress ' io interfere with
questions of slavery, or to take incip
ient steps in relation thereto, are Cal
culated to lead to the most alarming
and dangerous consequences, and thai
aH such efibrts have an' incvitaWp
tendency to diminish the hanmness of
tne people, ana endanger the stability
auu jewiuency oi tne Union, and
ought not be countenanced by any
friend of bur political institutions. , -
2. That the foregoing proposition
covers, and. was intended to embrace,
the Whole eobiect. of slairarv ttrAi.
'ought "to: bejti6n' in Cooffrese: and therefore thfl!
Democratic party of tne Union,
standingon this national platform,
will abide by and adhere to . a faithful
execution of the facts known as the
Compromise measures, settled by the
Congress of 1850; . nho act' for re
claiming fugitive slaves from6crvico
ot labor,'-' included; which act being
designed to carry out an express pro
vision " of the " Constitution, cannot
with fidelity thereto, be repealed or
so changed as to destroy or impair its
tfficiencv. .
3. That the Democratic party
will resist nil attempts at renewing,
in Congress or out of it, the ngita
ti?ri"bf the slavery question under
whatever shape or color the attempt
may be mado.
4. That the Democratic party
nill. faithfully abide by: and uphold
the principles laid down in the. Ken
tucky and Virginia resolutions of 1793,
and in the report of - Mr. Madison
to the Virginia Legislature, in 1799;
that it adopts those principles as
constituting one of the main founda
tions of its political creed, and is
rolved to carry them out in their
obvious meaning and import
, Arid that we may ' more distinctly
meet the issue on which a sectional
party subsisting exclusively on sla
very agitation, now relies to test the
fidelity of . the people North add
South, to the .Constitution and the
Union:- '
Resolved, .That, claiming v fellow
ship with and desiring the co-operation
of all who regard tho preserva
tion of the Union under the Con
stitution as the paramount issue-,
and repudiating all sectional parties
and platforms concerning, domestic
slavery, and armed resistance to law
in the Territories; and whoso avowed
purposes if consummated must end in
civil war and disunion the Ameri
can Democracy recognize and adopt
the principles contained in the or
ganic laws establishing the Territo
ries of Kansas and Nebraska, as'
embodyirig tho only sound and safe
solution of the "slavery question,"
upon which the great national idea
of the people of this whole country
can repose in its determined conser
vatism of the Vmon rtfon-int erf cr
ance by Congress with Slavery in the
Territories or in the District of Co
lumbia. -.
2. That this was the basis of the
Compromises ofl850coDfirmed by
both the Democratic and Whig par
ties, in national conventions ratified
by the people in the election 'of 1852
and rightly applied to the organiza
tion of Territories in 1854. '
3. That by the uniform applica
tion of this Democratic principle to
the organization of Territories, and
to the admission of new States, with
or without domestic slavery, as they
may elect the equal rights of alii
the btates will be preserved intact
the original compacts of the Consti
tution maintained inyiolato and the
perpetuity and expansion of this
jUnion insured toils utmost capacity
of embracing iu peace and harmony
every future American Statej tha't
may be constituted or'annexed with
a republican form of government.
Resolved, .That we recognize the
right of the' people of all the Ter
ntones, including Kansas and ,Nc
braska, acting through the legally
and fairly' expressed will of a maior-
ity of actual residents, and whenever
the number, of inhabitants justifies
it, to form ! a Constitution . with or
without domestic slavery; and be
admitted into the Union upon terms
of perfect equality; with the other
btates. .
Resolved, finally, That in view of
the condition of popular institutions
in the' Old World, (and the danger
ous tendencies of sectional agitation
combined. with the attempt to en
force civil nd religions disabilities!
against the rights ' of acquiring and
enjoying citizenship iu'our own land)
a high and sacred duty is devolved
with increased; responsibility; upon
the Democratic party of the tinion
to bphoid. aad! maintain the rights
of .everv :SLifo; and "thnrphv thr
Union oL tho States;' and to susr
tain and advance among us consti
tutional liberty, by continuing-to
resist all monopolies and .exclusive
legislation for, the: benefit of the fow
at the expense of the many, and by
a vigilant and consLanVadherence to
those principles, and . compromises
of tha constitution'which are broad
and strong, enough to : embrace and
uphold tho Union a3 it ig, and the
Union jis it shall bo, in the full ex
pansion of- the energies and capacity
of thie great and progressiva people,
j Resolved,-Tha.t there-are questions-
connected with:,. the foreign
policy of this country which ar in
ferior to domestic question whatever!
The time has como ; for, the people
of tbo United , States.1 to declare
inemsetves in favor or free seas and
progressive , free , trade thronzhoati
the world, and by solejna manifegta,
ionsto place their'moral? influence
at the side of their successful exam
ple. '-i'U : . r i
2. Resolved,Thnt ourceOKraplicvl
and political position in reference -to
other Stales of this -continent no
less than the interest of our com
merce and the development of our
own growiiig power, requires that we
should hold ns sacred the principles
involved in the Monroe doctrine, that
Jheir bearing and import admit of
no misconstruction; ..they, should be
applied with'unbeDdicg rigidity.
2. Resolved, That the great high
way whicu nnture as well, as the
assent of tt.e'Statcjs most iminedi
atcly interested in it maintainance,
has marked out for a free communi
cation between the Atlantic and
Pacific oceans - constitutes one of the
most' important achievements real:
ized by the. spirit of modern time3
and the unconquerable j energy of
our people, That result should be
secured by V timely and efficient
exertion of the control we have
right to claim over it, andno power
on earth should, be suffered to im
pede or clog its progress by any in
terference with the relations, which it
may suit our policy to establish be
tween our Government, and the Gov
erninents'of the, States within whose
dominions it lies. ' .We'ean under no
circumstances surrender' cur pre
ponderance in the adjustment of all
questions arising out of it. ': ''
A. ' Resolved, That in view of so
commanding an interest the peoplo
of the United States cannot but
sympathise with the efforts which are
being make by the people of Central
America to regenerate that portion
cf the continent, which covers the
passage across the Ia.teroceanic Isth
mus. . ' " .
5 Resolved', That the Democratic
paity will expect of the next admin
istration that every proper effort be
maae io insure our ascendancy in tne
Gulf of Mexico, and to maintain a
permanent protection of tho great
outlets through '.which are emptied
into its waters, ; the products raised
out of the soil and 'the commodities
created by the industry cf the people
of our Western vidleys and ef tho
Union atiarse.

TheSuniRcr Affray. ;
Charles Sumner, Senator from Mas
sachusetts, was struck down for vulgar
and abusive language towards. South
Carolina, and towards a'Senator from
that State, used under cover of his
Senatorial privilege, and forthwith it
becomes an exciting question whether
his assailant ought, to' have beaten
him. This we shall not pretend to
determine until we are better conver
sant with all the circumstances. The
place for the'. attack was certainly iU
choseD, and calculated to elicit much
demagogical remark, from the North-
ern pomon.oi tne union. - liat a

We find the above in yesterday's

so much "intense American feeling"
io the country, and so many disinter-
fted patriots in that party,- it is

i? illmorg .baa taken 6uch decided
ground against the Kansas-Nebraska
act, Iwhilo i 'others attribute, it to
Donelson. As. to the ; objection, we
;cxpected Fillmore, with his life-long
J WUiU ua,c
opposition to sla
opposition to slavery, to. favor that
act, when there were leading men' in
the South urging that whole question
should be ''ignared. And as to

themselves in a less ridiculous light,

have taken him' they cught ton-
fess, at least, to be satisfied.
We know of. t;ut two States in the

vate affairs some weeks since to6erve.

' While we sympathise with our op
ponehts, wd thiok they would do well
to abandon -the idea' of , having a
ticket, v We know, gentlemen, yon
dco't like democracy; but the masses
of your party, in the . South, would
much prefer democratic rule to" that
of Black Republicanism, In view,
therefore, of the fact that the contest
is solely between the black republi
cans and the democrats, and that the
only possible effect which a Fillmore
ticket in the South can have, will
be to increase tho chances of the
former, why not, as pat riot", make a
sacrifice of your prejudices to a na
tional success?- ' .
..Tf yon must have an electoral

beg leave, therefore, to suggest the
