Declaration of Principles.
ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF
ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES.
- Mr. Cowan again arose and raid on be
half of the committee who were appointed
to prepare resolutions and an addiess : I
have to state after a very careful and elab
orate consideration of the same, lasting all
day and a part of the night, we have agreed
upon the same. I beg have to report the
following Declaration of Principles adopted
unanimously bv the Committee, which the
Secretary of this Convention will read, and
also an Address to the people of the coun
try, which will be read by the Hon. Mr.
Raymond, of New York. I Applause.
The Secretary then proceeded to read the
Declaration of Principles, each clause of
which was loudly applauded. The Inst one
which indorses the President was greeted
with prolonged cheering, in which the audi
ence and delegates) united :
DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES.
The National Union Convention, mw as
sembled in the city of Philadelphia, com
; posed ol delegates from every Bute and
. Territory of the Union admoniahed hv ih
solemn lessons which for the past five years
it baa pleased the Supreme Ruler of the
Universe to give the American people, pre
luuuu j graMim lortne return oi peace, de
airouk as are a large moioritv of their fel
low-counlrrmej, in al I. sincerity, to forget
nd to forgive the past, revering the Consti
tution as it comes to us from our ancestors
regarding the Union, in Its restoration, as
more sacred than ever, looking, with anxiety
into the future as of instant importance,
cereoy issues ana proclaims tne following
declaration of principles and purposes, on
which they have with perfect unanimity
agreed : - ,
1. We hail, with gratitude to Almighty
God, the end o f war, and the retoru of peace
to our afflicted -and beloved land.
2. The war just closed has maintained the
uinoruy oi mo iuunuuuuu, win aii toe
powers which it confers, and all the restric
tions which it imposes on the General Gov
ern ment unabridged, and unaltered, and it
haa preserved the Union with the equal
rights, dignity and authority of the States
perfect and unimpaired.
3. Representation in the Congretaof the
uniieci Dimes, mu in iiib cieciurai uuurge,
is a rigjit recognized in the Constitution as
abiding iu eery State, and as a duty impos
ed upon its people fundamental in its na
ture, and essential to the existence of our re
publican institutions and neither Congress
nor the-General Government has sny power
or authority to deny this rig'it to any State,
or to withhold its enjoyment, under the
Constitution, from the people thereof.
4. We call upon the people of the United
Slates to elect to Congress as members
thereof none but men who admit tbisun
damental right of representation, and who
will recommend to seats therein lovsl -representatives
from every State in allegiance
to the United States, subject only to the
Constitutional right of each House to judge
of the election returns and qualifications of
its own members,
5. The Constitution of the United States
and laws made in pursuance thereof, are the
supreme law of the land, any thing in the
Constitution or lawa of any Slate to the
contrary notwithstanding. All powers not
conferred by the Constitution upon the Gen
eral Government, nor prohibited by it to
States, are reserved to the several States rr
to the people thereo', snd among the rights
thus reserved to the States Is the right to
prescribe the qualifications for the elective
franchise therein, which right Congress can
nut interfere with. No State or combina
tion of States has the right to withdraw
from the Union, or to exclude through their
action in Congress, or otherwise, snd other
State or Slates from tire Union. The
Union of these States is perpetual and can
not be dissolved!
6. Such amendments to the Constitution
of the United States may be made by the
people thereof, as they may deem expedient,
in the mode pointed out by its provision,
and In proposing such amendments wheth
er by Congress or by convention, and in rat
ifyingthe same, all 'he States in the Union
have in equal and an indefeasible right to a
voice and vote thereon.
7. Slavery is abolished and forever pro
hibited, There is neither design nor pur
pose, on the part of the Southern States,
that it should ever be je-es'.ablislnd upon
the soil or within the jurisdiction of the Uni
ted Slates, and the enfranchised slaves, in
all the States of the Union, should receive
in common with all their inhabitants, equal
protection, in every right of person and
8. While we regard as' utterly invalid,
and never to be assumed or made of binding
force, any obligation incurred or underta
l en iu making war against the United
Slates, we hold the debt of the nation to be
sacred and inviolable, and we proclaim our
purpose, in discharging this duty as in per
forming all other national obligations, to
maintain unimpaired and unimpeached the
honor and faith of the RepuDlic.
9. it is the duty of the National Govern
ment to recognize the services of the Fed
eral soldiers and sailors in the contest just
closed by meeting promptly and fully all
their just and 'rightful claims fur srvices
they have rendered the nation-, and by ex
tending to those who have survived, aud to
the widows and orphans of those who fell,
the most generous and considerate care.
- 10. In Andrew Johnson, Piesidrnt of the
United States, who iu his great office has
proved steadfast in his devotion to the Con
stitution and the land and the interests of
country, unmoved by persecution aud unde
served reproach, having faith u.itallied in
the people and the principle of free govern
ment,' we recognize a Chief Magistrate who
is worthy of the nation, and equal to the
great crisis upon which his lot is catt, and
we tender to him in the discharge of his
high snd responsible duties our profound
respect, and tho assurance of our cordial
and sinceie support.
The reading of the resolutions was fre
quently in'errupted by burets of applause,
and at the close the audience rose en masse
to give vent to their satisfaction.
After the vote had been taken on the
adoption of the foregoing Declaration of
Principles, it was found that the reading of
the seventh one had been omitted by' acci
dent, and this fact was announced by Sena
tor Doolittle. It was then read and adopt
ed, with great applause and unanimity.
The Declaration of Principles was then
adopted as airhole, with enthusiastic cheers.
Alter the adoption, three cheeis were
cailed for and given in the most enthusiastic
manner for Senator Cowan, of Penn.
Senator Cowan acknowledged. the. com
pliment, but said that as he considered
himself the host of the Convention, one of
his distinguished guests would tddretr it by
virtue of authority unanimously derived
from the Committee on Resolutions and
Address, namely, the Hon. Henry J. Ray.
mond, of New York.
Mr. Raymond thereupon proceeded to read
the Address, which had been written by
himself, as had also been the Declaration of
Principles. He was so frequently interrupt
ed by applause that the Chairman. appealed
to the Convention to restrain from such
manifestations until the reading of the Ad
dress should be coucludod.
- Nevertheless at the close of tire one sen-
ten re declaring that no people subjected to
such treatment as that to which the South
was now subjected could long remain loyal,
cneer alter cneer resounded through the
Senator Johnson asked that the sentence
be repealed. The seuteuce was again read
ss follows. ,
No people has ever yet existed whose
loyalty and faith, under such treatment long
continued, would not alienate and impair,
and the ten millions of Americans who live
in the South would be unworthy citizens of
a free country-degenerate sons of a heroic
ancestry unfit ever to become the guar
dians of the rights and liberties bequeathed
to us by the fathers and founders of this Re
public if they could accept with uncom
plaining submissiveness the humiliation
thus sought to be imposed upon them."
This sentiment- was again cheered with
the greatest enthusiasm, at the elose of the
reading of the Address ex-Governor Perry,
of South Carolina, rose and moved its adop
. Tle motion was declared cartiel unani
mously, amid prolonged.cheering.
Mr. Samuel J. Tilderr, of New York,
then rose and proposed, on behalf of the
New Yoik delegation, three cheers for Hon.
Henry J. Raymond, who had prepared the
j.i j. '..j
nuuires just icau.
Mr. Patton, on behalf of the Pennfjlra
nia delegation, seconded tne call.
The cheers were then enthusiastically
Three address contain! about 8.000 words,
ana will make not far from four solid col
umns in the New York morninir papers. It
demands the universal acknowledgment of
the legitimate consequences of the war,
which are the perpetual maintenance of the
Union and the destruction of slavery.
It asserts next, that the Government ac
quired no new rights or powers by the war,
that It acted only on the defensive.
' Congress had passed a resolution, that
when the war closed, all the powers and dig
nity of the Statea should remain unimpair
ed snd intact. . . , .
- The power assumed by the Government in
the States aince the war closed was in viola
tion of the Constitution,
The Constitution declares that no State
shall, without iu own consent, be deprived
oi us equal representation In the Senate. .
The action of Congress denvine reore
sentation to the Southern States, appears
as great an effort to overthrow the Govern
ment as was that by armed rebellion. If
one Congress can exclude other S'ates on
another. There is no warrant for this in
the Constitution. Not only can not repre
sentatives be excluded from Congress, but
no State, without its own consent, can be
deprived of equal representation in the Sen
ate, even by an amendment to the Consti
tution, ... . . " ...
The only pretext for the action of Con
gress' is that the States lately in rebellion
have left their right-to representation, which
the supreme Government alone can restore.
But it is a principle that no right can be for
feited; nor can the rightior duty of a State
to be represented in Congress be impaired
by rebellion; only its 'enjoyment of that
privilege can be obttructed,
The address further inserts that the posi
tion of Congress iu thi matter is not war
rhnted by the Constitution, and Is not com
patible with the public safety.
It is also argued that three-fourths of the
loyal States can not change the fundamental
law affecting the others, and that w.e have
no right to pass judgment upon the motives
of any citizens of the United States when
his acts are loyal. No where are the laws
obeyed better than in the States lately in
rebellion. The disturbances that have oc
curred, were dueas much to injudicious po
liiical movements as any purpose hostile to
If the people of Ihe South ahow less dis
position tha n formerly to sequiesce in the
new order of affairs, il is because Congress
has withheld their rights Iromlhem. If
they felt otherwise, they would be degener
ated sons of their sires. No people ever,
exisjed whose loyalty would not have Is a
imp'aired by such treatment. The people of
the South would not be worthy to be trust;
ed in the exercise of tbeir rights if they
were willing to submit to such humiliation.
These men acted as they did, either from a
eonvirtion of right or they were tibdef
compulsion. For this they havt suffered
tenfold more than those who have remkinrtj
in allegiance. . . .
The, Addrass pledges their 'future obedt
enee to the ihe laws. The war has swept
sway slavery, the cause of sectional va
riance and- hostilities, and haa revealed
arid decipled our power. The' Address di
reefs a mention to (he (act that 'a-new
Congress is soon . fo be elected, and "adds
that if he present policy be' pursued civil
war may be renewed, and calls upon ere-
ry congressional uisinci 10 return onry
members who are favorable lot be policy
