AFTERNOON t3SI0.N.
TuziDAV, August SO, lJ
The convention reassembled al 4 o'clock.
Mr. Guthrie stated that tha CommiLleo on
Resolutions had agreed, and cro rcsdy (o
Tho reio lotions vera read, as follows:
JUtdeeit, That In the future, as In the past.
we will adhere with unswerving fidelity to tho
u nion anu ine i-onsiiittlion, ana insist on main
talnlnfc onr national unity as the only aolld
foundation of our strength, teenrltr. and hao-
plncss aa a people, and es tho framework of
uovcrnmem enuauy conaueive to tho welfare
and prosperity or an tho states, both northern
and southern.
JUtolveJ, That this eouvenUon docs explicitly
declare, as tho sense of the American people,
that, aflcr fonr years of fallnre to restore tho
Union by the experiment of war, daring which,
under tho pretence of military necessity, or the
war !ower, higher than the Constitution, tho
Constitution Itself has been disregarded lnevutv
nart. end Public liberty and private rlzht aliko
trodden down, and tho material prosperity of
tuo country essentially impaired. i usiicofmu
manity, liberty, and tho public welfare demand
that Immediate cflorts be made for tho ccssallou
of hostllltlcs.wllh a view to an ultimata conven
tion of all tho States, or other Peaceable means
to that end. that, at the 'earliest rrartlcahla
mom ont, pcaco may bo restored on tho basis of
ine teutrai union oi i no D mice.
A'czofvetf. That tho direct Interference of tbo
military auihorlty of tho United Btatcs In tho
recent elections held In Kentucky, Maryland,
Missouri, and Delaware was a shameful viola
tlou of tho Constitution, and a repetition of
sucuacuin tao approaching election win do
nuu as revolutionary, ana to do resisiea wuo
all tho means and power under onr control.
Aitwif'tv, mat too aim ana object or tno
Democratic party Is to preserve tbo Federal
Union and the rUrhti of the States unimpaired!
and tbey hereby dcclaro that they consider Ad
mlnlstratlTC usurpation of extraordinary and
dangerous powers not grantod by tho Constitu
tion, tho subversion of thectvll by military
law In States not In Insurrection! the arbitrary
military arrest. Imprisonment, trial, and sen
tence of American citizens In States where
civil law exists tn foil forcct tho suppression
of the freedom of spocch and of tbo press j tho
aeniai or mo rignt ot asyium, tee open ana
avowed disregard of State rlzhls: tbe employ
mcul or unusual test oaths, and the Interference
wltb and denial of the right of tho people to
bear arms, as calculated to prevent a restora
tion of tbo Union, and tbe perpetuation of
uoYcrnmeui "aeriving us just rot era rrom the
consent of tho governed."
JtuoloeJ, That tho shameful disregard of the
Administration to its duty la respect to our
luiiow-cuizcas woo now are, anu long nave
been, prisoners of war, In a eutferlng condition,
deserves the severest reprobation and scoru
alike of the public and common humanity.
Jitioltcit. 'lhat tho svmoathv of tho Demo
cratic party Is heartily and earnestly extended

General Morgan, of Ohio, as a fellow-sol-dier
of McClellau, could not remain silent
wuku ino name ana ramo of lhat distinguished
General were so shamefully Impugned. Tho
charges cre untrue. The Maryland Legisla

They Intended that the 8uto should secede!
and an ordinance of secession was framed.
Maryland was to bo Invaded, overwhelmed by
the enemy, and taken out ef tha Union. What
did General McClellau do J He simply took
tho best Precaution In his power to thwart the
treasonable scheme j and, had ho not done so,
ho would have been eulltyof tho vilest treason.
The man who says General Mc CI el Ian Is a
tyrant docs not know him. A thorough sol
dlcr, with the gentleness of a woman, and the
courage oi non, no Dravcr, no more amiable,
and kind, and generous-hearted gentleman ex
ists on the face or the earth) and no greater
Ubet was ever uttered than when such a man
Is called traitor, f AppUuse.
Mr. Eatoo, of Connecticut passed a high
eulogy upon Thomas II. Bcyuionr, Imt added
his name was used hero wlthoat his wish and
without the request or tho Conncctlcnt delcga

Mr. Hsrrls, 'of Maryland, explained that
what bo said was that he could not go beforo
tbe people of Maryland and ask them or tbe
members of tho Legislature to voto for Mc
Ckljaii. Ifo did not say ho would not vote for
him, tut felt himself bound to voto for tbe
enndidsto of tbo Convention. Tha name of
Got, rowcll was then withdrawn.
Mr. WlckUllb withdrew tho name of Frank

Mr. Jones, of Maryland, reirrctuid that tha
gentleman who took a stand in defence of Mc
Id lun assumed tbo ground that he waa Jastl-
ow uccausu oi me coiiusion oeiweea tne mem
bers of tho Legislature and any rebel General
or army.
Had he put it upon the ground tbat he actod
upon credible evidence, bo might have re
mained silent, but ho could not permit tbo
wr,,'iB'iiure to rem am unacr sucu a isisenoou.
Gen. More an explained tbat he Intended to
say tbat McCIellan acted upon testimony re
gardod as credible.
Mr. Jones said, so far from being credible, lt
has ever been pronounced by tho victims of
tbat action an utter falsehood.
Tho Legislature had no power to pass an or
dinacce of secession. These arrests demanded
immediate trial, even by a drum-bead court
martial; but Instoad of giving that which the
law guarantees to tho poorest citizen, tbey
wro told tbey could have their liberty by giv
ing their parole. Some, worn out bv the fa
tigues ot Imprisonment, did finally give their
paroi e; ouiomers preferred to yield their uvea
rather than submit lo the humiliating test tbat
was required oi them. They sutTered long, ana
yet to this day tbey know not their accusers.
Still, ho belletcd McCIellan was too much of a
gentleman and Chrlstlau lo act as he did, ex
cept upon what ho deemed credible-evidence.
Mr. Holmsn, of New Jersey, moved that tho

Mr. Long, of Ohio, look tbe stand lu opposi
tion to McClellau, He said Lincoln had been
g jllty of Interfering with tbe freedom of speech,
the freedom of elections, and of arbitrary ar
rests, j to continuca I in your resolutions you
ha vo arraigned him before tho people of tho
country for these tyrannies and usurpations;
and jet you propose lo nominate a man who
has gone even farther than Lincoln tn perpe
trating similar tyrannical measures upon tha
sacred prhllegos and rights of tbo people.
McClellau Is guilty of tbo arrest of tho Legis
lature of a sovereign State.
He has suspended tho writ ol Juxbeai corpiu,
ami helped to enforce an odious emancipation
proclamation of Lincoln) tho willing Instru
ment of a corrupt and tvraunlcal Administra
tion, aiding, whllo possessing military power,
all its cflorts to strlnAmcrlcanfrcemenof their
dcaron liberties, will you so fsr stultify your
selves as to mako him tho standard-bearer of
the Democracy I With all his heart he hoped
not. Ho had never done otherwise, and as be
tween Lincoln aud Fremont, and any man
calliug himself even half Democrat, be would
liavo a choice, and would be found voting with
bl Ir lends j but he begged the convention not
to nominate McCIellan.
AlmoH any other tnau whoelaltns to bo a
Dimocrat would satisfy him. and would sat
isfy tho Northwest. Weak as is your platform
iu mauv rcspetts. we will stand up aud do all
lu our power to maintain It) but, In God's
name, do not add to tts weakness by placing
such a mau la nomination.
Mr. Carrlgan. of rcnnsyUauu, followed Iu
answer to Harris, and quoted from McClellan's
letters to llurnslde, to Halleck, and to Duel,
wnen mesa gentlemen were unacr niui, to snow
ho invariably admonished them that tbe onh
ol'Jcit of the war was to preserve Iho Integrity
of tho Union aod tho majesty of tbo lairs, and
that ho Invariably cautioned them to strictly
guard against any Infringement upon iho rights
