The Committee on Resolutions reported that the
Georgia Resolations bad been adopted as expressive
of the seatmuents of the Louisiana Democracy. The
committee also recommended that a State Central
Committee be appointed for the ensuing campaign.
The resolutions were unanimously adopted.
That the State of Louisiana, in the judg
moent of this convention, will and ought to re
sist even (as a last resort) to a disruption of
every tie which binds her to the Union, any
action of Congress upon the subjects of slave
ry in the district of Columbia, or in places sub
ject to the jurisdiction of Congress incomppati
bie with the safety, domestic tranquility, the
rights and honor of the slave-holding states,
or any act suppressing the slave trade between
the slave-holding states; or any refusal to ad
mit as a state any territory hereafter applying
because of the existence of slavery therein; or
any act prohibiting the introduction of slaves
into territories of Utah and New Mexico; or
nay act repealing or materially modifying the
laws in force for the recovery of fugitive slaves.
Rlesolred, That we approve and emalorsco the
action of our last Congress in the Nebraska
Kanmsuft act, and the principlcs therein estab
lishel; and in conformity with these principhs
the people of Kansas have the right, when the
unumber of that population justifies it, to form
a Repulblican State Constitution, with or with
out slavery as they may determine, and be ad
mitted into the Union upon an equal footing
with the other States, and that her rejection
by C'ongress, on account of slavey, would be
a just cause for the disruption of all the ties
that bind the( State of Louisiana to the Union.
Resolved, That in accordance with the above
resolutions, whilst we are willing to act in par
ty association with all sound and reliable men
in every section of the Union, we are not wil
liug to, pdllhte wit. any party that shall not
recognize, approve ntid carry out the principles
and provisions of the Nebraska-Kansas act,
and that the Democratic party of Louisiana
will cut off all connection with every muan and
party at the North or elsewhere, that does not
come up fully and fairly to this line of action.
Resolved, That the national Demooracy of
the north, who have patriotically fought for the
Kansas and Nebraska acts and the maintenance
of the Fugitive Slave Law, against the com
bined forces of Know Nothingism and aboli.
tionism, who seek their repeal, and who stand
pledged to support the admission of Kansas
into the Union as a slave State, should site ask
it, merit the heartfelt sympathies, thanks and
encouragement of southern men in this patriot
Resolved, That the national Denrocratic par
ty of the north alone, have been found those pa
triotic men who have thus stood by the rights
of the south, and judging the future by the past,
that party il the only organization at the north,
that now exists or can be formed with which
the south can consistently cooperate.
Resolved, That we sympathize, with the
friends of the slavery cause in Kansas, in their
manly efforts to maintain their rights and the
rights and interests of the Southern people and
that we rejoice at the recent victories over the
paid adventurers and Jesuitical hordes of north
,.a abolitionism. That the deep interests felt
and taken by the people of Missouri in the set
tlement of Kansas and the decision of the Slave
ry qu~stioa in it, is both natural and proper,
and that It s their right and duty to extend
to their Southern brethern in tht' Territory
every legitimate and honorable sympathy and
Resolved, That we are uncompromisingly op
posed to the political organization conmmonly
called the Know-Notjiag Order, or American
party, having no sympathy with their secresy,
their oaths,, their unacnstitutional designs, their
religious intolerance, their political proscrip
tion, and their abolition association at the
Resolved, That we hail with delight 'the late
signal triumph in Virginia of the Democratic
Party and the patriotic Whigs, who co-opera

ed himself to do his duty in the campaign as a dem
ocrat and an American. He would meet the enemy
wherever he showed his front; would seek him out
in his hiding place and bring him to light,
Maj. Herron, i)r. lnrd and Mr. marks each ad
dressed the Convention briefly and pointedly.
The Democratic papers throughout the State were
requested to publieh the proceedings ol the Conven
The Convention then adjourned sine die.
G. WV. lMc.DA.-This gentleman, in the
Convent on of the 18th, covered himself with
honor, by the magnanimous manner in which
he declined to have his name put in nomination
for Treasurer. lHe said he was a citizen of
East Feliciana. The nominee for Governor,
Hion. R. C. Wickliffe, was hit neighbor, living
within twenty-ffve miles of him; and the nom
inee for Auditor, Col. 8. F. Marks was also
his neighbor, at the distance of thirty miles.
1Io wished to see geographical justice done.
Other sections had claims; it was not right that
three candidates for important office should be
found in the area of thirty miles out.of all the
territory of Louisiana. He therefore declined
not because he was without honorable ambition;
but where the framing of a strong and satisfac
tory ticket and the success of his party were
concerled; they were to him paramount consid
orations; and he would lay every personal
feeling and asperation of his own a sacrifice on
the altar of Democratic harmony and success.
He concluded with a '"hurrah for the Demo
cratio ticket," which reechoed through the Hall,
and seemed to inspire every body with a conge
nial enthusiasm. We hope he will not be call
ed on in future for a continuance of his self ab
negation. The people should see that such
disinterestedness do not always keep in the
back-ground of promotion one so deserving of

hundred back, bounded on the east, north and

There are also two large halls, one above, and
one below stairs. Also two balconies, both on

story, fronting the street.
This house was built for a family residence,
and every attention was paid to the construe
tion of every portion of it, with a view to beau
ty of structure, comfort and health. No resi

in these particulars.
The kitchen is large and commodious, con
taining four extra rooms.
