tion adopts and affirms the Cincinnati
platform, and declares that, according to

What those constitutional restrictions are
is referred to the purpose of decision of
the Supreme Court, created for the rmr.
Jiose of deciding questions or cases arising
under the Constitution and laws of the
United States. Judge Douelas. in hU

in his letter of acceptance, considered in
connection with the Baltimore resolutions
to take (he broaJ and comprehensive
ground that, whenever Ibis judicial
question shall be anally determined by
theFcderal Government it must enforce and
carry out the decision in good faith, if be
were than of Prsident of tte United States,
he would use all the necessary power of

I am, therefore, bound to oonolude that,
whatever differences of opinion may
exist between Northern and Southern
Democrats on the abstract question, prac

. Such is the ground the only ground
of which even a show of contesting any
Slave State is or can be made by tha sup
porters of Mr. Douglas. Let them take
boldly the ground which they have done
at the North, and the vote, for Douglas in
the South will fall below that fo Lincoln.
They are saved from iheir own reproach
of "Sectionalism'' only by holding two
radically differently creeds one lor the

would be forced to disavow their North

Think for a moment ot the possibilities
that lie enfolded in the nature of every,

word to develop into splendid results. In
view of this great truth, iheo, it behovea
us all to take heed how ve withhold a kind
word or refrain from a generous act. We
all know tbe nature of a kind word ; we
hve all fell the need of it at some period
of our lives, and alt may feel the need of
it again. Lotus, then, not be ohary of
our kindness to others lest God be chary
