On the first page will be found a por
tion of the address issued July 1st, by the ca
Democratic State Central Committee of C
P'ennsylvania. .The Con mnittee, composed di
of forty-three leading Democrats, had as- ti
sembled June 29th, at Harrisburg to con- w
sult upon and prepare an exposition of p
the views and sentinents of the Democ. fu
racy of the State, and the points then and to
there agreed upon were put into the form co
of an address by Robert Tyler, Esq., a
lawyer residing in Philadelphip, a native it
of Virginia, a sound Democrat And a tl
worthy son of Ex-Piesidtnt Tykr. There; v
is, consequently, good reason to assume fin
that the address truly represents Demo- b
cratic opinions as held by the party in the ti
Iron State. le
The address begins with a review of p
the .pemocrtic platform, showing that A
the Democracy of to-day is the Democracy a
of sixty years ago, and concludes with a w
fair and complimentary notice of the Ad- w
ministration of Mr. Buchanan. As will q
be seen from the portion quoted, the style p
is moderate but distinct, clear, compact ti
and methodical.
Whatever difference of opinion there r
may be between the Democrats of Penn- tl
sylvania and those of Louisiana will be v
found in tfie extract and a careful exam- it
ination of it will show that the difference v
is small.
They recognise the diversity of senti- t
rment upon the new Territorial question a
and denounce in fitting terms the d~1era- n
gogupism by whic ltis sought to con- u
fuse aid tislead th' ular mind.: r
They. boTlly proclan and advocatv the a
principle of popular sovereignity and a
clearly~draw thistinction between it ti
and the " spius; indefinite, vagrant ,
and accidental ' political idea of Squatter o
Sovereignty. c
While they hold that the" Federal Gov- n
ernment is attk.eme and sovereigni 'over
the Territories, -they distinguish between e
that legal and Constitutional supremacy y
and the illeg4.unlimited and despotic o
power claimed' for the Federal Govbrn
ment by the Black Republicans or Wilmot i
Provisoites' t'
P They assert the duty of the l'ederali
Government " to respect, with strict im- h
partiality, the rights and interests of all h
parties concerned; tkhese parti' being thkt
States and people of thk States res ettively."
They distinctly deny the power of Con- e
gress to authorize a Territorial legislature
to do.w0lit it has not itself the Constitu- t
tional power to do, and they illustrate the
'nopstrous conclusions to which a contra
ry doctripemust lead. a
They oppose pecial Congressional leg- E
islation for theb protection of slave or
other property in a Territory at the time 1
of organizing such Territory; but they em
pckaticall assert the power and the duy of
Congress to pul t down r:esistane to its acts, "or
to judiciaLc isionis in their proper logi
cal and leigal condquences," or to any- 1
thing else which the Federal Govermnent
may do "in tnd by virtue of the Constitu
tiotnal authority of the United States
over the'Tervitories.
They are not willing to legislate until
legislation is made necessary by the ille
gal, factions and turbulent acts of the
people of a Territory, because they arei
unwilling to assume in advadle that theiri
conduct will be otherwise than legal and
They deduce the right of the people of
any -State to hold and enjoy any species
of property in anysTerritory from the in
trinsic, indefeasible, eternal Democratic
pri~ qiple that the States are equal,
The Democrats of Pennsylvania "STAND
The whole difference, therefore, between
Sthe Democrats of Pennsylvania and those
w ho demand immediate Congressional
l gislation for the pliection of the rights
Sf'slave-owners in Territories, is reduced
to a mere question of policy or necessity.
SThey recognise these rights; they pro
r claim the power and duty of the Federal
Government to maintain them ; they only
f &ak' that furthe: intervention shall
a be deferreduentil the bad conduct of the
· people of a Territory rprlder it necessary.
, We have taken and 'hall continue to
, take pains to present to ourkeaders the
a doctrine of Democrats in diffeirentOSttes
upon this Territorial question, the only:
one on which different views are held.
C Having stated in a recent issue that
[ Northern Democracy is not Douglasism
or Squatter Sovereignty, we are gratified
to give this extract from the Pennasylva
SIuia platform as an evidence of that fact.

In accordance with long established
custom the Democratic Parish Central is
Committee of Rapides have appointed a ih
day for the meeting of the Parish Conven- tb
tion .and another for chosing Delegates gl
who shall compose it. From the first 1I
publication of the notice to the time fixed I
for Precinct meetings is ample ti~ne for it di
to come to the knowledge of every Demo- ju
crat in the Parish. H
It is important that the Precinct meet- or
ings shall be full. It is commonly seen pC
that a large'proportion of the Democratic tb
voters of a Precinct have such entire con- cc
fidence in the selection of Delegates made bt
by such of their neighbors a, are present m
that they think their own presence need- re
less. But these small meetings give a M
pretext for our opponents to bark at us.
Accustomed themselves to growl, scratch sc
and fight over official bones in their wig- gi
warns, they snarl at our party because nt
we settle all. these things in a decent, ac
quiet way. This attempt to bring the
plan of choosing candidates by ionven- be
tions into disrepute has been pursued of
with assiduity by all the haters of Democ- Si
racy for some months past. We hope el
that neither the approaching Parish Con- tc
vention nor the preliminary local meet- he
ings will give them anything new to al
whine about. st
The leading object of a Convention is of
to get the true sentiments of the party
with regard to candidn tes and this can
not be accomplished with entire certainty
unless general interest is taken in prima- 01
ry meetings. Our true candidates are b
always those who are most acceptable to T
a majority of the party. Hence due no- a
tice should be taken of the preferences ti
which prevail in primary meetings, in B
order that Delegates may represent their n
constituests fully, whether instructed or tl
not. 4 h
We have the best State ticket that was s'
ever nominated in Louisiana by any party. ii
We have a candidate for Congress and
one for the Board of Public, Works of tl
whom we are all proud. There is noth- fi
ing left for us to do but to make a Parish n
ticket of the best material our party can a
furnish. Harmony, liberality and zeal h
have given the Democrats of Rapides a
high 'reputation throughout the State ;
they can maintain this prestige by union
and by active interest in nominating and h
electing worthy men to our local and e
legislative offices. Let us notforget that
the standard of Louisiana Democracy has h
been placed'in the worthy hands of a De
mocrat of Rapides, but let us showv our
appreciation of the honor extended to us
by having the best of candidates and by
giving the whole ticket from top to bot- I
tom the largest Democratic vote ever
polled in this Parish.
W3 scarcely need to state that we
deem it improper-for thle )emocrat to ad
vo ate or oppose any candidate for the
local nomintions and that the expression
of any preferences we might indvidually
entertain ,would be neither fair-dealing c
towards other candidates nor worthy that
confidence of the whole party which is
reposed in us and which we are resolved
to deserve and keep. We are prepared
in advance to be satisfied with, and sup
port the nominees, nor do we fear in the
least that they will be unworthy 'of our
best exertions.
After our parish nominations'are made
it is to be presumed that the friends ofthe 1
various independent or opposition candi
dates will combine their forces and con
centrate their votes upon a singtl name
for each office. yeliminary arrangements
for such a combination may be assumed
as having been already made. This coa-.
lition will constitute a sort of bastard con
,vention which, while lacking in regularity
and all the qualities of a fair arrange
ment, will subserve thle prurient ambition
of the clique who rule the opposition. If
the plan suits them let themi proceed ; it
mattery little to the Democrats of Rapides
whether they meet thieir opponents scat

number and allow an equal loss only, on
