[The reading of this resolution was interrupted for some
time by tremendous and prolonged applause, J
2. 1 hat this was tlie basis of tbe compromise* of l?5U con
firmed by both the democratic and whig parliaa U national
convention!, ratified by the people in the election of 185J
and rightly applied to the organization of Territories iu
1 ,
3. That hy the uniform application of this democratic
principle to the organization of Territories, and to the ad
mission ot now States, with or without domestic slavery, aa
they may olect, the equal rights of all the States will be pre
serred intact, the original compacts of ths constitution
maintained inviolate, and tbe perpetuity and expansion of
this (jnion insured to its utmost capacity of siubraeuitt, io
peace and harmony, evvry future American State tbat may
be constituted or annexed, with a republican form of ?ov
ernuicnt. "
lii.oivtd, That we recognise the right of the people of all
the Territories, including Kansas and Nebraska, actio?
through the legally and fairly-expressed will of a majority
of actual residents ; and, whenever the number of their in
habitants justifies it, to form a oonstitution. with or without
domestic slavery, and be admitted into the Union upon t.-rms
of perfect equality with the other States.
ICtMi'fvtU, finally, That, in view o the oondltion of pop
ular institutions in the Old World, and tbe dangerous ton
dencies ot sectional agitation, combined with the attempt to
enforce civil and religious disabilities against the rights ot
acquiring and enjoying citizenship iu our own land, a hi'fh
aud sacred duty is devolved, w.fli increased i sponaibiiitv,
upon the democratic party of this country, a-- the party o!
the (Jnion, to uphold and maintain tho rights of overv St"at?,
and thereby the Union of the States, and to sustain and ad
vance among us constitutional liberty, by continuing to rr
?ust all monopolies aud exclusive legislation for tho benetlt
ol tlie ftiw at the expense of the many, and liy a vigilant
and constant adherence to those principles and compromises
of the constitution, which are brorul enough and strong
enough to eihbiace at.tl uphold the Onion *s it was, the
Union as it is, and the Union as it shall be i:i the full expan
sion of the energies and capacities ol this grtat aud proere?
sive people.
1. Ht.ohed, That there are questions oonnectrd with the
loreipn policy of this country which arc inferior to no do
mestic questions whatever. Tho time has come for th.i peo
pie ol ibe United States to declare themselves in favor of
free seas and progressive free trade throughout (ho world
and by solemn manifestations to place their jyoial influence
at the side of their successful example.
2 Htnvlveil, That our geographical and political position
with reference to other States of tbia continent, no less than
the interest ot our commerce, and tbe development or our
growing power, requirea that we should bold as sacred the
principles involved in the Monroe doctrine ; their bearing
and import admit of no misconstruction : they should b?
applied with unbending rigidity.
5. lUioived. That the (treat highway which Nature, as
weil as the assent of the States most immediately interested
in iu maintenance, has mark.d out for a free communication
between the Atlantic and the Pacific 00" an a, constitutes
one of the most important achievement* realized bv the apirit
of modern times and the uuoonquerable energy of our peo
ple. That result should be secured by a timely and efficient
exertion of the oontrol which we bave tbe right to claim
over it; and no pot. er on earth should be in fiered to im
pede er olog its progress by any interference with the rela
tions it may suit our policy to establish between aur gov
ernment and the governments of the States within whose do
minions it lies. We can, under no circumstances, surren
der our preponderance in the adjustment of all questions aris
ing out of it.
' Kenolvtd, That, in view of so commanding aa inter
est, the people of the United States cannot but synspa
thize with the efforts which are being made by the pecple
of Central America to regenerate that portion of the conti
nent which covers the passage aorosa the interoceanic isth
6. Jiemlved, That the democratic party will expect of
the next administration tbat every proper effort will ha
made to insure our asccndencv in the Quit of Mexico ; and to
maintain a permanent protection to the great outlets through
which are emptied into Its waters the products raised oat of
the soil, and the commodities oreated by the industry of tha
people of our western valleys, and of tbe Union at large.
11. F? HALLETT, Chairman.
Itfolced, That tbe democratic party recognises the great
Importance, in a political and commercial point of view,
of a sale and sp6edy communication, by military and postal
roads, through our own territory, between tbe Atlantic aad
I'acifie coasts of this Union, and tbat it is the duty of the
federal government to exercise promptly all its constitutional
power for the attainment of that object.
Mr. Hallett. 1 am instructed by the committee to lay
these resolutions before the convention.
W. P. I'anker, of Pennsylvania. I move that this report
and resolutions be unanimously adoptod, without the croM
iug of a I or the dotting of an i. [Great applause.]
Mr. Conway, of Virginia. 1 move that there be a divis
ion of tbe question, and that tbe convention first act upon
the resolutions relating to the domestic policy of the na
tion. There were delegates here, especially from the 8tato
which he in part represented, who were not prepared to
adopt all these resolutions; and it would be neceaaary to
divide tbe body on the reeolutionf.
n. P. Butler, of Massachusetts. Aa this report ia the
unanimous result of the labors of a committee compoaad of
delegates from all the 8Isles, and 1 believe imbodies prin
i ciplcs which have obtained the aequieecence of all the
democrats in every part of our Union, I shall nfofs the
previous question.
f Vo, no ! Great sensation.]
J M. R. If. Gnrnett of Virginia. I riae to a point of or
der. A division of the question lias been asked by my col
league that took precedence.
j [No I Order, order I]
Mr. Oarnett, in a warm and excited manner, exclaimed :
Before such resolutions are forced upon ua?before they
j are forced upon the democracy of the Did Dominion, which
has steadily opposed the doctrines embraced In one of
j them?thnt Old Dominion which has never faltered In de
fence of the democratic faith ? before you force such raeo
| lotions upon us, I ask for a division of the question.
Several members here arose and catted to order, and in
sisted that there could be no debate pending a call for the
previons question.
Mr. tiibburd, of New Hampshire, said that the call far a
division of the main question, under the rnles of the House
of Representatives, was in order after the previous question
was demanded and sustained, and that any one member
was entitled to bave tlie main question uivided.
Tbe President said that the previous question having
been demanded, the question first in order was Khali the
call for the previous question be siieminod? Then, ii if
was sustained, the question would fos, Shall the main
question be now put? Aud if that wtij decided Itt the
affirmative, fhe gentleman from Virginia v.as er.titled to
have tho main question divided.
Mr. Phelps, of Miasourl. Mr. President. I desire to sag
' gee! that the right of a delegation from a State, which
1 casta thirty-five votes upon this floor, to be admitted, hat
not been settled, arid I would ask whether It is not preaie
I tnre to adopt the resolutions just read tiefore Nsw York Is
; heard? I think it is, aud 1 appeal to the gentleman AA>tu
Ohio to withdraw the call for the previous question, tbat
j 1 mnv move to postpone tbe further consideration of this
! platform until the N> w Vork contested case is decided.
Mr. Butler refused to withdraw his call for the previous
I question.
Mr, Avery, of North Carolina, moved that the nonven
1 'ion should consider the resolutions reported and acted
upon by the committee, disregarding tbe extra resolution
relative to a public toad.
Tbe Chatr, however, would not entertain tbe resolution;
| but the previous question, being seconded, was put to the
! body, and Ihe body Sustained it by a large majority. Tbe
1 order was that the convention would now vote apoa tbe
resolutions relating to the domestic policy ot (be country.
The call was for a vote by .States.
The States were severally called, and each delegation
unanimously votfd aye in favor of the resolutions The
Virginia and Mississippi delegations alone retired to con
snlt, but returned with their unanimous approval of tbe
| resolutions.
When the North Carolina vote was announced, Mr. Ave
| ry, who was the organ of the delegation, remarked : u North
Carolina gives ten votes for the resolutions, and will give
ten thonsand in November."
When Alabama was called, her delegates cried out:
|" Msbama votes nine votes tor the resolution. and in No
j vember, as tisnal, she will roll tip her fifteen thousand dem
ocratic majority .
When Kentucky was called, the Hon. 0. A. Wiokllffe an
nounwd that Kentucky gave her twelve votes for tho ??so
lutions, and all she could promise wonld be a majority in
November ne*t, f Ixmd applause )
The President tlien announced that the several delegs
I tions had voted unanimously, to wit: two hundred and
| sixty-one votes in flavor of the resolutions reported by the
I committee relating to the domestic, policy of the country.
Mr. YVickliffe. Before we arc called on to vote on the
remaining portions of the resolutions, I think we should
