BY MEYERS & MENGEL. 3vooflamrs Column. you ALL HAVE HEARD OF IIOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS, AND HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC. Prepared by Dr. C. M. Jaekson, Philadelphia. Their introduction into this country from Ger many occurred in 1825. THEY CURED YOUR FATHERS AND MOTHERS, And will cure you and your children. They are entirely different from-w -wthemany preparations now in the country cal I—l led Bitters or Tonics. They are no tavern-l—l-preparation, or any thing like one ; but good, honest, reliable medi cines. They are The greatest known remedies for Liver Complaint, DYSPEPSIA, Nervous Debility, JAUNDICE, Diseases of the Kidneys, ERUPTIONS OF THE SKIN, and all Diseases arising from a Disordered Liver, stomach, or IMPURITY OF THE BLOOD. Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles. Fullnes of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stomach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Full ness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eruc tations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stomach, Swimming of the Head, Hurried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the v Heart, Choking or Suffocating Serisa i I tions when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of V / Vision, Dots or Webs before the sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Defi ciency of Perspiration, Vellowness ofthe Skin and Eyes. Pain in the Side, Back, Chest, Limbs, etc.. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Constant Imagi nings of Evil and Great Depression of Spirits. AH these indicate diseases of the Liver or Di gestive Organs, combined with impure blood. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS is entirely vegetable and contains no.liquor. It is a compound of Fluid Extracts. The Roots, Herbs, and Burks froui which these extracts are made, are gathered in Germany. All the medi cinal virtueus nre ex tracted from thfcui by a scientific Chemist. I I These extracts are then forwarded to this country to be used ex pressly fur the manufacture oi these Bitters. There is no alcoholic substance of any kind used in compounding the Bitters, hence it is the only Bitters that can he used in esses where alcoholic stimulants are not advisable. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC is a combination of all the ingredients of the Bit ters, with PURE Santa Cruz Rum. Orange, etc. It is used for the same diseases as the Bitters, in case where some pure alcoholic stimulus is required. You will bear in mind that these remedies areen tirely different from any others advertised for the cure of the diseases named, these being scientific ■preparations of medicinal extracts, while tho oth ers are mere decoctions of rum in some form. The TONIC is decidedly one of the most pleasant and agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Its taste is exquisite. It is a pleasure to take it, while its life-giving, exhilarating, and medicinal quali ties have caused it to be known as the greatest of all tonics. DEBILITY. There is no medicine equal to Hoofland's Ger man Bitters or Tonic in cases of Debility. They impart a tone and vigor to the whole system, strengthen JL the appetite, cause an enjoyment of the food, enable the stomach to di fest it, purify the blood, give a good, sound, ealthy complexion, eradicate the yellow tinge from the eye, impart a bloom to the cheeks, and change the patient from a short-breathed, emaci ated, weak, and nervous invalid, to a full-faced, stbut, and vigorous person. Weak and Delicate Children are made strong by using the Bitters or Tonic. In fact, they are Family Medicines. They can be administered with perfect safety to a child three months old, the most delicate female, or a man of ninety. These remedies are the best Blood Purifiers ever known and will cure all diseases resulting from bad blood. Keep yjur blood pure; keep your Liver in order; -r keep your digestive organs in a sound, I healthy condition, by the use of these rerne I_-J dies, and no diseases will ever assail you. The best men in the country recommend them. If years of honest reputation go for anything, you must try these preparations. FROM HON. GEO. W. WOODWARD, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylva nia. PHILADELPHIA, March 16. 1867. I find that "Hoofland's German Bitters"-is not an intoxicating beverage, but is a good tonic, use ful in disorders of the digestive organs, and of great benefit in cases of debility anil want of ner vous action in the system. Yours Truly, GEO. W. WOODWARD. FROM HON JAMES TAOMPSON. Judge of the Supreme Conrt of Pennsylvania. PHILADELPHIA, April 28, 1866. I consider "Hoofland's German Bitters" a valua ble medicine in case . of attaeks of Indiges tion or Dyspepsia. I \ can certify this from my experience of it. Yours, with respect, JAMES THOMPSON. FROM REV. JOSEPH 11. KENNARD, D D., Pastor of the Tenth Baptist Church, Philadelphia. DR. JACKSON—DEAR SIR:—I have been fre quently requested to connect my name with rec ommendations of different kinds of medicines, but regarding the piactice as out of my appropriate sphere, I have in all cases declined ; but with a clear proof in various instances, and particularly in my own family, of the usefulness of Dr. Hoof laiul's German Bitters, I depart for once from my usual course, to express my full conviction that for generul debility of the system, and es pecially for Liver Com -my plaint, it is a safe and valuable preparation. In some cases it may fail; bnt usual ll ly, I doubt not, it will be very beneficial to those who suffer from the above causes. Yours, very respectfully, J H. KENNARD, Eigth, below Coates Street.

(•real HAMS Ntoetiiisr* Inside and Onlside of Tammany Hall. yinti'iiidcciit Reception of tlieir Candi dates by the People. Speeches of Acceptance by Governor Seymour and General Blair. Last Friday evening a mass meeting, or rather, two mass meetings were held at Tammany Ilall to present for mally to the Hon. Horatio Seymour, of New York State, and Gen. Frank P. Blair, of Missouri, the nominations of the National Democratic Conven tion to the high offices of President and Vice President of the United States, and to ratify said nominations by the voice of the people. The meeting was one of the grandest of the grand scenes witnessed upon this continent since its discovery by Christopher Columbus; the reception given to the candidates of the Democracy—or let us say rather the people—of these United States, was an ovation of which they and their de scendants may well be proud and boast till the crack of doom. Never before in the history of our politics was a rati fication meeting held which was so truly, so unmistakably a ratification meeting. The country, through all its broad extent, had that morning, in countless sheets, flung off from light ning presses in numberless telegrams, sent thrilling and quivering, as if with joy, over the glad wires, announced its ratification of the noble choice of its trusted delegates in solemn council as sembled. And now the people, not only of the Empire City and the Em pire State, but of every State and Ter ritory and city in the land, there rep resented by some of their worthy citi zens, met in the place where glori ous deed had been done, the happy choice made, to give palpable and en enthusiastic expression to that ratifica tion. Tammany Hall wore an aspect pre cisely such as it wore when the Con vention was deliberating within its walls, not one of its tasteful decora l tions having been removed. Outside, at the large window, to the left of the door, a large platform was erected, and was hung with the national ensign, while across the street were hung nu merous lanterns to give at once light and lightness to the spectacle. The meeting was announced for 8 o'clock, but long before that hour the great Hall was filled to its utmost capacity, and a scene was presented on the floor and in the galleries like that which lias so often been described during the past few days. On the outside tho people who could not get in gathered in the street in front of the stand, and before the hour of meeting a dense throng extended from one side of the street to the other, and from the Third avenue far up to the Fourth avenue. At about eight o'clock fireworks, sup plied by J. G. & J. Edge, and managed by A. G. Greene, began to illuminate the heavens and the vast assemblage below them. If the object of these was to draw a crowd together it was a ridiculously unnecessary expedient; if the object was to give the throng some thing to employ their eyes and keep them from impatience while standing waiting for the speeches, it was a wise one. Such an assemblage was never before witnessed here at a public meet ing. The very lamp-posts and the posts of the great arch were occupied by men and boys, and throughout the evening, from G to 12, street-ears were in the midst of the jamble unable to move one way or the other. Some time after eight o'clock Gov ernor Seymour and General Blair ap peared in one of the reception rooms of the Tammany building, which they had reached quietly by the back en trance. Alter a few minutes' consulta tion the committee of one from each State and Territory, appointed by the Convention to make the formal tender of the nominations, proceeded to the platform of the hall, escorting the two candidates. There the two latter re mained unperceived in the rCcess at the back of the platform, while the committee took seats upon it, together with Messrs. August Belmont, Augus tus Shell, Edw. Croswin, Senator Mur phy, and other distinguished gentle men. "Mr. August Belmont came forward and said : GENTLEMEN:—! have to propose to you as President of this meeting Hon. Samuel J. Tilden, of New York, (cheers.) Mr Tilden, on coming forward, said: Speech of Hon. S. J. Tilden. FELLOW-CITIZENS: I congratulate you on this spontaneous assemblage of the Democracy of our State. (Ap plause.) I did not myself know of this meeting until a few hours ago. There does not seem to be any organization for the purpose of carrying it on and, therefore, I have been invited to accept the duty of presiding on this occasion. As I came through the hall I saw a vast heap of people, many times more than are here assembled. (Applause.) I feel how strangely this meeting in here and the meeting outside indicate the spontaneous uprising of tho masses of the people, to increase the liberties of the people. (Cheers.) For my part I have not entertained any gloomy ap prehensions on the result of the con test on which we are about entering. (Applause.) I believe in God and in the people. I believe that we are des tined to preserve and restore this framework of American constitutional government. [Applause.] That we are to refound that government on the BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1868. liberties of the people. [Applause.] And that we are to restore in every part of this continent over which we exercise dominion, local self-govern ment to every integral portion of the American people. [Cheers.] You know, my fellow-citizens of New York, that I am not very sanguine in the anticipations which I form of po litical results; but I volunteer to pre dict, and I call upon our adversaries to record that prediction, that if the Democratic party gather, as I believe they will gather, to this contest, they* \?ill bear our standard to a certain and assured victory. [Applause.] On the whole, I believe that we have made the strongest and the best nomination which we could make, after as much deliberation as we have had [Cheers.] I am willing, myself, to notify all Con servatives to join with is in the move ment to rescue our country. I am willing to accept the vager of battle that is given us. [Cheers.] lam wil ling, under the standards whom we have chosen, to go forward and to place upon the chance of the day the desti nies of the Democratic party, as also the destinies of our country and of mankind. [Cheers.] Aye, fellow-citi zens, I say of mankind, because if this beautiful and splendid specimen of con stitutional government t nit our fathers regarded as an experiment—that we afterwards made perfect—if it shall fail now, there is no hope foi mankind of any effective participation of the pub lic masses in their own government. [Applause.] It will not fail—it.cannot fail ; and this contest in vhich we are now engaging will give us, I verily believe, a political revolution as great and as momentous in itsresultsms that political revolution that occurred here, in this city of New York, which brought Thomas JeffeKon into the Presidential chair in 1801, and founded the Democratic party that prosperous ly governed the country for well-nigh sixty years. [Great applause.] It is our mission to restore its principles in the administration of the Government, to restore a liberal policy in the con ducting of affairs, and to give to our people everywhere the assurance of complete peace after war is over; of pacification through every part of our beloved land; of local self-govern ment, of individual rightsand individu al safety, of the re-establishment of the great guarantees of personal freedom, constitutional rights everywhere upon this cotinent. [Prolonged cheering.] Fellow-citizens, I now present to you Gen. Morgan, of Ohio, the Chairman of the Committee appointed by the National Convention to tender to Ho ratio Seymour the nomination for President of the United States. And I present to you at the same time Hora-, tio Seymour. Mr. Tilden would have added a few words to round up his sentence, but the announcement of the name of Seymour and his appearance upon the front platform at the same time, was the sig : rial for the whole body of people in the hall and galleries to rise to their feet and wave their hats, and their canes, and their parasols, while they cheered and cheered in one wild enthusiastic, indescribable uproar, exliibitingascene only equalled by that which took place in the same room when the nomina tion of Governor Seymour became known on Thursday. The sound was exciting, inspiring, almost terrific; now it rolled forth like a peal of thun der over the mountains and valleys of an Alpine solitude • now it partially died away into a reverberating echo, and anon it broke forth again as if a J voleanifhad burst forth, or an earth quake was about to rock the earth to itsj centre. Thisextraordinaryscenecontin- j ued for several minutes, then someone called for three cheers, and cheer after cheer, and then three more and then another and another, and another was given, till the number reached more than a dozen. All this time Mr. Sey mour stood his dignified and noble self, yet seeming half abashed and more ] than half affected with emotion at the warmth of his reception, and almost as if he would have to retire till the people could control themselves. Or der was, however, at last restored, and General Morgan then addressed Govern or Seymour in the following words: Speech of General Morgan. Governor Seymour—On behalf of the committee appointed for that purpose, I have the pleasure, sir, of presenting to you a communication announcing your unanimous nomination as the candidate for the office of the President of the United States, by the National Democratic Convention ; and 011 behalf, sir, of-4.be Conservative and Democrat ic people of the States whom we have the honor to represent, we here pledge their united and cordial efforts in se curing relief to the country from the thraldom which now possesses it, and in placing you, sir, as the Chief Magis trate of the United States, in the Exec utive chair. Tremendous cheering followe 1 this address. When this had subsided, Governor Seymour replied as follows: Speech of Gov. Seymour. Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Committee I thank you for the courteous terms in which you have communicated to me the action of the Democratic Na tional Convention. [Cheers.] I have no words adequate to express my grati tude for the good-will and kindness which that body has shown to me. Its nomination was unsought, and unex pected. It was my ambition to take an active part, from which I am now excluded, in the great struggle going on for the restoration of good govern ment, of peace and prosperity to our country. (Great cheering.] But I have been caught up by the whelming tide that is bearing us on to a great po litical change, and I find myself una ble to resist its pressure. [Loud cheers.] You have also given tome a copy of the resolutions put forth by the Conve ntion, showing its position upon all the great questions which now agitate the country. As the presiding officer of that Convention, I am familiar with their scope and import, and as one of its members I am a party to their terms; they are in accord with my views, and I stand upon them in the contest upon which we are now enter ing ; and I shall strive to carry*them out in future wherever I may be placed, in public or private life. [Cheers.] I congratulate you, and all conservative men, who seek to restore order, peace, prosperity, and good government to our land, upon the evidences every where shown, that we are to triumph at the next election. [Prolonged cheer ing.J Those who are politically oppos ed to us ilat tered themselves there would be discord in our councils; they mis took the uncertainties of our views as to the best methods of carrying out our purposes for difference of opinion with regard to those purposes. They mistook an intense .anxiety to do no act which should not be wise and judicious for a spirit of discord, but during the lengthened proceedings and earnest discussions of the Convention there has prevailed an entire harmony of intercourse, a patient forbearance, and a selfsacrifieing spirit, which are the sure tokens of a coming victory. Accept for yourselves, gentlemen, my wishes for your future welfare and happiness. [Cheers.] In a few days I will answer the communication you have just handed me by letter, as is the customary form. [Tremendous and long-continued cheering.] Mr. Tilden—l have now the honor to present to this meeting, Major-Gen eral Francis P. Blair, Jr. The appearance of General Blair was the signal for renewed enthusiasm, lit tle if at all inferior to that which had greeted Governor Seymour, and which was continued at such length that the General became somewhat fa tigued while waiting for a chance to speak. At length General Morgan took advantage of temporary quiet to speak as follows: Gen. Morgan Tenders (he Nomination to Gen. lilair. GENERAL BLAIR: The committee appointed by the Convention have made it my pleasing duty, sir, to an nounce your unanimous nomination as the Democratic candidate for Vice President of the United States'—[ap plause]—and in tendering to you sir, this nomination, I feel sure that it will not only be hailed with acclamation by your follow citizens througout the United States, but by thousands of your gallant comrades on many a well fought field—[applause]—and who will once again rally to the stars and stripes and the defence of free institutions. [Applause]. Major General Francis P. Blair, Jr., Accepts the Nomination for Vice Pres ident. General Blair, after the tumultuous applause which greeted him had subsi ded said: Mr Chairman—l accept the platform of resolutions passed by the late Democratic Convention, and I ac cept their nomination—(great cheer ing)—with feelings of profound grati tude, and, sir, I thank you for the ve ry kind manner in which you have al ready conveyed to me the decision of the Democratic Convention. I accept the nomination with the conviction that your nomination for-the Presiden cy is one which will carry us to certain victory—(applause) and because I be lieve that the nomination is the most proper nomination that could be made by the Democratic party. (Applause.) The contest which we wage is for the restoration of constitutional govern ment—(cheers)—and it is proper that we should make this contest under the lead of one who has given his life to the maintenance of constitutional gov ernment. (Applause.) We are to make the contest for the restoration of those great principles of government which belong to our race. [Great Ap plause.) And my fellow citizerts, it is most proper that we should select for our leader a man not from military life, but one who devoted himself to civil pursuits, who has given himself to tiie study and the understanding of the Constitution and its maintenance with all the force of reason and judgment. [Applause.] My fellow citizens, I have said that the contest before us was one of the restoration of our govern ment, it is also one for the restoration of our race. [Appplause, long, contin ued.) It is to prevent the people of our race from being exiled from their homes—[cheers,]—exiled from the gov ernment which they formed and created for themselvesand their children, and to prevent them from being driven out of the country or troden under foot by an inferior and semi-barbarous race. [Applause.] In this country we shall have the sympathy of every man who is worthy to belong to the white race. [Applause.] What civilized people on earth would refuse to associate with themselves in all the rights and hon ors and dignity of their country such men as Lee and Johnson ? What civ ilized country on earth would fail to do honor to those who fighting for an er roneous cause, yet distinguished them- VOL 62.—WHOLE No. 5,452. selves by gallantry in that service? [Applause.] In that contest for which they sought to be disfranchised and to be exiled from their h#mes—in that contest they have proved themselves worthy to be our peers. [Applause.] My fellow citizens, it is not my pur pose to make any long address—[cries of "go on"] —but simply to express my gratitude for the great and distin guished honor has been confer ed upon me. A voice—"You are worthy of it." General Blair—And from my heart to reiterate the words of thank*? that fell from my lips when I arose. [Renewed cheering, during which General Rlar retired.] The President then introdjuced Gen eral Custer, who made an eleoquent speech. lie was followed by General Clay Smith, of Kentucky, and Gener al Morgan of Ohio, both of whom spoke for the soldier of the West. The Outside Meeting. About the same time that the pro ceedings within the hall were com menced the meeting outside was call ed to order by Senator Thomas 11. Creamer, who took the chair to pre side. After a few introductory words he introduced Colonel Carter, of North Carolina, who made an excellent ad dress, reciting the grievances of the Sotuh appealing to the North to bo just if not generous, and expressing his confi dence in the integrity and fairness of the Democratic party. 8. 8. Case fol lowed, and while he was speaking, Mr. Seymour, who had finished his address in the hall above, made his appear ance. Mr. Creamer, the Chairman, then in troduced Gov. Seymour, amid an up roar and tumult of cheers that drown ed all other voices throughout Four teenth street, from Third to Fourth av enues. Governor Seymour and General Blair Outside. Governor Seymour stepping upon highest board at the front of the plat form spoke as follows: Fellow citizens—l am unable with my broken voice and exhausted frame to do more than return you my sin cere thanks for the compliment which you now pay me. May God bless you, and may he bless our country, and may he give us in the pending contest that triumph which will tend to secure con stitutional law, good order, peace and prosperity to our land. I can say no more, but to bid you good night, and once more thank you for your kindness to me. [lmmense cheering.] Shortly afterwards, General Blair made his appearance, and the shining of the lesser lights was interrupted for for a little while. Mr. Creamer intro duced him to the audience amid dea fening cheers, and he spoke as follows: General Blair said: Gentlemen—l return you my heartfelt thanks for the kindness with which you have re ceived me here this evening. I value, my fellow-citizens, this unbounded en thusiasm, not because I consider it any personal compliment to myself, but be cause I see in it what no man can mis take—that the people of this country have aroused themselves, and intend to take back their government in their own hands [applause], that they in tend to redeem themselves [applause] from the rule (a voice "misrule") of this dynasty that hasdisgraced and de graded the country. [Great cheering and cries of "good, good." | American citizens which have been taken away from them by the military power of the South [applause], and the rights of American citizens in foreign lands as well. (Enthusiastic cheering.) My fellow-citizens, the Radicals arc now in power (groans and hisses.) 1 wish 1 could groan as loud as ail of you.— [Laughter.] They havesoughf, fellow citizens, to make a new Ireland of A merica [Grohns]. I know fellow citi zens, that it is impossible for me to speak so as to be heard in this immense audience. [Cries of "Go on."] I know that standing in such a dense mass as you are now standing in, is not conducive to comfort, and that it will be better for me to dessist. [Cries of goon.] I therefore again, fellow citi zens, return you my heartfelt thanks for your kindness, and beseech you to make your assault upon the Radicals this fall with the same serried ranks as I now see here assembled before me. I take my seat with the conviction that victory is sure. [Applause, long and loud, during which General Blair re tired.] * The Hon. John J. Rogers, General William 8. Miller, of Pennsylvania; General Thomas L. Price, of Missouri, Governor Green Clay Smith, and oth er gentlemen spoke to the audience till a late hour, when the immense meet broke up, after indulging their feelings in a few more rousing cheers for the candidates. THE MATIOXAI. DKHOCKATH' AMD CONSERVATIVE SO I. D IF. IIS* AMD SAILORS' Pl.A'ri'Olt'tl. First. Immediate restoration of all the States to their rights in the Union under the Constitution, and of civil government to the American people. Second. Amnesty for all past politi cal offenders, and the regulation of the elective franchise in the States by their citizens. Third. Payment of the public debt of tlie United States as rapid as practi cable ; all moneys drawn from the peo ple by taxation, except so much as is requisite for the necessities of the gov ernment, economically administered, being honestly applied to such pay ment, and where the obligations of the government do not expressly state upon their face, or the law under which they were issued does not pro vide that they shall be paid in coin, they ought, in right and in justice, be paid in the lawful money of the Uni ted States. (Thunders of applause.) Fourth. Equal taxation of every species of property according to its real value, includingthegovernuientbonds, and other public securities. (Renew ed cheering, and cries of "read it a gain.") Fifth. One currency for the govern : ineut and ihe people, the laborer and the officeholder, the pensioner and the ! soldier, the producer and the bondhold er. (Great cheering aud cries of "Read iit again.") The fifth resolution was again read, and again cheered. Sixth. Economy in the administra tion of the government; the reduction of the standing army and navy; the abolition of the Freedman's Bureau I [great cheering], and all political in- I strumentalities designed to secure ; negro supremacy; simplification of I the system, and discontinuance of inquisitorial assessing and collecting internal revenue, so that the burden of taxation may be equalised and less ened, the credit of the Government and the currency made good ; the re peal of all enactments for enrolling the State militia into national forces in time of peace, and a tariff for revenue upon foreign imports, and such equal taxation under the internal revenue laws as will afford incidental protec tion to domestic manufactures, and as will, without impairing the revenue, impose the least burden upon and best promote and encourage tne great in* dustrial interests of the copntfy. Seventh. Reform of abuses in the administration, the expulsion of cor rupt men from office, the restoration of rightful authority to, and the inde pendence of, the executive and judicial departments of the government; the subordination of the military to the civil power, to the end that the usur pations of Congress and the despotism of the sword may cease. Eighth. Equal rights and protection for naturalized and native-born citi zens at home and abroad; the asser tion of American nationality which shall command the respect of foreign powers and furnish an example ami encouragement to people struggling for national integrity, constitutional liberty and individual rights ; and the maintenance of the rights of naturaliz ed citizens against the absolute doc trine of immutable allegiance, and the claims of foreign powers to punish them for alleged crimes committed be yond their jurisdiction. (Applause.) In demanding these measures and reforms we arraign the Radical par ty for its disregard of right, and the unparalleled oppression and tyranny which have marked its cereer. After the most solemn and unani* mous pledge of both houses of Com gress to prosecute the war exclusively for the maintanance of the government and the preservation of the Union un der the Constitution, it has repeatedly violated that most sacred pledge under which alone was rallied that noble volunteer army which carried our flag to victory. Instead of restoring the Union, it has, so far asisin its power, dissolved it, and subjected ten States, in time of profound peace, to military despotism and negro supremacy. It has nullified there the right of trial by jury ; it has abolished the habeas corpus— that most sacred writ of liberty; it has over thrown the freedom of speech and the press; it has substituted arbitrary seizures, and arrests, and military trials, and secret star chamber inquis itions for the constitutional tribunals; it has disregarded in time of peace the right of the people to be free' from searches and seizures; it has entered the post and telegraph offices, and even the private rooms of individuals, and seized their private papers and letters without any specific charge or notice of affidavit, as required by the organic law; it has converted the American Capitol into a bastile; it has establish ed a system of spies and official espion age to which no constitutional mon archy of Europe would now dare to resort; it has abolished the right of appeal on important constitutional questions to the supreme judicial tri bunals, and threatens to curtail or destroy its original jurisdiction, which is irrevocably vested by the Constitu tion, while the learned Chief Justice has been sujected to tho most atrocious calumnies, merely because he would not prostitute his high office to the support of false and partisan charg es preferred against the President.— Its corruption and extravagance have exceeded anything known in history, and by its frauds and monopolies "it has nearly doubled the burden of the debt created by the war. It has strip ped the President of his constitutional power of appointment, even of his own cabinet. Under its repeated assaults the pillars of the government are rock ing on their backs, and should it suc ceed in November next and inaugurate its President, we will meet as a sub jected and conquered people amid the ruins of liberty and the scattered frag ments of the Constitution ; and we do declare and resolve that ever since the people of the United States threw off all subjections to the British crown the privilege and trust of suffrage have belonged to the seve.al States, and have been granted, regulated and con trolled exclusively by the political power of each State respectively, and that any attempt by Congress, on any pretext whatever, to deprive any State of this right, or interfere with its exer cise, is a flagrant usurpav. lUli of power which can find no warrant in the Con stitution, and if sanctioned by the peo ple, will subvert our form of govern ment, and can only end inasingle cen tralized and consolidated government, in which the separate existence of the States will bo entirely absorbed, and an unqualified despotism be establish ed in place of a federal Union of co equal States; and that we regard the reconstruction acts (so-called) of Con gress, as such, are usurpations, and un constitutional, revolutionary and void. That our soldiers and sailors, who carried the flag of our country to vic tory against a most gallant and deter mined foe, must ever be gratefully re membered, and all the guarantees giv en in their favor must be faithfully carried into execution. That the public lands should be dis tributed as widely as possible among the people, and should be disposed of either under the pre-emption or home stead laws, and sold in reasonable quan tities, and to none but actual occupants, at tho minimum price by the government. When grants of tho public lands may be allowed necessary fortheencouragementof important pub lic improvements, tho proceeds of tho sale of such lands, and not tho lands themselves, should be so applied. That the President of the United States, Andrew Johnson [applause] in exercising the power of his high office in resisting the aggressions of Con gress upon the constitutional rights of tho States and the people, is entitled to the gratitude of tho whole American people, and in behalf of the Democrat ic party we tender him our thanks for liis patriotic efforts in that regard.— [Great applause.] Upon this platform the Democratic party appeal to every patriot, includ ing ail the Conservative element, and all who desire to support the Constitu tion and restore the Union, forgetting all past differences of opinion, to unite with us in the present great struggle for tho liberties of the people, and that to all such, to whatever party they may have heretofore belonged, we extend the right hand of fellowship, and hail all such co-operations with us as friends and brethren, [Applause.]
