TO THE MEDICAL PHOPttSSlON. CI l'.N l'LEMEN.?Tlie valuable medicinal J" properties of Balsam Copaiba have long been recognized by ttie faculty, but the ijro.it dis advantage arising from its nauseous taste Iihs hithertu prevented its administration in many diseases for which it is particularly tulupt<-d. The usual ' modus optrantif of prescribing -it, either ui the form of an. Emulsion or Gelatinous Cap sules, has not been found satisfactory, bciug liable to some objection, either from the difficulty expe riciu ed by some individuals in the deglutition of the Capsule or the small quantity of Copaiba gen erally found in the Emulsion. Joyce's tasteless solution of Copaiba is the ui<|i-1 unique preparation yet introduced to the medical profession, as it contains 50 per cent, of the pure-t Para Copaiba, without taste or smell; and at same time mixes clearly and freely with water, and is pronounced by the most eminent physicians and analytical chemists in the eld am! new worlds to contain all the medicinal proper ties of Balsam Copaiba without its disagreahle characteristics. It is an efficient preparation for all diseases Of the mucous membranes, and particularly Gono rheupn, Leucorrhuen, Gleet, painful hemorrhoida. affection*, and in chronic irritation of the bladder Sold in Washington wholesale, by J.

JAMES WILLAMS. March 20, 1856. JAMES H. WILIAMS. PLATFORM OF THhi DKMO CRATIO PARTY AS ADOl'TED BY THE CINCINNATI CON VENTION. Revolved, That tbo American Democracy place their trust iu the intelligence, the patri otism and the discriminating justice of tbo American people. Resolved, That we regard this as a distinc tive feature of our creed which we are proud to maintain before the world as a great element in a form of government springing from and upheld by a populur will; and we contrast it with the creed and practice of Federalism, un der whatever name or form, which seeks to palsy the vote of the constituent, and which Conceives no imposture too monstrous for the popular credulity. Resolved, Therefore, That^ntertainiug these views, the Democratic party of the Union, through their delegates assembled in a general convention of the States, convening together in a spirit of concord, of devotion to the doc trines and faith of a free representative gov ernment, and appealing to their fellow citizens for the rectitude of their intentions, renew and re-assert before the American people the decla rations of principles avowed by them, when, on former occasions, in general convention, they presented their candidates for the popular suffrages. 1. That the federal government is one of liberul powers, derived solely from the Consti tution, and the grants of power made therein ought to be strictly construed by all the de partments and agents of the government; and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exer cise doubtful constitutional powers. 2. That the Constitution does not confer upon the general government the power to commence and carry on a general system of in ternal improvements. 3. That the Constitution does not confer au thority upon the federal government, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of the several States, contracted for local internal improve ments, or other State purposes; nor would such assumption be just or expedient. 4. That justice aud sound policy forbid the federal government to foster one branch of in dustry to the detriment of any other, or to cherish the interests of one portion to the in jury o^ another portion of our common coun try ; that every citizen and evefy section of the country has a right to demaud and insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and a complete and ample protection of persons and property from domestic violence and for eign uggression. i 5. 1 bat it is the duty of every branch of the Government to enforce and practice the tnoht rigid economy in conducting our public aft'sirs, aud thut no more reveuue ought to be raised than is required to defray the necessary ex pen-' pensesof the Government, and for gradual but certain extinction of the public debt. G. That Cougress has no power to charter a National Bank; that we believe such an insti tution one of deadly hostility to the best interest of our country, dangerous to our republican in stitutions aud the liberties of the pet. % and calculated to place the business of the cv.tntry within the control of a concentrated tuoney power, and above the la^s and will of the peo ple ; and that the results of Democratic legis lation in this and all other financial measures upon which issues have beeu made between the two political parties of the country, have demonstrated to practical men of all parties ? their souudness, safety and utility in all busi ness pursuits. 7. That the separation of tho pioneys of the Government from all banking institutions is in dispensable for the safety of the funds of the Government and the rights of the people. 8. That the liberal principles embodied by Jetferson in the Declaration of Independence, and sanctioned in the Constitution, which makes ours the land of liberty, and the asylum of the oppressed of every nation, have ever been car dinal principles in the Democratic faith, and every attempt to abridge the privilege of be coming citizeus and owners of soil among us ought to be resisted with the same spirit which swept the alien aud sedition laws from our statute book. 9. That Congress lias no power under the Constitution to interfere with or control the do mestic institutions of the several States, aud that all such States are the sole and proper judge* of everything appertaining to their own affairs not prohibited by the Constitution; lhat all efforts of the abolitionists or others made to induce Congress to interfere with queatiuns of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, arc calculated to lead to the moat alarming and dangerous consequences, and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced bv any friend of our political institutions. Ruolved, That the foregoing proposition covers and was intended to embrace the whole subject of slavery agitation in Congress, and therefore the Democratic party of the Union, standing on this national platform, will abide by and adhere to a faithful execution of the acts known a the Compromise measures settled bv Congress, the act for reclaiming fugitives from service or labor included ; which aot be ing designed to carry out an express provision of the Constitution, cannot, with fidelity there to, be repealed, or so changed as to destroy or impair its efficiency. Resolved, That the Democratic party will re sist all attempts at renewiug in Congress, or out of it, the agitation of the slavery question, under whatever shape or color the attempt may be made. Resolved, That the proceeds of the public lands ought to be sacredly applied to the na tional objects specified in the Constitution, and that we are opp^ed to any law for the distri bution of such proceeds among the States, as alike inexpedient in policy nnd repugnant to the Constitution. Resolved, That we are decidedly opposed to taking from the President the ?qualified veto power, by which ho is enabled, under restric tions and responsibilities amply sufficient to guard the public interests, lo suspend the pas sage of a bill whose merits cannot seenre the approval of two-thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives until the judgment of the people can be obtained thereon, and which has saved the American people from the corrupt and tyrannical dominion of the Hank of the United States, and from a corrupting system of general internal improvements. Resolred, That the Democratic party will faithfully abide by and uphold the principles laid down in the Kentucky and Virginia reso lutions of 1792 nnd 1798, and in the report of Mr. Madison to the Virginia Legislature in 1799?that it adopt* those principles as con stituting one of the main foundations of its political cree<l, and is resolved to carry them out on their obvious meaning and import. I hat in view of the condition ef the popular institution in the Old World, a high and sacred | duty is involved with increased responsibility upou tlie Democracy of this country, as the party of the people, to uphold Mid maintain the rights of every State, and thereby the union of the States?and to sustain and advance among them constitutional liberty, by continu ing to resist all monopolies and exclusive legis lation for the benefit ofthe few, at the expense of the many, and by a vigilant and constant adherence to those principles and compromises of the Constitution?which are broad enough to embrace and uphold the Union as it is, and the Union as it should be-v-in the full expan sion of the energies and capacity of this great and progressive people. The first part of the report embraces the general principles of the last Convention, and re-atlirms the Baltimore platform of 1852. It then proceeds as follows : A no whkukas, since the foregoing declara tion was numerously adopted by our predeces sors in National Conventions, an adverse political and religions test, has been secretly organized by a party claiming to be exclusive ly Americans, and it re proper that the Ameri can Democracy should clearly define its rela lions thereto : Therefore _ Resolved, That the foundation of this Union of States having been laid in its prosperity, expansion, and pre-eminent example in free government, built upon entire freedom in mat ters of religions concern, and no respect of persons in regard to rank or place of birtb,^ no party can justly be deemed national, constitu tional, or in accordance with American princi ples which bases its exclusive organization upon religious opinions and accidental birth place. ? . That wo reiterate with renewed energy ot purpose the well-considered declarations of former Conventions upon the sectional issue of domestic slavery, and concerning the reserved rights of the Slates, : nd that we may more dis tinctly meet the issue on which a sectional j party, subsisting exclusively on slavery agita tion, now relies to test the fidelity of the pei> ple, North and South, to the Constitution and the Union? Resolved, That, claiming fellowship with and ?le-iiriiig the co-operation of ail who regard the preservation of the Union, under the Consti tution, as the paramount issue, and repudia ting all sectional parties and platforms concern ing domestic slavery, which seek to embroil the States and incite to treason and armed re sistance to law in the 1 crritories j and whose avowed purposes, it consummated, must end in civil war and disunion, the American De mocracy recognise and adopt the principles contained in the organic laws establishing the Territories ot Kansas and Nebraska as embodying the only sound and safe solu tion of the slavery question upon which the groat national idea of the people of this whole country can repose in its determined conservatism of the Union, non-interfereuoe by Congress with slavery in States and Terri tory, or in the District of Columbia^ that this ?s-as the basis of the compromises of I860, confirmed by both the Democratic and Whig parties in National Conven tions, ratified by the peoplo in the election of 185*2, and rightly applied to the organization of Territories in 1854 ; that the uniform appli cation of this Democratic principle to the or ganization of Territories and the admission of new States, with or without domestic slavery, as they may elect, the equal rights of all the States will be preserved intact, the original compacts of the Constitution maintained invio late, aud the perpetuation and expansion of this Union ensured to its utmost capacity of embracing, in peace and harmony, every future American Slate that may be constituted or annexed with a republican form of Govern ment. Resolved, That we recognize the right of the peo ! pie of all the Territories, including Kansas and ! Nebraska, acting through the legally and fairly expressed will of a majority of actual residenlsj aud whenever the number of the'u- inhabitants justifies it, to form a constitution, with or with out domestic slavery, and be admitted into tin I Union upon terms of perfect equality with the other States. Rej 'lrcd. That, in view of the condition of the popqlar institutions of the Old World, and the dangerous tendencies of sectional agitatioi^ combined with the attempt to enforce civil and religious disabilities against the rights of ac quiring citizenship in our own laud, a high and sacred duty has devolved an increased re sponsibility upon the Democratic party of this ? country, as the party of the Union, to uphold | and maintain the rights of every Slate, and thereby to sustain and advance among us con- | stitutional liberty, by continuing to resist nil j monopolies and exclusive legislation for thfc j benefit of the few at the expense of the many, and bv vigilant adherence to those principles and the compromises of the Constitution which are broad and strong enough to embrace and , uphold the Union as it w*s, the Union as it is, ( and the Union as it shall be in the full expan sion of the energies and capacity of this great j progressive |?e?ple. Jfr.solveil, I hat the questions connected with the foreign policy of the country are inferior to no domestic question whatever; that the time has come when the people of the United States should declare themselves in favor of free neat, of progressive free trade throughout the world, ana by solemn manifestations place their moral influence by the side of their successful example. Resolved, That pur geographical and political position with reference to other States of this continent, no less than the interest of our com merce and the development of our growing power, requires that we hold sacred the prio ciplef involved in the Monroe doctrine; that their bearing and import should admit of no misconstruction, and should be applied with unbending rigidity. Jicntlval, That a great highway of Nature, as well hs the assent of those States most im mediately interested in its maintenance, has been marked out for a free communication be tween the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and constitutes One of the uiost important achieve ments realized by the spirit of modern times and the unconquerable energy of our people; that this result should be secured by the timely and efficient control which we have a ritfht to claim over it; that no power on earth should be suffered to impede or clog its progress; nor should we allow any interference with the re lations which it may suit our policy to entabl^h with the Government <>t States within whose f dominion it lies; that we can, under no cir cumstances, surrender our preponderance in the adjustment of all questions arising out of it. ' Jleeolvetl, That, in view of so commanding an interest, the people of the United States cannot but sympathize with the efforts which are being made by the people of Central Ame rica to regenerate that portion of the continent which covers the passage across the oceanic isthmus. Resolved, That the Democratic party will expect ot the next Administration that every proper effort will be made to iusure our ascen dency in the Gulf of Mexico; to maintain a i VV A?Slllx\GiO^ BEVERLEY TUCKER, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR.

Thai these constitute, until the fundamental law is changed by methods which itself provides, tile highest lata of our; obedience as citizens; ai,d that we utterly discard that particular and ex aggerated sympathy, the attempt t<? .rirr, which into practice is at the peril of om est interests as a nation, and threaten, ?!,, fliction of evils of tenfold magnitude jy ihu ? which it proposes to heal. "Resolved, That the equaiii , ?f i|ie Sl?t?>-, i the vital element of the Constitution it-elf. nn.< that all interference wiih the rights ot ihe States, by those who s?ek fo disregard the sacred guarantees of the past, and by ail others, should be rebuked with tue same spirit that would denounce and repudiate all attempts to erect odious distinction between those who are eutitled to share the blessings and benefits of our free institutions. " Jtesolced, That the effort to direct the power of the government by anti slavery agitations, under the vanons names and phases of Free S oil ism, A n ti-X e braak aixtn, Fusionism. aud Ke publicanism. and by interfering with the rights of conscience in establishing a religious test a> a qualification for office, by thesecreroarli-hound society of the Know-nothings; is oppose! l>oth to the letter and the spirit of the Constit nm,,. and to the earnest teachings and practice ol'iis earliest and most honored administrators. Resolved, 1 hat we are now as ever unaltera 1 "ly opposed to the doctrines aud design* ?f nil organizations which contemplate 'he?verthro*. of 'h? ,ci1vil ?nd religions rights of the eit.acii which, like the equality of the i.s a mU te. and inalienable right, never to be iiitwfered with by factious parties and reckless legislation with out a subversion of the primarr objects nf ,,ni political system, and a repudiation of ib? uh? antees of the past, and the hopes of the hour. Resolved, 1 hat in the repeal of the act known as the Missouri Compromise act, und the i sage of the act organizing the Territories ot Kansas and Nebraska, free from uncon-ina tional restrictions, the last Con-res* perform*! a work of patriotic sacrifice, in meeting the demands of sectioual excitement by unshaken adherence to the fundamental law." #"Ileaolced, That this legislation cannot be deemed unnecessary, bnt that if w?., expedient to meet the questions of which if diM,osed, ai?l which could never admit of a more easy ?ettie raent than at present. That we recognize it, it the application to the Territori.* o( tl . United States of the rule of 'equal and e*fcc, justice to all men, of all sections of the Con U-deracy, which was designed by the franivr of our Government, and which was defined ?? one of Us essential principles by the immortal Jefferson. "Xewotrtd, That the Democracy of Prunsrl vania, following the coniisf] of of the wisest statesmen of the North and South ready on more than one occasion iu the i.aat to extend the Missouri Compromise line to tf.e Pacific so as to make it the basis of a final set Moment of the question,of slavery in the Terri ,0rle?S;u fen lhl!* l/roiKwition was rejected, in 1848, on the ground that it involved an un due concession to the South, by the very mc? who now clamor for a restoration of the Mi.. ?oun line, there seemed to be but one w?c alternative le t, and that was to retcr the whole question of slavery in the Territories to the people thereof, lo be regulated as the, mar deem proper; and we, therefore, cheerfully <?* tend our hearty support lo the policy of ih?.
