JOYCE'S TASTELESS SOLUTION Of Copsib*I 114 Chamber* Stieet, N. I. TO Tilt: MEDICAL PROFESSION. ENTLEHEN.?The valuable medicinal X properties of Balsam Copuiba Iruvc long been recognized by the faculty, but the great dis advantage arising from its nauseous taste has hitheriM prevented its administraiion in many diseases lor which it is particularly adapted. The usual 1 modus operandi"* of prescribing it, either m the form of an Emulsion or Gelatinous Cap sules, has not been lound satisfactory, being liable to some objection, either from the ditflculty expe rienced by some individuals in the deglutition ol the Capsule or the small quantity of Copaiba gen erally lound in the Emulsion. Joyce's tasteless solution ol Copaiba is the most unique preparation yet introduced to the medical profession, as it contains 50 per cent, ol the purest Para Copaiba, without taste or smell, and at same time mixes clearly and freely with water, and is p<onounced by the most eminent physicians and analytical chemists in the old and new worlds to contain all the medicinal pro|>er ties of BaUam Copaiba without us disagreable characteristics. It is an efficient preparation for all diseases ol the mucous membranes, and particularly Gono rheuea, Leucorrhcea, Gleet, paimul hemorrhoidal aliections, and in chronic irritation of the bladder.

March 26, 1S56. JAMES H. WILIAMS. PLATFORM OF THK DEMO CHATIC PARTY AS ADOPTED BY THK CINCINNATI CON VENTION. Resolved., That the American Democracy place their trust in the intelligence, the patri I otisin anil the discriminating justice of the j American people. j Resolved, That we regard this as a distinc tive feature of our creed which we are proud i to maintain before the world as a great element j in a form of government springing from and upheld by a popular 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, a^d which conceives no imposture too monstrous for the popular credulity. Resolved, Therefore, That entertaining 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 jwople the decla rations of principles a vowed by them, when, J on former occasions, in general convention, they presented their candidates for the popular suffrages. 1. That the federal government is one of liberal 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 irovernment, 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 and 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 of another portion of our common coun try ; that every citizen and every Bection of the country lias a right to demand and insist upon an equality <>| rights and privileges, and a complete and ample protection of persons and property from domestic violence and for eign aggression. 5. That it is the duty of every branch of the Government to enforce and practice the-most rigid economy in conducting our public affairs, and that no more revenue ought to be raised than is required to defray the necessary expen pensesof the Government, and for gradual but certain extinction of the public debt. 6. That Congress 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 and the liberties of the p- r>le, and calculated to place the business of the ouniry within the control of a concentrated money power, and above the laws 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 been made between the two political parties of the country, have demonstrated to practical men of all parties their soundness, safety and utility in all busi ness pursuits. 7. That the separation of the moneys of the Government from all banking institutions is in dispensable for the safety of the funds of the Government aud the rights of the people. 8. That the liberal principles embodied by Jefferson 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 citizens and owners of soil among us ought to be resisted with the same spirit which swept the alien and sedition laws from onr statute book. 9. That Congress has no power under the Constitution to interfere with or control the do mestic institutions of the several States, and that all such States are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs not prohibited by the Constitution; that all efforts of the abolitionists or others made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most 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 by any friend of our political institutions. Resolved, That the foregoing proposition covers and was intended to embrace the whole ?abject 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 by Congress, the act for reclaiming fugitives from service or labor included; which act 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. ' ? RcrJced, That the Democratic party will re sist all attempts at renewing 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 tne na tional objects specified in the Constitution, and that we are opposed to any law for the distri bution of such proceeds among the States, as alike inexpedient in policy and repugnant to the Constitution. Resolved, That we are decidedly opposed to taking from the President the quaiibed veto power, by which he is enabled, under restric tions and responsibilities amply sufficient to guard the public interests, to suspend the pas sage of a bill who?e merit* cannot secure the approval of two-thirds of the Senate and House uf 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 tho Bank of the i United States, and from a corrupting system of general internal improvement*. Resolved, That the Democratic party will faithfully abide by and uphold the principles laid down in the Kentucky and Virginia reso lutions of 1792 and 1798, and in the report of Mr. Madison to the Virginia Legislature in 1799?that it adopts those principles as oou stituting one of the main foundation* of its political creed, and is resolved to carry them out on their obvious meaning and import. That in view of the condition of the popular institution in the Old World, a high and sacred duty is involved with increased responsibility ' upon the Democracy of this country, as the | party of the people, to uphold and maintain ! the rights of every State, and thereby the union of the States?and to sustain und advance , among them constitutional liberty, by continu I in# to resist all monopolies and exclusive legis ; latiou for the benefitof the few, at the expense of the mauy, and by a vigilant and constant | adherence to those principles and compromises t of the Constitution?which are broad enough to embrace and uphold the Union as it is, and the Union as it should be?in the full expan sion of the energies and capacity of this great j and progressive people. The first part of the report embraces the general principles of the last Convention, and reaffirms the Baltimore platform of 1852. It then proceeds as follows '? And whereas, since the foregoing declara tion was numerously adopted by our predeces sors in National Conventions, an adverse political and religious test has been secretly organized by a party claimiug to be exclusive ly Americans, and it is proper that the Ameri can Democracy should clearly define its rela tions thereto: Therefore? Resolved, That (he foundation of this Union of States haviug been laid in its prosperity, expansion, and pre-eminent example in free government, built upon entire freedom in mat ters of religious concern, and no respect of persons in regard to rank or place of birth, no party can justly be deemed national, constitu tional, or in accordance with American princi ples which bases its exclusive organization upon religious opinions aud accidental birth place. That we reiterate with renewed energy of purpose the well-considered declarations of former Conventions upon the sectional issue of domestic slavery, and concerning the reserved rights of theSiates, und that we may more dis tinctly meet the issue on which a sectional party, subsisting exclusively on slavery agita tion, now relies to test the fidelity of the peo ple, North and South, to the Constitution and the Union? Resolved, That, claiming fellowship with and desiring the co-operation of all who regard the preservation of the Union, under the Consti tution. as the paramount issue, aud 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 Territories ; and whose avowed purposes, if consummated, must end in civil war and disunion, the American De mocracy recognise aud adopt the principles contained in the organic laws establishing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska as embodying the only sound and safe solu tion of the slavery question upon which the great national idea of the people of this whole country can repose in its determined conservatism of the Union, non-interference by Congress with slavery iu States and Terri tory, or in the District of Columbia; thSt this was the basis of the compromises of 1850, confirmed by" both the Democratic and Whig parties- in National Conven* tions, ratified by the people in the election of 1852, 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. and the perpetuation and expansion of this Union ensured to its utmost capacity of embracing, in peace and harmony, every future American State that may be constituted or annexed with a republican form of Govern mem. Iiesolwit That we recognize the right of ihepeo 61 e of all the Territories, including Kansas and [ebraska, acting through the legally and fairly expressed -will of a majority of actual residents, and whenever the number of tbeir inhabitants justifies it, to form a constitution, with or with out domestic slavery, and be admitted into the Union upon terras of perfect equality with the other States. Resolved, That, in view of the condition of the popular institutions of the Old World, and the dangerous tendencies of sectional agitation, combined with the attempt to enforce oivil and religious disabilities against the rights of ac quiring citizenship in our own land, a high and sacred duty has devolved an increased re sponsibility upon the Democratic party of this country, as the party of the Uniou, to uphold and maintain the rights of every State, and thereby to sustain and advance among us con stitutional liberty, by continuing to resist all monopolies andNxclusive legislation (or the benefit of the few at the expense of the many, and by 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 was, 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 people. lltsolcfd., That 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 ! ahoold declare themselves in favor of free seas, of progressive free trade throughout the world, and by solemn manifestations plaee their moral influence by the side of their successful example. Raobmli That our 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 prin ciples involved in the Monroe doctrine*, that their bearing and import should admit of no misconstruction, and should be applied with unbending rigidity. livolved, That a great highway of Nature, as well as the assent of those States most im mediately interested in ita maintenance, has been marked out for a free communication be tween the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and constitutes one of the most 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 t^nely and efficient control which we have a rfe^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 establish with the Government of States within whose dominion it lie*; that we can, under no cir cumstances, surrender our prepouderancc in the adjustment of all questions arising out of it. Hcsolctd, That, in view of so commanding an interest, the people of the United States cannot hut sympathize with the efforts which are being made l>y the people of Central Ame rica to regenerate that portion of the continent which covers the passage across the oceanic iathmus.

AT FORM OF JAJIKO BVCHANAN, OF pbnnivlvanxa. "Resolved, That in the present distracted eon uttion of parties, in which sectional and par tial issues have been allowed to attain a dangerous supremacy, we recognise in the policy of the Democratic party, that which rests upon the Constitution as its basis: and that it is the party which above all others has, in the language of the illustrious Madison, ever continued 'to hold the Union of the States as the basid of their peace and happiness: to sup PL?rtTT ? C?n#titut'on, which is the cement of the Union, as well in its limitations as its au thorities; to respect the rights and authorities reserved to the States and to the people, as equally incorporated with, and essential to, the success of the general system ; and to avoid the slightest interference with the right* of conscience or the functions of religion, so wisely exempted from civil jurisdiction.' . Resolved, 1 hat by t he general consent of the wise and virtuous of all nations, the Cramers of the Republic of the United Slates exhibited, in their individual characters and in the result of their public deliberations, a degree of virtue and a practical statesmanship to which the history of the world affords no parallel; that iu no part of the Federal compact is the wisdom of our fathers more conspicuous, than in leav ing the whole question of slavery to the States in their separate capacities, and that in the pro vision for the re-delivery of fugitives escaped irom labor or service, they demonstrated a sense of justice, an appreciation of the value of the Union, an attachment to its preservation, an avoidance of one-sided philanthropy and impracticable theories of government, which present a proper example for the guidance and imitation ot us their descendants. "Resolved, That we look only to the Coustiiu tion, and the exposition thereof which has been afforded by the practices of the Democratic ad ministrations, for the chart of our policy. That these constitute, until the fundamental law is changed by methods which itself provides, the hiynext law of our obedience as citizens; and that we utterly discard that particular and ex aggerated sympathy, the attempt to carry which into practice is at the perd of unr dear est interests as a nation, and threaten< the in fliction of evils of tenfold magnitude to thine which it proposes to heal. "Resolved, That the equality of the Stal** i* the vital element of the Constitution itself, and that all interference with the rights of the ales, by those who seek to disregard the g"&ra"te,ea of the P*81. a?d by all others, should be rebuked with the same spirit that would denounce and repudiate all attempts to erect odious distinctions between those who ate entitled to share the blessings and benefits of our free institutions. 44 Resolved, That the effort to direct the power ?f the government by anti slavery agitations, under the various names and phases of Fre? Soil ism, Anti-Nebraskaism, Fusionism, and Re publicanism, and by interfering with the rights of conscience in establishing a religious test as a qualification for office, by the secret oath-bound society of the Know-nothings, is opposed both to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution, and to the earnest teachings and practice of iu earliest and most honored administrators. Resolved, That we are now as ever unaltera y oppoaed to the doctrines and designs of all organizations which contemplate the overthrow u- if ri ?nd re,1gious rights of the citiaen which, like the equality of tin- States, is a sacred and inalienable right, never to be interfered with by factious parties and reckless legislation, with out a subversion of the primary objects of our political system, and a repudiation of the guar antees of the past, and the hopes of the future. Resolved, That in the repeal of the act known tb? Mwsoun Compromise act, and the pas sage of the act organizing the Territories ol Kansas and Nebraska, free from unconstitu tional restrictions, the last Congress performed a work of patriotic sacrifice, in meeting the demands of sectional excitement by unshaken adhereuce to the fundamental law. ' 1 hat this legislation cannot be deemed unnecessary, but that it was expedient to meet the quest ions of which it disposed, and which could never admit of a more easy settle ment than at present. That we recognize in t the application to the Territories of the timed States of the rule of 'equal and exact justice to all men,' of all sections of the Con federacy, which was designed by the framerj of our Government, and which was defined as JefferLn* WMeDtial Pri"oiP'e? by the immortal "Resolved, That the Democracy of Pennsyl vania, following the counsel of some of the wisest statesmen of the North and South, were ready on more than one occasion in the past to extend Um Missouri Compromise line to the Pacific, so as to make it the basis of a final set tlement of the question of slavery in the Terri n"lH!lH th" j)roP?,ition wa8 rejected, in 1848, on the ground that it involved an un due concession to the South, by the very me? who now clamor for a restoration of the Mis soun line, there seemed to be bat one wise alternative left, and tkat was to refer the whole question of slavery in the Territories to the people thereof, to be regulated as they may deem proper; and we, therefore, cheerfully ex tend our hearty support to the policy of the Government as recognised in the compromise measures of I860, and embodied in the laws organiaing the Territories of Kansas and Ne braska."
