To the iradesnt and Mebersm of te State Doemcratic Con
Your cemmittee on resolutions and the eMdli
tion of the State respectfully report-
Tbhat they have had under consideration the
resolutions referred to them on yesterday. They
bhave deemed it nnecessery to report separately
upon each of these resolutions, but submit the fel
lowing series a a substitute for them all.
J. A. FUQro, Chairman.
SResolred, That the Democracy ot Louisaana,
assembled in convention for the first time since
the adjournment of the national Democratic oou
veaties, indorse the platform of prinoiples
adopted by that body, and pledge themselves to
maintain and defend them.
S Reeo&-ed, That the nominations, made by that
coaventioe, of Horatio Seymour, for presMdeat,
sad Frank P. Blair, for vice president, have al
s ý re wew recognise in them
men worthy to be the standard bearers of consti
tntionai liberty in this its hour of extreme peril,
r and we pledge them our continued, earnest and
1:'esolred, That we heartily and entirely endorse
the recent letter of Gen. Robt. E. Lee, and other
distinguished Southern citizens, to Gen. oeorsanes,
and we declare that It is a truthful statement of
a the felings, wishes sad purposes of the people
of the South; that, while we are urged by every
consideration of material and political Interest to
desire a full and speedy restoration to the Union,
with all our constItutional rights, and we recog
nize, to the fullest extent, our duty to support
the Constitution, to obey the laws passed in con
;,;;:; with It, and to maintain the Union in its in
Reiolked, That we recognize the abolition of
slavery as an accomplished fact, and that it is not
our interest or wish ever to revive it. That we
believe that the Interests of the two rices in ume
South are inseparably connected, and we pledge
ourselves to protect and defend the colored oeop Is
of this State in full and free exerqise of all their
I;r1solrd, That we look with indignation and
alarm upon the attempts now being made by the
Republican party of this State to deny the white
people oi the State a fair registration and a fair
election ; that this party ought, at least, to be sa
tified with the disranchisements contained in the
present Couetittion : that we have an unqtestion
able right todemand and we do demmad that all who
are entitled to it shall be registered, and that an
opportunity shall be afforded to those thus regis
tered to cast their votes in November next, and
that if we are deprived of these clear and unques
tionable rights, the responsibility for the conse
quences that may follow so glaring an outrage
must fall upon those who thus violate and trample
uron the laws they themselves have enacted.
