The bal an I its galleries were crowded to overflowing att'I (he mealing was In all respects entirely sal iaCtctory. Our limit.* will not ptrmit us to giv< •Ten a synopsis of this »j>eech which was elo quetit, argumentative, dignified and entirely free from any thins low or abusive of tboee wh< differ from Mr. W&diburn in political opinion Mr. Washburn presented the vital rotations in tolved in the campaign in such a manner as nol only to make his political friends frel proud o their candidate, but alto to extort praise frou his opiwnents who hrard him, many of whom do not hesitate to give him credit for his can dor, fairness an I eloquence. He answered in the fullest manner the question "What have wo in the free States to do with slavery ?'* by showing with a force of logie and an array ol (kct4 which carried conviction, that in all points, economical, political and moral, the people ol the free States were injuriously affected by iti existence, that through the votes of those in iti Interest, the policy of free labor as indicated ic hoinesteid bills, measures to encourage oui commerce, to open and develop the resources o our country through needed improvement U the harbors and riven In the great west, U protect and encourage domeitic industry, wai continually assailed or stricken down, and thai from the necessities of the case, Slavery wai continually aggressive on the rights and inter eats of free labor. K*Ublishiog these facts by reference to the history of the acta of the slavt interests In Congress, he then passed to th< bearing which the institution had over the mor al welfare of the country and the influence which it exerted In destroying the ptiblio mor als and weakening the bonds of a republican government, and its tendency by its constant efforts to strengthen and extend itself to change oar form of government from a Republic founded on the will ol the people, to an Oligar chy. His analyialkm of the Dred Scott case and presentation of tbo points said to have been decided in that most infamous decision, and the bearing which the op'aion would have on our institutions if accepted by the people, was clear and convincing. Mr. Washburn, in speaking, deals with Using iss'ies, such as interest the heart of the people and whieh concern the fun damental principles of government, and he does this in a manner to extort praise even from those who do not agree with him in political principle. He »|>oke for the space of an hoar and a hall, and throughout the entire time the audience listened with almost breathless atten tion. the silence being only broken by oc casional manifestation* of assent to the remarks of the speaker.which indicated the interest they felt in the great subjects he was discussing or their appreciation of his eloquent reasoning.

And thisantidemocratic doctrine, which wan acoutcd aa anti-democratic in the early day* of tbe Uepublie, the followera of Douglaa and the followers of Breckinridge now ac cept and call upon the people to endorse. Au.kii.ia Lincoln haa eaid, " If I were in Congress, and a vote should como upon a question whether Slavery ahould be prohibi ted in a new territory, in spite of tho Dred Scott deciaion, I would rote that it ahould." Democrats, young and old, who pretend they are following in tho footateps of Thomas Jeflcraon, and who claim hiui aa tho father of Democracy, and who awcar by Gen. Jackson, hold up tbeir hand* in holy horror at thia declaration of Mr. Lincoln, denying the plenary authority of the Supreme Court orcr the Constitution and tho other branch es of the Government. Tliere are souiu indisputable historical facta connected with this matter, which hare been linkod together by. the Philadelphia North American, which are worthy of atten tion, and which go to nhow tho inconsisten cy of men c fanning fellowship with Thomas Jefferson and (ten. Jackson as Democrats, while supporting either tho Douglas or the Breckinridge wings of tho Democracy, j These historical facts are these : 1. Mr. Madison, tho Virginia resolution** of *98, and tho whole Democratic party, of the first and pure formation, denied that the Supreme Court hod any moro authority in tho interpretation of tho Constitution titan either Congnws or the Executive. A large ] |<ortion of the Federalists agreed with them. I 1!. Besides the defiance of that Court by , the State of Georgia, a defiance which Do ■ mocrucy »u»tuin<-d, (Jen. Jaekron Niid that a > United States lluuk was not Constitutional, while the Supreme Court had said that it ira* so, in a decision never yet reversed. Detuuc racy upheld the defiant stand taken by Jack ton, in both branches of Congrew, and the whole country over. We did not then quote > tho languago employed in his mtwage veto ing tho re-charter of the I lank, but to gag tho mouth of cavil we will quota it now : " The opinion of the Judges h.is no more authority over Congress than the opinion of Congress tver the Judgn*; and on that point tho President is inde|iendeiit of both. The > authority of the Supreme Court must not, therefore, lie permitted to control the Con , gress or the Executive, when acting in their legislative coiuciti"*, but is to have only such influence as tno force ot their reasoning may 1 deserve." 3. The democratic national conventions held at Baltimore and Cincinnati in ISoJ and 1830, reaffirmed tho doctrines advanced by Madi*>n and by the famous Virginia resolu tions of *98 and W—thuw resolutions, with Madisou's report, distinctly and entirely re i pudiating tho right of the Supreme Court to interpret tho general law indc(«mdently of tho legislature and tho executive. Their ar gument was that tho Supremo Court, if in vested with this national omnipotence, might bo constituted, as it has lately been, on a partisan basis—might extend, abridge, or abolish the rights ol the citisen and tho in stitution* of the nation—might, against the will of the people themselves, control all their present and shape all their future. 4. At tho democratic national convention assembled last month at Charleston, there was presented the following resolution, the preamble of which wo omit as needless : " RrtolrtJ, That tho democratic party will abide by the decisions of the Supreme Court of tho United State* on tho question of Con stitutional law." inai convention, i% wnwcmiu wmcnnuii, | drawn from *11 quartiTi of the I n ion—re- i jectcd the resolution by a to to of 23S nap against 21 yeas!

Reduc-' ing the answer from fractions, of which they have already had too much, we will place it I in easy intergvr»—.14 to 3. AfUr this little summary of tho indisput able proof we gave by fact* and records, a* to the view of the (unctions of the Supreme < <>urt taken by the tirnt democracy under Madi*m, the recond under Jackson, and the third at iU national conventions in 1KW, l> >•> and 1800, let u* now quote (rom n Mill higher expounder ol democratic doctrine. Thomas Jcflersun, in letters written in IM», 1KJ0 and 1*23, th« to j . K<<*ite, the second to Mr. Janis.the third to Judge John.* *, expressed hiaaeir M ruj. lows. To Judge lUwne he wrote thus: "In denying the right tb«y (the Judgm of the Supreme Court) usurp, of exclusively 1 explaining the Constitution, 1 go lurtlwr > than yiHi do, if | un<W"p>Lu*l rightly your' quotation fnw the hetlernli.«t, of an ot.inion ' • that the judiciary is the last resort in re-1 lation to thu oth. r demrimenU of the gov- \ eminent, but not in relation to the rights ol the |nrtios to the couifiact under which the judiciary is derived.' If this opinion be' sound, then, indeed, ia our constitution a complete ftlo dt $*. For, intending to estab lish thnw dejnrUuonU, eo-ordinate and in ' de|»'wlent, that they might check and lial anew one anotlicr, it has giren, according to this opinion, to one of them alone the right to prescribe rules for the gorernmont of the other; and to that one, too, which ie un* elccted by and independent ol the nation. The Constitution, on thie hypothesis, ie a mere thing of wax in the hand of the jndio iary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please. It ahould be remcm beml, u an axiom of eternal truth in poli tic*, that whatever power in anj government ia independent, in ai*olute nl«o; in theory ooly at firet, while the spirit of the people ia up, but in practice, as fast os that relaxes. Independence can bo trusted nowhere but with the people in mass. 1 hey are inherent ly independent of all but moral law." To Mr. Jttrria ho thus expressed himsolf: "The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that, to whatever hands eonlidid, with the corruptions of timo ami jwrty, its member* would become des ists. It luis more wisely made all the de triments oMtjual and co-sovereign within themselves." In 18:13, only t«*o years bofore his death, which was strangely simultaneous with that of John Adams, ho wrote to Judge Johnson as follows: " I cannot lay down my pen without re curring to one ol the subjects of my former letter, for, in truth, there is no danger I ap prehend so much us the consolidation of our govern men t£by the noiseless, and therefore un alarining, instrumentality of the Supreme Court. This is the form in which federalism now arrays itself; and consolidation if the present principle of distinction between Re publicans and pseudo-Republicans, but real Federalists." It will bo observed that Madison, Jeffer son, Jackson and the Democratic parties have for seventy years stood on grouud entirely different from that now occupied by eithor wing of the Democratic party, and with strong emphasis and many repetitions, have declared that the Supremo Court was not tho authoritative and final intcprcter of the Con stitution,—but in tho language of Gen. Jackson, its authority over Congress and tho Kxecutivo was " to have ouly such influence as tho force of their reasoning may deaervo." Abraham Lincoln, in fellowship on this point with Madison, Jcflerson, Jackson, and with Democracy in general, employed, in a speech delivered la«t year at Cincinnati, tho following language: ** Tho people of these United States are tho rightful masters both of congresses and courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow tho men who pervert the Constitution." 'I'llis wo Denote is (no oniy saie uocinnc. So JcfTcreon believed and taught, and Gen. Jacluon, in Ins warfare on tho United State* Hunk, wns governed by the mioo views. Men who assault Mr. Lincoln liecauno he enter tains similar view* to theme held by Madison, Jeflcraoii and Jackson, should not profano tho word Democracy by calling themselves Democrats or insult the memory of those great expounders of Democracy by claiming any sympathy with tho doctrines they pro mulgated. Let them call themselves Doug las men and Breckinridge men, Supreme Court men, anything but Democrats, for taking this naiuu they aruonly " stealing the livery of heaven to serve the Devil in." >on>lntcrveution and the Slnre Trade* l>ougla*i*iu und the Slave Trade. A eoateuiporary anal ires the Douglas doc trine of uou-inturveutiuu iu the folluwing man ner : The Douglas doctrine of Squatter Sovereign ty was well staled iu the Baltimore Convention before the split, by Mr. Gaulden, uf Georgia. Mr. G. said that he had not joined the houie of York or the house of Laucaster; he ho|iedsuuie plan might be devised by which the party could be united. Its declared hiuiaelf " a pro-slavery man in every sense of the word, and an African slave-trade man." Slavery, in his opinion Is founded on the law of uature and the law of God, and is a blessing to all races. Those who ask for protection for slaver)* in the territories are advocating "a mere abstraction." It would be much better for a line of police along the bor ler, to " hang the thieving abolitionists who are stealing our niggers " This would be a practical measure. Having made an allusion to Virginia as a slavo-broedini; State, a Virginia delegate called him to order, resisting the im putation. Gauldcn replied: " Well, I will say the slave-breeding 8tate of Georgia, then. I glory in being a slave-brced er myself (Loud laughter.) 1 will face themu sic tujself, and I have got as many negroes as any man from the State of Virginia. And as I invited the gentlemen of this Convention at Charleston to visit my ]>hntation, I will say ngain that if they will come to see me, I will show thein as flue a lot of negroes, and the pure African, too, as they can tind anywhere. And 1 will show them as handsome a set of little children there as can be seen, (laughter,) ami any quantity of them, too. (Renewed laugh ter.) And I wish that Virginia may be as good a sitve-trading and slave-breeding State as Georgia; and in saving that, 1 do not mean to l« disres|>ectlul to Virginia, but I do not mean to dodge the question at all." What must hate been the character of the body in which such a s|>eeeh as this could have been received with " laughter?" 31 r. Uiuiiirn proc«we*i iu innuuucv uicuuo i trine of non-intervention in the following I terms: "This ia my Mc«i of non-intervention. I want the State of Virginia, if she has negroes, i lo have as many a* she plea*e«. If you want ilavcrv in Massachusetts, I want you to have it. If you want slavery in Indiana, and Ohio, unl Wisconsin, ami in Minnesota, in God's laine have it. It is your right to have slaves. , utd just as many or as few a* you please ; I will never join any party which desires to force ilavery anywhere, or to keej> it from any place. [Applause.) I believe that is regulated by the aw uf God, of nature's God, and all history troves that to be so, ami all that I ask is • hands off," leave it to the people of the States and of the Territories to settle that mat er for themselves under the Constitution of the 1 'nited States." (Applause.) Tnis suited the Douglas men. who recogniied Jaulden as a genuine disciple of the great chief if the Squatter. We understand this to be pre* isely the Douglas doctrine. The Georgia ortw or proceetal with strict consistency, to carry >ut the doctrine still further, lie said : "I say I go lor non-intervention in the broad at sense of the term. I say that this whole hing should be taken out of the hands of the ieneral Government- I say it is all wrung to >e spending two or three millions of dollars an uiafly from our pockets, and sacrificing thous ands of lives upon the ooast of Africa, in that errible clime, to prevent our going there to jet a few negroes. If it it right for ui to go o I'irginia hhJ buy • ntjro, and pay Stf.OOO ror him, it is r«/mi//y right fur ui to go to -1f ■i[ca. vktrt ice can g*t thtm for 030. [Ap. >Uuse and laughter.] Here is the condition *e arc plaosd in. and you may as well come to four renscs and fhee the music." I'robably Douglas and his followers would shrink from this conclusion, because the slave irad« is a little unpopular in the free States; but nobody san deny that G&uUlcn's logic is impregnable, and that the doctrine of non-in tervention, strictly carried out to its legitimate rvwults, would demand the abolition of thslaws and treaties against ths African slave trade. If slavery is neither right nor wrong, but a mere matter of taste and Interest, then there Is no reason whatever for allowing the Georgian planter to go to Virginia for his slaves while he is threatened with hanging If be d^ves • bargain with the King of Dahomey. And If Massachusetts may establish slavery, and rive her rich eltlsens power to own their bouss and fcnn servants, there is a piece of gross aswrpa tion la Congress to eompel them to pay 93,000 apiece for (beta, when by taking off their war vessels and opening the trade, they ean supply thsrasalvsa for 930 apieo*. IT" The press of Virginia stands M for Breckinridge to A for Douglas. Douglas' Vote to Bepeal the M PliUi| Bounties." Hit Vote againit allowing the Fitktrmia ertn thru yeari to ehangt their butintH. In May 1NIW—only two years ago—the bill t< repeal the Fishing Bounties passed the pro-slar. ery Senate of the United States. It had foi some time been urged upon that body undei the lead of that wctiona]" firewater"—Cky oi Alabama. The bill, as it was before the Senate proposed to repeal the Bounties at once, am when it was evident that the m^ority wen bent on passing It, Senator Wilson of Mass* ehusetts, moved an amendment pro riding tha the Bounties should not oease until after th< year 1803. In offsrla* the ameodmsot, Sena tor Wilson staled that if the bill was to be pass «l against all the efforts of its opponents, h< wished at least "(ogive the capital and per torn employed tn the Cod Fithtriet an oppor (unity to work gradually sat of the butinen to that they might ha affected as little atpouibl by the change.

It will be again observed that every Republi can Senator voted against the re|wal, wliih DOUGLAS with his pro-slavery comrade*, vo tod for it, and carried it. Had it not beer stopjied in the House by the efforts and votei of the llepublicuu members — conspicuoui among whom was IS11AEL WASIIUUUN, Jr., —the Fishermen of Maine would to day be de prived of their Bounty.

The Kenncbec Journal has rccclved a full file of the Belfast Free Preu for 1837— '5N—edited by Ephraim K. Smart, then collec tor of Belfast. It aflbrila material* for a moat scathing ex|>oee of Smart's advocacy of Le compton an-1 aupport of the administration at that time, until he was turue<l ont of office by Mr. Buchanan, when lit immediately turned hi* coat and became a flaming "popular sorer eignty " niau. We copy as much of the article as we have room for. The Journal says : Iu Smart's spmh at Belfast he made tlie fol lowing declaration : " Col. Smart said he had ntrtr tupporlel the ml mitt ion of the Lecumptun Comtitution tx rtjd ujton the tiprtu condition that the ques ilon of constitution, nla\ery included, thould ht immediately mhmitted to IKt )xople; and even this submission, ho said, was to be no rulo in the future." The I lock laud Democrat and Frtt Pre**, ed ited in a great part by Mr. Smart himseir, had previously made a similar disclaimer. Thous ands of persons in the State will remember his leal in belief of the Lecompton swindle, and there lies at this moineut before us a full file of the Belfast Frtt Prtu, of which Mr. Smart boasts t« have been the exclusive political edi tor from the day it was started until its exis lence was merged with that of the Ilockl.ind Democrat. From that file we shall proceed to ihow the totally abandoned manner in which Smart approved the whole Lecomptou villainy, to long as there was any hope of inducing President Kuchauan to re-appoint him Collec tor of lklfast The famous Lecompton Convention finished Its labors on the 10th of Nov., 1847, and pro vided for a submission of the ilatery rlauit m/y of the Constitution on the Wist of Deceui t>er following. The " SCIIEDULE " which de Sne<l the mode of the submission, left the |>eo ple the power to vote for the " CoxrrtTtrno* with i/urrry," or for " Comtitution with no ilarerybut It gave them no power whatever to rtject the Constitution in toto. They were forced to accept the Constitution whether they wanted It or not. The " SCHEDULE " more over provided that "NO ALTERATION SHOULD BK MADE IN TUB CONSTITUTION UNTIL AFTER 1NM," and then only upon "a vote of TWO-THIRDS OK THE LEGISLA rUBE." And in addition to all these tyranni cal and outrageous provisions the Schedule wound np with the following astounding delar ation ; "BUTNO ALTERATION SHALL I1E MADE IN THE CONSTITUTION TO AFFECT THE RIGHT OF PROPERTY IN THE OWNERSHIP OF SLAVES." It must be remembered also that the miscre ants who manufactured this pieoe of pro-slav. ery villainy were all elect*d by fraud- fraud so egregious that Got. Robt. J. Walker himself declared that at 'Oxford ami McOee precincts.' whrrt teventeen hundred rote* were reported, not forty legal rotrr* reeided. The whole affair, tor rascality and brasen-fkoed outrage, stands unparalellcd in the political records of this eountry. Nevertheless as soon as Ephralui K. Smart learned that President Buchanan Intend ed to endorse the swindle, he hastened to ap. prove U and defend all the villainy of Atehisoa, Calhoun A Co. In the Belfhst Fret Prtu of Not. 37, 1837, there appeared a lengthy article, supporting Ue whole Leoonptoa villainy. In that article Smart said ; , _ " We hare read the lehedul* of the Constitu tion of Kannss, to be submitted to a rote of all the oltlsens of that Territory on the 31st day of Deeember. II thould he tmHt/aetury to every citiien or the United State*. It providee that ftl) white inhabitaau may vote for the Consti tution " with slavery" eoduned on his vote, or the Constitution with " bo slavery '* to en dorad. WB REGARD THR PROPOSITION THU8 SUBMITTED AS FAIR AND JUSfc" The character of the Schedule which Smart •aid " should it satu factory to erery cilUentf the United Statu," ia sufficiently given above. In the next iseue of the Free Prest, Dee. 4., Smart emphasised his approval of the swindle, and iwruaebed other Deeaoeratfe patten in the Bute fur not " coining alone." Hear Smart on these point*! The following ia hia article: " We hare keen censured by one or two qf our Democratic contemporaries for our posi tion upon the Kansas Constitution, because we declared that the Constitution and its ad mission ' should be satisfactory to every citizen qf the United States. It't now repeat what we hare said, and say further, that it trill be sus tains! by the Democratic press of the A'orth. Thope papers which hav« not come into it, will srem do eo. The Portland Jlraut, the Ban gor Union, the ROCKLAND DEMOCRAT, end other Democratic papers, erprets the mme opinion as the Free Press upon the JTansas ContliMion." In another article, in defending the Leoomp ton inliuity nt great Irncth, Smart accused the Free Sute men of " NULLIFICATION" and "TREASONABLE INACTION." simnly because they were not willing to be swindled out vt their jiolitical rights. Hear Smart on this point! He said: " We understand the constitution made by the Lecompton Constitution to be a good one, ! and like the Constitution of the Western States. Why should we get up "bugbears" about the Constitution, if thrre is an opportun ity to Kettle the slavery rfuestlonT now much more FASTIDIOUS are modrrn Black Repub licans than the fathers of the Revolution !

Smart went the full length with the President, endorsing his positions in the following extrav agant Isngusge: "IlBDOCTBIJfn WILL BB SCSTAtXKD BT TIIB Anebicab no rut, in srmtor all r actions and orrosiTiox. ITS DISCUSSION OF THE KAN. 8A8 CONSTITUTION IS WORTHY OF THE SUPREME EXECUTIVE OF A GREAT NA TION, AND WILL MEET WITH THE AP PROVAL OF THE HEARTS AND UNDER STANDINGS OF THE PEOPLE." All these endorsements of the gigantlo swin dle were volunteered by Smart in advance of the 31st Dec.—the day on which tho slavery clause was to be submitted. alone voted in the most fraudulent manner, and of eourse I lie slavery clause waa approved. In his issue of January 1st, 1MB, (four days ' after the news reached him,) he said : " It will be seen that the Lrromrox CONSTI TUTION IIIS UEKM AUOrTKII WITH TIIK I'RO^HV rar clause. • ••••• Now that the Constitution Ins been voted up. on by the l'KOPLK, it will conk »Eroax Con.

On the the 3d of January Sir. Buchanan sent the Leoompton Constitution to Cuugreoa with that remarkable message, whoae doctrinra rent the Democratic party in twain. In that document tho President made tho following as tounding declaration : " It has been solemnly adjudged by thehigh est judicial tribunal known to our laws, that slavery exists in Knnsas Ay rirlue of the Con stitution qf the United Slatti. A'ansas is, thsrtfore, at //its moment, as much a Slav< State «i Georgia or South Carolina. • • •Slavery ran therefore never be prohibited in Kansas, except by meant of a Constitutional provision." Lifelong Democrats halted at this, but Smart swallowed it without an 4[Jort. in the Free Press of Feb. 5, he said : •• We have received the President's message on the Lecomptou Constitution, and it will iij*> pear in our next number. Tho President shows up tho lUkllKLH IN KANSAS, and the lenders front Lane down, and exposes tho obatinacy of the lilack Itepublicans of that territory in vot. ing.

The Wnr In Rjrnn. Tho London .Vein has a letter from Beirut, Syria, dated June Oth, which gives an account of a cruel inaMacre of the Christians at IUsh.-ty la, or Ibuheys, a town at the bottom of Mount Hermon, by the Druses and oonnived at by the Turks. Home two thousand men. women and children, were put to death with circumstanccs ot the greatest atrocity. The latest news from Beirut is contained In Monday's Boston Trat W/cr, under date of June 13th. This letter shows that when the Christians fled toSidonfor protection, the Turk* shut tho fates in their faccs, and not only left thorn to the Druses, but assisted in their massacre. Tyro is in a state of agitation, and the American Vice Consul, in feit of his life, has requested liberty of the Consul General at Beirut to come to that city for safety. The different consuls at Beirut have called for ve*»rl* of wnr to come to that port to assist in protecting foreign residents. Five men ot war, Russian, French and English, are lying then, and thus prevent any Insurrection ary movement. All the inland citiee are in great danger. Damascus, Aleppo, and other place* may any day be destroyed, and the Christians put to death. Habeyia, an Ameri can missionary station, through the treachery of the Turks, was entered by tho Druses, who butchered the Christians and burnt the town, including the American church property. At Ilasbryia, 800 Christians were massacred that had taken refuge in the Governor's palace. A postscript dated June lAth, shows that the civil war continues with unabated ferocity.— Damascus is undergoing a selge, and all the places the Christians hold, except one have been taken and burnt. The war vessels sta tioned at Beirut can only protect the place and preserve eaeh the property of lU own nation. What Is most surprising, the policy of the English leads them to uphold the Turkish Gov ernment, and, of neceesity, to support both the Turks and the Druses. Is is for their Interest, and the preservation of their East India possesa . ions that a weak Government like that of Turk ey should possess Syria and the Turkish Em pire. Henos they oppose those strong meat uree necessary to extinguish such a civil war. Russia awl France an desirous of dismember ing Turkey—Russia to have the Blaek Sea prov isoes and Conrtantlnople, and France to hart Syria and the Holy Land. England wlU not submit to suoh a division. Were U not for her influence, France and Russia would tush ia at onoe, tad not only pot down th« civil war, bat extinguish Um Turkish power.

On the 17th instant, the Republican Con gressional Convention for tho 13th District in Ohio wu held at Shelby, and the Hun. John Sherman «u unanimously renominated for Congress. In rc*|>onse to hia nomination, Mr. Sherman mado an eloquent apeeeh, accepting the nomination, and setting forth clearly the principles and aims of the Republican party. We give an extract: Now the Republican party is the only com pact political organisation of the day. It is the only party that can write a distinctive creed, and put tho same construction uimhi it in every section of the country The Chicago Platform if such a erred. No man who can read need be cheated by it. Was it so in any other party? That very re»p*ctablo party headed by Ik-il and Everett has a very good platform—the ConMi tution aud the Union—u|M.n which >11 its mem ber! oin stand, but so can every body cIj-c.— They have no exclusive ri#ht to this platform. Republicans staud side by side with them. Ask these gentlemen about Slavery in the Territo ries—about the Ifouiciiteid—the Pacific Rail* road, and kindred questions, and you have at once tho confusion of U tbel. Mow is it with tho Democratic party? Wo have the highest authority—that < f a National Convention—that it is broken and demolished. Its platform for four years has been a IMphio Oracle, reading ono way in the North and another in the South. The attempt to construe it at Charlentju ami Daltimore, opened wide radical difference* ot opinion that they knew existed We have two divisions of the Demo cratic party, one for ltreckinridge, one for Douglas, one for squatter sovereignty, one for protection of slavery in the territories, both regular, both national, Both genuine. Hut even now, divided and distracted as tho Democratlo party is, tho samo deception is canricd on by the Douglas wing. Wo have on the same ticket squatter sovereignty and a slave code for the territnrisa— unfriendly legislation and the Dnxl Scott case—non-intervention and the African slave tra<le—Douglas and Johnson. Honest men aro tired of this paltering in •* double sense. They demand something dellnite and s|»eclflo— something frank, bold and honest They have been deceived by two Democratic Administra tions. They arc too much in earnest to be de ceived a<piin. How different is the position of the Republi can party. They present their principles In living letters of light upon the Republican par ty. They stand ny the Constitution as it waa written by our Fathers—as it was oonstrued by them—as it was administered by them. We wish no new lights to expound it, no sectional interest to amend it, and no traitorous hand to strike it down. We are for the Union of these States without limitation or mental reservation, while the trees grow and the water runs. We are for tho equal rights of all citizens, native and naturalited, and for their protection at homo ami abroad. We are for the equality of the Htates. and the citixens of the States. We hate chosen ourstandanl-bearers, and al though other names were presented, eminent for their services, ability an<l patriotism, yet all differences about men were buried in the Wigwam of the Convention at Chicago. We art all for Lincoln and Hamlin, not becauae we like them better than other Republicans, bat be cause they are the chosen Representatives of our principles, ami In their own lives furnish a striking czamplo of the results of free labor and free Institutions. We intend to elect them.— (Immense applause ) If we (ail, ws will sub mit to the will of the people. If we succeed, we will see that the will of the people is respect ed and obeyed. (Applause.) It is now sixty rears since the Republican party, under the lead of Jefferson, made iU first great straggle. Under the same name— with the same principles—with the same tiust in all the people—with an unshaken faith in the doctrines of tho Declaration of Independence— we enter into this contest. We believe that the results of a Republican victory will^lissinate the opposition of our adversaries, except those who seek excuses to dissolve the Union, and with three we have no compromises to make.— It la high time that we asoerUin their number, and test their strength. We are a!l tired—even our Douglas Demos ratio friends aro tired—of this constant threatening and whining about dissolving a Government which they have con trolled so long, nnd can control no more Let the Republican l>arty assume the administra tion of the Government with a fixed resolve to obey the Constitution in all things—to give each State, and the |>eoplo of each State, their full constitutional rights, remembering, howev. er, that this Government was made for fiee men, and not tor slavs*- that Freedom is na tional and Hlavery sectional—that slaves under State laws are ptrtont under the Constitution of Mm United Statca, and not liorsn, cattle and wild bowta. Let it be true to its name—its his tory and platform—and >ou will And the day for dissolution will be postponed awhile, then indefinitely, and the most noisy about diaunion will be begging office of Old Abe Lincoln. rT Sensible Democrats every where, Brack* enridf/emcn and Douglasitas. are ooming frank ly to admit that Lincoln will be elected.
