Uh, Heiulrtd, That the platform of principles established by the National Democratic Con vention at Cincinnati, is the only authoritative expression of Democratic doctriue, and we de ny the right of any power on eaith, except a like body, to change or interpolate that plat form, or to prescribe new and Uilleisnt tests ; that this tney Will neither do themselves nor permit it to be done by others, but will recog nize all men as Democrats who stand by and uphold Democratic principles. .'.(A, Uetohed. That in the organization of States, the people have a right to decide ut the polls upon t lie character or their fundamental law, and that the experien e of tha past year, has conclusively demonstrated the wisdom and propriety of the principle that the fundamental law under which a Territory seeks admission mto the Union, should be submitted to the peo ple of such Territory, for their ratification or rejection, at a fair election to be held for that purpose ; and that before auch Territory is ad mitted as a state, such fundamental law should receive a majority of the legal votes ca-t at such election; ami they deny the right and con demu the attempt ol any convention called tor the purpose of framing a Constitution, to im pose the instrument framed by them upon Die people against their known will.
