The Chair announced that Mr. Barr,
of Connecticut, was now entitled to one
hour's debate.
A resolution was adopted that the
gentleman from Delaware, Mr. Bayard,
be allowed the Moor ten minutes.
Mr. Barr conceded to this request, as
Mr. Bayard was a member of the Com

At the close of the call, when Dela
ware voted no, there were loud hisses.
The Chair appealed to the convention
to treat with respect the vote of any and
every State.
The delegates said that the disturbance
was iu the galleries.
Before the vote was announced, par
mission was asked by the Chairman for
Alabama to make an explanation of the
change of her vote.
Objection being made, the Chairman
ruled that while Alabama had a right
to change her vote, he could not explain
why subsequently an unanimous con
sent was given.
Mr. Shorter Alabama took two
miuutes to explain that there were in
the pending resolutions some statements
which some of his delegation could not
indorse without an explanation. Hav
ing said this, he changed the Alabama
vote from twelve ayes aud noes to twen
ty ayes. Cheers.
We, the Liberal Republicans of the

assembled at Cincinnati, proclaim the
following principles as essential to Just
L We recognize the equality of all
men before the law, and "hold that it
is the duty of government, In its deal
ings with the eople, to mete out eq ual
and exact justice to all of whatever
nativity, race, color, or persuasion, re

1 We pledge ourselves to maintain
the Union of these States, emancipation
and enfranchisement, and to oppose
any reopening of the questions settled
by the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fif

was finally subdued seven years ago.
believing that universal amnesty will
result in complete pacification In all
sections of the country.
4. Local self-government with Im
partial suffrage will guard the rights
of all citizens more securely than any
centralized iower. The public welfare
requires the supremacy of the civil
over the military authority, aud the
freedom of person under the protection
of the habeas curput. We demand for
tne individual tne largest liberty con
sistent with public order, for the State
self-government, and for the nation a
return to the methods of peace and
the constitutional limitations of power.
6. The civil service ol the government
has become a mere instrument or parti
san tyranny and personal ambition,
and an object of selfish greed. It is a
scandal and reproach upon free in--ti
unions, and breeds a demoralization
dangerous to the perpetuity of republi
can government
6. Wejtherefore regard a thorough re
form of the Civil Service as one of the
most pressing necessities of the hour;
that honesty, rapacity, and fidelity
constitute the only valid claims to pub
lic employment ; that the offices of the
government cease to be a matter of
arbitrary favoritism, and patronage, and
that public station shall become again
a iuace oi nonor. 10 wis ena it is
imperatively required that no President
shall be a candidate for re-election.
7. We demand a system of Federal
taxation which shall not unnecessarily
interfere with the indusry of the people,
and which shall provide the means
neii-ssary to pay the expenses of the
government, economically administer
ed, the pensions, the interest on the
public debt, ana a moderate annual
reduction of the principal thereof; and
recognizing that there are in our midst
honest and irreconcilable differences of
opinion with reran! to the respective
systems of Protection aud Free Trade, )
we remit the discussion of the subject j
to the people in their Congressional !
Districts, and the decision of Congress
thereon, wnoiiy ire from executive,

x. The public credit must be sacredly
maintained, aud we denounce repudia
tion in every form and guise.
0. A speedy return to specie payments
is demanded alike by the highest con
siderations of commercial morality and
honest government.
10. We remember with gratitude the
heroism and sacrifices of the soldiers
and sailors of the Republic, and no
act of ours shall ever detract from their
justly earned fame or the full rewards
of their patriotism.
11. We are opposed to all further
grants of land to railroads or other cor
porations. The public domain should
be held sacred to actual .Mlrv
12. We hold that it is the duty of tne j Indianapolis July 12. At the atter
govcrnmeiit in its intercourse with noon session of the Republican Con ven
foreign nations to cultivate the friend- tion for the nomination of a Cungress
ship of peace, by treating with all on man and elector at large, Judge Isaac

dishonorable either to demand what is
not right or submit to what is wrong.

Greeley's nomination was made unan
imous. When Governor Hottiuau arose to
cast the vote of ??ew York, her delega
tion was greeted with three cheers.
Order being restored, Governor Hoffman
disputed Missouri's promise to give
Greeley the largest majority ot any
State. He said the If ew York majority
would be larger than Missouri's total
vote. He also expressed his regret that
there had lieen any division of the vote
here. He knew those who did not vote
for Horace Gree'ey were acting coa-
sclentiously, but he desired to appeal to
them. New York i a Democratic State,
has more than four hundred thousand
Democratic votes, aud these were ready
to sacrifice personal preferences and
prejudices on Uie altar ot the country.
He hoped their brethren would do the
same. Great cheers.
After the Chair had auuouuccd the
result of the ballot, Mr. Wallace Penn
sylvania took the platform and was re
ceived with cheers. He said that, ha
obedience to a division of the public
polities of his State, their delegation
had cast a part of their vote against the
gentleman, who, bv the uses and cus
toms of the Democratic party, is now
its nominee for the Presidency. They
would yield to the decision aud accept the
result which the great high court ol ap
peals of the party had decreed. In con
clusion, by the instructions of his dele
gation, he moved that the nomination
be made unanimous. Wild cheers.
Brown was nominated for Vice Presi
dent by a vote of 71: to b for Stevenson,
of Kentucky, and 13 blank.
Upon the announcement of the nom
nation, the "Battle Cry of Freedom
was played by the band", which was fol
lowed by "Hail to the Chief." When
the music ended, a scene was lowered at
the rear of the stage, presenting a view
of the White House. Applause.

Mr. Bayard, on taking the chair, said
this convention was here to-day to re
sist the foul conspiracy formed some
time ago for the destruction of the Dem
ocratic party, and which has now culmi
nated at the operahouse. This conven
tion represents the masses of the Demo-rmt-,
whose voice is not there heard.
Those here present will continue to hold
up the old flag, and if the conspirators
throw it down we will take it up and
bid defiance to the outrage sought to
be perpetrated. Political coalitions,
the President sought to show, never
succeed. Coalitions are founded on bar
gain and sale, but we cannot tell who
the buyers and sellers are, but the taint
will remain. hen Greeley was nomi
nated at Cincinnati a howl of contempt

the Presidency a man who for years has
been the most bitter and implacable
enemy of the Democratic party, this
conference of Democrats from different
States of the Union has been convened
to take 6uch action as the honor and
safety of the Democratic cause aud
the interests of the country demand;
aud as preliminary to and in justifi
cation of our proposed action, we hereby
declare that the aforesaid proceedings
of said National Convention area virtual
dissolution of the hitherto existing or
ganization of the Democratic party;
that they are unconditional in the
abandonment of the principles of the
Democratic party and the acceptance of
such as are conflicting and irreconcilable
with them ; that, by this action, said
convention, as claiming to represent the
Democratio party, has len false to its
obligation of duty to principle, to regard
tor consistency, ana to every sentiment
of political honor; and as it can repre
sent the Democratic party only by ad
herence to its principles, aud can make
nominations which Democrats are bound
to support only by nominating candi
dates who are known und recognised as
Democrats; therefore, the action which
it has taken, so far from being binding
as tne action oi tne Democratic party,
should be spurned by all true Demo
crats, and with unyielding tenacity and
to the utmost extremity denying that
the Democracy is dead, or that It can
ever die while the principles of our
fathers are cherished bv even a few

and essential.
The address was adopted.
Mr. Bitley New York said they
should not make a nomination at the
I present time. He wauled a true Demo
crat as a candidate for President.
A resolution was oflered and adopted
for the appointment of a committee to
secure the attendance of delegates to the
National Convention at Louisville.
Mr. Bitley ottered a resolution that

Vice-President. Laid on the table.

offered a resolution recommending to
the National Convention the following,
to be incorporated in Uie platform:
First An act of universal amnesty
and the restoration of political rights.
Second The repeal of all acts Injuri

Thinl The extension of the pension
laws to the soldiers of the South.
Fourth Payment for the liberated
slaves from the National Treasury.
Fifth A change in the national nag

Judge Flanders remarked that this
was a mere preliminary convention, and
therefore this was not the time and place
to entertain Uie propositions, and on his
motion the report was laid on the table.
The convention adjourned sine die.
