The National Platform mf lb# I nioa
The following is the platform adopted by
the National Convention of the Union Party
held in Baltimore :
i. Resolved, That it i* the highest dutv of
every American citizen to maintain against all
their enemies the integrity of the Union and the
paramount authority of the Constitution and law*
*?f the United States; aud that, laving aside all
differences ami political opinion*, we pledge our
. selves, us Union raeu, animated by n common
I sentiment and aiming at a common object, to do
I everything in our power to aid the Government
iu quelling by force of arm* the rebellion now
ragiug against its authority, and in bringing to the
puuishxneut due to their crimes the rebel* and
traitor* armed against ir.
? Resolved, That we approve the determin
ation of the Government of the United State* uot
to compromise with the rebel*, or to offer any
terun* of pence, except *uch a* may be ba*ed
upon on unconditional surrender of their hostili
tie* and return to their ju*t idlegiance to the
L'oustitutiou uudlaw*of the Uuited States, and
. that we call upon the Government to malutaiu
| this position, and to prosecute the war with the
utmost possible vigor to the complete suppression
of the rebellion, in the full reliance npon the self
sacrificing patriotism and heroic valor, und the
undying devotion of the American people to their
country and Its fVee Institution*.
A. liesolred, That a* slavery was the cause and
now constitute* the strength of this rebellion, and
a* it must be. always and everywhere hostile to
the principle* of republican government, justice
and the national safety demand it* utter and com
plete extirpation from the soil of the Republic
And that while we uphold iuuI maintain tue
acts and proclamations by which the Govern
ment, in its own defense, ha* aimed a death-blow
at this gigantic evil, we are in favor furthermore
of such an amendmeut to the Conslitntiou to be
made by the people iu conformity with ita pro
visions. us shall terminate forever and prohibit the
existence of slavery within it* limit* or the juris
diction of the United State*.
4. Rewired. That the thank* of the Amer
ican people are due to the soldiers aud
sailors of the Army and Navy, who have
periled their lire* in defense of their couurry and
in vindication of the honor of the flag; that tlie
Nation owe* to them some permaueut recogni
tion of their patriotism and their valor, and ample
ami permanent provision for those of their survi
vors who have received disabling and honorable
wounds in the service of their country; and that
the memories of those who have falien in its de
feuse shall be held in grateftrl aud everlasting re
.?>. Hctoirea. i uat we approve ana appiami tne
practical wisdom, the unseltish patriotism and the
uuswerving fidelity to the Constitution ami the
principles of American liberty with which Abra*
haul Lincoln has discharged. under circuni stances
of unparalleled difficulty, the great duties and
re?pou>ibillties of the Presidential office; that we
approve and endorse, as demanded by the emer
gency and essential to the preservation ot the
Nation and as withiu the provisions of the
Constitution, the meusure* and acts which ho
ha.- adopted to defend the Nation against its open
and secret foes: that we approve especially the
Proclamation of Etuaucipatiou. and the employ -
nient a* Union soldiers of meu heretofore
held in slavery ; and that we have full confidence
in his detenniuatiou to carry outjhese and all oth
er Constitutional measures essential to the salva
tion of the country with tull and complete effect.
0. litsolctd, that we deem it essentia) to the
general welfare that harmony should prevail in
the National councils, and we regard us worthy of
public confidence and official trust those ouly who
cordially endorse the principle* proclaimed in
these resolutions. ;ind which should characterize
the ad intnirit ration of the Government.
7. lie so iced. That the Government owes to all
men employed in its armies, without regard to
distinction of color, tlu* full protection of the laws
of war. and that any violation of these laws, or
the usages of civilized nations in time of war. by
the rebels now inarms, should be made, the sub
ject of prompt and full redress.
y. Hetolced, The foreign emigration, which in
the past has added so much to the wealth, devel
opment of resources and increase of power to this
Nation, the asylum of the oppressed of all nations,
should be fostered and encouraged by a liberal
andjn?t policy.
Resoiecd. That we are in favor of the stea
dy construction of the Railroad to the Pacific.
10. Resoiced. That the Natioual faith, pledged
for the redemption of the public debt, must be
kept inviolate, and that for this purpose we re
commend ecouooiy and rigid responsibility in the
public expenditures, and a vigorous and just sys
tem ot taxation ; that it is the dnty of every loyal
State to sustain the credit and promote the use
of the National currency.
U. Raulrtd, That we approve the position
takcu by the Governiueut that the people of the
I'uitcd States can never regard with indifference
the attempt of auy European power to over
throw by force or to supplant the institutions of
any Republican Government on the Western
Continent; and that they will view with ex
treme jealousy. as meuaciug to the peace and in
dependence of their own conntrv, the efforts of
unv such Power to obtain new footholds for mo
narchical Governments, sustained by foreign
military force, in near proximity to the United

Ah ! well, we are wiser at last i
The charming delusion is over :
your dream of devotiop ia put,
And I? am no longer a lover.
But darling. (allow mo the phrant*.
For dimple civility'* sake),
Don't think in this cntaent of lavs
I've anv reproaches to make.
Ah I no? not a querulous word
Shall full from my passionate pen :
The sharp little scoldings yon'ro heard
F never shall utter again.
But If in this final adieo
Too ehilly for even a kiss,
I venture a comment or two,
You surely won't take it amis*.
I'm thinking, my dear, of the day.
(Well, habit in certainly queer.
And still in a love like way
1 call v?a " darling " and " dear !")
I'm thinking, I say, of the time
I vowed you were chariningl v clever,
And raved of your beauty in rhyme.
And promised to love you forever ?
Forever ! a beautiful phruse,
Suggestive of heavenly pleasure
That millions and millious of days
Were wholly unequal to measure !
And yet, as we sadlv have wen,
The case in remarkably clear,
Ti? a word that may happen to mean
Rather lees than a calendar year f
Yet I never have broken my vow,
Although 1 admit that 1 swore
To love you forever, nud now
Confess that 1 love yon no more ;
For since you're no longer the xamo
(Ileaveu pardon and pity u* both !)
To be loving you now, I proclaim
Were really breukiag my oath !

The hard iack IjIne. ? &. western
correspondent with Sherman's army
writes : An old lady of the Partington
school was fonnd the other day in a terri
ble state of consternation on the approach
of our forces to this point. Johnston's
raccrs had passed through the neighbor
hood, and everything ? even the poultry,
pork and cattle had been taken with the
malaria of "falling back." The old lady
was left entirely alone, deplorably wring
ing her hands, with poverty as her only
companion, and it was strongly apparent,
even in her speech. She viewed first one
hearty, jolly, fat-sided "Yank," then an
other, as much surprised ft their gift of
gab as their lack of horns, when one, an
enormously huge buckeye, stepped into
the yard to Quench his thirst and fill his
canteen at a dilapidated specimen of a
well. Says he ? " How are you, Auntyr"
" Tolablc ailin', jis now." " We've got
here at last." "Where did vom come
from r Er yer hookers or /linkers, or is ycr
i hermines ?" " There are some boys about
who might, I reckon, hook a chicken or
two ; but we're all Buckeyes in the pot."
" Lord ! you don't say bo. I've hearn
tell of trees what bore them ar nuts, but
never seed any afore. How'd you git
here?" "Well, if Uncle Abe wants any
help, he just sings out to our Governor,
up in Ohio, and when Johnny Brough
shakes the trees, just as many as he wants
lets go all hold entirely, and roll
right down here on the hard-tack line."
?? Fore God, no Not her new line r How
many lines has you'ns all got ? We'uns
almos taxed t'death 'ready ? 'notber line'll
hang us all sure." " Haint you folks got
about as much of this as you want ?"
says Buckeye." " Got r We isn't got
aothin. Done loss all we ever had got.
I don't see what you'ns all want, way
down here to Georgy." " We come down
here to stop this muss. When we get
through with old Johnston, his army will
all have a chance to go home and sec their
relations." " But the General says
you'uns dont fight fair. You shermines
keep a trouhlin' of him and showin" of
him in front, and your hookers keep a
runnin' onto his end with your JlinJters."
" Good evening /linkers," said Buckeye,
and away he went, giving room for some
others more qnizzical and mischievous
than himself.
A Peace Speech. ? J. ii. Woodward,
a young man, resident of Ohio, and at one
time Adjutant of an Indiana regiment,
was called out at a recent peace meeting,
and reponded as follows : Gentlemen?
The great cry that 1 have heard to-day has
been peace, peace. I tell you that there is
no man in the nation who desires peace
more than I do ; a permanent, lasting
peace. (Cheers.) And gentlemen, I will
tell you how we will get it. Fight this
war out. Take every negro in the rebel
States, and exterminate every d? drebel,
no matter where you find him. (Hisses.)
Gentlemen, you need not try to hiss me
down, for I am an old soldier, and I have
faoed almost as mean a looking crowd as
is now before me. I mean the thieves and
bushwhackers of Tennessee. I know I
was called upon to make a speech out of
derision, and I intend to tell you what I
think of you. When God said he would
save Sodom, if ten righteous men could be
found there, I have no doubt he would
have done it ; and, to-day, if you all stood
upon the brink of bell, and he were to say
he would save you if one loyal man could
be found among you, I have not the least
doubt but there would be a great many
strange faces in hell for supper. Gentle
men, when yon wish to hear from ma
again, you have only to call upon me. I
am always at home.
Test of Death. ? When fire is applied
to a living body a blister filled with liquid
is soon raised, and if the heat be contin
ued, the epidermis ia destroyed. But
when the same heat is applied to a dead
body, the epidermis rises in the form of a
blister, which . is filled with vapor, and
which presently bursts. The test has been
proposed by M. Martin de Courdoux, to
ascertain if a person be really dead before
the burial. In performing the test the
author recommends a small flame, such as
the flame of a match, to be applied for a
short time at about half a centimetre from
the skin.
Jones and. Brown were talking of a
I young clergyman, whose preaching they
j had heard that day. The sermon was
very poor. " What do you think of

Jones, "he did much better two years
ago." " Why, he didn't preach at all
then," said Brown. " True," replied
Jones ; " that is what I mean."

The following is a complete and correct
abstract of the Constitution of the State of
Nevada, adopted on the seventh day of Sep
tember. It is greatly condensed, occupying
but a fraotion of the room required for the
publication of the whole document, but will
be found equally useful and far more con
venient for reference :
Preceding the Constitution proper is a rendu
tion adopting the Constitution of the United
states and au ordinance forever prohibiting ?la*
very, securing perfect religious toleration, dis
claiming forever all right and title to unappropri
ated public lands, which are left to the sole din
posit iou of the United State*; exempting from
taxation all lands and other property of the Uni
ted States, and declaring that land*' of non-resi
dent* shall not be taxed higher than land* of cltl
senn of the proposed stato. These enactments are
made in compliance with the terms of the Ena
bling Act, and are declared irrevocable without
the consent of the United 8tutex and of the people
of tbo State of Nevada.
The preamble to the Constitution is the same
as that of the old Constitution. It reads thus:
" We, the people of the State of Nevada, grate
ful io Almighty God for our freedom, in order to
seen re its blowing*, insure domestic tranquility
and form a more perfect Government, do estab
lish this Constitution."
Section 1 declare* all men by nature tree and
equal, postering certain inalienable rights, etc.,
the language ot the section being merely an am
pGticatkm of the Declaration of Independence.
?S;ccion 0 averts that the doctrine of the inhe
rent political power of the people, and their right
to establish or change their form of Government,
and continues: "But tho paramount allegiance
of every citizen la due to the Federal Govern
ment, in the exercise of all its constitutional pow
ers.uB the same have been or may be defined by
the Supreme Court of the United Statei ?, and no
power exists iu the people of this or any other
state of the Federal Union to dissolve their con
nection therewith, or perform any act tending to
impair, subvert or resist the supremo authority
of the Government of the United States. The
Con?titution of the United States confers full
power on the Federal Government to maintain
and perpetuate its existence, and whensoever any
portion of the States, or people thereof, attempt
to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly re
sist tho execution of its lawn, the Federal Gov
ernment may, by warrant of tho Constitution,
employ armed force in ''ompelling obedience to
it* authority."
Section a establishes the right of trial by jury,
but provides that three-fourth* of a jury iu any
civil case may lind a verdict unless the LegiBla
ture by a two-thirds vote shall require such ver
dicts to be unanimous.
Section 4 requires perfect religious tole*"ition
and freedom of con*cicuce. No person to be ex
cluded as u witnehs on nccount of religions opin*
lens. /_
.Section 5 secures tho writ of habeas corpus,
except in cane* of rebellion or invasion.
Section 6 prohibits oxcesfiive bail, cruel or un
usual punishments, etc
Section 7 requires that all persons accused shall
l>e bailable, except for capital offenses.
Section 8 prohibits trials for crime except on
presentment or indictmenl, nod establishes tho
usual aafcg uards as to personal and property right*.
Section I) secures the freedom of speech and of
the pre an, and allows the truth to be given in ev
idence, in Actions for libel, by way of justification.
Section 10 establishes the right of the people to
hold public meetings, etc.
Section 11 subordinates the military to the civil
power, prohibits a standing army in time of peace,
and limits army appropriations in time of war to
two years.
Section 10 forbids the billeting of ?oldier?.
Section 13. Representation shall bo apportioned
according to population.
Section 14 requires the exemption of a reasonable
amount of property from execution for debt, and
forbids imprisonment for debt, " except in case of
fraud, libel or slander. "
Section 15 forbids the passage of any bill of at
tainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the
obligation of contracts.
Section lt? secures to foreigners, on becoming
bona fide residents, the same property rights as
native-born citizen?.
Sectiou 1? prohibits slavery.
Section IK protects the peopie aguinst unreas
onable searches and seizures, and restrict* the is
suing of search warrants.
Section 19 defines treason against the State (as
in the United States Constitution), and requires
for conviction " the testimony of two witqesnes
to tho suum overt act, or confession in open Court."
Section 'JO reserves to tho people any und all
rights not enumerated.
The moM considerable change from the old
Constitution in this Article is in the " paramount
allegiance*' clause of Section 2, which in the old
Constitution read thus : " Bnt the paramount al
legiance of every citizen is duo to the Federal
Government ; and no power exists in tho people
of this or any other State in the Federal Union to
dixMjlve their connection therewith, or perform
any act tendiug to impair, subvert or resist the
supreme authority of the Government of the
United States. The Conntitutlon of the United
Mates confers ftill power ou the Federal Govern
ment to maintain and perpetuate its existence,
and whensoever any portion of the States, or peo
ple thereof, attempt to secede from the Federal
Uniou, or forcibly resist the execution of Its laws,
the Federal Government may, by warrant of tho
Constitution, employ armed force in compelling
obedience to its authority."
Section 11 of the old Constitution, prohibiting
the Legislature from granting special privileges,
etc., was stricken out, as beiug sufficiently provi
ded ioj in the article on Legislative Department.
The words "libel or slander" were inserted
in Section 14, relative to imprisonment for debt,
on account of the adoption of striugent provi
sions for the prevention and punishment ofduelllng
The provision in Section 19, relative to con-,
victions of treason, was not contained in the old
Section 1 confers the right of suffrage on every
while male citizen ot the United atateH, twenty
one years ol ago and upward*, " who shall have
actually and not constructively resided in the
State nix mohths, and iu the district or county
thirty days next preceding any election pro
vides that no person convicted of treason or felony
in any State or Territory of the United States,
unless restored to civil rights, and no person who,
after arriving at the age of eighteen years, shall
have voluntarily borne arm* against the United
States or held "civil or military office under the
so-called Confederate States, or either of them,
unless an amnesty be granted to such by the
Federal Government, and no idiot or Insane per
son, shall be entitled to the privilege of an elector.
Section 2 provides that no person shall be
deemed to have gained or lost residence for the
purpose of voting while in the service of the
United States, while a student in any seminary of
learning, nor while kept in any almshouse, asy
lum or prison at the public expense.
Soction 3 secures the right of suffrage to United
States soldiers and sailors. No poll uu or regis
tration is required of such voters.
Section 4 prohibits arrests on civil process on
election days.
action 5 provWes that all elections by the peo
ple shall be by ballot, and by the Legislature I
viva voce.
Section 6 requires the enactment of a registry
law, and authorizes the Legislature to prescribe
rules or oaths as tests of electoral qtfhlificatfon!
Section 7 requires the levying of an annual poll
tax of from two to four dollars, on ull male resi
dents between the ages of twenty-one and sixty
years of age, uncivilized American I diaas ex
cepted, one-half to go for State and one-half for
county purposes. The payment of such tax may,
in the discretion of the Legislature, be made a
condition to the right of voting.
Section d relates to the qualifications of voters
on the adoption or rejection of this Constitution.
In Section 1 the words "actually and not con
structively" were not in the old Constitution.? 1
They were inserted to prevent the possibility of
reckoning the residence or the voter from the
time he leaves some other fctate or county to
come to Nevada. Iu the last paragraph of the
sec lion, after "Idiot or insane," the words "or
disloyal person" occurred in the old Constitution.
These were stricken out on the ground of vague
ness and uncertainty, and because tho preceding
part of tho proviso was alleged to cover the
ground sufficiently.
The provision in Section C regarding additional
oaths or tests of electoral qualifications wan not
contained, at least specifically, in the old Con
stitution. There are some other changes in the
Article, but relating mainly to phraseology and
article hi? distribution or powers.

Governor Is allowed five days during the session,
or ten days thereafter, within which to veto a

sions; permitting special legislation respecting
fees and salaries, and the interest on money;
