Permit grateful acknowledgements. I accept the posi tion with hesitation. I may commit errors, but hope you will remember those errors will be those of inexperience, and not of the heart.— Gentlemen, this is the most important meeting, of any kind, that ever assembled in this State.— I have been a voter for half a century, and in all that time the Democratic party has been the idol of my heart. For its principles I have suffered and lost. I have been incarcerated in bastiles, all York tried by mock courts, locked up in Nei State prisons, for adhering to the principles of the Democratic party, and carried on these old limbs the brand of a felon. It was the proudest hour of my life. Gentlemen, to-day will be brought before you questions calculated to pro duce excitement, but I beg you, I implore you to be calm, nnd do away with all excitement, to indulge in no personalities or bitternesses, but, for the sake of your party conduct yourselves with coolness and dignity. Let the principles of our party govern us this afternoon, and in all our future lives. Ichabod has been written our banners ; tyranny 1ms laid us low, but at last there is a spark kindled on our desolate altars. Let us rally as men, as one man. Let no one of us say, 1 am for Paul, or I for Apollos, or 1 for Cephas, but let all rally and press to the sup port of our standard, until victory shall perch anew upon our banners.
