The Pres ident this afternoon sent the follow lnr messnge to the two houses of Con gress : . To the Senate and Ibiuac of Hepre aentalivcs i Experience has illustrated the wis dom of the framers of the Federal Constitution under all circumstances. The result of their labors was as near approximation to perfection as was compatible with the fallibility of men. Tho estimation in which the Constitution has ever been held by our countrymen, it is not surprising that any proposition for its alteration or amendment should be received with reluctance and distrust. Whilst this sentiment deserves commenda tion and encouragement as a useful preventive of unnecessary attompts to charge its provisions, it must be conceded that time has developed imperfections and omissions in the Coustitution the reformation of which has been demanded by the best inter est of the country. Some of thee have been remedied in the manner prescribed in the Constitution. There ar others which, although heretofore brought to the attention of the people have never been so presented as to enable the popular judgment to de termine whether they should be cor rected by means of additional amend ments. My object in this communi cation is to suggest certain defects in the Constitution, and to recommend that the judgment of tho people be taken on the amendment proposed. ' The first of the defect to which I desire to caJl attention is, that clause of the Constitution which provices for the election of President and Vice President through the Intervention of electors, and not by an immediate vote of the people. The importance of so amending this olause so as to secure the election of President and Vice President by their direct votes, was urged with great earnestness and ability by President Jackson in his gist annual Message, and tho recom mendation was repeated in five of his subsequent communications to Con gress, extending through eight years of his administration. In hia Mess age of 1829, he said : To the people belongs the right of electing their Chief Magistrate, It was never de signed that their choice should in any way be defeated, either by the inter vention ot Electoral Colleges, or by any agency eonfided under certain contingencies to the House of Repre sentatives, the most important of which was that the choice of a clear majority of the people might be easi ly defeated. He closed the argument with the following recommendation : "I would, therefore, recommend such an Amendment of the Constitution as may remove ail the intermediate agency in the election of a President and Vice President. The mode may be so regulated as to preserve to each State its present relative weight in the election, and a failure in tho first attempt may be provided for by con firming second to a choice between the two highest candidates. In con nection with such an amendment, it would seem advisable to limit the ervice of the Chief Magistrate to a single term of either four or six years. If, however, it should not be adopted. it la worthy of consideration whether a provision disqualifying for office the Representatives in Congress.on whom such an election may have devolved, would not be proper." Although this recommendation was repeated with undiminished earnest nesa in several ol his succeeding mes sages, the proposed amendment was not submitted to the people by Con gress, lhe danger of a defeat of the people's cholca in an election by the House of Representatives remains unprovided for in the Constitution, & would be greatly increased if the House of Representatives should as sume the power arbitrarily to reject the vote of a State which might not be cast In conformity to the wishes of a majority of thai. body. But if Pres ident Jackson failed to secure the amendment to the Constitution which he urged so persistently.his argument contributed largely to the formation of petty organizations which have continually avoided the contingency of an election by the House of Rep resentatives. These organizations. nrst by the resort to the caucus sys tem of nominating candidates, and afterwards to State and National con ventions, have Deen successful in so limiting the number of candidates as to escape the danger of an election 'by the House of Representatives. It is clear, however, that in thus limiting the number of candidates, tho true object and spirit' of the Constitution has been avoided and defeated. it is an essential reaturo m our re publican form of government, that every citiscn possessing constitutional qualifications, has a right to become a candidate for the office of President or Vice President, and that every qualified elector has a right to cast his vote for any citizen whom he may regard as fit for office. , But under party organization, which have pre vailed for years, these essential rights of the people have been as effectually cut off and destroyed as if tho ' Con stitution had prohibited their exer cise.. The danger of a, defeat of pop ular., choice in an election by the House of Representrtives Is not grea: ter than an election made nominally by the people themselves, when by the laws of party organizations ,and by constitutional provisions requiring the people to vote for electors In stead of for President and Vice Pres ident, it is made impracticable tor any citizen' to be k candidate, except through the press of party ;nomina tion, and for any . voter, to. . cast,. his, suffrage for Roy. other person than one thus brought forward through the manipulations of a nominating Con- ention. It is thus apparent that by means or party organizations thf.t provision of the Constitution which requires the election of President and Vice President to be made through the Electoral College has been made nstrumental and .. potential . in des troying the great-object of conferring the choice of these officers upon the people. It may be conceded that par ty organizations are inseparable from Republican government, A that when formed and managed in subordination to the Constitution they may be val uable safeguards of popular liberties, but when they are perverted to pur poses of bad ambition, they are liable to become the dangerous Instruments of overthrowing the Constitution Itself. Strongly impressed with these views, I reel called upon by an imper ative sense of duty to review sub- stantiallv the recommendation so of ten and earnestly maae by President Jackson, and urge the amendment to the Constitution herew ith presented; or some wmilar proposition maybe submitted to the people lor their rati fication or rejection. Rucent events have shown the necessity of an amendment to the Constitution dis tinctly defining the persons who shall discharge the duties ot President oi the United States in the event of a vacancy in that office by death, res ignation or removal of both Presi dent and Vice President. It is clear that this should be fixed by the Con stitution, and not left to a repealable enactment of doubtful constitution ality. - It occurs to me that iu the event of a vacancy in the office of President by death, resignation disa bility or removal of both President and Vice President, the duties of the office should devolve upon an officer of the executive department of the government, rather than upon one connected with either of the legisla tive or the judiciary departments. The objections to designating either President pro tern of the Senate or the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, especially in the event of a vacancy produced by removal, are aa obvious and so Unreasonable, that they nood not be stated in detail. It is enough to state that they are both interested in producing a vacancy.and according to the provisions of the Constitution, are members of a tribu nal by whose decree a vacancy may be produced under such circumstan ces. The impropriety of designating either of these officers to succeed the President so removed is palpable. The framers of the Constitution.when they referred to Bongress the settle ment of the succession to the office of both President and Vice President. did not, in my opinion, contemplate the degignation of any other than the officer of the executive department, on whom, in such a contingency, tho powers and duties of the President should devolve. Until recently the contingency ha3 been remote, and serious attention has not been . calle I to the manifest congruity between the provision of the Constitution on this subject and the act of Congress of 179: Having, however, been brought lace to face with the question, it seems an eminently proper time for us to make the legislation conform to the lan guage, intent and theory of the Con stitution, and thus place the Execu tive Department beyond the reach of usurpation, and remove from the Legislative and Judicial Departments every temptation to combine for the absorption of all the power of gov ernment. It has occurred ta me that in an event of such vacancy, the duties of .... TtJt ,,.,',... tut; xr rtretueiu i. wuuiu uctuuc mint ap propriately on some one of the heads of the several Executive Departments, and under this conviction I present to your consideration an amendment to the Constitution on ' this subject, with the recommendation that it be submitted to the people for their ac tion. Experience seems to have es tablished the necessity of an amend ment of that clause of the Consti tution which proyides for tho election of Senators to Congress by the. Legis latures of the several States. It would be moro consistent with the genius of our form of Government, if the Senators were chosen directly by the people of the several States. The objection to the election of Senators by the Legislature are so palpable that I deem it unnecessary to do more than eubmit the proposition for such an amendment, with the recommenda tion that it be referred to the people for their judgment. IT is strongly impressed on my mind that the tenure of office by the Judiciary of theUauWl States during good behavior or during life, is In compatible with the spirit of Repub lican government, and in this opin ion I am fully sustained by tho evi dences of popular judgment on this subject in the different States. I there fore deem it my duty to recommend an amendment to the Constitution by which the terms of the Judicial offi cers would be limited to a period of years, and I hereby present it in the hope thatJCongrefls will submit it to the people for their decision. - ' : - The foregoing views have long been entertained by me. In 1845, in the House of Representatives, and after' wards in 1SC0, In the Senate of the United States, I submitted substanti ally the same propositions as those to which the , attention of Congress is herein Invited. Time,'', observation and experience' have confirmed this conviction, and as a matter of publio duty, and with a ueep sense ot my constitutional .obligations to recom mend to tho consideration of Con gress such measures as I deejn neces sary and expedient, I submit the ac companying- propositions, and urge their adoption and submission to the Judgment of the people. .

Letter of General Blair the Democratic Nomination for the Vice-Presidency. -riug The following is a copy of General Blair's letter of acceptance of the Democratic nomination for Vice-President. It is a most able document : General tteorRc W. Margin, Chairman of the Com mittee ef the National Deinocrtttic Convention: General: I take the earliest op portunity of replying to your letterno tifying mtj of my nomination for Vice President of the United States by the Democratic Convention recently held in the City of New York. I accept without hesitation the nom ination tendered in a manner so grat-. ifying, and give you and the Commit tee my thanks for the very kind and complimentary language in which you have conveyed to me the decision of the Convention. I have carefully read the resolutions adopted by the Convention, and most cordially concur in every principle and sentiment they announce. My opinion upon all the questions which discriminate the great contend- ng parties have been freely expressed on all suitable occasions, and I do not deem it uece-.sary at this time to reit erate them. The issues upon which the contest turns are clear and cannot be ob jured or distorted by the sophistries Of our adversaries. .They all resolve themselves into the old and ever re curring struggle of a few men to ab sorb the political power of the nation. This effort undrr every conceivable naine and disguise has always char acterized the opponents of the Demo cratic party, but at no time has the attempt assumed a phase so open and daring as in this contest. The adver saries of free and. constitutional Gov ernment, in defiance 0f the express language of the Constitution, have erected a military despotism in ten of the States of the Union, have taken from the President the power vested ri him by the supreme law, and have deprived the Supreme Court of its urisdiction. The right of. trial by jury, and the great writ of right, the the habeas corpus shields of safety for every citizen, which hav descended to us from the earliest traditions of our ancestors, and which our revolu tionary fathers sought to secure to their posterity forever in the - funda mental charter of our liberties have been ruthlessly trampled under foot by the fragment of a Congress; whole States and coinn. unities of people of our race have been attainted, convic ted, condemned, and deprived of their rights as citizens, without preaent- ment or trial or witnesses, but by Con gressionil enactment of ex post facto laws, and in defiance of the constitu tional prohibition, denying even to a full and loyal Congress the authority to pass any bill of attainder or ex post facto law. The same usurping au thority has substituted as electors in place of the men of pur own race, thus illegally attainted and disfran chised, a host of ignorant negroes are supported in idleness with the public money, and are combined together to strip tne white race of their birth right through the management of Freedmen's bureaux and emissaries of conspirators in other States. - And to complete the oppression, the military power of the nation has been placed at their disposal in order to make this barbarism supreme. The military leader, under whose prestige this usurping Cotigress has taken refuge since the condemnation of their schemes by the free people of the North, in the elections of the last year, and whom they have selec ted as their candidate, to shield them selves lrom the result of their own wickedness and crime, has announced his acceptance of the nomination, and his willingness to maintain their usur pations over eight millions of white people at the South, fixed to the earth with his bayonet0. He exclaims Let us have peace :" "Peace' reigns in Warsaw," was the announcement which heralded the doom of the lib erties of a nation. "The" f mpira is peace,", exclaimed Bonaparte when fnedom and its defenders expired un der the sharp edge of his sword. The peace to which Grant invites us is the peace of despotism and death. Those who seek to restore the Constitution by executing the will of the people condemning the reconstruction acts, already pronounced in the elections. of last year (and which will, I am con vinced, be still more emphatically ex pressed by the election of the Demo cratic candidate as President of the United States)are denounced as revo lutionists by the partisans of this vin dictive Congress. Negro suffrage (which the popular vote of New York New Jersey, ' Pennsylvania, Ohio Michigan, Connecticut, and other States has condemned' as expressly against the letter of the Constitution) must stand, because their Senators and Representatives have willed it. If the people shall again condemn these atrocious measures by the elec tion of the Democratic candidate for President, they must not be dist urbed Although decided to be unconstitu tional by the Supreme Court, and al thongh the ' President is sworn to maintain and support the Condtltu tion, the will of a fraction of a Con gress, reinforced with iis partisan em issaries sent to the South, and sup ported there by the soldiery, must tand against the will of the peopl aud the . decisions of the Supreme Court aud . the solemn, path of the President to maintain and support the Constitution ! it is revolutionary to execute .the will of the peoplol It Is revolutionary to, execute . the judg ment of the supreme, court: it is revolutionary in the President to keep inviolate his path, to sustain the Con stitutloq ! This false . construction the' vital principle of our Government is thedastreaort ot those who would have their arbitrary reconstruction sway and supersede our time-honored institutions. The country, will say that the Constitution must be restored ahd the will of the people again pre vail. The appeal to the peaceful bal lot to attain this end is not war not revolution. They make waf and revolution who attempt to arrest this quiet mode of putting aside military despotism and the usurpations of a fragment of a Congress asserting ab solute power over that benign system of regulated liberty left us by our fa thers. This must be allowed to take its course. THIS IS THE ONLY ROD TO PEACE. IT WILL COME WITH THE ELECTION OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE AND NOT WITH TH K ELECTION OF THAT Iii AILED WARRIOR WHOSE BAYONETS ARE NOW T THE THROATS OF. EIGHT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH, TO COMPEL THEM TO SUPPORT HIM AS A CANDI DATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY, AND TO SUBMIT TO THE DOMI NATION OF AN A LIEN RACE OF SEMI-BARBAROUS MEN. NO PERVERSION OF TRUTH OR AUDACITY OF MISREPRE SEN T A T I O N CAN E X C E E D THAT which II AILS THIS CAN DIDATE IN ARMS AS AN AN GEL OF PEACE. I am, very respectfully, FRANK P. BLAIR. [From the Cincinnati Enquirer.] ADAMS EXPRESS ROBBERY. The Robbers Lynched—History of the Case. Jackson and adjoining counties in Indiana, for several years past, has been the home and rendezvous of as desperate a gang of robbers and mur derers as has ever been known. Life & prosperty have become unsafe. But a few nights ago a respectable mer chant ol Seymour, Jackson County, had his horse shot uader him while going home and himself barely es caped his life. It will be recollected, also, that in those counties the Adams Express Company has been repeated- robbed by men getting on board of the train and overpowering .the messengers, and by taking possession of the engine and express car and running them off from tho train, and then leaving them after rifling them of their treasures. A robbery of this kind occurred, also, on the Cincinna ti, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad, when the American Express Compa ny was robbed of a large amount. All these robberies have emanated from the same source. A family named Reno, living at Rockford, two miles from Seymour, have been the leaders or instigators of the 'whole of these daring outrages. They arc also the parties who led the raid in Iowa last spring, when ho many county safes were robbed. On the 22d of May last the Adams Express Company's car was robbed about eighteen miles from Seymour, on the line of the Jefferson viile, Mad ison and Indianapolis Railroad. This robbery was done by ihe Ren s and their Irieuds, some of whom are now in Canada to avoid capture, and oth ers aro under arrest for this outrage On the 10th instant, the Adams Ex press was again attempted to be rob bed, on the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, about thirteen miles west of Seymour. The armed guards of the Company, however, repulsed the rob hers, captured one and wounded some of the others, two of whom have since been captured, and for the re mainder a large reward has been of fered for their delivery to the author lties. James olney LUitz was one of this gang, and was captured on the night of the attempted robbery. Chas. Roseburg, a resident of Sey mour, and a pupil of Uie Renos, was afterward arrested by the citizens of Seymour, who turned out en masse. Frail Clifton was also arrestett. They all owned up to their connection with the affair, and also the attempt to kill the guards. . For safe keeping they were brought to Cincinnati for a short time, when warrants were procured and they were put on the train of the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad bound for Brownstown, the county seat of Jack son County, Indiana on the evening of the 20th inatant; 1 ut on the arri val of the train, two or three miles west of Seymour, it was stopped by a large body of armed men, the guard in charge of the prisoners being overpowered. LYNCHING OF THE PRISONERS. is During the trip from this city,noth- ing of interest occurred until the train approached Seymour. Three miles out of that place it was met by a crowd of intensely exeUed .citizens, heavily armed, breathing vengeance against the prisoners, and demanding immediate and summary punisnmen t upon them. The subterfuge resorted to by the mob was the exhibition of a signal of distress a red light upon the track, upon seeing which the engineer whis tled down brakes. " No sooner had the train ccme to a stand-still, than the bulk of the so-called A'igilnnce Com mitteewho were concealed in a thick et near by, boarded and took posses sion of the train, overpowered the guards, and removed the prisoners to terra firma. The poor wretches too fully compre hended what was to be done. Five minutes were given them in which to prepare for death, while the execu tioners with a gi im earnestness placed the fatal noose about their necks. , They at firot bejrgeu lor mercy, hut finding it in vain, they concluded to make a eonfesslon.and while standing with the noose around their necks, the unfortunate men confessed to the whole affair, and also admitted their knowledge of the celebrated Marsh field robbery .committed some months ago on the Louisville and Inhianapo lis Railroad, each blaming the other tvo, and denying any personal con nection "with the same. For the purpose of receiving ' this teonfessii n, the time was extended to half an hour, at the end'of which the ropes were drawn, ana these wretched despevadoes, covered with crime, were launched Into eternity. The crowd then dispersed, after the writhing bodies had stiffened in the chilling embrace of the King of Ter rors, and yesterday morning they were seen dangling from the branches of a giant of the forest, their faces horribly contorted and 'purple, and their glaring eyes protruding from their sockets a frightful warning to the remainder of tho band which in fests that locality, more e.-pecially those who are pursued and likely to be captured. - It is uot to be wondered at that the people of Jackson County have felt themselves conipelleii, iu self-preservation, to resort to this. Justice in the courts was a failure, owing to the many technicalities of the law; and the fact that these men have had their hiding and abiding-place in thnt county,and have outraged and defined all law, bus driven the people tt) the last resort of taking the law into their own hand.-;. LYNCHING OF THE PRISONERS. THE CAMPAIGN TO BE PROSECUTED. The Vigilaivjo Committee of Sey mour Gt-tcrinined to t arry a war ol extermination against the whole community of thieves that there do congrf-gdte, has given publicity to the following proclamation, which speaks for itself: ATTENTION, THIEVES. The attention of all thieves. robbers assassins, and vagrants, together with filter alders, abettors, and sympathi zers, is called to the doings of the Si-yniour Vigilance Committee last night. We are determined to follow this t;p until all ol the classes above nam ed, whether imported, or to the manor born," are driven forever from our midst. Threats have been made of retalia tion in case we should resort to capi tal punishment. In answer, we say : Should one of our committee be harmed, or a dollar's worth ot prop erty of any honest man be destroyed, ' by persons unit no wn, we will swing by the neck, until they be dead, every thieving character we can lay our hands on, without inquiring whether we have the persons who committed that particular crime or not. This ap plies not only to Seymour, but along the lime of the two roads, and wher ever our organization exists. Imw & order must prevail. BY ORDER OF COMMITTEE. SEYMOUR. IND., July 21, 1868. Judging from the spirit manifested by the Committee, the thieves and robbers of that vicinity will take up the line of their march to a more con genial locality. "Time at last sets all things even." i Trouble in the Wigwam. Old Thad. Stevens, the incarnation of Radicalism, tho authorized mouth piece and exponent of the Republi can party, flings "greenbacks fcr bonds" in the teeth of his lamb-like followers, who have bawled them selves hoarse crying repudiation against all who favored tho doctrine lie states the case as it is, for he had a hand in making the law, yet the De mocracy have beon denounced as worse than traitors, for insisting upon the contract. Stevens said in Con gress on Friday last : Mr. Stevens What was the law? That the interest should bo paid up to a certain time at six per cent, in coin. After the bonds fell due they would be payable in money just as the gentleman from Illinois under stood it: mst as he (Mr. Stevens) un derstood it; justas i he well understood it when the law was enacted ; just as it was explained on the floor a dozen times by the Chairman of the Com mittee on Ways and Means. If ho knew that any party in the country would go for paying in coin that which was payable in money, thus enhancing the debt one-hall; if he knew there was such a platform and such a determination on the part of his own party he would, with Frank Blair and all,vote for the other party. lie would vote for no such swindle on the taxpayers of the country. He would vote for no such speculation in favor of the large bondholders and millionairs. He repeated though it was hard . to say it even if Frank Blair stood on the platform of paying according to the contract, and if the Republican candidate stood on the platform of paying the bloated specu lators twice tho amount agreed to be 2aid them, and of taxing his constit uents to death, lio would vote for Frank Blair, even if a worse man than Seymour was on the ticket, Much excitement and sensation. HON. J. it. irioi.itti.k in answer ing somesympathetic friends in Penn sylvania, concludes as follows, which sets at rest the rumor that he was not n favor of the Democratic nomina tions : I cannot hesitate for one moment. My judgment is for it ; my whole heart is in it. So far from relaxing, we should redouble our efforts. Bear In mind that the war was ended three years ago, when a new era was open ed in political affairs ; that Mr. Sey mour is a man of high character, of unquestioned patriotism, of great ability and experience, wholly with us upon the living and paramount issue: and that, if elected, he will make a most able and dignified Pres ldent;and certainly no Pcnnsylvanian will forget that, but for his prompt ness and energy in forwarding the forces of New York to Gettysburg, that great battle might have been lost and Pennsylvania overrun. While in General Blair, we have civilian and a soldier, whose prompt ness and indomitable resolution seized Camp Jackson, and saved Missouri from secession ; who always stood among the foremost of tho war Re publicans, in council and in the field while tho war lasttd ; and, when was over, was among the first to. de manu. mat ior which the war was prosecuted the Union of the States under tho Constitution, with their rights, equality, and dignity unim paired. Let us unite for a victory ! Let ns have peace a peace which conies uot from a violated Constitution and the despotism of the sword, but a peace which comes from a restored Union and the supremacy of constitutional la w.by which alone liberty is secured.

Tim immediate restoration of all ' the Slates to their rights in the Union under the Constitution, und of civil government to i Hie American people. j Second. Amnesty for u!l past political of fences and the regulation of the elective,.! franchise in the S'ates by their citizens. ! Third. Tim payment of the public debt . I of the United Slates as sm as practicable: ; and that all moneys drawn from the people by taxation, except so much as is requisite for the necessities of tho Government eco- i noniically administered, ha honestly applied ( to such payment : and where the obligations of the Government do not expressly state upon their face, or the law under which they were issued does not provide that they ,' shall be paid in coin, they ought, in right nnd in justice, to be paid iu tho lawful i money of the United Slates. In demanding these measures and reforms we arraign lhe radical party for its disregard of right and the unparalleled oppression and f tyranny which have marked its career. Af- ; ter a most solemn and unanimous pledge of both Houses of Oonreps to prosecute the ! war e tolusively for the maintenance of the j Government and the preservation of tha Union under the Constitution, it has repeat- 1 cdly violated the most sacred pledges under which alone rallied that noble volunteer j army which carried our flag to victory : in- ! stead of restoring the Union it lias so far as V ' in its power dissolved it and subjected ten ' States in time of profound peace to military despotism and negro supremacy ; lias strip ped the President of his constitutional power of appointment even of his own Cabinet. ' ; Under its repeated assaults the pillars of the Government arc rocking on their bane, and should it succeed in November next to in augurate its President, we will meet as a subjugated and conquered people amid the rums of liberty and the scattered fragmeuts of the Constitution. Jiexotved, That in the future as in the . past, we will adhere with unswerving fidel ity to the Union under the Constitution as the only solid foundation of our strength, security and happiness as a people, and as a frame work of government equally condu cive to the welfare and prosperity of all Uie States, both Northern and Southern. lieiOlveiL That tho L nion established by the Constitution Is a Union of States, Fed eral in its character, composed of Slates thereby united, and is incapable of existing without the States as its continuing !ntegral parts, and therefore the perpetuity of the Union in its integrity depentls on the pres ervation of the States in their political in. tegrity, the Government of the United States being a Federal Republic and not a consoli dation of the whole people in one nation. Hesolved, uhat the perpetuity of . the Union aud the maintenance of the Govern ment, aj both were established by the Con stitution aud as both under the Constitution have been expounded in tho foregoing resc lutions in conformity wiih the venerable teachings of Jefferson, Madison and Jack- . son, have ever been held ascardiual doctrms of the Democratic ifarty, aud they are now reiterated with increased earnestness, under the solemn convicUon that constitutional liberty can be preserved on this continent only by bringing back tho administration of the Government to those lime liouoreu pnn-. ciples on which for sixty years there was such unparalleled happiness and prosperity, aud in rescuing it from the hands of those who have ever held the Constitution itself to be no better than a covenant with death and an agreement with hell ; whoso revolution ary policy and measures have brought such general discord, strilc ana war, with its at- teudent ills upon a large porl'oa of th country, aud 6uch wide spread demomliza. tion throughout the whole of it. Ilesolccd, That the Democratic party in sustaining the Federal administration in the late unhappy conflict of arms did so in good faith, wilh the hope aud earnest wish to maintain the principles above set lorth, ana with no -iew of waging war on the part of the Northern States in any spirit of oppres sion against their brethren of the South, nor for any purpose of conquest or subjugation, nor puipose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of those States, but to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution, and to pre serve the Union with all the dignity, equality aud rights of the several States unimpaired. The subjugation of these States or hold in j; them as conquered, territory would be, ia the judgment of this Convention, Uie des truelion of the Union itself. ltesolved.
