Aa he had lost the greater part of hie fortnne, though he had secured a large amount1 about his person, be thought he would remain in that place for awhile, for it was the time when Australia waa first found to be a second land of gold.

Accordingly, just as the clergyman closed his eyes in prayer, he felt two sweet half dollars upon bis palms. The good man for a moment hesitated, appall ed at tho ludicrousnesa of his situation, but ccoly deposited the money in bia pocket, and proceeded with his devotions. . 17-Blili had a bright little fellow on the stand lo assist him in bia "experiments."

He who recklessly deluged the fertile plains of the fairest portion of our globe, with the blood of her slaughter ed sons, reste'd awhile on that barren spot, as one not lo be remembered.

Ktiolitd, That we regard this as a distinc tive feature of our political creed, which we are proud to maintain before the world, as the great moral element in a form of government springing frori andupheldby the popular will; and we con'.rlst it with the creed and practice 01 reueraiisra uncer whatever name or form, which seeks fo palsy the will of Ihe constitu ent, and which conceives no imposture ton monstrous for -the popular credu.iiy. neutatd, Vurejore, That, entertaining these views, the. Democratic parly of this Union, through theirBeleates assembled in a central Convention, ooming together in a spirit ot con cord, of devotion to the doctrines and faith of a .free representative government, and appealing 10 meiiieiiow-ciiizens ior me recuuue 01 their intentions, renew and reassert before the American people, the declaration of principles avowed by ihejm when, on former occasiona, in general Convention, they have presented their candidates for the popular suffrages. 1. that the federal uovernment is one of limited power, derived solely from the Con stitution; end the grants of power made therein ought to be attictly constrned by all the de partments and agents of the government; and thai it is inexpedient and dangerous to exer cise doubtful constitutional powers. i. that lha constitution does not confer upon the General Government the power to commence and carry on a general system of internal improvements. 3. That the Constitution does not confer au thority upon the Federal Government, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of the sever al States, contracted for local and internal im provements, or olherSlale purpot es: nor wou Id sucn assumption be just or expedient 4. J hat justice auJ sound policy forbid the Federal Government lo foster one branch ofin dustry to the detriment of any other, or lo clieri.h the interest of one nortior to the iniurv of another portion nfour common country; that every citizen and every section of the country nos a nprii to uemanu and insist upon an equality of rights and privilege?, and to com plete and ample prtoectioh of persona and properly from domestic violence or foreign ag gression. 6. That it is the duty ol every branch of the Government lo enforce and practice the most rigid economy in, conducting our public affairs, and that no more revenue ought to be raised than is renuired to defray the necessary expell ees of the Government; and for the gradual, but certain extinction of the public deb). 6. That ihe ploceeds of the public lands ought to be sacie-lly snnlied to the nitional objects specified in the Constitution; and that w-e are opposed tb any law for the distribution rr such proceeds among the States, as alike iii- expedient in policy and repugnant to the Simmon 7. That Congress has no power to chorter a national bank; that we believe such an institu tion one of deadly hostility to the bebt interests or the country, dunperousio our republican in stitutions and Ihe liberties of the people, and calculated to place the business ol the country wilhiu Hie control of a Concentrated monev power, and above the laws and the will of the penplej and that the result of Democratic leg islaiion in. this and all other financial mens u res, upon which issues have been made be- tween the two poliiicol parlies of the country, have demonstrated to candid and practical men 01 an parties their soundness, safely, and ulll i'y.lri all bnsiue.-s pursuits. 8. That Ihe separation of the monevs of the Government from banking institutions is indis- pensaoie 10 the solely of the fundS'.f the Gov ernment, amj the rights of the people, . I hat we aie decidedly opposed lo taking 1 1 urn mo rreaiueai me qiiatined veto power by which ho is enabled, under relricliona and responsibilities amply sufficient lo guard the public interests, to suspend thu passage of bill whose merita cannot secure the approval of two-thirds of tbe Senate and House or Rep resentatives, until the judgement of the people cau ue ooianieu uiereou, and which has saved the American people from the corrupt and ly ranical domination of the Cank of United Mates, and Iroin a corrupting system of gener al internal imiirovemems. 10. Tliiitlhe liberal principles embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration oflndenendence. and sanoiiuned ij; theCoiislitulion which makes ours the land oflitierty, aud the asylum of the oppressed r.l every nation, have ever been car dinal principles in the Democratic faith, and every attempt to abridge the privilege of becom nig citizens and me owners or soil among us, ought to be resisted with Ihe same spirit which swept the alien and sedition lawa from our statute booka. And Whereas, Since the foregoing declara lion was uniformly adopted by our predecessors iu National Conventions, an adverse political and religious test has been secretly urbanized oy a puny claiming to be exclusively Ameri can, 11 u pioper dial the American Democracy should Clearly define its relations '.hereto, and declare ita determined opposition to all secret political societies, by whutever name they may be called.

IXRciohtd, That we reiterate, with renewed energy of purpose, the well-considered declar ations of former Conventions opon the section al issue of Domestio Slavery, and concerning the reserved rights of the States, 1. That Congresa has no power, under the Constitution, to interfere with or control 'be domestic institutions of the several Stales, and that such Slates are theaoleand proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by tba Couatitution; that ail ef forts of the abolitionists or others, made to induce Congresa (0 interfere with questions slavery, or to take incipient slept in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to tbe most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all anch c lions have an inevitable ten dency to diminish tbe happiness of the people, and endanger the stability and permanency the Union, and ought uot lo be countenanced a of of is by anv friend of our political institutions. iv2. That Ihe foregoing proposition covers, n& was frftenfled to embrace, the whole sub- rci 01 sinverv agna:ion in Uonsress; and Iherefoie, Ihe Democratic party of tho Union, standing on this national platform, will abide by and adhere to a faithful execution of the acts known as the Compromise measures, led by the Congress of 1850: Mhe act for re. claiming fugitive! from aervica or labor," in cluded; which act being designed lo cany out an express provision of the Constitution, ean noi, with fidelity thereto, be repealed, or so chanted aa to destroy or impair its efficiency. 3. Thai the Democratic party will resist all attempts at renewing, in Congresa ot out of it, the aei'ation of the atavery question under whatever shape or color the attempt may be made. 4. That the Democratic parly will faiiliTully abide by and uphold, the principles laid down in the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions of 1798, and in the report of Mr. Madiaon to Ihe Virginia Legislature, in 1799; that it adopts those principles as constituting one of the main founda'.ijns'of ita political creed, and is resolved to carry them cut in their obvious meaning and import. And that we may more distinctly meet the issue on which a sectional party, aubsiating exclusively on slavery agitation, now relies to test Ihe fidelity of the people, north and south, to the Constitution and tbe Union if I. Rtiohtd, That claiming fellowship with anil desiring me co-operation or all who regard the preservaiion of the Union under the Con stitution as the paramount issue and repu diating all sectional parties and platforms con cerning domestic alevery, which seek lo em broil the Slates and incite to treason and arm ed resistance to law in the Territories ; and whose avowed purposes, if consumated, must end in civil war and disunion the American Democracy recognire nnd adopt the prin ciples contained in the organic laws establish ing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska as embodying the only sound and safe solution of the "slavery question." upon- which the great national idea of the people of this whole country can repose in Un determined conser vatism of the Union Non-intesi-isence ar Conoiirss with Slatkev aisd TEaai-roar o w tiik District o Columbia. 2.

Reiolctd, That our geographical and polit ical position wiih reference lo the other States of this continent, noless than the interest of our conimeice and the developement of our growing power, requires that we should hold as sacred Ihe principlea involved in the Mon roe Doctrine: their bearing and import admit of no misconstruction; they should be applied with unbending rigidity. 3. Rttolvid, That the great highway which nature, as well as the assent of the States most immediately interested in Us maintain ance, has marked out for a free communica tion between Ihe Atlantic and Pacifiic Oceans, constitute one of the most important achievements realized by the spirits of modern times and the unconquerable energy of our people. That result should be secured by timely and efficient exertion of the control which we have the rifiht to claim over it, and no power on earth should be suffered to im pede or clog its progress by any interference with the relations it may suit our policy to es tablish between our government and the gov. einmeiits of the States within whose domin ions it lies. We can under no circumstance. surrender our preponderance in the adjustment 01 an quesiiona arising out ol it. 4. Retotved, That in view of so command ing an interest, the people of tho United States can not but sympathize with the efforts which are being made by the people of Cen tral America to regenerate that portion of the continent which covers the passage across tbe Inter ocean io isthmua. . 6.

The Castigation of Charles Sumner—How it is Regarded in Boston. Tbe Boston correspondent of the New York Herald, writing from Bo-dou, under daie ofMay 25, says: Sumner and Brooks are the topics row. I mentioned, in my lelterof the 23d, that tbe Legislature would act upon the matter on Sat unlay, but they wisely concluded to woit until more tletniled and authentic news ahould ar rive from Washington. Meanwhile, the publio feeling rather moderates. On Saturday an im- mense mass meeting was held at FantuilHall, wnien aiuerea very importantly from thai of the preceding evening at the Tremont Temple, being a collection of "politicians," instead of red-hol Abolitionists. You will find that it is called by most of the Boston papers a meeting of all parties. This is not true; it was a gath ering of members ol one family Whigs, Know-Nolhings, and Freesoilers. There was no Democrat on the platform, nor in.any prom inent place in Ihe hall; and although, from the reports, you might judge that iis tone waa fiercely denunciatory, it was, in truth, any thing but that. The Abolitionista were bitterly disappointed. Tbey expected fire-and-brim-sioue speeches, and got, instead, lukewarm phrases only. The fact is that, without justi fying the assault, people are beginning ta think that if Massachusetts representatives, will indulge in billingsgate they must expect violent consexiences. The speech is leing generally read, and its outrageous language commenced on. The excitement won't lasts week longer. The first flash from Cincinnati will kilt it, for Charles Sumner is not now, nor never can be, in the hearts of the people.. He has not tbe elements of greatness or popu larity in him, and he is neither great nor pop-' ular. Perhaps, aa you cannot possibly gather any correct idea of this meeting from the Boston papers, and as great capital will undonhif-iliw be made of it by the Abolition prints, its true) history may be acceptable to you. It was conceived by Mr. Hamilton Willie, a gentle man who, whatever may be bisaeiuimenls for the colored race collect.vely, has no more re gard for them personally than others about town. This Mr. Willi, look lbe responsibility of collecting a list of names calling for the meeting, which waa read on Friday night in Tremont Temple, By his exertions many of the apeakan wero induced to appear, and tl.a affair waa mainly owing to him. A numberof tbe officers of the meeting were cboaen without their consent, and one-third of the peraoai named aa Vice Presidents were notpieasnt. j, IT l hings are queerly connected.
