TREASURER 0 STATE, HORACE S. KNAPP, of Ashland. soman jdooi, P. VAN TRUMP, of Fairfield. BOARD 01 PUBLIC WORKS, JOHN H. HEATON, of Belmont. The Nominees of the Democratic State Convention. We insert in the appropriate pi ice in onr columns this morning tbe ticktt nominated by the Democracy of Ohio and other onf ervative men who co-operate with them in tbe present grand and all-absorbing contest for the various offices to be filled by eleotion of tbe people on the seoond Tuesday of October next. The nominee fcr Governor, Clihint L Val lasdiohab, ii well known throughout tbe State, and has been distinguished in the put tw.ieare aa the most shamefully abused and persecuted man within tbe limits oi Ohio. He has it is true, never been charged with impropri eties In his nrlfate life, nor with tbe least semblance of corruption in bis pub le career but in tbtse respects, is admitted by Ma hitter est opponents to be an honest and an i right man. Hie taleats are conceded to be 1 . Ligb order, and bis ability to defend hie petitions with reason and argument, is admitted by friend and foe. On all the old party issues of past times, Mr. Vallandiobam has occupied a con servative and consistent course, smineiitly be coming an upright and honest Democrat. Since the inception of our present troubles, whereby our country has become distracted and is bleed log at every pore, Mr. Vallandioha has held, and, on all proper occasions, has expressed the opinion that war was not tbe best course to compose our troubles, and in fact doubted wtether we conid crush tbe rebellion and reeloro the Union by force of arms. For thus expressing himself at Mount Vernon in a pnblio speech, and criticising tbe acts of the Federal AdminUtration, ai was the right of a freeman to do, be was, by order of General Boinsidi, arrested, tried by a military commis sion, found guilty, and sentenced to imprison ment during the war, which sentence was modified by President Lincoln for banishment beyond the lines pf our army. This Infamous and outrageooslSbnduct, in vio lation of Constitution,' law and all the safe guards of liberty, at onos aroused the Dimocrat io people of Ohio in his behalf, and they re solved to rebuke the outrage on personal liberty and civil rights, by tbe nomination of Mr. Vallandioham for Governor of Ohio, and to follow op this nomination by an election, thus making the rejected stone the head of the cor ner. Had the President of tbe United States and Gen. Boinsidi been in Columbus on yes terday, they could have seen the effeol that their violations of Constitution, of law and the rights of tbe cit'xen, In the arrest of Mr. Vallandiqham, has had on the true, sincere and pstrlotio Union men of Ohio. Every allusion to their odious military orders, and more odious conduct under them, met with the most contemptuous response from the people; who felt that by them all that was dear to freemen was put in jeopardy. The nomination of Mr. Vallandioham was designed by the Convention, and does pnt to the people of Ohio the square Issue, whether we live nnder a government of law, in which freedom of opin ion and the right to criticise tbe civil or mili tary oonduot of onr servants is tolerated, or, instead thereof, whether Mr. Lincoln is a das- pot, and his subordinates his instruments with power to crash out tbe last vestige of personal liberty. All who are for a despotism should vote against Mr. Vallandiobam all In favor of free speeoh, a free press, trial by jury, habtat seraa andali the safeguards of liberty wbloh our fathers transmitted and banded down to us, should vote for Mr. Vallandioham. The nominee for Lieutenant Governor, Gxo. E. Ppoh, Is a gentleman in relation to whom It wonld be an aot of supererogation in ns to make any extended remarks. His talents are admitted by all, both friend and opponent. In this respect he is tbe peer of any man in Ohio. A lawyer of unsurpassed ability, a statesman ol conceded merit, and an honeet man, his nomi nation will be received with the most hearty approval by all tbe troo friends of the Union and the Constitution in the State of Oblo. He will be a host In the contest before us, and his clarion voice will rally the friends of liberty from hill and valley, town and country, to no tion bold, fearless sctlon In tbe great struggle in which we are now engaged, and in which our chief object la to save our bleedlug country from the peril In wbloh it is involved. William Hois aid, of Logan county, the nom inee for Auditor of State, is tbe present able and fearless editor of lbs Logan County Qaxettt. AS a political writer be has attained a bigh rank, and is regarded as one of the best news paper men in tbe State. His capacity is un doubted, and bit integrity baa never been ques tioned. In his hands that very important branch of the State Government ecoond to no other- would be in safe custody, and the business of the State wonld be faithfully and honorably attend edto. ' - : i '. ! Horace S. Bjurr.of Ashland oonnty, is well and favorably known to a very nnmeroos elats of tbe electors of the State. Heretofore a can didate for nomination for Treasurer of Stale with ardent friends, hut uasuooetsful, be now receives the diatlnotionover some excellent and honorable rivals. Mr. Knah is a dote and sound thicker, a reliable Constitutional Demo crat, a good business man, with all the pre-re-qnlsites to make a good Treasurer of State. Hon. P. Van Tiumt, of Fairfield coouty, the present Common Fleas Judge in t .at Dktrict, is onr nominee for Snprems Judge, He is a good Uwjer and a good man, with the qnalln- oatlooaiD mike an upright. Intelligent and hon est Judge. ' The opinion delivered by him In the oaie of the Stat of Oblo f. David Tod.li a document whloh oommandi the admiration of all men who respect and reverence an honest, upright and independent Judiolary. In Judge Van TirjtfF they have snob a man, and in these times know well how to cherish him. For member of tbe Board of Ptcbllo Works, the Convention tomlnated Joan H. Heaton, of Belmont oonnty, for many yesrs (bnt not at this time) the editor of tbe 81. Claimille Oaxelti. Mr. Hiatoii le a good, safe and reliable boel oees man, of high personal oharaoter, and well qualified for tha duties of tbe offloe for wbloh be is oomlnated. Suoh la the ticket pnt In nomination by the Convention, and as snob we oommeod it to all men who desire onr noble State to be resoued from tbe degraded position Into which It Is now plunged through the Imbeollity and ooiraptlon of those at present wielding Its destinies. Let it be tbe resolve of all snob men all true Un nioo men that our ticket mnst be elected, and lot tbem go to work to aooomplish the object. Let there be no relaxation, no cessation of vlg orous and honorable labor, from tbia time until tbe close of the polls on the teoond Tuesday of October next, and then will go forth tbe shout and tbe glad acclaim that Ohio la redeemed and her citlieoa ate free. The Democratic State Convention—Unparalleled Outpouring of the People. Tbe Democratic State Convention of June 11, 1863, will long be remembered by the thou sands who participated In the proceedings of tbe day, as well as the denlssqs of Columbus and oiher lookers-on who may not have participated in its proceedings or sympathised In what was done. Suoh an outpouring of tbe people was never witnessed In Ohio, and the spirit and en thusiasm that prevailed was unparalleled. The nsurpatiooa of ths Federal and Slate Executives and those in authority nnder them, the shame ful and unconstitutional proceedings of the mil itwy power In the Department of Ohio, and particularly the arrest and banishment of Mr. Vallandiqham, bad stirred the heart of tbe people to its inmost depths, and they came np to Columbus to express their deep and uncom promising hostility to tbe violations of tbe Cooetitution of tbe Union and of Ohio in the oondnot of tbe war and all matters connect ed with it, tbe oppression and tyranny whloh prevailed in Ohio, and tbe vital stabs that bad been made at personal liberty and the rights of tbe citisrn. On these questions the people were united and their voice was like the whirl wind, and as "terriblo as an army with ban ners." Tbe question with all waa to determine whether we lived nnder a government of laws, where tbe Constitution was the guide, or a despotism in which tbe will of the Executive and bis military subordinates was supreme. As early as Tuesday evening the people be gan to flack to the Capital from all pacts of the State, and during Wednesday a constant stream kept pouring Into the city, until every place wbtre entertainment oonld be bad was exhautted, and many of the private residences as well as our publio build, logs were filled to overflowing, to say nothing of tbe mass of people that camped out in the outskirts of the city. Wben to this vast crowd was added the number that same in on yester day morning from every section of the country, tho assembled thonsanda were here in such numbers that we will not attempt to estimate them. Every conoeivable mode of conveyance was brought into requisition, to bring the peo ple to Colombns. They came by railroad, in canal boats, in carriages, wagons, on horseback, aod, on foot, and bnt one heait and one spirit animated the Immense living and moving mass, and that was a determination to do every thing taihe power of men to do, to save, if possible, 411 grand old Constitution and the Union, and their own personal rights and liberties as citi tens of Ohio. On Wednesday afternoon and evenlog Im promptu speeches were made, not only In the center of tbe olty tj large crowds, but in many portions of town remote from tbe State House; and on yesterday morning early the people ap pearing in vast cavalcades from every road that leads to onr city, was the signal for hnxzis and speaking to commence, wbloh waa inaugurated before seven o'clock in the morning and kept np all day. We regret that we ate not able to give a iketch of the many able and eloquent speeches that were made, bnt that is wholly out of the question. Their number wouldjflll our pa per for a week, and besides we bad not tbe means to report them. Indeed they were made without notice and at so many different points that it would have required an omnipresent eye to have taken cognisance of them. It was the people's meeting, and waa conducted by tbem In their own way and without any prearrange ment And aa to the vast crowd, what shall we say of Itt In enthusiasm it was beyond anything we have ever witnessed In tbe many meetings we have attended in the past thirty years, and In Its personal oouduot and demean or, we think we speak correctly and truly, when we say that a more orderly assemblage never met on any occasion in Ohio. Tbe official pro oeediogs of the Convention will be found else where, and to them we refer onr readers, regret ting tbat It is not In our power to give a full and graphic account of what transpired during the sitting of the Convention Now, Democrats and other Conservative men of Ohio a word to joni Onr Convention has done its work and adjourned. Your duty now begins, and tbat Is, to spare no effort of a per sonal kind, no means, no sacrlfloe tbat is hon orable, to ratify at tbe polls wbat has been done. Everything Is involved in tbe contest the Constitution, the Union, the rights of tbe citlxen life itself. Then go to work, diligent ly and faithfully, and labor for a victory in wbloh is Involved all that a freeman holds dear or tbat makes life desirable. General Grant's Dispatches. Tbe War Department Is In Immediate com muoloatlon with General Grant, by telegraph direct to Memphis (the wires working from tbat city 'right Into tbe War Department) ana, thence by dispatch boat to General Grant's headquarters. So General G. can common! oate with the Governmsnt, glvbg them snob information and receiving snob aid as are de sired. Nxw Militast DirASTMSNT. A new milia ry department has been formed out of tbe west' era part of Pennsylvania, part of Western Vir ginia and Columbiana, Jefferson and Belmont counties of Ohio. , It will be known as tbe De partment of fte Susquehanna, and will probably be placed tinder command of Major-General Brooks.

COLUMBUS, June 11, 1863. WILLIAM MEDILL, President. REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS. Judge Thos. W Bartlev, from theeommittee on Resolutions, submitted tbe following Report, whion was aaopiea, emia ine greatest eulhusi asm: PLATFORM HTE DEMOCRACY OF OHIO. PREAMBLE. The Demooratio party baj ever been, and yet is, a law abiding party. It asks nothing bnt its rights under tbe Constitut ion and tbe laws It resorts to no violation or either; It countenances no violation of either. It bas a right to all the guarantees of publio and private liberty, and of property, contained In onr fundamental laws, and it will surrendor not one of tbem. It bas the right to discuss publio measures, and will discuss tbem. It bas the right to propose and advocate that polloy whioh it deems best for tbe nation, and It win exercise that right. It bas a right to bave Its polloy passed npon by the peo ple at peaceable and untrammelled elections, and it will maintain that right. If found in a minority it yields obedienoe to all lawful rule of the majirlty; if It be the majority itself, It olalms that its lawful will be respected. Wheth er in a majority or minority, it obeys all laws that are in force. Tuose tht it dislikes, it seeks to overthrow, not by violesoe, but by a legitimate repeal. Those that It proposes, It seeks to carry not by toroe but by legal enaot ment. And what It does in all these respects, it demands, and bas a right to demand, that all others shall do. They owe tbe same obedience to the Constitution and the laws that Demo crats owe. Tbey have the same interest to maintain free government, to proteot liberty, to be secure in their houses, persons and properly, that Democrats have: It U neither their Inter est nor ours, that despotism or anarchy sbonld prevail ; and If tbey wish to avert both, let t- -i see to ii In time tbat they give no oooaslon for either. We will do our outy, let mem remem ber to do theirs. In view, of the olroumstanoes that bave brought ns together, we hereby resolve: RESOLUTIONS. J. Tbat the will of the people Is the founda tion rr all free government. I hat to give er font in this will, tree tnougnt, tree speecn ana a free press are absolutely lodispensable. Wlthnnt free d sousiioo, there is no certainty of sound judgment; without soand judgment there oan be no wise government. 3 That It Is an inherent and constitutional right of the people lo dlsouss all measures of their government, and to approve or disapprove as to their best judgment seems right- That they have a like right to propose and advocate that policy which in their judgment is best, and to argue and vote against whatever polloy seems to them to violate the Constitution, to Impair their liberties, or to be detrimental to their welfare. 3. That these and all other rights, goaran teed to them by their constitutions, are their rights in time of war as well as in time or peace and of far more valne and neoessity in war than in peace. For in peaoe liberty, security and properly are seldom eudaogereo; in war, tbey are ever in peril. 4, Tbat we now say to all whom ll may con' cern. not by way of threat, but calmly and firm' ly, that we will not surrender these rights, nor submit to their forolble violation. We will obey the laws ourselves, and all others mnst obey them. 5. That there is a manifest difference be tweentbe administration of the Government and the Government Itself. The Government consists of tbe oivll and political institutions created by the Constitution, and to It the peo ple owe allegiance, ine Aommisirauon are but the agents of tbe people, subieot lo their ap proval or condemnation, according to the merit or demerit oi ineir acts. 6 Tbat in the exeroise of tbe right to differ with the Federal Executive, we enter our sol emn protest against tbe proclamation of the President of the United States, dated tbe first day of J inuary, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-liiree, by wnion ne assumes to emanoi pate slaves in certain States, holding the same to be nowise, unconstitutional, ana void. 7. That we declare our determined opposi tion to a system of emancipation by the States noon compensation lo be made out ol the treas ury of the United States, as burdensome npon the people, nojust in its very nature, and wholly without warrant oi me uonsiuuiioo. 8. That we declare that the power which bas reoeotly been assnmed by the President of tbe United States, woereoy under the guise oi mil itary oecessity be bss proclaimed aod extended or asserts ti.e right to proclaim or extend martial law over States wbere war does not exist, and has suspended tbe writ of habeai corpu$, nnwairanted by tbe Constitution, and its tendency is to subordinate oivll to military authority, and lo subvert our syBtem ot free government. 9. Tbat we deem It proper fur her to deolare thai we, together with tbe truly loyal people of tbe Stale, would ball with pleasure and delUbt any manlfet-titions of a desire on tbe part of the seceded states to ratora to ineir allegiance to the Government of the Union, and In such event we would cordially and earnestly co oper ate with tbem In tbe restoration of peace aod tbe procurement of suoh proper guarantees as would give scourity to all their interests and rights. 1U. That tbe soldiers composing our armies merit tbe warmest thanks of the nation. Their country oalled and nobly did they respond. Liv ing, tbey shall know a nation's gratitude; wounded, a nation's care; and dying, they ebud live in our memories, nd monuments shall be raised to teach posterity to honor the patriots nd heroes whoofftrod their Jives at tbolr coun try's altar. Their widows and orphans shall be adopted by the nation, lo be waiobed over and oared for as objects truly worthy a nation's gunrdianship. ii. mat unio win adhere to toe uoneutation and tbe Union as the best, it may be the last, hope ot popular freedom, aod tor all wroDgs whion may nave neen commuted or evils wniob may exist,will seek redress, nnder the Constitu tion aod within the Union, by tbe peaoeful but powerlul agenoy or tbe suffrages or a free peo ple. VI. 1 hat we ball with pleasure and hope the manifestations of conservative sentiment among the people of tbe Northern States In their eieouons, and regard tbe same as the ear nest of a good purpose upon their part to co-operate with all other loyal citiseos In giving se curity to the rights ot every section and main taining ine union aod the Constitution as they were oruaioeo dj me lounoers or the Kepubuo. 13 That whenever it becomes nraotioabla to obtain a convention of all or of three-fourths of the States, snob body should be convened lor tbe purpose ol proposing such amendments to the Federal Constitution as exnerienoa haa proved to be necessary to maintain that instru ment in tbe spirit and meaning intended bv its founders, and to provide against fntnre convul. sions and wars. 14. That we will earnestly aunnort constitutional measure tending to preserve the Union of the States. No man have a greater ioteiest in Its preservation than we bave none desire it more; there are none who will make greater sacrifioea or endure more tban we will to acoompiisn thai end.

And we furthermore denounce said arrut. trial and banishment, as a direoi Insult offered to the sovereignty ot the people of Ohio, bv whose organlo law It is deolared, that "no per son shall be transported out or the State for any offense committed within the same." 16. Tbat Clement L. Vellandlgham was. at the time ot ois arrest, a prominent candidate for nomination by the Democratic party of Ohio roc me omoe ot uovernor or the state : that the DemooTAtie party was fully competent to decide whether be was a fit man for tbat nom ination ; aod tbat tha attempt to deprive tbem of that right by his arrest and banishment waa an unmerited imputation npon ineir intelligence and loyalty, as well as a violation oi ma Con ititutlon. - 17. That we respectfully but most earnMtl oall upon the President oi tbo United States to restore Clement a, vaiianoignam to his home In Ohio: and tbat a committee ot oue from anh Congressional distriot of tbe Slate, to be select edbv the presiding offloer of Ibis Convention, la hereby appointed to present this application to tbe President. "" 18. That tbe thanks of this Convention are hereby tendered to Horatio Seymour, Governor of the State of New York, for hia nobu int In relation to ths oreat of Mr. Vallandigham; and (be President of the Convention Is hereby diteated la u.mjiiinloats a copy of this resolu tion to Gov. oeymour. 19. Tbat tbe eitanitehment or a military government over loyal States, where wsr does not exist, to supersede tbe oivll authorities and suppress tbe freedom of speeiband of the press, and to interfere witn me elective iraucuiea, not only subversive of the Constitution, and the sovereignty of tbe States, but the aotuai inauguration of revolution. SO Tbat It is the sworn duty of the Gover nor of tbe State to protect her tiilaene In the enjoyment and exercise of nil their constitu tional rights, and we bave beheld with deep humiliation and regret, not only tbe failure of David Tod, Governor of Ohio, to perform tbat duty, but what Is still worse bis active partici pations In lbs violation of those rights. SI. That we denounce as trai ors to tbe country the Abolition Jsooblns who are seek ing to bring about civil war lo the loyal States, with tbe view oi turning, If possible, the bayo nets of tbe srmy against the breasts of tbe fath ers, brothers and friends of the soldiers, and snbjeotiog those States to a military surveil lance and dominion. S3. Tbat we denounce, as llbelers of the Demooratio party and enemies of their country, the men who are engaged in representing the Damooratio party as wtutiug in sympathy with our soldiers in tbe field. His a basealsr.der npon bnman nature to aBsert tbat Demoorata who bave hundreds of thousands of brothers and sons in the army, do not eympathixs with them and Ills aa out.ageupou the Democratic party, that has always stood by tbe oountry, to assert that It Is not tbe f riend of its gallant de fenders. S3. That tbe conduot of Brigadier General Mason, ths military commandant at Columbus, and or the officer commanding tbe provoet guard, In preventing all appearance of military restraint upon the proceedings of this Conven tion, show that they have a juat appreciation of the Constitution of their couutry and the rights of tbe people aod that tbey are wise and patriotic officers; and tbat their conduot on ibis oooaslon Is in striking contrast witb tbe contrary conduct of the military authorities upon tbe occasion ot tbe late Democratic meet lug at Indianapolis. And we take pleasure in expressing our confidence in Geu. Masou, and the officers and soldiers under bis command.
