Democratic National Convention,
Mr. Butler, of New York, chairman of the
Committee to prepare an address to the Formic
of the United States, reported the following res
olutions, which were unauimously adopted, and
on motion leave was granted to the committee to
prepare the address at their leisure.
Rcsohed, That tlio American Democracy
place their trust not in factitious symbols, not in
displays and appeals insulting to the judgments
and subversive of the intellect of the people, but
in a clear reliance upon the intelligence, the pat-
iiuuoui aim mu Ulstuiuiliauilg JUSUCe 01 U1G A'
merican masses,
Resolved, That we regard this as a distinctive
feature of our political creed, which we aro proud
to maintain before the world as the great moral
element in a form of government, springing from
and upheld by tho popular will ; and wo contrast
it with the creed and practice of Federalism, un
der whatever name, or form, which seeks to palsy
the will of the constituents, and which conceives
no imposture too monstrous for the popular cre
dulity, Resohedy therefore, That, entertaining these
views, the Democratic party of this Union, through
their dclesrates assembled in a reneral conven
tion of the States, cumins together in a snirit of
concord, of devotion to the doctrines and faith of
a free representative government, and appealing
to their fellow citizens for the rectitude of their
intentions, renew and re-assert before the Amer
ican people, tho declaration of principles avowed
by them, when on a former occasion, in general
convention, they presented their candidates for
the popular suffrages;
i. mattiie federal Government is one of
limited powers, derived solely from the Const!
tution, and the grants of power shown therein
ought to be strictly construed bv all the denart
ments and agents of the Government, aud that it
uiexpeaient ana dangerous to exercise doubt
ful constitutional powers.
2. That the Constitution does not confer upon
it. ..t 1
me uuiieraiuovcrnmout tne powers to commence
and carry onagencral system ofintei-nil improve
ments. '
3. That tho Constitution docs not confer au
thority upon the Federal Government, directly
or indirectly, to assumo the debts of the several
btate9, contracted for local internal improve
ments, or oilier htate purposes'; nor would such
assumption bo just and expedient.

Federal Government to foster one branch of in
dustry to the detriment of another, or to cherish
tne interests of one portion to the injury of ano
ther portion of our comtmn country that every
citizen and every section of the country lias a
right to demand and insist upon an equality ofi
nguts and privileges, and to complete an ample
protection of persons and properly from domestic
violence or toreign aggression.
5. That it is the duty of every branch of the Go
vernment to enforce and practicolhe most rigid
economy in conducting our public affiirs, and
that no more revenue ought to be raised than is
required to defray the necessary expanses of the
Government. '
ihat Congress has no power to charter a Na
tional Bank; that we believe such uii institution
one of deadly hostility to the best interests ofthe
country, dangerous to our Republican institutions
and the liberties of the people, and calculated to
place the business of tho country within the con
trol of a concentrated mouey power, and above
iuu laws aim me win ot the people.
7. That Coni'ress 1ms no nnwor imdnr tho
Constitution, to interfere with or control the do
mestic institutions of the several States, and that
such btates are the sole and proper judges of
every thing appertaining to their own affiirs, not
prohibited by the Constitution; that all cfforls of
the Abolitionists or others, made to induce Con
gross to interfere with questions of slavery, or to
take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calcu
lated to tend to the most alarming and dangerous
consequences, and that all such efforts havo an
inevitable tendency to diminish tho happiness of
uie people, and endanger th? stability and per
manency of tho Union, and ought not to be coun
tenancedby any friend to our political institutions.
8. That tho separation of tho moneys of the
Government from banking institutions, is indis
pensable tor the safety ot the funds of thq Gov
ernmcnt and the rights of the people.
U. That the liberal principles embodied bv
'Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence,

Resolved, That the prococds of the public
Janda ought to bo sacredly applied to iho national
objects specified in tho Constitution ; and that we
fii opposed to the law lately adopted, and to any
law for the distribution of such proceeds among
ho Stales, as alike inexpedient in policy and re
pugnant to the Constitution.
Resolved, That wo aro decidedly opposed to
taking frQio Ihe President the qualified Veto
power by which he is enabled, under restrictions
and responsibilities, amply sufficient to guard the
public interest, to suspend tho passage of a bill,
whoso merits cannot secure the approval of two
thirds of the Senate and House of Representa
tives, until the judgment of tho people can bo ob
tained thereon, and which has thrice saved the
American people from the corrupt mid yrannical
domination ofthe Bunk ofthe United States.
Resolved. That our title to tho whole of tho
Territory of Oregon is clear and unquestionable;
that no portion of tho same ought to bo ceded to
England or any other power ; and that the reoccu
pation of Oregon and the re-annexation of Texas
at the earliest practfcablo poriod are great Amer
ican measures, which this Convention rccom-
jnends to the cordial support ot tho democracy
of tho Union. " ' '-

which he discharged the duties otthe high onice
of President of the United Slates, and especially
of the inflexible fidelity with which he maintain

measures of the Democratic party during his try
ing and nobly arduous administration; that in the
memorable struggle of 1S40 he fell a martyr to
the gtcat principles of which he was tho worthy
representative, and revere hira na such; and that
we hereby tender to him, in his honorable retire
ment, the assurance of the deeply seated confi

the United Stales in supwt of the principles of
the Democratic party and of tho candidates pre

tion, be prepared by the committee on resolutions
and be published by them.
Kesolrcd, I hat the proceedings of this Con
vention be signed by its officers and published
in the Democratic Republican newspapers of the
United States.
Before tho adjournment of the Convention.,
Mr. Wbight (President) addressed the Conven
tion in substance as fallows:
Gextlemen of the Convention:
Our labors are now brought to a termination ;
our work is done. In a few hours wo leave this
theatre of tho last day's oction, and enter the
great political vineyard 'ofthe nation, where it is
to be hoped each ono. of us will severally dis
charge the important duty ho owes to our com
mon country by the presentation of those im
mutable 'principles contained in the great demo
cratic creed by perseverance and labor in the
republican faith, and by the protection of all those
sacred rights transmitted to us and our couutry
by our illustrious ancestors, and which are above
all price (cheers after cheers.) We shall enter
the campaign of 1844, under the most auspicious
circumstances of success. lo our enemy the
Democratic legions present an undivided and un
broken front. Deatcning applause. The per
fect unanimity that has characterized our delib
erations the character and qualifications of our
candidates, aro arguments that carry conviction
to the mind, the bast and the West, tho iorth
and the South, have joined hands in the ties ofi
a holy brotherhood, and resolved to conquer.
Great, enthusiastic cheering.
The Democratic flag that has dragged its broad
folds in Iho dust since the disastrous campaign
of 1S40, is about to be replaced on the battle
ments. (Cheers.) There may it wave till the
enemy is routed, and the country redeemed.
(Rounds of applause.) Who can assail our cam
didates? Wiio can charge upon thcrn a want of
ability? Who can deny their truth their intel
ligence or their virtue? We can present them
to tho country and say of them as the Roman
mothors did of their children and say of them in
her language, "these are our jewels.' (Deaf
ening shouts of applause.) These are our stan
dard bearers in the noblest contest tho Democ
racy of tho nation ever encountered, and if with
them we cannot triumph. Democracy is but a
bye-word, and the name and memory of Jeffer
son should be stricken from the catalogue of the
benefactors of the human race the founder of
the grandest theory of Republican Government
ever presented to the world! bet his memory
be obliterated aud his deeds be forgotten, when
the principles of the great charter he presented
to the nation are trampled upon and disregarded
Gentlemen, I cannot take leave of you, without
expressions of intense pain, and tho most agroo
able emotions of pleasure. My voice filters un
der tho thought that we part forever. This body,
composed of the most distinguished men of this
great this mighty nation, assembled hero from all
pails of the Union each Stato dclegatingto her
most distinguished sons, tho most solemn trust
ever reposed in any body of men, sinco that day,
when, in tho hall3 of tho Continental Congress,
the great character of human liberty was born.
(Great cheering.) If the Eastern conqueror wept
over the millions of human beings passing in re
view before him. under the influence" "f the
llionsr'it that in a short timo not one of them
should bo left, how much more reason havo I to
weep at the thounht that this monument of mind
before me must pass away in the change of all
things. It cannot be it will last and bo fresh
on tho page of our country's history, when the
pyramids ofthe Nilo shall have crumbled, stone
by stone to atoms. (Immense applause.) The
man may die, but the fruits of his mind are the
groth of eternity. (Loud and long continued
cheering, and cries of hear, hear.) To you has
been entrusted tho important charge of preser
ving the second charter of liberty the principles
contained in Mr. Jefferson's Inaugural Address.
The duty has been most faithfully performed.
(Cheers.) But, gentlemen, 1 leave you with
feelings of plcasuro, because I religiously believe
we have accomplished a work this day that shall
stand recorded to the honor and glory of our
country ; (loud cheering;) and that work is the
laying the corner stone ofthe resioration of the
Democratic ascendency. Without this, the coun
try cannot flourish; with it she is the Hercules
of nations. (Loud applause.) I leave yor. gen
tlemen, and in rctirii)2 from this distinguished
post which in your partiality, you unanimously
assigned to me, I leave tho solace that tho same
body unanimously approved the manner in which
Iliad discharged its important duties.' Pardon
me for another word i entor into the approach

mination to triumph, and the rosult is certain.

Interesting Biographical Sketch.
We copy from the Baltimore Republican and
Argus, the following interesting sketch of the
life and character of Col. Polk, the Democratic
nominee for President of the United States, It
won't do for the federal whigs to say that Mr.
Polk is a stranger. They know him full well
they will know him much better before the Pres
idential Election and they will know him better
still, en the Fourth of March next, when, if he
is living, he will be inaugurated as President of
this glorious Republic!
JAMES K. POLK was bcrn in Mecklenburg
county, JNorth Carolina, on the second day of :
November, 1795, and is now in the 49th year of
his ago. 1 lie original name of his ancestors was
Pollock; they civj'igrated from Ireland more than
a century ago, and first settled themselves in
Maryland, where several branches ofthe family
st 11 remain. That branch from which our can
didate more immediately sprung, removed first
to the vicnutv of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and
thence to the western frontier of North Carolina
some time before the Revolutionary war. Thom
as Polk, well known as one ofthe signers if not
tho prime mover, of the celebrated Mecklcnbur
Declaration of Independence, was the grand un
cle of our nominee. Indeed the whole family
were noted for their uncompromising democratic
principles, and to this day are characterized for
that sturdines3 of independence which led Col
Thomas Polk with others to absolve themselves
under their signatures from all allegiance to
Great Britain more than a twelvemonth betore
the Declaration of Congress in 1770. Of the
people of Air. Polk's native couutry, it has often
been said, as an evidence ot their bold and ready
patriotism, that "at the last war they took up
arms six months before, and did not lay them
down till twelve months after the government."
A man born from such ancestors, with his infan
cy nurtured in the atmosphere of such a region,
can be nothing but a Democrat an unyielding,
uncompromising Democrat; and such a man is
Jas. K. Polk.
Mr. Polk's father was an unassuming but en
teiprising fanner. He was the maker of his own
fortune, and a warm supporter of Mr. Jefferson.
In 1800, he became one of tho first pioneers of
what is now the most flourishing and populous
portion of Tennessee. In our wilderness settle
ments, the opportunities of education, of course
are very scanty. Notwithstanding this difficulty,
however, our candidate managed to acquire the
elements of an English education. And so ear
nest were his desires for improvement, and so
ardent his appeals, that although on account of
his feeble health, was placed tor a tew weeks in
a store, with the intent of making him a commer
cial man, vet the resistance ot his lather was
overcome, and after due preparation at an acad
emy, lie entered in 1815 the University of North
Carolina, from wjiich ho graduated in ISIS, car
rying off the highest distinction in his class, and
with the reputation of being the best scholar, both
in the classics and mathematics.
Early in 1819, Mr. Polk commenced the study
of Law with the late Senator Grundy, and late
in 1820 was admitted to the bur.
In 1823, then in his 28th year he was cho
sen to represent his counly in the Legislature of
Tennessee. Here he remained lor two succes
sive years, and with pride he looks b:;ck to tho
opportunity this position give him to aid with
others in calling Axdrkw Jackson from his re
tirement, by electing him to tho United States
Senate. To this venerable and venerated man,
ho entertained an early personal and political
friendship a friendship which to this moment,
has never known a "shadow ot turning."
In 1825, then in his 30th year, Mr. Polk was
elected as a member of Congress. Bringing
with him tho soundest principles of the Demo
cratic school, he soon became known as a repub
lican of the "slraitest sect." With only one or
two exceptions, ho was tho youngest member of
the House ot Representatives, and an opportuni
ty was not long wanted to give evidence of his
capacity as well as ol his principles. Ihc toul
coiTi'.ption which gave issue to tho election ol
John Q. Adams to the Presidency by the House
through the fraudulent bargain with Clay, led to
a proposition to amend tho Constitution in such
manner as to give the choico 6f President and
Vice President directly to tho People. This is
what ought to be the case tho whole system ofi
voting through electors is wrong, and needs re
peal. In favor of this proposition, Mr. Polk made
his first speech in Congress, which we arc told
"at onco attracted the attention of the country
by the force of its reasoning, iho copiousness of
research and the spirit ol honest indignation by
which it was animated. It was at once seen, that
his ambition was to distinguish himself by sub
stantial merit, rather than rhetorical display, "the
rock upon which most young orators split."
At tho same session, the notorious scheme ot
old federalism, known as the "Panama Mission,"
was broached. Against this attempted subver
sion ofthe rights and powers ofthe House, Mr.
Polk took a bold stand, embodying his views in a
series of resolutions, based upon tho doctrines of
tho Republican party of '98.
InDccembor, 1827, Mr. Polk was placed on
the important Committee of Foreign Affairs.
Ho was also Chairman of the Select Committee
to which was referred that portion of Jackson's
Message in referenco to the probable accumula
tion of a surplus in the Treasury after the antici
pating extinguishment of the public debt. Tho
rejwt made by him from this committee is fil
led with tho soundest doctrines, ably and lucidly
The session of 1830, is noted for tho death
blow given by Jackson to tho unconstitutional
system of Internal Improvements by the General
Government. Mr. Polk stood out foremost in
this contest in sustaining tho President; vindica
ting the man against the personal abuse heaped
upon him. and his veto by which tho monster
was strangled. . . .
In 1832, Mr. Polk was a member of the Com-
mitloo of Ways and Moans. It Was at this ses
sion he so distinguished himself in this Commit
tee, m the contest with tho United States Bank.
His minority report brought against him the whole
power ofthe Bank. How nobly he sustained
himself against the profligate misrepresentations
and unscrupulous cllorts of that power, can never
be forgotten by the country. His onomics still
bear in mind his unyielding efforts and tireless
oncrgy his friends arc now to reward him for
his unshaken patriotism and iron decision, which
in tho whole of that fearful contest, never gave
way a hair's breadth, nor shrunk from the dead
liest blows, nirncd as they were, by arms mighty
in power, and ncrvod with the merciless energy
of hellish desperation.
In 1833, the corruption and open defiance of
the United elates Bank, determined the Presi
dent to the removal of tho public deposites from
its vaults. ' A man ot boldness to suggest and
courace to act, was needed as Chairman of (ho
Wayg and Means; JAMES K. POLK wag guch
a man. Tho shock was to bo a formidublo one.
Tho contest was to be fiercer than ever. But ho
proved himself equal to all that the crisis deman
ded. 1 bis short sketch cannot do justice to the
man wbo stood foremost in this fearful conflict.
Who does not remember the session of 1833?
Who has forgotten the hopes and fears the de
nunciations of opponents the defection of friends
the watering of the timid and the stern defi
ance of the sound hearted, who stood by the uold
man of iron tcilli" who can foigct that contest?
W ho was the man that then led on our ranks in
the House ofRepresentatives, until m the trium
phant victory, the Bank yielded in despair, and
tne righteous cause ot tho rcople was again in
the ascendant? That man was JAS. K. POLK!
And now, when tho whole country turns with
sickening disgust from the carcass of the mon
ster, sething with corruption and cursed with the
tears and sutler.pgs of the widow and the orphan
who will hesitato to do honor to Aim, whom the
conflict stood out so manfully and did battle in
the very foremost rank, until the victory was won
and tbc enemy lay expiring at his feet?
In December 183o, Mr. Polk was elected
Speaker of tho House, and he was chosen again
to tho same high station in 1837. In tho per
formance of his arduous duties, he was noted for
his dignity, promptitude and impartiality. "His
calmness and good temper allayed the violence
of opposition in a station for which his quickness
coolness and sagacity eminently qualified him.
lie is said never to have missed a division,lns name
being found upon every list of yeas and nays.
Iv.s manner as a speaker was distinguished
groat courtesy, never having been known to in
ckilge in offensive porsonalily. In one word, his
popularity is owing to the firmness and consis
tency of his course, his conscientious perform
anco of his duties as a representative, his unwa
vering patriotism, his gentlemanly bearing, and
unsnutteu private character. Calm, sagacious.
active, decided and endowed with great practi
cal capabilities, few men could have been selec
ted upon which tho party without a dissenting
voice could be bettor united at the ballot box
Since Mr. Polk left Congress, his history is
well known. His election as Governor of 1 en-
ncssee, against an opposition to which no ordi
nary man could havo succeeded, from the strong
hold ho has upon the people oi that State. It is
true, that in 1841 and in 1843 he was defeated
but in tho first, Jones his competitor, obtained a
majority ot only d,224, when Harrison had 12,
102, and in '43 Mr. Polk received about 4,000
votes more than in '41. In tho coming contest,
Clay cannot hope to come off with the. palm of
victory in Tennessee. That State will do justice
to one who has served her so faithfully and who
is so deserving of her sinccrest devotion. She
cannot she will not give the votes of her sons
to him, who through one of the most nefarious
schemes of "bargain and corruption," defrauded
Andrew Jackson of the Presidency; in behalf of
one who never at any tune had a feeling in com
mon with Tennessee or any southern or south
western State.
Tho llavrisburgh Democratic Union gives the
following short, but highly interesting biograph
ical sketch ofthe nominee ofthe Baltimore Con
vention, for Vice President of the United
"Mr. Dallas is a native of Philadelphia, and
the elder son of Alexander James Dallas, Secre
tary of the Treasury under Mr. Madison. As
early as 1813, Mr. Dallas accompanied Albert
Gallatin, minister to St. Petersburg, as his confi
dential secretary, under the appointment of Mr.
Madison. In August, 1814, Mr. Dallas returned
to tho United States, bearing the despatches
from the American commissioners then holding
their sessions at Ghotit. In 1817 he was ap
pointed deputy Attorney General for the city of
Philadelphia, and soon gave evidence of all
those legal adornments that have since won their
way to enviable renown. Having been among
the first in Pennsylvania to espouse tho cause of
General Jackson, that illustrious Patriot, on his
election to the Presidency, appointed him Dis-
lic.t Attorney of Ihe United States. In the year
1828, he was chosen to the Mayoralty of the city
of Philadelphia. In the year 1831, Mr. Dallas
was elected to the United Slates Senate, in
which enlightened body he ranked as one of its
11... i . ti ....
aiuesr, ana most accompiisneu ucoaiors. At tne
close of his Senatorial term, ho was appointed by
Governor Wolfe Attorney General for Pennsylva
nia, which he occupied until Mr. Rilnar's elec
tion in 1833, when he, of course;, withdrew.
On the elevation of Mr. Van Buren, he was ap
pointed Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plen
ipotentiary to Kussia, in which country he re
mained until 1839. In his politics he lias al
ways been thoroughly and consistently Demo
cratic, and on the new issue of the re-anncxalion
of Texas, he has declared himself months ago,
in a letter to Senator Walker, in favor of immcdi
diate annexation. The name of Mr. Dallas
gives tho Democratic ticket, great strength in
Pennsylvania, and wo confidently predict its suc
cess by from 10 to 20,000 majority. ,

The publisher of this work, (the prospectus
for which appears in our columns) has politely
forwarded us six copies, from January to June,
inclusive. In typography it is decidedly ono of
the neatest monthlies in the world. Three
splendid cngiavings , accompany each number,
which of themselves, aro more than worth the
price of subscription. As for the character of
the articles, it is only necessary for us to say,
that they arc the productions of such writers as
Irving, Coopor, Paulding, Bryant, Halleck, Fay,
Cox, Weld, Tuckcrman, Imnan, Arthur, Her

The Philadelphia Spirit of the Times of the
1st inst., gives the following truly interesting in
cident. It is good of itself, and is very well told.
Read it.
Tho news of the nomination of Geo. M. Dal
las was conveyed to that gentleman in a singu
lar manner, and merits a notice, it was ar
ranged to be announced to him by the Eastern
delegation on their wav home from the Conven
tion. . Accompanied bv Senator Walker, of.
Mississippi, a personal friend of Mr. Dallas, the
delegates, 60 in number, arrived in this city, on
Friday morning, about 51 o clock. tJt course
almost every body was yet asleep. Tho party
soon reached Mr. D's house in walnut below
Tenth si reet, and Mr Walker, ascending the
steps, rang the bell. After a pause, Mrs. D. put
her head out ot the window, and seeing lur.
Walker, conjectured that some misfortune had
happened to her daughter, resident in Washing
ton. Mr. Walkefs remark, "1 wish to see Mr
Dallas immediately," confirmed her suspicions,
and she hastily awakened her husband, communi
cating the sad conjectures. He ran down stairs
half dressed and bare-looted opened the door
when to his utter amazement, in walked sixty
or more gentlemen, two by two, with tho tread
of soldiers passing him by and entering his trout
parlor as though to make him a captive. Not
having tho slightest conception of their object
he stood thunder struck at tho scene. Mr. Walk
er led him into the back parlor. "My dear
Walker, said he in amazement, " what is the
matter? "Wait one moment, if you please
Dallas wait ono moment if you please."
The folding doors were then thrown open
and the whole delegation stepping torward, gave
three deafening cheers, for " Polk and Dallas I"
Mr. D. stood paralyzed. Mir. Walker enjoyed
his discomfiture. Gov. Fairfield, of Maine, then
he steppod forward, and in the name of the
delegation, solved tho mystery in the following
brief speech:
Mr. Dallas, I have tliehonor to inform you that the
National Convention of Democrats assembled nt Bal
timore, having entire confidence in the purity of your
jrivnto character, and tne distinguished services you
:invo rendered to tho Iomociatic party,
have ununi
mntisly conferred upon you tho nomination of Vice Pres
ident ot the I'nitecl States.
Unsolicited on your part and unexpected as it no
doubt is, we are authorized to announce to you that tne
people of tho United States in Democratic Convention
assembled, have thus selected one whom the Democracy
