The People's Platform. ;. The following is the Platform adopted by the Peopks'sJConvention, which assem bled at Philadelphia, in June last. Read it, and contrast it with the Pro-Slavery, Nigger Driving Platform, adopted at Cin cinnati:' This Convention of Delegates, assem bled in pursuance of a call addressed to the people of the United States, without resard to past political dinerences or di visions; who aro opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise; to the policy of the present administration ; to the extension of Slavery into free territory; in favor of the admission of Kansas as a free State; of restoring the actum of the Federal Govern ment to the principles of asliington and Jefferson; and for the purpose of present ing candidates for ihe offices of President and Vice f resident do resolve: Resolved, That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in the Declaration of Independence and embodied in the Fed eral Constitution, are essential to the pre servation of our republican interests, and that the rights of the Stales must and shall be preserved. - Resolved, That, with our republican fa thers, we hold it to be a self-evident truth that all men are endowed with the malien able right of liberty and the pursuit of hap piness, and that the primary oliject and ul terior design of our Federal Government were to secure these rights to all persons under its exclusive jurisdiction; that as our republican fathers, when they had abolished slavery iu all our national terri tory, ordered that no person shall be de prived of life, liberty, or prosperity, with out due process of law, it becomes our du ly to maintain this provision of their Con stitution against all attempts to violate it for the purpose of establishing slavery in the Territories of the United States, by positive legislation prohibiting' its exist ence or extention therein. Resolved, That the Constitution confers npon Congress sovereign power over the Territories of the United States for their government, and that in the existence of this power it is the right and imperative duty of Congress to prohibit in the Terri tories those twin relics of barbarisin--slave- ry and polygamy. Resolved, that while the Constitution of the United Slates was ordained by the people in order to form a more perfect un ion, and establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common de fence, promote the general welfare, and se cure the blessings of liberty, and contains ample provisions for the protection of the life, liberty, and property of every citizen, the dearest constitutional rights of the peo ple of Kansas have been fraudulently taken from them; their territory has been invad-J ed ' by an armed force; spurious and pre tended legislative, judicial, and executive officers have been set over them, by whose usurped authority, sustained by the milita ry power of the government, tyranieal and unconstitutional laws have been enact ed and enforced, the righU of the people to keep and bear arms has been infringed, testoaths of an extraordinary and entang ling nature have been imposed as a condi tion of exercising the right of suffrage; the right of an accused person to a speedy and publie trial by an impartial jury has been denied; the right of the people to be se cure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, has been violated ; they have lieen deprived of life, liberty and property with out due process of law; the freedom, of speech and the press has been abridged; the right to choose their representatives has been made of no effect; murders, robberies and arsons have been instigated or encour aged, and the offenders have been allowed to go unpunished v that all these things have been done with the knowledge, sanc tion and procurement t)f the present na tional administration, and that for this high crime against the Constitution, the Union, and humanity, we arraign the administra tion, the President, his advisers, agents, supporters, apologists and accessories, ei ther before or after the fact, before the country and before the world, and that it is our fixed purpose to bring the actual perpetrators, of these atrocious outrages and their accomplices to a sure aud condign punishment hereafter. Resolved, That Kansas should be im mediately admitted as a free State of this Union, with her present free constitution, as at once the most effectual way of secur ing to her citizens the enjoyment of the rights and privileges to which they are en titled, and of ending the civil strife now raging in the Territory. Resolved, That the highwayman's plea that "might makes right," embodied in the Onstcad Circular, was in every respect un worthy of American diplomacy, and would bring shame and dishonor upon every gov ernment or people that gave it their sanc tion. ' ' Resolved, That a railroad to the Pacific Ocean, by the most central aud practica ble route, is imperatively demanded by the interests of the whole country, and that the Federal Government ought to render immediate aud efficient aid in its coast mic tion, and as an auxiliary thereto to the im mediate construction of an emigrant road on the line of the railroad. Resolved, That appropriations by Con- fress for the improvement of rivers and arbors of a national character, i-orjuired for the accommodation and security of an existing commerce, arc authorized by the Constitution, and justified by the obliga tions of the Government to protect the lives and property of its citizens. Resolved, That we invito tho affiliation and co-operation of tho men of all jtfirties, however differing from ns in other respects, in support of the principle herein decla red ; and lnjlieving that the spirit of our in stitutions, as wili as the Constitution of our count ry, guarantee liberty of conscience and equality of rights among citizens, we oppose all legislat ion nffecl ing their security.

Phillip Dorsheimer. sheimer. We tale great pleasure in publishing the followurnfcniter from Hon. Philip Dorshe- imer,'of Buffalo, New York, so pertinent is it to the question at issue,and soon to be pronounced upon at the ballot-box. Mr. Dcrsheimer, as well be seen, is an adopted citizen, a German, and one of many of his distinguished countrymen who have declared for J? reruout and Dayton. With him Democracy is something more tlian a name it is a ereat principle ; and that principle being found in the Republi can, and not in the so-called Democratic Platform, explains his repudiation of Mr. Buchanan. Read it, citizens, adopted and native ; it will do you good. It is a no ble and manly letter. It has been furnish ed us by J. F. Donaldson, Esq- of this place, to whom it is addressed : BUFFALO, July 15, 1856. Dear Sir : I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter asking me to vis it the counties of Tioga and Lycoming. I have delayed answering tins nivilation, because I hoped to be able to accept it ; but I am sorry to say that my present en casements are such that 1 cannot nx upon any time for visiting Pennsylvania. Some time in the Autumn I may be able to, and if so. I will inform vou. It is the special duty of foreign-born citizens to vote the Republican ticket- Most foreigners come here, as I did, with no other wealth than the strength of their hands. They have to depend upon their labor for all their hopes of future comfort, usefulness and dimit y. Of all the bless ings which American "liberty promises them, the most valuable is the assurance it gives of freedom to work, and security for their earnings. They can part with ouher pnv ilegcs the elective franchise eligibility to oIIkxs rat Iter than this one. Slavery degrades the working man. It reduces him to the level of the slave. No Know Nothing proscription can be so effec tive as that which excludes free labor from slave soil. " From all that soil, comprising more than one-half the territory of the States, foreigners are to-day banished by laws more positive than any legislative en actment, and it is now the purpose of a large and powerful party to banish them from the prairies of the West. Those re gions belong to all of us, to the Southern- or and Northeruor, tho foreigner and na tive ; and it is that each man may have his share, and enjoy his rights, that the Republican party enters the fight this cam paign. l ou say, bir, that most ot the trermans in your neighborhood have hitherto been Democrats. This is the very reason why they should be Republicans now. For more than thirty years I have been a Democrat, never voting any other ticket, and that is what makes me a Republican. The Republican policy is tho Democratic policy, a policy which was carried out by the administrations of Jefferson, Monroe, Jackson and Polk ; which received the ap proval of Democratic Statesmen like Van Buren, Silas Wright and Cass ; and the constitutionality of which was never, until within a few years, called into question by any Democrat, not even by such doubtful and unsteady Democrats as John C. Cal houn and James Buchanan. This new policy of the extention of Slavery is not Democratic at all. It was not thought so by its author until after he had left the Democratic party and entered the Cabinet of a Whig President. Its chief supporters from the south are renegade Whigs. Even foreigner ought to be a Republican, but if he is a Democrat as well as a foreigner, I cannot see how he can refuse to become one. Besides, Sir, we adopted citizens ought to do all in our power to put down this sectional agitation, and to preserve the Union of these States, upon which our prosperity and the prosperity of all citizens depends. For this, what course is left open to this ? . On the one side we see a party which lias re-opened sectional agitation, re vived the slavery dispute, and which pro poses to aggrandize ono portion of the country at the expense of all others. This party is now represented by an administra tion, the most influential members of which, and whose chief supporters in Congress, are Southern secessionists, open and avow ed disunionisfs. These men do not seek to preserve the Union ; while in it they use the power of the Government, so that Southern territory shall be larger when they go out of it. On the other hand, we see a party, fortunately neither largo nor powerful, which, besides being fully com mitted to these sectional schemes of disun ion, seeks to destroy the harmony of our society by drawing distinctions between men of different races and creeds. : I have no choice left except to go with the only truly National party, the great Republican party, by which the whole country, both North and South, and all citizens, Catholic and Protestants, native and foreign, will be protected in every right, privilege and liberty ; and in whose hands the Federal Government will be safe against all enemies at home and abroad. We aro singularly fort unate in our can didate. I know Col. Fremont to be an honest man, with ability more than suffi cient for any duly which may be required of him. His whole career, all his associa tions, show him to be a truly national man. He is the son of a foreigner, he is a Southernor by birth and education, his life has been spent in the service of the whole country, ho has dono more for lief than any living American,' and he is conscien tiously in favor of that time-honored policy which protects Slavery where it exists un der State laws, and prohibits its extention into Territories now free. Hoping to see you in the course of a month or two, I remain, most truly, your PHILIP DORSHEIMER. To J. F. DONALDSON, Esq.

On speaking of the disreputable move ment made by Sonator Bigler, of Penn sylvania the bosom friend of Buchanan to throw somes uspicion npon Col, Fre- mokt by calling for an investigation of ac counts long since audited as correct, and allowed, the New York Tribuieve says: "Go ahead, irenllemen 1 You had all these accounts in your hands for years: and, if there be anything wrong in -them, you should long since have exposed and reprobated it' It was only last session that a 6trongly Democratic Congress, by a vote nearly if not quite unanimous in both Houses, admitted that the uovernment honestly owed CoL Fremont a large sum for advances made and debts incurred by him for the public service, in California several years ago. .That money was ac cordingly paid over to him. If it was not his just due, tho Committee that scrutinized the accounts and reported in his favor were most culpable; if there was "any pubh'c money in his hands unaccounted for," that money should have been deducted by the Treasury accountants from the amount due him by Congress. . If there were any "charges" of "malfeascnce in office" then pending, they should have been brought to knowledge of Congress, and duly con sidered by it in making its award in his behalf. Upon this matter too, the New Yosk Evening Post says: 1 lie Senator from Pennsylvania who on Saturday shot from his seat a poisoned ar row at the official character of Col. Fre mont, has been, for many years, a political dependant of James Buclianan, and in this transaction, of course was acting for his principal. A more shameless proceeding, has rarely, if ever, occurred in Congress Gov. Bigler knows, and his principal, James Buchanan, knows still better, that the in sinuations conveyed in the resolution of inquiry offered on Saturday are maliciously unjust; that Col. Fremont's account, have all been passed upon by a Committee of Congress, among whom were several of his political opponents, that the only accusa tionswnicheverreactied Washington in re- gnrd- to-theov came through CoL Mason while Governor of California, an avowed enemy of CoL Fremont, and an ally of Gen. Kearney in his warfare against the Colonel, who, while underlying a challenge from Col. r remont for using insolent language, begged to have the meeting postponed for three years and a half, and pending that period, trumped up charges and sent them home for the purjosc of prejudicing him with the Court Martial to be- convened for trial; they also know that the Court took no notice of his chames: that Presi dent Taylor a year afterwards appointed him a Commissioner to run tho Boundary line tetween tne United States and Mexico, thereby practically pronouncintr the ac cusation referred to malicious and jrround- s; and that subsequent ly to that event, I he was chosen Senator of the United States, on tho first ballot, by tho legislature of California, when the facts in rerjard to these accusations were well known ami thorough ly canvassed, They know those facts per- fectly well, but thev think that the mere fact of an inquiry of this kind leing insti tuted by the benate may prejudice him with those who are pot aware of the vulgar and unmanly spirit in which it originated, Col. remont s nccount s were settled a year ago or more; theywere carefully can vasser! hy a committee ot the House of Re presentatives, one of whom was Extra Billy Smith of Virginia, notorious for his strict ness in such m.ntters, and were unanimous paised upon and se'tkd by the "on currence of the House. - Not a complaint has ever been laid before the public by the federal officers, nor an intimation that Lis accounts were open to exception ; but now, when he is a candidate for the Presidency, his antagonist chooses to avail himself of the control wbicn nig party Ja over tne government archives, to institute an iuqulri designed to impeach, his official integrity. It is a cowardly proceeding, and will harm none but those by whom it is instituted, for there is nothing required to insure Colonel Fremont's election but familiarity with his life, which like a key in one's pocket, grows brighter the more it is rubbed. .We are surprised that it did not occur to some of the . opposition senators, when Senator Bigler sat down, to invite senatorial inouirv into the use of the seal of the American legation, during Mr. Buch anan's mission in England, for the dissemi nation of red republican documents through Europe ; and in regard to the issue of free passes to abandoned women from the same legation; also, for a copy of the letter which Mr. Buchanan, while Secretary of Stole, wrote to Mr. Polk recommending $50,000 to be deposited in Simon Camer on s bank, for the purpose of being used to buy up the Washington Globe, and establish the Union newspaper in its place. This latter letter ia now on file in the depart ments at Washington. If contains suffi cient evidence, we are credibly informed, to send its author to state prison, under the subtreasury law, and was one of the grossest, if not the grossest case of malfeas ance in othce which has occurred since the Sub-Treasury law was passed.. Why is not that letter called for and produced, that the conntry may see the Kind of man that is presented and supported for the highest office in its gift by the whore combined forces of the general government, and for whom, yes, by whom, through an ignoble instrument the character and well-earned fame of one of our purest, bravest, and most useful citizens is wantonly and calumnjous- ly assailed t But it is not too late ; let us have that letter, and let us have it settled, whether a cabinet minister can lawfully use the funds of the general government to establish newspapers with; or whether the penalty of confinement in the state prison follows the transgressions of a Secretary of State, as well as of other persons in the employ of the general governmeut. .

He commenced first and went all through that campaign with signal suc cess, that ended in the acquisition of all that vast territory and wealth that opened up to American energy, such a field as has no parallel in history which has advanced this country 25 years at a single bound. Itgave us the facilities for increasing commerce. It enabled us to extend largely our railways and other internal improvements, and thus has greatly increased our manufacturing and agricultural interests, by enlarging the fields of produce and consumption. It has added hundreds of millions to the nation's capitaL By his exploratons he opened np the most central and convenient railroad to California. He aided in the organization of California as a State, and devoted her institution to Freedom,and she acknowledged her idebted ness to Faemont by sending him as her first Senator of the United States. His antece dents are American. ' He rose by his own energy, his own industry and his own merit These are antecedents that will be appreci ated by the American people. They are not promises of to-day of American princi ples under the expectation of the suffrages of the American party, but they are a his tory of his life from his youth upward, when actuated bv no other motives that a true American heart, thoroughly devoted to the interest of bis country. f Prominent Democrats.

The Cincinnati Convention having d- parted from the great highway of Repub lican Liberty, repudiated the Deinocracr of Jefierson and Jackson by endorsinc the sectional measures of the administration of ranklm Pierce, and adopted a platform destructive in its character to the interests of the whole conntry, I am confident that i? . v - . i . - . . . . repuaiaung tuat platform, and m yield ing a hearty support' to John C.
