Wlulo passing along the streets at any time of night political speeches cou'd be heaid and the excitement and ihu excited mu tiiudi s were no! allowed to sleep. The pitiful Miatehes of slumber which were vouch -safed to the citizens of Chiea- go and the eiowds of stranger which swaiiued everywhere, were broken by re peated cheering. The question arose in matiy minds wh"ro and whim does this iiuuicu-e multiiU'le take repose and it still remains unanswered. The halls tho sit. ting rooms the cmriiior.s and even the ste;sof the h.itiils were thronged with re cmibent figures who asidiiou!y courted iho drowsy God. but nn-t of th.-m iu v.iiu. Lucky was the wifiht who had secured a bed, although shan il by one, two or eveu three strangers. .Misery aud conventions make one acquainted with stranger bed - fellows.

We weic in formed tint tho donation to the fuud ul ready reached $10 000. Tho immense crowd of people which was in attendance al this contention shows plainly that peace is moro preferable than war. The sentiments ol every man wae peace, and when it was announced that Gen. George B. McClellan was nominated upou a peaco platform it seemed as if tho very walls of the city would fall under the mighty cheer ing of tho va.t multitude of people in and around the city. Every one immagiucd that he tould see the day fast approddi ing when wo would have peaco, ouoh a ono that the Angels ol Heaven would emllo upon. MoClellan is tho man for tho times. Tho Deinooraoy in the West is united to a man and their ranks are increasing dai ly by those who wero onco ardent support ers of the present Administration. Tho Western peoplo aro tired of war, thoy havo seen enough of their bravo boys slaughtered iu this unholy war.unholy ho causo it is for tho God ncoursed nigger. Tho people of tho South are as much for poace ao wo arc 1 was told hy men of rank from tho Confederacy at tho Clifton House in Canada West, that their only desire was fo.r peace, and if the Demo- cracy carried the day this fall and ollbrcd iiiom tneir right uuder tho Coinlitutinii they would insure us a re-union of the Slates. They think ''peace and union ' under Abraham Lincoln is an impossibil ity, for they regard him ai the embodi ment of tho war as the incarnation of the source of all they havo suffered, Thoy have no confidence in him nor have they reason to bcliovo that he is anything but ll eir most implacable enemy bo t upon doing them all tho harm in power. There is but ouo ponce ho can make, and that is peace preached hy Philips, Greeley, Sum ner and himself for years, namely a peace to be secured on tho basis of disunion. Tuc peop'o have just reason fur fearing lor tho result of any ot Lincoln's propo sitions for an armistice or supi nsiou of 1 hostilities, for the reason, they want peine with a restored union under the Constiiu tiou. So let every Duinocrat do his duty by votiug agaiuet Lincoln nnd placing a man in his stead who will restore our dis tracted country. E Pluiibus L'nnm Chicago, Sep. 2 18151.

They thought they might safely indulgo their passions and concluded to do so. They would not heed the warnings of our father, and they did not consider that inedd.ing begets strife. Their passions have wrought out their nat ural results.

It has ham- pored its own freedom of action by niicon stitutionalities. It caunot be said that the failure of its policy is duo to the want of courago and devotion on tho part of our armies. Never in the history of tho world hove soldiers given up their lives moro freely than havo those of the jinnies which have battled lor tho flag of our Union in tho southern states. Tho world will hold that they have dono all that arms cau do, and had wiso statesmanship scoured the fruits ol th.ir victories, to-day there would have hcou neaoe iu our land. But while our soldiers have desperately struggled to to carry our banners south to tho Gulf of Mexico, even now tlio government dcclaros, in the edict of a general, that rebellion discontent has worked northward to iho shores of the great lakes. The guaran teed rights of tho peoplo to boar arms has beon trampled under foot up to tho very borbers of Cauada, so that Amorioau sor vitudo is put in bold ooutrast with British liberty. Thia administration thus declares to the world that it has no faith in tho peoplo of the states whoso voto placed it in power. It also admits by such an edict that theso people have no laitli in this administration. While those in powor, uuhuut reiuutie, sacrifice th blood and treasures of ouf people, they well not give up their owu passions for tho public good, This Union is not held mnitidcr by milita- of tho humblest man iu our land, shull bo ry ambition. If our political troubles puuiihod by the full vigors of the law. It could bo referred to the peaceful arbitra- matters not whether ho sits in the Prosi men! ol tho coulcndiug armies iu the Geld ( dcutial chair or holds an humble offico uu- our Union would bo restored, the rights of the states would hoguaranteed,tho sacred tioss of homes and persons bo again re spected, and our insured judiciary would again administer the laws of tho land Lut not the ruin of our country be charged' leaned at tho outset of tho rebellion. Then to our soldiers. It is not due to their ' their hopes, even for their own personal teachings or their lanaticisin. In tho safety wcro upon tho noble men iu the bor consiand official intercourn with them I der state-i, who, uuder circutuctauces the have uevu i.-ard utiered oie sentiment ol ! ino-t (nine, tovercd fauiilv rclationshin hatred tow ids tin people ot tiie Souili Deyond all other uieu, they valuo the blessings of peace and tho virtues of mer oy,ol geutlciiess and of charity ,whilo tho.e who stay at home demand tint no mercy, charity, of forgiveness shall be shown. Tho history of fanaticism aud tho intrigues ofplacc-tncu have made tho bloody pages of the history of the past three years. It was a soldier upon whom our Savour be stowed his only conimondatiou when he hung upon the cross, and Pharisees mark ed his sufferings- It was a toldicr alone who discerned his divinity when he heard him pnur forth a prayer for morcyand forgiveness for tho authors ol his suffer ings. This administration cannot save this' Union, Wo can. Mr. Lincoln views many things above tho Union. Wo put the Union lirst of all. He thinks a proe 1 imation worth more than peace. We think the blood ol our people more pre cious lli-m the edicts of tlu Prcsideut. There ore no hinderanccs in our pathway to Union and to peace. We denund no conditions to the restoration of tho Union We are shackled with no hates no preju didis, no passions. We wish for fratornal relationship with the people of tho South, Wc demand for them what wo demand lor ourselves the full iccoguitinn of tho l ights of the states' We mean that any statson our uation's baniur shall shine with one and the same luster. In the coming elec tion, men must decide with which of the two panics into which our pcoplo aro di vided they will act. If they wish for Union they will art with that paity which will hold the Uuion together. 'J'hey w.ll set with th.it party which docs now, and always did, love and rever ence tuc union, it tney wish tor peace, the) will act with those who sought to avert this war, or who now sei k.s to re Store good-will and h irmony among all sections of our country. Ii they care for their rights, and for the sacred ncss of their homes, they will act with those who have stood up to resist arbitrary arrests, ties potic legislation, and the overthrow of the judiciary If upon tho other hand they aro willing to contiuue tho present policy the t'overtmient aud condition of affairs let them aet with that organization which made the prc-cut eouditson of our coun try. Thero are many good men who will be led to do this by their passions and ...

Gentlemen, I do trust that our proceed ings hero will be marked by harmony. I do earnestly believe that we shall bo ani mated by the greatness of this occasion. In all probability tho future destiny of our country hangs upon our action, Let th'i3 consideration inspire U3 with a spot of har mony. God of our F-ithers ble.s us now, lilt us up abore all personal consideration, fill us with a just idea of tho great responsibili ties whioh rest upon us, and givo again to our land its Union, it. tkace and its tin- l'.HTY. Loud aud enthusiastic cheers greeted Governor Seymour as he concluded his I olations of that sanctuary of popular lib speech, orly the ballot-bos.

With the Presidential election have been reduc- j pcace, personal aud political liberty, and ed by the comreting platforms to distinct the Constitution as it is emblazoned upon term? An honest digest of the resolutions adopted at tho L'altimore Comcution and of those adopted at tho Chicago Couven tion, will show theso to be few and well defined. "llcsolved," says tho Black Republican platform, '-That we approve the determin ation ol the Government of the United States not lo compionribc with rebels, not to offer any terms of peace except such as may bo based upon an unconditional sur. . r .i.:,. i, .,.i 1'ctirr ui mull MU3UIUIJ UUU U lUllllUlU their jtiat allegiance to the Consiiution and laws of the Uuited States, and that we call upou the Government to maintain this position and to vrosccute the war with the utmost possible vigor to tho complete suppression of the rebellion," etc. This shows Mr. Lincoln to stand before the country as tho candidate of subjugalion and war. The Chicago platform "Resolved, That this Conventiou does explicitly deolaro as the sense of tho Auiericnu people tint, af- er four yearr of failure to restore the Union by the expernicnt of war, etc, jus tioe, humanity, liberty , and tho public welfare demand that imniediato efforts be nude lor a cessation of hostilities, with a view to an ultimate convention of all the Slates, or other peaceable means, to tho cud that ut tho earliest practicable mo ment pcace may be restored," etc. This plank chows Gen. McClellan to stand be foro the country as tho candidate of con ciliation and peace The Rlaek Republicans deolaro them selves in their platform, "in favor, fur hcrmore, of such an amendment to tho Constitution to bo made by tho people in onformity with its provisions, as .hall terminato and forever prohibit tho rxis- tonGO f slavcrv within tho limits of the jurisdiction of tho United States." This plunk declares Mr. Lincoln to be, as the candidato of tht Radical Abolitionists, op- posed to tho Constitution as it is. The platform of the Democracy declares 1 ihc Constitution "tho onlv solid founda-" , This nlank places Gen. McClellan beforo tho pcoplo as the advocate of tho Consti tution as it exists. Tho Baltimoro platform affirms that tho Black RcpublioaiiB "upprovo and iudorso 1 a3 demanded by tho emcrgenoy, and es ( gent5al to tue preservation of Iho nation an(j as wit,jn tuQ Constitution, the mcas ( utcs and acts which he (Mr. Lincoln) Las adopted to defend the nation against its I open and secret foos.1' This clause places Mr. Lincoln before tho country as tho nd- . ... . , . vacate ol arbitrary arrcsu, of outrages on tho freedom of tho press, of violations of tho sanctity of tho ballot-box, and of his repeated overriding in theso States ot all civil and political rights. The Democratic platform "resolved that tho diroct intcrfcrcnoc of the military au thority of the United States in the rccont elections held in Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri and Delaware was a shameful vi olation of tho Constitution. ' Another of tho Chicago planks protests ogainst "tho arbitrary arrest,- imprisonment, trial and and seiitenco of American citizens in States wheto civil law exists in full force, tho suppression of tho freodom of speech nnd of the prcsi, tho employ ment of unusual test-oaths, and tho inter ference with, and the denial of, the right of the people to hear arms.1' Theso place General McClellan before tho country as tho advocate of all the lights of the citi zen, personal and political free speech, frco press, free suffrage and trial by jury, Mr. Lincoln, then, is tho candidate of Wir ; General McClellan is tho candidate of Peace. The Abolition nomiuce asks that ha ho allowed to force back the South, a desolation, by conquest ; tho Democrat ic candidate asks to win it back, a produc tive territory, by conciliation. Tho Djltimore nominee invites the peo ple to support him in his design to aboli tionizo the Constitution ; the Chicago nom inoo invito-) tho people to support him in his determination to maintain the Consti tution as it is. Mr. Lincoln asks the country to com mend, while General McClellan asks it to co(cmn,(iutragea ou tho freodem of speech and of the press, incarceration of citizens by military violence, aud high handed vi our standard, we go into the contest, our hearts swelling with uudoubting hopo that draws its inspiration from a profound con fidence in the intelligence, the virtue, and the love of liberty of the people.

Swapping Horses A Little Story. The illustrious widow maker now en throned at the Y hito Houso in Wnshiog ton,has niado a joke into an uphorifm.and for tho third time in life calls npthc story of swapping horses when crossing a slrsam. To judge from the elongated inouarob'a sly reference to tho cquino quadruped, onff would infer that he was born in m stable, which may account for his unstable char acter. He says it is a bad tirao to swap horses when crossing a stream, yet hau applied his argument to others in lull ro versal. Wo aro willing to agree with Abo that ordinarily Hpeaking it is bad to swap horses while crossing. But when tho horse insisted that he could cross in threo months when the keeper of tho horao assured the country that no one would ba hurt by crossing when the three mouths had gone into lour years when insleau of crossing the st;t m directly ho Iiuj beeu carried far bmn. ih" .-tartiug poiut, and lost .sight ot the. landmarks he struck out for when he has changed his course, and instead 01" making acres- . stream goos plunging wildly down inio the sea ol de struction when a million of his grooms men bavo been lost by him -when tho granary of his keepers is exhausted when every original plan except "my plan" ii lost sight of, we think it time lo swap. When crossing tho stream it may he well enough to hold on but when going dowu the stream, and each day tho is growing wider,till its banks are lost in thodistanoe, il is timo to swap. But let us see if tho national sexton has lived up to his tripletsd ideas. When thin war broke out he swapped the counsels of Douglas for those of Seward. He swapped tho vigor of America for tho emasculated weakness of Spain. Ho swapped Mc Dowell for McClellan crossing the Poto mac. Ho swapped McClellan lor Bum side when crossing the Ilapp ihauuoek He swapped Burnside for Hooker crossing the same stream. He swapped Hooker for Meade crossing tho Potomac. He Bwapped Meade for Grant crossing tho Rupidon. He swapped Butler tin. beast for Uauks the blundwrer uro-sing the mouth, of the Mississippi. He swapped Bank for Cauby crossing tho lied river.
