ETEXTXO RESflOX. v j
Col. Stokes, from the Committee on Reso
lutions, reported the following ' : -
V ADDRESS AND RE3OL0TIOXS : - v
The members of this Convention, chosen
III primary meetings of the people hrtbeir
respective coautis. and representing the j
sentiments and opinions of all those, whether
Whigs, Democrats . or Americans in. times j
past, wlio view with" concern nd nt with
out elarm, the present political condition of ;
the country, have convened for the purpose
of takiryj counsel together, and to adopt such
measures as may appear best, to awaken the
Meepfng powers snd aroose the indifferent to
a snse of the impending dangers, and to
unite their energies to pare the country from
the disorganizing and revolutionary spiritof
tbe times. Tbey believe that the time has
come snd will not brook postponement, when
if ever, the progress of abuses and erri!p
' Hons in our Government which all history
phnws are the parents and forerunners of re
volution and anarchy, may be stayed, if tbey
cannot be eradicated.
That we rosy not be accnsd of exaggera
ting the extent of tbe existing abuses and
diorders in the body politic, and of overrat
ing their disastrous and baneful consequen
ces, ft lrief enumeration and description of
some of the more prominent of them, will be
submitted to the judgment of tbe people, who
alone can apply a remedy.
A little more than thirty years aeo the
editor r.f a newFpper in New Hampshire,
who had rudely as-ailed the character of a
' Secretary of State, was denied the publisb
Ingof the laws of Congress, a job inrisnificant
in value, which had been accorded to him
nnder previous administration!. This was
denounced at-the time by the whole opposi
tion as an act of tyranny and abuse of execu
tive patronage n attack npon the freedom
of the press upon liberty itself, in poisoning
the fountain from which was derived one of
its chief supports. At this day, strange as
it may appear, without any change in the
form of Government, important public offices
. are frequently bestowed upon tbe proprie
tors and editors of puWie journals in tbe
'interests of tbe administration, and jobs and
contracLs meted out to them, or the profits of
them, amounting sometimes to thousands,
distributed among them without scruple, and
under Executive influence snd direction. '
Under the maxims and teachings ot J.-fter-.
son. confirmed by the jractice of Madison,
Monroe and J. Q. Adams, the freedom of po-
litical opinion whf held to be of so sacred and
important a character in a Republic thut in a
' period of thirty years proscription or remov.
' als from office for opinion's sake w re un
known. During the same p-ri.id of lime the
. preservation of the purity and independence
' of the elective franchise was held to be so im-
portant that the interference of Federal Offi
cers in eb-ction-i. Stale or National, was for
bidden according to the teaching of Jeff r
son, who announced that such inteifc-rcuce
would be held just cause of removal.
. But soonnfur the close of the period to
which reference has been made, the whole
some doctrines and t-entiinents -f JiS'ctson
and of his immediate successors upon those
important subjects, lost much ot their force
and re-p'-ct with the public.
The first departure from them by the pop
. ular Cbief of a new Administration found
I excuse among his followers in the fierce as
saults made upon his private character by his
opponents in the canvass which had termina
ted in his election ; and justification in the
speci-.il circnmstanc. sof cachcase of removal.
Jiut in time, under various plausiole pre
texts, particularly that which awuni'-d that
the retrenchment of expenditures, and re
form of abuses pronied by the President in
Li- first inaugural address could not be carried
nt union the public offices and employments,
ministerial, as well as political and adminis
trative, should be in the hands of his frl-nds
and supporters the injunctions of Jeff rson
ceased to b; refp' Ci'.tl, and the wholesale pio-scripti.-n
which followed the discovery of this
n. cessiiy, led, in the end, to the introduction
of a long train of abuses in the exercise of
the appointing power in the distribution of
excutive patronage and to a practical ope
ratiou of the government mbversive of the
spirit ai.d intention of the Constitution. The
freedom once conceded to the officeholders as
well us all older citizens to nppiove or cen
sure the acts and measure" of an administra
tion as their judgment and conscience rniht
dic'ate, can now be exercised ouly und. r the
penally of fori it lire of office. A fealty due
to the country and its government from all
cit'zeus in th. ir case is now held to be trans
for red to a political Chief, or to a party. No
polit'Ciil hertsy, no matter how mischievous
and dangerous, even tho? it ainls at the de
struction of the Constitution no violation
of solemn pi. dges or duties is held to becnue
of exclusion from, or appointment to, office,
proxid.-d the essential point of honor is raved
in bearing true all. giiuice to party.
A jealously with which tbe freedom of
elections, and the purity of the elective fran
chise was once guarded auuist the influence
of the executive power and tbe interference
of federal officers in elections is no longer
r- cognized by Unite who have the control of
Htlaiis ot any impoiYauce to the preservation
of be" institutions.
Under the operation of a new maxim in
dispensing executive patronage, thatto the
vie tor bloiigs. the hpoils,"' the maxims of
Ji llersoii have bei n reversed aud a new ten
ure of fliee prescribed, not knowu by the
Constitution. Ofliee hold, rs are expected
and required to interfere actively in elections
under penalty ol .iinn s al, and thus the
whole corp of civil officer and employees
and their depiMidt-uts. a huudrcd thousand or
more in nuuilx-rs, dispersed over the couutry
constitute a t-taudiug political police force,
trained bands, disciplined to any service
which may be r quired iu upholding ti.e par
ty in power.
At every Collector's office in e large
cities ut every post office in ev. ry city,
and respectable village in the land may tie
found a political club room from whence
issue niitw-ives gtvti.g instructions to the
faithful.
The purity of the electire franchise in the
piesetit lime is not exempt from tbe tempta
tions and inQueuces of pecuniary bribes, with
ex-cntive connivance.
It is notorious that a per centage of tbe
salaries, of Federal office-holders has been fre
quently, if not regularly, assessed and col
lected, to raise a bind to be transmitted to
whatever Stale, or Congressional District it
may be deemed necessary to enable. the par
ty to carrv an election. And, thus, M.rtion
of the public revenue derived from the peo
ple, tfiis of thousands in amount, are turned
im. i a corruption fund, to stifle tbe voiced
and defeat the will of the honest and iude
Kndent voters.
Th. se evils aud abuses, great and gross
as they manifestly are, may be tolerated and
liberty may survive, and the country may
prosjirr for a season, while the great body of
the people continue untainted by corruption;
but how long that sea-on may be. will depend
upon the operation of some of tbe iudircct
and more remote consequences ot tbe abuses
above. enumerated. Tiie maxims observed
and piartiu-d upou iu tbe distribution of the
spoils for the last quar.er of a century, has
undoubtedly lowered th stand ird of public
morals, and diU'us d a mercenary spirit over
the country.
Lured by the magnitude of the spoils, tbe
rewards of partisaa services, thousand take
to politics as a protess.on. a trade, a liveli
hood. An irmy of politic l mercenaries and
adventurers is thus recruited, who, by con
certed action, is often able to control the
mon important elections, and when success
ful, virtually acquire the direction and con
trol of public affairs.
Most of the best and ablest men of the
couutry, under mch citcumstance. retire la
d sgust from the field of politics tbe public
offices, are lor the most part filled with iuo
raut and incompetent prtixaa, without oth
er merit. Tbe abls aud patriotic men who oc
casionally fl id a place in ih cabinet, and oth
ers who occupy m ats in Congress cannot ruH
or give tone to a.Talr; they are geuerally
overruled by the Z maves of their own party.

a high order of abilitv.rftn give but Utile at

: When tbe publia oQces aad employneBts

that tbey are political pv tizansand support
ers of the party in power, can" form no just
ground of complaint. Bat whea honest and

who have no. adequate qualifications for tbe
offlces .or duties to which tbey are assigned,
and no other-merit than-tbeir capacity to be
serviceable to tbe party, or to the ambitious
aspirations of tbe President, or other high
officer by whom he was employed, is a corrupt
aba -e of power.
Whatever well fonnded objections may exist
to the maxim that "to the victors belong tbe
spoils," it baa been too long acquiesced In,
and too firmjy engrafted to be suddenly
changed. If ever changed, it muse be
work of time; bat it is to be hoped, that for
the honor' of Republican Institutions, that
tbe abuses and corruptions which have arisen
from the manner in which the maxim has
been made to operate in practice, may be
speedily corrected.
. Dut tbe correction of the various abnses in
the admiiil-tration of tbe government, impor
tant as it is to tbe honor and welfare of the
country, sinks into comparative insignifi
cance when we turn to the overshadowing
evil, the practical and paramount question
of the day and of the times. It is not a ques
tion of abuses in the practice of tbe govern
ment, it is a question concerning the existeuce
ot the government itself, which has been
brought into imminent peril of dissolution
by the same causes and influence.which have
hastened the downfall of all pn ceding Re
publics. In an evil hour and at a time of
rare tranquility and ex-mption from party
strife and excitement the result of the com
promise. mensnre of 1850, tbe Missouri Com
promise line of 1820 was repealed. It would
be useless to point out or suggest the motives
and designs of the authors of that unfortunate
measure, be they what they may, the effect of
the measure was to kindle a flame of resent
ment in all the free States and to renew
with ten fold violence the sectional strife and
discord upon . ihe subj.-ct of tdav.-ry which
had been so happily quieted iu 1850.
It is needless to recount the the means and
devices by whxh tbe agitation thus re-commenced
was continued and even increased in
intensity, until now, when we find two pow
rrful parties confronting each other, the one
in the North and the other in the South, con
tending b-titiat. l v for the power and con
trol of the Gov- rnmentupon a sectional issue
the right ot the South under tbe Constitu
tion to carry slavery into the Territories and
to have it protected there by Congress, being
tbe Southern ride of tbe issue, and the right
of the North, under the Constitution, to pro
hibit slavery- in the Territories, being the oth
er sideof the i8iie; practically, and in effect,
abstractions both, at the present time, in
the opinion of many of the most enlightened
men of the Country North and South. N v
ertheless, the same motives and causes wh'cU
originated the controversy, operate with ihe
same force to keep it alive. The sec ional
bate and alienation engendered in the pro
tracted stt ileadd greatly to the difficulties in
restoring the wonted btrmonv of the coun
try; and to make the prospect of accomplish
ing that great and desirable and dill more
gloomy, the power and influence of the spoils
principle operate with their usual effect in
etimulatiug the antagonistic parties to put
loi lu ull iheir energies iu muiutaiiiiug the
conflict. All these circumstances combined
have cieat-d p uuful anxieties as to the fill ure
in tbe minds of thousands of patriotic cii
zens iu both sections. It is wor e than idle
to nay that the Union is in no danger.
It may In: mischievous to lull i.he p-ople
into security, by proclaiming that the Union
cauuol b- dissolved that the a sociati.nis of
the past the anticipation of the glorious
destiny which awaits us as a nation will pre
vent ii--that tbe ties of kindred blood ol a
common lineage a nd language will prevent
it that the . normily of the crime of disunion
against mankind will prevent it, aud lhat if
nothing else t-Lould vail, ihe magnitude ol
the material iuterests dependent upon the
preservation of the Uuiou will prevent its dis
memb riucnt. The Union cannot be saved
by such t.aching. It should be rememWred
that the tics of blood and natural affection
ure often broken by repeated wrongs that a
family quarrel, of all othciw, when eutered
upou, is the most bitter and relentless that
a sentiment ol ten proves stronger as uraoti.-e
to action than materia! interest. Nol Tbe
safety of the Uuiou depend upon the united
uciK'U aud eneigiesof all good men, North
and South, and w ith tht blessing of the God
of our fathers upon iheir efforts the Uuioii
can und will be preserved.
Resolved. Tuerefore", by the Delegates of the
people ot Tennessee, in Cuiiventiou assembled,
thai we will unite with all good men every
where, aud devote ftll our energies to main
tain and ei petuale the Uuiou under the Con
stitution as ii is
RefJved, That the true test of devotion to
the Uniou is the practice of-ready obedieuce
to the requirements of the Con-lituiion.
RrcJv,d, That the continued agitation of
tbe slavery question, while it promises no
profitable reHult to any section, is fraught
with iutiiiite mischiefs to the whole country
injurious to all material interests ret aiding
moral progress impairing Ihe National
character abroad presenting the aspect of
wen kn ess, from incurable dissent ions ut home
and thereby inviting insults aud uggreion
from foreign powers; imperilling the peace
of theouiitry, the stability of the Union, uud
that it outfit therefore to cease.
KenUced, That we are opposed to direct
taxation, and in lavor of a tariff adequate to
the expenses of an economical administration
of the General Government, with specific
duties where opplicble, discriminating iu
favor ot America;! labor.
les'Jred. That the Hon. John Dell, iu tbe
opinion of this Convention, possesses superior
qualifications for the office- of President hi
long und distinguished public services his
broad and expensive patriotism his un
swerving devotion to the Uniou an.LheCon
s'i'.uiiou through all phases of his political
fortune, entitle him to our warm coutideuce
and support.
We Continent him to our fellow citizens every
