RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PROMINENT

From the Sunday Delta.
The undersigned citizens of
Louisiana, in view of the approach
of tho Presidential Campaign for
1876, and recognizing tbe fact that
in that campaign there can be but
two parties, the Republican and

From til* Commonwealth.
The democracy of Maryland has
made a hickory-planked platform.
We congratulate Senator Whyte
that when he rises in the Federal
Senate to defend the great princi
S les of tbe democraoy of Jefferson,
sekson, snd Benton, ho can point
to the platform of principles of his
State, snd speak as becomes a
Senator in the American Senate.
Tbe " old times " are coming back.
Carroll for Governor, ex-Governor
Whyte in tbe 8enate of the United
States, and an old hickory plat
form. Got! bless " My Maryland."
Tbe following platform was
'unanimously reported by tbe Com
mittee on Resolutions and unan
imously adopted by tbe conven
First. We do hereby declare our
unfaltering devotion to those car
dinal principles of republican gov
ernment enunciated by Thomas
Jefferson in language so clear that
it cau uot be improved Upon, to
wit : " Equal and exact justice to
all men, of whatever state or per
suasion, religious or political ; the
supnort of the State governments
in all their rights as the most com
petent administration for our do
mestic concerns, and the surest
bulwark against anti-republican
tendencies ; the preservation of tbe
General Government in its whole
constitutional vigor as the sheet
anchor of our peace at home and
safety abroad ; the supremacy of
tbe civil over the military author
ity; economy in the public ex
penses, that labor may be lightly
burdened ; the honest payment of
our debts and the sacred preserva
tion of the public faith ; the diffu
sion of information, and the ar
raignment of nil abuses at the bar
of public leuson ; freedom of reli
gion ; freedom of tbe press ; free
dom of the person, ander tbe pro
tection of tue habeas corpus ; and
trial by jury impartially selected."
Second. Pledged to this creed of
political faith, we do further re
solve that we protest against tbe
burdens of a high proteotive tariff
as needless exactions from a peo
ple intolerably oppressed by a gi
gantic national debt, and that we
insist that the tariff be so regu
lated as to provide only a sufficient
revenue for general uses and not
for the purpose of enriching the
few at the expense of the many;
that we protest against tbe multi
plication of Federal offices, the as
signment to them of unusually
high salaries, and the abuses of
Federal patronage, which tend to
corrupt the States and to corrupt
Third. That agriculture, manu
factures, aud commerce should be
the equal care of well-regulated
governments; obstructions to any
of them should be removed, but no
favoritism should be extended to
either at tho expense of the others;
that labor and capital are mutually
dependent, and equal justice de
mands that legislation should, as
far as practicable, harmonize their
conflicts, and prevent the one from
oppressing or obtaining undue ad
vantage over the other.
Fourth. That we protest against
any increase of tho ffirculatiug cur
rency, but demand that such
measures be adopted by Congress
as will result in the resumption of
specie payment at the earliest pos
Fifth. That we are opposed to
tho granting of subsidies to rail
road or steamship companies, or
other monopolies, as unwarranta
ble in law, corrupting in tendency,
aud utterly subversive of the prin
ciples of good republicau govern
