SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 7, I85G,
BUCHANAN AND BRECKENRIDGE.
With this number of oar paper we commence
ho great contest for the Presidency. The demo
cratio candidates are in the field. We await only
the nominations of onr formidable adversaries, the
Black Ttepublicacs. Their Covention assembles in
Philadelphia on the 17th inst., and will no doubt
be largely attended.
The name of James Buchanan is a familiar
Eonnd by every hearth-stone. He has been a com
peer of the great men of our nation for many years.
HiB biography forms an important chapter in
American history. There is an abiding confi.
denco in every man's heart in his patriotism and
nationality. Since Webster, Clay, Calhoun and
Polk have died, we have but one statesman, Lewis
Cass, of his enlarged experience. His fame will
.endure a3 long as the Federal Arch, of which his
noble State is tho key-stone.
We do not exaggerate when we eay that John
0. Bbickenridqe is the most popular man of his
age in the Union. Added to those personal graces
which have made him a peculiar favorite with the
people of his native State, Kentucky, he has com
bined talent of the highest order. No man ever
won fame so rapidly for the short time he has been
in public life. In 1851 he was elected by a large
majority over one of the ablest politicians in the
State, the Hon. Leslie Comb3, to' represent the old
Ashland district in Congress. At the next elec-
tioD, Ex-Gov. Letcher, one of the most popular
and talented men of Kentucky, was brought for
ward for the express purpose of reinstating the
Ashland district. Thousands of dollars were said
to have been sent from other States to aid in his
defeat, such was the anxiety of the opposition to
wrest Mr. Clat's old district from his control.
There never was, perhaps, a Congressional election
of equal excitement and interest Breckenridge
again triumphed over all opposition, and we believe
by an increased majority. In the very noon of
life, his mind and energies are fully developed for
the greatest usefulness.
THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
Tho following resolutions, having been report
- ed by telegraph, are of course very imperfect, but
embody tho substance of tho Democratic Plat
form. The five- additional resolutions subsequent
ly adopted, upon foreign policy, we omit to-day
for want of time to put them in type. We will
give them hereafter:
Resolved, That the foundation of the union of
those States having been laid in its prosperity, ex
pansion, and tho pre-eminent example of free gov
ernment, built upon entire freedom of religious
matters, acknowledging no respect of person in
regard to rank, placi, or birtb, no party can justly
be deemed national, constitutional, or in accord
ace a with American principles, which bases its ex
clusive organization upon religious opinions or ac
cidentia! birth-place. Hence, the political crusade
in the nineteenth century in the United States
against Catholics and foreign-born citizens, is nei
ther justified by past history or the future prospects
of the countiy; nor Is it in unison with the spirit
or toleration of the enlarged freedom which pecu
liarly distinguishes the American system of popu
Resolved, That we reiterate the renewed energy
of purpose and the well-considered declarations of
former conventions upon the sectional issue, do
mestic slavery, concerning the reserved rights of
the States, which are as follows :
1. That the Federal Government is one of limit
ed powerp, derived solely from the Constitution,
and the grants of power shoron therein ought to
be strictly construed by all the Departments and
Agents of the Government; and that it is inex
pedient and dangerous to exerciEe doubtful con
2. Tnat the Constitution does not confer upon
the General Government the power to commence
and cairy on a general system of internal improve
ments. 3. That tho Constitution does not confer author
ity, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of
the several States, contracted for local internal im
provements, or other State purposes; nor would
such assumption be just and expedient,
4. That justice Bnd sound policy forbid the
General Government to foster one branch of in
dustry to the detriment of another, or to cherish
the interest of one portion to the injury of ano
ther portion of our common country; that every
citizen of every section of the country has a right
to demand and insist upon on equality of rights
and privileges, and comnlete and amDle Drotection
of persons and property from domestic violence
or foreign apgression; and, that we may more dis
tinctly meet the issue on which a sectional party,
subsisting exclusively on slavery agitation, now
relies, we appeal to the fidelity of tho people
North and South to the Constitution and Union.
Resolved, That, claiming fellowship with and de
siring the co-operation of all in regard to the preser
vation of the Union under tho Constitution and tho
paramount issue, repudiating all sectional parties
and platforms concerning slavery, which eeek to
embroil the States nnd incite treason and armed re
eistacce to law in the Territories, whose avowed
purposes if con'ummated must end in civil war and
disunion, the American Democracy reorganize and
adopt the principles contained in the organic laws
establishing tha Territories of Kansas and Nebras
ka, embodying the only sound and safe solution of
the slavery question upon which great national
idea the people of the whole country can repose
its determined conservatism of the Union, non-interference
by Oongresi with slavery in the States
and Territories or m the District of Columbia; that
this was the basis of tlie compromises of "50, which
are confirmed by both the Democratic and Whig
parties, announced by both national conventions,
ratified by tho people in tbe election of '52, and
rightly applied to the organization of Territories in
'54. And that by the uniform application of this
Democratic principle to tne organization of Terri
tories, and to the admission of new States, with
or without slavery, a3 tbey may el?ct, equal rights
of all State3 will be preserved intacr, the original
compact of the Constitution maintained inviolate,
the perpetuity and expansion of the Union insured
to its utmost capacity, embracing in peace and har
mony every future American State, which may be
constituted or annexed with a republican form of
Resolved, That we recognize tho right of the
people of all the Territories, including Kansas and
Nebraska, acting through tho legality and fairly
expressed will of a mtjority of actual residents,
and whenever the number of inhabitants justifies
it, to form a Constitution with or without slavery,
thsy should be admitted into the Union upon terms
of perfect equality with ctber States.
Resolved, finally, That from the condition of the
popular institutions of the O d World, their dan
gerous tendencies to eectional aeitaticn aud a com
bined attempt to enforce civil and religious disabil
ities, against the rights ot acquiring and enjoying
citizenship in our own land, a nigh nod sacred duty
has devolved and an increased responsibility rests
upon the democratic party of this country as the
party of the Union to uphold and maintain the
right of every State, that thereby the Union of the
Statoj may be sustained and advanced; and among
us we intend to preserve constitutional liberty, by
continuing to resist all monopolies and exclusive
Jegislation for the benefitof the few af,the expense
of the many, and by vioiknt and constant adhe
rence to those prineiplesaad compromises of tho
constitution which are brbsd aud stronjjenough to

THE PROSPECT OF TUK tUTCRE-BLACK RE
PUBLICANISM IN THE SOUTH.
The opposition elements have not yet adjusted
themselves, and are not likely to do so until the
Black Republican Convention, at Philadelphia,
shall have assembled, and Mr. Fillmore having re
turned home, surveys the grounds and calculates
tbe chances of an election. Tho object of those
who appear to have controlled the fortunes of the re
cent know-nothing convention seems to hare been,
to combine all tho elements of opposition into oco
party against theDemocracy; and to this end yielded
the making of a platform to the North, and, the
selection of candidates to the South. Having
abrogated the 12th section, or slavery plank of last
year, which pledged them to abide by the laws as
tbey now exist, and having denounced the repeal
of the Missouri Compromise, one of their Vice
Presidents very naturally telegraphed to the other
Convention, then sitting at Pittsburg, "Hoist the
Republican banner1 the Americans are with you."
Having, on the other hand, nominated Fillmore
and Donelson, Gen. Zollioojter dispatched his
friends in Tennessee in a manner equally cheering
for the South. One member from the North feu"
citated the Convention that the platform was so
covered over with verbiage that they could elect a
President before the country would know what it
contained. Another from the South swore lustily
that the Convention, by ballot, had abolished all
platforms. Thus arranged, they returned among
their constituents of northern free-soilers, and
southern slave-holders, to sec how far the rank and
file could be brought to harm'oniza with their ac
tion. Mr. Evans, of Massachusetts, informed his
Black Republican constituents that they could most
effectually serve " the cause of freedom " by sup
porting the nominees and adhering to tho action of
the know-nothing convention. Lewb D. Campbell,
tho Black Republican from Ohio, attempted to in
dicate to his cons'ituents at home the propriety of
adhering to the Philadelphia action, by accompa
nying Senator Crittenden to the great ratification
meeting at Washington, and officiating as an orato:
on the occasion. At the same time, Southern
gentlemen have made speeches'and addressed let
ters to their constituents at home, urging a cordial
acquiescence in the movement that had been made.
and a fusion of all the elements of opposition to
Some months have now elapsed, and the fusion,
upon the basis proposed, has not yet succeeded.
The great body of the Black Republican know
nothings of tho North have refused to follow the
course marked out for them until they could have
some additional pledges from Mr. Fillmore and his
friends. A large number of the know-nothings
in the extreme South have proven equally refrac
Thus dissolved and disjointed, something must
bo done or know-nothingism is a nonentity,
What that action will be, as suggested in tbe out
set of this article, depends upon the development
of the next few weeks. And after having care
fully and impartially observed the indications,
diversified in their character, coming from various
quarters, we have arrived at this conclusion : that
if the Black Republican Convention, soon to E3
semble, shall adopt moderate Free Soil resolutions
and nominate a moderate Free Soil candidate, Mr.
Fillmore will decline the nomination tendered him;
for the reason that such a candidate and platfcrm
would unite and concentrate the entire Free Soil
or Black Republican forces. But should that Con
vention (as Mr. Fillmore and his friends will, we
think, most anxiously desire) adopt an ultra anti-
slavery platform and nominate a candidate in keep
ing with it, Mr. Fillmore will accept; for the rea
eon that he may then expect to receive large ac
cessions to his forces from the more moderate
A good proportion of the Black Republican
vote at the North are not abolitionist, proper ; but
are only opposed to the Kansas bill, in favor of
re-establishing the Missouri Compromise line, and
the consequent admission of Kansas as a Free
State. To such men Mr. Fillmore and his party,
with increased chances for success, would be moie
acceptable, than an ultra Black Republican nomi
nee, with probable chances of defeat
With a view to such a contingency, the Fill
more papers in the South are trying to prepare the
minds of their southern readers; and to these in
dications and their consequences, we desire to di
rect the attention of the public.
It will be remembered that last summer the
American Organ, at Washington, led off in a vio
lent tirade against the act repealing the Missouri
restriction and proposing its restoration. The same
position was taken by the Louisville Journal and
tacitly endorsed by the Banner of this city. At
that time, however, the great body of the people
Sonth were cordially supporting the act as emin
ently just to our rights, and none but tbe old
stagers of the know-nothing forces could foresee
what was likely to be the precise condition of par
ties to-day. Consequently many did not catch
the cue of the Organ and Journal. The next step
was, shortly before the meeting of the last Con
vention, to entirely " ignore" the slavery question
as a matter in issue. The less intriguing and les3
discerning of the South, generally, repudiated that
also. But the course of the Philadelphia Conven
tion, and all tbe events that have since transpired,
have clearly manifested that know-nothingism
will be crushed out and lost in the approaching
contest, unless by some means it can still rely up
on the North for its principal support. Conse
quently the Richmond Whig, the Baltimore Patriot,
and the Nashville Patriot, no doubt to the surprise
of many of their readers, are gradually shifting
their positions from favor to that of hostility to
the Kansas bill, and a strong sympathy in behalf
of its opponents. The Baltimore Patriot says:
"By its support of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, the
Administration has "sown the wind," and must be
prepared to "reap the whirlwind."
"Nothing more insidiously injurious could have
been offered to Southern acceptance, nor can our
sister States ever hope to recover their pristine
vigor until they strip themselves of the rankling thing
and slwikeloose from the embraces of those who have
wrought so great an evil not to the South alone, but
to the whole Union."
Tnat " the policy advocated by the Executive,
and sustained by MeBsrs. Cass and Douglas, is only
calculated to produce that fearful condition of
things, which, at the present time, is so strikingly
exemplified in Kansas."
"We see a solemn compact recklessly ignored,
and the whole question of slavery extension, or
non-extension, thrown open anew to become the
shuttlecock of sectional battledore?.
We see armed hordes of border men from Missouri
accepting the guage of battle, thus tacWy thrown down,
and violating the right of suffrage by the force of
"That fair Council Chamber of the nation which,
during fifty year, had witnessed many stormy dis
cussions, but never a single scene of actual violence",
has, at length, been the scene of an assault from
which one of its members via carried out bleeding and
"These, thu3 far have been a few of the results
of the rash intermeddling wuh the Missouri Com
promise. A new order of things has been in
augurated, but whether for the better or the worse
let the people judge.'-'
"The time ia now approaching when it will be
come the duty, of the citizens of the Republic either
to confirm this power, in the hands of its present
possessors, for another presidential term, or to
transfer it to rival claimants."
Such is the unpatriotic and unmanly assault
which a paper, published among slave holders,
makes upon Pierce, Cass and Douglas, for their
bold defence of our equal rights and such the aid
and comfort, to conserve a party end, it willingly
extends to the treasonable Saaaticismof the NjrtK
Maryland, bering uponthe free States, black
republicanism, hes obtained a foot hojd'amocg her
people ; and we were Jes3 surprLscd.feierefore, to
extract such language from a, Baltore -Journal
' than to find a similar tone manifesting I self in Ten
f rie?sec. If vc mistake not, a good deal of the same
eeung wa3 indicated jna tecent editorial of, the
Patriot of this city, beaded "The Kansas Imbrog
lio," The'general bearing and purport of which
wo?, that if? would not attempt "to decie'e which of
the parties, (abolitionists or Southerners,) to tho
recent controversies and blocdy collisions in Kan-
sas, was right" rut that every one was. chagrined
tt their occurrence, except "tha clas3 of persons
(at the South) that have been industriously labor
ing for years past to effect a disruption of the gov
ernment.'' Now we undertake to say that there
are very few men in the South, who, unless they
are either black republicans themselves, or aro
seeking to curry favor with that faction, could not
very readily decide whether the Southerners or
abolitionists in the recent Kansas difficulties
were right; and who, instead of charging
that there was a class of men at the South
that have been industriously laboring for years to
ditrupture the government, would not have much
preferred defending our own people, and exposing
tha treasonable designs of the free-State rebels in
Kansas. Tho Patriot proceed) with the idea that
these great "wrongs," and "reproaches" upon
our republican institutions are all attributable to the
party now in power. Whilst it has not the bold
ness to make the charge distinct, It leaves it as a no
cessary inference; winding-up with tha appeal
that " if the conservative elements of the nation
would save the ship of State from inglorious wreck,
they must get together and'man her with a crew that
can navigate her through kthe dangers that are
ahead. " The dangers that are ahead, and which
the Patriot so much deplores, is thus set forth in
the article referred to. If wehavejnot seen the
identical language, we know we have seen the
precise sentiments an hundred times expressed by
the Black Republican papers of the North.
" Toe immediate effect of the hostilities in Kan
sas will probably be an abandonment of the terri
tory by the greater portion of the free State emi
gration, and the cessation of further emigration
horn the North. Men from tho North who con
template residing permanently in tbe territory,
will not be willing to incur the risks of life and pro
perty which attend residence there, and they will seek
other and more peacetol fields for the exercise of
their uidustrt and enterprise. Kansas, by this
ptocess, may become a slave State, and then will
come the tug of war. It is to be expected that
tne JNortn, wun ner numerical superiority, goaded
by her fanatics, and exasperated by being driven
from the territory by force, will consent to admit
her into the Union? WhcEoaver thinks she will,
has read the "history of tne Missouri controversv
to little profit At that time the North had no such
plea as she will have in the case of Kansas, and we
may depend upon it, she will resist to tha last-
Ana will not tbis bring up the issue which tbe ul
tra abolitionists and ultra slaveholders mcst desire
the issue of a dissolution of the Union? Tb.3
feuds in Kansas now are but precursors of the
coming storm. If the conservative elements of the
nation would save the skip of state from inglorious
wreck, they must gather together and man her with o
crew that can navigate her through the dangers which
It is a most singular conclusion for a Southern
man to cone to, that these bloody rebels, these
dark-minded traitors, who have gone to Kansas
-with murder in their hearts and Sharp's rifles in
their hands, the dirty tools of Abolition fanatics,
sent by tbe New England "Emigrant Aid Socie
ties," tor the openly avowed purpose of interfering
with the peaceful settlement of that territory, and
forcing it into the Union as a free State in advance
of natural causes, have gone there for purposes c
" industry and enterprise," and that, " afraid to in
cur the risk of life and property which attend a re
sidence there," " will seek other and more peaceful
fields for its exercise!' "Kansas, by this pro
cess" says our neighbor, "may become a slave
State," but he thinks it a deplorable process ; aud
that the North, with her numerical superiority can
not be expected, thus "exasperated by being
driven from the territory by force," to admit her
into the Union ; bat that " she will resist to the
last." Now we beg to differ with the Patriot, and
all the Black Republican papers that maintain the
same position, that the Northern people have been
driven from the territory by force, if they allude to
any other force than that of the General Govern
ment in maintaining the laws, or to any other peo
pie than those fugitives from justice who have
fled from the territory to escape the penalty of the
law for their treasonable conduct It is an insult
to Southern people for which Sumneb, in part, was
struck down in the Senate, and which no Southern
editor, from party zeal, should so much forget him
self as to repeat 0
Tha Patriot thinks that the South will not get off
as easy this time as in 1820, when the Missouri
Compromise was adopted; "for at that time,"
says that paper, "the North had no such plea as
she will have in the case of Kansas." Again wr
take issue with the Patriot, and all the Black Re
publican papers of the North, and deny in the name
of the Southern people that the North has any
"plea" now that she did not have then. She had
none then, and she has none now. It is the North
that has been waging this eternal warfare upon
her sister Southern States. In the language of
Gen. Cass, in his recent great speech in the Senate,
" The South intermeddles not with the social in
stitutions of the North ; let the North exhibit the
same spirit of toleration, and we shall be the
strongest and most contented, as we are the freest
nation on the globe."
Wo cannot extend our comment. Our desire is
to show the preparation being made upon the part
of leading supporters of Mr. Fillmore in the
South, for a union with the less violent portion of
the Black Republican party in the North.
We gave some days ago the proof of Mr. Ha
ven, of New York, the law partner and intimate
and confidential adviser of Mr. Fillmore as also
that of Jno. P. Kenneot, of Maryland, his former
Secretary of the Navy, to the fact that he (Fill
more) was opposed to tbe Kansas-Nebraska act,
and especially the repeal of- tbe Missouri Compro
mise line. This fact, taken in connection with the
foregoing preparation upon the part of tbe South
ern pres3 to which we have been alluding, is cer
tainly sufficient to awaken the whole South to the
alarming free-soil tendencies of the Fillmore party.
Having given extracts from the Baltimore Pa
triot and tbe Nashville Patriot, we will conclude,
in order to strengthen and illustrate the truth of
our position, with an article on the eame point,
from that leading and efficient Black Republican
organ, the New York Post. Read it, and see what
remarkable unanimity of sentiment, and even of
ideas, there is in this respect between the parties
to whom we have referred :
"But for the passing of the Nebraska bill, we
might have been spared these exhibitions of the
morality of. slavery, for there would have bsen
nothing to be gained by them. They are now part
of the machinery by which the reign of slavery is
to be extended over tre region which that bill wrest
ed from freedom. But for the enactment of that
law, the struggle which Ve are now making might
have been postponed for years, and the peace be
tween the North and the South, which is now so
atrociously broken, with the melancholy promise
of yet more violent conflicts, would have remained,
for the present at least, unviolated. Yet the test
of party orthodoxy at the Cincinnati Convention
is to be the approval of tho measure which has
caused all thi3 discord and all these outrages.
Nobody contends that they could have happened if tht
Nebraska bill had bun defeated. Yet we have Mr.
Buchanan qualifying himself for a nomination at
Umcinnau by declaring that be thicks the Nebras
ka bill a fair and just settlement of the slaverv
question, a finality. Settlement! It stirs up the
agitation from its lowest depths. Finality ! It is
the beginning of a strife between tbe free and the
slave states, to which all the quarrels that have
hitherto arisen are but the dalliance of lovers."

down to three. On tbe 16th ballot Maine went
entirely for Buchanan, Kentucky all for Douglas.
After tbe announcement of tha" result, Mr. Pres
ton, of Kentucky, said that he had stood firmly
by Douglas, and he now felt confident the sense
of tbe Convention demanded the nomination of
of Buchanan (immense disorder and cries of no,
no,) he was confident the friends of Douglas
would best consult his wishes by yielding at once
and cheerfully to the wish of the Convention.
(Cries for Illinois.)
Mr. Richardson, of Illinois, said that without ad
vising others what might be their duty to their con
stituents, be felt be had a duty to perform to his
own and tho candidate he represented. (Cries of
'don't withdraw him 1") He felt that be could
not, with success to his party, or carry out the
views of Mr. Douglas, continue him longer in the
contest. (Immense applause.) He said he had
eceived a letter from Mr. Douglas which he da
sired to have read and then he would withdraw
his name. He read a telegraphic despatch from
Mr. Douglas stating, that, from telegraphic ac
count?, he felt confident that a longer continuance
of his name before the Convention would tend to
dbturb the harmony of its action, and that he de
sired to withdraw, simply stating that he believed
the democracy would do well to unite and vote for
one candidate, either Pierce or Buchanan. (Im
Gov. Seymour endeavored to address the Con
vention, but was prevented for Eome time by 'the
confusion and uproar. He finally said that the
Democracy of New York were united upon one
point, that was the propriety of adhering to one
or the o'.hsr of the nominees. They had adhered,
to Pierce as Ion: as he had a vote and had then
voted for Douglas, who now withdrew. He di
sired to do all that was possible to harmonise the
Convention. (Immense applause.)
On the 17th ballot New Hampshire voted for
Buchanan, Hubbard making a speech of exphna
t:cn. Immediately ater tho billot commenced
cannon commenced- firing. The Convention was
in the highest excitement. State alter State gave
a plumper for the nominee. Numerous speeches
followed of congratulation, and expressive of per
fect acquiescence in the action of the Convention.

and Sifts of New York, on an equal basis, altbo'

of the Convention ae so numerous as to preclude
all mention of their names. Preston Brooks is a
delegate to the Convention; buhe has not as yet
arrived. When he does, however, he will doubt-le.-s
be the " lion" of the Convention. There are
hundreds here who have be;n heard to express
their great anxiety to sea the man who chastised
oar country's traitor, Charles Sumner.

known to oar country, and 13 no other person than
Wm. A.Richardson, of Speakership notoriety.

sal'y conceded that he'will be-elected.

In the room ccjupied by tbe Kentucky ' dele

Th's gallant old line Whig, who loved his country
more than old friends, pirty interests, or prejudice

covered that bis old association Lai "merged it
self into a contempti'h abolition party," and who
gallantly led on the Democratic column during

havo sent here a great many more delegaiej thin

eighty more than she is entitled to. Tennessee
has her full quota on the ground. Our delegation
is somewhat divided in personal preferences,

THE CONVENTION CONVENED
at half past 12 o'clock to-day. Ex-Gov. Medary
of Ohio, on motion of CoL Richardson of Illinois,
was called temporarily to the chair. Delegates and
Reporters took their seats, Sectetaries were elected
pro tern., when the Convention proceeded to the
transaction of preliminary business.
Just at this juncture of the evening's business,
the Benton delegation from Missouri appeared at
the door and demanded admittince; but beingjie
fased they forced their way to the halLwith pis
tols and bowie-knives i 1 hand, declaring that they
were the "unterrified " and unrestricted Democia
cy of Missouri. Amid indiscribable dismay and
confusion, they tock seats as they could find them,
when the house was soon restored to dignity and
order. This was a very ungallant and hasty pro
ceeding on the part of the old Bullion Democracy.
They find no defenders here from any quarter
their conduct was unjustifiable. CoL Richardson,
of Illinois,, denounced ,tbe act as an insult to tbe
Convention and demanded that the Convention, ia
justice to itself, should remove them. Altir a lit
tle delay and some discussion, they peaceably left
tbe hall. One of their number attempted time
