Our columns this mornining contain a
full report of tho procecdinga of the!
Democratic State Convention yestordavj.
j-OBay mailt was impressive innumoers
and the manifestation of spirit, is to fall
far short in description. It was an as
semblage pf men; who;feli that they'nadj
a high duty to perform, and were assured
proposed to. bear, a part. It yras no preo
arranged or cut-andlried affair, to be
gono thrbugh'with formally, Ka Unsi
nes-wos (o mould and.Xuse into a. homo
gqneous. whole, elements formally at vari
ance. JUpon great cardinal principles und
measured, there was no difference, ' Tliis
portion of jtho work-jvaa entrusted, to a
committee who hod -4iover before' Ex
changed views on tho matters to be con
sidered, but so clear and unmistakable
aro tho sentiments on pending issues
them in a platform, which, when
presented to - the, convention,. . met
wjth little or iio opposition. In
deed ill 'disagreement was allayed
when, after a first "reading, it came lo be
fully undcrstoocl,; t Qn no question involv

Matters of expediency in regard to dele

preference among the names to be pre

ciled sorao feeling; but the Convention
was called - to . afford opportunity for a
candid! cpmpajrison of ifews...illn8';was
fiiliyhad; 'and' m the res'dlt, there' was
expressed' "unarilmdusr acquiescence.
Doubtless, attempts will -be made to .rep
resent .the assemblage -as inharmonious
and diacqrdant, .but,, there, was iiot,mro
divergeheo'' ofTiews than was to bo ex
pected among a body of men who had
jiit;juc uu,ui;ni uijiu uj unite in a politi
cal alftanco Intended "to be permanent,
When highMnindodmen assemblo in such
consultations it is duo to truth that their
expressions should bo frank; but the
frankness of yesterday was -nhld the fire
of enthusiasm .and confidence'in tho tri
umphtQf'tho effort being inaugurated.
The preamble to tho platform is the
koy-note to the feeling that permeated
overy breast a nnion for tho sake of
strength, and'a'fdYmal enrollment under
tho Dcmocratidbannor already "jull high
advanced" apd, moving on to victory.
Tho resolutions ombody tho true doctrines
prevalent in the earlier and bettor days
of tho. republic, and contain .manly
and earnest protest against the perni
cious teachings and practices which have
caused the decline under which thocoun
try is laboring. Clear and emphatic ap
prcjj'oliiSj given to the great and aalutary
financial moasuro first promulged by Mr.
Pendleton of Ohio, and this proposition
was recognired as essential .to thoTclief
ot lire country irotn the Btnngontcondi-
tion'which now holds paralyzed tho pr6'
ductivo energies of tho people. Thero
Vi&a pa feature which gave greater satis
faction, and there is nouo which will com1
mand so oxtensivo a popular support.
Prosident Johnson was fully and freely
indorsed, not only in tho resolutions, but
in the speeches which tho discussions of
tho convention elicited. Aa Tennessc
ana, nil felt proud in thosignal triumph
ho had recently achieved in his strngglc
with kthq .Radical Jacobins, and, desired to
accord him high praise. The resolution
referring to him was intended, as a lauda
tion to ono who, by his heroic defense of
tho 'principles of constitutional liberty,'
had won a placo in honor besido the
founders of tho ropublic. Ho has not'
been, put"1 forth as. a candidate for the
nomination of tho Sovr York Conven-.
tion, but, while a majority of the conven"'
tion thpught.'it prudont to indicate no
preference In that1 regard, it was yet
doomed duo that tho State delegation, in
tho evont his name was offered, should'
oompliment iiim with a vote.
Mr. Pendleton, as the embodiment and
representative of the principles an
nounecd, was regarded ad the strong man1'
boforo the convention, but his friends did
not, under the eircumstancos, seek to have)
his name presented, preferring to leavo
that question to the discretion or tho dolo
gates, in whom they have confidence thai
thoy will triply represent the sentiment
na shadowed forth in tho gonoral inter
course of tho day, and tho jdatform.. ,
As a wholothc Occasion gave evidcnco.
of n vigor and determination that bo
tokens a day not distant, when the or
ganization perfected, wil through tho'
instrumentality of a ohaugo: in tho Fed'
oral government, bo able to work out a
dolivoranco from the oppression which
enthralls tlio' pcoplc of Tennessee. It
was a day long to bo remembered aa tho
date of tho commencement or a contest
whon results will be most auspicious for
tho good of the country; and to which
thoeu who participated can lookback
with prido and satisfaction.

For this manifestation, gentlemen Of the!
Convention, on your part, in calling upon;
me to preside over its deliberations upon
so important an occasion, I beg of you to
accept my sincere thanks. This., was to me1
unexpected, but I prize it as "one of the;
brightest coraplimenla that could possibly'
be paid lb1 me under lho circil instances.
Just from the midst of the great political
struggle in which the defense of this nation
hung, I feel deeply thisjresponse; coming,
from the Conservative masses of Tennessee.;

Mr. President and gentlemen of the con

call and face this large and fine assembly
of thii people or Tennessee wilhont emo

faces from whom X have leen separated

all have suffered can imprint. You are
here from the East and eat, and you are
here from tho Middle, to s Wear to Hie Con
stitution of die United States; and, if it be
possible by any act of yours, to redeem this
down trodden country from the feet of the
despoilers. If a propfjfct ha'd dared ten
years ago to proclaim to the people of
America, that in the year one-half of
that si real community would be disfran
chised, that their slaves would be their',
masters, themselves exctudedjfrom,thebal-'

country, now uo ine gray headed, ven

How do the cons of the old pioneers feel,

We who fojjow them have our rights Jooj
we have inherited them : but they say yon
forfeited them by this rebellion, and that
jpu are. entitled to no respect. I do not
stand here to discuss that chapter in oar
history which We have past. This ia not
the first rebellion that was ever known.
There is a difference between our rebelion
and that of J76, viz Ours was unsuccessful
and theirs waa successful. Success generally
sanctifies the means without' the motives.
"Whence came this war through which we
havogone? Qnasays.it wa3 Seward and
his allie?. Another that, it was Jeff. Davis
and his allies! It came from antagonism
an antagonism fonnd in the camp of
Y ashmgton while be held Boston in siege.
7l was found in hia Cabinet when he became
President! The rebellion'did1 hot have itl
origin upon the'eubject'of slaf ery -Those
Radicals from the Northeast, who are crying
so for the colored people were the authors
and importers of slavery from Africa
These are the men who talk so much about
their love for the Southern slaves. It is all
humbug, and they will find it to be so in
less, than , fiye years. This antagonism
went on increasing in force and volume.
Did wc not try to prevent it ? Did not
men from the North and Sputb, men that
loved that flag, men that loved the Consti
tution and Union, did they not exhaust
themselves trying to prevent, this' terrible
strife? Can all the men in the world ptop
ah eartbriuake or stop the flow of .the tide
of the -Mississippi as it bearsilts tribute to

friends by the late war.i Ja thatnot suffer
ing ? ft' not suuermg necessary to atone
for any evil thatyou have committed 1 Have
jrou not suffered in the. loss of fortune ?
Industry' can repair fortune: New friends
can take the place of those tyhoirf 'y.ou have
lost: but liberty lo3t is perpetual sorrow
till regained. Now gentlemen, I do not
know bow to talk of these things. I have
neither-time nor language to let out my
bouI upon the tyranny that oppresses us.
I say it is-the most cursed state of despo
tism that ever the world saw. i ou may
go to Austria, or Russia, orthe world over,
and you cannot find a tyranny and degra
dation equal to that placed upon us by this
Radical curse. There ha been one man at
Washington who, clothed, with, the vestue
of power, has undertaken to do, and in
our opinion has done his be3t towards pro
tecting a dpwn-trodden nation, and that
man is -Andrew Johnson. I admire his
course. I approyo It. J rejoice that hfe
was lately, acquitted before that high court
of impeachment. It' was his fortune arid
mine, for many long years, to bo antagonists
in politics. It was my misfortune to be
under his control for a pef iod, and -it was
very' ndcomfprtablo to me. But I say to
ward him for myself, all honor- I thank
Gbd that I have a spirit of forgiveness'.
While hh has been trvins lo cover us with
amnesty, we should move on like a band of
brothers. Ijook at the vast extravagance
pf tire government';, why, you Jiayea liu;
reau that costs you eleven millions of dol
lars a year. That is just what. John Adams
administration cost, and I have, when :
boy, heard him denounced as the most ex
travagant man in the world. What use
have vod for a Bureau ? JJo more than an
animal has for a dictionary. It ia said by
the Radical press of the North, that we arc
full 'of Ku-Kluxand every other klux; that
we are for killing Union men and enslaving
tho negro. Tins is false utterly talae
Now -my colored friends, let me say a
Word to you. 1 here is not a white man m
Una State that would put yon back into
slavery. I say for one that I will not do
it as long as my head is on my shoulders.
I say the thing Was not. fairly done, but it
waa done, and we will not alter it. We
are your beBt friends at last. Where do
you get money to build your cottages?
Where do yon go when you get old and de-
crepid ? . Do you not go to your old masters
and. old homes, let there is an element
who seeks to win you over so a lo get your
votes to put hungry aspirants into office,
These evils will noMasllaTways; TnhdJrJey
wil.npot b"e broqghitio an. end; by the swp?d.
The appeal ia to the ballot-box. We are
entering upon the most important contest
that this country ever saw. Stars are pass
ing over our heaas, ana neiore long you
will see the morning star it will rise in the
East. A Btar that does not go down in the
West, but melts away in the liirht of heaven.
That -star., the' star of hope,, will bsdis
placed by a luminary that shall rise also
in the East and the tires will set this conli
nent in glowing flames. More than
two million of men are mustering for the
great campaign. Their columns can be
seen and heard for miles around; they are
inarching jliideifuatioqal airs, the same airs
that were played at Yorktown and New
Orleans, they are marching under that old
banner, with- ho 'flew emblems, the same
plain old banner which gives liberty to all,
the Constitution the supreme law, and the
right of all men1 id' vote: a banner that

white inert are1 capable of preserving it;
and by the grace of God they intend to do

Biimmit of the political monritain, that it
Will be joined by its great leader, who is
coming forth on the 4th of July next.
When his voice will ring out an order to

this land' as waa n'eVer heard before. Their
destiny ia in the future. Who that favored
leader will be, I will not undertake to-say ;
but, my friends, this wot k cannot be accom

so organized His domains that nothing can
be achieVed without laws. If this' thing fs
worth anything, it is worth working for.
Thoao of us who cannot vote can
speak and reason. Do these men who

be aclileved if we are true to ourselves. By
courage, by that power of endurance,
whether at the ballot-box or held of battle,
we surely can rise up some day to the dig
nity of our birth-right. In my opinion
that, day ia approaching. Whoever the
convention at New York nominates, I am
for him against everybody else. 1 have,

appoining delegates to represent, tbem in
the National Democratic Convention, to
meet in thecity of New York-on the 4th
of July ne'xtf Tire' profoundly aenaible df
the troubled condition of public affairs, and
regard the-approaching election of a Chief
Magistrate aa the most important eer
held since ;tho establishment of the-government.
In its result to the nationat large,
they conceive ia involved the preservation
of tho Constitution and its guarantees pf
equal and exact justice, individual liberty',
the general welfare and domestic tran
quillity. To themselves, in great part la
boring under disfranchisement and unjust
dispossession of the primary and essential
ghts of citizens of the republic, they
esteem it to be a crisis on which depends
their personal freedom and future pros
perity as a community. Thus deeply
impressed! they havo" convened' in a
spiritioblivioui of. past misunderstanding,
and resolved among themselves to .exclude
from their deliberations for the eonlthon
good, all questions decided by ihe war, and
to banish from their breasts all unkind
feeling they may have excited; ajd. to
take counsel only .how best they may re
establish political intercourse' and associ
ation with that portion of their fellow
citizens of other States who coincide in
opinion with them, and desire to assert in
the administralibh of the Federal govern
ment principles and measures which will
restore it to its integrity. In this step,
they'deentit proper to adopt thenameand
desigpatioil'b6rneby thq only political' or
ganization with which they can associate,
and in thus formally uniting themselves
with 'the'DemocraticJparfy s$f nbw ixisti,
they herewith declare the principles they
maintain, and the measures they hold
necessary for a wise and safe administra
tion o&ilie public interestsV ' 1
1. Resolved, That, as in the course of
events, the question whether a State of the
American Union could, under the compact,
secede; wa3 submitted to a contest of arms,
and decided in .the negative; and as it is
wise that theories in government should be
abandoned when found impracticable,
therefore, the American people, North and
South, Bhould accept such decision as
.final and conclusive; nevertheless, we
assert and maintain that the Constitution
created the Federal government supreme
under well-defined limitations and restric
tions, leaving to the States a largo mass of
residuary rights and powers over their
domestic concerns, and making ,the States
coeqUal in respect of such rights; and that
the result of the war has not, aud should
not in any manner be construed, to impair
these rights, or aggrandize the power of the
general'government 'to tficiendangermen't
of public liberty.
. rteaoiveu, iiiat we recognize the sys
tem of African slavery formerly existing in a
portion of this country aa extinguished by
the result of the war, 'and that fllct'is rati
fied by a binding constitutional amend
ment ; but that we regard the measures of
the r ederal Congress bestowing tho elective
franchise on the black race in ten States,
and withholding it. from ,large numbers of
the white race the owners of the soil and
payers of the government taxes as a gross
usurpation of power, and that such sotijec
tion of theso Statea to the political and
social control of negroe, ia a policy unjust,
unwise and oppressive, and .tending to ex
cite a war of races ; and that any measure
which1 seeks to deprive thb white men of
America of 'their rightful position of
superiority .and supremacy in the admiuis
traUontithogbvernmcuts, both' Federal
and State, or . to divide or -impair it, is
fraught with great danger to the perpetuity
of free republicari institutions-. f
' 3. Resolved, That notwithstanding the
enormous frauds in the creation of the public
debt, and the corrupt and ruinous extrava
gance by which it is being increased the
faith of the nation js pledged to its pay
ment, principal and interest, In the terms
of the acta of Congress issuing the bonds
which represent it, bnt not otherwise; apd
we are opposed to extending the time of
payment and the consequent increase of the
amount of gold interest to more than the
principal ; and also to the view that the
principal of a large portion of theso bonds
is mvable in sold: and. that while we hold
gold "and silver to be" the'trhe constitutional
currency, we declare that the five-twenty
bonds should be paid in the same currency
received bv the crovernment for their issue.
and that by the withdrawal 'of the money
granted Jo the national banks, we hold
this 'result can be accomplished withontah
undue increase of paper money, now the
h'nlv rirculatinir medium: and that bv'thta
uiearvTj.the people can soonest be relieved
of the bnrden of a public debt corrupting
and enslaving in its character : and that Id
this fhere is no infraction of the public
faith nor violation of contract with the
holders of bonds.
4. Resolved, Thatevery specissof proper-
tydn the country, including the government
bonds, which, receive the equal protection
of the government, should bear an equal
share of the burdens of taxation ; and that
as Justice is the true' foundation of all eood
government, there should not exist a fa-
vo red, class pauMn gojo, wnue uie govern
mem ulxcJiBrra ua ucuu uj ijic luawi ui tue
people, ia a currency which, is kept depre
ciated in value by this iniquitous system.
5. Resolved, That the doctrines and prac
tices of .the Radical Republican party now

of the Federal government, and endeavor
ing by encroachment on tjje powers of the
Executive and ndiciat branches to absorb
toltsclfalfpower, williheyltabV'llad.'il nol
checked, to the destruction of, lie republi

cordially ally ourselves, with that party

the question then came up on the recon
