It will hold no fellowship with the Whig and Democratic organizations, believing that the main inraos on which they have been ar rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that thoy are now chiefly used by tbo Sec tional Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Liberty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis claiming all oonneetion with them, it will yet sympathise with those of their adherents who aro honeetly seeking through them to advance the sul>stantial interests of the oountry, although it must beliove that they have not chosen the better way.

Having assembled in National Conven tion as the delegates of the Free Democra cy of the United States, united by a com mon resolve to maintain right against wrongs, and freedom against slavery; con fiding in the intelligence, patriotism, and the discriminating justice ol the Americai people ; putting our trust in God for the triumph of our cause, and invoking his guidance in our endeavors to advance it we now submit to the candid judgment ol all m?a the following declaration ol prin ciples and measures: ... . . I. That Governments, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, are instituted among men to s?cur^to a ' those inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, with which they were endowed by their Creator and of which none can be deprived by valid legis lation, except for crime. II. That the true mission of American Democracy is to maintain the liberties ol the people, the sovereignty of the states, and the perpetuity of the Union, by the impartial application to public affairs, with out sectional discriminations, of the iun damental principles of equal rights, stru t justice, and economical administration. III. That the Federal Government is. one of limited powers, derived solely from the Constitution ; and the grants of power therein ought to be strictly construed by all the departments and agents of the Gov ernment, and it i* inexpedient and dan gerous to exercise doubtful constitutional '' 'rV.^That the Constitution of the United States, ordained to form a more perfect union, to establish justice, and secure the blessings of liberty, expressly denies to the General Government all power to de prive any person of life, liberty, or prop erty, without due process of law; and, therefore,the Government, having no more power to make a slave than to make a king, and no more power to establish sla very than to establish monarchy, should at once proceed to relieve itself from all re sponsibility for the existence of slavery wherever it possesses constitutional power to legislate for its extinction. * V. That, to the persevering and impor tunate demands of the Slave Power lor more slave States, new slave Territories, and the nationalization of Slavery, our dis tinct and final answer is?no more slave States, no slave Territory, no nationalized Slavery, and no national legislation lor the extradition ??f slaves. VI That Slavery is a sin against Hod and a crime against man, which no human enactment nor usage can make right; and that Christianity, humanity, and patriotism, alike demand its abolition. VII. That the fugitive Slave Act of l?v>u in repugnant to the Constitution, to the principles of the common law, to the spirit of Christianity, and to the senti ment* of the civilized world. W e there fore deny its binding force upon the American People, and demand its imme diate and total repeal. VIII. That the doctrine that any human law is a finality, and not subject to modi fication or repeal, is not in accordance with the creed of the founders of our Uov ernment, and is dangerous to the liberties of the people. IX. That the acts of Congress knnwn as the Compromise Measures of 1850, by making the admission ol a sovereign State contingent upon the adoption of other measures demanded by the special inter est of Slavery ; by their omission to guar anty freedom in free Territories ; by the r attempt to impose unconstitutional limit ation* on the power of Congress and the t%LZ admit now State. ? by fte,, pro lis,mis for the assumption of five millions ?r the State debt of Texas, and for ho payment of five millions ,,,o,o an.l the cession of a lar#e territory to iho Mine State under menace, as an inducement to the relinquishment of a groundless claim, and by their invasion of the sovereign y of the States and the liberties of the peo ple, through the enactment of an unjust, oppressive, ami unconstitutional Fugitive Slave Law, are proved to be inconsistent with all the principles ami maxims of De mocracy, and wholly inadequate to the settlement of the questions of whic.h they are claimed to lie an adjustment. X. That no permanent settlement of the Slavery question can he looked tor, except in the' practical recognition of the truth that Slavery is .sectional, and Free dom national; by the total separation of the General Government from Slavery, and the exercise of its legitimate and consti tutional influence on the side of Freedom; and by leaving to tile States the* whole subject of Slavery and the extradition of fugitives from service. ' XI. That all men have a natural right to a portion of the soil; and that, as the use of the soil is indispensable to life, the right of all men to the soil is as sacred as their right to life itself. XII. That the1 public lands of the Uni ted States belong to the people, and should not be sold to individuals nor granted to corporations, but should be held as a sa cred trust for the benefit of the people, and should be granted in limited quanti ties, free of cost, to landless settlers. XIII. That a due regard for the Federal Constitution, and sound administrative policy, demand that the funds of the Gen eral Government be kept separate from banking institutions; -that inland and ocean postage should be reduced to the lowest possible point; that no more reve nue should be raised than is. required to defray the strictly necessary expenses, of the public service, and to pay off the pub lic debt; and that the power and patron age of the Government should be dimin ished by the abolition of all unnecessary offices, salaries, and privileges, and by the election by the people of all civil officers in the service of the United States, so far as may be consistent with the prompt and efficient transaction of the public business. XIV. That river and harbor improve ments, when necessary to the safety and convenience of commerce with foreign nations or among the several States, are objects of national concern, and it is the duty of Congress, in the exercise of its constitutional powers, to provide for the same. XV. That emigrants and exiles from the Old World should find a cordial wel come to homes of comfort and fields of enterprise in the New ; and every attempt to abridge their privilege of becoming citizens and owners of the soil among us ought to be resisted with indexible deter mination. XVI. That every nation has a clear right to alter or change its own Govern ment, and to administer its owu concerns in such manner as may best secure the rights and promote the happiness of the people, and foreign interference wiih that right is a dangerous violation of the law of nations, against which all independ ent Governments should protest, and en deavor by all proper means to prevent; and especially is it the duty of the Ameri can Government, representing the chief Republic of the world, to protest against, and by all proper means to prevent, the intervention of Kings and Emperors against nations seeking to establish for themselves republican or constitutional Governments. XVII. That the independence of Hayti ought to be recognised by our Govern ment, and our commercial relations with it placed on the footing of the most favor ed nations. XVIII. That as, by the Constitution, " the citizens of each State shall be en titled to aH privileges and immunities of citizens of the several States," the prac tice of imprisoning colored seamen of other States, while the vessels to which they belong lie in port, and refusing to exercise the right to bring such cases be fore the Supreme Court of the United States, to test the legality of such pro ceedings, is a flagrant violation of the Constitution, and?n invasion of the rights of the citizens of otther States, utterly in consistent wiih the professions made by the slaveholders, that they wish the pro visions of the Constitution faithfully ob served by every State in the Union. XIX. That we recommend the intro duction into all treaties, hereafter to be I negotiated between the United States and foreign nations, of some provision for the amicable settlement of difficulties by a re sort to decisive arbitration. . XX'. That the Free Democratic party is not organized to aid either the Whig or j Democratic wing of the great Slave Com- j , promise party of the nation, hut to defeat ' J them both ; and that repudiating and re- I I nouncing both, as hopelessly corrupt, and ! utterly unworthy of confidence, the pur pose of the Free Democracy is to take possession of the Federal Government, [ | and administer it for the better protection 1 | of the rights and interests of the whole j people. XXI. That we inscribe on our banner, : Free Son., Free Speech, Free Labor, and FUSS Mkn, and under it wtfl light on and fight ever, until a triumphant victory j shall reward our exertions. XXII. That upon this Platform the Coii I vention presents to the American People, as a candidate for the office of President of the United States, John P. Hale, of New Hampshire, and as a candidate for the office of Vice President of the United Slates, Gkorc.e W. Julian, of Indiana, and earnestly commends them to the sup port of all freemen and parties. T. I.
