Washington, December 15, 1853.
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
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
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
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
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.
