INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
ADOPTED AT PITTSBURGH, AUGUST 12, 1852.
Having assembled in Nutional 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 of the American
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 oi
all men the following declaration of prin
ciples and measures: -
I. That Governments, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed,
are instituted among men to secure to all,
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 of
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 fun
damental principles of equal rights, strict
justice, and economical administration.
III. That the Fedepl Government is
one of limited powers, derived solely from
the Constitution; and the grants of power
therein ought to l>e strictly construed by
all the departments anil agents of the Gov
ernment, and it is inexpedient and dan
gerous to exercise doubtful constitutional
IV. That the Constitution of the United
States, ordained to form a more perfect
"union, to establish justice, and secure the
blessings of lil>erty, expressly denies to
the (tenernl 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 91
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 for
more slave States, new slave Territories,
and the nationalization of Slavery, our dis
tinct and filial answer i*?no more slave
Slates, no slave Territory, no nationalized
Slavery, and no national legislation for the
extradition of slaves.
VI. That Slavery is a sin against God
and a crime against man, which no human
enactment nor usage can make right; and
that Christianity, humanity, aud patriotism,
alike demand its abolition.
VII. That the fugitive Slave Act of 1850
is repugnant to the Constitution, |o the
principles of the common law, to the
spirit of Christianity, aud to ihe send
ments of Ihe civilized world. We there
fore deny ils binding force upon the
American People, ami dem-'tnd its imme
diate and total repeal.
V III. That the doctrine that any human
law is a finality, aud not subject to modi
1 fication or repeal, is not in accordance
; with the creed of the founders of our Gov
I ernment, and is dangerous to the liberties
I of the people.
IX. That the acts of Congress known
as the Compromise Measures of 18/50, by
making the admission of a sovereign State
contingent upon the adoption of other
measures demanded hy the special inter
est of Slavery ; by their omission to guar
anty freedom in free Territories; hy their
attempt to impose unconstitutional limit
ations on the power of Congress ami the
people to admit new Slates; by their pro
visions for the assumption of five millions
of the Stale debt of Texas, and for.the
payment of five millions more, and the
cession of a large territory to the same
State under menace, as an inducement to
the relinquishment of a groundless claim,
and by their invasion of the sovereignty
of the States and the lilw>rties of the peo
ple, through the enactment of an unpist,
oppressive, and unconstitutional Fugitive
I Slave Law, ure proved to be inconsistent
with all the principles and maxims of De
mocracy, and wholly inadequate to the
settlement of the questions of which they
? are claimed to he an adjustment.
X. That no permanent settlement of
tlie Slavery question can be looked for,
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 in tine uce on the side of Freedom;
and by leaving to the States thn 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 the 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, aud to pay oil'the pub
lic debt; and that the power aud patron
age of the Government should be dimin
ished by the abolition of all unnecessary
offices, salaries, aud privileges, and by the
election by the people of all civil officers
in the serviee 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 4toines 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 inflexible deter
XVI. That every nation has a clear
right to alter or change its own Govern
ment, and to administer its own concerns
in such manner as may best secure the
rights and promote the" happiness of the
people, and foreign interference with
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; I
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, aud our commercial relations with
it placed on the footing of the most favor
XVIII. That as, by the Constitution,
" the citizens of each State shall be en
titled to all 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 an invasion of the rights
of the citizens of otther Stales, 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
negotiated l?etween 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
I Democratic wing of the great Slave Com
j promise party of the nation, but to defeat
' them both ; aud that repudiating and re
j nouncing both, as hopelessly corrupt, and
utterly utlworthy of confidence, the pur
pose of the Free Democracy is to take
j possession of the Federal Government,
i and administer it for the l?etter protection
1 of the rights and interests of the whole
XXI. That we inscribe on our banner,
Free Soil, Free Speech, Free Labor,
and Free Men, and sudor it will fight on
and fight ever, until a triumphant victory
shall reward our exertions.
XXII. That upon this Platform the Con
vention presents to the American People,
as a candidate for the office of President
of the United Stfftes, John P. Hale, of
New Hampshire, and as a candidate for
the office of Vice President of the United
States, George W. Julian, of Indiana,
and earnestly commends ihem to the sup
port of all freemen and parties.

\LABASTER STARCH GLOSS ?The most pure,
glossy, and finest, snow-whito starch, in the
world. The cost of this starch is about the same as
common starch, the entire cost not exceeding five
centa per <|Uart, and is made just as quick. It pre
serves the clothes, and gives them a glossy and enam
elled appearance, that no othor starch can do. This
is an entirely new discovery, and the first time ever
offered to the public. I ask a fee of only one dime
for imparting the knowleilge how to make this starch .
and I expect to make more out of it at that low price
than 1 could by selling it to a few of the rich for five
dollars, which has been done. Now, ladies and gen
tlemen, send on your dimes, and get this information,
which mm? of you would not be without for fifty
time* its cost. Copy the address, and send for the in
formation when you have leisure. Better pay post
age both ways, by sonding a stamp along with the
dime Address, post paid,

to five dollars per day; indeed, some of the agents
now employe.! are realising twice that sum. livery
