On tho 18th of July wc heard the sound of the trumpet from lleeity'of New York; that sound reached the remotest limit of this broad Confederacy a soBuJ so pure, so clear, reaching to tlie fclcies, extending in every direction, that it Moused the henrt uf every citizen of our laud, lint this voice, which cuiue to-you. through the press an J ou t'ic tologrnph, yon hae hers to-nij:lit.

Itaniel S. Dickinson, of New York. Tliroe cheer were given for Gov. Stevens, nnd three more for Mr. Dickinson. ; when that gentleman spoke as follows : Mr. Dickixsox. It is always gratifying nnd pleasant, my fellow-citizens, to bo thus greeted nnd thti remembered personally thus to be remembered for services to the country, or thus to bo remembered for ser vice to the great democratic party of the na-1 tion to be thus greeted with soul-stirring music to be thus introduced in the luiiguago of complimentary eloquence by so disting uished a gentleman a him who addressed you, to sueli a numerous and respectable au ditory as the present. The only return I can make' you, my fellow-citizens the only return I can make to the committee nnd to its organ, is the tribute of a grateful heart ; and that is freely tendered. The lines of the American people, my friends, in many ri"pect, have been east in pleasant places. Heaven's warm aud goMeu sunshine bathes nil God's children within the vast area f this Republic. The tree of lib t rty planted by the fathers of tho revolution, thougli leit a slender slniot, watered by tho tears of its daughters mid nurtured by he blood of its sons, has now, under the fester ing care of the democratic party of the nn tioiygrown to a great aud mighty live.

It is not that political MK.M cctioi;:.! jssu3 idiould Le pressed weapons arc burnished for this contest, and ; ie Xational Convention or the v.m.ttry. the knights are entering the lists; for t!uy 1 j al,;t that a grout many of the elements have been there before. The great demo- ll)tor j,lto luat have entered into other eratic party of the country, with its princi- singes ; I admit that it ha in it many of pies and its progress is in the field and it the element of ordinary struggle, and that has been in the field before. The rich fruits 1 many who participate in It do not believe it of which our country has boasted arc the re- ; intended for a sectional movement ; but it suit of it rule and of iu benign policy.- lu : ia9 one element in it that, if it has been dis- opponent, too, has Wen iu the field before. ina old wnig party has nought lett ot it nut : deserved to be, aud which is the great and nation Wc may a well be a sectional re its memories.

And it is this : laying 1 rartVt if we forget our nationalitv and degeoe 1 do not regard it as a consi Jerable element asi.i3 au other elements, worthy or unworthy, ! rate'into sectionalism.

Renewed applause. It is j famished wolves. Many of them are lacking joined to its idols ; let it alone.

The republican party has ot an element of success. ' It has not the confidence of the American people. It has appealed to sectionalism, aud passion and prejudice; and although it fs transit, as we have seen, with elements of evil, there' are other elements of evil at our doors to-day that threaten ns (Sir more than the republican party. Cheers. The disguises of the re publican party are all stripped o!T; it stands nt to-day before the American people nu dis guised in its purpose, aud, therefore, it is rob bed' of uint tenths of its power to do harm.' But what is it that threatens the integrity of this Union, the integrity of the Constitution, the integrity of the equal rights of the mass es J It is the division of the great democratic party ; nnd that is the absorbing question of the dny and of the times, and to which we nmt practically aUrosa ourselves. The democratic party is in the field with a Rreek inriilge and Lane great applause names that arc no strangers to the country, that are no strangeis to the democratic party, no strangers in the public councils, no strangers upon the field of battle, no strangers to serv ice in the ranks of tlie democracy. They are names that are written high upon our coun try's history in every department of life, whether as intrepid soldiers when our conn try is imperilled and battling upon a foreign soil, in the record of Congress, and of their respective States, ami in tho service of the democratic cause wherever the gfeat doctrine of liberty and equality nro preached. They are well known ; they are inscribed on the democratic banner, and tho democracy are going to fight this battle of the Constitution under the name of these great, nnd worthy nnd honored lenders, lint the chief impedi ment to democratic progress is division, un der the pretence of another nomination culled a democratic nomination a nomination based upon the idea of Sherwood Forest: 'For nliyr because the pood old rule Sulliectli them: the simple plan, Thnt they fchouM net w ho have the power, And thcyhoiiM keep who can." That party is in the field with its candi dates. 1 have nought to say of these candi dates personally, for these arc questions that reach lower, rise higher, and spread out in ex tent clear beyond personal considerations, whether worthy or unworthy. They go be yond mere man or men, an 1 havo nothing to do with them ns such. Questions of organi zation, movements of bodies, principle, that underlie aud form the foundation of all these matter, nro fit subjects for discussion, and 1 will treat of them and lay persons out of the question. Nor do I dwell upon the techni calities of regularity of convention or dele gates, or this, that, mid the other; I start ,ls is as sectional to-day n the P-jm '.i; party, aud ten times more niUehicvon Ap i,ime.' You need not tell me that it is not up;,,, fl portion of the States a candidate whom thev would not aooei.t.

Let tho Southern States- bestir them selves. Let them see the meaning of this elfort. Let them see the hidden spring that have propellod all this destrnetrveiirachinery. Let no one lay the flattering nnction to hi soul that this is a mere efrt at tho election of an individual. They will see that they cannot elect the individual that they have named; they will see that he cannot proba bly get a single electoral vole ; but they are laying the foundations of tho sectional party that i to be controlled by themselves, and that is to -absorb tho republican party aud rnlo the democratic party of tho North ; ami when it shall be under their control they will rule the destinies of the nation, and partake of this mighty spoil. This spoil has tempt ed them to this atrocious act; and hun gering and thirsting as they are lacking principle as they dV. ft is not surprising that they have made the effort. Hie angels fell from heaven with less temptation. Now, so long us the South aro true to themselves in this matter, they need have no fear; they will find noble, heart, noble ppirits, nnd strong arms in the North, ami the free States, that will stand by the Constitution as long as they will stand by it themselves. Applause. This good ship of State w ill never bo sur rendered until the South mutiny until they shall forsake it themselves; but when, if ever, this Government goes down when, if ever, this mighty fabric shall bo dissolved when, if ever, nr.d God grant that it may never bo, f r " prom I, o promt, est prqfiii.m God grant that it may never be ; but if it shall be, may the .Southern State not see, when prostrated aud bice ling may they not sec, as in iho case of the noble bird, their own feather " on the fiit.il dart Tint winged t!m shall lli.it 'pavercd io il heart." May no States at the South, may no organ ization at tho South, may no indiudiiuls at the South who have the good of the country and the integrity of the Constitution ut heart, aid on this movement, auppo ing that i: means nothing but tho election of individu als. I raise my warning voico to-night, atid tell you that I have no more doubt that it means the organization of a great Northern e -timid partythan 1 have of any other pro blem that has been solved w ithin lite 1-i-it ten t year in our political lii.-t.iry.

Of w hat avail are all the struggles of party of what av;:Il are the spoils of oiH : of what avail are all the rich products of tho Treasury, if we throw away such a priceless inheritance a ha been given to ns t nd of what avail i the boasted democratic party, if it degene rates into mere sectionalism, if it ignores cither in theory or practice, the land and me mory of the Washington, the Suiuters, the Marion of the Revolution if it ignores and forget the Jefferson, the Jackson, the j Ma.lis.,,,; and Monroes in the council of the ri.at principles.
