. Tho Democracy of the United States, in
convention assembled, declare
First We pledge ourselves anew to the
constitutional doctrines and traditions of
the Democratic party as illustrated liy the
teachings and examples of a long line of
Democratic statesmen and patriots, and em
bodied in the platform of the last national
convention of the party.

Eleventh The treat fraud ot IhlH, iy
which, upon a false count ot the electoral
votes of two states, the candidate tle
feuted at the polls was declared to be
president, and for the first time iu Amer
ican history the will of the people was
set aside under a threat ot military vio
lence, struct a deadly blow at our sys
tem of representative government. The
Democratic party, to preserve tiie coun
try from the horrors of a civil war sub
mitted for tho time in the lirm ana pat
riotic belief that the people would pun
ish this crime in 1S80. This duty precedes
and dwarfs every other. It inspires a more
sacred duty upon the people of the Union
than was ever addressed to the consciences
of i nation of freemen.
ThirteenthThe resolution of Samuel J.
Tilden not anain to be a candidate for the
exalted place to which he was elected by a
majority of his countrymen, and from
which he was excluded by the leaders of
the Piepublican party, is received by the
Democracy of the United States with deep
sensibility, and they declared their confi
decce in his wisdom, patriotism
and integrity unshaken by the as
saults of the common enemy, and they
further assure Lira that he is fol
lowed into the retirement he has chosen
for himself by the sympathy and respect of
his fellow citizens, who regard him as one,
who, by elevating the standard of public
morality, and adorning and purifying the
public service, merits the lasting gratitude
of his party.
Fourteenth W c congratulate the coun
try upon the honestly and thrift of a Dem
ocratic congress which had reducea the
public expenditure f 40,000,000 a year;
upon the continuation oi prosperity at
home and the national honor abroad : and
above all. upon the promise ot such a
changt in the administration of the govern

SPEECH BY MR. ENGLISH.
A grand Hancock and English ralifica
tion meeting was held in tho wigwam at
Indianapolis on Monday evening. The im
mense structrue was crowded, over 2,500
people, ladies and gentleman being pres
ent, and 2,000 were unable to gain admis
sion. The audience manifested great en
thusiasm, the most intense satisfaction, and
a manifest determination to win the fight
in the coming election. General John
Love presided, and speeches were made by
Ex-Gov. Hendricks, Hon. Wm. II. English,
the Democratic candidate for vice-president,
Senator Joseph E. McDonald, Sena
tor Daniel W. Voorhees, Hon. Franklin
Landers, the Democratic candidate for gov
ernor, and several others. The following
was Mr. English's speech.
My Friends ASDFELLot-CrrizEXs: I
need hardly say that I am glad to see you,
and that I fully appreciate and cordiully
thank you for your friendly greetings.
1 attribute your enthusiastic demonstra
tion mainly to a desire to express, in an
emphatic manner, your faith and confidence
in the great cause I have in part been
chosen to represent a great cause, betore
which the petty jealousies of men shrink
into utter insignificance. I also attribute
the remarkable unanimity with which I
was nominated to the second highest ollice
in the gift of the people not so much to
any merit of my own as to the confidence
and admiration which the national conven
tion entertained for the state of Indiana,
which was known to be my native state,
and a state pre-eminent for her unswerving
fidelity to the great principles of constitu
tional liberty advocated by tlte Democratic
buch a nomination was none the less a
compliment to me personally, and it fills me
with the protoundest gratitude,but it wits at
the same time a compliment to every Demo
cratic Indianiari, and in some sense of ever'
citizen of the state, for, whatever else I am,
I am still an Indiana production a growth
of Iloosicr soil a native member ot the
great Indiana household ami I believe
there is high authority for 6aying that he
who provided none for his own household
is worse than an infidel; so, 1 confidently
rely upon the sympathy and support'of my
Gentlemen, if I were to consult only my
ease and comfort anil my interet-ts, I
should decline this nomination, and there
are those within thy sound of my voice who
know well that, as fur as I had any politi
cal aspiration, it was not in the direction of
a place on the presidentiul ticket.
I stood with tho Democracy of my state
at Cincinnati earnestly an4 in good filth,
as every one thero will tesffy, in favor of
the nomination of onr bdoved citizen,
Thomas A. Hendricks, tor president of the
United States. We were youig ruen to
gether at the same college;. we were to
gcthi r in the convention which hrmcd the
constitution of this state ; cnteiml con
gress together over a quarter of a teitury
ago, and I know him to be u pure a man
Fifth N discrimination in favor
as lives in this or any other land. Circum
stances, which are not at all to Governor
Ihndricks' discredit, but which no agency
of ours could control, prevented his nom
ination. It was not his fault, nor the fault
of any cf his Indiana friends. But his
not being nominated has not hurt him in
tho least, and ho stands to-day higher en
throned than ever in tho hearts of tho peo
pie, and will undoubtedly stand high In
the confidence of the next Dcmocrotiu ad
After his name had passed from before
the convention, and not before, was my
nttino presented for vice-president. How
unanimously it was approved, you al
know, and I am proud to know that it was
most cordially approved by Thomas A
That Gen. Hancock will be tho choice ot
tho peoplo for president I have no question
whatever. He will bo elected because he
ought to be elected, i ueueve tiie best in
forests of the couurry require that ho
should be elected. Ho is a man in every
way fitted for the exalted position. He
has a record as pure as tho untrodden
snow upon the mountain top. He is
grand, clear-headed, clean-hearted man; a
brave soldier, a great commander, a re-
specter of law and order and civil rights
You could not bo in bis presence five min
utes without feeling tnat here is a man fit
to be the ruler of a great people.
The only charge tho Republicans have
made against him is that they imposed a
painful duty upon him, and he performed
it, as it was his sworn duty as an officer to
do. And that is all.
We not only have the right man for the
pluce, but the time has come when there
ought to txs a change in the administration.
The Republicans have been in power six
teen years with the approval of the people
and nearly four years under Hayes without
their approval. Twenty vears would be
ong enough to corrupt any party.
Having been so nominated, I feel that
the unanimous voice of the representatives
of a majority of the American people is
not a voice to be disregarded by any mere
Therefore I choose to say frankly to you,
my neighbors and friends, that when the
nomination is formally tendered I expect
to accept it, and I have not one par
ticle of doubt that I shall be
elected. If I am, I shall attend to pub
lic affairs as zealously as I ever attended to
my own, and it will be the aim of my life
to discharge my duty honestly, faithfully
and to the best of my ability, not as a big
oted partisan, but in that broader and bet-
er sense of partisan statesmanship which
labors always for the right always tor the
maintenance of the correct principles of
Jacksonian Democracy; always to promote
tne nappiness and prosperity ot the people.
ueueve mat ine oesi way ior a party or a
man to achieve success is to deserve it, and
that "he serves his party best who serves
his country best."
For myself, I hope the canvss will be con
ducted in that decency and order befitting
an enlightened, law-abiding, liberty-loving
people. I hope we shall have a fair and
honest election, and that the fairly ex
pressed will of the people will be faithful
ly carried into execution.
e have no law of entail here which
perpetuates wealth in any family, or power
in any one man, or in any one party. The
great and good men, who formulated our
system of government, and our traditions
were jealous of strong governments and
long leases of power.
A change now could not fail t6 be bene
ficial to the people.
The dav General Hancock is elected the
gospel of sectional hate and jealousy, so
ong preached by the demagogues 'ef the
Republican party, will be forever closed
the hateful bloody shirt will be buried
evond the power of resurrection, and the
bright and glorious banner of peace and
good will throughout all the land will flout
on every breeze,
General Hancock not only ought to be
elected but he will be elected.
Greater harmeny exists in the Democratic
party now than has before for a quarter ot
of a century.
We were badly discouraged and dis
heartened here in 1670, and yet we carried
this state and that election by over a
quarter of million votes, although we were
cheated out of the fruits of our victory.
Yes, if history records the truth, it will go
into history and down the stream of time
to future ages that two Democrats, the
peers of any statesmen in any land, were
fairly elected president and vice-president
by the people; that they were cheated out
of their high offices, and the places were
held for four years by men who were not
the choice of the people; that the men
who perpetrated this great fraud were in
vast numbers rewarded for their corrupt
and disgraceful acts with offices which of
right belonged toother and to better men.
This worst political crime of the age, this
smirch upon the fair fame of our institu
tions must forever rest upon the Republi
can party, and it is the business which the
5,000,000 Democratic voters of the United
States now have in hand to rebuke the au
thors of this great traud, and to make its
repetition at the next election impossible.
You need have no fears that the men you
elect next time will not take their seats.
When they do, you will have a pure, eco
nominal, constitutional government, and, I
truBt, a prosperous and happy people.
