Communicated to The Progress. The I)imocratic jtarty ot It92 is not the party founldedl by JetTerson and Jackson. HSince such iitter detnuci:ttiouq a:lve Sbeen iudilged iii by the Ikhniocro.le p Illiti.lanus of the Htate of Luuisiana agailnst the reform element of th:.t parry, who has enlisted in the reform .aluse un der the name of the Peophl*s party, for the sole purpose of returning to the old land marks estahlirhed by t(enral .lack son, that I ldeem It justice to the far. mers and laborers who are Ithe prineil 1 movers in this cause, to drat 'the att l :e lion of the thinking public to thei rt cris of the I)emocratic party for the past fifty yeal s, and let them judge who are the aggressors on the principles upon which the Democratic party was founded; and that this young disciple, "The Peo ole's Purt.y," is not a new departure from the bed rock of pure Democracy, but a mere return to principjle. that the Demo cratie party had switched off from thirty y& ars ago. The Democratic party if 11840 recites "That the government should not foe ter one hiduatry at the expense of another. t Equal rights should be accorded to all. That eoouomy in the public service should urevall. That ,ungress has no power to charter I banks; that they areof deadly hostility to the best mterests of the couutry, daumger ous to our *teoubli and lnst itutionis and to t the liberties of the people, and calculated to plae tei e of the c amntry in the control of a concentrated mouney power, above the law and the will of the people. ) Demand that the public money shall be tasen out of the banks." This platform .s the mudsill of Democ racy In its pure and virgin statte. Now, let us see further and examine those of I 1844, '48 and 'fid. We find them a repeti lion of the 1840 platturmn a all material I questions. The James Buchanan platform of 1856 t says: "L Declares its trust in the people; de-a nounoes the creed and practice in Fed eralism. 2. Declares ntereal Improvementas n conssitutloeal. 8. Denounces the assumption aof sate debt.. 4 Denouncing the fosterlng of one Ino dustry at the expense of ano.her; de mamds equal rights. L Demands eeesemy. a & Demands that reourds of puble lands be applied te natioal objects, and act d divded among the States. o 7. Desosn~ts matuoes beaks In sahg; go terms. - 8.
