TIlE Ct)NVENTION OF AUIUS: T 31.
The newo Conressional Cbrrnlion which has been
proposed to be held in Baton Rouge on the 314 of
August next, to nominate a new candidate for Con
gress for this District, has now become a fixed fact.
Although every parish in the District may not send
their delegates, there cannot be any doulbt that a
majority of them will, and that majority will be com
posed of the largest and most Democratieparishes in
What course that Convention may take is a matter
of future consideration which the Convention itself
will determine upon when It shall assemble,. If Col.
Davidson should think proper to take the advice of
the Louisi an Coubriur and withdraw fromt his present
position, then all disseltions may be healed and all
doubts bh solved as to the union and sceCns of tilhe
D)emocracy of the District. In such aln event, shouldl
it transpire in time, then the Convention might be
Indcned to forego any predilcetions in favor of other
prominent gotlentlentlen, for time thno beng, look
ing beyond serious oljections and grave faults now,
in order to a future soliid and stern resistance to
any secret combinations and ontlldo influences with
in tile Democratic party, to control and misdirect
the energies of the Democracy of this District for
the selllsh agrandisement of a few who constitute
the spoils portion of the I)emoeracy. ULpon thise
point the States Ilights Dem)c cracy of this District
are firmly determined for all the future, nor will
they countenance any Fuch secret comldinatiolns or
organizations wherever they may lind them, or whom
soever may uphold them in any quarter of the State.
Yet we have very little imopes that the spolls De
mocracy of this District will incline to any course
that omay conduce to the stuccess if ollr principles,
their motto novw scenms to lb, snen, not lmeaslure., and it
we may judge from the violence of their deuncela
tion and abuse of those who will not join them in
their erratic and passionate career, in one deternmin
ed course, then we need scarcely expect that the np'
proaching convention will have any other dulty to
perform than that which shall place the States Ilights
Democracy of the District on the most honorable
basis, elevated by the highest and purest principles
and ennoble by their steady adherence to those prin.
olples above all tile allurements of ollicial spoils or
the seductions of secret oflicial schemers.
First-It will then devolve upon the convention
to nominate a candidato every way worthy of the
coonidence and support of the States Rights Demoo
racy of the District, and we have many who are
worthy of the high honor and w]ho wouldl do battle,
most nobly, in so good a cause,
Or second-If clrcumstances should present them
selves which shall decRlo the convention not to make
a nomination, tlien, in that case it will doubtless
construct tie basis of our future Setion, organise
the true I)emocracy of the District and determine to
mualntain a "masterly inactivity" bfr the present.
For the Feliciann !Demnocrat.
V1IIlNIA, KANSAS, G()V. WALKER.
The presses and politicnn+, who have gotten up all
the, fuss and clamor alout Governor Walker and
Kansas, not content with assaillng the ndnlnilstra
lion:of J'ames ltnchanan, for what they are pleased
to condemn as wrong in the policy and cool let of
the former, who they alledge hals sought to bil for
the Presidency, by favoring the freesoilers, in telling
the people of that territory, the new constitution
must be submitted lo the people for ratilicaltion or
rtjection-- Iuit these pecnlr tar uarlinns of the Inter.
est of the South, have discovered that Virginia, the
glorious old dominion is not sound on the slavery
question. Great God! to what point of the compass
of destruction are we tending? That glorious old
mother oft tatre and Statesmen. not sound on the
slavery question! A State that never gave any but
a Demnocratic votel That never wavered in her
support of state rights or of the Union ; A state that
has ever planted herself upon the ramparts of the
Constitution, and defended It all times as the sheet
atnchor of our political safety. To Virginia and Iher
political state rights school of politicians and states
men, Is the South and nation indebted for the site
ceess of our political system. It is to her we turn in
every trying hour when the Union Is threatened with
destruction, for wisdom in council, and safety in
action. She saved the Union and preserved the con
stitution, when the alien and sedition laws. threat
ened to pervert our beautiful system of confederated
States into a great central power and ultimately
into a monarchy or despotism. 1Her memorable resc
olutions antl report of 1705 and 1709, will forever
stand nut. as a monument to her wisdom and lirne
ness on that menorable and trying accalonl. She
saved the 'Union again when nlliticntion nnd nmril
ambition, sought to place South Carolina in a tren
sonnble attitude towards hier sisters, and the govern
tnent estalilshed for the ceantnonl good of all the
Stlates. Again when JKnow-NothingmisI threatend
to destroy the Constitltion, and stubhitnte a secret
politlrnl organization in plnee of the governlment
which the people hid chbosen cand their agents had
sworn to support: when Abolitionism hid fair to
role or ruin the nation, and delutlon swept over. the
land as the hlmoon sweeps over the desert, it was
left for glorious old Virginia to say to the polittral
monster "thus far shalt thOti go and no furtlhr."
Led on by her indomninale Wise, she at once put a
stop to Know-Nothingism ; exposed its origin, nimtn.
ant deformitles to the indignation and abhorrene, ol
the whole American people. From that day tiue
march of Know-Nothingism was arrested and It haes
gone down so low, in public estimation, tha:t It ihs
scarcely left a wreck behlind. Int every crisis thow
ever trying and dangerous, and under all circent
stances however gloomy and threatening, the samue
wilsdotm in council and firmness in action, have char
coterlzed her course. 1Her history is one brigiht
page of political conmisleney antl of' h,'rn i. diietlion
to the Constltution. the rights of the States and lit,
union of the States.
A Plate that has ever stood foremost and lilnest.
In defence of onuthern rights and .Southern Inltitl
tionl. not sound on the slavery question ! The nnerl'

of the Democratic party could for a momnent enter.
tain such a false and gronuless Chargel , ngainst a
State that has never, not oven for oncc faltered or
failed In her support of Dh)moceratle men, and Ikmu
cratic measures, from the foundation of the govern
ment up to the present moment. Does not this fact
of Itself prove to a great extent that thc!e politielan:
and presses, are not reliable themselves so far as
soundness on National Democratic prlinciples are
concerned. I would not rxlst any man or set of menr
that would attempt to cast doubt or odium upon
old Virginia. She stands above reproach : panoplidl
in her own'political armour, which her Illhttrion,
Jefferon, Madison. Taylor, and other distingulnheid
public'men made for her at thile eginning of our nl
tlonal progress. hoe is impregnable and can will
defy the assaults of political enlinies us well as pre.

whoreas the policy and practice of the I)emocratic
party both North and South, is neither to legislate
slavery hlto any territory, or out of it, ulit to leave
the matter to lie decided by Teo ieople themselves,
who reside there, and are to be elCbeted J)y it. This
policy does not suilt the views of these extremle elln,
