end adopted t
A conveulUto of tha representatives of that por
tna of tb peof U ol renucsaoe who bi44 it to be a
jatnoUS du y to ofpur tU prtteaaious of ttat
combination of discordant political elements which
arrogates to itself an exclusive title to the name of ,
Democraef , and claim to be theonly truly national
and constitutional 'jpartj of the country, presents a
soluble cccat-bn for an expression of the lesding
sentiments and principles by wbich their constitu
ents are actuated.
The prtseot administration cf the Gareral Govern- ;
ment, avows the policy of compromising all exist'ng
dissensions, maintaining tbe Constitution inviolate,
cullivstin and preserving peace both in our do
mestic and fun izn relations, so far as it msy be
done consistently with 'the rights, dignity and
honor of the country ; and they ask the confidence
of the people iu the s ncerity of these proleions,
and their competency succ fsfiil'y to ru inuin snd
carry them out. It becomes an intelligent pjop e
to inquire whether any just or rational .r.un'Js
exirt to justify the indulgence of any such con
fidence, when it is well known that the leaoinz and
master spirits of the Administration, and of the
party which sustains it, differ so widely snd radi
cally from each oibr, upon many of the most im
portant question of principle and policy, that it is
difficult to detect any common bond of union be
tween thera, except tbe ambition of peronnl dis
tinction, and the love of official honors and emolu
ments. Tbe bare recital of the questions of great
nd vital interest to the country, and of the points
upon wl i.h these leading spir ts are split and te
r yed in direct antagonism, would seem to ar
eulficient to Satisfy eveu the most credulous that
it would be the height of folly to expect any cor
dial or sticc. sful cn-nperatiou from them in the
fulfilment of tbe promises cf good so lavUbly made
to the country.
It is notorious that while all the leaders of the
party in power rt-puditte the po!i y of eaibaiking
iu any general system of internal improvement, a
respectable portion of them maintain tbe expedi
ency of improving rivers and harbor, and of aiding
in the constructiou of a railway to tbe Pacific ; and
an equally respectable number utterly deny the
constitutional power of Congress to apply the
public treasure to any o ject of internal improve
ment whatever not even to a communication by
railway with the Stales and territories on the Pacific
coast, however important or essential it may be to
tbeir stfety or military protection.
It is i qually notorious that a similar antagonism
of. sentiment and opinion ' exists among them on
the subject of a protective tariff. Mary of tbe
most prominent of them openly etpouse the doc
tiine of free trade, and deny the power ot Cngres9
to impose duties upon imported merchandise for
any other than revenue purposes, wbile anotb r
class boldly snd np?nly assort both the pjwer and
tne policy of fcfLr.liog incidental encouragement
and protection to all the great branches ot domestic
iudu:try and production.
The public land furnishes a further subject, ex
hibiting in a striking manner the inconsistent doc
trines and practices of the leaders of the party ia
power. While all proclaim their earnest determi
nation to upholi the equal rights of tbe States in all
leepect-; they pursue course of policy iothe dis
position of tne public linds the tuost unequal aud
ut just to a part of the States some of the in deny
ing the power of Congress to distiibute among the
S atea e tl er the Ian Is or their proceeds, yet
yield to the demands of that class ot them which
has no scruples as to constitutional power io tank
ing large donations of lauds to tbe States in whkh
tbey lie, thus furnishing ample means for the con
struction of railways and canal-1, aud at the same
lime supplying them with permanent sources of
revenue lor the support of their government-', and
all this they do under a palpable evasion ol their
own constitutional piinciples, assuming as a pre
text or color for the departure from their ptiuii
pies, that these partial distributions of portions of
ih public domain increase the public rev. nue by
enhancing the value of the remainder, aud bribing
thera in ire sptedi'y into tmrket, when, ia fact,
this podcy bas grown up and attained its presmt
er.ormity within a period when one evil of the times
was the larce surplus in the treasury, giving rise
to wasteful eip.m hurts and the niot mischievous
schemes of territorial acquisition and annexation.
If any furthtr evidence wero wanting of the
sinpulaily inconsistent and contradictory views aud
doctrines h li by the leaders of tbe pirty in
power, it might be found in the wtll kuowu di
versity of opinions avowed by them in the inlei
pretatiou of th Kansas Nebra-ka bill, ono division
of them earnestly maintaining that the people of a
territory have the sole aud exclusive right, through
their unitorial legislatures, to regulate tbtir do
mestic inctitutions as tbey thiuk propi r, hilo
anoihi r class of them maintain, with equal earn
estness, tbat the people of a territory bave no
right to exclude slaveiy while their government
continues iu the teriiwrial form some of the
mcrs prominent in the first class, insisting before
the people that tbe provisions of the Kansas Ne-bia-ka
till couatituted a great measure of freedom,
which-, in their operation, would prevent the f.i
maiion of any more slav States, wbile those who
contended for a Liffercnt i.iterp' e-tiou maintained
that the principles of the bill w re es.-ectial to the
interests of the South, in securing the formatiou
aud admis-ion of new slave States. But at the
lat, after bringing the country to tbe vtrge of
civil war, by the agitations attending the sui ject,
and after those who rekindled the fires of that
controversy bad through its instrumeiitility secured
the possession of power, both the fquatter sove
reignty men andjtl.e anli-?qua:t r sovereignty wing
of the party, witti siuguLr coolness, announced to
the woild, that they undirstood, and understood
fr ra the first, that the question about which they
differed was simply one ot constitutional iutirpre
taiioii, and lhai the supreme couit waa the proper
tribunal to decide it. There, let the question rest
now and forever.
But the catalogue of adverse doctrines and
opinioi'8 belJ by separate cl sies ol the leaders
of the pariy ia power, is not yet exhausted.
A lucjjrity of them support the dicbine that
aliens not naturalized according to the laws and
coiu-tituiion of the United Stales, ought to be
allowed the right of suffrage ia tbe Territories
equally with the native born and oaturalixfd'citi
z. ii", while a strong miuoiity protest against the.
allowance of any such privileges to alien inhabi
tants of the Tenitories; and yet, all or nearly all
of them, do not scruple to admit and maintain the
power ot tbe Slates to confer the right of suffrage
upon ali -us within their hmits, io all elections botii
state aud national, any provision ia the coustitutioa
of the Uaited Slates to the contrary notwith
Sucb are the materials of which the psr'y in pow
er ia compounded such the inconsistent and con
tradh lory doctrines and policy of tbe men also
who now control the destinies of the country, and
who claim an txpression io the next August elec
tions of the confidence of the people of Tenn nee
in their disposition and Cip city to govtrn it ia
peace and security to promote Ita pro-p rity to
uphulJ all iis invaluable institutions, and ciny for
ward succ s.-ful y and Iriumphanily the great plyi
of a.ll-govenioieul devised by tbe wi-dom of our
ancestors. Wbeo it is mist notorious, that many
of tbe ruling spirits of the party in power, entertain
setit imeuis, some or a vowed indifference snd others
of ill-roppressed hostility to (be Union itself, how
cn an enlightened peoide, who cherish theUuion,
feel any confidence that such men will not set on
loot new schemes and device cunningly conceived
aud aitfully pressed with 'a view to renew and per
pttuat: the agitation upon a subj-ct, wli b so re- 1
rei tly threatened a fatal catastrophe? When it I
known that the official bead of the p irty entertain
or did, at no late dale, entertain opinions and sen
liments i p in one branch of puMic policy, which, if
carried out, could not fail (o embroil us wiih foreign
powirs, how cau the people have any confiJeoca
id the aseurances held out, tbtt tbe country will not

Upon a review of the whole ground, and consid
ering the magnitude of the intereataiovolved, the
members of t "is convention unanimously and ear
nslly appeal to all those, whether Americans,
whigsvr democrats in their past parly asMK'iations,
abo cannot givt their trust and confiience to auy
such combination of men, a that which, ia tbe

The Convention was then addressed by
Generals Haskell and Qiarles in brief but elo
The Committee having returned with Mr.
Hatton, he was introduced, to the Conven
tion in the midst of enthusiastic applause; and
in a few eloquent and appropriate remarks, x
pressed his astonish menLat the action of the
convention, and acknowledged his gratitude
for the partiality which had been shown him.
The Convention was then entertained by
spirited and eloquent speeches from Messrs.
Pickett, Holland and Ilickerson.
The Convention then adj turned to meet
again together with the masses at 7 o'clock at
Buchanan's majority ia Pennsylvania, over nil
opposition, was 1025. He was beaten io New Jer
sey 5510, and in Illinois 28,285, and in Californit
3523. Pennsylvania is the only ne Stale wbich
gave Buchanan a majority, lie only received forty-five
per cent, of the votes of tbe country. The
whole vote is about four millions. Buchanan re
ceived one million eight hundred tbousind. lie is
a minority PresiJent. Pierce beat all opposition
by twenty-four thousand votes. Fourteen Free
States voted for Pierce only four for Buchanan.
Eleven of these gave Pierce a clear majority over
all oppositiou, and only one a nvjwity fur Buch
anan. Buchanau is in a minority by 380,000. Fre
mont received one million three hundred and fif y
thousand and Fillmore not quite nine hundred
thousand votes. We append the reflections of the
Fredonia Advertiser upon the facts we have stated:
"The balmce of power res's. as mil be seen,
with the Fillmore vote; a vote which, wtll says the
Yoik Eipr-'Ss, is eminently Anieriran, coil
s rvative and national. Il came from every Sttte in
the Union when there wasa popular vote, South Car
olina being the exception, and was purely Ameri
can and patriotic. Ia the Ftttes like Kentucky,
Tennessee, Louisiana the conservative States of
the South It ran close on to the vote of the suc
cessful cmtlidtte, and would hive 1 -d there, as
lewhere, but for the successful cry cf Democrats
South and Republicans North, that 'Mr. Fillmore
bad no chance.' Considering the excitement which
e xi.-ted in the two sections of the c luutry at the
recent election, Mr. Fillmore, as the middle man,
has no occasion to feel mortified at the vote he re
ceived; and if we add to the fact that thia 880,000
votes were, with few exceptions, 'native at d to
the manor born, be may well feel proud ol the men
who gave him tnrir codfidence and suppoat;
and who, we may add, esteem him, personally
just as high in defeat ss it be had been successful."
There is nothing in tbe results of the recent con
test to discourage one who has adopted the creed
of the American party. Fcemont is not a candi
date now, and men can again votj from the con
victiocs of their judgments rather than be influ
enced by a miserable trick of demagogues which
controlled tbe last canvas iu Tennessee. We
bave no fears as to the result of the next State
LclIons in Tennessee; this honeot, conservative
State is neither cold to the Dutch nor to the agra
rian Bed Republican Andrew Johnson Democracy
IIou. John Hell.
There are but few, if any, remaining in the A-
merican S-nate who were there in the day ol
Webster, Clay and Calhoun, whoe earnest appeals
in behalf of thest butes have been more forcibly
impressed upon the minds of the people than tbe
ever to be renumbered efforts of Senator Bell.
In lact, a tho ijfbt of this distinguished gentleman
carries our mind back to the days of Aristidiaa
Justice, and aa the eloquence of Cicero drove the
con-ptrtor Cataline Iroin Rome, in like manner has
the votes Cf John Bill always aided in crushing
any dogma thU appeared to threaten tbe well be
inzof our country. Neither political fame or po-
liticil favor has ever caused him to swerve from
what he considered his duty, but at all times aud
under all circumtauces, whether in Congree or
before the people, he bas constantly and fearlessly
advocated whatever he conceived to be best, re
gtrrtk'M of the threats of any political party or
chque.but with the bravery ola Leoni fas be has stood
fearlessly and battled for years agaiust every tiling
hat threatened to burst asunder the chains that
biund our ship of State to our glorious Constitu
lion. or these reasons we honor Sir. 1J.IL ami
feel that everything that we are capable of utter
ing would fall short of doing justice to bis sterling
worth, patriotic devotion and iiestimable services
inbrhalf of b'isc uoiry. Would to God that the
same feelings burned in tbe hearts of every mem
ber of our government as tho which clow with
such brilliancy in the bosom of Mr. Bell, for then
indeed tbe same feeling that caused Mr. Webster
to eiclaim "our country our whole country and
nothing but our country" would be felt wiiti sucb
tremendous power iu that assembly that do one
would bave the courage to propose any measure
tbat in the least threatened tbe wtlare of our
common country. And it must be equally as grat
ifying to Mr. B. 11 as to I ia friends to ttiiuk, that in
the entire course of p l.tical life he bus never
cast bis vote for any measure that ought not to
bave received the bearty approval of every true
lover of bis countaj's welfare. In sawtig what we
do of Mr. Bell, we lee I we but otter the st uuweuts
of every conservative man, not only iu our own
State, but ia every Bute of the Uuion, and that
they io common with os delight t share ita auy

' The Land Fever.
The following paragraph from the Philadelphia
Enquirer g'ves some striking illustrations of tbe
prevailing land fever. To prudent men, it ia nu:H
ciect to cot a these facts. There never was land
speculation, in this country jet, which did not re
sult i isastrourly. So solid is the prosperity of the
country now, that this may be lee so ; Dal that
there Is to ba a re-aciioa cannot be denied :
"This fever prevails to a far greater extent tho
most persons imagine. a bave beard of several
eouuti' s io the interior cf the State, la which from
one hundred thousand to three hundred thousand
dollars bave b. a raided by sgent and ortt-r-. and
sol westward, for tha purchase of lands. Iu aoioe
eaae,old farmers bave gtthered their families, told
