SPIRIT OP THE MOKWIWQ PBES8 The Union, in an article opon the Demo cratic nominations and the Democratic pre?, " The whole country cannot fail to be struck with the spirit of harmony and concession, the self-sacrificing devotion to principle, the union of sentiment and action, and the entireabeenee of conflicting elements, which have charac terized the proceedings of the Democratic National Convention, the labors of which have been brought to a close so full of bright promise to the patriot, and so auspioiouslj for the sopremacy of a party whose triumphs are the triumphs of truth over error, tolerance over bigotry, reason over fanaticism, and equal righta over oppressive privileges The enthusiastic unanimity of Mr Buchanan's nomination is only equalled by the graceful and generous manner in which delegates sur rendered their personal preferences as soon as it came manifest in what direction the hopes and wishes of a majority of the conven tion were directed. In this patriotic sacrifice of preferences, the delegates have shown them selves faithful representatives of true demo cratic constituencies ; for wherever the an nouncement of the nominations has been made, regardless of locality or of previously-ex ] re.-ied wishes, a degree of enthusiasm has been produced almost without a parallel in the history of our presidential campaigns. The Intel!igenctr is devoted to new?.

Bi7.Kk '.h0'7 "r''0"1 <""??in Mr. D called attention to the feet that upon that disturbing element, the vexed question of slavery, the Cincinnati Convention had es tablished a platform which has received the sanction of every Democratic delegate from every state in the Union. Democracy is now the itme in Massachusetts in South Carolina, [applause,] in Michigan, and in Illinois, in Ohio, and Louisiana ; and wherever the Amer ican flag waves there the Democratic creed is one and the same. Can this Union be preserved (he inquired) in the hands of a political party whose prin ciples of action is notility on the part of one half of the States against the rights and insti tutions of the other half of this Union 7 Can sectional strife, sectional animosity, and sec tional warfare?a part cf the North against the South, a part ftf the South again?* the North?produce that fraternal feeling and brotherly love which is essential to preserve the Republio as our fathers made it? Have we not the greatest inducement to stimulate our utmost exertions ? No less than the in tegrity of the Constitution, the preservation and perp?tuity of the Unions depend upon the result of this election We had a candidate for the Presidency whose reputation was as wide, he was about to say, as the Republic, but he would say as wide as civilisation?a man who has filled the highest offices in his country, save that only to Which he is to bo inaugurated on the 4th of March next?| great and ototinued applause |? a man of wide experienco in the House of Representatives, in the Senate, in the cabi net, in the foreign sorvice, and wherever com manding abilities and stern integrity were re quired for the discharge of high duties. Every where in the line of duty you have found James Buchanan elevating his own reputation, while sustaining and carrying forward the in terest and honor of his country. ,He was a man without a stain upon his priva'te charac ter, and with a political rcoord equally un tarnished, from tne days of Jackson down to the present time. Such was the man whom the Democracy had presented to them for their suffrages. The candidate for the Vice Presidency was too well known to a Washington audience to require mush praise. Most of them knew him personally, and all that was necessary was to know him in order to love him. He possessed the highest qualities for the office for which he was now designated, or for a higher station in future years when his expe rience should be more fully matured. The democracy thus had standard-bearers with which they could defy the combined forces of the enemy. They were one compact party, professing one common creed ; and they were arrayed against the allied forces of abolition ism, know nothingism, and every other ism Mr. Douglas proceeded to show up with masterly effectiveness the principles and con duct of the Black Republicans wnoclaim pro tection under the constitution, and refuse to yield obedience to it. The difference between them and the democracy is, that the democ racy support the constitution in all of its parts with fidelity, without reference to whether they like or dislike it It is no excuse for a man to say that he does not like a new law, and therefore will not obey it Did they ever know a criminal who liked the law? [Ap plause.] Law-breakers never like the pun ishment that follows the act Law-abiding men have no fear of the supremacy of the law ; and the question to be decided in this contest is, whetnor a law made in pursuanco of the constitution, and as expounded by the courts, shall prevail, or whether such a law is naught, and whether cowardly leaders may shoot down the officers of the law with im punity. He rejoiced that the convention, by a unan imous vote, had approved of the creed that law must and shall prevail. [Applause j He rejoiced that we had a standard-bearer with so much wisdom and nerve as to enforce a firm and undivided execution of those laws. Mr. Douglas spoke of the brilliant prospect before the Democracy, and in conclusion paid a glowing tribute to the administration of Franklin Pierce. When the history of these times should be written, it would be seen that there never had been a Chief Magistrate who had stood with more religious fidelity by the constitution of his country than has the pre sent Chief Magistrate. [Great applause ] The proudest honor which his suocessor could de sire to have paid to him would be to say that he had been as faithfnl to the consitution and the Union as had been Franklin Pierce. [Re newed cheering ] Mr. D. said that he felt it a duty and a privilege to have the opportunity of saying, under circumstances when there was no danger of misapprehension, what every Democrat Lad in his heart to say, that the country owed an immense, undying obligation to this administration for the fidelity with which the constitution ha3 been upheld and guarded. Judge Douglas having concluded bis speech, not, however, without a very loud speken re quest on the part of the audience to go on, the meeting resolved itself into a procession, and accompanied by the Marine Band, proceeded to serenade the Presidentcf the United Stater. The soene presented in front of the Prtsi dential Mansion, the immense assemblage swarming upon the portico, fences, railings, side walks, carriage way?every available standing place; the heaving to and fro of the clustering masses, and the electric shout that went up as the President made his appcarance at an upper window, will long be remembered. Again and again as the President essayed to speak, would a fresh burst of irrepressible en thusiasm on the part of the people oblige him to pause; but quiet being at length restored, he proceeded as follows: I congratulate you, my fellow-citizens, upon the occasion which brings you here, and I in dulge the confident hope that the j-^y with which you bail the harmonious anl unani mous result of the deliberations at Cincinnati may be strengthened and deepened by the ratifying voice of our countrymen. (Cheers ) It is pleasant to realise that, however other parties may be divided and distracted, there is nothing with us but union of purpose, and will be nothing but union in action. From this hour to that when the polls will *be opened in November all prejudices and personal animosities among those who Bhould cultivate mutual regard and afford mutual support will be laid aside ; nay, even prefer ences, which ciay have existed in our ranks, are already no longer remembered. (Long continued applause.) The preference of tbo convention is the preference in this crisis ot every frioud who cares more for the country than for himself. Devotion to the cause, and an earnest support of the standard-bearers who are to lead us through the great struggle, will constitute the controlling sentiment of tho (ieniocracy, North and South, East and West We are all, I am sure, quite sincere in our convictions that not only the prosperity of the republic, but the perpetuity of this blessed Union, depends essentially upon the vindication and maintenance of the princi ples declared by the recent convention. But these principles can be vindicated and sus tained only by concerted action, and that can Ouly be secured by organisation Hence, fidel ity to this organization and its usages becomes, like fidelity to principles, a cardinal virtue. The latter can only be manifested and made effectual through the former. (Cheers.) My friends will have duties to perform in the canvass which my position alone will pre vent mc from attempting to fulfill in parson. It is never to be forgotten by me that, in 1852, older and better [cries on all sides of 44 no, no, no! not better"] soldiers than myself?men who had been faithful and tried leaders through many years of labor and conflict? were passed by to call me from tho retirement which I had sought, and to which I shall re turn without regret. May I not add, gentle men, that, iflif# be spared, I shall go back to kAjL j0' w7 bit*1 with a consciousness of adopted no single measure of publio Ktl&iJS?i V which I did Uresis of I, * demanded by the best in to Siht on? whicb d<?B not> the approbation of mi Pu?? ] conscience. [Protracted ap The conduct of thoM older and better sol dier. of whom I have spoken, and of the youn ger but nevertheless better soldier? now under my eye-now standing by the great, venera ted, and good man [referring to Douglas and C?ss| who, for so many years has had, not morelv my confidence and re?pect, but my affection, will never cease to be gratefully re membercd bj me. They were all in the field, not merely to encourage and direct, but ac tually to lead the columns. Their energies were not put forth because the standard was in my hands, but because its bearer was, in their estimation, for the time being, the im personation of those sound constitutional prin ciple* which they believe could alone give stability and permanence to this glorious fabric of our institutions. [Applause ] It is cheering to know that the action of the late convention placos the statesmen and pa triots, who are to lead us now, upon a plat form identical, in scope and spirit, with that which I accepted with full conviction of my judgment and with every sentiment of my heart, and that they are to oocupy it with the standard lowered never an inch so far as the strict construction of the Constitution and the vindication of the constitutional rights of every portion of the Union are concerned. [Loud applause] Much and justly as we admire the patriot ism, attainments, and private virtues of our standard-bearers, there will be nothing like man-worship in thia contest. Men become comparatively insignificant, except as instru ments, when great principles and the vast in terests of a country like ours are involved There will be on your part no appeal to un worthy passions, no inflammatory calls for a second revolution like those which are occa sionally reported as coming from men who have nothing at the hands af their govern ment but protection and political blessings, no invocation to the shedding of blood by those who have had none to shed when our country men have stood face to face with foreign foes. But the issue will summon you to a calm, earnest struggle for the Constitution, and, oonsequentlv, for the Union. |Cheers J You will bear yourselves like men deter mined to cling to that sacred instrument as the only security from general wreck, and the only refuge from universal ruin. Men who feel and act with you will cling to it with pa triotic wisdom and steady fortitude, and they will defend it, if need be, with heroic valor against all assaults from without or from within. [Cheers ] That a signal triumph awaits you in such a oause I entertain no doubt. If, as I fully believe, our lathers were not only guided and sustained through the chang ing scenes and struggles of the revolution, but were inspired after its close to devise and adopt this constitution by Omnipotent Power, we may repose upon a bumble but unwaver ing faith that that Power will not permit the madness of their children to destroy it. Accept, gentlemen, by best wishes for you collectively, and individually, and my thauks for this gratifying sail. The immense crowd lingered after the con clusion of the specch, vending up cheer after choer with a warmth and earnestness indi cating unmistakably the love and respect felt by our citizens for President Pierce.

The Democracy of oar citj have been in eciUeie* ever since the nomination! of the Cincinnati Convention wm announced. General Pierce was the first choice of nearly every man among then, but all coincide ia the opinion since the nomination that the nomination of Mr. Buchanan will tend more to unite and harmonise the party, throughout the country, and bring to its support in the coming contest more outsiders than any other man who oould have been nominated. All parties regard the ticket as a very strong one, and many of the more moderate of all parties, as well as the Democracy, its ultimate success as a fixed fact. We learn that the friends of the ticket contemplate having in a few days a grand ratification meeting.' > Yesterday afternoon and evening we were again visited by several heavy thunder storms and drenching rains, accompanied by consid erable quantities of hail; We havo, however, heard of no damage being done. The ladies of Trinity church commence, at Forrest Hall, a fair and strawberry festival this evening.
