It is not my purpose to trespass upon your time with a speech That duty will be discharged by gentlemen distinguished for their ability, ana who will, doubtless, cause all he?itatin? If there is one of such within the reach of mv voice, to realize, when they shall have addressed you, that there Is but one duty left for every national man in the country, and that is to rally around the standard that will be borne in the canvass by the valiant young Kentuckian and the chivalrous soldier of Oregon. Again returning to you my thanks, fellow-citlz^ns, for the honor you have conferred upon me. the Chair announces that he is now ready to receive any propositions that may be submitted.

K'solvi, That the principles of the national democratic party, a^retd to at the National Dem ocratic Convention which assembled at the Maryland Institute, Baltimore, have oar most hearty aad cordial concurrence. Retoired, That we reprobate and condemn the Intolerant and anti-democratic action taken by the Convention at the Front street Theater,Baltimore, In excluding the regularly elected delegates from several of the sovereign States of this I n.on; that we deem such action revolutionary and disorganizing in its character, and as justly dtserving the condemnation of the American democrat y. Resolved, That we render our special thinks to the members of the Convention for presenting th" name* of John C.

Rtsolvt'l, That we sternly condemn the doctrines and purposes of the political party known as the black republican We regard them as s ibversive of the Constitution the rights of the slaveholding states and this District. Of necessity, they foment strife between the North and the South, interrupt the peaceful flow of their busint-ss intercourse, and. if persisted in. directly or ^directly, must endanger the |? rp^tuity of the I nion. bringing not only dishonor upon the American name, but untold calamities upon our couutry. To repel such a foe from the citadel of the Constitution, to preserve the Union of our Father* and. as we trust, of our children's children, let us all, citizens by birth or adoption, stand pledged heart with heart, hand in hand. Rtioa ed, That, both as fellow-democrats and u citizens and neighbors, it is a most pleasing and grateful duty to express our high estimation of the ability ana integrity with which our Government has been administered by our venerable snd experienced President, James Buchanan. We approve the policy of his Administration, and we believe that his mailgnera and traducer* will only be saved from oblivion, If saved at all, by the record of their infamous assaults on bis personal character and public Administration James M.

Tb? clouds which seemed at first but tbe size of a man's band, have thickened and blackened, until tbe whole beavena seem to be obscured, a id we can scarcely perceive a ray of hope for our country's future; men have been swayed tj and fro b/ passion. and byopiuiou; old party ties and old pirtv ramparts bave been broken down It seems as if some mighty convulsions like tbose which bave marked tbe history of tbe material world, have cleft tbe rock-bound mountain and made chasms, with roaring torrents between those parts which seemed to be eternally united In this state of things well may men be gathering in all part* of the country, aoiloualylaking counsel with each other, and looking abioad to see what is best to be done for the Constitution and the Union. For my own part, in my humble course of life, I have had but one support, that of fkir. open, manly, candid principle By that star 1 have paddled iny little canoe along tbe stream of life Indeed, it h-irdlf deserves s bolder figure, but let me expand It ana say that the combined aruiles of tbe world not steering by that same star, must sooner or later, by the force of truth, be flung upon the * shore In disjointed fragments. Principle, candor, fairness, and maoiiness .irs, or ought to be, tbe great guiding stars iu all tbe transactions of men lu puDllc ana private (.Appiaim ; .Nov, geottegien, iUad with iu?

First let me name one whichcombines the fossil remains of a once glorious party?a party which, whatever may have been its errors, the progress of time has exhibited, all men of all parties now concur in describing as a nobly I patriotic party; that party at whose head tbe form of Henry Clay blazoned like an archangel; [applause;] that party which through all time, from it* commencement until its dissolution, was slways found by its enemies to be an open. fair, candid, manly party. Alas: alas' gentlemen) the areat ~"u ? ? j,m*u mi magnanimous heart, too great to Deat time to anything lew than the triumphal march of hit whole country?the great leader gone, the ideas wbi ;h had controlled and governed hi* life having become obsolete in the gigantic stride of the nation's progress; his followers are scattered. Some of them, ah. gentlemen, too many of them, took dark lanterns into their bands, and dived Into caves, lurking about In dark holes and corner*, inventing countersigns, and swearing oaths, from which, like Herod, they started back aghast, when they *aw to what it had brought them. Jl.aughUr and applause ] Some others rematned In petrefaction, and went to Sleep like Rio Van wlakU 1? ?1 " _r .? ??t uioaimil^ uuiy oi the name of him, and clinging to the shadow when the substance waa gone Some others, among them. Abe Lincoln, flung themselves headlong into the vortex of al*>litionlsm, and clutched the Constitution of the country, seeking to drown it in their accursed grasp. But let us pass over this for the present. 1 shall have a word to say relative t? bim by and by. This party, which now styles Itself the Constitutional i nion party, presents itself with tbe scattered fragments, and endeavors to unite these various element* into one great cauldron; and out of this great cauldron, which they are stewing together, they expect, by some strange witchcraft, a stalwart form to come forth and form a great party, and lead tbem to victory Heaven knows how thit Is to be accomplished. It reminds me of Macbeth's double cauldron, in which "black spirits and white, blue spirits and grey," were mingling. [Laughter ana applause ] Next in the category we have the black republican party I suppose merely to mention its ionic an tuai is necessary to be said upon the subject in this latitude. Yet i must say, 1 have been struck to-day with reading a letter written by the head of that party, in which he ha* the boldne&s?ay. I ought rather to say the audacity? to proclaim the doctrine which would have come more fitly from the mouth of an assassin rather than from the Hps of a United States Senator. The letter, gentlemen, which you may have seen In public print, was addressed to some persons in the city of Boston, In which he, in substance, uses this language: "Whenever the conflict shall arrive between petsonal liberty and personal property, property must give way to lil>erty." What Is thai? It is to say to the slaves of the South, and to fling It in the teeths of their masters, that whenever the slave feels able and willing to strike the blow, that he is bound to pr< olaim his liberty, even though it be over the mangled corpse of bis master, and the lifeless forms of women and children. I say, gentlemen, that the dangerous sentiment of the irrepressible conflict first announced by Abraham Lincoln, printed and circulated throughout the country, stamps his party with an atrocity which has never before reared its u ?i t.. - * - - ucau ui any iiaiionai conies; in tDia country. Gentlemen, who is be who ban received tbe nomination of that party' Tbey call him Abraham Lincoln?tbe ghost of John Brown?[laughter]?the only ditference is that the ghost talks, while John Brown acted and gave his head to the hangman. [L.iuyhter ] Now all 1 can say is. I propose no suchTate for Mr. Lincoln, but the old rail-splitter who splits rails, might. I think, be ridden on tbe first rail he ever split, [laughter.] if these are his sentiments; and 1 would be willing to have a hand at it myself, though not much given to those sort of things [Laughter ] Well, what have we next' The other party in the field Is that of squatter sovereignty. Aoout this 1 shall say little or nothing, because it is the topic which i>roperly belongs to tbe gentleman behind me. That party, with an arrogance which 1 s e - - ? " * * i coniess 11 wen calculated to aUennfe those who upon otber points feel with them, and still desire to unite with them, claim to be the only national democratic party. Mr. Miles Taylor, chairman of that committee, has taken tbe pains, without anybody's askUig him, to say ' .Vo" upon the supposed proposition of some sort of combination It will be time enough when the jieople?not the politicians, not the men who went to Charleston (lK>und, as it were, by some mysterious chain which nobody else can comprehend) to maintain a single point of difference against all other points of harmony It will be for the people to say. when they render an account of their stewardship. when tte electors come to be chosen, whether thev mean to confirm and adopt this doctrine of squatter sovereignty, which, after all, is that distinct mark which these gentlemen think entitles them to the aDDellation of tin> ?m? tional democratic party. I am no prophet, nor the son of a prophet, but I venture t?i prtdict that before the autumn leave* are falling, the lion'* kin will )>e stripped from the donkey'* hide and the "Little Giant'' will turn out to be nothing more than a gigantic pigmy. [Laughter and applause ] Gulliver, you know, was a giant among the Lilliputians, and a pigmy among the Brobdignags; but he was all the time the same man? not an inch more nor less in stature. But I leave this To me It is a painful and unpleasant topic. What 1 have said has only been provoked by th?se arrogant pretenders, who seem to say that whoever seeks U> belong to the great national conservative democratic party, is bound to swallow, whether he desires to or not, this doctrine of squatter sovereignty The remaining party, and the last of which I shall speak to you. is tnat whose banner has been C-intided to the bands of John C. Breckinridge ?nd Jcseph Lane, m<?n who have hazarded tbeir lives on the lleld of battle in bearing aloft that <r 1 sv?41 A? 1 v .vi bwiiuuiu "uicu ?uw ui'au ao mnjpfitically above us. [Loud applause ] Men who, in the council and in the field, have alike shown steadfastness of purpose and true sincerity in every relation of life [Applause ] Now, why is not this the national democratic party? As I said, it is alleged because it rejects the doctrine of squ-itter sovereignty. Is that it? What our |>arty contends for is the equal rights of all the btaWs and all the citizens of all the States He then proceeded briefly to lay down the demo cratic doctrine with regard to the occupancy of the Territories of the I nited States, and closed with the following earnest appeal to all lovers of their country : If there is a spot on the face of the earth, within the broad expanse of this In ion, Wounded by the lakes and gulfs, and between oceans?if ther* la oue ingle spot where men should stand by the Coustitutiou and the Integrity of this Union, In respect to the lights of the whole Union, in respect to every matter connected with the Federal government, above all, it is this spot, hallowed by the footstep* of Washington, itself marked with bis immortal name! The speaker, on retiring, was vociferously cheered. SPEECH OF JUDGE MEEK . Judge Meek, of Ala , was next Introduced to the audience He alluded to the immense gathering which he siw before him. and regarded it as particularly titling that such a meeting should be held in the National Metropolis. This meeting presented a striking contrast with the meagre gathering here a few nights ago to ratify the nomfnatioc of the Little Giant. That was a mere jury, wane tins wsi tne yrand inquest of tbc nation. The name of Breckinridge was connected with glorious historical incidents; it was a name connected with principle He was a noble man, and. although young, tie has acquitted hipiaelf in every position in wblch be hcs been placed with eminent dignity and ability. Hedid not obtrude himself on tne Con ventlon,but he had been selected on -account of bis qualifications. At first be declined, but heat length yielded to the solicitation* of his friends. The other name on our ticket w. tbat of gallant Joe Lane, [cheers.J the Marion 01 tieArrnv Judge M. proceeded to give a rapid sketch of the prominent events in the life of Geu. Lane from bis youth down to the period of the Mexican war, showing his gallantry in those bloody engagements Some one had spoken sneerimrlv of Joe Lane's millt*r?? ?><?.<? >?. ?... ? / ? ?? j ?v? ? ??

(Laughterand applause J He went on to give a sketch of tbe manner of Koceedlng at the Charleston Convention. showg how the friends of Douglas bad practised all kinds of maneuvers to effect their object, and bad declared that be should be nominated if it blew ' the democratic party into ten thousand fragments. After all their foul cheating round the board, they were unable to nominate nlm, and adjourned to meet at Baltimore. There they admitted men who were not democrats and had no credentials, simply because tbey would agree to vote for DougLas It was a foregone conclusion. Tbe bogus delegates from Georgia were not admitted b-cause tbey would not pledge themselves to vote for Douglas, snd in rejecting them they rejected Herscbel V. Johnson, whom they afterwards nominated for Vice President! [Applause ] Why, Herscbel V. Johnson is one of tue worst Are-eaters iii the South Judge M. vindicated the people of Alabama from the charge of being disunion lata. Seceding from the rotten rem nan ta of a corrupt party la not a secession from the Union, [cheers.1 Tbesoliof Alabama waa baptised by the blood of Jackson; and hia spirit still walks her hills and dales, and keeps the tres of patriotism burning brightly' [Cheers] But we want a Union under the Constitution, and that Conatitution, Milton's angel, vital In every part that cannot by annihilation die i)oea the nomination of Breckinridge and Lane look like disunion ? Breckinridge comes from the very centre of the I'alon, and all over the country, from North to South, from Eaat to Wart, the response la coming up from the I people In behalf of the nomination of Brectteridge and Lane! [biitbusiastic applause ] UPKKCII or HON I I. STIVBXS. Got Ptevena. of Orewon, next addressed ti?e aasemblage He remarked that, ordinarily, tbe apeaker at a democratic meeting had none hut pleasing topica to refer to; but on this occasion the caae wu different There bad lately been a most daring and peraiatent effort made to wrest tbe democratic party from ita purpose*; it had been held up that there was but one man that could save the country. In former times we bad heard of the "one nun power," and that charge waa made against the man who had sived tbe country from toe Dilla^e of * k..? r _ - ? BI'IIJ) wu? now we see the "one man power" applied in a diflersnt way. He proceeded to give a sketch of the proceedings it the Charleston Convention, when the fifteen Southern State* stood together; and with them were the two State* on the Pacific coast That majority platform was not only approved of by a majority of the States, but oy a majority of the Convention. The proceedings subsequently at Baltimore have already been sufficiently referred to. The delegates from the Southern States admitted Into the Front street Theatre Convention have been styled "bogus"' delegates; and the press and telegraph are every day proving the truth of that Herschel V. Johnson, the squatter-sovereignty candidate for Vice President, recently n>aae a speech, and at lta close was burned in effigy. Re was repudiated by his own people But the true national democracy have laid down rviotf^rm ? ^ . ? mm | '?V? ISA T U A VA r^UI" bodies the principle that it is the duty of Government to protect the property aa well as the Uvea of our citizens in the Territoriea. California and Oregon are far removed from this sectional controversy; they are filled up by citizens from every State, and ttiey stand by the ticket we now present All we h<ve to do Is to fight boldly ana persistently, and the fourth of March next will find the true democracy in possession of the reins of Government [Applause 1 There were loud calls for Gov. Wis?, but It wes announced that he was not present. SPEECH OF HON A. G. BROWS. Gov A. G. Brown, of Mississippi, was next introduced, and was received with great applause. He remarked that no people had a deeper interest In the preservation of the Union than the citizens of Washington. His record in the proceeding* of Congress would attest that he was no disunionUt. He represented no disunion constituency; that constituency were in favor of dealing out equal and exact justice to every section. If the U nion is in danger, it can alone be saved by acting on this principle of equal justice to all. Let this II-? t ? uuairriiiig oeiween sections cease, and let the North ana South love each other as thev did in the days of tbe Revolution. Then tbe Union will be safe But we all know that thi? kind of ju?ttce has not been awarded to the South; they have been excluded from a portion of the common domain, and told that they must yield. He could ay that his people never would yield; and if they did, much as he loved the sunny South, he would t<irn bis back on it forever The nomination of Breckinridge and Lane would cause a thrill of jov from the Atlantic to the Pacific. He had confidence In the American people; he had only to ask, " Are we right " and if we are, he had confidence that we should have a glorious victory. [Applause ] srEKCH or HON. JEFFERSON DAVIS. Hon. Jefferson Davis was next introduced, and ...i * v. n 1?

Florence, of Pennsylvania, made a brief but telling speech On his concluding a lett<r was read from Hon L) S. Dickinson, of New York,.who was unable to be present, stating, that being engaged to speak in New York city on tbe iOth, be could not consistently visit both places now. After three hearty cheers for the nominees, tbe vail assemoiage moved in processleii, with flays flying and drum* beating,down Louisiana avenue to Pennsylvania avenue, and thence to the Kxecutive Mansion, for the purpose of paying tbeir respects to the Chief Magistrate of the nation. Arriving at the White House, tbe band performed several stirring airs; after which three enthusiastic cheers were "iven for Mr Buchanan. The President appeared at the window, and acknowledged the compliment with a polite bow, and then addressed them as follows: PRESIDENT Bt'CIIANAN* SPEECH. After thanking tbein for their kindness in calling upon him, be alluded in the most complimentary terms to their candidates. Breckinridge and Lane, aid they had distinguished themselves >>oth in the civil and military departments of the Government, and In bis opinion no better selection of standard-bearers could have been made to lead their party to victory, than those whose banner they hid unfurled that evening. Speaking of tbe merits of these distinguished men, be said: Amoug their many other worthy qualities tbe fact that they are friends of the equality of the iiuwPwi irn Vlti tL is I ! ? * *? ?>wico v? iii la VUIVII III ilitf C OU.IIIOI1 territory of the country should (-specially cause you to give tbern your earnest support. [Cries of ' Goo<f''| They will stand by that principle, and who should not? Kquallty is equality. Kvery citizen of the United States is equal before the Constitution and the laws of the I nit-*d States; and why should net the sovereign States of this Union preserve and enjoy that perfect equality which each one of their citizens under the Constitution enjoys? [Applause J This is sound democratic doctrine i.iberty and equality are the birthright of every American citizen; and just as certain as the day succeeds the night, so certain will this principle of democratic justice 1?revail at last [Applause.] It must prevail, lilt luifnro I amtnl- *1%*- : ? * 1 Wb*v>v 1 4UHUQI W|n/ll lUiB 9<liljCCl. illiU 1 do not suppose 1 shall detain you long, i wUL to remove one stumbling block out of the way. I have ever been a friend of regular nominees; i have never struck a political ticket in my life. .Now, was there anything done at Baltimore to bind the lolitical conscience of any sound democrat, and to prevent him from supporting Breckinridge and Lane' [" No," and applause ] 1 was cotemporary with the abandonment of the old congressional convention, or rather caucus sy>t?m. It was a long while ago, and probably but very few of you remember it. But under the old congressional caucus rule no one was admitted except democratic members of the Senate and House. Under that system there never was any danger that members outside of the democratic party could Impose a candidate upon the States, which were democratic, and which could alone elect him after he was proposed. There was no danger of that kind, because there being no persons in the caucus except democratic members of Congress, that afforded a perfect assurance that ih?? nominee 01 me party would at le^t be agreeable to the democratic States. Tbiscongreaaional <invention system was broken up. The national convention succeeded. Whether it was wisely broken up or not, I shall not now pretend to say. But upon the organization of the national convention, which admitted all the states of the Union, according to the number of their Seuators and Rep resvntatives, it was at once discovered that it was possible for the anti democratic States in the national convention, combined with a very few of the democratic ones, to impoae a candidate upon the party at any time, who was objectionable to the State* that would be called unnn tn him. And that, It wu foreseen, would weaken the strength, and destroy tbe energy of the party. It was a substitute for the rule observed in the congressional caucus, to which 1 have referred, and of the same effect It was believed at the time, for 1 was part and parcel of tbe movement, that in the two-thirds rule there would always be a majority of democratic States satisfied with the nominations and ready to rush into tbe contest, to elect the candidate. The two-third* rule, tnen, was the main pillar of the national convention. Jt has been destroyed at Baltimore, and tbe national convention his stumbled Into ruin as a national convention. The wisdom of the two-thirds rule, however. Ts manifest from the present condition of the affairs of the country. If it bad prevailed, no candidate could have been nominated against the expressed will of every democratic State in the Union, against the expressed views of nearly every democratic senator in the Union, and o:' three fourths of the democratic representatives This two-thirds rulej then, has been prostrated, and there is nothing in the way of any d?mo< rat voting for Breckinridge and Lane in tbe proce din^a of the assemblage at Baltimore. It must be con fess-d. however. that Breckinridge Is In tbe same condition with Douglas in tuis respect Tbe convention that nominated him, although it wucunposed of nearly all the democratic state*, did not contain two-thirds; and therefore every democrat I isat perfect liberty to vote as bethinks proper, without running counter to any regular nomination of tbe party [Three enthusiastic cheers were here given for the nominee* ] Well, now, after this digression; afler relieving myself from ull responsibility, I will now make a few remarks to vou, stating the reasons wby 1 prefer Breckinriage and Lane to any and all the other candidates In tbe Held. [Loud applause ] The sovereign States of this Union are one vast partnership. Tbe Territories were acquired by tbe common blood and the common treasure of them all. Each State, and eacb citizen of each State, has the same right In tbe Territories tlirr anv other nn<if if w hut tKo r? party contend for, and what is the true practical democracy; Is that all shall enjoy the same rigbU; and that all shall be subject to the same usages Mr Breckinridge holds that this Government wcs formed for the protection of life, liberty, and property. They are the objects for the protection of which all Governments were established; but It Is sought now to place the property of the citizen undtr what is called property "squatter soverelgnty," in the power of the Territorial Legislature, to be confiscated at their will and pleasure. That Is the principle sought to be established a1 present; and there seems to be an entire mistake and misunderstanding in a portion of the public mind on this subject When was property ?vei submitted to the will of the inijority' ["Never," "Never "] If you bold property as an individual, you bold It independent of Congress, of the StaU Legislature, or of the Territorial Legislature. II Is yours, and your Constitution was made to protect your private property against assaults of legislate powers ["Good,1' tad applause ] 0 WWt, now, any state. (a voice?" Go It, old man,"] any art of principles which will drprive you of theperfe't control of vonr ova property, Is wrong. Thia right over your otfrti property I conceive to be tne very ewnce of republican government. Deprive you ob this, and you become a slave; for the maa who has power over your property to confiscate it, hss power ov?r ' your means of subsistence And yet it Is contended that although the Constitution of the l!n;t-d States confers no sur.h power, yet a few. me.i called the territorial legislature, in their rerao'e extremity of the coun r/. can confiscate your property and send you sway deprived of it. [' Can't do it."l There is but one mode, and one -lone, by which the citiien can be deprived of hia slave property in the territories That modi' 1j pointed out in the Cincinnati platform, which has be?>n,aayou know, greatly misrepresented That platform declares that when a stirticient nnmhor of roai *? - * '* * ~ .v?<uvu?i **ix, miyovcu in a miliwiy in j order to form a State and come into the Union, and when the people frame a constitution, then thev may decide for themselves the question whether they will have slavery or not. There ! no territorial legislature mentioned in the Cincinnati platform. There ia no squatter sovereignty there It presents the clear principle that at the time the people form their constitution, they shall then decide whether they will have slavery or not. And yet it has been stated over and over again that in accepting the nomination under that platform, I endorsed tne doctrine of squatter sovereignty. 1 suppose you have heard it all over the country; it bas been repeated In a thousand newspapers A voice.?We knew they lied. The President.? I am glad you knew it [Laughter.] Now, bow well this plain principle nf rnnKtitnfiAn?l 1 >- ?*' * A v. vV??<?>u?iwuai law l/Vl I capuilUS Willi Hit* WIl interests of the people. Under it emigrants from the North and the South, from the hast and the West. receive their benefits They carry with them that property which they suppose will best promote their material Interests, they live together in i>eace and harmony. The question of slavery will become a foregone conclusion before ttey have population sufficient to ask for admission into the Union. There w 11 be no '-bleeding Kansas ? in the Territories; the people there will all live together in peace and narmony, promoting peace In the Territory and their own prosperity, until the time arrives when it becomes necessary to form a State Constitution Then the whole question will be decided to the satisfaction of every one. But upon the other principle what do von find in the Territories? Why, that they are fighting all the time One territorial legislature may establish slavery and another territorial legislature may abolish it, and so the struggle will be prolonged; and in spite of their continuous industry and earnest endeavors to promote prosperity, they will be in a state of constant turmoil, just as we have witnessed in Kan&ts Therefore there is nothing?no power possible?that could be so injurious tOjthe pea< eatid prosperity,as this doctrine which has been denominated 'squatter sovereignty." [Laughter ] >iow let me pi ice it before you in another point of view. I am very much gratitied that you h ive listened to a plain speech from an old man with6o much attention. [-Go on!" and applause.] The Southern States can never give up their principle of eonalitv in the I ninn . , I I " '" I never''and apilause] because if they did, they would be self-degraded in the eyes of the world They would stand before their couhtrymen as inferior to the people of their sister States They never ran surrender it. But how is it with the Northern people? It is with them comparati vely a mere abstraction. With the South it is of infinite importance that they should preserve their equal sovereignty in the Union What has the South to do? Merely to say that as good and honest citizens they will yield obedience to the Supreme Court, ana thus admit the right of a Southern niau to take his property into the Territorits just as a Northern man may do. And it is to me a most extraordinary thing that this country Mould now l>e dl t-acted and divided because certain persons of the North will not agree that taeir IretLren in the South shall have the same rights in all the Territories which thev of the North enjoy. \V hat could 1 as a Pennsylvanian ?iy or or, ii someone were to contend that the Territorial Legislature of anv Territory should exclude my cattle from that Territory? The principle is exactly the same, and the Supreme Court of the United states de< ided?what was known to us all to be the existing state of atfairs for 5U years?that slaves are property Admit that fact and you admit everything Then that property in the Territories must be protected in precisely the same manner as any other prooerty would be. If it be not protected in the Territories in the same manner, the owners are degraded before the world. [Applause J But we have "non-intervention." Non-intervention. it is said, it the true policy. That is the 14 let lone'' policy?let things go their own way What is this non-intervention f Perfectly right We all admit that the Congress of the I'nlted states hat uo authority whatever to establish, to impair, or to abolish the ri^ht of a master to slaves In the Territories, or the right of an owner of any * 11 ? ? " oim*r proprriy j\ii very well. Kill mal is one sided non-intervention Carry tbe intervention out an the Constitution doe*, to tbe territorial legislature. and admit that they have no right, no power, no authority, to abolish, or establish, or 1-npair slavery within their limits. But that would it do. That is all at present that anybody need want 'hands off" hv Congress, ' bauds off"' by the territorial legislature. [Applause ] Sutler the Constitution and the laws to l>e executed by the Federal judiciary In the Territory without interference from Congress, and without Interference from the territorial legislature That is all ttiat is ne cisary at prtsent No one has nsked for more. But if non-intervention did not extend to the territorial legislature, what would be the consequence? It is just as the plaster of the Wiln ot proviso to the Huttalo platform; of Congress to til* territorial legislature Congress cannot enatt a Bufl'ilo platform under the Wifmot proviso, having uo constitutional power to do it; but It cm be done efiectually, more readily, in the Territories, by Congress. Now in what|( osition Las this placed the South ? If either interference bv Congress or the territorial legislature were constitutional, (which, of course, i do not admit to be the case.) then theplin adopted is far worse f ?r the South than the congressional plan; because if there were an attempt to interfere with these rights in Congress they would be res'sted by able men. The House of Representatives, the Senate, perchance the President, may resist; but all this atfalr in the Territories Is done by the first legislatures, consisting of twenty, forty or fifty men, and they can conveniently in half an hour destroy all the property that southern men may have in il . 'i' is t ... : / l.l < a <? i me i rrriiuura n ??ju 'urr Ruvcrrigoiy is io Of the law of the land [Applause J The first settlers who come to every ne?r Territory will not lie slaveholders They will rush from the North; thev will get possession of the first legislatures, ana then this sacred right of property, which all governments were established to protect, falls nt once to the ground under the will of a majority of the first men who may be elccted to a territorial legislature. ShaR we, friends and fellow-citirens, for the sake of squatter-sovereignty, break up this great democratic party? (''No, never'") Shall we, for the sake of squatter-sovereignty, divide the democratic party, North and South, into two divisions? Is it not the merest pretext in the world ? Shall we separate the democratic party North and South, ana thus dissever one of the stronct-st ties that binds this Union together' [ 'Never, never!"] I hope not. The great, pow erful, and pious Methodist Church has been divided in that way, and that division shook the | I'iiion at the time. Shall the democratic party follow in the wake of that division, tor ttie sake of establishing free-so'llsm during a short period between their settlement and their admission as States Into the Union? ["!"] I ask again, ' shall we divide the democratic party, North and ! South? That is the question?nothing more, nothing less Shall this great party which has governed the country in peace, and in war. which his raised it from i numb e beginning o be one of the most pro*j?erous In tue world, he broken up, for the sake uf enabling a few freesotlers in the Territory to confiscate the property of their neighbors? [-'Never, never!"] That Is the uuestion lam one of those who have ever been hopeful of the Union. I do n< t believe that the L'nlon ia tn danger It never will; j It njver can be in danger, In my opinion, unless the agitations of the republicans In the North should render the household of the southern planter insecure, and against that the northern democracy will be a wall of fire. So far as that li concerned, all democrats, whether suuater sovereignty, or popul r sovereignty?whether I Breckinridge men, or Douglas men Will unite. < Our brethren North and ;*outh, must be, shall be protected from the inroads of northern abolitionexcited insurrectionists [Applause.] It is said that the democratic party is dissolved or will br dissolved [Never.] The wish Is father to that tuouuht. U will exist.-lt must exist as long as tbe i Constitution and the Union shall endnre. It has ' ltowii uo In the name of the Constitution and it e Union, aud like one of the tall cedars of Lebanon, it will endure, it will extend itt branches; it wiil protect that tarred instrument from foreign foe*, and internal traitor*. [Applause ] Now, friend* and leUow-citizens, this Is probably the last speech I shall ever have occasion to make. ["I hope not."] It would not do for me, in my |>osition, to make political speeches throughout this canvass, though my heart Is in it You would not yourselves, I know, desire that 1 should. It Is now 40 years since I first came to Washington, and I wish to say this night that during that whole period 1 have received nothing but kindness and attention from your father* and from yourselves. [Applause ] When I came to Washington, It was a small town; now It Lss grown to be a great and beautiful city. The list 1 wish of my heart is that its citizens may enjoy uninterrupted health and prosperity. I tliank you fayLr kind attention you tuve shown me, ' you good nlgbt.
