H, inatter of information to our readers, in
HL r that the people of the South may be
i informed of the true policy and princl
advocated by the Democratic party in
Northern States, of the Union, we give
■ollowing resolutions of the recent Con
ions of that party in the States of Penn
mla, Ohio and Minnesota :
ie Democratic State Convention which
at Harrisburg on the 24tb, was presided
by Richard Vaux The following
•able and resolutions, reported by the
. Jeremiah 8. Black, were unanimously
'hereas, It is the imperative duty and
Id be the exclusive desire of every Ameri
citizen intrusted with the power of con
ing public affiirs by his vote or other
, to see that they are administered with
g'e eye to tbe great objects which our
atuers had in view w-hen they laid the
dations ot this Republic, viz: To form a
: pe feot union ; estab.isb justice ; insure
estic tranquility ; provide for the corn
defense ; promote the general welfare,
secure the blessings of liberty to our
•s and our poster it}-,
',ereas, Tbe meu and the party adminis
ig tbe Federal Government since 1861,
: betrayed ’.heir trust, violated their sa
obligatious, disregarded the commands
ie fundamental law, corruptly squander
lie public money, denied justice to the
lie, perverted the whole Government from
rigiuai purpose, and thereby have brought
intold calamities upon the country; there
clved, That wc, the Democracy of Penn
unia, are now, and we always have been,
iful to the union of the States, opposing
secession of the South with our in
ice, and having no sympathy or associa
whatere 1- with that party in the North
:h plotted against the Udion and pro-
QCed the Constitution “a covenant with
,h and an agreement with hell.”
:cond» That if the counsels of the Demo
ic party had prevailed the Union would
» been saved iu all its integrity and honor,
lout tbe slaughter, debt and disgrace of
t-il war. But when the formation of sec
al parties in tbe North and in the South,
tbe adveht of one of these parties into
seals of power made war a fact which
could not counteract, we sustained the
itir bauds except a decent respect for our
zal rights and some show of common hon
ty in the management ot our financial af
ira, but in both these particulars, we were
Tnird. That the Constitution established
r our revolutionary fathers is entitled to
|r unqualified respect and obedience; the
Ith to support it is binding, religiously,
brally and legally, at all times, undei all
rcumstances, and In every pait of the coun
r ; upon all public officers, from the high
t to the lowest, as well as upon private
tizens; it is only by a strict observance of
i provisions and a rigid enforcement of its
ihgaiions iu all tbe States, that we can
>pe foi u lion, liberty or peace. He who
[fully violates it, or couus Is violation by
her-, is a public enemy and dishonest man.
Fourth. That among the rights guaran
;d to us by tbe plainest words of the Gon
tutiou are these: Free prtss, freedom from
bitrary arrest and illegal imprisonment,
al by jury, the writ of habeas corpus, the
rftet immunity of all persons not In tbe
ny or navy from any spacles of punish
•nt for crime or pretended crime which is
t the legal consequence of a legal coavic
n by an impartial jury, the absolute subor
ration of all military power to the civil
thority, and the privilege of white persons
vote at the State elections, accordiug to
e laws of the State.
i jFifth. Tuat we fully concur with Presi-
Ant Johnson in the conviction expressed by
in 1860, and repeated several times
£ce, that the Federal Government is sorer
£n within its proper sphere ; that it acta
apt through or upon the States, bui directly
Kon individuals; that the States could not
Bsolve the people from their tederal obliga
tions ; that the dtate ordinances of secession
lere nullities, and, therefore, when the at
■mpted revolution came to an end by the
wbmission of the insurgents, the Stales were
a much a part of the Union as they had
t ien before, Their people were bound to
t e same duties and clothed with the same
I flits, excepting, of course, such rights as
1 alviduals among them had legally forfeited
I r their own acts in the meantime, and we
I ire by declare that so far as we can prevent
J the resumption of their proper places in
t ie Union by those States, some of whose
Jltizens were lately in rebellion, shall not be
impeded or delayed by the unlawful inter-
Ifference of that faction at the North which
wm always hostile to the Union, which now
Wonounces it legally desolated, and which is
.■till malignantly laboring to prevent its res-
■ Sixth. That the effort, now making by cer-
Seia persons to use the power of the General
Government with a view to force negro
[•allrage oa the States against the will of the
people and contrary to existing laws, is not
opiy a high crime against the Constitution,
I bht a deliberate and wicked attempt to put
[ the States of this Union (all of them more or
less and some ot them entirely) under the
ijominauoa of negroes, to Africanize a large
■onion of the country, and degrade the
white race, morally and socially as well as
miuicaily, to the low level of the black- We
■ill not acknowledge the incapacity of our
Hwn race to govern Itaelfi nor surrender the
■esiimes of the country into the bands of ne-
Broes, nor put themselves under their guar-
Kanship, nor give up to them the political
Brivileges which we inherited from our fa
ster*, and we extort our brethren in other
States to take up the same attitude and main
tain it firmly. [Cheers ]
Seventh. That we will support President
(Johnson in every just effort he may make to
blace all the States in their proper positions,
to give to them a fair representation in Con
gress, to save them from the curse of negro
•quality; he shall have our hearty approval
Wben he inflicts legal punishment by means
Os legal tribunals upon offenders against the
United States, and we will be with him in
•very means which looks to the maintenance
•f the public credit. But our full approval
Os his administration eon be founded only in
the belief that he will execute the law, the
whole law, and nothing but the law, in all
•arts of the countrythat he will hot allow
the military to interfere with State election*
that he will punish kidnapping and robbery
through the legal authorities, whether com
mitted by Federal officers or private citizens,
and that he will suffer no person to be mur
dered by Military Commission, and upon
these measures there can bt no compromise;
be that ia not for us is against us.
Eighth. That in view of our enormous na
tional debt, the great weight of our State
taxes, and the local burdens imposed upon
us in divers ways, economy and retrench
ment becomes an important duty of all our
representatives, and to this end the vast
standing army now on foot ought to be dis
banded, the navy should be reduced, and tbe
corrupt and extravagant practiced, lately in
troduced into the Government should be to
Ninth. That our revenue laws need to he
carefully revised iu such manner that while
the public credit will be maintained and the
national hbnor preserved, taxation will be"
equal and just.
Tenth: That the gallant soldiers of tbe
Republic, who so nobly risked their rives in
defense of the Union and the Constitution,
merit and will receive the undying gratitude
of the American people. Living, they shall
live in our warmest affections, and dying,
their memories will be cherished for all time
to come. To say, as our political opponents
do, that they fought and bled and died man
fully for the freedom of the negro, is a gross
insult on their patriotism, and an outrage
which will be indignantly resented by tbeir
surviving comrades through the ballot-box.
Eleventh : That the noble manner in which
the Democratic press of this Commonwealth
have contended in the defense of the liber
ties of the nation, amid trials and difficulties
almost unparalleled, is deserving of our grate
fill recogultion, and should entitle it to the
encouragement of overy Constitution-loving
Twelfth: That wc re-affirm our adherence
to tbe Montroe doctrine.

The Committee on Resolutions then re
ported a series which, in substance, are as
Opposing a consolidation of all power in
the hands of the Federal Government;
maintaining the doctrines of State Rights as
laid down in the Virginia and Kentucky
resolutions of 1798; declaring that the or
dinance of secession adopted by the South
ern States being null and void, they are still
in the Union as States, entitled to all their
reserved rights and to their due representa
tion in Congress; denouncing all effijrts to
Confer the right of suffrage upon negroes;
discouraging the emigration of negroes into
tbe State; complimenting tbe soldiers for
their valor and fortitude during all the trying
scenes of the war; regarding the national
debt as a national curse; demanding the
most rigid economy in the administration of
affairs; recommending that a national tax be
collected by the County Treasurer for this
purpose as far as possible ; recommending
that tbe military commutation be repealed;
earnestly denouncing the arrest of citizens
by military authority in States where the
civil tribunals are open, and declaring that
the continued suspension of the writ of ha
beas corpus since the termination of the war;
the denial of tbe right of trial by jury, and
the interference with elections by tbe mili
tary power, as was recently done in the
States of Kentucky and Tennessee, are vio
lations of the Constitution of the United
The last resolution declares, that while
we resolutely condemn all infractions upon
the Constitution, and while we regret that
terms of pacification agreed to by Major
General Sherman in April last were not at
once ratified by the Federal Executive, we
will nevertheless stand by President John
son in ail constitutional eSorts to restore to
the States the exercise of their rights and
The resolutions were adopted.
Speeches were then made by General Mor
gan, Hon. Clement L. Vallandigham, and
Hon. James L. Pugh.
RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE STATE CONVEN
TION, ST. PAUL, ACO. 16.
1. Resolved, That men of all parties rejoice
together in the return of a peace which has
restored the integrity of the Federal Union
and vindicated its power; and that if is the
policy of wisdom as well as duty of the Ad
ministration to adopt such measures of coi
ciliatinn as Will originate the era of fraternal
feeling, and reunite tbe lately discordant
States in the bonds of a perfect Union.
2. Resolved, That while we deplore the
death of our honored Chief Magistrate, taken
off by the hand of as assassin at a moment
untimely and critical, we recognize with the
highest satisfaction the attitude of his suc
cessor in the leading measure of his admin
istration—which recognizes the sovereignty
and ignores tbe suicide of States; that we
pledge to his administration our cordial and
united support so long and so far as he ad
heres to the fundamental and historic dogmas
of the government, which in the past have
been cardinal doctrines of the democratic
3. Resolved, That the pronounced hostility
of the republican press and leaders to Presi
dent Johnson's policy of reorganization,
coupled as it Is With the avowed deter
mination to adopt the revolutionary alterna
tive of rejecting members ot Congress trom
the States lately in rebellion, unless elected
ttpon tbe basis of negro suffrage, is not mere
ly calculated to embarrass the advent of
peace and the return of friendly relations,
but is hostile to the leading idea upon which
the war has been fought—a falsification of
1 pledges—-subversive of republican govern
ment, and forebodes issues of antagonism
I between races, which threaten not only to
! reimperil the peace of the country, but to
i destroy the very people in whose behalf it
, professes to originate.
I 4. Resolved, Thai we accept with unfeigned
satisfaction the extinction of slavery as an
accomplished result of the war, and as an
acknowledged condition of peace.
r>. Resolved, That the continued suspen
sion of the writ of habeas corpus in States
and districts where civil courts exercise their
functions unobstructed, the arrest and trial
of offenders not in the naval or military ser
vice of the United States, by military tribu
nals, the suppression of iree discussion of
public measures, as in Tennessee, the sup
pression of newspapers, and the nullifica
tion of as in Virginia; and the
prevention of tree elections, as in Kentucky—
. merit and Will receive the indignant denun
ciation of every patriotic citizen of the Re
public. They are lawless invasions by arbi
trary power upon rights sacred to freemen,
an fl‘loftnldable to tyrants only."
The national debt is about three
thousand millions of dollars—a sum equal to
about one quarter of all the taxable property
of the Usltad State*—end la drawing a rate

signed ultimately to constitute the entire
banking capital of the country—and are ex
empted from taxation, thus exonerating the
major portion of the active capital of the
country from sharing the burdens imposed
by the war and imposing upon the lands and
the labor of the people burdens which must
result in practical repudiation—therefore
Reso/ved, That the only escape consistent
with justice lies in a policy which proposes
to absorb our standing bonds by new issues
bearing a less rate of interest subject to taxa
tion, and secured by a pledge os the entire
revenues ot the Government except so far as
they may be needed to defray Us current ex
penses. England and France established the
wisdom and necessity cf such a policy, and
furnished precedents in the light of which
creditors erf the Government have purchased
7. Resolved, That sound economy recom
mends that each State should be assigned its
several proportion of the public debt for col
lection, to tbe end that the people may be
relieved from the payment of an army of na
tional tax gatherers, the expense of which
enormous “peace establishment” it is esti
mated will about equal the entire present
indebtedness before the period expires for its
8. Resolved That Congress has not the
power to exempt from taxation by tbe States
for State objects the revenues of citizens, and
we therefore recommended that the next
Legislature provide for the taxation of in
comes derived from national bonds in such
manner as to equalize the burdens of the
9. Resolved, That the Democracy adhere to
their ancient principle of legislation, express
ed by the maxim “ the greatest good to the
greatest number.” We are, therefore, op
posed to a protective tariff, the operation of
which will build up monopolies in tbe East
at the expense of the farms and industry of
10. Resolved, That we are opposed to any
union of church and State, as contemplated
by the ruling elements of the Republican
party, and in favor of the largest liberty of
conscience, as declared in the Constitution
of the United States.
11. Resolved, That tbe encroachments of
European powers upon American nationali
ties should be guarued against and opposed
by such forces as may be needed, and that
we pledge our support to the application and
enforcement of the Monroe doctrine to the
present condition of the Mexican Republic.
12. Resolved, That we are opposed to con
ferring the elective franchise upon the ne
groes of this State ; that the immediate en
franchisement of this enervated and igno
rant race would introduce into our system
an eliment of disaffection, daDger and cor
ruption ; would be productive of injury so
the blacks themselves, would disturb our
system ot labor, our social organization, and
make the State of Minnessota, a place of
refuge for the scum of Southern slavery.
13. Resolved, That we are opposed to the
contemplated location of Indians upon our
frontier ; that the blood of those who have
been butchered, tbe losses of those who have
been marauded upon, the security of our
border, the good name and prosperity of our
State, demand enlightened councils and vig
14. Resolved, That, should Congress neg
lect to provide, it is the duty of the Legis
lature to adopt speedy and efficient meas
ures to repay, in a suitable and ample man
ner in the debt which Minnesota owed to
the glorious men whose wounas are badges
of heroic sacrifice for the integrity of the
Union and the honor of tbe State.
16. Resolved, That we consecrate the per
petual gratitude the soldiers of Minnesota
who have returned from the field of their
fame ; that to the “dead will live” the State
will erect a monument which shall fitly me
morialize the gratitude of our State and the
glory of her sons.
Brutal Murder near Opelika —A Young
Last Shot and Horribly Mutilatbd.— We
gather the following details of a heart-rend
ing tragedy which has just been enacted in
the neighborhood ot Opelika, Ala., irom the
Record of the 7th inst:
Our community was startled yesterday
evening by learning that the body of ajouug
lady had been found in Frazier's mill-pond,
some four miles from tiriP))lace, on the even
ing previous. We give the sad intelligence
as we received it:
It appears that a young man by the name
of Gillespie, while attending to some busi
ness near the above named pond, saw the
body of a human being rise to the surface of
the water. He immediately set to work at
getting the body ashore. This being done,
it was found to be a young lady, apparently
some fifteen or sixteen years old, who had
first been shot, then had her bead, arm and
leg cut off, and the body thrown into the
No clue has been given as to what this un
fortunate lady’s name was, or the where
abouts of the fiend who perpetrated the
bloody deed. The inference is that her per
son was first violated, and then murdered in
order to prevent tbe punishment of the vil
lain who committed the foul deed.
We do not think that the young lady be
longed in this immediate neighborhood.
We hope that our military and civil au
thorities will leave nothing undone that
wonld be instrumental in bringing about tbe
arrest of the murderer. We respectfully sug
gest that a large reward be offered by the
citizens of tbe adjoining counties, as well as
our own, for the arrest of the guilty party.
The Right of Suffrage.—' The right of
suffrage is limited to “white male citizens”
by the Constitutions of the following North
ern. Middle and Western States: Pennsyl
vania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, New
Jersey, Michigan, lowa, Wisconsin, Califor
nia, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, Delaware,
Maryland and West Virginia. In some of
the Western States, persons of Indian de
scent are permitted to vote, but negroes are
disfranchised by all of the above-named
States. In the State of New York, negroes,
where they possess certain property qualifi
cations, are permitted to vote, but they are
not placed upon terms of equality with the
white inhabitants ot that State.
In Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and
Rhode Islandi free negroes are permitted to
vote without any special restrictions upon
the right ot suffrage, and at the ballot-box
they are the equals pf the white men of those
In Connecticut, only those negroes vote
who were freemen prior to 1818.
From this statement it will be seen that
seventeen, and among them the largest,
wealthiest and most populous of the “loyal
States" deny to the negro the right of sui
frage; two permit certain classes of free ne
groes to vote, and five place no restrictions
upon the negro franchise.
The State of Oregon expressly provides
“that no negro, Chinaman nor mulatto shall
Fire and Loss of Life In New York*
A fire broke out about half-past 4 o’clock,
on Friday afternoon, in the pyrotechnic es
tablishment of Mr. J. T. Janes, on the first
floor of No. 1C John street. New York,
caused by tbe explosion of some of the fire
works. The upper floor is occupied as a fur
manufactory by Harris <& Russack, in which
were employed several girls, and on the
alarm being given they bnrried down stairs.
The flames rapidly extended to the second
floor, andßn endeavoring to escape, one of
the named Catherine Cieves,
and a man named John Filo, fell. The man,
however, succeed in gaining the street, terri
bly burned about the lace and body; bat the
yoang womsm metjt firightful death, being
burned to a crisp. The first and second floors
ot 'he building were destroyed and consider
able damage done to the stock in the upper
floors. The loss will amount to about $30.-
Fiatriclde la New Jrr,ry—A Juvenile
fFrom the Trenton American, Aug. 24.]
A truly heart-rending affair occurred at
the residence of John AL Nixon, on the farm
of Joseph J. Budd, near Lumberton, on
Tuesday morning about 10 o'clock. A diffi
culty arose between Edwin and Isaac Nixon,
sons of John M. Nixon—the former aged 18
and the latter 19—which resulted in Edwin
going into the house, getting his gun and
shooting his brother Isaac, killing him almost
An inquest was held by Justice Holeman.
The verdict ; of the jury was to the following
effect: That the said Isaac Nixon came to
bis death by tbe discharge of a double-bar
reled gun, in the hands of his brother, Ed
win Nixon, and pointed at the said Isaac,
which the said Edwin knew to be loaded—
the discharge of said gnn taking effect in the
right breast of Isaac, canting almost inatant
Young Edwin was committed to prison to
await the action of the Grand Jury. On his
way to Mount Holly he stated that be did
not intend to shoot nis brother, and that he
was in tbe act of turning around to go away
as the gun went off.
After he shot hia brother he went to the
bouse, taking the gun with him, and soon
after shot off tbe other barrel, remarking, as
he did so, that that was the last time he
should ever shoot that gun.
Tbe $1,500,0000n Board tbe Golden Rnle-
A Revenue Cutter to be Seat to tbe Wreck.
The revenue cutter Cuyahoga, Capt. John
Faunce commanding, left New York on Sat
urday last, for the Carribeau Sea for tbe pur
pose of endeavoring to recover the balance
of the $1,600,000 which went down in the
Golden Rule when she was wrecked on her
passage to San Juan. Mr. Victor Smith,
agent of the Treasury Department, after
being five weeks on the reef, assisted by
divers and two wrecking schooners, has re
covered onty about $140,000, which were in
a safe. The Cuyahoga will take out experi
enced divers, and it is possible that other
portions of the large sum may be recovered,
although it is highly probable that it will be
in a condition wholly useless for circulation.
The Treasury Department desire to be cer
tain that it has been destroyed, or forever
lost, so that they can strikojt off their books,
and if needed issue other notes in their place.
The Cuyahoga will probably be absent sev
