1. Re.kydred, Prat the so called dem-
Nati(' party, by its system:hie sub
-:-.if.ner to the slave power
country, as maoife , ted by a se
ormeasure, [the la, , t of which,

ropeal of the Missi,ori compro

that it intend.; to sub,nit to

l' , roigh the introduction into that ho
,;)- of senators, • (the represenatives of
!lave holding canstituences, insignifi
cant in point.of numbers;) thus setting
at defiance the will of the people, and
constituting the only cause to aatiei
pate...a dissolution of the Union, `
2. Resolved, That the present State
and General Administrations have
boldly assumed the resposibility of the
above policy, and the Free Democra.
cy hold them responsible for this de- ,
parture from - the policy and principles
of the fathers of the republic.
3. Resolved, That the only questions
now prominently before the people of
this State are those of liberty against
slavery, and temperance against in
temperance, and upon, these issues
will be detemined the approaching
guherhatotial election; .and that the
candidate of the so-called Democratic
party, stands before the people, as the
justifier, if not the advocate ofthe ex
tension of slavery to a territory now
ft et.; and upon the subject of a pro
hibitory liquor law (the only adequate
remedy foe the manifest evils ofintem
erance,) his position is unsatisfactory
to the friends of temperance.
-I. Rego/red, That in view of the
transcendent importance of the ques
tions now befire the people, the one
involving their honor and integrity,
toitchini_t solemn compacts, affecting
human libetty; the other, the happi
ness, temporal and eternal, of millions
yet unborn, it becomes the ft lends of
liberty and morality to disregard all
patty ties and prejudices, and unite
in ono body in opposition to • an ad
ministration whose measures are so
fraught with evil to the human race.
5. ReAol red, That without express
ing, upon this occasion,any opinion as
to the old issues which have hereto
fore divided the Wilig and Democrat
ic patties, or as to anv ci.llatcral or
secondary questions which. may exist
between them, we cannot fhil• to rec
ognize the issues as being fairly made
upon the two great questio,ts above
named, and that the Hon. dani&s Pol
lock stands before the . people of the
State as the rereseuative of the.senti
imints of Likrty and Temperance,
and should therefore receive the sup
pint of the Free deniocracy offthe
6. If rsoliT(l, That we accept the pro
po,ition to withdraw, tendered by our
worthy candidates for several State
offices, in order that an undivided
front may he presented ill oppor•ition
to the State and I . ptional Administra
tions at the ensui?g election.
7. Resulted. That notwithstanding
the withdrawal of our State ticket, we
(ieeni it our• duty to maintain our dis
tinclive organization as a Free Dem
ocratic Tarty.. We neveftheless ex
press a wil!ingness . to unite with our
fellow citizens of other parties, at any
time, in forming a new party of the
people, to maintain the rights of free
dom, and esist thi' encroachments of
slave; y, whenever an eflifft to that
end shall he made.
