A Hymn made in the Bagtile.
About a hundred and sixty years ago,
a lady was in onu of (he dungeons of tho
Bustile. It was no new thing ior her to
be in prison: for she had spent tnanv
years in captivity in various ports of
Franco. And what was her crime? Ro
ligion. She loved her Saviour and laid
herself at Hii feot, to live for Him. Her
name was Madame Guyon. While in her
lonely dungeon, she composed a good
many hymns: one very beautiful one is
iful one is1
A little bird I am." Shn was not allow '
ed paper or pen ; but she committed them
to memory, and often sunp. them to her
self; and when at lust she was released
from prison, she wrote them down on pa
per. "A little bird I am,
Phut from the fielda cf air;
And in my cnge I act and ling
To bim who placed methero,

York, Ta., July lGth, I8C0.
Mr Dear Sir : I have the honor to an.
knowledge the receipt of your letter of
the 9th instant; which, however, it was
, my privilege to see in the daily papers,
, before you furnished me with a printed
'Miiir a m i I ..
I om glad you have adopted this
I public method of ai
i as it enables me to
jn the same mann
answering my brief note,
lay betore tin people,
same manner, civ reasons for ae
ting with the majority of the Democratic
State Executive Committee at its list
meeting. Had you contented yourself with
a simple refusid to accede to the compro
mise proposed by the State Committee.
I would have remained silent; but the
ground you have publicly taken, demands
!rom mo a respectlul answer, in juptiflca
tion of myself to those who planed me in
the responsible position 1 now occupy to
wards the Democracy of Pennsylvania.
The public will look i:i vain throughout
your letter, for any tangible objection to
the proposed compromise, on the score of
expediency, policy, or principle. The
one .and only point in your coinmunicax
tion, is, that tho State Committee acted
"without authority." The miction of
jurisdiction is thus raised in vour own
mind, and is promptly decided by your
Eelf, without argument, in your own fu
vor. Now, wilh nil your political knoivledgo
and I am willing to concede to you the
lUOSt enlarged f.xin'1'ionen un.l tl.n l.i ftw. at
inteeritv ol nurtiogc hm nfrniri .r.n'hn!lround. They aro closelv united, in de
failed to learn what, really, are the "cer- i sinll8 a chance to strike a common Mow
tain specific duties" which belong to a iat. enomi' of Ihe Union and Ihe Con
State Committee. Certain ly, I have no ' ",ltution- To enable Ihem to do this, the
wish to extend the nowers of the one ovpr
which I l)9ve the honor tn ireKiili! nnr
do I tlcriro to shield any action of my own,
umier tne uroau and general term oi tho
resolution which authorized its appoint
ment, and for which. I boliovo, 'you cor
dially voted in the Reading Convention.
But I take it. that a State Commit ten is
fully "competent" to ait upon all ques
tions which involve the working m.tcliin-
ery of the party for whoso benefit It was
specially created; as well as to snnngc
and direct all tho details ot organization,
and to proposo and cll'ectively carry out
mi iitriwures which icnu to secure success
ful results-in' an imnendini Btrmr-'lo.
Hence it was that the National Executive
Committee appointed by the Democratic
Convention which mot at the Front Street
I heatre, in the city of Baltimore, without
any other authority than the implied
power contained in tho reolution which
created it, assumed tho right to make a
nomination for the Domocrucy of the Un
ion, a lien Boniumin Fitzpatrick declined
to accept the Vice Presidency on the tick

committee, in reference to the power of

ly shows that the ircnllemen whocomnnse
that organization have no very narrow or
contracted ideas ot tho authority and

You say, in your letter, that "tho Read
ng Convention gave no power to its Com
mittee lo compromise tho intouritv of
Democratic principles, the Democratic or
gan izt ion or Deruocratio candidates."
This is strictly true. But while ynur
premises are correct, your conclusions are
fallacious. No torturing of language, no
ingenuity of expression, can fasten such
an interpretation upon the compromise
recommended by the Stale Committee.
Coruo, let us reason together, and see how
far the Committee's resolutions bears you
out in the position you hare thus volun
i ou, as a cundidale for Elector, aro but
the creature of the Reading Convention.
Equally so, is tho State Committee. You
are both tho offspring of (he same parent.
iinoui any assumption ot power on the
part of either, it is vour conioined dutv to
endeavor to arrunge tho machinery of tho
State organization, so as to make it most election cf our gallant candidate fur Gov

United States and Governor of Pennsyl

your right to question the jurisdiction ol
the State Committee, in its earnest and
patriotio labors to unite the fragment of
a broken and dissevered party.
But while it cannot be successfully es
tablished that the Committee exceeded,
in the slightest degree, its legitimate pow
ers on the 2d instant, I freely admit that
its recommondation is entirely new, end
is calculated to awaken the deepest inter
est and reflection in the public mind. It
is necessarily novel, became the actual
position of the Democratic imrtv. at th
present time, ii totally different from its
condition in any previous portion of its
history. Two National organiwitions, like
the twin children of Rebecca "aro trug
cling for the righta of the elder born. " A
largo mnjority of the Democratic masses,
firmly wedded to their party, regard this
seism with unutterabio regret. Those
masses are very tar from agreeing wilh
you, in assuming that the only Democrat
ic candidate for the Preskloncy is the gen
tleman whom you prefer. Tens of thous
ands of them are, to fay tho least, quite
a much inclir.od to respect tho nomina
tion made by "a nneling of gentlemen at
the Maryland Institute, in Baltimore," os
they are to support that of "a meeting of
gentlemen," at the Front Street Theatre,
in the same city. I do not propose to
discuss the relative merits of these norni
nation! in this letter! but the fact is pa
tent to every one that there is, unfortu
nately, a great diversity of opinion as to
this point. This diversity of opinion can
not be ignored the division clearly exists
ami while the respective adherents of
lhe several "meetings of gentlemen" re
fered to, are divided in sentiment as lo
choice of Presidential candidates, there is
one point, I am happy to say, in reference
to wmcu iney uo occuvy a common
State Committee offered them a plan, by
winch, nil the sincere opponents of the
Republican parly, in the Democratic ranks
could unite upon one ElectoVul ticket.
Those who prefer the success of tho Op
position candidates, will, of course, arry
themselves against this fair and equitable
measure of compromise -whilo those who
honestly desire the triumph of the Dem
ocratic party, without rcleronce lo mere
men, will give their cordial adhesion to
the n0tion of tho Stale Committee. 1 in
dulge the hopo that more maftire re.flec
tion will induca you, like Martha of old,
to "choose tho better part."
If the proposition has not the color of
f,reccdent to recommend it to your favors
is well for you to know that those who
made it. learned a life long lesson from
you nnd your political conreret, when you
exultingly swept "the old landmarks" of
the Democratic party from the portals of
the Reabing Convention. In your elo
quent address before that body, when you
were inveighing in forcible languago
against "time honored usuages" in the se
lection of Delegates and electors, you
frankly said . 'We have nothing to do
with precedents; we have nothing to do
with rules wo are tolegislale upon a con
dition of things that has arisen since this
room was opened for our reception." To
this earnest appeal the Convention res.
ponded. Amen ! and the past, with its
crowd of witus?es in behalf ,. of "usage,"
waa ignored, and the representatives of
the people, swayed by the popular im
pulse, followed the Gamaliel of a new and
revolutionary faith. Sneaking for your-
self and your companions, you boldly pro
claimed to those who differed wilh you :
'If you want our votes, you must not
only preach union, preach harmony, and
preach conciliation, but )ou must show
tho fruits of all this preaching." I now
unwillingly, commend the same chalice
to your T.ps. I was for "union," "harmo
ny and conciliation," then 1 am for "u
nion," "harmony" and "cono'lialion"
now. It is enough for me too know that
the Democratic party is divided ani dis
tracted. iVore anxious for the defeat of
the Republican candidate than for the
advancement ef any man's perianal ambi
tion in the Democratic ranks, I saw in
the proposition adapted by the State Com
mittee the only feosablo means of accom
plishing the overthrow of the Opposition
forces in Pennsjl vania, and securing the
of Pennsylvania from being made the tin-
willins instrument in the election of Lin.

Douglas nomination ) mrddened at the
prospect that thisjust arrangement would
sweep from his grasp that victory ol Re
and issuing an irregular and disorganizion
call, and by resisting tlio will ot the ma-
jority, fairly and fully expressed. Fon
all such efforts deliver nie. Out of sixty
ono member of tho Cimnrtte present,
forty-six by their votns, sustained the
compioiuise which will secure the tri
umph of the regulaily chosen elostors of
the Domocr utic party, and had there beon
a district vote, about which there has
been so much complaint) tho majority
would have been proportionally larger,
for of the fifteen votes against it, six came
from your district alone, entitled as it is
but to a single Senator. Thus, then,,
the integrity of Ihe organization of tho
party is to bo saved by one fifth netting:
up their iuivs in opposition to their do
j clnrtd resolve of four fifths of the r?prc
aiinlativea oi tne party. Again, you say
tli.it "tho concluding resolution of the
Reading Convention was an nncquieocat
pledge to support its otcn and the nominees nf
the Charleston Convention," nnd that you ''are
lound b; thai pledge." Why, then, in an
attempt to apply that pie Ige to a nomin
tion when in truth the fact, has no exist
ence, ore you eo fur forgetful of it, nnd its
i . i t .1 rr
the Reading Convention, and to put in
their places for your support, other and
irrogulnr nominees? This fast and loose,,
game may be convenient, but redt assur
ed it will luck democratic approval.
Fiom the .tntcmciit of the Chairman
the fact is made known, (hat but-two of
tho twenty-seven electors chosen by the
Democratic State Convention at Reading,
have thus far rel'uso 1 to give the pledgo
called for by tho Commute; showing
thut they are nUo actuated by that sincere
patriotism, and anxious desire for Demo
cratic success, which prompted tho mem
bers of the Co.nmiito in their action ; and
still you so', up yoJr dissmit, nnd proposo
nn outsido organization, and an ouuide'
action. For nny such purpose 1 ceriainly
'cannot meet you. I am prepared ut all
times to meet the Stato Central CommiU
tee when called together by its regularly
constituted Chairman, and to lend my
humllo nid to carry out the objects of it
nppoinlmert. Jn the add rest umed
in concert with your communication by
Mr. It. J. lliililomiin, whofcigus himself
"of theN&tiunal Committee for Pennsyl
vania," and under whose leadership I
presume you are acting, he says, in speak
king of th Democratic Stnte Commute
"It was nnd is an Executive Committee
appointed to conduct the cump.igu in be
half of the Democratic party." In that much'
of liis address 1 certainly concur. It wi
appointed to conduct the campaign in
behalf of tho Democrat io party, and notiiv
behalf of some mere man. Porsonil am
bitions, personal successes, or pesonal con
quests, are no part of its cares, they are'
for thoso who deem the empty triumphs
of nn individual superior lo the continu
ance and triumph of an individual tupo-'
rior to the continuance and triumph of a
glorious old party. Tlio Democia'.ic Stnto
Committco, true lo tho Reading Conven
tion that called it into being, in adopting
the compromise measures, have acted "n
behalf of the Democratic party," and.
those that are not fur lhe party are against
it. "Principles, not men,'' nus ever been
the rallying cry of the Democracy and it
is thair cry to day. If you desire the sue-
Iices,f I,0!?crnl'O I ncipl.st H you
