to restore tho Union by the experiment of !
war. during which under the pretence of

itself has been disregarded in every part,

of the country essentially impaired; thai

:ilii rm,t f.iMinna held in Kentucky, i
Maryland, Missouri and Delaware was a
shameful violation of the Constitution and
a repetition of such acts in the approach

and will be resisted w ilh all the means
and power under our control.
ItetolveJ, That the aim and object of the
Democratic party is to preserve the Fed
eral Union and the rights of the States
unimpaired, aod they hereby decline that
they consider the administrative usurpa-
lion of extraordinary and dangerous pow-
- crs not granted by tho Constitution, the
subversion of civil by military law in the
States not in insurrection, the arbitrary
military arrest and imprisonment, trial
and senlenco cf American citizens in
States where civil law exists in full force,
: the suppression of freedom of speech nnd
- of the press, the denial of the right of as
ylum, the open and avowed disregard of
(State rights, the employment of unusual
test oaths and the interference with and
-denial of the right of the people to bear
firms, as calculated to prevent the restora
tion of the Union aad the perpetuation of
a Government deriving its just powers
from the consent of the governed.

ItcsolocJ, That the sympathy of the
Democratic party is earnestly and hearti
ly and earnestly extended to the soldiery
of our army, who are, and have boen, in
the field under the fla,; of our country,
and in the event of our attaining rower
they will receive all care, protection, re
gard, and kindness that the btavesoldiers
of the Republ-c have so nobly earned.
The Bcene which followed the introduc
tion of theso resolutions bat'.les duscrip-
tion. When the Secretary commenced
the reading ot tho report every car in the
house was inclined to catch tie words as
they came from his lips. The deep, al-
most breathless, attention of- tho vast au
dience was unbroken to the middle of the
eecond resolution, when
probaticn found vent
in cheers which
rendered tho latter nottion of the
resolution unintelligible the voice oil
of the Secretary being totally drowned in j
ine deep volume swelliug up around from j
uio lips ot luouBatuis. Uulor being res
tored, the resolution was again read, and
was listened to in silence until its c'.w-e,
when tho audienco aguin surrendered it-
self to tho wildest enthusiasm, which died
ftway and was renewed half a dozen times
before the third resolution could lia r
ceived. The reading of this resolution
canoa iortu appiauso more tumultuous
and deafening than lhat of tho preced-'
Ing. The other resolutions were also re -
