After the transaction of some other busi
ness, the Convention adjourned.
The Committee on Resolutions made a
lengthy report which was adopted by the Con
vention, after striking out a resolution relating
to a road to-the Pacific. The report first re
affirms the Baltimore platform, and then pro
ceeds as follows ;
Anil whereas, since the foregoing declara
tion was uniformly adopted by our predeces
sors in National Conventions, an adverse po
litical and religions test has been secretly or
ganized by a party claiming to be exclusively
Americans, and it is proper that the Ameri
can democracy should clearly define its rela
tions thereto : therefore
JicsnlmJ, That the foundation of this Union
of States having been laid in its prosperity,
expansion and preeminent example in free go
vernment, built upon entire freedom in matters
of religions concern, and no respect of persons
in regard to rank or place of birth, no party
can justly be deemed national, constitutional,
or in accordance with American principles
which bases its exclusive organization upon re
ligious opinions and accidental birth-place.
That wc reiterate with renewed energy of
purpose the well considered declarations of
former Conventions upon tho sectional issue
of domestic slavery, and concerning the re
served rights of the States ; ami that we may
more distinctly meet the issue on which a sec
tional party, subsisting exclusively on slavery
agitation now relics to test the lidclity of the
people, Xorth and South, to the constitution
and the Union.
iuWracJ, 'Hint claiming fellowship with and
desiring the cooperation of all who regard the
preservation of the Union, under the Consti
tution. as tlie paramount issue, and repudiat
ing all sectional parties and platforms concern
ing domestic slavery, which seek to embroil
the States and incite to treason and aimed re
sistance to law in the Territories, and whose
avowed purposes if eonsumatcd, must end in
civil war and disunion, the American Democ
racy recognize and adopt the principles con
tained in the organic laws establishing the
Territories of Kansas and Nebraska, as em
bodying the only sound and safe solution of
the slavery question upon which the great na
tional idea of the people of this whole country
can repose in its determined conservatism of
the Union : non-interference bv Congress with
slaves in States and Territories : that this was
the basis of the Compromises of 1850 confirm
ed by both the Democratic and Whig parties
in National Conventions, ratified by tin- peo
ple in the election of 1852, ami rightly applied
to the organization of Territories in 1854 :
that by the uniform application of this Demo
cratic principle to the organization of Terri
tories and the admission of new States, with
or without domestic slavery, as they may elect,
the equal rights of all the States will lie pre
served intact the original compacts of the Con
stitution maintained inviolate, find the perpet
uation and expansion of the Union insured to
its utmost capacity of embracing, in peace and
harmony every future American ritate that
may be constituted or annexed with a, republi
can form of government.
RcsiJrrJ, That we recognize the right of
the people of all the Territories, including Kan
sas and Nebraska, acting through the fairly
expressed will of the majority of actual resi
dents-—and whenever the number of their in
habitants justifies it, to form a constitution
with or without domestic slavery, and h<- ad
mitted into the Union upon terms of perfect
equality with the other States.
Rw/rcrf, fin/ith/ That in view of the condi
tion of Hiepopnhiirinstitntions of the Old World
and the dangerous tendencies of seetior.nl agi-
combined with, the attempt to enforce
civil and religions disabilities against the rights
of acquiring arvl enjoying citizenship in our
own land, a high and sacred duty has devolv

of every State, and thereby the Union of the

TIN-: DEATH <>l- KKATI.VO. —The AnwrtMn
Ceft, an Irish pstjwr, devotes much space to
the killing of Keating by Mr. Herbert. De
ferring to the vote by which Mr. Herbert was
shielded from investigation, the Celt says :
Now, in relation to that division on Her
bert's case, wc 1 iAvc a duty to perform, and
we shall not shrink from discharging it. That
duty is to announce, in unmistakable terms,
to the adopted citizens of Irish birth through
out the country, that tho Democratic party in
Congre-s l ave shamefully de.ertcd their duty,
deserted their own professions of impartiality
between different classes of citizens, and that
they have, as plainly as deeds can speak, de
clared the murder of a man of Irish birth hy
one of their own colleagues to be a trifle whol
ly unworthy even of inquiry. Is the Demo
cratic party marl, or is it only rotten, that it
should so belie itself? With half a dozen ex
ceptions, every man of the majority for Roa
ring's murderer is a professed " Democrat."—
What, then, docs it mean ? Or can it moan
anything but one thing—that an Irishman
born, however peaeable, or loyal, is only lit to
bo used by the Democratic party, and when
used, sot up for a target, and shot with impu
nity. This is what it moans, at dto this mean
ing wc shall hold Ihe entire party.
We hold Mr. P ierec, Mr. Douglas, and Mr.
Hitchanan responsible for this conduct of th ir
confidents and supporters. They wore all in
We.slitngton : it was for days the topic of the
town ; if their friends have taken stdes against
the victim and against common justice, they
arc wholly above suspicion. A few days ago
the blood of Thomas Keating was on the hands
of but one Democrat ; it lias spread since then
and it is now upon the souls of the TD, who
refused all inquiry. It is on the Democratic
party, as a party, and accursed bo he that
helps such a party into power, until the blood
is lawfully purged away.

CIRCULATE TIIE DOCUMENTS.
The Presidential contest, which may be said
to have already commenced, will bo one of the
most exciting and important, ever known in the
jmliticul history of the country. Pennsylvania
i> to be the great battle-ground. Confident, of
snoress in everv slave state, the border-ruffian
apologists will use the most extraordinary ex
ertions to carry the Slate of Pennsylvania for
the candidate of the Slaverv-exteiisionists. it
will lie necessary for the Friends of Freedom
and of Free White Labor to be active to neu
tralize the unscrupulous efforts which will be
made by the tools of slavery.
Among the means which should be employ
ed is the wide dissemination of political Truths,
demonstrating the aggressions already made by
the Nullitiers, and the designs which slavery*
now entertains upon the Free Territory and
the Free Institutions of the country. Weshall
endeavor in this conflict, to do al! that lies in
our power to aid the cause of Freedom, identi
fied as it is with the prosperity of the country,
with the elevation of Labor, and as we firmly
believe with al! the glorious promise of the fu
ture to our institutions. Wo warn the fiiends
of Freedom in this Congressional J listrict that
we shall be beset with the most desperate ef
forts on the part of the slavery apologists'—
with the most unfair and monstrous perversions
of facts and arguments, and with a denial of
the true issues involved —and a most unparal
leled assumption of unwarranted positions for
the candidate of the party which has become
a more tool, as it is " the natural ally of sla
very." We shall have all manner of dodging,
evasion ami shuttling the true issues.
We propose to our friends and the friends of
the Republican cause, that the circulation of
the llcjioflcr be greatly increased, and to do
our part towards placing it in the hands of
voters, we have concluded to offer the follow
ing term? : Wo will send the Nrpi-rf-r for
fire aicuf/ex, commencing June 21st m.d ending
November 21st, at the fallowing rates :
5 copies (40 cents per copy), $2.00

These prices will barely pay for the paper
upon which the llrporUr is printed, and is
cheaper thaw any other county paper in iVnu
sylvania is afforded.
Names should be forwarded immediately,
that we may know how many extra copies to
print of the issue of .June 2Lt.
JCQ"" It is supposed that iii the event of Mr.
BUCHANAN'S election each of his supporters in
this county is to receive an appointment. Such
is said to he the arrangement. Gentlemen

&yt" To obtain the votes of Southern dele
gates the Pennsylvania delegation at Cincin
nati voted unanimously against overland com
munications with the Pacific, and/hr lillibus
tering resolutions, including the possession of
Cuba. And yet it is expected that .Northern
freemen will ratify their action by voting for
BUCHANAN— -thus imitating their servility to
the Slave Power.
The House Committee will close its
investigation of the Kansas Election Frauds,

Mn. CRAMPTOX AXD TUT: IMSMISSKH COXSCIA
—lt is said that Mr. Cramp ton proceeded to
Europe in the steamer which sailed from P.os
ton on Wednesday, accompanied by Consuls
Barclay, Rowcrnft and Mathews. The To
ronto Globe states that "any iilea that war
will grow out of his dismissal can only be en
tertained to be ridiculed." The Albv-n, the
British organ, published in New York, also
expresses the opinion that the dismissal of Mr.
Cratnpton will not. lend to any unfriendly feel
ing between the United States and England.
THE NOMINATION OF MR. BUCHANAN.
The telegraph has already convoyed to all
parts of the land, the 'intelligence that Jamks
UcciiAjUN lms received the nomination at Cin
cinnati as a candidate for the Presidency.
This event, ordinarily oT deep political im
portance, becomes donbly interesting now. —
.Mr. 15. has been a candidate for the same favor
at tiie hands of Conventions previously, but
without success, and now, when he has nearly
or finite attained his " three score years and
ton," by a strange turn in the political affairs
of t he country, he has become the candidate of
the party. Jfe has thus become public pro
perty, and his political life and conduct proper
ly subject, to criticism and animadversion.
We lake oeen-ion, thus early to sav, that in
his private character we believe Mr. Uiciianax
commands respect, and wo are willing to ac
cord him that reputation which is justly his
due. As a politician lie has fanlts which arc
prqtninent, and which render him partieularly
unfit now for the elevation which he seeks.
Mr. ]st ciiana.v hug been called a " safe man,
and appeals will be made to the conservative,
timid portion of the voters to support him on
that ground. Precisely for the reason that he
has gained such a character, is he unlit for the
Presidency now. That reputation has been
the result of weakness and timidity. He has
never been distinguished for bold advocacy of
measures—for early and zealous support of
principles—but it has been a distinguishing
characteristic that Mr. Ucchaxax permitted
abler and bolder men 1o originate and advo
cate measures, whilst he waited until their suc
cess was certain before he gave in his adhesion.
At the present crisis in our National af
fairs, we demand a bold, determined, resolute
man at the helm. One who is able to with
stand the tremendous pressure exerted by the
Slave Power, and who rising above the denun
ciations and demands of the uuliiliers, will tru
ly " know no East, no West, no North, no
South" in the administration of the govern-
ment. It will not be pretended that Mr. BU
CHANAN it; tiiicii a man, The timidity of his
character would not enable him for a moment
to stand up wln-n the slavery propagandists
should demand now concessions. Deriving his
support principally, if not entirely from the
Slave Stales, he would be as facile an instru
ment in their hands as ever FIIAN-KI.IN FIERCE
Mr. TIITJTANAN'S course in regard to the
Missouri Compromise proves that he is ready
to de-base himself to gain the support of the
slavery propagandists. In 1847 he addressed
a letter to the Fork* County democrats in
which he advocated the extension of the Mis
souri line, declaring that it saved the country
from threatened dissolution in 1820, and would
be attended with like happy results at that
time. It has received his sanction and support
during his public life. If any public man in
the nation, was bound in honor and consisten
ce to oppose its abrogation, that man was Mr.
Been VVAV. Being absent at the time of its
repeal, we have no reliable evidence a- to his
feelings when the measure was proposed. But
we do know, that as he became prominent as
a candidate, he took occasion for the purj ose
of propitiating the South, to give in hi- adhe
sion to tli" infamous violation of national faith,
and abjectly and basely succumbed, in viola
tion of his former repeated professions.
Th" South has already had assurance from
Mr. BUCHANAN in his official capacity, of hi
williugiit-ss to do her bidding. lie sent llo.va
i.rs M. SAC NUKES, of North Carolina, to Spain,
with instructions to offer one hundred millions
of dollars for Cuba, during the administration
of Mr. POLK, in order that the annexation of
that island, with its slaves, might accompany
or precede the organization of Oregon and
other northwestern territories, under the re
strictions of the ordinance of 17ST against
He advocated the Missouri Compromise,but,
while the territorial bills of 1849-hlt were un
der discussion,, and, at the instance of the
South, recommended that it should be run to
the Pacific, with the view of preventing the
application of the .Tellersonian ordinance to
any territory south of that line, all of which
it was thus proposed to secure to slavery.
Tie advised and co-operated with the prbs
ent administration in i!> plans for the purchase
or conquest of Cuba, with the view of extend
ing slave territory and swelling the slave repre
rcsentation in Congress, and in his Ostend Cir
cular went so far as to justify the I*uited States
in wresting Cuba from Spain by force, without
waiting for a pretext for declaring war, on the
ground that its possession was necessary to
the security of slave property in the United
He has avowed his willingness to accept the
territorial policy of this administration in re
ference to slavery, with all its enormities, and
will he what he always has been, one of the
most pliant and servile instsuments of the
South the moment he is elected. He only for
bears to say so by the advice of friends, who
fear that his only hope of an election is by the
votes of curtain northern states, which will not
support one whom they suspect of being an
altruist on that subject.
The nomination of .Mr. BnitAXAX should in
spirit every friend of Freedom to renewed ef
fort. It is a practical admission of the justice
and strength of our cause. Precisely as he
was supposed not to be identified with the poli
cy of the party and the Administration,,did lie
gain strength for the nomination. Whilst de
daring that they were ready to fight the hat
tie upon the one issue of freedom or Slavery
in Kausns > the negro-drivers and their North
ern allies at Cincinnati have quailed before tho
strength of Northern sentiment in the Free
States, nud have not dared to put in uotnina
tion a candidate identified with the repeal e.f J
tiie Missouri Compromise. The infamy of that j
nefarious traniaction is thus acknowledged, the
profligacy of the Administration is confessed,
ami the Cincinnati Convention have recorded
their testimony that the objects of the Repub
lican party are patriotic and just.
I hit while repudiating the actors in the re
pea! of the Missouri Compromise, and the la
ter outrages in Kansas, it most not be suppos
ed that it was from any sympathy for the cause
of Freedom. The Convention was more ultra
pro-slavery than any that have preceded it.—-
The platform, though ambiguously drawn, is a
declaration of the favorite southern doctrine,
repudiating squatter sovereignty, and carrying
Slavery by virtue of the Constitution wherever
we shall acquire or possess territory.
The friends of Mr. Ih ctfANAV expect to de
ceive the North into hi- - support. Tin- South
cares nothing for the position his northern ud
voi ates may assume. They know the influence'
they wield to control the action of any Presi
dent elected under such circumstances. Hav
ing first, made the candidates give every assur
ance of fidelity to the cau.se of Slavery exten
sion, they are content to permit his Northern
supporters to deceive the public as they please.
The sorrv fitrnre cut by FUAXKUX' PIF.RCE at
the Cincinnati Convention contains a moral
which we should hope would not be without its
effect on politicians who court the favor of the
South, were it not that such examples were
already plentiful, yet seem to be unheeded-.
Four years since the incumbent that now dis
graces the Presidential chair, was taken from
obscurity and elevated to the position of a
candidate for the Presidency. Supported by
an united Mctnocracy, lie was triumphantly
borne to the White House by the votes of the
people of the North and the South, the East
and the West. In his inaugural address he
i indulged in this promise and hope

And in his first message to Congress, lie con
gratulated the country upon the subsidence of
j sectional feeling, upon the universal pcare and
good will that prevailed throughout the coun
try, and again reiterated his pledge, that du
ring Lis administration nothing should be done
to disturb the repose of the nation.
How have these promises been fullfilled ?
We have had " national wrong and dishonor "
in the reieal of the Compromise ; we have had
sectional excitements renewed and sectional
animosites engendered : the slavery question
is again opened in its most odious, and danger
ous form- by a repeal of a time-honored na
tional compact—by an attempt to force slavery
upon the settlers in Kansas by the autlwirity
of the Administration and the arms of the Go
luctit ; i urnii.g towns and murdering inoffen
sive and peaceable citizens. The Territory of
Kansas, which on the inauguration of PIKRCK
was quiet and peaceable, is now t IK- theatre of
scenes of arson, robbery and persecutions, re
volting to (iviti/.atiou and disgraceful to our
country, w'.iiie >ynipathi/.ei'B North ami South
are ready to iiglit the torch of civil discord,
and take op anus in defence of friends. More
than this, frc do:n of speech is attacked at
' Washington within the threshhohl whence were
uttered the faithless promises of a corrupt and
i foresworn Chief Magistrate.
! For all this Fi: WKI.IX Pirn is responsible ;
| but he has been the supple ami willing tool of
I Slavery. We will give liiiu credit; fi-r suuteiv
j tv in protimlgating the promises and hopes we
| have ijuoted. lie has experienced that there
is no retreat for those who undertake to bow
the will of the slavery propagandists • that,
they allow of no partial service from those who
undertake to carry out their schemes. There
has been no extreme to which lie was apparent
ly not willing to go, at the dictation of the
South. The influence and patronage of the
Government has been prostituted, as in tlie
days of POIK and TYLER and FILLMORE, to the
one purpose of propagating and strengthening
the institution of Slaverv.
Vor these services, lie naturally expected tlie
support of the South in sccuriug ;i re-itotaiua
tion for tlie office he now disgraces. Put the
South is aware that such utter subserviency to
their purposes so wealcetis a man in the North,
that he is without strength at home. They
