That does not sound al all like abiding by
the settlement ,that has been made of the
questions of Slavery mid Secession. Bq
sure, the expressions employed are some
what vague and indefinite; but every per
eon who is famMar w:th the =rent Of po
litical discnesions in this country for the
last eight years, knows precisely what is
meant. The 'Republicans are 'arraigned as
malefactors for abolishing Slavery, and re

with that great fact; and for daring, in va
rious other matters of prime importance, to
coerce th .::3 seceding States. Takeout these

The controlling idea here is to get the
Southern States back into the Union in the
precise condition they occupied before the
rebellion. The nominal point of objection
is the Reconstruction plan of Congress.
But press the inquiry firmly, Why is that
plan objected to? and the underlying feel
ing will speedily be brought to the surface;
which is, that the Southern States violated
no obligations by making war upon the
Government, and are, therefore, liable to no
penaßies, but remain with all their original
rights and powers intact, though held under
Military duress. This does not coMport, in
thOeast degree, with the declaration of the
Platform that Slavery and Secession have
been determined against the Southern lead
ers, and so determined as not to admit of
The fact is, that Democrats like the en
slavement of the black nice, and would be
glad to restore it 'if they could see their
way clear to do so. They believe fully .is
the doctrine that the Union is nothing more
than a partnership, from which each of the
States has a right to withdrew unmolested

The DemoeraUe NeminaUoi.
There is much speculation regarding the
attitude of the President and his Cabinet on
the New York Dentocratic nominations,
and numerous reports are in circulation
(none of them well founded, however,)
that a serious disaffection exists among Mr.
Johnson's advisers toward the democratic
candidates. There is no doubt, however of
the position of Mr. Seward and. Gen. Scho
field. They both support Gen. Grant. Sec.
retary Seward will probably take no promi
'nent part in the.campaign, but his sympa
thtes and countenance will be given to the
Republican candidate. The tame may be
said only in a more positive degree of Hr.
Evarts, the probable Attorney Gent raL As
to Mr. MCCulloch's position, nothing furth
er Is positively known than that he utterly
repudiates the financial part of the Demo
cratic platform, and that he dislikes Sey
mour. Postmaster General Randall is re
ported to have declared for Grant and Col-
fax, but authorizes a denial of the report,
and adds that lie has not made up his mind
to support either ticket. He states further,
very significantly, that he cannot conscien
tiously support a repudiation platform, or
any candidate with repudiation principles.
Regarding the much-talked-of third party
movement, he says that it would fail, inas
much as it would result in -throwing the
election of President into the House, whoe
there is no third party, and where Gr an t
and Colfax arethe unanimou s choice. Other
members of the Cabinet are understood !to
entertain mmihir views.—Wash. Cor. .ter.
TEE Washington correspondent of the
Cincinnati Gazette telegraphed on the 10th:
"The New York nominations continue to
be the general theme of conversation, and
DemocratiC Congressmen are just as free as
they were yesterday in expressing their dis
gust at the selections made. They see that
Seymour's copperhead 'record and Blair's
bloody letter ,cannot be sustained, and the
feeling about the latter is so strong that
Senaors Davis . and Buckaiew both publicly
disavowed it in the debate, in the Senate to
day, and declared that the Democratic party
cannot be charged with its indorsement,
even if it has nominated its whter for Vice
President. One Democratic member of the
House from Pennsylvania speaks of Blair
as a d-41 fool for writing it, and a greater
d—d fool fbr printing it. Mr. Barnes,
Democrat, from .Brooklyn, 'telegraphed to a
leading delegate In the Convention, yester
day, after the news of the nomination of
Seymour was received, that the Republicans
were jubilant and the. Democrats depressed;
that the matter 'ought to be reconsidered
and Seymour made , to decline. The leading
Democrat in the Indiana delegation, when
asked what he thought of the nominations,
held up his hands in a deprecating manner
and answered, "Hush, my friend, you are
treading on a newly made grave."' One of
the Ohio Democrats,. when askei :a similar
question, replied that the ticket could not
;carry a single State west of the Alleghenies,
Arr. Seivard remarked to a gentleman this
morning that 'ljoy Seymour always had a
good facility for:running behind his ticket.'
The only 'thing with which the Democrats
seemed pleased, is.the slaughter of the Chief
Justice. They chuckle over that great
deal, and make all Sorts of pleasant remarks
'about his innocent.° and sympathY.P4ttb-,

sirous of being on the winning side." •
The Jonesborough (Tenn.) Flag says
that Mr, Ezra Mather, Mr, Isaac N. Babb,
and :Mr. John S. Maher, and many, other
citizens of that place, who have heretofore
been acting with the Conservatives (so
called) from honest and conscientious mo
tives, have come out boldly and emphatic
ally for Get. Grant. So it is all over the
country. The Forrest ticket is a pill that
can never be svntllowed by men who love
their country as they; should love it.
Tux New. York Journal of Common.,,
a Democratic sheet, thus pitches Into both,
theplatforni and Gov. Seymour:
"This is out-and-out repudiatien of 'a sol
emn obligation, as we understand it, to pay
all of the bonded debt in gold. On the
question of 'repudiation the Democrats are
boldly committed to the baser alternative,
and will reach , the =ill ailvantage where
this heresy , is , foully cherished. There is no
. excuse for such a proposition. It is both
wicked and disgraceful. The authors know
very well- that the money was borrowed
with the express understanding that it was
to be repaid in coin, andthat anything short
of this is repudiation of a solemn covenant.
Gov. Seymour has always warmly insisted
on the obligation 'to pay the bonds in gold.
The platform is the very opposite of his
well-known views. How the two are to be
mcanciled it I not for mto decide."
