the next election.' Thus one: of his neigh-,
bons CHARLES Gres.oic, said at the St. Louis
. ratification meeting
- "Mr. Blair ' in. his letter, tells us that if
he be elected President of the I , n ted States,
or becomes President,—(A voice : 'Vice
President,']—well,' if he is elected Vice
President he may 'become President—he
tells you that lite becomes President of the
United States, that he expects these uncon

gotten of the sword, to vanish from the
halls.of the nation, and he tells you that if,
in the exercise of his Constitutional powers,
it becomes necessary, he will use the neces
tary measures to remove them out of those
halls., (A voice—'He is right,' and
The Savannah (Ga.) papers say that the
meeting in that city to ratify the nomina-
tion of Seymonr and Blair was very largely
attended. We quote the following report
of, speeches made at the meeting from the
Savannah Repubitean:
"Amid loud calls and cheering, the chair
num introduced Gen. A. R. Lawton, who
"That Mr the first time since the SOnth
ern people laid down their arms he, had the
heart to address his fellow citizens. -Now,
for the first time, we had a platfonn of prin.
elides and leaders around , whom we could
rally. It was the noblest, best, boldest dec
laration of 'principles ever laid dotin In the
.llnited Elates, and the 'demonstration here' ,_
to-night showed that it was in unison with
the feelings of the people.- There wasnoth
ing that- the . South wanted that was not
there. We have leaders to represent those
principles who will, carry us out of the
slough of Despond. Peace has its victories
as well as war ; those great principles for
which we fought and which we feared were
lost, may yet be achieved. finccesa intuit be
our watchword, and we must stand up
bravely 'for_thosn.who are working for us.-
Will you do it ? [Cries of 'Yes, yes. ]"
Hon. Henry R Jackson was called for
and addressed the Meeting. • _
He said it was an occasion not for discus
sion, but for-the earnest grasp of the frater
nal hand. It vies an occasion when every
American, every Georgian, Bavannahian—
every man should be prepared to announce
his allegiance. He came to give his heart
and voice for what they were worth to the
American Democracy. Against those prin
ciples he had never rebelled.,Th9y were
our principles' in 1850, in 160, m- 1861,
1862,:1,863, 1864 and 1865. In vindication
of them the blood of our people flowed
freely - throughout the land. - 'We have
never, never, never abandoned them. And
now we are told_by those who have_raturn
edtti us froni the Noith..that there ti con'-'

The "Southern Banner," of Georgia,
speaking of Johnson's amnesty, says: "Let
us be thankful for small favors. - Let us re
joice that the ban of oppression has been
uplifted. Let us shout hosannas to the best
Govemmentthe world ever saw!' —but let
us never forget the principles for which we
struggled through four long and bloody_
years; and let us never forget the gallant
'men in gray' who so nobly but yet so vain
ly struggled to vindicate and uphold these
principles."• ,
The Columbus (Gs.) "Brin," says:
- "It neither understates nor overstates the
determination of the Democracy of the
West aid North,. when,it says that to aman
they are united in ihe,resolve that the pow

Judge Aldrich, who had • the honor of a
, .
Democratic reception in Charleston - a few
days ago, said
.."This is' a grand contest in.which we are
engaged, a contest for constitutional liberty,
and it 'was the contest in. which,we have
been engaged since 1861."
The - Charleston "Mercury" • expresses
itself as follows:
"ot one honed man ' south of Mason's
and Dixon's line,. is as hamed of the musket
he bore or the sword he drew in defense of
the Confederate flag. The man who says
he is ashamed of it, lies. Let every honest
'man at the North be sure of the fact, that
the man who says so, wants to swindle
money out of somebody. He is a knave
either in the first or in,the last step."
The Mobile "Register," whose editor •
John Forsythe—was a delegate to the Tam
many Convention, speaks his mind after
the following fashion
"The time for this style of caution has
passed; and the "rebel" cry, like the entire
cause of the Radicals, is played out., With
the'meeting and close of the great National
Convention in Tammany Hall, July 4, we
lave entered upon a new phase of political
Virginia to Vote Regardless of Law.
The Petersburg (Va.) Indcz asserts:
"Under Our laws Virginia has a rightto
_vote iiithe next Presidential election. Trai
tors would deny us the nght and accompa
ny that denial with threats. Virginians are
not to be frightened. Virginia has an un
questionable right to vote, and Virginia will
vote. -We owe it to ourselves—to truth-,
to the National Democracy. The law is
clear. Virginia must vote. To the count
.ing of our votes the National Democracy
stands pledged. Let us do our duty—and
vote. Let us leave to the people of the
North their duty—counting our vote."

The Complete Alliance of the Democracy
and 'Rebels.
Gen. Preston, late of the rebel army,
and who was the first to nominate Erank
Blair in the New ;York Convention, made
a speech itt Lexington, on August Ist, and
here Is what he said: •
"The platform itself is clear,
broad and
unambiguous. There is no dead wood
about it. The want of limb 'precludeetny .
,going into a full discussion of it, which I
would be willing to do, but we have put
two men on that platform, one of whom
Kentucky may be especially accountable
for. When the nomination of Frank Blair
byKenthcky was' madeunanimous, it gave
point and completdness to the whole thing.
Two years ago I said I never would,
go into any;party except- it was based on
amnesty and equality. I claimed no supe
riority after the war had ceased. I claimed
no superiority over the Federal soldier;'
none over the gentlemen who had been
connected with the side of the Union- none
over the third party—a representative of
whom I see before me; but I thought I was
as good,as any of the men I fought.
When assembled at• New York, I tell you
my heart was warmed when the first reso
lution was offered, and when Hampton and
these swords that had been the brightest in
fighting for. the South were greeted with
warm hearts by the greatest soldiers of the
North, it madems feel indeed as one people,
on 'a basis of equality. [Loud applause.]
It has been my fortune to s ee Napoleon
When his conquering hosts returned from
the great Italian campagn; I have seen the
Queen of Spain, after the war irt which her
armies had been victorious; I. have seen
great' ovations given - in m any places, to
princes and others, butt never saw so fine
an ovation as upon the nomination of Gen.
Frank Blair, when they clulitered around .
Hampton and the soldiers of the South, and,
with outstretched hands, welcomed us, to
stand Shoulder to shoulder with them in
the great campaign.. [Renewed applause.]
A Glimpse at Their Little Game.
The Charleston Mercury, which probably
did more than any other Southern journal
to bring about the ,late war, and which is
now a staunch suppl i rter of Snymoun and
Bum,' thus shows that another war will be
commenced if its favorites are elected. On
the other inind, the Northern Copperheade,
following the renegade &Ant, are strenu
ousT for another war, in case their dldate
shall be defeated. 'And both wing 'of the
party are agreed to 'dispute the v idity of
any election which shall be decide by the
votes' of the new Southern Stet s. Our
readers are familiar with the BL AIR pro
gramme, but it will- interest them to exam
ine the annexed semi-official exposition of
rebel opinions and intentions as put forth in
the Mercury. Here it is : . .
Supp3So now that the Democratic party
carries the next 'Presidential election, and
installs its President in the White House.
Mast they not, forthwith, proceed to undo
the wrong, and restore the Constitution? Is
this impossible? Why is it so? The Got
emment of the United States used the army
of the United States to elevate the negro to
supremacy over the white man, in viola
tion of the Constitution .. hi
What there to
prevent it being used to pnt the Southern
States back to their original condition, of
the supremacy of the, white man over. 'the
negro, in vindication of the Constitution?
But it is said that the negro State Govern
ments can, prohibit the white population'
from taking any steps to vindicate their Su
premacy or the supremacy of the Conetitu
tinn. They can call on the President of the
United States for assistance to enforce
their unconstitutional rule, and the Presi
dent Is bound to obey under that clause of
'the Constitution which says: 'The United
States shall, on application of the Lesisla
tare, or of the Eiecutive, (when the Lees latuni cannot be convened,) protect each
State against domestic violence.
"Domestic violence I" But the white
population do not mean to institute "domes
tic violence." They intend to assail no one,
pretending or not pretenGing to authority
in the Southern States. They mean peace
ably to meet in Convention, probably
recommended by the legislators of their
former legitimate State .Gavernments, and
in such a Convention form a Constitution
for the Government of these States."
But it may be said that the negro Govern
ments in the Southern States will, notper- .
mit the white population to assemble. They
will assail them with violence;.'Suppose
this is done, does ft afford any ground for
their 'support by the military authority of
the United States? Clearly not. 4, Denio
cratic President Would, most probably an
swer, to any application to him by the ne
gro Government for assistance: "In my
opinion, your Government in the first place
is unconstitutional and revolutionary, and
therefore I decline to recognize your spellcationl and in the second place, you violate
the Constitution of the United States In en
deavoring by'fOrce to prevent peaceable as.
semblies ythe. Such an answer,
in our judgment ,: would secures peaceful
progress of , events. We do not think the
negro Governments in the South will at
tempt, by ,their own power, to force their
rule over the white population. Supposing
that this will be the course of things, the
white population will proceed to form a
Constitution and elect fitate °facers and
representatives to Congress. This can be
done by the fourth of March next, Upon
each branch , Congress then will de
„Yolve the"responsibility of determining
„which ere' the legitimate Governments of
`the Southern States, the negro Government
or the white man's Government ! de

Hampton Tils More About Platform.
For grey er exactness we q ote from an
other report •of Hampton'. speech at
Charleston :
"I recognize on all occasio • s the right of
he people to demand from t eir represent
. tives an aboonnt of their ste ardship, and
am, the fore, here in orde .to render an
.unt o mine as a delega - to the Na, "onal De ocratic Convention
"Well, gentlemen, I will only give an
cconnt of what transpired in New York,
• d how the platform upon which we can
ow all stand, was made. You reebllect
. 4 the committee on the platform was
. mposed of one member from each State.
When NVe first met there were naturally
:reat differences of opinion. Among the
esolutions offered was one declaring that
he right of suffrage was purely smatter for
tate legislation. There were men there,
00, who told us that it was good Demo
retie doctrine. I agreed it was good Dem
. eratic doctrine but asserted that it was
. menu,' to define who fbrmed the States ;
o establish guards and, limits by which we
• uld go back to some certain period'in
•ar history, and say who were the citi
ens. I therefore asked them to declare
.at the question of the right of suf
rage belonged to the S
. ents that EXISTED UP TO tate govern-
1865. Some
oubts, ho'wever, were expressed of the pol
cy of such a declaration. Gentlemen from
e North, South, East and West, all show
-d the greatest disposition to act in berme
.y. lam free to confess that they met us
verywhere with cordiality and good will.
fact they declared their willingness to
ve us everything ire could desire, but
hey begged us to remember -that they had
great fight to make at the North, and they
.erefore besought us . 'not to load the plat
orm with a weight that they could not
y against the prejudice which they had
o encounter. Help them once to gain the
• wer, andthey would do their utmost to
have the Southern States and restore to
s the Union and. Constitution as it had ez
sted previous to the war. I then withdrew
y resolution, and agreed to the one offered
•y Bayard, of Delaware, that "suffrage was a
.. • tter for State legislation," provided they
ould allow me - tadd thre words. They
• greed to this, and I then added the clause
which you will find embodied in the plat-'
orm: "and we declare that the reconstruc
ion acts are unconstitutional. revolutionary
•• d void." That is my plank in the plat
onxt. The great Democratic party being .
.ledged to that , declaration, I want- nothing
Ise. I could wait in patience for their tri
mph to show us how it was to be worked
.ut in their own good time. That the right
f suffrage belongs to the . States is a policy
hat suits us, when the great, Democratic
. arty is pledged to the declaration that the
• construction acts are unconstitutional,.
revolutionary and void; especially when
very member of the party, and the warm
-t are from the North, is ready to take it up
• d carry it out."

Cons `nttoa Met.
On the 15th of kusc, the New York
"World," after recapitulating the legal dif
ficulties which the enemies of reconstruc
tidn would encounter, said:
"Since negro suffrage can be upset during
the next Presidential term neither by Con
gress nor the Supreme Court, by what
agency is it to be overturned ? Not surely
by the negroes or by the Governments in
which they are voters. If done at all, it
will be by the white citizens of the South
acting outside the new, State Governments.
But what shall prevent the new Govern
inents trying them for treason against' the
State, as Rhode Island tried and sentenced
Dom! Or who can dOlibt that they would
do It ? It Is too evident that the negrOes
can be ousted from the suffrage only by a
suecessful insurrection of the white citizens
against the new State Governments; and
the "World" has too deep a sense of res
ponsibility, and too clear a foresight or con
sequences, to advise the Convention to
recommend this method of redress,
Yet, in spite of the "World's" advice, the
Convention has recommended precisely that

"Do not Northern Radicals, who are the

fallen our country within the last six years,
know that the two million Democratic
voters in the North will never permit an
other Radical to occupy the Presidential
chair who may succeed• in getting a majority
of the electoral votes, either by excluding
the Southern States from voting or by for
cibly depriving a majority of 'the white citi

"We tell them that the days of their ty

THOMAS Ewrivo , Jn., of Kansas, at a
Democratic ratification meeting declared :
"On the third of November next. the
American people will endeavor to restore
these States to their constitutional rights.
Should this by a possibility fail, the white
population of those States may-succeed in
placing themselves in possession of their
governments'; otherwise, as sure as the

The New Yorh, Traria says
For as many-crimes agrinat law, the Con

commits, the British people would smash
Parliament and hang peers and commoners

The new rebellion will array the people
of the United States against two hundred

The "Old Guard" is the only avowed
Democratic magazine in the North._ What
it says, therefore, on the political titillation,
has special weight. Here is what it declares
will be the result if its party regains power:
"The return of the Democratic party to
power will restore the Constitution and the
Union. With this' restoration of the Von
stitution and the Union, will return also the'
rights; the equality and the sovereignty of
the, States. Then the status of The negro in
each State will be fixed and controlled by
the State itself. All that has been done in
violation of the Constitution, , or by the
suppression of the sovereign rights of the
States, is null and void; all that the States
have been made-to do by threats and intim
idations is also utterly void in law. The
restoration of the Constitution suid the
Union will make all things right again.
It then proceeds to argue that nature's
God has placed the negro in a condition Of
slavery. But to put the climax on it all, it
"The cause upheld by Jefferson Davis is
the cause of God, liberty and American eiv
iliration,', while that upheld- by Abraham
Lincoln, which blindly and impiously strives
to reverse natural order and amalgamate
races, is the most impious, accursed and
monstrous that ever insulted heaven or out-
raged earth %ince time begun."
"Under the mllitary rule of dot:Kress end
its negroes, thosoi communities of the South
are no more States than the raid of abandit
ti is government - All that Congress has
done, or is doing, is null'and void in law,
and will be swept clean away the next hour
after the Union is truly restored: Then i if
the States so pease. they may lawfully tr eat

Is it possible that any loyal man, espe
cially any Union soldier, will vote with a
party that indorses such atrocious senti
ments as these ?

Mr. Seymour does not announce that con
clusion, but he arrives at it necessarily by
joining himself to the platform, which holds
each and every step of the whole proCess of
Congressional reconstruction as not only
null and void because forbidden by the
Constitution. but revolutionary- 7 -in other
words, an overturn of the Constitution
itself, by whose warrant alone Congress. can
do any act. • Thetis not any question for the
courts. By the platform, it is res adjudieata,
and Mr, Seymour, as the Democratic candi
date for the Presidency, binds himself to it
;as 'a contracting party. Of course, then, if
we succeed, Mr. Seymour will be obliged to
draw the executive sword at once, and stop
the degradation of the States of the • South
from the dement he has the power placed
in his hands. He stands in fact where Mr.
Blair - stands, to his letter preyious
to Ibis fnomination. * * * As the pre
siding officer of the Convention, Mr... Se
ymour says he was familiar with the resoln
dens, and, as a member of it, he conaidera
himself a party to their terms. He is
bound to them; stands on tfiem; will not
swerve a hair, and takes his, part of the
responsibility of what may come. Arid the
platform has no reserves about reconatruc
tion. There is no chance therefor interpre
tation -the acts of Congress are pronounced
revolutionary, and everything done iris pur
suance of them is as if it never had; been
done, and 'those who stand in! the Way of
prompt restoration must be removed, and all
the doings in the premises which it will -- -be
profitable to undo will have to be undone.
We are glad that we stand together there;
all the Democrats of all the Statesl. We are
glad that is Southern State, and that State
South Carolina, led the way. Wade Ifarhp
ton, a Confederate General, had the honor,
to make the suggestion. It was eagerly
adopted by the Convention, and now we
have the cautious, Christian, patriotid, and
lifelong Demoerat, Horatio Seymour. pat
ting his name to the indictment and pledg
ing his reputation, if he be elected, do put'
aside everything the tyrannical Congress of
the majority of the States only, have:done
to the minority. From first to lastfrom
the so-called anti-slavery amendment of the
Constitution to the flood of trash for all
purposes, military, civil, financial and com
mercial•—all the reconstruction laws of the'
whole peace period fall to pieces, if the De
mocfacy succeeds in electing Mr. Seymour
as their standard-bearer. , :We can take part ,
in such a conflict.'
Mr. Seymour does not embarraas himself,
nor anybody else, by-dealing with the thumi
eta! question. We very well know] his
opinions, and - if events-were not omitipo
tent, and -far more powerful than Presi

Democrats, led. by Wade Hampton, "the
butcher" Forrest, "Admiral" Semmes,
Beauregard and Wise, have risen in. insur

rush on Washington, to seize the Capitol,
