dircct instructions by a cunningly devised
resolution ot the (Joiiimittcc on Organiza

strength in the Southern delegations sub
stantially appeared.
iNow, with the aouth opposed ot Judge
Douglas even to a disruption of the party,
with every Democratic free State voting

State where there was no hope of a Dctn

upon tho Democratic States a candidate
distasteful to them as shown by their voics,
in so much so that they ware ready to sun

lou are devoted to him becauc ot his

tho Democratic party more than all men ;
to your political judgment, men are nothing
unless they carry out your principles ; you
love your party because you love your
country. Thcis any man, however gifted,
however wise, however able, must give
way iu our hearts when ho hinders the
suoces? of those principles on which we
believe the future well being of our coun
try depends. It is not that we " love
Ciesar less, but we love Rome more." I

and exocutive capacity of Judge Doug
las I have no word of reproach to utter
against him I propose to join ip no cry
to follow no crusade, if such there bo,
agaiust him. Not even thu hasty and ill
tempered denunciations and abu-e of his
near sighted and ill-judging friends Eltall
tempt me to do him an injustice, here or
elsewhere. We must accept facts as we
tind theiu a truth is a truth however un
palatable. No man can act wisely who
disregards facts and truths iu shaping his
course, whothcr in political or other ac
tion. 1 would most always wait upou I
ought, for the reasons before ktnted, I
iouiid Judge Douglas' nomination nn im
possibility without a disruption of the par
ty and throwing away all chance of suc
cess. You may say this is a great misfor
tune. Rc it so. It is a fact upon which
ou and I fellow Democrats, must judge
and act. I found a very large majority of
tae Democratic btates unalterably opposed
to Iniu. " lis true, tis pity, pity tis 'tis
true." I found him iu a bitter l'cud with a
Democratic administration, and without
earing to inquiro which is to blame for it,
such conflict is not a help to Democratic
votes iu a closely contested election, espe
cially wheu the Democracy desire to carry
tho State of Pennsylvania, when to say the
least that administration has both prestige
and power. I found also that Judge
Douglas was in oppoitiou to almost the
entire United States. No matter who is
and stupidly continue voting for Douglas.
If you lovo him more than Domoerntic
principles, then I did misrepresent you.
If you arc Douglas men and not Demo
crats, then I have offended. If you prefer
thu man to his party, his defeat and your
political ruin, rather than success under
soma conservative national I)emocrat,thon
have I offended. Rut if you cherish your
principles first, your party next, and men
last if you love your country, and are,
as patriots, ready to lay your personal
preferences on the altar as peace offerings
to the genius of American Democracy a
sacrifice for the prosperity aud glory of
tho Union then you have boen most
truly aud firmly, consistently and fully
represented by your delcato in the
Charleston Convention. Ycu will ask me
what is to be done at Baltimore ! To that
I answer We are to assemble there.
The seceding States will conio back and
act with U9 by their present delegates or
a now ic-t. The Democracy will gre
together aud upon the Cincinnati platform.
We shall nominate some ono ot tho doz
ens of eminent meu in thu Democratic par
ty who are fit to bo President who will
take no part or lot in the personal diffi
culties that now agitate us who will re
cognise tho claims of every body's friends,
if they are true Democrats, and with him
the Democracy will again triumph. In

majority of nil tho votes on the first ballot.
The Democracy then harmonized, and
New York patriotically gave her vote to
the Democracy. Can it bo that Illinois is
lcs patriotic now than New York was
then ! I will not so believe. I eee no
dark and impenetrable clouds in the fu
ture. I sec the success of tho Democracy,
because I believe iu the future destiny of
our country. Let not our Republican bV.s
take courage from our dissensions. Our
