BALTIMORE NATIONAL llBaiOCRATlC
Baltimore. Slav 18. Tho Democratic
National Convention assembled at tho Front
Street Theatre, at 10 o'clock this morning,
in pursnancd of tho resolution of adjourn
ment adopted at Charleston.
I At 11 o'clock Iho President called tho
, Convention lo ordor.
I Tho proceedings wcro opened with prayer
by tho Rev. John McCron, an Episcopal
A'AI.UOIVI Ul XllllklillUlU.
On calling the Convention to order,
Mr. Cusblng, tho President, stated that
tho hour of meeting agreed upon at this ad
journment had passed, but as it was bo
Ucvcd that a misunderstanding had occur
red as to tho hour of mcctinc soino sup

States to bo called, in order to ascertain if
all wcro present.
'Ihe roll' was tlicn called.
All tho dclciratcs entitled to seats worn
fouud to be present except a portion of tho
delegation from Pennsylvania, Connecticut
Tho roll call being completed and tho
absent delegates having appeared and ta-
ken their seats, tho Convention was for
mally, called to order and an opening
Mr. Gushing then addressed the Con
vention as follows :
bpeeoii of president cusiiinci.
Gcntltmtn of the Convention : Permit
mc in tho first place to congratulate you
upon your being reassembled hero for the
disehargo of your important duties in tho
interest of tho Democratic party of the
United States : and I bee leave, in the
second placo, to communicate to the Con
ventiou tho state of tho various branches
of its business, as they now conic up for
consideration before you. Prior to tho
adjournment of the Convention, two priii
cipal subjects of action wejo beforo it.
One was tho adoption of tho doctrinal
resolutions constituting the platform of tho
Convention, and tho other voting upon the
question of tho nomination of a candidate
tor tho Presidency. In tho course of n
discussion of tho question of a platform
the Convention adopted a vote the effect of
which was to amend the report of the ma
jority of the Committee on the platform
by substuting tho report of the minority of
that Committee ; and after tho adoption
of that motion, and the substitution ot the
minority for tho majority report, a division
was called for upon tho several resolutions
constituting that plattorm, being live in
number. The first, third, fourth and fifth,
of those resolutions wcro adopted by the
Convention, and tho second was rejected.
After a vote ou the adoption of tho first
and third and fourth and fifth of those
resolutions, a motion was made in each
case to reconsider tho vote and to lay that
motion,for the reconsideration, upon the
table ; but neither of these motions to re
consider or to lay on tho table was put,
the putting of those motions having been
prevented by the intervention of a question
of privilege, and tho ultimate voto compe
tent in such case, to wit : of the adoption
of tho report of tho majority as amended,
by the report of the minority, and tho ul
timate question had not been acted upon
by the Convention, so that at the time
when tho Convention adjourned there re
mained pending before it these motions, to
wit: to reconsider, to adopt the resolutions
constituting the platform aud tho ulterior
question of adopting tho majority, as a
mended by tho substitution ot the minority
report. Those quastions and those only,
as tho Chair understood the motions before
the Convention, were not acted upon prior
to the adjournment. After the disposition
of the intervening question of privilege, a
motion was made by 31 r. JUcCook,ot Ohio,
to proceed to tho vote for candidates for
President and Vico President. Upon that
motion tho Convention instructed tho Chair
not as had been erroneously supposed in
tho recess of tho Convention, the Chair de
termining tor tho Convention, hut tho Con
veution instructing tho Chair to make no
declaration of a nomination except upon a
voto equivalent to two thirds in the Elec
toral Collcgo of tho United States, and
upon that balloting no such voto being
given, that order was, upon motion of the
gentleman trom Virginia,!, .Mr. Itussel,) laid
on tho table for tho purpose of enabling
him to propose a motion, which he subse
quently did, that tho Convention adjourn
irom tho city of Charleston to tho city of
Jialtimorc, and with a provision concern
ing the filling of vacancies embraced in the
same resolution, which resolution tho Sec
retary will please to read.
Tho Secretary read tho resolution, as
Ilewlvstl, That when this Convention
adjourns to-day, it adjourns to reassemble
at Baltimore, Maryland, on Monday, the
eighteenth day of Juno, and that it bo re
spectfully recommended to tho Democratic
party of the several States to take provis
ion for supplying all vacancies in their re
spective delegations to this Convention,
when it shall reassemble.
Tho Convention will thus perceive that
tho order adopted by it provided, among
other things, that it is rcspectlully recoiu
mended to tho Democratic party of tho
several States, to make provision for sup
plying all vacancies in their respective dele
gations for this Convention, when it shall
re-assemble. What is the construction is
a question not for the Chair to determine
or to suggest to tho Convention, but for
the convention itscli to determine. How
over that may be, in tho preparatory ar
rangement for tho present assembling of
this convention there wcro addressed to
tho Chair the credentials of members elec
ted, or purporting to bo affirmed, and con
firmed, by tho original Conventions, and
accredited, to this Convention. In threo
of those cases, or perhaps four, tho ere
dentials were authentic aud complete, pre
tenting no question of controverting dele
gates. In four others, to wit the States
of Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana aud Dela-
ware, thcro were contesting applications.
Upon those applications tho Chair was call

cgations as though they wcro traitors
llut he would say, tho South does not re
gard them as such.
The South believes that if the majority
of tho North adopt principles which the
Southern States cannot with honor endorse
it is competent and honorable for tnoe
States to withdraw and say to tho Conven
tion : Select your candidates, and we
will see what wo can do. Ho was not in
favor of seocs-ion, and had earnestly pro
tected against it and exhoited tho Southern
States nut to secede. His con-titucnts
would not justify him in such action, and
as a life-long Democrat he believed that
thu safety ot the lives and property of tho
South depended upon tho preservation of
tho National Deinoeiatie party. He con
cluded by exhorting the Convention to
strike out the Statu of Arkansas and ad
mit at least all tho States whose seats are
uncontested at once.
Mr. Loring, of Massachusetts, rose for
tho fir.-t tluiu in the Convention, having
been prevented by a soverj domestic afflic
tion from attending at Charleston. He
was surprised to hear any allu-ion made
hostile to the so-called seceding delegations
and to find au opposition made to tho ad
mi-sioll of certain States, standing upon
what thoy bolieved to bj their constitution-
al rights, and retired from the Couvt ntioii.
He repudiated the idea of thtfir being
therefore deprived of the right to return,
Iho Convcniion should gladly wdcomo
them back. He heard with surprise, for
the first timo in a Democratic Convention
the talk of sections of tho country and the
party. He thought such talk and such
1 sentiments wore confined to another organ

Mr. Merrick, of Illinois, said that tho !
