M30MJTIO.N OP TUB DEMOCRATIC STATE EXE CUTIVE COMMITTEE. Profoundly impressed with the linportanco of prompt, vigorous and patriotic action on the part of thf Pallid tralic State Comiitiitco, in order to tivvrt, if possible, trie oosenienccs which must inevitably result from llio uii. happr divlsron now elisting in the rank of the Uemoc. racy In our State and nation, we cordially and honestly rvcummenu iu me Democracy 01 tne Biato mat tnvy unite with heart and voice in the support of our excellent and competent nominee fur Governor, Henry D. Foster, and that in all the local elections they act as one party, for CirlOfi; and forgetting any differences thnt they may havo entertained for the Presidency; but with a view to a per. feet unity against the common enemy, we recommend to the Dcmocrucy of Pennsylvania to unite their votes for President on the electoral ticket formed at Heading on the 1st day of March, lst.0,011 the following basis and un derstanding, viz: That if said electoral ticket should be elected by the people, and it should uppear, on ascertain lug the result or the other States of the Union, that by casting tho entire vote of Pennsylvania for Stephen A. Douglas and llerschel V. Johuson, it would elect tliein Presideut and Vice President aver .Messrs. Lincoln and Hamlin, then said electors shall be under obligation so to cast said vote; if on the other hand it should appear that said vote would not elect Messrs. Douglas and John, un, but would elect John O. lireckinrldge and Joseph Lane President aid Vice President over Messrs. Lincoln and Hamlin, then said vote shall be cast for them ; and In case the united votu of lYnnsylvama would not elect cither of these tickets, then tho electors may divide it Between them according to their own judgment of what would be the best for the country and the Democratic firty the basis of this united action being that it is tlie rst and highest duty of all Democrats, however they may differ about men and minor points of principle or policy, to unite against a common enemy, and to avert, if possible, the greatest calamity tbat could befall the country, the election of a l!l.ick Republican President ; and further, the Chairman of, this Committee is hereby authorized to correspond with the several electors in the Ctate, and obtain from each of said electors his written pledge, within thirty days from this date, that he will faithfully carry out the object of this resolution. Ouv National Flag. Wo hav raised tho names of the tvro Tickets, pronounced to havo teen nomina ted by the Baltimore Democratic Conven tion, for President and Vice President, in order that those who feci bo inclined, may vote for Messrs. Douqlas and Johnson, whilst wo -shall moat cordially givo our hearty support to tho election of Messrs. Breckinridge and Lane. Thouamoof Major Breckinridge, tha gallant soldier and noble young Kentucky Statesman, is a tower of strength with the Democracy of Columbia, and also in tho old Koystoue State, and coupled, as it is, with the namo of the Patriot Soldier, Gen. Lane, of Oregon, will carry Pennsylvania, in next November, with an enthusiasm unequalled and scarcoly excelled by the great contost of 1832, when she rallied to tho tune of fifty thousand majority for the "Hero of New Orleans." These are, briefly, our reasons for prcforriug tho election of Breekinridgo and Lane. Noble Brothers. Col. Wright's paper, The Luxerne Union, and Col. Forney's papor, The (Philadelphia) Frets, arc both out in long and abusive editorials against tho union proposed and agreed upon by tha Demo cratic State Committee ; and which has been hailed with delight and satisfaction- by every true democrat in Pennsylvania. Can it bo possible that theso men are tho friends of thu democratic party, or oven of Judge Douglas ! Far from it ! They are determined to play into the hands of the republicans, and elect Lincoln. They know that Douglas cannot bo elected with out the thorough uniou of the party in this State, and yet they refuse to uecedo to a fair proposition for that result. The poo plo will not bo blind to the action, nor careless of tho manifest intention of tho Douglas leaders they will not follow For ney and Wright and Haldcman and Hick man, when they attempt thus to betray them into the hands of tho republicans. No, they will remaiu in tho regular or ganization in Pennsylvania, members of tho party that nominated Foster, of tho party that choso tho electoral ticket, of the party that proposes to carry out tho will of tho democracy, as expressed by tho State Committee, of tho party that prefers Doug las to Lincoln ; although their first choice is John C. Breekinridgo of Kentucky, ter " The Daily Times," published in (ho City of Reading, by Col. II. A, Lanti, u a living institution. P. A. Lantz, Esq., has recently bocome an Associate Editor. Its daily visits are heartily welcomed at t'hj office of the Columbia Drmocrat." Our Candidates. 'Wo have to-day placod at tho mast head of our paper, the names of John C. BnicKlNBlDoi, for President, and Jo seph Lane, for Vioo President. In doing this, wo express our own preference, and what we believe to be tho preference of the Democracy of this county, as well as of the Stato of Pennsylvania. Wo havo no time or spaeo this week to givo any of tho reasons which havo induced our action. Wo shall take occasion to do this hereaf ter. At the same timo that wo thus do fine our position in relation to tho two Democratio Presidential tickets wo must fully and unreservedly concur iu tlto re commendations of the Stato Central Com mittee, contained in tlto resolution adopted at tho meeting of that body on last Mon day, which will bo found in another col umn. Wo believe that iv union of the De mocracy of tho State upon one electoral ticket, is tho only course by which we can possibly defeat Republicanism in this State, and wo know of no plan more fair and honorable aud less liablo to objection than the ono proposed by tho Stato Com mittco, and wo sincerely hope that it may bo adopted and acted upon. Wo 6co, however, that Col. Forney, has issued his mandate to the Douglas wing, forbidding any such alliance. This is just what we bad rsason to oxpect. We never believed that Forney intended to voto for any Democratic nominee, His professions of regard for Douglas, and his promises to support his nomination were made at a time when ho believed it impos sible for Douglas to rcceivo tho nomina tion under any circumstances, Now that ho has received a nomination, Forney is caught, unless he can keep tho two sec tions of the Democracy divided. lie "owes labor and scrvieo'' to his present employers, tho Republicans, and this re quires him to aid in tho election of Lin coln. They caro not how this is dona, nor does he' If ho can do it as effectually by keep ing the Democratio party divided upon two candidates, aud thus givo the Republicans aii easy victory, this course willafisfy both. It is tho cud t bo at tained tho defeat of the Democratic par ty that interests them ; thu means by which that object is to bo effected, are of little consequence. It remains now to be seen whether any portion of tho Democra cy of tin s State will permit themselves to be made use of by Forney as tools to ac complish his selfish and vindictive purpo ses, at the expense of a defeat of the Dem ocratic party, and tho triumph of sec tionalism, or whether all will u.iite to de feat oue common enemy, and make tho election of a Democratio President a cer tainty. Dauvil c Inteliient-cr. Forney's Press which assumes the leadership of tho Douglas Democrats, ad vises them to make common causo with the Black Republicans, in order to defeat tho Ureckiuridge movement, the object of which it assures them, is tho disruption of tho Union. Tho advice, monstious as it is. does not surprise us in tho leant, coming from tho hireling Clerk of tho Republi can House, but what surprises us is that, after so many palpable evidences of the treasonable designs of this political Swiss, tiiore should still be found people to utter ly blinded, and so easily imposscd upon, as to be influenced in their political opin ions by tho Press. Wo wonder what tho friends of Mr. Douglas, and that statesman himself, will havo to say to this beautiful combination iticketof Lincoln and Douglas lPent- sytvanxan. A number cf individuals have been arrested in Philadelphia, and bound over to answer for fraudulent voting at tho elec tiou in May. They all voted tho "Peo ple's Party" ticket, and by their means Hufty was declared elected Comptroller over Downing, tho Democratic nominee. It is supposed that sufficient frauds will be shown to oust Hufty. Tho Opposition presses devote so much space to tho Covode Investigations, which havo pioved nothing that they have no room for these frauds elcited under oatk and in a Court of Just ice. State Military Encampment. Ad. jutant General Wilson has issued an or der for a State Military Egcampment for instruction, drill and discipline, to be call cd "Camp Patterson' aiid to be held at York, commencing on Monday, tho 3d of Depteir.Dcr next, and ending on Saturday, the 8th.

I Tho Pennsylvania Democracy The State Central Committee Opposed to Douglas Proposed Compromise ontht Presidential Question. Philadelphia, July 2, 1800. The Democratio Stato Exccutivo Com mitteo met this afternoon at the Mer chants Hotel. Tho proceedings wcro conducted with closed doors. A motion to admit substitutes was negatived ; also a motion for reassembling of tho Stato Con vention to tako action. Robert E. Managhan, of tho Sixtli dis trict, a prominent administration man and an opponent of Mr. Hickman in tho last Congressional campaign, mado a warm speech, saying that whilo ha preferred Mr. Breckinridge ho was obliged to regard Mr. Douglas as tho regular demooratio candidate. Ho then offered resolutions of compromise, .About twenty-four out otho sixty mem bers of tho committee presjnt wore Doug lasites, fifteen of whom bitterly opposed any conciliation, aud were warmly sus tained by outside pressure. Thcro wcio hot discussions between tho leaders ofbotli factious duriug tho entire meeting, and various propositions were voted down. At length Thomas C. McDowell, of Dauphin county, offered resolutions which Were adopted by a voto of -10 against 15, as follows : First, Calling on tho democracy to unite iu support of General Foster for Governor, to bury all differences on the Presidential question in tho local elections. Second, Recommending the democratic party of the State to unite on the electoral ticket formed at Reading on the following basis : If it should appear, on ascertain ing tho result in other States of the Union, that by casting the entire vote of Penn sylvania for Douglas it would elect him, said electors shall bo under obligations to cast said voto in that way ; if the said voto would not elect Douglas, but elect Breekinridgo, then shall it bo cast for Breckinridge. If the said voto will elect neither Douglas or Breekinridgo, then tho electors may divide according to their own judgement the basis of this united action being that it is the first aud highest duty of all good democrats, however differing about men and minor points of principles, to unito firmly against the common euemy. The Chairman of tho committee was authorized to communicate with the elec tors, and obtain their pledge within thirty days to aet under this obligation. The committco then adjournod to- moct at tho All of tho Chairman. Prior to tho adoption of the compromise resolutions many propositions woro made, among others ono declaring Douglas tho nominee of tho democratic party for Pres ident, which was voted down by ayes 10, nays 43. Action of the State Committoo. Victory is now within the grasp of tho Democracy of Pennsylvania. Tho Stato Executive Committee, at their meeting on the Ud inst., as will bo seen by the official proceedings, passed a resolution, by the strong voto of three to one, obligating the Electors chosen by the Reading Conven tion, in the event of their election, to vote as a unit for Jlusirs. Douglas and Juhn- Hon, if tho electoral voto of Pennsylvania will elect them. If it will not elect theso gentlemen, but will avail to elect Messrs BnECKlNUiDan and Lane, it is to bo cast for the latter. In case it will elect uoi thcr, by being cast as a unit, then tho Electors aro left free to vote as their own judgments may dictate. lhe proposition is so manifestly fair and proper, and must commend itself so strong ly to the approbation of every Democrat in thc State who is sincerely desirous for tho defeat of the Black Republicans, that wo cannot refrain from congratulatiu" our friends upon this auspicious opening of the 1'rcsidcutial campaign. Wo told our readers last week that all is not lost that is in danger. Out of the ncttla danger tho Democracy of tho old Keystone Sta te can pluck tho (lower safety, if thoy will only unito as ono man iu support of the fair and honorable proposition bucKestcd by the hxecutive Committee. Tho Di mocracy of tho Stato are now, or, at least. should be, a unit against tho Republicans, and those who trample under foot so cx Cillcnt a plan for harmonizing differences of poiuion in our ranks, and resort to dis organization, only demonstrate their hos tility to the Democratio party, and their desire to aid in the election of Lincoln. Let our friends all stand shoulder to shoulder m this conflict, in defence of tho Constitution and tho Union ; by so doiii" wc shall deleat the plans of the Republi cans, and secure tho vote of tho Stato for a Democratio President, whether the choice fall upon Douglas or Bueckinuidge. Wo also render certain tho triumphant election oi our excellent candidato for Governor, Gen. Henkv D. Foster, (who, wo Happen to kuow, is gratiGod with tho action of tho Committee,) a majority of ijongresiinon and JiOgislators, as well as tho local officers m the Democratic coun tics of tho Commonwealth. Any other course would bo tho defeat of them all. from Governor down, and givo tho State hopelessly over to tho commou enemy of our party and its principles Lancaster Intcliigencer, Visit of tho Prince of Wales.

We have fallen upon stranco times in deed if the Democracy of Pennsylvania arc not competent to settle their own do mestic concerns, without tho a-ahtauco of a committee outside of the State. This a'tempt nt interference comes with marked 'inconsistency from those who vaunt their devotion to the principle of popular sov ereignty, and tho right of every commu nity to determine its own affairs as it thinks best. Tho province of a national Committoo is not to regulate Stato organ izations. If it were so, we might as well hold np Stato Conventions, appoint no State Committees, and resign tho entire control of tho party to a junta of individ uals at Washington, with Mr. Miles Tay lor, of Louisiana, at their head, and Johu W. Fornoy under Republican pay counselling and directiug for tho Domoc raoy of Pennsylvania. This would bo popular sovereignty with a vengeance, and the shortest way of consummating thecon tract that Forney has made with the Re publicans, to deliver the Democratic party bound hand and foot, to its worst enemies. What Democrat is prepared to submit to such dictation? We must display tho banner of State sovereignty, aud repudi- .... .Uc u.gna ut traitors a.m itcpuuucan mercenaries to control tho domestic policy of tho Democracy of Pennsylvania. The compromiso adopted by the Stato Committee is accepted with rejoicings by all tho staunch Democratic papers in tho Stato.

Sm: I am directed by a voto of tho Democratio National Convention to inform you that you havo been this day unani mously nominated by it as the candidato of the Democratic party for the office of President of tho United States, and in their behalf to request you to accept the nomination. I beg leave, at the same time, to rnolosa to you a copy of tho resolutions adopted by tho Convention as the political platform on which the party stands. I have thc honor to be, Very respectfully, C. CUSHING, Preside. Hon. J, C. BttKCKiNuiDOi:. Washington City, June 20, 1800. Dr.AK Sill : I have your letter of the U3d inst., by which I am officially inform cd of my nomination for the office of Pros ident of tho United States by the Demo cratic National Convention, lately assem- bled at Baltimore. I Tho circunift.i net's of thij noniiiutiou I will justify me referring to its prrsonal as I poet. 1 have not sought nor dt-siiid to be placed before the country for thi clKeo of President. Wh-n my name as present Cil to the Convention at CharWnli, it was i withdrawn by a friend in obedience to my expressed wishe. My views had not cliang I cd when the Convention reassembled at Bal jtimore; and when I heard of the differ 'ence which occmred there, my imli.poi tiou to be conneitcd prominently with thc canvass was continued, and cxpres-cd to many menus. ithout discussing the occurieiices which preceded the nominations, and which are or soon will bo well understood by the country, I have orily to say tlut 1 approve asju't, and necessary to tha preservation of the national organization, aud the sa cred right of representation, the action of the Convention over which you continued to preside; and thus approving it, and having resolved to ustaiu it, I teel that it I docs not becomu mo to sel.ct the position I , shall occupy, nor to .shrink fiom the re-Ispon.-ibilities of tho po-tto which I have , been assigned. Accordingly,! accept tho nomination from a souse of public duty; 'mid, as 1 think, uulluunivd in any degree , by tha allurements ut ambition. I avail my.-elf of this ocea-ion to say that the confidence iu my personal and public character implied by the action oi the Convention, ti ill always be gratefully re 1 liieiubercd ; and it is but'just, also to my own leelin , to rxprvs my gratification at the a nociatiou ot'iuy nanus with that of my friend General Lane, a p.niot and :i soldier, who-e great eriee.s in the field and in council entitle him to the gratitude ' and confidence of hit countrymen, j The rcsnltitions adopted by the Conven tion havo my cordial approval. They are j just to all parts of the Union to all our I citizens, native and naturalized and they I form a nobli policy for any Adniinistra I tion. i The question touching the rights of per , sou aud property, which have of late been much discus-ed, find iu these resolutions a i constitutional solution. Our Union is a confederacy of equal sovereign Statis, for the purposes enumerated iu the Federal Constitution. Whatever the commou Gov ernment holds in trust lor all tho States, inut bo enjoyed equally by each. It controls tho Territories iu trust for all the States. Nothing less than sovereignty can destroy or impair the rights of persons or property. The Territorial Governments arc subordinate and temporary and not sovereign; hence they cannot destroy or impair me rignts ot persons or property. Wliilo they continue t) bo Tcrri ories they .are under the control ot Congress, but the Constitution nowhere confers on any branch of the Felcral Government the power to dis- criminate agaiu.t tho rights of tha St.-. ten, or tho property of their citizens in iho Ter 1 ritoriea. It follows that the citizens of all I the States may enter thu Territories of the j Union with their property of whatever kind, and enjoy it during tho territorial j condition, without ltt or hindranco, cither by Congress or by the subordinate Terri torial Governments. These principles flow direct'y from the absence of sovereignty iu tho Territorial I Governments, and from the equality of the I States. Indeed they are essential to that equality which is, and ever has been, the vital principle of our constitutional Uniou. They have been settled legislatively, settled judicially, and are sustained by right rea son. They rest on the rock of the Consti tution.
