THE CLEVELAND NOMINATIONS,
General Fremont's Letter of Acceptance.
LETTER TO GENERAL FREMONT.
NEW-YORK, June 3.
GENERAL : A convention of the peop'e sit
ting at the city of Cleveland, in the Stare ot
Ohio, on the 31st day of May, 1864, have
nominated you unanimously and by acclama
tion as a candidate for President of the Uni
The convention have appointed as their
Committee, with instructions to communi
cate to you the result of their deliberation,
sud to ask your acceptance of the nomina
In discharging this duty the committee
need hardly inform you, general, that the
convention which has thus put you in nomi
nation for the office of President, represent
ed that great mass of the nation which hold
in practice as well as in theory to the funda
mental doctrine of its founders, that all men
have the inalienable right to life, property,
and the pursuit of happiness, and that slave
ry and caste are incompatible with irs enjoy
ment, and ough not to be suffered to exist.
The convention, true to its faith in the
common brotherhood of man and of govern
merit by all the people for ail the people,
adopted a series of resolutions which the
committee submit for your consideration, go
ing in some Scne to expie-s the views which
they hold in unison with those of the radical
democracy of the nation upon some of the
main issues to be tried before the people at
the coming presidential election.
That they do not cover sp cificaliy every
point of the political frith of the radical do
moeracy of the country, or do not d. fine per
in;; -i as sharply as they might have been
made to do, the radical views of the conven
t n up<-a tne subjects presented, is, after all,
ot little importance, for the reason that the
illustrious nominee ol the convention for
President is the living embodiment of all its
principles of government and civil and mill
tary a Iwinistration which has called into be
lli! the political organization that has
ma ;e you, general, its standard bearer.
Y ur own high character for fidelity to the
••fl ;al f'glits of all the people, and the signal
juoofs you have given to thy world of the
i* ssesMonof the statesmanship a d wisdom
necessary to govern well and jostiv, and ot
the generalship so sorely needed to carry the
war in a quick and triumphant issue, arc a
!>• lUr guaranty that the principles you repre
ss ' wilt not be betravod, should the nation
< vuUi you tn i, A chief magistracy, than any
••r.iten profession of political faith, however
A;,. . o .y drawn and gravely accepted, with
tut r.t to be broken.
L-t t.ie c lventioti, in what they have
<• ive substantially covered "the whole
g- ..ii- I ofiije political faith of the radical
i ( Hiocracy, in asserting the necessity for re
estahhshuig the supremacy of the federal Un
for the faithful ex-cutio > of the laws of
T.i L uited States ; fur maintaining the lib
cities of perun, speech, and press, except
when suspended by martial law; for sup
presbir.g the rebellion by force of arms and
without compromise; for amending the Con
i'itulicn eo as to abolish and prohibit slavery
fore ret ia the United States, and securing to
all men absolute equality before the law; for
integrity and economy in the adminisi.ati • n
of the national government ; for upholding
the t ight of asylum r except for crime and of
fens?* against international law ; for the vin
dication of the Moui oe doctrine, bv declar
ing anew the determination of the American
people not to tolerate the setting up of an<.
anti republican government on this continent
by any foreign power; for insisting upon ap
plying the one term principle to the office of
I'rest lent, and amending the Ceastitutioh, so
as lo provide for the election of that officer
hy a direct vote of the whole people : for re
stricting the power of reconstructing rebell
ious s'ates to the people through their repre
scii'aiives in Congress; and for confiscating
the lands of rebels, and distributing them
among the soldiers and actual settlers.
W hat these principles would tnean in prac
tice the convention clearly declared, general,
whan they put you upon them as their can
didate for President, for they knew and the
country knows, that you willjfelected, faith
fully carry them out to all their logical c> n
scqnences without fear or favor, and give the
Country an administration of public affairs,
that will command the affections of the
whole people and reptore it to its former
high place in the scate of nations.
J'ahaps we may best illustrate the tern
per of the convention by referring you to the
letter of Mr, Wendell Phillips, tho reading
ot which ordered and received with a
storm of applause. We ferl authorized to
declare it as our opinion, that had it been
offered as a platform of the pi inciples of
government and administration, it would
have been adopted with the same tumultu
ous applause as that which hailed your nom
ination. Its masterly exposition of the needs
of the country in thi dark crisis of its ex
istence and struggles for continued life is a
fitting commentary upon the purposes ot the
convention, and we commend it to your cou
sidcratioo as a part of taeir deliberations.
And now, general, hating discharged our
duty imposed on us by the convention, we
trut yoq will fayor us with an early reply,

GENERAL FREMONT'S ACCEPTANCE.
G ENIT,EMEN ; In answer to the letter,
which I have had the honor to receive from
you, on the part of the representatives of the
people assembled at Cleveland, the 31st of
May, 1 desre to express rny thanks for the
confidence which led them to offer me the
honorable and difficult position of their can
didate in the approaching presidential elec
Very honorable, because in offering it to
me, you act in the name of a great number
of citizens, who seek above all things the
good of their country, and who have no sort
of selfish interest in view. Very difficult,
because in accepting the cand oacy von pro
pose to me, I sm exposed to tin reproach of
cresting a rchism in the party w ill which I
have been identified.
Hud Mr Lincoln remained faithful to the
principles he was elected to defend, no schism
culd have been created and no contest
w><u'd have Leon possible. This is not an
ordinary i led mn ; iris a contest for the
right even to hive candidates, and not mere
ly, as usual, for the choice among them
Now for the first time since 1776, the ques
tion oi constitutional liberty has been bro't
direct!v before the people for their serious
consideration and vote. The ordinary rights
secured under the Constitution and th<- laws
of the country hare been violated and e.v
[rjordinary powers have been usurped by
ih.e Credit ive. It is directly before the pen
p'e r.'.c to say whether or not the principles
esrabi -bed by the revolution '? w rth main
If, as we have been taught to believe, these
guarantees for 'tb<-rtv whtch made the dis
tinctive name and glory of our country nru
in truth inviolably sacred, then there must
he a protest against the arbi'rary violation
which had not even the excu-e of necessity.
I'iie schism is made by who force the
choice between a shameful M fence or a pro
test agauisi wrong. In such consideiations
originated the Cleveland Convention. It
was aruoue it 3 objects to arouse the attention
of the people *to such facts, and to bring
them to realize that while tro are saturating
southern soil with the best blood of the
country in the name of liberty, we have re
ally parted with i; a; home.
To-day we hare in the country the abuses
of a military dictation without its unity oj
action and rigor of execution. An admim
tration marked at home by disregard of con
stitutional rights, by its violation of pet son
ai liberty and the liberty of the press, and.
as a crowning shame, by its abondonment of
the right of asylum, a right especiailj- dear
to all free nations abroad, its course has been
characterized by a feebleness and want of
priuciple which has misled European powers
and driven them to a belief that only com
mercial interests and personal aims are con
cerned, and that no great principles are in
volved in the issue. The admirable conduct
nf the people, their readiness to make every
sacrifice demanded of them, their forbear
ance and silence under the suspension ofev
erything that could be suspended, their ma
ny acts of heroism and sacrifices, were all
rendered fruitless by the incapacity, or, to
speak more exactly, by the personal ends for
which the war was managed. This inca
pacity and selfishness naturally produced
f-uch results as led the European powe.s,
and logically enaugh, to the conviction that
the North, with its great, superior popula
tion, its immense resources, and its credit,
will never be able to coerce the south.—
Sympathies which should have been with us
from the outset of this war were turned
against UR, and in this way the administra
tion has done the ceuntry a double wrong
abroad. It crealed hostility, cr at best in
difference, among those who would have
been its friends if the real intentions of the
people could have been better known, while
at the same time it neglected no occasion for
making the m st humiliating concessions.
Agaiust this disaatrous condition of affairs
the Cleveland Convention was a protest.
The principle* which form the basis of its
platform have my unqualified and cordial
approbation, but I cannot so heartily concur
in all the measures which you propose. '
do not believe that co Jiscation, extended to
to the property of all rebels , is practicable ;
and it w< re so, Ido not think it a measure
of sound policy, It's, in fact, a question
belonging to the people themselves to decide,
and is a proper occasion for the exercise of
their original and sovereign authority. As
a war measure, in the beginning of a revolt,
which might be quellod by prompt severity
I undi-rtand the policy of confiscation ; but
not as a final measnrg of reconstruction after
the suppression of an insurrection.
In the adjustments winch are to follow
peace.no consideration of vengeance can con
sistently be admitted.
The object of lbs war is to make perma
nently secure the peace and happiness of the
while country, and there was but a single
element in the way ol its attainments. This
element of slavery may be considered prac
ticully destroyed in the country, and it needs
only your proposed amendments of the Con-
U.ltfi'.iDß, to make its extinction complete,
With this extinction of slavery the pat tv
divisions created by it have also disappeared.
And il in the history of the country there
has ever been a time when the American
people, without regard tonne or another of
the political divisions, were called upon to
give solemnly their voice in a matter which
involved the safety of the United States, it
i& assuredly the present tune.
If the convention at Baltimore will nom
inale any man whose past life justifies a
well grounded confidence tn his fidelity to
our cardinal principles, there is no reason
*hy there should be any division a many the
really patriotic vttn of the country. To
any such I shall he most happy to give a
cordial and active support.
My own decided preference is to aid in<
'his way. md nor to be mvself a candidate
But if Mr Lincoln should be nominated.
as I believe it would be fatal to the country
to indorse a policy and renew a power, which
has cost us ihe lives of thousands of men
needlessly put the c utntry < n the road to
Lankruotcy, there will remain no other al
tt-rnuuve I.ut to organize against hun every
element of conscientious opposition with the
view to prevent the misfoitune of his re elec
In this "ontiugenev, I accept the nomina

We need pot tell t on, general, of the radi
cal character of that convention, (or you were
us worthy presiding officer; nor need we
refer particularly to the resolutions which
were adopted as the basis of the now pollti
cal organization which the necessities ol the
times have called into being. You know
them all ; and your outspoken indorsement
of the position taken by the convention as
well as your eminent of freedom through a
Song career of nsefulltiess, won fir you that
confidence ci the convention which resulted
iu electing you as a candidate for the high
office of Vice-President.
The war, general has swept away all old
party tics, and he who is wise enough to ap
preciate this fact, and range himself on the
side of his itnperrilled country, deserves the
confidence of all patuots. Amongst the
thousands of Democrats who have thus
shown their wisdom, no man of your ancient
p lit ical faith in the nation baa taken a high
er or nobler stand than yourself, and to this
fact the convention was keenly aMve.
When the war broke out, you took the
field again-t the common enemy, and led our
brave soldiers to battle on many a hard
fought field in which you showed yourself
the true soldier. And when it was the fash
ion of the government to respect the rights
of rebels to their slaves, and thus to rein
force them to the extent, you boldly advoca

rebellion of the immense resource which
slavery conferred upon it, by its destruc
Your fellow citizens of New York, general,
without respect to party, generously remem
bered your devotion to the cause of the Coun

tion declared their confidence in you by
chosing you one of the highest offices in their
gift. With this record, and with your fear,
lyss advocacy of the principles of Ike radical
democracy before tnem, the convention did
not hesitate, but will one accord, called on
you to complete the ticket bearing on it tho
name of the ihistrious Fremont.
In Conclusion general the committee hope
you will favor them with your early
accepting the n miination, in order that the
radical democracy may fling to the breeze at
once the invincible flag of freedom, union and
independence, and move upon the enemy's
wotks without delay,

Who more gleeful, nappy, charming and

tx-elve to fifteen years of ope ? This epoch
of iheir life te-einbles that period of a sum
uu r morning, known only to early risers,
which combines the soft light of the dawn
with the magnificent splendor of the full

and purity, givng promise of ail those grac

full of life and good cheer, thinking no evil

having that good of which it was said in pos
session of Marv, it shall never bo taken from
her. Would that these noble graces were
proof in all cases, as in the few against the
blightning and withering influences of fash
ionable life. But alas, they are not, which
may be one reasou why they appear so pleas
ing at that period of life which we have natn
ed. There is no higher ideal of womanhood
seen in life than that wh'ch carries thtse
qualities of girlhood into the fulness of life
As simple, trusting, unaff-ctnd, cheerful,
