Resulted. That thi-- Convention does explictlv de
clare. as the sense of the American people, that af
ter for years o f 'ailure to restore the Union by the
j experiment of war, daring which, uuder thefre
j tense of a military necessity or war jower higher

I be-n disregarded in every part, and public lib<--ty
and private right alike trodden down, and the ina

I demand that immediate efforts be made for a eessa- |

j vention of all the States, or other peaeeble means,to
, the end that, at the earliest practicable moment,
j peace may be restored cn the basis ot the Federal
j Union of the States.
Re Atcd, That the direct interference of the mil
: itary authority of the United .States in the recent
elections held in Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri!)
| and Deleware* was < shameful violation of the
Constitution, and a repetition of such acts in the i
approaching e ection will beheld as reyolutionaiy
and resisted with all the means anj power under

Rttoltetl , That the aim and object of the Dem*

• rights of the .-to'es unimpaired ; art th.v
hereby declare that they consider the administrative
usurpation of exiraordm -ry and dangerous |owers

the civil by military arrest, imprisonment, trial,and
sentence of American citizens ill States, where civil
law exist* iq lull force, the suppiessiouof freedom of

tho interference with and tho dt cial of the right of

restoration of the Union and the perpetuation of a
government deriving its just powers from the con

Resolved , That the shameful disregard of the Ad

In a suffering condition, doserves tho severest rep
