At 12 o'clock precisely the assemblage was called to order by-Robert ¡tícLanB, of Md. Mr. Richardson, of 111., nominated Samuel He- dary, of Ohio, for temporary chairman. Carried unanimously. Sam. Medary, on taking the chair, returned thanks for the honor done him. He said he had attended every Democratic Convention since the first that nominated Jackson, and had the honor to be a memb,er of that wh ch nominated Franklin Fierce. He commented on the progress of Democracy and its extended influence, and believed that occasional storms in the party were calculated to purify the atmosphere. He thought that they were destined to triumph, despite temporary quarrels. The Rev. Mr. Nicholson, of Cincinnati, was then introduced, and delivered a prayer, after which Messrs. Alex. B. Oletheral, of Ala., and W. B. Ritchie, of Va., were elected temporary secretaries. Mr. Haris, of 111., moved the appointment of a Committee on Credentials, consisting of one delegate from each uncontested State, to be selected by the various delegations.

The announcement of the name of Mr. Ward for President was received with applause, and the report of the committee was unanimously adopted. The rules of the last National Democratic convention were adopted as rules oi this convention. Mr. Ward was conducted to the President's chair He thus addressed the convention: '•The summons to preside over the deliberations of the convention was as unexpected as the honor was undeserved. The distinguished gentleman who yesterday presided—the connecting link between the past and the present—had carried them back to a period when the democratic party .was accus-- tomed to assemble and go forth to battle with a great, noble and gallant party. That party, with the issues that divided us, has passed away. The great leaders of that party have, one by one, stolen away to their silent resting places, filled with years and honors,tnourned alike by political friends and foes— How sleep the brave who sink to rest, With all their country's honors blest. Others of that noble band who still survive are with us today to take part iu our deliberations, and go forth with us to battle for the constitution and the Union ; but this great party has passed away. We find ourselves surrounded by dangers before unknown, and our land from end to end convulsed with factions. On one side are men who will admit foreign born citizens among us only on condition of serfdom. They would dictate laws that power should be held only by thoBe who bow before some altar with themselves. They hold that they are only fit for power who approach the Throne of Grace after the fashion they themselves prescribe. On the other side is a faction only more dangerorU, because more numerous than the first—a faction with liberty on their tongues, but with treason festering in their hearts—who profess love for the Union only that they may bury in the ruins of the Union the glorious memories of the past and hopes of the future. This faction is formidable only in case of the success of its attempt» to unite against the dempcraticj party with the first. The national democratic party have met today to appoint standard-bearers to carry on the war against these factions. Let us, then, come together as a band of brothers, to lay ou the altar of patriotism and of the Union a willing sacrifice, personal preferences, sectional feelings, and above all private dissensions. Let our deliberations and actions be sanctioned by higher and purer motives. Let our preferences for persons be lost in a desire to protect and gave the constitution of the country I have an abiding confidence that the kindness which summoned me to this place will bear with mo In the performance of its duty, and that that kindness "will pardon any errors I may unintentionally commit. I now enter upon the discharge of that duty. It was announced, amidst great rejoicing, that the democrats had elected their candidates for Mayor and Councilmen in Washington city. Mr. Bayard, of Del., from the Committee on Ore dentiajs, reported on the contested Missouri seat case, admitting the anti-Bentou delegates. The report was received with cheers, and adopted. It was announced that the committee were en. gaged on the New York oase, and would report as soon as possible. The committee were allowed to sit during the session of the convention. On motion the Committee of Arrangements was authorized to appoint a Sergeant-at-Arms and two assistants. THIRD DAY.—The Committee on Resolutions made their report this morning. The report was enthusiastically received. The Baltimore platform, adopted in National Convention, in June, 1852, was reaffirmed ; and is as follows:— 1. Resolved, That the American democracy place their trust in the intelligence, the patriotism, and the discriminating justice of the American people. 2. Resolved, That we regard this as a distinctive feature of our political creed which we are proud to maintain before the world as the great moral element in a form of government springing from and upheld by the popular will; and we contrast it with the creed and practice of federalism, uuder whatever name or form, which seeks to palsy the will of the constituei.t, and which conceives no imposture too monstrous for the public credulity. 3. Resolved, therefore, That entertaining these views, the democratic party of this Union, through their delegates assembled in general convention, coming together in a spirit ol concord, of devotion to the doctrines and faith of a free representative government, and appealing to their fellow-citizens for the rectitude of their intentions, renew aud reassert before the American people the declaration of principles avowed by them when, on former occasions, in general convention, they have presented their candidates for the popular suffrages:— 1. That the federal government is one of Iimi ted powers, derived solely from the constitution, and the grants of power therein ought to be con strued by all the departments and agents of the gov. rnment, and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful constitutional powers". 2. That the constitution does not confer upon the gennral government the power to commence and carry on a system of internal improvement. 3. That the constitution does not confer authority upon the federal government, directly or indirectly, to assume thedebts of th e several States, contracted for local and internal improvements or o'tier State purposes, nor would such assumption he just or expedient. 4. That justice and sound policy forbid the federal government to foster one branch of indus try to the detriment of any other, or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another portion of our common country ; that every citizen and every section of thecouutry has aright to demand aud insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and to complete and ample protection of persons and property from domestic violence or foreign, aggression. 5. That it is the duty of every branch of the government to enforce and practise the most rigid economy in conducting our public affairs, and that no more revenue ought to be raised than is required to defray the necessary expenses of the government, and for the gradual but certain extinc tion of the publ c debt, 6. That Congress has no power to charter a national bank ; that ,we believe such an institution one of deadly hostility to the best interests of the country, dangerous to our republican institutions, and the liberties of the people, and calculated to place the business of the country withiu the control of a concentrated money power, and above the laws and the will of the people ; and that the results of democratic legislation, in this and all ether financial measures upon which issues have been made between the two political parties ol the country, have' demonstrated, to candid aud practical men of all parties, their soundness, safety and utility in all business pursuits. 7. That the separation of the moneys of the government from banking institutions is indispensable tor the safety of the funds of the government and the rights of the people. 8. That the liberal principles embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, and sanctioned in the constitution, which make ours the land of liberty and the asylum of the oppressed of every nation, have ever been cardinal principles in the democratic faith, and every attempt to abridge the privilege of becoming citizens and the owners of soil among us ought to be resisted with the same spirit which swept the alien and sedition laws from our statute books. 9. That Congress has no power, under the con- stitutian, to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several States, and that such States are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the constitution ; that all efforts of the abolitionists and others made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanence of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions. 4. Resolved, That the foregoing proposition covers, and was intended to embrace, the whole subject of slavery agitation in Congress, and therefore the democratic party of the Union, standing on this national platform, will abide by aud adhere to the faithful execution of the acts known as the Compromise measures settled by the last Congress, " the act for reclaiming fugitives from service or labor" included ; which act, being designed to carry out an express provision of the constitution cannot, with fidelity thereto, be repealed or so changed as to destroy or impair its efficiency. 5. Resolved, That the democratic party will resist all attempts at renewing, iu Congress or out of it»the agitation of the slavery question, under whatever shape or color the attempt mav be made. 6. Resolved, That the proceeds of the public lands ought to be sacredly applied to the national objects specified in the constitution, and that we are opposed to any law f r the distribution of such proceeds among the States, as alike inexpedient in polioy and repugnant to the constitution. 7. Resolved, That we are de:idedly opposed to taking from the President the qualified veto power by which, he is enabled, under restrictions and re-J sponsibilities amply sufficient to guard the public- interest, to suspend the passage" of a bill whose merits cannot secure the approval of two-thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, until the judgment of the people can be obtained thereon, and which has saved the American people from the corrupt and tyrannical elomination of the Bank of the united States, and from a corrupting system, of general internal improvements. 8. Resolved, That the Democratic party will faithfully abide by and uphold the principles laid; down in the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions of 1798, and in the report of Mr. Madison to the Virginia Legislature in 1799; that it adopts those principles as constituting one of the main foundations of its political creed, and is resolved to carry them out in their obvious meaning and import. 9. Resolved, That the war with Mexico, upon all the principles of patriotism and the laws of nations, was a just and necessary war on. our part, in which every American citizen should have shown himself on the side of his country, anrl neither morally nor physically, by word or deed, have given 'aid and comfort to the enemy.' 10. Resolved, That we rejoice at the restoration of friendly relations with our sister republic of Mexico, and earnestly desire for her all the blessings and prosperity which we enjoy under republican institutions; and we congratulate the Ameii-. can people upon the re-ults of that war, which have so manifestly justified the policy and conduct of the democratic party, and insured to the United S'ates •' indemnity for the past and security for the future." 11. Resolved, That in view of the condition of popular institutions in the Old World, a high and sacred duty is devolved with increased responsibility upon the democratic party of this country, as the party of the people, to uphold and maintain the rights of every State, and thereby the union. of the States, and to sustain and advance among us constitutional liberty, by continuing to resist, all monopolies and exclusive legislation for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many, and, by a vigilant and constant adherence to those principles and compromises of the Constitution which are broad enough and stroug enough to. embrace *and uphold the Union as it was, the Union as it is, and the Union as it shall be, iu the full expansion of the energies and capacity of this. great and progressive people. The following are added to the old platform,, and the two parts now form the new p'atform of the democratic party : And whereas, since the foregoing declaration was uniformly adopted by our predecessors in National Conventions, an adverse political and religious test has been secretly organized by a party claiming to be exclusively Americans, and it is, proper that the Americau democracy should clearly define its relations thereto; therefore, 1. Resolved, That the foundation of this. Union of States having been laid in its prosperity,, expansion and pre-eminent example in free gov-, ernment, built upon entire freedom in matters of religious concern, and no respect of persons in-regard to rank or place of birth, no party can justly be deemed national, constitutional, or in accordance with Americau principles, which bases its exclusive organization upon, religious opinions and accidental birth-place, 2. Thaf. we reiterate with renewed energy of purpose the well considered declarations of former Conventions upon the sectional issue of domestic slavery, and concerning the reserved rights of the States; and that we may more dittinctly meet the issue on which a sectional party, subsisting exclusively on slavery agitation, now relies to test the fidelity of the people, North and South, to the Constitution and the Union. 3. Resolved, That claiming fellowship with, ario? desiring the co operation of, all who regard the preservation of the Union, under the Constitution, as the paramount issue, and repudiating all sectional parties and platforms concerning domestic- slavery, which seek to embroil the States and Incite to treason and armed resistance to law in the Territories, and whose avowed purpose, if consummated, must end in civil war and-disunion, the American democracy recognize and adopt the principles contained in the organic laws establishing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska, as embodying the only sound and safe solution of the slavery question upon which the great national idea of the people of this whole country can, repose in its determined ccnservatism of the Union; non-interference by Congress with slavery iu States and Territories; that this was the basis of the compromises of 1850, confirmed by both the democratic and whig parties in National Conventions, iatified by the people iu the election of 1852, and rightly applied to the organization of Territories in 3 854; that by the uniform application of this democratic principle to the organiza-t tion of Territories and the admission of new States, with or without domestic slavery, as they may elect, the equal rights of all the States will be preserved intact, the original compacts of the Constitution maintained inviolate, and the perpe-. tuation and expansion of this Union ensured to. its utmost capacity of embracing, in peace and harmony every futuie American'State that may be constituted or annexed with a republican form, of government. ' 4. Resolved, That wo recognise the right of the people of all the Territories, including Kansas and Nebraska, acting through the fairly expressed wiili. of'the majority of actual residents; and whenever the number of their inhabitants justifies it. to I or in a constitution with or without domestic slavery, and be admitted into the Union upon terms of perfect equality with the other States. 5. Resolved, That the democratic party recog- nizesthe great importance in a political and commercial point of view, of a safe and speedy com-- munjeation within our own territory between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of this Union; and it is the duty of the federal government to exercise promptly all its constitutional powers for the at» tain a! en t of that object. 6. Resolved, finally, That the condition of popular institutions in the OldWorld, and the dangerous tendencies to sectional agitation, combined with the attempt to enforce civil and religious disabilities against the rights of acquiring and enjoying citizenship in our own land, a high and sacred duty has devolved, with increased responsibility, upon the democratic party of this country, as the party of the Union, to uphold and maintain the rights of every State, and thereby the Union of the States, and to sustain the advance among us of constitutional liberty, by continuing to resist all monopolies and exclusive legislation for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many, and by vigilant and constant adherence to those principles and compromises of the constitution which, are broad and strong enough to embrace and uphold the Union as it was, and the Union as it shall be, iu the full expansion of the energies and capacity of this great and progressive people. The following are the resolutions upon the fa« reign policy of the country :— 1. Resolved, That the,questions connected with the foreign policy of He country are inferior to no domestic question whatever, The time has come for the people of the United States to declare themselves in favor of free seas and progressive free trade throughout the world, and, by solemn manifestations, place their moral influence by the side of their successful example. 2. Resolved, That our geographical and political position in reference to other States on this continent, no less than the interest of our com* merce, and the development of our growing pow« er, requires that we hold sacred the principles in» volved ia the Monroe doctrine, and their binding eo o> *- 00 CM co CM m CM CM w Oil CM CM CM '■■h!:Í¡ CO o CM CO co _ *i- «SB CO
