THE PLATFORM ;
0J te yrfhnd ZcpulZLaan Party. AdciAcd ct CiiccffO, IScy Zl, -16CS.
The following platform, reported by
the Coramittee on Resolutions, was
unanimously adopted by the NAtiona1
Republican Convention in session at
Tbe National Republican party of
the United States, assembled in nat
ional Convention in the city of Chicago
on the 20th day of May, 1808, make
the following declaration of princi
First YVe congratulate the country
on the assured success of the recon
struction m-oiects of Consrress, as evinc
ed by the adoption, in a majority of
the States lately in rebellion, oi con
stitutions securing equal civil and
political rights to all, and regard it as
the duty of the government to sustain
these institutions and to prevent the
people of t?ueh States from being re
mitted to a state of anarchy.
Second. The guarantee of Congress
of equal suffrage to all loyal men of
the South was demanded by every
consideration of public safety, of grat
itude, and of justice, and must be
maintained, while the question of
suffrage in all the loyal States proper
ly belongs to the people of those States.
Third. "Vc denounce all forms of
repudiation as a national crime, and
honor requires the payment of the na
tluoal indebtedness in the utmost good
faith to all creditors, at home and
abroad, not only according to the letter
but the spirit ot the laws under wiiicn
it was contracted.
Fourth. It is due to the labor of the
nation that taxation should be equal
ized and reduced as rapidly as the
national faith will permit.
Fifth. The national debt, contracted
as it has been for the preservation of
the Union for all time to come, should
be extended over a fair period for re
demption, and it is the duty of Con
gress to reduce the rate of interest
thereon whenever it can possible be
Sixth. That the best policy to dim
inish our burden of debt is to so im
prove ourcredit that capitalists will
seek to loan us money at lower rates of
interest than we now pay, and must
continue to pay 60 longas repudiation,
partial or totd, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspected.
Seventh. I he government pi the
United States should be administered;
with the strictest economy, and the
corruptions which have been so shame-
lullv nursed and lostered l3 Andrew
Johnson call loudly for radical re
Fighth. "We profoundly deplore
the untimely and tragic death of
Abraham Lincoln, and regret the ac
cession of .Andrew Johnson to the
Presidcncv, who has acted treacher
ously to the people who elected him
and the cause he was pledged to sup
port ; has usurped legislative and jud
icial functions ; has refused to execute
the laws ; has used his high office to
induce other officers to ignore and vio
late the laws : has employed his ex
ecutive power to render insecure the
pro?perity, peace, liberty, and life of
the citizens : nas abused tue pardon
ing ower ; has denounced the Nation
al Legislature as unconstitutional:
has persistently and corruptly resisted,
by every means in his jxnver, every
proper attempt at the reconstruction
of tlie States lately in rebellion ; has
perverted the public patronage into
an engine of wholesale corruption, and
has been justly impeached for high
crimes and misdemeanors, and prop
erly pronounced guilty by the votes
of thjrty-hve Senators.
Ninth. Ihe doctrine of Ureat lirit-
ain and other European powers, that
liecause a man is once a subject lie is
always so, must be resisted at every
hazard bv the United States as a relic
of the fedual times, not authorized by
the law of nations and at war with our
national honor and independence.
Naturalized citizens are entitled to be
protected in all their rights of citizen
ship as though they were native born,
and no citizen of the United States,"
native or naturalized, must be liable
to arrest and imprisonment by anv
foreign power for acts done or words
spoken in this country. And if so ar
rested and imprisoned, it is the duty of
the Government to interfere in his
Tenth. Of all who were faithful in
the trials of the late war there are none
entitled to more especial honor than
the brave soldiers and seamen who
endured the hardship of campaign
and cruie,and imperiled their lives in
Ihe service of their countrv. The
bounties and pensions provided bv
law for these brave defenders of the
nation are obligations never to be for
gotten. The widows and orphans of
the gallant dead are the wards of the
people, a sacred legacy bequeathed to
the nation's protecting care.

From lh Xational (Go,) Republican.
It is not essential that a supporter of
Grant and Colfax should be a Repub
lican, nor a believer in Reconstruction
Acts, nor in the wisdom and justice
of colored suffrage. A. citizen may
believe the cardinal principles of Re
publican party to be erroneous, the
requirements of Congress unreason
able and unjust, colored suffrage wrong
and yet consider it his duty to support
General Grant for President In
short, man j good men agree entirely
in theory with the Democrats, and
yet consider it a sacred duty to vote
and work against their candidate for
the Presidency. "Why? Because the
Democratic platform, the declarations
of Rlair, and of Toombs, and Hill, and
liarupton. and Jrorrest, propose war
as a remedy for these evils. Hence,
every person that votes that ticket
declares, by such a vote, that he, too,'
favors war. Ihere is no escape trom
this conclusion. The Fourteenth Ar
tical isapartof the Congressional plan.
Congress, the President, and the Su
preme Court have recognized it as an
integral part of the Constitution of the
united States. Ihere is no possible
way to set aside the requirements of
thi amendment, nor to ignore the
Southern State Governments that par
ticipated in its adoption,- except by
tlie despeite aud uncertain remedy
of revolution. This, Blair proposes
to do. This, Toombs and Hill by
their arguments, advocate.
Now tlie question for the white men
of Georgia to determine is this : Do
they prefer another war, with all its
horrors, to pe muting the black men
to vote? Are the lessons of the past
to be taken for naught? Seven years
ago, in and loomns induced tne
people to go to war to secure to the
South the right to carry there slaves
into the territories. The people shed
oceans of blood in this contest. Wives
were made widows, children orphans,
persons of affluence beggars. What
was the-result? Did the South secure
her rights to the territories?" No: but
she lost her riirht to slavery in the
States, which had never before been
questioned. Thus the South did not
gain what she fought for, butlost what
Now war is again proposed, and by
whom ? The identical politciains that
Lurried tne south into the last unsuc
cessful contest. What assurance have
the Democrats thet they will be any
more successful in the next war. War
is a desperate remedy, and even the
party that is victorious are incalculable
sufferers. But there is no possible
chance of success by a resort to the
bayonet If the South could not whip
the Government when the negroes
were all in slavery, and when the
white were almost unanimous, and
when her leader had made the most
Unlimited preperations how can she
expect to succeed when the blacks are
free and nt nig for a right which the
country has guaranteed to them, and
when the whites can not be united?
It is all well enough to talk about
" dying in the last ditch," etc. Such
boasts sound well ; but the experience
of the past proves that those who use
such expressions take care to keep
away from any sort of ditches for
fear they should accidentally find the
We speak of Georgians who have
wives and children to care for, and
prefer other business to fighting. The
old leaders of the South are Radical.
They propose the most Radical meas

He is generous and brave. We be

no hard feelings toward the people of

of the late war were bad men : Geor

Rosecrans and 5ic Mexican
Mission Vermont Election.
New York, Sept. 2.
Gen. Rosecrans, in conversation at
the Astor House, yesterday, said that
he did not believe the Southern lead
ers were to issue an address, as had
been reported. In regard to the Mex
ican mission, he says that the policy
will be one of kindness and concilia
tion, and that filibustering or annex
ation movements will not be favored.
In the Board of Health, yesterday,
the regulations adopted by the State
Commissioner in reference to the cat
tle quarantine, were approved. They
direct that all droves arriving betaken
to one of the two quarantine yards.

But J must speak futher of our Clubs:
One was organized near Vienna, Dooly
county. All protested before hand
that they intended nothing to the
whites but on the day of meeting fear
ing troubie, they went out of town, to
meet on a colored friend's plantation.
Soon after being organized, the place
was surrounded, and the President,
Hugh Dean, forced off to jail, under a
strong guard of whites, well armed.
The Judge of the County Court and
Sheriff of the county swore they
would not recognize the negro as
having the right to vote and hold
office, and they should not have Grant
Clubs in that county; that if they
could not defeat Grant any other way,
they would kill the last dammed negro
in that county. Another of the Club
was knocked dawn for claiming that
the colored people had the right to
meet and peaceably discuss their rights,
and all the rest were frightened away.
After this success by a hundred and
fifty armed whites, they went up to
where another Club had been organiz
ed this was some six miles off and
finding the meeting had gone through
with its business, they hunted for
some of its members ; ran women and
men into the woods from several plant
ations, where they were at work. All
these whites, being armed, were on
horseback. A detachment, with a
Constable with it, came by Mr. Pitts
man's plantation, late in the evening.
After pacing a lot of colored men at
work, three returned, came up to two
of the men sitting on the fence, and
aid to Jerry Brown: "You are one
of the scoundrels who had a gun at
the Club meeting come along with
us don't yon run, or we will shoot
you." Their guns levelled, so he had
to go. Down near Mr. Wallace's Mill
he was tied to a tree, and shot dead
part of his head, was shot away, shot
in the head, back etc. The man was
inquired for next morning, and some
of the same command told us where
the body could be found. When found,
the hogs was hold of it. How many
colored men have been killed and
thrown in the swamps, God only
knows. Be it said, to our race's credit,
we have not killed a white man since
we have been freed in this county.
These white citizens are going about
declaring we are not free ; are taking
our shot guns away from us. They
all have army guns, most shoot sever
al times. Most of the colored people
I talk to are going to leave the eounjy ;
but to go now, the whites would have
all our crops, which it seems they
desire. The jail is full of Grant Club
men, who are persuaded every day to
join the Seymour and Blair party, but
they refuse ; so they are kept in jail
otherwise they would be set free.

tallwell built man in a suit of black.
The face is a kindly, pleasant one, the
beard is sandy and grizzled, and the
cheeks are flushed. The forehead is
high, and the eyes are gray and soft
in expression. The mouth, squarely
cut, denotes decision, and there is that
quiet, resolute air about liim that re
minds one of Gen. Grant, whom he
strongly resembles in looks and man
ner. Although sudr.ng iVom an at

ly above pain, and after dinner con

versation bears directly upon the com
ing campaign, I give it in full :

"Reporter. Will he keep his con-
contracts in regard to labor?
"General Longstreet I can relate
my own experience. My men have
worked well. They like to have a
white man come out in the field and
tell them what to do. There was al
ways a class of lazy men who would
sit in their houses and give their orders.
These men deserved to have trouble.

If anybody has forgotten Mr. Rob
ert Ould, the Rebel Commissioner
for the exchange of prisoners, it is
not the fault of that gentlemen him
self, for he has lost no opportunity of
keeping his name and his former funct
ions before the public. The mission
which he seems to have" chosen since
the close of the war is that of shifting
the burden of responsibility for the
sufferings of Union prisoners in the
SoutR from the shoulders of the Con
federate authorities, where it belongs,
to the officers of our own Govern
ment, who never relaxed their efforts
to secure the liberation of our captive
soldiers by a fair exchange. It will
be remembered that he was surround
as a witness on the Wirz trial, and his
testimony, had it been given on that
occasion, might have settled the ques
tion forever; but unfortunately the
Court ruled it irrelevant, and he was
not examined Since then he has
been perpetually charging the blame
upon one person, after anotheraccord-
ing as the fancy took him. First he
indicted Mr. Lincoln's Administration
in the lump. Then he fixed the fault
upon Secretary Stanton, isext ne
turned upon Gen. Butler, and the
other day, in a letter to The Rational
Intelligencer, lie made out uen. tr rant-
to be the guilty man. somebody
hereupon has opportunely called to
mina a letter oi jtir. uum a it me

accepted by our Government, and
that While we returned Southern pris
oners in health and strength we re
ceived in their place unfortunate
wretches whom cruelty and starvation
had reduced almost to thedoorof death.
The letter was written from City Point
while the exchange was in progress,
and is well worn, reprinting Itruns
as follows :

rived with 3-50 iolitit al prisoners, Gen.
Barrow and several other prominent
men among them.
I wish 3-ou to send me at 4 o'clock,
Wednesday morning, all the military
prisoners (except officers) and all the
political prisoners you have. If any
of the political prisoners have no hand
proof enough to convict them of being
spies, or of "having committed other
offenses which should subject them to
punishment, so state opposite their
names. Also state whether you think,
under all the circumstances, tbey
should be released.

largely in our favor. W6 get rid of a

OfUcial Correspondecce a to

New York, Sept. 2.
A ccorresporulenee took place re

Moran, American Charged' Affairs at
London, and Mf. Thornton, the Brit
ish Envoj at Washington, on the
subject of tlie Fenian prisoners. Warren
one Castelio. who are naturalized .citi
zens of the United States. This cor
resjxmdence has been published in
full in the London journals, but the
main points are simply these: Mr.
Seward writes to Mr. Moran, with a
request to read the letter to LordS.m
ley, to the effect that the House of Re
presentatives of the United States has
passed the resolutions requesting the
President to take such measuees as
shall appear proper to t-ecure the re
leasT from imprisonment cf Messrs.
Warren and CasttHo, imprisoned In
Ore.it Britain for words and rtetsspek
cnuaduoncin this country, therein'
ignoring our naturalization laws ; and
to take such other steps to secure their
return to our flag with such ceremo
nies as are appropriate to the occasion ;
and he therefore asks the uncondition
al surrender of those prisoners.
Lord Stanley, in his reply through
Mr. Thornton, says as regards the
imprisonment of Messrs. Warren and
Castello, I have to point to you that
the allegation, on wbich Mr. Se ward's
request for their release is founded,
is that they were convicted for words
spoken and acts committed in the
United States, rests on a total miscon
ception of the facts. These prisoners
were convicted of felon3 at the Com
mission Court for the county cf Quinn,
held in October last, the most promi
nent overt act insisted upon andproved
against them being that the had
come over to Ireland and cruised" along
the coast with the intent to effect
a landing of men and arms in Ireland
and in order to raise an insurrection
against the Queen. The evidence ad
duced against these prisoners, in the
course of the trial of words spoken
and acts committed by them in the
United States, was gien in strict ac
cordnace with the rules of war as paf
of the testimony connecting them
with a I enian conspiracj' which had
existed in the county of Dublin, and
which county the commission court
set, and which conspiracy had for its
object the subversion of her Majesty's
authority and the establishment of a
Republic in Ireland.
