pie the proposed XVth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States as in palpable violation of our State constitution, and we solemnly protest against Indiana being counted for said amendment; and we hereby declare our unalterable opposition to its ratification.

11. That any attempt to regulate the moral ideas, appetites, or innocent amusements of the people by legislation is unwise and despotic.

12. That we are opposed to any change in the naturalization laws of the United States, whereby admission to citizenship will be made more difficult or expensive; and we especially denounce the proposed plan of transferring the naturalization of aliens to the courts of the United States, and abridging the powers of State courts in that respect, as a hardship and expense to the poor and friendless candidate for American citizenship: we recognize the proposed change as the off-shoot of intolerant "Know-Nothingism"— the "twin relic" of radicalism itself.

OHIO.

Democratic, June 1, 1870.

The democracy of Ohio, coming together in the spirit of devotion to the doctrines and faith of free representative government, and relying for success upon discussion and the intelligence of the people, deem the present convention a fitting occasion to reassert the following time-honored principles of the Democratic party:

That the federal Government is one of limited powers, derived solely from the Constitution; that the grants of power made therein ought to be strictly construed by all the dependents and agents of the Government, and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful powers;

That the Constitution of the United States is founded on the fundamental principle of the entire and absolute equality of all the States of the Union, and it is not competent for Congress to impose upon them any conditions or restrictions in respect to their internal concerns which the federal Constitution has not imposed;

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 of the democratic faith, and every attempt to abridge the privileges 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 the statute books;

And, in order that we may more distinctly declare our views of the measures and policy of the present administration,

Resolved, That we denounce the present tariff, as well as the substitute lately introduced in the House of Representatives by the Committee of Ways and Means, as a gigantic robbery of the labor and industry of the country; that they are Bolely designed to advance the interests of a few thousand monopolies, and that they should no longer be submitted to; and that no candidate for Congress, nor for any other office, is worthy of support who is not in favor of a low revenue tariff, which closely approximates to free trade;

that in the arrangement of any revenue tariff all the necessaries oi life should be absolutely free of duty.

2. That the internal revenue system of the United States is unendurable in its oppressive exactions; that it should be immediately remodeled; that its annoyances of stamps and licenses and taxes upon sales and incomes should be abolished; that the tax itself should be collected by the State and county officials; and that the multiplication of officers is wholly unnecessary, except to eat out the resources of the tax-payers; and that we pledge ourselves to effect a thorough reform in this particular. We denounce the profligacv in the present administration of the federal Government, the. corruption which has entered all the official stations, the favoritism which, overlooking fitness for office, has appointed to positions of public trust the friends or tools of those who control the public patronage, and the imbecility which directs the destinies of the republie, without an apparent purpose, and manages its affairs with such embarrassment and disaster to the material interests of the people at home, and with such disregard of the rights and liberties of its citizens abroad.

3. That land monopoly is one of the great evils of our country and against the spirit of our institutions; that the whole of our public lands ought to beheld as a sacred trust to secure homesteads for actual settlers; we therefore denounce the recent action of Congress in making grants to mammoth railroad corporations, which are already too powerful, and may become dangerous to a free people.

4. That we regard the act recently^wssedby Congress to enforce the "Fifteenth Amendment,' as unconstitutional, unjust and oppressive; an invasion of the rights of the States, subversive of the best interests of the people, and therefore demand its unconditional repeal.

5. That the power of the federal Government to assess and collect taxes on bonds of the United States is clear and unquestioned; and we demand of Congress that a share of taxation equal to the fair average amount levied in each State on money loaned shall be assessed and collected from all investments made in bonds.

6. That we are opposed to the system of national banks, and demand the immediate repeal of the law creating them, and that in place of the notes of such banks treasury notes of the United States should be substituted.

7. That the Democracy of Ohio sympathize with the efforts of all people struggling for selfgovernment, and that we denounce the truckling of the federal Administration to Great Britain and Spain, and the efforts of the party in power to reduce whole States in our Union to a condition of vassalage to the general Government.

8. That the thanks of the Democracy of Ohio are extended to our Senator, Allen G. Thurman, and the Democratic Representatives in Congress, who, though in a small minority, have bravely contended for the principles of democracy and the interests of the people.

9. That upon the foregoing platform we invito all the electors of Ohio, without regard to past differences, to vote for the ticket this day nominated.
