    The Last Revelation from Douglas

    The regular Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Press (Douglas’ organ in the Keystone State), thus defines his position in the last number of that paper which has come to hand:

    Judge Douglas is more than a match for all his adversaries. No man can meet him, whether friend or foe, without being fascinated by his manners and by his extraordinary intellectual gifts. I have never known him to be more definant and decided than at this moment. Rest assured that, however willing he may be to submit to the action of the convention, HE WILL NOT CONSENT TO PUT HIMSELF UPON A PLATFORM WHICH RECOGNIZES AND REPEATS THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE DECISION OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES THAT SLAVERY EXISTS IN THE TERRITORIES OF THE UNION.
