JEFF. DAVIS ON PLATFORMS.
Senator Davis, of Mississippi, in his late speech in reference to Douglas, thus expressed his opinion about Platforms:
“The fact is that I have a declining respect for platforms. I would sooner have an honest man on any sort of a rickety platform you could construct, than to have a man I could not trust on the best platform that could be made.”
Let the Democracy who busted up about a platform at Charleston, read and inwardly digest the above, and they will quit taunting the supporters of Bell and Everett, who have put before the country ‘honest men, and capable, whom all men can trust, upon the simple platform of the Constitution, the Union, and the enforcement of the Laws.
