Excerpt from Political Issues and Presidential Candidates: Speech of the Hon. John Hickman, Delivered in Concert Hall, Philadelphia, July 24th, 1860; Also, the Republican Platform Mr. President and gentlemen - The intelligent voter will so shape his action as to make it conduce to the success of a principle, rather than the elevation of a man. He will feel this to be the more incumbent upon him at such a time as the present, when the tendencies of parties are more distinctly marked than in any pre vions campaign. It will be my Object, this evening, to endeavor to exhibit, in a distinct light, the dividing line between the political parties Of the day, and to ascertain, if possible, what, in all probability, would be the effect, upon the coun try, of the election Of the respective candidates for the Presidency. If this were a strife merely between individual men, it would possess but triﬂing importance, and I should not trouble you with either remark or suggestion. But as I regard the contest, the determination will soon be made, not alone as to our value in the confederacy, but as to the destiny Of the nation itself.
