HAYDON AND THE ANTI-SLAVERY DELEGATES.
When- tho great Anti-Slavery Convention, to
which delegates were sent from this country, wns
held in Loudon, in 1S1H, llayiloii, tho painter was
employed to paint a picturo of the assembly. The
picture proved a failure; partly, wo suppose, from
tho hnsto with which it was painted, but chiefly
from tho dilliculty of making anything pleasing
from a mero crowd of portraits :
From Haydon's autobiography, a work' of no or-
dinary interest, wo extract tho following notices of
tho picture w hile it was under his hands :

tho House adjourned.
frnalv. Mr. Smith presented resolutions from
l,e-'il ituic of C.enicelicnt on the Nebraska!
bill nnd 1I1.3 repeal of tho Missouri Compromise.
After pi -.nesting in strong term against the repeal
.f "T ..''"'"ri (.ompromise, as a violation ol nti
nonni put ii. tiiev ileonrc a fixed purnoi-e never to
'consent to the lenal or nctual ndmission of shivery
into territory from w hu h it was excluded by tlio
act of I --il, or of the admission of slavo holding
Slate from any portion nf that territory.
Mr. Ctss remarked that ho Imped these resolu
tions w Imi put inlo plain Knglish did not mean
another Hartford Convention.
Mr. Sii.iih re. lied lo Mr. Cass in severe terms.
Tho lion. Senator may, if he pleases, stigmatise
the sentiment cot taincd iii thesn resolutions- n
tho sentiments emanating from a Hartford Conven
tion. Tln-y nro tho sentiments of tho freemen of
Cunnect-cut, and I beliovo they will turn out to be
tho sentiments of nn overwhelming majority of the
people of Michigan.
Air. Cas I heard nil this kind of denunciation
forty year ago, nnd with ns much violence ns enn
be used her.-, and I beard the Hartford Convention
ilefencli'd as n rightful net. That to which I wished
to cull attention was a declaration, that they would
not sol not to tho law of the land when passer
Willi respect to the people of my own State, I
thank the Senator for being sentinel thero, but I
bclievo 1 know their opinion ns well ns ho does. I
believe tho people of Michitran will stato their
lleprcsciitatives, when those liepro'cntativrs enrry
through n great constitutional principle, which se
cures to American citizens, wherever they are, the
right of sclf-goi eminent.
Mr. Smith rrplieil, ( barging Mr. Cass with having
changed his opinion on tho Wilmot Proviso, at
one timo advocating it, and nt another opposing it.
lie denied that tht'rO was nny threat in tho resolu
tions, that they say they will not consent to the
law. lie would not consent to it. A majority of
Northern people arc opposed to it, but that did not
mean they would take up nrms against tho Govern
ment, nnd involve tho country in a civil war.
They will opp.iso it politically, they will opnoso it
constitutionally, nnd they will opnoso it through
tlicir Heprcseutatives in the two houses of Con
gress. That is all that there is in the resolutions ;
nothing in the shapo of threats.
The resolutions wero ordered to lio on tho table
to be printed.
Mr. Clnytcn offered a resolution directing the
Committee on Foreign llelalions to inquire into the
expediency of providing by law for such restrictions
on tho power of American consuls residing in the
Spanish West Indies, to isuo sea letters on the
transfer tf American vc:scls in those islands, as
will prevent tho nl.uso ot the American nag in protecting
persons engaged in tho African slnvo trado.
A long debate ensued ou the subject of the ilave
trade, after which tho resolution was adopted.
Tho Indian Appropriation Pill was taken up, and
niter a snort lieoate, wns postponed.
The Senato then adjourned.

LETTER FROM MR. GIDDINGS.
To Editor of the New York Tribune.
Sin: In your paper of yesterday I notice a di
paicu iioiii tins city, si.iiuig mat
" Tho Whig fight well, but they aro not heartily
sustained by the other opponents of the hill, (iicl-
oiiigs, nurric .iiiiin, iiavens, nun mo rolts gener
ally. Tho former nro conscientiously opposed to
nficrin what they enll factious resistance, nnd of
course thero eniinot bo a co-operation with many
oi me suits.
I tay, unhesitatingly, that I no moro henrlily
sustained tho cflorts of thu lugs than I did of
thoso Democrats who labored through tho scenes
of yesterday und tho day befoio to preserve this
body from tho disgrace of striking down tho free
dom of debate on tho infamous bill lo establish
slavery in Nebrnaka and Kansas. Jt is invidious
to draw nny distinction of party names between
men who stood together in a conflict which will
long mark nn era in the history of our legislation.
1 speak not for Mr. Smith. Ho has nt nil times
spoken for himself. So far as I nm concerned, 1
appeal only to tho record, and to thoso who, for
thirty-six hours, remained with lue in tho hall.
Now bigs fought with morn determination than
Mr. lbivons, .Mr. Hughs nnd many of tho Softs.
These are days which will bo chronicled in the
history of our nation, und no partisan distinction
should bo mado on account of nny former political
associations among ilioso who now cordially co
operato upon tho great questions of tho dnv.
Yours, .1. Ii. tMPPl'.VGS.
Hall of Representatives, May 13, 1854.
The llicliinmul Ennuirer copies our statement of
the tact that. rroi. Allen, a mulatto w ho was re
cently bunted from the interior of our State on u
well-founded suspicion that he intended to marry a
white- gin, is now lecturing in J-.ngland to crowded
houses and thus comments I
"Such is the consistency of sha Abolitionists.
They teach the equality of tho races and declaim
against tho social proscription of tho negro : but
let soino iniiiaiio propose to marry a'wlute girl,
and straightway they 'hunt him oilt of tho State.'
Ihe doctrine nro lienutilul only in thoory; they
object to practical amalgamation."
The Ennuirer surely oueht lo kDOW that no Abo
litionist hud anything to do with tho huntititc away
of Piuf. Allen. All such outrages havo been the
work of the lowest and meanest class of whites,
who are hero, without oxception, bitter nnti- Abo
litionists, nnd particularly f iriuus ngainst "amal
gamation." Wo havo a prjtty largo acquaintance
throughout tho Frco Suites, and don't happen to
know una driiukcu vagnlsind, obscene rowdy or
shiftless loafer who is not a violent opponent of all
manner nf Abolition. Every human being who is
not henrlily und practically a Christian is natur
ally and instinctively nu aristocrat: he wants to
look down on soiuelaidy ; und if ho has nothing
but the color of his skin to base his aristocracy up
on, ho ha lo niako tho most of that. Wo presume
most Abolitionists would nilviso a white woman
not lo in irry a colored m in. if their advice were
akcd on the point : but all mobbing nil account nf
