Mr. Ranks of Kentucky rose and said,
that as a delegate from Kentucky he
bad come here In acquiesce in the decision
of this Convention ; ho bowed before its
determination, and hu could assure the
Convention thai tho nomination made last
evening would receive the hearty support
of bis const it uenisal hum u would
not be his fault if it did not. Thn -it-uation
of the Kentucky delegation had,
he said, been one of peculiar responsibility
they had Iboir first choice, but they
came hern to sustain the nomination when

Convention they would do so, Among

Mr Rpverdy Johnson of Maryland, said
thai Maryland's choice was well kiinwn
it was unneces-nry now In mention the
individual. Tho delegation had upheld
Unit choice In tho Inst. Rut satisfied, on
consultation with I ho delegates from other
sections nf the Union, that tho cbuice ol
.Maryland would not be the choice of this
convention, and that in opinion fa major
uy of the delegates there was another
name that could carry dismay into t he rank
nf the enemy he pmpo-ed, on (he pari ol
the delegation from Maryland, lo offer a
resolution that the remit of the balloliugs
be utiotnninu-ly confirmed, and that Gen.

Mr Cherry, of North Carolina, saidi
l hal the Sta'o ho reprerenled had remain
ed comparatively quiet in the selection ol
the nominee. She had her firt choice
a" well as other S'a'cs ; hut she had ton
long fought against the spoilers not to
know her duty. and she would stand by her
-icier Slates in the preccnt contest, by
giving ti en. Win. II. Hamsun a deter
mined support : and when the election re
l urns pome in. said M r (J Ihev will s-how
thai 'OLD RIP IS WIDE AWAKE

Mr. Preston, of Kentucky, said the con
volition had already been correctly assured
that the delegation from his state came
here for conciliation and compromise liar
tnony and concession and he was certain
that the rcMilutiou he wos about to pro
pose was one that would meet the appro
batioo of the Convention. It might rial
orally be thought, said Mr P. that Ken
tucky siands here in ihe altitude of one
disappointed ol her favorite choice. Her
people it w as true had their preference;
hut ihey were Whigs and would sustain
their country ; and to prove that their first
choice u ill -Detain them in that course,
-aid Mr P. 1 will stole that there is now a
letter in this Convention from Ihe Hon.
II. Clay, that if rend will ili-p'ay the spir
that anitn.ites htm to ri'u.,1 i.. t;n.. liar,
nson. lie moved that Mr. Combs ol
Kentucky, in whose possession Ihe letter
wa, he requested lo read it.
The Convention by acclamation desired
the letter to he read.
Mr Combs said that his colleagues had
truly represented their State. If, fatd he,
the heart nf Kentucky, is bruised, it is noi
broken: Kentucky was born a Whig State,
i-he has lived a Whig Slate ! and I hope
tn God, she may dm a Whig Stale ! The
life of her son, IIknrv Ci.av, said Mr C.
is his ciilogium uud the hutorian must do
htm justice.
Mr Comns then read a letter from Mr
Clav, urging upon the delegates from Ket:
lucky, ihe importance of ol union among
the elements of opposition to Van Ruren
ism. urging i hem to disregard hw own
position, and paying a merited compliment
to Gen, Harrison, whom he styled the
distinguished citizen of Ohio."
On motion the letter was ordered lo be
entered on the journals.
Gov. Harbour, of Virginia, President
of the Convention, said hu rejoiced the
letter iroin lUr Llay had been read. For
his own part, niter the report of the com.
mitten last evening, from rumors which he
heard, hu had been inclined to think that
other action might ho taken. As regards
I ho disinterested subject of the proposed
action, said Gov Ii. distinguished bv the

iry s History. When danger has threaten.
I'd. Henry Clay has alwuys been the fore
most to avert it, and his patriotism und
firiniies on all occa-ious, will embalm his
fi ry in the hearts of ihe American
people. Rut beyond ihe consideration
with which as a citizen of the republic,
regard Mr 15,, there aru other reasons for
my ardent attachment tn him, j have
known bun from my infancy, and in the in
lereonrse, under ihe gaurd of honorable
confidence and private friendship, on no ec
easioti have I ever heard a sentiment trotu
Henry Clay which was not that of mi ar
dent put r ml and devoted Iriend of his
county, There is no "elfi-hncs' about bun
no petty schpiiiing for his own advance
ment. And had it been your pleasure,
gentlemen, tn nominate hmi in ihe Presi
deuyc. his elecnou would have opened a
now epoch in Ihe history of our country.
Ho would not have been Ihn little, dntv,
petty tool of a party; bin would have
cleansed ihn Augean stable and made us
a happy people,
But nnlwithslanding my feelings for Mr
Clay, said Gov. R and tho hopu" cuter
lamed that he would receive the nnuiina
lion, I havu come to the conclusion thai so
far as my vote and influence go, they shall
sustain the harmony of this Convention,
and I shall therefore vote for Ihe una n i
rnmis nomination of GEN. VM. II.
HARRI30N.
Jlr B W Leigh, of Virginia, said that
ho concurred in the sentiments of his col-
1 in his vole for Ihe unatiiinoiH entry of Ihe
nomination on the journal. The letter ol
,M( Clay was an evidence that in his heart
disinterested patriotism was superior to all
other feelings. He Mr L could not
think that the ambition ofsiichn mini as
Henry City could be gratified by being
nude President, lie has already secured
a fatti" that will live as long as pure gov
ernmenta renown thai will survive the
marble mnnuineiii that will cover his grave
noil a renown more valuable in his Mr
L' opinion than any station, however ex
alted ii may be.
ftlr Leigh sunt that one of the pnrpo-es
for which Ihe Convention had met had
been accomplished, nod he for one would
give his heart and hand to crown its labors
with sticce-s.
JVr Leigh olsn said that he Inn had had

ml itnntp, old personal Iriend, Gun. Win
field Scoll, nod ho could ii-sori: tin; Coir
Vent ion , i hal ho Ion would sanctum their

Mr. I A K'ltg. of New York, said that
i'B n ri preventative nf New ork, he re
gretted Hint the ehnice nf his Smte had
not prevailed injllie tioininal'ou : hut, stud
.Mr K. we have surrendered him with man
ty fiimiipsj, because we know that the
choice cuii M not but fa'l upon an Individual
worthy nl the support ol American Iree
men. Our votes have been .cast tn the
conviction that the cauud.ite nf this ('on
vent ion will ult iuiately carry. We have
presented to thepinple n name unsullied
bv any spot of civil or military dohnqnouc'.
We have g'ven tho Uit ligu shod indiv dir

vVr K stud he would not detain the
Cotiveniioo by n speech, hut would merely
remark that in the fi. Id Gen Harrison ia-di-p
aypd equal n' r with (Jen Scitt-nnd
he uns certain Ihe latter would re-p"(idlo
the Coiivpiii ton, "God prosper your deci
sion-i-God hlpis you all.
Mr Dudley Seidell, of New York, 'aid
he wa.-one of ihe minority, who formed
one third of the delegation from that Suite
and went with ihe reprsentative' of Ken
Micky and Virginia in the selection of a
candidate. They had pursued that object
till success became hopeloss; but whatever
may have been our preferences, said Jlr
S.. we concur heartily in carrying out the
ileeisinu of i he Convention.
Mr .1 Roberts, o Pennsylvania, ad'
dres-ed the ConvenOon in favor of Ihe
nomination. He ,-anl he hud been in fa'
vnr ol I no iiomiuiiiii.il nf Mr Clay ; but he
ing out 'vnted, would not only acquiesce,
hill would unite heartily in the snppori nf
Gen. Win , Harrt-on. anil would do oil
in Iin power in lurlher his election.
Mr 11. Johnson of Maryland then offered
the following resolution :
Resolved, That this Convention utmiir
niou-lv recutn nil to the people ol the
United Slates, Gen. WM. H. IJarrnnn.nl
Ohio, as a enuiliil.ile for Pre-tdeol, and
JOHN TYLER, of Vigtnia.ns a candidate
for Vice President.
Before tho qti'Stinn was taken. Gov
Owen nf Norlh Cu'olina, said the ballot
committee were ready to report on Ihe
subject of tho Vice-Presidencv: That
'.'31 vo'es had been cast for Vice President
the vole of Virginia not having been
cast, end that the 231 voles hud am, been
cast for JOHN TYLER, of Virginia, who
was accordingly reported bv the committee
as the candidate fof the Vice-Presidency.
ftlr. B, W. Leigh, of Viigima, then
stated thai the vole of Virginia had not
been carl because it was understood that
Mr. Tyler, one of the delegation, would in
nil probability receive the nominal ion, and
lehcacy therefore forbade their participa
tion.
Col. Swift of Pennsylvania, briefly ex
pressed his original prelereneo lor the dts-
i ingui-hi'd Si a i ps, nan of Ken tuck v Henrv
Clay and concluded by declaring his de
termination to yield his preference, and
heartily and cordially lo give his support
i the nommaiinu of the Convention, and
return lo his Coiistn iients and recommend
to them lo do so likewise.
Mr. Sprngup nf Ma-sochiisetts. next rnse
nnd congratulated the convention on (he
happy result which was about to crown its
labors. He relerred to Ihe fact that Un
delegates came here, much divided in opto
mo. noo to tne Hopes entertained bv our
eoptnies that ihey would be divided in the
selection of a candidate. Happily Ihev
have been disappointed. H" alluded to
the character and worth of ftlr. Clay, his
distinguished services to ihe country, and
Ins high admiration of htm. ftln-stichn
setts, he said, also bud her fuvnrtte son, but
she had yielded up her preferences and
yielded mem enrlv--lor the sake nf eon-
ciliatmn and success. She had made this
sacrifice freely--cordiallyaed she would
now rally under Ihe banner of W. II. Har
risen with ihe same z-al and the same
certainly ofsuccess as with her own favorite
sun.
ftlr Cliambers ni' Pennsylvania, was nni
only willing tn support the resolution of
tho gpinlpinr.u from Maryland, hut lo do
o cordiiillv and with all his heart. He
was ready lo rally under tho banner of W.
11. Harrison, ami support that banner with
all the influence that God and nuturo had
given bun,
ftlr, Simmons of Rhode Llond said in
behalf of himself and his delegation, Hint
though lasi lo yield their preferences, ihey
would be unionjj the first to respond to tho
nominal inn.
ftlr Vosonfftlaino warmly responded to
tho noiiiin.tt,iun.
Jndgo Burnett of Ohio next addressed
Ihu Convention nt soma lengih. Altera
brici eulogy of Mr Cloy, ho referred to
ihe early ht-tory of Gen. Harri-on, and
his mi male ncq niiutauce with htm, and
testified in the high e-tiunl tun in which
he wn held by all who knew him. He
condoled bv recommending Ihe unfurling
the Union P.ng, Willi the inotlu of Mr
Wish ol Virginia. "Union far Ihe mike of
Ihe Union." Do this, said he, and all will
be will.
Mr Livingston 0f n y r(S0 U(, cnm
tnpficeil his remarks by a-kiug the qnes
lion -where nni I? what has brought me
here? nid answered with the emphatic
respome, love (if Country! a wish lo see
ill'' powers that be i fTeetually prostrated,
and Ihccoun'ry redeemed from tho hands
of Ihn spoilers. He alluded In hu nld age
and leebleupcs, gating that even then he
was scarcely able to proceed. He said he
had ber n n democrat all Ins life, had noor
been oir .-I the harness. He ever had end
ever W'iild adhere to the principle that tile
majority govern. When that principle
was hist sight of there must be an end ol
the Republic.
ftlr L. briefly eulog zed the character nf
Mr Clay The winld he said would do
himjii-tice. His fame would be ndmired
by mier generations. Next lie adverted
to Ihe chirae.ter of Gen. Harrison. He
-aid ho likfd Ins diameter. He knew him
well, and nothing had been -aid ni Ins
pnu-e that, was not slrtcUy true. Ohio
he said win Id go fur hiiiy acclamation,
and he wa per-uaded from what he had

vivid picture of Marim Van Bureii, and

he wouh descend to the tomb happv and

Gov. Meicalf of Kentucky was portico
lorly haipy in his remarks. Kentucky's
fovoritf'-on, he said, h.nl lost the Humilia
tion, but had he him-ell been here, he
would hive done precisely what ihe deh
gallon from t hat 8'ate are prepared In do
-enter heartily into the support of the
nouiinaiinn. Success i-, and ever has
been his first object. The man who can
best secure that siicpcps- lo Ihe parly, is
ihe man ho would rally under so will in
friends. As regarded linn-elf, he did not
-aenfiensn much as did many other of the
friends ol ftlr Clay ; he moved only from
the side of one noble friend, to u,;e ns
stand firmly by the side nf number and no
less noble friend The country had nni
done Gen. Ilarsison jn-tice. He has done
more for his country and received less tor
his s.-rvion limn nny man livmrr. Ho pos
sessed both civil and military capacities ol
the first order, which should entitle him
lo the admira'ion of the people. Gov. ftl.
-aid he came here in lavnr of Kentucky's

been here, he had inlorehai.ged sentiments
wnh the delegates from the various Siati--.
ami had nninc lo the conclusion that he
was in xioken. He was now prepared to
go for the strongest man. and overturn the
powerful despotism under which we were
now suffering. Let not the song of dem
ocracy cheat Ihe people. He had ever
I.e. n a democrat not one of i he democrats
ol the present day he wasauold fashioned

name of democracy had cheated half Un
people out nf their senses. He here drew
a vivid picture nf the corruption uf the
present powers that be. und ihe enormities
committed under the name of democracy
Ho regarded it as his duly, he sain, t
warn the people against such denmciacy.
lie hoped, he said in coneln-inn, for in-
umnli. i'he Hunters of Kentucky' will
be found true to the great Whig party nl
i ii e union.
ftlr IJnnrdmon, of Connecticut, earnestly
supported the nomination.
Gen. Wilson.nl' New Ilompshire. was
very hanpy in his remarks. He expressed
the heliel ilial his StBle, though her pros
peels had been dark and gloomy, would
respond lothn tiniuiuallou of Harrison and
Tyler in a spirit nf enthusiasm winch
would enable her tn triumph over ihe pre
'in corrupt parly in power. He related
-everal anecdotes, and applied them very
happily. '
ftlr Hilliard, of Alabau a, said that he
rejoiced In hear the voice nf congrulohilion
sounding all rnuiid htm, and that be enter
tamed the same put nut in feelings as the
gentleman v.hu preceded him His own
preferences, he said, hail been ardent for
Clay, bul he would siond or loll with the
nominee of this Convention. He was re
solved to sacrifice and risk every Hung fur
the good of the cause; and he fell assured
that the delegates would all go home with
an account of their proceeding, that will
impart a corresponding enlhasiasiii in the
bosoms of Iheir constituents.
Mr Merrill, uf Penn-ylvaina. supported
the re-olulion in a lew excellent remarks.
Mr Tiippor, nf Mississippi, sun! that the
.Mississippi delegation had cast the vote of
thai Stale for II. Clay, and perhaps the
Whigs of ihe Sinie will be disappointed in
Ihe result of our deliberations; bin they will
go for the uouiinee ofihisCouveiilinni and
ihn land nf Pumdexter nnd Preuliss, as she
has dune before, will do hur duly ulill ; unci
from Ihe hariuuny of tins Convention, and
the enthusiasm manifested by the members,
he fell sati-lied she can bo rescued from
ihe spoilers under thu banner ol tho Hero
ul ripiieeanoci.
ftlr Whitehead, of New Jersey, said he
too had had his first choice. Ho had been
over. ruled by the majority, hul he did not
complain; and would cheerfully abide by
tho decision of the Convention. The
nominee had onco before received tho vote
of Now Jersey, and was assured he would
do so again.
Mr Riissel, of ftli-snuri, comm"iiced his
remarks by slating thnt ho came from the
State of the great rxpungcr. Dark cloud-
hod long lowered ever that Slates but light
H now breaking thruvgh them. There are
siill some green spots on which ihe cvo

been selected, but we leave htm to the
lip nils of his country, with the wrpaih of

The Whigs of Missouri, said Mr R , will
support Ihe nominee of this Conveultoo.
Gen. Harrison, nnd tflheir ilect-ton should
I'nll in the latter, Ihey will hope to b. re
joiced by the shout of victory from their
sister hiatus.
There ore considerations in Missouri
that make Ihe name of Gen. Harrison a
lower of strength, lie is rich mi the nfi'ec
lions of his cnonlryuiPii, and the Wlns ol
Missouri will do their best will die in the
last ditch.
ftlr Graham, of Louisiana, said that he
and the Whig.- of the State ho represented '
had Iheir just ehnice. lint their prayers
will be offered up for the success of the
ticket.
ftlr Newtnn nf Virginia, snid that the
Slate which had Ihe honor lo be the birth
place of ihe first savior of his country, will
prove lo he the birlh-p'oco of Ihe second
savior of Ins muinlrv. He said the chnrae
lei of Gen. Harrison i now much tnis-un.
derstood. and when better understood will
be better appreciated.
Judge Huntington, of Iridium said that
thai slate lias been whig and is whig to
ihe core. He was ccrlnin she would give
Gen H.irri-on a Lrge majority in l(j.0
lie himself te.-uled til Pud Harrison, and
he knew there was tin man there who nip
purled the general in V,1G. when the stale
gave htm fiOOO majority, who would not
do so again.
The Judge referred to the course of Gen
II. tn Congress in relerence lo Ihe public
lands and the early settlers, who instead of
an enemy as they feared, found him their
best friend, He al-o referred lo thedcclor
niton of Col. R. ftl. Johnson, thai Gen.
Harrison has fought more battles than any
man in tho country, and "never lost a bat
tle." The Judge said he was sure he never
will lo-e n battle, and that his nomination
will be received in the Wei with a burst
of enthusiasm never before known in ihe
country.

Mr R. W. Leigh opposed the motion,
believing no uddre.-s necessary. He said
he should bo in favor of leaving the nnmi
