New York wanted to adjourn.
Mr. Colier, of New York, came to consult

had done his best to present tho name of Tay

vote of the Convention - would meet no ob

For himself ho thought New York would
support the nomination. Tho Convention
should now proceed at once to nominate the
Vice Presideut. He had warned his Whig
brethren about his nomination and against it,
but there shall be no rebellion against the
nomination of the nominee of the Conven

Mr. Blunt of Massachusetts intended to sus

Mr. Galloway, of Ohio, obtained leave to
address the Convention he said : 1 desire to

Now, with the pledge I have given it,
it is hard for me to say what I shall do. I
will go home, 1 will say td them that if they
believe in the principles of the nominee, I
will say "amen," and stand by the nomina
tion of the Convention. There are doubts in
Ohio as to the whiggery of the numinee,
doubts cathered from hia letters and conver

are the fundamental principles in the hearts
and feelings of the people of Ohio. Mr. G

with a thrilling poetical cfudUUon from John

The ballot was as follows :
M. Fillmore, 173 ; Abbott Lawrence, 87 ;
Jnd. Sargeant, 1 ; G. Evans, 2 ; Clayton, 3.
After Mr. Fillmore had been nominated,
on a question of unanimous nomination, a
gentleman from Nnw Jorscy, Mr. McCul
lough, said in a very animated speech, that
tho free State of New Jersey had first nomi
nated General Taylor on the battle field of
. Gov. Vance, of Ohio, was sure that they
would now rescue this government and coun
try from the hands of thn spailer-i ho even
had hopes of carrying Ohio for Taylor.
Mr. Carroll, of New York, said that Gen.
Taylor surrenders to his friends lo no one
else to no enemies liko tha Whig parly,
Taylor surrenders to his friends, but never to
his foes New York will support the nomina
tion. Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, spoko a graat deal
about Whig principles, but did not mention
in what any one of them consisted. He
would have Gen. Taylor take hold of the
Whig banner of principles, and say that he
will live and die with that Whig banner
pledged to Whig principles the principles
Mr. Sherman of Ohio hoped, implored that
the Convention would not press a rrwlution
for an unanimous nomination of the candi
dates presented. Press this resolution now,
said he you cannot pass it and you will
lose the State of Ohio. Let us. said he, go
down to Independence Square, and there rati

A number of gentlemen from variousStates

dotes, exciting the laughter of the audience ;

would have done for Mr. Clay ; what they
will do for Gen. Taylor, &c.

He was about lo tell and anecdote of Gc-n.

Much has been said and written respect
ing this remarkable pair, Chang and JCng.

ments. The following extracts from an arti

'Siamese Twins.' I rode from Wilkes county
to their new residence in Surrey, &orho 40
miles, and arrived at their house the evening
of the second day, after leaving 'Trap Hill.'
On riding up to tho yard I observed the
'Twins' busily engaged in shingling a house ;
and on seeing me, they promptly approached
and requested me to 'walk In,' adding that
they would attend to my horse, and . in the

duced myself to Mrs. 'Chang,' pronounced
'Chun.' and found her to be quite a handsome
young woman, just 22. Her maiden name
was 'Adelaide Lates,' (sister of Saran ;) and
her dress and general appearance all indica
ting a degree of tidiness which Mrs. 'Eng'
lacks : indeed, the people about here all say
she is 'mighty townified.' Mrs. 'Chang' was
married on the same night of her sister, and
now has three children, viz: 'Josephine Vir
ginia,' G days younger than Mr. Eng's first,
'Christopher Wren,' 8 days younger than
Mrs. E.r8 second, and 'Nancy,1 nged only six

up their pipes, commenced pulling away at a
