nrc disappointed. The main body of the
Democratic party of New York have resolved
to adopt no platform but tlie ancient
one of the nartv. embodied in the
resolutions of tlic Baltimore 6Yonv ntion.
These resolutions hold to the doctrine
of non-intervention?denying the right of
Conorres.s to legislate on slavery, leuvmcr

the hands of the peoplftwirhcn organizing

on this subject are us follows:
"1. It is not questioned or disputed
that Congross has the power over slavery

Z. It is not questioned or disputed
that Congress docs not possess the power
ovor slavery in the United ^States.
"3. The power of 6'ongress ovor slavery

is questioned ; this convention holds that
the Federal Government possess the leg

and ought to exorcise it, so as to prevent
the existence of slavery there."
Aftor tho reception of these by the
Hunkers, and a protracted discussion,
that body sent back the following to be
appended tfl^je above:
"4. Resolved, Although such arc the

prisoners wore released by Hey; at all ovonta
the throe landed in tho U. States sometime
last spring. Shortly after their arrival the
authorities at Havana having leaniod that they
were in Now Orleans, a communication was
received by tho Spanish consul at that port,
Mr. Don Carlos do Espann, enjoining him to
seize the jK)fno!i of Roy, ami send him hack to
Havana. Shortly after the consul obtains an
interview with ouo Frc8car.es, nn ex-police officer,
who declined having anything to do with
the Hcizuro. Some days after a willing hvstni
mcut is found in the person of Llorento, and
with him is associated Ogala. Llorento takes
upon himself to procuro lodgings for Key, the
friendless stranger, and introduces him to tho
Spanish consul, and his accomplice. Tho con

who had supplied him with money; but at

Mary PJlen ho is launched on l>onrd.
So far as wo arc competent to judge tho
abduction was clearly mado out by the testimony,
and the dcfbnce so fur from weakening
tho case added strength. The. Mary Ellon carried
out two passenger*, and we liavo no account
of but one being landed at Havana; and
the only inferrence n that ltey waa landed secretly.
Wo do not believe that the American
consul at Havana ever saw Key as was al
lodged, but tlmt if he taw any ono in relation
to this aflair, it was sonic creature who was
made to personify Hoy. It is said tiiat Key has
addressed two letters to our consul, faying
that he was abducted and linked protection .
and that the consul had demanded him, and the
authorities hud refused to deliver him Up. It
is now suid tha$ Commodore Parker has been
Ecnt to llavaua to dch.aud Hoy in the name of
our government. If tliis be true, and the
authorities refuse to dolivcr Key, it must necessarily
result in a difficulty between the Governments.
We regard the Spanish consul as
acting in tins whole affair as tho agent of tho
Spanish authorities, and his CSovcrnment must
bo rcHj)on-iblc for all his actd.
