The N. Y. Journal of Commerce Bays that 1
the Mormon who arrived iu the ship John J
Boyd at New York on Saturday are mostly
Dines; but among theiu are several Norwegi
ans, Italian from the Protestant valley of
Piedmont, and two Icelanders. They are stout
hesrty looking eople, with an expression ol
intelligence above that of the average Euro
peiD immigrants. The greater number are
agriculturist, though the trades are well
represented. The ship load is said to be
only the forerunner of an immense Mormon
immigration which we may look for next
spring. The emissaries from Great Salt Lake
are reported to Lave been very successful in
making proselytes in Norway, Denmark, and
Switzerland. Id Denmark alone they have
fifty travelling ministers and several hundred
local elders. They met with occasional op
position from the municipal authorities in some
places: but this, as is usually the cute has enly
served to excite the sympathy of the lower
daises in their favor. One member of the
company by the John J. lioyd was imprisoned
eight mouths and subjected to many privations
in a town of Denmark. It is estimated that
about ten thousand converts will be landed at
New York this season, mostly from the sour
ces above named.
The records of the Boston custom-house
ithow a great falling off of the trade between
that ci'y and Russia since the commencement
of the Eastern war. The statistics show that
during the quarters ending December 31 1853,
before the war, there was imported iuto Bos

$313,0-17. For the corresponding quarters in j

ani'.unted to only $88,40'J, showing a decrease
of $425,238. None of the gooda entered in
1855, were from liunsia direct, us her ports
were closed, but the whole was received thro'
England and Prussia.

the primitive idea that every iiihu that dies

On the 21st instant Mr. Cungman of North
Carolina introduced the following in the House
of Representatives :
A bill to amend and explain an art entitled
"Au act to promote the efficiency ot the navy,"
approved February 29, 1855.
This bill is a supplement totl eact establish
ing the late Naval Board and proposes to insti
tute a bourd of nine members, three ot whom to
be captains in the navy who were not members
of the late Naval Hoard, and the remainder to
be taken from civil life. Before entering upon
the discharge of their di-ties they are to take
an oath to decide all cases submitted to them
without partiality or prejudice, and to the
best of their knowledge and Judgment. The
Secretary of the Navy is to transmit to the
board a list of all the ollicers of the navy of
the several grades mentioned in the act of
February 28, 1855, of whose etticiency or
competency to discharge their duties doubts
are entertained, mentioning in each case, wheu
practicable, the cause from which this in
efficiency or incompetency is thought to arise;
and any offiaer of the uavy may also designate
to the board any other oilicer w hose ellicieucy
or competency ought in his opinion to be in
quired into. The bill is not to be construed as
authorizing the board to inquire into seciitl
offences properly cognizable by a court-mania!,
but if any such case should be submitted t
them they are required to certify the fact to
the Secretary of the Navy. The report of the
late board is to be deemed and I a ken to be
correct as regards t he ollicers included therein,
unless any such officer shall, within Jays
after the meeliug of the proposed board, ad
dress a petition to the same complaimug that
injustice has been done him by llmt report,
uud prating that it be ameuded in I is favor,
io w hich case said board are required to ex
amine the case of such officer in the same
manner as if it bad never been acted on. It
uKn examination tt.e board shall beofopinion
that the recommendation of the original In ai d
was correct then they are so to declare, and
the said recommendation is to remain iu full
force; provided, however, that nothing in this
act or "ths one to which it is a supplement
ehall be construed as expressing it as the neiise
of Congress that the Pi eeideiit ought to place
any officer on the reserved list against his will
on the ground that he is disqualified by old
age for tctive service, if iu the opiniou of the
President such officer has rendered distinguish
ed or meritorious services, such as ought to
exempt him from the oeration of this law, and
Is still capable ot performing efficiently other
important duties If, on the contrary, a ma
jority of said board shall think that the
recommendation of the first board was
erroneous, they shall so declare, and shall re
commend either that said oilicer be reinstated
On the service list or on a different reserved
list from that on which the first board had
recommended bim to be plaovd, a to them
may seem just and proper; and said origiual
reooinmeridation shall be considered of no
avail." Each officer whose ce is brought
before the board is to be notified ol I be tact
that his tiiciency will be inquired iuto and of
the grounds on which it is questioned; and
may, if he sees fit, answer the charge in writ
iug, and offer on bis word of houor each
explanations as hs may deviu projxr. If the
board are satisfied with such explanations,
thsy are so to declare; if not, tl ey are to pro
ceed to investigate the cue. The Secretary
of the Navy is to afford the boaid all the in
formation and assistance in his power; the
President is authorized to appoint a judge
advocate; the sittings of the board are to be
public, and they are to make a separate and
distinct recommendation in each case, seiliti'
forth the grouudson which it is hnsed the
recommendation in each case, together w ith
the evidence and dicuments relating thereto,
to be immediately trans rilted to the Secetary

for the nomination, and he was the
candidate of her delegation unanimously in
the Convention which nominated him on
Monday ; and she will attest her apprecia
tion of him by casting her electoral vote
for the American ticket in November next
by a majority of thousands. . Had we no
other index of such a result than the ex
ultant expression of American countenan
ces in this city yesterday, it surely was
enough. Congratulations and rejoicings
were the order of the day. The disorderly
proceedings of a few factious Northern fa
natics, which threatened the disruption of
the Convention, had plunged oar friends in
doubt, and not a few felt misgivings as to
the result. They knew the fearful extent
of the anti-slavery feeling which the reck
lessness and imbecility of the Administra
tion had aroused among the Northern peo
ple. They were afraid that the delegates
from that section had entered the Conven
tion with the determination to force upon
it such measures as would have certainly
rent it asunder, and scattered the party
and its hopes to the winds. They breath
ed freer when they found that moderate
National men from both sections by a
large majority, had agreed to recognize the
rights of the Southern people in the Terri
tories, and whilst earnestly deprecating the
agitation of threatening sectioual ques
tions, had, by a majority of two to one,
sustained the Kansas-Nebraska legislation,
and refused to declare in favor of the res
toration of the Missouri restriction line.
These were satisfying evidences that a
sense of justice, that the Constitution and
Nationalism had triumphed iu the Conven
tion. But the crowning act which attests
the National, Conservative, Union senti
ment of the Convention, was the nomina
tion for the highest offices in the Govern
ment, of two 6uch distinguished represen
tatives of that sentiment as Millard Fill
more and Andrew J. Dokelson.
Had the Convention given no other ex
pression of principle than their endorsement
of the public course of these two men, it
would have satisfied us, and every other
man, that the tone of the Convention, rep
resenting the great American party in
States of every section, was attuned to a
a high, noble and patriotic pitch. The sen
timent that is impersonated ia Millard
Fillmore, is attachment to the Constitu
tion, and a conservative policy in the ad
ministration of the Government. It is
that sentiment which governed his adminis
tration and brought it nearer to the Wash
itigtonian standard than it had been since
the days of the Fathers of the Republic.
It is that sentiment which has been the
guiding star of our distinguished fellow-citizen,
Andrew J. Doxelson, in all his pub
lic life. He caught it wheu sitting at the
feet of his great Gamaliel, the peerless
patriot of the Hermitage, Andew Jack
on. It is that sentiment which inspired him
to rise iu his seat iu the Southern Conven
tion iu this city, and iu the teeth of plot
ting traitors to denounce their proceedings
as "unhallowed." It is that sentiment
which swells above all others iu the breasts
of the American people and which will
surely carry iti two worthy representatives
into the high seats which their virtues and
services have won for them. It is the pre
dominance of that Bcntimeut which sparkles
in the face of the Americans of our city,
aud warmed their hearts as from mouth to
mouth the intelligence of the nominations
was transmittted. We cannot doubt that
the same enthusiam will be manifested
throughout this State and the whole coun
try. Let our friends meet in convention
everywhere and ratify the nominations.
The metropolis will put the ball iu motion
on Monday night. Let our friends see that
it is kept rolling.
The r'rrV and American of yesterday,
in an article on the American National
Council, says :
"The North triumphed in the admission of
the anti-twelfth section delejrntes from Penn
sylvania, and in thi rewinding tf On twtflh
tec t ion. "
The twelfth section was not rescinded by
the Council. A proposition to that effect
I was made, but it did not prevail. Ve wish
our readers to bear this fact in tr.ind. The
reporters for the N. Y. Tribune and N. Y.
Kiprttt, iu their reports of the proceedings
of the Couveution, agree upon this point.
The following is a succinct and distinct
statement of the facts :
On the 20th inst., Mr. Chaunwy Burr,
of New York, moved for the apjointrntnt
of a committee of one from each State, to
report business for the Council.
Mr. Brewster, of Massachusetts, there
upon submitted the following proposition as
& substitute for Mr. Burrs :
Whereas, The twelfth section of the ilal
form adopted by the National Council ia Jane,
1655, vw neither proposed by the South nor
sanctioned by the North, therefore said section
is hereby strkkeo out.
Mr. Elv, of Maasarhnaett, proposed to add,
and Mr. Brewster accepted, the words
"That as regard the support of slavery, we
abide by the principlee ana provisions W the
Constitution of the United States, yielding co
oiore, and claiming ao Uea,"
Considerable dixctuuioa followed, but
finally a rote was lad, tod the Brewster
aad Klj propoisUioa 8 substituted for
that of : Mr. Barr." Those . familiar with
parliamentary rules kuow that this action
was" not conclusive, was not an adoption of
the obnoxious Brewster and Ely proposi
tion,, but simply brought it directly before
the Council for consideration.. Southern
men aware of this, at this stage of the pro
ceedings, moved to adjourn ; Others threat
ened, if the proposition was adopted, to
secede. Great confusion " ensued, in the
midst of which a motion for adjournment
carried. At night, the Southern men held
a caucus and agreed, if the proposition
carried, to abandon the Council, and call
a Convention of all National men at a later
day. The next morning, the Brewster and
Ely rescinding proposition came up, and
was debated till 12 o'clock ; after which,
a motion to reconsider the. vote substituting it
for Mr. Burr's proposition, was carried. The
effect of this vote was to bring the Coun
cil back upon the motion to substitute the
former for the latter ; and then, on motion
of Mr. Dancnhower, the Brewster and Ely
proposition vas laid on the talk. This was
the last of that proposition. It was never
brought up again, but was permitted to
sleep its last sleep on the table. No other
proposition to rescind the twelfth section
was entertained by the Council. So soon
as the Brewster and Ely proposition was
laid upon the table, the new platform was
adopted in lieu of the platform of last June,
and the Council adjourned. The N Y.
Tribune's reporter confesses that the North
was " defeated, v that its " side was badly
engiueered in the fight on the platform."
SQyTAe Black-Republican or Nrgro-Wor-shippers
Convention which met in Pittsburg
on the 22nd inst., was attended by F. P.
Blair, Preston King, and Jaeob Brinker
hoff, former leaders of the Democratic par
ty. Blair was Gen. Jackson's "right bow
er," the famous editor of the Globe; King
was Van Buren's chief exponent ; and Briu
kerhoff, was one of the most substantial of
the Ohio Democracy. We noted a few'
days ago that John M. Niles, ex-Senator,
and former democratic Post-Master General,
and Gideon Wells, "father of tlu democra
cy of Connecticut" had joined the negro-wor
shippers in that State, v erily the democ
racy had better be looking aftcYv their
National American Council.''
We continue the record of the proceed
ings of the National Council.
On the 20th, President Bartlett ap
peared and took his seat as presiding oflTcer.
Mr. Burr, of New York, proposed that a commit
tee of one from each State be appointed to report
what, if any, business war be submitted to tiie
Mr. A. O. Brewster, of Masfscliugetts, offered
the following resolution as a substitute for that of
Whereas, The twelfth secti n of the pint form
adopted by the Am-rican Council iu June, 18i5,
was neither proposed by the South nor sanctioned
by the North therefore, said section is herebv
stricken out; aud that this declaration be inserted,
"That, as regard the subject of slavery, we abide
by the principles and provisions of the Constitution
of the United States, yieldiug nothing more aud
claiming nothing less."
The latter clause was secrpted by the mover.
upon the motion of a member (Mr. Ely,) to add it as
an ameudtment, and we therefore give it entire, as
the resolution of Mr. Brewster.
The subject of admitting upon the floor the mem
hers of the Nominating Convention, which will
commence its session on Friday, wss interposed,
and Dually agreed to, ss well also to admit ths re
porters of the public press, and gentlemen who ad
hered to the State Council of Pennsylvania, known
as the National State Council, of which Mr. JJun
sicker was President.
Mr. Brewster then took the floor on the conside
ration of his resolution, snd spoke earnestly, at
length, upon the necessity of settling the disagree
ments and difficulties that have arisen out of the
1 2th section of the National Platform which he
believed could be done by the adoption of Ids reso
lution. He deprecated delsy, and appealed to the
Convention to act prompt r,
Mr. Underwood, from Kentucky, sugeected that,
before acting upon the question before the House,
the mode of taking the sense of the body should be
settled upon; and proposed that the votes of each
State should be taken and counted equal to its rep
rentation ia the Federal Legislature.
Mr. Brewster was not disposed to yield the con
sideration of his resolution, and warmly urged that
it should be acted upon at once.
A motion was then made to suspend the conside
ration of the resolution before the Council, for the
purpose of taking ac.ion upon a resolution offered
by a delegate from New York, which was io accor
dance with the suggestion of Mr. Underwood, to
fix the ratio of voles of each Stste delegation to
correspond with the representation of each State in
the National Legislature.
Considerable difference of opinion prevailed ss
to the point of time for the introduction of a reso'
lution of this effect, some being- extremely anxious
to press the consideration of Mr. Brewster's reso
lution st once, while others wanted it deferred until
the mode of voting thereon was decided upon.
The previous question was called snd sustained,
and the question on the motion to suspend the con
sideration of ths resolution was taken by yeas aud
nays, snd earned.
The question beirg settlod to vote by States ac
cording to their Federal representation, the resolu
tion of Mr. Brewster wss again lakeu up and con
sidered. A number of the Northern delegates, iu
succession, obtained the floor, snd spoke iu advo
cacy of the adoption of lbs resolution; the Southern
members, in several iustances, yielding when enti
tled to the floor. Two or three members proposed
substitutes for the entire platform, and one or two
propositions were submitted, which were not press
ed st the time. Finally, the previous question was
called and sustained, and Mr. Brewster's resolution
sdopud in lieu of Mr. Burr's yeas 104, says 65
Upoe the announcement of the vote, a feeling of
strong dissatisfaction was manifested by the South
ern members, and motions made to adjourn tint Jit.
Several delegates desired to speak, sud a number
of them, indisposed and determined not to adjourn
tint di, expressed an anxiety that their Southern
fiieuds shoulJ have aa oppuitunity of being beard
upon the floor.
Notwitbatanding there wss no motion before the
Ilou-e, several members from the North addressed
ths body, and slito a member from the South. Du
ring this time, ths feeling wss intense. Mr. Bote
1st of Virginia, spoke earnestly and feelingly upon
the issue that be conceived had been made between
the North and the South, io the vote just taken,
and announced the certain separation of the two
sections. He deplored the condition of Udngs, but
said there was no alternative but that of a division
upon thU question, if the Northern members would
not yield to lot the question rest as fixed by the
Ns'.ioual Platform of 1655.
He moved an adjournment sins dU.
This was reapoude l to by a number of Southern
delegates, and a strong feeling of separation upon
the issue was manlfeat. The motion, bowever, was
withdrawn by biro upon request, and a number of
suggestions from various quattera, aud some half
dosen speeches and appeals for conciliation and
uuity of sentiment and action were made.
Governor Call obtaining the floor for lh purpose,
aa he said, of making a otoliea, addressed the con
lis spoke earnestly against the course pursued
by the Northern delegations, and dsvply regretted
the position of sfTairs. lie, bowever, had hope
that a belter feeling might be induced and wUer
eounels prevail; and after speaking eloquently
upon ibe value of our insuiuiioos, of the perpctu

people of the country, he suoved that the Couixil

Mr. E. then read from the Washington Org of
the 15th February, the following platform which
was originally adopted at a meeting of the Chief
Council of the American parly for the District of
Columbia, composed of delegates from the subordi
nate coancils of said District, by whom it was re-
commended to the National aod State Couucils of

AMERICAS PLATTORU OF rai5CIFLE3.
At a meeting of the Chief Council of the Ameri

to all other laws as rules of political sction.
6ch. The unqualified recognition and maintenance
of the reserved rights of the several State?, snd the

petiully as shown in removing "American" (by

places; as shown in a truckling subserviency to the

prevent disastrous consequences otherwise re
tailing there from, we would build up the "Ameri
can party" upon the principles herein before stated,
eschewing all sectional quet!ons, and uniting upon
those purely nsliousl, aud admitting into suid party
all American citizens, (ref. rred to in the 3J. 4th,

priuciples embraced in our platform.
ROW IT WAS RECEIVED.
After the reading of the new platform there was
loud applause, and a proposition was made to have
five hundred copies printed for the use of the dele
gates. Without the question having been put upon
Mr. Ready, of Tenn., took the floor and made a
speech upon the resolution of Mr. Brewster to re
peal the I2th section. .
He was for harmony and nnion. There were
thing in the 12th section thai he thought unwine;
he was not tenacious for the section, yet he would
not say that it wss improper. The section was the
great hope of the American party in the South; de
stroy it, and put nothing in its place, and the friends
of the cause in that section must despair of success.
It was necessary to make some enunciation of the
construction by the party of the Constitution of the
United States; nothing short of some such declsra
lion would calm the fears of the South.
Mr. Ready contained his speech st great length.
He contended strongly for the right of the people
of the new territories to decide for themselves the
question of the character of their domestic institu
tions. It was moved thst the vote of y ester lay, calling
for the previous questions on Mr. Brewster's reso
lution of repeal, be reconsidered, snd the syes snd
nsys b taken upon the subject.
Mr. Edie moved to lay tho motion to reconsider

The question to reconsider was then before the
Council. Several points of order were raised. Great
confusion. Several delegates were upon the floor
Mr. Sheets, of Ind., then proceeded to dirus
the motion to reconsider the vole r -quiring the
previous question. He was opposed to it, a it
would re-open the whole debate, that ihe previous
quetion was designed to cut off.
A call was made for the previous question on the
vote to reconsider. Carried.
On the motion to reconsider, the ayes snd nays
The result was ss follows: ayes 97, nsys 87.
When it was announced there was some appUuse.
The taking of the vote occupied much time, as
many of the delegates gave very full reasons for
ths votes they cast. Mr. Breckeoridge of Mo., took
advantage of the opportuuilv to make a regular set
speech when his nsme ess called.
The effect of the vote wss the re opening of the
debate ou the resolution to strike out the 12th sec
lion of the platform.
After much confusion, a motion to reconsider the
previous q'ieon of yesterday prevailed.
A motion was made by Mr. Danenhower that the
orig'nal resolution offered by Mr. Burr, yesterday,
and the substitute of Mr. Brewster be laid upoo the
. Upon the motion of Mr. Danenhower the ayes
and nays were called. The motion was carried.
Ayes 111. noes 72.
R. M. Corwine of Ohio, moved that ths following
be substituted in place of the 6ih section of the
proposed platform :
"The unqualified, recognittoo and maintenance
of the reserved rights ol ibe several States, and
the cultivation of harmony and fraternal good will
between the citizens of the several Slates, aud the
preservation alike of public and private trust aad
faith, and to this end, we declare, as a cardinal prin
ciple of our pUdorm, that the repeal of the Mis
oeri Compromise was ae infraction of the plighud
fsiUi of ibe nation, and thst it ehovlj be rurd,
and if effort to that end should fail, Coogrtta
should refuse to admit into the Union say State
tolerating slavery which sbsU be fotmed out of any
portion of the territory from which that iustitaUoa
was excluded by the compromise,"
It was decided by the Chair that the motion te
amend the proposed platform, by Cor win a, of Ohio

Mr. Danenbowtr, of XHIaola, rose sod beja to
?ea', when, after several iatetniptions, 5fr. ipo
Mr, ti Ohio, atate4 tfce Nona wished to coaio to
a test vote, and they did not ' desire to Oe heard
epoa the matter now before tbe council.' "
Mr. Danenhower thenr said he would take the
gentleman at bis word and move the previous ques
tion, which was sustained by the House.
Mr. Perkins,' of Coun, moved that the question be
divided. , . .
Mr. Danenhower stated that he proposed so to
do.- The vote was then taken on the motion to
rescind the old platform; ayes 138; noes, 51.
A motion wss mnde to introduce an amendment
to the proposed new platform, but the Chair ruled
the motion out of order, as the previous questioa
bad been demanded. The member appealed from
this decision, but his sppeal was laid on the table.

Oh! couidjt thou know fie thousand fears
Tt.t chill my avcret amil,
Wben thou art far away those tears
That mock my weak ccn rol;
Th'iu would'tt Dot chide me, bat Io baste
The rushing river's foam,
The city's throes;, ths woodland waste,

At nipht I hear the wild wind cry,
And fret tbe naked bough;

"Dues darling nvss me now?"
Ah, yen! I know where'er thou art,
Thou'rt thinking still of me,
And t'ten I aoolbe my anxious heart
Pj dreaming sweet of thee.
Then hasten back, for wheresoe'er

Thu'it find no love thy 1 fe to cheer
Like hert who waits at honv-I
