National Union Convention.
A National Union OonTcntion. of tt leut
two delegate! from etch congressional dis
trict oi an ine Biaiei, two irom each Tern
tary, two from'tte District of Colombia, and
four delegate! at large from each State, will
be held at the city of Philadelphia, on the
aecond Tuesday (Uth) of Augoit next
Such delegates will bs chosen by the elec
tors of the sereral States, who sustain the
Administration in maintaining unbroken the
union of the States tinder the 'Constitution
which onr fathers established, and who
agrco In the following propositions, ill ;
The union of tho mates Is. in erenr casa.

supreme and constant, and unlrersal U) their
obligation i '.
Tne rights, the dignity anil the equality of
the States In the Union, including the right
of representation in Congress, are solemnly
guaranteed by that Constitution, to sate
which from overthrow so much blood and
treasure were expended In the late civil war;
Tliero is no richL anvwhere. to dissolve
tho Union, or to separate States from tbo
Union, either by voluntary withdrawal, by
force of arms, or by congressional action ;
neither by the secession of the States, nor by
the exclusion of their loyal and qualified
representatives, nor by the national Uovern
ment in any other form ;
Slavery ii abolished, and neither can, nor
ought to be, reestablished In any State or
Territory within our jurisdiction;
Each State has the undoubted right to pre
scribe the qualifications of Its own electors,
and no external power rightfully con, or
ought to, dictate, control, or influence the
free and voluntary action of the States in the
exercise of that right ;
Tho maintenance inviolate of the-rights of
tho States, and especially of the right of each
State to order and control its own domestlo
concerns, according to its own judgment ex
clusively, subject only to the Constitution
of the United States, is essential to that bal
ance of power on which the perfection and
endurance of our political fabric depend, and
tha overthrow of that system by the usurpa
tion and centralisation of power in Congress
would be a revolution, dangerous to repub
lican government and destructive of liberty;
Each House of Congress is made, by toe
Constitution, the sole judge oTthe elections,
returns and qualifications of its members;
but the exclusion of loyal Senators and Rep
sentatives, properly chosen and nualiflid,
under the Constitution and laws, is unjust
Every patriot should frown upon all these
acts and proceedings everywhere, which can
serve no other purpose than to rekindle tho
animosities of war, and tho effect of which
upon our moral, social and material interests
at home, and upon our standing abroad, dif
fering only in degree, is Injurious like war it
self; The purpose of the war having been to
preserve I lie Union and the Constitution by
nutting duwn the rebellion, and the rebellion
having been suppressed, all resistance to the
authority of the General Government being
at an end, and the war having ceased, war
measures should also cease, and should be
followed by measures of peaceful administra
tion, so that union, harmony and concord
may be encouraged, and industry, commerce,
anil the arts of peace revived and promoted;
and the early restoration of all the Slates to
the ciecclso of their constitutional powers In
the National Government Is Indispensably
necessary to the strength and the defence of
tne uepuDiic, ana to tne maintenance oi me
All such electors In the thirty-six Stales
and nine Territories of tho United States, and
in the District of Columbia, who in a spirit
oi patriotism ana love lor tne union, can rue
above personal and sectional considerations,
and who desire to see a truly National Union
Convention, which shall represent all the
States and Territories of the Union, assem
ble, as friends and brothers, under the nation
al flag, to hold counsel togothcr upon the state
of the Union, and to take measures to avert
possible danger from tho same, are speedily
requested to take part in tho choice of such
But no delegate will take a seat In such
Convention who does not loyally accept the

Ta A. Etttiorm attttM Kranl n Pu-f,
When an item on the aulborshln of this
song mis read from your newspaper at our
oacneior tamo toe oilier ritgnt considerable
lndiimation was manifested and a committee
was appointed to examine, the records, pre
pare a defence, and submit a report to the
editors of the Eetmng sl. As friends of
tne authoress or this beautiful song wo ask
who has pretended to settle this question in
favor of Mr. Ball; and, then, we would like to
hear what Mr, Ball's claims are !
In the Boston Pott of the 17th tillmn an.
peared an item, stating that " the widow of
I'aul Alters, toe sculptor, w hose song, 'Hock
Me to Sleep. Mother.' was so well known.
has married again, her new husband being a
.ur. Alien, oi tvosningion city.
In the same paper of the 23d this appears:
" Iba kntborea. of 'Hock Ma to Eleep, Mother,'
Is a yoang lady of Naw York, wbo has no pretest
lot.nllon of changing bar natna, a aewipaper para-
grapa ao .oe contrary ootwitoitaaoing ,.
In the Boston Tramcrivt of the 24th nlL
an article appeared, crediting Mrs. Allen, of
wasnington, witu tne song, ana in me same
paper of the 26th we find tho following:
"An ttam In a recent iiiua of your paper gave to
Iba widow erPaolAkere (wbo baa baeo lately
merrled to a Mr Allen of Weahlogton) tba erellt
of having written tbat beautiful song, "Rook Mo
to 6aep, Mother " Injuilioa to tba authoress of
Ibat placa, (Miss Alger, of Naw York,) I beg you
will maba a oorreotton. Like Iba controversy over
th. aalhorahlpof Nothing to Wear,' tbls bss been
long sine decided, and wbatarar tba privata eirelcs
of others' friends may desire, no deltas bat Miss
Alger's baa been allowed by tba pabllo."
.Tho Boston Qasette, In its Sunday issue,
"A Qosstioiv or AuTBoaintr A enrrsspondent
of tbo 7Yasvr; claims for Miss Alger, of Now
Tork, tba aalborrblp of th. song, "Ilock M. to

wbtob Is well worth a modsrale battl. to support.
Mrs. Aksrs was, noqooatlonably, tha author of It,
Is appeared In th. Portland 7ranun'jil when Mrs.
A , wo think, was ooonaotad with tbat office, and
whan tha queatlon of authorship was mooted lo
Washington soma months since, tb. editor of the
TVamcriyt sbowej us tba original manuaoript, pre
Tlons to copying for Iba press, with all Its altera,
tlons, Inlsrlloaatlons, and tranrpoeltlons, giving
indisputable evidence, we conceive, of autbovbtp t
wo, al least, shall regard It so till lbs original and
tba data of tha other la produced for comparison."
To which reply was made that "Miss Al
ger's poem was published two years beore
Mrs. Aker's," and that a view of what pur
ported to be original manuscript was not
very conclusive. evidence of authorship, since
no less shan four other parties would share
the same thing. The uaxclte writer thinks
the question "worth a moderate brittle," but
we are willing to Indulge in the biggest kind
of a fight In support of the side which we
consider that of right and justice
Now Mr. Ball, speak up 1 S ,

so many years sought to be recognized as the
legitimate daughterof King George's brother,
the Duke of Cumberland, by Olive, daughter
of Dr. James Wilmot That lady married a
Mr. Serres, but was separated from him. She
died in 1834, leaving a daugbtgr. who mar
ried a Mr. Byres, but was divorced from him.
She and her children are now the petitioners,
to have tho marriage of the Duke of Cum
berland with Olive Wilmot pronounced valid
and themselves legitimate descendants. This
repetition of married infelicity for three gen

Tho first delicate point about tho proposed
Investigation is, that four years after marry

married Lady Ann Ilorton, and, If the Wil
