I take this method of informing the citizens of In diana generally, and especially those who were pres ent and witnessed the scene, that i iiomas D. V al pole, the Senator from Ihe county HmicocI;, did, on the 10th instant, in debate and on the floor of the Snate in hi representative capacity, make an un warrantable, unjustifiable and ungentlemanly attack upon my public and private character, all of which I pronounce as filse as the man who made it. For the rectitude of my conduct on that as on all oth-r occa sions, 1 leave the public to judge. It w as (to say the least of it) a mean, cowardly attack, which no gen tleman would make, especi illv wiieo the accused had no chance of defence. I am fully impressed with the belief that na mm in the Legislat.ne, or that I ever knew, but the Senator from Hancock, would have itooped 8'J low to hnvc accomplished go little. The man is not so much' ft n object of contempt ns of pity. I will here say, it is n sufficient refutation for the public to know, that it came from one Thoma I). Wul pole.

This convention, called for the purpose of nominat ing "free soil" candidates f ,r Governor nnd Lt. Gov ernor, met at the State Hon c on the It was a small gathering, but, ns one of ihe speakers said, perhaps we should not despise the d of small tilings." But little was done during the forenoon and after noon sessions except to discuss a : -reposition made by the Hon. John H. Brnlley, the fre: soil presiden tial elector of the 5th congressional district in the late presidential election. Mr. Bradley's proposition was that no nominations of free soil candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor should be made; but that a resolution should be passed, declaring in favor of Embree and Stnnfield, the Whig candidates. This proposition, in effect, c mtcmplited nothing more nor less than a disband ing of the free soil party as a Stateorganization, and to transfer it "body and boots," (as one of the mem bers from Ripley county said,) to the Whigs, so far as the ISiaie government was concerned. Mr. Bradley enforced hi proposition with all that specious eloquence, for which lie is distinguished. At the outset, he declared that f r the sake of prin ciple, be had cut loose the bonds which had bereto fore hound him to party : and affirmed that it wrs Useless, and even folly, for the free soilers to expect to gain anything by fdlowiug the examples of the old and corrupt whig nnd democratic parties. He maintained that they would the more certainly ensure the success of their principles, if they would trans fer their strength to the wiiij candidates for Govr n r and Lt. Governor ; and then to maintain an inde pendent attitude, in the congressioml districts, and throw their votes in fivor of either the whig or dem ocratic candidates for Congress, according to the tie goe of their professed anli-slavery opinions. Mr. Ellsworth, Mr. Butler, and others, combatted the proposition of Mr. Bradley very successfully. They desired that the moral victor, wliirli the fiee s oilers had already gained, w is a fu' r -componse for their pas' rllort, anl n sufficient inducement for litem to perpetuate their organization n n distinct party. We regret that we have not opportunity now to al lude to the strong points of their arguments. We will endeavor to do so hereaficr. We are compelled to be content now by saying, that fo far as Mr. Km bree was concerned, Mr. Butler showed hy the pro ceedings of the present Congress, that "Mr. Embree h-d nt boon true to his free soil professions; that though he had voted for Gott's resolution to abolish th slave trade in the District of Colnmhin, be had indirectly endeavored to destroy it afterwards. There was not n man present, except Mr. Bradley, who be lieved that they could trust .Mr. Embree any more safely than Mr. Wright. Finally, Mr. Brndtey proposition was defeated, no man save himself voting for it, and the conven tion adjourned till evening. In the evening, the committee appointed for that purpose, proposed the following nominations: For Governor, James H. Cravens, of Ripley coun ty : for Lieut. Governor, John W. Wkioiit, of Cass count v. Afier the appointment of a State Central Commit- toe, and the transaction of various other business pertaining to an efficient organization of the party, the convention whs addressed at r ime length bv Mr. Ellsworth, and hy the President of the Convention, Calvin Fletrhor, FNq. Some other gentlemen made short speeches, and l-r. Ac!; ley, by request, sang the eon "Frpe soil is coming." After which the convention adjourned, giving Ihrer? cheers for their candidates. Some of these Speeche were marked by the pirit of thorough abolitionism, which, -o far as we ran see, involves the real difference between the demo cratic party and iho f ee o.l party. The question aked by the fJovernor of Virginia, as to what the people of Ihnl State nre ; with their free colored population, i n problem which none of our statesmen, nol even Ihe wisest, of .any party, can s dvc. Do we want that pooulation to overrun us. anil to demoral ize our whites!" Certainly not, savs Mr. Ells worth: and there he slopped, the democrats are rompc led to do. Not seeing what can be done, safe ly, as to this matter, they are compelled to the con clusion, that it is better to bear with present cvila tliao to run ihe rik of encountering greater ones. Mr. Fletcher said somo sensihlo things, nnd some which people of all parlies might profit by ; but wc must pass them over at present. Boston.

IJai.l of 11 rr.ESENTATtvF.s, Jan. .3d, 18 If). Peak Sir: I last evening received your friendly letter of the 28th ult., and hasten to reply. I feel, ns I ought, very deeply the obligations I am under to you, nnd numerous others of my constituents who have lately expressed a w:h ;hat I should nsmin be the standard-bearer of Democracy in our Congres sional District, and feel that it is time for meto moke : some response to the oiany letters, of n like tenor, I which I li.iv lately received. When I engaged in j the service of my constituency, I understood myself 'as enlisted for the war, or until honorably discharged r.s an invalid, because of incapacity from age, ill- health, or wounds suffered in hat;le, and so enden vor- ed to make myself understood, by proper modest ex pressions, on several occasions. I feel assured that mv constitnen's will not decide that I have become too t ld for their service ; for if I am not misled, hy all my own feelings and perceptions on that head, I am younger in constitution than I was ten, and evcu twenty years ago. If my health has not been con stantly improving for the last eighteen years, I tun under a sad hallucination and get fat in spite of a de cline.

Yet the export from New York alone, for Ihe year ending with No vember last, was over .;1,000)00, nearly all foreign coins, which could have been supplied only from im migrants. If we estimate that one million per annum is received in this way. there results sj7,000,000 since l?ll, nnu the supply will Iben stand as follows: On hand, per Gallatin, 1820 JstJO.000,000 12,7-11,017 8-.0!h1Gl - 27.000,000 Products of (J. S. mines Net import Immigrant pupplies Quantity in the United States 1")1,S.10S It may now be inferred that a supply approaching this sum, derived from the California mines, will pro duce some disturbance in the exchanges. It will op erate suddenly, as the Mexican mines did gradually upon values in Europe. The first effect will be spec ulation ond a rie in prices, nnd good flow here to obtain the cheap gold. This will be what is called unfavorable exchange, and this will continue until the gold finds its level throughout the commercial world, even to the remotest corners of Asia the country which is the richest giving the most for the metal. The industrial wealth of the whole world will come here, nut in motion bv ihe gold attraction. It must then result, that gold being produced much cheaper in California than elsewhere, all other gold mines, except perhaps, those or Russia, wnicli pro duce sVJO.OOO.OOO per annum, will cease to be work ed, and the supply by so much diminished, and llie boarding in Europe and Asia facilitated, further to nbsorbthc supply. Before the discovery of the Amer ican mines, ihe value of fine gold lo line silver was ten to one; thai is to say, one ounce of fine gold wns worth ten of silver. As the silver flowed from Amer ica faster than gold, its price fell, until in 1000 it was one to fourteen and finally, at llie establishment of our oint in 170'i, fifteen ounces of silver were found worth one of gold. Thin continued until, in 1S:U, it was fumd that the vahie of gold as compared wiih silver bad furl her advanced, and, by the gold bill of thai year, it wan taken to bo 10 .21." silver to 1 of gold. This was valuing the gold too high, ond the net of lSoii reduced ii lo 15.033 to 1. It is now evident that iho joint operation of the California and Russian mines may be lo sink the value of gold, ns compared to silver, to where it was before the discovery of America say one to ten, and to sink the value of both metals In the general mar kets.
