If this should turn out to be the case, then the future .movements of ihe Barnburners wilt bt- full of importance. "Th-y cannot fupfcrt Cass withoutstultifying themselves, without sacri ficing the principles on' which they have or ganized their party, and without- precipitately abandoning every position they have heretofore taken and for which tbej have in Numerous speeches, resolutions, and published addresses noses, theirdearly cherished principles.' their consciences, and their patriotic duties. They have cone so far that they cannot return into the bosom of the Locofoco party without sac- rißeing their consistency as politicians and their characters as men. . Before leaving the city of New York for the Baltimore convention the Barnburner delegates held a meeting to decide on the conduct they should pursue. The New York Globe, their organ, at that time announced, that, m the vnt nl tmfU mniinntnir ha nnu han pened, the Barnburners would indue time nominate their own candidate for President and Vice President and make all necessary ef- ions to secure to mem tne votes oi tue wuinoi Proviso Democrats in other States. We pre sume this announcement was made by author ity, aud is therefore to be received as th latest proclamation of the course the Barnburners mean to adopt. At the close of the recent session of the New York Legislature, the Barnburners issued a longaauress totne locoiocos oi me um tea States, in which they dei lared thev would hold themselves aloof from the party, if the Balti- more convention nominated acandidate hostile q to tne uiimoi proviso, iney iarmr aeciareu q they would not sustain such a nomination, q even if they should be convinced that the q Whigs would triumph by their persisting in n their course.

They therefore preferred that the. party n should be defeated in the presidential election q mis year, rainer man mal n snouia succeed in q electing a man known to be opposed to the 0 proviso. General Cass is such a man, and it n now remains to be en whether the Barnbur- n ners have as much facility in devoring and q irampiing on meir principles as some otner q portions of the Loco focos have heretofore ex- q hibited,or whether they have that iudepen- n dense of soul of which they have boasted so n I loud and so often.

But this modern Democrat was once of that old Federal school so much reviled as the raw head and bloody bones of olden time. We have it upon good authority, and shall prove it, too, for the edification of the Democracy; that he even wore the federal cockactle, black as ink, the conspicuous emblem of those dyed in the wool, in the school of federalism.

If those who have made this nomination, and those for whom it is made, are satisfied with it we refer particularly to the nomina- ,i f. ih P;.rtli. Whi. ihrmiohrmi the country, we presume, are well satisfied trto. If the belection ol a competitor had been left 10 them they would most probably, in the exercise of a wise discretion, have chosen Gen. Cass- a-genlleman of- amiable-weakness, of pliable consistency, and the representative of nothing in particular save a cumbersome acti vity in self-accommodation to the probable va rra lions of the political compass. He has ob tained the reward of much labor in securing ihe nomination of his party; if the honor be au empty one, jtwill be the more commensurate with his deserts;"and be may enjoy it while it he is fully paid for all that he has ever done politi cally worthy of reward. The country will take care that the public interests shall not suffer by any such work of supererogation as his election to the Presidency would be. He is not the man for these times. From the National Intelligencer. In nominating Mr. Cas, it must be admit ted that the convention have selected for their candidate a gentleman of talents, of respecta bilitv, and of exemplary personal character. These worthy traits, however, are wofully counterpoised by the wild and disorganizing views and principles which he has of late avowed and advocated, and which, if they ever obtain a firm footing and ascendancy in the councils of this nation, will, if they do not make absolute shipwreck of this glorious Union, prove as disastrous to the hop and objects of the venented founders of this gov ernment, as we trust the issue of the election will prove to the hopes of those who have placed Gen. Cass iu the field. Speakinq Out The Democratic Review, for May, in an able article, condemns the vio lence displayed by soma of its friends in Con gress, during the late debate upon the slave question, It thus speaks of Mr. Calhoun and Foote: We mourn over the weakness of human reason, when we see a man like Mr. Calhoun, of advanced age, long experience, and towering intellect, give himself up, in the (ace of his country and the wcrld, to all the childish ex cesses of unbridled past-ion. It is just this de fect of his character that destroyed his career which has made him unserviceable to his country, an injury to his party, and useless to his aje. How is it possible to respect a man who forgets himself, and the body he should adorn, by couduct and words we could only expect in a maniac or common driveller. The question of slavery is the rock on which Mr. Calhoun has constantly split, instead of being, as with a statesman of any address or real pa triotism it would hive ben, a stepping stone to the highest farce and loftiest preferment. We shall not waste a word on the disgusting rant of Foote, of Mississippi, who proclaimed his ferocious aspirations after a hangman's job. whose functions he n evidently better fitted to perform than those of a Senator. We protest in the nam- of the honorable body to which he belongs, of the noble State whose dignity he has lowered, and of our common country which a I 1 1 he disgraces, against language and sentiments which the most abandoned leader of a street njob would hesitate in this country to utter. but which this s nseless demagogue hoped would procure him notoriety. We are eure that Mr, Calhoun must blush to be found a moment in such company."
