Toe Harmonious Democracy Comi ty CoBrentiou-The Lawycm Ostra cised. j At 2 o'clock ou Saturday afternoon the unterrilied Democracy of old Vanderburgh ; assembled iu Mai Convent ion at the Court j House, to appoint delegates to the Princeton Congressional Convcutiou, and tc take into consideration the iuteretit of the afflicted party. Alter considerable drumming and coat-pulling by the shcrilT, court hailing and government officials, forty or fifty per sons, on a libera! estimate, were got togeth er to act for the Democracy of the county. It was stated bv a country member, who appeared exercised lest Pigeon Township . hould mouoiK)lize the Convention, that only thro towoshiua were represented. The sheriff, his deputies, wort baiktb, aud the court house clique generally, occupied the lodv of thelar on the t.UUorm - and the liouy ol inc t,ar on luc plniiorm , ana mc Post office, Marine Hospital, and Custom House officials took tbe lower seats i.i tbe BvttMiMroe. emblematic, we sum.ose. of the tetupotury asceudancy of the Douglasites over the Admiuistraiiotiists. The sheriff I was the most tgkitnt man by all odds iu the assembly, and of course be should be. Wasn't it he. who immortalized himself thirty, forty, fifty times, in the late harmo nious National Convention by casting the vole of the whole sovereign State of the Hooeiars tor the Little Giant ? And why should he not show the unsophisticated De- mocracy of Vanderburgh how a convention should lie conducted T He did his part admi rably and in real Democratic Convention style. Delegates were appointed to Princeton, Ite county organisation was being perfected liarmouiously, and the sheriff was conducting The exercises with great unction, when, in an sjviI hour, a rf iolutiou was thrown into the ... ., . .... . s:onvention, wlm b in the end had Ihe effect if sfirriog up the embers of private and ) toll t tea I enntily, ami creating amusement a ' oatsitte aadieAce, whirh is always oae if the things guaranteed by Democratic Conventions. l.ouis C.

Iu tbe twinkling of an eye objection was made by half a doaea, but tbe RHN fortho ptijecllon was not apparent to the Huiuitiated, until, upon being pressed, the objectors stated that Mr. Lewis find sijfitfd the call for Jatlge Pitcher, and aras, thereftiif, not " suitable " for the position.

Mr. Raleigh, after some trouble, got a res olution through recommending 'Squire Stiuson for Judge, atid Mr. Shaukliu tacked on Mr. Lewis's name for Prosecutor, pledg- ing Mr. Lewis to support the nominee for Judge. This brought Mr. Lewis on to the bland. lie withdrew his uame from the Convention, lie authorized no one to make such a pledge for him. lie sigued the letter to Judge Pitcher after every lawyer iu the District, who was competent or the office, had agreed to support him, and he would stand "J " l'-"g- " "- " and ratified it iu his nafecse, that he would : nvr again vote for an incompetent Judge. 1... u : . . i .. i i t i i .1. j IIe would uot "bUia the notuination by de- 1U0Q. it me party aamned htm tar thu ' ct, young though be was, he could stand it. , T . ,, . , . , Mr. Deuby was called out by a remark of tlje Sheriff, aud made the speech of the day.

Mr. Barksdale replied, if this decision was right, action ou any bill could not be concluded. Mr. Grow said there were fifteen or twenty thousand persons iu Idaho, and ar gued that if the general government has power to acquire territory, it is its duty to make arrangements by which settlers can be protected by an established government. This bill was the most mysterious one of the series. Mr. Clark of Mo. said every foot of Idaho , is vrithiii the organised territories of (Hah. j MIWW- Ca spose hi rvtr cd rtebiU saying Pike's Ppak is nearly sis hundred miles from tbe j,, of- KaHSUS aIld tLe tuere j now have their own provisional government ; m urasnw oi exisung law. uo conirovert- ed Mr. Thayer's views about territorial ju risdictiou aud hinted that the latter was not sound in the Republican party faith. Mr. Houston charged partisan motives on those who supported the scries of territorial measures, and moved to table the Idaho bill. Carried by 91 against 78. The House then went into committee of the whole on territorial business. Several bills passed, including those providing for the building of roads in tbe territories of Waf hing'on and New Mexico. Adjourr.ed. Philadelphia, May 11. A meeting was held this morning at the Constitutional : headquaiters. There were able addresses ; by the delegates of the late Convention. A procession was formed, headed by a hand, ! which proceeded to the La Pieirie House, ; to serenade Senator Bell. Mr. Bell was introduced from the balcony j by James B. Ingersoll, wl ! action of the Convention a , , ! presenter. ho eulogized the aud the candidates Mr. Bell was received with cheers. He said it would lie contrary to human nature if be did not feel deeply sensible of the honor paid him, but he also fell that the assemblage was mainly to approve the action of the Convention. He did not appear to make a speech upon the political topics of the day, hut tendered his thajiks for the present manifestation. He alluded to the causes which led to tbe Convention it le- ing tbe distrust of both the Democratic nud Republican parties. He trusted that the party to succeed them would be a party of the Union. The Constitution of the country required the people to come forth in their might and manifest a determination to call back the country 10 the time and objects of the institutions of a republican govern- uient, and not exhaust its energies in ob- st ructions. It is manifest that (he public confidence in lite. s'ate of the republic has deteriorated within the last, twenty years. The Convention therefore wisely banished from its consideration all exciting topics that had scattered distrust between the North and ! the South, knowing that it would lead to no public good. That Convention thought fit, among such a host of worthies, t select him, it i- a ccinpliuient ot which feci my very un worthiness. He concluded by trust ing that the party founded with such auspices as harmony and good feeling, would be suc cessful in establishing a new era. and that the Convention shali not have labored in vain. His course for ilie last twenty yenrs was well known aud it would be needless to refer to it again. Tliankinir the crowd I'rocctfllugM of tile I .
