Probably if the whole Three .Millions of Voters
in the United States had been -.-paratcly asker1
a month since to indicate their first choice fur
Prosident and Vice President, riot one hundred
would have designated Jmnes K. Polk for the
first office, not filty would have dreamed of Gco
M. Dallas lor either. And yet we find these two,
by Convention machinery, seriously presented to
tho Ameiican People us Candidates for the two
highest stations in their gift! That they will be
supported by the entire purty enginery, though
not by the whole party strength, we sec no reason
to doubt. That they can be elected seems hardlj
credible, ami yet the Ten Millions of Texas
Bonds, the Millions on Millions of granted acres
of Texas lands, held in the United Stute.?, will
doubtless make themselves formidably felt in the
coming contest. Every nerve will be strained
to array the ultra Slavery prejudices of the South
?the new fanatics enlisted by Calhoun vV, Co.
for a crusade to extend and consolidate Human
Bondage?in favor of this ticket, and doubtless
?with some success. Wc expect to see it carry
kb. Louisiana (wherein the next Election is to he
? held,) audio malte itself felt even in Whig Ken.
y tucky; while Tennessee will be contested by it
with the energy of desperation. Personally, the
ticket is weak enough ; but Polk and Dallas arc
both original, unqualified Annexationists, and
this will atone lor all dcticienccs with the riders
of the Texas hobby. This will sweep Missis?
sippi and Alabama of course ; South-Caroiinu is
theirs by prescription ; and they will endeavor?
unsuccessfully, wc are confident?V) overthrow
the Whig ascendency in North Carolina and
Georgia. In the remaining Stales, with two or
three exceptions, the question of Annexation will
operate 6trongly against them ; but this, to the
Di6unionists who devised the plot, is a secondary
consideration. If they can in this contest but lay
firmly and strongly the basis of a Southern Con.
federacy, of winch Tcxub ahull form ;i part, and
the diffusion und fortification of Slavery the
ruling idea, they will not take to heart the defeat
of their candidates in the Union.
But wo hud intended to speak rather of the
causes which led to the strange result at Balti?
more. They are these :
In the first place, Mr. Calhoun and his small but
devoted band of adherents have been determined
from the outset to defeat Van B?ren at all haz?
ards?procuring the nomination for the Cire.it
Nullifier if possible, but defeating Van B?ren any
how. Tennessee came half way into this plot ut
an early day?nominating .Mr. Polk lor Vice
President, but expressing no preference for Presi?
dent?an indication, in the existing state ol
things, equivalent to a declaration of hostility to
Van Burcn's nomination. South Carolina began
by caviling at the time cf holding the Convention,
(which was deferred from November to May to
please her,,1 then at the manner of choosing Dele
gates, and finally refused to go into the Conven?
tion at all, after the choice of Delegates in most
of the States evinced that there was no chance
for Calhoun. Georgia was the only Slate carried
by his supporter-,. In North Carolina, the b.itiie
was nearly a drawn one, but still the Van Buren
men had the lead there, and were decidedly suc?
cessful in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
Missouri was firm as a rock in Ins cause, und re?
mained so to the last. Virginia instructed her
Delegates to support him. Kentucky named her
own Col. R. M. Johnson. Maryland and Dela?
ware indicated no preference. Such was the
state of things presented by the Loco-r'oco Con?
ventions of the Slave States, while ail the Free
States expressly declared lor Van Buren. Ii
seemed to us, as it seemed to his friends, that he
could not fail of obtaining the nomination.
Such was the aspect of affairs when the Tex?
as intrigue was set on loot by Upshur, Gilmer,
Tyler, Waiker Co. with a muliplticity of pur?
poses, one of the most immediate of which was
the overthrow of Van Buren. The first t ,io did
not live to witness its success; Tyler was fooled
into the belief that it would be fish to his net, und
it wa6 pressed with zeal, assiduity und money._
Calhoun if not one ol" the earliest contrivtr.- r- adi.
ly came into a measure so favorable to all his
designs; Dtck Johnson raised the Texas flag in
Kentucky'and Polk in Tennessee.cach having his
own ends to subserve. Van Burcn's letter against
Annexation under existing circumstances ensured
his overthrow. He might still have been r.oaii
nated, if all the Northern Delegates had been
stanch, but his defeat would have been over,
whelming. A Texas candidate would have been
nominated against him, and he would have got
no Southern vole but that of Missouri.
His desLruction was nearer thun his friends ap.
prehended. Some of the Western Delegates wi rt
sjarmed by the ?ortentfl of defeat, and drew tU
to Casa. A few Northern men went with thcin;
dnd the South (Cass having declared very broad
ly for Annexation) centred upon him. Still \ an
Ituren had a majority of the whole number of Dr
Icgates who dared not openly oppose him and his
nomination secured certain. But there was
another undercurrent. Pennsylvania had in
i-tructcd her Delegates for Van Buren, but many
of them were at heut averse, and cherished a
secret hope of securing tho nomination for Bu?
chanan, who had taken ground for Annexation.
Accordingly, though they voted for Van Buren
? n the first, ami some of them on two or three
other ballots, they took catc to vote beforehand
for the rule requiring tiro.thirds of all the voter
tonnke a nomination?thus bl-xking the door
against him. The moment this rule was adopted
his fate was scaled, and lie ought to have been
withdrawn after the second ballot, or never.?
But he we.s pushed on to utter discomfiture; his
nominal friends hut secret opponents dropped of!
by platoons to Ca.-s; and it seemed obvious that
Cass would be nominated when an adjournment
was carried on Tuesday evening. Probably
another ballot then would have carried him, as
Kentucky. Louisiana, and some other Slates wen
prepared to go over to him. But the Convention
ttdj-iunitd for the night, and caucusing began.?
The Van Buren men, themselves defeated, were
i-iill one hundred r-trong, and able t> defeat any
nomination, (hough not to make one. They were
fully resolved that Coss (or rather the backen ol
Cuss) should not triumph. Their best man to
pitch on was Silas Wright; but he would no!
consent, and the Annexationists would not take
h in. Next i:i ordcrobviously stood .Mr. Buchanan
who might have made a good rim, perhaps rcstor
ing their battle in Pennsylvania ; but the double
dealing of his friends had rendered him deeply
obnoxious. The South had no feeling lor Cars.
.:nd had only used him as the best weapon to beat
Vau Buren ; they were now ready to discard him
f >: any more devoted partisan. Johnson would
j have run wi ll, but he is mentally and physical!)
a wreck, and no titter for President than a child.
Calhoun they could not touch : and at last Pulk
was hit on. lit: was one ol trie earliest and mort
determined Texas men. and so aeccptuhie to ihc
South; the Delegation from his State had sup
ported Cars throughout, but they had never pro
Icssed to be lor Van Buren, and so bud not cheat
ed him. The Calhoun interest could not claim
him as their man; the Van Buren men could
swallow him, though v.i'h some choking, and
iltey would not lake C'ass. So Po!k was, at the
last moment, most ungraciously accepted by the
New. York men, though net till they had ex?
hausted every effort lor Van Buren, and asked
leave to withdraw from the Convention, which
was denied them. And so James K. Polk?
certainly not more than a thiid rale politician?
who never devised a measure nor siid a thing
worth remembering?a tolerable stump speaker,
with a liberal How of words, but rather too
much of a buffoon?who got in Governor of Ten
i s>re in '39 because the VVhigs ran a candidati
?a ho could not s.icak and would not drink?but
was beaten on the stump, and turned out in a
fair face-to-i'uce contest in 1841, by James C. !
Jonts, then a young man tinUici! and unknown. I
and beaten again by a larger majority in '4.3?is j
to he the candidate of a once powerful party for j
President! Certainly the man beaten twice in
succcsr-ion by a stripling of his own State, would |
seem hardly the man to pit against. Henry Clay !
But be this us they choose.
The nomination of Mr. Dallas for Vice Presi?
dent is of a piece with that of Col. Polk. He is
a Philadelphia lawyer of foir talents, who was
once in the V. S. Senate, and thence was sent on
the Russian Mission, pocketing ?18,000 for a
very brief exclusion to St. Petersburg!}. Since
then, he has not been afflicted with the cares ol
'jflice, and would not now have been thought ot
for Vue President hut for the fact that he was
conspicuous at an Anni xation Meeting in Pinta
(ielplua some weeks ago. This, although he got
but 13 out of 260 votes on the first ballot, and
Gov. Fairfield of Maine had 10.5, gave him the
nomination the moment it was staled in Conven.
Such ia the Texas ticket, and such the laby.
rinth of chances through which it has emerged
into being. Can it be difficult to predict its late ?
O" Our Philadelphia correspondent has a ru.
mor that Dallas refuses to run for Vieo Presi?
dent, but wc don't credit it. Dallas is not too
I iree to run so?he must run. If the Locos can't
make him stand, the Whigs must send a Coin
mittee and train him. "Wc arc not to be cheated
out of a contest.
? If Dallas should decline, we suggest that
Polk and Tyler clut; their forces and toss a cop?
per to see which shall run for President and
which lor Vice. The second office is not so ur
duousor so ill-paid that it should go a begging in
this \ray?especially since there is no danger o:
any Loco having to til! it.
O* We have a lot of squibs sent us poking fun
at the late Loco-Foco catastrophe at Baltimore.
They are clever, but wc haven't the heart to pub.
lish them. Wc respect the sorrows even of our
adversaries. That application of the old proverb
about ' a pig in a poke.' is too bad. We can":
allow 'poke' to rhyme with "choke" or ' dis
solving in smoke,' in our columns, for three
days yet. ' When things is solemn, treat 'em
?solemn.' Or as the wood-sawyer in 'Char?
coal Sketches' more precisely aphorizes?" A
? in^n in grief is like a piler in a cellar: if
'you don't look our, you'll crack his cocoa.?
? M'nd how you chuck." So the unsympathizing
I comments of some hard-hearted ft How on the
postponement of the Great Ratification Meeting
in the Park to give time for the Fan Buren As?
sociations to become Polk Clubs, or stalks, or
what not, coupled with an allusion to the rather
famous distich,
' And it" we cannot niter Ihmes,
1>> llieurge I] we'll change their MJMg, sir!'
must be suppressed. The folks around Tamilian v.
who guihered there on Thursday c veiling u'-.d
lormally, grimly, savagely approved the nomi?
nation of Polk und Wright, want time to let
themselves down by degrees to Polk and Dallas.
Meantime, the anti-phlogUtic treatment should
oc rtgioly enforced, with cold baihs and mild bev?
erages. The following, however, is so good-na?
tured thai we let it pass :

Declining tu attend the late Whig Muss Conven?
tion of New-Jersey.
Nkw-VoKK, May 23. ISM.
Gentlemen:?I am honored by your esteemed
favor of the 20th instant, inviting me to the Con
vi ntion ol the Whigj of New-Jersey, to assemble
at Trenton, on Wednesday, the 20th.
In other circumstances, it would afford me
great pleasure to meet my fellow.citizens of New
Jersey, for whom I cherish sentiments ol esteem
und friendship that have grown stronger by time
and absence. The specific objects of your Con?
vention, und very pressing duties of a professional
nature, hcrceon the same day, will, 1 hope, gen.
llemen, extiloiu itivd justify ?>v nbeennn.
But, although absent, my best sympathies arc
all with you. That the nomination to the office
of Vice President should have first come from
my honored State, and should have been approved
by such hearty and general demonstrations o'
goodwill by those among whom my youth am*
iiiauho id have been passed, arc testimonials as
valued, as they have been most affectingly ?rate
ful. For, gentlemen, amid the changes anil sep
orations incident to us all, I am sure you will
harmonize with the senlimi nt that it is most con.
soling, to be kindly remembered at home.
The distinguished honor to which vour prefer.
er.ee pointed Ins been greatly enhanced by the
association of my name with the tried and faith?
ful patriot, whose nomination to the office of
Chief Magistrate, the voice of the whole country
had anticipated and proclaimed.
The public life of IIknkv Clay illustrates the
political history of trie United Slates. Since
his spirit stirring voice was first heard m our Na.
lional Hulls, no great measure concerning the pub?
lic welfare has been discustt d, adopted, or defend
cil. in which he has not been in the v< ry foreground
of active and earnCit co?peration. Whether it
regarded a sound currency, the protection of do.
incstic industry, securing to labor its. just rewards,
wlieti er it frowned on Executive encroachments
or s"k ;Iit to allay the u;'it<ii!';ii ol" sectional ex.
eitements, or whether it applied a common fund
iI general benefit, Mr. Clay has stood forth in all
times, a ni"st powerful, steadfast, hini unflinch?
ing advocate?faithful, fearless, anil straight-for.
w.-:rd in all his course. And these measures, gen.
tlemen, are your measures; for which you have
struggled, mid mean to struggle again. Your
hearts kindle at the name ol Hk.miv Clav. be.
cause you have seen, in h:s whole life, the bright
manifestations of Whig Principles, as sustained
by the Constitution, and animated by the spirit
of Liberty.
And should the results of the approaching elec?
tion confirm the nomination made at Baltimore,
I can only promise the best efforts in my power,
in humble reliance on the blessing of God, to
maintain the great fundamental principles of the
Whig party. 1 assure you, gentlemen, that
: \'iii rightly judged, my cevot.oii t" thein, and my
desire for their complete and permanent success
have not diminished, but are as strong and nr.
rent as Wr<cii it was my honor and privilege to
