ed they formed in front of the Brookly n c >mparjie?
and took up their route for the Navy Yard. After
viewing the Yard they proceeded to tho City Hall,
and thence went to Major Tomsey's, where a col.
lation was in waiting, after partaking of which
they again returned to New-York. The beauti?
ful horses, fine men, brilliant equipments and flat
tering array of pennants of their lancoi, exhibited
a most elegant mar'ial appearance, and elicited
mnch approbation. On their return they came up
Kssiau st. to The Tribune office, wheeled down
Park-row and went around the Park up Brotd
way to their quarters.
Last night they put their horses aboard the caraj
and, at 10 o'clock started tbeui fjr Boston. Tne

t?F The Bible Presentation by the Ladies'
Philanthropic Association of tho E. L. Snow So?
cial Union, to the Grand Council of the Ordor, took
place last evening at the Broadway Tabernacle.
The Tabernacle was filled nearly to its greatest
capacity by a highly respectable assembly of men,
women and children. It is the characteristic of this
Ordor of Temperance Reformers that they admit
both sexes, endeavoring, as far as practicable, to
imitate the family upon a larger scale In the'com
panionship and social intercourse of the members
of the body. Col. E. L Snow, in honor of whom
the Order is named, was one of the original group
of Washingtonians, along with Hawkins. Cady
and others. Ho was also one of the sixtoan who
founded the order of the Sona of Teinporanee
which now numbers its hundreds of thousands of
members. The meetinc last evening was a grand
turn out. Hun. .lame* Harper presided. 3pee?(i
es were made by 11 ev. John Marsh, Win. D.
Dodge, Ksq.; Hev. Mr. Cram of Osivego, and Col.
rjnow himself. A variety of odes were sung by
Mrs. Waihburn, who seems to be a great favorite
with the Order; Mr. Farsenburg, of Barnum's
Museum, and by tho excellent choir assemblnd
from all the thirteen I'nions of the Order in the
City. The Bible was presented by Miss Goucklln
and received by J. P. LRcour, 12sq. G. G. 8
(Grand Garden Star.)
It was announced at the close that the -rjcia'
Union of the Order No. 8 will give an entertain

An Amikican Violinist.?We had, on Wed
i esday evening, the pleasure of hearing a young
American Violinist, Mr. James Perkins of thii
City, who, wo doubt not, will hereafter be reck?
oned among the best performers on his favorite in
strument. Mr. Perkius possesses a decided mu
sical genius and passion far tho vioiin, disciplined
by earnest study and practice upon the best mod?
els. We recollect first hearing him in public some
four years since at a benefit given to his niasteri
EUpetti, at Palmo's Opera House, when the ap
plauso bestowed on his performance was universal
and enthusiastic. Since then he has gained net
only In age and science, but in tirmnesd of hand
and purity of intonat|on. We are confident that
when he rrr.bes his tlebut before the public he wiil
be i:cogni;:ed as an artist of eminent merit, and
t.n honor to the country whijh, as yet, produces too
few geoiunes in art for ui not to cherish ovory one
with the most cordial appreciation.

j MiRATlOKS._The Wh'gS'&to Convention mot at
Syricoae on Thursday last, and, after the nomina?
tion of the lite reliable Whigs whose n&mei are
st tire head of our columns, split oa the Resola
tioci. Some forty of the Delegate* left the Con?
vention because the majority insisted upon reite?
rating tbrie Urii.cip'es which the Whig? of the
Umpire State hsvesoo'ten in lirnes past proclaim?
ed to the whole Union, through their Resolutions
and Addresses, as being an unchangeab e part of
tfceir creed. And became of this, a pretended
Whig paper, the Albany Slate. Regis'er, has re?
fused to support the nominations, and at the bid
dlDg of those who own it and its editors, eubgises
those traitors, p.nd insults the memory of the vene?
rated 8:gr,ers of the Declaration of Independence
by the assertion that .hey are "of the same
stamp: " and designates the man wham the Whig
party hss frequently honored with i!? suffrages as
''the r>nnr Anmriimr) mr?Tihor nf thp. United 8t*t?S
?enate from this State "
These gentlemen have calied a OoLvention for
the 17th of this month at Utica, for the purposs of
nominating a bolting Ticket. The Delegates, of
course, will be self elected, as the Whig Electors
will have nothing to do with the affair. And we
imsgine that Mr Duer and his sstellites will find
it ra"ther an uphill job to sedoce any number of
th?m into their train ; and that a dissolution of the
party is not so essy a job after all.
[Mr. Richards, the Delegate from Warren Co.
in the Byrtcuse Convention, voted steadily in the
From Ike Auburn Daily Advertuer.
OP The New-York Commercial Advertiser, the
Rochester American, the Buff'slo Commercial Ad?
vertiser, and the Brooklyn 8tar, papers sympathiz?
ing with the State Register in its peculiar views,
refuse to follow that paper in one particular. They
ail carry the Whig ticket at the head of the;r oo
lumi s, and warmly recommend its support. We
have no doubt that when the men who are now
holding back, take time for reflection, they will
come into the support of ths ticket with a hearty
good will.
From the Herunter County Journal.
Whig 8tate Ticket ? As we anticipated, the
Convention which assombled at Syracuse on Tnars
day !nst, have fully met the hopes and expecta?
tion* of the great body of the Whig party of the
Empiro 8tatt>, in the formation of a Ticket upon
whish a'l sections and branches of too pirty can
cordially unite. A more excellent and unexcep?
tionable ticket than the one ^t the head of our col?
umns, it has not been the good fortuuo rif the -Vhig
pi"v to have in the held fir maoy yoarj past. It
cor f*,ea nil the elements of brilliant talent and
souij political principle, necessary to its complete
and triumphant success. It is a tickex male up
through the operation of mutual ceneossioni and
compromises, on the part of delegates holding dis?
similar views upen the less important matters of
party policy, and hence it commends itself, the
more strongly, to the favor of Ihe russiesof the
Whigs of .New-York.
We regret that anything should have occurred
to mnr the feeling of patriotic pride and honest en?
thusiasm which tho ann.uncement of such a ticket
must have enkindled in tho breast of every true
W big. Theoharai tor of the ticket was a cheering
augury of its success at the polls. That there
should bo any disagreement among membsrs of a
Convention, which had so happily and satisfactori?
ly discharged the great work which had called it
together, ran but prove a source of grief to nine
tenths of the Whig electors tr roughout the State.
The msiaes cannot possibly be made to discern any
just or sutlicient grounds for disagreement or dis?
sension, because there can be no division apon
principle among truo Whigs; and a division upon
the minor considerations of mire messures of ex?
pediency, or upon men, is equally ill-jadgod and
We can but hope tbat this temporary storm?
J tbis mere "tempest in a tea pot," will blowover,
Upen Ihe return of tfco ' auber second thought' of
those who have been tossed and drivon from their
j moorinpe by it* sudden occurrence
As for us we have but one course to pursue.
We never have and never shall become a party
to any fa.xiiy quar.-bl. The uDhappy and disa*
trous broils are vi idly and distinctly before us in
the history of our opponents. Ii?!t the d'seom?t
ures and distractions produced by their folly, serve
as way-marks and beacons of warning for us, and
let tho helm of oor flsg ship be put 1 harda-lee,'
that the whole Whig fleet, fol owing in her wakf*,
may run to windward of the ro:ks upon which
Loco Focoism was dashed in pieces Trie wisest
and best course in ouropinion is, for each and every
Whig press in tho State to put out toe 'Syracuse
ticket' at its mnst-head, and ' keep it mi,' it: dkeep
it flying, till the ides of" November sha'l put it in
by a triumphant majority of the votes of the Free
Electors of the State.
From the Lock-port Daily Courier.
[3/" Our political opponents who il fetter thorn
selves with tho prospect ol success from the with?
drawal of thirty-eight members of the Convention,
are reckoning without their host. Both the ticket
j and the principle! presented by the Wnig party,
; commend theu-selvea to the gool sens-? and a-rpro
bstion of '.he people of this State, and will meet
' with a hearty response. The nominations cannot
j fail to receive the support of every man who has,
I or ever had any just claims to the mme of Whig,
while they cannot fail to receive the support of
large numbers ol honest, well meaning men, with?
out regard to party lines. Tne distinguished abil?
ity with which ilr. Hunt has discharged the various
public trusts committed to him, is familiar to all
ciasses of citizens. As a Representative in Con?
gress, whi.e neversuspected of any want of attach?
ment to tho Union, no man in the ll iuse sustained
the interests and principles of his constituents with
greater assiduity and zeal. Whenever any meas
; ure presented itself to his mind, within tha sphere
j of his outies as a legislator, calculated to promote
. the interests of justice, of freedom, of the happiness
or advancement if man, or tending ti a^bier/a tho
j best interests of the country, it receive;! hU cordial
! and efficient support.

The Cokventioh and the Ticket.?W? sue
| render a large share of our columns tlii? week to
an account of the proceedings and resolutions of
the State Convention. We do this m >re especial?
ly that our reader*, and the Wnigi of this County,
may see at once how groundless and absurbare
the pretexts of the thirty-eight gentlemen who
hsve resolved to bolt, and " go elsewhere in search
of Whig principles." We have, in another place,
expressed cur hearty concurrence in the rrsolu
tiona relating to the exciting t jpic of the day ?
These, however, are by no means all, or even the
greater portion of the platform The old fashioned
t Whig principles aside fromt:-e Slavery question,
j have been announced as clearly and as fully as
they ever were sicce the party had a biing. We
j invite the close attention of the Whi^s of the
County to the entire platform, conh" lent that it will
stand the test of the closest examination.
From the Buffu <o Morning Eir-trt.
j The Bolters vs. the Administration.?We
j have been waitit.g in the expectation that the
"sober second thought" of the Bulters would
prompt them to abandon their scheme of disorgtni
: station and ruin. The prevailing oplniou seems to
| be tbat they w>ll yet revoke tne cs!i for a new
i Convention. The feeling of personal exasperation
which led to the secession must have nesr.y sab
' sided, and the policy of giving way and acquiescing
i in tho Dominations mide at Syracuse is so ob?
viously wise, so important to the administration;
that it is wholly impossible to suppose that the
movement is to be persisted in, unless we suppose
that the faction which originated and now support
the Register at Albany have undertaken to drive
the great hulk of the Whig party into opposition to
the administration, in order to make the supporters
of the administration as few as possible, so that
' thereshall be but a smallnumbertodivide the fed?

in several of the New-England States, wbenJaca

ny j ears, grea-ly to the advantage of the " pecu
j liar frieLds ' cf the administration; but we have
i our doubts whether it would work as advanta?
geously under a Whig Executive. The great
Whig party of the nation desire to sustain a Wcig
Administration, and they will not be driven into
opposition by the indiscretion and folly, or even
worse, cf a few unprincipled hirelings, such as the
Editor of the Albany Register, or the insolence of
the Swiss politicians, who claim to be the only
iends of Mr. Fillmufie . We have at the head

To the Democracy of Sew- York:
In appealing to the Democracy of the State of
New-Ycrk, I feel that 1 need no other justification
than the position in which the Domocrany has been
placed, by the adoption of certain resolutions at the
recent Syracuse (mis called) Democratic Conven?
tion, and by the acquiescence in such resolutions
of those delegates to the Convention, who should
have insisted upon a Democratic platform, and who
should, upon the passsge of the resolutions alluded
to, either have retired from the Convention, or n,
leait have entered a solemn p-oteat upon the re?
cord. I will inske no charges against them for
having pursued a diil'ereut courso, for most of them
have rendered manly service in the cause of Free'
dom; but I must be allowed to allude in sorrow to
their submission to the erection ol so anti-Demo?
cratic a platform a? that given to us by the Con?
Usd tbat delegate to tho Convention, and I need
no: name him, who has given to tho country ouch
ample proof of both the will and capacity to make
sln.cat superhuman exertions in tho Democratic
cause?had that gentleman, 1 say. upon the adop.

not ar.ci will not t onsure him. I must content my?
self with t?ll'er?jg in opinion an to tbo course to

tt at the majority ol the voters in tho State are pro
parci to indorse and sanct'on the principles and
spir.t of tho resolutions passed by that body. I
<*iil now proceed to tho consideration of the objec?
tionable resolutions. One of the resolutions to
which I pai licularly refer is in tho fillowing words ;
Kni tted Test we congratulate the country upon the re?
cent seiUe mem by Congress ? f the questions wblcb lisve

Slavrry question wss coonetud, I wish to know

I other than the admission of California as a State of
iiii<t Union. Is it to be found in the passage of tbo
different territorial bills without the Jeilersooian
Proviso ?
It sppears to me that when the banner of the
Democracy was unfurli d In l? I*, there was to ba
seen upon it an inscription in these or similar
words; " Ur compromising hostility to the iutro
; dootion of Slavery or involuntary servitude, except
for crime, into the territories of the United States
now free."? Iflrememberaright.tbe Democracydid
then SLd have since endeavored to prevent such in
tri ' action by the insertion of prohibitory clause! in
the different territorisl bills. Is our cause uf con?
gratulation to be found in the defeat of that endeav?

of-'The Fugitive Slave bill. ' It must have been
in ar ticipation of the ?Lal passage of this Demo?
cratic b\U, thit the Convention found sach great
-?'.use for congrstulstion. Tnat the Democratic te
ist;; d between master and slave is not to bo se?
vered by a short endursnce by the s'aveofan anti
Ul mecratic slate of liberty, was no doabt consider?
ed by tbe Convention as a great caute forcongrata
Utifcn. But probably this was not the only cause.
We Democrats were to bo congratulated on the
privilege we obtained by this bill of aiding in the

lightened Congress! to have included within the

back, however, and that is, that those officers who

sures to restore to the bonds of affection the mis?
guided slave, are r.ot, inali instances, of tho Demo?

Are you prepared, follow Democrats, to join in
the cry "That the country needs repose," and
thus sacrifice duty for rest 7 I will admit that the
country needs repose, but it Is an entirely different
repose from that sought for by thoie compromisers;
at tbe seat of Government, who have compromised
nothing but their own political position and their
country'! honor. The repoae which the country
needs, and which it will shortly obtain, Is a repose
to be brought about by dlgcussion and agitation un?
til the Federal Government stall have relieved
itself from all responsibility for tho continuance,
of Slavery within the limits of tho national do?
main. As in tho natural world, "the true re?
pose of the earth ia in a change of its productions,"
io in the [political, true repose, is only to be
found in a change of measures required by tha
chargesof the times and ofiooiety. Had such aery
for repose as that raised by the compromisers been
listened lo by our forefathers, we should at thia day
have been reposing as colonists in the arms of the
mother country In the war of L812, had the gal?
lant defenders of tho country, instead of following
up the ompaign on tbe Niagara frontier, Inetoad of
emulating the prowei? exhibited by our soldiery
at Chippewa and Luudy's Lane, and closing the
war in a blaze of glory on the battle plniiia of Now
Orlo&na ; had they, instead, listened to tho ory for
repose which camo from a portion of tho eastern
section of this nation, they would probably have
encouraged the Hartford Conventi.mists in their
double design of making a separate peace with
Great Britain and of severing this republic.
Fellow Democrat!?Tho only political repose
which we can take is that wholesomo rest which,
after we have fought and gained tbe battle for
freedom, will bo rendered doubly ngroeable by the
conviction that we have done our duty, and that
our rest can neither he disturbed by the sound of
the last tyrant oppressor, or tho despairing cry of
bis enslaved victim.
1 appeal to you, feliowdeinccrats, not to bo
