"Heie she goes and there she trots, back and
jo^frotn .North to South and from South to North,
(as been the hiatory of the contests in the Know
nothing Convention through the lest week. Monday
nothing was done. Tuesday witnessed a Northern
triumph in the admission of the Anti-Twelfth Section
Delegates from Pennsylvania. Wednesday Ely and
Brewst' r bettoyed the Northern aaeat, in their propo
?.-tit* to abrogate the Twi Ifth Se< t;on, but the day
dosed upon a parti?! Northern triumph on the general
qneation Thursday the South rsllied, undid the
{rood result* of the day before, tl.eii aaffcrfaj a defeat
1a the destruction of the old platform, and closed the
Council with a triumph in the new Squatter
Sovereignty and Fugitive Slave Law platform,
fnday night's struggle closed upon anpther Northern
tnnmphover the Pettusylvauia ease; and Saturday
witneesed a Slavery sucecaa in a strong vote to make
. an immediate nomination. One day the South was on
% the ere of aeceaeion, the next the North MOBnod Ban
^ to bolt; not a day of the week since Monday has
closed on ot her promise than that of an exploeion of
Ihe whole affair. The ruling of the Chair on a iwint
of order or the precedence of a motion has several
tunes saved the Convention from immediate dissolu?
tion. The amallest circumstunoes have saved it from
destruction. It has survived nil its shocks, aud still
hves; but what the morrow will bring forth he would
be a bolder man than your correspondent, aftci the
experience of the week, who should predict. The
Convention has been suved to this taBM only by the
dexterous niaengemoet of the New-York und Mussa
thttsetU Nationals, aided by the pr< siding officers, in
prevent;ng a direct vote on n oJear question between
the Notth and South. All the collisions of the Brook
have been on part.ul and indirect issues, and their
remit* have not been such as to afford the strong
preteit, which each section sought, for a secession.
Bad tha Council l?ocn brought to a direct vote upon
the repeal of the Twelfth Section, it would have been
carried, nud the South would have gone tut, as they
kad completed every arrangement to do, giving the
control of 'iie organization to the Free-State delegates,
i'rom this the happiest results for the Presidential
campaign would seem to have been secured. The
false step of Ely and Brewster, in contradiction t,, tbe
agreement in Northern caucus, prevented this, and
from that moment the North Americans have been in
a wrong und uncomfortable jswition.
The Western delegates threatened to bolt again, if
the Anti-Twelfth Section delegates were admit l< d tftMi
Pennsylvania; but although a few went off, the ma?
jority oi thein saw it was not a strong isette enough,
and HticcumlK d to win a more important triumph on
Saturday. Tb:u last sm cos* of the South Americana
promise* them the best results. It was the re*ult of a
?tidden change of policy, for when the session opened
and the vote was commenced on the question of ad?
journment, the majority of the Convention was in fa?
vor of it. Had the roll ben allied instantly and with?
out debate, the Convention Would have been noininully
adjourned to July, but pmctienlly forever. The b'>dv
never would huve met again. The idea seemed to
?trike the South in an instant that an immediate nomi?
nation would secure thein n satisi's^tory can
tixiate, divide the North, and insure the success ot the
Pro-Slavery Democratic nominee. Their delegates who
had gone oot came beck, and then rallied ull thm
forcea to prevent the adjournment. The bolt
iag Southern caucus at the (Jirard House sus?
pended ope-ratious. and turned their hopes
and attention ones mote to the Conven?
tion. And to-morrow they are pretty certain,
by a uuited Southern vote tuid twenty Northern
votes, to nominate Milhird Mm President and An
drcwjaikaoti Itonelson of Tenne-eee or Willium K.
Smi?i of Alabama for Vice-President. The contest is
?ppareutly l>etween Fillmore and Law, and both ?id?;s
are confident of success; but the chances are largely
:a favor of the formci. If the South unite for any
man, tLat man is sure of eueeea*. Etaslus Brooks of
New-York has some strength as a compromise can?
didate ; and there will be votes at the start let Sam
Houston, Oarrett Oavis of Kentucky, and otheis.
The Convention was in uninterrupted session \> ster
day, from 10 a. in. till ? p. m., nearly the whole time
being sps ut nominally in voting upon a motion to lay
upon tbe table the motion to adjourn to July, but
really in a full aud frei discussion of the Slavery ques?
tion*. Every thing like order or pai liamcntaiy law
was thrown to the dog", and the utmost latitude was
allowed every member in explaining his vote. The
vote was ia faot upon making a nomination now, or
postponing the work forever, and the North Ameri?
cans went for the postponement, whde the South
Americans and Naliouals mostly voted for an imme?
diate noiiouatioa, many of them doing so iu direct vio?
lation of instinct ions. But it was really a case of lite
t* death to the National Ammen: party, and the vote
declared that it still Urea.
Some 10 to Bf of tbc Northern members 01 tbe Na?
tional Council?*?)- 1C from Ohio, It from Pennsyl?
vania, C from Connecticut, as many from Massachu?
setts, and a few scattering members from other Stat<*
?will to-morrow sign a protest against the new plat?
form, and declare themselves to nncd Ujnin the p: im i
pie of tbe Jene and Cincinnati resolut.on, and tbe
power of t'otigrews to prohibit Slavery in the Tenito
rie*. The s.Miipathirii g member* of the Convention
will introduce a like declaration into that body a! its
opening in the Mnttf, aad failing to get it approved,
??r an adjournment of the Convention, they will
?eeede and take no part in tbe nomination. In tbe
nrst place, they and tln-.r constituents are opposed to
a Bominatinn now. in tbe second, they can stand u;>..u
Bo plat form of principles which dtx * iM demand
freedom to Kansas and the ?the' T?: . s cons*,
crated to free labor by the Missouri Comp:omise.
This will pot them right before the country, and draw
aclear line between tbe true men of the Notth in the
American party, and tLose who are willing to stand
upon a practically Pro-Slavery pletlorm and sustain a
Ktxically Pro-Slavery candidate.

Mr. Kails- of Conn, rote to a point of order, if th"
President derides that this Convention is nothing hut
a eliminating body, and has no right to discuss or pass
resioittions, I appeal from his decision. Lei us know
whether we are machines or men.
'lie I'reeident quietly ba<ked down, and said tbe
propositions of tbe gentleman from Ponn<\lvan:a were
before tbe Convention.
A delegate appealed from this decision. He claimed
that this Convention bad no right to make or uniiuke
platforms? nothing to do but to nominate candidates..
The appeal was not entertained.
Got, Cau of Florida spoke. He waa baborbsg
under a deep affliction of the lungs, but a deeper
affliction of the heart. The morning lowers. Ho was
an ultra Cnion man, and bud fought the Beoi salotjlatl
at the South for twenty years; and had fought for tie
Union iu the war of 18]2. He spoke iu deprecation of
the ( dbim affairs had taken here this week, and said
it would not do. There ate now two American parties
in this house, sepaiated by barriers which neither can
overleap. I nm satisfied that this amalgamation of
different parties cannot save this Union, and I have
determined therefore to withdraw from this Conven?
tion. He had faith in God. more than in man, to r< ?
(ue and preserve this glorious Union. Speaking of
the division of part its in Congress, be said he could not
ar t, and never would aoi with that party irhiofa *Jm ted
Mr. Banks: that patty which supported the gallaut
Fuller is tbe party to which I belong, and I will boloog
to no ot'ier. You of the North are suffering severely
from foreign IbbIbiwmio Ilia Pope of Koine real roll
your ( lections. We of tbe South are ready to join
you in striking down this influence. All we ask in
return is, that yon will be silent on the subject of
Slavery. But you refuse to do this; you bring your
Bleck Republicans here from Congress to sit with me.
You will yield nothing to the South: the South must
yield every thing to you. We cannot and we will not
do it. I take leave id you in sadness and sorrow.
New-York delegate?Don't take leave of New-York.
Sin- will stand by you.
When Got. Call couoluded, there was a great strug
tie for the floor, und confusion prevailed lot some mo?
Mr. BaBTLKTT of Ky., President of the National
Council, obtained n hearing, and begged Go v. Call
and other gentlemen of the South not to leave as yet.
We bud eaWBgfa of platforms, and be implored tbe
gentleman of Pennsylvania to withdraw bis new prop
OSation. LHe plead eloquently and with tears for
the union of tbe American party. We have con?
quered our opponents in Kentucky on the .lime plat?
form. But we have modified tbat plat form here this
?reekto conciliate our frienda of the North. We
think we can stund \x\nm tbat platform and ate willing
to go home and try.
Goer. Cm i. of Florida?I o.iti't andhvon't stand up ?n
this new platform.
Mr. BaBTLITT continued?Let as not change front
again. Let us have no BJOte to do with platform*
making, i close with moving to adjoani this Conven?
tion till July 3, then to unit nt Luiisvillc, Kentucky.
The President ruled the motion to adjourn out of
order, to tbe surprisi of everybody having knowledge
of parliamentary rule.
Mr. Puck of COBBOOtiCBl moved to lay upon the
table the pending resolutions of Mr. Sui ill ol l'etunyl*
viinia. Carried.
Mr. I'kck then moved to adjonrn to July I, (bjO
place mentioned,) and this was considered.
A motion was made to lay the motion to adfourn nn
the table, and on thin?accepted a,- a test question?
the yeas and nays wen- taken. Tbe call of the roll
(ommencedat at It o'clock, and was not ended until
11 o'clock. Most of the delegates availed tbeaaaslvea
of the right to explain their votes, to make speeches,
some of them quite lertgh t y on the editing quctions
that were disturbing the body. This indulgence was
carried to a very great extent by the Southern dele?
gates, who showed a great division of sentiment. A
-.?ortion declared the party dissolved, repudiated the
new platform, and withdrew from the Convention.
Others were determined to bold on still longer, willing
to accept as a compromise the substitute for the l -'th
aeetsOB platform, or throwing all platforms to the
winds, and demanding nominations on which, and on
abstract Americanlim they were ready to go into the
ptn ridetitinl election, l'crcy Walker of Ala. declined
to vote, and took bis fan well, saying tbat be felt be
was wit in esing the oboegnicO of the American party,
and standing over the pave of its nationality.
Mi. Smith of Alabama, the colleague of Mr.
Walker, spoke in a different strain, and eloquently
[ arged an humediatc nomination a.- the salvation of the
Mm. not platforms, wore what we wanted?
men ia whom the country, North and South, could
lepoee confidence. If this Convention ebould adjourn
as proposed, it would be the dissolution of the Amen
i aa party?the Conveuhon would never come toguth-r
again. He took issue w tb the instructions of the
State Coumil that ap|k>inted him, for the p<?<fpone
ai. i.t of tbe nomination, but would pay them the
rtspeet of not voting. Mr. Smith begged his col?
league to come back, and warmly urged to new effort*
tot harmony and union. Hie speech stirred up the
National*, who cheered hiui Totiferously for some
A Vicinia delegate invited the friends of the
twelfth n-ction to meet in the parlors of the Giiard
House at it o'clock thi* afternoon.
The Delaware delegation united m timk.ng the de?
claration tbat, believing it inexpedient to nominate

eatly a day, tiny hereby withdraw from this conven?
tion] agT< eing to meet at any tune a body, this Con?
vention may a, flt to designate.
The Ohio delegation spoke at considerable length,
und indulged iu mutual retriminations. Several ot
them were for a nomination now and against adjourn?
ment, and denounced tin others n< Biack Repnbh. ans.
Bt sum ll Wattl of Cleveland was one who did this,
making an ? loqu< nt and tffextivc speech, which re?
ceived the plaudit* of the Southerner* and New
Yorkers. He apologised for bolting from the June
Convention. He was particularly severe upon Th i*.

prove an idle farce; neither the North nor the South
would or could abide by it.
Mr. Fowi.m of Arkansas voted Aye aal spoke
with great vtheuience of the necessity of inking a

Mr. Eli of Mataai hu.-ctt ? said be ari tbed to ob ia r*

and denounced him in the bitterest language. He

thoroughly and uncompromisingly Anti-Slavery. Mr.
Eiy also denied the right of any Nutiona! Comic i I to
make a platform of principles for tin- party, aud said
he should offer a usiiIbIbBB to tluit effect.
Mr. BOMBXB of Massachusetts made a ?pee<h. and
(hanged his vole also to an afliimative. He *uid
nothing in particular, exc ept to glorify the Caion and

As sooa us Mr. Sumner had sat down. Mr. A. A.

A sc ene. of indescribable confusion and a most die
graceful tumult ensued immediately. Mr. Riciimovii
mounted a chair and v oc.fernted that he must and

Sacb c: ii-s and shonta. su. h uproar and -erearxu of
" Order," hatl not been before beard, ftAM hoed round
the hall. Mr. Richmond sranding upon a chair, irid in
va:n attempting to get the attention >f the h axae,
until at last Cot bfooni of Vs., pb-dged himself that,
if Mr. Iti' hmontl would give way. he shoe Id tie heard,
amid a complete tempi-at of chei rs, liases, an! ve'ls.
The imesti. n was put to the hou-e whether Mr. It ich
mond should be hi ard, and tin Chairman decided that
leave to speak was refused. It was decid' d;y t'ie iteiat
exciting tf all the exciting scenes witnessed in this most
extiaordiuary Convention. The toll call was resumed
and c ompleted. Hofore the vote could be announc d
Mr. Bit bmobb a^ii n obtl BMd tbo HoOT, or rather the
chair, nnd this time hi WBO listened to witH attention.
W?- rant ot give his exact words: he spoke briefly and
with great plainness: he said that be, in common with
muifof his colli agtteetrans afaThmetts, had sat bumm
Monday in the Council and Convention in silence; whde
Sontheri genth mm had claimed and received the re?
spectful attention of the house; and while every princi?
ple aud rule of order and ot Parliamentary law had been
disregarded, they had been silent, not boOBBM they
had no opinion to express but because they cam* not
here to xnakc mecbea fat home consumption. Hat it
was utooaoorj ami rigbl that the sentiments and posi?
tion of Massiichiisetts and of the American party there
should be more fully and correotly stated than they
had be,n. He appealed to his colleagues, the
greater portion of them at bast, to say whether
be did uot correctly represent the position of Massa?
chusetts. The old'Hav State was Anti-siavery. We
neither could nor would stand upon theodiou twelfth
lection the Amarioans of Massachusetts ri pBBBBto It,
and would stand u]?on uo platform that wus untrue to
Flccdotn. He said he knew tLilt Massachusetts did
not wish a nomination mad ? a? this time, the Ameri?
cans there neither expected nor desired it. A m>m.u
utii n made now would be disastrous, and of little H
no binding force." He referred to the late State can?
vass in Massachusetts, and to the American victory
there which was won In spite of tremendous; odds, and
was a just occasion of pride to the American party
everywhere: but, gentlemen, he said, though we
should be glad to go with vou into the gr-at c-.n' -t
before u* on just aud OaWBl terms, we never can aud
never will stand upon any platform, or go for any
c andidate, if we cannot consistently and boldly main?
tain onr Anti-Slavery sentiments, and tight for th
nru ciple, ' No more "elave States, and no more slave
Territorv." Mr. Richmond said he did not wish to
change his vote, and be voted " No."
Mi. Hh 'v ti it of Ma-svo-h".-etts.? il ' d among the
absentee-, voted "No;" be adiled a lew remarks :n
which he said, that provided this Convention 0?Id
nominate a sound, conservative man. a man of ability,
one who could tiuite upon himself all sei tiona of the
country and henl these sectional strifes, he should bv
terpose no obstacles to h nomination at tan time, but
would go home, take oft hut eoot, and go to work for
tbe cai -e and the candiuate.
Mr. TBTBOffSMI of Masnachvsetts roue, ant ira.d
muib cot fusion attempted to speak, he said no lotm-i

The Cn.fed State* Mail steam* - Atlantic, ('apt
Went, from Liverpool 10 o cbvk morning of Wednes?
day, Feb. 6, arrived off Sandy Hook at to o'clock on
Saturday night.
The Atlantic experienced strong wvaterly gale* for

Ion. 4 s during thick foggy weather, fell ia with a
large field of ire, and traced it southerly to lat. 13?,
and westerly to h>n. Je"*, keepng it ha sight for three
days. Off I-verpool, Feb. ?, spoke ships David
Crockett and Neptune, bound in; Feb. to. lat St? 7',
Ion. 17", passed R. M. S. America, bound out.
Tbe Cunard steam-liip Asia, from Liverpool on mm
Pth inst.. arrived here at 3} p. m. yesterday.
Neither of thesa ship* bring* any nuelligenee of
the missin.- steamer Pacific, which had been on;
seventeen dms wlren the Asia sailed.
The last mails received from Atnet.c*. wete those
cat tied out by the Atlantic.
The steamei Bclgiqtte ha* been Mtt vey. d at South?
ampton. Vater wa* let into one of the graving dock*
and the peninsular steamship Canada was floated out
in order to have the Belgique examined. Owing to
the Company n"tha\ing appl.cd to Lloyd's to have
her registered, their surveyor could is>t report ujhui
her officially. Three surveyors, howevi r, made a
thorough survey of the ship. Their report is said to
be favorable. The leading feature of it is, that in
Orth r that all future dottbt resprcting the strength of
tbe ahip may be removed, her sides be fortified by
strong plate* hat wool th* upper and lower de< ks. and
that the large i argo pirt-holes be entirely OBSnod up
and made patt of the ship's sides.

builder, who aie now building the .uiuicuse steamship
Great Eastern, have suspended payment; liabilities

The protocol preliminary to the Congress of Pans
has Wen signed, and all goes on favorably in the
direction of peare. There i* a report, although it is
traceable to no good foundation, that the Emperors of

cheeked by closing the interview. If is -dated that
the Derby party intend to fating forward a motion in
Parliament on tbc subject of the oim-oon of nil allusion
to America in tlie (Queen's speech. It was also stated
tbut England and France hail jointly sent euvovs to
Bran! to enlist that country agaiust the interests of"
the I't.ited Sfatea in Central America. Die general
