Central American affair as arranged, aud that
the Crainpton matter was now the only obet-ide tt

Many well-meaning, straitforward people have
long wondered what the KDOM??Nothing party wa*
really driving at. Their expectations iu the eom
iog vmuU it (af the I 'residency haw been involved
in mystery. An a party deniring success for its
member* upon a honiespun basis of good sense,
their policy waa paaiii, They kad only to ao aei
that the Aii?-Nebraaka men of the North could
coi.perate with tkem ,cr they with the Anti-Ne?
braska men in tbe election of President, to make u :
triumph certain. To be sure, i; would not be the
triumph of the Know-Nothings alone, but i'. being
the beot the cane admitted of, it was clearly their
true policy to become partners in a victory which
they could not achieve without assistance. Many
and leading members of the party, actuated by fair
purposes mid M bo have never been willing to believe
that the people of the North oovli be brought by
any indirection to sustain the late measures of the
slave propagandists have labend bard to accom?
plish this result. It was said, ovcrai.d over again, at
the late Convention that the Northern Know-Noth?
ings and the Republicans acting In concert, eatjli
ta*iij ?nought elect a l'rvideht. And tbe statc
uicut i? i Imoet a tvlf-i vident tratl. If we t.ike
the lmt elections as n criterion of judgmctit, the
f.ict is indisputable. But there were plenty of
Northern Know-Nothings in the Comentiou who
evidently did not wuit to IBOOOod on suoii a basis.
It was of no cousequei.ee tl.at they aitd the whole
( oiiv. ntion were to d ti . t if no ?uch co..pi ration
was possible, then tbe race of the Know-Nothing
party wuf run, and that they rxjBls? aVOt kepe sVf
success any where. Such a consideration had no
tendency to dissuade them from pursuit; ,t -our.'
total to the s nc ?s 01 the party. The Convention
IXTsisted in destroying all ebance of a participa?
tion in a presidential triumph and nom uatod Mr.
I'illmore aaj a d. ad certainty el defent.
This lettoB lifts the viiil and shows clearly what
tbe present iLumagers. o. the Know-Nothing organi?
zation are at. There i* no loug?r hny uncertainty
ns to the policy of the leaders of that pany. Tuey
d?i not SXpeot to succeeti. Tbt-y do rot even
care a brass farthiEe about the doctrines which
have ?i\en the Order u sfntitH pojiularity, and
have been tbe foundation of all its successes. They
have not recognized a single distinctive principle
or measure in tbe Convention. They have been
dumb or every iasue, and have adjourned without
saying any thing or doing anything beyond nominat?
ing Millard Fillmore lor Preeident. They have
pasm-d do keaeli*?sasaB| aaede mi platform, but *iin
ply nominated a ticket and run. They propose no
eOaTteol on ai.y doctrine or j-rinciple or measure,
but simply acanvds* on I mar.?and a man who is
the roprewntativc of neither side of any living po?
litical i??ue. Occupying only a negative position,
be is intended to accomplish tuly r egative results.
He is simply pitcbed into the cat-vans M an ob?
struction. To be (oire it ia plain enough to I?e sirn
that If he were tt. be eiected he would be found en
inveterate enemy to tbe cad*> and the friends of
fretdoiu He hasr.evtr c ct-pied ssaj other po?i
tion these seven y ear* past.
Bur be is sjasj ot the range of nek ? possibility,
.did the fact thus becomes of small consequence^
Mr. Killntore's Meadl sine,!, it tend to use him in' I
tka canvass ef 1666 as Mr. ^'ac Buren was used in '
I ?for th? breakinr down a| another party.
Tbe game is the tame. tbou_?h the r> suit may be
diffeieut. Tlie action of the Philadclphin Conven?
tion is a nani KTOf of the New-York Know-Nothing
?tud Silver Orey politicians to damage the Republi?
can party and inj ire certain leading individuals
?WitIn. Tke Cnvetsttoti kn ben usetl simply aa
an instrument to kirtl.cr certain p? rtoiial aimt of
these politicians. They fcivc thought that by taking
Mr. I ilhm>rr mt the Know-Notkir.?. candidate, they
would have au od\..nt?.^c with ihe old moderate
Whigs everywhere fa the North, and would draw
off many at" them u. kis aupport on the ground o:'
his former elevation.
The object, then, of the Know Notbiugs has
dw.i.dleto this?tt ieakej the Republican party.
That is to say, this is the object of those w ho have
managtd the Philadelphia Convention and nomin?
ated Mr. Fillmore. The FvYice^President is put
ft>rw srd as a man wfco can entice votes enough from i
the Republican ranis in rb.* Free State* te give
the election to the Nebnska DseaMCMjr. It i* a
fortunate circumstance, ar.d an om.n 01 good totb
cause of Freex om, that cirri instances nave cor
straine* tk? Know-No'hiug nom nation thug early.
The contest now inuuediau-l) op.iie, not between
tt a Know-Nothicg candidate anil anybody else, but
between those irhe are for tie spread af Blaoery
a::d tbe-e who are ag;<in?t it. It ia an important
circumstance, aid a peruiiariy ktnfjf one, that *7*
thus early know the whoic a mot tie- Kvw S'o.h
ing l?sd< r? in the next Pre-identi.ti cmitc**. W*
understand th.-m tully, and t will go hard but
it. r\ N< r?h? rn voter ah;ill understand them Mate
lie^.re the ejection ome?
Thin early nomination will prove the mint disas?
trous blow that co lid have bei u given to the objects
of ihcce w'io have ti.ade it. There jpj now ample
time to UMM to the country the hollow motive*
which actuated it and the results which aione can
flow from it. It will do more than anything elae
eoajU have done to divide the country upon the real
issue before it. 'I"he Know-Nothing caudilate will
be gradually crowded one akin, ;-.nd every dar'*
difcuaeion will lessen hi* suppor.. while the ranks
of the friend* of Freedom w ill be correspondingly
increased. Day by day it will grow clearer ami
clearer to tbe pep ilar mind that men ajsjaj range
themselves on the one aide or the other of the great
question of the extension of Slavery. And it must
at length come to tie regarded a* a farce to think of
\oting for a man who represents neither side of
the question, lei! is simply hi Id out as a lure to
catch votes without having tho -.'host of a chance for
slice* af. *
Mr. Fillmore will serve tbe personal purpose*
of tbore who kai e pioeured hii. nomination,perhaps.,
as well as any hotly who could have been hit upoti,
l.ut his nomination is a singelar sacrifice af larie
motives to small ones. The Know-Nothiug can?
didate. h;.d he been the right man, stood a chance
of carrying this State in the Presidential election.
But Mr. Fillmore stands no rkinrtn ?t alL His
antecedents will repel the Hard vote, which in a
certain emergency mhbt hu\o gonelargely 10 the
Know-Notion*.' candidate, (ai it wont at the last
? lection.) while from all other quarters accessions
nr.- oi.t ot the i,io stion. In bet, w e look upon Mr.
FillmoreV. nomination ta u voluntary sacrifice
of nil tbe ehinees af the Know-Nothing
party in this State. The authors of it
have their ov n personal aiini to sub?
serve, wkirk will in due time appear. The*
have scuttled tho ship without the koowi
edge of saoaf of the individuals on board, who srill
only beooaac IWUt of the tact at the mom.-lit they
see theOi'i'lve. going down. The unsophisticated
?taoaea Of tke Know-Nothing parr, in the North

illation have played precisely the same gam- with
tke hi w-Noshing party that tke Missouri Bonier
Kufllaiis played with tin actual si ttiers of Kuu-.as.
Lb the secoiiil plate, Mr. FUlmore owes bis noiuiua
lion to that section of the (invention which is in
??vor of the Border Ruffian movement in Kansas,
and therefore, according to the rtesnnillg of Its
Comuurvtol Adceitisrr in the very article tt which
we refer, he v. ill be boundiu honor to give that
policy his support. Iu reference tt the allegation
that Mr. Fillmore is not ? I'lemU r of th- Know

nomination. And in giving bun our support, we shall
ni it her lo-estgl.t ot nor .vaiie ti.e r.qMin-ihi.ity therein
This principle we take it Tfu ( omm rem I ilsfsOT
tt'>r i- j npand to carry oaf. Now. the platform
upon which Mr. Fillmt.ro was nominated is the
platiorm containing the celebrated Twelfth Section.
Not only was the new platform adopted by the Na?
tional Council a day or two before the nomination
repudiated by Mr. FiUmore r friends in the nom?
inating convention. They insisted (and with some
show of reason too) that as the nomitiatiug conven?
tion hau bu t: chosen uudt r the Twelfth Section
platfoiu . ir was upon that platform that the nom?
ination must lie made.
The qeeattii n. however, as to what platform Mr.
Fillmore stai.ds upoi., or v. hi ther, as The Com
mrrciat Advertiser alleges, '? he possesses in an ex?
traordinary degree the qualifications for the
? Presidential office." ctnnot, as matters stand, be
of tbe lc3*t consequence to The Commercial .hirer
tisrr, or anyinidy else, in settling the question
whether or nor tt UippOti Mr. Fillmore as a Presi?
dential candidate. In the last National Whig
ennctu opiniona somewhat different from those of
TAc Commercial [Jrertiser s.-em to have been tsV
tortaiiied as to Mr. Fillmore's special qualifications
for tbe Presidential office. At least if we recollect
aright, he was not re-nonimated by that body,
though very zealously urged upon it from the very
|ame quitter which has given him his present
Oomination. Bol koWOTei that may have ktel?of
what earthly eotJaWantnee are a man's qualifica?

possibility of his ever filliDg 1 Mr. Fillmore,
notwithstitnding his nomination, and with
all the votes he may be able to pick up,
Know-Nothing or BOvef Qxejr, is no more likely to
be cho.scn President of the I'nited States than he
is to be chosen Pope of Rome. It is paying to
particular complimeut to tbe sagacity ot The Ceav
mirciul A'icerttser to suppose that it sees this fact
as clearly as we do. But, though tbe vote* given
to Mr. Ftlluiore cannot elect him, taey may help
to elect Mr. Pierce or Mr. Wise, or whuc ,-r el ?
may be the nominee of the Cincinnati Convention;
and it was for that purpose, aud no other, that tbe
Southern men at Philadelphia tiomim: d Yr. Fid

No very important dispatches have been received
.e mails of the Atlantic and the Asia. Private,
letters from Mr. Buchanan state explicitly and
emphatically that the relations between himself
and Ford Clarendon were on a friendly footing,
iti.l wer* eveti more cordial than they had been
since Secretary Marcy 's dispatch desiring there
call of Mr. Crampton. Lord Clarendon was desir?
ous of replying to Mr. Marcy's paper, but would
probably wait for Mr. Crampton'* explanations.
There is not one syllable of truth in the rumored
medintioo of Mr. Bulwor, not was there aoy man?
ner of occasion lor it. The tone of tbe British
Press was wholly uu*arrauted by any official fact.
Tbe statements were fabricated, and the limited
information altogether exaggerated. There is
nothing ken warranting any expectation of a rup?
ture: still, there may be <ome temporary enibar*
rassmonts in diplomatic etiquette. The linlist
m.at correspondence will probably not be com?
municated until Thursday.
Messrs. Mason and ('ass s speeches on the Enlist?
ment Question were di-crcet. while high-toned,
and w ill be fully sustained by the corTespondence.
Man* facts are stronger than they stated them,
and others of importance* were not noticed at all.
Mr. Crifteodeu was misled in his remarks by an
innre-sioa originating in England, and circulates!
here, that satisfactory apologies had been made by
Clarendon, and were so regarded by Buchanan.
When Clarerdoa offered his explanations no in
formatioa had reached Buchanan implicating
Crampton or the British Consul* here, and he ox
preaMsi saT'sfactioa at its sufficiency, providing
they wer? net concerned. Subsequently the whole
case v?j* cbanzed by communication the de?
