That the v.taiitv and hopes of the American partr
wen- i the Free States, none who know :l* history or
its position can wed content. It wa^ in them that tue
evils which it sought to abate wen mud ?evsn ir eit.
It was in them that the large material elements both
of soc.ety and politics, which have been drawn into
its Councils, and given it, :n i ortain localities at least, a
power almost frightful, nearly alone *nst?-d. The
South HM to have looted up?in .t principally a* a
tefuge for the remains of the aid Whig pert;.; a MOM
of advancing its ever use .'try pohnssMO, and as in n
-tmment of political power, useful to the aitrays
witchful, ever grasping slavery interest.
When, therefore, its "rgani ?ation wa* sei/..-d (ijm>q
by the ambitious plar e-scekers of the North and the
Slavery protection?!- of the South, orid sold out by
the former to the 'atter for the ?at is faction of tlo-tr
mutual intere?t*?as New-Vork has just bar rained :t
to Slavery for tbe Pre-idinthd nomination, it may
well lie questioned if tin-party ean survive the Shook
t" vigor and unity, which the transfer has given ii.
That II fMof It fsrtalsjly the erkies.f the hour

that the party con Id not survive a poatponempnt of it*
nominat.on: that if the Convention was adjourned,
ijevi r more wstid :t be 'i.-somblcd. i
Thi.-. being admitted, as it wu- on all hands, it is
difficult, it would seem, to measure itf vitahty, when
the million oi -uih a nomnat.on as that of Millaid
Fillmorc l- placed lipon ,t.s oTcmNing frame. That
aominatioti shacks not a! ?tie that wide sense of file
pat'y which discarded haekfJed and east-away poll
tioian-i, but, more, it violated the oonseientiou-n. of
all thai great mass of the honest men of the ;>any
throughout the Free States who have a deep sym?
pathy w:th the persecuted people of Kan-a- who.
laborer* them-i'v cs, have an oarMel rejiugnance to j
that complete Isrtitincatiou of labor whiih <-'institutes
Slavery, and who, more and more, year by year, are
glowing in the purpose s?> to Otfl ise -heir political
powci a- toi In iinscribe that enemy to their manh'Mid.
that stigma on their toil.
It was not remarkable, therefore, that these senti
nnits had some r.-preseata'ives even in a lxsf\ so
illy rejire.senting the real peopie. as did this American
National Convention: nor that, while the VictwioM
bin gain-makers ie' tue .South and North Were rejoicing

r?presented with the ability and hom-st fidelity to

whole tide of affairs would have been changed?
N.irthern influence would ha\ ? triumphed in the Coun

largely advai.eed. Upon her r< pre*. ntat:\es, there?
fore? bccuiibe much was re?v-onubiy czpected from

the " i-ek. Two of her delegates opened the contest

Northern sentiment had seceded, and two of them

were-often and coarsely bnlIt d by the la-h-nn n of

Tha following protest, signed by all tlio^e who voted
for George I*aw and S trn Houston, was pres.-nied:
PRO 1 ! 01.
We, a portion of the Delegates to th?t National
Aim ncati Convention from the Statt of New-York,
Hoteal aajaiaal the Presidential nomination made by
that Convention, upon the following grounds:
Fwtit Tha nominee is not a member of tie Ameri?
can J'aity. He has aev*f Ix-en im<id. of a t'ourn n
roeni, and no act of his life, no word apokeo, <>r line
written by him of which we have any knowledg., in
uiutes that he sympathizes with that party, or that
he would carry out its principle--.
Sro/rul: His nomination we regard as an utter be
trayul of the great American movein* nt. A traitorous
utt.n.pt to an at it fro** its purpose, and make it min?
ister to th. selfish ambitiou of the leaders and dema?
gogue* of the dead organization of the poet.
? / lb was torced upon the State of New-York
by Southern votes against the w.sh of our State dele?
gate, and fiom these States which no man pretend*
i an cairy their vote for an American Pn--ddent.
J'ourth.- He was fon cd upon the State of New-York
against the express w inh of a large majority of our
state Iy?tislatuie; against the express wish of a ma?
jority of the state miners, and We repeat, against the
? xpsaas wl-h of two-thirds of our delvgabs in the C'on
veiition.
Fifth: He was not nominated by a maj<?rity of the
Stal<s, or by the sjeiegatai Of 0 mujonty oi the States.
Several .states were permitted to cast their vote*
through a single delegate, who cast the whole number
of votes to which his State would have been entitled.
Back votes WOTO caet by parties who had previously
protested again-t the proceedings and retired from the
Convention.
At llj o'clock the Convention adjouim d in high
spirits.

THE FIRST ISOMINATIOS FOR THE

One of the three gn at parties which bow divide Ike)
rdtisea* of the I'mon has pnvtded itself with aeMda
.'.ate for the I'res.iiency. Yesterday the Know-Notev
ings, in their General Convention held at Philadelphia,
asjsaaaV?tsat that i* not the phrase; wa oaaaot mtm
a.n 1 d. 01,1 j.nrt of the delegate* diaeented aad ee
i e,h d - we must say decides!, by a large majority, t*>
nominate Mr. Kiiimore.
Ik* noimnatio'i baa at least the renimmendatio? of
Beajoael respt^tabiiity, and in this ree|M?ct IbeCoaveav
Uoa w.i- more fortunate tbau some feared it would be.
<i. orge I.aw, I 'Uw :tl standing all the effort* made te>
att me 1 Ina a party la the Convention, had averyenutel
tnnip of trtends indeed. Some of them, boweron*
seemed to make up in spirit what they lacked in ousa
ban: fid aaV r the nomination tliey bioke away froaa
the Convention in anger.
The nomination has another quality whiek reooav
mends it tons. It is a purely Southern nomioatioa.
bioiifbt shout by the ellortsof the Sinthern poliliciaaa,
and th. re jam liket** to pswva a i..ruii.iable rival to the*
tuture canUidate of the Cincinnati Convention, in taw
1 e?aeai tor the favor of the South. Let Mr. Pieroe or
Mr. Kuchauuu be uominatvd, he will riad Mr. PuUmurw
already on tk* ground, pn pared to dispute with bioa
the rases of ry Sinthern State in which the VVhiga
have at any time held the ascendancy. Mr. b'uUmorw
. omineiioed I.in.self to the S>utb by hi* ready adop?
tion of what aie called the Compromises of 1830. Tao
South ha* Mated him, and has coiitidcuco in him, ea
pei klag to tad him as pliant an instrument in its banSkt
during Li* second term of the Piesidency as be woo
during the first.
(tin ot the most remarkable indications of the ch**>
a< ti 1 ot this nomination is lotrad in the return of the
sec du g delegates of the Siutheru States, as ?000 ae
I appeared, tea*tkefctJbraaal vote tint taken, thai
Mr. t'iliinore was likely to be nominated. Oovernor
t a l, ?l.o had withdrawn in dignified sorrow from e
Convention in which it seemed to bun that the South
was not likely to hnve its own way, came back with,
hie nsNiciutis, anil leaped with delight into the rever?
end 11.11 - ot ldownlow, tho righting parson. The mo?
ment Mi. hiilmote's nomination waa certain, Lbs*
Southern politicians felt that they had secured a vio
Urrja The Twelfth Section of th? platform, it U true,
l ad been nbrogated: but it had been replaced by an?
other, meaning precisely the same thing, and now taw
man who was the choice of the South was to be takue
for the raadWetOi They could reasonably ask uo
more. The Siuthern interest bss triumphed in the*
Know-Nothing Convention as fully as tt ever did he
tnrj of the piiMous National Conventions of the old
portion hold a! BaMleaora oreUewhere.
The chances of Mr. Kilbnore in the Free States aret_
small, for tin- very reason which is hkely to give him a
part of the Slave States. He is made a candidate by
? I nth, and w ill be likely to remember it; he wee
their iu-tiuiiiciit 11.1890, and will be so again if elected;
he is nominated on a Pro-Slaveiy platform, and is not
likely to be less an enemy to tko extensiou of Stevery
liiun the (looventioo B hu b adopted it; he waa not the
cnudnlute of ai y IVm State in the Convention, and !?
eeitain not to be supported in any of them with cor?
diality or zeal. What State north of Delaware is*
l.k> > to give him iL* vote ' In none of (hem has kn
read* r< d himself popular by any public service, by an/
good which he has done, or mischief which be hae
( hccki d. In all of them he is principally remembered!
as the man who adopted and helpcu to force through
CoBgreaathe measures of tsvi, tee ; 1.1-ot* of the
Ni biaaha .Vet -ahaoe tla pussage of which they have*
to ei n.e unpopular and odious?and as the head of ?
set of men on which was tix- d the opprobrious name of.
the Galpliin administration.
The nomination of Mr. Fllmoie is another illustration
f the mtUnTerenc! of the American par > to what thew
proh ss to consider as their distinctive prim jples. Tlw*
-tuigg. of one lisk to ezpunge, and of the other te>
retail., tin- '1 w> hth S< etion, \wis between the friends and
ti,. enemies of th* exxeoaloti of Slavery. The anti
? t. radot ? ta ?aoeeeded in striking it out; the exb a
ioalata rallied and substituted another of the earn**
purport, aad 00 this platform Mr. Fi Union; waa nom

Mans. Pkuai (he beginning to the end of the Con?
vention, all otter solicitudes wert swallowed up in thie.
Some 1.1' tl:.-dis<onfed members of the Convention
iillirm that this is a Whig noiiun/itee. It is so. ne
doubt. What else could be expected when the Wkigr*
at the South 11 tim ? u'it.mate saaoeOHH of the Whig
party, OT ratkor the Whig party under another name,
with a pc-t et identity of {MihtieaJ principles' Under
Iiis 1.111.1 stion 1 he V. mg ot the South will rally to e
-pinti d coiites: with the Democrats. Hut though at
the B01 tk the W big party, never having been divided!
tkt Slav? ry question, holu- .t- integrity under the
W Off aaisarioi, ai the North it has crumbled into
fragments. A remnant of the old party, faithful to
poetical t. editions which have hcorxne obsolete with
rbe ma s, will no doubt support Mr. Fillrnore, and With
them a division of the Know-Nothings who wilhagry
submit to the rule of the slaveholders. Tke reatef the
Kuow-.Noibiugs will naturaiiy ask Uietnw Ives whether
all tttefr < zertMaa to found a new party on a peculiar
basis, must red in this: that, with a Whig leader at
their head, arke never connected himeelf wftk thssr
patty, they are to fight the old Whig battle overagaia.
When they begin to ask tL'-mielve? this q iestion, their
I'-al in the contest will not be very ardent,
V - much can be said for the new candidate for the
Viee-P Mnjor flonclaoo ban never dia
rhed himself ir any walk of life, and hfsaeefaf
