Cincinnati, Not. 14, 1854.
I believe the report 1 sent you yesterday, of the moot
ing of the (.rend National Council of Know Nothings in
this oily, is correct. 1 understand that they will as
simbte about noon to-morrow; but I now learn that
twenty-Iwo States, and not twenty-eight, will be reprc
eeuted on the occasion. The object of the convention is
not to make an oat-aud-out nomination of a candidate
for the Presidency, but to transact the usual business
before the Council, and eVct a chief of the order for the
whcle I'niun. It is suggested to me, however, that this
chief, wlt.>eTer he may be, is to be considered the Know j
Nothing candidate for tbo Presidency of the United
With this suggestion in view, it becomes interesting
to look at the chancre of the different candidates for the
offlce of the Chief of the Know Nothings. Five indi
viduals will probably cone beiore the Convention;?
lien, tarn Houston, of Texas.
Ceo. Wiiitield Scott, of New Jersey.
Hoc. Jacob Broome, of Pennsylvania.
Hon Millard Kill more, of New York.
, Hon. John M. Clayton, of Delaware.
The chances of Houston are deemed the best. Ha Is
-considered an available man; ie now opposed to Irish
whiskey snd lager bier; has, during the past year, or
ganised upwards of four hundred end fifty local beiges,
or coumils; has plenty ef military glory and romance;
is a We-tern man living at the South, with a Northern
end Ke-tfrn reputation lately acquired; and has been
President of the Hepublic of Texas:
AU know (lee. Scott and his antecedents; but the
salient point in the bravo old Ccnoral's life with the
Know Nothings, is his famous letter in favor of a change
in the naturalisation laws from five to twenty-one?the
time it takes e native born American to acquire the
sight to vote himself a President or a farm. This eele
bra ted letter lo>t hitu a great many foreign votes in
1652, which Is thought to be in his favor as a candidate
on the Knew Nothing ticket.
Jecob Broome is not so well known, altbongb he was a
candidate for the Presidency in 1662, and received votes
in Pei nsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. But
Mr. Br< ome is known to the Know Nothings. He has
hren fi-r years toiling iu the native American cause; is
the father, we may aay, of the order; ha* just been elect
ed a member of the next Congress, snd will bo treated
with fraternal kindness at the convention.
Now we come to Millard Fillmore. He is a member of
the ord.-r. John M. Clayton saya so. It is known, too,
that sit the Fillmore whigs joined the Know Nothings,
heart, purse and hand, at the last election in yonr State.
It is also stated that whee Mr. Fillmore was on his late
toor at the 8ontb, with tlie Hon. John P. Kennedy, the
author of native American novels, with scenes laid (n
native American forests, be aided more or loss In the or
ganisation of about two hundred and aixty councils, or
lodges. So I am told. I am also told that he is on inti
mate terms with 8am, who waa in New York on the 7th
inst., and waa to have visited Massachusetts on the 18th
iawt.; snd you can tell better than I can whether or not
he took the New Haven train after your election.
John M. Clayton comes last, because he says he is not
a member of the order?is not e candidate for the Pre
sidency. and don't cere e button for anybody. But in
these times it is difficult to tell what may turn up.
* Clay ten, by the refulgence of his genins, as shone forth
in his late letter to somebody in Philadelphia, has been
the means of organising quite a number of lodges, and
thereby siding la the spread of the wings of the Ameri
can eagle all over the country.
This is all I can communicate to-day. I hope yon will
receive the proceedings in full.
Pursuant to adjournment, the Beard of County Can
vassers met in the chamber of the Board of Aldermen
yesterday at noon.
The Fre-ident (Alderman Ely) called the Board to or
der. The roll was called by the Secretary.

leat. a sprc'al call is made for them.
Alderman Uows8t>?1 call fur the reading of the mi
nutes of the last meeting.
In accordance with this cell the Secretary read the
minutes of the pie*ion. meeting.
Alderman Woobwabd moved the approval of the mi
nutes Carried. _
The IHmgnurr?The first business in ordAr "before this
board is the report of the special committee, which was
raised yesterday in relation to the subject matter which
was referred to them.
This subject matter was the protects. received in rela
tion to the election returns, and the resolution providing
for the committee is as follow*:?
Mreolved, That the several pretests presented to this
board bs rofttrod to a committoo of five, and that said com
mitt** inquire into tho ooaapotaeoy of this board to go be
bind tho returas from several districts, or to investigate
questions of Itrand and illegality In relation thereto; and
that said tommlUgs slso recommend what action oa tbo
part of this board (If any) shall bo taken in reference to said
pretests; and that said committee report at tbo a??t meet
ing of this board.
Alderman Williamson (Chairman) reported progress
for the committee. They bad met yesterday Mtbrnoon
at fonr o'clock. It wee ascertained that the gprtiee pro
testing had engaged counsel to be heard before the com
mittee. Parties opposing them also desired to be heard,
and the committee had found it impossible to finish their
business. They, therefore, desirs permission to continue
their session; end at the same time he would request
the members of the committee to meet in this room this
afternoon at fonr o'clock.
Tho Finmi Tho Supervisor of tbo Seoend ward
t> porta progress far the oommittee. and requests that it
i ooattaqot. Re fertfceg request* the committee to
meet hrie this afternoon at tour o'clock The qut-Miou
it. on ihe acceptance of thia report.
Alderman HutaiOK was oppoecl to thl* course of pro
n cuius. He had auppcsc-1 ?h<-u the committee was ap
pointed that its members Here to take the advice of the
l'ount-el to the Corporation epoo ihe point at issue.
Now, it sterna that they are to have a (cries of argu
ments from several counsel. If aaitl Alderman derrick,
this is to be the case, let us all hear th? arguments, not
sit here in high state and take them at seend hand from
?lie committee. 1 move a? an amendment that the com
uinUe he discharged.
Aliitimsn Haiku?I second that motion.
Aldvrmun Mutt asked for the reading of tLe resolution
hjr which the committee was ruined.
lite t rlsilext?I'ftrhap* it would he woll enough to
have the resolution read.
Alderman Hnwaao? What has the commltteMone ?
ll.e l'RKtdnniT?The Chairman has just reported pro
slid. Howaeii?As 1 understand the matter, this coin
m.ttte was to obtain u legal opinion us to whether or not
we have a right to go behind the Inspector's returns,
i hey should have obtained the opinion of I ho Corporation
? 00 use I or the attorney of theStatc. If they liaro not
done so thee have not prop, rly represented me, and I
am not satisfied with their action. They should have
applied lo those gentlemen who are paid to expound the
tuw correctly, 'the Alderman was In favor of rendering
strict justice to every body. If the chairman of this
(-u1.1n.1tec lias not visits-. lln-se legal gentlemen, then be
1.hi reflected Iris duty; air. if he ha., neglected his duty,
then 1 am not rath-fied ivsth him.
llse I'KB-iurvT?The cha'rmtn of the committee ha
heard the inquiry of tlie Br-ervVor of th- Sixth.
Aid. Wiuianaox >ald 0 lew word,- in reply, -.-eiterstln?
his report, as given above.
Aid. Mcrr aeid that thl-i as a que-tion of vast im
portance. It should be nettled at once. Whether the
board adjourned a no gave the coraiiii'tev power to con
'inue ita Investigations, nr whether the arguments un
lit, nrd before a full bee rtt wa-. nut a matter of vit.11 conse
quence. For one, he viw will ng to agree to either course
of proceeding. Ho had the utmost confidence in the 90m
mitu-e. which the Alderman of tho Nineteenth (Aid
Derrick) bad moTed to discharge. The speaker wai op
p>?ed to this course of priweding, for this reason: It
sctn.k that the parties en both sides have engaged able
counsel (among others the District Attorney), and tho I
u h< 1? matter i? t? be argued beforo the committee. If
ouj xrembor of this board desires to hear the arguments 1
lie can do so. If the g<-ntleuian from tlie Nineteenth de
sires to have his mind enlightened on the subject there
will be siropportunity, or if any other member of tho !
heard wants light he can have it' Do not. however: let
us take the matter out of the hands off this committee. |
air, sail) the speaker. I am in favor of n full investigation
uf this matter. I am in lavor of preserving tho purity sf
llic ballot box. upqn which rest* the safety of our conn
tiy and its institution*. The vote* iu the batlot box
fboutd be put iu by logs! voters. They should be fairly
canvassed. If it i* charged that frauds have bceu com- ;
milled, let them be investigated by this board, if it has
power. 1 do not say that any fraud* have been com
mitted, but if on investigation it shall appear that such
is the case, let the guilty parties be brought to justice.
Let us do our duty and meet the question.
Alderman CUfNCXV?When I made my motion yester
day I was ol the opinion that we ought to hear the poli
tico- r*. I 11 m of the aanu- opinion still. Tho commit- '
tee will no doubt be happy to have everybody projont,
and they can enlighten their minds on tlie subject by 1
hearing the arguments on both sides. It would 'not be
the pioper course to take the matter ont of the hands of
the committee.
Alderman Hint kick did not think there was any neces
sity for a committee. Hew a* of tho opinion that f he '
Canvassers were disobeying the law by not proceeding
to the discharge of thefrduly and canvassing the vote*.
We do not want anything more from this committee.
H10 resolution appointing them docs not giro tlicm the
power to go into any investigation. The law requires ]
that wc shall go on with the canvass. Let us do it,
then, and if any objection is made to a return,-wo will
hear it in tho proper place. Another reason why this
committee should not proceed is contained in its organ!
.zaUrn. The minority of this Hoard have no voice In it.
The committee is altogether aud entirely whig. There- :
fore it ought to be dissolved, fuch partiality was un- |
precedcnted. The democratic- members of the board had '
i a right to demand that every thing should be done fair- {
ly. honorably and above board. The members of tlie '
i committee are all honorable men, but they are all par
tisans, and 1 have known honorable men*to do things
1 for their party which tbey would not do under other 1
circumstances. 1 would nut have all democrats or all ;
w hig* on the committee, but give a fair Hhare to each.
It is dangerous to trust a one-sided committee. j
The PnttUmxr?Tho gentleman from the Nineteenth,
forgets that he himself moved to excuse the gcntlemMi
from the Twenty-ftrwt (Aid. Mott), tho Ajax of tho de
mocracy, from aerring on the committee.
Alderman Waikman Mid that the committee had cer
tainly a right to their owu judgment regarding their
power* and duties. Tliey are merely charged with in
vestigation of the matter, and it is no business of their'a
to go about hunting up lawyers. The question nt tssuu
was between two great parties. Able oc unset lm-i boon
employed on both sidM. and it wm right that they
thould be heard. The committee would then report on
the law and the facte in the case. They
could nut be altered by the rooslru tiun of
the committee. The law would b>- democratic law, as
well as whig law. Ami I oaneot (sakt Aid*, man Wake
man) see the forty at t ic remarks <4 the gentbuuau
from the Nlncteeflfflli . Menu k), if v.# present only
tho law and tbefa^s. This is not a political arena, thl*
is not a struggle for victory. M'? are h?i- to pass upon
the voto of the county, sod although- the grnl>*ii*n
from the Nineteenth would do thing* for his party that
he would do for nothing vise, *t doe* not follow tNht
every on* else resemble* hint, flu- rommitu-* hadlutond
i-d lo hear the argument* of counsel this nsoinlng at
ten o'clock, but it waa ascertained that four o'clock this
atteinoon was tlie earliest, possible time tl.*t could be
had. When the cr.tqmltMr come to a conclusion, it will
be their statement* and their arguments that will be pre
sented. It appear* to the committee that they ar*
taking.the courso pointed out by the resolution.
Alderman KbllYs-L am opposed to this committee?in
the Brat place, because, it, was appointed all from
The FxsnusxT?XUe Chair did not appoint It *0 in the
first place.
Aldermen Kelly?No matter whether the Cbair ap
pointed it so iu the flrs^placc or not. lie appointed it
bo. In the next ptaeJ, If James W. Barker had been
chosen Mayor of the city, wo should not have heard
anything about frauds. But Barker was not elected, I
and hi* friends come here aud make a dlstrbance about
it?a set or bigots and fanatics that the democracy has
crushed out.
Alderman Waxxxax?In the city of Naw Tort.?
Alderman Kxllt?Yes, in the city of New York, and
it will be crnahed all over tho country. Fernando Wood
is elected, and he will be tlie next Stay o^ of the oity of
New York, in epite of all the effort* of bigota and fana
tics. I hope the committee will be discharged.
Alderman MoTT?The remarks the gentleman has just
Alderman Kxlly?They are true; nothing but true.
Alderman Mori?The gentleman tells us that the men
who protest against the election of Fernando Wood are
only bigots and fanatic*. Who is he that makes this ,
assertion? Is he an American citizen? Are we to be |
told here that American citizens ate nothing but bigota I
and fanatics? Are we driven to thia extremity? If such I
i* tlie case, I am rot aurprised at that great revolution
which is now sweeping over the country and threaten- 1
ing to carry everything from Maine to Georgia before it. I
If we are to be told here by a man elected to represent 1
us In Congress that the voico of American boru citisena I
is to be huahed, then there is need of such a revolution.
Let him carry those doctrine* into the halls of Congress. 1
There he will find no response. Let him proclaim them '
in the str, eta, and see from whom the response will :
come. From those who have fled from tyranny in other
land*?who have been protected by our government, aud
who are the first to rise up and say to American born
cltlw na, "You are not Ht to manage your own affairs."
I 1 avc kern a friend (o adopted citlx'-n*, but when tbey
arise and say, "We demand precedence over native
eitisens." I take my staud against them. It is a princi
ple which would cruah the Institutiuns of ihe country,
and bring disgrace on the head* of its cilizeus. 1 hope
t! et the number of such adopted citizens is few. I trust
that but few of hi* countrymen agree with the gentle
man fri.m the Fourteenth ward.
Alderman Kelly?lam a native horn citLeu. (Ap
plause from the lobbies.)
The I'KttiwtxT?Individuals in the lobbies will refrain 1
ficm any expressions, either of their approval or disap
Alderman Morr?Tlie gentleman state* that he was .
bq;n in^bU country. Neither his nets nor his language I
would lead us to believe that such is the fact. He. how
ever. exerts hi* influence against true born eitisens, and ;
enunciate.- principles unworthy of him. I cannot think
eny American citizen would desire that foreign, rs should
take precedence of native citizeui. He may have been
lorn here, but he has inherittd the despotic principles
of hi* forefathers, and it matters bnt little where lie
was born, ro that he does retain those principle*.
Alderman Voorhw?I do not see what tins has to do
with the question. I call these gentlemen
Alderman Kvllt?I want to say a wurd or two In
"ft PrwiDrxT?The question la on
Alderman VooRHie?All this discussion is out of
Alderman Kelly?I was born here, but I have <vuffl
cleM liberality to say that I do not care where any man
?JA -W tKere ia more liberalism in tnjr
heart thaji tnere ji in his (Alderman Mott'*), and more
honor aUmt me than there ia about him. I have lived
in New York for thirty-four years, and I dofy any man
o say that I ever raised my voice against the creed or
the country of another^ Ne man loves the Institutions
of the country better than 1 do. My father waa banished
rom hia native land foraunportng the same principles
that were fought for in the RevolutionaryWar This Is
not his country (pointing to Alderman Mott). God for
bid that it should be, for any one can see, by tnmelv
looking at hi* countenance, that if he had the power he
wonld he one of the moet damnable despots on the faee
of the earth.
Alderman Vooiuae?I again call the gentleman to
The FMUDBIT?The Supervisor from the Fourteenth
la ont of order. The qneetion is on the amendment that
the committee be discharged- If this amendment is
adopted, It carries the whole matter along with It.
Alderman Vooama?This la the question then, whether
or not the committee shall be discharged.
The PmwiDKjrr?That ia the question. The Supervisor
from the Ninth will eonflne himself to It
Alderman Vooama?We are not her* to decide whath -r
or net J. W. Barker is Mayer, hat to canvass the vo'
fairly. The committee have a right to get all the ..
tomtit* thlf eon om the i object, and they should b.
allowed to go on. If there ia evidence to prove a fraud,
let us hare it. Wa hare oouie here U> do our duty, aad
let ua do it. I hope the committee will not be di*
chanced, but will be allowed to g? on, and give ua all the
iiifomiatlnn they can obtain.
I Alderman Hrown hoped the amendment would not
prevail. He thought alt this business informal, hdu
hoped the Board would proceed to do it* duty. The ex
hibition of feeling they bad witncuted wouM neeer hare
' been called rip hart It not been for the partiality ?howo
in ibe selection. 1 he committee, as he uifdentood the
mutter, had but one thing to do?to lind out whether
thin Beard hud a right to go behind tUa inspector*' ra
luins. lti- hoped tlicy would do thi* at once.
Alderman How ami;?I ant now more than aver in favor
of the discharge of thla committee. It >etuii th'it they
tnler.il to llaten to the arguments of hall a dozen lawyers,
i win u they should do nothing of the sort. We ahould
tend for the counsel to the corporation and hare him
address this whole body on the taw of the matter I
l.ave a particular feeling in this matter, because the
ward I have the honor to represent at this board is said ,
to bo the li cality where the frauds have been commit
tid. It bas also tieen apid that 1 appoiuted inspectors
In thie wan! who could uet'bei read or write, and that

Juatafter I had closed my letter of the 10th, I
(til in with a prominent member of the Know No
:hh>g party, who told me that returns hal been re
reived from 410 "coundla," whlc j aboved the par
ty 'a n ambers to consist of upwards of 73,000 voters.
He expressed the opinion that Mr. Gardner would
uceivenot less than 65,000 to lea. I thought he was
"gaaing," though aware that the party was strong.
The event has proved that be waa moderate in his
? stimate. That event baa astounded every one. Not
only have the whiga been exterminated, bat the
Know Nothings have carried everything. Yet, on
reflection, we ought not to be surprised at the geTr
ial result, howmoohsoever some of the details may
astonish as. There has been growing np an aver
sion to the whigs, la Massachusetts, ever since 1841,
which nothing bat the want of onioa on the part of
thafr foes prevented from coming to something
long ago. Tba partial union affected la 1850
'51, of the various branches of the opposition,
*boved%hat canld be done; and at the aame time the
? venla oi those years disclosed the great difficulties
ibateaUtrd in *>:?? way of forming a permanent
anion. Heice it was that few people were pre
pared for what o ^erred here yesterday. It wae
known that there was a powerful new pasty, bat
mofct men th jngbt ft would encounter a more for
midable resistant than K received. The reason
that it succeeded at reach better than ths coalition,
?as, because it ex< erienoad no troubie to speak of,
from within, fbeie was not in it a body of men
oing all that ttasy could U help the wniga. The
oefeat of the wbige would have been almost at com
plete laet year silt has this, harVit not been for the
i utt fate nee of the gaieral govern meat In their be
lajf, and the purchase of thd Cathoftca to their aup
foit. Not only had Know Nothings nothing to
tear, and the whigs to hope, from the national ad
ministration, but the wry fact that the Calholios
uad once helped U c whigs, and were expected to
do to again, k:j,< d the rroteatants in no amall
?nmbcrs egslbt-i t cm. Then the monstrous error
f tfae wbige in making such bitter war on
Mr. (Jaidner, waa attended with the effect of
easing thousands npen thouaands of demo
ctata end free eoileia to vote for him, who saw
that bis election would be the moat mortifying thing
that could happen to the whigs, and probably be the
mesas of utterly overthrowing mem. Hiving
made np their micds to vote (or Mr. Gardner, it was
an espy thing to go for the rest of his party's nomi
reea. Everybody seems to be pleased with the
result, save a few whiga; and this Is an additional
reason for believing that men supported the Know
Nothings mot* for the take of getting rid of a rale
that they hated, than form any very strong attach
ment to'the principles of the sew organisation.
That organisation afforded a centre around which
tbs d?a*ffrMad 'owM ratty; e*4 the *K*<rte*re of a
mtjorttj law caused men to refuse to throw aw^y
tbetr votes. Tbe ocnfest Iff between Mr. Gardner
?cd Governor Washburn, sad therefore men voted
straight. As tbe type and f mbodirueut of dislike
to tbe whig awes d>ocy, Mr. Gardner got hi? 80,000
votes, tint e eighths of whom probably did not think
of voting for htm at tbe time he was nominated.
Tbe whig* sere so Kind as to remove whatever
i objections existed to him >n their minds. Mr.
j Gardner ought to be very thaakfa to hie
, old ??ocistee Tot their savage asseultj upon him.
It Is impossible, a* this early time, to analyze the
I character of tbe Legiaistuxe that waa yeeierlay
chosen. It is almost entirely oompoaedof Know
Nothings, the w igs being aa much reduced as over
; were the democrats in their worst days, whoa tvrey
: could only muster half a score of Representatives.
Pharaoh's host waa hardly more cjmplMeU sub ,
