Then came the main question : Shall the Convention nominate at this time T Mr. Means, of Jefferson, moved that the Convention do now proceed to nominate candi dates for Bute offices. This wu put, and carried: A motion was made to nominate Col. Medill, for Governor, hv acciammalion. This brought a storm of criee of "No I no 1 1" from all parts of the Hal). Somebody then moved that this Convention do adjourn till June next. The President deci ded that this motion was out of order, as there was another motion pending, A motion to adjourn, tin die, was then made. This being in order, was entertained, but it was finally withdrawn without being put to vote. By this time the opponents of a nomination began to wake up, and a motion to reconsider the vote to go into the nomination was made, and the rot by counties waa demanded. i be question being, shall the vote to etc bow be reconsidered, it resetted ae Id' lows i For reconsideration . as Against, S9 So the motion was lost, sad tb convention proceeded to nominate candidate for Governor Tbe following names were announced .

William Jfedill, having been declared the nominee for governor, committee of three waa appointed to wait upon bim before the con vention. In due time be appeared, and was lifted upon the stand, when he delivered him self of the following SLoOfsa speech "Mr. President, and gentlemen of the Dem ocratic convention. In obedience to the re quest of your commiite. t appear before you for the purpose ot thanking you for the honor you have done me by placing me again as the standard bearer of the Ohio Democracy. Having been elected two years ago by 60,000 majority, it U fit that, after the disastrous de- feat of last year, I should be again called up- on to bear it back to victory Though the al- lied army, with all the isms combined, have been victorious over our forces in the last cam. psign, there is one fortress (proudly striking bis breast) that will not yield. This is th lar- gestsnd most respectable Convention I have ever seen in this city. I regard this a a good omen ; I will bear our glorious flag aloft, sad if not successful I shall at least endeavor to merit success." The applause that followed might have been deep, but it was rot loud.. LnrjT. Govbbbob. The following announcements were made for Lieutenant Governor, viz - James Myers, H. B. Payne, and William Sawyer. (Whei tbe name of Payne was announced, he n. claimed, "not in order ") The first ballot resulted as follows Myers, 114. Sawyer, 47 Payne, 3 After the result was announce. I. a committee was also sent after Myers. He soon appeared. and in his usual happy style, spoke at. tallow; "Geotleme.i of the Convention, I return you my thanks for the honor you have done by a- gain nominating me for the office ol Lieutenant Governor. I thank vou for this mark of your continued to- fidence. and though the pros pect ot SBwnees is noi as flattering as it was two years ago. yt 1 am proud to receive ibis new testimony of your esteem, democracy is en during, and the true Democrat should be ready to fight as well when the cloud lower, as when success is certain Although defeated, the Democracy is not conquered. It ia only ne cessary to act in concert, and o stand upon our old p'at'orm to be again successful. Again I thank you for the nomination." UffBBktB cvvbt j i n oss The following persons were nominated as candidates : Wm. K. nnon. of Belmont- R. B. Warden. of Franklin; E H. Leland, ol the Northwest; S F. Norns, of lermont, Reuben Wood, of Cuyahoga; H N. Hedges, of Pickaway, and C. W. Searle, of Muskingum On motion, the rules were suspended, and Judge Kennon. was unanimously nominated, bv acclam ittoo, tot the long term, this was the most sensible act of the day. When Judge Warden's name was announc ed, a delegate from Hamilton ounty asked it he was proclaimed as the can lid-tie of Hamil ton county ? some one responded in a loud vtMce, " No, sir, ot the .-ilate ot Ohio. It as eviCent mat power uaa tuyariea irom in Southwest. McKenzie of Putnam, wanted to know n this Reuben Wood, whose name had been an neunced, was the same man who had resigned his post of Governor, for the purpose of being a Consul to some town down in Soutn America? He thought the cont ention would not be very likely to give him ano'her office. Nobody defended Wood, and so that topic was dropped, Judge John A. Corwin thought there was a misapprehsnsion about this subject. He hau examined the provisions of the Constitution, aad it was his opinion that the Judge to be e lected in the place of Judge Caldwell, would hold his office for ths full term of five years. Judge Birchard differed frpm this view. It was the design to elect one Judge each year, and, if n vacancy occurred, it was to be fillled for the balance of the unexpired term only. He was clear upon this point. It was finally agreed that the nominee should oe lor me vacancy, oe u !or one year or nve. Mr. Pugh withdrew the name ol Judge Nor- ris, and Gov. Ifood was also withdi awn. The first ballot resulted as follows : Warden, 118 Leland, 95 Searle 31 Hedges. IS No choice. The name of Judge Searie was withdrawn.

Ab they have had the benefits of their several offices, it was generally thought proper that they should meet the expense ot the com ing campaign. No one was enthusiastic or drunk enough to suppose, (or a moment, that, with the exeeplion of Judge Kennon, any of them could be elected. They were considered 'good enough Morgans,' till after the next sec ond Tuesday of October. BBSOLCTIOBS. Senator Jewett, of Muskingom, reported a long airing of resolutions Here they are, in ull : Resolved, That the Eighth of January is an anniversary which the Democracy of Ohio are proud to honor, not only for the illustrious mili tary achievements of Andrew Jackson and his companions in arms forty years since, but be cause the events and results of that day will always be associated in the minds of the Amer ican people with the courage, pat iotism, and purity which characterized the civil career of ihe Hero of New Orleans.

' Resolved, That we will labor for the (lection of a Democratic majority in the General As sembly of Ohio, pledged to the following meas ures: 1 , A law withholding the remedies of our Slate courts from -uch banks or bankers aa re fuse to pay their la xes according to the Con stitution and laws of Ohio; and forbidding the Bute Tieasurer or County Treasurer from re eeiving the notes of such banks or bankers in payment of taxes. 2. An exercise by the General Assembly of the power granted by the Constitution, to re strict tbe taxation by ihe authorities of cities and incorporated villages, a well as of county commissioners, thereby preventing the abuse of such power. R solved, That we recognize in the Demo cratic Administrations, State and National. fearless(l) consistent and patriotic auxiliaries in the above and kindred measures of Demo cratic policy, and therefore worthy of the con fidence and support of every Democrat. Resolved, That we present to the Democra cy of Ohio the above nominations, as a ticket fully deserting at triumphant election in Octo ber; and to their success and to the asc dency of Democratic principles involved in their elec tion, we pledge ourselves and those whom we represent, in (he awafjaK campaign of 1855.

Pending s motion for the adoption of the res olution Col. Sawyr lose and sair1; He was an old D. raocrat. For the last twenlt -five years, with one or two exc pi ions, s had a tended the State Conventions of the pariy. He had listen ed to .ne reading of the resolutions. So far as ihey went, ihey were well enough, nut thty did not go so far as the time demand. We see ihe Banks of Ohio falling to pieces. He did 1101 charge that every Bank waa conducted on dishonest principles, He was sure some of them were fairly conducted, but the whole system of Banks is wrong. This Convention should boldly denounce and war upon every thing of the kind, and a resolution to that end should be passed. Again, the Convention does not denounce the Know Nothings ss it should do. We have it thrown in our face that Mr Adams, a Demo era' ic Senator from Mississippi in Congress, has introduced a bill to prevent tbe naturalisation of foreigners till (hey have resided here for twenty-one years. This is all true, and for eigners are pointed to it as an example of Dem ocratic policy. He was opposed to this bill, and he thought the Democracy of Ohio ahould enter its protest against BV. He had drawn up a resolution for this purpose, which he would send to the President of this Convention. The rp solution was then read, as follow: Resolved, That ths Convention enter their solemn protest against the principles of the bill lstely introduced into the United States Senate bv Mr. Adams, in relation to the naturalisation ol foreigners. 15.
