w ? - ? ??? w- ? r ?? W A SHIWOTOW CIT J: FRIDAY J??e 6, 1S36 SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union says, in reference to)the Brooke and Samner affair, that? ?' Every mail from the North brings dence that good citizens are being awakened to the perception oftbe fsctthat political jug gler* are using the recent affair in tbe Senate chamber between Mr Brooks and Mr. Sum ner for their own personal and political ad vancement" The Inttlfigeneer, in speculating upon the probable nominee of the Cincinnati Conven tion. says: 44 Whoever tbe fortunate individual may be, we sincerely hope he may be a man of character and virtue, and, if he should reach tbe chair of State, that he may prove his sense by transferring, as his very first act, all the absurd planks of his platform to the lumber of his gairet." Both Union and Inttlligeneer are devoted mainly to the proceedings of the Convention. THE CINCINNATI CONVENTION. | EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE ] Cixciknati, June 4, 1856. This morning finds the Convention but fair ly organised and prepared to proceed to busi ness, if, indeed, it can be called organised until the New York question has been de cided ; that being yet in abeyance. The sessions of the Committee on Creden tials, before which, as in 1852, the New York question has been argued, have been most in terestinl? the four orators (two cn a side) spaaking before it, being gentlemen of great forensic ability. Gov. Seymour and L B. Shephard, Esq., of New York city, are the orators for the Softa, and Beardsley and a gentleman whose name I have forgotten, those for the Hards. It is undeniably true that the result of this discussion has been to create a very unani mous public opinion in behalf of the Softs. Perhaps this has been, in some measure, owing to tbe discretion of their conduct in the pub lic places of the eity, and tbe frankness with which they have, from the beginning, pro claimed a willingness to bow to any decision of the Convention in their case, and their deter mination to sustain heartily the action of the Convention, be that what it may. The last argument before this committee took place last night. It is rumored this morning that the report of the committee will be in favor of admitting the Softs. Yet I am inclined to be lieve that the decision of the Convention will be in favor of excluding both?the question of the nomination being in part at the bottom of that policy. The discussions upon various points in the meetings of the Virginia delegation have been exceedingly interesting and able, the nomina tion question being really at the bottom of al most everything considered. The bare record of the proportions offered therein, and the votes upon them, will astound the Democracy of \ irginia when duly spread before them. The speeches never cau be, as they wero not reported. I shall probably have more to say on tbis subject Ai my return home. The dis cussions in tbe Tennessee delegation have also been animated and earnest. A very determined effort has been made to secure the Vice Presidential nomination for Ex-Gov. Aaron V. Brown, which has been the subject of very general comment here. I have no idea that Mr. Brown can succeed. At present, opinion here runs strongly in favor of General Quitman, because he has in dignantly spurned every approach that looked to getting him to bargain for the nomination. With all my indisposition to his peculiar views upon the subject cf our foreign relations, his course here has been so manly and high toned that I trust he will be the Vice Presidential nominee. Such a man in such times is, in deed, valuable to tbe public service, I carc not what may be tbe peculiarities of his poli W. D W h Book Notices 'lax Spabrowsrass Papers ; cr. Living in the Country.

A3HI50T0N W*Wi AND OOSSIF Mr Buchanan Nominated.?By reference io our telegraphic news in another column, it will be seen that in the Cincinnati Conven tioo. this morning, on the seventeenth ballot, the Hon. James Buchanan, of Penniylrania, was nominated as the Democratie candidate for the Presidency, baring received 296 votes. Frightened by their Falsehoods ?The Black Republicans are evidently becoming alarmed by the indications of the forthcoming reaction which never fails to follow upon the heels of misrepresentations soch as have been made in relation to the Sumner whip ping. The New York Tim*s snuffs the danger afar off, and in its Wednesday's issue attempts to retract some of its untruthful statements. It says : *? The testimony taken by the committee, while establishing conclusively the leading features of the assault, tends, in some inciden tal particulars, to relieve Mr. Brooks from censure which the reports of the caso elicited and justified." The leading " features of the assault" are made up of the single fact that Mr. Brooks chastised Mr. Sumner with a hollow gutta perch walking stick Again the Times says : " But in another particular the testimony corrects statements that have been current to the discredit of Mr. Brooks. It has been re ported generally that his first blow prostrated Mr. Sumner, and that the subsequent blows were inflicted while he was down. This is disproved by the evidence." The Times then goes on to make an admi^ sion which is more important than all. It is in these words : " His fall, so far as appears, was caused by Mr Brooks' jerking him down ; and after the fall, it seems clear that no blows were struck.'' So that Sumner, instead of being knocked down, was, as Senator Iverson testifies, pulled dowu by the lappel of the coat, and was not struck after he was down. In another part of the article in the Times, it is intimated that, had it not been for " a desk between Brooks and Sumner," another head than Sumner's would have been cut and bruised. This is the portion to which we allude : ''Mr. Iverson omits all mention of an im portant fact Ftated by every other witness, and quite essential to the truth of the case, namely : that a desk was between Brooks and Sumner at the outset, aud that this, of itself, would very greatly impede any effort that Mr. S. might make to defend himself." So that, at last, in this whipping business we have these conspicuous facts : First. Brooks did not disable, or paralyse, or blind Sumner by the first blow, and thus the latter was left in condition to use his pro digious muscular strength to the extent his manhood and courage prompted. Second. Sumner did defend himself, and was whipped instead of whipping his antago nist Conviction ?Information has been re ceived at the Pension Office of the conviction, at St. Louis, Missouri, on the 4th inst., of Marcus A. Wolf, for the forging of land war rants. He is said to be a wealthy banker in that city. In the House, to-day, about fifteen mem bers were present. After a minute's session, an adjournment till to-morrow took place.

[BY TKI.BGKAPn. ] FOURTH DAY. CisciM5ATi, June 5.?The Convention reas sembled at 10 o'clock this morning. Mr Stevenson, of Kentucky, rose to make a report from the Committee on Credentials The Committee had not agreed, but repre senting the majority of it, as he did, be whs ready to read the same if the Convention pleased, when order was restored. He claimed the indulgence of the Convention whilo he spoke the sentiments by which the majority had been actuated. They had given three days attention to the Case, and had heard both parties claiming the seats; after the able arguments from both sections, and that party had agreed to stand upon the noble platform of the Convention, and had pledged the honor of both sections to unite and make common battle for the nomi nee of the Convention, it was lamentable that the great Democracy should be rent by dis sens:ons, but they have passed away, and both have agree ! to bury the past in oblivien, uni ting on the last two platforms adopted in New York State. Mr Stevenson then read the report and pre amble, as modified, recognising the Softs as a regularly organised portion of the Democratic party and tho Hards as an organized body? Resolving, That the two sections be now consolidated ; that the Softs have twenty-four delegates and the Hards twenty-six delegates, and that the minority shall not be overruled by the majority. Also resolved, That the delegates be allow ed to register their votes on the platform. Senator Bayard, of Delaware, as chairman of the committee, was bound to make a mi nority report. The minority felt that they had no right to make the distinction between the delegations, but admit both with equal representations [Immense applause. ] It the committee had been forced to mako the state ment which leads them to this conclusion the}' regretted it, but could not flinch from the duty. fhe report reviews the action of the commit tee, and goes into an argument to show that the Hards are the regular Democracy and the Softs teceders, sometimes acting together and at other times separate. The report concludes with the following resolution : * Resolved, That the two delegations from New York be authorised to select each thirty five delegates, and that the seventy delegates thus elected be admitted as the delegations of the two sections of the New York Democracy to this Convention, and that they be allowed one hour to report their selection; the two delegations to vote separately ; each party to be entitled to seventeen rotes ; the vote of the State to be cast by cach alternately by the two delegations, the Softs casting the rote first. [Immense cheering ] Senator Bayard said that in the resolution proposed by the minority, as before the Con vention, not one word was said to create any bad leeling in either section, but to put them on an equal footing. The Sifts had thus only since last January stood on the national plat form, and the only claim to give them supe riority orer the Hards was that they had a T?te on the Abolition platform and when local matters farored their ticket. Mr. Butler, of Mass., thought the Conven c*l?*d upon, after the delibera York n-2511Comnaitte?? to discuss the New Jiw.ua.mn1?! ? u dMir*d< without further l E^T?L>?\in?Hard? lh* *l*?ntag. of l81?irht^inli^..,n01'V1)?

After mucn confusion, consequent *p0n the maay points ot order raised, during wnieh the lobby men ru.'hed in and took possession of the Convention? The main question, being on the resolution of the minority of tho committee admitting the delegations on an equal basis, was then put, and resulted as follows : Ayes?Maine 6, Massachusetts 3, Rhode Island 1.

Missouri 3, Arkansas 2, Michigan ft, Florida 3, Iowa 4?118. Florida declined voting. On the announcement of the vote the wild est enthusiasm was manifested, and deafening cheers resounded in the Convention and gal leries. Mr. Preston, of Ky , moved a reconsidera tion of the vote and to lay that motion on the table. A committee of five was then appointed to inform the New York delegations of the action of the Convention. The Convention then adjourned till 2 o'clock. AFTERNOON SESSION. ? At 2 o'clock the Convention reassembled; when Col. Preston, from the committee ap pointed tp inform the New York delegation of the action of the Convention, reported that they had performed that duty, and that the New York delegates were in the hall. Mr. Halit, of Louisiana, entered the protest of bis delegation against the majority and minority reports of the committee on creden tials. Mr. Mead, of Va , moved that New York be now allowed t*> vote on the platform. Carried unanimously When the vote was called, Mr. Ludlow rose and cast 17 votes for the 44 Softs" for the plat form entire. [Cheers ] Judge Bearasley then rose and east 18 votes for the platform entire. |Loud applause and cries for tho order of the day.] Mr. Mead, of Virginia nominated Hon. James Buchanan, of Pennsylvania Mr Harry Hibbard, of New Hampshire, nominated General Frank Pierce. Mr. Inge, of California, nominated Hon. Lewis Cass. Mr Richardson, of Illinois, nominated Hon.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE Georgetown, June ft, 1856. A heavy thunder storm passed over our city yesterday afternoon from northeast, ac companied by one of the most drenching rains we ever saw. For more than an hour, our streets in may places were completely covered by a perfect sheei of water. Severe as the storm was with us, we learn from persons from Virginia that it did not extend further west than tho Little Falls bridge. The Sabbath school excursion of the West Georgetown church to Fort Washington yes terday, was a very delightful affair. The fine steamer Alice C. Price, Capt Baker, which conveyed them down, was crowded, and every thing connected with the trip was of the most agreeable character The hand some present of the school to W. H. Edes, Esq., was presented by one of the teachers Miss Troy?in a very neat address, and re ceived by Mr. Edes in a very appropriate maimer. We learn that the beautiful residence on our heights, belonging to Mrs. Col. Caiter, and lately occupied by Mr Craiupton, the British Minister, has been rented by Mr. Sar tigea, the French Minister, as his future resi dence during his sojourn in the District. We can assure the public, on the authority of Dr Isaac 8. Lauk, the health officer of our port that the rumor which has got into cir culation that the patient who was taken from on board the barque Wm. Chase, lying in the stream below cur city, yesterday, was suffer ing from the yellow lever, is falsa. The Doc tor assured us this morning that he found no case of any kind of malignant fever on board. Merely as a matter of caution, however, the vessel will be kept at quarantine several days. We are not yet able to tell what effect the foreign news by the Niagara will have upon the flour and grain market) Doubtless it will tend somewhat to unsettle, and somewhat depress them.
