The delegates from the various districts in Ihe county, assembled in full force, every pre fcir.'cl being represented, at Town Nail on Wed tiesday afternoon, and proceeded to .tlic dis aptch of the business for which they were con vened. Sherwood llawley, Esq., was chosen president, and Geo. W. Lawrence aud Capt. T. W. Devane appointed Secretaries. The two thirds rule was adopted in making the nominations and the ballots resulted as fol lows. On the fourth ballot, riiilcmou Taylor was declared elected, under the rule and his nomination was then made unanimous. His .nomination was for clerk of the County Court. Upon the second ballot Thos. J. Minis was kiomiaated for clerk of the Superior Court, and :liis election to the candidacy afterwards made unanimous. The good grace with which the several candidates submitted to the action of the convention is most commendable, and is fully appreciated by the party, to whose wishes they have sacrificed their personal inclinations and to whose behest they hare submitted with out a murmur, although we consider one of Ihem as having some cause for complaint. The Secretaries' report will be found in -another place.

There aro one hundred thousand German inhabitants in the city of New Y"ork. They have upwards of twenty places of public worship, npwards of fifty schools, ten bookstores aud five printing establishments, a German theatre, German opera, and matinees and soirees musical innum erable. Many Germans are engaged in me chanical arts, manv are nvactical furriers, sur gical instrument makers, manufacturers of pi anos and fancy articles, grocers, bakersr con fectioners and hotel keepers. There are sev eral German daily, weekly and monthly news papers. The New York Staats Zeitnng, from which we gather these facts, has 18,000 daily subscribers. The character of the German merchants in New York is said to stand high. During the last year, according to oor Ger man contemporary, the direct trade with Ger- many from New York employed in its marine a tonnage of upwards of 99,000, numbering 152 .arrivals and 120 departures. There are six Jines of packets and two lines of steamships. The number of seamen employed was 3,547. "The valuation of this trade for the year was ,$13,193,284 90 of direct imports, and $6,567.--570-of direct exports- Tee indirect trade may iba assumed at a higher figure. The number of passengers arriving during the game time was 3 8,289. THE MARftiAGi: or Mr Alex.

In spite of their exertions, however, the democrats suc ceeded in carrying the day by triumphant ma jorities despite home bully ism and imported desperadoes. The Plug Uglies, a notorious band of Baltimore cut-throats, whose connec tion with the bloody massacres in that city at the Presidential election was so conspicuous, had been sent for aud came armed with HStoIs, daggers, b'udgeons and slung shot, while the k. n. councils in Washington had fully armed and instructed their own myrmidons, and all the details of the bloody fray coolly and delib. erately planned beforehand. 2'hese hired ruf fians attempted to take possession of the polls in the fourth ward, and being repulsed assault- 0 cd the democrats who ill a bodv had n8aenl. bled to poll their votes, when a desperate fight resulted which was kept up throughout the day.

A large number of Baltimore rowdies I consisting of Plug Uglies, and sundry other organizations, are known to have arrived iu the J early train. Their presence instigated to deeds ol violence the more disorderly ot our own citizens, several desperate fights took place iu each of the three wards above named. Pistols, knives and clubs were used with deadly effect, and several very seriously wounded. The rowdies procured a swivel, and taking it to the Fourth Ward polls, threatened to open a lire, if a certain body of foreigners were allowtd to vote. In the meantime, the Mayor I finding the civil force insufficient to preserve I the peace, requested the President to order the I U. fe. Marines from the barracks. An order was issued, and one hundred and ten Marines inarched with fixed bavonets to the spot "die rowdies assailing them with the vilest abuse and epithets. The Marines seeing that a swivel was about to be tired into their ranks, charged and took the deadly instrument. The crowd then tired on the .Marines from the side and front, and 1 one fell.

In the meantime the Marines were drawn up at the Depot, and fully prepared to receive them. The Marines having been on duty the whole day, the Secretary of War ordered the Light Artillery to come on from Fort McHeury, who are expected to arrive before 10 o clock. The mob have obtained possession of an other cannon, and threatened to destroy the houses of the Mayor and Capt. Tyler, of the Marines.

Milton was born at the Spread Eagle, Ureas street, Cheapside, December, 9th, 1608 and was buried November, 1674, in St. Gib's Church, Cripplegate, without even a stone in the first instance, to mark his resting place: but in 1793 a host and tablet Were set up to his memory by public subscription Milton before he resided in Jewin Gardens, Alders gate, is believed to have removed to and 1 kent school iu a large huse on the west side of Aldersgate St., wherein met the City of Lon don Literary and Scientific Institution previ ously to the re-building of their premises in 1839. Milton's Loudon residences have all with one exception, disappeared, and cannot be recognized. This is in Petty France, West minister, where the poet lived from 1651 to 1656. The lower part of the house is a chand lers shop; the parlor np Starrs looks into Sr, James' Park. Here part of "Paradise Lost" was written. The house belonged to Jeremy Bcnthatn, who caused to be placed on its front a tablet, inscribed "Sacred to Milton, Prince of Poets." In the same glass case with Shaks peare's autographs in the British Mnseum, is a printed copy of the Elegies on Mr King, the subject of Lyeidas, with some corrections in the text in Milton's handwriting. Framed and glazed irt the library of the late Mr Rogers the wet, hung the written agreement between Milton and his publisher, Simmons, for the copywright of his "Paradise Lost," Wills of Shakespeare, AIiltox axd Na poleon. The last wills and tesiaments of these three great men are tied up in one sheet of foolscap, and may be seen at Doctors' Com mons, London, in the will of the Bard of Avon is an interlineation in Ids own handwri ting; "I give unto my wife my second best bed with the furniture."

The undersigned were appointed, under' the second Resolution, an Executive Committee, with power to determine the time and place of the iiext meeting of the Association; and they have fixed the time for Tuesday evening, the 30th day of June next, and selected Warreuton as the place. The time, it is hoped, will lie generally convenient to Professors iu Colleges and to teachers; and the place is one of the most pleasant aud healthy towns iu the State, and accessible to allections. The citizens of Warrenton, through the un dersigned, tender the free hospitalities of the place to all who attend this meeting; aud the various Railroads of the State will pass all delegates at half their usual rates of fare. All officers of schools, of all descriptions, all teachers and all friends of t lie cause of educa tion will be considered as delegates, and to all such s.n earnest invitation is hereby given to attend. The Convention ot" last Fall was a great success, inaugurating a new era in the educational history of North Carolina, aid if the movement then so happily begun be prop-j erly followed up, it cannot but redound to the interests of the State, and to t lie profit of teachers. The first meeting was not onlvprofit- able, put pleasant to all who participated in its proceedings; and from the cheering indications all over the State, we hope to see a still larger gathering iu Warrenton, feeling sure also that nil will leave it as the delegates left Salisbury witb an anxious desire to be present Oil the or the govern ment of the Asso.'i;itio:i will have to be adopt ed at the meeting in June; a good deal of other important business is to be transacted, while lectures, addresses aud discussions on various topics will add to the interest of the occasion.

We have 13, OOli Comm.nuicait, and it is safe tojufer that there are 30,000- Presby terians, in principle in the State. Our Synod stands ffPth in the Union in point of numbers, and her membership is greater thau that of any Synod So.uth or West of Pennsylvania. Our sister States on the North and South, neither of which has a membership sj large as ours, publish the. Central, and the Southern. Presbyterian, for the benefit of their people. ' 'lhe time has come when the Presbyterian Church in North Carolina, should likewise do, her duty to her children. It is a conceded and I important fact, that hundreds of our members will take a State paper who. will take no other.

Our first appeal is to our own people to N. C. Presbyterians. Whilst we rely confidently 1 upon their favor, we trust that the native sous ol .North Uaroltna who have lounrt homes in other States, and the adopted citizjiis of our State who form so important an element iu our Ministry and membership will take a deep interest in this enterprise, and give it their Tkkms: s2 per annum iu advance, or ou tfe- livery of the first number: $2 50 in six months $3 at the end of the year.

As soon as 1500 subscribers are obtained, the first number will be issued. If a faithful and vigorous effort is made in the next two months by those who take a lively interest iu this work, we will without doubt, be able to begin the publication at the edofthat time with a paying subscription list ot" at least 3000.
