The one which adjourned a few days since was assembled professedly to ignore all the good results which had been obtained tlnriit ir four years of war, and sanction the course of exc- i cutive policy which the admiiiistra-! tions of Tvler and Buchanan fail to furnish any p.irellel. It represented no party but the Southern rebels w ho had fought against us, and their Northern allies who had done all in their power to assist them. The Con vention which assembled there yes terday presented a striking contrast to thisdisloyalgathering. Itiscom posed of men jVom the South, the tried men -who stood by the Onion Hag during the war, of that class whose devotion was often rewarded with death. The unanimous senti ment which they utter, is that unless speedy assistance comes to them from ( 'ongrcss. I'nioiiisut and loyalty in the South will be in a far more perilous condition than it was before the war. In the iterson of Hon. Thomas J. Dur.int, who has been chosen temporary chairman, they have a man who has always proved himself faithful to his country. Al though once a slaveholder in ew Orleans, he early accepted the new condition of things.and when the first movement was made in Louisiana to establish a free State government, Mr. Durant held tiieollice of Chair man of the Free State Committee. Not the least noticeable fact is the enthusiastic welcome which, under the nuspicics of the Select and Com mon Councils of the city, the whole loyal people of the city have extend ed to the'niembers of the convention. The spontaneous gathering of the i loyal and (rue statesmen of the North to advise with ant! encourage their Southern brethren will have its in fluenec. It will show that, in 'spite of executive patronage and a pomp ous allegiance to the Constitution on the part of the President, the great heart of the nation beats in sympa thy with them, ami will not fail to make its pulsations felt during the coming elections. We have no ap prehensions that this convention will raise the price of rebel bonds, or encourage massacres in ourSoutliern cities. There will lie no disgusting exhibitions of fraternizing with un repentant rebels, or advocacy of a blind forget fulness of the past with out any security for the future. This convent ion cannot fail to constitute an era iuthe history of the settlement of our national diflicul ties. It will be the first lrce untraiii nielcd utterance of the popular sen timent, coming from the South since the termination of the war, ami it will be accepted as such by the peo ple of the North. It will have its inllucnce during the coining elee ons, when it w ill show the President that he is neither omnipotent, nor is Mr. Secretary Seward oinnicient; that in their attempts to betray Un people who have trusted them with oflice and loadetl them with public honors, ami to exalt rebels to ollice and crush the Union sentiment of (he nation, they will iguoininiously fnil.
