The Whig National Convention.
As our renders will sec, we have devoted a
large space to the proceedings of the Whig Na
tional Convention. The grand result is the nom
ination of (ien. Si ott for President and Wt
A. (Jbaium for Vice President It will cheer
the heart of every true Whig in the Union to
know, that after a severe struggle, the friends of
Mr. Webster and of President Fillmore, cheer
fully acquirseed in the final result of fifty-throe
ballotinga, and all tho delegates, from every part
of the country, unanimously " wheeled into lino"
by States, and gave the nominations a cordial and
hearty approval. May tho people at tho polls
givi it a like reception.
Our next Governor.
A committee appointed by tho whigs of Cole
donia County fur Uie purpose of expressing their
sentiments on Uie nomination of a successor to
Cov. Williams, who declines nnoUier election,
have expressed' their preference, in the last Cal
edonian, in favor ot Uie nomination of the Hon.
Krastus Fairbanks for our next (lovernar, and
accompany that expression with tho reasons of
their pn ference. Those reasons, m substance,
are, that in the northern part of the stato it is the
universal wish and exectution of the whigs that
the name of Mr. Fairbanks be presented to the
freemen of the State as one eminently wortbyi
and entitled to the suffrages nf tho entiro whig
party of the state that "all who have had occa
sion to transact business wiUi htm in his com
mercial relations, can but acknowledge him a
man possessed of practical good sense, unnoin
mon sagacity nnd cool, deliberate judgment; a
man of determined perseverance, considerate,
firm and indexible in Ins devotion to Wing prin
ciple" -i man consistent and unwavering in
his public and private profoMnons understand
ing Uie private wants ami interests ofcoiinnimi
tlos and individuals as well as the welfaro oftho
state n. man who lias devoted much til no and
a troll established and extensive iiillnence to the
promotion of Whig principles in Vermont and
our sister states, wiUi untiring diligence nnd
much success. These uro tho principle reasons
assigned by tho committeo, coiwisling of Messrs
15. A. CbIiooii, J. II. Dolano, C. S. Dana. II. S
HarUett, and Mordccsi Halo ; and they might
with the iiUnost propriety havo added, Mr. Fair
banks is, in the best seiute of the terms, a gen
tleman and a christian, and ill all respects qimhfl
ed for the oflico of Governor of the Whig state
of Vermont.
The Democratic Nominee.
Wo are sorry U seo some of our able and
houest whi-x editors, throning iiusitiles from tho
tip i ml of tho editorial quill into the lia'O and
eyes ol Franklin Pierce, the democratic candi
date for Prtsjideut. In our estimation it is bad
policy and in bad tnti). If (ien. Pierce has
been a little too free, occasionally, n illi the glass.
ami indiBcreit ui many other things let tlio
democrats tell of it nut the whit's. Frank
Pierce is a candidate not to be sneezed at, and
drunk or sober, the party w ill go fur him. As
whigs we shall have enough to do to heal Ui
div uiuus in our own wrty, and elect our own
candidate. We had much rather hunt up the
Iisrd sayings of the unlerrifled democracy of
New Hampshire Uian beapatler hiin with " faint
praise" in Vermont. What Isaac Hill said of
Gen. Pierce, in Uie N. II. Patriot of 18 111. is
worth more Uian a dozen ihou from hu political
opponents. Here is one of Mr. Hills opinions ofl
the man who is now the democratic candidate
fur tho Chief Magistracy of the Union :
"Frank Pierco commenced law buainess a-
bout tho year IS'-Hi, and boarded with his father
in Hillsborough, in that year ho mado tho old
gentleman so fur iiou-cumuuttal that his name
WMUum used as discountenancing tho senior
editor of tho Patriot, in his opposition to John
Qllincv Adams : heined and assisted the foilnrnl
lawyers of that day to call out Uio strength of
.... tiiui murc ug&itwi Aiiurew jacKfcon j niij
ii was not uiuu me close of tho year lb'J7 that
Uie sterling old patriot broke away from tho per
nicious influence of Ins dagenerato son,"
Tho " Union ll'hig" has ceased to print tho
laws by authority and supiwrt Damol Webster
for tho Presidency causo w hy it is dead, and
its editor for the present, is among Uie absen
tees. Kx-Gov. Henry Hubbard it the candidato for
Presidential elector in tho 4Ui district of New-Iluminhue.

tho Convention to desist from nny further nction

Mr A-bmun. When we cavilled about a
tcin-oriirv organization, I thought it was wrong.
Win n l saw you placed in that chair I was sor
r) to hi ur a protest entered against it. And I
regret now that, w hen a committee is ready to
report, there should be even a seeming opposi
tion to its reception and adoption. I havo held
no secret caucus with any body hero. All I do
sire is.that we may be prt pared logo into a nom

and r(Kind to the reHjrt of the committee, and
then en to-morrow we shall be ready to lmlen to

Mr Sherman replied.
Mr Holt- said if there was any opposition to
an orgnni7ittinn he did not participate in it. He
th n oH'oicd a resolution providing rules for the
ev eminent of the convention and the manner
of voting, the same in substance as that previ

The officers wero Uien announced from tho

A member of Louisiana delegation then intro
duced the Rev. Dr. Stocton, of St John's Church,
who pronounced an oloquoiit and beautiful ad
dress to Uio Throne of Grace, asking Uie bless

tion. The Convention then adjourned until 19. o'
clock. SECOND DAY.
TiiunsDAr, June 1721 P. M.
The Convention assembled pursuant to ad
journment at It! o'clock to-day. Rumors had
boon atloat up to that hour, variously affectin"
tho prospects of Uio several candidates. The
friends 0f Scott oamo into tho Convention full
of hope and with much confidence, while that of
Webster and Fillmoro seems not at all abated.
The galleries wero well tilled, and that appro
priated to tho ladies occupied UiroiHiout iu
whulo extent.
The medallion likeness of Henry Clay, pre
sented yestorday to the Kentucky delegation,
has been added to the decorations of the Hall.
An illustrated and very spirited sketch of tho
life of Gen. Scott was Ireoly distributed about
tho hall this morning, and seemed to engage
much attention. It is closed with a cut repres
enting a bowl of "Scott Soup," and labeled
"Fort George, Chippewa, Niagara, Vera Cruz,

Mr. Caboll, of Florida, tnovod that tho rules
of proceedings of the Houso of Representatives
be ndopted as the mips of this Convention, so
far as they aro applicable.
Mr. Cabell apjiealcd to tho convention first to
adopt rules for tho government of the conven
tion, and hoped they would adopt such rulos.
A discussion followed, in which Messrs.
Hrnndsford, of Ky., Davis, of Fin., nnd others
participated, urging, respectively, amendments
and arnumeiits. with a view to obtain order and
equality in the transaction of the business of
the Convention.
Al this staire of Iho proceedings a member of
the committee on credentials asked mat me mat
ter be passed by for a moment, that ho might ob
tain leave from the convention for the commit
tee on credentials to sit during the session of
the convention. They had been in session three
or four hours and had disposed of a considera
ble amount ol busincs. Leave was granted

rulca of tho House of Representatives, and a
regulation by whicb tlie voting ol tlio convon

ing a vote corresponding to that ol tlio electoral
vote of the seieral States.
Mr. Duncan, of La., moved tho following:
llesohed, That a committee, to consist of one
member from each State in the Union represent
ed in this Convention, be appointed, whose duty
it shall be to drnlt a series of resolutions, ex
pressive of the sentiments of the whigs of Uie
Union on the creat doctrines cherished bv them
or otherwise a platform of principles to bo
maintained by the whigs in the coming cam
ItnolreiL That the members of said commit

Ilcsolved That Uns Convention will not pro
ceed to ballot for, or otherwise nominate a candi
date for I'resident or Vico President, until said
committee shall havo reported and this Conven
tion shall have taken final action on said report
Mr. Van Trump, of Uhio, rose nnd objected
tu the introduction of such projiosit ions as these
at this stage ot the proceedings. He contend
ed that until the committee on credentials had
reKrted, there was no means of determining the
rightful action of this convention on this subject.
He Uiereforc moved the postponement of action
on these resolutions until Uie report of ihe com
mittee on credentials is made and adopted.
Mr. Duncan expressed his surprise at the evi
dent feeling of the gentleman from Ohio in his
objection lo uie matter proposed, lie saiu mat
the resolutions proiiused nothing determinate on

t.als. He wanted to a-certain something of the
sentiments of tins Convention He wanted gen
tlemen to show their bunds as he and his friends
were willing to show theirs He wanted to
know if their principles were his principles ; if
they had indeed in, t tu a band of brothers, and
if not, he wanted the cup of hope dashed from
his hps.
Mr. Ashman, uf Mass., thought it better to de
lay action on the rr solutions for Uie present
not to have action upon them whilst any consid
erable portion of the members of the Conven
tion objected, at this time.
Mr. Ceo. C. Morgan, of Maryland, moved
that 111 order to permit, tune for the committee on
credentials to report, the convention adjourn till
."i o'clock.
lly request he withdrew the motion.
A gentleman rose and expressed a hope Uiat
Uie gentleman from Iouisiana would not press
the third of the series of resolutions offered by
him. To the two former he presumed there was
no objection in the convention. And as the
gentleman from Maryland had withdrawn his
motion toiidjourn, he hoped that the convention
would proceed to tuke action upon the two first
resolutions, and tint the committee would be
a,,'rr. .1.., , .. .

I he quc.st.on vv.-is then out unon the first of
the resolutions offered bv the irciilleinaii Irom
Louisiana, ntvr rore, but upon Uie call of the af -
urinative, a vote by suites was called, and it re
sulted as follows :

Wisconsin, C. H7.
Tho above vote exhibits a heavy vote in favor
of the adoption of a platform, and that matter
may therefore be considered as a fait accompli.
The platform published in tho Sun of this morn
ing, and introduced below, is no doubt generally
approved by this voto.
Mr. Ilotts, of Va., rose to a privileged ques
tion, and moved the reconsideration of Uie vole
just taken.
An amendment was ottered to the second re
solution as follows:
" And that in the Bind committee each mem
ber to authorized to cast Uie vote to which it is
entiUed in the electoral college."
A lote was taken on the amendment, which
was adopted as followa :

exerted on Uie details of iho platform. The re

control ol tlie lareer and freo Stsirs.
On tho call of Uie Stato of Now York, .Mr
ivbiuuib oi uiat delegation stated that there were
six contested seats represented in tho Conven
tion, and asked bow those votes wero to bo lr.
tennined. The chair waived tho issuo at tho
time, and on the announcement of the vote, Mr
Kemble again rose and pressed tho question to a
decision, and moved lhat tho six votes from con
tested seats be stricken out.
After somo discuision the Chair announced
that it would savo a good deal of time, perhaps
to state that if tho six totes wero stricken out it
aaouiu noi uuer uie result.
-Mr Kemble asked, whether if they wero taken
rrom one side and put on Uio other it would not
change the result. Shouts of laughter.
Mr Kwing then roso and submitted tho follow
ing resolution aa n substitute for the second ro-s-oluuon
offered bv Mr lliiiipan r i
lltsolced, That tho committee shall' consist of
uiie uuiegato irom each state, selected by tho

This resolution the chair declared to bo out of

cond resolution. Tho mover evrtlriinpfl thn ilif.
