Sincn the elec tion, at a meeting of the Anti-Slavery Soci ety ("Inch urn attended by Gov. (Jnrdiiirr, and alsi) by the Lieutenant (lovernnr,) .Mr. Wilson has pledged himself anew to free dom. ATnetr A'uthing Cnnrfritinn. The House of Representatives met nn hour earlier than usual ycalcr. ny morning, and both branches of the Legislature adjounied early, in uriler to givo members an oppirtnnity to attend tho regular quarterly aestun' the Slato Council of tho order, which i held at the Methodist Church in North Russell street. Too Tele graph says : " The attendance is large, mid tho proceeding! cV-itmg. Symptoms of a rebcllln.i from tho " National" inllnonco of the leaders H apparent, especially m the re jection of the " third degree," concocted at Cincinnati, which proposes to expel every member who bolts a regular nomination." Uotton .Was, 7th. .Veir York. Wm. II. Sewaiw has been nominated for ro-i-loction to tho U. H. Hon ate by a Win? caucus, having received 7-1 votes out of HO cant. This nomination has been followed by a long and exciting debate in the House, which is not without interest t 1 people outside of tho Umpire State. In this debate K. N'ism was openly avowed by m few members, and tu tho heat of debate several interesting facts leaked out. One was that the K. N't! would violate their oaths, If they voted for Mr. Howard. This avowal came from the author Ileadley, n K. N. Whig heedless at that. Politically, and K. N'ically into tho bargain, he stands a fuir chance of soon being head-less. Tliis avow al was very properly met by a remark that if such oaths conflicted with tho official oaths of members of the legislature, they were not binding. It will bo inferred, cf course, that Ilcadlay is opposed to Seward ; but we must do him the justice to say that ho hon ored the antl-elavery sentiments of Seward, and based Ids opposition entirely on K. N. grounds. A Mr. Lamport (Iv. N. Whig.) di vulged another secret, which was that there had been, two weeks since " in a counting- room at tho foot ofStato Street," acauctisof certain tncnibf rs who pledged themselves not to vote for Seward ; but ho found to hit sur prize that matters had been "so well arran ged" that these men wcro about tu voto for Seward. It remained, however, fur a Mr. I'clty evidently in a great pel logo more fully into details lo wit : Ho said thcro wcro fifty members of this I loiuo who Here pledged tu tote against a certain man for United States Senator, but who had shamefully iolatcd their ntcdL'c. i Ho could never believe these men in a court of justice, even under oath. I.ul their names. said .Mr. 1'., be shroud fd in black, and take their places bolide ha of Benedict Arnold. Wo quote further ronurkablo revelations liiado on tho succeeding day : Mr. Rickcrson said, with regard to the foreign vote, ho know it hid becomo potent in politics that It had been, ,n fact, the bal nnco of power. Hut ho was satisliod to w hich party it had attached itself. The spe cious name of Democracy had attracted it. Much had bcon said about oaths. In lua opinion, tho moment tho constitutional oath of members had been subscribed to here, all other oaths wcro hanibhed. Thcro was a talisinanic power in tho constitutional oath, which cast off all other hackles, and ho Mood here to honor too man who respected his oilicial oath so highly as to throw aside nil partisan oath. Mr. It. said he once lean cd toward Silvor-Cirayism, so called, but when he came to see thu position that sec tion was taking with reg.ird to tho great question of Slavery, ho abandoned it, and took his plaeo with Connecticut, Massachu setts, and the whole North, lie believed that V. II. Seward was tho only truo man to whom tho State of New Vork could look with full confidence for a true representation of its sentiments in the National Council. It had beciibtatcd that influences had been brought to bear lor Mr. Howard. No ap proaches nan uecn iniuo ot mo kii.ii to mm, and ho believed if there had been tu anyone else, they would have been hurled back with scorn, Hut there had been influences brought to bear upon members tu vote against Win. II. Howard. He himsclt had received in structions to vote so, but ha preferred to withdraw himself Irom the organization I which instructed mm. Mr. Wygaut: Were you not read out, ex pelled? Mr. Rickerson procoolcd, naying that he joiued tho organization without knowing its principles, and as soon as ho learned them, j nnuiiig mem contrary to 111s own, lie with- . . , Mr. Uigh roso to a question or pnviUgo, and read fcoino letters from American Asso- cialious directing '' Drothor C.

Mr. Rhodes asked if tiio atgnaturc wcro Mr. Leigh said ihey wcro attested, refer ring to tho seals they contained, which seals 'were a disgrace to the name of Hancock" tho ' Amcr.can Flag," &c, which names they bore. Mr. Petty rose to a point of order. This I was no question of tinvilcire. This I.eiis. ' iure in.iiucieu its. representatives, and so uo no constituents ot members here.

It was this high-handed act which drew down upon tho order throughout the Slate an overwhelming contempt Mr. Hickcrson hero rose to a question of uririlece, and read a letter from a council of nhich he (Mr. 11.) had been a member, and from which ho hnd asked a card of with drawal. The Icltrr states that he would not be allowed to withdraw, hut that he would be expelled; and besides that he would be burnt in elhgv. It also said it was intimated that he I Mr. It 1 had been hour-fit wi h mon ey. Mr It. said it was not necessary lor him to denv aiiyllnhi? m this letter. A Iran who would write such a leiter to annlhor, Mr. It. tlioiisht ws unworthy so much atten tion. Hut he would here say that he would dicharpe his duty without rega d to any consideration, pecuniary or otherwise, It i pretty clear from all this that In N. Vork, as well as in Massachusetts, the ma jority of tho K. N's will not come in collis ion with tlio onti-slavoty sentiment, and Mr. So ward will therefore be elected. Ho is, probably, the ablest man in the Senate thoroughly equipped, whether it be a.1 n statesman toprasp the broadest question, or as a politician tu manage tha smallest details of party tactics. Ho is also tho head of tho phalanx in tho Senate on which tho friends of freedom must roly to resist the aggres sions of Slavejy albeit he is not ultra, or in any degree unreasonable on that question In the present aspect of public atfiirs, and with a Si nate composed, as it is likely to bn. Wii, II. S&wjinn cannot be spared, in our opinion. Vet, truth to speak, wo havo never recovered from the shock which Mr. Seward gave us, when he appeared to court tho cath one voto ol ISeiv iorK. souiu years ago, the very ollenco which now secures tho K , N. wrath, entertained by the minority of the New Vork legislature. As a political move, it was ssgacic us and effective, terribly wounding the locofoco party. As a mallet of principle, wo never could tolerate it ! ond from that day to this, wo havo repudiated, for otirself, tho title of " a Seward man." So far we sympathize with tha tnino'ity afore said. But in dangerous times a great lead er ijiuH not bo cut off Irom public service even for a great fault. Wm. II. Seward Elected Scna ator.

It is an improvement in several re spects upon K. N'ism, and between them both it is to be hoped that matters may be arranged so that men who sympathise in the main with their views, so far as just and practicable, and who yet will neither sur render their personal independence nor sub- j mil to secret councils, uuy co-nprato with them to a good end. The signs of the times ant by no means unfavorable. As injicatod in Massachusctss, New Vork and Ohio, tho multitudo who ham been induced to join tho K.
