MONDAY. OKC 12.
The very unusual inclemency of the
weather prevented the prompt arrival
of many of the delegatee, though they
had seemingly allowed themselves time
enough to be'present at the opening of
I the Convention—about ISO, however,
appeared at 12 o'clock at the Athe
naeum, when Gen. Abner Ltcock, of
Pennsylvania, was called to the Chair
for the time being, and Mr. Thomas
P. Ray, of Virginia, appoiuted Secre

After attending to some preparatory
boaioess, and adopting a plan for the
organize! ion of the Convention, an ad

Henry Clay, on the subject which had
called'them together, the presentation

He accordingly handed it to the Secre

of the weather, you had proceeded to

I must have been entirely regardless
of passing events, if I had not observ
ed that mv name has been repeatedly
mentioned as being likely to be brought
before the Convention,* and that, in
some instances, delegates have been
instructed by their constituents lo
yield support to it. as a Candidate f.»r
the Presidency. This restriction, or
■ny restriction upon the perfect free
dom of deliberation and decision pf
the Convention, is inexpedient. It
would have had a more happy constitu

all who are desirous of rescuing the
Executive Government of the Union
from the misrule which threatens to
subvert established institutions and
at steins of policy, long and deservedly
cherished, and to bring disgrace and
ruin upon ihe country. So constituted,
' the Convention could have made a
comparative estimate of the many citi
zens of the United State* who are
competent to disiharge the duties of
jChief Magistrate, and selected from
among them that one who, possessing
the requisite principles, would proba
bly unite, to the greatest extent, the
public confidence and the public sup

an estimate and selection : and should

I have been very desirous to lay

dear air, with whom I have so often
had the happiness to be associated in
tha public council*, content to be the
organ of making them known, if ne

be proper or necessary to make the
