[/'Vom the Carolinian.] T*ic Democracy ol* New YorU. TKo AVliior nrpusps of t.ho flontli. far *lir? past few weeks, have been revelling in the luxuiy of an opportunity to denounce the Democratic party nt the North. Coalition?coalition of the Buffalo platform? has been announced as the result of the ??*.w vvu fvuiiuai */* uiu nt ivuiiii;, Now York; but we rejoice to say they nrc disappointed. The main body of the Democratic party of New York have resolved to adopt no platform but tlie ancient one of the nartv. embodied in the resolutions of tlic Baltimore 6Yonv ntion. These resolutions hold to the doctrine of non-intervention?denying the right of Conorres.s to legislate on slavery, leuvmcr Iho subject whore it rightfully belongs, in the hands of the peoplftwirhcn organizing u State Government. Wc are glad there has been no coalition , it increases our faith in the republican principles of the groat Democratic party, and gives us an earnest that it is alone by the consolidation of this party the South will be secured against legislative aggression. If the true exponents of Democratic principlOvS unite upon the safo ground of non-intervention, they will leave the Whigs of the North and Free toilers to Imt the air in impotent rage at the fail urc 01 ineir attempts to create sectional strife. We will endeavor to make up a correct abstract of the proceedings of the two conventions. The Free Soil Convention passed the following resolutions, and sent them to the Hunker Convention: "Itcsolvcd, That the views of this convention on this subject are us follows: "1. It is not questioned or disputed that Congross has the power over slavery it* the District of Columbia. Z. It is not questioned or disputed that Congress docs not possess the power ovor slavery in the United ^States. "3. The power of 6'ongress ovor slavery in the territories of the United States is questioned ; this convention holds that the Federal Government possess the leg is.in*ivo power over shivery in tjic tovritorics, and ought to exorcise it, so as to prevent the existence of slavery there." Aftor tho reception of these by the Hunkers, and a protracted discussion, that body sent back the following to be appended tfl^je above: "4. Resolved, Although such arc the opinions we entertain upon this important question, and which we feel it to be a conscientious duty to main^jin to the utmost, linlnua n/1 ittini-fi.trt niwl tin uutv^a vwiif yJi turii iiijuouuv miu miconstitutionality, wc have never sought to impose them on others, still less havo we mado an acquiescence in our views oC.thc subject a controlling test in ?n election, as has been unjustly charged upon us. The annals of our party proceedings may safely be challenged for the proof that such test has been advocated by us. Wc havo neither mado such a test, nor will wc submit to it when made by others ; nor can tho Democratic masses of the State be induced to sustain those who do either. "Tn t.hn miirit. nnrJ saiisa of fl>r> TT?i<?n "J w* v resolution, above set forth, we have subnutted to your committee the foregoing modification of the last resolution of your convention, and if your committee shall agree with us in that proposition, we will reoommcud it for adoption to our convention." This was rejected by the Froe Soilcrs, and the following resolutions were sent to the Hunker's Convention: "Jtcsolvcd, We cannot accept the prop osition of the convention sitting at the Presbyterian church, to unite upon the grounds suggested by them. "Resolved, Wo respectfully request the opinion of that convention as to the pow?>r of Congress in prohibiting slavery in the territories." Both of these resolutions were laid on tho table, and the following adopted by the Hunkers: ".Resolved, That the power vested in Congress in regard to this subject is a controverted question among the Democrats, and we will leave everv man to the enjoymont of liis own opinion upon the subject." The Frcj >S'oil Convention rejected this, passing a resolution to the following effect : "That vrtt Cannot accept tho proposition of the committee of the convention assembled at the Presbyterian church, to unite upon the grounds which they propose to rocommend their convention, viz: that Congress has no r>ower in the State whore slavory exists; that Congress h:is power over slavery in the District of Columbia ; that wo believe the people of the North arc opposed to its introduction into territories now free; but we will not make it i party test, or add it to our political platform." They thon sent a communication to the HuUkere, transmitting u series of resolutions in substance as, follows: "We do approve of the recent resolutions adopted by the Hunkors, so far a* expressed in opposition to the extension oi slavery; but we cannot adopt them as a free exnression ofonifrirui An that suhip^f 8atis6cd that there is such on agreement in favor of the principles of human free dom aa demands the reunion of the D?mocrU/tj of New York, it in proposed tc unite in one body, making ft single organization throughout the State, and recommending the support of the single State uckoi ior election, una transact buuii uiiiui business as may come before them." The Hunkers then passed the following resolution: "Resolved, That this convention decline concurring in these resolutions, and that j the president communioato this to tho Free Soilors, and inform them that we will adjourn sine die unless they will make further communication." At their next sitting they adjourned sine die, without yielding the principles of /A.. ; w>* .y. At the last sitting of the Free Soil Coni vontion a communication was received , from the Hunkers, staling that they had I 110 further business to communicate. In i consequence of the above, the )'iambumi era now consider themselves severed from ; the Hunkers forever. j "So much for the "disgusting coalition'" j on "the Buffalo platform." IIouo* to the . true Democracy of the Empiro State for their firmness in dinging to those princlI pies which have led them through many I u political storm to victory. Tho Free j Soil taction have received a rebuke which, wo trust, will not ho lost upon them, j 1 They have now no resource left but to go over hodv and pouI to l lu?.

The charge made against this gentleman, as Minister to Mcxico, for having refused to procure the release of some American soldiers imprisoned at Jalapa, turns out to bo false, as wp loam lrom tlic following, taken from the | Bultimore Sim: "The American prisoners at Jala pa, Mexico arc said to be deserters from the army, and so reported by Gen. Worth, ! and were imprisoned for outrages committed against the JAcxican laws. Of course then no blame attaches to Mr Clifford for not interfcrring in their boUr,lf ?? mui. CAPT. JiEE AND PAST MIDSHIPMAN WAKLEY. The Pendleton Mcnscngcr of last week con tains an interesting account of the proceedings of a meeting and dinner given in compliment of our countrymen, Capt.

THE ABDUCTION OF ItKY. We published Inst week tlie decision of the Court in this case, but it nssumeH a inoro serious aspect than any at first expected, and we w ill now give our readers n general ncconut of tho ease. Uey was a keeper of the prison at IIiiTana, in winch were confincd one Villa. verdu for a political offence, and Fernandez, n fraudulent bankrupt. It is alleged that theso prisoners wore released by Hey; at all ovonta the throe landed in tho U. States sometime last spring. Shortly after their arrival the authorities at Havana having leaniod that they were in Now Orleans, a communication was received by tho Spanish consul at that port, Mr. Don Carlos do Espann, enjoining him to seize the jK)fno!i of Roy, ami send him hack to Havana. Shortly after the consul obtains an interview with ouo Frc8car.es, nn ex-police officer, who declined having anything to do with the Hcizuro. Some days after a willing hvstni mcut is found in the person of Llorento, and with him is associated Ogala. Llorento takes upon himself to procuro lodgings for Key, the friendless stranger, and introduces him to tho Spanish consul, and his accomplice. Tho con sill viiits (lie boarding house of Roy, hut in I the alwence of the proprietor. Hey after this was induced to go to the house of tfcu consul, and a declaration in produced alledged to havo bcou made hy Rey. No ono can tell whether jt is genuine, and if genuine, what mean.-] wero employe^ toprocurothe signature of Rey, an the only witnesses wcro the consul and Llorcntc. It was Rey's intention to go to Vera Cruz, and up to a fow hourn of his embarkation on ino wary i<uon, una mipiioseu v> oc mn destination. KspRim fearing his victim might elude hit* grasp, visits the Mexican consul, and requested to Ihj apprized immediately if liey or Fernandez applied for passport* for Vera Cruz. ProI I )ku aumin wuru muiio 'ur xvujr n iiupunauoil, ana he certainly left in a very (strange manner, lie carried no clothing or baggage of any kind, did not cvon tell his friends furowoll, no not even hhn who had nursed him when hick, nor hbn who had supplied him with money; but at night, at tho moment of the departure of the Mary PJlen ho is launched on l>onrd. So far as wo arc competent to judge tho abduction was clearly mado out by the testimony, and the dcfbnce so fur from weakening tho case added strength. The. Mary Ellon carried out two passenger*, and we liavo no account of but one being landed at Havana; and the only inferrence n that ltey waa landed secretly. Wo do not believe that the American consul at Havana ever saw Key as was al lodged, but tlmt if he taw any ono in relation to this aflair, it was sonic creature who was made to personify Hoy. It is said tiiat Key has addressed two letters to our consul, faying that he was abducted and linked protection . and that the consul had demanded him, and the authorities hud refused to deliver him Up. It is now suid tha$ Commodore Parker has been Ecnt to llavaua to dch.aud Hoy in the name of our government. If tliis be true, and the authorities refuse to dolivcr Key, it must necessarily result in a difficulty between the Governments. We regard the Spanish consul as acting in tins whole affair as tho agent of tho Spanish authorities, and his CSovcrnment must bo rcHj)on-iblc for all his actd. MILITARY BOARD OF THE FIFTH Ml V lOlU^. Wc find in the Laurcn&villo Herald, the following items, embracing the Kubatancc of tlie Report of the Military Board of ihe 5th Division, assembled by order of bis Excellency, nt Union C.H:, fo - 'bo purpose of considering ccr tnm queBtioiH relative to the militia syHteni We published last weok a synopsis or tlio Re. port of a similar board of ( 1st Division: but the Herald has been furnished only with a verbal report by a member of the Board, and may therefore be depended on as correct. They report "that the only defect in the Military organization is the want of Brigado Encampments, and unanimously recommend their rcostul)li*hmcnt." That tho law as it now standu, in rcgnrd to the collcction of fines, is as efficient as it can be in ado, and recommend that the Sheriff filial* continue to l>o collector. They also report "that the present militia or organization it, not sufficient to meet emergencies promptly," but that they deem the con6truetion of .Arsenals unracccsdaiy* That one company of Cavalry, seventy privates strong, be cither selected from those now enrolled, or be raised in each i-Msirici in me oiaic, vrno snail DC annccl and equipped in tho most thorough and efficient manner, and rendezvous at I heir respective Court I louse. Thcso troops of Horse being designed more especially to act as a body of domestic police. That one company of Infantry be selected from each Regiment in tho State, who shall be armed and equipped with weap ons and accoutrements suitable for actual service. This would give an Infantry force of about four thousand men, -which, with tlic cavalry above named, say two thousand horse, would make a force of 6,000, wJl drilled, well armed and well organized troops, who would be ready, at all times, fcr immediate action. And like the ? *1-- : i uiai cuiuy, inning II1U iUt'JUUUn WUr, thoy would be most valuable in cnso of need, as a nucleus around which to form a larger force if it is reouired. It is recommended that thcao special troops be organised into a Division, with a Major General, and all accessary officers of their own clection-and that to anr.li Regiment in this Division, after it is formed be added and attached ono company of Artillery, in addition to Capt. Do La Torre,s company of Charleston Flying Artillery, to be attached to the Division. The Division including tho Artillery would then number nearly sevon thousand men. rm J f ? i* ? ^ * ** I / ewgraptica jor inc uaroCintan.J ARRIVAL OF THE CANADA.
