The Know-Kothing National Convention— Millard Fillmore for President. The Know-Nothings have taken the initia tive of all other parties in trotting ont their nag for the Presidential eouise of 1856. Vith MiLlibd Fillmore as their cbosen leader, they ' are first in the field After tbie or four days of rows, a rangling and bitter contention in their National Council and Convention, and after the secession of finite a number of the delegates from Ihe free Slates, those friendly to a distinct national organization and early nominations carried the day, and ihe result ia be lore us. The name and character of Mr, Fimmose arepietly woll known to the country. Though a man of mediocre abilities aud limited attain, me u Is, he has yel considerable good sense and discretion. Upon the subject of slavery he is conservative, and when at the bead of the Government, and charged wiih its responsi bilities, he endeavored to live up to the re quirements ol the Constitution by doing jostice lo all sections of Ihe country. Aa actine President, upon the decease of General Ta. lor, he gave the influence of his administra tion to the passage of the compromise meas ures, ro called, ol 1850, which were .0 bitterly opposed by the Abolitionists. He not only signed the 'Fugitive-slave law," but he vigor ously enforced it. During his Presidency the viulsol Abolition wrath were as freely poured upon bis head as we have siuce seen them iuischarjied ot General Pikros and Senator JJou.i.s. lie was called uy the teettonaliste M"11 kinds ol opprobrious names. Iheiropposi- lion was so strung lo him in his own party, thai wnen me qursuon ot nis renuminatioii lor President came up at Baliirnt.re, in 1852, he was delealed, and General Scott nominated in his sleud; ill fact, in Ihe adjustment of the slavery question Ins main support come hum the National Uemucruc). The great mass of the Northern Whigs opposed it. In this lotcighii aud domestic policy, aside from slavery, he was mosl unsuccessful. Great Irauds and peculations were commuted upon Ihe Treasury, which was loo.-ely guarded, while his tone toward those naiiuus which had insul ted our flag was low and unworihy of the dig nity of our country. Still, notwithstanding these gren.1 fan lis of hw foiuier Administration, Ihe National Know-Nulhiugs could not proba bly, lor their cause, have made a better nomi ualiun. He is the strongest man. Hundreds ol thousands Oi Old-tine Whigs, Who have given bul a vuu, -approval to the Colored-Re-publiCAo organization, and who are riisgusied lit, ita excessts, wul rally around Mr. Fill fork's standard.

At a uispassioiiaie observer or (he field ol politics, we think ihe sehe iou of F li.nosk a Irump turd apou tbe pari ol the National Know Nuvhiiigs. It will be u perfect bomb shell in the tump of Ihe Btack-Kepubli&ns, who bale him lor signing the Fugitive-slave Law. Mr. Fillmore was born in 1300, in Cayuga Couiuy, N. Y., and is, therefore, fifty-six years ol age. He was (or a number of years a mem be i ol the New Yoik Legislature, chosen by ihe rtnti Masons, then predominant in Western New York, where Ihe Ex P esident resides. In 1831 he was elecloj to Congress from ibe Lull'.ilu I) is. net, and served three or lour terms, iu 1841 he had attained such a position iu his party thai he was placed at the head of the Committee of Ways and Means the most important iu tbe House by the big bpeakei, Joi.n V iiitk, ol Kentucky. In 1844, dunuij the Clav Piesidciil.ul campaign, trie Whigs of fV-w York nominated him for Gover nor. His Democratic compelitoi was Ihe dil Iniguished ata.esman, Silas Wriuiit, wlu leal him (.Fillmore) by ten thousand majority. In 1847, owirg io a division in the Democ racy of Now York, i illmoro w as elected Slate Controller by a large vote, In 181M he uas uomiiiuled by the Whig Na tional Convention at Philadelphia for Vice President, Willi General Taylor for President. Uy Hit death ol General Taylor iu July, 1850, he, by the piovisiona of IheX'oiisl it u lion, be came the Presidtut. Discourse while Execu tive of ihe naiioi we have above already de scribed. For the last twelve months he has been traveling iu Europe. e simll look wan some interest to see Ihe names of ihe delegates from Ohio who seceded upon his nomii.atiuii. Tom Spoouer and other Lilacs-Republicans are doubtless at the head ol them. The Vice President nominated, Andrew Jackson Donaldson the "ass in the lion's skin'' ia veiy unfor'.unate. He has no qual ifications or p litical standing for the post. He wss a Democrat up to within the lasi two or three yea is, imi, not ouiaiiiing an oitice undar Geiieial Pierce's Administration, lie be came a renegade. He has no polilical princi ple. Kenneth Rnynor, of North Carolina, would have been a far stronger and belter nomination. The strength ol Ibis ticket it is' difficult now lo estimate. It is probable, however, that if, by any mis fortune, the choice of the next President should be thrown into the piesent House of Representative?, where ihe vote would be taken by Stales, Fillmore would be Weaker than any Black-Republican. Th next nigauizaiion ohich comes Into the field with a Piesidenliul candidate is the Dem ocratic, which nominates in this city early in June. The Black-Republicans meel on the I7ih of June, at Philadelphia, fo; the some purpose. We do not think the result can be doubiful. Both wings of the allied force ol fanaticism aad bigony will be badly beaten. The na tional, Union-loving, liberal spirit ofthe coun try will bt embodied in tt Democratic candi date, and we expect to see him borne into the Pr.sidenlial chair upon a wave of popular en thusiasm that will equal, if not surpass, the great triumph ol 1852.
