Reed and Ashman, of Mass., and Lane, of Ind., are among the arrivals to-night. f Mr; Blair, Sir., is here ' and leads the Bates interest, which is hopeful and earn est. ' They count up sixty votes on the first ballot from nine or ten States. - The highest calculation for Seward on the first ballot is ' 85 votes.' Cameron's friends, from Pennsylvania, are here in force and very clamorous. Ohio will probably lead for. nobody but Chase, but would accept Judge McLean or Mr. Wade- if proposed outside of the Stale.': - v r : ; There is not touch talk of Mr. McLean. He will apparently have but few voles, perhaps none. ' On the first ballot Mr. Seward will' lead, Mr. Bates will come next, and Mr. Chase will come third hav ing some New England voles. Mr. Cam eron will come next, and then Mr. L:ncoln. The latter is much pressed by the Illinois delegates, as a compromise candidate, and would be accepted by all the Northwest cheerfully. ' For President of the Convetion, Messrs. Ashman, Selden of Rochester, N. Y., and Cotwin, are most named. " '. -''- The Spirit in the South. i In reference to the course of the seced ing delegates at the Charleston Conven tion, the New : Orleans Delta of the 2d inst. says: ... - -I ' There is no need for them to entertain any doubts bf the manner in. which' their constituents will receive the news of their action. They will not be required to de fend their course or justify their acts before a disappointed or unsympathizing people. The demonstrations of joy exhibited by the Charlestonians, the congratulations offered to the seceding delegates for their manly and determined course, their firm and im pressive attitude, are only premonitory in dications of the electrical effect which the receipt - of the intelligence will . produce throughout the South. : j And - lays down the following pro gramme: r I .Let there be three candidates, a nominee of the Charleslon Rump, a candidate of the Constitutional party, suported by the whole South, and a Black Republican candidate; and provided each gets the vote of one or ' more . States Jess tuan . a ma jority, : the election , must, go into the House, and if the Constitutionalists can not win there, they have little hope of ever triumphing in the Presidential cootest.- Tha chief apprehension would grow out of the desperate stale of the Kump candidate. There would be reason to fear he . might not carry a single Stale, and thus would ruled pff the track. .-. .i . ; - i Besides being leap year, the present is to be an eventful one; its history will record the arri val of the Japanese Embassy, the Allied expe dition to China, the fight between Sayers and Heenan, the Presidential election in the United States, the visit of the Prince of Vales to this country, the settlement of the Italian Question, and a Revolution in Rome and Naples. . ' , The collapse at Charleston has so" thrown Democratic machinery out of gear, that the State Convention of that party has been post poned until the 4th day of July. Opening of Convention Week. Chicago is in a blaze of enthusiasm, and her. people iave-their latch strings out. We see ; by 4 the Chicago? Press of this morning that the mammoth' Wigwam was dedicated . on Saturday ."evening last, and was jammed full. The first speech was made by Judge Goodrich, of Minnesota, and the first Territorial Officer who set foot in Min nesota. R. M. Corwine, of Cincinnati, followed, then Mr. Cheeseman, of Califor nia, then Mr. Dickey," cf Pennsylvania, then Joshua R. Giddings. Among other good things Mr. Giddings said : My ' friend from Pennsylvania, ( Mr. Dickey,) has spoken' for that land. It is my' native State: V was "born in "Pennsyl vania, and I am always proud to be called a .Penusyvauian. I will add a word to what he has said.

For those old Western Reservers I was going to say I feel myself authorized to speak. . We have come here with our souls bap tised with the love of truth, justice and lib eity.

It is the principle, the rights of the people,those great, immutable, unchangabla truths, for which your forefathers and mine contended on the hundred battle fields pf the revolu tion.' We are fighting those battles over again.: Great enthusiasm. We stand by those truths, and we say those who stand by those principles will never stop to talk about men. My friends, I must con fess that although I am a young man, and in the full vigor of manhood, laughter I feel somewhat fatigued. I had no idea of addressing you to night. - .1 was prom ised that if 1 came here, and spoke to you two minutes,, or two minutes and a half, I might be excused. . .'; '. ' Mr. Eggleson, of Cincinnati, then spoke and was followed by Col. 'lieu ry S Laue, of Indiana", afterwards, : Gov. Morrill, of Maine, was called out, and the concluding speech by N. B. Judd,of Chicago. ; The Wide-A wakes were out in full force and bands of music, cheers and shouts fill ed up the pauses.. Thus was dedicated the Wigwam built by the liberality of the Chicago Republicans at an expense of sev en thousand dollars and tendered to the Convention. The Difference. It was truly a most unmerciful "snub bing" that the Southern Fire-Eaters gave the Northern delegates at Charleston. The latter were ready and willing to "eat the dirt" anxious to do so, and secure the aid of their allies in the race for power; but they wished to do it in a left hand way. Their powers of nice distinction are wonderful, and they discovered that their way of doing the thing was ."tweedleum," and that of the South was "tweedledee." Therefore teey proposed a "you-tickle me and I'll-tickle yon" arrangement. These are the two platforms : SLAVE CODE PLATFORM.

The south demanded a pledge of obedience at . the time, but the Northcners wished to evade this by prom ising obedience to the dictates of Chief Jus tice Taney, which would "in fact be the same thing.

'., . , More Citizens of Kentucky Outraged More Citizens of Kentucky Outraged--One Man Murdered and Fifteen More Exiled. i A correspondent of the Cincinnati Com mercial furnishes the following account of anew outrage by the slaveholders: - ; ."It; appears the origin of tho troubles grew out of some, or '. perhaps all of the expelled,: boing 'unwilling I to. join in the party fcr recapturing the "old man Bell," who was taken from tho Brandenburg jail by his two noble sons having first been kidnapped and taken from his home in In diana on a charge of enticing iway slaves, and because the expelled would not join the recapture part-, they have since been look ed on as boing anti-slavery. ; Some time since, lbs murdered man, an old resident, liberated his slaves. He was at once ordered to leave, but not having done so up to some Ihroo weeks ago, a druuken mob called at his house after night, (he silting quietly reading al his fire side at the time). He went out, was told that he must leave at once; bo refused, saying he had violated no law, and being on his own premises, should not leave, at the same time told them to leave, when he was twice stabbed, and died in twenty minutes. The murderer was arrested and let to bail at eight hundred dollars.. , Nine days since' fifteen of ,tbe citizens were or dered to be out of the county within ejgbt days, and have accoidingly left. A Man Robbed and Spirited away from His Friend. The Cincinnati Gazette gives the follow ing account of a singular occurrence in that city on Tuesday night last:- H . A German named Gaterleth has been, until the past few days, living in Green county, Ind.,' and came to this city in search of employment.. Four hundred and fifty' dollars had been intrusted to him for the purpose of delivery to certain parties re siding here. When Gaterleth armed in town . he stopped at a house on Front street, near Butler, and with the money npon his person he left the house last even ing, contrary to the advice of a. friend, for the purpose going to a theater. The next seen of him was on the square, lying on the pavement in a senseless condition, rendered so from the effects of a wound on the left temple and a stab in the right side. The truth flashed upon his friend in a minute, and feeling for the wallet which contained the money, discovered it gone. His friend then hailed an express wagon and preparing a litter, ordered the driver to convey the wounded man to the Com mercial Hospital, promising to follow him self quickly as possible. But when the friend of Gaterleth reached the Hospital, he was surprised to learn that nothing had been seen either of the patient or of the express wagon. Search was instituted, but up to 12 o'clock nothing could be learn ed concerning his whereabouts, or what disposition had been made of him. - . . Trick3 of the Trade. The'chivalry are not entirely free from some of the little peccadilloes which they are wont to speak of as characteristic only of the "close fis ted farmers" and "greasy mechanics" of the North. A correspondent of the Charles ton News writes as follows: It will be' recollected that before the as sembling of the Charleston Convention, the Railroad companies on the Northern lines required delegates to pay only one way. Many of the delegates from the Southwest and South came over Ihe Ken tucky, Tennessee, Georgia and South Car olina Railroads, believing that they would certainly be as liberal as the Northern roads, but it turns out differently, now that they have us in Charleston. Now; they issue a card slating that there was some misunderstanding' about the matter, and absolutely refuse to extend that liberality evinced by the Northern roads. ' ' . ' . ' - The South' in' future should cease to talk about Yanked tricks, for they have both on the railroads and in the hotels ex hibited a spirit of extortion and meanness that would disgrace any country. . Osb of the Broken Bonds. The Charleston Courier has the following in relation te one of the bonds of union among the Democracy at the Charleston Convention: . " 'A delegata' or 'delegation' is a suffi cient introduction to the public rooms or quarters of any one of the delegations, and the sprig of mint tastefully arranged in a liquid bouquet has been recognized as an olive branch by the representatives from Maine and California, and al the States scattered about between the geographical extremes. . The south furnishes the thirst, provoking' weather, and the North furnish es the ice, and' then Cincinnati gives the platform and the 'corn cordial,' aud Cuba gives the sugar, and Africa is frequently represented in the Ganymede who mixes and stirs the cup, and thus all find, at least one point ana principle or union ana con federation.. .' '" ' .'. j Perhaps if the liquor had been stronger, the bond might have lasted longer. away from His Friend. Murder at Wheatland--A Man's Throat Deliberately Cut. - A frightful murder was committed in the town of Wheatland Saturday night, or rather Sunday morning, between 12 and 2 o'clock. The victim was a man named Thomas Mclntyre, who was in the employ of Volney P. Brown. The murderer is John Biggers, an Irishman. Mclntyre was also Irish. The men were in compa ny with two others at Mumford, became intoxicated, and on' the way home, an al tercation took place between them, and Mclntyre and Biggers proceeded to fight. They clinched and Mclntyre was thrown Biggers falling upon him and retaining his ascendency. Two men in company are understood not to have interfered at first, but after a few moments of struggling on the ground, Mclntyre was heard to say "Let me up." Biggers replied "I will ;" but instead of doing so, drew from his pocket a large knife and deliberately cut Mclnlyre's throat wilh it. The wound was made on one side of the neck, from the ear downward, severing a large vein or ar tery, and Mclntyre died almost instantly, and before the bystanders could rescue him from the grasp of the of the murderer. The soberest man of the party immedi ately went back to Mumford and gave the alarm. Constable Phelps and Dr. Craig went to the scene of the murder and found the body of Mclntyre lying where-the homicide was committed. Pursuit was was! made after Bigger aud he wa3 fonnd a short distance from the- spot, lying by the side of the road in a drunken sleep. Ro chester Bern. '.' "''" ; " The Soctheks . Programme.

The Albany Journal has the following ra relation to- the large fires now prevail ing in New York and Massachusetts: ( One of these fires broke out about the middle of last week in Berkshire Connty, between Windsor and Cheshire, and has spread towards Dalton,' consuming hun dreds of acres of forest." ' Another commenced soon after, in the vicinity of North Adams, which has now run ' through a mile ' and a half of woods and is" still burning. "A third began somewhere betwen Carks burgh and North"Adams, is' said to' have swept away already ' hundreds upoi hun dreds cf acres of valuable timler, "and threatens to sweep away still more. " ".''. While these fires are raging in and about the Hoosac. range of mountains, the Adi rondacks to the north of us present a sim ilar scene. Fires have been raging, for some time, al different points on the west side of Lake Champlam. .At. night, the broad patches, of burning forest are dis tinctly visible from the Lake, and from the Vermont shore, and by day Ihe atmos phere, is dark and sultry wilh accumulated smoke. These are scattered through the southern and eastern portions of Essex, and the northern part of Warren county. The fires in Berkshire county are said to have originated from - the brush heaps burned, as usual, by. ihe farmer at this sea son. These at the north are supposed to have been kindled by the carelessness of hunters. ; But in both cases, the supposi tious are rather conjectures than certainties. The protracted' drought has rendered the woods dry and inflammable, and they have doubtless taken fire in many ways, as they aro always liable to at such sea sons. ' Man Hunters Foiled. Two men, Throckmorton, and Church hill, from Louisville, have lately been in this city in quest of two of their chattels, one of them was' stopping at the Rich mond House, and another with a family named Allen. Throckmorton first tried soft sawder on his property ; told him he hid regard for him, and wanted to free him and educate him. ' George howevet thought he was about as good as free already, and as to ed ucation, he knew enough already to doubt Mr. Throckmorton. ' The master then tried to get George privately to his room in the Treraont, saying he had some half worn clothes for him ; but George was shy. The master then told him that he would have him any way, and that developed George's shyness into positive caution.' For two days thsse man-hunlers hunted the Richmond, aided by a railroad con ductor, who will do well to change his profession of kidnapper's agent; or else run on some road which doas not lead out of Chicago. The "two hundred", he was to have for helping lake the boy George, is small enough for so dirty a job. Yesterday the man Throckmorton pro cured a warrant, and the aid of a Deputy United States Marshal, but tho bird had flown, and the boy George was safe "over the border." Ihe Allen family are also safe, and the Lomsvillians may go home. Chicago Press, 8th. Wht He is Wratht. President Bu chanan, it is said, has just decapitated George Sanders,- beino; instigated thereto partly by the enormous bills he was obliged to pay for bander s impudent dispatches from the Charleston Convention. .The fol lowing is a specimen of the news for which the executive so dearly paid: "His Excellency James Buchanan, President oe the United States : The minority resolution will pass.

Charleston correspondent of the Savannah News gives us as a specimen of the Palmetto jokes cracked at the expense of Democratic delegates, the following: Speaking of jokes reminds me of a "sell" practiced on a number of the delegates here, by a well-known wag, now a member of the city council, named John Kenifick, the man who was introduced to Mr. Web ster as "Dr. Gruffins of Graball county, Georgi'8." It seems thai John furnished a large number of Delegats with free passes over the various railroads, which, on closer inspection, were found to read as follows: South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and i Tennessee Railroad, Stage and Om.ni- bus Lines CHARLESTON, S.

The first 'post office was established in France in 1464; in England in 1581; in Germany in 1641; although one authority attributes the authorship of the modern postal sys tem to the Emperor Maximilian of Ger many, for the purpose of facilitating an espionage over the subjects through the medium of their correspondence, and also for the purpose of enriching himself by the profits of the enterprise. The first post office in America was established in New York in 1719, under the colonial p-overnment. In 1789 the direction of the postal business of the country was con ferred on Congress by the terms of the constitution.' At that time there were but 75 post offices in the Union; in 1825 there were 5,677. At the commencement of 185? there were 28,573. . . . Another Tract Needed. Some time since Mr. Douglas circulated a pamphlet entitled "Douglas an enemy to the .North." It was circulated at the boutn to help Douglas for the Charleston Convention. As his only hope is now in the North, he would do well to get up another tract en titled "Douglas an enemy to the South." He will then appear as he is, an enemy to both sections. ....

Manufacturers of a general ymriety of AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENTS, AND MACHINERY, Nos. 4, 6, 8. 10 and 12, West Street, near Marvin CLEVELAND, O. .' TT7"E were delighted at a risit paid lately to ihe im fV menae establishment of Baldwin, Dewitt fc Co.. on West street, near JterwiB, known as the '-Cleveland Agricultural Works." The establishment is oneoftbv largest and most complete in the country, and independ ent of the wealth it adds to oar City, and of the bread it fuTXiishes to the employees, we could not bat eoDgrabt- -late our farmers that auch a giant concern was in con stant operation for the purpose of relieving tillers of tha soil from their excessive manual labor. The building in, we think, the largest la our eit, de Toted to one purpose, and we are not certain but that it ir the largest in tLe West. Tb huge brick pile is aliva with human and mechanical faduKtry. Hoot of tha work is done by machinery and this is perfect oi its kind, and of coarse tarns out equally perfect workmaa hip. - u WHAT THST SAKE. Baldwin, Dcwit k Co. are manufacturing almost arery variety of agricultural implements, and mahhines,and hare on hand in their immense store house, a large mass of finished work ready for tha opening market of the season. Daily they are turning out various kinds of Reapers, Mowers, and Combined Machines, Bor? Pow ers of many varieties, Wood Sawing Machines, Grain Drills, Straw and Stalk Cutters, Corn S hellers, Charns, &e and an endless variety af Plows, Cultivators, Harvesters, Ire. All these are exquisitely finUhed, and each one is fit to stand as a model in tha Patent Oinca, or as a premium specimen at tire State Fair. THE 1UX3TT KXArat AJTD XOWKK In particular we ware interested in the tamous Manny Combined Reaper and Mower, which wa believe was tha original cobined machine. Single Keajiera and Single Mowers, were in nsa bnt the combination of tha two waa not acquired until this one made its appearance; aad tha Manny Machine haa maintained it high position) while many attempts to reach a like sncceas hava tailed. THX CLXTXLA3D IKOX MOW7B. This establishment also makes the Cleveland Iron Mower, with Fisher's Patent, and this certainly is as complete a specimen of manufacturing skill as ever waa exhibited. Such a Mower will make tha meadow a field of pleasure rather than one of toil, and such machinery should tempt thousand now delving in onr cities to seek the fields. These Mowers have lately received improve ments which add to their utility and value, and are con-' structed with great strength and durability. THX HUBBASD MACBIXE. . , .. , We al.aa saw, and for the first time, tha recently in vented Hubbard Machine, and took it to be a4wwheel od carriage, in which farmers and their wives go to mill or meeting, but a little examination, and a little judi cious information at ear elbow, convinced as that thear tide was a Harvesting Machine; it is simple in construe-' tion. perfect in all its parts, and beautiJul in fimsa. Tha establishment have orders for almost as many af these machines as they en get up this season; thus has this Hrrrester secured the favor and. Apprubation of agricul turists. - t WOOOS DtTKOTXD MOWUU The proprietors of these works have also seenree. tha right of sale of Wood's Improved Mower, said to be tha lightest machine made, and which is afforded at only eighty dollars. This machine in quality and price is a' remarkable one ' TOrXGLOVSS ST A a GRAIX DBILL. " ' This machine in particular attracts attention on ac count of its beauty of finish, strength and lightness. Thin machine has already drilled its way into the regard of the farmers, and has become an indispensable fanniojf " machine. We might enlarge npon the use of the drill and point to our exchanges for the evidence in favor of a.irjgadr.ll, by the testimony sach exchan ges univer sally furnish as to the superior spring condition of tha wheat fields where the drill' was used tovef those where it was not used. Bnt we will not question the intelli gence of farmers by urging the advantages of the use of the drill. The Star Drill does great credit to the invent or, M. C.
