The nomigatioa of Mr. Pot.a will be supported by the united democracy of this Slate, and with a zeal that (will evince their attachment to principle, and their re gard ol every consideration save that ol the public good. They will take the field with unwonted earnest and vig or, and whatever may be the quality or degree of whig gasconade, onrlriends throughout tbe Union may rely upon the prediction that the democracy will carry the 8tate.

We say. without fear of contradiction, that a stron ger ticket was never placed before the American people or one that has been more cordially supported than the pcesrnt ticket is sure to be, by the democracy ol the en tire Union. Rhode Island lndep. The whigs effect to sneer at the nomination of Mr. Polk, and to speak of the obscurity of his past political life lit. In political rank he is tbe equal of Mr. Clay. He has been the Speaker of the House ot Representa tives, and that is the highest post Mr. Clay ever honest ly ebtained. Mr. Polk would doubtless like his compe titor, have been Secretary of Slate, if he had condescen ded to bargain for official digntiy. That he has been Speaker shows that he is the equal in rank to Mr. Clay; and that he has net been Secretary proves bua the su penor.

The del gates upon their return should be received, and will be with a wide and enthusiastic welcome. The unanimi ty with which they agreed, will awake a spirit ol unan imity and enthusiasm and patriotism in the country which will bear this ticket triumphantly over all oppo sition that can be made to it.

We cordially ceagratulate our readers upon the hap py wsoh of the deliberations of the Democratic Nation al Convention a result as gratifying as it was nnexpec. ted, and which, from the enthusiasm ol the response al ready given, affords a brilliant promise for the future. It is not to be denie-l, that for a time the difficulties that beset the Convention tbe doubt, the hesitation and ap parently irreconceivable diversity of opinion among its members which were so strongly manifest cast a deep shade of gloom and apprehension upon the best hopes of the friends of democracy, and that a fear began to ex. tend itself, that although possessed of all the elements ol success, we should fall asunder for want of a rallying point, and suffer the enemy to ride in triumph through our divided rank, victorious, not in his own strength but from our disunion. All this, however, is past. A gen eral shout of approbation goes np as the intelligence spreads itself over the land, and men who bnt yertcrday spoke of the prospects of the cause with distrust and sadness, now joyfully grasp each other by the band and exchange cheering anticipations. They canaot but feel that whatever were their original preferences whatev er may have been their attachment to individuals, the course pursued in the emergency and it was emergen cy of the most formidable kind, is at once the dictate of wisdom and ol policy- By the nominations which hav been made, every one sacrifices something of hrs previ ous wishes upon the altar of the general good each man yields a little t his neighbor, and no one can say that be alone has been compelled to abandon his posi tion; for all find themselves in a different altitude from any which had been- expeeted. The country has seen James K. Polk fn the most try ing and difficult positions, and it has seen also that he was always found equal to the crisis, whatever it might be. As Chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means during the memorable "Panic Session" of Con gress, he bore the brunt of that remorseless war fn the House, which Andrew Jackson confrotved In the exe cutive cha li. Bankhm and federalism then believed it- self to be assBfetf M a triumph worn from the terrors and sufferings of the people. Its champions, flushed with hope and regardless of alt restraint, strove to tram- pic those who dared to oppose tliem, beneath their feet, and while their journals prated of insurrection and civil war while revohnioan "as yet bloodless" were pro claimed in the Senate, a desperate effort was made in the House of Representatives tosiTence and to overawe by evwy variety of intimidation, the friends of popular rights who had nerve enough to face the storm and breast the torrent. It was a tearfuf struggle, and many quailed. Many men faltered before the tempest, and never was the can.eotdemoeracy in greater danger that at that, memorable period, when we scarcely knew whom to trust, or who next would prove false to the con fidence tenoned in him. But foremost among those who were prompt to meet and to-repel the enemy was Jarne i K.Polk. PecwKarty exposed to their assaults by his position as chairman of the Committee before alluded to, he contended day after day, week after week, and i month attermvatb with the minions of BanBism, dis play ingsw much ability, firmness and address that no one contributed morrthaw he, both fn the House and a mong the people-, tosustaftt rsederrwcratiteaune, and to enable it to surmount and ti survive the dangers by which it was sjicompaV'rJ. It was then wc felt that fames K. Polk of Tennessee, was one upon whom tht .lepublic should fix its eye, as a man to be relied on in be hour of trial-ras one combining precisely those qua lilies which are required to do as service in tbe highest uatlon, and we had a strong conviction that in noui , would come in which be woukl thus be called upon. I i.is come unexpectedly to be sure, end sooner than the inticipaiion, but its coming is no", the less agreeable 'rom tbe radidity of its approach; for every subsequent id ol Mr. Polk's political life, as Speaker of the House is Governor of the State of Tenne3see, and in every po sition which has given opportunity lor observation, has served to increase and strengthen our belief in his fit ness for any duty that could be confided lo him-jPAtto.

We now raise the names et die nominees with a right hearty good will, and pledge ourselves to exert our ut most energies to place them in those high trusts to wntcn .hey have been nominated, and lor which they are so peculiarly qualified with honor to themselves, and to the happiness of the people, and the well being ot our glori ous Republic. No nomination could have been made that could have been more acceptable to our friends in Delaware. James K. Polk has always beeu a favorite here. Del. Gazette, The Philadelphia Times, raises the Polk banner, and says: "Mr. Polk is a sound, consistent Democratic Folitu cian of the Jefferson School, talented and discreet." The excitement on the arrival ot the Southern maij bringing the gratifying intelligence, was hailed with one universal feeling of joy. An intense feeling of enthusi asm pervaded the whole party. Every body was satis- tied with the result the friends of Van Buren, and the friends of every other candidate were proclaiming to each other ths perfect satisfaction with which they recei ved the nomination. It is true New York has not pot first choice, but she has got a distinguished citizen for the Vice Presidency, and she will give to the nominees, at least 30,000 majority over Henry Clay." New York Plebeian. THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES. It af- ferds us inexpressible gratification to present to the dem ocracy of this section ol the Union the names of tbe two such men as have been selected by the Democratic Na tional Convention to be the standard bearers of their principles in the approaching campaign. We feel well assured that these nominations will be hailed with en thusiasm by the Democracy throughout the length and breadth of tbe land, and that they will rally in one un broken, irresistible phalanx, to their support. We now have tbe satisfaction ef knowing that the most perfect spirit of UNIONaad HARMONY pervades the entire Democratic mass, and we look forward with certainty to a great and glorious VICTORY as the result of our efforts in November next. -Frederick Citizen. THE NOMINATION. The die is cast, and that able and accomplished state- man, James K. Polk, ol Tennessee, has been unani mously nominated by the Baltimore Convention, the Democratic candidate for the Presidency of the United States. We hail the nomination with joy, and auger from it a most glorious victory. Circumstances have prevented the nomination of that eminent statesman, Martin Van Buren, by a two-thirds vote, according to the usage of previous National Con ventions; but what Democrat in the Union does not part with him with the most piofound gratitude for his servi ces, the warmed admiration for his talents, and the sin cerest respect for the graceful manner in which he au thorized bis intimate friend, Mr. B. F.Butler to with draw his name. Honor and happiness be his best re ward. Mr. Polk's nomination has been received at Balti more, at Washington, and at Richmond with enthusi asm. It heals all division; unites our party which bands of iron. It thwarts every hope which the Whigs had indulged of discord and divisions. It blasts the election of Mr. Clay and saves oar country from the sceptre ot the Dictator. Mr. Polk is trtre to all out Ropublican principles, and be is the friend of Texas. We shall go into tbe encounter with renovated spirits, and with indo mitable energies. He will carry Virginia by thousands and the Union by an overwhelming majority. What now becomes of all the stale humbugs of the Whigs'! What of the several tons of matter, which they have had printed and enveloped for immediate dis tribution, in case Mr. Vaa Buren had been nominated1! "Othello's occupation's gone." Joy to the Republican party. A strong organization; redoubted exritiuns, and a glorious success will attend 0ur efforts. Joy, again! and discomfit to our opponents. Henry Clay is never destined, in all human probability, to be the President of the United States. The Republic will again be saved from the sinister influence ot the Fede ral principles of this still-starred genius. Richmond En quirer. WHO'L WIN THE BANNER?

OVERWHELMING GATHERING OF THE DEMGCRACY! AT LEAST25.000 DEMO CRATS IN THE PARK UNANIMOUS and ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE to ths DEMO CRATIC NOMINATIONS ! THE GREAT PROCESSION I , Yesterday will' be a day long cherished in the memo ry of the Democracy of New York, for the extraordina ry events, the enthusiasm, and unanimity which mark ed it. From llie very first of the day groups of persons were gathered, and the greatest anxiety and expectation prevailed. An immense platform was raised in front ot the City Hall, and at precisely 4 o'clock, the first procession arrived, and passed by the Park. The first of the hundred guns was also fired and the crowd imme diately began to collect. On they came by thousands until long before the time for holding the meeting, the spacious square in front of the platform, the City Hall steps, the balcony of the Hall, were crowed, yet the tide did not diminish. As the different delegations arrived with their banners, the scene was magnificent beyond description. Music sounding from all partsthe vari ety and splendor of the banners and tbe immense maass of human beings crowding out to the very railings of the Park, was a sight which must be seen to be apprecia ted. All classes of persons seemed to have left their or dinary employments to swell the thundering response to the nomination of Polk and Dallas, and to bear the re port of the delegates to the Baltimore Convention. Alter the organization had been completed, the Hon Benjamin F. Butler -came forward amid the most terific cheering, repeated again and again by the tremendous crowd. He coramenceo' by stating to his fellow-citizens, as one ot the delegates to Baltimore Convention, to state to them the result of their deliberations in the nomination of James K. Polk, of Tennessee, and George M. Dal las, Pennsylvania, (each of these names were received with thunders of applause. It was unnecessary for him to speak either of personal character or public acts of the nominee for President, He knew him personally as a high minded and upright man, and his public act. were known in every Democratic State in the Union. His whole public career was a sure pledge and guaran tee, that if he was elected to the high office for which he was nominated, he would in each position be found faithlul to the trust reposed in him by the country, and unshaken in the maintainance of those Democratic principles which were cherished by the masses of the people of the Union and by none more so than by the lion heartedDemocracyof New York. (Great cheers.) Mr. B. spoke of the deep hold Mr. Van Buren had on the aflections of the people of New York and their hope that he might have received the nominalion of the Con. vention; bnt however ardently he, (Mr. B. and other friends of the distinguished son of New York desired such nomination, yet it was due to the occasion to say a word, not in the spirit ol nnkindness, and very Jar from being in a spirit of dissension and disunion. Mr. B. af ter alluding to the construction which some persons had placed npon Mr. Van Buren's Texas letter, proceeded to review the principles which would characterise the administration of the whigs, should theysucced in ob taining power. He said: In the first place, there is the establishment of a na tional currency , which is to be under the control 'jf Con. gress, and to extend to all parts of the United States, & I do sincerely wish that onr honorable opponents (for there are honorable mea among them) had the manli ness unequivocally to announce their object the estab lishment of a Bank of the United States.

And with this they have also pledged themselves to support, as President ol the American people, that in dividual who is now the life, soul, and head of the great , Federal Whig parly, and with him f if electedl will es tablish a National Bank, provide for the assumption of State debts, for the distribution of Public Lands, and tor all those high-toned Federal measures, of which their candidate has been the representative and head for the last twelve years cheers. Fellow citizens, we can- pot escape the decision of that subject. Will' you re ceive Henry Clay as yonr President? No! no!!) If you do, you must also accept, at their hands, a'National Bank, and alt those other measures to which I have al luded. Cheers .) Fellow citizens! can you oi will yew vote for such measures under any circumstances. Can you go now lor those print holes which you have always opposed, such measures as are not only contrary to the constitu. (ion, but injurious to and subversive of tie-very liberties of the people. (Great cheering.) In the hands of the masses of the people of the United States is the government which it will choose-. Can j ou submit to heve a money governing power ah au thority which is above the constitution, which embar rasses commerce, defies the government of the people- corrupts the ballot boxes, and through them prevents a free expression Of opinion at the polls, (treraendou cheering.)
