AFTERNOON SESSION. At halfpast past. 2 P. M. the Convention waa again called to order. The committee on Permanent Organiza tion, through Mr. Beard of Hamilton, mads a report, which was adopted. President loun Davkkfort, of Belmont. There were 31 vice Presidents, of whom una took the atand, aa follows: Viae P tsldentsl. 8. H. Burt, II. Hollis- ter.T. R. Eddy, M. L. Cook, B. F. Martin, John W. Bsker, T. J. Moore, T. C. Ware, Worlbingtun, Samuel Pettit, J. A. Trimble, J. W. McBelh, Albert Dunning, J. II. James, James l.mmett, I). Humphreys. Eli M. Den nison, J. II. Jones, Dr. A. Ball, Ira Kolly, j sun louweii. Secretaries E. . Ha i ley, Oigood Muzzy, t. U. Kearney, and M. V. bnsier. On taking the chair, Mr. Davenport made a speech. Ha evidently saw tho awkward position In which they -vera placing them selvsa before the peoplt of Ohio, and tried to vert what be fait wuuld ba said of them. asid ha prssomed they would ba snsered at doukfaee, and Union savers but ha felt that the present wss an important crisis.'and that If ths purposes of the Republicsn Conven tion wtre carriad out they would end In issolmlon of lbs Union. Ha dssirsd to what be coald to avert such a calamity. admitua that the repeal of the Missouri Com profile was wrong, sod an outrage upon Notti. but the tendencies of the Republicsn nwtaeBt were dsogerous. and tbia shsulo i t ! an a of in A a- Us as the do He the quicken their effjrti for the maintenance of the Union. Mr. Norton of Cincinnati moved that a committee on Resolutions be appointed. Agreed to, and the chair appointed as said committee E. P. Norton, Wm. A. Adams and others. When the motion for a csmrniltee was made, Hon. Wm, Slanbery of Licking said he hoped the motion would not prevail. He trusted this Convention did not come here to adopt a platform, but merely to nominate candidate for Governor. After the committee retired Hon. Wm. Stanbery was cilled upon fur speech. He took the stand and spoke at some length. We were not in a position to take full i otes, and we will not pretend to give his words. We therefore adopt the report, as we find it in the Cincinnati Commercial of this morn ing. lion. William Stanbery, of Licking, was called on for a speech. lie was opposed to making Platforms. Tho Constitution of the United Slates was Platform enough for him. He proceeded to mako a stiff pro-slavery speech. Slavery, if it was an evil at all, was sorely an evil to the South, being an unmit igated benefit to the North. The South owned three millions of sluves which were re ally at work fur tho Nu'th, and furnished a market for her manufactories. It seemed to be patriotism in tho Nortn now-a-days to hate the South, hut that kind of patriotism did not suit him. Wo were under obligations to the South, and tho South had greut reason to complain of us, "because we kept up a per petual agitation, making our Southern breth ren dread the horrors of tha West India c mancipuiun. Ha was not in the habit of attending meet inir, und was opposed to slump soeakins. and hoped that the nominees of the convention would nol be caught in Iht disgraceful position of apprarm? Iirfire the people on ths slump lie had Como up on that occasion tu do whut he could to save the Slato from the impend ing disgrace the election of an Abolitionist to tho Gubernatorial chair of Oiiio. Chaio did nol earo tu be Governor for tho honor of that position. Ho wanted to be President thrt was the point. If the Abolitionists could rule tho National Government, they wuulr' take measures that would compel the South to secede Irom tho Union, end then the Abolitionist President would arm the slaves with U. 8. mulcts ! 1 I ! The whites and blacks could not live together on an equality. If the negroes were free they would cut the throats of the whiles, if their owr throats were not cut. (Cries of good ) Ho waa op posed to the Blissouri Compromise, but thought that the admission of Kanjis ss slave Slate would not be sufficient cause for the dissolution of iho Union. He did nol wish any parly to be tcspomible for his o pinions. When Mr. Slanbery took his seat E. P Norton of Cincinnati, from tho committee on Resolutions, submitted tho following Wiicreah: We believe that the period has arrived when all who desire the permanonce integrity of tho Union of our common country and have a regard fur the interests of the Slute of Ohio, so long snd deeply injured, should distinctly and solemnly announce their wihlies and opinions, therefore R 'sohtd, Thai with reverential accord, we accept the admonition of tho Father of the Country to bowure of sectional parties, and utterly repudiate, as unworthy the confidence of the people of Ohio, the party inaugurated in our Hiate under the auspices of tho Con vention of thu 13th of July last, the great oh. Jer.i or which was tu array one section ol our Union against tho other. Resolved, Thut we cannot consent to tho abandonment of t'e principles of the Ameri can party, and shall continue to maintain tliein so long us thero remains a vestige of that malign foreign Influence which threatens our institutions. Resolved, That the interests of the people of Ohio require a radical chango in tho pol icy and organized law of the Slate regarding our currency und taxation system and thut we will endeavor to obtain the co-operation of our citizens of all parties to secure, such a re form. R-sotved, While we denounce the outrages that have lesulled from the passuire of the Ne braska and Kansas bill, and demand from all densrtmoiils of National Government the pun ishment of all who trample upon then, wo will never coalesce with an u'tra sectional party which for the accomplishment of its und, proclaims its determination to resist the laws of the land und make them void and in operative. ft. Wet J, Thst since the organization of rur government, candidates fur Governor have been seiectud as the representative men of tin ir party and their friends, that while Hon. Salmon P. Chuse, may represent tho Abol I itiunists of Ohio, and Hon. Win. Medill the Nebruaka Democrats of the Slate,' both of litem are thu furthest from impersonating our political ideas, that the Hun. Allen Trimble, a favorite Governor of . ur state ia limes vhon a thought of disunion waa abhorred as a crime, a mun of lofty character and truly of manly intellect, is our choice for Governor ol Ohio, ami wo t hero (or 6 nominate him as candidate for lh office.,; That portion of the "mass meeting of Ohio" which surroundod tho stand, cheered very lustily when Gov. Tumble's ha ne was snnounced. Home enthusiastic Individual call e djupon the band to play the "Star Spangled Haulier." They gathered up their instru ments, and obeyed the call in excellent stylo. Mr. Trimble took the stand and thanked the convention fur the hunor they had con ferred upon "his brother," snd said that al though the venerable ex Gov. knew nothing of this movement, he wuuld pledge his ac ceptance of Ihe nomination. Mr. Win. Stanbery aaid ha had known Gov, Trimble for many years, and believed him to be an honest man, and entirely wor thy their support. James R. Stanbery of Newark, then took the atand, and spoke at some Imiglh. He ex pected lbs proceedings of this Convention would ba misrepresented. But he could' not acquiesce in the acta of ilia convention of the 13th July. He then pitched into that Con vention, and spent some time in abusing Mr. Chase and "Tom Spooner." Ha wss very bitter sgainat the Utter gentlensn, who, he ssid, had betrayed the Ameriosn psrty Into the hands of the Republics of the Stste (We thought of tha juror who had eleven very obslinats 6i dishonest men to deal with!) Mr. Stanbery went in strongly fur saving the Union, and thought tha only Vay to avert the Immlnsnt danger, was to defsat tha Repub lican party of this Slat. Tha way to vin dicate tha North fur tha outrage of ths repeal of tha Missouri Compromise wss ta exter minate the race of doughfaces that had gone with the South intlhie measure. (We thought so too, and marveled at the wisdom and fore eight of the men who proposed to do this by attempting to divide the enti-Nebrasks forcea of the State.) , Mr. E. P. Norton next took the stsnd and spoke at leng'.h. He also felt a deep concern for the safety of tho Union, and pursued about the aame line of argument of Mr. Stanbery. Irad Kelly then spoke briefly. We could not hear his remarks, but i nfet that his speech was an appeal; old Whigs to rally around Trimble. Joseph II. Geiger then mide one of his characteristic speeches. We trust the re porter of his former speech was present, and will fsvor the public with this Isst effort. When we reciove a copy we w ill hand it over to the editor of the Cincinnati Commer. cial for disseclion. A. Banning Norton then took the stand. He gloried in being a member of the Ameri can party. He declared he would supurt no man for office that opposed the sentiments of this party. Ho was in favor of the Cleve land platfurin from beginning to end. As to Chase and Medil!, they did not represent his sentiments, and he wuuld not vote fur them. He could cheerfully vote for Mr. Trimble, fur he believed him to be right on those ques lions. He hoped this Btnall beginning of true Americans would resolve to persevere in the work they hid commenced. He advised the permanent organization of the sentiment represented by this meeting as a party in the St.te. He huped tho members of it would go forth, and proclaim its sentiments to the people, and ho was sure it would grow from this small beginning to formidable parly. On motion of Mr. Norton of Cincinnati, the chair appointed the following as the A mericari central committee. A. B. Norton of Franklin Co., B. F. Mir- tin, do., J. O.' Reamey, do , Bushnell White, Cuyahoga Co., G. R. Morgan, hrie Co., Danl. Humphrey, Lieking'Co ,J. A. Trimble, Highland Co., D. J. Fsllis, do., M.L. Hatcher Belmont C i., A. G.

This Start Central Committee was in st'ucted to preparo an address to tho people of Ohio, selling forth the objects and purpo ses of this new party m ivetnent. A very enthusiastic gentleman frcm Huron county, just as the audio-ice was leaving, gave vent to his feelings in a rapid discharge of wrrua. We were too for from him to learn their import. Mr. Ware, of Cincinnati, ofierei. a resolu tion, recommending to thesupportof this now "American party" tho Continental, a paper published and edited by Messrs. Me Belli and Norton of this city. The resolution was a dnptcd. Tho Convention then adjourned with three cheers for Trimble. Proceedings of the Executive K. N. Council.

Come up and hear theso lij guns of Re publicanism go off. County Printing. Much ado has been made in certain quart ers about the heavy bill for printing in the County the lust year. By the Receipta and Expenditures aa published by the Auditor it doe i seem unnecessarily lurgo. That pub lUalion read as follows: am't fii ros rsisTisa n RCnwsn, I.swl, Dcllnq'l LUI els X 73 A II llalslry il ilu IKt AO liresmiiuur du do 1 si IH) Total am'l paid lotrrintinl 71(1 13 This, however, wo are prepared to show was not all for Sprinting duno from . June 1854 to June 1855. By the list of orders for printing, aa published by Auditor Charles- worth last week in the Gazette we learn the lulluwing fuels; , The published receipts and expenditures ncluded the following work of olher years:- To B. R. Cowen, iFor printing Laws & Assessor's Blunk '' Blanks for P. Judge " Blanks for sheriff's 3 yrs and more $170.26 $34 63 68,11 $27:2,99 Making $373,99 charged to Ihe last year that belonged to former years. Of this much we are certain, and it may be that a portion charged to Mr. Gressinger was for a former year, though we ate not aure such is the case. Tliis, however, brings the bill fur printing down to 437, 12J, which is a great falling off. The expenses for this year are then j about right. The expense of publishing the j Receipts and Expenditures, ihe Delinquent! List and printing iho Assessors Blanks are about the heaviest, and atand thus: S. Gressinger, for Recr. & Ex. and Dolinq't List (G0,00 A. H. Balsley (750)0 B. R. Cowen " $00,00 The Asscasura blanks are charged with other items and amount with those other charges, to $103,60, w hich makes for these items the aggregate of f 'J93.50. Mr. Ores singer's charges fur stationery and printing for Treasurer, ($94,90.) stationery for coun ty ($24,00,) publishing Fund Commissioners' report, and tha other charges for blanks Sheriff, Probsts Judge, and Auditor, amount ing to $7,73, make up tha total of $437, 13. This is a fair exhibit of tha atata of the printing expenses, and gives tha matter in Ita trua light. : (KrTha Whigs of Vermont bava nominat ed Mr. Wbseler aa their candidate for Gov ernor, and Isaac J. Wright for Lituteuant u uvs ruur, The American Party. Tin position of the American nsrtv in the State of Ohio la now known. The final ac tion of its State Council in reference to State nominations is published, and it is satisfactory. They have resolved th-'il is inexpedient to place a State Ticketi nomination at this time, but leave their members free to cast their votes for whom they please. This Is i right. There Is no necessity fur divis'on of those who sre opposed to the present Nation al and State Administrations, in fact auch a division will be eminently injurious. If. an other state ticket should be brought into the field the Locofcco ticket must be successful. and .this would but fix, for snother term, the presont party in power. This must not be done. The Locofoco parly must be ousted a reform it, our State policy must to insti tuted, and our people relieved of the weight of taxation which ia now cramping their en ergies, and crushing the very life blood out of them. There should then be no division of this reformatory sentiment cither in state or Legislative elections, but fusion should be the motto, nnd a Waterloo defeat will await the corrupt army of Locofocoism'next fall. The Meeting To-morrow. That the Republican Mass Meeting adver tised to come off on llie sumo day with the Democratic Mass Meeting, was no fault of the Republicans of this county, the editor of the Gazette well knows. It was arranged thus by the State Central Committee, the Republicans here hut! no choice, and no pow er to chango the day. It v ould have been better, no doubt, if it hid been on some oth er day, but it is now too late to alter it. As it is so arranged, wo think the Committees of arrangement should fix the hours for the speaking so that all persons who attend the meetings can hear all Ihe speaking; this will be a satisfactory arrangement, and should not be objected to by any one. There will be an immense crowd up here from all parts of the county, we have no doubt, and it will be the day of the campaign in Belmont. Virginia on the "Mass" Meeting. A pro-sluvery writer (who can it be?) in the Wheeling Cazette, in speaking ol the lalo Mass Meeting at Colun.bus says: "Let Medill, or any body else bo elected who is of a different stump from Salmon P. Chase, and wo will sny, well done Ohio." Yes, nnd the Ohio Slave Democracy will echo "Well done Ohio!" Tho same writer also commends tho pro-sluvery speech of Wm. Statibury.and copies a greutcr part of it. We find the fol lowing sentiment in Mr, S's. speech: The Norih is tlm parly that is mainly benefited by slavery ill Ihe ifauth. The Southern plainer livus ill conalant danger nnd wilh 1,000 acres of laud, is not so couiorliihlfl as ilm Ohio Farmer with 100 acres. Yet nil tlin results ol'Sou'hern labor, come into Northern packets. Now if it is the Nurth thut reaps the only benefit from the institution of sluvery if it is true, ob Mr. Slanbury says, that "all tho rcBiills of Southern lubor come into Northern pockets," why is there such threats of dis solving the Union on the part of the. South, if we persist in making wur upon slavery. If slavery is to our advuntage, and a loss tu tho South, why can we not do aa wo pleaae wilh it. Slaveholders are hardly so disinter ested as to lose money and "live in constant danger" to put money in our pockets. Mr. Slanbti-y's argument won't gu down. We tee nothing yet to mako us change the opin ion we first formed of this bolter's mass meet ing, namely, that is a pro-slavery affair, got up at tho instigation of the slave Democracy acting through some few political soreheads. Bolter's Mass Meeting. forLe,OUnced the only mode left of righting the In speaking of the Mass Meeting which asiemblud in Columbus on the Slh, and the proceedings of which may be found in an other column, the Journal says: "The "muss meeting" of the bolters which has just passed off in our goudly city, waa a nieeling without the masses. It was like the pluy of llulet, with the purt of Hamlet lelt out, The masses could nut be found. In their places ni,d alunuing n we suppose the representatives of the imugiuary multitude thut was to como up hero on the 9th of Aug., in pursuance of the call of "Pup Taylor," aided by tho kind sympathies of the Sluve Democracy sll over the State to denuunco tho n.ovement of the People, we found assembled in the City Hall a small knot of sore-headed politicians from Cincinnati and some half dozen counties in different directions. Next to Hamilton, wa believe Licking hud the hunor of supplying tho largest contribution to this out-pouring of the "masses," number ,ntf pprhaps n jury pannel (subject however to challenge) in all The afternoon session waa swelled to sn outside aggregate of seventy-five to a hundred. There were In tho Hull si one time perhaps three hundred persons, but they were our citizens ol all parlies, merely lookers on.wilh a smart infusion of old Loc ifoco stagers from different purts cf the State, representing more counties than the active participants in the proceedings These latter persons hud been busy promoters of the "greut mass meet ing," and bad come in to sue how the game worked. Ths movement was In spirit and effect (so far aa it produces any effect) a pro-SUvery demonstration. Thia was not the design of euch individual person present, we have rea son to believe. Hut on looking over the re solutions and the sketch of proceedings, to be found in our columns of to-day. this will clearly appear. Tho meeting expressed itself opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Com promise and the subsequent villainies, but wrong under the plea that it aavoied of sec tionalism and oppuaition to lawat The cov ering is too thin none will ba deceived by it that have not a Jesira to be cheated. Wa have not tha least desire to misrepre sent tha meeting of tha Trimbles, and pub lish nothing but what e believa true in re ference to it. Tha reporttr of the Cincinnati nou(rr, speaks of tha enthusiasm prevail. at the meeting, but soya not a word of numbers. A Democratic friend who was present gives an account of It which fully agrees with the statements of the Journal. The sttempt to represent this "Mats Meet ing" as the State Counoil of the American party is all a humbug; it wos no such a thing ss will bo seen by the report of the proceed ings of that body In another part of to day's paper. We think the Journal report of tho pro ceedings may be relied "upon, as we have tl- ways found it perfectly reliuble in a question of fact.

Af we do not feci the slighest disposition to gag any one in a political campaign, and as wo are always disposed to sllow all per sons the "largest liberty'' in matters oopin ion, we hereby offer the use of our columns to any person or pe-rons who are disposed to oppose the election of Chase, & advance the interests of Medill or Trimble. We jare in favor of Chase for Governor, and we can give good, tenable reasons for that position. We presume any one who votes for Trimble or Medill, can also give good reasons for their position. We will allow the opponents of Chase the use of tine column every week in our paper, that column to be occupied in a gentlemanly enanner, with articles free from personalities, and confined to the questions at issue in this campaign. The correspon dent, whoever it may, can write over what ever signature he pleases, but we will require his true name; confidentially, of course. The writer of the articles can have the liberty of reading the proof sheet before they goto press. Wo obligate ourself to give the articles a fair place in the paper and correct tho typo gruphy as carefully as for any other article. They must not exceed a column each week; we mean by that of course, they must not run much over a column. We would nit curtuil an article If it was three, four, or twenty lines over the allotted space. Our object in making the above proposlton is to draw out objections to Chase, see what they are, and if possible reply to them. We wiil endeavor, so far as we nre able, to an swer each article thus inserted, in a calm & dispassionate manner, confining our articles tu facts and arguments, always eschewing personalities. Let some one embrace this! proposition, if the terms are scceptuble, and if they are not dictate their own terms, and let us heur from them.

We last week published a telegraphic ac count of this disgraceful affair, and since that time we have received full purticulars;receiv ed through the Louisville papers.

There is nothing so soothing to the mind as frequent settlements, in which the past is all brought down in one grand item to the bot tom of the balance sheet an 1 there cancelled by a corresponding debit or credit, or passed over tu that mainmulh tomb of trade prufit and luss. A good business man, once in each year at least, squares up the old books and starts the new wilh a clean set. n politics, above all tho past ought not to bo loo closely scanned, but the entire field should be surveyed, and in the great partner ship which is formed by those who espouse the same came, the largest liberality of sen' tlment should be tolerated, and the utmost sacrifice of personal feeling, if needs he, en dured. Now, in the present campaign just now opening in Ohio, the beauty of charity can have an admirable field for display. With the majority of those who have attach ed thumaelves tolthe Fusion or Republican party, Salmjn P. Chase has been unpopular. We shall not attempt V) ifefend that gentle mar in the means used to eet into the If- , nit'.'d States Senute we thnught those means unbecoming an honorable man, and I we think so still. M ireuvcr, we knowofbut tivo questions upon which his views and ours coincide, but those are great questions of the day; one a Nitional question, the other a ;' State question. Willing at this time to merge every other isme in those two one in volving the great wrong perpetrated by an al most undivided S nith in its passage of that unmitigated piece of rascality called the Kan- i sas-Nebraka bill, and the other involving a reform in the Stato government-we shut and seal the political acoount books of the past and look only ahead. Nuw, then, having wipsd out 'old scares,' we will give what to us seem the best kind of reasons for electing Mr. Chase Governor of Ohio. In the first place that gentleman stood side by side with our noble Senator Wade, in that great battle in which thirty pieces of sil- 1 Ver carrieo overto Ihe Southern slavery pro- pngandiots enough Northern tondies to beat down, for the time being, the cause of free dom, the rights of free labor, and manliness of the North. In a National point of view, then, it is peculiirly oppmpriate, that one of the distinguished champions of the North in that great struggle, sin old be the standard bearer in a contest the result of whLh we mean shall speak a rebuke1 for that great wrong. And mate than this, the election of Mr. Chase will be the bitterest pill the South can swallow, and having been Bp it upon by that South, the "old Adam" of our nature will be gratified by giving tha perpetrators of that insult as unpalatuble a dose as. possible. Secondly, whrn this question of extending slavery into a free territory was impending, the Locofoco Legislature of this great State encouraged that damning deed, by elect! ig Mr. Pugh to the Senate, in t'ifi p'ace of Mr. Chase. Mr. Puck's only merit was blind subserviency to that party which is owned and controlled by slavery propagandists, lor he breathes not a political breath untainted by abject, groveling submission to party dic tation, and Southern party dlctntion at that. Hence, no rebuke to the Locofoco party of Ohio can be so marked, as to make him Gov ernor, nhose place was filled by a man, who, upon this question of slavery extension, Was at the time of his election known not to rep resent the Stale of Ohio. Thirdly, in electing Mr. Ciiasr we defeat Locofocoism in Ohiu.and oust that psrty which has brought our Slate burdens upon us, ma- king us tenants at tho will of the State tsx gatherer, and driving frm our borders mil lions of capital.

It would be a warte of words for the President to sing, ''I give myself away, "Tis all that I can do." fur body, soul, and reputation are laid at the feet of a 'Missouri mob. The spectacle of such utter subserviency is disgusting, and the President should spend the remainder of hia days with Atchison nnd his infernal crew of brutes, for Franklin Pierce in their property, and bought too, at cheap rate.

This was the burthen of his speech. Governor Medill also went off un the anti-Knnw-Nothing shoot, hut did not carry it into Kansas. He said tho Know Nothing were in favor of disfranchising dutchmen and enfranchising negroes, which was the vry reverse of Taylor's charges, He aaid Chase was a diaunionist, and thia was about all he did say. There were on!y some throe hundred porsons present, and many of those were Republicans. It spposra that the ground of defence act up by tha "Treasury Esters" in the State campaign, is hostility to Know-Nothingism.
