The- most prominent and interesting in telligence we have to communicate by this- mail U the authentic accounts of the successful negotiations of his Excellency Commodore terry, of the United States Navy, in Japan; and there is reason for believing that we may shortly have par ticulars of the treaty and the ports to be opened, as on the 27th of March Com modore Perry was to have a grand meet- ins near Jed Jo with the Princess and Ministers of the Emperor of Japan, ap pointed, i( is said, for the consideration and conclusion, and rrioet probably the ratification of the treaty. - From all we learn, there can be no doubt that Jpa will be opened to all nations, and; each have the faculty of making a treaty.

Washington, June 12. Senate. Mr. Weller presented the ioint resolution of the Legislature of California sustaining the principles of the Nebraska bill. Mr. Douglas introduced a bill providing for the annual meeting of Congress on the 1st Monday in October instead of Decem ber. The veto message on the insane land bill was then taken up. Air.

UOODSFIELD, OHIO, JUNE 21, 1854. Democratic State Ticket for 1854. FOR SUPREME JUDGE, SKEPARD F. NORRIS, Of Clermont County. MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS, ALEXANDER P. MILLER, . - - Of Butler County. 07 lion. W. Shannon will please ac cept our thanks for a copy of the Statis tics of the United States Census, 1850," and other valuable documents. 07" After a session of five days the Court of Common Pleas, for this county, adjourned early on Monday morning of this week. But little business was trans acted. There were but two jury causes tried. We Were pleased to learn that there was no business for the Grand Jury, which adjourned after being in session a few hours. This was also the case at the late terms of the court in Belmont and Guern sey .'counties. Evil-doers have become dissatisfied with Judge Alexander's admin istration of the criminal code, and have left for parts unknown. Democratic Convention. It will be seen, by reference to another column in to-day's paper, that the Central Committee for this county, have called the Convention for the '.ast Saturday in August. The candidates to be placed in nomination this fall are a Representative in Congress. Probate Judge, a County Auditor, a County Commissioner, and probably a Board of Directors for the County Infirm- ry, now in process of erection. With regard to Probate Judge it may be roper to add that the commission of the ptesent incumbent, who was appointed by the Governor, has had effect since the 23th October last.. The 13lh section of the 4th rticle of the Constitution, under which he was . appointed, declares "In case the ffice of any Judge shall become vacant. before the expiration of the regular term or which he was elected, the vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the Governor, until a successor is elected and qualified: and such successor shall be elected for the unexpired term, at the first annual election that shall occur more than thirty days af ter the vacancy shall have happened." t will be seen, therefore, that the commis sion of the present incumbent expires this fall. The term of Elihu Morris, late Pro- ale Judge, would not have expired until the second Monday of February next; consequently a Probate Judge must be elected on the 2d Tuesday of October next to fill out this vacancy -of three or four months from October to February, and also for the regular term of three years, commencing tne second Monday of Feb ruary next, i But of course, (as with our present candidate for Supreme Judge,) the same individual can be a candidate for and fill both this vacancy from October to February, and also the regular term. Interesting Correspondence. We publish below a letter from J. B. Noll, Esq., of this county, and the reply of Gov. Shannon thereto. It will be seen that the Governor explicitly declines being a candidate fdr re-election. This deter mination, although many of his friends desired that it might be otherwise, was to be expected, after the action of the Barnes ville Convention two years ago, and from Gov. Shannon's well known desire for the harmony and success of the Democratic party: VVoodsfield, O., June 5, 1854. Hon, W. Shannon Dear Sir: As the time is approaching when the people will begin to consult as to who'will be candi dates for nomination before the next Dem ocratic Convention, for this Congressional District,! have thought it not inappropriate to address you on this subject. ' Many of your old friends desire to know whether you will be a candidate for re-election An answer is, therefore, respectfully soli cited. Yours, with respect, ' JOHN B. NOLL. Washington City, June 12, 1854. Mr. John B. Noll Dear Sir: Your favor of the 5th instant, desiring tp know f I will be a candidate for re-electioVi to Congress, is now before me, and in reply I lave to say that I will not. At the Congressional Convention, held in Barnesville, on the first day of Sept., 1852, at which Col. Walton was nomina ted as the Democratic candidate, one of the delegates from Belmont county offered the two following resolutions: . "Resolved, That as the counties of Bel mont, Guernsey, Monroe and Noble con stitute the 17th Congressional District, and are each entitled to their full share of Con gressional honors, that each county is en tilled to the nomination of a candidate for Congress for one term during the present apportionment; and that said counties hereby pledge themselves to each other that in whichever of said counties the said candidate is nominated at this Convention or at any subsequent Congressional Con vention for this District, such countv re ceiving said nomination will not present a candidate ipr nomination until one shall have been taken from each of the other of said counties... . . . . r ?' Resolved, .That no person shall be a candidate at this or any subseauent Con- gressional Convention of this District, who will not pledge himself to sustain the fore going resolution." . .- These resolutions met with my approve at tne time, ana received, l believe, lb unanimous vote of the Belmont delegation, and were adopted by a large majority in the Convention. f They were offered and adopted for the purpose of restoring har mony in the Democratic party, and remov ing that jealousy and distrust which had, unfortunately, existed between the several counties ot the District for several years previous; the result of which had been that our District, although decidedly Demo cratic, had been represented by a Whig for the our preceding years. So far as I am concerned, I consider myself in honor bound to adhere to these resolutions in good faith, and I shall do so. I will do no act which may be calculated to disturb the harmony of the Democratic party, and re-open those fueds and diffi culties which had proved so disastrous in previous years. I will take this occasion to tender to my Democratic friends in the District, and es pecially to my Democratic friends in your county, mysincere thanks for the gener ous support which I have, on sli-occasions when a candidate, received from them. You are at liberty to publish this letter. 1 have the honor to be, Yours, with great respect, WILSON SHANNON. Fusion. A fusion between the Whig and Freesoil parties is to be consumated, if the labors of some of the leading Whig and Freesoil papers can accomplish it. In fact an effort is to be made to unite all factions and par ties that stand in opposition to the erreat o Democratic party of this country. A State Convention is called to be held in Columi us on the 13th of July, to inaugurate a Party of the People!" Now what is all this for? Is it to promote any great inter est of this State to compel the Banks, for instance, to pay taxes as the private citizen s compelled to do? Is it to take into consid- ration what is to be done when the over- rown money power has become above the Constitution and laws "of Ohio? Or is it to declare that the people of a territory are incapable of self-government; or that Con gress shall dictate to them by what laws they shall be governed? We do not believe that the Democracy of this county, or of the State, are prepared to forsake their old organization or their old friends, and unite with the Whigs and reesoilers. What good could be accom plished by it? Do they expect to repeal the Nebraska-Kansas bill? No. There s not a man in the State, who is aware of the organization of the Senate of the Uni ted States, who will for a moment contend that that can be done. There is in that body a majority of two to one in favor ol the bill,, and there, is no prospect of a change for many: years to come. VVhai then is the object of this new party? W confess we can see in it no other object than that of "spoils," or that, those now out" of office may become the 'in8." t is simply, then, a war of the "outs" against the ins." And into this war the eaders of the whig and freesoil parlies will endeavor to draw the rank and file of their parties. But, unless we are much mistaken, there are hundreds and thou sands of old line whigs who will depreeate any such movement. They will enter into no arrangement out of which they cannot come but with "a loss of both strengh and reputation." Hear what that sturdy old whig paper, the Pittsburgh American, says: " The Whigs, more particularly of Alle gheny', have everything to lose and nothing to gain by 'wandering in mental blindness Irom their own firm and broad plaifocftid and the principles and- spirit of their'or- gahization, to lake ground on any of the ephemeral and narrow planks of the isms arising always around ms. No move, ol this kind can ever be made without a loss of both strength and reputation, as such mo ves will ever be regarded, and justly, as a partial abandonment of our own ground, or an admission that it is no longer tenable and requires this particular, new issue to prop it at the time. Does any Whig ad mit of this unsoundness of his party's con stitution and its damaged state?. .Such a thing will be scorned by every Whig. Why then do they apply to it the unseem- y and unsightly patches of every new col ored ism that rises?" On the subject of the fusion" ;the Statesman and Democrat says: , The evidences of a general and con certed effort throughout ' the country to consolidate all the factions which made up the opposition to the election of Pierce and King, are constantly multiplying. Fusion is every where the order of the day. All the malcontents, whose appe tites for political power have been quick ened by a protracted abstinence, are mar shaling their forces under the banner of alone idea to make common cause against the Democratic party." Whig and Free Soil editors, but recently engaged in acrim onious strife, are every where consolida ting or co-operating. Whenever, as in Connecticut, the opposition elements can overwhelm the Democracy by combina lion, they form alliances and divide the patronage. In our own otate, the coali lion between the incongruous elements of the opposition, appears as substantial as the famous reconciliation between Mr. and Mrs. Micawber and the twins. The Ohio Slate Journal and other kindred prints have apparently struck the flag of Whiggery, and now regard only fusion, and spoils. That paper "asks not for the co-operation of the Free De mocracy or of the Old Domocracy as distinct bodies," buUt invokes "the De mocracy of numbers, the friends of liberty every where,' and all parties, to' take hold of this work " &6. r The DISORGANI ZATION and CONQUEST of the Demo cratic party is the object sought by the Stale Journal heme entirely indifferent as to the means or the tools employed for the purpose. Accordingly, he Journal and all the Whig. Free Sod and Abolition papers of Ohio, heartily indorse (he call iaaun dbv Messrr. Giddings, Wade and others, from their head-quarters at Wash inpton. for a State Convention to assem ble in this city on the 13th proximo, for the purnose of fiohtinir the battle of the i - o o . Nebraska-Kansas bill over again, and-of organizing an exclusively sectional party. The. Cleveland Herald says that at this forthcoming Convention will be t'inaugU' rated the parly of the People." And the L,eaaer ot that city responds, "We are ready for one for the inauguration of the farly of the People, and, burying all dif ferences of the past, and all divisions of the present, will labor with our neighbor. and with the true men of every party, to insure its triumph in Ohio and in the na tion." And what is the object of this 'People's Party?" What practical end is to be attained? Can any one engaged in the movement indulge a reasonable hope that the repeal of the Nebraska- Ivansas act can be accomplished? Wo! the object, the practical end, is the re surrection of Whiggery under a newname, and the gratification of its thirst for the spoils of office. There are good men en gaged in this movement, who are unques tionably governed by nigh and pure mo tives; but when they discover that the whole thing is only a scheme to overthrow the Democratic parly, andL,to restore the supremacy of Whiggery, under its new alias, they will refuse to lend themselves to the intrigue. Many democratic papers in this State that warmly opposed the repeal of the Mis souri Compromise, are now as warmly op posed to any "fusion" of the Democratic with the Whig and Freesoil parties. The I editor of the Statesman "and Democrat, on this subject, says: "We were opposed to the re-opening of this slavery agitation by the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. We continued to oppose it until the passage of the bill ren dered opposition unavailing. But no ra tional man can for a moment entertain the thought that any effort for repeal can be successful. We are opposed to this out cry for repeal, for reasons similar to those which led us to oppose the disturbance of the compromises. The best interests of the -country demand that this sectional controversy, and these efforts to establish sectional parties, should be arrested by the indignant frowns of the people. . . "This idea of making the law organizing the Territories of Nebraska and Kansas a basis upon which to establish a political party, is one which never would have en tered the minds of any but politicians of the most desperate fortunes. There are live issues before the people of Ohio, di rectly affecting their present and future in terests; and from a consideration of these' issues, no considerable, portion of the Democratic-party will suffer themselves to be led off into a chase after this Nebraska ignis fd'.uus, which has risen at the beck of Whig and Abolition politicians, who are seeking only a political resurrection.' The Steubenville Union, a paper which steadily opposed the Nebraska bill, now says: : ' . : "We feel satisfied that the further agi tation of this question in the. hope of se curing a repeal, will result in no good. It will only serve to add fuel to the flame o! sectional strife , and commotion,, and oe stroy, perhaps, for. all time to come, that peace and harmony which should prevail between the dilterent sections of our coun try.'!
