EST" "We will commence to morrow tho publi cation of a very authentic and interesting biogra phy of James Buchanan. We intend printing a large number of extra copie3 of our next weekly so as to supply Buch new subscribers as may desire to peruse this interesting document MR. BUCHANAN'S ANTECEDENTS. The opposition papers for the last few days clear ly indicate the manner in which the ensuing can- xass is to be' conducted. At the North Mr. Buceaiun is to be denounced for his long and con sistent defence of the South to equal rights unier the Constitution as a "dough-face" a "truckling subservient tool to the slave .power" and "the candidato, par excellence, of the slavery extension ists." All the fanaticism, religious and political; all the bigotry from the pulpit and the pres?, are to be opened upon him. The horrors of all the Kan eos trouble?, the assault upon Sumser, the dread of . a Southern oligarchy, are to be painted in the most vivid colors, as the consequences of the ele vation of the Democratic party to power, and as being .sought to have carried out by the elevation of Mr.BccnASAit to the Presidency. This is the character of opposition that the National mn of the North will have to encounter in their section. It will be very different in ths South. Here the batteries are already opened against him as a " vile Abolitionist," and an "opponent of Southern rights. Our readers may expect nothing else but this character of detrtction. It will come by the , column. Old, stale and scandalous charges, long buried in the rubbish of the past, a thousand times refuted and put to the shame, will be disinterred and revamped anew for the present political exi gency. And it will not be done in a bungling man ner, nor without a seeming plausibility this could but be expected cf men whose life-time occupation has been the dirty work of detraction. Similar charges, with equal plausibility, have been prefer red against every candidate that the Democratic! party has, from time to time, presented to the coun try, from Thomas Jeitebsor, the great apostle cf Democncy, to the present period. We desire for the present simply to remind our readers that these (now) stale charges were fresh in the'days of Mr. Monroe, and yet Mr. Buchanan retained the confidence of that good man. That they were circulated end understood during the administration of Gen. Jackson, and yet he re mained a bosom friend of that old Hero and Statesman to the hour of his death. That the most active part of his history was contempora neous with that of James K Polk, who gave him the most exalted pesition in his cabinet That he has remained to this day one among the most honored Statesmen of the Democratic party, 1 and as such was appointed by President Pierce to represent our Government at the most important foreign court. That ho has been long known to the Virginia school of Democratic Statesmen, and was therefore nominated by her delegation in the recent National Convention at Cincinnati, and was endorsed, unanimously, by every State from South Carolina to New Hampshire. Such a man, so long known to the history of the country, so long a participant in her political strug gles, so generally respected and tried by each suc cessive Administration of our party, since his first entrance into public, put forward at such a time and under such circumstances, needs no defence against the puny assaults of men whose daily bread depends upon the success with which they can assail and sully the great names of the living and the dead, that may chance to rise up between them and their unholy ambition. We intend, however, in a short time, as a mat ter of history, to publish tlw biography of JamE3 Buchanan; and with it a full and complete refu tation of nil the charges that rankling malignity has, from time to time, spit out against him. THE WAY THE NOMINATIONS ABE RECEIVED. As far as wo have any information from the dif ferent sections of this and other States, the nomi nations of our invincible ticket is hailed with the greatest enthusiasm. The Louisville Times expresses lhs greatest con fidence in the Democracy carrying Kentucky by ten thousand majority 1 Very extensive prepara tions are being made in Lcu'svilie for a grand rati fication meeting to-night. We have had the pleasure of meeting, within the last day or two, persons from several of the adjoining counties, all of whom bring us assu rances from the country of the fullest confidence and zeal with the Democracy in their respective sections. A friend writing us from Murfreesboro, says: Mubfreesboro', Tenn., June 7. Duxxington, Union and American: Dear Sir For your promptness in forwarding despatches, please accept our thanks. The nomination is well received here. The whole country will respond to the nomination of Old Buck of the Keystone of the Arch. The gallant and talented Kentuckian will be heartily supported. W e now have a strong team. Of course the Tennessee and Southern Delegations, on their return, will be received in a proper man. ner at Nashville. ggy Geo. P. Buel, E-q., editor of the Demo cratic Review, who was stabbed at Cincinnati du ring the f ession of the recent Convention, is still in a very critical condition, the blade having entered the back, penetrating the lung. Mr. Buel was making a speech, and having been interrupted sev eral times by know-nothing bullies and black guards, he advanced upon one of them and during the melee was stabbed by some one from behind. They have not keen able to identify the villain. From tho Washington Star we learn that the know nothings stirred up a small riot in that city over the recent flections, by preventing the for eigners from coming to the polls. Similar rowdyism was occasioned at New Or leans, adopted citizens being intimidated and driven from the polls. This is Americanism, with a ven geance. fjO" The New York Etrald says that the Na tional Know-Nothing Council, now in session in that dry, have under consideration whether or not Mr. Filuiorc shall be continued on the track for tho Presidency, in view of the existing state of sffsirr. STEPPING-STONES FROM ONE JSl TO THE 0 THER. Hesrt M FcLLra came to Congress upon the j nmi-Nebraski Kacsw excitement, def atirg Hen j drioS3 B. Wrwht, one or tho rno?t rutiocal men ( of the North, who bid s:a'-i d his fete.' upon ten j measure of justice to t'e Sauth. Banks the abo lition member of Congress frcm Mssaclusjtts, got there upon the same furcr Fuller wa3 taken up by the K. N 'a 83 their candidato for Speaker. Fuller vctd for Pen nington and Penhisot;n for Baks. Haven, of New York, Mr. Fillmcki's law part ner, and representative in Con' tiss, and personal and political confidant and i dviser, and who voted tojestore the Miss oari Compromise, voted awhile for Fuller and then vcted for the notorious aboli tionist Lewis D. Campbell, of Ohio. When Fillmore was nominated, the same Lew is D. Campbell attended a ratification meeting in Washington, arm-in-arm with Mr. Ceittendsh. The American Organ, at Washington applauded and complimented Mr. Campbell. Tho Organ is vouched for by Southern JL N. members of Con gress, as the "authorized exponent of their party principles. The Organ and the Louisville Journal denounced the repeal of the Missouri Compromise line and demanded its restoration. The New York Tri bune and all ths Black Republican papers, do the same thing. The K. N. Convention at Philadelphia denouncsd the Administrajion for the repeal of the Missouri line. The Black Republican Convention, sitting at Pittsburg at that time, did the same thing. The negro worshipping paper j are charging that the Southerners have Invaded Kansas by armed hordes and driven out, by force, the peaceable free State citkens of that territory. Southern K. N. journals have raised the same cry. The Black Republicans are appealing to all sec tions to unite in crushing out the slave-Democracy, in order to "bring the government back" to its original stand-point. Ths K. N.'s are doing the same through their papers and their public speak ers. TheK. N.'a in their Philadelphia Convention as sailed the Democrats, but whispered not a syllable 8gainst Black Republicans. TheBIsck Republi cans in their Pittsburg Convention Bssailed the Democrats, but said not a word rgainst the Know Nothings. In the Ohio Legislature, the K. N.'s went to the aid of the Black Republicans and assisted them in electing their candidate for the United States Sen ate over the National Democrat. In' the recent Connecticut Legislature, npon the suggestion of. Horace Greeley, the Bhck Republicans went to the rescu3 of the K. N.'s and enabled them to de feat Senator Toucr, one of the best friends the South ever had from the North. The K. N.'s have been strong in the North ; so have the Black Republicans. The Black Republi cans find a foot-hold in but two slave-holding States Maryland and Kentucky. The Know Nothings have carried but two slave-holding States Maryland and Kentucky. Bhck Republicanism has excited a dangerous fanaticism among the preachers. Know-Nothing-ism has resulted in the same thing. Each have carried politics into the pulpit. Each have banded men together by secrecy and oaths. Both are vio lent, prosciptive and dangerous. One has had its mobs end riots, and tho other its rebellion and civil war. Such is the striking similarity, the evident con geniality, the close proximity and the easy grada tion from the one dargerous ism to the other. Let the well-meaning men of both orders reflect and take warning, ere the cay and the hour come upon them when it will be too late to repent AMERICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION. It was stated under our telegraphic head, a few days since, that this body (which is separate and distinct from tho nominating convention) assembled in New York on Tuesday and oreanized. 'Among those in attendance are the Hon. J. Mormon Harris, of Mi., Mr. Prentice of the Louisville Jour nal, Hon. Mr. Haven, the law partner of Mr. Fill more, and several members of Congress. Mr. Williams, of Maryland, was appointed sentinel or door-keeper. Delegaffts were present from Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Kentucky. Tennessee, California, Illinois, Virginia, Ohio, Mis souri, Arkansas ana Pennsylvania. The President, after some preliminary business, stated that in accordance with the constitution and ritual of the Older the delegates who had been admitted would receive the pass-word by which they could be admitted to the Council Hon. Humphrey Marshall remarked that he thought all secrecy bad been done away with by the council at Philadelphia. He was opposed to any more pass-words or secrecy ol any kind con cernine their doings. The President said that the Constitution- and ri tual required it, and therefore it must be done. Gentlemen could move that the pass-word and Becrecy he removed afterwards if they were so disposed. Messrs. Dannenhower and Alexander were ap pointed to impart tne talisman to tne members. Mr. Alexander , (from Maryland,) took 'the right side, and Mr. Dannenhower the left of the hall, and the delegates were called up one by one who received the word with becoming seriousness. When the pass-word had been given, Hon. Humphrey Marshall renewed his motion to do away with pass-words and secrecy. Mr. Underwood said he had drawn up a resolu tion to the effect that pass-words should not be. required, and that all secrecy should be removed from that time, concerning the proceedings of the Council, Mr. Alexander, of Maryland, thought the resolu tion came in at too early a stage of the meeting. He would have it deferred until the countested seats were settled, and a larger number of dele gates present. Mr. Marshall said he did not know how many contested seats there were, and he could not see how they would be affected by it. He did know, however; that they had their candidate in the field, .that they were a political party, and, expecting their candidato to be supported by the people, he thought it was high time that the secrecy which had been their mantle duriog infancy should be removed. If it was their intention now to go back to secrecy they must take down their flag. He wanted New York to hear what they were doing, and what they intended to do; he wanted to know himself what they mtenaeaio ao, anune wouiacave their doings go out to the people upon the four winds of heaven. They nan euuerea irom nothing so muc as from the impression that they were working m the dark and keeping their doings from their fellow citizens; therefore he was anxious that that delu sion shculd be removed. It was thought by some Americans that they intended to droop the flag of Fillmore, while they intended to do no such thing. They had raised 'it, and he wanted a public fight and a strong fight under it. Mr. Alexander said ho agreed with Mr. Mar shall in the sentiments he had uttered, but he thought it was yet too soon to pass such a motion. Ho was desirous that all the delegates should be present and have an opportunity of expressing their opinions and voting upon it. He was not only willing that New York should know what they were doing, but he wanted the whole Union to know it, Mr. Underwood believed it to be for the best to set aside the mantle of secrecy which had protected" tneir infancy, and he believed .the house was prepared to set it aside, f Applause. He would therefore move the adoption of Mr. Marshall's pro position. Mr. Marshall said he would accept the resolu tion Mr. Underwood had read. He wished to go to the extent of abolishing all secrecy. Mr. Richardson, of Maryland, wished to ask whether or not, if the resolution should pass, any man could come in and vote. Mr. Marshall No more than in Congress. Mr. Richardson made the inquiry because he saw that in Cincinnati they had been knocking down the doorkeeper, in order to get into the con vention. He did not anticipate any thing of that character in this convention, but he thought there were some family matters, sujh as the ap pointment of committees of correspondence, which should be done in private. The debate WM'continued np to tha hour of ad- jBruosint, NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. LAST DAYS PROCEEDINGS.,, j , ..y CixorasATi, June G At 10 o'clock, the President called the '.Conven tion to order. Tbe.hall was not full when the bal loting commenced.- When Maine was c tiled.' her vdte wasisv't 7 for Bachanan, and one for Pierce When V.rmont was called, Mr Hibbard, of N. H rose and 8id that by unanimous vote, the dilegation, having thu3 far supported Pierce, had determined to cast her vote for that gentleman, who represented the present administration, jhe choice of Illinois, Stephen A. Dooglas. Applause. North Caro lina led off the same track for the aoutb, followed by South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, and Tex8. Tennessee cast her IS votes for Bu chanan Pierce ran down to three vo'e3. The New York Softs also went over to Douglas on the sixteenth ballot, Maine concentrated her 8 votes on Buchanan, Ohio also give him two more ; Ken tucky cast all her votes tor Douglas, having pre viously given him but 7. The half votes were rejected by tho Chair, a point having been raised in consequence of Ohio having cast half a vote for Cass ' After the announcement of the result, Mr. Pres ton, cf Kentucky; said that he had stood firmly by Douglas to this point, but he felt confident the sense ot the. Convention demanded the nomina tion of James Buchanan. (Immense disorder and cries of no, no, no.) He wa3 confident the friends of Douglas would best consult his wishes by yield ing at once and cheerfully to the wishes of the Convention. (Cries for Illinois to speak.) Mr. Richardson, of Illinois, said that without ad vising any gentleman what it is his duty to do, felt ha had a duty to perform to his constituents and the candidate he represented. (Cries of "don't withdraw him 1") He felt that be could not con tribute to the success of his party or carry out the views of Mr. Douglas, by continuing him longer in the contest. (Immense applause.) He had re ceived a letter from Mr. Douglas which he desired to have read, and afier that be would withdraw his name. He then read a telegraphic despatch from Douglas stating that, from telegraphic ac counts, he felt confident that a longer continuance of his name before the Convention would tend to disturb the harmony of the Convention, tnd he de sired to withdraw, simply stating that he believed the democracy would do well to unite and voto for one of the candidates, now before the Convention, Pierce or Buchanan. (Immense cheering.) Gov. Seymour rose and endeavored to address the Convention, but was for some time prevented by the uproar and confusion. After a while he was heard. He said that the democracy of New lone naa, up to wis time, been united on one point in the propriety of adhering to one or the other of the nominees. They had adhered to P.erce as Ion? as be bad a vote in the convention. Tbey had then cast their votes for Mr. Douglas That candidate now having withdrawn himself, the .New York bolts desired to do all in their pow erto harmonise and consolidate tho vote of the con vention. (Immense applause.) The 17 th ballot was then taken. New Hamp shire cast her vote for Buchanan ; Mr. Hibbard making a speech in explanation. Every delegate who rose bad something to say. Mr. Ludlow, for the Softs of New York, said, although the Softs had come into tha Convention under every disadvantage, they had n5 desire to do aught to promote the countenance of any faction in the great State of Hew York. They therefore cist 18 votes lor James Buchanan. Immediately the ballot commenced, Capt, Rynder's gun com menced roaring forth the announcement to the out' aiders. The Convention continued in a state of the wild est excitement, as State after State gave a plum per for the nominee. Mr. W. W. Avery, of North Carolina, said thit North Carolina loved Buchanan, and reminded them that four years ago he bad been their first choice, ihey then yielded him cheertully, as they now yield Pierce and Douglas. North Carolinia came here with a desire to support the candidates who had proved themselves tha trust to the Union and the Constitution. For this end they had cast their votes lust tor .Fierce, and then lor Douglas. They now give their entire vote to tiuchanan. Sam. Medary congratulated the Convention that Unto had no longer fractional votes to cast. Up on tho platform of the Convention, Ohio is willing to fight under any nominee. Although a warm friend ot the Little liiant ot the VV est, none would yield more cheerfully than himself, and he could say the same for the entire delegation. As Ohio had been exact hitherto in mathematically dividing her vote, she would now be quite as exact in cast in? her entire number for Buchanan. He plecVed the State of Ohio for the favorite of Pennsylvania. Uol. Ktchardson, ot Illinois, said that every mem ber of the convention has endorsed the political course of Douglas. Any man might be proud of this ; and he could assure the convention that, 'while Illinois choice was of courss her favorite son. yet she yielded to no State in appreciation of the political character ot Jas. .Buchanan. Mr. Flournoy, of Ark., pledged the largest com- parativa majority iu the Union for the nominee, particularly if the choice of Arkansas for Vice President should be satisfied. Their candidate is Gen. Quitman, of Mississippi. Mr. Inge, of CaL. said the delegation from his State came here with the choice of every member bxed on the present nominee, but they came also with instructions to secure an expression of the convention in favor of some eaiy means of com munication between tha Atlantic and the PaciSc coast. Interruption. Mr. Inge, "having received permission, proceed ed to comment ably and eloquently on the import ance and necessity for such communication. He thanked the Convention for kindness in hearing those who had come so tar who had braved ma laria tropics and the dangers of the ocean to meet democratic bretbern here. He believed that Mr Buchanan did not concur in the opposition of the exercise of all the constitutional powers to secure easy postal communication Deiween the oceans, They cast four votes for Buchanan. John L. Dawson, in a happy speech, expressed the thanks of Pennsylvania for the honor done her through those endorsements ot ber favorite son. After he had taken bis seat, he rose again and said that in reviewing the claims of candidates, he had forgotten to mention the name ot franklin Pierce. (Laughter and cheers.) He then declared his approval of the course of the Administration, which would receive from the people on retirement' "well done good and faithful servant. The vote was then announced, being 29C for Buchanan. Immense cheering followed, which did not cease until three tremendous cheers had been given for the nominee, threa equally enthusiastic one3 tor Douglas, and three moderate ones for Pierce. A motion to nominate'a candidate for the Vice Presidency and then adjourn till 2 P. M , was made and withdrawn, and a motion to adjourn was lost. Col Black, of Penn., having the floor, returned thanks for ti.o unanimous vote which had been cast for James Buchanan. His remarks pledging Penn sylvania to constant devotion to the Union, were well received. He desired to say to the convention, in order to put them right on one point, and 83 he had already been identified with matrimonial ques tions here, that, although Mr. Buchanan had not in his own person fulfilled that duty which every man should fill, there was a reason for it which would doubtless be satisfactory. From the time he had arrived at a marrying age he had been wed ded to the Constitution of his country, and in Penn sylvania they did not permit bigamy. A resolution endorsing Pierce's administration was then introduced by Mr. Hallet, of Massachu setts, chairman of the committee on resolutions. Upon the question being put, some nays responded, but the President declared the vote unanimous in the affirmative. Mr. Peck, of Michigan, said be protested against such a decision; he would never consent that the great north west should be slandered and stultified by the supposition that she endorses tho adminis tration of Pierce. Mr. Wright, of Ps., hoped that the minority re port of N. Y. would be stricken from the minutes, and that, in order that all differences might be set tled, he would offer a resolution recommending both sections to agree upon holding a State convention to settle the organization and make preparation for nominating a single electoral ticket. Judge Beardsley, on the part of the Hards, as sured the Convention that the National democratio party of New York would work cheerfully and per sistently for the success of the ticket, for the union of the pirty, and the settlement of all past difficul ties. Mr. Ludlow, of New York, expressed similar views on the part of the Softs. Gov. Seymour arose and was received with loud applause. He made an able and conciliatory speech, alladiog to the time when the democracy of New York was a unit, and promising a return to those halcyon days. The resolution was then adopted. The Convention adjourned to halfpajt2 o'clock. .CiscrsNAW, June 6 First ballot this morning.

Cincinnati, June 6, P. M The Convention be ing called to order, Mr. Shields, of Mo., moved that it is the duty of the Government, so for as the CoLStitution will permit, to aid in the construc tion of a safe overland mail route between the At lantic ard Pacific coasts. A moticn to lay the resolution on the table was y lost ayes 75, nays 220. A delegate from Missouri rose to demand a sui pention cf tha rules. Mr. Ptttit, of Itdiana, endeavored to speak on the propriety of an amendment, declaring it the juty of the general Government to uss all proper constitutional power, for the objeot named, but was notheird. The motion to suspend the rules for the purpose of enter twining the resolution, was carried, by aye3, 205t nays 87. At Mr. Pettit's suggestion, the word "proper," was placed before "constitutional" in the resolution before its passage. A motion to proceed to ballot for Vice President was adopted. Mr. Meade, of Va., proposed Lynn Boyd of Ky. Mr. Harris, of Ills, begged to propose a man who, though born on the banks of the Hudson, now resided on the tanks of the Mississppi. It had been his pride to serve under his command in a regi ment from Illinois that never turned their backs on friends or foes. He was the first to plant the American flag over the halls of the Montezumas. He named Gen. Quitman. Col. Lewis, of La, named Jno. C. Breckenridge, ofKy. Mr. Breckenridge returned thanks to Louisiana fcr the honor cenferred upon him, but was one of those who believed that promotion should be from eeniority; and besides, being a candidate for elector who should advocate the candidate of this conven tion and its noble State right platform, he withdrew his name. B. Chapman, of Ala, nominated Benj. Fitzpat rick of Ala. Brown, of Tenn., proposed Aaron V Brown, of Teen. A delegate from N. C. nominated Jas. A.Sedden, of Va. Mr. Sedden, returning thanks for the honor, withdrew his name. Avery, of N. 0 , then presented the name of Jas. 0. Dobbins of N. C. Underwood, of Ga., nominated H. V. Johnson, of Ga. Tha roll being called Maine nominated Gen. Rusk, of Texas. Mr. Falltt immediately withdraw his nam by authority. Thruston Polk, of Mo., was nominated by a de legate from Del., but was subsequently withdrawn. The roll being called, Vermont cast her v te for Breckenridge, ot" Ky. New York being called. 18 votes were announ ced for Quitman by Ludlow. Cockran immediate ly rose and said the vote was not correct. A little by play took place. One delegate said he wanted to vote independently. The President said he would receive no vote ex cept from the Chairman of the delegation. Judge Beardsley cast 17 Hard votes for Senetor Beard, of Del Va. cast her vote for Breckenridge, of Ky. III. voted for Quitman, of Miss. CaL announced her vote for A. V. Brown. After the first ballet: Del withdrew the name of Beard, of Del. A delegate from Cj.. begged to say that if the Convention south of Mason and Dixon's Line could agree on a candidate. Ct. would go for her candidate, if not, he had the name of a distingui shed son, lsaao Tousey to propose. Another delegate said that was not so. Ct. re served the name of Tousey for higher game, The came of Brown, of Tenu. was withdrawn and tho vote of Tenn. cast for Ereckenridge. Several other States then changed for Brecken ridge, and admidst the excitement Miss, withdrew Quitman acd recorded ber vote for Breckenridge. Beardsley for the N. Y. Hards changed votes from Botler to Breckenridge. Tne vote was then announced as) follows. Breckenridge 29G. The nomination was unanimous and received immense applause. Mr. Breckenridge being loudly called for, look tho stand amidst deafening cheering, and said the result was quite unexpected to him in a personal aspect of it. He had no words to express his pro found gratitude. He felt, too, this mark of honor and confidence from the Democrats of the United States. Be did not intend to make a speech, but only to return thanks from his heart upon the honor done him With respect to the first nomination, he could only say, that Mr. Buchanan had lived down detraction and calumny, and was now about to be crowned with the highest honor to be con ferred on an American citizen. He desired to say generally that he was a state-rights delega'o, and that he trusted if elected to tho high office for which he was nominated, he should never do any thing to forfeit the high trust reposed in him. Mr. Preston, of Kentucky, being called upon, spoke as follows: Mr. President: I cannot but feel deeply sensible of the honor which th-s Convention has conferred upon me by its call. The great Democratic,party of the Union, has this day assembled here, and an nounced their principles to the country, and, as representatives of those principles, have nominated Jas. Buchanan, of Pennsylvania, and J. C. Breck enridge of Kentucky, for President and Vice Presi dent of these United btates. The exultations with which these nominations have been received, prove to me, how deep and earnest are the intentions of the Democracy in the approaching contest, to vindicate their views, and achieve a victory. I heard the annunciation which proclaimed the veteran statesman, of Pennsylvania, as the Democratic candidate of the Democratio party, ring through this hall, admidst the applause of the delegations of tho thirty-two Stite3, and hailed it as au auspicious omen of victory ; but when the name ot my old comrado in ether lacdj, and a bosom-friend, was added for the second office to the ticket, then the deepest gratification thrilled my heart. He is endeared to us by many cherish ed memories, and, wo can but regard, with heart felt pride, this evidence of this appreciation of bis countrymen. Perhaps, Mr. President, Kentucky has usurped mora than her share of her honors in this conven tion. Jas. Buchanan was a son of her early adop tion; for a time he was a citizsn of that State, and however short was the period of his citizen ship, his subsequent renown causes us to treasure up the recollection with honest prido. The other nominee is a native of the State the grandson of that John Breckenridge who intro duced the memorable resolution of 1793, which yet constitutes the foundation of State rights creed. The purity of his life and energy of his intellect commanded the respect and confidence of our people of this present generation. With such a ticket Kentucky will move forward with the same generosity of impulse for tho redemption of the country that marked her straggles for the statesman of Ashland, and the news of this nomination, which is now being transmitted by telegraph to her people, will be read with accla mations of joy and triumph. But why do I stand here to-day ? Why is it necessary for me to respond to the call of this Con vention, belonging but a short time since to the old honored organization the honorable adversary of the Democratic party on the great questions of pub lic nnlicv ? I find that organization dissolved, and myself and thousands of others driven for repose and maintenance of our Constitutional rights, into thn rank of nur former ooDonents. The last two years have witnessed the dissolution of the Whig party and a deluge of fanatical factions which threatened to overwhelm the equal rights of the States, Constitution, country and prosperity of the people. I am one of those two or three thousand old Whigs who, disclaiming the shallow heresies and proscriptive tenets of the miscalled American party scorned all duplicity, abjured all compro- i znise, and rather chose to stand in honorable aDi anee with our former opponents in defease of that Constitution whleh mikes us cce people, thas to take senseless and absurd oaths upon the wretefeeS ritual of the know-nothing party. During this time the Democrats have proved themselves equal to their ancient reputation, but it is enviable fortune to aid in battle and share in the Klory of the victory. It is not the acquisition of Louisiana with her fertile boundless plain; nor the annexation of Texas which extended our empire still farther Southward; not the planting of our standard upon tha turrets of Mexico or .the golden snores of Californis. which will equal in moment or importance that great contest upon which it is now about to enter tor the preservation of our internal tranqoilty, the maintenance of our laws, the resto ration, concord and perpetuation of the great poli tical system bequeathed to us by our revolutionary fathers. ( In this they stand embattled against all adversaries, defiant in their patriotism, energetic in virtue, conscious of the purity of its motives and assured that they will maintain them in inexpugn able strength against every adversary of Republi canism. In that battle not less than two hundred thousand earnest, most deserted adherents of the old Whig party, will be found standing by them shoulder to shoulder, animated by no hope but that of the public welfare, forgetful of the past, hoping only by a bold, fearless alliance to assure in the approaching Presidential contest. Before I resume my seat I trust the Convention will pardon me for alluding to another portion of the Democratic party, many of whose leaders I see assembled around me to day, who were in that tempest of fury and fanaticism which burst loose upon the country upon the passage of the Kansas Nebrask act. In that time that tried men's souls when brave men shrank, turned and stood still, when Douglass, of Illinois, the first of all the band of-statesmen.with splendid incupidity led the for lorn hope for the restoration of the equal rights of States, many of the first men in the country were leaders who I now see around me. In the same spirit they came forward for the maintenance of the true doctrine of Democracy. The storm burst upon them in all violence. They stood with the steadfast courage of the three hundrad at Thermopylae and braved its fury. They were left prostrate on the field of public affairs, and if they should ever ri?e again they might claim to have inscribed on their monuments the words that commemorated the fate of the defenders of Greece, "Go, stranger." We hail them as the leaders in the approaching contest. We stand here to-day, Mr. President, 'midst the mostimposing assembly it has ever been my for tune to behold I stand among the delegates of the thirty-two States, demonstrating their nation ality both by the unanimity with which they de clare principles and announce candidates. No other party in the land can challenge equality, and at Lacy demon tell that here, obedient to her laws, we fell. But I cannot believe that such will be the result of their patriotic courage. I believe it is not dead, but only for a time overthrown, and that the Democracy here around me will lift them in their arms, bind up their wounds, and, amidst the clangor of the fight, I claim for them superiority not equality and rest superiority on nationality. No factions divide us; no discordant ideas rend us ; and standing here in Cincinnati, and looking at the shore of my native Kentucky, can say with truth, no geographical line, no mountains, no river severs our party. Under these views, Mr. Presi dent, I, as one of the old Whigs, and there are thousands of others, who will embark in this cam paign, come in unconnected with any traditional glories of Democracy, without any of its achieve ments emblazoned on our shields, but we come determined to ride deep into the ranks of the foes that beleague us, and to win our spurs upon the held Mr. Petit, of Ind., spoke in favor of the nomiua tions made by the Convention, pledging Indiana. largely lor them. Mr. Richardson, of 111., moved the appointment of a Committee of nine to inform the nominees of their nomination Carried.

Also, that the State Convention to be h Id in New York, have the authority to nomina'e a delegate from that State on the National Democratic Committee. Judge Beardsley, of N. Y , asked the Conven tion to adopt all the resolutions exc pt that one authorizing the btate Committee in N. 1., toap point a member of the Nati nal Committee. Leave N. Y., to manage her own quarrels in her own way. He moved to strike out that resolution. Lidlow, of New York, said if that portion of the report was so unimportant, why oppose its Ed ption : It is proposed by that resolu'ion, that in the firs State Convention they shall have tho power to elect a member of the Committee. He hoped the resolution would prevail. He had offered to the Hards the names of Gov. Seymour and .Dean Richmond, as the member of that Committee, but both had been rejected. Mr. Meade, ot Va., proposed that each delega tion from New York appoint a member for that Committee, and that the Chairman of this Conven tion be authorized to draw lots to see which shall be the member. A delegate from Maryland suggested the name ol uen. Aaron Ward, as a member ot the com mittee, deening it unworthy of the character and dignity of the Convention to draw such lots. The motion to draw lots was sustained, and Lud low, on the part of the Softs, declined to go into the game of chance. There being, therefore, but one name in the hat, Augustus Sche I, that gentleman was declared a member of the general committee.

I wish you, and aif my friends to Dear in mind that I have a thousand fold more anxiety for the tr.umph of our principles than for my own personal elevation. If the withdrawal ot my name will contribute to the harmony of our party, for the success of our cause, I hopeyou will not hesi tate to take the step.

I received on yesterday a note from 3. it Rose, Esq., at Lawrence burg, in reference to a letter written by me to him, alluded to in my communica-. tion published in your paper last week. Mr. Rssx states that " the letter has not been out of his pos session and that it has not been copied or any por tions of it." I cheerfully make the correction in accordance with his statement. I had no wish cr inclination to do Mr. Rose or any one else any in justice. The contents of the letter were detailed here, coupled with the assertion that the letter it self was here, and upon this way my statement was based. A large portion cf this community were led into the sama error, to whom the con tents of the letter were detailed, and who were informed that the latter itself was here. AU this was so positive that I had not the slighest sus picion to the contrary. Jons A- Tctsos. How ths Platform was Received.

The Anti-Know-Nothing clauses were heard with fierce and noisy approbation. The slavery clauses were given doubla rounds of stamping and cheers.
