A Hhort Biography of Jamea K. Polk,
The Candidate or the Democratic Party FOR the Presidency. Since Mr. Polk has received tlio nomination of the Democratic party for the office of Presi dent, the events of his life and his public ca reer have became matters of public interest. Wo find a brief biographical ske'eh in the New York Plebeian, a Democratic paper, which pur ports to give the public career of this gent Io nian, which we transfer to our columns for the satisfaction of those who are not so well acquain ted with the history of his life and action. Mr. Dallas is too well known in this communi ty to render such a biography necessary, and wherever he is known he is generally admired and respected. Mr. Polk, it will be seen, was born the 2d of November, 1793, and is therefore in the 49th year. Mr. Dallas was born on the 10th of July, 1792, and is therefore in his 52d year. These are ripe ages, when the intellect of the individual has been matured by knowl edge and experience, and the passions and pre judices of earlier years so sobered and mellow ed by time as to assist the judgment. We co py from the Plebeian : Mr. Polk was born in Mecklenburg county, North Carolina, on the 2d of November, 1795, and consequently, is now in the forty-ninth year of his age. Hisanccstors emigrated, more than a century ago, fiom Ireland. The original name was Pollock ; but an elision of two of the middle letters has changed the name to a mono syllabic. They first established themselves in the Slate of Maryland, where many of the fa mily still sojourn. Previous to the Revolution ary War, the branch of the family from which sprung the distinguished man who is the sub ject of this biography, and who is destined to fill one of the most exalted stations in the world, removed to the neighborhood of Carlisle in the State of Pennsylvania, and thence to the west ern frontior of North Carolina. The part taken by the Polk family in the glorious struggle for American Independence is one of rare dis tinction. On the 20th of May, more than one year anterior to the Declaration of Indepen dence, the inhabitants of Mecklenburg county, the birth-place of Mr. Polk, assembled and pub licly absolved themselves from their allegiance to the British crown, and issued a declaration to that effect. The terms of manly eloquence in which this manifesto was written has caused it to be termed by some the first Declaration of Independence. Col. Thomas Polk the great uncle of James K., the present Democratic no minee for the Presidency, was one of the prime movers and a signer of the first Declaration of Independence. The evidence of the authenti city and genuineness of this interesting docu ment has been collected by the Legislature of North Carolina and deposited in the archives of the State. The people of Mecklenburg were, almost to a man 6taunch Whigs in the true re volution acceptation of the term, and have ever since been remarkable for their firm adherence to Democratic principles. As an evidence of the unwavering condition of the Democracy of the people of Mecklenburg county, it has often been observed of them, in a stylo of humour and pleasantry, that, at the last war, they took up arms six months before the Government and did not lay them down until twelve months after. In the mighty struggle for independence the relatives of Mr. Polk distinguished themselves. To bi allied to such a people, to be the descen dant of such an ancestry is a fit subject of hono rable pridu. The American people ever have manifested an affectionate regard for the he roes, sages and martyrs of the Revolution. They furnish proof that Republics are not un grateful. The father of Mr. Polk was a farmer of unas suming pretentions, but enterprising character. In early life he was thrown upon his own resour ces, and became the architect ofhis own fortune. He was a warm supporter if Jefferson, and through life a firm and consistent Republican. In the autumn of 1800 he removed to Tennes see, and settled on the fertile valley of the Duck river, then a wilderness, but now the most flour ishing and populous portion of the State. In this region Mr. Polk still resides; so that it may be said of him, that he has grown with its growth and strengthened with its strength. Of course in the infancy of the country the opportunities for instruction could not be very great, still he acquired the el ements of a good English education. The con stitution of Mr. Polk being feeble, his father de tei mined against the will of son, to make a com mercial man of him, and with this view placed him with a merchant. He remained, however, but a few weeks in a situation so adverse to his wishes, and incompatible with his taste. In Ju ly, 1812, he was placed under the care of the Rev. Dr. Henderson, and subsequently at the A cademy of Murfreesborough, Tennessee, then under the charge of Mr. Samuel P. Black, just ly celebrated as a classical teacher. In the au tumn of 1815, he entered the University of North Carolina, having in about two years and a half thoroughly prepared himself to com meace his collegiate course. Mr. Polk's career at the University was dis tinguished. At each semi-annual examination be bore away the first honor and finally gradu ated in 1818 with the highest distinction of his class, and the reputation of being the fust scho lar in both the mathematics and the classics. Keturnin g to Tennessee, in the beginning of the year 1819, he commenced the study of the law in the office of Senator Grundy ; and in the latter part of the year 1820 was admitted to the bar. He commenced his profession, and in less than a year he became the leading practitioner, He pursued his professionw:th a constantly in creasing reputation and success, until the year 1823, when he entered upon the stormy career of politics in being chosen to represent his coun ty in the State Legislature. He was chosen to that body for two auceessive years, where his ability and debate, and talent for business, at once gavo him reputation. The early personal and political friend of General Jackson he was one of those who gave his vote to call that dis tinguished man to the Senate of the United State. In August 1925, being then in his thirtieth year, Mr. Polk was chosen to represent his dis trict in Congress, and in December following, took his seat in that body, where he remained until the year 1833. He brought with him in to the national council certain fundamental principles, to which he uniformly adhered though all the mutations of party. In December 1832, he was transferred to the Committe of Ways and Means, the most impor tant committee of the House. There again he distinguished himself, and was placed atthehead of the committee. His coolness, promptitude, and abundant intellectual resources were never at fault ; and through the whole of the stormy period of Jackson's administration caused by the violent opposition of the United States Bank, Mr. Polk enforced with great power and ability the propriety of the measures of the administra tion. In December, 1935, Mr. Polk was chosen Speaker of the House, and elected again in 1837. During the whole term of the Speakership, in all the emergencies in which he was called up on to act, he 6ternly adhered to his convictions of duty, and few men have ever pursued a firmer or more consistent course than Mr. Polk Notwithstanding the violence with which he was assailed by the opposition in the House Congress passed, at the close of the session of 1S37, tin unanimous vote of thanks to him as the presiding officer, from whom it separated with the kindest feelings ; and no man enjoyed its confidence and friendship in a higher degree. His calmness and good temper frequently allay ed the violence of opposition a power for which his coolness and sagacity eminently qualified him. In 1839, Mr. Polk was elected Governor of the State of Tennessee, which office ho held until 1841. Thin we see that our candidate tor the Presidency has filled various honorable stations in the councils of the nation, and the office of the gift of the people of Ir.s State. And he is destined shortly to be elevated to the high est of all earthly stations. Mr. Polk's private character is as pure as his public life has been exalted, and the country does not furnish a man of more pure and steadfast devotion to the great and fundamental principles of our Republican Government than James K. Polk, the personal and political friend of Andrew Jackson and Mar tin Van Burcn. PROCEKDIWJS OF tub niLTiMone COXTISt'ED. CONVENTION Mat 30, 1 o'clock. Mr. Butler now announced that he had just received from Washington, three letters from the lion. Silas Wright, one of which he read to the convention, which was in substance as follows . "Being informed that the convention yester day has done me the unmerited honor of placing my name in nomination for the office of Vice President, 1 return to the members of the con vention my heartfelt thanks for their preference for me. There are, however, circumstance of a private nature, which are slightly alluded to in my letter to you, which compel me tnjdecline the nomination." 1 his announcement, was received with evi dent regret, on all sides A motion was, how ever, made and carried, to proceed again to bal lot for another nominee, which resulted as fol lows : Fairfield, of Maine, received 87 votes Gen. Cass 39 Col. Johnson 16 Woodbnry S6 Stewart 23 Dallas 13 and Gov. Maxcy 5 no choice. Mr. Walker, of Miss., then rose incompliance with the call of the Pennsylvania delegation, and stated that Mr. Dallas was the first man who had written in favor of Texas and its annexation to the Union, before any excitement had been raised on the subject, and therefore wholly disconnect ed from any reference to political station. Another ballot was then unanimously called for, which resulted as follows : For George M. Dallas, of Penn., - 219 " Gov. Fairfield, of Maine, - - - 30 " Levi Woodbury, of N. II., - 6 George M Dallas was then unanimously de clared the nominee. The President then returned his thanks to the convention for the honor which had been confer red on him, in a neat and approprite speech. On motion the convention adjourned sine die The Methodist General Conference Bishop Andrew Dcfosed. Our readers are a ware, from the publication of the debates in the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, that a very exciting question, and one which threatened the peace and harmony of that Church, has been before that body for a week past The question was in relation to Bishop Andrew's involvement on the holding of slaves, and his presumed unfitness for the Episcopal of fice in consequence. The question has been met in various forms, and the Episcopacy unanimous ly recommended its further postponement until the next General Conference On Saturday morning Bishop Iledding withdrew from that re commendation, the other Bishops confirming their former sentiments. The Conference, how ever, by a vote of 110 to 68, passed the resolu tion virtually deposing Bishop Andrew from of fice, and the question so far is decided. The Southern delegates have withdrawn, and propose entering a strong protest against the decision, and are holding a eonsultation upon their present position and future course Philm.

Editor: It being in accordance with the usage of the Democratic party, for the people, previous to the formation of the County Ticket, to bring before the public the names of such in dividuals as they may deem moat worthy to dis charge the duties belonging to the offices within their gift, we would recommend to the consider ation of the Democratic Electors of Northumber land county, Maj. WILLIAM L. DEVVART as a candidate for the Legislature. Should the people see proper to elect Maj. Dewart as their Representative, we feel confident that they will find in him a public servant of distinguished a bilities, an intelligent, firm, and unwavering De mocrat of the Jenersonian school, and, conae- scquently, the laboring man's friend. Mant Democrats. Dreadect. Accident at Williamrburo. The New York papers of Saturday record a dreadful accident at Williamsburg on Friday evening. Six children were killed and one bad ly hurt by the caving of a bank of earth. It np pears that they wsre playing beneath the bank, when it gave way and buried them under many tons of earth. Vigorous men, with spades, were instantly at work, and succeeded in rescuing a live the adopted daughter of Mr. Clcvenger, fer ry master, named Ida Wiggins, who is now able to speak, although horribly bruised and deprived of an eye. The other six were dead before the men at work reached them. One is the daugh terofMr. Paul, druggist, aged 9 years; three are children of Mr Lewis Jones, carpenter, of Grand street, Harriet and Abigail, aged about 9 and 6 years, and Mary Jones, aged about 18 mo Martha, daughter of Geo. Darlington, aged 4 or 5 the sixth is Delia Spencc, 14 years old, daughter of a laboring man. BALTIMORE 1UARKKT. Officeofthe Baltimore Americas', June 3. GRAIN.

OiKtRTi 1 believe it tho doty of every one to do whatever in their power lies, for the Vnc fit of their fellow man, and having had posiiivs proof in my own family, of tbe wonderful properties of your Depnrative Syrup of Sarsaparilla, I m ost eonscientiously recommend it to Ihe sfflirted. We had the misfortune to lose two of our children, by the breaking out of ulcerous sores that eovered the face, head and neck, although we had some ef the most scientific physicians to atiend them snd had tried nil the known temedies, including Swaims Panacra, without avail. Another of my chiklren was attacked Tn ihe same mannsr, her face and nerk was completely covered; the discharge was so offensive, and the disease at such a height, that we despaired of her life. Seeing the wondt'lfrll elTectS of your Dcpurative Syrup .f S itsaparilla, we were induced to make trial nf it, as tho lal rrsort j it scled like s charm; the ulcera commenced healing immediately, a few bottle entirely restored her to her health, which she lias enjoyed unintertuptedly ever since. As a purifier of the blond, I verily be lieve it has not its canal. JOHN MOVER, Tailor, Walnut street, near Fourth, Reading. Dotiglassulle, April 19th, 1813. Mat.
