shernmes, embracing the refusal to ad

the Territories-the interdiction of the

EIverett, in a political letter, entitlec,

A large and enthusiastic meeting of
I the Democracy of Norfolk and Ports
mouth was held last night in the Opera
House. Joseph T. Allyn, President of
the Democratic Association, took the
chair, and after a few remarks, intro
duced Dr. Arthur Smith, delegate to the
Charleston Convention from the First
District of Virginia. Dr. S. proceeded
to give an account of his course in that
Convention. After a short address he
introduced O. Jennings Wise, Esq.,
who said that he had not come prepared
to deliver a speech before such a large
anudience, and only consented to speak
at all because his father, Gov. Wise,
