A uniting of the friend of Fremont and Day ton wa held at the Giurt House on Monday eren- iug last. The following gentlemen -were selected as officers. John W ilhams q., as President, Johu E.

After the meeting whs fully prgauized, amotion was made, that the President state the object of the meeting; which he did in his usual off hand style. A committee of five'werc appointed to draft resolutions express ire of the sense of the meeting ; and during the, absence of the committee, Mr. R. C. Lewis was called upon to address the meeting, who made a very brief speech, frequently interspersed with stale and worn out stories, and why, be left the democratic nartv. and that he was still Round on the goose question. A Mr. Barker of Carroll township, and former ly from the state of Maine was next called on, who spoke at some length, confining himself prin cipally to yantee stories, and women's- rights which kept the audience from sleeping or leaving the meeting. A man named Trice lately imported from one of the Guss Houses in England, was called upon, who, informed the audience that it was necessary for him to read his speech ,as he was endowed with i an active brain, words flowing from him so rap i idly as not easily to be comprehended, leaving i tha audience to infer that he was really more i than au ordinary man, not wishing to be taken for a sap-head, which was the general opinion. ! The meeting was quite respectable, owing to the fact that it was chieily composed of democrats who went thereto get a glimpse of &m aud Sam bo. Maj. Jos. Bernhard. As noticed last week our friend llaj. B :rnhard has declined to le a candidate for re-election to our State Legislature. We need uot to say Low this determination on hi part is rcgietted bj the people of the district.- lie was n member useful to his constituents, and the legislature certainly contained tie honester man.

The name of an American out of tbis country will be a passport of honor, and within it will be a guarantee of constitutional rights, so far as regards tho general government, which no man will touch with impunity. And he will find the colleague we shall give hiai, (Mr. Breckinridge) a faithful co-adjutor in the same great cause.

Gentlemen : I have received vour letter of the 13th inst., giving nie official informa tion of my nomination by the Democratic Na tional Convention, for the office of Vice Pres ident of the United States. I 'feel profoundly grateful to the Democracy for this distinction, so far above my merits and expectations, and accept the the nomination, with the pledge that if it should result in imposing on me auy public duties, I shall exert whatever pow er I possess todiichargc then with fidelity. The Convection wisely selected for the first place, in the Government, an eminent states man, whose character and public services fur uish a guarantee that his administration will command confidence at home and respect abroad. The platform adopted by the Convention has my cordial approval, 1 regard it s the only basis on which the Union can be preser ved in in its original spirit Adopted as it was by the unanimous votes of the delegates from all the States, it shows that amidst the distractions of the times there remains one united organization , whose common principles extend over every foot of Territory covered KvrtLciedmljions &GuNYit$ v.v, wtacm w tue coyuniry a national orga nization, we may justly congratulate the States upon the unanimity which marked the pro ceedings of the Democratic Convention-and the patriot may point to the fact as a pledge of constitutional Union, that the delegates from Maiue and Texas from South Carolina and California, were as thoroughly united up on every question of principle", as those from ihe neighboring Southern States of Tennessee and Kentucky, or those from the neighboring Northern States of Wisconsin and M;,.!,;.-, And all of j - ILis community of scuOmeut, this feelin it ry to the , brotherhood, gives Lope of perpetual Union! cal and en- j It has been the happy fortune of tho Demo- cratie nartv. bv adhering to aut: I mr m w -------- . tain the : high position of .om- country before the world to . preserve the equality of every part With sincere acTrnrwledgements for- the lnendly personal sentiments contained ia your letter. . ,. -..'

' If 11 the English papers would assume the position of Mr. Simms, we apprehend all dif ficulties would be easily settled. We hope the gent eman represents the sentiments of a large majority of the people of the United Kingdom. The latest reports from America are much more favorable, and if mischievous diplomacy be kept down in the meantime, all feartof war may be cast aside as utterly groundless Is is much to be regretted that the people of the mother country and those of the young Republic, should, to this day, know so little of each other. Designing politicians have ev er yielded immense sway m certain phases of society. While the really influential men stand in the back ground, unwilling to take part in political campaigns, the blustering demagogue, rush into the arena; and the mas ses allow themselves to be made merchandize of for the aggrandizement of a few trading patriots On this side the Atlantic we have heard the sentiments of Pierce, the bravadoes of AY alker, and the idle flourish of the most incendiary and least influential portion of the I ress. Of the good sense, the sound judg ment, and peaceful opinions of the millions who represent the moderate party in the Uni .ted States, little has vet found its way to this countty. The ' Republic of Central Amer ica," about which such a war of words has al ready been made, would hardly bo worth to either party, the value of one month's ex change of products between Great Britain and the United States- Its total area is larger by about twenty millions acres than that of the United Kingdom, and the population much under the numerical strength of London .jonatnau nas already amnio territorv and we IK'IlVP .lOfin ill tlo-no of ast fullv as inoeli domain as he is able to manage at present. The question of Mr. Crampton and his al leged dismissal seems thj grand point of in terest, and remarkable interest has been at tached to it. Granting, however, that the" representative f Britain did not, -as has been stated, violate-the Neutrality Laws of Ameri ca, it is plain that his day of usefulness is gone, and the sooner the charge ho held bo. placed in other hands the better, for all inter ests here as well .as for those of our customers of the New World. We observe that the New Y'ork papers Anticipate the prompt dis missal of Mr. Dallas and the suspension of diplomatic relations at London. That, how ever, is a course not likely to bo pursued by England's Prime 31inisier. While we stand up for our own rights, and demand the full recognition cf the Clayton-Bulwer Treaty, it must be admitted that, in the lirst instance. the course pursued by Mr Crampton was not m accordance witu tue laws ot tne Cni'.ei States. Somehow there seems to be a great want of mutual understanding between the people of the Regal and those of the Republican Gov ernment. Ao two countries, either in ancient or modem times, were so closely linked as i and eel f-respecr, wa not present at the draw Great Britain and the United States. If the ing-room " policy of each widely differ as to form of Go vernment, the interests of both are directly identical. Using the same language, and taught by the same literature, the destinies of the two natiojjs are evidently tho.se of great leacners, fjoing tortn siae Dy siae, m tue march of civilization all over the world This truth is not less felt by the gTeat majority of the men who sit under the domain of the llo public than it is by the peaceable and indus trious class in this country. It is really one of the most unaccountable features of present history to find, that even the idea of war should be entertained between the relative Govern ments of Eugland and America. Factious spirits there are in the States, who would glo ry in raising mischief, and setting brother a gainst brother ; but, on the whole, the patri otic and the powerful men of America enter tain the mo?.t friendly feeling towards thj country. Mr. Hawthorne's .sentiments, as spoken by that gentleman in London some weeks ago, are exceedingly friendly. 41 Am erica," he said, " owed a great debt to the in tellect of. England, and he, as a native of that country, wouid never forget it. He believed there was never yet a kind word spoken or a kind action performed, 03' an Englishman, to wards an American, that the American was not ready to respond, by an action or word at " l"'"d. if not more so. He beHeved there was never j-et a momenC when-'ji . was not ready to extend her hand to meet the hand of England out-stretched in earnestness and good faith. It would be strange indeed if .it were not so, for Providence had connect ed the two countries by indissoluble tics. Even the rich old soil of England the birth place of his. fathers might be said to be still inheiitnd by the Americans, and their own expanding territory belonged to England in that sense.. If America made additions to her territory on her Indian frontiers, and changed barren land to gold, that gold came by ship loads to these shores ; aud if he could put any faith in the kind feeling which he everywhere j i.i . . . .' . ueara jiugiisniiien express towards America American them, for he cart of aa En- e true lonsnie was indeed as- bctwecn the broken." " ' ' spirit shown reciprocated by tea rvingdom. at soldiers, more judg raitened eti- season. the now- erful action of unity of aim and of interest would rapidly cement the bonds of relation ship, and give full play to all the latent re-' souices of the two greatest nations on the earth. The commercial intercourse between the United Kingdoms and her "Western ally has increased to an extent far exceeding that of : any other country During the eight months ending May last the total amount of exports of Indian corn from the United States was 4,538,331 bushels, and of that quantity Great Britain took 4.3S3.700 bushels. The export of wheat was 0,130,910 bushels, of which this country took 3,950,679 bushels and of the 1,424,726 barrels of flour shipped from the American ports. Great Britain took 792,027 barrels.' We import nearly 30,000, OOOlbs. 'of tobacco annually from Virginia, and the value of cotton, at the present rate of eonsnmptkrui would run close up to jCIS -000.000. . Two-thirds of all the cotton raised in the fotfr million acres of North American plantations are sent to England. America well knows the e timulus which the cnterprite of Laucaauiw; Lanark, and the North-East Counties of Ulster has given to her cottrn culture. . Seventy years ago, the total value of all the cotton raised in the States only am ounted to 50,000 dollars. Last year, the value of the same crop was nearly 150,000, 000 dollars. Thirty yerrs ago Brother Jon athan owned one million tons shipping, - at present his marine power is equal to four million tens; and in that great department of enterprize in the scientific construction of merchant vessels- the young Republic has taught some very valuable lessons to his Re gal relative. As a market for British produce and manufactures the United States takes the first rank. Last year they consumed at the rate of nearly 20s per head of the population, or about 24,000,000 of our goods. During the palmiest days of our commercial exchan ges with Russia the annual extent of British products taken by the people of that country never exceeded 6d a head of the entire popu lation. - We have stated, .that the men of the Uni ted States acd those of the United Kingdom have yet much to learn of each other. On this side the Atlantie we must not accept the policy of Pierce, or the Rob Royism of Walk er,-as the true indication of feelinjr even of the minority towards this country. Erring politicians, red lapists,- ancl sticklers for Cabi- inet routine hrve done much to raise up the barricaJes of national prejudice and national jealousy between the people of the British Isles and those of the Western World. It is full time that all such obstacles should be cast away, and that the nations which, as we have seen, are so mutually bound together by com mercial intercourse, should only strive in the peaceful campaigns of progressive industry. Tux Amkktcan Minister is Loxnos. A correspondent of the Manchester (Eng.) Guar ilitin thus describes Mr. Dallas, the Ameri can Minister, as - he appeared at' the Queen's Drawing Room, June JO : ' Mr. Dallas moved in the gay crowd l-et'n distingue, as was said of Lord Castlernzh, at the Congress of Vienna, by the simplicity of his attire.

Locisvillk, July 3. The Whig State Convcntiou met to-dsy; seventeen couutits were represented. The Convention adopted the Lexington Whiff platform, adding a reso lution that Congress phould pass, stringent laws to prohibit the emigration of foreign pau pers and felons and that the time for natural izing foreigners be lengthened. The Con vention decided that it would be impolitic to make nominations, and recommend to the Whigs of the Union to hold no National Con vention, or make no nomination, but for ev ery Whig to vote for the candidate- whose principles conform the nearest to theirs.

Senator Brooks' Trial- His'Spseeh, &c Washington City, July Col Brooks' assault and battery on Mr. Sumner came up before the Judge of the Criminal Court this morning. The trial was largely attended ; Senator Butler and other members. of Congress were present. The District Attorney read a corresponder" between him and Mr. Sumner, to snow that he had uscn aw aiuotljoaU unsuecefsfnlly to obtain the presence of Mr. Sumner, who had expressed himself that he had no desire to take part in the proceedings, and left the city.

His property might be squandered, his life endangered, but be would be true to her. who bore him. He then said that he bowed to the majesty of the law and would so receive his sentence. Judge Crawford said, that as the matter might perhaps at that time be the subject of investigation at another place, meaning the House of Bepresentatives, he would forbear to comment on the testimony, and would pro nounce the judgment of the Court, that Mr. Brook? pay a fine of $300.
