The largest number of people ever as soilzied in tnis ciiy was rtsent last eve niny in the largo square, at the south end uf Lucas market, to ratify the nomina ions made Ly the Aational Republican Cunveniion, held in Chi. ao last week. The Hon. Frank 1 Blaiii was the BOraKer ol me occasion, ne said ol tne de'ont of Mr. Bate: It would re useless for me to attempt to conceal lb- fa t that in failing to se cure the nomination of the gentleman who was the flrit choice of the Republicans of Missouri, we have failed to accomplish the great end ol our mission to that Con vention. There is not one man among you but knows that not only wore tbe personal preferences of the llepuhlicans of Missouri disappointed, but that wtwerc hUo dipappoinfou in a nomination which would have b en the moat advantageous not only to the party io which tha groat ftiatesinan of Missouri belongs, but to the SiHte of Missouri heraelf. Ihe Republicans of Missourihnd a duty to t erf.it m however. It was to follow the Kepub'ican baniior. He spoko in very high terms o( Mr. Lincoln, saying of the Kepnbliean purty: They intend to typify, in bis nomina tion,' that they take for President a man horn in a nlve S ate, a sou of the soil of Kcntii'ky, but who baa taken up his abode in a free State they intend to ty pify t'mt they will atrotvh out their lunula to ihoRH in the humblest walks of lifo and raiBe them up, if found worthy of ud vanceiucnt. It is needless for me to speak Curl her of I lie character of this m;ui. It is needless for uie, whena convention of H is pany now tbe dnmiucnt parly in tho country, coming together, not merely to luliict a candidal, imt to appoint a President of ihe Unilcd btites Ap plaune have chosen bim. It is need I. bs for me, I say, to dwell upon hin (it n-B8, or to urue you to vote for him to I fill the hightat oiHce iu tho gift of the poo pie. the following is Me psstabenf Mr.Bi.AiH s Kpne. li. It is churtutciistio, lull of mat' icr, pith and moment In holding the urdi ratiDoation inootiitR in TaTor ot lie nomination ol tho liopubli can parly in a slave State we take tho lend of a host of freemen throughout the Union. We have infinitely uioiq at sake in thin contest than tho people ol uoy oth er Stat. This you will all admit. We, being In Missouri, have a mission be lore us, not only to prevent tho extension of slavery in the territories of the United State , but we have to enfranchise Mis souri. fApplaute, and cries of "we'll do it too." People may deny our rii;bt toin- terfuie with the dormatio institutions of our neighboring Siales, but as citizens of tl.e Siato of Missouri, nono can deny our right to consider amonj ourselves that which iB best to ourown prosperity. Pro longed applause 1 1 desire briefly to cull your attention to ihe reHUlts of ilui institution ot slavory iu Missouri. The firat and moat palpable ie suit is that the slave owncia hate tho non-slaveholders, (ories of "that' so," ami are every day attempting to ui.sfran uhise tbom. Look at your own great city of St. Louis; what is the number of Representatives you Betid to the State Li'gihlaiure? The populition of the city mil county of ft Louis entitles her to tw. niv-loiir representatives, wl.ilo the mini' or, under the ciiulilution of Mis couri, is but twelve; why is this? why is it I lia t it lakes two white men iu this nuiiiy to viiuhI one white man in an oili er louniy? they who framed that Slate nonsiituiion did it to suit iho bIiivo oli guruhy, and nut with a view of giving to ihe duiiso uiiibsus of freemen a voice in the governmet of nlFairs. In other slave fiiatea, whoro thoblave oligarchy isttrong cr than wo have permitted it to become liuru, it is even worse. In tho ciiy of Baltimore, a city tout cuutuins one half or the enure white population ot Mary laud, they aro allowed but one Senator and leu Iteprc.ieniativeH, icslead of seven ty live, to which they are entitled. I requires seven or eight while cen in tho city of U;ilumore to equal ouo wile nvin outside of it. In Virginia it lakes 40, 00(1 in one place tosquul tun in the Leg. imaiurH. it la always so wherever vou U 1 I I! l . I . . .

The fieenieii of our Stale must look well to their rights, lfthb existence of 100,000 slaves is sullh iont to derive 100.000 free people of thcirconslituiioual rights, what may 1 ask, will be the next, amp in mo great uratnar May we not ask, wuh a great degree of ouiilor, whith er are wo uiiIiiiir.' Mar we not reason ably etpi ct that the example of Mexico lie ll . win do luiiowod, and that tha enslaving of whitv men will bo rcsorlod to? There U another point which I desire Io mako. It is this; That the existence of ilia institution of slavery in Missouri tends to lesson tlm value of your landed property, io a vory gnat extent. I bo The German Press oa tbe Republican Nomination We continue our extracts: I From tb Cincinnati DallJ Abeud-Zcllung. When the intelligence of the nomina tion of Abraham Lincoln arrived yester dy, the disappointment felt was general. Cha.se or r remont! was tbe current v.'aicn Bepnbllcan Ratification Meeting at Co lumbns. Speech of Governor Cliase, There was a. Republican Ratification Meeting at Columbus Tuesday evening, which was addressed by Gov. D.nnison and Ex-Oov. Cba'se. Tho Speech of Gov. word of a majority of our people, and! they bad allowed themselves to hepe, well-knowing that Chase wou'd not hve a majority", that Fremont, the man of the whole Republican portion ot tbe people, would also in the end be the choice of tbe Convention. But calm leflection followed npon tbe first disappointment, and w declare, that for ourselves, ibo nomination of Lincoln was more areeablo intelligence than tlint of Seward would liave boen. It is true, both are of the schoo1 of tho Old Whigs, but Lincoln stands clear in Lia cbaiacu-r, while Mr. Seward has employed various poliiioHl mnnccuvrcB, which, had we found it necessary 10 vote for him, would have allowed us to support him only under res ervations. Even Mr, 1 incoln's enemies bear tbe highest and most honorable testimony to hia character. It is true, he is no great and renowued Statesman, but we want no celebrities we want a character a man of tho old sterling Btamp a man who will cleanse the Augoan stablo ot Presidon tint corruptions, and who knows how to exhibit a Biitf backbone to the Southern aristocracy; in this direction we hope the beat from I fncoln. r On tho slavery question he occupies the decided posili.m which the Republican party assumed in the Philadelphia plat form. The candidate elect of the Chica go Conveniiou is in this respect more de cided than their platform. Lincoln and Hamlin is now tho rally ing cry of the Republican party, aud we rejoice that we oie able to euppoit the ticket without further reservation. IProm tie Cincinnati Ropublikaner. The Nomluation at Chicago. The news ot the nomination of Abraham Lincoln fell like a stunning blow in the midst of us. lie was known, it is truo. through lis contest against Douglas, but the heartof Cincinnati bnlongs to i remont and to Chase. Those who preferred Fre mout sbove all, and they were a great majority, were in the second instance for our woll proved and intrepid champion of the Republican party, 8. P. Chase. Tcoe who preferred Chaau as their first choice, wore unwilling to accopt any otl er subs iluto for him than Fremont. What was more natural, than that, up to tho last moment, notwithstanding tho let ter written by bim, so falsely interpreted and abused as it bad been, tho hope yet remained that hia naruo would come be fore tho Convention Wo bnd, indeed, been accustomed to look upon Seward as a conspicuous can didato. Seward, the thoroughly aooora plished Statesman, the subtle thinker, the determined man of action but st the tame time, the advocate of a centralized government, the opponent of free demo ciatio sell'-dcvelopemcnt, tho man of cal- cu'ation, in whose view the mean ot car rying an election Are not particularly strict tho old Whig. Lincoln is at least free from all suspi cion of servility to slavory. If he is not a man of universal culture, like Fremont, if he has not entered ,tho list ia bohulf of the rights of adopted citizens with the samo energy as Cbao and .Seward, be has vet ui ver manifested anv adhesion to tbe Nativo-Amorican prejudice, and has al ready long since declared himself opposed to any change in tho naturalization laws. If Lincolu is not enshrined in tho hearts of tho people, likv Fremont, he has yet labored with the people all his life, ho is truly a sell made maul If we may not enter upon the contest under his leadership with the same onthu aiaiu is under that of Fruuiunt, whose name amuses a world of hopes nnd nrs givingsiu the mitel of him who lives for the futuro, ami believes iu the progro-a and elevation of mankind wo can still go into the ba'.tle lor Liinculn, ns tho soldiers of freedom, who from a sentiment of loy alty to tho causa, will do their duty. If wo ounnol go into tho struggle with the samo hope ns with Fremont or Cliase. to conquer now worlds tor freedom, we must yet so nioh the nuro close up the ranks, that the encroachments of tho enemy that would Invade us tho Slavo Power may bo repelled from our soil.

U. 6. Janiml, Journal Mr Fellow Citizens: Iu this mighty gathering, and in this all prevailing en thusiasm I see the issue of the Campaign. The manner in which you uud your fol low citizen throughout the country re spond to the nominations made at Chica go is sure prago of success, and I con- gratylute you upon tne ciieenng prjjuui rreloro us. The connection oi my own uatne in the Natioral Convention with the nominations for the Presidency renders it proper that I should say that I was placed in tint attitude by the action of the Re publicans of Ohio, a very large majority of whom in their Sate Convention pre- Rented my name to , '.bo Republicans ot the Union as thir chose for the Presi dency. I regard tho expression of tho Stat Convention as the law for the Stato delegation, and so reirard-ng it, bad ex pected of it the sime unity ol action thst characterize J the course of the New York delegation in the support of Mr. Sewaid, of the Illinois delegation in the support of Mr. Lincoln, and of tho Pennsylvania delegation in support of Mr. Cameion un der similar lnuruciions, uui wun mo final choice of (lie Chicago Contention I am entirely satisfied; with its declaration of principles I am satisfied. Every prin ciple in that platiorm 1 bave publicly avowed and advocated for many years; and its dcclarat:ons still meet with my cordial concurrence. It hs been said that the nomination of ain candidates might have endan- ect the success of :l e cause we all have so n uch at heart. Ood forbid that my nomination or that of any other man should imperil the the triumph of Repub lican principles! Thoie principles aro dearer to me than all merely personal con siderations, and 1 rcjoico that, although I was not nominated, my principles were; and that they have so true and bo faith ful a representative tn tho coming contest as Abraham Liaooln, of. Illinois. The doctrines of the Republiom party are about to receive a triumphant vin dication nt the lia.ids of the American people. They and thuso who have ad vocated them, liftvo Heretofore been por- sistcntly misrepresented; but let mo any that oven the slave holding States them selves, undor a wise and patriotic Repub lican administration, will sooa discover the error into which they have been led by these iniBreprescntations. For myself I cherish no hostility toward tho people of the Southern Stated. 1 would not deprive them of a single richt guarantuod to them by the Constitution nor doe ihe KepuMican parly propose to uo so. It simply contends for freedom in the Territories, against the Southern demand io introduco slavery (here. It believes that freedom and free labor will best de vclopo their, resources', and contribute moat to the wclfaro uud happiness of tboso who may emigrato thither from tho ilsve Stato as well as from the free. In the former there it ft comparatively small class of slaveholders, whilu the irreat ma jority of whU 'itihabitants are non-sla veholders and poor. We coutond that the Territories should be openoJ to tbe poor emigrant, whethor from the North or the South, and that thus ahall be pcr potuated a true popular sovereignty, in which the majority shall govern, rather t1 an a class contiol. In the Southern States there nio thousands, kept down by poverty aud mcul distinctions, who long for schools ond churches, and fur unrestricted, opporluuitios of self-oulture ana cievniicn in me sooiai caie. we re publicans proposo,by keeping Ibo Territo ries in reserve, fur them, to furnish them these advantages; and it is a very foitu- nate and significant cirouniBtunco that this leading ldeS cf tho Republican creed is ao woll represented by our candidate. I hi lite ot Mr. Lincoln lurmshed an illustration of the operation of that idea. Hid irracd parents were nativos of Virgin. in, bis parents of Kontucky, and thoy - ore poor. Youocr Lincoln left the unfriendly atmosphere of slavery in hia native Stale and removed to Indiana, where he could breathe free air nnd carve out for hiuisilf a more favoiahlo destiny. Had ho never niadti that removal, it is scarcely proba ble that, bamporod by the difficulties that surrounded bun, he would have risen to tho high position ho now occupies before the people of tho nation. But he came over on to freo soil, where gonerou.i sym pathies awaited the laborer, and helped him on iu his upward career. Rising by his own noble ctforts, be ia to day the choson Presidential eaudidalo of tho Re publican party, aud on tho 4th o Marol next he will bo tho duty chosen l'resi dent of tho United Suites. Of tho nomineo f. r Vioo President, I an truly say that ho is eminently worthy of the confidence ropoBed in him. I have served with bim long in pullij life, and have known him well. He has been a lile-Iong Dcmociat-rnotof the modern tvpe, but of the achool of Jefferson and Franklin. Ilia Demooraoy is not of that kind which consists in subserviency to '.ho dictates of a alavoholding class, und whose highest manifestation is in the alacrity with which its duvotoos will chase a runaway uiggar; but that Democracy upon which our institutions are basscd; which towering sublimely above the sel fish interest of classes and factions, is en throned upon the solid foundations of true popular sovereignty tho expressed will ol an intelligent and patriotic people. I can pronounco upon him no higher eulo gium than to say that be is worthy of as sociation upon the samo ticket with Abia ham Lincoln. ' Gov. Clmss conoluded bis speech, of which the foregoing is an impelled and hasty skotch, by a stirring appeal to Re publicans to do their whole duty in the coming campaign. A Letter from SI r. Seward. Nxw Yobk, May 24. The following letter haa been addressed by Mr. Sxwabd 10 the gentlemen of the Central Republi can Committee, who invited m to attend a meeting for the ratification of the pro ceedings of tho National Convention:- Cin cinnati Commercial. Ai'Buhh, May 21, 1860. Gentlemen: I will not affect to consult the sensibility with which 1 have received tholctters in which you aud so many other respected friends have tendered to me ex pressions of renewed and endearing con fidence. These letters will remain with me as assurances in future, that although 1 was not unwilling to await even for another age the vindication of my politi cal principles, yet that they did neverihe less receive the generous support of many good, wise aud patriotic men of say own lime. Such assurances, however made under the ciroumstaoces now existing, derive their priceless value largely from the faol that they steal upon me through the chan nels of private correependence, and al though unknown to the world, you will at once perceive thai such expiessions would become painful to me, and justly offensive to tho country, if I should be allowed to partake io any public or conventional form ot manifestation. For this reason, if it were respect! ul and consistent for yourowc public purposes, I would have delayed my reply to you until 1 could bave had an op portunity of making it verbally next week on my wy to Washington, after complet ing the arrangements lor the repairs upon my dwelling, rendered necessary by a re cent fire. The same reason determines me also to c'ecline your kind invition to attend the meeting in which you propose some de nionstraiioiib of respect to myself. While so justly considering tue nominations which bave just I ecu made by the Nation al Convention at Chicago, at the same time it is your right to have a frank and candid expression of my own opinions and senti ments on that important subject. My mends, knowing very well that while they have always generously made my pro motion to public trusts their own exolusive care, mine bas only been to execute them faithfully, so as to be able, at the close of tbtii 8s1gncd forms, to resiga them into ihe bands of the people without forfeiture of to public confidence The presentation of my name to the Chi cago Convontion was thus thon their act, not mine; the disappointment thorofort thciia, not mine. It may have found them unprepared On the other hand, I bave no seutiment either of disappointment or dis content; for who in any possible case could, without presumption, claim that a great national party ought to choose him for its candidate for the first office ir. the gift of the American people I find in the resolutions or tho Convention a plat form as satifaotory to me as if it bad Leon framed with my own hands, and in the candidates adopted by it, eminont and able licpuldicans with whom I have cordially co-opeiated in maintaining the priuciplos embodied in thai creed. I choei fully give tbein a sincere and earnest support. I truet, moreover, that tuoso with whom I have lubored so long that common service in a noble onuse has created betweon there and myself.relutions of personal friendship, unsurpassed in the exporienoe of political men, will indulge me iu a conudent belief that no seise of disappoitment will be allowed bv them to hinder or delay, or in any way euibanass (he progress of that cause to the consum matiou which is demand by a patriotic re gaid to tha rafotyand welfaie of the conn try, and the best interests of mankind.

Sir,' at your con venience we shall be glad to receive trom you such a response as may be your plea sure to give us. Mr. Lincoln repaed ns follows: "Mr. Chairman of tbe Committee, I fender you. and through you, to the Re publicai National Convention, and all the people represented in it, my profoundest t'lanks for the high honor done me, which you formally announce. Deeply and even painfully sensible of the great responsi bility which is insopirable from that honor a responsibility which I could almost wish bad fsllou upon some one of the far mote eminent men and experienced states men whose distinguished names were be fore the Convention I shall, by your leave, consider more fully the resolutions of the Convention, denominated the Plat form, and, without unreasonable delay, respond to you, Mr. Chairman, in writ ing, not doubting that the Platform will be found satisfactory, and the nomination gratefully accepted. And now I will no longer defer the pleasure of taking you and each of you by the hand." A general shaking of bands wuh the next Presdient then followed, nnd tbe Committee retired.

Lincoln on the Rights of Foreign Born Citiaens aud on Fusion The Illinois S aats-Anacigcr publishes it letter of Abraham Lincoln, written just a year since, on the Naturalisation qucs tioo and the Massachusetts ainendmont, as well aa on the propriety of a fusion of the Republican with other parties. The following is the leuer: pfRiNOPisi.D, 17 Muy, 1859. Dr. Theothro Cunisius: Dear Sir: I Imve rdoeived your let ter, in which you ask, for yourself and olhor Oormnu Citizens, whether I am for or against the Constitutional provision, in relation to naturalised oitizons, which has lately boon adopted by Massachusetts; and whoiber I am for or against a fusion of the Republican and other opposition elements, lbr the election campaign of lSbi). Massachusetts is a sovereign anil inde pendent State, and I have no title to ad vi.so or admonish her as to her oourso, what she shall do. But wl or. any ono from that which she has done, seeks to draw a conclusion its to what I shall do, I may without boing charged with pre sumption, speak my mind. I Bay then, that, so far as I understind tho Massa chusetts amendment, I am against tho adoption of the parao, as well in Illinois as in all other places where I have the right to oppose it. Since I interpret the spirit of our institutions us tending to the elevation of man, I am opposed to every thing which leads to his degradation. Since, as is prolty well known, I oom misserate the opprosied condition of (ho negroes, I should be guilty of a remarka ble inconsistency, where I to favor any measure, whose tendency is to abridge the existing rights ot xehiti men, whether born in another country, or speaking an other langmigo than my own. As regards the question of a fusion of parties, 1 am Tor it, it it can be efteoted upon a Republican basis; upon no other terms am I in favor of it. A fusion upon any other terms would be as unwise as it would bo unprincipled. Its effoot would bo to lose thereby the wholo North, while the common enemy would certainly car ry the entire Soutb. Tin question in re lation to men is a different one. Theie are good and patriotio men, and able statesmen in the South, whom I would oheerfully support, if they stood upon Republican ground, but I am opposed to lowering the Republican etandaid by so much as a hair's breath. I have written this in baste, but I be lieve that it substantially answers your questions. Respectfully rours, , . ABRAHAM LINCOLN. lafJt-XJkt "3-DrBl.
