In aceoidance with our duty as a Democrat ic editor, we raise to our mast-head, to-day, I tie names of the National Democratic nominees for President and Vice President, STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS,of Illinois, and HERSCHEL V. JOHNSON, ot Georgia. We do this be cause they are the regular nominees ol the party, having been placed in nomination by the action of two-thirds of all the representatives properly accredited to the National Convention. In laising the banner of DOUGLAS, we must t.e permitted to disclaim any intention to assume an attitude ol hostility to the National Adminis tration. We have always sustained MR. BUCH ANAN, and will continue to do so, as long as we have no reason to believe that his Administra tiation will interfere against regular Democrat ic nominations. The contest is not, at present, between Douglas and Buchanan— not between l.ecoinptoi. and Anti-Lecompton. These are by-gone and settled issues. l'he battie is be- • ween sectionalism, (as represented on the one j hand hy the fanatical "Republicans," and on j the other by the equally fanatical Disunionists of the South,) and Nationality as emblazoned on the banners ol the Union Democracy. VVe ire for the Union, "now and forever, one and | inseparable." We are for giving the Southern people their Constitutional rights—nothing „,ore —nothing less. Non-intervention by Congress with slave' y in the territories, as de clared in the Nicholson Letter ot (Jen ( ass, as set forth in the Democratic platlorm <t IS:V2, as embodied in the Nebraska Hill in iSo-t and . ngratted upon the Cincinnati Platform in 1556, is the great principle for which S. A. Douglas is now doing battle, and "-ink, or swim, live or die, survive 01 perish," we are bound to -laud by him in the contest. That principle was the shibboleth ot our iaitli in '56 ; it was our solemn pledge to the people , it was our bond with the gallant men who elected James Buchanan : and as men and Democrats we .\mnot, dare not,blot it out. It is unnecessary for us to speak ot the histo ry of Judge DOUGLAS. Every school-boy knows it. His colleague on the ticket, IION. tl V. JOHNSON, has been Governor of Georgia and Judge of the Supreme Coutt ot that State, fie is an able man and a true and tried Demo crat. Huzza for Douglas and Johnson 11. K COI NTY TICKET.

Mr. G. is raid to do his work well. iC7*"W'e are favored with another original story from the pen of our gilted friend, "A Plow man," which wtl! appear at our earliest conve-1 nicnce. DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION. ( We lack the space to publish in lull 'he proceedings of the lite Democratic National Convention, during its session at Charleston ami Baltimore. Our readers are already apprised ol the result at Charleston, and as nothing was done at Baltimore until the report of the Com mittee on Credentials, was presented to the Convention, we, therefore, omit all the procee dings prior thereto. It will be remembered that in a number of the Southern States, elec tions were held pursuant to a resolution adop ted at Charleston, to fill vacancies existing in delegations fropi various States, said resolution having special reference to the withdrawal of certain delegates. The delegates chosen at those elections presented their credentials to tii e Convention, but were met at the threshold by the delegates who had withdrawn and formally severed their connexion with the Con vention. To settle the claims ot these differ ent sets of delegates, the Committee on creden tials continued in session until Friday morn ing last, when three different reports were made. Tim majority report, submitted by Judge Kp.lm , of Missouri, took ground in favor of the admission ot the new delegation from Louisiana, the new delegation from Alabama, the original delegations from .Mississippi, Texas and Delaware, anil in lavor of both sets, with proportioned votes to each, from Arkansas and Georgia, it also decided in favor of Mr. Chaffee, of Massachusetts, and Mr. Fallon, of Missouri. The minority report made by Mr. STEVENS, of Oregon, recommen ded the re-admission of all the seceding delega tes and the exclusion of all the new delega tions elected under the resolution adopted at Charleston, it also invited South Carolina and Florida to participate in the Convention, though those states had refused to send dele gates. Mr. GITTINGS, of Maryland, made a report agreeing with the majority report of Judge KRUM, with the exception that it favor ed the admission of the original delegates trom Alabama. Subsequently, Mr. Gittings with drew his report. The vote was then taken on the motion to substitute the minority report of Mr. Stevens tor the majority report, which re sulted in the rejectionof the former—yeas iOOJ, nays 150. The whole majority repoit was then adopted, except that section admitting both sets ot the Georgia delegates. The action ot the Convention in this regard, was the signal for a secession of portions of the delegates from Oregon, California, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia.— Many ot the with-drawing delegates protested that thev saw no reason for their course, but were governed by tbe action ot a majority of their delegation. Hut two of the eighteen delegates trom Missouri withdrew. The following remarks of Southern delegates, will serve to show the division ot sentiment at the South m regard to secession j Mr. Motlitt, of Virginia, stated the reason why he did not withdraw from the Convention. He was appointed by a District Convention, to which he owes allegiance. They elected him to come here and not go elsewhere. He was elected to the National Democratic Convention and no other. He was elected to represent his constituents in the Convention but not to with draw trout it ; to carry out the wishes of a peo ple who are national and not sectional; to piomotetfie interests of the Union, not lo risk its disseverance [Applause.] Mr. Glass, ot Virginia, said he had not agreed with bis colleagues in their secession, but desi red, nevertheless, to decline further action with the Convention, without joining any seceding body • Mr. Walker, of Tennessee, said he was a member of the Baltimore Convention which met twenty years ago. Since that time tie had voted tor every Democratic candidate tor pres ident and every Democratic nominee nv his baiiiwick. He should be the last to ieave the ship, and having voted thus, for twentv vears, lie announced to the C\ nvention that if he lived till the next Presidential election he should vote tor the nominee of this Convention. [Laud applause, j He was proud to find by his side many delegates from Tennessee actuated bv the same feelings. Many gallant hearts are here from the laud of Jackson, who will maintain their ground. He referred to the action of '.he State Convention of Tennessee, which, after laboring tor hours to adopt a nlatform to har monize alt parts of the country, bad pa.-sed a resolution narniug Gov. Johnson as their first choice for Psesident, and pledging the State to give a hearty support to the nominee ot the par ty, whether he comes from the North or South, provided lie can cordially endirse the Cincin nati platform. He had no fears that this Con vention will nominate a candidate who cannot endorse the Cincinnati platform. He procee ded to extol the Northern Democracy lor fidel ity to the Union and to the whole country, and declared that lie would not endeavor to crowd on them a weight to crush them. The Tennessee delegation had not yet formally withdrawn, and he hoped that belter counsels would prevail. Mr. Jones, o' Tennessee, followed, charging that while the South had originally pretended to bolt on tiie platform, they had no sooner got out than they offered to unite on the nomina tion, provided one man would not be m.tnina ted. So it was no tight for principle but a pro sci iptive tight against one individual. He boas led, in tfie course of bis remarks, that be had j been a Democrat from the time he drew milk i Iron: his mother's breast. [ Laughter.j H" shoul 1 never desert the Democratic partv. Mr. Moffit, ot Virginia, again took the ff >or and spoke earnestly against the secession. The delegates from Virginia were pledged to the support of the nominee of the Democratic par ly, ami a very large majority ot their constitu ents would stand by the National Democratic party whoever might desert it. The people of the South would never follow the Black Re publican precedent and sectionalize the Democ racy. He continued to argue forcibly in favor of remaining bv the National Demociatic or ganization until he was suddenly taken sick, wh-ni he was compelled to yield the lloor. Mr. Craig, ot Missouri, was anxious that the proposition of his colleague should be car ried, but, wi order that, even for one night, tire position of one delegate at toast .-.h oil Id not be misunderstood, lie desire J to say that, while he was ready to follow his colleague almost any where, he was not ready to follow any one out ot the Democratic Convention or the Democrat ic party. {Loud applause.] iWr. Clark, of Missouri —This remark may place rrie in a laLe position. I have said mv own is fixed, f shall never leave this body. jJ/jiid applause.] Mr. Steele, of North Carolina, made a strong speech against secession. Mr. Claiborne, of Missouri, made an eloquent speech in favor of Douglas, and advocated his claims as a National Democrat and gallant lea der. With him at the head ol the ticket he had no fear of the result. Tin? Seceders' Convention The Convention of the bolters from the Balti more Convention, and their disunion Yancey allies, met in the Maryland Institute, at Balti more, on Saturday last, and nominated John C. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, for President, and Joseph Lane, of Oregon, for \ ice President.— There were, in all, 105 votes cast, Alabama and Louisiana being represented in full, though these States had likewise a full representation in the regular Convention. The regular Con vention which nominated Douglas and -Fitzpat rick, was composed of 422 delegates, casting 211 voles, or just double the number of the Bol ter's Convention. The enemies ol the Democ racy are highly elated at this division in the Democratic ranks. We advise them, however, '•not to count their chickens ere they're hatch ed," for there's "many a slip twixt tiie cup and the lip." We do not believe that Mr. Breckinridge will permit the use of his honored name to disintegrate and destroy the Democrat ic party. It he will, we must contess that we were entirely mistaken in our estimate of ins pairiotism and fidelity to Democratic usages. I>l*l \io\ The apostle of the Southern disunionists, Mr. Yancey, was calleil out by the Seceders' Con vention, immediately alter the nomination ol Breckinridge and Lane. The following report of his remarks, we would respectluliy commend to the consideration of our readers, asking them to mark well their tenor and spirit : Deafening calls were made for Mr. Yancey, who took to the plattorrn and made a brilliant speech, congratulating the Convention on its representation ot the States Rights Democracy that was prepared to maintain the rights of the Constitution. He begged them to accept of these congratulations at the hands of man a who had some reputation as a factiomst and a disu nion ist : of a man who was ten years, i igo an ad vocate of disunion, becuuse tie. smvt/it constitu tional rights of the South invaded by the atl mission of California with squatter sovereign ty, and by the inter ference with the slave trade in the District of Columbia, lie had gone be fore the Slate of Jllubamn, and asked them to secede. He had been voted down by the State anil had not since advocated disunion. Those who said fie had, uttered a falsehood ! He was neither for the. Union, nor against it. He was prepared for a secession from the U nion whenever lie saw the Constitutional rights of the South invaded. 'GP"J. M. SHOEMAKER N.

Douglas and Fitzpatrick Nominated, BALTIMORE, June 23. —The theatre was a j gain well crowded this moniuig and the floor well filled, the delegations from Louisiana and Alabama having taken seats. After prayer by tile Rev. Mr. Cummings, Mr. Garret, ot Alabama, desired to have the names of the delegation from Alabama correc ted according to a list sent up. Mr. Caldwell, oLKentucky, stated that after withdrawing last evening, the Kentucky dele gation lieid a meeting an J re-assembled this i morning. The circumstances in which they : were placed were exceedingly embarrassing, and they were unable to come to a harmonious conclusion. The result is that nine delegates remain in the Convention, ten withdrew, while five others desire tor the present to suspend their action with the Convention without leav ing it and without taking part in any other bo dy. In suspending action with the Convention, they hope that there may vet arise an oppoitu nity to act harmoniously with the Convention, and they therefore retain their seats and the right to act with the Convention. It is the wish of those who suspend action, and those who withdraw, to request that their votes may not be cast by any other parties. The action on their part has been taken with out anger, and in deep sorrow. It is not for them to question ttie action of any independent sovereignty but it was telt to be their duty and their policy to return to their constituents and leave them tree to act,stsould there be two can didates in the field. He withdrew the naine of Mr. Guthrie from before the Convention as a candidate. He also presented a communication f r om James G. Leech, one of the retiring dele gates, stigmatising the action of the Convention in harsh terms as unfair, and attacking the ma jority in violent language. The latter paper was read first, when Mr. Paine, of Ohio, moved to return the paper im media ely to the gentleman who presented it, and decline to receive it. (Cries ol ''Yes, yes, that's tight." Mr. Paine did not recognizp the right ot the delegates seceding from the Convention to in sult the majority, or impugn the action of the Convention, because a majority pass on the cre dentials ot those claiming seats in the Conven tion. Mr. Caldwell, of Kentucky, assured the Con vention that he had no knowledge of the con tents of the paper just read. It had been han ded to him while oti the floor. The paper would be found perfectly respectful in language and temper. Mr. Paine o! Ohio, moved that the paper he handed back to its author. Mr. Say lea, ol Rhode Island, hoped the mo tion would prevail. The paper was a direct instill to the Convention, as impugning the ac tion ol the Convention, and also a direct insult to the delegates who had taken seats in the t.'on vrntion. He trusted the paper wonlc 1>" i" stantly separated Irorn the others, and returned to the writer. He acquitted Mr. Caldwell of all knowledge ot the contents of the paper, and ldt cer'ain lie would not have presented it it he had known its true character. Mr. Knitn, of Missouri, hoped the paper would be received. He desired to deteud and ratify the action of this Convention on the stump, and this paper was tlie best argument against the action oi theseceders. Mr. Richardson, of Illinois, suggested that the reading of the other papers be completed first. Mr. Leech, of Kentucky, disclaimed any in tention to offer an insult to the Convention, or any of its members. He believed the tacts sta ted in his paper were incontrovertible. Be lieving them true, he had stated them plainly, but without intent to insult the Convention. The reception of the paper was unanimously declined, and it was returned to the writer. Mr. West, of Connecticut, called for the question on proceeding to a ballot (or can didates. This is the sixth day of the session anil the country is weary of the proceedings. Air. Reed, of Kentucky, on the part of a por tion of the delegation from Lentucky, declared that he had seen no cause why Kentucky should desert the Democratic Convent-on and the Dein ociatic party. The doomed city was to be sa ved if five true limn could be found therein. Here were nine delegates from Kentucky who intended to redeem and save that State. They recognize this Convention as the only Conven tion ot the National Democratic party. They will have no sectionalism at the South or North. They will stand here as a pillar of fire between the men ot both extremes. They art- not going to abandon the Convention because one great leader, whose pathway from Washington to the great West tiad been illuminated by gallant deeds, was evidently to be nominated. The State of Kentucky would come to the support of the nominee ot this Convention, whoever lie may he, and the delegates present would stand bv the action ot tile Convention "though the heavens fall." His colleague had withdrawn the name of Guthrie from before the Convention. He begged on his part to present that name again. Mr. Clark, of Missouri, desired to announce the action of the Missouri delegation alter con sultation. Mr. King of Missouri, hoped his colleague would say a part of the delegation, because some are here who don't wish the idea to go lorth that a consultation was necessary. Mr. Clark said such was the fact. A por tion of the deh gation had met for consultation. Two had agreed to withdraw out of the eigh teen. The remainder will stay here where their constituents sent them—with the Nation al Democratic party ot the Union. Mr. Hill, of North Carolina, announced that while he found nothing in the action of the Convention to cause any man to withdraw, he yet felt that he should paobably be doing injus tice to his constituents if he remained in action with the Convention when the majority had withdrawn. Mr. Moore, ol Delaware, attempted to take the floor, but objections were made and there were loud calls for the question. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, said that only thir teen delegates from Tennessee had withdrawn, it was represented that nineteen delegates had withdrawn; but six of these were simply ap pointed by others and had no delegated author ity. [Cries of quest'on—question '] Mr. Cooper, of Tennessee, rose to a question of privilege, and a scene ot excitement ensued. He desired to reply to .Mr. Jones, hut the latter disclaimed any allusion to Mr. Cooper, and the Convention drowned his voice by cries of "Question, question." Mr. Jones, of Pennsylvania, raised a point of order. This was no place to settle private quar rels. The President decided that all the remarks were out ol order. He desired to present to the Convention two papers, one from Mr. Stur man, ot Arkansas, the other lrom the delegates from Georgia. Mr. Paine, of Ohio, moved to suspend their reading, and lay them on the table. After some skirmishing tfiis course was agreed to. Loud calls for the question were then made, when The President, Caleb Cashing, rose and beg ged the indulgence of the Convention. He said that when he had accepted of Chairman of this Convention, he was aware of trouble looming up in the distance. He had lemained with the Convention in his seat, in the hope that harmony of counsel would at last prevail. . That hope was fallacious, and he deemed it his dut* in the present emergency, while tendering his gratelul acknowledgements to all gentlemen lor the courtesy extended to him, and particularly to those who had differed with him in policy, and while expressing his personal regard ami cordial respect for all the members of the Convention, he deemed it his duty now to resign to Mr. Todd, ot Ohio, his seat in the chair. [A loud and sudden burst ot applause broke forth at this period of h ; s speech, the President rapping to order.] Mr. Gushing added, amidst tiie confusion, that he would now take his seat on the floor of the Convention, to abide by the action of his lei low delegates. The applause continued for sevetal moments, ami as Mr. Gushing left the chair, the whole Convention in a body ro3e, the members wa ving their hats and handkerchiefs, and clapping their hands ami crying 44 G00d ! Good I Now we shall have a lair man in the chair." Mr. Todd, of Ohio, Vice President, then took the chair, and was received with loud applause. He briefly addressed the Convention, declaring that for over thirty years he had fought under the Democratic banner in Joshua R. Gidding*' district, and he should not flinch from the toe now. He asked the indulgence of the Conven tion while endeavoring to discharge the du ties which devolved upon him. Air. Butler, of Massachselts, lose, but the Convention refused to hear him, and a scene of confusion ensued, until the Chair appealed to the honor of the Convention, when order was restored. Several attempts were made to interrupt the proceedings, but the Chair quietly but stradriy insisted on the andpresei vation of order, an imme diate vote on the question ordered last evening. The resolution to proceed with a ballot was •hen adopted, and the lull was called. When Massachusetts was called, Air. Butlei claimed the floor to explain rh- po-ition ol the j delegation. He presented a protest against the exclusion ol one of the delegation, and with drew from fui tf.er action with the Convention. Wtipn Louisiana was called? Mr. SouK spoke for the delegation. He was severe cm those whom he designated as ''political t >csti entrusted in office," and charged that war had been waged .n Douglas by -si a;inv <>f un principled and unscruptil one politicians, i hose who raised the storm are bound to sink and disappear in il. Secession is a word aised to conceal another word, Jttd one ot more stgmli cance. It must beget disunion. Lite reasons given by the secessionists for leavm the Con vention were only a pretext. They were mere t(>ols m the hands ol intriguers. 1 tie South cannot respond to ttipir movement, lie alluded to the admission ol California in the Union as a free Stale, and the threats made at tlie Sontli at the time. They changed their ground then, and their threats to dissolve the Union were not realized. The Southern State had made a sacrifice then in exchange for the principle ot non-intervention. The South ronld not he earnest in its devotion to its principles, it by division among themselves they give up the government to their enemies, North and West. Mr. Soule's speech was long and eloquent, and was repeatedly cheered, esperially when it reflected most severely on the secessionists. At its close lie cast the vote ot Louisiana tor Ste phen A. Douglas. Pennsylvania voted as follows For Dou glas, 10 votes: for Breckinridge, 3 , for Sey mour, I for (iutln ie, 3. The rest declined vol ilio. Great excitement followed the vote of Penn sylvania, with demands to know who the dele gates were that refused to vote. Mr. Russell, ot .Yew York, here withdrew the name ot Horatio Seym-ur, and a read letter from him. 2P. M —The fit*t ballot resulted as fol low* : For Douglas 17of " Breckinridge :> 44 Henry A. Wise I 41 Bocock 1 44 Dickinson 1 44 Guthrie 9 44 Seymour 1 Blank votes 21. Whole number 211 In announcing the vote of Pennsylvania, Mr. Dawson stated that nine delegates had refused to vote. One delegate cast Ins vote for Horatio Seymour, of New York. Dr. Russell (N. Y.) immediately rose and read a letter from Mr. Seymour peremptorily withdrawing his name. The following States were not represented : Delaware, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, California and Oregon—7. Georgia was represented in part hut did not vote. Mr. Church (N. Y) offered the following : Resolved, That Stephen A. Douglas having received two-thirds of all the votes cast in this National Democratic Convention, is, according Ito the ruhs of this Convention and the usages | of the Democratic party, declared to be nomina ted for the ofiice of President of the United States. Mr. Church said that the New York delega tion in this contest had been willing to yield all except their personal honor, and the honor of ffieir constituents, to conciliate and harmonize the Democratic party. But when they were approached and told that they must yield a candidate who was the choice of the Democracy ol the State, and in addition admit uncondi tionally to the Convention men who had sece ded without any jut cause, they had spurned the overtures. They won 11 go home and sweep the State ot New York as a whirlwind. (Laud applause.) They had at Charleston voted to construe the two-third rule to mean two-thirds of the vote of the Electoral College at the request of the South, who remained with them on the pledge that it "they so voted, the South would remain with the Convention. A oortion ol the South had broken the pledge, and now this wrong construction ot the rule was no longer a peace offering. New York was prepared to take all i the responsibility for the resolution he now of j fered. At the solicitation of Coi. Flournoy, (Ark.) who wished anothei ballot, so they could make the vote for Douglas slionger, Mr. Church withdrew his resolution. Eloquent speeches were made by a number ol delegates in favor of Douglas. Mr. David L. Seymour, on tlie part of the Dickinson men ot the New York delegates, vo ted tor Douglas. Mr. Mason, (Ky-) a Guthrie man, gave in his allegiance to Douglas, The second ballot was then announced. SECOND BALLOT. Douglas IS If Breckinridge 7i Guthrie 5f DOUGLAS NOMINATED BY ACCLAMA TION. The resolution declaring Senator Douglas as the nominee, was then seconded, and adopted unanimously. A scene of excitement ensued that ciearlv e viriced the vehemencof the feelings of Douglas's friends, so long pent up. Pile cheers were deafening. Every person in the theatre rose simultaneously, and mani fested their enthusiasm with perfect abandon. Hats and handkerchiefs were waived and thrown into the air, and the whole scene could not*be exceeded jn excitement. From the upper tier, banners long kept in re serve lor this occasion, were unfurled and wa ved before the audience. On the slage appeared a banner which was borne bv the delegation from Pennsylvania, bearing the motto : PENNSYLVANIA GOOD FOR * •s ; 10,000 MAJORITY $ J FOR DOUGLAS! J < ~~ / Cheers lor the 4, Little Giant" were proposed and responded to with a will, until all was a perf-ct roar inside ol the building and on the outside. Afier a considerable time bad elapst-d and something like order restored, the President said— '4Wrtf heartfelt satisfaction, as presiding of ficer of tins Convention, I declare Stephen A.
