Convention met pursuant to adjourn ment. A prayer was offered up by the Rev. W It Dewnt, of Hnrribbiirgh. when Mr. Ranks of Kentucky rose and said, that as a delegate from Kentucky he bad come here In acquiesce in the decision of this Convention ; ho bowed before its determination, and hu could assure the Convention thai tho nomination made last evening would receive the hearty support of bis const it uenisal hum u would not be his fault if it did not. Thn -it-uation of the Kentucky delegation had, he said, been one of peculiar responsibility they had Iboir first choice, but they came hern to sustain the nomination when nmdo, and on iheir part he assured the Convention they would do so, Among his cobltliienis, Mr II. said Hie uoimiiiitinn would bit teceived as it deserved.

Mr Rpverdy Johnson of Maryland, said thai Maryland's choice was well kiinwn it was unneces-nry now In mention the individual. Tho delegation had upheld Unit choice In tho Inst. Rut satisfied, on consultation with I ho delegates from other sections nf the Union, that tho cbuice ol .Maryland would not be the choice of this convention, and that in opinion fa major uy of the delegates there was another name that could carry dismay into t he rank nf the enemy he pmpo-ed, on (he pari ol the delegation from Maryland, lo offer a resolution that the remit of the balloliugs be utiotnninu-ly confirmed, and that Gen.

Mr Cherry, of North Carolina, saidi l hal the Sta'o ho reprerenled had remain ed comparatively quiet in the selection ol the nominee. She had her firt choice a" well as other S'a'cs ; hut she had ton long fought against the spoilers not to know her duty. and she would stand by her -icier Slates in the preccnt contest, by giving ti en. Win. II. Hamsun a deter mined support : and when the election re l urns pome in. said M r (J Ihev will s-how thai 'OLD RIP IS WIDE AWAKE AGAIN!!" Mr. Preston, of Kentucky, said the con volition had already been correctly assured that the delegation from his state came here for conciliation and compromise liar tnony and concession and he was certain that the rcMilutiou he wos about to pro pose was one that would meet the appro batioo of the Convention. It might rial orally be thought, said Mr P. that Ken tucky siands here in ihe altitude of one disappointed ol her favorite choice. Her people it w as true had their preference; hut ihey were Whigs and would sustain their country ; and to prove that their first choice u ill -Detain them in that course, -aid Mr P. 1 will stole that there is now a letter in this Convention from Ihe Hon. II. Clay, that if rend will ili-p'ay the spir that anitn.ites htm to ri'u.,1 i.. t;n.. liar, nson. lie moved that Mr. Combs ol Kentucky, in whose possession Ihe letter wa, he requested lo read it. The Convention by acclamation desired the letter to he read. Mr Combs said that his colleagues had truly represented their State. If, fatd he, the heart nf Kentucky, is bruised, it is noi broken: Kentucky was born a Whig State, i-he has lived a Whig Slate ! and I hope tn God, she may dm a Whig Stale ! The life of her son, IIknrv Ci.av, said Mr C. is his ciilogium uud the hutorian must do htm justice. Mr Comns then read a letter from Mr Clav, urging upon the delegates from Ket: lucky, ihe importance of ol union among the elements of opposition to Van Ruren ism. urging i hem to disregard hw own position, and paying a merited compliment to Gen, Harrison, whom he styled the distinguished citizen of Ohio." On motion the letter was ordered lo be entered on the journals. Gov. Harbour, of Virginia, President of the Convention, said hu rejoiced the letter iroin lUr Llay had been read. For his own part, niter the report of the com. mitten last evening, from rumors which he heard, hu had been inclined to think that other action might ho taken. As regards I ho disinterested subject of the proposed action, said Gov Ii. distinguished bv the great crisis when this Union senned tn he Ihrealeupil, 1 would .-ay a word with your permi-ston. When danger portended, it was his patriotism and superior oemus that weathered the s'tjirm. I need not cologne Mr.Cluy, He wi l occupy through all lime one oil ho fairest pages of our coiui. iry s History. When danger has threaten. I'd. Henry Clay has alwuys been the fore most to avert it, and his patriotism und firiniies on all occa-ious, will embalm his fi ry in the hearts of ihe American people. Rut beyond ihe consideration with which as a citizen of the republic, regard Mr 15,, there aru other reasons for my ardent attachment tn him, j have known bun from my infancy, and in the in lereonrse, under ihe gaurd of honorable confidence and private friendship, on no ec easioti have I ever heard a sentiment trotu Henry Clay which was not that of mi ar dent put r ml and devoted Iriend of his county, There is no "elfi-hncs' about bun no petty schpiiiing for his own advance ment. And had it been your pleasure, gentlemen, tn nominate hmi in ihe Presi deuyc. his elecnou would have opened a now epoch in Ihe history of our country. Ho would not have been Ihn little, dntv, petty tool of a party; bin would have cleansed ihn Augean stable and made us a happy people, But nnlwithslanding my feelings for Mr Clay, said Gov. R and tho hopu" cuter lamed that he would receive the nnuiina lion, I havu come to the conclusion thai so far as my vote and influence go, they shall sustain the harmony of this Convention, and I shall therefore vote for Ihe una n i rnmis nomination of GEN. VM. II. HARRI30N. Jlr B W Leigh, of Virginia, said that ho concurred in the sentiments of his col- 1 in his vole for Ihe unatiiinoiH entry of Ihe nomination on the journal. The letter ol ,M( Clay was an evidence that in his heart disinterested patriotism was superior to all other feelings. He Mr L could not think that the ambition ofsiichn mini as Henry City could be gratified by being nude President, lie has already secured a fatti" that will live as long as pure gov ernmenta renown thai will survive the marble mnnuineiii that will cover his grave noil a renown more valuable in his Mr L' opinion than any station, however ex alted ii may be. ftlr Leigh sunt that one of the pnrpo-es for which Ihe Convention had met had been accomplished, nod he for one would give his heart and hand to crown its labors with sticce-s. JVr Leigh olsn said that he Inn had had corrcpondence corrc-pnndenru with ht ml itnntp, old personal Iriend, Gun. Win field Scoll, nod ho could ii-sori: tin; Coir Vent ion , i hal ho Ion would sanctum their proceeding" ; with his vole and influence. Mr. I A K'ltg. of New York, said that i'B n ri preventative nf New ork, he re gretted Hint the ehnice nf his Smte had not prevailed injllie tioininal'ou : hut, stud .Mr K. we have surrendered him with man ty fiimiipsj, because we know that the choice cuii M not but fa'l upon an Individual worthy nl the support ol American Iree men. Our votes have been .cast tn the conviction that the cauud.ite nf this ('on vent ion will ult iuiately carry. We have presented to thepinple n name unsullied bv any spot of civil or military dohnqnouc'. We have g'ven tho Uit ligu shod indiv dir at our tinhi s lating snppori.

Mr Dudley Seidell, of New York, 'aid he wa.-one of ihe minority, who formed one third of the delegation from that Suite and went with ihe reprsentative' of Ken Micky and Virginia in the selection of a candidate. They had pursued that object till success became hopeloss; but whatever may have been our preferences, said Jlr S.. we concur heartily in carrying out the ileeisinu of i he Convention. Mr .1 Roberts, o Pennsylvania, ad' dres-ed the ConvenOon in favor of Ihe nomination. He ,-anl he hud been in fa' vnr ol I no iiomiuiiiii.il nf Mr Clay ; but he ing out 'vnted, would not only acquiesce, hill would unite heartily in the snppori nf Gen. Win , Harrt-on. anil would do oil in Iin power in lurlher his election. Mr 11. Johnson of Maryland then offered the following resolution : Resolved, That this Convention utmiir niou-lv recutn nil to the people ol the United Slates, Gen. WM. H. IJarrnnn.nl Ohio, as a enuiliil.ile for Pre-tdeol, and JOHN TYLER, of Vigtnia.ns a candidate for Vice President. Before tho qti'Stinn was taken. Gov Owen nf Norlh Cu'olina, said the ballot committee were ready to report on Ihe subject of tho Vice-Presidencv: That '.'31 vo'es had been cast for Vice President the vole of Virginia not having been cast, end that the 231 voles hud am, been cast for JOHN TYLER, of Virginia, who was accordingly reported bv the committee as the candidate fof the Vice-Presidency. ftlr. B, W. Leigh, of Viigima, then stated thai the vole of Virginia had not been carl because it was understood that Mr. Tyler, one of the delegation, would in nil probability receive the nominal ion, and lehcacy therefore forbade their participa tion. Col. Swift of Pennsylvania, briefly ex pressed his original prelereneo lor the dts- i ingui-hi'd Si a i ps, nan of Ken tuck v Henrv Clay and concluded by declaring his de termination to yield his preference, and heartily and cordially lo give his support i the nommaiinu of the Convention, and return lo his Coiistn iients and recommend to them lo do so likewise. Mr. Sprngup nf Ma-sochiisetts. next rnse nnd congratulated the convention on (he happy result which was about to crown its labors. He relerred to Ihe fact that Un delegates came here, much divided in opto mo. noo to tne Hopes entertained bv our eoptnies that ihey would be divided in the selection of a candidate. Happily Ihev have been disappointed. H" alluded to the character and worth of ftlr. Clay, his distinguished services to ihe country, and Ins high admiration of htm. ftln-stichn setts, he said, also bud her fuvnrtte son, but she had yielded up her preferences and yielded mem enrlv--lor the sake nf eon- ciliatmn and success. She had made this sacrifice freely--cordiallyaed she would now rally under Ihe banner of W. II. Har risen with ihe same z-al and the same certainly ofsuccess as with her own favorite sun. ftlr Cliambers ni' Pennsylvania, was nni only willing tn support the resolution of tho gpinlpinr.u from Maryland, hut lo do o cordiiillv and with all his heart. He was ready lo rally under tho banner of W. 11. Harrison, ami support that banner with all the influence that God and nuturo had given bun, ftlr, Simmons of Rhode Llond said in behalf of himself and his delegation, Hint though lasi lo yield their preferences, ihey would be unionjj the first to respond to tho nominal inn. ftlr Vosonfftlaino warmly responded to tho noiiiin.tt,iun.

Jndgo Burnett of Ohio next addressed Ihu Convention nt soma lengih. Altera brici eulogy of Mr Cloy, ho referred to ihe early ht-tory of Gen. Harri-on, and his mi male ncq niiutauce with htm, and testified in the high e-tiunl tun in which he wn held by all who knew him. He condoled bv recommending Ihe unfurling the Union P.ng, Willi the inotlu of Mr Wish ol Virginia. "Union far Ihe mike of Ihe Union." Do this, said he, and all will be will. Mr Livingston 0f n y r(S0 U(, cnm tnpficeil his remarks by a-kiug the qnes lion -where nni I? what has brought me here? nid answered with the emphatic respome, love (if Country! a wish lo see ill'' powers that be i fTeetually prostrated, and Ihccoun'ry redeemed from tho hands of Ihn spoilers. He alluded In hu nld age and leebleupcs, gating that even then he was scarcely able to proceed. He said he had ber n n democrat all Ins life, had noor been oir .-I the harness. He ever had end ever W'iild adhere to the principle that tile majority govern. When that principle was hist sight of there must be an end ol the Republic. ftlr L. briefly eulog zed the character nf Mr Clay The winld he said would do himjii-tice. His fame would be ndmired by mier generations. Next lie adverted to Ihe chirae.ter of Gen. Harrison. He -aid ho likfd Ins diameter. He knew him well, and nothing had been -aid ni Ins pnu-e that, was not slrtcUy true. Ohio he said win Id go fur hiiiy acclamation, and he wa per-uaded from what he had learned I fit I the Keystone would ye be the arch if Ihe Union. H then drew a vivid picture of Marim Van Bureii, and referred tn the duwownril tendency of ihn ciuntry undi'i- ' Ins adnimi-tra-Hon winch, he said, had put the repnbl e radically wrong, hut he had every confi denro lint we wnuhl soon get r'nilicallv right Vhen he had realized thw belief, he wouh descend to the tomb happv and cnn'cntel. Gov. Meicalf of Kentucky was portico lorly haipy in his remarks. Kentucky's fovoritf'-on, he said, h.nl lost the Humilia tion, but had he him-ell been here, he would hive done precisely what ihe deh gallon from t hat 8'ate are prepared In do -enter heartily into the support of the nouiinaiinn. Success i-, and ever has been his first object. The man who can best secure that siicpcps- lo Ihe parly, is ihe man ho would rally under so will in friends. As regarded linn-elf, he did not -aenfiensn much as did many other of the friends ol ftlr Clay ; he moved only from the side of one noble friend, to u,;e ns stand firmly by the side nf number and no less noble friend The country had nni done Gen. Ilarsison jn-tice. He has done more for his country and received less tor his s.-rvion limn nny man livmrr. Ho pos sessed both civil and military capacities ol the first order, which should entitle him lo the admira'ion of the people. Gov. ftl. -aid he came here in lavnr of Kentucky's favorite son. bellying him to he the canili dale mn.-t likely tn siiece. d. Sine" ho had been here, he had inlorehai.ged sentiments wnh the delegates from the various Siati--. ami had nninc lo the conclusion that he was in xioken. He was now prepared to go for the strongest man. and overturn the powerful despotism under which we were now suffering. Let not the song of dem ocracy cheat Ihe people. He had ever I.e. n a democrat not one of i he democrats ol the present day he wasauold fashioned democrat. He verily believed that the name of democracy had cheated half Un people out nf their senses. He here drew a vivid picture nf the corruption uf the present powers that be. und ihe enormities committed under the name of democracy Ho regarded it as his duly, he sain, t warn the people against such denmciacy. lie hoped, he said in coneln-inn, for in- umnli. i'he Hunters of Kentucky' will be found true to the great Whig party nl i ii e union. ftlr IJnnrdmon, of Connecticut, earnestly supported the nomination. Gen. Wilson.nl' New Ilompshire. was very hanpy in his remarks. He expressed the heliel ilial his StBle, though her pros peels had been dark and gloomy, would respond lothn tiniuiuallou of Harrison and Tyler in a spirit nf enthusiasm winch would enable her tn triumph over ihe pre 'in corrupt parly in power. He related -everal anecdotes, and applied them very happily. ' ftlr Hilliard, of Alabau a, said that he rejoiced In hear the voice nf congrulohilion sounding all rnuiid htm, and that be enter tamed the same put nut in feelings as the gentleman v.hu preceded him His own preferences, he said, hail been ardent for Clay, bul he would siond or loll with the nominee of this Convention. He was re solved to sacrifice and risk every Hung fur the good of the cause; and he fell assured that the delegates would all go home with an account of their proceeding, that will impart a corresponding enlhasiasiii in the bosoms of Iheir constituents. Mr Merrill, uf Penn-ylvaina. supported the re-olulion in a lew excellent remarks. Mr Tiippor, nf Mississippi, sun! that the .Mississippi delegation had cast the vote of thai Stale for II. Clay, and perhaps the Whigs of ihe Sinie will be disappointed in Ihe result of our deliberations; bin they will go for the uouiinee ofihisCouveiilinni and ihn land nf Pumdexter nnd Preuliss, as she has dune before, will do hur duly ulill ; unci from Ihe hariuuny of tins Convention, and the enthusiasm manifested by the members, he fell sati-lied she can bo rescued from ihe spoilers under thu banner ol tho Hero ul ripiieeanoci. ftlr Whitehead, of New Jersey, said he too had had his first choice. Ho had been over. ruled by the majority, hul he did not complain; and would cheerfully abide by tho decision of the Convention. The nominee had onco before received tho vote of Now Jersey, and was assured he would do so again. Mr Riissel, of ftli-snuri, comm"iiced his remarks by slating thnt ho came from the State of the great rxpungcr. Dark cloud- hod long lowered ever that Slates but light H now breaking thruvgh them. There are siill some green spots on which ihe cvo nvcH to re-t. His first choice had not been selected, but we leave htm to the lip nils of his country, with the wrpaih of fn inn covering his hrnw. The Whigs of Missouri, said Mr R , will support Ihe nominee of this Conveultoo. Gen. Harrison, nnd tflheir ilect-ton should I'nll in the latter, Ihey will hope to b. re joiced by the shout of victory from their sister hiatus. There ore considerations in Missouri that make Ihe name of Gen. Harrison a lower of strength, lie is rich mi the nfi'ec lions of his cnonlryuiPii, and the Wlns ol Missouri will do their best will die in the last ditch. ftlr Graham, of Louisiana, said that he and the Whig.- of the State ho represented ' had Iheir just ehnice. lint their prayers will be offered up for the success of the ticket. ftlr Newtnn nf Virginia, snid that the Slate which had Ihe honor lo be the birth place of ihe first savior of his country, will prove lo he the birlh-p'oco of Ihe second savior of Ins muinlrv. He said the chnrae lei of Gen. Harrison i now much tnis-un. derstood. and when better understood will be better appreciated. Judge Huntington, of Iridium said that thai slate lias been whig and is whig to ihe core. He was ccrlnin she would give Gen H.irri-on a Lrge majority in l(j.0 lie himself te.-uled til Pud Harrison, and he knew there was tin man there who nip purled the general in V,1G. when the stale gave htm fiOOO majority, who would not do so again. The Judge referred to the course of Gen II. tn Congress in relerence lo Ihe public lands and the early settlers, who instead of an enemy as they feared, found him their best friend, He al-o referred lo thedcclor niton of Col. R. ftl. Johnson, thai Gen. Harrison has fought more battles than any man in tho country, and "never lost a bat tle." The Judge said he was sure he never will lo-e n battle, and that his nomination will be received in the Wei with a burst of enthusiasm never before known in ihe country. The question was then taken on the res oliition or ftjr Johnson, when u was U N A Nl AIOUSLY ADO PTE D. A resolution was then offered and odont- "d. ongratulating the constituents of Ihe Convention on the result of its del berations. and rPPiimiiiunilincr liio rnmn hnrniony noil Pill lltl 0 in - III among thorn tlml Imvu uloiroo tenz-'d the prncee. tings of Ihe delegates. Mr Preston of Kentucky ofi'ercd a reso lution relative to the adoption of an addres to the people of the U. States. Mr R. W. Leigh opposed the motion, believing no uddre.-s necessary. He said he should bo in favor of leaving the nnmi natinn to its own weight. lie was not for acting on the defensive bul on the offensive. He was fur carrying thu war into Africa for arraigning the spoilers before the bar of thu American penplc fur high crimes and mi-demeanors when they will receive ihe piini-hinetit dun I hem, nnd Ihe only punishment Ihey can receive under our institutions dismissal from office now and forever. ftlr Pendleton, of Ohio, made some remark-' which we could nut hear. Mr liiirneM nf (Massachusetts, said there was no need nf on address. II the vniceot Ihe West rolling down from the mountains nnd ainng the vnlhes of the Atlantic be not better thou all addresses thai ever were issued, then indeed a miracle has been wrought. ftlr Preston's resolution was withdrawn ftlr Pendleton, nf Ohio, stated that n was the wi-li of General Harrison, only to serve but ONK TERM, if elected lo ihe Pre-idency. A resolution was then submitted by R. Johnson of Marylandand agreed lo, re commending ihe friends uf correct princi ples tn the dillereni Stales, lo hold Conven linns nn the 22d uf Pehruary next, or such day as may be agreed upon, fur the pur pose ol nominating electoral tickets, and general organization. On mnlion of Gov. Owen of North Caro. Ittia, n couiinillee of one from each delega. lion was appointed lo infrnm the nominees of the Convention of their unii'inaiion.
