The Inttlligtnctr, in answer to an article in the Star upon the enlistment controversy, and which article contained soma strictures upon the remarks of the Intelligtncer u|>on this subject, say?: " To intimate that times of high political excitement are not the most conducive to the prevalence of wise and sober counsels is sure ly to convey no other imputation upon the President, than to suppose him a partaker in our common humanity. The evil deplored by such a moralism is personal to no individ ual; it peemi to inhere in the very genius of free institutions." m The Unitii i? devoted mainly to new*, po litical and otherwise. THE CINCINNATI CONVENTION. [EDITORIAL CORR*8rO!?DBJ?CE ] CiNcurvATi, May 31, 1856 THE CROWD. The large throng with whom we traveled over from Washington reached this city this morning at two o'clock, (the railroad connec tion having been made all through,) owiDg to the politeness and spirit of accommodation characterising the management of the great route ef travel via the Baltimore and Ohio) Ohio Central, and Little Miami railroads. A slight deiangementof an engine, and the mar tyrdom of a few fat cattle, caused eoi#fe little delays that might have resulted in our laying over for from twelve to twenty-four hours but for the spirit of accommodation to which we refer above, which, by the by, on that route, always insures a continuous trip between the coast cities and this emporium of the West, when the traveler does not desire to atop by the way. There are believed to be, this morning, about eleven thousand strangers in Cincinnati, who eame to attend the Convention as dele gates. alternates, lobby members, excitement hunters, politicians, showmen, pedlers, news, paper men, and the Lord knows what else. Three-fourths of those who throng the halls of the Burnett House at this moment (which remind me precisely of the halls of Bar cum's Hotel, Baltimore, when a similar im portant affair was in progress in that city in 1848, and again in 1852.)(are now electioneer ing for Mr. Buchanan, as the same sort of peo pie electioneered in 1852 for General Cass; loeal clubs principally. New York sent her Empire clubs to Baltimore ; and now Philadel phia sends, we imagine, quite two thousand outsiders, composed in fart of just such gen tlemen, among them being one engine com pany, numbering about two hundred, we hear. The different delegations of the different large States have headquarters in the Burnett House? t. reception rooms?which are con stantly crowded by persons from their respec tive States principally. The Pennsylvania room, of course, contains most person.*, as Penn sylvania has sent so large an electioneering del egation here. A few moments ago their band of music was at work there, while in another cor ners ome one was endeavorirg to make himself heard as an advocate for the nomination of Mr. Buchanan above the interminable din ef the doien brass pieces which made the place unbearable; the accompanying buzz of hun dreds of voices being anything but an accom paniment in accord with them Mr. John Pettit, of Indiana, appears to be the most active ^iotrhwestern Buchanan men on the ground, though every one now here from that region who looks with disfavor, se cret or avowed, upon the Nebraska-Kansas act, is doing his best for Mr. B. So manifest Is this tendency of the gentlemen referred to ?bove, as that it is really doing more to pre vent Mr. Buchanan's nomination than the venciaent electioneering of his host of outside friends to bring about that eveu. Up to this hour it ii impossible to say how Virginia will vote on the first ballot. The Buchanan men of course claim her, though I cannot make the figures come out so. Her course will be determined by the votes of the different dis trict delegations as such. Mr. Buchanan has six of them and some members of other di? trict delegations; but not enough to secure him the eight whole district delegations ne cessary to cast Virginia's vote for LIm. I shall not be surprised if Mr. Hunter receives her vote on the first ballot The Mississippi delegation met this morn ing, numbering fifty-nine, and by a vote of all but three of them, determined to east the rote of the State for Pierce, and passed a res olution declaring it to be their duty as Demo crats to stand by President Pierce to the last This resolution was offered by Mr Sicgleton, * U Wl11 bo collected, was in the last House of Representatives. It would ke worse than useless to speculate upon the probability of the nomination. Strong efforts are beinjr made to make combinations likely to effect results. The rumor is, that Tennessee, 0oor gia, and Indiana, last night concluded to vote for Mr. Buchanan. We have no faith in it whatever, regarding it a? a tub thrown to the whale. That is, as a bait to obtain for him the votes of delegates from other States believed not yet to have made up their minds When it is said that Tennessee is sure for *r. Buchanan, it is also said that Gov. A. V. Brown will be the nomine, for Vice President. one t?l!s that Georgia is sure for Mr. is eer'tl* th&t Hon.

THK CONVENTION. thattInJi? ^t*U mornins, I ascertained hat Ind'.na, W.sconsin, and Connecticut had e c.mmed to rota unanimously for Buohan that Ohio will probably start out 14 for to 9 against him. Knowing that there will be more or lets rotes from non-slaveholding States which will abandon their first choice for others not long henoe, I forsee his nomina tion, unless in making the platform and set tling other contested questions it may become apparent that a considerable wing of his northern strength is unwilling to endorse the present attitude of the Democracy in Con gress upon the slavery questions in all its points and bearings. Any such demonstra tion will unite a sufficient number of the Vir ginia delegation to make his nomination im possible, as were she to hold out against him, it would be impossible for him to get two thirds. I must do his Pennsylvania friends the jus tice to write that we at the South could not reasonably ask more than their tone on that subject, as manifested in conversation. It is undeniably true that much of the outside pressure for his nomination is the result of a disposition to bring in the rotes of men of free soil tendencies?anti-Nebraska-bill men? those who, while professing acquiescence in the questioned feature of fhe Kansas-Nebraska act, are eternally disputing the propriety of its original enactment. I have no fancy for such Democrats, and would prefer fighting the contest without them Hence my earn est opposition to Mr. Buchanan's nomination. I deprecate the day when their counsels will have weight in those of the great Democratic party, and do not comprehend as yet, how, after courting their votes in making a nomi nation, we can with any degree of Self-respect fail to accord to them frankly the weight in determining our future course as a party, legitimately due to their numbers as an iute gral portion of the Democratic organization However, if they will pledge themselves in Convention! hereafter to sustain the doctrines of the party as they will be laid down if the South remains in political conncction with them throughout the canvass, the evil may bo cured, and we who hold to ultra State rights' doctrines may labor heartily for Mr. Buchanan's election, in the belief that his administration will be heartily Democratic, as we understand the principles of the Demo cratic party to be. W. D. W- n Cincinnati, June 2, 1856 The speech of Col Medary, on taking his seat as temporary chairman this morniBg, was a capital one, and was delivered with much feeling. He went over the history of his con nection with each succeeding Democratic con vention, and illustrated, with force, the duty of standing by the conservative features cf tbe Democratic organization. Much of the time of this first (morning) session was occupied in the delivery of a prayer, of interminable length, by a local clergyman The Benton delegates from Missouri having in vain applied for tickets of admission, forced their way into the ball by knocking down tbe doorkeeper, and, rushing in, took seats on the floor. The other delegation having prima facie evidence of regularity, received the tickets of admission from the Committee of Arrangements. Members of the Benton dele gation who, as before remarked, entered forci bly, essayed to address the chair, to protest against the recognition of any member of the other delegation by the chair Mr. Richardson, of Illinois, called attention to the fact that they had entered by force, and tbe consequence was, they were not per mxtted to be heard. The Chair invited them to retire and refer their claims to the Com mittee on Credentials ; and percciving that their presence, after entering as they did, would not be tolerated by tbe mass of the Convention at that time, they gracefully and cheerfully retired, bowing to the decision of the majority. Great confusion existed through out the whole morning, owing to want of ex perience in such bodies on the part of many of its members. The best temper, however, was preserved. I close this brief letter just as a disposition to adjourn for dinner is being manifested, at 2i P- m W. D. W h. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP A Shriek from the Organ -Our talented, truthful, and most essentially used up neigh bor. goaded on by tbe mortification of defeat, and by the reproaches of its deluded followers who, confiding in iti reckless gasconade, have lost tbeir money upon the contest, changes its tune in a single day, from the confident swag ger of certain victory, to most imbecile win nings, and the absurdest excuses to soothe the natural indignation of the duped Know Noth ings it has contrived to betray. Thus, in its blind flurry we find it making the most cruel charges against the appointees of its own party It says : ' Many of the commissioners, when a voune American would swear on the Bible that he was twenty-one years of age prior to Decem ber last, would require other proof; while tbe s*me commissioners would take tbe oath of irishmen, that they were duly qualified resi dent* of the city, when men were near bv ready to swear that these same Irishmen were <?MarJlantl; but it ww sufficient for these IKwr men to know that they now slept in the city isterid toY Cai*3,the ?at? #f a?e admin" 1?? ? i .bearded men. Besides this, govern ment clerks voted by scores?some of whom ?n ,*"d 0tkors k?own to have voted in the States during the last six months." Now, were the fact not upon official record it would scarcely be deemed credible, that the very Commissioners thus be* .ted by the Organ are men relected for and elected to the office by the Know Nothing City Coun cils ; that the anti-Know Nothing members of the Councils wero not allowed any lot or choioe in the selection of Commissioners, and that to such an extent did the Know Nothings carry theirspiritof unfairness and illiberality that some of the anti-Know Nothings declined voting and withdrew in disgust. These facts are notorious, and yet in the face of them the Organ would palm off its ridiculous fables upon its dupes as a sufficient reason why" they lost their money. But the Organ can, if it chooses, see some thing more in the result of this election, than a mere municipal defeat. It cannot avoid fleeing the universal collapse, which has be fallen the bubble upon which it had staked its political fortunes. We do not wonder then *l th* perturbation and dismay displayed by our u-ed up neighbor under the double task of accounting to it, victim, for present defeat ,t,oir for u"u>b" Farther Fruits of Higher Law ?Th* f. unfortu?ate" has been harried mor* death, all unprovided, into the \ his Eternal Judge. From the awful JX' of Batehelder, in Boston, while acting in de. ferce of the laws providing for the rendition of the fugitive slave Jarns, we have been taken through a series of riots, atrocities, and murders unparalleled in the annals of civil* iied nations. The murder of Father Bapst, at Calais, Maine, for no ether apparent rea son than that he was a Catholic prie?t, the murderous riots in Portland, Maine, at Cin cinnati, Ohio, and at Louisville, Kentucky, where unoffending Oerman citizens were mur dered in cold blood, and their little children shot at the mother's breasts?are fresh in the painful recollections of all. What is the cause, where the source of this fall spirit of misrule 7 The subject may be ungracious, but good men must look at it fair in the face. Is not answer to the broad question found in that higher law doctrine first promulgated by Senator Seward, and since elaborated and carried into praotioal execution by Sumner, Beeoher, Silliman, Giddings, and company ? Is there any other solution of the problem ! The intemperance of thought and language indulged by Siliman and Beecber in New Haven meeting-house4, and by WilEon, Sumner, and Hale, in the United States Senate, has at last produced results with the uneducated and bad men throughout the country. The treasonable sentiments of Abolition and Know Nothing orators and presses hare brought things to this sorry pass The men who utter them are responsible for these riots, atrocities, and murdersof which we have heard of late. They are the men who counselled, encouraged, and inspired John Essex to bru tally stamp out the life-blood of Owen Quig ley. Will the sympathisers of Sumner shed any tears over Quigley'a untimely death ? We shall see. Letter from Mr. Sumner?It would seem from the following extract of a letter written by Mr. Sumner to Theodore Parker of Boston, and read by the latter gentema" before an anti-slavery convention in that city, that Mr. P. intended to pronounce what should be an insult to South Carolina, and to inflict in his seat in the Senate personal indignity on a fellow Senator then absent. The extract reads thus : "The tyranny over uj is complete Will the people submit to it? When you read this I shall be saying in the Senate that they will not I shall pronounce the most thorough phillippic ever heard in this legislative body." Is it any wonder that with such language uttered by grave Senators that degraded men think they too can avenge their own wroDgs ? They make up " the people," and why should " they submit" to laws ? Texai Debt ?We understand the Treasury Department paid on Monday, Tuesday, and to II o'clock to-day, to the creditors of the late Republic of Texas under the act of Con gress of the 28th of February, 1855, $4,359, 524.12.
