Spencer for Com missioners of Taxes; James Anderson for Sur veyor. and Richard Groome for Sheriff. ^J* Irwin, ot this city, (formerly ol Kentneky.) being cailed out, spoke as follows: Gentlemen If I were to consult my modesty, for which 1 think I have a very fair reputation, I should decline to address you upon this occa sion. but the dattering manner with which you have greeted me, and the hearty weleome ex tended to me by friends in Kockvillc. will ex cuse me for occupying yuur time, which, I promise in the beginning. shajl only be for a tew minute*. I am grwttflcd at the uhnnfmity with which tae Democrats ot' Montgomery have been able to select their standard bearers in the corain^ contest, and although I have no persona! ac^ quaintance either with those who have been selected, or with those who havo failed to se cure nominations, yet I am convinced that now the selections have been made, that the Demo crats of the eouuty of Montgomery will present an unbroken front, which is all that is waatinr to secure a triumphant victory. Gentlemen, we live in a most eventful period in the history of the country; nothing which has been written in reference to the condition of mankind in any age. or in any country, would seem sufficient to furnish rules for our govern ment and our wants, hooce it becomes us to watch with the most jealous solicitude all the issues and all the antagonisms which would seem to militate agaimst individual happiness. the rights of the States, and the glorious union of t< alMthe a 1uest'on 'n my opinion paramount Within the past few years questions of vast importance have arisen, threatening the integ rity ?i the Union itself, and I might state that in mmifs localities, both North and South, they have not been discussed with that calmness which a due consideration of their importance would seem to demand, nor with that accuracy wnich the American people are apt to bestoW upon political questions, so vitally affrctfng tbe r interest and their happiness. These questions grow out of the views enter tained by the hepublican party in the North in reference to the power of Congress ovor the ques tion of slavery in tho Territories of the United ; certain opinions of the American party the know Nothing*?upon the extension of the naturalization laws, operating covcrtly XS?- r,rcjadioes of country ii ii? exclusion of Catholics Irom the right otf suf ^ have been able to understand the Kno.v orator3' tho Paramount object for which diey have contended, and from which in calculable blessings was to result to the Amer ican people, it was the extension of the Nature'? ^awt3 fro? fiv? to twenty-one years, S! ? 7 a fo.reifncr ??P<>n the samu foot mgaa a child born in Aineriea.

NO. 1,423 would operate upon the emigrants who might wish to settle in such Territories from any *rc tmn of the I nion, would be invidious and wrung : that emigration should he untrameled; that when a sufficient number of persons shall have settled in such Territory as would entitle them to admission in tho Union, thnt the citi zens in such Territory alone have the right to determine for themselves whether slavery is to be tolerated or not. without control from any quarter. "Hands off," gentlemen; let legitimate emigration and settlement decide tho question. Could anything l*> more fair?could anything 1)0 proposed that would seem more consistent and proper? I must confess that I have feared Mint this contest in reference to the question of slavery in the Territories was only a -masked battery behind which our Republican friends meditated an attack upon one of the compromises of the Constitution. I mean that portion of it which, in making up the ratio of our Federal Repre sentatives. allows three-fifths of the slave pop ulation to be counted to make up the number It ever our Northern friends shall undertake and carry such a proposition as would strike out this constitutional right from the Southern ^tn tcs. no human power could prevent a disso lution of the I nion. No man South. who had the slightest rognrd for the rights of the State*, or of constitutional obligations, would for a mo ment remain in tho Union when the majority had set aside her constitutional rights, and when numbers had over-ridden the most solemn obligations. T am tho more inclined to this opinion from the union which has taken place in Pennsylva nia between the Know Nothings and tho Re publicans, and which must result in a contest between the North ami South?a sectional issue that has for its settlement this question, and this question alone. Let me read you a letter, written by John D. Clyde, 1 resident of Pennsylvania State Council. .Hear it. Americans of Maryland, those of you that feci the Republicans of the North arc play ing a game at war with your dearest interest, and let me ask you are willing to give " aid and comfort'' to a party which has been shown to be abolitionists throughout the entire North. Hear it, Democrats of Montgomery, and charge home upon your adversaries that every vote that is given in Maryland to the Know Nothing ticket is in effect voting to sustain tho Northern Re publicans. and at war with the institutions of Marylaoul; "TAxER,CASS ?A fcw ?t*aiiiht mln. ..J Cin"' rt'saPProv'"2 Of the union mov. resulted In the nomination of David ililYi fb'0?v*??r, have issued a rail for an American State Convention at Lancaster on the Jo or June.
