Second Day's Proceedings Adoption of Resolutions?Strong l*lanifesta*ions of Aati-McClcllan Feeling-A Row and a Knock-Down?Tht Peace Men Bellige rent. Got. Seymour continued his speech as fol lows: Nay, more than this, they will not listen to a prr nosal for peace which does not offer that which this Govern meut has no right to ask. This Administration cannot now save this Union if it would. It ha?, by its proclamations, by ita vindictive legislation, and by displays of bate and passion, placed obstacles la its own pathway which it cannot overcome. It has transferred its own freedom of action by ua cor e ti t ? t tonali ties. It cannot be said that the failure of its policy is dne to the want of courage and devotion on tbe field of onr armies. Never In the history of the world have soldiers given up their lives more freely than have those of tbe armies which have battled for the flag ot oar Union in the southern States. The world will hold that they have done all that armies can do, and had wise statesmanship secured the fruits o? their victories, to-day there would have been peace in onr land. But while'our soldiers have desperately struggled to carry our banners south to the Gulf of Mexico, even now the Go v ernment declares, in the edict of a general, that rebellions discontent has wended northward to the shores of the great latees. In conclusion Mr. Seymour said: We were unwilling to presentan appearance of factions opposition, but when we shall have gained power that oilicial who shall violate one prin ciple of law, cne single right of the humblest mnn in our land, shall be punished by the fnll rigors of the law. It matters not whether he sits in the Presidential chair, or holds a hum ble office under our Government. We bad upon this floor a touching and significant proof of folly. The Administra tion have driven from their support those upon whom they chiefly leaned at the outset of the rebellion. Then their hopes, even for their own personal safety, were npon noblemen in the border States, who, nnder circumstances most trying, severed family relationship and ancient associations to uphold the flag of onr country. Many of these men are now members of this Convention. They bear impressed upon their countenances and manifest in their pres ence tbe high and generous purpose which animated them; and yet it is true?Great God tb a it should be true?they are strong with a seme of injustice and ingratitude of low and nnworthy men, who have insulted and ruined then and their families, and trampled on their ilglieby vindicative legislation, and through the igency of miserable and dishonorable sub ordijates. Geitlemen, Ido trust our proceedings here will ?e marked by narmony. I do earnestly believe we shall be animated by the greatness of this occasion. In all probability the future destiny of our country bangs npon our action. Let his consideration inspire us with a spirit of hirmeny. G?d of our lathers, bless us now! Lift us u 1' Ebove all personal considerations; fill us witl a just Idea of tbe great responsibilities whi ;<: rest upon us, and give again to our land its Union, its peace, and its liberty. Tf.e speech was greeted with cheers. Mi. Guthrie, chairman of the committee on resolutions, stated that several resolutions offered to the said committee yesterday had been referred to a sub-committee, and that there was reason to believe they would be ready to report this afternoon, and further more that there was a fair prospect of a har monious conclusion. After some debate, the convention took a re cess till 4 o'clock. Afternoon Session. The convention reassembled at 4 o'clock. Mr. Guthrie stated that tbe Committee on Resolutions had agreed, and were ready to re port. The resolutions were read as follows: linolced, That in the rutnre, as in the past, we will adhere with unswerving fidelity to the Union and the Constitution, and Insist on maintaining our national unity as tbe only solid foundation of our strength, security, and hnpptnees as a people, and as the framework oi Government equally conducive to tbe wel fare and prosperity of all the States, both ISorthern and Southern. Resolved, That this convention does explicit ly declare, as the sense of the American peo I le, tbat, after four years of failure to restore the Union by tbe experiment ot war, during wbicb, under tbe pretence of military necessi ty, or the war power, higber than the Consti tution, the Constitution itself bas been disre garded In every part, and public liberty and private right alike trodden down, and the ma terial prosperity of the country essentially im paired. Justice, bnmanity, liberty, and the public welfare demand tbat immediate effort? be made for the cessation of hostilities, with a view to an ultimate convention of all the States, or other peaceable means te that end, that, at the earliest practicable moment, peace may be restored on the basis of the Federal Union of the States. Resolved, That the direct interference of the military authority of the United States in tbe recent elections held In Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, and Delaware, was a shameful violation of tbe Constitution, and a repeti tion of such acts In the approaching elec tion will be held as revolutionary, and to be resisted with all the means and power under our control. Resolved, That the aim and object of the De mocratic pai ty is to preserve the Federal Union and tbe rights of the States unimpaired; and they hereby declare that they consider Admin istrative usurpation of extraordinary and dan gerous powers not granted by the Constitution; tbe subversion of tne civil by the military law in States not in insurrection;tbe arbitrary mil itary arrest, imprisonment, trial, and sentence ot American citizens in States where civil law exists in full force; the suppression of the free dom of speech and of the press; the denial ot tbe right of asylum; the open and avowed disre gard of State right?: the employment of unusual test oaths, and the interference with and denial of the rigbt of tbe people to bear arms, as cal culated to prevent a restoration of the Union, and tbe perpetuation of Government ?deriv ing its just powers from the consent of the governed." Resolved, Tbat tbe shameful disregard ef the Administration to Its duty in respect to our fellow-citizens who now are, and long have been, prisoners of war, in a suffering con dition, deservee the severest reprobation and scorn alike of tbe public and common human ity. Resclved, That the sympathy of the Demo cratic party is heartily and earnestly extended to the soldiers ot our army, who are and have been in the field under the flag ot our country, and, in tbe event of our attaining power, they will receive all the care, protection, regard, and kindness tbat brave soldiers of the Re public have so nobly earned. Mr. Long, of Obio, offered an amendment, to come in after tbe first resolution, namely, the first Kentucky resolution of 179T, dratted by Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Long submitted that row, of all other times, this resolution affirm ing State rights ought to be re-adopted and re affirmed. The President, nnder the rnles, declared the resolutions must be submitted to the Commit tee on Resolutions. Mr. Cox, of Ohio, moved the previous flues. tion. Mr. Long hoped bis colleague would with draw his motion, as he desired to move an imeudment that would place this convention in a position lavoring peace beyond the mis takes of any equivocal language. He could aot go tor any resolutions that may be con strued either way by men of different views in the convention. Mr. Cox insisted upon his motion, and the previous question being ordered the resolu tions were adopted, with but few dissenting voices. It was then moved that the convention pro ceed to the nomination of a candidate for President. Mr. John P. Stockton, of New Jersey, on behalf of the delegation of that State, nomi nated General George B. McClellan. Mr. S s. Cox, of Ohio, in behalf of a portion 3f the Ohio delegation, seconded the nomina tion, ir . Mr. Saulsbnry. of Delaware, nominated Gov jrnor Powell, of Kentucky. Mr. Powell returned his thanks to the gen. tleman, but be firmly believed the crisis de manded the candidate of the party should come from a non-elavebolding State. Believing so, be begged tbe gentleman and hi? colleague from tbe gallant State of Delaware to withdraw his asme. Mr. Stewart, in behslf ef the Ohio delega, lion, nominated Thomas H. Se. m-onr. Mr. Wiekliffe, on behalf of a portion of the jelegation from Kentucky, nominated Frank lin Pierce. Mr. B. Q. HarriF, ef Maryland, seconded the nomination of Thomas H. Seymour, and pro ceeded to eulogize hie party services and abili ties. Mr. Harne continued as follows: One man named here to-day is a tyrant? [cheers and hisses]?He who first initiated the policy by -which our rights and liberties were stricken down-, that man Is George B. Model lai [Confusion.] Maryland, which has suf fered so much at the hand of that man, will not submit to hie nomination in silence. His of fences shall be made known. This convention is a jnry appointed by the people to pass upon the merits of public men whose names may be presented for the support of the great Demo cratic party. General McClellan, 1 repeat, is a tyrant [Great confusion ] He stood here to in? dlcatebim?[A delegate? ?? call him to order." The President said he hoped there was no man present who would deny the right of free speech; certainly no Democrat will At the same time he hoped no delegate wonld feel called upon to pursue a conree of remarks so offensive as to interfere with the harmony or the con Tenti on. Mr. Harris read McClellan's order of arrest against the Maryland Legislature, and pro ceeded to comment Upon the same, but the con fusion was so. great that the speaker could not he heard, except to say all the charges of usur pation and tyranny that can be brought against Lincoln and Butler he can make and substan tiate aprin;Ft McClellan. [Hisses, cheers, and cries of "Vote for Jeff. Davis!"] The President wished the convention wonld eome to order; there is n? attack made here, he said, bnt what can he made elsewhere, and the gentleman against whom these charges are being made desires they shall be made now and here, so that he can meet and explain them. These interruptions do injustice to ourselves, to the speaker, and to the distinguished gentleman against whom they are made. Let the gentle man from Maryland baye a full hearing, and afterwards hear the other side from gentlemen who are ready and able to make a full expla nation. Mr. Harris proceeded to say that McClellan was an assassin of State rights, a nsnrper of liberties, and, if nominated, he wonld be beaten everywhere, a? he was at Antietam. He added, he could not go home and ask the members of that Legislature to vote for such a man. He would not himself vote for him. [Hisses.] Mr. Carrigan, of Penn., raised to a point of order, that the gentleman having said he wonld not vote for McClellan if nominated, he had no right to take part in the proceedings of the convention. The President decided the poin t of order well tflken, and, amid the wildest confusion, Mr. Harris retired from the stand. Mr. Carrigan said that for many years the relations between that gentleman and himself had been of a most intimate and friendly char acter; but, in view ot the absolute necessity for the preservation of the morale of the Con vention, he felt bound to raise the point of order. He now moved that he be allowed to proceed in order. General Morgan, of Ohio, as a fellow-soldier of McClellan, could not remain silent when the name and fame of that distinguished Gene, ral wer? so shamefully impugned. Thecharges were untrue. The Maryland Legislature was In session at Annapolis. Gen. Joe Johnston, of the rebel army, was at Annapolis. A con spiracy was formed, and certain members of the Legislature were the conspirators. Thoy intended that the State shonld secede, and an ordiKance of secession was framed. Maryland wae to beinvaded, overwhelmed by the enemy, and taken ont of the Union. What did Gen. McClellan do I He simply took the best pre caution in his power to thwart the treasonable scheme; and, had he not done so, he wonld have been euilty of the vilest treason. The man who says Gen. McClellan is a tyrant does not know him. A thorough soldier, with the gentleness of a woman, and the courage of a lion, no braver, no more amiable, and kind, generous hearted gentleman exists on the tace of the earth; and no greater libel was ever uttered than when snch aman is called a trai tor. [Applause.] Mr. Eaton, ?? Connecticut, passed a high eulogy upon Thomas H. Seymour, bnt added his name was med here without his wish and without the request of the Connecticut delega tion. Mr. Harris, of Maryland, explained that what he said was that he could not go bet?re the people of Maryland and ask them or the members of the Legislature to vote for Mc Clellan. He did not say be would not vote for him, but felt himself bound to vote for the candidate of the convention. The name of Governor Powell was then withdrawn. Mr. w ickliffe withdrew the name of Frank lin Pierce. Mr. Jones, of Maryland, regretted that the gentleman who took a stand in defence of McClellan assumed tb?i ground that he was justified because of the collusion between the members of the Legislature and any rebel gen eral or army. Had be put it upon the ground that *ie acted upon credible evidence, he might have re mained silent, but he could not permit the Le gislature to remain under snch a falsehood. Gen. Morgan explained that he intended to say that McClellan acted upon testimony re garded as credible. Mr. Jones said, so far from being credible, It has been pronounced by the victims of that action an utter falsehood. The Legislature had no power to pass an or dinance of secession. These arrests demanded immediate trial, even by a drum-head court martial; bnt instead of giving that which the law guarantees to the poorest citizen, they were told they could have their liberty by gir? ing their parole. Some, worn ont' by the latiguee of imprisonment, did finally give their parole; bnt others preferred to yield their Uvee rather than submit to the humiliating test that was required of them. They suffered long, and yet to this day they knew not their ac cusers. Still, he believed McClellan was too much of a gentleman and Christian to act as he did, except upon what he deemed credible evidence. Mr. Holman, of New Jersey, moved that the debate on the candidates tie closed, and also moved the previous question. Mr. McNeil, of Illinois, on behalf of a por tion of the Illinois delegation, and, as he be lieved, of a majority of the delegates of the great Northwest, nominated Horatio Seymour. [Prolonged cheers.] The President said the. motion was out of oroer. Motions to adjourn were made, bat declared out ot order Mr. Long, of Ohio, took the stand in opposi tion to McClellan. He said Lincoln had been gniltv of interfering with the freedom of speech, the freedom of elections, and of arbitrary ar rests. He continued : In your r?solutions you have arraigned him before the people of the country for these tyrannies and usurpations; and yet yon propose to nominate a man who has gone even tanner than Lincoln in perpe trating similar tyrannical measures upon the sacred privileges and rights of the people. McClellan is guilty of the arrest of the Legisla ture of a sovereign State. He has suspended the writ of habeas corpus, and helped toenforoe an odious emancipation proclamation of Lin coln; the willing instrument of a corrupt and tv rannical Administration, aiding, while pos sessing military power, ail Its efforts to strip American freemen of their dearest liberties. Will yon so far stultify yourselves as to make him the standard-bearer of the Democracy ? With all his heart he noped not. He had never done otherwise, and as between Lincoln and Fr* mont, and any man calling himself even half Democrat, he wonld have a choice, and would be lound voting with bis friends; but be begged the Convention not to nominate McClel lan. Almost any other man who claims to be a Democrat wonld satisfy him, aud would sat isfy the Northwest. Weak as is your platform in many respects, we will stand up and do ail in cur power to maintain it; bnt, in God's name, do not add to its weakness by placing such a man in nomination. Mr. Carrigan, of Pennsylvania, foUowed in answer to Harris, and quoted from McClel lan's letters to Burnside, to Halleck, and to Buril, when these gentlemen were ander him, to show he invariably admonished them that the only objectol the war was to preserve the Integrity of the Union and the majesty of the jaws, and that he invariably cautioned them 10 strictly gnard against any infringement upon ffhe rights of property and person. [Great ap. ? laose.] 1 The last two speakers were constantly inter rupted by motions to adjourn. Objections to adjournment were wade in all quarters, bat as it was rapidly growing dark, and the gas hot having been introduced into the wigwam, the opponents of adjournment, who were ev idently strongest, had to concede the point, and the Convention adjourned till to-morrow. The McC lei lam tee say the debate did their candidate no harm, and are sanguine of success to-morrow. Another Aeceuat-The Row. CHICA??, August 30.?When Hams of Mary li .' ' ' <? s?n land, waa making towards bla seat, after beine .'erlared art of order because of hi? remarti tbat if McClel?en was nominated he would not support him, a person, not a delegate, although sitting within the circle, said to him: "Yon onght to be turned out of tbe convention, you C?d traitor!" whereupon Harris turned round and knocked him out of his chair. Tbie Incident contributed much to tbe gene ral confusion which prevailed for eeveral minutes. To-night Harris and Long, and those wbosvtnpatbize with them, are making stren nons efforts to secure a one-third vote against McOlellan. Tbe sanguine, conciliatory, and pacific course pursued by Mr. Guthrla, on the committee on resolutions, seems to meet with wsrm approval from the MeOIellanite*, and te nlght be towers up a strong candidate for Vice President _ FROM THE SOUTHWEST.

[Correspondence of tbe Baltimore American.} Headquarters Middle Militabv in vis. tow, August 30.?The position of our army since my letter yestenlay remains unchanged. There was a very spirited fight yesterday at Smithfield, or, as it is sometimes called, Mid dles ay: about seven miles from Charlestown, which proved that the enemy bad not yet re treated up the valley. General Custar's"brigade of cavalry, with Capt. Hanson's battery of artillery, were moved across the Opequan about a 'mile neyond Smltbfield. for the purpose of making a recon? noisance toward Bunker Hill. Tbey had pro ceeded about a mile when they came on tbe enemy's skirmish line. A portion of General Custar's command were dismounted and tent in to engage them. The skirmish lasted until eleven o'clock, when Custar was obliged to re tire across the Opeqnan, where be was rein forced by DeCeenola's and Gibbs' brigades of cavalry, when skirmishing was renewed with increased vigor. Tbe enemy nowsenttwo brigades of infantry across the Opequan, with a view ot outflank ing us and cutting off our retreat on Smith field. In this they were foiled. Gen. Merritt, discovering tbeir intention, retired on Smith field before they could aceompli3h their de signs. Heavy skirmishing was kept up all tbe time we were retreating, and we inflicted con siderable loss on tbe enemy, as our men took advantage of every commanding position, and from behind every cover, to pick onT their ad vancing line. In tbe meantime. Gen. Sheridan had ordered, Rickett's division of Infantry, of the 6th cor- v to proc ed toward Smithfield and snppo- , Sr* cavalry. The infantry reached a poi' ..'?Li?ii two miles this side of Smithfield atr ftli, "^? m., when tbey formed a junction "xuh tr,? ei?
