'thin was one of the most splendid alfairs that has ever been seen in this city, and was never exceeded in this country, except by the great Convention at Richmond, Virginia, in 1KI0. The procession of Whig Delegates was mst two hours passing a particular point. So you may 1 judge of its length. Although the delegates were J ordered to meet at certain parts of the city to form 1 into line as early as 7 o'clock this morning, yet it , was past 12 o'clock before they came on the ground ' at Canton?the race course. Here a most commodious and elegant stage was | erected for the speakers, whig Mrmbirt of Con- \ grot, icc. Evety possible accommodation was afforded the reporters to-day?but not yesterday. The procession was of the most imposing character?probably 12,000 persons were in it. In connection with this, I send you the diagram of the streets in this city, in which the various pro- ' cessions formed this morning. Baltimore street, i down which the procession marched as it was 1 formed, was ornamented by a large triumphal arch | of the most splendid character, with the names of all the States festooned over and around it. All down Baltimore street, almost every house was ornamented with Hags and devices of all kinds. The windows were taken out, and each opening was crowded with beautiful female heads and forms. Words can't describe the coup d'ci ?the loveliness that Baltimore etreet exhibited this day I counted over 30,000 handsome women at windows and doorways along the line of procession. The procession moved ofl'at 10 o'clock precisely from Eutaw street, close by the Futaw House. As soon as the procession started,three guns were fired as a signal. The procession then moved down Baltimore street to Caroline street?down Caroline to Gough street?down Gough to Bond street? down Bond to Bank street?dowc Bank to Market street?along Market street to Fleet street, and along Fleet street to the Canton llace Ground; where the Convention was organized. ? Nothing could exceed the imposing character? the beauty?the sublimity of this spectacle as the procession came on that lovely piece of ground and i'nrmed nround the stand, excent the Virginia Con vention, where ItOOO lovely women were en the ground, to heighten in every sense the beauty and sublimity of the spectacle. The Prize Banner on its carriage drawn by six milk white horses excited universal admiration and applause. The procession reached the ground at a little after 12 o'clock, where there must have been 50,000 people present. It was a sublime sight. All was order, narmony and regularity. The wagons containing the Blacksmiths and weavers at work.&c. were loudly cheered ; so was a live Coon on an ash bough, carried by Officer Smith, of Philadelphia. lie was the K. K.?the Koon Karrier. Mr. Webster came on to the platlorm a little before 12 o'clock, and was most warmly hailed.? Archer. Morehead, Crittenden, Berrien, and several U. 8. Senators were there. Tom Ewing, the salt boiler, Ned Stanley, of N. C., Potts, of Va., Gov. Metcalfe, of Kentucky, and hundreds of distinguished men were there ; about lorty whig members of the present Congress were there ; E. J. Morris, Clingman, Barringer, Peyton, Ilardin, Newton, Summers, Cranston, Wright, &c. The Convention was called to order by Mr. Reverdy Johnson, who introduced the Rev. Mr. Bascombe, who delivered a very eloquent extempore prayer. Mr. Yates Wai.sh then came to the front of the stand and said?Countrymen, it is niy duty to call the Convention to order, and I nominate for President on this occasion, John M. Ci-ayton, of Delaware. This was received with loud cheers. The Vice Presidents and Secretaries were then nominated, as follows:? I'rksidickt, JOHN M. CLAVTON of Delaware. Maine K. P.

I Tnaiah V Rirtl nf thiw #Mtv_ hnH rnntriveH a mndc ol making large wrought iron gum, which has received the approbation of l'ant. Stockton, and a gun of the sire of the " Peace Maker' is to 1m Immediately constructed at the iron worka of Bird k Weld. At present wo can only itate that the procea* will bo commenced by placing together, in the larm of a cylinder, a number of wrought iron stave* of the whole pmpoied length of the gun, and of proper breadth, und four or nix inches In thickness. Theae will be held together by wrought iron hoops, lying I clone together, the wnole length of the atavea, and welded upon them Upon thia row of hoona another of larger diameter will be laid, and theae welded upon the former , and additional row* will bo put on and welded to thoac previously on, until the desired thicknes* shall ho obtained. The rim of the hoops will be about six inches wide, and they will be so laid that the middle of the rims in ono row ol hoops will cover the Joints between those of the next smaller row. The sidei of the hoops will be carefully turned smooth, before they are laid on. The lima ol the hoops will be thicker at the ends than in the middle, so that when, after being put on in a heated state, the hoops cool and contract, they will bind those under them, not only upon the staves, but to each other and thus present a resistance in hoth directions to the explosive force of tho powder. The proposed advantage of this mode of construction is, that the welding ot small pieces of iran, such as of one row of hoops upon the surface of the others, can he done perfectly ; while it is scarcely possible to weld large masses perfectly, or without destroying the strength of the iron. - Trtnhm Gitzritr North ('akoi.ina Silver.?We Imd the pleasure yesterday of viewing a large mass of silver, with a slight | admixture of gold, weighing three hundred ounces, the produce of amine in Davidson county, N. which is now being successfully worked.

Knowing you only as the editor ol the first newspaper in the United States, I lake the liberty to pen you u few lines, to let you know the state of utliiirs in Porto Kico. In looking over the columns of your paper, 1 find that politics in the United States carry a great sway; thank Uod we are not troubled with them here! The season in this part of the world Iihs been delightful and uncommonly gay?balls succeed balls, dinner parties are plenty, promenades and " rides out, or drives," are very fashionable. It is considered quite a la monde to see a fop lounging on n bench in the promenade, quizzing the young ladies as they pass bv. We had a great turnout on the arrival of the recognize!ion of Queen Isabella II. The troops were all drawn out on the Otuiipo del Mors; and for three days carried on an assortment of tactics?retreating, tiring, en''.imping, and all kinds of warlike mnnumvteg. During this time the city was most splendidly illuminated. The Captain tlenerul gave two elegant balls a luetnjuctte; they were attended with a great deal of ceremony. Everything wound up with Viva Isabel Stgunda. Indeed, the whole affair came ot! most brilliantly. For the last week we have had Mann's Olympic Circus here. He had an excellent company, und drew good houses. Hut, in midst of all our pleasures, we ure entirely without an Opera. It was reported that we were to have the company front Havana ; but I believe it is without foundation. However, the neonlc entertain hopes of Die Dull and Vieux Temps; hut I am inclined to think it is all slutm. The only tiling like an Opera is the Ilttrita ; hut that is not attended hv many fashionable persons?they never change?it's the same old thing over ngaiu. The people wuntsomething new und grand ; they have a good theatre, handsome and commodious, and all that's wanting is a company?and that they must have. I suppose, you have heard of the death of Mr. Lockneart; tie came here with one huudred and sixty thousand hard dollars cash, and was swindled out of it by a pack of umigot, thus called in Spanish. We have had a great deal of rain lately, and at the present moment it comes down like hail. We are expecting momently a new captain-general; the one in office now belongs to Espartero's party, and this is the reason he will have to retire. [ suppose there will be great times when the new one arrives. The people are waiting unxiously for him?anything new for the Spaniards. Business in this city is slack at present; there is u nuinher of American vessels laving in hnrhor, waiting cargoes The merchants here have a byword?"

This is the second time I have been stopped writing to you by an awful catastrophe, the particulars of which 1 will relate.

At ten minute: lore !), a rolling noise was heard, something like that of thunder? the earth shook, tho houses trembled, and every body ran and prostrated themselves in the middle of the street to pray. It was an awful s|iectacle ; the shock lasted about fifteen seconds. All the houses are injured more or less, and some so much so, that it is a risk of life to live in them. Two oi three were thrown to the ground and the rest terribly shattered. It is pronounced by the "oldest inhabitants" as being the severest shock ever felt on the island of 1'. It. We are constantly having slight shocks ; hut there is one crash momently expected, and every one is preparing for it. A great many persons are moving on the Marina, and more are still going thither. The vessels are crowded with men, women, and children, and will he for a few days. The hells ringing every half hour for prayers. About eight o'clock there was a procession through the streets, and tc ileum in the church of St. Francisco, for the narrow escape of so many thousands; for it the shock had lasted two seconds longer, tlie whole city would have been in ruins. Tim steamer has just arrived, and states that it was felt in St. Thomas m few minutes alter nine, thus making it run from west to east; no doubt there hns been great damage done in St. Uonungo and Cuba, as it came on with a vengeance, if f may so term it.
