The Approacltlt g llrmoentlc Convention In Baltimore on the 87th of Mmy. The Whig Convention having disposed ol the whig nominato-ris at Baltimore during the present week, and placed their men beloTe the country, every eve anil everv mind is now turned towards the approaching Convention of the democracy, which is to he held in Baltimore on the 27th of the present month. The questions generally asked amongst the politicians are?" Will Mr. Van Buren be nominated!"?"Will Mr Van Buren withdraw t"?" Can he be elected if nominuted 1" ?" How is it possible that the democracy can triumph with such dissensions in their ranks 1"? " Will they agree u/ion a third titan ?"?" Who will he be " Will it be Cuss, or Stewart V? " What chance has Mr. Tyler!"?" In what position is the administration !"?" Where is the Tyler Convention to end !" All these questions are more or less interesting and important, and will exercise great influence upon the progress of events during the summer, up to the election in November. Let us look at them in a culm and tranquil manner. The Convention?that is, the regular Convention 1 called " democratic," which is to meet at Balti- j more on the 27th of this month, originated in a re- ( solution passed by the former Convention, held < there in 1840, whose nomination of Mr. Van Buren ] was so signally defeated in the overwhelming tri- , umph of General Harrison. Some two years ago, ! a number of the States, and leading politicians, went to work and re-organized this Convention lor ^ovrmoer m last year; oui, in consequence 01 violent opposition, chielly from the friends of Mr. Calhoun, and also of some of the other candidates, it was postponed till the present month. From the very inception, however, of thisConvention, a violent feud has existed between the friends of Mr. Calhoun in the South and West, and those of Mr. Van Buren in the Northern und Eastern States. They were rivals before the great democratic party : but this rivalry they had political tact enough to indicate only by technical quarrels, telutive to the construction of the Convention and the period of its meeting. At first the friends of Mr. Calhoun made a great deal of talk about the mode of constructing the Convention, and offered to abide by its decision if organized according to their wishes; but subsequent events discovered clearly enough that they cared far less about the principle supposed to be involved in the quarrel about the organization of the Convention, than they did about the nomition of Mr. Calhoun in any contingency. It is now seen that the little flame orginally kindled between these two distinguished men. hus increased to a great conflagration, threatening the very existence of the democratic party as a united body. It is believed still that Mr. Van Buren is the most generally popular candidate with the Convention that is to be held, and that if theie were not certain insuperable objections to him, he would be certain of receiving the nomination, and of standing another chance of being re-elected President. But the controversy within the bosom of the party has increased to such an extent, as seriously to involve its fate and destiny, unless conciliatory measures be adopted at the approaching nmeling. During the last few months, there has certainly been developed a great many elements, calculated to weaken the prospects of Mr. Van Buren's election, if he should he nominated. The cry is raised that his nomination will indicate merely a design of restoring the old ollice-holders, defaulters, and all that clique of hack politicians which disgraced Ins administration, and was the fag end of tin Jackson party. With die young democracy of the present day, this constitutes a most serious objection to Mr. Van Buren. His position again on the Texas question, although it has been adopted arid promulgated by the Globe and that section of the democratic party, is certainly the unpopular side. Another objection is, that Mr. Van Buren is destitute of any personal recommendations in the way of historical reminiscences, or any of those associations with the fortunes and destiny of his country, which awaken in the masses such enthusiastic regard and esteem, as are always offered to the heroic and brave man. The great fact that his ele vation to the Presidency was the result of his adventitious connection with General Jackson?thai but for the mantle of that great man, he never could have reached beyond a Senator of the United States, or at the most some foreign mission, requiring no great talent, is a very popular objection to Martin Van Buren. Another objection is, that the result of the experience of the jteople of this country, has been the tacit und almost universal acquiesence in the maxim, that one term of the Presidency is the dictate of reason and justice, and that nnm .n orhn ..I, lilmulf .. - 1 ...... o. U|> IUI n irmuruuuiior ' re-election, has a chance to obtain the suffrages of the people. Thisobjection will, of course, have full weight against Mr. Van Buren, who has besides ( already had trials enough, and defeats enough, as i well as against Mr. Tyler, who has been made Pre- 1 sident, as it were, by accident; a sort ofcontin- ' gency similar to that by which Mr. Van Buren obtained that elevated office. But above all these objections to Mr. Van Buren, it is urged by the young democracy, and the result of the recent elections indicate its importance, that if he be the sole candidate, there are no chances whatever of carrying him in against the overwhelming popularity of Mr. Clay, produced in a great measure by the 1 defection in the democratic ranks, and the intense , hatred subsisting between the northern and south- I em sections of that party. , These considerations, connected with the con- < tingency of Mr. Van Buren's nomination, are beginning to exercise great influence on the minds ol i his friends. And, in this position of utfairs, the ' question very naturally arises, "If Mr. Van Buren i should withdraw, either peaceably or by force, who f will the democracy hit upon with a chance of con- 1 tending successfully for the prize of empire against ? Mr. Clay and his adherents!" We have heard only 1 two names as suitable and likely t? he presented c in this emergency. Mr. Calhoun has, it appears, 1 himself withdrawn from the contest. Mr. Tyler 1 still persists in it, but his chances are almost as good 1 as those of John Jones. So, then, the only remain- \ ing names that can he brought before thp Conven- ' tion, with any probability of success, are those of ] < General Cuss, of Michigan, and Commodore ftewart, of Pennsylvania, ft may be expected that the whole force of the administration, as now orgunganized, will endeavor to bring forward the name of Mr. Tyler; and the shadow of a Convention which is called for the same day in Baltimore, may endeavor to make a little fuss on that point. But that we regard as a farce front beginning to end, and, therefore, we believe, that the young and the old(democracv? the whole elements of the democracy?the bulk and mass of that parly, will have to choose between Oencrel Cass, of Michigan, and i oinmotiore Stewart, ot Fennaylvania?provided 11 they come to the conclusion, as many believe they " will, that Mr Van Ruren ih out of the ijueatiou p Such being the candid view that we take of the position of tilings at thin moment, it will be per- ? ceived that the approaching Convention at Haiti- n more will exercise, e. mighty bearing on the result n of the next Presidential election; and that the eyes, not only of the democracy, hut of the wings also, N will be directed to its proceedings and results Willi 11 the keenest interest . No one can doubt at all that only on the adoption ol some wise conciliatory course of policy at thin Convention, will depend the " energy and force ot the democratic party at the polls; for, if the present dissensions continue and n the breaches be widened, there can he no doubt tint the chances of Mr (May will be increased ten-11 fold, and that he will most likely he the next I'resi(lent I' MrlhudlK Kplwopai Conference. Vesterday morning the usnil reading of the?rolI of members was dispensed with as not requisite. Divine service was performed. Bishop Andrew took the Presidential chair, and called the body to order. The Secretary read the minutes of yesterday's meeting, to which some amendments of secondary importance, were suggested, and adopted.? One was, that the names of the delegates front the diflcrent Conferences in Canada should he specified in the iiiimilfu The Chairman of the committee appointed to make arrangements for preaching and divine service, pointed out what lie considered to be an error in tlie regulation of the Conference?the organizing that committee?the word should be for the (ipj)ointment of preachers instead of superintending, as at present. The alteration was adopted. The President arose to make a few observations before the proceedings went further. He thought it would he well to observe that, as strangers were coming in and out, it would be advisable for members to sit within the bar, as described yesterday morning?namely, within the space intervening between the pulpit and the third column from it ; and for the purpose of order, he would observe, that none but members and officers of the conference should be admissable within the bar, unless invited to take a seat by the conference. Unless they were precise and methodical in their manner of doing business, they would get into confusion. lie observed in the course of yesterday's proceedings, that they were sometimes subject to confusion, owing principally to the fact that, as soon as a motion was made, some brother got up to go to work directly upon it. Now, when a resolution was put from the chair, it was time enough to act upon it. This might be the effect of zeal, which was very good in its place ; but be thought it sometimes happened that a little delay and deliberation rather improved speeches than otherwise. There was still one remark he would make, and hinted it would be well received, as it was intended for the good?knowing they were disposed to do the thing good hurnoredly and comfortably. He recommended to every member, when they arose to speak, to east their eyes around and see if there was any other up to address the cliair;that would prevent naif a dozen of speaking at once. He would be happy to hear each in his turn, but among so many it was difficult to decide ; and he also thought that no speaker should be heard unless he was on his feet, and he hoped that these remarks would not only be taken in good part, but acted upon by tlieni. ltev. Mr Kini-av moved that the book ugents, Messrs. O. Lane, F. Waugh, and Lanstead, be invited, to take seats, and to speak on all subjects connected with the book concern. Adopted. The same motion was put and carried in favor of Messrs. I'atton and some others, as admissable to speak on all missionary topics. Mr. Bancs said that he understood some fresh delegates bad arrived since yesterday, and thought they should at once present themselves. The Pit sident concurred, and two delegates, each from Louisiana and Georgia, complied. On the motion of Rev Mr. Smith, the Rev. Messrs. Bond and Coles were invited to take seats within the bar. The Rev. Mr. Lucky moved that the Rev. Kgerton Uyerson, and the other delegates from Canada, beinvitedto take seats within the bar of the conference. Bishop Socle said that the motion was unnecessary, and he would be sorry it would pass. The brethren named w ere recognised as delegates from the Canada church, and by that recognition were entitled to take $eats as members of the conference. Mr. Lucky was perfectly satisfied with the|Bishop's explanation. The President then called for the reports of commit 'ees. Dr. Bands, ns chairman, handed in the report of the nook committee, which was read, ft bore testimony to the zeal and energy of their book agents?the gratifying growth of a taste for reading throughout the members of the church?the ample supply of means for the gratification of the taste, and the stale of the finances of this department. This was in a flourishing condition, a large surpltis?remaining unappropriated. The report also spoke of the laudable and increasing disposition of the young preachers to study theology and other sciences. It was referred to the committee on the book concern. The Thesidknt next called for the presentation of memorials and petitions to Conference. A memorial was then presented from the Providence Annual Conference on the subject ol slavery. The President said that there was a motion before the house that it be read, and he would therefore request the Secretary to proceed with its perusal. The Secretary accordingly proceeded to do so, but was interrupted by a member who rose to state that he considered it n bad precedent to read these long papers to the body, and he therefore moved that it be left on the table. (Much excitement.) Several members now got up to address the house, and the President had no small trouble to determine the right claimant for priority One moved that it should be read ; another hoped that it would he referred to the committee ; a third would be sorry to see any memorial from an Annual Conference laid upon the table ; whilst another member recommended that it should be read, as the first paper of that kind before them, and, as such, calculated to convey to the Conference a pretty fair summary of the substance of such documents ; this argument seemed to be well received, and the gentleman withdrew his motion for leaving it on the table, and it was read forthwith. (The memorial took a strong and determined stand against slavery?repudiated it as essentially an heathen institution, ami antagonistic to Christianity. It took a historical as well as scriptural review of the subject? reverted to the fact ol Russia's gradual emancipation contempora' neously with the progress of civilization, and the retributive justice of (ion on Poland, who is now a slave horself, for favoring the abominable system. It declared that the institution of slavery was subverting the welfare of this country?that their article on colored testimony was mast disastrous to the north, while it did the south no goo.l They justly held the people of the south responsible for the crime of slavery, notwithstanding their stereotype pies that it is approved hy Jaw. Not one-quarter of the white population of slave States were slave-holders, and rhey hao the power, therefore, to change the law ) Dr. B.ivns moved that this memorial he referred to a special committee.composed ofone member from eaeli an nual conference, to be called the committee on slavery Dr. Csri.ns arose and pronounced the motion unfortunate He declared that he f it mortified that there could be found -in annual conference capable ol memorializing the general conference on slavery, as if they were all pro-slavery men?advocates of the system for the system's sake?for the sake of the dollars or the wealth, or such motives, lie heard it read with pain, as a Methodist preacher ; Hnd in opposing the motion he would say that it was such us should not be referred to a committee at ..ii /l- :? . \ ?i - .? mi. v^a^i^ui^i)1'/ ne was "ware iiiiiereiioes ui opinion existed on the propriety of introducing discussions on thin topic here, nnd tie thought they had unwittingly ad miniatured to those differences by raising the discussion , in slavery from year to year, from conference to conference, and il they continued to act as il they were competent to legislate in the abstract on slavery, it would be | \ source oi endless trouble. He wished to see no more 1 slavery committees appointed? they had never done any i joad, and they never would do any?he should like to see 1 ihe memorial lelton the table. 1 Or. Wijuss said, that the fact of that memorial being 1 from a Methodist Conference, entitled it to respect. 1 While he regretted with Dr. Caper's that the subject should cause a marked difference of opinion there, he felt 1 that it was a matter which occupied so mnch attention 1 and Interest that it cannot be touched upon in that conference ; and the worst thing for them to do was, to confine their enquiries as to the liest way of doing it with the least possible excitement, lie thought that a refusal to read the memorial would produce excitement. When referred to a committee thpy could report upon it or not, just a* they thought proper; and would he was sure on iwer some things in that memorial which did not meet general approval. The public mind was settling down lpon the matter, and he thought the best way was to reer it to a committee at once, as the best way to avoid ex:itement. .Mr. Ric? made a few remarks, when Dr. t in 11* ngain got up to explain. He had no interest 1 n the matter of a personal kind. He was no candidate i or office, more than any other member ol that body, but 1 is to treating it with respect as coming from an annual '(inference, he would wish to do so ; but if offence come i rom a brother, were they to wink lit it. An annual con- 1 erence should know lietter than misconceive the views 1 ind wishes of Conference on slnvery. and We thought that < ill the respect the memorial deserved from him was hi* ! iest how and a motion that it bo left on the table. t The President put the motion amidst considerable rx- 1 item cut, and, in answer to a question, said he thought I hat a debate on such a motion was not in order. I Mr. K.sni.v thought the motion was misapprehended.? 1 I'lie motion to lay it on the table was not for ever ; hut he honght if tho.y were to have discusrions of this kind on 1 very memorial,'they would never he done. He thought he best way would be to receive all memorials without I ippointing eornmittees at present. Three years ago he 1 moved lar a committee on slavery, and he was asked why > ' did not do the same now. He said that when he did 1 move for a committee four years ago, it was to dispose of documents and memorials then presented , that motion 1 was not in force now , lor until this was brought forward, I 'h're was no occasion for such a step. Let them see w hat 1 they hn.l to do, anreceive all the papers on the matter 1 imioro imposing i)| them. He wm ' no candidate for I office.

It ended in nothing at ail, just whet the members began to perceive that such must be the ter inination. The business wss ut last resumed by the PreaKent call ing lor the other memorials, addressed to Conlerence. i great Biimlier agtii st slavery, were then handed in fion the ProviJence Maine, New Hampshire, Black River Pittsburg.

They includei tliu memorial of W. J. Waller of the Virginia < onfcrenci to the General Conference, nraj ing some expression o opinion on Certain ijueations 01 doctrine and law, andmuk ing some complaints against the manner in which the edi toi of the Richmond Christian Advocate conducted tha publication. This announcement seemed to cause a good deal of inte rest, and was hardly made until some half dozen ol mo tions were made upon the matter. eThe ratsiDKNT, in answer to n question ol Mr. Karly sael that the number of the documents was two. and tha il lie had known by whom they were introduced, hi would have taken other steps Mr Ksiu.v said that although there were four delegate from tha Virginia conference, they knew nothing of them und their object was to know how they ciime tliero Hi iiicugmtnai wnni related to tn? editor should go to tHi committee on "the book concern:" what relate* to doc trine* was a new subject. As to what relate* to the law* it should not be entertained What the Bishop asks > 01 to do, all legislative bodies havo refused to do from tim< immemorial. lie asks you to explain your own laws. I was for a commit re to decide upon the part*, hut as to tin doctrinal part, there was 110 provision made. Its Intro duction would convey the impression that tho Methodis docttines were not yet settled Now, his impression was that these doctrines were settled expressly, and he did no want to sue them again settled by implication. Dishop Sot'i s explained and conveyed the views of thi body, of ltichard Watson and John AV'esley on Infani Baptism, which was the doctrinal point proposed in tin memorial, declaring them to he standard authorities among Methodists. Mr. Stum, as the person who left them on the table ol the President, explained how he became possessed ol them. They were given to him in Richmonil.on his way to the conference, and as they were respectable looking tiaper*. given by a respectable looking member of theii body, be could not reiuse them, lie knew nothing of the nature of their contents, but, ot course, had a suspicion, and thought the best way was to quietly hand them tc the President. Or. lh\UM evltressml his Btlrnriai, that au (lm,? u'nr? f/.n. delegate* from Virginia they should come without their knowledge. He wondered why Dr. Waller would nol ask soma of them to do it. Mr. Wrnuws objected to its (going to any committee. II every individual,on whose mind difficulties existed, were at liberty to appeal to conference to have them relieved, on points of doctrine, there would bo no end to it. Bishop Socle explained the nature of the documents. The motion to lay them on the table was lost. That referring them to a committee was put and carried. In a few minutes several members arose and seemed unanimous in nothing but that the decision just come to was unwise and premature. Several motions were made to reconsider the whole subject. A discussion ensued, in which the Rev. Messrs. Bangs Early. Slicer, Wynans, Cartwright, Smith, Finlay, Peck, Gr iffiths. Dr. Lee, the accused editor of the Richd. Advo rate, and many others took a part. This lasted out the remainder of the session. It principally turned on the prudence of entertaining the memorial of an individual who had already been heard on the matter by the Virgl nia Conference, and whether it would he wise to set a pre, cedent far explaining the doctrines and laws of Methodism. There was a great deal of talk expended, according to the admission of Mr. Kinloy, who being on his leg? half a dozen times to speak, said, that he "had some steam to let off, and would require fifteen minutes, il they were determined on talking it out." The matter was at last arranged by referring so much ol the memorial as related to thu Committee on the " Book Concern," and so much as related to the rules, to the Committee on Revision ; hut what became oi the doctrinal part, we could not determine. Mr. Sandforo, and several others, made long speeches to prove that they had no discretion to use in an enquiry as to doctrine. Methodism had prospered well without such enquiry and it was too late in the day to do so. Before Mr Sandforil had finished, several members were on their feet to speak They in one thing succeeded, and that was to prevent Mr. 8. from finishing. One o'clock had nearly arrived, and several motions were made fa lengthen tne time ol session ; that for the purpose of hearing out Mr Handlord, which was offered in a half jocular manner.prevailed. Mr. Sandford, however, did not finish before the time was up. and ho seemed to he a good deal disapjieintcd, when the Conference adjourned till to-morrow. Sunday School Anniversary. Tl,. ,.r .u? v.... rr?I. XHC aiuuyciooi/ UI MIC Aicn xi'lJY v>uy vcuuunv School Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church was held in the M. E. Church, Allen street, yes terdayevening. The'tinieappointed was7o'cloek, but a sudden and violent thunder storm, accompanied with rain, interfered to delay the meeting until an hour later. The attendance, however, was very numerous and respectable. Fortunately the weather cleared up in time, and the ladies, ever foremost in a good cause, came forth to sanction, with their presence, the cause of Sabbath Schools, and cheer the efforts of those who ar< engaged in this truly useful labor. The laige church could not have held mnnj more, and the presence of the Conference, now convened in this city, contributed u great number of ministers, who assembled on the platform 01 took their places in the body of the church Bishop Waugli took tiie Chair, and Messrs. Win Truslow and Walter Heeler acted us Secretaries. The Kev. Mr. Clark conducted the preliminary religious service*. The Secretary read the annual report o: the Association, whicli was listened to with grant ullen tion. It laid before the meeting a lucid account of th? present state an-1 Itourishiug prospect* of the came. They had no less in the city than nearly 7000 scholars, and an increase during the year of 969. Their teachers and otti cers amounted to 900; and the hooks in the librarie, amounted to 11,"00 volumes, which not only were a bene fit to the scholars, tint their parents, who were sure, in many cases, to send their children to school for the purpose of securing the use of their hooks. The Rejiort pre sented a highly llatteiing view of the juvenile associations connected with their body, and told some graphic anecdotes in illustration of their v.eal-one striking evidence of which was found in their having raised, during the past year, $71)0. After the rending of the report, the chairman introduced the Rev. Mr. Darbin, who uddressed the assembly on the Sabbath School cause, lie adverted in a feeling manner to loimerand warmly cherish*d connection with the verychurch they were then assembled in?for in it he had made his first speech in fnroi of ttabhuth Schools He pointed out the characteristics of the age in which they lived, the most prominent of which, the future historian would designate ns activity That was thelending feature in the social, )<olitical, and commercial worm 01 me 1.1111 century ; nut above all was it observable in the Church of Go<l.

Their section of the church were not altogether so active as it might be. He wished to dwell for a little or the question, what was tho Sunday Sctiool cause ? What did it propose I Mr. 1). then entered into the great ad vantages of that method of instruction ; the vividness o youthful impressions on the mind; the tenacity with whicl early scenes were remembered, showed the efficacy ol school instruction. The most that education couli pretend to was to guide the mind in the acquisition o Knowledge : there was no learning from hooks-it must come by experience. This w is a Inw of nature, which Sabbath teaching revered, in the c.ise of the youth who slipped from the counting hou?e laliors of the week to the Hanhath school. He instanced some cases of men of ce lebrity who was indebted to Sabbath school teaching ; particularly Adam Clarke and !)r Morrison, the Chinese scholar and missionary. tinil encouraged teachers not to bo depressed if they did not observe as rapid improve' ment as they desired, for it might be after a lapse of many pears that those vivid impressions would arise as a guide to direct the life of the pupil perhaps reclaim him from evil. Mr. D. was listened'<> with profound attentiondti ringhis long discourse, and made an obvious impression in the assembly. 't'The Rev. Mr. M. Farrix of Tennessee, next addressed the meeting in a most happy manner. His dexterity in [minting out the high position which this city occupied in the Union?the gn at things expected of her?the nd<litional motive for liberality furnished by the necessity ol supporting her dignity before the member* of conference, ssho won Id bear the news east, west, north and south, and talk of the great things done in the Allen street Chapel, were all ably set forth lie raktUatui that in the collection they would even surpass themselves He would not dwell too long on that topic, least in their anxiety to make prompt payment, they should cut short his rpeech.

The , attention of those most interested in the matter ought to be directed to this point before it shall be ; too late. If the mode of conveyance of this mo r ney is not changed,we should not be in the least surprised to hear that the next instalment has found its way into the coffers of the sea rover instead of into the pockets of our merchants. !

We find, in regard to domestic manufactures, the same results that we guve in relation t? our agricultural products. The increase in manufactures is estimated on the most official data within our power to command. It willbe observed that there is not that great difference in prices of manufactures that wn showed to etist in agricultural products. This is caused partly by the steady increase of productions, which cannot be regulated in product* of the soil. The supply of manufactures is governed by the demand. 8o long as prices are remunerating, the manufacturers will turn out supplies. Consequently, we have reason to think that present prices, although tt least thirty-three and n third per cent less than in 1840, arc paying hand some profits, perhaps better profits than those of that period. What can be the cause of this 1 Wool has slightly advanced in price since 1843. Cotton has maintained a fair prices These havo a certain effect, put compmre'priees for these articles fot the present time with those ol former years, and we will see one cause of the reduction in price* of manufactured goods.

We see the quotations for the raw material from which our woollen and cotton manufactures are made, reduced, while the quantity produced is constantly, but gradually increasing. This is the cause of low prices. The currency produces all these results. The tariff has little to do with it. Until w e are convinced that the tariff has an iufluettce on the movements of the banas?until we an* satisfied that the lariir increases the value of money, hy reducing the quantity of paper money afloat, and increasing the supply of specie, we cannot agree with those who attribute the present prosperous state of the people, and the healthiness that exists in every department of trade, solely to the influence of the present tariff act. W? must acknowledge that tho tariff?a pro movements of trade and the condition of the country ; but it is so flight,compared to other cullies,that it is nearlylost. The effect of the tariff, or rather the non-effect of the tariff', can be plainly seen in the above comparative table of quotation)1 for wool. Since the present tariff'went into operation, prices for this staple have been gradually declining. According to the theory laid down by the politicaj party favorable t > the tariff us it now exists, the reverse of this should have been the case. This article should have advanced more rapidly than it has fallen off' In 1841, the duty was merely nominal compared with what it is now. The secret is contained in the fact that, since 1841, the leans and discounts of our banks have fallen off' one hundred millions of dollars, and the circulation twenty-live millions in consequence of this contraction, forty cents a pound tor prime Saxany wool, in 1844, remunerates the grower as much as flfty cents for the same quality would in 1841.
