BUltM Procession. The greet in ass meeting of the Democratic electors ot thin city, to receive the report of the delegation to the Baltimore Convention, took place in the Park yealerday afternoon, at 0 o'clock. About ten thousand persons assembled, the gathering being the largest we have seen congregated in this ity lor several years. There was perfect unanimity, but the displays of enthusiasm were not remarkably striking. On the whole, however, the occasion presented n formidable display of the numbers, unity, determination, and vigor, of the democratic: party of this city, and was in all re poets superior to the whig gathering for the purpose of receiving tho nomination of Clay and PreItoghuyseii. It was, indeed, a meeting every way calculated to alarm the whigs?it was composed ol the stern, hsrd-w-nrkiinr. unflinching old demo. eracy, whose quiet, subdued, hut earnest mode o| action lolls at the polls, and does not evaporate in the blustering bravado of Tammany Hull. At five o'clock precisely, the meeting was called to order, and organized by the appointment <>t CampbsliIi P. Whits, Esq , as Chairman, and a long string of highly respectable Vice-Presidents and Secretaries, with which we can't afford to oo upy our valuabls space. gfcThe Hon. Bb.nj. F.

The demociacir of our uuble State, tne hundreds ut thousands of democratic voters wnniii the Stan i New Yeik were almost aa one man with us iu this sentiment and hope. Nor did we, the democracy of the " Umpire State," stand alone in this respect. The deuiu oracy uC several States ol this Union?oi a targe majority of tue States ot this Union had expressed in their various primary, and county, and district, and State Conventions, irom time to time, within the last year,the like preference oud the like hope. Many oi tnem had given expression to their desire by instructing their delegates to the Haiti more Convention, to vote lor the distinguished and lavorite son ui .\ew York?the true and lauhlul democrat, the aacomplisht d statesman and the inflexible patriot,to whoo.

(Loud cheers.) \Ve had reason to hop. therefore, that whilst we did not iu any way attempt to interfere with the rights,the preferencee,or the feelings oi others, that the candidate of New York might have been UUmilMIVJ. i Ulf uupv ?

(Cheers.) Follow citizens, 1 shall not attempt to enter into any explanation of the causes which have led to our disappointment in this respect. I think it however due to the occasion, to you and to myself to say that so far as I am able personally to understand them, I do not think- I cannot believe that then was any good esuse for the impression said so extensively to prevail Id srioua quarters of the Union, rud chiefly to have ansen within the last lour or Ave weeks, with regard to tha noo availability of the distinguished individual to whom I have referred, as a candidate in the ensuing election. I have no doubt that though in soma parts 01 the couutry there has been an extensive change of opinion on the point rvfrreq to, those who met at the Baltimore Con volition and who had bafore made strong statements in respect to this aJledged change of nublic sentiment, pervading large masses, ai was ulledgea.ofthe democracy of several powerful items,most sincerely and most honestly believed what ism nifirmsi! nut sure I am that when the excitement of the present occasion shall have passed awry, nothing will hu found when tha calm judgment ol tne American people ahal! he pained upon the alleged causes of thii change of opinion, which ahall in the slightest degree detract from the honor, the ability, or the fame of the individual referred to. On the contrary, I (eel confident that the peculiar act to which the moat extensive changt of opinion advene to him haa been aacribed ? wbatevei differences of opinion may exist amongst honorable men and true patriots ot 'ach party in the country, with m pact to the vinws he expressed in thedocementto which ] reler? I say I hare no doubt that ultimately, by the general consent of the American nation, there will be eecorded to him, for that very set, the highest applause which any public man can hope to receive. I douht not that the whole American people will ultimately unite, however they may dtltar frem the peculiar views espresaed in that paper, in according to its author the praise of high integrity?of most pure and elevated honor? and of sincere, deep, steadfast, disinterested patriotlain. For, in the circumstances In which ha was placed, nnthtnv hnt rlanr conviction of thu tru'h, the Justice, and the patriotism ot the sentiment* he expressed, could have In luced him to lay them before the American people And the abil'ty with which he expressed the view* tltut sincerely and honestly entertained by him, will, so long ? the Knglith language shall last, and the archives ol American statesmanship be preferred, occupy conspicuous place in thu anuala oi our hiatory and amongst othri monument* of our intelligence, genius nnd patriotiarn. (Loud cheers.) Fallow citizen*, I have apokan thu* freely e( thediaappointment which you in common with me have experienced on tbia occasion, not, 1 hope I need not a#y, to damp your nrdor in support of the nominations I have presented to you in liehuif of the New York delegation, hut beams* it seem* to me that the sentiment* I have i xprMsid would be expected from me?would be concurred in by you ?would lie but the echo of your own voice on this oceiaion I have now dono with this topic I now proceed to lay a Itw words to you iu relation to the crwis now be.ore us. and In relation to tha duties which it I impoaes on ua. We are iu the very commencement of the great political contest of 1*44. It presents two most important iirues?isMii's on which the weal of the people ol the U Siati-a, end the preservation of the institution* under which it is our happiness to live depend. We have before us. arrayed in order of battle, the moat powerful antagonist* that we have ever yet seen marshalled in the aid. They do not come ta ua with all the muminery? with all the paraphernalia which cheiacterizad and ill* graced the contest of 11140. And yet they present to u* precisely the same principles,and they show a disposition, it the intelligence of the people would permit tt, to resort 'u tho some means now, m those which they employed t en. They meet us on the present occasion Inspired w li greater zeal if possible?at all events in a moro conrn^ tons and manly spirit For while in IH40, they con a puled an.I rfiaeinsad their nrinrii.tuu unit Hrmlv resolved to place do declaration of principle* before the public tbcy have now avowed with ulUclent diatinetnea* to enable u* to underatand.them.llhe iaauea which they plumbe!ire th# people, end the rode which they itengii to ac, co npliih.

Thia, however, I* what thuy mean, and along with thia measure, they have alio pledged themaeivea mora or laaa distinctly to others of the aame rha meter, to that tve have now distinctly submitted to tho American people the q'teatlon whether they will elevate to the Presidency the distinguished Statesmen of Ken tuoky ? who i* now the life, the aoul, tho head ol tho great federal whig party, and along with bim will establish e National Hank?provide for the assumption of the atate iehi?-the diatrihnUen of tke pnfclie land revennaa?In h I 1 E NE NE ternal improvement*?and adopt all tba other high i toned, federal aud whig meatmen for which the party ot c which he it the reprueentativu and tb* head ,bave been laboring lor the last twelve yearnf fellow eitixeiu, you i cannot escape the decision ol thai question.

We, the freemen t of this Umou munt now decile whether we will elect I I Henry Clay to the l'renidency (great ahoula of "no, no I and placu our neck* undid the yoke of it Bank of the < United Status, and accept at the bunds of thoau who will then be our ruler*, all the other measure* to which I hartalluded. Fellow cil,zuus, fellow democrats, can there be any hciita ion with you or with me in regard to the answer which wa will give to that question. (No, i>o I and about* of "we'll cut off Clay'* tail!" aye, and Mayor Harper*' too !) In any po*?ible circumstance* can we be accessory to the establishment ol^ those principle* ot gov. I eminent which we have alway* oppoced?wnich we believe to be not only repugnant to the conatitutiou of the Union, but vitally injurious to the right*, independence, moral* uud liberties of the people. (Cheer*.) No, no. With auch views, the democracy of the United Bute*? the masse* of intelligent and hone*t men?the tree men? the men into whoie hand* the destinies of thi* great empire ol State* have been committed?with *uch views the tree democracy of thia Union will reply to the ho*t* ot federalism anil whlggery, end to their distinguished leader?" We are not ready to succumb to a great monied power?wo are not ready to elevate again a power atiove the constitution and the laws?a power whicn may carry embarrassment and distress and ruin to every corner of the lund?a power which may defy the government and the people?a power which may corrupt the ballot braes, and, through them, may strive against the people lor the mastery at the polls." With such views, the democracy of the Union will reply to the congregated hosts of our opponents, no mallur how numerous limy may bu, "We will be lreel The battle of Bunker's ilill wa* not fought to establish a National Bank ; the blood of our fathers did not flow at Saratoga, and Monmouth, and Vorktowu, in defence of principle* which strike at the root of tie* government. The great battle of the revolution was not fought for the establishment of s great, tyraunioal, overshadowing monied power?and it shall not be." (Great oheering) Fellow citizen*, our hoets?the | hoiti ot the demoorecy are to be led on tin# occasion by < James K. Polk, of Tennessee. (Chaers.) Of that man, 1 am enabled to aay, that thivhistory ofhia public life, to which 1 have alluded, authorize! me to affirm that a more decided ?a more unflinching?a more able opponent of the Bank of the United Mate* iu a'.l its corrupting influence* ?In nil its insidious attempts upon the sovereignty ot the < people, and the purity of legislation, haa never been found within the balls ot Congress, than J.

Bufficu it to say, that by his services on that occasion, a* well as by the acts of his whole political lite, he made himself in the < State oi Tennessee, uext and second only to the patriot ot the hermitage in the affections oltbe people (loud cheers.) And so it will yet be found with us, it he he elected to the Presidential chair. He is an houest mm?-a man on wnom you may rely?a man who will never desert you in the hour uf trial?a man of pure, elevated, constant reuse of honor and Justice?a man who will uevei iu?|)poni my expectation* 01 me nuutsi. u? moeiscy of tbo Union. He is a man full) capable of the efficient discharge of all the duties jl the 1'ro-iJeucy. He ia in the meridian of life, a man jf sound intellect and bodily health, uutning in hia in Juatry, moat devoted in hia attention to business, and in >11 respects lully qualified lor the regular, the upright and tue successful discharge of the constantly pressing duties jf the President of the United Mtates. He la also laith ui to the conitilution ; he give* it a strict conatiuction. He haa been educated in the school ol Jtfi'erson, and, like out own distinguished and lavorito aon, he will exemplify in hi* adminialration, should he be elected, the greet principle* ot Jtlfcraoman democracy. (Cheer* ) '1 hut, then, leilow citizen*, having a leader who 1* honest, who Is ca palile, who 1* laithfui to the constitution?in whom all the Jelfersomaa principle* are thus united?what can we wish tor more ?
