The minority delegates at the Baltimore Convention, representing the annex ation of Texas and the nigger slave-breeding inter est, by refusing to vote for Mr. Van Buren, but by a juggle transfered the nomination to J. K Polk, the representative of Ihe nigger or no-wages labor ing clani, have given bo much offence to the white wages class of Pennsylvania, who desire to receive not Ipss than #300 per year for their toil, that there remains no doubt that Polk will receive 90,000 less votes than Shunk The same reason will be given tor not voting for Polk by the wages class of the State ol New York; hence he must receive thirty three per cent less votes than Mr. Van Buren did in 1840. I have "an abiding confidence in the intelligence of the people," and believe that Mr. Van Buren will have a glorious triumph ever Cal houn's candidate, J.K.

Ihe Big Plunge at the Navy Yard?La Belle and the BtUet?Falcon andTeazer?a Graphic Account thereof? by, no matter u>hom The 24th day of the 10th month of the 44th year of the 19th century?that is to Bay, yeeterday?was ushered into the world of existence, clothed in a cerulean blue as gorgeous as ever bedecked the firmament of heaven. An October sun diffused abroad its mellow light, and not a fleecy cloud of autumn intercepted its golden beams. Nature, in deed, seemed to hold a jubilee over the falsiticdtion of Miller's prophecy, and men and women, boys and girls, "niggers and loafers"?every grade,from the gold-spoon to the scrubbing brush aristocracy, appeared to exult in the beauteous evidences of the world's existence. Father Miller had had his day; he had immersed his saints and sinners in the wa ters of a so called regent-ration; and to-day was set apart by old "Uncle Sam" for the baptism of one of his saints in the waters of the Potomac.? Instead, therefore, of being launched, according to the prophecy of Miller, into the gulf of eter nity on the 23d, the "St. Marys" glided, like a "thing of life," into the river Poto mac on the 24th. Her debut was as graceful as her appearanee was noble. The calm, unrip pled waters, mirroring the immensity above?the high, surrounding hills, darkened by the shadows ef numberless beings?the vast, majestic ship house, whose counties window lights reflected the sun beam's varied tints?the panting steamers in the distance, crowded with tip-toe spectators?the smaller craft near by, with sails unfurled aud streamers sporting in the breeze?these, apart from the peerless aspect of the "Saint Marys," rendered the scene one of varied grandeur and beauty. The plunge was majestic. The naval bantling was re moved from the cradle of her birth to tne bosom of the deep, amid the deafening roar ol cannon, the swelling strains of music, ana the loud huzzas of an immense multitude. The incidents of the launch are scarcely worth recording; but one of the many may be noticed, on account of its novelty, and ot the infinite deal of merriment it afforded to all who witnessed it. 1 allude to the regatta of the boat clubs La Belle, Teazer, and Falcon.| "La Belle," previously to the race, veered round, aud, approaching one of the wharves, "presented oars, in honor of the many "belles" who graced the shore, and "doffed hats ' to two particularly, one of whom is as sweet a chi ming church belle as ever pealed the organic num bers of the matin or vesper hymn, the other beiug alfo of the angelic choir, though not a songster ot sotmuch celebrity as the-first. With this precious cargo aboard, "La Belle" plashed oars, and, fol lowed by the Teazer and Falcon, pursued the trackless deep, skipping the restless wave with swan-like gracefulness. The "Teazer," manned by a set of sturdy oarsmen, with jackets otl and sleeves rolled up, took the lead, whilst the "Fal con," propelled by a crew of "nice young men," accustomed rather to ply the quill than thenar, followed at some distance in the rear. The "contest waxed warm," every man plying the oar energetically. The canal, which in tersects the river near the Navy Yard, was enlivened by the contending craftsmen. The "Teazer" got ahead, and "La Belle" hard by; the "Falcon" being immeasurably behind. The scene at this point, viewed from the summit of a hill afar off, was perhaps as ludicrous, as farcical, as comi cal, as laughable, as any that ever opened to mor tal visioa on the "banks of the canal." Eitherside was lined with crowds of ragged urchins, who rent the air with the most deafening huzzas, incoherent ejaculations, and tumultuous applause, keeping pace with the boats during the whole line ot the route. "Go it Teazer!" shouted a hundred husky voices?"Pull away, Bell," cried out as many more?"Three cheers for the ladies," vociferated an equal number?"Row up, Falcon," exclaimed another squad, intermingled with a quantum ol hallooing and bellowing,groaning and hissing, that outweighed by far the aggn gated cheers and hisses that usually burden the atmosphere of a locoloco meeting. Victory perched upon the oars of the "Teazers," " La Belle" contending manfully for the prize, and the " Falcon" being outstripped by many odds.? The ladies (dear creatures!) were safely landed near Four-and-a-half street, one (it is said) minub a bonnet, which was inadvertently over-balanced by coming in contact with the nimble oar of one ol the crew?the other, 11 is likewise Baid, report ing as non ett two scentless roses that bloomed in artificial luxuriance near the fertile region of her imagination, supposed to have been uprooted by a flaw ol wind! So much for so much! I may give you some ad ditional particulars, not having time at present to communicate more fully. With my respects, &c., 1 remain?just where 1 Am. V. S. District Court?In Bankruptcy. B?f?re Judge Betti. Oct. 31.?In re William Redmond, an applicant for ditcharge under the Bankrupt Law -He u opposed by the Hank of South Carolina?who claim an amount ol $41,800, to be dui! on the part of the applicant, and which they allege to have been fraudulently obtained Irom the Bank in June 1841 - at a time when the applicant and a 00 partner named Laffitn were insolvent, and unable to meet their liabilities It appeared that for aome year* previous to June 1941, the applicant carried on business under tbe Arm of " Redmond and Laffan," and had exten lite dealing! i < cotton in the Southern trade, and that firm wero in th? habit of paying iu bill* which were placed in the Bank of Mouth Carolina and duly honored Mr. Bonnet appeared on the part of the applicant, and in hi* opening remark* undertook to (how that there were no ground* on the part of the oppoiing creditor* to sustain the objection* made againat the applicant. The varioua exhibit* before the Court, allowing the extensive dealing* of the Arm with the houtea of " Gould Hoyt and Co." " Gayhan and Co.," and varioua other houte* ol trade, proved that there were no ground* lor their alle gation. Mr. Bonney here read a long rtatement of ac count* between the home* of " Redmond and Co.," and several in the Sou'hern trade with whom they had deal ing?, and contended that the matn of the account* made it manifest that no fraud wa* contemplated on thfl part of the applicant, for whom he wa* engaged. If there waa a fraud, hi* client could not be made out a party thereto, a* Laffan, the partner, wa* the per*on who had traniacted the bu*ine*s u* agent lor the Arm at ttouth Carolina. Lallan and Redmond were general men of bu line** - they obtained good* on bill* in the ordinary mode of ba?ineu, having previously traniacted a large amount of builnes* in the Bank of South Carolina. They inu ed their fundi and lent forward their goodi. It had not boen proved that Laffan made false representation* at the date of the transaction in 1*41, to fraudulently raise mo ney. It was not shown that Redmond ever recognized ?uch a statement to charge fraud upon him. Redmond did not form a copartnership for the purposes of fraud ? He entered inte tbe copartnership for the purpose ol par suing mercantile operation*, but not for fraud But a very curioua feature in the matter wai, thai the Bank 01 South (Carolina, the creditori, came into "court an') allowed one of the Aim, Lallan, to he discharged, and ?hut their Months against him, whilit they opposed Redmond for what they illedgetobe a fraud?Redmond who had no direct negotiation with them It had been suggested that thi* wa* a compromise between the Bank ana Laffan. The Bank had come inte Court anil made themielvea public prosecutors, and it should be recollect ed that though the fraud hid been charged originating through tbe agency ol LafTan, that Redmond waion trial alone for the frau<r But suppose the fraud wu actually contemplated, the Court would please to bear in mind that by the lourth section ol the Bankrupt act. page tl, this court eould take no cognizance of any such matter in relation to a cue of bankruptcy, a* the court would bear in mind that by a recent deciiion in bank ruptcy it waa held, that if the parties had actually com menced on *tolen property, and afterward* come into conrt, they would (u?t l>e aa much entitled to their dis charge aa if they fad come into court in the ordinary manner, a* far as the power* of the court were constitu ted. They had the opinion of the court direct en this point. The next branch of the ease, in relation to indivi dual preference,which had been charged against the bank nipt, he contended could net be made out. The leerned counsel here entered into a detailed statement of the mat ter of account between the bankrupt and some of the cre ditor*, contending there wai nothing in the varioua deal ingi had between them and Mr. Redmond to warrant the conclmlon that fraud waa contemplated?when the Court ordered an adjournment.

Towards morning the wind however abated, ai d we were glad to find it had somewhut cleared up with a pita Kant breeze. We have, not heaid that sellout injury waa done, further than tin loss of a large quantity of truit, which was blown down, together with some delapidated fences, and the rool of an out-building attached to the premU?H in thu East district, occupied by the Rev.

Ho much so as to occasion the losa of several vessels and the dismasting of others while lying in harltor. A small sloop belonging to Great Her itor, was totally wrecked.
