K. P. Bkllimokh. of Herkimer, called the meeting to order, and nominated Mr C. Crain, as President. The motion was unanimously adopted, and Mr. Craiu took his seat. Oil motion, Mr. Bknj. was appointed Secretary. Uu motion of Mr. Mann, of Oneida, a committee ?f one from each district was appointed to report suitable oflioers for the meeting. Mr. Mann then moved that each county in the State organi/.e by itself, and appoint a chairman to report their view upon the question of nominating a new ticket Mr. J Van Bcren said he supposed there waa considerable diversity of sentiment in regard to the nomination cf a new tioket. He believed that the appointment of a delegation from each" county to report their views upon this subject, would consume too much time, and in his judgment the proper, way would be for gentlemen from the several counties to rise and state their views, without reference to an exclusive organization by ountles. Mr. Mann then withdrew his motion. Mr. Mann, from the committee on'orgsnization, re turned, and reported the following gvntlemen as officers of the meeting:? President?C. C. Cambrklkno, of Suffolk. Viee Pr'iidtnti. 1st district?James il. Titus, Theodore Martin. '2nd " Daniel A. Sharts, 8 K. Johnson. 3rd " J. P Reekman, Geo. Warren. 4th ' Jas. H. Sherrill. Jobn Dana. .5th ' Alfred Munson, 8.

The report of the Committee was assented to by the meeting, and Mr. Cambreleng appearing upon the platform, waa greeted with oheers ; he gave many thank* for the distinguished honor which he had received, and then, surrounded by his Vice Presidents, took his seat as the presiding officer of the Convention. Mr. Cambruleng Is petfeotly acquainted with parliamentary duties ; even in nls age he iooka like a vigorous youth, still warm with noble passions ; he is accomplished as a debater, and ae a citizen his character is unimpeachable. On motion of Mr. Van Buren, a committee of one from each judioial district waa appointed, to draft an address and resolutions lor the consideration of the convention. Mr fUi oKiy Of H?mlaer. said he deaired to teat the neflN or incrnremog apvu ?? ? ./ ujumuewuf, a new ticket. The democratic sentiment in his county waa universally in favor of a new tloket. He offered a resolution that the meeting do now proceed to make new nominations Mr Coi.tin said, he had no doubt that If the "democratic" part of the Syraouae Convention had oalled another convention last week, and nominated A C. Klagg for comptroller, he would have been triumphantly elected. It was now too late to nominate another ticket There was no time for a thorough organisation; ancfthe result of a nomination now could only be disastrous to the great oause which it was their object to promote. He hoped this convention would confine itself to a deolaratiou of principles, and to the preparatory measures for the Presidential election in 1?4h Mr. Kilbubn, (a carpenter from Albany) made some eloquent romarks In opposition to the resolution The enthusiasm of the audience was so great that Kilburn itjs f/imarl rrn iinnn th? nlatffirm wh#*r? Hm nnnlH ho seen. He was only excused after iwBuriu; 'the boys'* that he would speak by and by. Mr. Dtvu. of Kris, opposed the resolution; It was not through fear of conservatism; but such a course would be clearly unwise and impolitic; he held in his hand some resolutions which he had been instructed by his constituents to present to the convention (Cries of ' read, read.") Mr. D. then proceeded to read theresolutions whloh he said had been adopted at a meeting of the democracy of BuiTalo. These resolutions oonsisied in a general denunciation of the general government?a denunciation of the conservatives in the gyraouse convention?an expression of eternsl hostility to slavery ?a vindication of the radical demooraoy? and a pledge to give the Wilmot proviso their unyielding support. They also expressed the determination o the democracy of Krie to support our brethren in arms In Mexico. Mr. Davis haviug read the resolutions, oonoluded with the remark that there was not sufficient time to make new nominations; be hoped every man would go home and vote as his conscience dictated,and upon his own hook. There were then loud cries for ' Wilmot, of Pennsylvania." That gentleman came forward, when threo tremendous cheers were given for " Wilmot," and three more for the " proviso." It is said that Wilmot does not assume to be the author of the principle asserted In the ' proviso," but that he acknowledges Thomas Jefferson ns its ^uthor. The celebrity, however, which Mr. W. has acquired through this strange proviso, has Invested him with a sublimated egotism ; his personal appearance is not particularly prepossessing, and if we should meet him in the street we would suppose that be was not an extraordinary man ; in height he is Ave feet and eight inches ; hii hair is of the coler of sand, and his face is freckl< d; as a declalmer he fills about asecond rata placo ; his voice lit mellifluous. and his delivery imposing ; he in fluent, an<l be is capable of touching those fine chorda in the human heart which cause It to overflew with enthissiasm and with team. Mr VV11.mot returned his thankn to the convention for the cordial and flattering reception they had given him He had come here from Pennsylvania in answer to the summons of his democratic brethren of thi Stale of New if oik He was heartily glad to see such a popular demonstration as this in favor of the rights of free labor and of bumpn freedom, and In stern opposition to the aggressive insolence or tne formidable Mave power of the Kauth. This was not a time nor a proper place to enter into an elaborate discussion of the great principles embodied in the Wilmot proviso? his namesake; nor did be design to do it. The call for this meeting was made on account of the proceedings of the State convention reoently held at Syracuse. The action of that convention was lamentable; it was deeply offensive, aud it was calculated to excite angry feelings among I ri? great ueiuonrauo Druuinriiouu. mil ne doubted the propriety of making new nominations; in hie judgment it wm not advisable. There waa one act of that convention which shouH excite the indignation of every democrat and every friend of freedom; that was the insult offered to Mr Kit-id, of New Vork, through hin anti-slavery resolution. In the convention, that resolution, which true democrat* should defend no long an there was hope, wm crushed und trampled under the feet of conservative*. [ Mr. W. seemed to be ignorant of the causes of division In the democratic party in thia State, other than the Wilraot proviso,! lie adverts J to Mr. Timothy Jenkina, whom he called a pure, highminded democrat, and in whose political sentiments he had the utmost confidence; and yet, said Mr \V , Mr. Jenkina is a conservative. [Cries of " No, he in a democrat?a true democrat "J Mr. Wlloiot also alluded to OrviUe Hungrrford.and to the unqualified support which he had given to the proviso in (ingress He (Mr. \V ) waa astonished at the apathy upon this subject now displayed by Mr. Ilungerford. lie (Mr. VVilmot) could not comprehend the cause of that romsrkabla apathy which seemed to have aff cted all the leading democrat* in thl- State, and yet this question was about to rand asunder the partv which had been In power lor the last half century What malign and vile influence (he asked) was it wnich had broke > the democratic party

In pieces? II? confessed it was the Southern slave representation la Congress; It was the slnve power there which wan breaking upth" foundations of concord, and of union. One of the most evil influences of shivery whs that, by the side of it, the white race wciit bsckward. It had been said that the friends of the proviso wore tinctured with abolitionism, and that they were aboiltlonists dtfact?\ this charge was false; we of Ihe North were ready to (bed onr blood to maintain the reserved rights of the States; we would adhtae to all the compromises of the con?titntlon, and in case of a slave insurrection we would defend tha South itself against this Institution ; what more could be demanded of us; we were required to abandon the free soil ot tha country; this waa asking mon than we eould surrender; wben we yielded ?? s? RK I NING, OCTOBER 29. 184 this wc yielded our honor, lie bad no doubt that all here fully uoderatooj the proviso, It had besn charged upon us that we had Introduced It into Congress fur the purpose of t-m burr lutein k the administration ; but no such design was ever entertained. It waa utterly false, and the authors of a charge so Infamous, knew it was false. Mr. W. alluded to the " three million* ' and the purchase of more territory; It was. he said, an overweening jealous v of Silas Wright, that made the administration think that the proviso was introduoed to impede the prosi'uution of the war, and to secure the elevation of that great man to the presidency. It had been said that even If the declaration asserted in the proviso was made by Congress, the South would attempt to Introduce slavery into the new territory. He asked why such a declaration as this would not be as valid as the Missouri compromise, or the ordlnanoe of 1787 ' Those measures had established limits to slavery, and the provis* would do the same thing This government had never made Itself responsible tor theeiistence of slavery. The Missouri compromise drove slavery down to the line of 36 30 That was not called abolitionism, and why was the proviso an abolition measuref It was not. It only {iroposed to prohibit the introduction of slavery where t never existed. We had been told that the South | wouiu never receue; mat iu?y would extend their peculiar institution May be the.tiuie would come when she would make slaves of uii. So help him Ood, he was as willing that the free white men of the North should be ckaves, as that black slavery should be extended. (At this point, the fervor and eloquenoe of the Speaker, and his impassioned delivery, drew tears from many eyes?we saw old men in tears !) Mr. Wilmo r begged the democracy to go home and vote the ticket nominated at the Syracuse Convention.? (Cries of 'no. no, no "pat's that over "'] Well, (said Mr. W ) if you will not vote the ticket, I at least beg of you not to make any new nominations lie then spoke of Silas Wright in a most lervld and impressive way. lie adverted again to the proviso, and to the assertion that it wa* a harmless abstraction ?that it had no vitality, und Ihnt it was a miserable scarecrow. If this is true, why net allow us to adopt the proviso f Why did John C.Calhoun introduce pro-slavery resolutions Into the Senate ! The South has declared she will not yield ; let come what will come, we will defend the right ; we will never submit to a surrender so humiliating The party that is in the wrong must yield, or the foderal Union must be sacrificed. It may be that the immense power and patronage of the iMtnuriil i/nvttrnmanft will rlufumt *hu I\rnwl?n Th? Hpeaker toew alluded to bis colleagues who bad stood arouDd him in Congress, in favor of the proviso, and to the refusal ot " old berks," (in l'ennsylvanla.)to respond to Mr. Uuchanan's last pro slavery letter. [Mr. W. was here interrogated in relation to the views of Mr. Dallas, of Pennsylvania, upon the proviso J He (Mr. W.) believed that Mr Dallas was of the opinion that the oharaoter ot any soil, which we may hereafter acquire, should remain as it was when it was admitted into the t nlon. Slavery, said Mr. YV., possesses within itself the means of its own extinguishment and dissolution. We must only take eare that its borders are not extended The introduction of slavery into California and New Mexico, would be a violation of an existing law of Congress. If the South extended the Missouri compromise line, we would meet the question again when they organised tbeir territorial government; and if they organized their territorial government without this restriction, then we would not sanction its organization. We would light to the latest moment, and other men, and other times would do justice to our efforts. Mr. W. then concluded, and three cheers were again.given for him, aod thrte more for the proviso. Mr J. Van Hi re*, from the committee appointed to preprepare an address and resolutions, than stepped upon the platform and read the address. It was an immense document, and would oocupy several columns of the Heratd. It contained a practical examination of the institution of slavery, and u solemn protest against its indefinite extension over any territory which we may hereafter acquire ; it protested against degrading the character of the existing war, by converting the blood and sinews ot Northern men into engines for the extension of slavery; it recapitulated the proceedings of the Syracuse convention, and it anathemized the conservatives, from whom It declared the true democracy of the North were forever cut loose: It also contained an eipret-s avowal of the pre-determlnation of the radical democracy to oppose the election of any man to the Presidency who was not pledged tc sustain the principle embodied in the Wiliuot proviso; it declared that the principle contained In tbc auti slavery resolution offered at the Syracuse convention by Mr. Kield, was one which it was the duty ol evfry democrat to sustain, aud the justice of which" tht whnlM niviliiArl world wniild RAknnvlAilirA It ulnn ran. pect!ully reminded oar Southern brethren that, thougt the Northern climate ?u colder than that of the South the hearts of Northern m*n were as warmly opposed tc the extension ol slavery as were the hearts of Southert men la Its favor; it reoomm?nded the democracy of thii State to call a State convention to assemble at Herki mer, on the Md of Kebruary next (Washington's birth day) to appoint thirty-six delegates to attend the na Lion*1 convention at tialtimoru in November, 1848; 1 asserted the great ?ruth that whatever individuals as sumed the reins of the government, the safety of the re public was anchored in the constitution; it contained a pure and lofty eulogy of the character of Silas Wright, and it congratulated tbe democracy that the State ol New Vorfc held his remain* in her bosom, and that his fnjnn'' "on V*l<t hU wmwrrr In tkitfr hoirft This singular and extraordinary and incendiary address having been read, was adopted nrmme cantradictnte, and wltb three tremen ious cheers. Mr. Kikld,o1 New York, then appeared upon the platform, aud read the following extraordinary resolutions; they ought nil to be published: ? 1. Resolved, That the proceedings of the late State Convention have made it necessary for the democracy of the State to assemble in this Mass Convention, for the purpose of avowing their principles, and consulting as tc their future action. J Resolved, That we protest agaiust the oonduot ol the factitious majority of the Syracuse Convention, ar false to the will of tbe democratic party, falite to tbeii cuerisueu uucinuea ui nueuuui, iu iiuibuuu ui iun rrjirB' (tentative principle, and disclosing pulitloal corruption which calls for the rebuke of every democrat, una thai we repudiate it as the exponent of the principles of the democracy of New York. 3 Resolved, That notwithstanding the apparent ascendancy of the conservatives In the late Stale Convention, the democratic party of the Staie of New York in now, as it has ever been, iu favor of a striot construction of the federal constitution, and of all grants uf power; ol the divorce of the government from banks and paper currency of every description; of freedom of trade and of Industry, and of those great principles whioh 11* at the foundation of our institutions, and to which our people are unalterably devoted?the equality and freedom of mail 4 Ilesolved, That we are in favor of free trade, believing it to be the true doctrine, both In an economical and political point of view. 5. Resolved. That we are in favor of the personal liability of corporators in all corporations established for the profit of the stockholders. 0. Resolved, That while we hold the strict doctrines of the fathers of the republican party, in respect to the powers of the General Government over internal improvements. wo believe that a praotiosl and wholesome rule of construction is presented in the letter of Silas Wright to the Chicago Convention; and we hold that the improvements should be limited to the proteotion of commerce existing rft the time of the improvement; that the principle applies equally to the lake and sea coasts, and those great rivers whose channels and oommeroe are clearly hevoml the iurisdiotlon of the Statea. and that the improvements should be provided for by separate acts, each limited to a single object. 7. Resolved, That we here renew our declaration of attachment to the financial policy which, first broached in IM41 in the people's resolution, and sustained by the aot of 1H4J. has been ongrafted on our new constitution; aud we have new reason to rt-joice that the constitution lias placed it beyond legislative control, sinoe we have ceen its enemies In the asoendant at the late Syracuse Convention. 8. Resolved. That the success of our arms has caused exultation In every patriotic heart, and that we will give to th* administration a hearty and vigorous support in the prosecution of the wnr to an honorable termination with increased energy and despatch. 9. And, whereas, at the said State Convention a resolution wan moved In these words : ? Resolved, That while the democracy of New York represented in this convention, will adhere to all the compromises of the constitution, and maintain all the reserved rights of the States?they declare?since the crisis has arrived when that question must be met? theii uncompromising hostility to the extensien of slavery into territory now free, which may b? hereafter acquired by any notion of the government of the United States' ?which resolution was refused dhouMlon, and stifled by the said convention; and, whereas, that resolution expresses truly the opinion and determination of the democracy of the State; now, therefore, this Mass Convention of the democratic nartv of this r?it?rat?a > ml adopts the said resolution, and proclaim* It as an Inseparable element of their political creed. 10. Resolved, furtbar, That tbe declared determlnatloo of do inconsiderable portion of our fellow democrat* at the South, to refuse to go Into a general convention for the nomination of a candidate for the I'resldency, except upon condition that opposition to thn extension of slavery into new territories b? abandoned, and to retoee their suffrages to candidates for office who do not oncur in such extension, makes It neceasary for the democracy of New Vark to declare that. If such determination U persisted in, and become* genoral. they will he obliged to adopt a counter declaration, and to proclaim their determination to vote tor no man, under any circumstances, who does not subscribe to the preceding resolution; and we recommend our fellow democrats to prepare for such am emergency. 11. Resolved, That we ?e|n-ve in the dignity and the rights of free labor; that fr.!? white labor cannot thrive upon the same noil with slave labor, and that it would be neither right nor wise to devote new territories to the slave labor of a part of the Statea,to the exclusion of the free labor of all the States. I J. Resolved, That while we do not complain of the inequality of representation between the cltl/ens of tbe iree aud the slave States, by reaaou of which the citl/.en of the stavuholding South who has four slaws, has a representation equivalent to three votes, while the oltixen of tiie froe North lias but one. because such was the original compact ot union, vet the freemen of New York will not consent to such an une<iu*l division of their power, with conquered provinces 13 Resolved, That all experienoa has proved the wisdom of that provision of the ordinance originally by Thomas Jefferson, and adopted by the Congress of the eonfederatlon in 1787, which prohibited slavery In the territory nortkweat of the Ohio, and that the CongraM I of tbe United SUtaa, being clothed by the constitution i with power to make all needful rules and regulation# respecting th* territory belonging to the L nlted states. It IERA 17. briiomra the duty Of that branch of th# gov. rnment to dhere to tha policy instituted by the father* of the re- I publio. and thua ensure to ali new territories the pro- 0 gress in arts. improvements, and enterprise, which bu J distinguished the northwestern State! ' 14. Resolved. therefore, That in the territory of Oregon and in the territory hereafter acquired by tne United t State*, on thla continent, neither *l?very nor involuntary *ervltude ihould be allowed, while it remains under ( the dominion of the Union, except for orlme whereof the party shall be flrat duly convicted 15. Recolved, That a deoentraliiation of the power of the federal government 1* indispensable to the parity of I our elections and the sucoeaa of our Institutions, and we therefore heartily approve of the proportion made and adopted in the Senate ot this State, on the 36th day of Ootober, 1847, for the amendment of the ooasiitutlon of the United States, which shall authorise Con- . greas, J 1st To provide by law, that any of tha oSloera of the United States for any State or territory, or for any sub- . division or portion thereof, shall be elected by the electors of suoh State or Territory, or some sub-dlvUion r thereof, and to presoribe the manner of such election Jd.

We 'hall adhere to thin usage. 17. Resolved, That there be a convention ot Dele- j gates irom the democratic electors of the different As- | sembly districts in the State, e<|ual in numbers to the members of Axembly, to meet at Herkimer, on the 'i'ld dav of February next, at 1 o'clook. IV M , to appoint 1 thfrty-six delegates to the democratic convention for the nomination of a President; to call a future oonvenTentiou. and to transact suoh other business as may ootne before them. 18. Resolved, That a corresponding committee of two from each county be appointed by tho ohair, to oarry into effect the common purposes, and objects of this convention These resolutions having bee? adopted, Mr OuiaMLllHi rose to speak:?He said we came here to meet a great and mighty issue, whioh was about to divide this nation. Some of the leading men of tbs South had persuaded themselves that slavery was an IndlsDensable element in the organization of Honletv This was the very doctrine upon which monarchy wm founded? It was not the doctrine of Washington and Jefferson. The Secretary of State, in a recent letter, comes out and tells you be is in favor of the extension of the Missouri compromise line The Secretary did not understand the Missouri compromise; it was designed as a limit and a barrier to slavery. The secretary was in favor of extending the line of thirty-six through to the Pacific, and giving the half to freedom and the other to the South; in other words, he was in favor of giving the oyster to the South and the shell to the North. The Secretary was not Initiated Into the early principles of democracy. Mr. ('. spoke of the ordinance of 1747. It passed unanimously ; or, if it did not, there was oily one vote against It, and that was the eccentric vote of Mr. Yates, of New York. The old North State voted for it, Georgia voted for It, and South Carolina voted for it. Mr. avowed that he approved the annexation of Texaa because he was in favor of extending the principles of freedom. lie did not expect that war wonM grow out of It. Mr. C. was very eloquent, and very severe upon Buohanan Several speakers followed Cambreling ; but, to-night, I have no time to give a fuller report. The oonvention adjourned at 8 o'clock, p. m.

The defendant stated that when Krail married tier he knew that herself and the person who had bought her from her master were living together as man and wife.
