THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN OPENED IN THIS STATE. Acc. &c &c. Albany, January 26, 1848. * The delegates appointed to act in the Democratic State Convention, at Albany, assembled in the Assembly chamber this afternoon, at 3^ o'clock, for the purpose of carryiig out the recommendations and suggestions of the late Syracuse Convention, in regard to the organization of the democratic party, and the appointment ol delegates to the National Convention, upon the district system. In the morning, at ten o'clock, the delegates held a preliminary caucus in the ** * ? ? * - ? :a? -A. ?l:.L AA. Mayor's court room in mis cuy, m wmcu iui. Charles Borland, of Orange county, was nomi. nated as temporary President of the convention, and George W. Clinton, ol Erie, and Eliaha B. Smith, of Chenango, as Secretaries. Previous to the assembling of the delegates, we observed Mr. Jno. Van Buren in the Assembly chamber, looking as if he was suffering under the effects of some powerful medicine. [Pills !] We also observed in the Assembly chamber. Mr CassidVi one of the editors of the Albany Atlus, Geo. Clark, ef Sandy Ilill, |ate of the Senate, and Mr. Wright, of Schohirie. also late of the Senate. The appearance of the delegates was highly respectable, though we could not but remark thnt they were plainly men of a past generation. The opposite section of the democratic party is, on the contrary, comuosed of young men of intelligence, activity, and energy. The uudience assembled to witness the proceedings of the delegates was very large ana respectable; the chamber was very well filled in every part, by attentive listeners, who seemed to feel the utmost interest in the deliberations of the convention. It is not surprising that nil parties should watch the movements of this wing of ths great democratic party with earnest solicitude. Ttie approaching struggle is one of the most important in American history, and upon no previous occasion have there been such momentous questions at stake. At half past three o'clock, the temporary President assumed the chair,and called the convention to order. Mr. Georgb W. Clinton one of the Secretaries, called the roll of delegates, which 13 as follows:? Albany?Abraham Verplanok, Augustus Pinokney Erartua Corning, Henry L. Palmer. AUrgany?J<?M?

The temporary President desired Mr. Corning, of Albany, and Mr. Moneil, of Columbia, to wait upon tli<' Hon. Mr. l>enio, and to conduct him to the ch.ur as the presiding officer of the convention. That gentleman, on assuming the chair, winch he oid with commendable dignity, delivered a pertinent and eloquent speech of half an hour in length. He acknowledged the honor conferred upon him in his selection as presiding officer of the con vention, and then reverted to the political condition ot the State, as being under the control ot the whig party, notwithstanding such result had been produced by a minority of the people ol the State. He then proceeded to examine the causes that had led to mis result, and called upon the convention to exhibit in plain, strong, and positive language, through whose delinquency it had been produced, and to recommend such remedies as would restore the party to its former position and strength. He then ulluded to the condition of the cottutry at hug", as in u state of war, which, although a public calamity, was far less burthensnme to bear than the national degradation thnt would follow by an ab tndoument of our present position with Mexico, so earnestly urged by a portion of the opponents ot the general government, and in the end, cont< nded tnat the id and comfort" given to tin' enemy by certain politicians had retarded and prevented the accomplishment ol an lu noruhle peace. He cl sed, by calling upon lito convention u> sustain their country in the pr sent emergency,and to rscoinmeud such measures as would produce the united action of all triends of republican government. The speech ol the President was received with appl otse. On motion ol Lork.'?zj B. Shepahp, Esq., ol New York city, a committee ol one from each judicial district was selected to prepare an address to be submitted to the convention. Also, a similar committee to prepnre resolutions; and u coiimuti'e ot tw o trout each judicial district, to perfect the organization ol the democratic pariv of the State.

The c nvention re-assembled atacven o'clock, nd at ten minutes past seven the President asumed the chair, and called the convention to E NE NE' order. He requested uiiy d l -gates who might have arrived in town since the orgauixatiou of the convention, to come forward and present their credentials. No delegates came forward Mr. MoVkai*, of New York, chairman of the committee on the address and resolutions, rose, and said that the < mrai'teo h*1 In-tructed h m to present toe ?ddress which be held fn his hand, as the result of their labors The reading of the address being called for, Mr. Mc Vean walked up to the clerk's desk and read it as follows : addrkss. Fellow Citizkvs ?The representatives of the whole people embraoed within the demooratie party, la aregolar convention of delegates assembled at Syracuse, in September lsst, appointed a State Committee, in whom they reposed, without any other limitation than their dlseretion, the power to, call future State conventione of the democratic party. No other body, stnoe ohosen, representing, or pretending to represent, the democratic party, has interfered with the power reposed in the State Central Committee That committee, in poreu anoe of the power thus folly rested in them, eailed this conrenticn, now here assembled. Its authority, ss a convention or the delegates of the democratic party, is, therefore, unquestionable. A distinct, separate and hostile party organisation of persons who wsre lately members of the democratic party, was afterwards made at Herkimer ? The persons who formed this new organization, made no pretensions to regularity, or that the movement whioh led to it was otherwise than hostile to the pre-eaisting organisation known as the democratic party. On the oontrary, they Justified their secession from tne party on the ground that it held to principles so obnoxious to thsm that a separation was necessary to the proper advancement of their adverse principles. Nothing has occurred sinoe to change their relation of hostility to the principles which, in thsir Judgment, jus tided their voluntary separation. They have, indeed, sines changed their plaoe of holding their State convention from Herkimer to ITtlca; but they do not pretend that It is a dif farent organization, or that they have changed in any manner their principles whieh induced them to ?epa rate from the party. On the oontrary, the whole machinery ot the Herkimer organisation has been carefully put in motion to declare to the world that it is their organisation, and that the principles which induced them to aeoede are the priuoiplus of their existing organisation at its changed place of meeting.? The3 do not pretend that the endorsement of their views by several of the members of the legislature, has in the least abated their hostility to the party trom which they went forth, or the organization which that party has kept up, and under whioh we are assembled in this convention. We concede that their organization is hostile to us to the fullest extent they claim ; that it is not only hostile iu form and aotlon, but hostile in principle. They have declared that their polliioal principles are irreooncilably opposed to ours; and as we are determined to maintain ours at all hazards, and exolude their narrow tests from the democratic party, their secession was the inevitable result of thoir petition. However much we niav iwret that the oause for senara tion existed, it is batter, the separation beiug effected bp their delii erate act, it sbouid be so marked as to lead to no mistakes as to our several positions. The high position that.enme of them had in the party, by our inttuenoe, aa manifested n their long continuance in office, reudarsit proper, on this ocoasiou, that we should briefly review tbe causes that led to the eeparation, acd the eons?quenoes that will follow it The occasion which led to their separation was, undoubtedly, that which they avowed in theiracL ot separation; namely, that the democratic State convention, at Syracuse, tvfused to adopt, as a political test, or as a subject ot political or party notion, the test, issue, sentiment or principle involved in the WUrnot proviso, and determined that the demoorntio party should maintain the position of neutrality in regard to it. It is well known, however, that their hostility was as settled and active within the party, before that event, aa after They generally assert that they are or vrere actuated by a desire to avenge the wrong that was inflioted on them by tne parly. That wrong they sometimes declared to be the defeat of the late Governor Wright in the gene ral eleotiaa preceding the last. Their hostility was as determined, and as openly, and as injuriously mauiteeted, during the campaign that terminated in that result, as after. ,n that very election, the democratic candidates tor Congress in one of the New York districts, in toe Westchester district, in the Orange district, in the D ltcoees district, and in the Jefferson district, were de sat 'd by them for the sole reaj.m that the national democratic psrty acd Lhe national admlnstration had the first affections of tbe candidates. In these congrneslcnal districts, tbe St a e democratic ticket, which they supported, bad a largo laejorily. J he defeat Of those d-mocrutlo candidates for < ougie's p aced us as a patty in the minority, in the present House of Representatives The wrong they in that campaign alleged as the cause 11 tbnr tie roe uoaliUiy during it, va- that President Polk had not appointed Mr. Flagg Secretary of the Treasury, and their friends generally to office. It is, indeed, true that Mr. Flagg was not appointed; out it is equally true tuat in the ooimnercial niutropolip, wnere the more important olBoet exist, the larger portion of those officers were appointed at their od/incaf- unit if. 4a tmt.uriniin fhn Punnnf anhamua fnr the Oisorgmiixatioa of the democratic party were planned and matured by noma of ths high federal officers in tbat city Their hostility had It* origin piior to the Inauguration of tbe President It Is well known that iu Congress, Intermediate the eleotion and the Inauguration of the President elect, ou the bill to annex the then republic of Texas to the United, the manifestations of treason in the Seuato to the TOice of the people, as declared by the Baltimore convention and ear ctioned by the elec tion were so stoog as to cause the general belief that its passage was in peril. To rebuke tins iucipient treason, slid to vindicate the supirninuy or the popular will, he ever reliable nod patriotic democracy of the city of New Vork, agreed io hold a pu die meting I'he same persons who personally labored tor days uuSUoOessluily o break up the recent democratto Mate convention at Syracuse, tried to break Up that asieinbly of t e people i'litdr treasonable letters from Washington, designed to effect such a i.urpose. appeared in a newspaper u New York on the day of the meeting, previous to the meet* log itself, although purporting to be in answer to I ivita cious to attend the meeting Their hostility to I lie democratic party and the incoming adeni i?:r<ti m. was as oleariy suadowed torch tb xi as it was . .*>oted tillerwards at Syracuse At othrr times they ass-rt, and mora fn <p?ttly, as the term of the admiuisiration appro?co?s . s close, tuat their hostiifty bad hf origin in the rcsui.sol the Baltimore conveuilou itself. This is, undoubtedly, the primary cause to which all others are accessories Tnese imaginary wrongs which excited their passion, have alt grown that fuuds menial wrong; the prospective lose of central power, wh'ch was madd inevitable by the result of the deliberations of the Syracuse convention, was, however the proximate cause which led tbem to break the sleuder ligament which yet bound them to the democratic party. The central power which had grown up at Albany, under the late constitution, at its commence ment. auj was wielded by those who held there the Slate oxeoutive oflices, was one of those practical political despoiisms which are felt without being seen The patrouage which that constitution give them, officially, afforded them ample means to exoite the hopes and fears Oi the needy, to extend their patronage, and to secure further means to reward the obedient and punish the refraotory. The whole Slate banking power, and the banks, with their over-shadowing money influence,were brought within the official oontrol of tue central pow r. The model of party organisation was the feuial system. The lords paramount at the centre controlled the intermediate lords in the centre of each county and hey again controlled th ir minor divisions Like its model, its characteristic was strength ; and like it,It produced a vassalage debasing and degrading To trunk up and disperse this power, was one of the controlling motives tlut induced the call of a convention to form a new constitution Most effectually was that great work consummated by lh..t It I. I. I f. . I l_ ?<* k.t their office* were the uere ihadow of their farmer power. It was eaiily foreseen, however, that they would struggle to retain their placet. and aa they approached the crisis of their fate, they wou d become mere deeperate; and it was foretold that the event which would reduce th-111 to the level of a common equality with other respectable citizens, would ei/u.illie th-ir departure from a party which lor a quarter of a century had pampered choir pride ; tUat th<*y would luxe all ?enee of graHlU le for the l>'-..g oootinued aud multiplied f .vora of ihe past.. in gratifying the d-sire to revenge toe oiulsdou, at last, to tou ti no them in place eurl power. Tb'< a iopaon of the o?w constitution clearly pointed to their n*ci ssary to complete the of >rm it was d signed to accomplish. It was proper that tha dispersion of the monopoly should be followed by the dlepanlon 01 tic * monopolist.e Those whose counsels prevailed at the Ayr souse convention, were governed by tha best of motives. Their design was to uutiamnrd the enures of pciith al power. Ti.ey did not oppoce the crntinuaneo in office of the repievntatlvi a ol the central power, b causa tboy held their pluoeslor a qnatter of a i entury, or beo?us? tl??y belonged toanoth r generation ; but because tlioy constituted a combination of pel son- habitually unfriendly to the enjoyment of freedom of opinion, and wars practised against ire-dom of action ; h-o*oes they hud wielded the central power, constituting the central despotism, designed to be overthrown by the new constitution The fulm(nation of tha wrath cf Ihe central power, the bittereet denunciation and the coarsest Invective, with which democrats were aa*ailed, who expressed the design to remove their odious monopoly, by the exercise of the long neglected duty of rotation In office, were allowed to pass without recrimination. hOug possession of otM,; and power hid led them ta oopslde- themselves the demnuratlo party ?tho whole of it in this H ate. and the moat essential part of it In the Union 'I hey consequently regarded the proposition to supersede tu-in in office as rebtllion against the party uud an insult to those to whom was commuted the sacred trust of governing. Those who were subjected mentally to their power, and whose passive submission entitled them t the rank ot true men. viewed them and the matter in the same light It was natural, entertaining suoh views of their position, that they should consider that the effort to remove them had Its origin in a desire to injure them personally, as well ae good govern ment, and be passionate; and It was^uatuial, also, that those who telt conscious that tney were aoiuated by tb? single desire to promote the public good, should treat them with forbearance. Indeed, nothing can better il<usl.rate tbs spirit of generous toleration which governs the true demoorsoy, than the mode in whtoh the assaults of the oentral power was rseeived and treated during the oontert which preceded end terminated la w y O W YORK, FRIO a V MOW the Syracuse convention; and w# may add. *1*0. that nothing oould mors strongly Illustrate the evil tendency of ths State constitution under which these rulers came into end were continued In power, then their course of ccuduet during end after that contest ; and If there were any lingering doubts among the people about the propriety !' tue reform provided in the new constitution, the subsequent conduct of the central power has forever dispelled them They ruled the party for twenty-five years, and whsn th' y could rale no longer, left it. because it refused to adopt the Wilmot. proviso ! What is the Wilmot proviso ? It will best be defined by showing how its adhe rents hsve sought to apply tho principle involved in it When the bill known as the Three Million Bill, was being discussed lu the House of Representatives, and which proposed to put at the disposal of the President money to enable him to negotiate a treaty of peace with Mexico, with territorial Indemnity, Mr Wilmot offered, as an amendment to it, s proviso that slavery hboul > be forever excluded fiom the territory to be acquired under such treaty The prinoiple, then, in, they propose aa an end, to exclude eUvery from the territory that may be acquired fhorn Mexico; and, as the means, a previous law of Congress, prohibiting its Introduction It is conceded by them, that it Is well-settled law, that without any action on the part of car gn*< rnment, slavery would be excluded from suob territory by the laws of Mexloo. which would he the law of the territory, when annexed, until changed This concession involves the admissiou that their proposed end would bt accomplished without using their means. It is au admission, that entire abstinence from political agitation would secure the endwhlch they deem bo vastly important. ' The demooratio party and its administration have also sn end which they consider of momentous importance, to the accomplishment of which they have devoted all their energies. Tbat end is the acquisition of territory from Mexioo, by treaty, not for the sake of acquisition, but as the only possible indemnity aud satisfaction attainable. The end we propoee, is the acquisition of territory?the end they propose, is the exclusion of slavery from such territory. We make uo issue with them on their proposed end Oar issue is as to their means Their means, although entirety unnecessary, by their own admission, for the accomplishment of their end. are the most effectual that could be devised to prevent us from aocomplishing ours. It is well known, and to none better than to them, that the agltatiou of the question of slavery, within the democratic party, is fatal to its ascendency They are sobooled in that truth. When they, with us, twice supported Mr. Vac liuren for the Presidency, and desired again to support him, for the thirdtime, we (they with us) declared in the most solemn manner, by resolutions, in Congress and out of it, that all politioal agitation whiah tended to disturb the relation between the master and his slave, in the Himi ovaieti?oibunuj(ii not me oojeci 01 lue ugituu'ii ?wan in contravention of the spirit of the constitution which it was our first duty to uphold; and was the worst incendiarism, because it" produced seotioual divisions and discord between the people of th < several states Is that which was unconstitutional wheir Mr. Van Bureu was our candidate, constitutional sow? Is that whioh wsg incendiarism then, less so new? These politicians may change, but principles never change; and the democratic party, standing fast to its integrity now as then, denounces such ajitition as treasonable and incendiary. W hatever others may do, that great party will maintain the compromises of the constitution in their spirit, and with tn? candor of truth. This was the ston? that was made the chief of the corner by the great apostles of liberty, whom we humbly but sinoereiy fol1 >w Nothing can better illustrate the entire abandonment by the Breeders, of their former principles, than to contrast tbeir p.client conduot. with their conduct immediately preceding the last Baltimore convention. They then denounced such agitation as incendiarism, because its necessary result was sectional division. They have since, without provocation, commenced the seme agitation, and point to that very result, aocom lished by their agitation, as their justification for its commencement. They abandoned the democratio party, because, in the spirit oi toleration and oatholio liberality, it determined to maintain a platform broad enough for them to stand on with us. The difference bet wren us Is this: we do not exclude them.but they have erected a new platform, so narrow in its dimensions, that it will hold none beside themselves it is possible for them to come to us l"he design of their platform was to make it impossible for us to go to them, and in that they were successful Why did the central power, after their open and undisguised abandonment of the democratic party, as proclaimed at Herkimer, since seek the endorsement of members of the legislature who happened to be at Albany? The members who were then there were elected und.T the eld constitution. Two several State conventions of the democratic party had been held, since their election, under i lie new constitution. Why were these vestiges of a lorraer political creation galvenis-d into a show of lif*? Were they so oowed by the exhibition of puhlio score for their faiihlessness, that they resorted to an expedient to extreme and desperate to give them a little of the coloring of that regularity wuioh a month before they had so bjldly soouted? They again adopted at Albany the same narrow, prescriptive, and bigoted oreed. They relaid the same corner-stone The priests that miaiscerat the altir are the same, and the worshippers ere the saute. l)iJ they intend to use this coloring as the foundation of a claim for admission In the Baltimore convention ? Why should they, wi'h a declarat ion of principles wholly at war with tb? principles of the seek admlsslou among them? They are intelligent enough to know, that if their principles should get ad mission into that convention, the democratio party would he broken up They know, also, that the oouven. t on will exclude thut priuoiple. What will they Ih-u do? They abandoned th-? Syracuse convention lor it* refusal to adopt that principle. They will be bound in honor to abandon, also, the national convention for the same oauve The State convention was tor State purposes. aud they then abandoned it because it refuse,! to adopt a principieof a national ch iracter. buviug nstbin, to do with State politics The cause 'hat was good at Syracuse, will be better at Baltimore, and they are since pledged to ,t su lie n > l ie le wb i believe that they -ill ..Old" t.y tue Baltimore conv-ution, under any ciicumstaoces. believe 'h-m to he more infirm ot purpose ana more dishonorable than we do. What other ot j'cl. th. n,cau they have in view than a ciniu to the houor of poti.icai martyrdom, with a view of making them more formidable for mischief in the pproaching great struggle between the d-inocratie partv and us enemies? l liey labored diligently lur days, at Syracuse, for a show of martyrdom; but they wore uusuocesslul t'.xper.euce has since proved to them hat ibey w- uid soon he powerless for injury to the democratic party it they did not endeavor to maintain a position within it The principle which led thsm to abandon the party is one they noid in common with the whig party. Tney and the whig party are alike hostile to those who oppose their principles Where there is agreement in principle (h>re is a tendency in toe 1 <w of politics to an union, w.noil time will certainly accomplish There can be but two par les in this couutry, and tbey are a fragment ot the one with which they Mgree. At oue electioa they gave the wbigs their presmt majority in the House of R-preseutatives ; at the suceeediog rleotion they gave the wbigs all tan Kvecutive departments, uiid both 11 uses of the legislature jn this Juste; and at this very ucur, when our country is engaged in a foreign war, they gloiy iu both achievements Fellow Citixkisi?The star forced upon us by the aggression of Mexico, is the war of our country. He that will oppese it, or he that hesitates in the support < > it, is not of the country. Ho is au a.ien in sentiment wtthin it, and is unworthy of the association ef Amorl osns. We are in favor ot the acquisitloa of territory, as compensation and indemnity. Those who profess to b<- in favor of the acquisition of territory, and insist upon the agitation of a subject which will prevent it, crunot very s.rongly oomnmnd themselves to the oauuld judgment of lh? intelligent.

When the potltloai power of the State was wielded for the benefit of Individuals, it was a necessary part of the system that the delegates to the national aouyention should express the oentral will, whloh was single. Under the new constitution, power has been so diffused that (he smallest oivil division may havs and express its own will, by the agent of Its own selection. The remnants ef the auotent adhere to their old system of cen trails ra, audi mailt that it is demooraoy as they practised it. that^delegates should be chosen by a State convention 'I'lley se*m unoonscious that this last remnant of fondaiity is inconsistent with the new order of things, and pertinaciously oling to the shadow after the substance has departed. They may eonduot their in- j ternal party affairs as they please, free from our interference. We have no veneration for their system or their practios. We prefer the progressive spirit of this age to the proeoiptive spirit of the laet. We think it decidedly butter to be demooruts in our aotions, than in our professions We go where demooraoy leads us, and we aro content that they remain where an exploded system left them Whatever foroe there may be in thejargument, that as between ths democratic party and the whig party, the State should give a united vote by a general ticket.inVleoting a President, it is without force in a frimndlv strnir gl between the members of the game party, in selecting n candidate for President. Nothing oan be more proper or more demooratic then that eeoh locality should be distinctly heard and felt in such a struggle. The district system of eleoting delegates will accomplish this end, and the State system will prevent it. This system is in oonformity with ths practice of the demooraey of other States, and we do most oordlally endorse the recommendation of the State oonvention in respect to it. Fellow oiUasns, ths demoeratlo party, renovated by the action of a new State constitution, and tha desertion of toine assumed leaders, is taking a new start in its career of progress. Those who would have imparted to its oounoiis the feebleness of a morbid fanaticism, and to its action ths Imbeollity of age, in tha vigor of its youth, havs voluntarily departed from it. They will take with them only those whose habitual servility has made them passive Tha democratic party wants no lenders ^Principle is the only leader that never deceives Nina out of every ten who in this emergency will quit thtsarty, will lollow leaders whom they have long regardM aa tha damooratio party, entiraly regardless of all psteciples The system of leaders, of lords, and little lords, is exploded Henceforth the people will be their own leaders and their own rulers Hitherto the road to favor was central influence. Henoeforth the aspirant to popular favor will appeal to the people?the true source of power. Public opinion, whioh hitherto was elaborated at the centre and compelled to the extremes, henceforth will be the aggregation of individual oplnious, flowing in freennd healthy channels from the extreme to the centre. The new generation to whioh the management of the party is committed, Is imbned with a better spirit, more tolerant, more catholio, and more progressive, than was that of its predecessors When the shackles ef the mind, whioh they imposed, shall have been fairly broken, and when ail our oitisens shall stand upright in the full onnsoiousasM of the possession of mental freedom, the value of the great reformation by the new constitution will he fully appreciated. Men will then no longer form their opinions by a calculation of profits, nor conceal tbem for *??r of lose Th? mental power of the many will theu reign supreme.

It there are any out of this State who believe that the separasion is a separation fir looal causes, let them be undeoeived We have shown that the hostility of the seceders had its orgiu in the action of the national democratic party itself, and that the avowed object of their separation is on a prineiple of national polities. Their hostility to us as a local party ia less bitter than their hostility to the na lionsl party to which we belong We are more subject to the exhibition of their hostility, for the reason mat we, as a part of the whole, are locally within tin sphere or iheir political aotion. Had the seceders, in a fit of passion arising from their defeat in some personal scheme, formed a new, irregular party organization, la our strong desire to upbota the democratic party; w" would williugly sacrifice all personal feelings to unite with them; but th-'lr hostility is worse than mere irregularity. It is fundamental; they are not only Irregular in their action, bat their hostility to t he democratic party itself, and itsjpriaaiptes, is determined. They have not only adopted the creed of the opposition-in its different phases of federal, whig, aud abolition -but its worst practices in sll those phsses, as exhibited in impeding the action of the government in conducting a foreign war, and in the agitation of a dlslurbing sectional question. Their opposition to the national democratic party is as determined as is that of the whir party proper, and more bitter. We regard them as the enemies of the democratic parly; not temporarily. but permanently. Their hostility to the principles of the patty is fixed, and la the cause, and not the result, of their reparation from It.

The reading of the address was interrupted once or twice oy contemptuous laughter, in the gallery. It will be observed that it is written with great caution, an i wuli distinguished ability.

Mr. Connine, of this oommlttee. mentioned that they would not b? able to make their report till to-morrow morning Mr Pahivbt, of Ontario, hoped that the committee on reeolutione would aubmtt at leait a part of their report this evening. While it waa lo course of preparation. the convention he eel d, oould determine at what place it would meet to-morrow morning. Mr Shfpard Intimated in reply, that it would be quite impotci'le for the oommlttae to comply with the request of the gentleman from Ontario, they were not prepared to submit even a report in part to-night. He would mention, however, that the reaolutione whloh the committee i designed to offer to the convention oon ourr?J entirely with the leading features of tb* address which had just been read Mr 8 elaborated somewhat upon the c iurae proper to be pursued by the demoeratlo party, in the great emergency in which they now found themselves Mr. PaWbust professed himself satisfied with the explanation just made by Mr. Shspard. and after having heard them he felt bound to withdraw hla request, that the reeolutlona might be preaented to-night. Mr CnaiviNu moved that when the convention adjourn, it will adjonrn to meet again to-morrow morning at 11 o'clock, in the Mayor'a courtroom. A gentleman moved to amend the motion of Mr. Corning, by naming 10 o'clock Inatead of II, aa the hour of meeting. There being no pressing business before the convention, Mr. MoVkan, of New York, favored ua with a humurous and eloquent apeeoh. He aaid there waa no doubt but the central power would fulminate their wreth aa they had done heretofore; there waa no doubt but thay would devlae every meana to lnault and aggravate the feelinga of those who were trying to uphold the standard ef the democracy in this emergency; he truated that in all their triala hla demoeratlo friends would act in auch a manner aa would eommend them to the judgment of mankind We were associated together for high purpoaea, affecting the welfare of our fellow citizens; our country waa now engaged in a foreign war; cur arralea were in Mexioo; the heart of every true patriot rejoiced when upon the breaking out of the war It became apparent that the government would be euetained. Who waa it that aupported the honor of thla country? It waa the demoeratlo party; and whan be said the democratic party, he meant the real demoeratlo party; not your spurious, proviso conditional democrats. (Cheers) Mr. McVkan was proceeding with spirit and eloquence, when suddenly the Assembly chamber was plunged in Egyptian darkness; some of the radical gentleman had found the way to the | gas pipes, through wlncli Uie chandeliers in the Assembly chamber are supplied with gas; by turning a screw in one of these pipes, tiiey had suddenly cut off the supply of gas, an f involved the chamber in complete darkness. While the convention was in this said condition, sardonic | yells and ironical laughter issued from the throats of the radical democrats,who choked up the lobbies and galleries. The voice ofthePresiaent.who attempted to restore silence,was drowned by the loud cries of the spectators. One of the Vice Presidents, who, by chance, had a locoloco match in his waistcoat pocket, ignited it, by scraping it against the wall. This bla/.ing'loco- j foco match, which the Vice President held up over his head, was saluted with cries of, "the lone star," "bring in your firebrands," "give him one of Brandreth's pills," "ha! ha! ha! hu! ha!" After the.lapse of several,mi nutes,one of the supernumeraries found his way into the chamber with a farthing candle in his hand. This luminary exerted a very limited influence; hut by its rays some ol the officers of the convention were enabled to find out the cause of the stoppage of the gas. They detected two or three of the Wilmot gentlemen in the act of turning the screw, and this, of course, caused the provisoists to beat a retreat. The gas being turned on agaiu, the chandelier was relighted, and Mr McVum resumed bis romarks Ha raid ha had understood that this blowing out of tha lights was a weak invention of tba enemy ; man who loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil; [oheere] men who were afraid of the broad glare of iruth ; [cheers.J he understood also that they were guerillae ; the officers of thin convention had found them retreating Iron the gae pipe immediately after the neferions deed was committed ; they were bid in yonder chaparral! [Pointing to the lobbies, which were crowded with spectators ] [Cheers, and cries ot " hustle 'em out.'M Mr. McVean then resumed the continuation of his remarks; he was very felicitous, and at tunes | ?n j lav urn anu c luqur n i Mr Thompson, of Washington county, mads the concluding congratulatory sp-eoh As a young bride is congratu'ate'l by har bridesmaids upon her nup ials. so Mr T. congratulated bis fellow demoorats upon the auspicious position of the Cass seotion of the democratic P*rtT- . , The motion ol Mr. Goming, tlist the convention will adjourn till to-morrow at eleven o'clock, was adopted; and at half past nine o'clock the convention adjourned. Albany, Jan. 27?P. M. On the reassembling of the convention this morning, Mr. Sliepard, of Ne w York, reported resolutions covering the same grounds hs tlie address, except in relation to the tariff. The resolutions favor the tariffot Ih-ttt. Mr G \V. Clinton, of Hull do, addressed the convention in :i very eloquent manner, calling oil the Wilmot proviso democrats to repent of th ir errors. Ttie resolutions were adopted unanimously. Mr. Cobnino, from the committee on organization, reported in favor of appointing deb gates to the Baltimore convention by districts; also, in favor oi uomin iting au electoral ticket. The couv> ntiou then proceeded to nominate electors. Thirty-six were chosen, being one for each congressional district, and two for the State at large. Ht.viAN J. IIkdfikld, of Genesee, nnd Camphkll P. VVhitk, of New York, are the electors for the State at large. C. Hooarih s's nainc was reported as one, but opposition was made to him on the ground tiiat he had (as was alleged) discharged some workmen, und employed a steain engine. His name was withdrawn. After the transaction of some other business, the convention, at half-past six o'clock, closed its proceedings. City Intelligence.
