America* Proyuiok Mauri t. May 19.?Tho improved teeling in commercial alTairs continue*, but the improvement so far consists in revived hopus for the future rather than in auy actual advance toward* it iBiilthler and more settled trade. The uusettled state of the continent continue* to act very unfavorably ou aur manufacturing market*, which are in no degree recovered from their late depression?the prices of many kind* of good* having been lower on Tuesday last in Manchester then at any time peeviously. owing inalnly to the new* just then received of the attempt to overthrow the government of Franco. Trade here was somewhat interfered with by the same cause: still I here ha- been a fair demand for most kinds of produce .sitli a tendency toward* higher price* For provision* .he d"iuand is good- the whole of the imports being taien off as they come to hand. Beef has a steady sale without change in price, finer* qualities being tnurh * anted, und readily bringing 00s to 02* 6d. In pork here is less doing. the braud* mess"' nu?l prime" beng lower, while all fine parcels of "prime mess' readily jriug our quotations. Bacon continue:! to have a large -ale. but. as the imports are on a more extensive si-ale than was expected, the market has declined Is to 2<. ? I lams are se.ling more freely, but at very low prices. For lard the sale is unusually large, the whole of the lute largo arrivals having been sold at the rates previously current. The decline in the price of tallow, should it continue, will probably affect the demand for lard Hi the season advances Tallow has declined, and lower prices still are expected contracts for forward delivery having been made considerably under our late rates. Cheese, of prime ^utilities. would still bring our highest quotations, but any xtensive import would put Uoivu prices 4s to t">s. American beiug ni>w relatively higher in price than Kug lisli. while, so fir as an opinion can now be formed, the make of Ktjglish cheese will be larger this season than for many year* past. Ail operations for the coming -eason ill. therefore, be uu?afe. If not based on this expectation. Urease butter is wanted, and would bring higher rates, l.in-eed cakes have a free site, the best parcels bringing ?0 15 to A'T. at which rates the demand is likely to continue good In American seeds there is no business to report. The favorable chauge iu tlie weather has produced a very decided alteration for the better in the appearance of the growing cr >ps? the refreshing rains of this week being much required by the spriug-sown grai lis. while they have not been so heavy as to injure the wheat plant. Wheat and Hour remain without alteration, some of the country markets being higher, owing to small deliveries from the farin-rs. who are engaged in field work. Kor Indian corn and meal the demand has been more extensive from Irclaurl. and with small supplies, prices have advanced to 31s to ii-Js f.r yellow corn. 30* white and 13lid to 13* Hd for meal These prices would not be mainlaiued under heavier arrivals. ?

It will be seen by the foreign intelligence which we publish in this day's paper, and which is three days later than what we had received previously, that everything is going on favorably in France. The disorganizing Fourierites or socialists have been effectually put down, and peace and quiet prevail there. We apprehend that thp National Assembly will be equal to any emergency that may arise. Tile Clay Mcrtiiig_Movim?iita of 1'arllet. We give in another column, a rejiort of the meeting of the friends of Mr. Clay, in this city, which was held laBt evening, on the site of Niblo's theatre and garden. The tone of the meeting was certainly warm and enthusiastic for Mr. Clay. In numbers it outstripped any of the Taylor meetings; but the popularity of Mr. Clay, among the whig masses, here or elsewhere in the North, is no indication that he will be equally popular in the whig convention. According to all appearances, the unavailability of Mr. Clay is beginning to make a very formidableimpression on the country, in the Middle and Northern States. From all quarters, we hear that General Taylor is the favorite of the Southern and Western delegates. The whig masses in this region, are undoubtedly for Mr. Clay; but if the convention should nominate General Taylor, they will go for him, with a few and inconsiderable exceptions. The unpopularity of General Taylor among the whig masses here, has been the cause of much inquiry and much curious speculation. About a year ago, the name of " Hough and Heady" operated like a talisman, among the masses of the democrats, as well as among those of the whigs. This, we believe, was acknowledged in every quarter?in the Northern States a* woll as in the Eastern. What is the reason, therefore, that, after the lapse of a year, such a change has taken place in this city, in this State, and in this part of the country? Urie of the most prominent of them, we believe, springs from the squabbles and disreputable proceedings which have taken place among our military men in Mexico, which have thrown a stigma over military reputation in general. The affairs connected with General Pillow and the courts martial, have made many of our generals so utterly ridiculous, that the unpopularity arising from th in has reached the popularity of all military men, even that of General Taylor. This may be o.ie of the causestii.it affect Gen. Taylor among the masses of sensible people, belonging to both parlies at the North. Another cause, no doubt, arises from the bustling impertinence,and impudent loquacity, of many of those would-be leaders who have put themselves in the front ranks of the movement in favor of General Taylor. Take, for instance, the facts connected with this view of the matter, occurring in this city. The popularity and power attached to the name and fortune of General Taylor as a candidate for the Presidency,have attracted nil the wrecks and waifs and castings away of ill former factions, for a period of probably a quarter of a century. Look at the Wall street committee and the leaders of the movement who meet at Lafayette Hull. They are principally wrecks of former faction* in this city, who have been casj off and thrown aside by half a do/en parties* in the course of the last twenty years. Federalists, whigs, democrats, loeofoeos, people's men, lii^'h-lnnder.-, low-binders, nationalists?all figure in this movement,and are all well known and extremely distasteful to the masses of the honest ot both parties. The same may be said of th faction* which meet at Military Hall, in the Bowery. They consi>t principally of the rump ol the native rly, who produced so much excitement and so much disgrace in this city, and in Philadelphia of a more recent date. Tyler men, Talmadse men, conservatives, natives, all sorts, who have been broken down and thrown off from the great movementof the people^, have attached thein^lves to the wonderful popularity of Gener.il Taylor?as a hnndful of big flies will fix themselves to the mane of the lion, and think they can rise into eminence hereafter by sticking to the chief of the forest. These are some of the causes which have impaired, in this region, the popularity of General Taylor, who originally excit-\l so much enthusiasm among the masses of the democrats nnd wings. The same difficulties, we believe, do not attach to the Taylor movement in the Southern and Western States; and hence (!enei,i| Taylor's strength among the delegates of those parts of the country is much greater than it is here. The con vention, however, next we<k, will settle all these difficulties, and regulate nnd push them away, so that honest men will lie able to form an honest opinion. _ Tnr Latf. Tayi.or Mf.etixo at I.xrwnrrr Hai,i..?There was ?|uite a lr*sh man, on Thursd iy night, nt Lafnyette Hall, who, to use hi* own expression, "crept out of his shell," an,I turned the tables completely upon the old Clay men, wli went there to hurrah for Clay. The hackneyed politician* who have belonged, in the last twenty years, to almost every party thai can be named, are like wearied, worn-out carthorses; they have not been able to drug the Tayloi car along, or mike it move; they have stuck in tin mud?the clay has uii|?eded their heavy, wearied *mz?

But Mr. Girard, a wit, au original, and scholar, an haa been seen in the report of his speech in the Herald, made a new move, came to the rescue with fresh forces, brought up a " little more { grape," and routed the enemy with a Buena Vista defeat. It murh resembled that battle. When he began, all were for Clay; but before he had ended, the clay was brushed ofl:?the mud was gone?the | victory was complete; all were convinced, and the i star of Taylor, oliscured by the wet blankets of [ worn-out orators, shone forth again with all its orii

ginal and native brightness. Good ! j_(to along, old boy. Tiik B vunmrunkitn .\\? the Puesihencv.?We are informed that the barnburners are divided on the <|uc?tio:i of the Presidency; and that although a considerable portion of tiiem are in favor of General Taylor, yet it is not probable that they will agree to nominate that distinguished man, at the mass-meeting to be held in the Park, on Tuesday afternoon next. It is said that the barnburners, in holding their meeting on that particular day, and in anticipation of the whig nominations, mean to produce Buch an impression of the breach between them and the hunkers in this city, as to convince the Clay delegates of the possibility of Mr. Clay's election, under the hope that he may receive the nomination in Philorlrlnhii) Thf hnrnhnrnprH do not wiah lh>> whigs to nominate General Taylor, but would like to see Mr. Clay nominated; because then they would have a better field on which to take hold of General Taylor themselves, and support him. and organise, under his mantle, forall future occasions. There is certainly some show in this statement, and the reasons on which it is founded. At all events, the mass-meeting of the barnburners will be very interesting?for John Van Buren, Churchill C. Cambreleng, and a variety ofotherdistinguished "cutthroats," will speak on the occasion. Ii will, no doubt, be an immense meeting; for the whigs will attend it for the purpose of swelling the numbers, so as to promote the impression, that the secession of the barnburner* will destroy alt chances of General Cass in this State. The hunkers are in great distress at these thing*; yet they ought not to be so. Doctor Brandreth, of Sing Sing, can furnish an immense supply of pills yet. Henry Clay Meeting at Nlblo'a* The whig friends of Henry Clay made a last grand rally to procure his nomination by the Philadelphia convention, last evening, in Broadway, at the place where Niblo's garden and theatre formerly stood. For an hour before the time of meeting, bands played, cannons were fired, and drums were beat, and as much noise made as possible, in every other way, by his friends; and the consequence was, that at eight o'clock, the place wa>tolerably well filled, the assemblage being estimated at irom twenty-five hundred to four thousand people. D. Graham, Esq.. was the first speaker. and addressed the meeting as follows :?You are nailed upon in respoufe to the requirement of on? of the organs of the whigs of New York, the Democratic Whig Young Men's General Committee, a body of men of whem It is not too much to say, that for wisdom and honesty of purpose. fo? fervor of patriotism, for single heartedness and disinterestedness of devotion to the whig cause, and its great champion. Henry Clay. (Cheers) they are preeminent and on their behalf 1 thank you for calling me to the position which I now occupy, and to the alacrity with which you huTe responded to this call, for it is prool that thoy .have not mistaken the sentiments of the whigs tf New York ; and that when they hare Invoked you here, to add the impress of your approbation ti their doings, and your strong and urgent request to the convention about to assemble in Philadelphia that the great champion of whig principles may t? our standard bearer In the approaching con test, that ttiey will respona 10 tno can ayou have done. It is not long since you were called together in your primary asBemb.lef. to give expression to your opinion*; and oij that occasion, it is well known, throughout the length and breadth of the land, that in casting your eyrr abroad?in looking on the galaxy of whig statesmen who. of old. have led their hosts; and who. although hi ra?y have led you to defeat, never led you to dishonor ?you find in him the same man who. in every position in which he has been placed, whether in tbe liail ol representatives, or maintaining the glorious American principles of free trade and sailors' rights: or in foreign courts, in negotiating peace; or in the Senate, year af ter year battling with the cillorts of power, and resist ing the usurpations of executive authority; or in hi more congenial retirement, sending to his countrymen his solemn warning voice?a man who. in all his relations, has never failed to be the same thai he always was?the unwavering champion of the whig party?a man around whom cluster the hearts of the whig* of this Union?a man. above all. fellow citizens, who in the depths ot the adversity which has orcasionally overtaken us as it party?when the hearts of patriots almost shrunk within them?when they were disposed to give up almost all for lost?has never deserted us. and whom I trust in pod wo are not prepared to desert. (Cheers.) Was it a matter of surprise, fellow citizens, that iu selecting delegates to choose a candidate for the Tresidency. in no single ward of the city of New York was there a man to be found who opposed Henry Clay .' No, not one; and this fact is proof that Mr. Clay Is now where ho has ever been?first in the hearts of his fellow countrymen. Our delegates have been selected unantmou-ly. by the voicc of tbe whigs of New Vork. and they have been instructed by the voicc of New York to proceed to Philadelphia, and declare Henry Clay to be the first and only choice of the whigs of New York. We have the gratification to know that in this expression the city of New York is not found alone, for we have the best reason for knowing that almost an unaniraouivote will be given for h'm by the whole whig delegation from the State of New York. On this assurance it may perhaps be safe for the whigs of New York to rest; but a state ol facts has arisen which renders it necessary that the people should again give a louder expression to their opinions, not as to their choice, but as to their determination not to be betrayed. Fellow-citizens : I had supposed that tbe question of availability was over, and was disposed of, as a test to determine whig solec tions ; but we find that we are disappointed; and I will say it without fear, that with the experience of a Tyler, the question still stares us in the face?who is the most available candidate ??and that a portion ol the party arc losing sight of the promiucnt considerations of patriotism and fitness. We are hero assembled t? say iu the face of the country, and in tho hearing of muny of the delegate to tho whig convention, that the whig party will not again tamely submit to set asido the service* of the greatest champion of their cause and their principles, and if you should concur in the action of the committee who have invited you here, you will say in language not to be mistaken, that if any inan but t|r < lay should be presented to you as a candidate you will take the liberty to inquire whether he is n whig, and whether hv has pledged himself as such, i cannot bring myself on this or any other occasion, to speak in terms of disrespect of a man who has been brought forward by a portion of the party for the office if President of the linited States. For his intellect and his talent he is entitled to our praise;but when he is presented before usiuta candidate for the first office in the gift of the people, and when the whig party are told that we laust support him. we have a right to ask him whether. in his public life or in his conduct, he has identified biinself. in feeling, in judgment, in heart nnd in principle, with the whig cause; and if he has not, I -ay the attempt to nominate him will he little loss than .in Imposition on the whig party. You will also ask another question ; whether nuy caudidate who shall lie submitted to the whig convention is pledged to abide by the decision of that party? We, the patriotic whig parly of the country, have felt it to be our duty !? xummi .<ir. e v.. iuo> rouiuuiiuu, nuu when thin Ik dour, i* it not an itmult for another raudldate to *ay that whether hi- net* the nomination or Dot he will run ?

It it true, to be serious Id the matter, that we pulled the temple down on them, but at the name time we ourselves were crushed in its tall. And let us take care that in defeating tlii-iu again, we do not briug on tile country a Iriiln of evil*. *uch as followed the contest 1 refer to .loliii Tyler, through the dispensation* of Proviijencc, bocaiuu President of the United States, and brought on the admission of Texas, tile war with Mexico, the blood, the cost, and treasure, and the evils under which we are now suffering, and which every man regards as the greatest national curse that has befallen us. If we Had been true to our principles, spurned availability, and atood on the broad whig platform, under Providence our country would be prosperous at home, and respected abroad. Let us look at the thing seriously, and reflect on the policy that may befall our country, if similar evils come, that we ran say that the whigs of New York have had no p*rt in bringing tbein about. Let uie put another question. In case General Tayior should be selected as the whig candidate, he will be uncommitted to whig policy. He is not pledged to make whig appointments to ofllce. although that is a matter which I care little about; but what is of more consequence, he is uncommitted to one single article in the whig creed; and we. if he be nominated without principles, without pledges, are to take him blindly, and run all the risks of his misrule or mistakes, or any othur evil that may pour out of his administration. Are we we willing to endorse auy man in blank, to take a mail on trust under such consen uences. and ulace him in the Executive chairf I, for on?. must have something more explicit than thin. In General Taylor wc have no evidence that ho was ever devoted to the whig party; and yet we are told that he U the most available nmn that could be nominated. I should rather be willing that the opposite party, through their candidate should be responsible for the misrule of the country, than that one tittle of blame should attach to me. because in my blind confidence towards any man I gave him my vote, and placed him In the presidency of the Union. We are told by lome of the friends of this candidate, that there are no Issues between the two great parties. If what they say is true, tho country can come to no evil by tho election of General Taylor, and let us save ourselves all trouble and elect him. As a whig. I say that this is an aspersion on the whig party--a foul slander on their honesty, in tho name of all that is just aud true, are we not in favor of protection to American industry, of a currency the same for the government as the people, of internal improvements ; and 1 say it as a northern man. are we not opposed to the acquisition of further slave territory? (Cries of yes." from the crowd.) Yes, we are in favor of the compromises of the constitution, and wo will maiutaln them to the last, with our blood if necessary If called upou to judge of the question as a new one. we shall answer that the further extension of slave territory would bo a blot on our escutcheon. Let me ask you. If you know how General Taylor stands in reference to any of these great principles? Alabama and Mlssisisppl may be willing to take him without caring what his opinions are; but wc are different. We will know Ills opinions before we vote for him. In conclusion. I submit to you as wLigs, will you not sustain and stand by those who have stood by you? Will you not pledge yourselves that If the whig convention should nominate any other man but a whole souled whig, that ho will not get the votes of the whigs of New York.' (Yes. yes.) 'Will you not Insist that before liny nmn shall be a candidate he must submit his caus'' to the constitutional tribune ? In short, fellow whigs, you have two prominent names before you?one in whom nothing like political principles are to be found ; and another a man who. for a long life in the service of his country, has battled for your principles, and who is now sought to be treated with ingratitude. Will the whigs of the United State* turn recreant to Henry Clay ? (No, no.) We do not sustain the nomination of Henry Clay from any personal feelings ; we sustain and demand his nomination. beoause the eyes of the natloh are directed towards him. because we know that If he should be elected, the government of this country would return to Its former purity, that no aggrarian scheme will emanate from him.'but because that this nation will be ble?t under his administration. Whon Mr. Graham concluded his speech, of which this is but a sketch, our limits preventing us from giving it in full, the band on the platform, performed the favorite whig air. Hero's to you. llarry Clay;" and Mr. Dclafiki.d Smith theu read an address of the whig young Ml of the city of New York, and concluded by offering the following resolutions:? Resolved, Tint we hold the principles of the whig party to< well defined to la* misunderstood; too essential to the honor and prosperity of oar eouutry to he abandoned; too snored to be com promised: and as whigs. we earnestly protest aga.nst the selection of any man as the candidate for tho presidency, who is not well known as a true and abiding whig, whose election would 1* an undoubted guaranty of a pure and unadulterated whig administration. Kesolred. That having, in good f.iiih with our fellow whig? throughout the Union, presented the name of that illustriout Statesman xnd devoted whig. Ilenry Clay, for tho consideration and (abject t" Ute decision of the National Convention, as the candidate ' f the whig party for theprcsidenoy, we have a right to deinuid tliat the eonvantiou shall not entertain the name ol any inun as such candidate who will not, in like good faith, abide by the decirion and sustain the action of the convention. And wc teel it to due to our lutcgrity as wings to declare onrselvoi absolved fn a all obligation to sustain a ncmination not made ii conformity to the spirit of this resolution. Kesolved.

The address and resolutions were then adopted b> acrln niation. Tho Hon. J W Kowi.ru. delegate to the Philadelphia whig convention, to meet at Philadelphia, ok vVeduesday next, was then introduced to the meeting by the chairman. Mr Kowler addressed the assembly as follows :?Kellow citizens?This is no time or place to pronounce au eulogy upon Henry Clay; and. passing by the m.iny great and imposing featureof his character. I leave him with the general remark that the two great qualities of a commanding statesmanship that are seldom combined in one man. arc both strikingly upp?rent and beautifully blended in nr. < my. Auom?r. ana tun more rare commnauon I mean n high creative power to deviie. and an equally high executive skill and tact to rarry out. ({rent measures of state. These are seldom. very seldom united To nit down calmly in the closctand devise a deep-laid and judicious system of policy nu any of the grcut interest* of a nation?one that sliail contlrm the liberties exalt the morals. nerve the industry. and purify and elevate the happiness of a vast. self-controlled column nity?that shall reach, with healthful influence, tin restraint* of proper cheeks and balance* in every department of government, and operate with liariuoniou.' and wholscome rigor through the ten thousand channels of private life?that shall he likely to acquirt strength by action and consolidation by age. and se oure the permanency of both by the pliant adaptation of itself to all the new and nameless fluctuations incident to the social economy. This itself is one of the mightiest works of g?nius. liefore which all that li -plendid in the discoveries of science and the inventions of art. loses its comparative charms. Hut to reduce that stupendous theory of new. nuked and complicated conceptions, to a form best suited to be rightl) understood, properly appreciated, and to secure tin public approbatinn so a* to unravel, define, and compare its distinct yet complex features, and trace out by a far-sighted scrutiny, all its legitimate bearing' and practical results as to commend it to the views feelings, and whims of a legislative body, divided bj party sympathy, and jealous of party power?find abovi all. to bring it. thus thoroughly and minutely dissected into contact with the multifarious and conflicting opinions, prejudices, cavils, doubts and fears of a great and independent people, in a manner to gain their con rtdcnce, and to leave no question it involves unanswer ed, no obligation unmet, no difficulty unexplained ? that is a work certainly of equal magnitude, and vastly higher responsibility. Now you may traverse thi whole history of the civilizcd world, yon may hold coin reunion with the records of the greatest an 1 wisest ol empires?you may study the character and genius o the Cirsars and Solon* of antiquity, and of the Napo Icons and Chatham* of modern times, and you will find that these two splendid feature*, in high perfection have rarely been combined in the character and hittory of one and the same man. You may go back through the progress of Kurope for the last three centuries. and enquire at every turn and corner of Its hirtory, and, according to my observation, you will not find an instauce of such a combination. And vet. amid this dearth of ages. In other respects distinguished for their intellectual light and splendor, there is 0m1 tall form lifted amid the glorious simplicities of our own republicanism, in whose transcendant genius the union of this high creative power and executive skill in matchless perfection is shining out upon the world, and dimming the lustre of the hrightcst forms of statesmanship of which the despotism of all Kurope can hoaai?like the full moon, that conceal* by its brilliancy the stars, that would otherwise sparkle in the firmament of heaven. Yes, amid the green agriculture and bleating herd* of his humble domain, with not a flourish of pomp or twinkling of dazzle, to distinguish himself or his abode from the condition of the toiling masses that constitute the exhibitions of life nroundhlm. there lives an unsophisticated American farmer, whose statesmanship.

And thu people of this country, in the mighty influence they permit him to wield over their opinions and hearts, iu the brilliant demonstrations of that influence that every whure greet him in Ilia triumphal movement from city to city through the land, furnish a basis of proof on which I am not ashamvd to maintain this assertion before the world. So in the revolutionary struggle?generals there may have been with resources to plan great military movements equal to that of Washington himself.

I call him the (Treat political Washington of America, exhibiting, though on another field, a Washington's peculiar endowments, worthy, though in another form, of a Washington's peculiar honors; and though the dead may have failed, and the living may refuse to do him justice (yield him the honor due to bin exalted merits), I hero record the prediction, that as a matter of memorial attraction, posterity will convert his gravo into a Washington's tomb! He started from hi* humble abode among the common | masses, rose by his own powor. and by nothing but the influence of free institutions, encountered at overy step the most bitter opposition and enmity, that ceased not till 011 his proud elevation above them he could bid them detlance, nor even then. Like the young eagle tlutteriug about its nest, venturing from limb to limb, and then from tree top to tree top. till in full grown maturity and streDgth it wings its flight towards the heavens, beyond the reach of its own feathered race, and the sportman's cruel skill, so did he Btruggle alone from one elevation to another, till plumed and pinioned for an ethereal flight, he soared aloft, far above the reach, if not of human rivalry, of human enmity, detraction and abuse ; and he must be a marksman of no ordinary skill who can bring him from his present flight, or ruffle a feather on his broad spread wing. Political sportsmen, almost without number, and practiced to the perfection of the art, have made him their game. But they have loaded and flred only to load and flrejigain. Look at Thomas Benton. He is a marksman of no ordinary skill, trained on the political hunting grounds of the far West, where many a rival had been the unhappy vie- / tlm of his two sure and deadly aim. Tom thought he could bring down this eagle of the tun. And armed to the teeth with powder-horn and pouch, taohelled and strapped from top to toe. his long nine well percusbioued. and doibly charged, he took steady aim and fired. But no sooner hail the smoke passed off. than Tom had the exquisite mortification of seeing his eagle soaring yet untouched and undismayed among the clouds. 'J lieu came Andrew Jackson. To the old hero this bird was the souro* of no little vexation. HoveriDg over his path, its koen piercing eye was con- i stantly fixed on all his movements, and he swore " by 1 the Eternal'' that if powder and ball had any efficacy, he would rid himself of this overshadowing and tormenting inspection And despairing of success with smaller arms. Andrew brought out his 24-poundcr, charged to the musile with canister and grape, and in a tempest of determination, with flashing eye, with crimson cheek, aud his porcupine hair erect and bristliug. dashed up and applied the torch. A terriblu | explosion ensued.

The next in order, true to the instincts of his politioal nature. comes the little pet. nursed in the lap and heir to the executive honors of the aforesaid veteran. Matty, too, must fire his gun?and throwing around him the huge and dangling accoutrements of the rid hero, with ! a musket alike dispropot tinned to his size.hu started forth, hunted for the track of his illustrious predecessor. and straddled on for a while in his far-reaching footsteps, till a thought struck him?fearful of danger, ' and to escape detection, he skulked behind the office of ' his secretary, Kendall?called out Amos to discharge ' the naughty musket, and ever afterwards called it Mr. Kendall's report ; and as might have been expected, no ' harm was done either to Matty or his game. But I cannot compass the view. Suffice it to say. every j marksman in the democratic ranks has tried, and tried in vain, his most cautious and skilful aim.

The Hon. Dudley Sei.dk* then addressed the meeting. and offered the following resolution : ? 1 Rosolvod, Tl.a' we have witnessed with anxiety ami alarm, the eff rU made at the seat of government to influence tho action of ? theconvention in electingcandidates for the Presidency ; that wlien in times past lioth or the great political partie* determined to s .b<titnte conventions, composed of delegates socially ch?-en for thst purpose and frc?li from the people, in the place of Coegre?i>i <nal caucuses, they intended that t e choice of osndidstes for that high otHee should 1st made without regard to the plans or i combinations of their representatives in Congress : and they at the ssiue time determined, that the representatives should confine themselves to their legitimate duty, that of making laws, not Presidents. Mr. Selden then proceeded to comment with much warmth upon the conduct of member* of Congress Interfering in the people's business of Preildent making, instead of confining themselves to their proper depart> ment of law making. Ilo (Mr. S ) did not doubt for a 1 moment that if the matter had been left to the people. ' in every State of the Union, their free and unanimous choice would have been Henry Clay, nnd him nlone. for the whig candidate. Mr. S. strongly deprecated this > attempt of the incmbess of l ongress to control thu free ; action of the delegates of the people to the whig convention He asked the assembly, " Will you consent, to this ?" and the response was a loud nnd general burst of " No^ no!"' Mr. S. contended that all the I difficulty In the mntter had been brought abo ;t by < these members of Congress, who had planned to elert a man of their own. that they might be appointed ml j nlsters. consuls, and to other lucrative offices. Mr. S . then proceeded to comment with some severity upon the speech of Mr. (iirard. delivered the previous eve, ningat l.afayette Hall. In favor of (.en Taylor. He (Mr S ) then spoke on the question of availability. Ha | despised the word; it signified, he thought, nothing but a sacrifice of principles to policy. Mr. S. then con| eluded an able and eloquent speech, with giving at length the various reasons for which he went for Henry Clay. which the lateness of the hour prevents us from giving in full Mr Seidell, whose speech had been | greeted throughout with loud applause, sat down nmld the loudest thunders of approlmtlon It being now late at night, on motion, the meeting was adjourned. amid loud cheers.
