Mr. Kimu. of Ga.. suggested that the question be taken upon all the report at once, except upon the resolution* relating to the Texa* representation. Mr. Kowleh. of New York, appealed for a separate vote upon each proposition. A very large minority of the Committee were opposed to every one of them lie hoped the vote upon them would bo taken separately. that the several propositions woul i be discussed with kindnef*. and to the extent which their great importance demanded, lie asked a separate vote upon each proposition Mr MlTr.Hin.L. of Mo.

(Applause) The ( mai*-~i hope that gentlemen will not applaud, or we shall get along very slowly whenever a good I thing is Raid we have so many of them (Applause.) Mr. Biiva's did not wish to be a General Commander to give the nine votes of hti Statu. He was the representative from Charleston.

[Question, ijueslion.] The resolution was read. Mr Kimi appealed, that Arkansas be not disfranchised in the Convention. Mr. lp'aA^kLi.v, of Pennsylvania, was in favor of the largest liberty; but was opposed to any one man giving two votes. Ho wo?ld give the right to All vacancies to Arkansas; but not to appoint any other thau cltixens [>f Arkausas to till such vacancies. Mr Nbwton, of Arkansas, said that Arkansas vras untitled to three votes, but she had only two delegates, lie wished she would not be disfranchised, as they had jonie expectation of oarrying that locofoco State. A Member?Well, we can make an exception of the State of Arkansas. | Yen. that'* right, that's right J Mr. Sitoc. of New York, referred to the Harrisburg Whin Convention, at which certain vacancies in the Kentucky, and two other State delegation*, were not kliowed to be filled, and laid that thia decision determined fie nomination. Mr. Hilliard. of Alabama, read from the same proceedings a resolution, authorizing each State to give iU fall electoral vote. Mr. Sine?We want no resolution here of that sort. We meet as brother whigs?anil every one should be entitled to an equal voice hsre. Let us deliberate in barmony. make our nominations and go home and iiect our nominee. The adoption of this unequal proposition before u? caa only be mischievous in its efI'CtS. Mr. Collirk, of Ohio, presented a strong argument igainst the proposition to fill vacancies in the congresilonal districts not represented, by the appointment of ;<intlemen to fill them from other districts or States of this Union. The adoption of this principle would [ilace a very powerful weapon in the hands of our ad- | vcrsaries It is the very principle upon which General I ommander voted for nil of South Carotins He may have Imagined that he all South Carolina. [Laughter J We have two delegates fram that State, and thev u-ould have their right hands severed from the'r hodl<V befbr: they would consent to such presumption. I would deprive no State of its full and legitimate reprelentation; but I am opposed to a resolution which irould authorize a fragment of a delegation to fill vacancies on this floor by going out into Mxrket street, or into the more polite Chesaut street, to pick dele ?ate? at their option, to vote with us in this Convention. The whigs of \labama would not sanction such in outrage. It would be a proceeding of the grossest injustice to the whigs of the whole I'nion. A Member moved the previous question. Mr Killer. of New York. (?tHndiog upon his scat.) ?1 am opposed to the adoption of the resolution. Mr. Kmanri.in?Is the gentleman in order? The i)u?stion is on the amendment. Mr. tuM.ER?I deny the power of any State to appoint substitutes. Wre do uot know but that they may misrepresent those they may profess to represent, rhey may east their votes in such a way as may lose the vote of New York, although they may redeem Arkansas. A Member?I call the gentleman to order The subiect of Presidential candidates is not relevant. Mr Fi'ller?I have said nothing about Presidential candidates The delegate from Arkansas says, that he lopes to have the plcasuie of redeeming Arkansas rr?m the darkness of locofocoism ; but the effect may be to lose the electoral vote of New York. 1 hope that the resolution will not be adopted. Mr. Conrad made a remark with regard to Arkansas, which we did not hear distinctly, but Mr. Nkwtojt, of that State, said that Mr. Conrad ra? corsect Mr. Coxrad?Then what application have the renarks of the gentlemau from New York ? , Mr. Fi'ller?Arkansas is The 1'resiuknt rapped to order, the confusion being . {rent. Mr. A. K. Brows, of P?.. contended th'it tho respec- t ive delegations have u right to fill vacancies. The Convention were bound to recognize this right; and , 10 man has a right to open his head and cay thut dele{ates to fill vacancies have not been properly appointed by the majority of tho States represented. Mr. Haskell.?I did not rise to discuss the resolution. I rise with a view to determine the debate. The union, harmony, and the interests of the whig party, ire sentiments uttered by every man who has adJre-aifd the Convention. Instead of harmony, this discuslion will produce dissension. It is known that the dis ussion does arise out of the adherents of one of tho larticular favorites for the Presidency, to give him the id vantage over the others. This remark produced much excitement, and it was roliowed by hisses-s-s-s and calls to order. The President.?The gentleman must not cast relections. [' Order."

Mr. Brasheak said that he was the President of the Wl>i{ Convention in Lousiana. and he signed the instrument which mado some of the gentlemen delegates, but one hour afterwards they . xcluded him here from ih- privilege of voting. He remarked that he was in his sev?nty-th;rd year, and had travelled three thousand miles to attend the Convention.

Letters satisfactory to the Clay men ure faid to 1 b<t here?real old whig letters from General Taylor, j submitting to the convention anil going the whole ' figure for a whi/ Cabinet and whig oftlee-'-olders. The city continues to boil over with this political efferves- i couce like a cauldron of soapsuds. All along Chestnut street, at the hotels, at the whig head-quartern, and on the street corners, gangs of men by fifties, by hundreds, j and by thousands, are engaged in fierce debates, cheering and yelling, as if the salvation of the country depended upon the uproar. The opinion is to-night that Taylor will get the nomination on the first ballot. W. Philadelphia, June 8. 1843. The caucus held by tho delegates last evening did not further the object of the Convention in tho least, aud the whole morniDg session has been spent in actiou upon the resolutions reported by the committee upon credentials. Tho proposition that the delegations from States not fully represented should be allowed to till vacancies.'being rejected, the districts unrepresented will of course have no vote in the balloting. This rejection had the effect of increasing the hopes of the Clay men. as it is known that tho States not fully represented would be dosirous vf casting their whole vote for Mr. Clay. Tho admission of four of tho Louisiana delegates to cast Taylor votes for Texas, has sinoe given quite the contrary impression. I The Convention has adjourned until four o'clock, but 1 the reporters and the public will not lie admitted until J six. It is to bo hoped that this privato consultation will enable tho Convention to pvocood to the balloting this evening The ratification meeting that had been fixod for today has been postponed until the day alter the nomination, and may not take place until Saturday. This will be a great disappointment to the thousands who ' have come hither to take part in it ; but. as it cannot I be avoided, the whigs will have to submit without grumbling. It is reported that a letter from Uoncral Taylor is to f which will increase the rote for General Taylor's ?ido. Telegraphic. EVENING SESSION. Philadelphia, June 8. 10 P.M. | The Convention met at 4 o'clock In secret session. It is understood that the motion to reconsider the vote ' by which Louisiana 1b allowed to vote for Texas, was rejected ; so that the four rotes of Texas arc to be retained by Louisiana. The Convention next debated the question of pro- j feeding to ballot f-T til.* nominee. A debate, on motion of the Ohio delegates, followed, to exclude all cn ndtdates for nomination, that are not openly avowed and thorough wliig?. There was evidently a lively time up stairs, from the continued rappings of the President's hammer, heard down in the streets, where the multitude were 1 waiting for the doors to open At 0 o'clock the doors were opened and the crowd proteeded. at every opening, to press up stairs. The chair announced his decision that the Convenvention proceed to ballot at 15 minutes past fl, with nn amendment, by a member from Ohio, requiring first? that the nominee shall be pledged to whig principles and the whig party. Mr. Hakla*d, of Kentucky, sustained the amend ment and referred to Henry Clay. [Cheers.] The chair decided the amendment out of order. An appeal was made. Mr. Haskell*of Tennessee, said the amendment was an insult to the Convention. [Hissing by one-half the ; Convention], he did not mean this offensively; but no man than a whig, could bo nominated by this Convention. (Cheers. Rap?rap?rap. Great fermentation.) Mr. Everett. of Vt . spoke upon the point. (Or- ' der.) Mr. Uentrv asked for action upon the decision. This Convention had no right to dictatu this or that candidate. Tho delegates came here under inctruc- ' tions from the people, nnd the nominee of the Con- i vention would be the candidate of the whig party. (Great cheering, the people In the gallery joining in.) The amendment was an uncertainty. The whig nominee would be tho whig candidate. I move to lay the appeal on the table. Mr. Ki'ller, of New Vork. protested in the name of tho New Vork delegation, which ho t>aid had not been heard?he said if that State was not heard, It would be heard through tho ballot boxes. The Chair said New Vork must be heard in confer, mity to the rules of the convention, as well as otlie1' States. Tho previous question was then ordered, and the question taken on the resolution, thit this Convention will Ht fi1,' o'clock, nroceed to the choice of a candidate for the offices of President and V'ico President.

The resolution wort put anil carried.

Mr F. offered the following resolutionResolved. That as tho first duty of the representatives of the whig party in tho United States, is to preserve the principles aud integrity of that party, the 1 claims of no candidate can be considered hy this Convent inn. unless such candidate stands pledged to nipport in good faith its nominee, and to he the exponent , of whig principles. A question of order on the reception was raised and sustained hy the chair An nppeal was taken, and debated by Ashman, of Massachusetts; Milliard, of Alabama. and Jenifer, of Maryland, on the reception of the resolution, as infringing upon the order. pr? scribe 1 by resolutions previously adopted. A motion to lay the appeal on the table was carried. A motion to^djourn until to-morrow morning, at ' | o'clock, was last.

Dear Sir : I have the honor to acknowledge your latter of the Kill instant, written. as you are pleased to 1 add. in lielialf of several hundred Nativo American Republicans of Philadelphia. Not conlidentially. hut not for publication. I have ; already replied to a friendly letter from David M. Stone. Ks<j. of your city, on the same mhject. I will ! write to you in like manner and In haste. Thin Is the ! month when the prcs-iure ft official business is the j heaviest with me?leaving scarcely time for necepsury sleep and tacrelse. I must not. h.iwever, wholly ncglect your communication. .Should any considerable number of my countrymen i.ssigu me, or desire to giro me. a prominent position before the public. I shall make time to methodise my views on the great question you have proposed. Those views had their origin in the stormy elections In the cpring of ISiirt and were confirmed in the week that llarrisou electors were chosen In New V oik. On both occasions. I win in that city, and hoard in the streets the cry. down with the Natives ! It was heard in almost every group f,f foreigners, as the signal for rallying and outrage.

The day after the election I set out for the .South, and hive never precisely known why our appeal was not published. Probably the election of General Harrison rendered its publication at that tini" unnecessary in the opinion of my two friends.

New York was in the highest Btate ot exciteuent all day yesterday, from ten o'clock in the Homing till ten at night. Of course we need not I'll our reuders that the sensation was produced by tie proceedings of the whig convention in Philalelphia, and the continued succession of rumors, nd statements, rela tive to the vote on the nomilation of a candidate for the next Presidency. First, it was announced at noon, that General Taylor had received the whig nomination. This lirew the city into u state ot the greutest exltement. The news rapidly run through every treet, lane, alley, house, shop, and hotel, in own. It had thirty minutes to circulate, and est the popularity of Old Rough and Ready n the city, before it was made known that the eport was premature. In arranging some signals in Jersey City, a mistake was made by a priuto telegraph man, who showed a white flag, the ignal agreed upon in case Taylor should receive he nomination. It came out, however, in the :xcitement and hubbub, that in the cauciu held the ?rcviout evening in Philadelphia, the vote thrown for Icncral Taylor ioat one hundred and sixty-eight. This rumor continued to astonish and delight he friends of General Taylor, and carry terror ;ito the hearts of all the other politicians, with heir candidates, until it was ascertained in the :ourse of the afternoon, that the actual vote in :iucus, on the preceding evening, had been one mndred and twenty-four for General Taylor, niney-nine for Mr. Clay, forty-six for General Scott,, ighteen for Mr. Webster, and three?good and true hree?forjudge McLean. This continued the basis >f speculation and wonder, near the bulletins of he newspapers, and at the hotels, up to and until lalfpa&t eight o'clock in the evening. At this lour, we received, through Morse's telegraph, the irst distinct vote taken by the Convention on the lomination, which gave us the following result:? Kirit HKiiri.*r Ballot.

The reception was nrranged and conducted under he uuspices of the two Hoards of Common Council of this city, irrespective of party politics. Such magnanimous conduct is entitled to the fullest l>raisc and commendation. General Cass was received nfi the candidate of a political party, and fet we saw whigs and democrats joining in doing uonor to the man who had received that high ho nor.

The right to dillcr is sacred, ind the exercise of that right in political matters, ?the safeguard of our liberties and the instituions tinder which we live.
