TREMEXDOCS DEMOCRATIC DEMONSTRATION AT TAMMANY HALL, Last Evening. Npwhfs of I i)l. Thomas H. Kenton, the Him. Andrrw Stevenson. \r. 4r. ?Vr., &r., Ace. There was a tremendous meeting at Tammany Hall | 1 r:-rt night. At a little after seven o'clock, the .top* of : he Hall wore rpeedily crowded, and the people teemed ! iti\iou? to hear Senators Benton, llannegan, Houston ] . Utiiro Bowlin. and tho othnr fumnne am?om -*-* I t< r? to our city. accompanying (General lass on his t' ur to the North. Before eight o'clock, we attempted to make our way into the house, to (jet into the gallery allotted to rep Tiers. We tried several doors, and made our way to some extent into tho passages of Tammany. Here it wits a curious aud picturesque sight. Tho long corridors aud galleries, and the flights of stairs leading to ill great hull, and we may say, the famous hall of the l.uuous Tauimnuy. were densely packed with a living mass, all wniting for the opening of tie doors of the hall at the appointed hour. For some time wo pushed along in the orowd. but found every effort to gut along was in vain. With difficulty we then got out into the -trcct again, and went round to another portal. Here we tried again to effect another entrance?here the euiae scene presented itself, the same denFe immoveable mass of expectants, not waiting for the troubling of the v %'ors. but being themselves the troubling waters, waiting, probably, the hour and moment for making trouble. We began to despair of getting into the bidding at all, thinking of course that the hall itself, as well as the avenues, was equally full. At length we succeeded iu gittiug round into the bar-room, and then upon making ourselves known to the gentleman beaiud tho bar. we were conducted, with great courtesy aud kindness, along private and subterraneous passages. up stairs and down stairs, through kitchens aud cllars, till at length, on ascending a Utile ladder in a 1 ttlw passage, we eanre to a sort of trap door, and on its opening, discovered ourfelvcs in a gallery of famous Tammany Hall, aud beneath us the great place of democratic rendezvous, with the staging already tilled willi people, but tho large room itself empty and void. On arriving In this mysterious manner into the Beat of tho Delphic oracle, there we fouud already mot several of our fellow laborers and colUihoratturi of the press, armed cap-a-pit with all the apparatus of reporting Meantime. the crowd upon the stairs, and at the do >r as well as the great multitude assembled outside, made lb 'tnsolres heard inside the yet imply hall. The shouts from without echoed terribly within, and gave indications that a mighty host was near. The knocking and crashing at the doors by the impatient crowd, waiting to be let in were fearful; at every moment it reined to us the doors must give way before the impatient mass At length, however, the doors opened, and in ru.hed the multitude, vociferating and shouting It was a curious sight to witness from above, as it were, elevated in the clouds, the picturesque sight of human excitement and anxiety. As they entered, '.hey rushe l rapidly and tilled up all the wiudow seats and every place where a little elevation could be oht..,ued In an instant, however, the hall was filled; no J to look upou this mass below was like being seated unou an elevated rook, out of danger, and lookiug down upon the roaring and raging sea. It forcibly called to mind tho beautiful description of the poet Lucretius;? Suart nari mngno turbantihui aiuora restil, dttpicert c sro/iu/o, 4'< " It was. in very fact, a roaring and tumultuous sea which we heard aud saw agitated beneath us. We sat like Jupiter, looking down from the clouds upon tiie nether world. Then mighty shouts arose aud loud cheers. " Three cheers for ( ass.'' which were irivon loudly acain and again. while still all wax in motion HUtl the crowds kept rushing in. in the midst of this noise and tumult. Mr ( amp, (the editor of the Police Gazelle) from the platform, came forward, and in words scarcely audible, called the meeting to order, and nominated Francis B. t utting. Esq., to the chair. Mr. ' ntting, on taking the chair, made somw remarks; hut the noise and agitation in the crowd were so great that only a few dii\jointed words came to our ears. We underi food him to express the sense he felt of the honor conferred upon him. aud to state thcohject of the meeting to be the reception of the distinguished guests wh.i were at present visiters in this city. Tho usual number of vice-presidents were then nominated. Loud cries hare ro?n from all parts of the Hall of-Allen," "Allen." The chairman came forward and spoke, nnd we discovered by the appearance of Mr Benton at the tribune, and the loud hurras which arose at sight of 'tis portly and dignilied tigurc. that he had excused the attendance of Mr. Allen and Introduced Mr. Benton to the people. Immense applause followed the appearance of Mr Bentou Three cheers were given, and tepeatod with an enthusiasm and ardor, such as i only to be seen at old Tammany. When the deafening noise bad somewhat subsided, Mr. Besto.n said; Fellow citizens?This I believe Is f iidny night, but 1 have passed through such exciting scenes withiu a few days, that 1 have almost lost n:y recollection. What 1 know, however, is that on Monday last 1 was in the Senate at Washington. transacting the public business, and in the course of that day 1 was carried off and whirled, as it were, in a vortex and by a tornado, from Washington City to this place. The whole journey, since that day to the present moment, has been one unvarid scene of iri'iiupu miu riuinuun m mi' sigm 01 uiai aisungltlMled man. who in the nominee of the Baltimore convention (Loud shout* and cheers; cries of three cheers for (ass. which were given with ardor and enthusiasm .) On arriving in this great city. I found thousands iiud tens of thousands of people in the highest state of exultation, and in the happy enjoyment of thoso rights and liberties for what other nations of the earth are now at a distanco from us contending. You are living in the enjoyment of which they are contending for. While our progress has thus been one unvaried scene of exultation and enjoyment, this occasion is the greatest of all. when 1 have the pluasuro of meeting and seeing the great mass and body, the bone and sinew, the mighty democracy of New York city, the wonder and admiration of every part of the Union, [immense cheering The cheers and shouts outside the Hall were here so loud that for some moments not a word Mr. (teuton uttered, could be heard ] Mr B contiinuc'l All this introduction was merely for the purpose of telling ywu that, after the fatigues 1 have undergone, aud the journeyings 1 have made. 1 felt quite broken down, worn out. and exhausted. all my ideas scattered, and that I did not feel possessed of physical force enough t? address you in a manner such as I should wish, and such as would do justice to the great occasion on whieh I have the gratification of meeting you. But the instant I stood before you your shouts, your animation, this "form and vortex of your shouts and applause, make tne feci as if ! had had a rest, and 1 now feel as fresh as ! first did on Monday last when I started. It is you who have done this Your animated shouts, your animated looks, your high spirits, have rc-animated and Invigorated me. (-Vpplauso?shouts? go it. horse ") Where am I ? Where am I.standing ?

The unanimous aplrit and harmony which I have witnessed everywhere, und especially what I see now this night, from the bone and sinew of the people of thia great city, convince me of the general approbation of the nominee put iorth by the assembled democracy at Baltimore. 1 see but one feeling, one sentiment, one assurance, and that ia. that the democracy will be victorious. with (ten Ca s and (ten Butler for it* candidates. (Loud cheering anil hurrahs ) But when I say this. I say. where do I stand? who are the people whom i ! ? m ........ ?i ...Kt.-t deep regret in that convention over which I had the honor of presiding for the second time in niy life; for i once before also 1 presided over thnt Convention when it nominated your favorite son for the Presidency. Uut. fellow-citizens, on this last occasion, when every State in the I'nion sent its delegatus to that Conven-* lion, and every bosom throbbed with anxiety and emotion for the result, it was not then for New York?for gallant, patriotic New York?to absent herself on that occusion You sent your representatives there, but * they were divided by differences and disputes, which have arisen among them at home, upon things and matters which ought never to have been made canons of the democratic faith, and which do not belong to the platform ot the democracy. Among them, on both sides, were my old and esteemed friends, and both parties demanded admittance into the Convention. What was the course the Convention took on this painful occasion' The conventiou felt itself to be altogether incompetent to decide upon their disputes and differences; it therefore put it to them to decide their own quarrel and settle their own family difference between themselves. as it was a matter originating among themselves at home, and having no relation to public affairs which concerned the I'nion or the great democratic party on the question of the Presidential election. (Cheers, and loud srics of ' right." "right.'' "right.") I wished to leave it to them to decide their own dispute. ("Ktghl," "right ") But it has been said iu a high quarter that the convention showed a desire to exclude the delegates from New York' 1 deny it. (Loud cheers.) In the face of the world I proclaim the fact, that it was not so?that wo wished not, we desired not to offer offeuce to New York. (Immense cheering, and long continued ardent shouts of enthusiastic applause.) I gloried to see them there. 1 would have rejoiced to have had them among us. (A renewal of enthusiastic cheers.) for 1 knew that when the tug of war eome. you were (he freemen; you the descendants of our revolutionary fathers, you were the men to obtain victory in the war. (Immense cheering ) You know what is the issue. The cu< my is in the field. You are the men to vanquish him They (the whigs) have put forth their standard bearer. What becomes of all their prinniul.ts in tin. nliriUu lh>c !,,.?? nf they have uo principles). Whore U their distinguished man of the Went, whom they wanted to prove to be the strongest man? He has been whistled down the wind. (Shouts and laughter.) But four days ago. their talk was of nothing but that distinguished statesman of the West, but now they have discarded him. and choseQ. it is true, a bravo and gallaut soldier, one who has led our troops to victory. 1 thank him for this, 1 acknowledge the service he lias done his country; but in choosing him for their nominee, they have deserted their principles, If ever they had any. 1 do not deny the merits of the General they have nominated; I any, render to Cresar the things which are i I sqsars ; but 1 say they nave proved that they have no principles; they have had their last resource In their last hope?mere availability?without re >,ard to their professed principles. 1 hare heard It has been said by a distinguished Individual of this State, that no man can be sleeted by the mere whig vo;e 1 believe it; and. therefore, they have fixed upon a military chieftain, that, by aid of democratic votes, by drawing ofT the democracy, they may elect their candidate by democratic votes. But the democracy will not be deceived and deluded by their trick. The motto they have chosen is ' Availability, and no principles." I appeal to you, Citixens of New York, in this great contest that is coming on. what will you do.' how well you act ? It is a contest in which the good or evil of our country depends?the very existence of the democracy?the perpetuity of the Uniou?and is New York. 1 put it to you. is New York going to withdraw, and look on tamely in this great contest? [Cries of No ! no !" and loud cheers.] Will New York, in this , death struggle, skulk the question, and not gallantly -t.and by the South? Will she throw away her vote (Cries of -No no \?never, never !"1 No, indeed, fellow citizens. 1 know you will not'. That sound which you have uttered, will reverborate from the Atlantic to the Pacific?Nsvir, never ! 1 call upon you. this night to unite, to stand by the democracy, to stand by the illustrious nominees of the democracy. 1 have confidence in you [loud cheers] ; and when the time comes when the battle is raging, 1 doubt not but we shall see every true son of New York? I care not for names?whether barnburners or hunkers ? I doubt not. we shall see the handy yeomen of New York State, rush with one heart and mind to the battle and to victory, and carry the man whom the democracy have chosen, in victory and triumuh. (Immeuse and repeated cheering.) All that the South asks for. is non-interference?leave us our rights and our property?and when the time tomes she will stund by you. as you. in the coming combat will, in spite of i-verv little domestic difference, stand bv vour countrv (Immense cheering) I would to Ood. I possessed physical powers sufficient. to give expression to what I feel this occasion?but I am unable to do so. I will only, therefore, add one remark, and that is. the words of Henry at Harfieur?"On to the victory?and embrace each other, dear friends, once more."' Mr. Stevenson then withdrew amid thunders of laud and enthusiastic applause. Mr. McAlistkr. of Oeorgia. was then introduced to the meeting. Kellow citizens, said ho. I had the honor of addressing you four years ago in this hall?in the year 1844. (<.?oid. good.) It was preliminary to a glorious victory (good) and I trust, that in addressing you on this occasion, it likewise is introductory to a great democratic triumph. I have never had the honor of holding office. (We'll givo you one). 1 stand before you like one of yourselves (good), as one of the sovereign unofficial people. (Cheers.) I speak to you in that spirit 1 have never held an office from the general government: I never expect to hold one. but 1 am contending, as one of the people, for the success of great democratic principles, which are intimately connected with the welfare and prosperity of our common country. Our common country, mark you ! Common to those who tread the soil of the Kmplre State?to those who stand under the burning sun of Oeorgia ?to those who live on the wide prairies of the West?common to every American citizen?(applause and cheers) Kellow citizens, another great battle has to be fought between the great parties which exist in this, ns well as every other country?between that party which favors the concentration of power in the hands of the few. and the party which is in favor of the distribution of power among the masses. (Applause.) The champions of the respective parties have been selected On the one side you behold the standard bearer of the democratic party. You see emblazoned on the upheld standard, the principles of that partyhostility to inonied power, and to high tariffs ; hostility to a national bank, and as has just been hinted to me. freedom of the sea*, (great app ause.) for the name of l.ewis (. ass is intimately identified with all of these cardinal democratic measures. (Applause and three cheers for (Ion Cass ) You know, therefore, democrats, for whom you arc to vote, in what cause to labor, and I ask you is it not worthy of your united support? ["Yes. yes ] it is. it is.'M Ou the other side, what do we see ? Not the pirute nag. to be sure, but a flag which is not knowa among civilzed nations [Applause] It has no principles emblazoned upon It?it has nothing upon ft except -availability.

["Wo will.'*] Fellow-citizrana of the Kmpire State!

Can It be that the etern. well-tried. Uonheartel and indomitable democracy of New York, will falter in the coming conteat ' (No, no. no. newer, ne vnr.)

Now. let u< give nine cheers for the nominations. (Hurrah, hurrth. hurrah ) We see the right spirit is abroad, and in that spirit let >: adjourn to Monday night. The meeting then adjouaned to the Park. Meeting lit the Park. About half paat 8 o'clock the crowd in front of Tammany became very large, and calls for Gen Houston and Senator Allen were vociferous in the extremo.? Gen Houston, accordingly, repaired to the Park, for the purpose of addressing those who had assembled outside. Scarcely had the Texan hero left the wigwam. than he was as loudly called for within; and the fact being communicated to the meeting where be was. a motion was immediately made and carried to adjourn to the Tark. At tho close of Gen. Houston's remarks. Mr. I'ddii, of Georgia, being called for. caine forward and addressed the vast assemblage for tome time with considerable effect. which were unanimously adopted. Mr. S. then proposed that they should more In procession to the Astor House, and give lien. Cass such a round of cheers as ho had never heard befere? previous to which, however, he said that he had a word or two to say about the harinouy among the whigs. inasmuch as they had chuckled at the division in the democratic ranks, and. as they supposed, that it would have the effect of enabling them to ride into power. The harmony of the whigs at the present time, said Mr. S., could onlv be oomparcd to the harmony that was usually met with at Donnyhrook fair, (tremendous applause) and by way of Uluslustrating this fact, he would inform his fellow-citizens that the Clay whigs had just been to Lafayette Hall, where the Taylor whigs were assembled to respond to his nomination, and broke up the meeting with a grand fight. [At this announcement, the mass made the place ring with applause.] General Hoi'stox. in compliance with repeated calls, again addressed the meeting for a few minutes, and thanked his friends for the kind manner in which he had been treated since his arrival, and hoped to have another opportunity of addressing his fellow democrats, until when, he wished them adieu. Tbo mass then proceeded to the Astor House, and after giving three times three cheers for Cass and Butler, adjourned until Monday evening next. The Taylor Ratification Meeting?Trouble lit the Camp?Dissatisfaction of the Clayltes? Indications of a Split. The Taylor ratification meeting was held at Lafayette Hall, last evening, and, as might be expected, was a most enthusiastic affair. The Taylor men were enthusiastic in their demonstrations of approbation, and the Clay men were doubly enthusiastic In their disapproval ofthe Philadelphia nominations ; and both were as enthusiastic as possible in their opposition to each other. Ths meeting was oallod for eight o'clock; but long before that hour arrived, large numbers of persons bad congregated in tho bar-room, and were in angry debate upon the subject of tho nominations. The advooates of Clay sfrure and called hard names; charged treason, and all other sorts of bad conduct, to the delegates who nominated General Taylor; while the Taylor men, being in rather better humor, because the game was in tnolr hands, charged back stupidity and a want of party support to their adversaries. The hour for the opening of tho meeting having at it-lu unircu. au usuun uiauv mni waj iu iuv nun which wan illuminated, and where Dingle s brass band drowned debate by playing " Hail to the Chief,"' ' Hail Columbia."' " Star Strangled Banner," and other patriotic air* ; after which the meeting organized by the appoiDtmont of the following officers : President?General Anthony Lamb. Vice President ?Lambert Suydam. Secretaries?Meesrs. Bates and P. V. Spofford. The President, who is quite an elderly gentlomau. arose and thanked the meeting far the honor they had done him. in selecting him to preside on so interesting an occasion, and was proceeding to road the address, but as his voice was too feeble to render his words audible in the room, the Vice President came forward and read for him. as follows : Fellow Citkcsi :?Wo are assembled to-night for the purpose of receiving an account of the proceedings of the Whig Convention, now sitting in Philadelphia, to select candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States to be supported at the ensuing election. (Cheers A voice?'- Three ehoers for Henry Clay." hurrah, hurrah, hurrah. Another voioe?-Three cheers for Gen Taylor," hurrah, hurrah, hurrah?rah. r-r-ah.) Although there was considerable difference of opinion? ( \ voice in tho centre of the room. - Hurrah for Clay." Another voice. " Silence." Hiss-s-s-s.)?respecting th< person who ought to be selected for the office of President. tho Convention Anally selected Gen. Zachary Taylor?(loud cheers, re-echoed acid prolonged)?for that office, by a large majority. (An audible groan was here instantly drowned by the cheers of the Taylor men. who cried. " Put him out," and were answered with - Better try it." by the groaning auditor. The address was at length resumed ) I presume there may be many whigs present who would have preferred another candidate. (Yes. yes. yes.) 1 hope such will cordially unite with us in sustaining Gen Taylor? (Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah.)?who, if elected, will, in my opinion, restore the government to the purity with which it was administered by our beloved Washington I sincerely hope that the proceedings of this evening will be eonducted in a spirit calculated to promote harmony among us. and with a due regard to the feelings of all. and that there will be a perfect union among the whig party, which will carry oar candidate triumphantly into office. The room was by this time Ailed compactly, and when the address was concludod, it was received with such loud and hearty cheers as would have done the hoartof the nominee good, had ho bead them. But those were no sooner concluded, than the Clay men began to be uproarous. and gave a number of cheers for Clay, with " hurrahs for the sage of Ashland."' while one cried out. " He's a sure whig;" another.' We know his principles;" and a third. "We dou't want any body else." tec. The Taylor men soon got tired of hearing this, and called for speakers:? Rliint "? Gerard " Geraril ' Blunt!" Blunt " Gerard !" " Blunt!" " Gerard !" Mr. Gr.onm: Bu-wt hereupon came forward, and raid: My friends: I will state that I have had the honor ol being a delegate several timei within the apace of fourteen years, and I never before witnessed more zeal and fidelity on the part of delegates, than by those assembled at Philadelphia, in favor of their respective candidates; (Cheers.) and. indeed, it has been a difficult thing to decide amongst the different candidates. Our candidate presented high qualifications, and elements of sucosse, which made us feel assured that we could not be disappointed. (Cheers ) I think that on the ground of strong personal feeling, it behooves us all to meet as a band of brothers (Loud cheering)?to meet in a true whig spirit, and 1 have the satisfaction tu announce to you that Leslie Coombs, the proposer ol Mr. Clay, at the Convention, as it has been announced to me. is to address the ratification meeting to-night, in favor of Zachary Taylor. (Cheers.) While in Philadelphia. I met a great many tip top whigs. and heard many a well told story, and. among them. 1 hoard one which 1 will just mention. A gentleman said, if you name Taylor?(hisses and cheers for Clay)--but if you name Cass, we will serve you as Sam Larkin was served in Tennessee.who always happened to have 1.50(1 majority. Sam Larkin never struck a man in his life; hut Larkin struck six fences. (Laughter and cheers for Clay). And when he struck, he struck like lightning. (Laughter ) So it would be with Taylor. 1 thall now introduce to you Mr. Lord. (Cheering.) Davir.i. Loan. Esq , here came forward, and said I confess that when this meeting aiijourned a week ago. i hardly ever expected to meet you under circumstances such as those under whicli we now meet it is most gratifying to know that this day we get the news of peace, and of the nomination of General Taylor. (Cheers ] We commence, my friends, therefore, with a new era, and mean to concur in the pi-ace [Cheers.] It is not my intention to detain you with any considerable remarks upon this occasion, when we have assembled to rejoice at the nomination of Goeral Taylor ; hut permit me to call your attention, also to that of the Vice President. Mr Nfaun [cheering; ?a man who grew up with the people, and who al?<; waft equal to every emergency.nnd whom the pnople duly elected to public office. [Cheer* ] We are not to eonxider now any question further than that we are hut a part of the great national division In this country We are no longer to consider ourselves merely ns Taylor men-but we are now the people, forming a portion of the great nation, who are to administer the government under principles of moderation, and in a peaceful spirit. [Applause] It 1ft a happy circumstance that we find In this party great decision and firrauess which unite it. It is a disparagement upon any man's wisdom and patriotism to Imagine that he will not embrace the circumstance which events have given ?(cheers)?to look forward with a view to the great honor of tbis country, (cheering, andclieers f >r lay.) and the glorious career of domestic advancement Our domestic harbors have improved our domestic improvements have advanced in every w.iy worthy ol

our admiration aud rejoicing (Cheers.) I. therefore forbear fatiguing you with my own sentiments; for you am all enlightened on this glorious consummation. I therefore, offer you. ray sincere congratulations ou the nomination of Oenernl Taylor. (Hisses, and loua cries 01 i nreo oncers lor i lay. wnicn were vehemently responded to. amid hisses from the Taylortte* ) 1 have bat oat other word ? (rriet of "Clay." ''Clay." loudly resounded from one end of the room, amid groan*, cheer* and hisses. and a general shouting and confusion, with alternate crier for Taylor and Clay, and "put him out," "put him out")." Vnothcr word I wi*h to nay: It in not by cheering. or by confusion, that we can carry the content; it is by voting, by acting upon the candidate* by giving to the friend* of Mr. Clay, of Mr Webster, and ol General Scott, every due weight In this great controversy. and by acting with union, that we can succeed. Mr L concluded amid loud cries for tllrard." and cheer* for Clay. Mr. Si oLm wa* here introduced and *nld: Fellow-c!ti*en*. I rejoice to meet, on thi* occasion, the representative* of the great whig party of the country. who have uttered their voice, and it is the pride and duty of every true hearted whig to respond to that call. ( Applause ) While the nomination wa* pending, it wo* naturally rl^ht that each man should have hi* own particular preferrences. I know th re was one man high in the nifeclions of the whig* of this Union?one that we nil l .vc, and hi* friend* stood by him manfully and nobly stood by him and east their votes for him; and now. since the die is cast, his friends should come out for him in native manliness, (cheers), anil stand?(Three ebeers for Clay?hisses, groan*, cheers for Taylor, and Incipient symptom* of a row.) Bnt. fellow cltltens (Cheer*, hisses, and alternate cries for Taylor ami 'lay.) ( msisman Gentlemen, you may cry out h* you please, but Jo not-interrnpt the meeting Mr. Scolei?The voices of ths people in in favor of Taylor. (Hisses. groans, and altercate crlaa for Taylor and Clay between both the opposing section* in the roam, who now elosed in upon each other, und got jammed up in a oorner.) Chsibmam?1 would again ask you, gentlemen, to come to order. (Groans, hisses.) Mr. Scolks?And why lathe name of Taylor at the head of the ticket ? The reason is, my friends, because (Here a regular jostling match took place, the belligerents closing in upon each other amid the most vociferous shouting for Taylor and Clay, which was kept up for some time.) itecause the whigs of the I country are satisfied, that with General Taylor they will succeed 1 say the whigs of the Union are satis| tied (Hisses, cheers, and loud cries of three cheers for Clay ) Yes, my friends, with Taylor at the head of i the ticket, success is sure to perch upon our banners. | ; and let any man cast his eye around the country, and j ' he will at once perceive, that success is sure with Tay- I lay at IDe ncaU 01 me urni-i. im-nvwcu cueern. auu cries of " nine cheers for Clay," amid continued hissing.) But it has beeu said that because General Taylor is merely a military man, ho is not eligible f'T the office He won a series of victories. and in this, or in any other country, nothing has transpired that could equal his brilliant successes. But it is not because he is a military man that he has been selected ; but because he bas other qualities, al-o: a strong mind, and an honest heart, and it is for those that be has been selected. (Cheering.) He has proclaimed himself a whig, and a moderate whig. (Cries of" three cheers for the Sage of Ashland," from the Clay side of the house, amid hisses, and cheers for Taylor from the Taylorites.) And we mean to stand by him in afTection and respect. (Cheers ) 1, therefore, call upon every friend to his country? every true-hearted whig, to rally round the name of Taylor, and let tbo cry bo. "Union and strength." (Applause ) And no man that professes to be a whig, can be in favor of any other course than that which will prostrate Cass and Butler, the locofoco nominees. In conclusion. 1 will ask for three cheers for the ticket of Taylor and Fillmore. This call was responded to loudly and vehemently by the Taylorites, and hisses as loudly and vehemently by the Clayltes?the band playing "The bold soldier boy," and the symptoms of a row on the increase. Jamvs W. Cii HARn. F.sq., was next introduced by the chairman, amid unanimous bursts of applause. He said:?My friends, 1 have called to see you all here tonight. without knowing or caring what are the politics ofany gentleman--whether he belongs to this endofthe town or to the other end?to this side or to that side (laughter and cheers)?whether any man is lit for office or not fit for office?I come here as a neutral man. wishing justice to all and Injustice to none. (Cheers ) 1 see here many men of the whig party, with all kinds of predilections, and also some of the party now in power. (Cries of " very few, very few ") I want you here to give me your ears. ("We will, wo will"). Let every man who wishes toevnress his sentiments do so fairlv. onen ly. and those who wish to cheer for their frionds, let them do so. I call on you with all my heart to " go it again." (Vociferous cheering, laughter and applause.) Now if I thought that the man in favor of the Taylor party, would detract one inch from the merit of Clay, I would leave the party for ever. Now, I would ask. have we a common prey to hunt, or are we to eat up each other? (Laughter and cheers.) I um a plain spoken man. and wish to come down to the issue: and I claim from the Clay men and the Taylor men just to be heard, as 1 wish to address all. (Cheers.) I see my friend Green here. (Confusion at the Clay side of the house.) Now. it is true that the whig party have nominated Taylor and Fillmore. (Cheers.) Now 1 would ask, why was it ? Why have they they named these men . Do you think thoy have put Clay one farthing less than he was before? No, but the reason was this, that although Clay was the darling of the whig party. (Vehement cheering from the Clayite section of the house.) yet it could not be denied, that by the mere whig votes he could not carry the utection, (Cries of no. and cheers.) Now as to this nomination. There is the calm conclusion of two hundred and eigthty men. assembled ?all for the purposes of the country, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains? and they say that it is their calm conviction that the nomination presented was the only and the best one. (Cheers.) I will say for myself that if they had nominated Clay, I would haveaddressed you all now inhis behalf. (Cries of"Tell us is Taylor a whig?") I don't care whether he is a whig or not. (Groans, hisses, cheers.) I want the grand conservative?(cheering, hisses.) I want none of your party hacks; (hisses) upon them I cannot rely.? (Hisses ) 1 hope 1 may be allowed to address the " extreme left." (Laughter.)' lam happy that lean admire your friend, as one of " nature's noblemen but there is a point which you are to consider, and that is, that they have selected their man. and can't go back. (Cries of ' three cheers for Fillmore.") Now. one word of advice to all friends: remember that the man you have selected, will, in all probability, be placed in the chair. (Tremendous cheering.) Let us. therefore, be calm and dignified. Let us have no exultation over Tammany Hall, or any man or set of men. We have all but one common object? the rescue of our country from the misrule that has surrounded it for the last twenty-five years. Let us then be united; and I would remind you that Tammany Hall has its spies amongst you this evening, watching your movements, to see if you will divide. [Criesof "Wo like to split." amid much confusion, and renewed symptoms of a row.] Now. I make a solemn compact * ith you all?if you mean to split, and by your splitting you can elect Clay. I will split with you; I would do anything rather thaj elect Cass; and if you aid me in this, 1 will split with you. I have to announce to you two great facts?the one is?(groans, cheers, hisses and cries of u Three cheers for Clay !") Wo have upon this occasion to commemorate two great events?the nomination of Taylor and the news of peace. I tell you all, that it Is by the influence of Gen. Taylor that you have got peace in your land. (Cries of Three cheers for Gen. Scott!" and renewed cheering for Clay) The Clayites here became extromely clamorous, and words ran high between them and the Taylorites. when the coufusion became so great that it was utterly impossible for the speaker to be heard, and he oeased speaking altogether, while the throng swayed back aud forward, unseating the reporters, and concentrating m<ur aitennon 10 me luutuvcvi corner 01 inp nan, where there was a belligerent manifestation going on. while all sorts of exclamations arose from all quarters. ' Put them out! They're no whig* !" cried the Taylor men. ' You'd better try it!" Hurrah for Henry Clay !" shouted the Clay men. ' Oh ! Harry. Harry Clay ! Oh ! Harry, Harry Clay !" ?ang a voice, to the tune of the well known election, song, bearing that namo. " Hustle 'em out,'' " down stairs with them." " Boo-oo-oo,'.?shout?whistle? shove?hustle?crack?(a board in front of the stage broke)?and the only reason there was not a fight was. that the crowd was too closely packed to allow sparring room. The Taylor men, however, finally succeeded in carrying their point, and raised six or eight tremendous shouts for the hero of Buena Vista; when the storm was once more assuaged, and the tables and chairs of the reporters replaced. When the speaker, smiling in his own peculiar manner, and as no other man can smile, was about to proceed, and was again Interrupted. Chairman? I call upon you all as good citizens to 1 come to order. (Cries of "Greeley. Oroeley." Mr. Or hard (In continuation)?Now. my friends, let I us be all goad humored, and take up where we left off. Let us throw aside what has passed There is peace in the land, and General Taylor has done every thing to accomplish it. We want time for repose for this land. Let us have no more wars or rumors of wars. We have got peace this day, and let us now unite and put down r the party that have made war. They have sent on (. Cass here, with the whole power of the Senate, and why have they come.' To create a political battle against . General Taylor and Buena Vista. Wherefore has Cass come here ? (Hisses for Taylor, then for Clay.) Here strong indications of another melee wore observed near the wnll opposite to the speaker's stand, and another rush was made for that quarter, where several of the still disquiet Clay mnn had formed a knot, and were angrily and rather loudly complaining of their ' wrongs;"' but a disposition to tolerate disturbance no longer, was evidently arising in the minds of the business men of tho meeting, and efforts were therefore made to call their friends away from the scene of dis turhance. and so the dissatisfied were left to themselves, and cheered " Harry Clay" at short intervals, as their fancy dictated. Mr. Gkrarp. in continuation. I shall Intrude now 1 but one remark, let us calmly and quietly continue to work until November; when we shall come to the day of battle, let us draw the sword and throw by the scabbard and arouse for Taylor and Killmore. (Renewed groans, hisses and cheers for Clay, with continued symptoms ' of a row.) I now move we adjourn. (Cries of-no, no," and hisses.) Mr. Bi.t'vt here came forward and moved the following resolution :? Kesolved unaniimii'ljr, that Oil" meeting cordially approves of the nomination of Zf^iuir? Taylor for rraii lent. an?l Millard Fill1 mors for Vice Presidootof thel'niteil Statu-, and will tine every P'iniihl? ?ffurt to rarry out the dndreil remit. Carried, with loud cheers for tho tentluieaUof tbo resolution. The resolution to adjourn having prevailed, the speaker* deecended frotn the stage, anil small discus' sion* were raised on the floor, but. by this time, the < lay men had either got tired with an over use of their energies, or were keeping quiot. hoping to organise a 1 < lay meeting when the Taylor men had retired. To prevent their organization in the Hall, it woe resolved to turn o(T the gas lights as soon as the crowd wore , away: and. witn this in view, one of the committee very kindly gave the reporter- un intimation, so that they might get down stair* while it was yet light; but, as the windows were filled with lighted randies, it was not possible to produce darkness until they were extinguished. This, however, was soon accomplished, and the attempt to organise a (. lay meeting proved abortive, and no alternative was left but to leave the 1 room, which all did with as much expedition us convenient. When the dehntant* reached the street, whatever their spirit of opposition might be. it was quenched by the beautiful shower of rain which was ' falling at that time 1 It will be seen that the address given above makes nn allusion lo Mr. Fillmore. The chairman stated thai the reason of this omission wssthnt Mr. K. had not r received the nomination when the address was prepared. Mr. Fillmore received at different times, during the evening, his full share of tho apjdause la-stowed upon the nominees. Whiff Meeting nt lite Tribune Ofllre. Last evening, while the democrats were assembled in their wigwam, a large number of whig* also assembled in nnd about the Tribune office, and, as we understand. called for Greeley. and requested an expression of his views upon the nomination of General Taylor for the Presidency The editor of tliu Tribune, however, begged leave to decline touching the question, either verbally or in liis paper, until the delegation had made their report. Nino cheers were given for Harry Clay. and as many groan* for General Taylor. The utmost dissatisfaction was manifested as to the result of tho nomination by the Whig Convention. Movements of Oeiifr*I Cum?III* Iteeeptlon nt the OoTernor's Room,City Hall. A night of sweet slumber after a day of toll, prepared Genersl i ns* for the duties and labors of yesterday The morning was spent at the AsU'r House in company with hi* political friend*, until the appointed time for hi* reception at the City Hall. ' At ten o'clock, Alderuion Crolius and Llbby called ( upon Oeneral Caw. and announced to him that the time had arrived for him to go to the City Hall to meet hi*; friend*. Without further ceremony, he left for that place, accompanied by Colonel Benton. Arriving j at the Governor'* room, there were very few person* , assembled, and there was no difficulty in getting a j J shake of hi* hand. About an hour had elapsed before there wa* any ehow of a crowd. ' At elovon o'clock. General Houston, and Senator* Allen, Koote, Bright, llannegan, Dickinson, and Stevenson. made their appearance, after which the crowd 1 began to gather thick and fast, and continued to pour ( in, In one solid mass, except when the door was shut to stop the press, until the hour of twelve o'clock. , A tall, raw-boned Yankoe, all the way from downeast. took General Cass by the hand, and oongratulat- | . ng him, said : ' Wo are goin' to do gometbin' handsome (Or you in Massachusetts, old hoss."

Immediately after the latter gentlemen mude their ] appearance, and took their position* in the introductory line, the people seemed to press with more eagerness than ever to seeOld Sam, of Texas," as they called him. About this time Editor Bennett, wishing to call on the good old General, for whom he has a great regard. picked up his hat. put it on his head, and sallied out from tho corner of Nassau and Fulton streets.? Meeting his lawyer on the way, Mr. Galbrallh. the same who recently screwed down Charles O'Conor, the great Irish lawyer, in the Bishop Hughes' oase before Judge Edwards, be asked him to acoompany him and see the lion of the day. The invitation was accepted. Both marched up to the City Hall, Editor Bennett attended by his lawyer, for the purposo of keeping him straight, and preventing any illegal act taking place during his visit, in the midst of the terrible democracy surrounding Gen. Cass. They entered the Hall. In approaching a considerable crowd. Alderman Crolius, ever polite and well bred, spied out tho editor, called out to him, "Come along? give me your hand ; I will introduce you." Turning to General Cass ho begun the introduction. '-Allow mo to I introduce to you Mr. James ." " General Cass at this instant looked around." 'Oh," said he. '-you need not make any Introduction 1 know this gentleman for many years," and he took both hands and shook tlicin. ' How do you. Oener.l Ca?s?" said the editor ; 1 never saw you look >>ettcr." ' Very well. I th.iuk you," raid the General. After a few other remarks. Oeuer.' l tasssa.J, ' ? ou remember i Paris?" " Very well," replied the tditor. Passing on a little further, the editor was introduced to Senator Benton, who stood up as stiff ns buckram. "Mr. Bennett," said the introducer. '> 1 am glad to see you," said Mr. Benton, in a calm, solemn voice, as if he was utteringa/ironunctamentc to regulate the concerns of the democracy. Tasslng on a little further, the tall form of the gallant Houston, the father, grand-father and progeny _ now, of Texas, and the President that is to be one of these days, spied him. General Houston threw out both hands. " How do you do. my old friend ? 1 am happy to see you ; and how is Madam." "I thank you; she and I are very well, and I am happy to see you so well. When do you leave ?" " To-morrow morning." With that the editor passed along, through flies of democrats ; and in coming down, he met Mr. Stevenson, formerly minister to London, and now in the train of the democracy, looking as well, upright and noble in appearance, as he ever did, and who is one of the most eloquent men of the party still. The conjunction of all these eminent men at this moment, is quite a feature in the progress of General Cass. They made their appearance at Tammany Hall last evening. A report of the speeches on that occa sion will be found in another part of to-day's paper.? To-day the city will probably be quiet. Thank heaven ' At twelve o'clock the doors of the Governor's room were closed, aud General Cass and suite conducted to that same old tea-room, where the provident city fathers had prepared a most sumptuous dinner, and which was most freely partaken or; after which it was intended to take the General to the public institutions, High Bridge, be. ; but just as they rose from the table, a short man. in breathless haste, called at the back door, for General Cms. saying that he had a despatch of great importance for him. at the same time holding up a letter in a buff envelope. His rush was suddenly stopped by the police who were in attendance; but Alderman Libby appearing a moment after, the fact of the despatch was communicated to him. and he sought out the man, and conducted kim to the presence of General Cass. The despatch was read, and General Cass manifested a geod deal of apparent uneasines, until suddenly rising, he Faid It would be impossible, from bis Firessing engagements, to visit the places whioh he had ntended. and very soon disappeared with two men ; but where he went it was impossible to tell. It was immediately afterwards ascertained that the man with the despatch was the editor of the True Sun. and the despatch was the news of the nomination of General Tayler by the Whig Convention, which required immediate 1 action, known only to those who were connected with j the business. The carriages, however, were called up, and thwgen- i tlomen who accompanied General Cass to tbe city, with a host of others, started on the same old track, to ! visit the visionless and speechless inmates of the asy- ' lums and the great High Bridge. ?iuun{( uu ii?iiiniiun>> The old frame of carting distinguished individuals , letting the city, round to the Asylums. llaudall'i !

Go It strong, ye city ' fathers ; the city treasury is inexhaustible. Baltimoiie, June 0, 1(M8. The Independent Taylor Meeting, ?f-c. Another most remarkable and funny affair came off last night at Monument Square, In the form of a grand independent Taylor mass meeting, on which occasion Charles II. Pitts, Charles F. Mayer and Henry Norrls, Esq., formerly all true and respected whig*. seized the occasion to stand unhlushingly before their fe'low citizens as revilcr* and abusers of their former political associates. General Taylor, thev asserted, would scorn to receive the nomination of the whig convention at Philadelphia or that of any other party or clique, and Mr. ritts stated that he was fully authorised to meet i with scorn their proposition to nominate him. This assertion is most flatly contradicted In this I morning's papers, by the pledge given by the Louisiana j delegation to the convention yesterday, that General Taylor would stand by whig measures, and withdraw j from the canvass if he should not be the nominee. The speakers were constantly interrupted by cheers for Cass and Butler. Henry Clay, and Ocner 1 -icott; I and finally Frank clallagber. who was discovered among | the audience, a bitter but consistent democrat, was called on and mounted tho stand lie scored ihe wh'g speakers for their desertion of Htnry Clay, who he presumed. was too good a whig for vh- m. and taking up a man whose sole merit ??' in his being asueeessfui uidi- ; tary general.

We arc overwhelmed with extremely interesting news from all quarters. A revolution of parties is lust at hand. Yesterday morning, the Whig Convention,in Philadelphia, nominated General Taylor for the Presidency, on the fourth hallot, by an immense majority over all opposing candidates, an 1 Millard Fillmore, of New York, for the Vice-Presidency. So much on that point. We hav * also been furnished with authentic intelligence from Mexico, of the final ratification of t te treaty tf I l?eacc with that republic, th.r depart ure of the American army, and the return of the Ameiic&n commissioners. All this intelligence is of the most agreeable and pleasing character. The Mexican war, 60 brilliantly commenced by General Tiylor, is finally closed, with a vast accession of n-w territory to the United States, including California and the splendid harbor of San Francisco. Th; huinbla individual, brave, modest, simple, and unost-1 tatious, who commenced so brilliantly taut war, ending in such a peace, is now placed before the American people for the highest office in their gift, by two or three parties throughout the country?giving the assurance, in the present crisis, that nothing can prevent him from being ..looted by the popu! ir suffrages, to the Presidency cf this country. Here we are, therefore, in the mij-dof n nrghty, but a natural, revolution i:i men and uiings, connected with political affairs in this republic. On the twenty-fifth of May, 184d?more tliuu two years ago?we stated in the columns of the Herald% two days after the intelligence had been Epread Koforn tVios ?Aiiimiinitir nf flin Knttlpa nf flip R la Grande, that the events in that region would create a revolution of men and parties in this Union, and that nothing could prevent General Taylor, the great leader and brave General in the ojtening campaign, from being elevated to the highest office in the gift of the people. Every subsequent piece of intelligence from that quarter, only confirmed the first impressions formed by us; and those impressions were reiterated, week after week, in our columns, long before any other journal in this country had formed a single idea, or uttered a syllable on the matter. What was then prediction is now nearly fact. That General Taylor will be elected, we entertain no doubt. The democracy, it is true, have placed before the country one of their ablest and most popular men, Gen. Cass. He is unquestionably a pure patriot?an honest man?a popular candidate; and under other circumstances, we are persuaded, could not fail in the contest in which ho is a leader. But the wonderful events, and the magnificent results of the Mexican war, have, as wo predicted at the time they would, produced a revolution among the youthful hearts, and young, untameable feelings of the American people, which the older and more staid temperaments cannot withstand, but which will bear them along with its surges to the Whits House in Washington. General Cass, had he the chances of election, in the midst of the opposition which is forming against him, even in his own party, would make a most admirable and worthy President. Even as he stands, he is a formidable candidate; and if the whigs, or any other party that supports General Taylor, imagine that the mere nomination of him as a candidate will elect him, without a strong,united, and terrible effort, they may find themselves mistaken, after it is too late. But we are not alarmed about the result. The same energy which accomplished his nomination in Philadelphia, will follow it up at the polls, to the seventh of November next. The revolution in parties is therefore more than half accomplished. General Taylor's name, his deeds, his character, his victories, his simple sublimity of mind, have been stronger than the trammels or influences of any party; and the ^jiigs, as a party, have been driven into his nomination, because they could not help it. ueneral l aylor is higher, morn l>opular, and stronger, than any party. No party can claim a victory in hi8 election, unleBB such credit be due to the spontaneous impulse of the whole American |>eoplc. The southern influence, for the first time, in half a century, is also paramount in the whig party. The country, at this crisis, stands in an unexnntpled position of greatness and grandeur. Our population, by the census of this year, numbers twenty-one millions?our property, renl and personal, is $10,000,000,000; our territory is nearly as extensive as oil Europe, running, as it does, lion* the Atlantic to the Pacific, boundless, beautiful, and prosjierous The final i>ouce with Mexico leaves us unimpaired, and ready to t ike ut. the po sition in relation to European aft'urs, which this republic must soon assume. Tlie democracy of Amcricn hue already thrown her whole burning soul across the Ail.intic, in sympathy with the democracy of France and Europe?h?r hand, herarn-, her nerve, will soon follow.
