(here tin-burst of enthusiasm in the crowd for Henry < lsy. and the cheers at the mention of his name, were overwhelming) ? but the representatives of the whig party of ibe whole U.S have met together in convention and decided otherwise. (Hiss-s?hiss-s). They had no object in view in the decision they have made, but t he good of the country. Therefore?(hiss?ss) ?I ask yon?(hiss-hiss)?I entreat you to go for the nominee of th%t Convention. (Counter cheers hero arose? " Yes. yes, yes." and cheers, on one side?"

ef constitutional power have been settled by the various departments of government, and acquiesced in' by the people ; ami that, for many years past, thJ known opinions and wishes of the Executive nave exercised an undue and injurious intluence upon tht legi.-lative department of the government, thus threats ening our syslem with a great change from its trud theory. Resolved, That wo sinceiely rejoice at the restoration of peace with Mexioo?that we regard war at all times, and under ail circumstances, as a national calamity, to be avoided if compatible with the national honor?that the principles of our government, as well as its true policy, arc opposed to the subjugation of other nations, 1 and the dismemberment of other countries by conquest?that in the Mexican war, our national honor has been vindicated; and that, in d'etating terms of j peace, we could well afford to be forbearing and magnanimous to a fallen foe. Resolved, That the President of the United States should have no private purposes to accomplish, no par1 ty projects to build up. no enemies to punish?nothing ' to serve but bis country; and that the administration of John Tyler affords conclusive evidence of the fact, that one who cannot be trusted without pledges, cannot he confided in merely on account of thein. Resolved. That Zachary Taylor and Millard Fillmuro. when elected President and Vice President of tho United States, will carry out these great cardinal principles of the whig faith; and 'hat in their characters. public life and known opinions, we have abundant ground for this belief. Resolved. That we should deprecate the election of Lewi* (.'ass to tho Presidency, as an overwhelming pub lie calamity?as a visitation which this aountry great as have been its sins, has not yol deserved, and which we will put forth our most strenuous efforts to avert. Resolved. That wu deprecate sectional issues iu a national canvass, as dangerous to the Union and inju rtous to the public good?that we look with confidence to a whig national administration to remove all causes for such issuoH?and that we will countenance no faction in the whig party, and no coalition with any faction out of it, which shall threaten to array one section of our common country in angry hostility agaiust any other. Ucsolved. That laying aside all regrets for past disappointments?cordially accepting the candidates offered for our support?earnestly desiring the triumph of whig principles, and the good of the country to be thereby secured?we, the whigs of New York city, do pledge to our brethreu in this State and throughout the lTnited Slates, our best endeavors to hurl locofoeotsiu from the hlgbi places of power it has usurped and disgraced so long, and to commit the direction of our public alTairs to true whigs and honest men?and that it shall uot be our, fault if. on iho 4th of March next, our beloved Union has. for Presideut and Vioe President, any other men than /achary Taylor and Millard Killmoro. During the reading of these resolutions, there was the usual quantity of disorderly and tumultuous conduct, but Mr. Raymond's lungs were strong enough to make him heard by the greater portion of those assembled. When about one lialf of them were read, a Taylor fltg was introduced, hearing the inscription, "If we all pull together we can't be beaten." As soon as it was taken to the ground th *re were loud hurrahs and hisses from ihe two factions, and in a few minutes afterwards there was* bustling, and dragging, and pulling fight between some thirty or forty Clay men and Taylorftes, in which, however, no damage was committed except what the tailors coulJ repair.

(Roars of laughter ) Gentlemen I will glvo you one more retaon why I go for General Taylor ; it is beoause he has avowed himself the great opponent of exeoutlve power aud executive Influence. In 1840 Henry Clay declared that the whig* of the Union wore opposed to executive power, and that for twelve years he had warred against executive power and executive usurpation, and it was he who worked tho good old ship the constitution (Loud cheors.) ???.?.

A motion was then made to organize a Clafi meeting, when heavy groans rose from every-purt of the crowd. A set of resolutions were then produced, but as soon as the reading of them commenced, the lanterns were removed, leaving the stand in total dark- I ness, when three more cheers were given for the I "Farmer of Ashland," and three for -General ] Taylor. A speech was called for, when a dirty ; looking hoy about sixteen years of age, dressed in 11 blue sniock, and without coat, hat or shoes, appeared, and said he had a few words to say. lie was most enthusiastic illy received. lie said iip was opposed to General Taylor, because he wanted to make a nigger as good as a white man, anil opposed to the Old Zuck, as because he wanted to go to war with Texas, and wound up hy asking if any one had three cents, he could speak no longer ! without something to wetjus throat. The crowd suddenly became Bgitnted, and a small fight followed, but soon stopped, the combat- ; ants all being 011 one side. The whole, party gra- 1 dually dispersed, cheering and groaning, first for Ttyier, then for Clavjand gathering in small knots in different narts of the street, discussed the proceedings of the evening. The hoys took possession of the stand until the police appeared and cleared them out. Thus closed the great ratification, and attempted organization of the Clay whigs; the whole proceedings partaking of the doings of the palmiest days of Old Tammany.

I nfurmation was riven yesterday to officer Jeffrey and ex-coustable Joicph, that a lot of silver spoons were seen in the possesion of a colored man. by tho natno of Jacob Rlssam, esiding in 114th street, between the 1st atfd 2d avenue. Harlem, bearing the marks of O. W. S S , which wu tscertaiiierl to bo the marks on a lot of silver spoone tolen by aome burglars over fl?e years ago, from the iwelling house of Mr. Oaorge W St urges residing In lilJd street On the circumstances being laid before lu-tice Timpson. n search warrant was Issued In order hi search the negro's house, and tho result wu the Indittg of niue silver tea spoons, seven table spoons, two suit spoons, together with a butcher knife, all jf which were in a very hla"kened condition, from the ong time of having been buried in the earth. On the negro being questioned by the magistrate as to the manner he came In posse slot ef the property, he stated that his daughter, u young girl, was a few days ago. Jigging in a ditch, or bank, near his house, when, on turning over some earth, tlie butter knife was found; ind on diggi ng further, the above lot "f spoons were discovi reJ7 ail in a bunch '1 he officers, on hear inc thin ract. procured a pickaxe and spade, ind went to work digging, at the Fame spot, tuppnslng that a large lot more of silver or other valuable property. was yet to be found; eontlnu i uk to turn up the ground until they had dug a hole big snough to bury an elephant, breaking a spade, bending the pic kaxe, and blistering their bands; and all without <uccess, as the treasure, If deposited there, was still deeper from their view. At last, becoming fatigued, they resigned their job. bringing the negro and the silver spoons to the lower police office. The mystery In 1 this case is. that after the burglars had robbed the house of Mr Sturgos. a portion (possibly the share of me of the robbers) was buried, in order to prevent detection. aud having bceu arrested and sent to the itate prison for some other crime, the secret spot was never discovered until the rapid improvements which ire taking place in that vicinity, were the cause of bringing the hidden treasure to light The old negro s'as discharged by the magistrate, there being n evidence. after the explanation, to warrant his detention Ni ws i rom tiiv.

In vhich they sold to the Culled States the whole of (irand Island, and a strip of land on either side of th* river, 'or the establishing of the United States military poit The terms of the treaty we have not learned, but unlerstand that a fort will be erected opposite the head if (irand Island, on the. south hank, about three >;uarers of a mile from the river.
