Tire IVllmot JProvlao Convention In Kloua i-husetts. in another part of this day's paper will be found it report of the first day's proceedings of the Massachusetts State Convention for the nomination ot candidates for the Presidency and VicePresidency, in opposition to General Cass and General Taylor. It will be seen bv a glance that the spirit which animates the members is one of bitter hostility to ihe nomination of General Taylor, to ihe turiher extension of slave territory, and ju luvor of the AVilinot proviso. it cannot be concealed that this unti-extension of slavery movement, will, unless great care and moderation be exercised, have a most important influence on the institutions and parlies of this country. The latter are almost certain to be deetroyed; but it is to be hoped that all parties will not lose sight of that glorious instrument, the constitution of the United States. It is the first movement of the kind that has token place in this country?this organization of a separate .and independent Northern party on the question of slavery. Mexico nnd the United States. The ratification of the treaty of peace between the United States and Mexico is the commencement of a new e-a in the relations of those two countries. The relations may continue peaceful for h while?for a year, perhaps for a longer, perhaps for a shorter jieriod of time. It was feared by far-seeing statesmen, that the severe chastisement which Mexico has received, and the hard lesson which we have endeavored to teach her, would be of little profit to her. It has been foretold that with the withdrawal of the American army, whatever party consented to a Deuce with this eouiltrv would lie nltm-ked nnrl dp posed by soinc of the military tyrants who have so long cursed that beautiful country, and kept it in turmoil and revolution ever since jhe overthrow of the constitution of 1824. Such predictions, we regret to say, are too well founded. Already the work of revolution has commenced, even before the evacuation of that country by our forces. Paredes, it appears, has engaged in a conspiracy to . upset the existing government, having for his object the downfall and ruin of the government which concluded the recent treaty of peace, ant} the extermination of the men who ratified it, five of the leading peace men having been already as" sassinatcd. Paredes, it will be recollected, was the chieftain who pronounced against and destroyed the government of Herrern because he was in favor of peace with the United States: and if he'succeed in this last attempt, and overthrows the government which concluded the treaty of peace, he may then seek to embroil the two countries in difficulty again, uud thus bring on a second Punic war. It will be seen, therefore, that the difficulties and disasters which were predicted to ensue after the withdrawal of our troops, have occurred sooner than was anticipated: and when or how they will end, there is no telling. Mexico being again divided into factions?one having possession of the government to-day, and another having it to-morrow?it will be a difficult matter for our government to determine which is the legitimate one, and to which to pay the instalments of three millions an. nually, provided by the treaty to he paid to Mexico j as the purchase money of :h<* newly acquired ter1 itories of New Mexico end California. This may involve us for the second time in war with Mexico. Again, if Paredes retain power, he may seek to establish a monarchy in Mexico. A year or two ago, he was in France and Spain, and it was pretty well known there that his object was intrigue with that view. We do not know to what extent these intrigues may have been carried with Louis Philippe, or the Pourbons of Spain; but whether th-y arc intended to be carried into operation or not, it is very certain that there wiiUfl irreat trouble in Mexico, in case he should sreote himself as the head of the government, and perhaps un attempt made to embroil ihe two couutrm* attain in hostility, in case of an election of a peaceable man to the Presidency of the I'nited Suten. We could not tolerate the establishment of a monarchy there, at the head of which any of ihe Bourbon family might be placed. Our determination 011 this matter is fully known to Mexico, having been frequently expressed in our journals and iu our houses of Congress. In whatever way we view the receut revolutionary proceedings in Mexico, we cannot hut see the probability and danger oi tnore trouble, and perhaps another war. With such a probable state of things before us, the iample of the l uited States ought to be careful whom l^iey elect as their ne*i President, so t nt peace can, if possible, be preserved Our next President should be u man of ability, determination, and sound statesmanship?one the o! whose name alone would deter the cont*uipttble military despots of Mexico from again attempting to create difficulty between the two countries. We ure not yet ready to carry on the second Punic war with that country, neither have vv< commenced to digest the large slice of territory which wc acquired by the first. We Want a little tune, energetic as we are, and caunot pos^ ibly swallow up such ail extensive country as Mexico at one meal. General Taylor sjuet such a man. His determination and braveiv are well known to the Mexicans, for he lias 'iven thein many memorable proois of them. Any T^tar* dictator who may be at the head ol the "dm' jptvernmont will be very cautious ubout ^with any thing a Heeling the I'nited :*t ?U I) f Ta; l'ir was oqr Gtoiel Ma "we.lomi wmtld he sufficient to ? crush any such attempt in the bud, it there were any one who might hare the temerity to undertake it. In the meantime, however, our prenent government will be under the neceeeity of acting very decisively towards Mexico, in order to ensure the safety of the American citizens now in Mexico. In regard to the jtrqjtt of the establishment of a monarchy in Mexico, with any of the Bourbon family at the head of it, there is more difficulty in the way than ever, in consequence of the events , that have recently transpired in the old world. Yet there may be a design of putting Montpensier in the position of king of Mexico. If any such attempt he made, it will immediately involve ua in difficulty, with not only Mexico but Spnin; and in such an event, what would be the destiny of the beautiful Island of Cuba? It should then come under the control of the United States, in such a conjunction of matters, and forever after form part | and percl of the United States. j Ocean .Steam Navigation?United States Mail Stcameks.?The time is fast approaching when there will be a fleet of ocean steamships on fhi> Atlantis* un/1 %!!! I-.. ? ' * ??'?wh?iv UHU a avuit, iuai W111 ui; a creuu to the country. The genius and enterprise of our l>eople, on this subject, have at length been awakened, and the consequence is, that, at abort intervals, we report the laying of keels and the launching of steamships which, for beauty, strength, magiytude of tonnage, and sjteed in sailing will compare favorably with those of any country. The first steamship line that was undertaken in this country, wns that to which the Washington and Hermann belong. By the contract which the original proprietors of this line entered into with the United States government, they bound themselves to construct four vessels, and to have them running between New York and Southampton and Bremen by a specified time. This contract also contained a clause permuting the contractors, if they elected so to do, to ply to Havre, in France, on every alternats voyage; but as yet they have not done so, partly, we suppose, because the requisite number of vessels has not been built. .We now learn, that it is the intention of the original contractors to place two additional steamships immediately on this line, and that they will make every other voyage to Havre. This line will then be completed, and a regular and punctual mail correspondence will be maintained, through it, between France, Germany, England and the United States. We have adverted, on a former occasion, to the contract thut had been concluded between othe; parties in New York, for the construction of five splendid vessels to ply regularly between New York and Liverpool. In pursuance thereof, arrangements for building first class vessels were entered into, and we have the pleasure of announcing that, early in November next, two of them will be launched. It is expected that they will be equal, and more likely superior, to any vessel that has yet been built in the United States, in every point of view, and such as will be capable of defying competition from any quarter. No pains or exj>ense will be spared in the construction of the vessels, or in that of the engines by which they will be propelled. Our credit has slightly suffered on uccount of our firat trials in this branch of scientific mechanism, but it will be more than redeemed by the engines which are now 'being constructed for muar magmncenr vessels. rains ana expense are overlooked in their construction, and as an earnest of what may be exnected. we understand they will cost more than any engines that ever were manufactured in the United States, England, or any other country. This is an undoubted fact, and reflects the highest credit on the liberality of thosa concerned. The subject of ocean steam navigation is . uow taken up in a national point of view. A spirit of rivalry is evoked, which will be productive of the most important and beneficial results. It is determined that the United States must, and shall, take the lead, and we will do so, if science and expenditure of money, without regard to limit, can efiect it. Cavk Johnson and the Post Office Depart _ kent.?Cave Johnson and his agents are begin, mng to feel public opinion. His gross mismanage, ment of the post office department, his ridiculous and impudent obstacles to the Southern mail, are doing more against the administration and its reputation than any other matter of the same magnitude connected with men in power. A short tine ago, the post office department published a statement, attempting to explain its ridiculous conduct in its squabble with the Richmond Railroad; a squabble which threw the Southern mail into complete disorganization and delay. In this attempt. Cave Johnson and his agents have the imjiudencc to charge the newspapers which exposed his scandalous conduct, with having been bribed by the railroad above mentioned. This is the last refuge of incompetence, impudence, and atrocious mismanagement. We should not, bowever, be surprised if the country should be placed under the necessity of putting up with all the follies and absurdities of the present Postmaster General, until Mr. Polk himself, and all the bunch of them, are ousted by General Taylor, on the 4th of March next. It is not necessary to enter into (lie minute particulars of the conduct of Cave Johnson ; the public will understand, and act acj cordingly. hie newly-aitointei) french uonsui.-uenelt/u, ' in New Yokk.?This gentleman, M. Simounet, arrived the other day, by the English steamer Hibernia,and took possession of his consulate on Tuesday ! morning; M. De La Forest, the ex-consul, having surrendered his power into his hands. M. Simounet was previously a highly respectable merchant of Paris. He made his fortune by trading with Spain; but, at the epoch ( the last revolution of February, lost a great part of his property by the numerous | failures which were the consequences of that poli; ticm 1 earth .juake. Through M. Ledru-Rollin's influence and friendship, M. Simounet?whose capacity as well as honesty and republican principles ! were greatly appreciated by that member of the provisional government?received his nomination the very morning of the opening of the National A ssembly, when the first men of the revolution surrendered their powers to the deputies elected by the ! national vote. M. Simounet, as an old merchant, ' is said to he perfectly able to render great services to his countrymen; and no doubt his courteous deporttneiu and manners will soon gain him the friendship and confidence of all his countrymen of ' our city, as well as of all Americans connected [ with the French trade. M. Simounet is accompai nied by his son, in the capacity of (live consul. No ! change has yet been made among the pmploytt \ of the French consulate; they will probably all keep i their respective positions. In speaking thus of the new consul of France,we ought not to let the opportunity pass without bearing witness to the invariable urbanity which, for twenty years, characterized M. I)e La Forest, the ex-ConsuI-Ganeral. He leaves his office with honor I to his reputation, and regret among many Amerij can friends. Philosopher < treelky a Barnburner.?Philosopher c.reeley.

He rejoices ut the prospect ahead of orgaiiiztug a Northern party, on the principle contained in the Wilinot proviso, thus avowing himself a disciple ot John Van Btiren, and an opponent of the 8outh.

This, however, is a difficult job; its difficulty arises from the local purposes and political views of those who mix in such assemblages here. The Irish naturalized citizens wield a vast political force at the ballot-box, and politicians will of course endeavor to win this force to their particular parties and dogmas. Speculators, also, who have no other means of living, will mix up with them for the sole purpose of obtaining a livelihood out of the drippings that fall from the contributions.

In reply to your letter, inviting me to attend a meet- 1 ing. the object of which purports to be the sustainment of the Irish people in their strugHo for national independence, and freedom from the yoke of British tyranny and despotism, allow me to assure you that no man ' sympathises more with my oppressed, persecuted, famiue-strieken countrymen than 1 do; but. gentlemen, until there is more unanimity and fraternisation exist- i ing amongst the respective bodies now advocating Irish affairs in this oity, and more care taken of the people's money, I shall keep aloof from any connexion with the present movement It would seem that to be a true friend to Ireland, in this city, is to court abuse from self-interested men, while those whose objects are personal aggrandisement, and a '-share of the loaves and fishes" of life, and who have the tact of imposing 1 upon a too credulous and confiding people, are considered sterling patriots, and receive the unanimous cheers of their hearers. I must also state, that were 1 willing to assist, as I hope I always shall, in the cause of Ireland, yet the present state of my health precludes the possibility of my addressing any public body. With the most ardent hope that Ireland may, ere long, be uuder the guidance of a republican government, I remain, gentlemen, Yours, very respeotfully, 1 EDWARD DOWNES CONNERY. To the South Brooklyn Republican Committee. The position taken here, in connection with these movements of sympathy, and with the manner in which they have been conducted, is the only correct one. No one can doubt the friend- i ship of the American people for the Irish cause; but, as these meetings are now managed, the best i of friendship is turned into improper channels, 1 These meetings are degenerating every day from their original purposes into mere cabals of money j collectors and money expenders, all for their own , benefit. i The cause of Ireland must depend on the Irish. . No country can be much benefited by isolated ' meetings held in this land of general freedom. If ] the Irish, English, or Scotch, or any other i>eople, i mean to secure their rights and privileges, they 1 must rise up spontaneously, aud claim them in the same way as the Americans did in their revolution, and as the French, in their late revolution. have obtained theirs. Th? great evil in Ireland, as well as in Great Britain, is the monopoly of lands and property of all kinds, by the tiiea ......? cuing a few thousand in number; while the population is nearer thirty millions. Reform bills, bills for | the repeal of the union, the charter, and all other measures of change which may include a mo- | narchy and aristocracy, are mere delusions. There can be no general happiness, no gejieral comfort in England, Ireland, or Scotland, until they form a federal republic, like the United States, and have each established a form of government similar to our own, for which they have ample intelligence and sufficient discretion to manage. E no land and Spain.?In the manner in which England has treated the indignity perpetrated towards her by Spain, the wfcrld has profound and sonclusive proof, that the long famed mistress of the seas has fallen from her high estate, and can be spit upon and kicked and cuffed by any nation, j no matter how small or contemptible, which will take the trouble to do it. What a well-merited retribution. The civilized world can have no sympathy for her; and yet it iB unfair that the people, the twenty-five or thirty millions of people, should suffer for the doings of their government. It is that government which brought them into such a disgraceful position; and as long as they submit to their masters, when they have the power, if they only had the will, to shake off their yoke of degradation, they deserve to Buffer. Can it be possible that that great nation, which | ruled the seas, which regulated the commerce and , politics of a world, on whose possessions the sun | never ceases to shine, has reached so low an j abyss of degradation and weakness I One can j hardly believe it; but yet such is the case."

'ir?*e I THE GREAT ANTI-CASS AND TAYLOR WHIG CONVENTION. Movemeiti of the Free Territory Politicians. dCC. dUi. d(C. WuKCESTKis, June 28, 1848. From an early hour this morning, this city has been in continual excitement, owing to the arrival, hour ufter hour, of the different delegations; or, more properly, the self-elected anti-Cass-and-Taylor-nomination-men. The different hotels and places of accommodation were all jam full, and the arrival of Mr. Giddings, of Ohio, seemed to give much confidence and satisfaction. About 9 o'clock a procession of laborers, attached to the Courtmills factories, marched in procession with banners, and, headed by a superior brass band, proceeded to the American Temperance House, and gav? three cheers tor the iion. Mr. Iriddings and Judge Ailen. They next passed the office of the Matsachuults Spy, and gave the editor three cheers, and passed through the city. At lOo'clock, the spacious building known us the City Hall, was jam full?no less than twelve hundred persons being assembled. On motion of Mr. Dk Witt, Samuel Lyman was nominated chairman proteni., und Mr. W. S. Robinson was appointed secretary pro tern. Mr. Kkys moved that a committee of eight be appointed to nominute a president and officers of the meeting; and in proposing the names of the committee. took occasion to stats the object upon which they had met. which was to protest against the course pursued by their delegates in acquiescing in the nomination of Geurnil Taylor at Philadelphia. (Cheers ) The following gentlemen were hereupon nominated by the Committee, who reported Hon. Samuel Hoar, of Concord, President. Hon. David Heard, of Wayland; John Wells, of Chicopa; Hon. Alenson Hamilton, Brookfleld; H P. Waters, Salem; Hon. J. L. Richardson, Medway; Joseph Stevens. Warwick; and Dr. S. G. How, Boston, Vice Presidents. W. S. Robinson, of Lowell; W. A. WRllaco of Woroester; Allen Shepherd, of Ashland, and W. A. Arnold, of Northampton, were nominated Secretaries. The crowd here became so dense that the President was compelled to adjourn the meeting to the commons adjoining, where a large platform was erected, and immediately a rush was made for the door, and several of the delegates were relieved of tho necessity of walking down stairs, as they were borne aloft on the shoulders of the crowd, in their efforts to get out the narrow doorway. After considerable delay the convention organized, and large delegations from Lynn and Boston, soon arrive l in the early special train. They marchod In procession, headed by excellent brass bands, and their appearance created considerable enthusiasm. The Convention heroupon fully organized; when, after Prayer by the Rev. Mr. Smith, of Worcester, The President addressed the Convention:?They had assembled, he Bald, to pronounce upon a great national question. The two great parties who had nominated their respective candidates, did not givo satisfaction to their respective constituencies. This feeling had extended itself, and would be found more apparent as the canvass went along. Who was. he would ask. the candidate presented by the whig party ? General Taylor. He supposed he whs a frank, plain, soldier, who had devoted himself to the science of human butchery (Sensation and laughter.) Was this the proper qualification for a President of this great republic f Was it sufficient to be a brave, frank soldier, to qualify a man for the Presidency ! He would ask. had Massachusetts a disposition to feel satisfied with ]Ualiflcatlons such as these ? ("No, no.") Massachusetts occupied a prominent position in the Union?and what had the" gained by this war, in which General Taylor was engaged ? Massachusetts should vote, and would vote for no man who was in favor of extending the area of slavery. (Cheers ) This had been declared aver and over again. What assembly in Massachusetts that bad revoked this declaration ? This declaration was made over and over again in this State, and General Tayler was elected for every State in this Union, by the aotion of the Philadelphia Convention. He was deceiving himself and deceiving others. The South say he is safe on the Wilmot proviso. The whigs and democrats of the South support him on this ground ?and on this ground alone. There was no obscure, intricate principle to settle. Will you relinquish your established principles ? your conscientious scruples? your love of right ? ("No, no.") If you do not. your ......... ?j- ?in i.* ? i?,? a worse man (Laughter.) If you do not protest against this, you will surrender your rights and your privileges It is said that they were fond in America, of military display. It remained for them to decide the question. It vras not his purpose to occupy their time longer. He felt honored at their placing him in the proud position he occupied; and as they were all lovers of liberty, without liberty they could not express themselves, and liberty and slavery wore incompatible. (Cheering ) The Hon. Mr. Phillips proposed that a committee of seven be appointed to propose an address and draft resolutions. i n? lotiwntug were Hereupon appointed Hon. Mr. Phillips, of Salem; Messrs. Hopkins. Northampton; Alvard. Greenfield; Fisher, Medway; Bangs. Springfield; Spooner. Boston; Earle, Worcester, and the President was added. A committee to nominate a State committee were here selected, consisting of Messrs. Lyman, Dewitt, Hoar. Bird. Talman. and E G. Samson. Mr. Sumner read a letter of apology from Hon. John G. Palfray, M. C. 4th district Massachusetts. Mr. Eldridce, of Boston read the proceedings of a meeting held in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, in favor of the general objects of the Convention. Upon which tho President read a resolution of thanks to the gentlemen who had exerted themselves in gutting up the Convention. The resolution was vohomently applauded, and further delegations began to arrive from different parts of the State. Several letters were read from members of Congress, and leading friends of the new party, expressive of the unqualified dissent of the writs from tho nomination of General Taylor, and their determined opposition to the further spread of slavery throughout tne Union. Tho reading of the letters elicited bursts of applause. The Honorable C. Allen was here introduced and addressed the Convention. The people of Massachusetts. he said, met to put down slavery for ever. (Cheers.) The day was beautiful, presenting a glorious sun?a more glorious sun than the sun of Austerlitz. or the famous " October sun of Virginia." (Laughter and cheers.) Slavery was dead. Cries o( ' aye and burled,"?laughter.) The men of Massachusetts came forward to start anew on that day. and what had been done could be done in every county and State in the Union. Go to the country, he would tell the people, and present the question of free territory. not with the tricks of a party, but boldly and fairly. It was as easy to induce the people in the free States to act in favor of free torritory. as to make them would reaffirm what hn had already often Raid on the subject. and they would yet nil sea the stupendous fraud that was practised at rhlladelpbia. (Hear, hear ) Wait not for tho politician, but go to the people. (Cheers.) They wanted none but those whose hearts were with them, and they would come (Cheers ) They soon would tied that tho politicians all wonld come. The people were with them (cheers), the orators were with then), and the statesmen were with them. (Cheers) Mr. Si-mvkb read a lctte: of apology from the Hon. J. R Williams, of Michigan, concurring in the objects of the Conrcntion. The Hon. Mr. Wilso* next addressed the Convention. He felt he had confidence in the people el Massachusetts?that they would stand by their principles. as laid down in 1798 (Cheers.) They wished freedom and union to prevail in the same spirit as that in which the Union was established. General Tayloi was the nominee of the slave power of the country, and those who nominated him relied upon Southern democracy to support him. (Hear, hear ) Massachusetts would not fear to stand up and alone In this matter. (Cheers ) It bad been said that Judge \H?n and himself had been great eowards at the ? "nven tlon.

The opposition to the nomination of General j Taylor appears to be the prevailing and unanimous opinion. As 1 close my letter, tbo question on the ad- j dress has been taken, and carried unanimously. The following resolutions were hereupon adopted unanimously;? 1 Whereas, the whlgs of Massachusetts, in their con- j vention of the 'JUth of September 1847, unanimously I adopted, among other resolutions, tho following :? ! 'Resolved, That if tho war shall be prosecuted to the Mini suqjuxauou or uufuieuioermeni. 01 Mexico, me whigs of Massachusetts now declare, and put this declaration of their purpose on reeord, that Massachusetts will never consent that American territory, however acquired, shall become a part of the Amur ean Union, unless on the unalteiable condition that "there shall be neither slavery nor Involuntary servitude therein, otherwise than in the punishment of crime " ''Resolved, That in making this declaration of her purpose, Massadhusetts announces no new principle of action in regard to her sister States, and makes no new application of principles already acknowledged. She merely States tbegrtal An.erluan principle embodied in our Declaration of I ndepeudenoe?the political equality of persons in the oivil State?the principle adopted in tha,iegis)ation of the States under the confederation, and sanctioned by the constitution, ia the admission of all tho new States formed from tho ouly territory belonging to the Union at the adoption of the constitution. it is, in short, the imperishable principle set forth in the ever memorable ordinance of 1787, which has for more than half a century been the fundamental laws of human liberty to the great valley of the lakes, the Ohio and the Mississippi, with what brilliant success and with what unparalleled results, let the great and growing States or Ohio, iudiaua Illinois, .Vlichigau, and Wisconsin answer and declare.'' And whereas, a portion of the wliigs have since that time nominated candidates for the Presidency and Vice Presidency, without paying the smallest regard to the principles herein declared, and even ventured to stitle the discussion of tho same in their national convention? Resolved, That we. the people of Massachusetts, reaffirm the said declarations as the voice of the Commonwealth, and whoever else may desgrt or botray. we will inflexibly adhere to the principles of freedom thereiu declared as the ark of our pMlticol salvation. And, therefore, as a necessary consequence, Resolved, That we. the people of Massachusetts, will support no men as candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, but those who are known by their acts or declared opinions to be opposed to the extension of slavery. Resolved, That this convention is desirous of expressing its unqualified approbation of the course pursued by John P. Hale, in the Senate of tho United States; that it applauds the fidelity, the conscientious inflexibility, and the manly firmness. with which he has discharged his duty in debate, and by all the votes which he has given upon the various questions relating to slavery,the Mexican war, and the annexation of foreign territory; and that it relies with hope aud confidence upon his continued services wherever they may be most effectual in the great cause of freedom and humanity. Resolved, That this convention deems itself greatly horored by the presence of Joshua K. Uiddings, of Ohio ; and that it desires to express the universal con- j viotion of the opponents of slavery throughout the j free States, that there is no man living by whom tho ] great cause which they have at heart has been *? effectively sustained, or t o whom, at this critical moment, ^ in view of ail that can be required of ability, and dls- f cretion, and firmness, It can be more safely entrusted. Resolved, That this convention tenders to Charits ' Allen and Henry Wilson, the warmest thanks for the fidelity, consistency, decision, and boldness with which they performed their duty as delegate* from Massaohuset^p to the national whig convention; that this convention herebv ratifies thHir acta, and assures them . confidently that their services will be held in grateful and proud remembrance by the people of Massachusetts Resolved, That Massachusetts wears no chains, and spurns all bribes; that Massachusetts goes now, aud will over go, for free soil and free men. for free lips and a free press, for a free land and a free world.

Itl MUDfltJlTlCO I lie 101lowing: Resolved, That the power to prohibit the introduction of slavery into the territories of the llni'cd States is clearly delegated to Congress by the Constitution; and that the highest considerations of patriotism, tho strongest sontimeuts of justiee and humanity, and a proper respect for the enlightened opinion of mankind, require that this power should be exercised in favor of freedom. > Resolved. That in view of the importance and neeesi sity of a full discussion of the great question of the ; day. we recommend to our friends throughout the i State, the establishment in every town and school dis- ( I trict of freedom leagues for the dissemination of free I principles, and of alike central league for the county, for the dissemination of sound opinion on those subjects. by personal discussion and cheap publications. Resolved, That the People's Convention of Massachusetts approve and affirm said resoluions. and earnestly recommend the measures suggested to the whole people of the commonwealth. Resolved, That this convention regards with deep interest the position assumed by the democratic party of the State of New York, as represented by the conven1 tion recently held In Utica; that it applands the oarI noetnese and unanimity with which the principle of I free territory has been incorporated into the basis of I their organization; that it commends the wisdom and | manliness which have bee? exhibited by .Mr. Van Bit, i ren in his correspondence upon this subject; and that i it anticipates the most satisfactory results from the efI feet of its proceedings upon all true democrats through- ! out the free States, who are prepared to act together in ( I prohibiting the extension of slavery. | Resolved, That the language of Henry Clay, which I baa been so often echoed by the whig party, is a rebuke I of this same party for its nomination of (General TayI lor:?" If, Indeed, [said Mr. Clay.] we have incurred the Divine displeasure, and if it be necessary to chas1 I tlso this people with a rod of vengeance, I would hum bly prostrate myself before Him. and implore Him. in 1 i His mercy, to visit our favored land with war. with pesI tilence. with famine, with any other scourge tbanmili; tary rule, ar a blind and heedless enthusiasm for mere 1 I military renown." Another resolution was adopted, directing Daniel : Webster to support the doctrine of the free States in i the Senate, and to oppose slavery ia every shape The resolution also approved of the course of vlr Webster, for not supporting the nomination of <ien. Taylor. Mr. (iiDoiNos, of Ohio, is now, (dX o'uiook. P M..) making a strong anti-slavery speech, amid bursts of applause and enthusiasm.
