It is not to be disguised, that with many of our Southern brethren, the sentiment is quit* common, that the people of the free States are more anxious to enjoy thj honors and emoluments of office, than to maintain with dignity and spirit, their equal rights. The South having enjoyed, almost exclusively, the control of the federal government, from the date of its existence, it ha* been, for the most part, the oxclu this, doubtless. bu greatly contributed to tbi* scnttui. ut. If, from these. or any other causes, the people of the free States have suffered in the estimation of the Sonth. or of tbe world, the time has now oome, when they owe it to themselves, and to the nation, to redeem their oharacter from this reproach. Both the late political parties hare the opportunity to do, and are called upon to do this ; they may unite in the effort without any abandonment of their distinetKe principles Tbe old issues, which for the last twenty years hare divided them, are now settled or set aside; a new issue has been presented in which all minor differences? and in which differences that under other circumstances would be important?are merged and swallowed up. It Is important too, that this effort should now he made, and that, if possible, It should be made to succeed. Resist the beginnlng, is the inaxim of political not less than of m ral science. This is the first time since the formation of the government, that the slave power, while relaiuing its distinct political associations with the two great national parties, has been able to seize and to sway, the sceptres of each. If the people of the free States understand and perform their duty, such an exhibition will never again be witnessed. DUTY OF NEW YORK. Another question iuvotved in this issue, as presented to the democracy of New York, though personal to them, is soarcely less Important. No one who Is cowardly, time serving, or timid, can b? respected by his fellow men In proportion as he fails in manly independence. will he be visited with uuiversal dis-esteem and oonteuipt. Whit is true of individuals, is true of the masses Tbe community which has not spirit enough to maintain its rights of opinion, of utterance and of action?which can give up at tbe dictation of others, its convictions of truth and duty; which can now be coaxed or now driven into the abandonment of principle ; which can sacrifice to a present expediency the interests of the future, and sell its birthright for a mess of pottage?such a community may, indeed, prosper for a season in the pursuits of traffic or the scramble for patronage; but its infidelity to the cause of truth and the seu'iment of honor, will soou ue niiiowro oy a jo? an a terrible retribution When it wins for itself the name of a people without^setf-respect.. how can it command the respect of other States? Of whatnlne Is national wealth wtbont national honor? Of what avail to Kgypt was the fertility of its soil, or the magnificence of its mouument*. when onoe by its effeminacy and its rices, it had prepared itself for the fearful doom by which it had been written down o? " the basest of the kingdoms ?" The duty of New York in the present crisis la. therefore. plain and imperatire Independently of the interest common to them with others, the democracy of our State are summoned, by special motives, to take the lead in determined and uncompromising hostility to the demands and the measures of the slave power. It has insolently sported with our rights, traduced our fame, and wounded our honor. This, of Itself, would be sufficient cause for resistance; for in the language.not less just than beautiful, in its application to the public honor, of the greatest of poets? " Rightly to be groat, If not to stir without great argument. Hut grratly to find quarrel in a straw. When honor's at tho stake." It was in this temper, that the sages and patriots of our ci untry's heroic age. perilled life and all life's blessing" in the revolutionary conflict it was not merely the taxes imposed by a body in which they were not represented, against which they rebelled To the iujury inflicted by British laws, there was added the insulting pretension incorporated in them, that tho parliament had the right to hind the colonies in all cases whatsoever. So long as this averment eontiuued in the record, no modification or repe tl of the obnoxious taxes could satisfy the free spirit ef our ancestors. We should be unworthy of such a lineage?we should be unlit to dwell within a State distinguished above others, by its early and constant adhesion to the principles of democratic liberty; a State, which furnished in the persons of Leisler and Melbourne, tho first martyrs of this continent, to the cause of freedom?a State which boasts among its sons of its Clintons, its Jay. its Livingstons, its Tompkins?a State which contains the ashes of Montgomery, the monument of Kumet, and the grave of Lawrence?a State which, for their whole active lives, was the abode of Alexander Hamilton and of Silas Wright?we should dishonor its soil and bring reproach upon its name, were we so lost to vie. tue and to manly thought, as tamely to receive from the hand* of our insulters the yoke they had prepared for ourselves and our posterity. In the throe* and *pa*m* with which the slave power labor* to perpetuate it* ascendancy, nothing is more common than the threat to dissolve or depart from the Union. unless the free States yield to its Ueuianrfe Such threat* will produce no effect on the democracy of New Vork. Not that we Jo not love the Union:? ' not that we should not shudder at the possibitfty of its i dissolution. We prise it a* above all price. We have j never attempted. w? will not be provoked, to calculate " its value We shall never enter on so chimerical, so 1 unpatriotic a task. No arithmetic, known to us. is t adequate to reckon up the worth, of even a thousandth part of the golden chain whteh bind* together, in per petual bonds, the States of this confederacy. , But when we listen to the vainglorious boasting*, the splenetic ebulitions of the hot-headed and hot-blooded leaders, who assume to speak for the entire South, in many cases, doubtless, with just as much authority a* they assume to dictate to the North; we are sometime* compelled to*ask ourselves, what would be the North? what, especially, would be New Vork. If the folly and madness of the Southern slave power should really break up this ancient and long-cherisned union of the States? New York, with a territory possessing boundless advantages for foreign and internal trade; with a temperate and healthful sky. and with extensive districts of fertile soils: with abundant supplies of salt and iron, and peculiar facilities of every kinu of manufacturing industry; with a population greater now than that uf England at the era ef Americas colonisation, and _which may well be lncrea*ed KjifcMLJirr borders to ^J_L. U? four fines it* preseut number; with severaiTWttfcJ'L^i Internal trade, numbering, respectively, from twenty eft j then sand (nhnitllantl' and towerinif above I thrra all. in queenly pride. the ? immercial metropolis of ttai* hemisphere: with a foreign commerce that bring* to the federal government more than one-third of its revenue* by impost*; with these resource* in possession and in prospect, what shall hinder her. if the nolliflers of the constitution and the abolitionists of freedom?the blind leaders of the blind?shall by accident or design, drive on their followers to the sin and filly of secession, from being and remaining the chief of the new republics, in'* which the American States will then be parcelled out? But New V'ork has no such false ambition. She will never shoot, madly from the sphere'' in which faith and duty bind her She is content to move la the orbit they have marked. She pauses not to enquire whether she receives as much as she bestows ; still less to ask whether she might shine uiore brightly in a pathway of her own In love and loyalty to the Union she finds her purest joy?a joy wlpch she would not exchange for the gratification of a selfish aggrandisement. or the spoils of victory, poorly purchased with the sacrifice of principle. However adverse inay be the signs, however unpropitlous the omens, she will cling forever to the Union; nor will she abandon the hope that reason will, ere long, resume her sway, and justice assert her power in the minds of her sisters of the South When this consummation, so devoutly to be wished for shall have come, onr Southern brethren, we are sure, will again delight to tread with us the path of civic dnty and of honorable fame In the interval be it long or be it abort, th* people of New York will quit themselves like men ; for in so doing they will not only beet preserve their interests and their honor, but beat seeure the respect of their adversaries. They will net worthf of those who fell under the eye of Washington. on the heights of Long Island?of those who conquered with Gate* and Schuyler, on the plaius of Saratoga. SAMUEL YOUNG, President.

I have long been the friend, personally as well as politically, of Mr. Van Buren; and, under other circumstance.. would be proud to have my name aasociated with his in anv way ; but the acceptance of this nomination is impossiole, and I have to request the mem here of the Convention and the public, to receive this declination as my answer, and to excuse this mode of making it?being the only m"de which the want of a communication from the Convention leaves open to me ?

Tke Harnburnera?Tkelr Position. Tkelr Lail Proiiunclamento. The movement commenced by the barnburners of this State being one of great im|?ortance in the present state of the country and of parties, we have spared no pains or trouble in fully explaining it in the columns of this journal. We accordingly published reports of John Van Buren's speeches, on several occasions: ex-President Van Ttnr??n'H Iptter to the Utica Convention; a full report of the proceedings and nominations of that convention; and to-day, we publish in our columns, the pronunciamtnto of that convention, to all good and true barnburners, in this and all other States, on the earth, over the earth, and in the waters under the earth?out of which it is supposed Mr. Van Buren has been fisned by some of the faithful, with a hook baited with the Presidency. This pronunriamento is a curious and remarkable document. It embraces, in full, the principles advocated by the new party called barnburners, and contains a clear exposition of their doctrines and position. It purports to explain the causes that compelled them to hoist a separate standard, repudiate the proceedings of the Baltimore Convention, and nominate candidates of their own for the Presidency and Vice Presidency. It is from the pen of the Hon. Benjamin F. Butler, or Citizen Butler, as he has been dubbed by the new party. The opinions and views promulgated in it, attract a prodigious deal of attention, and are looked upon as of great importance in this part of the country, and soon will receive equal attention in other parts of the Union, especially in the North and East. The importance ol the movement, however, is much overrated, in consequence of Mr. Van Buren's personal connection with it, and from the fact ot his being nominated as the candidate of that party. This, however, is the smallest feature about it. It has, in fact, given importance to him, and not he to it. This attempt, on the platform of the Wilmot proviso, and ultimately to embody the whole anti-slavery sentiment of the North, has given to Mr. Van Buren person ally an importance which lie does not deserve, and a degree of consequence?a dangerous consequence?which he has npver heretofore possessed in any of the various positions which he has been placed in before the country. It is like digging him out of the retirement of Lindenwald, as geologists dig beneath the earth for some curious and extraordinary fossil remain, to attract the notice of philosophers and speculators. It is like excavating the mountains for saltpetre and sulphur, to furnish materials for a general explosion of a continent. And why all this importance to Mr. Van Burenl As a man, he is utterly destitute of public principle of any kind. For a lonir lie nod of his life lie occupied a bold and manly Southern ground on the slavery question, and he never saw or acknowledged. any immoral tendency in that position, until he was defeated by Southern influence, and restored to his private residence on the banks of the Hudson river, as one whose public life was forever finished and sealed up. But he h is changed that position; and from a knowledge of the circumstances, and of his past history, together with the course wnicn ne is now pursuing, me conclusion is irresistible tbat he has meditated it ever since his defeat in 1844, and on the nomination being again tendered to him in 1848. AU the letters which have come from him, and all the developements which have been made, within the last two years, show that he held himself in reserve for the nomination in Baltimore; and it being withheld from him, and given to anoibfr sinl pular man^-Mr. Van Buren, with his personal a#tffTical friends, has thrown himself into this new movement?this terrible current, this dangerous rapid?combining, as it does, all the moral and immoral sentiment, floating through the Northern States, in hostility to the slavery institutions of the South. He and his party have, indeed, planted themselves on the principle contained in the Wilmot proviso, as a fulcrum on which to use their lever; bat that is all nonsense?a mere bagatelle?albeit there is so much stress laid upon it in their jeurnals, their speeches, tiieir letters, and in the proceedings of the convention at Utica. It amounts to one thing only, and that is, to form a great Northern party, for the first time in the histo ry of the country, in opposition to the Southern States, on the institution of slavery. This movement acquires greater force, and non interest, and additional danger, from the fact tha the Southern members of Congress, of both of th( old parties, assume a position directly opposite t< that assumed by the barnburners. They tuke theii ground broadly on the platform of slavery, and 01 its extension to the new territory acquired fron Mexico by the treaty which has recently been rati fied. Mr. Calhoun boldly, decidedly and deter minedly marks out this policy, and is followed ii the same strain by Mr. Berrien, of Georgia, wh< seldom chimes in with Mr. Calhoun. He likewisi lakes hold, plain Southern ground, openly ant nhnve-hoard. Vet Mr. Berrien is a whi?. and ; I supporter of General Taylor's nomination. In ad dition to this, we find that the discontented journali in this region of the country, which have hereto fore been in favor of General Cass, have repudia ted him, and are assuming the position taken bj this Northern party, which is being organized 01 anti-slavery ground. The Tribune, heretofore i leading whig journal, jumps into the new move inent with ecslacy, rejoices that the question o slavery has at length come up, and that New Yorl litis uttered her sentiments through Mr. Dix. It i probable, therefore, that the discontented whigs o New York, with the odds and ends of all partie which entertain feelings of hostility to the South will unite in the Northern movement, and organiz a vast and terrible party on anti-slavery principles a ground of opposition that may lead to unuttera ble danger to the country at large. The convention of the discontented whigs at Wot cester, has evolved a new feeling on the subject and the applause and ehouts in favor ofMr. Vai Buren, and of the position which he has taker ! may be looked upon as a foregone conclusion, thr there will be a vast accession of force to thi ; movement from Msssachussetts and other East , ern and Northern States. The course of this new movement is onward. J general convention of the Northern States, entei turning common feelings of hostility to the South is to assemble at liuffilo, on the ninth of August and it is probable that the nominations mads a Utica will be confirmed by it, and the flag of anti slavery be added to that of th? Wilmot proviso * TWimifht land to a oAflaaatratM* of aw* and danfaroua party, calculated not only to defatf and , paralyae Goaeral Caw, take away hit atrength and annihilate hi* hopes, but eater into competition with those conservatives of all kinds who have been forming themselves into a party for the support of General Taylor. ' In regard to the subject of slavery in Oregon, t that will, no doubt, be settled during the present session of Congress, by the adoption of the . Missouri compromise line, but that will have no influence on New Mexico and California, the ? territory of which is as well adapted for slavery as the soil of Virginia or Louisiana. This move[ ment will still go on. The question ot abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia will be adopti ed. Every effort will be made to defeat the enta. blishment of slavery in the new territories, and if unsuccessful, the new party will organize anew, make further attempts, and if possible procure the rarutol nf anir lawn tknt maw La ma/la Cav thaf nnr. ?v- I'V u> vi uaij iutto inai IIIUy uc iuau< 1VI inai j'ui 1 poae. Thus the movement may go on from time to j time, and if successful, will finally end in hedging the slave States in with legislation in despite of the compromises of the constitution, and perhaps the dissolution of the confederacy as it is at present organized. General Pillow and his Defence.?We have t received a pamphlet, containing a defence of General Pillow, against the charges made against hiin i by General Scott, and tried at the recent courtmartial. This defence puts altogether a different complexion on the Pillow case, as it is called throughout the country. Tndeed the recent court" martial has disclosed facts and evidence enough to satisfy*any reasonable man that the general officers of the American army in Mexico, have been more indebted to the prudence, skill and bravery of the rank and file, for their success, than to their own skill or bravery in the field. General Scott is no doubt a brave man, but the evidence given at the court-martial, and a perusal of th^ evidence and defence of General Pillow, show beyond the possibility of a doubt, that General Scott was committing the same breaches, and the same violation of the rules of war, which he charged against Generals Pillow and Worth. There ought to be a distinc tion made between the oonduct of many of the general officers in the Mexican war. Generals Taylor, Wool, Quitman, Shields and Smith, do not belong to the same category of noisy, quarrelsome military leaders, with which some of the others are to be ranged. We want to see the whole of the evidence in the recent court-martial collected together, including the journals of the subalterns, and many of the intelligent rank and hie, before we can ascertain who have been the real and undoubted heroes of the brilliant conquest of Mexico. General Pillow, no doubt, proves that he has been <s much sinned against as sinning, in some of his efforts to blow his own trumpet in a moderate way. No man can, however, rise from a perusal of this defence, without believing that General Pillow has much more merit and magnanimity than he bus received credit for. Vkry] Funny?We give the annexed as we received it, as a very curious document:? At a meeting of the Democratic Republican General Committee, on Tuesday evening, June 28tli, It was on motion, made and seconded, Resolved, That the secretary be direotnd to call the roll of the committee, beginning at the First,and ending at tho Kgbteenth wards, and that the following question be put to each member: "Are you in favor of Lewis Cass, for President, and William O. Butler, for Vice President ?" The following members voted in the affirmative : Thomas Maloncy. P. G. Maloney, Hart, Fallon, Brennan, Thompson, Haskins, Delevan, Broderick, Coneley, Reed, Smith, Gage, Feeks, McDonald, Dunn, Buckley, and Camp. The following members gave the answers annexed to their names :? Mr. Rynders?" Would vote as he pleased when the time come*." Mr. Purser?" Denied the authority of the committee ta put such questions." Mr. Thorn?-' Denies the right, and will not an Mr. Dennis?" Declines to rote.'' Mr. Shields?l; Doubts the right." Mr. McOljn?" Being opposed to slavery, will vote for Van Bnren and Dodge ." The Chairman, Mr. MeClay. having voted in the negative, explained by stating ho alluded to Mr. Cass, and not to Mr. Butler, whom he did not know, ing members were absent Messrs Lawrence, Blair. Dimond. Sloneall. J. V. Fowler. Fletcher. Rose, Allen. Tillou. Glasier, Compton, Smith, Hatfield. Kelly, Williams, Morrell, McCaity. Downing. Raffertjr. Astor, Sisco, Cochran, Sedgewlck.

There will scarcely be a politician in the land in three months, who will have it in his power to tell where he stands, or who he will vote for. Tremor amono the Old Hunkers.?The friends of General Cass are in a terrible condition?almost frightened to death.

They call him the greatest traitor, a recreant, a demagogue, a chief conspirator, a Cain, a sad example of retributive justice, and a lasting example of the righteous puuLliment of an indignantion. All this is very fine, and very classical. Some of it is true?some not. Sham Intellioknck from Europe.?A cotempcrary down town has made a great noise about certain important telegraphic intelligence, three or four hours later irom London, received by tele1 graph at Liverpool, before the sailing of the steamship, and published here, in double columns, in 1 large capitals, stark Blaring mad. All this pretence is sham and humbug. On no occasion has any later intelligence been published in any journal than what has appeared in our columns. Even Wilmer dr Smith's Liverpool Timet, which makes no extraordinary pretensions to the use of thunder and lightning, gets as late intelligence, and sometimes later and more accurate news, than 'he journal in question. Americans Abroad.?We learn that Silas E. Burrows, Esq., of this city, sailed yesterday in his yacht, the Patapsco, for St. Petersburgh, Russia. He is bearer of despatches from the State department to our minister at the court of the Czar. It is the intention of Mr. B., we understand, to visit hp nrmpinnl nnrt* nil lhp llalfin. Kpftirp hi* rpfnm to the United .States. This will be the first trip of an American gentleman across the Atlantic in a pleasure yacht. Mad Doqs?Hydrophobia.?We have heard of more deaths by hydrophobia, within a month or six weeks of this year, than we ever knew within a similar period. Will not the Mayor let losse the dog-killers 1 Every dog found at large should be ' instantly killed. It would be far better that all the ' curs in the city should be destroyed than that one < human life should be lost. It is really true that " something should be done; and wc hope and trust * that our present worthy Mayor will take the matter N in hand immediately. Stkamsiiip Unitko Statks.?Captain Norton, of e the ship Vandalia, from Liverpool, arrived on ' Wednesday, reports seeing a large American steamer standing east, under sail and steam, on Tuefday, 13th instant, at five o'clock, A. M., lat. 43 18, Ion. 55. From the appearance and position "' of the vessel there is no doubt she was the United n States, which left this port on Saturday, 10th, at '' five o'clock, P. M. She had made 810 miles in " sixty hours, being fourteen miles per hour. I- Sot.tifrri* Steamships.?'Two of our splendid Southern steamers will leave this afternoon for the \ South. The Crescent City, Capt. Stoddard, for r- Havana and New Orleans; and the Northerner, i, Capt. Budd, for Charleston, start from the same t, pier, No. 4 North River, at 4 o'clock, for their reit spective destinations. As both are fast vessels, and great favorites with the public, their departure, i. this afternoon, will be somewhat interesting. ffcMMaal tfttnai* fiewati Tntni ,-Tbd Hrj literestlg| bftatfIt Uu "Hag Ptofcv of Paris,?? tu repeated lut iruli to ft taty fall ktlH and We w?r? glad that tt wweo, ft it iraft Mr*.

At the Bowery they know how to give thia kind of drama with effect, and the scenery properties, he., were all got up in moat admirable style. Mr. Marshall, as Father Jean, the honest old rag picker, performed excellently; the seenes in Marie:s apartment were well managed, and the way Mr. M. played norse, with the baby, amnsed the house mightily. Miss Taylor, as Marie Diddier, is nightly a plauded; she is really a most admirable actress, and has a most successful career before her. The performances this evening will bo tor the benefit of Mr. C. W. Clarke. Thia favorite young actor took a benefit a short time ago; but from various ciroumstanoes which unfortunately coneurred, several disappointments took place, and bis benefit was far from a good one. Mr. Hamblin, with his accustomed generosity, has offered him another one: and aecordingly it .111 anmo AfP thieowenlno Mw f H Cnoii k..e tcered his services, and will appear as Lucius Junius Brutus, in the tragedy of 11 Brutus.''

In the last piece Mr. Marshall, and most of the company will appear. Niblo's, A'Tok Place.?A numerous and fashionable audienoe were present here last evening, when the VIennolse Children, in two of their favorite dances, allotted the most rapturous applause. In the " Pas des Amourettes," they were particularly effective, and went through this brilliant divsrtisement with much spirit and animation. The laughable piece, in one act' entitled " Sketches in India," elicited much mirth among the audience. Tom Tabe, by Walcott, kept the audience convulsed with laughter, and was welt sustained. The attractions put forth at this splendid and fashionable theatre, draw vast crowds nightly, and preparations are already being made, on a grand scale, for the Fourth of July, when twogrand entertainments will be given in the afternoon and evening, in which the charming little Viennolse children will appear in a seleet'.on of their most superb dances. It should be mm umbered hv their mim*rmin rtu.tr fin* and admirer* that their engagement is about to clone in New York

within a few days. Those who wish to take a parting look at their little favorites, will, doubtless, avail themselves of the opportunity presented during the remaining few days of their engagement. Broadway Theatre. ? The celebrated tragedy of "Virginius," by Sheridan Knowles.was given last night, for the benefit of Mr. Vache, who had ohoten the pert of Dentatns, and acquitted himself with great spirit and histrionic eiTect. The esteemed American tragedian, Mr. Scott, displayed his talent in the difficult role of Virginius, in which he personified to perfection all the different sentiments which rendered immortal the old Roman hero. Miss Wallack, as Virginia, made a deep impression upon the audience. Her fine demeanor. her bewitching voice, and her chaste acting, are irreproachable. The particular talent of Miss Fanny is, to understand perfectly well the part she has to play. This evening is announced as Tioket Night; and we hope the polite door and box keepers will be rewarded for their urbanity with a full house. The MonEiaisir ballet company are busily engaged at their rcearsala and will appear on the 6th of this month in the great oriental ballet, " VJilmet." No doubt these deserving and highly talented dancers will meet with success. Chatham Theatre.?Irish wit and New York life are the attractions at this house, and prove to be strong ones, as it Is filled every evening. Mr. Chanfrau plays Mose with as muoh raciness as ever, and Barney Williams is now aoknowedged to be one of our best Irish comedians?his various personations are all excellent, and we must compliment him on the advance he is making in public favor. Last evening Mrs. George Jones took her benefit?she is a capital actress and a valuable member of the oompany. To-night Mr. H. P. Grattan and B. Williams will appear together in the ' Rebel cbUf " ' New York as it is" will be performed for the last time, and tbe" irisb Tutu*" will wind ud the evening's bill. On Monday the famous piece of -'A Glance at New York" will be produced; Mose, Mr. Cbanfrau; Lize, that established New York favorite. Miss Emily Mestayer. Castle Garden.?-The very great patronage which this beautiful place of resort is receiving, is a fitting reward for the enterprise and exertions of Messrs.

Dramatic and musical performances of the first class, are nightly given by the talented artists whom they engage. To-night, for instance, besides two excellent farces, the Hauser Family will give a Tyrolean Concert, consisting of many of their most beautiful songs, and we can fancy no more delightful place of resort during these piping times of heat, than an evening at the Garden. To-morrow evening the usual Sunday concert will be given. The garden is open through the day for promenade, at a mere nominal sum for admittance.

Tabernacle?Seevermarkische.?The fifth concert of this inimitable band came off last evening, before a very respectable audience. The music was of tlie choicest description, and selected from the most eminent oomDosers. The first piece, a Grand March, by Gungl. was ably performed, as was also a concert overture, by Kalliwooa The Burlington waits, by Labltzky, was truly inspiriting, and the terzetto, from '-Marie Stuart." oomposed by Donizetti, was rendered with a precision of Intonation which drew down reoeated cheers. The Redoute Quadrille, by Strauss, is a beautiful composition, and was executed with great taste and sweetness of tone. Next came the touching, exciting and plaintive Styrian dances, oalled " Sounds from Home." Although the music of this piece is more familiar to the ears of the performers and those of their country, yet there is something so plaintive, so melodious, soul-Inspiring, and patriotic in every bar. that the sweet recollection* of home, and associations of the dearest character, are called forth, as It wcro, into a soene of reality. The execution of this morcr.au wae followed by another of no less quality, a pot pourri. or combination of the rarest gems from the great composers of the day. The overture to " Zampa." was handled lu"4 Easterly manner, and the waits, by Lanner, called The Dancing ofttre IV'tehes.'' was so bewitching that we, ourselves, thought we were vanishing thin air, and mingling in the masy dance of Peris and other unearthly inhabitants. Christy's Minstrels will give two entertainments to-day, vis., at 3 and 8, P. M. These singers have so firmly established their reputation, *and are so universally known, that we need only say that visiters to their concerts will find them as entertaining as ever. Banvard's Panorama will soon close, and it Is uncertain when it will be brought back again to New York?perhaps never. It is always well to seise present opportunities, therefore those who have not as yet visited it had bettor do so at onao. They will be more pleased than they ean imagine. There is so much originality ; and excellence about this picture that It can be seon twenty times without palling on the taste. To-day it will be exhibited twice, vis . at 3 and 8. P. M. Mr. Clark*, one of the stock aotors of the Bowery theatre, whose late benefit was a failure, in consequence ef the change a' performance, has been granted, in the kindest manner, by Mr llamblin, another benefit night, which oomes off this evening Mr. C. is very long connected with the Bowery, and is a great favorite. and it is hoped his friends will use every exertion to give him a bumper. Mr. Gkoroe Vardeniioff.?Wc are informed that this distinguished actor leaves here to-day, on a summer excursion to tile North, where he Intend* giving a series of those Shakspertan entertainments which have been so welt,received, both in this city and Boston.

Madame Ansa Bishof.?The concert of this distinguished prima donna, given at Louisville, Kentucky, on the Tid of June, was crowded almost to suffocation.? Madame B. is deservedly a great favorite, for she possesses a musical power, which heard, either In scena or melody, is sure to captivate and enchain the feelings of the heart. Later front Yucatan. [from the N. O. Picayune, June 21.^ Till YUOftian scnooner ?oniura, vapt. vununii, arrived yesterday from Campeaehy. having sailed the 13tb. and by her we have papers from Merida to the Oth inat. Capt. Dorantes reports that a battle occurred about the 1st inat at Boltnohen. between the Indians and whites, In which the former were defeated, with the loss of 000 men. They then retreated to the mountains. There were, he reports, no Indians in the neighborhood of Campeaehy. Sisal or Merida. but all the small towns in the interior were either destroyed or vacated by the Yueateoos, who had taken refnge in the three towns named. There was one U.8. bomb ketch at Campeaehy. and a V. 8. schooner at Sisal. The paper of the latest date contains reports of several actions between the government troops and the savages. In which the former were successful. At Chapab, among the ruins of Tieul occurred, the principal affairs. The details would be totally uninteresting here, but the Indians appear to have borne themselves in as cowardly a manner as the whites have been wont to do. We augur well from these successes. Gov. Barbaonano is holding out various inducements to recruits for some new regiments he Is endeavoring to raise. The arrival of a cargo of corn at Campeaehy is announced. It was contributed by eitisens of New Orleans to relieve the distress of the people crowded into that city. Two-thirds of the cargo were to be sent to Merida. The town of Tient. upon examination, is found to have been totally laid waste and destroyed since it fell Into the power of the savages. Isemal Is in much the same situation. Barhachano has issued a severe decree against those who may be taken among the Insurgent Indians, or who msy In any way assist them with arms or otherwire. They are to be tried by nourt martial and shot and rewards are offered for the appreheasiom of all such. Upon the whole, affairs look much more favorable for Uu^wfcm Inhabitant* of Yucatan.

Mr. Giodino* concluded his address, stating that henceforward be repudiated the name of whig, and would recognise no party in future, save that which waa opposed to slavery. This declaration was received with the most vehement applause. The Rev. Mr. I I.ntpinv ftf ff.llnma/1 an/1 ?aeoo?d A k,-u eulogy on the Button Whig, tho Manachutrtli Spy. the Hoxbary Gazette, and such papers as had advocated the principles of the new party. He was followed by Frascm Adams, Esq , of Boston, who spoke In the same, earnest and resolute tone, as that which distinguished all the iormer speakers lu favor of blotting off the stain of slavery from the republie. He concluded his remarks with much warmth of feeling, by saying?" Sluk or swim?succoed, or not succeed, I am with this movement; and never shall desert it; 1 was a whig, but being deceivod by the wliigs, I never again shall be one. (Cheers.) Chari.es Sumner, Esq., of Boston, hero came forward, and was vehemently applauded. He said?The present moment, my friends, reminds me of a remark made at one time by a courtier of France to Louis the 10th?" They have destroyed the Bastlle, sire," said the courtier, "it is then an Insurrection," said the King. " No, sire," said the courtier, " It is a revolution." I need only refer to the anecdoto to illustrate the similitude. Slave-holders are sometimes humane, and are gontleraen. So was Louis the 10th, who suffered human beings to be thrust Into dungeons, in companionship with toads aud rats. (Cries of shame.) Slave support, the perpetration of slavery and the advancement of slaveholders, were unknown to the constitution. The framers of the constitution of the United States were lovers of human freedom. (Cheers.) They were not lovers of slavery. The immortal Washington, Franklin, and Patrick Henry ail condemned it; and was it not right, then, to say that slavery was unknown to the constitution?was adverse to tho opinions of those who established it? (" Vm, yes," aud cheers.) You have been already fatigued up to this late hour, and if I continue you may not be disposed to listen to me. (Cries of " Go on.") Well, what has the slave power done ? It has usurped the control of the government. The largest number of offices are held under-the government. It had its influences in the Missouri compromise, the annexation of Texas, and the Mexican war. (A voice?' Yes, and the Florida war, too.") Yes, if you please; and when 1 think of the widows, the sons, the daughters and the mothers doomed to dark death?when I think of tbeso things, may I not say that this system of slavery Is like the Bastile in France ? A Voice?The Bastile was a gentleman to it. (Roars of laughter.) Mr. Sumner. in continuation?Yes, it has placed its hands in both parts of the country?both of those parts have it?both represent the thing. Now what is our dutv? On one tide is the slave cower, renraaenteil by both of tha opposite parties, arrayed against the organlzatiorf of the freedom power of the country.? Lot us set on foot an organization of all parties, irrespective of party, having for its object, its single object, the utter annihilation of the slnve power.? (Cheers.) There it is?slave power on the one side, and freedom power on the other They can't be led to it. (Cries of ' Are. Are." during which the alarm belt was rung, creating muoh confusion, a voice crying out at the same time, " Don't mind, it is only a false alarm of the barnburners," amid roars of laughter.) It was to promote the success of the Blave power that they procured the nominatiou of General Taylor. This was obtained through an inAuence that came through the North; it was obtained through a conspiracy between the politicians of the southeast and the politicians of tho northwest?by the cotton planters and Aesh mongers of Louisia-na. and the cotton spinners or tho North?between the lords of the loom and the lords of the lash. (Immense applause and cheers ) But we have been told to take tne least of two evils. (Hear, hear) It is admitted, then, that Cass and Taylor are two evils. (Laughter ) Then, if two evils are presented to me, I will take neither of them. (Laughter ) Mr. S. here brieAy glanoed at the question of the tariff internal improvements and the various political questions which he contended had nothing to do with the present organization of the new party, and none of that party would vote for Cass er Taylor. (Cries of" Never never.") They had now come forward, and would nobly stand up in defence of the rights of freedom. The three hundrod Spartans at the pass of Thermopylae fell nobly in dofenoe of the liberties of their country. (Cheers, and orics of" So will we.'') These have left an example behind them, and so shall we; we shall leavo an examplo that is by far greater than any victory (cheers), and that at least we can do. (Renewed cheering ana loud applause.) We can leave an example which can be the source of triumph hereafter. But the assurances which we have received to-day, oonvioce us that we shall not be compelled to postpone to hereafter. (Applause.) We have assurances of immediate success. (Keuewed nr-lJ?r>?\tUjJod_*Dpleuse). I have received a pointed one of the delegates from'tnal'VfAfO, cn'mdei at BuOalo on the 9th of August next. It states that the liberty party in that State have aivon in their hearty adhesion to that movement. and from 16.000 to 20.0o0 of the people's ticket (cheer ) with them The letter went on to state that those who had sown the wind should reap the whirlwind. The prarios were on fire, and the writer hoped that the children of the republic would not now prove themselves bastards. (Applause, and three cheers for the Book eye State.) The speaker continued: The Mexican war was now over, and the country was involved to the amouht of over $180,000,000 of debt. He considered that this should bo paid by direct taxation, and that the debt shonld not be entailed upon those who were to succeed tbem ; that those who were guilty of the crimes should be made to bear them upon their own shoulders. (Hear, hear, and cheors.) There was no single question oonnected with the country, on wbtoh an Issue could not be taken, except that upon which they had new been assembled, and that question arises out of the corruptions of the slave power. That was the question for the country lu this age?it was the question of questions?Involving the perpetuation, the continuance of the American rupublie?(applause)?an effort on their part to carry into praotice, the principles of the declaration of Independence. (Cheers.) Let qs, then, gather from our fathers VonK.'Wng of their union. Three hundred thousand Slaveholder*.': shall they control this Union 1 (--No, no " never^-nect? ") Let us band toother and get strength. (Hear, bear.It if l'te the bundle of arrows in the quiver?w>)en togatba?*JU> i<.tUS?uU..to break the in ; whin separate and apart, it is easy to' effect it. Mr. S. here quoted a pa-sage from the will of Washington, In which he expressly forbade the sale of any of his slaves after his wife's death ; and went on to exhort the meeting to join the friends of the now movement, and concluded. The ntuiiDKHT hereupon announced that Mr. Oiddings would address the people of Lowell. Boston and Springfield, in favor of the objects of tlie nee party, in the coming week. Mr. Whirht. editor of the Roiton Ckronalypt. here rose to give what he termed a personal explanation. (This was supposod to refer to some articles in that journal op the suhjeot referred to.) Ho said that he firmly behoved that the mass of the people, were of opiniou that indirect taxatiou was a humbug! He had heard this in New York from a barnburner. He had as many to take care of as most others, and ho would not throw this question of the tariff in between slavery and freedom. Mr. W. here referred to a resolution which he said had been passed on this suhjeot at 13uffalo, and he said he should not wonder to see a hole in the sky over it after this. (Laughter.) He concluded by trusting that he would yet see the executive deprived of the power of appointment. Mr. Krvr.s hero rose and took occasion to condemn the course of some of the Boston press, (cries of the ' Motion Jillat") in opposing the progress of freedom. Mr. Hoar, grandson of the celebrated Sherman Rogers, next addressed the convention briefly, amid loud cries of " adjourn, adjourn." The greatest confusion, amid orles of adjourn, here prevailed. Amid cries of'1 What about Webster?" the speaker remarked that he would undertake to say that Daniel Webster would not?and was not committed to support General Taylor. (Cheering and ores of adjourn.) Mr Maxwell here referred to Mr. Hamlin's letter, of Ohio, amid much cheering. Mr. Jes|o Hutohinson here came forward on the stand, and sung with muoh comic humor, an extempore parody on the popular and well known song, - We're a band of freemen." amid the utmost cheering and applause, whon the Convention adjourned in apparent high spirits. The people of this part of the oountry seem aroused, almost to a man. in favor of the abolition of slavery, and the Wllmot proviso ; and it is anticipated that thero will be a largo national convention on the 9th of August next, at Buffeto. About 6000 delegates were in attendance from all parts of the commonwealth, and their resolution to pledge the delegation to support no slave-holding candidate, will make the approaching Presidential election one of absorbing interest. Ohio and the harnburning party of Now York, have all. it would anpear. formed a league on this question, which will eventually lead to the old quarrel between the North and the South, on the subject of slavery.
