We expect a fine day. We Ituve never known a lourtli of July to be otherwise. It lias been, as fur us we remember, always as clear as the Decla iniJctii ui iiidt'ju'imi net*. There were two political oot-of-door meetings to-night. 1. /V Cass and Butler meeting. 2 A Taylor and Fillmore meeting. Th?- fnimer was held in the o|?en square in front of the Union office. It was quite a respectable gathering, in material and in numbers. John Boyle, J'.sq., presided, with thirteen vice-presidents and three sectetarics. The peojile were addressed hy Messrs. Greene. of Muine, Thompson, of Mississippi, Clark, of Kentucky, Sawyer, of Ohio, who pi utilised the State to Cass and Butler by 2'1,(WO majoiitv, (now* vcrront,) and we left Mr. Sinn, of South Carolina, pledging the South to tic- ll.ilti more nominees. The whig meeting was held in Sixth street, ojg post to Coleman's. There was a very alitti atteu dance; and alter short speeches by Col. Woolley, <f Kentucky. Gen Taylor,of Ohio, Mr. Dudley Marvin, ot New York, and Mr. Collins Cue, of | Maryland, the meeting adjourned for an other < flort on Wednesday evening. It closed | with three cluers for Gen. J'aylor; hut the shouts were laint, for the good Clay whigs of Washington were doubtless thinking of the old songs and champion of '41, that great old chieftain whom they cannot yet give up. The echoes front the lust campaign set ined to he present in the air:? " (let out of the way. You are all unlucky, Clear the track for Out Kentucky." The dtniocratic meeting, ou the other hand, ; vyound un at a late hour, with n series of resolu- I lions, and a serenade of pome of the lions of the | natty; for at past midnight we hear their finu brass band passing round towards Col. Benton's, as if they had just left the residence of Mr. Burt, of fc'outli Carolina. It is evident the democrats intend to fight out the light with all the odds that can he nrruyed against them. We have had also a circus and a theatre in operation to-night, Siltbec Ht the latter in a Yankee character. Tin: Dpctob. Washing ton, Juty 3, 11 P. M. This city has been well nigli frightened from its propriety, t?y liie din and contusion wlncli have attended the arrival of military companies, (ire c??nipunics, and companies ol other citizens, by the diiiercnt cars and boats. Everything, even the weather, promises a glorious day to-morrow. The politicians, wide awake fellows, have endeavored to take advantage of the first influx of : strangers, to hold their meetings, atul placards have been posted up oil day, announcing that the "Democratic Association" would hold a mass I meeting to-night, in front of the I'm >? office, and the "Whig Club" would confab at the Olympic ' theatre. About half-past eight, we repaired to the I plucc designated for the democratic outbreak, and perceived, gorgeously illuminated, the names of ; Cuss and Duller, towering high in mid-air; before 1 the platform was seated a band, which ever and , anon discoursed sweet sounds to the very sparse collection of "free and independent democrats." The hours waxed apace, and still the crowd remained us small, till at length a bundle of rockets ' were procured, and set oil. when a 1 ir<?> cnllee tion of boys were attracted, and tin- "Associhtion," taking advantage of the lumpy cir- i cumstance, appointed Mr. Movie chairman, and called the meeting to order. Air. Movie then rend the names of thirteen gentlemen vvlio were to be appointed vice presidents, nnd demanded if it was the |>leasure ot' the meeting they should Ire choten. Two or three voices bawled out ''aye" and there was a cry of " Hurrah for old Zackary Taylor by U?d I" when the cliainuan declared there was no necessity for demanding the noes, as | it was evident the no uiatiou was unanimous. ; This was rather too much of a farce, and so we j forthwith mizzled down to the Olympic, where the j Taylor meeting was being held. A Col. Woollcy | was addressing the assemblage, which was pretty numerous. He stated that lie had been for many I 1 years inti i ately acquainted with (Jen. Taylor. , I'liat be knew liim to be a wing in all the esscnj tials, but not an ultrn whig. That he was u m n well read in history, political economy, and pracical subjects; thai he was a man ol the most strictly temperate habits, Ac. (fen.

He would" like to see all the aboli- j tion party embodied into one frightful monster, and I'allrey's pretty little hov armed with a whip of a 1 thousand scorpions, to whip the monster forever!" I 1 In conclusion, he expressed his belief that ' < >ld j * i^aek could be elected in spite of the devil!" So- ! 1 feral other sjtcukers addressed the crowd, and all ; ' 'xpressed themaelves as being satisfied that Cfene- < al Taylor would enter the White House on the Ith ol "Mnrch next. All sorts of amusements are going on here in i ( n addition to the two meetings we have been , ipenktngof. The theatre is in full blast; a circus | s also here, together with a concert at < 'arusi's, j , ind any quantity of " slightly inebriated" indivt- j luals, who are making night hideous with their , j ries.

No Information Lu'- been Riven tome by the Convention, or Its order, of this nomination; end I have waited souie days for that information, a.) furnishing the suitable occasion for making my nuswer But, beginning to doubt whether nny audi communication will bu made, and seeing mv name placed in many papers as a candidate for the V'cc-Presidency, by virtue of that nomination, I deem it ] roper to delay no longer, and to declare at once, and in this public manner, my inability to accept It. The State to which ( belong was represented in the Baltimore Convention ; the vote or that State was given to .Messrs. Cass and IJutler; they were nominated ; and ns one of the citizens of that State, that nomination immediately received my cordial concurrence and support, and will continue to do so. I have long been the friend, personally as well as politically, of Mr. Van Buren; and, under other circumstances. would be proud to have my name associated with his in nny way ; but the acceptance of this nomination is impossiote ; and I have to request the memtiers of tho Convention and the public, to receive this declination as my answer, and to excuse this mode of making It? lielng the only mode which the want of a communication from the Convention leaves open to me.
