We have letterR from northern and southern Ohio, ^ which speak with great confidence of the result in No- , vember. General Taylor will not leave the Western : reserve with a respectable vole?his vote will not be as j large as the vote for General Cass in northern Ohio. : In the middle counties of the State General C ass will ; receive a large majority, and in southern Ohio he will receive a larger vote than has usually been given to democratic candidates. The " free soil ' vote will be derived from the usual whig vote. The great effort of the whigs is directed to the election of Ford. The ' free soil,'' or abolition party, has no candidate in nomination, and the result is more doubtful. Ford has refused to declare for which candidate. Van Bur*n or Taylor, he will give hiB vote. This is a strange course to pursue, but it is deemed the only safe course for htui If the people of Ohio can blindly support a man without knowing or asking his view", then we ate disappointed in them. The whig and '-free soil" papers both fly Mr. Ford's name. The free soil v!?w Is as follows :? -V correspondent of the Cincinnati Globe speaks of the Bigns in northern Ohio in the most gratifying terms:? We shall sweep the Reserve with a rush, by fifteen thousand majority. Look at it All the whig candidates for ConjreM here are anti-Taylor men. Two of them (Crowell and Oiduiugs) are Van Buren men ? The other (Root) if undecided whether to vote fur V$n Buren. or not nt all; but indices to the former courte. There are but three Taylor whig candidates running .for the Legislature on the reserve, and they will probably all be defeated by free soil men. 'I hear from Stark county, that Hon. U. W. Belden, of Canton, one of the leading democrats in that county, late President Judge of that circuit, is out for Van Buren and free soil. Mr Kaaffman. another leading democrat there, has also ceme eut lately for the great cause.'' The Germans of Cleveland had a grand-tally on the 20th at the court hou*e. Mr. Kauiliuan addressed them with great effect. Mr. K said he had acted with the democratic party twenty-eight years, during which time he had been conviuued that the South waly acted with either of the great purlieu for the purpose of promoting Southern interests, and that it was With this *im that Cass was nominated.

By an aot of Cons;rffh appointing a uniform day for the election of electors for President and Vice President of the Unlted States, to wit, on the seventh day of November, in every fourth year, this State is debarred by two considerations : first, by its own constitution its Legislature does not meet until the fourth Monday in November in every year, and. second, by the fact that thia Legislature elects the electors for President and Vice President. It is, therefore, impossible to comply with the taid act or Congress, under this state of facta. Without enlargement here, the question arises, how can South Carolina make her vote available, or ?ven east it at all? Can she, through her chief j magistrate, by the authority delegated to him, ' in tne thirteenth section of the second article ?f her constitution, ' to convene the General Assembly, on extraordinary occasions,' cast her vote ?n the seventh day of November ???r will It be neoespnrv that the 10 th section 01 the 1st article of the constitution be altered, so trial tbe Legislature sball be convent d at an earlier day than the fourth Monday in November, in older that the Slate may ca*t her vote in compliance with said act of Congress .' ? and further. at- connected with this sutyect. if the Governor, ( tinder tbe authority given *on extraordinary occasions,' ( should convene tbe General \sceinbly of the Slate, -who will compose tliat body.?the mem Iters elected in 3840. or the persons who shall be elected cn the second Alonday in October next?"

A report from the select committee on the subject of iltering Art HI of the constitution, relating to the qualifications of lay delegates, was then read by Rev. Dr. Vinton. The report was listened to with great nterest. It concluded with the following preamble Hid resolution :? Whereas, it it the opinion of this convention, that the weltare mil piotperity if tie Church require, and it is in itsvlf proper inil right, that no lay delegate* should be sant to this convention mtsuch as are communicants of this Church; therefore, Resolved, That the constitution be amended thus: After the vordn "lay numbers." in articlo III, insert the words "who ihall be communicants," and strike out the words " or more," and nsert the words, " and not more than three." Dr. Vixtok defended the resolution, and was opposed jy Rev. Dr. Taylor, of Oraee Church. Rev. Mr. Weaver, of West Troy, moved to lay the whole subject on the table?lost on yeas and nays. It iras then proposed to make the question the order of tbe evening, which proposition met with approval, and % recess was taken till 7 o'clock. EVENING SESSION. Tlie convention met at a little past 7 o'clock, and proceeded with the business of the evening, Rev. Dr. Weaver first moving that 2000 copies of the journal if this convention be printed, under direction of the Secretary. The motion prevailed. The report of the Select Committee on the Alteration of the Constitution, touching the qualifications >f lay delegate*, wan then taken op. Re*. Dr. Ta vi.or. of Grace Church, moved to strike iff the preamble, and all of the resolution which foltow?d the word u resolved," and insert oth?r words which would (if the amended resolution should pass) ;arry with them an import entirely opposite, to the exclusion of unbaptized and non-communing members, lie proposed that lay delegates should be chosen by the vestry or congregation. Dr. Vinton arose and proposed to withdraw the preamble. and urge the passage of the resolution only. He contended if the resolution of Dr. Taylor prevailed, It would be the prevalence of the nogative jf his own. The resolution before the house anly proposed to remedy the evil at present apparent in the constitution, by which persons unbaptUed, and infidels, night become members of the convention. He then entered into an analyzation of the report, which caneluded with the original resolution. The resolution, lie said, had been itself framed by a lay member. Rev. Dr. Taylor followed in support of his amendment. He feared that the resolution of the committee was fraught with mischief in the future. He appeared to fear that the onward coarse of the Church would be impeded in this Western world, if the proposed restriction were carried out. The present prevailing rule, he said, was established when this convention consisted of the delegates from but twenty churches; and he argued that the rule then advisable should now as well prevail No resolution, he said, could possibly be introduced more calculated to Introduce bitterness and discord. In relation to danger of infidels obtaining a peat in the convention. Dr T thought it improbable li nt persons would expend their money and time In dtvotion to a cause when they were actually enemies to it. He thought that it was hiirhlv innxnedient tn |m ps the resolution of the committee. Ki t Charles Jom s, of Johnstown, would only innin upon baptism into the church He would not require ronfumation to constitute eligibility to membership of the convention lie diil not look upon it hp a question of expediency, but an a question of rights. He said he was bern in a country where partaking of the sacrament was a necessary qualification for ofllce, and good men. he intimeted. regretted that it was so He hoped that the resolution of the committee would not prevail. He?. Mr. Vakiilkfk, of Troy, also took part in the debate, as also did Kev. Isaac Pardee, of the Church of the Redemption, who claimed that the <fonvention were to vote on the question as a matter of ptini iplo and right ; and. said he. let expediency take rare ol itself. He proposed to combine the two ques. lions. the resolution and the amendment offered by l)r Taylor, in one resolution, whloh should stand as a substitute, as follows :? 'lh convention shall be composwI of presbyters tnil doa<-.>ns cammii Klly oonncctcd with this dio?o?e, an<l not under wclcsiiM i?i i, .. i.. ....n > ? i onsistini; <if one and not more than three from eai h church, to Ic elected by the vestry or i-ongrepatlou, Mr. Hamii.ti>>, of (ireenburgh, had a farther amendment to offer. Rev. Dr. M< Vic kkr. of this city, wan in favor of Mr Vinton's resolution, but was not in favor of its imme diate passage. The hour for adjournment haying sometime previcusly arrived, it wm deemed expedient to defer farther debate of the subject until the following morning, rrevious to adjournment, however, Judge Bknnktt, of Ticonderoga. gare notice that be should in the morning introduoe a resolution, calling tor the payment to Bishop Onderdonk of ?2.r>00 yearly, as the Bishop's salary. Kev. Dr. Akthon, of St. Mark's Church, also gave notice, that he rhonld to-morrow (to-day) offer a resolution, inquiring whether the general contention has complied with a previous (last year's) resolution, calling upon It to give to the diocese such relief as may be witnln its powers Dr. A here alluded to tne following resolutions, unanimously adopted at the last convention, viz : ? Resolved, That, as the solemn conviction of this comsntim, that justice to >he chnreh ia the diocese of New York, as well at its best interests, domand that it be relieved frora.its )ire?ent anomalous position.

On the Monday afternoon she left Livert jol. and when oft Holyhead, in Wales, a tudden squall camn down and split tbn maintopmast staysail While engaged in curing the sail, one of the passengers, a youog man, about 24 years of age. of the name of Alexander Townsend, and who was understood to be a native of Dublin, wan knocked overboard by the staysail sheet. Every exertion was made by throwing ropes, fee. overboard, to savo the unfortunate man, but without success. The >ea ran so high that no boat could have withstood it a minute. Townsend was -een far astern, manfully struggling for a lite that no humau power could save. Almost at the moment the above aceidcnt ocourred, the woodwork of the wheel chains gave war. and a heavy cross pea being on at the time, the ship rolled fearfully ; but the activity of the officers and crew resulted in the speedy repair of the damage. Moderate but variable weather, with continued head winds, ensued, until Saturday, the 2d instant, whan the wind blew a complete gale from the 8. W , and freshened into a hurricane, carrying away the topsail yard at the slings It blew without cessation, until 6 A.

While the tempest lasted, the degtruction of property caused by the rolling of the ship was of ferious consequence to the passengers ; and a heavy sea which broke over her on the evening of the 3d, all but completed the desolation The mid-hatch wt? carried away, as algo several loose articles on deck ; tbe cabins Btthe mid-hatoh were stove in and the steerage floor covered at least twelve inches with water, amid which boxes, trunks, and provision chests floated about, dashing against each other, and breaking and destroying every article they contained. A few of the passengers were hurt, but none very seriously. Through the assidiou* labors of the captain and officers, much damage was prevented to persons and property From the 4th te the 1-th inst , tbe weather wag most uncomfortably stormy and squally, but on the latter day the wind blew a hurricane, which lasted nearly three days. From that period, until the ship's arrival, varied winds and changeable stormy weather marked her course: and few ever greeted more heartily, or had more reason to hail with joy the shores of Columbia, than the passengers by the David Cannon Good health prevailed on board.

The captain of the police, who was sitting in the station-house, a few doors below,beard the discharge of the pistol and immediately ran to the door, and on the stoop he mot Austin coming in, saying that he was much hurt, his face and shirt bosom being at the time covered with b>ood, from severe wounds on his forehead, eyebrow, nose and lips, evidently done with a decanter or bottle; his bat was cut i through in several places, showing that considerable > force had been applied by those who inflicted the assault.

Perk int.? About b o'clock yesterday afternoon, ijuitc a serious affray took place on board the Thomas H. Perkins, lying at the foot of Rotevelt street, between the captain (Wm \V. Taker) and one of the aeamen, by the name of "Win. Leonard, in which the latter received a severe injury, which may possibly provo fatal. It appears from the evidence before the magistrate, that the seaman Leonard applied to the captain for hia pay, and feting infused, some words took place between them,; when the captain ordered him out of th?, cabin. Leonard refused to go, and a further altercation took pla >?. the captain attvmp'int; to put ' him out,and the still refusing to go, when the captain raid if he did cot go out he would shoot him. Leonard replied that he (thecaptaln) : had'nt gotpiuek enough." The captain immediately went to hu state- j room and returned with a loaded pistol in one hand and a cutlass in the other. L'pon returning to the outer door of the cabin, where Leonard stood, on deck. ' within tire feet of the cabin, the captain discharged ! the pistol at him, which*was loaded with slugs, one of which gTaied the skull of Leonard, inflicting a severe wound, which bled profusely, and it wan said by the surgeon to have fractured the skull. Not satisfied with this, the captain commenced cutting at Leonard with the sword, inflicting wounds on his arms and legs. Leonard then retreated towards the foreoastle. where a struggle took place, and down they went together on I the deck, and Leonard succeeded in obtaining poeses- [ slnn of the sword, and whs. while Id the host of pas 1 ' Mod. just going to retaliate on the captain, when h~ wns stopped by Margaret Basnet, one of the steerage pas- , ' senge's. who was on board the ship and saw the whole affair from the beginning. The mate of the ship, John Bowker, then stepped in and prevented any more vio- i lence being used. The Dews aeon spread around the neighborhood that a man was shot by the captain, i which created >ome ill feeling against him to-uch :iu extent, thata lavge orowd of-ouie three or four hundred sailors and stevedores mustered around aud on bmrd the ship, all swearing vengeance on the captain. The I police of the 4th ward were soon on the ground of action, and took the captain into custody, together with the mate John Bowker. whim they conveyed to the Tombf. The captain was secreted in the store of Mr. Avery, situated in Water street, near Dover, by ' the policemen who bad him In custody, fearing lent the | mob should overpower them, rescue the captain, and Lynch" him on the spot. As it wis, the captain received some rough handling beforn he taken in custody by the policemen. The wounded man was . convejod to the ( ity Hospital, where hi- wounds were dref-td. As hi- skull is said to be fractured, bis recovery, therefore. Is very doubtful At nine o'clock last e?eniBg. Leonard was considered to be in a very dangerous state. Theca-e vill be further investigated i todn> btfore Justice l.othrop : meantime, the mate and the captain are detained in custody.
