Important Political Statistics. Our readers will find on the first page of this day's Htraid, tDe resuii 01 uie uscuvus .mmu) held in 1849; the names of the members of the Thirty-first Congress, bo far as known; the nominations in the several States in which elections are yet tolje held; the names of the democratic, whig, Iree soil, and liberty league Presidential Klectorp, and the city nominations, as far as made. They will also find in our columns several interesting political letters. These statistics and thet.e letters, just at this lime, are quite valuable. It will be perceived in the result o< the elections already held, that the democrats have increased their plurality, in twelve States, over eight thousand since 1844, when Polk was elected by a plurality of IW.7W \otes, and that in the same period the al.oht.onists or free soilers have increased then vote in three States over eighteen thousand. We hn%e been at considerable trouble in preparing the^e tables; they are us accurate as they can Ik made. The Presidential Election and Ui? Kre< Soli Question?View* of British K<11 tori and American Statesmen* Then- never was a time since the organizatioi of the American government, when there was ai much attention paid to, and interest lelt in, th< ailair- of this repnblic, l>y foreign countries, and especia !y by England, as there are at present. AiinoM every day brings forth articles from the I.vrnivn pveoe, on inv poiiuvti UUU vairci ui uui country: and the London Times, probably the most |>oKerfii! and influential journal in Europe, is loremos! in its -.teal to take American affairs nude i its charge, and dilaU upon them lrom time to time, as irterest or prejudice may dictate. In's Undid we republish an art.cle that appeared recently in the London Standard, the organ of the Ensjlis!: aristocracy, and a bitter foe to republicanism and republican principles, which is well worth a ;>erasal on this side of the Atlantic. The ai ticle in question is based on the speech recently delivered in ( harleston, South Carolina, by the lion. John C. Calhoun, on the subject of the free soil movement, in connection with the Presidential election. It will be recollected that Mr. Calhoun, in that speech, intimated that a dis. so ution of the Union would assuredly follow the euccessfu organization of th? free soil party ol the N'oith, and spoke of the determination of the South tt> maintain her rights, <fcc., Arc. This is all very well, and we in the United States understand Very well what it means, what it is worth, and what thote threats will pass current for here at home, where they were uttered. Not so, how" ever, with our transatlantic neighbors. They lake up this speech of Mr. Calhoun, wisely deliberate upon it, con every syllable about the rights of the South, determination of the South, dissolution of the Union, &c. kc., ?.nd gravely inform their readers that the union of these United Statea will certainly be destroyed before ;i Urz while, and concludes by epecul.iimg or the probable advantages and disadvantui ? to iiiitish interests, forsooth, of the ?'cct;r:encf of 9Uch a contingency, as the editor ol the journui in his heart wishes may take place. We have a little adi?ce to give to that journal, and that .-, " keep cool,'" or if it would like it better, ?' save your breath to cool your porridge." The London Times is not behind its cotemporai) ti e Standard, in prognosticating evil to the Un.!?d States. Having kindly taken American nteie?*-s mder its j ecuhar charge, it dilates al s' rn?* length on the subject of the approaching Pre< .-idfotib! contest, and predicts that if a man like Geneial Taylor, fresh from the camp, be taken u{ b\ tl.e peo-ile, and elected to the chief magistrac) -* *L j ii.ei. irfioH hvp to the lihertief Ml Uir i juiru otmrcvf iuvm ?- -j 01 ':. * public?we (hall pood, hereafter, be t re i. < ? nly in name, and the way will be cleai lorib>- -levation of a Sc> 11a, a Marius, or a Cromwell, v .0 would wield the destinies of the repub,ic lor his own aggrandisement, irrespective of his oath ot cilice, or the will or interests of the connliy. 1 ; is is very kind ol the Timet, and we certainly cunnot but be irratelul for its benevolent consideration of our country, and the great interest v Itch it manifestly (eels in our affairs. Tc that journal w e beg leave to give the same advicf t iHtwp i:<\e a'ready jriven to the Slaruimd, whict ve l.? will be received in a ptoper spirit. i - ?-is coincidence that the news thui > > eminent journals in hogland, agre< , > t * those uttered by two distitiguiahet .\me.i ,,i -taUsmtn, on precisely the same sub jn'~ tV>?-r. 'hat in one case, one of tho*? jouijm-, the Standard, coincides with Mr. Cal honpj on the fr< e soil uesiion; and in the other M: 1' chanan concdea with the I>ondor '/ > he coiii-f<jiienee? that would probai i\ it. ow rlie ? lectiori of (ien. Taylor to the I'rt?i? . u; he I niicd States Thus the Standard ;11' - h \ : Mr. C, that a dissolution of the l'i?.up inevitable, if the free soil party become triuni|< i. it. .ibd asitthinkstuch a dissolution is ul nosi cr .tin, it speculates. as we have before said, on the jir--habit' efltct 'iicll a state of thinif-i would ha \- ??n ' liritiah interests." Again, the Londor 7 ' ik - about the rltctionof (Jeneral Tajrloi jiauiur tiie way for a Ney11*, a Marius, or a Crom we i, in rtie the I'nittd Hates; and Mr Huchanar iu hia Tent ?|>eerh, delivered at Washington, ant j m.'- I n t..n n the H'r tld of yesterday, *-*J* -i ' precisely the Mine ground, and argues that his elevation to the executive depaitment would torm a I precedent by which other generals, animated i with the spirit of a Scylla or a Cromwell, may | reach the Presidential chair. Now, with nil due deference to the sage opinions and kindly advice of the London Standard and j the London Time*, and t le sentiments uttered by I Mr. ('alhoun, of Fouth Carolina, and Mr. Bu" chanun, the secretary of State, we beg leave to difler with them, individually and collectivelyThe views given by these journals of England, ! and statesmen of America, are uttered with one i I object l>y each. Mr. Calhoun -wishes to frighten | iHf North. hk lie Irieil to do on a former and a : similar occasion, into his views on the slavery | question ; Mr. Buchanan wishes to promote the t election of CSeneral Cass, and defeat that of Gene, j ral Taylor; the London Standard desires to see | the progress of republicanism on this continent, j and throughout the world, arrested l?y any means; i and the 'l imes, the organ ot all the corrupt aristo| crats, monarchists, and bankrupt merchants, financiers, brokers, and governments, in England and in Europe, to a certain extent, wishes to preserve the state of thingB at present existing in England, knowing that it cannot be much longer maintained, if this country continue to progress towards greatness and dominion as it lias done for the last quarter of a century. That paper has attacked and villified France in the same manner, almost daily, j since the revolution of February last; and with the i same object in view, has discountenanced the efI forts of the masses of other portions of Europe l to shake otl the shackles of monarchy that have j oppressed them for ages, and rise to the position occupied by the people of this happy land. It will thus be evident, that when these things are taken into consideration, ihe predictions of the Standard are worthless?the advice of the Timet is thrown away?and as regards the sentiments of Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Buchanan, they will pass with us &t their current value, which is properly appreciated, \ we doubt not, by the politicians and people of tins ! country. But aside from irony, we have no fear that either the agitation ot the free soil or slavery question, or the election of Gen. Taylor to the Presidency, will : result in either the dissolution of the United States, or the elevation of a Scylla, a Martus, or a Crom- i well. If this were not the year 1848, we would not be confident in our opinion; but as it is, we are. i The experience of our government, and the work- j ing of our institutions, together with the history of , the parties which divide the people, prove most I conclusively to our mind, that no measure, or set j of measures, no matter how grave or important they may be, can ever be pushed to a length or ; extremity that will jeopardise ttie Union of the ( confederacy. If space permitted we could give an i abundance oi reasons for entertaining this opinion, i which, we think, would befsatisfactory to our read- | ers. Again, ub to the probability of the elevation ; to power of a character similar to those mentioned hy the Timet and by Mr. Buchanan, it is an absurdity?all moonshine. Such a contingency is in j the greatest degree impossible, aB long as the j j vote by ballot is as general and universal as it I is in the United States. That alone would preI vent the occurrence of such a catastrophy; buj j there are other influences in addition to that, which i we poseesB and which have a similar tendency, j We allude to the nughty improvements that have been made within the last few years, in the science ! of applying that great civilising element steam, to the putposes of locomotion on land, and navigation on the ocean. We allude, too, to the application ? of the same element to the art of printing, and to 1 the aMounding improvements that have been made ! m the printing press, and of which our establish1 ! ment affords positive and undeniable proof at this ! 3 j hour. We allude, too, to the application ofelectri- \ ' city to the purpose ol communicating instanta- j neouely with the most distant points of our country. | Will it be said that despite of all these great in- i struments and influences, that this great country , will take a reactionary course?that these confede- , rated States will snap asunder, like a cord; or that a Scylla, a Manus, or a Cromwell, could reach uni- i j versal power in the United States 1 The idea is absurd. The people of both the Northern and Southern States appreciate too fully the advantages of the confederacy to destroy it; and as for a Scylla, lie could not maintain Iub position, were any one like him unfortunately to reach it, for one hour, in opposition to the influences we have above mentioned. i Entertainirs these views, therefore, we of ' course, differ from the English papers and the American statesmen to whom we have referred on these subjects. We do not think that the free soil (jnestion can be pushed to an extremity that would in reality endanger the union of these j r States, as it is at present constituted, although it might lead to a gieat deal of bluster, and to the explosion of a great deal of eas; nor do we believe that the election of Ceneral Taylor would be succeeded by the consequences so graphically pictured by Mr. Buchanan, and so confidently predicted by the London Timet. This country is destined to increase in population, wealth, and j national power, to a point that Home never aspired to, England never dreamt ot, and such as will 1 make her, and that, before long, the greatest na. j tion that the sun of heaven ever shone upon, ! and heT people the freest, happiest, and the most intelligent on the face of the globe. Ft nny Nomination.?The funniest of all the i funny nominations that have been made in differ,r ent parts of the country lor members of Congress, i is, we think, that of James G. King, the financier and broker of Wall street, to represent a portion of the people of the sovereign State of New Jersey, in the legislative councils of the nation. What on earth induced them to go out of their own State, i cross the Hudson, and dive into the vault* and i counter-cellars of Wall street, for a candidate, we t cannot, for the life of us, perceive. It is really as consistent as it would have been in the shepherds s of Bethlehem to enter the temple of Solomon, and > select from the money changes whom we read of, ' one of them to be their Messiah. Such a funny i thing as this nomination is, we never heard of i What, can it be |K>ssible that there is not in the r district referred to. a man competent to represent the inhabitants in Congress ! It is pretended that Mr. King is a resident of New Jersey, because, i forsooth, he lives, or rather sleeps, generally near Hoboken; but he is not, in reality, a resident of that State, although he may be so technically. A t man s residence is generally in the place where his business and his interests are. It certainly ? cannot be pretended that Mr. King's business and interests are in New Jersey, or that lie is in any i rthpr rn inner interested in, or associated with, the interests of that State, fuither than sleeping in i it. His business and interests are in Wall street, ; fcnd it is the numerous cliques or financiers, bro1 k?rs, Ihihc ducks and plucked pigeons of that cele biuted ref ion, that he is qualified to represent as a r nu mber of ( ongress, and not the j>eople of New . Jeisey As to the relation which he bears to New , Jers ?y, it is only that which a turkey bears to the I pole on which he reposes ou one leg, the other being bent up under his wing. Mr. King is, in tact, <>nly a turkey in New Jersey; for Ins business f is in New Yoik, and he doeB no more in New Jersey than toobl, not, perhaps, on a |>ole, but on a bed. Hut Mr King has been nominated, and we ?hui| i see whether a Wall street broker will be elected I 'o( oni? -s, to represent the |>t*Ople o( N''\\ Jersey, i or not. i or :.t n IPC?The steamship iiritunnia I will leave this pent. Id morrow, for Halifax and I ,.'erp<<i '.'lie U ,,-k'v /#("?// wi'I . ;?"ib<'>he<J i* I . rt Jfi I | Sixth Conorismohat. District.?Col. Monro?, it appears, has declined the nomtaahon as a candidate, for the whigs, to repreaentfthe sixth Congressional district in Coagress. We think he was perfectly right in doing so ; for he has been scandalously treated by his party, in being offered the nomination for the short term, after contesting his election, at an immense cost of time, labor, and money,with Mr. Jackson. Our friend Mr.Greeley, of the Tribune, has received the nomination, in his stead; so that Mr. Greeley is, after all, a candidate for Congiess. It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. The nominations of that district are now complete, and they certainly present a curious and strange combination. There are Mr. Ilrooks, of the Exprtti, and Mr. Greeley, ot the Tribune. The former of these gentlemen wu a violent native American when that i>arty promised to be in the ascendant; during the recent Irish agitation he was a violent anti-Irishman, und for several months he poured forth, unstintedly, his abuse of General Taylor when he was mentioned as a candidate for the Presidency. Then, again, is Mr. Greeley, a violent pro-Irishman?one who worked himself nearly to death in agitating Irish revolution and Irish independence; and when he got tired at this work, he published the celebrated Slievegamoh letter, which killed several thousand British soldiers, on paper, and made the Irish masters of their country. He is, too, a Fouierite, an abolitionist, an anti-capital punishment man, and everything else that is new and dangerous. Truly, this is a strangefmedley, or combination. How can it be expected that the Irish will vote for the candidate who was once a native American, and who opposed them at a time when they were exerting themselves to free their native land 1 Again?how can the natives go for Mr. Greeley, or the opponents of the dangerouB schemes for the reconstruction of society support him, when he is the known and public advocate of all those princi plee and measures which we have mentioned? Above all, how can the friends of General Taylor vote for one or the other of them, after both denouncing him for a lone time?Mr. Greeley calling him a journeyman human butcher, and Mr. Brooks denying to him the possession of any qualification necessary to fit him for the Presidency, and even underrating his military ability"? We cannot and will not pretend to answer these questions; nor, indeed, is it necessity, because tliey will soon be submitted to the decision of the voters of the district. At any ri te, such a curious combination of new principles and isms was never before presented to an enlightened people. Kioin Mexico Direct. By ihe arrival of the brig Caroline Clark, Capt. Hoffner, intelligence has been received from Vera Cruz to the 23d ult. The United States steamer Ins was at Vera Cruz, waiting the arrival of Mr. Clifford, from the city of Mexico, to take him to Norfolk. The French brig Panama was searched by the Mexican authorities, who found on board $4,000 smuggled money, which they seized for their depressed nation, which is daily robbed by all who belong to that feeble government. On the'3d ult., a pronunciamento was proclaimed at Vera Cruz against the government monopoly of tobacco, and became unanimous throughout the tobacco regions. Previous to the departure of the Caroline Clark, notice was received from the general government that the government entanro would be enforced by the National Guards at Mexico, inconsequence of which Vera Cruz and other States were making preparations for resistance. Vera Cruz is staunch, and will not back out furtherthantlie Castle of San Juan d'Ulloa. The Mexicans at Vera Cruz, are on the most friendly terms with the Americans, but they are ill-disposed towards the English clique of lrish? U'.th I? iIai' lU Mow that Padre Jarauta is dead, Parades 19 again suing the Mexican government for his passport to retire from the country. It is currently reported that Francisco Arrengois is commissioned by General Santa Anna to go to the United States, and buy vessels of war for Santa Anna's new project against his native soil. The Mexicans are making seizures of smuggled goods that were landed on the coast. A heavy feizmr had been recently made. The mole at Vera Cruz was very badly injured on the 18th September, by a heavy norther, by which one Mexican schooner was thrown on shore and stranded. The British steam packet did not arrive at Vera Cruz until the 10th, when she left for Tampico, the same day, and returned on the 19th, and left on the 20th, with over one and a half million of dollars and 450 ceroons of cochineal, on board?the balance of the crop. This aiticle had gone up from $1 to $1 25 per lb., at VeraCruz. The markets of Vera Cruz are in a state of nullity, in consequence of the heavy stocks which had been forced on them by public auctions, previous to the Americans leaving. American cottons are in demand. It is reported that the Mexican tarifi will be altered to admit all prohibited goods. The Rio Grande will be the port o^' entry for all such goods. The future promises even a more wretched condition of things here than has existed hitherto. From Texas.?The idea that the country is overflooded with goods is entirely erroneous. In Mooter*? and Saltlllo there are large quantities of gccdf>. brought there during the occupation of the country by our army, but thej are not suited to the trade The Mexicans prefer croeiing the river to make their pnrohasea, because goods are cheaper, and also on account of the saving in duty. A town has been laid out at the Garcia rancho. fifteen miles above Rio Grande city. called Koma, and about thirty Americans have already settled there. Settlements have also been established opposite Mier, and at a place a little below Guerrero. All these points, says the Star, look upon Corpus Chrtstl as their depot, it having the advantage in cost of freight and transportation. The same paper states that Col. Kinney has purchased the whole or a part of Mustang Island from Col. Tower. The friends of Ireland held a meeting at Corpus Cbrlsti on the 20th ult . Col. Kinney presiding. Resolutions were passed, expressive of the sympathy of the meeting for the Irish people, and their determination to aid Ireland in the ooming struggle. Gen. Arista has returned to his beautiful reside no* in Monterey. The General was onoe very friendly to the plan of separating tho Northern provinces from Mexico, and it may be that his return to New Leon may again revive the old feeling. Intelligence from Honduras and Central America.?The bark John 11. Gardner, Captain Pederson, arrived yesterday from Balize, Honduras, in one of the shortest, it not the shortest, runs ever made between the two ports. She exj>erienced extraordinary bad weather on both the outward and homeward passages, an interesting account of which will b?' found under the marine head. The Gardner's advices from Honduras are to theJUh inst., up to which date we have full files of the Ohtrrver. At Honduras, there was r.o news of the least consequence. The Obttrvrr has advices from Guatemala, of a recent date, and the items from this unhappy, but fair portion of Central America, are thus given:? " The conflicting and unsatisfactory accounts which are generally received from Guatemala, often disincline us to make our readers acquainted with the various romors that reach our ears. ' In our paper of 16th ult . we mentioned that the insurgents (or party " Liberal,' as they are called) had mustered In large numbers before the city of Guatemala. and demanded fr- m their leaders four days' pillage cf the cltjr.

WMIO MKKTl.NO OP THE FOURTH DISTRICT. The friends of Mr. Wm. K. Robinson. on* of ths whig candidates for the Fourth Congressional Distriot) and a large number of the eleotora of the Oth, 7th. llth, and 13th wards, met last evening at the North Amerl. can Hotel, corner of Bayard and Bowery, to hear an | exposition of the influences which prevailed, and of | the pledges which were broken at the whig nominating convention of the fourth district, and to take suoh action thereon as might ba deemed expedient. Mr. O. J. Smith was appointed chairman of the meeting. Mr. Pattii undertook to explain the objects of the meeting. He raid that Mr. Robinson bad been solicited to come forward to represent that district in Congress. and this nroceedlnir was no a?t of his own. (Cheer*.) The motive the people had in malting Huoh , a selection, was, that no mor? competent or able man oflere J fortheir choice, or ont* whom they considered better qualified to represent them. (Cheers.) He had atood forward and fought all their battles, und had | made mere speeches on bebalt of their cause, than any other advocate. (Cheers.) They dil not meet there, , however, for the purpose of revenging themselves, by taking an Independent position with regard to their friend, but to give expression to their feelings of regret and remonstrances against the improper Influences which had been brought to bear against him, and to take such action In the matter as it might seem to them to require. (Cheers.) Mr. H. (jit)i rt then addressed the meeting. He came there not to make or encourage division, but to produce harmony among the l'rlends of the respective candidates, so that one of them might be selected and *11 might support him. (Cheers ) After adverting to the violation of their pledges by those who had promised to vote for Mr Robinson, he said that he believed them both to be good candidates. (Cheers.) There was one mode, however, of deciding this question, viz: to submit the clilms of the respective candidates to the people at a ratification meeting. (Cheers.) Another mode was to leave the whole case, with the various doouments, to an arbitration of their respeetive friends?three of them to be selected by one partv, and three by the other ; and three more to be seleoted by these sis?the decision of the nine on the whole case to be final. (Cheers) HeJ suggested either of these modes with the view of securing the harmony and united action of the whig party. (Cheers ) A committee of three was then appointed to draft resolutions, and to consult as to the most expedient course to be adopted under the circumstances. I n the meantime, while this committee was in deliberation and preparing the resolutionsMi. Chas. Hiddlic, at the request of the meeting, then ascended the stand. He made an able and eloquent speech, and alluded, with considerable effect, to the shameful and treacherous manner inwhlohseve- i ral of the delegates of tthe 6th, 13th, and other wards, bad violated the pledges they had given before their nomination to support Mr. Robinson. He then referred to 'the wire-working that preceded |the late Philadelphia and Syracuse conventions, and gave a I long tTpoir ?f the trickery, deception, and hypoorisy which were practised. (Cheers) In whatev^ way, continued Mr. R.. this present question may oe settun I hone the meeting will not SeDarate without affixing the real of political damnation on those who | acted with such treaehery, duplicity, and hypocrisy at the late nomination. (Cheers.) The committee here returned, and a preamble, with a series of resolutions, were Vg reed upon, to the effeot that Mr Robinson had not received fair play, and that a publio ratification meeting of the electors of the respective wards in the district would be held in the same place on Wednesday evening next, when the people should be called upon to give their decision on the claims of the respective candidates. The meeting then adjourned. the democratic primary election in the eioiitii ward The demoorats of the eighth ward held a primary eleotion yesterday, for the purpose of electing delegates to the Congressional. |county, and Assembly conventions of the party. It was a very exciting affair, on account of the exertions made by the friends of Mike Walsh to carry the ward, as they considered it essential, so as to procure the nomination of their candidate. After a great struggleMwhich was contesti ed inch by inch, the following ticket, composed of I mpn supposed to be adverse to Mr. Walsh's nomint- i tioB. was carried by a majority of one hundred and forty-two votes.

We are Informed that there were some very tumultuary scenes exhibited at the place * here the eleotion : was held, during the day. in the afternoon, several attempts were made to remove by force the ballot box, but without success At one time, a man laid violent hands on it. and was carrying it off, but he was stopped by another man. The ear of the latter was seized by the teeth of the other, and held for some minutes. The occurrence was witnessed by a great many people, and is represented to have been very ludicrous Tbe man with the ballot box held on to the other's ear, and walked quite a distance, and dragging the other !>y that organ. At one time there were upwards of Ats hundred persons on the ground congressional conventions. The democratic (old hunker) convention of the ; Sixth Congressional District, comprising the 11 tb. 12th, 15th. 16th. 17th and 18th wards, met, last evening, at ' Vauxhall Garden, and organized, by electing Isaac H.

The committee, after parsing some resolutions, making arrangement* for the election, adjourned to the residence of Mr. Law, and tendered the nomination to him, which he accepted, and made a very neat speech In reply. Ample refreshments were provided, and at a late hour the convention adjourned to the street, { where they gave nine hearty cheers, and then returni ed to their respective homes The whig congressional convention of the 5th district, met last night, at the Broadway House, for the fourth time, and up to twelve o'clock had not succeeded In making a nomination. They had determined, however, te remain until they could agree upon , a candidate. The free soil convention of the 5th district met last night at No. 162>* Yarlck street, and chose Mark Spencer, Ksq.. as their candidate to represent them in the neit Congress. The hunker onventionof the 3d distriot assembled last night at the Ion, in Washington street, but the whole evening was spent in discussing the claims of two sets of delegates ftom the 3d ward, each of which claimed a seat in the convention. The hunker convention of the 4th distriot assembled last night, at No. 20 Allen street, which resulted in the nomination of William B. Meaclay, Eaq, I Trouble tMoso tii( Husitm,?

Qtnlltmrn \ our communication apprising me 1 that I "?m unanimously, and bj aoclamation, nomi1 natid by the Whig Convention of Delegates. for the Sixth Congressional District, assembled at Constltu> tlonal ilall on the 12th 1 nut as the representative of aid district for thi residue of the t?4> of tbe present 1 Congress ' has this day been reoeWea V"or the cour' teous manner in whiob you have been pleased to an' Bounce this fact, allow me to lender you my thtnks A recapitulation of the prominent factii which hare come to my knowledge relative to the origin and action of that convention, Is due to thej electors of the <1IMilet and essential to a clear understanding ofthe course I feel called on to pursue I will observe here, that 1 took no part In the selection of the delegate* to tbe convention, further than to state, when asked, the feelings oi certain individuals as to myself Moreover. should the nomination tor both terms have bean tendered me In accordance, as I believe, with tbe feelIrgs of a majority of the district, and bad I been convinced that tbe Interests of the district did not require ni) acceptance, the chaaces are. as stated to friends, that fn m considerations of a private nature, I should ha*e declined. But 1m-tb<s ss it may. I have been credibly informI fd that the ill legations from four wsrdi. at least, were | sell tied with tbe explicit undnistanding and avowed f utpofc of uiglng uiy nominatien for both terms belora ,the toiTiaUoi?that whan tbe oonventlon met, 1 waa unanimously nominated for the unexpired term, without comment or quaation, (I with thia fact to be noted.) Prerloua to the oonvention proceeding to ballot for a candidate for the 31st Congress, a member stated that he waa informed that it wae my purpose to announoe myselfM an Independent candidate In th? event of my not receiving the nomination. A friend then asked wbother the delegate bad tbU in'ormatlon from myself. Tbe reply was, no. only from rumor. My friend remarked that juattce to a candidate, demanded that he should be heard, and the convention should inform Itself. (kc.. and with this object in view, moved an aJjournment. which motion was ttrat In order. But contrary to the usage of all delibera tive bodies, the motion to adjourn waa suffered (innooently and ignorantly, 1 will not doubt, by the chairman) to be debated, and of courae. from the packed state of the convention, defeated. Thua my name was submitted to Ithe convention with the impression on the minds of its members that it was my purpoae to assume a hostile position towards tbe whig party, in tbe event ol my not being selected aa a candidate for the Slat ( ongresa. The convention aeemato have forgotten the dignity and usage assumed for the whig party for the short term. This1 nomination was made by "acclamation." To announoe myself as an ''Independent candidate' for the short term, waft, it seems, no infringement of the dignity and rights of the whig party. But the case was altered if 1 were an independent candidate for the 31st Congress. In the latter alternative, perhaps other ends were to l>s subserved, and therefore the dignity and rights of the whig p*rty could not be overlooked. Wire pullers were to be rewarded?and victory, if aohieved, did not bring its "spoils" for distribution until after the 4th of March next. 1 hope I shall not be understood as including in my remarks many highly honorable and worthy men in your convention, who. like myself, were not looking out for i wrong and injustice. Those unsuspecting gentlemen did not look so far aa to see that up to the 4th March nest, there were no | "spoils of victory" to be meted out I make no charge that any member of the convention suffered such an ! idea to cross his miml, either by the force of his own | imagination, or by the kind aid of friends. Let me, gentlemen, call your attention to the first ballot after the declaration of the delegate above alluded to. L pon the first ballot. 1 received, as 1 learn, two votes. I know, positively, who put in one of those ; the claimants for the other are to numerous, that between honorable gentlemen I will not venture a deoislon. On the second ballot I received three rotes. 1 know well who gave one of those also ; the claimants are alike numerous for the other two. 1 must again olalm to give no opinion between friends. On the third ballot 1 received two votes *h?re again my one friend stands | fast I take the liberty here to remark, that I doubt not the arrangement Ifkd been made out of the convention. and that the nomination might have been i decided aa well on the first as the fifteenth ballot, j This, however, would have shown too conclusively ! the bargained distribution of the spoils. Not withstanding all this, let it be borne in mind that the delegates from at leant four wards, were chosen for the avowed purpose of urging and supporting my nomination for both terms. Under all these circumstances, gentlemen, with the full conviction that the views and wishes of the eleotors of the distriot have been misrepresented, intentionally or otherwise, I cannot recognize the action of the convention as binding in any manner upon me. As I have borne alone and almost unaided the burden and anxiety of a contested election for the purpose of maintaining tbe purity of the ballot box. I should be derelect in principle, if 1 sanotion, by submission, misrepresentations and political intrigues, whereby the views and wishes of the people are thwarted. lean bear defeat or retire from the field, but 1 cannot lend my name to sanction intrigue and corruption; therefore, selfrespect. which 1 an not by principle or education permitted to disregard, obliges me to say, that if the whigs of tbe distrltt should deolde to ratify tbe actions and doings of their convention, 'you will please to consider such ratification as my declension of your nomination for the unexpired term of the thirtieth Congress, for the Sixth District of this State. 1 am. gentlemen, your fellow citlsen, JAS MONROE. Mcsf-rs. Edgar S. Van Winkle. Oerardus C. Clark, John Krlend, Wm. C. Barrett, John Ridley, Esqs., Committee. Theatrical and Magical. Park Theatre.?The conjunction of opera and ballet. at this house, has been most triumphantly successful. Madame Anna Bishop has raver sung better than she has during her present engagement, and we think that the peculiar manner in which she hu appeared, trusting to herself alone, without the aid of any other ringers, has served to bring out her wondeiful capablVtlep more fully than any other mode woald have done. The grand scenes from "Tancredl;*' her splendid execution of the delightful piece, "Di tanti palpitl;" the Marseillaise, in the scene of the "Barricades.'' and the various other scenas In which she has appeared, have all been most enthusiastically received. We are glad that the has been re-engaged at the Tark, as the publio can never hear enough of suoh vocalism as uhe gives them. The Monplaisir t roust, also, have been progressing finely. The charming "Esmeralda," with all its beautiful dancing, pantomime, scerery, dresses, Itc . still holds a high place in the estimation of the public It has already had a long run, and is still as attractive as ever. Kast night the house was finely attended, and the singing of Madame Bit-hop, the ballet, and the farce of "Dr. Dllworth," were never better played To-night the bili will be first rate; it will consist of two faroes. singing by Madame Bishop, and the baiiet of the"Diablea Quatre " On Wednesday evening, Madame B. will take her farewell benefit, and on that night she will accomplish tbe arduous task of appearing as "Othello," in Rossini's first act of the opera of that name, and aa"Oesuemona" in the third act; two moat opposite characters. all in one evening. Madame Bishop's superior talents will enable her to go through this performance with much ielat. Boxcar Tiihthi;.?The attraction of two new pivees. last evening, had the effect of filling the house finely. Every place wasocoupied at an early hoar,and when the cnrtain rose on the new drama of the " Swamp Fox," the immense audience were all on the tip-toe of expectation for something grand. The new drama is one in which a number of the most Interest| ing historical Incidents whloh ocourred In the cours* of the service of Central Marion, during the revei lutlonary war, are Introduced with much taot; and the ! various chances and changes of the species of guerilla 1 warfare which that great Oeneral most usually praoi tised, afford a good scope for the dramatist. The most is made of them, and the introduction of the horses, and the curious and daring feats performed by Mr. . Brown and bis steed Oaselle, were much applauded. The piece w 11 bear some pruning. Simon Suggs, 1 though a very funny character, is too continually on the stage. Some of the doings of him and his followers are too long spun out The " Swamp Fox," however, has been decidedly successful, and will, doubtless, have a long run. The ballet dancing of Slgnora Cioooa and Signor Neri, and the new local drama of the "East ! liiver Craftsman," concluded the performances. The fame bill will be repeated this evening, and those who j wish to see two beautiful dramas, besides splendid danciDg, will do wall to go this evening. Broadway Taeatrk.? Tte new and beautiful opera of the " Daughter of the Regiment,'* translated t literally and adapted to the capacity of those uncon | vers-ant with the French version, was repeated last | night, by the Segnin trovpe, whose merits require frem on no panegyrlo. It was beautifully and efflclestly ! executed, ail through, and commanded the applause it i justly merited We regret, for many reasons, the teri minalion of the engagement with tbe Seguin troupe, ' at this th< atre. They are universal favorites with the public; have been - long tried,'' and never "found wanting;'' nnd, by the valuable acquisition of Mr. lieeves and the other talents they have enlisted, may now defy a!l competition. Mrs. Seguin takes her farewell benefit this evening, and will appear in "Cinderella, '' in "The Daughter ol the Regiment," and in the second act of the opera of Ma*?aniello;" a combination of attractions rarely to be met with, and in which she will be sustained by Mr. Segnin, Reeves, and other members of the company; and let it not be forgotten, by every Iriend ot public spirit and enterprise, that to Colonel Mann, the founder of the most beautiful theatre of tlie Union, the grateful acknow ledgements rf the publle will b? devote<i, on Thursday be furnished to his public t?al. and individual respect and popularity. National Tiieai ni;.?The reproduction of three such very popular pieces ax " Ksmeralda," ' A Glance at New York," and"The Pietty Girls of 8tillberg," had the effect, last evening, of attracting one of those overflowing hou.'es for which the National la no fa1 mous. Indeed, such a thing as a poorly attended house I i> "utterly unknown at this theatre sinoe Chanfran took the helm. " Krmeralda'' was finely played. This operatic Torsion of the story is equal in Interest to any of the numerous pieces whioh hare li?en founded on Hugo's novel. We haTe, on former oocasions. spoken ot (he admirable manner in whioh the Tarious performers fulfil their parts in this piece; they were as excellent as usual last eTenlng. The ' Glanoe at New York'' was recelTed with immense applause. Mose, Sykesey, and the Tarious iramatit ptnonir in this faTorite piece, were welcomed back with the greatest enthusiasm. The " Pretty Girls of Stlllberg," with all I their excellent military mano'urringt, were greatly applauded. Nothing can be better than the various entertainments which Chanfrau nightly sets up at the I National) and the great patronage ho obtains is no matter of wonder to us who see how Indefatigable he is to give sattraction to all. The hill for this eTening will consist of the same attractive pieces, Ui nTo*'? TxkArar, ?' Dotnbey and Son" was performed again last night, and drew a crowded house. No wonder, for It is a beautiful piece, and performed with great excellence by all. and with fupetlor excellenoH by many of the performers. It Ki nii as if, notwithstanding the frequency of its performance. It was now only first beginning 10 be appreciated and understood. Nihlo'.*, A?tor Plal'b.?Mr. Macready gave a re. petition of his ' Macbeth" last eTenlng, to a numerous audience. We were strengthened In our impression that It is his greatest part, lie has learned to blend himpelf more with the character than with any other In which we haTe lately seen him. Ills apostropLe to the dagger is faultless, but yet we must confess It does not Impress an audience with that awe that Is ascribed to Garrlck's enunciation of it. Mrs Jones, excepting thore faults arising from too vehement enunciation, acted l.ady Macbeth carefully and well. We observed that she has changed the reading of the words " We fall," in the last seen* of the first act, making th< m an interrogation We had much prefirred that she adhered to her former reading, which is the only cue consonant with the oontext, and with conimon rtnse Why cannot this lady moderate the vt ht meoce of her elccntlon * She hat everything la her favor, If she but only bring under control that exu be ranee of style which painfully mari what would - "J111" ' otherwise b? good acting Mr Ryder appears to bsttwr tdTiDtip1 in Macduff than In any other part la which be ban been lately cast, and yet it in unjimt to Mr Macready not to give him the support of tiise iu tUi company who can poN'"rm it better. Chippendale, rlacide. and Sefton. an the Winches, wore re* ly excellent. and we were glad to sea their excellence wa* tiuly appreciated. Mr. Clarke, as Ban juo, deserve* much oredlt. To-night Chippendale and Sefton t?k-? a benefit, and Coleman's comedy of the u Poor CJsnfirman " will be presented, on the occasion, with sucb a rast as is rarely reen Mr H.

There will be a concert by (i brlhtow and Alfred Boucher; and the entertainments will conolude with a ' Olance at New York," In which Mr. Chanfrau will appear. Broadway Ciacvt.?The double rroupe of Messrs Welsh Delavan k Nathans, composed, as it is, of most eminent equestrians, contains within itself all the ns" cessary materials for giving most unique anil splendid l>erform?nces. Master Hernandez, who belongs to It, ig said by good judges to be unequalled by any rider of his age; be is indeed the most graceful and elegant young equestrian we have ever seen, and his riding each night U hailed with the most rapturous applause The exercises of the arena, the eplendid horses, comic ponies, dashing equestrians, funny olowns, and other very interesting features in the programmes of th? Broadway Circus, make it one ot the most agreeable placed of r?*ort la the city. To-night the programme 13 full of noveltiea. Chkijty'i MixsTRfi.s.?We bare so often eulogized these rare singers, that we (caroel j know what more to Bay about them, except that all we have hitherto said in their favor is but the strict truth; and in thU we are pure we shall be borne out by tbe thousands upon thousands who have heard them sing, at Mechanics' Hall. They are continually adding to their already extensive programme of admirable songs, and every evening some pleasing variety is introduced in their concerts. To-night they will give a fine programme. The Gf.bmania Mi'iicai. Society will give another of their elegant concerts at the Tabernacle, this evening. They oan only give this conoert and two more, as they will depart for Havana next week. Their programme is varied and extensive; the overtures, waltses, See , will be seleoted from their most favorite pieces' and the grand symphony of "D'dur" will be Introduced on this evening only. Camfuell's Minitrfli are getting on " like a house on fire," aa the saying is, for night after night their ' room at Society Library is crowded to its utmost capacity, and the applause which is lavished upon them is great; they deserve it all, for snob a fine band of singers Is seldom heard. They are introducing many new songs, and, as their programme is varied every evening, those who wish to hear them a second time need not hesitate to go for fear of hearing all the same thing* i over again. Eaoh evening a new and interesting i programme is produced. To-night they will girt an excellent one. Melodeon.?The performances at this house wIH k* of the most amusing kind this evening, a?

Apollo Rooms.?This evening, Mr. and Madam* Leati will give their first grand conoert in this city, and from all we can learn, it will be attended by a large assemblage of tbe musical dilettanti. The programme contains several beautiful eems from th? respective operas, and with the aid of Mr. JosepK Burke and Mr. R. Hoffman, we are persuaded fhe attendance at the concert of these distinguished ar usis win do commpoaurau' wun meir unities as Stttlnent vocalists.

Loss ok Life.?For the last two weeks or more, the marine column of the lltraU has been filled with the most melancholy accounts of shipwrecks and loss of life, l ivery vessel that has arrived, whether at tuis city, or in any of cur Kastern o' Southern ports, represents the storms which it encountered in the early part of this month, as being the most terrific that have been experienced upon this coast for many years. The reports of these vessels, many of which wc have published in the usual modest form under the ship news head, are thrilling sketches of a sailor's life, and are nut equalled in j*oint ol interest by any novel yet written. The incidents connected with the voyages of these vessels, which are given only under th# liiai tiic iicaU) aic n ui i inr iti iiaai 1/1 c*Cty The following account of tne loss of the schooner Mount Hop?, furnished by the captain after his rescue, will serve as a s>|tecimen of the news or items recorded daily under that head. The Captain frays:? " We sailed on the 2 Jd August, 1848, crew ofgix men and myself. All went on pleasantly till the evening of the 2Pth, in N. lit. 32, and W Ion. 73 49. when we took a heavy squall from S. S. K. Took in all sail and double reefed the for* and main-?aiU, and took the bonnet off tbe jib. At 3 r. m., encountered heavy gales from S K Took in tbe main-sail, and set the storm try-rail At 1 a.m. on tbe SOth, took in the jib and three-reefed the foresail, with every appearance of a dreadful bnrricane. At half past Si m.. the fore pail was blown out of tbe bolt rope; managed to get it in, and let her lay under the storm try-sail. The bar ricane continued to rage until 2 r. m , when the vessel wai capsized by a heavy sea, and before tbe masts could be cut away, she filled with water. When the mai-ts went, she partly righted, the main-mast going in tbe partners, and the fore-mast about 10 feet above < deck. By this time, she was full of water, and every man bad to larh himself?the sea making a perfect breach over her. Some time during the night, one ef the men, Giles Manchester, was washed overboard. The nest morning, about 8 a. m., John C. Smith and Thomas Fitzgerald, were washed overboard and drowned ; the same night Aden Heyward, the steward, died from fatigue, on the wreck. The same day the mato'a, Seth F.vans, hands were beaten to pleoes by the mast, which was continnally washed over the wreck. The next morning, she rolleu over on to bar beam ends?her larboard quarter being abont one foot out of tbe water?and continued to settlo gradually 'till 4th September, when the schr. Abigail. Capt. Jones, of Baltimore, bore down for us and took the mate, J. Dow, a seaman and nivseif off that evening, almost dead, having eaten nothing for six days, aad drunk nothing but salt water, and took us to Falmouth, Jamaica. We were quite unable to help ourse hes-even to eat?for IS days, daring whloh time tb? mate was quite delirious. I must speak in the blgbeFt terms of the kindness of Capt.
