'Vnioiirrm Hew York, W?duc?ilay, January 17, Tlie Moutilerii Convention, We have received some umber intelligence, by telegraph, respecting the movements of the Convention of the Southern lepresentatlves at Washington. The report, which was drawn up by Mr. Calhoun, with the assistance of Mr. Btyly, was read by Mr. Venable. Mr. Clayton, who led the opposition, spoke against it. when considerable discussion ensued, and it waa timely recommitted t,> the same c< mmittee, with instructions. One ground ot objection taken to the report was iis inserting that organized bodies of men existed through the free States, even re.ichtng iato Canada, for the purpose or aiding the escape o slaves from their masters. We confess we are somewhat surprised that such a stutement was made in the report. Mr. Calhoun ought to be aware that these organ zed ban Is are neither supported nor sanctioned by the intelligent and influential portion of the community in the North. We are as much opposed to the fanatic and unconsti tutional movements of the abolitionists and their kindred associates in this qun'ter, as Mr. Calhoun; and we have been most strenuous and unceasing in our efforts to point out and expose the fatuity and folly of their proceedines. In doing so, we only gave expression to the general feeling of the rational portion of the community in the free States. We think, therefore, that the report, in denouncing the North in such a general manner, and involving us all in tlie insane proceedings of the anti-slavery agitators, is too sweeping in its charge and too general in its denunciation. We nre also ot opinion that the complexion given to the question by the nhle statesman of South Carolina, is not compatible with his own real intentions and lwlty aspirations for the welfare and gloiy of this great republic. The present movemcnf among the Southern members, as developed by this report, would clearly give indications *>t nil intention to make this a sectional and geographical q if Bfion. The sanction of such names as those appended to the report, would, indeed, have a most pr-judtcial tendency, were it not well krown that their integrity and patriotism are net only bey< < d dia <ute, but Hbove suspicion, it is vary much to be lam?nte 1, therefore, that the ph-useology adopted should give a handle to the ult as of the North, to call iu question the patriotic feelings ot its authors. Tnere are other points in the proceedings which we wi'l refer to on a future occasion; but we cannot allow the present opportunity to pass without entering our protest, in the strongest manner that language can convey, against the unwarrantable and unprecedented exclusion ef the press from the Senate chamber. A moio outrageous and arbitrary proceeding was never before resorted to in a free country. The despots of Europe, whose firmest pto i is in tl e ignorance of those over whom they rule, never exceeded such an act in thei whole career of tj fanny. And what were the rea sous assigned tor this unheard of proceeding? We have not, as yet, been favored with a single one that deseives to he seiiously noticed. There wes no necessity in the woild for this ex cluei n. The talented and high y respectable gen tlemen who com. osed the convention, were not a band of forgers, burglats, or outlaws. They were met in solemn ronclave, for the purpose of d> lthe rating on such measures as they honeBtly believed to be most conducive to the interests of their constituerts, and to fence round with greater security an institution whose existence and inviolability arc guaranteed by the constitution. Why, then, should they be atraid to let their senti. ments go abroad 1 If they fear public optnioD, or ?Te apprehensive that the stability ol slavery is to be ennaidiztd b. the presence of the reporters, is not this a confession ot the weakness uf their cau<e, end the strongest testim my they could furnish to the world of their own want of confder.ce, and pusillanimity 1 This was a great mistake; and if a mistake, accordii gtothe subtle Talleyrand, be of % more moment in pol tical strategy, than a crime, it should have the effect of preventing a recurrence of such treatment to the press on future occasion* There must be no hole-and-corner work in a free republic. The bare attempt at such a thing is the strongest possible condemnation of those who reso t to it. Closed door* and star chambers may do very well lor the worn out despotisms of Europe; but they cannot, and we hope nsver will, be acclimated to this latitude. We see by the sjieech <>f the hon. member from South Carolina, that he would prefer the alternative ol a dissolution of the Union to the extension of the Wilmot proviso to the new territories. Whatever opinion may be entertained on this declaration, we are sure it mu9t be a source of g neral regTet that it trii* up the heels of our amiable friends Lucretia Mott, Abby Folsom, and the other feminine notorieties who have been lately spouting so eloquently to the same effect. It will complet-ly spoil (heir stock n rade; and unless some new dodge" is suggested for our fair orators, we tremble tor th? consequences. In the absence of something bett?r, what would these ladies think of trip to California 1 There is neither king, nor president, nor law there. I' would just he tho field for their future labors. They could fashion these things as they pleased, and realize the Utopia which unfortunately has never yet existed, but in the imaginations of the poets. The English Press and Mr. Poi.k'- Message. In an article which appeared in our p iper the other day, we stated that the affairs of the United States never occupied so much attention from foreigners, and particularly from English journalists, us t'iey have done lor the last lour years, especially since the breaking out of the war with Mexico. Our mBtnutiona, < ur elections, our party quarrels?eve y thing, in fact, connected w ith our country?have, within a comparatively shoit period, been topics of observation and discussion, by the journals of England and other countries of Europe, and of conversation among the people of that region, to a greater extent than they ever were before. We ehall rejieat what w<- then stated on the same subject, that with all the knowledge and familiarity which they pretend to have on the subject, there is a great deul of error, and poai ive and malicious mif-itntement. The error is excusable, because It emanates from those of our transatlantic neighbor who cannot, in the nature of ihts'w, comment tinderfctandinply on what they know nothing of; but the misstatements cannot be overlooked, lor mnltrr jtreprvu pervadea them all, und in ptrc |>tive throughout every sentence. To be assured ol the fact that the English press have at length discovered that there is ?oin?thing American woithy of being trinferred to their colt runs, and deserving of comment and remark, ttr nadirs need but refer to the vuriojs articles i which have appeared recently in the transatlantic Journals, oi which the message of Mr. Polk formed the subject. For a wonder, the London 7Sn<? siiesks fairly for once, and as it is not often our cotemporury has a kindly word for us, we are induced to transfer a few of its remarks to our columns. In alluding to that porticn of the President's mes. page which treats of the progress of the United States, the Timet says i? " Mr Polk bis siren an aeoount of American pro... ... .a. 11.. I.*....* n<lmUa?U? *9 grew wmro whi exonti " the Old World. In the history of States. there never ene *uy thing ho mold, end never did a preternatural growth appear to rest on so solid a foundation. All that one has erer read of famlllea multlolled a* the sauds on the era shore. of (warming tribes of rising cities and prosperous commonwealths seems oonnen frated end magnified io this modern prodigy, whoee A nglo-Saxon o.igin suggests in us no many regrets, and not a little pride." This is very flattering indeed, and we wish we could return the compliment. The fact, however, is apparent, that for every step which we take in a forward direction, England goes back one. Every individual of her population, whom the corruption and extravagance of her government drives to our shcreB, decreases her power and resources, and adds to ours. Every revolution which takes place in Europe, proves to the world the permanence and stability of < nr government and institutions, and the certain i nt) inevitable fate which sooner or later awaits England, as she is now constituted, in respect to the form of her government. Passing this over, however, we come to a portion of the remarks made by the Turet, which we desire to conect. In speaking of the election of General Taylor, and the non-election of Mr. Polk, that journal says :? But while we pass over domestic and eonjeotural difflculties, it is impossible to f.irgst that the man who la doting so brilliant a prasldsnoy, who has stretched the cords i f his tabernacle to the TaeiOa ooean, and almost to the Isthmus of Panama who boasts that by his measures he has saved thu commerce and the credit ofbis country from exeesslre Inflation and deadly collapse is nevertheless rejected by the people ue has served, finds himself not re-appointed, and a successor, holding oilier views, Installed in his room. Such a facr cctdemns either the man or the natiou. One of them aunt be wrong." Much surprise cannot be entertained at these remarks, coming from this source. It is impossible for the editor of the Timet to speak understundingly on subjects which he cannot estimate properly, and of which, at the best, he can have lint on lintiwrlpfif fii in pt I it I < 111 nf Tito nrinmnla n n uul ?? ?i.,.v.,vv. vv..vMM.vM v.. X..V Ull which our government is based is that the majority shall rule. This is our boasted privilege, asd it is one of which we are proud. When the nation, by the medium of the ballot, declares the will of the majority of its citizens, the minority bow in acquiescence to the will thus expressed. The mtuority having declared in favor of another man than Mr. Polk, the minority are satisfied. All are excited previous to our elections, and during the canvass, and the minority submit cheerfully to the result, whatever it may be; and it is on this account that we are clear ol revolutions. We have a revolution every lour years; but in those periodical changes of our government and lufers, we spill no blood, we resort not to physical force. Our weapon is the ballot, a harmless piece ol paper, with the names of candidates of our choice printed upon it?the said paper not being large enough to (orm wadding for a pistol ball. We deposit that ample piece of paper in the ballot-box, and thus the will of the people is expressed. How truly simple, yet how peihct, and .|U6t, and satisfactory! Now, a majority of the people, at the recent presi dettial election, decided in favor of Old Zack, precisely in the same way as the people of France, on a very recent occasion, decided on having Louis Napoleon as their President, and all excitement with us has ceased. Every one is satisfied, because the majority rules. At the end ol lour years, the people of the United States will elect another President. The fortunate candidate may be the same Old Zack, or he may be another, but whoever he maybe, the majority will rule. Thus we will go on, from time to time?the people voting, the majority ruling?and thus we I hope we shall go until the end, whiqh wc again hope and feel is a long way off. Mr. Polk has, to be surp, been rejected by the people, and so has Gen. Cass ; and if the Times thinks that, in rejecting them, a slur has been cast ou enher, it is petlcctly welcome to do so. The nation, however, is not wrong; and, to say the least, that journal, in drawing its premises and its conclusion, knows very little of the woTktngB of our institutions. Tlie time, however, may not be fur distant when the people of England will imitate those ol France in modeling a constitution alter that ot the United Ufofoa jvaiv 0. TllK CHARACTER OF THK CALIFORNIA EMIGRANTS.?The emigrants now leaving us for California appear to be remarkably orderly, respectable, and intelligent They are men of cnprgy and enterprise, and full of enthusiasm. It is a character of the emiiration that we do not (as we willingly would) get rid of the worst part?the idle, the rowdies, the vagabonds?ofour population; but we lose?with regret we say it?the fi.,est portion of our youth, and in all cases such as possess some means?such as are not impelled t> emigrate by want, but who rush forward in eager haste to the golden regions, from sheer ambition. The dissolute, idle, and necessitous, who with brawny arms and active limbs encumber our almshouses, and fill our streets with mendicants or burglars, are those who are It tt behind ; not that the love of gold is less proft uudly impressed upon their hearts, but that the) want the means of conveying them away to the Ecene of the general scramble. So much the better for California?so much the worse for us. Our great city is a vast reservoir, into which streams of humanity arc ever pouring from all parts of the world ; and in these streams there come, sometimes, mixed up in the mass, some foul waters which stagnate among in. We want some sewer, occasionally, te carry them off. Meantime, the stream flowing from us to California is a portion of our strentcli and our pride. it so. Rather than regretting it, let us hope that our chivalrous and adventurous ) ouih who are hurrying forward to the El Dorado, may in a year or two return I home nmnnrr us. hnvinir auccpf ded in oKt iininrr MV...W ? ?? o * ?

I Tiik Pop* Still at Gakta.?By ihe last account* which we received from Europe we were inh imed tlrat his Holiness, .be Pope, was still at Gneta, to which place he fled to secure his person ?l *st?ty. He fad positively refused to return to Bome, unless all the measures which had been 'iikeu by the people to form a government o! their own were disowned aud stopped, and the news, papers suppressed. lu taking this course, the Pope, we think, has nnt shown much sagacity. He should either have disregarded his jiersonal safety, by staying at Rome at all hazards, or having fled, as he has cone, take the consequences. It was not a9 the spiritual head of the church, but as a temporal potentate, that he was dethroned. If the people under his dominion desired a republican form t;f government, and could achieve one by (evolution, they had a perfect right to do so, according to the principle that governors hold rule only according to the will of the governed. As a temporal prince, the Pope is nothing more than any . <1, ... /> I km cirMntiiul uf triluitaci utu U ,>u^ ?llir I IU1CI VI UIO ^ja4?iiv?u.a uui iuuvbO| nc uavc no hing to say. He may or may not be a temporal prince again. Matters in that region certainly look qually, but his deposition ia only another art in the great revolutionary drama now being enacted in Europe; and there is no doubt that it will be succeeded by others equally as important, but equally showing the onward progress of the age. Some of the great powers may combine torestore his Holiness; but the experiment may be u dangerous one. The whole of Europe is in an anomalous and remarkable condition. The fire of revolution smoulders in every part of it. Be. fore the year 18-19 shall have run its course, the example of France may be followed by other countries, and thrones now apparently stable ^nd secure muy be razed to the ground. A year in European history, at this period of the world's history, is as fruitful of changes as centuries were in past times ; and a train ot great developements may arise from any attempt to replace his Holiness in the position which he occupied a few weeks since. Every day, however, adds to the probacility that the people will be the future sovereigns of llonie. _____ INTEKf 8T1NO FROM I'RAZIL ANn THE lllTKIt La Pi ate?The Ilan bugh balk Magdalenn, from Rio Janeiro, in which Captain Peabody, of this city, came passenger, arrived yesterday, witlfintelligerice from that place to the 1st ult., and from the river down to a recent date. Thp frioate Brandy wine and the brie Perrv were in tlie harbor of Rte when the Mugdalena left. Mr. Aspinwall'B mail eteamer California sailed for Valparaiso on the 25th of November. The steamer Iniperatriz arrived at Uio on the 24th November, bringing accounts from the following porte?viz: from Para to the 29th, and Mnranbnm to the 31st October; from Ceara to the Gib, 1'araliiba to the 8th, Pernambuco to the 15th, and Buhia to the 19th November. At Para, Maranham, C? ara, and ParahiLa nothing of importance had occurred. These provinces conI tinued i erfectly quiet. As to l'ernemhuco, "We regret," saya the Rio Jornal do Cctutriio, "to have to announce that previous aeconnta of disturbances there were well founded." The Diarin dc Perntmbuco Etates that all the rising was limited to a few wandering bands that were prowling about from village to village, and that they would quickly disappear before the combined forces of the authorities and the friends ofluw and order; whilst the Diarin Novo, on the contrary, describes the province as being in a complete state of revolt tit consequence of the injudicious efforts of the government. The official papers, however, give accounts of the complete overthrow of the rebels. The Diarin dt Pernambuco adds, that as soon as the President of Parahiba was informed of the movement of the rebe's, he ordered a large force to march at once to the provinceof Pedras de Fogo, with orders to assist the legal authorities of Goianna and other parts where their presence might be necessary. Lieutenant Colonel Favillo has also arrived at Pernambuco from Ceara with his battalion. The elections for the municipal offices and justices of the peace had been further postponed to the 17th December.

Wu hiudtoj, JAB. 19,1849, AmoDg the reasons assigned for not opening tbe door, to tbe reporter, end to the public lent evening, ! wu one stating th*t the journal of the doing! would ha<? been published, and furthermore, that had the , publio been admitted, there would hare been danger of exoitenent and uproar In tbe allerles, aa diaouaaion might prog rear. The Convention bad no sergeant at arras to k<ep order; therefore it waa voted to hold the meeting with elored door a. Mr Vbmblk, of North Carolina, read the ad lreaa, which was drawn up by Mr. Calhoun, with Mr. Bayly's assistance. Speeches were made against he nddrevs, by Mr. Clayton, of Delaware, Mr. Stephens end Mr. Toombs of Oeorg'a. Mr. Morehead and Mr. Underwood of Kentuoky, and Mr Gentry of Tennessee; and the adlresa was advocated by Mr Calhoun, Mr Baylv,Mr. Gayle of Alabama, Mr. Mason of Virginia, Mr. Wusteott, and JelTerao:i Davis, ?f Miesiasi pi. Speechee were made in favor of aetlon, and of modifying tbe address, by Mr. Berrien and Mr. MoKay. The ad dm a was opposed on several grounds; one that it assarts that organised bodies of man existed tbrongb the States, reaching into Canada, to aid slaves in esoaping from servioe. The'proof of thU portion was wanting Another reason was, the address declared that the North bad raised false issues, bj charging the Sonth with legislating In Co ngress with the view of extending slavery, while the South openly danled the charge, and proclaimed tbat there was no authority to restriot or expand slavery. Mr Toombs oould not sanction this, as he had taken opposite grounds in CongTess, last session. Another reason for opposing the addresq, was tbat it proposed no definite chart for action, but left all to risk as to the future. The address was finally recommitted to the same committoe, without instructions. Mr. Bkxrikn moved instructions, but they were rejected. The committee is to report next Monday evening* until when ibe meeting stands adjourned Several members of the committee got excused from further serving. Among them were Mr Stephens, Mr. Clayton. Mr. Rusk, Mr. Chipmao. and Mr. Moreheai. The address gives an enumeration of acts cf aggression of the North upon the institution of slavery, as guaranteed by the constitution. SECOND DESPATCH. Washington, January 16?P. M. The Southern Congressional oauous met athalf-past stfven o'olock last evening, in the Senate Ccamber There were between eighty and ninety Southern members of the two houses present. General Houston moved that tbo galleries be opined to the reporters and the people. It was lost, by a vote Of 56 to 34. Mr. Calhoun, from the Committee of Fifteen, presented the address prepared by the committee, and the proceedings of the oommlttee and its sub-committee of five. It appears tbat the address of Mr. Calhoun, as rendered to the committee of five, recommended the resistance of the South to the enforcement of the Wilmot proviso. Mr. Clayton, of the Sub-Committee, moved to strike out that part, which was agreed to. The address was then adopted by tbe committee, 3 to 2; Messrs Calhoun, King, and Bayly for It, and Messrs Morehead and Clayton opposed to It. The address submitted to the main committee of fifteen, was adopted, 8 to 7; Mr. Rusk voting, with six whigs against it. As thus agreed to; it was then submitted to thegeaeral caucus by Mr. Calhoun, and read. Mr Footc moved that the address be resetted. Mr. Morlhkao objected to the motion; he did not understand it; he thought the paper was reoeired when presented. Mr. Foot r withdrew the motion, and moved a resolution that f uch members of tbe meeting as thought proper, should sign the address, and that it be kept open for twenty-four hours for others to sign. Mr. Morshkad objected to the proceeding. It wa* equivalent tu a dissolution of the meeting, without any espreselon of opinion upon the address. The address is a recapitulation of the aggressions of the North upon tbe institution of slavery, and recommends union among the people of the South, in view of the great danger at band. Tbe motion of Mr. Foote, as understood, was withdrawn. Mr Ci.attos moved to lay the address upon the ta ble. as a test question. Mr Calhoun objected, as the motion at once irrestod the privilege of discussion. Mr. Clayton withdrew the motion for the present, for tbe purpose of affording privilege for debate Mr. Calhoun took the floor, urging a dittolulion of the Union at pi tferah.'e to the tuhminion of the South to the enforcement of the Wilmut pronto in refereaoe to the new teiritorlee. Mr. Batlt compared tbe grievances of the South to those of the oolnnip* of America, which drove them to rebellion. Mr Undkiiwooo a-ked if the gentleman from Virginia wished this address to go out as a declaration of Independence? Mr. Bati.t?" Ob. not yet " Mr. Moiiehi ai> mottd a eerlee of rs'olutlons. de clerirg the Union Indivieible?the prosperity of the States and the happiness of the people d?p> ndvnt upon it; that the late movement tor the aholttlon of slavery, In the Dlstrotof Columbia, violated the sp'rit of the corstitutiou; and that the South were opposed to the Wilmot proviso; but (hit they believed the whole question would be settled, by a spirit of oomprotniit, In a manner acceptable to both sections of the Union. Mr. Calhoun said be would agree to those resolutions with the addition of another declaring that the South would prefer dissolution to the abolition of slavery through the aggressions of the North Mr. Mosshisd replied in vindication of the Union, Mr '"Oil asked if the gentleman from Kentucky would consent t0 su,,t*to tho Unlen If the Wilmot proviso were passed in r;,8^noe t0 th* new *wHoriss?

If the neee*<ity for meeting e uoh attack* abould come, he would be prepared to ancwer ; but he did not anticipate any*u?h neceaeity. lie made a ctrong and earneat appeal In behalf of adherence to the L'mon. Merara Calhoun, Bayly, and Holme*,on the one aide, and Meear* I'nderwood. Morehead, llonaton, Ruck. Clayton and other*, on the other, kept up tbe d.-bat* till near 12 o'clock at night. Mr Stkpiil^h waa for the Union; and with tbe view of ending there cauc.uaea, moved an adjournmeut, line ihe ; but the motion wet loat. AO to 30 Mr. Br nniar* believed that all talk of dlccolutioa wn idle ; that tho Idea of disunion oould net be enter talced ; that tbe thing wae Impoielble; that the people of tbe country oould never be perauadedor driven to that eatremity ; that they loved tbe Union, and knew it* ti ue too well to concent to Ita diacolutlon. He would prefer.
