THJ NO. 5551. 9BB HOBKZ1 OOXrVBlffTZOXrS. NO UNION. The Final Split in the Democraoy. SHOCKING RESULT. .Adjournment of the Conventions. Romk, August 15?3 P. M. The dftemoon'M Proceeding! of the Hunker and Free Soil Contention!? Immense Gathering?The Accommodations ?Great Excitement in the Hunker Convention. Both the conventions returned their sessions at 3 o'clock thin afiernson; but. as will be seen by the following proceeding*, nothing has yet transpired thatap- , peart like uniting. I understand the barnburners are very indifferent as to a unien. John Van Buren is one - r the leading members of their convention, and said, j In on* of his discussion*, this afternoon, that he was I satisfied to unite, but upon principle ! or unite upon ; giving all the ottices to the bunkers, and the principles to the free Hollers ! This novel and laughable idea of union created r^ars of laughter. However, both com mitteea have at last got together in private session' . and, by to-morrow morning, there will be something ' more known, in regard to a union of the two parties. Never were any conventions in the Empire State at- ' tended with a larger gathering than has been witnessed ! her</to day. There are, at the loweHt calculation, upwards of five thousand people here this afternoon) which is an immense number to attend a convention at so small a place as this village Accommodations here are principally at two hotels, that are not capable of holding the members of the conventions, which causes others to get a meal and a lodging where they can?some going to private houses, ] others to the saloons, itc Great dissatisfaction prevails among the majority of all who have attended these two grand political'' blow outs," in conse<{uenoe of tw* conventions being called at so small a place, where there is mot room enough to accommodate half that arrive. C. THE HUNKER CONVENTION. Romk, August 15-3 P. M. AFTERNOON SESSION. Long before the hour arrived to which the Hunker Oonveution adjourned to. the Presbyterian church was one eomplrte jam of delegates, ladies, and people from all *cctious of the country. The President. Kx-Governor Marcy. came into the convention, where the members had assembled, and. upon calling them to order, Mr. Daniel E. Sickles, one of the New Vork delegation, jnoved that the convention take a recess till 5 o'clock, so as to give the barnburners time enough to act upon the resolution that was passed by this body in the forenoon, and a copy sent to the other convention, to appoint a committee for negotiating a harmony and reunion. This resolution ?a< passed for the sole purpose of commuuicating with the Barnburner Convention ! During the adjournment for dinner, the resolution was dcrputcbed to the President of the barnburners by President Marcy. accompanied by a communication from the ex-Ooverner, asking them | to appoint a oommitteee to act upon the enoloaed document. The members of this convention evidently wished to wait and see in what light the other faotiou viewed the hunker resolution, and the letter that had been transmitted to them The creation of taking a recess till $ o'clock was finally put, and ioat, but as no business coutd be proceeded with till some word should be received from the otker convention, the convention became a scene of eonfosion, and bad to be called to order, when Chancellor WiiwosiH arose and asked the Prwident whether the resolution that was passed by this convention this morning, bad been sent to the other organization before tbey commenced their afternoon session. Ha was answered that it was not delivered to them till after they bad opened their afternoon session. Nothing further being at preteut in order, quite a uumbvr of the members of this cenventlon left the church, and tarted for the Baptist church, to see what the free oilers were about But a few moments had passed, when a messenger came in from the barnburners, and handed a communication to President Marcy from the gentleman who presides over the barnburner organisation, now in session at the Baptist church This communication, also, had the following barnburner resolutions enclosed, they were both resd to the convention, which ainated ?c>? t?s Hs rtsiH'tMrtmht ir tlirm to the committee, or have them laid on the table. i The following is a copy of the letter from William Tay lor, mo rrwiaeii 01 me oinrr convention :? i Hon.

After the above wera read to tbe convention, tha question came before them, whether tbeee resolutions nd letters received from the barnburners . should be Adopted by the convention, or referred to the committee that has been appointed to confer with the barnburners' committee Thi* question caused debate by members in ail parts ot the church-some to amend the question, others to refer them while others were in fnvor of having them sent back to tbe other conven- : i tion ' The various views upoa this subject created (Trent eicltement among the vast number In attendance.

But as the great (mention of s slavery baa recently become a subject or agitation in the di mocratio ranks in this State, it nuit in some c way be disposed of. before we can hope for the restora- c tioa of harmony and good feeling among all the mem- i b< rs of the democratic party. The people of the North and of the South, as is well known, entertain different . and adverse diews from each other, and even among themselves, on the subject of slavery. It now Is. and for a long time bas bean so: and while one region tole- . rates and the othtr prohibits slavery, nothing like unity of views on this subject, among the members at J the democratic party of the whole I'nion can be expected There is no doubt that the general sentiment 1 at the North is against the introduction of slavery into territoritl** now free; yet. as members of a political party, we cannot admit that a aoncurrence in tnat sentiment should be considered as a democratic principle; Ot be allowed to be made a tei<t ot democracy in any part of tbe Lulled States; and we are not willing that it should be made so here. The democracy of New York is a part of the national democratic party; whieh party can only hope for triumph bv preserving its ranks unbroken throughout the entire Uuion, and this oaunot be expected or even hoped for. if opinions upon the subject of slavery are allowed to be made a matter of party faith, or to form the baids of party organiiation, cither at tbe North or the South. The democracy of the I'nited States, well knowing this, have at ail times studiously excluded the subject of slavery from their platform < f principles, leaving %very one to the enjoyment of his own principles upon that subject, and to act thereon as he should thiuk proper; holding tint a Southern man. who sustained the Institution of slavery, was not. for that cause, less sound, as a democrat, than the Northern man. whose views were of an opposite character. These b%ve always been tlw views ol the democratic party, and here we propose to leave all questions upon the subject of flavery. If you concert with us in these views, holding tnat individual difference of opinion upou the subject in question must be allowed to exist, mid that the opinion ol no one on that subject can rightfully be called In question, as Involving departure from democratic principles, or be considered a test of Ms democracy, and are ready to act with us oh that bar-Is. in the support of the regularly nominated candidates of the deuioaracy of the State and ot tha Nation, we are prepared to join in securing the formation of a State ticket, satisfactory to both conventions, and ta the democracy at large. 11.

Mr. Pskstow Kino appeared, and stated on behalf of the Committee of Conference appointed by thi#40on entlon to confer with the committee representing the other convention, that he. with hia colleagues, had met the other committee at the Academy in this village; that several propositions in writing had paused between the two committees upon the subject of union Mr. King then proceeded to read the various propositions in writing, which had been made by the committees to eaoh other. Mr. King having concluded the reading of the correspondence between thi) committees. Mr. Loomis, of Herkimer, said he held In his hand a communicotion. which he olTered as nn Individual member of this convention, and not as a member of the Committee of Conference; he was, however, happy to ray that the members of that conuiittee entirely concurred in the prepositions Set forth in the communication. He moved that it be transmitted to the other convention as a proposition emanating from this con vcntlon. and directed to that body. Mr. L then submitted the followlug resolution, with the communication appended to it. Kesnlved. That the committee appointed to nogotlat* with a committee of the other convention, be instructed to deliver to that committee, with a request to present the same to the body it represents, the following communication from this convention : The democratic convention assembled at the Baptist church in this village, unwilling to dissolve without further effort to effect the object for which they were delegated, respectfully submit to the democratic ooa* vention assembled at the Presbyterian church, the following suggestions and invitation : Satislieil that the resolutions yesterday adopted and eonimuuicattd by this convention to your body are sound and democratic in principle?oonfldent that they are the sentiments of a vast majority of the people of this State, and especially of the democratic party -regarding their public avowal by the representatives of the democratic party of this State, at this time, as essential to the best interests of the country?and believing that the election of democratic candidates to the ?t*te offices cannot be seoured even upon a united action of these two conventions, without a distinct announcement of the principles of these resolutions?this convention teels constrained to Insist upon them as a frank expression of the views entertained by the great body of the democratic party of this Utate It regards this expression as alike due to the party in this Stateto their brethren In the Southern States?and to the world?that there may be no concealment of the real sentiments of the people on the subject. While they are thus tenacious m this point, they are free to say, that they propose It as n6 test of auy man's individual demooracv, or of his right to membership and association with the party, hach individual may. and of necessity must, entertain such opinions as his judgment dictates Perfect freedom of individual opinion constitutes the very basis of democracy; anil this convention, while it feels it a duty to express these principles in accordance with those of the party It represents. does not take upon itself to deny any man's right to association with the democratic party ?... . u.nr.rum >u u|">u mis or auy outer pi'1 111.

If this invitation should be accepted. the members of this convention will be prepared. in their joint action with those of the other, to make the mest liberal conceptions upon any other m?ttets of detail iu the buslneas which may occupy the attention of the united convention, and to unite with them in cordial haruiony In the support of democratlo meu Ml measure*, without regard to the past. This communication was received with tremendoua enlhusiaz-m It having been read Mr. Loom* proceeded to deny that this convention insisted upon the proviso as a test of democracy; they did ne such thing ; he thought it the right of any member of the democratic party to differ with hlin na n the question of slavery It had often been his mvsfortun* to differ with hii democratic friends upon certain questions of public policy; but suspicions In relation to the sincerity of his political opinions had never been entertained Mr Loomls spoke calmly and forcibly; hie speech ?ai entirely original in it* bearlog It was one of the most logical and conclusive argurot nts that lever beard lie ridiculed the Idea that It ?a< Inexpedient to express our opinion upon any subject of interest to the country ; he believed tbat no (ears of disunion should deter us from agitating any question, or from expressing oar opinion upon Its merits lie ?as uot aware of the time when any party in the Kouth had.

In reply to the Intimations which had been made by the other organisation, tbat the free soli party Insisted upon the application of the Wilmot proviso principle, as a political test. Mr Van Buren said, to declare a principle, and to make It a political test, you must declare that you will support no Iran for any office who does not approve of the principle so declared We had never made snch an applleatloa of the principle of antl slavery We had repeatedly disclaimed the Intention of subjecting any democrat to such a test Rut when the election was approaching last fall, the Statas of Oeorgia South l arolioa, Alabama, kr , lie . eipreaely affirmed their constitutional right to Introduce slavery Into California If the Heutb had storned there, ami >nn> no further.
