Ihe Know Nothlw g Convention at Philadelphia, ?ftsr three dtji' df'.utc, ud unidit the most IntonM excitement , laa?, night came to a declal >n ?a the slavery questi# n. The report of the minority , that fe* Missouri compromise should be restored, was defeated by 'forty majority; all the compromises s*d make/sMita proposed shared the same fate, and fee reecyntieaa of the majority of the Platform Com mittee were sus'ained by a very decisive vote. Iktt'd rese'utious, in substance, deprecate all aglte. fees. of the slavery question, favor the execution of fee Fugitive Slave law, and declare ttat Congress . -?ocht not to legldate upon the subject of slavery to the Territories or as it exists in the District of ffofryifrfa This knotty point being settled, tte Convention will probably next resume the consi gnation of the naturalization question. Although our despatches from Philadelphia m*ke M mention cf any form?l bolting of the abolition Motion, the report of the proceedings of the fanatics ???negated yesterday at Cleveland, Ohio, which ma publish, is conducive evlden ;e that the aboli ttuTists have set up for themselves. The Know Somethings, organized under the presidency of John W. Btebblns, of Rochester, adopted the tide of the Republican party, appointed oommitteee, and mm up the black flag, with freedom and Protestant tarn, without regard to party predilections, color, raos, or condition, inscribed on its foldB. The convention hi represented as bring very enthusiastic. Gen. Wilson and ex Governor Boutwell, of Mamaahu setts, are expected to take part in Its d&liberations, bet there is a reasonable doubt as to the latter gentleman's participation. The New Hampshire House of Representatives yesterday sleeted J smes Ball and John P. Hale t j Mm United States Senate, the former for the long Mm and the latter for tae short term. Mr. BeU received 224 out of 311 voteo, and Mr. Hale receiv ed 208 ont oi 307 votes cast. The democratic can . didates, Hibbard and Wells, received 81 and 82 votes respectively. The State Senate will probably go into an election in a day or two. By the arrival of the steamship Atlantis yeater , fey morning, we are In possession of seven days ?lev intelligence from Europe. Her ne*s is of a Mghly Important character. On the nights of the 13d aad 24th of May, Ganeral Pellssler inaugurated ihe commencement of a ssriM of vigorous opera tions. in the Crimea, by carrying a fortified open apace between the central bastion of the fortiftoa" tiens ef Sebastcpol and the sea, from whence it was Mended to support the sorties of the garrison. Prem 6,000 to 6,000 Russians are stated to have been tut hort de combat in this affair. Ike second expedition to Kertc'a had baen at tended with brilliant success. Tne allied troops were disembarked at that town on Queen Viotoria s .birthday, and the Russians fled, blowing up their fortifications on bath sides of the straits and de ?tieying their steamers. Ten vessels and fifty gaas fell into the hands of the sllieB. Subsequent des patches from Sir George Brawn and Sir EJannd LyoES had announced the destruction of four Bus eiaa wnr .-teamers and of large depots of cjrn by fee Russiaus themselves. The allied troops hid eoeceeded in blowing up a magazine at Arab it, aad in destroying about one hundred merchant vemels. We some turther reference to this affair in ?or editorial cjlnmns. Nothing has as yet been d>ne by the allied flaets to the Baltic. They arc anchored within sixtean rnllen of Crenstadt. The further peace conferences ann juiced as being about to be held at Vienna, on the 28th, had aot taken place, the necessary Instructions from London not having arrived. We notioeinthe Gazelte de France a rumor that ? conference between the Enperor Alexander and eereral other sovereigns, (names not specified,) was ?bont to be held at Myskovitz. The Czar was to bs Accompanied there by his mother. The following statement appears in the last nam ber of the Indipendence Beige: ? "As the anticipated eommentai y of the note in the Moniteur on the fortifications of Kamiesch, there was a rumor gene rally current yesterday in Paris that If the new ?pe rations commenced by General Peliss'er had for remit to beat the Russian army in the field, and to ?ocupy the southern part of Sebastopol, tie allies wonld not push further their succesiM on that side, and would quit the Crimea -leaving merely a gar. tiaon of 20,000 men at Kamlecch. This Is at yet only a rumor, to which the note published this mcrning by the Moniteur gives a oertaia consis tency." We copy from tbe Moniteur the reply of Count Walcwtkl, the new French Minister of Foreign .Affairs, to the note recently published by C.?ui.t Neaselrode, giving the Russian version of the late negotiations at Vienna. Count Walewski's answer to written with more ability than we hid given him end it for. It has probably bsen drawn up by M. de Thcnvenel. Tbtre has been an attempt at a Carlist insurreo tion at 8mgo?sa. The government had, however, bo difficulty in potting an extinguisher upon it. The Pope is going to excommunicate Sardinia, *fter all.

Our Havana correspondence, published in Maotber column, states that a rumor prevailed previous to the departure of the steamer, toat General Cojc a liad beea supfcrsedeu. The name Of bis enocesoor had sot tract pircd. The unfortunate FeUx sailed for Cadiz on the 1st Inst., but what hia tate may be ultimate>y is uu known. The report relative to the voluntary abolition of slavery by the plasters is said to be well founded, however absurd it appears. The dry gocds store of J. W. Fryer 4 Co., of A ? bany, was entered and robbed of 18,000 worth of property on Tuesday night. Yesterday morning Gzorge Robertson, David King, John 8m. th, and Samuel Fisher, all of tnis city, were arrested on toard a yac'. t at the dock a4i Castleten, by the po lice of Albany.

Tin brig Delafieid, also arrived yesterday from iho same place, list two of her seamen- John Smit.i, on shore on the 23d, and at sea on the 7th Inst., John H. Bogirt, both by yellow fever. The case of Lyman Cole wm adjourned yesterday, the District Attorney refusing to fix the day on which it should be resumed, and stiting that be would try him on some other indictment. In regard to the contempt cue, Mr. Busteed intends that it shall come on if possible on Saturday morning next. The Board of Aldermen met in convention last evening, in pursuance of a resolution passed on the 6th in st., for the purpose of appoiating the civil and criminal court clerks of this eity, and their de* liberations resulted in tbe election of clerks for three districts, among whom was Wm. H. Ganniff, lone connected with the daily press, who reoeived a unanimous vote. In the Board of Councilmen a loag preamble and resolutions were offered, lesturing the Mayor for his denial of the right of the Board to interfere with the police Jotoe, and postponing indefinitely the pro pssition to add thirty threa members to tbe police department. This pitiful attempt to snub the Mayor will fail to have the effect intended by its promoters. The Commissioners of Emigration last evening appropriated one thousaod dollars t j defray the ex pense of preparing Castle Garden for the reception of emigrants. A series af rules regulating the land ing of passengers were adopted. In consequence of the abeeneo of the Mayor and the Reoorder last evening, the Board of Supervisors were unable to organize for the transaction of the ordinary business. A few bills were received and referred, And the Board adjourned to the first Mon day in July. The American Council at Philadelphia ? Itl Probable Benin. ! Whatever may be the results of the present I discussion on the platform of the American 1 party, the meeting of the Convention at Phila delphia must exercise a wido and potent influ ence on the movemqpts of partiee between this and the next Presidential election. It is quite doubtful whether this influence cau be seriously I affected by the upshot of the pending discus sion on the platform. It would .probably be felt none the less, even though the Convention were to split asunder on the slavery question. Whatever may be done now, the past course and policy ot the Enow Nothing body has al ready given a new direction to the political tide, and it Beems very utlikely that an; event can intercept its effect upon the elections of the next two years and the Presidential contest of We Lave already published an estimate ? founded on the recent elections in Massachu setts and Virginia, and also on the recorded number of the American Councils in the seve ral States ? which goes to show that the number of Know Nothing votes in the United States falls but little short at the present time of a million and a half. This great number of citi zens are probably divided amotag from five to six thousand separate Councils. Now these are great and important facts. The organization, under a comprehen sive name and with a view to the election of a President, of such a va t body of men is a fact far more important and significative than all tbe abstractions or philosophical theories that may be incorporated in or excluded from the plattorm of the party. It is manifest that the old whig party has al ready disappeared from the face of the earth. Not a single wreck of its former self survives in any of tbe States in any political shape ; h< re. we have now and then a galvanic twitch frc m the corpse, but it only serves to bring ri dicule on a relic of antiquity which ought to be respectable, and meets with no port of re sponse in any of the other States. It becomes, duy by day more evident that the great con test in 1856 mnst be between the democracy, damaged ard shattered as it has been by the present wretched admini?traiion, and this ne Know Nothing party. These are the only really antagonistic parties in the Union, and if there is to be any contest at all it must be bu twecn thfm. From fb?s point of view, it is difficult to ex aggerate the importince of 'he Council at Phi ladelphia. More iroportar.t it, H certiinly th<n the tnni-ft of ihe community at all concoive or in ngine ; perhaps more so than most of thtj members themselves venture to think. But, at the Fame time, it in quite clear that the hulk of ts importance depend* mainly on its future ac tion for good or for evil. If it can remain united, holding itself aloof from the extreme men on either fide, and setting b<;f >re it as it* chief end the preservation of the integrity of the Union ; and if when the proper timccom^a, the purty it represent* can agree upon a suita hie man. with enough pcrsoual popularity to relieve the party from the whole rfepn risibility cf eleciing him, the chonccs an; imminent th.it it will sweep the field in Ibjfi, in opposLion to the demociacy, reorganized as it will be for n deep* rate fight. Another important point or feature in the proceedings of the Convention at Philadelphia is the obvious iinposoibility of deviling any platform that will be satisfactory to the ex. tnmes of the North aud the S <uth on the sub jeet of slavery. The sooner such o no'. ion in ttlolJj fu.d iLtn-lj aluaCv*.\iu nn jU^iurj, tlv be Ur it will ^ for the Cwvention, and the more quickly, will their bastoess be performed. Neither is it^ jn plain trath, good policy for a mere Con*// ntion con for general purpose*, hke that %% present sifting at Philadelphia to transf<*ia faelf into a Congress, and to attempt to le^ipjaVj on a vtiestion in no wise brought before thrm. We are wholly at a iocs to fee w at b^inees the Convention at Philadelphia haAto'take steps regarding the future condi tion ef the TVrritorie ? of Kansas and Nebraska, ft is quite oertain that men of large and com prAiensivt minds and national insvLncte and ' ptrpot-es would never fritter away their Kiaigth on isolated questions which are ouly tikely to be brought up at long intervals of time ic Congrets lor special and practical le gislation. Plenty of grounds remain, however, among the (public questions of the day, ou which a p irty mirj be constructed with a fair prospect of efrbiliiy and succeed, and which contain no germ ol' disorder or disunion among the associates, f uth a ground appears to be the corrnption and "folly of the two old parties. A better ground for organization still is opposition to the imbe cility, wickedness and other mischievous traits of the present administration. Both of thece contain scores of eound anl serviceable planks for a platform for the new party. Take auy man at hazard and the chances are that, unless be be be an officeholder, he is ready to join in opposing both the old parties and the present administration without reference to the politi cal consequences. In fact, it would be impossi ble to invent a more universally popular ground to staid on. North and South, right and left, men are acquainted with the trickery and folly and wickedness of the Pierce administration : each one has some particular objection to make ; one demurs to the Grey town outrage, another cannot forgive the miserable weakness display ed in the debate with Spain, a third has on his heart the renegade course pursued by the President on the Nebraska bill, a fourth haB not forgotten the glorious promises of the inaugu ral or tbeir shameful violation ; and, as all administrations are necessarily unpopular with the masses, this one, which has earned for itself surpassing contempt and hatred, has sunk to a depth of obloquy which of itBelf would insure tfte success of any party fairly arrayed against it. Twist, and writhe as they will, the demo cratic party must be driven to support this administration if the Know Nothings put pro minently forward their opposition of it ; and what sort of a fight will the " ancient demo cracy" make, with all their pluck and all tbeir numbers, when it comes to defending, flit footed, the sack of Greytown, the re opening of the slavery sore, the pro-slavery acts of a converted- free soiler, the wholesale corruption now flourishing at Washington, the shameful prostitution of the national dignity by the foreign appointments, and each and all the unspeakable follies and infamies which have marked the disgraceful administration of Franklin Pierce ? They may shirk the load, and tbere is small doubt but they will, if the Know Nothings , give them a chance by building on some other, platform than opposition to the administration. Nejll Dow on the Defence. ? Neal Dow, the ather of the Prohibitory law, and the last patron of the measure who has Imbrued his hands in human blood, has written a long apology for his conduct at Portland ; in which he endeavors to show that be ordered the peo ple of that city to be shot down in the streets in order to prevent their tearing or burning down the Cky Hall, and destroying the liquor. This defence presents many curious points. In the first place, we have nothiog but Neal Dow's opinion as to the intention of the mob. He chooses to think they intended to burn the City Halt Persons who were among them, and who have found respectable organs in the news papers of the place deny that any such inten tion was entertained for an instant. The offi cer ot militia t? whom Neal Dow first offered the post of executioner and who boldly refused to act, has positively declared that there was no symptom among the crowd of any suc't de sign as justified a resort to violence on the part of fte authorities. And in truth when we tbirk of it, every man must see that the burn ing of a City Hall is by no means an act which a crowd would be likely to commit with out some extraordinary and intolerable pr evo cation. To bring the case home to ourselves. Suppose a crowd assembled here on any occa sion of public interest ; wou'd any one expect that it would be likely to meditate injury to the | City Hall or any other monument ? Would not in plain words the worst of tbe Bo -very b'hoys be ready to fight if need were, in defence of a building inseparably connected in his mind with the grandeur and growth of his native city ? Neal Dow's assumption, to say the least of it> is not based oo anything like a probability. Again, what is the abstract moral view of tbe liquor question ? Neal Dow and his party say that liquor is a pernicious substance. ?a poison, and ho forth, which ought to be pro hibit* d. Iu the West and in parts of the coun try where the laws are administered with laxity , they stimulate women, children and fanatics to attack liquor stores, and more than once w. Lave bod to record au accouut of a similar outrage, applauded by the teetotal organs. Yet here at Portland it scorns that when the crowd wanted to destroy tho liquor belonging to the city grogshop, Neal Dow called out his soldiers and shot them down. Tlx. re Is some strange inconsistency here. Either liquor is a good thing, and in that ease the destroyers of it in tho West should be tried ai.d punished, and tho Prohibitory people stopped off : or it is a bid thing, and, if so. why did Neal Dow shoot people to prevent their destroying it? Either horn of the dilemma -eeuis fatal to tho temperance patriarch. At all cv^nt*, whatever cxcuscb Mr. Dow ir.ay make, and whatever arguments may be aiiduccd In tbe controversy, one thing is quko certain: this teetotal sjsfem, which is of doubt ful constitutionality and o clear infringement of the rights of mankind, leads directly to riot, bloodshed and disorder. A coarse of legist*- ' tiou which creates su^h hostility among au intelligent people must have lome weak points ' in its cborncter ; and these, with their conse quejices, are quite sufficient to show that all prohibitory legislation is wrong in priaciple and is not adapted to any portion of the people.

The Campaign In tit* CrlUK>?? Important Beeeewee of the Allies. The complexion of the news received by the Atlantic seems favorable to the prospects of the Allies in the Crimea. The impulse given to the energies of their governments at home by the niurnaurings of popular discontent, has already made itself manifest in some important advan tages obtained in that quarter. They have to tbank them for the principle so strenuously ad vocated by Layard ? that of putting the right men in the right place. Troops enough and money enough they could command to carry out tbeir plans ; but their blind disregard of this fundamental condition of strategical as well as administrative success, has hitherto b iffied all their calculations and discooeerted all their projects. In required a pressure from public opinion so significant as to menace the very framework ot aristocratical institutions, to con vince English administrations of their unp%tri> tic errors. Even Louis Napoleon, notwith standing the despotic restraints which he has imposed upon the French press, has seen fit to profit by the lessons of English journalism. The recent changes which have taken place in

the commands of the French army are concessions to the politely expressed, but still unequivocal censures to which it has from time to time given utterance respect ing the character of the French as well as of the English military and naval appoint ments. The results that have been accom plished since the recent changes in both com mands, demonstrate at onoe the justice of these strictures and the utility of opposing the dictates of common sense to professional preju dices and ministerial routine. Since the acts of the Aberdeen administration were first over hauled in Parliament the condition of the Eng lish troops in the Crimea has gradually amelio rated, until now we are told that they are in as satisfactory a state, as regards both physique and morale, as any army can be. Since the overcaution and personal infirmities of Canro bert and the senile imbeeility of Raglan have been substituted or neutralized by the daring and restless energy of the hero of the Dahra and the professional incapacity of Dundas re placed by the quick eye and dashing intrepidi ty of Sir Edmund Lyons, a vitality and vigor have been imparted to the operations of the Allies, which, if persevered in, may ensure the solution of that difficult problem? the capture of SebaBtopol. To judge accurately of the importance of these professional changes, as well as of the re cent successes to which they have led, it is ne cessary to enter somewhat more in detail into the latter. It appeare that between the central bastion of the fortifications of Sebasto pol and the sea the Russians had formed a large plate J' at met, where they were about to as semble considerable forces to assist them in their sorties. General Peliseier seeing at once the advantage which such a point d'tppui would give the enemy, determined to carry the place by assault, nuitu Mbw* Jiu^i j ?ivuv by the French after two nights' desperate fight ing. The loss of the Russians in this affair is estimated by the French General to be from 5,000 to 6,000 men. This dashing operation, and the success which attended it, place the military talents and energy of Pelisaier in fa vorable oontraht with those of his predecessor, and of bis English associate, Lord Raglan. It was followed up on the 25th by another equally ju dicious movement? the taking possession of the line of the Tchernaya by the French, and the establishment of a camp at Tchorgoum. It is ptuted in addition that an immediate attack is to be made upon the force under Liprandi by an allied army of 100,000 men. The results of the second expedition to Kertch, the details of which will be found in an other column, are, however, of much greater importance than any present military advan tages, inasmuch as they compromise in a great degree the fate of the campaign. The destruc tion by the Allies of the forts which protect the Sea of Azoff, and the occupation of the Straits of Yeuikale and the adjacent peninsula of Kertch, place in their possession the key to one of the principal approaches to the Russian ter ritories, and enable them to cripple to some extent their interior trade. Besides this, the occupation of the Straits will interrupt the supplies which the Russian forces in the Crimea have been hitherto drawing from the Sea of Azoff, and render the sustenance of a large army in the peninsula a matter of extreme difficulty? cut off as it would be from all sup plies by sea It is supposed that it was the ap prehension of th's expedition, and its results, that deterred the Russians from accumulating an overwhelming force in the Crimea. In connection with these successes, it is ru mored that a decided change has taken place in the disposition of tbe Russian government, and that the peace party are again in the as cendaut- the Grand Duke Constautine having resigned his office of Grand Admiral. It is scarcely necessary to say that in this instance, as well as in many others, the report is too near the flash for it to carry with it much gravity. The policy of Russia? the offspring oi so many ambitious and enterprising minis, and the deliberate result of a century of calcu lat'on?is not to be diverted from its purpose or changed in a moment, by these first calami ties of the vrai . They are counterbalanced by the mcesHCH which Russian arms have achieved up to this point of tbe campaign, and they may be neutralized by the future advantages which they mt<y win. So far from seeing in these successes of the Allies any immediate prospect ! (if Russia conceding the point* in dispute, we believe that they will only serve to confirm her still more strongly In her obstinacy. She is as jet far removed from the prostrate con . d it ion in which alone it would be consistent ' with her honor or her dignity to submit. A New Prima Donna at me Oi-eha.? The Academy t.f Music announce, after postpone ment, that on Saturday next, a new American primadoniin will make her dibut in the charac ter of Linda dt Ch.tmouuix, in the opera of that name. The la?3y, who ia named Miss Heaslcr, is, we understand, equally gifted in point of perioral attractions and mudcal talent. Sh j whs originally, and remained till some two j ears back. a siogcr in ibe choir of a Boston (l n^'li : but th? ?inn'nlar purity a<?i b',a,i'i? of hv? >v.tc fcu M mjircMiea oa several connoisseurs who heard her that it was thought decidedly worth her wbiie to complete her music*'.' t eduoation under the best advan tages Vuat monej could procure. She was ac cordingly sent to Paris, where she studied two years at the Conservatoire, aad closed her course of study by carrying off with peculiar (clat a prize awarded to the ablest' of the m my able proficients attending that school. From thence she went to Milan, where she made her dibut in Lfnda, with remarkable success ; and has now returned to try her fortune as an opera singer among her own countrymen. We hare no doubt but her reception will be worthy of the promise she has held out, aud tne exer tions she has made to fulfil it By the way, there was some time since a critic attached to one of the daily journals of this city, who having vainly endeavored to persuade the Academy of Mnsic to perform a composition of his, attacked its character, ac cused it of neglecting the object for which it bad been established, and pronounced it a "living lie." What will this gentleman do now ? He can hardly call the engagement of Mies Hensler a violation of the understanding that the Academy was to encourage music in America. Had he not better make up his mind to forget old sores, go to the Aoademy, do jus tice to Miss Hensler, and then perhaps the gen tlemen of the Academy will give his Stabat another chance 1 The Judiciary in Danger. ? One of our co temporaries, from eome cause or other, is very savage upon one of the Judges who has lately been elected by the people of this city to dis pense justice and the moral law from the bench. Our cotemporary accuses the Judge of dis. guising his " shameful acts " by the mantle of the law ? that his oonduot is worse than that of the "lowest rowdy and bruiser" in the city ? that many believe he is connected with "thieves, blacklegs, procurers and -others of like ilk" ? that he "daily disgraces the bench he ocoupies," aud that our judbiary "in numberless instances have done their ut most to shield crime and defeat the calls of jus tice." These are the charges which arespeotable co temporary makes against the Justices of thiB city. What a picture is presented if they are true! and how necessary it is that they should be thoroughly investigated, that the bench may be purged of the bad repute into which it has fallen! We have been connected with the American press during thirty- five years, and never remem ber to have seen such language used to any Judge by any newspaper before the instance in question. We have heard of editors of news papers being cited before courts for contempt, arising from the publication of reviews of pro ceeding in an article or report; but if the ex tracts above quoted, and applied to a portion of the judiciary of this city, do not constitute the highest degree of contempt there is no strength in the English language. It is the duty of the Judge alluded to to protect him sell by disproving the charges, or abandon his seat on the bench at once. THE LATEST NEWS. BY MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPHS.
