It Is scarcely neaessarr to Int ont the many misstatements contained In toe atove i tract; yet, in order that we may piece the faotj ouce ore upon the record, we will undertake the task. The sertion that Pennsylvania bas nontaeted M*. Dallas is odered sufficiently ridiculous by the fact? ?hi?h is a ?t? that the State Convention, which meets on the 4th March next, will be unanimously in favor of Mr ichanan. Ihe staement of ths Delta is peraaps rte ?M from the fact that a bar room meeting cotnpised Know ho thing* and diioontad politicians, held in an otf the way street in the city of PalladeiphU. oa^wl oe resolutions tn favor of Mr Dallas, 'nu tneeilnir d about as much authority to speak fir the pe >ple If CVnaylvanla, as if It had been held in davaaa or South nca, and about as truly represented their Hen-i U as two or three individuals in New Orleans ex essing themselves in favor of Mr. Garrison, waald present the sentiments ana the preferences of the de icratic pai to of Louisiana. When the Delta dejiares thit Mr. Slcklw has said, aa ?y authority, thlt Mr. Buchautn would "'retire " it iert? what U not true.

Of Mr. Dallas's positive weak, is, the Delta must be as well assured as of M*. Bu ' man's strength, and we wll not so far attiok its sv :lty as to suppose It sincerely desirous of hl? nomina ?. Even in the absence of Mr. Buchanan. *here li no urance that Pennsylvania would cant her vote for Mr. lias, and tbe course ot the De/.'a is each as t > deprive a of any chance of obtaining It iu su ih a contingency, 'a gentlemen who control and conduct the Delta are y astute politicians.

Either gentleman has a right to be me a camddate, and has a jus', claim to uavs als pie slons fully and fairly considered oy the party and the ivention.

When such a course Is -sued, we consider It our duty t > te*r a *ay the mask, 1 expose tbe wbo>e system of operations to tae gaze of democ-atlc public, it is but light that every o*n ate should kn?.w whither be can look f >r supp >rt ?n vhimhe can lely as his friends, and whom he ai*y 'e to encounter as competitors. If the pr vate and sonal ?nc poll -foal friends of Mi Davis act with iut authority in the warfare they arc now waging upon admiLiitration through 'he col nnns of the NevOr. ns Data, it is but just that tbe pobli a, in who-e mind y are Ineeparably connected, should be apprised of fact. In sny other eveet the pmd'ton of Mr, Davis, a merol-er of an admmls 'radon daily assaulted by his jnds, is certainly very utseuvi ible.

[From the Klcomond vVhtg.J MK. I)IC*IN80N, OP NKW YUItK. A coteinporarj, we leiieve the Lynsaourg Virr/titiait, referred some days since to the tact that at tue lint Bal timore Convention in 1862, Mr. Dickinson, of New York, received the unanimous support of the Virginia delega tion and w oulil huve obtained the nomination bat tor bid noble disinterestedness, wuich scarcely ban its equal in Gi eciau or Kcinau storr.

Of wbat crime has ne besn guilty 1 What pledge has he violated? *hat point of honor has be disregarded? what principle of patty hag he y folate! ? We kno w of n one ? we have lieaid of noue.

We refer to the uHage he has reseired as furni-hing another g aring lllusti atioa of the Daaet'ul as or^uamvvj wf ? rfevtiuun njmtt. I nun IOlir J&ATH since be was the caict or ten thousand? all we -e eager to bestow on him tbe highest office in the land, and which be on y failed to receive thong i his own magnanimous dlsiiitereHttdcess; but now, for no ot'ier crime than the lows of the favor of tbe di-penser of tbe spoils, he is re pudiated from one end ?f the country to the other by every genuine democratic politician. Is is possible for party abjectiess to go further? [From the Charleston Mercury, Ultra Fire Eater.] TBE BOIXTH AT CINCINNATI. It is itdeed astonishing it to wbat glaring contridia tlcns and absurdities party zeal will hurry men. From the b? gibuing it baa Men urged that natioual convsu tif.ns lairiv represent the wishes of the party, or rather cf the majotity of tbe party. And yet this argument upon whuh rests the entire claim of tbe caucus system tii any support, without which it is confessedly irrusp >u sib.e and unreliable, has not the least shadow of founda tion iu theory or practice. Oue need only re meaner the nomination* whicu have been made by national en vet, 'ions ? bxh the whig and democratic? v> s*e at oiioe tbe n ter fa'sity of such an argument. With scarcely a single exception, tbey have rejected the illus ttious men of tne nation. and lighted upo a the obscure an C simply availaole. This policy. so constantly observ ed, has now become a fixed principle of tbe convention system; <>.n< a late wrl er in au English 'review well ob serves, tha?, ruder its operation, tne 9rst office iu the gove'nment can tevi-r be filled by tbe first me a.

A convention, f-amed wl ho it tegard to the relative sureng h of tbe party in the differ ent secJoos of tne Union, cannot, ot cmroe, properly represent the party. Based upon no just pinsiple of iepterenuiUon. how can It justly reflect public opinion? J .dged by this simple and uuanswwab e test, the na tional ooi vention s>* em is an enormous u-u'patlon, and wiodk upon the rignts ot the people. Protesting to re pierei.t it lp fact suppresses and misrepresents the po pular voice, fbe b^sis of representation i t Its delibera tions is artltra y and fixed? ea"h SU'e having a v t e equslto tbe number oflls votes up ^n joint ballot iu C>n gtees, tpgsrolees ot tbe strength ot the party ia their several limits.

Massachusetts 1 1? very heart, of whiggery and free soil, will have 13; while t.e rgia fresh in her demoiratic victories, will have but 10 And Ohio, whose devotion to abolition h?? beeu so recently sealed by tbe election of Got Chass, wil cas' 23 votes; while 'o uth Carolina, tbe State wb.ise faithful ness to tbe princlplee of the democratic party has been again and again proven, whsn the demo i ratio party lt eeit was false to them mil if she Is dragged Into t lis cent en ion have but eight votes. Can exposure bs more C' mplete cf the shallowness of the claim set up far t his convention, fairly and trutpful'v to represent .ne will or the party? The same results follow at each step of the investigation. Bnt the most remarkable assumption of all in be hal* of ti>e Cincinnati Convention is, that inasmuch ss the North is overwhelmingly anti-democratic, and the South democratic, that it will ia fact be a en<ventlon of the 8oath, and, therefore, tbat Sot/ th Carolina should go warmly and hoartlly into It. .Sow, If this were so, if this convention of the democratic party hso tny claim to be regarded a Southern onven f|7 n.

Again ? In George Law ths American parry will present a cnuiid .u vrhis>e career in li^e exemplifies the true de mocracy, the g<-nuiue republicanism of .tu-i country. We use thtse terms in their normtl sense.

Agulu ? In George Law the American party will present a candidate who.e sympathte<?re with the mmas of tn'ia country, who is linted to them by his interests, by his own history, by t^e memory of bis early struggles and his later achievements in the gre*t battle of life; wu > 1. ol them by birth, by educa'iou and habi s of thought an 1 of action; who is eminently a man of the people, mads gucU by bis past tabors and the very necessities of his po sition.

Such a msn in our judirui nt is George Law. His put history, the whole tenor ol tils dfe, proves hun t j be such. Bach are some of the reasons upon whish w? base our preference for Georga Law as tl" Ams iian candidate for the l'resiilencv. Ins e are others equady potent, to which we shall allude hereafter. We i<u'omit tnjse now to the careful consideration of tbe Amerioan party if the htate and Union. We suomit tnem t j th ? consideration oftbe delegates elected.
