THE PRESIDENTIAL QUESTION. Uovrrnor WIm, ot Virginia, Som for Jaw. ?wluiiin?Major Andrew J. Doaelun gnrrfnlll Accept* the Philadelphia Ainf I Iran Nomina tlon. GOV. WISE'3 litter. The following letter from the Hon H. A. Wise, determining the preferences and action of Virginia at the approaching National Democratic Convention, to be held at Cincinnati, addressed to the Corres ponding Secretary of the " General Buchanan Com mittee of the State of New York," has been handed to us by its Chairman and Recording Secretary, James Campbell, Esq., and C. D. Brown, Esq., M. D.:? Richkokd, March 5, 1856. Diub Pir?I received yours of the '23d ult. to day, and have no hesitation in giving a frank reply to the re solution of inquiry of which you are the medium. Am to the prt.entatien ot my oau name tor nomination or the Residency, I can only say that I have had no part n it, end will have none, further than to say that I will not withhold its use from mv Meads, If they think that " ' ' -'- - serve " it can be (airly made to serve the cause of the country aad of the democracy. I was, at the last Convention, tke avowed friend of Mr. Buchanan's nomination, and would have so declared now, bad I not expressly understood that ne would not he n candidate for the i'reaidtney. I seen not to say that I am not now friendly to his no oination, but that I am not committed to him or to any man. My siain desire is that the cemocracy shall be united oa the best man with the best chances of sucoeas. 1 especially desire that the Virginia democracy shall not be distracted, and I am committed only to their pre ference, whatever it be, within the range ot legitimate selection. I will go wi'.h the Virginia regiment into the featte. and remain with it through the tight until death cr victory. Psnnsy.vaaia has always stood by Virginia, from the days ci ? mon $nyder ana Thos. Jefferson down to this day; she is one of the larsest and oldeet and bMt of the old thirteen ^taies, and she has claims to give a can didate, and she has a son worthy of a nomination, who la a representative, man and name, of his State's de mocracy; end if Virginia again prefers him, as she did hi MM, 1 will go tor his nomination m'ght and main. Virginia offers no candidate, an l will not licely vote for an; son of her own unless her sister Kates snail call ?pon her to present her preference to the Convenlion. If she presents no son of her own in the drat insunos, my belief is that on ths first ba.lutings in coaventioo her vote will be cast for Mr. Buchanan wi.h an earnest, ksxest desire to have him n nuneted If his name fails, then Virgii ta wi'l expect Pennsylvania to g) a ong with her tor tier prelereme. And I say this without rejecting ether States or candidates, for whoever is nomiaaed ey the Contention at Clnclnna i. ?n a s.und dsmocra'ie platfo m, will be supp ried by Virginia, and she desires to eic ude no candidate (rem having bis name prop >sed. She ai 1 heartily go for Mr. i'ieroe, Mr. Douglas, or any Other sound man of the North, anc sets up equal preten sions only for a son of her swn or the S mth She would, deub'less, looting to men alone, prefer one ot her ova eons?tor, examp.e. Mr. Hunter, of the Sena e, or eoine ether, but the proposal ot the uame of one of her sjus ehe wcu d defer to her sister S ates, and to none more especially *han 10 Pennsylvania. For nyseif I prefer that Mr Bachanan's name shall be presented to the National Convention?indeed, that toe field of seiecJon shall be as large as p issible -that the aleimB of every gxid and great man who has a hrld upon the masses of the pe pie without regard to sec don. or thought of and tairiy considered, in reference to the po pular will, and not to the selfish interests of mere politi cians. and then every S ate regiment wi 1 be marched up to t e grind dem cratic encampment, with high hopes of being tne banner corps and of glad y and gloriously 1 sail ing on to as signal moral as well as political victory. I pieoge you that the "0 d Guard" of Virginia will tread "with 'he tramp of the serried host," regularly in the hue sgainst the tee, and do or die in any part of the field of contUct where duty and order m?v ommiil. I am, ?ir, yours Uuly, HENHY A. WlrfE. MR. DONBLSON'S ACCBPTANCB. The following correspondence appears in the Rich mond Whig. It explains itself;? Philadelphia, Feb. 86, 1856. to Ho.<4. A-tiiRKW Jackson Ponelso* Sut? rbe National Convention in this city having una almouaJy chosen you u their candidate tor the Vioe Pre mdsncv ot the United ,-tates in the approaching election, have appointed the undersigned a committee to make known to jou, officially, thla proceeding, and to aek yonr acceptance of the poettion they hare unsigned to yon.

BARfLETr, of Kentucky. WM. J. EAMitS, of Mass. Kl'HRAlM MARSH, of New Jersey. TVutGrovk, near Naahville, March 30, 1866. Gektijimkji?1 rid not receive until yeeterday yonr of telal no'e of the 26 ih of Feoruary last, informing me of I By nomination to the office of 1 ice President Dy the Ame ican party, and askicg my acceptance ot the same. For the flatteiinw terms in which you liave communi cated this proceeding. 1 beg leavs to offer you my sincere thanks. I accept the position assigned me by the Ameri aan party with a just tease. I trust of the responsioiiity belonging to it. i attended the Convention with no ex pectation that eneh an honor awaited me; aDd it my own feelings and wishes could have been oonsnited. it would have tallen upon some other member of the American Cty, in whose ranks are so many distinguished lndiri da, bet-er known to the country and belt ir prepared by experienee for the high duties of tbe station, should the voiee of the peop<e be in accord with that of which you are the organ on this occasion. But acting upon the maxim Wi iu by the great men of the early nays of oar repub lic, that public offiee should be neither sought nor de alined, I yield to tbe judgment of those who have thought that my name might of service in advancing the im portant objects which oons'itute the American party. Our lestdlng idea la that the two old parties, democratic and whig, have ceased to exert their tormer heal .hful in flnenoe in the management cf the public interest, and that, without the intervention of reforms which ihsycau never effect, the beloved oonstituti n and Union, be queathed to as by our forefathers, will not long be pre served. For the most of the evils with whioh we are threatened at the present period the administration of President Pierce is evidently responsible; bat ln*t.-ad of finding bis party engaged in the prrsecation of measures to avi the caoger he has brought upon the land, we see it m "? active **??" ever in scatiariig the seeds ef sectional atri's and social anar chy. When General Jackson came into the Pre?ideney be acknowledged in his inaugural address the obligation of the Executive to restrain tbe pationage of the fede al government, so that it thould not be brought into con feet with the frsedom of elections. But modern demo oraey stands in direct antagonism to this obligation. There is scarcely an election precinct io the United States wtich bas not witnessed the most shameful intertereuie with eleetione by the agents of the federal governai-it aetir g in the name of democracy. In former time*, when parties were created by pntri . is and national sentiments, upon measures of g-neral i tercet to tbe whole country, we never beard tn*t a mea sure could be teciated democratic in sue piece and not demoeratie in mother, by leasing men protesting to ,?? loag o this pariy. Yet we see this enormity exhibited daiiy by the party press in the pay ot the present Execu tive. The neeessery result ot such not successfully opposed, must be to destroy all political mo rality, and to continue power in unfaithful and inccmpe tent hauls by the mere influence of the mooey der.vel from the taxss which are paid by tbe people for far eifferen - purposes. It is undeniable that the antago nism now prevailn g between the North and the .South is mainly attributable to the political artifice which has enabled men holding dtrsetly opposite opinions on the power ot Cotgress over tbe Institution of slavery in tbe Territories, but yet professing to belong to the same democratic party. The Nebraska-Kansas ac'. is oonstantiy caI ed by one per tin of the demo crats a law which will prevent tbe extension of slavery to tbe Territories, and by another portion a u?w ?which win enable the South to carry slavery to the Ter ritories By tbe same fallacy, secession, nnlllfiia ion, abolition, and all other ism* have found a shelter un'.er the flag of democracy, explained as it is by modern inter preters. In frrmeT limes, also, our best patriots, without (lis tinction of party, spoke tf the necessity of guarding the ballot b">x from the dangers of foreign influence, and of keeping separate ihe Church and State; and of the advan tage U> be derived from a frequent recarrence to the ear iter advice of our father*, wbion inculcated a reverence for tbe compacts of the constitution, and tbe abstinence from whatever tended to form geographical parties er ar ray one section of tbe Union |g*inat another Now, however, the who's power of the federal government is brought tc bear against any Individual who has tbe mde pendenoe to declare bis attachment to those old tasilnn ed sentiments. Whole classes nf o?n stand proscribed ami ostracised for no other offense than that o' joining j an asseciation which seeks only to correct the ex jesses of party spirit, and to restore the government to tbe purl* It possessed when we received it irom tne hands of .boo rages who founded and reformed it. Looking, geDtlemen, npon the American party as 4* i i ned to eradicate 'he evils to which 1 have thus briefly d verted,' am proud to be called one of its ms?bers. an 1 an only regret 'hat. n selecting It* llag bearers, ths nice or tbe Vice President had noi fallen u poo one who could bnrg to the cause higher guarantee* for if* uceess than can oe drawn lrora the humble services t haw* heretofore rendered my country Thanking you again' or the kind manner! n which yon , e expressed^ our personal gratification at ihe nomi on. subscribe myself very respectfully, yonr osedi #rvant A. J. DONELSON. Third Avrnse Hull rood. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. The article in your paper of Wednesday states that this company have attempted to smuggle through the Brerd of Aldermen a project to charge the inhabitants of the npper part of Yorkvllle and llarlera ten cents fire. Tbe petition of the Third Avenne Railroad Gom puny was heard before the Committee of the Board of Aldermen last tall at three different public meetings. Ths inhabitants of Yerhville at the time it was before the Board of Al dermen held a public meeting and appointed a oommitfoe to wmfer with the I'resident of the road and that com rultte-> cal'ed an adjoarnod meeting at 5 orkville, on the !?7ih of February, where they recommended the passage of the resolution now before ihe Board of Aldermen. The inhabitants of Harlem held a pub ic meeting on 'he 12th of January, and himflar resoin'ion* were ad <pted. It is tm'dr+lj untruf> thut thf* icti n of the rttlroid if unknown, or that any underhanded attempt ha* been made to obtain ghi-- reeoiutlcn te the Beard of Aldermen TRUTH. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MOUSY HAKK1T. Friday, April 18?6 P. M. The market was .lightly duller to-day, with mereaaed demand for money. A. usual, everybody expecting an inflation on the strength of the peace newn, stock, have rather gone the other way. To the trade of the city and the country at 'arge the symptom i* a healthy one, a. It indicate* that the merchant, are uiing in their busi ne.s the funds which have lately be*n employed in buoying up stock., Solid dividend paying sec critic, like Panama. Michigan Southern, Galena and Chicago, and Reading, have ggpwn slightly dearer sinoe the newt; but all the bubble, of the day are lower from an eighth to a half per cent. No variation has taken place in the bond list. Chicago and Rock Island has boon feverish since the corner calumniated; but it maintained itself to-day at about the same price it commanded yesterday morning. At the second board the market was buoyant. Panama advanced X per cent; Michigan Southern 1. In other stock, there was no change worth rejiorting. The impression is i ally becoming stronger and stronger that we are upon the eve of a very active speculation in the stock market. There is in the good wand stocks a margin tor an im provement. and there i. no donbt bnt that margin will be gradually covered. A steady appreciation of a pcrma' ent eight and ten per cent dividend paying railroad stocks, must take place. The money market and the public mind are in favor of such a movement, and it can" not be reflated. The George law announce, that the river boats on the San Juan were laid up at Punta Arenas, the agent Scott being left without money or provisions. He intended to discharge the men under his command and lay up the boats. The advices from the West in regard tj the business on the railroads are very^eneouragiog. The Toledo Cbm mercial states that on Thursday, the 10th Inst., 1,700 passengers, in twelve passenger cars, wera carried West on the Southern] Miehigan road. The fares amounted in the aggregate to $10,660. The remipta of the Cleve land and Toledo road for the first two wseks of April were $62,000, equal to about $136 000 for the month, which is $15,000 beyond the estimate. The same two weeks year, gave $52,000. The first week on the Michigan Southern road was $66,000?the largest re eipt ever taken. Of this $44 030 was for passengers, and $21,000 for freight. The train on the Wisconsin Lake Shore road on Thursday last wsn' into Mllwaukie with nine full passepger cars. The lam ing. tor April are estimated by the Superintendent at $25,000, which, for forty-five miles of road, is Urge. The Mllwaukie and Mississippi and Milwaukie and I/i Crosse roads are doing a very large business. The latter is now cpen to Beaver Dam, 61 miles from Mil vaukie, and already twen y locomotives and three hundred freight ear. have been provided for doing the business offering itself.

KS3 We have received ths report of the Minnesota Mining Con pany, from which we note that another dividend of $10 per share has been declared. This mine has divided $380,000 among its stockholders during the last four years. In connection with this the revival of ths Mining Board, and the spirited business thereat deserves notice. Few new companies have been introduced as yet; but several old acquaintances? among which the Gardiner Gold appears to have held Its own as well as any?are daily dealt In. The Fort Wayne and Mississippi Railroad have pub lished a report, in which they say that on all the an' J scriptions a sum of only $50 22 has been collected. They have eemmeneed work, however, by the construction of a few yards of gradisg near Fort Wayne. A new railroad, to be called the North, East and South west Alabama Railroad, la about to be teken in hand by a company in that State. It is to run from Chattanoga, Tennessee, to Marion, Mississippi.

Indeed, a smart decline has been submitted to, and should goods continue to arrive for some time longer, at the rates at,which they have b?en imported for the past few weeks, we may expect a break down In prices. The jobbers buy sparingly and cautiously, yet this will not pre vent our importations be ing forced off at anction. When importers slacken up foreign manufacturers may ship direct to factors here with orders to sell? if not in the usual way?by auction. But such a state of trade, from its irrsgnlar and unheal thy nature, soon works its wn cure. Wnen goods com* to be sacrificed, those whojsupply them and stand the losses will soon be forced to change their course or lose their capital. Dry goods, like other branches of trade, are subject to fluctuations and cbonges. We Hod that a few years lias suffixed to change I'm location in this city from the east to the west side o the town?there having been a sort of general migra tlon I rum Pear) street to Broadway and the cross streets leading from It to the North river. The wholesale bnsioess Is every year lncreasieg at the principal Western towns, mch as Cincinnati, St. Louie and Chicago, all of whicb did a linger wholesale busiceia last year then usual and the time may arrive when they may form the prtnnj>al points of distribution. The Southern cities are glso increasing in the wnclesale or distributing trade. Nevertheless, New York mo?t main, tain her pre-eminenee as the chief Importing emporium, and instead of sending forward goods from broken cases and packages, she will send them on in their original fotm, on an itcrf aeel scale, to other points of distriou tion. Collect lots OOnUntie good, and the failures limited. Tha chief meneta^ difficulties are experienced in sec Hons o' oountiy at the West, where the heavy decline in breadstuff* and provisions bti boon Boat foil. At ths South and South w*st money i* repre sen tod to be abon dant, chiefly owing to the great rise m cotton; and con sequently, wo bear of few failure* m that direction. The export* of cotton cloth* from thi* port from ihs 1st of January to the 8th of April, 1866, have amounted to 10,026 packages, against 6,600 tor th* same period in 1866; and from Boston th* ?nf>3rt this year ha* reached 9,723 packages, against 3,028 in 1866. In domestic goods we have to n< tie* that brown sheet ings and shirting* have been steady; heavy sheetings were firm at 7V?- ? 8a., and light standard goods steady at 6%e. a 7c. The demand was moderate for all kinds. Drills were in fhir demand for export, at 7V?. a 8c.; bleached sold at 8j?o., and blues at 9)je. Corset jeans were unoharged. Oinabuig* were in increased supply, especially of common grades, with a steady home trade. Denim* were in fair demand, without change of moment in quotations. Stripes and ticks were mnoh less aetive, w. th a better stock; while prices were tolerably well sup. ported. Cotton duck continued in good demand, without charge in prices. So far there has been no corresponding changs la the value of manufactured cotton goods with the enhancement in the valne of ra w cotton. As respects foreign gxxls, although the importer* and ehbers bare done a fair business, greater than that o1 the same period last year, but not what they expected, yet the heavy importations recently made hare had a depressing influenee on the market, and prices are gene rally lower, exeept In new and desirable style* of goods, which are in demand for the city and oonntry retail trade and have become mere or iess scarce. French dress, and tancy silks, and fib bona, 4c , are said also to favor purchasers. Stock Birhmge. fUUT.
