.JL?4Lil THE NEW YORK HERALD. WHOLE NO. 7216. SUNDAY MOR^lNGf. JUNE 1, 1856. PRICE TWO CENTS. HM?I1TM>1V lBEETLTG D BkMUTR. Enthiwliuiiiu AiMmbli^tt-OrHki, Ttombc and Douglas Denounced - Che Burning or Lawrence city and the Attack upon Bum. n?? Simultaneous? inaowr and Outdoor HeeMngs, ^ dec^ Pursuant to a public requuition signed by many citi MM ot Brooklyn, oalling for an expression of public op n a la regard to the recant assault upon Senator fcumner, an immense gaiberirg of the Brooklynitea took plaee at the Oity Ball in our slater elty. The lust inten tion was thai the meeting should be held In the Park fae ng ihe City Hall, but that arrangement was not a tirat earned out, P'tedbly owing to the faet that the* ?ChillicMs of the evening wou.d afLct the health or acme of the speakers were th-y <o a.dress the orowd ?? the open air. The hour flxea ter the ooumenoemeat of the proceedings was eight o'clrok P.

The Court room wo- Id probably hold fire or sia bandred: but within a short time after the organ! za loo of the meeting, it contained muoh more than that number. It was in fact uncomfortably crammed; and wallet It was almost impossible to get in, it was nearly as* difficult to get out. Ex-Mayor Lamhkrt cahed the meeting to order, and nominated his Honor Mayor Hall as Chairman, whiah Waa unanimously agreed to. The Ctiairmas said they came there, not as abolition lets, nor as democrats, nor as whigs, but they assembled there as Americans (loud appaui), to vindicate the eternal priaoiples of th? freedom of speeoa.

Winsiow, Esq , ?u then Introduced, an<l after non e preliminary remarks sal4We are here not as hot headed fanatics, but as cool, dispassionate men. who, * knowing our rights dare oaintatn them." (Applause.) We are here as firm and true disciples of Washington, the fatter of our constitution, a constitution winch bas been outraged by this attack upon Senator Sumner. Outraged, I say, because the constlca lion guarantees to every individual, and every Senator Of the Vnited States, first, liberty ot speech. Our consti tution prtTides that no Senator or Representative shall he called In qnestion for words spoken in debate in any other p'ace but in the Senate or in the Honse. What a Spectacle have we before us! An eloquent man rising np in hie seat, Inspired by the mighty truth of his theme, and for having expressed those words of truth and elo quence is struck down by a bludgeon In the hands of a inffian. (AopUuse.) And another feature of the con stitution, which requires and provides that all onr citi zens shall have guaranteed to them, at all tlmse, the iaaliecable right or free speech?that, too, has been ont ontragad. And acolher feature, which provides the flcmmoe blessing of life, liber'y and the pnrsult of hu man happ ness?that has been broken d >wn by this attaek. Gentlemen, in the days of the Roman republic the great Julius Caiiar was aaeasslnaed in the Senate House, and the Roman repub lic was In arms. Co-sr. renowned In the science of war and statesmanship; our .Senator Arom Xasoaohusetls, fir he Is ours as well as theirs?(great ?ppleuse)?jes, our t^ator, equally renowned In the arts of peace and of statesmanHbip, of scc'al cultivation and refinement anl Christian principle, be has been ?truck dowQ?for wbt.t r Kor bis zealous adherence to Ifce faith and principles of the lathera of tbe country, a lie andarstood tbtiri, and for no other crime. (Loul ap plause.) Fellow citizens, I shall be verv brief. It is la pes. ib'e to dlegu>se the great fact that this same fall prln eiple which knocked Cnarles Sumi tr dewn upon the fioo of the b>nat* house, upon theiikd day 01 May, ta thevar/ name fell apiilt which sacked the city ol Lawrence oo th ?am* Ull cay cf May. (Immense cheering.) The seal spii it tnat under look to close up tbe e oquent lips o Senator .Sumner, the same day adzed upon a free pi in tin; eflice lu Iawrenoe City and threw it Into the river. Her ? we have a movement which indicates a power behind the throne. We have beard talk of "the slave power," and It ise.Ted to some people a mere abstraction, but when ire find It breaking in the skulls of Senators, then we gee wbat it la diiving at. (Applau?e.) Wnat are we to think of the Senators or the RepieaenUUves .who pUJlate or justify the c-lmo? (Hisses ) There are men in that Senate house who claim to be men, who witnessed this outrage, and perhaps nee who will eosne before you in a short time asking for your suffrages ??(Vo.(Kn?''never?never.") And no', the least among those men was a man known as Senator Arnold liouglas. /Immense biasing?cat calls, and bo o-oh.) A> d, trentle men, the evUenoe is conclusive that he stood withli a few fleet of Sumner when taoae bludgeon blows were ?truck upon that man's head; aud be rises up lnhli seat and says the reason be did not go to the rescue of t ie Weeding m?n was, ''because his motives might bo mis ?mstrned." (Laughter.) What did he mean by tha'.f Well, just In political parlance, that hie proepeste might Ike itnieired at Cincinnati; and if the democratic party ?honld be eo mad as to nominate him? A Vokik?"We'll kill him." Mr. W?I Ihlnk iroro tbe earnest faces which I see before ree, you will take care of him at the ballot box. <8eveal voices?"That we will.") It 1* to be hoped that ?he 8' u'h will come to their senses, and in the ?*lm, dlspanaionate boir of reason will unite With 9* iic the hojx) entertained end express ?4 by Dsalei Wshatsr. ths* thin peiv'-j will herr u htnMort, go tor the Untcn bod liburty, n)v ocd forever. (I<ood applause ) Bat 1! the war ia begun? If Southern Senators and Southern reoresen'aiiVM ara letermined to meet argument wi h violence, sloqusnoe with bludgeon*, sympetcy for opproaaioa with blood ?I aay if yon stir up tba spirit of tha Northern people In that regard, jot* stir up a spirit not easily to be quenched ?a spirit cf a people who will go into the warfare with a full faith in the motto which tasolrsd Oram well la all his eoaquatls?it it well " to trust in God, anl keep our powder dry." Mr. Winslow resumed his seat aaaid entbu slastie applause. General NT* was the next speaker, and observed that ha came from a sick bed to miog e his sorrow and indig nation witb his fe 1 w citizens oafora him, at tha sad aid disgraceful occurrence which took plaoe a faw days slice in the American Senate chamber. That outrage had imprinted the badge of disgrace upon the bcow of tha Ameiioen republic The weuad inflicted upon Swmner wsa Ihtir blow (applause); the blood that tiiezlad down his manly face was 'heir bl vd (cheers), and that blow which strcck bim sense'ess to ths floor, was a blow la Dieted upon ail their liberties as American oitizsns. (More applause). Bowersr, he held that this tceurnmoe was in a manner providential. As be bad occasion to remark a few days stone la New Jersey, It required tbe hood of a Wairsn 'to stir np that spirit which vindicated their fathers and their liberties. It seems t-> me In these alsspy, drowsy times, when ear country's right' are endangered, that it tor k the blow on Sumner's bead t > roues ths peo ple to s proper sense of their ilghta and dignity. (Ap plause ) I have remarked that it seems to me that this universal sentiment is exaltly lbs thing that ths coun try needs. I come not here to speak as a polltiolaa; I should be ashamed to do It on saab an occasion as this. But, sir, this outTtge appeals to the maahood of every one of us. (App'ause.) Aid when we remember thst it is our collective aotion and operation that makes up the public sentiment of this government, it seems to me that we should feel more of personal responsibility, in via w of the exigencies of the times, than we formerly felt, and tbat Is just wbat the country requires. Most of you have seen the manly form of Cnarles Sumner; and real ly. when we believe that man was created in the image of his Maker, it really enlarges our views of the Deity itself, when we think of Humner's manly f rm His phy sical form is but indicative of his mental strength. And, sir, it was but the burning words of of t:u'h?it was touching with as irou that was heated ?n thai furnace of truih that made that universal seriig irgthere?(laughter and applause)?and for the utter ance of tbat truth, he was struoa down by as cowardly a hand as ever wielded a cane. (Kenswed applause.) But, sir, that was not alone his blow? if it was an individual blow, we would say it was tbe effervescence of a madman. (A voice?Never.) Yes, arything?cut it was not. That blow seenrs to be Justifleo by a large porttou of our country, and for that reason Several voices, excitedly?No, uo?only 160,006. (Con fusion ) Gereral Nvx? 1 speak territoeit '.y?no1, of the number. It receives justifies! ion at tha hands of presses, and Sena tors have risen on the floor of the Senate and said that they approved the aet. (Great hissing and groaning ) Now, sir, the popular doctrine is?my clerical friend be side me will pardon the allusion?in total depravity. I have sometimes, until this natter occurred, denied tha there is such a thing in the human heart as tttal depravity. I have said it was the common impulse of tbe wildcat aavage that ever roamed the forests, if he saw a man lying bleeding prostrate at his feet, to reach out his hand and give dim aid. But, sir, I believe refinement and Benatorlsi posiion make men more totally depraved?if ths exhibitions of tha conduct of some of them are to be taken as a standard?than the wildest savsge who treads the wi'derness. (Applause.) 8<r, where slumbered the humsnity of Senator ToomMl" (i soghter and hisses.) Where slept the gushing heart of Douglas? (Loud hisses.) Where was taeir manhood when blow succeeding blow upon ths senseless form of a prostrate man was unchecked by their stalwart forms and arme ? (Cries of " That is it.") That, air, givss a deeper dye to the whole transaction. (Applanss ) That, sir, is to my mind the poison upon the weapon that made tbe gashes on Sumner's head. (Heneeed cheers.) Bat they are arraigned before the tribunal of an indigo sn. people, and to-night tbe people are sitting la judgment upon that question. To night, not only here, but every where where freedom of speech is valued, they are pro nouncing rentencs upon this inhumanity. That makes countless millions mourn (Applause). Sir. 1 would that this were ell. I would, sir. that those wounds were cicatrized; but, alas! it Is noi so. There Is a tongue In every wound on great Sumner's head that will peal in thuader tones through this nation, until justice?stern and inflexible justioe? shall have been executed upon the head of the nerpetra tor of this outrage and bis coadjutors. (Enthusiastic cheering ) Sad occurrences?heart-rending events? rarely come single. Sir, while a Senator is bleeding in Washington, bone ot our bone and flesh of onr flesh are bleeding on the plains of far off Kansas; am the flames ot burning Lawrence? lurid flames?have literally pic tured bell upon the skies. It Is a part of the same eat. I rejoioe that freemen have aroused in their might now. You are to-right not playing, bat acting the part of the good Samaritan. You are pouring balsa into the wounds - ? - will i ' ~ " on Charles Sumner's head. He trill not Sgbt. His wea pons are not the weapons of steel, but they are the wea pons which are thrice whetted?weapons of reason? end they will vet tell in the oonlltot. (Vociferous plau ci's, smid which the (ienerai reared.) Rev Mr. Hatftcid next addressed th? meeting. He dp sired to eey that he was a minister of the Gospel, bat still he was a man? (applause)?and he saw no incom patibility between his duties as a Christian teacher and bis sympathising with his assembled fellow citizens. His honor and liberties, as weil as theirs, had been alike outraged by the moan, dastardly coward who had mur derously struck dewn Charles Sumner, one of the noblest men in the Union. (Applause ) The South, he be lieved. aanUd the free meu of the North to go down upon their bellies In the mire and eat dirt. ("Never, never.") He trusted, however, that God in his t i-dom would bring out of this dreadful outraga !. ult of value to all lovers of their country, and the paramount principles of liberty of opan ? xpreision _of opinion. The reverent gentleman then entered into what ha designated the en croachments of the flare power?thatis, the compromise measures?the Fugitive Slavs law, the Kansas Nebraska bill, and all that. He tbongbt that |f, after ali they had endured, this last thousandth insult was <o be passed by unheeded, tike the other insults cast upon the North, then. Indeed, they had become so debased, that it was of little come^uence how inuctt more tbsy might suffer. Ktv. H. Ward Bixcukr was next Introduced, and when tho applause with which he was receive! bad subsided, be spoke in substance as follows:?He alluded to the apology made by the previous speaker, but thought no apoL gy should be made, as noua was necep -> -y. Slavery was a book which was read by the lurid ligl., ef hell?it is. said be a book whose axioms sprang taenoe, and whose last reading will be there. (Applau<e and laugh ter.) He was opposed, with alt his heart and soul, to siavrtv, for, from his car lest age, he had loved liberty as dearer to bim tban life itself. For himself, he woald be free, living or dying, and he claimed freedom not only for himself out for all menkiad. The only way to edu ci> '? men for freelom was to give it to tbem. It might be refused to th in on the ground that they were not fit (or It, but it would b? on the same ground that you shou'd not allow a child to go into the water until he knew how to swim. There is now a gool prospect of establishing fisedom, after so muoh has b?en sacrificed to slavery. The Speaker compared it to a upas ties wolch bis eke nod everything around It. I would n t (ks continued) attempt to Interfere with sltvery where it is, and would say, there let It stand till In the natural course o! events It goes down lor ever. I would not harm South Caro.lna? the is harmed enough already, fin htvicgench a son. (Laughter and applause.) Brocks had violated every principle of humanity?there Is cot a pugilistic sneak in New dork wto would be gnllty ofsuoh dastardly ooward ice. I never would lay the hand of violenoe upon them, no. I would say keep what ynu hare got, but nothing more shall you have. The genius of slavery rules at Washington. It was not the ruler of a free nation who cccupied the 1'resldent'a chair, aod not one of the ?;ovsrnmsnts ot thirty oC our States had a word to say or liberty. It la time tint this spirit ot slavery was cast out. As to Sumner, there was not a nobler man in the Senate, and too much could not be said In hie praise. The speaker compared him to a lamb which had Deen torn to pieces?while all pitied the fate of the poor lamb, not a word was said about the wolf?there was no body to pursue or hunt it down. Slavery was the welf, atd it would be destroyed and tha coxntry rid of ibs bsntlul presence. Hon. Oharlbs Allen, who was introduced by tbe Presi dent as a olitzen of Massachusetts, said he deemed it nn necrssary, in presencs of such a tribute to Massaebusetls and its nob'e Senator as this meeting pre tented, to say a word in regard to the honor of that State. They had dote her honor, and shown their indignation ia a proper way, at ihe outrage which had been committed upon her favored son ia the Senate Chamber. He was not of the same politics' party with that cletiogalshed man, and when be was in tbe legislature he voted against bis appointment to t'ae Ssnate of .he ULited Sta es, but nothing could be said against the purity of his character or of his aots in his Sena orial capacity. He was pleased to see the people of Sew York coming up and sustaining the liberties of speech, wbleh were dear to all. Massa chasetts, whiob had already sbosn her devotion to liber ty at Bunker Hill, knew bow to delend bar rights, and wruld, if nec'SFary ia such a cause, pour on', her blood and treasures like water. The speaker concluded by thanking the meeting for the honor they had done Mas eacnusects and ter noble sen, Charles Sumn-r. Mr Brigos, of Ohio, wasca'led upon, and returned bis thanks lor the manner in which tbe citizens et this city had speken out ou the outrage whloh had betn committed upon a Senator of the Sta'e of Massachusetts. He would tell them that if necessary to preeerve the right of free speech, there were enough Buckeyes who would g) on to Washington and sustain it tn the face of all oppostti <n. Ohio had one Senator In Congress whom they noull have a bout with if they liked. (Three cheers for Wale). The speaker wished Wade wars present, as the sound of thoee sheers would be music in bis ea'fl. He then pro nounced a phil.lplc against slavery, and denounced Rev. Mr. Milts, or Indianapolis, tor supporting the system. The gentlemen, Preston Brooks, had a cane presented to him. (Cries of do gentleman.) Well, a Southern gen tleman?tbe citizens of Richmond had ua'e him a prerent of a cane, on tho top of which was a broken bead; bat ho woald teli tbe South that if they oared to lay hands upon aaothar rep resei.tative either in the Henate or tbe House, tbe Nor'h would rise iu its might and crush beneath l's heel the head of the tfemon slavery. If they dared to do tbi* again, Northern men sb uld proclaim the emancipation of the slave. (Tremendous apdaosa.) There were loud calls for ex mayor l-ambert, who made a '?* brief remarks, and concluded by stating that he had In his hand a most important despatch, whlah he read, as follows:? The Inveettgatir.* Committee of the Bouse have prepar?d ;bair report, It |1ro, a synopsis of M|u, ff&UU ecvfi? more thus tutr races ud eeasiudee with n rebolutfwf ^eapelltu* Brooks. end ceatuAuc Kelt ml Kdmotwoo. 1."hi* despatch na published 1b the Hjbau> of Friday, end ul'* Information whiob it gives i* somewhat oM to our resists ?1 reedy.

(Applause.) A- it wee now near eUveu o'c ook, the meeting, whdeh b*d dwirdled away to oar-fourth lte origin*! number*, adjourned. MBETINO OUTSIDE. There ru e lerge gathering In front of the Hell, ejtl matsd at frtm three to fire thou) and la number, nn<l considerable enthusiasm pierelled, but wore moderate in character than that mani'seted by the audience within H. N. Holt, Eeq , was called to preside. He iatro'_ duoed the speakers successively to the audience. A po. Meema^'s lantern being the only light furnished, the reporters were compelled to take their notes ia the dark. Dr. McPhao. wee introduced, and apoke at some length, hut our reporter wee unable to hear what he sail, ex cept hie peroration, In whieh he characterized Brooks a* "a loathfome toad, a skunk and n hypocrite." Rev. Hkokt Wabd Bikciikx, having been called for, came 'crward and said that he had been asked if he was prepared to make a speech. He was ready at all times to do so, end on an occasion Ilka tha present, ha was reacy at a moment's aitioe. flu heart was like a Cro ton rese r voir urn the taucet and a stream gushed out? only instead of water Usaed are. He appeared t> de nounce the entrsge which had been committed apoa the oau.e of liberty in the person of one of the noolest men that ever dignified the halls of leg Nation. But worse even than be who give that base and cowardly blow, weie those Senators who stood by and did not Interfere to prsvrnt that outrage. There was n > man in the United States whore woids were culled wl(h more rigorous refer ence Vw the rules of propriety and courtesy that were those of ceuator Sumeur; out the truth of rhs speech, which oc casioned the assault carries the veuom to their hearts, and b< in? unanswerable ia logic, they resoited to the argumtntwn bacuhnrm. The truth f the speech made tham lnluriats. We of the North have but one of two courses to pursue-either to etrugge for eonititu tioael liberty under the law, or assent to acarshy. If we want constitutional liberty we mast go to the heart of the hod/ politic, and not endeavor to drive an internal disease out by cut ward application. The nature of slavery has for a long tims been to make encroachments, aud the time has oome when it has walked into the government. It overrules the delibera tions of our cabinet, and it is time thet fre?m*o should rouse themselves, ant look to their rights Hi hoped Ibt-y would n>t lorget the pest, but would press for word until a new and a belter administration was ob ainel at Waahlncron. Mr. bn.CK.s, of Ohio, stated that he was a native of the hbrpiie State, but thai he hated Brooks as a miscreant, cowatd, assesnio, and a mean man, which he thought wss tbi lowest designation could be given to any man Hike the Five Points, and any man In it wonld be in sulted it *ou eskcd him if he would striae a man whilsthe was sitting. But a few more blows on the hseds of Northern Senators, and .he institution of slavery would be amor g tbe dark records of the past. There had bet n a fire kindled at Kansas, which, like those at Concord aud I<extr>gtan, would lead to liberty. Charles Sumner was a model American citizen, Senator and a man?and there was no fear of his death He was a temperate man, mad not pickled In mleobol, and the day might yet oome wh?n Charles Smmner might write hit) name President of the I'mtsd Stale* (Cheers.) Geo. Nye l.uclee Birdseye, Edward W. Fiefce, Wes??18. Smith, and Tnomai B. Rtumen made brief and charac teristic addresses, after which the meeting adj turned. Indignation Meeting of the Clergy In Boston. [From the B/ston Herald, Hay ?0.] A meeting cf tie (lergy of all de-iominatione was held at the Meionaon, ? est ere ay afternoon, t? take action in r?gard to the present unhappy state ot affairs in this ocuntry. The mettles was largely attended, and appear ed to he very unanimous m i*n expressions. The toee log was called to order by James Wor cester and Professor Btowe, of Acdoro'r, was electel Pre sident, and Rev. Mr. Derter of this city, Treasuxer. Ren arks of a stress an ti slavery character were made Hy tie Pra?id?n', Rer. Messrs. Oopp of Gael sea, of Fitehburg, Dexter ot Boston, Sessions of lEeircee, Wolcott of Providence, Cleveland of Lowell, Gar ner Deen of New Jersey, Stephen Thurston of Prospect, Maine, Angier of Hopklnton, N. H , Bal'ou of Meeford White mill, formerly ofStnnebam, James Worcester, Angler of C.noord, Rev. Dr. Worcester of Salem, and Mr. Branson, an egent et tho Emigrant Aid Society, end recently from Kansas. The following pieamo'e and resolutions were Intro duced:? la view of the ceaseless aggression of the slave power in our land, atd especially in view of the recent brutal attempts to extinguish free speech to the Congress of the United States, and take the lives of freemen in KaaeA*? We. Minister* ol the Gospel, to the end that we may bear oui united and eliiolent testimony before atl men, do hereby calmly, prayerfully, and as to the eight of Grd, erabocy our deep rsiigiour convictions, and our unaltera ble purposes, in the following resolutions:? Reeo.ved, That the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Chil3t Is the csly antidote for ain, and the only assure basis either of personal character or political insti-aiions?adapted alike to the fa mi y, the church and the State, en 1 pre cisely fitted to work out in thetn all the highest and noblest ends. Resolved, That we can entertain no hope that Ameri can slavery will be done awey, or its countless usurpt Mens peacefully cease, except as the result ol a wifely in creased conviction of its hetefulness In the eight of God, and its Inherent and inevitable antiginUm to the very spirit of Christ. And we do therefore 'pledge to eaeh other our mutual co operation, symoathy and ail in the work of developing through the pulpit, the church and the press, en enlighttned public sentiment on this whole subject. Resolved, That the murderous assault upon our honor ed Senator, Charles Sumner, is not only e dastardly as sault opr. a his person, end through him upon the right of free speech, but also a wound which w* individually feel, and by which our very hearts bleed; and whether he snail recover, or sink into a martyr's grave?which may God avert?we will aldress ourselves unto prayer and efiort that this sorrowful event msy become the > glorious resurrection of national vUtue, and the triumph i f freedom. Resulted, In view of the present orisls in oar national affairs, and especially the awful perils that Impend over Kama' aed the land, we see a new exbiottlon of the es sentially corrupt and corrupting spirit of slavery, acd a new necessity tba' we, as miniates of the gospel and lot era cf liberty, should gird ourselves afresh to op pose its sggresiions ?nd secure the final triumph of freedom.

Arkenburg, Karl; and others, vs. The Mo'jor, Comptroller, &c , of Nexo Yorlc.?Ur. Field, on the part of the p'alntiffs, proceeded to sum op. This was a suit brought by citizens and tax payers of New Yoik egalnst the corporation and other pertles who claim to have pur cbesed the Brick church property, and to restrain the Mayor and Conrp'roller from affixing the seal ot the city to a release of the conditions of the grant mads to the trustees of the Brick chnrch of 1768. Mr. Field argued in fkvor ot the perpetuation ct the injunction, and con tended that if the property was worth 9400,000 at the present time, there could be tound plenty of men In the el'y who would willingly elve $200,000 for the right to dictate to the trustees of the Brlok ohurch the terms of sale, with e certaiaty of making fifty per cent on their investment within two years. The chnroh proposes to give the city oue f >urth rf the $270,000, instead of $200, fCO, wh'ch the public treasury would receive, if the opin ion of Mr. Recorder Tlilou bad been adhered to. After reterrtcg to the law and the fac s of the case, Mr. Field itJd it wee one In which the Court should interfere, and that the contliuanc* of the Injunction should he granted natii a r 1*1 or it ion of the whole case should he made upon tlewJi'*. If the Court would put the property up, It wiuli fiol what it was really worth, or iflt were put up in lots, it would brtiga larger ?um than any that had been named yet. Decision reserved. The Cold.

Resolved, That in accordance with the true spirit and meentig of that declaration, we utterly repudiate and denounce tbe repeal of the Missouri compromise, we utterly repudiate and denounce the policy as Initiated by the present adminlsnation in its Kansas-Nebraska mea sure, the object and purpose of which wis to extend slavery into there rerritoiles and ultimatsly to force them in'o tbe Union as Slavs States; that ws utterly repudiate and denounce the outrages perpe'.rated lu Ktnrax, tbe legitimate result cf uoat measure; that we utterly execrate and abhor the outrages perpetrated in Washington, the natural sequence of giving sway to the violent and reckless eptiit of slavery prop* gandlrm.. Resolved, That the two great sentiments pervading the American mind of tbe B.ele if New Yorka are?f irst. The American and .Protestant sentiment, secondly, Op position to the extension of human slavery And that these two F.euthnxnts. as embodied in tbe Mag ham to a platform, were outraged by the pretended Philadelphia comix ation. That the no miner * did not represent the American and Protectant sentiment, while they did re present the pro-slavery sentiment of the South?the one by bis antecedents, his past affiliations, and present as sociations, by the manner of his nomination and the In fluences which produce it, and the other by his public declaration ruaae in the Convention that nominated htm; and because they thus represent principles and measures antsgcnistical to those held ani advcoatel by the Ameri can party, we repudiate and reject them. Resolved, That while we disclaim ell intention of la otrnctirg cur delegates in regard to individual* whoae xames may be presented for nomination in the National Convention to be held on the 12th of June next, ws earnestly recommend that they use their best ex ertions to preeen;, as candidates for the support of the Acreiioan people, men who embody these two great conservative elements, in whose support all honeit and earnest Americans, aud all honest and earnest oppo- ' cents of tbe extension of human slavery, may, without a eaciifice of principle, or their own self-respect, units. On motion the delegates to New Yoris Convention were empowered to flil vacancies. Mr. moved that the delegates to the New York 12th of June Convention from th's Slat* meet in that city cn the ilth of June, and proceed to take measure* fcr the establishment of a Grand Council, favorable to tbe principles declared in the Bmghamton platform. Mr. Watker objected, saying that lio did not think this Convention should title a step so radical?that it was not prepared to adopt any measure so revolutionary ia its character. Tho time had not come for such a sever ance from the Amei ican party, and it would be extreme ly unwise for this Convention to meddle with a subject se important. Another delegate coincided with the views expressed by Mr. Walker. He, too, thought this Convention *hauld paut-e. It thould, in fact, nave nothing tc do with such a proposition. He had been told that there wwra but twe Councils in the Slate which bad not endoreed the Philadelphia nominations?indeed, be had heard since that ore ot these had ratified these nominations. He could not say how true this was, hut he was for waiting until Mr. killmore returned to the country and waa in terrogated upon certain points baforo he could accede to amy such notion. He intimated, too, taat there waa a chance c-1 th*lr being expelled from the Order.JHe wanted to remain in it as long as he could. More could be aa coBplished that way than ln>ny other. The mover of tbe resolution had peraUsicn to with draw It. On motion of F. H. Haggles, a rasolntlon was adopted, endorsing the course of th* RtgUUr, whereupon Mr. Hammond expressed his thanks, and allowed that it was the Brst particle of consolation he had experience! nine* be had passed into the "valley of the shadow ot death." On motion of Mr. H., tbe following State Central Com mittee was appoisted :? S. Seymour, S. M. Stilwell, 8. H. Hammond, Ambroaa Steven*, F. Vv. Palmer, F. W. Walker, P. A. Wright, and J. B. Bailey. Thanks were then voted the President, and on motion ot Silas Seymour, the Convention adjourned jine die. Coroner's Inquests.
