Miller, Thomas Karll, This call Is made by democrats' who bolted from the soft resolutions of the eighth of January, endorsing the administration in its policy ot making Kansas a slave State, and from the proceedings of the National Democratic ' Convention at Cincinnati. The present Convention, then, was composed of democrats, some of whom were original Cass men. and who, previous to being merged with the republicans, desired to make good terms for themselves. Some of those who have been leading men among the de mocrat* in times past occupied seats on the benchea. Such men as 1). I). Field and John A. Kennedy, of New York; John S. Floyd, ofSuflolk; James 8. Wads worth, of Genesee: H. Hurlburt, of Herkimer; F. P. Stevens, o! Erie; T. B. Carrol, of Rensselaer; Timothy Jenkins, of Oneida: Nathaniel Jones, or Orange, and Wm. Lewis, Ule ? member ol the Soft State Convention, were among the .number. The Convention was made up of some ol tbo strongest men in the State. The Convention assembled In Market Hall at noon about 200 delegates present, when Mr. PutTT Pottkr, of Schenectady, read the call, an ' said Under this call, and by rirtue of tbo authority delegated to me at an Informal meeting of the commute > this mermng, I now call this Convention to order, and nominate a* your temporary chairman Benjamia Welch, Jr., of Erie. The nomination having been ratifled by the Convention, Mr. Welch took the chair amid load applause. He said :? Gotlkxxn or thk Cosvxntion ? I make my acknow ledgments for the honor you have done ae, and beg to know your farther pleasure. Mr. Van Pack, of Albany, nominated E. W. Eaton, of Herkimer, as Secretary pro tern, and Mr. Gallagher named Joseph Carr, or Rensselaer. Both nominations were rati fled by the Convention. Mr. Pottoh moved that the delegates from each county band In their names to the Secretaries. Carried. Mr. JitMn C. Smith moved that a committee of two 'rem each Judicial district be appointed to namo perms sent officers for the Convention. Carried, and the chair appointed the committee as follows:? 1st district? John A Kennedy and W. W. Northup. 2? John 0. Hoyd and Kolit. Itouiston. 3? I-yinan Wilder and Henry P I'ulver. 4 ? Clark B Cochrane and I). M. Chapiu. 6? Ward Hall and I'etcr Outwator. 6? W. M.

There wm a little Irregular debate on the precedency of motion, during which Mr. Pottkr said that every man present was a democrat, which sentiment was received with loud applause. On niotioo of Mr. D. D. Finn, the Chair appointed the following committee of two from each Judicial district to prepare an address and reailutions for the oonaideration oftthe Convention ? 1st district? 1 D Field and I.ucins Robinson. 2 ? lohn (.

(Cheers.) Those men were democrats because fliey be lieved in democracy, not because it was the name of a platform laid down for thorn or laid down over them. (Loud cheers.) They looked lor and gathered wisdom I rom the honest and live instincts of the popular niad ; they gathered strength from the popular will; they did not look to Washington for instructions or to Cincin nati for principles. (Laughter and applause.) If we follow In their footsteps, 1 have no fc*rs that we shall ever have occasion to regret the course we have taken. I had the honor to bo a member of a convention which afcembled in this city prior to the Presidential election of 1(48. That convention laid then aud here one of the corner stones of tho democracy of New York ? u stone of Jeffers?*n granite ? opposition to the extension of slave ry. (Cheers.) l fee Moat melt he faces of many men who were, with me, delegates to the National Convention which niet at Baltimore in that year, and I claim that as representatives of the democracy of New York we proved ourselves tan to the great trust reposed in us. When we came out of that conveutiou ? when the principles of our constitution were tram pled in the dust ? we came here and we sub mitted our action to the democracy of New York, and were sustained by a vote of 120,000. We staud now where we stood then. (Cneers.) We stand upon the same principles we stood upon then. (Applause.) A few men here and there may have been seduced from our ranks by allurements of ottice, of the Hatterta of power; but I tirmly believe the people are now where they were then, (applause); and, if I may be allowed the expres sion, only more so ? (renewed applause); and I am impa tient for the day to come when they will record their ver dict on the Issues before us. I will not, gentlemen, detain you further from the important business before you, ex cept to ask your f riendly aid, and, If need be, your indul gence in discharging the duties which you have Imposed upon me.

Taw gentleman was Mr. Samuel Griswold. Mr. limiK moved thst the documents be printed gen erally, lor the use of the convention. Mr. Sai l, a German editor, moved that 10,000 be print ed in German. (laughter and applause. ) Mr. Fieiu laid that the democratic pairty had resolved Itself into a society lor the spread of slavery all over the earth. He did not think it worth while to follow tiielr example. A liKUitUT* said that the printing would coat a great deal of money. Mr. Kaklk. of Rensselaer ? Never wind. I will give $600 to begin wtth? (Applause) ? and the same every year for ten years. (Applause, aud cries of "Good. > Mr. Bookuoum, of Columbia, said he genera ly reserved what he bad to say for home consumption, but he might gay that, though the name of Van Buren was still dear to Columbia, that county was still sonnd to the core. There was a new spirit abroad; it would result in a new or ganization ? the organization ol" truth aud justice. Una dient to that organization, the men of Columbia would range themselves on the i ule ol free soil, Iree apcech and Fremont. Columbia would give live huudred majority for Fremont. (Cheers.) . ... Mr. Yak Dvck alluded to the Sort Convention or the 10th Jauuary. at wlilch he was a delegate, and retused to accede to the prepositions and resolution there pre gented. He had few sympathizer* then, but a great many now. He was proud of the association In which he found himself today. The men who mot here in January overlooked principles to secure ulterior object*, and gained nothing by it. They were recognized as national democrats, of live months stand ing. (laughter.) They were thus admitted iuto the na tional party at Cincinnati : -hut medical authorities tell us that a live months' child can rever live. (Cheers and laughter.) They were told If they had presented them selves at Cincinnati, with the resolution* adopted nine mouths belore the lull period of the gestation, they would have been surely rejected. (Renewed laughter and ap plause.) Mr. Van Dyck was glad to see many men here whom he knew In 1848, when he was talking tree soil, through the Albany Atlas, before It bad a dead body bound to it. (Applause.) While he was happy to con gratulate them that they were once more Iree to fay, to do, to act, and, if necessary, to Buffer, he was free to confess that there were some voices that, go far as this side ot the question was concerned, were silent? Dot only silent, but perverted. He had road or one who buried his talent, and ho had heard or people who took their talent* aud wrapped them in tne wiuding sheet of the administration, aud buried them under the Curtom llouso. (Loud laughter and applause.) But in the latter case one of them made a compromise with his duty, and ottered a premium of *250 for ten years, for (lie privilege of making himself a nonentity; but he was responsible to the country, and the speaker would Uave him there if lie liad any. He was contaut to say, in the language of inspiration, that in ?o lar a* tlioto backsliders arc a ncerued, that happened to them according to the proverb, the dog had returned to his vomit, aud the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (Laughter and applause.) The speaker continued to say that he thought the proper way to preserve the Union wa* to do right, and taat this agitation was right, li was the duty of every man here to do right, and leave the consequences to God. Mr. Van Dyck closed by pledging himself to the ticket. . Mr. 11 moth y Jk.nkixs. of Oneida, said that he preferred to talk about the future rather than the past. "We stand her#," he said, "I flrmly believe. th*t we represout the true democracy of New York." (Applause.) 1 acknow ledge that there have been as good democrats as we are, but when they turned to advocate tlio extension of slavery I say that they are no longer democrats, and that we lire. 1 have no prejudices agaioat our S'Uthern brethren, but let them keep their principles to themselves and not attempt to carry slavery into Territories now free. It l* our duty to no home and join hands with every one who I* williug to toin us in opposition to the administration. The question is. bimply, shall we go with those who are o|iposed to us or witii those who arc with us, in this matter? We be lieve that Fremont and Dayton will bo elected, but we want the whole |>eoplc to come into the movement, witn regard to the cry ol disunion, ?ie speaker said that the election of lterce or Buchanan would do far more to help along disunion than any tiling else in the world. It i* a weak mau, like Mr. Kuclianan or Mr. Pierce, that gets the Union into dilliculnes. Put a strong ma*, like Mr. K re mout, and you will have the Union sare, aud the country properly governed. If Mr. Buchanan were elected. Le would be taxing every citizen to buy Cuba; and if that would not do. he preferred to fallow out the principles o' the Osternl circular. He would go to war and seize it by force. It was his policy, it a;>j?cared by tlie Cincinnati reselut.ons, to exteud a gort ol republican protectorate all over the world, to be sustained by the principle of introducing slavery tirst, aud allowing Tree dom to look out lor itself afterward. WARf Hcrr, ol Oneida, pitched into the previous N* tional Convention generally, and said that this convention repretseuted the pure essence of the democracy of >ew York They were here to answer to the platform adopted at Cincinnati. That platform was based on the principle o' the citcnsion of slavery into Kansas and Nebraska and Mr Buchanan, their can lidatc, aays ho u no lotwcr James Bucnanan but tho embodiment or mat platlorm. Tbe answer to those things has been given in the platform we have adopted to day, and 1 trust, said he, it will bo received a* the platform of the democracy of the State. With regyd to the charge that the Fremont party wa* not national. Mr. Hunt said that New York wa* large enough for him. but that the Froaont ticket had thousands or friends south or the Potomac, and tlie reason why Mr. Fremont's vote would not be large was because tbe minority ot the pop ulation, the slaveholders, held the majority with a rod or Iron, aud they dared not vote except as they were dicta ted to. In conclusion, Mr. Hunt pledged himself to the suptiort of Fremont and liayton, and said that Uvceixth* of the people in his county would do likewise. Mr Martin I. Townswu had learned, In 1848, that It wa* the people, not the politician*, who controlled the elections. He also learned, with regret, that Mr. Van Buren did not stand on the same plat form where ho stood In 184*. But Mr. \an Buren did not lead the people in 1848.
