SERENADE TO JUDGE DOUGLAS tin A?n *?. Tammany Ball made an effort last evening to do some^i?l worthy of ber former renown. The great unterrlgod who worship at that shrine congregated in considerable numbers in response to a eel I to the "national democratic electors of the city and county of New York, who are in favor of regular nominations and the usages af the party," for the purpose of ratifying the nomination of Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, for President, and Bertchel V- Johnson, of Georgia, for Vice President. A hand of music was stationed on the balcony of Tammany Ball, a calcium light caat its rays from the same position, and skyrockets and Roman candles sere discharged at Intervals. These attractions succeeded in congregating (Site a large assemblage. The hall waa full, almost unnsmfortably so, and there was much enthusiasm exhibited for Douglas. The meeting was called to order at a quarter post eight 'clock by Wm. F. Kennedy, who proposed as chairman Ks Mayor Daniel F. Tiemann. KX-MATOR TIKHAVN'S 8PKECIT. Mr. Tun an.v, on taking the chair, said:?I am much Obliged to you for doing me the honor of calling opon me to preside over Una meeting. I consider that wo are on the eve of one of the most important lections that this country has ever known. We liave Cla sort of triangular fight this time, a sort of free hi- but when the November election comes on we will nave but one democratic party throughout the Union. (Cheers.) It is my opinion that the only way in which we can perpetuate and insure the safety of this Union is for the democratic party to be one and indivisible. (Loud Cheers.) When the democratic party is broken up thes we have very little hope of preserving the Union, for It is really the only conservative party in the country. Gentlemen, again 1 thank you for the honor of calling mo to preaide ovcr this mocting. (Applause.) The Pjuwipsnt then announced the following gentlemen M Vice Presidents:?

OEOROE W. JONES, OP TENNESSEE. Ex member of Oorgrcga, the Hon. Gro. W. .Toxics, of Tennessee, was next Introduced. Ho declared himself a demoerat?a Tennessee democrat. He was born in Virginia and lived in Tennessee, and bad always advocated the principles of Thus. Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. (Cheers ) He addressed the democrats before him as his countrymen, because they were still In the same I'nton, I lived under the same constitution, and were protected I under the same stars and stripes. He trusted In God that tbe constitution and I'uion would coutinuc to dispense their blessings on all parts of the country while a white man lived in the land. He had taken an early through ticket with tbe democratic party, and tbe ale of that party would be his fate. (Cheers.) Hew-as here to join with them to-night In ratifying the nomination of Douglas and of Johnson. And whyT Because these loaders stood on the Cincinnati platform, adopted at Cincinnati at the requoit of Southern delegates. If it was sound then It waa sound now. At least It waa aound enough fbr bins. Where did Stephen A. Ikiuglaa now staodf He stood where tbe entire democratic |wrty stood In ISM ?where James Buchanan and John C- Breckln. rh'ge stood. (Good.) He (Mr. Jonce) believed in tbe great doctrine of the Declaration of Independence that all government* derived their great power* from the consent of the governed. If they kept thut principle in view they would never get far uff the truck The constitution was made for the wliote country. for all tlx- Mates. and If properly administered there would be no necessity for any jam. I/ot each separate community form their domestic institutions in their own way, subject only to Hie great charter of their liberties, the constitution of the I'niled Stales. lie believed firmly m the right and power of men to govern themselves. lie who would deprive an American of bis constitutional right le cause he lived in the Territories was no democrat. In conclusion he promised to give his feeble support to the nominees of the regular Baltimore Convention, and be called for three hearty cheers for the chosen leaders of tbu democracy. Stephen A. Douglas and Hcrsehcl V.Johnson. (Hip, hip, hurrah !) M'CTCir OF WWATOK POOH. Senator I'r<;n, of Ohio, was introduced and received with cheering. He Mid he was desirous before bis return b?me to fee bow the democracy of the Empire State would receive their |allnot delegation after the scenes of Charleston and Baltimore. It was the sObject of reproach sr.d spec station whether the administration of James Uu chanan would or could not buy the State of New York. (Ibree cheers war# propped for the New York delegation and given with great enthusiasm; also three cheers for Mr Hugh ) The speaker proceeded to say that he was i ne of the delegates from "hio and day after day and lr>ur afU r how tb?ir ewrs were vased by the preteusioiis of the sdministratiou and Its satellites, that it had made a bargain with the New York delegation (groans); but aa often as the New York delegation was railed, with a virtue worthy of the best days of the republic, It repelled that lal-e slander. (Cheers.) Would any earnest man oil h:m why the regular nominees of the democratic party should not now, as In IMS and in 1W>'J, and of all former times back to the days of Jeflbrson, receive the united support of the democracy of the Tailed Males? (Voices?"Theyj will.' ) There could be no roatou for It except the determination of a mere clique of men. n bier minority, ovrrwhelmeil, rebnked and repudiated by ibe iwoplc. that they will govern the democracy or they w ill ruin It. (Voices?"They can't do It.") Xo, sirs, they cannot; they will ruin themselves. (A voice?"They are played out." Another democrat added? They win go to lien every one of them.") When the Convention met at Charleston It wan s spectacle such as no other iiolitical Convention ever presented. Evsry Male of the Cnton and every Congressional district tn every Wale was hilly represented, and what spectacle could I* uw-re grealfol to a patriotic heart, whether It beat In a Northern or Southern breast, whether from the Atlantic or the Hm ific. from the Males which border on the lak. s dividing us from Canada, to the valley of the Imperial Mwlastppl* Why was It that that great counsel of the nation, whr re all the Mates were represented by delegates, did not peaceably, promptly and quietly perform lb- i-tin c for whs h it was elected?

(Great laughter and cheers.) When they go out from us, naving never been of us, having stayed with ua for the spoils of office, we remove from our consciences the rtproach which has borne us down for so many years. The democracy of the North at last can look up confident not only in the honesty of ita principles but in the bunealy of its representatives, and they call upon the American people to make gooa by their verdict In Noveml>er the eternal principles of truth and justice taught by Jrflfersoa and Jackson. I respond to the sentiment of my friend from Baltimore. 1 want non-intervention on the subiect of slavery In the Terr lories: I an end to thin question. It hu reared this country lor forty-five years; it has been the skeleton of our households. threatening from hour to hour the frustration of our dearest hopes and the hopes of our children. It has been settled and cemented by the blood of statesmen, or heroes and martyrs?it has been settled upon the broad ground of all flree governments?the right of the people (subject to tbe paramount law?the constitution of ihe United States), to regulate their domestic institutions as they please. (Cheers 1 If the question Could not stand upon that foundation it could never stand, and our government itself would be a failure, our free Institutions would bave to be abandoned, and the hope which caused their hearts to beat proudly and Joyfully would be forever quenched. Be believed in tbe capacity of tbe people for free government, whether that people reside In the Ptate of New York or in the most remote section of the West, and asked, in tbe language of Jefferson, if tbo wisdom of tbe people could not be relied upoD, where could they get a better class to teach them, unless God sent angels from heaven to guide men? At this Juncture of the Senator's speech, the Empire Club, from Madison square, entered the hall, preceded by a splendid band of music. The club carried torches and Illuminated banners, with such inscriptions as "Empire Club," "Uld Guard,'' "Douglas and Johnson" and other appropriate mottoes. While they were marching round the hall h cannon was fired oil in tho Dark and fireworks were discharged in front of the building. This Interruption was the signal *>r great enthusiasm.) Senator Prcn in conclusion said that the democracy intended to preach the funeral sermon of tbe Black republicans in November. Those who bad deserted tbe democratic organization and ret up candidates against tho regular nominees were aniious to bids their nakedness by proposing a compromise. "We will have no compromise/' said tbe S|?aker. If they left us upon a question of principle, It would be dishonorable to them to make any ct mpromise; if they did not leave us upon a question of principle, but uj>on a mere pretest, we should dishonor and disgrace ourselves to receive them back on any terms, especially when they have in their ranks such notorious men as Yett and Yanry. I can see no difference in the ultimate result of the destiny of this Union whether Breckinridge or Lincoln be elected. If we are driven to a bargain, let us, In God's name go to some party that recognizes all the States In the Union alike. (A voice?"Tbe Union party.") But I bar* frith In the courage of the democratic party; X bave frith in the miraculous fortunes of its chosen leader; be lias whipped the rail-splitier and the administration, and be will whip the rell splitter and the junior partner or the administration again- (Great applause, during which the speaker resumed bis seat.) KPMAHKft OP MB. J A MPS OARPINKB, OP OKOfifllA. Mr. James Gaum***, of Georgia, was the next speakerFour years ago be stooid upon a platform in this city to meet the assembled democracy of New York, and ba mi l iuvin ugaiu ?>rinoHU w jueuge mrir uuoiiiy vo IQO democratic party. Ilow bard It waa for a selfish mind to be grateful. Mr Buchanan held bia sent | sully through the cfl< rtr of Stephen A. IVnipla*. Yet he waa rallying bin political three* to prrarh dlaunion and break up tbe old organization of the democracy to defeat him. He beHe veil thut Bucbauun might a* well Are pop gun* against the rock of Gibraltar a* against tbe Arm position of Douglas. Mr. Buchanan bad succeeded in letting from bla veins the last drop of democratic blood. But tiers waa enough of the i ere blood running through tbe bearta of tbe iron hearted and Iron fisted democracy to teach blm not to scorn tb< m. The pretest waa raised that the Cincinnati platform, which was satisfactory In 18M, needed amendment, but upon what grounds? That tbe 8upreme Court had given an interpretation whteb was not understood by t hw-draM cvary. The deelatma af the Hnpt ibi (Mart were State rights la their eaaence sad every particular. The opinion of that court waa one upon which the democracy of this country could stand. The aame principle was Involved which induced the thirteen colonics to divide from ihe gigantic |>owrr of the British government and was incor) orated atill later in the famous compromise measures. 7hose principles were ratified at Baltimore by tbe aomii a th>a of Douglas and Johnson. Those gentleman were t< m mated qua that platform and would be triumphantly eUct(d.

Alter the ratification meeting in Philadelphia on Saturday night Judge Douglas received the honor of a serenade, to which be responded as follows:? Fellow Citizens of Philadelphia?It seems as though you were determined to overwhelm me with your kindness whenever I enter your city. The most magnificent reception I have seen extended to any man I received at your hands less than two years since, on my entry into your beautifbl city. To night I had supposed I was to come quietly to retire to sleep without meeting such a number of my fellow citixens,hut when I found such a demonstration as this, so imposing in numbers and in everything which adila force to it, f could not refrain from making my appearance, not to make a speech, only to express my gratitude for the compliment you have paid me. (Applause.) 1 have no political speeches to make during the pending canvass. If my political opinions are not known to the people of the United States, it is not worth while for mo to attempt to explaia them now. (Applause.) It now rcmaiDS for the people to take the matter into their own hands, to make such decisioi of the great issue before tho country as will preserve the constitution inviolate, aa the surest and only method of perpetuating his glorious Union. (Applause.) Pennsylvania has a mighty interest in the preservation of the republic. She, from her geographical position, is .bound to remain as she began?the keystone of the federal arch. (Applause.) Pennsylvania Las the elements of an empire within her own limits?all the elements of greatness, whether you look at her natural, her commercial, her manufactures, at the raw material, the mineral wealth?everything which contributes to make a great country is to be found within the limits of the Key stene .^tato. (Applause ) And, in my opinion, the people of Pennsylvania have come to ths conclusion that the Congress of the United States can be b*u?r employed in dtiveJopie* tbe great material resoirees of the country than in wasting time by forcing slavery or antt slavery ujon the peojiie, (Applause ) The constitution of the 1 United Slates lias conferred upon tho federal government certain |?wers and duties which vhty ought to perform. Irl that federal government be confined strictly within that narrow sphere of federal duties, leaving tho people of tbe States and Territories free to govern themselves without any dictation from federal ofiicere. (Immense .peering ) My friends, 1 said 1 bad no political speeches to make, and 1 will not permit the temptation of thla vast and enthusiastic assemblage, by the repeated cheering and com pi i meets, to make me lor a moment v iolato the resolve.
