BIS DEFENCE OF THE UNION ELECTORAL TICKET. *1 Gorernor WtuBh.ugton Hunt addrtiMd & Urge uJ swtbnstU'.lc meeting tut evening at tbe Bell and Everett headquarters, Wo. CM Broadway, in defence of tbe Union electoral ticket. Tbe address wu delivered on tbe Iivitatteo of tbe Central Commilte^of tbe Young Men's National Colon Club. Mr Runt, on hie Introduction by Mr. Lloyd, chairman Of tbe Centra) Committee, wu greeted witb loud cheer* ? Be Mid that, in accepting tbe Invitation of the committee, it wu bia leading purpose to present a full and tank exposition of tbe consideration* which had deter mined bis oourse in favor of tbe Union electoral ticket j now presented to tbe national men of this 8late for tbair ncppcrt. Be addressed himself to tboee like him, who had long occupied an intermediate and conservative poel Uon between extremes. He intended to confine htmselfto practical view of tbe question which the crisis compels ns to consider and decide, dfco constitutipoal Union party wu formed tor tbe expreu and avowed purpose of arrest tag sectional agitation and reviving sentiments of mutual : friendship and harmony between tbe sections. It bad Its origin in patriotic solicitude for the safety and tran qutlity of tho Union. It embraces in its ranks a large body of loyal and conservative citisens, in every port, jn of onr country, who regard sectional conflict as an evil which must be ai rested, if wa would insure the stabil.ty of our natlounl institutions Its first and paramount ub- j lectio to defeat and prostrate geographical combinations, I Whether in the North or the South; and to this tud it proposes to make every elTort, aud employ all ihu means coos.stent witb tbe dictates of personal honor and patri- I Otic duty. In this spirit, and lor tbe attainment ol'this desirable result, the National Union Convention nominated John Jteil and iidward Everett. We are not to lose fight of these dsflnitoand patriotic aims in considering tne duty ot tbe Union men of New York in this momentous crisis He waa tree to say tbat in big earner reneciioos ' an to the courts of duty, bis mind waa not wholly free from embarrassment. Ia tbe conclusion a', which be | arrived, be was governed solely by a desire to adopt and pursue tbe lioc of policy which would most surely put aa end to domeutic strife, and secure the peace and welfare of tbe country. Our position m this Plate was peculiar. Tbe republican parly had keen .u a minority from the drat It never carried the State by a majority of all the votes. It waa suffered to take and wi dd the power of the State, through the dl aided action ul its opponents. Tue national whig*, Americans snd conservatives ha -e occupied middle ground, in the bops Uut*. the republicans would abandon their sectional organisation and return to a national position, but, OB lading that they were resolved to prolong tbe contact OB abstraction and pretexts, we were forced to meet tbe (Motion wbctber ws would romaln isolated and continue aavailing eliorta, or seek to combine all tbe elements of true national feeling In such a manter as to resoue tbe Btate and give a check to the progress of agitation and taction a) discord. In considering this question, be did act fail to communicate freely with many of tbe leading fytends of our cause In every part of tbe I'nion. There was but one response. From every quarter there was Ike same universal appeal, "Union for the sake of tbe Daioa." Ills own opiniocs harmonized with the sentl ecu of the true friends of Hell and Everett everywhere. He bad considered it due to himself, in view of kls relations to the action of the Naitoual Convention, to taforra both of those eminent and patriotic men. in advance, tbat he would adopt no course which they Would not declare to be consistent with bis personal konor, his obligations to thorn, to lb<* cause, and, above all, to Ibe country, which is dear?r to them than auy personal qualification whatsoever He was very ooiitl gent that be bad doue nothing ami proposed nothing Which wou'd Incur tbe d sippruvsl of our pair .otic candidates lor President and Vice President of the United States. Tbe practical question to Ihj determined wai in what manner we of New York could toatribuie most effectually to tbe election of Bell and Everett. Was :t to k? done by throwing way one hundred t house ad Boeservalive rotes on a distinct doctoral ticket, or was it our duty to unite on lirst principles with other national men who arc alike opposed to tbe danger? of sectionalism' The former course would give the reC" ' cans an easy victory. It wuild again unable to carry tbe State without any effectual regis lance. Thert fot e they seem to think that the nati.> ial men are morally bound to remain divided, for lbs E-eiai interest and convcn enee of th'-republican party, t the Union party decided, end r a just seuse ol tli ir responsibility to Oou an1 th -ir country tbat it is t ie doty of all national men to un t* and that all who do-, re lo promote that m re 'perfect union" d< signed by the federmlcoo'l tut n ovcnl n IV cr.vis to r 'trie t grth-sr aad Join hands in one maul.v ??-r.*r . oil >rt ;,.r ie rescue of tb" S ale and the sai- deliverance of tbe Count ry from imi? mi iq dangers Tne same a-ttnieol tn .mi: -d tbe maar, of the demotralic pan) lllkfedl Wtaftft Ubeir support to Mr hourim rar iur rnnwanj |uiKn tor Dom. as ) Tuey, lik? u*. desire hati 'Qal |>e* - > id Inocora once ro->rc anu fi-el the pavamo.ini of rebukim ac ilat n *n i arre t ! * *1 . .'ial strife Tn y. so lea* thuti our?? lve*. are er.ra :ed In op?n and 111-ly remittance t? the *?>irit of sedition and dlcumon .a'tte onlb. and to tb" of c. -. >? i a the N" >rI!

TbV manner in which they hare arraigned Uk?-- gculiemen, their imputations of :>and, deception, 4c.. eah.bit a decree of insolence and a Klacity unparal; *'< d in the annals of political controversy. We hurl back ?:isucb charges with unutterable scorn. The names which they thus ruthlessly assail are among the first and highest In the land for honor, patriotism ud an unsullied fame. In this cty need 1 say that Itopeyster Ogden. w.ijiam Kent Md Iwniel B. St. John are men Incapable or dishonor in Lhe discharge of any pnblio or private duly? r?iualiy needless would it be in Western New York to defend the namee of Burrows or Carroll, or any of our ch sen representatives from these licentious railings of a degraded and prostituted press. The republican leaders have much to say the impropriety Md inconsistency of coalitions, and some of tbem go so far as to object to tncm on a pie* of morality He bad alwavs maintained tbat while men may d-flbr in opinion on m.uor or abstract quest.-, up, It ia it'll their duty to unite th?ir effort* and make com mf.n cause whenever the public good will thereby be promoted. Only two yeara ago we aaw a noble coalition in the Senate of the 1'nited States. Crittenden, Douglas, Bell and Seward coalesced in resisting the lecompton cou ititutien and maintaining the nghta of Kansas. From that day to tbia the republicans hare endeavored to form coalition* with ibe Blends of Douglaa whenever they could gain an office or defeat an opponent by the alllarce. Many of tbcir leaders advised the election of Douglaa to ibe Senate in preference to I. in coin, and it is too tale for them to complain ot any who may now prefer Douglaa to Lincoln for the Presidency. There are questions upon whrh you and 1 dlfii-r in opinion from Mr. Douglas, but there can be no doubt Ih.-l a large majority of tbo reepectlve friends of Bell and Douglas would prefer the choice of either to the election of Lincoln, for the reason that they would ooue.der it more favorable to the safety, repote and prosperity of the whole country. He believed there were gentlemen present who would remember a political alliance formed in this Stato in 1832. The friend* of Henry Cley united with the supporters of William Wirt upon a common electoral ticket. At its head was the honored nan.c of James Kent, and the ticket was supported upon the explicit understanding that it elicted, the college should cast the \ote of the State "in such manner as it should deem judicious and expedient at the tunc of voting;'' thus leaving to the electors the -lis! e retien which the constitution contemplate' The resistless popularity of General Jackson prevailed over all combined etlorts. If iho frietola of llenry Clay could tben unite with the suppirfors of another candidal-*. ought we to hesitate, who still sustain the principles oi , union and naliona'ity, of which ("day was the embodlnu Ltv if they sustained James Kent and Jonn C. ojiencci as electors on a joint ticket, cannot we, with a good con. science, rote ft>r William Kent and l?epej8ter t)gden? Koi bis own part, if be must vote an electoral ticket bearing democratic names, he would is soon adopt tho names ol Reuben H Walworth and Addison Cardiner, ss those o| ' William C Bryant and Abijah Heck with. Mr. Bryant who hi ads the republican ticket, is a gentleman whom we all admire lor bis poetic genius and literary attain incuts but you cannot forget that he bas expended i large js-rvion of life in assailing tho statesmen and th< principles which were most dear to the old whig party Yet there are tboee who consider us very incon sistcnt in withholding our suffrages from him In lh< present contest. The truth is, that tbo republicans art the 'art people who ought to complain of coalitions Their party bad its birth in a coalition of portions of seve ral distinct parties In all its proceedings it presents a whig side and a democratic side. If they nominate the old whig lur President tbey present an extreme lor Vice Preaident; if four candidates for State officers two whig and two democratic, and for State electors, twe exi client gentlemen who were never suspected of holdiug a pom,rai sentiment id romuiou me pr.iciiuii miu ri ti ami of that party Is to elect President by a geographi cal vote oi the North against tbo south. Ignoring oa all other subjects, tbcy agree oa this. But a majority of the v topic even in the tree States are opposed to tbia proposition lor making a President ol the I nlon by the rote ol ore teci ion. We deem it an unwise and dangerous experiment, in derogation of the -pint of union, contrary to the dcs'gn of the federal corooact and to toe precept a Ml example of our lathers. We believe It will widen the gull ol aeparation between the sections, cause a ati!! l?ig<-r portion of our count i> in-n to ueteat our common government, engender yet tb-rcer conllicta, expose the whole country to at leant fo :r years ofr .r.fusioo an I uiicerta nty, and paralyze the government In soma of ita moat uif iul ftnllf? Thc-e wo Mr deliberate opinions. Utiu rtiy entertaining them wc feci bound to oppose by all righi in< ana tbe election of the C lilaf Magistrate by h atclionat vote. We deem it ossrt.tial, whoever ia elected, that l.e should have some substantial support in both sections. But when national men unite to prevent the triumph of a go graphical comb.nation, we are rudely art ailed as if wc were invading the political rights of some portion of the people. It Is pretended that we sees to defeat the will ot tbe majority. Our real aim la pre oMjr tbe reverse of this. Wo purpose, if poaaibir. tc prevent a sectional minority from taking the power 01 tin Mr I'niou into us bands. It cannot be pretended thai Lhc republican party einbraci s more than otic third ol thi w hole people. The raturna of ISod prove that iltey wcr< MlS i iat proportion. They were in a minority, tak e| the free Stales alone, Yet a genera) bowl is so. furth whtn it is proposed that the majority un:ti and vote down this minority. We hear maov on .lections to an election by the House of Kepio arntatives. It is certainly desirable that a majority of tin people should elect; but he would dciy the wit H mun to invent a more dangerous or unjust method th-.i for one reel ion to make tbe lie Mill by Ma own evem sue action, and that with tbe concurrence of leas tbnt one hwlf ct tte people in that section (live us any ecu stilutional mode of selection iu preference to lb* \< one (an doubt that Mr. l .nco'.n will lurk a million of voter of baring a majority of all tbe people.

Ni>r Is it certain that In will receive a larger popular vote Mr. Hell, while <u between tbe two more than two thirds of tbe pec m woulj prefer the latter lie eouteuded that we h*<' neither the tnorai nor political r.ght to permit such i minority to control the election if we have the power t< prevent it. In this Slate the minority has prevailed unti they seem to consider the possession 01 power an inbe rent right. It la not best that tbe republicans iboult rile any longer unless they can show a majority ot their side, instead of a plurality. In some imports, lit] bar. ;, d to give is a good govern m>nt.

U,, ha SPEECH OF HOI. ROBERT C. SCHEJCR. lrj MM? no A regular meeting of the Young Uun's Hepublicaa Union on was held at the rooms in the Stuyveeant Inbtitute, So. ^ 669 Broadway, at eight o'clock last evening Judging g ! from the tremendous blast of horns which had been made Br : In the rennhlican iaornala of the eltr. it was einectcd that there would have been a grand rally of lha rail up!it- ^ tm' battalion to bear an address from tho Hon. Robert t(?] C. Sfchcnck, fbrmcrly Cnttod states Minister to Brazil, ^ anil for many year* member of |G>rgrrM from Ohio, aa well as a speech from Col. C. J. Jack, of Brooklyn?who, ^ by the way, did not put In an appearance?aa well aa ^ aomo singing cntbo part of the ciee Club. Ail tbeso Q gleesome preparations tell far short of the raart^ and the ' J preliminary Couriahea were entirely barren of results. b(] ' At the opening of the meeting there were not pr-^ont over a hundred persons, and though tho numbers slightly I increased in the course of the evening, the/ as rap.dly c[ j diminished as the proceedings woro on. | Tho President, Mr. Ous. T. Rodubw, called tho meet I Ing to order at a little after eight o'clock, when, aa the __ ' advertised speakers did not make their appearance, Tl Bon. Robert C. .-chcnck, of Ohio, was introduced by Mr Piatt. Mr. Sckswt eai.l be was present by accident in New i I York, and although bo did not oven know that ho had been advertised to spoak until that morning, be felt that | ho could not refrain where the interests of republlcau- " ism were concerned. Be intended henceforth, and until h(?i J Abraham Lincoln be olected Prealdcnt In November next, to devote all his energies towards the succosa of a work ?'J which was of so much important, to every republican; cai and for this reason ho was about immediately to return to ^ the West. Iio tad expected that be would have had the plcasuro of meeting his fellow citizens for tho first d<" time at a public meeting in New York, on the occasion of rtc the great republican rai'flcation meeting which it is pro- , posed to bold, but as be found that that demonstration would not take place for some time, and finding that his an name bad been announced publicly to address the Young jf Mm s Republican Union, be had consented to make a few remark-. Be, however, thought that his friend ' who had preceded him might well have been Er left to defend republican principles ru they are q, held and believed in the great Northwest, as the wit, . eliqueiu o and Uient of the gentleman are never amiss, wl call on him where and when you may. (Appiauao.) bk Some person had announced in one of the newspapers fr< that be (Mr. 3chcnc.k) would address the pnbllc. It was stated by thb writer that be (Mr. S.) was a whig of the 01 old party of neury Clay. He was glsd to inform tbem wl that this was quite true, and It was because he was s Henry Clay whig that he wan now found acting with the republican psrty, and he hoped that ho would always be found in their ranks until he can be convinced of the no Matty of their doctrines by some better argument than ev any be bad ever beard. It had also been stated that be bad rerused to bo sold out to tbo DU democracy. Bo did not know that there was bit any necessity for mentioning this, as be did not come ,1( from a part of the country where such bargains are entered into at all. lie mentioned this merely to rebut ou any false opinions that might be hold on this subject in his cplDloD, considering the time and the occasion, tho 1 muse. IMM himself and his qualifications for the office, he bad always believe), uod still believed, that the Demi- Ki I out an of Abm. Lincoln was the very best, the wisest and po the most judictou- that could have been made by the re- , ' imlilirati- for the Presidency of the United States, an 1 i Tenf will be shown to the world by the triumphant result of that nomination :n tho month of Novcm bh brr text. (Applause.) He stood there before thea and said ibis only as one of the Innumerable * 1 hosts of the people of the mighty Northwe-t, who th are toinjr to tan e Lincoln in their arms sad boar him for- u, 1 ward to the higbrri position which is In the ({1ft of the . ' MOflS. The people are divided into parties on the qites[ lion of slaviry, but. thonsh there may be cries of In ion si | sod disunion, there was s deep rooted feeling .n the iu( ) minds of the people ?nd an attsehment to the Union and tho constitution which can never be shaken. The repub- ln [ lieont were conservative above all parties, because they th were snx oug to carry the country back to the old lights, * and to save It tr<?m the new lights which have 1 only sprung up as a delusion vud s mare. He was lL ! hnt>py that, whatever occurred, tbsre would always Sr J be found a etrosig ground swell, that vuM m control all the little waves of disturbance sod carry the country safely through. If Mr. Breckinridge be elected. cl the republicans were determined to submit to tho tu1 tbority of the large maturity of the pooplo if Douglas Pt i be chosen, they will be obedient to his authority: if Ians I be the successful candidate, they will still stand by the 11 I constitution and the laws; and if Abraham Lincoln be tti elerated to the h gh (wsitlon of Chief Magistrate?as i very republican had an abiding faith that hs will? I they would still be found standing by the constitution I" I ana the Union, and they would see that others Ai j should do no too. He then spoke of the doc .. * trlnes cf republicanism, which he said involved ' nothing beyond this. They do not seek to interfere with *>' aJavcry where it exists by legal authority, but they de no maud that it shall be there condned: and, by the help of { ?-od ai.d the votes of the people, slavery shall not be any , further extended. (Applause ) He went on to review tni th plallrmsof the several candidates. He locked upon co the Douglas platform at a fraud and swlndl^wan attempt ! , ' to earry water en both shoulders. The result must be ' that the water will lie spilt on one or both shoulders, an 1 . an . Douglas will go down n the midst Douglas says t? the i p, S< cih that -.avcry ,? c-tabllabM by the constitu- . ton, and to the North he says. ' Yon have j the jswer to suppress slavery." Tills wns no pt more than an attempt to sw Indie one part of the country h; at the cxpetse of the other. Thank God, the roctituUou of the United States ban not established anything but free c< ' institutions. He argued that slavery caunot l>e local pro to rerty and general property at the same t me If It be ? ?:< dcta, prop- rty. th< u the escaped alavecan be recaptured ' nary port of the I nlon like horse* or rattle, by the same process, and there can be no need of a Fugitive m Slave law. If it be local property, it must be governed j M cot rely by Peal law. He did not te- bow tho question i could be disposed of in sty other wsy.
