The other and stronger reported the following position was, that the city was bound to act within its delegated powers, and that th» en dorsement of the said proposition was not within tho delegated power*.

BALTIMORE, June 16.—The city is rnpidly filling up. The Douglas and anti-Douglas feeling is intensified in opposition since the Charleston Convention. Several warm con troversies nearly leading to personal collis sions have already been had between promi nent men on the several sides. The Douglas men calculate on an increased vote for him at all events on the 3d or 4th bnllot, and it seems certain they will hold their own on i the earliest ballot. A notice posted at the hotels, stating that delegations desiring ad mission to the Hall of the Convention, will to Caleb Cushing to-morrow, renders olutely certain that Mr. Cuhbiug has 11,3 n Th« to the committee itself to repoit the amount theSecedingDek^gations.

The comm'ttee on credentials reported del egates in attendance. We omit the nainos in detail on account of length. All the counties in the District excepting a few of the smaller ones were represented.—[Ed.] Mr. French offered the following resolution: Resolved, That no person or persons shall be permitted to ca-t the vote for any county vf which he or they arc not citizens. Mr. Bloomer moved to amend by admit ting Judge Street as Delegate of Harrison and Cass counties. Lo»t Resolution adopted h? W giw ad-n.s i is own hands and will give admis-ion to men having 152 votes, which is a good majority over all that will bo in the Convention if Cushing's platform is carried out. desigu in troducing a resolution, binding all the dele- the action of the Convention and support its nominee. If on the adoption of this resolution, the seceding delegates again retire, such States as send new Delegations will be admitted. If the Seceder* remain in, denying the right of the majority to bind their action, then the contestants from Lou isiana, Georgia and Alabama, will apply for a hearing, and an effort will bo made to ad mit them. The main difficulty in carrying out this programme appears now to be the vote of New York. Mr. Corning and others are understood to oppose the resolution, binding the action of the Delegates present, and the vote in the Delegation on this point will be very close indeed, probably 37 to 33, if it should not be beaten. It isnowev'dent! that not less that 20,000 strangers will bt present. It is confidently cxpected that! whatever the programme may be by which! the result is reached, that Douglas will be! nominated and that the greater port-'on of] the South will put an opposition ticket in the field. Rumor points to lion. Caleb Cushing f()r tjjC as nom nee Southern scetion, for President, with Hon. Jeff. Davis for Vice President, on the ground that the nomination for the Prcsideney is immaterial, but that of Vice President is important in the event of the election going to the Senate. The Democratic National Convention ass embled at the Front street Theatre at 10 o'clock, this A. M. The Theatre was not entirely filled at the morning scission, but presented a handsome appcarancc. Some places were vacant. The President having decided not to pass upon the right of the new delegates to seats, and not having issued tickets to those States unrepresented at the adjournment of the Charleston Convention, at 11 o'clock, the President called the Convention to order, and the proceedings were opened with prayer by Rev. John A. Crow, an Episcopal minister of Baltimore. On calling the convention to order, Mr. Cushing stated that the hour of adjournment had passed, but as he had un derstood, a misunderstanding had occurred as to the hour of meeting, some supposing the adjournment to have been til! 12 o'clock, he would direct the roll of States to be called in order to ascertain if all were present. The roll was called, and all the delegates entitled to spAts were found to be present, except a portion of the delegation from Connecticut and Delaware. Preparatory to proceeding to business, the President ad jressed the Convention, giving a detailed account of the stage at which they had arrived and the position of affairs at the hour of adjodrnment at Charleston, and ex horting to Union and harmony. Mr. Howard of Tennessee offered the following: Resolved, That the 8ergcant-at*Arms be instructed to issue tickets to all Delegates of the convention as originally constituted at Charleston. [Applause and hisses from the convention.] The following amendment was offered by Mr. Church: Resolved, That the credentials of %H per sons claiming seats in this convention mad* vacant by the secession of the Delegates at Charleston, be referred to the Committee on Credentials, and said committee is hereby I instructed as soon as practicable to report I the same and report the names of persons emitted to such with the understand fig. hnwww, tbat every p*raon acwpHn^ a, mm fft^^^iimiiifirim iiiwliiiiiffiiiiiiiiiiftifm seat in the convention is bound in honor %nd good faith to abide by the action of this Con vention and support its nominee. Mr. Lanesbury of Delaware, stated that some of the delegates from that State were present, but had no tickets of admissioiv de livered to them, and were waiting ouUide for admission. The chair statedm that tickets had been de livered to the Sergeant-at-Arms to hand to the chairman of the delegation. lie suppos. ed this had been done in every instance since all delegations were represented at Charleston at the time of adjournment. Mr. Lanesbury moved that all the mem* hers of the Charleston convention be admit ted to the floor by the President. The con vention has not been regularly called to or der, and no motion is yet in order. Mr. Pennington of Delaware, said the mo tion of his colleague was not properly under stood, he desired the admission of those del egates who were present at the adjournment of the Charleston convention. Mr. McCook, of Ohio, asked if the chair man of the delegation had arrived at the number of tickets to which he was entitled. Mr. Lanesbury said a majority of the Del aware delegation had remained in the Charles ton convention, and resolved to stay there. The Chair, after an address, to the con vention, presented the fact that new dele gates were applying for admission, he had not undertaken to decide on these claims, but left it to the convention. Mr. Howard of Tennessee, moved to ad mit all the delegations that attended the Con vention. Mr. Kavannugh of Minnesota, moved to lay the resolution on the table, Applause.] Mr. Church asked that the motion nlight be withdrawn, that he might be enabled to offer an amendment which he would read for the information of the Convention. It was to refer all tho claims of new delegates to the Committee on Credentials with in struetions to report as speedily as possible the rames of those who arc entitled to seats, but with the provision that all who accept seats in the Convention are bound in honor to abide by the action of the Convention and support the nominees. This was greeted with immense applause which was checked peremptorily by the Chair. Mr. Clark, of Maryland, offered the follow ing: Resolved, That the citizens of the several States of the Union, have an equal right to settle and remain in the territories of the United States and to hold therein, unmolest ed by any legislation, their slaves and other property, and this Conve ition recognizes the opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States, and the Died Scott case as a true ex position of the Constitution in regard to the rights of the citizens of the several States in the territories of the United States, upon all subjects upon which it treats, and the members of this convention pledge them selves and require all others who may be au thorized as delegates, to make some pledge to support the Democratic candidates. In answer to an inquiry the President sta ted that as the resolution was only read for information, it could not be considered as be fore. the convention. Mr. Cochrane of New York, said this question was not one of aduiission of new delegates it was of far graver importance. A portion of the .seats on this floor were va cant and a question arises, why are they thus vacant. The question also arises, was there justification—was there excuse for the se cession that had left a portion of the seats unoccupied? However thi* n.ight be deci ded, he deemed it well for the convention to bring b.vk their erring brothers. Ilo was most favorable to either the resolutions as they stood. He was unwilling to place any obligation on the returning delegates that will call a blush to their checks or cause a pain to their hearts, but it should be remem bered that such terms were placed upon the delegations from N-w York upon a former occasion, and there might now be some ex cuse for its being opposed. He could assure the convention that they would always be found as they hitherto has been found, on the side of liberty and justice. Mr. Russell, of Va., sail that he had at.a former period felt anxious to address the Convention. He did not feel so now, be cause the vote taken at the morning session gave promise of a desire on the part of the majority to secure harmony of actionon prin ciplesand candidates, but as a proposition had been made to improve these terms, he might vay a few words on the question. Virginia was here emphatically as she had been nt Charleston to harmonize the action of tho -mo?racy. She id seen a rule adopted empowering votes to be cast in a mnnner which she considered unfair to the delegations. BALTIAIOEK, June 18.—Mr. Montgomery thought the pledge required a proper one.— He said that every man who claimed to be a Democrit and a man of honor was bound by the action of the Convention if he re fused to be so bound he was no Democrat.— He was unwilling to admit delegates that they might secede a second time. He ap pealed to the principles and to th manhood of the Convention to say whether they have tbe right to admit the seceders here, when they had called on the States to meet and fill the vacancies. He had heard much said about disunion and was as much op pos»d to it as to those who favored it. When he heard men decline themselves opposed to the principles of the party, he thought it right require a pledge from tlteu to abide by the action of the Convention. Mr. Ew'ng, of Tenn., desired toffee the Democracy presenting a united front, and fighting not their own friends, but the Re publican party. He said that nothing offi cial was known of any'contesting seats from Mississippi, Florida and Texas. He desired to have the States named admitted. There was no reason why they should be left out. 1 be South believed that if a majority of the Northern States adopt principles that the Southern men cannot adopt, it is competent and honorablo for them to withdraw. He had exhorted southern States not to with draw, and his constituents would not justify him in such action. He concluded by ex horting the Convention to strike out Ar kansas and admit Mississippi, Florida and Texas. Mr. Loring, of Mass., was surprised to find any op^Jtjon to the admission of the scoedirg delegates to »he convention. He had heard for the first time u. Democratic convention talk of sections of the ~Mintry and party. lie denied the right of tbe eon vention fo insist on a pledge from any del­ iMmmmtimKSm egate. lie could only add that if any prop osition to exclude Florida was carried out he would go along. Mr. Merrick, of III, said his State was ready to abide by th* decision of the con vention. Mr. King, of Mo., argued that the seced ing delegations should be subject to the will of the Convention, and if report* were true they were ru»t entitled to seats. Mr. Atkins, of Tenn., said his State had a high regard her Northern friends.— She is a sound Democratic State. Her De mocracy made no pledges and no tests.— Whenever the candidate was named he was ready to support him. He wanted no friends that would sacrifice the Democratic party on the altar of ambition. He concluded by moving the previous question. A motion was made to adjourn, which was negatived. BALTIMORE, June 19.—The convention was called to order at 10 o'clock this morning. The convention unanimously agreed to a suspension of the rales that this might be done.

In recommending Dr. Baker's Pain Pana cea, we do not mean that it is a specific in all cases, and never fails, and that all those who uso it will never die. We can honestly as sert that it has been used in thousands of families who were suffering under the differ ent diseases for which it is recommended, and in every case entire satisfaction has been given. In most of them, such was the hap py effect of it that Ih-v uld but say the cure was truly wonderful, it having notonlv cured their pains, but saved them large out lays for doctor's bills.
