They have, re epensive to a popular clamor, postponed their National Cunveution from the 4th of July till September. Meantime a difficulty has arisen, a question of authority. The committee which called and now has postponed the Con vention was that ot which Mr. August Bel mont is chairman—the com util tea of the Douglas wing of the party In 1800. Since the postponement it has been discovered and vehemently asserted that that committee had no power, tbe only committee to be recogniz ed being that chosen by the Breckinridge and Laq« faction, known aa tbe committee of tbe National Democracy. Of that committee Gen. 1.1. Stevens was chairman, but he is out of the way, having fallen gallantly at the sec ond Bull Uuo battle. Col. Florence, of Phil adelphia, comes next in rank on that commit tee. The postponement will giro, time for tbe development of all the latent devil element in the factious leaders, which has been slumber ing, or at least has not been rampant, it is an unsettled question which faction has p.e vaiied iu the postponement, but tbe following •xtracts may aid those who are cuiious to in vestigate the matter. Tbe New York News, the Droonrtv anil the nroan nf the Weeds— Fernando and lien, both ultra “Peace Demo crat*"—said a few days before the postpone ment r “ There is every reason why a hasty and premature nomination should be avoided by ibe democracy; the black Republicans at 15al ii more have nominated their candidate, and the war democrats at Cleveland have nomin ated their candidate. We can watcb their manoeuvres, search for their strung points and their weak points, and protli as well by their errors as by a knowledge of their ad vantage*.” Per contra we have the Journal of Com merce, the i'lieud of Seymour and “Little Mac," which says, since the postponement; “The Dein crats have made a sad blunder, and yielded the Urst line of intrenchments to the enemy. The adjournment ol the conven tion is a serious mistake. It is Idle to conceal it, for now the only hope is in getting some wisdom into the heads of the managers, who appear as in old times so he pulled by wires. Already faction lifts its head. Another dem ocratic committee is in the Held, and it is hard to say which is the real authuiity, if there is any authority. Uuless the democra cy look out there wilt be a scrub-race amoag various subdivisions who will grow up during the summer, and, as in a donkey raw, the question will bo who shall come in last, for no one will think of winning by being ahead.” * Referring to this new trouble of the Democ racy, and the course of the metropolitan pa pers iu relation to it, the Evening Post says: a,'hu>prTin7\\fn?t *? ,Ws ">«Uer now is, tu&t W ood and \ fcil&ndighaw havp. after ao arduous struggle, gamed a decided victory over tdeir rivals amongst the opposition load, ers. The Daily News triumphs—the Journal of Commerce is def lated—the World submits and passes quietly under the yoke. Nor is this result strange; for of the two factions, that controlled by Fernando Wood and Vallaadighaui is the stronger by reason of its lack of pretence. It does not pretend to support the war for the Union; it does notyisudemn rebellion; it says what it means In tolerably plain language; wtiile the other faction blows alternately hot and cold—Is for war, but opposed to war measures; blames the reliels but would not have them hurt; joins reliels and loyal men in oue condemna tion, an 1 openly lets the world know that it cares lor nothing but office. Men animated by such sordid considerations have no chance against men like the Woods sud Vallandig ham; they can lie only the too's of these, as in jormer limes they were the servants of the slaveholders.” Delegates from Portland. The delegates to the Union State Conven tion, elected by the wards, Saturday evening, are requested to meet at the counting-mom or the Press otlics at 3 o'clock this afternoon for the pur; ose of electing a delegate at large. The Democratic Party and Slavery A correspondent lias called our attention to ; the (set that when the vote was taken in tht House of Representatives on the resolutlot | preliminary to a chinge of the Constitution I abolishing and forever inhibiting slavery every Democrat, w ith the exception of ihrei voted against the proposed amendment, “ihu u*ing the positiou that the Democratic party a< a party, is iu favor of the perpetuation o ‘ slavery.” Otrr correspondent adds: Four years siuce every Democratic mernbei in Cougress voted iu J'ucor of the satin amendment that noio the Democratic delega tion have voted against and defeated. This is a mistake. The Democratic party has seen the time that it occupied anti-slaver) I grouud. It did so in this Stale when, in 18i9, in the largest delegate convention that up to that time had ever assembled in the I Slate, it passed &u unmistakable ami-slavery and non-extension of slavery resolution—a resolution iu favor of Congressional preven tion of the spread of slavery—with only out dissenting vote, the solitary tote of Mr. Bion Bradbury, of Kastport. But never within lour years, pr double that time, has the Demo cratic party occupied a position that, by any possibility could he construed into one ol hostility to slavery, opposition to its extension, or even lack of sympathy for it as an clement of political power. Four years ago—In 1S60—when Mr. Bu chanan was yet in office, a resolution passed by the necessary two-thirds vote, providing for an amendment of the Constitution infator of ulacery. That proposed amendment was designed to secure, the eternal perpetuation : of slavery in the vtates against any possible adverse ioterferance on the part of the federal government, and to give such a new “guaran | tee” to slavery every Democrat voted. Even Mr. Lincoln expressed his willingness, in order to satisfy the South, to put such a provision into the fundamental law, as a peace j measure—to preveut the hostile attitude which tlie South was then assuming. The last day of the sissiou of the Legislature of 1861, Mr. 1 Bradbury, of Kastport, offered a resolution to approve that prepared amendment, aud he I and Mr. Gould, of Thomaston, advocated its adoption, but it was indefinitely postponed by an overwhelming vote, live Democrats only ( in the house degrading themselves liy voting ! for it. . - uaner s cavalry.

We aru now a Regiment ol mourned Caval ry, havmg received our horses la*t Tuesday. They are old cavalry horses, which makes it lar easier for us. Wednesday we went on an excursion towards Petersburg, tiding about Iiweni/y-dve miles; rather a hard Jaunt for the Ifrst one. We thought we were goiug to have tome fun with the rebs, but ou arriving near where the battle was then going on, we turn ' cd around and came back to our old camp ground. The next day, Thursday, we went out to the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad, aud assisted the Infantry in tearing up the track.

Nor will they look in vain. Whatever is propose I to he done for the brave soldiers of our noble army—God bless | ■ heilfall—whether it be to succor the body, | relieve the uiind, or benefit the soul, secures it oucc the sympathy and aid of the .loyal people. Though war is a terrible scourge, and though we are commanded, if it he possible, to live peaceably with all men, yet even this 1 war has developed trails in the American char at ter, which otherwise had remained partially dormant, hut which in their lull de velopment constitute our highest glory. We refer to an advertisement in our columns by which it will be teen that a train returns to the city after the concert on Thursday evening. Exhibition of a Treasonable Spirit A few days since the Portland organ ol Jeff. Davis spoke of Yallaudiugham in the highest terms of praise, and expressed much joy at uis return. That is all natural enough. Uu: what did it say of Geuerifl Gram? Hear it, loyal people Portland and of Maine: “Convinced, however, that exhaustion of the nation is the sole solution of the war un der Mr. Lincoln, we have expressed our sat isfaction with having Grant at the head of the army, because the most insatiate and iife sacriliciug soldier (we bad almost written mau killer) or modern limes.” Tiie above shows what the writer's feelings, wishes and hopes are in relation to rebels and traitors. Can such things be and not excite our special wonder! Gram “a most insatia ble and life-sacrificing soldier, a man-killer!” Fortunate for the slanderer that he is so far removed from the loyal soldiers who are now lighting under the noble Grant for the nation'* lift. _ Appropriate use of Rebel Lands. The "broad acre*’’ of Gen. Robt. E. Lee, the Lieut. General in the Rebel service, with his family mansion, arc situated ou the Virginia side of the Potomac, in the vicinity of Wash ington. He is lighting fur the perpetual en slavement of tbe black man, aud in view of this fact, says the Washington Republican of a lata date, a happy thought occurred to the Secretary of War, which it gives us pleasure to record. Fir»t. Ho ordered CoL Uukkne to organ ize tbe Freeduicii’s Village, for the protection of the black man and his family, upon the Ar lington estate, belonging to tbe rebel General Lire. That village is a success. Second. He baa himself recently selected a site, upon the same estate, for a national cem etery, for the burial of loyal soldiers who die in Yirgiuia from wounds iutlicted by Lee's or ders l Gen. Meios has becu directed to supervise the laying out of the grounds. Canada. Our neighbors over the line are, just now, somewhat excited in relation to some very important constitutional changes in their gov ernment. Tbe ministry have obtained the support of George Iirown, a leader of the re form pirty,bvthe promise of a measure for the general federation of the provinces. If the scheme fur a general federation fails, the principle is to he applied to Canada alone. There is a little touch of a war of racss, and the remedy for tnis, in the opinion of many far-seeing statesmen, is to be found only in a general federation, somewhat upon tbe princi ples of aur Government. There is evidently much feeling upon the subject in all the provinces, and w hat the result may be time will show. Queen Victoria’s American do minion is broad enough for several large states. Temperance Journal-Change of Editors. Mr. U. F. Thorndike, in the last number of the Temperance Journal, takes leave of ita readers having resigned his connection as pub lisher. That paper is hereafter to be published by Messrs. Rich & White, enterprising and earnest young meu, who will, we have r,o doubt, infuse new life Into the paper, adding materially to it* iulereat aud circulation. The Journal has had a hard fortune, but we hope it may yet meet with success commensurate, somewhat, witli the Importance of the cause it advocates. Mr. Thorndike has labored as siduously to promote the causo with which he has becu identified, and he retires from tbs chair editorial, with the good wishes of ths fraternity. “Gay and Festive.”—Tuesday last, says the Lewiston Journal,mo young men—New begin aud Hill—bucks front .Saco, arrived in this city caparisoned in the tip of tbe mode, accompanied by “their wives.” They had hired teams in Saco for an hour , on Sunday evening, and went to 1’orlland.

Horrible Case of Poisoniug at Ithaca. A YOCNO WOMAN Slt'RDEHF.D BY HER MOTH ER. The citiacns ol ltbacs, New York, have been horrified at the death of Miss Charlotte L. Ileggie, on Wednesday, the 15th instant, by poisoning. She had been engaged at sew ing by the Ladies’ Aid Society in that village, when she was attacked with vomiting, burn ing at the stomach and other pain'ul symp toms. Medical aid was rendered, but without success. Site obtained no relief; and after lingering eight days was finally relieved by death. She was the oldest daughter of Mr. J. M. Heggie,of Tthaca, and was greatly esteem ed. A sister , about eighteen years of age, died in November last, exhibiting similar symp toms, her death giving rise to suspicions of poisoning; but no Investigation was made. This time, one of the physicians communicat ed the facta to the District Attorney of Tomp kins county and a Coroner’s jury was summon ed. Suspicious were excited against the moth er and many circumstaucea brought to light the fact that she murdered her daughter! From mauy witnesseait waa proved that this unnatural mother had a strange and unfortun ate disposition against her family, and some suppose she is really a monomaniac. She has been arrested. The jury brought in two ver dicts, nine jurors declaring that the daughter was poisoned by her mother, and three addiug that the unhappy woman is insane on the sub ject of her family relations. jyTbe Biitish government has directed the stoppage of works on the Capitol buildings at Ottawa, Canada, until the termination of the war. tPICIAL NOTICES.
