It will be ready, iu and out ot wrappers, at twu c nts per copy, at halt' past three o'clock precisely The Oemocrwtlc Xouliiatlont at LuU-Slugalar Denouement In Baltimore. The city was astounded yesterday afternoon, on the arrival of the Railroad train from Philadelphia, with intelligence from Baltimore, that the regular Democratic Convention had unanimously nominated James K. Polk, of Tennessee for President, and Silas Whioht, juii of New York, for Vice President The complete und final defeat of Vail Buren and Cast, lias u most amusing and ex cruciating effect on the nervous system of the democracy. The details of this interesting denouement, with the intelligence down to the latest hour on Wednesday evening, will be found annexed. So at last Mr. Van Buren, the statesman, the politician, the "great magician," the man who walked so steadily in his " predecessor's lootsteps" lias at last got off the track, and is finally consigned to the philosophic shades of Lmdenwald, on the banks of the beautiful Hudson, tor the remainder ot his natural life. This is a blow quite unexpected to his friends; but on looking calmly back on the last sixteen years, many will exclaim that it is what he had reason to expect. In the year 1823, Mr. Van Buren was the "masterspirit," who entered into n movement that defeated the succession of Mr. Calhoun, after the first term of General Jackson. During the last three years Mr. Calhoun has relumed the complement, and has been the unseen power which conducted the movement that has defeated Mr Van Bureu's last and fondest hopes. With the help of" Tyler and Texas," this has been in a great degree effected?yet not altogether. Mr Van Buren might have weathered the storm, but for the false lights held out by the Evening Pott "* s clique of this city, whose, opinions on the Texas question he supposed to he the opinions of the democracy. Mr. Van Buren, in some measure, has been destroyed by his own friends?he has fallen a victim to the ignorance and atTogance of his conHdential advisers. Of the nomination of Mr. Polk we hardly know how to speak seriously. A inore ridiculous, contemptible and forlorn candidate, was never put for? by any party. He has neither the vigor, respectability nor the elements of any reputation, even half so much as Captain Tylet and all the family, including the cracked head of old Wat Tyler. Mr. Polk is a sort of fourth or rather fortieth-rate lawyer and small politician in Tennessee, who by accident was once Fpenker of the House of Representatives. He was rejected even by his own state as governor?and now he comes forward as candidate of the great democracy of the United States. Oh ! what a ridiculous^uo/e. Captain Tyler, with the patronage of government in his hands, and the " spoils" " Warm, reeking, rich," can get more democratic votes in New York, than Mr. Polk can, or ever will do. The singular result of all these laughable doings of the democracy in Baltimore, will he the elec tion ot Henry CUy, by a larger majority than ever wus received by Jackson or Harrison. With Polk and Tyler in the field to divide the democracy, who,were they rolled into one person,would hardly make a man, Mr. Clay must get the State of New York with perfect ease. The same state of democratic disorganization will lead to the same results , m otherStateg. The presidential election may be said to be decided as soon as it opens. The democracy will be scattered to the tour winds of heaven among i their several candidates, and Clay will have only 1 to xoalk over the rourtc. The succession will soon become again the knotty point among politicians. ! We already see Daniel Webster in the field for the ) whig mantle in 1S4H, and John C. Calhoun for the democratic?all the other candidates of the latter ' camp have been disposed of in the general mcl(e in Baltimore. We annex the third and last day's business down to the latest hour POSTSCRIPT. BALTIMORE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS. FOR PRESIDENT, JAMES K.

Mr. Hickmsis, a delegate from Pennsylvania, expressed similar sentiments, but went turther, and said he was sorry to see that Pennsylvania had already violated her pledge.

(Great laughter.) He held in his pocket a lettert Irom General Ca*?, instructing him to withdraw his name fiom the Convention whenever he considered that any discord would be created by its continuance. He therefore withdrew the name of General Cass lrotn the Convention, and wished to correct the lMt vote ol that State which was cast for him, by giving thea to James K.Polk, of Tennessee. (Such roaring as lollowv^ this wua rarely ever heard 111 aay public assemblage ) Illinois was next' called, when Mr Knox rose and sai# I ha u us Irom a north western State, but he could not kce| cool on such an occasion us Ihis. Thut State was the gilt of Virginia to tha nation, and they should do as Virginia had done, and cast their entire nine votes for Judge Polk of Tennessee.

Mr. Bancroft, for Massachusetts, said that there was a mistake (laughter) about the vote ol that State. He de sired to correct it hy giving in a plumper for Polk, of Tennessee (Koars and cheers, and three cheers for the historian of the United States.) The delegates from Vermont, New Jersey and Maine then all ' corrected" (laughter) their votes, by giving them unanimously for Polk, of Tennessee.

(Cheers.) Mr Pickens got the floor, near the Piesident, ami responded to the cull by saying, that he was not a regrlar delegate to this Convention, nut he could pledge his State to support (Jovernor Polk, and pledge the Convention that he should receive the vote of South Carolina. ((Jreat and enthusiastic cheering, waving ol hats, handkerchiefs and umbrellas.) Mr. Kllmohk, of South Carolina, lormerly a member ol Congress, was called, and concurred in the views of his colleague, although he could not vote as he was not an authorized delegate to the Convention. His speech was received with great applause Delaware then gave heruuanimoiia vote for Polk. Lieut. Governor Dickinson of New York got the floor and said, that that lone blank vote from " sw York like the lone star ol Texaa, wished to l>e united to lot union, and he therefore was authorized to cast the whole 36 votes of New York lor I'olkof Tennessee. Governor Coi.guit of Georgia rose, and cast nine votes from titut State for Polk, and said one of his colleagues would vote for himself. Mr. Black, from Georgia got the floor, and replied to the speech ol Col. Young, made at the early part of the session, in which he denounced Calhoun as the Nero of thu " mongrel administration.''

The result of the nomination was here announced ahaving heen sunt to Washington, and an answer received in three minutes, stating the gratification they received at the nomination of Polk, ami tendering them three cheers for his nomination, which were given by the convention. Tennessee then returned thanks for the nomination, ami the Convention then adjourned till 4 o'clock in the afternoon. C Baltimore, Thursday, May 30, 7 o'clock. I told you that as soon as the Convention met yesterday at 4 P. M. Mr. Walker, of Miss., rose and said it became their duty to nominate a Vice President, and hi knew none so worthy lor that ottice as Silas Wriiimt, of New York. New York had made a great sacrifice for the party by withdrawing Van Buren, and he then eulogised Mr. Wright in the highest manner. Ho hoped Silas Wright would he carried by acclamation. Several Voices.?It can't he done. Mr. Nuttai., ol Ky. said he would withdraw Col. Johnson and go all ll'riglit (Laughter) He'd rather haven man that had smelt gunpowder ; that had been in any kind of a fight ; even in a tut tight ; but still I'd go anything to put down this ringed, stringed, striped and speckled whig gery. (Laughter.) Butler, of N. Y ?Silas Wright, sir, is a Green Momi nun Dtiy miu a goon nne snot (Cheers.) Nuttau? Then he's the right kind of lioy for us (Cheers.) If he's a good shot he can carry Kentucky, for the wliigs can shoot no where but at their own miserable selves, in duels. (Laughter) Mr. Imii?.rsoi.i., of Conn , said lie was sorry to give up Johnson, but he went Wright lor tho sake of harmony. Mr. Dromuoolk rose and seconded most cordially, in be half of Virginia, the name of Silas Wright; a State that bus never given a voteto a federul whig for President In all family matters a small jarring and a few quarrels only made the members of it love each other better after the storm was over. (Iloars of laughter.) So now he. hoped they would hereafter leave oft' fighting oneinnother, and turn to and give the whigs a sound thrashing. (Cheers) The voting then took place as I told you yesterday,anil resulted Far Silas Wright 2f>H Woodbury, H Mr. Finis of New Vork returned tnanks lor Mr. Wright, and added that he ha.i lately seen him, and his last words U/lirh fhuf lililwnlll/l lint jllnut Kic numn r* tin II?1"I '' e any circumstances; still ho had no doubt that Mr. tVrignt would serve.

With regard to the recent ittacks that had appeared in the " (Untie" against the t'alloun men, the Cass men and so forth, they would make imple atonement lor the same, and make everything all Wright for the future. A resolution in tavor of the ont-trrm principle was rr'rrrtd. A motion was carried to draft an address to the people >f the United States,embodying the views of the party,and o publish it in German A committee of five w."s appointed to inform Messrs Wright und Polk of their nominations. Also a committee if 1H to prepare a set of resolutions.

When the meeting got fixed, the President reai something which we supposed to be very good, a: all cheered with a hearty good will; and he hat scarcely touched his seat, when up popped at leas twenty heads, white, red, yellow, and black?al had something to say?all were overflowing witl enthusiasm ana long speeches?all didn't want no thing, were true patriots, had fought and bled anc died in the eaime unH would Ho it "Oh gentlemen, I beg of you to be a little quie^ ?one at a time?one at n time, gentle' men?Smith!

We wani Smith, of Ohio?not John Smith?and Smith, ol Ohio, did come "like a cataract"?"like a thun der-bolt"?"like Niagara"?no coon for him?m fox for him?he went for Texas and the peoples' choice?for honest John, who, we muBt say, lost none of the laurels placed in the keeping of Smith, whose name is too well-known to the public to require mention at our hands?his arms swung like pump-handles?his head bobbed about like a Chinese mandarin?his coat tails stood ut right-angle? with his uumentionables, and his hair was flying about, first on one side, then on the other, and seemed trying to dance a jig.upon his odd looking, queer shaped cranium. He was interrupted with question?Tasistro?move the question?down in Iront?go it?hats off? I move?that man is no delegate, and has no right here?What do you mean, sir T?Show your credentials. This is my credentials (shaking a cane at his opponent) for such men as you?Mr. President, I call upon you to?I wish you would'nt spit in my hat again?1 call upon you to?Oh, shut up?1 would offer, gentlemen, the following :?

Ha, ha, ha !?nonsense?gHg? humbug?oh deal! ?ha, ha, ha ! gentlemen, I insist upon your coming to order, and going into nomination. The dignity of the chair must be sustained. Bless my heart! we forgot to say the meeting was opened with a prayer by theiltev. Mr. Tyson, or Tyler,(perhaps a cousin of Bob's), who, having the floor, followed up his prayer wi h a good Tyler speech. We were listening attentively to his prayer without knowing he had got through, when he sung out^ " Hurrah for Tyler!?hurrah for honest John! The gentleman is out of order?no, h" lias the floor?hasn't he got through with his prayer yet?order, gentle men, order?didn't like such proceedings?hop< the speaker wouldn't he interrupted?think it uncourteous, and calculated to bring discredit upon the cause, iVc. <fcc. After him came Smith and Derry, and Eddy and Firk, of Virgi nia, and many others, great and small, who who did speak, or would have spoken, had time and patience permitted. Some few were foi mnking overtures to the Van Buren Convention ti centre upon a third candidate, ami thus create unity in the party. But the inajoiity were foi honest John, neck or nothing, sink or swim, sur vive or perish. So John Tyler is nominated foi Presidency by the Tyler party. Four o'clock in the afternoon was the hour to which the Van Buren Convention had adjourned their meeting, when they again assembled. Nothing had been done, and nothing was likely to be done. Several ol the States were strongly and positively opposed t? the nomination of M. Van Buren?Virginia am Pennsylvania would not listen to the mention ol his name as their candidate They would majei no compromise. So the meeting was compelled to again adjourn without the prospect ot their milliner ul,? -I...,.1,1 tl... I for the first Hay'a work?now for the first night The leelinga on both sides were stronger than either party had anticipated. Tyler and Van Buren was the general cry, us one candidate was preferred to the other.

At it they went like bull dogs?Smith for Tyler, and Butler for Vail Buren. Smith having the strongest lungs, most gas, best cause, and hearty backers, drew off the Van Burenites, who Hocked to Smith, where they could hear the most humbug, und lefi poor Butler spouting away to the Battle Monument ['hen came tfie tug of war, when the Van Bureniteiand Tylerites got wellhudaled together.

Then came a sudden rush from some quarter, which threatened a disturbance, and caused the most of tliern with ourselves to disperse, and return to our homes. The Tyler delegation met again at!) o'clock on Tuesday 26th,for the purpose of nominating a Vice President. Nothing done. They wish to learn who is lo be the Van Buren candidate, belote they make their nomination. Wednesday morning, 7 o'clock.?it ia uaeless to wait for the nomination of the Van Buren convention. Nothing hh yet hue been done. Van BuTen's strongest Irieuds acknowledge there is no chance for his nomination, aa he is every hour loaing " ground, and the probability is, that those pledged to go tor Van Buren, will hnd it necessary to court null their respective Stales in relation to having the obligation removed, or return to their homes without making a nomination.

Nor any thing else. A little before three o'clock, the firing of a piece of artillery attracted some forty or fifty boys, and about as many full grown J idlers, to the Park, where might be seen an indii vidual close to the gun, in u great state of exsiter menr, having in his hand a dirty piece ol white rag of about 18 inches square, attached to a stick, on e which was painted the words, "Polk and Wright." ' Several inquiries were made as to the meaning of 11 this affair, and an Irishman observed that he was t sure they were only polking their fun at the people by such a nomination, and that it wub not " (w)right. Another observed that it might be all * (w)right just now, but that the democrats would i find it all wrong next November. After some 20 > guns had been fired, instead of 100, as had been , announced, the fellow with the grand flag moun? ted the gun, and called for three cheers for Polk I and Wright, which was responded to by about 20 | boys. The gua and Hag were then marched ofl'the j ground, the former at the hindcrpart of a cart, and . the other in the hands of the standard bearer, acI companied by four or five others, and followed by j some twenty or thirty boys. They marched into Tammany Hall, but did not remain there long, > when they adjourned to Tammany Hall, Junior, " where a very spiried discussion was carried on relative to the nomination, but there being some ten or a dozen speakers at a time, it was impossi uie iu rrjjori inc specuueb uruvcreu ai una liupur tant meeting, and bo ended this grand democratic demonstration.

Kin pi re Line, in Broadway, at the corner of 8th street, on Tuesday evening lust, and remained in until said omnibus passed Grand street. Olio of the Pslmer line of stages came up with No. 13 at 8th street, and attempted to puss it. Both stages commenced racing, and continued without intermission until they arrived below Grand street, where Palmer's succeeded in getting ahead. During this raco the speed of the horses must have been near ten miles per hour. Those of No. 13 repeatedly broke into a regular gallop Directly below Grand the two stages warn uhreast and other carriages were passing either way at the time. The driver* of the two omnibuses urged their horses recklessly forward, and No. 1-1 struck the carriage of Mrs. Coarsen, ia which were besides herself, a nurse with a child, and a driver. The driver was thrown into the street, and th<4other*(in the'scarriage escaped with most imminent danger. The complainant is a Mr. J. 8 Gibbon* of the Bank of the Slate of New York. The frequent injuries sustained hy the public in conscuuuuce or the conduct of tho*?jcabmeu, calls loudly fur tlie interposition of the authorities) and this flagrant outrage will doubtless meet with a sifting investigation The Mayor and Common Council are looked up to with much confidence hy the public, who claim pretention for tho lives ot citizens in the great thoroughfares of the oity, where pedestrians canno, with safety venture to cruse the public streets. Ommrhiis.?An investigation is going on befere his Honer, the Mayor on a charge preferred against Messrs.

A change was made in the route, by which they are allowed to run dewn Broadway to Kulton Kerry instead of through Broadway to South Kerry. It appeared that the licetiRes. prepared in the ex-Mayor's office, were not signed by the late Mayor, and the investigation, involving a question of law, hua been postponed.

The warrant was issued to exact a fine of $4, whiah had been determined upon by a court martini, against Collier, se a fine for uon attendance at drill. The ex Mayor (Morris) appeared for the plaintiff, and addressed the court, dwelling upon the harshness and oppression pursued on the part ot the defendant, in making an excessive levy, under color of law, to satisfy a fine of $4, and commenting on the fact of such levy being made on property that did not belong to the party against whom the warrant was Issued. Mr. Morris, after dwelling upon the law under an execution, contradistinguished from that which givea pewar to seize on property to satisfy a fine under a military warrant, took occasion to point out the cautious scrutiny which was usually observed in levying on and fixing ownerships on property. His Honor charged, and after impressing on the minds of the jury the necessity on the part of the militia of up. holding the military institutions of the country, by observing punctuality in their discipline ; still if the jurv were satis Auil as to the facts o f the case, that the property did not belong to Collier, and if they considered that the manner in which the defendant had executed tha warrant whs oppressive and insulting, they were beund to give such damages as would compensate the plaintiff1 for tha injury.
