Minnesota territory went with new York As also the District of Columbia and Obeso with Tho United South carried Tho majority report in committee. In the Council or. Mallory of new York thought no discussion won needed. He asked insultingly if any Man there would not or l succumb to the will of Tho majority. Gov. Gardner of muss took up Tho Gauntlet and declared that neither he nor Bis state nor a majority of the free states would Abido by the resolutions first reported. The party could not carry a Village in Massachusett upon them. Iio charged the new York delegation with Doerting the North and of even going so far in dough schism As to complain to the South that Thoy were conceding too much to the North. Gov. Gardner made a bold Earnest speech protesting against Tho resolutions of the majority. ,. The Council adjourned to 8 o clock this evening when the debate will be resumed. A Long and violent discussion is anticipated. The resolutions of Tho majority will undoubtedly pass. The minority Resolution is As follows resolved that Tho i peal of the Missouri Compromise we a an infraction of the plighted truth of the nation and that it should be restored and if efforts to that end shall fail awarded it should be at some time and if not by others it shall be by your correspondent who has been a close and careful observer of the whole Progress of the Battle. The debate waa prolonged until 11 of clock last night and an attempt of the free states entered to fix 11 to Day for closing it and taking the Vole was lost. The speech of Thomas a. Ford of Ohio yesterday afternoon has been the great Effort of Tho Debato. Kenneth Reyner said he had not heard anything like it for Many years. Or. Ford is a virginian by birth a free forcible popular stump orator. He is Tho a a coming Many of Ohio rely upon it. Those who Beard speech of yesterday will not soon forget or it. The moderate men of Tho South Hung their Heads and the Firo carers fairly Rayed at biting sarcasm and keen denunciations. He put the Rasca Lity of their course upon the repeal of Tho Missouri Compromise to them in the most pungent and effective style. A you stole our Jack knife a said he a a we caught you at it and now you wont give it to is like a Man who bought a horse on sunday and gave note Lor it then sold the animal and pocketed the Money and then turned around and repudiated payment of note because Given on the Sabbath it was illegal. You acknowledge you have had Tho consideration you admit the repeal to be unjust and an outrage and yet you refuse to right objection was made by several Southern members to the assertion that they admitted the righteousness of the repeal. A a Well then a said or. Ford a a got up and Tell us what you do think about it. Let us hear your judge Hopkins of Ala Roso and defended the repeal As that of an unconstitutional act Cunningham of s. C. Said ditto and so one or two others. A a go ahead a said or. Ford would be repo Bistod from one end of the i advocacy. But if it perceives that it in of the papers which have supported the state to Tho other the Empire state would by the course it has marked Oul Render it whig organization when it existed publish Tremp us by her service to the cause it has Reorg Nizol.

Mno re and but ally Terest is Gono in the further a other it is not for me to complain. Nor published by the democratic papers and but All interest is Gono in the further action of the convention. Nobody cared for it save As to the position it should announce of to slavery. It he been made a great Battle ground on this question and though slavery has been nominally triumphant Freedom has won the greatest moral Victory which the whole history of the controversy Between these two great elements of the Republic has recorded. Henceforth there is to be n new Era in that Tho great importance of the result of the past Twenty four hours lies not in Tho fact that they Compass the destruction of the great know nothing party the creation of a passion and a Day this is of comparatively Small account but in the More Resolute and enduring last that it has Ina Ugor ate a North and formed the rallying Point for those who would gather into one triumphant Host All in the nation who henceforth would make slavery sectional and Liberty National who would put in practice the Wise decision of the United states supreme court that a a slavery it a Mere municipal regulation limited by the verge of Tea local it remains for the correspondent of tin Trisi no to gratify Tho curiosity of the Council of dear Friend the delegates from new York and Virginia. The slavery question Sciug disposed of he has no Call for further labor in this Iio has had an interesting and to Hopes not an unprofitable season in this Vineyard.

The editor of the Temperance journal says it promises to be 14 permanent institutions in Ilia oily of Portland.

June 12, to writes in part As follows Tho opening demonstration of gov. Gardner of Massachusetts on the slavery platform yesterday evening rus quite effective. Tho slave party have quite calculated of the governor and courted with much Assiduity. The Story of Tho hotels is that they offered to run for Vico president if he would turn Back upon colleagues and follow Tho Slimy course of the new yorkers. Thoy thought that because he Rosi sied anti slavery Ultra ism at Home he would not stand up against pro slavery altruism at Philadelphia and so plied their seductions upon.

I Havo never noted and consistently with my principles i never can act with the f Ranklin Pierce which opposes the repeal of so much of the Nebraska act is opens the vast country of Kansas and Nebraska to slavery a which acquiesces in whatever the slave ii Olding oligarchy has demanded hitherto and will acquiesce in whatever it May demand hereafter. Nor can i act with any parly or any body of men who sympathize in opinion and feeling with this democratic administration party or will co operate with it or lend it Aid and Comfort thereby car thinly though it May to indirectly and unintentionally strengthening Tho slave Power in the Republic. J cannot co operate with any party or body of men Whoso action in All essential particulars must be controlled by the whig Knovs nothings of Tho South and the Silver Grey know nothings of new York. In the South More than three fourths of the old whigs including nearly All Tho leading men Havo left their former organization and joined another so that there is no whig party South. And in new boric the Patty heretofore claiming to be a straight whig is almost to a Man pro slavery and know nothing. 1 cannot act with them nor with those whose course however intended tends to their advantage and therefore to the prejudice of the Causo of Freedom i prefer to keep Tho company of such men As Seward inn de Fessenden Benson who True to the cause of humanity and Loyal to the Constitution of their country will never be diverted from the path of duty and principle by extrac ols and less important que a Lions ill timed Atil mischievous As they May consider them. Regarding Tho slavery Extension question a the leading vital controlling question of the Lime i must act with those who while thinking As i think in respect to it will by the action and organization which they propose most surely accomplish the purpose for which every Earnest and sincere opponent of the slavery propaganda will lao or. The Jcu Toul agrees w he me a a that this great consideration resisting the designs of the tyrannical slave oligarchy now overrides All the old party divisions and effete parly organizations of the country. They most Gire Way to it they already have Given Way. Men who thine Aliee Mist act toc Ether a upon this question Paramount to All others now pending the journal is in agreement with Tho free spoilers the bar Burner democrats As Well As with nine tenths of the whigs in this slate. Who should it not act with them Why done till the question it admits is first and greatest. Why should the journal oppose these men incessantly not to say bitterly even though it May disagree with them or Many of them As i doubtless do on other Aad subordinate questions. Coalitions Between men of similar views Are natural and easy and justifiable because founded on principle but Between those of opposite opinions they can hardly be other Wio than without principle or justification. Why should the journal seem to favor the pro slavery administration party in preference to what it known As the Republican organization i Tho City Board of aldermen. If it be indeed a Truo history if even the main statements be True and error exist Only in Tho details major Dow is entitled to Tho approbation of ovary Lover of Law and order in Tho country Lor action As an executive officer. To Sty for action As an executive officer the question of the Maine Law has nothing to do with the care. Neal Downs relations to that Law have nothing to do with it political antecedents and ids party connections have nothing to do with it. It is simply a question of the perform As the convention is called by men who mean to Aid the Hunker democracy in the All election it is no Mot than right that these papers should publish it. It is out of place anywhere else. So far As the authority for calling this convention is concerned the old whig Stato committee have never called Tho meeting. The Call is a no meeting or the committee a Liioi sized the Call. Several members of the old committee May have sanctioned such a proceeding but the Call purporting to be made by the whig stale committee is fraud of precisely such a character As men like the editor of the Sta e of Maine and of the Bangor journal arc capable of originating once of Ornul duty and that question is at end Tho moment it is established that there was n mob which persisted in the refusal to disperse on Legal summons and after fair warning of Tho consequences. It is set Forth in Tho document to publish that Tho mob began their attack upon Tho City Hall about Hall past eight in the evening that Tho part assailed was at first held nos eos Eion of und defended by Tho police Lono that the Uii Litney were sent for Only after it became Manifest that the police would be overpower do that Tho sheriff preceded Tho military and commanded Tho people in Tho Namo of Tho state to disperse and As Oflyn As he repeated command was Only answered by jeers and defend co that Tho mayor speedily afterwards renewed Trio command und was answered with hostile cries and showers of stones by which Many of Tho soldiers Scro badly Hurt that the com mind to disperse was again repeated with similar effects that arms Wero presented without producing any impression upon Tho mob that the soldiers unwilling to submit passively to continued violence dropped off until Only six or eight remained und that Thoy were soon marched irom the ground that Tho mob continued their attack upon Tho building until word was brought that Tho police could not hold out five minutes longer that the military Wero then marched to Tho Aid of the police and Wero saluted with missile a that the mob was again ineffectually warned and then and not till then were fired upon by Tho soldiers it being Over two hours and a half after the commencement of Tho attack by Tho mob upon Tho building and that Tho person who was killed was the ringleader of the riot. This statement pats Quito a different aspect upon the Cash from what was Given by the first representations of the Portland papers. If it be substantially True it is Woik and wrong to detract from its Force by carping and Ca villing at trifles. A mob i circe with passion is an animal which is not to be trifle with it was against that which constitutes Tho very life of government and for a to slim Tumal.

A Brief synopsis of the report to Giro from memory whereas a corrupt and Jesuit Cal band of conspirators Are in secret conclave to overthrow our liberties a.

Here you have Tho whole substance the the rest relates to the expulsion of persons which is cunningly devised time of holding meetings a. After or. Haines had finished Reading and speaking or.

The following protests of Northorn delegates Wero Laid before the convention on thursday after the majority of their signers had left Philadelphia the undersigned citizens of the United slates and residents of the states set opposite their narnia solemnly protest against the introduction of any question connected with slavery into the platform of principles of lie american party being convinced that no such issues were intended to be embraced within its purposes and objects. That we Bol a Evo in and shall defend the right of Freedom of opinion and discussion on that and every other subject not intended to be embraced with the design of our organization. That if the question of slavery is to tie passed upon and made a part of our National Creej then in that event we cannot consistently act with the Fidelity to our principles and former professions with any National organization whose apolion on the question of slavery will result in endorsing the sat Nebraska act and which refuses its Sanction to the Missouri Compromise act of 1820. That we believe that Lime Hon Rod compact was an honorable and fair adjustment of the question of slavery. We desire to Idaho this protest upon the journals of Tho Council that in no future Timo the undersigned May to charged with infraction of express or implied Faith to their fellow members in failing to support the i whatever Means be necessary it is to to Democrat a or. Ilaine thought differently quelled. Tho Astor place riot is too fresh in Tho memories of our citizens for them to weigh to a scruple Petty circumstances of such occasions or to listen with much Lavor to Thom after muttering of Boillod whatever Elso new York will tolerate it will not tolerate mob Rule against that it a Learned to be implacable and Rele Leaa. A mob in this City Rould be riddled Vii a thousand bullets should it dare to stand its ground half the time the Portland mob did after the summons to disperse. It la a great mistake to Endeavor to make capital out of disturbance either for or against the Maine Law. It is a libel Apon that class of the Community who cannot approve of a prohibitory Law. To pretend that they will either resort to or count Nanco violence against Al the very ground they Baso their opposition on is natural and constitutional Law of they understand it and their Appeal is to Justice not Force to enlightened judges and not to an infuriated Noble. With what Iago can men whose very first principle is Tho inviolability of property to taunted with encouraging mob violence which no Community can Sanction for a Day without unsettling every Security upon which property rest ? we yield to none to Ash Arronco of this Portland mob and of a ii mobs. We Rosy think the Maine liquor Law to be a bad Law but Tad Laws will never destroy our government for in the very nature of our popu Lions Thoy themselves would be i Gay peaceful legislation Long before they of uld do it. What we Havo moot to in tuesday s Issue Tho editor intimates that he would sooner go into convention with lha Al l line democracy than with these who have Felt obliged to abandon that parly on to count of its pro slavery Tenden Ciez. I Muat beg leave to say that in this respect i concur More nearly with the views of the Isle Hon. Luther Severance i Presa de in a letter which i had the Honor to receive from and which i have by a a me As follows a i Muat say that in to division of the democratic parti my sym schies Are altogether with the bar burners would much sooner coalesce with them than Erich the wild the journal thinks differently. I am sorry for it a Good cans loses in effective Lear is not bad Laws but lawlessness. When Laws Are successfully resisted by upon violence government ceases and anarchy begins let there be no altering on this subject. Let All miserable attempts to make a Martyr of Tho Man Robbins be received trill the contempt they deserve. Tho anti Maine Lew men in their struggle against it May Well say,14 not with such help not with these in regard to a Call for a whig state convention in Maine purporting to come from the whig Sute committee the Kennebec journal says As to have said above the fall purports to Homo from the slate committee but no names Are Given and we have the very Best reasons for believing that the whig Sute committee never authorized any such proceeding. Since be Call made its appearance we have conferred either personally or by letter with nearly half Thean Ltd not one of them knew that such a Call had been issued nor had they been advised of a meeting of the committee and we know that no such meeting wee held. We Are therefore warranted in denying that the Call was issued by order of the whig Sute committee. With the exception of the Sute of Maine and the Bangor journal both of which Are the Alliee of the hanker democracy none we Hud Botts wait and refer it to a commit tee. A a what is writ thar gentleman will p. M. Tuck was of or. Haines opinion. Or. Murch withdraw the latter part of motion the former was carried. Augustine Plaines esq., then said that anticipating the acceptance of the report be had caused to be copied in a Book the same is he had read and requested them to sign immediately. Does not that look suspicious Alpheus a. Man of such remarkable null actual Powers a editor and proprietor of rum and Idun Kertsm we then called for who replied in usual pathos and eloquence. Bah i lie failed not to at tack or. Cowan in Bis usual cowardly manner attempted to be witty but. Numerous other gentlemen Wero called for but none of note unless it be an Irish Catholic who spoke very Well Sod was by far the smartest speaker of the evening.
