TH I*? , What* No. (i'40, WHIG NATIONAL CONVENTION. NOMINATION OK MAJ. GEN. ZACHARY TAYLOR FOR THE PRESIDENCY, AND or lyCXLXcARD FXX.LMO&S TOR TUB Vice Presidenoy of the United States. EVENING) SESSION OF THE SECOND DAT. Philadelphia, June 8, 1848. The Convention re-assembled at four o'clock, but the public and the reporters for the press were excluded until six. We were informed tnat, in secret session, a motion was made to reconsider the vote by which delegatus from Louisiana were given the privilege to lapresent Texas. The motion was voted down by 30 or 40 majority. In the neighborhood of the Hall the , incessant hammering of the i'rosident was heard, indicating that there was not the most perfect order in the convention above. The venders of iee creams, sugars, and turtle soup, on the sidewalks, reaped a rich harvest. Politicians were assembled in little 11 parties, discussing the claims of the several dlstinIguishcd gentlemen spoken of for the Presidency. The I greatest excitement prevailed, and a general anxiety I was manifested to gain admission to the hall. I '1 he long expected hour, six, now arrived; the doors | were thrown open, and "such a gitting up stairs you I never did sec." Many a poor fellow will not recover from the bruises he received in the rush fur maay a day. |1 Some of tlio outsiders were disappointed. There were I I at least two thousand in tho street, whose prospects for a place in the galleries were hopeless. When we squeezed in, there was a resolution under cuusiueraiiuu, viz.;? Resnlved, that the Convention trill, at fifteen minute* put i-ix u'olock. prmiiHid to the choice of candidates for the offices of President ana Vie* President of the United States,in the fallowing manner, viz.:? The authorized delegates fnm each Stats shall vote tntiit voce for n eandldate fnrtlieotfloc of President, in theic places; provided that no delegation shall cast a greater number of vote than one for each Representative and Sana tor to which sash state is entitled In Congress; and if, upon comparing the result of the vote of all the delegations as aforesaid, it shall appear that no person shill have received a majority of the whole number of votes given, the Convention shall proceed to a second vote in the same luauncr, and so on until n majority shall declare for some one of the persons VO ed for. Resolved, That when a candidate for the office of President shall lie thus chosen, the Convention will proceed iu like manner to lite choice of a candidate for the ofllcsof Vice President. A gentleman from Ohio (Mr. Campbell) had moved to amend?'' that no candidate shall be entitled to receive the nomination of this Convention for President or Vice President, unless he has given assurances that lie will abide by and support the nomination; that if nominated, he will accept the nomination; that he will consider hint*eif the candidate of the whigs. and use all proper Influence to bring Into practical operation the principles and measures of the whig party. Wo fouud. ou entering, upon the floor, Mr. lltRLr.s. who was saying the President has decided that the amendment offered by tho gentleman from Ohio is not in order. The resolution does not say what persons shall be voted for. (Great confusion.) Now, I put it to house to decide whether the auieudment is not proper of Itself. Is there any gentleman on this floor who wants to nominate a person who is not a whig ? ( ' No," " no ") Is any in in iu favor of nominating a candidate who is not in favor of whig principles ? (" No," ' no," " never.") lines any man wish to nominate an individual who says that he does not belong to the whig party ? ( Who says so .'") 1 named no candidate. Does any oue want to send a man here who is Tylerlxed ? ("No.") No sir Give us a man who is a whig, who will stand by wuig principles, and pledge himself to carry out every whig prineiplo (" That's the sort.") I want n mun who will show by his works that he is a whig. Mr. Haskell and another gentlemen from Tennessee, rose at the same time. Both began to speak. Tin- Psesident?The gentleman from Tennosseo has the floor. Mr. Haskell?Which one? The President?The gentleman nearest the chair. LETTING OFF STEAM. Mr. Haskell?I trope that the decision of the chair will Ihi sustained, aud that the Convention will proceed as fast as possible, to vote for a candidate for President and Vico President of tho United States. The u iiioimI mors f nf t V?r? (vontloitian frnm Hltln if nut. nf nr. dor m? pay. but In no offensive sense. the amendraont of the gentleman la au insult. (Hisses-g-s-t. and loud cries of " No," " no.") I have said that I do not moan the remark as an insult. Why ? That resolution declares that this Convention will nominate nobody but a whig. Is anybody here who thinks that any person but a whig will be nominated ? Standing I here as the whig representative of a whig district, 1 have a right to uomiuate anybody I please, even though he be a democrat. [Strong manifestations of displeasure. Cries of No. you have'nt." and hisses 1 While I contend that 1 would not do so foolish a tiling, nobody is obliged to vote for such an absurdity. Sir. it is too late to inquire into the qualifications or politics of a man to be submitted to this Convention. The gentleman who offered the resolution desires that the candidate who may be nominated shall use his influence to promote his own election. I do not understand that this is requisite or proper. (A voice, 'Move to lay upon the table ") This is a free country, and we are a free people, and have the freedom of speech and thaught, and the hallot box is the greatest guaranty under our glorious institutions. We have a right to vote for whom we please, and vote for any person who is a froeborn citizen of tile United States. Let each particular section of this Union nominate a man. Let us vote for the man of our choico. If we are worsted, let us do as the Western man did when he got into a conflict with a bear : just grin and bear it! (Ila ! ha ! and applause ) I have now let off a great portion of steam which I wished to explode. I hope the Convention will sustain the decision of the Chair ; let some member move to lay the resolution on the table, and then let the Convention nominate Clay. Taylor. Scott, or some other good citizsn of the United States.? ( Good." ''agreed." and clapping of hands.) Mr. of Vapont. spoke from an experience of many years in Compress. lis said that the question was not whether the resolution should bo adopted. It was simply a question of order. Mr. tirvTRT arose amid the general confusion. "Mr. President," The President called to order ; and "order," "order," "quostion," "question," resounded through the hall. Mr. G\.vtrv ?1 rise?(getting high up on a beach.) A delegate contested the right of Mr. Gentry to the floor. Half a dozen gentlemen in different parts of the ball were standing on tho settees, bawling out " Mr. President'' " Mr President." There was a buzzing of voicos and rails to order, and, altogether, a scene of great confusion. Mr. OzsT?r?I rise to sustain the Chair. TKn PoeieneuT ? T rtrao lr lmrtflkl ? Thrt rro n t Inmn r? will proceed. a oross anm jtnitt. Nr. Oewtrt?I riso to sustain the dlReiRlon of the ? hair, which I think conform* to the parliamentary nsagc. The Chair ha* decided that the ronolution of the gentleman from Ohio leout of order, because it ie not germain to the question before the house. And what is the question beforo the Convention? It is a resolution proposing to prescribe the manner in which this Convention shall vote. The two question* aro wholly distinct and antagonlstical. What right havo the Convention to say that I, one of the representatives of the whigs of the Union, shall volo for one candidate for the Presidency, and not for another ? The peoplo. gentlemen, have commissioned you to be here, and to do their will, and unite upon cnndldotes for the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Is not that the representative doctrine? We come hero to carry their will into effect. The people nro competent to determine who are worthy to rule over them; and this question is involved in the proposition of the gentleman from Ohio. Without meaning the slightest disrespect to the geutleman from Ohio, and the gentleman from Kentucky. (Mr. Harlan.) I mnst say it is a gross absurdity. No man can prescribe for me who I shall vote for, and who shall receive a majority of votes as the candidate of the whig party of the United States. (Applause ) Cries of "question," " question," ' order," " order." skw yorr?a froteat. Mr Ft'i.i.r.n (mounting a settee)?I protest against the State of New Vork not buiDg heard.

Amotion is made to lay that on tho table. A Member, in a loud tone?The question is not understood. Mr Fi'luer (still on tho settee)?I hare tho floor The President knocked lustily, to restore order; during which time there wore cries of "question," "question."

Mr. Oe.vtry rose to a question of order. FLSOOKS RCql/IRCD. Mr. Fuller wishod to offer a resolution, which was read. vis. Kesolved As the first duty of the representatives of the whig party i? to pretcrvo the principles and integrity of tliat party, tiie claims of no oandidate for nomination can be considered by this Convention, union the candidate stands pledged lu support, in good faith, the nominee, nud to be the exponent of whig principles. Mr. OisTir rose to a privileged question. He movei^ that the Convention proceed to execute its order. The President?The resolution of the gentleman from New York is out of order. Mr. Fuller?1 appeal from the decision of the chair. I am from Now York, and I say that no candidate nominated by this Convention can receive the vote of that State, unless he come up to the platform. Oentlenion observe, how shall we say how men shall vote! The whig constituency sunt us here to nominate a whig, and to nominate nobody else who will not abide by the nomination. If we are to elect a whig, we must nominate a whig. Mr. Kimo, of Georgia, moved that the Convention now proceed to the orders of the day. Mr. Kwiivo, of Tennessee?I move to lay the appeal of the gentleman from New York on the table. A Delegate?1 hope that we will now proceed to the discharge of an important duty, (the nominations.) Mr. Ashmcn desired to speak ; before doing so, he wished to have the resolution of Mr. Fuller read. The Secretary read the resolution. Mr AuiMtfs?I understand that the chair ruled that the resolution is out of order; that an appeal has been taken from the decision, and a motion made to lay the aDDoal upon the table. I make a reauest. The President?The motion ha* not been made. Mr. Auhmiin?Then I have the floor. [-'Go on."] I hope no ouch motion will be made to lay on the table. [" It has been made."] The chair gays it has not. [" It has. sir."] The rar.siDr.xT explained. The chair gave the floor to the gentleman from Tennessee. But he kept moving and moving, so that I did not know him from the other gentleman. [Ha ! ha !] Mr. Ashmitx?Then the question is as though the motion had not beon made. 1 did not ihtend to make a speech. [ Go on."] The President?I desire to know whether the gentleman from Tennessee moved that the appeal be laid upon the table ? The Member from Tennessoe made a reply. The President?1 desire to know whether the gentleman made that motion. The Member?I did intend to make it, at all events. ("Ha. ha!" "Good!") Mr. Ash mux?It the gentleman did make it? The Member?I did. Mr. Ashmuw?I appeal to the gentleman to withdraw it. The resolution declares only that the nominee must be a whig, and nothing else but a whig. Mr. Hilliard?i object to the resolution because the time has come to proceed to the voting. The President?The question of order does not seem to be understood A resolution adopted this evening. makes it the duty of the Convention to proceed to vote at a certain time. The hour has transpired, and on that ground the Chair decided the resolution to be out of order. Mr. Armmun?The ehair is right, but I appeal to my friend. I desire no test but that on which we can stand before the country. If that is voted down will the people sustain us ? ["Never, never."] Mr. Gentry?We declare him a whig by voting for him. [" Thore are no persons here but whigs."] Mr. Bedinoer. of Kentucky?The resolution asks a man to be more than a whig. 1 move to lay It on the table. ["Louder."] A Member called for the orders of the day. Mr. Jenifer, of Maryland?I have heard all parties declare their preferences. It is to nominate a whig, one who can be elected. [" That's it. that's it."] 1 wish to define the position of the whigs of Maryland, so fir as 1 can understand it. She will give a whig vote. We oare not who the nominee la. We believe no man who comes into tho Convention is not a whig. We are instructed to give our votos for Henry Clay. If Clay is out of the Convention we will give them for Zachary Taylor. The President called the gentleman to order. Mr. Jenifer?I wish to say? The President?The question is on the appeal. Mr Jenifer?I was giving a reason why tho appeal should not be sustained. The Prnsident?I am assured that the appeal has not been withdrawn. ["Yes, it is."] How deoeived we may be by our own ears ! ["True," ha ! ha !] Mr. Jenifer made another romark. During all this time, tho Convention was in confusion?so much so. that A Df.lf.oate remarked. "I ask gentlemen wbotberthey cannot act with better feeling in a whig convention . I believe such a scene has never been presonted. cither in State or National Conventions. ["It beats tho loco-foco Convention, at Baltimore, all hollow." Ha ! ha!] The President, (to the delegate.)?However much we may approve of the gentleman's remarks, ho is wandering from the question. A Delegate, (emerging from a crowd)?Let u* drop the whole matter, and have a free interchange of opinion. If (present a candidate to this Convention. I will state that that individual is governed by the wishes of his friends. Another delegate rose to a point of order. The President?It has nothing to do with the appeal. We can't get along, unless gentlemon confine themselves to the subject. Mr. Bkdi.nger?I move that the appeal be laid upon the table. The question was put, and the motion was agreed to. A motion was made at twenty minutes to seven o'clock, to adjourn until to morrow at nine o'clock; but it was not agreed to. the nominations?the struggle. There was new ne business before the Convention, save that of proceeding to nominate and vote. This stirred up the members to a very high state of oxcltement. Several boys, with long torches, touehed up the gas. and suddenly a flood of light burst upon the scene. A hundred members were on their legs Mr. L. H. Camfhell, of Ohio, sung out. in a loud tone. "I nominate General Wlnfleld Scntt. and 1 say? [knock, knock, great confusion! I make a pledge to the Convention that he is a whig, [knock, knock, "order''] and if elected he will carry out whig principles.? ["Good."] The President?Thegentleman may submit a name, but he cannot make a speech. Mr. Camfrell?I don't intend to mako a speech.? [ Order."] A member in the crowd cried out, "General Zachary Taylor." Mr. Court, of New Hampshire?I nominate Daniel Webster. [No applause.] Mr. Defrees, of Indiana, nominated John McLean, of Ohio. Gov. Kent, of Maine.?I nominate General Zachary Taylor. (Hurrah! hurrah! hurrah ! and hisses to quell the confusion.) Mr. Blunt, of New York?In behalf of the whigs of the Union, I nominate Henry Clay. (Hnrrah ! hur rah ! hurra-ara-h ! Clapping of hands, hisses, and cries of "order," order.'") The President began to rap. and continued to do no for at least two minutes. The excitement was now at its height. As soon as he knocked a hole in the noise, ho said: " It is with deep regret that we witness such scenes. I saw what it would be when the gentleman from Ohio commenced. We came here to transact our business, in" Mr. Wale*, of Delaware?I nominate John M. Clayton. Mr. Gallowat, of Ohio, stated that he had a letter from Judge McLean, authorising him, in a certain condition of things, to withdraw his name ; that condition of things now existed, and he accordingly withdrew the Judge, with a reservation that in a different state of things, ho would again nominate him. tiik fosition or (1eneral taylor.

The Convention gave him leave to read alelter, but not an extract from a newspaper. ( We have all read the lotter.") An appeal was taken from the decision of the Chair, and the appeal laid upon the table. Mr. Galloway got down from the stand, and wended his way to his seat.

The yeas and nays were called, but not ordered, and on taking a rising vote, The President decided that the Convention had adjourned. All the members were on their feet, and the people in the galleries began to rush out. It was disputed that the Convention had agreed to adjourn. "Division !" ' Division of the question !'' " Count, count !' " A new count "> " Sit down !" " Count!" " We haven't adjourned!" " We have I" ' Yeas and nays !" The rnr.?inr*t rapped with his hammer, and with all hi* might.

Quarter r*?r Eleven o'clock. While the secretaries were counting up the result, a sound of aheers came up from the outside, and the people In the galleries took up the echo, and repeated the rounds of applause. Order being in a measure restored. the President announced that General Zachary Taylor, having received a majority of all the votes given, is declared to be the nominco of this Convention for President of the U nited States. Tho shouts from the people in the galleries and the people outside were seoonded by the Convention, and nearly all hands joined in the shouts of laughter and emphatic acclamations Colonel Webb smiled all over, like the full moon, and his shouts were ably seoonded by Mr. Fuller, of tie Nrio York Mirror; Mr. Greeley, on the other hand, sat at the reporter's table, gloomy as despair, and Colonel Fowler, of New York. was near us, looking also ' "Grand, gloomy, and peculiar." Motion to adjourn to four o'clock. Our friends from Now Vork desire to consult, to mako the nomination unanimous (Cheers.) Adjourn to four o'clock.? ( No," '-no." " no," " no.") Mr. T. Butler Kino?(Hap, rap. rap)? us have a recess of two hours. ("No,'1 "no," "no;" "let New Vork be heard ") Various motions to adjourn and for a recess were proposed. and all ruled out of order, the ''onvention having decided to proceed to ballot for a nominee for Vice President. g Mr. Collier, of New Vork, was permitted to speak. He had come Into this Convention as to a meeting of the whigs of the Union. He had done his utmost to de-feat tho nomination of General Taylor. Me believed he was acting upon the sentiments of the whigs of the State of New York. But the nomination having been made, it should meet with no opposition. He hoped the Convention would finish its work with the utmost harmony He had two strong objections to General Taylor, but he submitted cheerfully to the decision of the Convention. (Cheers.) No deliberation was necessary for the further action of the Convention. There could not be a better opportunity, lie had fears of the nomination, but he hopod that he should be deceived in his apprehensions. He hoped they would proceed to the nomination of a Vice President. and as an earnest of his good feeling he would propose as a candidate for Vice President the Hon. Mil lard Fillmore, of Now York. (Cheers) Mr. Cannon,, of New York, would make no speech. The Convention bad spoken. He hoped the Convention would proceed to the nomination of a candidate for Vice President, and that the nominations would be supported unanimously; and that wo should meet our friends in Independence Square, this afternoon, to ratify the nominations. (Cheering* in the gallery ) Motion to adionrn. Not carried. Mr. Duras. of South Carolina, said that, to the last, he had voted for Henry Clay. He did it because his vote would not affect the result, while it would permit him to indulge in the luxury of friendship Ho would cheerfully support the nomination of the Convention. (Cheers.) A KICK t,'P. Mr. Alics (of Mass.) desired to be heard; but was not heard for some minutes by this reporter. Massachusetts would not support the proceedings of this Convention. He expressed what he felt to be the sentiment of the State, and he could not consent to the unanimous vote of this Convention. (S-ss-s.) Tho South was again triumphant. (S-ss-ss-ss-s.) They are to have tho executive power for four years longer. The rights of the free States had been trampled upon in this Convention, by every vote of the South. (Hisses, " order " Order !" " Oo on!" " Oo on!" "No!" "No!" "Down!" "He is not in order.'!) Of all the distinguished names in the Dree North, not not one man had received a vote South of Mason and Dixon. The bond of union between the North and the South is broken. The free States can no longer submit. It hat hem decreed hy the Whin National Convention, that the u-ht/; party i t thii day dittolved. (Hissing and applause ) He 'had struggled to preserve its unity, but now. under tho Providence of Ood. it may be as well that here we should separate. Here our paths lie in different directions. Tne free State of Massachusetts will despise the miserable boon of the Vice President. Let me here say that it will notdo?that she will scorn the bribe. (Hisses below?mingled hisses and applause in the galleries. Cries of "Choate. Choate. Choate, Choate." The chair rapped and called to order. Pl.KDOK* cai.LBD FOS.

Several motions to adjourn were made, one by Mr EwiDg. of Tennessee, for an hour, in order to give do. legates an opportunity for consultation; but they were all disagreed to. It was announced that Rufus ( hoate, of Massachusetts, had been compelled to leave the Convention, and Seth Sprague's name was entered in the place of that of Mr f hoate. Mr. Patterson proceeded to say, that the opinions of Mr. Seward differed somewhat from the whigs of the United Statrs; and, after a point of order was raised and disposed of. he withdrew the name of Mr. Seward John Sergeant, Hamilton Fish, and Thomas Butler King were nominated for the Vice Presidency. A raemher ft?m Ohio asked leave to withdraw the name of Thomas Kwing, and said that that State asked 110 sugnr-plums.

I deny the right of the gentleman to get up here and characterize the proceedings of this Convention as improper. The President?'Tho gentleman has a right to proceed in order.

We have nominated a man who said, that he would not withdraw his name for (day, or for anybody, and gentlemen ask us to support him. I have always voted the whig ticket. I ask nothing more than to have a good government. If any whig, from any section, had been nominated. I should have felt bound to abide by the nomination. I go home, and, so help me God, I will do all I can to defeat that nomination. [Applause, hisses, and hurrahs.] Mr. Brows, of Pa.?1 rise to a question of order. There was much confusion. We could hear not a single word said by Mr. W11.son. who was standing upon a settoe, waving his hands, and making a speech. Mr. Brown moved that the Convention adjourn until half-past throe o'clock. Tho motion was disagreed to. Tho orders of the day were again called for. Mr. Lunt, of Massachusetts?I think that I have preserved my calmness, while others have been excited. 1 alone, of tho Massachusetts delegation, have choson to aid in the nomination,and I will sustain it here and elsewhere. [ ' Good, good."] My oolleague (Mr. Wilson) speaks almost entirely for himself. It is not true that the nomination of Gen. Taylor will be received in Massachusetts with disapprobation. It is an imputation on the State, whioh has always adhered to whig principles. a voice from ohio. Mr. Gallows*?Will you hear me? (,lYes, yes.") The President?The house will come to order. Mr Galloway said that he was a whig, an ultra-whig; he had been a whig in storm and sunshine, and he could say here that lie never scratched a whig ticket. He could not say what he would do in relation to the nomination. He must first go home, and hear what his constituents had to say. He came to the Convention under pledges, to vote for him only who was opposed to the extension of slave territory. There are doubts in Ohio of the whiggery ef General Taylor. He quoted a long piece of poetry, telling what he would not do, concluding with the lines: ' All around, above, below. By our indignant answer, -No.' " Judge Woodbridge, of Massachusetts, was nominated for the Vice Presidency. A Member from Massachusetts suid that Massachusetts spurned a bribe. She did not consider the nomination of Abbot Lawrence a* a bribe ofTered to them He merely wished to say in reply to his colleague, that the nomination of Mr. Lawronce is no bribe, and that 1 he will receive the vote of Massachusetts.

Mr. SiiKKMit, of Ohio, under the present c*citement. appealed that the resolution be laid on the ta ble. It could not be unanimously adopted. It would lead to a division, which m:ght be carried home, and that would Inevitably oust the whig party the State of Ohio. Let us ratify at Independence square. The resolution was withdrawn. Mr. Jenifer, of Maryland, responded on behalf of his State to the nominations. Mr. Tii.iien, of Ohio, offered a resolution declaring the principle of the Wilmot proviso in regard to free territory now in the Union, or which may hereafter be acquired; and spoke in its support. Mr. Brown, of Pennsylvania, said he was astonished that a resolution of this character was introdueed into this Convention. There is an evident determination to disturb its harmony. We have listened with patience to these things; but they may go so far that patience ceases to be a virtue. We declare for wnlg principles, and wc are asked by a sot of factlonlsts to do whatf (Kissing all over the Convention.) 1 movo to lay the resolution on the table. The resolution was laid upon the table. A motion was made to adjourn, but It did not prevail. Mr. Hathaway offered a resolution thanking the committee of arrangements for having provided the ac j oommodations for the Convention; and also to the elticens of Philadelphia, for their polite and friendly attentions while sojourning In their beautiful city.

A resolution was adopted, authorising the President of the Convention to notify the candidates of tbolnv nomination, and to receive their replies. A vote was passed, thanking the ministers of the Gospel for having opened the Convention with prayer. voice* FROM OHIO. Mr. Coi.i.ier Raid that ho was from Ohio; he had a brother who came from a State where the Governor once paid fifty cents for mending a pair of breochoi. (Laughter.) Ho wished Pennsylvania to pledge herself to give the vote for old Zack Taylor. Not to look oneway and row another. After the battle ef BuenaVista. the people of the Buckeye State could have, by acclamation, have elected Taylor President and his white charger Vice President. (Hurrah !) He made some other remarks, which elicited much mirth and applause, and in conclusion Riid that he would- goj home, take o(T his coat, and do battle for General Taylor. (Hurrah, hurrah ) Another member from Ohio pledged himself and the whigs of his district and his State to the support of General Taylor; and his remarks were received with applause. 4 Vticr. FROM VIRlllWIA. Mr. Jawnev had voted for Clay, but ho had another duty to perform : to carry out the results of this Convention. A gentleman from Massachusetts held up his arm this morning to help him in defeating the nominations: but he would pray to heaven to help him to thwart the efforts of the gentleman. I Applause.) Mr. Janney camn from a district which has never boen. darkened for a day or an hour by the wing of modern or progressive democracy. (Applause.) a voice FROM COMVKCTICI'T. Mr. BAncocn oamo from Connecticut to vote for Mr. Clay, but another leader has been selected, to use his' own language, to arrest the downward oareer of the country. He earnestly believed that Connecticut will sustain tho nominees of the Convention. A VOIC F FROM ALARAMA. Mr. Lanodon regretted that he could not say as much for Alabama as the gentleman has for Connecticut. The whigs have fought against fearful odds there and have arisen to be a respectable party, causing their I opponents to respect them. He came to vote for Henry Clay, and if the balloting had continued until the first Monday in November, he would have voted for him, for Henry Clay is his beau ideal of a statesman, lie will go for the nominees, and tug at the oar in bo' half of the principles of the whig party. [He was frequently interrupted by applause.] A VOICE FROM IWDIANa. A gentleman from Indiana, Mr. Ewiwo, expressed his belief that that State will heartily respond to the ventiou. A veiCE FROM TEVWESIF.F.. Mr. Hemrv said that they of the West knew General Taylor to be a whig, and had confidence in his good" sense, even when sound asleep. I Laughter]. If the whigs act as he did at tho battle of Buena Vista, the vletory will be theirs, for he whipped twenty thousand men with five. A DriRiJATE from Illinois argued, that if any man eould carry the whig flag, with triumph, in the benighted Kgypt where he live*, it wa* /achary Taylor. Mr. Kiciiardaos, of Maryland. *aid. that in hi* State the banner would be In the majority, and on the fourth of March, it would be canted to Capitol Hill. Mr. St a pp. of Indiana, said they will carry the banner for Taylor, as they did in 1840 for Hart (son. Mr. Comhad, of Louisiana, testified that Oen. Taylor was Iniown there as a true and devoted whig. He believed the General to be a* good a whig as auy gentleman In this Convention. Mr. Cowas. of Maine, asked Mr. Conrad a question, whether (Jen. Taylor wa* opposed to the protection of American Industry' Mr. i'osRAn replied, he believed he was not. Mr. Cowts inquired further, whether Taylor was opposed to the further acquisition of territory ? Mr. Cotsad said, that the information was within the reach of every gentleman Voters?'- He said so himself," "We are all satiated." Mr. Hilliaro offered a resolution to endorse the Allison letter ; but at the request of gentlemen he withdrew it. It was contended that he bad no right to do so. This wa* cut short by a motion to adjourn without day. The PsKStorsT said that he would put the question, but. before doing so. he desired to give in his adhesion to the nominees, nnd he delivered an appropriate address, and bade the Convention an affectionate farewell. and pronounced it adjourned without day. at fifteen minutes to fonr o'clock.
