The dal'gate* from tbe Southern and Middle Sta'ea art prepared to unite upon a national plat'orm of constitutional pr-noi ples, the o'arery qaeetto* an the oenatltution Icavei it, aid tuning oat WU?on, the seditions ?Wili#o dlr?|Mii*-r, and bia set from Maaaasbusetts. Peek, of tbe Nm kidovy and bla associates from Maine, and, (a abort, all the fiahiBed abiUtioa coalitionists of tin New Kenand State*. Toej are a'l to be cut alrlft. On thiir constitution ?1 Uataa plat'orm, the a?* great Ditioitl American organization will go into th? aumnu and fall State elcctiena, with a fair enanse of oarrying Nev Ytrk, Nf* Jeriey, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennasrse, and with soma prospect of irak'rg a g<~cd inpituiao even anotf th? hotbed* of ha aboliliealnti Tae r?j?ct?4 membera of the But v? 1\ doubtleoa fall back upon Ha ward 'a aaM-alavecy p?(ra*. and go to ?*rk for a general sectional aatt rfarwy ticSet. We may tbua expect in '68 to hws three broadly defined par'i?* in tiaa field, to wit 1. "The new National American part/. 2. The Drnaoeratle p?rty. 3. The general Northern Anti slavery Coalitioa. To come to particular': Among the New York urn, Earlier aud CI! man are rtvali for tbe office of Srwi Pre sident of thia projected national organization. Barker will probably te re elected, nnl Ullman will bars to wait the ehancea of another nom nation for Governar, or nonethiog else. Among the cele<ate* in favor of eipall i<>g Wilson and nil tbat a?t, there are a number, par ticularly from the (-oath, In favor of Fillmore for th-sir Presidential candidate; but I think that there ia a larger nnmber in favnr of George I aw. Thia Com -ii, however, will not decide upon the President al candidate, but upon the platform for '56. Ther* will be tiaa* enough for the candidate a year hence. Kenneth Kay nor. of North Caroiiaa, ia vary busy and very ambitioua. Ho napirea to tbe White House nomi nation; but he will be doing exceeding!/ well if he can get the sominatteu for V<ce President. The delegate* from the Northwestern states? Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Wianonain, especially? lay that aa one half the voters thtre are naturalizid citiztns, there must be tome pruning of our existing Enow Nothing impediments against that class, in order to make any headway in that quarter. They any, too, that the vote of the great West la too important to be neglected. So it is. Judicious men, therefore, think that there is a chance that the national Know Nothing platform may be liberalized to something like the principles laid down la Lire Oa* Georg?'s cele brated and asgasiou* letter to the Pennsylvania Legisla ture. Nou* Verroiu At all areata, the business before thia Convention, and tha issues and organization depending before It, are of the highest moment, and out of it you may look for the classification and arrangement rf this and all other parties for the grand campaign for the next Presidency. FIRST DAY? PK0DK1DIN08 AND OPINIONS. Philadelphia, Jan* 5, 1855. The Grand National Counofl of the Amtiicui conveMd at 10 o'clock this morning, at the Assembly Roema, oorcer ot Tenth ud Cheanat streets. New Ycrk, Massaohusett*, Mans, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New Jersty, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tenneieee Louisiana, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa. Wisconala, Cali fornia, Kentucky, Diatrict of Colambla, Missouri and Michigan, hay# cent their fall quota. On the question of the Presidency of the Convention, great unanimity pervade* the member*. No reasonable doubt exists, whatever, of the n election of Jam** W, Barber. The entire South and Weet, a* well a* th* Mid die State*, are fuMy satisfied of hi* nationality, aad wil give him a hearty and gen* row aupport New England alone aeem* diapoeed to head th* opposition to him? a1: least a portion of it? and on the ground of hi* opposition to their peculiar sectionalisms, asserting their preference for a Southern man with Southern sentiments to a Northern man with Southern sentiments. Their oppo sition, however, will avail bat little. Bat one sentiment seems to pervade the mind* of the member* generally, aid that is, that the great American party cannot bo otherwise than a national p*rty, and that the period ha* arrived for th* full, opes and erpHsit declaration of the principle* by which it is guid?d and governed. This de claration, rely apon it, will auuredly be made during the session. The Convention has some exciting questions to adju dicate?not the lsast ot which will be the action neces sary to be taken with the " higher law" and other ex tremist* who may preaeat themselves for membership; but a* to th* i*sue, no reasoaab** doubt can exist. From the general tone and temper exhibited to-day, faction tats and disnnionists of all grades will be made to walk the plank in short order, and the assemblage made wholly end entirely national and conservative. The attendance, as I said before, was full aad impos ing, presenting the general tout ensemble of a moat re* ?pectable, digniflea and intellectual body. As Its pro ceeding* are strictly secret, U is quite a difficult mat ter to get access to inch details aa will interest the public mind, or give a clue to the propoaed action of the body la reference to the vexed sectional issues of th* day. It seems to be conceded, however, that the salvation of the cause depends wholly upon the body taking the most dee'ded national ground, and in such a shape as t?> preclude t>* possibility even, of aay misua 'erstsndiog This appears to be the fixed purpose of the large majori ty; and I spprehtnd no special pleadings? no matter how plausible soever? win divert it from this paramount ob ject aad duty. The decree has gone forth, aad the work is already more thaa half accomplished. It will, doubt less, givs rise to th* most animated discaasloas, and wil1 elicit much of the heated party strife iacideat to the overthrow of a faction aad it* cherished fanatical pur poses. Wilson, of Massachusetts aad his trained cohort*, are here, ready, 'tis presumed, to battl* to the death for "negrodom" and all it* concomitaat monstrosities; but the " sober sense" of the national* 1* wld* awak* to th* interests, of th* can**, aad will don )tl**a administer such a deserved rebuke a* will consign the '*arch aglta tator" aad tbe"peendo negro philanthropist" to th* tender mercies of hi* morbid instincts, aad to som* mor* oongeniat a>**mbl*gs, where all distinction* of "oolon race aad eaate" merge Into the more desirable one of a black skin and a woolly head, and where he may serve as head "Cuffee" to the whole geaa* or "thleklip*," flat roses aad curly heads, the residue of hi* brief politi cal existence. In r*fsr*aee to the action of the Council this morning, th* whole session, It Is understood, was occupied la the discussion of the mode prrper to ho pur*u*d la th* psr maaent organlsat'oa of the Hon**? in other word*, wh* thsr th* Hon** or th* Chair should appoint th* com mitt** on credentials: th* Chair htvlag referred the question directly to the body for adjndioatiaa. By a very decisive vote, after a lengthened debate, the ap pointmeat was gtvan to th* Chair, aad It I* stated that th* committee appolated by him is eminently national aad ooaaervatlve.

Since writing the above I have mat one of the attache* to the Hkkald, whose mlaaioa, I opine, in founded under the misapprehension that the Council, attar ita organ!, za+ion, ia to ait with open doora. Such an Idea, I ven ture the opinion, haa not a single apologist in the body. The veil of secresy. in so far at least as ita legislation ia concerted, has not and wQl not be removed. Why, 't a rumored, and upon good authority, too, at that, that a re so uti m waa passed to-day interdicting even the commu nication of its actaand doings with the membera outside of the general assemblage. If this be the fact, and of it there reems to be no question, mere reporters, aa Bucb, of course, could not have admiaaion. It was never the design, nor has such a proposition ever had a sup. porter in the order that I ever heard of, to throw open the door of its modut operandi to the public. The pur pose limply ia to make known the political principles of the party, and nothing more. I will remark, en pauant , that the America us of this city, headed by Mayor Conrad, propose to give, on Thurs day evening, a grand banquet to the Grand Council. In addition to the many good things which a moat bounti ful market supplies, the programme proposes to have additionally any quantity of good speaking. Four gene ral topica to be elaborated by the prominent orator selected for the oecasion have been designated, and are arranged, it ia raid, as follows:? 1. Tos Union. ? On thia them* the Hon. Kenneth Ray nor, of Ncrlh Carolina, a man of very decided abilities and a fine orator, ia to harangue. 2. Nation amiy ?Albert Pike, of Arkaniaa, a mighty man in the South ? a poet, a scholar, a philosopher, a leaf er of Southern commercial eonveationa ? la to figure on thia th< me, and he will do It well. 8. Thk Pbshl ? Morton MeMuihae', of thia city, ia the chesen advocate. Of him I cannot speak of any persona knowledge, but he ia said to be a man of mark aa well as of ink. 4. Bkligious Libkrty. ? This prolific theme ia to be handled by Andrews, of New York, a chaste, logical and beautiful speaker, Bealdt* these leaders, a aentiment in honor of each State will be proposed and responded to appropriately by the prominent a. embers of the Council, each speaker te ball from the State proposed. SECOND DAT. Philadelphia, Job* 6, 1855. The Convention assembled at 10 this morning. The Credential Committee mads a partial report, which, being received, the case of Ohio, which had no', recognised or acted upon the "Union," or "third degree," came up for adjndioation. Upon the delegation pro (ferine take the degree; (which was administered,) and givi ig satisfactory pledgee to the Convention, they were ad mitted and qualified. The State of Mleeiaslppi was next considered. It ap pears that tie regular Order had no legal existsooe in that State; but that, nnder the name of "The Stars and Stripes," some thirty thousand natives had enrolled themselves and appointed a delegation to this body. Being discovered to be of the right stripe, the whole Or der was recognised and the delegation admitted, bat not, however, without a severe contest ? the nntl elavery interests opposing, aid the nationals advo cating their admlesion. The vote was a decisive one, nine than three to one voting <? the affirmative. Stick a pin there. Among the nationals, I learn that Lyon of your State, a man of fine promise, and one destined to All a higher poeitlob in public life, distinguished himself by hi* able advocacy of nat'onal wntlments and opinions. The de bate generally, It Is stated, was characterized by much mind and earnastnets. The State of I.ouitiana was then brought before the Council. It is affirmed that two sets of delegates are in attendance, one representing a mixed constituency of Catholics and Pro testes tn. the delegation being oemposed in pert of Catholics ; the other, a simon pure' Protestant constituency, represented by anti-Catboties. The dispo sition?' thin Etate will probably oceupy the remainder ol the day's session.

The front was covered with huge tianrpsreseles In ths pre-Adamlte ?chcol of art (1. e. chaos), & line of fltgs was ran across Broadway to the Aster Hdum, all the banners were hung upon the out ward walls, and the cry wai still the quarter, ocms.from early morn to dewy eve. To look at tbe crowd in front of the Museum, in Broadway, and even clow up to the doors of St Paul'# church, one would think that the contents of half a dc?a country towns had suddenly been showered down upon that spot. There were fathers of families leparated from their broods, calling wildly for William Francis Augustus or Henry Clay Jones, youths who were franti cally otn*eh*ng the legs of bachelors, or wiping thtir digits, covered with the debris of saccharine com pounds, npoa the light spring silks of city belles mothers torn by ruthless omnlbuMS aid stupid pollae men from the arms of their devoted offspring-young 'nuns with their bonests smashed and their genera errsagements very much discomposed? strong minded spinster*, who punched people with their fans and rspped naughty boys with their parasols-pickpockets wbo could not operate (the people in the rural districts xesd the Hhuid now)? verdaat y -uths from the eouu try?

At twelve o'clock the ruth was so great that a new ?sit to the street was opened, and thera ws? an Imme. diate disposition on the part of the public to make It an entrance. To prevent this, a stubby looking policeman was here stationed, and, a. utual, was rather more in the way than anything else. He paternally advised us not to go to the show-?lt warn't," In his opinion, "no kind of use ," and he kept up a running Are of remarks of the same character for the bsnefit of the young women wbo were struggling for a chance to see Bar num'x babies. Here we step aside for a moment to ptj a deserved compliment to Da Folic, who had the fate "apposite to Mat Peter," ud handed the ladles out. With the po liteness of a Chesterfield, with the gallantry of a Ro chester, he passed them out, bat, at the eame time, with the virtue of a Joseph and the austere dignity of a Brutus, he re'uied to pass any of th?m in One lady pressed bias hard. She was pratty; she was persevering: ?he knew that "ao" did not always mean a nagativs. "I hare," said she "com* a long wsy from the eoun try and must see the babies." <<You cannot, madam," said the Sir Charles Grandison of the Museum; "this is the way ont; we have sold no ticket! for the past boor; the house is fall, packed, like Taunton herrings in a Bingham barrel " That would nr*t do for our fair tritnd. ' But I teach." said she, "and 1 don't get out ?cry often; I must go In. " Du Solle was softened. lie rent up the ease on an ap peal, to Greeawoed. We think that Greenwood let her is.

Tho unhappy Infant set mod to be suffering under paralysis of the arns, and its position was rathor angular than othsr wute. It was, ws wore told, loaned to Mr. Baraum for ths show. If we were Mr. Barnun ws should feel oblige! to the owaer if bo would " take that girl away" at once.
