By U'egiaph I adviict) you of hs aciou af the Conn ill, as far aa it had transpired, 3r he?n mads declsiv*, leaving the admission of Loui-iana Catholic* still under discussion. If I am cerree'lr nlvtrtsed In the matter, two Old*?, claiming the National ^ounoil for their pa ternity ex'st in that btat?, the one admitting American Catholics *l>o abjure tbe conflaes'onal, and the other re pudiating all connection with tie devotees of that reli gion. Tbe firit ia the mor* nuwrous body, with a Ca tholic for iti State Prvetdnnt and one or two Catholics ia the lift of ill national deb-cates; the latter, with non* but Piotestants in ita mentDerabi? and national dalega tion.

W Qen settled, aa it ?must be in a day or two, it will be disco rersd that the ^American w.riare has b en agiiost tbe politics of that hurch, rathtr than ita rengmm dogmas; and that tUo unning crVtinisB of the pnes'.hoBd, rather than ths Ireligioas i?dth of tbe memoaraolp, has erected the prln |cipal harrier to a recognition ot thein ai Integral parts this great American morsaisnt. "To cannot serve |God and mammon" has been written; and the papular mpression now is that allegiance to a foreign potentate who claims secular as well as spiritual power, ia utterly Incompatible with republicanism a? taught by the aires of '76, and praotised since those cays.

AFTERNOON 8KSSION. TILT BBTWKKZf COL. BOLUNQ, Or VIROINIA, AXD SENATOR WILSON, or XA8SICHU8IRS. On the re assembling of the Grand Council, Ool. Bollino, of Va., Mid in substance that he did not want members to play the hide and axle game amy longer. He wanted to know where men stood. He had in Virginia stood up for the oredit of the Northern mem bers of the American party, and had said that they wftuld be true to the constitution; and then the lie had been given to him and his assertions by the election of 8eward, and then by the election of Henry Wilson and bis subsequent conduct. The Cilonel wanted Northern men to ftce the mneic, and let the Southern men under stand ecai ten. The Colonel said if th? North ehould fol low the leadership of Wilson, that the Soath would go la for separation. The Colonel made some very interesting statements to the Council, to show that there was no danger to the country from negroes or from slavery. He Mid that seventy eight years ago there were thrse mil lion! of whites and two millions of blacks. Where will the negroes be seventy-eight years hence, If the increase is in proportion? He said that the strongest pro. slavery nan must be satisfied that the negroea would te lost. There woold be none left. Hinbt WIL805, of Mass., defined his position. He loved the whole human race. He believed, in the sight of Sod, that nlfgers and white peopte were en the same i flat footing, and he wanted it to be eo on earth. He hid no wish to abolish slavery In the States, but he was quite anxious to do it m the District of Columbia, and to keep slavery oat of Kansas and all the Territories. He spoke for an hour on the Maiiachusetta anti-slavery platform, and your reporter was unable to write out his notes to send by this mall; but the issue is made, and it has to be met. There in so shirking out while the South is represented by such men as Col. Boiling, ef Virginia, and Mr. White, of Missouri. Rsyner seems to have lost caste with th? Southern delegates. They sse thU in his anxiety to cnake capital, (with the forlorn hope that he will be the candidate of the Council for the Presidency,) with Nor thern members, he will jeopardise the interests of the Bouth. The consummate vanity of Banner, in suppos ing that be has the remotest chtnoe of being the njmi nee for th? Presidency, ii ri Healed by all hts8out.h?rn colleagues. No whig will get the nomination for the Presidency, and bo man, of any party, who has ever held office. Ibis te a solemn and settled conviction in the mind of every eound and Sam member of the present National Council. KTKNINQ BKBSION. The Council adjourned at 8 P. M., after Wilson's anti ^Blavery harangue of an hour. He holds his ground, and ?ks yet there hay been no manifesto on in the sortr to re. ject hiss end his gang. Perhaps the test of aaembership in the natieaal organization will be applied In the plat | form. Nice question There w.U b? the devil to pay be fore th? Council gets through. Tbo l"?s of Virginia sug gests the r.?'ce??ity of bo.rliug on to the North, and aa tie downright rejection of ^Vilaon & C* may lose the North in a ?liTer?ion to the Be ?ard coalition Ton will see tliat the case required del rate ateeriar to avoid the breakers. 1 think Wileon desires a apitt 11a seemed to be drag' ging liia cost tbroug'a the Convention. thla afarnoon, and asking tjouthern members to tread on the tail of it. I ook out. ? The Louisiana Catholic delegates, though '? natives and to tne minor born," an-' disclaiming anything like civil allegiance to lb? Pope, will, of course, have to ba ejected Some of the Southerners say tbat a bitch o' Northern men have a platform cut and dried, involving tha res toration of th? Miatouri comprint**, and that K?nneth Rayner ia rear.y to go it in behalf of tut South Ken neth is very accommodating. The name of George Law here is a tower of strength. The fact tbat he wa* once an oxtler. and fond of crackers end cheese, takes well; the fact ?ha*. he has been a stone mason prove" that he i9 as soun'1 a< a brick. These are the things, they isy, for the people? a self- mads man, working hia way up from a stable to a palace in the Fifth avenu?, and mo-e money than be knows what to do with, and a generous, whole aouled, practical man at that. Terbaps before the adjournment of this b?dy there may be something done indicating its preferences. If so, I am very much mistaken If George Law dooa not turn up the Brat choice of tbe Council There are men here who think that even if they fail in any other com promise, a jonction of all sections may be made upon Live Oak George. There is Borne disposition among the knowing ones to extend the area of tbe Order by including a limited class of naturalised foreigners, say all arriving in this coun try under ten years of age. Doubtless something will be done to li'ieralize tbe present stringent rules of th? Order, for the good and sufficient reason of'getting more votes A little more rope of this aort would have car ried Virginia perhaps. The great difficulty is, that this Council ia tbe titrangeat admixture of incongruities you ever saw. lacking the essential elements of tact and ex perience to a r*ciarkable degree. All want to be leaders, and very few appear to be qualified for the task. They aie all aware of tbe dangers which surround them, yet few have the courage to strike out boldly for tbe land. The only thing which I hold 10 tie perfectly elear con cerning this convention is, fr"m present appearances, tbat a very decided majority of its members are in favor of George Law for ' he White House. Aa for Gen. Sam Houston, he is nowhere. Even the Texas delegates are looking eife where for their man. We have bad aa ox siting afternoon, inaida and out, to-day, and to-morrow we abail perhaps bave it atill lntter and heavier. I tbink it is not unlikely that the convention will hold cn mora than two or three weaks longer, on account of the high prices of breaiatufTs and provisions . Philadelphia, Jane 7, 1355. Mr. Rayner'i Course in the Convention ? Character of the Debates? Gov. Gardner. Senator (Vihon ani Judge Gamble? Arrival of Delegates?" Live Oak" Stock on the Rise, <fc., d-e. I regret the unenviable and unmerited position whloh one of your "special" despatches Manned to the Hon K. Ray nor, of North Carolina. The most undeserved in jualtce? -unintentionally 1 hope? has been awarded that distinguished gentleman. "Active and busy" 'tis true he has been during the whole progress of the Conven tion; but not for himself, aa those best versed In hi 4 an tecedents and present movements on well attest, but for the general cause in which he has embarked the un bonght energies of a most vigorous intellect and a pari patriotism. Rayner is not a selfish man, and his self sacrificing, lofty, and magnanimous bearing, con pled with abilities ?? tw? highest order, hive erected for him in the hearts of the American fraternity a mom into more enduiing than the mere ephemeral applaise which zeeults frcm place ani position, elevated though it be to the dignity of the Vice President of the United 8tates. If he were so to aspire, the suffrages of the American people, in telliog thousands, would be de clared from every mountain top and valley, and in tones of fullest confidence and affection. The American Catholic question, introduced by Louis iana* elicited a debate of great power and eloquenoe Wilson, ef Massachusetts, Bulling, of Virginia, Pike of Arkansas, and other master spirits, were tie prominent actor*, and 'tis believed, for strength and potency of ar gument, graceful diction, biting sarcasm ani genuine wit and humor, has been seldom surpassed, if ever equalled, in the deliberations of the Order, I regret my inability to farnuh tbe outline even. Gov, Gardner ani his crtleague, Ciry, are emlaeitly nationalists. The Governor is decidedly a man of mark, and will at the right tiVne and in the right place make a prominent figure in the convention. All eyes are here turned towards h''m with the fullest confidence and respect, and his national action in Massachusetts will be abundantly confirmed by his conservative and pat riotic course heie. His colleague, Wilson, who freely enunciates hie ?'Union" sentiments here, I would that I could endorse for the tame frankness and honesty? but the truth interdicts, and I must continue to write him "arch disturber" and "pseudo negro philanthro pist." Other and many men of distinction are here, and among tliem, and not the lee?>t one by any means, is Judge Gamble of Missouri, a pro'ound jurist and a lawyer of very great abilities. But as I have neither the space nor the leisure to specify to any fuller extent, I dismiss the tueme with the general remark, that every State and Territory, in the person o( some one or more delegates, has just cause to be proud of its representa tion. The pressure from outside is hourly beooming more dense, and as every train arrives new asd prominent faces are recognized In the crowd I discern A. Stevens andB. Clark, member of Oongrets from Westchester, N. 7., and hosts of others from every section. The hotels are all crowded and overflowing, and the most generous cheer isbe'Dg dispensed in ail directions George Law is gaining ground in the affection of mem bers from distant States every moment. Men who came here disposed to favor Fillmore see that his chances are hopeless. A new man Is the order of the day. No old party hack, whose political frlenls are known and condemred. The delegates are satisfied that Fillmore, if nominated, would lose New York and Pein Sylvania, and the Amerioan paity cannot afford that. A Northern democrat will he se ected for President, aad a whig from the SouMi for the Vice Presidency. L*w will be the next Preslcent, for the leading Know No things say th?t if Law is notnioated, the democratic party will not make a nomination: and this is pretty ge nerally believed here If Law is nominated for the Presi dency, Kenneth Radnor, of whom I have spoken eo justly, will probably be tlie nominee or the American party fcr the Vice Presidency, although Crittenden, of Kentucky, and Gentry, of Tennessee, are talked about by many members. Taken altogether, this American convocation has been an exceed ugly pleating one. and the entire absence ef all cliqulsm snd the free interchange of sentiment and opii-ion ? marked by the pervading unanimity to na tionalize and fraternize the whole American people upon the basis of the Constitution and the Unian ? must constitute a new era in the drvelopsment, strength aad fraternity of the organization. Til IBP DAT. THK LOUISIANA CATHOLIC* RI T.KD OPT? THE CALIFORXI \ MS PUTS ADJl'HTKO? AIL PRSIJMTNARISS ARHABOFD CTC. The Convention met at ll o'clock A. M to day. After a most animated debate of eeveiai hours duration, eli citing tbe finest forensic display that ever graced or die tiagnished the deliberations of the national Americans in grand eounell assembled, it was decided, by an over whelming majority, to exclude or rather not to intro duce, the American Catholic delegation Into the national rssemblage. The oaee of tbe " Simon Puree" from Louisiana, la thus freed from all embarrassments: and although not so ordered, being laid on the table for future action, that representation will unquestionably be admitted. The California disputants and oon estants have made a grand entree, and the race promises te be an exciting one. There exists what are termed in that State the regulars and the wigwams? both contending for autho rity, both having sent the same set of leiegates, apor tion belonging to each order The Grand Couneil have admitted the delegates, but re ;>gnised only the regulars At 2 P M the Convention adjourned to attend the grand baaq ut at Saaaom* street Hall at 4 V.

The tiitd toa-t, "Religious liberty," was responded to by C. Anlrewt, of New York. To the fourth toast, Mr. Ridgway, of the Richmond Whig, rpfponJeJ briefly, and, apologizing, called on Mr. Prentice, of the loubville Journal, but he was not pre sent. His name was receive'' with loud chetrs. JcnsoK Crank, of Virginia, then spoke at length, chief ly on the Virginia e'.eotion. Alter be had concluded, thi President called on the States, alphabetically, for epeechos.

Barnuua got excited and mads reveral speeches to the crowd, ndviaing the people to corns to morrow. 1 loMde thing* were about the same as before. The children, perhaps, looked a little more wilted than the t iay before, and they were bored, pulled, and pinched to df ath by their irreverent and unmannerly visiters.

Some of our country friends have not read chesterfield yet. We give a lit of the premiums awarded, thus far. It 1 ceems to be the opinion of various unprejudiced persons male and female, that the first premium was not award ed to the finest child in the exhibition. From a cursory inspection, we are inclined to the belief that there were several children much finer It seems absurd to allow a boy of five year* to ccmpete with babies of one year. The second premium was decided bv lot between two cimpetltors. Thb mother of the ?50 prize animal had five children before; she is thirty years old, while her husband is sixty.

From this subject the first deduction is, that parents are responsible <or tbe moral, physical and mental con ditions of their chileren Second, that tne laws of deve and hereditary descent are fixed, and that per fection in children is tbe result, in proportion a* parents are qualified and comply with the laws or growth: that physical and mental stamina depends on ths right ob servance ot tbe laws of ciatetics, of respiration, nutri tion, exercise ;Fthat as everybody says that the mother is the prime mover in exerting influence in tbe early years of childhood, therefore woman's education should be more thorough and scientific, that it should embrace at least a com ct knowledge of the law* ot life.

There is ,iome doubt in regard to the renewal of the conference at Vienna, according to the following inter pellation in the House of Commons on the 25th ult. Mr. Eouil'CX sai l ? I wish to ssk the First Lord of the Treasury a question. There is a report current out of doors tbat tie con erencs at Vienna have been renewed; 1 with to know wbvthvr government has received any information to that eifectV i.ord 1'^i.mkbston ? No conference ha* been held since the last recorded in tbe papers, and before any fresh conferences can be held ber Mojesty's minister at Vienna must receive authority from here to attend tbrm. (laughter ) Mi. M. Gibson? Top noble lord's answer to the honor able member for Sheffield Jwas not understood here (Laughter.) The noble lord stated a few days slnoe that the conferences were not finally clo ed.only suspenled, at d that Lord Westmoreland retained full powers (Hesr, bear.) I wish to know therefore from the noble lord whether those powers have been withdrawn, and If to. wbenf Loid PjUMwrkton? The powers bare not been with drawn Ltrd Westmoreland still possesses then, but it is one thing 1o possess powers and another to exercise tbem in eircunetancei not considered favorable by the government at home. (I?ud laughter ) Tbe Paris Conslitutionnrl, of the 24th ult., gives the following as the last (not the present ) proposition of Auttrla respecting tbe third point:? 1. The hlph contracting Powers Aonvicned of the impu tation, for the tnaint<nanse of the reneral balance of power, of sarins the Sullinie I'urta united i? the advantage of the union established by the law of nations betwro'n the dinar en> European States. declare that they oonaider it for the future as forming an integral part of tho union Tnay an gle*. each of them, toresroet that indapendenco and terri torial integrity of the Ottoman Empire, and they alio guarantee the strict execution of any engagements entered into 2. 1 he regulations for the closing of the Straits of the Bospbrrus and the Dnrdincltfs, as set forth in tha treaty ofthe 13th of July, shall remain in force, with the excep tions hereafter mentioned 3. Each of the eontrsMing parties whloh have no es tab i Intent in the black Sea shall bo authorised by a fir man tt the tuitou to fiirates Share t In the ovont or the Sultan being threatened by any ag cresslor, be reserves te himself the ri:ht of opening the straits to all tb<> naval forces of hts allies. ft In the ?vent of the naval forces or Russia la tha ttlsoV Sea veirg increased hat end what they were ia 1H53. tha Sul tan shall authorize such of tbe contracting parti is aa have not establishments in the Uluck Sea to arm in that sea a number of vessels equal to tha half of the augmentation of th Russian naval force*. Hitherto (says the Constitutionnel ) the views of Prus sia coinc deo with those of the cabinet of Vienna: but the q nest Ion of the ranis belli, remai* ed on whioh the cabinet of Merlin did not for the moment lite to enter into liny positive engagements. Au-tria romoved this difficulty by making, in a private note a formal engage. ncert to declare war on Russia if the latter, in increas irg her naval forces in the Illack Sea, shoald exceed the statu s quo of MM. M. Prouyn <le l'H'iys before leaving Vienna changed tbe wording of the casus belli in this sense, that Austria (should bind herself to make war on Fu' mh, even if the latter should re-eatahlish her fleet on the strength it possessed in 1853. Austria consented to this w or. log, which implied the douule limitation of the naval forces of Rtisiia, both as regards the legal principle and the nnmber. A Copenhagen correspondent of the Londoa JYews, writing on May 20th, says: ? The Amcricsn bark Jupiter, Watson, from New Or leans to Cron&tadt, which arrived here some time ago, but wai prevented from proceeding to her port ef destl r at ii d, at brst by the ice and tben by the appearance of tbe flying squadron, sailed yesterday for Memel She bas nominally a cargo ef cotton aboard, but there is good reafcn to Mitre that beneath the cotton is stoived aw.ty a large quantity of ammunition and arms, amongst whvh are taid to he v<> less than 12,000 revolvers.

At the late meeting of the members of the Royal Literary Fund of Entland, held in London, "Tbe Litera ture and Science of the United States" was proposed, and tbe toast acknowledged by Mr Buchanan, the Ame rican Minister. Mr. Buchanan dilated on tbe prospeet ef Fnglisb literature, with which that of his own coun try was identical, having, in the cou se of a century, oae hundred millions of readers between the Atlantic end tbe Pacific Oceans, and asserted that it would be the endeavor of the literary men of America to surpass those of the old country.

W Below we give lh* account of the calamity, froro"thepen of her commaa4er , who appears to have acted wiih great coolness and de cision under the critical circumstances in which he wan placed. The cause of the fire will, ot course, never ha known. The ship first loaded at New York for San Franeiaoo in Desembar last, and started in January, when ah# struck on the bar. She then returned and diaohargod ber cargo, which has been eitimated at $300,000, among which was a quantity of oilcloths. Had she gona aa without striking, in January, ahs would, in all probabi lity, have reached ber destination in safety, bnt aa har cargo lay some time in store and was than re-shlppod, and of course restowed, it i.i conjecture d that the fra quent removals may have tended to spontaneous coaa buct'on ecpf cially with sucb goods at oil oloths. The Northern Kagle, which first tcok tbe whole of the craw, was bound to Australia, and retained a fair proportion, ten, when the passed tbe others on board the Dutch van. eel; and six appearx, a fair quota, to have been received by tbe ahip Revere for Liverpool. Capt. CobVa angor aetms vo be justly raised against tbe conduct of tho matter of ihe Prince Regent, when he refused to receive even a Niggle clstresafd seaman, excepting as apaiaengar. In very happy coutra-t to such conduet aa this, ia that of Uagelholf, who ev noed from first to laat Use true characteristics of a noble seaman When lan-ed at Plymouth, the oaptain and hia crew were effectually aided by Mr Kohert Whi'e Stevens, tho agent for the Shipwrecked Mariners' taooietf there, hi free pat sea over the railway to Liverpool.

The state of the public finances, the principal event of the day, is atill equivocal, if not par-lyied. la order to cover the deficit in the revenue of the present year of 1866, the Minister of Finance has presented to th* Par liamentary Commission of Eatimatea tluee proposi tions:? 1. To impose a tax upon oil, bread, meat, and other articles of the Brat neceaaity. 2 To aell the scrip of the new emission for what it will fetch in tlie market. * 8. To make up a forced loan of tlO, 000,000, granting an inteiest of 8 per cent , to be paid off with the pro ceeds of the sab of the church property released frees moitmain. The conunlasion refused the first, as being equivalent to the restoration of the auppreaaed gate and provision taxes; the second, because it womld put into the market a (rent quantity of p?p*r, and wenM necessarily diminish the value of government stocks is regards the third, it la much doubted whether the Oasa mlasien will acced! to It, for it is argued that ptsttta g thia loan npon those periona only who pay a tax *t IU or $60 and upwards, is encouraging socialist prinoiptsa and contrary to the principle of equality in taxa tion. The mediations of the Commission, and their opposition to tbe-e measures, will probably reanlt in the retirement of this Ministsr, and as the charge ia becoming very burdensome to him in truth he will be glad if it should be naceeaai? for him to leave a post which In reality he cannot fill, an* espec'al'y if he should leave it aa favoring the poorer elapses, which wou.d pe:mit him to regain a little of the popalailty which be has lost 411 these queationa wiM be decided on in the coning week.
