The Ka?w Nothing Council aal the ovtiUin, as well ON belengiaff to the organization aa those unconneot with, bat reedy to join it the moment thsy see any thing to be gained thereby, are all ia con'usion and dis order. Many of these latter are old broken down politi dans of the tiro old parties, who are puzled by thia new movement, and cannot divest themselvs of their old par ty tradltioni. Others again, are new men, who are very good far meat purposes, bat who are wholly ignorant of the practical working of pol Meal organisation* on a great scale, and who are bewildered by manhlaery to whteh they are itrangeri. One thing la cl?ar already. Thtre axe no leading ipirita or master mimls in the con vention at Philadelphia. There la no individual there who la gifted with the commanding power or overwhelm ing intellect which John C. Calhoun, Andrew Jackson, Daniel Webster and Henry Clay hare eash evinoed in their several sphere* in former times The Southern awn of the Grand Council, with some Individual excep tion*, are generally more intelligent In matter* of politi cal business than the Northerners. Th< a arise* f rem the peculiar social condition of Northern and Southern men. In the North, of late years, oolitlcs have become disrepu table. lira of talent have avoided the political arena, and taken refuge elsewhere? in trade, the profession*, or literature. For some time past none but the unprin cipled, and men who have proved their inability to earn a living otherwise, have besome politician* in the North, or Bought political notoriety. Hence an obvious decline in the character of tha class in your section of the coun try. Ma* in the Soath reeeive a better education, and one mora tutted to enable them to engage in political lite. They study tha acience of politics with mora care, and be aee beoome far superior to tha Northerners in prastical knowledge as legislator* or exeouttre men. These distinguishing traits of character are quite as dis cernible among the Know Notnlngs of Philadelphia as ihey have been of late among the old parties. But great difficulties surround the Council, and seem only to increase a* they are probed and discussed. On the general question of the naturalization law* there is not much diversity of opinion It ia generally conceded by all parties that they should either be gradually changed ar gradually abolished altogether But between thoie who advocate either extreme It may yet prove difficult to frame a compromise. The same difficulty present* Itself an th? religion! question. It has been settled in a preliminary way by tha exclusion of the Roman Catholie members from Louisiana. Tat there is a atrong feeling here in favor of religion* toleration per te, and for confining the hos tility of the Order to political Catholicity ; or that kind of interfering with the political condition of the various claiaea of society or which the com luct of Archbishop Hughe* and the Protestant clergy of New England ha* occasionally furnished examples. But the great difficulty for the Council la the slavery question. There seems to be but one possible mode ef solving this difficulty, and that 1* to allow slavery, like religion, to be an open question to all parties In all sec tions; to form a great national Know Nothing party on the basis of opposition to the Indiscreet and corrupt pcllcy of the present administration, and to allow each section to entertain, unmolested, its lo-al opinions In rererenoe to slavery, just a* it entertains Its private ?lews on religion. Even thia view, it must be admitted, would only be temporary; the question must be met ul timately la Congreaa, and an understand ng had on the terms on which new States are to be admitted, whether free or alave, whether according to the eonstitation and the praotice of former tongresaes or not. Sejpral mem hen of the convention, and others with whim I have conversed, consider this the only way of preierving in it < Integrity our national organization. They aay, let the slavery question be Mettled by Congress. If Congress, at a future session, cannot agree on a practical compro mise, let it dissolve, and adjonrn; let the queatlon be referred to the people, and a convention called to revlee the constitution and provide a now one, if the old one will not answer the purpose. It is very true that the present constitution was framed by wise and praotioal men, at the close of the Revolutionary war, when avei f faculty of theirs was In full play, and their wits roused to the utmost decree. Bat at the same time, the country then contained but three millions of people. Their interest* were of far lesa magnitude and lsaa exciting than ours We now count over twen ty -five millions of people and thirty-one Statee. Hence our circomitances are very different from what they were at tha time tha present constitution waa adopted. Unlaasthe slavery queition is disposed of in some practical friendly way, by a revision of the constitution) and adapted to tha growth and lncreaae of the country, angry feeling* are aure to arise, alienation will take place between the North and the South, and the ultimate re sult will be insurrection and civil war. Henoe the pro posal we have heard, if the difficulty cannot be settled in any other way, to call a new convention of tbe States and form a new constitution. If the representatives of the various States cannot agree upon a compromise that will suit the present time and give a promise of dura bility, then the North and the South had far better se parata amicably, and organize separate republics with separate governments. One thing Is certain? the adoption of this line of poli cy would compel real patriots and business men to re flect on the approaohlng crisis. The mere ephemeral politicians who have used this slavery question for their private corrupt purposes would be floored and thrown overboard. It la absurd to expect that the free State* can ever be pro-slavery) er the slave States antl slavery. Such a thing is as utterly Impossible as that a Catholic will undertake a defence of Protestantism or a Presbyterian or Eplaoopa cy. The two old patties long acted on the principle of dragooning the North aud the South Into an apparent uniformity of aentlment on the subject, and the conse quence has been that they are now both disorganised and ruined. If ray sunh plan as this could be adopted, the party might be completely organized, and with pro-slavery prinolplee In the South and antl- slavery principle* in the North, might go into the next State and Presidential elections ? leaving it to the meeting of Congress or to the national convention to be called for the purpose, to set ? le the question of slavery forever. I will make farther inquiries on these intereeting and Important points and ideas, and will give yon the result of my researchts. Among other curious phenomena attending the meet ing of the pending convention, the great number of per sons belonging to the old political parties who have crowded here with various views and designs is perhaps tha mast noteworthy. Several of the leading Seward men from your State, and several politician* from New England who are affiliated with them, are very bu*y, of coarse, with the object of breaking up the convention. There Is here a member from a Western State, whose name I do not now remember, who passes for a Know Nothing, and high in the third degree, and yet is known as a Seward man, and report* the proceeding* dally for the Noe York Tribune. Many of the members both from the North and the South talk with considerable lndis cretioa. Kenneth Raynor, of North Carolina, apeaha la a very hostile manner of the policy of the Niw Tons Hnui.n. He coniiders it an enemy of ours, from the freedom and tba sarcasm with which it haa oecaaionally ^'fqsstd the Knew Nethiag movements. The Hon. James Brooks, ex-member af Congress, it also here, and frequently denounces the Hould to Southern and Western men, as a foreign organ, edited by a renegade Scotchman, who has no other object than the gain of money, and lives on what he has filched from th* principal men of New York. Poor James forget* that ho himself atill owe* from three to Ave thousand dollars to George law for the expenses of his election to Congress. Another friend of yours is Prentice, of the LouinfUe Journal .- he ia very severe on you and the Hnuu>. I have other amusing anecdote* and oplalona which I may sand you another time. They deeerve to be re corded for the benefit of the Order. Proceedings of the Conventions TOR ORGANIZATION COMFLSTO) ? LIST O* OFFICiM ELBOTND? TH? PLATFORM COMXITTKS CHOMH, WO. FOURTH DAX.

Coroner*' Inquests. Unknown Mkn Found Dbownid. ? Coroner Wilhelm held an inquest yesterday, at pier 11 North river, upee the body of an unknown man, about 24 years of age, who was found drowned in the slip foot of Carlisle street. No marks of violence being found on the body, a verdict of supposed drowning was rendered by the jury. De ceased was about five feet nine inches in height, was stout built, had no whiskers, had short brown hair, had on a white linen shirt, no undershirt or drawers, white linen coat, dark thick woollen pants, blact satin vest, black silk handkerchief, gray stoskings. In his pockets were found live dollars in bills, fifty oents in change, a portemonnaie, wooden comb, pocket knife, some blask thread, a copy of the American Celt anu a card with the name of D. k J. Sadller & Co. upon it. An inquest was also held by Coroner Wilhelm upon the body of an unknown man, about 35 years of age, who was found floating in the water near Governor's Island. The body of the deceased was towed to the island, where a jury being empannelled a verdict of supposed drown Ing waa rendered. Deceased was five feet six Inches in height, was stout built, bad dark brown hair closely cut, wore two coarse cotton shirts, blue cotton pants, had a belt around his waist, wore white eotton stock ings and thick shoes. Had nothing In his pockets. From the general appearance of the deceased the Coroner sup. posed him to have been an escaped convict from Black well's Island. Scioidc Bt Drowning.? Coroner O'Donnell held an in quest yesterday afternoon, at the Twenty-second ward station house, upon the body of an unknown man, about thirty-five years of age, who committed suicide by jumping Into the water at the foot of Sixty-second street. North river. The deceased was obeerved by some little boys filling his pockets full ef large stones, sud then deliberately plunging into the stream. Ver dict in accordance with the above facts. Deceased is supposed, from his appearanoe, to have been an Ameri can. As his name or place ef residence could not be as certained, no eauee for the commission of the rash act has jet been made manifest. Marine Affairs. Stilt, Another.? The steamer Quaker City, lately ran ning between Philadelphia and Charleston, is advertised to sail from this port for 'Havre direct, on the 23d instant. She will only carry passengers and specie. The demand for steamers for transport service has, doubtless, induced the sending these steamers to Eu rope. This makes the fourth which has lately been put en. The others were the Granite State, frem Phila delphia; Tennessee, from Baltimore; and the Star of the South, from this port. Tur Arctic Expedition.? The bark Release and steamer Arctic, the latter In tow of the Release, to economize coal, weTe spoken on the 6th Inst., at 10 A. M., lat. 4020, long. 60 33, by Capt. Batch, of the ship Howadji, which arrived at Boston 7th Inat. Capt. B. repoits them going off in fine style. Hhokt Passion.?' The clipper ship James Balnea, Capt. Cbas. M'Eonrell, made the passage from Liverpool to Melbourne In 63 days, and thence, back to Liverpool, in 69 days. The whole voyage, including detention in poit, was performed In 140 days, or less than five months. This, we believe, is the shor'est voyage by 40 days ever performed by any iteamer or clipper. Her outward pas sage is equalled only by the homeward passage of the Lightning, Capt. Forbes, which was made In 63 days. The Champion of the Seas, Capt. Newlands, made the passage out In 71 days, and home in 84. Tnese three magnificent clippers have exoelled all the passages ever made by any British build vessels bound to or from the same ports. They are owned by Messrs James Baines b Co., of Liverpool, and were all built by Mr. Doaald McKay, of East Boston. The Donald McKay, belonging to the tame line, and built by the same build er, probably sailed from Liverpool to-day, on her first voyage to Melbourne. She is the largest of the line, has Howe's rig, and spreads as much canvass ss a 74 gun abip. She II fuller modelled than any of the others, but is longer, and has greater oreadth of beam, which will probably compensate for the absence of very sharp ends. Mr. McKay's ships now head the list on the Aus tralian course, hs well as on that to California. The clipper sbip Nightingale, Capt. Mather, made the passage from Shanghai to London In 91 days, 16 hours, said to be the shortest on record. The British clipper Star of the East sailed about the eame time, and at last accounts was reported in the channel, 98 days ont, having been handiomely beaten by the Nightingale. ?

It had been poetponea the day before <B consequence of the nnfavorable state of the weaher; but everything aesmei to conspire in Ita favor yester day, and all who participated In it appeared to en joy themselves to the utmost. Every ooe app??red to be pleaaed with bimaelf and the reatof maakin l, ani tin wiad, which R*oerally blowt the wrong way on anoh oceaiioas, aeemel to hare Made np ita mind to be agree aUe tor onoe. It blew what w?e betlere u known among nautioal me* a* " a spaaldag breeae," and, M may be su jpoeed, made ahort work of the rejatta. The air waa cool and invigorating an the water, and the bay and ita surrounding acenery glowed ha ail the radiaaoe of their aummer beanty. The Hadaea aurpaaaed itself, the Highlands looked, If possible, more picturseque, the Dyaiaa Fieidi mora elyslaa, and orer all the aon poured down a flood of golden light. It waa aae of theae daya e? which we feel It ia a luxury ta live, aad on whioh nature pat? oa her moat pleaaiag aspect, to oompeasata for what aha aome UMI inflicts upoa ua in the ahapa af unpleasant wea ther. Two or three hoore before the time appointed for the itartiag of the yachu, a aam?ar of them were en gaged ia ? ?H"g trial of their aaillng qualities before the Baal teat ; but It waa lmpoaalb'e to form a oorrect opl nioaof the relative meHta of each. The critiol, howe ver, of whom there waa a* usual a large uumber present, fouad no difficulty In discovering their merits aad fault*, aad paiaed judgment on each aa they swept psst them with swelling sails . Each particular boat had ita admi rera, and a considerable amount of money changed bands ia the form of bets The Julia, which waa built by George Steers, and which la owned by J. M. Wuter bury, seemed ta be the general favorite, and justifiel the expeetationa that had been formed of har Bailing quali ties, by distancing all competitor, although oa the re turn her topmast waa earned away. The members of the Club, according to their usual cus tow, chartered a steamboat for the use of those who were engaged In the raoe, and tlieir friends, of whom tlieladiea appeared to be in the majority. They h.i'. also engaged tlie services of a band, and altogether seemed to enjoy themselves immefcssly. Messrs. Spot, ford it Tilestoa, with a liberality and courtesy to wh'ch the Yacht Club appear ta be great atraagers, placed their powerful steamer Levlathaa, which haa th<j name of being the faatest running upon our waters, at the disposal of their friends, and extends! a particular In vitatien to the members of the piess. We take this op portunity of returning them our thanks for a courtesy which 1s more highly appreciated as it oame from pri vate gentlemen, and standing, aa it does, in marked eon treat with the uniform excluaivenese and churlish cha racter by which the Yacht Clob have rendered them Mlhe j^chtawhioh enteral for the prize were divided into three classes? the first iaclu-ilng those of over fifty tons; the second, those of fifty tons and under, but *v?r twenty five; and the third, twenty five tons "dunder The prizes were three silver cups, each worth $12S. The following are the directions whicn ware drawn up by the Club for the regatta ? t , The vaohts will pa?a to the weitward of a fla? boat ita tloned off Staten Island, below the Quarantine ground, ?.benoe easterly to a flair boat rationed ^ and eaet: above Fort Hamilton, passing it to the north ana east, tbcnce around the buoy ef the Southwest Bpit, rounding U f^t?iV/?i?Vin Vet pass the flag boat anihored off th* Long I efand shore, "? ?t to ihe south aad east; thenoet* the flag boat V# the Staten Island ?hore.pae.lng it to tie south and west: thenoe to the flag boat abreast or the Club Ilouse, llobokon, pasting it to the westward. in going and ^turning, tie buoy on the west bank U to be passed te the eastward.

So celebrated were oar pilot boats for their tailing qualities that they have been em ployed on eecaaiove of the greatest moment, wheie speed wan of vital Importance. During the war of 1812 they were pnrchaaed and used a* privateers, and among those which became distinguished in that line were "The Brothers," the "Unit?d We Stand" and the "IV< tlded We Fall " Of those which hare been particularly noted were two named the ?

Til* Mayer ud citizens of Philadelphia entertained, on Thursday evtsiag last, the delegates to the great Na tional Know Nothing Contention, assembled in that city, at a grand banquet in fttnsom Street Hal]. It mi an affair of great Importance to the future of the- coun try, and one in which the moat lively and eite naive- pub lic Interest waa manifested. The Convention still per sisting in sitting with cloned doom, and thus, as fur as possible, precluding a knowledge of its momentous pro. csedlags from reaching the public eye, cave to this ban quet additional importance in affording, as it did, the members of the Order aa opportunity to declare their sentiments openly and above beard. There was, there fore, the greatest desire manifested by outsiders to pro cure tickets of admiaaion, but there wim only a limited number for sale? the delegates being presented with cards of invitation? and these were put up at the high figure of ten dollars each. The following in a copy of the note of invitation sent to each of the invited guests : ? Philadelphia, Jane 7, 18S5. Dear Sir? Yon are oordieliy invited to attend a banquet, to b? given by the ciMionaof Philapolphia, at Saudom Street llall, this afternoon , at 4 o'clock. i'lease present this ticket at the doer. Respectfully, OOMMITTKK. J. M. Church. John Mecke, R. P. Oillin^Uam, Cbas D. Freeman, J. L. Gossicr, E Wamvole. Jos. Wood, Jr.( Geo. P. llonszoy, C. S Paaooast, John Fry, C. M. Neal, Geo. 8. Shirp, J L. Gilford, W. G. Flanigan. Mr. Church, the first of the above names, was chair man of the Banqaet Committee, and to his active oare and attention must, in a great msasuro, be ascribed the success with which the affair waa managed. Accompany ing this note was a handsomely engraved and embossed card, in the following style: ? * [American Ragle with outspread wings, holding in his , * talons two national flags, orotsed ? * [On tbe right, nnder tbis vignette, was an embossed ? * figure of Washington, leaning on his sword; and on the , * left, the Goddess of Liberty, holding in one hand a ? * pike, surmounted by the Seyth'.an oap, aad ia the other ? * a wreath of myrtle.] a J " AMERICAN BAN QUIT." * * Thursday, J?no 7, 1H55. * * [Grand flourinh, with stands of aims, guns and eannon . * balls, kettledrums, and other warlike devioes.) , e There were some four hundred and fifty tickets of ad mission and invitation issued; and there were fully that number sitting down to the banquet, dansom Street Hall is a very fine building, within a few stones' throw of Independence Hall; and the apartment in which the affair took place is a spacious and very commodious one. At the southern end of the room, on a platform of a few feet elevation, waa placed the table of honor, where sat the Chairman and some of the more distln gnished guests, under the tastefully wreathed folds of the stars and stripes , loopsd up at intervals by blue stel lated shields. From the platform four tables extended longitudinally the full length of the room, probably some 120 feet, and the lower end was also decorated in the same manner. Here, also, nnder a canopy formed by American flags, presided over by a stuffed eagle, was en framed a portrait of George Shiftier, a y song man who, it may be recollected, was killed in Philadelphia during one of the Native American riots ot 1844. A Bible was plaoed at one side of the picture, which was rsndsrsd further re markable by the mottos ? ? BEWARE Or VOREION INFLUENCE. And A r SEC PEOPLE OVGHT TO BE CONSTANTLY AWAEE. Theie was a somewhat similar canopy decoration on one side of the table of honor, but it did not appear to be dedicated to the memory of any "martyr." All the ornamenlsof the room and table spoae t> the eye o' something peculiarly national; even the very candles in the candelabras being of tbe three favorite colors? red white and blue. Handsome bouquets adorned the head and other tables, and everything really appeared to have been gotten up in pretty good taste, and without re gard to coat. The fallowing waa the hill of fare on the occasion :? AMERICAN BANQUET, AT SANSON STR BET HALL, Thursday, Jvisb 7, 1863. . visit. e , Bailed Roek aad Caper Since. . Baked Roek and Claret Saaoe.

There U a feast before you i? which I eontrihute a viand richer than ujr you hm yet UtM, and in order to eajoy it, it is proper that ;n should rceeire it with deoorone ef lence. GenMbmen, there is a p .rsimonr pecaUar to antuence, and' we ire now, in Philadelphia, so rich to lbs _ wealth of elotjueaoe and genius afforded b y all part* of our country, that we feel jealous even of time, lest it should rob us of xotne portion ot the rich feast which is spread before a?. (Applaune.) As the banquet, which we all have shared, wax so rich that an eptcure would hare lingered orer a single delicacy, unwilling to part with it, yet still lens willing to linger over It, hit he should lone that which was afterward to be present ed, g? in the rich succession of speakers who will h? presented to you this evening, jrou must be content with a more brief entertainment than their merits and year own wishes would warrant. For my own part, my Sutv is not t? speak but to forbear, to smite the rock m4 inrokc.the fountain '/f elo<iue?e? in others. (Applause ) Bnt there is a higher law? would to God that all higher laws wore as harmless? -(Loud appiauuet laughter and waring of napkins) ? which require* that, being honor ed with the duty of guiding th? festivities of thin ocoa sion, I should meet and greet, the strangers? no, not ttrtngers, but the brothers of our country. (Hi, hi and applause.) Brothers, nut in the lash .on which tha world puts on, but, in the communion of a com mon and elevated patriotism ? brothers of tha heart. (Applause.) Wo cannot ipeak as we would tbat welcome in words; let it be spoken in the readlnoao and alacrity of our co-opt ration and in the fidelity of our earnest zeal in our common and holy cause. (Applause ) Philadelphia gives throb for throl* to the loyal heart of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has been ever true ta every Interest and feeling, which was common to ear generous national family, nor has she shown a moment ary discontent, a momentary treason to the zeal, the fervor, and (Helity which united her to our oommon country. (Applause). Philadelphia, sharing in thoea feel ings, is earnest and anxious to manifest them and it Is therefore that yon have been gathered around this Na tive board. Depend upon it, that in the present or la ? the futtire, as in the past, you will find that all ah* to and all she has belongs to the Union. (Loud and long ow> tinued applause. ) Her thousand greeu valleys have heart! and homes for the sons of her sisters or her trionds; aad her hills have iron and steel, and sinewy arms to wMd it, for her enemies. (Applause.) L should be glad, it would be a luxury for me, to address you, but I feel that 1 am encroaching on the duties of hospitality. ( Ap Slause, and cries of "goon.") I am a man of nisy eeds; a'l day I have to ait in judgment on sag fellow atzsns. and in the night it see ma tbat my fetlow citizens mast sit io judgment upon me. (Applause and Iavghter.) But to night, I am sorrr to say that I find I have another engagement to lecture At a church, which must be attended to, and thus must cnt short necessarily any remarks whieh I might daslra to make to yon. Hereafter, at a later period of tea evening, 1 may, perhaps, have an opportunity af doing so without e Dcrojiching upon those, our mora elofuaa* friends, from other sections, and if so I will be bappy te address yon. (Applause. ) But this much let me any, that 1 now aver here and elsewhere, by word or by net, there Is no crisis whieh can occur in the holy cauae la which we are embarked, that I am not prepared to give every energy of my Datura to it, and to call the American who claims that title, to the support af It; and ha is no friend of mine who hesitates or faltara to come up to the full mark of duty. (Loud applause. Mad "three cheers for Mayor Conrad.") Gentlemen, I wM give yon the first toast It is one which deserves fraan "the third" three times three, echoed not only to yen* voices but your hearts, and sustained by every haaA which la true to hia country. 1 give? The Union. * ? which toast will be answered by our brother, Kenneth Ray nor. ("Hurra, hurra, hurra.") Mr. Ramon rose to his feat amid tremendous ap plause, cheera, waving of napkins, and other dswuto tions of enthusiasm. He said Hsrd Indeed is the task imposed on him to wham to assigned the duty of responding to such a sentiment as this of the Union, around which olustar so many hal lowed and heart-stirring associations. The Union I tka very word of poetry Itself ; aye, the poetry of patriotism! What tongue so eloquent as to pourtray it* beauties ? what heart so full as to appreciate its glories ? what brain ao capacious as to estimate its value! The Ualea 1 The very mention of the word is enough to still all tho tumult- of oar troubled nature? to hush all the angry contention* of conflicting interests? to allay all the anx ieties of the patriot's heart in reference to our oountry'a future. (Applause) The idea of the Union of these Stalee ! How vaat the field of contemplation whish it opens before the human mind ! It grasps within tto horoscope the glorious asaooiatlons of the past, tho most intense appreciation of our present blessings, the most intense and anxious hope as to tlie glories of our country 's future. The union of the>se States ! Why, the very Idea carries back the mind to the time whan our Pilgrim Fathers leaded on Plymouth Rook, at Jamestown, and at Roanoke? when their hearts and their arm*, nerved with strength and vigor, Impelled by a devotion to civil liberty, and a resistance to religious oppressor, they braved all the storms of the ooeaa ? they suffered all the privations and perils whieh war* peculiar to a people flying from oppression to a distant wilderness. The same Idea of the Union comprehends the time? if we glide still further along down tho stisam of history? when onr patriot fathers, stung by the op pressions of the mother country, were lashed into re sistance, and took up arms for the purpoeo of asserting the great principles which were the rlghte of a British subject, and which thsy supposed had bean la vac ed Ibis same idea of the Union eovera tho time when that conclave of sagee met in this TWf city? ay, my brethren, within a few hundred yard* of the very spot where we are now ooagfegatod. Aad really whoa 1 allude to that important event in mm history? ohen I feel the stirring associations oonntotod with It? when I feel that I am within sight of that hal looed place. 1 feel as Mcass did in sight of the burning bush : that tha very ground on which 1 stand is holy ground. (Tremendous appltuso ) Aye. my fries 4s aad brethren, this idea of the Union! The Union? It carries your minds' eye back to the soene when that conclave of sages? whose hallowed bones now rest in our classic toil? sssembled together, and there pledged to each ether their lives, their fortunes, and their saored boner (great ippItoM). isd <J#cl?r#d that theie provia^f wirt, ft>? of rightenght to be, free aad Independent St?tee. It covess associations still more tbifl'in? evea than those j it carries yon back to all the battle fields or the revela tion. This idea of the Un on! Ucovtrs the aacriflsae af ? our fathers at Burner Hill, at Saratoga, at Brandywtoa, at Gailford, at Camden, wnere the blood of heroes crim soned the toil and watered that tree of liberty uadar whose spreading branches we are now reposing in peaoa and quietude. ( Tremendous applause ) Yes, any friends, this Idea of the Union, which was ths result aC our fathers' sacrifices, cannot fail to carry baok jam minds to the penis, the sufferings, the sacrifices of thoeo heroes, aad of that man whoso name is hallowed la ths heart i and affections of svsry lover of his oouutry? te a time, 1 say, when British cannon was heard bosmlag across the harbor of Boston, to a time when tho satrt ot's heart struggled with anxieties, to a time whoa our patriot mothers bugged theii infanta to their hoawms la.
