M. ynte'day left Brave, of Tennessee, in potseeslon of th? fl ?or, and i the act of the delivery of a mut effmtlve speech. I moderate aod conMrratire doctrines ?e?a? to have i a Met favorable impression, and the current sen *t thil morning U, that a compromise, upon which purely national men may stand, will be made oy the Co a ition. He was followed by El ls, of the District of Columbia, rho submlted a proposition for peace aod unity, based upon the imaginary, but not real, rftstaratton of the line. If I interpret aright the (tat of this ovemeat, It limply involve , the concession that, aa i abrogation was impolitic and nowise, it being now law of the land Its restoration would b? equally ?politic and unwiee, and heme to eater for th* votes i both extremes it would b? a master stroke of pol cy i ran the imaginary line, and make it as obligatory tnd blading as if the law bad re-enacted it with all its ?s and penalties . The fallacy of inch a movement is too t amparent for itlelna, and exhibits altogether loo facile ual pliant i for the exigencies of the times and the oa The debates of yesterday will have imprestsl your tders with the great diversity of doctrine that pervades i body politic, and of tbe s*em<ng impracticability of monixing such discordant and unoongenlal elements. > whole truth in the premises is, that the thing is Host perfectly impoeslble, and the efforts being made to ccomplish it will prove simply a waste of strength and i useless war of words. To an o';> servant mind this fast 8 so perfectly palpable that one ia led to wonder how kt is that, in such a multitude of Intelligence, the Isiue Ties not been direct ly met and the award made. A national constitutional platform mut be erected, regardless of the extent ot the excisions which it de mands. Tbe popular will calls for the operation, and that without delay. Tab* longer "boney-fuggled" by the Wilson abolition sts? meagre their preposterous and absurd claims to 5e recognized aa nationals aod Unionists? is to bring Into positive and deserved contempt the deliberations of the body. The country expects decision of oharacter [and Integrity of principle, and if the convention would vindicate its nationality, some more decided measures must be instituted than the restoration of imaginary lines and adcaptandum speeches for Buaoombe. The times are eventful, and a day or two at the most oust determine the fate of the Order. I have observed no indications of returning nationality sufficiently po 'tent or influential to inspire tbe least hope that fanata ?clsm will abate "one jot or tittle" of Its unreasonable and najuat demands. But. cn the ooatrary, it stalks "forth ia the open noonday, with all the boldness and im pudence of pretension which all "false pretenoes" are ?wont to assusae when arrayed ia tbe borrowei livery of "hoieaty and truth. Tbe fact is too apparent here to be controverted, that heee Union, national, abolitional fanatics constitute a ! jaxt and parcel of tbe body politic for sinister and sec jtional ends, and the sooner thsj are routed and driven out, "horse, foot and dragoons," the earlier will peace, feannony and fraternity be restored, and the delibera tions of the body result in a nationality that will ad crees itself to the approbation of the American people. Dtoeaaoloa of Om Slavery Vacation Con tinned. OMPOBTANT PBOPOBITIONB OP KENNETH RATNOR AND I MB. SAMMOKS? 1LOQUBNT UNIONIST BFXBOHIS, BTO. I MORNING SESSION. ' Philadelphia, Job* 13, 1865. I Mr. Jennings, of Illinois, opened the discussion in a i speech of half an hour. His news were ultra abolition; 'hid manner, "BombaateiTorioso ' and hie effort, j'souad And fury, signifying nottriig " He mi followed by Mr. Bur well, of Virginia, who ad -vocated the majority report, became it pledged the ; Order to quit agitation upon the subjsot of slavery. It , offended none by contemning toeir opinion*, but bound i the Order to maintain the law*. Thii wa* no dishonor, ?tat k duty. -He oould net ooount to pretermit gome ex pression of opinion upon tbe queetlon of slavery. I wa* the main purpoee of the Order to maintain the i Union, and this was the only question which threatened It. The oonventlon had harmonized upon every other subject. The foreigner waa bound by a limitation of Jhia political right*. The Catholic waa restricted in the abuse of hi* religion* doctrines ; but a pro J -position to quiet domestic discord amongst the I S ates and people wa* to he ignored, draped un > ?5er empty generalities, or left open for looal agi. , tatiena. He eould consent to no compromise which t disturbed existing legislation. With otners, he had en J tend the Older hoping to and a patriotism which neither { of the old parties possessed. To the interests which he i represented, the questions of Americanism and Catholi i ? ism were comparatively unimportant. The professions f of regard for the Onion, the pledges not to permit l the agitation of any question whiah should disturb it, I had attracted his support. He came Into it, not seeking ' power but peaee. If he was told that by re-opening the agitation tbe party could acquire tbe control of the government, he must reply for tboee for whom he acted, l that offices and honors had not sufficient charms to in " <luoe them to abandon their country and rights. A few ^ men might be rewarded, but this would bring no com pensation to those whoie property and rights were made to constitute the priee paid for thooe honor*. He eon eluded hy repeating his determination to consent to no other oonoesston than to maintain existing legislation, os embodied In the report of the ssajority. Mr. B. spoke for two heurs, and elaborated the views presented in a speech of ability and power. He was followed by Mr. Poo, of Georgia, who ooln sided fully in every doctrine advanced by Mr. Burwell, and endorsed every sentiment and feeling uttered by him. Mr. Rayaer, of North Carolina, next saeoeeded. He presented a series of resolutions, sm bodying anl assert ing that the repreeentaUons of the South that the Order waa abolition, and the abolitionists of tbe North that It was pre slavery, had no warrant In fact? that it waa neither the one nor the other; that It Ignores the whole question; that it recognised the Union and the laws un der it, and that It left where it properly belonged? to the Iccalltlee where it existed? the entire legislation on the whole queetton. Thooe distinguished propositions were elaborated with great eloquence and power, and, being eminently conciliatory in tone and tamper, addressed themselves, if not to the general approbation, at least to the general attention. He waa followed hy Mr. gammons, of New Tork, who proffered a series of similar resolutiona, one of which interdicted the leglalation of Oongrees on the ??vexed -queetlon" In the District of Colombia. These last were vindicated In a speech of great vehemenoe and some power. Mr. William*, of Kentucky, next obtained the floor, and, p tailing various proposltioas, gave place to adjourn ment, to meet again at 4 P. M. ? AFTERNOON SESSION. The debate waa continued by Mr. WlUiaau, of Ken tucky, whe Savored the majority report; by Mr. John eon, of Pensylvania, who waa against both the majority and sslaerity report*, and In favor of the restoration of ? the Missouri compromise; by dr. Pilcher. of Kentaeky, oppoesd to both, and in favor of the re affirmation of the eomproatlae meaaures of ISM; by Mr. Peek, of Maine, la favor e t the minority report; by Mr. McCfcll of Texaa, la favor of the majority report, provided saehisetts, la her present delegation, was opposed to It, as Texaa could stand on no platform whatever with them; by Mr. Booth, of Connecticut, against ths ma jority report, and, aa the matter now stood, would vote, but waa willing to oeaeede the right of the several States to their peculiar iastitutions, and even the "pe culiar institution" Itself to the District of Columbia, and was opposed to the Interference by Congress to the admission of Ml slave States, provided their form o f government was republican, Ac ; by Mr. Desbler, of New Jersey, against both the majority and minority re porta, aad la favor of the programme advocated by Mr. Hayner, because of its milk aad water tendencies? in fact, he denied the right of the National Ooansil to erect any pleMerm, Ac.; hy Mr. Barker, of New Tor*, in do tftnee ctf the right of the Nat>oaal Council to erect a plat g ?#tm, aad the neooesity of the erection, Ac.

Yesterday at noon, qutt? an audience assembled In the vestibule of the City QUI to witues* tie rale of the upilwit present sent by Louie Napo leon to an old friend of hie In th!a city, and ne little in terest was manifested to know who the person was on whom the imperial favor wan beetowed. But the curi osity of those present waa not destined to t e gratified, for Assistant Sheriff Frederick L. Vultee, who male the seizure, would not give even a hint who the unfortunate debtor was, nor did the most adroit cross- questioning give the slightest clue to the mystery. Of course, in the absence of any tangible data from which to judge, all sortB of guesees were made One gentleman was certain tbat it belonged to a well known sporting character, one who was known for his magnificent turn-outs on SroAd way and on the avenue, while others supposed it was sent to a lady, but the fact of its being a snuffbox dis credited this report. We learn, however, the late owner was a merchant, a Frenchman, and one who was intl mate with and befriended the present Emperor whea in poverty In this country. He has lately become embarrass ed in his circnmstanceK. and the box was seized before he ever saw it. He refused to look at the lost present after the seizure, nor was he present at the sale. The snuff box ii about five inches in length by three In breadth, and nearly an inch In oepth. It in magnificently chased, and enamelled in green ant gold. The cypher N, which ta placed in the centra, contains nearly fifty diamonds, ana above the letter is an imperial ciovn, brilliant with costly gems. The case is of red velvet, end has the im 8 r rial cypher on tbe ontiide. Baptist, of the rue de empart, Paris, 1s sail to be the manufacturer. Assist ant Sheriff Vultee acted as auctioneer. Taa first bid was $250, which eras eventually run up to 9400, at which price it w*s knocked down to John F. Ball b Co., of No. 62 Wall street Ihe box was appraised at the Cus tom House for $48$, and good judges of jewelry esti mate'tts real value at from >600 to 9000. Arrest of thi Blue J Ian ? The well known book pad. ler, called "the Blue Man," on acoount of the singular discolorment of hla skin, was arrested yesterday on a charge of creating a disturbance in Broad street. It ap" peais that ha was engaged in selling a pamphlet entitled "lhe Brooks ana Hughes Controversy" In the atreet named, when some Irish porters attempted to drive him away. He'reiisted, uay<ng that he was on American soil and he had a right to sell his pamphlets As he re fused to move, he was taken into custody by two po licemen, who took him to the Franklin Market Police station and thence to tbe Tombs, where he was oommit ted by Justice Connolly in default of bail to the amount of $200. Ihe publishers of the pamphlet, Messrs. De witt k Davenport, intend suing out a writ of habeas corpus to-day, upon Irhioh it is probable he will be libe rated. Lcctuxb on Ecbohx? We call the attention of our Jersey City friends to the interesting leetore which the Bev. Dr. Baird is to give in that plaoe to night, on Bos nia. Turkey, and the wkr in the Crimea. This lecture will be invaluable at this moment, illustrated, as it will be, by large maps of those countries, aa well as of Constantinople and other cities. Bee advertisement, in another column.

Oa Tuesday afternoon, Lutira and Mark Maguire trotted a match for $1,000, mile heats, beat three in fire, is harness, in presence ef a large nu mber of admirara and patrons of trottinf. The raoe waa beautifully oon. tested throughout, Lantern v tailing In three straight beats. The result of thia raoe prove* what ws have pre viously stated of thia fine young horae Lantern, and of the merits of the Bashaw blood. Be has bad a great doal of hard work since he waa purchased for the turf, and It is surprising to see bow well he stands the labor. It is almost time for him to be taken up, and enjoy a Uttle repose. Too much work mty do him material injury, which ean be avoided by timely precaution. His engage ment with Lady Frank Us should be the last this season. The gray horae? Mark Maguire ? is a noble specimen of the genus equine. He is very large, powerful, and st j llah, of beautiful gray color, and much faater than many supposed blaa to be. He made a capital racs, but was overmatched. The track was in the finest order, and the weather deli|htiuUy suited tor time The belting was all in fever of Lantern. There was, however, but little taken at too to one. first Beat ? The gray horse w n the pole and went off with the lead, which he maintained to the quarter pole by a length, in thirty-eight aari a hall seoonda Down the back stretch Lantern rallied the gray, and ma ts teverai attempts to get to him without success. The gray still led a length at the half mile pole, m 1:15. lhe pace waa severe for both, and a break would decide the beat, lhey da*hel around ihs lowei turn without the slighttst perceptible ditf?rence of position, and swung on the homestretch with the head of Lantern on the wheel of the gray. Now for it. Spicer urges the bay, and Hiram Is very busy with the gray horse ? he is worktng the bit eack and forth? now he lifte him ? that is not enough ? Lantern is gaining? now Hiram uses the whip? the gray increases his speed? he entangles? tan tern is np to him? Hiram tries the whip again ? tto gray breaka, an<* Lantern got s ahead, and wTas by naif a let gth, making one of toe finest heats that was ever witnessed between two trotters Time, 2:36.

The gray shows the mo?t speed, and although on the outside, be heada Lantern to the quarter poie a length, in thirty eight and a naif eeconds Down the backetretch he keeps np his pace; bat being forced too much (by Lantern, ne breaka up, and the bay leads two lengths to the half, in 1 :17. From there to the stand, the gray is urged a* Hiram best knows how to urge; but Lantern's steady, long uu tiring stride, cannot be beaten, and he wins by a Itngth, in 2:88>a. Third Heat.? In scoring Lantern breaks twioe, and as thsy come up for the word, Hiram remarks that ?< the race Is not over yet." They are started parallel, go around the upper turn side and side, and are yoned at the quarter pole, in thirty nine sesouds. The gray shows hi head in front on the baokstretch ; but soon after breaks up, and Lantern leads a couple of lengths to the half mile pole, in 1:16){, and cemes home a win ner by two or three lengths, in 2:MS){.

Since then, two moat important strategic movements have been elketed by the allien with complete success The first waa the seisure and occupation of the Russian posit .on on the Tcbernaya, which was effected with bat little lots, the enemy retiring before the allied advance. The other success was yet mora important, being nothing less than the capture of Krrtoh, the destruc tion oi the Russian squadron and fortifications there, and the obtaining of entire possession of the Sea of Azoff, in the waters of which the alliee have now four teen steamers The enterprise was accomplished without the lose of a man, the Russians having themselves de stroyed 1 heir defences and retired. The telegraph lines being exclusively in the bands of government, ten day* must elapse ere the public can learn anything be) one what the War Department chooses to dole forth; but the poasession by the allies of thelm portent station of Ktrtch, whence the garrison of So ber topol drew most of their supplies, must exerulse a speedy influence on the siege. There were rumors of another groat battle having been fought at Inkermann, but the statements want confiinttlon. Th* official despatches go back to the 16th of May, on which day Lord Raglan writes that xne fire of the enemy bed been *laok, being chiefly directed against the Frenoh wort*.

Alter an intel minablsdcbate, which lasted two days, some members indulging in three or four hours speechifying, the House dividod with ft ma jority lor government ef 100 I'almerston made a very plueky eptech, and it ii be'ieved that he had in bis pocc et at tae time the telegraphic despatch announcing the suocees of the second expedition to Kertch. Lord 6rey'e motion in the Lords procured for him the centime ot the House of Peers, and was negatived with out a division. The war is, la fact, a popular one, and any attempt to conclude a disgraceful peace will not go down with the nation. Tbe all-absorbing topio of tho day lathe victory gain ed by the Frtncn in treat of Sebastepol, and the very successful "second" expedition to Kerteh. It appears that tbe Russians, with a view to make strong wrtiu on the French approaches, bad formed an intrenched camp or place d'arm*i between tbe central bastion and tbe nea General FeHssier ordered these works to be taken. On the night of the 22d May, after a fierce combat, in which nearly the whole of the garri son of Sabastopol was engaged, tbo French carried ons bait of the works, and kept them; on the following night they carried tbe remainder. Gen . I faHsmer, in his official dee patch, estimates the Russian loss at 6, COO or 0,000. Prince GorteebakelT says it was 2,500. If we strike a ba lance, It must have been about 4 000. Tbe French suffer ? ed also considerably; but no official return has yet been his accessidirWVuUUo*- Polissisr hae well inaugurated The Rusnaas made % desperate artefe^ vKre'vJl army, works, but wero driven back with great slaughter. On the 2&th May tbe French took possession of the lines of tbe fobernsya with J6,000 men, and have estab lished a oamp at Tcbargoun, The allied armies, including the Sardinian contingent of 16,000 men, are now 230,000 strong, and every day we expect to hear of a grand attack having been made upon the Russian army under Llprandi, which, if suc cessful, would be immediately followed by an assault. In fact, I think tbe siege of Sebuitopol 1s drawing to a denouement. In my last letter I Informed you that the expedition to Kerteb was ordered back when in lit ht of the proposed place of action. There must have boon some error or misconoeptioB of instructions, for the expedition wss ordered to sail again. The men, after baring been laud ed, were re-embarkrd, and the allied squadron was again off the straits of Kertch on the 26th of May? tbe Queen's birthday.
