The maasee of "solid yeomanry" in front of | in atanda; the brilliant nnifonns of the American mil ary oempontes 'which marched aeroos; the inspiriting I ppoaranoe of the national colors displayed at various oiata; the gay dresses of some female adherents, who [uverod timidly about tho outskirts of the crowd; the Mm, earnest faoes of the ? oat and out" natives as imoarsd with the lounging, esroieas air of the more | iokers-on; all this enhaaoed by the departing glories of most delicto us summer day, made up a coup d'att at | ace novel, beautiful and unique. There was considerable foreign element in the crowd, hich was generally pretty quiet and orderly.

Ton are assembled as a body of A me- I Hms, whose sympathetic devotion to the institutions I I your oountry la paramount to all other considerations. I fou have assembled to exchange views upon the general I I tnctplee of the Amerioan party, which has so suddenlj I I rung into lira, and the Inevitable destiny of which is to I I ntrol the legislation and the administration of Ame- I loan laws. The American Order of tho United States I I its just elossd an important session; and having, by I I laausssu concent, drawn the veil which has hitherto I I >0000106 its sets, has presented to the people of I l.e whole Union a platform of principles, which, I I the judgment of the Convention, was deemed I In pie for the entire national conservative body of the I mnsviean party, without regard to geographical distine- I H, or iwretenoe to local institutions, in the full convlc- I ? that the constitution of the United States was, and I Far shall be, regarded as the basis of all legislation. I I will net occupy your time with any remarks of I ly own. there being many distinguished gentlemen on I B platform, from various sections of this Union I I ho are expected to address yon on this occasion, f I I ill merely say that upon adopting this platform, the I I 'legates from the State of New York voted unanimously I I r it, and upon these principles we expect to act as an luMriean party. I doubt not that they will be naanl ratified on this occasion.BMr. Wilson, of Maasa ??U, stated that upon our arrival here as represents Ires to the National Convention, our political graves I euld be dug. He pictured our funeral ear, and! pre I ime ho intended to be the driver of It; but I do not see I im hereon the present occasion, I am glad that instead IT finding my political grave *nere, I am still above I round and living, and you are witnesses that I am still I ble to speak for myself as an American. ("Hi, hi, hi.") leatlemen, you wtu next listen to the platform of prlnet |<?a which was laid down and unanimously apopted by I is Convention at Philadelphia, and in that Convention I racy State and every Territory of this glorious Union las ran repeated. It embraces everything that Is needed ? peace and quietude upon every other subject and I rsty other inn at the present time, but that Americans ? ball nee and forever rule America. (Cheers.)

A oompany of Ooatlaoatalo, la revolutionary uniform, and headed by Dodworth'* band, then marched through the crowd, la front of the platform, amidst great demon stration* of enthusiasm. The ChajkmAn, whoa order was la some measure re stored, said We are all very desirous that this meeting shall be aa orderly one. If any of those present are displeased with our meeting, they can retire at aay time; aad I now ap point every one of you a policeman to keep order on the present occasion. (A laugh).

(Cheera ) Mow, there are aome other eonaiderationa connected with tbia question There la your religion?the Pro tee tent religion of thla country?and there are year poli tic*? A Voica?What about the annexation of Cuba ? Avothkk Voiok?Oh. ahut np. ' Gov. Baowa?We might ahow you that there ia danger that the political right* ef thia people may be Invaded I and interfered with by the influence of n oertain church which baa ita headquarter* on the Seven Hilla. We aay without denying to all men the free exercise of thai religion whenever and however they may choose, the when a man acknowledge! a auperior allegtease to a foreign potentate, pope, blahop or whatever olae you may call him, wo have a right is deny him office undo thia government. A Voicx?That's the talk?we'll never atand it I Gov. Brown?We bold that our oonatitutlon ia th' highest law. We hold to no "higher law." We are m "higher lgw" men in the aenae in whleh it hea been in terpreted. We hold that the eonatitution demanda and command! our higheat earthly reverence, and without that doctrine onr constitution ia not worth the paper on which it haa been written. Theee are the cardinal points ; bnt in addition to theee, fellow cltliena, I nave to aak yoq, why may not a man flud auffl cient acope for hia talcnta and learning In parauodlng thia concern or oure at Waahlngton to exert ita power to build a Pacific Railroad or aome other greet enterprlM that will connect the Beat and the Weet to gether? Why not exert ita power In enlarging our navy, to protect our aoaport town* and guard our commerce, like ao man? sentinel* upon the oooen, la every quarter of the world? Theee are neat vital questions, which de mand the energy of the North and of the South; and yet that energy la to be expended upon the poor, miserable, detestable question of slavery?a queation whleh ia loeal, with whleh yon have no eonoera, and for which you have no responsibility. We aay, upon that euhjeot, the institution ia right < whether the institution ia right or wrong?(A Voioa?It ia rinhk)?you are not responsible for it. Wo aay, let it slown It ia a combustible question, which will not boar agitMon. Let it alone whore it is. Lat it live aa It lives, or die as it must die. Do not propagate it, but do not meddle with It. lot it alone. Let it sleep the sleep of death, if It must die, or let it live, and let tboeeto whom it belong* be responsible alone for It. (Faint oheers.) I wfll not detain you by dla cuasing this question. I have only referred to It be caure it con nee'* Itself with an agitation through large section of me country, which hat no foundation Why, one set of politicians tell ui that the Missouri compromise line must be restored. Well, suppose it were restored, what good would that do New York? What good would it do to your workshops, and your ploughs, and your merchandise, and nil the other branches of Industry whioh you follow? How much sweat would It tare your brows? Kansas and Nebraaka, two miserable, sparsely peopled Territories, awar there in the Weet, must forsooth be the subject or quarrel between the North and the South! Are they worthy to be the cause of quarrel? Skvxril Voioxs?No, no, Gov. Brows?Better that they never had been form, ed; better that they should be sunk In the Pacific ocean, than that they ahould alienate the affection* of the North from the South for a single hoar. (Shouts of "HI, hi ") Let them alone. Time and the good sense of the eountry will set all things rignt in respeet to that as to avery other question. But while you and I are quarrelling gand wrangling about thia poor, miserable question, the time of the public ia , _ lost, the public mo ney ia expended, our riofc soil is Mot developed, our mountains of ore are not mined, and our country lan guishes. Here there was a great move in the crowd towards one of tLe other stands whioh had been erected. Gov. Brown paused a moment, and then aaid:?Hold on, gentlemen. I have no doubt "Sam" haa made his appearance over there, but he will be here directly, for I tell you he la everywhere. (A laugh.) He possesses the power ot ubiquity. Hold on a little, and listen to those who are to follow me. (Cries of "Go ahead, then.") 1 propose to ooeupy but little of your time It would be impcaaible for me to address this large crowd with any satisfaction to them or to myself. (Cries of "Ob, hurry up!") I have been struok with tne sub limity of this mighty movement. It has been spon taneous. It has been the recognition by the true Ameri can heart of a great principle?the principle of self government, coupled with the consciousness of an abili ty to coxtrol their own affairs. Let the foreigner come. We will treat him politely, but he must allow us the poor boon of holding the reins In our own hands, and we will take good care of him. (Shoutaof "Hi! hi!" and laughter.) 1 heps no honest foreigner la going to ge mad with us about it. He haa no right to do it. I wag ? no war of persecution against him?not I. If he ooue< here and behaves himself, I pledge myself as a disciple ef "Bom" that I will ehed my blood In defense of his rights. But still 1 must vote myself, and I must vote for my native born countrymen for office. A Voicx?"that's the talk." (Cheers.) ? > ft In r * - Gov. Brow*?Would not he do it in hia own eountry? If I were to to Fngland to-day, or to Germany or to Franco, could I ever vote there? Gkntlejian in rax Crowd?Suggested that the speaks - should go over and try. Gov, Brown?It takes a good deal of mony^ and have not got it about me. Keep cool. You will hear 1 thunder some of these mornings. (Laughter.) Rosary Man?When it dees thunder it will make them shiver. Gov. Brow*?Yes, it will make their knees smite to gether like Belshasstr-'s. (Laughter.) We do not Intend to hurt those who are opposed to ns. We are in perfect good temper. It is a work of charity. Come, go along with us, yon foreigners, and'we will do you good. A Voicx?"We will all rile in the wagon together." Gov- Brown?And If you de not come with us yon will be a little like the Irishman I am about to tell you off. An Irishman ones said that be dreamt, when asleep, that he went to the priests to isttle some particular bu siness, end bis reverence asked him if be would take a glass of whiskey. He repUid, "Faith, and I. believe I will, plaice your riverince." Said the priest, "Will you have it hot or cold ?" "I be lieve I'll have it hot," he replied. Well, the prieet retired to prepare the draught, and just before he made his appearance the Irishman awoke, and said he, "I nivtr was so sorry in my life, foe If I had said 1 would taka it cowld, shore, I'd nave got the dram " (Laughter.) And so, my friends, we had bat iks it cold. Take It here, on this day, In the ter take It CUIU. A MR II AAV AW. Vffi saw U*J. 1M ?OV month of Jane, in the year 1816, in the midst of the greatest city in the world?the best piece I ever saw ?take the vow and came Into the glerloua fraternity. Men who do not come into this current are in danger of being left on dry land. Now, what report shall i bear with me to my home ? I live in a State of which I am proud?a State that never has angaged in these sectional agitatlons^and controversies, either North South?n State that reposes in her own oonscioua de votion to the Union, bathing her western border in the waves of the Mississippi, while her high mountains are covered with the gentle mists from the old North State, her mother. She has always been true to the Union In peace and in war. She haa always looked to yonr noble State aa a security In the hoar of trouble, and you hava always dome to the rescue in the midst of the din of national eonfliot. She appeals to you to day. Har voles is more feeble than jours; but she haa a heart that never quails. Tennessee could not leave' thia Union, if she would. Why cannot she? She has the admoni tion* of her own once favorite chief, now ma more, who told her that the Federal Union must be preserved. She baa the admonitions of one whose votes wilt never be forgotten while Tennessee is aState; she has the teach ings ef Henry Clay,?(Cheers)?and Tennises* could not getout of tbia Union North, beeauee there Is Kentucky In nor way. She cannot travel Wast, for there is the gT*at Mississippi. On the South *h* is hemmed in by Alabama, and Mississippi, aad Georgia; and if she were to attempt to crowd out upon the Kaat, there Is her old mother, who would whale her baek Into the Union. (Cheers end 1 anghter.) As we eaanot get out, therefore, we want all our brother* end sisters to stay in the noble family: and. my friends, I am a poor jtfflge of human nature and of tne circumstances surrounding ns, 1/ the appeal that haa been made to ns^ will be In vain. When Napoleon, in marching serosa Egypt, with his amy, sad aad for lorn, came In sight of the Pyramids, understanding the French eharaeter, he pointed to them, and said: "Sol diers, from the summit of these Pyramids forty centuriss look down upon you" It was enough for Frenchman. It stirred their blood and a hnssa was the response. My friends, from the height of throe generations of time you er* gased open, and this great movement is a spectacle upon whleh the" eyes of this whole Union rest. Will it sueeesd, or will it not? (Bhonts of "Yes, yes.") Now, I have to say to you. let as light it out. I have enlisted fox the was. If it triumphs, I shall rejoice. If it fails, I shall have the con ?eionssess of having done my duty. (Cheers ) Then I may tell them at home that It la all right her* ? (Loud cries of '? Yev, yes.") I may tall them that you go for the platform and fox the whale business? (Re newed sbonta of " Yes, yes.") It is aa American platform, it is American principle ; there Is nothing sectional about it. aad "flnm" is the oaptain of the whol concern. (Load cheers).

Yon remember the oele brated i?tt?r of Mr. Ifadieon. In which he thanks Mr. Webster for his able refutation of the absurd idea that a State could enforoe her own oenatruction of the const! tntfimnHty against the consent of the other States and the decisions of the Supreme Court. The records of Tammany Hall will slso be? witnee. that the ptlte .up porting Messrs. Jefferson and Madison during the time of the embargo and up to the assemblage of the Hartford Convention, maintained everywhere, in Congroes and out of Congress, that tbe general government possessed the power of removing any and every obstrnotioa to the execution of the lawa psaaed in pursuance of the conati tion. 1 advert to these groat and leading facts to remind you where I stood, and where General Jackson stood, and ^!I? J*" d"1?5?*10 P?rty etood, on this doctrine of State rights. Suppose, gentlemen, that In 1800, Mr. Jef ferson badlevUhed his fsyois on thoee who passed the ?u?n "^.??dDion laws- or that the war party In 1812 had called to the cabinet or the chief military com mands men who held out blue lights to the enemy; or that General Jackaon la carrying out hit measures against the bank of the United Slates, or the system of internal improvements as advocated by Mr. Adams, ebon Id have given th* high places of government to his o j ponente?would yanjnotjhavefcalled tbe policy of doing so luicldal and unjuatt Suppose that la 1832 a cabinet had been formed of men who opposed the polisy of the gov ernment and the sentiment of th* country ln respect to tbe doctrines of nullification and secession, what would tb# people have thought of ltf To ask each a question seems almost to insult tbe oommon Intelligence, for even in tike worst governments In Europe it is admitted that public measures of Importance oan only be entrusted to tboee who ere friendly to such measures, and that when the measure* change, the men to execute them must change accordingly. W* have saen numerous 11. lustrations of this fact ln the reeent conduct *f the British, French and German government nnd e^Jn |n Turkey but here In the United States, where public opinion is omnipotent, where discussion is as free a* tbe sir, and where the statesman looks to tb* people for reward, elevation and renown, when his labors and ser vices entitle him to be considered the author of a system calculated to aid th* prosperity, preservation and hap plnssa of the country. PreaUent Franklin Pisro* under take* to set np the doctrine that the petron. age of office oan supersede tbe relation between a measure and ita supporter, and tbat the true way to govern a people is to conciliate parties by tfring plaoe to leaders without reference to their agency in defeating or advancing th# great prin ciples of a virtuous administration. You have bad tb* evidence, gentlemen, of this doctrine in your awn city, wken yen saw tbe noble and h inert Branson thrown down and crushed, because be would not beoeme the in ?trumsnt of a mlataabl# attempt to conciliate abolition lata and free tollers, by selling out the Custom House offices to them, as the hneksterer does his. beef sad his corn. And tbe spectacle which yon have witnessed has beta fait in every quarter of this wide Union. Now. compare the prasttc* of this administration on this sub ject with tbat ef Gen. Jackson, or every and all of his predecessors. Th# maxim has basn to leok to honesty fidelity and capacity; and above *11, not to bring the patronage of the federal government into conflict wMh tbe freedom of election!. Why, gentlemen, so far from looking to these conditions in the use of the appointing power, it seems to be tb* dnty of the Attorney General to telegraph or cause to be telegraphed, on the eve of important eleotione, just what la necessary to defeat candidates who have not gtvan ln their adhesion to this ntw school doctrine about Stake rights.
