i She Democratic National Convention,
■Which met in Baltimore on Monday week,
did not prove any more harmonious than
whenit met at Charleston, in May. In
cftotlt was evident to every observer of po
litical movements that the two factions
oould notbe harmonized, and we believe
there wore but few who went to Balti
more, either as delegates or spectators,
that expected such a result. The first five
days Of the Convention were spent in pas
sing upon the right of the seceding dele
gates from the Charleston Convention to
seats on the floor of this Convention. In
'numerous cases the seats were contested
by delegates elected to fill their places, by'
those who were dissatisfied with the sece
.dsn. Before the Committee on Creden
tials and upon the floor of the Convention
a war of words was waged by the contes-
which in two or three instances led
to knock down arguments, and it was
bought one would lead to a resort to the
code duello, but with the adjournment of
the Convention it is to be hoped that' all
prill he forgotten.
' Every thing in regard to delegates hay
been fixed up by F riday evening, the the
atre dp which the Convention was held
was packed to its utmost capacity, as it
was thought that the balloting would then
he commenced. A report was circulated
that Douglas had withdrawn, but this was
not credited. A motion was made to pro
ceed to ballot and another to adjourn.—
Then came a storm* in the midst of which
Mr. Russel, of Ya., announced his seces
sion from the Convention. Mr. Lander,
of N. C., followed announcing the seces
sion of a majority of his delegation. Mr.
Ewing, of Teun., announced the secession
of a portion of his delegation. California,
Oregon and a part of the Maryland dele
gation bolted. During this time immense
excitement prevailed. Several States for
mally left in whole or in part, after which
the Convention adjourned.
‘ On the assembling of the Convention
on Saturday morning, Caleb Cushing, Pre
sident of the Convention, resigned his
seat to David Ohio, Vice Presi
dent The President said that the major
ity of the. delegates who elected him Pre
sident had withdrawn from the Conven
tion, and therefore be deemed it his,duty
to resign. c
Mrl Todd having restored order, the
.Convention proceeded to ballot for a can
didate Ibr President. The first ballot re

Total vote 191.
; Douglas having received two-thirds of
all the votes cast, a motion was made to
declare him the nominee, bat the Cluur
mandeeided that he would not declare
any person 'the nominee unless he received
■2Ol votes, without the Convention should
direct otherwise. The resolution was with
drawn fbr another ballot.
On tire second ballot Douglas received

voted 10 for Douglas, 7 for Breokenridge,

JST Under the head of “A Douglas
Noon at a Yancey midnight,” the Balti
more correspondent of the Forney’s Pres*
tells the following good one on our coteins
porary of the Ebensburg, Mountaineers —
We commend Noon for his pluck in not
letting the Yauceyites cry. him dowm —
Who knows but Noon may yet be able to
fill Tombs place in other places as welfas
he did at the “ Yancey Midnight. 1 ’ Hero
is the item:—
“ A good mistake occurred at the Yan
cey balcony. There being loud calls of
“ Toombs,” “ Toombs,” Mr. Noons, edi
tor of the Cambria (Pa.) Mountaineer,
who was near by, mistook the sound, and,
wondering at his sudden and extensive
popularity, thought he was called for.—
“ Toombs,” “ Toombs,” amid the clamor,
was “Noons,” “ Noons,” to his ear.—
With feelings which can be imagined bet
ter than they can be described, he made
his way to the front of the balcony, and
thanking his fellow-citizens for their wise
impartudity, proceeded to >. make a strong
Douglas speech. In vain did the Yancey
men strive to interrupt him* In vain was
he pulled by the coat-tail, nudged in the
ribs, caught by the elbow. The people,
equally in the dark as himself cheered
hun, and more than overbalanced the ht
. tempts of the Yancey men to cry him
down. He continued in and emphatic
Douglas vein, an the whispered importu
nities of friends and foes around him to
desist, telling him that he was in the wrejng
place, could" not convince hun. So he
made his speech, feeling that the people
knew best. .

public waits with curi
ositythe arrival in these waters of the
threat Ship. This costly experiment has
added something to the sum of human
knowledge in the art of naval architecture,
but it is chiefly of a negative character .
It is what she is not, rather than what she
is, for any useful purpose, that she will be
Studied by the man of science and the po
litical economy •
Nevertheless, she is a great curiosity,
and if her hUge bulk shall succeed in
Crossing the bar, where even the Persia
sometimes touches, and she shall run safe
ly Into the inner bay, she will excite a
very lively interest. She is the largest (
thing of man's contrivance that has ever
floated ppon the waters,; and could carry
beneath mid upon her capacious, d©?ks,
nipt only ail that Noah took with him into
the ark, but the ark itself. The ship is
built of iron in. ten water-tight bompart
nients, and Of double walls. Her measure
ment is about 23,0.00 tons. In length she
is 692 feet, in depth about 60 feet, in
breadth 83 feet, and across ber paddle
boxes 114 feet. Her weight is about 30,-
000 tons. She carries seven toasts, on
which may be spread 12,000 square yards
of canvass; in her rigging was used 79
tuns of hemp rope, and 30 tuns of mixed
■Wire and hemp. She uarrics 16 anchors,
! weighing from one to seven tuns, and 100
fathoms of chain cable. Her paddle-wheels
aTe 56 feet in and a ponderous
shaft of 160 feet in length and 60 tons in
Weight, moves a screw With a diameter of
24 feet. The engines which drive these
Wheels and screw have a united power of
about 12,000 horses, or 57,500 men, a
force sufficient for all the machinery of
Manchester. . Her full consumption of
Coal is about 250 tons a day. When folly
manned she requires 4,000 men, and can
carry 4,000 passengers of the usual distri
bution of first, second and third class; or,
as a transport ship, she could take 10,000
| Within the ample dimensions of her
interior, she could accommodate more
guests than the eight; or ten first-class ho
tels of this city, which range from 200 to
IjOOO, and she could receive with some
comfort the entire population, men, women
aud children, of a very large proportion
of the towns in this State.
She is undoubtedly a sight worth see
ing. In England, nine, months ago, the
people flocked to visit her in tens of thou
sands, and had she made then ajsucceSsful
voyage hither pur countrymen would have
shown the same enthusiasm. Bpt the en
thusiasm she excited then was for an idea.
It was the gigantic conception, the sup
posed victory over the elements, the im
provement in science, the immense stride
an mechanical appliances, and the new tri
umph in a commercial not the
mere fact that a huge ship was afloat, that
aroused the interest she then excited.—
She has not answered to this expectation/
and she sinks to the level of a remarkable
exhibition . At the office door of her pro
prietors in London is the sign “ The Great
Skip." She is great in dimensions and
appliances, and great in the magnificence
of her unfulfilled promises, but in nothing
eilse.— N. T. Tribune.
1 1 The Albany Express , in a little
bit of gossip in relation to John Dean,
the New York coachman, and his “Mary
Ann,” the daughter of the late John A.
i “We think the statement that Mrs.
Bean is poor is a mistake. A deceased
Uncle left each bf Mr. Boker’s four chil
dren 850,000. Mary Ann has already or
will, shortly have, that stun at her own
disposal. Mr. Boker left an estate valued
at over $BOO,OOO. He disinherited Mary
Ann and a son who had always taken her
j)art and thus offended the father. But it
is understood that neither the two children
who were favored," nor the mother, share
in the sentiment of Mr. 8., and, doubtless,
the estate wiQfiti the end, be equally di
vided. Mary Ann’s only sister made a
very similar match —marrying the porter
in her father’s store. But he had so much
prejudice in favor of his countrymen that
ne forgave the offence.”
PEOViNQ.HiMSELF.-The Boston Trav
eler tells a pleasing tale of financial inge
nuity. A gentleman, it seems,, held a
check of considerable amount on one of
the city banks. On presenting it, the
teller not knowing the party, declined
payment. The gentleman asserted that
he was born and brought up in the city,
but in vain; the teller was an unpliable
as a- spoke in the " Hub of the Universe”
should be, apd insisted upon proof. Fi
nally the gentleman stepped into a private
parlor, and after undergoing a slight dis
robing process again appeared, trium
phantly displaying a corner of his shirty
whereupon his name was legibly! written
in full. The teller was content, and the
money was paid. This is initiating a style
of card, which, however well it may an
swer for purposes of would
Certainly be inconvenient to leave with a
friend. ■ i

A CIECUMSXAHCE. —We
find in the Memphis 4»afancAeof the 12th
Instant, the following: A man homed
Vann, engaged in fishing near Charley
Morris's Pacific PJace, on .Friday last,
caught a very large catfish, which was
placed in a box containing several others
of the finny tribe, where it remained for
some time. While the fisherman was.en
gaged in removing the fish he discovered
a hand which evidently had belonged to a
lady, and which, it is supposed, was dis
gorged by the large fish. The hand, we
are informed, has' the appearance of hav
ing been burned, but, with the exception
of being slightly discolored, it is as natu
ral as life, and emits no smell. It is pre
sumed that the hand is a portion of the
body of one of the unfortunate ladies lost
by the burning of the T. A. Lacy.

stable in lndiana, while

demurred. The yotmg lady protected

the gent still demurred* when, as a com
promise, the lady proposed that- they
would play, and if she beat him he should'
marry her, which the gallant constable
couldn’t do Otherwise that) accept. At it
they went, and the lady proved to be the
winner. .The constable was invited to
stay all night, and in the morning they
would proceed to the squire’s and be made

A Reproof prom the Antipodes.—
The. Polynesian, published at Honolulu,
copies in Its columns an account of a tra
gedy not long since enacted in one of our
southwestern courts, and warns its readers
against lapsing into similar barbarism. It
discourses very seriously upon the state of
society which.prevails in the United States
and rejoices in the fact tbat murder is of
comparatively rare occurrence in Oahu.—
This voice from the Antipodes should not
do disregarded. Some years since we sent
oar missionaries to Christianize the Sand
wich Islanders j if thpy, in tarn, 'find it
necessary to send emissaries to civilize us,
it augurs very little for the progressive
state of morals in this quarter of the globe.

Bgk.lt has been shown from reliable
data that “if the entire products of the
vineyards of Europe were exported to sup
ply the natural trade of the city of New

The French are compelled to resort to im

consequent result is that but few brandies

free from adulteration. “The city of New
