The report made by Mr. 'Hirst was adopted by a vote of 07 yeas to 3 nays— the Protestants refusing to vote. :Mr. Hugus from the Committee of res oluticips, refortcd the following: Resolved, That this Convention eprdi ally.approve and endorse the great Demo cratic political principles embodied in the resolutions adopted by tho last to o Nation al Democratic Conventions, held at Balti more in 1844 and 1848, and believe their strict Oservance to be not only conducive to the prosperity, but essential to the pres ervation of the Union. Resolved, That the Democratic party, in view of the present critical condition of the country, we should now, more than ev er, resort to the principles of its glorious founders, as furnishing the safest and sur est guides and landmarks; and that among thoSe of primary importance in the exist-' ing position of public affairs, we may enu merate : n' strict construction of the powers granted by the several States to the Fed eral Government under the Constitution of the, United States, 'and . rt denial to Con:- greSs'of all doubtfurpower ; a sacred 're , gar& for the rights reserved to the States respectively, and to the' people an abso lute non-interference by the several States and their, citizen's with the domestic insti tutions of each other; and a rigid econo my and strictaccountability in the 'expen diture of the public money drawn from the pockets of the people by, taxation, confin ing the . appropriations made by CongresS to national objects' plainly authorized by • the Constitution. • • ' . • Ri'soleat,' That the Corner atones of the Democratic party were 'seen rely . and deeply laid during "the reign of terror," by. the immortal patriots and statesmen, Jefferson and Madison, in the Virginia'and kei•ttuelty reSolutione, and in Mr.' Madisoires report ; and' that • wheneVer the government depart. ed' from the spirit of these reSolutithis and this:report, dangerous diSsensione - and in jurious donsequences','to the country were the Testilt.' - • • • ' ' Resolved,' that the Democratic Fitly is the true Union Party of the whole country, and 'we recognize no other We rejoice to witness that' the Democrats in other State:3, who disapproved the compromise Measures of the last Congress, have;; for the sake of the Union, resolved to acqui esce in them us a final settlement of. the 'vexed and dangerous srestioits arising pu t 'bf doMestic slavery ; and the Democratie party' . throughout all the. States, are now returning into solid .phalanx upon the principle that these measures must 'and shall be - maintained and executed,and with the firm determination that the party-shalt be restored to its fel mar ascendency and power in the administration of the Federal' Government. Resolved, That the Democracy of Penn sylvania will maintain,. with fidelity and , energy the faithfolrexecution of theltigi. tive slave law ;.Jtild thdt we. pledge our. selvo to (me rt . Our .best efforts to secuit lhu speedy repeal Of such portions Of 'the . ‘State obstruction deny . the use. of ‘ ouk jails for the detention of fugitivert from la bor while awaiting their trial, or in any other manner interfere with the constitu. tionnl rights ofcitizens of our sister States, in reclaiming their property.: • • Resqlocd, That the Democracy of the old Keystone Commonwealth having .de ferred their.alaims to a Presidential candi date to the appeal of her sister States for more than half a eenttiry; do now; by an Unprecedented majority; earnestly and en- Orgetically assert their strong and long de ferred right to the tenor of furnishing President for the Union, in the person of their fellow-citizen; :fumes Buchanan.— They have no second choice ; and' they firmly believe, that should he be,ndMina ted by the Dernocratie. NationalConven ' tion he will receive a' triumphant, old . ftishioned Jackson Majority in the Keystone _ State. Resolved, That we. present James Bu chanan as our candidate for the Presideri cy,- with the full confidence that the 'De moCraey of our sister States will ,concede to the Keystone State the honor to which she has so long' been entitled, and which she haS so long generously yielded: That the fame of our candidate as a sound statesman and zealous advoCete of republi-' enn'principles is not surpassed. Ile is a consistent and uncompromising Democrat, an able defender of the Jefferson= doc trine of State rights, a foe to the unconsti tutional doctrine of centralization—the ad vocate of universal suffrage—the early, tried and confidential friend and adviser of the immortal Jackson—the leading and successfill opponent of dangerous nmional monied monopolies--the 'Supporter of the' economical administration of government; the friend and promoter of agriculture and commerce, of domestic manufactUres and mechanics. The services of Buchanan in the case of the party and ofthe country, are recorded in the hearts of the people, and we believe that with the executive branch of the Government is in his hands, equal justice would be awarded to all the great interests of the country, and our be loved Union be Ear() against the inroads of foreign aggression, and the dangers of in testine commotion. Resolved, That the delegates elected by this Corvention be, and they aro hereby instructed to vote for him from first to last, and to use all fair and honorable means to secure his nomitiutipn. That we congratulate our fel low . Wiens upon - the successful termi nation of the late Gubernatorial contest; the election of his_ Excellency, William Bigler, as the Chief Magistrate of the Commonwealth, has secured to the people an able, enlightened, honest and economi cal administration of the government, and redeems our glorious old Commouwealth from the disgrace which has been brought upon her by the late reckless and extrav agant administrutiori; that for the personal and untiring exertions of Gov. Bigler to secure theascendency of Democratic prin ciples during the lute canvass—for his el. °quern and statesman-like discussion before the people, of national issues, which made the late contest memorable and critical for the country, and which conduced to the glorious result, the Democracy of Penn sylvania and of the United States owe him a debt of gratitude equally difficult to he established or discharged. Resolved, That all vacancies that may exist in the delegation •at Baltimore, now selected, shall be filled by a majority of the whole number there present, and that the said delegation shall have full power and authority among themselves to regu late by whom and how their votes shall be given in the Convention. Resolved, That the President and two first Vice Presidents do nominate and ap point a State Central Committee, consist ing of thirteen, and that they may an nounce the appointments before or after the adjournment of the Convention. Resolved, That the Democratic State Central Committee shall require.a pledge from each elector, ,to vote. for the:candi dates • for President and Vice President of the United States, who may be nominated by the Baltimore Convention, and in case of the neglect or refusal of any elector so to do within a reasonable time, the State Central Committee bp and they are here by empowered to substitute. • • Tho eighth resoluton was amended: by striking out all after the Word resolved and inserting the following. • . , "That this Convention has full confi- dence in.the.integrity and . talents of the delegates just selected .to the Baltimore convention„ and we believe that they . will triumphantly advocate, the • nomination of Pennsylvania before,the Convention.. . • The resolutions' ivere then . adefittid, and the Convention adjourned until 2i o'clock.

From tho,!enneylvaniam CHECK TO SPECIAL LEGISLATION A brief article in the money department of the Philadelphia' Ledger the other day, expresses exactly our views. of tho topics it discusses. Special legislation, it says, will certainly receive a wholesome check during this session of our Legislature.— The Governor has begun significantly, and we trust that he means to put a stop to class privileges that are fait sapping the foundations of our Republic, leavina b us 1 little but the empty sound of equal rights. This winter already, is our seat of Gov ernment crowded with borers, whose of-' Tice is, to speak plainly, the purchase of special privileges. Every lapyor that has an important case in Court, *bleb the law does not favor, asks a “sapplement," . harmless and unintelligible to: the reader, and, while general in its style, is really to meet a special and generally_ an unjust case. We trust the Executive may con tinue his watchfulness in this particular, and protect the public against this shame ful invasion of its rights by careless and corrupt legislation. The sound rule is, to pass no laws that cannot be proved neces ' sary to_the public good, and to arrest all legislation for purposes not clearly having this solo object in view. The veto power will be sustained by the people when exer cised thus, and the firmness of the Gover nor will live in , history as an example to admire and to imitate. The power of Cor porations, already so formidable in our le; gislati we halls, calls loudly for suppression; and the first movement • to assure us has already been 'made by the. Governor. No special acts nor supplements should be al lowed to existing charters. If acts of in corporation .or supplements to them be wanted for manufacturing, for coal mining, for railroads and the like—whatever re publican reason can. be advanced in favor of the special law desired, will be 'found much more. appplicablo .to a general law that enables all citizens to. do.the same thing that the applicants ask for themselves alone, excluding all their fellow citizens, without any show of reason, right or sound ' policy. The shortest and fairest way to deal with all such applications now befom the Legislature, would be to make sup plement to the present general.manufac torsi law, that will cover therm ; and thus at once dismiss the host. of borers that annoy Members, and make a whole some beginning, that will . relieve every man' in the State of the annual fear ho now justly entertains of having his rights inva ded by stealtliy.and special - laws, that lift • his nighbor above him, interfere with the business, pad rob him of his equal. rights. Bread Without a Crust The following will' be interesting to housekeepers, and we would advise its tri al. The, Wyoming Co. Mirror says:— Mr. Throop, of this village; lately present ed us a loaf of' bread, which was done, without a crust. The prOcess of baking or rather steaminff, he gave as follows :--- Preparci,the dotigli the same as for baking, in a tin basin. When in a proper'condi-, tion; instead of putting into the oven, put it into a kettle. There should be Same,: thing in'the bottom of the kettle; a hoop of tin two or three inches broad would behest; to keep the basin irorwthe' bottpm, and there should bo riufficiell water to'covei about one-third of the basin. :Keep the . water constantly boiling from the time the loaf is put in, till it la dene, which ,Will bp about three-quarters 'of an hour,. with Ordinary sized loaf. • To, know when it is done,. press upon'the 'Centre •of the top:of the loaf with the thunab',andiif done, it will pull back . on remoVing', ipa thumb, if not; the indentation • Will reinain2 'The' loaf presented us' s nearlyasAvlitto outside as' inside, and filo outside' is .

Astir.s.—T. R., Of tinghampton; *asks'; "Is the ash of anthracite coal' a fer-: linger, and if so, how should it be applied? What would be its effects 'on fruits, 'mai; cularly 'grapes?" It is a'fertiliser, because it 'contains lime, magnesia, iron, alumina; and:sometimes - potash. Ilhould be mix= ed with tho sell; because Se mechanical action of the cinders in heavy land is very beneficial. Its effects on fruits, "particu larly grapes,"` Will be good, because it contains the necessary ingredients. Coal eindeis would be a good bottoming for a vine bed.
