The result of die deliberations of the Nationif
Democratic Convention is now before the public.—
Borne on the wings of lightning, by means of the
electric telegraph, the 'mews of the nomination of
and BUTLER has penetrated the remotest
portion of our wide-spread Republic, in a spacer
tillutrwhich four years since would have appea
impossible. This nomination is now the pmperty
of the Democracy—the National Convention has: ,
ceased to exist--and they have a right to inveni--
gate its proceedings and reflect and comment upon
its action., as boitomes Democrats and honest and
To these'nominaticins, we feel ourselves bound
by every consideration of duty to the Qemocratic
party to submit—and in raising the names of the
nominees—as-th.teamlidates of the Democracy, to
'the bead of the Reporter, we, stated that we done

" Deep fit the *mom of the men; buried."

ly Upon the Wolter of the party in the memorable -
campaign of 1844. Shtnld the - j , great " embodi
ment" of the Whig party now he theintluididate,
we may expect to see the sane issues again pre
rented, which - were so strontly urged by them in
\ that contest. Although the Bank is apparently-an
1 ‘ obsolete idea;" the " ruin" which was to over
whelm all classes and conditions from the effect s of
the Tariff of 1846, no where to be foimd, and itkpre
deceisor the exploded humbug of 1842, slumber
' ing in ditathli% et stillness; the sub-treasury,—out of
which Whiggery made so much in 1840, as an in
stitution tiangentue to the liberties and interests of
the country--nuecessfullyic operation, and daily
demonstrating, its utility and the wisdom of its great
projector - , MARTIN VAN Boasts; yet the nomination
of Henry Clay will galvanize into spasmodic exis
tence these, wilt the other issues which Whiggery
clings to with such tenacity, and the Federalists
will desperately battle fur the fallen bopes.of their
Idol. We have no fears for sudh a contest; there
is a potency and a charm for a portion cif the Whig
, party in the very name of Henry Clay, but the pee
; plc have repudiated his measures, and sealed them
with their condemnation.
A contemporary gives the following brief sketch
of the services of our candidate for President,
since he has oeen in public life :•--Geneca/Cass
commenced an active life in the uncultivated and
uninhabited wilds of the Northweitern -territory
when but a boy of seventeen. Possessed of excel
lent natural abilities and unwearied industry in their
cultivation; he-men became one of the ablest and
,most prominent among the civilians and politicians
of that country. He was femur* in its councils,
respected by all and admired by that great apostle
of liberty, Thomas Jefferson, who appointed him
Marshall of the district, in which station he remain
ed until the war of 1812. Having served hiscoun
try as civilian, from an ardent desire to promote its
interests, he volunteered in its defence against Bri
tish injustice, fought in the prominent battles of the
Nonhviestern campaign; until its close. Haviug
sustained President Madison in a vigorous prose
cution of the war, and, dikairignished himself by
courage and ability, the President, on Bth of Oct.,
1813, appointed him Governor of Michigan, at that
time a station of high responsibility ; being both a
civil' and' military governor. lu this . situation he
distinguished himself for fortitude and ability in
treating with the Indians, with whom, he formed
twenty-one treaties. In 1831 he was called on by
President Jackson to take charge of the War De
partment, the duties of which he discharged with
ability and satisfaction to the government. In 1838
he was appointed Minister to France, and immedi
ately resigned his post as gecretary of War. In
this important situation as agent for his govern
meal, he displayed abilities second to no minister
ever sent from it and his devoted integrity tothis
Neural and his success in - thwarting the designs of
Eagiaad, by the quintuple treaty, have raise& a
monument of respect for his memory that will ne
ver delay. In his capacity of Senator from a sove
reign State s as a shoed statesman and able debater,
he Wands on the platform with the wisest and most
experienced, and on the great questions of interest
that marks with proud distinction the present Al
triintaratiem, he has shown himself. their bold, un--
eomproMising advocate. ,

'''''We see much in the tone - adopted - toward the
Radical Democracy of the State of• New Ye* to _
disapprove. ' Surely, if merit hail any 'influence
with the Convention, they would not have ban
nmed away—or had but half-justice reluctantly
done them, accompanied with insulyinjury and
contumely. They had seen a preettAinit 'Conan
lion - sacrifice a favorite son of thel;ipire State—
in accontanceerith the dictation of the South—and
they had gone home, and by the name and influ
ence of the putt* and beitman who was ever be
trayed and sacrificed, therlad nttbly carried the
nominee dant Convention to victory. They had
with a self-sacrificing spiritanf Democracy worthy
of all comtnendatiOni offeriafixplbeir feelings upon
the altar of our faith. They were worthy, in every
respect, the especial regard and consideration ofthe
Convention. And bow were they met? They
saw their places to winch they were rightfully en
titled, by the customs and precedents of the par
ty, contested by a set of moo, who had come them
prepared to sell the Democracy of the State, to be
tray them, and make then; like combined chattiest
in the market, the iiroperty of the highest bidder.
With such men, they had no sympathy, nor could
they affiliate. Had they consented to occupy their
seats in Pannerthip, tligy.Wogid have them
selves ciattempliVre to - the siglt — Tft - eel e;
and unworthy of sympathy or reseeet.
That they are hiptietit men and sumer. Demo
-1 crate, is apparent from their refusal to submit teeny
ignominious tea or pledge. Why should it be tie
manded of the Radical Democracy of any section
of the Union that they be put under bonds! What
will this - great Moloch of the South next demand 1
Must we come cringing and fawning and suppliant
to their feet, or be told, stand back, you are not De
mocrats but' notions whigs in disguise", "Whom
the Gods would destroy they first-make mad"; our
Southern friends in whateveilection of the Union
they may be found should bear this in mind, and
that " There are some anal which will draw hre
from ice." We ask why the Utica delegalesshonkl
bd asked to pledge thernaelves to support the nomi
nees? Was it because they advocated Free Soil 1
Or that the South were determined to commit a
gross outrage upon those who dared to be Free?-:-
There were other Free Soil Delegates in that 'Con
vention, who were • required to submit to no such
hutitiliating process before permitted tc take their
seats. Alabama, Georgia„ Virginia and Florida
had declared they would not supped any man for
the Presidency who did not pronounce their
Shiboleth,—does any wafts a moment doubt but they
would ham been as good as their word! They were
not asked to pledge themselves, although standing
in aimed • open r ebellion, with their arms in their
Bands, offensively declaring that the ,nomination
would be a nullity, unless all their demands were
granted. The New York Democracy, on the con
trary only asked theta man shoild be nominated
Who was not committed upon the quotation of Free
Territory. They came to Me Convention'in the
full assurance of the justice of their. claims. They
demanded no concessions, made no threats, would
submit to no insults, or no degradation. In the con.
seionsness -alba entloringlanire of the great truths
by whio they are guided, they calmly awaited its
decisio&—and when they found it was derogatory
to-their honor, and to comply would compromise
their principles they quietly and rightfully with
drew. They new stand in an elevated and impor
tant position—a position whigh has no parallel in
the history of -font% conventions. They are not
actuated as were the Virginia delegate* in 11135, by
a factious and disorganizing spirit,--but by a feet
h% that they have suffered injury and insult until
forbearance has long ceased to be a virtue. Their
action hereafter will be of immense importance to
the progress of human liberty and the welfare and
r reification of the Democratic party. They are
made up of pure and able partizans, and we are
certain will be actuated by the Motto of their im
portant Stale—" Excmaron."
Future events may more fully develop the intern

the Convention should satisfy them in' all punka
