This body met at Knoxville, Tennessee, on
tho 10th instant, and continued in. session fot
fourdays, adjourning on ttie 18ttunstaiit. About
eight hundred delbgates 'wero itt attendance.
Every Southern State, oxcopt Texas, was re
presented. A variety of propositions were
introduced, and many questions discussed,
during its session. A resolution was adopted,
after a protracted debate; recommending that
the' eighth article of' the treaty with Great
Britain, rattSed in 1842, providing for keeping
a squadron on the coast of Africa for the
suppression of the slave trade, should be an
nulled under the provision of the first clause
of the eleventh article of the said treaty. In
advocating this, resolution, the design of
favoring- a revival of the slave trade was
disavowed by its author, who urged its adop
tion, mainly on the ground that the efforts of
the parties to that treaty had totally failed to
secure the object professed. A resolution re
commending the Legislatures of the slave
holding States to pass acts exempting one or
more slaves in the hands of each slaveholder
from liability for debts contracted after the
passage of said acts, was adopted. Also, re
solutions favoring the establishment of lines of
steamships from southern ports to Europe —
the supply of increased ihcilities in the South
for the acquisition of learning, particularly of
the higher branches —tho extension of more
aid and protection to the Territory of Arizona
,by the General Government—as well as re
ports on tho.following subjects:
On the securing an exclusive right to tho
Tehuantepec route.* On the repeal of laws
granting bounties to those engaged in the
northeastern.fisheries. On the letter of Major
pliere, of. Florida, contrasting the advantages
of slave labor over the apprenticeship system
advocated, by England, which was ordered to
be embodied in the proceedings of the Con
vention, and published therewith. On the
establishment of agricultural,, commercial,
manufacturing* and educational associations.
Oh tho more extended cultivation of the
grape. On the publication of tho proceedings
of the Convention. On recommending to the
General Government to procure the repeal or
reduction by foreign countries of the duties
on raw and manufactured tobacco. On pro
curing exclusive control,of the Isthmus in
Central America.
■ Besolutlons favoring a resort to a system of
direct taxation by the General Government,
in lieu of the present tariff duties, were dis
cussed at length, but were not adopted. Reso
lutions endorsing Gen. 'Waikse’s movements
in Nicaragua were introduced, but defeated by
a large majority. Tho noxt Southern Com
mercial Convention is to be held at Montgom
ery, Alabama, on tho second Monday in May,
, The general tone of tho proceedings of this
Convention appears decidedly more conserva
tive and national than that of the generality
of its predecessors. While it was composed
of delegates exclusively from the Southern
States, a desire was frequently manifested to
consider the questions submitted for its action
rather in a national than in a sectional spirit.
No better proof of this cou'd be givon than
the closing.proceedings of the Convention,
which are thus reported :
.Mr. Blunt, of,Mobile, offered the following
preamble and resolutions, which were adopted:
The. integrity of the Union of the United
States is the first wish of every true patriot;
its preservation under the Constitution de
mands the best energies of its citizens.
The Boutbem slaveholding States, in their
loyalty and devotion to its continuance, do not
assume to themselves more credit than is due
to the conservative spirit and patriotic feelings
which exist among that portion of their North
ern fellow-citizens with whom they would co
operate to arouse a spirit of resistance to the
anarchical, tendency of large masses of the
Northern population, and bring back the go
vernment of the Union to the purity and sim
plicity with which it was administered in the
better and happier days of the Republic.
To properly direct wholesome public senti
ment of the North—to separate the political
elementsof disturbance and revolution from tho
great popular opinion of the freo States—to.
bring into active and healthy exercise the whole
some patriotic impulse still existing among
them, and to make a concert of, action with
them and the conservative influences governing
the. popular* feeling of the South, bo it, thbro
fbre,‘ . . • ,
Remised, That in the, opinion of this Con
tention,agricultural*, manufacturing, com
mercial and mechanical classes of the whole
Union are deeply interested in Ijs preservation
under the guarantees of the Constitution.
. Rewind, That d convention of delegates,
representing the agricultural, manufacturing,
mechanical, and commercial classes of all the
States of the . Union,' bo held in Louisville,
Kentucky, on the third Monday of July, 1858,
to take into consideration the state of public
affairs, to devise ways and means for the per
potulty 'of our institutions, the enforcement of
all the constitutional guarantees by the General
Government to the several Statos, the unquali
fied recognition of the rights of the. States,
and the prompt execution of all laws constitu
tionally enacted under the supremo authority
of the Union, would, in the' opinion of this
Convention, go very far to advance the public
welfare and curb the wild ■ spirit of anarchy
and fanaticism which* now disturb the peace
and happiness of our common country.
The place for holding tho convention was
changed from Louisville to Memphis, Tennes
see, Kentucky being only represented by one
in this convention.
We are alike pleased with the tone of the
resolutions above quoted, and with the
proposition they suggest, which is woll
worthy of the consideration of the whole body
'of the American people. We cordially favor
the idea of a grand National Industrial Con
vention. There can be no question of tho
* substantial idontity of tho interests of the groat
body of the American people, when they aro
properly considered, without reference to soc
tional divisions. To a great v extent the bonds
of, commerce unite together tho whole civil
ized earth in a community of interest, and cer
tainly they have, to a wonderful degree, mutu
ally promoted the welfare of all the people of
all the States of ,thls Union upon the grand
theatre of free trade, afforded by the happy
arrangement of a country so large in extent
and so variod in its productions, being under
the control of one General Government.
The foreign trade of this nation is but a
trifle compared with its internal commerce.
Facilities for the rapid communication of in
telligence and the speedy transportation of
goods' are rapidly boing multiplied. The
-North and tho South unquestionably have
their mutual industrial affairs so closely en
twined that any real benefit to one section
would, directly or indirectly, benefit both.
The intimate connection between our agri
cultural, mechanical, commercial, and manu
facturing interests is Indisputable. Let zeal
ous and overheated sectlonalists say what they
will, who can fail to - discern that any serious
blow to one section would be folt by all 1
Let all, then,: meet in conncii. Let the
North, South, East, and West bo repre
' dented. Our word for it, if this matter is
properly understood, old Pennsylvania will
delight in such an assemblage, National to her
heart’s core in all her sentiments, she views
with no feelings of jealous envy the prosperity
of any of her sister States—she will checrftilly
do what she can do, justly and properly, to
advance the ‘interests of any and of all of
them—and, deeply impressed with the value of
the Union to herself and to all its component
parts, her loyal heart will rejoice in any efforts
she can make to cement it and to bind its liga
ments together with Indissoluble ties.

, A Now York’paper of yesterday publishes a
letter, dated (‘United States Flag-ship San
Jacinto, Hong Kpng, Saturday, Juuo 9,1867,”
giving the following* derails ,of tho Intended
seizure of Formosa (a fertile island between
Chusan and Hong Kong) by a United States
naval force:
“I stated, in my letter of May 25, that there was
a projeot on foot tor the seizure of the rioh island of
Formosa. By a letter received yesterday by W
official, to whloh as yet very little publicity has
been given, I learn the following additional faats.-
Th*ey are perfeotly reliable.
“Borao three months sinoo Oapt. J. p. Simms, of
the United states Marine to the
San Jacinto—'was mysteriously missing, gone no
body but our executive knew where. It was un
derstood after a few weeks that he hod been de
tailed for duty—where, and for what kind, was
known only to the eleot. It lß now ascertained
that Am instructions were to proceed to Formosa,
and in the city of Fungshan hoist the American
flasfand taie formal possession of the island .
It is to ho held as an indemnity for the losssb sus
tained by Amerionn oitizens during the present
war. Ours boiug the prior claim wul, of course,
be respooted by the contending parties, be they
English, French, or Spanish, all of which Powers
may have a finger In the pie.”
Tho journal in which it appears declines en
dorsing its contents, but says:
“ While It comes from a source likely to be well
informed, we hesitate about giving full credence to
it.' It seems improbable that suofi a step should be
resorted to without n previous demand for indem
nity, followed by a refusal to give it. The seizure
of a portion of Chinese territory oan he regarded
by the Chinese in no other light than as an aotof
war; and it is hardly conceivable that our Govern
ment should havo resolved upon war without a
preliminary effort to obtain satisfaction by other
If tho island of Formosa had been taken by
tile United States, intelligence to that effect
would have been transmitted to England from
Hong Kong. As yet, therefore, the matter,
if anything, Is but an intention up to the latest
date. It Is not stated, either, that Captain
Sihhs, of the Marines, took any of his corps
with him—rather a necessary stop, it must be
ownod, considering that Formosa, in the eapl-,
tal of which he was to' “ hoist tho American
flag and take formal possession of the island,”*
contains “ over two millions of Chinese in
habitants, besides an unknown number of
Only that our Now York friends are never
sold, we would ask whethor Mr. Richard
Adah Locke hod been lately seen about the
newspaper offices in Gotham? But the cele
brated Moon-Hoax, with its circumstantial
dotails, was more probable than this espturo of
Formosa by a military marine.
As having a bearing upon tho Kansas ques
tion, and as Indicative of tho creed of tho
State-rights party, we ask the attention of our
readers to the following noble sentiments,
which were published in the far-tamed address
of tho Southern members of Congress of 1849.
The address was called forth by the questions
touching the admission of California, and it
was penned by Mr. Gamiouk hlmsolf, and
signed by such men as Hunter, Mason, But
ler, Bodert *W. Johnson, Jefferson Davis,
Jacob Thompson, Barnwell RnETT, Atchi
son, and *Wm. R. Kino. Read it:
“Wo hold that the Federal Government has no
right to extend or restriot slavery any more than to
establish or abolish it; nor has it any right what
ever to distinguish between the domestic institu
tions of one Stnto or section and another As the
Federal representative of eooh and all the States,
it is bound to deal out, within the sphere of its
powers, equal and exact justice to all. We ask
not—ns the North alleges we do—for tho extension
of slavery. .That would make discrimination in
our favor os unjost and unconstitutional us the
discrimination they ask against us In their favor.”
The Paducah (Kentucky) Herald says:
“ Th is is the standard by which we shall judge
the Administration of. Mr. Buchanan. This is
the test which State-rights Democrats will
apply to it. If at the end of one year the
glorious old Patriot is found lacking to this
standard, we shall not be slow to denounce
where we now defend.”

Railroad from Gretson to Ebensburg,
The projected branch railroad from Crcsson
to Ebcnsburg bids fair to end In something
more tlianmeretalk. The parties most deeply
interested have taken np the matter in good
earnest. Tho Ebensburg Democrat says:
“Several of the most influential and wealthy
citizens of that place intend visiting Phila
delphia shortly, for the purpose of calling on
tho president of the company, and ascertain
ing what arrangements can be made: The
project is by no means a visionary one. If
the matter is once taken in hand in earnest,
from fifty to seventy thousand dollars in stock
will bo taken in this place and vicinity. Tho
road, if constructed, will pay as well, if not
better than tho Indiana branch, and will not
be so expensive to construct.”

Washington, Aug. 19,1857
The President, a short time ago, received a letter from
Professor Silliraan and others, including several Doctors
of Divinity, of New Haveu, objecting to the employment
by him of the United States military forces to execute
the so-called laws of Kansas, and assuring him they will
cease not to pray that he may have the proper course of
duty pointed out to him, Or something to that effect.
To this letter the President has just replied, briefly
hut pointedly, denying their promises, questioning their
knowledge of those lairs, and, after acknowledging their
validity, he calmly assures them that, by tbe help of
God, he will enforce them, in accordance with his oath
of office.

[From the Now Orleans Picayune of the 12th.]
The mails of the steamship Texas, Capt. Forbes,
reached us this mormng by the steamship Atlantic.
Dates are to the 7th inst., from Vera Crus; to the
3d from the capital—two weeks later.
The principal news of interest, as ever, concerns
the difficulty with Spain, of which none of the
papers at the capital anticipate a speedy or an
amicable adjustment. The last Madrid mall,
arrived on the 31st ult., with important despatches
for the Government, was particularly unsatisfac
tory. “ Spain continued,” says the Extraordinary
u to exact all of heroriginal demands, andSenorLa
fragua, equally stern, refuses to yield a point of
the grounds first taken—not to allow the Spanish
convention; and not to give any indemnity to the
families of those assassinated at San Vicente.”
The same paper, doubtless to a degree! In the
confidence of the Government, says: !‘Altogether,
we cannot see that anything towards an amicable
termination of the present trouble has been arriv
ed at by our latest dates, apd the ehanees are all
on the side of the breach being made wider by the
receipt of the late Instrnotjops from tft? Govern
ment of Mexico by Senor Latergua-”
The instructions here mentioned are those to
which wo have before alluded as containing an
ultimatum, upon which the last negotiations were
based. No despatches had been received from
Gen. La&agna since their arrival at Madrid.
In the mean time, tUppapera abound is notices
of preparation for war. The defep§p3 of yera Crai,
in particular, progress with the most romarkftbif
activity. “Temporary works.” says a letter to
the Trait Union, “have been thown up out
side the fortifications of the city; the artillery of
San Juan de Ulna has been put in its place, and
many pieces of great p&ljbre added; munitions of
war are everywhere to be seen, ans the enthusi
asm of the neople is at its height,” As to thy
movement or troops, the Vera Croz Progreso , sth ;
instant, says:. “The Hidalgo battalion of National
Guards has been incorporated in the Zuloaga bri
ade; that of Tlalpan in the brigade of Echeaga
ay. The troop? are ready to march at any mo
ment whithersoever their services are demanded.
On the 22d ult. the foqrth regiment qf cavalry
loft San Looif,Pbtosi for thq capital.”
The Spanish war steamer Been, of the Havana
squadron, arrived at Vera rims on the sBtb, on
watt miistoa ie not stated. Sho was anchored at
1068.00 —1324.60
The papers abound in a thousand rumors and
statements, of what importance we know not, on
this subject. We give one of the latest from the
Monitor ; f( ft is said on authority of letters from
Havana, that the Dapteto General has orders to
put the Spanish squadron in motion towards the
end of September, the places of destination being
Vera Crus and Acapulco. It U rumored that Santa
Anna will acoompany the expedition.”
The Monitor more authoritatively adds : “The
Supreme Government has entered into a contract
for the manufacture', within the shortest time
possible, of a Urge quantity of arms, of the very
best quality and character In all the States the
National Guards are putting thepiselyes in a state
of admirablo efficiency. There is much enthusiasm
among all classes. We insist that the President
ought to make a solemn levy, and thereby give
public evidence of the spirit of the Republic. The
opportunity is excellent for the consolidation of
liberty in Mexico.”
In connection with this subject, Gen. Alvares
has issued along and eloquent address “ to the en
lightened people of guropp and America,” in
whiob, a pamphlet of sixty pages, bat published ip
all the papers, he reviews the whole question of
the difficulty with Spain. The connection of the
General’s name with the massacre of Son Vicente,
by which he is made to appear as the cause of the
whole difficulty, is the reason assigned for this pub
lication. Ha olaims it as his privilege to be heard
in his defence.
The address is distinguished by the author’s
usual vigor and force of stylp, and, though, calm in
its statements, is not without its evidences of feel:
ing and passion,
Tho Mexican papers publish an indignant com.-
munication, dated Taroaco, Jane $l, over the six?
nature of “Santa Anna,” indignantly denying tfle
authorship of the so-called manifesto of the 7th of
April, the subject of so muoh comment. He also
denounces the real author and his motives, repudi
ates the opinions therein expressed, and expresses
his eanvfction that it was really written in Havana,
with what object he does not say. Perhaps, says a
paper, some Spanish agent thpje uspd the n&me of
tho old General in the attempt to scare btapcqiptp
a speedy settlement of her difficulties with Spain.
We will only add here, that Santa Anna’s author
ship of this last letter (the denial) isdonbted.
They dp not seem to know what to believe about
tbo ola ehjoft^jn.
Intelligence of instjUAtfoP* to Mr. Forsyth, for
the negotiation of • new treaty with Mexico, had
reached .the capital and excited the liveliest
interest. The Extraordinary, good authority,
says: “We learn by a letter from Washington
that the first injunction of Mr. Forsyth’s Govern
ment is for him to settle forever the difficulties con
cerning the Tehuantepeo transit grants. * * *
After tfce opposition of the Tohuontepeo matter,
negotiations wity be commenoed for a treaty be
tween the United Ststw and thjs Government, In
which it is to be hoped the Mexican Government
will not negleot to arrange matters so that jhpip*y
have the sale of a small amount of drafts on the
United States treasury.”
Tho forty-sixth birth*day of the President, the
31st ult., was celebrated with great enthusiasm at
tbo capital. Among others, tne diplomatic corps
oalled upon him daring the day.
The Pinto war at the South stQl continues, with

pf a person claiming to be owner, whoso name does
not appeaypp Jhe papers as such.”
The vice consul nis protest, and for this

been committed. He waa afterwar us released fth

authorities in an official capacity until a due apo

The Toronto Bank Robberyr
Up to a late hour yesterday, bail bad not been
found for the party ohiefly implicated in the recent
robbery of the Government bank ageuoyj and Cum

sequence of bis refusal to answer the questions put

fcour£, a further information was yesterday laid
against Camming?, #nd A warrant issued against
him on the further Cflilge of robbery. We pre
sume the charge will come before MriQprnett to :
Tho Cummings case is but one of a class. It is
aggravated, perhaps, by the attempt to hide em
bezzlement under the pretenco of robbery from
without, apd maythus, by evidencing a clear in
tention to appropriate and not repay, be taken out
of the common category, But, at the cutset, the
probablo intention was to speculate with the money
of the bank, and returu it when necessary to avoid
detection. The large sums used in this way and
returned, amounting in one case to £lO,OOO or
£16,000, ivouia favor this presumption. But from
the nature of the business, and the confidence of
the bank in the integrity pf its clerk, detection was
not imminent. Emboldened hysuooess. he extended
his operations, and being of an obliging disposition,
began to accommodate his friends far and near,
without taking any paips tq secure bis positior, or
guard against surprise. Itsoopcame; he ww about

were determined not to vote for members fo the

ture next October, when they expected to carry
every election district iu the Territory. I en
deavored to understand them on the hypothesis of
consistency, but could not. They would not vote
at the Constitutional election, because that would
recognise the bogus Legislature; but uiey would
vote in October for Delegate to Congress', and for
Legislative offioere under the same 4 bogus’ law.

wanted. To a suggestion that it would fee of
interest to the prosperity of the Territory to have
political matters settled immediately and finally,
the reply was that such a settlement might tend to
build up the ‘d—d Democratic’ party which they
desired to see crushed to atoms.
“I withdrew more than ever convinced that the
free-Stato leaders do not desire to see peace or fra
ternal feeling prevail among the people- Their
flhject is to keep Kansas ‘bleeding 1 for tne purpose
