The Convention then took a recess for fifteen minutes. 12 O'CLOCK, M. • Convention re-assembled, when Mr. MILLS, Chairman of the committee on resolutions, announced that the commit tee was ready to report. The report was then read by Mr. COPI RAD, and unanimously adopted, as fol lows : PREAMBLE.-.TIIC Whig delegates from the various counties and districts of Pennsylvania, assembled in Convention nt Harrisburg, for the purpose of pre• sting to the people suitable candidates the offices of . Governor and Canal Commissioner of this Commonwealth, and having discharged that duty, pre rent the following resolutions as expres sive of the views of the Convention : Resolved, That this Convention offers its sincere congratulations to the people of this Commonwealth, and of the Uni ted States at large, upon the rallying of so large a majority of the people to the principles of the Declaration of Inde pendence, and the faith of the founders of the Republic. Resolved, That the triumph of the Whig Democracy, as exhibited by the majority in both houses of the General Assembly of this Commonwealth, can not be viewed as complete, until the Ex ecutive branch of the government shall be made to harmonize with the Legisla ture. Resolved, That having entire confi dence in the political integrity and sound Democratic Whig principles of General JAMES IRVIN, of Centre county, as exhibited in a long and active life—be lieving his talents to be of the highest order and fully equal to the due perfor mance of any trust that may be reposed in him by the people, and knowing his public and private character to be pure and unspotted, this Convention unani mously recommend him to the people of Pennsylvania as a suitable candidate for the office of Governor of the Common• wealth. Resolved, That in offering the name of this distinguished citizen for the .suffrages of the people of Pennsylvania, we design to make no new issues as to measures or principles, but adhering to the ancient landmarks of the Democratic Republican party, as established by the Father of his country, by Jefferson, Mad ison, and Monroe—the most prominent of which are the protection of the Agri cultural, the Mineral and the Menefee. turing interests of this Commonwealth and of the United States at large, against the competition and hostility of foreign nations, and pauper labor; especially of England ; equal justice towards all na tions but entangling alliance with none ; —the supremacy of the people over their servants—the restriction or control of Executive power, and the preserva tion of national prosperity and individ ual happiness. Resolved, That in the opinion of this Convention, the people of Pennsylvania —the practical men who are concerned in - the prosperity of the Commonwealth, the developement of its resources, and the protection of its industry, have here. tofore had from friends of candidates enough of hollow profession for the par ticular interests of the State, and are called upon now to sustain a candidate whose life and principles are pledged for his faithful administration of public affairs, as they are identified with the prosperity of the people of Pennsylvania. Resolved, That we have the fullest confidence in the ability and integrity of JOSEPH W. PATTON, presented to the people by this Convention as a can didate for the important office of Canal Commissioner; and feel confident that if elected, the happiest consequences will result from a thorough change of men and measures connected with the public improvements of the Common wealth, and the introduction of that en ergy and economy so necessary for their prosperity. Resolved, That the Protection of Amer. lean Manufactures, and the independence of American labor, as they were the pol icy of the %% higs before and during the - Revolution, and their policy now : that the Tariff of 1842 was the source of unexampled prosperity to the country, and that its repeal has been attended with results detrimental to the true in terests of all sections and classes. Resolved, That if an addition to our territory be desirable, it should not be attained by injustice, nor Attended with an extension of slavery ; that while we respect and will sacredly observe every compromise of the Constitution, we believe that the interests of North and South, the welfare of the race, and the honor of the nation, demand that terri tory should not be acquired for the pur pose of an extension of slavery. Resolved, That true democracy de mands a jealousy of Executive power ; that a renewal and continuance of the power of a Chief Magistrate is corrupt• ing and dangerous in its influence and tendencies; that we recognize and adopt, as the expressed will of the people, the ONE TERM PRINCIPLE. Resolved, That the thanks of the whole nation are due to Major General TAYLOR, and the brave officers under his corn mind, for their distinguished conduct in the present war, in the victories of Palo Alto, Reseca de la Palma, and the storming of Monterey; and that we also view with a just pride the spirit and alacrity With Which the men of Pennsylvania have, iii nutnbers far be yond a proportion of the State, respon ded to the call of their country, and ral lied under its victorious banner. It is an earnest that the fame of our ancestors will never be tarnished, and that Penn sylvania is ever ready to do her duty.

FROM MEXICO. TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCHES ! [From the North American.) LATER FROM TAMPICO. arrival of Gen. Scott—Vera Cruz report ed as Evacuated by order of Santa anna —Troops marched into the Interior— ✓lttacks threatened upon Saltillo, Mon terey and Xatamoras. WASHINGTON, March 8-9 P. M. By the arrival of the schooner Delta, at New Orleans on the Ist inst., dates from Tampico to the 20th ult. have been received. Gen. Scott had arrived there the day previous. It was reported that Vera Cruz had been evacuated by order of Santa Anna, and that the troops were marched into the interior. Mr. Lumsden, of the New Orleans Picayune, writes from Tampico, on the 18th, that he has seen a letter from a Mexican officer to a friend, dated San Luis, Feb. 9th, which stated that Santa Anna was to march on Saltillo prepara tory to attacking Monterey. Gen. Ur rea, with 5000 troops, was at Victoria, and intended soon to march upon Mat amoras. Both these attacks, the writer anticipated, must prove successful, and says, we will give the Yankees hot work in the North while marching upon Vera Cruz. The writer is Private Secretary to Santa Anna. It is pretty certain that Santa Anna has arrived at Saltillo, and it is even re• ported that he had engaged Gen. Tay lor, but the latter was not believed to be at Tampico. . _ General . Scott has issued orders to regulate the punishment of all crimes committed by Mexicans or Americans not provided for by army rules, after trial before a military commission, ac cording to the laws of the United States. LATE FROM THE BRAZOS, Gen. Butler arrived at New Orleans— Gen. Taylor at Saltillo—llgua Neuva taken Possession of—Embarkation of Gen. Worth's Division—Loss of the Royal Mail Steamship Tweed—Sixty persons lost. The steam propellor Washington ar rivied at New Orleans on the 26th ulti, from the Brazos, which she left on the 23rd. General Butler came a passenger --he was suffering so much from his wound as to entirely disable him from active service. General Taylor had arrived at Sa lt►llo with Briggs' and Thomas' batteries and the Second Mississippi regiment on the 2d Feb. He has taken possession of Aqua Nueva, and all the troops are to go there, with the exception of a few who remain in town. There was no doubt that Gen. Minon would yet cause considerable trouble.— Gen. Taylor is very much in want of light troops. A letter from the Brazos, under date of the 23d, published in the Picayune, says that Gen. Taylor is busy making water tanks and collecting train wagons and pack mules. The enemy had left that part of the country for parts un known, but supposed in the direction of Vera Cruz. Gen. 'Worth's division had all am , barked, with the exception of the draz goons and the light artillery batteries: Gen. Worth had MOW' a day or two pre vious in thd Steamer Editht The AttreVida,arrived at New Orleans from Campeaehyi and brings dates to the 111th, She brings fields of the wreck of the Royal Mail Steanier Tweed, on the 12th of February, on the north east end of Alcarnes, Sixty persons were drowned. An expedition had been sent froit Carripeachy to her assistance. Ur. A letter front tt highly intelligent and well informed gentleman at Paris, says the National Intelligencer, dated Jan. 30th, published in the Providence Journal, say% that the writer was infor• med a few ctLys since, on very high au• thority, "that Paredes is in Paris, en• deavoring, but without success, to en tangle the French Government in the affairs of Mefico ; that Paredes gives it as his opinion that the Mexican war will be a long one."
