Convention, Sixty four of the northern delegates having seceded, including the Xew York friends of “Live Hoax George,” Fillmore was nominat ed without difficulty a single delegate from some of the States being allowed to cast its ent-ir vote, ihe Xew Hampshire delegates, Messrs Colby and Emery, having violated their mid-night K. X. oath to abide by the deci-ion of the majority, and bolted, their places were temporarily supplied by a couple of i.utsiders, who voted with the south, and were h-udly cheered therefor. Its bsequent ly turned out that these substitutis were New Yorkers So the southern K s’s. cheered for nothing. arson Brow low moved that Gen Call, a southern, seceder, be “taken back into the church;” and upon the general’s re appearing, the parso stepped out into the floor and gave him a fraternal hug, to the great deiigi.t oi the assembled K. N’s. Sub sequently “Andrew Jackson Do ■nelson” was nominated for \ ice Piesident (upon the re commendation of A. 11. 11. Stewart, of Vir ginia, formerly one of Fillmore’.- cabinet secre time-,) over iieury J Gardner and others.— Srewart cooly claimed for Douclson, who was once General Jackson’.-private secretary, the honor of having originated and carried out the principal asurcs of Old Hickory’s ad mini-trati- n ! Donelson made a speech, and as-erted that Gen Jackson was a full blooded K X. because he (I) j never heard him say nothing against “American principles !” Then Parson Brownlow was called out to endorse the nomination-, and expressed his belief that with Mr. Fillmore and hi- (Mrowiilow,sJ ‘pa triotic, fat, greasy friend,”,) looking at Donel son i tney could so use up the democrats that there would not be a grease sp"t left. n eoiiclus.ou, no advised tne members of the convention ‘to say liugeu and clear out!’ Upon this intimation the assemblage seemed to h ivt* acted, and very soon after it adjourn ed.

Extract from £..ortl Derby s remarks on the Queens Speeds. I should like to have known what is going on at Teheran and at Washington. (Hear, hear.) I should have thought that as our relations with the former court, more especial ly at the present moment, are of some impor tance, reference has taken place, and which, I understand, is of such a character tint our Ambasador has withdrawn. Then, again, what are our relations with the Cabinet of, Washington, where it is reported the retire ment of our Minister is demanded. (Ileare, hear.) I should have thought that two circumstance to merit, at events, a passing notice in the speech ; and that if her Majesty had not been enabled to inform us, as on for mer occasions, that our relations with other Powers were upon a friendly and amicable footing at least w.e might have been led to amagine what danger, or security from danger existed of any rupture of our amicable rela tions with Persia and America. 1 hero is no country in the world with which we are bound by such tics of close and intimate relationship—none with wh vh our commercial relations, exclusive of the tics o p common language and laws, are so vast and important —none with which a war would be so mutually suicidal as with the United Sates. (Hear ) I do not suppose that all the language which we see used by the American press, and which would be wholy unworthy of the dignity of a great country, is adopted by the American Government ; but if the Govern ment have made the representations which they are reported to have made, then I think our relations with America arc most threat ning, not to say most alarming, With regard to what is called the Clayton- Bulwer treaty, relating to Central America, so far as I am able to judge, I agree with Her Majesty’s Government in the explanations they have given , nor, looking to that treaty and to the circumstances which preceded it,can 1 conceive that a different construction can be put upon it from that put upon it by her Majesty’s government. (Hear, hear.] A dispute concerning the interpretation of a treaty is not, however, me which ought to excite great alarm as to tiie consequences, it forms a most fitting subject for reference to the arbitration of a iriendly power, and 1 trust there can be no apprehension of the rupture of friendly relotious on this account. (Hear, hear.) 1 wish I could speak as confidently with regard to the other questions of dispute, because, although 1 think every amende and every apology have been made by her Majesty’s government, I coimot conceal from myself ■he fact that the government of tiie Un.ted States have, in the first place, just and reasonable cause of complaint. (Hear. When the Foreign Enlistment bill was under discussion, one objection to that, measure was, selves in constant disputes with those Powers wh >se subjects, without tin ir concur rence, we n ere seeking to enlist ; and say what you plea e, and guarded as may be the language of the bill, it is indisputable to my mind that in carrying out the provisions -f that Foreign Enlistment bill, if you did not infringe upon the letter, you have proceeded in opposition to the spirit of the municipal law of the United States. (Hear, hear.) I deep ly regret that the government should have been betrayed into such an error, and 1 do not vvouder that at a period of great popular excitemnr it should have ar -used angry feeling and an insult on the part of perha, - the most su-ceptibie nation in the w-r;d At the same time I will e tcrlain—l won't Ray confidence. but hope founded on the sound co.muon sense of that great and intel ligent community, that when the first feelings of indignation and of anger have passed away when the cause for which agitators are striving to inflame the public mind s!i 11 have ceased to exist— they will camly and deliberate ly consider the unintnational character of the offence in the first place given, and that full and ample apology which I understand her Majesty’s government lias made to the of fended dignity of the United States and which. I think any great nation, only conscious of its own strength, would accept as a sufficient reparation for the wrong done. (Hear, hear.; 1 therefore venture to entertai the hope that in that quarter more friendly relations will exist, though at Ihe same time I must say, tiiat I think her Majesty’s Government would have acted more wisely with a view to soo he any aimry feeling, and to pave the wav to more friend.y relations, if they had inserted in her Majesty’s speecn a conciliatory para graph applying to the people of that great country, instead of passing over the subject in a contemptuous way, as though it ere unwor thy a moment’s consideration.

The Royal Mail Steamer Africa has arrived at Halifax, bringing Liverpool advices to the 23d ult. —three days later than the Baltic.

General Cass appeared in his seat in the Senate on the 26th ult.. says the Washington Un ion, having recovered from his late severe injury. There was much gratification manifested by the Senators upon seeing this venerable statesman again at his post. Messrs Yi£uderbilt, No. 185 Suffolk Street, says of Dr. M‘JLane’s Celebrat ed liver Pills; Being unwell, and not knowing whether it proceeded from derangement of the liver or merely hysterics, I was persuaded to purchase a box of Dr. M’Lane’s Celebrated Liver Pills, and before I had used them all, was entirely relieved, lam now enjoying perfect health, and cheerfully recommended Dr. M’Lane’s Celebrated Liver Pills to all similarly afflicted.

Reynolds, aged two years one month and twenty foul days. “Whom the Gods love, die young.” This was truly a child of promise. He manifested in his affliction a patience and fortitude which would have done credit, to one of maturer years.— Ilis heart seemed to be the seat of the affections. Like the tender blosson of early spring, he opened the ten drils of hope to the sun of promise, a blighting frost came, and the flower was nipped in the bud. ‘This mortal has put on immortality,” and the tender babe thus rudely torn by the hand of death from the arms of an affectionate mother,now flutters an angel, around the Throne of God. “Early, bright, chastens morning dew. Tie sparkled was exhaled and went to Heaven.” COMMERCIAL. KBIFFIS MARKET. Cotton—The Africa's accounts have had no material effect on our market. We quote to day as extremes 7 to iff;.
