The M«TnnnisT _finirar.H and Politics.—On the first day of the session of the _MetnodiBt VJonferenoe, at West Chester, a motion was made by Rev. J. Cunningham, to have a oommittee of one appointed from each district, " On the state of the Country." B«v. Dr. Hodgson opposed the appointing of this Committee. He thought that the Balvation of the country did not depend upon them ; they had better leave it in the hands of those who Lad ch&rge «f our National •affairs. He said if they (the Conference) must attend to the adjusting of the affairs of the Nation they would have a superabundance of business on hand. Rev. P. _Coombe thought that, having appointed a similar committee last year, and acted upon their reports; having pledged themselves to the support of the Union; and having their action, last year, misrepresented by the people along the border, thev would but involve themeelvee in new difficulties, by renewed action on this subject. Personally, he was in favor of a...

"OLD TIPPECANOE'3" _PROPHECX If, by chance, or in the order of Providence, there should be now living, and in political association with the Abolitionists, any of the old campaigners of 1840, of the "Tippecanoe and Tyler too " stripe, who built log cabins, ewigged hard cider, and sang the praises of " that same old coon " until he was fairly carried into the White House—if there be any of these old fellOWB left, we desire to call their attention to the following extract from a letter written by Gen. Harrison in 1820 to Mr. Monroe. It may tend to open their eyes to a fact that they would not believe, if it came from a Democratic source. It appears from this that Gen. Harrison held the same opinion with Webster, Clay, and all the truly national statesmen of America, whether Democrats or Whigs, that it was not slavery that would destroy the Union, but thai meddlesome, unlawful Abolition interference with it, would. Read the words of "Old Tippecanoe," and ponder them well. After a...

The N. Y. Eotning Post inquires: •' Who made these ' propositions for an armistice o* peace,1 the adoption of which Mr. Wood pretends to believe ' would have settled the matter' by All-Fools' day ? Were they made by Davis and his fellow rebels? If so, how does Mr. Wood know anything about them ? Has he been in secret correspondence with the enemy 1 Or were they made by some anti war wen here ? If so, who authorized them ? And what are the terms of the propositions from which Mr. Wood hopes so much ? If they are honorable to the nation, ' if they are such as patriotic Americans ought...
