Gen, Harrison—Mr. Van Bureru Duty on Salt, The Van Buren State Central Committee issued a Circular to the different county com. mittees some time last fall, urging their friends to send Delegates to a general Convention to be held at this place, and requesting them to express their opinions upon most of the leading measures of the present administration—^particularly upon the SubTreasury, Mr. Benton's Salt Bill, &c. The mandate issued here, was obeyed, each conn - ty held its meeting—resolutions were passed, landing the present administration for its persevering efforts to abolish the duty on Salt. The opposition were abused for their alledged opposition to it. They alone were for abolishing the duties on articles consumed by the poor ;—they alone were for protecting the farmers, the salt of the earth. For the purpose of letting the people know who was, and was not for this measure, we give below Gen. Harrison’s speech in the Senate of the U. S. in favor of the same meas...

GEN. ioHN M’ELY A IN OF OHIO. The annunciation of Gen. M’Elyain’s determination to abandon Mr. Van Buren and to support Gen. Harrison for the Presidency is a most pregnant sign of the times. In common with thousand of others, this conspicuous member of the party; the Jackson and Van Buren elector for the district in which he lives, at three successive elections—has found himself compelled to abandon the faction into which the party has degenerated. Gen. M’Elvain was the early and fast friend of Gen. Jackson]; and so much confidence was reposed in him that, during the last winter, he was placed on the Van Buren Central Committee—which work he has now declined. We ask attention to the following letter,in which he assigns his reasons for the course which he has taken. From the Ohio Confederate. Mk. Editor:—It is not because I wish to thrust my own opinions before the public uncalled for, but because others hate chosen to attach importance to them, that I am induced to ask a place in yo...

YOUNG MEN’S NATIONAL CONVENTION. This Convention met in Baltimore on the &th instant. It was undoubtedly the greatest assemblage of the People ever collected in the United States for a similar purpose. To use an expressi ve remark of the President of the day, “IT WAS AN AVA LANCHE OF THE PEOPLE.” As may well be supposed, it is out of our power to publish, in full, the proceedings of this assemblage of the Sovereign People.— Our readers must be content with the selections which follow from that staunch Ham- son paper, the “Baltimore Patriot.” The Grand National Procession. It is impossible to convey even the faintest idea of the sublime spectacle presented by the procession as it moved through the city. All that pen could write, all that mouth of man could speak, all that the imagination can conceive of beauty, grandeur and subsublimity, would fall short, far short, of the reality. The excitement, the joy, the enthusiasm which every where prevailed, lighting up the counte...
