The following resolution was presented by the Hun. Thomas Randall, and unanimously adopted.

Major Ward took occasion lf mention the circumstances lo the Convention, thai, during his late visit to Baltimore,' he had the privilege of an interview with the patriot Henry Clat, who was then slowly sinking into the sleep of deftih and that this distinguished man, whom the country now mourn, gave among bis last expressions, bis testimony, to the integrity, patriotism and virtue of Wjm-ielb ScoTT.

The Florida and Alabama' railroad bill was again taken up, which has been so altered as to grant- the right ol -way to railioadt companiesgrnarally, and authorizing them to take material for the construction of railroads for public lands on the line. Tbe amendments that had been proposed were agreed to, and a substitute was subsequently moved, pending w hicb the morning hour expired. Thursday's Proceedings. The bill granting the right of way to rail and plank roads, was again takeu up. Mr. Stuart, of Mich., submitted a bill as a substitute, which was objected to; and the bill as amended, was read a third time and passed. By a notice w hich we publish to-day, it will be teen that Col. Ward, the Whig candidate for Governor, and Major Finleyt tbe Whig candidate for Elector for the Western District, are to address th people of Escambia at Petisacola on Tuesday 17th August, and Navy Yard on Wednes-day the 19th. With tho exception of Mr. Cabell (and we yet hope to tee him on the righl track) the "Whig have been peculiarly fortunate in the selection of leaders to conduct, tbe campaign. Of Col. Ward it it unnecettary to speak ; ba it well known throughout the State, and enjoys a high reputation as an effective speaker. Major F'nley it only lets extensively known from the more limited lime he has resided in the State ; a graceful speaker an astute reasoner, of winning manner that cause most be bad indeed w hicb will not succeed wjib such an advocate.

Mr. Cuixll stud the Whig State Conveutlou. Ti euqiricg iniuds lew things are mote interesting than lo trace the evolutions that politicians sometimes nuke iu their career. This is peculiarly applica ble respecting the recent course our Whig Representative has deemed proper lo pursue, iu regard to the nomination of Gen. Scott by the Wbig National Con. tention. Thar Convention was mada up o! tbe concentrated intelligence of ihe United States. Men, who understood the political pulsation ofthe couutry, as well as a physician doe's that of a patient. A platform of principles was adopted' betore he candidate was selected ; embodying a series of resolutions upon ibe subject ul the compromise superior to those embraced by the Democratic party, aud inbnuely superior lo anything the Southern delega. lion expected, or demanded. Now, what does Mr. Cabell mean by his recent erratic course ? particularly in the letter written to a inembwr of the recent Whig State Convention, wheieiu it is asserted be " kUI ttot suyfort" the Whig nominee (Geu. Scott) tor the presi dency I 1 J. it withio. tha jtruioaLhujuau probability thai Geo. Scott," if elected, will enact the Tyler game, and prove re- creant to the principles of his election? thereby sully au illustrious reputation that. looms out in bold relief in ihe history ol our country for patriotism, unsullied honor, and integrity. What will Mr. Cabell do- where will be go how can he dl'nd bis position before tbe Natiwiial Whig party ofl'loiida. The feeling is almost unanimous in thi, section of the State, that if elected P?esi dent, Gen. Scott will not allow the phren lied touch ot free soil demagogues to in fringe upon the sacreduess ot the Com promise. But in the very face ol the pi inciples adopted by tbe Baltimore Con ventiun, and accepted ly joii. Scott- as forming tho basis of his election, Mr. Ca t makes the flimsy assertion he. fears tTiattirr-Tefejafl ' soldier, u ha Is acclir tomed to cmiimmid and " lead" olhtrs, will be governed and led by such men -at Sewar'd. Gen. Scott was identified with the. history of hia country lotight lor the perm, nency of the Union-elevated the nation's character throughout the world, long be. fore Mr. Seward was released from his swaddling bands. We would rather go it blind f.r the " llro of Lundy's Lane ' htn advocate the flection of that microsi-opic character that renowned fainting hero, Gen. Pi-rce ' who only smelt gunpowder as it was waf-led by the breeze from tbe distant field of battle. But Geo. Pierce is not the immaculate statesman "the Noithem man with Southern principles" usually represented, nor free from the contaminating influences of Abolitionism as is evinced by the following extract : "Gen. Pierce, whilst delivering a speech al New Boston on I ho second day of January last, was interrupted by Ihe question: Do you regard ihe' features of the lugilive slave law as Consistent w ilb common law." lo which G-n. Pierce replied : " If I must answer that question, I say no, I do not. have bren asked if I like this fugitive slave law; I answered no, I loathed it. I have a most rcv.rftine feeling utthe giving up of a slave the law is opposed to humanity. Gen. Pierce w as then asked, " if it was not opposed to right as well as humanity." Ho an swered : " Yes : il is oonosr.d ta mml rhht." 1 1 I be above account of Gen- Pierce's speech it laker Irom ihe Washington' Republic, which paper take it Irom the IndepeAdent Democrat, published at Con cord, N. IL, Ibe residence, I believe, of Uen. Fierce. We hope Mr. Cabell will review bis position, and eventually give full sway to his affection for the tupremacy of Whig principles; disinthral himself from the in fluence of such men as Toombs, and Stc-pheus, ofGeorgia, who have their own peculiar, selfish motives iu resisting Gei Scott.' We want auotli.r Whig President, and we want to tee'.Mr. Cabell returned again to Congrett at a consistent Whig Repre. tentative from thi State; but ardently as wo have heretofore supported him, we must proclaim in all cand ir, that the Whigs of West Florid will not rally on hiu. in his present position. He iri.7 gam a single Democratic vote in thus iso- lating himself from bis pany ; on the con-irary, sufficient number of Whigs will withdraw from him to guarantee the elec lion of hit oppoiieut.
