THE DAILY NEW- Tne»d*y Homing,*. i state Convention. It is now generally admitted, that the OD- J position to holding an early Democratic State Convention originated with a class of psnedo .democrats, who do not desire the success of the democratic party at die next election no more than at former elections, when some -of them openly, and many secretly supported Bashford and Bandall, and Potter and Billinghurst. They, at first, evinced & deep concern for the welfare of the farming interest, and accused those who advocated the holding of an • early convention, of designing to deprive the farmers of a voice in the convention. When it was shown by the concurrent testimony of farmers and country editors, that they-could more conveniently attend ihe convention,about the middle of July,than at any time thereafter, until late in the fall, that ground of objection was abandoned, and another taken, which was still more preposterous and-absurd. They next assumed that the project of calling an early convention was devised by corrupt men for corrupt purposes, and published the names of two or three individuals who have never ex" pressed an opinion upon the subject in any form BO far as we know, and who are not npon the committee, and do not expect or desire either a seat in the convention or any "favors at its hands. The first pretext in regard to the farmers naturally Induced us to investigate the subject, and ascertain whether it was true or false, but the second only excited our contempt for its authors. When a democrat affects a dread of corrupt influences being resorted to by somebody, it is well to look at his countenance and his gait, In order to ascertain whether it is purity or scrofula that predominates in his system. There is now, however, no object! on urged to holding an early convention for the nomination of State officers, if tbe convention will abstain from the election of delegates to the national convention As the delegates to former national conventions have been elected by the State conventions immediately proceeding them, the election of snob delegates bv the next State convention will be regular and in strict accordance with established usages and precedent, and it will be for tbv convention itself to decide when it is properly organized for business, whether there is anything in the present condition of the party to justify a departure from that usage. It is eminently proper that the convention should take into consideration all the objections which may then be urged to following the precedent which its predecessors established and invariably adhered to, and take snob action in regard to it as tbe exigencies of tbe case may seem to require. Bat we do not admit that the supposed or real partiality of tbe members of that convention for any particular candidate is a good cause for postponing tbe election of delegates. If that is a good cause of delay, we might never br able to obriau- it so as to elect delegates as tbe predominating sentiment of any convention, will probably be favorable to somebody. Tbe nearest we ever came to being in favor of nobody, was in 1851, when the State convention elected a majority of delegates who went for Gen. Dodge for President. This is not likely to occur aeain We are however, willing to leave the whole matter with the convention, and will cheerfully abide its decision It is suggested in some quarters that the delegates eboold l>e elected by Congressional districts instead of Wng elected by the State at largt If the Presidential electors wre elected by Congressional districts, we would fall in with that suggestion. but sine* they are not, we cannot see any ground whatever for making the proposed change in tbe mode of electing delegates. The delegates represent the State in a national convention, as tbe electors represent it in the Electoral College, which is oompossed of States, and nol of Congressional districts. ntoraaxx IXSMPT FBOM TAXA.TIOH. 3.

I thing it is a great deal too lonij, but I am sorry to learn that in this State ih-rr has a recent eflort to extend the period of di*- ^ualiQcation beyond the perio.1 which is im- losed by the Constitution of th..- UuiteJ States. 1 know not what may be the fet-linua of the people whom I now address upon the subject, but this I feel assured, and 1 f, el it to be my bonnden dnty here openly to express it, that such policy ia detrimental to the interest of thia Slate.

J I have now, gentlemen, endeavored to discharge my humble dnty which I undertook, of recounting fairly to yon without disguise, a narrative of the Impressions made upsu my mind during my tour. There ia one characteristic of my countrymen which 1 have been delighted to observe in all my travels—exteuj- ing through 6,500 miles. During the wholn of that course, whether in the smallest village or in tbe largest city, I have found one characteristic, to which I have not already alluded—an undying attachment to the land of their fathers.

On the contrary, 1 find that the more firmly attachec yon are to the interests of tb» United States tbe more yon sympathies are given to Ireland with all her Bufferings, all her hopes, all hei future destinies. That sentiment of sympathy extends, I am happy to say, to a very gruat extent, to the great mass of American population in this country — sympathy for Ireland and its wrongs. That sympathy you oughl to cultivate, and so far from forgetting the obligations which yon owe to that country, the attachment yon owe to tbe land which retains the graves of your fathers, I am persuaded that you'Will best consult the interests of your adopted country and your home by cherishing that attachment. Mr. O'Brien will return to Sew York by way of Albany, and return to Ireland by the steamer of the 28th inst., from New York. UNO. A. SAVACiK, .11; Attornev and Counsellor at .NOS '.' A in.
