The Yankees Giving away the lands of the South. Late Northern papers bring accounts of the passage, in the House of Representatives of the Federal Congress, of a bill to give as homesteads to soldiers and sailors, without regard to color, "the confiscated lands in insurrectionary districts. " It passed by a vote of 75 to 64--a majority of 11. The chief defender of the bill was one Julian, of Illinois. In the course of the debate on it, Mr. Pendleton, of Ohio, contended that under the present law the forfeiture of lands was not to extend beyond the lifetime of the owners, and besides, that at the present time they had not required lands to be divided into homesteads. Julian replied that large districts were coming into their (Yankee) possession, which were to be sold for taxes, and there was no law (Yankee) on the statute book which stood in the way of acquiring the fee of estates. Of course! Mr. Julian is right. There never is anything either in Constitution or law which s
lected a delegate to the Chicago National Convention. Why not, then, on leaders of the Opposition, nominate Mr Vallandigham for President of the United States? He is a superfine martyr, ready made, filled to the brim with arguments against the Union, covered all over with a new coat of prejudices against his country, fitted upon him while in her Majesty's dominions, and, if possible, a little more battery opposed to Abraham Lincoln and to the loyal Democracy of Ohio than he was before Messrs Pendleton, Cox, and the rest, placed him before the people of that State as a candidate for Governor. We insist that Mr Vallandigham, having been endorsed by these high priests of the synagogue for Governor of Ohio, should not be pushed from his stool now that they are seeking for a candidate for President of the United States. It would be sheer ingratitude to desert him when he has once more entered upon his old stamping grand and bravely repeated his old treason. It is shrewdly suspected in

Fanny Lewis, free negro, and George, slave of James New, charged with harboring Peter, slave of Neil McCurdy, had a partial bearing, and were afterwards committed to jail for a further one on Wednesday next. Maria, a slave, charged with stealing an undershirt and some bacon and soap from W. B. Davidson, was ordered to be whipped. Forty-two negroes, arrested on Thursday night while participating in the festivities of a wedding party at the house of Mr. Pendleton, on 5th and Jackson streets, were each ordered ten lashes. Much of the time of his His Honor was consumed in listening to the appeals of the owners of some of these servants to let them off, some alleging, one thing and some another as an excuse for their being caught in the scrape which they were; but all their efforts were in vain, and the negroes were to submit to their punishment.
any terms. A large peace delegation from New York paraded with transparencies and banners. They favor peace. The outside sentiment is strongly for peace, and it is expected that a demonstration will be made in the Convention to-morrow. Pendleton, of Ohio, gains strength for the nomination for Vice-President. As a peace man, he may be nominated as a compromise. The politicians here want a moderate platform, and such will probably be adopted. The Committee on Resolutions is in sowded with eleven thousand people. Vallandigham, Seymour and Wickliffe were loudly cheered by the peace men. The McClellan feeling is in the ascendant this evening. Phelps, of Missouri, is spoken of as a candidate for Vice-President. Pendleton is stronger, in the hope of pleasing the peace men. Guthrie stock is going down. Kentucky being divided, a bolt on the part of the peace men is feared, but no serious danger is apprehended. To-night meetings were held everywhere, small m
he was while he commanded the army) we are unable to see. One of the means by which the "Platform." proposes to restore the Union peaceably is a convention of all the States. That, we took occasion lately to show, is an impossibility. The preservation of the Union is the prevailing idea throughout. It nowhere admits that it has been destroyed; and not admitting it, it of course ignores our government altogether. It professes a regard for State rights; and the men who adopt it, put upon it, as their candidate, a general who ordered the arrest of a State Legislature. What have we to expect from such a platform and such a candidate? Nothing. We can expect nothing from anybody but our armies and our generals. If we triumph in this campaign the Yankee mind will be disposed to peace upon any terms. If we fail, the whole North will roar for blood like a famished tiger. Our armies are our best peacemakers, and we expect far more from them than from McClellan and Pendleton.

ake the nomination unanimous, about one-third of the Ohio delegation held out to the last, and refused to come in until Pendleton was nominated for Vice-President. James Guthrie was the choice of a majority of the Eastern delegations for Vice-Pallot if New York had not changed. It was represented to the leaders of the New York delegation that the nomination of Pendleton would heal all the difficulty in the West and Northwest, and be satisfactory to the Ohio ultras. Guthrie had all alongd to be a candidate, and when Richmond was told these facts he said, " I want to elect the ticket; if the nomination of Pendleton will secure any more strength, then let us change. " Half an hour was given for consultation. The Western leaders and ny more strength, then let us change. " Half an hour was given for consultation. The Western leaders and those from the East consulted together, and the result was that New York changed to Pendleton. Pennsylvania followed, and he was nominated.
