ot the Wipwurii Convention. Mass Ttn.'ptiiiis, in
door?) and out, trtve lite order of the nUihl.
Thf principal ope was that tVld in front of
the Union Lca&ruo House, on Broad ftreet, wliere
a larirc and enthusiastic crowd was fathered to
listen to Hon. A. J. Fletcher, the Secretary of
btate of Tennessee, and other speaker? of equal
prominence aud attractiveness Tu proceed
ings are sriven at lenath on our inside pases.
The Lcasrue House itelf looked luatrniticeut
with its diMplay of gas and ruintinq-.
The meetiui; at National II ill, at which
Governors Hurnside and Ilawly aud others
spoke, tvas attended by an overwhelming crowd
ot people, who were uo less enthusiastic thau
their rival" at the L'-aLtie Iloiit-e.
At the Assembly Rooms, Tenth and Chesuut
streets, the New Jer.-ey delerattou likewise held
a nieetiiifr, supported by a laree crowd of out
siders. On the platform we noticed the dsvlces
carrieJ in the procession on Monday, prominent
nmoncr which was the pertinent inquiry; "Is
there any Mayor m Philadelphia '!'' The meet
ine was addressed by .veveral speakers, amonp
whom was the Rev. Dr. Newman, of New
Orleans, Chaplain ot the great Convention. He
detailed at length, and iu bitter but sincere lan
puiise, the recent mas-sucre in that city, and the
inioble part which President Johnson had
taken iu It.
About 10 o'clock the band of the Republican
Invincibles proceeded to the Coutinental Hotel
and serenaded the dlstintruished puesrs there
stopping. The compliment was peculiarly given
o Governor Curtin. After the music, loud calls
were made for his Excellency by the large con.
course gathered in Ninth street. In response,
the Governor appeared aud advised the assem
blage to adjourn to the Chcutit street front.
From that balcony on which last week stood
President Johnson, from which he delivered his
speech to the people of Philadelphia, Governor
Curtin spoke eloquently and earuestly on the
vast issues e:n braced in the pre-ent political
contest, aud the great principles of civil aud
constitutional liberty at stake. The illustrious
speaker was greeted throughout w ith unbounded
applause. A" he retired uraeut calls were made
for (ieueral Benjamin T. Butler.
In response, thutpallaut ollicer appeared, and
said that, hating never been a Senator of the
United States, bavins never bJen tin aldermiu
(laughter), having never filled all the ofll slu
the country from the lowest up, hacing hia ain
bliion as yet unsatislied. being no humble citi
zen (cheers), not having tiny ol -my policy"
that he was determined to carry out (laugher),
aud having a very bad cold, he would bid them
good eveuincr. (Uproarious rounds of cheers
were piven for '"old Pen liutler," aud the mul
: line who ponders the scenes on the street and.
in tho halls last evening, and then turns back to
the Wigwam and us appurtenances, will find
ample subject for rellec'ion. Harmony of action
was the one thing needful iu the case of the
Wigwam, aud this could be obtained ouly by
cutting off all debate, not only in the Conven
tion itself, but everywhere elne. There were
hundreds of orators In the city who were spoil
ing to make a spoech, and yet so stern were the
necessities of the case, and so absolute was the
tyranny wielded by Randall, Doolittle. and Ray
mond, that these aspiring gentlemen were forced
to leave the city as full of words and othing
iii:sb as when they cume, Iu the present
enqo the nccesiues are of precisely the
opposite character; the fuller and freer the
dif-ciission of the creat questions now Bgi
tallng the public mind, the nearer the truth will
tho Convention arrive, and the greater will be
the amount of good accomplished. The leaders
in the present movement realize this fact, and
they have given loose reins to any one who
aspires to lubor on the stomp.
In consequence of the vast crowd assembled
on 1 he streets and in the different public halls,
tho hotels were almost deserted, it was easily
li-civeied that none ot the ''creat trims'' were
to be lonnd, and that was an additional cause
tor the scattering ot the crowd which on the
previous evening was gathered about the Conti
nental and elsewhere.
Notwithstanding the comparative dulness
which reigned in the corridors below, an im
mense amount of woik wits done by the Com
mittees on Resolutions and Address.
The Commit tre on A1(1i-cmh
held a protracted meeting, which lasted far into
ihe night. The addre? already prepared bv
Jndtre bherwood, ot Texas, the general purport
of which was eiven in Tub Lveninq Tklkobath
of Monday, was submitted to the Committee and
thoroutrhlv discussed. Many portions of it
proved acceptable to a majority, but the address
lib a whole was not appioved.
Senator Creswcll, of Maryland, wa-, finally
iiu'horwd to prepare and submit this morning
the (trait of an Address, lor the approval or re
jection of the Committee. He was furnished
with notes by order of the Committee, embody
ing the views of the majority ; and from tc'e
atiil the accepted portions of Judtre Sherwood's
document, the Address of the Convention to the
American people will be prepared.
1 lie Committee on Resolutions
were alto in session last evening, but their deli
berations were rather more discoidaut thau
were those ot the other committee. The con
sideration of the various resolutions which had
been lcterrcd and submitted to the committee,
involved a lontr and siorc:y iiwusion, and
nothing that was particularly satisiaetory was

At the afternoon session of tbe billiard tourna
ment ot Tuesday, the playing was even superior
to that on the opeuiug night. Especially bril.
liaut were the games between Michael Phelau
and John McDeviti. nr. el Philip Tietnan and Mr,
William Wicks, the latter one of the inoit
expert uuiateur players in the State s.
The trial of skill between champions T.
McCarthy and U. Hani els, the former ot Fort
Wane, Indiana, and the latter of Boston, Mas
sachusetts, was tirst on the pre gramme. It
proved a very exciting: contest, boih olayers
exercising their judgment quite as effectively as
their bands, in their attempts to place the bills
as untavorabl y as posMblo for each other. Per
haps no game was ever plaved in which a
crealer regard ibr "safety" was manifested by
both coutistnnts, brilliancy being made alto
gether subservient to strategy.
The consequence was that the game, which
fluctuated considerably, oue rtlayer being no w
ahead, aud in the uext'monient the other, lasted
one hour and forty-three minutes, and the
average of the winner was con lined to nine
points to a run. The oflicial score, a part ot
which is given below, records that McCarthy
banked six times, nine times played delibe
rately for safety, uud five limes went into a
pocket oft' of a count; and that Daniels, the
winner, banked twice, played "safety" twelve
times, and once went inio a pocket off a count.

followed, Tieman made the handsome run, un
usually large for a full-sized four -pocket, of 170,
and averaged 31 1 in a string of 260 points, win
nine by 180. The game between McDevitt and
Phelau was a fitting tina e to the afternoon's en
tertainment, McDevitt making as his best a run
of I hi, and an average or 28j, and beating his
opponent 242 points.'
in the evening the attendance was quite larae.
and eminently respectable, und included upwards
ot twenty ladies. Tne great attraction wa the
game between John Frawle.v, champion ot Ohio,
uud Thomas Foiey, champion of Illinois. Up to
the last hundred these players ran along at
equal pace, the calls of the marker seldom an
nouncing a difference of more than eight or ten
points in their score. When the relative posl
T.oiiR were: Frawley, 372, Foley, 360, the latter
made his largest count, 05.
This eave him an advantage tbat he never
lost, and iu hi 58th iuulnc he win doclared
victor, the announcement beln hailed with
lively satisfaction Irom all patts of the hall.
Many a Buckeye was thus despoiled of his trea
sure, and more than one New Yorker came to
