A Flood of Glory ami a ltln.c of Light.
11 is but once or twice in a lifetime tlint a
person is gratified with the siehf, of such a
scene as was presented by the streets of Phila
delphia last evening. Tbe Him h ad scarcely pet
ere the entire population of the city appeared
to have turned out en masse into Chesnut street,
and to be bent in one common direction. As
you jourxcyed towards broad ihe crowd became
denser and denser, until, in the neighborhood of
the Continental and Girard, it blocked up tbe
street Irom curb to curb, as well as tbe side
walks. From tuis point up to Broad tlicre were
but few bare spots to be seen. One would have
thought that tncie wa to be a speaker from
every window and balcony of the crowded
But if Chesnut street was crowded, Broad
street was packed, jammed, filled to ovcrllowliig
with humanity. Tbe crowd on this broad
thoroughfare extended all the way from Spring
Harden street to far below Walnut. At 8 o'clock
so densely packed wan the immediate neighbor
hood of tbe League House, thai it would eeein
to have been utterly impossible to get half-a-doKen
more men within a square of the placr.
And yet, after thi, the various Ward proces
sions, the "Boys in Bine," the "National Union
Club," the "Republican Invincibles," and the
'Herman Republican Club" arrived by thou
sands and found standing room.
The Sct'uc at tlie League House,
even before the arrival of any part of the pro
cession, was exceedingly animated; and when
the glare of ten thousand lanterns was added,
It was one that beggared all attempts at descrip
seription. The police on duty in the nighboihood of
the League House numbered full three hundred,
and even then the Lleuteumt was overheard
inquiring where he could find two or three wmi
who were not on other pressing duty.
In front of the entrance to the League Home
was seated Herr Herrmann, at the head of his
famous Satterlee Band, discoursing at times tue
National airs for the edification of the multi
tude. The multitude would have been glad
to render themselves somewhat more com
fortable by making a ra':d on the space occupied
by the band, were it not fur the interposition of
a cordon of policemen, one hundred strong,
who kept them within their proper bounds.
When the delegates to both branches of the
Convention arrived in procession from National
Hull, a few minutes alter 8 o'clock, they wro
marshalled Into the space in front of the police;
and then the assemblage was complete and
packed tn every part.
And this vast, surging multitude, the like of
which, in point of numbers and enthasia-iu,
has not been seen in Philadelphia for years past,
was remarkably good-nature I. They waited
long and patiently for the speakers to appear,
amusing themselves the while by cheering for
anything and anybody that was uppermost in
their minds, by stralnlnar back their necks to get
a view of the rockets which every now and then,
traced their fiery course through the datkness
above, and by demanding at the end of every
alternate minute, the presence of "old Beu
, Shortly after the various delegations were in
place, Charles Gibbons, Esq., the President of
Ube Union League Club ot Philadelphia, ap
peared ou the main stand, and announced as
the presiding officer over the vast assemblage
the Hon. Morton McMichaei. At tht9 the mul
titude gave Tent to their satisfaction in a pro-
i longed shout of welcome. When this had par
tially subsided, some one in the crowd cried out,
'Is thera any Mayor In Philadelphia V
The err was followed by shout of laughter.
M1 taken up (4 once oa all sides. "Where's Uw
Mayor!" "Where's the Mayor'" shouted men,
women, and children.
Thereupon his Honor stepped forward and
made his most graceful bow, exclaiming as he
did so: "Gentlcmpn, I am here!"
Again the welkin rang with a shout of satis
faction; nealn his Honor bowed; and again, this
time reversing his words, so that they savored
of a Scriptural twang, he es;lalmed:-"Yes, gen
tlemen, here am 1 1"
Through the courtesy of Mr. Secretary Seward,
the world has already learned that Mayor
McMichaei went fishing last week, in company
with Mr. Theodora Tllton, of the Jmirpendcnt.
That fishing excursion was a lucky hit tor his
Honor. It ha rendered his
"One of thn few, the Immortal names,
That were not born to die."
We give on our Inside pages a detailed ac
count of the proceedings at all the stands last
evening, including the speeches ot Generals
Butler, Scheuck, and others of the most eittcd
orators of the nntion. They will all well repay
Notwithstanding the multitude? that were on
the streets last evening.
The Si'cuc About the Hotel
were no less animated than on the previous
evenings. The various committees appointed
by the Southern Convention were still in ses
sion, and much speculation wascurreut respect
ins their probable action.
It was generally couceded, as we announced
in our fifth edition of yesterday, that the
friends of unconditional sutl'raae would find
themselves In the minority in the Convention.
A larae majority of the delegates were heartily
in tavor ol the measure when they first arrived
in town. But since then the anti-suffrage men
ot tuc Noi'.hern and Border States had been so
earnestly at work, that they s-tood a good chance
uf carrying the day in the end. A major .ty of
the Maryland. Wet Virginia, Kentucky, Ten
nessee, uud Missouri delegations are fully com
mitted against placing the Oallut in the hands
of the negro at t ho present time, their only
forcible argument being that it would cause the
deieat of the anti-Administration party in the
coming cicctionn. A majority of the delega
tion from Alabama and Arkansas have also
j ie). led to this election pressure, and with this
accession to their forces, it is almost certain
that the anti-r-utirage men will triumph. The
insult would have been entirely different if
Philadelphia had not, been crowded, during the
isirtintrs of the Convention, with politicians trom
every quarter of tiic North.
With the few to whom was revealed the
The Committee on llewolut Ioiik,
this probability oi the defeat of negro suffrage
in the Convention was rendered almost certain.
The first session of the Committee was held on
Tuesday alteruooa at 5 o'clock, ana lasted until
nearly midnight of the same nay.
Notuing was aecomplisln-d at this meeting,
except to ascertain the tact that an agreement
on the piut of the Committee was altogether out
oi the question. Yesterday morning, at nine
o'clock, the committee reassembled, and re
mained in session until half-past two o'clock in
the atternoon, with a like result. Last evening
at half-pasi seven the Committee held another
meeting, which ultimately resulted in a
Governor Fletcher, of Missouri, was the prin
cipal spokesman of the anti-suffrage members;
while Governor Hamilton, ot Texas, led the
other side. Ou the side of Hamilton were
arrayed Mr. Grilhu, of Alabama; Captain
Itrjant, of ueorgia; Mr. Hill, of Virginia; Mr.
Duiant, of Louisiana; and Dr. Boyce, of the
District of Columbia.
The Hon. A. it. Jones, of North Carolina, and
Colonel O. li. Hart, oi Florida, whose final
nc.iicu had nrevioiiblv been involved in some
aoubt, by this time were understood to be J
against placinc tue Danoi in tuu nanas or the
l egro. All ihe other members ot the Committee,
uiiie in number, were on the same side ot tbe
question, and di'termiued upon yield mi? nothing
to their adversaries. After the matters befoie
the Committee had received a lather sto.-my dis
cussion, Governor Hamilton and Mr. Giitiiu,
lindimr that it was utterly impossible for them
to agree with the majority, bundled up their
papers and left the comiuittee-room at 10 o'clock
in tr.e evening.
Governoi Hamilton then commenced the pre
Duration of a report embodying ihe views of the
minority, while the majority were left to perfect
their own resolutions as best suited themselves.
It Is barely possible that the tide may yet turn
in favor of negro sutlrage, but with the present
odds against it, its deteat in the Convention is
assured, whether the vote is taken by States, bv
Congressional districts, or by delegates.
THE PROCEEDINGS OF TO-DAY.
The Convention was called to order at 1040
A. M., with ex-Attorney-General Speed, the
President, in t he Chair.
