Klfttity-alxth Annual Convention of the
Protectant Kplscopal Chnrch of the Dlo
ctit of Pennsylvania. The Afternoon
Sctoxi Ycatcrilay Report, Etc
When the Episcopal Convention adjourned
retterday at 2 o'clock, the substitute as offered
by Mr. Welsh was still under discussion. Im
mediately on reassembling at 5 o'clock the ques
tion on the resolution was put, and it was de
After some further dlscnsalon and the rejection o
the resolution offered by Mr. Hunter, the resolution
offered by Mr. Sjpher, referring the conslrterat'on
of the snbject to a committee of seven to report at
the present convention, was amended so at to read
at the next convention, and was then adopted.
The report of the Board of Missions was pre
sented. The following figures are developed in the
paper: Receipts during the year, $ft,870'SJ; balance
on hand at the hegtnulng of last year, $2,!75-W;
total, $9,M.VM ; expenses during same tlme,f -(,3571)7 ;
balance In hand at date, $l,lss-C2.
The committee to whom was referred the subject
of city missions made a report, showing that there
were difficulties In the way of establishing such
missions, which were at present insurable ; that
the establishment or such missions would give um
brage to the rectors of the various churches who
claim entire jurisdiction In their respective parishes;
that, farther, the establishment of such missions
would be In opposition to a section of the canon
law. A series of resolutions recommending the oo
ject to the attention of the Bishop and clergy for
future action was agreed to, and the committee was
The committee appointed at the last convention
to take Into consideration the feasibility and pro
priety of securing minority representation (by
means of cumulative voting or otherwise) In elec
tions by the convention of this diocese, consisting
of Hev. Dr. Hare, Hev. Dr. Howe, Kev. Dr. Kudder,
and Messrs. George M. C'onarroe and Isaac llazle
hurst, unanimously reported in favor or thi plan of
cumulative voting in elections for the Standing
Committee or this diocese, and submitted the fol
lowing resolution :
'llfxoived, That in canon 7, section I, between the
word 'order' and the word 'vacancies' the following
1 'Every voter shall be entitled to ns many votes
as there are persons to be elected ; and he may cast
all such voles for one person, or he may distribute
them among any number of candidates not exceed
ing the whole number to be voted for. Any ticket
having an excess of votes over the whole number of
persons to be voted for shall be rejected.
' 'A nomination of all persons for whom It Is pro
posed to vote shall be made to the convention, at
least three hours previous to the election; and no
vote for any person not thus previously nominated
shall be counted, and no candidate shall be consid
ered as elected who shall not have received a num
ber of votes equal to a majority of all the persons
(of each order) voting at such election.' "
A lively debate ensued.
The Kev. Dr. (Jtod win moved to postpone action
on the report until the next convention.
Mr. Frederick I'raley thought the matter should
be considered now.
Kev. Dr. Hare deprecated any attempt to cut off
Kev. Dr. Goodwin followed In a long speech urging
objections agalnt minority repretentatlon and cumu
lative voting. He said that he leared the minority
might override the majority that the minority
might be compact and intelligent and cast their
votes effectively, while the majority might be divided
and not understand how to vote. This new prin
ciple would cause great electioneering and perhaps
heart-burnings. The minority would get together
somewhere and Agree on united action, while the
majority would not be equally prepared. He went
into some mathematical calculations. He thought
the rights of the majority should not be Jeopardized.
Time should be given for full consideration. He
would quote a (Spanish proverb: "Do not do to-day
that which can be as well done to-morrow." Besides,
he thought the minority were represented now In the
Mr. George JO. Conarroe replied to Dr. Goodwin.
He Bald the state of pleasing innocence which was
attributed to the majority was really refreshing.
The complaint that they should be overriden by
the minority was almost ludicrous. He felt no fear
that they would not know bow to vote. He would
trust bis friend from West Philadelphia on that
point. It was said that cumulative voting might
cause electioneering. Perhaps that was a new
thing. He, however, had been under a contrary
It was said the minority might meet together
somewhere In a cascus. If he was not mistaken the
majority had done that very thing this present
week. As to time, the subject was lntroducda
year ago. A committee, of various shades of opin
ion, had reported unanimously In favor of the plan.
The minority should have tte right to choose their
own representatives. The proposed change was
adopted last year In New Jersey. It was strange
that what could be done In one year in New Jersey
required three in Pennsylvania. As to the Spanish
proverb, he would reply with a good English one,
"Never put off until to-morrow what can be done
Rev. Drs. Rudder and Paddock took part in the
discussion. Dr. Rudder stated that the minority
had been recognized In the Standing Committee of
Considerable discussion pro and con ensued, and
the whole matter was then postponed for considera
tion at the next convention.
Dr. Goodwin then offered a resolution that tha
matter be referred to the General Convention, with
a recommendation that It be carefully considered
at an early day. Agreed to.
Rev. Mr. Drum offered a resolution giving the
rectors of the various churches the authority to pre
side over all congregational meetings. The motion
was laid on the table.
The following committee was appointed to con
sider the subject of the division or the funds of the
diocese with the new dlooese: Messrs. Hazlehurst.
Kickett, Thayor, Lamberton, Sypher, Robblns, and
The time and place of the meeting of the next con
vention were fixed at St. Andrew's church on the
second Tuesday of May next.
After the transaction of some unimportant busi
ness, giving votes of thanks, etc., the convention ad

santon, Kilpatrick, and a host of others were
there; and Governor Claflin, President Eliot ot
Harvard College, Judges of the Supreme Court,
and other officials were present as guests.

gratulatory, not political. lie commended the
widows and orphans of the war to those who
survived and were prospering.

Boston, May 12. The Cavalry Association
held its annual meeting to-day, General Pleai
anton, President, In the chair. General Sheri
dan was greeted enthusiastically. A resolution
proposing admission to the society of cavalry
men from all the armies of the Union gave rise
to considerable discussion, which was partici
pated in by Generals Mcintosh, Kilpatrick,
Sargent, Chamberlain, Custer, and Sheridan.
The latter said that . in improve
ments which had been made in
arms, it becomes necessary to make the cavalry
a distinct organizatiou, so it can operate inde
pendently of other arms of the service; in
other words, to make a cavalry army. He
thonght he saw while lu Europe the evil effects
of the old system of brigading cavalry with
different divisions of the army. The resolution
was finally adopted as follows:
Jiesolved, That the organization now known
as the cavalry corps of the Army
of the Potomac be hereafter known as
the cavalry corps of the armies of the United
States, and all honorably discharged Eoldiers of
any United States cavalry organizations may be
admitted members nnder the constitution.
General Sheridan was then elected President
of the association for the ensuing year, by accla
mation; Vice-Presidents, Generals Gregg, Sar
pent, Mcintosh, Greerson, Custer, Kilpatrick,
and Wilson; Secretary, Major Whitehead; Trea
surer, Major Corbin.

To-day's Senate Proceedings.
Special Detpatch to The Evening Telegraph.
Washington, May 12. The Senate remained
in executive session abont an hoar and a half.
Mr. Cameron moved to adjourn antil to-morrow,
and stated thathe thonght by that time the com
mittee would be ready to report. It was finally
agreed that the Senate adjourn nntil Monday at
11 o'clock. The question of the premature pub
lication of the treaty was brought np, when
attention was called to the fact that it had first
got out through the State Department.
It was stated that the publication of the text
of the treaty was done through some employes
of the Senate, and for the future protection of
the body these employes should be discovered
and pnnibhed. finally, a special committee,
of which Carpenter is chairman, was appointed
to Investigate the matter, with the usual powers
to send for persons and papers. A motion was
made to remove the injunction of secrecy from
the treaty and protocol, but it was defeated.
Pending the discussion of a resolution to allow
an oflicial report of the debate to be made In
confidence for the nse of the 8enate, to be pub
lished hereafter if it should be so ordered, an
adjournment was had.

Outrage upon an Anti-Popery Lecturer
lirutai Treatment of Air. Murphy.
From the London Standard, April 84.
A most disgraceful outrage has been inflicted
upon Mr. VV. Murphy, the well-known anti
Topery lecturer. There may be differences of
opinion even among Protestants as to the wis
dom or expediency of Murphy's proceedings,
but if he or any other man cannot deliver a
lecture within the walls of some private build
ing (to which people need not go unless they
choose; without the risk ot being mobbed
and murdered, the boasted liberty of England
is not worth much. Abont an hour or so before
the time fixed for the commencement of his
address on Thursday night, Mr. Murphy pro
ceeded quietly to the Odd Fellows' llall, with
the view of evading observation, and went into
the ante-room adjoining and on the same floor
as the hall, from which it is divided by a space
of abont six feet. The entrance to the building
is through a long covered passage leading fron
the street, and up six flights of stairs. After
Murphy had gone into the ante-room a band of
800 Koman Catholic miners from Cleator Moor
marched down Corkickle ten abreast. Upon
reaching the Odd Fellows' Hall, the band halted
and at once took possession of the entrance
to the building and the stairs. When
they did this there were only about fifteen or
sixteen of the friends of the lecturer in the hall,
and it wanted upwards of half an hour of the
time when the discourse was to begin. The
lecturer unaware of the purposeof those who
were waiting for him outside, left the ante-room
in order to proceed into the hall. The moment
be made his appearance he was seized by the
mob. He was dragged down the stairs by his
savage assailants, and struak and kicked
unmercifully the whole way. He was
then dragged into the passage, knocked
down, kicked, raised up, knocked
down again, and kicked till he was covered
with blood, which gushed from his wounds and
splashed the walls. He was then dragged down
the passage, the brntal treatment going on the
whole time until he reached the door opening
the street, and there, it is said, an attempt was
made to kill him outright, by a man who drew
a weapon for the purpose. At this juncture,
however, some persons interfered to save the
now insensible victim of this rulllanly violence.
They got him back into the passage, the outer
door of which was closed in the face of his as
sailants, and conveyed 'him np-stairs to the
ante-room. The band having done the work
which they had set out to do, marched back in
triumph to Cleator Moor, cheering as they pro
ceeded through the villages on the war.
A visitor to Murphy on Friday morning found
him lying upon the bed which had been made
up for him, unable to move. His head was
swathed in bandages, and his face bruised, cut,
and swollen. There Is a shocking wound above
the left eye, which bad been almost kicked out
of its socket. His body is all over black, blue,
and purple, from the kicks which he had re
ceived. He was hovering between life and
death, and it seemed as if the balance might as
easily incline one way . as the other. A large
number of policemen had been drawn into
Whitehaven to preserve order, but they seem to
have been taken by surprise by the attack hav
ing been made so long before'thc time announced
for the commencement of the lecture. .
Terrible Adventures of Two Brooklyn
Among future collections of thrilling stories
of shipwreck must be included the adventures
of two ladies of Brooklyn, who but a few days
ago arrived at New York from Buenos Ayres.
The entire shipwrecked party consists of Mrs.
S. A. Wheelwright, of Brooklyn, who Is the
wife ot the United States Consul at Rosarlo,
Argentine Republic, her two children, a boy
about five years of age, and a little girl. Miss
Anita . Wheelwright, a cousin of Mrs. Wheel
wright, and a solitary escort in Mr. A. S.
Doane, the brother of the first-named ladf. On
the 2Jth day of February last the party were
coasting along the southern border of Brazil,
homeward-bound from Montevideo, in the ship
Hellespont. The next morning before daylight
the good Bhl? was a helpless wreck on a sunken
reef. After a night of terror in the breaking
hulk a boat was successfully launched, and the
ladies, with the children of Mr. Doane, fortu
nately reached the beach in safety.
A tent was made of the ship's sails, and hud
dled into its narrow limits were the ladies, the
children, the gentlemen passengers, the officers
of the ship, and the half-crazed seamen, who
had already broken open the wine baskets of the
passengers and were making the night hideous
with their ribaldry and foul oaths. Stretched
upon the hard ground, with a few shawls and
light clothing thrown over them, the tender
females endured the horrors of a night that they
will never forget. They had saved their lives,
but it seemed that they had only bsen succored
to be tortured by the terrors of a veritable pan
demonium. At last the sun arose on another
cheerless day. The men lay around the tent
sleeping the sound sleep of the debauched.
Later in the day the sailors, having stolen quan
tities of cana or native rum, repeated their
orgies of the night previous, in spite of the
threats of the officers, who appeared powerless
to restrain them. Seven days was this frightful
existence borne by the Wheelwrights, when, oa
the 2tilb, arrangements for reaching Rio Qraude
having been perfected, they started for Vilko
Mattos, a-village not many miles distant.
In a bullock-cart drawn by five pairs of huge
cattle and seated upon beds of straw, they
slowly wended their way over a miserable
apology for a road. Scorched by the burning
rays of a tropical sun, suffocated with Intolerable
thirst, and exposed to the pitllees storms which
sweep over the country with such fearful vio
lence, the unfortunate females, with their
escort, at last reach Rio Grande after a journey
of over ten days. Here they encountered the
yellow fever at the time when the mortality had
reached over five hundred a day and the panic
stricken people were fleeing in every direction.
Tbey fortunately, however, found the bark

RAMIE VS. COTTON.
A Formidable Illral of (he Great American'
The Liverpool correspondent of the New Yoik
Shipping and Commercial List writes that
ramie is wanted In that market at t205 gold per
ton. As the culture of the ramie plant la the
South Is understood to have passed beyond mere
experiment, and as cotton is said to be too cheap
to be profitable, the wonder Is that the planters
do not turn their attention more to the first
mentioned staBle. Ramie culture has many ad
vantages over catton. It is a hardy and vigorous
grower, and Its growth is continuous, a crop
ence planted will stand for years without re
quiring to be renewed. H Is not destroyed
by worms, does not suffer front excess of
rain, and stands the longest drouth without in
jury. From all that is related of this wonderful
plant, It would seem that it is exposed to no
special danger in a suitable climate, has no
enemies, requires but little labor, needs bnt a
small capital to produce a crop, propagates
rapidly, yields largely, commands a ready mar
ket at a high price for all that can be produced,
and the market is never likely to be overstocked,
as the area for its successful growth Is limited
to a belt in the Gulf States. It requires less
labor to cultivate than cotton, the process
being similar to corn culture; and it is said that
one hand can take care of fifty or sixty acres,
after the first year. The only drawback
to unqualified success in ramie culture seems
to be the difficulty in separating the fibre from
the bark and the bark from the stalk; but this
difficulty will eventually be overcome. So im
portant is the cultivation of the plant consi
dered in India, a cotton-producing country, that
the Governor-General, a year or more ago,
offered a prize of 25,000 for the machine or
firocess best adapted for separating, also offer
Dg to buy the successful machine at 5 per
cent, above its cost, and to secure the inventor
a profit of 5 per cent, on all other machines
made under the patent. Here Is an opportunity
for inventors to turn their genius to profitable
account, and at the tame time to confer an Ines
timable boon upon the commercial world.
