Thf House held a formal session this morn
ing in accordance with the agreement of yester
day, for the purpose of having the tarifl' bill
signed, the law requiring that it must be done
in epen session. At eleven o'clock the bill was
not quite ready, and a recess was taken until
twelve, when the House wad called to order, and
the S|?eaker signed the bill and announced the
House adjourned until Friday next.
Thb First Competitive Examination
under the civil service ru es took p ace to-day,
under the supervision of the Treasury exam n
inp board. The examination was to fill three
vacancies of second-class clerkships in the
Third Auditor's office, and the applicants num
bered twenty-one, each of whom had one
seventh of a chance ot securing the desired pro
motion. The examining board will not proba
bly report the result of the examination under
several days.
Adjournment.?There seems to be no doubt
now that Congress will adjourn finally on Mon
day next. The tariff bill having been disposed
of, there are but three important bills requiring
action, and they can probably be passed in a
single day. They are the smulry civil appro
priation bill, now betore the Senate, which will
probably be completed to-day. Upon this, there
will doubtless be a conference committee on the
Senate amendments. The fortification appro
priation bill, already passed the House, has been
reported to the Senate without amendment*.
The river and harl>or appropriation bill, also
passed by the House, has been reported to the
Senate with amendments, but none of them are
ot such a nature as to consume much time in
discussion, hence It is quite certain the sewion
will be brought to a clooe on Monday.
The Ham Albemarle Prize Cape To
day. .Judge Humphreys, sitting a-Judge of the
district court, made an order that Commodore
E. Ltliov, Capt. Earl English and K. K.
l.ewis be appointed appraisers of the ram Albe
marle. It will be recalled that on the 2j 1 of
October, 18M, W. B. Cusliing, with a boat's
crew, exploded a torpedo under the rebel ram
Albemarle, lying near the town of Plymouth,
N. C., causing her to sink; thus openinz a
way to our forces to advance up the river. Sub
? qnentiy the was raiecd and used in the gov
ernment service. In July, sho was 11
b< led as a prize, and the appraisetuerjt,?7!>,:>!?4,
paid into the Treasury, but this sum, it is al
leged. was less than her value at the time of
htr appraisement, she having been dismantled
and stripped of her iron armor To obtain a
reappraisement Congress passed a special act
approved April 1st last, and to dav Messrs.
Carlisle and McPherson made the motion to
carry out that act, on which the above order
was made.
The "Edgar Stewart "?Important Action of
the Sj>anish Minuter.?The Spanish Minister,
under instructions from his government, has
filed at tbe State department the declaration
that the Edgar Stewart is an American vessel,
openly violating the neutrality laws; that she
has been engaged in aiding and abetting the
insurrection on the Island of Cuba by furnish
ing the insnrgents munitions or war; that not
withstanding her known character, the United
States government sanctioned her protection by
* w*r Tet*el, and that since she left Kingston
she is believed to have landed her cargo in
*!* c*11'' TI',on 1,10 United States to ful
fill the obligations of the treaty of 17M. The
Secretary of the Treasury has been notified,
ai d instructions will be Issued to collectors to
detain the Stewart should she enter any of our
ports. The Navy deprrtment has heard nothing
from the Stewart since she sailed for Kingston
?? ? J7tiLof m&y> un,ler the protection of the
U. S. 8. Wyoming. It is understood that t-he
suceeeoed in safely landing her cargo of arms
and munitions of war on the south coa;t of Cuba,
and up to the last intelligence had eluded the
many gunboats and war vessels seat in her
pareuit.
The Treaty Failure?Exciting Debate in
Parliament?The moving by l^ord Russel in the
House of iAirds last night ot his long threatened
address to the Queen praying that instructions
be given to her Majesty's representatives at
Geneva to retire from the board of arbitration.
If the claims for indirect damages were n ?t
withdrawn, gave rise to a loug and animated
debate. The Earl in bis address said that the
honor of the English government required that
it should speak plainly, and that it should say to
the United States "withdraw the indirect
claims or no arbitration." Tbe bombastic Earl
concluded his address with: '-The nation must
show, as it has before, that it is jealous of the
honor of the British crown; it must treat the
United States as it treated them in the Trent
case." Earl Granville defended the right of
the United States to place its own construction
on the treaty, and to introduce the indirect
claims. He also defended the commissioners
who negotiated the treaty, and very properly
rebuked Earl Russell for his sneering allusion
to the Trent affair. The discussion assumed a
wide range, and dnring its continuance the
members sharply criticised each other's lan
guage. After one unsuccessful motion to ad
Jours, a second to adjourn until Thursday was
agreed to.
Closing Sews ion of the Methodist Gen
eral Conference?In the Methodist general
conference in New York yesterday a resolution
was adopted holding editors of papers responsi
ble for all Matter in their papers, including ad
vertisemeats. A report made from the educa
tional committee denounces the efforts or Ro
manists to abolish the common sohool system,
and pledges the conference to use every effort
to make such schools permanent; opposes the
division of tbe pnbtic money among denomina
tional schools, and says the conference will re
sist all efforts to remove the Bible from public
schools. The report was unanimously adopted.
A resolution was adopted to send a delegation
of three members to confer with the Metnodist
Church south, wKh a view to harmonise all dif
ferences. Resolutions were adopted that the
local preachers mast hold a license for a consec
utive year before ordination. The conference
then adjourned lis* die.
Tei Latx James Oouoi Bennett?The
New York Associated Press yesterday passed
appropriate resolutions upon the death or James
Gordon Bennett. A special dispatch to the
Cincinnati Oatettt says: " It is reported that
Horace Greeley, Gen. Dlx, Charles O'Conor,
Frederick Hudson, Dr. Hammond, Oakey Hall,
James Brooks, sad Connery, present managing
editor or the Herald, will be pall-bearers at
Jamca Gordon Bennett's funeral, which will not
take place until his son's return. In the mean
time bis remains will be placed In a vault. It ts
asserted that Bennett left *200,000 in his will
toward the completion of the new Cathedral in

EXCITING SCENES.
[Sjxcial Dispatch to The Evening S'csr.]
Philadelphia, Jnne 5.?The first day of the
convention opens with tho relics of yesterday's
storm, the air being raw and chilly. The whole
city, however, is alive. Every delegation Is
this morning complete, and the hotels and
street* are overflowing with visitors. In the
vicinity of the convention hall, Broad street,
and the Union League building are very hand
somely decorated with flag*, streamers, ban
ners, etc. Clubs and delegations are forming
and marching up and down in front of the hall
headed by baud* and drum corps playii g in
spiriting airs. There Is such a pressure for
seats fliat the convention hall could be filled
ten times over. There are three hundred appli
cations for press seats, and only 150 have thus
far been assigned. Every jonrnal of any ac
count in the country is represented.
THE MEETING OP THE CLANS.
All of the delegations are holding preltmina~y
meetings this morning, preparatory to going
into the convention. The excitement is there
fore renewed over the Vice Presidency. A bit
ter contest is raging in the Pennsylvania dele
gation over Wilson, Scott, and Colfax. Tlie
first lead.- by only two votes over Scott, but t'ie
delegation is instructed to vote as a unit. M s
sissippi, reported for Wilson, has decided tar
Collax, while Alabama shows a majority lor
Wilson. In the Missouri delegation Hon. H T.
Blow lias just mude a speech denouncing the
Wilson syndicate, and bitterly assailing tlie
newspapers. After he finished, the delegation
voted M for Wilson, and 2for Colfax.
A "SYNDICATE'' OOLLAKED.
Col. Halloway, of Indiana, became very much
excited, and seizing McCullagh, of the St. Louis
Dtmucrat by the collar, declared that if Coltam
was defeated he should hold him and his as
sociates j?ersonally resi?ons\ble. It is quite im
l>osMl.!e to learn how all the delegations are
voting this forenoon, as they are so scattered,
but Col. Forney has just come in ana says
WILSON IS LEADING THE DAT,
but that Colfax will have a large vote. The
Illinois and Ohio vote for Wilson is giving him
a good send oft. The contest between Wilson
and Collax had become so close that there is
now a good deal of talk for a new man, and
Coventor Hawley, ot' Connecticut, isooming to
the front. The first ballot and probably the
second and third will show no result for the
Vice Presidency. The Press to-day estimates
on tirst ballot: Colfax, 286; Wilson,347; scatter
ing. *7. The New York Tribune to-day estima.es
Col fax 23ft, Wilson 3t>7, and the rest scattering.
The World gives Colfax 294 and Wil-on
347; rest scattering. The Times says Wilson
was ahead last night. Forney says the figures
now show that it Wilsou's friends stick he will be
nominated, but it U absolutely necessary that
tiny should not break. He needs every pled,: 'd
vote. Forney,himself, is lor Colfax, and I there
fore give his opinion.
MOKE ELECTIONEERING CIRCCLARS.
As may be inferred from the foregoing, Sena
tor Wilson's friends are working with energy,
and have flooded the hotels with circulars in liie
interest, and against Mr. Colfax. Tbev are id
tlrest+d to ?'Delegates to the Republican Na
tional Convention," "Soldiers ot" the Union
Ainiy," "Republicans of th? South," "Hep ib
licans of New England," "Republicans of the
Northwest," "Republicans of the Pacific
Slope," &c. A prominent republican tele
graphed from Washington last night the follow
ing disi>atoh, which is printed aud widely cir
culated to-day:
"Washington, June 4, 1872.?In September,
1870, Mr. Colfax published in tho New Vork In
dependent a letter from which the following is an
abstract. [Here follows abstract printed in yes
terday's papers.] After writing as above, Mr.
Col rax told Henry Wilson that under no cir
cumstances would he be a candidate, and upon
the strength of that promise Mr. Wilson allow
ed his name to be used for the position. Months
afterwards Colfax announced himself a candi
date for renomination. and is now electioneer
ing. Has his treatment of Mr. Wilson been fair
and manly? Is it essential to the success of the
republican party that it should nominate a m ui
guilty of such conduct? Why not permit him?
as he said he Intended to do?to close his politi
cal life absolutely? What national loss
would it be?"
The following was circulated freely to-dar,
and seemed to create quite a sensation:
??Delegates to the republican convention read
and reflect. Victory can be secured only by
wise action now. Pennsvlvanla aud Missouri
are doubtful states. A Pennsvlvanian on the
ticket will add thousands of Pennsylvania
votesto and take none from Grant. Colonel D.
Branson, of Philadelphia, would Hiiite the n .w
divided vote Of Missouri. Act accordingly."
COLORED REPUBLICANS POB COLPAX.
A delegation of colored republicans from
Washington are here working very earnestly for
Mr. Coirax, and have captured nearly every
colored delegate f rom the south for "-!m. The
Washington train this a. m. has seventeen car
loads,Including a great many republican mem
bers and senators.
THE PLATPOR*.'
The renomination of President Grant on the
first ballot, if not by acclamation, being a fore
gone conclusion, the convention will have no
more imj>ortant duty than the adoptien of a
strong platform; one which in accordance
with the spirit of the party from the beginning
shall be outspoken, tearless, and aggressive.
So far as can be ascertained from conversat ions
?ith delegate* from various sections there is
likely tol>e great unanimity with regard to this
formal manifesto of the party. The only ques
tion of prominence ui>on which any considera
ble diversity of opinions is known to exist is the
tariff.
THB TABIPP PLANK.
The Pennsylvania and New England delega
tions are understood to be practically unanimous
in favor of a decided protective plank, such at
was adopted at the Chicago convention of ISflrt,
which nominated Lincoln. The tariff resolution
then agreed to was in the following words:
'?That while providing revenue for the sup
port of the general government by duties upon
imports, sound policy requires such an adjust
ment of these imposts as to encourage the de
velopment of the industrial interests of the
whole country, and we commend that policy of
national exchange which secures to the work
i rig men liberal wages, to agriculture remunera
tive prices, to mechanics and manufacturers an
adequate reward for their skill, labor and enter
prise, and to the nation commercial prosperity
and independence."
It is suggested by several prominent delegates
that as the party won its first great victory with
this resolution In Its platform, and since the
principles therein embodied hare shaped the
poliey of every republican administration from
the beginning, the present convention could not
do belter than to re-adopt the same language
upon this important subject.
uvnn upou run.
Th?e Is alee a pressure for a revenue reform
plank. In addition to the delegations men
tioned as favorable to a protective plank, sever
al of those fraea the South are counted upon to
favor such an expression upon this subject. The
western delegates, especially those from Wis
consin, Io?a, Indiana and Ohio, are divided on
this question, but a majority will endeavor to
have it ignored or touched upon very light.
Wendell Phillips sends a labor plank to be in
serted.
a ocn raoa pornet.
Forney has a double-leaded editorial this
morning, which is already creating a good deal
or bed feeling. He demands the abandonment
of the republican state ticket here and the selec
tion of a new one, or else predicts defeat in Oc
tober. He says:?"It is endeavoring to pack

[Special Ditpatck to Th Evening v/ar.J
Philadelphia, June 5.?The Academy oi
Music was opened at 11, and by 11.30 the,Our
tiers of vast galleries were crowded with spec
tators. A fairy scene was presented. A flood
of gag light fell from among the banners,
streamers, evergreen archways, depending
flowers and wreaths that were tastefully ar
ranged. Every iortion ot the Academy was
tucked out in buds and blossoms redolent with
exquisite perfume. It is indeed a rentable
landscape from fairy land, canopiod with fla~3
and battle banners, and elicits rounds of ap
plause as the very triumph of the decorati/e
art. It Is a sight of brilliant beauty seldom seen
and never forgotten. The private boxes aie
almost hidden from view in graceful folds of
American flags; the front of the Prince of
Wales box is adorned with an oil painting of
Lincoln .while the box opposite bears on iti front a
portrait of President Grant. The apex of tiie
dome is encircled with miniature flag* and from
the center fall in graceful festoons massive links
of evergreens, which are looped up on the para
pet ol the family circle, The exterior of the
family circle and balcony are profusely adorned
with the coats of arm.- of all the states and ter
ritories which rest on fla^s. the intervening
space* being occupied by wreaths ot laurel. Tlie
pillars supporting the tiers are all g irnUhed
with flags artistically disposed. The president's
chair and desk are placed on a raised d.?ia in the
center of the stage. Urns of fresh cat flowers
flank the platform of the presiding of
ficer, and immediately in front of the
desk is a fine oil painting of Washington This
picture is encircled with a cordon of small
flags ot blue silk, studded thickly with stars ot
gold. Behind the desk of the president are
strung alolt two massive stands of white and
gold, each upholding a coronet of gas jets
shaded with glass globes. Between these sump
tuous lijjht dispensers is a row of ornate urn? brim
full ol odorous exotics. A parapet lour feet high,
green with creeping plants form-, ttie back
ground to this conspicuous position of the ruling
spirit of the convention. From the re ar of thi
ivy mantled partition, r,-e Up in tier on tier I ke
the seats of an amphitheatre, the chairs and

I nion. The desks are covered with white muslin
and arranged in three parallel sections with in
tervening passage ways, thereby affording ea-\
ingress and egress. On t?oth si>.- of the desks
are vases of rare exotics, and in the rear, en
circled by evergreens, is a set scene, repre
senting an Italian sunset. Ttil.s bajk^round,
as seen from the balcony or parquet circle,
forms one ot the most beautiful scenes ever be
held at the academy. Two band^are playitic

audience applauding almost everv strain, and
thus, amid the mingled roar of artillery outside,
and the music iuside of t'ue buildiug,"the great
convention came to order soon after 12 o'clock.
THE CONVENTION OrSNBD.
At 12:20 Governor Claflin called the conven

ration Of the civilized world. The promises
made four years since of progress and reform
have been faithfully fulfil" *!- in the guarantee
by the nation of equal right to all; in the re
duction of the public expenditure and the pub
lic debt; in the decrease of the public burdens;
in the improvement ot tie public credit; in the
establishment of the public faith, that no act
of repudiation shall ever stain tbe statute books:
and in securing peace and order throughout the
entire republic. You are summoned io declare
anew your fidelity to tliOso principles and par
poses which have brought such beneficent
results to the nation. We will not fear
that the people will desert those who have
been faithful in their high trust for other men
and other organizations; although they mav
adopt our principles and promise to adhere to our
policy. Let us go forward with confident faith
that our cause will triumph, notwithstanding
unexpected defections, over all combinations,
however skillfully planneJ, because in Its
continued success are ccnterid ttie best interests

No one in our day has been more causelessly,
more shamelessly viliticd, and no one will be
more thoroughly vindicated. The great heart
of the Amen au people beat? responsive to
truth and justice, and, as they hare tried arl
te-t?.d and trusted him; a# they know that hi
administration has been wise and faithful; as
they have *een the nation prosper under his rule
a? it never bef ?re prospered. they will stand by
ani <letvn-'.and. when the ballot-box give* thein
a chsnce to do so, avenge him. Remembering
the sore trials which, along with his fellow
soldiers, h j underwent during the war; his sac
rifices of ease and comfort; his perils by lav and
by n:g!,t; t he "xiM-ure by mean* of which "tho-e

Astoth V'ce Presidency, no doubt, gentle- i
men, there will be various preferences. Some I
of us will t fir'-t favor one, some another, b it
we shall .ill try to obtain the best man, a>>d
when the -hoice is ultimately mxlo, 1 trust we
shall all t'?.-el that we hare succeeded.
In repaid to the platform to be adopted, it is
not tor m>.- to anticipate, but, along w ith oth r
imi'Ortant doctrines, it will undoubtedly contain
the widest recognitionol human freedom, and
the clearest atlirmatiou of the duties whi -h
the government owes to the laboring roasts,
wherever and however em;lovei in town or
country: and with such candidates and sn<*h
a creed, whether we have to encounter the
decaying remnants of a once powerful party,
but now so feeble that it is piteous to its enemv
t. r succor, or an incongruous alliance of ill
assorted factions, with no bond of union but the
greed ot tffice, or all of them combined, we shall
go forth (onquertng and to compter.
The sentiment that the people had decided on
a nominee for President alreadv.and that t;rant
was an honester and truer President, and en
joyed more of the confidence of the A meric in
people 'ban any of his predecessor*, was greeted
with wild cheering, the convention rinug to its
feet.
TH2 EFPOBT8 TO DEFEAT COLFAX.
The desperate efforts made to detcat Coif it
are best illustrated by the following circular
got out this morning, and now being circulated
in the convention:
Reatont Againtt X^minating Co'far. First, he
is advocated before this convention by the
mo?o[>olies and corporations euch a?" the
Western Union Telerr-tph Company, the Resu
me r steel monopolv, and the public domain
railways and their ftister feeders. Second, he
does not represent the solid and sincere ?i.le ot
American public life; he smile* without sym
pathy, and flatters without aflVction; he has
been too well rewarded already at the namla ot
the party, and to renominate him is to give a
secc.id endorsement to false pretences. Third,
the northwest haw gone back on him, his own
section which OTight to know him best; he hv
no great state theie except Indiana by the grv e
0 Gov.rnor Morton, and Michigan, Ulin >>,
Wisconsin, Iowa. Missouri and < ?hio. the !???
tle-gronnO, ilo not a.-k his contin rmce on *ii.
ticket. Fourth. The induentlal and alert
ington corre*iiondenLs, many of wh<?m are
publicans, hare professional reasons for i: >
entitling him to their support. Is it well to pr <
voke this opposition during the next live muntli -
Fifth. He has entrapf>ed a hard-work- p
and watni-hearted republican, a founder ??f t(i
party?Henry Wilson?into standing tor tin
Vice Presidency, antl would now for a frcV.. a
pique, or for some va -illatine motive, humil
iate this worthy and able republican. I^et the
cot-iderat.ons be weighed.
srEEOH nvi.rsmiioc.AX.
The convention having completed its teui;>o
rary organization, Gen Logan wi< espied in one
of the sta^e boxes and was called upon by the
entire convention to come forward and sjte.ik
He finally consented, and came on the stage and
made a brief and enthusiastic speech in >up|>ort
of Grant, .n which hesaid that the president ha.:
faithfully |*rtorined the duties imposed up>n
him and <hserved a re-election. (Great ap
plause. 1 The republican party ?atd to h;m,
'?Well uore thou good and faithful servant, you
have been faithlul over few things, we will
row male thee ruler over in any thing."
(Great cheering.]
THE < 3AMPION OF EM ASCIPATfOW IK FAVOR <>F
THK HERO OF ATPOMATTOX.
The New York delegation then called upon
the venerable Gerritt Smith, who they said was
the oldest champion of emancipation living to
come forward and speak. A? Mr. Smith walked
down the aisle the band played "Hail to the
Chief," and the convention rose and cheered.
He spoke for fif teen minutes in warm term- ot
General Grant and the work which the repub
lican party had accomplished.
flj'WATOB MOBTOS'S PI'EECH.
Senator Morton, of Indiana, was then urge I
to speak. He appeared on the stage, and also
met an enthusiastic reception. Mr. Morton re
mained in ';i* chair while speaking of the prin
ciplesofth republican party, and said that it
was a worshipper of principles, not men. H >
remark, w. re received with earnest approval,
especially ihe review which he gave ot what the
party hedcccomplished in tour years.
MR.OBR C* f.SAKT. OBKKLEV, AND THE TRI
BCNB.
When S? nator Morton finished, ex-Speaker
?>rr, of South Carolina, was called upon by the
Virginia di egation to address the convention,
which ro>e io us feet and welcomed him. Mr.
Ott allude), to the arraignment made of Wash
ington, of .lackson, and of Grant. The fir?t
two had ou lived the as??ersious ca?t ui?on them,
as Grant \ ould outlive the calumny heapc I
upon him. It had been said that Graut had
proved a ft lure. He thought the country could
stand jrat fcur more years of such failure.
(Great laurhter and applause ] He alluded to
Greeley's?!. mand for the kuklux law an 1 the
Trt'fctiiic* avpp?.rt of the same, which elicited
hisses for t reeley and the Tribune.

reported Thomas Settle, of North Carolina, to
be president of the convention. He was unani
mously elected; Orr.of South Carolina, aad ex
Senator H? nderton, of Missouri, being hia only
contestants. At this point the confusion was in

Ei-Governor Pierpont, of West Virflnia, hu
seceded from the delegation to the couvention.
In a sj?ech to the delegates declaring his pret
ertnee for Greeley, he said he had hoped
when selected, without solicitation, to come
as a delegate to this convention, that
there might still be an opportuuitj to
save the party by the nomination of an
acceptable Presidential candidate, one who
would obey the laws and respect the popular
will; but it ta now evident Siat It was hoping
against hope; that this Is not a meeting for de
liberation as to the Interests of the republican
party, or of the eonntrr. but a meeting to obey
the exacting demands of arrogant power.
