PKOI'tHDIMiS OF THE NATIONAL
DEM K KATIC CONVENTION.
KRIDAY —AFTERNOON SESSION.
The delegates assembled pursuant to ad
journment, and the convention was called to
order at 20 minutes after 4 o'clock.
A resolution was offered by Col. Chas. G.
Green, oi M&ss., to the following effect: That
t!,e committee appointed to report a National
Democratic Committee also report the place
Ijr holJing the next National Convention, nud
the mode of constituting the same.
The house refused to eutertain the motion,
and the ctil lof the roll proceeded for the 27th
Before the ballot was announced, tliPre be

oi Virginia, Col. Green's resolution introduced
before the call of the roll was re-offercd and
The Virginia delegation had retired to con
sult. Mr. Leuke of that State, moved that the
mles be suspended, in order that the report of
the committee on the democratic creed or plat
form might be read.
Mr. Brown, of Tennessee, said it would not
be ready un.il to-inoriow morning.
Mr. Leake stated, in just?ce to himself, that
t'ue gentleman announced this morning that
tiie committee was ready to report. [Several
voices: "Nosuch thing."] He appealed to
the gentleman if he. did not say so. He un
derstood now that the report was not ready —
He knew not what changes have been made;
but last night they agreed to a platform, and
he would die by it.
The Virginia delegation returned and cast
their vote for Buchanan, as heretofore. This
occas oned much merriment.
.North Carolina retired for consultation.—
Nothinc occurred meantime beyond the break
ing of a lew window lights. The interest of
the public seemed to ue on the increase.judg
ing by the going away of the thousands of
sovereigns who weie unable to obtaiu entrance
into the densely crowded galleries.
The Virginia delegation again retired for
consultation,but did notdesert Buchanan.
The thirtieth and thirty-first trial were now
Lad and Indiana voted for Cass. The applause
was tremendous in the galleries and on the
Tennessee also cast eleven votes for Cass;
and this added to the delight of the friends of
that gentleman. The Cass vote went up from
33 to 64.
Mr. Barbour said it must be obvious to every
member of the convention that their proceed
ings had reached a point when consultation
among the several delegations became neces
sary. In order to afford time for such consul
tation, he moved that the convention adjourn
until to-morrow morning.
This was loudly voted down.
The thirty-second vote was proceeded with,
and as State delegations who had gone off
from Cass returned (heir fir3t choice, there was
terrific applause all over the hall.
The Kentucky delegation retired to consult,
and when they leturnei', voted forCass. [Tre
Ohio having given 18 votes for Cass, and
Missouri having come back to her first choice,
there were loud hurras, stamping of feet,
and clapping of hands. Massachusetts, nine
for Cass renewed the applause. The other
changes for Cass, were fallowed by similar
expressions of joy.
Mr. Nabers, amid the noise which prevailed,
a.-Ked leave in imtke a statement. (Cries of
,- No!" ".\\>!") He would simply say that a
large majority of the people of Mississippi are
in favor of Gen. Cass.
(The tonfusion, if possible, increased.) He
wunted the American democracy to know this.
(Long continued applause.)
Mr. E. Bnrksdale, of that State, asked the
privilege of making a statement. The cries of
"order," were deafening while the gentleman
essayed to speak, and the President, in vain,
to enforce comparative quiet.
Mr. Barksdale finally made himself heard,
to the detriment of his lungs, and replied to Mr.
INabers by saying that he had a letter from the
President of the Convention, which appointed
Mi. Nabers a delegate, in which it was said
that ("ass is not the choice of fifty democrats
i.i Mississippi, and ihat if nominated he would
lose the electoral vote of the State.
The Virginia delegation, who had refited
for consultation preparatory to the thirty
third vote, returned. It was supposed by not
a few that perhaps that they would vote for
Cass; but there was a disappointment in this
particular. The dense masses were tolerably
qu at when the announcement was made, and
in.mediately alter it was succeeded by loud ap
plause and outbursts of laughter.
Wearied and broken down, the Convention,
at nearly sev. u o'clock, adjourned till to-mor

THE DAILY DISPATCH.
Thk Massacre ii* California.—We ex
tract t'roin ihc San Francisco Herald, the fol
lowing account of tl»« massacre in California,
already announced bv telegraph :
We lenrn ol the killing of nearly one hun
dred and fifty Indians by a company of citizens
of Trinity county under the commund of Sher
iff Dixotu recently. It was supposed that these
were the Indians, who murdered Mr. Anderson
a short time since. The following is the ac
courtof the affair"The company that went
in pursuit of the Indians returned to-day, hav
ing been absent just a week. They had little
difficulty in following the trail. The foot
prints of the cattle which the Indians had dri
ven off with them, together with portions of the
clothing of the deceased, which they had found
scattered along the way, and were readily
recognized by his son, who was in the com
pany, showed unmistakable signs of the path
of those whom they were pursuing. But it
was necessary to proceed with great caution,
in order not to alarm the savage?, and accor
dingly the party generully laid by during the
day, sending spies ahead and travelling by
night. On Thursday afternoon, the 22d ult..
the scouts discovered the rancheria, in a small
valley at the base of three mountains on the
south side of the South Fork of Trinity River.
At midnight the company started from their en
campment, Captain Dixon having divided his
force into three parties, so as to come upon
the Indians from different quarters and sur
round them. When day broke, all parties
were in the desired position, and on the signal
being given, the attack was commenced.—
Each rifle marked its victim with unerring pre
cision—the pistol and the knife completed the
work of destruction and revenge, an ! in a few
brief moments all was over. Of tbe one hun
dred and fifty Indians that constituted ihe ran
cheria only two or three escaped, and those
were supposed to be dangerously wounded; so
that, probably, not one of those engaged in the
murder of the unfortunate Anderson, now re
mains alive. Men, women and children all
shared the same fate; none were spared, ex
cept one woman and two children, who were
brought back prisoners.
Such wholesale murder as the above, finds no
palliation or excuse. The massacre of women
and children, to say nothing of the men, would
disgrace any race of savages under the sun.
Mrs. Partington Again.—Mis. Parting,
ton has waked up again, and gives her opinion
on fashionable dis"ases through the columns
of the Boston Carpet Bag. The old lady is
quite happy in her satirical remarks and we
commend her to the notice of those unfortu
nates who are always "poorly."
"Diseases is very various" said Mrs. Part
ington, as she returned from a street door con
versation with Dr. Bolus. "The docter tells
me that poor old M rs. Haze has got two buck
les on her lungs! It is dreadful to think of, I
declare. The disease is so various! on« way
we hear of people's dying ol hermitage of the
lungs, another way of the brown creatures;
here thev tell us of the elementary canal being
out ofjjorder, and there about tonsors of the
throat; here we hear of neurology in the head,
there of an embargo; one side of us we hear of
men being killed by getting a pound tough
beef in the sarcofagus, and there another kills
himself by discovering his jooular vein. Things
change so, that I declare 1 don't know how to
subscribe for any disease now a-days. New
names and new nostrils takes the place of the
old, and I might as well throw my old herb
bag away." Fifteen minutes afterwards Isaac
had that herb bag for a target, and broke three
squares of glass in the cellar window in try
iug to hit it, before the old lady knew what he
was about. She didn't mean exacilv what she

The Jennings Estate.—This long litigat
ed case has been this week settled by the
Court of Chancery. The property lies princi

half of that amount has been divided in the late
decision. Two claimants reside in this town,

counties; but the only fortunate one living in
this district is a journeyman painter named

At a young men's debating society, some
where down in In liana, the question lor dis
cussion was : 'Which is the greatest evil a
scolding wife or a smoking chimney V 'After
the appointed disputants hail concluded the
debate, a spectator rose and begged the privi
lege ol 'making a few remarks on the occa
sion.' Permissiou being grauted, he deliver
ed himself in this way : "Mr. President,
I've been almost mad at listeuing to the de
bate of these 'ere,youngsters. They don't
know nothing at all about the subject. What
dothey v know about the evils ot a scolding
wife! Wait till they have had one for twen
ty years, and been hammered and jammed,
and slammed all the while, and wait till they '
have been scoldeil because the baby cried, be
cause the fire would'nt burn, because the oven
was too hot, because the cos#kicked over the
milk, because it rained, because the sun shin
ed, because the hens did'nt lay, because the
butter would'nt come, because the old cat had
kittens, because they come too soon for dinner,
because they were oue minute too late, be
cause they sut-g, because they tore their
trousers, because they invited a neighbor wo
man to call again, because they got sick, or
because they did anything else, uo maiter
whether they could'nt help it or not, or because
they did'ut do something else, no matter whe
ther they could or not, before they talk about
the evils of a scolding wife: why, Mr. Presi
dent, I'd rather hear the clatter of hammers
and stones on twenty tin pans and nine brass
kettles, than the din, din, of the tongue of a
scolding wife. Yes sirree, 1 would; to my
mind, Mr. President, a smoky chimney is no
more to be compared to a scolding wile than
a little nigger to a dark night."

Mavo, an old snd valuable citizen, dietf at the rf •
sidence of his brother-in-law, Dr R. H. Cabell, on
Saturday evening, after a long and painful illness,
which he endured with great fortitude and resigna
tion. Mr. M. was the only son of the late Colonel
John Mayo, and, for many yeafs, represented
the county of Henrico in the Legislature. He was
on" oi the best informed men of our acquaintance,
and was distinguuhed by his active habits and un.
tiring industry. As the proprietor of Mayo's
Bridge, which he inherited from his father, he was
widely known throughout the State. For the last
ten or twelve years he has been a resident of New
Jersey, though his time was divided nearly equally
between bis old and bis later home, the larger por
tion of his property lying in Virginia. He has left
behind him a widow, several children and two sis.

at whose house he died.
Chesterfield Cibcuit Couht — Judge John
B Clopton, presiding —Commonwealth vs. James
Reid, upon the charge of being present, aiding, as
sisting and abetting John S. Wormley in the mur
der of Anthony T. Robiou in July. 1651. This im
portant prosecution was closed at about 11 o'clock
on Saturday, the sth inst., by a verdict of Not
Guiltt, and the prisoner was discharged. Counsel
for the Commonwealth, William Finney and H.
Rhodes, Ejqs., and for the defence, W. W Day and
Robert G. Scott, Esqs.
Commonwealth vs. Wormley.—The Judge in this
case overruled the motion for a new trial on the
ground that the verdict of the jury was contrary to
the law and the evidence; but the question whether
the prisoner was entitled to a new trial on the
ground of misbehavior and irregularity on the part
of tlie jury and sheriff, with the consent of t e pri.
scner, was adjourned to the General Court, which
meets in this city in a short time. Thus it will be
seen that if theGtneral Court should not grant a
new trial, the prisoner will not be sentenced until
the next term of the Chesterfield Court, which
meets in November next. If, on the other hand,
it should grant him a new trial, that trial will not
tike place until the same term.

DENICOTISED S-HOKING TOBAC
CO.—Great Desideratum for Smok
ers.—The undersigned offer to the consumers oi
Smoking Tobacco, an article which has been pro
nounced by all who have tested it, superior to aay
preparation of the weed for smoking purposes
which has yet been offered to the public. The pe
culiar advantage of the article which they oiler, is
this: in all tobacco there is a concrete oil, Nicotine,
one of its active principles, and which is eminently
poisonous The effects of this principle are disa
greeably felt, more or less, upon the nerves and
itomach, by all smokers. The Tobacco offered by
the uudersigned has been entirely deprived of its
poisonous properties, whilst, at the same time, it
retains all its fragrant and aromatic qualities. So
mild and pleasant has it been rendered that persons
of weak nerves can use it without inconvenience.—
It has the additional advantage that it does not leave
that strong and pungent odor so perceptible and
offensive in close rooms.
