Coa's Offlee.12 June, 1866,
The Philaaelphia wonventiOn.
The Philadelphia Age says: We are inclined to
regard the project of a National Convention.. i.
August with more favor than seems to be extended,
to it by some of our-party friends; and it is due to
candor and fair dealing tbat we should say wby.
No one will for a moment imagine that we have
the faintest wish or hope for the disorganization'
or modification of the great :party-to which we.
belong, either, locally, where it is complete, or.
nationally, where it soon will be. But with this
unwavering fidelity is entirely consistent a desire:
to see agencies outside the Democratic party,
which indirectly may promote the maintenance
and reassertions of the principles, which if even the
epublic rights, must be reasserted. A National
Convention of any kind likely to assemble, must
be important and an imposing body-as, being
the first body in which for five, or indeed six
years, the Southern States have been. represented.
Their presence here, after all this- frightful war
and bloodshed, after this rupture of all ties, social,
ecclesiastical, political, will be pictnresque. It is
worse than idle to underrate the importance of
such a council or such an event. Our opponents
feel this, and hence their studious efforts to dis
parage it. This, too, seems to be the idea of some
of our New York friends. For ourselves, seeing
no harm and much probable good in it, we do not
hesitate to say, that the consummation in this
initiatory plan of restoration, -or reconstruction, or
reassociatyon, will be matter to us, as Democrats,
of sincere rejoicing, and the Radicals may think
and say exactly what they please about this clear
and frank expression of our views. The heathens
will rage anyhow.
We favor this Convention. rhere Is nothing or
little in what we may describe as its preliminary
platform that repels us. The Convention implies
no derangement of the political organization to
which we belong, and are proud to belong. Inf
deed, it strengthens it. Let it meet. Let every
Congressional district of the North be represent
ed, and then let it, as it certainly will, give a
grand example to Congress, in session or out of
session, of admitting representatives from all the
Southern States, and deliberating with them,
their ateient friends, their brethren yet. Let
them admit them with generous confidence and
without the wretched consciencE-traps of oaths of
abjuration and supremacy. Thus 'deliberting,
we doubt not of the result in theory and practice.
The sight of the Southern men in council with
the North as equals will invigorate the truly na
tional spirit everywhere. Philadelphia in 186
will be as Philadelpia in 1787. Christ Church
bells will ring as they used long ago to do, not for
bloody victories in a civil war, but for the new
creation of a nation and the resurrection of a
Federal Union. Practically, a Convention thus
animated and thus deliberating, will, for the ma
chinery by which its patriotic designs are to be
carried into effect, rely mainly, though not of ne
cessity exclusively, on the great and compact or
ganization of the State Right Democracy, now as
ever the true supporters of the Union. - Hence we
wish the Convention sucess.
MINCE MEAT.-A man was found dead on the
levee at Louisville on the 23d, with one hundred
and ten stabs in his body. His ears were cut off,
both eyes were torn out and the body .was other
wise frightfully mutilated. The case is involved
in much mystery. The body is not yet identified.
Governor Patton, in his late letter to Congress,
makes the startling announcement that there are
fully twenty thousand widows and sixty thousand
orphans (whites) in Alabama, and three-fourths of
them are destitute.
Prentice says that the Southern States are better
represented in Congress now than some of the
Northern States, for the reason that non-represen
tation is better than misrepresentation. Tis is
literally and rigidly true.

Georgetown have determined to subscribe $100.
