PmIL&DETHIA, August 17.-The Conven
tion adjourned yesterday, after adopting a
very able address and resolutions. It has
been a complete success, and the friends of
the President will carry all the elections in
this State, New York and all the North,
western States. I regard the Union as re
stored. The greatest harmony and cordiality
prevailed amongst the members.
Many of the delegates to the Convention
left last evening; the balance leave to-day.
The proceedings throughout were most har
monious-not a single event to mar the good
fEeling. The address, butnot the resolutions,
was written by Henry J. Raymond. It is
merely the resolutions elaborated. During
its reading for a time, almost breathless
silence was preserved. The President re
quested the delegates and spectators to
manifest no sign of approval, or to make
other demonstrations, till the reading was
completed. This request secured quiet, until
tae speaker arrived at the following
"And the 10,000,000 of Americans who
live in the South would be unworthy citizens
of a free commonwealth, degenerate sons of
an heroic ancestry, unfit ever to become
guardians of the rights and principles be
queathed to us by the fathers and founders
of the republic, if they could accept with
uncomplaining submission the humiliations
thus sought to be imposed upon them."
The entire audience then broke forth in an
unrestrained burst of applause, which lasted
for several minutes. At the conclusion of
this enthusiasm, a demand was made that
the paragraph quoted be read over again,
which warassented to, and again the ap
plause broke forth with redoubled effect.
The press club gave a splendid banquet to
the members of the press last night, at which
radicals and Southerners fraternized, and
high hilarity prevailed.
The correspondent of the National Intelli
Governor Perry, of South Carolina. was
the first speaker, and he was greeted with
most enthusiastic cheers. He dwelt much
on the benefit that must arise from practic-,
ing the advice of General Grant, by the peo
ple of the different sections mixing together
and interchanging Ideas. He said of South
Carolina, that she had accepted in good faith
the logic of events, that she had abandoned
atl idea of secession or nullification; and
claimed that he had told President Johnson
the truth when he said to him that South
'Carolina~is no less loyal than Massachusetts.
The South had unconditionally oarrendered,
called conventions, and -he had organized
the State, and it was the first of the late
rebel States that accepted the amendment to
~the Constitution abolishing slavery. South
Carolina had sinned, but that it wa:s only
Christian to forgive as we expect to be fora
given. The war had been for the Union,
but now the representatives of the South are
Taxation without representation was exer
cised towards the South. All they asked
now was to be restored to the Union. The
South was now poor and suffering from war,
famine andi pestilence. He hoped her re-ad
mission into the Union would lead to con
tinued prosperity,and that it would soon take
place, and that be would be able, when again
he stood before them, to stand as an equal.
The speech was received with much cheer,
ing and every demonstration of approval.
The same' correspondent gives the follow~
ing description of the opening scene we have
-- heretofore referred to.
A few minutes before the organization *ras
'egun, a procession oif delegates began to
file into the great entrance. It was anl
nonneed froni the platform that the deles
gates from Massachusetts and South Caro
lna were entering the wigwam arm%imsarm
-together. The whole of this vast assemblage
.astically. twas an impressive scent, .ypi
-cal of the ~rdial re-union this Convention
-was intended to accomplish. The extremes
bad met and had laid their sectional differ-'
ences upon the altar of a common country,
and had resumed the fraternal relations so
essential to the perpetuity of the Union and
the protection of the welf' of the whole
nation. The excitement and enthusiasm
'ere intense. The band struck up the spirits
stirring air, "Rally Round the Flag," fol
Jowed by "Dixie" and the "StarsSpangled
Banner." Cheer rose upon cheer when the
band commenced playing the Star-Spangled
- Banner; and Dick Taylor proposed three
cheers for the Union, which were given most
heartily. Immediately afterwards, Marshal
Gooding, of the District of Columbia, pro
posed three cheers for the Red White and
* Blue, which were responded to with a will.
Many of those present were affected to tears.
Northern men and Southern men embraced'
-'each other and sobbed upon each other's
breasts. It was. truly an affecting and ros
~. ,mantic incident. From this moment, it was
evident that 'the Convention was a grand
success, and that its perfect harmony was
Insured. Order was restored only by the
the commencement of the grave proceedings
for which the Convention was assembled,
Hon. R. C. Walthrop, of Massachusetts,
-formerly Speaker of the House in Congress,
has written one of the best letters on the
Convention which has appeared. He endorses
she movement heartily, and agrees with
rightfully in the Union. Mr. Winthrop
"It is vain to offer test oaths to others if
we fall to fulfill our own oaths. The necess
sities of a state of war may be an excuse for
-many irregularities, both legislative and ex
ecutive; but now that, by the blessing of
God, a state of peace has been restored to us,
we are entitled to the Constitution and the
Union in all their legitimate authority and
extent. Nothing less than the whole Consti
tution and the whole Union ought to satisfy
us. For one, I should despair of the re
S storation of law and order in ten Southern
States, and even of the maintenance of our
own national credit, if there should fail to
be exhibited at Washington something of
that scrupulous adh~erenee to the Constitution
and the laws which characterized the earlier
days of the Republic. Nor could antyhing,
in my judgment, be of'more influence upon
the future career of our country than that
Congress should even seem to be holding in
abeyance any provisions of the Constitution
until they shall have been changed, under
duress, in order to suit the opinions or secure
the interests of a predominant party. Against.
'such a course of proceeding, I trust the Con
vention at Philadelphia will put forth a
seasonable and effective protest."
Queen Emma, of the sandwich Islands, recent
ly paid a visit to the President. She visits this
efuntry seeking assistance for the church in her
domimions. Shie is said to be a very handsome,
intelligent and dignifed personage.

We learn that J. W. Coon, charged with
being implicated in the murder of Mr. Lem,
nel Lane, was brought before Chancellor
Carroll,in Columbia last week, upon a writ of
habeas corpus. He was allowed to enter

MURDERER'S AERESTED.-Lun Jones,
and Belt Cline, freedmen, formerly of this
place, were arrested last week, the former
in Columbia, the latter at Petersburg, Va.
We learn that they have confessed to the
murder of Mr. Walker, and have been taken
to Chester. The former had Mr. Walker's
watch in his possession.
We notice with pain and sorrow the arrest
of four of our citizens on last Thursday, by a
detachment of cavalry, viz Capt. Thos. Pays
singer, Edward Peterson, John Mathis and
H. Harris. What the charges we know not;
that they can be of a serious character we
cannot readily believe. From this place they

where they remained until Saturday morning
from whence they were removed to Charles.

day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer, and
an earnest invitation given to this commu

ments of such an occasion. We trust that
it may not only be observed in this town
but through the district, and that all our
people may make a sincere acknowledgment
of their humility. One short day given to
devotion and abstinence; one day from the
cares and duties of business will never be
felt, except in the good which will result
from the knowledge of having done so small
a duty. We hope therefore that all places
of secular business will be closed, and that
all will unite in t1lis mple form of ,worship
and atonement. Remember, Friday the 31st;
let business appointments be made with this
end in view. -_____

ATTEMPTS AT ROBBER.-We -are in

about 4 miles south of the town was arouset
one night last week by a party hailing hit
from liis orchard. Looking from a. window
he asked, what was wanted, and received it
reply from one, that he had a letter for hirt
from the Post master, and wanted an answer
He was thanked for his kindness, in taking
so much trouble iu walking so far (having
admitted that he was on foot,) but for pru
dential considerations was requested to thro'
the letter over the fence. The party retirec
a short distance and fired a gun, which wai
returned by one of Mr. Elmore's freed hands
In the meantime Mr. E. came down anm
made his firearms ready, prepared for furtel
action: but after a few more shots from hi~

object must have been plunder, perhap
murder. It was impossible to see, whethe

IAn attempt was also made a few night
