Tho Convention assembled In JANKEV'S Hall, and I ]

Ho mounted tho platform bravely, however, ami
aftor staling that bo had just arrived, and would
bo propared in a day or two to addross a mass
nico: lng, or tho Convention itself, if it waa BO de?
sired, launched briefly upon his tin me.
Ho congratulated tho Convention on its appear?
ance ; said that for tho Aral limo in tho history of

South Carolina, and ho hoped that what waa dono
would find an echo In tho heart of ovory loyal man
North and South. Ho behoved they como hero

Thoy woro hero to diecuas, nut mon, but measures.
Tho conflict botwoon individ?ala had conned, but
tho war of ?dean still prog reseed. In all Cobbora- |
i tonn thia fact waa lo be conatautly horno in mind.
Radicalism waa not understood. If to bo radical
waa to ohcrinH hato, ho was not auch a mon ; tnt
if radicalism or ropubllcaniam consista in tho
mainlcnanco of tho' principien of juatlco mid
equality to all moa and tho divino principios of I
