Ibo great spirit of unrest has been appeased,
and the convention yesterday looked like an
enlarged edition of the "Happy Family." Thc
several successful candidates "looked their
very best;" the unfortunates bor3 their defeat
with outward equanimity, and nobody would
have suspected that they Ind just passed
through a revolution.
Governor Orr visited the convention soon
after it was called to order, and was enthusias?
Petitions were presented from the following
persons, praying to have then- political dis- ?
abilities removed: J. K. Stone, Greenville; j
John W. Twitty, Lancaster; E. W. Lawson, Ab- I
beville; Matthew McDonald, E. P. Lake, of 1
Newberry, and John T. Green, of Sumter.
Referred to the Committee on Petitions, i
which it is understood will report on Monday .
The convention took up its unfinished buei- 1
ness, namely, the articles referring to the Ex- 1
ecutive and Judicial Departments, which re- :
cei ved their third reading; with the exception 1
of section 2, which was recommitted for the 1
Surpose of fixing the date of installation of the ,
B. O. Duncan said that tho chairman of the
Judiciary Committee, then absent, had an ad- 1
ditional section to incorporate in the judiciary 1
report, namely, the ordinance passed by the 1
convention invalidating contracts based on i
slave property. ?
Mr. J. S. Craig opposed the introduction of
the ordinance into the constitution; said it was 1
in direct conflict with that clause which re- 1
ferred to impairing the obligations of con?
tracts, and that if incorporated he would vote ?
against the constitution.
Mr. N. G. Parser offered a resolution that <
when the convention finally t-.djourn it shall be
on Tuesday, March 17, at 12 o'clock M., sub- :
ject to tue call of the President and Vice- 1
Presidents, in th? order in which they stand, 1
at any time that the public exigencies shall ?
demand, provided that au soon as the presid?
ing officer shall have received official notice of 1
the ratification of this constitution by the peo- 1
pie he shall, by pubhc proclamation, adjourn 1
the convention sine die. ?

Besotted, That J. J. Wright, D. H. Chamber- ;
lain^ J. N. Rutland, B. F. Wldttemore, and W.
B. Nash be declared the Vice Presidents of this
convention, who shall perform the dutieB of
President of this convention in the event of
the death or ic ab; ii ty of the present President.
Both resolutions were agieed to.
Mr. S. Corley, of Lexington, offered the fol?
lowing resolutions :
Whereas, the registrars of some of the coun?
ties of thc State during the period of the late
registration, forgetting that virtue itself is
meanness in a s'.ave, refused to enter the names
of colored men on their hst, simply because
while slaves they had been punishedVs felons
by an incompetent and autocratic court, held
for the trial of petty offences ; Be it, therefore,
Besoived, That no offence heretofore com?
mitted by a slave, nor punishment inflicted on
the same, can nov. 0 beld as coming within
the intent and meaning of the Reconctxnction
laws in reference to felony; and hereafter every
loyal citizen should hold "it to bs his imperative
duty to report the registrars so finding to the
commander of the Second Military District,
that he may be visited with the just penalty of
Also the following:
Whereas, The provisions of the present bank?
rupt law are beyond the reach of the really poor
man, and, therefore, a practical nullity in their
application to the very cases they should above
all others reach; therefore,
Resolved, That the members of the Constitu?
tional Convention do hereby petition Congres s
to amend said iaw in such a manner as to se?
cure ita benefits to al!, without reference to the
precise amount of the indebtness of the appli?
cant, or the payment cf thc advance fees which
are now requited.
Both of tue resolutions were adopted.
Mr. D. H. Chatuberiaiu introduced the follow?
ing ordinance, and moved that it be referred to

KB* MENTAL DEPRESSION.-MENTAL
depression is a disease o? the nervous system, and
of all thc rds nesli is heir heirto.it ii thc ono that
excites the least sympathy, lt isa subject of ire
quent jests, and is called by various derisive terms ;
but, although it is of;en laughed at, it is not easy to
laugh the patient out of the belief that hts ills are all
real, for it is a real disorder-the general features of
which are constant ieir, anxiety and gloom. The
external senses, as well as the mental ia:ultics, often
manifest symptoms of derangement. Noise, as ox*
falling water, and ringing in the ears ere complained
of, while black specks and fiery sparks frequently
flit before the vision. Admonitions like these should
not be disregarde?, as they may, if neglected, termi?
nate in insanity. The s .at ot the disease is in the
brain and nervous system, and to control the malady
it is necessary to use a powerful tonic and alterative,
which will correct and tone those organs without in?
flaming the brain. This is thc secret cf the success
of HOSTEITER'S STOMACH EITIEP.S in cases of
this kind, for which it is the safest as well QB the best
