TSE MONUMENTAL FAJE.
Hibernian Hall Int a Blaze of Light ana
Beauty-A Rare Display.
It is scaneely credible that any one ot the
hundreds who visited the Monumental Fair last
night, could have been disappointed. Keyef,'.lif ?
its recent history at least, has Hibernian Hall-so
often a scene of public concourse-presented,
rarer spectacle than was depicted to the "eyes,
from the opening of the doors until midnight ad?
monished the visitors that it waa time to retire.
The ladies had "accomplished wonders. From a'
chaos of flowers, hunting and merchandise, there
bad been reared falry-llte bowers, shapes of beau?
ty, and Golcondic mines of fancy store >. A melt?
ed ralubow emptied through a sieve would have
fouud a rival tn the rare display, which, from
floor to celling, around the walls, and upon thc
tables, caught and held the eye.
We can give but a general Idea of the occa?
sion, and ir, c?rrente c?lamo, we omit mention
or any or its prominent reatures, the lady mana?
gers will understand that lt ls only from a desire
to hold something in reserve.
Elbowing o e's way through the crowd, and
answering a hundred winning questions en route,
the first table reached on the right is that ol Mrs.
Henry Wigrall and Miss Blamyer. Here you find
temptation scattered to a degree that wonld mate
even a rich man feel poor-a lovely selection of
-the prettiest designs Imaginable f"r the toilette,
boudoir and nursery. An oil picture of St. John
and the Lamb rorms the centre piece or the deco?
rations. Smaller pictures or distinguished gene?
rals adorn other places. . Among the relics to be
raffled at this table ls a button worn by G eneral
R. E. Lee on his military coat during the war, and
sent by the great commander to a lady of this
Passing on we reach the pds tombs, where pretty
mail agente officiate, and coquettishly make one
pay for missives as sweet as honeycomb-and
j Just about as hollow. It is a tasteful Institution,
? however, and during the evening appears to have
been generously patronized by the young bachel?
Beyond the postoffice 13 a Oyp3y tent-a curi?
osity which, tri:h Its contents, we Iqave the visit?
ors hereafter to penetrate. There may be a ror
tune in lt.
Mesdames Olnejfr and Stocker have a very large
and beautiful table richly adorned, Immediately
adjoining the tent, and never were the powers or'|
.lasclnatloa more successfully exerted than last
night The articles es jibits J are "too numerous
to mention," and the selection ls one that ap neals
to every taste.
The band formed a dividing line between the
tables at the end of the hall, and "music soft,
music swed, lingered 'round the place."
. Crossing to the opposite side wc dud a temple
of flowers, beneath which Mrs. Wineman and her
fair assistants dispensed the hospitalities or the
occasion, and made everyone reel littered at
such an opportunity to spend greenbacks. Re?
freshments* In abundance- elegant cakes, choice
perfumery, and beautiful things gene-ally, are
embraced ta the catalozue or this . table. Here,
tod, ls the grand raffle or the Fair-a hundred dol?
lar bond, a silver pitcher, and eight other choice
' Mrs. Dr. Solomons and Miss Simpson have a j
very handsome table adjoining the one last nam-'
ed, where, under a tent-not strictly imaginary
the array of pretty articles ls both large, and
unique. Among other cariosities ls au exiled

Confederate soldier on top. avery striking and f
artistic work; and various articles from Canada,
Switzerland and Germany.
In this vicinity, toa, we have a t wen ty-fl ve ceru
table for children, and a miniature specimen or

Mrs. Snowden and- the ladles or the Widows'
Horde have a large and ver/ attractive table, or
rather a series or tables, richly supplied. Wax
dowers, palmetto work, Swiss carvings, curious
dolls and dresses, and hundreds or articles which
lt would occupy hair a column to describe, are the
-stock which excuses the crowd for lingering. A
large and expensive music box is among the
things to be raffled ; also a coke from Baltimore.
And a Confederate Colonel, a roguish-looking
blonde, Innocent of whiskers, but so fat. In the
fice that somebody suggested that he?night have
a link or Prussian war-sansage stowed away in
either cheek, presided gallantly over the table.
The Colonel, we need hardly add, was armed,
cap-a-pie, lu the well remembered grey, with
every detail or his -uniform complete. Hts
gorgeous get-up must evidently have been the
handiwork ot some ralr and unrepentant rebel.
A stand loaded with bouquets and crowned with
a pretty schooner yacht, occupies a place near
the entrance. We have made a rapid tour or the

THE MASKED BALL OP TUE GERMANIA BUND.
A more unpropitious evening than last night could
hardly have been duneed upon for thc festivity
or a bal masque, but in spite or the weather, the
ball or the Germania Bund was a complete suc?
cess. The splendid concert-room at the Academy
was crowded at an' early hour with the merry
maskers, and the bright light and particolored
dressing within round au agreeable contrast with
the raia.and storm without. The costumes were
various, and among them the comic were an un?
failing sof ree of fun. AU the usual characters
were fonnd, Dutaband.of mischievous ^orangou?
tangs, and a partidor the p/tzileged class, led by
a candidate elect for ;he:9tat? senate, Were espe?
cially prominent and amusing. The costumes
among the ladies were tasteful and becoming,
and in many cases handsome. "The -Daughter
or the Regiment," "Night," and the antiquated
vendor or peanuts, were especially good. A splen?
did band from the gallery discoursed the most
alluring music, and waltz, polka and quadrille
followed in charming succession. The dancing
was only begun when the masks were dropped
at ll o'clock, and with pretty partners so abun?
dant, all were sony when lt closed, at an hour
which heralded the approach or morn.

./.Election of Officers-Sew Member
: Thc Supper Last Evening-Speeches
- The 87lh anniversary of the CharlestOE
Chamber of Commerce occurred yesterday.
Tlie'members assembled , at 2 o'clock P. M
the hall; corner East.-Biy and Broad streets. V
President Samuel-F.""Topper in the chair, when
the following-business was disposed of:
The various committees made their annul
ports,\Which were adopted.
Mri "Wm. A. Courtenay addressed'the Chamber
Ur. Presiden'-lt has been suggested that there
would be a propriety In the Chamber of Com
tnerte taking notice or the recent marine occnr
rencos happening in January. Two steamships
arriving at our port, after collisions a- sea, each
cut down to the water edge; one at a distance
120 miles, and the other at a-dlstance-of 800 miles
from Charleston, and yet rescued without serious
loss to cargoes.
1 therefore take pleasure In bringing the clrcum
stances of these accidents to the steamship Cuba,
Captain John M. Dukehart, of the Havana, New
Orleans and Baltimore line, and to the steamship
Sea Gull, Captain N. P. Dutton, or the Baltimore
and Charleston line, particularly before the
Chamber, with a view of expressing to the com
mandera Of those steamships the high appr?cia
tlon m which their conduct, under most perilous
and unusual surrounding?, is held by the com
merdai commuaity of Charleston. -'
The month of january, Just passed, has been
marked by a most unprecedented series of marine
disasters, the statistics of looses, as far as ascer
tamed and estimated, showing the large figures
of over $3,ooo,uoo, quite three times as much
has be eu considered a large, month's footing here
torure?3P|hile on distant seas -violent gales
ivavo-'SmBo-oyed' stately ships, : with valua
be cargoes; our immediate* 'coast has
been shrouded in dense fogs, a ternattng wi
snow storms of unusual Severity. Under such
condMons the dlmeulUes and dangers of coast
navigation were greatly multiplied during the
period referred to, and that great danger of collis?
ions necessarily increased on the much-frequented
thoroughfare between thc Northern Atlantic
pons and Charleston.
The steamship Cuba, Captain John M. Pakehart
was run into on thc night of me ?ttl January
on? hundred and twenty miles east northenst
Charleston, by an unkuo.vu brig, opening her
p?rt side for several feet above and below her
water line; the water* pouring freely luto the
steamer's hold. Captain Dukeharr. assls'ed by
his officers, lashed themselves with ropes an
plunged Into the sea, and with mattresses and
bedding succeeded promptly in srrestltt? che leak
Returning to the steamer, a portion ot the cargo
af,sugar was removed to the upper starboard
deck, until the steamer listed suillclently to bring
the damaged section above the load line. The
Cuba was then headed for Charleston, ana .by able
management of captain Dukehart, supported by
the o rn ce rs and crew, this feat was successfully
accompli-bed, and on the morning of the 23d she
reached this port in safety.
The steamship sea Gul!, Captain N. P. Dutton,
collided with the schooner Watson, on the night
of the 22d January, crushing lu thc whole bow o
the steamer, through which opening the water flow
ed freely Into the hold. Captain Dutton promptly
ordered the forward cargo to be thrown overboard
andi nail v succeeded, with the assistance of hiS of?
ficers and crew, in lightening the vessel to (hs ex
teat of bringlag the leak abeve the loa.1 line,'an J
by using bedding and mattresses arrested the
water. In this condition, Captain Dui ton attempt
e.i-to get lr,t? Hatteras Inlet, but railing in this
on account or the Sea Gull's draft of water, stood
atong the count, and, under convoy r f the stearn
ship VfcglnM, Captain Alexander Hanter, of the
Philadelphia aud^Gh'arJeston -Llue, finally reached
rhts'pi rt on.the morning of the26th, to the sor
prise i a*-'the-iff hole couitnuait-y.'-Bythe prompt
and intelligent, action of Capt alu'. Dukehart and
Captain Dutton two large"and valun"b:a 'steamer
and-thstr cargoes have been nearly entirety saved
tolownere. underwriters shd consignees, A fe w
minutes of hesitating delay, and property to the
amount of 1400,006, or $500,000 must assuredly
have been destroyed,.^which resale; .would, in ai:
probablllty'have beenioilowed by loss of life. '
Aaiias b?en properly remarked by the press
"nothing" but a high sense pf] duty could have
prompted men id ar tempt so wonderful a rescue
cf property at sea,'! and it well becomes an asso
elation of merchants like ?hts to express their ad
miration ol conduct, marked- by BO much of true
courage and devotion to duty. Be lt, therefore,
? Resolved, That the .Chamber of Commerce of
Charleston- has heard with great satisfaction of
Me successful management of . the steamship
Cuba and of thesceamship Sea Gull, arter.the col
Unions af sec,' evidencing, as the facts da. the
brave and skilful qualities of Commanders
Dukehart a?il Dutton, conduct In both instances
which should be held up as examples of seaman
ship worthy oT emulation'.'
-'Resolved, That copies-of these proceedings be
properly engrossed; attested by the seal of the
official* of tne Chamber, and forwarded to C?p?
talaDukehart and "Captain Dutton.
Upon motion of Major P. J. Porcher, seconded by
U 1). Mowry, Kaq., the resolutions were unani?
mously adopted. -
. F. w. Dawson, Esq., offered the following Teso
lttUon?, TfTitch were adopted: <. ...

proposed in Congress,' ripon (lie recommendation
of the proper officers, to make an appropriation
for the Improvement or the Beach Cliaunei. in the
harbor of Charleston, a matter In which the
Chamber has always taken an active interest.
Resolved, That the .president or the Chamber
communicate this resolution to the senators and
representatives from South Carolina tn the Con?
gress of the United States, and request on behalf
of the Chamber lhat they use all their Influence
to secure thc passage of the appropriation refer?

Charleston, and will, through Charleston, be or

Few occasions hare been more Bucessfully man?
aged, or more replete with pleasure, than the an?
niversary banquet which concluded the business
of the day. Tully, the well known caterer, had
been employed to expend the genius or his art in
producing the wherewithal, and under his bands
the dhiing apartment ef Hibernian Hall grew
suddenly suggestive of the Joys to come. At half,
past s o'clock P. M., the members of the Chamber
assembled In the vestibule, and in a few minutes
thereafter one hundred and twenty-live gentle?
men representing the varied commercial inter?
ests of Charleston, marched iato the banquet hall
to t!ie mnslc of Professor Dauer's band.
The chair of the president lu his absence was
occupied by Vice-president S. Y. Tupper, Esq.,
and never did the Chamber of Commerce possess
a spokesman whose grace, geniality and ready
humor were BO calculated to enhance the
pleasures bf a public evening dinner. Among the
guests of the evening were his Reverence Bishop
Lynch, James R. Randall. Captain J. M. Duke?
hart, or the steamship Cuba, Captain W. P.
Dint on,of the steamship Sea Gull, W. L. Ellis, Esq.,
of Macon, and John-W. Rlee, Esq., or.New York.
The chorus of knives and forks, and the changes
of thc table having occupied th?' usual time, Mr.
Tupper arose,-.andi in a few. well-timed remarks,
paid tribute to the venerable character or the
Chamber, Us conservatism, and Its power as a
bulwark against the encroachments or those
principles which were sapping the foundations of
society and or trade. Arter alluding to the
affliction which prevented President Mure from
being at his place at the board, and expressing
the common regret at his absence, he concluded
with the sentiment:
Commerce-Untrammelled by taxation and un?
restricted by l?gislation, lt ls the messenger of
peace, and must ever add to the wealth or na?
This called to his feet the acting vice-president,
Mr. E. H. Frost, who gave as a sentiment
The Prosperity or the City of Charleston-In
the future as In the past-steady and sure.
Colonel P. C. Gaillard responded, and conclud
ed a happy speech," with a sentiment to the clergy
or Charleston, which called ont the Right Rer.
Bishop Lynch. .That distinguished clergyman
.made a brier, bat hopeful speech, which was re?
ceived with every demonstration or satisfaction.
He gave as a sentiment, South Carolina and her
glorious future. (Applause.) Music-Dixie.
The president now paid a handsome compli?
ment to one or the guests .or the evening, in* the
:|oUowing happy strata:
Gentlemen-It ls a pleasure to welcome at onr
board to-night one whose name Ls tammarin al?
most ever- household or our Southern land
wh03e8tralns or melody have6ttneJ the patriot's
hean, and endowed with ure and beanty the
Bcenes or our late Conrederate struggle. What
breast has sot fired with emotion upon hearing
.his hymn or Maryland peal forth In grand chorus
from a thousand voices in our. soldiers'camp, or -
when in tender strains lt has warbled from the
Hps or woman In our homes and sanctuaries ?
Whose eyes have not moistened with tears of sym?
pathy for our dead warriors, whose Insulted
graves at Arlington has been made the theme or
our poers song?
Bat why enumerate the triumphs or his muser
Bis song's are familiar to us all, and he has played
upon our heart-strings with the hand or a master
It ls no exaggeration to say that the immortali?
ty, of our heroes depend more upon the song or
the poet than upon the pen of the historian. The
great Achilles himself would never have been im?
mortal had not the blind old min or Solo's rocky
Isle steeped him In Helicon and embalmed him in
the amber of poetry.
. The songs of oar Southern poet, Mr. Randall,
will, I believe, give that Immortality to his name
which he has given to the deeds 01 those whose
glories he has sung.
I propose his health with all the honors of the
Bright be his days-may life's blest hours
Bring for him Hs loveliest dowers;
And when with dose or time-in view,
May age for him have comforts too.
The band played "Maryland, My Maryland," .
and the distinguished poet, In a- fervid and elo?
quent strain, responded to the compliment.
Cheer on cheer anawered the points he made, and
the enthusiasm, scarcely knew bounds when Mr.
Randall recited "The Lone Sentry-Jackson Keeps
Guard in Camp To-Night."'
When the applause subsided, Mr. Randall gave,
as a sentiment--The Bar of Charleston."
Responded to by Colonel William Whaley and
John Hanckei, Edq.
Mr. J. H. Miller, or O-orgia, was called npon to
slug a sohg, and very handsomely rendered ' The
Heart Bowed Down with Sorrow."
Other ' flows or soul" followed, and, at mid?
night, thc Chamber of Commerce was lu the hap?
piest condition possible, consistent with thc pro?
prieties ot the situation.
SOLDIERS ON A SPREE. -Between ll and 12
o'clock on Sunday night four ' boys In blue"
came up through Market street, well primed with
whiskey and spoiling for a-fight. A well-known
barber of the vicinity, who erossed their path,
was chosen as a flt subject, and In a trice he was
knocked down by the ruffians. He gave the
alarm, however, and the police coming to hts
rescue captured one of the assaulting party, and
the other three took to their heels. After a abort
chase, being too groggy In the legs to run, the
trio were captured In King street. A night in
the lock up sobered them sufficiently," for an inter?
view with tim Mayor pro tem., who sentenced
them each to pay a fine of $ io or go to the House
or Correction ror twenty days. Af ter mature de?
liberation they chose the latter, and were yester?
day sharpening their noses against the Iron bars
to the door or that popular Institution.
TOE OLD STORT or IHE DARKET AND THE
PIO.-Joe Ward, a colored resident at Ten-Mile
Hill, on the South Carolina Railroad, went walk?
ing last Sunday evening, with his faithful dog
and trusty axe, In the woods near his house, for
the parp?se of getting some lightwood. While
meditating ou the Ills of this life, a beautiful
porker of the most tempting personal appear?
ance crossed his way, and, as the memories of
the tempting spare ribs and crisp roasts came
floating through his mind, Joe instinctively
"slcced" on his dog, and started In pursuit. The'
tempter was overtaken and dispatched, and ail
traces of 'the deed carefully obliterated. That
evening the pig was missed, and the possession
or the meat having betrayed Joe, he was arrested
and bronght to the city to answer ror the deed.
The case was tried yesterday, before Trial Justice
Magrath. In the coan, the prisoner was con?
fronted with the blood and brains or his defunct
victim. He was found guilty, and sentenced to
pay a flue of $20 and costs, or go to jail for thirty
days. He went.
EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPE OF G Ul li ES FROM
/AIL.-Eir G. Grimes, who lately confessed baying
murdered Colonel Wm. P. White, at the instiga?
tion or 0. 0. Bowen, in 1864, at Waccamaw. near
Georgetown, effected his escape on Sunday night
from the jail, in company with another prisoner.
By the instructions of the she/Iff, Grimes, from
the moment of his Incarceration, was allowed by
the Jailor the liberty of the yard and dffloe. On
tho night In question, Sheriff Mackey was Ut at
the Ja}!, and the jailor had gone up to see him in
his room jost over the office. Grimes wa? left In
the office, and, Anding no. one on the watch, he
prized open a desk and got possession of- a key
to the side-door. Tom Williams, a prisoner con?
fined for assault and battery upon his mother,
was with him, ann by means of the key they
opened the side-door into the circular apace for
the stairway, and finding the small outer door
open, the two walked quietly into the sireet.
They did not leave word where.they were going
.r when they would be back, ami have not since
been heard from. Auotner mystery la the dark
Bowen record l
On the 1st day of February Mademoiselle
Adelaide Phillipp? gave a concert at the Freund?
schaft sbn nd Hall, on which occasion the accom?
panying pianist, one Mr. Hoffman, after having
performed several pieces tn a sort of boaFdlug
school-mlss rashion, stated that he would play
more, if it were not that the plano was too bad.
At this conduct ot thc soi-disant maestro we
were highly Indignant, bat at once came to the
conclusion, that Mr. Hoffman was paid by some
enterprising plano manufacturers to make little
and depreciate all pianos lie may happen to meet
np with In his concert tour with Miss Phllllpps.
unless such pianos should bear the Imprimatur
or the said enterprising manufacturers who have
retained his services. It was perhaps well this
artist (?) was not asked what faults he found lu
the Instrument, for unle-s he was prepared for
a tetal disregard or the truth, we know that he
would have been at a loss to frame a reply.
To be sure, we may be mistaken, and do Injus?
tice to Mr. Hoffman; but lest those who necessari?
ly nave to depend In the choice or a piano upon
the judgment of others should allow themselves
to be misled by such a barefaced, falsehood", we*
declare herewith :
L That experts consider the piauo3 manufac?
tured by the Messrs. Knabe, or Baltimore, as un?
surpassed by those or any other makers In point
of tone, construction and durability.
2. That the piano or ??he Freundschaftsbund is
au unusually flue Knabe, and that the agent of
the Concert Compauy, Mr. Payson, when he rented
the locale was delighted to lind so excellent an In?
strument, and at once engaged it with the hall.
3. That Mr. Hoffman proved htmseir to be but a
very mediocre artist by the remark aforesaid, for
almost any Instrument, not ont or tune, gives
forth good music when touched by the bauds or a
master. Mozart enchauted his hearers when
playing upon the old-fashioned spinnet, and Paga?
nini's violin earned enthusiastic applause when
the master's Angers and bow had but one string
to play npon. To be sore Mr. Hoffman could not
play upon the magnificent Knabe Instrument,
but then that was-the fault of the plano.

TSE BAJ>I?AL COUNTY CONTENTION
A Chapter la Politics-Speech-making
Born Politicians-How not to do lt.
In response to the call of the chairman of
Charleston County, the Radical delegates assem?
bled at the Military Hall yesterday, and at tue ap?
pointed hour the small room on the first floor, m
which the convention was to ne held, was
crowded to suffocation. Among the delegates
every variety of color common to the haman race.
13 to be found, but the black largely predomi?
nates. In the midst of a. distracting confusion
Parson R. H. Cain took the chair, by virtue of his
office, and called the meeting .to order. . A num?
ber of motions were immediately made, when the
chairman, who fortunately, possesses a good tem?
per and a sound pair of lungs, proposed to organ-.
lze_ by electing a temporary chairman and secre?
tar^. Several speakers rose, bat owing to their
all speaking at once, our reporter was unable to
ascertain the drift of their arguments. A perti?
nent remark was hers made t&at there were but
ninety-Biz memhers of the convention, and over
ono hundred- and fifty persons were in the room.
A motion was thereupon .made and seoonded to
exclude all bat those'who had proper creden?
tials, and carried with a shoat, amidst ones of
"Mr. Chairman," "Order," "I rise," "I object,"
and howls from those wlthout-papers.
The haH was cleared In a few moments and the
delegates then entered as their respective pre?
cincts were called. The place was sqpn filien
again and nominations called for, for the office of
temporary chairman. Colonel Taft, R. B. Artaon
and several others whodecllned, were nominated, .
and an ele:tlon by holding up right hands re?
sulted In the choice of R. B. Art-ion, colored.
Several nominations were made for secretary,
and J. P. Howard was elected. Thc county chair?
man then reigned the" control of the convention,
with a few remarks, Into the hands of the. newly
elected chairman, who, after, a short address,
took bis seat." A committee of seven ' were ap?
pointed to ex -imlue the credentials of the doubt ful
delegates, there being two sets of delegates from
Amotr-n was now made,'and carried unani?
mously, that Lieutenant-Oovernor Ransler, who
was present, should address the meeting. That
official attempted a speech, but the "confusion
dire," which reigned la the centre and lower
part of the hall, prevented his being heard. A
motion to that effect having been carried, Robt.
Savage was appointed sergeant-at arms, and by
dint ef his strenuous efforts, and continuous rap?
ping on the table with a hage hickory stick by
the chairman, some appearance of order was at
length restored. The Lieu tenant-Governor de?
livered a lengthy address, which was Well re?
ceived by such of the audience who were not too
busy In their small political circles to listen.. He
said he was a citizen or Charleston Connty, and
felt a deep Interest In the action of the conven?
tion, and advised them In making their nomina,
tlon to select one who was reliable, capable, and,
above all, a thorough going Republican. He ad?
verted to the bioad principles of Republicanism,
which distinguish neither race, color, nor nation
silty among the citizens of the United'states, and
after mentioning the several candidates for sena?
torial nonors, he advised all to give their strenu?
ous support to the nominee of the convention.
The speaker came rather abruptly to aa end aa
some one in the crowd vociferated "Amen !" and
confused sounds of cursing and swearing and
pushing at the door, which prevailed throughout
the speech, erew louder.
On motion, lt was resolved that the representa?
tives of the dally papers be invited to seats on the
floor of the convention.
A motion that - Sampson, member of the
House- of Representatives of North. Carolina, be
invited to address the meeting, at the time
thought proper by the chairman, was carried,
but, on search being made, that personage hap?
pened not to be present.
Trial Justice Levy being invited to address the
meeting, made a few remarks advocating the
unanimous support of the nominee of the con?
Rev. E. J. Adams being likewise called npou,
endorsed the views of the last speaker, and believ?
ing lt highly proper to elect an Intelligent man,
modestly offered himself to the convention as the
equal of Corbin, Leslie and other senators lu*
every capacity. The speaker adverted to bis ac?
tion when a member of the City Council, and
said now. as then, he would etand by the princi?
ples of the Republican party and tho people.
Parson Cala nsxt addressed the convention by
request, and referred to his actions while hereto?
fore representing the people as being those of a
just and honest man.
The Rev. M. Mills was next introduced, and
spoke of his belog a South Carolinian, and living
hereslnce 1800. During his address he was fre?
quently Interrupted by loud talking and laughing..
The chairman beiag thea called upon made a
few remarks concerning himself and his being a
candidate through the solicitations of his friends,
and he believed of the people.
. Arter this speech the committee on credentials
made their report, and several present being ex?
cluded by lt the discussion which followed was
hot and loud. The chairman was deafened with
the numerous calls upon him, and a dozen sten?
tors had a vocal battle for the floor. Stephen
Brown, the Biggin Church Demosthenes, came off
ric tor, aad gallantly held his own against a dozen
"pints of auder," and a resounding chorus of
shouts and speeches. As the hour grew later and
the frequent visits to Kroeg's Inn stirred .the slug?
gish blood of the dormant politicians, the din grew
louder, and the disorder more general. It seemed
at this Juncture that of business there would be no
more, and a dozen excited orators, hoarsely
shouting "Mr. Chairman," crowded aroond the
Thc leport or the committee having been re?
ceived, the convention went into an election for a
permanent organization, and the following of?
ficers were elected: J. F. Greene, president; M.
Caulfield, vice-president; c. J. Anded, Stephen
Brown, secretaries. These officers were duly In?
stalled, and for the first time the convention as?
sumed some appearauce of order. A sergeant-at*
arms and two tellers having been elected,-the
.nominees for the State Senate were called. On
motion, lt was resolved, that the election should
be held by calling aloud the names of each mem?
ber of the convention and voting vivi voce, and
that a two thirds vote should be necessary to an
election. An endless number or candidates were
then nominated, and at a late boar, seeing no
probability or an election taking place that night,
our repdrter left._
