Immediately after, the adjournment of the e
convention yesterday, the lay deputies from \
the various parishes met in the vestry room j
of St. Philip's Church lo take preliminary
steps for the organization of an association to
secure the payment of'a sum of money, upon \
the decease of any clergyman of the diocese, 11
to his family. The general plan proposed was '
(hat a league or brotherhood should be organ- [
lzed, with as little machinery as would be ef- i
fectlve in carry lng out its objects, the mern-11
bers of which should undertake, upon the I \
death ol any minister, to contribute tbe sum I ?
of two dollars each toward a.fund to be pre-1 <
sente* to bis family. This plan was discussed 1j
and heartily approved by all the deputies at I ?
the preliminary meeting yesterday, and a 11
committee was appointed to arrange for a
more general meeting of laymen, to be held I
to-morrow'afternoon, at which lt is expected I
that the organization will be effected. . I
. A Pleasant Kennion. I j
Last evening, in accordance with a cordial ,
invitation extended to them by Bishop Eo-e,
th? members ot tbe convention called upon the
bishop at his residence on Church street, near
Broad, and were very courteously enter-1
talned. Most of the deputies to the conven?
tion, both lay and clerical, attended this
reunion, and the evening was very pleasantly I
spent in an informal, conversational manner.
It was a graceful social Introduction of the
bishop to the representative men of the
diocese, upon the occasion of the first conven?
tion that has occurred since his election to the i
episcopate, and it was with evident and .
mutual pleasure that the meeting took place.
There were no set speeches and Indeed no
formal meeting, but the guests, after partak?
ing of a charming collation, dispersed about
the ample apartments of the bishop's resi?
dence, or enjoyed the evening breeze on the
broad piazza and indulged in friendly and
instructive Interchanges of opinion, formed
new acquaintances, or revived old friendships,
discussed the affairs of their respective par?
ishes, and altogether enjoyed* one of those

GREELEY AND GRATZ.
THE FEEZING IN SOUTH CAROLINA
FIRST RA TIFICA TION MEETING.
A Large Meeting at Greenwood-The
People, Without UUtlncllcn of Color,
Ratify the Cincinnati Nominations.
The Abbeville papers print the ratification
meetiDg held in Greenwood:
An unusually large assembly of white and
colored citizens met on tbe campus ground in
Greenwood, Monday night last, to ratify the
nominations of the Cincinnati Convention.
The impatient crowd manifested so much feel?
ing and eagerness on the subject that lt was
almost impossible to call the meeting to order.
Mr. James Butler, colored, however, at the top
of his voice, finally succeeded in arresting the
attention ot the audience, and, upon motion,
called Dr. E. R. Calhoun to the chair.
The doctor was conducted upon the
rostrum by a special committee of excel?
lent gentlemen. By motion. Mr. S. P. Boozer
was requested to act as secretary, aided by
two assistants. 'Perhaps more enthusiasm
was never manifested by so larges mixed con?
clave of white and coloreo). Our esteemed
chairman on this occasion made the happiest
effort of bis whole life. His stirring address
will forever ring In the ears and settle on the
brains of those who heard bim. Ho reviewed
the lile of the Hon. Horace Greeley to the de?
light of the full audience. After discussing bis
merits asa great, consistent and truly loyal
man, he presented the abolition doctrines of
the Hon. Horace Greeley. He claimed for Mr.
Greeley that the emaBcipatlon ot the slaves
was due him. and that be organized the eman?
cipationists before Grant was known, where?
upon the Immense mass of men shouted
with uproarious applauses, and the chairman
took his seat amid deafening yells for Greeley
and Brown. Several other gentlemen were
called upon, who did themselves no ordinary
credIL One of the colored speakers claimed
that Mr. Greeley, unlike General Grant, the
warrior, would, If elected, carry his sword
lorse In ItB sheath. The amendments, he con?
sidered a sufficient guarantee to civil and re?
ligious liberty, ana that no man was more
ready to enforce them than Horace Greeley.
[Shouts and cheers.]
Mr. David Owens, colored, offered the fol?
lowing preamble and resolutions, which
Whereas, Mr. Greeley, from boyhood to old
age, bas been the unrelenting champion ol
emancipation, the bestower ot civil and re?
ligious liberty upon all mankind, and the Im?

nominations of the Cincinnati Convention

TONE OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA PRESS
Tho Only Hope for the South.
[From the Winnsboro* News.]
We have before us now the candidates and
platform of the Liberal Republicans, and It
rests with Democrats to say whether or not
they shall triumph. We are free to say that
we purpose giving to the Liberal cause our
whole support, because In IIB success alone
can we discern any hope of relief for the
South from military oppression and carpet?
bag thieving and corruption.
Two Strong Men.
[From the Marlon Star.]
Taking into consideration that there are
now but two political parties in the United
States, the Republican and Democratic, the
latter of which ls powerless at this moment,
we think the selection of Greeley and Brown
augurs favorably tor the restoration of con
si lau io nul government-the restoration of a
violated constitution. We don't believe that
the convention could possibly have selected
two other men who would have been so
strong with the masses of the people.
A. tiaaiiflcd Approval.
[From the Klngatree Star.]
If the race is narrowed down to Greeley
against-Grant, we shall support Mr. Greeley.
We do not know what course the national
Democracy will pursue, but we shall no* bu
led from our Individual Judgment merely upon
a party name unless lhere is hope of success.
We shall endeavor to lake a practical survey
ol the field when the forces are marshalled,
and support the one which ls less objectiona?
ble and most likely to defeat those who have
been tried and proved faithless. -.
Let Passlvlsm Prevail. .
[From the Marlon Crescent.]
We regarded the New Hampshire and Con?
necticut elections- aa fr d?monstration of the
utter Impossibility of electing a Democrat,-and
we thought commqn sense and common saga?
city would induce our party to refrain from a
contest which could bring nothing but defeat;
and taking advantaged the rising dissensions
springing up in Republican ranks, that we
would by our votes defeat and thus break
down the inlamous corruption which now
threatens the financial ruin of oar country and
the destruction of personal liberty. We can
defeat Gran;, tbe embodiment, the head and
front of this corruption, only by supporting
the Cincinnati nominees. We do not know
what will be done at the Democratic Conven?
tion, but we hope the passive policy will pre?
vail. It lt does not, we will havelost our best
opportunity to effect real good to our country;
for by 1(6 behest the great mass of voters will
be governed, and so must we.
The Democracy Cannot Hesitate.
[From the Abbeville Press ]
The candidates are both men who have a
strong hold upon the popular heart, and who
will unite a strong support from the East and
Weet. But without the aid of the Northern
Democracy we suppose that success is impos?
sible. Wnether that aid will be given cannot
be determined before the meeting of the
Democratic Convention which will soon be
called. We trust that these men will rise
above the allurements of party success, and
act solely with a view to the public good.
With such a principle to control they cannot
The Dictates ol Prudence and Common
[From the Sumter News.]
No better selection of candidates could have
been made. They will undoubtedly be elect?
ed too, If the Democrats fuse with the new
party, as prudence and common sense dictate
to them to do. Instead ol their making another
nomina<lon. We believe that the Democratic
Convention will endorse the Cincinnati nomi?
nation, and that the Democracy will merge
Itself in the new party.
Let the Democrats Sastaln Greeley.
' (Prom the Newberry Herald.]
We think Xhat the nomination ot Mr. Gree?
ley will give general satisfaction. His course
bas been unvaryingly consistent, and his sym?
pathies have been largely exercised in behalf
o: the oppressed South. AR the nominee of
the Cinclunatl Convention we hope that the
Democratic'pany will sustain him, and to?
gether with Liberal Republicans and Conser?
vatives all unite heartily in placing him In the
Country Btfore Parly.
[From the ColumblaSouth Onro;inlan.]
It Is vain to re-lstthe conclusion that the
nomination.at Cincinnati bas produced a pro?
found impression from one end o? the country
to the other. North, East, South and West,
the response has been more or less sym?
pathetic. It remains to be seen whether
t he Northern Democracy will unite upon Gree?
ley and Brown,* or try the hazard of an Inde?
pendent nomination. In the consideration of
this quertlon, we hope that country will be
allowed to rise above party. Whenever the
decision has beeu made, .we hope to find the
National Democracy prepared lo make what?
ever sacrifices i hat a patriotic regard for the
public good shall demand.
A Powerful Nomination.
(From th? Oracgeburg Times.]
That the-nominal lon is a very powerful one
nobody can deny, nor could they have chosen
two meu who are more calculated to induce
that spirit or concession on the part ol the
Souther.i white men, which Is to work that
harmony of purpose, not only to the good of
the national, but also domestic politic . There
Ils no man North or South who can say aught
atlast Greeley's unswerving bnoesty of pur?
pose and tbe masterly courage with which he
"goes for" dishonesty or tyranny, no matter
how high the circle In which he may see it.
No man North can doust his Republicanism,
and no.man South has aught to say against ;
him, who was fearless In his onset, honest In
bis victory, and our friend In adversity against
A Nan of Peace.
[From the Edgefleld Advertiser.]
As regards Mr. Greeley, the South bas much
to hate him for, but still more, we honestly
believe, to love him for. While he bas un?
doubtedly been the leader and the strongest
man in breaking down the Democratic party,
still, on the other hand, he has proved him?
self an honest man, an Independent man. a
consistent mao; and, beyond alt cavil, has
proved himself, ever since the close of the
war, to be actuated by a spirit of conciliation
and peace. And he is also an able man. and
a workingman-beginning Hie as a practical
printer. For this latter reason- though lt
may seem foreign to political matters-the
press of the country should be favorably dis?
posed to him. As yet no printer or news?
paper man bas filled the Presidential chair.
To see one attain this, high position, would
certainly both please and dignify the cratt.
Since the men and the measures proposed at
Cincinnati promise us so much of good, let us
hope that the Democracy, when they meet la
National Convention, will bid these men and

tion Indulged itself in a supercilious laugh.
The Grant administration has got over Its
mlrlh. It has ceased to laugh, and Its face ex?
presses anxiety. It bas discovered that not?
withstanding the laugh, the people in many
sections of the country have taken the nomi?
nation In sober earnest, and mean to support
lt; and now the administration sees the New
fork Tribune with Horace Greeley loemlng up
[Q the not remote distance, and fells "that the
nan who was bold enough to take a Journey
LoBichmond and become ball for Jefferson
Davis, who bas never,slnce the war, ceased to
idvocate the doctrine of general amnesty for
the South, who has cried "go hgme, carpet?
baggers," through the columns of the ?Tribune
ever since Grant began to exercise his military
genius upon the South, in place of the civil
lunctlons proper to be called in requisi?
tion In time* of profound peace, ls an
opponent not to be underrated, when
the question of Southern votes ls
considered. The administration also remem?
bers that Greeley has a record which will
carry great Influence for him in the North and
West. His tariff principles have for years
made him especially acceptable to the great
State of Pennsylvania; his personal populari?
ty as a genial, warm-hearted, honest gentle?
man, and olear-headed politician and states?
man, have won for-him hosts of well-wishers
and supporters in New York Stale, and his
exalted position as editor ol a* most Influen?
tial Journal-the very fact of hts connection
with the newspaper press-give him a fellow?
ship with the best newspaper men of the
American Continent, which ls no mean ele?
ment in a contest such as that to engage In
which he has been put forward by a powerful
convention, composed of some of the most
vigorous material In the country. A.candi?
date with so many points In his favor is not
exactly to be laughed at, and the ' tone of the
Conservative and a considerable portion of
the Democratic press of the country Indicate
it the present time that the coming Presiden?
tial campaign will not be likely to be so
pleasant for Grant as he and his
friends, and advisors, have hitherto sup?
posed. Under all these circumstances,
Ihe great question arises of what ls the
Democracy going to do about it? Several
prominent and influential Democratic polltl
.lanshere from the South are enthusiastic Gree
ey men, and express the hope that the Dem
jcratlc Convention will endorse the nominees
)f the Cincinnati meeting. Sundry Western
Democrats oppose the idea of the great organ?
ization running the risk of loosing Its Identity
by a coalition with the soreheads at Cincin?
nati. Northern Democrats are not so tree to
express au opinion, which may be attributed
:o their habitual caution. On the whole, as
aras an expression of opinion can be obtained
1?re, lt looks as though there ls a strong feei?
ng In Democratic circles to swallow Mr.
Greeley, and ask the great Democracy of the
[Jnlted Slates to assist-the object to be ob
lained by thlsKourse being too valuable to the
wintry to be overlooked, namely, the defeat
sf Grant at all hazards.
As foreshadowed In my last telegram, the
Supreme Court adjourned over, yesterday, to
Dctober next, without making a decision In
'he case of T. Jefferson Greer. The impres?
i?n prevails in government circles that the
:ourt was equally divided In opinion. N.

A Washington telegram, dated Monday
light, to the New York Tribune says:
Now that three days have elapsed since the
ruminations were made at Cincinnati, and the
leople have had time to recover from the sur?
prise and excitement occasioned by the
innouncement of the action of the conven
;loo, the views of public men and of expe?
rienced politicians begin to have some value
is Indications or the drift of opinion. Even
n three short days there are Important
manges lo note, and new phases of opinion
expressed that are worth chronicling, and not
.he least Important ls that few people can be
ound outcide of the White House who laugh
it the Cincinnati ticket. There they are
?aid to be quite Jolly over itt from
.he President down to the doorkeeper,
ind the President is reported to have declared
.hat no nomination could have been made
?vhich would have injured him so little; and
hat In a month the whole thing would be for?
gotten, and nobody would admit that he had
tone to Cincinnati. Bur, even before yester
iav evening, the administration supporters in
he Senate and House: had ceased to talk of
.he action of the convention as a "capital4
oke,"or an "absurd fiasco." * They were as
lolemn as owls, and when they referred to the
natter at a'l. which was not often, lt wa.; in
iuch terras as-these: "A dangerous nomina
?lon," "Formidable movement," "Sure to spilt
;he party," "Looks as if we were going to the
levll," and like phrases uttered In dismal
.ones to each other. The most melancholy
nan In the Senate dh Saturday was Conkllng,
who was not seen to smile once during the
whole day, except while reading the Dews of
lisaffectlon of a portion of the Cincinnati Lib?
erals. The friends ot Conkling say that he
takes a gloomy view of the situation, and an?
ticipates nothing but political ruin to himself
ia the result of the Liberal movement,
The President's most hopeful view is under?
stood to be owing to bis belief that Democrats
will not touch the Cincinnati ticket, but will
nominate candidates of their own, and that in
consequence Greeley and Brown will disap?
pear from the field, leaving him a square tight
LO make with the Democrats, with the Repub?
lican party at his back, as solid as lt was In
1868. Few of the politicians'of either parly
take this view to-day. Most administration
men say that the Greeley movement will have
gained such an impetus by the time the Dem?
ocratic Convention meets, that if lt ls not
endorsed bv the convention, lt will not be
possible to switch it on to the Grant track.
One of two things they argue will happen,
either the movement will break down com?
pletely in a fortnight, of which they admit
Lhere is little probability, or lt will have gained
?uoh a numerous and determined following
before the Democratic Convention meets, that
it wlil be no longer a faction but a great
party, not to be transferred to Grant to avert
the danger of election ol a Democrat. Strange
to say, there ls already some talk of abandon?
ing Grant and nominating some other man at
Philadelphia to save the party, and it is whis?
pered about that if matters come to this pass,
Colfax would be the mun to pacify the troubled
elements and bring back the disaffected Libe?
rals. Nothing so well shows the strength o?
the Liberal ticket as these suzgestions of the
possible necefslty of throwing Grant over?
board, which one. hears b fore most of the
men who were at. Cincinnati-have had time to
get back to their homes.
Tue Democrats are much more circumspect
In their utterances than they were when th?
news of Greeley's success was received. It is
seldom that one eau be found to declare posl
tlvely that the Democratic Convention will
not indorse tbe Cincinnati ticket, whereas on
Friday there were numbers who were out?
spoken In this opinion. Almost all now ex
presea w! ill agness to support Greeley, if their
convention desired to take? b 1 m cp. There ls,'
however, a belief generally -entertained that'
bis nomination has Increased the chances of
success for a Democratic candidate, if lt shall
be thought judicious'to put one In the Held.
It Is admitted, however, by leading Democrats;
that there are strong reasons for not nominat?
ing a Democrat-chiefly, what they call Mr.
Greeley's great popularity in the South, and
the certainty of his carrying New York and
Pennsylvania. Ihe Liberal Republicans are
entirely satisfied with the nominations, and
their confidence in the strength of the ticket
has hourly increased from the moment lt was
announce]]. This confidence is derived not
only from comparison of views among them?
selves, and from the response' that has come
from the country, but from the obvious alarm
of i he administration mea.
Tole evening all sorts of wild rumors fill the
air; the talk among Administration men of
the possibility of dropping Grant at Philadel?
phia Increases, and ft has even gone so far
that suggestions are made of candidates who
would be available In case it becomes neces?
sary to make a new slate. One of these
tickets is Elihu B. Waehburne, of Illinois, for
President, and James G. Blane; another ls
James F. Wilson, of Iowa, for President, and
General Hawley, ot' Connecticut, for vice
President, f. -i
Will Grant Withdraw from the Presi?
A Washington telegram, of Monday night,
to the New York Herald, says :
It Is useless to deny the very evident fact
that the Greeley-Brown ticket is growing'ip'
favor. As the impulse on the part of the Dem?
ocrats 1n support of the .proposition for a reg?
ular ticket, dies away, as lt certainly is dying
away? the feeling In favor of another candi?
date at Philadelphia than-General Grant finds
an Increase of friends. The proposition, or
supposition, that Grant would withdraw, orig-'
i nally looked at as preposterous, ls now a mat?
ter of serious consideration. Whispered 'sug?
gestions that either Blaine or Bootwell would
make a better ruo-against Greeley than Grant
have growneln strength of utterance, until
now they are. talked aloud in the, de?
partments and at the Capitol. The number of
Democrats wbo have retreated from their first
declarations of opposition to the Cincinnati
nominations ls jrreatei to-day than lt was yes*
terday, and will be still greater to-morrow.
In fact, lt ls now among the probabilities, -as
well as the possibilities, of the future that Mr.
Greeley will receive the Democratic endorse?
ment. Republicans who up to a recent date
have been acknowledged Grant mea aow ad?
mit that Grant is the only stumbling block In
the way pf a reorganization of the old party
tn all its strength and purposes. "Why, then,"
they say, "shall we not put up some other
man, like Blaine or Boutwell, In whose favor
Mr. Greeley cannot fall to withdraw, and
thereby reduce the canvass to an old-fashion?
ed contest between Democrats and Repub?

WASHINGTON, May 7.
An important consultation of Administration 1
Republicans was held to-day in the marble
room of the Senate chamber, to discuss the ?
course to be pursued towards the Republicans
who had Joined the Cincinnati movement. Oue
or two senators like Chandler and Etfmunris
favored a war-io-the knif< policy, and de- :
nounced them as traitors to the Republican i
party. Other senator^ lududlng Mr. Wilson,
favored a peace policy for the present, with
the muire hope that the Democrats would
nominate a straight ticket, and that the Liberal
Republicans would thereupon all return to the
fold. It was lutlmated that the President held
that view, and so far as this conference could
bind anybody, it was agreed to pursue a leni- 1
eut course. A proposition that Grant should
withdraw and let the Republicans unit? was
seriously discussed. '.
What Senator Trumbull Says.
Senator Trumbull, according to the Wash?
ington correspondent of tue Philadelphia
Bulletin, (administration,) after saying that he
would support tne Lloeral ticket, added bis
belief that Mr. Greeley Viould be a popular
candidate and make a successful canvass.
From conversation with leadtnsr Democrats,
he believed that tbe Democratic Convention
would, endorse the Cincinnati ticket or split
the party. The Southern Democrats are united
in favor of Greeley, and they will Insist upon
thc convention endorsing the nomteaffori or
break the party to pieces. Mr. Trumbull
f nrthersaald that Mr. Greeley's nomination
would loree the Philadelphia Convention to
nominate some person other than Grant, and
that the coming Presidential canvass would
be the mostexclting ever known in ti?lrl8
tory of the country. In cone J u st o n. Hr. Tram
bull said he h oped, that all Liberal Republi?
cans would rally to the support of Greeley,
and bury their personal prefereDceB.

WASHINGTON, May 9.
Relations with Spain are of such a charco-'
ter aa to suggest preparations not looking to
war, but to the protection of the rights of
citizens of the united Stater. It la known
that our minister to Madrid will soon be with?
drawn, and no successor appointed until, as
was recently said by a high executive officer,
Spain shall be more disposed than she la now
to act with justice ana according to treaty
obligations. - Although war ls not regarded as
even probable, there la an Increasing desire that
our. navy shall be placed In an efficient condi- '
tlon, and, therefore, the authorities here may
before long issue Orders to several navy yards,
to place all our available vessels In seagoing
condition. The united Spanish dalma com?
mission, although organized more than atc.
months ago, have aa yet decided no cases,
there being delays In consequence of difficul?
ty la procuring proofs. The United-States
proposed that mode of settling the claims of -
citizens ot the United States growing ont'of
the rebellion in Cuba. There can be no dla-'
agreement on this point, but there are other
questions, Including tuat pertaining to Dr
Howard, which may cause further Irritation
and give occasion for a more determined poli?
cy towards Spain. .
