Wednesday Morning, Joly 25,18?6.
Wo nre'riigT?ly gratified to observe
the iinaidiui*y.<)? the people pf South
Carolina in responding to the call for
a National Union Convention. They
?were tiiefltstcpeopleto "rebel," when?
they thought their rights encroached
upoB, ancUl is eminently proper they
should be tho first. to return to the
Union, after having referred their
cause to the arbitrament of arms and
sustained? defeat. Loyal and true
as they wtere t? their own cause, they
are not less so' to-day to the Union.
Wherever their faith is plighted, there
wiH they be found to redeem it.
Our District meeting has selected
very ebie and competent gentlemen
to represent the people of Bichland
in the Convention, To that Conven?
tion is confided & high trust-one of
the most important, perhaps, that
has ever been given to the people of
the State; and wo hope they will
exercise their discretionary powers
with judgment. We conceive it to
be in bad taste to-nominate any gen?
tlemen tb the Philadelphia Conten?
tion, but would suggest that our
Senators and Representatives elect to
the Congress of the Uniteci States
are probably the best men wo could
select as one-half of our representa?
tives in that body. The others should
be chosen from our most experienced
men", without regard to their antece?
dents in public life. We hopo that
such men as Gov. Orr, ox-Gov. Perry,
Gen. " Wade Hampton and ex-Gov.
Pickens will be called to represent
the State at largo, and that the Con?
gressional Districts, besides their im?
mediate representatives, will select
men of a similar status to represent

The House proceedings yesterday
were important. An imperfect sketch
of them will be found in the proper
column. Their extraordinary charac?
ter, however, deserves a more graphic
description' than reporters are accus?
tomed to give. The result of the
morning's session was an arbitrary
declaration by forty-three members of
the presence of a quorum-over?
riding the decision of the Speaker to
the contrary; and, under this ruling,
a precipitate majority vote was had
upon the ratification of the constitu?
tional amendment Tinder the gag of
the previous question-there being
but fifty-four votes-two less than a
quorum-recorded. In the evening,
there was an attempt to undo the
wrongful and illegal proceedings in
regard to Messrs. Williams and
Martin, but all attempt at business
failed for want of a quorum, and tho
body dissolved until this morning, at
-Immediately on the announcement
of the result upon tho vote in regard to
ratification, all radicaldom was jubi?
lant. The vote was, ayes 43, noes ll,
the requisite two-thirds not being pre?
sent and participating. Messrs. Wil?
hams and Martiuwero under arrest in
a room adjacent to tho hall of Repre?
sentatives, and not present in their
capacity as legislators, but steadfastly
refusing to so act. By a fiction of
the constructive presence of these
gentlemen, the radical leaders as?
sumed the existence of a quorum and
consummated the unholy work of
formally committing the people of
Tennessee to the endorsement of a
measure to which nineteen-twentieths
of them are known to be opposed,
and known, too, to bo so by the very
men who have used this disreputable
legislative legerdemain to give it sem?
blance of legality. Irregular, illegal,
monstrous as it is, however, tho act
seemed to thrill and intoxicate tho
radical perpetrators and abettors with
furious and insane joy. Tho organ
issued an extra, and tho Governor
transmitted a taunting and insulting
message, to be delivered to tho Pre?
sident. As a specimen of Guberna?
torial malignity, we put tho latter on
record. It is extracted from the or?
gan's extra, and reads thus:

Governor of Tennessee.
The President will pass unheeded
the despicable spirit of this paper,
but it will serve its purpose, and be
rolled as a sweet morsel under the
tongue of the vengeful leaders of tho
radical party in Congress, who are
attempting to paralyze his noble
efforts to redeem the nation and re?
store it to peace and prosperity.

* A large and enthusiastic meeting
was held on tho 23d instant, for thc
purpose of appointing delegates to
tho Columbia Convention, at which a
number of eloquent speeches were
delivered. The following delegates
were appointed: J. B. Campbell, W.

After the announcement of the re?

after some brief and appropriate re?
marks, offered a resolution, which was
unanimously agreed to, that it ia the
sense of this meeting that the Hon.

sent this Congressional District, and
the Hon. W. D. Porter to bo one of
the representatives of the State at
large in the National Union Conven?
tion, to be held in Philadelphia on
the 14th of August next, and that
their appointment by the State Con?
vention to meet in Columbia will
meet the cordial approbation of the
citizens of Charleston.
It has been known for a long time
past that Charleston was flooded with
counterfeit money, aud especially
with spurious fractional currency.
Through the persevering energy of

to force justice out of us. General

Austria proffers to her by the hand of
Napoleon III, the war of 1866 may

Although the Egyptians could preserve
the remains of the dead from decomposi?
tion, they could not prevent the teeth of
the living from becoming decayed. In this

perfectly white and spotless.
THE BURNING WEATHER.-The
heated term of I860 will be memora?
ble in after times us the longest and
hottest term known to our local his?
tory since tho origiual settlement of

from sun-stroke alone, is simply ap?
palling. There is nothing like it
upon record, not even in the tropics.
