Darlington; Rev. J. I. Pickett,

There wore. delegates present from
Enliand,:Canada and New hrunswick.
n1Audmyuredest, the R~ev. Johni
. Timmons Was made one ofr the
Vic Presidents. Neal Dowe, of
Maine,.was elected President. I was
placed at the head of the Coiimittoe
for the preparation of business.
The instant the Convention was
opend, and before the ollicers were
elected, the war began, by Mr. Clark,
of Rochester, moving that the Con.
vention should be open to all persons
of an Sex or color. This resolution
was laid u1ponl the table; but, finally re.
fered to the committee on business,
thence It tiever emerge.d. TFhen the
Rev. Miss Antoinette L. Brown pre
tonted her credentials, and climed
her sent, as a delegate: this Mr. Dow
unfortunately conceded, - as a nuitter
of right. In the- course of the day, W en
dell Philips, Snodgrass and Comistock,
made mlil.y eflbrts to carry out their
disorganizing schemcs. They vere
generally foiled: but still they. pre
vented ,the transaction of bisine.ss.
Thatniaht, all the Women.4 lights
folks organized a Neal Dow Teniper
anee Society. and appointed a host of'
delegates; they were at first received,
nd created no little confusion by
the attempt to force the Rev'd. Lady.
hfiss Brown, upon the meeting, enr
rying more than once a vote that he
should be heard. *Wh'en she mounted
the stand, indignant men refused to
hear her by such hisses, tiat not
a word she uttered could be heard.
Finally finding, that rowdies who had
followed the surreptitious delegates.
and as part of their train, were voting,
and thus giving a false position to the
convention, the rQom was cleared, anud
none0 but delegates were allowed
A police force, put at the disposition
of the convention, kept the doors from
this time forward. By a little past
1 all who were delegates were admit
ted. The next morning resolutions
weremoved by Gen. Carey to exclude
the self-constituted delegates, and to
sileneeMissl Brown. These resoltitions
es ciirred *th great ununimity.
e, it is due to the Iron. Sam'/.
Hodr, of Massachusetts, to say, that
he went with us of the South, against
all these disorganizers, and thus final
ly ehabled us to lay Women's rights,
and Abolitionism on the table.
Thursday night wvas the first meet
ing at which I addressed the people.
There was an immense audience at
Metrepolitan Hall. Twenty minutes
was allowed for each speech. I en.
deavored to be0 within the time--and
certainly was spraking to the saitisfiie
tion of the audience-when some scrub
cried out your "time is out." The Re
-porter of the Herald says this call was
applauded, and that I thereupon re
tired. This is one of the innumerable
falsehoods with which that paper, a
bounds. I replhied to him, "I thanked
him for the hint, and should attend to
it when it suited me."~ T1his wasap
plauded, and not the call. I spoke a
few minutes afterwards and was con
stantly applauded. My conclusion
was on my lips when I was interrupt

OnFriday night, we had a most
splendid demonstration of' the Sons of
Tlemperance. Myself and the bret h

comned by Mr. Periry of New York, in
one of the most beautiful addresses to
which I have aver listened. He con
ducted me to the chair as M. WV. P.,
and as such, I responded briefly; then
followed add resses by Dir. K en nedy,
of New York, Mr. Cassals, of Einglandl,
Dr. Fickhardt, M. W. S-., Mr. Cumi
ningham, of the Dlistr-ict of' Columbia,
Rev. M~r. Jacokes, of' Michigan. andl
Mr-. John L.ong, of Virgii.ia. Tlhis last
gentleman much rescembles Col. .Johnl
S. Preston of our State in per'so n, and
he certainly speaks much like him,
- Aid-fully as welhl. T1his is no common
p rue; but he dleserves it. Ne-er have
Iseen an audience more delighted than
they were with his sp~eechl.
I visited on Wednuesday the Cry!stal
Palace. It is indleed well worth heing
seen.. Aiiy thing and every thing, for
use or fancy, might be t here fiuind. A

else worth adding from New York.

C5-During a practice -of more than
twenty years, Dr. lcLane had attended
innumerable ptmientsn aflicted with eVefy
form of whrm disease, and wus induced to
apply all the energics of his inind.1t the
discovery of a vermifuge, or Worm desitoy.
er, certain in its efrocts; the result of his
iabnrs is the American Worm Specific,
now before the public, which is perfectlt
sate. and may be given Mike to children of
the most tender age, or to the aged adt(;
it purges mildly and subdues fever, and
destroys worms with invariable success.
It is easy of administratiorn and n it does
not contain mercury in any form whatever,
no restrictions are necessary with regard
to drinking cold water, nor is it capable of
doing the least injury tot lie tendletcst infant
An incredible torober of woris have been
expelled b'y thi:s great vermiinge.
Ef Purchaseis will please he cnreful
to ask for DR. SilANE'S ClEl.EBilA
TEFD VERMiFUGE, and take none else.
.All other Vermiftgres are worltless. Dr.
Nfe.lme's scenuine Verinuge, also his
Celehrated Liver Pills, can now be ind at
all respectable Drug Stores in the United
