"CotslosreTenU cast tbelr ibadowe before1
was perbap nerer more significantly Ulna
trated tban In the culmination of yesterday In
the rtnomlnatlon of President Ltnclon. Yet
few conld hate been prepared for tbe intense
earneatbesa of all, that nothing should Interfere
with tbe realization of that " consummation "
o devoutly to be wished."
Tbe least reference to his name produced a
thrill of enthusiasm throughout the audience,
and tbe greatest anxiety was manifested to
reach tbe nomination. The necessary prelimi
naries were endured with aa much patience as
could be expected, but It was plain to see no
mercy would be shown to trlflers; and although
It was undoubtedly hard to nip Incipient
geniuses In the bad, It wae performed with a
rntblcseneas that was terrible to witness. One
delegate from tbe golden State, who had eri
denily been digesting his " well-rounded pe
riods " from tbe day that tbe mantle of his
nomination to that ofilce fU upon him, seemed
peculiarly reluctant to " yield " to the pressing
ery of Dry up I" Dry up I"
One by one tbe obstructions were cleared
away like snags on the Mississippi rlrer, and
the gallant old ship secme'd to tumble all at
once Into smooth, deep water. Then came
tbe tug of war. Gtftk ma Greek In an effort
to gain tbe floor and obtain the much-longed-for
honor of " renominating Old Abe." Sten
torian longs were used by numbers who hoped
to drown down opposition by the Tolumeof
sound tbeyponred out of the'J throats. But
all In vain. Gen. Cameron got as much chance
as those Infinitely more vociferous. Mr. Btono,
of Iowa, in particular, waa decidedly nncom
promlslog,and falling to catch the Chairman's
eye, after several desperate effort In that be
half, remarked good humoredly and at the top
of his Tolce, " I will fight u out on this line If
It takes all summer."
Some discussion here ensued as to which
course waa beet to be pursutd in taking tbe
TOles. One proposed " by acclamation," which
met with great favori but Mr. Raymond, of
New York, arose, and clearly demonstrated tbe
policy of voting by Butts," and thus avoid
ing tbe aspersion that might be cast upon tbe
contention, " that tbe nomination of Abrabsm
Lincoln bad been rushed through tbe conten
tion by aome demonstration that would not
look to tbe exercise of tndltldual influence."
Oil cast upon troubled waters could not pro
dace a more soothing effect than tblsj and
when Mr. Cook, of Illinois, arose and said,
" Mr. President, the flute of Illinois again pre
sents to the loyal people of this nation for Pres
ident of tbe United States, Abraham Licolh,
. Ood bless htm," there seemed a universal relief
of soul In the hearty but deep responsive
" Amen I" that echoed from tTery part of tbe
contention. And wben the clear, sonorous
tolce of the Secretary called for the tote of
Maine, and Mr. Morrill, tbe chairman of that
delegation, announced the tote of that tiUle,a
quietude reigned around that was wonderful to
w I inert..
New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts,
Bbode Island, Connecticut, New York, one
unbroken chain or totea for Mr. Lincoln) and
so It continued, until It came to Missouri,
wben the cbalnnan of that deb gitlon apolo
gized for tbe course be was compelled to adopt,
but said they bad been " Instructed by their
constituents, and be recognized such Instruc
tions and must obey them." Tokens of dis
sent pertaded the entire Contention. Quite a '
number of delegate murmured and loadlyssld
tbey wished they could recall their act of ad
mitting tbe delegates from Missouri. Others
saldt u I told you so" "Now you see what
you get by attempting to conciliate such men,"
" We ehill hate more of this trouble yetj" " It
won't end here It will bo carried to the polls
and to the Electoral College," Ac, &v, Wben
the tote of Tennessee was announced for Lin
coln, Kentucky, Ohio and all the remaining
Sutra giving in their totes, harmony was re
stored. Without waiting for the announce
ment of the total tote by tbe Chair, the au
dience rose en matte, and such an enthusiastic
demonstration was scarcely eter paralleled.
Men wated their banda and hats, and ladles,
In the gsllerles, tbelr kerchiefs, and tbe band
track up In thrilling tones the grand old air
of " Tbe Star spangled Banner."
The band suddenly changed Its tune to
"Yankee Doodle," wben the enthusiasm mani
fested luelf In a fresh outburst that required
some abort time to subside Intt quietude.
On the formal annouuLement of tbe remit,
tbe chairman of tbe Missouri delegation stated
that, hating obeyed tbe Instructions of his
constituents, be was happy now to mote that

mously for Mr. Lincoln. Some few muttered

anathemas against blmj but, on the whole, his
motion was well received, and Mr. Lincoln
sunds before the world the unanimous choice
of tbe National Union Contention, composed
of delegates legally elected by the people of
every loyal State,
"Now, then, who's for Vice President!" was
tbeunltersal Inquiry. And when Maine, as It
was natural to expected she would, led off
by throwing tbe whole of her totes for Hannl
bal llamlln people acemed to think, as went
Maine so would go tbe Union bnt when New
Hampshire torewtwoBatlershells with another
for Andrew Johnson, with fonr lor Hannibal
Hamlin, and three for Daniel 8. Dickinson,
there was a startling confusion lathe camp,
At tbe name Andy Johnson there was a burst
of enthusiasm In the rear of the theatre and In
tbe galleries, that waa Terr portentous. The
totes of Vermont, Massachusetts and Rhode
Island Increased tbe confusion, but when Con
necticut cast her twelve Totes In a lump for
Mr Johnson, a still greater outburst arose from
his friends, and when New York followed by
gltlng him thirty-two totes and only six for
Mr. Hamlin, and twenty-eight for Mr. Dlckln
son, the enthusiasm was unbounded. New
Jersey divided her rote, seven for Johnson and
settn for Dickinson. Then Pennsylvania was
a knit, fifty-two rotes for Hamlin. "There'll
be no election this vote," cries one. "Every'
body wauu to It so grateful to eterybody else
tbat It alot to be wondered at," cried another.
It went on as dltcrio as possible for a while.
It was six for ono and half a dozen for an
other, until It came to Ohio, when the chair
man of that delegation arose and recorded tbe
entire tote of that State for Andrew Johnson.
The enthuslaam of his friends again manifested
Itself, and wben Indiana, directly after, gate
her twenty-six totes for Johnson, there was a
storm of applause. Illinois, howeter, unset
tled tbe question again, by giving ber united
tote for Hamlin, and for a while "chaos had
come again," bnt Iowa gate her sixteen totes
for Johnson, and Maine requested to be allowed
to change her rote for blm. Then came a rush
oHthtx chaogts, until at last tbe chair an
nounced tbat of the 519 rotes cast, Mr. Andrew
Johnson had recelted of tbenWVTj Mr. Hanni
bal Hamlin, 0; Mr. Daniel 8. Dickinson, 13.
At this stage of tbe proceedings a happier
set of men could sea no be found. Everything
seemed to be Just as eterybody had wanted It

At half past two o'clock yesterday, dli pitches
ere sent to tbe President by different persons
announcing hla renomloatlon, but he waa ab
sent from his official room In the White House
at tbe lime, and did not see them. Some two
hours afterwards, Ignorant of his own nomina
tion, he called at the War Office, and accident
ally saw a dispatch there announcing the nom
ination of Mr. Johnson for Vice President!
The President expressed his surprise at the cu
rious action of the Convention, as It seemed to
blm, and thought It had got the cart before the
horse; but was asked by an operator If he not
seen a dispatch annonocloc his own renomloa
tlon for the Presidency. On bis replying that
bo bad not, be waa informed that such a dis
patch had leen sent him. He then explalnod
that probably his absence from his official
room In the Executive Mansion waa tbe reason
of his not having seen It. Upon returning to
the Executive Mansion tbe President found the
