Borne of the autplcea of the Chicago Conven
tion betoken evil. A railroad train loaded
with deleiiatea It blown oil the track, and the
spectators' platform breaks down early In the
proceeding. It waa a "peace" platform, we
conclude, for nobody waa hurt. The accident
betokena the coming fate of the peace party,
feace meant the dltmemberment of the Gov
ernment and tubmlttlon, In fact, to the de
minds or Jeff. Davit. The people will break
down all tuch platforms, and Ihoeewho ttand
on them will tumble down.
Mr. Bdmont, according to the press report
of his speech, warned the Democrats at the
oulaet of the dissuasions of the Charleston Con
vection, and with reaaon. The tlave power
brcke up tbe Cbertetton Convention and the
Democratic party, and brought on the rebel
lion. The ijmpatbliera with the old "Inttltu
tlon" will rule or ruin the Chicago Conven
tion. The history of these Democratic conventions
It Interesting. The one next previous to the
Chtrletton Convention wst opened with great
eclat by Gen. Sterling Price, who, at the head
of a guerrilla delegation, knocked down the
doorkeeper, and etrode Into tbe hall with tbe
air of a tltveocrtt, followed by Italah Hinder
He waa expel'ed, however, and hla brother
s'svcocrsls, hiving everything their own wsy,
proceeded harmoniously to the nomination of
Bncbsnan. At Ihli convention, too, the ssme
Keystone Club, which "grosned" the Union
newspspers when they left Philadelphia for
Chicago, waa extremely active. They took
possession of Cincinnati, seemingly. The
lsrgett parlort In tbe hotels were monopolized
by them. Their bsndt of mualc added to the
general excitement, and they rilled the air
everywhere with the praltea of Jsmes Bu
chansn. That club did more for the nomina
tion of Buchanan than any other ontalde In
fluence. They now go for peace at tbe point
of tbe knife.
A Dlfllenlty with Spalai Pewalbl,
In tho year IMS, the United States made a
treaty with New Grenada, South America, by
which the United States agreed to guarantee,
forcibly If need be, the neutrality of the Itth
mus of Panama. This treaty was ratified
June 13th, lots. Mow, Fern, a friendly conn
try, calls upon the United States of Colombia
(formerly known at New Grenada) to prevent
Spain from transporting her troops across the
Isthmus for the purpose of Disking wsr npon
Tern.
Colombia, kuowlug that the has not tho
strength to resist or prevent flpsln from thus
transporting her troop, ctlla npon the Gov
eminent of thu United Ststes to fulfil the guar,
autoe entered Into by the tresjy above men
tioned. Our Government tlnda no difficulty In determ.
Inlng that It Is our duty to perform the oUlza
tlons set forth In the treaty, whenever the de
mand shall be made by the proper party) and
In the solution of tbe latter part of thu propo
altlon waa found the only doobt or caute for
hetltaucy. The matter waa referred to the
Attorney General, who, npon conalderatlon of
the subject and Toll examination of the history
of tbe tacts lovolveJ, finds that New Grenada
and thu United States of Colombia are one and
thu same Government.
So last we mutt send troopa and vessels of
war, tr uwd be, to maintain our treaty, and
pmet.t 8p,ln from transporting her troops
It appears that the tresty alto guarantees the
absolute sovereignty of New Granada over tbe
territory named, and a recurrence to the his
tory of the uegutlstlon shows thst the agree
msnt was made with the expectation of pre
sently being called npon to send troops for the
oit. nslblu purpose of maintaining the treaty
but really with thu dosljn of occupying and
possessing the territory on behalf of the United
Sulci. Bucb wat the plan of our, then, ad

A Peace M.asur. Propos.d.
Upon the tame principle, and for the tame
reatont, that General McClellan arrested the
Maryland Legislature, vln to catch traitors, we
tuggett tbe propriety of "gobbling" the present
assembly at Chicago delegates, outsiders, snd
all- A greater number of traitors could not be
caught at any one time, In one net) hence a
moro effectual modo of suppressing the rebel'
lion could not be devised. If this could be
done, recruiting might stop, the draft would
not be needed, tho rebellion would lose Its vl
tsllty, peace would follow, and the Union
would be rcstorod.
A Hew Military Invention.
Capt. Dlmmlck, of the 10th New Tork vol.
unteers, has Invented a light, portablo shield
for sharpshooters and skirmishers, which will
enable them to approach rifle-pita with safety,
and from their protected position shoot at tho
enemy ad IA. For good military and strategic
reasons wo forbear to give a description of this
Important Invention.
Th "l'.ftcs" Apoatl .d th Major Gtn

We had tnppoaed that Mr. Vallaiidlgbsm
was sen. 10 micago oy me political incnatt
but ho tells ut at Daytoni "I expect speedily,
by tbo grace of God and I aak no hla-her au
thorityto be at Chicago." This efiectuslly
dlepusos of the authority of tbe Convention
that BHnt him. IJut would ho kindly Inform an
inquiring public, In case he had been dissatis
fied with tbe authority he asserts, to what
"higher authority" he would have appealed!
In the midst of his speech the worthy orstor

It Is a most commendable resolution. The

TUB CUICAQQ CONVENTION.
Cn.CAOO, Angust SO. The National Demo
cratic Convention reassembled at ten o'clock.
this mo ml eg. Tht allena'aspa, both Inside
and outside the Wigwam, wai ercn greater
than yesterday.
Immediately after the Contention was called
to order, prayer was offered by Bishop White
home, ofllllnola.
Mr. II actios, chairman of tho committee on
organization, reported that the committee had
onsnlraonsly agreed npon Horatio Beymonr
as the permanent president of the Convention.
Applause greeted tho announcement, and the
report waa adopted bj acclamation.
SICOKD DISPATCH.
Tho report of the committee on organization
was read and adopted by acclamation.
The president la Horatio Beymonr, and vice
S residents Joseph Chase, of MIoej J. W
nlllvan, of New Hampshire . D. Beach, of
Massachusetts D. IT. Smaller, of Vermont)
George Taylor, of Connecticut) Alfred Antho
ny, of Bbode Island) Andrew J. Cobb, of New
Jersey) and Gideon J. Tucker, of Now Tork.
When qnlet was restorod Mr. Beymonr pro
ceeded to address the Convention.
Mr. Seymour said
Gentlemen of the Convention, I cannot fore
tell tho resolutions and action or thts Conven
tion, but I say that every member of It loves
tbe Union, desires peace, and will uphold con
stitutional freedom While tbe resolutions
and action of this Convention are of tho ut
most Importance, there are additional reasons
wby tho Democratic party should be restored to
powur, and they are great reasons.
Tbe Democratic party will restore tho Union,
because It loDgs for Its restoration. It will
bring peace, becanse It loves peace. It will
bring back liberty to onr land, because ll lovea
liberty. It will put down despotism, because
it batua Igunble tjrannv, which now degrades
tho American people. Four year ago a Con
vention met In this city, when our country waa
peaceful, prosperous and united.
Its delegates did not mean to destroy our
Government, to overwhelm ns with debt, or to
drench onr land with blood; but they were
animated by Intolerance and fanaticism and
blind od by an ignorance of tho spirit of our
institutions tho character of onr people and
the condition of our land. They thought
tbey might safely Indulge their passbns, and
concluded to do so. They would not heed the
warnings of onr fathers, and did not consider
that meddling begtta strife, and their passions
have wrought out natural results.
Tbey were impelled to spurn all measures of
compromise. Step by step they have marched
on to results from which at the outset they
would have shrunk with horror) and even,
when war has desolated our land, haa laid Its
heavy burdens upon labor, and when bank
rnptcy and ruin overhang us. they will not havo
tbo. Union rostored, except upon conditions
unknown to our Constitution. Tbey will not
let tbe shedding of blood cease, even for a little
time, to aee If Christian charity or the wisdom
of statesmanship may not work out a method
to save our country

of the kind, we bolide, erer glTenby a western
State to fill np a compartment In the walls of
the capital at Columbus. It la nf course very
Urjcr, larger Indeed than the national picture

count presented many dllllcalUea to the artist.
Bnt be baa overcome these with remarkable
skill, Selecting that moment In the light when
tbe gallant Ferry leayee his crippled flagship,
the tit. Lawrence, for the Niagara, Iho artist
has made tho host's crew the principal object
of his canvass. While the battle roara In the

comrades nobly fill the foreground. He la
standing In tho stern of hla boat, aa the histori

to which he Is going, and promising tlctory to
those he has left behind. A shell haa Just burst
near the gunwale of the boat, and his brother,
a mere lad, strives In vain to pnll him down to
a seat. The old sea-dogs who row him with a
strong aod steady pull watch him with deep
anxiety, but with faces nnblanched by fear.
