The Convention, moreover, appeared
at tirst to be undecided what course to
pursue, when finally, after some irregu
lar discussiuo, Mr McCook offered the
Resolved, That the Convention pro
ceed at the hour of two this afternoon,
to nominate candidates for the Presi
lde:rcv and Vice Presidency, and that
for this object a formal call of the
C States be made.
i Upon which resolution, Mr. McCook
r- moved the previt us question, amid ma
ny signs of disapprobation.
n Whereupon, Mr. Howard, of Tennes
Ssee, cfrned the following resolution.
u which again involved the nomination in

SIesoived, That o:i the ballot for Pre
`t sident and Vice President, two-thirds of
d the Electoral Colleges of all the States
of the Union, be necessary to give va
lidity to the nomination.
This resolution took the Convention t
' entirely by surprise, and created great
confusion, as it was accompanied with
ce the understanding that unless it was
et. adopted the States of Tennessee, Ken
re tucky and Virginia would withdraw en
it, tirely from the Convention.
up The Convention finally adjourned till
tlc 5 o'clock this evening, without taking
rv any action on either resolution.
ult The probabilities now are that the
a two-thirds rule will be rejected. The
ih: Tennesse, Kentucky and Virginia dele
u t gations will then withdraw in a body

The Japanese Embasy. I d
The following account of the Japan
ese Embassy, who left Japan the U. b,
S. steamer Paschaton for this country, th
and will shortly arrve at Washington, w
will be interesting :
Thea highest in rank occupied the star- h,
board stateroom, the second took the
larboard room, the third had a bunk i
prepared for him aft, but after a little f
he had it made up ou the floor. At the T
time of our visit, the Embassadlors were T
in the room of the Admiral. Their ser- a
I vants sat about the floor, enjoying them- a
selves immensely. One was dressing
the hair of his fellow. The happy re- i
cipient of tonsorial favors sat on the
flour cross-legged. All had their hair
dressed after the style that within the
last week we have become accustomed
to as universal with them. One lay his
length on the floor, cooling off quietly.
One sat on his haunches smoking his
pipe. A moveable fireplace was watch
paed over by one, who, as the charcoal be
gan to glow, set a little copper teakettle
thereon, and as its contents began to
sing, poured out and drank a cup of tea.
Very little water any of them drink on
lboard; tea is the universal dish.
Chairs, of course, they never use,
though at the American table they had
learned to sit without awkwardness, and
to eat soup with a spoon and to handle
knife and fork over beef, mutton and
game with as much ease as if these arts
came of instinct, and not of education.
The chiefs of the Japenese dined dai
ly with the captain. All other meals
they took by themselves---eating most
ly vegetables and fish, and though great
tea-drinkers, light eaters at all.
The rank of these visitors we must
remember- Of the seventy odd, twenty
are dignitaries, fifty their servants.
Among the former are three hereditary
princes, or rulers of provinces, and of
about equal rank. They are reckoned
- i as Governors, and the proper salute to
one of them would be seventeen guns.
Sihmme-Bujen-no-Kami, (that is Simme,
'd' Prince of the province of Bujen) proba
ly stands a little higher at home than
i either of the other princes. When ser
vants, or others of the company come
, into his presence, they prostrate them
selves; then rising, deliver their mes
F. sage with bowed heads. At home, no
' inferior must sit in his presence, but in
compliment to our people-believing
that in Turkey they must do as Turks
do-he says to any visitor, servant, or
. ether who approaches, "take a seat."
The second in importance of the Em
bassy is Muragke, Prince of the pro
vince of Agawe.
n' The third is Ogure, the Censor, who
acts as its Secretary, making a clean
record of all the experiences of the com
pany for the use of the Emperor. He
sent home from the Sandwich Islands a
, diary of their trip to that point.
The fourth is Morita Okaltaro, the
a treasurer of the party-a man who is a
r. prince or lord only by position, not by
i birth. These four are of the Emperor's
* Council. They were all to-day magnifi
' cently dressed, but not very difttrent in
e appearance from the first officers of the
. Candinmarro. They wore embroidered
silk robes, each one wearing a sword of
he beautiful workmanship, the blades of
h' the finest steel.
"g We were allowed to circulate among
ed the company, and to ask all the ques
tions thatour curiosity suggested. The
at son of the first interpreter put our que
ird ries into shape, and gave back such an
swers as were tendered. One with a
clean shaved head and his bare feet
ca thrust into sandals, pulled out of his
the belt some cash to show us. The coppers
tie were : first, a zane, around coin about
it' the size of our new neckel; second; a
- quan-al, the size of the red cent which
citizens are in the habit of dropping in
di to the Washington monument box;
to third, an oblong tempo, about the size
of an English penny, witha square hole
0on in the center, and about 2 cents value.
We were curious to see their silver
on coin, and succeeded after considerable
he hunt in getting sight of their itzebue,
se valued at 32 1-2 cents, their ne-che-yu
* valued 16 cents, and theirechewoo of
ce- half the value of the preceding. Of
their gold, we saw none, but we were
We told that they had two gold coins-the
cobang, worth about $4 44 and the

ed The Japanese officials all seemed
es. quick with the pencil. One was busy
he sketching the appearance of the city
of from the deck; one did a visitor fromon
shore the honor to-stetch his personal
, appearance. On the trip they filled
ol- their note-books with copies of mach-
rd's nery on board. The officers of the ship
rho say they could not possibly have carried
ba seventy men of any other nation who

In the intercourse of the officers of the
' Navy Yard with the Japanese officers,
some curious facts were evolved, show
ing a similarity of origin between the
Japanese aad our North American In
dians. It was found that several Jap
anese words nearly coincided with
words having a similar meaning in use
among some of the Indian tribes. For
example the Japanese word for aste is
hayacks; the Oregon Indian word for speed
is hyack. When this similarity was
named to the Japanese, they remarked
that it was not unlikely that it might be
attributed to the landing-of their junks
on our shores. The following facts,
which we obtain from Mr. Charles Wol
cot Brooks, go in a measure to justify
d the presumption that Japanese junks
have roved a good deal more than is
d generally supposed :
Many years ago a Japanese junk was
cast assay on Kui, Sandwich Islands.
Another was found on the coast of Up
I per Oregon, a few years ago.
One was found below Petropanishi,
in Kamskatcha, some 200 years since; of
which an account may be found in Find
s I ley's Pacific Sailing Directions.
Capt. N. C. Brooks, on the cruise of
:y the Gambia, found ihe remains of a junk,
of Japanese construction, on Ocean
Island, one of the group northwest of
the Sandwich Islands, of which French
to Frigate Shoals is a part.
The same navigator, some two years
s after, picked up an abandoned junk in
e, latitude 42 deg. N. and longitude 10G
deg. W., 900 miles from land.
Four years ago, another junk was
r- found near Guam, of the Ladrone
n In 1848, Capt. Cox. of New London,
Ct., when bound north on a whaling
0 cruise, crossed a disabledunk, and took
from her fifteen or twenty of her crew.
g He carried them into the Okotech Sea,
and landed them finally at Lahaine, af
or ter having them some six or eight
months on board.
Hence the supposition that some Jap
nese vessel may have been driven on
ho the Oregon coast with her crew is by
no means improbable. Before the ex
n pulsion of the Jesuits, the Japanese
built sea-going vessels. After that
a time, as a measure of their Home poli
cy, junks were, by an Imperial edict,
he built with an open stern, on purpose
to compel them to stick to the coast.
The Japanese insist that there are no
isy words in their language which resemble
words of the same meaning in the Chi
nose language, or which have been de
he rived from a common root. This fact
e would seem to prove that the two races
are of decidedly different origin.
of FAITH rs HUMAN Naluax.-The Cafe
Foy is a celebrated restaurant. It has,

s- back, or ask an explanation from any

out five years an individual had breakfasted
