A
Pursuant to a call published in sev
rai oi me city papers lor a mass
meeting ot the Republican party op
posed to the nomination made by the
Columbus Convention on the 13th inst.
Urge crowd assembled on Fifth-
r.reet market-space last eveninz.
The meeting was called to order by
E. P. Norton, Esq., who nominated
W. A. Adams, Lsq., -of the First
Ward, as Chairman, which was ac
quiesced in.
The following gentlemen were then
appointed Vice Presidents: Griffin

hurst J. W. Dudley, A. P. Johnson,
lomu. Edwards, J. M. Huston, W.
H. H. Taylor, J. F. Cunningham,

On motion of Mr. J. II. Beard, the
following gentlemen were appointed a
committee to report resolutions for the
action of the meeting: E. P. Norton,
G. W. Runyan, E. S. Lippitt, Geo.
Carlisle, R. S. Newton, S. C. Park
liurst. The Chairman stated that, as the
resolutions were prepared, the Chair
man, of the committee would read
them.
Mr. Norton the Chairman of the
Committee on Resolutions, then read
the following preamble and resolutions:
Whereas, The Democratic State
Convention of the 8th of January last,
and the recent Convention in Colum
bus, have failed to avow or recognize
principles which we believe vital to
the welfare of the Republic and our
State; therefore,
Resolved, That we continue to main
tain as paramount in importance, and
never to be ignored, the well-known
principles ot the American Dartv
among which is devotion to the Union,
ana unceasing nosunty to its enemies,
ve uiey me uuuuers oi me sown or
the Abolitionists of the North.
Resolved, That while we consider the
repeal of the Missouri Com promise a
wanton violation of a sacred and times
honored compact, and are not Irom re-
entment or any other impulse to be se
duced or driven into the support of fa
natical men or measures.
Resolved, That we recognise in the
rery first resolution of the convention
of the 13th inst. a subtle and insidious
aim at the Utegrity of the National
Government, and the initiator of leg
islation which will place the State of
unio in antagonism to the Union."
' Resolvei, That the avowal made in
retplution of the Convention of the
13th lost, to labor assiduously, not to
secure tbe repeal of the Nebraska and

and said it had been a long time since
ne bad addressed a crowd in the open
air, and it would be a long time betore
he would doit asain. lie had devo.
ted twenty-six years to politics, but
was now no longer a politician. The
Judge said ha did not belong to the K.
N. party, so called. He was born
with broad feet, and their platform was
entirely too narrow for hi in to stand
upon, tie then referred to the old
Whig party, of which, he said, be
was a member, and proceeded to de
line the old Whi2 principles. In the
old Whig party he had fought side bv
siue wi'.u unage as a mil?, and tuo't
the party treated Chase badly, because
they did not give him an office. The
Judge then proceeded to review the
politicM transformations of Chase, and
said he was not opposed to him because
ol his qualifications, but because he
was a man or stratagem, of bareain

before, and would do it again. He
(Chase) was a man who drove noliti
cal bargains, and would sell that which
every man ot honesty or principle
knew should be the free gift ol a peo-
pie. l tie Judge next referred to the
manner of Chase's nomination, which
he said was the work of Joshua Gid-
dings and old Ned Smith, and a few
other men oi the same kind, who made
war againrt their own country. Chase
was the candidate of the old school
Old-Line-DissoIution-of-the-Union
Neck-ornothing party. The conven
tion which nominated him was packed,
and a humbug Giddings figured at
the head and Smith dangled at the tail.
1 hey came there to get the lion's share,
and they accomplished it. He then
demonstrated that Chase was the nomi
nee of a party who favored the disso
ution ot the Union, and the represen
tative of men more ultra and bitter in
their feelings than the nullifies of the
boutn. Lhase was a man of but one
idea, and he never knew a man of one
idea who was honest. It was impos
sible for a narrow-minded bigot to be
nonest. unase looked all over the
world through a goose quill, and saw
nothing but a little nigger dangling at
the end of it.
The Judge's speech was illustrated
throughout with many happy, witty
and saicastic anecdotes and compari
sons, which were heartily received,
ie poured a broadside into the Aboli
tion lactionists, and concluded by an
nouncing his determination to support
the greater portion of the regular Dem
ocratic ucKet.
Colonel Chambers then offered the
following as a substitute for the reso
utions presented by the committee:
Resolved, 1 hat this meeting recoe
nizes the importance of the union ot
the States as paramount to all sectional
or personal interests, and that any ism.

Resolved, That we deem slavery
great social and political evil, and
would regret to see its evil influences
extend over any further portion of the

the repeal of the Missouri Compro
mise, in the passage of the Kansas
and Nebraska bill of Senator Douglas,
and desire the restoration of the com

Resolved. That we hereby nominate.
aud will support for the office of Gov

ican, an honest man, and an able poli

Kansas and Nebraska Bill and alike
firm in his devotion to the Union. i
"Humblfe as I am," said the speak-.
er, "1 am tired of folio win? the medi
ocre leaders who are so prominently
thrust forward." The gallant and
learned colonel then descanted upon
in miserable conglomeration ot ele
ments thrust forward in the convention
at Columbus, in which he said twenty-three
millions of free white men
were to be sacrificed for two millions
of slaves. The speaker concluded by
an eainest appeal to his hearers not to
compromise themselves by voting for
a. r. unase.
He was followed by Dr. Newton,
whose speech throughout was a Fourth
of July oration on a Email scale. He
said that the American party is not the
Abolition party, and that most assur
edly it would not support S. P. Chase
for Governor.
Mr. Norton next took the stand, and
pitched in indiscriminately to the Ab
olitionists of the South. He said that
the convention at Greenwood Hall was
an abortion. The American party
must look well to themselves or they
would be lost in the fanatical whirl
pool of Abolitionism.
Here there was a considerable rum
pus, in the course of which the amend
ment as offered by Col. Chambers was
put, but lost by a decisive majority.
The original resolutions were then
put and carried, a general determina
tion being evinced by the speakers to
ignore unase, one ot the orators ex
pressing his determination in the fol-
owing manner,namely: '1 can't, shan t
in no way, shape, lorra or manner, go
or unase."
Three cheers were then given for
Marine Ruffner, after which the meet
ing adjourned.
Masonic At the recent Masonic
Festival in Milford, Mass., the follow
ing toasts were offered:

Sir Knight Wiseman Mirshal of the
Boston Encampment, responded in an
eloquent and poetic strain of this sen
timent.
At the close of his remarks, tbe fol
lowing sentiment from the ladies them
selves was read: -
"Our Masonic Huabands and Lovers

lug Mr, Chase in October."
At tbe close of Mt. Jones' re marfca
the committee on resolutions, through

The seventh declares that the Stel

The eighth denounces Mr. Chas'a

served for eight years in Congress.
Tbe following resolution was then
adopted unanimously.
Reaolved, That a committee of cor

six members, whose duty it shall be to
open an active correspondence with the
opponents of the "Fusion" ticket

rrora mis, ana Irom reliable private
sources, I gathered tbe following points
iiuid wnicn u win ne seen that tbe de
tense was conducted with immense
ability and address, while the attack
was both slovenly and confused:
rirsii ne Russian were aware of
tne precise moment at which the as
sami was lo bff made, ...The njture and
me vivacity oi the bombardment indi
cated clearly enough that an assault was
to follow, b'Jt we are not told how the
Russian com-nanders rleerne4 that the
hour was three in the mornine. This
shows coacluiively that the allies will,
never find the enemy off their guard. ,

these works had not really suffered as
we bad the right to suppose they had

armament of Malakoff had been chang

for grape had been substituted for the

LOSS OF LIFE IN THE WAR'

loesses of life since the declaration of

count the mortality on board the ships

SABBATH MORNING.
the world, like some cool grotto, where be
may be refreshed bf the wind from Heaven,
which breathe nothing but holiness and peaot
into his soul. ..
All Is calm ami still, and the whole creation
eems so full of love to God that it can but
smile it back to heaven. The muste of the
church-bells in the distance; some full, and
some more clear, assumes to our ear, tones
we have heard long, long ago, that hwre pass
ed away forever; and we might deem, them
angels' voices, calling us hom e. if tha world
was not so bright and beautiful that tliev
seem telling ui to mike a heaven hire in an
ticipation oi tne next, uoi and a pure he it
form a heaven anywhere.
It is the hour of Sabbath school: we seem
onco more wending out war thronah the oU
church-yard, and up the well remembered
aisle, to the seat where Sabbath after Sabbath
weasdeinbled with our class-mates, to listen
to the words of holy instruction which fall
from the lips of our kind teacher. I see her yet
with her mild face, adaotins the Wrnls of
Sacred Writ to our youthful comprehension,
and praying us to love God for the sake o f
the love we bore to her. Many years'inter
course with the world may harden our heasts
but the recollection of those blesed hours,
and the prayers of that dear teac her can never
be utterly effaced, while life continues.

'Fall Short 50,00 to 80,000 votes.'
Tints continues to
poke sharp (ticks at the abolition candi
date for Governor, Chase, "and predicts
that he will Vfell short fifty' to eighty
thousand votes of reaching the Guber
natorial chair." The Timta eaya : ,
"Mr. Chase has but on body of vo
ters in the Stat upon whom he can
confidently rely tbe Abolitionists
who do not number more than from
twenty to thirty thousand. All the sup
pott beyond this must come from on
other source only, from old line Whigs,
fossil politicians who never forget any
thing and uever learn anything, whose
impulses arise solely from their chron
ic anti Democratic feeling, without ref
erence to any other consideration what
ever. "The great body of the American par
ty connot and will not vote for Mr.
Chase, for he is opposed to tb princi
ples and policy of the American Demo
cratic party, which exclusive of Aboli-
Uouistsand old Whigs, who hav crept
into it for sinister purposes: numkers
least one hundred thousand voters ia
Ohio. This great bodr 1 not raco?nl
zed in the platform of th Thirteenth of
July Convention; and more, was gross
ly insulted and stigmatised by Giddingt
the right hand man of Chase. Tbe lib
eral Whigs will not vote for Chase,
because be sold himself th Dem
ocracy for the United States Senator

Chase, for. though tbey loved th tree
on, they dislike the traitor. There ate
none to vol for Mr. Chase then, but

Quite a difference between tha fig- .

would be elected by from forty to eighty
thousand majority.
