The Second District Republican
Congressional Convention, which
met in Shakopee yesterday, was
the most harmonious and enthusi
astic convention that we have ever
attended. The resolutions adopted
have, as a Dakota county delea-ate
remarked, the true old Republican
ring in them. After the reports of
the various committees had been dis
posed of the convention took an in
formal ballot, with, the following

Jennesen further balloting was dis
pensed with, and H. B. Strait was
declared the unanimous choice of
the convention, amidst great enthu
siasm. A committee was then ap

nomination for a fourth term, and
upon his appearance in the hall he
Was greeted with deafening ap'plause.
The Major then made a brief but
pointed speech, thanking the con
vention for the honor of his renomi
nation. His remarks were repeated

the conclusion of Mr. Strait's re
marks, Gen. Jennesen requested the
chairman of the contention to call
on Senator McMilliari, who was in
the hall, for a few remarks. The
Senator responded with a ringing
speech, and at its conclusion the
convention adjourned, all the dele
gates being well satisfied with the
work of the convention.

The Republican Congressional con
vention of the third district, which
assembled at Minneapolis last
Wednesday, terminated much more
happily than there was reason to ap
prehend. The differences arising out
of an unfair and illegal apportion
ment wero amicably settled, and
William D. Washburn was nomina
ted by acclamation, Dr. Stewart hav
ing withdrawn from the contest. Dr.
Stewj^t was interviewed by a Globe
reporter as soon as the result of the
convention became known, and from
the doctors expressions it is inferred
that he will become an independent
candidate. While it is not to be de
nied that Stewart was treated un
fairly all round, we hope that the
rumor has no foundation, as his
candidacy now would insure the elec
tion of a Democrat from that district.
The Democratic Congressional con
vention for this district meets at blu=
kopee to-morrow to nominate some
man for Strait to beat. We understand
that II. Behnke will represent Brown
county, in the convention.

The Liver is the imperial organ of

the life, health and happiness of man.
When it is disturbed in its prober ac

movement of the heart and blood, the
action of the brain and nervous system,
are all immediately connected with the

that we had rather walk beneath an avenue of trees

The morning was ushered in by thefiringof guns.
Guns and powder secured our independence, and we
wished to pay homage to the fact not
the homage of barbarism but of civiliza
tion. At 10, the people began to gatheras jolly
rollicking, mercurial and lively a cre\f as you,
would-desire to look upon. An efficient committee
was appointed, a programme arranged, and every
thing carried out to the letter. Mr. Eldrid was on
lime and discoursed eloquently on the beauties of
Independence, the regeneration of politics, the self
ishness of factious, and the impolicies and errors of
our leaders. The oration showed much thought and
On the piazza sat our friend behind a table, and
before him an enthusiastic crowd cultivating the
luxury of coolness as he dealt out the Icedlemo
nade and delicious ice-cream. There was an at
mosphere aronndWhipple's table that breathed as if
it were iced sherbet.
At 1 o'clock, dinnor was served, and judging by
the manner the people discussed it in the cool,
shady porch, it was a success. After being refreshed
on the whitest bread, the freshest butter, and other
things equally praise-worthy, the races began,
foot-racn, sack-race, horse-race and wheelbarrow
racc.Our tall friend come oft'No. 1 in the barrow race,
but the boys say that lie saw ont of one eye. His
steps were ontreadling and uplifting. In the eve
ning the air was illuminated with rockets, and the
arbor was luminous w,ith colored lanterns. Young
men and maidens looked like walking shadows, and
our tall friend like a Jewish High Priest, as they
emerged from the somber background of leaf and
bud and bloom into the more luminous rays of the
balmy, embowered avenue.
All day long, from sunrise to sunset, the air rang
with torpedoes, crackers, and pistols. Fred Jr. is
firing an old rusty musket, to the great delight of a
crowd of smaller boys. Isaac is sending up a big
glaring rocket, which scintillates like a succession
of falling stars. Sylvester is making the welkin
ring with the anvil chorus, which thunders with a
1000 airy voices, as though a bombardment had re
ally begun. In the swing sits our worthy friend,
gyrating like a revolving shaft, and by excess of
levolution orlemonade (don'tknow which)fallsjout

mother earth. (Speak it gently.) This grove to
which we have alluded was put up on Mr. Hart
wicks grounds, forming a connection with the mag
nificent domes of leaf and bough that already deck
his forest-covered home. Mr- Hartwick has a nat
ural love for trees, and his place is a picture of
these columnar glories. While time shatters liv
ing temples, we hope no sacrilegious hand will pro
fane thistabernacle, but that thesetrees shall strike
their roots wider and wider with every year, and
continue to cast their round of welcome shadows
with every 4th of July. By the way "oar, indefatig

OUR WASHINGTON CORRESPOND-
ENT I N EUROPE.
Here we are atJast after a most magnificent trip
across the Atlantic, during which we "took
(but not by force) the interesting and wellworth
seeing citiesspf Halifax, Nova Scotia and St. Jomvs,
Newfoundland. Until I arrived at the last named
place, I had been in the habit, with most other citi
zens of the U. S.,of calling it NewFotraBland, with
the accent on the second syllable, but the New
fOUiidlanderscallHNewfonndi.Ain withthe ac
sentuation on-the last syllable, whichlogically and
rhetorically considered, is doubtless correct Geo
graphers, and the teachers in our public schools,
will please take notice accordingly.
Your Correspondent left Baltimore, bythe steam
ship "Hibernian" of tho "Allan" Line, on Wednes
day morning tho 5th of June, 9 A. M. sharp. The
"Hibernian" is a magnificent boatof 3000 tons, com
manded by Capt. William Richardson a bonny good
Scotchman from Dumfriesshire, and a thorough
sailor. This boat in common with all the steamers
of the Allan Line, is provided with all the most
recent improvements, elegant staterooms, ana a
saloon, the entire width of the ship. We had quite
a large party from Baltimore who "saw off" a
number of their friends, and we went down tho
sparkling Chesapeake merry as a marriage bell.
But alas! the fun was not destined to last long.
About twenty miles down the bay, the party of \tl
Baltimorians left us in tho tugboat |"Maryland"
amidst the wafting ofhats, caps, and hankerchiefs,
and then we were left entirely to onrown resources
and the ship's officers.
Somehow or other, passengers on board an At
lantic steamer seem always to have enormous ap
pehtes on the first day out. Every man,
woman and child onboard, promptly put in an ap
pearance at breakfast, luncheon and dinner on this
our first day out. Even those of frail constitntlona
scouted theidea ofseasickness,socalm, and smooth
was the water andthere was scarcely as much mo
tion on the steamer as in a railway train. The Al
lan line of steamships are all constructed with
what is nautically termed a "broad beam hence
they roll lessthan other steamers ofexcessive length
in proportion to their width, and even in a heavy
sea, they are staunch and steady as compared with
other boats in which I have crossed. Congratula
ting ourselves upon our good luck we all "turnoa
in" at ten o'clock at nightbut few of us "turned
out" again in tho morning. During the night, we
had passed the cape and got fairly out into old
Neptune's domains, who rocked us, fatherly like,
in the cradle of the deep. Being well myself, I
could not help notice that those of our passengers
who did not have courage enough to appear on the
breakfast table seemed all to have a suddenandpe
culiar hankering after "porridge," or oatmeal
gruol and the delicious salmon steaks, chicken
and lobster salads, lamb's fries, and tenderlion
steaks,went a begging and wereentirely discarded.
There was a universal demand for porridge in tho i
saloon, and for tin basins in the staterooms, which
kept the stewards as busy as bees in the honey sea
son. At luncheon and dinner, much the same state
of affairs prevailed and a Baltimore gentleman who
made bold to appear at the dinner table and par
take of sucking pig which formed one of the items
ot the Bill of Fare, told mo confidentially three days
afterwards, when I saw him again on the deck as
wo were approaching Halifax, that he had thrown
his pig overboard half an hour after dinner- Such
is life on the Ocean Wave!
But three or four days at sea wilt cure almost the
weakest stomach of seasickness and by degrees
the seats at the tables became filled and full justice
was done to the excellent fare. Ale, Porter nnrt*
Sherry gradually usurped the plaee.of Gingcr-Beer.

amateur "minstrel troup" was- formed for th.^,
amusement of the passengers, of which your cor
respondent hadthe honor of being one*of the "end
men my nose is black yet, because theburnt cork
has rubbed into the skin and wont getoff! and we
had games of "shumeboards," or 'horse-billiards"
as the sailors call it, on the quarterdeck every fore
noon. We saw lots of whales, dolphins, and other
finny animals, and sailed into the harbor of Hali
fax, Sunday evening, Juno 9th, where we were to
remain till Tuesday noon, following-. This gave us
abundant time to "do" this interesting city, which
we did in the most approved manner, visiting in a
body, the famous Roman CatholicCathedral, the ci
tadel, the Armory, the Navy Yard, and the British
ironclad 'Bellerspjion,' which is the flagship of the
North Atlantic squadron. Wherevecwewent, we
were received with courtesy and hospitality onr
only passport was that of being Citizens of the U.
S., but that was enough to insure ns a friendly re
ception. Some of us visited the Colonial Asylum
for the Insane, which is situated at Dartmouth,just
opposite Halifax on the other side of the harbor,
and is of about the same size, and' managed very
much like, tho Government Lunatic Asylum (no
joke on the Capitol!) at Washington.
Leaving Halifax at noon on Tuesday, we arrived
at St. Johns, Newfoundland, the following Thurs
day afternoon, and remained there about.twohours
and a half.' The entrance tothe harborof St. John's
is one of the finest in the world immense cliffs rise
almost perpendicularly from tne water to a height
of six hundred feet, leaving a narrow pass or, en
trance just wide enough for two ships.to pass each
other. The scenery is grand and wiW in the town
itself there is not much to see except- dried codfish
and newfoundland dogs. A fine pup, genuine,
breed, can be bought for about a dollar, and a half,
and it might pay an enterprising yankee to comeri,
up here and buy up a cargoofthemon speculation
Wholesale they can doubtless be bought cheaper!*
The run of seven days from St. John's to Liver
pool was attended by the finest weather it has ever
been my good fortune to witness o the broad At
lantic. Seasickness was a legend ofthepast, and por
ridge was nowhere. The passengersbecame fastidi
ous and indulged in nothingless than sardines, and
ox-tail soup, squabs on toast, "and sich" at meals,4
and in the evoniugs we had mock trials, musical
performances, and private theatricals on board.
Among onr passengers from Halifax for England
was the Lord Bishop of Nova Scotia with his wife
and two daughters, and on onr last Sabbath at sea
we had an excellent service onboard, after the
Church of England Ritual, which was held by his
Lordship in the spacious saloon, and to which all
the steerage passengers (among whom there wcre
many "redcoats" or british soldiers) and Bailors
The outlying rocks off Cape Clear, on the south
coast of Ireland, were sighted about noon on Wed
nesday the 19th of June, and' about eleven o'clock
the same evening we arrived at Queenstown, where
we landed some passengers and the malls. Early
yesterday morning [the 20th,] we passedthe wreck
of the steamer 'Idaho' of the Williams and Guion
line, which went ashore [without loss of life fortu
nately] on the Irish coast, on her way from New
York to Liverpool, a short time ago. About ten
feet of her masts could be seen above water, that
was all. Farther np we passed the place where,
some twenty years ago, the "Royal Charter" was
lost onher homeward voyage from Australiaon the
Welch coast, on theother side of Holyhead coming
up the channel. A tall pillar, close to'-highwater
mark, marks the graveof the three hundred people
who perished here!
Next came the smoke of Liverpool, hanging like,
a black cloud in the distance We passed the vil
lages ofBrightonand Waterloo on theMersey shot
by the picturesque old foot atthe former place, ana,
soon were in full sight ofthe enormous docks and
tall chimneys of this, the second largest city in the
United Kingdom. With tho exception of the first
two or three days ont from Baltimore, our voyage
had been one of unalloyed pleasure, thanks to the
fine weather, the excellent sea-going qualities of*
the "Allan" boats, and the efforts of onr gallant
Captain and the stoppages at Halifax and St.
John's had the happy efifect of breaking the mono- 1
tony of the voyage, besides introducingthetraveler?.-^ A
