no difficulty in getting very excellent board at

Crowd, and instead of 10,000 or 16,000, far
whom accommodations had be?n provided, we
supfidit that the numbfr of ruitors did not exceed
3,000 or 4,0f)0. Tho principal llotels had
gone to great expense in providing for the occasion,
and will no doubt aastain great Tom. ,
Soon after our arrinal we sallied out to aU

body of the citizens who ttrere excluded from
the Ilnll of the Convention regaled themselves
by attending nightly before the Mills House
and the Charleston Hotel, and calling out
prominent orator* from different sections of
the Uuiun. These epeeoliea were geuerally of
a high order of ability, and were very entertaining.
On the evening in qucttion the
crowd had been entertained by speeches from
Mayor Wood, of New York, and others, and
wore now proceeding to the Charleston Hotel
to call out Wm. L. Yanct, Judge Meek, and
others. After calling until they were hoarse,
apologies were made for tliese gentlemen, and
the assembly had to content themselves with
others. Gauldem, of Georgia, made a strong
speech in behalf of the slave trade, and Uayes,
of Tennerace, an eloquent Appeal in behalf of
Democratic harmony, and an able exposition of
the principles of the party. The next night.
uic Home scene was re-enactctl, witli more of
popular tumult and disorder. Wood was call
ed for without effect. Gauldkn gave a rehauli
of hie slave trade speech, and O. J. Wis*, of
Va., whilst indulging in sorce distasteful remarks
raised a popular atorm which made a
Babel of confusion for au hour. Qr.iet was. fi

served to exhibit the discordant elements of
