General Slocum. from the Committee on Resolu tions, reported that the Committee had not yet prepared a draft of the platform, bwt reported an address to the NalintMl Democratic Cuuvea- tion, declaring the objects or the Conservative Soldiers and S.tilor to lie the oaiae as antmatml them during the war; deploring Radical legfedo- tion; denouncing the apoetney uf men who were once Uemocrats; declaring that crime were now being perpetrated in the name or Repnblleaniatn oad loyalty, not lws amnning than tbo-e com mitted hy the armed foes of the Government du ring the war. The address makes a long Indict ment against the Republican party lor many sets since it came Into pewer, sad "declare the belief that they intend, by use of the armv under Grant's supreme control, to caiw the electoral vote of eme State" to be cast for hiasself by force and fraud. It also declares the solemn conviction that the free institutions of the coun try have never been in greater jeopardy than now, and tbey look to the deliberations of the Democratic party now assembled In Convention with the greatest cnxiety. believing that on their action depends the future prosperity of our country. The address expresses the belief that there a"re now living half a million or men who served in the army of the country, who are in sympathy and judgment oppoed to the acts nf trot riartv in nnvnr: ctml nt l.wutt half a tnfUinn more who have heretofore acted with the Repnb- lican party, but viewing arts of that party, ere no ng itu alarm Uie recent now anxious for a change of adminis (ration. The addre closes by de claring that with a platform of principles reviv ing no dead issues, but looking only to the arrest of existing evils, and with candidates whose fidelity to the Constitution and devotion i to the countrr cannot be nuemtioniHl. we nlmtl co-operate with the Democracy in this campaign ( with enthusiasm, and with confidence that will bring victory and aalvatien to the country. A j motion was unanimously carried that the report be accepted, and a committee of twenty-one was 1 appointed to present the same to the Democratic Convention. A motion was carried that the States be called in order for the presentation of resolutions presented, and referred. Alabama was called, but failed to respond. The Courentiou adjourned to ten o'clock, x. it. to-morrow. JCbw Vobt, July 7 Th Soldiers' and S1lnr Convention met ut noon. General Franklin not being proent, owing to Indisposition, General Denver, of California, took the chair. Mr. Slocum reported a rcsolntlon from the committee on platform, reciting that the Inter change of opiuion had with the Democratic Con vention fullv confirmed the former estimate of the nuritv and natrinllsm of that bn.lr.nnd ftlllr justifies the belief that, in the selection of candi dates and the construction or a plaironn tuc Con vention will be governed by tbo spirit of the address adopted by this body; therefore Ilttctved, That we support their nominees, and on onr return home will Induce our late comrades In arms to do likewise. Col. Campbell, of Ohio, moved to lay the re port of the committee on the table, as he was un willing to endorse the Democratic platform or eandldato without knowing what they were. A sceno of great confusion ensued, Tlio vote was finally taken by States, and Campbell's mo tion wos lost. Tho roportof the committee waaadoptcd, with only seven votes in tho negative. General Ewing introduced a resolution favor ing tho preservation and integrity of the National securities, declaring tho withdrawal of the nation al currency nnd the substitution of greenbacks was a policy favoring tho few as against the many, tending to induce repudiation. General Ewing supported hU resolution in a lengthy speech. A delegate from California raised the point of order that the resolution should go to the com mittee without debate. A motion to suspend the rules and allow the rosolution to bo passed was lost 78 to 197 m the resolution went to tbo committee. Tbo platform of tho Democratic Convention was then read and received with applause, A resolution accenting the platform was unan imously passed. General Ruckner.lato of tho Confederate nray, was called for and greeted with cheers. Ho said ho wanted dead issues buried, as bravo soldiers on both sides had been buried, and both sections of the country united in amity and peace. A resolution afllrming tho continuance of tho confidence and love entertained by tho Conven tion for Geo.' McClollao was. offered by Cfeporal N DIRER 31. Slocum and received with tremendous cheering.

A resolution of thanks to President Johnson for removing Stanton was passed under suspen sion of the rules. A vote of thanks to the officers or the Conven tion was passed, and thereupon the Convention ndjourned sine die. Lovers in a Fix. Tho Memphis (Tonn.) Arrjru, relates tho following: Night before last, as the moon rose over the hills nnd dusty tree tops, gilding the spires of our beautiful eily with her' silver rays, there might have been seen upon the roof of an Etyptian cottage, which is tint and covered with pure white gravel ind pitch, a couple of lovers, seated and enjoying the beauty cd" the scene, and, Though few the hours, the hnppy moments few, So warm with heart, no rich with love they flew. That their full souls forgot to roam, And rested there as in a dream of home. The sun during the day had been very warm, and thus they met to spend the fleet ing hours of twilight, enjoying tho pleasant breeze .that flouted up from the magnolia garden lieneath, and interchanged those soul-longinga nnd warm allections for each other, the lovers sat ; with one arm he en circled the waist of the fair creature at his side: "Her little hand lay lovingly, confidingly in his," and all pass lovingly and quietly until the bell tolled the midnight hour. . "None but the loving and beloved. . Should be awake at that sweet hour.' The tolling of the bell reminded them that, 7 Tired Nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleep," was requisite for lovers as vraV. as ethers. Still seated near each other the plighM vows were exchanged and staled with kesvs, like "Linked sweetness long drawn ouL" At length after many efforts to sever those pleasures, the transported lovers found they were bound to each other by more sticking bonds than lovers vows. The hot sun had melted the pitch, and after sitting so long, and the night air having cooled the resinous matter, they were "ituck fast." The young gentleman tlrst attempted to disengage him self, but found like Aunt Jemima's plaster, u the more you try to pall it oif, the tighter it sticks the faster." The young lady then tried to get up, which she did, minus the skirl of her drer-s and all of her underclothes as far as the "tilterss.'' In this plight she at tempted to remove her disconsolate partner, but it was no use he couldn't come. After some parley he concluded he could manage it bv (dipping off his pant. Accordingly he asked of bis companion the loan of a pair of pant until he could get home. She thought her pa's would do if "they were not too long. With this information he slipped off his boots, and looking his suspenders, drew him self out nf his pants as easily as possible, and the disconsolate couple took "themselves down stairs in a very blushing manner. The lady procured as quickly as possible a pair of her fathers pants, which were run into pretty quick, and the Adonis decamped with his pants rolled up about six inches. The joke was too good to bo kept; by little and littlo it leaked out until the truth had to como to exculpate the happy innocents. UXCLE TOHT OX TIIK MlSKlUES OF PRINT ING a Xewipapeb. 'I pity the printer," said my uncle Toby. "He's a poor creature," re joined Trim. "How so 7" Batd my uncle. Because, in the first place, continued the cor poral, "he must endeavor to please everybody. In the negligence of a moment, perhaps a paragraph jiops in upon him; ho hastily and he is ruined to ail intent and purposes. "Too much the case, Tim," said my uncle with a deep sigh, "too much the case." "And please your honor," continued Trim, elevating his voice, and striking into an im ploring attitude, and please your honor, this is not the whole." "Go on, Trim, said my uncle feelinglj-. "The printer, Fotnetitnca will," pursued Trim, "hit upon a piece that pleases him, and he thinks it cannot but go down with sub scribers ; but, alas, sir, who can calculate up on the human mind ? He inserts it, and it is all over with him. They forgive other?, but thoy cannot forgivo a printer. He has a hast to print for, and every one sets up for a critic The pretty miss exclaims, ""Whydonthogivc us more poetry, marriages and bon imU Away with these stale pieces." The politi cian claps his specs on his nose, and runs it over in search of some violent invective; ho finds none; ho takes oft his stcs, folds them, sticks them in his pocket, and declares the paper good for nothing but to burn. Every one thinks it ought to bo printed expressly for himself, as he is a subscriber; and yet af ter all this complaining, would you believe, it, sir," said the honest corporal beseechingly -"would you believe it, there are some sul scribcrs who do not hesitate to cheat tho printer out of his pay f Our army swore ter ribly in Flanders, but they never did any thing so bad as that.'' "Never !" responded my uncle Toby, em phatically. A rnr.NCHMA.v, trying to give a description of the negro race, said it was a very strong race "not strong like a horse but strong like a sk nk." This is tho African scent of which wo hear so much, and liko a certain counterfeit coin, it is a bad cent. A Fr.u.O'.v being asked if ho was afraid i to meet his God, answered, "No; I'm only afraid of t'other chap." .
