Aeicpatefl should go away without expressing un
opinion. Ho roofed tbat a committee ba lortnctl
( members from every State to draft resolutions.
Me trusted that tho Union men of the North and
Haath would come together In a Union Conven
tion. We have to fight the battles of the Houth
ern Union men. We have come here to net
W. D. Kelley. All that Governor Morton has
aid a to the importance of coming together
I approve. He made some witty remarks about
outsiders. He proposed that the meeting ad
journ, to Iollow the legitimate duties of the
Convention. He moved that they adjourn to
meet at the call of the President of the Conven
tion. Senator Grime, of Iowa, not tooln present,
dementi Yandevecr was named aa Vice-President
from Iowa.
Governor Curtin then put the resolution, that
the meeting express their approbation of the
proceedings of Congress. Carried by acclama
tion. He then put the motion of Judge Kelley, that
the meeting adjourn to meet ut the call of the
President. Carried.
ieneral Wilson, of Massachusetts, then spoke.
By invitation of Governor Curtlu. the Gov
ernors, and as Governors of States, meet at th
League House.
The Chairman: This Convention has ad
journed to listen to the action of the Loyal
Southern Convention, and he proposed to wait
tor their action, and to bid them God-speed in
their action to secure the freedom of all. He
proposed to open our ears to those who have
been true to our country during the war, and to
listen to their wrongs, and to the remedies they
propose to correct the injustice heaped on thm.
Loud calls were then made for General Butler.
General Lane, ol Indiana, then said: Fello
cltlzens, freemen, "if any man attempts to tear
down the American flair let him be shot on the
spot" that whs our cry through the war. He
eaid that the Rebels and Copperheais were
engaged in doing so all through the war. We
stand upon the grand utterances ol the Declara
tion of Independence. There are peculiar cir
cumstances attending our nieotine. Speecri is
untrammelled. There is no man wnose antece
dents make it nccesarv to exclude hira.
We have utqeniblrd to announce to the world
freedom to all, free speech, and universal sut
frage. He was a radical member ol a radical Con
gress, and stands upon the platform of constitu
tional amendments; and if we stand Arm, the
-very gates ol bell cannot stand against us. He
believes in universal suffrage, and said tnat a
soldier who had fought for the Union should
have as much, at least, as a reconstructed Rebel
and unhung traitor. (Tremendous cheers.)
The trump of judgment should sound before
the great Rebels be admitted to Congress. He
advocated the repudiation of the Rebel debt.
There is no one that cannot agree to that.
Another Is that Congress should have power
to carry out the laws ot the Htates avd Terri
tories. He came to say Indiana was more in earnest
than ever In the pood cause. The people will
take care ol the country. The press, tho people,
the clergy are luithlul, but kind Providence has
been eood to us, and given us prosperity. We
shall succeed. He enid he should live to trample
on the grave of every Rebel, although advanced
in vears.
General Chamberlain, of Maine. (Cheering.)
lie declared his pleasure to express his interest
in the sentiment of the meeting. He wished to
express his kind wishes to all who were gath
ered together to give their sympathies to the
great cause.
A meeting of the delegates from New York
assembled in the large assembly-room of tfle
Union League, at 11 o'clock this morning.
There were a number of distinguished men
from all the States present.
Governor Curtin stated the purposes of the
Governor Haw ley, of Connecticut, followed,
expressing a hope to do something in union
with the great Convention.
Gov. Morton, of Indiana, said we must meet
to help the Southern Unionists. lie said that
the Northern delegates should meet and help
the Unionists from the South. He said we
won't fight the battles of the South in the
He felt sad. Within a year and a half after
the close of the war it is hard to realize the
dreadlul state of affairs. There are mut tarings
and rebellious utterances. He said that the
Rebels were clamorous to be heard in Congress.
He said they wished to sit in Congress and
carry out the principles they could not carry
out in the neu. J.ue success 01 me loyai men
in the South depends on the success of their
friends in the North. It we lose they are exiled.
Only three weeks ago Rebels and their sym
pathizers embraced each other in this city.
These Copperheads are so stained with treason,
that there is no possibility of their being suc
cessful without Rebellion being endoised. It
we are not successful the soldiers fought tn vain.
He expressed a hope that General Grant
would not lean to the South. If we are not
fmccessful, it were better that we let the South
fro peaceably, without the war. He hoped in
the justice and goodness of God, and by His ,
aid we would triumph. (Three cheers for Gov
ernor Morton.)
General Walbridse. ot New York He said
that when the standard of revolt was raued, no
one stood firmer than Senator Chandler, of
Senator Chandler rose, and said that he be
lieved that no one present would deny tho doc
trine ol total depravity a e.xpreexel by Johnson
and Seward. (Groans and hisef 3.)
He said that never has this country been In
such dantrer, but there is licht ahead. The
speeches of Andrew Johnson have satisfied the
people that be Is not tor the Union.
He had too much faith in Providence to
Ittclieve that He will abandon us in this dark
hour. All obstacles will be removed. The
great people will remove the great apostate.
Andrew Johnson has no right to a policy; he
is but the Executive; but he has no right to do
other than to advise Conress, M ho will adopt
it or not, as they choot e. If he executes the
lawc, well and "good. If he does not he is a
traitor, and we'll impeach hira. (Tremendous
cheering tor several minutes.)
He believed there was a ini&aDprebension in
regard to the true issue. He said that Johnson
is but a tool in the band3 of ihe Rebels. There
was not one in ten ot ihe members from the Smith
who was not elected upon the platform of the
acknowledgment ot the Southern and repudia
tion of the Northern debt.
One Union roan said a Rebel General ran
against him on the above principle. He
nuid -that the Southern Reprcentatives from
the Rebels wished to pay bounties to Southern
tsoWiers. Alerandi-r Stephens, sn unwashed
Rebel, be looked on as the worst of all. He
v, accepted the Vice-Presidency of the Rebellion
to carry the Union inn out ot tuu Union.

When Mr. .Speed, as permanent President,
ascended the platlorm, the scene was one ot
wild and bewildering enthusiasm. The vast
audience rose as one man, and with a pro
lonccd shout and the waving of hats and hand
kerchiefs welcomed the ex-Minister of President
Johnson as the presiding officer over their de
(iovernor Hamilton, of Texas, and Hon. Mr.
Hill, of Virginia, who escortod the Hon. Mr.
Speed to the platlorm, were greeted with cheers.
linn. Mr. uurani 1 am requested oy our pre
sident to call upon the gentlemen that have
been named as Vice-Presidents now to take
their scats as the Secretary reads the list.
Amidst great entnusiasm tne gentlemen seve
rally complied, being greeted with hearty ap
plause. rresKieni atpeea men spose as iomows:
Address of President Speed,
Gentlemen of the Convention. Loval men of tho
Soulhotn States aore assembled. I thank yon most
cordially lor tlio compliment you have paid me in
calling me to presiae over me aonoerations ot inis
body. 1 teoi tnat in selecting me lor so nonorauie a
position, you have overlooked the claims ot those
who are more worthy ot and more competent to fill
bo distinguished a position.
1 accept tno post, nowever, ana win enueavor to
discharge the duties oi the office to the Dest of my
ability. It has been my good fortune, gentlomen,
to be the unworthy recipient ol honors under our
Uevernment; but I feel in my heart that the honor
coniened on me this uay by ttna Convention ot
voluntarily associated Southern men, devoted, as
tlieyare, to ihe we 1 1 are ot tnoir country and tne
advancement of freedom's cause, is the highest
honor that I have vet reoelved. ( Applause )
Though with some, perhaps, this may m to be
an unenviable position, yet 1 feel as you tool, that
vie are assembled here upon a grand, a ruumeatous
occasion, and at a time of great national niomout.
W hy arc we here? Why is It that so many ot us
have come lroni the lar distant portions ol the
country f Why have we oom thUB entirely of our
own accord aud at our own expense, and not at tnu
suirvestion and dictation of those in power over us?
Whv is it, I ask, tbtt we are here in this
good o)4 city of Philadelphia (app aue), and,
above all, 1 ask you how aud whyia it that wtien
we did reacn tnis nospiwDie city on ye-teiaay, tne
loval hearts of this loyal people were stirred, and
they turned out almost by mil ions to greet us Why
tliis spectacle? Uid they o mo out upon tlie.-e
streets simply to see men, trail men, who are to-day,
and may not beto-moirowr it maybe that they
greeted us someu nat on our personal accounts, dud
mainly aud chiffly because we were representatives
of a great truth.
It was not to us as lnaiviauaiB, dui io ids princi
ple wo represent, tnat mat welcome was tunuorea.
It was because in our past 1 1 v. s we had suowu de
votion to Drinciple. and because we wore here for
tho purpose of renewing upon the altar ot liberty,
vote ,0 .tand by the p'rinoiplo upon which the
i;ov-rriment is founded. (Applause.! I bee voit.

General Geary, the loyal candidate for tbe
position of Governor of this State, Senator
Wade, of Ohio, and General Butler, of Massachu
setts, were, on motion, invited to take seat
upon the stage. The nume ot Bntler was re
ceived with the most uproarious cheers, and
when he ascended the platform the enthusiasm
was intense.

from Maryland, providing lor the appointment of

consist of two members from each State, to bo
selected bv the deleealions. to whom should be
relerred, without debate, all resolutions declara
tory t principles.
Considerable achate ensued at this point, one
question discussed being the advisability of
making the committee consist ol oue member
irom each State, instead of two.
The question ot separate committees on reso
lutions and on the address was also diirussed
by several gentlemen.
it vas also raovea oy Governor uamutoB. to
omit Irom the resolution tbe words "without
debate," which was warmly advocated by Judge
Sheiwoad, of Texas, who feared that some mat
ters mleht rome before tbe committee which
would slumber there and never come before the
Tbe otiginal motion was then modified by the
mover, so that it should provide for two com
mittees of one member irom each state oue
committee to have charee of the Resolutions-,
and the others of tbe Address.

their credentials should first be submitted to
