Meeting In Behalf of Protection to our
Naturalized citizens Abroad,
Cleveland, Ohio, Dec. 24. A meeting to con
sider tbe rights of naturalized citizens was held
here last night. ' The principal featnre was a
speech by A. O, Tbarman, late Democratic can
dldate for Governor. He spoke at considerable
length, urging protection to naturalized citi
zens wberever placed, and denonnclng the idea
that allegiance to any government survives
naturalization under another.
A preamble and resolutions were adopted
looking towards tbe protection of foreign-born
citizens in the United States everywhere, and
recommending the subject to the early atten
tion of Congress.
Fire at Fortress Monroe.
Fortress Monroe, Deo 21 At about 4 o'clock
this morning tbe a'arm of Dre was heard inside
the Fort, and upon rushing to the spot we
found it to be Carroll Hall, in the room formerly
occupied by Jeff. Davis, but now occupied by
Colonel Henry, of the 1st Artillery. Cblef En
gineer John Baulch was promptly on the spot
with bis steamer No. 81, and soon succeeded In
checking the flames, which were rapidly
spreading. Tbe fire originated by some coal
drorplng out of tbe grate on the floor, setting
the carpet on fire. The damage done to the
building was slight.

Tbe Checkered Convention The Itou4
Ordinance Louisiana Defrauded of
$450,000-VVUo Voted For It, and Whs
JSTcw Orleans Cor, (Dec. 22) Cincinnati Gazette.-
I would that with me you conld to-day, after
picking your way though lime, mortar aud
1ubbl1.il upon the adjaceut sidewalk, enter tbe
doorway at Mechuuics' Institute, aud asoeud
ii g the wtudiug stairs, flud yourself in the pre
tence of the so culled Hucoiisiruclion Conven
tion of lfcii7. Yon have doubllesi seen that
lamlliar eugravlbg eutltled "The United dtales
btnute of IHM," in wblou lleury Clay, sur
rounded by bis oompeers. Is represented dls
cubbing tbe great polltital lxsue of that lime.
Kow.lt in this picture you will substitute lor
the great orator a burly black, and lor tbe in
tellecluHlcouuteuances aud thoughtful, earnest
eyts of tbe llstenlug teualors, bright rows of
ivories, saudwlcbed here and there between
rowdylsh looking whites, It may give you some
faint conception of the honorable body whloh
yesterday, by a vole of nlly-elght to thiity-two,
concluded to put a debt of half a million del
ists on Louisiana's back. In order that tbey.
the so-called representatives of "the loyal
fitopleof tbe State," might be assured of tbelr
en doliais a day and mileage.
A more stupendous fraud was never perpe
trated. The speculators who thus magnani
mously offer to advance sixty five cents on the
dollar and pocket tbe bonds, Interest, discount,
aud all, are well known.
A casual glance over tbe assemblage would
almost enable you lo designate who voted for
tbe ord'nanre, aud who did not. Yonder, to
the right of lbs central aisle, sits John Oalr, a
young mulatto, who, on one of the earlier days
of tbeaetslou.gotnp and denounced as "trai
tors" any wb voted on tbe opposite aide of a
certain question tnen before the House, ile
trlns eveiy lime bis name Is called, as
roadly a any school boy, who, having thrown
a spit-ball at tbe teacher's head, escapes detec
tion, lie voted for the Bond bill.
He Is a large, stontly-bullt man, with a heavy
black muataobe and eleanly-shaven face. His
eyes and balr are very dark, and I almost fear
from tbe course be pursued that his Intentions
are very nearly of the samo bne. He is the
violent man of tbe Convention the Boanerges,
as be bas been well termed who Is always
threatening this, denonnelog that, constituting
blmsell a permanent eommlttee of one, as a
sentinel npon the watch-tower of eolored
And yet it is bard to believe that he is the
same man who, Ave years ago. In a paper pub
lished at Clinton, La., The Npirit of the South,
advocated tbe Immediate hanging aud annihi
lation of eveiy one favoring the abolition of
these men whom he now alludes to as "ray
colored friends," my "constituents," or "the
honorable gentleman" from so and so, I leave
In your hands the verdlot concerning this per
son. It la simply a misfortune tbat ne controls
so many Ignorant votes In the Convention, lit
voted for the bonds; who didn't?
Then there Is a Simon Jones, a white delegate
from New Orleans, formerly Colonel of a Corps
d; Afrlqne regiment, and latterly very unplea
santly mixed up in long newspaper reports of
some stolen State bonds, which have never
been recovered. But such unpleasant little
associations as these don't appear to have In
jured Simon at all in tbe eyes or his friends, and
be bss been distinguishing himself greatly in
this flnancequeslion before tbeConvenMon by
playing negotiator with the mysterious capi
talists. He is "brassy" and full of assurance.
If there is a fence too high to be climbed over
he'll crawl under It, somehow, depend upon It.
This quality makes up In him for a lack of
Y'f s; and so did Bolomon Moses, black as the
ace of spades, late Corporal of the U. 8. A.,
and chosen a delegate for his vloleuce and
Ignorance displayed in Republican clubs and
caucuses. 'I say It without the slightest prelu
dice, that were De Cnalliu to meet him In a
stale of.nndlty in the African forest, he would
not hesitate to bring him down as a gorilla; but
Solomon quotes scripture fluently, though in
accurately, appears to feel not the least man
vaine hovte in occupying the floor, and rubs bis
face complacently when alluded as "me honor
able gentleman from New Orleans."
By his side sits Charles Smith, a rather vene
rable looking remnant of tbe convention of
18(14. Tbe vestiges of champagne and boned
turkey, consumed by tbat never-to-be-forgotten
body, are still visible in every wrinkle of
that good-natured face. He Is a crafty old fox,
well In with Governor Flanders, and especially
heavy on motions to "lay tbe whole subject on
the table." He sits in the first front seat to the
right of the central aisle. To him! fell tbe first
choice. Tbe colored members don't think him
particularly sonnd on the coose question. Well,
it may be; but, at all events, he Is voting with
them heart and soul for the present. He voted
for the bonds.
Unfavorable news as to the state of the
Pope's health is confirmed by letters front
Rome. It is said that daring the last few days
tbe sanitary condition of his Holiness has ex
cited considerable anxiety, the energy and
firmness which he displayed daring the recent
political events having been succeeded by a re
action which has occasioned great debility. A
report of the death of the Pope was circulated
in Paris a day or two sinse, and some of the
journals actually announce the decease of the
Holy Father, bat an official contradiction has
been given to the rumor.
Twelve hundred tons of steel rails hare
been substituted for iron ones on the Boston
and Providence Railroad. At Roxbary they
have been in use for upwards of a year at a
point where one hundred and twenty trains or
locomotives pass over them daily, bat there is,
as yet, no perceptible wearing away. Iron
rails had to be Telaid seventeen times a year at
the same plaoe. -

Tbe following letter from Secretary Mc
culloch puts au end to all doubts, as
to his course upon the question of contract
lug United btates notes. Tho reasons for non
cobtraction might have been made stronger.
The Secretary might have stated that for many
months there would be no surplus revenue
availnble for the payment of United States
notes, and tbat his income will bo hardly equal
to the redemption of the 7'30s, Compound
Notes, and past due debts presented for pay
ment. Until toe 7 30i are funded, and the Com
pounds got lid ol, no contraction can be made,
and probably none will be attempted this side ot
December, 18G8. After another crop is gathered
throughout the Union and the short debt is put
into long stocks, ai will be tho case in Decem
ber, 1HG8, abe attention of Congress can be
given to tbe contraction of the currency with a
prospect ol success wholly wanting now.
