A strung delegation of Irishmen, leaders of the
TJew York Fenians and olllcers of the Hrother
hood, met at a late hour last, night and resolved
to nit sent to the New York delegation this
morning at 10 o'clock an ultimatum which they
flatter themselves will have t heeded of securing
the noifiluation for (ienertl lilatr. They propose
to lell the New York ring that lJUir, having
tlveu sausfaclory proof ol his willingness to
ring the Afabama claims and the iiaUuall.iiou
ouesliou Ui a satisfactory settlement if elected
to the Presidency, they must either vole for
him In the Convention to day or be prepared to
meet arrayed against the Democracy at the
jolls whole battalions of voting Fenians. They
will declare their determination to prevent the
election to State and municipal odloes of every
New York politician, at least, wh cannot

Tactics of Naw York.
The peculiar tactics of tbe New Y'ort delega
tion ore most puzzllBg to their coor-.try con
frercs. Believfid to be In favor of Chase, they
cwnnot understand why it is tlroy have not
brought forward his name, but tiavc, instead,
nomiLBted an indlvldaal, ain-ost a compara
tively unknown man, and bave persistently
and as a unit oast their Sta'.e vole for him on
every ballot, notwt Instancing be failed to
gain a tingle vote, and tha idea of his
nomination appeared absurd. They can
not understand this, and say, if they
really mean Chase aud only use Church
as a blind why do they not nominate the man
they wish to-elect and not take up the time of
the Convention with bagatehe balloting? Tney
are not likely, however, to have their doubts
renolved very early this morning, as the New
Yorkers held a caucus last evening and decided
to stick to Church for a while yet. This will
give an opportunity for Pendleton to develope
his utmost strength, and If it flls short of suc
cess to decline, when Ohio may be prepared, by
perceiving his cuances gradually falling oir, to
accept or present another native of that State
than him Judge Chase -In which event Penn
sylvania would likewise change, when tlie en
tire r-outbi rn States, falling Into lino, would in
sure bis nomination.
Tha Peaasylvaisla. Delagatloa.
From the N. Y. Tribune of this morning.
A ferret mortlni; of tins delegation was hold
last night at Irving U:ill. Several of the more
prominent members indulged in oratorical
ellorts in support of strategic measures to be
acted upon lit tho Convention to-day, but rho
dornonlade was soon dropped, and the delega
lion proceeded to business of a more serious
character. The claims of Judge Packer, for
whom the delegates voted in a body yesterday
were urged with vehemence, and his chances
for tbe nomination calmly discussed. Tne re
sult of the pow-wow was a uosnimous vote in
favor of Judue Packer; and unless a sudden
change should take place before 9 o'clock this
morning, at which time the delegation will
hold another meeting, the representatives of
the Pennsylvania Democracy will give their
lavonie a bona voie.
Ohio ssd Padletow.
Tbe delegates from Ohio claim a large Increase
over the last ballot since theadjourniuent of the
Convention, but they do not indicate what dele
gations have given in their adhesion since four
o'clock esteruay afternoon. They feel confi
dent that to-day's balloting will siid their
candidate's vote up to 170 or 1X0, and Ui.u he will
be nominated before the day clones. The. rooms
of Oeuerttl McCook were thronged by leading
politicians during t,h. entire evening, and the
signs (if heavy log-r illing and other political
exercise were quite apparent. The loud
mouthed followers of the delegation have
mainly departed, aud the earnest workers alone
remain. The eil'ect was manifest in the lobbies
of the Fifth Avenue Hotel, in the comparative
quiet that prevailud, and the less frequent calls
for the police to nisperse knots of angry dispu
tants who blocked the passages.
A private letter from the headquarters of the
Soldiers and Suitors to a member of tue Demo
cratic Club of Charleston, H. C, and purporting
to come from the private Secretary of General
Hancock, reads as follows:
Mnjor (J"nprl Hanoock received your letter on the
sin itiKiaiH, wane on n visit 10 tins city, and was aitieli
plesopd to hear fiom an ollicer of bin old corps. The
public and private expressions of conlidvuce Melius
received trout the cU'ztjb and gololurs or the con 11 try
are very warm'y apprecla ed by lilm. Atlhosamo
uiiinnenocR uot aetjK t vanceiueui in tne civil ser
vice or the nation, tor win he permit his name to be
used rb antugomsat with any portion of the Demo
cratic party. If the delegates assenibleu in conven
tion on tbe Fourth of Juiy next should deem It ne
ceNssry for the success of the Democratic party that
he should curry thttlr standard, and upou a proper
platform, his duty would hup) him to accept It, I
am, with (treat respect, Tory truly yours.
The adoption of tbe platrorm by tho Demo
cratic Convention Is the subject of much tuts:
among tiie financial meu down town, who sub
scribe to the doctrines of thq party, rb a general
thing; the proposed action of the Democracy In
regard to the payment of the nattoual debt and
the regulation of tho currency, meets with the
approbation oi the money dealers.
A large number of the leaders of the Fenian
organization are actively using their influence
with I he members of the Tammany Conven
tion in favor of the nomination of Ueueral
Frank lllalr, who is regarded by thoin as a tried
und true friend of the cause of Irish autonomy.

Tha Press am tha Platform,
From th If. Y. Trib'tne.
This platform osi ontatlously beats tho air.
It denounces military rule, when the dep la
ment coiuinauders are quietly turning over
their authority to tuu Governors aud Legisla
tures chosen by the people, and unnounulnihelr
power at an end. i calls for tho wltndruwal
of the Freedmen's Bureau, when Congress has
F.tovldeil, or is providing, for th.i closing of tuat
lureau in each State so soon as its ruaohluery
of loyal sell-government, shall huve Oohu put
fairly in motion. Tue Pint lorm seems anxious
to atone, by the vehemence wlierowlth It de
nounces whatever has passed, or Is passing
away, for its coward'y equivocations and sub
terfuges with lcv.ai'd to tangible und living
From the N. Y. World.
We cordially indorse the financial part of the
platform and will staud by every word of it.
Tho platform pioposes to pay the live-twenties
In greenbacks; proposes to raise the money
for this purpose by taxaUon, promises
unequivocally that "the burden of taxation
shall be tetsened;" the credit of the
Government made good; the currency
made good; aud that Unit good currency shall
ne the same for all classes, iuoludlng the
bondholders. We do not regard these several
declarations as contradictory, but as mutually
explanatory, perfectly consistent and harmo
nious. The Detnocrallo nariy Is pledged by the
platform to appreciate the greenbacks to par,
and to use them for the payment of that part of
the public debt which is not by express provi
sion of tue law due in coin. That part of the
platurw which relates to the elective fraccuise
and negro supremacy 1 also sound tc. doctrine
and practically Judlolous.
From () Y. Timet.
The platform adopted by the Democrat 1 3 Con
vention is a strange mixture of Taot and fustian,
of courage and duplicity, of propositions that
are lucid, and propositions that are muddy. It
Is bold to tbe verge of rastiness in regard to
finances, equivocal in its allusions to recon
struction, contused in its exposition of fisoal
and administrative reforms, diffuse and turgid
in its arrslgnmenlof theraiing party. It is the
work, apparently, of different hands oae hav
ing the nerve inspired by clear and strong con
viction, another accustomed to manipulate the
commonplaces of partisan confession of faith,
and a third crippled and weak under a burden
of words In which we search vainly for precision
or fairness,

W. V. Holden, Halelgh, N. C:-Slr Yesterday

lrom General Cauby, he would to day, at 10 A.

of the duties of civil Governor of the Stale, and
that thereupon you would demand possession
of my office. 1 intimated to the Judge my
opinion that suoh proceeding was premture,
even under the recoustruotlon legislation of
Congress, and ihnt I should probably docllue to
surrender the oitloe to you.
At sundown yesterday evening I received
from Colonel Williams, .commandant of this

I do not recognize the validity of the late elec

with you claim to be invested with the civil
government of tbe State. You have no evi

major-general of the United States army. I
retard all of you as, in etleut, appointees of the
military power of the United Stales, and not as
"derlvlug your powers from the consent of
those you claim to govern." Knowing, how
ever, that you are backed by military lorce
here, which I could not resist if I would, I do
not deem it necessary to offer a futile opposi

mony of actual eviction, offering no fur.

test. I would submit to actual expulsion in
order to bring before the Supreme Court of Hue
United Slates the question as to the constitu

claim to be the rightful Governor of the State
If the past action of that tribunal furalshe.l any
hope of a rpeedy trial. I surrender the otllce to
you under what I deem military duress, with
out stopping, as tbe occasion would well justify,
to comment upon the singular coincidence that
the present State Government is surrendered.

There are half a million acres of land in
Jamaica which cannot be claimed by anybody.
The Government is about to take possehslon of
them, and will thus prepare the way for the de

upon which no taxes have paid at all for some
years. These the Government can any day
pounce upon as forfeited by non-payment of
land tax. The Governor is only waiting
upon the Imperial Government to proceed

Tammany Hall, July 8. The Convention was
called to order at 1030 A. M President Sey
mour In the chair. The ball was filled in every
part, and many ladles were present.
No More Praylag to ha Done.
No prayer was delivered, and the reading of
the minutes of yesterday was dispensed with.
A delegate from Missouri called for the read
ing of the names of the
National Executive Committee,
which was ordered. The names were given as
published in tbe morning papers for all the
States, except New York and California.
Mr. Price, of Missouri, here assumed the chair.
Mr. Bayard, of Delaware, said there was some
mistake about the name recorded for that State
and asked that It be omitted. He was sure that
the Dame as published had not been agreed to
by a mpjorlty of the delegation.
California named John Blgler, and New York,
August Belmont.
Hendricks Placed ou tha Track.
Mr. Fitch, Indiana, rose to present ouo of Its
most talented citizens as a candidate before
this Convention for Presidential nomination,
one of the best and purest men ot the natio i.
Indiana bad thought it right to oust her vote
for a reasonable length of lime for Pendleton,
In the opinion of tue majority of the delega
tion that reasonable time had passed, though
tbe minority were still of opinion that they
ought to adhere furlhor to tbe gentleman from
Ohio. The majority had no disposition, even if
it bad the power to force their views upon the
minority. In conclusion, he briefly eulogized
and named Thomas A. Hendricks.
Mr. Price (Ind ), for ihe minority, urged adhe
rence to Pendleton, and expressed the highest
respect for Hendricks; but, the minority could
not e,o for him because the State Convention of
their State declared decisively their preference
for Pendleton against t be most earnest aud per
sistent opposition. In accordance with that
preference the delegation resolved to staud by
Pendleton so long as there was a reasonable
hope for his nouiluutlou. (Great cheers and
some hisses.)
Tha Saveuth Ballot,
The roll was then called, and each vote for
Pendleton the galleries applauded vociferously.

A Humor or tho Uxcltlua; Sort.
A rumor has spread in the Hall that New
York will break on the next ballot, oasttug
part, if not all, her vote for Hendricks. This is
denied by some who say that while New York
will leave Church today, unless he attracts
support from other Slates, they are not ready to
drop him. The excitement and anxiety is in
tense. Naw York Shows her Haud.
Mr. Tllden, of New York, asked leave for the
New York delegation to retire for consultation,

porators of tbe Honduras Iuteroceanlo Bull
way had sent out a remittance of fifteen thou,
sand ponnds sterling to start the work on the

ting limbers for sleepers and laying rails. M.
Galinler is soon expected from France, and
considerable curiosity is aroused to know the
amount of capital that has been subscribed In
France. M. Chabert, from Marseilles, Is ex
pected with a party of immigrants and labor
ers for a colony to improve the districts bor
dered by the Ulo Ulua. Accordlug to the cou
tract of M. Chabert and tha degree pro
mulgated in his favor tbe cultivation of indigo
