Tammatay, obdeotedto the selection of oendidates for 'Jongress on much the same grounds tbh.se expressed by Dr. Aby. who agdn spoe, 'urgingt that nothing should be done by t e convention that might destroy the harmo'ra of the party. and he closed saying thsa he hoped theptoposition would be defeated. Mr. Wash Marks was of a similar opinion. He thought the proposition, if adopted, would legalie an aset that this convention had no right to do. His (,he Second District delega tion) had unanimously come to the conclusion that they had no right to go into congressional nominations. Mr. Fitz -atrick. of Orleaps. said that no sur prise could have attended the action of his district (the Fir t), for one of the candidates for the Federal House in that district had been earnest in his solioitation for a nomination whilst the gentleman who had obtained it h ,d not been so solicitous. He would sty that the First disriot had nominated i. L. OGbson, The oppos tion had a right to object to nomi nations but not to interfere with them after they had been made. Gen. Gibson had already carried the distriot three times before He was of the opinion that the delegation had acted strictly in accordance with the resolution of the State OCntral (lommittee. Mr. Fontonot-Has the First Oongressional District a congressional committee? Mr. Flitpatr'nk-No. Mr. Moss s-Was there ever a basis of appor tiotm,.nt mad, ? Mr. Fi'zpatrick-No. Every gentleman from New Orleans. he added, had agr ed to go into the eleotion of p residential electors, and yet nothing was said ab ut presilential ele-. ters in the State Central Commkitee's resolu tlons. Pending the discussion, the frllowing was offered as an amendment to the orlginal reso lution: "Provided, that this resolution shell not be cons'rued so as tot ifPct any proceedings already had by any eongresslonal district on matters herein nawed: all snuch proceedings had belug herebt ratifie." Ater some wrangling, Mr. Cllnton of Tensas, moved to strike out in the above resolution. "all nunh proceedings had being hereby rail. fi d." because he said he did not think the con vention had anythina to do with the action of the congressional istricts. Mir Oauthreaux, of Orl aen, said that the so tion of the Second Di-trict oaurus had been unanimous in oopposition to congressional nomlna ions, and on that account was opposed to the ratdioation of the action of districts by this no"vention. "Bt." seld Mr. Robertson of BE.t Baton Rouge. "Mr. Ollnton's amendment does away with the ratifyinag portion of the proviso " A short debate en ued between Mr. OIau'h reaux and Mr. Rob..ertson on the construction of the amenduent. Mr. iobertson maintained that to adopt the resolution without the amendment was to pro voke discord in the oarty. Mr. Lewis, of Orleans. said that the mntter had not been properly put befor.' the conven tton. The will of the people tad been referred to on this floor, end thatl was exantly what the minori'y of the First Dlst let claimed should be observed. A technical opposition had been made to the rendltg of the action of the Parlh Committee of New Orleans in the matter. He would now proceed t reed it (and he road the DmonoanAT's report published above ) He held that the Parish Committee had limited the work to the selection of delegates to the Cincinnati convention. He, like Mr. Fpi'patrick. was a close friend of Gen. Gibson. atd nt had always voted for len Gibson since he had come to live in the district: but this had nothing to do with the question before the convwntion. The qrns tion ass whether the convention should allow discord to occur in the ranks of the party. He wanted the nominations to be made by dele gatea who were authorized to not. Mr. Fltzvatrlck-How did your delegation. the sventn ward. vote In the district meeting? Mr. Lewis-Six for Gibson and three blank. but he thought that did not change the oques tion. Mr. Walton, of Concordia, now offered the following as a substitute for the resolution and amendment: lResolred That it is the sense of this conven tion that it is the duty, and that it is in the power alone of each congressional district, to call together and control its own conventions and make nominations., over which this conven tion bas no tontrol or authority. Mr. Walton spoke in favor of his substitute. Col. Collins. of the ninth ward. In answer to Mr. Walton's remarks, said that when there were contents in wards, a regular election, with ballot-boxes, commislsioners, etc. were resort ed to. In this case, however (except in two wards). everybody being a Hancock man, the delegJtes to this convention we ea chosen simply at a general meeting of the ward wigwams. Had there been any o .ntest or Intention to se leot nominees for election to Congress. a formal election would have taken place. In proof that it was not intended to go into an election of delegates to nominate Congressmen, he read a fifth ward ticket. which was headed "To select deiegates to the national convention." Mr. Barrett. of the fifteenth ward of Algiers. said that he and his colleagues were elec'ed to select delegates to go to Cinclnnatl, and not to nominate congression, I candidates. The chair man of the fi at district delegation, he added had himself this morning said that there had b on no election for Congressman. He then offered the following doeuments: New OBLEANS, April 12. To the President and Delegates to the State Democratic Convention: Gentlemen-The undersigned delegates, rep resenting the fifteenth ward in theFirst Con areselonal District convention, respeotfully beg leave to enter their protest against making nominations for Congrees, on the ground that they were onlyelected for the purpose of select ing delegates to thColncinnsti onnven.ion.

Mr. Adams. of Orleans, said that his side had only done more than the other side had done. His side had come to the conclusion that they could nominate Congressmen, whilst the other side had concluded that they could not. Mr. Bower of Orleans. asked Mr. Adams whether he (ar. Adams) was not the author of the Parish Committee resolution. The answer of Mr. Adams not being satisfao. tory to Mr. Bower. the latter charged him with evading the question. Mr. Adams concluded by saying that if the State Central Committee decided against his side, then they would hold another election. otherwise they would not. After further debate a motion to table the suostitute was lost on a oali by parishes, by a vote of 116 yeas to 32~ rays. The substitute was then adopted. Mr. Robertson. of St. Landry. offered the fol lowing: Resolved. Thatthe basis of representation in the several congressional convention. stall be one for each 200 votes cast therein for Gov. W tliz. and one for each fraction over one hundred. The resolution was ruled out of order on the point made by Mr Gauthreaux that under the resolution of Mr. Walton. just adopted, the con vention has no right to fix a basis of erepresen tation. Mr. Walton now offdred the following resolu tion: Resolved. That the Democracy of the State of Louisiana, within constitutional limits, Im poslng wise safeguards upon the treasury. cordially and heartily indorse the report of the Mistselepot Biver C mmleeission for the improve ment of our great inland pea, to the end that ease and safety shall be sesured to its naviga tion, proper lacilities to its trade and com meree, and the postal service, and protection against its destructive tn )ods; and take this oc casion to thank our Representatives in 'Con gress for the energy and wisdom displayed by them unon this great national question. Which was unanimously adopted. On motion of Mr. Trezsvant. of Franklin (af ter a motion to adjourn until 7 V. m.). the con vention proceeded to go into an election for electors and alternate delegates to the Cincin nati Convention. After a lapse of about flfteen minutes Mr. Tresevant announced the following selections from the Fifth Olngressional District: J. O Ean, of c(latborne. A. O. Gibson. of Mad hon. aitrnate delegate.'

The election of Judge Jack in the f urth dis trict was the result of the withdrawal of Mr. Cunningham, elected on the previous day, who said he did so because there wa some qpi stion as to the eligibllity of a State officer as elector. he being a State Senator; and that the party could not take any risks in the matter. D r. B ,wer, of Orleans, to a qucstion of infor mation. asked whether beinga State officer dis qullled a person from being an elector; such was his personal opinion. Mr. Adam, of Orleans, then 'ook the floor and said, that in order nut to ta~oe any risks, the First Congressional District withdrew Mr Brewster's name. and submitted that of Mr. Oharl' a Butler, of the sixth ward of Orleans. Sixth District-Judge Lyons nominated K. A. Cross, of East Feticlana. All the nominees were elected by aocelama tion.

Cheev. re. who had been ejoilned by II. L. Duffel. late judge of the Fourth Judicial District Court from taking his seat as judge of the Twenty. second Judicial Dbtrict (under the new consti tution). Initiated proceedings in the shape of a rule under the act of 1873. addressed to Judae Duffel, to show cause whysald Cheevers should not be declared and decreed entitled to the office of judge of the Twenty-second District Court. and why he should not be inducted therein and Immediately hold and exerclhe the said office. The rule was made returnable on the twenty seventh Instant. It is taken under the provision of the act of 1973. so well known sln-e the contest between Justices Kennard and Morgan. of the Supreme Court, in which case the act w,,s tested and fullysustained as constitutional by the United States Supreme Court. This act of 1873 pro vides in substonee that whenever a person. duly elected and promulgated as such, has re oeivedhis commisslon and been qualified, the former Incumbent must allow him to take his office, pending any litigation In reference to the rtght of th. commissioned party. It further provides that if the former Incum bent refuses to give up the office the party elected and commlssioned can take a rule be fore any comoetent court of the adjoining dis. trict,or the Superior District Court of the par ish of Orleans, for him to show ceuso why the party onmmissioned should not Immediately be tnst-lledl and Inducted into offic-. The Suverlor District Court htvlt g been abol Ishedi since that law. counsel for Judge Cheevers took the rule before Hon. Michael Harn. the Ijudge of the adiotuing Twenty-second Judicial District. The ule is made returnable for the twenty seventh of April. because having been filed ,n the thirteenth it mset, under the law of 1875. not bih answerab e before the twenty-first of April. but the time was extend-ed to the twenty. seventh.

A portion of the delegates of the First Con. gresslonal D'strlct to the late Democratic Con vention, having decided upon gooing into the election of a candidate for representative to the lower House of Congress. and nt minated Gen. Gibson for the position, and the Third Congres sional Distric delegates having nomnloated the Hon. John 8. Bilitu as the candidate for that district, there will naturally be some curiosity to know what the remaining districts are going to do. As far as could be asnertained last night it appears that, the H, oond District delegates will not make a nomtnitl n. Out have organized a congressional co,..mittee and will make ar rangements to have a representa ion elected from each parish, and each ward of the city of New Orleans. belonging to the district, to as semble at some future day in Carrollton to select a candidate.

NOT ON THE BILLS. A New Feature in the Play on the Academy Boards. Last night at the Academy of Music, while the second act of the play was in progress, a new as well as a horrifying feature was Introduced. which was as surprising to the onst and man sagrs as to the audience. Miss Evelyn, as the Wild Rloss of iucatan, had just marde her ap pearance in the seoon't act when a man, with a terrible thud, fell at her feIt from the "flles" above, justln front of the foot-lights. At first all was excitment. as it was sup posed that the scene-Shilter had. while attenil leg to his duties. accidentally missed his foot ing and hba fallen ot the stage. Hardly had the man fallen than the curtain was lowered. but it was instantly raised and the play went on, By this time the man who had met with the accl tent was carried out of the theatre, placed in a cab and sent to the station-house and thence to his residencs. His name was It. J. Brown. stage managet,r of the Grand Opera House. It avprars that he was somewhat mentally deranLged, and Ibhoring under non impression that one James Foley was followiig him with mnrnerous intent, entered the th ttre by a private entrance, ind going on the etage cllmbed up into the flIts, from whence he fell, as above stated. Althoubh his head struck and masbhedl a couple of vases on the str go he was only slightly Injured. He is su tposid. how ever, by many who saw him fall to have received internal bruisos. COMPLAINING OF RAILROAD MEN. A Communication to Chief Boylan About the Superintendent of the Jackson Street Road. Capt. Mannlng yesterday forwarded the fol lowing communlcation to Chief Boylan: Sir-I would call your attention to the fact that numerous complaints have been made of diturbances by roughs in street cars.

Grant is the strongest one man for the Re publican nomination, but two men may have more strength between them than he has. Blaine and tiherman together may be able to beat Grant on the first ballot, and then fight it out between themselves. Unless Grant has half the convention he has not and ought not to be nominated. Unless he can be nomin ated on the ilst ballot, he cannot be nomin ated at all. From Eminent Wllmer Brinton, N. D. Baltimore, Md.
