"When resolution time was retched this morning tome
Interest w s manifested on both tides of the house to
know if Mr. Callahan, the democratic member from
Singe, would call up bis resolution of yesterday for a
recess of the Convention from October 1 to May 1. He
remain J aileat, however, and no further action has been
taken upon the subject. The democrats are impolite
enooy'i to cull Mr. Callahan a fool for making the propositi
in. He acted entirely without the sanction or
even knowiodgs of his colleagues. It was either a
guerilla act on his part, or else, as bis party subpee*
he was trapped Into ottering the resolution
bj seme strategy of the republicans Ills political
friends tried to induce him to withdraw it this morning,
but he refused. He does not Intend, though, to call it
up, but will leave it on the table, subject to whatever disposition
the emregency of the future or the necoslties of
the republicans may assign it. Much fsel ug exists on
both sides regarding the matter. The republicans are
growing more anxious every hour to bring it on the
tapis The democrats, thouvb equally willing that a
reewtia ho taken, told their arms and retuso to intiate
or partnrpaie in any such proposition. They say the
Convention was called by a republican majority, in
an election orders J by a' republican Legislature, and
that In lis composition it has a large republican preponderance.
All the responsibility of tho dolay and the
-waste of time and of money which will attend an
adjournment over to next year must Attach to
that party. A compromise Is" freely proposed by
tbe republicans to day. Thev offer to "divide the re...tn,
nf l)i. ullh lha t>.?
Lit er nut only refuse to make this agreement, but
declare they will vote solidly against the resolution.
Thia will not defeat the measure. I be republicans have
fully settled opon withholding the submission of the
new constitution for another year, and they are only
anxious to ba- k out of the present difficulty with as good
agraco as possible.
this canal and F1VANCB QUESTIONS
still drag their slow length along. By a grand coup last
nigtit the canal men succeeded In having a slight Incubus
of $18,000,000 removed from the debt for which
the canal revenues are pledged. There is a good deal of
fll hustoriug ou the remaining sections of the two articles
; but i think the o&na! men are secretly chuckling
over the victory which they have won, lor
it Is a great deal more advantageous than
they expected when they started out, and they are
mak ng a show to conceal their real feoimgs.
It certainly looked very gloomy lor "enlargement"
when the discussion commenced, as all the democrats
wore committed to support th? finance report, thereby
throwing their balance of power with the republicans
Who were opposed to the canal men. The compromise
which has been effected is all the more grutifyiug to tho
latter.

But the 1 legislature shall by such law provide for the payment
of any balance of lnteres or principal over and above
the proceeds of the cnol revenue pledged for the payment

Mr. Hatch ofi*r*d an amendment providing that the

Evening Session.
The Convention reassembled at seven o'clock. The
consideration of the finance and canal report* wan resumed.
Mr VMRPLAvrx advocated hta amendment offered th>*
morung.
Mr. (irttrxK oppoeed the amendment because It was a
departure from the financial policy of the constitution
f 184H He would go for enlarging the canal* whenever
it sboaM be demonstrated that It was necessary.
The Canal Committee had abandoned their schema.
Tney had admitted that II oould nut b? carried through
the Convention. The amount of taxation paid by me
people of this Slate in lerid had tieen stated at one hundred
and eighty million dollar*. He believed this to be
tow ratimaia, and In coming to this conclusion he did
not Inc.tide the sums paid lor charities, or cburchea. Ac.
Mr. CuuRcit waa surprised et the character of Mr.
Verplanck'* amendment. Whatever might be said of
thoee who call themselves the exclusive friends ot the
canals one thing waa certain, they would never be hang
for their mo<l<wty. Alt o a diacuaMon of ten days, in
winch It had beeu demonstrated tbat the scheme of the
Canal Committee must fall, a proposition had been
brought hsr* tbat would involve an expenditure of
I $40,000,000 without eren flxlng upon a day of payment.
The poa .or oxpeudlng $8,000,000, as reported by the
Cecal Committee, had been abandoned by Uiem, and
now a plan that i? much worse contemplated an
| expenditure of $40,000,000. It was monstrous and
abottld not bo entertained lor a moment. He warued
gentlemen nut to yield another och in the direction of
debt, If ttiey din they would bo rnucn worte off than
stnd-r the prooeat constitution.
Mr. VnaPLaara aoooptod Mr. McDonald'* amendment

The yellow fever Is on the increase here. Five more

DELL OX THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER.
A Traveller's Marvellous Story of Volcanic
Appearances in the Far Northwent.
St. Lotus, Mo., Sept. 13, 1867.
The Montana Post says that an exploring party, which
has beon to the headwaters of the Yellowstone river, bas
just returned, and reports seeing one of the greatest
wonders of the world. For oight days tbe party travelled
through a volcanic country, emitting bluo flame and a
living stream of molten brimstone. Tbe country was
smooth and rolling, long level plains intervening bolween
rolling mounds. On the summits of these rolling mounds
wore craters, from four to eight feot in diameter, and
everywhere on the level plains were smaller craters,
from four to six inches in diamctor, from which
streamed a blazo and a constant whistling sound. Tho
hollow ground resoundod beneath their feet as they
travelled, and every moment scorned to break through.
Not a living thing was seen In the vtciniiv. Tho explorers
gave it the significant appellation of ltell.
ATMOSPHERICAL HH?N0M:NA.
The heavens last evening were most bountcon* to the
drous machinery; do leas than two dt-tinci atmospherical
phenomena being presented to the astonished
viiton of enthusiastic star gazers. Between half past
seven and eight o'clock, soon after the sun had sunk to
rest beneath the western horizon, there was a magnillcent
exhibition of the Aurora Borealis or " Northern
Lights." This peculiar appearance of the sky, which
has been well termed the Aurora, in consequence of its
beauty, originates from some especial magnetic qualities
in the atmosphere, and it is rather early in the season,
as cold weather has not yet sot in, for it to he
observed ao far south. However, last night it
was on view, and many of our en irons who
cttiMKod to be in the streets or crossing the ferries were
treated to a most beautiful sight. The Aurora commenced
iu the west, but gradually worked round to the
north, being most brilliant when it was exactly in a
northwesterly direction as observed from the Hkraid
budding. Sharp dashes and streaks of pale rose colored
light darted across the sky, succeeded by a bright central
pillar of bluish fire, cross-barred with lighter tinted
streaks, which appeared ro rest Just over the northern
extremity of the Aster House. The light gradually faded
down to a transparent green, which theu filled up all tho
northern quarter of the heavens, and las ed for some
time. Occasionally the fiaaues 01 the Aurora would bo
perceived again, lighting up the horizon. But it ended
goon after it began, m regards the great display.
The Northern I.'ghts, however, woro aol the only wonders
to be seen last night, for we also bad au eclipse of the
toon, which the savans had declared?much they know
about it?would be invisible In New York. Instead of
being invisible, this phenomenon was vh idly apparent,
for just about twenty miuutes to eight o'clock the dark
shadow of the sun could tie saen resting across the upper
uaii ui lair iraun, iuo uiuui "gut. mo r mjiw rmi uni
tu perihelion close on eight o'clock, wueu s body of
black clouds swept across the sky and hid the moon and
all the wondrous cbangea that were boiog wrought on its
surface from those who were eagerly watching It.
One atmospherical phenomenon is thought a wonderful
alght In an evening; but when we havu no lesa than two
the erant certainly deserves to ba chronicled.
TRAGIC OCCURRENCE.
A Mnn Attempts to Kill Ilia mistress fllvoa
Her Time to stny Her Prayers?Who Kscapes?
lie Attempts to Commit Suicide.
Still another of those semi-tragic occurrences that
frequently occur in our city, in which fascinating women
and dementad men play the part of principals, reached
the ears of the police authorities about five o'clock on
Thursday afternoon. At that time a woman giving her
name as Mary Ann Bertram called at tha Twenty-ninth
precinct station and claimed protection. In an axclted
manner she stated that a man natnod William Kullmun,
to whom lbs had horns the relation of a mistress, had
callod upon her during the afternoon, at ber residence,
No. 104 W?*t Nineieeuth street, and solicited her company
to a houao of ill fame on fifteenth street, and that
she accompanied him there. Upon retiring to a private
room Kuilman locked the door and took two packages
trom his pocket, one of them containing laudsnutn and
the other a five-barrelled revolver, and. plating them
before her, said, "Thie dose la for me, ami the pistol for
you," at the nine time placing the pistol to her head,
and telling ber that ho would give her Just three
minutee to my bar prayers before blowing out her
otains. The horror stricken woman, with death staring
her in the face, dropped upou her knees and pleaded
plteoualy for lift; bat Rullmsn. who seemed in great
excitement, was Inexorable, evidently Intending to carry
out bit threat. Her screams, rnll of terror, startled the
inmates of lbs house, who at this Juncture rushed up
stairs, broko open the door and rnter-d the room, lu
the confusion which followed the womsn ran out and
aerreled herself In another apartment, hoping thxa to
elude the would-be murdurer. Kuilman, under the Impression
that she had esc..ped to the street, immediately
followed In pursuit, bat did not succeed
in finding her. Supposing that shs had returned
to ber residence, ho at once repaired there,
and, reaching her room, informed partite in the
bouee be would await ber return. Upon Miss Bertram s
arrival home, shortly thereafter, being informed of hie
r>r? eeuca, the lied to the statu* house tad made the
abovs statement to Bergeaai Roak, who immediately
despatched officer McCarthy to arraat Rullmae.
On entering the house they vara startled by the dolt
report of a pistol, and hastily seconding to Mlaa Bertram
a ruoin. In the second story, found the door
lo ked. llie officer demanded ndmtwUoo. and Roliman
<ame to tbe door and opened it, whan be laid down
