Things erystalize slowly. Payne seems te be losing ground while Bayard is certainly ahead of all competitors. Payne's less will benefit Randall as the second choice of the Tilden men. If at any stage of the proceedings Indiana should indicate a willingness te permit the use of McDon ald's name he would be likely te be the nominee. Among the improbable if net impossible are Field, Hancock, Payne, Thurman, Jewett, Tilden and Seymour, while Hendricks may also be counted out of the race. Xew Yerk, New Jersey and Connecticut arc in geed condition te unite, and when this event transpires the Seuth will be likely te go with them as the brig adiers particularly desire a man who can win. W. U. II. THE CONVENTION RE-ASSEMBLED. Situation Net Vet Shaped Tammany Uadly Beaten The Massachusetts Quarrel Adjusted The Disputed Penn sylvania Seats Cheering Randall. Editorial Despatch te the Isteixieescer. Cincinnati, June 23. As I write the convention is assembling, the bands arc playing, the galleries cheering, and the Lancaster party surveying the situation from advantageous position. A large Iiandall banner has just been carried into the hall and greeted by tremendous en thusiasm. Last evcuiug the committee en perma nent organization agreed without difficulty en ex-Senater Stevenson, of Kentucky, as permanent chairman of the convention, while the Tammany geese was very effec tually cooked in the credentials committee, the vote against Lhe Kelly people being the very decisive one of 32 te 5. The Massa chusetts quarrel between the Butler and Faneuil hall wings of the party there has been settled by mutual agreement : both delegations will go into the convention, each being accorded half a vote. The committee also resolve in favor of Brawlcy and McQuisteu in the matter of the dis puted seats in Pennsylvania. The prospects new all point te a speedy transaction of business te-day. The women's suffrage people are en hand and have sent in a petition asking first the natural right of individuals, and secondly, equality of these rights. The Enquirer te-day comes out bitterly against the proposed Bayard-McDonald combination, which has been among the probabilities. The convention has just lieen called te order (10:30 a. m.) W. U. II. THE FUN BEGINS. Special Bulletins te the Intelligencer. Cincinnati, June 23, 12:26. The fun has begun. The Kansas member of the credentials committee reports in favor of Tammany, but the galleries are against him. The previous question has been called. Pennsylvania votes 38 te 12 against debate en the preposition te give Tammany 20 votes. Hensel votes against discussion and McGraun for it. Under the rules aud by consent Tam many has been given forty minutes and the regulars twenty. New Yerk declined te vote en the pre vious question and her magnanimity was loudly cheered. Discussion cut off by Ce majority. Headly invited Tammany te let Kelly or any ether person speak for them. Miller, of Albany is new speaking. Anisa Parker, of New Yerk, Gov. Hub bard, of Texas, and Judge Westbroek followed for Tammany ; Fellows of New Yerk and Rufus "W. Peckhamfer the regu lars. Pennsylvania votes 40 te 15 te sus tain the majority report of the credentials committee, which rejects the claims of the Tammany contestants. Pennsylvania voted 47 te 10 in favor of the majority report. Total vote : Regu lars, 457 ; Tammany, 205. Tammany has been given seats without votes. The permanent organization has been effected.

This Morning's Werk in Convention. 15y Associated Press. Cincinnati, June 23 10 o'clock. Net twenty delegates are in their seats, the galleries are two-thirds filled, the weather is warm aud sultry. It is understood that the committee en credentials will report immediately after the permanent organiza tion is effected. The platform committee is still at work en the resolutions. The usual demonstrations of applause were made as prominent gentleman came in and when the banners of the Randall and ether political clubs passed up the aisle. The fact is unmistakable, however, that there is here much less of this sort of out side pressure for individual candidates than at Chicago. The following fills the blank in the permanent organi zation as sent last night: Vice Presidents : Frederick Cook, New Yerk ; J. C. Hagerman, Nevada, secretaries ; Frank Rice, N. Y. ; F. F. High, Nevada -Edward Bigler, Pa. ; substitutes. E. E. Jacksen for Themas, as Maryland's secre tary. A circular of the national woman's suf frage association was distributed through the hall signed by Mrs. Gaga as chaiman, Susan B. Antheny, Mrs. Spencer and a vice president from each state. It demands the recognition .of women's rights, and the insertion in the platform of a plank pledg ing the Democratic party te use all its powers te secure te the women of the na; tien protection in the exercise of the right of suffrage. The women's suffrage representatives were honored with applause from the au dience as they took seats. After a brilliant voluntary en the organ; the military band played various national and operatic airs. " Yankee Doedle'' alone seemed te arouse the audience. The convention was called te order at 10:40, when all the delegates appeared te be present. Prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. Charles Tayler, of Covington, Ken tucky. The reading of the minutes of yesterday was dispensed with. Mr. Steutenberg (Ind.) moved a resolu tion that the surviving soldiers of the Mexican war and their widows and or phans should be put by Congress en the same footing as the soldiers of 1812. Re ferred te the platform committee. The chair announced first business in order was the report of the committee en credentials and asked if it was ready te report. There was an interval of several minutes before there was any response. The Bonfire Beady. Meantime the chair ordered read a tele gram from Reynales Basin, New Yerk, as follews: "Bonfire ready te be lighted with three cheers for the Democratic nom inee. ' ' Laughter and applause. The Permanent Omanizatien. At 10:54 Judge Headly announced that the chairman of credentials committee was net in the house and called en the commit tee en permanent organization. Mr. Martin (Del.), chairman of said com mittee, by unanimous direction, reported in favor of ex-Gov. Stevenson, of Ken tucky, for president, with a vice president and secretary from each state, together with the recommendation concerning the admission of territorial delegates sent last night" and published in our news col umn . Stevenson's name was received with ap plause. Credentials Committee's Repert. When the report had been read Mr. S. Yeung, of Georgia, as a question of privil ege, demanded te be permitted te pro pre sent the report of the committee en cre dentials. The chair said the report en permanent organization was before the house, and asked the convention's will. Mr. Martin moved that his report be adopted, and en that asked the previous question, which he subsequently with drew. Mr. Jeffries, (La.), moved te postpone further proceedings en the report en per manent organization until the convention had received and acted en the credentials committee's report. Adopted. Mr. Yeung, of Ga., as chairman, pre sented the report of the committee en cre dentials. They reported that there were two delegations from Massachusetts; they admitted both delegations by agreement between the two, the united delegation te cast the vote of the state. They also re ported in favor of the sitting delegates from the 2Gth district of Pennsylvania, (Messrs Brawley and McOrmisten). In the case of New Yerk the committee had carefully weighed the whole evidence, and with a singular unanimity had voted te al low the sitting members te retain their seats. Great applause. There were no ether contests anywhere and the commit tee reported the full list of delegates enti tled te seats. Mr. Carrell, Kansas, presented a minor ity report. It was proposed te have the reading clerk read it, but the chair said the gentleman from Kansas should have his own way about it. (Mr. Carrell proceeded te read his report, interrupted with boisterous cries of " louder," " let the clerk read it, etc.") Judge Headly called for order, and said the gentleman from Kansas could be heard by the entire house if order were preserved, and it was his right te be heard and he should be heard. Ap plause. Mr. Carrell proceeded te argue that the position of the Tammany men at this time is precisely analageus te the condition of the New Yerk contestants in 185G, when the contestants were ad mitted te half the seats of New Yerk in the convention, which action united the party and led te victory. In conclusion the report presented a resolution, dividing the vote by 50 te 20 the latter te the Shakespeare hall or Tammany delegation. The minority report was signed by Messrs. Carrell, of Kansas; Fellows, of New Jersey ; Barclla, of Colerado, and Da Da videon, of Arkansas. Mr. Yeung demanded the previous ques. tien, stating that the committee had spent all night en this work, and he believed had done it well. The previous question was seconded, ordered, and the roll was called. When Alabama was called it was net ready, and an interval was allowed for consultation. Mr. Yeung inquired whether, under the rules of the Heuse of Representatives, there would net be an hour for debate after the previous question was ordered. The chair replied that the convention had adopted the rules of the last cenven tien, when only five minutes debate were allowed after an order of the previous question. The roll call was proceeded with and the vote resulted in 3C0 te 295, se the main question was .Ordered te be new put. Mr. Yeung said under rules of the house there was one hour for debate of which he proposed two-thirds be given te the contestants and their friends. Applause. Loud cries of "Platform," "The plat form," caused Mr. Yeung te go te the stage and he proposed te give forty minutes te any man who would be sug gested by Mr. Kelly, of N. Y., reserving his own twenty minutes te reply. Ap plause and hisses.

He and his friends could net control this result, try as they might, unless this convention should give them the twenty scats recommended by the minority report. Give them these aud they could draw out and make effec tive the magnificent victory next autumn. Amasa J. Parker, announced by the chairman as " a sterling old Democrat," followed for the contestants.
