The proceedings of tbe Union State Contention hare already been laid before our readers in epeoial dispatches from Co lumbus. The ticket nominated is one of tbe Tery best that oa d be put in the field. - ' They are all gentlemen fncly adapted te the offices for whiobjihey hTe been nom inated. The spirit of the Convention wa very ezeelleat, there being the utmost fcarmo y of feeling, Tery much in contract with the recent stormy senion of the copper heads. The resolutions adopted were brief and expressive. That endorsing' Abra ham Lincoln and favoring his re-nomination was received with thunders of ap plause, showing how deep-seated the popu tar enthusiasm for him prevails. The action of the Union party pf Ohio ' pledging their material and moral sup- poj-Un behalf of the restoration of the Union, m hu throughout the whole country.

Thin - etapid driveling is 1U own nnti dote. Every one of the least intelligence kaows that the men who have gone from Ohio, and should have gone from Illinois, lave beea of immense service to ike conn- try.

The Ohio Btatesmaa exhibited an nan snal amount of faeetioosness yesterday in commenting apoa the aomiaatioas made by the Convention. The knowledge of the Btatesmaa ere a outruns its wit. Ene- eially do gentlemen who onoe acted with the Demooratio party, . ad who, when the rebellion began, had the manliness to ent themselves adrift from party connections, receive the ge tie flagellations of the Statesman. The Honorable Luther Day' was a Union man two y are before he was nominated for Supreme Judge. His Demoeraoy was not long-lived after the attack oa Sumter He, together with Alphonio Hart. Eso. . of navenna, who were the only leadipgDemo- erata of talent in Portage county, came out from amongst them and have ni more affiliation with goch Copperheads as the Statesman, than light has with darkness. The Copperheads need to indulge in i great deal of grim humor, to keep op their spirits, woen they remember how the tru- Iy noble and able Democrats have la ken their position in the Union party. II hurts you badly, don't it, Mr. States man T . War Brewing In Europe lishmanoTtnVT?lJtS24PIe oenlly twice traversed Europe from Lon don to Stamtoul, in a private letter to the editor of tbe Tribune, thus epitomises the situation : I have made a most attentive investiga tion ef tbe state of publio feeling in Tur key, Greece, Italy, France, and Swilnr lnd, and will give vou a brief resume on which you may depend : the Turks, Arabs, and all tbe Moham medan tribes, bate the Eaperor of tbe French; and no donbt serious war mav be expected in Algeria and alonj; tbe whole of Northern Africa. The Greeks hate rhe Emperor of tbe French ; let, beoaase he supports the Pope, wbom toe u reeks tbink tbe ereatoet enemy o' their religion. 2d, became the Empe ror has buliied them, and ther have taken entirely to the Brituh Alliance. The Italians hate the Emperor of the French, with euoh hatred as only Italians perhaps can feel : 1st, Because, they Bay, hec&vemonev to Italian soldiers to shoot Garibaldi ; that brigands, dresBed as soldiers, paid with r renon got a. am ins act or assassination (I am myself fully persuadod that they are right in that ) 2d, Because he keeps their Car.!'1 (Rome) away from them, and bas done all he couid to keep np confusion and brig andage: to disunite and enslave them, in stead of uniting them ard liberating them. si, Uecause, breaking his solemn pro mise, be betrayed them after the victories of Monteballo, Magenta and Solferino. 6tb, Beoaase the Italians are republi cans, e-.d the tmperor is the perjured de stroyer of European Repbulieanism. (The man is also doing his best to be now tbe destroyer of American Republicanism. Tbe .-tries hate Napoleon, beoaase they are rlepublloens, and good ones, and know him to be the treaoherouj enemv of liberty. Bo', what is more important than all the rest, and it is, by the blessing of the Great Beit g, perfectly true, 'The French people and lb i rrench army are hearilv sick of Napoleon " From long praouoe, l epeac r renon rlr ihe same as Envlisi', and had ex ollent opportunities for a-quiring infor mation bjtb going through rranoe, return ing, and ia i on my late visit. I am astounded at tbe state of things, I never could have believed it. On my saying a word about the tmperor and Mexioo, peasants, farmers, bourgeois, pri vate soldiers and offioera, go off into tor- ente of invective against the Emperor, such as I eonld hardly have imagined, and that in the presence of an .bnglisnman Snoh davs as those of Louis XVI. and Morie Antoinette may not be so distant as people suppose. The French are a fierce, fiery, and haurhly race, and l can only look on the Emperor as titling on the peak of a veleino in imminent danger of eruption. Yon will naturally want to know wnai tbe French themselves put forward as ibeir principal rrievanoes: 1st. For eacb of tne last tnree years, toe conscription has been 100 000 a year, the previous maximum having been only iu,- 000. 2d. One hundred thousand having been sent to Mexioo, (and the Frenoh hate sea- voyages 1, of which only to,uou, at moet, remain alive. 31 That the regiments sent to Menoo were selected as beine the most Repnbli ean. the most Leritim s', or tbe most Or leanist, and the Bonapsrtist regiments len at home. 4th. That Reoublioan. Legitimist, and Orleanist officers, were unfairly eiehiog ed into the doomed regiments. 6ih. That the luxury, vioe and exlrava- gaooe of tbe Court are eyond measure, ard tbe Bnanoes, or the oountry are rionslv mffirinr therefrom. 6!h. That tbe turbulent psncy oi 'ne Emperor is resuscitating the Holy Al ianoe,vitl rrossia, Austria, ana xwassia, against France. There is no doubt this s quite true. Tbe French don't like to be hrouffhL wiinout cause, into a war wm hree nations at a time, ana mey mini believe with justice if with three, then with four fearful odds ! Also Italy ; that makes five. Then the whole Mohamme dan population of Africa, with Turkey, x a very poor looa-out.

WASHINGTON,May 28—11 P. M. The President and Seoretary Beward are known to be very bitterly opposed to the unanimous aotion of the House on the subject of Frenoh interference in Mexico, and the Chroniole of this morning has an apparently semi-official artiole bescechiag Congress not to embarrass the administra tion on the subjeot of the joint lesolution givi ig notice of the abrogation of the Reciprocity Treaty. The House had a vote to-day standing 74 for, 82 against. The Committee on Ways and Mesas are making an effort to increa e very largely the scale of duties on imports. It is un derstood that Mr. Morrill will oppose any markd chaT fmk tba wld duties. Second Dispatch. WASHINGTON,May 26. Tbe following is believed to be a striotly aoourate account of the disgraceful rseault last night on Senator Chaodler, in the Publio Dining Hall of the National Hall : Mr. Chandler, with Dr. Clark, of Detroit, and a lady with two children, were taking dinner at a side-table, when in the oourse of conversation on the political questions, he denonnced, in very strong tetms cop perheads generally, and especially those of the Western States. Mr. Vnrhecs. of Indi ana, was sitting at another table behind him, (Chandler) with Mr. Hannagaa, also of Indiana, when Mr. Vorheea arose from his seat end approached Chand ler in an excited manner, demanding whether he referred to him, to whioh he replied. " Who are you, sir : I don t know you,"at the same time rising from his obair. Mr. Voorhees replied, "lam Voorhees, of Indiana." Suiting the aotion to the word he struck Mr. Chandler on the side of the face. The two then closed, and the Sena tor was rapidly getting the better of Vor. hees, when Hannagan eame to the tatter's assistance with a heavy milk pitcher, which he broke on Mr. Chandler's head, the contents of the pitcher splashed over the whole company. Chandler was stunned by the blow, and had not fully recovered himself when Hannagaa dealt him a second blow with a chair. At this juncture the parlies present Interfered and the belligeranM were seperated. Chandler's head wss'slightly out by pitcher, and his shoulder and arm were considerably br. ised by a obalr. Though not able to olose his band, he bas been out to-dav attending to his usual duties. Vorhees is quite as large a man Chandler, posciblr a little lar.tr. Several persons sealed at the table are nnsitiva that Mr. Chandkr mate r mention of him personally. MISSOURI RADICAL. STATE CONNECTION. TKIN. JEFFERSON CITY,May 26.

Mr. Johnson offered a resolution of in quiry, calling upon the President for ia formation as to the deliverv of Senor Argneiies to the epanish autoorties. Mr. roweil offered a resolution, oharaa. terizing the act of the Administration in suppressing the publication of the New York World and Journal of Commerce, aa a violation oi too constitu ion.

Adjourned. HOUSE. a no a and ap pear his Mr. Washhrrnc, of Illinois, from the Committee on Commerce, asked leave to rep'-rt a bill appropriating $25,000 for the preservation and repair of the public works on the lakes, andf 10,000 for similar purposes on the sea coast. Mr. Washbnrne said that in the present oondition of the country, the Committee would not report any general river and harbor bill, but they considered it neces sary that the appropriauon proposed should be made in order to save the works from destruction. This was all whioh could now be accomplished. He desired that the bill should be printed, and called up on a future occasion. Mr. elevens nhiMted nntess tbe bill sbotl be considered in Committer of the Whole on the state of the Union. Mr. Washburne cave notice that he would move for a suspension of ths rules to introduce it next Monday. me nonse men resumed the eonsidera tion of the reciprocity question. Mr. Baxter, of Vermont, proceeded to show that the term reoiprooity as app led to the treaty is a misnomer; no mutual rights are given to the United States by the British Provinces, and tbe treaty should be abrogated. Mr. J. C. Allen, of I linois, opposed tbe abrogation; with the Mississippi and the Su Lawrence elosed against the West, the railroads and canals would compel ag riculturalists to trantport their produots to market and to pay just such tribute as they may exaot. Mr. Sweet, of Maine, said that we can succeed better while the treaty ia alive than if dead. The treaty is really what it beneficial to tbe fishenei and tbe snip buiding interests, and it would be better te revise it than abrogate it altogether. Mr. Duvie, of Maryland, argued mat the commercial treaty of this kind is a dlreot invasion of the constitutional pro rogation of Congress to regulate oommerce ith foreign nations. Trade should oe subieoted to taxation as far ai onr inter ests are concerned. Among otner reasons, he opposed tbe treaty, because reoiprooity between the United States and Canada was the last remnant of Demoeraoy and of free trade, wh eh was benefioial to foreigners and hurtful to us. Mr. Liltlf iohn, of New York, said that when we are overburdened with taxation to carry on an internal war, it became nise statesmen to prrmote the prosperity of tbe people in ev ry department. He entered his protest against the abrogation or tne treaty, woion nas uunng us exim- onoa been vastly benefioial to the innaoit ants on our borders. He was in rvor oi appointing commissioners, in order to make a more perfect Treaty of Reoiprooity, and he trusted that the House would not oonsent to its complete abrogation. Mr. Morrill of Vermont, said there was not a single gentleman, ho bas addressed tbe House, who did not admit at tbe tut set, that ihe trea y operates injuriously to the United 8' tics. There oould be no goid cause forofiens in giving the t otioe fur the abrogation of the traatv, because suot nonce is provtieu for in the treaty itself. He was more than ever convinoed that there is not a single interest which is benefitted or can be ben efice 1 by this. Mr. Washburne was in favor or aorogat- inff the treatv. and said that if Great Britain geti the benefit of it, let Great Britain herself ask forotherarrapgements Mr. Ward of New York, who reported the ioint resolution, closed the debate Tbe House first voted on the amendment of Mr. Arnold of Illinois, namely, author ixinc the President by and with tbe ad vice and consent of the gena'e to appoint three commissioners to confer with a like number of commissioners, duly authoriicd hv the British Government, io negotiate a new treaty bssel on true priuoiples of reciprocity bnun th gnwmrtx m.ni. with a view of enlarging the basis of the Dresent treaty and for the removal of the existing difficulties; provided, that in eaBe one shall not be agreed to by both govern ments, then the rreaid ntsnau give tne nntioe for the termination according to the nrnviaions of the present treaty. 1 his was K. ... . rj i- AT disagreed to, oy a vote oi o to .

"Billy" Milligan In a Duel. were present The Sacramento (C'al ) Union says that me notorious Billy Mulligan fought a duel at Austin, l-allifornia, on the 20lh of April, with one Tom Coleman. The weapons were revolvers ; six shots were fired and two hundred spectators The Uuw says: Coleman won the choioe of position and word the agreement beiog after the word " gentlemen, are you ready ? fire," after tne word are," both to fire indiscrim inately. Both the principals exibited the utmost coolness and uuninchiug nerve, though it was evident that Mulligan had " me advantage, as bis every movement showed evidences of his bsing an expert, while Coleman appeared some --.awa.wara and eiumey. After taking ,'". VMo n the ground, Barney aiunigan snooa bands with his brother and retired Bradshaw gave the word, and boih pistols were discharged almost ..u.uiLaueougiy. At ihe first fire, however, bath shots fell short. At the Mulligan's shot broke the second finger of - -' b - - uauu, wuiou occasioned him some diffioulty in oocking his piatol though he maatained his position without flinching, and continued firing, all his shots seeming to f 11 short, however, as Mulligan did not receive a scratch. It is thought Coleman's ourth shot went off prematurely, aa the ball struok near the feet of Cart. Duncan, throwing the aanil in his lace. Mulligan's fifth shot tn.-.V effeot in the flesh r part of Coleman's thigh, inflioting a slight flesh wound. His laetshot was made with such delibe ration that it seemed almost imp:ssible that he should fail to kiil his antagonist, but the ball went wideofits mark. Mull Mired his pistol evidently thinking oocking his pistol, m W, -- r. sir I" Coieman replied. " I believe I am," although he had only fird five shots. After the first fire Bradshaw said to Coleman, "Tom, raise your fire." Both parties maintained Ibeir original po itions firing without adranoing. At the con clusion Mulligan desired tbe pH'ols loaded again, but the seconds very properly would not permit it. Anecdote of General William Luring. The soldiers in the Confederate States army have acquired a bad habit of giving loubrifutt to such persons as they see fit, with whom they ooma in oontact. If the individual take any offense, so much the better, the fun beoomes fast and fu rious, and the nickname attaches iUelf to the party long after its origin has been forgotten.
