A. question nf contest in the second dis trict arosp. owing to the committee seat ing J. Fv Cary, and mnr.h excitement and confusion reeulted. While the con vention was voting on the subject Mr. Cary appeired upon thp stand Hnd with drew his name as a delegate. The re port was then adopted. The committee on permanent organization reported Hon. George H. Pendleton as perma nent president, and Jas. W. Newman, of Bc:oto, as secretary, with th Ksttal nucacer of vice-president. The report was dnpied and Mr. Pen dleton conducted to the chair. After an address from the presiding officer, the report of the committee on resolutions ws read. Tho committee macta tro re ports; that of tho majority was as fol lows; Ttie Democratic party of Ohio makes this declaration of principles: Resolved, That in the present Corrup tion In tbe affilra of the Federal gov ernment the public credit ha3 Ueeli Im paired and the pcbllo honor has been stained, and we demand, in tho name of tbe people of Oiiio, that every investi gation already inaugurated by the house of representatives shall be prosecuted, and every new effort necessary Bhall be made to expose tbe fraudn of Federal of-fice-hel lers, and bring the guilty to puni&hmcn'. JResolvedt That we thank the house of representatives of the congress tf the United States for its efforts in the reduc tion of public expenditures reducing them, as is proposed, nearly forty mil lion dollars; for ita exposure of the frauds and corruptions of the Rspubli can administration, which have been all-peivadlng, and Btsk the people of Ohio to Condemn, for his attt m?ts to TiVent tuch exposures, the Republican President, who has refused to surrender paperj wben demanded, and declared that a confessing crinlnal should not be punished; a Republican senate, which has refused to pa s tbe bill adop'ed by the house granting immunity to wit nesses who have testified against their associates in fraud, and the Republican judiciary, which has discharged wit nesses imprisoned for contempt of the authority of tho house in refusing to an swer questions necessary to expose guilt in office. Jlesolvcd, That we favor a return to spec e payment when the same can be done without disturbing the business of tbe country, and to that end, and in or der that the debtor class may not be further embarrassed, we demand the re peal of the resumption act of 1875, and opr 038 any measure of legislation which shall arbitrarily fix the day for euch re sumption. Resolved, That the charters of the national banks ought not to be renewed and each of said bar ks should be wound up at the expiration of the term for which it is chartered, and in lieu of its circulating notes treasury notes of the United States, convertible into coin on demand and receivable for all debts or taxes doe to the United States, should be issued to the extent required by the necessities of the government. Resolved, That we favor a tariff for revenue only. Resclved, That in the celebration cf the one hundredth anniversary of American Independence, the Demo cratic party congratulates itself and the people of tbo whola country on the proud part it has taken in our post glo rious history. It points to nearly a cen tury of civil administration without do mestic strife; to foreign wars successful ly pr sauted; to the extension of the American territory and the glory of the American name; to the most astonish ing development ol our internal re sources, and to such maintenance of our external power as always compe ted respect to the American flag. It invites the people of Ohio to sustain it in its ef fortu to reduce the expanditures of the government, to restore old-time honesty to tbe administration of public affairs, and to establish & kindli-r feeling be tween the people of the States, that tbe bond of their Union may be perfect. The reading of the report was followed by that of the minority of the commit tee, by General Morgan, who claimed that tbe report represented nino out of twenty members of the committee. It is as follows: Resolved, That recognizing the duty of tho Democratic party as tho time honored champion of the rights of the many against tbe aggressions of the few to express its purpose in the pending cur rency conflict, without reserve or equiv ocation, we declaro that we shall urge against all opposition, come from what quarter it may, measures to effect the following objects: First The immediate and uncondi tiou repeal of the Republican resump tion law. Second The defeat of all schemes for resumption which, involves either a con traction of the currency, perpetuation of bank issues, or au increase of tbe inter est burden of the debt. Third The gradual, but early substi tution of legal-tenders for national bank notes. Fourth The issue by the general gov ernment alone of all the circulating niemum, wnetner paper or metai ic. Fifth No forced inflation, no forced contraction, but a s mil currency equal to the wants of trade and industry, to be regulated in volume and gradually equalized with gold by means of appro priate legislation, such ob making it re ceivable for customs and interconvert ible at the pleasure of tho holder, with bonds bearing an interest not to ex ceed three andaixty-flvo one hundredths per cent., piynnie in gold, so that the volume of currency shall not be deter mined by the pleasure or caprice of either congress or the banks. Sixth A graduated income tax to meet at least tbe premium on the gold needed to pay Interest on the public cobt. Resolved, That public policy and a sense of common justice requires tbat tbe silver Issued by the government should be a legal-teuder In payment of all deb .s, public and private, and that we demand tho unconditional repeal of the so-called silver act, so far as the same limits the amounts for which the said sliver coinage can be a legal-tender. Resolved, Tbat we are in favor cf a tariff for revenue only, and wo denounce the Republican schema of resumption as intended and operating through the largo incteaso of the bonded debt, and a sudden and enormous contraction of the currency, to double the burdens of taxation, rob debtors cf their property, paralyse the productive and commercial interests, cast laborers out of employ ment, and fill the land with want and misery, for the wicked purpose of doub ling the value of money securitlei and subjugating the maf s of people to the imnetious sway of a money mocarchy. Resolvid, That the Democracy of Ohio present to the Democracy of the other sovereign StaUB of tho republic, the name of William Allen, as the choice of Ohio for tbo Presidency. Resolved, Tbat tbe delegates at large to the St. Louis convention, aud that the delegates appointed by tbe congres sional districts, are hereby requested, in the national convention to voie in favor of William Alien for President, and to use all honorable means to secure his success. The reading of the minority report was followed by considerable confusion. Severs1; speeches were made for and against its adoption. Finally, under the previous question, a vote was taken upon tho report of the minority as a substitute for the majority report, and it was auopieu oy a voie oi atH ayes . jj-n nays. Much CCLlusioh followed, and Bsveral LioUons were made to adjourn, but were voted down, 'ihe report was than adopted by a vote of 383 ayes to fl nays, many delegates Imrihg left the hall. The eonVentien then balloted for the nomination of S ate officers, , with the following result: For eefaetsry 3! 6tate, William FU, or LicKing county, by ac clamation : for judge of tho supreme court, William Finch, of Perry county; for member of the board of public work?, H. P. C ough, of Butter county. ElGetorB-atrlarire Judge Wm. Lang, Seneca county: Granville Stokes, War ren eounty. Delegates to t. Aiouis George H. Pendleton, Wm. L. O'Brien, General George H.

The Dem ocratic State convention met here at eleven o'clock this morning, with about three hundred deltpates in attendance, the largest representation in a Demo cratic convention for years. Judge Kinne, of Tara, was chosen temporary chairman, acd T. O. Walker and N. W. Garner secnstariesi Pommtttees Wero appointed, and the convention took a reCesa till tVo o'clock. At the susrnoon session Hon. H. H. Trimble was elected permanent chair man. On a call of the roll, thirty-four counties failed to respond, but three hundred and twenty-six tlelega'es were present. It was decided to hold two State Conventions, and merely to elect delegates to St. Louis at this conven tion. Resolutions were adopted which de clare that in view of the weakness of the present administration and the cor ruption which pervades and permeates the Republican party, It is no l3nger fit to bear the "responsibilities of tho government; demands re form, and demand of the National Democratic convention such pledges of uprightness and decency for the admin istration as will command tbe confi dence of the purest and most patriotic men o' the country, and tbe selection of standard-bearers of known probity who are pledged to reform. The financial resolution is as follows: Resolved, That inasmuch as gold is the recognized standard of values throughout the world, and furnishes the basis for general trade and commerce, we favor an early return to specie pay ment, because it will place the business interests of the country on a sure and satisfactory bisis and eecure us from the uncertainties attending the existence of two moneyed mediums of unequal val ues. At tbe same time we bellevo that a forced and sudden resumption of spe cie payments, such as is contemplated by tbe so-called Sherman resumption act of 1876, will cause disaster and ruin to cur business interests. It has had, and is now having, a blighting effect on all industry, and being one of the many blunders of the Republican party, should be rapoaled. The resolutions were adopted unani mously. A spirited and lively contest was hsd over the selection of delegates at large to the national convention. Tho follow ing were selected: H. H. Trimble, M. M. Ham, O. Finch, and B. T. Mont gomery, with Edwin Campbell, J. H Crawford, D. B. Evans, VanMeter, al ternates. Delegates from tbe various districts were selected, and two alternates from each district. The delegates were Instructed to vote as a majority of the delegation should direct. The convention adjourned at six o'clock. The proceedings were harmo nious. A canvass of the delegates to the St. Louis convention to-night shows that seventeen of the twenty-two have a decided preference for Tilden, and the Tilden leaders asssrt that the delegates will vote for him as a unit; on the other hand, one of tbe delegation, and a lead ing man, asserts that a majority of the delegation are for Hendricks. The National Prohibition Convention. Cleveland, Ohio, May 17. The National Prohibition convention, for the purpose of nominating a Presiden tial ticket, met in Halls's hall in this city this morning.

The committee on resolutions not being ready to report, the secretary read a number of letters from prominent Prohibitionists throughout the country. The letters were ordered to be printed in the proceedings of the convention. The committee on platforms not being ready to report,the convention adjourn ed till evening. At the evening session the committee on platforms presented a report Teafllrming the prohibition plank of tbe platform of 1872, and presented some additional planks, embracing everything under the sun that they could think of, inoluding woman's rights, the bible in the schools and op position to polygamy. The platform adopted, the convention proceeded to ballot for candidates for President. General Green Clay Smith received the nomination on the second ballot, and accepted in a short speech. G. T.

The resolutions adopted pledge a continued support to the Republican party, and arraign theDsmocratic party as false to the trust reposed in it; a be lief that the welfare or the country de mands tbe firm establishment of those principles with which the history of the Republican party is identified; a firm maintenance of the national faith, as embodied in tho amendments to the constitution, which sum up and eecure the results of the war: the hearty and unqualified support of the doctrine of national unity and equal rights lor an classes and conditions of men; the full payment of the obligations imposed on the country by a long and destructive war forced on us by the insane and winked nillcv of the leaders of the Democratic party north and south; a ...

Nineteen States aie represented by two hundred and thirty-nine delegates. The convention took a reces3 until half-psst seven o'clock to-night. The evening session resulted in noth ing. The time was occupied in a dis cussion as to how tho vote of the States not fully represented Khould be cast. The subject was laid on the tabl", and tho convention adjourned till nine o'clock to-morrow rooming. The delay was occasioned by the ina bility of the committee on platform to report, and also, probably, by the diffi culty in selecting the name of a Presi dential candidate fcr presentation to the convention. 1 7 euuesMCo Republican Convention. NASuvir.LR, May 1'. The Republi can State convention Liet here this morning. Two hundred delegates were present, one-fifth of whom are coloied. There were very few spectators in the galleries.

R. H. Taylor, of Panola, as our choice to repre sent us in the next congress. Resolved, Tbat in this action, while we do not intend to reflect upon, or de tract from the merits of any one who maybe aspiring to said position, we claim for Senator Taylor unimpeacha ble integrity in attachment to the princi ples of justice, without regard to per sonal or private Interests; and during the years of his brilliant political career, every step seems to have been taken in the right direction, and to have given full evidence of his capacity and discre tion, having coma to the front In the darkest days of onr political horizon as the standard-bearer of the Democratic Conservative party, and, with Indomita ble energy and truthful logic, defeated the comblnsd efforts of hla opponents, both in the canvass and in the senate. Resolvea, further, Tbat a copy of these resolutions be sent to the Batesville Blade, Panola Star and the Memphis Appeal, and that they be requested to publish tho same M. 15. JON em. President.

Dr. D. D Whedon was unaniniinsly e'ected editor of the Quarterly Review, and Dr. J. H. Vincent editor of the Sunday school papers and tracts. Tbe election of the editors of the Christian Apologist and German Magazine was postponed till to-morrow. Messrs. Nelson & Phil lips were re-elected, by acclamation, agentB for the New York book concern, and Messrs. Hitchcock & Walden, tho only nominations for agents of the West ern book concern, were also re-elected by acclamation. A motion to postpone the election of editor of the New York Christian Advo cate was lost, and Dr. D. Curry, C. H. Fowler and E. O. Haven were put id nomination. The first ballot resulted as follows: Whole number of votes, 321; necessary to a choice, 161 ; C. H. Fowler received 162; D. Curry,143; E. O. Ha ven, 10; scattering, 6. Dr. Fowler was then declared elected. The election cf editors of the north ern, northwesterr, Pittslurg and Cen tral Christian Advocates and Atlanta Methodist was postponed till to-morrow. Rev. H. C.

New York, May 17: The shipments of gold and silver to-day are placed at about seven hundred thousand dollars. The sale by sealed proposals of tbe six per cent, gold bonds of the city of Cin cinnati, of one million five hundred thousand dollars in amount, was decided. The proposals were opened at the American Exchange bank, aud ranged from 103 to 105. We shouldn't be surprised if those Democratic papers who have so frantic ally rushed to the support of Hendricks for President, will yet conclude that they were unnecessarily hasty. Mr. Hen dricks has a very foolish friend named Kerr, the tool of eastern money power, and by the erace and ignorance of a majority of Democrats In the house of representatives, is speauer 01 mat tjooy, who may yet make it necessary for western Democrats to knife Mr. Hen drlcas In the St. Louis convention, as a matter of self-protection.
