Yesterday's APi'BAi an nounced the sad tidings of the death of Colonel Jtoneneon iopp,anu mis morn ing vre are celled upon to cbroalclo the death of Usneral John C. Fizer, of the Ann cf Fizer, Eites & Co. General .Fizsr wes a delegate to the recent Cem ucratic Btate convention and wa3,l robatt health until a fe)v,dajB frce, when ho was seized with aV3)lent at tack of llux, which resulted 1 his death yesterday evening. Up to the last moment ha was ratiowjy, aD,i discoursed with his relations rt d friends about his woildJy affilris wllS a coolness and courage indicative of the man. He was a thorough gentleman, full of chivalry, coura?sand generosity, and Tils death Is universally deplored through out the cily. General Fizer was about ihirty-Btven yeajs of age, ws lakej in Mississippi, but when only seventeen years of age he removed to Memphis and connected hicieclf with the house of B&rnett Graham. Young as ho was, he 'was fast making a refutation bs a buslnea man when the war broke out. He was one of the first to espouse iho Confed erals cause, and fought bis way up from 21 private to the position of brigadier general. There ws not a tvuer or braver man in, the Confederate srrny Jhan John C. Fizer. He wa;in nanny engagements luring the war, am' h dauntless cour- age was univervtiiy known. At the commencement of the war ho went out as flrst-Iieutrenant of the Panola Guards, a comparjy raised in Panola county, Mississippi, by Captain Foot. When in Virginia he was appointed adjutarit'of in. Seventeenth Mississippi regiment of Infantry, and. on the reorganisation of the army of the Potomac he was elected lieutenant-colonel of the Ssventeenth Misjhsippi.Danbar Holder being elected caTonel, and our present city Recorder, Wm. L. DafT, being elected major. Col onel Holder wca wounded and retired, and was elected a member ot the Con federate congress from Mississippi. Col onel Fizer wss elected colonel, and Major DufI became lieutenant-colonel of the regiment. At the battle of Gettys barg Cnlonel Fiaer wri desperately woorsdtsd, aud was also wounded nt Knoxvllle, Tennessee, where lie lost his right arm, he at that time belonging to Ganeral Long street's corps, which came from the army cf Virginia to reinforce the army of Tennessee, and which afterward en gaged In the bloody struggle at Chicka manga. "When Colonel Fizrr recovered from the effects ot hia desperate wound, he took charge of a brigade in South drolica under Division-Commander Ganeral M'-Lawe, where he remained until the close of the war. President Dvh bad sent General Fizer his com mission as brigadier-genera',but it never reached him, the war terminating in the mean time, and all communication be ing cut off between the seat of gov ernment and the South Carolina command. His nature was peculiar ly aggrrsslvp. He had a driving energy which often mads him appear overbear ing and dogmatical. To the casual oh. server, General F.zer's character some times seemed haieh and his nature cold and self-willed, but he was mero putty in the hand of those who had his confidence, while his friendships were sincere and immovable. He was a stranger to dis simulation, and detrsted hypocrisy to such an extent that even for the attain ment of his ambitious aspirations, the word policy wpj unknown to his vocab ulary. Early in his brilliant military career he gave evidence of an aptitude for the field, and displayed an executive anility which made him afterward so prominent among our southern heroes who went forth to battle for the lost cause. Emotions of no ordinary nature must fatir the heart of every true soldier in recalling his chivalric deeds and un exampled heroism. Among tho gallant tons of our noble State who rallied around that never to be forgotten ban ner the red, white and blue the name and feme of General Fizer will go down to history in Imperishable honor and re nown. He was a proparous mer chant, engaged in a large and extensive business. He was punctilious in tho observance of every prerequisite for nuking a good citizen. He wrs a .fearless, earnest man. He never spoke with a double tongue. His friends and his foes always knew precisely what he was and what he meant. He wrs sincere, truthful) just, and an honest man, and his deatn is deeply mourned by the whole communi ty.

E?artsfor President, and Bristow for tho second place, if the re port about the strength of this combina tion, as circulated here, be correct, it will prove a fdrrnidabla one." The an nouncement of this report was bulletined by the Eoening Post early this morning, and the ticket was declared by hundreds of persons to ba invincible. The Post, editorially says that Euch a ticket would harmonize the d:soordant .factions, and Unite the eastern and western States on candidates who wo.jid ?ecure both tho eupt-ort o! the parly and the favor of the reformers.

The sixth Na tional convention of the Bepublican party fnet at noon rn-riav. in th Hmn. mtion buIIdiDg. The attendance was greater than that of any previous trath- ering of the patty, and embraceJ the most noted men in its ranks, who either sat upon the floor es delegates or as guests of hohor upon the raised platform in the rear of the presiding officer. To these wbo Tiad not attendee the conven tion hold four years ago in PhiJftdelpnls, the number of celored ueleeatri caused some fiuiprisSi Among them were con gressmen' or ex congr'-smen from South Carolina, Alabama and other southern States. The delegations were admirably grouped upon the floor, facing the stage. The eolid mrss of New York il t . men occHpien me ieic center; on their right were the New England States, formed in single file, Maine at the head ana Bhode Island at the rear, with Iowa imme diate ly behind her. To the left of New York, and fronting the Stege was In diana, and behind Her the Morton men x)f Tennessee, Mississippi, Texes and Georgia. To the lett again came Ne:w York and the Carolina;, with Virginia bringing . up the rear. The extreme ieft flank w.i allotted to the white-hotted Pennsylvanians, who came to.fight for Hartranft; the right flank fall to the lot of Ohio, behind which were placed, in order of merit, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, the Territorial delegates,and thoao from some of the petty States were tucked away in, the' rear, wherever they could be used to utilize some waste plat of ground. Tbe hall in which the con vention assembled this morning' is an immense frame structure, with seating capacity for at ler.st seven thousand. Tba. building was erected In the spring of 1870, for the Satngerfest held in this city during tbe following summer. The bail, the same year, witnessed the inau guration of the Cincinnati exposition, which has since been held yearly in the building. In 1872 the hall w.b formally dedicated to polit'cal purposes by the Greeley convention, and has since been used for variors political demonstrations, the last of which was the Democratic State convention of Ohio three or four weeks ago. The interior arrangements have apparently been made with a view to the accommodation of the hu man voice. The platform is located near the center of the hall and raised abcut six feet above the level of the floor. The chairman's desk is decorated with a muslin wrapper, and is ornamented1 on ttie eastern face with a glory in red, wmte and bine muslin, in tne rear of the nlatform. rlsinz bveasv stazes to the level of the balconies, are sears for some seven or eignt nunarea tnvitea guests, among whom are a number of ladles. A space of fifteen feet in width, extending along mo lace 01 tne piatiorm, nas Deen set apart for the nse of the press. In front of this the delegations are placed in an inclciure separated by a rail from the body of the haU; the position of each, delegation is indicated by a card fixed on a pole and bearing the name of the State. To the east of the inclosure the remainder of the hall is given up to the alternate delegates and the general crowd who have possessed sufficient in fluence or assurance to procure a ticket of admission. The pressure for tickets of admission has been fearful, and the dissatisfaction general, especially among the newspaper men, whesa proper claims have been steadily ignored by the local committee. Am- Ele as the building is, it could a filled thrlca over if all the applicants for entrance had been gratified. As the hour for beginning proceedings ap proached, tbe rush grew more and more intense, ana at a iew minutes to twelve the aisle3 were jammed, and the rush and bustle of the crowd could be heard even above the clanging brasses of the band. The balconies unon either side and at the rear of the hall are occu pied by a miscellanous crowd, among wnom appears tne lace 01 uon raaguire, who become known to fame a few months ago in connection with whisky matters in St. Louis. Tne posts and arches supporting the roof are decorated with national colors, which also hang in festoons in the intervening spaces. In order to improve upon the Liberal convention held here in 1872, which had a fountain in the rear of the hall, the local committee in charge of the ar rangements secured the services of a brass nana, wnose playing wuea away the time during which tne early dele gates were waiting for tbe calling to or der of the convention. Tne music also came in conveniently at a later hour to fill the awEward pauses. At a few min utes after twelvo o'clock the convention was called to order by Governor E. D. Morgan, chairman of tbe Bepublican .National committee, who introduced Bsv. Dr. Muller, of Covington, Ken tucky, who made a prayer, after which Uovernor morgan saia: Gentlemen of the Convention Tne day and the hour have arrived for which tne representatives ot tne re publican party were invited to assemble to nominate candidates for President andjVice-President of the United States, and in oteJlence to me authority ot tne Bepublican National committee. I now respectfully ask that you maintain or der. In 1856, at Philadelphia; in 1860, at Chicago, and in 1864, at Baltimor , acting under the same general author ity, it hes been my privilege to call Bs pnbllcan conventions to order. If I ex cept the actioa of the convention of 1864, the duties which this intelligent body has to perform in comparison with former ones are the most important of all. There is no special or parliament ary authority for any remarks from the chair; in the nature ot things there can not be any. Custom only is my excuse, if excuse is needed, for even a few words. In June, 1864, we were in the midst of the war for the preservation of the Union. We had great armies in tbe field, but they had not achieved only partial successes, and when 8ucces9fu', always at a very great cost of life. The bravest and best of our young men had fallen in bsttle by tens and hundreds of thousands, or were in prison at AndersonvJIe and Libby. President Lincoln, seventeen months prior to this, had, by proclamation, but only as & war measure, declared the slaves free, while their masters kept them within their lines and held full do minion over them. It wa3 then modest ly suggested by your chairman of the National commit teo that theconvention would not discharge its whole doty un less, among ita other resolve?, it enould -declare -for such an amendment of the national constitution as would, when edopted by the requisite number States, forever prohibit African Slavery uu mis continent. Tne suggestion was received with Unexampled enthusiasm by the convention. The resolution to secure thin national blessing was written in your party platform on that day. Both houses of congress yery soon aiier passea tne required amendment, twenty-nine corefelgll otates ratinea it, tae notve Liincoln pro- ciaimea tno result to tne people, and from that hour to this the sun has not rissn upon a bondsman and not set upon a slave in all this fair land, Not to the north, not to the south, but to that Su preme Being who alone controls the destinies of nations as well s the affairs or individuals, let us give all the glory. Bat all this is past, and the past we conclude is secure. Pardon afi, gentle men, if again, with meek modesty, I mate & t suggestion or two bearing directly on the present. This conven tion should emphatically demand the prompt and efficient execution of tho.-e solemn promises of both houses cf Con gress and the President to redeem in coin the legal-tender obligations of the government on the first day of January, 1879, ftnd eig. niry its opposition to auy modifica tion or repeal of this law thai docs not guarantee a till earlier or better method of returning to specie payment Let no doubtful word go out from this conven tion upon the enbjeot of Honeai money. Prices afe already at & specie goint. Stand firmly by yodr fesolutlona and platfdrma littles longer, and your cur rcn'cv basis will be transformed into a coin basis so easily and so naturally that you will be yourselves surprisedf regret ting only, as you will, mat it was not determined upon at an earlier day. Ba- snmption accomplished, then in all hu man probamiuy will follow ten or fif teen years of prosperity equal to that of any former periodi and perhaps greater than the country has yet seen. If you mil; in addition, put a plans in your nlauorm . declaring for such an amendment of the constitution bb will extend the Presidential office to six years and make the incumbent in eligible for re-election, you will deserve the gratitude of the American people. "As the mariner, when tossed for many days in thick weather avails himself of tbe earliest glance of the sun to ascer tain now far the elements have driven him from his true course," so in like manner at the end of one hundred years from the foundation of our government we, too, have come from the north, the south, the east and the west to take a political observation for the purpose of amending and improving our system of national government, as improvement is really necessary and jposaible. With this view we have come to this great and beautiful city of Cincinnati, on the banks of the grand, but placid Ohio, containing nearly three hundred thou sand souls, and where we now find every luxury that wealth, na ture or artisan can produce, but not where even a log cabin had been erected or a whita man born when our government was organized. The last three national conventions of our party have had indicated to them in ad vance the names of the candidates for the national ticket, so that they have been little else than ratification meet ings of decrees that have been made by the people, merely putting in form that which had already been decided upon. I allude to President Lincoln's second nomination, and to the nomination of the splendid soldier and patriot, General Grant. But such a state of things no longer exis'i. There appeals to ba at the present time no one to whom tbe uner ring finger points as the only candidate. There soms to be no man rising so far above all others" ai to cause exultant voices to exclaim: "Tbouart the man." The consequence is, that many distin guished names among our party friends have been mentioned es candidates, and will be brought before the convention when tho proper time arrivrsor making nominations. Therefore, it- is that I have exprersed myself e s seeing greater responsibilities rnting upon the dele gates to this convention than upon any or all that haveprec: Jed it. The history of the Bepublican party mrnishes abun dant evidence of its desire that the gov ernment shall be administered with honesty and economy, and, as a means to that end, that the civil service shall be elevated by the introduction of all needful and proper reforms. With such a history, and at a time like the present, it cannot ba doubted that the choice of the convention will fell on someone, whoever he may be, clearly committed on this question, not only by his ex pressed opinions, but also by his public life and conduct I will not further an ticipate the action of this honorable body, except to say that the firm sup port, on tbe part of the nominees, of all the recent amendments to the national constitution, and the support and main tenance of all other principles inyolved in the war for the preservation of -the Union, must also be regarded as tie pre requisites for the high offices of President and Vice-President of the United States. With this accomplished, it will be the highest duty, and should be the greatest pleasure, for all in authority to extend the warm hand of fellowship to all the good citizens of this Union, and, also, as rapidly as pos sible to forgive and forget the recent past, and to do every act to make us sat isfied to be and remain in fact, as we are in name, one people and one coun try. It is fit and proper, citizens of Cin cinnati, that the Bepublican National convention in this centennial year should be held in yonr city and under yonr auspices, as you, quite as fully as any other locality, represent in your selves the industry, the enterprise, tbe sublimity and grandeur of our country's growth and greatness. I am further re quested by the national committee to make a nomination for temporary pre siding officer of this convention ; I there fore nominate Hon. Theodore M. Pom eroy for that office. The motion was agreed to, and the chair designated Governor Baldwin, of Michigan, and Governor Van Zundt, pf Bhode Island, a commutes to conduct Mr. Pomeroy to the chair. Upon being introduced he spoke as follows: Gentlemen of the Convention I thank you most heartily for the com pliment conferred by calling me to pre side over the temporary organizitlon of tbls convention. I had been so long withdrawn from practical participation in political affairs, that it ip in obedience to custom ratber than my own inclina tion that I occupy even a moment of your time in a consideration of the politi cal situation and of the principles so long and so successfully intrusted to tbe keeping of the B publican party. Events have chased ech other so rapidly from the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln to the closing year of the administration of General Grant, fraught wfth such fundamental changes in the whole the oiy and practice of government, that tbe briefest consideration of them jn the briefest manner Is precluded npon an occiion such as thU. Brief as may be considered the existence of the Bepub lien parly, none other in tho history of the nation has for such a long, a consec utive period controlled its government without enconnter.ng popular defest, and still, notwithstanding popular jeal ousy of political ascendency, long con tinued by any paity, it is in the power of thi3 convention to designate the com ing President of the United States. Loud aud continued applause. Our folly may conceive what the wis dom of the opposition cannot achieve our defeat at tbe polls in .November but such a defeat can come from no other cause. We are met here, not as contending factions witnln tile party to test under various leaderships our rela tive strength, but as representatives ac cepting a high responsibility to extract from the crucible of conflicting opinions mat type of American stalesmansnip which shall be accepted as the worthy embodiment of the principles of the party. Applause. Men as well as measures are to be weighed in the bal ance during the coming months, and neither must bs found wanting to insure success. Applause. Tbe Republican party cnri'd!

J ask the freed men of the south if they are ready to accept the Democratic par ty as the source of power?

I ask a candid public if the only anarchy that exists to-day in the south is not th? an archy caused by the position of ijio Democratic party as such cheers to the principles adopted in the work ot recon struction? and now a part of the funda mental law of tbe land. Ths Demo cratic party claims to acsept the situa tion, respecting the sacredness of tho national debt, and the inviolability of the national credit, but twenty million dollars of taxation will not make good the annual loss to the American people from the indefinite and indefinable utti tude and actions of that party in regard to the payment of the principal of the public debt. In the prosecution of the war to overthrow the rebellion, and for the purpose of procuring ready money to pay the army and the navy, and to provide immense material for the war, it became necessary to suspend specie payment -and to make a forced loan from the people by declaring greenbacks a legal tender in payment of public and private indebtedness: vet. while claim ing to be in favor of a resumption of spe cie payment at some indefinite time and by means of some indefinite process, al thouch eleven veara-have elscsed since tne close 01 me vsat, a puteiiy oppotpi r me payment 01 me lorutu ioau, or iuo taklnsr of the fiut practical step toward resuming our position among the solv-H ent nations of the civilized world. Ap plause No, gentlemen, the lae war was a mere prlza-fight for material su premacy; it was me outgrowm 01 a con flict of irreconcilable moral, social and political forces. The Democracy cast Its lot with the moral, social and political forces of tbe cause which was lost; the Bsnublican Dartv with those which tri umphed and survived. The preservation of the result and of that victory devolves on us here and now. Democracy has no traditions of the past, no impulses of the present, no aspirations for tne future fittiug it for this task. The reaction of 1874 has already expended itself in a vain effort to realize the situa tion.

Dlttenhoefler, New York -Mr. Chairman, in behalf of the National German BeDUblican convention recent ly assembled in this city, over which I had the nonor to preside ana in watch twenty States were represented, I desir9 to present the following resolutions, to three of which I desire to call particular attention: Fjwt, advocating, in View of the recent decision of the supreme court of tho United States declaring State leg i lation on the sut ject of the protection of Immigrants unconstitutional, that the national government legislate on that subject. Secondly, demanding a revision of the treaties between the foreign governments affecting natural ization and expatriation; and third, de manding non-?ectarian schools cheers aud the taxation cf cbnrch property applause as recommended by tho Prefe ideas of tne United States in his mes sage. Applause I ak the parmis sion of this convention that a committee of three, of which Hon. Simon Wolfa is chairman, be allowed to attend the ses sion of the committee on resolutions and discuss them. The secretary then read tho resolu tions, they being referred to the com mittee 'iney are as follows: WHEBEA8, Toe Geimaa Bspublican delegates of the United States in con vention asjcmbled in the ci'y of Cincin nati. Jnno 12ind 13. 1876. havo adopted thotollowing declaration of principles for the coming campaign, and present ' the same to the National Bepublican convention for their favorable consider ation : First Wo declare our unalterable ad hesion to the principles of the Bepubli- cau puny, recognizing in tneir perpetu- awon tne oniy safeguard of the republic. Second Free non-sectarian schools. compulsory education, and taxation of churcn property, as expressed in the late message 01 tne President of the united States. Third Ko recognition of any custom Of worship by the State or Federal gov ernment, Sunday bsing recognised by the individual, and not by th constitu tion of the United States, and enforced legislation seeSIng to abridge the personal righto of the citizens with re spect fo its observance; is Unconstitu tional. Fourth The protection of immigrants by the Federal powers is dn indispensa ble necessity; legislation for bringing and protecting this important factor in the prosperity of the republic mtist be at once devised in view of the recent de cision of the supreme court declaring State legislation unconstitutional. Fifth In a republic there can be but ono cia33 01 citizens. The law must give the same protection abroad as at home. Any discrimination between these adopted and those native-born is unjust, and such legislation savors of kaownothingism, 'and is unworthy of . Apisrican statesmanship; thereforo we rdon&ud a. revision of the existing . 111. . . 5 . -r 2 treaties wuu loreigu governments, es pecially that of Germany, affecting naturalization and expatriation.

Ninth The nation is supreme, and not the State. The resolutions were referred to the committee on credentials. Upon the withdrawal of the commit tees tho band struck up a lively tune. and the delegates took the opportunity to move around and discuss the situa tion. While the committees were absent the baud was kept fully occupied to the disgust of these delegates who wished to ail in with patriotic speecnea. This ar rangement saemed to give satisfaction to tbe majority of the convention, but at one point a small, piping voice in one of the galleries cried out, "Speech from Governor Mawleyl" The suggestion was favorably received, but no speech was forthcoming by Mr. Hawley. Mr. Mason, l New xorKl 1 oner the following preambles and resolution: whereas, we sun remember with gratitude the services of loyal women of the country during the late war, their devotion in the hospitals of the north and their fidelity to the Union in many of tbe disputed districts of the south; and whereas, the Bepublican party has always advocated tne extension 01 nu man freedom, therefore Mesolved. That we favor the bestowal of equal, civil and political rights on all loyal citizens of the United States, with out regard to sex. They were received witn great laugu- ter and applause. (jfeorze. William uurtis, mew xorK I hold in my hand an address of the Be publican reform ciuo 01 tne city or New Yoik, which I havo been requested to lay before this convention, and to ask that it be read. I therefore move that tbe address which I have the honor to submit be now road to the convention. The Chair Is there any objection to the reading of the address. Objection was made by a delegate ram. South Carolina. The Ch&lr Objection in mailf. General crlea of: "Bead it!" 'Bead it!" The objecting delegate withdrew his objection, and the chair asked if there was any further objection to Its reading. Objection was matie by tne delegates from Louisiana and Delaware. The chair then put the question whether the address should ba raad, and the motion was carried by a decisive majority, amid cries of: "Take the plat form !" "Go forward to the platform." Mr. Curtis passed forward to the plat form, and while threading his way through the crowd was received with tremendous applause and cheers, which were renewed whe he took his place by the chairman's desk and faced the audi ence.

Tho allusions in tne address to a return to specie payments, the broken promises of the President and of con gress, and the proposition to place tbe political power or me country in tne hands of the Democratic party unless tho convention, by its nominations, ex presses a determination to reform things generally, were read with applause. Upon retiring from the plat'orm Mr. Curtis was escorted to his Beat amid a storm of cheers.

I move that all addresses, memorials and resolutions be referred to the committee on resolutions without reading and without debate. Carried. There were Icud calls for General Lo gan, who had taken his seat on the stage. He responded, and on being in troduced, spoks about twenty minutes. He was followed by General Hawley, of Connecticut; Governor Noyes, of Ohio; Bev. Henry H. Garrett (colored), of New York; Ex Governor Wm. A.

The committee farther reported that tnoy naa suomiitea no names or vice presidents and secretarys from Alabama ana oiner oiaies wnere mere was aoy oontest. Alter tne report 01 the com lUittt'e on credentials those vacancies would easily be filled. Mr. M'Clure, of Arkansas, insisted tnat me report should not be adopted until the report of the cbmmittee on credentials had been received. He moved to lay tho report temporarily on tbe table. Dr. Loring, the chairman of the com mittee, desired to state that this question was discussed in tbe committee, and turning to tbe report of the committee at Philadelphia in 1872 it was found that the committee on credentials re ported after the permanent organization of the convention, and it was on that account that thia report has been made, feeling that the convention had a por fect right to accept it of not, as they pleased, and that provision had been made for the contesting delegations by tho report of the committee. Mr. Mason Now York moved that thereport be adopted so fat as it related to Suites where there was no Contest. Baled out of order. A delegate from Maryland moved to lay M'Clure's motion on the table. The motion was agreed to. The delegates from Arkansas insisted that this motion carried the subject mat ter along with it, but tbe chair over ruled the point, stating that theconven tion had adopted no rules, hut made them up as it went along. The report was adopted, and thereupon ensued mo mentary calls for other speakers and motions to adjourn The Chair The flrfit business now in order, and ttie only Lddness; is the sur render of the cbalr to the permanent chairman named by the committee on organization. The chair, therefore1, names Messrs. Orton, of New York, Downing, of Iowa, and M'Cormick, of Arizona, as a committee to conduct the permanent chairman to the platform. Mr. M'rherson came torwaro, accom panied by tbe escort, and was greeted with cheers. The retiring chairman said: "I take pleasure in introducing as your per manent president, Hon. Elward M'Pherson, of Pennsylvania." Cheers. GENTLEMEN OF THE U0NVJ5JSTI0N No one of you knows better than myself how entirely unworthy I am of th's high honor. It has come to mo not ooly unsougnt, but with a lieiing 01 aosoiute and uncontrollable surprise. But I have been reared in the school of duty, and in the politics of Pennsylvaniadt is a fun damental doctrine that every Bepubli can shall do his whole duty applause, and therefore I am hero to accept this honor tendered by ycur committee and ratified by yourselves, as an honor ten dered to me great om jommonweaun which has sent mo as one of its delegates to this convention sinca 1856. In no one of the great contests has she ever fal tered. Applause In this centennial convention she has turned an inflexible, defiant face to the enemy. She says no truce with treason, malig nity and bolters, nor anyming mat is not national. Cheers She has de termined to roll up for me nominees of th's convention a majority such 33 will entitle her to continue to be what she has long been, and I say it with all re spect, foremost in the Bepublican cause. Applause. The chair is ready for busi ness. The president announced that tbe 00m- mittee on rules would meet at four o'clock at the Giba-orLhouse, and that they expected to report in the morning. The president also suggested the ap pointment of a member of the commit-, tee on resolutions to take his place, va cated by his elevation to the chair, and Wm. U. Mann was selected. On motion ot Mr. Cumbach flndl-' ana the convention then adjourned till ten o'ciock to-morrow morning. LATEST DEVELOPMENTS. So far as the nominee for President Is: concerned, there is an. apparent and ad mitted change siuca yesterday, it. nas been to weaken' Blaine, but seemingly not for the benefit of any other known candidate. A? to the causes to which tills ri:U-K tir la attributable, tit j vary with tbe Presidential preferences of tbe person who states them. Tbe Btistow men say it is due to the reproduction to day of Blaine's letters to Fisher, which they claim had never been read by eome of the delegates, ana Hurriedly read and never thoroughly understood by others. Some of the Conkling men siy that It Is due to an impression that cne nomination 01 uinniu wui result in the defeat of the Bepublican party. The Blaine men are said to have two hun dred and sixty-three votes sure for the first ballot. His opponents claim that that is his entire strength, and that he cannot gather any more into his fold. His friends assert that he has two hun dred and eighty pledged votes, though last night they put it at near three .hundred. He has, they say, a prospect of getting about three hundred on the first ballot. The majority of the Pennsylvania delegation, tney say, is surely for him, though Don Cameron and his associates, wno nave made a tremendous effort to swing the delega tion for Conkling, deny it, asserting that Pennsylvania is eolid for Hartranft, and wm remain so, mm. last ana an tne time. This is certainly in accord with the action of the caucus Tuesday even ing, but when it becomes evident that Hartranft has no chance, from forty to forty-eight of the delegates will, it is claimed, vote for Blaine. Overtures looking to a combination with the Conk ling interest have been made, but were unsuccessful. Hartracft's friends want blm at the head of the ticket, Their determination in this rcepect brought about a promise that in the event of Conkling being dropped, his strength would be given toHaitrauft This, how ever, is not relied on by the Pennsylva nia delegation, who any that the offer was made to secure reciprocity. It is vhispered abcui at a lato hour to night that juouisiana may vote ror Har tranft, which would remove any excuse the Blaine members of the Pennsylva nia delegation would have in desert ing the candidate of the Keystone State. It is thB general opinion that Senator Morton may be said to be where be was yesterday. Indiana will stand by him to the last syllable of the record ed votes. His friends say that they have been gaining in the south, and there ap pears to be some color for the impres sion. Tne inenaa 01 iu.r. uonming no not, by any means, say that he is out of the race. They have always been quiet, and have not bragged as loudly as some of the others. It is stated, however, on pretty good authority, that they have not much hope cf their candidate, and , are bending their sole and undivided en ergies to the defeat of Blaine. It is un derstood that they are working to-night in conjunction with the friends of the other candidates for the purpose of uniting their forces. The immediate result of this is that the friends of Hayes are more encouraged than ever and believe that he will be finally accepted as tho compromise can didate after a couple of ballots have shown tbe impracticability of uniting upon any other man. Secretary Bris tow's supporters are much more cheerfal than they were yesterday. They have some hope for their own man, but more for tbe defeat of Blaine. Tney believe that the reception of George William. Curtis in the convention this evening is an index that he is stronger thin tney hoped for. They are confident of one hundred and sixty-three votes on the firrt ballot, having received ssversl ac cessions since yesterday. Among these gains are a majority of tb Texas delegation, two from Pennsyl vania and four from Mississippi. The most prominent man who has come out Equarely for Bristow is Ex-Governor Alcorn, of Mississippi, heretofore regarded as doubtful. He was one of the vice-presiden'.sof the Bristow meeting at Pike's operabouso thin even ing. The present situation is considered very encouraging. Thero aro detailed estimates in circulation of the strength which Morton, Conkling and Bristow have, but they are the ones made out for publication, and are not trustworthy. It la believed that even the private cal culations of the leaders, tbe ones which they have faith in, aro somewhat at fault, and that the same men figure on many State. After the complimentary vote3 have been disposed of on the first ballot it is apparent that there j will be a largo body of dele gates concerning whose real sen timents ucrthing whatever is known, and tbe disposition of. Whose votes can only bo guessed at. These men consti tute a large and pofslbly a decisive ele ment In the convention. They have preserved absolute neutrality, and by failing to contradict what was said to them in praise cf the different candi dates have created the impression that they were In favor of them all. It is now apparent that some time will elapse before tbe voting will begin to morrow. After the discussion of the re port of the committee on credentials will come that on the report of the commit tee on rules, and it will in turn be fol lowed by some debate concerning the platform. Subsequent to tho adjournment of the committee on rules, Mr. Cessna, of Pennsylvania, at the request of several members, though, as he stated, without authority, called another meeting for half-bast ten "o'clock to-morrow morn ing. A Bristow meeting was held last night at, the Burnett house, at which the prin cipal address was made by Geo. Wm. Curtis. THE COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS. The committee-on resolutions met at seven o'clock mis evening and remained in session until after twelve. All this time was spent in discussing the finan cial question, polygamy and ihe south ern nd Chinese questions. No con clusion was. arrived at concerning any of them and most of them were referred to sub committees of five or seven whose conclusions will probably be accepted T?y the full committee, which will meet at nine o'clocH to-morrow, is is roe lleved that tbe conclusion which will be reached on the financial question, will be satisfactory to the hardmoney men. As regards the Chinese, It is doubtful if any satisfactory settlement can ba had. About the eouthern question compara tively little was said. The discussions on these points were animated, but not quarrelsome. Among the subjects discuss 5d by the committee was that of woman's suffrage, reiolutions on which subject Tiad been introduced. Two female suffragists pleaded their case before the committee. Tne sub-committee of seven,' to. which alt subjects have been referred, is hold ing an all-night session. A BBISTOW MEETING. A Bristow meeting was held to night at Pike's Operahouse, at which a large and intelligent audience was pres ent, and this, too, in spite of the meet ings elsewhere and the distracting tend er cy of the various processions, headed by bands of music, passing through tbe streets. Speeches were made by P. A- Chad burne, of Massachusetts, and Wm. C. Goodloe, of Kentucky. The meeting then adjourned, and pro ceeded to the Gibson house, where they serenaded the New York reform club, 1 then to the Burnett hcuse, where they serenaded Senator Harlan, and finally to the Grand hotel, where they called out Mr. George William Curtis. During the evening qne of the bands of music stopped in front of the Gazette office and serenaded them. A large crowd was attracted and calls were made for Bichard Smith, who mado a speech favoring-the nomination of Bris tol, or Hayea, or "the war governor of Irdiana." MORTON MEETINGS. Morton meetings were.held this even- leg one in front of the Gibson house, another at the Burnett house, and a third athe Grand hotel; The average attendance was similar, at from four to five hundred. The meeting at the Gib son, .house was addressed by colored speakers exclusively, among whom were, Pinchback. of Louisiana. Edward! Bdcher, of Georgia, .and Elliott, of r -utii c&roiina. At tho liarnettncoae the principal speaker was Joe Brooks,, of Arkansas, while tbe crowd at the' G.-and hotel were addressed by General Tom Browne, of Indiana, and J. C. Frtrden, ot Alabama. The burden of the speeches was that, while no dis paragement of other candidates should, be made, Morton stood head and shoul ders above his rivals for the nomination! in ability as well as in services rendered to the country. The committee on credentials had a meeting this evening, and after consid erable discussion excluded the Spencer delegation from Alabama and the Shep herd delegation from the District of Columbia. The exclusion of the Spen cer delegation, which is composed of ad herents of all the candidates, and the' admission of tbe anti-Spencer delega tion, who will give Bristow twenty votes, causes great rejoicing among the Bristow men. The vote is understood to have been twenty-four to seventeen. THE UNION NATIONAL VETERANS. The Union national veteran commit tee, appointed by the grand mass conj vention of soldiers and sailors, held at Pittsburg, in 1872, met ia the parlor of the Gibson House this evening. In the absence of General Burnslderwho is ill in Waahington, General Julius White, of Chicago, presided, Colonel L. E Dudley acted as usual as secretary. Sev eral admirable speeches were made by men whose names were household words in the old war, and who will ba heard from again ia tbe. coming cam paign. The committee was serenaded oy the band of the Pittsburg club, under command of General Negley, and Gear eral White briefly responded. The committee adopted the following resolutions: Resolved, That the soldiers and sail ors who served in the Union army and navy during the late war are requested to assemble in national con vention, at such time and place as the executivn committee may designate, in September, 1876, for the purpose of rati fying the Bepublican nominations at Cincinnati. Ganeral Burnside, being in ill-health and much oc cupied with his duties as senator, and at home, asked to be relieved from tbe active duties required of the chairman f the convention, and thereupon Major General John A. Dix, of New Yoik, was elected permauent chairman of the convention. TELEGRAPHIC ' BBEYITIES. Blaine went out riding late yesterday evening. The national convention of Nursery men and Florists met at Chicago yester day. The czar orBussia and Enperor Wil liam, of Germany, enjoyed a social con fab ar. isms yesieruay. m, AnnnlA flnnrlmr mill, the largest illOiiUftW. o J -- 1 in Wisconsin, were destroyed by lire, Tuesday night. Loss, thirty-five thou sand dollars. M. Balounde & Co., importers and dealers in provisions, of Havana, have failed, with liabilities estimated at five hundred thousand dollars. Beports from California show a heavy yield of wheat, exceeding by two hun dred thousand tons that of 1872. It is also said to be tbe best quality ever har vested in tne estate. The house of representatives was slim ly attended yesterday. The Bepublican element was particularly thin. It 6pent the- session in commiteo of the whole on the army appropriation bill, Mr. Blackburn in the chair. One hundred and sixteen thousand dollars were subscribed in Boston; yes terday, to save the Old South church building from destruction. It will re quire about four hundred thousand dol lais to purchase the building. Blaine's physicians at Washington took possession of the telegraph lines early yesterday morning to inform the world, and particularly tho Cincinnati convention, that their patient gorman dised his matutinal meal with a better appetite than before his attack. A. Mnrdcrons Desperado. TrrrjBviLLK, Pa , Juno 14 A special to the Herald this afternoon says that a man named Nick Bakev a resident of Columbia, tbio Rta'e, ged twerty-ono yeaw, entered the houseof a Mr. Doher ty, of that place, last night for the sup pesed purpose of lavishing Ma Doher ty. Being foiled in the attempt, in order to screen himself, he shot her, the ball entering her left breast, from the effects of which she died in twenty minutes. A man named Thdmas M'Cool hearing tbe Bhot went to the house to ascertain the cause of the trouble. Baker meeting him at the door fired the two remaining shots at him. M'Cool tried to flee, bnt stumbled, falling on his face, when Baker pounced upon him stabbing him several times in tne back and shoulders, which will prove fatal. Baker Is con fined.

The Berlin Provin zial has a very pacific editorial, which concludes as follows: "Between the last conference at Berlin and the interview of the Czar and Emperor William, at Ems, lies a momentous epoch Inmodem history."
