The (ttBtniUoD re Assembled this morning At M o'clock, the President. Frof. ?? D. Gross In the chair. And Prof. N. S. Davis, secretary. New credentials were presented as follow*: Kan*** City Medical t ollxge, Prof. John M. Forrest. Frof. A- F. Lankford; Missouri Mrdltal College, Prof. A. Hammer. University Of Nash ville. Prof. W. K. Bowling And W. F. Briggs. Prof. N- S. Davis offered several rules for governing the proceedings, which were Adopted. A telegram was read from I)r*. Parvin and Murphy dated At Grafton, Vn., Announcing thAt by reason of tailroAds not connecting they were not able to be present At the opening of the con vent ion. Dr. Deris offered a resolution that the several propositions Adopted by the convention At Cin cinnati in 18C7, be taken up sepnrAtely In the order they stand in the printed report; adopted. The first proposition was taken up. It is as fellow* ??1st. ThAt evervstndent Applying for saAtri culatior. in a Medical CollegeshAll be required to shew, either by satisfactory certificate, or by direct sxarnlTAtlon by a committee of the fAcul tv, thAt he possesses a knowledge of the common Cnrllsh branches of education. Including the Ini series or mathematics, the elements of the natural sciences, and a sufficient knowledge of Latin and Greek to understand the technical terms of the profession; And thAt the certiflcAte presented, or the result of the examination thus required, be regalarly tiled as a part of the records af each Medical College." Prof. Logan offered an amendatory reeolution that the recommendations to the different tac nlties of the Medical Colleges are not binding ?atil ratified by the several Institution. After aome discnmlon the resolution was lost. Frof. Meore, of ?t Louis, ma Ted to strike out ail after the words common eiteration. He said that in institutions not rejdeoented here the recommendations would be impoiMible and ho thought the tendency in the Western Institu tions would be to close them up. We exclude aaen from our college* simply de cause they were no clAssicnl scholars. This was wrong, In mnny instances our best physicians are without ? classical education. Frof. Tandell.of Kentucky, aaked: "In ease we adopt the resolution as it is, does it educate tke medlcAl students?" He thought It would bave no practical effect. Yon cannot require medical students to have a knowledge which students of other professions are required to attain before going into practice, while he monld like to see the medical profemlon Attain the highest standard of learning, yet they can ?* require this standard. People will send for Ike doctor thev want, without reference to his latin or Greek knowledge, so thnt he is a senei Me And Judicious man. And possessee the confi dence of the public. These educational attain ments were impracticable in this country. He did not think tnat success was the test of merit, eepeeiAllv in the profession of medicine. A better system of primary education shonld be encouraged, but he opposed this slaudArd of requirements. Frof. Hammer, in reply to Prof. Yandell, said he was sorry to hear such Arguments advanced. He did not think any man, however possessed Of good sense, could become a truly scientific man without a knowledge of the Latin And other dend languages. He wished to enter his pi otest Mainst such a standard as waa recommended by tne Professor. Dr. Yandell said we hAve to tAke the world as It is. It is not expected that all doctors Are to he teAcher*. Prof. DatIs offered a resolution that no mem ber be allowed to speak more than once upon the same subject until all others hAve spoken lrho desire to; adopted. Prof Hammer moved an amendment to the amerdment ottered by l>r. Moon, to the effect thAt the words relating to Latin And Greek languages be stricken out, and All else re tained. Prof. Davis opiosed the Amendment offered to the originAl proposition, And advocated all the requirements usual as a preparatory test to entering ujon the study of medicine. By wait ing for the common tide of advancement iu knowledge the medical profeaaion might go backward instead of forward. Kverv man worth having in the proiV-wion will come up to the required standard. if it is a well-established And arbitrary rule of the medical institutions of the ennntrr. A line of demarcation should be drawn'between those worthy and thearmvot Cirasltes who were banging on the profession. e advocated the amendment offered by l>r. Hammer, and hoped it would be adopted.' Prof. Moore said the gentleman's ideas of medical education are very beautiful, but it would not arply to the physicians In the West, where the medical tacultv had to labor physic ally about as hard as tbe farmer* do. Dr. K. Ke> burn said he was surprised to hear thAt a different .-tan-lard was required in the Western country than was required in the Ka?t. He thought the requirement* should be as uni form as possible. A higher grade of education should be insisted upon. And it should be made uniform. Prof. Loeniis sai?' in regard to the Greek lan guage, he did not think it so necessary as the Latin, in the scientific world, the Latin was tne prevailing language used. He would favor striking out the Greek And retain the Latin. Some standard should be agreed u[>on. Prof. Cox was opposed to tha amendment to the amendment. He thought they were dis cussing what formed the corner-stone of the medical profession. We are flooded with Ch.-ir lntamsm in the profession in consequence of I2?e love manner ul which our medical lnstitu tions Are conducted. Prof. Yaudel said the Anglo-Saxon character could not be cbAnged nor driven into terms pre scribed by this convention. And tbe resolution adopted by this convention would go unheeded by the medical colleges. After further debute, bv Dm. YAndell and Davis, Prof. Stilli, of Philadelphia, made re maiks in opposition to changing the langUAge of the originAl reeolution. He was surprised thnt they were discussing resolutions pAssod by the convention two years Ago. it they were la reaffirm them, why discuss tbem now. They most endorse the resolutions or stnltlfv them selves. He thenofferedresolntionsaaasnbstitute, Which, after a protracted debate, were rejected. The Amendment to the Amendment was tvith datn, and the question recurred on Ae origi nal resolution, which was debated At lengtn. men a vote was taken on reconsidering the Tote by which Prof. Stilli's substitute was lost, and carried. A motion was made to Adopt the substitute, when debAte AgAin occurred. ? Prof. Davis advocated the Adoption of the substitute, saying thAt he promised if the schools ot Boston, New York And Philadelphia would adept the recommendations and put them into operation, that the whole West would follow snit at once. [Great applause.} The substitute of Prot. SUlUe was thea adopt ed as a substitute for all the propositions before the Convention. It ts to the effect <- that the proposition adopted in lsC7 by the convention or delegates from medical colleges, embodying a system of collegiate medical education la the highest degree commendable, and which, if they could be generally carried into effect, would tend to elevate the medical profession, that the require ments for the degree of Doctor of Medicine must be practically determined by each med ical college for itself, by the averAge attain "??

In aiwer toTgoeetion he said that the call ex cluded the Reformers? those who meet at Wili s Hall. Take Kinney (who is president) and a man whom Freeman had moved to expel, with Tom Lewis and Hewitt, for instance. It excludes all who have not acted with the Re publican party to tlits ttme. It excluded every Democrat or shamocrat, but let In all Irishman who openly came into the partv?those who can prove their faith by their works. There would be no difficulty in determining who were en titled to vote If they had good challenger* and tellers, but the danger was not In the opposi tion, but in the party. If the strifes and -" ~ heated, the " - bickerings are not healed, the old old cltixens?old Know Nothings?with their chalk marks will whip the party. Mr. Cook here read that instinctive production "TheT wo Little Kittens," which shows the sad fhte which bs'als eats <or mea) wfco needlessly quarrel, and said they should take a lesson by it. The fight was between the tM and oats, and they should tea that the party is united or they would meet with defeat. . Mr. Connolly urged that the party should be united, and ur^ed that all should do as he in tended to do in regard to the oonrention, sub mit to the will of the majority. He introduced a preamble that the Republican party of Wash ington is based upon the principles of liberty and equal rights; that theae principles are so full*Illustrated In the fifteenth amendment to the Ovnatttnllow efthaVnited States that a full, cordial and steadfast advocacy of this amend ment and of all its logical sequences Is a suf ficient test of Republicanism; and the main tenance ot these principles and not the advance ment or the Interests ot any man or combination ot men is the great matter at issue In the pend ing contest, followed by resolutions? 1st. That all leeal voters ia th* etty of Washing ton who avow themselves Republicans in accordance with the foregoing Interpretation shall be held en titled to fellowship in the Republican party of W ash invton. 2>l. That the selection of a candidate for Mayor of this city shall be made by a majority of delegates from the several warils assembled in joint csDTention. 3d. That opposition to the will of the majority thus expressed shall be regardsd as treach ery. 4th. That any man elected to the oftiee of Mayor of Washington, who shall in that office make distinctions ia the great l>ody of the Repnblican party, to the prejudice of Republicans whose origi nal preferencsa shall have been for another candi date than him** If, Shall be regarded as hav inn there by forfeited all title to the respect and snsp.rt of the party. and of every branch, section, or division thereof. Ms. That nothing hwein affirmed is to be uud?-rstn.?d as implyiag a parpoesto proscribe any portion of our fellow citfu-ns, nor opposition to t!,.-m beyond the limits and degrss enjoined by a prudent regard for the maintenance yf the rights of man of human progress, end of ths stability of this republic ss a nniteosnd mighty nationality . Mr. C. said If the party lought on this line they would win, but veer one point from it they would lose. . . Mr. Cook suggestsd that the first resolution be amended so as to read, "who avow themselves and whose actions have been in harmony with their avowal;" which was accepted by Mr. Con nolly. Mr. Freeman said he understood that the Emery men would crowd the ranks of the Re publican party for the purpose of insuring the success of Mr. Emery, and he waa opposed to any man voting for delegates who did not intend to support the nominee. There were a large number ot loud-mouthed men in the party who never voted the ticket, and they should be ruled out. A voice.?"If a man is once a sinner, is he alwavs a sinner ?" Mr. Freeman answered that a man should show works of faith and serve out his pro bation. The resolutions were then adopted. Mr. S. R. Bond said that the great mass of Republicans do aot attend the club meetings, and that they be invited to attend the mass meeting on Wednesdav, and that when this meeting adjourns it be to Wednesday next at 2 o'clock p. m. Mr. Boston suggested that the meeting be called tor 10 o'clock a. m. Mr. Cook said that would be irregular. The motion of Mr. Bond was carried. Mr. Cook said that iu some way it has got out that the registration this year is not as favorable to the party as last year. This was a mistake. In this ward it was as favorable. (Mr. Beall.? "Yes, better," and voices. "Good; good."I If they held together thev would win. Now. would'nt you like to know something of the chalk marks'.' They come from the Know Noth ing Council. I got their secrets, and got them for the beneli* of the party, and will give them to you without price. You go to the door and give two raps, and a fellow inside will say. "Who comes here?" to which you answer, "! am one,"' and yeu are admitted. You then give three raps at" the i^ecoiid door, and the same question is asked. to *n"*r,r, am ? neof them." Then vou arc with the fellows on tli* inside. The way they initiate is this. You get down on|your left knee thus (Illustrating.) place your right hand on your heart, and raise \our left, (suiting the action to the word,) and then vou take an obligation that you are op j>o??-d to foreigners tor office, and to the present incumbent of the Mayor's office. Mr. Cook here compared those in the organization to the cop perhead snake. In the Seventh Ward, which is their stronghold, they had 400, but he was glad to aav that in the Third' Waid thev had not made much headway. Their chief is George Wilson. ! A voice.?" I think you have made a mistake ain't Fierce the head of it?"] No; I have traced the organization thoroughly. In the First Ward they I:are George Kelly, Higgles, Harrison. McGlue, (the young man,) White, Taylor, and Bowie?not Tom. in the Second Ward, the Wallace family?John, Jtilins, and Charles Charley Stewart, Henry Baker, Moselv Jack son, Arthur Chase, and Sonnv James. For the Third Ward men thev should not ask him to night. In the Fourth there were Jacob Cross man, Crane, [laughter,] Hhtton, [laughter,) and Scott. In the Fink, Samuel Williams. In the Serenth. Henry Knight, Kelly, and Dr. Clay ton. (the latter an old enemy of the Republican party.) Mr. Beaton?" 1 hope that Mr. Cook will give us the names of those in it from the Third Ward." Mr. Cook declined, he said, because he under stood that many men were coming out ot it, and he had promised not to make the disclosure at this time. He would give them a few days to repent and wonld give them a little of their fatted calf, but would not trust them. He would sit them in a corner until they could show their faith bv their works. Sinners may be con verted. but without works they never amounted to much. In conclusion, be urged that they be faithful to the old flag and not led estray anil they would be sure to win. - ? Bovrxw Mass Mkktixo i* thi Ssvbxtii Ward.?The Floneer Club of the Serenth Ward met last night on 4u street and Maine avenue; Ferrv Carson presiding and Geo. D. Graham secretary, bat without transacting any business of interest, adjourned and resolved itself into a mass meeting, and speakers of all opinions were invited to address them. Ferry Carson was elected chairman of the mass meeting. Henry O. Johnson (Depaty Market Master) said that if Mr. Emery wee elected, colored men would not be allowed to go oat after?o'clock. Arthur Panne 11 offered a resolution Indorsing Mayor Bowen, and pledged the support of tke colored people to him; adopted. Jo. Williams, Fresi deaaef the Ooesnson Council, and Patrick Cul linane made syssshss Major W. 8. Morse also made a few feeble remarks. Mr. Graham then offered resolutions, which were adopted, that the continuance of the present Republican rule is essential to the maintenance of law, order and prosperity, and that they hare the utmost con fidence in the honesty of S. J. Bowen, our present Mayor, and that they, as Republicans, heartily pledge thsmeelres to aid *n his re election.

RcTtatk W?rd ?? Reform Bfyakll M. 0. Entry far Mayor?Sko*U the Pay of City Cornncilmrn *e Cat Doum T A meeting of the Seventh Ward Republican ltefbrm Association was held last night at Island Hall, the president, L. O. Hlnc, in the chair, and George Holme* secretary. The house *ai ?ell tilled, and the meeting wan computed of about equal number* or white and colored men. Mr. Watson ottered resolution*: the first for a reform meeting two weeks hence to nominate candidates for the councils; the second ap proving the resolutions adopted at the Germ in mass meeting that foreigners be represented in the Citv Councils. Mr. Hine said he did not know that there was any need of being in a hurry about nominating ward representatives. He thought three week.s hence would be soon enough to name them. He wished to have a fall meeting of the dUsotti of the ward. The onlygreat object in Tie w is to break up " the City Hall ring'* and elect better men. Ir this eould bo done more effectually by postponing the nomination of ward officers to some future time they had better wait. After debate the first resolution (providing fTa"-?8 two weeks hence) ?u laid on the table. Mr. Donovan moved that the word foreigner be stricatnout of the second resolution, and the words " naturalized citisen" be inserted agreed to, and the resolution was then Mr. Carter offered the following: W h*,raM the Abject of the Heform movement is ee ??economical reforaa in the guverum<-nt of onr citv; therefore. Asiofoerf, That the reformers of the geventh Wart Wilt support onll such men to repreeeut u? in the Council!it hat wiP rots t? repeal the law paseed by a late hoard and *i*ned by the present extravagant and comipt Mayor, increasinc the pay of the City (oanHlsfrotn no to fstw per year, or abont ?12 per night; that this is absolutely necessary to fur ther measures of e*ooi*ny, as it wonld be in bad taste for the OomtuU to consider further measures of financial reform while receiving such extravagant pay thrmaelvrs. Hffolrit That randMates nominated by the Re form part)' of this ward be required to pledge them selves to bring the ijite-ition up at their eaiiieat i on venienee, and urge it nntii the object of these resoiu tions ia acoompliHhed. Mr. Watson thought they should be amended to cover all the corporation offices which had been increased. Mr. Carter thought they could obtain better men to till the positions of Coancilmen and Al dermen by not paying them anything. Mr. Jones said that In the State of Maryland, up to lr50, the Delegates to the Legislature ha l never been paid but W per day for time actually employed, yet we in this city were paying about ?12 per day to men to represent us in the Coun cils and for wasting the worst kind of gas. [Great applause.] He thought this a great shame, in ?lew of the fact that oar honest laboring men *ot their pay for work done. Wo are told that Mayor Bowea was the only man in our city capable of being Mayor. He said the City Hall Is dally surrounded by loiterers, waiting lor crumbs from their master's table, and which bad attracted the attention of our Western via - tors, drawing forth Uis remark from some of them that ?' the city of Washington has more lazy men than any city In the union." This was the tault of the Mayor, who was keeping the men on great expectations for the sake oT their votes. He approved the resolutions, be cause the big rascals were getting ?12 per day aP JtS. P??r laboring men were only getting about 90 cents per day. He recollected when black men voted in his early days in the State of Maryland. Mayor Bowen did not ad mit that any one was a Republican unless he fell down and worshipped him. Mr. Watson moved an amendment, that all offices the pay of which had been increased thould be cut down to the original amount Mr. Carter opposed the amendment. The Chair said he believed in paying men well and it the officers performed their duties well that the pay now given was not too much. It was the popular beller that all the time re quisite for the discharge of the duty of city rep resentative is in going one evening a week to the Citv Hall,?but to faithfully discharge their duties it required much time in the course of every week to collect information as to such matters as require legislation. He did not think the pay of the City Councils too high. The great trouble was not in the amounts paid as salaries but In the other leaks?the swindling schemes got up by contractors and others to rob toe tax payer. Liberal pay always secured faithful service. In the past times these positions were places of honor?not profit?but ft was in the days ot aristocracy when the pay was not re St1"di ?; ?,^KW^0Ur I>oare*t n<> matter whether be held property or not, are eligible and the legislation is much larger in cone*. ?i Hence or an increase of population here. Mr. A. Watson said he had gone into this re form movement, and bad given out that thev meant reform. The city affairs had become corrupt by a systematic scheme generally or fraud. It had been proved that the more you five a man the more he will steal. [Applause.] le a*ked if the members of Congress did any more labor or were any better men since they increased their p*y to *50 per day. By increas ing the pay of our rast government clerks, do they not drink morn whi.-ky. gamble more, and visit the Division ot'tenerV [Applause.! This is a well-known fact.

This is a great abuse, and he hoped to Lear no more about the advocacy of large nay tor corjoralion officials. Robert Arudatead made some forcible re I inarka aoout the use the i>oliiician makes of ; the laboring colored men, in running into offlee ] on the negro's back and then shifting them ofl I like a raft-oft garment. He made some pretty I 'trong |K?int?, and was frequently interrupted, j but ret used to yield the floor, saying the rest ! had "talked out their conversation," and he de manded the same privilege. He said the troth | wa* very rough and unpleasant sometimes to I hear, but is a* necessary to a healthy state of ! morals in our city aftairs as strong medicine to ! a sick iran. i Fielder Carroll made a speech in defence of the much abused City Hall ring and the Ccidiloii Councils. Voice?"Do you ever see any of them going about the city on official business." Sneaker?"Yes, Dr. Boyd does." Voice ? I "Ob, yes. celling tish." [Laughter ] Mr. A. Watson made a motion to adopt the ten j minute rule in inmking tfpeeclies. Mr. Charles Anderson favored the resolution, I saying the Increase of the salaries of the Corpo ; ration officials was a great abuse. There was | plenty ot good men who would till the places of our City Councils and attend to the duties at the I old rate of pay. [Applause.) i Voice?"Carpet baggers and scalawags have put up these salaries." I Mr. Watson renewed his motion for the ton I minute rule; carried. A vote was taken on the amendment to the resolution, and it was lost. Dr. Tincker made a speech of some length in advocacy of reform, particularly in reference to the contract system which gives the prolits to one man at the expense of the laborer who should have It. He thonght with M. G. Emery as their chief, this thing would be reformed. Mr. Emery was a workingman himself and fullv understands the wants of the laborer. Dr. Clayton was loudly called lor and said he had no political axe to grind. It the citizens are in earnest in the matter of retorm and are anxious to obtain the co-operation of all, he was w illing to come up and vote this year with them, w l at has been the condition of things the last two year* ? The tax-payer was tired or this kind of abuse heaped upon him. The proposed tax this year is just twice as great as last year. With M. G. Emery the city wlil be redeemed from this thraldom of abuses. [Applause.l As to the pay of the Coancilmen the |>oorest man may now be elected, and he thought they should be well enough paid. Mr. Murdock spoke in favor of the election of M. G. Emery, and said be had not voted in this city, although he had been a resident of it eleven years, but with the present light before him he should exercise this privilege this year and vote for M. G.

I The imp-ovement in the general market for domestic cotton fabrics has been Ten* m irked; but rather in activity that haa prevailed an i in the amount of goods sold than in any cfcan/* ot ? notations. Prices have remained \trj steady, n brown sheetings and skirting* titerj has been an active business during the week, and salts continue on a liberal scale, though mostly in small lots. Standard sheetings of popular makes as well as the lighter fabrics are held at talr prices. No important changes have been made in quotations. In bleached shirtings and sheetings there is a rather better demand and freer purchases. Some of the more popular makes, medium grades, are growing scarce in the hands of the manufacturers' agents. Prints of good styles continue in fair demand, and the more desirable styles have sold freelv at steady prices. Ginghams are selling steadily at un changed quotations for the favorite make*, but low grades are a trifle easier. Printed lawns and percales have not been In as good demand aa might be expected at this season; bnt the sales are fair and prices are steadily maintain ed. As the season advances a better demand is anticipated. Corset jeans are selling rather better for the favorite makes, but the poorer qualities are in small demand and lower in price. Rolled jaconets are comparatively quiet; sales are small but prioes are steady. Cambrics are in pretty fair demand for the best qualities, and prices are firm; but low graces are dull and slow of sale. Silesias are in moderate demand for the best makes, but sales are only eflected in small quantities. Cotton osnaburgs are not selling freely and prices are merely nominal. Cotton drills are in steady demand for the home trade, with but light sales for foreign export. Woolen goods are generally dull. The demand is comparatively moderate, but prices are without any marked changes. Ia cloths the sales are mostly restricted to the better aualittes, the jobbers merely buying to keep leir assortments good and the clothing houses making but few purchases. Doeskins are in very little demand; light weights are alone salable at tbis season. Cassi meres are selling more freely, and fancy styles for early spring have been torced upon the market by the man ufacturers' agents, who do not want to carry their stocks over until next year. 8atinets are in fair demand for desirable grade, butthe sales are on a 11 mi tec scale.
