The Disruption at Chwrlcwten.
We purposely refrain, this morning, from any extend
; ed n marks on th.- extraordinary, but hardly unexpect
■ flU ed result at Charleston. We desire to see. first, the full
* n tent of the seceding movemeut, and the ensuing ac
t turn of those who take pirt in it. It L« not easy, at pre

* , tiou itid fins! end of the Democratic party—certainly,
I it has an “awful .squinting” that wav—but there is no dif
li -ultv in determining that, at least for the opening Pre
sidential canvass, the Democratic party is out of the
* tight. Exceedingly faint and tar-off was any chance of
mctcwi they had be fore, but now there dosut remain
the shadow of a ghost of a chance. Thus much, we sup
pose, they would themselves, concede. In a dav or two,
we shall have such fuller information as will enable us to
s|s-ak more advisedly of the bearing and consequences
ot this most important erent.

Of course the disruption of the Democracy at Cbarles
toii will be hailed with rejok-ing by the follow era of Sew
ard m tin- North. In lh« shortness of their sight and
ihi >h allow u«*< ui th«. L: thought, they will conclude Uiat
tlie 10.11 to vie ory now lies opea and easy to them; and
that t ere b KUcdy a peradventure between them and
the re dilation of all their dr< ..ma of power and plunder, j
Men of more wisdom would see in the developments at
Charleston other indications and prophecies. There is
something more in the disruption of that Cinvention than
the abandonment of a rtesidciuhtl contest, or the ordin
ary dissolution of a party. There is something that re
fers to the very existence of the Union—to the very pre
servation of the country from fratricidal strife! H the
Democratic party, with its its practised and proverbial
facility a- compromising differences—and with the tre
mendous compression from without of nearly a hundred
l.t Uions a year—cannot be held together, is it probable
that Sechins of the Uuion, wiith repellant feelings and
eot.fl cting int re ts, can be held together* If Southern
Democrat- will no submit to the asoenJancy of North
j era Democrats, with whom they hold niauv kindred seu
I limenls and cherish many common traditions, will they
subnet to the rule of a party repugnant to them in every
j sentiment, and hostile to them in every interest? These
| are questions tor the Black Republicans to consider amid
I th- ir rejoicings. We advise them to reflect whether the
I spirit manifested by the representatives of Southern De
mocracy, at Charleston, is one that promises a tame sub
mission to a sectional triumph !
Mr Transit.
The Democracy have assumed to be the only party who
oku settle the disorders of the country—and yet,atCharles
I ton th* v are unable to settle their own di-orders ! They
| have profi-s d to be able to save the Confederacy from
1 dissolution—but their Convention has been unable to pre
serve itself from disruption ! The country will need no
other evidence that Democracy cannot accomplish w hat
it proiui- s. The physician in the agonies of dissolu
i t.ou will not be called on to minister to the ailments of
I others. Tiie fate deplored by the Apostle has befallen
the Democracy—while striving for the salvation of the
country C) th»y have themselves become castaways.
The Slave Trade.
The Charleston Aftrewru, alluding to the decision of
Judge Megrath in the Corriecase, says: “Judge M.igrath
h\s ably argued his position, aiil has presented the Act of

into this country, who were not free in Africa, is an of

1 Africa, the presumption being the contrary, the act is
I pretty much a deid letter."

id::e-s and error, crimes v It is true. Senator Sew ud
pi: s them; but should he not pardon them? Hr at
. i-t, if uoue e >*• ?—since their madness and error most
probably sprung from his own teaehii gs. Their ‘unfor
tunate’ invasion and massacre occurred in their attempt
to accomplish hi-predictions, by inaugurating the u»
government of Virginia uuder the auspices of President
Chapman, Vice Presideut Monroe, the free negro, mid
lieu. Johu Browu commander-in-chief,preparatory to the
lull occupation of the promis 'd laud ol the South—de
di< tted by the prophecy to tree labor.
But it seems they were too impatient for the flesh pots
of Egypt. They should have waited until “the great na
tional i-«ue between free labor and capital labor—f r the
r -.riei” (a uew name and interpretation of the irre
pr - i de conflict) should be conducted "to its proper so
lution through the trials hy ballot.” The insinuation
that the gteat issue was to be coutined to a struggle for
the Territories, or to be decided by ballots, is palpably
an "> fain. Tue Rochester oration definitely pro
phesied a conflict betweu free labor ou tlie one hand, for
the cotton aud rice fields of South Carolina aud the sugar
plantations of Louisiana, and slave labor on the other,
for the r y e fields and wheat fields of Massachusetts; (wh: cb,
by the way, slave labor ran away from years ago, and
would not again accept as & free gift;)—a conflict never
to end until the Tinted States should become “entirely a
-iave-hoMiug nation, or entirely a free labor nation," and
"< har ■iand .V, *• t trie anx marts for legitimate mer
c iandue," or Hot ton and Xt York, "lor the bodies aud
so of nieu; an issue which, if llie North will force up
on the South, can never be conducted to a final solution
but 1" open war:—“war to the knife, and the knife to the
hilt . " and so General Brown interpreted the Rochester or
rocle. He never dreamed of a ceaseless contest for the
I'.rritorn* on/,, or of mere "political action by suH’rage."
He took the propheev accordiug to its literal aud true
u *aning—and resorted to the onh means adapted to its
futfi. ne: t: good rifles, bowie kmves, leaden bullets front
the cartridge-box: not paper pellets from the ballot-box.
Had he known the issue was thus to be solved, he might
have saved his ne k from the gallows, and his soul from
the .-tain of blood. The solutiou was at hand, to be as
,e taiued at any raomeut by a show of hands. Rye and
wheat out vote sugar an 1 rice and king cotton altogether,
by large majori: es in the House of Representatives and
in the Senate—aud, by a growing popular majority, al
ready, 1 fear, of two to one.
But this pretence of seitliag the conflict by “appealing
to the reason and judgement of the people, to be pro
nounced by suffrage" was an alter thought, as prepos
terous as it is novel. Not a vote would begiveu on this
side of Masou and Dixon, to fasten slavery in the North
era States ; and the unanimous vote of the North could
never extirpate it in the South, without the rifles of the
Emigrant aid Society of Maseachussetta, and the pikes
ot Connecticut. At all events, it comes too late for
John lirown and his associates ’
The blame ea-l on these martyred Republicans for
u-i g the only means suited to the etiJ, looking to t le
■ itarter from whence it comes, is ungrateful and cruel.—
• ■ t it uot the only wrong duue by Senator Seward lo
hi v dead votaries. Soil worse is the complaint he makes,
oi tin- charge against the Republicans not merely of
complicity but ot “sympathy with the ofleuders.’’ Let
hnu fettle tha* with his brother of Iowa, who boldly
atb in* on behalf of many of the Northern people no
sympathy only but admiratiosi! No sympathy for John
Brown and his associates! ‘‘This was the mostinkind
ewt cut of all.” Surely, surely, if they were miiguided
enthusiasts , if they acted ou earnest though er.'oneous
eoaeittioH• ,■ under a belief that they were obeying “that
llghct Law whose seat is the bosom ol Hod,” and the
in unctions of the latter-day prophets ; t/thev wc:e truly
in a State of frenzy ; of "delirium which blinded their
jnlgmenti to the real nature of their criminal enter
prise no “generous or charitable nature,” leash of all,
their anti-slavery teachers and allies, should withhold
their sympathy. Both Hod and man would pity snd for
give them.
Whv, then, does Senator Seward deny sympathy with
them, speak of them as criininal.aud their deaths as just
atd nee try ? For the same reason that he shrinks
from naming the Irrepressible Conflict and the Higher
Lnw. For ttie same reason that he professes good faith
to the Constitution, devotion to the Union, and ardent
affections for the South. The Presidential election is
fast approaching. That is the key to every seutimrnl
ai d subtiltv in his artful defence; which throws far in
the shade the famed oration of Antony over tie dead
body of Ciesar.
With an eye to the anticipated success of his party,
and doubtless his own elevation, he notices the threats
of the South to dissolve the Union, in that event: gently
insinuates the superior strength of the Northern Repub
licans, and would cajole us into the belief that our desti
nies could be in no safer bands. I will gather i Ho one
cluster a few of the choicest Mowers of this loving oration,
that you may feast upon its concentrated sweets.
Speaking of the Republiean party he says,
“It la already proved to be a majority In the North; It la there
fore practically the people of the North Will It atill not he the
MUM North which Ilia/'.'. .. <- anil con-nteet to

Again—“Differences of opinion, even on the subject of alavery,
with ua are political, not aocUl or personal differences. There Is
not one dlauulonlat or disloyalist among us."
“Wc have ncr been more patient, and Ii I' 2 th ' Representatives

Once more—for there is something fascinating in pro
protestations of love and kindness, even when you may
i.ot feel altogether assured of their sincerity.

NORITY Report—the southern delegates
Charleston, April Sftth.—The Convention met at 1ft
o'clock, pursuant to adjournment. After prayer had
been offered the President addressed the Convention,
apologizing for the liar.-h language he had made use of
during the disorder on Saturday evening. He, however,
considered it to be his duty to speak plainly and posi
The President then announced the first business to be
h * calling the vote on the main question, which was ou
th • substitute offered by Mr. Butler, iu behalf of Ma-sa
chusett', Minne-oia, Iudiana, aud New Jtisev, presenting
th • Cincinnati platform, with a resolution lor the protec
tion of citizens of foreign birth.
The vote being taken, the Butler platform was re
jected by nearly a two-third vote—yens lft.r>, nays 198.
When New Jersey was called a delegate stated that
the Convention of that State, in appointing the delegates,
recommended them to vote ms a ui.it.
The Presideut decided that the word recommended
was equivalent to au instruction.
This decision of the chair was appealed from.
A motion was made to lay the appeal upou the table,
which was lost—ayes 150, nays 100.
The question then recurred on the appeal, and a vote
by States was demanded, which resulted in ayes 145, thus
reversing the decisiou.
This result is a gain of two votes for Douglas in New
Jersey, aud Georgia will also claim its right to vote by
[second dispatch.]
Charleston, April :;ft.—After nearly an hour spent
in discussing points of order aud various parliamentary
movements to prevent reaching the main poiut.
Mr. Butler, of Mass., moved to lay the whole subject
on the table, and proceed to vote for a candidate for
President, (Cries of “Agreed!" “No!" “No!" etc.)
Mr. Winlhrop, of Ala., contended that the motion of
Mr. Butler was out of order. That the vole ou the plat
form must now lie Liken.
Mr. Clarke, of Mo., was unwilling fo reach a result by
subterfuge that we cannot reach by plain dealing.
Mr. Gittings, of Md., attempted to address the chair,
but was called to order.
Mr. Butler withdrew his motion to lay ou the tuble the

Mr. Uooper arose. He did not intend suything dia
respectful to the gentleman From Maryland, but my
name is Turn Hooper, oi Alabama.
Mr. Gitliuip.—If no insult was intended, the gentleman
will call at i jy room and take a drink.
The question was then at length taken on the adop
tion of the n iuoritv report as a substitute for the major
ity report of the platform committee, and it was adopt
ed-ayes 16!», nays 188.
Mr. Flournoy asked permission to make a personal ex
planation, ihclariug himself for FFouglas, and as unwil
ling to obey the instructions of his State Convention to
leave the convention in case the minority report was
The question then recurred on the adoption of the
platform as amended.
Mr. Ashe, of North Carolina, said if these minority re
solutions arc adopted lie would be compelled to abandon
the convention and disconnect himself from the demo
cratic party. [Cheers from the Southern members.)
Mr. Saulsbury, of Delaware, contended that the pre
amble to the minority resolutions controverts the Cincin
nati platforn . [Cries of “ order," gentlemen talking at
the top of tl.elr voice until each was drowned in an up
roar. J
Mr. Bullet demanded that the question be first taken
on the first part of the resolution affirming the Cincinnati
platform, separately; adopted—yeas 288, nays 70.
When Mississippi was called, Mr. Glenn arose and vot
ed “ No,” d tolaring that Mississippi believed the Cincin
nati platiorm as explained North and South to be an un
qualified swindle. [His voice was drowned in cries of
The next half hour up to 1 o'clock was spent in dis
cussing the right of the Georgia delegation to vote by
The president having repeated his decision that the
word “ request” in the case of Georgia is equivalent to
a provision jr intimation to vote as a unit, Mr. Seward
appealed frt-m the decision, and whilst the vote was be
ing taken ho withdrew the appeal.
Mr. Briggs, of N. Y., now that the Cincinnati platform
was adopted, he would move that all the balance of the
resolutions >e laid ou the table.
Mr. Gittit.gs, of Md., rose to know whether he had
been ruled'»nt of order simply because he came from a
slave State. [Cries of “order" and great confusion.)
The Chai • stated that he bad not, to his knowledge,
called the gentleman to order except when he was clear
ly out of order.
Mr. Gittiugs replied—Perhaps so, and then added that
lie had not hud the houor of meetiug the president bp
fore since 1849, when lie made the most violent Whig
speech he had ever heard. [Cries of “order.”)
Mr. Stewart raised the poiut of order that the motion
to lay on tie table would carry the whole subject with it. ,
The pref ideut decided that it would not carry to the
table the Cincinnati platform just adopted.
Mr. Gittiugs rose to a personal explanation. He did
not mean xny insult or offense to the Chair by the remark,
that he had first seen him at a Whig meeting, making a
Whig spexch. He honored such men. He honored any
man who dared to be a Democrat in Massachusetts.
Mr. Yancey, of Alabama,said the motion to lay the bal
ance of tl e minority report ou the table is out of order,
us it is equivuleut to a motion to strike out all but the
first resolution, which would be clearly out of order.
The president decided that the motion to lay ou the
table wus in order.
After the vote had been announced the Alabama, Mis
si-sippi in d Florida delegates desired to withdraw their
votes, and Arkunsas withdrew three of its votes, all re
fusing to vote ou the subject.
The result was then announced. Ayes 81; noes 188 ;

Mr. Duller proposed that the balance of the platform
be \otel upon without a division.

The lesolution was adopted unanimously.

Mr. Stewart, of Michigan, obtained the floor ou the

by the South.
Mr. Yancey replied at some I* nglh,declaring that Con
gress lias the pow. r to protect the property of slave
holdere against the encroachments of territorial legisla
tion, wherever it may occur.
Mr. Stuart, when he had concluded, moved to lay the

Mr. Walker, chairman of the Alabama delegation, who
rose and announced that lie had a communication from
that delegation to make to the convention, lie then
proceeded to read a statement and protest, giving their
reason for withdrawing from the convention. He also
read a resolution declaring that in casenhe delegates of
Alabama should withdraw, ns adopted by the convention
of that State, no other person ahould represent that State
in thii convention.
Thi; Alabama delegation now rose to depart, and as
they lid so,
Mr Berrv, of Mississippi, rose nnd stated that the del
egation of that State authorized him to state that the
delegation also would withdraw from the couveution
with Alabama.
Mr. Win. Mouton, of [.ouieiana, announced that ha
was t uthorized to state, on the part of the delegation
from his State that they uo longer retained their sents in
thi- convention. We have heretofore declared the Dem

He concluded by stating that two of the delegates de
clined to join the majority, but that the majority cc uteud,
as they are instructed to vote as a unit, no one bus pow
er to east the vote of the Stale after they leave.
Geaeral Simmons, chairman of the South Carolina del
egutian, read in behalf of that delegation, a paper pro
testing that, as the platform adopted is in contravention
of the principles of the State convention, therefore the

Mr. lliltou, of Florida, in behall of that delegation,

stiffened thek necks, they parted with them with hut lit
tle regret. He read a long protest signed by the whole
delegation, and refusing to allow any others to cast the
vote of the State.
Mr. Bryan, of Texas, said he had long looked to this
result* Alter a few further remarks he presented the
protest of the Texas delegation, declaring that a persis
tence in the principles maintained bv a majority of this
Convention will ultimately dissolve the Union.
Mr Burrows, of Arkansas, on behalf of the delegation
of Unit State, entered a protest, setting forth that they
cannot consent to place a sound man on an unsound
platform, aud expressing the opinion that the chief of
squatter sovereignty should receive the nomination. The
proteit was signed by three of the delegation, who pro
test t nit no one else shall east the vote of the State.
The Georgia delegation asked leave to retire aud con
sult on the question presented to them.
Mr. Gittiugs, of Maryland, again kicked up another ex
citement on the fioor, to make a personal explanation,
but was ordered by the President to take his seat.
Mr. Merrick, of Illinois, addressed the Convention, as
serting that the chairmen of some of these delegations
were withdrawing their States without consulting some of
their delegations, nnd he proposed an adjournment to
enable them to properly consult.
At .he request of Mr. Russell, of Va., Mr. Merrick tem

as Vice-President.
There is considerable f *eling against the three South
Carolina delegates who refused to secede.
North Carolina stands firm, so also Maryland. Vir
ginia and Georgia are discussing the subject, aud a part
of their delegations have concluded to withdraw. The
Kentucky delegation are also consulting as to what course
they will take.
Douglas will no doubt he nominated to-morrow on the
first ballot. There will he some dilHcultv in obtaining
a Southern candidate for Vice-President.
TMI It I \ -SI Y I II CONUItESH—FIrit Session.
Wahuinotoh, April 30, 1860.
Several memorials and petitions were presented.
Mr. Doolittle moved to take up the House hill for the
relief of Ausoii Dart; which was uot agreed to.
Some discussion ensued Its to whether thcSeuate should
consider the Indian appropriation bill aud its amend
ments, nr adjourn until Wednesday.
Mr. Johuson, of Arkansas, moved that the Senate
adjourn until that day,which was agreed to, just a quorum
And the Senate adjourned.
Mr. nation moved that the Hoine resolve itself into
a Committee of the Whole for the purpose of discussing
the tariff bill.
Mr. Crawford asked if it was the intention of the
House to have a vote upon the question after the com
mittee rose ?
Mr. Curtis said lie did not think the Republican side
of the House would attempt to take any such advantage.
Mr. Hatton's motiou was acceded to.
Mr. Moore, of Alabama, obtained the door, and pro
ceeded to uddress the committee, opposing the bill, and
entering his solemn protest against its passage.
He said the measure affected every nation with whom
the American government had intercourse; aud he as
serted that the higher the duty upon articles, the less
revenue would accrue to the government.
Mr. Alley, of Massachusetts, explained the position
and purposes of the republican party, and reviewed the
action of the democratic party as being destructive of
commercial, agricultural and manufacturing interests of
the country, ns well as subversive of great political
rights. He instituted comparisons of statistics between
the resources and producuous of the free and slave
States, and treated the threatened non-intercourse and
dissolution of the Union as imaginary.
Mr. Wade, of Ohio, in the course of his remarks, justi
fied his endorsement of the Helper book, but condemned
its harsh expressions. Ho never advocated or counte
nanced the violent overthrew of slavery. On this sub
ject he went no step in advance of Jefferson and other
southern slaveholders. The northern democrats agitated
this question, but it was a lie, a falsehood of the most
malignant character, for them to say that the Republicans
want to overthrow southern institutions.
After Mr. Wade had concluded the comuiittc rose and
the House adjourned.
CttAHi.KSTON, Saturday, April 28.—The outsiders are
quarrelsome. There were turee tights yesterday, aud
will probably bo two duels in consequence.
Two members of the Ohio delegation had a fight at the
Mills House, atid threw plates at each oilier, (lue then
drew a pistol, when the other clinched him. Their
friends separated them.
Col. Osig, ol Missouri, and Lmgmoro, of the St. I.ouis
Republican, also had a rough and tumble tight at the
Mills House, which is to be se ttled by a duel on their re
turn home.

Gentlemen—I, first made use of the OxyoxsiTKi. Birrana some
seven or eight y ears since. Having suffered for twenty years from
Dyspepsia, whi'h was attended with a nervous headache, on an
average of not. less than one day In a week, I was Induced by the
unpretending recommendation of Dr. Green "to try one Dottle and
if m benefit w:U received to discontinue the use.”
The use of otse bottle warranted a further trial, to the extent of
some three nr Sour, with a careful observance of the accompany
ing directions The result was an almost entire relief from the
usual dyspeptic symptom* and tlielc depressing, painful conse
quences. 1 bitlieve these Ifitters piodueed an entire change In th*
habit* of my system snd upon the ao Ive energies of the digestive
organs. I now deem myself as exempt from Dyspepsia as most

Under this caption, the editor of the Virginia Farm
Journo/, la the last Issue of Ihst paper, presents the following
views, in which we concur to some extent :
It Is not our nature to Indulge la gloomy apprehensions of the
future— belie flog, however, that our facilities for judging of ‘the
iigns of the times,” places us In a condition to form some correct
conclusions .is to the future we deem U a duty we owe to our read
ers, to give them our opinion and the facts and Information upon
which that opinion is based. Observation, together with penonai
Intercouse with many farmers in different po tions of the State, and
iufiimstlrn gathered from local country papers, leaves no douot
upon our mind that we are approaching a season of g eat scarcity,
not only in Virginia, but throughout the country. Xrom Texas to
Maine corn Is in demand at extremely big-1 prices, the wheat crop
exhausted, and Hour pas»i .g rapidly from the seller to tha consum
er, promising an open market for the growing crop. Whilst these
are facts of prominent significance, the growing cr*p of wheat 1*
by universal consent admitted to or the m-'st unpromising for yean,
the winter be rig unfavorable, much of the wheat was winter-killed
—thelate cold dry spring h • retarded Its gTowth to such an citent
that In many places planters despairing of a crop, hav* plowed up
their wheat fields for torn. In the Talley region of thts^tatc alone
we have favorable reports of the appetrance of tht crop With
regard to the coru c^op, although It Is rather soon to conjecture
what a day may bring forth, yet the lateness of the spring delay
!ng the planting of the corn crop beyond the usual time, great
danger is apprel.en led In many localities from an early frost The
crop last year being a light one, a deficiency this season must be
serluut y felt In the p >rk inarke*. by materially reducing the sup
ply of fat hogs, and consequently enhancing the price o# pork.—
Whether Ills high prices we apprehend are to inure to the benefit of
the farmers, Is a question that time and circumstances alone cm
determine. It I* predicted with great certainty that the supply of
