Colimiiia, December 17, 18C<>. Tlic President announced to the Convention, that, ii accordance with the invitation extended, he had tin pleasure of introducing to them the Don. J. A. Elmore a Commissioner Irorn the Stats of Alabama to Soull Carolina. Mr. Elmore came forward and was greeted with warn applause. ... He addressed the Convention at some length, saying among ether things; “In one of the memorable debates which occurred in the Senate of the United S ates, Mr. Calhoun warned tl.s North, and the whole countiv, that unless the iuceiid’ari spirit which animated the North should he stopped, ii would result in making the two pcopl.s—North and South—entirely a distinct and separate people, and that I' ey would ultimately be placed iu deadly ami hostile con'd cl. His warning, which wa< then a prophecy, b..« htroioe a fuel.** “How in ihi< i'*uc to b<* met?—the very iidiie predict* *1 by Mr. Calhoun. I nrud not ask you how. The “Old Guard1’ of Plate li’qkln, the little Stale of South Caroli na, small iu eitclit. gri at in intellect and moral power and resource*, has answered that i|tu nUoii by llie asaciii* Wage of tilts couventinil. [ Applause. | “The mode is only by thepesmnptiou.by the sovereign ty of the State, of the power which it separately il.dtga ted to the General Government under the coiistituiiou 11 the United States. The Stale of Alabama is, as I know South Carolina !-, prepared, if necessary, with arguments or aith bloody steel. “I am ounce it Lot only as my own opinion,hut bv au thority,as I may say *>v the express direction,ol theUov ertior of the State of Atahama—that Alabama wi'l cer t linly secede upon the meeting of the convention on the 7th of January. [Applause. | We are pu-pared lor this is-ue. I could not have said so a few mouths ago, but now I know our people are entirely prepared ; and I a tin on net- to you, gentlemen, lliat nut ol Iho voti-s of the delegates loiuposing our convention, we have uM|uet tioaably carried sects ion by a vole of loity majority.— [ .Applause ] "I ell. r it as the opinion of the Governor of Alabama, that it is all impoi taut that there should be no hesitating, no faltering, and no d lay on the part of thin Conven tion, representing, ns it does, the lovercignty of South Carolina. [Applause | Not only that this Convention should act promptly, but that the Urdu unce of Secession should uot be framed to take effect in future, but to take effect at ouee. |.Applause| Audi aasur* yon, gentle men, that, when jo»r body speaks, just as soon as our Convention meets, it will adopt the necea-arv lorm, and Alabama will also go out of the Union, and le prepared to stand by you side by side, iu any issue »bieh may come. [Applause ] Uotl. Cliaa. Edward Hooker, Commissioner appointed bv the Governor of Missisiippi, was then iutioduced by tlie I’residi n*, amid applause. He spoke iu a limilar tone to that ol the Commissioner from Alabama, The rcsolic ions i ff.-red by Mr. Inglis, for lhe appoint ment of a committee of 21, to whom business should be ri leried, came up. Mr. Khett thought that the matters to be considered by the Committi e should be not merely the Ordinance ol Socesio i but all the matters incident to the accom plishment ol the ends of lbs Convention. I p-opose, thir. fjre, that all o'her matters be subject to their con sideration, which they may deem expedient. It may la proper to bring out our addresses to our sister States, aud these I would refer to the Committee. It may be proper.too, to bring out an ordinance to modify our Con stitution, which recognues the existence of the United Stall 8. Mr. Barnwell suggested that all other mat era relating to the grand o! i.-ci of the Con vein ion should be referred to the Committc. He conceived that everything to be acted on by the Convention sliced 1 be first submitted to the Committee, so that the utmost regularity ami order should be observed. Mr Khett moved tc add these words lo the last resolu tion : “All other mu’leM apporUiuii g to the hn-ineaa ol the Convention." H : remarked that it «a< roni|M-tent for this comn itt e, besidi s attending lo tbe business ri • f. lied lo it, to originate business. In nuking this am mi men*, h - had an eye to this subje. l. Mr. Chevr* thought this was approaching dangerous grounds. I'p to this lime, we haw avoided am thing like discussion. To-day tin re has been exhibited such una nimity of sentiment that it unmistakably show d the dr - -ire of nil to secede at one V Sh ill we uow mar this In • loic uoanimitv of a'ini»»un« " " *. /' that if HIV other matter is refeire-l to this committee harm uv wilTbe preserved? Consider tins nutter. Wi I it not be better to give the the ccumiitteee consideration amply of the Ordinance of Secession with power to do no hiug else. Mr. MeCradv was willing that twenty-otic should be the committee’ but from < xperience he dissented from referring everything lo It. It all this is done, the 111cm r-eis will not think. He had seen i ITeCta of things like this. I impress it On you that there mu«t be life hen; uot for all other members, except of the ct umitUe, to stand here idle, enquiring what is doing ? We should do work ourselves, carve out work for the committee, and l.-t them finish, and let them go to work, but do you not stand here idle. Think of matters appertaining to the Constitution—to tbe Executive power—what is this power? We see it in the ttovernor—*e see it in Kit-sit—you see it elsewhere _I,Ut what is it ? The (iovernor needs and must have more power—shall these subjects he referred to a com mittee * The matter ol citizenship—involving all the great questions—shall this In- referred to one committee? The Judiciary and all that |iertaina to it is licit.— Sha’l the committee look to this decision? For the pre sent, in eousid' ration tf the wcariutss of members, Ac, he urged it to lie sufficient at this time to refer conside ration simply of the Ordinance ol Secession—to take up other matters when we sh«!l meet again in Charleston. Judge Withers. I am saii-tied he Committee will be a good one; but it is said it will be composed of the wi sest and fiest men here.

Mr. English had been familiar with Convi ntions, Cou vocal ions, Religious, or otherwise, sll his lie. He was a member of the Convention of “’.2, and was of this Convention to take this Stale out ol the Uuion. Of this, he was proud, and would ever be so long as life lasted.

Mr. Orr said the memb rs of the Convention were un der great obligations to their friends of the Charleston Delegation, for providing them w th so commodious a hall, tut from this pr scot i xperiment he thought it ut terly iu-possibl' for them to putsue tbe purposes which had brought them together. He thought it would he aiuch better il by any mt-aos the Convention could pto cure a small r hall, were every one could hear the mo tions going ou. lie, therefore, moved that the Charles ton D legation be requested to examine and ascertain whether it was practicable to furnish this body with a more suitable ball lor its deliberations than the one they now occupy.

It is manifest that this convention cannot at t with doe deliberation where its proceedings may be dis turbed either by applause or cet.sure.

Near the close ol'a cold day iu October, a travo’-'er dismounted fiom his jaded horse, and entered u little hosllery, or tavern, situated in the then wildest icgioj ol Pennsylvania. The stranger, who was a large, stout looking man, heavily bearded, paused before the door ri al led into ihe bar-room, nnd pieped inquisitively in ; seeing a small gioup sitting around the uld \ he walked very I isnrely toward them, introducing hiinstli iu a frank, easy style. “ A good evening, gentlemen, lo you all.” The company, who wcie earnestly engagid in esnver sine. hardly noticed bis entrance, but wlieu be spike, nicy instantly “paused aud grreien rno new comer wuii a loeirplaii 1. of surprise* ewtloslty aun anger. One ol the party, wlio bad a lost sinister and surly face thau the n's', grarely advanced lowaid him, eyeing him sharply, as tie sai d: •• Von wish lodgings, my man ?" ‘‘Certainly I do, Mr. Heg, (who at the mention of his own nsino vbibly started:) what cl-c should I stop here for? There’s my pony wants the same thing; attend to him first, aud iu the meanwhile I wdi make myself at home." So saying, the stranger, scarcely heeding the geiieral scowl which greeted lira as he said llii-*, coolly lit his cigar, and forthwith s.retched himself iu an easy pos ture in Tim Peg's favorite arm-chair, much to the aston ishment of that gentleman, who slowly moved toward the door, winking slyly to his companions as ho did so. The stranger commenced to smoke, eyeing thv com pany with a nonchalance and familiality that took them completely by surprise. “Vot yer doing here far?" growled a dark-visaged, uglv-looking scoundrel, whose pox marked face was hall obscured bv a dirty cap. He lose as lie spoke aud drew out a sharp knife. “(lh, ho!” laughed the stringer, sending up a long spiral column of smoke, and r gardmg the other with a half sneer.' “Don’t attempt to frighten nu; ain’t your name Dick Hatton I* Scarcely had he asked the question, before the whole |iailv sprang instantaneously to their feel, and confront ed him wiili the rage of tigers—and a more precious crow of cut-throats could liarlly have been lound. “Kill him! kill Inin I" was the general cry. Pistolsand bowie-knives were promiscuously drawn, and one eould see ibey longed lo lap thu blood of the unfortunate man, as they’erowded round their victim. Dick Hatton, with an ugly grin, interposed. “Stop, boys, the lellow is safe. I vant to catechise ’im afore he’s made iniuce-meat of. Come, now, who are ye?” During all the tumult occasioned by this remark, the stranger had kept his easy, lall-recuinbeni position, re gardless of the menacing group, continuing to smoke with the most astonishing coolness, and eyeing them all with a sort of saucy smiie that was absolutely pro voking. “Come, now, who arc ye?’ repeated Dick Hatton, tightening bis grasp on his bowie-knife. The Indians pressed nearer, a do-/.- n knives were raised, but still the stranger manifest! d not the slightest sytup tom of alarm. Carol* sdv divesting himself of bis beard lie proceeded in the same quiet way to displace a curling wig. In one -econd more, the gang had burst into a wild h. lloo, which seut Tim Deg rushing back. “Blow my eyes!” exclaimed be, letting his pipe fall from hks mouth, iu hia amazement. “Why, it’s Ihe Tom tit!” "Nobody el.-e,” rcplie 1 that individual, who had not CUJillgl'U inn jiuniiivii, *** cigar. “You’re bright people a of you, 'pou my word; now, Beg, see if you can trot back to thesiable, aud put my horse in better quarters than you at first intended, and hearken, lad, tell that spoony of a wife of youis to tii up something hot; I’m blasted hungry. Now then, what arc you ull gaping at me so for?" added the Tom it, sniveling the group wilb a derisive smile. “Didn't know me, when I’ve cheated you so often ? Nice fel lows I" The gang indeed looked very foolish, at the uneipect ed denouement; their weapons were once more relum ed to their hiding places, and they stood staring at their chief, scarcely l ellcvicg the r own eyes. “The devil ’iinself would lind it 'ard to tell ye." ob served Itiik, sulkily. “ Vy, Beg, as knows everybody, witL vou eye, gels taken iu; bur, Tomtit, vol’s the news?" “Never you trouble your head lor that, it will come in good time,” replied the Tomtit, draming a glass of ale, officiously placed before him. “Everything ju«t »s I ei iiecled ; the police were ou OU" track at (Jumble's, hut I tiled ’em ” With this href svnopsis of news, the Tom 11 leaned back in hi- chair, and continued to smoke iu a thoughtful, meditating manner. Iu about fifteen miuutes, Mrs. Beg, a portly, red-haired ladv, announced that supper was ready, and the gang adjourned to a small apartment in the rear pait of the building, where a rude meal was served up ; a roast pig forming the principal feature ol the cntctlainmeut, wh ch was quickly washed down with a I beral supply of whisky. “Now, then,” said the Tomtit, alter be hud satisfied Ills hunger, and was stirring the components of a second glu-sful of punch; “now, then, boys, I'm read, to ull the news. In the first place, Crib his been cribbed." “What!" ijaculatcd the gang with one voice, “Crib nabbed ?" • “Crib U cribbed, and that’s the short anti long of it," ob<-erved the Tomtit, gloomily. •'Once was the time the trade could be carried on. aud uonu of us ran the it ast bit of ti r »k ; i vrn a ’Neat’ wasn’t neeessai y ; now the thiog gets every day more dangerous, aud the pritits grow imaller.” "But what about Crib?” inquired several if the gang, amiouuly. •‘Ctib," continued the Tomtit, “acted IIIA a precious fool ; I told him all the boys had left but him, but he was ao blasted confident he kept lagging, and putting off, lill he got cribbe J. lie would just dose his peep rs, aud walk into the pit wthout any one helping him iu ; con found him, he uearly dragged me with him.” The company now pressed the Tomtit for more d 'tail ed infot tuition, from which it appeared that ibat ui lucky individual bad iodulged iu a spree, aud I uving boai’.ed pretty freely of bis achievements iu the burgiiry line, was incontinently pounced upon by the Phil ulelpb a po.ice, a be bad long bseu on the look out tor him. “He von’t peach I ’ope," observed D.ck Ilf ton. “It > vould be e wrvry bed blow-ap arter all tbe trouble ol ’cnee keepiof, not aoyii g nothing about ’aviug uo pri vatc conwetiienccs, and a place for to Tde when the rind blows ’igh." “He aint going to peach,” said Mr. Beg, authoiitative ly. ‘‘rot he. I know him to be a bully man." “ 80 do I, so do I,” exclaimed several voices at once “ As to the matler ol that,” remarked Tomtit, “hej keep things dark, and may be set them on the wronj scent—h t bint alone for that. But blast me,” continuet the gentleman, "that isn’t the thing; we can't spare Orib why the whole twelve of us are wanted for next week’ job, and Crib was such a locksmith that his services »er< next to gold, but it is just our confounded luck.” The Tomiit, with this brief reference to the valuiblt qualifications of Mr. Orib, proceeded to mix a third glasi of whisky punch, and to swallow the same with a look of becoming sorrow aud resignation. “ As he’s gone,” continued the Tomtit musingly, “ 1 suppose it’s best to try a d.H'erent plan; I tell you whal boys, I have a great mind to postpone the visit t) old Van Cleeker’s for a fortnight at least, till I can get ont of its iu some way connected with the house, I heard the other day that the old gentleman wanted a coachman, and if I had somebody to personate one, why it would Ire a very rum thiug to g't him in there, aud thru, don’t you see, there would be uo need ol a locksmith.” "Vy don’t go, Tointil; ypr vould make a rum coach* e, yer vould?" suggested Hick with a grin. "Why, as to that, I suppo-e I might suit the old gen tlemaii to a hair,” returned the Tomtit complacently; * hut I hare something more imfo.tant to m mage ; no. I'll tell you whal hoys, I'vn a good mimt to send one ol you ’’ “tiood," said several voices. ' I know," continued the Tomtit, “ali about tbe bouse, as far ns that goes, fori have visited every nook aud corner myself, but si ill it would be very convenient to hive somebody let us in ; Crib could bare opened the back door easily, but seeing he’s caged,we’il have to give up gelling in that way." "Ili-t!” suddenly exclaimed Mr Beg, describing with his fiugir a rapid movement in the direction of the win dow. The burglars started and pricked up their eats as they distinctly heard the sound of an nppn aching ve hicle ; it was just wheeling up before the tavern, and Mr B.-g, who had been sent to r* counoilre, quickly returned to report to the anxious gang tbit it was ouly a travel ler who had lost his way ami wished to stay over .night, "lie’s a jolly looking ’un and has a big carp.1 hag," whis pered Mr. Beg. This intelligence caused a momentary excitempnt; the burglars start**! up, their fierce eyes spirkling with it ger di light, hut meeting the gaze of their chief they sol truly resumed their seats. • Is it a werry comfortable looking bag?" et quired Diik, rubbing hands in expecta'ion of plunder. "Very promising looking I should say,” replied Mr. Beg, "hut «liat stall I do with the owner?" Four tallow candles were now brought into the room, and the luirglais In 11 a burned conversation as to In. tv they should di-pese of their visitor; some were for di - patching him at once, othirs were lor making away with him silently, but as a prolonged discussion seemed likely to arise, Mr. Beg was commissioned to s, c to the perso nal comfort of the gentleman, provide him with a suppx r, and make ready ids apartment, which last diiectiou caus ed Hr. Beg to gi'i fiom ear to ear. "Mind,” saul Id. k, "to put 'mi in the room vol’s got the trap door, violi is ther weriy model of couwcuiince, aud the romfortablcsl room in ther ’••u.-e.” Mr. B.-g laughed approvingly at Mr. Hatton's humor ous allusion to the trap-door, and left his friends to con tinue their consultation. "My advice," siiil Hick, "is to run ’im down vun 1 e‘‘ wurozing, and drop 'mi iu ther vat; dead men docsnttel) tiles" "Dead men dors tell lales, though," iiitrrrup'i <1 one ot the bmgljfs, lowering his voice loan impressive whisper, "ihcy conic up and peach, it its only to get a cove is ti ouble." "I think so, too," chimed in another, who was known hr the soubriquet of Mofee.it, "they'll come lip sometimes reu its werrv inconvenient and troublesome.

It was evident that the ourglars were unanimously in lavor of instantly destroying the traveller; though they essentially varied iu their propos ed pi n s of operation. Mr Dick iiatiou watched his leader's countenance during the progress of th.‘ conversation, but it looked stolidly indifl' lent. "Vol’s yer < pinion, Tomtit?" he inquired anxiously.— "Aint yer going to say nothing?" “Ol course I am," replied Tomtit, planting his legs defiantly on tl.e tahli; "my opinion ir ibe opinion thal'i got to lie adopted, and r.o chattering. Now look here, continued lie, lixii g his restless eyes on the group, "you all want to tunkc way with this travellei?" "Tint’s so," exclaimed the burglars. “And 1," continued Tomtit, cooly, "am (or Idling him go.” It would be impossible to describe the effect produced by this deei-ion. The burglai* jumped up, and oath and imprecations of every description, were show en d m their leader. “I say," repealed the chief, unmoved by the threaten ing attitude ol his nn-ii, “he shall go free—not a hair of his head shall he touched; aud who dares object ?" II s stern, grav eyes glanced from burglar to burglar, and they In volutitaiily quailed In lore tin ir defiant gh am. "N'ow listen, you fools, to my reasons,” continued the Tomtit, angrily, a* tbe overawed villains shrank hack in to tin ir seals. "Vou ail know next week we do a heavy job in the wholesale line; alter it’s done we inuat keep daik; the •Ncsl' is the only place we arc sale in, and here we must remain till the mattei blows over, hut, if this man ia missed, between that and the job there'll lac stub a line and cry raised that we wou't dare to show our heads; now do you understand?" "Veil, s’pose we run the horse and wagon up the country, aud hitch his clothes by the side uv the river, vich vdl look is though lie circumweute-d himself?" sug gests Mr. Molecat. The Tomtit shook his head contemptuously. “Now, then, what would you get fur the pains-taking and ii«k? Why, just a carpet-hag, and maybe a tew ttillcs; people ain't such fools as you take them, to go lugging money around the country—there would I e plenty of questions asked about the carpel bag, at <1 likely enough the horse might take it into bis head to come back—horses aiu’t fools either," observed the To » lit, sareantcally. Mr. Molecat scratched his head, as an expressive itnii cation that the argument was unanswerable, aud a ah., 1 pause ensued. “Veil," remarked Dick Hatton, breaking the silence, “the Tomtit's right, I s’pose, but Jit does look s rrtn i. ...I 11 a» LiniV rnli'lipii In lh*» lurkin'? O 'jin. It's mean, that’s vot it is!’’ Thp Tomtit vouchsafed no reply to this sullen speech, but lighting a fresh cigar, ho rose, shook bitustlf, an called Mr. Meg in u separate apartment. “Where is the man?" said he. “In the hack room, eating his supper," was tbit wor thy’s reply; "you can peep at him easy enough, for 1 left the door on the swing.” The Tomtit aecoidingly crept stealthily into the pts sage, and grtliug on his bands and knees, obtained a ve ry excellent view of the stranger, who was ipticlly pri • cerdiog with his meaL Scarcely, however, had the Tom tit’s restless eye peered within, ihan he gave a start o surprise, and ret cated immediately. “Here. Beg," he whispered, in an excited tone, as that individual followed him hack again to the private room; “here’s a confound- d go. Who do you suppose that m«u is f” Mr. Beg, of course, intimated that he di-l’nt know, whereupon the Tomtit, lookiug around to satia’y hi ns» f they were alone, brought his hand in the form of a trum pet close to Mr“. Beg's isr, at.d whispered : “ /t’» j >"[!.</ r lir. Beg’s (ice turnrd dtadly pale. “What,” he whispered, “the Detective?" “Tin same,” r.joined the Tomtit, with an expression plainly denoting his agitation. “Who or whit should bring him here alone, I neither know nor can guess - Beg, keep tlii" from the boys, they are savage enough now’ but if they should find out the truth, I could’nt co: - trol ’em. They would tear this man to pieces, but, Beg. that mustn’t be; they mud be led off; for it would b. the worst thing y et to kill him ; he wou’d be missed a sure as preachiug " ‘•la this the one who has been trying so long to turn our Nest?" inquired Beg. ••The very s’inie/* replied Tomtit. “V oil know too State government has offered a reward of live thousand dollars for the discovery of our whereabouts, and thi Duffy has been sueuking around trying to find os, not s< much for the possession of the reward as some private aim ; he aim a regular Detective, or he might be led tfl; years ago he was on our track. 1 have been watching iiitu all along, designing to finish him whin a good oppor tunity offered, hut the wiry scoundrel managed to escape me; he may disguise himself as Hitch us he Ikes, Iij cin't cheat me.” , . “lie's disguised, then?" sa il Mr. Beg, amazed afresh. “Of course he i-; that fatness isn't reel. He thinks he’s unknown to me, but l II pay him off yet," »< j iiu. d the Tomtit, with a silent imprecation. "I’ll get rid of him, but it mustn't be done here. Now. then. Beg, lt - ten : Ketch me a lantern and the key of the- * underi-taud me." .. . ». Beg nodded his head, and Hew off with alacrity. t>a oris entertained a greater admiration of the Tomtit th in that gentlemau ; he regarded him wiih the same de-uj eoce a dog would show to his mai'er, and was contented as long as he could teitily bia servile sffectiou ; he gunk lv returned with the lantern and ksy, and to his gr- at surprise found the burglar «l,i.l absorbed in the cook m plalion of the miniature of a young girl, seemingly joint fevent'cn years of age, and of turpastdug loveliness, anc heard him mutter : “//t certainly hae qo'xl ranee to A.i'i me, hut / would have • pared him had he kept away from ‘the Acs/,’ Aote, hoeeever, he ha* 'lulled upon hie doom ,r I Then becoming aware ol Hog's p xtence, the Tomtit ha tily thrust the picture in his bosom, and turning to the I iun-keeper, whispered: "Let me out by the back door, Beg.” 1 "All right," was the quick response. ’ Not a word to tin* boys mind ; if they mist me, toil ’em I've gone to b d." The Tomtit, with his parting caution, made his exit from the door, which Mr. Beg held open, and walked rspidly off. The faithful custodian of the Burglars’ Seat stood for a few minutes listening, t II the retreatftg footsteps of the burglar chief had died away in the distance; then he carefully closed and relockcd the door, and returned to the bar, there to mute over the surprising aud startling di-closures which lITe Tomtit had made to him. It was one of those remarkable circumstance* that sometimes happen in real life, that Mr. Detective Dully should have unconsciously blundered into the very place he lud been starching lo- vainly the past two year*. As he sat quietly catitig his rapper I c little dreamt that a few yards tiff stood a figure which, the mere sight of, would have movul him lo an absolute frenzv; and well it miglf,—for there war a story connected with that fig tire, a ulc so heart-rending, so terrible, so revolting,—of lailii broken, of hospitality abused, of wrongs perpetra ted, of an idolized daughter consigned to Wretchedm *s, —that it could not have been passed over, fji had left its impress on III) care-woru features of that olJ man, dies ernible in every lineament; his gray eyei seemed to llash with the spirit,—of deep, absorbing revenge. And now those rrrmn-n were about to meet_the Detccctive k; own to the Burglar, the Burglar utikuown to the Detective—to ergage in a desperate gvtne, the issue of which was to be dea it to one or both.
