< O.—Ureal Desideratum for Smok
ers.—The undersigned offer to the consumers ol
Km./king Tob'icco, an article which has been pro
£«u:iced by all who have tested it, superior to any
preparation of the weed for smoking purposes,
wmon has yet been ottered to the public. The pe
cu..aradTOttaae of the article which they offer, is
this: :n ail tobacco there is a concrete oil, Nicotine,
or.e of its active principles, and which is eminently
poisonous The effects of this principle are disa
greeably i'elt, more or less, upon the nerves and
stomach, by ali smokers. The Tobacco offered by
tne undersigned has been entirely deprived of its
poisonous properties, whilst, at the same time, it
retains ali ita fragrant and aromatic qualities. So
n.::d and pleasant nhs it been rendered that persons
o! nerves can use it without inconvenience.—
I' has the additional advantage that it does not leave
thai strong and pungent odor so perceptible and
oltensive in close rooms.
The above article can be found in any quan

democratic contention.
[third DAT.]
. , „ . Thursday, Jane 3.
Another fine morning broke in splendor to
day , and diffused over the convention and -'the
rest of mankind" its grateful auspice*. The
members begau to assemble in good time, and
we must confess that the atmosphere of the
hall soon indicated a very ardent temperature,
the effect of which upon the assembled
gates, we sincerely hope may pass off quietly
ia healthful perspiration.
The convention was called to order at half
past 9 o'clock.
Prayer was offered by Rev. J Campbell
Tbe journal of proceedings was read and
Major B. B. French, the former excellent
clerk of the House of Representatives volun
teered his occasional services to the conven
tion, for the relief of the Secretaries, in read
ing, and his fine voice gave every thing with
tbe utmost distinctness.
The ihair slated tbe business as before the
convention at the time of adjournment.
1 he chairman of the committee on creden
tials asked leave to amend tha report in refer
ence to the Georgia delegation, bv striking
out the word "legitimate" in the "following
nlaed" 008 ' * inserting the word "orga-
. 'P' le resolutions of the committee on creden
tials, accompanying the report on the Georgia
question, are as follows:
Resolved, 1 hat the democratic delegates
from Georgia, represented by Cohen, (State
Rights) consisting of 21 members, are the
legitimate representatives of Georgia, and are
therefore entitled to their seats.
Resolved, That the delegates represented
by Mr. Jackson, 17 in number, are democrats
in principle, and reflect the sentiment of a por
tion of the democracy of Georgia, and that
they be admitted to seats in the convention,
and that said delegation thus united cast the
vote of the State.
The chair stated the proposition as pending,
to be on the main question, as relating to the
resolution offered by ftlr. Boulware, of Virginia,
which is as follows:
Resolved, That the twenty-one delegates re
presented by Mr. Jackson constitute the dele
gation from Georgia, in this convention, and
that they cast the vote of the State accord
On proceeding to take the question, it was
again asked what would be the effect of voting
aye or no. The chairman stated that the vote
was on the main question, which, if determined
in the affirmative, would demand the question
first, and to-day, on the resolution of Mr. Boul
ware, of Va., and secondly on agreeing to so
much of the report of the committee on creden
tials as relates to the Georgia delegation.
The question was taken and determined by
183 uyes, and 6 noes.
JudgeSturgess, of Georgia, rose and stated
that the resolution of the gentleman from Vir
ginia, was withdrawn.
Mr. Boulware rose and confirmed the fact.
The President stated that the vole recurs on
adopting the report of the committee.
A motion to reconsider the vote on the
main question was made. Cull for a vote by
The motion to reconsider was lost by the
following vole—Ayes 82, noes 164.
The President stated (hat the question re
curred on agreeing to the report of the com
mittees on credentials.
Judge Sturgeas asked permission first to con
fer with the chairman on credentials.
This conference resulted in proposing an
amendment to change the word "entitled" to
"admitted," in the report of the committee.—
The amendment was agreed to, and the report
as amended was concurred in, by a viva voce
vote almost unanimously. And thus closed
the Georgia question.
Mr.Cave Johnson offered a resolution that
the convention proceed to a nomination of the
President and Vice President of the United
States this afternoon at 4 o'clock.
A modification of the resolution was pro
posed, that the convention note proceed to the
nomination of candidates tor President and
Vice President.
A gentleman from Massachusetts objected
to the vote on adopting the report on creden
tials entire; he did not understand it so.
The President stated that he had expressly
declared that the whole report was before the
A vote was demanded on that portion of the
report of the majority oi the commitiee on cre
dentials, relating to the 2d district of Massa

and sustained. A vote by States was de
On calling Georgia, a delegate replied,
"Georgia declines to vote."
Subsequently Georgia, by Judge Sturgiss
announced that "Georgia votes to sustain the
report of the committee"—voting aye.
The circulation of the minority report sus
taining the right of Mr. Kantoul, was not with
out its eflect, several of the delegations cast
ing a divided vote, and evincing a recognition
of the claims set forth in that paper. The ma
jority report was, however, adopted by the fol
lowing vote—ayes, IS#4; noes, 83.
On this announcement Gen. Neye rose and
moved a reconsideration oi the vole, and ou
that motion said he wished to be heard.
Gen. Neye proceeded to say that he had no
tenacity on this matter for the man, but he was
influenced by a sense of justice. He coatended
that the report he had had the honor to make,
was sanctioned by the Massachusetts Legisla
ture itself.
A gentleman from Massachusetts aked if the
gentleman would give way for an explanation
"No sir," he replied, "1 will not give way;
lam afraid to give way." The speaker then
proceeded to reiterate the statements set forth
in the minority report, as contained in the ad
vertising columns of the Sun, and earnestly
sustained them in a speech of some length.
The chair put the question on a motion to
lay the motion to reconsider on the table, sud
it was carried. ■
Gen. Commander rose and moved the recon
sideration of so much of the report as refera
to South Caiolina.
Mr. McCook,of Ohio, rose to & point of or
der. He objected that the person now before
the conventual was not entitled to a seat on
this floor.
His name was called for and given, and the
President decided that be was not recognised
in this convention.
The Hon. Mr.Venable, of North Carolina,
moved a reconsideration, and that Gen. Com
mander be heard. The convention refused by
a decided vote. ... ~
A motion was then submitted that the Con
vention proceed to ballot for candidates for
President and Viee President, and that it be the
special order of the day uutil a nomination be

are hisses in the galleries." [Cries of "No

with the rights and privileges of others. We
only ask that when votes are cast for Buchan

I here was slight hissing in some quarters,

ber opo was gone with a friend for a license,
lover number two arrived in town, and ascer

hastened to her and told how his pure heart
washer's. She listened and decided. In less

tleman and lady, en route to Dayton in a pri
vate carriage. The maiden was safely de
posited in her father's house, and soon after

cued her. Lover numbe* one, we presume,
will either drown or shoot himself, or else make
up his mind "there are as good fish in the sea
yet as ever were caught."—Cin. Com.
