The committee on Nominations reported the
names of the gentlemen lollowing for the offi
ces designated below, whereupon their report
was accepted und the proposed nominees unan
imou;?l/ elected :
James B. Minor, of Albemarle, President.
Major J. T. L. Preston of Lcrxington, Rev.
VV. '1 itnberlaUe of Albemarle, Wm. O. Foun
tain of Henry, Kev. P Fletcher of Jefferson,
Dr. Peteilield Trent of Richmond, Vice Presi
A. McDonald of Lynchburg, Dr. J. A.
Forbesot Albemarle, anu N. A. iSturdivant of
Henrico. Secretaries.
The President elect, on taking the chair,
made a very short and appropriate speech, in
which he made an apology (as is sometimes
done) for appearing in publtc, on the ground of
having little acquaintance with addressing
public assemblies. He considered the magni
tude of the Temperance enterprise to be such
as to call upon every man, having the true in
terests of the community at heart, to rise up
and support it. A crisis had arrived in the pro
gress of temperance measures and movements,
which demanded action —vigorous action—and
he was happy to say, that from the high cha
racier of the members of th : s Convention, ihe
various exciting topics which were likely to
arise during the discussion, would undoubted
ly be treated in the spirit of candor and forbear
ance. We have arrived at a crisis demanding
the aetion of every true friend of man. There
was much difference of opinion as to mea
sures, and the clashing views of different per
sons would perhaps ba best brought to har
monise, by a free and candid discussion. For
thi3 he looked, in Ihe fullest confidence, thaf
the action of the Convention would be of such
a nature as to promote the cause of tempe
rance and the general welfare of the public.
Rev. Mr. Tinsley, ol Albemarle, moved the
appointment of a committee lo prepare busi
ness for the Convention.
Mr. Minor, ol tbe State Central Committee,
moved that it consist of seven persons; where
upon the chair appointed Rev. Mr. Tinsley,
L. Minor, A. F. Speek, J. T. L. Preston, Kr.
Tilden, Dr. Trent and Dr. Gatnbell.
Mr. H. Magruder then proposed the follow
ing rules ot order, which were adopted :
1. Resolved, That no member shall speak oftaner
than twios oa any question, nor more ccan 20 min
ntei etch time, wi.houc cna unanimous consent oi ihs
2. Tnat ih« concurraoce of 10 members shall b# suf
ficient to sustain a car (or che prev ous qu«atioa.
3. Taa; whenevsr damaaied oy 10 mambsrs, any
qiesr.'-c shall oe determined by county ceiegation»,
e cii count? rear-seated bsmg allowed the same vote
a) in t ie Horse of Delegates.
4. That tn a:l other p»racuurs. fha einve->tion will
be governed dv tae rules of tae House ot De egates,
u rar as they ars applicable.
Rev. Pattison Fletcher, of Jefferson, made
en enquiry as to the iate of the memorials
which bad been prepared in pursuance of a re
solution of the Convention held at Staunton in
August last. He stated that he had not heard
what had become of tnem, but believed that
most, if not all, the political papers in tbe
Slate had opposed then.
Mr. Sturdivunt, in reply to the question of
the reverend gentleman, said ihat_ the entire
plan had failed, not from any dereliction from
Juiy on the part of the Central Committee, but
