Resolutions, which were referred.,
Mr. Martin statcd'to tho meeting that
when exiled upon this morning to net as
Secretary he had not declined, because
some of liLs friends desired him not to do
so, in the expectation that the deliberations
of the meeting might be, ..concluded
to-day. It was evident now;, however,
thut this could not be the ciise; and he
was called upon by imperative engagements
to ask the meeting to excuse him
from further service -. Mr. Martin said
that he regretted the necessity of making [
uiu request. i nai at an limes, and under
nil circumstances, lie was willing to work
in any harness in this cause. Still more
did lie regret to be obliged to leave r?.n
assembly, in which it was ev:',r>nt, froiu
tokens exhibited to-day, that mere exists
so determined and resolute a spirit
of resistance to aggression and injury.?
Mr. Martin, however, felt obliged to leave,
and moved that Mr. Win. M. Ilutson,
from Orange, be substituted in his nlacc:
and the same was ordered.
On motion of Mr. Mosses, it was
Ordered, That when the meeting adjourn,
it stand adjourned to meet to-morrow
at 10 o'clock. And the meeting
then adjourned.

ticulnrs of this disgraceful affair. Wo rcjoico
to know, that nothing of tlio land 1ms over taken
pluco at tho South. It is at least strange,
that an intelligent community would suffer
themselves to bo carried off by tho potty joa!
ousics of two rival actors, cither in nn attempt
to uphold tho one, or debaso the other. Our

to protect the theatre. Tlmt inosl of ihe killed

and that tho verdict of tho Jury of Inquest iH
well received
SUMMARY OF THE KIOT AT N. YORK.
Serious indued must lmvc been the disturbance
created by the jealousies of tho two rival
actors, Forrest and Mncready, when it required
the intervention of an armed force to quell the
rioters. Mncready having been driven from the
siage c:i monuny niglit, 7th hint., fit the earnest
solicitations of a number of the citizens, announced
his re-appearance on the next Thursday
evening. A large crowd assembled at the Astor
Place, and as many of the rioters as could procure
seats, entered tl.o theatre. The appearance
of Macready \> as the signal for tiie out
ureuK, nc was greeieu uy msses nn<l groans.
The performances were constantly interrupted
by tlicfle men of 110 law?u number of them
were arrested by Uio Police who had been
placcd in the house for that purpose. The mob
outside having increased io a very largo 1111111bor,
and hearing the efforts of their comrades
to hisn the actor from tho stage, commor.ccd
operations by throwing stonec, shouting, and
making n great uproar in the street 'l'lio cn
Tire ponce were 011110'' 1 > and their efforts to
suppress the riot woe ent irely unavailing. A
considerable number of militia were ordered,
and as they appeared tl.ey were hissed and
booted by the mob?it however opened and
allowed them to pa?s. The militia were then
stationed before the theatre to secure an oppress
Tor the audience. Tlic mob became bo violent
that the performances were stopped?they had
broken the windows and doorj, and tired several
times the theatre. Tlie mob, at length having
occupied an adjacent marble yard, commenced
an attack upon the militia?severely
wounding the Captain of one of the companies,
some of the other officers, nnd several privates.
The wounded were removed to the theatre.?
The mob in possession of the marble yard were
charged by the police nnd driven back; but as
soon as the officers left, it re-occupied the same
and continued to throw stones at the militia.?
It is said that several pistols were fired by the
mob, but of this there seems to be no certain,
ty. The militia informed the Sheriff that unless
they received orders to fire, that they
would leave. They were ordered to load and firo

fired at them, killing ?! and wounding 33,some

the mob dispersed, and left the military and Police
in posaoission of the field, which they occupied
for the remainder of the night,
Ah serious disturbances were expcctcd for
tho next night, (Friday 11th in.it.,) effective
measures were taken to suppress it. A larger
number of armed forces were called out, and it
is said tluit the Governor of New York made a
requisition for some of the United States forces.
which were placed at his disposal. Placards
were ]?est?d up, calling a meeting of the citizens
at the Park for this evening. A largo
concourse assembled, and several very inflammatory
speeches were made, censuring the
authorities and charging them with murder.
The Mayor issued a, proclamation calling on
the citizens to rally to the standard of peace
and good order. The measures taken by the
authorities checked any serious outbreak.

We clip the following synopsis of the debate
in the Convention from the South Caroliiuan :
The President, on opening the business of W
tho Convent'on, addressed the delegates in a
most impressive and fcelinir manner. Hin loner
nnd devoted service to the State rendered him
in every respect Worthy of tho position he occupied,
ftiul the weight of years, with ita ^(uneven
treasure of experience, eminently fitted
him to preside over nnd direct the consultation*
and deliberations of South Carolinians.
Mr. Elmore, tho Ohairmnn of tho Committee
of Twenty-one, introduced tho resolutions with
some very forcible and eloquent remarks. They
irciu iujjiuiu wiih wnoiesome numonmons ana
sound reasoning.
jMr. Strobhart, from St. Luke's, followed luin,
ill strong nnd earnest language, dcpiciting tlio
wrongs attempted to be inflicted upon the
Southern States, and in glowing language described
the feelings the people of South Carolina.
Mr. Black, from Richland, next addressed
the Convention, in support of the resolutions
reported by the Comimtt< e, and in liis usual
forcible manner urged their adoption.
Mr. Perry, from Greenville, also made an
able speech, expressing his preference for the
proposition for a Southern (!nnv?nt.tnn lm?
heartily concurring in the resolutions of tho
Committee.
Messrs. l'oj e. Spain, fuul Eaves also addressed
the Convention in the same spirit of conciliation
and harmony, as did also Mr. Hutson, of
Orangeburg, who advocated a bold and fearless
position OS the proper one tor South Carv'na.
Mr. McCord addressed tho Convention in ?.
speech of eoino length, which wad recoivcl
with many indication1! of gratification by tho
Convention and andienco. It was a n.a?tcrly
effort, and produced tlic happiest cfToct by tho
manner in which lie portrayed (South Carolina's
true position.
Mr. Eaves, from Chcfttcr, also addressed tho
Convention in support of the resolution found
reported in another column and adopted by
tho Convention.
Tho Central Executive Conuiuttcc of tho
State are men in whom the people will have
every confidencc in the position assigned them.
They were chosen by ballot as follows: F. H.
I Elmore, James Gadsden, "Wade Hampton, D,
J. McCord, and F. W. Pickens,
To tliia Committee, with the co-operation of
tho District Committees, the people of the
Stato have confided their interest*, and they
will not find their confidence misplaced.

ARRIVAL OF THE CANADA.
IiIVerfool, May 6.
Political.?Official notice had been received
at Pans of the intervention of
Russia in the difficulties between Austria
and Hungary. Russia is understood to
have placed a largo force at the disposal
of Austria, amounting, it is said, to one
hundred and fifty thousoud men.
The Hungarians have every where
been victorious over the Austrians, and
have nearly annihilated their army. The
greatest alarm prevails at Vienna.
The King of Prussia has definitively refused
to accept the Imperial Crown of
Germany, which had occasioned a slight
