Chairman of the Com mittee on Resolutions, made the follow ing report: RESOLUTIONS. 1. Retnlved, That the people of Ohio in Convention assembled, solemnly renew the pledges heretofore made by the coun try, that they will in the future as they have in the past, sustain the Government with all their resources of men and money in suppressing the wicked and atrocious rebellion against the Constitution, the Union and the laws. 2. JUeolved, That the loyal popular in stinct of the people in demanding the re election of Abraham Lincoln to the Pres idency, illustrates the highest wisdom, and in obedience to, this Convention cor dially recommends to the National Union Convention his re-nomination. 3. Resolved, That we congratulate the country upon the brilliant success of our arms and make acknowledgement of our gratitude to the army and Navy of the United States for their great fervices, which we accept as a guarantee, that un der Providence final victory will speedily come, and this rebellion forever crushed. 4. Resolved, That with just pride we proclaim the fact, that in the Cabinet, in the field and in the councils of the na tion, the ability, fidelity and patriotism of Ohio have been proudly manifest. 5. Resolved, That this Convention lure by pledges the cordial support of the Un ion men of Ohio to the great measures which have marked the Administration of Abraham Lincoln, and especially do we approve the pending amendment of the Constitution, to make the States of the Union all free and all Republican and therefore forever one and undivided. The entire proceedings of the Conven vention were marked by courtesy, kind ness and harmony, there not being on any point jarring discord. Personal preferences were patriotically yielded, and all bore themselves like earnest men, feeling their responsibilities in the great crisis of the country's fare. Great enthusiasm was elicited by the reading of dispatches in the early part of the Convention, announcing cheering news from the Potomac Army. Having done its work well, and pre sented a good ticket for the suffrages of the people of the State, the Convention adjourned with three cheers for the Union. The Officers at Gallipolis It affords us cleasure to announce that the new Commandant ofthis post, Colon el John Ferguson, enters upon the discharge of his official duties in an accept able manner. These duties have greatly increased since the establishment of our town as a point of rendevous for troops, yet but few persons think of their odorous character. Our citizens see soldiers sol dierssoldiers; admire their quietness; praise their gentlemanly deportment; heai of their being organized into . regi ments bv consolidation; with delight dai ly nock to witness dress parades, while but few think that this host of men are under Post supervision. The Command ant is unassuming, gentlemanly in de portment, and soldierly in bearing. Hav ing seen service, and having a correct idea of office, he dignifies the position, dispos ing of the varied and perplexing business of the post acceptably, without ostenta tion or display. We congratulate him in bis selection of a Post Adjutant in the person ot ueo. v. Messer. He is a valuable auxiliary, qual ified to perform whatever he undertakes. affable and soldierly ot whom it may do snid. that he has not mistaken his calling. His shoulder is a perch, and if we bad it at our disposal an Eagle should roost up on it. (jalupoiit JJtspateh. The Case of Kees vs. Tod. We publish, on our first page, the argu- ment of B. F. Hoffman, Esq., in the case ef John W. Kees vs. David Tod, et al, on a motion to remove the case for trial from the Court of Common Pleas of Pickaway County to the United States Circuit Court, together with the opinion ot Judge Dick- ey delivered in granting the prayer the defendants. The argument and opinion are impor tant, involving as they do a discussion the constitutionality of the 4th and 5th sections of the act of Congress, passed March 3. 1893, conferring noon the Pres ident certain extraordinary power, orrath- er declaring the nature ot the powers in vested in him as Commander in-chief the army and navy by the Constitution. It is not our purpose to go over the e-ronnd covered bv the opinion of Judge Dickey, restate what is there so luminous- ly set forth. There are very loose notions to the war power vested in the President, which this opinion will go far to correct. The argument, so lrequently brought forward by those intent upon convicting the President of usurpation authority, that the exersise of martial power is to be confined to the territory which is tne immediate theatre of war, and can not be extended or exercised out side of that limitation, ia fairly met Judge Dickey, and thoroughly exploded. The argument and opinion deserve a ear ful consideration. The Tomb of David Hume. David Hume, who produced in his time so much skepticism as to the eyidinoes Christianity, does not seem to have con-, vinced his own relatives. A correspon dent of The Presbyterian says: "By the way, speaking of Edinburgh, while there I acted as guide to a brother minister from America, on a visit to the tomb th infiriol Hume. It is a circular stone building: over its iron-gated door there inscribed his name. Wltn tne aaies oi birth and deatb. No doubt, like VolUire, he flattered him elf that he bad given the death-blow to Christianity. But, be hold, there on the wall of his tomb, those who are flesh of his flesh and bone of bone, bear testimony to the fallacy of expectation. - On its outside, and imme diately above the name of Hume himself, there is a tablet containing an inscription, by a David Hume to biswife, Jane Alder, dated 1817,' closing with these words, 'Be hold I come quickly. Thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.' Also, in the interior, there is another tablet, sacred to the memory of David Hume, one of the Bar ons of Exchequer, And his two sons, da ted in 1848; - the whole surmounted these encouraging words, 'I am the Res urrection and tho Life.' " Death of Hon. J. R. Giddings. From an obituary notice in the Cleve land Herald, we ettr.net the following. The deceased wa in Athens, Bradford county, Pennsylvania, October Cth, 1795. In infancy his parents removed to Canan daigua N. Y. where they remained until he was len years of age when they re moved to Asbtabulit county, Ohio. In 1812, at the age of seventeen he en tered in the service, taking the place, as substitute, of an elder brother. He was in two or more Indiun battles on our lake frontier near Sanduaky, and after the war engaged in school teaching. In 1817 he entered the law ollice oi the late hmib Whittlesey, and was admitted to practice in 1820. In 1820 he was elected to the Legislature, and iu 1833 became the suc cessor in Congress of Mr. Whittlesey. Here he soon bvcame prominent as an an ti slavery advocate, his firt speech on that subject being delivered February 9ih 1841. upon the Florida Indian War. He also, some years subsequent, wrote a very readable book entitled Exiles of Florida, in which he illustrated the fact that the Florida Indian war wa.i but a slaveholders plan for reclamation of runaway slaves. In 1C4- the Uou.se, on motion oi jonn II. Bntts. parcd a resolution consunng Mr. Giddings for introducing ct-rtain res oluutions declaring thtit the slaves who upon the Creole, were being transported, from Virginia to New Orleans, and who rose upon the master and crew, and. kill ing one man. took possession oi tue ves sel and escaped to a British port, violated no law, were liable to no punishment, and that they could not be re-ens'.aved. He held that slavery being an abridge ment of natural right, it had no force be yond the slave State, and that when the Creole left the waters or that Stale, the blacks ceased to be subject to slave laws; and had a right to astet t their freedom, bv force if necessary. The resolution of censure was passed by a vote of one hun dred and twenty-five to sixty-nine, Mr. Giddings, under the operation of the pre vious question, not being premitlea to oe heard. Mr.Giddings resigned his sent, appealed to his constituents, was immediately re elected, by an increased majority, and re sumed his seat after but six weeks ab sence. He was opposed to the admission of Texas, was opposed to yielding any thing to England in the Oregon bounrtry controversy, and insisted that Air. roix s Administration did yield because it fear ed a war with Great Britian would endan ger the existauce of slavery. Mr. Gid dings refused to vote for Koliert C. Win- throp, the big candidate lor speaner, in 1847. and in 1843 he went over to Mr. Van Buren and the Free Soil party. In 1849. he. with eight other in the House, refused to support any man for Speaker who would not make a pledge to so con struct the committees as to secureconsid eration for petitions relating to slavery, and therefore voted. si!in. against Jlr. Winthrop. and thus threw the office of Speaker into the hands or Howell tofib, of Georgia. Mav 8. 185G. Mr. U. had the hrst ot those attacks to which we have referred. He fell while addressing the House, but soon revived, although much shattered by the attack. January 17, 1858, he fell again in the House, and remained uncon scious so long that lie was thought to be dead. By advice of his physician, he re mained a while from his post, and, in 1859. failing of a nomination, his term of Congressional service expired. On the omis K in nf Mr Lincoln'" J Adminttra? tion.

Kocgis; anu lie thus concludes his article: Soon after the conclusion of peace, din ing with Com. Rodgers at lus house in Washington, lie related to me the follow ing circumstances, which I give nearly in his own words: "I acknowledged the receipt of your letter," he observed, "and was determut ed to have the signals made on board, and to try the experiment, none of my officers understanding for what purpose they were intended. I cruised some time without meeting an enemy, until on- afternoon we fell in with a schooner, some six or eight miles to windward of us. We hoist ed the British ensign, which was answer ed by displaying another, and atthesa.ne time a signal at her maintop gallant mast head, which I immediately discovered was like one of those vou had given me. From the list of Engiisfi frigates. I selected the number of the Sea Horse, one of their largest class, and known to be on our coast, and hoisted it. She bore down at once and came under our stern ; I order ed her to heave to, and I would send a boat on board of her. "This order was obeyed, and I despatch ed a Lieutenant to bring her signal book. enjoining on him and the crew, the strict est secrecy respecting our character. He was politely received by the Captaiu, whose schooner proved to be the Uightly er. Our Lieutenant's coat attracted his attention, not being of the latest London fashion, although the crown and anchor was on the button; but casting his eyes on the frigate, seeing the British ensign, and now and then the red coat or a ma rine Appearing above the hammock net ting, bis mind was apparently set at ease. "The Lieutenant informed him that he was requested to bring his signal book on board the Sea Horse, in order to have some alterations made, as there was a ru mor that the Yankees had possession of j something like the signals, and it was and our Lieutenant returned with the book, which placed me in command of the whole correspondence of the British. Javy. I sent the gig for the Captain, requesting him to come on board, and bring any dis patches he might have in charge, "On reaching our deck be seemed sur prised at the size of the vessel, praised her cleanliness, and the order in which ev erything appeared: admired the red coats of the marines, and on being invited into the cabin banded me a bundle of dispatch es for Admiral Warren, whom heobterved must be within forty miles to leeward I ordered refreshments, and, in company with several of my officers, we entered in to a general conversation. "I asked him what object Admiral War ren had in that neighborhood ? He said to intercept American privateers and mer chantmen, but particularly to catch com' modore Rodgers. who. he understood, had command of one of the largest and fast- ; est sailing frigates in the American Navy this Rodgers was, and if he had ever seen him? He said no; but he had understood that he was an old character, and rather hard to catch. Afterconversing on sever al other subjects. I abruptly put the ques tion to him: "'Sir, do you know what vessel you are on board of? " 'Why. ves. sir.' he replied, 'on board His Majesty's ship Sea Horse !' " 'Then, sir, you labor under very great mistake. You are on board tne uni ted States Friaate President, and I Commo dore Rodgers, at your service.' "The dying dolphin never assumed greater variety of colors than ' did this poor fellow's face. 'Sir,' said he, you are disposed to be humorous, and must joking. I assured him that it was no joke; and to satisfy him on that head, handed him my cortimis-ion. At tho Mime mo ment the band struck up Yankee D.wd!i, on our quarter deck; on reaching which, he saw the American enicn flyiug, the red coats turning blue, and the crown and anchor button metamorphoted into the eagle.

And it is true, indeed; but he considers not that it is not in the power of riches to make a man happy; for it was wisely said by a man sreat observation. "That there bo many miseries beyond riches as on this side of them." And yet heaven deliver us from pinching poverty, and grant that having a competency, we may be content and thankful. Let us not repine, or much as think the gifts of God are une qually dealt, if we see another abound with riches, when, as God knows, the cares that are the keys that keep those riches hang often so heavily at the rich man's girdle that they clog him with weary days and restless nights, even when others sleep quietly. We see but the outaide of the rich man's happiness; few consider him to be like the silk-worm, that when she seems to play, is at the same time spinning ont her own bowels, and consuming herself. And this many rich men do, loading themselves with corroding cares to keep what they have already got. Let us therefore, be thank ful for health and competence and above all, for a quiet conscience.

During the latter part of April, troops began to come up the Kanawha in great numbers, showing that "something was up." On the 29th inst.. Gen. Crooks broke up head quarters at Charleston, and proceeded up the river with his com mand. The infantry force consisted of three brigades commanded by Colonels Hay, White and Sickles, being respect ively of the first, second and third brig ades. This force made a rapid and steady advance into the interior, passing through Fayetteville, Raleigh, Princeton, and oth er places on the route to the v irginiaand East Tennessee Railroad. On the 5th inst., we crossed the Flat Top Mountain; the roads were very much obstructed by fallen timber which the ! rebels had recently cut to prevent our ad vance, ihese biocKaaes were generally big sharp angles in the roads, or where there was a narrow and difficult passage.

As soon the engagement began on the left, our brigade (the first,) was moved forward line down a slope of the mountain and across a large open field in the face of the rebels, who poured a heavy fire into us we advanced. Our left wing wag also hot ly engaged, and for an hour there was mntimiHl roar of musketry along the whole line. The rebels made a charge upon our guns, but were repulsed with heavy loss. Col. Hays, commanding the 1st brigade, led a charge upon the rebel guns, capturing two brass pieces, which had annoyed us considerably during the earlier part of action. The enemy finally gave way, obstinately fighting as they fell back towards Dublin. Two miles from the latter place the reb els received reinforcements, and attempt ed to make another stand, but were soon driven from their position, when their en tire force retreated towards the railroad bridge over New river. Our force was much fatigued to pursue them far, and we halted for the night at Dublin Depot, on the Virginia and East Tennessee Kail road. We were very much elated by victory, but it was won at a heavy cost, and that night we missed many familiar fanes, from our ranks, faces of old com rades, tried on many a hard fought field, and found true to their country and man brwvt Our total lo?s in tbe battle was about hundred: I cannot learn the exact number. The 12th and 23d Ohio Regi ments, and the 9th West Virginia Vol unteers, experienced the heaviest loss. It is needless to speak of any one regi ment at doing more than another, for did nobly. The robelabad the advantage in everv resnect. but were defeated on a eronnti of their own enoosin", ana we --. . justly felt proud of the day's work. It is called the "Battle or uwyea jioum-o. We have no means of learning the rebel Iom, but it was heavy as the prisoners we captured admitted. Nearlf all of their wounded were got off the field A they retreated. The scene of action was in a fine farm ing country, extending from the base of the mountain to the Depot, a distance of seven or eight miles.- - - Early the next merning. our forces moved out to attack the rebels again,, who were supposed to be near the New river bridge. It was a great object for them to hold this bridge, for its destruction, would cut off railroad . communication with the Southwest, and consequently prevent supplies from being sent to Lee's army from the chief source. We advanced about seven miles when the rebels opened fire with artillery. Oar force" were got into position fheltered from tliA artillery fire as ranch a-i possible and our batteries ran np tho tront. A spirited shelling was kept up m both sids for a short time, when at length one rosiment of infantry charged n;n the rebel works. Th7 retreated in" haste across the river, and m a few minute the bridge was in flames, and was in a short time entirely consumed.- As the last timber fell in to the riverand floated off", there arose a shout of exulta tion such as I never heard before. The great object of our expedition w.i? accomplished, and we finally saw the de struction of the point that we had often and vainly attempted to reach for wore than two years. We slowly retraced our steps from the river bank back to the turnpike and proceeded to Pepper's Fer ry, which we crossed and encamped on the north bank of Red river. Up to this time we had been pretty well supplied with provisions, but now we had to de pend upon the uncertain chances of get ting supplies in the country through which we passed. As long as the excite ment of the prospect of a battle was kept up, and till after the fight, we kept our strength, but as soon as all was over many of us began to feel worn out with fatigue. We had marched up to the time we cross ed the river; for twelve consecutive days, averaging seventeen miles each day. On the 11th we marched to Blacksburg. in Montgomery county, passing through a rich farming country. There was a great amountof cultivated land, mostly cropped with wheat. - At Blacksburg parties were sent out to forage for supplies. - A corporal and three men belonging to the 23d went out just before evening and- have not been heard from since. They were probably taken by the rebels, who were koowu to be prowling about in order to cut off and capture stragglers. We left Blacksburg on the 12th and ar- rived here on the 19th, marching about fifteen miles each day, and passed through Monroe county into Greenbrier count, where we are in camp at present. We have a few days of rest to recruit our strength A great number of slaves followed us out from the country through which we passed, and have gone rejoicing on their to the land of freedom.

In the third department of the hall, about three feet from the mark which divided it from the second sat the Tycoon upon a throne covered with robes. On the Boor, on each side of him and behind, so as to form a semi-circle, sat a number of the officers" and guards. The Tycoon is a young man, apparently about twenty, dark and quite dignified looking. He was dressed in a long yellow silk robe, with his coat of arms (three leaves in a circle) worked all over it.
