the inhabitants of a besieged city hoping ; i
for succors—the Pilgrims in the Mayflower ,
sfrahung their eyes for the distant shore—‘ ,
the shipwrecked mariner peering into the ;
distance for a friendly s^l—the rider in the
dreary desert expeeting to come upon an J
css’s—the slave of misfortune and victim j
of despair waiting for the kindly sum- j

never, when looking and waiting for the !

The so-called Peace Convention we have '
rrgnrdcd, from the first, as a very harmless
affair, so far as the nation is concerned,
and danserous only to such Northern mem
bers of that body as might be influenced
by the pro-slavery atmosphere of Wash
ington to prove false to their. principles
and to misrepresent the people who sent
them there. Now that its action is before
the country and the members have gone
home, vre sec no reason for reversing that
opinion. We have no£ the least idea in the
worl d that the propositions adopted by tiiit
informal and extra-constitutional assem
blage will gel through either branch of Con
gress by the constitutional majority; and
even should so improbable an event occur,
the people would give them a lasting quie
tus upon the first opportunity. Slavery and
latter-day Democracy have done much to
debauch the moral sentiment of the coun
try, but there is enonga of virtue yet re
maining to prevent"*such an alteration of
the Constitution as will open through its
agency new fields to slavery, and incorpor-
ate into that instrument a full recognition
of property in man. These propositions
■n il’ doubtless sink out of sight with the
expiration of the thirty-sixth Congress;
and with them will pass to an oblivion no
less profound, the. Northern men who,
against their own convictions of right, over
awed by the threats of traitors, weakly vo
te! for that which was abhorrent to their
i odgment and their consciences. .
It will be Been by reference to our Wash
ington letter, published in another column,
that the first seciion of the proposition said
to have passed, did not receive a majority
of the votes of the Peace Conference.
There were twenty-one Slates represented
in that body, and the vote was by States.
Oae State did not vole, three were lied, and
of therein inder, nine voted for and eight
against the section. Among the States re
pelled tied, was Sew York. The follow

Such is the history of this poor abortion;

which it was said to have been carried was
obtained by disfranchising the State of

Twelve States refused tb‘sanction the propo

tbc treachery of Mr. Tamer. The evening be

in the negative. Bat • during the night a mys
terious change came over the spirit’ of Mr;
Turner’s dream, and, lo I bn the morning he
ranged himself on the side of the slaveiyex
tensionists. The success of Kellogg had been
so brilliant that it excited his envy, and he re
solved to digin the hole where the member
from the Fourth District had found so rich a
reward for hia labors.

I The clause of the Constitution on the sub- i
I jeet reads as follows:
"The Congress, whenever tusoJhird* of both

amendments to Uls Constitution, or, ob the appli

tntion, when ratified oy the Legislatures qf thru
fourth* of Vie several States, or by Contentions In
three-fourths thereof, asihtineor the. offttr mode
of ratification may be proposed by the Congress.
The House spent all day yesterday, coheid- i
cring the various schemes of compromise
which have been hatching all winter. The ;
first thing voted on was the substitute .oi l
Burch and and Stout’s, of California aud Ore- i
iron, to the Corwin resolutions, recommending j
to the several States to call a National' Co
nvention, to revise the Constitution, it was

The next thing voted on was Kellogg & res- j
olutions—-that famous scheme-which, was U> j

stood:—ayes, thiri-l-three; uoca, one hundnd |

i and South Americans voted for them. The ;
emphasis with which the Republicans shouted :

refreshing—particularly to the author of the 1
resolutions. He got up and made an urgent *
appeal to be -permitted to withdraw them, but i
the word ‘‘object,’* “object.” was shouted j
from all parts of the House. Never was the j
teal of repudiation more indcllibly stamped j
upon any thing than on the misbegotten pro- .
geoy of the gentleman from the Fourth Dls- ]
trict. To describe his feeling? s of anger and j
mortification wouldhe impossible. The enu-1
clsms of “ Chicago” .were vindicated, and he

Constitution, the principal object of which is
to give treater security to the Institution of

The ver? statement of the design of the pro
: i)Oscd amendments suggests at once a decisive
objection to adopting item. We are satisfied
with the Constitution as it stands, and in our
Judgment the slaveholders ought to be. The
• ouly reason for altering it now is, that if it be
. left unchanged, slavery may be excluded from
i xew Mcxlm and Arizona. Notwithstanding
; that all the iafiuer.ee of the two last administra
' lions was exerted to establish It in Kansas, it
- hes been, after a violent struggle, excluded

: partial administration, such as Mr. Lincoln’s

' The fine new edifice of Trinity Church, on
Jackson street, between Wabash and Michigan
avenues, is rapidly approaching completion,
and it is uow confidently anticipated it will be
entirely finished and ready for occupancy by
thefirstofMay, We paida visit to this Church
on Saturday, and found the work upon its in
terior so far advanced that the fresco painters
were busy upon the decoration of its walls.
This part of the labor is being performed In
admirable taste, and bids fair to become an ex
cellent specimen of the art. The printers and
gramers were also at work,'. The shy-lights and
windows of stained glass are finished and in
their places, and to-day upholsters ‘ and
furnishers arc to commence operations on the
pews. When out of the • contractor’s haiids,-
this will he one of the largest churches in the
city, and everything about it, inside and out,
will be in admirable taste. .
fe Threa.things, in connection with the erection
of Trinity’a new church edifice, are worthy of
especial mention. First, it will, be promptly
finished within the time mentioned in the con
tract, and will cost no more,tima was:esti
mated In the commencement, $50,000; second,
the building will be paid for when done; third,
it wfll be the bast building ever put up for tbc
money—we might almost say double the
money. Much of the success,'attending this
business of building Trinity Church, is due the
extreme care and perfection with which the
drafts were drawn, and the nnmeroua specifi
cations made, by the architect, Mr. "NVadskier.

< The Chicago Art-Union Distribution—
j Committee’* Final Report,
We, the undersigned, members of the com
mittee of the Chicago Art Union, at a final
meeting on the evening of March Ist, to make
j arrangements for the drawing of the prizes of
i fered by the Union, after due consideration ol
: ail the facts and circumstances, make the fol
i lowing report:
: That owing to the serious political trouble?
, 1 of the country, which have influenced and die
[ arranged the monetary affairs of •community,
we ammuucc with regret that the first expert
. meat of our local artists to get up a success
j fill enterprise of this description, has not beet
1 as successful as was expected, and as, under |
' different circumstances, we are satisfied it
’ I would have been. About one-third of the
; eight hundred tickets remain unsold, and if
! ali' the tickets should be drawn, and all the
[ contributions of pictures and statuary of the
artists should remain among the prizes, the
’ artists would bo heavy losers by the enter
prise •—and feeling sure that the people of
Chicago are not willing that these hard work
* lag and meritorious artists, not being able to
' afford the sacrifice, shall lose so much, we
j . have unanimously determined that 213 of the
. BJO tickets (worth §639) less—-than the num
ber remaining unsold—shall be withdrawn
_ . from the scheme, and that $639 of the least
y ' valuable and least desirable of the prizes shall
» also be withdrawn, chief among which ifwthe
e portrait of Maj. Harris, valued at S3OO, the
tx .. rest being among the least valuable of the
. ■ prizes originally advertised.
£ \ This arrangement, though reluctantly adojK
; ted, we deem, under all the circumstances, T jD
: be tho most just.and equitable to aU<Kin
cerned, for with this withdrawal of tickets ’ ind
prices in due proportion, there.will rerjjain
one chance for every eight tiekde, and those
chances are now really more valuable, be- muse
the prizes are really more desirable.
Trusting that this arrangement will meet
with the general satislaetion of the ticket
holders, we proceed to state the final determi
nation of the committee as to the dr/fwing of
the scheme. The drawing will take place at
Hosier’s Gallery, 113 Lake street, , on next
Monday evening, March 4th, at 8 o’clock. Five
hundred and eighty-seven numbered tickets
will be placed in a box, and a child U to be se
lected from among the audience to draw out.
the tickets—the firet number thus drawn to
be entitled to the first prize, and the second to
the second prize, and so on till the seventy
•arizes shall be drawn. P<irsons desiring to
purchase tickets for cbancep may still do aoby
calling at Heeler’s Gallei*y during Monday.
None but ticket holders entitled to
admission to the drawingonHfcday evening.
In behalf of the artist^we Bfeirfc to thank -•
Mr. Hesler, for his kindness in giving his Gal- : “
lery for the purposes of this Exposition—to «
the friends of Art in Chicago for their kind e
encouragement—and to the city press for . £
their cheerful co-operation in the enterprise,; J?
which was designed mainly and entirely to ‘ f ;
create a more active interest in Art matters in ®
onr midst. *
The tmderslgned committee have no perso- J
nal interest in this'enterprise, bnt have acted £
at the request of the artists, and solely from °
an erimeat desire to encourage meritorious
members of a worthy profession, whose labors, *
discouragements and rewards comparatively v
but few of the popular masses understand or
, appreciate. And knowing that the drawing • *
lon Monday evening will be conducted with all I
i fidmees and honor, here onr part in the affair, J
i ends. ■ _ ®

Seventh Annual Report of the Ladle*’
Industrial School Association.
• "While other benevolent organizations have
boon brought more prominently before, the
public mind, and thus insured a larger shore
of interest and attention, we have been quietly
pursuing onr onward course, we trust, with
no diminimition of that zeal, or devotion,
which we have ever felt in this important
; In presenting the Seventh Annual Report of
this Association, we arc, by the blessings of
God, able to say, that in reviewing the past
year, we can seo more directly than ever bo-
for? the results of oar labors in the wonderful
transformations that are going on in the out
ward appearance and habits,as well as the mor
al character, of the children under our charge,
• As we look upon these little ones, and think
how soon, how very soon, they will occupy re
spective places among the men and women of
Chicago, and what their influence may be for
;goodot evil,'" just in proportion as they are
cared for, or neglected now while suscepti
ble to kind words and gentle teachings—we
are greatly encouraged to perseverance, and
continued effort in their behalf..
It wns a beautiful and appropriate remark,
recently made by one of onr devoted teachers,
“I have sought pleasure in many ways, but in
nothing have I ever found such true and last
ing enjoyment, as in the thought that I was
doing good to these needy ones." Will not
the sentiment And an echo in many a heart—
: for whore,we ask,is a wider and a nobler chari
ty than this, which commences, as it does, at
■ the very foundation of evil ? During the great
er part of the last year we have maintained
: four industrial schools, one in the South Divis
ion, two in the North Division, and one in the
West Division of tie city.
The one on Liberty street, in the South Di
vision, is under the care of our former
efficient and faithful teacher, Miss- Olive B.
Davis. The-whole number of names registered
is 300; average attendance 70, and a port of the
time 100. These scholars are many of them
irregular in attendance, an evil for which we
have as yet found no remedy, or none which
would meet the exigency of the case, but
through the patience and kindness of their
teacher, they make slow, but yet very decided
improvement. Most of the children in this
school are bright, intelligent and interesting-;
quick to learn, and show, in many ways, that
their hearts ore tender and pliable—but yet,
such was their situation, that all, or nearly all
of them, would have had no educational ad
vantages whatever, but for this enterprise.
“ I have,” says Miss Davis in her recent re
port, “ given more religions instruction the
pest year than ever before, and tried to teach
these children - the way to Jesus. In many
cases I think they try to live right and do
right, as nearly os they can under the influ
ences around them.”
We have Been, ■with grateful hearts, the
effects of these teachings exerted through the
little ones, upon the families with which they
are connected. Who can fully appreciate the in
centives .to good citizenship given to onr ris
ing population through this medium.
The school on Bremer Avenue, in the Kortb
Dlv'iaon, Is still under the charge of our highly
v/Jued teacher. Miss McLean, who has been so
J ong identified with that school. From her
report to the Board we quote the following
‘ l The attendance for the last three mouths
has averaged from 70 to 80; during the former
part of the year about 100. The progress of
the scholars, all drawbacks considered, is even
better than might be expected. Onelittleboy
has failed but three times in the lost year; a
a little girl has failed but once in the same
time. One large boy, who is able to be in
school bat a email portion of his time, com
menced last winter in the primer and is now
able to read in the Fourth Reader, and has ad
vanced as Cur as long division in practical
• arithmetic. The progress of the scholars,
either individually, or as a class, taken from
; day to day, appears very slow, particularly in
comparison with what wo would desire, but
[ when the progress of the year is considered,
[ there indeed seems reasonfor thankfulness and
t encouragement. But it is to he hoped that
mere mental culture is not all these children
i vwU acquire. It is my earnest prayer that the
; Bfble instruction which they daily receive and
are taught to practice, may be the means of
their salvation. One of the members of my
school has during the past year been taken
away by death. It was daring the vacation,
-at a time when I was in severe affliction, so
'that £ did not see him, but I was afterwards
-told that the sweet hymns and verses which he
had learned in school were his comfort and
: delight in his hours of suffering, and wo fond
i ly hope that he has gone to dwell with his
» Saviour.”
i There Is one feature In this school on Bre-
I mer Avenue, which we deem worthy of pass-
I ing notice. Some fifteen or twenty boys, be
f tween fourteen and eighteen years of age, are
< enrolled among Miss McLean’s scholars. Most
of them have some employment a portion of
their time; a few of them are engaged in cut
ting ice in the season for it; but their leisure
days, and they sometimes find two or three
each week, are spent in school, making efforts
. to improve themselves which are highly com
The school on the Sands, in the North Divi
sion, was suspended during the summer, hut
the increasing demand for a school in that lo
cality Induced the Board of Managers to re
open it on the 10th of December, Having em
ployed Miss M. E. Stevens to take charge of
the some. The whole number of names regis
tered is 70; average attendance, about 53,
The school in the West Division is under the
, exclusive management of the ladles in that
port of the city. The following report from
their Secretary has been very kindly forward
u The managers of the West Side Industrial
School report that it is now in a flourishing
condition, and they are encouraged to hope
that it will be sub tamed throughout the year
and until there are no longer any neglected
little ones needing the care and attention of
strangers. The funds for sustaining this school
have been obtained through the efforts of col
lectors, appointed by the Society, with the

rously given by Rev. Mr. McKaig, and a straw
berry festival. Mrs. Wills, who has labored so
faithfully as a teacher, has been obliged on ac
! count of ill health to rdeign her situation, and
; Miss Jennings has been appointed in her place.
Ail are invited to visit this school, for the man

be known to be appreciated.”
The report of the late teacher, Mrs. S. T.
Wills, contains matters of much interest, and
we present it in full *.
“During the past year SOI names have been
registered; 45 sent to public schools, 8 to the.
Reform school, and aeveralhave been supplied
with situations. The parentage of the chil

Onr school wus prosperous up to the fif
teenth oflast Hay, at which time it was closed
for want of funds to carry it on. It was re
opened on the first <bf October, and after spec
ial efforts had hetti put forth, it assumed its
old position, ami proves to be an overflowing
fountain of good m the neighborhood where
it is located. A good old Christian lady, who
has lived for years in the vicinity, says, ‘Bho
blesses G.od that ever such a school was start
ed, for /she has lived in peace since its open
ing, and can testify to Its' transforming in
fluence on the whole surrounding community.*
Wa might give many other evidences, but
Vhat more is necessary ? Are not the prec
ious words of Jesus taken over, and over
, again to many an ungodly home by our little

void? Shall it not accomplish that for which
It was sent ? Onr Sabbath SchooL under the
efficient superintendence qfMr. E. S. Warner,
continues to be a success, and there is at
present much-interest among the children.
Several, we believe have passed from 4 death
onto hie.* A sweet little girl told a teacher
one day, ‘ Before I came to this school I did
not know God, but now I know him.* 4 What
do yon know about God?’ she was asked. 4 I
know he Is my Father; and that ho 'loves me
so much that he gave his only Son to come In
to the world to die for me.’ ‘ And this is life

We do not expect in so brief a space to give
an adequate conception of what fuu bem, and
still may be done by this Association. -Wo
have ever felt that with larger means at onr
command we could greatly widen bar sphere
pfpeeftiJnces, We tiwik thosofrieadrwhQ
have so generously aided us hitherto, while at
the same time we ask, not only for a eonftnu
once, but ah increase in their noble contribu

companying Treasurers report, those who
have given to this charity will see that their
money has been judiciously appropriated, and
may it return to them four-fold. It is not
necessary to recapitulate; our objects are well
known and. appreciated by this community;
our Association embraces every denomination
of Christiana. All are alike solicited lor rid,
encouragement and sympathy, and invited to
interest themselves os far as may be, both in
i dividmUly and otherwise, in this blessed work.
It is particularly desired that ladies who are

each week to the visiting of these schools,
and teaching the girls lo sew, will volunteer
their names to any of the beard of managers,
who will be most gratefnl for their assistance.

A Card.
Editors Tribune The letter to Simeon
Honck, published in Saturday’s Democrat, ex
plains itself, and was given in good faith,
without political or other consideration. I
have known Mr. Houck for about two years,
asabuUdor of sewers, he having a permit
from the Sewerage Boa:d for that purpose.
He had done several jobs for me, and was in
good reputation with his neighbors. He was
believed by them to be an honest, hard work
ing mechanic. After due inquiry, believing
him to be such, I gave him the letter, he ex
fecting thereby to obtain a proffered position,
may have been deceived, but my motives were
correct; and perhaps the motives of those are
good who are trying to make a little political
capital out of the man’s present position, and
my letter. Yours,
C. N. Holden.
Severe Pall.—Mr. Allen Howes, a commis
sion merchant on South Water street, fell from
the derated sidewalk in front of the Tremout
House, on Friday evening, and was severely
hurt in his back and head. He was leaning
against the temporary railing of- the walk
when it suddenly gave way, precipitating him
a distance of about eight feet, full upon a pile
of stones and timbers. His escape from dan
gerous wounds was vciy narrow.
