We give elsewhere an abstract of the pro
ceedings at the Methodist General Confer
ence at Philadelphia, on Friday the tmenty*
second and last day of their quadriennial
session. This most important religions con
ference consists of delegates from 'fifty an
nual conferences, representing 0,022 church
cs or societies, and 018,C50 members, who
arc found in every frt c State, end in most of
.j the Border slave states, .At their late ses
•’ sion, os we have already published in our
/ columns, they took actlou, changing the
' rule on slavery and forbidding all slave hold
j- ing, and when it is passed by ihree-fouths of
, tbc »>nnual conferences, as it doubtless will
£ be, slavery will be entirely expelled from
Ibis ore of the Christian churches. Tbc
closing business of the body covers the
adoption of highly important and patriotic
resolutions on tbc state of the -country and
the vcr. The next session of the General
Asscmblv will take place at Chicago.
A Washington dispatch gives another
phase of the Arguellcs case, in a letter from
the Cuban Governor General to Secretary
Seward, stating that by the rendition and re
turn of (bis fugitive Spanish kidnapper were
liberated instantly eighty-five slaves. Look
for a fresh howl from the Copperheads. If
the return of tins Arguelles to Spanish soil
had refiistened the chains on a single nigger,
the party of Jeff Davis, North as well as
South, would have been delighted with the
act. Whenever a slave is to be returned to
hie master, no violation of the law can be too
flagrant to bring about such end. The pub
lic has not yet been made acquainted with the
grounds upon which the Cuban slave-trader
wus delivered up to the Government of his
country, but wc presume it was on the prin
dple that this country should not becometho
refuge of pirates. The laws of the United
Stales have branded tbe slave trade as piracy.
Whatever be tbe disposition of the case on
principles of International law, it is easy to
read at aglauce filial gives Hits most heinous
features in the eyes of the Negro-Driving
Element, who have lor ArgueUes a Idlow
feeling wondrous kind.
Many months ago, Mr. Lincoln, recom-
mended in bis message the construction, by
Government, for military purposes, of a rail
road connecting East Tennessee with the
outside world ou the West. The measure
foiled to become a law. The action of the
House yesterday is an endorsement, hand*
some, though tardy, of the sagacity and wis
dom of the President. With that line of
communication opened, loyalty is safe in
East Tennessee; without it, millions must
be expended In keeping up militaiy occu
pancy of that region during the war. It is
humanitarian as well os strategic, and, when
built, will stand as a monument ot l ir. Lin
coln's far-seeing wisdom.
The measure agreed upon by the Joint
Committee of Congress, allowing States to
tax the stock and capital of the National
Punks, p.issed the House yesterday.
Hundreds of loyal men will breathe more
freely, now that the protracted and noisy
travail of a few hundred malcontents is over,
and the Cleveland b.intllngia the arms of its
wet nurses. The real paternity of the off

the abortionists whose offices are now over.
The New York World, the Clnclnniti Enquir
er, the Chicago tool of Jeff Davis, Copper
heads aid Copperhead organs of all degrees,
have bayed and bellowed Cleveland Conven
tion until the cars of echo ore weary. Cop
perheads egged on this scheme. They have
even kindly loaned it a cheap man from their
own number to help at the Convention and
shore the dubious honors of a ticket thus
brought out.
It is an occasion lor congratulation that
the end has been reached. We believe it to
he equally a cause of chagrin and disappoint
ment to the Copperheads themselves. So
long as the event coold be held postponed,
and cumulative, so long as the future could
be kept big with an event upon which the
min ol the Republican party could be freely
predicated, so long as this now spent faction
at Cleveland could be maintained as a pros
pective element of discord at the Baltimore
Convention, so long It was excellent politi
cal capital for the Copperheads, though not
proportionately dangerous to the hopes of
the thousands who look to see Abraham Lin
coin renominated on that occasion.
It is all over. The ticket is in the field
There is no more to be looked for bat that
those who have brought Fremont and Coch
rane into the field fall to and support them.
The brew is a very small one; the baking
will not be heavy. And who are these men
w ho have been forward into this business ?
Every community from which their sparse
numbers, without form of authority, with
no credentials been drawn, can each
locate and understand their* own falsely
styled “representative,’’soreheads,lmplacable
unappeasable malcontents, scolds byprofes
fciou, with capabilities for fault-finding mns*
cnlarizcd by long practice. .
Their consistency to any other principle Is
shown by the fact that at one time they sit
to be wordily harangued by Kx-Brigadler.

two the question will lie, and this is mot the
time In which honest, patriotic men are will

pnt the sword in bis hand and set him at the
bead of our armies, now thundering at
the gates of the rebel capital? Has
not the rebellion been attacked in
Its chief seat of power? On the
score of platforms, where any platform can
he discerned In material eo in congruous, that
of Cleveland has no advantage. The griefs
of these men are mainly personal. Their
complaints have neither coherence nor con
sistency. At the polls they will find few
of their way of thinking, and this third
ticket will prove the weakest of all con
trivances ever bom of mixed forces to dis
turb and distract a canvass. Without hope
of securing its own election, it is happily
bereft of.the prospect that it can harm the
election it is expressly launched to defeat.
TZiclr Closing Business—Resolutions
on the sta.e of the Country—Final
Krw Yonx; May- 30.—At Philade’plun, on Fri
day, at tbe M. E. General Conference, the Bishops
were requested to apportion the probable expen
ses of the next General Conference (to be held at
Chicago) to each anneal Conference, and ll tbc
amount so apportioned la not raised, the Confer
ence frjllng shall forfeit Ita claim upon the book
concern for the expenses of the delegation. Reso
lutions were adopted recognizing district confer
ence organizations lor tbe pastors of colored peo
ple. . In reference to tbc Centenary Celebration, it
was resolved that It shall be celebrated by nil tbc
churches with thanksgiving, and that tbo services
shall commence on tbc first Tuesday of October,
1866. and continue through tbe month. Tbc re
port was read recommending tbc erection and en
dowment of one monumental institution especial
ly for missionary purposes. It wbnii include first,
in tbe city of New York, a haiL offices, museum,
and library for tbc use of the missionary society;
and, secondly, a department for the special prepa
ration of young men as missionaries. At tbe af
ternoon session, Her. D. D. Love was elected edi
tor of tbe Northern Christian Advocate, The
Committee on tbc State of tbe country reported a
series oi resolutions as follows:
SetdltetL, That, in this boor of the nation's
trial, we will remember tbe President of the Doi
ted States, all other officers of the Government,
and our annvand navy. In never-ceasing prayer.
Resolved, That it is the duty ol the Government
to prosecute the war with all its resources of men
and money till this wicked rebellion shall be sub
dued, the Integrity of the nation renewed, its
legitimate authority shall be re-established; and
that wo pledge «.ur hearty support ami co-opera
tion to secure this result.
Ee'dlred, That we regard our calamities as ro
sultluc from ourlorgoifulncss of God, and from
slavery, so long our nation's reproach, and that it
becomes ns to humble ourselves cud forsake oar
e‘i s as a people, and hereafter, in all our laws and
tets, to honor God.
Zfeofritf/ilia’.wewlQnsc our efforts to make
such c change In the Constitution of «ar country
as shall rccociilue the being of God, our ucoen
dcncc on Him for prosperity, aad also his Word
as the foundation ofdvillaw.
J?icro?«rf } Thn» we regard slavery as abhorrent to
tliC principles of oar holy religion, humanity, and
civilization, and that we are decidedly in favor of
fioefcan amendment to the Constitution, and such
legislation on the part of the States, as «h»n pro*
hjh’.t slavery or involuntary servitude, except for
crime, throughout all the Slates and Territories
of tte country.
Http red. That while we deplore the evils of war
that have filled our land with mourning, we rejoice
in the soliHmc manifestations of benevolence It
has developed, as seen in the Sanitary and Chris*
tian Commissions, and in the associations formed
to aid the vast multitudes who have recently be
come freemen, and that we pledge to their institu
tions onr hearty co-opcratlon and support.
The whole report, together with the resolutions,
was adopted.
The rejMttt of the Committee on the Christian
and Snmtsry Commissions was read and adopted.
Tne following resolutions accompanied the re
1. That this nation owes n debtor endless grat
itude to the Sanitary and Christian Commissions
for their iabon- in behalf of the sick and wounded
men of oor noble army and nary,
2. That the Christian Commission is especially
entitled to the cordial support and co-operation of
»he Cbnrcb of God, inasmuch as the work which it
aims to do is eminently Christian es well as hu
mane and patriotic, seeking to care both for the
not cel and the immortal, and prepare man for
all tbepenls that hover over the camp and the
neid ofblood.
8. That, as according to the estimate of our hon
ored senior Bishop, the Methodist Episcopal
Church has probably given one hundred thousand
of her membership to the army and navy, we feci
it to be our doty to follow them, not only with our
proyere and words of cheer, but with rxtive minis
terial labors; and we deem it right and desirable,
when there is a cell for men to care for the sick
and wounced,ahat our churches take such action
as will tend to furnish the due proportion of Chris
tian men. and especially Christian ministers, for
the holy work.
The reports of the Committee onj Temperance
and the Committee on Freedmen were read and
The following resolutions accompanied the latter
_ That in the events which have thrown
the thousands of freed people npou the benevo
lence of the humane and loyal people of the
North, we recognize a providential call to the
Christian public for contributions for their phy
sical relief, and mental and moral elevation, and
esjiccially to tbe Church of Christ for the means of
their evangelization.
/•’evolved, That the above named associations,
organized in behalf of the freed people, arc engaged
tu a woik of benevolence that we regard with spe
cial Interest, aud commend to the liberality of onr
people every where, as worthy of their sympathy
and rapport.
Jltto vtd. That the best interests of the fresd
mcn, and of the country, demand legislation that
«%ad lostcr and protect this people, and we hereby
• respectful I y hot earnestly urge upon Congress the
importance of establishing, as soon as practicable,

To Major General Six :
We have dispatches from Gen. Grant down to
yesterday (Monday) p. m.
There seemed, the dispatch says, to be some
prospect i3f Lee's making a stand north of the
Chickahominy. His forces were on the Meehan
icfville Bead. south of Totopatomy creek, between
that stream and Hawes* shop, his right resting on
Shady Grove. Dispositions for an attack were be
ing made by Gen. Grant.
Wilson's cavalry had been ordered to destroy
the railroad bridges over the Little river aud South
Anna, and break up both roads from those rivers
to two miles southwest of Hawes' shop, where
the head of onr army was established.
There is as yet no telegraphic line of common!
cation with Washington.
A dispatch from Gen. Sherman, dated yesterday
(BCtb), 8 a. m., reports no change in the position o

Major General Dix:
A dispatch from Gen. Grant, dated at 6 o'clock
this (Tuesday) morning, at Howes' shop, has just
been received. • It is as follows:
Tbe enemy came over on our left last evening,
and attacked ns. They were easily repulsed, and
with very considerable slaughter.
To relieve Gen. Warren, who was on the left,
speedily, Gen. Meade ordered an attack hj the
balance of ocr lines. Gen. Hancock was the only
one who received the order in time to make the
attack. Before dark, he drove the enemy from his
entrenched skirmish line, and still holds It.
I have no report of oar losses, bnt suppose them
to be light.
Other official dispatches not from Gen. Grant
were received at the same time, and which gave
more details. They are as follows, the first being
dated yesterday (Monday,) 30th. 8 p. m.;
In the afternoon Gen. Warren was pushed down
on onr left ijgtil his flank division under General
Crawford reached a point west of Shady Grove
Church. Gen. Crawford having got detached from
the rest of the corps, was attacked and driven back
a little. The enemy then threw a force, which
appears to have consisted of Ewell's corps, upon
Warren's left, attempting to turn It, hot was re
pulsed. The engagement was short, sharp and de
cisive. Gen. Warren holds his ground at advantage
setxk mii.es it.om Bjohmoxd. Be reports that he
has taken a considerable number of prisoners, and
hat there are many rebel dead on the field. Of
his own losses he has made no report. His latest
dispatches say the enemy are moving troops to bis
left, spparamly to clear the approach to Btchaond
In that direction.
On onr right an active conflict has been raging
ever since dark, but has just closed.
As soon as the enemy attacked the left of War

The other dispatch above referred to is dated at

the enemy out of a strongly intrenched skirmish

Edward Gilbert, of N.Y., who nominated ex-Qov

speech of considerable length, radiant with glit

enunciation of principles except opposition to the
Administration in its dealing with home traitors.
On this question he was clear and emphatic, and
might add also that he denounced In the strongest
language he knew how to employ, the conduct oi
the War Democrats of New York who met at Syr

vorite thcvie of Individual rights and the liberty of
the press without molestation or censorship were
also dwelt upon.
Amotion for a committee on platforms was
Hr. Elanghotta, of lowa, offered a brief series of
resolutions, that bo person connected with this
convention, or who should hereafter identify him
self with the party about to be created, ehonld ac
cept any office or any contract under the present
administration, except to enter the army or naval
service. The resolutions were received with
shouts of laughter and derision, a large majority
of the gentlemen present very evidently being
solicitous that action here should take any other
shape but that.
Adjenrncd until 2 p. m.
(Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cleveland, May 31—10 p. m.
The Convention reassembled at 3# o’clock p. m.
The Committee on the Platform not being ready to
report, speeches were called for. Hr. Pjumb, of
N. Y M Chairman of the New York Central Fre
mont Committee, who Is declared to be the oldest
Abolitionist in New York, with a single excep
tion, made a strong Abolition speech, giving a his
tory of the rise, progress and Anal success of that
great principle.
CoL Hose, of Missouri, followed and told many
big stories of what he and his friends toended to
do next November.
Tbe Committee on Boles and Regulations made
their report. One of the rules reported was that
the votefor President and Vice President should
be taken by States—each State casting a vote equal
to whst It is entitled to In the electoral college.
Caspar Butz opposed this rale, and claimed that
each member should be allowed to cast an Indi
vidual vote. Another gent favored the State vote,
os in that way States which bad a large number of
delegates would not be able to override the States
which had hot one or two representatives. After
discussing tho rale at some length it was stricken
out. .
Tbos. B. Carroll, of New York, from tbo Com
mittee on Resolutions made tbe report (sent by
tbe Associated Press 1
After tbe reading of the resolutions, a letter was
read from Wendell Phillips, ol Boston. Tbe letter
was almost a reiteration of. Mr. Phillips 1 speech
before the Union Convention at Boston last week.
The resolutions were then taken tip and acted
upon seriatim. '
Hon, Andrew J. Colvin, of New York, detailed
bis own political history. The first vote be ever
gave against tbe Democratic party was cast for the
late Gen. James Wadsworth, for Governor, in
ltC2; but he now felt that he could not vote for
Abraham Lincoln. He heartily endorsed the reso
lutions just offered to this Convention. Mr. Col
vin in bis speech made a statement entirely wide
of the truth. It was to tbe effect that no Conven
tion which had sent delegates to tbe Baltimore
Convention, nor any newspaper which support
ed the Administration, bad declared in
favor of the amemlmcn'. to the Consti
tution prohibiting slarery hereafter in any
or all of the States. He condemned the action of
the Administration In the cases of Ihe Journal of
Commerce and World, and the Argneßcs rendition
case. He characterized Ua action In these cases
as the most arbitary and unwarranted that ever
occurred in the history ol the newspaper press.
In conclusion be asked leave to suggest a name
for the Presidency which would carry the State of
NewYoik by one hundred thousand majority
that name was Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. The an
nouncement of Gen. Grant's name was received
with decided coolness by the audience, only three
or four persons clapping their bands.
On the passage of the first resolution a motion
was made that the words “ with God's blessing'*
be added to it. Tbe amendment was voted down
by two to one. By the pressure of the previous
question and positive manner of the presiding offi
cer the Resolutions were pushed through with race
hor& speed, allowing little or no opportunity for
amendment or discussion.
After tbe resolutions were adopted as a whole.
Cob Moss made a motion that the Convention pro
ceed at once to nominate candidates for President
and Vice President on the platform Just adopted.
Several delegates from New (Jersey, Pennsylva
nia and New York, opposed the resolution in very
strong terms.
A gentleman from New York, named Demans,
made a very powerful speech against the' resolu
tion.' He spoke nearly an boar ,in a most unan
swerable manner, against a nomination at this
time, and until the Baltimore convention. He
declared General Grant to be his choice, and
the choice of the war democracy of the Atlantic
Sfotes and that with him only was there any pos
ribillty of sqgcess: bat the Fremontera werejlarge
ly in the majority and were determined to make a
nomination, and of course the] powerful logic and
horning words of Ur. Deman’s fell upon listless
The resolution to make si nomination was car
ried by a large majority.
CoL Moss then moved that Major General John
Charles'Fremont bo nominated by acclamation as
a candidate for President oi the United States. It
was received with great applause, and declared
B. Grata Brown, Gen. Butler and Gen. John
Cochrane were named for Tice President. Genf
John Cochrane was nominated by acclamation.
7; An Executive Committee of one from each State
was then appointed and the Convention adjourn
. The War Democrats from New York, New Jer
sey and Pennsylvania are very indignant at the re
sult, and will Immediately absolve themselves from
any connection with the concern.

- On the motion to appoint a Committee on Cre
dentials, some debate occurred, several delegates
opposing it on the ground that there are many citi
zens present who represent political organizations
in the several States, and yet have been famished
with no credentials. The motion was withdrawn,
bnt renewed by Mr. Garrett, of Missouri, who
thought the time wonld come when every member
wonld be prood of his connection with this Con
vention, and he desired the record made In order
to show the world that we are here for a great
and good purpose, in spite of Lincoln ‘and the
' It was finally resolved to enroll the names of all

9he Chair appointed }*arker Plilsbury and Col.
Moss a committee to notify Gen. Cochrane of his
election and escort him to the chair.
Hr. Cochrane, returning thanks, said that the
duly ofthis Convention once performed in accord
ance with the views end wishes of the people
whom It represents. It will have advanced to a po
sition that must command universal applause, wo
are here occupying a common ground—that of the
broadest and most catholic principles of democ
racy. We are here not for party, but for country.
Three years ago, when the very life ol the nation
was threatened, all tree patriots dropped party
and rallied to the support of the country: but the
hour is coming—indeed, it has almost arrived—
when the rebellion will nave disappeared forever,
and then it is that a free people should review the
past, and mast erect the necessary saleguarda
against the vicissitudes and dangers of the future.
It Is at each a period that you have assembled,
and while with all the vigor and strength ofa great
Slo, actuated solely by love of country, and our
cs In the field, you are about to organize
a civil party at home to proclaim and main
tain, at all hazards, the great and immutable
principles for which the soldier is so valiiatly
lighting in the field.- Thus, and thus only, caa the
people ot the land realize and enjoy the legitimate
fruits of the sacrifices they have made. The rebel
lion must he effectually and forever suppressed.
The Union must he preserved. ■ We hive not met
here to indulge in any criticisms with a view to
weaken the government, and we are not here to
throw any impediments in the way of the march of
our glorious armies. God forbid 1 No delegate is
here to occnpy any position unworthy of the broad
estpatriotlsm, or the breast ofa tree American cit
izen. He saw before him men who, in days gone
by. entertained essentially different views on*the
question of slavery, hut events have so shaped
themselves with regard to that and other great
questions within the past two years, that all can
now stand upon common ground In regard to It.
The effect of the rebellion has been to destroy
slavery, and the last vestige ol it must be
wiped away. He almded to the meeting of the
War Democratic State Committee, at Syracuse,
and characterized It as an idle farce, as a commit
tee without a constituency, and assured the con
vention that the War Democracy of New York are
of sterner stuff' than to be swayed or affected by a
lew peddling pohticlano. While we proclaim all
men on this cent >nent free and equal, it is our doty
to see that each assertion is literally tree. We
must have close and untiring regard for the civil
rights of all; for if private rights ore not reicect
ed, public liberty foils—lts basis is private and in
dividual freedom—its method is through such
rights, and we therefore declare ourselves'emphat
ically acd unequivocally for private, municipal and
public liberty. Never, upon any plea or occasion,
can the rights of the citizen be suffered to ho iu
vrded unwarrantably and without due process of
If.w. Individual rights are modified bylaw. If
circumstances require the enforcement of martial
law, all other considerations must succumb to the
necessity; but till then they most not he
infringed upon, however specious the plea.
Law is the reflex of order —order Is
is of God. audit and its sanctity must ho kept in
violate. When that is stricken down, there go
with it our institutions, and all that Is inti
mately connected with these rights is the freedom
of the press: and the Administration or the man
who wonld aim a blow at it, legality of a crime bat
little lees than be who isatraltor tothccansa of his
country, lie alluded to the right of asylum, and
declared it to he a principle of which every Ameri
can ought to be proud, that the refugee from the
despotism of the old world is welcome to our
shores, and is to be presumed innocent until
proved guilty under the laws ol the free country In
which be seeks on asylum from oppression. He
spoke at some length in eulogy of the Moarocdoc
trine, saying that when wc have got through with
tho rebellion, as we soon shall be. wc will prove to
the world that we have left will and vigor enough
to preserve tho American continent from the pol
luting trend of the myrmidons of foreign powers.
General Cochrane was frequently cheered, and
resumed bis scat amid a storm of applause.'
A delegate from lowa offered a resolution that
each delegate pledge himself not to accept office of
trust, honor or profit from the Administration In
power during the next Presidential term, or be
connected, directly or Indirectly, with any Gov
.eminent contract—this prohibition not to be so
construed as to prevent any delegate from becom
ing an active combatant in the army or navy.
Tbcrresoiotion was referred.
The President announced the following Com
mittee on Resolutions:
Thomas B. Carroll, New York; K. Bewaon,
Massachusetts; Frauds Rodman, Missouri ; Bird
B. Chapman, Oi Jo; Dennis Gardiner. New Jersey;

John A. Willard, from the Committee on Resolu
tions, reported sundry rules for the government of
the Convention, recommending tbe rules of the
Iloosoof Representatives, and to take tho vote for
candidates according to tho representation in Con
Caspar Betz, of Illinois, opposed voting by
States according to Congressional representation,
and favored the proposition to allow each delegate
one vote.
Col. Hosa favored voting as a great National
Maes Convention, each individual to have canal

After debate, Ur. Gilbert moved to strike out

Mr. Carroll stated that tbe Committee were
unanimous on all tbo resolution's save tbe sixth*
os a matter of expediency it was thought advisa
ble not to recommend It, but tho majority of the
Committee had Instructed him to report It lor the
consideration ol the Convention.''
Atthis juncture, Mr. Gilbert announced there*
ceipt of a letter from Wendell Phillips, a synopsis
of which was telegraphed yesterday, and as it bad
somewhat to say of the platform that ought to be
adopted here, he moved that It be now read. Car
ried ; and the letter was warmly applauded while
being read by the Secretary,
Ur. Ransom, of N, Y., moved that the question
on resolutions be taken separately, .
A, J. Colvin, of N, Y., said that up to within two
years last past he had never voted any other than
a Democratic ticket. Two yean ago. upon the
Saestion of slavery and other great national ques*
one, he differed from his party, stepped oat and
voted for the lamented Gen. • Wadsworth Last
year he voted the Union ticket with the chairman,
Gen. Cochrane, npon it. He came to this
Convention because he couldn't at' the
coming election cast his vote for Abraham Lincoln.
He could not approve of the principles and policy
of his administration. He assented In the main
with the resolutions reported. Tho Union must
be preserved, and we must treat-slavery as dead,
never to be resumed. The Coostitation must be
amended in this respect. He would go for that
man for President who loyal to the* country,
and tine to the platform that shall he pat forth
here. He can bo elected beyond a doubt. There
is such a man—one who can carry the State of
New York over Abraham Lincolq by l00,00t) ma
jority. Lucius Robinson, Comptroller of New
York, unable to be present, had addressed him a
letter on this subject, which be read as-follows:
coMPTßoixm Eonrxson’s letter.

Albant, May 2S, .BGt}
To Hon. ,4. J. Colvin: ■ ‘
My official duties and Illness of my deputies will
prevent me from attending the meeting called for
. consultation at Cleveland on the Sist Inst. I trust
that you wiil be there to aid with your judicious
advice. There was never a time when the safety
and welfare of the country more Imperatively de
manded carcfbl deliberation with wise and reso
lute action. We have lived throagn three years
of war, and have survived many bad mistakes
simply because tbe popular mind has been intense
ly fixed upon the sinele purpose of suppressing
rebellion at all hazards and at any cost. This one
idea has had snch controlling power end the
masseshave followed itsosteadllythatit has served
as a substitute for proper governmental leader
ship, bnt It is evident that the time is near at naod
when there-estahlishment of order, tbe removal
of the cause ot the rebellion, and the repairing of
the terrible dessolation It has produced, will re
quire at the bead of the Government tbe very high
est qualities of leadership. How can we hope to
live as a nation through toe crisis before ns with a
weak Executive and Cabinet, in a state of discord
and anarchy ? 'WlUnot the conutrybe lu Immi
nent danger of falling into tbe same condition
when it ceases to beheld together by tbe pressure
oi war ? It appears to me that a firm assertion of
sound principles, and the election of our greatest
man, regardless of former party organizations are
essential to the safety of the nation.. Whether a
nominarion should be made at Cleveland or not,
can best be determined after meeting and consult
ing with those wlm wilt assemble there. But if it
should be deddedro nominate, I have no hesita
tion in saying that I believe tbe hopes of the peo
gle throughout the country are resting upon Qen.
rant as the candidate. He has displayed the
qnalltiea which give all men confidence. He has
hom himself possessed of great ability ana skfll.
the most Indomitable courage, ana most unselfish
devotion to the cause of his country. Victory has
attended him wherever he has gone. One year
ago all confidence in the administration was
lost The brilliant victories which have
since been won by General Grant
hare so far restored it as to encourage the admin
istration to attempt to re-elect itself on the
strength of bis achievements; but In my Judg
ment we should let him who has won the honors
wear them, and should entrust the power to one
who has shown that be knows how to wield it.
We shall then have a leader at the head of affira
In whom all loyalmen will have confidence, again*!
whom there will he no prejudices, and whom all
will aid with alacrity.
(Signed) L, Robinson.
It was then decided to take up the resolutions
separately. The first, second, third and fourth
were adopted without dissent.
Mr. Goodell moved to amend the 6th by declar
ing that slavery shall die, Instead of saying that It
is dead; ‘‘for/’ said the mover “although it I*
legally dead, the fact Is that there arc over three
millions of people now enslaved In the Southern
States/’ He moved to substitute these words:
“ That slavery must be suppressed by the destruc
tion of its motive canse —slavery,”
Lost after debate, and the resolution adooted.
The f.th, 7tb, Bth, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th
were then adopted.
. ‘Col. Moss moved that the Convention now pro
ceed to the nomination of candidates for President
and Vice President upon this platform. Carried.
Mr. Hansom moved to reconsider, believing
that It would bo belter policy to wait until after
the Baltimore Convention.
Mr„Dcnvers. of Troy, seconded the motion, be
lieving that any nominations at tiff? time would
he premature and calculated to defeat the very ob
jects of this convention.
Mr. D. continued at length in eulogy of General
Grant, and Insisted that It would be uuwlse and
unfair, if not suicidal, to press a nomination now.
Col. Moss moved that John C. Fremont be de
clared the nominee of the Convention tor President
of the United States.
Mr. Ransom moved an amendment that a nom
inating convention be held In Cleveland on the
first w edneaday In September, each State to have
a representative equal to that lu Congress. Lost
Only nine in the affirmative.
Mr. Powell, of Washington, moved to adjourn
over to the Radical Convention at Baltimore on the
sixth of Jane. Declared oat of order. •
The nomination of Fremont was then made by
Gen. Cochrane. B. Gratz Brown and Gen. Butler
were named for Vice President.
Mr. Cochrane sold, that It had been deemed wise
Jo choose him president of the convention. He
was satisfied with that honor, satisfied with the
proceedings, for be saw in them the establishment
of a great party, and henceforth he wonld be con
tent to labor, not for party success, bat for the
salvation of our country. Yesterday, lor the first
time, he bad beard hla name mentioned In the
Convention with the nomination for Vice Presl
•dett. He doubted the wisdom of each a choice;
It was his clear conviction that with sneha plat
form if the Convention wl’l take some gentleman
who is fairly Identified with the war worn Demo
cracy of the country, and place him side by side
with its chosen champion, it will establish a great
end glorious party whose principles founded upon
Truth, Justice and Freedom mast succeed. Heart
ily endorsing those principles he bagged leave to
Mr. Gilbert taking tho chair.
The oneetlon was put end the nomination of
Gw, Cochrane confirmed, with bat few voices in
the negative. ■
Meters. Gilbert, Moss, Grcmer, Butz, and John
son were appointed a committee to report a plan
ofparty organization, and a name for the party.
Recess till 9 p. m.
The committee not being prepared to report, a
meeting was organized by selecting Mr. Alilen lor
chairman, acd on Invitation Parker Pillsbaryad

• Washington, May 31,1:64.
The Richmond Examiner of Hay 23tli has the
following dispatches':
Ashland, Hay 27.— Our army is moving rapidly
on lines almost parallel with the route which Grant
Is following. At 13 o’clock to-day a heavy force of
the enemy appeared at Hanover Court House, and
were pressing our cavalry back*at that point.
Atlanta, Ga., Hay 37.—Our advance came up
with the enemy at New Hope, four miles
east .of Dallas at noon on Wednesday.
Hood’s corps was Arst in the fight. Parts oi
two divisions, Stevenson’s and Hindman’s, only
were engaged. We bad but one line ol battle,
which the enemy charged twice, and were hand
somely repulsed. A private note from Gen. John
ston’s headquarters at sunrise yesterday, says that
the affair of Wednesday afternooff was handsome*
We are having a renewal this morning. General
Cumming* issevcrely wounded in the breast and
arm. Gen. Reynolds is woonded slightly.
Atlanta, May 27.—Letters from a press re
porter on tho field say operations yesterday morn
ing were confined to skirmishing and the enemy
feeling oar position. Oar right rests on the road
from Ackwortb to Balias, about three miles north
east of New Hope Church, and extends from the
latter point nearly west. The movements of tbe
enemy continue to extend towards our right, in
dicating a disposition to get near Etowah river
and tbe bridge.
Firing was heard this morning but died away
The Examiiur editorially says that Grant has
been defeated and ontgenerallcd ever since be
crossed tho Rapidon. Of the situation it says it
appears to be known at least that both armies are
moving. Grant Is reported to have crossed the
Pamunky at Hanovcrtown, and to be moving
down probably for a point known as Pippin Tree]
lu New Ecnt'coanty, some 15 or 16 miles from
Richmond. All movements of Lee it would
not be prudent to speak, but our readers may be
well assured that he has his eye upon his adver
sary, and will be prepared for him whenever and
wherever he may show himself. Leo has never
been surpassed or outgeneraled, and it Is not
likely he will be in this instance.
Tbe Examiner admitted the repulse ol Fltzhagb
lee’s attack upon Gen. Wild’s position on James
river. It says so formidable and complete were
tbe enemy’s fortifications that we are told by an
officer who participated in the affair that it would
have taken oar men two hoars to get Into their
works had there been not a man Inaide of them.
Tbe Examiner says bakers have advanced the
price ol their loaves from one dollar to one dollar*

Mr. FOOTE presented the credentials of Mr.

Mr. DAVIS, of Ky„ submitted the following:
Whereas, It has been frequently charged In the
public prints and other modes, that when the lead
ers of the presentirebelhon were engaged in plot
ting and maturing it, Beniamin F.. Butler was
cognizant of and privy to their trea
sonable purposes, and gave them his
countenance, sympathy and support, and that
be, said Butler, after some of the rebel
States bad published ordinances of secession,
turned against the conspirators who had been sus
taining him to get position and office under the
Government of the United States, to enable him
to consumate hla own personal and corrupt ob
jects. and that after bo was appointed to a com
mand, and whilst be was acting ia the military
service, he was, by himself and his accomplice, H.
J. Butler, and many others, guilty of many acts
of fraud, speculation, and embezzlement against
the United States, and many acts of plunder,
spoliation, oppression nod cruelty 'against indi
viduals. Therefore bo it
Baolud, That the President of the Senate ap
point a Committee of three to investigate all such
charges against the said Butler. That the sold
Committee have the power to sit during the recess
or the Senate, to send for persons and papers, and
that U report all testimony audits proceedings to
the next session of the Senate.
The Internal Revenue bill came np. '
Mr. McDOUGALL, of Cal., addressed the Sen
ate at some length In opposition to Mr. Sherman’s
amendment striking down the State currency.
The amendment wasTcjected—Ayes ii. Nays 23.
The following amendments moved by Mr. Clark,
of N. H., representing the Finance Committee,
were adopted:
A provision deferring the operations of the tax
on Indfermatcoes till Sept. Ist, which shall then
pay an increased tax on all manufactured bat not
Gn photographs so*small in that a stamp
cannot be affixed, a tax of Gperwut ad valorem.
On all bpirits thac’migbc be id the possession ot
the distiller on the first day of June, October and
January, manufaclcrra bn* not removed, and on
which no tax has been paid, the tax lu the bill
tball he paid.
A provision to Divide auctioneers into classes:
First, those whose sales amount to SIG,IiOJ. Sec
ond,those whoso sales amount ro more than SI,OOO
and reducing the license of the former from $29 to
The same principle was made to extend to those
products of manaiactnrcs upon which no duty had
been paid persona to tho 9fth section.
Mr. POWELL made an attempt to redace the
tax on oil made from coal, and strike out the duty
on coal from which the oil la distilled, bat tilled.
He then moved to insert a provision In favor of a
new section abolishing the fishing bounties.'
Mr. MORRILL, of Vt., opposed the amendment,
showing the measure to be national other than
local, snd necessary to encourage apprenticeship.
He referred to the persistent efforts of the Sena
tors from Kentucky, apparently and even avowed
ly undertaken from motives or hostility to New
Mr. DAVIS, of Ky., objected to the impugnment
of hfs motives.
Hr. HORRILL responded that he (Davis) had
expressly assigned hostility as a motive, and re
ferred to hla (Davis') repeated and virulent attack
upon New England of late, notwithstanding the
fact that he had within the last two vears extolled
In terms that might almost be considered fulsome,
the marve’ous industry, the matchless commerce,
and the distinguished love of learning, letters
and arts, of the country ho now
affected (o despise and hate. He reftxteiLHr.
Powell’s charges of cupidity and greed agSf-ut
New Edgland by historical testimony of eminent
Southern men. He enlarged on national charac
teristics and great practical benefits of this coun
try, and dosed with a parallel between Hassicbu
setts and Kentucky In its material support of the
w*r, showing a great defidency in the account of
Kentucky amounting to many millions of dollars
Hr. HOWE, of Wis., replied, taking the same
exception to the alleged unfairness of the West.
At 4:80 p. m. the Senate took a 'recess until 7
o’clock. e , 3 : -
Debate occurred on Ashing bounties. The ques
tion of Hr. Powell’s amendment abolishing boun
ties was rejected—ll against 2L
Washington, Hay 31, 13*4.
The House passed a bill in order to carry into
effect Consular Conventions with Francs. Sardinia
and other nations. It provides that Consul Gene
rals, Consuls, and Commercial Agents shall have
jurisdiction over the officers aud crews of the ves
sels of their respective countries In foreign waters,
in cases of controversy respecting wages ana’
other subjects.
The bill incorporating the People’s Pacific Rail
road and Telegraph Co. was passed by 74 to 50.
The House then proceeded to the consideration
. of the Ohio and East Tenn. Military Hall rend.
Hr. SCHENCK, of Ohio, who repotted t9e bill
from the Military Committee, said that this subject
bad attracted the attention of the military authori
ties from the commencement of the war. The
concurrent recommendation of all the Generals in
the West la that the road is an absolute necessity
to keep up the communication between the Valley
of the Ohio and East Tennessee. Besides, this
was a great humanitarian measure, connecting the
people of East Tennessee with the loyal parts of
Mr MALLORY, of Ey., advocated the bill, look
ing upon tho proposed road as most important for
military purposes and the service of tho United
Stetcs and of the people, long after the war should
Mr. SMITH, of Ey., spoke of it as one of tbo
strongest bonds of the Union, and as a means of
savingmiliions ofdollars to the Government, apart
from its humanitarian Influences.
Tbe bhl was then passed by SI to 56.
. Mr. STEVENS, or Pa., called up the bill incor
porating tbe People’s Pacific Railroad and Tele
graph Company, and giving alternate sections of
land toward the construction of tbe line, which
was to extend from Lake Superior to Puget’s
Sound by the Northern mate. The bill was passed.
Tbe House took from tbe Speaker’s table tbe bill
proposing to tbe several States an amendment to
tbo Constitution of the United States, which,
when ratified by the Legislatures of three-fourths
of the States, shall be voted to all Intents and par
poses ns a part of said Constitution, viz:
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, ex
cept in tho punishment of crime, of which the
parly shall be dnly conticted,.shall exist within
the-united States, or In any place within their
jurisdiction. Congress shall have power by ap
appropnate legislation to carry the foregoing arti
cle Into effect.
Hr. HOLMAN, of Ind., objected to the second
reading of the bill, and so under tbe question oc
curred shall it be rejected- Tnis was determined
in tbe negative, by Yeas 55, Noes 76.
Mr. WILSON, of lowa, in response to inquiries,
said it was cot his intention to press the bill to a
vote to-night. He would allow a reasonable time
for debate.
Mr. MOONS, of N. Y., addressed the House iu
favor of the passage of the bill, arguing that as
slavery was the cause of onr present troubles there
can be no permanent peace until the wicked
devils are cast out, and homogenousness through
-obt tbe country secured.
Too house then took a recess until 7:SO o'clock,
