Hale. the report. The following is the report of the Commit tee on Rules: , , To the Honorable the President and mem bers of the Republican National Conveu Your committee to whom was referred the matter of rales and order of business, beg leave to submit the following rules and order of business for the government of the con vention: . .. „ Upon all subjects before the convention, the States shall be called in alphabetical ord er, and next the Territories and District of Columbia. Each State shall be entitled to double the number of its Senators and Repre sentatives in Congress, according to the date of apportionment, and each 1 erritory and the District of Columbia shall be entitled to two votes. The votes of each delegation shall be reported by its chairman, l ue ■ re port of the Committee on credentials shall be disposed of before the report of the Committee on platform and resolutions is acted upon, and the report of the Committee on platform and resolutions shall be disposed of before the Convention proceeds to the nomination of candidates for President and \ ice-Piesi In making nominations for President and Vic .-President, in no case shall the calling of the roll be dispensed with. When it shall appear that any candidate has received a ma jority of the votes cast, the President of !•' convention shall announce the question to be, shall the nomination of the candidate be made unanimous ? Rut if no candidate shall have received a majority of the \otes, the chairman shall direct the vote to be again taken, which will be repeated until some can didate shall have received a majority of the votes cast. . When any State shall have announced its vote, it shad so stand until the ballot is an nounced, unie»« in case of numerical error, when a majority of the delegates of any two States shall demand that a vote be recor ded, the same shall he taken by States, '1 er ritorics and the District of Columbia, the Secretary calling the roll of States and Ter ritories in the order heretofore stated and the District of Columbia. In the records of the votes b}' States, the vote of each State, Terri tory and District of Columbia, shall be an nounced by the Chairman, and in case the votes of any State, Territory or District of Columbia shall tie divided, the Chair man shall announce the number of votos cast, for any candidate, or for or against any proposition. When the previu >s question shall be demand ed by the delegates from any States and the demand seconded by two or more States, and the call is sustained by a majority of the con vention, the question shall then be proceeded with and disposed of according to the rules of the House of Representatives in similir cases. The rules of the House of Represen tatives shall he the rules of this convention so far as they are applicable and not incon sistent with the foregoing rules. A Republican National Committee shall be appointed to consist of one member from each Territory and district represented in this convention. The roll shall be called, and the delegation from each State, Terri tory and district shall name through their chairmana person to act as a member of such committee. Stillman of New York gave notice of a proposed amendment providing for half an hour recess after each ballot. Ha Je moved to strike out that portion of the rules providing that there shall be no nomi nation until after the platform is disposed of. He briefly sustained his amendment, urging that when the organization of this convention is completed, it proceed at once to nomi nations. Hotchkiss, of New York, said in 1860 the Republican Convention made its platform be fore it named its candidates. It is aburd to put a man on horseback before you get you horse. [ Applause.] We may make a plat form that will reduce the number of candi dates. [Applause.] Haynes, of Ohio, said in 1860 the platform was reported before the candidate was nomin ated. He concurred in the absurdity of making a candidate before the platform was agreed upon. It might turn out that he was not fitted to it. Cesna said that if we nominate candidates before we make a platform, half the dele gates will he on their way home before the platform is presented, and there will be no proper deliberation. John T. Ensore, Chairman of the Commit tee on credentials, reported full delegations present, except from iSorth Carolina and Nevada, which were each one short. Cessna remarked that he learned that ne' ther delegation from the District of Colum bia was regular, and moved to amend the re port by substituting the name of Fred. Doug lass for that of Bowen, thus giving each of the contesting del gâtions one vote. A Virginia delegate contended that there was no evidence sustaining Cessna's claim of irregularity. Bowen and Green charged that Cessna's suggestion was prompted only because Doug lass sympathized in his own view as to can didates. Ensore certified that the committee was nearly unanimous in the decision that the Bowen delegation was entirely regular. Cessna, amid great confusion, withdrew his motion. The report of the committee on all points, save the Alabama case, was then adopted. The question recurring on the Alabama case, Ensore replied to the argument of the minor ity report, which claimed that the majority had no facts to sustain their report. The minority had presented an overwhelming ar ray of facts to sustain their report and the majority could not dispute them. Atkins, of Georgia, followed for the min ority report. Wisconsin moved the previous question, which was sustained. A vote on the adoption of the minority re port was taken and resulted—yeas, 354, nays 37.», so the minority was objected to. RESOLUTrONS. Hawley, from the Committee on Resolu tions, submitted the following report: is is in it the tol the E and out the ing as Mr. President .—You must be aware that your Committee on resolutions, upon assem bling, found itself constituted of men of some what differing sentiments and widely sep arated localities, and mostly straDgers to each other. We have in general agreed upon the sentiments we are about to present to you, and respectfully submit it for your consider ation and for your amendment if you choose. It is as follows : When in the economy of Providence this land was to be purged ot human ulavery, and when the strengtn oi the government of tne people, by the people, lor the people, was to be demonsu-atea. the Republican by ur/ii mv*»*v*"-Q — —-—' —— -—o ..I country and mankind, and looking to the future witn unfaltering courage, nope and purpose ,we, thejepre sentatives ot the party, in the National Convention assembled, do make the following declaration ot principles : . 1.—The United States of America is a natyon not a league by the combined workings ot the National and feta"e governments under their respective constitu tions, the rights of every citizen are secured at home and protected abroad, and the common weltare pro moted. , , 'A—The Republican party has preserved those gov ernments to their hundreutb anniversary ot the na tions birth; they are now embodiments of the great truths «pukeu at its cradle ; that ail men are created equal; that ihey are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, lib erty and the pursuits ot h; ipiness; that tor tile at tainment ot these ends governments ha\e been insti tuted amo.-g men deriving tbeir just powers troni the consent of the governed until these truths are eheer tuli. obeyed.

We therefore note with deep solicitude that the Democratic party counts as its cuiet hope of success upon tne electoral vote of the united South, procured through the efforts of those who were re cently arrayed against the nation, and we invoke the earnest attention of the country to the grave truth that a success thus achieved would reopen sectional strife and imperil the national honor and human rights. 16 . —We charge that the Democratic party as being the same in character and spirit as wnen it sympi£ thized with treason, with making its control of the lionse of Representatives the triumph and the oppor tunity of the nation's recent toes, with re asserting and applauding at the National Capi tol the sentiments of the unrepented rebellion, with sending Union soldiers to the rear and promoting Confederate soldiersjto the front, with deliberately proposing to repudiate the plighted faith of the Gov ernment, with being equally ialse and imbecile upon the joreshadowing ot the eudsot justice by its partisan mismanagement and obstruction ot investigation, with E roving itself through the period of ascendancy in the ower House of Cougreso utterly incompetent to ad minister the Government We warn the country against trusting a party thus alike unworthy, recreant and incapable. IT.—The National Administration merits commenda dation for its honorable work in the management of domestic and foresgn affairs, and President Grant de serves the continued aud hearty gratitude of the American people for his patriotism and his immense service in War and in peace. Pierce, of Massachusetts, moved to strike out the reference to the Mongolian immigra tion, which he denounced as a departure from every Republican platform, and of the principles of the Declaration of Independ ence, and the laws of Christian love, which makes all men, whether Jew or Gentile, equal. Axtel), of New Mexico, opposed the amend ment. The people of the Pacific St ties, ir respective of party, all desire an investiga tion of tne Magnolian question. Jones, of Nevada, followed. This ques tion is of great importance to the people of the Pacific coast. He described the degrad ing character of this Mongolian immigration as a people who recognize neither honesty j among men nor virtue among women. They to ly the is a bly red contribute nothiug to churches or schools. They can live, and will, for ten cents per day. They are in competition with Ameri can laborers who support families, schools, churches and institutions. There is but one opinion in the Pacific States as to the necessity for investigation by Congress, to inform it self as to the real fact9 in the case in order that it may see if something is not necessary to be done to remedy the evils of which they complain. Dutcher, of New York, urged the careful consideration of the resolution, to see if our free people do not need protection agaiust coolie labor. Curtis, of New York, urged that in begin ning a new century the Republicans of America should not depart from the princi ples of the Declaration of Independence. His remarks were received with great ap plause. BelforJ, of Colorado, earnestly sustained the resolution reported, and pointed out fhe utter failure of Chinese immigrants to assim ilate to our own people in any way. Tennessee demanded the previous question, which was sustained. The question was taken by States on Pierce's motion to strike out. It resulted yeas 215, nays 532. So the motion to strike out was rejected. The resolution was then adopted. The question next started was on finances. Tlie resolution of Davis, of Texas, from the minority of the Committee on Resolutions, was reported as a substitute. The resolution declares .distinctly there shall be no further postponement of specie resumption, beyond the date already fixed by law for such re sumption. He thought the resolution of the committee too indefinite. The resolution as reported was adopted, and the whole platform was also adopted. The chairman announced that the next busi ness was NOMINATIONS, which was received with applause, motions to adjourn, etc., which were vociferously ob jected to. The motion to adjourn until 10 o'clock to-morrow was put and lost. Kellogg, of Connecticut, was instructed by bis delegation to present the name of Mar shall Jewell for President. He brieflj' stated his record. Thompson, of Indiana, said he was in structed by the entire Republican party of Indiana, to put before the convention the name of Oliver P. Morton, as a suitable nom inee for the Presidency of the United States. He was equal to every crisis during the dark est hour of tiie rebellion, aud equal to every crisis siuce in the Senate. He stands the peer of the best. He continued to eulogize Morton at some length, and urged that Indi ana bad never had a President. Nominate Morton and there shall go up a great shout of victory in November. He denied that Morton is physically unfit for the position of President. True, he has been afflicted in his legs, but it don't need legs to make a Presi dent ; his head and heart are sound, and his ability and patriotism are unquestioned. If the rights of all people, regardless of color, are to be sustained, and the Union preserved, no man is better calculated to do that. Pinchbaok, of Lousiana, seconded Morton's nomination in the name of the truly loyal people of his State. He referred to him as a man of spotless integrity, matchless courage, and broad Catholic views. His election w'ould strike terror to the monsters iu the South who are driving away capital, persecuting her loyal people, and murdering them. It would be a complete and final settlement of all the great questions arising out of the late war. Gen. Harlan, of Kentucky, came forward amid the greatest applause exhibited in the convention to nominate Benjamin E. Bris tow, in obedience to the instructions of the entire Republican party of his State. Tiie announcement of this news was the signal for another tremendous round of applause. From his earliest manhood lie had been true to the great principles dear to the heart of every Republican. He was reared in the school which taught that the United States did not constitute a league but a nation. In stantly when the rebellion broke out, he an nounced his determination to stand by the Union come what might. He followed his words by entering the military service, and subsequently supporting the cause with equal zeal in the legislature. Harlan proceeded at some length and for cibly to state Bristow's record, being frequen ly interrupted by cheers. Judge Poland, of Vermont, seconded the nomination. He said a large number of the people of his State belonged to the Republi can party, and such is the case in almost every other State. Vermont had not a can didate of its own, but had a deep interest in the great work of this convention. The crisis is an important one. The boast of the Dem ocracy is that they go iDto this canvass with a united South in their favor. This is proba bly true; so it needs only comparatively small fragments of the Northern vote to remit the destinies of the country again into the hands of those who sought to break up the country. Vermont and Ken tucky came into the Union together. He hoped they would stand together now for vic tory with Bristow. Curtis, of New York, now took the plat form amid a loud and long applause. On behalf of that vast body of Republicans of New Y'ork, who have seen that reform is possible within the Republican party, because they have seen the heavy arm of the govern ment drawn upon the thieves, he rose to second the nomination of Bristow. He refer red to Bristow as the one man, who, more to by in a for all the He He the for the than any other, could at this time embody the sentiment of the country in behalf of such reform, the condition of the continued ascen dency of the party in that it shall discharge its duties to the people. He proceeded to eulogize Bristow aud recited from the begin ning of the rebellion to the present time, and iu conclusion said, if this is not to be the last successful convention of the Republican party, it must go into the canvass with these cries. First. Absolute protection of all the lights of citizens everywhere. Socond. The hardest kind of hard money, and the earliest return to it. Third. No rings, no cliques, no combina tions of the personal interests of all the peo ple. No personal government, nothing but the will of the people cleaily expressed. Richard H. Dana, of Massachusetts, also seconded Bristow's nomination. He knew no other name that was sure to carry Massachu setts next November. Mark what I said, not that no other name can carry Massachu setts, but that I know no other that was sure lo do it. When Maine was called upon a scene of the wildest enthusiasm ensued, delegates and spectators rising to their feet, waving handker chiefs, hats, fans, and cheering, long and loudly, aud dosing with three cheers for Blaine. Ingersoll, of Illinois, took the plat form and he was satisfied with the loyalty of Bristow, but if Massachusetts cannot carry any nominee of this convention, he was not satisfied with the loyalty of Massachusetts. If it cannot carry it by 75,000, they ought to sell out Faneuil Hall for a Democratic hall. [Applause and a voice—a monument from Bunker Hill.] He urged that the party de mand now for President a reformer after as well as before election ; a man of political and statesman's experience, and a man of in tegrity-one who knows enough to know that the national debt must be paid through the prosperity of the American people ; that money must be made, not by law, but by labor. Nothing could be more effective and impressive than the speaker's statements of the requirements of the people and the Re publican party growing out of the necessities of the hour. Each sentence w'as forcibly epigramatie aud elicited its round of applause and especially when he said the party de mands a candidate of spotless purity, but does not demand that he shall present a certificate of character from the Confederate Congress, llis announcement of the name of Jas. G. Bl.iiue was the signal for another scene of tremendous excitement. The party wants a leader with the audacity of genius, the grandest combination of heart and con science, and the man known to the American people is Jas. G. .Blaine. To desert him now would be like an army deserting its general. In the name of the great Republic, her great defenders and supporters, her soldiers living or iu the skeleton clutch of Audersonville and Libby, Illinois nominates that prince of parliamentarians, that leader of leaders, Jas. G. Blaine. Turner, of Georgia, related his journey through the country where he found Blaine's name was talismanic ; he revered the name of Morton, "the defender of the outraged people of Louisiana," but believed that the name of Blaine will arouse the people of tins great country as that of Morton will not. He had deep respect for Bristow, and for the great part of New Y'ork which had seconded him here, and great respect also for the dis tinguished gentlemen from Massachusetts, our late Minister to England. He eulogized Blaine's record in eloquent, impassioned terms, but elicited strong tokens of dissent aud displeasure when he uttered a sentence to the effect that the Republican party' was bleeding and dead of Democratic victory be fore Blaine in the halls of Congress came to the rescue. * Frye of Maine followed in support of the nomination of Maine's idol son, who, if nom inated by this Convention, will carry Maine by twenty thousand majority. He was elo quent and forcible in describing the great cause involved in the pending contest, and declaring its invincibility for its own sake under any chosen leader. When New T York was called, Woodford ad vanced to the platform, and, in obedience to the injunctions of the New Y T ork Convention, presented the honored name of Roscoe Conk ling, broad in culture,eloquent in debate, wise in council, fearless in leadership, true to the old Republican party,he needs neither defense nor eulogy. He is a positive quantity in the body politic. He characterized him as a true friend of Ulysses Ö. Grant. Let us nominate a President with our heads and not our hearts. The speaker discussed the political situation for the purpose of showing the policy for nominating Conkling as the best means of securing a national Republican triumph. He urged laying aside all personal preference and all ötate pride in the rememberance of what Democratic restoration means. Gov. Noyes, on behalf of Ohio, presented the name of R. B. Hayes—one who is well known, and greatly beloved by Ohio. He had defeated successively Thurman, Pen dleton aud Wtn. Allen; he has got iu the habit of beating Democrats, and from the force of habit will do it once again if nom inated. He is brave, honest, unpretending, wise, sagacious, scholarly and a gentleman. He is a candidate who can carry Ohio, Indi ana, Illinois and New York; as well as all the rest, because in him you will have a can didate on whom all differences can unite, and because his nomination is safest and best for the assurance of success. Bartholomew of Pennsylvania, presented the name of Governor Hartranft, which elicited applause. He di<^ not claim him superior intellectually to ali the other candi dates, but he knows enough, and will listen to good, sound and sen-ible advice. He is the chosen leader of Pennsylvania Republi cans. The Convention adjourned until ten to morrow, when the fir&t business will be bal loting. At the close of the day, Blaine's friends were still compact, Ingersoll's electric speech having inspired the weakest with renewed confidence. Grand Ratification .Meeting* Washington, June 19. —There was an immense mass meeting in this city to-night to ratify the Cincinnati nominations. The meeting was the largest that has occurred in this city sinee the war. Prominent on the platform were President Grant, Senators Sherman, Morton, Frelinghuysen and Ogles by, Secretaries Chandler, Taft and New,Gen. Butler and many other prominent persons. The meeting was presided over by Logan, and speeches were made by Sherman, Mor ton, Freiinghnysen, Oglesby,Taft and Butler. The speeches all gave unbounded approval to the nominations. Letters w'ere read from Governor Jewell, Senator Conkling and Sec retary Bristow, expressing their hearty ap proval of the nomination. Butler said he desired to repel the slander upon Massachusetts at the convention. One of tlie delegates said, they would only vote for one man. He would say that there would he a large majority for any man nominated at that convention. The speakers generally alluded to their principles iu favor of hard money, and But ler said that they could not stop to quarrel over minor questions of policy. He might differ from some of his political friends on some of the questions, but he was chained to the oar aud must pull in the boat until every negro tn the south could sleep iu his own cabin as well protected as he could in Massa chusetts. Taft alluded to his knowledge of Hayes, his political principles, etc., concluded with saying : Popular education is the hope of the Republic. I trust the time is not far distant when all people will acquiesce in sustaining the common schools, and when they' who would ask a division of the school fund will yield to the genius of Republicanism and be satisfied to give religious instruction and en joy religious worship in the family and in the church, while the State, with sovereign im partiality', will perform its great duty of mak ing education universal through the best sys tem of common schools that the world ever saw. After the adjournment of the meeting at the eiiy hall, the assemblage proceeded to the residence of Blaine, w'ho was met with the most intense manifestations of favor. He addressed the crow'd as follows : Fellow Republicans —The condition of my health forbids that I should address you at length, and I fear my voice may fail to reach a considerable portion of the large crowd to which I am so indebted for the compliment of this call. Let me say in brief that I heart ily join with you in ratifying the nomination of Hayes and Wheeler. I know both of the candidates well, and have known them long. They are true and tried, honest and compe tent, strong and popular. I do not believe it w'as possible for the National Convention to present a more acceptable ticket to the great mass of the American voters, and I have no doubt of its triumphant election in Novem ber. To that great result, your efforts aud mine will, I am sure, be devoted with the most earnest zeal. If I may' be permitted to refer to the connection of my' own name with the Republican nomination, let me say, geu tlemen, that I iook back upon it with pride and satisfaction, and with not one tinge of regret at the final result. I owe much to the true friends who so faithfully supported me, and I am sure that I do not enterhiin the slightest feeling of unkindness towards those who opposed me. I hope I can go further, and say that out of all the tiered contlicts of the past half year, I do not at this moment cherish a trace of ill will or uncharitable feel ing toward any political rival or any politi cal opponent. Let us look forward hopeful ly to the future for peace and prosperity to the American people, wisely guarded by a Republican administration of the Government which shall be just to all sections and to all citizens of our common country. Thanking you again, gentlemen for the honor of your call, I bid you a cordial good night. Grant made a speech to-night in endorse- ment of Hayes and Wheeler. The serenad- es from the ratification meeting at the city ball, after paying Blaine a complimentary visit, directed their course to the White House on the balcony of which the President soon appeared, in response to the music of the Marine band and the cheers of crowd. When an opportunity was afforded him by the first lull in the noisy demonstration he said ; Gen- tlemen—After all the speaking you and I have listened to to-night—for I was with you at your ratification meeting—you can't wish, even I were a speaker, to hear anything from me ; but I cannot withhold my approval of the excellent ticket given you by the Nation- al Republican Convention at Cincinnati—a ticket that should receive the cordial support of all races in all sections. I know Governor Hayes personally, and I can surrender with unfeigned pleasure my present position tp him, as I believe I shall do, on the 5th of March next, with guaranteed security for our rights and liberties under the laws of the land. --— « i^i I ^ Treasurer New Resigns. Washington, June 20. —Treasurer New has written a letter of resignation to take effect from July 1st, and will send it to the President to-day.
