On every side of the hall hung flags on which were inscribed tbe most appropriate mottoes, among wmoa were "westward tne star of Empirerakes its Way :" "20,000,000 of People Seek an Acceptable Route to the Pacific;?'

Broadhead then made some preliminary remarks, after which be read tbe call for the Con vention, following which he announced tne presence of aeiegates from twenty seven States, representing the wealth and intelligence of the whole country. He continued: "Tbe stockholders and those who assisted in the construction of the Northern Pacific railroad are the must active in their opposition to the building and Government assistance to the Southern route; and these same in terested parties are canvassing the South for tbe purpose of exoiting opposition, but tbe interest manifested in the in domitable euterpru-j exhibited in the new route shows conclusively that all the opposition has been able to effect is of the very slightest consequence." He paid a handsome tribute to the skill and energy of Capt. J. B. Eads, and showed how an earnest people are now to continue the improvement so successfully inaugurated by Capt. Eads iu opening the mouth of the Mississippi. Tbe Col. tuen read a letter from General Sherman, which excited the wildest en thusiasm, the General being preserit.bul unknown at the lime.
