The correspondent of tho Cincinnati Commtr tial ray.: "Tha ni.ht before last New Yorker enttred the room of General Forrest, of Tennessee, who was in bod, and introduced himsell as a Chase Democrat. After convers ing a few moment, he dircotly proposed o buy Forrest, who slapped him in the month, and sprincini up in his shirt-tail li gave tha pecu niary messenger a violent barefoot kick as he fled throuqh the door." Very like'y. As we were not there, we cannot say. Regarding it as important lo have on the floor of (he Convention men who anilod with teal for Pendleton parliamentary experience and ability aa public spaakers, Mr. Jaseph C. Butler, of the Ohio delegation, recigaed in favor of Judge Thuraan, Washington McLean in favor of George E. Punh, and Mr. Btokea for VallandUham, who supports Pendleton. A resolution by the Kentucky delegation in tke Convention, that Johnson should is.ae an amnesty proclamation covering the case of Davis, Breckinridge, atd all -others, was re ceived with shont after shout, and Im meme applause. So was the resolution of tha Labor Convention, that currency for the poor was good enouth for the rich. New York is against Pendleton, end will combine all possi ble strength to defeat him. The Kentucky delegation is influential for Pendleton, especi ally with the Southern delegates. Inn-raxed Tarnation. The extreme Ridical Chicago Tribune is compelled to grumble in thn interest of the West at the largely increased tariff reported by the Way and Meang Committee of the Ilonie. It iopsests that iti title ought to be thus: Wberfas, Con(r.res has recently re lieved the manufacturers of Pennsylva nia and New Encland of eighty millions of internal taxation ;' therefore, the tariff should be raised so much higher as will enable them to exact from the Ameri can people eighty millions more on their goods, making a dear profit of one hun dred and sixty millions at the expense of the public goose, which thrt bill pro poses to allow them to pluck. The Tribune insists that the party can not stand such a bill " even upon the eve of a Presidential election." The more tariffs the more tax, which the consumer pays, who is the poor man. As long as poor men must eat and wear clothes, so long will they pay the Uxl raised by these Ugh tariffs, and be ground into the eartb- The manufacturers and mer chants pay do share of it- They have only to add to the price of their goods .nd res. which the poor must pay. A ii'rect tax of so many dollars will (all on the capitalist. Bat a tariff is an indirect tax, which poor men mns pay, and the yich are pampered and made richer by it.' Io tinira of calamity, the rich eapi ali.tarrowrirr.tr. and the poor, poor Will the poor cln of citizens then sup port Congress in piling up tariffs, when direct tax is the fair way to pay debts, and will make the rich pay them in pro portion to their means, instead of the poor, who now are rsjing- three-fourths of th taxes cf the country T The Tribune is partiaaa enouph to srPrttbe Con gress in anytlir.g of oppression on other qoanera. Lot now the aboe pinches at tome. It says: Tl. t.x leviej hw Ur'.f is very earrtiffi it rel all we tat, drink, ,- - v; f jir ' 7i -.'w tvnd wear, and all things wo mo in do mtwti lifer-nle th tools, wares, and im plements of our trudes d occupation.

So it. prefer to go on with the crushing process, ana is content with a littV grumbling which will rectify nothing. It says: H.AnA.;i!nn Trr a ntill farther JU- crease t f tariff will not be tolerated by . i nl. ail. ni-a Itenrtilv sink alHl disgusted w'ith the insatiable demand of th Eastern I roiccuomaia, wnu ro iui- LlHi.M nnrln, iiiih ltdtlff aliarA of "TIT Wllliimn,","t www., i j ( taxation as falls upon them, and who country for their benefit.

Vint tn swell the profits of a few domestic producers. Tha Convention. WW the result will be a to the nomi nation for President we do not yet know, while we write. The man i unknown to o who will be our standard-bearer. But we know from the platform adopted that he he who he may he will represent the view of the Democratic masses- There is considerable division and log rolling in the Convention, which, how- oer oThihiti no conflict of sentiment, and will result in no subsequent divi sions. 'The onto cause of disagreement is in the partialities of the friends of the different candidates. And this is only the more intensified by the common in stinct that the fortunate nominee will be the next President of the country. Under such circumstances it is impossible but there should be friendly divisions. The Southern dele gations, we are pleased to see, are stand- nir aloof, waiting to know the will oi the Northern Slates, and ready to come in and swell the mnjority vote when that is ascertained. 11ns is precisely as it should be. And when their vote is oivnn. it will make the reauisite two- thirds majority at once. The balance of nower they thus hold should be, and we doubt not will be, discrect'y exercised. The noon dispatches may give ns the result to-day. - . Kealawnsr Uoverument. An ex-Fedcral soldier said to us yes- trdnv that he had never meddled with politics in all his life. lie had lived in the North and quietly pursued his regu' lar avocation. But now that he had een for himself that the people of Ten nessee were governed,1 through adroit practices on the negro, by scalawags, iot one of whom would be received in nr rpsnectablc circle .of the North, he had determined that he would oppose them. The more, he said, tho Northern people know the true facts, the less will rr countenance them. I hey are not fully apprised as yet that their scurf and rogues have come here as extensively thev have done to role the country, and have so fully succeeded in making their own Botany Bay. , f acts, tacts, liirhL is what is wanted. And we hope every intelligent Northern gentleman among ns will contribute to give them, especially at their former home where ey are most needed, ne welcome iem to unite in our Democratic organ ization.

Cheers and some confusion en sued here, but llie Chair put uieqiisiiun at once, and It was decided in the eflirma- tlve- j After some debate the Chair announced that he would rule as was ruled at Haiti moroand Charleston, that two-thirds the entire number of delegates should be ne cessary to a nomination. Connecticut, which first pierced the gloom by eluding a Democratic Gavernor, presented hi name for the nomination, James Ii. Eoglisb. Illinois would vote for Pen dleton, who was placed in nomination by the nnanimous voice of Ohio; Min nesota nominated W. S. Eancock ; Maine named Pendleton ; New Jersey, ex-Gov. Joel Parker; New York, Sanford h. Church; Pennsylvania, Hon. Asa Pack er; Nelson, of Tennessee, nominated Andrew Johnson, which was received with prolonged cheering; Vermont nom inated English, the only Democratic ftnvernor of New England ; the mejority of the Wisconsin delegation nominated J. R. Doolittle, the minority George H. Pendleton. The roll was then called and the balloting proceeded. The first and second ballot were given yesterday. iVirginia, on the third ballot, went to Pendleton with ten votes, and the result was announced thus: Third Ballot English, 7; Hancock, 45; Pendleton, 119; Parker, 13; Church, 33; Packer, 26 ; Andrew John son, 34; Doolittle, 12; Hendricks, 9 ; Reverdy Johnson, II; Blair, 4 ; Ewing, 1. Pennsylvania having announced ber vote for Packer, as before, there was no choice, and the roll was culled for the fourth ballot, in which North Carolina voted nine for Seymour, amid great and continuous applause. Mr. Tilden said if the galleries were to interfere in this way, be would move that they be cleared. - Mr. Richardson moved to closo them, but withdrew it, and x , Governor Seymour rose, and said that he could not accept a nomination by this Convention," which his inclination orig inally declined, nnd his honor now de manded, nd he hoped his name would not be called here against his protest, The call was completed, and at its close North Carolina was again called, but persisted in her vote for Seymonr, and the result was announced as follows : Fourth flaM-English. 7J; Han cock, 43; Pendloton, 118; Parker, 13; Church, 33; Packer, 20; Andrew John son, 32; Doolittle, 12; flondricks, 11; Reverdy Johnson, S; Seymour, 9; Blair, 2.; Kwing, 2.

Q Adams, . While waiting for the Indiana delega tion the Secretary called upon the sev eral delegations to send up, for record ing, the names and postolfice address, respectively, of their nominee for the National Executive Committee, Mr. Richardson said that before the expiration of the next four years all the present Territories would probably be States of the Union, and he moved, there fore, that a member from each Territory be added to the National Executive Committee. Mr. Hart, of New York, moved lo lay tfie motion on the table, which was lost. A delegate from Pennsylvania moved to amend so a to give one member of the Executive Committee to the District of Columbia. An Ohio delegate said that the Dis trict of Columbia could never be a State in the Union, and he hoped th amend ment would not be adtp ed- The vote was taken and the amend ment lost The question then recurred upon the original motion of Mr. Richardson. Mr. Tilden, of New York, opposed the proposition to give the territories equal influence with populated States like New York and Pennsylvania. It was enough that under the present rule the voice of New York was neutral a id by the voices of the smaller States. Mr. Reily, of Pennsylvania, effered a resolution, which was adopted, providing that, in the event of any State being ad mitted into the Union, any person ap pointed by the recognized Democratic party of such State, shall b accepted as a member of the National Democratic Executive Committee. A committee of three was appointed to see if the Indiana delegation was likely to be ready to return to the Convention, with a view of taking a recess, it the delegation still needi-d further time.

The hall was filled in every part, many ladies being present. Prayer and the reading of the minutes of yes'.orJay were dispensed with. Missouri called for the reading of the name of the Nationul Democratic Ex ecutive Committee, which was ordered. These were given in the morning paper for all tbe States except New York and California. Price, of Missouri, assumed the chair Bayard, of Dolaware, said there was gome mistake about the name recorded for that State, and asked that it be omit ted in the calL, He was anre tbe name as published had not been agreed to by a majority of the delegates. The list was read. California named John Bigler. New York named August Belmont. , Fitch, of Indiana, rose to present one of its most talented citizens as a candi date before this Convention for Presi dential nomination one of tho best and purest men of . the nation. He bad thought right to cast his vote a rea sonable length of time for Pendleton, bnt in the opinion of the majority of the del egates, that reasonable time had passed, although a minority were still of opinion that they ought to adhere further to the gentleman of Ohio. The majority had no disposition, even if it had the power, to forco their views upon the minority. In conclusion, he briefly eulogized nnd nominated Thos. A. Hendricks. Price, of Indiana, for the minority, urged adherence to Pendleton. He ex pressed the highest respect for Hen drioks, but said the minority should not go for him, because the State Convention declared for Pendleton against the most earnest and persistent opposition. In accordance , with that preference, the delegation resolved to stand by Pendloton go long as there wbb any reasonable hope of his nomination Great cheers mid some hisses. The roll was then called. At each vote for Pendleton the galleries applauded vociferously- The same demonstrations greeted Hendricks. Mississippi went for Pendleton on this ballot. The vote of New York fer Church was cheered. During the roll call, an Oregon dele gate attempted to explain the vote the delegation would give, but was ruled out of order, as he admitted he had no new candidate.

The question was put to tho Convention and decided in the affirmative. Clymer, of Pennsylvania, moved for a recess of fifteen minutes, which was car ried. At tbe expiration of the time the Chair called the Convention to order. It i rumored that New York will break on thf next ballot, casting the larger part, if not all, her vote for Hendricks. This" is denied by some, who say that while New Yoik will leave Church to day, nnless he receives support from other States, they are not yet ready to drop him. Tbe exciteajent and anxiely isintense. The clerk proceeded to call the roll on the eighth ballot, each vote being received th demonstrations of applause by friends of the candidates in the galleries.

Shocking Accident in Covington-Two Hen Suffocated in a Vault. , From the Cincinnati Enquirer, of Saturday. A Rhocking accident occurred nbont 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, in the rear of the Conlral Hotel, corner of Pike and Washington streets. Two men, named John Collins and Meredith Abbott, had been engaged in digging a privy vault by the sido of nn old one. The work wa about done, the contents of the old vault having been drained into the new one. Abbott descended to a platform about half way down into the new vault, but for what purpose not exactly known. While there the foul gas overcame him, and he fell from tho platform into the excrement, Collins, who was nt the top of the vault, seeing the per ilous condition of Abbott, immediate ly lowered himself to the platform by means of a rope and windlass, and suc ceeded in tying the rope around Abbott's body. He tbea gave the alarm for the person who had oollected at the top of the vault to draw Abbott up, but, unfor tunately, at this moment he himself was stifled by tbe poisonous gas, and tell oil the platform. Abbott wag taken out of the pit alive, but hi'loro Collins could be drawn up he was suffocated. Abbott waB alive at 7 o'clock last evening, but it is thought be cannot survive his ir juries. Both the men have large families. Col lins lived somewhere on Banklick street, and Abbott on Fourth, between Johnson and Main, . . 1 A Sew Military District- We find the following note in the Springfield (III.) Register, of Thursday: There has been Quite a flurry created among tbe Radical politicians, owing to a well authenticated report that the President is about creating a new mili tary district in the South, to which Gen. Rousseau is to be assigned, with head quarters at New Orleans. Tbe district will embrace Ueorgia, Aianama, t loriua, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, and will be styled the Department of the Gulf. It may be in General Rous seau power to prevent election Irauds and protct the ballot-box against vio lence and trickery. Scalawags Hot Wanted. The following advertisement appears in the Augusta Constitutionalist of Fri day: A Orb. No native "scalawags ' or their money are wanted in my store from tbis date.
