When we went to press last week the convention was in great turmoil It was then doubtful whether it would be able to organize. The committee on credentials labored all day Wednesday and nearly all night. The convention met and adjourned Thursday morning. In the afternoon the following resolu tion was adopted: Kksolvbd. That all persons in this body claiming to be delegates to this convention hereby pledge themielves to abide by its action and support its nominett; and, that. - all candidates whose names may be proposed for the nomination shall be pledged to the same e fleet. About 4 o'clock the committee on credentials was announced. A unanimous report was submitted as to all delegates except those from the 5th, Cth and 9th districts of Maury county and one or two in Williamson. The Hancock vote was adopted at a Dasis ior voting upon preliminary questions. w. A. Stewart or lawrence pre sented the majority report as to the contested districts from Maury, rec ommendin2 the recognition of the Whitthorne delegates. Jno. II. Henderson of Williamson presented the minority report. I he contestants from each dis trict were allowed 15 minutes each to present argument and proof be fore the convention, except the Co lumbia contestants, who were al- owed 25 minutes each. The argu mentas to the 5th district then com menced. Judge Jones moved that both sets ot delegates be admitted, each to cast half the vote; that the ma jority report as to the Gth district be adopted; that the list of dele gates lrom the Vth headed by Barclay Martin be also admitted. It wa never put, being lost in a confusion of amendments and mo tions in lieu, all of which ware final ly declared out of order. NIGHT SESSION. II. 1. Figucrs called for the vote on admitting the delegates lrom the 5th S. C. Mitchell moved that the delegates from the th and 9th be excluded from voting. tjguers moved in lieu that the uncontested delegates from Maury be allowed to cast the vote of the county. Mitchell moved to lay it on the table, which was carried by a vote by counties GO J to G0j. Delegates from Mayry asked the chair to state how many votes Maury would be allowed to cast and the chair decided that she should cast 33, less the number entitled to be cast by the 5th, Gth and 9th districts. Mr. Taliaferro moved that the Henderson report be adopted. Mr. Figuers moved in lieu that the Burke delegates be seated. The motion in lieu was lost by G9 to 60. On motioa of Mr. Taliaferro the majority report as to the Oth district was adopted. Jlr. Mitchell moved that the Hen derson report as to the 9th district be adopted. The argument then proceeded and was carried on with exceeding bitterness for two hours or more, until it seemed that the conven- ion would burst up without even organizing. A vote would certain- have seated the anti-Whitthorne delegates from Columbia, but it was asierted that it would endanger the ucccss of the party in Maury and woul4 engender strife and rebellion. Judge Jones finally moved in lieu that both sets of delegates be admitted and on call by counties it carriedby a vote of 102 to 22, Mau ry herself casting the Tl votes. . FRIDAY MORNING. Giles changed her vote on last motion to 16 ayo and 10 no. The counties then named the loir lowing committee on permanent or ganization: Dickson, M. H. But ler, Giles, Dr. T. B. Harwell; Hick man, J. II. Philips; Lawrence, Dr. R. II. Harvey; Lewis, I. T.Garrett; Maury, G. t W. S,tockard ; Wayne, Dr. C. Buchanan; Williamson, W. W. McConico. . v All contests from other counties were withdrawn. The following were named as the committee on basis of representa tion: Dickson, J. C. Hunt; Giles II. M. Stanley; Hickman. J. S. Jones; Lawrence, Jas. A. Sims; Lewis, J. W. Christian; Maury, Geo. C. Taylor; Wayne, W. L. Erumley; Williamson, L. G. Thompson. Judge Thos. M. Jones introduced tho following resolutions. Kesolvkd, That the following rules and regulations are hereby adopted for the government of conventions which may be hereafter called to nominate candidates for congress and members of the legislature in this congressional district : " ' 1st In the convention to nominate a candidate for congress each county shall be entitled to one delegate for ev ery hundred votes aud a fraction over fifty which said county snail nave cast for the democratic pomlnte for presi dent in the last election preceding the calling of said convention. 2d The candidates receiving a ma jority of all the votes cast in conven tion snail ue declared lis nominee. 3d Tho democratic committees ef each of the counties shall call primary meetings to be held in each civil dis trict and designate the number of dele gates to which said district is entitled. 4th ucguiar elections snau uc imiu in ench civil district for delegates, of which twenty days notice of the time and place of holding said election shall be given, and tho delegates receiving the highest number of votes shall be declared elected. The voter shall en dorse upon his ballot his preference for nomination, and the delegates elec ted shall cast their votes in conven tion for the persons thus desinated, and in proportion to the votes thus received. 6th The judges shall not receive or count the vote of anyone who is not recognized as a democrat, and has been and is acting with the democratic party. 6th The fudges ana ciems snaii make out a return of the election held in their districts and deliver the same to the chairman of the democratic com mlttee in each county, and If there L nocontestthe chairman of the coun-t- cnmmitteca.ahal lorward the same to the chairman of the congressional district to be laid before the convention. 7th If the election ot any delegate is contested, the democratic executive committee of the county shall in the first instance decide the same, lrom w hich elter party can appeal to the conven tion. -. 9th The conuty and bonatorial con- vntiona shall be lrovcrned ' by the same rules, except as to tha number of deleeates. which shall be two for every hundred votes and a fraction over fifty which said county shall vote fox the democratio nominee for president in the election preceding the calling of the convention. The committee on permanent or ganization reported, recommending Judcre Thos. M. Jones for chair man and Geo. W. Currin of Wil Iiamson for secretary. Adopted. Jude Jones was escorted to the chair and addressed the convention at some length, counselling modera tion and harmony. The committee on basis of repre sentation submitted two reports, the majority favoring the Hancock vote and the minority the Wright and Wson vote. Ihe majority re port was adopted by a vote of 66! to 63 A resolution was introduced by Mr. Johnson of Williamson endors ing Gen. Wm B.. Bate and pledging the delegates to this convention to his support. It raised a storm of opposition from the Bate demo crats, who based their objection to its adoption upon the ground that this was a federal convention and that slate issues should not be in troduced because of the fact that the Columbia convention- had in vited Fussell democrats to partici pate in this convention and they had come here under that invita tion and had been received, and now they should not be hampered by a resolution to compel them to renounce opinions which this con vention had agreed to waive when it invited their co-operation. Many protests were entered by Bate dem ocrats and the resolution was de feated by a vote of 66 no to 63 i aye. It was specially understood that this resolution was defeated solely upon the grounds stated, the delegates in no wise renouncing their allegiance to the democratic nominee and platform, but waiving it out of consideration for the Fus sell delegates, who accepted it upon that ground. t. ii. Hemphill introduced a reso lution pledging the delegates to support the nominee. Adopted. On motion the convention adop ted the two-thirds rule. The chair announced nominations in order and ordered a call of coun ties. When it come to Williamson, John II. Henderson presented the name of Col. Nicholas N. Cox. S. C. Mitchell of Giles and W. L. Grigsby of Dickson seconded the nomination. There were no other nominations and the roll was or dered.

Motions to adjourn were made and voted dorn and delegates were hurrying to and fro, until the 59th ballot, when Dickson changed her vote solid for Ballentine and the other counties came rushing to him and his nomination was made unanimous. This was about 1 o'clock. Amotion had been adop ted at the outset of the night ses sion resolving not to adjourn until a nomination was made. About midnight Mr. Taliaferro raised the point of order that a motion to ad journ to a stated time meant that the body would adjourn at that time if not sooner, and that a mo tion to adjourn at any time was not excluded by the resolution. The chair ruled that the point was well taken, but the convention refused te adjourn. When the climax came there was the wildest excitement. Col. Ballentine was loudly called and came before the convention and accepted the nomination in a ringing speech, promising toj carry the banner to victory and to make a vigorous canvass. Speeches were made by the chairmen of the different delega tions endorsing and applauding the nomination and piomismg vigorous support. Col. Cox addressed the conven tion endorsing its actioa, and Mr. W. J. Whitthorne, in the name ot his brother, thanked his friends for their long and liberal support in the past and promising his support of the nominee. The writer was not a witness to these closing scenes, having yielded to fatigue and retired, and hence writes only from report. The con vention adjourned iim die about 1 o'clock, and nearly all of them left on the 4 o'clock train and left Pu laski deserted.

Henry Hollo way, colored, was hansred by an enraged people at Elkton. in this count', last Tues day at about one o'clock. On last Saturday night the beast went to the house of a Air. itogert livin; on Mrs. Lt U. ouiue s piace, nine miles south of Pulaski, pretending that he wished to Dorrew some meaL Finding that Mr. Rogers was absent he seized Mrs. Rogers, a lady about fifty years of age, and dragged her from the house and out into the yard and by brute force violated her person in tne most htll- ish manner. Her little children screamed and ran and alarmed the I substantial and will be much prettier any we ever saw here. The follow neighbors but the negro had ea- on the inside than those that were ing are the premiums awarded up caped Next morning a posse of men headed by Mr. Creorge buttle, ... i jr., went to the negro s nouse and found him a short distance away in a thicket playing cards with two other negroes, ms aiannea expres sion gave him away at once. He was taken to Elkton and the preliminary trial deferred to Tuesday so that all the evidence might be adduced and his guilt or innocence clearly proven. Mrs Rogers was at the trial and identi fied the negro. She knew him well and had given his name before and there was not the least shadow ol doubt that he was guilty. That clearly established, there was but one thing left to do, and that thing s exactly what Giles county men will always do. The beast was taken to the high iron bridge over Elk rtver, a rope was adiusted aooit his necx and the other end made fast to the rail- ng, and the wretch was thrown overDoard ana leit suspended Dy a broken neck. It was quick and sure and dreadful and just. How long will it take these lustful fiends to find out that hanging is their sure fate? This negro was recently ia the workhouse for some offense. Mrs. Rogers is a lady without re proach, and although this act of direful vengeance does not remove the pangs of the dreadful outrage, it is some consolation to the familv to know that the whole people rose in her defense to punish the offen- .i rni a. ii Jr. -i .,r.,-..r. people present, we learn, calm and determined men-good men with a terrible but righteous duty to per- The trial was conducted by Eso" ITaneerd and Hollon whn rrn- , -!-! . r-n nnnnp0il him mi 1 1 ttt fx r aAAnar -.- 6-v. m "vy-" mr a Tha i n rt nrm m n T.

The October term of county court was in session Monday and Tues day. The new magistrates fell into tho harness like old work hprses. S. W.Butler, F. M. Kersey and a. A. Honkins were elected noor house commissioners. Right to use the road bed of the Bradshaw road for a turnpike was granted J. D. Flautt and others. A like privilege was granted N.

The court revoked its order clos ing the gates of the. Elkton pike, the company withdrawing its suit in chancery. The chairman reported his final settlement with Trustee Bugg. He turned over to his successor, Mr. McLaurine, $12,076.81 school tax, $3,087.85 special tax, $10,905.27 county tax, making an aggregate of $25,358.73. The $3,087.85 special tax was the excess left after paying the Spofford debt. Mr. Bugg's ac counts balance, but have not been audited. The total amount of appropria tions for the term was $4,197.95. A Woman's Devotion. This beautiful and pathetic play was presented at Antoinette Hall by the famous Huntley Dramatic Com pany Tuesday night and elicited great applause from a large audi ence. The scene is in California in '49, and the play depicted a woman's devotion and another woman's fri volity, a man's nobility and anoth er's 'treachery, all illustrating the varied intermingling of diverse characters brought together in rough times. Miss Florence Ken nedy sustained to perfection the character of Claire LeMoyne, ex hibiting with true and touching ef fect the purer side of woman's character and the strength of her devotion. Mr. Huntley as Joe ex hibited his usual strength of acting in showing the purity of character that sometimes sparkles like a gem under a rough exterior. Mr. Jno. W. Blaisdell played Reuben Craig spendidly and with extra effect. The other parts were well rendered, showing the company to be strong in all its parts. Last night's per formance was well attended.

It did not extend as far as Pulaski, at least. We understand that there were a number of the best citiztns in the Elkton community who held themselves in readiness to defend him if the trial had shown that there was any doubt of his guilt.

It had been asxed in the conven tion whether CoL Ballentine would make the canvass if he should re ceive the nomination. He dispelled all doubt upon that subject in his speech alter the nomination was made. He said that while he might not make as brilliant a canvass as other gentlemen who had been be fore the convention would have done, yet he pledged himself to run the race through and said that he in tended to be elected top. But the people of this district need enter tain no fears as to the brilliancy of Col. Ballentine'a canvass, and his election will be equally triumphant and sure.

Carter; David S. Martin. Judge Jenei' Flan. We call the attention of the country to the resolutions intro duced by Judge Thos. M. Jones be fore the late convention. The necesity for some other method was so enormously apparent in this stormy convention that no argument is needed to commend any. other plan. We believe that Judge Jones has hit the best method that can be devised. The convention did not take any action because they were not pressed to a vote nor discussed. Of course it could not adopt any method that would govern the party or be binding anywhere, but they were introduced for the sanction of this convention so that the party officials would take cognizance of them. It is too early to discuss them now, but when the time comes, if we should have a voice and no other or better meais are suggested, we shall call attention to this plan ana urge us adoption. FAT.

CmjKNs or Pcxasxi and Giles County : For twenty years past I have owned and managed what the press and people of America have called the "largest and best show in the World." You saw my Great Show last year, you saw iu Twenty Elephants, its acres of canvass, its mammouth Menagerie, its great Cir cus in two rings, its grand, novel and f gorgeous parade. You know it is the argest Show that ever visited Pulaski. Now it is coming again. It will be In PULASKI, WEDNESDAY, NOVEM BER 2,1882. One small show has come here aad another still smaller one is announced as coming. My great show is much larger thaa both ol these small concerns Eut together, zou know this as you ave seen the shows. The proprietors of tkese two little shows have been offering to wager money about the size of tbtir shows, but when asked to put up, they never do. They will not bet, simply desiring by their bembastlo language ana onere to deceive the peo ple, one say ne nas ," the other - shows. I have but onk. Only one. But that one show is much bigger and better in every way than their "6" and "9." They know it. You know it. Yeu saw the 4 Paw Show last year. You know what it is. You know I ass Justified in saying "WAIT FOR 4 PAW," "WAIT UNTIL. NOVEMBER 2." My show Is now much larger than It was last year, I have enlarged in every department.

Wait for a show that gives yoa the worth ef your money. Patronize no mue stut snewt mat nave nothing to show, l'on remember what I told yea last year ana that 1 have kept my promises In all things.
