Tho convention was wiled to ordor at 11 o'clock, and prayer was Cerod by Hot. Dr. Clinton Locho, o( Oraco Aurcb, Chicago. The chairman said ho had received, among ther letters and telegrams from all parts of tho country, ono from Mr. Goodwin of Mossa ehusotts,wlth tho presentation of a gavel made Up from wood and relics from different parts f tho world.

Hendricks! nd he paused as if waiting for tho outcome of wnfl preconcerted arrangement, uu cuss uu eyo toward tho Missouri delegation and appa rently In response, Oen. Mansur, of Missouri, Jumped up and emitted a terrific yoll. This was Immediately taken un bv tho audlcnco. and a tremendous shout nroso from all parts of mo nan south or tho space aiiottcu to mo ucie gates. Tho excitement and nolso swept grad ually around among tho audience In tho rear of the delegates and rolled In a tremendous wave tnrougn ine vast mass oi spectators con gregated In tho north wing of the chamber. Tho chair rapped splinters offhlstablolnan eftbrt to curb the demonstration, but ho might ns well have attempted to stop an eruption nf Vesuvius with tho tap nf a tack hammer. So far tho excitement had been confined to the audience, with the exception of a few enthus iastic delegates, who, remaining In their scats, waved their fans and handkerchiefs. At length a little commotion was vlslblo In the New York delegation, and the grim visage of the gTand sachem of Tammany hall was seen slowly rising out of tho confusion. Mr. Kellv's month was wldo open, but what ever Individual nolso was being emitted by the gentleman was drowned In tho frightful uproar which had taken possession of tho hall. Mr. Kelly's rising appeared to bo tho signal for a genera) demonstration on tho part of the ami-Cleveland men In tho convention. Dele gates In all parts of tho spaco within tho rail ing sprang up on their chair, and raised a yell of unparallod Intensity, rromlnent among the members of tho bodv which assisted In creating this section of Bedlam w cro tho dolo stations from Indiana, Missouri, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and tho Tammany end of tho Kcw York delegation, In the midst of the turmoil tho band struck tip "Hall to the Chief," but tho thundering noise of the demonstration Increased in voltimo until tho strains of music were lost in tho deafening uproar. Ono onthitslastlo delegate from Indiana, Mr. Gibson, seised tho Indiana marker and bore It to tho chairman's desk, waging it frantically as ho passed up the aisle, and he shouted something at tho chairman's ear. Tho chairman, however, refused to listen, hut continued to thumo tho desk, with his gavel, and Mr. Gibson retired. In tho meantime tho audlcnco and delegates vied with each other in producing 'cnr-spllttlng toolscs, which drowned out tho voices of two or three dozen Cleveland men who were Dttcmptlng to get the car of tho chair. With all this turmoil about him Gov. Hendricks I (reserved an external calmness which con rastcd strikingly with tho fronsy that pos sessed the last assemblage Ho sat as If frozen fast to his chair, and resisted tho determined efforts of a horde of shouting delegates who tried to drag him to his feet. , A numhor of Tammanyltcs resumed their teats, but Senator Grady danced about on his chair, violently waving n newspaper. Flags, handkerchiefs, fahs. hats, and cv en coats and shawls wcro brought lntouso by tho Hendricks sympathizers in tho audience. All at nnco out of tho terrific uproar cgmo aolco llko the blast 'of a fdg horn, and Mr. Beck, of Indiana, called forthr.eo cheers for Thomas A Hendricks. Tho '(Shears wcro given with an almost venomous good will. wGcn. Mansur 'forced his w" "-ynigh the crowds In tho aisle and ellui up to Chair man Vilas's position with a statement that Missouri wished to cast Its voto solid for Thos. A. Hendricks, but the chair, with a few vigor ous thumps of his gavel, which now began tn look worn and frayed at tho edges, Inlbrmod thfi Mlssourlnn that ho was out of ordor. The Hon. James M. Quarlcs, of Tennessee, Informed the chair, In a stentorian v oice, that blrstato desired to put in nomination Thos. A. Hendricks. Mr. Quarlcs also tried his hand on the chair man, but with no bettor success than that achieved by Gen. Munsur. Gen. Bragg, of Wisconsin, attempted to get In a word on tho score of old friendship and prev lous acquaint ance with tho chairman, but Col. Vilas stcrnlv .repudiated all personal claims, and continued to belabor bis desk and call for order. Out of the confusion roso the clarion voice of Secre tary Thomas Bel), repeating tho call for tho vote of Illinois, but neither' from Illinois nor any olhe.1 commonwealth camo any audible 'response, except yells for Hendricks. Tho deafening uproar had now usurped tho rights of all other business for a period of eighteen minutes. Senator Vaprhecs appeared at tho tide of tho chairman" and tho noise and ex citement graduully subsided. Finally Mr. Voorhees's volcowas heard, call ing "Mr. Chairman 1" The chair said: "Gentlemen of tho conven tion take your scats. The gentleman from In diana has tho floor." 8ecral delegates attompted to speak, but the chair stated that ho would recognlzono ono longer-winded enthusiasts In the south gallery rnuclo a violent attempt to renew tho general turmoil, but their forco w as ovcrcomo by tho discouraging voices of the more sober and re fer; ed portion of tho audlcnco. the gentleman irmu Indiana.

When tho voto of Indiana was announced for nendrlcks, nnd It was apparent that his nomi nation was unanimous, tho delegates and the audlcnco roso to their feet and lndulccd In tho usual extravagant demonstrations.

After remaining in front of Jhe platform a few minutes tho delegates In chargo of tho standards formed themselves Into a procession and marched around tho hall, while thaband favored tho crowd with "Tho Star Spangled Banner." Immediately upon tho cossation of tho muslo the peopio began again with a second chapter or uproar, when tho band came In with "Dixie," which was saluted with a delirious scream by tho southern members, ably assisted by the northern wing of tho democracy. Suc ceeding tho Interval of slmplo yolllug which succeeded "Dlxlo" camo tho strains of "Auld Lang Syno" from tho band, and thousands of voices thundered tho refrain of tho familiar old song.

Tho.fourth and last day of tho national democratlo convention opened, as yesterday, with an overflowing house. It has been a week from to-day sluco delegates arrived in tho city. During that tlmo they havo gone through great physical labor and mental suspense. Some of thern havo not averaged four In twenty-four hours sleep, and physically tueyuro about as tired out as men cau bo. Thoy, however, came up smiling this morning, and, Judging from tho enthuslastlo greeting given Mr. Hendricks when ho appeared In tho hall, their lung power was not exhausted. From tho time nf tho adjournment of tho convention, at 2 o'clock this morning, up to tho time of Us reassembling to-day tho nntl-Clovolanditcs had used every eflort that a disorganized and rattled class of politi cians could ue to concentrate their demora lized forces upon somo candidate strong enough to hold one-third of the convention against Cleveland. Tho namos or new men wcro canvassed, and among them Mr. Heu drick's. Allofthuso attempts met with dis aster. Tho Meld was not strong enough to de feat Mr, Cleveland, and It was not managed w Ith that kklllaud generalship so necessary to success. Cleveland had tho machine as well tlireo months ago as ho had to-day. The machine Is a great cugltio or power In tho na tional convention; that it would triumph to day has never been doubled by any ono hero who hns closely w ntched tho progrcssol evmts nnd carefullv studied tbe" filiation. lho Now York governor had tho bulgo frpm thu (tart. Ho got a good Mart In tho race, and could not be headed. It was understood be fore tho balloting commenced that tho name nfMr. Ilnmlall would bo withdrawn lrom tbo convention, and that lrom thlrty-llvo to lorty of the lVnnsylvaulans would go to Cleveland, Then thotalK was that tho voles of Marland and other wtatoi would be east for Cleveland, It v as confidently expected that only ono bal lot w ould bo necessary to nominate.

At this Junction tho utmost anxiety prevailed to know what Pennsylvania vVould do. It was confidently expected that It would dlvldo Its voto equally ncurccn uioveianu asti lien drlcks. Col. McClure, of the Philadelphia Timet, who sat In tho seat adjoining your cor respondent, said ho feared that It was another caso of Gartlcld. Garfield nominated Sher man, and tho convention nominated Garfield. When Pennsylvania returned In tho hall, and Its chairman announced 42 votes for Cleve land, another stirring scone Occurred, and the Cleveland men knowing that this gave them a majority of thirty over a majority of the votes cast, they wero enthusiastically eangnlno of tho result aud cheered llko victors. v hen tho roll of the states bad been finished and beforo tho result was announced, a dozen of men wcro clamoring for recognition from tho chair. It was evident that tho convention had not been stampeded for Hendricks. The Clovoland ranks had stood firm agnlnrt tho flerco and de termined assault of tho opposition. When the stales began to change their votes lo Clovcland and thero win now no longer a doubt but that he had received tho requlstto two-thirds majority tho cxcltomentwaslntcnso and tho convention was a solid inass of stand ing men and women. Nobody were In their scats, except perhaps tho reporters. At this tlmo a beautiful eagle surmounting an anchor set with flowers camo from tho New York dele gation. Thocaglo borolnlta mouth a whlto silk badgo. upon which was inscribed tho namo of "Cleveland." The eaglo reached tho filatform, and then tho band atruclcup "Hall othoChltr." Tho flairs and emblems were fitrinned.from their fastenings and waived aloft and overy ncmonsirauonpossiDiowairctorteuio. roaua to tho scene, the banner of 'New York was car ried to tho platform and nailed lu front of tho convention. New Jersey and Connecticut ban ners were placed at Its side.- Then Indiana's banner was brought up and the banners of tho southern states were placed In a solid mass. Hats and fans wcro thrown from the galleries and caught up by those on tho floor and sailed through tho building. Ladles stripped their heads of bonnets and tossed tbem in the air, A shower of whlto handkerchiefs floated from tho gallery, and every two or t hrco minutes tho wildest cheering would be ropcatcd. In tho midst of this great uproar tho roar of tho can non was heard on tho outsldo. The unanimous nomination of Mr. Cleveland was mado at the request of Gov. nendrlcks, through Mr. Menzlos. Loud cried vrcro next mado for John Kolly, of Now York. In tho call of states Kentucky was abont the only stato in tho union that did not tjunblo to tho situation, only giving Mr. Cleveland fcur votes on tho llual ballot, alter his nomination had been made by the almost solid vote oi tho convention. The nomination was thon mado unanimous, and to Intensify tho excitement a Ufc-slzcd oil painting pf Mr. Cleveland, handsomely framed, was placed In front of the platform, which was tho signal for re- nowed and nrolontred cheerlnsr. Whon tho rdnventlon assembled to nominate a vlco president thore was not near so large a crowd present, a great deal of tho lntorest hav ing terminated In. the nomination for tho Sresldenoy. The surface- talk was that Mo ouald or Vilas would' bo tho candidate, though somo thought it might be a short horse. A boom was being workod up for Hoadly by tho Cincinnati Kiupiirer crowd. Tho Now York delegation was undecided before tho con vention met upon its choice for vloo president.

Thov thouorht thet aa Wis consin was a doubtful state this year It Was llkoly that Now York woiOd spring its big voto for Vilas.

In the meantime a resolution Indorsing tho Mor rison tariff bill was offered, which at tho samo time Indorsed ltandall and tho protectionists. Under the rules it was referred to tbo commit teo on resolutions to bo reported four years hence. Thero was not much Interest manifested, al though each of the namespresonted was prop erly applauded until Senator Wallace, or Penn sylvania, nominated Hendricks. Thon thero was a wild burst of cheering. Mr. Monties, of Indlanai declined for Mr, Hendricks, who was in bis toat, looking de cidedly nervous. The failure to stampede tho convention tn his behalf in tho morning had somewhat chagrined him, for ho had believed mat tue pian so careiuiiy maturou curing tno night would surely succeed. Ho was the only available relic of tho "old ttokat," and It was confidently expected that lho demonstration in his behalf would have nmegtcal effect upon tho convention, and, turning tho tldo irom Cleveland, nominate Mr. Itundrieka, to com pensate him for the alleged fraud of 1876. Tho schemo didn't work, and Mr. Hendricks was not happy. Ho had been sent to.Chloago to nomtuato McDonald artdbe bad performed that duty, but had also industriously worked up a boom in his own behalf. Ills efforts had failed and ho was disgruntled. Ho knew that McDonald expected tho second place on tbo ticket, and vet he did not want to get left again nlmself. So ho hod Mcnzio again say that ho would not accept thonomluaton for vice president, ho mignt navo maao me acouna lion himself, but then the convention would havo believed that ho meant It. bo be sat silcut and allow ed the enthusiasm to go on which culminated when ho .received overy vote of tho convention. McDonald's friends feci that he has bcon sold out by the ox-governor, and It Is predicted that they will sulk during tho coming- contest, so that Indiana will be carried by the republicans by ut least 15,000. At a conference of tho loading friends of Cleveland aud other prominent members of the convention, to the,nusaber of about fifty, which took placo during the recess this after noon, the merits of tho various candidates for vlco presidents wore discussed, and it was agreed If possible to nominate Thomas A. Hendricks for that ofllco. Tho choice nar rowed down beforo tho final decision to Hendricks and cx-Sonator Henry G. Davis, of West Virginia. Mr. Davis was sont for, but gavo so so many reasons why ho should not be placed upon the ticket and why Mr. Hendricks should, that tho latter was at longth decided upon.
