Majou Brattos: In pursuance of

it in lime lor publication in your next

brief outline of the proceedings, dc.
The counties oi Ga'lia, Meigs and
Vinlon were represented by their del
egates, who were armed with proper
credentials, but by reisou of a misun
derstanding, or rattier a want of un
derstanding, as to the time of holding
said convention, Lawrence county was
not represented by delegates regularly
The meeting was regularly organ
ized, and Ihe number ot delegates to
which each county was entitled b'xed
by a committee appointed for that pur
pose, when, on motion, it was agreed
i hat the v ote of Lawrence count v slio'd
be cast by a committee oi three, com
posed of one from each county repre
sented in the Convention.
The next business was the selection
of a candidate, which on the first bal
lot resulted in the nomination ol Lew
is Andeison, of Lawrence county, who
is the present incumbent. In fact,
the nomination of Mr. Anderson was
a unanimous thing, and met with a
hearty response Irom every Democrat
present. The name of Mr. Firor, of
(Jallia county, a young man of un
doubted integrity and ability, was spo
ken of as a candidate, provided Mr.
Anderson would not accept.
In regard to our candidate, Mr. An
derson, there is, so far as 1 know, but
one opinion, and that is, that he is a
man of unquestionable firmness and
political integrity; and having been the
victorious standard-bearer of the De
mocracy ot (he 8th Senatorial District
in lb53, and having discharged his
trust with ability and credit to lunisell
and honor to the Democracy, we leel
that the Democracy oi the Distrcl are
perfectly sale in again relying upon
success with a man who is so justly
and universally loved and admired by
