The national demo cratic convention was called to order to day at 12 m., and Gov. Hubbard, f Tex as, made temporary chairman. Kelly made an effort to have the unit rule se aside. Kelly had seid that if the unit rule prevailed that Tammany world wii'l-d.aw.

Doo'ittle from Wisconsin wished to leavM the matter wilh New York. Motion to leave the amendment to t ie committee on organization, lost. Judge Coi hvin, of New York.speaki ig in favor of (irady's amendment, said that unless It 'was adopted the wishes of a very hrge number of the people of N vv York would n stilled. Said the ques tion as to whom New York should vote for did not come up in the state com - n tien was the reason no protest wa:s ma1?, Cleary of California, also spoke in i'ti vor of the amendment. Powers, of Michigan, spoke in favor of the amei d raent, ami said that it was a great den civ. tic principle that the humblest distr ict should be representad. Carter Harrison, Mayor of Chicago, : n talcing the floor was received with cliees; lie said that the convention had nothi g to do with state instructions, and tl at every delegate luis u right to be heard. Senator Jacclw, of New York, spo'.e against the amendment, and f.aid that he bent to the superior will of the states, though the amendment was in accord ance with his feelings. Kelly then took the floor amid great cheering. He thanked the convention for tho liberal views that had been ex pressed, and stated that thfaction of the state had left him no alternative but to apjea to the convention; he hoped tl at the comities interested would not be di franchi.vd. Fellows again took the floor and said there was a misconception of the question; the question was whether New York has a right to siy how the will of the majority shall bo represented. A discussion then arose between Fellows and Kelly as to the man ner of their election as delegates. Kelly said that the manner of election was :d:-o, hut according to Mr. Fellow's op: 1 i i Pi Ke'.l .) wps to have :io represen v iion except through Fellows.

TELEGRAPHIC SPARKLES, THE IjATEST NEWS FROM ALL PARTS BY WIRE AND CABLE. CONGRESS ADJOURNED. Wasaixgton, July 7. When the day's business was finished, the presiding offi cers of each , house of congress declared that body adjourned without day. The first session of the 48th congress has ex tended over a period of seven months a d tour day ?, atho gh the actual workir.g time will not eaceed one hundred a d aixt3-liv; d iVS.

THEY WILL NOT FUMIGATE. Washington", July 7. In response to a request of the United States post office department, that tho French mails for America via England be fumigated to avoid the possibt ity of conveying chole ra germs to thin ccuntry, tho British pest ofiice has telegrapheil that these mails will hereafter Ik? separated from the Eng lish inaib, and stowed in another part of the mail stearasl: ;p. As this reply elces not indicate a disposition on the part ef the British government to comply with tho original renaist,that government will be informed that the United States post ofllco department will allow the health officers of Amer can ports to determine the question as to whether the proposed separation ef the mails is a sufficient pre caution to exempt other mails on the same vessels from quarantine. A NEW COUNTERFEIT. Washington, July 7. The secret ser vice division of the treasury department has received advices that a new counter feit ten dollar silver certificate has a; peared in the west. It is supposed to have been printed from a wood cut, but is likely to deceive an ordinary judge of money. The notes are a quarter of an inch shorter than the genuine. On the back where it should read, "and all pub lic dues anel when so received," the wo "d 'all" is entirely omitted, and the won i?, "when so" are tied together as one word. There are numerous other elefects which judges of paper money will readily dis cover. Iteer lrinkiio anel Heart Disease. From tlie Philadelphia Medical News. The habitual consumption of beer in excessive quantities tenuis to hypertrophy by dire'ct action of alcohol upon the heart, by the erormous amount of fluid intro dneteel ii to the 1 rxly, and by the eas iy ussLinlated ladii.ive constituents of t .e j !er it.-clf. bur hermore such habits j re i often as. oei ed with great bodily act v iiy and at ly-t r elatively luxurious nu a- ! veroti'te.

Bird,a prominent citizen of Live Oak, died last week. New sweet potatoes have put in an ap pearance at Green Cove Springs. The saurian panic is over at Fort Og den and ludes are selling readily at fifty cents each. The corner stone of the agricultural college at Lake City has been robbed of its contents. A sweet potato measuring 24J by 29 inches has just been unearthed at Prae Level, Manatee county. John D. Wood, of Lauraville, was kill ed by an overdose of chloral, which he took without suicidal intent a few days ago. On account of telegraphic dispatches being unfavorable, the cattle gathered at Fort Ogden for shipment to Cuba hsve been turned, loose. Only $25 in Spanish paper ij oered, including duties and ex penses: ".ot more than $12 per head ne'. Bellevieu, the new town 12 miles south of Ocala, on the Florida Railway and Navigation Company's road, is building rapidly. A commodious brick store is now in course of erection, and seveial residences are in the hands of the car penters. E. B. Camp, of Braidentown, was ; t tacked on Thursday last by a large bet. He was walking along, when the huge reptile sprang upon him and coiled itself around his arm, but after a hanl strug gle,he succeeded in dispatching his snake ship, which, when measured, was found to bo ly inches in length. Apalachicola Tribune: Greene Wilson, assistant fireman on the steamer Caddo Belle, was drenvned in a very mysterious way one night last week. The watchman called Greene at 12:30 o'clock a. m. io take his place, and several of the deek passengers saw Wilson pass by them go ing to the furnaces. This was the last seen or heard of him. It is supposed that he fell overboard and was drowned, but if lie did f all into the water no one hea- d the noise. The Caddo Belle discovered a Ixxly on this side of Iola,but some agree el that it was the remains of a white man. Apalachiola Tribune: Capt. Mason's vessel arrived in port the other day, and was boarded by the pert physicians, who demanded the regular fee. Mason reftis ed to pay this fe-e, and, hoisting his sails, came to town. This being in direct op position to the quarantine laws,the Mayor lined Mason .aO. Mason was required to give a bond for his appearance, and was placed under the charge of Marshal Lovett, who, not thinking that Mason in tended '"playing him," let him loose. As soon as he was from under tlie eye of t"ic officer, lie hoisted bis sails and left. He did the same thing last year.
