McClwllau, I cannot ro main quiet upon this occasion without replying to tho charges ot tho distin ruisihod rontleman from Maryland. Uoeiilv do I regret, Mr. President, that tho first assault on tho Demo cratic organization in this campaign 'omes from a man who claims to bo a democrat ; and much moro do I re- erret. and I am astonished at tho man ncr in which tho chargo was made, una u.t u. i.-otor of tho chargo it- bolt, l uo not impuio to ino genuo man a desire to wilfully and delih cratelv misroprosent tho facts: but, nevertheless, tho btatements as tnado aro untrue, as I bono I may be ablo to convinco vou.

McClellan arrest 1 find that tho paper from which tho U'entleman roaiLs, u tho jNow lork Tribune, and in replying to him I will also reply to his worthy associato, Mr. Greelev. of tho Tribune. At tho timo tlioso arrests were ordered, tho Mary land Legislature wero in session at Annapolis. George Joseph Johnson was in command of tho rebel army at "Winchester, J hero was a conspiracy on foot, and tho four or vo persons hero woro tho conspirators between Goh. Johnson and this Legislature to accomplish tho invasion of Maryland. This Legi.slaturo was in communica tion with General Joo. Johnson, ono of tho best and most distinguished Generals in tho Confederate army. This Legisltituro was to havo passed an ordiuanco of secession tho geutlo man knows tho meaning of that term they wero to havo withdrawn to tho town of Frederic and thero issued tho ordinance of secession, and, in di rcct and immediato concort with this ordinance. Johnson was to invado Maryland jvith an overwhelming force ; and certain men in Maryland tho irentlcman can 6tate best who wero to havo arouted the people of Maryland in arms airainst tho sovcr eignty of tho United States. George B. McClellan, then the Commander in-Chief of our armies, had ho acted otherwise han ho did, would have been truiltr of treason himself. know w ell that tho worthy gentleman from Maryland doos not know Georgo 15. McClellan. Ho calls liim a tyrant, - vrn y, sirs, irtticTo tra mt - nran - bo noath tho heavens who is not a tyrant that man is Geortro B. McCfellan. "cheers." If thero is ono man who is a lover of liborly, ono man who lias combined in himself tho gentleness of n woman and the courago of a lion that man in Geortro B. McClellan "Applause." These fact3 1 know my Kolf. They wero represented to mo at tho timo they occurred. I havo them in black and whito from Georgo B. Mc Clellaniniself. Moreovor, but two nights ago, General Burns of tho United States Army, was in this city, ho took tea with mo, and, during tho evening, this .Maryland matter was talked about, and ho told mo the fact that ho had at that timo command of tho American forces at Leosburg for tho purposo of watching tho ellbi ts of Joo Johnson in connection with his nssociatss in Maryland. Ho told mo that ho had been informod by Gon. McClellan, at tho time, of all tho facts, und was instructed to koep watch and ward both over tho traitors within Maryland, and tho traitors beyond the river. '"Applause" Now, sirs, this is a brief btatement of tuo facts. I did not intend, or expoct to havo opened my lips upon this occasion, but before taking my seat I must speak of another point. Tho gentleman has found a nmro'a neet. Tho gentleman tdks of troops being bent by George B. McClethm to suppress tho liberty of tho ballot. Why, tho very order it-ioif Mates in distinct words that tho object of tho troops aont thero was to protect Union citizens, who, it was i'uarod, would bo deprived of their right of a freo voto by intimidation at tho ballot box. Thao aro tho unmis takable historical facts connected with teeso transactions and with theso peo ple. Tiny were men who had boon over in Virginia, and, when our coun try bocamo unfortunately involved in this civil wir, they wero in direct com municatio:i with the tkmthern Gen eral.!, in accordance wua tno laws of war, theso pooplo w ho wero guilty of direct communication with tho eu oiny, and who invited tho iuvrs'on of Maryland, by tho laws of war instead of leirig arrested would have been ex ecuted as Ppies, for bitch they were. They were communicating informa tion to tho enemy. Th-y wern guilty of high treason in furnishing informa tion to tho enemy, and ngaiast thos men and the intended iniunidation at tho polls this or-br wa3 given. My lYiepd, 1 ou'y re to mako this tda'c i;n nt, utid to di-'ubufo your m!:i Is ,f tho no doubt unintentional mistato mcnts set forth by tho distinguished gentleman who govo uttemco to them as they wero published by Horace Greeley. But I will ny thi, that I not only know General McClellan now, but I havo known him from boy hood. I know him when a boy of sixteen, and ft truer Democrat never lived. Cheers.' Ilia whole' heart was inspired with a lovo for tho domocratio party, and ft veneration amounting almost to worship for those great cardinal democratic principles taught by Joilbrson and Madison, and re taught by tho Immortal Jackson. But 1 tell you, knowing this man as I do, I Bay with a cortainty that in pasbing over this timo, in this great emergency of our country, great and distinguished statesmen, men of high ability, deserving tho confidenoo of tho people, and tingling out that man gives tho best evidence, not only of his purity and patriotism, not only or hie qualities as a warier, but of his wiso sagacity as a patriot statesman. "Loud thooring." Mr. W . W. Laton, of Connecticut : Mr. President, as a neighbor and friend of Col. Thomas 11. Soymour, it becomoa my duty as a delegato on this floor to 6tato that it was not the inten tion of tho delegation from Connecti cut to placo him in nomination before this convention. A moro gallant sol dier, a moro accomplished gentlemen, a moro reliablo statesman treads not God's earth than Thomas II. Seymour. No man knows him but what loves him. It is not our intention to place urn in domination. It WnS not Olir intention, and my friend from Mary land who secondod tho nomination and my friend from Ohio placed that namo boforo this convention without our knowledgo, without our consent, and wo had no consent to give, sir, but it was without tho knowledge or consent of Governor Sovntour himself. Thomas II. Seymour, Mr. President, is worthy of any ollico in tho gift of a freo people Thomas II. Seymour lias no superior throughout tins broad land. "Applaus-o." I do not hesi tate to say to this convention what I I would pay to General McClellan himself. Thomas H. Seymour, of nil men of God s moulding, is my candi date. But if tho gentleman from Maryland and tho gentleman from Ohio, and gentlemen from other States see fit to put Col. bevniour in nomination, I, of course have not power u witlnlraw his namo, I hope overy man will voto for him. Many a long summer day will you travel bo foro you can do better. Ono word moro and I havo done. I mako these remarks tumply to (show that Col. Seymour know nothing about this nomination, and cannot bp mixed up in any way with any charge that may bo brought against Gen. McClellan. It is proper for mo to Bay that Georgo B. McClellan and Thomas II. Sey mour havo long been personal friends "Applause." Therefore tho conven tion will understand, and the country will understand, that lhomasll. Sey mours namo was n.sed without his knowledgo ; that it has boon used not by tho request of tho delegation from Connecticut, for I said to my distm guishod friend from Maryland only yesterday that wo did not desiro to placo Col. Seymour in nomination, that Connecticut does not nominato him. If tho states too fit to put liiin in nomination and voto for him as their candidato, Connecticut, of ccurso, will bo found aiding by her voto ; olhcrwiso Connecticut will not cast her voto for Col. Seymour. Mr. Harris, of Maryland : In speaking of Gen.' McClellan I com mented freely on his character, and said I could not ask tho peoplo of Maryland with any kind ot furco 1 could not mako any argument to in induce thorn to voto for him, nor could I ask tho members of that leg' lature, whom I thought ho had treat ed cruelly and tyranieally to go to tho polls and voto for him. I did not say that, having participuted in tho nonn nation and proceedings of thisconven tion, I would not myself abido by tho nomination, whatever nomination might bo made. "Loud cheering." xnosoTVTio Knuw-mc, mignt have m- ferrod as much, from tho fact that I had seconded tho nomination of Thos. II. Seymour ns a candidato in prefer enco to Gcorgo B. McClellan. therefore say that if I ballot in this convention on tho nomination of Pros ident and Vico President, I shall feel myself bound to cast my vote for tho candidate that this convention selects. "Loud cheering." Mr. Saulsbury, of Delaware I beg leavo to withdraw tho name of Gov. Trowcll of Kentucky, proseulod as a candidate for nomination. Mr. Spofford, of Massachusetts : I have roceived both oral and verbal in structions from Franklin Pierce, that in caso of tho mention of his name by any of his friends, from any part of the country, to solicit that uo use shall bo made thereof, in connection with tho nomination for tho Presiden cy. .Whilst Gen. Picrco in his retire ment, shrinks from no duty and no responsibility which can attach to his position and character as ex-president of tho United States, ho feels, sir, that he has received his full sharo of hon ors of that party, and that ho has dis charged his full sharo of tho duties which it devolvod upon him. Believ ing that our success could rest only upon those groat principles wjiich ho sought in his administration to exem plify and to support, his only hope has been and that, I am thankful to know has been gratified that tho old standard of principles f.liou!d not bo abandoned, and that wo should leavo Chicago a united, harmonious, and a to bo successful party. Cheers, j Mr. Wiekhffo, of Kentucky: Mr. Chairman it is true, as tho gentleman from Massachusetts states, that tho delegation from Kentucky, of which I compose a part, had no consultation with the delegation from New Hamp shire, or consulted the distinguished gentleman whoso namo I presented ; but, upon consultation among our selves, looking at tho crisis, and bo- Koving that a man (if experience in matters of statesmanship and great purity of character, was sustain ed us n politician and as a man who was nut connected with any of tho imputations or charges, false or true, connected with tho military or dev.tot io op'-rations of tho nrniY or tho offi cers of tho army, would better an swer tho purosn and carry out tho views of our citizens urelenmr? nt ... i nil times a civilian to a miliUiry man, V o deeidrtl to piVKent the nnnutof ex-; Pm-Mciit Pirn e, ( di (inni he 1 and so well known throughout. tho United States.- But, tir, in obedienco to tho suggestion cf tho gentleman from Massachusetts, though unwillingly, 1 1 now withdraw the nomination oi Franklin Pierce. (Cheers.) Mr. Holsman, of Now Jersey : I movo that . tho nominations uo now cloned, and that we now proceed to tho call by States. Mr. Jones, ot Maryland : I regret exceedingly that tho honorable gen- tkmau who took tho ttanl to uolond Gon. McClellan from tho charges brought up by tho gentleman from Maryland nut that ciefenco upon tho ground that ho did. If ho had put it upon tho ground that General McCiellan had crodiblo information upon which ho rested, then I would havo rested that defence on tho ground on which it was put. But when ho undertakes to rait that defenco upon charges of complicity of any members of tho Maryland Legislature with tho conveyance ot iniormation to Gen. Johnson, or inviting or desiring the invasion of Maryland by any of tho members of that legislature, I beg that this convention will hear mo while I show how untruo is any such impu tation ; although I do not doubt Gen. McClellan was misled by falso witness es on whom ho relied. Gen. Morgan, of Ohio : Will tho gentleman from Maryland grant mo ono word ? I would deeply regret not only to do lnjustico to Maryland, but to any of her gallant sons. Tho in formation wlucil I received, and which in tho hurrv of tho moment I did not btato as ruily as l shouia, was itiai tntj arrest was made upon testimony re garded as credible, and I nctod upon tho assumption that, heariug nothing to tho contrary, that testimony roceiv ed as credible was so. Mr. Jones, of Maryland : So far from this being credible, it has been, from tho timo it wua first started in Maryland down to tho present mo ment, denounced ns a willful and do liberato lie, unsustained by u particlo of testimony. The gentleman was wrong in more of his statements. Tho Legislature of Maryland did not convene at Annapolis ; Annapolis was held by l ederal troops, and Gov. Hicks convened tho Legislature to meet at Frederick. Thero was then no design by meeting at Frederick to meet Johnston or hold any communi cation with him. They had met at 1 rederiek, and thero was a petition sent to that Legndaturo or fomo pro position made, asking it to pass an or dinance of secession. It was referred to n committee That Legislature was overwhelmingly democratic. Ihe chairman of that committee was Mr. Wallis, ono of tho most talented and distinguished sons of Maryland, and a man of ns pure honor und integrity as any man alivo. That committee made a report which was unanimous ly adopted, there being but two or thrco negativo votes, that tho Legisla ture of Maryland then assembled had no power to pass an ordinnnco of so cession. ' Then that theso men, men of honor, men whoso character was dearer to them than thoir lives, that theso men with such a record, that they had no power to pass such tin or dinanco of secession, should havo act cd as they wero accused of acting is an absurdity as well as ft falsehood Thero was not ono particlo of evidence except tho false w itnesscs wdio gavo tho information to Gen. McClellan, and whose names havo never been disclos ed. And, I will say further, that upon this evidence, which tho gentle man says Gen. McClellan considered credible, theso members of tho liCgis- laturo wero arretted and put in prison, sent from on prison to another; from FortMclIenry to Fort Lafayetto and xort arren, nnd kept thero for four teen months by this government. If thero had been this crodiblo evedenco of their complicity with ft dosign to pass an ordinance of secession in order to introduce the Confederate forces into Mnryland, w hy wero they "not tried, even hy a drum-licnd court mar tial? They wero tendered their lib- orty it they w ould sign a parole. Some few of them, overcomo by long COUfillCltiPnt, thw iKi-iltli fniling, nitil their families suffering, did agreo to tho humiliation; but thero wero others and among them tho very men who signed tho report that they had no power to pass an ordmanco of seces sion, who refused to sign any parolo. demanded a trial upon any charges tho government had against them. that, having taken nnd kept them prisoners, without a trial or a formal accusation and the government not very ablo to hud oho witness of any thing imputed to them, that they had u rigm as yvmenean citizens under tho constitution to bo absolutely and un conditionally discharged. They put themselves on that ground, nnd notifi ed the government that they would clio in prison before they would givo anv narolo. I know 1 msn nn'Ti tmr. serially, and thero never wero men moro puro or unrestrained, or who loved their whole cntry, or desired moro sincerely to seo its union restor ed than thoso very men. . What interest had they to mako their State tho Belgium f the Union? No longer than two months ago, in tho constitutional convention now sit ting at Annapolis, this question was raised and tho insinuation mado that thero w as ft purposo on tho part of that .legislature to take somo action looking towards secession nndunfrind ly to the Union. A member of that legislature was a member of tho con vention, and ho got up in his plnco, and in tho face of tho people of Mary land, pronounced tho statement abso lutely and unqualifiedly false. Now let Gen. MeClellan's d-fcnco bo that ho was misled by .ovidenco that ho deemed credible, and let him havo tho benefit of it, for "to err is huniam, to forgivo divine." I could not, Mr. President, as n Marylander, knowing theso men as I do to bo tnio men, true to our democratic principles, after ly ing weary months in casements of forts, whero they havo been so unjust ly nnd cruelly incarcerated, hear them accused as they haYO been here, with out giving the c hargo tho eompletest contradiction tho English langungo will admit. I insist that thn chargo was false ; but I do not believo Gen. McClellan would havo acted on any tcstitwny which ho did not deoin en tirely credible. (Applause and cries of "Question.") Mr. Holsman, of New Jersey: I wi ah to say that I was tho obstinato Jerseymnn among my delegation who opposed tho nomination of Gen. Mc Cloll.in. At tho famo timo believing t'i '.t thii question liu.i been already fully .ventilated nnd that further dis cussion cannot do any good, I renew my motion to close tho nominations and call tho States. (Cries of "Ques tion.") Mr. Ixng : I appeal to my ineud from New Jersey to permit mo for a low moments to address tho conven tion. (A voice, "Freo speech.") I ask the courtesy of tho gentleman for a brief permit to say a fww words m relation to tho candidates. Cries of "No, no," "Freo speech." Mr. Holsman: 1 came here opposed to tho nomination of .Gen. McClellan, because I did not consider it one which ought to bo made, but in deference to tho wishes or my thirteen associates, I yieldod. This question has been thoroughly discussed on both sides, and further discussion will not change a single vote, so I must insist on my motion. Mr. Long: I havo beforo been pro vented from expressing myself upon tho resolutions. I now appeal to my friend from New Jersey not to striko down tho freedom of speech in a dem ocratic convention. Mr. Holsmnu : I myself to somo iittlo extent, though not us much as many gentlemen hero, havo suifered for freo speech. It is two years ago that I was tho first to proposo in any assemblage an armistice and n conven tion. Mr. IiOng: I believo having tho floor, I havo n right to proceed. Mr. Holsman called for tho previous question. Mr. O'Brien, of Illinois : I desiro tJ timKo ' a uviulnnitr aiul it that purpose I ask, as a favor, that , tho gentleman from New Jersey will w ith draw Ins motion. Mr. Holsman declinod to do so. Mr. O'Brien : I movo that tho con vention do now adjourn. "Cries of no, no." I do not desiro to interrupt tho proceedings of this convention or to make any argument. I desiro sim ply to place in nomination a gentlo man whoso namo would bo a rock and ft tower of strength to tho democratio party. And, in behalf of ft portion of the delegates ol Illinois and a majority ot the people ol tho .Northwest, lnow place in nomination his Excellency Horatio Seymour, of New York. "Immense cheering, renewed over and over again, followed this announce ment. Tho President : Tho gentleman is not in order. "Laughter and ap plause." Tho question is upon tho motion of tho gentleman irom iSew Jersey lor the previous question. Mr. Olds, of Ohio : I movo that when this convention adjourn it nd joum until to-morrow morning at 10 o clock. Mr. Long eallod for tho voto by eiuies. Mr. Powell, of Kentucky : I np peal to tho gentleman from New Jer soy to withdraw his motion. I never was in a deliberative body whero tho previous question was used to prevent ft nomination for ft candidato, nnd I hope that illiberal principle will nover prevail m ft democratic convention. Mr. Holsman said lie had no such intention in offering tho motion, which. he then withdrew. Mr. Olds : I wish to stato to tho gentlemen of tho convention that in fifteen minutes it will bo entirely dark nnd there is no way to light this build ing, nnd, thcreiore, I renow my mo tion to adjourn until to-morrow morn ing nt 10 o'clock. Tho motion was put and lost. Mr. Long, of Ohio : 1 have but ft very few words to say, and I proposo to say them ; and I am not afraid to speak what I think, even in tho faeo ot gentlemen who don t want to hear, I havo faced tho mubio beforo, nnd I am willing to do it hero. Although I had tho honor, with tho gentleman from Maryland, (Mr Harris) of being put down by points f order, that ho and 1 aro both lamihar with, in a re publican Congress, yet I proposo to givo my views briefly of tho qualifica tions of ft candidato proposes for the l residency in tins campaign. Now, goutlomen of tho convention, what havo wo complained of for tho ldkt tiivpo or four years ? What has boon tho burden of our complaiut ngainsi jir. jincolu and his ndmims tration? Holms abridged the freo. dom of speech ; ho has arbitrarily ar rested citizens and confined them ia Bastiles, and ho has interfered with tho freodom of elections. What havo VOU 1m1lOSed OT! lur rnenlnt Inna V You have to ft certain cxtont vindicat ed tho freodom of speecji; you havo condemned arbitrary arrests and de nounced interference with tho freedom of elections ; and yet you proposo in Goo. B. McClellan to placo upon tho platform ono wdio has gono further in all three of theso measures .than has Abraham Lincoln himself. "Iliaso and applause." Geo. B. McClellan has not contendod himself with tho ar rest of a citizen hero and there and incarcerating him innBastilo, but has arrested an entiro legislature at ono order. lie has also tu'snended tho writ of habeas corpvt of which you have complained; "Voices, novcr." Ho has ncqiiM'sced in tho emancipation proclamation of which you have com plained "loud cries of 4no'." of Mr. Lincoln ; and yot you proposo, in tho very faeo of tho denunciations you havo heaped upon tho head of - Mr. jancoin, to stulUly yoursolves by tak ing up ft man who has been ft suplo instrument of Abraham Lincoln for carrying out tho very acta you do nouneo. ' Gentlemen, what did wo como horo for ns representatives of tho great democratic party ? Tho people aalc for peace. "Applause." Their eyes havo boon tamed to this convention- mill ions of hearts nro this ovenimr. while we' are assembled here, waitin" in anxious suspense to know ns to the platform and candidato vou aro to irivo them, that will cither send a thrill of joy to thoir breasts or will strike them down with terror. What is it that is weighing moro heavily upon them than anything olso ? A draft is to tako placo on tho fifth day of this monin-r-nvo clays lrom to-Iav. A Delegato : I riso t'o ft point of order. Tho gentleman is out of order lor ho is not speaking to the qualifica tions of tho candidate in nomination. Mr. Ixjng : That is just wiiat I am doing in my humble way, and I proposo to do it, "Lnughtcr.'l On yesterday A voice interrupting : "Will you voto for tho man who fhall bo nomi nated ?" Mr. Long: I expect to voto for tho man nominated here. "Cheers." I Tuvor havo done otherwise. 1 have jievcr voted anything but a democrat ic tukot troia my hrst voto to this j hour. Although I am opposod to Mc Clellan ; although I thinlc ho is the wort man you could put upon tho ticket having tho namo of a democrat, "applauso and hisses." I would still chooso him before Lincoln or Fremont and cast my voto with my friends. If that bo my lot, I expect to do it. Cheers." Now, gentlemen, 1 say tho people aro looking to this convention to tako some action -to givo them a candidate and a platform to do some thing, at loast, whereby thoy will, af ter tho coming election, see, or have at least a hope for tho early end of this war. To that end on yesterday, I submitted to this convention ft resolu tion proposing to urge Mr. Lincoln to suspend tho operation of tho draft-un-til wo could havo an opportunity in tho election of November noxt to lot the peoplo say whether tlio war is to bo continued or not. "Applauso." And, although it proposod linmodiato action, by tho niancouvcring of cer tain gentlemen w ho nro versed in par liamentary tactics, it had to go to tho Committee on llcsolutions. The com mittee havo made their report, and my resolution and everything olso in referonce to this draft, that ftll'ects the pooplo moro than anyting clso, is pass ed over hi perfect 6ilenco.

Mr. Long : I will yield to colleaguo Mr. Fries : I movo that wo adjourn till 10 o clock to-morrow morning. On being informed that Mr. Long wished to say but a lew words moro, Mr. l iies withdrow his motion. Mr. Long: In conclusion I beg you not to nominato McClollan. llav ing laid upon tho tablo tho timo hou ored principles of tho democratic par ty, as cxpressod in tho resolutions of lrJSJ-i'U having ignored them by- laying tlio resolutions upon tho tablo and weak ns your platform is, look ing in somo degreo to peace, as it does, in God's namo don't placo upon it a man who is pledged to ovory act against which your platform declares. I am not satisfied with tho answer of my colleaguo from Ohio, Gen. Morgan, that Georgo B. McClellan was acting under orders of tho President. Ho was not obliged to mako theso arrests, and thus givo his sanction and np proval to them. Was ho acting under tho orders of Abraham Lincoln when, on the 4 th day of July, ho delivered nn oration at West Point, in which ho announcod tho eamo doctrino ? Was ho acting under tho orders of Abraham Lincoln when at Iinko Georgo he made ft spocch in which ho also proposod a continuance of thn war ? If in ono caso, ho was acting under orders, m the other ho was net ing under his own impulses, and I ask of this convention what it is to expect of him after his speeches at West Point and .Lace George. Thoy are directly opposed to a pcaco platform, and if ho accopts a nomination upon it, after what ho has said, ho stultifies himself, and in my judgment, is un worthy tho support of tho democratic party. "Hisses and cries of never." Mr. Carrigon, of Pennsylvania : desire, in answer to tho remarks of tho gentleman who has iust taken his seat, that'Gcn. Geo. I. McClellan should speak for himself. "Choers." In relation to tho proclamation of emancipation with which tho honora ble gentleman has charged collusion, between hun and tho Prcsidont, ad dressing a letter to Gon. A. K. Bum side in regard to the North Carolina cxpodition, what doos Gon. McClellan say r "In no caso would I go beyond tho goncrnl proclamation of a com mander which would say as Iittlo as possible about politics or tho negro. "Chocrs." I would merely stuto tho truo issuo for which wo aro fighting as the preservation ot tho Union of theso States, "renowed cheering," nnd the upholding of tho laws of tho gonoral government ; nnd that all who con duct themselves properly will, as far as possiblo, bo protected in their per sonal property ." Then, sir, what does ho write to Maj. Gon. Hallock in re gard to tho military conduct of offi cers ? "You will please impress upon the inhabitants ot Missouri and tho adjacont Statos that wo aro fighting solely lor tho integrity of tho Union, "applauso," to uphold tho power of tho national government, and restoro to tho nation tho blessings of peace and good order." And then what docs ho say to Gen.- Buell, commanding tho department of Kentucky? -Ho says to Gen. Buell, "It is possiblo that tho conduct of our imlitical affairs in Ken tucky is moro important than that of nil ! 1 ?4.i . l! T i l uuuiuijr vjnTiiuoiia. x certainly cannot over-cstimato tho importanco of tho former. You will ploaso con stanlly bear in mind tho prociso issuo for which' wo aro fighting ; that it is for tho preservation of tho Union." "Cheers." Tnen, sir, as if he had not impressed as fully as ho ought to havo impressed it, ho writes another letter to Gen. Buell, commanding tho Department, of Kentucky, in which ho says: "In regard to political affairs in Kentucky, bear in mind that we aro fighting only to prosorvo tho integrity Of tho Union, nnd uohold tho Doner of tho general government. "A voice, wo hao all read that." I mean by this that it is tho desiro of tho gov ernment to avoid unnecessary nnd cau.o Iofs arrest! and the persecution of iunividuals. . If thoro is u good reasons to bcliove that persons aro giving cud and iniormation the enomy, it is of course necessary to arrost thoni, but I havo always found that it is tho tendency of subordinates to mako ar rest mostly on suspicion." Gen. Geo. B. McClellan in theso lottors speaks for himself. "Cheers." .He said in North Carolina, whero Gon. Burnsido went, lie was to impress tlio iooplo with tho importance of maintaining tho Union with tho importanco of what carried luin there. So in Mis souri and so in Kentucky. Dospito tho vindictive assaults here indulged in, George 15. McClellan, to-day is as deeply nnd firmly imbeded in tho hearts of tho American pooplo as tho granito in tho mountains and tlio iron ore-beds of his uativo Pennsylvania. "Loud and enthusiastic applauso." Mr. Holsman, of Now Jersey : I movo that tho nominations close, and that wo procood to voto for tho candi dato for Prosident by States; and upon that motion I movo tho previ ous question. . Mr. Fries, of Ohio : I riso to a priv ileged question. I movo that wo ad journ till to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock. Tho President : That ia not a priv ileged quostion. ' Mr. Fries : Then I movo tlio mo tion for tho provious question bo laid on tho tablo, and that tho voto bo taken by States. Tho Prosidont : Tlio chair docidos that the motion to lay on tho tablo is not in order. Mr. Frios : I appeal from that de cision. ... Tho President : Tho decision of tho chair is that tho motion is not in or der, tho motion beforo the convention being for tho previous question. Tho gentloman lrom Ohio, "Mr. I nes " ap poals fiom this docision of tho chair. I ho quostion being, "bhall tho de cision of tho chair stand as tho judg ment of tho convention," it was so or- dorod. Mr. Fries, of Ohio ; I would ask if it is tho expectation of tho members of this convention that we shall bo able to concludo our proceedings to night ? "Voices of yes and no." ask tho gentlemen who say "yes," what preparation has been mado to lighten this room to enable us to mako any progress. I, for one, now stato that I do not proposo to sit horo in tho dark. Tho motion to adjourn being sub mitted was lost. Tho Prosident : I would call tho at tention of tho gontlomen of tho con vention to tho fact that it is utterly impossiblo to transact business in this confusion. Mr. Biglcr, of Pennsylvania : I riso in tho namo of ono of tho groat Statos of this Union to appeal to my broth er delegates to act at lonst in common order and good feeling. Wo havo now rcachod a point in our dolibera tions at which wo can terminate thorn directly and unequivocally in tho morning, while it may be truly said wo cannot do so to-night, let us, therefore, by common consent, fix an hour ftt which, wo will cssoniblo in tho morning. Thoso in favor of adjourn ing will say aye. "Many voices, nye, and much laughter." I beg tho pardon of tho chair. I do not moan to bo taken quito so literally. "Laugh tor and applauso." Mr. President, I movo that wo do now adjourn until 10 o clock to-morrow morning. Tho President : I wish to mako an announcement. The chairman of tho several delegations will call at tho rooms of tho National Conimitteo, at tho Sherman Houso, at 8 o clock to morrow morning, to receivo thoir tick cts of admission. It is moved and soconded that tho convention adjourn untiL 10 o clock to-morrow morning. Thoso in favor of that motion will say "nyo" and those of a contrary opinion will 6ay "no." Tho motion prevailed, and tho con vention adjournod until Wednesday morning at 10 o clock. JTedncsditt Proceedings. Convention callod to order at fifteen minutos post ten, A. M.t lior. Halsey, D. I)., of Chicago, openod with prayer. Mr. Wicklitl'o, of Kentucky : I do- Biro to offer a resolution, which I re gard as ft privilegod quostion, in ref erence to tho future existence nnd tho continuanco of tho organization of this convention. I hope, if it is not a privileged quostion, thero will bo unan imous consent upon it I am satisfied thero can bo no oxcoption to it. The delegations from tho West, including that State, to which I am attached aro of tho opinion that circumstances may occur between this and tho fourth of March that will inak it necossary for tho great mass of tho democracy of this country to bo reassembled. To get up a new convention is a work of delay and much difficulty-and my ob ject is that tho dissolution of this con vention shall not bo affected by its ad journment, after it finishes its labors to day, but to leave it to tho Exocutive Committee, at tho instanco of tho do mocraay, if any occasion shall roquiro to conveno us at such timo and placo as tho Exocutive National Committoo shall designate : . J!f8okrd, fThat tho convention shall not be dissolved by the adjournment at tho closo of its businoss, but shall remain as orgnuized, subject to be callod together at any timo and placo that tho Executlvo national Committo shall designate. "Which resolution was rocoived with applauso and carried unanimously. Tho convention after a Iittlo delay proceoded to voto by States for a can didato for the Presidency of tho United States, tho first voto resulting for Geo. B. McClollan, 174 ; Thos. II. Seymour, oS ; Horatio Seymeur, 12 Charles t)'Conner, J; Blank, 1 votes, cast by three of tho Michigan delegates. This voto was subsequently changod by tho States to tho following result : McClellan, '202i ; Thos. It. Seymour, '2' h Necessary to a choico, 150. Tho announcement of tho chango of Stato after Stato to McClellan was greeted by bursts of applauso from all parts of tno house, but when tho ro sult of tho ballot was announced, tho vast audienco surrendered itself to tho wildcstcnthusiasm. Shout after shout from the assembled thousands, ming ling with tho thunders of cannon and tho swelling strains of music, swept out from that building. For over fif teen miuutes tho tumultuous applauso continued. Gontlemen upon chairs swung their hats. Indies waved their handkerchiefs. Every ono joined in on grand shout of joy, caught up and echoed back and baik o.iin by tho eager and enthusiastic thousand's who wero unablo to gain admission. As the vast aesemblago was again ruVsidiug to its wanted docoium, a number of members of tho McClollan Executlvo Committee, of Now York entered the hall with ft largo and hnndsorao banner, bearing ft portrait of tho hero of Antietam, and tho fol lowing omblasoned upon it in largo characters: "McClellan, our Coun try's Hopo and Pride;" and "If I cannot havo tho command of ovon my own men all I ask is to sharo their fato upon tho field of battle." Tlio Bannor was carried to tlio canopy bo hind tho President's chair, whero it was elvated, amidsttho wildest enthusi asm of tho poople, on tho 6ight of that flag under which tho bravo and gallant "Iittlo Mao" gavo such distin guished services to his country. Gilmoro's Baud, from Boston, which had been introduced upon tho floor, saluted tlio banner with "Hail to tho Chief!" This, ft second timo, invoked tho enthusiasm of tho audienco, wliich found expression as beforo in thunders of applauso and in tho waving of hand kerchiefs. Considornblo timo was 6pcnt in spocch making, after which tno con vention proccodod to tho nomination of ft candidato for tho Vico Presiden cy, which rosulted in tho selection of Georgo II Pendleton, of Oluo, on tho second ballot by a unanimous voto. Sovoral resolutions of various kinds wero then adopted, after which, at twenty minutJS bcloro throo o clock tho President doclarod the convention adjournod, subject to tho call of tho National Committee. Tho asscmblago broko up after giv ing nino rousing cheers for the ticket. DIAR1ICEA AND DYSENTERY.
