many men of talent and cultivation present before. And to this fact, perhaps, as well as to the general progress of liberal and just sentiments, was due the fact that the Convention had been treated with such marked courtesy and respect by the newspapers. There had been no low flings in their reports, with but one exception; and members bad been designated as 'Gentlemen,' Reverend,' Senator,' &c. without the use of any low epithets so common heretofore. It was another remarkable fact, that, though they came here in the midst of a warm political contest, not a word of political partisanship or strife had been heard. He concluded, by moving that the President be authorized to have the minutes of this Convention published in pamphlet form, for distribution, pro rata, among the members of the Convention, which was agreed to.

Mr. Burch offered the following:

"RESOLVED, That the thanks of this Conference be returned to the Mayor, citizens, journals, reporters of the city paper and officers of this Convention, for the many courtesies extended to the delegates."

The resolution was adopted by a hearty and unanimous vote, and the Convention adjourned. sine die.
