State Colored Convention.

Report of the Business Committee.

EQUALITY IN ALL RESPECTS CLAIMED.

WELLS AND THE CONSTITUTION.

DR. HARRIS SPEAKS.

SECOND DAY.

The Convention met at 9 o'clock, Bayne in the chair. The minutes were read by the secretary, who, by way of fancy touches put in a few extra sentences. Bayne moved that all the minutes be adopted after striking out all that nonsense about "wasting ammunition," and all that sort of thing. He wanted that left to scurrilous writers. After the transaction of other unimportant business, Hobson offered a resolution that the Convention go into secret session.

Norton and others opposed this. Troy made a speech, in the course of which he opposed the Walker ticket, and said that everybody who did not vote the Wells ticket would be marked.
