Your Committee beg leave to recommend to the Convention the name of Mr. F. G. Barbadoes, as a member from the District of Columbia. S. C. ANTOINE, Chairman.
On motion of Mr. SIMMS, of Georgia, the report was agreed to. Mr. MEYERS, of Maryland, moved that a Committee of one from each State, on Permanent Organization, be appointed by the Chair.
The motion was agreed to.
The CHAIRMAN announced the following as said Committee:
Isaac Meyers, of Maryland; James T. Rapier, of Alabama; J. H. Johnson, of Arkansas; F. J. Barbadoes, of District of Columbia; E. Belcher, of Georgia; P. B. S. Pinchback of Louisiana; S. H.
