The special order of the day - the resolution of Mr. Rapier, of Alabama, repudiating the Labor Reform and Cincinnati conventions was then called up, and its consideration deferred until twelve o'clock. A telegram from the HOn. John M. Langston was read to the convention. It was addressed to Colonel J. H. Ingraham, first vice president of the colored convention, and reads as follows: I have just returned from Cincinnati en route to convention. Prevented form coming by freshet. Douglass is on the way. Let our demand be "legal equality." This will be seconded by passage of civil rights bill. Congress will not adjourn without its passage. It will probably be done next week. Mr. F. G. Barbados informed the convention that Mr. Fred Douglass and party would arrive about twelve o'clock last night. They had been detained on the road forty-eight hours by freshets.
