the decision, but in doing so desired to make some closing remarks. He said his conduct in the convention the previous day had been misrepresented by the National Republican of this city. This paper had so repeatedly villified and misrepresented him that, under ordinary circumstances, he did not feel called upon to refute its slimy and villainous slanders. But he would call the attention of members of the convention to the last attack of the filthy sheet that pretends to be Republican because it pretends to relate what occurred in the convention. Members have only to read the statement of the paper in question in regard to his conduct in the convention the previous day to find out that it has willfully and maliciously misrepresented him. That paper had done all it could to drive him out of the Republican party, but that can not be done. It is true he does not favor the renomination of Mr. Grant, but he did not think this could be construed into sufficient cause for reading him out of the Republican party.
