Mr. Pinchbank asked to have the vote on the resolution delayed until to-day, as he held in his hand a dispatch from Mr. Fred Douglass, stating that he would arrive here in a few hours.
Mr. Cardoza, the acting chairman, asked the convention if it was prepared for the previous question. The question was then put and decided in the affirmative. Under this decision the chair announced that through the operation of the previous question the introducer of the resolution had the right to speak one hour.
Mr. Rapier then availed himself of his privilege to close the debate, and after speaking thirty minutes in support of his resolution, yielded the balance of his time to such other gentlemen as were anxious to say a few words before taking a vote upon the resolution.
