At the expiration of the hour a vote upon the resolution was demanded, and the yeas and nays called for. The resolution was adopted—yeas 27, nays 17.
The convention then unanimously adopted Mr. Pinchback's resolution indorsing Mr. Sumner, and adjourned until half-past seven in the evening.
The convention was called to order last evening at eight o'clock. After the usual preliminaries, Mr. Stevens, of Virginia, moved that the regular order of the day be postponed, owing to the great pressure of business. Amended by Mr. J. Sella Martin, by offering the following resolution:
Resolved, That the speakers who have been invited to speak this evening have declined on account of the great pressure of business.
