Mr. Cardoza said that it was understood that the convention would adjourn on Saturday. He hoped that it would not, as a large number of distinguished gentlemen would not arrive until that day. The convention decided not to adjourn until Monday.

A telegram was received from J. J. Spellman, a delegate, dated Jackson, Mississippi, who said he would be here on Saturday; also stating that Frederick Douglass had passed Jackson.
