For many reasons we should be glad
to see Hon. Claiborne Snead continued

not the least among them is, that, in
our opinion, an artful, designing and
deliberate conspiracy was formed to re
move him, at the end of his present
term, from his seat on the bench.

Shades of ev’ning, close not o’er us,
Leave our lonely bark awhile ;

Isle of Beauty, fare thee well.

Smile around the taper’s light;
Who will fill our vacant places?
Who will sing our songs to-night ?
Through the mist that floats above us,
Faintly sounds the vesper bell,
Like a voice from those who love us,
Breathing fondly, fare thee well!
When the waves are round us breaking,
As I pace the deck alone,
And my eye is vainly seeking
Some green leaf to rest upon ;
When on that dear land I ponder,
Where mv old companions dwell,
Absence makes the heart grow fonder;

Mr. Wm. M. Dunbar said Mr.
Fleming stated that the Democracy
of Richmond county were almost
unanimously in favor of Hon. A. H.
Stephens for Governor. He denied
that such was the fact and thought
that those opposed to him should be
allowed to put themselves on record.
He moved that the delegates appoint
ed go to the convention uniostructed.
Maj. Ganahl offered the following
as a substitute to Mr. Dunbar’s
motion: . . : ,
Resolved, That the Democracy of
Richmond hear with pleasure and
gratification that the distinguished
Representative in Congress of the
Eigth Congressional District, Hon.
Alexander H. Stephens will be pre«
sented in the Convention on the 19th
of July for nomination as the Demo
cratic candidate for the Chief Magis
tracy of the State.
Resolved, That while some of us
may have differed with Mr. Stephens
as to questions of minor policy, no
son of the land has served his country
with more conspicuous purity, use
fulness, abiljjy, fidelity and patriot
ism, none has been longer tried, none
found more faithful to the principles
of Democracy, not one has more en
deared himself to our party and peo
ple ; that we, therefore, congratulate
that party, and that people upon the
event of his nomination, and pledge
ourselves to use every honorable
method to secure so auspicious a
Resolved, That we see in the
nomination and election of Mr. Ste
phens to the office of Governor the
oblivion of bitterness and strife which
shall grow from that rule of Wisdom
and Moderation and Justice which
characterize the man and form the
three pillars which have been set as
the seal of our noble State.
Major Ganahl’s resolutions were
put and carried almost unanimously.
Leonard Phinizy, Esq., said he
believed the next business in order

Mr. H. H. Hickman said he never
held an office; neither was a military
man. He once belonged to the Sil
ver Greys, who proposed to fight,
bleed and die on the borders of tbjfc
town [laughter.] Neither was he a
politician, but he had come to this
meeting as a citizen and a Democrat.
He offered the following resolutions,
which were unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That the Democracy cf
Richmond, having every love for the
person, pride in the ability, aqd con
fidence in the judgment, temper and
exalted moral worth of their fellow-
citizen, Hon. Jas. C. C. Black—
coupled as these qualities are with a
rare gift of logical and persuasive
eloquence qualified in every particu
lar to represent this District in Iho
Congress of the United States.
Resolved, That animated'with this
conviction, and in ’ the "'confident as-_
surance that the Democracy of the
Eighth District would be served by
no one with more eminent ability, in
tegrity, usefulness and honor, this
meeting unanimously presents the
Hon. James C ; C. Black, of Rich
mond, for the 1 suffrages of ‘he Con

party of Richmond county, in mass
meeting assemble'!, look with pride
on the able and efficient manner with
which our esteemed fellow-citizen,
the Hon, Wm. A. Wright, has dis
charged the duties of the office of
Comptroller-General, and earnestly
recommend him for renomination
to that office.
On motion of C. H. Cohen, Esq.,
the chairman was instructed to
appoint an Executive Committee for
the next two years at his leisure.
A motiou by Mr. John F. Arm
strong that seven members of the
Committe constitute a quorum, was

A dispatch from Danville, 111., dated
June 22d, says that Allie Mills, aged
fourteen years, Mary Oglie, agsd seven
teen. and Mary Jones, aged twelve,
committed suicide this morning, by ta
king arsenic. Allie Millls gave as a rea
son for her act, that her sister lived
with a shameless woman, Mary Oglie’s
reason was that she was an orphan, and
Mary Jones took the drug beoause the
neighbors than the election of a county offloer. ,, ,
