Among those in attentlaiice on the convention, though Tjot'a delegate, is the Governor's private secretary, Ueo.

The tongue, when out, brought with, U a part of the animal's Jights and a stream of blooif. The suffering beast fell, and, be- ing urged up, WHS -unhitched ai.d led away lo tlie beach probably to die.

CAUTIOX TO to tlic increasing cost of vanilla used in the manufacture of .Extract Vanilla, spurious compounds are Dicing thrown upon the market, purporting lo be pure vanilla, but prepared princi- pally from-Tonqun beans.

It is used principally hy.tobuoconists for pf-'rfuming snliif and cigars, and "w never intended to be used as a flavoi-i for the various compounds prepared t'oT; the human stomach.

FLAKE Co. OyE of tbe most important eases that has come before tbe Supreme Court for years will be argued iu that coin-t oa the llth of January. It comes from the District Court in California, nnd in- volves the right of any State to enact a statute excluding certain persons from landing within her borders. Some years ago California n pro- hibiting the landing of Chinese women in that State. Subsequently twenty- two Chinese women were taken in an effort to.lnnd. Judge Field of the Su- preme Court, while holding court on his circuit, discharged- twenty of tbe women, retaining the others in order that tbe case might be brought lo the Supreme Court. On account of its im- portance it has been advanced on tliu calendar, and will be argued at the time stated. Attorney General Pievrepout will tbe case us against the State of California, and he to-day linished bis brief. The direct hearing of the case is on otir treaty stipulations with China, nnd raises the question whether a State can Bay who shall and who shall not land on the shores of the United States. Judge. Picrrepont will argue that Hie action of California not only violates our treaty provisions with China, but also the Federal authority, Chief Justice Taney once decided a case of similar character during tbe exist- ence of holding that a State bad the right to exclude anybody from her territory. TJIEIIE are some incongruities iu tbe salaries paid to Slate officers in Michigan. The Governor draws n sal- ary of but J1000, while that of the Rail way Commissioner is The sala- ries of the Secretary of Slate, Commis sioner of the Luiul OEUce and Attorney General are and these are tbe only State functionaries drawing less com- pensation than tbe Governor. Honors count in that State. But it is thought best to pay Canal' Commissioners and those liable to temptation reasonable salaries, "lest they be poor and steal.

The witnesses lio be examined or; those wbo saw the were mulcted ays rates. Ix the L'nited States men arc employed in mining and tons of coal are mined yearly. The business is extra hazardous to human, life. The most dangerous mines in the United States arc in Schuylkill county, Penn- sylvania, one man being killed there for tons mined. One man killed in England for every -tons mined, one in Pennsylvania for every tons, and one in Ohio for every liKJ.OOO tons.

Mr. Wellborn, of Dallas, in with- drawing the name of Mr. Adams, paid that gentleman a handsome1 and de- served compliment: Mr. I'midenl: I wish to say but n word iu favor of Gol. Adams who is not present: lie is my personal friend. I know him well, and I know that there is uo one hi Texas more wedded to the glorious priuciplcs of Democracy than .he, and, although I nominated him for the otlice of elector at large, nnd did so because I know him so thoroughly. I now, in.-tlic same spirit which actuate rae in nominating Col. Adams, which was in the belief that I was but doing mv duty to the Democratic: party, I withdraw the name of Col. Adams. He then moved that tbe nomination of Mr. Epperson be made by acclania-. tion, which was done. !Mr. Epperson was escorted to the stand, and proceeded to say: si'KECir OK srit. EPPEUSOX. Gentlemen "f tlie feel ovc'vwltclmcd with the compliment you have paid me. I know this body is too much engaged in the business before it for me to trespass long upon your lime. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. To be designated as one of the standard-bearers of the Democracy is enough honor for one man. Fellow- citizen's, I have not always been a Democrat. In other days, when other issues divided the parties of tbe country; when the issues were not what" they are now, I bore of another party. But I joined the' Democratic party when il no honors to besrow upon its members; when you were oppressed, when it was considered trea- sor, to I KuiTered with it suiTcred at a time when I had only to bow the knee to Baal and office would have followed. But I stand by my country and my State. I am not one of those.'who trim their sails to the popu- lar breeze. I prefer always to stand by tbe truth and the right. I trust to the popular heart and gcntral intelligence of the people. Thai lias been the course I have pursued, nnd this is my hour of vindication and the proudest moment of my life.' When the canvass comes, I .pledge'you rd- do everything in my power to make it siitcesst'iil. It is tine we have overwhelming power in Texas, but we are now seeking to control the general government; to elevate to power tjjose who will regard thu con- stitution nnd the interests oJ the coun- try as paramount to. party. The inter- ests of the people should lie paramount t.o any other ._ consideration. But for the party to control the country, it must accommodate itself to the spirit oft tbe times; it must catch the spirit of the times; if it can not do that, it might as well attempt to interrupt the sun in its course, or that the ocean should cease to roll at yonr bidding. And the younj; men must do this. To ,'tbe 3-011 ng men I look. It is they who must come into power nnd rule the country.

(u'litlfiiisti nf the this renewed mark of yoitr contldojicc, iiiinnresteU tn-ulglit by the represcma-- tives of tbe great Democratic party of Texas, I return you the honest thanks of an honest heart. Fellow-citixens, I have followed the Hag which you have thrown to the again, long without fee or reward. I have never sought from tbe bands of tbo people of Texas any salaried otliee. What ser- vice I have rendered you in the days of darkness, was because I loved Texas, (bat holds tbe ashes of my loved ones, because her banner was the syno- nym of all that is glorious. [Applause.] i propose to do it again. I have served in your councils to tbe best of my ability. That un- friendly criticism lias followed, is but natural, I invite the widest criti- cism ot my nets. I acknowledge no man my superior in devotion to the principles of our party. I propose, wherever in Texas, if it be necessary, and I can get an audience, there to up- hold those principles. But if misfor- tune should come I "will stick but the closer to that party. I believe tbe time is coming when tbe principles of. the great Democratic party will Ire trium- more a redeemed and hap- py country. I believe the time is. com- ing when, shield and shoulder to shoulder, thc'Demoeratic party will redeem the country, lr, this centennial year, the birthday of the country. I promise you in this contest that -w.lmt- cver 7.eal I can bring to bear shall be given willingly with my whole heart. I thank you, my fellow-citizens. liereiifter ive will know' no KTbrtli, "no South, I.tliank you.

Major Boone was then nominated by acclaimithm, and, being' called to the stand, said: I thank you, I thank you for the honor conferred upon me, for the honor conferred upon the crippled brother- liood.

He was n Confederate soldier who was my friend, and I can not and will not per- mit tbe occasion to pass when by rais- ins my voice I can help my tricnd. When I recall what some of you have called my magnanimous act to-night, I trust you will not forget the occasion of that act, and .that you will remem- ber also to honor a mere soldier, and in giving him your votes I will acquit yon of any obligation to mo in nil the fu- ture.
