Chicago, III., June' 11. In the Green

for a nominee .for President of the United
States. An informal ballot was first taken,
the result f whiqh. was announced as 4:10
this morning, just as daylight was breaking
It stood: Weaver, 224J; Wright, 126J; Al-
lis, 41 ; Campbell, 21. Before the announce
ment of the. first ballot it became evident
that Weaver liad a clear majority and all
the delegates hastened to change their votes
to hat candidate. 3Iotions sprang from
every portion of the convention to make the
nomination unanimous, and just as the sun
shone throogfliCte eastern Wittkms there-3
suit was announced as 71S for Gen. B. Wea

tion his nomination w as made unanimous.

nation tenaered Innl by a sleepless con vfen
tion. After passing the usual votesof thankf
the convention adjourned sine die.
The-.Northern RepibHqaa papers are
now animadverting on the purchaseable
character of ' the Southern delegates to
Chicago. Certainly all the delegates are
not included in such a sweeping statement
But the Sherman men are claiming that
the Grant delegates have been bought
and . the Grant men are- repeating the
charge as to the Sherman supporters
At any rate, .-both sjdes agreethat the

Lord, 1775, We thought this matter had
been settled long ago ia the minds f all
intelligent and impartial persons who
hare taken the pains to carefully examine
the facta bearing on it. But it seems that
the people of Mecklenburg still insists on
the 20th as the day, and the Declaratiou
as a reality, while they find it - necessary

annaal contributions to allay -skepticism:

There is qna-tLiug; eertain Korth Car
olina was ahead of. alb her sitters ou .the
subject of Independence, but none of all
the able writers who have discussed .the
matter hare, settled, without doubt, the
fact kat the so-called Mecklenburg Dec-
aratioiv was adopted and, signed by eer
tain cititins of that cooatyoo, the 20th of
May 1875V t ThaUbere was-a meeting of
citizens oa that day. and in that county is
probable; that the subject of Independ
ence was discussed is also probable j that
the aforesaid Xteclaratiott was there pre
sented and read, by some brave spirit is
not improbable ; but that it was adopted
and signed by tire persons who are alleged
to have done so, has never yet been set
tled as a fact, and it would brand some of
them as perjured knaves and scoundrels,
if it were established. This we do not
believe j for they were men of sterliug
character, of education, of moral tone,
and prtriotism. They were incapable of
duplicity and knavery. Several of the
alleged signers took the oath of allegance
to George III, and-held office nnder the
crowu after this paper is said'to have been
signed. Is it to be believed that a single
man who is said to have signed that Dec
laration would have cowardly recanted
and done this base thing ? We would not
'eel like celebrating a Declaration adopt
ed and signed by men of such character.
No; -if the so-called Declaration was
introduced and read at the meet jug on
the 20th of May, that, was. all of it. ,lt
was not .idepted or sigued. , Butprrthe
31 st of Mayollowjpg, which was thead
journed meeting of the ,20th, jho ; jrpvp
and patriotic resolutions then adopted iu-;
corporated the spirit of the Declaration
and reflected the matured judgment and
patriotic sentiment oHlig noWc people of
Mecklenburg. Thi conclusion, is, to our
mind, irrrsistable. ( It was. these resolu
tions that the royal Governor, Josiah Mar
tin, denounced in bis proclamation issued
from his Majesty's ship-of-war, The Crni-
sei, as "the most treasonable proceedings
that had taken place on the Continent."
These resolutions about which there is no
doubt, aie worth as much as the Declara
tion, and are equally worthy of the peo
ple of Mecklenburg. Every true North
Carolinian should feel proud of them.
Why not celebrate the 31st, and the noble
sentiments then tittered by the brave
hearts of Mecklenburg aud stop trying to
bolster np and establish a myth, at the
expense of the honor and courage of the
brave spirits who first put the ball in mo
tion which rolled on till onr fathers, had

A Very Smart Girl?
Toledo baa a smart girl. - Her. father sad '
mother were living pleasantly together, and- j '
she suspected nothing wrong in their irebw" .i
tions till one day on receiving f I bundle !
wrapped ia an obsure Indiana paper, she dis
covered an advertisement of an application
for divorce signed wit a. her father's name.
She promptly started on a visit to a friend
in Indianapolis, from which' point she made 1 .r
an excursion into the county in which the . '
notice was published.. Here she found that
her father had been. divorced.! Coming .
straight home, she informed bim f her di . r.
covery, when the 4told man" confessed, aaid
he was ashamed of himself, and anxious t64
make it all right with her mother. MYon
must not go to mamma yet," said, the girl;.
"I do not want her to know the painfal .a
truth." Fortunately the twenty fiflh afiaU
versary of their marriage "Was close at band, If
and the girl arranged silver wedding, to .
which the minister who first married the
couplevas invited, and he pronounced the :
ceremony that made them again man and "
wife. The mother's rival was present by
the very urgent request of the daughter, and
-when it was all oyer the latter took the fair '.
offender into a corner and whispered to her,
papa and mamma are married again as fast
as the law can make it. Whether the truth '
is ever known depends on you. Papa will t
never tell it, and l am sure I never shall.
But it does seemtoime, dear, that some oth- ' -
er climate would suit your constitution-bet' .
ter than this." If the man who marries that -
girl ever gets a divorce, he won't want to
come slobbering around much afterward!'.

I may bere say that poets, have pictar-, .
ed Seville belles as "dark -eyed angels.n. . .
Like the proverb I quote above, there is
more poetry' than truth in this gushing ex

may be many of them ready to pose for""
that enviable position ; and I bkve seea

rather than black eyes. A sort; of deep '
violet blue, with black fringes of lashes, jr
are terribly fascinating eyes In; ' Seville'
