Thoma M. Patterson, of Missouri, rose and, craving Uio indulgence of the convention In Ubalf of the slate of Col orado, presented to the convention a gavel manufactured of Colorado silver, richly chased and burnished. It was, be said, a modest offering from a younger member of the Federal Union to that parry which had restored silver to that high plane from which it had been de graded by the congressional conspiracy uj 1873, and which had ever since re mained its constant champion. Let the announcement be made throughout the civilized world, through the silvery tone of the gavel, of the second and unani mous nomination of "the people' choice for president, Grovcr Cleveland, Loud Applause.) s chairman White, in accepting the gavel, plea-autly remarked thut as fa- at the gavel would do it, the convention would have to b ruled by silver. Ap plause. The chair then recognized t-'cuator Gorm m. of Maryland, who pre sented a resolution providing that the roll of state be tailed, and that each state name a member cf the committee on cre dential, a member of the committee on permanent organization, and a nu mber of the committee on resolu'ions, and that all resolutions relating to the platform be referred to the committee on resolutions without depute.

The resolution decUred that the perpetuity of the republic demands tho mfurcement of the Monroe doctrine in ill it length and breadth, and that ter ritorial aggrandisement by foreign pow in in America should be discouraged nd discountenanced by every menns in .he power of the United State Govern ment, so that it I highly wise that this republic should maintain friendly rela tion with our sister republics, Mexico, Central and South America, and wi;h ther home-ruled power of America, ind that we should extend to them our friendly aid to maintain themselves and protect themselves against I he encroacb tteot of foreign power and that if leoeasary to maintain our supremacy on this continent, the republic of the United State should be prepared to declare and maintain our authority by every mesne in the power of the great nation. The resolutions also contsined resolution providing that it be presented to the con vention in order to call the attention or this great body of Democrat to this great question. It wa referred to the sommiitee on resolutions without debate. Mr. MaUory, of Florida, offered the following resolution which was referred to the committee on resolution: -Keolved, lbst this committee here by approves and indorse the principle of arm rciorm enunciated by rresiJent Cleveland in hi first message to the present Congnss, and to the policy rec ommended by him for the practical ap plication of those principles to the Gov ernment, we give our unqualified and univer-al aupjiort." The mention ot Cleveland's name was the signal for a round of applause which again broko out, a the reading of the resolution wss completed. The chairman then called for report from the committee of organization. Mr. Casaidy, of Pennsylvania, its chairman, reported that it had nnanimouslv agreed up n Gen. Patrick A. Ollins, of Mass emmet's, fur permanent chairman. II. IL Jngers ill, of Tenncnaoe, was recom mended a secretary, and one delegate from each state rs vice-president and one as assistant secretary. They were elected. Chairman White said: "Thanking you for the favor you have extended tome, and your indulgeure accorded me so far in the proceedings of this great convention, I take pleasure in Introducing to your permanent presiding officer, lion. Pstrick A. Collins, ot Mas sachusetts." Mr. White then passed over to Mr. Collin the silver gavel and retired. There was another burst of spplause, and when U had subsided Mr. Collins ad dressed th convention. Mr. Collina spoke in voice, which although not great in volume, wa sufficiently clear and distinct to enable him to b heard in ev ery portion 9f the hall. The chairman announced that the sec retary would read petition for tho con sideration of the convent ion. The paper proved to be a request from the Woman' convention recently held in Washington, slating that two of its member had been appointed to make short talk to th convention on behalf of tho women of America. This request wss accompanied by promise that if it wen granted by th convention th re present ati vet of th woman's org miration would occupy the attention of the convention for ten min utes. The communication wa signed trv Virciui L Miner and E. A. M-nv weather, Mr. J. 3. O'Donobne, of New York, moved that tho women bo heard, nd it was agreed to. Congressman T. J. Campbell, of Now York arose snd pres etted a resolution. which he asked be read. Tho chair ruled that tinder th rule adopt ed by th 3 convention, resolution should go to th oominitte on resolutions. without dibaU. Mr, Collin asked unanimous consent, hut objection wns mad by Sew York dele gate, and further ohjisctcd to by other. Mr. Colliut Inthwd that the subject mat ter of th resolutions did not relate to th Platform, tod therefor did tot com uo 3er tEe restrictions of the rule adopted. Objection was made by Mr. Wells, of Wibconsi i, who subsequently withdrew it, snd the resolution w read. Th i res olution was as follow and was adopted by arjsing vote: Resolved, That this convention takes occasion to express it unfeigned sorrow at the serious and dan gerous illness of Gen. Phil Sheridan, Ap plause, and to him whose coble and val iant deeds will ever be enshrined in the heart of his countrymen, we extend our sincere sympathy,,, We earnestly trust thit the great soldier and distinguished patriot will meet with speedy recovery, and that Divine Providence may spore him to this nation for many years to come. Resolved, That a copy ot these resolutionsbe forwarded to Gen, Sheridan as expressive of the heartfelt sntiment of the democracy of the United States. Cheers. Mr. Campbell asked for unan imous consent for the adoption of the resolutions. The resolutions were adopt ed by a rh-ing vote with three hcaity cheers for the gallant soldier who is now engaged in his most duspera e campaign. Mm. Merriweathcr theu mounted tlio platform, and was received with applause. She said that she was delegated to sale that this treat fonventicn help to make the practice of this nation conform to its Srinciples of universal suffrage. Mrs. urriweathrr's voice was not strong enough to fill the hall, and she was fre quently interrupted with crieji of "Louder!" and the band struck up an air before she had cont luded, but she rem allied pluckily at her po-t until her time ex pired. When Alabama was called, on the call of states, the chairmin said his state desired to give way to New York. The convention applauded t this an nouncement, and when the New York delegation presented the name of Daniel Dougherty to make the nomination the great hall rang with cheers, which were prolonged and grew in volume for nearly a minute, until Mr. Dougherty mounted the platform, when it was redoubled, and as soon as he could be heard, Sir. Dough erty said, addressing the convention at lengtn: "1 greet you my countryman, with fraternal regards. In your pres ence I bow to the majesty of the people. The sight itself is inspiring, though sub lime. You come from every state and territory, from every nook and comer of our ocean-bound continent, covering the country. You are about to discharge, more than an imperial duty, with the simplest ceremoniul." In conclusion be said, "I nominate Grover Cleveland, of New York." 3Ir. Dougherty's speech wa delivered with effect, in hi best style, and aroused unbounded enthusiasm When he mentioned tho name of Grover Cleveland, or referred to hi public act and utterances, the conven tion fairly shouted itself hoarse. Dele gates mounted chairs, waved their hats, their canes, and handkerchiefs. Ten thousand spectators joined in the applause, ana a band in the cast gallery bellied alorg with horns and drums, but their blare and noise could scarcely be heard above the general dm. It aroused the enthusiasm of the convention to fe ver heat for the first time during Us pro ceedings. The hall was filled with cheer on cheer, and the great body of people in the auditoiium, balcony and gallery arose aod stood shouting at the top of its voice till the din became almost deafen ing. Hats were thrown in the air, red bandanas waved from t thousand hands, and white, black and gray hats were fraotically thrust upon points of cane and waved until the owners became ex hausted. Some one on the stage crowned the bust of the Pre-idcnt on the left of the chairman witn laurel wreath, which wa the signal for even a wider burst of bout and cheer than before. Although the full band ot xty piece was in full blast all this time, rot a sound from it trumpet could be heard. The climax of this great scene was reached when the banntrs of all the dates were borne by delegate to the New York standard and draped aliout it. At this the enthusiasm was unbounded. Specta tor and delegates tore tho red, white and blue bunting from the pilar and from the face of the balconies and waved these improvised bandanas all over the rail with grent vigor for ten minutes. Thi remarkable outburst did not cease until everybody was absolutely exhaust ed. It was twenty-four minutes before the chair was able to regain tu? control of tho convention. The chair put the question and there waa returned from the convention a thun dering cheer of yeas. The chair, there fore, announced that Grovcr Cleveland, having received a unanimous vote, was tho candidate of the Democratic party for the office of President of the United State. Before the call of tho roll of state on Mr. Yoorhccst motion was com pleted, it wss evident that it would have large majority, and at the suggestion of th chair, the convention, by unanimous consent, agreed to suspend the call and agreed to th motion; and tho chair, at 1:30 announced that the convention stood adjourned until Thursday morn ing.

PRACTICAL AND SEASONABLE W0EE3 TO FARMERS. SOMETOTXO ABOUT GRASSES, BEES, BOIL, HORBEB, CROPS, JOHNSON ORABS, rim, AND MAKING DOMESTIC WlXEB. It is an excellent idea to put broken land in Bermuda and burr clover. Prof. Cook, of Michigan, says that no one variety of bees possess uli the good qualities, but that we must cross tne uesi g'jrts. and thus eliminate tho undesirable characteristics and promote tho good. ones. ' A South Georgia man complaining of mites lufesting everything on his place, a friend suFguts tha Chalking of table lefia, the floor, etc., 0 certain species of ants will not cross a chalk line properly mado. The best toil for the watermelon is a liijht, warm, sandy, loam, and if newly cleared, or having not been planted for three vears previous in melons, so much the better. Whatever tends to compact tho soil, whether rainy weather or a de ficiency of vcgetablo matter, is detri mental to the crop. Says a Tenuessee horse-breeder: "Th large mares are the thing; the large torso for a cross will prove worthless; but th large mares, crossed for three generation on tho pure thorough-bred will get bet ter all the way. The proper cultivation of the crop al ready planted, and the planting of addi tional side crops, will demand all the en ergies of the farmer during tho month ot June. The grass that givi s most trouble is tint whicli comes up during the latter part of April and throughout tho month of May. Plantings of the usual for.ico crop may be continued throughout the month. It is a good time to commence preparing spare grounds for theplantinrof turnips, barley, rye, Jucern, etc., in July, August and September. Previous good prepa ration of the ground is about as iudis pecsable as manure in making a crop of turnips. In killing out Johnson grass there i tv right time and a wrong time to attempt it. In any other Summer months than. July and August, plowing cultivate it. In July, the tap decendstothe roots and they become full of moisture. Then take a two-horse plow, keeping the point sharp, and break up the ground to the depth of ix inches (eight if possible), leaving as far as you can the turf stand upon its edge. The sun and rain take1 the catth from the roots so exposed and; th y sooa die. ' If a pig has tho thumps, separata him from tUe rest If he be large enoughi to drink slop or milk, dissolve one-fourthi of a teuspoonfol of ratbonate of ammo-' nia in a pint of milk and let him drink it. Also, give him ten drops to thirty droi s of the tincture of digital' every two hours, and allow no other food for three or ftur days. It is a mistake to consider the de struction of grass and weeds ss the only abject in view in plowing and hoeing a crop of corn or cotton. If there wero no grass or weeds, it would still be ne cessary to stir the surface s'.il, in order that the rootlets may easily penetrate it in search of plant food, and so that tho air rray enter laden with its store cf car bonic acid, nitrogen and nio t:ir. To make good wine, to tac'i gallon of. ripe berries add one qttan of boiling water; mash tho bcrr cs and let them stand tweiity-f .ur hours; then express the juice, strain and add two and a half pounds of white sugar to each gillon.
