He could not do otherwise and be a Kepublican. Af'ter the selection of delegates, committees, etc, was oonipleted the oommittee on resolutions reported the following, whkh was uuaniiaouMly adoptedaseipresRepublican sing the sense of the convention : Resolved, That it ia the seose of tbis convention that we are decidedly opposed to the noniination of any man to the offioe of' President of tbe United States for a third term, aud would oonsider such a nomination a bad precedent, and a wide departure from the eablished usages and customs of our people. At the close of the convention, the president, Prof. M. C. Tyler, was called upon for a speech, and responded in some happy pointed and eloquent remarles. It is to be regretted that no hand reporter was present tbat his words might have been chronicled and handed down to the future. The proceedings were harmonious throughout, no discord, no dissensions, only one spirit seeming to actúate the delegates, and that was enthusiasm for the party, which bodes well for victory in the coming campaign.
