MfttiBg to Elect District of Columbia Dflrgatti?A Stormy Time. Pursuant to published call inviting all the qualified -voters ot the District of Columbia ??who desire the unconditional maintenance of the Union, the supremacy of the Constitution, and the complete suppression of the rebellion, with the cause thereof, by vigorous war and all apt efficient means," to rae?t in mass convention to elect delegates to represent the District of Columbia in the Baltimore Conven tion, a large gathering assembled at the Union League rooms, on 9th street, and at eight o'clock were called to order by J.J. Coombs, President of the Republican Association. Mr. Coombs made a few appropriate remarks, wherein he claimed that this was a meeting of more vital importance than auy in which the Republican party hud ever been heretofore engaged, for upon the result of the Baltimore Convention depended the salvation of the conn try. The opposition would not restore the Union if they were in power, as it was no part of their programme. The boldest men of that party have thrown off all disguise, and advo cate an immediate recognition of the Southern Confederacy. The more timid feel none the less, but lack the audacity to proclaim their opinions. We need not flatter onrselves with the idea that the Union will still go 02, no matter what party might be in power. The struggle was one whether the Union should continue to exist or whether it should be blotted from the map of the world. The speaker further argued that the Union, if re-established, would be re-established on the principles of right at d justice to all meni and while some ditfered as to the method of suppressing the rebellion, no Union man doubted but that slavery must go down. [Ap plause. J That end would be reached by the inevitable logic of events. It Is no more pos sible to save slavery and have a perfect Union, than it would be to have such a Union under a constitution acknowledging the right of seces sion. He who lights the rebels, fights to put down the cause of the rebellion, slavery. [Applause.] Of our ultimate success there can be no doobt, if we keep the power of the coun try in faithful hands?especially in the same hands that have controlled it the past four years. [Immense applause.] The speaker did not doubt but that there were men equally competent as our present Chief Magistrate to pilot us through, yet he did not t-elieve the same success would attend the efforts of others. [Applause.] Justice and patriotism demands the renomination of Abra ham Lincoln. [Great applause.] Under his wise administration, success was a certainty, [applause,] but if we permit the political power to go into the hands of the enemies of the countrv, then a long farewell to ail our great ness. If we are true to ourselves, we shall not fail either at the ballot box or in the field. The mass of the people are right, and will not be seduced by the wiles ot the copperheads. Mr. Coombs closed by claimiug that our lines were extending, and that our eventual trulmph was a lorgoue conclusion. As soon as the speech was ended Mr. A. C. Ru-hards off ered the following resolutions : Btiolred, That this ma^s convention ot the loyal voters of this District hereby expresses its full and unabated confidence in thf ability and integrity ot Abraham Lincoln, and that we endorse his official a^ts, including his appro val ot th?* bill abolishing slavery in this Dis tiict, at d his emancipation proclamation, as dictated by justice, sound policy, and sagacious statesmanship. Retolvtd, That our delegates who shall be elected to attend the Baltimore convention which is to assemble in that city on the 7th of Jnne next, to nominate candidates far the offi ces ol President and Vice President of the United States, be and they are hereby instruct ed to cast their votes, for the first-uamed office, in lavcr oi Abraham Lincoln, and ttiftt we hereby enjoin upon said delegates; to use iheir influence and best endeavors to secure his re ncmin&tion. The rtsolutions were received with much ap plause. Mi - J. R. El vans said he proposed to amend the resolutions, by striking out all of the second and inserting the" lollowing "Whereas, We consider it Important in this day of onr country's trial and dinger that all loyal citizens of the republic shall act in con cert and with harmony, aiding patriotically in crushing rebellion, treason, aHd slavery; And, whereas, we deem it the duty of all lovere of country to strive to allay, rather than to excite personal lee'ings or prejudices for or apainst any so-called rival aspirants for Pres idential honors; And, wnereas, among the members of this convention are many differences of opinion and expression as to candidates for the next Presi cency, as between General Butler, General Banks, lion. S. P. Chase, General Fremont, and President Lincoln; And, whereas, we recognize the rights of equally loyal men to use all honorable means to secure the nomination and election of the man of their choice, and to secure in con ven tion the greatest number of delegates sympa thizing with their own views; therefore, Retoleed by this Convention of the loyal men of the District of Columbia, That in the choice of delegates to the nominating convention, to be held at Baltimore, June 7, lb&l, it is proper to prescribe no pledge on the part of such dele gates to support any particnlar candidate for the Presidency, but that said delegates be left entirely untrammelled in their action by this convention. Resolvedfurther, That this convention pledges itself, and all its individual members pledge themselves, to support and sustain the nomi nee of the National Republican Union Con vention, to be held in Baltimore on the 7th of June next, who may receive a majority of all the vetes cast, surrendering individual prefer ences thereafter, and abiding faithfully and zealously in the hope of a crushing defeat of Copperheadism by unity of action. Mr. N. D. Lamer moved to lay the substitute of Mr. Elvans on the table, and asked for a rising vote upon the question, for he wanted to see the men who were opposed to this Ad ministration show themselves. [Applause.] The gentleman offering the substitute had been stabbing at Mr. Lincoln at all the meetings of the Republican Association. Cries of "order," "order," and Mr. El vans and others desired to know how the gen tleman knew that fact. Mr. Lamer said be had read the reports of the meetings. When the substitute was off ered there was some clapping in one little corner, but when the resolution in favor of Mr. Lin coln were introduced, then was silence in that corner, but applause everywhere else in the room. He moved to lay the substitute en the table. Cries of "question," "question," and much confusion, during which Mr. Elvans en deavored to be heard, and said he recognized the gentleman (Mr. Lamer) as an equally loyal man as himself, and he endorsed Mr. Richards, but he was opposed to the first resolution, because he desired to leave the delegates un trammelled as to their action. He did hope that Mr. Lamer wonld withdraw the motion to lay upon the table, and allow a free discus sion to ensue. The chair said it was not parliamentary to lay the amendment only on the table, for that would carry with it in the same action the en tire subject. The decision of the chair was dissented lrom in many parts of the hall, and confusion be came ?'worse confounded." Mr. W. H. Enstis at length obtained the floor, and announced himself as entirely in favor of the first resolution. Abraham Lincoln has con ducted the affhirs of the Government in a man ner satisfactory to all Union men, [applause;] and as he had had a hard time of it he ought to have the honor of being President while the war lasts. [Renewed applanse ] He (Mr. E.) wanted the delegates to go to Baltimore un trammeled, but hoped they would first vote for Mr. Lincoln. [Applause.] He (Mr. E.) had been badly usea by the Administration, but he did not blame Mi'. Lincoln, and he believed Mr. Lincoln always desired to do right. [Great applause] Mr. Fred. Myers said that be proposed to stand by the nominee of the Baltimore Con vention, whoever he might be. According to present appearances the nomination of Mr. Lincoln is a foregone conclusion; but he though', it good policy to act generously towards the thoussnds of men who were not enthusiastic in favor of Mr. Lincoln. Pennsylvania and other States required careful management, and it would not be judicious to by any act repel those who have preferences for other candidates. Mr. Lincoln was his second choice, If not his first, and he (Mr. M.) spoke only for the sake Connolly followed in some forcible remarks. He said if there was a place in the United States that ought to speak without a wavering voloe it was the District of Colum bia. We who have been immediate witnesses to the heroic patriotism of Abraham Lincoln ought to proclaim what we know of him to the country and the world. We who have ob served him through days and years many of us believe that the Lord God Omnipotent has placed him here to lead us out of oar present difficulties. [Great applause.] Let us vote fairly and squarely, and in solid front, in structing the delegates to vote first, last, and all the time, for Abraham Lincoln; but with one qualification, that they eabmit in good faith to the decision of the Convention. [Ap plause.] Mr. Eustis (excitedly).?Let Fremont or any other dare to split from the Baltimore Conven tion, and they will split themselves to the dev il ! [Laughter and applause.] Mr. D.R. Good loe.?There seems to be a good deal of misunderstanding and misapprehen sion. Why fly intoapas6ion and drive men cut cf the party f Let us conduct ourselves peaceably. There is no use in quarreling. Voic^-Ob, we are not quarreling. Mr. Clepbane.?I hope the main question will now be put. Mr. J. S. Brown.?The previous question was cot seconded when debate commenced, and therefore debate is in order. Judge G. ? 11. Day.?This audience is too intelligent to attempt to choke ofi' debate by the previous* question. Let us have a fair fight! Mr. Brown.?Ob, no! No fighting here! Mr. Day intimated that the fighting he had in view was of the Pickwickian-order. This is not Old Tammany Hall, or Mozart Hall, where people come up with fists and go out with bloody noses. Let nobody be choked eff because be doesn't happen to agree with the majority here, which appears to be pretty large. Considerable confusion followed, and the question was Anally divided so that the vote conld be taken first npon the first resolution of" the two offered by Mr. Richards, and the res olution was carried unanimously. Mr. Lewis Clephaue said he had a word to say in regard to what bad been said here to night. [Cries of " order" and ?? question;" and after much confusion order was again restored by the Chair, and Mr. Clephane continued his remarks.] He said no one here would suppose he v:as unlriendly to this Administration. [Ap plause] But he was surprised?no, he was not surprised, lor "the world moves"?that there were men here who would stigmatize members of the Republican Association as en emies of Mr. Lincoln. But that assertion had come from a party who had worked for and used his influence for a man who was now with theTebels. [Applause, and cries of " that's so."] He (Mr. C.) had always been opposed to instructing delegates to a convention, and es pecially as this District bad no vote on the question of the election of a President. He had the honor to be a delegate to the first Republic can convention. The District was allowed a vote upon the ground that the delegates from here would not give a casting: vote, bnt would fall in with the majority. He (Mr. C ) was a friend of Mr. Lincoln, [applause,] and had done as much as any roan to ee;ure his elec tion: but he would vote for the substitute in order to leave the delegates untrammelled, and he did cot believe any delegate could be elected who would not feel called upon to vote for Mr. Lincoln first. [Applause.] [Another confused time here ensued, and calls of "Mr. President" were heard lrom all parts of the hall; and after many raps and calls to order, the Chair finally recognized Mr. Jas. A Wise.l Mr. Wise, having first pulled off his over coat and remarked, "Let me get at them;" "I'll give them something," proceeded to say he had I had the honor of representing the District of Columbia in the Chicago Convention. [Laugh ter ] In that convention he also had the honor of being a member of the committee on creden nals, and he believed it waa necessary for him bf re to give a history of the proceedings of that committee. The question arose as to the ad mission of Kansas and other territories, and as Kacsa* would have been a State before that bnt tor her devotion to freedom, [applause,] her delegates were admitted. The District 01 Co lumbia tben got up and made these remarks r Mt. Wise, who held a dog's-eared^pampblet in bis band tbat looked as if it bad done pro tracted service, here commenced to read from that document what is believed to have been a speech alleged to have been delivered by him in the Chicago Convention. Ories of "Dry up !" "Cut it short ay you do your bay!" (Mr. W. deals in cut hay.) "Get cfcjwn!" "Put him out!' Mr. Wise, (on a bench and flourishing his speech as if it were a broadsword)?You can't pu< me down. The Chair?What has all this to do with the question before the bouse ? Mr. Wise, (with a vindictive stab in the air, chair ward, with his speech.)?It has a great deal to do with it! These men went for Bell and Everett. When Abraham Lincoln was nominated tne Republican Association had but *27 members, but after the fall elections the Bell and Everett men came down to the wig wam in such droves as to completely swamp the Original Jacobs. [Great laught?r.] Cries of " Question !" " Question !" "Get down Wi6e !' "Go it feed-man!" Wise, (probing the air in various directions with his manuscript.)?1 wjnt be put down. Mr. W. proceeded again to read from his Chi cago speech. Mr. J. R. Elvans.?I call the speaker to order or to speak to the queetion. His present re ma rks only afford amusement to copperheads. The Chair.?The remarks of the speaker (Wise) are altogether foreign to the question. Mr. Wise,(holdinghis manuscript at ease.) Now I'll speak to the amendment. I'm in favor of it. The delegates are going to this oonven tion the same as to Chicago Voice.?Oh, d?n Chicago. Why in thunder didn't you stay there! W ise.?At Chicago "Question!" "Question!" W ise.?At Chicago '?Question!'' "Get down!' "Turn him out!'' Wise.?Tbat man over there (jabbing his man uscript furiously in the direction of Mr. N. D. Lamer,) tbat man, who is now so much in favor of Lincoln, would, four years ago, have cut the throat of any man who advocated the abolition of Blavery here. [Cries of " that's so!"] I am r.o latter day saint. It don't cost anything now to be a Republican, especially if a man is in office. I Laughter and applause.] Mr. Wise continued by saying that he was oi.e of those who bad borne the beat of the battle four years ago, when the Republicans here were like the twelve apostles in ancient da} s, wandering about and liable at any mo ment to be hauled up before King Agrippa. [Laughter, cries of "order," "question," raps by 'he Chair, &c.| Mr. Wise, (to chair.)?If you are chairman why dont you keep order T The Chair reminded the gentleman that he bad been called to. order many times and re fused to obey the call. Another stormy time followed, Mr. Wise and manuscript impending, and the previous ques tion upon the amendment of Mr. Elvans was persistently called for. Mr. Lamer moved to adjourn till Tuesday next at the City Hall. (Much confusion. Cries of "no no." "None of tbat City Hall business for us." "The City Hall crowd can't blind us.") After a great deal of difficulty, the chair suc ceeded in taking the vote on the adjournment, and declared the motion lost. A motion was made that tellers be appointed to take the vote, which was carried. Father Beeson desired to know if it was only members of the Republican Association who were to be allowed to vote. The chair said no, but all qualified voters who were Union men. Messrs. J. P. Hilton and A. C. Richards were appointed. The vote was announced as 96 in favor of the smendment and 100 against it, and it was there fore declared to be lost. ? Mr. Richards resolutions were then adopted with but few dissenting voices, and the an nouncement was received with much applause. Mr. Deeble moved that the meeting pxticeed to the election of delegates Mr. Clephane said he had another short reso lution to offer. Retdved, That we regard slavery as the sole cause of the rebellion and that its extermina tion will ensure a lasting peace and a perpetual Union. The resolution was adopted almost unani mously. Mr. Deeble's motion to proceed to the election of delegate* then prevailed, and the following nominations were made, vix: John R. Elvans, L. Clephane, G. E. H. Day, A. C. Richards, D R. Goodloe, J. J. Coombs, S. J. Bo wen. W. P Wood, A. G. Hall, B. B. French, O. H. Plant J. F. Hodgson, Jas. A. Magruder. Mr. John Wheeler (Collector's office) nomi nated Wm. Dixon. [Hisses and cries " He's a copperhead!"] Mr. As bury Lloyd was nominated; also, Mr. Thomas C. Connolly. A Voice?I nominate Mr. James A. Wise. fLanghter.) Wise.?1 decline. 1 go for the one term prin ial* ciple. Juc udge Day more* tfcftt a plurality yotf should and the general supposition of the rft'inc was that this mode of procedure was dsctrt^d npcn by the petting. The Chair annoaured ttfat the vote would be ffiht-D fim tct two delegates, and next for two alternates. Mestrs T 8 Connelly, J- P- Hilton, J. S. Prcwu and Charles Sjenccr were appointed tellers, and they proceeded to take the rot?s, amid r^t.evred contusion. As tfce rote was progressing the cry was riiis?d -hat a p?f on desipnated had Toted three licit a. Cries of ?*Ont with him, whcisheT" "It's that man v. ah the striped vest." ' Empty the bat and begin again." 44 No! ho! a good many bare leit the root*44 Pot oat the man vrttn the speckled Test!" "Just try to put bim out, that's all!" Mr. Lewis Clephane got upon a bench, and said that ir the tellers decided that there had been illegal voting, of course there was no electicn. Mr. A. J. K. Baker (to Mr. Ciephane).?You would not have raised that obj.?ction two years ago! I was in your secret councils then, and knew all abont it. Messrs. Hilton and Connelly intimated their purpose to withdraw from their positions as tellers, but afterwards withdrew their decli nations and a guard was placed to keep the crowd back and ensure fairness of voting, the voters being allowed only to come up singly. The votes were counted and announced as follows: W. P. Wood, 9t>; A. O. Richards, 8*2; J. R. El vaiiF, 57; L. Clepbane. 39; J F. Hodson, JV; W. I>ixi n. 31; J.J. Combs. 17; D. R. (Joodloe, it; E.

The chair announced that votes had been polled and as no gentleman had received a m*. jority of nil the votes cast there was no elec tion. Much confusion ensued, and many pers?i?r present claimed that it had been denied that a plurality vote should designate the delegates. The Chair did not so understand it. Mr. Elwood?1 appeal from the chair to the newspaper reporters. The Chair?I will not be governed bv the de cision of all the reporters in the room! A motion was made to adjourn, and it was decided by the chair to have been carried. Another commotion, amid assertions that the chair had made an arbitrary and wrong decision. The chair insisted that his decision was correct and was abont to declare theme?<. in? adjourned when Mr. A. J. K. Baker de manded to know whether the chair presumed to dictate to the majority of the meeting which had not voted for an adjournment. Mr. Deeble, (to Mr. Baker.)?You are insult ing 'he Chair. Mr. Be.ker, (to Mr. Deeble )?You are a liar ! The chair believed he was right and there tore declared the meeting adjourned, and he ler his seat. Then ensued anotber scene of confusiou and excitement. A. J. K. Baker mounted a bench and urged that a meetingbe called at once, and that delegates be elected, (cheers.) Calls were made for Mr. Richards, and he made an ap peal to the persons present to abide by the de cision of the chair and adjourn peace&My He thanked those who vated for him, and did not think the ebair would do wrong intentionally. Mr. Baker and others insisted that it was proper that a meeting should be called as a consultation was desired with Messrs. Richards and Wood. The Janitor of the hall, however, proceeded to put out the lights, and the crowd then re luctantly departed; to meet again upon next Friday night. , AMUSEMENTS. GROVCR'S THEATER.
