Ohio, May 30?11 p. m.?fudg ing from the number of delegates already ar rived, the?>n to-morrow will be com j nosed of several hundred delegaw. Many Missonrians are in attendance. The delega tions from Illinois. Iowa, Arkansas, Unto, and Pennsylvania are also large. Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas. New York, New Jvter, and Massachusetts are represent ed, but bot largely. Apparently none but the delegation of war Democrats from New lork ft-vor the nomination of Grant, with Fremont for Vice President. Tbev argue that a victory in Virginia next month will secure an endorse ment of this ticket at Chicago. On the other hand, the Fremont men say they want a man whose political record Is well defined, and known to the country, and who has position and strength, and claim thi? for their candi date, professing to believe that he is as likely to be endorsed at Chicago as Grant. Grant's name will be withdrawn and r re mont nominated without opptwitibn. Several are named for Vice President, among them General Cochrane, George W. Cass. B. Gratz Brown, General Lio^an, Governor Andrew, ard General RD?ecrans. Comptroller Robinson, ot N??w \ork, lifts ?written a letter strongly favoring the nomina tion of Grant. Parker Pilsbnry brings a letter from Wendel Philips, expressing regret at his inability to attend the Convention, comp'lin ing that the Administration is a failnre because it has weighed a treasure of blood and civil lib erty against slavery, and, up to the present mo ment, has decided to exhaust them all before it uses freedom heartily as the means of battle, and that if Mr. Lincoln is reelected, he will pursue the same policy and obey the same cabinet. He deprecates the Louisiana recon struction experiment, and contends that the only plan of reconstruction within twenty years, is to admit the black* to citizenship, aud use them with white3 as the basis of States. He closes by favoring the nomination ol Fre mont or Butler, Fremout being his first choice. Among those present are General McKinstrv, ex-Goverror Win.

Port Royal had not been evacuated at 11 o'clock yesterday, although all the Government property and stores had been placed upon transports, which were ordered to clear the river by 9 o'clock this morning. Nothing was left at Port Royal which would retard the evacuation of the place when the authorities deemed it necessary. No boats had arrived there since Sunday noon.

Church ' to bold property in the District of Columbia, i and accept a devise under the will of the late j Win. Doughty. Mr. l?oolittle bailed up hid joint resolution j tendering the thanks oi Congress and for awarding a medal U- Lieut. Col. Bailey H? slated that this olllcer was an engineer on the I?*i Crosse Railroad before the war, and c;nw> out with the 1th Wisconsin regiment, and wiia now an acting engineer of the 1'Jth army corps, and had built the great dam across the Red river, which saved Com. Porter's fleet from destruction or being left in the hands of the rebels. Soon after coming east he had built Fort I tlx, in Maryland, and subsequently took charge of one of the most important fortifica tions at Washington. lie bad also, on being transferred with his. regiment to New Orleans, built there one of the largest fortifications erected during (be war: bat tne crowning act was that by which he had rescued Com. Porter's valuable lieet. The great dams across Red river had been l>uilt in from (Ight to ten days, after other* had de clared such a thing impracticable. With the ite^t lying in the shallow waters above, with the army short of provisions and loraee, it was decided if thio thing could not be done In ten days the army would have to leave. Then h was that this thing was undertaken and ?<? complisbed by Lieut. Col. Barley, some 3,<kjo men being placed at his disposal and hundreds of teams. (?n Mr. Doolittle's motion, the resolution was referred to the Military Committee. Mr. Morrill called up the joint resolu'iou to provide lor the re-vision of the law* ot the Dia irict of Columbia, and it was passed. Mr. Carlisle, from the Committ'e on Public Lands, reported back the bill to grant lands to Wisconsin 10 aid in the construction of a ship ? aual from Green Buy to LaUe Michigan, with amendments. Mr. Davis submitted a resolution concerning (Sen. Butler. which was laid over.

Unless it shall be passed, many citizens would be deprived of tbe right to vote. Mr. Steele, of New York, spoke of the at tempt to usurp the business ol the Committee for the District of Columbia, instead of leaving that committee to first consider tbe subject berore it should be acted upon by the House. The people will not suffer by waiting till next Friday. ? Mr. Cox said the committee should be treat | ed With respect. Why this haste f Was it to j manufacture voters from members of the Loy al league and newly appointed Clerks, in or der to coutrol a doubtful election > Mr. Beuman. of Michigan, saw no disrespect to the committee. He could conceive of uo ne cessity for referring the bill to that committee. It should be pas.-ed now. Mr. frawes explained bis reasons for moving the reconsideration. It certainly was not out of disrespect to the committee. Mr. Steele, of N. Y., moved to lay the motion to reconsider on the able. This was disagreed to?yeas 50, nays 73. The liouee then reconsidered the vote, and finally the bill came up on its passage. Mr. James C. Allen moved that the bill be laid upon tbe table. This was disagreed to?yeas 4T, nays 42. The bill was then passed. The House proceeded to the consideration of tbe hill authorizing the President to construct a military railroad from the valley of the Ohio to East Tennessee, in such a manner as will best serve the iuteres's of the Government and insure a speedy completion of the same. The bill was passed. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. DISASTER AT SEA.

Wall, auctioneer, began the sale of the un claimed goods remaining In the store-room of the Property Clerk of the Metropolitan Police, at the headquarters on 10th, near D street. These articles have been accumulating since the police was organized, and required con siderable room for storage. From the number of articles it will require a day or two to clese the sale. An idea of the variety may be obtained from ttie following summary: Articles of gold and silver ware, about 20 lots. Watches of silver, composition and brass, 25. Gnn6. pistols, ic., a curious col lection comprising nearly every pattern man ufactured in the 19th century, over 1<J-? lots. Swords, stilettoes, bowie knives, a collection almost as curious as that of guns, pistols, &?., romprisin* a nnmber of finely finished weap. ons; beside many e'd and worn out and 6ome ' thtt were borne made for immediate use, 103 lo?. 1 he remainder may be called a miscellaneous . collection, and justifies the application of the Curiosity Shop as the title of the Property Clerk's store-room. In it may be found station ery, dry goods, clothlnr, billiard balls, soaps, military equipments, groceries, wines, glass, and earthenware, and a variety of odds and ends to which names have been given in order to designate hem in the catalogue. The great quantity of unclaimed goods offered for sale proves clearly that our police have done their fiuty faithfully, when it is recollected that the poods identified and already returned to th# owners by the police was immense. The lots sold aretho-e for which no owner could be found, and which by act of Congress are sold after being retained a certain length of time. ' _ i Gkanx* Laeckhv.?Susan Williams and W.
