The Convention repudiates intervention, promises to support the Government is maintaining the ascendancy of the American continent, and endorses the emancipation proclamation. President Lincoln bas.addor-essed a letter to the con- vention in which he says he does not beSaeve that a compromise embracing the mtintenance of the Union is now possible. The strength of the rebellion is in its army, and the offer of terms to men within the range of that army is nothing, such men having no .power to enforoa a com- promise. Au effective compromise must be made either with those controlling the rebel army or with -the people under its dominion. No intimation from the rebel army or from the men controlling it, in relation to a peace compromise, has ever come to President Lincoln's know- ledge or belief. -1 If it does come it shall not be rejected or kept secret.' The President mentions that he suggested compensated emancipation, but the people objected to taxation ito buy negroes. He then continues The emancipation proclamation is constitutional. If valid as a law it cannot be retracted; if invalid it needs no retractation. The war progresses as favourably since the issue of the proclamation as before. Peace does not appear as distant as it did, still let us not be sanguine of, a speedy final triumph, bat be quite sober, diligently.' applying our means" neyer doubting that Godwm give;, the rightful result.' No direot confirmation of President Davis's enlisting negroes has been received but it ill alleged that the governors of aU the Confederate States assembled in Richmond, and after a consultation with the Cabinet decided that the salvation of the country required the arming of slaves, and that a call of 400,000 negroes (one for every eight inhabitants) should take place forthwith.

George Wiltshire, 31, Margaret-street, said that on Monday last deceased went to an old curiosity shop and bought an old fashioned duelling p'stol for 3s. He said he wanted it to shoot sparrows. He placed a cap on it and said, 'This will shoot well.' The same evening witness noticed a large crowd outside the door of the deceased's house, No. 20, Margaret-street. Upon going up-stairs he found the deceased lying on the floor in a pool of blood, and was quite dead. He had lain down upon the floor with his head to the door of the cupboard, and then placed the pistol, which must have been loaded to the ^muzzle, close to his heart, for the clothes were completely burnt by the powder, and were still on fire when witness went into the room, and then pulling the trigger, inflicted a fearful wound right through the heart. The pistol was so loaded that it recoiled with such force as to smash through the cup- board. Witness found it in the cupboard with the handle broken, and rendered unfit for use. The deceased had taken off his eoat before lying down, and everything seemed to have been done with great deliberation. A policeman said that he was called in, and found deceased as described by the last witness. There was £1 3i in his poeket, but no letter. Deceased was formerly a brick- layer, but he met with an accident in the High Level Sewer. His skull became diseased and decayed, and he bad to wear two plates in his head to protect the brain. He was therefore subject to fits of delirium, especially if he took even a glass of ale, which he had done on Mon- Jay afternoon.-The jury returned » m4wt Qf Sofejde ffhlle of amoand mind.'
