The Executive Committee having in

which is called to meet in tnis city, after
due consideration, have determined to

Notice of the postponement is hereby

time for holding the Convention is
changed from September Ist to October ,

the successful inauguration of this

people in.the United States. It-is be

have resulted so advantageously to other
races, the German and the Scandinavian,
will be applied to the Irish, produce
equally good fruit and tend more to the
elevation of the Irish in the United States
thah anythiiig heretofore attempted. The
emancipation of the Irish from the vices

President Grant and the National Re.
publicans of billasitalppl.
Torbell, Secretary of the Republican Ex
ecutive Committee of Mississippi, had a
lengthy interview with President Grant
at the residence of Seeretary Fish, in
New York, on the 6th instant, relative
to the President's views in reference
to affairs in • the Southern States.
especially Mississippi. In reply to
General Torbell's explanations in re
gard to affairs there and the attempt
to divide the Republican party, the
President remarked at the beginning on
the very small number of Republicans
who were engaged in what is termed the
"National Republican Party." With re
gard to the special business presented
to him by General Torbell, his assu
rances were explicit and direct. The
President said in his judgment the
small number of those who had hither
to acted with the Republican party who
now constituted the so-called National
Republican party' was in itself evidence
that they could be not otherwise than used
by the opposition. With regard to the
recent profession made by those who
were lately rebels. The President was
frank. His only • desire was peace and
amity, and be would do anything right
to bring that about. But thead people
cast suspicions upon their own motives,
by the fact that all their efforts seemed
to be aimed at dividing, not aiding,
the Republican party in their
midst. If they were really in
earnest they would not be anxious
about those with whom they acted. To
sincere men it could not be difficult who
in the south were and had been - admin
istration friends. He 'talked at some
length on the contest in Virginia. He
thought from Gov. Walker's speeches
- since the election that he was fully com
mitted to the administration and was
honestly intending to act .up to
them. Referring to the proposal by Col.
Jenkins to unite the two wings
of the Republican party there,
the President expressed a regret
at the apparent failure to sworn-
OM so desirable an 'object, remarking
that the letter of Dr. Gilmore in reply
showed that the followers of Walker were
not all in good faith. He still hoped,
however. good would come out of Vir
ginia, but did not at present exactly see
...The conversation lasted about an :hour
and a half, and during the whole time

his proclamation, they might take the
responsibility.. His course, however, was
clear to him and he should pursue It.

parties, consisting of David Dudley
Field, John Ganson and Amos Parker,
representing the Erie interest, and Wm..
F. Allen and Rufus W. Peckham, Jr.,
held a consultation in the Executive

publie interest • and the obligations of
the company demand that the z'qad

the undersigned, as contesting claimants
to the possession of the road, hereby
request you to appoint some - suitable
