Detroit, Mich., ,hijy 11.—Gen. John 1'ulford, for 40 years ;i rosidi-nr of this city, dic-J at his late home curly Saturday morning. IGen. Pulford was born on July 4. 1837;' in New York city, and came 'to Detroit with his parents 33 years later. We was I he possessor of an enviable war record. On June 19, ]SCI, he received his first commission as lirst lieutenant In the Fifth Michigan Inlanlry, Ills company joining the- Army of {he Potomac In the fall of Iliac year. He was actively engaged (u the operations of thfPotomac up to the battle of Malvern 1-1111, where he was severely njurcd by a cannon ball, his jaw, collar and temporal bones being fractured. lie. vas captured and con/ined In nichmond :r.til he was exchanged July 16, 1SS2. Soon ifter he was promoted to a captaincy, and in New Year's day following rose to tho •snk of major. In May, JSK. he was promoted to tho lieutenant colonelcy of his cglmcnt, and that year assisted In quelling he draft riots In New York city and In Troy, X. Y. At tin? battle of the Wilderness Gen.

Convention Hall, July 11.—The proceedings of the evening: were opened a few mln- utos before nine p. m,. when Senator White, of California, the chairman, called the convention to orderi'-.'-At that tlme'ex-Gov. Flower, and a fair proportion of the New York dolcsatos were occupying seats In their section, Senator Hill «nd Mr. William C. Whitney having left tho city In the afternoon. Most of. the New Jersey dele- pates were also present. The fact that both these state delegations had'decllned to participate In. the ballotlns for the presidential candidate ma«3e their'presence u matter of remark^. Uun. IJruicif Explains. The chairman announced that after the nomination for vice president should be mado (.whenever that mlfjht bo) "the committee on notiiication would at once meet In-the room of the committee on resolutions," to riKht of. the chair. He then stated that Gen. Brag's, of Wisconsin, desired to make some remarks, and he ac- conllnsrly* introduced the general to tlie convention. Gen. Bragg said: "I rise, Mr. Cnairman, on a question ot Elate privilege. When the delegation of Wisconsin was to-day engaged iii private consultation as to what should be done by It In the future, some gentleman (I suppose he was a gentleman; in fact, I know him to be such), stole the colors of our state and passed them as the representation of my delegation and of my state, into the trail of the vtctor for whom we had refused to cast our votes. I. make this statement, not in order to cast o. reflection upon anybody, but simply to place the-state which I represent as Its chairman right, so that the record will show that wo trallc not the Wisconsin "badger" behind th votes of tho majority of this convention. Mr. Dockery attempted to take tliestan to answer Gen, Brugg's remarks, and a the two Wisconsin antagonists confrontei each, other, Gen, Bragg shook his flnger 1 Mr. Dockery's faceanti said: "If you mak any personal remarks about me you wl suffer for It." The chairman remarked that whateve asperity might exist between the gentle men from Wisconsin ought not to ente Into a national conji|ntlon. Me was sat Islled that the gentUmcn In the end would be found supporting'the ticket and he re fused to recognize Mr. Dockery for the pur pose of addressing the convention. Mr. Dockery then left the stand and this terminated the Incident. ANOTHER HOLD-UP IN CHICAGO. Tour Robber* Secure SS,OOu from yew York lilscuit Company. Chicago, July 11.—Four men armed with revolvers entered the office of the »u- York Uiscuit company at 13 o'clock Saturday, "held up" the cashier at tho muzzles of their pistols, and, seizing- the money prepared to meet the pay roll, made off with it. The robbers secured over $2,000 and escaped without Iravbiff any clew to their identity. . The offices of the company are at Jiiimlolph :nid Morgan streets and there v.-erc 400 people in the building at tha time, Clerk EdwarJ Hines sat close beside the money, and wJien the door to the bookkeeper's inclosure swung 1 open nnd n man entered HinJI thought ho was a telephone repairman. A moment Inter he-was astonished to see two revolvers pointing a.t him. "Stay where-you. are," cried the robber, who immediately scooped in the money on the desk and placed' it in a saclc. Then the thief, with the sack in one hand and a pistol in the other, backed through the door of the private office and fie?parted through the other door to Morgan street. At the same time his three companions left by the other two doors, • joined their companion on the Morgan street sidewalk, and Hie party fled west, through the alley between Lake and Randolph street';. None of the robbers was mnxlicd acd each was as cool and collected as a person who made aa everyday visit- to the building. A SUDDEN ,CAL.L. Alotlon to Adjourn. Goy. Stone, of Missouri, was next recognized, to move an adjournment. He said the work thus far done had been, in Mi Judgment, well done, but they had yet to name an associate for thoir great leader on the ticket. He believed this was an Important work which should not be hastily or Inconsiderately performed. It should, on tho contrary, be performed In the most mature and deliberate manner possible, and to the end that the delegations might have an opportunity, to confer with each other and arrive at a conclusion which In the end would strengthen the ticket, and In order that no mistake might be made, he moved' that the convention do now adjourn until 12 o'clock, to-morrow. The galleries, whlch.-were densely packed, and which to a greater extent before than last night, undertook to. tako charge of the proceedings,' here Interposed a loud chorus of noes, Mr. Henry, of Mississippi, moved to make the hour ten o'clock. Gov. Sto»e accepted the amendment. Convention Adjourns. The audience followed the taking of tfce votp with quite as much Interest as It had Telegraph Editor on Now York Herald.
