The Convention. In the State Convention, on Saturday, Mr. Stuart, of Augusta, made a personal explanation touching the letter read by Mr. Wise on the day previous.

With such a contrariety of opinion, we, as outsiders, find ourselves at sea on this most important question; so we may have to take a practical view of it.
