Mr. Randolph.

The speech of G. W. Randolph, of this city, in the Convention, is attracting general re-mark. It was one of the most powerful arguments ever heard in that or any other deliberative body. It was as simple, majestic and irresistible as the great torrent of Niagara. Without an effort, it toppled down and bore away every framework of sophistry that had been reared on the other side. Mr. Randolph's discourse is pure reason. He does not affect the graces of the orator. But he is a man of might, and to draw a simile from the profession of his youth, carries too many guns for any hostile craft in the Convention waters.
