The poj-nlar opinion that Admiral Farragut is
to be at once tent to Wilmington, and that an
expedition against that 'po t is organising, is
wholly Incorrect. His work In Mobile 11 ly doct
not cease even with tbe capture of Fort M-irgan.
Moieover, tbe Job at Wilmington is one in which
no cousidi ruble success can bo achieved, except
by combined attack of the army and navy ; and
ile-lriible a it Is that tbe place should bo ren-'cu-
pied end repossessed, tbe emergencies of Grant
end Sherman require that every available man

Iu announcing the vote of New York, Mr.
Church said that New York regretted to pass by
ber favorite son ; but she stands now, as she hit
ever stood, ready to tacritlce her dearest personal
preferences for the public good.
Holding it to be her duty, above all others, to
do all in her power to repcuo the country from
the tyranny ibat opprcspes it, having full contl-
dence in the democracy, iho abili y, and patriot
ism of Geneial George 11 McClellan, New York
glvet him ber entire electral Vote.
Several delegations having cast their rotet for
Doratio Seymonr, when the call of Slates bad
been goue through with, Governor Seymour re
marked that, as some gentlemen had done bim
tbe honor to name bim for nomination, it would
be affectation to say that tholr expressions of
preference did not give bim pleasure; but he
owed ' to himself to say thut m ny months ago
he advised hit friends in New York tb it, fur
various reasons, private and pub I ', ho would not
be a candidate for the Chicago nomination.
Having made that announcement, he would
lack tbe honor of a man he would d i great In
justice to those friends to permit his name to
be used U"W. As a member of the New York
delegation he personally thought it advisable to
support an eminent jui 1st of that Sute for nomi
