The Maryland Institute Convention,
which also claimed to be tho representa

demands its recognition upon alleged in
justice to Domocratio State delegations,
and it.i decluiotion of sound ' Democratic

members from all tho Democratic Stutes,
its proceedings wero equally irrogulnr with
thai of the Front Street Theatre.
" In this lamentable position, when those
to whom the Domocratio pnrty of tho

The say and believe that somo of the
most cherished pnd sacred rules of the
party wero violated, and disregarded in
the Convention both ut Charleston and
Baltimore. Thoy point to the fact that
no certain Democratic State was fully rep
resented in the Convention at tho time
his nomination was declared to bo made;
that two thirds of a full Convention was
not then present, and that the highest
voto polled for him at any timo was 181 J
when 202 vofo3 wero required to m;ike a
nomination having been ruled so, both
by tho Chairman and the Convention it
self; which ruling is unrepealed to this
dt:y. They also point to Uk- fact thnl all
but about .HI of these 181 delegates were
from states in which the Democrats arc
either in a hopeless minority or havo but
an even chance of success (villi tho Ro
publicans. Ou the other hand it is said that in the
Convention that nominated Mr. Breekin
ridgo 210 delegates casting 105 undispu
ted votes wero prescrtt. Theeo delegates
represented states certain to cast 127 elec
toral vot-es for any Democrat regularly
and fuirly nominated.
Now when tho minds of men ai e so wide
asunder, in relation to party obligations,
is it not the height of madness is it not
rediculous folly, to undertake to drive
them into tho support of nny particular
man ? surely it is, and thoso win under
iuko it cither cannot have tbo. good of the
party at heart, or elso they are destitute
of charity which wo haven right to do
mand. Wo repeat, that thero is but ono
way of whipping Old Abe Lincoln, and
that is for every Democrat, to cast his
vote for tho Reading Electoral ticket.
This will do il but nothing else will.
Thoso who docline doing so, whether
they are the particular , friends of Judgo
Douglas or Mr. Breckenridgo, are aiding
and abetting the Republicans. Tho case
is so plain and clear that r.o man can bo
mistaken ; and we are quite sure that tho
