I am induced to think, from the in-'
timations of the peace papers and of
individuals, that there will be a con-
siderable minority of the Democracy !
of the North who will not vote for !
McClellan, and that tbey may put up
some other candidate.
His nomination has not been greet-
ed as cordially as was anticipated,
and the Republicans are evidently ia
better spirits than they were before
the convention at Chicago. Perhaps
the fall of Fort Gaines and Morgan,
and of Atlanta, many have caused I,
tbe apparent change of feeling in the .
ortn. It is thought those event,
caused McClellan to ignore the plat- j
form, or the construction given it by 1
the unconditional peace men, in his ;
letter of acceptance. I remember j
that Dr. Macker said during his visit
here about three weeks since, that the
Northern peeple were as unstable and '
capricious as spoiled children, and
that although a large majoritv seem
ed resolved for peace, the capture of
Richmond or Atlanta would cause
most of them to renew their shouts
for war. Certainly they are greatly
encouraged by those raptures, and
seem persuadwd that the end of the
"Rebellion" is near at hind. The
Republican papers now urge Lincoln
to employ all of his Navy, if necessa
ry, to seal up the port of Wilming
