It is with no ordinary plcaSltro that tic
central comniiltcp communicate this infor
mation. They would, however, at the same
.time, urge upon the county committees, ap
pointed by the convention, the importance
of an early, a prompt and a faithful dis
chartro of the duties confided to them. The
'reminty ot success is sometimes lop apt
to produce a fatal apathy., The democratic
party have now tho numerical strength to
command success. Let that strength then
he efficiently exerted. Let there be a stiict
organizational the various wards, boroughs,
townshins and codnties of the ''State. Let
