We do not anticipate that our feeble
voice can be heard abrvc tlie turmoil and
tumult at Ualtimore, but if it could, wc
would say :
Gentlemen 01 the Convention :
(leant that man tlto relentless enemy of
tlfe cVemocratic party and of the country,
fdro ius'ists upon the nomination of anyone
v mdidatc over and against all others. Do
not suffer yourselves to sacrifice the good
of the whole for the sate of one part. He
member that in union alone, there is strength
and success Aud while that is true, do
not forget that the spirit which is generous
to one portion at the expense of the other,
is the spirit of injustice, and of disunion.
Oast it out from you and remember that
you arc the honored representatives of the
whole party, that you can destroy, but you
No man now living originated the Demo
cratic parly no man has a fee simple in
it no man can claim it as his own. The
doctrine that any man has superior aud
overshadowing claims upon the party, ii a
nvost pernicious one ; but it is perfectly
tound to say that the party as a whole has
a positive nud undeniable claim to the
ability and honest exertions of its every
individual member. Wcro there not great
men before Agamemanen, and is Stephen
Arnold Douglas, tlie lat of the race of
men qualified for the office of Present I
Where then arc Breckinridge, aud Dick
inson, and' Guthrie, and Cusbiug, and
1 Iun tor, and Lane, aud Davis', and Dallas,
nil of them the peers and most of them
i upcrior to Mr. Douglas
If any one man is objectionable to a
large majority of the party, why injist
that he shall be nominated ? Mr. Doug
las utter'y denies and repudiates a right
claimed by the citizens of fifteen States of
tliis confederacy. Is it reasonable, is it
ju't to force those citizens to vote for this
man who thus refuses them, what the con-
etitution-is thought to' guarantee to all-
Equal rights! Or, ou the other hand is
it po'iiie to' forcn those fifteen States out
of the party, and thm permit the Demo
ratio party in the North to be utterly an
nihilated I If the South were to claim
that the northern citizen had no right in
the common Territory of the nation, what
tremendous storm would be raised ! but
the North maSes just that claim, sud is
ilnlignrfnt tllat the South docs not quietly
acquiesce. Shame on sucli inequality.
Gentlemen or the Convention:
Pauc before you commit such a sti.pcn-
dous crime as a sectional division of tho
democratic party-such an egregious error ( 1)cmocratJc partv thuu, tlllt, whi,h cxIttC(j
m the nomination of a man, repudiated by at Charleston. Tho heated pasJons of
unc halt of the States. e are loyal-do sueh .,s r:l3,lly (t,tcniliued't0 ruiu if ,

Know Nothing for Pieidcnt, although
they had proclaimed their choice to bo
Howard, aud had demanded his nomina
tion as the price of their allegiance. Tho
Chase men feel that their candidate was
.slaughtered in the house of his friends
that even Ohio would not bujlort his pre
tension. The friends of Seward feel that
an 'irrepressible conflict' against their fa
vorite has brought him to the ground by
the thrust of a 'base marauding lance.'
The prestige of victory is not with the op-
l position they have no heart for the work,
no stomach for the fight, lhcir nomina
tion fell like u wet blanket upon the most
ardent of tho opposition. With a good
candidate on the part of the Democracy,
the victory will bo an easy one.
S&' Major General Thomas Sidney
Jessup, Quartermaster General of the Ar
my, died in Washington city, Sunday mor
ning last, of paralysis. He was born iu Vir
gima, in 17Sy. In 1603 he entered tho
Army as sccoud lieutenant of infantry.
In he was brigader major aud acting
adjutant general to General Hull, lu
1611 ho was made brevet lieutenant colo
nel for gallant services at Chippewa. In
the same year, we believe, he was appoint
cd to watch the proceedings of tho disunion
convention at Hartford. In the same
year, also, he was breveted colonel for gal
lant conduct at Niagara. In 1818 he was
appointed Adjutant General, with the rank
of colonel; aud tho name year Quarter
master General, with the rank of briga
dier general ; and was breveted major
general in May, 1928, for ten year's meri
torious service. IIo was assigned to the
command of the army in the Creek nation,
Alabama, iu 13lUi,and succeeded General
Call iu Florida on the 6th December,
1S3G; was wounded in action with the
Seminole Indians, near Jupiter Inlet, ou
the 11th January, 183-3 j and was suc
ceeded by Colonel 'A. Taylor on tho loth
May, 1S!)3 ; whereupon he returned to the
duties of his department, which he man
aged with distinguished ability.
liErunncAX Meanness. The llar
ijsburg (Hep.) Til-graph, two weeks ago,
denounced tho Editor of -this Journal, as
"ignoran' aud fetupid," for stating that
llunnibul ILitalin, was "a regular' Free
Trader." Wc gavo tho Editor of tho Tele
graph, a candid hearing, and thou proved
from the Hecord, that his Vice Presiden
tial candidate, was un out and out free
trader, and in the Convention of 1843
when Gen. Cass, was nominated for l'rcsi
dent, that said Humin voted aqainst
a 'Protective Tariff.' Unmanly and mean-
ly, the Kditor of tho Telegraph, like our '
neighbor over the way, who chuckels at
tho head of tho "Dark-Lantern Hepubli
can," when closely pursued, attempts to
evade the responsibility by bkulkiug tho
question. This we regard as tho consum
mation of Itepubliean meanness. " Lit

As (he Democratic party arc about to
dominate a candidate for the Presidency)
we lay before our readers the following
"histoiical facts'1 and opinions of the press
which we gather from our eotcmporaiies
No one would rejoice in tlie nomination of
tlie Hon. D. S. Dickinson of New York,
more thau we; especially if it would secure
the Union and the harmony of the patty :
liisTomc.u. r.U'Ts the division or
Iu 171)0, at tlie Presidential election be
tween (he Democracy who voted for Thom
as .lelterson, unu tlie reucralistwho voted
for John Adams, tho latter got every elec

at the Presidential election the same can
didates in the field the Federalist Ad
ams received tho unanimous electoral Vote
of New Kngland. The whole North voted
lor Adams on botlt occasions, save parts
of Pennsylvania and New York. The
South was nearly or quite unanimous for

son was running lor 1 resident outhe Dem
ocratic ticket, every New Fjtiglanl State
voted again-t him save criuout. All the
Southern States voted for him save Dela

The Now England States arc now where
ihoy were in the days of J ;lTcr50ii and
Jackson oppo'Cd to the Democratic pir
ty. After all the mutat.ous of po.itics
and of lime, tho divisions of parties arc
geographically about as they were 1700
All of which shows ery clearly how
much is expected of New York and tho
other Middle States at this peculiarly ex
citing crisis iu our political history. We
remarked the other day that we could as
sure our Southern friends that iu the event
of Mr. Dickinson receiving tho nomination
he is sure to carry the State of New York
by an overwhelming majority. AVc be
lieve Mr. Dickinson will have every Dem
ocratic vote in the State, together with tlie
national and conservative votes of the old
Whig and American parties.
