The ConventiOn of Black Republicans in
Baltimore have re-dominated for h'residenfcif
their country Abraham Lincoln, the Illinois
rail-splitter, and for Vice President Andrew
Johnson, known in the West as the Tennessee
tailor, one of the meanest of that craft ; wheth
er they shall ever be elected or not depends upon
the Confederate army altogether.
It appears also that .Lincoln and his friends
have, been lucky, for so far, hi the ill success
Grant and Butler, and in their precise meas
ure 0f.,i1l success. If either of these two had
taken Richmond before the Convention, then
Butler or Grant would have been nominated
for President. 'lf they had been already and
decisively defeated, and their armies cut to
pieces, Ahem neither Lincoln or any other Black.
Republican would have had the slighestchanee
of election. .
Lincoln then, and his gang have been lucky
es,-we said so far. = But to win his election in
November this indecisive work of the _Federal
armies, neither triumphantly victorious nor
hopelessly cut to pied—neither taking Rich
mond nor taking . hyßichniond—w ill do at all.
The Yankee nation is now holding itself pre
pared to put . on its• most gracious smiles arid
accord to us the same tender consideration
which has been shown to the citizens of Vicks
burg. Let them only haul 'down our flag on
that auspicious morning, and read their Decla
ration of Independence on our Capitol Square
and Lincoln is already elected President. In
this stage of thy business also, ltowever, our
artily Hasa voice ; and it shall continue to baffle,
repulse, and cut up the Federal fore( s, and
finally' drive them from the soil of Virginia, us
we fervently trust, trust, then this Baltimore nomina
tion will nut gain Lincoln ,a single vote in No
In that case who NOR be the next President I ,
in the enemy's country 7 Not Fremont with
his "radical abolition." The era for that
school of politics will be peat. •But there re
mains-another party—the Democrats , they be
ing also divided, at the present into War De- •
octets and Peace Democrats, but whowould all
be Peace Democrats in the - event supposed—that
is, in the event of a total failure of the Federal
campaign of 1864. Now the very latest intel
ligence brought us from that country by a'spec
ial chunni4 informs us of these two further
facts : that, the populir mind became at once
wildly agitated on the announcement of this
Baltimore nomination and_that in Maryland,
especially, disturbance was apprehended.' In
fact the Democrats ‘ of the North, who have waited
four years, not too patiently, trusting to regain
. power and profit which they but lately held to
be a Democratic inheritance,' must naturally be
provoked beyond endurance at this audacious
attempt off,,incoln and - Ssward to tideroughshod
over them four years more.
We learn that the - Democrats are now uni
versally turning their thoughts to Franklin_
Pierce and the Connoieticut'Seyinour as-their
nominees for President and Viee.President.—
To give them the least chance of electing those
two advocates of peace, Grant must be defeated,.
the invasion must collapse and die out. and the
very name of war must become a word of horror,
uttered with loathing, and execration. There
fore, it is the interest of the Democrats to do their
very uttermost to :Deakin the Federal army, dis
credit Federal finance, in short to extinguish
the. war altogether, in order to exiing,uish the
party which invented the :car 'and governs it and
lives by it.
The last insignificant fact, which comes to
us by special advices is, that immediately on
the Baltimore' nomination, gold' reye to one
hundred and ninety-seven.. Gold is a sense
tive substance, and it feels another shiver, and
sinks back a little moie into its crypts, at the
idea of another four years tit' Lincoln and Chase,
and those 'dreadful paper-mills and steam-pres
ses, the smoke of whose, fatal machinery. as
condeth up for ever and ev*f
- Here, then are the elernents of trouble and
storm,'which happily threaten to interfere, not
with Lincoln's election, tint with the peace . of
Yankee society. Before 'November the whole
North may be writhing in intestine convul
sions; her brute mass now pressing us soheavi
ly may be flung off, and this Confederacy may
be standing elect, redeemed,' radiant, trium
phant; shaking her invincible locks in the sun.
For all this we look to the Confederate Artily.
Lee, Beauregard and Admen can b'otii give
the Yankees a President and make us rid of
them and their President for ever.

Firit. He ordered Colonel Greene to organ-__
ize'the Freedman's Village, for the protection
of the bll;ck man and his family, upon the
Arlington estate, belonging to the rebel Gen
eral Lee. That village is a success.
Secondly. He has bimaelf recently selected

in Virginia- from wounds inflicted by Lee's
General 51eigs has been dire7:fed.to super Vise
the laying-out of the grounds. How appropiate
that Lee's lands'should be liediented to two such
noble purposes—the free living black man whom
Lee would enslave, and the bodies of the dead
soldiers whom Lee had killed in a wicked cause!
Let this record stand to the everlasting credit

looked around deliberately, first upon the horse
