RlC PI T.I.IC AN CONVENTION. T!lC
RcpuWiciii vi : :-s of Albany assembled
In maas convention; on Wednesday
eveiiiii"; at, the Court Hotr-e, and
placed In nomination a full municipal
ticket to tie voted for on Monday.
Mr. I. Frnmnn. was selected as
Chairman, M. C. Ooorge, Esq., Sec
retary, and Mr. ST. Batim, Assistant
Secretary. A large crowd of citizens
wore in attendance, the Court House
being pretty well filled. The Chair
man staled. In a few remarks to the
Convention, that he intended hereafter
lo consult his own interests when eas
ing his vote for city officers If the
ticket nominated suited him he would
lUpport it ; it not. he wouldn't. This
sentiment was loudly applauded by
the Democrats present. The proceed
ings of the convention were harmon
ious, the ticket selected composed of
representative men, and we believe
generally acceptable to the Republican
voters of the city, and consequently
will be elected. Following are the
gentlemen who got away with the
Dominations i For Mayor, L. Elklns;
Recorder. J. Hannon; Treasurer, J.
B. Titus; Marshal The. Cartwright;
Councilmen, Jas, II.' Foster, Aaron

at the same place, a Sociable was given
by the ladies, at which ice eream,
fresh oysters, coffee, etc., were pro
vided to satisfy the-inner man, while
vocal and Instrumental music charmed
the hours away. The Opera Housewas
crowded, and the general expression
was that it was the most delightful
Occasion that ourscitizens have enjoyed
for years. The total receipts were,
for Thursday, 225. As lunch was to

Good Ticket. The ticket placed
In Domination by tlie Republican
Convention on Wednesday night Is a
good one, and meets with more gen
eral approval than any ticket nomi
nated since we have been acquainted
with the city. The whine made by
Brown In ye terday's paper, that tlie
ticket is in the interest of the Canal
Company, and if elected will bankrupt
the, city, even in the absence of any
thing .that could be honestly said
against the gentlemen composing that
ticket, is very silly, even for BrO'vO.
The gentlemen nominated by the Re
publican convention for the City
Council, at whom this silly sling is
made, are among our oldest and most
respected citizens, who wordd lie tlie
very last men in this city to do any
thing that would tarnish tlicir fair
reputations, or the reputation of our
dtjr. Such insinuations are in very
bad taste, coming Irom the quarter it
does, and shows plainly tlie animus
