Tlio National Democratic Convention
assembled in St. Louis qii the 27th
John a McClernand, of Illinois, was
elected permanent President of tiie Cour

Connecticut has cut the Gordiau knot

at least tied them so that they could

A young lady from. this cjty, who at
tended the Cincinnati Convention, write
that there were seven hundred and fifty

there were about 5,003 spectators pres
entonly those having tickets (other
than delegates)heiiig permitted to en
ter the hall where the Convention was
held. The excitement after. the ballot
ing commenced .vas tremendous. After
the final ballot, and Hayes was declar
ed the choice ot the Convention, the
hall was the scene of the wildest enthu
siasm, delegates and audience joining
in cheers and shoots that entirely drown
e4 the music of the brass bands in at
tendance. It is generally conceded to
bave been the largest and most enthusi
astic Republican Convention that , ever
At the outbreak ot the war, Gov.
Haye was appointed Major of the 23d
Ohio Infantry. For bravery and meri
torious service he was severally promo
ted to a Lieutenant Colonelcy, Colonel
cy, Brigadier Genera'cy, and. iu 1S64,
for bravery at Fisher's Hill and Cedar
Creek, he was breveted ;Major General.
As a soldier he was one of the bravest
and mostdaring,winning laurels wherev.
er Le went, j In the spring -of 1865 he
was given command of an . expedition
against Lynchburg, and was preparing
to cross the mountains of West Virgin
ia when the' war was brought U a close.

O. F., Wednesday evening, the follow

"Any good reliable Democrat, re
marks the Mobile Register, "can carry

On Wednesday, as the telegraph in-
forrqsos, Samuel J. Tilden, ot New
j Yctk, was nominated as the Demo
cratic Presidential candidare, on the
third ballot.. Mr. Tilden is probably
tlie strongest man the Convention could
have nominated out of the Democratic
party.. Immediately after nominating
Mr. 'lilden, the Convention' adjourned
n:ii il ThiTi-wlay, when a candidate for the
Vice Presidency will be nominated.
VV ho this will be remains to 1k seen.
If the telegraphic reports ate to re-
ceive credit, the proceedings of the Con
vention wero decidedly inharmonious,
the majority shown g anything but fair
play to the minority.
The platform is entirely too lenctliv

fact it is a kind of ' double entendre.

suit the views of the citizens of the difl

We are not disappointed in either the
nomination or the platform. No mat
ter who is tacked on to the ticket will
rrden, Hayes and Wheeler will be th.
next President and Vice President of
the United States, just so sure as there
is an election.

Delegates in attendance on the St.
Lous Convention tredicted that it was
the last National Democratic Conven
tion that would ' ever be . held. Well,
to sjieak the unvarnished ' truth, there
was blamed little use ot holding the one
on the 27th.

Just before going to press we learn
that Gov. Hendricks, ot Indiana, is the
nominee of the Louis Convention
for the Vice Presidency. , As between
Hays and Wheeler, awl Tilden and
Hendricks, Oregon will cast her electo
ral vote for the two first named the
Republican nominees.
Our Democratic friends employed the
band and burned some owder, and had
our long.faced Governor on for a speed
i lnst "''-Xht, but with all their efforts the
Democratic heart wouldn't fire there
wan t anything' to enthuse over, and
the "leaders" couldn't make the rank
and rile see it in any other light. T e
Democracy never put in the field a tick
et which they at least the better in
formed of that party looked upon, as
so hop lwS f o'ection as the preseu.
national Democratic ticket.

Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia aim
Georgia in October. Pennsylvania
winch formerly gave the .key in Oetoliei

ber. If any one ever doubted the unfitness
of Democracy to rule, the doubt must
have been dispelled bv this time. Si
months' control of the House of Iiepre
sentatives proves Democracy to be little
batter than an imbecile iu the manage
ment of pnb'ic affairs. While the in
dustries of the country are languishing
tor needed legislation, nothing bas been
done to revive them.
A Big Game of Draw. Recently
in Washington, John Chamberlain, Un

set down to a little game ot "draw."
The game soon became interesting, and

the tune of $140 ,000.

Prominent delegates to the Demo
cratic C onvention aro already predicting

They predict that New York will give
a rousing Republican majority and we
do not doubt the prediction.
