is but one honorable choice. It
is the duty of etery good and
true Democrat to ally to the sup-
port of the nomineds-to render
a free and volunteer support as a
tribute to those principles and
that cause which have always
been, as they still are, dear to
every heart, because they are
thoroughly interwoven with the
true glory and highest interest of
the country. We should regard
the loss of Florida at this ominous
conjuncture in the highest degree
disastrous, not alone to the Demo-
cratic party of the Union, but to
the Union itself. It is vain to
deny or attempt to conceal, that
the principal element upon which
the Opposition pafty rely for suc-
cess is the dissensions which they
know have existence in the bosom
of the Democratic party itself.-
But, as true and loyal Democrats,
we can never consent to unite
with our own worst enemies in
order to wreak vengeance upon-
owuselves; for such vengeance
would involve all in a common
disaster, and bring upon our party
and our country consequences the
most disastrous. Let us, then, be
true to ourselves, and to be thus
true it is essential that we should
rally, as one man, to the support
of the Democratic nominees.
Streams do not rise higher than
their fountains, so political par'-
ties do not go above their level to
find men on whom to bestow their
suffrages. The Convention that
met in Baltimore and nominated
BELL and EVERETT, for the Pre-
sidency and Vice-Presidency, re-
presented the timidity and con-
servatism, not to say cowardice,
of American politics. Its plat-
form entirely shirks the issues of
the day, and its nominees, if they
have any, opinions at all, are not
noted for the frankness or bold-
ness with which they express
The lack of enthusiasm with
which the nomination has been
received, is very marked every
where. This could not be other-
wise. Icicles do not emit fire-
sparks. A party that has no en-
thusiasm, cannot be expected tc
make an exhibition of that gen-
erous quality. Hence the appa-
rent indifference with which the
nominations are met. The re,
sult causes no ripple on the sur.
face of politics. A aead calm
pervades the party from one end
of the country to the other.
In 1856, this party under an-
other name, carried a single State
which gave eight electoral votes
It is possible it may do as well
this time. It will hardly do bet.
ter. A party to be successful]
must possess some affirmative
qualities. It cannot occupy nega-
tive or neutral ground, and expect
to find favor. A party without
principles is like a skeleton de.
void of blood and muscles-its
power of locomotion is gone.
We hear 'but one opinion of the
Democratic nominations for Pre.
sident and Vice-President, BRECK.
ENRIOGE and LANE, and that ii

The Democracy has within iti
ranks many sound statesmen

support and confidence of the

lOiins at Blaltimore.
We appropriate and change to
suid our own views, the following
article from the Savanndah News.
From the day the representa-
tives of the Southern democratic
States in the Charleston Conven-
tion took their stand in vindica-
tion of the constitution and in op-
position to squatter sovereignty
dictation, we entertained no hope
of reconciliation between the true
democracy of the country and the
DOUGLAS faction. The overbear-
ing dictatorial spirit of those who
sought to force DoUGLAs and his
platform on the Convention, and
the impossibility of honorable or
safe retreat from the Jpst position
assumed by the representatives of
the true democracy of the country
in defence of vital constitutional
principles, admitted of no reson-
able expectation of harmonious
reunion and concert of action at
Baltimore.' The result has fully
justified our views.
The National Democracy is not
disintegrated-the party is not
split or broken up-it is only
purged and purified. Having
freed itself from the odious here-
sies'and free-soil taint with which
personal ambition had inoculated
it, and which, like a foul and nox-
ious parasite, was preying upon
its vitals, it now stand firm and
united upon the broad principles
of constitutional rights, "erect,
redeemed, regenerated and disen-
The DouGLAS-ites have failed
to accomplish the object for which
they resorted to the most desper-
ate and unscrupulous means-
they have neither secured the
nomination of the National De-
mocracy nor broken up the party.
Their faithless chief goes out of
the Democratic camp the nominee
of a minority of the States, and

cratic State t pc lhis candi-
dacy ; while the true Democracy
-respecting a majority of the
States-with every certain Demo-
cratic State inthe Union, stand-
ing true the time-honored princi-
ples of the party, have inscribed
upon their ever victorious banner
the names of BRECKENRIDGE and

We desire to congratulate the
friends of the Union and the coun-
try that there still exists a Na-
tional Demrcratic Party, whose
sound constitutional principles
are recognized and maintained
by a majority of the States in the

true interests of the nation are

elected by a sweeping majority.-,
He is ri Democrat of yesterday.
All his life has been devoted to
the principles of the party founded
by Jefferson and he has never
been faltered in their advocacy,
in sunshine or in storm. As a
native son of the Sonth, he is ar-
dently attached to every ,interest

beloved. Warm, generous and

needed, it was furnished in the
enthusiasm exhibited by his sup-
porters in the Convention when
the fact of his nomination was
known. Their excitement was
beyond control, and gave itself
vent in shouts, cheers, waving of
hats and other demonstrations of
gratification. That his was a

not be questioned even by the

DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS.-The De-

and Hon R. B. Hilton of this city for

duty without feat or favor. our per

with Mr. Hilton, prompt us to accord
him every virtue that could adorn the

great misfortune, is, that they should be
