MY DEAR SIR The .uuthorn
llome of the 5th instant, coltainiing
your editorial on the policy.to ibe
pursued by -the Southern Statoe in
reforence to -tho next national Demo
cratic c onvention, reached mu a day
or two ago,. and, aloug with it, the
letter in which you wore kind enough
to ask lily opillion Oil this question.
Though I. calnn 1tfbatter n sull' that
inly opinions .- may onterttin canl
huve the wpight. your partiality would
induce you tQ attaqh.jo thaw, I most
cheerfully . copiply witit. tho requoat
contained in yoqij letter :. becoauso it,
is oly by qqu tatiou tiand dicis-.
bion among ouistlves that we can
hope to act judiciously and harmuoni
It would, perhaps, be suffluient to
say -that I concur fully in the views
yO4 have expresod,- as to the impro-.
priety of the South taking iny part
in the tippronclaing conventiti ; but
in doferenco to your wishes, I give,
briefly, the renasos which have in
duced this conviction in my mind.
1. The Southern delegates in a na
tional convention could exerciso no
influence in shaping. the policy, mak
ing up 'the isues or selecting the
candidates for tho next contest, with
out serioutly iiijulilig the propect
of a Dlmociatie triuiph. That thi.
vould inovitably . bo tho case, is
proven by the result of tho last
bomocratio convention, where th
very preso'nio of Southerners was us-l
to prejudice'othe notion and to defeat
the candidates of our party.
