Large numbers of the delegates aud
prominent politicians, who have been in
Baltimore in attendance on th3 Demo
oratio Convention, for the pust three
days, were in town to-day, and among
them the general theme of conversation
was the result arrived at. All of them,
without exception, seemed satisfied, and
not oue expressed himself as opposed to
the candidates or platform. The South?
ern men, especially, displayed much en?
thusiasm, ;iud in speaking seemed confi?
dent that Greeley would make a better
run in tbeir section than even a straight

The residence of Senator Sumner bas
beeu thronged all day by tho delegates
on tneir way home. A large majority of
them were, of course, from the Southern
States, and their object seemed to be to
get Mr. Sumner to make Rome public
expression concerning tho Greeley cam?
paign. This evening the delegation from
Texan, headed by Colonel Ford, called
upon the Senator in a body, and spent
over an hour in conversation with bim.
They informed Mr. Sumner that they
called upon him for the purpose of se?
curing bin aid iu an effort to carry off t
portion of the negro vote of the Soutl
from the Republican party, and bring'
ing it over to thc suprortof Mr. Gree
ley. They represented that through th<
manipulation of what they formed car
pet-baggors, the negroes of the Soutl
had become prejudiced against th?
Democratic party, and would not sup
port even so greut a friend of their rac?
as Horace Greeley, because he was nomi
nut ed by that party. Mr. Sumner sai<
they mu.it inspire contideuce in th
colored people; to which the members o
thc delegation replied that they desiree
to do so, but it could bo done mos
effectually by thc Senator from Massa
eh use tts, as the colored people had euc!
confidence in him that they would do a
To this, Mr. Sumner replied that hi
great ambition was to see the countr
once more at peace, and all its people rt
oouctled. He wauted not only the Nort
aud the South reconciled, but the whit?
and tbe blacks. If this could be accon
plisbed by the election of Mr. Greeley
I it would be, in his judgment, the great
est movement since the wur. If he wa
called upon to give the watch-word <
the campaign, he would say, "Recoi
ciliatiou." He would have it the text c
every speech on the hustings. If tb
people of the United States, North e
well as South, could only get to unde:
stand that the election of Mr. Greek
means reconciliation of the North an
South, of the whites and blacks, the
i would give him a support such as r
j other candidate for the Presidency ht
? ever received. Speaking for himself, 1
! believed Mr. Greeley's election would t
far to promote reconciliation and seen
peace to the whole country. Mr. Gre
ley was naturally a man of peace, and

would endeavor to promote peace ai
A delegate asked Mr. Sumner what I
thought of Greeley's chances of ole
tion, to which the Senator replied, tb
from all the evidences before him-ai
be had been at some pains to get at t
bottom of the matter-be thought Gre
ley's chac?es very good. He had i
faith in the assertion that the rank ai
file of the Democracy would refuse
support Mr. Greeley. He had recent
been assured by a distinguished Dem
eratic Senator-Thurman, of Ohio-tl
the ranks of the Democracy would ck
up solid behind Mr. Greeley.
In reply to a question from Mr. So
ner, a delegate said that he knew t
more intelligent portion of the color
people of the South would vote for Gr
ley. Mr. Sumner said it was a miste
to suppose that all the colored vot
would support Grant. The trouble w
