Asa Packer, whom the Democrats of
Pennsylvania have just nominated for
Governor would hardly do to run oa the
same ticket with Gen. Rosecrans, whom
the Democrats of the next State West
ward are trying their worst to support
with a show of cheerfulness. He is a man
reputed wise, because of a faculty of look -in"
wise and keeping quiet. In Tamman
py Hall last summer the Pennsylvania
Democrats tried long to persuade the Con
vention that he was a fit man fi r the
Presidency, but with very different success.
They are not now likely to have any bet
ter luck in trying to persuade their own
people of his fitness for the Governorship.
We are inclined to think they have uot
made the most of their opportunities.

behind Mr. Packer on the first ballot,
would have been a much stronger candi
