- eoon be discovered that instead of a dozen
Whigs In that State, enough will be scared
' up to convince Messrs. Toombs and Slcph .
na that they will have to follow instead of
. lead the people. We were convinced, at an I
early stage in the proceedings of the Con- j
vention, from what 'Southern delegates
themselves said, that Gen. Scott was popu-
lar with the masses even in the South, more
so than any other man, and we have always
noticed that when the test ponies, the poli
ticians are with the people. : The masses
have the votes, ' and to their decision we
'cheerfully, willingly and hopefully commit
the fate of our candidate. They will not

. deeds and so successfully served his country,
to be beaten by one who has comparatively
' done nothing.
