The Georgia Muddle.
The sitation ovor in Georgia is by
m ias checering. The account pub
iilhed elsewhere shows that Uhe State
Democratic Conve#invY has adjourned
without making any nomination for
Governor. The two-thirds riule 1 in
force. Itid Governor Colquitt, tHe lead
ing caidlidate, fiiled to receive the
re(uisite vote. Various reasonis are
U4niWd for this state of thinlfgs. Gov
Ceror CUolquitt's adminiistrationi inl gel

of a great majority of the Georgia
belmocacy. While it is conceded that

well at. tle hinids of his people. Iis
opponents clialin that lie is but the
centre of' a political "r-ing" that have
imaipulated affitirs to suit their own
purposes. In the StatU. Convention

The frieiids of the Governior seem to
