Till: NOMINA TION.
The National Democratic Conven
tion i:i noininatiii". \V. S. Hancock of
Pennsylvania for President, and NY.
I!. Knglish of Indiaua for Vice Presi
dent, have put 'he best ticket in the
Held thai the party could possibly
oiler. If we cailliol win with this
lick'', we can win with none. The
nomination means the burying of all
sectional dilferences, and I he raising
of the issues of the campaign on a j
broad und elevated plane. Hancock
having keen a distinguished I'nion I
soldier, lighting during the whole
wii i' fort he j?i esor\ nt ion of the Union,
cannot in any way be character
ized as U sectional nominee, and Iiis
war record will bring him more votes
in the Northern States than any
other man in the Democratic party.
Sectionalism, which would have been
the Republican campaign argument
if Bayard bad been nominated, is
completely knocked to the ground by
the nomination of Hancock. We
have all along said, despite the
urgency of the Tress of the Stale to
the contrary, that Bayard would not
have been an available candidate, I
because of his Southern proclivities
and the sectional coloring he would
have given the campaign, and we
are now convinced, by what we have
seen ami beard, that we were right,
and that his nomination would have
been the certain defeat of the Demo
crat ic party.
We need a Democratic President,
and if there is any man we can elect,
it is Hancock. It is folly for the
South to waste time in further at
tempts to elevate favorites. We much
prefer Democratic success and home I
rule in the Soul h.
Again, t he nomination of Hancock
means the supremacy of t he civil over
the military law of the laud. Soldier
as he is. with all his military train
ing and military ideas, be has had the
manhood and independence, while
in ?baige of a military department J
of the South after the war, to subordi
mite the military to tin- civil authori
ties, ami the recognition of this
noble act in bis life has done more
i ban any <>t her single act lb cause bis
nominal ion. und will therefore give
charat ter to the campaign.
Again, the nomination of I Ian cock
means harmony. So two single men
had more influence in theConvcn
lion than Tilden and .lohn Kelly:
Tildeu as :i [lower in the land, and
Kelly as the leader of a small but
troublesome faction. The mention
of no name in the ('(invention creat
ed wilder enthusiasm than that of
Samuel .1. Tilden. When Judge
I load Icy, the temporary Chairman,
in his opening speech, said that the
nominees of the last Democratic
Convention were as fairly elected as
.1 elfersi >n or Washington, t he scene in
tin Hall beggars description. Sever
al minutes elapsed before the speak
er could resume his theme and sever
al times afterwards! when the name,
of Tilden was incidentally mention
ed, the speakers were interrupted
with the wildest t bee in; . <)n tile
other hand John Kelly and his fol
lowers came to the Convention for!
the avowed purpose of preventing
ihe nomination of Tilden.
The result of tin- action of the
Convention is, that Tildeu is perfect
ly satisfied "ith t be nominal ion of
Hancock, and John Kelly is happy
j that Tilden is t ut of the way. and
thus harmony has been restored,
I ami dangers avoided which serious
I ly threatened the successoftdie party.
Wo therefore regard ihe nomination
j as a most fortunate one. mid the
I prospects for siiccbss tire certainly
I brighter than ever I?clor?.
A boll has taken place in ihe Hi in
oeratic part> of Kdgcliehl. The
Rhiuchart Democratic Club nut on
the 1 'dt Ii und decla red i he act ion of
the State Democratic dime Cnnvcn
lion as unfair, unwise ami unprccc
di nted, and calls fur a Stale Conven
tion tobe held some time in August
or September to ascertain the tine
sense of the party.

departed friend will ever be enshrined
in our hearts in tenderness and love:
and that we indulge the confident
hope thai the link which has been
broken here may be perfected here
