CUAKi.r.H Jewett, Clinton J May *7,1070. THE DEMOCRATIC PRESS OX THE DEMOCRATIC C0XVEXT10X. The editor of the Belfast Republican, who was a delegate, calls “the position in which the Democratic party of Maine finds itself at this time, with no nominee for Governor, and the convention adjourned to a future day,”—“anomalous." He confesses that he is “not able to pluck the heart out of the mystery." The editor of the Bangor Democrat, who was also a delegate, and one of the most efficient managers of the part'' presses himself as follow" - “The «; ludiciot‘°h appointed the tellers to make •Runt ed' tin- vote entirely lrom the friends of the adjournment with a single excep tion." Whiyfr is a suggestion that somebody was cheated. He continues : “This action of the Convention was hu initiating, indeed. It is not for us at present to speak of the prime motives of these men who inaugurated the move- j rnent, and who took advantage of the thin . representation from remote counties to ef-; feet a purpose which was attempted last' year in the State Convention in Xorembe ga Hall, but which w as so summaiily and overwhelmingly defeated. But good, great good, may yet grow out ot this action. The Convention in Norombega Hall, on the 16th of August, will be fully attended The delcirutcs will eive forth no uncertain sound in their selection ot a candidate and in their resolutions. They will stand by their organization. They will not grovel in the dust before Govern or Chamberlain, or any other Republican.” The Portland Argus, w ith a w ry face, acquiesces in the adjoui ninent, after ac knowledgeing the “infelicity” which oc curred, and deprecating the “heat of earn est w'ords." It is willing to forget the mortifying scenes, and hopes for better things. The Maine Democrat, published atSaco, is apparently disconcerted at the “lame and impotent conclusion” of the conven tion when it says: "By reference to official report of pro ceedings in another column it will be seen that the Democratic State Convention as sembled on Tuesday, not to nominate a candidate for Governor, but to adjourn to meet at Bangor, on Tuesday, August 16, with an exparte programme, and in the “spirit" of the call ol the State Committee as construed by persons in favor of tha adjournment. The programme was sus tained by the convention, as announced by considerable majority. We consider the vote no indication of the convention as to a candidate, or as to the supposed object of the resolution, as collateral ques tions, not the resolution, were discussed to so late an hour, that many felt that in anv event they should be unable to nom inate a candidate that day, and therefore voted to adjourn independent of any other consideration. This action may have been •’eminently wise,” but not being in the spirit of prophecy, we wait the develop ment of events. In the mean time let our friends take the “second thought” and try again.” The Boston Post strikes the key note of the adjournment scheme in the following sentences: “It is in view of the prudence neces sary in dealing with a strung, unscrupu lous, adroit adversary, that our triends in Maine have resolved to move with care, and to suffer no opportunity to achieve success to elude them, and we hope the same wariness will characterize our party movements in all sections. The first ob ject should be to gain the htltn, then a safe harbor can easily be attained and future voyages dirtcled for the benefit of all; iu a substantial craft, too, repaired with new timbers, leaks stopped, barnacles cleared off and all vermin expelled by thorough fumigation.’’ The italics, which are not the Post's, in dicate the grand object. As the Bangor Whig says, the Young Democracy may caroort and prance under the lash, but the old wheel horses will prove too heavy for them and refuse to budge the teuui ex cept along the beaten road. At Portland they were uot fairly in harness, many of the veteran stagers being out at pasture, but In August the whole herd will be cor rslcd, and pedigree will tell. Hon. Win. 1\ Frye, flic next member of Congress Frohl the Second District of Maine, is a native of Lewiston, and now about 38 years old. He graduated at Bow ijoin College in 1850, in the class of which Gen. O. O. Howard, Prof. C. C\ Everett of the Hartford Divinity School, and Prof. John S. Sewall of Brunswick, were mem bers. He adopted the profession of the law and stands at the head of the bar in his county. He was a member of the lower branch of the State Legislature in 1860, 1862 and 18<j7, Mayor of Lewiston in 1865 and 1866, and Attorney General of the State in 1868 and 1866. During all this time his professional business in the courts was constantly extending, and his reputa tion as as advocate increasing, while by common consent he was awarded the high honor of being one of the most eloquent and effective political speakers in the Suite, if not in New England. “Ftrhitmt repreieMli a printiplt."— Maine Standard of June 3d, 1S70. The Washington Star says : •‘Our information from Maine leads us to believe that the Republican party will make considerable gains in the September elections upon the standard Republican majority in the State. Hon- Sidney Perliam, the Republi can candidate for Governor, seems to be sup ported with great unanimity by the Republi can press of the State. Although but fitty-one years of age, lie lias been in public life near ly twenty years. In 1855 he was Speaker of the lower branch of the State Legislature, and was also a member of the Thirty-eighth, Thirty-ninth and Fortieth Congresses, in all of which he acquitted himselt with credit.

Esq., of Kendall's Mills, has just sold a beautiful trotting stallion, coming two years old, sired by Gilbreth Knox and known as the “Geo. Furber colt,” to O. M. Shaw, E«q.. of Bangor, the former owner of the fast trotting stallion Gen. McClellan. Also to Waldo T. Pierce & Co., of Bangor, another of the Gilbreth Knox family called "Silver eye.” coming two years old, both black, and srfid to be very valuable and fast trotting colts. Two thousand dollars was offered by Mr. Pierce for "Knwt-them-all.” lie is a splen did black stallion coming three years old, and j of the Gilbreth Knox family. A similar offer was made by a Boston gentleman a few weeks ago. He is claimed to be quite a wonder amongst trotting colts. We copy the above from the Maine Farmer. Since the sales mentioned. Mr. Gilbreth has sold the promising young stallion, sired by his “Knox,” called “Lively Times,” to G .1 Shaw, of Burnham, of the firm of Chas. Shaw & Son, tanners, will known to be owners of valuable stock. From the sales this Spring1 from Mr. Gilbrcth’s stables, and those of farm ers in this vicinity, it will be noticed that Gilbreth Knox stock stands at the head, amongst first class horsemen. It will be re membered that this horse was awarded the two highest premiums of the New England Fair, 1809, being for the “fastest stallion,” and “the best stallion with progeny.” In one race last Fall he trotted three heats fa.<^r than 2.30. when only seven years old. and never fitted for fast trotting. 11 is best record of half mile, in a race last Fall, was 1.10J, and quarter mile at the rate of 2.18. It is said that his “May day” exhibition at Kendall's Mills, brought out some very valu able colts, threatening in due time, “they say,” to eclipse even their famous sire and grand sire, the two best horses in New England. So says the Waterville Mail. “Knox-them-all," at the Park in this city, is a most beautiful animal. The owner has said that he would not take $5000 for him. The Bangor Whig says Messrs. Going Hathorn & Son are making preparations to commence the erection of a steam mill fur the manufacture of orange and lemon boxes at C'armel, where their mill was destroyed by fire on Sunday morning, June 19th.
