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.

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.

J. 11. Gilbreth. 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
