made. were well attended. and W'ththc excep

C'dpvi ntioii, -n'owing out ol the incongruity i t
some small portion of the imteritl of whkh
it w. s compos: d, we believe passed oil to the
ait!--faction of the participant:-.
Our co'empentry ol' the Courier was of
course there with his no-party party views lor
the piirjose of supporting the Administra
tion by patriotically aiding ir the distribution
of county offices, and was very much incensed
at the idea that his patriotism was expected to
be extended a little furihci -and tie to endorse
the resolutions and nominations of the Mont
pelier Convention. Tiiat was no part of his
programme, and he entered his solemn protest,
lie only proposed to aid in a vigorous pros
ecution of the war" in Rutland county, and

Convention was otherwise harmonious.
It will be seen by reference to the report
of proe
..ecdings in another column that both
Conve ntions acted in harmony and with
, xccpt.-i. ot three changes, nominated the j
tirk-t ot last year, thus evincing their confi-
, ic ice in their na-f oflieers. M-. Fish of Ira !
ai.inaiiimiusly withdrew his name in order
to irake room lor a Democrat upon the Sen
atorial ticket, and the name of John .Jackson
Esc(,o!' I'.randon was placed thereon, a (it
and becoming nomination. We doubt l ot
Lis noble and eenerou-; act on the part of
.Mi. Fish will be long remembered by
freemen of Rutland County. .Mr. Jackson
is a live Democrat but a firm supporter ol the
Union and en'ioi:es the nominations and res
olutions of the State Convention as the most
feasible way of sustaining the Union, and his
nomination, wo think, will be satisfactory to
The chauge ia the olije of Judge of Pro

made upon the principle ot ''rotation," and
we are not positive but that it was in accord

The nomination of Mr. Field as Sheriff,
without disparagement to the other candi
dates, we believe is acceptable to all. Mr.
Field will bring into the office in addition to
his other qualifications, a large amount of
experience, having for some time served as
Deputy under Mr. Edgerton the present pop
ular incumbent.
But we Lave no room to elaborate A strong
union feeling seemed to pervade both Con
ventions, and patriotic remarks were made
by many persons present.
Too much credit cannot be given to those
Democrats who so nobly sunk party prefer
ences and went honestly into this Convention
for union for the purpose of the Union, and
we trust they will have no cause to regret
that they have done so generous and patriotic
an act, or feel that by so doing they have
compromised any portion of their political
I'i.oyd as A Jockky. The Louisville
