Tin: rebel Rrigadiers have captur ed Hancock at last. The nomination of Hancock, puts Pennsylvania in the front rank for the coming battle. (!i:nei:.vi. Gari'ieu) was as gal lant a soldier as Hancock, and is a tried and true statesman. With Tilden is buried the "fraud" cry which the Democracy has so in-du.-trioa-ly nursed fur the last four veavs. Tin: Democracy Las got "the loan on horseback'' they professed so much to fear, when General (Irant was a candidate for nomination. Tiik la.-t Democratic President was a Pennsylvanian and Good Iord ! what a record he left lehind. Hancock was brought up at the foot of this Gamaliel. Di i;i.v; the sitting of the Conven tion, the Cincinnati Kmjiurer an iioueed that English, "was a man without blemish and has five mil lions of dollars." That's w hat nom inated him. The men who opposed General (irant ln-cause he was a military man, are now asked to vote for Ilan eock, dimply because he is a noted soldier, who never framed or suj jiorted a Democratic measure. The Democrats have selected William II. English, the President of a National Rank, to carry Indiana, a Greenback state, with a Democrat ic Greenback candidate for Govern or. There is consistency for you ! ! Roth Wallace and Randall pledg ed Pennsylvania for Hancock and English. Did cither of those gen tlemen ever hear of the adage that advises sanguine eople not "to count their chickens liofore they are hatched ?" Thi s far no Republican leader has evinced any determination to opjw ise the election of General Gar field, or even to treat his nomina tion indifferently. It is to lie a long and a strong pull and a pull alto gether to put Garfield and Arthur through victoriously. The Cincinnati Convention abso lutely refused to hear Mr. Tilden's letters tf withdrawal. That was the unkindest cut of all, because therein the "old sage" portrayed himself as a martyr, and a patriot, and as the only man who could lead the Democracy to victor-. The Washington Xatiomd Jbpub-ii'-a.i says that in dropping Tilden the Democratic party loses its best organizer and its heaviest load, its worst record and its only issue, its strongest manager and its weakest man. its most unscrupulous barrel and its least inspiring candidate. Hox. Joii.x Cessna, Chairman of the Republican State Central Com mitte, informs the Harrishurg Tdr ri.h that after a partial though careful survey of the State he does not hesitate to prononee the pros jiect cheering, but at the same time expect every working Republican to do his duty ln-twecn this and t-lection day. We would respectfully suggest to the ninconi)KRips. in the Republi can ranks, who are keeping up the howl against Conkling and Came ron and the "machine jiohticians." That we w ill need all the votes wc can get during this campaign, and unl.-ss they de-dre the success of the Democratic candidates, it would 1-e well enough to ''go slowin that di rection.

He promised to say nothing hereafter of the bitter ness of the past. The union of the Democracy in New York was essen tial to success, and now he had no doubt that New York would vote for Hancock in November. Mr. Fel lows, representing the other side of New York political strife, in answer to loud calls, appeared on the stage j and sai.i that all dissensions in the New York Democracy were healed. As he ceased speaking John Kelly stood up beside him and the two, with grasped hands and faces cov ered with smiles, made the formal sign of reconciliation. The scene was heightened in iniprcssiveness whfn the band struck up "Auld Lang Syne," and was supported by the ponderous tones of the great organ. THE PLATFORM. Mr. Watterson, Chairman of the Committee on Resolutions, was rec ognized by the chair, and after order was restored proceeded to read the j platform, as follows : The Democracy of the United i States, in convention assembled de- . i ' !..!.,. First. We pledge ourselves anew- to t10 constitutional doctrines and traditions of the Democratic; partv as illustrated bv the teachings and'ex- imp!; of a long line of Democratic statesmen and patriots, and embod ied in the libit form of the l:ist X:i- tional Convention of the partv Second. Opix isition to cent Opix isition to centraliza tion, to that dangerous spirit of en croachment which tends to consoli date in one and thus to create, what ever the form of government and real disjiosition ; no sumptuary laws; separation of church and state for the good of each ; common schools fostered and protected. Third. Home rule; honest money, consisting of gold and silver, and pa jier convertible into coin on demand; the strict maintenance of the public faith, state and national, and a tariff for revenue only. Fourth. The subordination of thc military to the civil power, and a genuine and thorough reform in the civil service. Fifth. No discrimination in favor I of tr-irisi.oi't itii.o 11. ...s ..or.., 1 1, .., , - ........0 ....v., or nionoiKiiies. Sixth. The amendment of the I Rurlinganie treaty that no more Chi-j nese emigration, except for travel and education, and foreign commerce, herein carefully guarded. Seventh. Public money and pub lic, credit for public purj-oses solely and public land for actual settlers. Eighth. The Democratic party is the friend of labor and the laboring man, and pledges itself to protect him alike against the cormorants . and the commune. Ninth. Free ships a living chance for American commerce upon the seas and iqion me land. Tenth. The right to a free ballot is preservative of all rights, and must and shall bo maintained in every part of the United States. The ex isting administration is the represen tative of a conspiracy only, and . its claim of the right to surround the ballot boxes with troops and deputy marshals to intimidate and obstruct j the electors, and the unprecedented use ot the veto to maintain its cor rupt and despotic jniwer, insults peo ple and imperils their institutions. Vc execrate the course of this admin istration in making places in the civil service a reward for jiolitical crime, and demand a reform Jjy statute which shall make it forever impossi ble for a defeated candidate to, brilie his way to the seat of a usurper by billeting villains uon the people.
