The State Democratic Contention, which meets to-morrow in Nashville, will have little trouble, we presume, in nominating a candidate for Governor. Gen. John C. Brown has been accepted Ly the press nearly all over the State, and by tlfe masses of the people. This is one instance in which the office seeks the man more than the man geeks the office. Gen. Brown is acceptable to all classes. He was a eucceBsfuI lawyer before the war, a brave and distinguished Confederate general during the war, and more recently was President of the State Constitutional Convention: In every position of trust which he has yet filled he has displayed talent, integrity, and fine executive abilities. He is a proper man for Chief Executive of the State, and when once nominated his election is a foregone conclusion. When elected and inducted into office he will command the respect and confidence of the peo ple, regardless of party lines or even " previous condition," as the Radicals would say. The Convention, however, has a graver and more delicate duty to perform than to nominnte Gen. Brown for Governor. The occasion and the r-nnditinn of State and national politics suggest the adoption of a party platform. Having disposed of the Radical party in the State and restored the judiciary and such old landmarks of liberty as were not entirely swept away during the late po litical deluge, it behooves us to unite with the only national party opposed to the maladministration in power, and assist in liberating other Suites yet under the op pressor's heel. A judicious platform, adopted by tho Tennessee Democracy, will strengthen our friends elsewhere. We are opposed to compromising any principle, and opposed, also, to any ex treme tenets of political faith which would hamper or embarrass the National Democratic party in the States where its success is doubtful. It matters nothing to ui, in a local sense, what the party is called. Call it the Whig, the Pacific or the Atlantic party; call it the old line, the new line or the blue line party so as we remain united in Tennessee, we can defeat the Radicals two or three to one, and guarantee to our people an honest administration of public affairs. But it happened when the war closed that there was a Democratic party in the North, and it has since gained several important advantages. It happened that we soon began to co-operate with that party and to call ourselves Demo crats; not, however, in an ante-war sense, but in the sense opposed to a reckless party in possession, temporarily, 1 of the Government. We sent delegates to the New York Democratic Conven tion that nominated Seymour, we had Democratic ' clubs and banners and meetings all over the State, and there was no stickling ubont the name. Had the Northern party been styled the Whig party we would have all taken up the name as readily as Democratic, and to day might have all been called Whigs. If it will injure the Radical part.y or thrust them sooner from power, we wOuld be ready to change the' name, even 11 this late day. But the change cannot be made without dividing our ranks and weakening our forces in the field. Hence, we are in favor of co-operating with the National Democratic party, and adopting, with slight modifi cations, the suggestions of the National Executive Committee at Washington. Heuce, without adducing any more ar guments in this connection, we shall re pret it if the Nashville Convention shirks the issue of the hour by adopting any time-serving name for the party short of Democratic. 1 hat is the ban ner which may triumph over the Kudical party. No other name will win. Much more depends on the action of the con vention than is geuerully supposed. Tennes.-t-c is the first and only recon structed State which has thrown off the shuttles of Radicalism. If we aJopt any extremes of language or action, the effect will be damaging to those we should and would assist in other States. If we abanJi.n the party shibboleth, we will be attempting to change frunt in the presence of the enemy, and acknowl rltt to the:n that we are ashamed to be l.n.g to the party now marshaling to de feat the Grant party in the next Presi dential election. We await the action of the convention, therefore, with no common interest. UNDER WHICH BAlfNEB 1 It i amuring to read in the Nai-hville Banner that its candidates triumphed in the late judicial election. The Banner ind rei t!y opposed the convention which nominated tho successful candidatei; and the Banner's party, if. it hj oije, was utterly ignored. If tlie Uauser can reap any glory by going back ofor that field, it certainly is easy to! satisfy, tff it can bring home ally sheaves,' -St has traded for them since the convention, or by some means acquired thu result ..of other people's mbor.'' The Banner fcruni bled before the convention, and growled the next day. It is sore-footed, weak in its political knees, and follows the great Democratic" banner" like "rctef after the Muster afar, off. But when a victory is gnined U comes to tfie front, and i as , noisy as any. crowing fowl in all . the barn-yard. And even now, that same paper is rnis ini a tempest in a teapot about the reso lutions to be adopted by the Gubernato rial Convention to-morrow. 1 he lianner is afraid of the name Democratic more than of any platform or enunciation of principles likely to be nmdn by Demo crats. It represents a suiull cluss of the Old-Line Whigs in the Slate who cannot ' forget the prejudices of 1S40.. The in-j fluence of the Banner in the cu mention may not bo perceptible, yet as we arej ilwava readv to miiko innocent ''conces sions for the sake of peace "and unity, we trust the convention will tack on to the platform adopted a hard-cider log cabin plunk, just wide enough to hold; the Banner party, and no more. DRAGGED FROM OBSCURITY TO A WORSE FATE. The Republicans held a State Conven tion at Saratoga last Wednesday, tho "th inst. to nominate- a candidate for Gov ernor. Conkling and Fenton and Horace Greeley were prominent candidates, and each one possesses some native; ability and force of character. After a fabu lous amount of wire-working, threats and promises and corruption and treach ery to each other, they nominated a man named Stewart L. Woodford, of Brook lyn, who was scarcely ever heard of be fore. Of coarse -it makes no difference to the Republican party whether he has any sense or not, as his election , is about as . probable ,"as- - the restoration of the French Empire under Napoleon. The World gives a graphic account of the convention, and a readable description of the jll-starred Woodford. He was presiding'officir of the State Senate, which is his whole po litical experience. He is" a lawyar of about the same order that' lie" was' a' gen eral; that is, nobody ever heard of his having s case to try in the courts. Some months ago,' he was made elua of the Brooklyn Union, but he speedily broke down, and retired from" a position for which he was incompetent. ; 'A candi date for Governor, he will play a role worthy of his illustrious career as a gen eral, lawyer, and editor. As he was a general without achievements, a lawyer without cases, and an editor without vigor, so he is a candidate for Governor without experience or qualifications, and will have the mere name of running without any effective support. ATTORNEY GENERAL AND REPORTER OF THE SUPREME C0TJBI. . Colonel J. B. Heiskell, of Memphis, was elected this morning by the Supreme Court of Tennessee, Attorney General and Reporter. We understand there were several aspirants for this position, all of whom, perhaps, are well qualified. But the selection made cannot fail to meet a hearty approval by the bar throughout the State. The position is one of great importance and re sponsibility. The incumbent should not only be qualified to report the records correctly, but should possess experience, discrimination and fine pow ers of analysis. In these respects Col. Heiskell has few superiors in the State. He is a hard-working, pains-taking law yer, and even metaphysical; has a clear mind, well-balanced and well-trained. The dispatch alluded to elsewhere brought the first intimation tt us that Col. Heiskell was seeking or willing to accept the place. We wish him contin ued honor and success in the place he has accepted. Knnday In llruearla. A correspondent of the New York Times, writing from the above place, gives the following as the manner in which Sunday is spent iu Brussels: As I arrived in Brussels early on Sun day morning, with all this fresh on my, mind, I naturally looked around to see bow Sunday was observed in the Belgic capital. First, there was a great ringing of bells in many churches, beginning at 6 o'clock in the morning, and a series of services lasting until noon, ana resaiaea in the evening. At r a m. a lo uid a large church full, grand high mass, with magnificent music, the organ reinforced with violins, cornet-a-piston, etc., and very good, though fHtl.er loud, singing. On the business streets Dearly every shop was opened many more than at Paris. In the afternoon the long circle of the boulevards was full of people, and all , the streets swarmed with them. Men, women and children were all abroad in the sunshine. Thousands sat at tables on the sidewalks in front of the cafes, drinking beer, most of which is soar enough to make a pig squal. There is good beer from Bavaria, but I could not swallow the rlcroish. un an un finished avenue near the southern rail way station was a fair in full operation. Twenty noisy bands were playing a dozen or more sham circuses were in full blast, with hundreds of wooden horses, on which the whole population was mounted, going round with immense velocity. There were canvas theaters, circuses, shows of performing dogs, toys, and gingerbread enough for a kingdom, mountebanks in dingy, old broidered velvet rolies and brass helmets, with drums and hand-organs to collect around them; twenty photographic eataldiaa ments offering correct portraits for a dime; an armless Dutchman, doing everj'thing with his toes; three fat ladies, one of whom, a fair voung creature from Mexico, was described as weighing precisely "4!jJ kilcramsi " this may mean either aW pounds or lOOfl, as yon read it either way will do. A giant lights bis cigar at the street lamps; a young lady is spotted all over, like a tig'ir, they say, but mean leopard. Through this fare, which covers many acres, a vast crowd circnlated all Sunday afternoon and evening. There is an election to-duy, warmly contested, and processions singing patriot songs went tlirougn tne streets ounnay nifiii, sing ing, in tbeir strong Belgian fashion, ir the chorus. The whnle population i well sprinkled with .oljicrs, evi dently militia, for the tlile of the army is citner at rranKiorr or on tne Eastern frontiers. 1 cauuot say much for a Belgian Sabbath, and sny American friends assured me it was the same every where on the Continent, among both Protestant and Catholic. I he rttiy dif ference seems to be tliat the Catholics generally go to church;- the others gen erally do not. But I am boand to say that in all this crowded, ont-door, noisy SuB'iay I did not see the least sign of drunkenness or disorder. I have veon 1 more drunkenness, brawling and tiiAting in one street in London on a .Sunday night than coald have been found, I am certain, in all Brussels.

The Royal Family of England is suffi ciently represented by its connections in the present war. There are several blood relations of the Queen iu the field on the German side, of course.
