The difference of opinion between
the leading democrats of the North,
which have heretofore divided them
into "War" and "Pesce Democrats,"
seems to be vanished. The New
York IForW (war) says : "The new
President to be nominated at Chica

be a man ready and willing to meet
any and every overture for peace a

tender an armistice suggesting a
National Convention of all the'

agrees to this saving : The peace

sentiment here stated. They are
willing to trust to the good sense and

sequel of an Armistice and National
