The Surprising Rf suit at Cin
1 I cinnati.
f AVe will not affect to dissemble our
disappointment at the failure of the
Cincinnati Convention to nominate Mr.
Adams. In attempting to estimate the
situation and forecast probabilities, . it
never occurrred to us to measure Mr.
Adam's strensrth aesdnstMr. Greelev's.
i . f . . . " . - - . '
f only against that of benatorTrum
hnll, Judge Da vis, and Governor Brown.
in respect to these last-named compet
itors our judgment proves to have been
correct enough ; as they made no show
ai all in the Convention against Mr.
I Had Greeley been out of the canvass,.
Adams would have been triumphantly
nominated, as all his other competitors
wre weak on the first ballot and con
stantly lost, strength afterwards, till
they faded quite out of the canvass.
Aye thought, as everybody seemed to
think, that Mr. Greeley would merely
receive a complimentary vote from a
few States on the first one or two bal
lots, and then sink out of the contest.
The actual result causes intense aston-
ishment and disappointment, which we
priesume most -Democrats will share.
Ve supposed, and had what we thought
good reason for supposing, that the
Cincinnati Convention would nominate
it leading candidate with a view to
conciliate Democratic support. But the
Convention has in fact nominated the
mpst conspicuous and heated opponentof
1 he Democratic party that could be found
inUhe 'whole country. A convention
se on foot by " revenue reformers" has
nominated a not eel and zealous protec
tionist. This is a nomination which
wq did not expect, and which no Dem
ocrat would have recommended. .
It seenis proper, in our surprise and
disappointment, to recall attention to
th fact that the Cincinnati Convention
was not held, under Democratic-but un
der Republican auspices. It was enti
tled to follow its own judgment; and
Thf World, without anticipating or sus
pecting this extraordinary result,-has
constantly insisted that the Democratic
party should reserve its full liberty,
anJ await the jfetion of the Democratic
National Convention before ' commit
ting itself either for or against the Cin
cinnati nominees. If Mr. AdamShad
beejn nominated, we should not have
hesitated to advocate his indorsement
by the -.Democratic Convention. 'But
with so unexpected and surprising a
candidate as Mr. Greeley, we have ho
advice to offer. The Democratic Na
tional Committee will meet in this city,
next week, and issue the regular; call,
for the usual Convention. The sense
of the Democratic party will be author
itatively expressed bv that bodv. and
all members of the party will be bound
by its action. We think 'it expedient,
ort fall groundsr -that the Convention
should be held early, especially; after
this! extraordinary result at Cincinnati.
But the Convention cannot very well
be held, before the latter part or June,'
andj mean while there will be opportu
nity for a free expression of Democratic
opinion, under existing circumstances,
we Elo not aspire to guide Democratic
sentiment, but prefer to watch and fol
lowjit. We will frankly say, however,
thai Mr. Greeley is not our choice, and
that wg regret his nomination. If, as
seenis likely, the Democratic Coijven
tlonj should ignore the Cincinnati ticket
andmominate a, newione of its own, . we
shaB give that new ticket our zealous
support ' To many Democrats' 'this
course seems inevitable, but the strange
action at Cincinnati has .fallen on us so
suddenly, that we deem it prudent to
await , the spontaneous expression, of
Democratic opinion before proffering
counsel in circumstances so extraor
dinary. Our present impression is,' that
the IDemocratic Na'tional Convention
-Willi ignore Cincinnati entirely and
noixnate -a new ticket a course : in
wJiUh it may count upon the hearty
support, of The . World. WewiU ,be
guided by the National- Convention
and submit to its judgment, in aqy
everft ; but we do not, at present, see
any fsuch possibility in the future as
the indorsement of Mr. Greeley by the
Democratic sporty. We grudge him
nonejof the Ilepublican votes which his
personal' rjODularitv will draw away
frord Grant. . , r
Vih have no doubt that, inside the
Republican party. he . will make , a J
strong canvass. He is popular enough
to mke a great and formidable snjit in
the.Bepublican ranks ; and the assured
Republican schism gives Democrats a-
splertdid opportrihity,r such as we have 4
not before naa since tne outDreaK or
