I ' The Situation.
! The nomination . of - Greyly and
. Brown ha divided the Democracy in
twain. Whether the Baltimore dni veti
tion ndo:iies the Cincinnati nominees,
or nominates a straight ticket, it is the
same: the party is hopelessly divided,
j A great many Democratsare of opinion
that the Deniacratic party is compelled
to support the Cincinnati nominees, or
break plighted faith. Other Democrats
iire of opinion that Greeley and Brown
will divide the Republicans to an ex
tent suliicient to enable the Democrats
to elect a straight ticket. Democrats
who re f this opinion are in favor of
running a straight ticket. It makes no
dift'eieuoe what action the-Baltimore
Convention takes, the Democracy are
divided into two factions, of nearly
equal strength. Such men as John 8.
Mosby,. Henry A. Wise, Benj. Ewell,
of Virginia, A. II. Stephens, of Georgia,
and Vorhees and Kerr, of Indiana,
will not support Mr. Greeley under any
circumstances. On the other hand,
Mr. Greeley will undoubtedly retire
from the canvass and support the regu
lar Republican nominee if the Demo
crats nominate a straight ticket at 'Bal
timore. In either event, the defeat of
th!. Democracy is assured; and if Mr.
hu k j 4-2ai at Tnimnrr. thn
Democratic party as a National orgnni-
zation, will break into a thousand
; pieces. The peace of the whole country
is endangered by the standing organi
zation of the Democratic party ; if the
action of the Cincinnati Convention
brings about the dissolution of the
Democratic party, the American peo
ple will be under great and lasting ob
ligations to that Convention.
Mr. Greeley has fail.ed to divide the
Itepnblican party. It was thought tha
he would draw enough votes from
Republican party to secure his elect
if endorsed at Baltimore. Such is
"the case. The party is a unit in
