The bkpg. has a lengthy editorial which begins: "The nomination of General McClellan by the Democratick Convention at Chicago uniting upon him both the Peace and the War sections of that party, opens quite a new act of the grand drama which occupies the stage of this continent. The very first thing which is now to be determined is whether Lincoln n& Seward...will stand quietly by & suffer the power to be wrested from their hands by an ordinary Presidential election...Their mission is not yet accomplished..." with much more.
Also on the bkpg: "Effects of the Confederate Privateers on Yankee Commerce" and "Latest News From the North--The Chicago Convention--Exciting Proceedings--McClellan for President & Pendleton for Vice President--The Platform" with much on this.
