Larmon is likely to remain much longer in Nicaragua? I should like to go to that country, and help open it to civilization and niggers. I could get strong recommendations from the President's special friends in Pennsylvania for the place were the mission vacant,

It is now plainly before the Convention and the country that the South does demand an advanced step from the Democratic party.
