It supports and sustains a candidate for office on account of his supposed ability "to promote theintere-tsand well-being of the entire democratic jutrty," and it oppose ami denounces him tho moment it thinks that ho fails to "strengthen ami harmonize tho whole parly." Just now tho "great democratic party" in N. York, are at loggerheads alwut a candidate for (Jovernor tho Ilirn-hurners upholding (Joy. Wright, and tho Old-hunkers opposing his re nomination.
