Democratic Party (U.S.)

Description

A Republican account of a Democratic political meeting. Describes Isaac Ingalls Stevens as a self-proclaimed Union man who nevertheless called Joseph Lane "a dear friend." (Stevens had managed the southern Democratic ticket - John C. Breckenridge for President and Joseph Lane for Vice President.) The writer, Antiochus, makes clear that in the wake of Breckinridge's defeat, there is little trust in Stevens.

Report says, "Jo Lane's followers are scarce here" and that Stevens got little support. Members voted for Columbia Lancaster, Union Democrat, to run for territorial delegate.
