Excerpt from Proceedings of the Massachusetts National Democratic Convention: And of the Mass Meeting for the Ratification of the Nominations of Breckinridge Lane; Held at the Tremont Temple, Boston, Sept, 12, 1860 The Convention of the National Democracy, Wednesday, held at Tremont Temple, must have astonished such as have affected to consider the supporters of Breckinridge and Lane, in this State, as a mere handful and of political account. It was in every respect a success, far exceeding the expectations of the friends, and confounding the predictions of its enemies. The Committee on Credentials reported that the Convention consisted of representations from two hundred and one towns, with ten hundred and thirty-three delegates. But the numbers were t the least gratifying feature of this demonstration. It was as fine a body as ever gathered into a political convention; a collection of the solid men of Massachusetts, who made a ble appearance; and their deliberations throughout were marked by courtesy, dignity and harmony. If the intelligence and patriotism of Massachusetts ever had a worthy representation, it was the Convention which gathered at the Tremont Temple. Among the delegates were hosts of good men and true, who have been through many a political campaign, and stood up manfully - through good and evil report - for Democratic measures; who ask but to see sound principles prevail and good government and who are worthy representatives of the commercial, the mechanic, manufacturing and agricultural interests of this State.
