Two Democratic Parties
(Column 4)
Summary: Article describes the split between Buchanan and Packer forces in the Pennsylvania Democracy, with great glee.
(Names in announcement: , )
Full Text of Article:

We have now two Democratic parties in Pennsylvania- one represented by Buchanan and his office-holders, and the other by Packer and the disaffected anti-Lecomptonites. A fierce intestine war is inevitable between the rival factions. The repudiation of Gov. Packer by the Convention at Harrisburg, and the endorsement of that act by the Washington Union, under the direct inspiration of the President, with a reflection upon his "personal and political integrity," show the bitterness and depth of the hostility. The call for a new Convention by the anti-Lecomption wing of the party, to meet in Harrisburg on the 13th inst, furnishes abundant evidence that no compromise is possible. This is a repetition of the Van Buren game of 1841 in a more intensified form, and must ensure Pennsylvania to the Opposition beyond any reasonable contingency, if that was not a fixed fact before. We like the "war to the knife" spirit manifested by Col. Forney. There is no weakness in his knees. Our neighbor of the Sentinel, too, has considerable pluck. Go in, gentlemen, we will hold your hats! -- Harrisburg Telegraph.
