character of delegates held for years bythe Democracy of New-York There is already a large embracing prominent Democrats of the State many of whom are here merely as evince a lively interest In the action of the Convention There Is evidently unanimity of in respect to the policy to be pursued by the party and the expression IB generally In favor of a vigorous and earnest prosecution of the war against any ration of the States and In favor of holding forth to the rebel States the offer of peace at any moment they will return to allegiance The resolutions will embody these propositions united with a con- of the State policy of the Republican Party and In favor of a reconstruction of the net on a baits calculated to secure public confidence In the Administration The threadbare annual quarrel between Mozart and Tammany excites some interest Nearly the whole of both delegations arc on hand and are nest in pressing their claims although in the absence of WOOD and other ter partisans and the On to Richmond policy of TUCKER and the fight lacks much of its ancient personality and bitterness It Is said that the Tammany delegates threaten to repudiate the Convention as an party if they are not ad- mitted alone and declared to be regular and unite with the Republicans next week in nominations On the oilier hand there Is a report that a bargain Is on hand between WOOD and the Republicans by DICKINSON and two nominees of WOOD are to be 1 on the Republican ticket and Mozart Is to These of course arc rumors started by those In the Interest of the different factions The probability Is that Tammany will be admitted and Mozart entirely rejected as Irregular and opposed to the war Many of the country delegates are against Mozart on this ground while ihc Soft politicians regard this as a favorublc time for a final of tho York quarrel and a recognition of their old friends of Tammany There is However a not Insignificant force for the admission of both sets pf delegates
