The ca se gains volume and adherents every day. '' My news from North Alabama - the democratie avnlunche región - is cheering. Niok Davis, one of our State Electora, and a gallant, talented young man - the best stamp speaker in the State, - Povey, Jones, Patten, Humphreys, Lindsay and Bradley are in tho field, firing hot shot into the Ynncey isuniouists. Bradley writes that the 'fires are brightly burning' up thcro, and North Alabama is 'all right.' Wore it not tor the Bell tiuket weshould beat 'Breek.' 20,000 votes in the State. " Wo have the best understanding with tho Büll and Everott people, and both partios are detormined that Alabama shall not give her voto for a sectional Yancey ticket.
