EP The Cinciniiaü correspondent of the New York Commercial Advertittr givea thefollowing agreeable intimntion in regard to the state of fueling in that quarter : " The Chicago Convention is over, and Gen. McClellan is the nomineo, with George H. Pendleton for Vice President. Our peace democrats aiid ourrampantrepublicaos are equally puzzled; the tirst because their crowd, which looker! sojlarge before the Convention, is now entirely melted away ; the second, because many iikti, upon whom tiiey had strongly counted, are all at once turned domocrats. It shows Uf, again and again, that those wbo make the most owisa aru uot the roost numeious. The nominatioD setthes the point, so far as the democrats are concerned, that efforts are to be BiBcerly madeto reestablish the Union. That's al) the marrow I seo in the McCleilan movement,-and the election will turn on tho very issue, which of the two, Lfncoln or McOlellan, will be the most sincere and roost efficiënt workmen in reconstructing the tJoion. The mpression is now against Lincoln in both respecta, and, if it cod inues, will defeat hitp. SF" Gen. liobert Anderson, of Fort Sumpter celebrity, is a warm and entbusiastic friend oí Ge. McClellan for the Preaidencj.
