Mr IIenry B. StANTOX, who was in attondance upou the ltoehester Convention as a correspondent of the Sun, telegraphed to that paper as follows, in reforenee to tho delegation seleoted to represent New York Stato at Baltimoro: Tin; delegation will earofully watih tho drift of ilic tidé and act aocordingly, at Baltiraore. I think I ara closo to the mark whon I say that if tho Liberal Republicana want the delegation to take tho initiative at Baltimore in favor of Dr. y, they muit swell the liberal üKiv.Miioatto formidable dimensions. The Deiflocrats who have ■lected to represent tlr's Stute in the National ConTention have no inteiition of taking stock in a losing oreven a doubtful entorpriso. [f they !tr going to be 'naaten they preLer defeat ander their own il-ip'. 1 know ' the temper of the New York Demoorsoy as exhibited by its lc uden? here, and I do not miajudge wkn I Bay thut they aro wüling to take Greeley and lïrowii, if it appeaiB to thera that in that way, - and ii) that way alone, they eau 1 throw Grant, they are wholly disinclined ' to try any doubtful experimenta in that rlireetion. Therefore lot Dr. Greeley and his friends govorn themselves accordingly and make a satisfactory exhibit ot their strongth if thfiy want the hulp of the New York delegation at the Demosratic National Conrention. f
