THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY GONE TO SMASH. – The work is done. The irrepressible conflict has rent the Democratic party asunder, and it has ceased to exist as a national organization. All the curses bestowed so lavishly by the Democratic orators and presses upon the Republican party for the last four years, for what they were pleased to term its sectionalism, have come home to them to roost. – Chicago Democrat, of yesterday.
