At a mass meeting in Tammany Hall, New York Democrats unite behind Stephen Douglas

New York Democrats met in a mass gathering at Tammany Hall to endorse overwhelmingly Stephen Douglas as the single Democratic presidential candidate.  Speaker after speaker spoke of the importance of rejecting Breckinridge and the south in favor of Union.  The meeting then adjourned to Stephen Douglas's hotel on Fifth Avenue to shout their support and hear him speak briefly from the hotel balcony.
