THE CHARLESTON CONVENTION. – Some of the regular democratic organs are questioning Judge Douglas, Chevalier Forney and their anti-Lecompton “popular sovereignty” newspapers, whether they do or do not intend to abide by the nomination and the platform of the Charleston Convention? All such questions, we presume, will be answered in the Convention, and not before. We suspect, too, that the upshot of the Convention will be the final dispersion of the democracy, and two or three scrub tickets; for it is manifest that the fixed policy of every prominent clique of the party jugglers for the succession is rule or ruin.
