    California for Douglas.

    The only non-slaveholding State that the seceders have dared to claim as sure to go for the Breckinridge and Lane Disunion ticket, is California. The reason they have ventured the impudence to make even this claim is that California is so far off that it is thought the people don’t know the claim is false. There has never from the start been the least doubt about this Pacific State. At the last general election there, the friends of Douglas succeeded. The men who control the politics there are Douglas men; and if they were not, the people are with the Illinois statesman. We have intelligence, which we deem to be fully reliable, from California, which gives that State to Douglas and Johnson by a large majority over all opposition. And Douglas will carry the other Pacific State, Oregon. Douglas will be elected!
