In America there is a division in the Republican camp,

and we regret to say that Mr. Chase has been announced as a candidate for the next Presidency, Senator Pomeroy, of Kansas, bringing him forward in a laboured address. Mr. Chase is an able financier, and for anything we know may be as shrewd in general politics as he is in finance. But Mr. Lincoln has gained steadily for three years on the confidence of America and the good opinion of Europe, and it would be gratuitous rashness to change ; for even the enormous advantage of getting rid of Mr. Seward would not compensate for a needless electoral crisis, and the loss of a steady helmsman in whom every one has at last learnt to trust.
