The Democratic state convention met on August 30 at Saratoga, New York Judge Gray was Chairman Ex-Governor Horatio Seymour in office 1853-1854 and 1863-1864 was nominated for Governor again The convention re-assembled on August 31, and re-nominated the incumbent Lieutenant Governor William Dorsheimer by acclamation Then Lester C Faulkner read a telegram received from the Committee that informed Seymour of his nomination, stating in a roundabout way that Seymour, who was already in bad health at home in Utica, New York, had accepted the nomination Robert Earl for Judge of the Court of Appeals, and Darius A Ogden for Canal Commissioner, were nominated by acclamation Robert H Anderson was nominated for Prison Inspector on the first ballot vote: Anderson 163, Benjamin S W Clark 146 After a few more speeches, the convention adjourned sine die in the afternoon In the evening, it was discovered that Seymour had not accepted the nomination, but on the contrary had sent a telegram to Chairman Gray before the opening of the second day's session declining the nomination This telegram was held back on the advice of Daniel Magone It was believed that the Tilden faction had the intention to have the State Committee select a candidate later4 Others believed that the hiding of Seymour's refusal from the convention was done with the intention to force him to stay on the ticket, help to get the Democratic ticket elected and then resign, like Martin Van Buren who resigned two months into his term to let his lieutenant Enos T Throop occupy the office5 The convention re-assembled on September 13 at Congress Hall in Saratoga, and nominated State Comptroller Lucius Robinson for Governor, whereupon John Kelly resigned from the ticket on which he had been placed as a presidential elector at-large6
