The Fremont Convention Again.
The proposed Convention of tnose in fa"
vor of the nomination of John C. Fre
mont to run nt an independent candidate,
hat so&rcely received a word of approba
tion from TJnion sources, even from those
opposed to Mr. Lincoln.
The only journals that have favored the
project have been copperhead journals
that are anxious to effect ft split in the
TJnion party. The very faot thai they are
patting it, is one of the etiongest reasons
why it should be deprecated by all TJnion
The New Nation, which BDUTS on the
movement, Bays it is understood that none
who are favorable to the re-nomination of
Mr. Lincoln need attend. The call is
signed by a number of individuals, about
fiftv in number, representing different
States. Most of them are men whose names
have never before been neara or, ana wn
assume to speak in behal offthepeople.
The Convention is called at the instance
of the "People'! Committee," ft mythical
body existing somewhere in the Eastern
eities, but of whioh the dear people, for
whom it assumes to aot, know nothing

African monarch, it sits wrapped in the
solitude of an over-awing and impenetra-

Committee is mythical. Baltimore it
seems, does not have the essential condi
tions of a truly National Convention, for
the reason that it is too near the political
and commercial foci of the country, and.
will not therefore represent th people.
Tin politicians will be present at Balti
more. But will the politicians be wanting
in Cleveland? The Convention at Balti
more will be packed, and therefore, say we
politicians,let us pack another atCleveland.
The Convention at Baltimore is as open to
ihfl friends of Fremont as to anybody else.
If the people about whom the New Nation
is eternally pr ting as being so dissatis
fied with Mr. Lincoln, want Fremont, they
are permitted to send their delegates to
Baltimore and nominate him. The rpirit
exhibited by these bolters indioates very
c' early that they think the interests
one man more important than the nation's
They are ready to bring a third candidate
into the field, however disastrous the con
sequences to a great cause may be, if they
can only gratify a personal feeling.
It is also claimed by the signers of the
call for a Convention in Cleveland that the
call to the Convention -it Baltimore is not
sufficiently liberal. This is to us ft matter
of great surprise. It is addressed to "all
qualified voters who desire the uncondi
tional maintenance of the Union, tne su
premacy of the Constitution, and the com
plete suppression of the existing tebellion,
with the cause thereof, by vigorous war,
and all apt and efficient means."

Wednesday, May 11-8 A. n. J
At 1J o'oloek yesterday, the most des
porate of all the battles yet fought was
oommenoed. It continued up to nearly 8
o'clock. In dogged stubbornness, water
loo and Solferino pale before the terrifio
onslaught of Tuesday afternoon on the
banks of the Po. Two divisions of Born
side's Corps held the right, the 6th and 6th
Corps the center, and the 2d Corps the left.
Our line stretched six miles on tbe north
east bank of the Po, the rebels occupying
the south-west bank and the village of
At 2 our artillery gained a good range,
and poured Bhot and shell, gape and can

upon our infantry lines. The enemy used

The im. reesion prevailed at headquar
ters during the fore part of the day that
Ewell'e corps had left for Bichmond on
Monday. All prisoners taken were Irom
Longstreet's and Hill's oorps, but before
yesterday's battle dosed, Ewell returned.
If he had left, as is probable, and Lee's en
tire army aod our whole foroe were pitted
for three hours at a hand-to-hand struggle
niihoal a parallel in history.
GeneralB Grant and Meade were in the
saddle constantly personally directing
movements. It was arranged that the en
tire 9ih corps charge tbe enemv'a right
flunk, but pending the severest onslaught
made by Lee just before dark, it was dis
covered that he had advanced around our
right flank and was moving down in dense
oolumtit for a last and after dark struggle
to break through our lines and dash upon
our supply trains, tben known to be pack
ed on the plank road to Fredericksburg.
This changed General Burns'de's pur
pose, and he securely held his ground and
threatened the enemy's extreme Tight,
while the 6th oorps charged his right cen
ter, and (at 7 o'clock) drove him from his
first line of rifle pits, capturing five guns
and between two and three thousand pris
oners. The quick eyes of our chieftains, howev
er, saw the rebel maneuver. Our men
were faced about, our trams all moved
the rear, new positions instantly secured
for our artillery, and tbe enemy's expect
ed coming patiently awaited during
the long hours of last night. No demon
strations were made, however, and except
the occasional shouts of pickets, all was
quiet up to 8 o'oloek to-day, when I left.
It was believed that the enemy had suf
fered so severely that he could not in
orippled condition avail himself of the d
advantage he bad gained. By oth
ers it was supposed he had attempted an
other flight, but as his communication with
Richmond is believed to have been severed
