When the result of our glorious vic
tory in the Presidential contest became
known, it waa decided that the Union
people of St Clalrsville and vicinity
should have a meeting to rejoice over
the triumph, and in the last Chroiucli
it was announced that a meeting of that
kind would be held on Friday night
Every body on onr side feeling good
over the result, the mere announce
ment was sufficient to call out pretty
much the whole of the Union people
of the town and neighborhood, and at
an early hour the ladies crowded to the
Court House the place always here
tofore occupied by all parties for pur
poses of this kind and were aston
ished to find the front door barred
against them ; but, thinking they were
early, and that the house might not yet
be open, they went to the back door,
which they found open', and entered.
They soon found after they entered,
from the character of the crowd pres
ent and remarks made by some of the
county officials, that there was a pre
meditated purpose on the part of those
having possession of the Couri House
to prevent its occupancy for the pur
rose of holding the meeting. The
House, however, up, prin
cipally with ladies, who fiad a right to
presume that no one would attempt to
exclude them from the house, or offer
any insult to them. But in this they
were mistaken, for an employe of the
Clerk of the Court took occasion quite
frequently to say, " There is too much
crinoline in here," "There will be
no meeting held here to-night," and
other similar expressions.
About the time the house was pretty
well filled, it was noised about that
Judtre Okst had ordered .'that there
should be no meetings held in the Court
House during the term. One of the
officials so informed us, and, having
previously heard that the Clerk of the
Court had so declared, we asked Judge
Cowbn to go with ns to Judge Okkt's
room, and learn whether he had made
such order or not Judgo Cowtn as
sented, and we called on Judge Okst;
who informed us that he had not been
consulted that he had made no order
on the subject that he had no control
of the Court House, except while in
sitting on the bench and that the
Court House was under the control
the Sheriff of the county, iiv the ab
sence of the Commissioners. The
Sheriff was present during the inter
view, and said he had no objection
our using the Court House, so far
he was concerned, that he had always
allowed us to use it heretofore,
that if any of the officers of the Court
wished to use the house he would
turn them out to accommodate
We then returned to the Court House,
and Judcre Cowbn went up on
stand and asked the Clerk of the Court
and Justices who were opening
poll-books of the October election
they would please suspend their count
ing for a few moments, until the ques
tion whether we were to have the
of the Court House was decided.
Clerk of the Court threw himself
in his chair, and his feet up on the
in front of him, and in a very pompous
manner, said: "We will hear what
Judge has to say. " Judge Cowbn
that he had nothing to say
til he knew whether we were to

elapsed without anything having
said, when we remarked that it appear

should not have it, but that J udge

enjoyed themselves as well as the cold
ness of the night would permit.
After we withdrew from the Court
House, the Copperheads held a meet
ing in it, and Jim Charletworth made
a speech to them, in which, we are told,
he declared that the object of the Union
men was to destroy the poll-books and
prevent the election of their Sheriff
and Auditor. He also said that it was
all wrong for them to submit to such
abuse as "Bill Carman" and other
speakers had been in the habit of heap
ing on them, and he then thanked the
Democrats present for the disposition
they had manifested to' sustain hint. ,
The excuse made for holding the
house was that they wanted to open
the poll-books, and needed it for that
rtiirnose. 1 We proposed to wait until
r k .
"There will be no meeting here to
night " And yet he could suspend the
opening of the poll-books, or. making
out the return,' to make a speech to the
mob he had gathered around him.
' This excuse is a miserable subter
fuge, behind which these beauties hope
to screen themselves from the contempt
their conduct richly merits, and which
we are pleased to learn it is receiving
from the more respectable or tlieir own
party. What right has Jim Charlee-f,
.nnrA tn tfilie these Doll-books out o
his office nntil they are opened and th
return made out ? The law provides
that the Clerk of the Court, with the
assistance of two Justices of the Peact,
shall proceed to open the teveral returns
which ihall have been made to hie offite.
Open them where? Clearly in liis
office, to which they have been return
ed. If he has the discretion to open
them in the Court House, he has the
discretion to open them in the John
son House, or at the Gazette office.
Besides, it has been the' custom, lever
since we knew anything about thejmat
ter, to open these poll-books ii the
Clerk's office until he himself sclfcftif
ferent example this fall.
We have made this plain and some
what lengthy statement of this matter,
and the people of the county will have
no difficulty in trettiujr at and under
standing fully the object and purpose
of those who have been the principal
actors in it As a dirty, contemptible
political act, It exceeds in meanness
anything that has ever come under our
observation ; and if endorsed and sus
tained by the leaders of the Democratic
party, cannot fail to disgust the respect
able portion of the party, and in any
event must result In securing for those
officials of that party who are respon

actions deserve. . j

secrecy, and at about three o'olock in the
morning ot Friday, Uotober 7, tbe cables
were slipped, ana the Waohneett bore down
npoe the Rebel vessel under full bead ef
steam. 'Belittle expectation was thereof
suoh a proceeding, that ene-half tneeflloeri
and crew ef the Florida, seventy in number,
and including Uaptain K orris, were carousing
en shore, and the remainder, having just
relumed from a similar abseaoo, were in ae
condition to repel an assault The Florida's
effioer of the deck supposed the collision
whioh he law to be imminent to be merely
accidental, and oned out, "leu will run
into us it yen don't look out." The design
of Cant. Collins waa simply to strike tne
Florida arhidships with full steam on, crush
in her side, and send her at once to the bot
tom bevond the nosstbility of causing fur
ther trouble to any one. The Waohusett
however did not strike her adversary fairly,
but hit her in the stern, carrying sway the
miszen mast and mein yard. The Florida
was not seriously Injured by the collision,
but the broken spar fell across the awning
over ber hatchway in Such a manner as to
Erevent her crow from getting on deck from
elow. The recoil whioh followed the shock
carried the Waohusett back several vards.
In the confusion which ensued several pistol
shots were fired from both vessels, chiefly
at random, and entirely without effect.
Two of the guns of the Waohusett were also
discharged by accident,; according to one
report, and, as another Version has it. by
order of ono of the Union lieutenants. . The
shots did not strike the Florida.
Capt Collins ef the Waohusett, immedi
atley thundered out a demand to the Rebel
cralt; "Surrender, or I will blow you out of
the water." The lieutenant in charge of
the Florida maybe excused for considerable
aimtstinicnt, but had still pi eence of mind
to reply, "Under the olrcumstances 1
surrender." Without the delay of an
instant dozens'of gallant tars boarded the
prise and made fast a hawser connecting her
with their own vessel, and the Waohusett
turned her course seaward, moving at the
top of her speed aad towing the Florida in
her wake. .
The fleet of Brasilian vessels, which
entirely surrounded the little space of water
on which the brief battle had beeo fought,
was so .situated that tbe two American
steamers were obliged to pass under tbe
stern of the Isrgost in order to penetrate
their line. The Wachusett was challenged,
but did not deign a word of reply, and the
Florida, when hailed and commanded to
halt a moment after, renlied that a pause
was impossible, as she was towed by the ves
sel in trout, lhe Brazilians soon guessed
the state of affairs, and in another moment
er two the heavy guns of the fort, under the
very muzzles et which tbe capture had been
made, openod fire on the Wachusett, as she
disappeared in the morning darkness. Three
hots were fired after her, all r assing harm
lessly far abeve her pennant, and striking
the water beyond.
To the reader it seems that all this must
have taken a considerable time hot the
testimony of a careful officer on the Wa
chusett, corroborated by the surgeoa of the
Florida, assures us that from the time the
Wachusett first slipped her cable and steam
ed upon tbe Rebel cruiser to the moment
when the echoes ef the last gun from the
Brasilian fortress had died away, was only
twenty minutes by the watch. Certainly
no cage of history can show a more daring
achievement, or one executed with more
briliant rapidity er more complete success,
The Brazilian naval commander in Bahia
harbor acted with all the promptness which
eould have been expected, and in a few mo
ments the dawn of day disclosed two vessels
of the Brazilian fleet doing their utmost to
pursue and overhaul the Wachusett and her
prize. They were a heavy sloop-of-warand
a small armed steamer, neither of them any
matoh in noint ef HDeed for the handiwork
of New England merchants, and soon gavo
up the chase as the Union and Rebel steam
ers disappeared below the borizon.
Capt, Collins soon ordered the ships to
heave to and examined his Drizo. He found
that neither vessel was materially damaged
by the collision, and that there had been
no injury to life or limb trom the contused
firing which followed it. Twelve officers
and fifty eight men of the Florida's orew
were oaDtured. and all her stores, papers
reoords, to. , were found undisturbed in tbe
cabin. Tho two vessels soon steamed for
St. Thomas, arriving there on the2!)th ult
and finding the Kearsarge already in Port.
It waa intended to keep the matter at Bahia
a secret at St. Thomas, but was accidentally
revealed by a seaman of the Wachusett to
one of the crew of the Kearsarge, and some
hints of it got wind in the town, causing
great excitement there, lhe ilonda re
