jpcirty men, who managed to get the only
tiro county offices of any account, might
1Hive spared us. Of course all such reso
lutions will have just so much binding
obligation on the contcience of those pres­
as they choose to render to the dicta
tion of a few men who went into theCon
irention determined simply to rule or
ruin.
Thete was another unauthorised raore
inent of the remnant of the Convention,
ibowever, which is liable to lead to very
ttrious consequence* and to promote the
Tery object which the honest supporters
of the Government and the war united to
PRevent.
Neal at the same time opposed, both by
his speeches and his votes. It would
scarcely be possible for the Union Con
gressional Convention, with the entire list
of Ilepublic&us in the State before them,
to find a more capable and trustworthy ad
vocate of the war measures of the Admin
istration and of the interests of the Union
than James F. Wilson. Then why divide
the friends of the Union and the support
ers of the war by nominating some other
Republican?
Nor is there any better, nor so good
grounds, for nominating a Democrat. The
nomination is to fill the unexpired term of
ft Republican member in a Republican
district, and the nomination of a Demo
crat
to
1
the lHiMolnei Valley, North
MUionrl. and Western Illinois.

We learn that after a large portion of
the delegates had left the Convention at
Charleston, on Monday night, several res
olutions were passed in violation of the
Wider-standing and previous action of the
Convention. These matters are of little
consequence in themselves, but are an in
dication of bad faith, which the
uno
We refer to the appointment of
delegate# to the Congressional Conven
tion, a ma tier not referred to in the call,
aor alluded to during all the discussions
of the dny. The object of the Congres
sional Convention is put a third candi
date for Congress in the field in this Dis
trict, and the effect of that action will
simply be to divide between two war can
didates the patriotic citizens of the District
opposed to the peace traitor, Jairus Neal.
This ought not to be it would defeat the
Very thing which it proposes to accom
plish. It would double the chances of the
1 allandigham-tuden-hammers and dimin
ish in equal proportion the chances of
electing a member to Congress, who would
support the war measures of the Admin
istration snd maintain the integrity of the
Government. And should the District be
disgraced by the sad mischance of Neal's
flection to Congress, the Union Conven
tion would have itself to thank for giving
allandigham a twin brother in treason
from the .^tatc of Iowa in the person of
the Makoney candidate for Congress.
Now, we ask, is there any sufficient
reason why true patriots, unselfish Cnion
men, and ardent supporters of this war,
should take such a course as is likely to
insure the election of a Mahoneyite to
Congress. We can think of no single
reasou. James F. Wilson, of Fairfield,
the candidate already in the field, and
stumping the western part of the District
is one among the ablest men in the State,
and was nominated upon a platform which
makes not a single allusion to party poli
tics, but would answer for the best patri
otic Union War Convention in the land.
Wilson was in the Sena& of Iowa at its
late session, and spoke and voted for the
war loan and other war measures, which
the vacancy, following upon the
heels of a Democratic nomination
for Governor on the Union ticket,
might lead to the impression that
the set purpose of the managers is to con
vert the State and the Congressional Dis
trict to the uses of the Dfltnoeracy rather
than the support of the Union, or other-
that th pro ftrv »m C.
Governor and Congress.

But the main point is this, and it is a
point which every true friend of the coun
try, zealous for the honor of the First lis.
triet of Iowa, cannot but appreciate, that
there is great dang* of the success of Neal
in ease two candidates are run against
him. There is one unexceptionable can
didate already in the field, who can beat
Neal or any other Mahoneyite, by an over
whelming majority. There is, therefore
no justification for any set of men, claiming
to be influenced only by pure motives of
patriotism, to put up another man, no more
loyal to the Union than he, in order to
jeopardise his election and possibly secure
the election of an opponent of the Admit*-
desirv to uphold tic Administration, sus
tain the war and maintain the Constitu
tion and the Union We answer unhes
itatingly in the earnest sincerity of our
inmost convictions—vote for Wilson and
elect him, let who will oppose.

Oen. Grant has returned to Cairo, of
which place and Southeast Missouri he
has command. He ordered Col. Cook to
march his troops, including the 2d and
7th Iowa regiments, from Jackson to Cape
Girardeau. They were Ixr-arrive on the
7th. Col. Ross' and Col. Decker's regi
ments having come down from Cape
Girardeau on the 8th, were posted a mile
below Cairo on the Kentucky shore, and
were guarded by the gun boat Conestoga,
while a large force was engaged in throw
ing up breastworks. The rebels disap
peared shortly after the force arrived.

Awful TrartlyalRea.
The Boston papers furnish the follow
ing particulars of an awful tragedy at sea,
on board the barque Czarina, which re
turned to that port a (jpw days ago
The barque is owned and commanded
by Mr. John Dwyer, of Boston, had been
on a voyage to Cronstadt, and was on her
return to Boston when the murder took
place.
The captain hired at Quecnstow% on
his outward voyage, John Crotter, an
Irishman, as first mate. This man was
reprimanded by apt. Dwyer,on the loth
of July last, for the bad condition of the
vessel. After that no more trouble of
consequence oecuired until two days be
fore the murder, when a dispute took,place
in the cabin, resulting in the throwing of
a plate at the captain by Crotter, which
inflicted a wound upon his head.
On the night of July JiOth, sometime
during the "middle watch," Crotter was
sent by a boy at the wheel to go down into
the captain's cabin. It afterwards ap
peared that he had murdered the captain
with an axe as he was sleeping in hisberth.
He then put on soinu of the captain's
clothes and t«*k his money, went on deck
again at 4 a. m., and murdered the second
mate, Mr. Cammett, of Boston, probably
with the saute weapon.-
During the day, the crew, finding that
Crotter Wos a reckless and desperate mur
derer, consulted together and agreed to
kill him. (living a pledge, each to each
to stand by the other, they commenced the
attack on the next day—.July 31st. Crot
ter, however, was not in the humor to sub
mit, and a* the crew came around he pro
duced a pair of revolvers loaded with ball.
The attack and defense which followed
was of a most desperate character. The
carpenter who made a pass at Crotter was
shot and thrown overboard by him. The
boy at the wheel threw the carpenter a
rope, which he caught, but Crotter upon
perceiving it cut it, and the carpenter
soon after t»auk. Another tuan then ap
proached, who was shot at by 'rotter, but
at the moment the former jumped up sud
denly and the ball lodged in the shoulder
of a Russian passenger. At this time one
of the crew who had an adze in his hand,
for self defense, struck Crotter a severe
blow in the shoulder, which cowed some
what the murderer. It soon appeared this
wound was mortal, and he wa.s placed in a
nrj nftoP eoyrol 1%
horrible raving, he died.
The temaiuder of the ere* hare been

Boston and discharged.

more than twice as large, and the gun is
consequently more than twice an powerful.
These two guns, the 12-inch rifled and

A Visit (MHip Warren*
Mr.
EDITOR
We had the pleasure of
spending la:t Saturday and Sunday in the
camp of the 1st Cavalry Kcg'unent of
Iowa, now rendezvoused at Burlington.
We found the regiment in good condi
tion—that is, we found them comfortably
quartered, in good health, with plenty to
eat, and at a safe distance from the mur
derous fire of the enemy. Col. Warren is
in command, mid seems to be gaining the
confidence and gooa wilbof his men. The
regiment is under good discipline, and
order and harmony prevail* throughout
the entire camp.
A week or ten days ago all of tbe field
officers resigned for the purpose of allow
inga new election, and an election was had,
which resulted unanimously in favor of
Warreu for Colonel, Torrenee for Lieut.
Colonel, and Leflmgwell for Major but
the result not being satisfactory to some
of the former incumbents, who were de
posed thereby, they reconsidered their
resignations, and desired the continuance
of their commissions. All the facts are
before the proper department, but tbe re
sult is not yet known. Col. WarTen's po
sition is cerUin, and there is no doubt but
that Capt. Torrenee is well qualified for
the post of Lieutenant Colonel, as he is
perhaps the beat military man in camp,
and is a universal favorite with the men
of the regiment. Leffingwell is highly
spoken of. The men of Capt. Torrence's
company wh are devotedly attached to
him will be very reluctant to give him up.
Hut in case of his promotion, Lieut. Mc
Queen, who will take his place, stands
high in their favor, and will no doubt fill
the position with credit to himself, Mid to
the entire satisfaction of his men.
The equipage of the regiment has not
yet been obtained, except a few saddles
made in Burlington but it is expected
that the contract for saddles will be tilled
in a week or ten days. Two huudred are
to be made iu Burlington, the balance are
to come front Chicago, ('apt. Thompson,

c»M by Phillip\ iete cn was, "Go forwardso it is to
answer from Col. War­
hoped that they will obtain their new
clothes before winter sets in. Their arms
arc expectcd. The hospital of the regi
ment is in good condition. The surgeon,
Dr. Cochran, seems to be doing all he
can to promote the comfort of the sick.—
The health of the men is good, only ten
being in the hospital, and two of them are
there owing to injuries received at the heels
of refractor? horses. Everything in the
premises is clean aud in order, and a degree
of comfort prevails that we did not ex
pect to find in a camp hospital. The Dr.
has not yet, however, received a full sup
ply of hospital stores, owing to the larg*
demand made upon the Government at
this time, and we hope that the Burling
ton ladies in their kiudly attentions to our
soldiers, will not entirely overlook the
lioxpital.
On Saturday night we listened to the
weekly report of Company "A" (Capt.
Torrence's). The report was full of in
terest, and the captaiu gave every little
matter connected with the comfort of his
men all the attention that they could have
desired. The manner in which he talked
with them, and the attention and respect
with which his advice was received, re
minded us of a good, kind father, counsel
ing affectionate, obedient children. Com
pany A is considered the best company in
the regiment.""
On Sunday we Attended the morning
services of the regiment in a grove ad
joining the camp, where the ehaplaiu, the
Kev. Mr. Lathrop, delivered his first dis
course to the men—perfect order prevail
ed. There is in this regiment a large
amount of the religious element, prayer
meetings are held nightly at some oue of
the tenU.
Aft er enjoying the hospitalities of com
pany A, and a most delightful season of
Social intercourse with our soldiers' friends,
we bid adieu to Camp Warren with many*
regrets, and a heart overflowing with kind
ly feelings to the First Cavalry Regiment
of Iowa. A. W.
