The loss to the enemy in killed, wounded, and prisoners will, it is believed, reach not less than ten thousand, while the circumstances of the enemy's defeat lento Early's army in n condi tion little, short of absolute rout and demorali zation. ropu!ar logic will doubtless associate this bril liant exploit with llm recent visit of the Lieuten-ant-Ucnerul to the headquarters of General Short ' dan an association so far correct, no doubt, that, had not (icncnil Ornnt authorized General Slieri ln to assume the offensive, we should not now liavo this victory to rejoice over. This docs not, however, detract from the credit to which til it gallant ollieer Is entitled, and all the more so from the modest generosity with wh eli he ascribes all the glory of the splendid achievement to his subordinate commanders. The bearing of this oporation on the greater pioblt-m immediately belore Oonoiul tit.iiu is of ci pital importance, and will go far to decide the fate of Lie's army and Richmond. The treinen ; tlous importance of Lv uchhurg, ns covering the now only reinainiug line of railroad coinuiuiiica tlon with lUchtnond, has compelled I.ee to retain in tho valley lull one-half of bis entire force; and notwithstanding the terrible attain ho has been pnt to for lack of troops to meet the movements of Grant, tho fatal menace which the presence of Sheridan's army in the valley constantly held forth has forced Lee to submit to them, on peril of the loss of Lynchburg. The army catering thut point lias, by Sheri dan's splendid success, been disrupted and demoralized, and we may, at length, look for the execution of that movement iu tho Valley which has always been nn integral part of General Grant's programino of operations for the capture Of Richmond. O her co-operative moves, not now piooor for finbllc mention, may bo expected ; and those be-t n formed ol all tho elements of tho military situ i tion leol tho most assurance that we shall li ivo Richmond before tho Presidential election. .Veie York Tunes.

Six A. M., til. Noon, "2. One P. M. 7t'-A. Wind, W. by s. Mni.riNo at CoNcnur 11 all. An impromptu meeting took place last evening at tho Union League Hall, at which speeches wore made by Thomas l'ligeruld, Esq., Major Urown, and Thomas M. Coleman, Esq. A recitation was made by Mr. N. K. Hichardsou. aud several cam paign soegs sung by Mr. Paul lierger. Mr. l ltpi raid pointed with pride to the victo ries of cur armies, especially thatjust gained oyer tho Rebels in thu Shenandoah valley by Sheri dan, and impressed his hearers with tho necessity of preserving the fruits of these victories by stren uous and unceasing exertions to elect Ahruliiiu Lincoln in November. Mc.ii. r Iliown attributed the war and Its at'en dant rum und bloodshed, tolho doctrine of States' (tights, which had been carried to ex-rctiifts, and natuially resulted In division. Ho considered that tbe're-elei tlon of tho President would bo the popular rrnlllrmution of tho doctrine of tin) suoo- ii.tity of the National lo the State Governments. Our alh glnnro to tho tlrst was paramount, a-id tii is w ur would result in the vindication of that principle. Mr. I liotnas M. Coleman had been a Demo crat all his lite, but he had voted in tho last I'io si'len'lal cleclon for Hell and Kvero-t, bccmisj ho believed that tho eloetion of Lineo'n would cause a revolution. It did cause a revolution, but tho guilt was not up m the choice of the people then Abraham Lincoln he who will bo tho choice of tho people again. Ho hid sup ported John Hell in order to avoid wr wiii h at all times was inconvenient and terrihlo but since the South had refused to he ruled by tho people whom it had ruled during the greater pert of the existence of the republic liec iuso it had relusi d to submit to a fair decision at tho bail. it box because they had invited and tlrst levied war, hu would vote at tho November election for Abiiihum Lincoln. (Appluu-e.) Lincoln will, if sustained iu that election by tho people, prose cute tho war to a successful end. '1 he speaker discussed the question of slavery at length, citing his personal experience of it. He was born and had lived in the South for thirty years, and during that time had uncommon epportunith s of studying its workings, both on the working rla'S of whites, on tho planters, and on tho mgroes themselves. It bi utilized tho plan'crs ai d degraded the low-or classes of whites almost to the low level of tho slaves. Indoluuee and apathy in every concern of life was tho result of the system, but the war was fast extirpating it. Keferriug to the victory of Sheridan, Mr. U de li. an contended that tills victory knocked ono plank out of the Chicago platform, nnd one would be knocked out by every successive vic tory, until not a stick was left standing. Hoahd of Trade. At thu September meeting of the Executive Council of the Hoard of Trado, held on Monday evening, Mr. Sotider occupied the chair. The report ot the Committee appointed to investigate the cause of the fulling off in tho pe troleum trade during tho tlrst quarter of the year occupied the attention of the meeting. Tbo full ing oil is attributed to the luug-coutiuuod closing of tho Allegheny river daring the past winter, thus shutting off from tbo I'ennsy lvania railroad, tbeironly source of supply. The second quurttr of this year shows a large Increase of receipts as compared with the same period last yenr, nnd the total exports to foreign countries from Philadelphia from January 1 to September In, lhei4, show ti,l41,obT gallons against 4,H'.j,tsK5 gallons to the same time last year an increase of 7 tG,t'jU gallons in regard to transportation aud storage. A communication was read and referred from Th mas Adainson, Esq., Fulled States Consul at Pciniiinbueo, urging upon tho mercantile com in ii ti I ty o( Philadelphia the great advantage which would result from extended commercial inter ( rse with llruzil. He says : 'Establi-h a line ot s-eamers between Philadelphia and the ports of Ibis empire, and the tide of foreign travel and tri.de that is now louud Ukii tho shores of Great Pritain nnd France would How to our own land, l hilailelplilii might build herself up a magnifi cent Itiulii.in nude, for which her uririty ever New Voik us a tlour market eminently fits her."
