grand success near Winchester is nonvl us
the first victory achieved by tin; national arms in
the Shenandoah valley. But it is so mai;uittcent
in its proportion! ns completely to w-ipe out tliu
long scries of revcr-cs wnich have given to th i'
region the designation of "J he Valley of Humilia
tion." 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

"A slight ripple of excitement was produced

of all our inquiries on this head is, that this report
originated In the fact that early yesterday a

CITY INTELLIGENCE.
StAlB OF TllllllMOMHTKa To IIAV. 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

that city numbered four. They did no work
while on the trip southward. Tney went for the
purpose cf taking charge of the New York null
from Wa-hington, llahimorc. and PhiUd Iphla,
and returned to New York with that unit, which,
they despatched by the way. I'ho New York cr
took on I oard lialtimore and Washington clerks
at a point south of lh, city, and th s men dis
tributed the mails for Ha timoro, Washington,
and other points, bef'.re the car arrived ut th se
cities; as tho New York clerks distributed the
mail for New York and elsewhere before tho
Washington car arrived there. The plan f de

incident to the new service.
On the car which left New York last nl i;li,.1 tho
Superintendent of the New Y ork mails came to
this city. A telegram was sent during the fore
noon to Mr. Waiturn, reqiie-ting him to sen I
eh rks to New Yoi k to uiulcruiko the distrlbuti u
ot the mails beiwi en that city and this; but the
tclrgiuin arr veil too Ian to despatch the clerks
by the '2 P. M. train, so that the m i'l for this
Post Otlice was received at midnight unassorted.
This morning, however, Mr. Wil'iorn sent
three cletks to New Y'ork, who will leave tint
city nn the Washington train nt 7i o'elo k tins
evening, and tho work of distribution will be done
by them (luring the passage of the Ir iln to t'os
i y. l inn it w ill be seen th it the mails for tho
est at d mher points will be readv f r forward
ing iu the early morning trains, the work being
finished by the tune the train reaches Wust l'uil i
il Iphia. At this point mads for the South will
be put aboard the New York and Wastim rtori
tram, aud it is also tho design of Mr. Wain on to
p ace two assorting clerks upou this train t -night.
In tho nrrangetnpnt of this postal railway tho
letteis are so separated that tho-e for tbo ho.v'9
of the po-t cilice, according to tho "srl ns"
Into which the five or six thousand boxes are
divided, can bo distributed at once at this oillt-c;
that the letters lor the callers at tho "general

nnd that the lette rs for tho aarrlcrs and f ir the
"stations" Iu this city cau be given out on the
arrival of the tiain here.
The cars contain every convenience which has
been thought necessary for a thorough perform
ance, of the work. Besides tlio sevi ral hundred
"pigeon holes," into which the m id nuttier is
distributed tlicso pigei'ti-holes covering a spice
equal to ono entire side of the ear there is sul
ticient room for the mails, the tables required by
the clerks, and for working spMC. Th'-rc are
also conveniences for resting and sloepinir, and
altogether the cars are titled up with much ta-to
and beauty. This curly delivery Is ono of tho
first of the effects of the new system ; and our
citir.cns who desire to send letters southward at a
late hour iu the evcuing can do so n lieu thu train
starts from West Philadelphia, bci'oie midnight
this evening.
Rk.ti'UN or a Iti;oiMi:NT. Tho 101th Pennsyl
