It is not yet ascertained that it wee tbe steamer Mont, gomery tbat chased ber ashore; but it is supposed that sbe was tbe vessel, because Captain Hunter was cruising for the Rlaoche, baring bad information respecting ber mo v assents. Tho true version of tbe affair Is Ibis:?Tbs Blanch,, was ran asbora by bar captain (.<mltb), a noted rebel, becauso be found tbat escape from our cruiser was impossible, and wben boarded by our boats sad wblle eur men were ou tbe deck of tbe vessel, eba wis no doubt flred by ber rebel remmander and destroy* ad, tbat be might cla m damages of tbe Rpaalab govern ment, on tbe ground tbat she was under Spanish prolec tion, and tbat our people set ber oo Ore.

TheGovernors of Iowa, Michigan, lllluois and Indiana have gone on to Washington to attend the Gubernatorial Conference. They will probably remain over Sunday a* B.urrisburg, and from thouea,on Monday, tliey will pro ofed o WaiA ngton, accompanied by Governor Curtin. Jn addition to the proposition* I went you lam night, which will be submitted to tha Tonvention, embracing a demand for a change In the commands of tbe eastern and Western armies In the field, a vigorous prosecution of the war and a oh.- nge in tbo treatment of rebels, 1 have It up m what Is deemed tbo best authority,that propositions r have been re eived in Washidgton, by those in an thorny, from leading Southern men .suggesting the holding of a national convention,at which representatives from ail parties of tbe Union shall att'uid, to consider Uic fousihtii ty of settling the present difficulty. It Is understood that tbe South proposes as a basis (4 settlement? P.r :?That the Vorth shall recognize the Stato rights doctrin" o." secession, which they claim is to ho found in the celebrated resolutions of 1798 and '39, written by Thomas Jefferson and James Madtson. Second?That tbey shall return fugitives from labor, or pay their value to their owners. It Is also understood that they will accept the Critten den compromise as a basis of settlement relating to slavery In the Territories. If tbe Governors do not sanction tho holding of such notional convention, then they are to unite in deman ting of the President a vigorous prosecution of the war. A violent snow storm.Is raging here to night. Wasipnutos, Oct. 2ft, 18S2. The Convention of Governors, to bo held here, is tho topic of macb convorsatiou. Comments are various. Some people speak with contempt of such Inlerferynce with tbe management of oar army and tbo national af" lairs. The efforts of th* Governors to control the admin. jStrntion have beon hitherto of so little benelil to th? country that many of the sbrowdest observers here do. Clare that they bad better stay at home. 1 am authorised to say that Governor Curtin, although feeling sore on the subject of tbo rebel Stuart's raid into Pennsylvania, wiH never join a Slates'rights cabal against General McClellan. One of the reports in regard to this prospective On von tion is, that it is to be held In reference to intrigues of luiKland with Span against us, and tbo prospect of h< h tilities between the United Stales and Rutland within six months.
