vernment as It bas heretofore existed under
tbe Constitution of the United State?, to se
cure to every citizen all the rights and pri
vileges which are guaranteed to them by that

tional means in our power the plans and pur
poses of all who are en dea vor in ? to abrogate
any cf its provisions, hereby organize our
selves into a society to be known as the

Democratic Meeting in thb Second
Ward?On Saturday nignt, about twenty
Democrats, and those favorable to tne election
ol McClellan and Pendleton, assembled at Uni
ted Ball, 11 ih street, in obedience to a published
call. Among those present, ana who partici
pated in the proceedings of tbe meeting, were
J. F. Haliday, J. F. Encis, J E. Holland, Geo.
M Gmbh, W. .1. Miller, F. A. Aiken, Geo. R.
Adams. J. R. Gill, J. B. Scott, Mr. Talty and
Mr. Eubank.
Mr. J. F. Haliday was called to the ebair,
and W. J. Miller acted as secretary.
Mr. Haliday, on taking tbe chair, announced
that the object of the meeting was for the pur
pose of forming a McClellan club auxiliary to
the National Democratic Association.
On motion of Mr. J. F. ?nnis, tbe Cbair ap
pointed a committee of three, contisting of
Mesers. Aiken, Holland and Hurst, to select
permanent officers for the association.
The committee reported the following:?
President, J. F. Haliday; Vice President, J. D.
Clark; Secretary, W. J. Miller; Treasurer, G.
R. Adams.
Some discussion bere ensued as to why Mr.
Clark was selected for Vice President, as that
gentleman was not present at the meeting. It
was explained that Mr. Clark was detained by
sickness, but that be would serve, and accord
ingly the officers as recommended, were con
firmed.
On motion of Mr. Funis, tbe constitution and
by?laws of the Parent Society (National Demo
cratic Association) was adopted for tbe gov
ernment of the Second Ward McClellan Club.
Mr. J. R. Gill moved that a committee of
five be appointed to collect funds In the Second
Ward to defray the expenses of the Club. The
Chair appointed Mesers. Gill, Grub, Talty,
Alken, and J. B. Scott.
Mr. Aiken here arose and introduced a
lengthy resolution for the benefit of tbe Con
tlitutional Union. The resolution was adopted.
Mr. Adams stated for tbe benefit of the As
sociation that the room they now had posses
sion of cost ? 10 per night, and suggested that
a committee be appointed to procure another,
as they conld not afford to pay that sum.
Mr. Gill suggested that the secretary be in
structed to advertise where the next meeting
would be held.
Mr. Grubb moved that it be advertised in the
Star and Constitutional Union.
Mr. Gill objected to the Star, and wanted to
advertise in the Union and Tint's, as they were
(in bis opinion) tbe only two Democratic pa
pers in the city.
Mr. Aiken said that all of their advertise
ments should be published in tbe Union, but
if they did publish them in the Star it would
be for their own benefit, and not for the Star't.
It was finally agreed to publish in the Star,
Union, Intelligenter, and Timer.
A collection was then taken up to defray the
expenses of tbe association, which (the Chair
stated) was S13 up to tbe present time. $8.70
was realized by the collection, and the associ
ation adjourned.
?Nothing was said at this meeting about the
Union victories at Atlanta and Mobile.
Focrth Ward Democratic Meeting.?A
Muts.?A meeting of Foupth Ward Democrats
was called to meet at Parker's Hall on Satur
day nit ht. About forty-five persons appeared,
not quite one half of whom were recognized
as well known citizens of tbe ward, among
whom were Dr. T. G. Clayton, F. A. Klopfer,
Samuel Brere ton, J. D. Lakenan, H. C. M add.
Marion F. Fen wick, J. H. McCutchen. T.
Herbert, and-Fitzgerald.
Tbe meeting was called to order by Mr. S.
Brereton, who nominated Mr. F. A. Klopfer
ne chairman. Mr. Brereton was nominated
and elected Secretary.
Same one wanted to know if this was a per
manent or a temporary organization.
Mr. J. D. Lakenan proposed to make it a per
manent organization, with tbe present officers.
[It was evident here that there was much
dissatisfaction with the officers elected, and
there was every indication that the meeting
would not be a harmonious one, for three or
four gentlemen were asking questions and
speaking at once.]
Mr. H. C. Mudd asked Mr. Lakenan to state
his proposition, and what he meant by a per
manent organization.
Mr. Lakenan said he proposed to make the
Soeiety auxiliary to the National Democratic
Association, and let all put their shoulder to
tbe wbeel and show that the people of the 4th
Ward fully endorse the Chicago nominee. [Ap
plause.] He insisted npon bis motion for a
permanent organization.
Justice Clayton said there was evidently a
dissatisfaction, and as this was the last night
of tbe week and beads of families would like to
be at home, and as there was much for theclob
to do he would propose the appointment of a
Committee to draft resolutions and nominate
officers, and report at a future meeting.
Mr. Klopfer (chairman) said that it was un
derstood this was a meeting of tbe Democracy
of tbe 4th Ward for the purpose of effecting an
organization. The meeting could not be organ
ised without the election of officers.
Mr. Lakenan insisted on his motion for a
permanent organization.
[Cries of "question," ?'question," ?put the
motion," &c, amid which one or two gentlemen
left in disgust.]
Mr. Mndd asked if Mr. Lakenan mean t a per
manent organization for a club or simply that
the present officers be permanent.
Mr. Lakenan replied that tbe club would be
auxiliary to the Democratic Association, and
he propof ed to make it permanent.
Mr. Mudd said he understood the motion of
the gentleman at first to be that the occupant
of tbe chair be made permanent chairman.
He thought it best to have a committee to select
officer?.
Mr. Clayton here obtained the floor, and ar
gued in favor of his motion, and of tin adjourn
ment to some tutore night.
Mr. Lakenan here Interrupted him to ask
some question.
Justice Clayton yielded for a moment, and
Mr. L. proceeded to make a speech on his mo
tion; when Justice Clayton appealed to tbe
Chair that he bad not yielded the floor for the
purpose of allowing a speech to be made.
Mr. lakenan thought the gentleman had.
Justice May ton.?I ask the Chair to decide.
The Chair.?I decide you have.
Justice Clayton sat down, remarking that he
wonld not create trouble. He thought the
meeting was for a temporary organization, bat
If it was the sense of those assembled to make
it permanent be would be satisfied.
The secretary here rose, and was about to
cay something.
The Cbair told him to keep quiet, and Be sat
down.
Tbe Chair was willing to pull wherever he
bad been bitched, whether in the chair or as a
private member. He felt a little delicacy in
putting the question on Mr. Lakenan'* motion,
especially as other motions had been made, bat
Lakensn assetto* preceded all He (tfeeaalr )
?tie Jostle? Clayton bad newer agreed on
politic?, and ha did not anppoae they ?wer
???Id.
Considerable confusion was bere created by
eross-firing betwes? Clayton, the Chair, Lake
r an, and others, as to which motion should
take prec?dese?, and after it closed ? gentle
man aro?? and said be would make a sugg**.
tion.
The Chair??'Do yon belong in the Foorth
w/grd?"
"No, sir."
The Cbalr.??'Then we cau't entertain your
t? r gestion. This is a Fourth ward meeting."
TbeCbair men put the question on Mr. Lake?
ran'? nomination, and he declared Messrs.
Klopfer (himself) and Breretoo President and
Secretary of the Fourth Ward Modella?
Club.
Mr. Klopfer proceeded to thank the meeting
for electing him. and was interrupted by a
n.otion ? adjourn.
Mr. Klopfer did not think that was treating
the Obair with proper respect, and he woald
not entertain the motion.
The Secretary again got np and commenced
to E?y something, and was again asked to sit
down
Mr. Klopfer then proceeded to urge all pres
ent to t?o what they could lor the election ol
Ut orse ?. Modellini.
Mr. Lnkenan moved the appointment of a
committee of five to draft resolutions. He aiso
moved that the Chair appoint the committee,
and that he be excused from serving on IL The
mo-icn prevailed, and the Chair appointed
Messrs. ? fi. Clayton, H. C. Modd, J. ?
?JcCutcben, F. Sherman, and M. T. Fenwick.
Mr. Mndd said the committee could not be
expected to report to ni?ht, and he would
therefore move an adjournment, but first wonld
like to know what evening they could have
the hall.
.lnstice Clayton thought they could obtain i:
Tuesday night
Mr. Lakenaa moved the appointment of a
committee on finance, and Measra. T- G.
ClaytoB, F. Herbert and Mr. Fitzgerald were
appointed.
Mr. J. F. Ernie he ?-e appeared in the ball,
and being called upon, said he had just re?
turned from a meeting in the Second Ward,
whore a clab had been succisinlly and har
moniously formed. He urged upon all to
work hard and do what they could for the
ticket.
The meeting then adjourned until Tuesday

Union victories at Atlanta and Mobile.

Sept. ??tb, Evening.?1 he batterla? on the right
and centre of our lines kept up quite a lively
tire to-day at intervals. The noise made by
the cars, as they parsed toward the fro ut, at
tracted|the attention of the enemy, and they en
deavored to interrupt the operations of the
road, but without success.
Among the regiments whose term of service

lost a largennmberof men at Chancellors ville,

been in command during the campaign, and
was wounded seven diffrrent times. None of
his wounds were, however, ot a serions char
acter. New Jersey will, doubtless, give these
veterans snch a reception as is due to their
bravery and the important services which they
have rendered.
The Richmond Examiner of to-day contains
a despatch from Hood's array, datfd Septem
ber 7, which eaya : "Yesterday our advance
drove the enemy from Jonesboro, and recap
tured the hospital, containing ninety of onr
wounded. Sherman continued to draw back
toward Atlanta for the purpose, it is reported,
of strengthening the works on the eastern,
western, and southern approaches thereto.
Fifteen hundred will cover our losses from all
causes in the battles and skirmishes of last
week. The army is now in fine spirits."
m.ttsmi'.eh Hi, A. M?At a point of onr line.
jnet west of the Jerusalem plank road, oc
cupied by the 3d divsion of the 2d corps, the
pickets have been so close together that they
could converse without difficulty. On a par:
ot this line, and some distance lu the rear of
their advance, the enemy had thrown up aline
of slight works, with the int. ntion, it is sup
posed, of tailing back to them when occasion
mirht demand. It was determined las:
night to drive them back to this line, and thus
strengthen our own.
About midnight, when all was quiet, the di
vision was formed in line of battle, and the
picket line being reinforce?!, was ordered to
advance. The rebels were evidently not pre
pared lor such a movement a? they were com
pletely taken by sarpiise, aid nearly theentire
line capturprt. Tbey made every effort to re
take the lo;t grennd, b it d :J not 'uoceed; and
our men now occupy the line, and are secure
ly entrenched. We took about one hundred
prisoners, while our own loss was very ligh'.
Desultory firing has been kept up in that vi
cinity all the morning, and the enemy evident
ly feel sore at being so taken by surprise, s ?ic
cf them called out to our men, saying: "That
was a damned Yankee trick anyhow, but we'll
pay you up lor it before long."
