Shugert, then presented the follow ing Resolu ions which were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That the Democratic party is, and always has been, true to the Up ion, the Constitution and the laws, and that whilst we adhere with.unwavering devotion to its ►organization as a conservator of right, tnete iug to all classes, whether North or South, equal and exact justice, we wage no war upon 'he present legally constituted author ities but. on the contrary recognize and commend to them the great fundamental duty of seeing "the laws faithfully exeeu ted," whether in the suppression of Southern rebellion, or infractions of the Constitution and laws "elsewhere. Resolved, That our union of States being formed in peace and compromi ?e, and here tofore maintained upon that basis as the spirit of the Government, should be so held, and, that whilst we would counsel no relaxa tion in a determined purpose to crush the re bellion now existlng-in one portion of our once happy Union, at any cost and at any sacri fice, it is no disloyalty to the Government — il is 110 violotion of our duty as American citizens—it is no sympathy with treason, to prefer, and express the preference for an honorable compromise of existing difficulties at any period of the controversy. Resolved, That the country being in a state of war and the Government struggling .for National existence, it is no time to dis cuss the causes which produced the difficul ties. or to countenance or encourege private, sectional or political animosities. W.e therefore proclaim ourselves loyal to the whole Union, as our lathers made it, with an unfaltering purpose to sustain and sun port tile Administration in all proper efforts to avert rebellion and establish the suprema cy of the laws. To this end we recommend 10our fel'ow citizens of all parties, forbear ance in a patriotic devot on and a single purpose to aid, by all the means in our power, a vigorous prosecution of the war to a successful termination. Resolved. That we have entire confidence in the ability and patriotism of the gentle men named by this Convention for the re spective offices, and take pleasure in com mending tho Ticket formed to the unanimous and vigilant support of the Democracy of Centre county. Resolved, That we cordially endorse the course that has been pursued by onr two • Democratic papers—the Watchman and Reporter—in boldly and fearlessly speaking the truth, and hurling back, with indignity, the charges of treason and disloyalty that have been cast at the Democratic party by the opposition press, and at the same time they supported the military arm of the Gov ernment, in maintaining the Union they favored a pat, rful settlement of the difficul - ties in which our nation is involved. Southern Mechanics. I he, Cincinnati Copitnercial publishes a let' r to a r- be! soldier, found on tho hartle. field of Rob M untaiti. It was written from Georgia, and the following paragraph gives tie important inform vi n of an intended movement of the white agai;i3t the black mechanics : We are going to kick up hell in a small way muoottKt us Mechanics ve aint agoing to let the damn swell hyads tbar's got a few nigg. s keep us down on a level .with their nigg'is. We havo as good.a right to our ' igiits as an t Class of people on tcp of .God's Earth, and I am a going to pitch in body and aiicd against nigger mechanics, now is onr 'iuie ti assert pur rights, wo intend to make the niggers fake the fields i r we will every damn one of them wo find working at any trade, we have had several meetings here ibjiit tt, and with such good effait that we have, got tiie good will of a large portion of the sensible people..in town but there is a few swell heads that kick against us like h —ll, but we intend to bring tbpm round with a j -rk. there is no use talki 'g as long as we softer nigger mechanics we aint no uto-c of than the niggers, 'he-' have run ih-m all out of Atlanta so I heard I l ope to God they, will ,rtvn : them out of every damn place in the South. • Let them put all the niggers in the field they w ill need Gem 'here to unike someiingto eat or else they w ill have to keen buying from (he North usu il, hut if they put them ail in tiaid we will be an independent nation in reality, for we can raise enough to Eat on our own soil and probably have some to eell instead of having to buy * * if the mechanics through out the whole S.uth dont put them down they are a damn sett of as-cs as for my part I intend to kick and nglit against them until we root era out. An Important Order. The repcr-'ed order of Gen. McCiellan in reference to a charge in the color of tin; uni form to he worn by our troops, is one of the greatest importance. On several occasions since, the commencement of the rebellion have disasters occurred from the mi.srakirig of our enr-niies for our friends, through the similar ity .ofthe uniforms, and it is not idle to sup pose that in some great decisive conflict a blunder of this sort may cause a disastrous and even a ruinous defeat. In the late great battle -near Springfield, Missouri, it appears that our troops, mista king a regiment of the rebels for one from lowa, attempted no resistance till the enemy were within pistol shot, and had poured in upon thrin a most destructive fire. That portion of our men opposing this rebel regi ment lost heavily, fell into confusion, and were rot again re-organized and brought, iu to effective action throughout the whole COE flict.. Ilad our men fired at them when with in cannon or musket, range, and thsn char ged, they doubtless would have repulsed and thus have changed the order of the day. We earnestly hope that the Government will take step': to guard against such danger ID the fuiure. Friend and foo must be dis tinguishable at the distance of a mile, Expulsion ofa Traitor.

News from Washington. EFFECTIVFNE-3 <>F THE HLOCKADS. We shall probably hear very little more of the ineffectiveness of the blockade. The en ergetic efforts of the acting Sectetftty of the Navy have been crowned wiih success. -There are now one hundred and twenty-one ves sels either actively employed in the bhuk ade, or else being prepared for th.at service. This includes the gun-boats, which, being properly armed, aro the most effective ves sels for th° service. The gun-boat Pinola. now faing built at Baltimore, ia nearly com pleted. It is a vessel of great strength, nnd will have a powerful armament. It is un der-tood that at an early day seme extensive naval movements will be made, which will putti very different c itnplexion on affairs in Southern waters. THE BALTIMORE PAPERS. It will ho gratifying news to (he publish ers and editors of Northern papers, to know that the Government have at last determined to prevent the Baltimore newspapers from publishing the movement, nf troops, or any news that will give t .e Rebels such infer-, raation as may interfere with the crushing of the Rebellion. The Union sheets, yf course, willingly acceded to the request to refrain from the publication, hut ilie Rebel organs acquiesce with a bad g- ace. There are few treasonable sliee's in the South more ultra in their doctrines than the Exchange, llc puUican and Eouih, to say Dothing of the Nun. Tney have published each day the arrival and departure of regiments and companies, with the respective numbers of each, evi- j dentlv with the sole intention of having ihe ! information transmitted to Richmond, and ! thus laughed at and circumvented the, pra cautioo taken by the papeis in the North.

Thefollnwing nre all the particulars we can of the battle which took j lace at Cross ■ Lanes, near Summersvi le, Va., on Monday, the 26th instant, it appeirs to have been a bloody affair.

A rele vant to this comparison the Revend gentleman stated that the best Remedies employed there for the diseases to which they are subjeet, inven ted and supplied to them by our well known coun tryman, Br. J. C. Ayer of Lo-.vel, .VI ass., and that not the people paly but the priesth od and the court ot tne Emperor down, have constant re course in ,-iekness to the Remedies o' this widely celebrated American Chemist..— Ledger, Jioston. We take great pleasure in calling the at i teution of our readers to the advertisement of | Prof. Wood's Restorative Cordial and Blood Kens | ovator. in another column of our paper. It is ! seldom v.e take ar.y notice of patent medicines, but we cannot refrain from speaking of this Cors dial, and do justice to the afflicted as well as our selves. V.'e have wtt-hed the progress of this Cordial since its first introduction to the public, , and we aro satislied that tnere is nothing in use : for cleansing the system and renovating the hood, ; that can be compared with Prof. Wood's Cordial. ; Any one suffering lrom gen rat debility, alter us ing one bottle will see its beneficial effects. We have had a long acquaintance with the proprietor, and know him to 1 e skilled in the science cf med icine; and anything compounded by him the pub lic con rely upon as being just wh it it is recom mended. We would advise all sick or well to get a bottle. It is plpasanl to the ta to. and exhilar ating to the system. But "we refrain from further comments, as any one after using one bottle, will be satislied as to its effects. Reader, have you seen Prof. Wood's ad vertisement in pur paper. Read it; It will inter est you.
