Hardlywill the national birth-day, July 4, 1770, be a more marked day on the page of the future historian. Four millions of votes, perhaps more and certainly but few lees, will I cast on that day to determine w hcthcr Abraham Lincoln or George B. McClellan shall be President of the United States for the four years from the 4th day of March next. We need not dwell upon the vast consequences to this nation and to the cause of good govern ment and free institutions throughout the world, which arc involved in the decision of this question. Never before did the world see a great nation in arms to pressrve its unity, its frte institutions, its honor, its ery existence even as a nation in the eyes of at other nations, against a rcliellion so vast in its proportions, so dishonorable and wicked in its origin, so malignant in its purposes, and so atrocious in its conduct, as that which the Government of the United Statez has had to contend with, since Abraham Lincoln was elected to tbe Presidency. That n hellion, under God's blessings on the labors and sac rifices of true-hearted men in the council and in the field, is now, to all human nppoa ranees, rapidly ncaring the hour of its final and com plcte overthrow. Every day it grows weaker and its promoters at home and abroad lccome more deeply disheartened. Every day show s the power of the nation to be stronger than ever before; and the determination of its loyal people to make no compromises with treason, is, Jif possible, more intcnc than it was when the rebellion first broke t.. There is no occasion to rehearse the reasons why Abraham Lincoln was re-nominated for the Presidency, nor those which led to the nomination of George B. McClellan in oppo sition to himj Tliey are generally pretty well understood by this tunc. It is enough for us to ask our readers to look at the kinds of persons who will certainly vote the one ticket, and then at tbe kinds who will just as certainly vote the other. It will be easy for each reader to decide which of these two groups he prefers to vote with. Who Will Vote For Lincoln and Johnson. Every man who believes that the United States is one distinct nation, among the nations of tbe earth, with all the powers for eclf-prescrvation against those who from without or witbm seek to destroy it which any nation nas tnat it einooaics many States and Territories, political coinmuni ties with important powers and right, for internal purposes, but in no sense nation. as the United States is a nation,and with no right to separate themselves from it and to set up independent nationalities ; every man who believes that the rebellion was utterly wrong, contrived and entered upon by ambi tious men, and that it must be put down ef fectually no matter at what cost, or the na tion will lose its lofty place among the na tions of tbe earth and become a prey to in ternal dissensions ana tbe encroachments of foreign powers, who hate the free principles on which the national organization is based, and who will be ever eager to forward any scheme which can help to break it up and destroy it ; every man who has felt that tbe existence of slaveiy in our country has al ways been a reproach and an injury to it, and in conflict with tbe fundamental ideas of liberty and justice for all men which were meant to underlie our institutions; every man who believes that the rebellion was be gun in the interest oi slavery, and who re joices that in tbe Providence of God it bids fair to bring with its own overthrow the ov erthrow ol slavery also, so that hereafter we hall be a united and free people forever ; every man who has been himBclf ready to spend money, time, strength, and even life itself if needed, to sav his country from dis ruption, who if he could not go has bid den tbe eon and the brother God speed, when he buckled on the armor in his country's cause, and for whom, if he fell on the battle field or from disease in camp or rebel prison, he mourned not as for one whose life was thrown away, but as for one whose mem ory should ever be honored and cherished with that of the patriots of every age and nation; every one whose countenance has lighted up with joy and his blood circulated with quicker and livelier throb when he beard of the glorious victories of Farragut, of Grant, of Sherman and Sheridan, because be saw that the end of this most atrocious and hor rible rebellion was so much the more rapid ly drawing near ; every man who has been Itsa safer to find fault because everything baa not been done by those charged with our national affairs just as bo thinks it should baTc been done, than bo has to re joice at things well done; every man who says to himself, come what will of aecri ficc or suffering, it eball never be said of mc by any one who shall carry a drop sf my Hood in bis Teins or feels on interest in the honor of his progenitor, that in the hour oi m country's greatest trial, I gave a vote such as those in rebellious aims against the law ful government of my -country, Fuch as my country's most nvilinant enemies abroad, wished me to give ; all those, ro a man, will vote for Lioi-j and Johnson. Who will Vote lor McClellan nnd Pen- dleton. Every man who, like Horatio Seymour and Fernando Wood, said at the first that the lontgoincry Constitution was Iiettor tbsn tbe Umted States Constitution, and was ready to adopt it ; every man who said at the lirst and has kept on saying that the southern States had a rrght to fecede and set up an independent GovcmtKot of their own, if they pleased to do to, and that the United States Government had no right to compel their obedience ; every man who said at tbe Erst and B?.s persisted in saying that the gov ernment can never conquer the rc'iels, and mayo? well let them go first as last ; every man who has kept up a howl that this is nothing but an " abolition war," begun and carried on for "niggers"; every man who believes that slavery is on the whole a justi fiable thing, and that under no circumstances, not even as n measure of war, ought lo in the relet States to be made free witlsMt the consent of their owners ; every man who is not willing that men vvtiut: skins God made to be black should stand side by side ! with men whose skins God made to lie white, to fight for their common country; every man whose face has Ixrn over spread with a cloud when be lias I heard of the victories of Farragut, of Grant, I of Sherman, of Sheridan, the feeling within I him being that such results wvre unfsvora- 1 ble for the success of his candidate ; every man who has had little or nothing to say j asainst Jeff Davis and his rebel associate, but whose mouth lias Ix-cn full of slander and cuising against "Abe Lincoln" and the mem- , bers of his cabinet; every man who don't ire what becomes of the Government, nor whether the rebel States are allowed to have , their independence or arc coaxed back into the Union by allowing tlie slave-holders to have their own way all over the United States and to have the expenes of their war 1 against the nation paid for out of the rv'a- it . .! .1... 1 r """a """-J' "" " icr aaminiBteruu uii 1 in i-tn-swts.jun principle, if only there can be peaa ; every man who has bought confederate bonds for a trifle and wants a chance to realize a htrge profit on them by a rise every gambler and every keeper ol a gambling boose, brothel. or r.laec of thieves' resort in New York, everv , , , . , . ,. er and passer of counterfeit money, every en try thief and every receiver of stolen goods ; every deserter from the army and every man who has helped and encouraged others to de sert; all thecc, to a man, will vote for Mc Clellan and Pendleton ! We do not say that every man who goes for McClellan and Pendleton belongs to some one of these or kindred classes ; for we know- that many, really ignorant of the great is sues before the country, will, from obi habit and prejudice fur a party name, vote that ticket ; but if there be a man of ill the classes wc have enumerated who does not fa vor the election of McClellan and Pendleton, we shall be glad to learn of his name that wc may make a note of it. Reader, do you propoe to vote with such men? Army Correspondence of the Free Press. FROM THE VERMONT CAVALRY. Sear Free Prcst : Winciiesteb,, Va., Oct 21st, 1861. I have the pleasure now of informing you of one of the most brilliant charges" of this war, made by the regiment in the battle of day before yesterday. Lt CoL Bennett has receipts from Gen. Custer for (21) twenty-one pieces of artil lery, (12) twelve caissons, (200) two hundred prisoners, and (30) thirty wagons, all taken by the regiment, in the charge of that day. The loss of the reg't is very small The brave Capt Watson, Co. L, was severely wounded in the shoulder; only one other of the regiment was track. The men behaved superbly. The lot- tie throughout was a great success, although our loss was severe in the 6th Corps. The "old men" of the regiment have not yet received orders to "march to Vermont," but are daily looking for the order.

The Agricultural College qaeitha is the main j subject of interest here "A present Petitions continue to come in for the repeal of the act of j latt year, incorporating the Vermont State Uni- versity amd Associate Colleges, and prayfag for the establishment of t separate Axriralraral j College. Mr. Hebard of Chclseu, VruUght in a bill this morning in accorJancs with the instructions of the select committee on the Agricultural Col- j lege, providing for an extension of the time ft" colleges to nnite with said University from No vember to January. Mr. Hebard explained that more time than from now until 'uver-!x-r was required to consiJtr this imprtanl subject The bill passed both houses immediately, under a suspension of the rvlo. This will in some measure relieve tbe pressure brought to bear upon the Legislature with regard to this sub ject A large numlier of petitions came in this morning asking for a charter for a railroad trow Ilutland to Castleton. A bill entitled an act to organize the nulitia was introduced yesterday afternoon. Iiiscussions thus fir have been mostly cenau ed to committee rooms. It seems probable tbat there will before long be discissions in tue two Houses. Tbe Committees cannot well delay much longer reporting upon some of the impor tant measures of the session. An interesting meeting to talk about the sol diers was held in tbe Representatives Hall last evening.

The charge made by the 'N. 'J. brigade, under Col. McAllister, on the enemy who bad got in the rear of our force-, was one of the finest ever witnessed, nnd saved the entire position. All it now quiet with the exception of picket firing which is quite lively at night. There was no rebel raid upon Uufcald ?un day", as W"W reared, tiro city bw'nr; patrolled by military and guards ststvonnd st "everal places. New spa per corresjiondents give the follow ing details of Gen. Grant's movement last Thursday. The 1st division of the 2d corps, with rt of the 5th corps, held the entire line from tho ApponiatWx on the right to some three miles west of the TVeldun railroad on toe lelt. All baggage wagons, Ac., were sent to tbe roar of City Point. At two o'clock Thursday morning. Gen. Hancock, with the 2d and 3d divisions of his corps, marehed along the Vaughn road runing southwest, and after crossing ''batcher 'a tun found the rebels entrenched in newly made works. Gen. Hancock at om-e charged them on tlie tlank and druvc them out arid took some 20 prisoners, mostly cavalry. The 5th corps took: the Squirrel road and found tbe rebel' potud at us junction with the Duncan road which runs north Irom the Vaughn rumd to tbe llviynton ruad. From this they were driven by our skirm ishers with some loss, tbe 1st division hav ing some 40 wounded in tbe atlair. Tbe 3d division of this corps took the advance and crossing Hotelier's run, connected with the S.-ootid eorjie. Meantime, Gen. Hancock advanced along and U-yuud, driving the rebels' before him until be reached the IJoyn iou plank road, where the column nalted and formed in line ot battle. Tbe 5th corim bad formed and advanced through the woods two mites, but the lull ol the line tailed to con nect with tbe right of the 2d corps. f be rebels fell back as be advanced, until the line reached Thatcher n run again, when the iebeis were found behind strong en trenchments, nnd brisk firing enxieil hut without los on either side. At about 4 P. M. tbe enemy taking advantage of tbe break between the 2d and 5th corps, matted Gen. Anderson's division of Hill's corps and charged tbe right wing of tlie 2d cords which gave way and leli back a short distance. but receiving reinlorceuieuts charged and checked tbe advance ot tlie rebels and rap tured a number of prisoners. Our loss in tbe anair is not known, but it is not believed to be heavy. A tew minutes after, tbe rebel cavalry which had been cut off on the lloyntun road, made an attack on Gregg's division, directly in tbe rear of tbe 2d corps, and fur a time quite a sharp skirmish was kept up. Gen eral Gregg dismounted some of bis men and filially drove tbem oil. In tbe charge on tbe 2d cor two guns were said to have been taken by tbe enemy, but it is slated that they were subsequently re-captured. Fighting continued on this art of tbe line until alter dark, when a heavy rain storm set in, putting an end to tlie nghting of the day. Toe 9th corps occupied the right of tlie advance but did not gain much ground. The object was to allow the left to get fairly round on tbe Hoynton plank ruad before his right advanced. Gen. Gregg 's cavalry had a sharp fight with the enemy in tbe forenoon w ben they attacked the rear of bis column. He charged and drove them hack, capturing a number of prisoners, eight or ten wagons loaded with supplies together with some horses, mules, Ac. Our left wing gained about 15 miles of country, and is now in a position to at tack tbe enemy" work on the flank. Gen.

At ten o'clock they offemi him tlto vice presidency, and be went fvc'r. ' The loon ?'.wi, which tried lately to make so much of the McClellan movement, says in its issue of the 10th ult: "According to the present appearance of af fairs, the barque of the Democratic party has fuundercd before it got out to sea. History has no greater failure to record than the gnat Dem ocratic Chicago Convention." Mr. Vallandighatm in r. ,c4te tq tbe New York totrj, boasft thai he wai the author ot the t-ecpd,rt-olutionof the Chicago pLntfurin which declares the war a failure and de mands a cessation of hostilities. He says be did not optiose McClellan in the Convention, as hi' interest wai almost wholly confined to the platform, but, while voting against him at first, he voted for him finally, and moved to make his nomination unanimous. All the old arrogant slave-driver and aris tocrat spoke in Jefferson Davis when, in a recent speech at Columbia, South Carolina, be said of the " Yankees": "Do vou not all know that the only way to make spaniels ci- wwn lira, liiuunij , iu mKe riaiiaw ti- vll is to whip them ?'' la there a man of prujar spirit, Democrat or Republican, who " iwuiii 10 -me e.111011 s 11 v when such fellows as Davis cracked their whip on the l'oor of Congress ?

We should never forget that a man caanot be a true iAaaoerat unless be is a loyal patriot." TVben tbe rebels attacked our garrison at Resaea, Ga., tbeir rallying cry was "Hur rah for McClellan."

McClellan s peaceful inclinations and his talent for negotiating with reld, Gen.

McClellan instructed one of hu staff officers to sound tbe 000 federate officer upon tbe subject of a peaceful restoration of tbe I'mon.
